How does Trump cheat? Let us count the ways: Trump doesn’t just cheat at golf. He cheats like a three-card Monte dealer. He throws it, boots it, and moves it. He lies about his lies. He fudges and foozles and fluffs. At Winged Foot where Trump is a member, the caddies got so used to seeing him kick his ball back onto the fairway they came up with a nickname for him: “Pele.” COMMANDER IN CHEAT: HOW GOLF EXPLAINS DONALD TRUMP Donald Trump, no big fan of Barack Obama, used to rant and rave about how much time the 44th US president spent golfing. Turns out Obama had nothing on Donald Trump. According to TrumpGolfCount.com, Trump has made 175 daytime visits to golf courses during his two-plus years as president, at an estimated cost to US taxpayers — including Secret Service and other travel expenses — of $99 million. That’s a lot of money to get in 18 holes regularly. Trump not only loves golfing, he loves to build golf courses and escape the … [Read more...] about Donald Trump’s Game of Holes

PETALING JAYA: E-hailing drivers have called on the government to reform the Public Service Vehicle (PSV) licence module and extend the deadline for them to obtain the licence. Grab Drivers Malaysia Association president Arif Asyraf Ali said the time allocated for the drivers to apply for their PSV licence was short as the application process was only introduced on April 1. “Many drivers found it difficult to pass the PSV test and the tests was conducted only in Bahasa Malaysia. “Only 10% of 200,000 e-hailing drivers have the PSV licence.

The idea of holding digital elections is picking up steam following reports that dozens of election workers died of reported extreme fatigue during and after organizing the nation’s first-ever concurrent elections, billed by many as “the world’s most complex”. While it is hard to determine if the April 17 general elections directly caused the deaths, a consensus has been reached that the current election system — in which five different paper-based elections are held on a single day — has to be changed. One of the proposed changes is for Indonesia to apply e-voting to make elections less complicated. The proposal, however, remains controversial, with lawmakers saying that even after so many election-related deaths, e-voting still seems like a distant dream. The controversy revolves around the question of whether Indonesia — an archipelago with a population of more than 250 million people — is ready for … [Read more...] about Can e-voting solve Indonesia’s election woes?
Nespresso Philippines has one message it wants to shout out loud, Aretha Franklin-style, to local coffee lovers: R-E-C-Y-C-L-E! Yes, recycling was the big push at a Nespresso event hosted by Amazing Race celebrity/World Wildlife Foundation ambassador/coffee lover Marc Nelson at Power Plant Mall. Now, the fact is, Nespresso users go through millions of aluminum capsules — those airtight pods that keep Nespresso coffee fresh and perfectly balanced with every cup — every single day worldwide. So wouldn’t it be great if all of those used capsules were returned to recycling centers? After all, the pods themselves are infinitely recyclable, and the used coffee grounds make great soil fertilizer for local farms. Nelson, along with Novateur Coffee Concepts managing director Patrick Pesengco, which launched Nespresso Philippines two years back, wants people to know there are now many options to recycle your capsules. Aluminum is infinitely recyclable. So why not recycle 100 … [Read more...] about Nespresso wants you to R-E-C-Y-C-L-E
