    Melania Trump made another marvelous fashion statement at her husband President Donald Trump‘s Saturday rally in Melbourne, FLA. And she also gently referred to her haters as she introduced him at the packed event. The former model, 46, thrilled the crowd of reportedly more than 7,000 people as she stepped off Air Force One in a bright coral red, form-fitting dress that showed off her curvy figure and hit just below her knees. Melania wore small stud earrings with the cap-sleeved dress. As Radar has previously reported, Melania has become a fashion icon since becoming First Lady, evoking comparisons to...

    I applaud President Trump for nominating Alex Acosta to be Secretary of Labor. I've known Alex for over twenty years; he and I went to law school together, and he's a smart, principled conservative with a passion for justice. His record of service, inclusion, and accomplishment spans decades. Alex has served as a law clerk to Justice Samuel Alito, as a Board Member on the National Labor Relations Board, as the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, and most recently as a pioneering law-school dean. His nomination to the Labor...

If Hitler rose from the dead and ran from office, no one would pay attention because they heard it all before. Here's the playbook in action against Barry Goldwater who, like Bernie Sanders, was ethnically Jewish, but did not identify as such.

    he missing lithium problem is centred around the earliest stages of the Universe: from about 10 seconds to 20 minutes after the Big Bang. The Universe was super hot and it was expanding rapidly. This was the beginning of what’s called the Photon Epoch. At that time, atomic nuclei formed through nucleosynthesis. But the extreme heat that dominated the Universe prevented the nuclei from combining with electrons to form atoms. The Universe was a plasma of nuclei, electrons, and photons. Only the lightest nuclei were formed during this time, including most of the helium in the Universe, and small amounts...

    While winter in Yosemite National Park offers a spectacular opportunity to witness the national park's unparalleled beauty, there's one phenomenon in particular worth planning a trip around. During the last two weeks of February, the angle of the setting sun transforms the 2,130-foot Horsetail Falls into what many have nicknamed "The Yosemite Firefall." The effect is so convincing that it almost appears as if lava is pouring out of the granite cliffside. For photographers, this spectacle is not to be missed, with many snatching up the best spots to catch the phenomenon as early as 5 a.m. each morning.

The supermarket chain sells five different Trump Winery wines at its ten stores in Virginia, where the vineyard is located, and a local chapter of the National Organization for Women called on its notoriously loyal fanbase to boycott Wegmans unless it agreed to remove the products from stores statewide. The company responded that it bases inventory “solely on how well [a product] sells,” and welcomed shoppers to “demonstrate their convictions.” Seeing that as an encouraging sign, a group called Stop Trump Wine materialized with...

Although the upmarket department store said the decision was simply down to poor sales, Donald Trump accused the company of treating his daughter "so unfairly". His senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway, was then "counselled" by the White House after urging the president’s supporters to buy Ivanka's line of products, which includes clothing, jewellery, handbags and other goods. The encouragement may have paid off as her perfume...

It is another demonstration of the ability of life to adapt and cope in the most hostile of environments.

The next launch attempt — provided everything can be fixed quickly — would be Sunday morning.

Here’s what Shell Shock Technologies (SST) says about their two-piece, nickel-aluminum-stainless steel 9mm Luger NAS3 cases: •Stronger, cheaper and half the weight of brass. •Greater corrosion resistance. •More internal volume. •More consistent ignition. •+P velocities without +P pressures. •Cases won’t stretch, no trimming required. •Withstands 40 or more reloadings. •Picks up with a magnet. •Can be anodized different colors for instant ID.
