Amazon Officials '' Actually Like ' 2 Chicago Websites: Mayor Emanuel

Pictured: Making of Tribune Media’s 9 million-square-foot Chicago Riverfront redevelopment, among five sites expected to be thought about by Amazon if the e-commerce giant selects Chicago for HQ2.It’s still uncertain if Chicago will be chosen as the winner or possibly a 2nd round of Amazon HQ2 hopefuls, however Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Monday that it’s his understanding that Amazon officials”really like”two city websites. Emanuel was speaking at an interview formally announcing

Walgreen’s decision to move 1,800 of its digital and IT workers into the Old Post Workplace at 433 W. Van Buren St. at the south leg of the Chicago River. That place was among 10 sites initially offered

to Amazon, which is still considering 20 city finalists for its huge economic development treasure trove of a second head office that would ultimately house 50,000 staff members. Amazon made a secret see to Chicago earlier this year and visited 5 sites. The mayor, afraid of breaching privacy with Amazon, cautiously reacted to

a question about whether the Old Post Workplace was now off Amazon’s competitors list following the lease to Walgreens.”I wish to be careful,”the mayor said.”When they came, they saw five websites. It’s our understanding they like, truly

like, two sites.” He didn’t reveal which websites they may be, however published reports hypothesized they could include one of these 5 websites:

Lincoln Yards, Sterling Bay’s 70-acre riverfront website that includes the previous Finkl Steel in between the Lincoln Park and Bucktown neighborhoods.The River District, a 37-acre site owned by Tribune Media between Chicago and Grand avenues.A Fulton Market location.The Burnham Lakefront site, a planned redevelopment of the former Michael Reese Healthcare facility south of Interstate 55 and McCormick Place. The 78, Related Midwest’s 62-acre proposed redevelopment along the Chicago River nestled between the South Loop and Chinatown. It’s uncertain when Amazon may make its next move, which could taper the city list to 10 or select a website
outright.

NEW YORK– Attorneys for Jay-Z told a judge that the Securities and Exchange Commission has actually gone on a “celeb hunt” by requiring the rapper send to limitless questioning beginning Friday about a business to which he sold his garments company more than a years ago.

The lawyers wrote in a submission in Manhattan federal court that Jay-Z is worried that the SEC’s demand is “driven more by governmental fascination with celebrity and headlines than by any correct investigative purpose.”

In a declaration filed with the court Monday, Jay-Z’s lawyers stated he has agreed to stand for one day before the SEC, however the firm desires more. The Justice Department, which represents the SEC in court, declined remark.

Jay-Z, whose birth name is Shawn Carter, need to appear before the SEC in Washington on Friday for a deposition of unlimited duration unless he can describe why it should not be required, U.S. District Judge Paul G. Gardelphe wrote last week. The judge also set a hearing for Tuesday, though it was uncertain whether Jay-Z will be there or just his legal representatives.

The SEC explained Jay-Z, whose hits include “99 Issues” and “Empire Frame Of Mind,” as an “essential witness” who has actually “defied two lawful subpoenas,” cannot show up two times for set up testament.

The commission has looked for to depose Jay-Z as part of its probe into possible securities fraud in the reporting of financial outcomes by Iconix Brand Group, which purchased the rapper’s Rocawear apparel brand. The SEC said Jay-Z and Iconix continued some business collaborations after the sale, which the Rocawear-related assets are amongst the monetary results under examination.

In their submission, Jay-Z’s legal representatives called the SEC’s subpoena “unreasonable and, undoubtedly, oppressive,” saying he never ever had a role in Iconix’s financial reporting and hasn’t been revealed to have any unique and appropriate info.

They stated the SEC has released 9 subpoenas to Jay-Z, his coworkers and his affiliated businesses, and that nearly 11,000 pages of products have been submitted. The lawyers composed that the chief running officer of 2 of Jay-Z’s services has actually already affirmed for a complete day prior to the SEC.

They noted that the entertainer has an extensive service empire using countless individuals. His schedule, they said, is particularly chaotic now with a worldwide tour of 45 shows to begin June 6.

” The outcome imposes unreasonable burdens on Mr. Carter and raises severe concerns about whether this workout has gone beyond any investigative function and crossed over into a celeb hunt,” they composed.

