Senior PGA Championship raises questions about Trump profiting off his presidency.

  • As top players age 50 and over competed for the Alfred S. Bourne Trophy, questions buzzed about whether the Senior PGA Championship was another example of Trump potentially profiting from his office.
  • “It’s the greatest marketing in the world,” first son Eric Trump told the Washington Post of coverage of the tournament, where several players are wearing Trump-brand gear.
  • While it’s unclear if Trump is earning anything from ticket revenue, according to the Post, his company “stands to gain positive publicity” from hosting the event. 
  • It also serves as a reminder, the Post reported, of the complex web of business interests that Trump has failed to divorce himself from since taking office — despite promises that he would. Read more (5/29/17 9:05 AM)

okay, okay. I know this is not Yuri!!! On Ice but I’m a nerd who likes golf so let me explain. so a famous golfer, Jordan Speith, holed a bunker shot for birdie in a sudden death playoff with Daniel Berger (who he tied the tournament with so they had to keep playing to know who’d get the ultimate title) to win the Traveler’s Championship after four days of keeping the lead and as a competitor golfer this was the coolest thing I have ever seen and I wanted to share it with everyone who doesn’t really know much about golf :))

anonymous asked:

Hello! Do you have a tag for fics where either Louis or Harry (or both, why not?) have unconventional jobs? I tried looking at your fic masterpost but I couldn't find it. If not, could you please do one? Thanks in advance lovely!!

Ooookay this one was a great challenge love ! (thanks a lot to @miniboyfriendloueh and @tvshows-addict for the brainstorming, it was fun !)

Also, warning, it’s gonna be a long one :)

At first, I can’t just not talk about Escapade  , Wear It Like A Crown , You’ll Breathe Me In (You Won’t Release) , Wild And Unruly , or Love Is A Rebellious Bird , but yeah, those are all classics :)

- Worlds Away  : astronaut au fic where Louis is staying on the international space station and Harry is on earth working ground control and he and Louis have really quiet late night chats after most of the workers are gone and get to know each other in the biggest long distance relationship u could ever have…then eventually Louis comes back to earth and they have a beautiful meeting  (7k, Astronaut Louis, and ground control Harry)

- It’s All Brand New Because of You  : It’s nearing six o’clock in the evening, and despite the fact that it’s summer, the aquarium has emptied out considerably and it’s quiet as Louis wanders the exhibits. A few people try to ask him questions as he wanders, but Louis knows less about the creatures in the tanks than they do, so he keeps having to apologize and explain that he’s just a counselor, not a biologist.AKA, Louis starts a new job as a summer camp counselor at the local aquarium and Harry is a biologist who really likes teaching people about the ocean.(16k, biologist Harry)

- the impossible now  : A wish on Christmas Eve sends Louis to an alternate dimension where Harry is a member of One Direction. (50k, botanist Louis)

- i can be the motor (you’ll be the gasoline): Harry is a British pop star living in LA. While trying to escape his reality of publicity stunts and record sales, his Harley breaks down. Stranded in the mountains, Harry has no choice but to call for help. And, somehow, a fit tow truck driver with the ocean in his eyes might end up fixing more than just Harry’s bike. (8k, mecanic Louis)

- Take My Breath Away   :There is a prestigious school in the British Royal Navy classified as Premier Delta - or as it is known by its flyers, 1D. These select pilots are an elite set of Naval lieutenants who are trained in the skill of aggressive aerial combat. They are instruments of war, trained in times of peace. They are dogfighters, relentless and fearless in their mission to protect their beloved country. From their lofty vantage, they are always watching, waiting, and ready to lay it all on the line.Lt. Harry Styles, call sign Sparrow, is a prodigy when it comes to flying. The owner of an unrivaled Naval pedigree, being a pilot was always written in the stars for Harry. With his trusty RIO, Lt. Niall Horan, Harry has made an unprecedented ascension in the ranks of the Naval aerial combat elite, and has been recruited to the esteemed Premier Delta flight school, carrying on his family’s legacy. What he finds there are unexpected friendships, perilous challenges, and something beyond what he ever thought possible. Because as his father had always told him, before the great Captain Styles went tragically missing in combat, you don’t fall in love with the sky, you fall in love with what keeps you on the ground.(150k, Pilot!Harry and Louis)

- taking tips and getting stoned: Louis drives a taxi. He hasn’t seen Harry in eight years when they have a chance meeting. A lot has changed in that time. But not everything. (24k, Taxi driver Louis)

So Darling, Just Say You’ll Stay Right by My Side  : Harry is visibly buzzing with excitement as they get into the police car, and Louis laughs, reaches out to put a hand on Harry’s knee and try and calm him a bit. “Relax, McClane, we’re just stopping in on a few of the local businesses to say hello. No need to sit with one finger on the trigger.”“I don’t think you’ll need to worry about me being trigger-happy, Lou,” Harry says with another one of his megawatt grins, patting the water pistol holstered by his hip.[AU where Louis is the chief of police in a small sea-side town and Harry is his new deputy who’s a bit of a pacifist and a lot wonderful.] (28k, Deputy Harry and Chief Police Louis)

- Naked & Proud :  The town itself is tiny, as evidenced by the ten minutes it’s taken Louis to drive the entire thing. There’s not a single recognisable brand in sight—no Tesco or McDonald’s or even a bloody Starbucks. Lining the streets instead are mom and pop stores with names like ‘Jerry’s Burgers’ and ‘The Market Basket’ and…  “'Naked & Proud?‘” Louis almost slams on the brakes at the outlandish sign, the name written in a seemingly innocent font, words curved around a large cartoon peach. He can’t help turning into the carpark, easing the car into a spot next to a beat up truck.  He isn’t sure what to make of it. Surely it isn’t a strip joint or sex shop, not with the families and little old ladies going in and out of the establishment. Some kind of nudist hangout, perhaps?  And, oh, God. Did Louis’ mother accidentally send him to live in a nudist colony? In which Harry runs an organic store, not a nudist colony, and Louis doesn’t know whether to be relieved or disappointed. (18k, organic store owner Harry)

(34k, golfer Harry, commentator Louis)

- fill my little world right up : When the doorbell to his flat rings and Harry walks to the door irritated and bored, he definitely doesn’t expect the repairman to be so…fit.  He has to keep his jaw from falling completely open when he comes face to face with the man that’ll be in his house for the next hour or so trying to fix his Netflix.  And god, this is embarrassing.  AU in which Harry’s Netflix isn’t working, and Louis comes over to fix it.  Fluff ensues. (2k, Netflix fixer Louis)
