  • Since 1972, the Iowa caucuses have been the first time Americans vote for a potential president.
  • The outcome can change presidential races. The winner gets a spurt of momentum and media attention. But the majority have not gone on to be president.
  • Only three politicians have won a contested Iowa caucus and become president — Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

Iowa is no guarantee, but it promises momentum.

The Iowa caucuses, which have only been around since 1972, are the first time voters have a say in who could be the next president. As Alex Altman wrote for Time, "Iowa is the kind of place where a candidate can win on sweat and gas money."

Only three politicians have won a contested Iowa caucus and become president — Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

But 15 others have won Iowa and not become president. The other times, sitting presidents won the caucuses when they were running unopposed, or with little competition.

Carter's 1976 presidential run was the first time the Iowa caucuses changed everything. He campaigned vigorously on the ground, and by winning Iowa, he turned an unlikely run into a successful presidential campaign by harnessing the media's attention.

It happened again in the 2008 election. Before the caucuses, Obama was trailing Hillary Clinton, but the early victory was enough to bolster his reputation, and by Super Tuesday, he had taken the lead in polls.

Here are all of the contested Iowa caucus winners and what happened to them after winning.

In 1972, Democrat Sen. Edmund Muskie won the Iowa caucuses, but didn't get the party's nomination. A number of factors led to his faltering campaign, but one event that's often referred to was a press conference where he started crying. He claimed it was melted snow. Regardless, the outburst hurt his chances.

In 1976, Democrat Jimmy Carter won the Iowa caucuses, with 27% of the vote. He got the Democratic nomination, and became president. According to The Atlantic, his early victory, built upon intense local campaigning, changed how Iowa impacted a presidential campaign. Before winning Iowa, he wasn't taken seriously, but after he won, the media portrayed him as a real candidate.

LIVE: House prosecutors make their final opening arguments in Trump's historic impeachment trial

  • House impeachment managers made their final opening arguments for President Donald Trump's removal from office on Friday.
  • Trump was impeached last month for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
  • On Wednesday, the impeachment managers, who act as prosecutors in Trump's Senate trials, gave a broad overview of the charges against him and the timeline of his alleged misconduct.
  • On Thursday, they turned their focus to his alleged abuse of power. On Friday, they targeted his alleged obstruction of Congress.

  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

This week, the Senate's impeachment trial against President Donald Trump began in earnest with opening arguments from House impeachment managers — who essentially act as prosecutors in the case — as to why the president should be removed from office.

Trump was impeached last month for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Both charges relate to his efforts to pressure Ukraine to launch politically motivated investigations against his rivals ahead of the 2020 election while withholding vital military aid and a White House meeting that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky desperately sought.

Trump is the third US president to be impeached. His trial officially began last week, and opening arguments started on Wednesday, with House impeachment managers presenting their case first.

On Wednesday, House Democrats laid out a broad yet detailed overview of the president's scheme to pressure Ukraine into acceding to his personal demands while freezing security assistance and dangling a White House meeting for Zelensky.

Impeachment managers gave the Senate, and the public, an intricate timeline of how Trump's efforts played out, and the lengths he went to conceal them until they were publicly revealed.

On Thursday — day two of opening arguments – House prosecutors began by discussing the constitutional grounds for impeaching Trump, and why his actions rise to the level of impeachable conduct. During the second half of the day, they turned their focus to Trump's alleged abuse of power and all the ways his conduct went astray of official US policy.

They drew on testimony from Trump's own officials who said his actions were "wrong," "inappropriate," and "improper."

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the lead House impeachment manager, ended the second day of opening arguments by skewering Trump for putting his own desires above those of the country: "The American people deserve a president they can count on to put their interest first."

On Friday, House managers shifted their focus to Trump's "unprecedented" obstruction of the impeachment inquiry.

The trial resumed around 1 p.m. ET.

C-SPAN and TV networks are relying on the Senate's live feed of the trial.

C-SPAN is airing the trial at cspan.org.

A summary of what happened on day 2 of opening arguments

Reuters

On the second day of opening arguments, House impeachment managers hammered President Trump for boxing Ukraine into a corner while allegedly abusing his power.

They also detailed the constitutional and legal precedent that they said supports Trump's impeachment and removal from office.

Impeachment manager Jerry Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, opened for the prosecution by detailing what he described as the "ABC's of high crimes and misdemeanors."

