Nomadland, the Oscar winner directed by Chloé Zhao, has earned wide praise for its inclusion of real life nomads who travel the West in vans and RVs. It has also received criticism from people who wish it was tougher on Amazon, a corporate behemoth that appears prominently early in the film. If you're like many guys, it's not for lack of trying. You might be spending hours clicking profiles and messaging women on dating sites. You sometimes get a response, but rarely from anyone you actually want to date.
The Hamm's Beer bear was a cartoon mascot used in television production and print advertisements for the beer. The animated character was the first of its kind in the beer industry.  But wait, there's more ... By asking a simple-sounding question — What is the summit? — the researchers are raising doubts about past accomplishments and raising standards for future ones. Maybe they are making us all reconsider just what it means to reach the top. Of course, we’re all familiar with warning signs. We see them on the roads, in stores, and in many other public places. Most of the time they’re pretty standard-looking, but sometimes you’ll see warning signs that are out of the ordinary and even amusing. Rather than advising someone to sell shovels and pick axes during a gold rush, better advice from the San Francisco Gold Rush might be to import shovels from abroad. Or speculate in real estate. Or just work hard painting houses. Anything but mining for gold.
It didn't take me long to figure out that if you have something in your RV that you aren't using, and it is too good to just throw away, if you leave it the RV park laundry room, somebody else will grab it. I've found some great items over the years, and have left a lot of things I no longer needed. A doctor captures stunning photos of galaxies two million light-years away from his back. Syed Taha, 29, has captured Comet Neowise, nebulae, constellations, and galaxies as far as two million light-years away. The Da Vinci Code was a phenomenal success based on a conspiracy theory about a secret cult called the Priory of Sion, involving Jesus, Mary Magdalene, the Holy Grail, and the kings of France in a scheme create a Christian theocracy throughout Europe. But is it true? During the Inquisition, two Dominican friars published the book, Malleus Maleficarum (Hammer of Witches) promoting the idea that women are ievil and form pacts with the devil. The book incited church authorities to murder 60,000 victims for witchcraft in the 16th and 17th centuries.
1000 participants were asked to describe a secret they were keeping. These were then reviewed by a researcher, who manually created 38 broad categories into which these could fall. Each year, Texas’s Sweetwater Jaycees''the world’s largest rattlesnake roundup''begins with a rattlesnake parade. There’s also a Miss Snake Charmer pageant, a snake eating contest, and awards for the most snakes by weight and the longest snake in the show. Tombstone is a Western classic for good reason. Though many actors have solid performances within it, Val Kilmer's Doc Holliday is a standout role. Younger women marrying older men should know CPR. Or, maybe not.
Pablo Picasso's ''Woman sitting by a window'' sold recently for $103 million at Christie's in New York. Pretty amazing, when you consider that, as a young artist, he was forced to burn paintings to stay warm in freezing Paris. Schizophrenia has a major impact in many ways. People may talk and not make sense, or they make up words. They may be agitated or show no expression. Many have trouble keeping themselves or their homes clean, like doing dishes. If you want your clock to be as accurate as possible, you have to go for an atomic wall clock. Atomic clocks, sometimes called radio-controlled clocks, pick up the signal of the National Institute of Standards and Technology's atomic clock from a radio transmitter in Fort Collins, Colorado. A program created after 9/11 to protect the flying public is being abused by Congress, according to an association representing federal air marshals, essentially creating, in their words, a VIP ''concierge service'' for members.
Publix's chicken tender sub is actually known across Florida and most of the surrounding southern states as being a legend of a sandwich. Maxi-Mag is considered to be one of the most accurate 22 WMR cartridges currently available on the market. The jacketed hollow-point design of the bullet allows the projectile to transfer nearly all of its energy into the target upon impact. When blacks were just one generation out of slavery, the census data of that era showed that slightly higher percentage of black adults had married than had white adults. A young woman has attracted a huge audience on TikTok after sharing words of wisdom from her protective father—who happens to be a Secret Service agent. One of his lessons, she claims, saved her life.
