The May issue of “Foodcrops and Shortages,” a publication of the Global Information and Early Warning System, blames the situation largely on civil conflict and adverse weather, particularly drought. It also notes that in many of these countries, the HIV/AIDS pandemic is a major contributing factor.In western Sudan, civil conflict which has displaced over 1 million people is leading to a grave humanitarian crisis, the agency warns. Desert locusts remain a serious threat to crops in northern and western Africa, where control operations are hampered by a lack of resources, according to the report. In southern Africa, delayed, inadequate and erratic rains caused flood damage and left many people in need of emergency food aid to survive. Zimbabwe could face acute food shortages as early estimates of 2004 food production indicate a potential deficit of up to 1 million tonnes of cereals.The report also warns that a serious humanitarian crisis continues in North Korea because of chronic food shortages. Donations have still left 600,000 core beneficiaries without their full rations in April, and new pledges are urgently needed to cover needs over the next six months.According to the report, Sri Lanka has been seriously affected by drought with rice production falling 18 per cent in 2004. Thousands of families are in need of food assistance there.The FAO reports that food assistance deliveries in Haiti had been returning to normal following improved security, until torrential rains and severe flooding struck that country as well as the Dominican Republic. Food assistance continues to be delivered in several Central American countries to rural families affected by a depressed coffee sector, the study found.
TORONTO – The Toronto Stock market closed lower after a day of choppy trading Friday as strong jobs data in the U.S. left investors anticipating a rate hike from the U.S. Federal Reserve.The S&P/TSX composite index lost 62.23 points to close at 14,957.16, while the loonie finished the day up 0.42 of a U.S. cent to 80.39 cents US.The Dow Jones industrial average was down 56.12 points at 17,849.46, the Nasdaq index rose 9.34 points to 5,068.46, and the S&P 500 lost 3.01 points to 2,092.83.The gold sector on the TSX was the biggest decliner, losing 2.3 per cent, while health care advanced the most, climbing by roughly one per cent.In economic news, May job data both north and south of the border exceeded analyst expectations.The Canadian economy created 58,900 jobs last month, although the jobless rate remained unchanged at 6.8 per cent as more people began searching for work.Todd Mattina, chief economist and strategist at Mackenzie Investments, called the data “very encouraging” following a weak start to the year on the employment front.“The pace of job growth in May was six times what economists had forecast,” Mattina said. “I think it’s the strongest report we’ve seen in more than six months.”The U.S. saw 280,000 new jobs created last month, though the unemployment rate edged higher to 5.5 per cent as job seekers flooded the market looking for work.“The strength of the U.S. payroll report increased the likelihood of Fed rate hikes around September to December,” Mattina said.Meanwhile, Greece missed its repayment deadline to the International Monetary Fund, opting instead to bundle its payments for this month into a lump sum payable at the end of the month.“Greece simply doesn’t have the cash to make all these payments,” Mattina said. “This is just another classic example of kicking the can down the road.”Concerns about the debt-laden country have introduced greater volatility to markets in recent weeks.“This environment of uncertainty will hold back growth prospects in the Eurozone more generally,” Mattina said.Shares of DavidsTea (Nasdaq:DTEA) soared more than 30 per cent during their first day of trading on the NASDAQ Friday following a successful initial public offering by the Montreal-based tea store chain.The shares were priced at US$19 per share Thursday but opened Friday at $25 and finished the day at $27.Shares of Hudson’s Bay Co. (TSX:HBC) lost 2.83 per cent to $24.04. Reports say the company is considering buying the struggling Kaufhof chain in Germany.On the commodity markets, the July crude contract was up $1.13 at US$59.13 a barrel and the August gold contract fell $7.10 to US$1,168.10 an ounce.Follow @alexposadzki on Twitter.

