The White House Print Press Pool reporter did not report that President Biden looked for Representative Jackie Walorksi in the crowd today, despite her having tragically passed away in a fatal car accident in August. Biden mistakenly asked the crowd “Jackie are you here? Where’s Jackie?” before adding “I don’t think she was going to be here.” White House One poll has found that a majority of Americans are concerned about Biden’s mental health. The gaffe did not, however, make it into the official White House Print Press Pool report, which media outlets look to for their White House reporting. Arthur Schwartz took to Twitter to ask the press pool reporter, Alexander Nazaryan, why Biden’s attempt to find a deceased Congresswoman in the crowd did not make the pool report. Nazaryan is a Senior White House Correspondent for Yahoo News. The White House print pool reporter today is @alexnazaryan . This incident does not appear in the White House pool … [Read more...] about Reporter Ignores Biden’s Search for Deceased Congresswoman
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said on Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily that the Biden administration’s ostensible investigation of the Pentagon’s failure to successfully recruit its target for U.S. armed services personnel comically resembles O.J. Simpson’s claim to search for the “real killer” of the former football player’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson. “Military recruiting is in a crisis,” Cotton said. Breitbart News relayed a report in June regarding the White House’s consideration of lowering health and medical standards to broaden eligibility criteria for military enrolment in response to its recruitment failures. Cotton added, “The Biden administration looking for the causes of our military recruiting crisis is kind of like O.J. looking for the real killer.” Cotton highlighted the depending entrenchment of left-wing ideology into the armed forces as a driver of lowering national interest in military services, including “vaccine mandates,” “gender … [Read more...] about Tom Cotton: Biden Investigating Military Recruitment Crisis Is like O.J.

Latvia declared a state of emergency near its border with Russia on Wednesday, days after Russian President Vladimir Putin declared the mobilization of 300,000 men. The Latvian government announced the news on its website, saying that it will affect the regions of the country bordering Russia's Pskov region, as well as airports, border crossing points, ports and railways through December 27. It comes amid a growing exodus of Russians fleeing the country following Putin's partial mobilization order, which he announced on September 21. Many citizens have attempted to flee the country by car, train and plane to Russia's neighboring nations. The Latvian government said the state of emergency has been imposed "due to the mobilization announced in Russia." "With the mobilization announced in Russia, the number of Russian citizens wishing to leave their country has increased significantly. Thus, there is a risk of a rapid increase in the number of illegal migrants on the … [Read more...] about Latvia declares state of emergency at border as Russia mobilizes troops
An alleged intruder who was shot by a Tulsa, Oklahoma, homeowner Tuesday afternoon was found dead in the residence’s driveway when officers arrived. KRMG reports an elderly homeowner “saw a man breaking into a window in his home” roughly 30 minutes past noon on Tuesday. The homeowner shot at the intruder, striking him at least once. The suspect took off running and “made it to the driveway of the home where he collapsed and was pronounced dead.” Tulsa World quotes police Capt. Richard Meulenberg summarizing the last few seconds of the alleged intruder’s life: “The suspect jumped back out the window, ran from the back of the house to the front of the house, collapsed on the ground, and when first responders arrived we pronounced him deceased at that time,” The elderly homeowner thought there was more than one intruder suspect and a police K-9 search was carried out to be sure the area was secure.

GREELEY — A 20-year-old woman who was seriously injured when the parked police patrol vehicle she was detained in was struck by a freight train in northern Colorado has been released from the hospital. Yareni Rios-Gonzalez , of Greeley, is recovering at home with nine broken ribs, a broken arm, a fractured sternum and numerous other injuries to her head and back, her attorney, Paul Wilkinson, told KUSA-TV. “She is bedridden.