Maxine Waters (Democratic Party) is a member of the U.S. House, representing California's 43rd Congressional District. She assumed office in 1991. Her current term ends on January 3, 2023. What started as a fun little challenge quickly grew to a global phenomenon. Now, people from around the world are keeping tabs on the battle. We might never know the true origin of this deadly game, but we can assume it is most likely much more widespread than we initially thought. It is possible to live in airports because they do offer many of the basic amenities needed for survival: food, water, bathrooms and shelter. And while airport operations do not necessarily run 24/7, airport terminals often open very early in the morning and stay open until very late at night.
The warehouse stored more than 50 million pounds of food, including cheese, Oscar Mayer meats, and Swiss Colony products. The buildings that burned contained 10 to 15 million pounds of government surplus butter, If you have no life, but want to see if your favorite movie, television, or political personalities do, this is the website for you. The 1960s Great Society and War on Poverty programs of President Johnson have been a colossal failure. One might make the argument that social welfare programs are the moral path for a modern government. They are not, in any way, effective at alleviating poverty. Show your mom how much you care by impressing her with some fun facts about the history and first celebration of Mother's Day, like these.
The animals with the most attacks and fatalities, by far, have been bison. While bears maul their victims, bison gore them. They have also been known to attack cars, and in a few cases flipping them over. In 2012, a Rochester Institute of Technology graduate skyrocketed into fame while providing American Sign Language interpretation during New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s nationally watched news conferences. The video takes place at San Francisco International Airport, with the planes use two sets of intersecting parallel runways 28L and 28R, and 1R and 1L. The landing strips are 750 feet apart, so tandem arrivals and departures are frequent at the airport. Black Lives Matter isn’t about black lives. It ignores the 8,000 to 9,000 black lives taken by other blacks every year in minority communities across the nation. Those black lives, and the lives of African American police officers, don’t matter.
Many German words are untranslatable, hard to find a direct translation for, including this word: ''Morgenmuffel''. According to the Department of the Interior, they are concerned about the growth of the bison herd on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the impact on park resources such as water, vegetation, soils, and archaeological sites. The owner of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf, formed a foundation, and when he passed away in 1960, control went to five trustees who give the profits, after expenses, to an unknown number of charitable causes. The plan was to use thousands of the nocturnal creatures fitted with bombs and dropped over Japan during the day, safe in the knowledge they would seek out the dark loft spaces of homes which were mostly made from wood and paper.
Wright's planned long criminal career was shortened when he was accidently shot by police while attempting to escape during an arrest for failing to appear in court. He'd been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery, fleeing from police, and possession of a handgun without a permit. Blacks constituted 62 percent of all robbery defendants in America's 75 largest counties in 2009, 57 percent of all murder defendants and 45 percent of all assault defendants, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, even though blacks comprise only 15 percent of the population in those counties. Major League Baseball’s decision to move its all-star game out of Atlanta is more evidence that the 2020 election was compromised. Otherwise, Democratic Party officials and operatives wouldn’t have targeted MLB and big Atlanta-based corporations after Georgia’s Republican-controlled legislature passed a law limiting future opportunities for election fraud. Ladies, your bodies are built to run. Your bra should be too. Just tell this company what you like — and don’t like, and they'll find your perfect match.
You know you're from Minnesoota when you're at gatherings and say ''goodbye'' to everyone, then leave 3 hours later. Known as ''The Minnesoota Goodbye''. For example, in January, 2007, when Biden announced his presidential bid, the Delaware Senator was roundly criticized for calling Obama ''the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man.'' Only an occasional motorcade or a van of reporters glided up or down the streets of the lake-and-tree-covered subdivision of North Oaks, Minnesota. The suburb is so preoccupied with security that the entire 5,100-acre subdivision is private property. Even the streets are owned by a property owners association, with signs warning that all except residents are trespassers. As Black Lives Matter and Antifa groups nationwide have been burning and looting cities the 82-year-old degenerate representative Waters called on the mobs to be ''more confrontational''.
