My jobs have required me to carry a gun and sometimes walk into harm way to protect others. Heck, I even been swimming among wild alligators crocodiles, in their river. I been through a lot; I not exactly lacking when it comes to courage or credentials..

REUTERS/Max Rossi/File PhotoLuxottica, the world biggest eyewear company whose brands include Ray Ban and Oakley, agreed in January a merger with Essilor, the biggest lens maker, to create an industry giant with a market value of 47 billion euros ($56 billion), more than 15 billion euros in revenues and 144,000 staff.The deal needs to clear antitrust hurdles in several countries and if approved is expected to close around the end of the year.The EU Commission was officially notified on Aug. 22 .EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said it was too early to say whether approval may require the companies to make significant concessions.are companies that have very big market shares and also, when it comes to sunglasses and lenses for glasses, obviously this is an important market, it is a very valuable market so I cannot say, she told Reuters on the sidelines of the Ambrosetti business conference in Italy.A negative reaction from Essilor customers to the merger, which the company said in July had affected its first half sales, has raised concerns among analysts that the two companies may be required to take more substantial concenssions to satisfy the competition regulators than initially anticipated.our concern over the mounting pushback from customers, recently stressed by Essilor, they said.A integration between two companies operating at different stages of the production chain is normally less worrying for competition watchdogs than a merger boosting a firm market share.
Christopher Wylie, who worked at the consultancy before it assisted President Trump’s 2016 campaign, pointed to Facebook’s tools that allow political candidates, advertisers and others to reach discrete categories of Americans online. Their narrowly tailored and delivered messages, he said at an event hosted by The Washington Post, “erode the public forum” because they allow some in politics to “go to every one of you in the audience and whisper you something.

California’s 49th District, Republican Darrell Issa: The former House Oversight Committee chairman made a name for himself in aggressively going after the Obama White House, so you know he’s in a lot of trouble when the Republican came out with a mailer praising the president for working with him on a bill to provide sexual assault protections within the criminal justice system. Issa, the wealthiest member of Congress, has plenty of his own money to spend here, but national Republicans also worry he started late and didn’t realize the drag Trump would be in his heavily educated Orange County district.
