Michael B. Sauter and Charles Stockdale 24/7 Wall Street Published 12:53 PM EST Jan 8, 2019 In 2017, there were 5,147 accidental deaths in the American workplace, slightly down from the previous year's 5,190 deaths, but still close to the highest annual total in a decade. One cause for the high totals is the rising toll of drug overdoses experienced by workers on the job. Drug overdose deaths on the job have increased by at least 25 percent in each of the last five years. The figures come from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ annual National Census Of Fatal Occupational Injuries report. The report shows that certain occupations carry a much higher risk of dying on the job than others. In an interview with 24/7 Wall St., Ken Kolosh, manager of statistics at the National Safety Council, said the occupations with the highest fatality rates tend to have one of three things in common: they involve working from dangerous heights where a fall would be … [Read more...] about Most dangerous jobs in the US: Where fatal injuries happen most often

Marco della Cava USA TODAY Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Aug 23, 2018 SAN FRANCISCO – On Saturday night, someone on California's foggy Monterey Peninsula could buy a used car for upward of $60 million. And they'll feel like they got a deal, even though the car is 56 years old. The vehicle in question is a 1962 Ferrari GTO. To call it a car, however, is a bit like calling Picasso’s “Guernica” a doodle. Only 36 GTOs were built, and today they represent the ne plus ultra of automobiledom, four-wheeled talismans from a time when cars didn’t drive themselves, noises were your diagnostic tool and danger rode shotgun. Hand built between 1962 and 1964, the GTO quickly rose to the top ranks of Ferrari's road-racing steeds and has never relinquished that perch. Ferrari GTO owners are an elite and by choice largely secretive group. Over time they have included the likes of fashion icon Ralph Lauren, Goldman Sachs’ Peter … [Read more...] about Monterey Car Show 2018: Ferrari GTO from 1962 could sell for $60 million
Sputnik: Mr. Scalea, what is the Bilderberg Group? Who created it and to what purpose? Daniele Scalea: The Bilderberg Group is a sort of elite club which meets annually. It was founded in the 1950s, and gathered the representatives of the political, economic and social elite of North America and Europe. The initiative was part of the Atlanticist effort against the Soviet Union during the Cold War. The founder of the group was exiled Polish politician Jozef Retinger, founder of the Council of Europe and the European Movement, acting with the approval of the White House and the patronage of Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands.

Picture: AFP Lexington: The speech? Marco Rubio: Yeah, I’m kind of giving a framework on our, I say domestic policy, but really it’s the challenges that every, advanced, industrialised Western country, and maybe some in Asia are, are facing. You see it manifest politically, but you see it manifest socially and culturally, so… You’re planning a speech in the Senate on this? I don’t know when it is, I’m trying to write a bunch of my thoughts together. But this is the new conservative agenda? Well, I mean the conservative part is about what the broader conservative response to the issues should be. I’m, I’m an incredibly optimistic person; like I believe human beings are creatures of, by nature, problem solvers. Not...we wouldn’t be on earth still if we hadn’t solved problems, but that doesn’t mean solving them is easy. But I still believe that some point in the future, a hundred years from now, fifty years from … [Read more...] about Transcript: An interview with Marco Rubio
After eight years of displeasure with the presidency of Barack Obama and faced with a choice between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Dennis Schminke of Austin, Minnesota, didn't have to think hard about how he would vote in 2016. A retired corporate manager, a staunch conservative and a county Republican official, he supported the New York businessman. Since then, there has not been a day that Schminke wished that Clinton, rather than Trump, were president. But week by week, month by month, as he has watched the events of Trump's presidency, he has become increasingly conflicted and concerned about what he has seen. The turmoil, he said, has often left him feeling "motion sick." By early spring, he expressed a different sentiment. He had not fully broken, but he was no longer as emotionally invested in the president or a reconstituted Trumpian Republican Party. "I find myself drawing back a bit," he said. Schminke lives in a section of the Upper Midwest that responded … [Read more...] about Loyalty and unease in Trump’s Midwest
