President Donald J. Trump?....Clinton Versus Trump: Predicting The Electoral College

05/24/2016 07:21 am ET 
President Donald J. Trump?
In this feverish year, the most recent symptom of distemper is media blather that — based on polling nearly 6 months out — America is on the cusp of electing Donald Trump. Before this conjures the megalomaniacal horror of Trump’s inaugural address, let me offer a consoling reality — that political fun house mirror known as the Electoral College.
We may not love it but, like shingles and pneumonia, this particular college will forever be with us. And so, a spoiler alert. At the end of this piece, I’m revealing who won the presidency in November, right down to the last electoral vote. Faced with a national nervous collapse, it seems unkind to wait.
I’m not alone in trying to be helpful. One day after the Indiana primary, the New York Times predicted the electoral vote count for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. A day earlier, I went through a similar exercise, and got an identical count.
My conclusion? Either the folks at the Times and I are idiotic to precisely the same degree, or this really isn’t all that hard. Since then, a brace of experts — Larry Sabato , the Cook Political Report, and the Rothenberg & Gonz├íles Political Report — have landed on or near this same number. The fun for me, and I hope for you, is in examining why.
The special sauce for this recipe is, of course, the inimitable Donald Trump. Among his other distinctive features he is, as of now, the least popular presidential candidate in modern American history.
Despite this, a spate of recent polls matching him against Clinton have caused the ever-febrile commentariat, ravenous for plot twists, to announce that Trump could become our president. This chorus of lemmings ignores a couple of factors which, unsurprisingly, have closed the polling margin: the Pavlovian tendency of Republican loyalists to come home after the party’s nomination has been settled, and the fact that Hillary Clinton and her party are still being battered by Bernie Sanders. more

If the world's expectations ever fazed Bob's firstborn son, he's never let it show. “I don't carry any weight,” he says. “This is a family. Whatever we are is the same way we grow up—nothing has changed, really. Each individual role is important.” He sees himself less as a patriarch than as a “voice of reason.” Still, there's a clear “hierarchy of the elders, the adults, which is Cedella, me, and Sharon (the oldest). Stephen is a bridge to the younger ones, who wasn't around Bob a lot.” If anything, his siblings' success—both in their own ventures and in shepherding the Marley brand—has freed him to be more personal in the studio. His 15th record, Ziggy Marley, is out May 20. “It's the album I've been most hands-on with: engineering, mixing, songwriting. I put all of myself into it.” The glue that holds the family together, Cedella is the undisputed queen bee, the driving force behind the many businesses that bear the Marley name.“It's a family discussion,” she says, “but whatever business ventures we get into, I'm the one who has to deal with whoever we partner with on a day-to-day basis.” Although she's authored children's books and collaborated with Puma to design the Jamaican 2012 Olympic uniform, most of her work fits into the bigger family picture. “Anything I do is for Marley. That's what I wake up for, to help build this empire that I promised my parents I would from when I was, like, 10.” That mentality underlines a fierce work ethic to match the Marleys' creative ambition. “When Mummy and Daddy were on the road all the time, they were workin',” Cedella says. “I didn't see them really take a day off. We weren't born with a silver spoon in our mouth. I've grown up fightin'.” more

JAMAICAN IS THE WORLD'S 2nd OLDEST LIVING PERSON : Violet Mosse Brown of Duanvale, Trelawny— 116 amazing years! Her 96 y-o son Harold Fairweather is widely believed to be the oldest person with a living parent

Jean Lowrie Chin  Monday, May 23, 2016   
In the quiet district of Duanvale, Trelawny, is a lady whose life has crossed three centuries.
She was six months in the making at the turn of the 20th century and her parents, Elizabeth Riley (who lived to 96) and John Mosse, welcomed into the world their daughter, Violet, on March 13, 1900 — born on the same premises where she still lives, 116 years later.
116-year-old Violet Mosse Brown
“I live by the grace of God and I am proud of my age!” declares Mrs Violet Mosse Brown, the world’s second-oldest living person according to the Guinness Book of Records and Wikipedia.
Mrs Mosse Brown exudes peace and contentment as she sits on her cool verandah, enjoying the comings and goings of the district. Beside her is her 96-year-old son, Harold Fairweather, incredibly youthful in appearance and widely believed to be the oldest person with a living parent. He lived in England for many years but says he returned home to be with his beloved mother, noting that she had sacrificed much for him and his other five siblings.
Mrs Mosse Brown receives support from her relatives, a devoted friend, Ms Elaine McGrawder and her caregiver, Delita Grant. They enjoy the company of this positive lady, who shares many gems of faith and poetry with them. Her favourite is The Vision of Belshazzar by Lord Byron, which she recited to us without a hitch.
At 13, a devout Violet was received into the Baptist Church, where she was given to read Psalm 119, verse 133 — words that she has never forgotten. She declared them to us: “Order my steps in Thy word and let no sin have any dominion over me.”
95 y-o Harold Fairweather
Mrs Mosse Brown and her husband worked as cane farmers, selling their crop to the Long Pond Sugar Estate. Later, he became the caretaker for the neighbouring cemetery, calling on his wife’s skills to assist him in record keeping. Her son, Harold, showed me the book in which she diligently entered information on the individuals buried in the cemetery.
It dates back to 1952 and Mrs Mosse Brown’s beautiful handwriting is a testament to the pride she took in her work, recording each name and other details for registration at the parish council.
We were impressed by the cheerful support in the Brown household. ‘Miss V’ was asked several times if she wanted a cup of tea, which she eventually had just before our departure. Her son, Harold, told us that she enjoys small meals.
“She likes fish and mutton and sometimes she will have cow foot,” he says, “but she does not eat pork or chicken”. Her other preferences are sweet potatoes, irish potatoes, breadfruit, and fruit, especially oranges and mangoes. more
