Национальное бюро экономических исследований США опубликовало доклад, согласно которому каждый промышленный робот, введенный в эксплуатацию с 1990 по 2007 год, стал в среднем причиной сокращения 6,2 рабочих мест.Авторы доклада, экономисты Дэрон Акемоглу из МТИ и Паскаль Рестрепо из Бостонского университета, обнаружили также, что заработная плата рабочих в США понемногу снижалась из-за внедрения роботов в производство. Как только на заводе появлялся хотя бы один робот, фонд оплаты труда падал на 0,25-0,5% на каждую 1000 сотрудников, сообщает Recode.За рассмотренный период (за 17 лет) роботы отняли 670 тысяч рабочих мест на производстве в Штатах, и в ближайшие годы, вместе с ростом автоматизации, это число возрастет, говорится в исследовании. Цифры, приведенные в докладе, могут показаться скромными, однако, стоит принять во внимание, что авторы использовали узкое определение робота, заимствованное у Международной федерации робототехники: робот - это автоматически управляемая, перепрограммируемая и многофункциональная машина. Это означает, что алгоритмы для автоматизации торговли, финансовой сферы или делопроизводства, а также конвейеры или роботы-баристы в сферу внимания исследователей не попали.Что касается перспектив, то авторы доклада согласны с оценкой экспертов из Boston Consulting Group - число промышленных роботов к 2025 году увеличится в 4 раза. Ну или по меньшей мере в 3, по более скромному сценарию.Если данные доклада правильно отражают тенденцию, то чем больше роботов появится на производствах, тем больше сотрудников останется без работы. Больше людей лишится средств к существованию, а это значит, что потребуются программы по переквалификации, субсидии или введение базового основного дохода. По мнению экспертов Университета Болл (США), внедрение новых технологий действительно может вызывать краткосрочную потерю работы, однако, массовой безработицы роботы не вызовут, потому что откроются новые возможности. Кроме того, рост производительности позволит направить средства на переобучение безработных.(https://hightech.fm/2017/...)

Правительство взяло курс на перевод экономики от старой модели роста – ориентированной на производство и экспорт, на новую модель — ориентированную на развитие сектора услуг, в частности, таких как медицина и IT-технологии. Однако, в итоге это приведет к сокращению избыточных мощностей в области угольной и сталелитейной промышленности, необходимости провести переобучение миллионов рабочих – а это уже, в свою очередь, может вызвать нешуточные социальные волнения

There is no shortage of advice for how to navigate power dynamics within organizations — from managing toxic or exceptionally gifted subordinates to dealing with unpredictable and narcissistic bosses. Researchers have devoted entire careers to systematically cataloging the many ways in which those who have power differ from those who lack power with respect to their motivations, behaviors, biases, etc. (a sampling of these findings can be found here, here, here, and here). The problem is that most of these recommendations tend to focus on the experience of leading or following in isolation, while neglecting the unique challenges inherent in having to do both. Despite our fascination with the extreme ends of the power distribution, the reality is that most employees possess a middling amount of power and must repeatedly alternate between interacting with higher and lower power colleagues. This experience is particularly prominent among middle managers, a group who are defined by their intermediate power levels within an organization. In a forthcoming paper in the Academy of Management Review, we present a theory of power that moves beyond a static comparison of high and low power actors to consider the full spectrum of organizational power dynamics. From a research perspective, our paper draws from and integrates findings from neuropsychology and the social hierarchy literature to make predictions about the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral effects of power. It updates and extends past academic work, which has been fixated on theorizing and testing the effects of either having or lacking power in isolation. In other words, our framework has something to say not only about the extreme power states experienced by your company’s CEO or new cohort of interns, but also the more complicated relationship to power that characterizes day-to-day life for many middle managers. Middle managers have a complicated relationship with power because power is activated and experienced in the context of interpersonal relationships. When interacting with our superiors, we naturally adopt a more deferential low-power behavioral style. When interacting with subordinates, on the other hand, we adopt a more assertive high-power behavioral style. Failure to conform to these role-based expectations can lead to social conflicts and confusion, so people are very good at learning how to play the part that is expected of them. Middle managers, however, are expected to play very different roles when moving from one interaction to the next, alternating between relatively high and relatively low power interaction styles. By virtue of their structural positions, they are simultaneously the “victims and the carriers of change” within an organization, receiving strategy prescriptions from their bosses above