Trump’s revised tax plan makes the tax code less progressive, giving most benefits to the rich . (Rejoice republicans: he’s now ‘mainstream’ GOP!) The right-leaning Tax Foundation released an analysis. Trump's campaign would shrink federal revenues by as much as $5.9 trillion over 10 years. http://www.npr.org/2016/09/19/494580145/analysis-trump-tax-plan-would-cost-trillions-boost-incomes-for-the-rich

His promise - the same old Supply Side incantation of 30 years - is that the rich would invest then in productive factories and the resulting economic activity - taxed at lower rates - would erase deficits. Only that never happened. Ever. Even once in 30 years of promises. Ever. At all.

Even the Tax Foundation does not swallow it anymore, saying Trump’s plan will send debt skyrocketing.
The plan would also help the rich more than the middle class, according to the Tax Foundation. And there's still one huge, $1.5 trillion uncertainty in the plan.

Rebecca MacKinnon: We can fight terror without sacrificing our rights https://go.ted.com/Cys3
Can we fight terror without destroying democracy? Internet freedom activist Rebecca MacKinnon thinks that we'll lose the battle against extremism and demagoguery if we censor the internet and press. In this critical talk, she calls for a doubling-down on strong encryption and appeals to governments to better protect, not silence, the journalists and activists fighting against extremists.

David Burkus: Why you should know how much your coworkers get paid https://go.ted.com/Cys8
How much do you get paid? How does it compare to the people you work with? You should know, and so should they, says management researcher David Burkus. In this talk, Burkus questions our cultural assumptions around keeping salaries secret and makes a compelling case for why sharing them could benefit employees, organizations and society.

Sebastian Kraves: The era of personal DNA testing is here https://go.ted.com/CysR
From improving vaccines to modifying crops to solving crimes, DNA technology has transformed our world. Now, for the first time in history, anyone can experiment with DNA at home, in their kitchen, using a device smaller than a shoebox. We are living in a personal DNA revolution, says biotech entrepreneur Sebastian Kraves, where the secrets buried in DNA are yours to find.

Eric Liu: Let's make voting fun again https://go.ted.com/CysV
Good talk.
Many people like to talk about how important voting is, how it's your civic duty and responsibility as an adult. Eric Liu agrees with all that, but he also thinks it's time to bring joy back to the ballot box. The former political speechwriter details how he and his team are fostering the culture around voting in the 2016 US presidential election — and closes with a powerful analysis of why anyone eligible should show up on Election Day.

The place was surprisingly quite busy, but service was prompt and friendly and of course the food and beverage was good. ☺

Food is great. Large selection of most items (Food and Not food). Atmosphere is clean and friendly. Also the checkouts are fairly rapid. Also good discounts.

Have been there twice so far. 2 and yesterday respectively.Both times the service was very fast and efficient and all the workers were very kind and courteous. Both times the food was excellently done, looked good and tasted great. The pricing is close to normal for this type of place (> fast food but still fairly inexpensive considering the food is high quality.) I fully recommend this place to anyone. Further note: they do have wi-fi.

Had stopped by earlier this evening. The décor was clean and well done, The service was excellent and the food was quite good and about standard in pricing. The selection of food is quite varied and the serving sizes were quite good. (I had the 'Florentine Eggs Benedict' with hash browns and my girlfriend had the 'Southern Eggs Benedict' with home fries. As an appetizer we had the 'Fried Combo' (Onion rings, Chicken Fingers, Mozzarella sticks, and Potato Skins.)). All in all I felt it was a very good place to eat and do intend to go there again. I do recommend this place. Oh, and one nice surprise. My girlfriend had noticed the ketchup had been locally made by a company (U.S. Grown) in Williamson, NY. Less than 20 miles from here.

These people are great. Took my car in for an inspection (had already failed at a dealership) and they inspected and repaired it for $100's less then every other place I had checked. (~15 places). They were kind and courteous and were quite knowledgeable. Also they were quite prompt and fast with the repairs (full strut assembly replacement in the rear) and my car was finished within 5 hours of taking it in. (Note: I had been referred there by my brother-in-law who is a mechanic himself for the city.)
