    This past week, America said its final goodbye to Sandra Day O’Connor. The first woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court was eulogized at Washington National Cathedral by President Joe Biden and Chief Justice John Roberts. Justice O’Connor was appointed in 1981 by my father, served nearly a quarter century and died Dec. 1 at age 93. As Chief Justice John Roberts said, she was “a strong, influential, iconic jurist. Her leadership shaped the legal profession, making it obvious that judges are both women and men.” Most people know about Justice O’Connor making history as the first woman justice.

    A “shrewd and devious” Long Island couple failed to pay their mortgage for at least 14 years, dragged out their foreclosure for more than a decade, and refused to leave after a new family bought the house from the bank, court records show. To make matters worse, one of the alleged interlopers was caught on video telling the legal owner to “go back to Pakistan.” The frustrated owners of the Jericho home claim they’ve shelled out $85,000 and counting to keep up with taxes, mortgage payments, and other bills, while alleged squatters Barry J. Pollack and his wife, Barbara, live...

    In trying to subdue a python and prevent it from potentially hurting others, one man ended up getting bitten by it instead. A python was spotted inside a drain about four to five metres from a coffee shop at Block 66 Kallang Bahru on Thursday (Nov 16) evening, reported Shin Min Daily News. Worried that the python would enter the coffee shop and harm the other patrons, a group of diners decided to try and pull it out of the drain. One of them, a 42-year-old construction worker surnamed Huang, told Shin Min that the group spent about 20 minutes...

    It’s no gouda. A 74-year-old dairy farmer got creamed during a meltdown at his sprawling cheese warehouse in northern Italy on Sunday night when thousands of wheels of hard parmesan-style formaggio collapsed on top of him. Giacomo Chiapparini, the owner of the eponymous Chiapparini cheese-making company in Lombardy, was killed in the freak accident when giant shelves holding the 90lb wheels of grana padano cheese suddenly buckled. Chiapparini was using a machine to rotate and clean the cheese wheels at various stages of ripening when one of the metal shelves caved, creating a “domino effect,” firefighter Antonio Dusi told the...

    An older brother passed up a chance at getting the signature of Josh Allen, instead asking the all-star Bills quarterback to give his sister a hug. Allen did just that as the sister was in tears. Fans shouted as Allen signed autographs at St. John Fisher University on Wednesday during the first day Buffalo Bills training camp. Before Allen began signing autographs, the brother calls to him saying “I have a question.” The quarterback walks over and the brother leans into his ear, asking him to hug his sister in the bucket hat whose already crying. In between signing hats,...

    The IRS was stopped from questioning Joe Biden’s sister, Valerie Biden Owens — said to be the president’s “final gut-check” in decision-making — about cash she received from Hunter Biden, a whistleblower has claimed. Biden Owens received a payment via Venmo from the first son, according to an interview with IRS whistleblower Joseph Ziegler, a 13-year IRS veteran who gave testimony to the House Committee on Ways and Means last month. “So I continually ask, ‘Can I go and interview them?’ And those were always met with ‘no,'” said Ziegler, who was known as “whistleblower #2” in the Ways and...

    Kim Yo-Jong, a top North Korean communist official and sister of dictator Kim Jong-un, published a barely coherent string of insults and threats on Tuesday suggesting that international experts doubting the quality of North Korean weapons may soon prompt an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launch across the Pacific Ocean. Kim, officially a vice department director at the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party (the ruling communist party), published her statement through the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), one of the few legal media outlets in the country and a government-run propaganda platform. Kim appeared to be responding to the free...

    NATIONAL MOUSSE DAY On November 30th, National Mousse Day serves up a delicious treat that can be savory or sweet. #NationalMousseDay What can we say about mousse?

This versatile dish lends itself well to both desserts and savory recipes. In fact, several types of mousse can be served at the same meal. From a smokey salmon mousse as the first course to a tart...

    Had the opportunity to attend my very first gun show at the Benton, AR Gun And Knife Show last weekend, along with some neighbors. It was a hoot! As gun ownership in Kalifornia is anything but easy, and especially so in Sillycon Valley, I'd never, in thirty-five years there, undertaken to attend such a show. But enough about that place. I'm told this was a comparatively small show. What surprised me first off was the variety of people attending: Families with small kids, all races, all ages, both genders.Good advice in general"An armed society is a polite society," as they...

    In Washington, DC, it was no secret that Joe Biden yearned for the presidency, despite his 1988 and 2008 campaigns which both failed to gain significant traction. However, in August 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama of Illinois tapped Biden — then a longtime Delaware senator — to become his vice presidential running mate, catapulting him to the highest echelons of government after the ticket's successful campaign.

    Boris Johnson’s sister has suggested that the prime minister was a university friend of socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who is awaiting trial in the US on charges of grooming underage girls for sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. In an article for The Spectator magazine, Rachel Johnson painted a colourful picture of the pair relaxing together in the junior common room of Balliol College, Oxford, where they were contemporaries in the 1980s. The “shiny glamazon” Maxwell had her high-heeled boot “resting on my brother Boris’s thigh” as she held forth to fellow students, she said. Ms Johnson remained vague about how well her...
