    An "exceptional and rare" medieval treasure trove including more than 2,200 gold and silver coins has been found in France in what has been called a "remarkable" discovery by archaeologists. It's the kind of discovery archaeologists dream of. While investigating an area next to the former Benedictine monastery Cluny Abbey in eastern France, a research group came across a pile of medieval treasure. Photo: Alexis Grattier/University of Lyon II "It's an exceptional and extremely rare treasure," said Anne Flamman from France's National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). "We understood straight away that it was a unique discovery and I...

    BROWN COUNTY (WLUK) -- If you experience stop-and-go traffic heading to work or backups on your way home, you’re not the only one frustrated. Every community experiences traffic delays.

    Lawmakers put the finishing touches this week on military funding legislation that contains a provision that stands to significantly benefit Amazon. The amendment, Section 801 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), would help Amazon establish a tight grip on the lucrative, $53 billion government acquisitions market, experts say. The provision, dubbed the “Amazon amendment” by experts, according to an article in The Intercept, would allow for the creation of an online portal that government employees could use to purchase everyday items such as office supplies or furniture.

  • Study Says Tinder Enforces ‘Ancient’ Dating Behavior; Women Want Status, Men Want Looks

    A recent study of the behavior of Tinder users says the app allegedly reinforces “ancient mating behaviour” because -- shockingly -- women want high-status men and men want good-looking women. The Scotsman reports psychologists at the University of Aberdeen studied the Tinder behavior of 20-somethings and found that men wanted women who were physical attractive, while women sought out signifiers of status, such as “good career prospects, stability and intelligence.” Dr Mirjam Brady-Van den Bos said the results reveal “we haven’t really changed in all those millennia of evolution.” “Tinder is seen as a sophisticated but artificial way of meeting...

    Had to right this. And no, I didn't make a mistake. Here in fragrant Los Angeles there is a new scam sweeping the streets. It's all the rage man! What the scumbags do is get a picture of a little baby, post it on a piece of cardboard, and write on it that little FuFu doesn't have any money for a funeral. They also write rest in peace and all of that. Then said scumbags, there are usually about 3 or 4, walk thru the L.A. traffic that is stopped at the light and beg for funeral money for little...

    Bill O’Reilly claimed in an interview Tuesday that a recording exists of an “anti-Trump” lawyer offering money to a woman to accuse Donald Trump of sexual harassment during the presidential campaign. O’Reilly told Newsmax that a tape exists where a female attorney offers $200,000 to a woman to accuse Trump of sexual harassment before the election. He said, “It exists. We have urged the person who has the tape to hand it over to the U.S. attorney, because my investigative team believes there are three separate crimes on the audio tape.” O’Reilly added, “it’s related to my situation.” The former Fox...

    America’s elite quickly rebounded from the economic recession of 2008. Average workers, on the other hand, faced stagnating incomes and declining opportunities throughout the Obama presidency. In fact, the American middle-class has barely seen a pay raise in over fifteen years. No wonder there is a growing feeling in America that only the wealthy and connected can succeed, a sentiment candidate Donald Trump successfully capitalized on in 2016. Now, in an attempt to reverse these trends, President Trump and congressional Republicans are arguing that tax reform would jumpstart the American economy and provide Americans with a much-needed pay raise. While...

    They say that cash is king, but newer and more convenient payment methods are gunning for the crown. These days, more and more countries are adopting cashless payments, which includes credit card purchases, contactless payments, mobile banking apps and digital options like Apple Pay. To see which countries were adopting cashless the quickest, Forex, a global travel site, conducted a study comparing 20 of the world’s largest economies. In the report, Canada was singled out as the country most embracing cashless technology, which could be attributed to its population changing attitudes that began several years ago. A recent survey in...

    An old rule of thumb holds that when someone says it's not about the money, it's really about the money. But there are exceptions to almost every rule. The National Rifle Association is a case in point. In the wake of the horror in Las Vegas this week, countless politicians, journalists and commentators are insisting that the National Rifle Association has a "stranglehold" on the Republican Party. Hillary Clinton claimed that the GOP-controlled Congress simply does "whatever they are told to do" by the NRA and the gun lobby. The Washington Post and New York Times laid out splashy reports...

    One of the puzzles about the mass murderer in Las Vegas is the source of his money. His brother characterizes him as "very wealthy" and that "$100,000 is no big deal". His real estate holdings holdings have been estimated as worth several millions of dollars. He paid cash for his latest real estate, and gambled up to a million dollars a year, according to a real estate agent who dealt with him. From the dailymail.co.uk: The 64-year-old, who opened fire slaughtering 58 people at a country music festival at the weekend, bought his 2,000 sq ft home in Mesquite,...

    The National Football League is now plunged into politics as players throughout the sport kneel for the national anthem and President Donald Trump continues to rebuke them publicly. Undoubtedly, the situation has left many fans and non-fans of the league conflicted or angry. This fiasco may, however, open the eyes of the public to a serious and generally unchecked issue: billionaire NFL owners sponging enormous amounts of money from taxpayers through crony capitalist schemes. The fact is that a business that raked in $14 billion in revenue in 2016 is heavily subsidized by local, state, and federal money based on...

A public school superintendent in South Dakota was being investigated for an apparent “scam” involving local homeschoolers after he offered them a “free” laptop computer in exchange for their attendance in his district for a single day, according to the Home School Legal Defense Association. The Argus-Leader in Sioux Falls reported the “offer” from Tri-Valley School District Supt. Mike Lodmel was to homeschoolers, explaining he wanted the children to spend one day in public school “and go home with a new laptop.” The invitation was for Sept. 29,...

    Donald Trump took a lot of heat when he announced his candidacy for President, stating that he would build a border fence from San Diego to Brownsville and make Mexico pay for it, all to keep Mexico’s “unwanted” and “undesirables” from flooding the United States. In August 2015, on the campaign trail, he shed light on a flawed interpretation of the U.S. Constitution that has caused much of the problem of illegal immigration. That misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment, written to guarantee the citizenship rights of freed slaves after the Civil War, has morphed the amendment into a guarantee of...
