  • If you have ever been to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, then there is no doubt you know the ride 'Its A Small World'. The question is: Would you ride it for nearly 13 hours if it was for a good cause?  The team in training at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society seems to think so. On their website, they have announced that they will spend all of Saturday riding the 'Happiest Cruise that Ever Sailed' as many times as they can until the park closes. Each team member who participates in today's event will have a page that people can donate to in order to help raise money for blood cancer research.  The initial goal was to raise $25,000, but since that goal has already been reached, they have bumped it up to $32,000. The group says' Its the ultimate endurance challenge- both physically( sitting for hours on a hard plastic seat) and mentally( hearing the same song over and over and over).'  To keep track of the team's progress and donate yourself, you can check out their page here:  https://pages.lls.org/tnt/de/yourway20/smallworldchallenge2019

  • A senior White House official on Sunday confirmed that President Donald Trump has raised the issue of the United States possibly trying to buy the island of Greenland from Denmark, even though Danish officials say the North Atlantic outpost is not for sale. 'Greenland is a strategic place,' top economic adviser Larry Kudlow said at the end of an interview with Fox News Sunday, acknowledging that the President is interested. 'The President - who knows a thing or two about buying real estate - wants to take a look,' Kudlow added. The comments came even as officials in Denmark and Greenland said the island was not for sale. Kudlow noted that President Harry Truman had raised the same possibility when he was in office, but the idea went nowhere. 'We're open for business, not for sale,' said Greenland's official representative to the U.S. in a tweet. Reaction from Congress to the news reports about the idea of buying Greenland was muted. GOP Rep. Tim Burchett of Tennessee said on Twitter that he wouldn't support such an idea during a time of budget deficits. “I think it's Trump's Folly,” said Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA). The New York Daily News may have had the most fun with the story, printing a headline on Saturday which echoed one of the tabloid's most famous headlines ever.