and having to implement those strategies with the people who work beneath them. As a result, middle managers often find themselves stuck in between various stakeholder groups, which can produce “relentless and conflicting demands.” According to Arizona State’s Blake Ashforth and colleagues, these types of micro role transitions in the workplace can produce exactly the type of role conflict that we propose middle managers are disproportionately likely to experience. In many cases, the norms and expectations associated with being a leader (e.g., assertiveness) are incompatible with the norms and expectations associated with being a subordinate (e.g., deference). This becomes problematic when one is called upon to play both roles at work because humans are notoriously inefficient when it comes to task switching, as evidenced, for example, by research showing mood spillover effects from work to home and vice versa. Simply put, it is psychologically challenging to disengage from a task that requires one mindset and engage in another task that requires a very different mindset. This vertical code-switching, as we call it, can take a toll, according to a wide body of research. On the emotional side, conflicting roles lead to increased feelings of stress and anxiety, reflecting the tension between incompatible social expectations. Physically, the high stress levels that accompany such conflicts are risk factors for a large number of health problems, from hypertension to heart disease. As if that weren’t enough, conflicting roles can disrupt cognitive performance and the ability to focus on a task without getting distracted. In a large-scale epidemiological study involving survey responses from 21,859 full-time employees across a wide range of industries, for instance, researchers from Columbia University and the University of Toronto observed that employees in mid-level organizational positions had higher rates of depression and anxiety than employees who occupied positions nearer either end of the hierarchy, findings that can be added to the long list of reasons why middle managers are so unhappy. There are some ways to ease the burden however. Here are our recommendations: Simplify the reporting structure to reduce upward and downward interactions. This may include eliminating unnecessary meetings that force employees to interact across role boundaries, or structuring workflow to minimize frequent shifts in relative power. Conduct a network audit to determine how employees across role boundaries connect to each other in person, via email, etc., and what implications this network structure has for feelings of power. Help middle managers see their various role-based identities as integrated, as opposed to segmented, through effective onboarding and training. This may be achieved by directly tying the responsibilities of middle managers to the broader organizational mission, thus helping middle managers to re-frame their self-identity from “sometimes a supervisor and sometimes a subordinate” to “a middle manager who is important to this company.” Keep in mind that some middle managers are inherently comfortable switching between high and low-power mindsets, while others will need help to view the seemingly incompatible aspects of their jobs as parts of a coherent identity. Don’t micromanage your middle managers. This creates unnecessary role switching from their perspective. It is better to provide your strategic input to middle management and then allow them the freedom to implement those strategies with a high-power mindset. It may be especially challenging to negotiate vertical role transitions in hierarchical organizational cultures. Thus, embracing more egalitarian organizational cultures and structures may minimize these challenges, effectively reducing the behavioral discrepancies between high- and low-power roles. Try sticking to a script. The burden associated with vertical code-switching may be reduced when employees develop an effective role transition script, which is an established routine for moving from one role to another. With enough practice, middle managers can develop effective strategies for switching between high and low power roles without feeling the lingering effects of their previous interactions. Some people may believe that they will just be “passing through” middle management on their inevitable march to the executive suite. The reality, however, is that most companies need effective middle managers over the long haul. Google infamously tried to eliminate their engineering managers only to learn that managers mattered — a lot. Other researchers have similarly found that middle managers can make a big difference to organizational performance. Ethan Mollick at Wharton, for example, recently conducted a large-scale analysis of the computer game industry and determined that the behavior of middle managers accounted for 22.3% of the variance in revenue. The Boston Consulting Group reached a similar conclusion, calling middle managers a “neglected but critical group” after surveying thousands of employees about the drivers of success at their firms. All of this suggests that it is critical to understand the unique psychological pressures that are faced by middle managers, along with strategies for easing the burdens that come along with their structural positions.

