  • Emily Infeld’s 4th-Place Finish at Beach to Beacon Is More Than a Comeback

    For the first time since February 2018, Emily Infeld embraced the hard effort of competing in a race. Paying no mind to the clock, she trusted the cues her body provided her as she continued to battle her way through the final hill all the way through the finish line at TD Beach to Beacon 10K on August 3. Just seven months after her last hip surgery, Infeld had the rush of racing again, a feeling that she missed. The 2015 world bronze medalist covered the 10K course in 32:39 as the fourth overall finisher and top American in Cape...
  • Can Baltimore PD pull off “the greatest comeback ever?”

    07/09/2019 4:30:55 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | July 9, 2019 | JAZZ SHAW
    Regular readers are well aware of the troubles that have been plaguing Baltimore, Maryland for many years now. Pervasive gang violence, an out of control murder rate, endemic poverty and government corruption have combined to leave Charm City in a terrible state. Some of the people on the front line of this crisis are the men and women of the Baltimore Police Department, who are working in a dangerous environment while dealing with challenges of their own, including fractured relations with the communities they serve and incidents of corruption that have eroded trust.Now, however, under the leadership of a new...

    Two days after her 21st birthday on May 25, 2018, Anastasia Soule was lying in an emergency room in New Orleans, Louisiana. She didn’t see it coming. And she definitely wasn’t prepared for what came next. Before things went south, the weekend was set to be the ultimate mother-daughter getaway. Soule, a senior studying economics and public policy at the University of North Carolina, had planned a vacation to New Orleans with her mom, opting for a few relaxed days exploring the Southern city instead of a rowdy trip with friends. But from the moment their plane landed on Thursday,...

    This one was a tale of two halves, and there was plenty of drama with four lead changes in the final three minutes. The Vikings took a 7-0 lead on their first offensive possession and the defense kept Drew Brees off rhythm in the first half. After the first quarter, Brees was 1-of-6 passing for three yards and a pick.

    The first NFL veteran combine came and went with no Tim Tebow. But the left-handed college football analyst could show up at the next one after extensive training with Tom Brady's quarterback coach. Per Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Tebow's been working with Tom House in Los Angeles for the past two years. House told Volin Tebow's improved greatly. "He went from being a little inaccurate and didn't throw a whole lot of spirals, to throwing very accurate and real good at spinning the ball," House said.

    Losing in 2014 may not mean you're out of politics for good—or even for more than a cycle. For Democrats, there were plenty of strong 2014 recruits who found themselves wiped out by the Republican wave last Tuesday night. But they may not be out of politics for long: A handful of Democratic candidates, both incumbents who were defeated and challengers who fell short, are already being talked about as future prospects and could be back on the ballot as early as 2016. "This was a wave, and I think it was also the product of turnout more than these...

    Stop the music. All the merriment over the California recovery may have been a bit premature. Tax revenues are way down this year in the Golden State, and this could throw the books back into the red. Not so Golden State Here is the sobering analysis released last week from the Rockefeller Institute of Government, which monitors state spending and revenues: "After four years of uninterrupted growth, states' tax collections saw a decline in the first quarter of 2014. Preliminary figures for the second quarter of 2014 indicate further declines in personal income-tax collections and possibly in overall state taxes."...

    The American ^ | 05/16/2013 | By Michael M. Rosen
    An unexpected glimmer of hope might cast a new light on the Golden State. It’s getting depressingly repetitive to keep writing about California’s problems, which are legion and seemingly intractable. But this time, I’m pleased to report on an unexpected glimmer of hope that might, just might, cast a new light on the Golden State. First, a catalog of our recent woes, which, as ever, revolve around businesses and middle- and upper-income individuals decamping for other states that don’t suffer from California’s high-tax, high-regulation infection. William Ruger and Jason Sorens of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University observe in...

