One Day To US Election, See Who Is Leading According To New Poll

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leads her Republican rival by three percentage points nationally as they head into the final day of a tight race for the White House, according to a new poll.

The final Bloomberg Politics-Selzer & Co poll released on Monday has Clinton ahead of Trump, 44 percent to 41 percent.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson was at 4 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein had 2 percent support.

Clinton also leads Trump by three points in a hypothetical two-way matchup when third-party candidates are not included.

Another tracking poll released early on Monday also put Clinton in the lead.

The former secretary of state held a four-point lead over the billionaire businessman in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll. The survey showed 47 percent of likely US voters backed Clinton while 43 percent said they supported Trump.

The Clinton campaign received a late break with FBI Director James Comey announcing Sunday that no criminal charges were forthcoming in the probe of Clinton’s newly-found emails.

“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July,” the FBI chief wrote in a new letter to congressional committee chairmen.

The development is a major relief to Clinton, who is spending the final hours of her campaign trying to close Trump’s path to presidency.

Why You Were Dumped, According to Your Zodiac Sign

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Aries people are overwhelming. They’re impatient and frenetic and demanding, although you can’t fault them for not plunging into relationships quickly enough. Maybe your Aries significant other kept ditching you because you couldn’t keep up with their new interest or plan, or maybe you got into a fight and realized just how immature and intolerant the Mars temper can be. Either way, now that you’re single, find a nice quiet room and appreciate the fact that you finally get to sit still for a while. Phew.

 Taurus (April 20-May 20)

So you tried to dissuade a Taurus from hanging out with someone you dislike or going out to the same restaurant as usual for dinner — how’d that work out for you? Taureans are unbelievably stubborn, and whether that takes the form of active opposition or of simply hiding their bad habits from you, you’re not going to make much headway in changing them. Leave the bull be and don’t expect an apology anytime soon, but trust that they’ll probably sit in their room and sadly listen to “your song” for at least a few months after you’re gone. Because again, too stubborn to just let it go.

 Gemini (May 22-June 21)

They weren’t kidding about the two personalities thing. Geminis are fickle romantics who are never sure of what they want. You might manage to get them to commit, but the mood swings and hot-and-cold games get old quickly. Geminis also basically invented ghosting, so don’t be surprised if you don’t hear from them for four months straight and then get a “heyy what’s up?” Facebook message like nothing ever happened. Sigh.

  Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Sensitive and sentimental, Cancerians are like the friend in every rom-com that the heroine is supposed to end up with. They’re cautious and probably afraid of losing you, requiring constant reassurance. They crave security and are very careful with money, which is good in a marriage partner but less fun if you’re just trying to enjoy date night out on the town. They’re also reluctant to open up, and they probably fancy themselves “deep” and “damaged.” If all of that sounds like a lot of work for a relationship, you’re correct.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 21)

The sad truth for anyone who has tried to date a Leo is that they don’t want to be loved, they want to be adored. Leos are high-maintenance, only happy when they are being showered with attention, and can be immature when they feel they’re being neglected. Unfaithfulness is not an uncommon problem with this sign, and that narcissism gets old quickly if the Leo in question is not a truly awesome person worthy of your attention. TBD if your Leo ex has put down the mirror long enough to notice you’re gone, though.

  Virgo (Aug. 22-Sept. 23)

Virgos are so on top of their sh*t, it’s infuriating. They love to work, and work a lot more than they love. If you did break up with a Virgo, you probably still feel like the bad guy because in addition to being driven and respectful, Virgos are often such gentle and kind people. Chalk it up to their unrealistic relationship (and everything else, for that matter) goals.


  Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Librans are famously contradictory, so if it felt like you could never win an argument in the relationship, you weren’t wrong. Fighting with a Libra is hopeless, as is avoiding fights altogether. Libran inconsistency means you never know what exactly will annoy them from week to week, and they’re so good at rationalizing their side of the argument, you’ll always be persuaded to see their side of things. To be honest, you’re lucky you found the determination to break up with these charmers at all.

  Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)

OK, this one is on you honestly. Everyone knows what they’re signing on for by dating a Scorpio: they’ll love you with the fire of a thousand suns, but hell hath no fury like a Scorpio scorned. They’re intense, they’re prideful, and they probably make more money than you do. It’s hard not to be drawn toward the mystery and steady confidence of Scorpios, but the kind of possessiveness they exhibit in relationships is downright exhausting if you’re not into it. Maybe go date a flighty Aquarius for a while as a breather.


Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 22)

Sagittarians hate to be tied down. You have to be ready to pick up and move to the other side of the world for a few months or spontaneously attend a 2 a.m. improv show if you want to keep up with them, and who has time for that? Plus, if the short attention span didn’t get to you, there is nothing like Sagittarius’s blunt honesty to ruin a good thing. Yes, dear, I know my roots are showing, thank you for that and see you never.


Capricorn (Dec. 23-Jan. 20)

Capricorns are steady and unassuming but fiercely ambitious. They don’t have the Leo ego, but they do tend to take themselves too seriously. They also have a great deal of respect for authority and tradition and hate uncontrolled emotion or PDA. So, yeah, not exactly the summertime fling anyone’s looking for.


Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 19)

Aquarians love defying convention, so if you didn’t get a tattoo, dye your hair a strange color, or pierce your eyebrow while you were with an Aquarius, consider the damage minimal. Aquarians are fun free spirits, but they often live in their own little worlds and are flighty AF. Their hearts and minds are always open, so even though it may be difficult to date an Aquarius, odds are the first thing he or she asked when you were breaking up was, “Can’t we still be friends?”

Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20)

Oh, poor Pisces. The Zodiac’s peacekeepers, Pisces have a strong tendency to become doormats if you let them. I have never been a proponent of the “nice guys finish last” theory, but there are only so many times you can debrief with your significant other before you’re like, “Dear God, send me someone with intimacy issues and an inability to apologize!”

Best Way To Argue With Your Partner According To Psychologist Who Studied Couples For Decades

When’s the last time you really got into it with your significant other? After the yelling was done, did your mind swirl with ideas about what you should have said? Or perhaps about what you should not have said?

Here’s the good news: Not only can you most likely rectify the situation, but also knowing how to approach the argument next time can mean you and your partner have a more productive — and perhaps less volatile — “discussion.”

Productive arguments, in fact, are one of the things that appear to distinguish couples who stay together from those who split, according to research from several psychologists, including University of Washington psychology professor John Gottman, founder of the Gottman Institute, an organization dedicated to studying and improving relationships.

Together with University of California at Berkeley psychologist Robert Levenson, Gottman conducted a 14-year study of 79 married couples living across the US Midwest.

Among the couples they studied, 21 ended up divorcing over the more than decade-long period. But among those who stuck it out, Gottman and Levenson noticed some key things about their relationships, including how they fought. Here are some of the key takeaways:

How couples who stay together argue

1. They stabilize a rocking boat.

Among the couples who split, the vast majority took far longer to address a recent argument than those who stayed together, often leaving each other to stew in individual thoughts for hours or days after a fight, Gottman told Business Insider. Conversely, couples who stayed together would typically discuss their arguments almost immediately after they’d happened.

Picture yourself and your partner in a boat, Gottman suggested. Now imagine that the emotions you and your partner are feeling are represented by the sea around you. A small argument stirs the waters a bit and gets the boat rocking. But a quick effort to stabilize the boat — with an open conversation or an apology — can be all that’s required to get you back to smooth sailing.

Waiting around, on the other hand, only strengthens the waves. And waiting too long, he said, can lead to disaster.

To calm a rocking boat, Gottman suggests you and your partner talk immediately and openly about what just happened. This requires recognizing that both of you are partially responsible for the problem and both of you are responsible for making amends.

2. They allow the other person to be heard.

Another characteristic of couples who later divorced that Gottman observed is that they’d frequently cut off discussions about a conflict prematurely with unhelpful, insensitive comments. But strong couples tended to consistently approach one another with an open mind, taking responsibility for their actions and listening to what their partner had to say.

So if, in the middle of an argument, you stop your partner to them they’re being illogical, you’re probably doing it wrong.

“If you tell someone they’re not being logical or say something like ‘you’re getting off track,’ it just doesn’t work. It makes people angry,” said Gottman. Instead, saying something like: “I can see that this is really important to you; tell me more” allows the other person to feel heard.

Total Sum Of What Dasuki, Others Allegedly Stole According To Court Papers

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has accused a former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, a former minister of state for Finance, Bashir Yuguda, and a former director of finance at the office of the NSA, Shuaibu Salisu, of stealing N5.05 billion between April 14, 2014 and May 7, 2015.

The anti-graft agency also accused Mr. Yuguda, alongside a former governor of Sokoto state, Attahiru Bafarawa, his son, Sagir Bafarawa, and their company, Dalhatu Investment Limited, of receiving stolen property amounting to N4.633 billion from the office of the National Security Adviser.

The accused persons, who were arraigned before Justice Peter Affen of the High Court of the Federal Capital territory Abuja on Tuesday, all pleaded not guilty to a 22-count charge of fraud.

The charges are different from those raised against Mr. Dasuki and his alleged accomplices on Monday, involving the alleged misuse of N13.6 billion state funds.

Court paper obtained provide details of new charges against the former NSA. They contain supporting affidavits by a legal officer of the EFCC, Andrew Akoja.

Details of the 22-count charge against the suspects showed that Messrs. Dasuki and Salisu, between April 14, 2014 and May 7, 2015, transferred N3.350 billion from the account of the NSA with Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, to the account of “Dalhatu Investment Limited with United Bank for Africa Plc, purporting same to be payment for the supply of security equipment”.

Mr. Bafarawa and his son, Sagir, as well as their company, Dalhatu Investment were also charged with collecting N3.350 billion from the former NSA “knowing the said sum to be stolen property but purporting same to be payment for the supply of security equipment”.

Messrs. Dasuki and Salisu are also accused of transferring another N500 million from the account of the NSA with Skye Bank to the account of Dalhatu Investment Limited with UBA on December, 20 2014 “purporting same to be payment for the supply of security equipment”.

Dalhatu Investment and the Bafarawas are also accused of receiving the same N500 Million even after “knowing same to be stolen property”.

The Bafawaras and their company are also accused of receiving another N100 million from a company, Jabbama Ada Global, on the instruction of former minister Yuguda, purportedly for the presidential campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party in Sokoto State, and knowing that the sum belonged to the Nigerian government.

Mr. Bafarawa, his son, Sagir, and their company Dalhatu Investment are also accused of “dishonestly receiving” N783 million between June 25 and August 20, 2014 into their account with UBA from the account of SAS Imprest Main Account with the CBN on the instruction of Mr. Dasuki.
