President-elect Donald Trump met with the top editors at Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and other Condé Nast magazines on Friday for a wide-ranging discussion on policy matters. Trump was joined by Kellyanne Conway, who will be counselor to the president once Trump takes office, and Hope Hicks, who he has tapped as his director of strategic communications. Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair who famously called Trump a “short-fingered vulgarian,” was in attendance. The meeting, which was organized by Vogue editor Anna Wintour, a Hillary Clinton supporter, marked a rare and perhaps fleeting truce between the incoming president and some of his most outspoken critics. Condé Nast Chairman Charles Townsend and Chairman Emeritus Si Newhouse were not in attendance. The meeting was off the record, but questions asked of Trump ranged from American policy toward Russia to women and abortion to race and hate crimes, sources with knowledge of the meeting told CNNMoney.

London Breaches Annual Air Pollution Limits in First Week of 2017

London Breaches Annual Air Pollution Limits in First Week of 2017

A general view of the London Skyline at twilight on October 26, 2016 in London, England. He pointed to a report issued this week by the International Council on Clean Transportation showing that emissions of nitrogen oxide from new diesel cars — which converts into nitrogen dioxide once it comes into the air — were more than double those from trucks and buses and more than six times the legal limit. European Union law stipulates that a maximum nitrogen dioxide concentration of 200 micrograms per cubic meter must not be exceeded for more than 18 hours over the year.

London breached its annual air pollution limits five days into the new year, Mayor Sadiq Khan said Friday. Thursday. “London’s toxic air is a national embarrassment, which damages more than its reputation as a modern global city,” said Alan Andrews, a Brixton resident who is a lawyer for the activist group ClientEarth. People are becoming increasingly aware that air pollution is a problem,” said Caroline Russell, a Green Party spokeswoman on transportation and a member of the London Assembly. Most main roads in London breach legal limits
The network said pollution levels had generally improved since the EU limits were introduced in 2010, but the majority of main roads in London still regularly breach legal values for nitrogen dioxide. “Mayor Sadiq Khan has put forward some welcome proposals to tackle the problem, including introducing a bigger ultra-low emission zone in 2019 and plans to use the cleanest buses on the most polluted roads. An air monitoring site at Brixton Road in south London began recording levels of nitrogen dioxide above the threshold early Thursday and continued to do so beyond the 18-hour legal limit, according to data from King’s College London. The Brixton Road site measured its 19th hour above the threshold at 9 p.m. “He went for a walk around the block, got wheezy, and had a serious asthma attack triggered by this polluted air.”
Last year, the annual air pollution limit was breached eight days in to 2016 — on Putney High Street in southwest London, according to London Air, a monitoring network run by King’s College. It’s essential he delivers on these plans and that the national government fully supports him.”
But Ian Colbeck, a professor of environmental science at the University of Essex, said trucks and buses are not the only problem. “One woman I spoke to this morning has a son with asthma, and she explained how completely debilitating it is for him,” Russell told CNN during a visit Friday to Brixton. Simon Birkett, founder and director of the Clean Air in London campaign, said in a statement: “Hourly nitrogen dioxide concentrations reached an incredible 347.7 micrograms per cubic (meter) in Brixton Road at 9 p.m. “When conditions are as bad as they were on Thursday, bus services should be suspended, drivers should be advised not to drive and pedestrians should be warned to avoid the area.”
However, Gary Fuller of King’s College said the reading was “high but not that incredible.” He told CNN: “In 2016 we measured nine hours above 400 micrograms per cubic meter alongside London’s roads.”
Health concerns among residents
“There is huge concern here. The mayor announced plans Friday for 10 low emission bus zones deploying the “greenest” buses on the capital’s most polluted routes to cut nitrogen oxide emissions. A general view of the London Skyline at twilight on October 26, 2016 in London, England.

Authorities identified the Fort Lauderdale gunman as Esteban Santiago, who allegedly brought the firearm in his checked luggage on Jan. The country’s largest mass shooting of the new year threw the busy Florida airport into chaos, with thousands of travelers and airport staff fleeing onto walkways and the tarmac as emergency responders and law enforcement officers, many heavily armed and in tactical gear, rushed to the scene. Eyewitnesses described an eerily calm assailant who fired bursts from a semiautomatic handgun at fellow airline passengers as they clustered around a baggage carousel – and then just as calmly tossed his weapon away and positioned himself spread-eagle on the ground, waiting for police to arrest him. The young Iraq war veteran suspected of fatally shooting five people and wounding eight others at Fort Lauderdale’s international airport Friday had become mentally agitated in recent weeks, family members said, despite his happiness over the birth of a son less than four months ago. 26.122439