Bereavement is not linear. It takes multiple forms at different times in one’s life. It is influenced, among other things, by the strength of our attachment to the lost loved one and how central he or she was to our lives. Bereavement never really ends. Social ostracism has been a common punishment for millennia. But freezing someone out harms both the victim and the perpetrator. Slim might be in elsewhere but for Ethiopia’s Bodi or Me’en people, bigger is always better. The tribe, which lives in a remote corner of Ethiopia’s Omo Valley, is home to an unusual ritual which sees young men gorge on cow’s blood and milk in a bid to be crowned the fattest man. Around 25 years ago, a Montana truck driver by the name of Bill Sprout got a rather unique call that brought him right into the middle into one of the most unique and largest crime stories in the state of Montana—the arrest of Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber, at his cabin in Lincoln.
The pilot assumed he had been the victim of a bird strike, but the accident investigation revealed another cause: In his fast descent, the pilot had actually flown into his own stream of 20-millimeter cannon rounds. The particular phenomenon Nomadland explores seems to have sprung up after the Great Recession of 2008, much like the Okies in The Grapes of Wrath hit the road during the Great Depression of the ’30s. Lacking a safety net, these people do what they gotta do to live another day. Originally country music shared structural similarities with folk tales. The performances were usually live and the songs and instrumentation would vary depending on the geographical location. Listening to traditional country music allowed one to learn about the history and culture of that area. Martha Gellhorn reported on virtually every major world conflict that took place during her 60-year career. She was the third wife of American novelist Ernest Hemingway, the only one to ask him for a divorce.
Your cat (or dog) knows something you don't. Napping is incredibly beneficial for the body and mind, and not just animals are privy to this. Europeans have long been fans of siestas, many influential politicians have championed a midday snooze and now forward-thinking tech giants like Google have installed sleep pods at their offices. The particulars of Georgia’s voting law are so banal upon examination that it’s hard to avoid concluding the speed displayed by the press in its effort to disseminate misinformation was a tactic. Twin Beds in 30 seconds! Both front seat backs recline to fill space between front and rear seats, creating roomy Twin Beds for hunters, fishermen—everyone who travels. What you might not have known then is that Mary Anning was arguably the greatest fossil hunter of them all In Victorian England. In an era of amateur scientists, fossil hunters were nearly always men.
The internet is full of websites offering theories about how Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died in 2016. Don't worry, the ''DuckDuckGo'' search engine does not save anything, so the government spooks won't know you looked. Or, so they say. The holiday is about much more than a celebration of spring. The Rev. Rick Joyner is a famous evangelical leader who has called on Christians to arm themselves for an inevitable civil war against liberals, whom he suggests are allies of the devil. The executive actions Biden has taken in the first days of his administration include halting funding for the construction of Trump’s border wall, reversing Trump’s travel ban targeting largely Muslim countries, imposing a mask mandate on federal property, ramping up vaccination supplies and requiring international travelers to provide proof of negative Covid-19 tests prior to traveling to the United States.
Before being chosen, jurors were asked their opinions about George Floyd, Derek Chauvin, police, racial discrimination and last summer's protests. If you feel an evil sort of glee at the slip-ups of another, are you a bad person? Just about all of us experience schadenfreude at some point in our lives. The world celebrates April Fool's Day by pranking each other, making false announcements on the internet, and other such tomfoolery. But, we Christians Know the true meaning of the holiday, as we somberly recall the brutal martyrdom of St. April O'Fool in 723 A.D. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., is under investigation by the Department of Justice over whether he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl and paid her to travel with him, sources told the New York Times.
