The man who slapped President Emmanuel Macron will spend the next four months in prison, and he has lost all of his civic rights for the next few years, French authorities say.

Damien Tarel, who is 28, apparently assaulted the president in a village known as Tain l’Hermitage — an incident he later described as “slightly impulsive.” 

Tarel said he had been “filled…with disgust,” when the president approached him to shake hands. 

“The slap would not have taken place if Macron had not gone directly to me,” the man said. “Otherwise I would have questioned him directly on political issues.” 

For his part, Macron described the assault as “foolish and violent.”

“We get used to a hatred on social networks which then normalizes, and when we meet face to face, we have the impression that it is the same thing, that is unacceptable,” he said. 

What else do we know about the incident?

Here’s the cold, hard truth about investing:

The more capital you have at your disposal, the more risk averse you can afford to be. 

But when you’re staring down the barrel of retirement and you’ve only got 5, 10, 50 or even $100,000 saved, you’ve got to be more aggressive. 

You need some big winners — trades that can climb several hundred percent over the course of weeks or a couple months.

U.S. consumer prices have already seen some increases, which experts believe may be an onward trend throughout the summer before calming down in the fall. 

Last month, the consumer price index rose by 0.6%. 

As I told you guys previously, it’s managed to hit an all time high since 2008.

It’s not everyday your house gets struck by lightning. It’s even more rare that your neighbor’s house gets struck at the same time. Earlier this week, that very thing happened multiplied by two. 

When a strong storm system moved through the state of North Carolina on Monday, reports of intense lightning were submitted all across the state. In one particular area, the lightning was so bad that a house was struck in a neighborhood, and then another was struck. 

Shortly after that, two more homes were struck by lightning in the same area. In total, four homes all within one mile of each other were all directly struck by lightning. What city in North Carolina did the bizarre quadruple strikes take place and what kind of damage did it cause?

Bad parenting: signs, effects, and how to change it

It’s a question we’ve probably all asked ourselves after a particularly rough day: “Am I a bad parent?” It’s easy to feel like your parenting skills are below par in a moment when nothing seems to be going your way, and you’ve exhausted your patience completely.