The terrorist group, Boko Haram, abducted Hawa Abdu and her children in Nigeria in 2014. UN Photo/Eskinder DebebeIn 2014, my mother was in Bama, a town in between the state capital of Borno State, Nigeria, and the border with Cameroon, so I went to see her. One day, we were told by the local authorities that it was not safe to stay, but I refused to move my mother because she was sick. The terrorists entered the town at 4 a.m. the next day and gathered in the market. It was beyond our power to prevent them.I heard gun shots from all sides, and in the confusion, my two children ran in one direction and I went with my mother in another. We were caught by terrorists and my mother was slapped and left on the ground.I was taken, many of us were taken, by the terrorists. We were driven to the town of Zamaimaya and then had to walk 10 kilometres into the bush.All but the young girls were forced to marry a Boko Haram fighter. I refused to begin with, however after three days I realized I had no choice but to agree, because they said if we did not marry, we would be executed. I was ordered to convert to Islam, which I did before the marriage.After I married, I was beaten a lot and given very little food. One time I spent seven days without food. Sometimes I was given dindiri or beans to eat. I suffered a lot from hunger. I hated being married to a Boko Haram fighter.The terrorists killed many people in front of us. We did not have the power to stop that happening.,The United Nations is committed to supporting people who have been attacked, abducted, injured or traumatized by acts of terrorism wherever they are in the world. Ahead of the International Day of Remembrance of and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism marked annually on 21 August, read more here about how the UN is showing solidarity with victims and survivors.,We moved around the bush a lot, changing locations day by day. God saved me during these harsh times.One day, my daughter Hadiza who is 13-years old managed to escape. I have not seen her since. I pray every day that she is still alive. I do not know where my mother is. And then later soldiers came and chased away Boko Haram, and they helped me and my other daughter, Fatima, who is now 14 years old, to escape.,She is with me in Minawao camp today.I have spent over a year in this camp and have been given food and clothes by my neighbours. I have not eaten chicken since I have been here. I sell groundnuts to make a little money. I need a mat, a pot and more clothes.I am suffering from heart disease and anxiety and cannot forget how I was separated from my parents and brothers and the killings I saw. I think about this every day.One way, I can relax is by listening to music to Hausa Fulani songs. I sometimes borrow my neighbour’s phone to listen. It makes me happy; it gives me peace of mind. Hawa Abdu, a 38-year old Nigerian mother of two was abducted by Boko Haram in 2014 and spent four years with the outlawed terrorist group moving around the north-east of Nigeria. She has been living in Minawao, a camp for Nigerian refugees in the Far North region of Cameroon, since January 2018.

European beach handball sees a new edition to its event calendar emerging, with the first edition of the Champions Cup taking place in Gran Canaria from 31 October to 2 November.After it had been confirmed by the EHF Executive Committee in December 2013 that the event will see eight women’s and eight men’s national beach handball champions competing, the European Handball Federation, after registration had started on 1 September, faced such great interest that it decided to add another two teams per event as well as another playing day.“This is great news,” said Ole Jorstad, chairman of the EHF Beach Handball Commission, in a first reaction.Places at the Champions Cup 2014 were awarded on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis, and the first teams to sign up were the Swiss men from Copaca Bale and the ‘Beachqueens’ also from Switzerland who registered their interest straight on midnight on 1 September.It then took very little time for the remaining places to fill up.The full list of participants is as follows:Men’s Champions CupBHC Detono Zagreb / CROCBMP Ciudad de Malaga / ESP“Nordlichter” Oldenburg / GERAC Kiklopes Alexandroupoli / GREDabas Beach Boy’z / HUNPallamano Grosseto / ITAPaksoft Camelot / NEDV.

