This is the catchphrase of the night, period!Joe Biden had no plans to moderate the first presidential debate, but he did have one very important question for Donald Trump that we all were dying to ask: “Will you shut up, man?” Joe Biden might feel like he’s dealing with a 3-year-old… (no offense, whatsoever!)For those who chose not to torture themselves from this extremely painful night of two old men talking over each other, here’s you all need to know:Donald Trump seems to be incapable of listening quietly and having a productive conversation like the one we would expect from a grownup adult. He kept on interrupting Joe Biden, like any 3-year-old would do, instead of holding a constructive debate that everyone could understand! Then, these two grumpy old men started raising their voices over the actual debate moderator, Fox News’ Chris Wallace.And the moderator appeared to be too helpless to control the two.At one point, Joe Biden had had enough with Trump’s continuous yammering and he said, “Will you shut up, man?”—exactly what many people have been wanting to say for years now!Wallace had no choice but to end the segment, and Biden sarcastically said, “That was really a productive segment, wasn’t it?” and threw a “Keep yappin’, man” at Trump. There are many key points to take away from this not-so-productive debate, but “Will you shut up, man” has become the iconic phrase of the night! The phrase explains the mood of all the frustrated Americans out there, doesn't it?It’s definitely a painful watch, folks, but especially for this specific person!We feel you now, Hillary…
This school-from-home thing has been quite a challenge for parents, especially when you’ve got four kids constantly bugging you for one problem or another. But this genius mom of Arizona siblings has a brilliant workaround! Jaala James is an 18-year-old college student who, like many other kids, is taking her first semester remotely. She has eight siblings, six of whom still live at home; she’s trying so hard to get her studies done without being distracted.“I have ADD, my sister has ADD, my brother has ADD, and all of us are super talkative,” she told the private news organization. “We cannot stop each other.”Also, there was no space! Even the large dining area wouldn’t be enough to accommodate all the six children with laptops and textbooks into the chaos. So, their genius mom had a brilliant idea: cubicles!So, the genius mom bought six cubicles online and entirely transformed their entertainment room into a full-fledged office! The elder sibling made a TikTok video of the cubicles, and people were so amazed! Some were making fun of them, while many were so impressed and praised the mom for this brilliant hack.Source: TikTokObviously, James and her siblings absolutely love them. They are so in love with their dedicated space and dividers to keep the noise and other distractions at bay. Also, there is still sufficient space left for their three dogs to hang out while the kids are taking their lessons online.“The cubicles are great for sectioning off sound and my grades have been fantastic,” said James.The kids and their mom even re-created a scene from the infamous show ‘The Office.’And to fuel up the excitement, their mom actually placed a “student of the week” board; the cutest thing about which is that the weekly winner is always one of the dogs. So, who’s heading to buy some cubicles for the kids?
David Attenborough debuted on Instagram last week and ended up becoming the fastest account to reach 1 million followers – beating Jennifer Aniston!This terrific broadcaster took only 4 hours and 44 minutes to make the record, and since then, his followers have only quadrupled!The Instagram throne was previously held by Jennifer Aniston who joined Instagram last year in October. She made history by gathering 1 million followers in 5 hours and 16 minutes. Before her, the same honor was shared by David Beckham, Pope Francis, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. It’s wild to witness a 94-year-old broadcaster with a seven decade long career beating them all with an astounding time record!“I’m making this move and exploring this new way of communication to me because, as we all know, the world is in trouble. Continents are on fire. Glaciers are melting. Coral reefs are dying. Fish are disappearing from our oceans. The list goes on.”– said the Attenborough in his first-ever Instagram video.He wishes to use the online platform to tackle environmental concerns and share potential solutions with the younger audience.“I feel privileged that they should listen to what an old bloke like me is talking about.” – says a hopeful Attenborough.Attenborough is not finished; he has a new documentary premiering on Netflix on the 4th of October. It’s called A Life on Our Planet. In the documentary, he’ll be recalling the natural wonders of the world that he’s experienced throughout his life as well as the destruction beyond repair. “Human beings have overrun the world. This film is my witness statement and my vision for the future”– he says in the documentary trailer.Attenborough has managed to make several Guinness World Records in the past. First he did it when his debut documentary called Planet Earth became the most on-demand documentary in TV history. In addition, he also holds the record for the longest career holder as a TV presenter and TV naturalist!He took the song ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ too seriously, and we’re happy that he did!
It’s becoming increasingly important to use our power and vote out the psychopath that currently sits in the Oval Office. So whether you’re present somewhere down in America or in another orbit outside the surface of Earth – just vote!Four American astronauts realize the significance of this moment and so they’ve decided to vote during the general election from the outer hemisphere – continuing the longstanding tradition of people casting votes from space. The first astronaut to cast in her vote at the ISS is Kate Rubins. She’ll be launching on a Russian Soyuz rocket on the 14th of October with two Russian cosmonauts. “I think it’s really important for everybody to vote. If we can do it from space, then I believe folks can do it from the ground, too.” – She said. Rubins will be followed by Mike Hopkins, Viktor Glover, and Shannon Walker – currently on the second flight of SpaceX’s Crew Dragon, they’ll be catching up with her at the ISS on the 31st of October. A Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi will be in their company as well. They all plan to vote from the orbit. This will be the second time that Walker will be voting from the orbit. She did it the first time during her International Space Station trip back in 2010.“All of us are planning on voting from space. NASA works very well with the different election organizations, because we’re all voting in different counties. But it was easiest for us just to say we were going to vote from space, so that’s what we’re going to do.” – She says.Contrary to popular belief, casting a ballot from space is a fairly straightforward process. There’s been a continuous human presence on the International Space Station for the past two decades all thanks to NASA and its consistent efforts. So basically, before they take off, NASA astronauts are asked to fill out a Federal Post Card Application – the same form that military members use in case of absence due to deployment during the election. If it’s approved, the county clerks overseeing the election within each applicant’s home counties send out test ballots to NASA. The agency also checks whether or not the ballots can be filled in space. If confirmed, the NASA’s Mission Control Center emails them ballots on the Election Day. The rest of the process is usual.Of course, the process may be simple but nothing about voting from space is ordinary. Whether you’re in space or in USA, you know that this year specifically has been a rough year for Americans, thus the SpaceX’s Crew Dragon is aptly named Resilience. “That means functioning well in times of stress or overcoming adverse events. I think all of us can agree that 2020 has certainly been a challenging year: a global pandemic, economic hardships, civil unrest, and isolation.” – Said Hopkins about the name. Let’s take inspiration from these bright minds and cast in our votes on the Election Day!
