"These executive orders will make it easier for agencies to remove poor performing employees and ensure that taxpayer dollars are more efficiently used," Andrew Bremberg, Trump's chief domestic policy adviser, told reporters at a briefing.

Honda Civic Type R pickup truck is the absurd and fast brainchild of U.K. Honda engineers

Honda Civic Type R pickup truck is the absurd and fast brainchild of U.K. Honda engineersFollowing in the footsteps of BMW's custom M3 pickup trucks, engineers at Honda's Civic hatchback factory in the U.K. built their own high-performance pickup out of a 2018 Honda Civic Type R. The car is just as absurd as you would hope. The roof from behind the B-pillars has been chopped out to create a truck bed, one filled with diamond-pattern steel. The engineers managed to retain the curves of the original sheet metal, and shaped the tops of the bed sides to mirror them.

Why you should eat vegetarian—and not just because it’s healthierA vegetarian diet won’t just help to keep your waist slimmer — it’ll also keep your wallet fatter. Researchers from the European Association for the Study of Obesity compared a vegetarian diet with the Mediterranean diet, which is based on eating habits of those in Greece and Italy and relies heavily on fish and fruits and vegetables, and the so-called “U.S.-healthy diet” based on government-distributed dietary guidelines. To produce the analysis, researchers created two-week menu plans assessed for their nutritional quality and used the cheapest price available from Amazon (AMZN).

The first three months of the year were the strongest first quarter for gold jewelry demand in the United States since 2009, according to the World Gold Council. Sellers say that is due in no small part to the public's fascination with American actor Meghan Markle, who was engaged to Britain's Prince Harry last November and who married him in a dazzling ceremony on Saturday.

Why Companies Aren’t Investing Their Tax Cut Windfalls

Why Companies Aren’t Investing Their Tax Cut WindfallsOne big problem is uncertainty surrounding some of the new rules, especially as they relate to the taxation of international profits. The old tax law had many problems, Gleckman writes, but the flawed system at least provided the certainty that many businesses say they need to plan new capital spending. Numerous critics have pointed out that the promised surge in domestic investment as a result of the corporate tax cut has yet to materialize, and Gleckman thinks that uncertainty over how the new rules will work in practice and the possibility that they may see substantial adjustments in the near future are leading companies to sit on the cash or simply return it to shareholders through dividends and buybacks.
