    Trump has fulfilled only 10 of 38 promises in first 100 days

    Sure enough, the big trans-Pacific trade deal is toast, climate change action is on the ropes and various regulations from the Obama era have been scrapped.

    America's manliest industries are all competing for women

    Baby boomers are retiring in droves, vacating construction sites and body shops and 18-wheelers.
