From the day she was born, British singer Susan Boyle’s life was anything but ordinary. As a child, she was bullied and told she had a learning disability. As she grew up, she realized that wasn’t the case. In fact, she had a high IQ and a natural talent for singing that she was itching to hone. It seemed as though the world was against her, causing road blocks on her path to fame and success. But Boyle persisted in chasing her dreams, and the incredible achievements she has to her name is awe-inspiring. Here’s the story of Susan Boyle.
The stock market has crashed several times throughout history, including the infamous Crash of 1929, Black Monday in 1987, and the financial crisis of 2008. While the exact cause of each of these crashes can get a bit complicated, stock market crashes are generally caused by some combination of speculation, leverage, and several other key factors.
Here's a rundown of six different stock market crash catalysts that could contribute to the next plunge in the market.

Many market crashes can be blamed on rampant speculation. The Crash of 1929 was a speculative bubble in stocks in general. The crash in tech stocks in the early 2000s followed a period of irrational speculation in dot-com companies. And the crash of 2008 can be attributed to investor speculation in real estate (and banks enabling the practice).
The point is that when irrational euphoria about a certain asset class or industry exists, it's not uncommon for it to end very badly.
I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration
I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.
The Times today is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers. We invite you to submit a question about the essay or our vetting process here.
A former secretary of state, a former senator and two former presidents all eulogized the late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Saturday in a historic memorial service at Washington National Cathedral.
But the remembrance that will have the most resonance in today's political climate did not come from a politician. It came from the senator's daughter Meghan McCain.
Who do you think was considered the best president in American history? A team of experts was recently commissioned by C-SPAN to answer that question definitively and the results are fascinating. They ranked each president according to a number of different factors such as public persuasion, crisis leadership, international relations, and vision while in office. So which of the presidents since 1774 were the cream of the crop, the best of the best? We’ve compiled those presidents who made it into the top 40 right here. Whether you agree or disagree, read on to find out who made the cut!
So Donald Trump went to a NATO summit, insulted our allies, then made the absurd demand not just that they increase defense spending — which they should — but that they raise it to 4 percent of G.D.P., much higher than the bloated military spending in his own budget. He then claimed, falsely, to have won major concessions, and graciously declared that it is “presently unnecessary” to consider quitting the alliance.
Was there anything our allies could have done that would have mollified him? The answer, surely, is no. For Trump, disrupting NATO doesn’t seem to be a means to an end; it’s an end in itself.
Does all of this sound familiar? It’s basically the same as the story of the escalating trade war. While Trump rants about other countries’ unfair trade practices — a complaint that has some validity for China, although virtually none for Canada or the European Union — he hasn’t made any coherent demands. That is, he has given no indication what any of the countries hit by his tariffs could do to satisfy him, leaving them with no option except retaliation.
So he isn’t acting like someone threatening a trade war to win concessions; he’s acting like someone who just wants a trade war. Sure enough, he’s reportedly threatening to pull out of the World Trade Organization, the same way he’s suggesting that the U.S. might pull out of NATO.
Fall of the American Empire By Paul Krugman, The New York Times, 06/18/18
The U.S. government is, as a matter of policy, literally ripping children from the arms of their parents and putting them in fenced enclosures (which officials insist aren’t cages, oh no). The U.S. president is demanding that law enforcement stop investigating his associates and go after his political enemies instead. He has been insulting democratic allies while praising murderous dictators. And a global trade war seems increasingly likely.
What do these stories have in common? Obviously they’re all tied to the character of the man occupying the White House, surely the worst human being ever to hold his position. But there’s also a larger context, and it’s not just about Donald Trump. What we’re witnessing is a systematic rejection of longstanding American values — the values that actually made America great.
With college degrees becoming increasingly necessary in the workforce and the costs of brick and mortar schools rapidly rising, online degrees are becoming more and more of a viable and well-respected option. Learn why.
There once was a time where online universities were not a very realistic replacement for higher education degrees, but that time is not now. For multiple reasons, these online programs should be seriously considered by anyone who might not think collegiate programs were made for them, their schedules, or their wallet.
