Trump Hotel to Employees: Dont Hire Relatives

Jared Kushner, President Trumps son-in-law, has presented all kinds of headaches for his White House. Forget the potential conflicts of interest, impairing both mens reputations and damaging the public view of Kushners family brand. This all would have been avoided if Trump had followed the rules governing his Las Vegas hotel, which largely bar giving top jobs to family members. We know about those rules because The handbook bars relatives from working under the direct or indirect supervision of a relative. It also bars relatives from working in situations that create the possibility of conflicts of interest, without the written approval of senior management officials. Prohibited activity includes offensive sexual jokes, sexual language, sexual epithets, sexual gossip, sexual comments or …

How The NFL’s Nick Foles Got Back Up

Before he was the 2018 Super Bowl MVP and a civic hero, quarterback Nick Foles was a gentle, nurturing kid with white-blond hair and giant hands. That’s how I remember him, at least. Nick and I were childhood friends. His size always made him seem older and more imposing than he was. He was quiet and liked to play Nintendo. Our families spent holidays together and visited each other between Texas and Louisiana. Nick’s dad, Larry, had been the manager of a Baton Rouge restaurant where my dad bartended in the late ’70s. When Nick was 8, my dad took him and my brother duck hunting in Grand Chenier, Louisiana, and Nick was more interested in caring for the injured …

Im the Dad With the Butterfly Tattoo

ShareTweetPinterest My son Jackson was born with Down syndrome. He’s been an unbelievable blessing to everyone whose life he touches, and he has taught me more about life than any other person on the planet. However, when he was first diagnosed, I did not see it as a blessing … far from it. But I soon realized that I couldn’t let it control my life … and that I could not only handle it but additionally use it to improve my life and happiness. My understanding of this concept helped me move from a state of despair to a state where I loved and appreciated the thing I once saw as an unbeatable problem. So, I did what any rational …

Josh Groban Says He’s Surprised Katy Perry Thinks He’s ‘The One That Got Away’

Katy Perry is happily dating Orlando Bloom now, but she admitted last year that she let someone special get away: Josh Groban. What’s more, the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer told James Corden, Groban “The One That Got Away.”  “Well, we did” date, the actor and singer told Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live.” “We were both very private ― so, we realized we were better as friends. And we’ve been very, very good friends to this day. She’s the best. But, I was not expecting that. That was a double take, and I spit out my coffee when I saw that.”  “I’m like, ‘I never owned a Mustang. I don’t have a tattoo. Are you sure that’s about me?’” …

5 Horrifying Real Medical Situations That Sound Made Up

Illness can appear out of the blue and turn your life upside-down, like a Zooey Deschanel character in a rom-com. But as much as you’d like to try to mentally gird yourself for any medical disaster, it’s not so easy when you’re stricken by something David Cronenberg jotted down in a notebook after a particularly intense nightmare. Just look at what happened in these cases. As reported in The Lancet, that’s exactly what happened to a 44-year-old French civil servant who had been living a completely normal life until the day he found out he was a Simpsons plot. He was married with two kids, and while his IQ was below average, it wasn’t in the range of someone with …

Down with ‘Notorious R.B.G.’

Washington (CNN)You wouldn’t expect to find Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a tattoo parlor. There are tattoos, muscle tees, YouTube serenades and judicial swag all paying homage to the small, soft-spoken justice who has been on the nation’s highest bench for 25 years — as long as some of her more devoted followers have been alive. Ginsburg leads the court’s liberal bloc, and has played an important role in key decisions on same-sex marriage, Obamacare and the death penalty. No other Supreme Court justice has had such a fan base driven by such savvy followers — intellectual devotees — who show their appreciation in such distinctly millennial ways. One website dubbed Ginsburg “The Notorious R.B.G.” loosely based on the rap …

20 Really Incredible Tattoos of Totally Weird Things

Look, if you want to get a tattoo, that is absolutely your prerogative. I’m not going to sit here and explain to you that “a tattoo lasts forever” and that “it’s not going to look like that when you get older,” because you already know the first one and the second one is a dumb argument. And I’m not going to judge your tattoo, either. Unless it’s one of these ones. While they’re all clearly done by experts who are excellent at their job, I just can’t help but wonder…why?
