Elizabeth Warren "troubled" by $400K Obama speech at upcoming Wall Street conference

Last Updated Apr 27, 2017 9:17 PM EDT Former President Obama is coming under fire from a member of his own party over an upcoming speech in September paid for by Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald LP. "I was troubled by that," Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, a fierce Wall Street critic, said on Thursday during in an interview with Sirius XM's "Alter Family Politics" program.   Mr. Obama will receive a speaking fee of $400,000 from Cantor Fitzgerald LP in return for being the keynote speaker at a health care conference run by the firm. In the interview, Warren decried money in politics as a "snake that slithers through Washington" and distinguished between campaign contributions, which are documented by the Federal Election Commission, compared to the kind of money that flows to think tanks and lobbyists. For his part, Obama was a critic of Wall Street excesses while in office....

How Your Masturbation Habits Are Ruining Your Sex Life

Attention all dudes: Your masturbation habits could be wreaking havoc on your sex life. Doctors say male fetuses get erections in the womb and even touch themselves from time to time. So you got an early start and now you can’t stop. Well, we’re not saying you have to—but you may want to reconsider exactly how you’re getting yourself off. Some masturbation routines that boys bring into their teens and 20s can ultimately lead to unrealistic expectations during partnered sex and, therefore, decreased satisfaction for both people involved. If you recognize any of these bad behaviors, we suggest you correct them stat. 1. You don’t switch it up. If you do some weird hand thing when you’re jacking off, you’re going to want her to replicate it exactly and you’ll likely be frustrated when she struggles to do just that. You’ve also become so meticulous that sex in real life becomes a timed science. She doesn’t necessarily want...

I wanted to share something I am dealing with on a daily basis as a #consultant

I wanted to share something I am dealing with on a daily basis as a #consultant
As I am finishing an #Environmental #report for an undisclosed #beach Location in the #Egyptian #RedSea . I wanted to share something I am dealing with on a daily basis as a #consultant; which is #infuriating and #depressing me beyond comprehension. Everything what is wrong with #oceanresources #management by the proud Egyptian #tourism #developers of The Red Sea summed up in 1 picture. I just cannot grasp that my fellow tourism #entrepreneurs here have not yet understood the value of The Red Sea and the need to do the right thing. #Stupidity is wanting to do stuff without proper knowledge, not take in a foreign knowledgeable consultant because of pride, and cutting costs. With the obvious long term result of footing a larger bill to clean up the mess, and a drop in visitors; last but not least an #environmentalimpact , which will take years to solve. Besides what is...

KCRW: You and your brothers are surfers as well as filmmakers. You could have made a surf film. Why go this route?
