Many traditional conservatives were worried about the election of Donald Trump because of doubts about his economic policies. Would he follow a free enterprise course of reducing the burden of the state on the wealth-creating sector? Or would his erratic and egotistical character result in big government projects and corporatist meddling? It is a bit early to give a verdict and when it is reached, it could be rather complicated.

Amber Rose is not here for being small. She lives large, posting whatever she damn well pleases and captioning her shots from her weekend at Coachella #Hoechella. That’s just how she rolls, and we applaud her for it. Most recently, she was apparently feeling herself in a one-piece swimsuit, so she took to Instagram to document a little video of herself working it out, captioning it, “Trappin #cellulite#stretchmarks
NEW DELHI: Noted agricultural scientist M.S. Swaminathan, a pivotal figure in the Green Revolution that saw India achieve self-sufficiency in foodgrain, says GM technology, which has generated much heat in the country, will soon become "obsolete" with the advent of nano-technology and other solutions.

Intel claims that the memory, which it's branding Optane for commercial products, provides a compelling mix of properties putting it somewhere between DRAM and NAND flash. The first Optane products are almost here. For certain enterprise workloads, there's the Int...
When I go to events, there’s one question I am asked more frequently than any other…and it has nothing to do with jewelry. “But…how do you make money blogging?” The delivery varies. Some people ask aggressively because they’re uncomfortable in the face of something they don’t understand, or they can’t accept the changing times that my business represents. Others ask the question with awe or hope, and I wonder if they’re holding a blogging dr...

As someone whose face always makes them looks like they were just upside down (a.k.a. red and flushed as hell), I’m pretty close with my concealer and tinted moisturizer. So whenever I see photos of a celeb without makeup, I partially hope that they, too, have crazy redness, or a face full of zits, because misery loves company, right? But lest you think this is a story about Nina Dobrev going makeup-free and secretly having the worst skin in the world, it’s not. In fact, she has perfect s...
TODAY was supposed to be a moment for candidates in the French presidential election to go into overdrive ahead of first-round voting on April 23rd.

The gunman, who opened fire on a police van with an automatic weapon, was shot by the police as he fled. French news repor...
