She'll be a true asset to whichever institution she chooses.
All universities that have given me an honorary doctorate will anyway hear from me again when Im no longer chancellor, Merkel, who has been in office since 2005, said in a speech at the HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management.
HHL gave Merkel, a former physicist, the honorary qualification at a ceremony attended by Christine Lagarde, the nominee to become next head of the European Central Bank.
I will return and will not be staying for a short time like today. (I) will be staying longer, said Merkel, drawing laughter from the audience.
McCoy has been posting diminishing stats over the past couple of seasons.
Jadeveon Clowney has landed in Seattle.
This week reports surfaced that the Texans were in talks with the Miami Dolphins about a potential trade, and Clowney met with team brass. The pass rusher, however, reportedly resisted moving to South Beach and preferred the Pacific Northwest.
Seattle is in need of pass rush help after jettisoning Frank Clark this offseason. First-round pick L.J. Collier is rehabbing an offseason ankle injury and free-agent signee Ziggy Ansah remains a question mark after dealing with several injuries the past few seasons. Clowney would fill a massive hole on a playoff-caliber squad.
Interesting how he's perceived at home...
Many of his fellow citizens share his aversion to what they see as foreign meddling in how to strike a balance between protecting and developing the Amazon rainforest. The vast region is regarded at home as a key national asset but is seen globally as a crucial bulwark against climate change.
However, opinions in Brazil may change if trade sanctions or boycotts start to weigh on an already weak economy, politicians and analysts say.
A surge this year in the number of fires in the Amazon has sparked international outrage and protests in front of Brazilian embassies.
Environmentalists claim most of the fires were illegally set by land speculators and ranchers seeking to expand pastures in the Amazon who feel emboldened by Bolsonaros criticism of excessive environmental protections.
For reference, Troy Aikman currently makes around $7.5 million per year from FOX. Jon Grudens salary with ESPN was somewhere in the $6 million range before he decided to return as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders.
Joe Walsh, who has shown himself to be more than a little racist, says "we're all a little bit racist":
"Weve all said racist things. Ill bet if you and I went through everybodys Twitter feed, were going to find things that are objectionable and offensive. I think we all have. I know when I look back at some of my Tweets over the years, because I was so outspoken, yeah, Ive tweeted some racist things. On purpose? No.
So, if you were to be introspective and completely honest, how racist are you on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being free of any racism and 10 being a full-on KKK member.
I think I'd rate myself a 3 with the bit of racism I may possess being due to ignorance and blind spots, not some sort of willful hatred. (I'm a white male, BTW.)
