Speaking of unions, the UAW ruined the US auto industry.
So it was UAW fault the big three were making gas guzzling big cars when they were not selling? Don't let facts get in the way of your argument.  :)
If you want to vote Democrat, you are being very disloyal to Jewish people and very disloyal to Israel, Mr. Trump said.

The article isn't so interesting because it tells pretty much dry facts. I've heard the story a couple of time from R' Yosef Minkowicz (most recently during a Farbrengen last Shabbos, in which @Yard sale and many other might have heard me proclaiming that we should start a campaign for all to announce that we don't want Moshiach) with many more details and miraculous background.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-07-16/a-leveraged-loan-collapses-and-reveals-key-risk-in-credit-market?srnd=premium

Quote
Clover had been operating since 1996 when it was acquired by Golden Gate in 2010 for an undisclosed price. Golden Gate followed the usual path of private equity buyouts -- it piled debt on the underlying company to extract dividends.

Using the leveraged loan market as a wallet, the company took loans that funded dividend payments totaling at least $278 million -- $100 million in 2013 and $178 million in 2014. (Portions of the overall proceeds went to shareholders as well as to refinance the company’s existing debt and certain fees, according to a Moody’s report.) Clover also asked lenders for a further $100 million in 2014 to pay for an acquisition.

Maybe this should be posted in Ask the Accountant or Ask the Lawyer threads, but the question that begs to be asked is: Why isn't this illegal?

FTFY

Why did you have it going to an FTP?

ETA: and once link fixed, I don't really find the story one bit interesting.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-07-18/are-cellphones-a-flight-danger-they-are-on-these-boeing-jets?srnd=premium

Misleading title. The danger isn't from cellphones, but from bad units from Honewell in the cockpits. Based on article, the danger coming from cellphones to those, might as well come from many other sources beyond anyone's control.