GOP has actually plunged into insanity

Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018|2 a.m.

View more of the Sun’s opinion section

For the sake of argument, let’s take President Donald Trump and his Fox News cheerleaders at their word that they really believe that the memo Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., launched Friday exposes a severe assault on our liberties by the FBI and the Justice Department.

Nah. Simply kidding.

It’s simply not possible, on any level, to take seriously the histrionics from Trump and his true-believer allies over the Nunes memo– other than as proof of how far the GOP has plunged into cynicism and insanity.

A lot of law-and-order, war-on-terrorism, lock-’em-up Republicans suddenly seem like spokespersons for the American Civil Liberties Union, so severe is their concern that our government might in any method trespass upon sacred due process. Think of how such guardians of the Constitution would protest if, say, that self-same federal government were to hold suspects in detention for a years or more without charges or trials. Wait, my bad: I appear to remember Republicans applauding with gusto when Trump, in his State of the Union address, announced that the prison at Guantanamo Bay would stay open.

Nunes, chairman of your home Intelligence Committee, loaded a lot half-truth and distortion into 4 short pages that it’s difficult to know where to begin. His hope must have been that everyone would get lost in thick weeds of arcane detail, forgeting the huge photo. Which is not a picture at all.

The point of the memo is to recommend that in October 2016, the FBI and Justice Department– under Barack Obama– poorly gotten a secret warrant to conduct security on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. We are expected to think the warrant was based upon info in the “discredited” Christopher Steele file about Trump’s connections with Russia. We likewise are provided to understand that essential info was poorly kept from the judge: that Steele’s firm was hired by Democrats seeking dirt on Trump. Nunes suggests, but does not quite state, that without the dossier, which was misrepresented by prosecutors, there would be no Russia investigation.

Ta-da! “This memo absolutely vindicates ‘Trump’ in probe,” the president desperately declared in a tweet.

Stop laughing, readers.

The problem with Trump’s self-exoneration, obviously, is that whatever the memo attempts to make us believe is incorrect. The dossier was not the only details the court counted on to authorize the warrant. Steele is a highly regarded previous British intelligence agent, and some of the dossier’s findings, however by no means all, seem accurate. The judge wasn’t told that the dossier was funded by the Democrats, merely a partisan “political entity,” however the products provided by the FBI made it obvious it was an entity opposed to Trump. The memo itself acknowledges– quietly– that the entire probe began with George Papadopoulos, another project adviser, months prior to Page even entered into the image.

Break this carefully to Sean Hannity, who may blow his last staying gasket: Even if the file had actually never ever been written, Trump and his campaign would still be under examination.

If you do not think me, take it from Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., whose partisan qualifications are unimpeachable– he led the Benghazi inquisition– and who was dispatched by Nunes to examine all the classified intelligence utilized to acquire the Page warrant.

“There is a Russia examination without a dossier,” he said Sunday. “The dossier has absolutely nothing to do with the conference at Trump Tower. The dossier has nothing to do with an email sent out by Cambridge Analytica. The dossier actually has nothing to do with George Papadopoulos’ meeting in Great Britain. It also doesn’t have anything to do with blockage of justice.”

Gowdy announced recently that he would not run for re-election this fall. I wonder which comes first for Republicans nowadays: The choice to retire? Or the pangs of honesty, duty and– one hopes– regret?

Three other Republican members of the Intelligence Committee– Chris Stewart of Utah, Will Hurd of Texas and Brad Wenstrup of Ohio– signed up with Gowdy on the rounds of the Sunday shows to deliver what seemed like a collaborated message: Obviously the memo is an awfully major thing, however it does not undercut unique counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

It sounded like a cautioning to Trump, who may be tempted to use the memo as a pretense to rid himself of the frustrating Mueller. This isn’t the way Trump’s fawning courtiers on “Fox & & Pals” told him this memo gambit was going to work out. The whole Russia thing was expected to be over.

Perhaps he ought to change the channel every once in a while.

The Fall of Atlantis

An artifact of Las Vegas’ 1990s “hello, let’s develop amusement park on the Strip!” heyday, the Fall of Atlantis is 2 attractions in one: A 50,000-gallon aquarium bristling with colorful fish, and the Disneyland-like animatronic program that rises out of it.

