Since Colorado legalized marijuana, entrepreneurs have been busy coming up with creative ways to serve the pot-smoking-and-munching clientele. A special vending machine from Tranzbyte is all set to deliver treats made with marijuana, rather than the usual bags of chips and candy.

It wasn’t just young girls cherishing their success this year, it was an entire generation of soccer players and sports fans. One of the more lasting effects of this team may be its appeal across gender lines, seemingly obliterating whatever remained of the anachronistic tendency of boys and men to resist rooting for women’s teams. McConnell, who has represented Kentucky in the Senate for 34 years and, as of last June, is the longest-serving Republican leader in Senate history, is one of Washington’s most famously inexpressive creatures. “You’ve got to see the gears turning behind the eyes, because the mouth isn’t moving very much,” Ryan told me. Still, his statements about Trump during the 2016 campaign, as the future president gradually cowed into submission the party to which McConnell had dedicated his entire adult life, managed to simultaneously leave everything and nothing to the imagination. When McConnell endorsed Trump in May 2016, after the last of his plausible challengers collapsed, he did it with a terse written statement in which the gritting of teeth was practically audible: “I have committed to supporting the nominee chosen by Republican voters,” it read, “and Donald Trump, the presumptive nominee, is now on the verge of clinching that nomination.” Speaking to a reporter from USA Today later that month, the most enthusiastic vision McConnell would allow of a Trump presidency was that it “would be fine.”Delivered in 2-3 bussiness days

But just weeks later, after Amazon hinted that it might leave Seattle altogether, the Council voted overwhelmingly to reverse its decision.
SummerStage in Central Park will have a new feel this season. The league office, however, insists that inflating scores further was not the aim when it announced that existing rules would be enforced with greater frequency this season. The rules in question forbid players to “hold, push, charge into, impede the progress of an opponent,” or take any other measures that could be interpreted as causing the player guarded to be “rerouted.”Delivered in 2-3 bussiness days
Log InSilicon Valley’s rapid innovations have the power to shape ever larger parts of our lives, but the industry’s homogeneous culture often overlooks the interests of women and minorities. What can be done to ensure the future of tech is for all? And what does it look like when people on the inside start pushing back?
