    First Lady of the United States, Melania and her husband, Donald have ended their first international trip. While the president has given the media so much to talk about from dancing with swords in Saudi Arabia to shoving Montenegro’s Prime Minister, Melania has successfully managed to be the star of the trip – thanks to her fashion choices. From Saudi Arabia to Rome, Brussels to Israel and finally Italy, Melania Trump has proven that when it comes to style, she is one to respect. Though it took a trip across the globe to get that message out there, we think...

This is not a book for the faint of heart; rather, it celebrates every blinding stoop, lucky snag and talon-clench of the birds that kill to live.Describing a banking ferruginous hawk, all bunched talons, angled wings and flinty yellow glare, Mr. Dunne writes: “If ground squirrels have nightmares, this is what they look like.” The small, muscular falcons called merlins seem to be a favorite, to judge from the author’s descriptions of merlin flights near Cape May, N.J., during which “the...

    This may not make sense, but I truly believe I am not the only one who is being prodded by an inner self to put an end to the madness. The dream I had is convoluted, but my reaction to it when I a awoke is what matters. I found myself in a room where my IQ was being tested. The questions were vague, and my answers were even more so. It seemed like I finished the 25 question test in record time, so I used the allotted time remaining to skim over my answers to be sure I was...

    Culture Nazis have claimed another victory by shutting down a small business in Portland. The pop-up shop Kooks Burritos sold authentic Mexican food and that simply would not do. See, white people making tacos is “cultural appropriation” they say, and better to force the place out of business than put up with that. Kali Wilgus and LC Connelly are owners … were owners … of Kooks Burritos. They took a trip to Mexico to pick the brain of the local tortilla makers and brought their cooking secrets back to the states. “I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there...

    Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Fox Sports 1’s Jason Whitlock weighed in on his former employer ESPN’s declining viewership over recent years. Whitlock acknowledged that many people have been cord cutting over the years, but said some of the “animosity” towards ESPN is “their lurch to the left and injecting progressive victimology into the sports conversation,” which he noted is not a mentality taught in sports. Carlson then asked how the company’s employees feel about ESPN’s move to the left. According to Whitlock, conservative and moderate employees are “afraid” to express their traditional values. “I think a...

And if a pack of 1 to 2 meter (3 to 6 ft) long snakes working together wasn't enough to give you heart palpitations, they do it by hanging upside down from the roofs of caves. "After sunset and before dawn, some of the boas entered the passage that connected the roosting chamber with the entrance chamber, and hunted by suspending...