  • "Abuse of power."
  • "Betrayal of nation, particularly through foreign entanglements."
  • "Corruption, particularly corruption of elections."

"The framers believed that any one of these standing alone justified removal from office," Nadler said.

Lead House impeachment manager Adam Schiff appeared several times throughout the day to underscore what he said was the illegality of Trump's conduct.

"If the truth doesn't matter, we're lost," Schiff said in his closing arguments.



A summary of what happened on day 1 of opening arguments

Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, gave a broad overview of the timeline of the president's pressure campaign in Ukraine.

It centers around a July 25 phone call Trump had with Zelensky, during which he repeatedly pressed Zelensky to launch investigations targeting former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, over the latter's employment on the board of the Ukrainian natural-gas company Burisma Holdings.

Trump also asked Zelensky to look into a discredited conspiracy theory started by Russia suggesting Ukraine interfered in the 2016 US election.

But Schiff and the six other impeachment managers detailed that the phone call was just one data point in what turned out to be a months-long effort by Trump and his allies to leverage US foreign policy to bully Ukraine into acceding to the president's personal, political demands.

This $200 heated razor makes me feel like I'm getting a professional hot-towel shave in my own bathroom — here’s why it’s worth the price

  • Almost all men use some form of heat to make shaving easier and reduce irritation. Hot towels, running blades under hot water, and shaving in the shower are some of the most common techniques.
  • Gillette developed a $200 razor that delivers heat directly to your face while you're shaving. It has 5 blades, a warming bar with two heat settings, and FlexDisc technology to contour your face and neck. 
  • I usually prefer to shave with clippers or an electric razor, but I put the GilletteLabs Heated Razor to the test to see if it's worth the hype and the steep price tag — and it worked remarkably well.

From advanced face-contouring systems and multi-blade razors to soothing balms and moisturizing aftershaves, grooming companies are constantly working to come up with products that make shaving a more pleasant and comfortable experience. 

But one thing that almost all guys can agree on is that the most important thing to stave off irritation is heat. Hot towels, running blades under hot water, and shaving in the shower are just some of the tricks that help.

Former FBI agent Daniel Gonzales, who worked out of the San Diego field office before retiring to help the family members of 9/11 victims, was one of the principal law enforcement officers assigned to find a potential connection with the Saudi kingdom — a campaign now known as "Operation Encore," according to a joint investigation by The New York Times Magazine and ProPublica.

Amtrak's new trains are at 'significant risk' of being delayed thanks to poor management — and that could be terrible news for riders on its busiest line

Posted: 24 Jan 2020 10:08 AM PST

Amtrak AcelaKyodo News Stills via Getty Image

Amtrak failed to fill a key engineering position for its new Acela trains for six months, the railroad's inspector general found in a new report. That's just one example of managerial oversights that pose a "significant risk" of the $2.1 billion "Acela 21" project being delayed yet again, the nearly 30-page report found.

Amtrak's Acela — the United States' closest thing to true high-speed rail — is critical to the railroad's ambitious profitability goals. The new Acela 21 trainsets currently under construction are the company's largest single investment in its 49-year history, scheduled to begin service in 2021 and eventually replace the current Acela fleet that dates back two decades.

Although the actress and writer has confirmed that the show will not return for a third season, there are a handful of other series to watch if you need to quench your desire for more "Fleabag." Waller-Bridge's other two shows (the quirky comedy "Crashing" and the stylist spy thriller "Killing Eve") are full of her distinct style of darkly funny, incisive writing.

The 5 best and 5 worst airports in the US, ranked by food options

Posted: 24 Jan 2020 09:59 AM PST

denver international airport foodcourtShutterstock

Airports aren't exactly known for their restaurants, but some locations definitely have more eateries and better options than others. 

Recently, the travel site Wanderu released a list of the best and worst airports in the US, based on food selection.

The site looked at the 50 busiest airports in the US and used Yelp reviews to see how many restaurants each airport has. Eateries needed at least 20 Yelp reviews to be included in the data and Wanderu classified them as highly-rated if they scored above a three-star average on Yelp. 

From there, Wanderu ranked airports based on their total number of highly-rated restaurants. If any airport tied, they gave the edge to the one with fewer total restaurants, which meant they had a higher overall percentage of good food.

