    Venus out.

    Venus & Serena out.

    Murray bros out.

    Now joker is out.

    Bad, bad olympics.

      I’m disappointed in all of this. I think Venus’ illness affected their doubles game because Serena had to overcompensate and ended up making errors. I’m hoping Serena is well enough to be focused for her singles game going forward.

      And I feel bad that Joker is yet to win a tennis medal despite being the #1 seed in men’s tennis.

    Serious security flaws that could give attackers complete access to a phone’s data have been found in software used on tens of millions of Android devices.

    The bugs were uncovered by Checkpoint researchers looking at software running on chipsets made by US firm Qualcomm.

    Qualcomm processors are found in about 900 million Android phones, the company said.

    However, there is no evidence of the vulnerabilities currently being used in attacks by cyberthieves.

    “I’m pretty sure you will see these vulnerabilities being used in the next three to four months,” said Michael Shaulov, head of mobility product management at Checkpoint.

    “It’s always a race as to who finds the bug first, whether it’s the good guys or the bad.”

    If the votes are coming from the GOP side, please proceed, Little-known CIA Veteran!!!

    Evan McMullin will formally kick off his campaign and has already attracted fundraising from “key contributors” in the GOP. (Penn in Washington/Youtube)

    A little-known CIA veteran and policy wonk will launch a longshot third-party presidential bid Monday in yet another effort to galvanize disaffected Republicans turned off by GOP nominee Donald Trump.

    Evan McMullin, a former clandestine CIA operative and the current chief policy director for the House Republican conference, will launch a bid as an independent, fashioning himself as a conservative alternative to Trump.

    “In a year where Americans have lost faith in the candidates of both major parties, it’s time for a generation of new leadership to step up,” McMullin said in a statement provided to ABC News. “It’s never too late to do the right thing, and America deserves much better than either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton can offer us. I humbly offer myself as a leader who can give millions of disaffected Americans a conservative choice for President.”

      NCLB, it’s interesting how ‘Americans’ is another word for Republicans in their minds. Hillary Clinton is extremely popular among Democrats, who, the last I checked, were Americans.

    I thought the best to do for “the revolution” was to show up at the polls on November 8 and bring 10 friends to vote for HRC. IMHO

      Interesting I see this now. I just muted Thom Hartman as he was going on and on and on with a guest about the TPP. His typical. It’s awful, awful, awful. EVERY trade agreement since ???? has been strongly opposed by the Democrats, now they are all for this one blah, blah, blah. Please, PO, shut them up! Am so sick of these people and their TPP hate.

        August 8, 2016 at 3:02 pm

        I can’t tolerate Hartman anymore. He’s one of the far left that is wishing for collapse because progressive utopia will result (NOT!). In whose universe? “The Crash of 2008”, “The Crash of 2012”, “The Crash of 2016″……

        I categorically dismiss any alleged progressive who would wish misery on millions of people for their progressive purity. Shame on Thom.

        There was a segment in the Olympic biography narrative explaining Simone’s childhood and that her grandparents raised her and became her parents in her grandfather’s own words. The commentator obviously had not even seen their own bio.

      GA Allison.

      Don’t recall many tweets during Steve Jobs’ lifetime about his being adopted (more surfaced after his early 😦 death).

      Simone’s skill and perseverance, along with supportive parents (whether birth-parents or not) are why she is ranked as world’s number 1 gymnast.

      I know they didn’t tell the caller than……the caller probably does not believe it anyway. I heard on NPR over the weekend that the “real” unemployment figure is probably 10% people who want to work but stopped looking or part time workers looking for full time work. You notice the Media NEVER says that when there is a GOP President. They said the same thing with WJC was President and unemployment was around the same before he left office.
