The Rafu Shimpo is a bilingual Japanese-English language newspaper based in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, California.

If Major League Soccer commissioner Don Garber wants to stanch the bile that has been oozing since the Austin escape clause was revealed in mid-October, and retire with grace, he has it in his power. He can accept an olive branch from Columbus city leaders. He can cap a career with a soaring coup de grace.
Lady Juliana, daughter of the Earl of St. Maur, needs all the help she can get. She's running a ramshackle orphanage, London's worst slumlord has illicit designs on her, and her father has suddenly become determined to marry her off. Enter Major Neil Wraxall, bastard son of the Marquess of Kensington, sent to assist Lady Juliana in any way he can. Lucky for her, he's handy with repairs, knows how to keep her and the orphans safe, and is a natural leader of men. Unfortunately for both of them, the scandal that ensues from their mutual attraction is going to lead them a merry dance...
An unjust fall from grace may have sent the formerly prim and proper Miss Dorothea Oakley-White into hiding, but she refuses to be silenced. Using a pen name, the brainy beauty takes great delight in skewering the hypocrisies of the ton in The Ladies' Moral Intelligencer. Only her latest target--the dashing rake, Lord Layburne--has hunted her down, demanding she stop her attacks at once. Spirited Dorothea promises she will--if only he can restore her rightful position in society . . .When Layburne discovers his nemesis is none other than lovely Thea, who blames him for the scandalous end to her engagement, he's intrigued by the challenge she offers. But once he agrees to her conditions, he's enamored with the idea of seducing Thea himself. Will his powerful desire dishonor her forever? Or will it make the ton's most celebrated scoundrel a husband at long last?
[Smith] "really gets Minnesota, she gets the players, she has great built-up relationships," a Democratic operative tells Politico. "She makes practical sense, and she would be a good bridge builder." But her main attribute is that she almost certainly won't want to run for the seat in a 2018 special election, Politico says, leaving a level playing field for Democrats who might be interested in running. Possible contenders include Rep. Keith Ellison, deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and Rep. Tim Walz. It would also give Republicans an unexpected shot to pick up what was, until Franken's swift fall from grace, a safe seat.
"I called President Bush when I was considering running for Congress and he not only encouraged me to do so but served as my finance chair and did so until recently," Williams said. "Even before then he told me that the most noble calling of all is public service and that greatly influenced my decision to enter politics." 041b061a72