Super fan has actually been to every Super Bowl; '' 18 may be his last

Image

Robert F. Bukaty/ AP In this Thursday, Jan. 25, 2018 photo Donald Crisman poses with memorabilia from the 51 Super Bowls he has attended so far, at his home in Kennebunk, Maine. Crisman been to every Super Bowl and plans to attend this year’s game in between New England and Philadelphia in Minneapolis.

Friday, Feb. 2, 2018|1 a.m.

PORTLAND, Maine– Donald Crisman has more than a half-century of Super Bowl memories behind him, from taking a 24-hour train trip to Super Bowl II to seeing his cherished New England Patriots win in overtime last year. However he states Sunday’s matchup in between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Patriots simply may be his last big video game.

The 81-year-old citizen of Kennebunk, Maine, a member of the ever-shrinking “Never ever Miss a Super Bowl Club,” has been to every season ending given that the video game’s beginning in 1967. He has actually purchased his own ticket every year other than one.

Crisman was included in a 2010 Visa commercial along with three pals who also had actually participated in every Super Bowl. He is attending this year’s game with a heavy heart because one of the pals, Larry Jacobson, of San Francisco, passed away last fall. Crisman stated going to the game without Larry would be various, and he might not have gone this year if it did not carry the chance of another Patriots win.

He shared some of his preferred memories with The Associated Press.

___

LAST TIME IN MINNEAPOLIS

Crisman chooses the warmer venues for the Super Bowl. However he has fond memories of the last Super Bowl in Minneapolis– in 1992 at the now-gone Metrodome.

He has a hat from the game bearing the Super Bowl XXVI logo design that was signed by Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs, quarterback Mark Rypien and pass receiver Gary Clark. He is bringing it with him to this year’s game at U.S. Bank Arena to “reveal and tell it.”

___

THE SUPER BOWL THAT NEARLY WASN’T

Crisman’s trip to the 2nd Super Bowl in 1968 was an odyssey. He had made plans to take a personal airplane to the video game in Miami but an ice storm made it impossible to fly.

Crisman was undaunted and handled to find a train journey that took a complete 24 Hr to get to Miami. “I can’t believe the number of times that train stopped,” he said. “It was painful to say the least.”

___

FAVORITE LOCATIONS

The Miami area, which is slated to set a record by hosting its 11th Super Bowl in 2020, is Crisman’s preferred place to see the video game. He also is a fan of San Diego, which has hosted 3 times.

Crisman is “not a fan of these winter bowls,” which take place periodically at indoor stadiums in Indianapolis, Detroit and Minneapolis. But when inquired about his worst experience at a Super Bowl place, he can not believe of one.

LEADING PLAYS

The Rhode Island native has been a Patriots fan because the team’s inception in 1960, so his favorite Super Bowl play of perpetuity is fittingly James White’s overtime, game-winning touchdown in 2015. However previous to that, he was the topic of endless teasing since his favorite plays were a set of basket.

Particularly, they were the field goals that won Super Bowls for the Patriots in 2002 and 2004.

” I have actually been made fun of and kind of ridiculed. ‘You can’t have a basket be your favorite play’,” he stated. “Well, I do.”

___

WILL HE KEEP GOING?

Crisman’s crew at the Super Bowl was long comprised of himself, Jacobson and two other friends, Pittsburgh Steelers fan Tom Henschel and Green Bay Packers fan Bob Cook, who likewise had gone to every video game. But the group has actually dwindled down to just himself and Henschel this year, as Cook died in 2011. He likewise is inviting Jacobson’s daughter Heather this year, and anticipates to shed a couple of tears when she sits in what would have been her father’s seat.

His son, Don Jr., called his father “the most consistent force in football.” He said it will be different when his father no longer goes to the big game. However the older Crisman said that day might be coming quickly.

” I’m thinking of it,” he stated. “But this year, I’m taking the Patriots.”

The federal government has actually officially shut down

WASHINGTON (AP)– The federal government closed down at the stroke of midnight Friday, stopping all but the most vital operations and spoiling the 1 year anniversary of President Donald Trump’s inauguration in a striking screen of Washington dysfunction.

