Memorial Day (previously, but now seldom, called Decoration Day) is a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. The holiday is now observed on the last Monday of May, having been observed on May 30 from 1868 to 1970.
Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day to honor and mourn those who died while serving in the U.S. Military. Many volunteers place an American flag on graves of military personnel in national cemeteries.
Memorial Day is also considered the unofficial start of summer in the United States,while Labor Day, the first Monday of September, marks the unofficial start of autumn.
Two other days celebrate those who have served or are serving in the U.S. military: Veterans Day, which honors those who have served in the United States Armed Forces,and Armed Forces Day, an unofficial U.S. holiday (earlier in May) for honoring those currently serving in the armed forces.
What do you think President Trump does on black Friday? He will be almost indifferent to the people who crowd in to buy gifts and things on offer.
Donald Trump’s wealth is almost unimaginable. In recent days, on the allegations that they claimed falsifications in tax returns, he stated that he is richer than people may believe, after criticizing the New York prosecutor’s attempt to acquire “all the financial transactions I have done” .
Donald Trump announced that he will make the tax return known before the election. Like any other person, he will make Christmas presents, but surely he will not rush the day of black friday to shop, or at least not to do them all.
The president of the united states will have so many people to give gifts to, but surely an entrepreneurial man like himself often lives in a solitude of the successful man.
In fact, many people have claimed that in the years when TRUMP climbed the success it was very cold: “How much do you have to be an asshole to be a successful person?”
The day of thanksgiving began, as every year, with the parade in Manhattan with balloons of various parsonages, including snoopy in an astronaut version.
High winds have been blowing through New York City, and the balloons generally aren’t supposed to be flown when sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph, according to city regulations.
Sustained wind speed in New York is expected to be around 20 mph, and gusts could reach around 40 mph, according to the National Weather Service.
But this year the bad weather seems to ruin Thanksgiving weekend.
In fact, the deep oceanic depression arriving on the western United States will move right from next Thursday on the central US areas, shifting to the north-eastern areas by Monday, ruining the long weekend practically on almost all the US territory.
Day off for Wall Street, which today will be closed for the national Thanksgiving holiday. Trading will resume tomorrow with a reduced timetable. The New York Stock Exchange, Friday, November 29, 2019, will end the session at 1 pm local time (6 pm in England) instead of at the usual time of 4 pm (9 pm in England).
Trump problems never end …
Is he against everyone or are they all against him?
Maybe both …
After the Russiagate investigation that put the president at risk for impeachment, there is the case of pressure on Ukrainian politicians that would have favored Trump in the elections. The president denied that he had only spoken to Zelens’kyj of Joe Biden.
Although Nancy Pelosi (Democratic Party) is beating for her to have an impeachment, it is unlikely that this will happen because the mid-term elections have only guaranteed victory to the parliament and not to the Senate, where an impeachment presentation would be rejected.
Trump is unpleasant to many. His economic power is very large, but other politicians (democrats) would have done some trick to get more votes.
Trump’s consent is falling … but where are all those voters who voted for him in 2016? Trump is one of the few presidents to have lowered unemployment to 4%: a historical record.
Men of the right are always acted on of their power…
The problem of disinformation through social media is enormous but little is done to combat it, also because it is a headache of extreme complexity. Managing billions of contents and distinguishing the true from the false is something that goes beyond any automatism, which is why the giants of the web have been working for years to understand how to deal with the issue.
Small steps are always better than nothing: in these days Instagram (source Engadget) puts a new functionality for US users, with which it is possible to reporter false news. In the settings, those that are accessed by touching the three vertical dots, you can now report a content as “inappropriate” and then specified “false information”. What happens then? The source isn’t clear: we know that if the report proves to be founded, the post will not be removed but will lose a lot of visibility. The creator of the offending post will not be notified.
The application of commercial duties for products imported from China to the USA postponed for three months: the 10% tax is therefore postponed, and even removed entirely for certain types of products.
Originally the new import taxes had to become operational starting from next September 1st. The new decision seems to be designed not to affect North American consumers, and the retailer industry in general, at a time like the one before Christmas, which historically sees a large number of electronic products invade the market.
The list of products with duties moved in mid-December includes mobile phones, laptops, consoles, screens, some types of games as well as products related to clothing and footwear. For some other products the tariffs have been completely canceled, but at the moment it has not been given a detailed list of what these products are.