Although the Rock Band developer may be suing its former bosses for shady profit withholding, that lawsuit hasn’t stopped Viacom from successfully selling Harmonix off, which they managed to do right before the holidays.Word first popped up that Viacom was looking to sell Harmonix — creators of Rock Band and Guitar Hero, whose games have sold tens of millions of copies to date — back in November for unstated reasons.AdChoices广告Supposedly, the issue is profitability, which is a bit hard to believe. The revenues for the last three Rock Band games are commonly cited as being over $1 billion. I suppose it depends on how much Viacom was pumping into the company after the $175 million sale back in 2006, but e already know that Viacom is being accused of withholding bonuses. Perhaps things were bleaker than they first appeared.Either way, the new owner of Harmonix is a private investment firm in New York. Viacom says they’re now getting out of the rhythm music game market, but Harmonix has no intention of stopping: they’re currently working on a new music game for the Nintendo 3DS.Read more at LA Times

Three Alaska Native tribal organizations have won nearly $3 million in federal housing grants to improve living conditions in more than 100 homes.Listen nowThe U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced the Tribal Healthy Homes Production grants Monday in Juneau. The recipients hope to use the money for home repairs, education and to deal with mold and mildew issues.The Organized Village of Kake and the Tlingit-Haida Regional Housing Authority each received $1 million. The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium won almost $870,000.Housing Authority Executive Director Joyce Niven said the organizations will work together and with partners to improve living conditions in their regions.“We all have different skill sets that we’ll need to use to execute the grant … because it’s ‘Healthy Homes,’ it’s not just going in and repairing homes,” Niven said. “It’s educating people about managing their homes in a healthy manner.”One issue she said they frequently deal with in Southeast is mold and mildew. With the area’s wet climate, respiratory issues can result from poor ventilation in people’s homes.Niven said the Healthy Homes grant funding will help the organizations address those problems more thoroughly.“When we’re in the homes there’s often so much to be done that we have to set priorities and figure out what’s the most critical thing to get fixed. These funds will help us not have to set so many priorities and maybe get the entire home fixed,’” Niven said.Niven said she and her staff will start work on an implementation plan due back to the federal government in 90 days.The Healthy Homes grants are the first of their kind. HUD awarded $12 million in total to 13 tribal organizations across the country.
Europe’s biggest industrial group Siemens expects a double-digit rise in earnings for its current fiscal year provided that markets pick up for some of its key businesses.The trains-to-turbines group, which is the first of its peers to give an outlook for the year ahead, forecast a moderate full-year rise in revenue and a book-to-bill ratio above 1 after beating expectations for fourth-quarter profit.”Siemens anticipates further softening in the macroeconomic environment and continuing complexity in the geopolitical environment in 2016,” it said in a statement on Thursday.”This outlook assumes that momentum in the market environment for Siemens’ high-margin short-cycle businesses will pick up in the second half of fiscal 2016.”Siemens said basic earnings per share should rise by at least 14 percent on a comparable basis to 5.90 to 6.20 euros. EPS for the year to end-September was boosted by the disposals of Siemens’ hearing aids and household appliance businesses.The company exceeded its industrial profit margin target of 10-11 percent with a result of 11.3 percent in its fourth quarter to the end of September, and renewed the goal for the current year on Thursday.
Detective Branch of police produces Shahidul Alam, who was picked up by plainclothes men earlier, before a Dhaka court Monday. Photo: Shuvra Kanti DasAward winning photographer Shahidul Alam has again been taken to the Detective Branch (DB) office after a medical test was conducted at the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).Physicians at the BSMMU found him in good health, so he has been taken back to the DB office, police said.Deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Masudur Rahman said Shahidul Alam was taken to BSMMU following an order of the High Court. The medical board formed for Shahidul’s treatment will submit a report on his health condition on Thursday.The HC on Tuesday asked the authorities to send detained photographer Shahidul Alam to BSMMU for treatment.It also asked the BSMMU authorities to submit a medical report on his health to the court by 10:30am Thursday. A HC bench of justice Syed Muhammad Dastagir Husain and Md Iqbal Kabir passed the order after hearing a writ petition.Earlier, Shahidul’s friend Rahnuma Ahmed filed a writ petition with the HC challenging a lower court order that put him on a seven-day remand in a case filed under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act. Detective Branch (DB) of police picked up photographer Shahidul from his Dhanmondi flat on Sunday night after he had given an intervew to Al Jazeera where he spoke on the recent students’ demonstrations demanding safe roads.Shahidul was sued under the controversial section 57 of the ICT Act for his alleged involvement in spreading propaganda against the government. On Monday, Dhaka additional chief metropolitan magistrate Asaduzzaman Nur placed Shahidul Alam on a seven-day remand for interrogation in a case filed under the controversial Section 57 of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) Act.
