    The US government is set to spend more on its debt than on the military within a decade

    The US federal government could soon spend more on interest for its debt then on the military, The New York Times reported. Interest payments are expected to make up 13% of the federal budget a decade from now, up from 6.6% in 2017. Tax cuts, spending increases and rising interest rates will make it more difficult to respond to future recessions or spend on other needs, the Times said.

    Will the Left Go Too Far?

    If you gauge the climate inside the Democratic Party merely by which candidates won its 2018 primaries, you might think reports of its leftward lurch are exaggerated. Despite the hoopla about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s and Ayanna Pressley’s upset victories in congressional races in New York and Massachusetts, not a single incumbent Democratic governor or senator lost a primary to a left-leaning challenger.

    'It hasn't benefited us a dime': Georgia steelworkers' verdict on Trump tariffs

    Union member and mill operator Joey Casey, 40, wasn’t getting paid for the day, so he enjoyed lunch at Thatcher’s BBQ on the main square in Trenton, Georgia. The day before, managers at the Caparo Bull Moose Tube Co plant told Casey, also the local union president, and those on his production line not to come in to work because of a malfunctioning part. Because the plant notified them with enough time, Casey and his colleagues won’t get paid until the part is fixed.

    Halloween night can be a frightening time. Only a fool would dare leave the house and brave the inky black outside, teeming as it is with ghouls, goblins and all manner of undesirable. The safest move would be to stay in, where all a person has to worry about is whether that sound – there it is again! – is the washing machine or a murderer closing in on his prey. In that spirit, the Guardian has assembled a guide to the spookiest films produced and/or released by Netflix for those with a tas...

    Finally, the drug that keeps you young

    udith Campisi has been a leading figure in the biology of aging since the early 1990s, when her research on the basic mechanisms of cancer revealed an unexpected finding—that cells enter a phase known as senescence that prevents them from becoming cancerous.

    One of the world’s largest organisms is shrinking

    The Pando aspen grove, located in central Utah, is the largest organism on the planet by weight. From the surface, it may look like a forest that spans more than 100 U.S. football fields, but each tree shares the exact same DNA and is connected to its clonal brethren through an elaborate underground root system. Although not quite as large in terms of area as the massive Armillaria gallica fungus in Michigan, Pando is much heavier, weighing in at more than 6 million kilograms.
