Among the Ghent Free Map's many recommendations are a mix of stylish new places like Wasbar (Nederkouter 109, wasbar.com), a combination of laundry and retro coffee bar, and the more traditional, like the home-style kitchen at the De Lieve restaurant (Sint-Margrietstraat 1, eetkaffee-delieve.be), which serves hearty beef stews and casseroles. But the map really gets under the skin of the city by pointing visitors to places like The White Cat (Drongenhof 40, whitecat.be), a local dive bar, which plays funk and soul and is "in a medieval cellar without any fresh air. This one is from the 14th century and has a pink ceiling, pink walls and an aquarium as a bar." It also highlights the "graffiti tunnel next to the tourist office".

But an exclusive Guardian report has already found that USWNT players could only earn federation bonuses for winning a World Cup at 1/5th of what USMNT players could earn for doing the same.

The women only get a bonus for finishing in the top three – and it’s a tiny bonus by comparison. In all likelihood, Ellis’s World Cup bonuses will follow a similar track. … [Read more...] about The USMNT coach almost earned World Cup winner Jill Ellis’s annual salary in a month. Why?
This is no mere Trumpian personal idiosyncrasy. The GOP is absorbing the ideological tendencies of other far-right nationalist parties. The Nevada Republican Party chair raged at evening early-voting in Las Vegas: “Last night, in Clark County, they kept a poll open till ten o’clock at night so a certain group could vote … Yeah, you feel free right now? Think this is a free or easy election?” Alabama’s Jeff Sessions, Trump’s closest Senate ally, has railed against “a global intellect — elites with their big money” and “George Soros and his globalist crowd.” Milwaukee sheriff David Clarke, who spoke at the Cleveland convention and has been touted as a potential Homeland Security secretary, tweeted that anti-Trump protests “must be quelled.” A recent Pew survey asked whether certain characteristics are important to maintaining a strong democracy. Fewer than half of the Trump supporters surveyed agreed with the … [Read more...] about How the Loyal Opposition Will Work in Trump’s America