Neil ConwayMore women are ending up in Texas prisons and jails, and a criminal justice reform advocacy group wants policymakers to address the problems that led them there.The Texas Criminal Justice Coalition released a report Thursday to highlight common issues the more than 12,000 imprisoned women in the state face and propose gender-specific support, treatment and diversion options. The organization said in the report that although the female population is increasing, most programs that aim to help prisoners are geared toward men.Women only accounted for less than 9 percent of those in the Texas prison system in 2016, but the organization said that their population is increasing while the state lessens the overall number of prisoners. Between 2009 and 2016, the men’s prison system population decreased by more than 8,500 inmates, while the number of women went up more than 500.“The vast majority of women in Texas prisons have extensive trauma histories, and most of them are mothers,” Lindsey Linder, a policy attorney for the group and the report’s author, said in a news release. “It is critical that we help these women address the root causes of their criminality through community supports and services, rather than through incarceration.”In a survey of more than 400 incarcerated women, the organization found that nearly 60 percent said they suffered from sexual abuse or assault as a child and more than half said their household income before taxes was less than $10,000. More than 80 percent were mothers.To combat the rising female prison population, the group recommended that lawmakers and local officials emphasize pretrial diversion programs for non-violent crimes, especially for pregnant women or those with primary custody of a child, and invest in support programs at the community level to help women deal with trauma before being introduced into the criminal justice system. The report also recommended specialized treatment for women on probation or with substance abuse issues, and, more generally, reforming the bail system to help women in poverty.Andrea Button, a sociology professor at Midwestern State University who is analyzing the inmate survey responses with the Texas organization, said poverty is a massive factor for the incarcerated women because it also correlates with other traumas, like abuse.“When women leave incarceration … they get plunged back into that same system of poverty,” she said, adding that there need to be re-entry programs targeting women specifically to connect them to effective jobs and childcare. “If you go at it with this blanket approach, you’re going to trigger them right back to prison.”State Rep. James White, a Republican from Hillister and chairman of the House Corrections Committee, said the uptick in the female prison population is something his committee is going to dive into before the next legislative session. House Speaker Joe Straus issued an interim charge to the committee last year to look into treatment options and programs for incarcerated women.Though White’s committee often deals with women who are already entrenched in the system, he said he likes the idea of the state giving funding to local jurisdictions to use for pretrial diversion programs, especially for non-violent drug offenses.“I like the idea of giving our local jurisdictions the funding,” White said. “I’m hearing from probation officers and judges that pretrial diversion across the state is usually a very, very effective tool.” Share
Education leaders in the District of Columbia and Prince George’s County, Md. are reacting negatively to a bill proposed by an Iowa U.S. representative that makes substantial changes in the administration of public education.On Jan. 23, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) introduced HB 610, “The Choices in Education Act.” This legislation would repeal “The Elementary and Secondary School Act of 1965” that supports public schools with federal dollars. It also weakens nutritional standards in the nation’s public school cafeterias and authorizes a federal voucher program.“As the spouse of a former Iowa teacher, I understand that it’s the right thing for our children to take education decisions out of the hands of the federal government and back into the rightful hands of parents who know best to meet the educational needs of our own children,” King said.Markus Batechelor represents Ward 8 on the D.C. State Board of Education. (AFRO File Photo)Regarding the voucher program, King said “the freedom of choice will result in parents being able to send their children to safer, better schools by taking federal dollars from failing programs like No Child Left Behind and Common Core” and giving parents the choice to use those dollars to send their children to public, private, or home-schooled institutions.On the nutrition standards, King wants to get the United States Department of Agriculture out of feeding school children. He wants the states to make those types of decisions so that “schools must be serving our students as much nutritious food as they need, so that our students can grow, learn, and excel, in school and out of school-in the classroom and on the playing field.”Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) wants to expand the state’s school voucher program by $7 million, while Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker III, is opposed to the voucher concept. Baker believes taxpayer funds should be used to strengthen Prince George’s County public schools.Others in the Washington metropolitan area are also critical of King’s bill. “I don’t support this legislation at all,” Markus Batchelor, a Ward 8 D.C. State Board of Education member, told the AFRO. “The promise of America is a good quality education, no matter where you live.”The District was the first jurisdiction in the country to have a federally-supported school voucher program in 2003, despite some reservations by D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D). The program, known as the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, was authorized in 2003 and expired in 2009.The program was resurrected in 2011 despite Norton’s chief argument that the D.C. Council, not the Congress, should decide on school vouchers.Batchelor isn’t a fan of vouchers. “Voucher programs don’t necessarily help students achieve academically,” he said. “What is needed and what I support is a good quality school in walking distance or close proximity in every neighborhood in the city.”“Those in support of HB 610 posture that it will ‘systematically’ fix what is wrong with public schools,” Barbara Dezmon, education committee chairman of the Maryland Conference of NAACP Chapters, told the AFRO. “The MSC would suggest that most of the bill’s supporters should try to fix those perceived wrongs rather than adopt measures that encourage ‘flight’ from public schools. With already diminishing resources and cuts in federal funding to education for the public greater good, we just can’t afford investment in voucher programs.”“Additionally, it raises further questions about equity in schools for Black and other minority and poor students,” she said.Dezmon agrees with Batchelor that the value of vouchers is questionable. “Vouchers also have a doubtful history as related to poor students and students with disabilities,” she said. “Often the private schools cannot accommodate these students, so they don’t have the same opportunity. The MSC observes inequities even in public education; however, moves such as those suggested in this bill will only exacerbate problems in this area.”Regarding the watering-down of nutritional standards, Batchelor said that HB 610 “would be a death knell for our kids.”“I represent a ward where children are living in food deserts and obesity is a problem,” he said.King’s bill is in line with the beliefs of President Trump and U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. U.S. Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus and the ranking member of the Committee on Education and the Workforce, the panel that will look at King’s bill if it is scheduled, hasn’t taken a public stand on the legislation but has made it clear through statements that he supports public education.
An exhibition here titled Resurgence: Revival of Indian Embroideries displays a variety of Indian embroideries enhanced with newly-developed techniques.The exhibit is the result of 20 years of effort by Asif Shaikh, an Ahmedabad-based expert in Indian textiles.‘I have sourced these pieces from different parts of India. I work closely with artisans and learn their techniques. Then, I improve on it to enhance the quality of embroidery. The idea is to promote Indian embroideries to the world,’ Shaikh said. ‘I have been working on it for over 20 years and the idea is to use these traditional textile techniques in a contemporary style,’ he added. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Culture Minister Chandresh Kumari Katoch inaugurated the exhibition Monday. She appreciated Shaikh’s efforts to curate the best of embroideries from most states, but felt he had completely neglected the Northeast region.‘It is a great effort, but he has not included Northeastern traditional embroideries. They have many interesting tribal things and clothes that are very fashionable. Perhaps he should now come up with a tribal exhibition to show what these states have to offer,’ she said.On display are intricate weaves of zardozi, Parsi style embroidery, danka embroidery with zardozi work, bead work, ajrak with embroidery, soof embroidery, rabari embroidery, gotta-patt Mughal designs and many more.WHERE: Indira Gandhi National Centre for the ArtsWHEN: On till 15 September

The signature overwater bungalow, first invented in the Islands of Tahiti and now the quintessential icon of paradise, celebrates its 50th birthday this year. For travellers looking for the perfect South Pacific escape, staying in an overwater bungalow is a ‘can’t miss experience’. From direct access from a private deck into the world-renown Tahitian lagoons, to lounging on the balcony of a thatched-roof hideaway with all the amenities and service of a first class hotel, the overwater bungalow is the symbol of an ultimate private getaway.To celebrate the 50th anniversary, Sofitel Hotels & Resorts in French Polynesia is offering a complimentary lunch for two people per stay for every booking made in an Overwater Bungalow. This exclusive offer is valid now until 31 December 2017.The overwater bungalow was first conceived and built in the lagoon of Raiatea in 1967 by three American hotel owners known as ‘The Bali Hai Boys’. They took traditional local Polynesian grass huts and set them on concrete stilts over the water’s edge.

