President Donald Trump had a week defined by tumult-but what else is new? Amid the usual flurry of controversy, his popularity has taken a dip, according to the latest approval rating polls Saturday. Notably, Trump's approval rating neared his all-time low in the Gallup poll. The latest figure in Gallup's tracking survey, released Thursday, pegged Trump's approval at just 35 percent, down from 38 percent at this point last week. He's just one percentage point higher than his lowest rating ever of 34 percent. To make matters worse for the commander-in-chief, Trump's disapproval was nearing his all-time high, as well. It stood at 60 percent, just one percentage point off from his all-time high
If you hate the middle seat on a plane, you probably won’t like the new seat configuration on United Airlines Boeing 777s. The Chicago-based company announced that it is the latest carrier to reconfigure the seating on the Boeing 777-200 to add 21 additional seats. The plane, to be used starting this winter primarily for long-haul flights, will have 50 lie-flat business class seats - known as Polaris seats - and 242 economy seats. United said it plans to configure about 90 Boeing 777-200 planes over the next few years. The good news is that the legroom for the economy seats will remain about the same as before. The distance between the back of one seat and the back of the next - known as the
A California mother is speaking out to remind autumn revelers across the country of a common danger that may be lurking in pumpkin patches.
A young California couple who vanished during a hiking trip in the desert almost three months ago died in a murder-suicide near a trail, investigators said Friday.
When shopping for a new car, more than half of drivers cite reliability as the top thing they look for in a vehicle. After all, no matter how slick your new car looks, if it breaks down when you need it, you’ve basically got a 4,000-pound paperweight. With that in mind, Consumer Reports has released its annual list of the most reliable cars you can buy today, as well as the least . These rankings are based on the Annual Reliability Survey . The survey looks at 17 key trouble areas, ranging from brakes that squeak to transmission repairs that fall outside of warranty. They survey 400,000 car owners, who have a combined 640,000 vehicles between them. Their survey found that it was often entirely new models of vehicles or completely redesigned vehicles that came with the most problems. Consumer Reports also identified infotainment systems as a pain point for many drivers as well. To calculate the score, Consumer Reports weighted the severity of the problems with the vehicle to develop a Predicted Reliability Score. They combined it with test track data, owner satisfaction survey results and safety data to create an Overall Score. These vehicles are the ten highest scoring, and the ten lowest. If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, here are the cars to consider - and to potentially avoid. All prices in U.S. dollars. Download the Yahoo Finance app, available for Apple and Android .
Welcome to Midnight Mania! Undefeated as a professional boxer, Heather Hardy was a highly touted prospect coming into tonight’s Bellator 185. She had finished her last opponent via TKO, and seemed to have star potential. However, tonight, she suffered her first defeat in either MMA or boxing at the hands of debut fighter Kristina Williams, who broke Hardy’s nose with a brutal head kick. The fight was a kicking clinic for Williams. Heather Hardy earns points for being incredibly tough and staying on her feet despite taking shinbone to the noggin. It’s clear Hardy has some things to work on if she’s going to have a successful MMA career, though. The broken nose reminded many of Rory Macdonald’s
A Texas high school has been criticized after changing the homecoming queen's purple hair to brown in a photo posted on the school's website.
Australian models Kate Wasley and Georgia Gibbs went viral a few months ago when Gibbs posted a photo that emphasized the friends' different body shapes.
Graphic photos released Friday allow the public to see for the first time how Chicago teen Kenneka Jenkins was found dead in a freezer, but her family says the images raise more questions than answers.
Audio of a Gold Star widow’s conversation with President Donald Trump, who called to offer his condolences for the loss of her husband, was released on Friday. After her husband, a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army, was killed while serving in Afghanistan, President Trump called her to offer his deepest sympathies, The Washington Post reports: “Gold star widow Natasha De Alencar released the audio of a phone conversation she had with President Donald Trump in April about the death of her husband who was killed in Afghanistan. “‘I am so sorry to hear about the whole situation. What a horrible thing, except that he’s an unbelievable hero,’ Trump told her in the call about her husband Army Staff Sgt.
Many hoped Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly would help abate the Trump administration's problem with falsehoods (of which the president is the key offender), but a video has proved Kelly's attack on Rep. Frederica Wilson false.
An air hostess from a British airline has lifted the lid on the mile-high bonks, romps with pilots and celebrity affairs that go on among the glamorous crew. The stewardess, who wishes to remain anonymous, claims life on board is every bit as outrageous as the famous names she’s met. She first joined the airline “to travel the world, meet new people and get paid for living the lifestyle.” Now, 15 years later, she claims she’s seen and heard it all - and revealed that two girls last year were making money by having sex with first class and business class passengers. She said: “A stewardess was caught getting [business] on board as a prostitute. She was caught business-carding it - trying to drum
Actress Amber Tamblyn reached out to the comedian who accused Tamblyn’s husband David Cross of racist behavior ― and said she believes her.
DEAR MISS MANNERS: A rather odious problem: My sister-in-law posted something on social media that was quite disturbing. She made a disparaging remark about my brother, which referenced their intimate (or lack thereof) relations and made a shocking and vulgar comment about my brother in that regard. Several family members saw the posting, one of whom asked her to remove it, which she did. My brother does not know about this. He doesn’t use social media, and no one wants to tell him. I think he should know, but I can’t bring myself to tell him, and I’m not sure if I should. Can you advise me? Should one of us tell him about this unfortunate event? If we tell him, I doubt he will be able to forgive
Hollywood agent Tyler Grasham fired after sex abuse allegations surface
Now that's a makeover! Katie Holmes said goodbye to her long hair when she debuted a brand new pixie cut on Thursday, Oct. 19, and she looks so adorable! We think Katie lost about 12 inches of her chestnut locks, and the result is giving us major Twiggy vibes. Watch the video below to see Katie's daring new look! Katie actually seemed a little hesitant to show off the new look. She headed into the LA airport sporting sunglasses and a big black hat, which she only removed while going through security. It's unclear why Katie made the bold hair choice, although it could have something to do with her upcoming film Doorman, which is in pre-production right now and is set to come out in 2018. According
A man shared on Twitter that he created a makeup vanity for his beauty-loving girlfriend, complete with large lighted mirror and drawers.
People with HIV should be quarantined, and the U.S. would be safer if they “died more readily,” according to former Health Secretary Tom Price’s wife and Republican state Representative Betty Price. The Georgia state lawmaker and former anesthesiologist represents people who live in the northern Atlanta area, and was asked in a hearing what the U.S. is “legally able to do” to limit the spread of HIV throughout the state. “It’s almost frightening, the number of people who are living that are carriers with the potential to spread,” Price said during a Georgia House of Representative committee meeting on access to health care in the state (around the one-hour mark of the video).
All of the other issues that have been in the headlines-male sexual predation, Donald Trump’s (un)fitness for the presidency, the respective futures of the Iran nuclear agreement and the Affordable Care Act, and on and on-are undeniably important. As I wrote in a recent column, one of the persistent and puzzling aspects of the politics of guns in this country is the insistence by “gun rights” advocates on invoking the Second Amendment as a magical talisman, seeking to shut down all talk of gun control by asserting that such laws would violate the Constitution. As Michael Dorf reminds us in his most recent column, the controlling Supreme Court opinion says that the Second Amendment only applies to firearms in “common use,” which means that many different types of guns could be banned outright (as machine guns are now).
