President Donald Trump plans to meet Thursday with Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen to discuss the possibility of nominating her for a second term as central-bank chief, according to a person familiar with the matter.
She is one of several people under consideration for the Fed job, along with former Fed governor Kevin Warsh, current governor Jerome Powell, Stanford University economist John Taylor and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn.
The Weinstein Company secured a financial lifeline — and a potential new owner — on Monday from Colony Capital, as the embattled studio reels from the growing scandals surrounding its co-founder, Harvey Weinstein.
In a short statement, the Weinstein Company said that it had a preliminary agreement from Colony for an immediate cash infusion, though the amount was not disclosed. The two sides will begin negotiations over selling some or all of the studio’s assets to Colony, which is led by Thomas J. Barrack Jr., a financier who is one of President Trump’s closest advisers.
The government's response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico — and how Americans perceive it — perfectly illustrates how President Trump puts his administration on the defense by failing to tame his tweets.
Indeed, former FEMA director James Lee Witt told me he’d give the Trump administration an A-plus for how it’s responding to all the hurricane aftermath – including in Puerto Rico. “They’ve maxed out probably how many people they could put there,” said Witt, a Democrat who ran the agency under President Clinton.
President Trump and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer tangled on Twitter Monday morning over everything from Iran to taxes to the economy.
“POTUS complains about fake news – this tax plan’s fake math is as bad as any of the so-called fake news he has complained about,” Schumer tweeted. “This deliberate manipulation of #s & facts could lead to messing up the good economy inherited from @POTUS44 & hurting the middle class.”
Former hostage Joshua Boyle says he and his wife decided to have children in captivity because they always planned to have a big family and decided, "Hey, let's make the best of this and at least go home with a larger start on our dream family."
They include Kevin King, 60, a teacher at the American University of Afghanistan in Kabul who was abducted in August 2016, and Paul Overby, an author in his 70s who disappeared in eastern Afghanistan in 2014.
Colony Capital, a private equity fund run by President Donald Trump's close ally Tom Barrack, has agreed to provide "an immediate cash infusion" to the Weinstein Co., the firm co-founded by disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, both companies said.
The Weinstein Co. has a movie production business closely associated with Harvey Weinstein, but it produces "uneven returns," according to the Wall Street Journal.
One positive that comes out of hearing such horrific stories from Hollywood and beyond is that the more people talk, the less it's becoming acceptable.
The Weinstein case has shone the light on the appalling practices in Hollywood, but it is of course a very depressing reflection of what women from all walks of life, from all corners of the globe, have to experience on a daily basis. A few years ago a married former colleague of mine began sending me messages containing explicit details of his sexual desires.
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, is calling for action to combat the U.S. opioid epidemic in response to a joint investigation by "60 Minutes" and The Washington Post that said Congress helped disarm the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
"We had been achieving incredible success in an almost unstoppable wave, and then suddenly it stopped," Novak said in the "60 Minutes" report. He said his bosses started to bog down the system while demanding more evidence.
The far-right populist Freedom Party's strong showing in Sunday's election is a sign that it is fully established in Austria, says political scientist Heinz Gärtner of the University of Vienna.

The motion filed by California, 17 other states and the District of Columbia to block Trump’s action should still go ahead, for reasons we’ll get to in a moment.
In fact, Trump’s action would lead to an increase in enrollments in ACA plans in many states, including California, where about 90% of enrollees pay subsidized premiums. Covered California, the state’s Obamacare exchange, calculated in January that the reduction in net, or after-subsidy, premiums in gold, platinum and bronze plans resulting from the higher subsidies would lead to an enrollment increase of 20,000 people, or 1.4% in subsidized plans.
President Donald Trump said Monday that his move to end government subsidies to insurance companies under the Affordable Care Act ended the "gravy train" to those companies and predicted the action will ultimately help overhaul the law.
Under the act, the government made cost-sharing reduction payments (CSRs) to insurers to reduce premiums for low-income Americans who utilized health care exchanges.
The charter school network that L.A. school board member Ref Rodriguez co-founded and ran for years has filed a complaint with state regulators alleging that Rodriguez had a conflict of interest when he authorized about $285,000 in payments drawn on its accounts.
When news broke that Los Angeles school board president Ref Rodriguez was caught up in a criminal case over his campaign contributions, friends and foes alike were baffled.
THE DAY I WAIT in the hotel lobby of the Ritz-Carlton in Battery Park City to meet Nicki Minaj is the start of New York Fashion Week.
I am getting Nicki Minaj figured out with this album and I’m loving her.”. MINAJ’S PUBLIC IMAGE and personas are carefully curated. The tabloids have assiduously tracked her professional and personal lives and I restrain myself from asking about her ex Safaree Samuels, who appears on “Love & Hip Hop,” a reality television series about the music industry, and if she would ever give Drake a shot.
Colin Kaepernick’s newly-filed grievance accusing the NFL of colluding or conspiring against him is a legal “Hail Mary.”
Temperamental quarterbacks who are lacking those qualities sometimes find themselves watching NFL football games at home.
The Biloxi, Miss., school district has pulled Harper Lee's classic novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" from its curriculum because it "makes people uncomfortable," the Biloxi Sun Herald reports.
Holloway said the book will remain in school libraries, but will no longer be taught to eighth-grade students in the district. Lee's 1960 novel about a black man falsely accused of raping a white woman, which won the Pulitzer Prize, has been a staple in classrooms for decades.
