WASHINGTON-Before the 2016 presidential election, a longtime Republican opposition researcher mounted an independent campaign to obtain emails he believed were stolen from Hillary Clinton’s private server, likely by Russian hackers. In conversations with members of his circle and with others he tried to recruit to help him, the GOP operative, Peter W.
If there’s anything we should learn from it’s that’s we’re not alone and we should never give up. Sense8 was tragically canceled on June 1st, and we roared. We cried. We carried signs: you can see sense8 made a real difference and that makes me so emotional #pride2017 pic.twitter.com/Q0Lpdb8ysd – juliette.
The saga of Zillow’s totally bullshit legal threat has lasted all of three days. Following a terrible (and still wrong) attempt at damage control, Zillow has sent a note to all the reporters who have covered the story to say that it won’t be…

In 2010, I was going through a tough divorce (aren’t they all) while my business was starting to really take off.

One of the world’s biggest icebergs ever is poised to break off from an Antarctic ice shelf, as a huge crack in the ice continues to grow. “In the largest jump since January, the rift in the Larsen C Ice Shelf has grown an additional 11 miles between May 25 and May 31, 2017,” said Adrian Luckman of Project MIDAS, a British Antarctic research project that’s keeping watch on the ever-growing crack.