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 2 Nobody quite knew what compelled Zachary Didier, a floppy-haired, straight-A high school student from Placer County, to buy what he thought were opioid painkillers from a dealer over Snapchat. But what was likely an impulsive decision, made during a pandemic lockdown, changed everything for the Didier family. Seventeen-year-old Zachary died two days after Christmas in 2020 from intoxication by fentanyl, the cheap and supremely powerful drug often laced into illicit pills that traffickers peddle online. The Rocklin teenager’s father found him sitting at a computer in his bedroom, one arm cradling his head while the other rested on a mouse. Friends Zachary had kept since third grade served as pallbearers at his funeral. An acceptance letter from UCLA arrived three months later. Amid the mourning, Zachary’s death became part of a critical and controversial shift in the response to a … [Read more...] about A 17-year-old died from a fentanyl-laced pill.

The iconic yellow sign. The cheap, yet popular food. The lights that never seem to dim, even as hurricanes and natural catastrophes bare down on the communities around them. The late Anthony Bourdain, of CNN, perhaps had the best description of the diner-like restaurant chain that serves hot meals 24 hours a day, seven days a week. "It is indeed marvelous. An irony-free zone where everything is beautiful and nothing hurts," Bourdain once said. "Where everybody, regardless of race, creed, color or degree of inebriation, is welcomed. It's warm, yellow glow, a beacon of hope and salvation, inviting the hungry, the lost, the seriously hammered all across the south to come inside. A place of safety and nourishment. It never closes. It is always faithful, always there for you." Waffle House is home to one of the most well-known unofficial indicators used by FEMA to measure the severity of natural disasters: The "Waffle House Index." The restaurant chain even has a "Waffle House News" … [Read more...] about What is the Waffle House Index? This is the true story from the man who created it, Craig Fugate
Dear Newsweek , I am 23 years old and my fiancé is 28, we have been together for almost four years. When we were together a little over a year and a half, I popped the question and asked him to marry me with a ring and everything. Shortly after, he got served papers and had over $20,000 in debt he ended up going to court over. Two years later, he is now completely debt-free, but only thanks to me kicking his ass into gear. He refused to take care of the issue for almost another year after being served. For obvious reasons, the wedding was put on the back burner and has only been mentioned a few times since. As of recently, I've started getting a little impatient. I try to mention getting married and he gets mad. He says he has bunches of people who always ask him about what we have planned like his dad, co-workers, etc, and he hates it. I've been bugging him about it because I will be honest, I feel like after almost three years of being engaged, with no wedding in sight … [Read more...] about My Fiancé Keeps Delaying Our Wedding—What Should I Do?
BMW and Amazon are teaming up to build a new voice experience for drivers and passengers. The Alexa Custom Assistant platform is designed to be fully customizable, allowing automakers to put their own spin on the experience for their customers. This approach is similar to how Alphabet 's Android Automotive technology runs in the background of numerous automakers' infotainment systems while a branded screen is shown to users. Volvo, Polestar and General Motors currently use the technology. BMW has a long relationship with another Alphabet company, Google , integrating its search engine into the first iDrive system in 2007. The following year BMW became the first automaker to unlock unlimited in-car internet access for its owners. The iDrive technology has continued to grow smarter as generations debuted, with an online-based voice control system premiering in 2018 in what was then the new BMW 3 Series. It is underpinned by BMW Operating System 7 vehicle software, which is … [Read more...] about Amazon pushes harder into autos with new Alexa technology
As a long-time reader of The Hindu — for 56 years — I find that the redesign and its new format make it even easier to read; there is less eye strain. The white space has not been compromised and the new format is more clutter-free, bold and very sharp. The most appreciable design aspect over the years is a better ‘aspect ratio’: there is no need to flip to a different page or column. The ‘snippets-photo feature’ on the ‘World’ page, which gives a reader an idea of world happenings at a glance, is a welcome change. It is news in a nutshell. The Hindu has been evolving over time and the attempt this time to make the daily reader-friendly, or rather, senior-citizen friendly, is appreciated. I feel the space for the Editorials looks a bit cramped. It was interesting to note how The Hindu has evolved since 1889. A.V. Narayanan, Tiruchi, Tamil Nadu The new look is extraordinary. My compliments to Dr. Garcia and The Hindu for making it so pleasant to read the paper early in the … [Read more...] about Letters to The Editor | On The Hindu’s new look
