The Donald Trump for President 2016 campaign has announced that it will pull out of the September 26 schedule debate between democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Trump, unless third-party candidates Gary Johnson and Jill Stein are also allowed to participate.

This is a tactical move believed by most analysis to help Trump because the third-party candidates seem to pull more from Clinton's support then they do from trumps.

College graduates overwhelmingly believe a college education is worth the money, a new Bankrate Money Pulse survey finds. Eighty-nine percent of respondents with a four-year degree say college was a good investment, the survey shows. That's even as the costs make a deeper and deeper bite. Julia Schemmer, a 19-year-old sophomore at University of California-Riverside, said she received financial aid as a freshman, but it wasn't enough. Generally, the older the graduate, the more likely that he or she will say college was a good investment. About a fifth of the younger millennial grads (21%) say college was not worth it, more than any other age group. But a whopping 97% of degree holders 65 or older say it was a good investment, the survey shows.

America has an obesity problem. Most anyone who trusts modern science will not dispute that point. But as with any societal issue, the question is not so much about what the problem is, but rather what to do about it.

But while government is failing to get kids moving, the private market is quietly getting them off their feet again. Just this week, the new app called Pokemon Go launched for mobile devices, bringing the digital world that millennials grew up with to life. The game allows players to travel their neighborhoods and towns on foot to catch wild Pokemon and train them as their own. The game mixes the elements of the game with real life places, that one must travel to on-foot to play.


Give us your medical diagnosis for someone who became faint in the heat and suffered coughing during a couple public speeches and interviews.

Having MS and sensitivity to heat I'll just say I'm glad she is applying for the job of POTUS not Fireplace Technician. Heat Sensitivity at 85 degrees and 43% humidity she would flat die in some of the conditions I've had to work in. Try 97 with 65+% humidity.

Seriously though heat sensitivity is not a disqualifier for president. A top end cooling vest only runs $150 or so a cooling towel an aid caries 10 bucks. I've made no bones about not wanting Hillary for president but lets get real here.