December 21 at home. Bush’s social media score was barely in the positive territory. the service has been missing out on some big albums this year. Ramalan Yero has issued a warning to the All Progressives Congress,C. and its lobbyists and professional politickers In a victory speech delivered in the wee hours of Wednesday morning Trump credited his victory to voters "who want and expect our government to serve the people and serve the people it will" Now Trump has to prove it Trumps relationship with big money From Trumps first day on the trail when he rode the Trump Tower escalator down to announce his bid the first-time candidate told voters he would be different He was running against the establishment Republican as much as Democratic Politicians are "controlled fully theyre controlled fully by the lobbyists by the donors and by the special interests fully" he said And that he promised over and over through months of Republican primaries wouldnt be him "I really like the Koch Brothers (members of my PB Club) but I don’t want their money or anything else from them Cannot influence Trump" he tweeted Meanwhile his Republican primary opponents were on the money trail setting up officially sanctioned super PACs and courting big donors The money didnt help the super PACs werent enough and Trump endlessly mocked his opponents for toadying to big donors "I wish good luck to all of the Republican candidates that traveled to California to beg for money etc from the Koch Brothers Puppets" he tweeted in August 2015 Trump insisted he would self-fund and could spend as much as it took "By the time it’s finished I’ll have more than $100 million invested" he insisted during the second general election debate a figure he repeated throughout the race He put in about $46 million of his own money during the primary much of it in loans he eventually forgave Voters loved it They rewarded him with the Republican nomination But after securing the nomination Trumps tone changed In Clinton he faced a candidate with a fundraising operation unparalleled in politics Her campaign alone raised $510 million more than twice Trumps $255 million and together with outside groups supporting her bid ran 75 percent of the more than 500000 broadcast and national TV ads aired in the presidential race Trump essentially embraced big-money vehicles such as super PACs although combined groups supporting him raised a relatively scant $60 million through Oct 19 He courted big GOP donors such as casino magnate Sheldon Adelson His own contributions slowed and his fundraising events sped up And donors gained influence New York investor Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah who oversaw one of the earliest super PACs to swing support his way convinced Trump to reshape his campaign leadership appointing operatives with close ties to them In the end Trump put in a relatively paltry $66 million of his own about $1 of every $4 raised by his campaign And he never aggressively courted donors in the manner Clinton and her backers did According to campaign finance filings Trump raised at least $67 million from small-dollar donors who each gave no more than $200 Many of these contributors had purchased Trumps iconic "Make America Great Again" hats from his campaign or other merchandise such as the set of three "Hillary for prison" buttons sold by his campaign for $6 And Clintons superior campaign fundraising machine buttressed by the nations biggest-money super PAC in operation wasnt enough to halt Trumps unlikely march to the White House Clinton had huge ad advantage Trump spent the general election wildly outspent and facing a seemingly endless stream of ads from Clinton and her allies In Florida the No 1 target in the ad war of Team Clinton Clinton and her allies accounted for more than 75 percent of the 121000-plus TV ads aired during the general election according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of advertising data provided by ad tracking firm Kantar Media/CMAG In most of the high-profile swing states the story was the same In Ohio Team Clinton was responsible for about 75 percent of the 79000 TV ads aired in the race since mid-June after the primaries had ended In North Carolina Team Clinton was likewise responsible for about three-quarters of the 63000 presidential race TV ads since mid-June And in Pennsylvania Team Clinton was responsible for nearly three-fourths of the 58000 or so presidential TV ads that aired there since mid-June The only exception: Wisconsin In the Badger State Trump and his allies were responsible for about 60 percent of the roughly 10000 TV ads aired in the state between June 12 and Nov 6 according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of data provided by ad tracking firm Kantar Media/CMAG with the ad blitz beginning in mid-September Clinton who never visited Wisconsin during the general election and her allies didnt air general election TV ad in the state until Oct 29 The last time Wisconsin supported a GOP presidential nominee Ronald Reagan was on the ballot Spearheading the Republican push: Diane Hendricks the richest woman in Wisconsin who gave nearly $55 million to a super PAC that spent millions on ads in her home state attacking Clinton and Russ Feingold the Democratic candidate for US Senate Both lost in Wisconsin on Election Day A few big donors began putting real money into ads supporting him in the fall through a super PAC Future 45 and a related nonprofit group that does not reveal its donors Big donors included Adelson and Joe Ricketts the billionaire founder of TD Ameritrade The two groups together aired more than 9000 ads many in Florida In addition Trump far outstripped Clinton in free media with cable channels carrying his rallies live and his every tweet making news in a race that turned