should president trump be spending weekends at mar-a-lago?


this is part of the washington post's new podcast series. episodes of “can he do that?” come out every friday. listen here.when former president george w. bush was in office, he retreated to the prairie chapel ranch in texas. john f. kennedy spent time at the kennedy compound in m achusetts during his tenure. preferring warmer weather, harry s. truman often stayed at a place that e to be known as the little white house in florida. throughout history, u.s. presidents have found ways to get away from washington — that’s nothing new.what is new, though, is scale: president trump frequents his mar-a-lago resort in florida, has a triplex penthouse in trump tower in downtown manhattan and has his last name emblazoned on dozens of properties around the world.what does it take to secure these prop






the news of the day, in trump-friendly format


the new york times reports on a shift in how the white house national security council staff are preparing for meetings under the new president.“[w]hile mr. obama liked policy option papers that were three to six single-spaced pages, council staff members are now being told to keep papers to a single page, with lots of graphics and maps.‘the president likes maps,’ one official said.”with that in mind — and since president trump has started taking the local paper now that he lives in washington — we decided to take five news stories from monday’s washington post and present them in trump-friendly format.so you see: the washington post wants to make sure all of our subscribers are happy, including the one who lives at 1600 pennsylvania ave. n.w.

desean jackson calls out redskins for forgetting him in instagram post


after tom brady and the patriots capped off the greatest comeback in super bowl history on sunday night, the redskins announced in an instagram post that the “2017 season starts now.” patriots coach bill belichick would probably argue that the redskins’ 2017 season should’ve started five weeks ago, when washington was eliminated from playoff contention, but that’s not what’s notable about the post, which caught the eye of redskins receiver desean jackson.2017 season begins now. we are all 0-0. #httra p o posted by washington redskins (@redskins) on feb 5, 2017 at 7:28pm pstnote the players featured in the image: josh norman, trent williams, kirk cousins, jordan reed and ryan kerrigan. they’re all among the redskins’ biggest stars, but one of these players is not like the others.

since trump be e president, americans think our global standing has slipped


there has been no shortage of news reports about president trump’s foreign policy moves since winning the election and uming his new position. there was the call with the leader of taiwan, which prompted annoyance from china and, on thursday, a meek acceptance of china’s position. there were the allegedly contentious calls with australia and france. there was the renewed dispute with mexico. and so on.trump won election by promising to shake things up and — mission accomplished. polling just released from gallup, though, suggests that americans see the dawn of the trump era as eroding, not improving, the country’s position in the world.ever since the advent of the war in iraq, americans have been dis isfied with our position in the world. at the tail end of the administration of bill clint

russian lawmakers rush to the defense of trump’s ex-national security adviser


moscow — leading russian lawmakers rushed to defend president trump’s former national security adviser on tuesday after he resigned for misleading senior white house officials, including vice president pence, about his contacts with russia.the heads of the foreign affairs committees in both russia’s upper and lower houses of parliament chalked up michael flynn’s resignation to a dark campaign of russophobia in washington, and said it would undermine relations between the white house and the kremlin. konstantin kosachev of the upper house wrote in a post on facebook that readiness for dialogue with moscow was now seen in washington as a “thoughtcrime,” a reference to the george orwell’s dystopian novel 1984. “to force the resignation of the national security adviser for contacts with the ru

aircraft identification - can you identify this airplane?


it's most likely a boeing b-29 superfortress. it was a strategic bomber used by the us in the pacific theater of world war ii. the lower row of four windows and then another further aft matches pictures of the b-29. the "u.s. air force" markings are a post-wwii style.sourceit's also possible that it's a b-50 superfortress. this was an upgraded version of the b-29 with new engines and other changes that are hard to see in the picture. only 370 were built. although it's not clear when the picture was taken, and only 5 examples of the b-50 still exist. the b-29, on the other hand, has way more.






hamburg airport briefly closed after dozens injured by unidentified substance


berlin — german officials on sunday evacuated hundreds of people from hamburg airport and closed the facility for several hours after dozens of passengers reported eye irritation and breathing difficulties in a security luggage-check area. maik lewerenz, spokesman for the federal hamburg police, said that about 68 people were injured by an unknown substance. “we don’t know whether it was a liquid, gas, or a powder,” he said, adding that police were waiting for feedback from the fire department about the nature of the substance.rene schönhardt, spokesman for the hamburg police, said there was “no evidence” that the incident was a terrorist attack. instead, he said, the injuries most likely stemmed from a cartridge containing irritant gas that was found in the bin provided for travelers to d






schnitzel, simplified and amplified - the washington post


pretzel-crusted schnitzel with caraway onion noodles. see recipe, below. (goran kosanovic/for the washington post)i appreciate any winter dish that offers big flavors in a relatively spare profile, and this one fits the bill. a schnitzel is characterized by thin meat, a crunchy coating and pan-frying. in this riff, you’ll opt out of the last and bake instead — a choice that eliminates some fat but mostly helps its mustard-based, herby pretzel exterior stay in place. no flour and egg steps here, which saves time and simplifies the typical schnitzel method.while the meat is in the oven — beef, in this case — you’ll boil the egg noodles, toast caraway seeds and saute an onion. their happy union provides a soft and aromatic counterpoint.






nearly everyone in congress has a college degree. most americans don’t.


pew research compiled five interesting bits of data about the new congress in an article published thursday. congress has more women and more people of color than in the past (though it’s still heavily composed of white men). there are fewer veterans than in congresses past as well.it was the numbers on education that i found the most striking, though. nearly every member of congress has a college degree, with only 5 percent of the house lacking such credentials. every member of the senate has a four-year diploma.(the washington post)what’s remarkable about that is that it’s a much higher rate of educational attainment than is exhibited by the united states on the whole. census bureau data shows that most americans over the age of 25 don’t have a four-year degree — and, in fact, only about
