U.S. Former Arkansas governor and currently unabashed President Donald Trump supporter, Mike Huckabee, blamed excessive turnover in the Trump administration on exhausted aides who can't keep up with the president's physical prowess. Huckabee was asked by Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo what he thinks about the amount of people hired and fired from top White House positions that a Saturday New York Times report labeled "unprecedented." Huckabee pinned the recent high-profile departures of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Chief of Staff John Kelly not on performance, but instead on their inability to keep up with the septuagenarian president who claimed last year he doesn't believe in exercise. Bartiromo referenced a 35-person chart showing how many people had either been fired, resigned or otherwise forced out of the Trump administration in the past 14 months of his presidency.

A Pollock worker places a large piece of cardboard on a stack of folded packages before they are shipped out of the plant in Grand Prairie, Texas.

The maker of millions upon millions of corrugated boxes is celebrating its 100th anniversary with renewed vigor thanks to the "Amazon effect" -- where every sort of product is being bought online and shipped to people's doorsteps in those lowly, ubiquitous containers. Pollock's two Grand Prairie plants churn out nearly 2 million square feet of corrugated products every day -- about 450 million square feet a year. To put that in perspective, if the boxes were used as carpet, it would be enough flooring for more than 400 50-story skyscrapers. One can only hope that consumers are recycling most of them. Pollock doesn't make mailing bags. But it distributes a ton of them -- literally. "The Amazon effect has affected freight and shipment," said Lonnie … [Read more...] about 100-year-old box producer sees sales soar

IMPACT 01/12/2018 08:01 am ET Updated Jan 12, 2018 Santa Monica officials decided to look at more than just economic prosperity when gauging their citizens' success. Oliver Balch On assignment for HuffPost 120 Most days, Ari Hahyar sets out from his home in a middle-class neighborhood of Santa Monica for a leisurely stroll. Tracking his route and calculating his steps is a new Fitbit bracelet on his wrist. Hahyar, a 63-year-old recently retired from his job as a special education teacher, credits his daily walks with keeping him active and lifting his mood.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- It's not everyday a daughter commissions her dad into the United States Navy. But before we get into all that ... Dorotea DeFrancesco, a cardiothoracic physician assistant who's been working side by side with Dr. Tyrone Krause, a Mariners Harbor native, for more than 15 years, has a great story to tell. She was hired by Dr. Krause back in 2002 when she interviewed for the CT surgery position at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, N.J. At the time, Dr. Krause was the hospital's chief cardiothoracic surgeon. "During my interview, the first thing he asked me was where I was from, and I said, 'Staten Island,'" Dorotea said. "He then asked if I knew where Harbor Road was. I thought he was being funny and I figured he did his homework on me, because Harbor Road was two blocks from where I lived, on DeHart Avenue. So when I said, 'Yes of course,' he smiled. He told me he grew up in Mariners Harbor. His first job was a paperboy for the … [Read more...] about 63-year-old surgeon from Staten Island sworn into Navy by daughter
