The key number to watch for Federal Reserve implications: wage growth.
In the past, Donald Trump has said that the American wages are too high and repeatedly expressed the concern that raising the minimum wage would undermine American competitiveness in the global economy. As the New York Times noted, the billionaire showman told Wolf Blitzer on CNN Wednesday that he’s “open to doing something with” the minimum wage. Trump also described himself as “very different from most Republicans” on the issue.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city officials are urging New Yorkers not to eat at Chick fil-A. The popular chicken restaurant is planning to open up a new location in Queens, its fourth to open in New York City. But the liberal mayor argued that the owners of Chick fil-A support groups that promote "hate" against gays. "Chick-fil-A is anti-LGBT," he said in a statement, according to the website DNAInfo. "This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love. It is outrageous that Chick-fil-A is quietly spreading its message of hate by funding these types of organizations." He went on to call
Authorities described a grisly crime scene: 18-year-old Holli Jeffcoat's bloody body on the floor, her throat slit and uterus removed. In March, authorities arrested Holli's stepfather, James Holland, 39, for allegedly continuously sexually abusing Holli and her 15-year-old sister over a period of years – starting when Holli was 12 and her sister was 9.

A controversial Oxford University Rhodes scholar is in hot water after cheerfully recounting how he and his chums made a waitress cry “typical white tears,” the website Heat Street reports. South African student Ntokozo Qwabe is a leader of the Rhodes Must Fall movement, which calls for the removal of any statues of British imperialist Cecil Rhodes — best known for his Rhodes Scholarship program. Unpopular with many in his own ranks because of his hypocritical use of a Rhodes Scholarship to attend Oxford, Qwabe has said Rhodes is “as bad as Hitler.” Writing recently on Facebook, Qwabe recalled how he and some pals were at a cafe in Cape Town when their bill arrived. But instead of filling in
One of the strangest and most inexplicable hot takes in all of sports media has been Colin Cowherd’s insistence that Wizards star John Wall isn’t a good guy. The history of this take is long and weird, and doesn’t make a lot of sense, especially since John Wall has proven like 100 times over that he’s a really, really wonderful guy. His friendship with a young Wizards fan who passed away from cancer is one of the most moving sports stories of the last few years. On Thursday, Cowherd was finally convinced to apologize by Bill Simmons during a Simmons guest appearance on The Herd. You can see the apology is given reluctantly, but it’s a good thing — I guess? — that it finally happened. Go John