From our Morning Money colleague Ben White: The February jobs number is out today. “It’s the first report that will cover employment gains made entirely during Donald Trump’s presidency. Trump is clearly gearing up for it with a tweet Wednesday celebrating the 298K ADP jobs number.”PALM BEACH POST FRONT PAGE: “Trump mansion sale spurs Russia intrigue: Oligarch paid $95M, but evidence lacking that he lived in or inspected site” A1 PDF http://bit.ly/2m79msT … Story http://bit.ly/2lKtO7m AT 1600 PENN -- PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP is meeting with House chairmen involved in repealing and replacing Obamacare. The participants: VP Mike Pence, Budget Chairman Diane Black (R-Tenn.), Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas), Energy and Commerce Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.), Education and Workforce Chairman Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) and Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.).-- BEHIND THE SCENES: In the House, practically no one knew what this meeting was about -- including people close to the participants, leading to a couple of head-scratching phone calls with us Thursday evening. The two main committees -- Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce -- have passed the legislation, so it’s a touch late for a strategy session. But a White House source said it’s a thank you to the chairmen that guided the repeal and replace process. They also want to draw attention to the fact that the bills sailed through committee unopposed by Republicans -- which the administration says has not gotten the attention it deserves. WHERE HEALTH CARE STANDS -- Top vote-counters in the House say they think the health-care replacement legislation will get through their chamber. It won’t be easy -- and it won’t be pretty -- but they believe they’ll squeeze it through. But there’s increasing skepticism that it can get through the Senate. During his newsy Playbook Interview Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) reminded us that the legislation will be subject to unlimited amendments when it hits the Senate as part of the reconciliation process, practically ensuring it will be changed. If this bill blows up, Trump has signaled he’ll blame Democrats, who are expected to stand in unified opposition to the legislation. But that might not work. Republicans say it’s on Trump to make this thing work. -- MAGGIE HABERMAN and ROBERT PEAR on A1 of the NYT: “After Halting Start, Trump Plunges Into Effort to Repeal Health Law”: “There are East Room meetings, evening dinners and sumptuous lunches — even a White House bowling soiree. Mr. Trump is deploying the salesman tactics he sharpened over several decades in New York real estate. His pitch: He is fully behind the bill to scotch President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement, but he is open to negotiations on the details. In so doing, Mr. Trump is plunging personally into his first major legislative fight, getting behind a bill that has been denounced by many health care providers and scorned by his base on the right. If it fails, Mr. Trump will find it difficult not to shoulder some of the blame.” http://nyti.ms/2msHPpm -- “Budget referee may call foul on Obamacare repeal,” by Rachana Pradhan: “The fate of Obamacare may lie in the hands of a number-crunching Republican appointee whose bottom line might single-handedly blow up the GOP quest to repeal and replace it. Congressional Budget Office Director Keith Hall was handpicked two years ago by top Republicans in Congress -- including now Health and Human Service Secretary Tom Price -- to lead a nonpartisan office that will soon release its estimate of how many Americans the Republican health care bill will cover and whether it shrinks or balloons the federal deficit. With the House repeal bill under attack by Republican moderates worrying about coverage and conservatives fuming about entitlements and spending, the CBO assessment will matter. It’s widely expected early next week.“Hall, in the post for two years, has already signaled that his office won't soft-pedal the coverage assessments. If a health plan doesn't have comprehensive benefits, it won't count as coverage. Fearing a bad CBO ‘score,’ Republicans facing backlash in their drive to gut Obamacare are turning the budget agency and its team of professional economic analysts into a punching bag as they try to discredit it.” http://politi.co/2nlDa6f We expect a CBO score by MondayTHE NEXT FIGHT -- “Conservatives want to blow up Senate rules to kill Obamacare,” by Elana Schor and Jen Haberkorn: “House Republican leaders narrowly tailored their Obamacare repeal bill to avoid violating Senate rules, but conservatives are pushing back with advice of their own: Tear up the rule-book. A growing number of conservative lawmakers on Thursday urged GOP leaders to push the limits of how much of the health law they can reshape under a powerful procedural maneuver known as budget reconciliation — and to overrule the Senate parliamentarian if she doesn't decide in their favor.“Such a gambit would require the unlikely buy-in of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), a noted institutionalist who earlier this year avoided talk of changing his chamber's rules to kill the ability to filibuster Supreme Court nominees. If the Senate changes precedent for what can be passed under reconciliation now, a future Senate — whether controlled by Republicans or Democrats — could enact a wide range of legislation with only a simple majority.” http://politi.co/2n6gYRjALWAYS BE SELLING -- “White House pushes party officials nationwide to mobilize on health overhaul,” by Alex Isenstadt: “Facing mounting roadblocks on Capitol Hill, the White House is pleading with political supporters across the nation to pressure congressional Republicans to support President Donald Trump's health care overhaul. During a national conference call Thursday evening, White House political director Bill Stepien told Trump backers and national Republican Party officials to pressure members of Congress to support key planks of the president’s agenda -- notably his plan to replace Obamacare. ‘To continue the progress that's being made -- specifically on the court, and specifically on Obamacare -- [Trump] really needs your help,’ Stepien said on the call, which lasted nearly 20 minutes. ‘We need to do this as a team.’” http://politi.co/2mq5lRXWHERE’S REX? -- “Mexican foreign secretary goes straight to the White House, skips usual channels,” by LA Times' Tracy Wilkinson: “Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray met [Thursday] at the White House with President Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner, along with National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and Gary Cohn, a top financial aide, the Mexican government announced. Striking in its absence from that announcement was any mention of a meeting with officials from the State Department … [W]hen asked whether any sessions were scheduled at the State Department, the spokesman, Mark Toner, said he didn’t know Videgaray was in town. … Later, however, Videgaray himself explained that he had spoken by telephone to Tillerson the night before to let him know he was arriving in Washington.” http://lat.ms/2n5wP2mHMM -- “Authorities looked into Manafort protégé: An associate of an ex-Trump campaign chairman is suspected of connections to Russian intelligence,” by Ken Vogel and David Stern: “U.S. and Ukrainian authorities have expressed interest in the activities of a Kiev-based operative with suspected ties to Russian intelligence who consulted regularly with Paul Manafort last year while Manafort was running Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. The operative, Konstantin Kilimnik, came under scrutiny from officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the State Department partly because of at least two trips he took to the U.S. during the presidential campaign ... Kilimnik, a joint Russian-Ukrainian citizen who trained in the Russian army as a linguist, told operatives in Kiev and Washington that he met with Manafort during an April trip to the United States. And, after a late summer trip to the U.S., Kilimnik suggested that he had played a role in gutting a proposed amendment to the Republican Party platform that would have staked out a more adversarial stance towards Russia, according to a Kiev operative.” http://politi.co/2m6r7IMCOMING ATTRACTIONS -- “Treasury calls on Congress to raise debt limit, begins steps to delay default,” by WaPo’s Damian Paletta: “Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday began taking “extraordinary measures” to delay the U.S. government from defaulting on its obligations, as he called on House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) to lift the debt ceiling ‘at its first opportunity.’“Mnuchin, in a letter to Ryan, said Treasury was now suspending the sale of certain state and local securities, a practice the federal government normally performs to assist with tax policies. Treasury will soon likely suspend payments to certain pension funds as it tries to delay, as long as possible, falling behind on other payments. Eventually, though, it will run out of options and not have enough money to pay its bills. ‘As I said in my confirmation hearing, honoring the full faith and credit of our outstanding debt is a critical commitment,’ Mnuchin wrote to Ryan. ‘I encourage Congress to raise the debt limit at the first opportunity so we can proceed with our joint priorities.’” http://wapo.st/2lKfBay … The letter http://bit.ly/2n6vAAc BORDER WARS -- “Number of immigrants caught at Mexican border plunges 40% under Trump,” by L.A. Times' Jenny Jarvie in Atlanta: “The number of immigrants caught by Border Patrol agents as they attempt to cross the Southwest border has plunged dramatically, dropping 40% since President Trump took office and signed sweeping executive orders to enforce immigration laws. About 840 people a day were caught trying to cross the border or deemed inadmissible after presenting themselves at a port of entry in February, down from about 1,370 a day in January, according to new figures released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.“Although there are often seasonal fluctuations -- fewer immigrants usually attempt to cross the border from Mexico into the U.S. in winter -- Border Patrol agents typically see a 10% to 20% surge of people making the journey in February. Already, Trump’s supporters and leading members of his administration are celebrating the new data as an early payoff of the new president’s strident stance on illegal immigration.” http://lat.ms/2nmbnCD MITCH MCCONNELL sat down with us for a live Playbook Interview Thursday, sponsored by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation. The Kentucky Republican made plenty of news on issues ranging from health care to politics. McConnell had some advice for his fellow Republicans as they begin the health-care debate. “When you have a president of a different party, you can freelance all you want to. You know, go have press conferences, you guys show up with a 10-point plan to do this or that,” McConnell said. “But now we have an actual chance to change the country. We have somebody who will sign legislation that we pass. We need to get into a governing mode and start thinking about actually achieving something rather than just kind of sparring.” McConnell also talked about his confidence that SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed by April 7. Other nuggets:-- TAX REFORM WON’T BE DONE BY AUGUST: “As you and I were discussing before we came in here, there are some constraints here … We have two reconciliations to do. We have to get the one we’re going to use for health care out of the way before we go to the second one. I share your view that finishing on tax reform will take longer. But we do have to finish the health care debate, up or down, win or lose, before we go to taxes.” Video http://politi.co/2mOzux1 -- MEXICO WON’T PAY FOR THE WALL: “Well, I’m in favor of border security. There are some places along the border where that’s probably not the best way to secure the border. But I think General Kelly knows what he’s doing. I think the president picked an outstanding person to be in charge of homeland security and my suspicion is we will take his advice.” WILL MEXICO PAY?: “Uh, no.” Video http://politi.co/2msHUJB -- MCCONNELL ON STEVE BANNON: “WE BEAT HIM EVERYWHERE”: When Bannon, now the White House chief strategist, ran Breitbart, he tried to take down Senate Republicans -- including McConnell.