    Gen. David H. Petraeus, long the most famous overachiever in the U.S. Army, is already on his way to a new career distinction: breaking the land speed record for rehabilitation from a scandal. It was only two weeks ago that Petraeus resigned from his job as director of the CIA after it became clear that his affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, couldn't be kept under wraps. The dust hasn't settled yet on the chaos kicked up by the FBI's discovery of the affair, touched off by Broadwell's jealousy of another woman who liked men in uniform. Did Petraeus allow...
  • Gallup poll shows Romney up 6; too large a gap for Obama comeback?

    Desert News ^ | 10/17/2012 | Jackie Hicken
    The latest Gallup seven-day tracking poll released Wednesday shows a jump in support for Mitt Romney, giving him a slightly wider lead over President Barack in the final weeks before Nov. 6. According to the latest poll, Romney leads Obama among likely voters, 51 to 45 percent. This is Romney's biggest lead since Gallup began tracking likely voters earlier in Oct., as well as his largest lead in the survey. Romney also leads among registered voters, 48 to 46 percent. The data in the survey is a rolling seven-day average through Oct. 16 and therefore does not reflect data from...

    "The victory of Ted Cruz in the Texas Republican Senate runoff primary means that the torch is being passed to a new generation of principled small government constitutional conservatives and that the 'let's make a deal' Republican Party of old will soon go the way of the Dodo bird. "Ted's nomination sent a strong signal that a new conservative Republican Party is being born and, by 2016, principled conservatives will replace most leaders in Congress and the Party at the national, state, and local levels. GOP leaders should 'ask not for whom the bell tolls -- it tolls for thee.'...

    It's all very disappointing. Based on polls, It appears Newt Gingrich is not likely to be the nominee. But why? He is (in my mind) the most qualified man in the country to be President. He's the most knowledgeable and articulate candidate and, without question, the best debater in either party. Everyone knows he would obliterate Obama in a debate. He has the best and boldest ideas to get this country back on track. And I think that he would, by his sheer brilliance, and ability to put forth a convincing argument, garner enough independents to vote for him to...

    If you are keeping score at home it’s Chrysler $12.5 billion, NBC $12 million, with a taxpayer loss of $133 billion. Oh, and the city of Detroit is just minutes away, literally, from being more broke than Greece. Look, I’m a sucker for marketing as much as the next guy, but I have a lot of friends who were rightly outraged by Chrysler’s political ad for the auto bailout that starred Clint Eastwood and aired at halftime on NBC during the Super Bowl. It was more than just the subverted boosterism for Obama that was outrageous. There were many levels...

    I wonder if three features of the race as it stands today aren't being a bit neglected: 1. Turnout: The Romney-Gingrich slugfest in Florida appears to have produced slightly fewer than 1.7 million voters in this year's primary. That's down by about 12 percent from the 1.94 million who voted in 2008. Not a good sign for the GOP in this key swing state, especially following a flat GOP turnout in Iowa and only a slight uptick in New Hampshire (also swing states). Both of those states have open primaries, so with no Democratic contest this year, in contrast to...

    Reports of the death of Minister of Welfare and Social Services Zevulun Orlev's bill to normalize communities in Judea and Samaria may have been exaggerated. Betzalel Smotrich of the ‘Regavim’ movement told Arutz Sheva, "On the contrary, the bill is gaining momentum. We have a majority of ministers and MKs who support Orlev's bill to normalize the outposts." "We are convinced that, in a week and half, we will prevail in the Ministerial Committee for Legislation and move to legislative proceedings in the plenum," he added. Orlev's bill would forbid eviction and demolition orders for Jewish communities in Judea and...

    Tunisia’s newly elected president on Monday called the country’s Jewish population to return to his country, The Associated Press reported. During a meeting with the country’s Grand Rabbi Haim Bittan, President Moncef Marzouki said that Tunisia’s Jews are full-fledged citizens and those who had left the country were welcome to return. Today, Tunisia has a Jewish population of only 1,500, but in the 1960s there were 100,000 Jews in the country. Most left following the 1967 Six Day War, but the emigration to Israel started in the 1050's. Most Tunisian Jews now live on the resort island of Djerba, near...
