    The Small-Town Cost of Donald Trump’s Trade Wars

    In May, when President Trump announced new tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from Canada and Mexico, Chris Pratt, the plant manager at Mid-Continent Nail, the largest nail manufacturer in the U.S., was caught in a bind. Poplar Bluff, Missouri, Mid-Continent’s home, is a sprawling town of seventeen thousand on the eastern edge of the Ozarks, a two-and-a-half-hour drive south of St. Louis.

    We Should Replace Facebook With Personal Websites

    As a freshman in high school, in the year of our lord 2002, I made a website called “Jason’s Site.” While a website named after myself and devoted to updates about my own life was unspeakably vain for the time, it was also quite forward looking: The site has a news feed, an “about me” page, and an email mailing list for people to receive updates.

    Michael Wolff told all, Stormy Daniels revealed all, Bob Woodward dug deeper. And some books weren’t about Trump. A review of books on US politics published this year requires more than the usual blowing of intellectual dust from volumes already seeming outdated. Consider that Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House was a major story – broken by the Guardian – in January but is now largely forgotten, overtaken by events.

The legendary Snoop Dogg recently shared a photo of himself, MC Hammer, and the legendary Tupac Shakur, dressed t...

    CIRP says its data shows that early iPhone XS sales were strong, and were split evenly between the XS and XS Max.