Last-minute negotiations fallen apart as Senate Democrats obstructed a four-week stopgap extension in a late-night vote, triggering the 4th government shutdown in a quarter century. The slide towards closure did not have for high drama: The Senate vote was all but predetermined, and considering that the shutdown started at the start of a weekend, a lot of the immediate effects will be muted for most Americans.

Still, it features no scarcity of shame for the president and political threat for both parties, as they bet that citizens will punish the other at the tally box in November.

Social Security and most other safeguard programs are untouched by the lapse in federal spending authority. Crucial government functions will continue, with uniformed service members, health inspectors and law enforcement officers set to work without pay. However if no offer is brokered before Monday, hundreds of countless federal workers will be furloughed.

After hours of closed-door meetings and telephone call, the Senate arranged its late-night vote on a House-passed strategy. It gained 50 votes to proceed to 48 against, but 60 were had to break a Democratic filibuster. A handful of red-state Democrats crossing the aisle to support the procedure, rather than take the politically-risky vote. Four Republicans voted in opposition.

In an unusual move, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell permitted the roll call to surpass 90 minutes– rather of the typical 20 or two– apparently accommodating the many conversations among leaders and other legislators. Still as midnight passed and the calendar turned, there was no apparent off-ramp to the political stalemate. Each party expressed resolve in its position– and confidence that the other would suffer the wrath of citizens.

Even prior to the vote, Trump was pessimistic, tweeting, “Not looking excellent” and blaming the Democrats who he stated really wanted the shutdown “to help decrease the success” of the tax expense he and fellow Republicans pushed through last month.

Democrats balked on the step in an effort to pressure on the White Home to cut an offer to secure “dreamer” immigrants– who were brought to the nation as kids and are now here unlawfully– prior to their legal security runs out in March.

The president enjoyed the results from the White House home, calling up allies and affirming his belief that Democrats would answer for the shutdown, stated a person knowledgeable about his discussions however not licensed to discuss them publicly.

Predictably, both celebrations moved quickly to blame one another. Democrats laid fault with Republicans, who manage both chambers of Congress and the White House and have actually struggled with structure internal agreement. Republican politicians declared Democrats responsible, after they decreased to supply the votes needed to get rid of a filibuster in the Senate over their desire to force the passage of legislation to protect some 700,000 younger immigrants from deportation.

Republicans branded the conflict a “Schumer shutdown” and argued that Democrats were hurting fellow Americans to protect “unlawful immigrants.”

Trump had brought Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer to the White House Friday afternoon in hopes of cutting an offer. However the 2 New Yorkers, who pride themselves on their working out abilities, emerged without an arrangement, and Republicans and Democrats in Congress continued to pass off duty.

“We made some progress, but we still have a good number of disputes,” Schumer said upon returning to Capitol Hill. Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told CNN that “Not much has actually changed” over the course of the day, however he predicted a deal would be reached by Monday, when most government offices are to resume after the weekend.

Democrats in the Senate had served notification they would filibuster the government-wide funding costs that cleared your house Thursday evening. They were seeking an even much shorter extension that they believe would keep the pressure on the White Home to cut an offer to safeguard the “dreamer” immigrants.

Trump initially explained his conversation with Schumer as an “outstanding preliminary meeting,” tweeting that legislators were “making progress – 4 week extension would be best!” However that optimism faded as the night used on.

Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of Texas stated Trump informed Schumer to work things out with McConnell and Home Speaker Paul Ryan. McConnell did not attend the conference because he was not welcomed, a Senate GOP aide stated.

Trump had been an unreliable arbitrator in the weeks leading up to the face-off. Previously today he tweeted opposition to the four-week plan, forcing the White House to later affirm his support. He revealed openness to extending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, only to reject a bipartisan proposition. His disparaging remarks about African and Haitian immigrants recently helped thwart even more settlements.

Trump had actually been set to leave Friday afternoon to attend a fundraiser at his Palm Beach, Florida, estate marking the 1 year anniversary of his inauguration but delayed his travel.

“I think the president’s been extremely clear: he’s not leaving until this is finished,” Mulvaney told reporters.