Russian President Vladimir Putin challenged President Biden to a debate after Joe called him ''a killer''. ''It takes one to know one,'' Putin responded. ''We always see our own traits in other people and think they are like how we really are.'' During WWI, a group of 12 people undertook the journey of a lifetime. A 5,000 mile, 76-day loop which can aptly be described as ''a lariat lassoing the scenic wonders of the west''. These scenic wonders were the 13 national parks that were currently in existence at that time. William Shatner's most famous role is James Tiberius Kirk in Star Trek. His beloved portrayal as the captain of the Enterprise has made him one of sci-fi's biggest icons, so it's pretty shocking to hear that the man has now revealed he's never actually seen the show that turned him into a star. These are Omakase strawberries, a varietal previously found only in the foothills of the Japanese Alps in winter. They have twice as much sugar content as the average American strawberry, an airier texture, and unexposed seeds. They are creamy, and also profoundly aromatic.
Stare at the girl's nose for 30 seconds, then look at a blank wall, the ceiling, or a blank white screen.. Biden administration's message: Don't come now. Come next week. We can give you more stuff. Denny Crane is a legendary lawyer and named law firm partner, who, by his own admission, suffers from what he calls ''Mad Cow Disease'', and it causes him to get into the most unbelievable situations, usually involving women. What might be the most popular column in the Estero Bay, California newspaper is the Police Blotter.
American pistachios contain significant amounts of melatonin, much higher than other fruits, vegetables, cereals, legumes, and seeds. Why is this important? SLEEP! Listen to Limerick City Community Radio, playing Irish music all day. Everyone wants someone who is approachable and smiling is the cheapest way to do that. If you are older, say 70, don't post a photo taken when you were 60, and date your photos so your prospects know these are reasonably current photographs. Well, we could have predicted this, turns out that the covid-19 virus can be spread by farting.
The author of this New York Times op-ed piece is a compliete idiot who has 1st Amendment rights, but if you question his wisdom you are a racist. Get it? Mountain Dew is a refreshing soft drink that is particularly popular with kids. However, the inventors of Mountain Dew actually intended it to be an alcoholic mixer that could be paired with a variety of different spirits. Many of these facilities opened under President Barack Obama, leading Trump to ask Biden in a debate, ''Who built the cages, Joe?'' But the media blamed it all on Trump, who found a better way, working with Mexican and Central American governments to stem the tide of illegal immigration. Agreements Biden has unilaterally junked. The Chief Joseph Ranch, in honor of the Nez Perce chief and his journey through the property. Today, the ranch serves as the home of the fictional Dutton Ranch on Paramount Network's TV series ''Yellowstone''.
The system was tested every Saturday. But on that Saturday in 1971, a real message, not a test message, came over the special teletype network that sat inside every radio and TV station. ''Message authenticator: hatefulness, hatefulness'', it read. ''This is an emergency action notification (EAN) directed by the President. Normal broadcasting will cease immediately.'' The Canadian passport has potentially earned the unexpected distinction of being the coolest passport to pull out at a rave. The pages of the new passport (released in mid-2013) are covered in fun and colorful UV-reactive hidden images that can only be seen under a blacklight. Governor Cuomo was at the forefront of America's reckoning with the COVID-19 pandemic. He became a global celebrity, he wrote a book about his leadership prowess, then accepted an Emmy Award. And, he still found time to sexually harass his female subordinates.  If you were to believe the controlled mainstream media, you might believe that white supremacy is a growing and imminent threat to our society, that neo-Nazis hide around every corner, and that blacks and other minorities live in fear of persecution.
Delta has told its pilots it plans to have them all back to flying status by October to get ready for a return to more normal operations. At Kingman Air Force Base in Arizona, 5,500 aircraft were stored and scrapped after the war. Many vehicles were sold for metal and parts, others were repurposed for civilian use. Americans were so eager to get their hands on cheap Jeeps that auto companies urged the government to leave them overseas, fearing they would cut into new car sales. If you plan on visiting any National Parks this year, Yellowstone is a perfect place to start. The author tells you how you can see the best attractions in as little as 2 days in the park. If you prefer moving at a slower pace, include camping or hiking, you might want to spread out the itinerary to 3 or 4 days. In 1954, the United States Federal Civil Defense Agency instituted an exercise called Operation Alert, a civil defense drill that took place on the same day in major cities. Citizens were required to take cover for fifteen minutes. Civil defense officials tested their readiness and their communications systems, and federal officials practiced evacuating from the capital.
