The change would at least double the time frame allowed for enacting tax cuts that add to the deficit — marking a sea change for budget rules and making it easier for the GOP to enact lower rates without any support from Democrats. Republicans control only 52 of the Senate’s 100 seats, and they want to pass a tax bill under a process called reconciliation that allows for a simple-majority vote. Currently, reconciliation rules require that any changes that would add to the deficit outside a 10-year window must be set to expire.
But today, due to the scaling issue, bitcoin is in a crisis, and altcoins have overtaken bitcoin in market cap. While many will consider me a lucky early bitcoin adopter, clearly, I’m late to the altcoin party.

All Roads Lead to the Bubble-City Danger Zone (GE Christenson)
I expect the next ‘central-bank moment’ to arrive within the coming 12 months. I also expect that when it does arrive it will generally be called a ‘Minsky moment’ or some other name that deftly misdirects the finger of blame, and that central banks will generally be seen as part of the solution rather than what they are: the biggest part of the problem.”
Delivering perishables is much trickier than delivering T-shirts, books or pretty much anything else people can buy online. The biggest challenge is that groceries must stay cold for hours at a time. But there are myriad other complications, too. Bananas and apples give off fumes that can hurt loose leaf lettuce, so they can’t be stored too close. Tomatoes lose flavor when they cool to below 55 degrees. Milk always has to be packaged upright.
We’re Going To See A Bloodbath In Retail (Tiffany D.)
Sears — once the world’s largest retailer (and a relic of middle-class shopping from my childhood) — published its own death notice.

Promising to cut “red tape,” business-friendly politicians evidently judged that cost concerns outweighed the risks of allowing flammable materials to be used in facades. Builders in Britain were allowed to wrap residential apartment towers — perhaps several hundred of them — from top to bottom in highly flammable materials, a practice forbidden in the United States and many European countries.

According to the NRMA, there were more than 16,000 collisions with roos a year, with nearly 1,000 of those in the bush capital – the number one hotspot for roo collisions in the country.
As we can see, Oklahoma earthquake activity in 2016 is much greater than it was in 2009. Not only are there a lot more earthquakes, there have been several greater than a 5.0 magnitude. Again, many people assume that this huge increase in earthquake activity is due to the fracking of oil and gas wells.
