Target misses the mark, warns of weak sales ahead

Source: CNN

More bad news about the health of the U.S. consumer. Retail giant Target reported sales for the second quarter that fell more than 7% from a year ago -- and warned that another key measure of sales may drop in the third quarter and fourth quarter.
The second half of the year is usually great for big retailers like Target. Back-to-school shopping tends to boost sales in the late summer and consumers typically splurge on presents for the holidays during the fall.
But Target CEO Brian Cornell, who took over the company in 2014 following the a massive cyber security breach that compromised tens of millions of customers' credit and debit card accounts, warned that this is now a "difficult retail environment."
Cornell added during a conference call with analysts on Wednesday that the company's grocery sales continue to be disappointing as well.
As a result, Target said same-store sales, which measures sales at retailers open at least a year, could fall as much as 2% in the third and fourth quarters. Target also slashed its earnings outlook for the third quarter.

Georgia officer shot dead while responding to call

Source: CNN

State police have named a suspect -- 24-year-old Royheem Deeds -- in the shooting death of a central Georgia police officer. They said Deeds is considered armed and dangerous.

About 9:30 p.m. Saturday, officer Tim Smith responded to a Dodge County 911 call reporting a suspicious person at an intersection in Eastman, a town of 5,000 about an hour's drive southeast of Macon.
"Officer Smith arrived in the area and encountered an individual. Officer Smith exited his patrol car to investigate and was shot by the individual. Officer Smith returned gunfire and the individual fled the scene," a Georgia Bureau of Investigation news release said.
Smith had been with Eastman police for more than five years, the GBI said.

Terrible all over the place.

I was kicked out of a group by a person I have on IGNORE because the person has stalked me for years

How on Earth can this individual block me from a group if I have them on ignore. Are they hacking my account? I am getting worried about my safety from this person seriously. If you want the name, I can give it to you privately. Please help. I can't take the abuse.

Somebody on my ignore list just kicked me out of a group

How is that legal?

A pretty good story.

Schumer in 2007: Don't confirm any Bush Supreme Court nominee

Sen. Chuck Schumer said in July 2007 that no George W. Bush nominee to the Supreme Court should be approved, except in extraordinary circumstances, 19 months before a new president was set to be inaugurated.

"We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court, except in extraordinary circumstances," Schumer, a New York Democrat, said in prepared remarks to the American Constitution Society, a liberal legal organization.

Schumer cited ideological reasons for the delay.

"They must prove by actions, not words, that they are in the mainstream rather than we have to prove that they are not," Schumer said at the time.


Why oh why did he give Republicans any reason to stop Supreme Court Nominations? This is not good.

I am humbled by the heart

Thank you DUers for your constant thoughtfulness. Also for the incredible education I have received from all of you. You guys are simply the best.


TV Ratings Saturday: Republican Presidential debate wins the night 11.63 million


How on Earth can they get so many on a Saturday night when we can't get that many on a Thursday night the highest viewing TV day of the week. We got 3.3 million. This is so unfair. Even on a freaking Saturday night they get 11 million.

Something is seriously wrong.

I hate this.

Members of the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment, also known as "The Old Guard" are staying with the Tomb of the Unknown Solider at Arlington National Cemetery despite blizzard conditions slamming the area.

"The Tomb Guards maintain a constant vigil at the Tomb no matter the weather conditions," states the group's Facebook page.

Major cities, roadways and airports along the East Coast were largely immobilized Saturday by a massive and deadly snowstorm that showed no signs of letting up.

Public transportation in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., was shut down as local officials called on residents to hunker down and stay off the streets for a second day.

As of early Saturday, more than 60 million people were under blizzard, winter storm or freezing rain warnings. The storm's effects stretched from Georgia to Massachusetts, according to Weather.com.

Despite the blizzard conditions, the guards remained in place. The images that they have shared are a stirring depiction of how dedicated our nation's soldiers are.
