Was one of your New Year´s resolution to become a millionaire overnight? If so you need to head to your local convenience store and buy both Powerball and Mega Millions lottery tickets. There were no winners in Saturday night´s Powerball drawing, so the jackpot has now reached $440 million. The next drawing is Wednesday night. The Mega Millions grand prize is Tuesday and it´s almost as large-- it´s up to $343 million. The combined total for those two prizes: $783 million. According to CNNMoney, it’s rare for the jackpots in both games to get so big. But it’s about to become more common. Both Mega Millions and

I stand a greater chance of being struck by lightning. But I understand the allure: if you don´t play, you can´t win. Contributed my share to the office pool last year. Finally swore it off.

I figure it´s money I´m not spending in a bar or on cigs...and cigs are what, $7/pack. I´m sure I spend less in a month (or months) than a smoker pays in a week.

There is little wonder why so many live from paycheck to paycheck. So many are so ABSOLUTELY unbelievably stupid. The higher they raise the odds on a lottery game, the more ticket they sell . . . Explain to me the genius in that.

The article fails to mention that both of these lotteries have doubled the ticket price from $1 per ticket to $2/ticket.

Don´t bother to buy tickets. The guy at the convenience store told me he sold me both the winning tickets for each lottery last night.

I´d hate to take your money.

Everybody would play if it was easy to win. What they´re selling is the hope of winning. Hope is a quality with no boundary.

House Intel Committee finishes
its Russia probe interviews
CBS News, by Olivia Victoria Gazis    Original Article

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, announced that the House Intelligence Committee´s interview phase of its investigation into collusion and Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign has concluded. Conaway told reporters Monday, "We found no evidence that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it colluded with the Russians." The Intelligence Committee did find, however, that Russia took active measures to meddle in the 2016 election, and that the majority expects it to undertake similar measures again. Now, Conaway said, the committee will move on to write its report, the first draft of which the GOP majority

Rep. Maxine Waters, who spent the better part of the inauguration season calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump — before he even took over the White House seat, mind you — and the better part of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation calling for the same, has found a new “let’s get ‘im, guys” cause to crow, and it’s named Stormy Daniels. Honestly, Waters is like a parrot with a vocabulary of one word. “This business about Stormy is not going to go away,” she said, during an interview with MSNBC.

A porn star suing President Trump offered Monday to return $130,000 she was paid to keep mum about their alleged sexual affair so that she can talk about the relationship. Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, offered to pay back the money in a letter to Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, seeking to settle her lawsuit to void a nondisclosure agreement. In the letter, Ms. Clifford’s lawyer Michael Avenatti said the money would be repaid by Friday and Mr. Trump had until noon Tuesday to accept the offer. “This has never been about the money,” Clifford’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told NBC News

Comedian Kathy Griffin is embarking on her comeback, some nine months after she provoked outrage — and lost much of her work — by posing with a fake severed head that appeared to depict President Donald Trump. Griffin announced on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher” on Friday night that she had just booked upcoming shows at New York’s Carnegie Hall and at Washington’s Kennedy Center — “Trump’s backyard,” she called it. “I’m dipping my toes into touring again,” Griffin said, adding that the Republican president and his supporters would prefer she never worked again.

The Metropolitan Opera fired James Levine on Monday evening, ending its association with a conductor who defined the company for more than four decades after an investigation found what the Met called credible evidence that Mr. Levine had engaged in “sexually abusive and harassing conduct.” The investigation, which the Met opened in December after a report in The New York Times, found evidence of abuse and harassment “both before and during the period” when Mr. Levine worked at the Met, the company said in a statement. The Met did not release the specific findings of its investigation, which it said had included

Battling the East River Current, Divers

With the current in the East River between Manhattan and Queens running south at about three knots and the downed helicopter lashed to a tugboat, rescue divers on Sunday night had only one option. They told the tugboat captain to cut the propellers and resigned themselves to drifting with the current as they tried to cut five passengers out of the helicopter, their bodies underwater and cinched with harnesses heavy enough to let them lean over and snap photographs of the New York City skyline. By the time the divers plucked them out, it was too late. By the time the divers plucked them out, it was too late. The five passengers —

Kim Jong Un wants to sign a peace treaty after meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump, South Korean media reported, reviving a long-held goal of the North Korean regime.

