Republicans had been working under a budget maneuver that would allow them to pass a tax bill with a simple majority in the Senate - but only if it didn't add to long-term deficits.

Ubiquitous Lionel Messi scored a superb last-minute victor to put Barcelona top of the table at their great rivals' expense.

Canada's dairy sector is protected by high tariffs on imported products and controls on domestic production as a means of supporting prices that farmers receive.

United Kingdom stocks surged Monday, keying off a broad rally led by French equities, as centrist Emmanuel Macron's first-round win in France's presidential election eased worries that two euroskeptics would be in the final runoff. Seeking to exploit Macron's lack of experience in the area, she told reporters in her northern stronghold of Henin-Beaumont: "I'm on the ground to meet the French people to draw their attention to important subjects, including Islamist terrorism, on which Mr Macron ...
And any restrictions must make room for those rare situations when something goes dreadfully wrong later in a pregnancy. On Friday , Mr. Sanders relented. These comments landed right in the crosshairs of leftists' and feminists' deepest anxieties in President Donald Trump's America.

The Army's First Infantry "Tabak" Division (ID) reported that as of 11:30 a.m. on Monday, its troops, backed by tactical operations units of the Air Forces, were continuing the operation against an estimated 150 Maute Group bandits holed out at the Piagapo Complex in Lanao del Sur.

An eight-month long investigation showed that several of the men arrested in Spanish terror raids had relationships with some of the people who were arrested after the 2016 Brussels attack. Separately, police have also arrested four people in an anti-terror probe in the town of Trappes west of Paris, the prosecutors' office said.

Ramos's sending off - when it was 2-1 to Barcelona - should have killed the game. It's time to enjoy the best player in the world and of all time.

At least five deaths have been blamed on the strong-armed response to protests that were triggered by the government-stacked Supreme Court's decision three weeks ago to strip the opposition-controlled congress of its last remaining powers. But the throngs of protesters weren't well-payed USA plants but Venezuelan citizens braving tear gas to protest a government that has overseen hyperinflation, food and medicine scarcity, years of recession, continually delayed elections, alleged vice ...
The move appears to be a way of embracing a wider range of voters ahead of her runoff against Emmanuel Macron. A newly formed party defeating two major political parties in an election sounds almost impossible. His opposing candidate, Le Pen, also criticised Macron stating, "all French people saw that he had the feeling he'd already won". And she has no plausible major reservoir of votes to add to the 21.3 per cent she received in the first round of the ballot, although she is ...
