Washington is infested with career politicians, and after watching Donald Trump Opens a New Window. defeat Hillary Clinton and the D.C. political establishment Opens a New Window. , I was inspired as a fellow entrepreneur Opens a New Window. to run for U.S. Senate. I knew President Trump would need allies from the private sector to enact his economic policies and drain the swamp, and today we are seeing real results: record low unemployment,increased wage growth and tax relief. Thanks to the GOP tax reform (TCJA), thousands of companies across the country – including my company in Jasper, Indiana – were able to increase wages, hire new employees and reinvest in innovation that has spurred historic economic growth for our country. The economic numbers speak for themselves. Under President Trump’s leadership, America has added 5.4 million new jobs and wages have increased by 2.7 percent. Additionally, the national unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent in April, with an unemployment rate of 3.1 percent for women: the lowest since 1953. The U.S. Small Business Administration’s 2019 Small Business Profiles Opens a New Window. recently gave us a great glimpse into how President Trump’s historic tax cuts and regulatory agenda have supercharged American small business. Nearly half of all privately employed Americans work at a small business, and in 2019 companies with fewer than 20 employees got the biggest benefits from the Trump economic boom: adding over a million new jobs across the country. President Trump’s economic policies have pulled America’s economy back from the brink of the wage stagnation and dwindling job numbers of just a few years ago, and put us on a path to long-term prosperity. With this being National Small Business Week across our country, let’s remember that America’s new era of economic prosperity is due to finally having a businessman like President Trump in the White House. Republican Mike Braun represents Indiana in the U.S. Senate. He is a member of the Aging Committee, Agriculture Committee, Budget Committee, Environment & Public Works (EPW) Committee, and the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee (HELP). Before his election to the Senate in 2018, he was the founder and CEO of Meyer Distributing, a company he built in his hometown of Jasper that employs hundreds of Americans across the country.

The Afghan government says at least 24 people have been killed and 11 others injured in the past month as a new wave of heavy rains and flooding has swept parts of the country. A statement released Saturday by the Afghan Ministry for Disaster Management and Humanitarian Affairs says flooding has affected six of Afghanistan's 34 provinces, including the capital, Kabul. Around 500 people were rescued in central Bamyan province's Sheber district, according to the ministry. Nationwide, floods have destroyed over 220 homes this month and partially damaged 116 more, it added. Heavy snowfall across Afghanistan this winter had cut off many areas. So far this year, around 150 people have died as heavy rains and flooding swept away homes in different provinces.

Twenty-nine detainees were killed and 19 police officers were wounded in a confrontation in a cellblock in central Venezuela in what a state official called a failed escape attempt, but human rights groups described as a massacre. The incident took place in the town of Acarigua in a municipal police cellblock in the central state of Portuguesa. "There was an attempted escape and a fight broke out among(rival) gangs," Portuguesa Citizen Security Secretary Oscar Valero told reporters. "With police intervention to prevent the escape, well, there were 29 deaths," he said, adding that some 355 people were being held in the cellblock. Detainees detonated three grenades, which wounded 19 police officers, he said. Venezuela's Information Ministry did not immediately reply to a request for comment. Human rights groups questioned the official version of the events. "How is it that there was a confrontation between prisoners and police, but there are only dead prisoners?" Humberto Prado of the Venezuelan Prisons Observatory said in a telephone interview. "And if the prisoners had weapons, how did those weapons get in?" Detainees for several days had been demanding that government ombudsmen help them avoid being transferred to distant prisons where they would not be able to receive visits from relatives, Prado said. Authorities entered the cell block to carry out searches and remove visiting women when violence broke out, Prado said, estimating the facility in fact held some 540 inmates. Police cellblocks in Venezuela are meant to hold citizens for 48 hours while they face formal charges. But detained citizens can spend months or even years in such facilities because prisons are too overcrowded to receive them and because of chronic delays in basic criminal justice proceedings required to indict them. In 2018, a riot that led to a fire in a police cellblock in the central city of Valencia killed 68 people, including two women who were visiting. Carlos Nieto of human rights group A Window to Freedom said the country has around 500 cellblocks with capacity to hold around 7,000 people that currently have nearly 55,000 detainees in custody.