As word of the Schumer conference spread, the White Home hastened to reassure Republican congressional leaders that Trump would not make any major policy concessions, stated a person familiar with the discussions however not licensed to be priced estimate by name.

On Capitol Hill, McConnell said Americans in your home would be seeing to see “which senators make the patriotic decision” and which “vote to shove aside veterans, military households and vulnerable children to hold the whole country captive … until we pass an immigration bill.”

Throughout the Capitol, your home backed away from a plan to adjourn for a one-week recess, suggesting the GOP-controlled chamber might await a last-minute compromise that would require a brand-new vote. However it wasn’t coming Friday night.

“We cannot keep kicking the can down the road,” said Schumer, insisting on more urgency in talks on migration. “In another month, we’ll be right back here, at this moment, with the same web of problems at our feet, in no better position to solve them.”

The four-week procedure would have been the 4th stopgap spending expense considering that the existing spending plan year started in October. A pile of unfinished Capitol Hill service has been on hold, first as Republicans settled last fall’s tax bill and now as Democrats insist on development on migration. Talks on a budget deal to ease tight spending limits on both the Pentagon and domestic agencies are on hold, as is progress on a big $80 billion-plus disaster help costs.

Before Thursday night’s House approval, GOP leaders sweetened the stopgap procedure with legislation to extend for six years a popular healthcare program for children from low-income families and two-year hold-ups in undesirable “Obamacare” taxes on medical devices and generous employer-provided health plans.

A shutdown would be the first considering that 2013, when tea party Republican politicians– in a technique not unlike the one Schumer is using now– sought to utilize a must-pass funding expense to attempt to force then-President Barack Obama to delay application of his marquee healthcare law. At the time, Trump informed Fox & & Pals that the ultimate blame for a shutdown lies at the top. “I truly think the pressure is on the president,” he stated.

Arguing that Trump’s predecessors “weaponized” that shutdown, Mulvaney stated Friday the spending plan workplace would direct companies to work to reduce the impact this time. That position is a striking role-reversal for the conservative former congressman, who was among the designers of the 2013 shutdown over the Affordable Care Act.

With no agreement by midnight, the federal government would start right away locking its doors. The impact would initially be spotty– because the majority of companies would be closed till Monday– but each celebration would be betting the public would blame the other.

In the event of a shutdown, food assessments, federal police, airport security checks, and other crucial services would continue, as would Social Security, other federal advantage programs and military operations.

The Strip has actually welcomed the Backstreet Boys with open arms

The Backstreet Boys took the Strip by storm when they introduced their Larger Than Life resident show at the Axis in March, and Nick Carter has been accepting his Las Vegas life ever since. He transferred to the Southern Highlands community about 7 months back.

What have you learnt more about Las Vegas given that moving here? I’ve been touring given that I was 12 years of ages, so I have actually constantly delighted in living in different locations and making discoveries, and here I have actually discovered individuals are truly good. Coming from LA where everyone seems aggravated all the time, individuals here are really chill, and it produces a calm environment. And [they’re] very durable … the Vegas Strong thing really applies.

How do you assess the success of the program at Planet Hollywood up until now? We’re constantly trying to make it much better, discovering methods to maybe reorganize a few of the material, make it more seamless and as entertaining as it can potentially be. We’re always trying to outshine ourselves. However I think from the outside, individuals are truly pleased and maybe even kind of blown away. We’re really grateful, and it’s severe company to us. For the previous 2 weeks I’ve been in the fitness center training and preparing. The show is intense, and there’s so much to it, and we need to look good and feel great to have the strength and energy to sustain it. And in Las Vegas, it is necessary that people leave pleased and [feel] their money was well invested.

How is the performance experience various from being on trip? There was a time in the late ’90s when I think we were actually on top of our video game– we had the albums out and all the hit singles and were able to place on an amazing show with all the bells and whistles and take it on the roadway. Now things have altered in the marketplace, and it’s more difficult to do that. Vegas uses us the possibility to bring that back, for us and our fans to relive that thing that we are best at doing. We wish to be that peak Backstreet Boys reveal from that time, which is exactly what everyone remembers. Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life at the Axis at Planet Hollywood, November 10-18.
