  • Archie Harrison: The meaning behind the royal baby's name

    BBC ^ | May 2019 | Francesca Gillett
    Archie means "genuine", "bold" or "brave" - and is more popular in Britain than the US. It was originally a shortened form of Archibald but is now often used as a name on its own. And, rather fittingly, Harrison - a name which was originally used as a surname - means "son of Harry". Mountbatten-Windsor is the surname which was created in 1960, combining the surnames of the Queen and Prince Philip when they married. The double-barrelled name was a concession to the Duke of Edinburgh, who was said to have complained that his children would not bear his name....

    New polling following the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida indicates incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson is in serious jeopardy of losing his seat to Republican challenger Gov. Rick Scott in November. According to Quinnipiac University, 46 percent of Floridians surveyed between February 23–26 would vote for Nelson, and 42 percent would vote for Scott, but the poll’s additional data points suggest the gap is closing in favor of Scott. Most notably, Scott posted a net 49–40 percent approval rating. Not only does this mark an all-time high, but it is also the first positive approval rating Scott has scored in...

    CHULA VISTA, Calif. – A sweet act of kindness was caught on camera, and a Chula Vista mother is hoping to find out who the boy is that left Halloween candy at her doorstep for others to take. Kim Manalo and her family left a bowl of candy out while she took her kids trick or treating on Halloween night. After coming home to an empty candy bowl, Kim immediately thought the worst. "Once we got around the block the bowl was empty. I wasn't too surprised but I was hoping it wasn't one kid or an adult," said Manalo....

    Monday in San Francisco, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was forced to leave her DREAMer press conference after being shouted down by protesters who said they are undocumented and unafraid. After over 20 minutes of chants, the protestors chanted “you have the audacity to tell us you have been fighting deportation.” Pelosi shot back “Yes, I am.” The group began chanting, “You are a liar.” She responded, “You don’t know what you are talking about.” The crowd continued chanting, “You are a liar.”

    President Trump on Tuesday all but promised to pardon Joe Arpaio, the hard-line former sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., who became a national symbol of the campaign against undocumented immigrants, and whose round-’em-up raids have landed him in legal trouble. “I’ll make a prediction — I think he is going to be just fine,” an angry and defiant Mr. Trump told a campaign-style forum in Phoenix where he abandoned scripted remarks and launched into a half-hour tirade against the news media. “But I won’t do it tonight because I don’t want to cause any controversy.” “But Sheriff Joe can feel...

    What began as a wrong text from an Arizona grandmother to a 17-year-old ended in a heartwarming story. Wanda Dench thought she was texting her grandson when she sent out details about Thanksgiving dinner, KSAZ reports But instead, 17-year-old high school senior Jamal Hinton got the random message while in class. Jamal texted back asking who it was, and Dench responded with: "It's your grandma." Jamal asked for her picture "just to double check." Dench responded with a photo of herself. Jamal then sent her a photo of himself to establish that they were not related. But he figured he'd...

    This would likely be an easier column to write if I were more familiar with the life and work of Beyonce’, but even I know that she’s a very popular singer with significant music sales and well attended concerts. In terms of the latter revenue stream, events of that magnitude always require security staff on hand to keep the rowdy fans under control and that’s a thriving business in America. What’s less often discussed is the fact that off duty police officers frequently take such jobs and do their moonlighting work with the full blessing of their bosses. It’s not...

    A man's quest to overcome his fear of rejection by making at least one crazy request a day for 100 days was throttled last week when a Krispy Kreme employee accepted his order for five doughnuts linked together in the colors and shape of the Olympic symbol. "It's only my third day and I have already failed," Jia Jiang wrote on his 100 Days of Rejection Therapy blog. "But I did so with such amazement and happiness." When the 31-year-old approached the register to make his "specialized" doughnut order, Jackie Braun, a shift leader at an Austin, Texas, Krispy Kreme,...
  • Law Would Prevent Parents From Giving Kids 'Weird Names'

    A new law proposed by MK Zvulun Orlev (Bayit Yehudi), who is chairman of the Knesset Children's Rights Committee, would prevent parents from giving their children “weird” or strange names that other children were likely to make fun of. The law would forbid parents from naming their children with names that “hurt their welfare or their feelings.” The law, to be presented Sunday for the approval of the Ministerial Law Committee, would establish a “public names committee” which would include experts such as social workers, psychologists, and educators, that would confer with the relevant government ministries on “unacceptable” names that...

    Though not very well known in the United States, at least until the past few years, the miracle fruit is a cranberry like fruit that has the unique property of being able to make acidic or bitter foods taste sweet. And while the protein that makes this possible has been known for quite a while, just how exactly it did its trick has been a mystery; until now. A team of Japanese and French researchers working together have solved the puzzle and have published the results of their efforts in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Miracle fruit,...
  • Europe's Debt Woes Pose Opportunities for China

    09/22/2011 5:59:48 PM PDT · by AfricanChristian · 2 replies
    Beijing officials reaffirmed China's commitment to the euro currency and the European economy as uncertainty grows over whether E.U. officials can quickly recover from their debt crisis. In a statement to reporters, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said he hopes Europe has the ability and wisdom to overcome its debt crisis and ensure the safety of Chinese investments. Approximately 25 percent of China's huge $2.8 trillion foreign exchange reserves are invested in euro-dominated assets, making Beijing vulnerable if the currency declines. While some analysts say China must stay the course despite deepening crisis in member states such as Italy and...
