olympic-rings

The International Olympic Committee banned Russia from the 2018 Winter Olympics after a state-sponsored doping scandal, but some Russian athletes are still allowed to compete independently. The nation is traditionally a winter sports powerhouse; will any Russian athletes compete this February in South Korea?

 

brexit

After weeks of speculation that Brexit talks were on the verge of collapse, recent reports indicate that British PM Theresa May may be close to striking a deal with the EU on a framework for negotiations. Will Britain and the EU reach a ‘divorce agreement’ by the end of the year?

 

deficit

In 2009, President Barack Obama was the first U.S. President to preside over a $1 trillion lead for federal spending in its historic struggle against federal revenue. Obama saw the deficit fall beneath $600 million by the time he left office; according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, though, the country’s on track for a return to a $1 trillion-plus deficit by 2019. Will the deficit hit $1 trillion in President Trump’s first term?

 

border wall

Six companies have submitted a total of eight prototypes for the Trump administration’s border wall. Of the eight prototypes, four are made of concrete and four are made of other materials. Will the border wall prototype be made of concrete or another material?
