Democratic U.S. presidential nominee Hillary Clinton told federal investigators that former Secretary of State Colin Powell suggested she use a personal email account, the New York Times reported late on Thursday.

John Oliver is a comedian, and poking fun is his job. Besides, he wasn't saying that journalism has gotten too lazy; he was pointing out the importance of keeping the dying industry of print journalism alive for the sake of all of us.

“I would just ask Mr. Oliver to spend more time talking about what the future of news could be, and less time poking fun at publishers who are trying to get there,” he added.

It’s unclear if Mr. Oliver, a comedian, has the secret for fixing the media business. It’s not exactly his responsibility.
John Oliver sounded off on the sorry state of print journalism during his weekly show on Sunday night, but the Newspaper Association of America isn’t taking the joke.

"We want a social mix," Mr Besnard added. "We don't want any area that is only Muslim or any area where there are no Muslims."

Sure, but a halal supermarket isn't "only Muslim." Anyone can enter and buy groceries; the groceries just are all halal. It's like going to a health food store and demanding they sell junk food, or going to a salad bar and asking for a steak.

I've read that this issue is regarding the specifics of the lease because the lease is for a "general" food store, and not a specialty/religious food store. That's fine, but the "only Muslim" comment doesn't really make sense.
A halal supermarket in Paris has been ordered by local authorities to sell pork and alcohol or face closure. The Good Price mini-market in Colombes has not followed the conditions of its lease, which states the shop must act as a "general food store", the local authority has said. It argues that members of the local community are not being served properly if the shop does not sell pork or alcohol products.

Not surprising, really.
New York Times reporters have covered Donald J. Trump's rallies for more than a year. His supporters at these events often express their views in angry and provocative ways. Here are some examples.

An Irish High Court judge has ruled a litigant could not describe his occupation as "Disciple of Jesus Christ" in a sworn statement. The presiding judge, Mr Justice Richard Humphreys, criticised the litigant for attempting to challenge a decision by the Residential Tenancies Board to fix a market rate for his rent, describing the case as "frivolous, grandiose and vexatious".

In sharp contrast to Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Trump has no experience on national security. Even more important, the character traits he has exhibited during the primary season suggest he would be a poor, even dangerous, commander in chief.

These traits include his obvious need for self-aggrandizement, his overreaction to perceived slights, his tendency to make decisions based on intuition, his refusal to change his views based on new information, his routine carelessness with the facts, his unwillingness to listen to others and his lack of respect for the rule of law.
She is well prepared to be our commander in chief. Donald Trump, in contrast, is a national security threat.

Story
Tagline
Medical Student, Miniature Painter, Gadget Enthusiast, Anime Watcher, PC Gamer.
Introduction
I'm a research technician in the U.S. preparing to go to medical school. On the web, I often go by the screen name kkendd. Please don't ask what that means; it really is just a random sequence of letters that I came up with many years ago during the dial-up era when I began to form an online presence, and is most definitely NOT related to the classic video game KKND.

I enjoy modelling and painting 28mm-scale miniatures, and lately have been working on Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 series miniatures.

I also am a gadget enthusiast, and am nerdy enough to enjoy customizing them. I try to keep up with the latest tech news. I use a custom built desktop, built by me.

I love traveling, although I have little time to go anywhere these days.

Lastly, I make sure I don't lose my Asian-ness by watching the latest Japanese anime.

I'm fluent in English and Korean, and can manage to communicate in the most basic way in Japanese.

I run a Twitter account in Korean (@kkendd). My Google+, on the other hand, will almost exclusively be in English.
Bragging rights
I was on a local newspaper when I was in highschool; My painted miniature was presented on the BBC; I graduated from the University of Notre Dame; I have a Master's Degree in science.

The popular form of Korean chicken ribs are cooked on iron griddle, but according to the locals in Chuncheon, the home of chicken ribs, the original dish is cooked on charcoal grill. I've never had chicken cooked on stone placed on top of the grill, but was pleasantly surprised. For those who love the griddle cooked chicken ribs, I recommend trying the "original" form as well. It's different, and it's good.

Teddy hotel is a decent hotel with giant teddy bears everywhere. The rooms are comfortably large, and some rooms feature whirlpool bathtubs. Breakfast buffet is also included. I did not play golf here, but I've heard good things about the country club. The pool was rather disappointing, however. All in all, Teddy valley hotel was a satisfactory experience with bonus teddy bear cuteness.

Decent course with moderate difficulty. The greens can be a little complicated, but the way there is forgiving. The soil is very soft, perhaps to a fault. The high altitude and island breeze makes the environment enjoyable even in summer, if your tee time is early. The humidity becomes unbearable later in the day, however. Our caddie provided excellent service, and we had a good time.

Hallim park is part botanical garden, mini zoo, and culture center. The majority of Hallim is fairly average, but the jewel of the park is its rich bonsai collection. There's an extensive range of bonsai trees at display, some of them are over 300 years old. To those unfamiliar with bonsai trees, they may just be miniature trees; but to those who know the value of these works of art, these bonsai trees are literally priceless. In fact, it's almost unbelievable how openly accessible these trees are to the guests, considering their value and need for extreme care. If you're planning on visiting, briefly study the artistry before your trip to enhance the enjoyment. This is a one-of-a-kind collection.

Like most people, I visited Mawon to try the exotic horse meat. As expected, the meat was very lean, but pleasantly was not tough. In fact, the meat was soft and tasteful, which made it perfect to be consumed raw. The grilled meat was also excellent, but the burger was rather disappointing. If you're like me and want to try every horse meat dish the restaurant has to offer, then go with the course meal. Highly recommended for adventurous foodies.

Every great sushi chef has a unique selection of dishes for his omakase service. Sushi Hoshikai's master chef Lim was knowledgeable, delicate, and skillful. Many of his creations displayed a hint of Jeju's taste, combined seamlessly with his Kyoto trained deliciousness. As an added bonus, the complimentary cold matcha served throughout the dinner is outstanding. There's no doubt Sushi Hoshikai is the best sushi restaurant in Jeju.

Everything here is fresh! The seaweed soup, served as an appetizer of sorts, was the signal of a good start. Then came the fish, both baked and stewed, and they were both excellent. I also had Jeju's famous abalone soup, which was possibly the best dish on an already delicious table. The restaurant had a dedicated parking lot, and also features electric car charging stations. There's also free Wi-Fi.
