    Former President Barack Obama will release the first volume of his memoir Nov. 17, two weeks after Election Day. The 768-page book, “A Promised Land” will cover the 44th president’s historic rise to the White House and first term in office. “I’ve spent the last few years reflecting on my presidency, and in ‘A Promised Land’ I’ve tried to provide an honest accounting of my presidential campaign and my time in office: the key events and people who shaped it; my take on what I got right and the mistakes I made; and the political, economic, and cultural forces that...

    After my husband was commissioned, we were assigned to Fort Rucker, Alabama. We moved our mobile home from Michigan and lived in Tiara Park, the mobile home park on post; it was a nice quiet place with nice people and a friendly community. Soon, My husband was deployed to Egypt. That fall, I was alerted by Military Police pounding on the door. There was a strong tropical storm heading this way and all the residents in the park had to take shelter in the installation gymnasium. Already it had been raining hard and there was lots of water on the...

    On Thursday, former San Francisco quarterback and multi-millionaire racial activist Colin Kaepernick posted a message in support of violent rioting in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after an officer knelt on his neck during his arrest, as shown in a viral video. According to Kaepernick, “civility” is leading to “death,” which means “the only logical reaction” is to “revolt.” “When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” Kaepernick posted to Twitter on Thursday. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears,...

    Baby Boomers... these things were never cool. No, it's time to accept that these choices were mistakes and move on to make better choices from now on. We know that some of these will be shocking and hard for you to accept. You may be angry... Just know, even if you disagree, you are still wrong. Today, we're going to (mostly) overlook the big things and, instead, focus on the more mundane mistakes that plague every generation after (baby boomers) CURSIVE Cursive doesn't actually help. While it may look pretty, it's honestly an outdated waste of time. Surely there's got...

With no buzzy premieres or press events on their calendars for the time being, these stars are skipping makeup in favor of letting their natural beauty shine through — and they’re sharing it all on social media.

    Good news! I take it upon myself to identify good news in crises, since the mainstream media almost always overlooks good news. Like when Ebola went away, they simply quit reporting. I haven't had much good news to report since South Korea largely conquered the Coronavirus, COVID-19. Around a week ago, it looked like we were starting to see some flattening of the curve in the U.S., but then the number of positive tests exploded, probably simply because the number of tests exploded. We may be starting to see some real flattening, but a local explosion in the New York...

    I have a relative coming in from another state to stay with me. I am at risk and have been isolated. How do I introduce him into the home, 2 week quarantine? In Garage? Cannot find a camper. Ideas?? I have no real way to have him come into the house and quarantine from me. There are no options. Live in northern new England. I have a two car garage attached to the house, but it is cold and drafty. I thought of borrowing a big tent and putting it in the garage to give it some space, and room....

    What if we compared the mortality rate of influenza and coronavirus using only confirmed cases (no estimates)? People seem to like to use a ~0.1% mortality rate for seasonal flu when comparing it to coronavirus. This 0.1% figures includes all of the estimated influenza cases in the US, using modeling, which dramatically lowers the mortality rate. The same modeling/estimating is never applied to coronavirus. What happens when we only use confirmed cases for each and eliminate the models and estimates for total cases? Per the CDC the number of CONFIRMED seasonal flu cases this year in the US is 222,552...

    Here's a tricked out AK47, inspired by the Russian Counter-Terrorist team Alpha. Its not the real deal because its not available in the U.S. This AK is a clone imitation put together by Youtuber Larry Vicker. Vicker used an Arsenal Semiautomatic Bulgarian-made AK. In five-five six. The only reason the five-five six was used is that its what he had on hand. The Russians AK were using five-four-five and Seven-six-two by thirty-nine. Not that they are opposed to five-five six, matter of fact Vicker saw at least one guy was using an M4 in five-five six. Their AKs were five-four-five...

    The U.S. women's national soccer team is back on home soil following its victorious World Cup run in France. The last time the team was in this position, in 2015, it couldn't wait to celebrate with President Obama. But, it's a different story this year. Megan Rapinoe, one of the most vocal and recognizable players on the team, has already told the press she's "not f***ing going" to Trump's White House. As one of the openly gay players on the team, she doesn't believe Trump represents LGBT citizens. It's one of the reasons she's also refused to recite the national...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) warned that “the US is headed toward becoming a fascist country. On the one hand, we see continued attempts to prevent foreigners from entering the United States just because it is illegal. Then when the Border Patrol fails to prevent entry they’re holding these people in concentration camps. In what way is this significantly different from what Hitler did?” “Then, just this past week we saw antifascists forced to go out into the streets of Portland and beat up enemies of progressive policies,” the Congresswoman said. “Even though they had the backing of Portland Mayor Ted...
