Positive Doping, Japanese Fast Spy Slate at Pyeongchang

Japan's fast skater Kei Saito is suspended from the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics after his tests showed he was positive about illicit substances.

Saito arrived at the athletes' village in South Korea's Pyeongchang town on Monday and tested shortly after participating in training activities . He was temporarily suspended by the Sports Arbitration Court after his test showed positive results for acetalozamide, a diuretic that can be used to disguise drugs to improve performance.

In a statement, Saito suggested he was "shocked" by the result, because he never used steroids or even considered using steroids. He left his team and the athlete's village voluntarily so that he would not burden his colleagues.

US Citizens Positive Economic Value, Negative Trump Value

Nearly two-thirds of Americans have a good view of the American economy, according to a new poll. But gave a negative view on the performance of President Donald Trump in the care of the economy and a number of other issues.

In his latest poll, Quinnipiac University said 63 percent of voters considered the American economy "excellent" or "good", while 34 percent said " too good "or even" bad. "

Three-quarters of voters describe their own financial situation as" excellent "or" good ", while another quarter have a negative view of their personal finances.

The poll says that voters, a comparison of 51 versus 44 percent, does not approve of the way of economic handling by President Trump. With a margin of 45 per cent to 43 per cent, voters say that President Barack Obama deserves more praise than Trump for the good state of the American economy. The unemployment rate of 4.1 percent is currently at its lowest level in 17 years, and the stock market index is at its highest point.

Overall, the Quinnipiac survey says voters with a 59 to 37 comparison disagree with Trump's performance at the White House in 11 month of his presidency. This is almost identical to the results of a poll conducted by Gallup, with a ratio of 59 versus 36.

Commonly, it is said, the American people do not think Trump is honest, lacks good leadership skills, no matter the average American fate, cold and do not have the same value with them. But Quinnipiac says with a comparison of 55 against 40, Americans view Trump as strong, and with a lead of 52 to 45, arguing that he is intelligent.

The poll gave a negative view to Trump for the handling of foreign policy, terrorism, immigration, health care and taxation policies, as Congress prepares to approve a $ 1.5 trillion tax cut for the next decade. This is Trump's first victory in the legislature.

Quinnipiac says that with a 50-46 lead, the Trump voters must resign after allegations of sexually harassing more than 12 women in the 2016 presidential election campaign. Trump repeatedly said the allegations were unfounded . The White House added voters knew about the allegations when they voted, but still decided to vote. [sp/ii]