both ugly and personal "Lock her up" supporters chanted at rallies referring to Clinton His lean campaign relied heavily on the Republican National Committees turnout operation a strategy that paid off Clintons big money problem Big money can backfire as Democrats who have often fought for dramatic campaign finance reforms are painfully learning The benefits are as significant as they are obvious: a candidate may hire superior staff purchase more ads and run longer and harder than an opponent But the drawbacks proved to be equally profound for Clinton Although she routinely decried the US Supreme Courts Citizens United v Federal Election Commission decision she became one of its chief beneficiaries by building a massive money-making machine that fully exploited the high courts ruling While she promised to "fight hard to end the stranglehold that the wealthy and special interests have on so much of our government" her campaign and supportive super PACs solicited huge sums from elite political patrons Read More: Donald Trump Wins the 2016 Election And despite her railing against "secret unaccountable money in politics" the super PACs supporting Clinton collected eight-figures worth of money from sources trading in cash thats tough if not outrightly impossible to trace Money also couldnt adequately mask what many voters perceived fair or not as Clintons damning flaws Theres her penchant for secret-keeping be it delivering private speeches to Wall Street executives or shielding her State Department emails from public scrutiny And her Clinton Foundation wooing of the ultra-rich and unsavory foreign governments undercut her pledges that shes represent the interests of who she once half-heartedly (and ham-handedly) described as "everyday Americans" Bernie Sanders surprisingly strong challenge to Clinton in the Democrats presidential primary was largely fueled by liberals reaction against what many considered Clintons insincerity on matters of political money and influence After Clinton vanquished Sanders a US senator from Vermont she never quite captured his supporters energy and enthusiasm for her own purposes Trump meanwhile repeatedly hammered Clinton as "crooked" liar most interested in her own power and prestige No matter that Trump belittled his opponents exaggerated his charitable giving refused to release his tax returns and was caught on tape describing how hed sexually assault women The body politic sided with Trump over Clinton Draining the swamp Trump now turn to setting up an administration with jobs presidents often turn to lobbyists to fill and setting an agenda for his presidency Voters and campaign finance reform advocates will be looking to see how Trump acts to reduce the influence of money in politics that he decried throughout the campaign "To the extent that Mr Trump while campaigning has criticized the current campaign finance system his only solution offered seems to be more candidates like him who are billionaires and can self finance and thats not a solution" said Paul S Ryan vice president for policy and litigation at nonpartisan group Common Cause and a longtime advocate for campaign finance reform In October Trump released a slate of proposals that he said were meant to reform Washington He called for longer bans on lobbying by executive branch officials members of Congress and congressional staff He also said he would move to tighten the legal definition of lobbyists forcing more advocates to disclose their activities under laws covering lobbyists Read More: All the Emotions of Election Night in One Photo He also said he would ask Congress to prohibit lobbyists for foreign governments from fundraising for political candidates and seek a constitutional amendment requiring congressional term limits Trump has some measure of public faith: Respondents to a Center for Public Integrity/Ipsos poll earlier this year gave Trump higher marks than Clinton on the prospect of them reforming the nations campaign money system Still most of Trumps proposals are a tall order that would require support from Congress Constitutional amendments are exceedingly rare And much of the strength of his proposals lie in the details he has yet to flesh out In addition Ryan points out Trumps campaign lawyer Jones Day partner Don McGahn a former head of the Federal Election Commission has traditionally battled any restrictions on money in politics "Don McGahn says publicly that he thinks most campaign finance laws are unconstitutional" Ryan said What Trump thinks about this will be revealed as prepared to move into the White House This story is from

mocked her at a rally and Jimmy Kimmel was appalled "You know Id say Im starting to think a bipolar sociopath with no moral compass might not have been our best choice for president" said Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night He also turned his attention to the crowd’s behavior: "The people in the crowd when he did this they loved it He mocked this womans story about a sexual assault they ate it up they laughed they cheered I really dont understand it" The comments were perhaps even more surprising in the context which Kimmel noted was a "rally to support Mississippis first-ever female senator" While the White House stated that Trump wasnt mocking Fords assault but rather "stating the facts" key swing Senate Republicans and some of Trumps usual supporters distanced themselves

voting days by more than half from 15 days to only the week before Election DayJaeger said his office also opposes House Bill 1238 which would prohibit absentee ballots from being sent earlier than 20 days before the election Both bills could make for longer lines at the polls which can discourage voting Montplaisir said"We’re trying to make sure that the voter has adequate access to the ballot and