New York Times has unveiled the truth that we always knew – Donald Trump is a haphazard businessman and a serial bankruptcy artist with more stuff in his mouth than he can chew. The critical news was publicized on Sunday evening – disclosing years of tax returns. According to the report, Trump only paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016, and this was the year he got elected as the President of the United States. He paid the same amount the next year, the year he formally stepped in the White House. And in the years after that, he hasn’t paid a single penny of his own. Donald Trump is the same man who paid his daughter consulting fees in abundance which he deducted as a business expense – she was only helping him manage the Trump Organization. This isn’t where the list ends; Trump has taken tax write-offs for his hair as well as to manage his personal residential expenses. This evidence says a lot about the man who currently occupies the Oval Office. Source: BloombergTo start off, his indebtedness and dependence on income from overseas is a threat to national security. If the man gets elected again, the problem will only escalate. These tax returns simply elaborate how Trump has repeatedly betrayed the interests of American citizens, even the ones who support him. As per the recent report, Trump has a debt of $421 million which he has guaranteed that he will return in the coming years. This is separate from the personal debts that he carries. According to Russ Choma, Trump’s debts are approximately $500 million, and that he has made arduous efforts to hide them from public. Dan Alexander has been covering Trump’s business interests since 2016 and he has revealed that his total debt may round up to $1.1 billion. Trump has been lying to us all along – he’s not actually worth $10 billion like he claimed back when he got elected. Yes, he may be with a fraction of that amount, but the more his debts increase, his worth lessens and the strain on his personal assets increases. And believe it or not, the pandemic has actually harmed his businesses – real estate, travel, and leisure. The three sectors of businesses were nullified during the lockdown. To meet his debts, Trump would have to sell his assets or ask friends for fund to get a bail. But it seems unlikely that he would sell any of his assets – since he isn’t a fan of selling personal assets. Apart from his personal debts, it’s essential to realize that avoiding tax payments is also a crime – an alarming evidence for the Trump supporters. If you remember that back in 2017, Trump and the Republican Party had formulated a massive tax cut which turned out to be advantageous for the affluent Americans. Let’s take a moment to remember that Trump criticized Obama for paying “only” $161,950 taxes in 2012. We do think that Trump has outdone himself on hypocrisy!
Donald Trump, the President of the United States, is a fraud whose business empire is failing. For years, the business tycoon has cited that his business is flourishing. The narcissist has made many statements regarding his business acumen – pretty questionable considering the latest reports:"I did a lot of great deals, and I did them early and young. And now I'm building all over the world, and I love what I'm doing. I'm really proud of my success. I really am." – said Donald Trump in 2015. His frame of success is quite complicated as many of his professional ventures turned sour too soon. The New York Times untangled his tax records and publicized his diminishing finances and increasing debts on Sunday. Through these reports, much attention was also given to how Trump’s father had a critical role in his business successes. Source: JuristHis dirty laundry is now out in the open so let’s discuss the major traps:Trump Hasn’t Paid Federal Income Taxes for Years11 out of 18 times, the man has gotten away without paying the income taxes. In 2016 and 2017 – the year he got elected and officially entered the White House – he paid $750 as the federal income tax. The master strategy to avoid taxes was also examined in the formidable report. Apparently, business owners have the ability to go about their businesses, avoiding taxes in the future years if their losses are larger than the yearly income. Most of His Businesses Are Burning Large Stacks of MoneyMany federal investigations have unraveled that some of Trump’s businesses are flourishing and earning high profits. However, there are some businesses that are simply burning large amounts of cash. Apparently, his major business ventures are losing millions of dollars every year;his golf courses, for example, have lost more than $350 million in the past two decades.Trump’s Tower in New York Is a Key Money Maker Whereas His DC Hotel Is NotThis business empire building that sits on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue has earned a profit of more than $20 million every year since 2000. In addition, his state towers in New York and San Francisco also deliver top profits. However, the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC isn’t doing as well as one would like it to be. The hotel was inaugurated four years ago and has apparently made a loss of $55 million ever since. Donald Trump Loves Himself Trump is open to branding and licensing – his famous steaks and water bottles are an ode to his love for himself, more like his narcissism. The New York’s Times has revealed that this is his biggest business strategy, and that, it seems to be working for him. He Makes Money from Foreign Deals Even After Taking Presidency Remember when Trump took the Oval Office and promised to not indulge in foreign businesses during his tenure? Well, he lied. In fact, you’d be surprised to know that he collected revenue of $73 million in the first two years of presidency through his foreign businesses. This raises questions regarding conflicts of interest. More than 140 of his companies are currently doing business with 25 countries worldwide. New York Times has published this report at a time that couldn’t be more perfect,as the election is right around the corner! Do you want your President to be a major tax fraud? Let us know through your vote!
