WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump added some Sin City flavor to a Rose Garden event Thursday to highlight the impact of his tax cut on small businesses and working families: a pair of Las Vegas plumbers. As Trump delivered his remarks he was flanked by Richard Kerzetski, president of Universal Plumbing & Heating Co. in Las Vegas, and second-year apprentice John Achzet. It was Achzet’s first visit to the White House, and Kerzetski’s second, having taken a tour of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. years ago. “Did you do any work in any of my buildings out in Las Vegas?” Trump asked the plumbers as he introduced them on a picture perfect afternoon. “We have not yet, sir,” Kerzetski answered. Kerzetski said the tax cuts paid for purchases of “much-needed trucks, tools and office equipment.” Then there were “bonuses of $500 and $1,000 to all our employees.” And his firm hired several new employees, he said. For Achzet, the bonus … [Read more...] about Las Vegas plumbers join Trump at Rose Garden tax cut event
Last Updated Oct 10, 2017 2:11 PM EDT LAS VEGAS -- At least 58 people were killed and another 489 others were injured Sunday after a gunman opened fire at a country music festival in Las Vegas. The identities of victims of the deadliest mass shooting in recent American history began to emerge in the days following the tragic event. Authorities say the 64-year-old gunman, Stephen Paddock, fired from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino at a crowd attending a music festival below. When police entered his hotel room, they discovered Paddock had killed himself. A motive has not yet been determined. President Trump -- who called the shooting an "act of pure evil" -- and first lady Melania Trump visited University Medical Center's trauma center in Las Vegas on Wednesday and met with and consoled some of the survivors of the massacre. They also paid a visit to first responders, whose actions prevented even more casualties. Clark County released a full list of … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Here are the victims of the Las Vegas shooting
Moving to the country is a rite of passage for the English middle classes. It is a combination of sociological, fairytale and economic forces. The house will be bigger, the schools will be better, the children will be healthier and, provided the house is secreted up a sufficiently long, crunchy gravel drive, they will be able to walk the dog in their pyjamas. Sociologically, Mr and Mrs Wandsworth believe that they are country people. They haven’t actually lived in the country, unless it was another country, since they left the parental home. But it has assumed a soft-focus, fantasy allure of the honey-stoned village with the pub (gastro), the duck pond and The Shop. Their house will be The Old Rectory or The Manor Farmhouse and Mrs Wandsworth will keep rare-breed chickens with feathery trousers in the orchard. In reality, life outside the city can be brutish and short-lived. The fox will get the hens, the village shop will close because everyone uses Ocado and, come … [Read more...] about Why embracing the boredom is the key to living in the countryside
Who owns the information in your bank account? Transactions, balance history, every other detail? The answer might seem obvious: You do.“You don’t. You totally don’t,” says Ed Mierzwinski, Consumer Program Director and Senior Fellow for the U.S. Public Interest Research Group.Yes, it’s your money. But the data, from savings balances to your history of car payments, belong to whatever institution holds the account. And just who has the rights to see that data has become a pitched battle, with Washington as a front.There’s a consumer-rights angle, with public-interest advocates and politicians such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) weighing in for stronger consumer protections. But as is typical in Washington, the battle is really between two sectors of the financial industry.What they’re arguing over is a vast trove of information on Americans’ cash flows. The average American household has several financial accounts – not just … [Read more...] about Is your bank data yours?