On Memorial Day weekend, the Senior P.G.A. Championship will be held at the Trump National Golf Club in suburban Washington. In July, the company’s course in Bedminster, N.J., is hosting another major event, the United States Women’s Open. The company is also bidding to host the Scottish Open or a half-dozen other possible professional tournaments at courses it owns in spots around the world from Miami to Dubai. “‘The stars have all aligned,’ Eric Trump, who as executive vice president of the Trump Organization oversees all its golf properties, said on Thursday morning, while sipping an iced tea at the restaurant inside the Trump International Hotel before appearing at a promotional event for the Memorial Day tournament. ‘I think our brand is the hottest it has ever been.’ What he did not mention at the news conference, while the cameras were rolling, is the product placement of incalculable value that is helping boost the Trump Organization’s golf courses: his father.” http://nyti.ms/2lKpZ2l HEADLINE OF THE DAY -- TIMES OF ISRAEL: “Rejecting Purim spiel, Putin tells Netanyahu to stop dwelling on past”: “Russian President Vladimir Putin told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop living in the past Thursday, after the Israeli premier tried to tie tensions with Iran to an upcoming Jewish holiday about a thwarted genocide of Jews in ancient Persia. In a meeting with Putin in Moscow, Netanyahu said Persia had made ‘an attempt to destroy the Jewish people that did not succeed’ some 2,500 years ago, an event commemorated through the Jewish holiday of Purim, which Israel will celebrate starting Saturday night and lasting in some places until Monday.“‘Today there is an attempt by Persia’s heir, Iran, to destroy the state of the Jews,’ Netanyahu said. ‘They say this as clearly as possible and inscribe it on their ballistic missiles.’ Adopting a conciliatory tone, Putin said that the events described by Netanyahu had taken place in the fifth century B.C.’ ‘We now live in a different world.

The couple are Orthodox Jews who observe the Sabbath, which runs from sundown Friday until sundown on Saturday -- the time when Trump has been most likely to go off-leash….“‘I think it’s a very foolish assumption to say that in some way, people in the Trump administration wait until the Sabbath so they can make decisions that otherwise, other members of the Trump administration might weigh in on,’ said [Rabbi Haskel] Lookstein, rabbi emeritus at the Kehilath Jeshurun congregation on Manhattan’s Upper East Side [and who oversaw Ivanka Trump’s conversion to Judaism in 2009]. ‘I think it’s playing around with religious behavior,’ added Lookstein, who remains close enough to Kushner and Ivanka Trump that they invited him to deliver the invocation at the Republican National Convention last summer -- an opportunity he ultimately declined. ‘The way in which I believe Jared Kushner and Ivanka observe the Sabbath is they observe it together with their children,’ he said. ‘They’re disconnected—but anything could be discussed.’” http://politi.co/2mIm3yn NEW AXE PODCAST – David Axelrod interviewed SEN.

Mikolay, 37, worked for Palantir for four years as an ‘evangelist,’ according to his LinkedIn profile, meaning he met with government officials to sell Palantir’s software.” http://bzfd.it/2m9fXnBFORTUNE'S 100 BEST COMPANIES TO WORK FOR: Top 10: "Google, Wegmans Food Markets, Boston Consulting Group, Baird, Edward Jones, Genentech, Ultimate Software, Salesforce, Acuity and Quicken Loans."

