S. Koreans want new leader to create jobs minus corruption


Seoul had ordered it closed after Pyongyang defied global warnings and tested a long-range rocket. Moon Jae-in of the liberal Democratic Party is out in front of his rivals. "We want to be in the driver's seat". But he acknowledged the next administration would inherit "some very bad circumstances" that would make it hard to simply revert to the engagement policies of previous liberal presidents Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun, who served from 1998 to 2008.

Israel says Palestinian hunger strike leader ate in secret

Lauder's confidence on the matter certainly is raising eyebrows. The incident on Sunday was the latest in a 19-month-long period of sporadic street attacks by Palestinians against Israelis, and the bustling Damascus Gate entrance to Jerusalem's walled Old City where it occurred has seen many attacks.

Emmanuel Macron wins French Presidential election


Macron reached out to Le Pen's supporters in a plea for unity after a vicious election campaign that exposed deep economic and social divisions, as well as tensions provoked by identity and immigration. Le Pen credited herself with upsetting the French political landscape, creating a divide "between patriots and globalists". If confirmed, that would be double the score of her father, National Front co-founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, at the same stage in the 2002 presidential election. Read More »

Tokyo stocks head for 17-month high after Macron win


But although the margin of Mr Macron's electoral victory was bigger than initially predicted - he defeated Ms Marine Le Pen, the leader of the far-right, anti-immigrant National Front by a whopping 66.06 per cent majority on Sunday - a closer look at his success indicates that he will find it very hard to heal France's political divisions.

Here's how House GOP's health care bill hits the homefront

And that was in a chamber Republicans control 238-193. The issue is tax credits and how they do or don't apply to veterans under Obamacare, which Republicans want to repeal and replace. In the same interview with the Post , Trump said the GOP plan would have "much lower deductibles". Rob Portman (R-OH), whose state has been among the hardest hit, said Thursday in a statement that he opposed the House's bill because he feared its Medicaid rollback would affect treatment for drug abuse.

Microsoft Windows 10 S wants you to stick to its default browser

For many Microsoft enthusiasts, the laptop is the computer the company should have made long ago. Maybe the Windows 10 S ecosystem is best for students who use their computers for word processing and simple internet browsing. A major selling point for Windows 10 S is that it is restricted not only to dedicated hardware but also in terms of software. This could count as a major drawback for the baby Windows 10.

This is why insurance companies don't cover pre-existing conditions

Sen. Jack Reed slammed House Republicans for voting on the bill before the Congressional Budget Office could calculate federal costs. His choice? He got rid of the rock on the right: mostly Freedom Caucus members. Yet the Senate, unhappy with the bill the House came up with, plans to completely rewrite their own piece of legislation. Instead of the Obamacare subsidies that are tied to income and premiums, the GOP plan would provide Americans with refundable tax credits based mainly on age ... Read More »

Roundly defeated, Le Pen promises extreme-right renewal

Obama calls for courage on opposing health bill


No one deserves to pay more for health due to their gender or because of where they live.

Victorious Macron vows to fight French divisions


Macron will also need to tackle the fallout from a hacking attack on Friday, the final day of campaigning, when a trove of documents relating to his campaign, said to include both genuine and fake documents, was released online. This may be the one real meaning of this election for Americans and Europeans struggling desperately to cope with the "new populism". "I'm so happy, it feels so good!" But in a once-unimaginable scenario, Emmanuel Macron - at 39, the boy wonder of an aging ... Read More »

IN NUMBERS: How the French voted (and how they didn't)

While Macron's win had been widely anticipated, the election had cast a long shadow over the continent as the defeated candidate, the far-right Marine Le Pen, had wanted France to exit the 28-nation European Union , with potentially catastrophic consequences for the region and its euro currency.

Bill O'Reilly Breaks His Silence with Podcast

O'Reilly has said his fame made him a target and he made payments to protect his children. "He set a high bar".

Tom Price defends Medicaid cuts in new health care bill

The same could be said about the Republicans' plan to give people health care "choices". Topping the list is the overturn of the individual mandate that requires employers with 50 employers or more to provide health care or pay penalties. Then remember, as Paul Kane noted in The Post , that the GOP "viewed the measure as a necessary step to demonstrate some sense of momentum and some ability to govern in GOP-controlled Washington.

Trump's FCC chairman announces plans to abandon net neutrality enforcement

If the FCC's 2015 Open Internet order is reversed, the net neutrality rules prohibiting the blocking and throttling of content as well as paid prioritization would be nullified. The giants of the industry, however, had mostly maintained a silence, at best only offering general statements of support for net neutrality . If left in place, however, the Title II rules could harm the commercial internet, which Pai described as "one of the most incredible free market innovations in history". Read More »

"Je me battrai contre les divisions qui nous minent" — Macron élu président


L'euro s'affichait en hausse face aux principales devises lundi matin en Asie, après l'élection du candidat libéral et pro-européen Emmanuel Macron à la présidence française face à la candidate d'extrême droite Marine Le Pen. Son alliance avec Nicolas Dupont-Aignan n'a sans doute pas eu les effets escomptés dans les urnes. La montée de Jean-Luc Mélenchon dans les sondages sur les intentions au vote à quelques semaines du premier tour avait carrément relancé le suspense dans la ... Read More »

"Get the f*** off the court!" - Kevin Durant to Jazz mascot

They cover for each other so well. They know what it is like to win a championship. A barrier they struggled against last season and who's to say they won't, at least, wobble again. There wasn't much the Jazz could do to contend a flurry of turnaround fadeaways, drives to the basket and a pair of 3s. KEEP AN EYE ON: The Warriors' efficiency. Read More »

Raptors look to eliminate underdog Bucks after early series struggles

Game 1 tips off Monday night in Cleveland. It was the second straight win by the Spurs over the Grizzlies in the first round. That was a different kind of series where we had to get out of our comfort zone to beat them. The Bucks hacked furiously at the lead, largely by turning the Raps over, then capitalizing. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Memphis was a good test and now his team is better prepared to go on a long postseason run. Read More »