In an almost-true story of older Americans living in their vans, Frances McDormand plays a woman who is both free spirit and labor-market refugee.  An inspiring film that is not to be missed. 2021 will bring the 10th anniversary of the popular uprising that began Syria's civil war. The Syrian dictator, Bashar al-Assad, has gassed the innocent, bombed hospitals and schools, and made thousands disappear. Sadly, Assad and his regime may never be prosecuted for the acts of terror he perpetrated against his own people. An old joke, but a serious article about the science of PMS, and some advice for men on how to be more compassionate to their partners during this time. Origami is an awe-inspiring Japanese artform that uses a single square piece of paper to create everything from paper cranes to little boats that float. But one artist from Finland is taking his origami creations to the next level with incredibly intricate figurines created from just a single sheet of paper.
In the modern era, the question of awakening the president has the potential to be a political issue, as the famous 2008 Hillary Clinton 3 a.m. television commercial suggested. China is using a coronavirus diagnostic tool: anal swabs. The test involves a patient bending over, putting one hand on the back of a nearby surface, and using the other to spread their cheeks apart while the doctor or nurse inserts a saline-soaked cotton swab one-to-two inches inside their rectum and swirls it to collect a sample. Did Investigators Solve The Pan Am Flight 914 Mystery of 1955? The story was reported exclusively in ''The Weekly World News'', a newspaper that published fictional news to attract readers. Hey, wait a minute ... rs. Biden ran a stop sign. A terrible event, but Joe's story about how the truck driver ''drank his lunch''  got better with each retelling over the years, ruining the life of the innocent truck driver.
A U.S. House commission is currently studying remedies, including compensation and education of the American public, on the legacy of slavery. In 1865 the idea was floated about giving each freed slave ''40 acres and a mule''. The price has gone up considerably since that idea, and could be several hundred thousand dollars per person. In 2011, many long-haul flight times were dramatically reduced as planes were allowed to take a short cut over the North Pole. Changes in aviation rules, which apply to twin-engine jets such as a Boeing 777 and 787, meant  passengers could reach exotic destinations without making a stop, and during the flights be treated to stunning views of the Arctic. Newly declassified documents reveal that in November 1983, at the height of Cold War tensions, the United States and the Soviet Union came closer to nuclear war than historians, and even many officials at the time, have known until now. Pilots have their own secret language. here's what they're really saying. Do you know who ''George'' is? He's up there with the regular pilots, and is flying the plane.
After you've had your Covid vaccine, you'll want to subscribe to the Metro Weekly, who published this article. It provides LGBTQ news coverage for existing homosexuals and those who've just discovered they're gay after getting the shot. Ahh ... Just the nose and mouth, Mr. President. Known as the 'Cadaver Synod' , the posthumous trial of Pope Formosus resulted from the chaos of the ninth century as factions battled for control of the church. For the new breed of teachers, Shakespeare is seen less as an icon of literature and more as a tool of imperial oppression, an author who should be dissected in class or banished from the curriculum entirely.
Yellowstone's 'Zone of Death': The 50-square-mile district in Idaho where 'you can get away with murder' because it has no people and no one to sit on a jury. In an interview, Judy Carnes said, ''I’m a 1960s flowerchild who has refused to grow up,'' she once said,  ''Mature and responsible are words I don’t understand.'' . Polls show that white people rarely think about race and non-white people spend a lot of time thinking about it and they think about it in different ways. This imbalance creates a hostile environment that leave non-white people raging and white people either scared or indifferent. Because in their eyes, for non-white people it's 'always' about race. And perhaps it is. A cell phone app that’s flown under the radar for even die-hard music lovers. Radio Garden is a free app for iPhones and Android devices that brings in tens of thousands of radio stations broadcasting live 24 hours a day.