Arnold Schwarzenegger -- the ‘Terminator’ action hero who made ‘I'll be back’ one of filmdom's most iconic phrases -- may be mulling a political comeback, according to several GOP political insiders in California. The prospect of Schwarzenegger’s return to elected politics in a 2018 U.S. Senate run -- possibly as an independent -- is generating increasing buzz in state Republican circles, fueled by the former governor’s seeming ability to get under the skin of President Donald Trump on social media. … His entry into the 2018 Senate race -- when Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein would be 85 years old and up for re-election -- ‘would give Arnold the stage to jam Trump for the next 16 months,’ according to one veteran GOP strategist who spoke on condition of anonymity.” http://politi.co/2ncX0RI-- “NC Senate leader Phil Berger changes news headlines on Facebook posts – violating the site’s policy,” by Raleigh News and Observer’s Colin Campbell: “Visitors to Senate leader Phil Berger’s official Facebook page might have thought this headline appeared in The News & Observer: ‘Has Roy Cooper flip-flopped on HB 2? Gov. Cooper now refusing to support men in women’s bathrooms.’ But that headline never appeared in the newspaper or on its website. The real headline on the news story: ‘In HB2 repeal effort, Gov. Cooper is silent on proposed nondiscrimination law.’ The person managing Berger’s page used a little-known Facebook tool to change the headline on the article being shared, making it appear that the headline was written by the news organization. A typical user of Facebook can’t make such a change, but a manager of a professional or group page can.” http://bit.ly/2m6ebTq-- “Hey Coastal Elites, Don’t Dis ‘Flyover Country – Fund It,” by Wired’s Issie Lapowsky: “Former AOL CEO Steve Case is bringing together Republicans and Democrats at a summit in DC at the end of the month — called ‘Rise of the Rest.’ ‘There’s a reason they feel left behind. They kind of have been left behind,’ Case says about Americans who aren't seeing the economic benefits of the digital revolution. ‘Some of the disruption funded in places like Silicon Valley is destroying jobs in other parts of the country.’” http://bit.ly/2n6019HPLAYBOOK’S SUBJECT LINE A YEAR AGO TODAY – “TRUMP: ‘At the right time, I will be so presidential that you’ll call me and you’ll say, “Donald, you have to stop that”’ http://politi.co/1TOpqPbNEW POLITICO PRO feature -- Our defense reporters track some of the most politically dynamic defense programs and policy fights in regularly updated briefings highlighting legislative action, budget documents and key influencers in government and the private sector in Defense Program Watch. http://politico.pro/2mpKAGf ...

The book has also been purchased for a mini-series on HBO, which turned ‘Game Change’ into an original movie, with Julianne Moore as Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska and Ed Harris as Senator John McCain. Like ‘Game Change,’ the new mini-series by HBO Films will be directed and executive produced by Jay Roach, and executive produced by Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman of Playtone Productions. “[Mark] Halperin, who has covered eight presidential campaigns, insisted there was plenty of fresh material. ‘Trump in particular, as much as he’s covered and has been covered, in some ways he’s an undercovered figure, in terms of Trump the man, and that’s one of the things we’re going to do with the book,’ he said. [John] Heilemann added, ‘We’ll be looking at all the big unanswered questions of the race, some of them are obvious, some of them are less obvious, but of course we’re interested in breaking news.’ The book is scheduled to be published in early 2018.” With a Q&A http://nyti.ms/2msUt7F -- MSNBC has a new “This is who we are” ad running.

More than 15,500 individual contributions have ranged from as little as $4 to, in one case, $1 million (from an anonymous donor).”SPORTS BLINK -- “NFL abuse of painkillers and other drugs described in court filings,” by WaPo’s Rick Maese: “National Football League teams violated federal laws governing prescription drugs, disregarded guidance from the Drug Enforcement Administration on how to store, track, transport and distribute controlled substances, and plied their players with powerful painkillers and anti-inflammatories each season, according to sealed court documents contained in a federal lawsuit filed by former players. The sealed material, which was reviewed by The Washington Post, provides a rare look into the league’s relationship with drugs and how team doctors manage the pain inherent in a bruising sport to keep players on the field.” http://wapo.st/2lKwgefSUNDAY SO FAR – NBC’s “Meet the Press”: HHS Secretary Tom Price ...

На закрытии торгов электронной биржи Kraken в четверг биткоин стоил 1268 долларов, а одна тройская унция золота - 1233 доллара.
