Emmanuel Macron Makes the Case for a Stronger Europe, in a Bid to Lead It
Europe might have a new leader to replace Germany’s Angela Merkel, if French President Emmanuel Macron gets his way. With the German Chancellor holed up in Berlin, attempting to piece together a coalition after an underwhelming election victory on Sunday, Macron strode forcefully into the gap on Tuesday afternoon, unveiling a dramatic new plan to overhaul the 28-member European Union, a role that French leaders have for years largely ceded to Germany. In a key two-hour speech at the Sorbonne University in Paris, Macron laid out a detailed blueprint for how to overhaul the E.U., including knitting the continent togeth...

8 Ways To Save More Money In Retirement
If you’re getting close to retirement age, it’s perfectly normal to be excited. One day, you’ll hand in your resignation at work and begin counting down the hours (instead of the weeks or years) until you’re living life on your own terms. You’ve worked your entire life for this moment, so it’s only natural to look forward to this change with gratitude and enthusiasm. But, if you’re like most Americans, there may be an issue. You may dream of restful mornings reading the newspaper and late night card sessions with friends, but that doesn’t mean your bank account agrees. A rece...

This Is What Obamacare's Critics Won't Admit Or Simply Don't Understand
THOUSAND OAKS, California ― Maryann Hammers is likely to die from ovarian cancer someday. But she hopes someday won’t come anytime soon. Hammers, 61, received the diagnosis in late 2013, and doctors told her that it was stage 3-C, which meant that she could live for many years with the right treatment and a little luck. So far, she’s had both. She’s in remission for the second time, and her last course of chemotherapy ended a year and a half ago. But recent blood tests detected elevated levels of a protein associated with tumors, she explained when we met a few weeks ago. “Maybe it’s a fluk...

Weekend Roundup: Where the UN Can Succeed Instead of Fail
The Paris climate accord, signed by 175 countries in April, was a high point of success for the United Nations. And the U.N. has also managed to focus governments around the world on sustainable development goals. Yet, on the security side of the equation, for which the U.N. was principally founded, the record is largely one of failure. The international body has been unable to stop the carnage in Syria. North Korea continues to defy every successive U.N. resolution over its nuclear program. The United States invaded Iraq in 2003 without U.N. sanction -- just as the former Soviet Union similarly invaded Afghanistan in 19...
