  2. Life In A Gypsy Wagon

    Life In A Gypsy Wagon "When I build something, I build it as if it is meant for me and my family, as all the custom fluted trimwork and design choices express. I tried to stay true to classic vardo design, while putting my style and personality into it as well, and providing for other challanges such as reduced weight (1660lbs total, including trailer with 1650 lbs capacity) and increased insulation (R-13 in floor, 1/2" rigid foam everywhere else). The synthetic canvas top is waterproof and fire resistant. The construction is cedar and pine exterior (primer and three coats of high quality exterior paint), and all pine and plywood on the interior. The dutch door was custom built from two salvaged doors, and the windows are likewise salvaged." "I built this Roma (gypsy) caravan styled travel trailer by hand. When this one sells, I’ll build another, or maybe a camper van, a housebus, a housetruck, or a tiny house. Who knows? I love creating—bringing dreams to life. Buy our caravan and treat yourself to the ultimate glamping mobile!

  4. Illinois GOP Gov. Rauner in close primary race, Pritzker wins Democratic nomination Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner was locked in a tight Republican primary battle with an insurgent state legislator Tuesday evening, while businessman J.B. Pritzker was projected to cruise to victory in the Democratic contest. With 80 percent of precincts reporting, Rauner led state Rep. Jeanne Ives by 52 percent to 48 percent. Pritzker won 46 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary to best five other candidates, including State Sen. Daniel Biss (26 percent) and developer Chris Kennedy (24 percent), a son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. If Rauner holds off Ives in the primary, the ensuing general election campaign against Pritzker is expected to be the most expensive in U.S. history. Both men have already combined to spend more than $120 million out of their own pockets so far on the contest. Rauner, a former venture capitalist, took advantage of the 2014 GOP wave to pull off a surprising gubernatorial victory in a state otherwise dominated by Democrats. He promised to "shake up" Springfield with a pro-business agenda that included lowering property taxes and instituting term limits on officeholders. But his ongoing spat with powerful state House Speaker Michael Madigan and other legislative Democrats left the state without a budget for two years while billions of dollars of debt piled up. ... http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/03/20/illinois-gop-gov-rauner-in-close-primary-race-pritzker-wins-democratic-nomination.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+foxnews%2Fpolitics+(Internal+-+Politics+-+Text)

  7. Fully Equipped Prefab Shipping Container Tiny Home on Amazon | Small Home Design Ideas ------------------------------------ You Can Buy This Tiny Home on Amazon, and Just Wait Till You See the Inside In case you missed it, you can find pretty much anything your little heart desires on Amazon. Pickle-flavored potato chips? Yep, Amazon's got those. Date-night-approved dresses? It sells plenty of 'em. Chic workout clothes? Amazon has you covered. A heated toilet seat? Psh, obviously it offers one of those. A tiny house that can be delivered to your doorstep? Erm, yes — Amazon has that, too. Last year, we (and the rest of the world) were pretty darn floored to learn that Amazon was selling a teeny-tiny house for the price of $36,000. Of course, being fans of the small-space-living movement, we were curious to see if the online retailer sold any other modest dwellings similar to the one that initially went viral last year, and a quick Amazon search sure as heck didn't disappoint. We came across another adorable house that's surprisingly stylish and anything but cramped. ... https://www.popsugar.com/moms/Tiny-House-Wheels-Amazon-44540891

  9. USS Fitzgerald collision deaths ruled negligent homicide by Japanese coast guard Bridge officers on both ACX Crystal and Fitzgerald could face criminal charges in Japan. SEAN GALLAGHER - 3/20/2018, 4:40 PM While the US Navy has already taken administrative action regarding the collision of the USSFitzgerald, one of the members of the ship's crew now faces possible criminal charges in Japan as the result of a Japanese Coast Guard investigation of the incident. Stars & Stripes reported today that Japanese Coast Guard officials have recommended negligent homicide charges against both the Fitzgerald's Officer of the Deck (OOD) and the second officer of the container ship the Fitzgerald struck—the ACX Crystal. Japan Coast Guard spokesman Yoshihito Nakamura said that the official recommended charges were "Causing Death and Injury through Negligence in the Pursuit of Social Activities and Endangering Traffic through Negligence in the Pursuit of Social Activities." He said the charges had been recommended because both officers were responsible for the navigation of their ships at the time of the collision. While the ACX Crystal was operating in accordance with Preventing Collisions at Sea regulations—known to sailors as the "Rules of the Road"—the ACX Crystal's 2nd officer failed to take any actions to avoid the collision. ... https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2018/03/japan-may-seek-negligent-homicide-charges-in-uss-fitzgerald-collision-case/
  10. China's growing submarine force is 'armed to the teeth' — and the rest of the Pacific is racing to keep up Christopher Woody 2h REUTERS/China Daily Countries in East Asia, led by China, have been pursuing a military buildup for years. Submarines, flexible platforms with strategic uses, have been a particular focus. Uncertainty about the balance of power in the region has stoked countries' pursuit of military hardware. In October 2006, a Chinese Song-class diesel-electric submarine capable of carrying torpedoes and antiship missiles surfaced within firing range of the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk. "Some navy officers interpreted it as a 'Gotcha!' move," journalist Michael Fabey wrote in his 2018 book, "Crashback." It was "a warning from China that US carrier groups could no longer expect to operate with impunity." Almost exactly nine years later, China again demonstrated its growing naval prowess, when a Kilo-class diesel-electric attack sub shadowed the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan near southern Japan. One defense official told The Washington Free Beacon that the sub's appearance "set off alarm bells on the Reagan," though there was no sign of threatening behavior. ... http://www.businessinsider.com/china-growing-submarine-force-worrying-pacific-us-2018-3?utm_source=feedburner&amp%3Butm_medium=referral&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+businessinsider%2Ftravel+(Business+Insider)

  12. Melania Trump to host cyberbullying, Internet safety event Darlene Superville, Associated PressPublished 2:54 a.m. ET March 20, 2018 | Updated 3:52 a.m. ET March 20, 2018 WASHINGTON — Melania Trump is hosting executives from major online and social media companies to discuss cyberbullying and Internet safety, more than a year after saying that would be her issue as first lady. The meeting Tuesday marks her first public event on the topic, a choice some observers have questioned given that her husband often berates people on Twitter. Amazon, Snap, Facebook, Google and Twitter are among the companies that are expected to attend the meeting. The Internet Association said it will also be represented. All the major technology companies have strict policies prohibiting harassment and other bullying behavior on their services, but primarily rely on users to report abuses and weed them out. They try to clearly spell out the kinds of remarks and other posts that won’t be tolerated in special sections such as one Facebook, the largest online social network, has set up. Instagram, a popular service among kids and young adults for sharing photos and videos, provides links to the U.S. government’s anti-bullying site and tips from a cyberbullying research center on one of its help pages. ... https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/03/19/melania-trump-cyberbullying-internet/440767002/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzRss&utm_campaign=usatoday-techtopstories