Read on to see which busy US airports had the best and the worst dining selections.

Coming in fifth place, Logan International Airport has a pretty great food selection.

Getty Images/Scott Eisen

Although Wanderu reported that this Boston, Massachusetts, airport only has 28 qualifying restaurants (which is on the lower side compared to many of the other airports on the list), it still came up in the top five because half of them were highly-rated. 

According to Yelp data, the best eatery in the airport is Shojo, a Chinese restaurant with a few locations throughout Boston. 

The stop features modern Asian cuisine and it opens at 5 a.m. for even the earliest travelers to have breakfast. It also stays open until 30 minutes before the last departing flight. 



Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has a number of stand-out restaurants.

With 48 qualifying restaurants, 15 of which are highly-rated, Arizona's Phoenix Sky Harbor is nearly leading the pack.

The airport offers a range of options including vegan fare, brunch food, and upscale meals. 

One spot you won't want to miss is The Refuge Coffee & Wine, which Yelp says is the top-rated restaurant in the airport. The spot serves up wine, coffee, brunch, and more. 



Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has almost 90 qualifying restaurants.

REUTERS/Tami Chappell

This Georgia-based hub has more restaurant choices than any other airport on Wanderu's list, and 18 of those are highly-rated.

It has 88 qualifying options, which range from cafe food to high-end eats.

Based on Wanderu's report, the airport's top-rated eatery is One Flew South, the first upscale dining experience in the Atlanta-based airport.

It's located near Concourse E and it serves up "Southernational" food that's inspired by world travels.

Just over a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow started sending out a newsletter of recommendations — restaurants, hair salons, recipes — to friends.

Those were the humble origins of Goop, the actress-turned-CEO's controversial wellness brand, now worth a reported $250 million. 

Under the mentorship of a venture capitalist, Paltrow built her blog into a website that publishes articles from "wellness practitioners" on alternative therapies, diets, fitness, skincare and more. The company also sells things, like a hairdryer for $249; a water bottle with a crystal in it for $80; a $1,590 dress; a $250,000 ticket to space

Now, Goop also runs annual wellness summits. For $2,500, ticket-holders get access to two days of talks with Paltrow and other celebrities (Olivia Wilde, Jessica Alba, and Busy Philipps appeared last year), a market of luxury goods, wellness classes, and treatments such as facials and vitamin injections.

This year is a big one for the company, with the launch of Goop At Sea (a $750 cruise across the Italian Riviera with hers truly) and a brick-and-mortar partnership with the make-up store Sephora. They're all building blocks to cement Goop's position as a major player in the $4.2 trillion wellness industry

But first: Netflix. The highly-anticipated behind-the-scenes series, "The Goop Lab," hit screens today, and it is just as Goopy as fans and critics had hoped.

There is plenty of fodder for Paltrow's critics, who have accused the former film star of elitism, quackery, and ignorance.

The vast majority of her team's experiences are only accessible to an elite crust of society (flying to Jamaica to take "magic" mushrooms; getting an "exorcism" from Julianne Hough's chiropractor; the luxury of a tailor-made diet).

Each episode starts with a disclaimer that this is entertainment, not advice. Even Paltrow's most vocal critics appreciated the gesture, but say a disclaimer is not enough to balance some of the more outlandish ideas, like extreme fasting and speaking to the dead.



In the first episode, Goop staffers go to a retreat in Jamaica to try "magic" mushroom therapy.

The team meet shamans who give them each large doses of psilocybin ("magic" mushrooms), and guide them through a trip.

Elise Loehnen, Goop's chief content officer, giggles and writhes around while one of her colleagues goes through "five years of therapy in five hours."

Paltrow, who stays home, says she has done MDMA once on vacation in Mexico, but suggests mushrooms might be a good way for her to tackle insecurities. 

The shaman tells viewers that even celebrities like Paltrow struggle with mental health issues and feeling insecure. 

"We're all human." 



The second episode sees Goopers take a trip to snowy Lake Tahoe for "cold exposure therapy."

Dutch "iceman" Wim Hof teaches a handful of Goop staffers different breathing techniques and exercises – first inside covered in blankets, then in the snow in their swimsuits. 

Some of Hof's techniques are accepted, but he's come under fire for claiming he has trained his body to withstand cancer and E. coli. 

Gwyneth stays home.