Yellen has been paid $7.2 million in speaking fees since 2019 by a long list of corporations, including many major banks and investment firms. One of them is Citadel, from which she got $810,000 for two speeches and a series of ''webinars''. What would Wilfred Brimley say about all of this? Why do so many people believe that Michelle ''Michael'' Obama is a biological man? the late Pierre Salinger, Kennedy and Johnson's press secretary, was said to believe everything he read on the internet, and would have loved this story. The last B-52 rolled off the assembly line in October 1962, but has been given a new lease of life by the Pentagon in what some predict will be a new Cold War against the twin threats of China and Russia.
The Wisconsin pharmacist who intentionally sabotaged hundreds of doses of the Moderna coronavirus vaccine because he thought COVID-19 was a hoax, also believes the earth is flat and the sky is actually a ''shield put up by the Government to prevent individuals from seeing God''. The 79-year-old Vermont senator became the toast of social media after being pictured in a low-key parka and multicolored hand-knit mittens during President Biden’s inauguration. Before Covid-19 hit, there had been widespread pilot shortages that had driven up demand for aviators and led to improving pay and conditions. Now, according to a survey, 82% of unemployed pilots would take a pay cut for a new opportunity. According to the former Dr. Richard Levine, who now goes by Rachel, she knew she wanted to be a girl, and said she had a midlife crisis during her 40s and began seeing a therapist. ''What is comes down to is I decided to live my life with no secrets ... with no fear.''
The Peters Projection world map is one of the most stimulating, and controversial, images of the world. When this map was first introduced by historian and cartographer Dr. Arno Peters at a Press Conference in Germany in 1974 it generated a firestorm of debate. The first English-version of the map was published in 1983, and it continues to have passionate fans as well as staunch detractors. The world knew almost immediately about the eruption of Mount Krakatoa in 1883 because of the telegraph. But, in 1815, another volcano in the Pacific Ocean was much bigger and did much more damage. A friend of mine admitted he hadn't read any of the emails I sent him recently. So, I put him in ''Email Jail'' and didn't send him another one for several days. Then, reason set in, and I realized I was the guy who should be in that cell. Roll out of bed, hop into your plane, and head straight to the airport. All without leaving your neighborhood.
This article was written before Antifa, Black Lives Matter More Than White Lives, and defunding of the police made the city darn-near uninhabitable. This frozen waffle hack is ridiculously simple, yet totally ingenious. Surprisingly, there's no toaster involved, despite the directions printed on the box from literally every pre-made waffle company advising otherwise. Africa is larger than the combination of China, the United States. Western Europe, India, Argentina, three Scandinavian countries and the British Isles. ''Just do as I say, and nobody gets hurt.''
Can we celebrate a holiday without symbols? No more corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day? Martin Luther King, Jr. may have indeed loved fried chicken, but would he choose it today to empower his people? According to the author, Dr. King was a profoundly dishonest charlatan who regularly associated with criminals, traitors, and other deviants, both for reasons of personal gratification and as part of a quest to destroy White America. Richard Nixon didn't want his re-election event ruined by a bunch of pigeon poop all over the place, so he paid $13,000 for a repellent that was supposed to make them fly away. Instead, it killed them, and there were dead birds everywhere. When you believe everything you read on the internet, you are said to have ''Pierre Salinger Syndrome''. Salinger was convinced that TWA flight 800 was accidently shot down by the U.S. Navy, because of articles he read on the internet.
Gawker had been a zombie site since the summer of 2016, after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy following a lawsuit brought by Terry Bollea, the wrestler known as Hulk Hogan. The site had published a sex tape of Hogan and his friend's wife. Boys growing up in Minnesota in the 1940's and 1950's knew about Polka King ''Whoopee John Wilfahrt'', and so did all of their fathers. Even though Biden knew many of these people would be murdered for helping us during the war, he opposed any financial aid to get them out of the country. In 1933, titans of banking and business decided to overthrow the U.S. government and install a dictator who was more business friendly than Franklin Roosevelt. After all, they reasoned, that had been working well in Italy.
