  1. Atlanta

    Atlanta is the capital of and the most populous city in the U.S. state of Georgia, with an estimated 2011 population of 432,427. Atlanta is the cultural and economic center of the Atlanta metropolitan area, home to 5,457,831 people and the ninth largest metropolitan area in the United States. Atlanta is the county seat of Fulton County, and a small portion of the city extends eastward into DeKalb County. Atlanta was established in 1837 at the intersection of two railroad lines, and the city rose from the ashes of the Civil War to become a national center of commerce. In the decades following the Civil Rights Movement, during which the city earned a reputation as "too busy to hate" for the progressive views of its citizens and leaders, Atlanta attained international prominence. Atlanta is the primary transportation hub of the Southeastern United States, via highway, railroad, and air, with Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport being the world's busiest airport since 1998. Atlanta is considered an "alpha world city," and, with a gross domestic product of US$270 billion, Atlanta's economy ranks 15th among world cities and sixth in the nation. Although Atlanta’s economy is considered diverse, dominant sectors include logistics, professional and business services, media operations, and information technology. Topographically, Atlanta is marked by rolling hills and dense tree coverage. Revitalization of Atlanta's neighborhoods, initially spurred by the 1996 Olympics, has intensified in the 21st century, altering the city's demographics, politics, and culture.

  4. Grover Norquist:

    CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER The United States largest employer, Walmart -- its latest sales were not down, but up. It revised its profit forecast not down, but up. Macroeconomic Advisors, Macroeconomic Advisors, just revised its economic growth projections -- no, not down, but up. And the Atlanta Fed just revised its economic growth projections -- again, not down, but up. In the real economy, the President Trump administrations pro-enterprise agenda is working. Lower taxes and less regulation gave businesses the confidence to invest. That means more innovation and higher worker productivity. That means more jobs are created, and workers are paid more because theyre producing more. The latest jobs report saw 164,000 jobs added in July, bringing the labor force to 163.4 million - a record high. With President President Trump, we have the lowest unemployment for 50 years, and the lowest on record for African-American and Hispanic workers. And just published -- the lowest summer youth unemployment in 53 years. Yes, the lowest since 1966. On workers pay, new data the other week showed that earnings rose 4.5 percentin 2017 and 5 percentin 2018, even higher than previously reported - and miles ahead of inflation. While President Trump pray for a recession and Wall Street plays around with the fake economy, the real economy is booming. So is everything just fine and dandy, with nothing to worry about. Can President President Trump and President Trump team just sit back and ride the economic wave all the way to reelection next year ? Not at all. Theres no question that the rest of the world is doing poorly. China, Germany and the UK -- their economies are all heading in the wrong direction. So what should President Trump do to keep our economy moving ahead ? Its no use just yelling at the Fed -- theres a limit to what they can do. But there are two big things the president can do, on his own initiative, without Congress or anyone else. First is something we told you about in June, a positive and practical idea from Grover Norquist, founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform.Get rid of the tax on inflation, and youll see trillions of dollars redeployed to highest and best use.

  5. Travis Kvapil:

    The biggest thing is, we found that racecar, it's a small team and this (would have been) a big setback for us if that was missing. It was enough of a setback as it was, not being able to qualify and run the race at Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend.
