MONDAY 5-7-18

1.      LeBron James hit a game winning shot just on Saturday night before time ran out and the Cavs won game three of their series with the Raptors 105-103 giving them a 3-0 series lead heading into game 4 tonight at The Q.   Does LeBron and the Cavs have whatever it takes? 

2.      Grayton Road Tavern's popular Queen of Hearts is now in the hands of Ohio’s legal system. The Grayton Road Tavern was set to start its next Queen of Hearts drawing this Wednesday but owner Jimmy Page issued this statement: "We are temporarily pausing the Queen of Hearts game while we await an opinion from the State of Ohio Attorney General’s office or a decision from a court regarding the continuation of the game. We appreciate everyone’s patience while this matter progresses" The jackpot was to start at $550,361. Is the game legal?  What happens to the half-million if the state shuts down the game of chance? 

3.      Justify won the 144th run for the roses and remains undefeated as he pulled away to win the Kentucky Derby by 2 ½ lengths over Good Magic on a rain soaked muddy track on Saturday.  Can Justify become the next horseracing superstar? 

4.      Forrest Fenn, the 87-year-old art dealer who claims to have hidden chest filled with gold nuggets and precious gems, says it may be 1,000 years from now before treasure hunters find the fortune.   Fenn said in 2010 that he hid the chest somewhere in the Rocky Mountains which is a 3,000 mile range. He said that as many as 350,000 people have searched for the bounty with no luck.  Do you think he really hid millions in the mountains? 

5.      The nation's unemployment rate is the lowest it has been in more than 17 years.   The Labor Department says the unemployment rate for April was 3.9%, the lowest since December of 2000.  How much do you think the Trump Administration's new tax laws play into these stats?  

6.      Multiple reports suggest that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and retired NFL player Herschel Walker will soon join President Trump’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition. The Council encourages Americans to adopt a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity and good nutrition. Can you think Belichick would be a good spokesman? 

7.      Warren Buffett seems to have a lot of faith in Apple and it shows in the 75 million shares he purchased in the first quarter. That's in addition to the 165.3 million shares Berkshire Hathaway already owned at the end of 2017. Buffett calls Apple an unbelievable company and said: "If you look at Apple, I think it earns almost twice as much as the second most profitable company in the United States." Do you share the same confidence in Apple as Warren Buffett?  

8.      President Trump has asked the Pentagon to look into reducing American troops in South Korea.  Should we pull all troops out of South Korea after the Kim Jong-un meeting? 

9.    The backlash continues for Kanye West in the wake of his comments regarding slavery in a conversation with TMZ earlier this week. Detroit's 105.1 FM has decided to pull Kanye West’s songs off their airwaves after West called 400 years of slavery a "choice."   Has Kanye suffered irreparable damage? 

10.   The marketing research company caught deceptively accessing over 87 million Facebook users’ data announced that they will be shutting down. Cambridge Analytica's parent company, SCL Group, said it was shutting its U.S. offices during a Wednesday conference call with employees.  They also announced that bankruptcy proceedings will begin in the U.S., as well as insolvency proceedings in the U.K, where the company has an office. The company said that "the siege of media coverage has driven away virtually all of the Company’s customers and suppliers."  Does the news surprise you?
