What’s key here is Orient’s careful presenting of these ideas as questions. She stops short of diagnosing Clinton directly—she couldn’t, of course, without directly examining the candidate herself. But as a physician, Orient’s opinion still seems to carry weight.
Tesla will hold an event on Friday night to deliver its first 30 Model 3 sedans to customers. The 215-mile electric car is available for a starting price of $35,000, or $27,500 including the federal tax credit on battery-powered vehicles.

Many of the crafts I’ve designed have appeared in publications FamilyFun and Home Education Magazine, and can still be found on their website. Here are a few:
Imagine working in a place where your desktop computer restricts access. No personal e-mail. No Internet.
Sales in the first quarter will have a tough comparison to the year prior, Amazon’s Olsavsky said, when foreign exchange rates were more favorable and the Feb. 29 leap day gave shoppers an extra 24 hours to spend.
When American and British spies were infiltrating virtual-world games like Second Life and World of Warcraft in a bid to detect real-world terrorists, U.S. intelligence warned that jihadists might create an Osama bin Laden avatar that could “preach and issue new fatwas for hundreds of years to come,” according to a once-confidential report disclosed today.
I’ve been using an 802.11b wireless access point for about three years. I’ve never activated encryption. As the story points out, it’s a pain – and we have five different brands of clients connecting. I have, however, activated MAC filtering, which is not subject to any compatibility issues. WAP manufacturers could make it easier than it is, but it isn’t difficult now.
