The American Luxury department store chain was founded in 1858 by Rowland Hussey Macy. It became a division of the Cincinnati-based Federated Department Stores in 1994 renamed Macy's in 2007, as a Bloomingdale affiliate.

A Royal Flush

To put this in perspective, for poker players the probability of getting a royal flush in poker is at 1 in 649,740, and the probability of an amateur hitting a hole-in-one in golf is hundreds of times as great, at 1 in 12,000.

Not four of a kind, but three this time. Three family members deciding to step away from the British Crown today and be part-time Royals. The UK is not OK -Liz is pissed.

The naked untruth is that too many players are resorting to fake photoshopped images and edited videos that can be deceiving and appear real to the naked eye.

As the 2020 presidential election approaches, some politicians and other candidates are being singled out for vile abuses. The spread of misinformation and bad-faith conjecture in our “post-truth” world has inflamed tensions and inspired violence.

Three #USA presidents have considered an operation to kill #Suleimani, but only one of them came up with a different answer under circumstances unlike those experienced by his two predecessors.

Who is the only one that keeps on bowing down to #Russia and #Putin no matter what our intelligence community tells him?

There comes a time for everyone to step down and call it a day, but why do some folks always let their inflated egos get in their way?

Most decent players have an understanding of when to fold. The decision made playing cards to preflop, or thinking before the flop by deciding whether to fold, call or raise based on your position is always the crucial one.

Brumous Days

As I woke up in NYC Today, I looked out the window and could taste the petrichor in the air as the rain blessed the cracked lips of the earth. The morning air hit me, brumous and chilly, as I opened the building's front door and waved down the mist.

If you also see grey skies, It means Winter is upon us and for many, it is cold, and there’s nothing to beware, we've had lots of precipitation in the air..

It could be the most significant event in the Middle East since the USA invaded Iraq. POTUS played his most desperate card in a bid to redefine himself as a wartime president after saying he wanted peace.

Why have there been no explanations from POTUS for escalating tensions for apparently vague reasons? Has America had enough? The assassination of global spymaster Soleimani, the second in command Iranian official.
