Donald Trump drew more than 15,000 supporters to a rally in Tampa, Fla., on Monday, and both presidential candidates will campaign in the Sunshine State today -- a must-win state for Trump, but one where Hillary Clinton has both a narrow polling edge and a potential demographic advantage. Increasing numbers of Puerto Ricans have made the state somewhat friendlier to Democrats in recent years, experts say.
The Donald Trump campaign Monday launched a nightly webcast, live from the war room in Trump Tower, perhaps presaging the widely anticipated postelection launch of a Trump new media brand. "It would be malpractice on our part if we didn't utilize these massive online platforms that he has," says co-host and campaign adviser Cliff Sims.
When a nonprofit is faced with a crisis, it's important to assemble the entire board, brief everyone on the problem and have a meaningful conversation before making decisions.
The nonprofit industry, bolstered by health care and social service organizations, is the only US sector to have seen steady growth since 2000, according to The Urban Institute. Nonprofit wages increased 49% between 2003 and 2013, growing from $425 billion to $634 billion.
Effective nonprofit governance requires a balance of power between board members and senior staff, writes Robin Reiter-Faragalli, former interim president of The Beacon Council. "The success of an organization, whether for-profit or not-for-profit, rests on the balance of good governance and stewardship coupled with strong leadership," she writes.
Billionaire mega-donors have spent $88 million on the 2016 presidential race, with $70 million of that going to Hillary Clinton, according to Federal Election Commission filings. In total, Clinton has raised $1.14 billion, with more than a fifth of that amount coming from just 100 wealthy individuals and labor unions.
Donald Trump is 12 points down in the first high-quality poll since the third presidential debate, leaving Republicans fearing weak voter turnout that could affect down-ballot races. "The worst-case scenario is firmly on the table for Trump and Republican down-ballot candidates," writes Nate Silver.
Hillary Clinton has opened a substantial lead in recent polling, and with a comfortable victory in the presidential race seemingly within her reach, has shifted her focus to bolstering early turnout and supporting down-ballot Democrats. Some Republican candidates are using the prospect of a Clinton victory in their campaign ads, in the hope that voters will see them as a potential counterbalance to a Clinton administration.
The Declaration of Independence was "defaced" by its custodians during the 20th century, with restorers overwriting famous signatures and leaving a handprint on one corner of the document, experts say. "A dirty hand. An inky hand. Why would you do that?" asks Mary Lynn Ritzenthaler, the National Archives' retired chief of conservation.
The United Nations secretary-general and the General Assembly must prioritize efforts to outlaw tax havens, says UN expert on the promotion of a democratic and equitable international order Alfred De Zayas. As much as $32 trillion in holdings aren't being taxed, and governments are losing $3 trillion annually in tax revenues, he says.