(Video) - A tourist helicopter plunged into the East River on Sunday night, killing five passengers who were trapped inside the sinking vessel while the pilot scrambled to safety, police sources said. The Eurocopter AS350 went down around 88th Street, near Gracie Mansion, at about 7:15 p.m., sources said. The pilot got out and climbed aboard a raft, but five others remained trapped inside the capsized and sinking helicopter, according to sources. “There was about a minute where we didn’t see anyone come out, then after a minute we saw a man come out holding onto a raft screaming, ‘Help! help!

The White House on Sunday vowed to help provide “rigorous firearms training” to some schoolteachers and formally endorsed a bill to tighten the federal background checks system, but backed off President Trump’s earlier call to raise the minimum age to purchase some guns to 21 years old from 18 years old. Responding directly to last month’s gun massacre at a Florida high school, the administration rolled out a series of policy proposals that focus largely on mental health and school safety initiatives. The idea of arming some teachers has been controversial and has drawn sharp opposition from the National Education Association,

I don’t allow them to say anything negative, ever, about the president,” Todd said. “It creates a challenge to all parents when he uses vulgarities like that.” The president’s use of an epithet also drew the ire of veteran broadcaster Tom Brokaw, who expressed

Moon Township, PA - US President Donald Trump said on Saturday he rejected a demand from Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto that Trump say Mexico would not have to pay for a proposed US border wall. At a campaign rally in western Pennsylvania for a Republican congressional candidate, Trump gave some details of a testy phone call he had last month with Pena Nieto that led to the postponement of plans for the Mexican leader´s first visit to the White House. Trump brought up the issue when the crowd started chanting "Build that Wall." Trump called Pena Nieto a "really nice guy" who made his request respectfully.

Hillary Clinton isn’t ready to let go of her election loss to President Trump. Clinton is in Mumbai, India, at the India Today Conclave, a “a meeting point for the best minds from India and around the world to map the geopolitical and economic future of the country.” But instead of keeping her focus on the complex and numerous problems facing India, Clinton took aim Monday at Americans who voted for Trump. Her patronizing and condescending words targeted voters in states that twice voted for Obama, and show she still doesn’t understand why Americans didn’t vote for her. Clinton compared herself

NEW DELHI —Hillary Clinton said over the weekend during a trip to India that America did not “deserve” the presidency of Donald Trump. Clinton spoke at a Mumbai event where the former presidential candidate schmoozed with Bollywood stars and was warmly introduced as the “woman who should have been the president of the United States of America,” by a well-known journalist. In her speech, Clinton spoke of the dangers of Russian influence and authoritarianism in regimes around the globe. “These are perilous times,” she said.

The event´s host, India Today Editor Aroon Purie, asked Clinton how 52 percent of white women could vote for Trump after the "Access Hollywood" tape was released in the final weeks of the campaign, which featured Clinton

Around the world, different races have varying levels of access to wealth and resources. And in America, the disparity between black and white social mobility is still huge. Which is why one chef is challenging the way people understand racial wealth disparity by charging white customers at his pop-up restaurant more than people of colour. SAARTJ is the brainchild of New Orleans-based chef Tunde Wey. Anyone can dine there but white customers will face an $18 (£13) increase in their bill, compared to others. Tunde is originally from Lagos, Nigeria, and he’s previously organised a nation-wide dinner series called ‘Blackness

With the first gun control measure signed into law in decades, a key Republican member of the Florida Constitutional Revision Commission has drafted a proposal to make sure the age limits and waiting period stand up to any constitutional challenge from opponents. The proposal, by Miami attorney and CRC member Roberto Martinez, was filed with the CRC on Friday, just moments after Gov. Rick Scott signed SB 7026 into law, which bans the sale of any firearm in Florida to anyone over the age of 21, imposes a three-day waiting period on all handgun purchases and bans bump stocks.

‘Coward’. That was the word President Trump chose to describe a security guard who failed to stop America’s most recent school shooting atrocity. He said the inaction by the guard, Scot Peterson, was ‘frankly disgusting’ and he either ‘didn’t react properly under pressure’ or he ‘didn’t have the courage.’ Trump concluded: ‘He certainly did a poor job.’ I thought of this devastating critique when I heard today that Trump had abandoned all his headline-grabbing gun control plans in the wake of last month’s massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