At least 13 people were hurt Friday in an explosion in the French city of Lyon, prompting a national investigation into possible terrorism. The blast occurred in the early evening in the city's central shopping area. Eleven of the 13 injured were taken to hospital, including a 10-year-old child, the Paris Prosecutor's office said Saturday. French police are still looking for the person suspected of carrying out the attack, according to a tweet from the French National Police verified Twitter account. Police also tweeted a photo of the man they believed to be "the author of the attack" and asked the public to call with any information. French President Emmanuel Macron characterized the blast as an attack shortly after it happened, telling an interviewer: "I'm late because there was an attack in Lyon." Investigators believe the explosion may have been caused by a parcel bomb packed with nails, a spokeswoman for the city prosecutor told CNN. The city's second district mayor, Denis Broliquier, said on French television channel BFMTV that overall damage was not severe because "the load of the parcel bomb" did not cause much of an impact. Victims' wounds, he added, were caused by "pieces of metal and glass." An investigation into "terrorist conspiracy" has been opened, French Justice Minister Nicole Belloubet announced hours after the explosion. Hanane Benakkouche, a waitress at the nearby restaurant L'espace Brasserie, told CNN of the moment the blast went off. "We heard an explosion. I was working on the terrace and people started running, leaving Victor Hugo Street," she recalled. "Policemen arrived quickly on the scene. I'm still shocked." The evacuated scene was visible in photos tweeted by the regional police of Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, which asked the public to avoid the area. Emergency responders were assisting the wounded, a spokesperson for the Police Nationale told CNN, adding that the priority would be assisting victims "regardless of if it was a car crash or a terrorist attack." Later in the day, Macron tweeted, "Tonight I think of the wounded in the explosion in Lyon, their families affected by the violence that has befallen their loved ones in the street, and all of Lyon. We are by your side." Source: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/lyon-explosion-prompts-terror-investigation-in-france/ar-AABRH25

Somewhere in the wild by Fredapsychic


Somewhere in the wild

In my little tiny house

It’s so cold, I have a jacket on

Listening to the birds chirping

Crazy how the little things make me happy

It’s amazing how my mind works

Everything i visualize becomes my reality

The power of the mind

It’s the most valuable asset

Yet some don’t value it because they have it for free

The power of the mind

It’s unimaginable


I’ve been so hurt in the past

Betrayed by people who i thought had my back

Life of a dark empath

Filled with so many emotions

Feeling emotions deeper than usual

Dealing with feelings that are not even mine

Helping people out of the goodness of my heart without expecting anything in return

These same people would drag my name through the mud at any chance they got


I heard the phone calls

I heard the side talks

I heard everything false that was spoken about me

I know they see my light

Lucia she calls me

Shining brightly even when i can’t see it

Sometimes we are blind to our own light

But others can see it

Sometimes they are intimidated by it

Sometimes they are intrigued by it

Other times they want to drag you down

They want to make you feel less than you are


I’ve done so much for people that don’t deserve any of my kindness

All they did was take advantage of it

This made me become cold hearted

Sometimes you go through a series of experiences and pain

You just go numb to it

You don’t feel it anymore

You become heartless

The same people wonder why you became like that

It’s not even about people anymore

It’s about how i feel on the inside

I had to go through a lot of healing and self reflection

Deep down i know i am a kind and loving person but it’s hard to show it in a world that sees such traits as weakness


I began to protect myself and cut toxic people out of my life

Even at the slightest sign of me being taken advantage of or made to feel less than i am

If i am not treated with love and respect, i am out

I honestly don’t have time for anything that isn’t bringing me joy and peace

I am beginning to be more selfish with myself and keep my peace


I noticed i love to play

As a child i wasn’t allowed to play much or express myself

I was super active as a child and they always told me to stay calm

They tried to make me become who i wasn’t

I had to grow up re-parenting myself

I had to remind myself that it is okay to play

I had to remind myself that it is okay to say how you feel

I had to remind myself that my opinions matter

I’m still in the process of healing

I protect my energy and sanity at all cost

I don’t want anything disrupting my inner world again


The world is full of wolves looking for prey

You either hunt or be hunted

You’re either a hunter or a prey

I’m living everyday life as it comes

Sometimes I’m still confused about what this is all about

I lay in bed wondering what my purpose is on this earth

I guess non of us are making it out here alive

I strive to live my truth

I strive to be my true authentic self

Till i let go of my physical body

My soul and works would live on

The writer apologized to a man who spent 16 years in prison for her rape

Alice Seabold apologized for the illegal conviction of a man who was found not guilty of raping her in 1981.


In her first book, Lucky, Seabord described being raped. Anthony Broadwater was convicted of the crime. He spent 16 years in prison and was on the sex offender registry for more than 20 years.


Seabold also wrote the novel The Lovely Bones, which Peter Jackson turned into an Oscar-nominated film.


"I am most sorry that the life you could have been unjustly stolen from you, and I know that no apology can change what has happened to you," Seabold said in a statement.

A statement released by Broadwater's lawyers said he was "relieved that she apologized."

Seabold's first autobiographical novel sold more than a million copies, which marked the beginning of her writing career.

In it, she described in detail how an 18-year-old student at Syracuse University in New York was raped.