A supervillain, an assassin, a mountain car chase and an Aston Martin equipped with gadgetry -- the Alpine scenes in 1964's ''Goldfinger'' set a new benchmark for the archetypal James Bond sequence. An ad-lib from the late comedian John Candy saw the comedy Planes, Trains, and Automobiles taking on a sadder context. As Candy ad-libs a line confessing he has no home, and the wife he'd been talking about the whole film had been dead for eight years, he memorable twist leads to a re-written ending, and a long lasting effect on Steve Martin. Love his commercials, or hate them, Mike Lindell has shown Americans that anyone can become a success if they have a goal and work hard to achieve it. Best-selling author and radio talk-show host Larry Elder has a take-no-prisoners style, using such old-fashioned things as evidence and logic.
While the game of tic tac toe may appear simple, that is deceptive. How to win the game requires strategic thinking and planning to win the game or force a draw. Every New Year’s Eve, after the champagne has been popped, the ball has dropped, and everyone is feeling very merry indeed, revelers queue up the same song they’ve been queuing up for decades. Samuel Little confessed to 93 murders, mostly women who he thought would never be missed. Little, who had health problems, died in prison in 2020 of natural causes at age 80,  In 430-429 BC, Athens was devastated by a mysterious epidemic. Tens of thousands of people died, perhaps as many as one-third of Athenians.  Society was ravaged, and the military, which was in the early stages of a brutal twenty-seven-year war against Sparta, was debilitated for many years. The catastrophe contributed to Athens’s shattering defeat, in 404 B.C. by the Spartans, and the end of their democracy.
Hemisphere is a secretive program run by AT&T that searches trillions of call records and analyzes cellular data to determine where a target is located, with whom he speaks, and potentially why. That teenage bully who was the terror in your high school grew up and he just got better at it. Either we have cured ''the flu'', or the case and death numbers, for financial and other reasons, are being rolled into the current Covid-19 outbreak. There are reasons banks pushed forward with ATMs, including not having to lengthen banking hours, reducing congestion in bank branches, postponing or even eliminating the need to open new branches while still maintaining a physical presence, and, of course, cutting labor costs.
It Was A Skid Row Christmas: Feeding some of the 50,000 Homeless in Los Angeles. With Thanksgiving behind us and the turkey consumed, we all look forward to the greatest time of year: Christmas! Could the bombing be the result of a recent revelation that AT&T has been spying on the American people and selling the information to the government? Winston Churchill is widely considered to be one of the greatest speakers of the 20th century. Among his most famous speeches were those in 1940 when Churchill rallied a nation with his words and optimism.
Dusk is a period of time, whereas Sunset is an event. In other words, dusk is a process by which day becomes night and sunset is the specific point where the sun drops below the horizon and out of view. Dec. 19 - More snow - couldn't get out of the driveway to get to work in time. I'm exhausted from all of the shoveling. And that snowplow!  Mummering, or mumming, is a Christmas-time house-visiting tradition practiced in Newfoundland, Ireland and parts of the United Kingdom. Also known as mumming or janneying, it typically involves a group of friends or family who dress in disguise and visit homes within their community or neighboring communities during the twelve days of Christmas. Four out of 45 US presidents have been assassinated over the course of American history.  But many more chief executives escaped assassination attempts thanks to heroic bystanders, diligent guards, misfiring pistols, and crazy luck.
What a bunch of ingrates. 20 Most Dangerous Places For Gay Travelers, And The 5 Safest. (Nigeria is definitely the most dangerous, the penalty for being a homosexual can be death.) In every election year there is  a shortage of ammo or prices skyrocket. When the incumbent is a Republican, there is a rush to buy ammo before the election. Fear of a Democrat winning and then favoring gun control leads to increased ammunition purchases. I'll bet you had no idea that there are 4 regular flashlight batteries inside one of those big 6 volters. What other products have hidden secrets?
