(CNN)For a time, Pete Buttigieg was on a glide path as he ascended in the Democratic race for president, emerging unscathed from the fall debates and raking in donations as he built a juggernaut in early states. But this week, the 37-year-old South Bend, Indiana, mayor took his inevitable turn in the harsh glare of the 2020 spotlight. As a leading contender for the nomination, Buttigieg is now facing an avalanche of questions about his three-year stint at the prestigious management consulting firm McKinsey & Company, which has represented clients whose values do not exactly align with the agenda of a progressive Democratic candidate. Buttigieg has said a non-disclosure agreement prevents him from talking in detail about his work at the company. Buttigieg's progressive rivals -- namely Sen. Elizabeth Warren -- have been more direct in recent days in their criticism of the Indiana Democrat. And online, Buttigieg's critics from the left have seized on and attempted to amplify his … [Read more...] about Pete Buttigieg’s rise brings on the scrutiny
Projector alternative for conference room
A few years ago, Dr. David Weinstein started to lose his hair. “I really was pissed off,” he explained to me recently, in the tidy, tiny conference room of a co-working space in Manhattan. “I’m the only male in my family who managed to keep my hair! And I was in my mid-fifties, and all of a sudden it fell out. I thought, This is nuts. I don’t like this. And then I thought, I know a little bit about regenerative medicine.” Weinstein is a neuroscientist specializing in spinal-cord injuries and nerve regeneration. Working in his lab, in his spare time, he developed a drug compound he called RT1640. Then Weinstein began experimenting on himself. “I didn’t tell anybody I was doing this, including my wife. And, after a couple of weeks, I said, ‘Look at my head.’ And she said, ‘Your hair is growing. Why?’ ” Weinstein has big dark eyebrows and a kind face. Kind of an Elliott Gould vibe. I looked at his head. There … [Read more...] about Is the Age-Old Quest for a Baldness Cure Reaching Its End?

(CNN)Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on Friday released a timeline of his three years working for the elite consulting firm McKinsey. The release comes after some of Buttigieg's presidential opponents called for him to be more transparent about his time at the firm as some of McKinsey's work for the federal government, including for Immigration and Customs Enforcement on projects along the US-Mexico border, drew increased scrutiny this month. Buttigieg detailed seven projects in the release. "To the best of my recollection, these are all of my client engagements during my time with the firm, but a full release from McKinsey will allow the American public to see the full scope of my work," Buttigieg says in the statement. The release does not include a detailed list of his clients, something that he has been called to release but rejected -- for now -- because of a nondisclosure agreement he has with his former employer. But Buttigieg, as part of the Friday release, … [Read more...] about Buttigieg releases descriptions of McKinsey projects in face of criticism
In December 2012, Fox News aired a video that would briefly obsess the conservative blogosphere. At a Right to Work rally in Michigan, one of Fox’s young contributors was punched in the face by a union member. It was evidence, a parade of Fox pundits stressed, of “union thuggery.” On Fox and Friends, anchor Steve Doocy wondered what his colleague had done “that so provoked the left.” But an extended version of the video, aired ironically on Fox News’ Hannity, revealed that the original clip had been edited, removing footage of the puncher being pushed to the ground prior to throwing a punch in return. A Michigan county prosecutor refused to press charges, determining that the full video showed the union member acted in self-defense. **** Steven Crowder is always playing defense. Whether it’s against "union thugs” in Michigan, anonymous liberals on Twitter, or, most recently, his now-former employer Fox News, Crowder has had his guard up … [Read more...] about The Unmaking of a Conservative Pundit
