    Historical coins are much more than just pieces of jewelry for collections and exhibitions and are of particular interest for research. The University of Trier has had a collection of mainly ancient coins for several years. The more than 500 copies have now been digitized and made accessible in portals. “The digitization of coin collections is a great benefit for science. Integration into databases and permanent access to a large number of coins opens up new options for research, but also for teaching,” explains Prof. Dr. Frank Daubner, the ancient historian responsible for the collection at Trier University. Researchers can...

    Weekends and holidays are the perfect time to catch people off guard…Like a street thug committing a mugging, capital controls blindside most people—otherwise, they wouldn’t be effective.The government declares a surprise bank holiday and shuts all the banks—mere hours after they denied they were even thinking about such actions.They impose capital controls to stop citizens from taking their money out of the country.Cash-sniffing dogs, which make drug-sniffing dogs look friendly, show up at airports and border crossings.At this point, your money is like a lobster in a trap. It doesn’t require much imagination to see what comes next.Once a desperate...

    I imagine life can often feel pretty difficult for today’s high school students. On top of dealing with classic teenage drama like homework, hormones, pimples, parents, driving, dating, university selection, and more, students these days have to contend with a host of new challenges. They suffered long periods of brutal Covid lockdowns. Active shooter drills are a normal part of student life. And, of course, there’s the nonstop anxiety and peer pressure of social media. Plus, on top of everything else, students today have also been force-fed some pretty bizarre ideas. Classical literature, advanced mathematics, and hard sciences have taken...
  • Denver cuts services in response to the migrant crisis that’s costing the city $180 million

    Denver will cut hours at recreation centers, end in-person vehicle registration renewals and eliminate spring flower beds to save $5 million this year, a response to the migrant crisis that is expected to cost the city $180 million. Mayor Mike Johnston on Friday blasted Congress for failing this week to pass a $118.3 billion bill aimed at stopping the flow of illegal entry at the southern border and making it easier for migrants who enter legally to get work permits. About 40,000 migrants, mostly from Venezuela, have arrived in Denver over the past year, and more than 3,500 are living...
  • Make money by denying care’: new US rules aim to curb use of approval by private health insurances

    The guardian ^ | 02/02/2024 | Jessica Glenza
    A new set of rules from the Biden administration seeks to rein in private health insurance companies’ use of prior authorization – a byzantine practice that requires people to seek insurance company permission before obtaining medication or having a procedure. The cost-containment strategy often delays care and forces patients, or their doctors, to navigate opaque and labyrinthine appeals. The administration’s newly finalized rules will require insurance companies who work in federal programs to speed up the approval process and make decisions within 72 hours for urgent requests. The regulations will also require companies to give a specific reason as to...
  • E. Jean Carroll Goes Full “Price Is Right” Over How She’ll Spend “Trump’s Money”

    Following a bombshell $83.3 million award against Donald Trump, his rape accuser E. Jean Carroll, whose case was bankrolled by his enemies, couldn’t remember basic facts of her own claim, once described rape as “sexy,” and whose “off the rails” tweets weren’t allowed to be shown to the jury – just put on an absurd display. When asked by MSNBC‘s Rachael Maddow on Monday night how she’ll spend “Trump’s money” to help “women’s rights,” Carroll did her best impression of a “Price is Right” winner – like rape victims do, telling Maddow: “First thing Rachel, you and I are gonna...

    The $130 billion sent to Ukraine so far for its war against Russia is apparently not actually going to Ukraine, but is really “benefiting American interests,” a spokesperson for Ukraine told Breitbart News. The shock claim was in response to a request for information by Breitbart News on whether or not any American tax dollars had gone specifically to Uman, a city in the war-torn Eastern European nation that is currently seeing a condo built on a Jewish mass grave, as previously reported, in violation of a bilateral agreement with the U.S., and in violation of international law. Breitbart reported...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States is out of money for Ukraine, unable to send the ammunition and missiles that the government in Kyiv needs to fend off Russia's invasion.With the aid caught up in domestic politics, the Biden administration on Tuesday came empty-handed for the first time as host of the monthly meeting of about 50 nations that coordinate support for Ukraine. The group was established by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in April 2022.

    America's tax debts are spiraling after the IRS put a halt to chasing payments during the pandemic. Some 18.6 million taxpayers owed the IRS $316 billion in overdue taxes at the end of 2022, up from 16.8 million owing $308 billion in September 2019. And the figures are only set to grow this year. Experts are warning that workers who have been used to getting refunds in the last few years can swing into money owed for 2024. The trend has been fueled by the end of pandemic tax relief and also a booming stock market which puts more investors...

    Former President Donald Trump turned up in Manhattan federal court Wednesday for a second day in a row, as a jury is set to decide how much he must pay in damages to E. Jean Carroll, after he was found liable last year of both defaming the magazine writer in 2022, and sexually abusing her in the ’90s. *** The “Ask E. Jean” columnist is asking for more than $10 million in damages. That’s on top of $5 million that jurors last spring ordered Trump to cough up. *** Donald Trump threw his hands in the air and said he'd...

    An Ohio mother was arrested Monday for running a Dee Dee Blanchard-esque grift in which she pocketed thousands of dollars after pretending her young daughter was suffering from cancer. Pamela Reed, 41, allegedly lied to her friends and family for years about the health of her 7-year-old daughter, whom she publicly masqueraded on the internet as a blind and sickly child suffering from a trove of medical anomalies, including acute myeloid leukemia and regular seizures. Reed admitted to even shaving her young child’s head in order to sell the plot, cops said. Community members generously “participated in fundraising efforts and...

    Around the mid-Eighties there was an animated series based on the beloved Berenstain Bears children's books. The show ran on Saturday mornings on CBS. It was pretty good as I seem to recall. And often quite humorous.Well, the other day one of the episodes sprang to mind as I was reading the news about the latest attempt to avoid a government shutdown. It involved the Bear kiddies learning all about money. How those little green pieces of paper don't have value on their own. Instead they must be backed up by something with real tangible worth. In the bears' world...
  • Anybody notice how nasty Nicaragua's Ortega regime has gotten since the migrant remittances started flowing?

    American Thinker ^ | 31 Dec, 2023 | Monica Showalter
    The more people Ortega can drive out of his country, the richer and more oppressive he gets. With Joe Biden's migrant surge, migrant remittances follow, and some very baleful developments are happening abroad. The one that stands out is that of Marxist socialist Daniel Ortega, Nicaragua's little dictator, who along with a string of failed leaders before him, impoverished his country in relative obscurity, leaving it the hemisphere's second-poorest after Haiti. The country boasts a per capita income of about $2,200 per year which is lower than even Cubans are paid, and hard as heck to live on even in...

    SAN JOSE (Reuters) - Nicaraguan migrants sent relatives back home record remittances this year through November, data from the country's central bank showed on Wednesday, fueled by massive waves of migration leaving the Central American nation in recent years. In a statement, the bank noted a record haul of about $4.24 billion in remittances for the 11-month period, 47% more than the amount sent home during the same period last year. The 2023 remittances tallied by Nicaragua's central bank showed that nearly 60% came from the senders in the United States and almost 20% from neighboring Costa Rica.

Zelensky said Ukraine was prepared to produce more ammunition and military vehicles, but it required support. He posted on X: I met with leaders of US defense companies and expressed my gratitude to every American worker who manufactures weapons that help us safeguard our people and defend our land.
