Ron Paul: Stocks may get chopped in half within a year, but it won’t be Trump’s fault

Today 09:01 GMT

Last month, libertarian and multiple campaigner for president Ron Paul made headlines with his gloomy prediction that the stock market, plagued by an overrated recovery for the U.S. economy, could plunge 25% by October.

Paul isn’t jumping on the increasingly crowded anti-Trump bandwagon, as least as the president pertains to what’s happening in the stock market. That kind of damage would bring the S&P SPX, -0.18%  down to 1,212 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.35% to 10,837.

‘20 seconds of burning’: Friends partly blinded after watching solar eclipse warn of dangers

Today 09:01 GMT

It was a clear day when Louis Tomososki's science teacher mentioned that a partial solar eclipse would be visible from their hometown of Portland, Ore., that afternoon.

He's particularly worried about people buying phony eclipse glasses that don't offer sufficient protection, or children who look up at the completely covered sun during totality — but don't put their eclipse glasses back on in time after the moon moves off it.

Why Bannon parted company with Trump – and how he'll weaponize Breitbart

Today 09:01 GMT

It’s been fascinating to watch some pundits say his departure will tilt the administration toward a more moderate path—charted by those Bannon dismissed as “globalists”—while others say not much will change since there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between Bannon and Donald Trump.

It’s true that Bannon was consulting with Trump on the weekend of the white supremacists’ rally that left a 32-year-old woman dead, and that he was pleased with the president’s handling of the controversy.

All the Light Trump Was Not Supposed to See. But He Peeked.

Today 09:00 GMT

Life-giving, eye-threatening, ostensibly apolitical — summoned the nation’s First Viewer to the Truman Balcony of the White House around 2:38 p.m.. President Trump lumbered toward the railing, behind the official seal, joined by a familiar assemblage of relatives, aides and at least one relative-aide, his daughter Ivanka Trump.

Staff members were gathered beneath him — primed, for at least a few moments, to absorb a spectacle of another sort, and nothing else.

FTSE chief executives' median pay 'down almost 20%'

Today 02:27 GMT

The median pay for chief executives of FTSE 100 companies has fallen by almost 20% over the past year, according to accountancy firm Deloitte.

PM: Iraqi forces start operation to retake Tal Afar from ISIS

Monday 12:40 GMT

U.S.-backed Iraqi security forces on Sunday began a multi-pronged military operation to retake the town of Tal Afar, west of Mosul, from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Iraq's prime minister announced.

In a statement, the U.S.-led coalition praised Iraqi security forces as a "capable, formidable, and increasingly professional force and they are well prepared to deliver another defeat" to ISIS in Tal Afar like in Mosul. "Mosul was a decisive victory for the Iraqi Security Forces, but it did not mark the end of (ISIS) in Iraq, or its worldwide threat," said U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, the commander of U.S. and Coalition forces in Iraq and Syria.

$417 Million Awarded in Suit Tying Johnson’s Baby Powder to Cancer

Today 08:05 GMT

In what may be the largest award so far in a lawsuit tying ovarian cancer to talcum powder, a Los Angeles jury on Monday ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $417 million in damages to a medical receptionist who developed ovarian cancer after using the company’s trademark Johnson’s Baby Powder on her perineum for decades.

Eva Echeverria, 63, of East Los Angeles is one of thousands of women who have sued the consumer products giant Johnson & Johnson claiming baby powder caused their disease, pointing to studies linking talc to cancer that date to 1971, when scientists in Wales discovered particles of talc embedded in ovarian and cervical tumors.
