The passage of the plan was met with a coordinated wave of corporate public-relations announcements of worker bonuses. But the paper finds no widespread increase in bonuses or worker compensation.
There is no 'gay gene,' major study concludes
When assessing these arguments, keep a close eye on the number of Republican officials or conservative policy-makers who revise their position on the Trump tax cuts in light of the data. If their true primary goal was to increase business investment, then the complete failure of a highly expensive program to achieve its stated goal would lead them to question their support.
Why not cancel the Trump tax cuts and use the couple trillion dollars in lost revenue to fund a more effective growth-promoting policy? So far, the number of Republicans reassessing their support for the Trump tax cuts is, give or take, zero. What this suggests is that the alleged growth-incentivizing secondary effects of the plan were rationales, and the primary effect — giving business owners more money — was the hidden main goal all along.

Those calls — both with leaders who maintain controversial relationships with Trump — were among the presidential conversations that aides took remarkable steps to keep from becoming public. Instead, a transcript was never circulated at all, which the source said was highly unusual, particularly after a high-profile conversation. It was not clear whether Mr. Trump asked Mr. LaPierre for his support, or if the idea was pitched by the N.
But in return for the support, Mr. In a series of calls and emails, he has tried to move Mr.
Massive Study Finds No Single Genetic Cause of Same-Sex Sexual Behavior

The sixth grader was choosing T-shirt designs for her friends while the rest of her family watched the Chicago Bears game on TV. Suddenly, a stray bullet shattered the living room window and hit Kentavia in the head. Her panicked family called , and the sixth-grader was rushed to Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical condition.
The following day — her 12th birthday — Kentavia died. They were balloons that had been purchased for her birthday party. Former NRA President David Keene and his wife, Donna Keene, organized the trip with the promise of new business opportunities by the Russians, including access to a Russian arms manufacturer that was under U. By the time the call was over 30 minutes later, it quickly became clear that it was anything but.
Soon after President Trump put the phone down that summer day, the red flags began to go up. Rather than just one head of state offering another pro forma congratulations for recent elections, the call turned into a bid by Mr. The alarm among officials who heard the exchange led to an extraordinary effort to keep too many more people from learning about it.

Sign Out. Writing in the journal Science , an international team of researchers report how they drew on existing genetic databases to conduct the largest study yet into genetics and same-sex sexual behaviour. The team stress that they did not focus on identity or orientation, and did not include transgender individuals. By looking at sexual behaviour and relatedness of individuals, they estimated that about a third of the variation in same-sex behaviour is explained by genetics.
Dr Brendan Zietsch, co-author of the research from the University of Queensland in Australia, said that does not mean the rest is due to upbringing or culture. The team then looked at which genetic variants might be behind the link, using data from more than , participants in the UK Biobank project and more than 68, individuals whose data was collected by the company 23andMe.
Researchers found five genetic variants — tiny differences in DNA — that showed a clear link to same-sex sexual behaviour, two in both men and women, two found only in men and one found only in women. The team believe one, found only in men, might be involved in sex hormone regulation, not least because it is linked to male-pattern balding.
The study provides a number of insights, including that there is overlap between genetic predisposition to same-sex sexual behaviour and traits such as openness to experience, as well as predisposition to mental health problems. The authors also say their findings call into question the idea that sexuality exists on a single scale. However, the study has limitations including that it is based mainly on people of European ancestry, while the age range of participants does not fully reflect that of the wider population.
It also relied on self-reported behaviour.
