Liberal Tantrums Over Amy Coney Barrett Were Expected, With Rose Garden Decoration Being the Most Triggering

Well, it’s official. As Katie wrote, Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals has been tapped to fill the vacancy left by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Ginsburg passed away on September 18 at the age of 87, which sent liberal America into meltdown mode. The liberal wing on the Court is crumbling and to make matters worse for them, President Trump is picking her successor. Nothing could be more delicious. And what’s better is that this isn’t much discontent among Senate Republicans this time. We’re pretty united. The only solid ‘no’ vote right now is Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) because Maine is weird and frankly, this SCOTUS fight will not help her. It will help everyone else. Nothing gets the conservative base more animated than a fight for the Supreme Court.  

Look, I’m not trying to excuse Collins’ weak sauce opposition, but I

Loud swearing broadcast to the nation following a Gareth Edwards try and panic after a presenter passed out during a live radio show.

Sound engineer Richard Cobourne describes working at Cardiff’s Broadcasting House (BH) during its early years as feeling like “pioneers”.

“You almost thought, if something went wrong, it would be patched up without anyone noticing,” he says.

BBC Wales is leaving its Llandaff home of 54 years for a new city centre base.

  • Cardiff Central Square – its transformation

It was where a distinctive form of Welsh broadcasting was developed – with the BBC’s longest-running drama Pobol y Cwm originally filmed there and the reception area doubling as an airport for cult classic film Grand Slam.

2020 hunting scorecard for Alaska’s Interior: Nelchina caribou are elusive, Unit 13B moose are scarce

Moose season has passed. My impression is that the success rate, at least along the northern highway system, was lower than normal.

I saw a few moose racks here and there while I was traveling the Richardson Highway, but when considering the number of hunters, it wasn’t much. The word from the Nabesna area was much the same.

Caribou reports were different. The Forty-mile herd was along both the Steese and the Elliott Highways. Hunter success was good and the hunts achieved the harvest quotas in a short time.

The Nelchina hunt is working out quite differently. The herd is nowhere near the road system. Caribou are being taken here and there, but not in numbers.

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game extended the early season for 10 days in an effort to increase harvest. It does not look promising. Last year the herd moved in a rush, crossing

growing fresh herbs

Think growing your own is over with summer? Not so. Here’s everything you need to know about planting a fall herb garden.

Though you may initially associate gardening with warming spring weather or the dog days of summer, the fall can actually be an ideal time to use your green thumb. Autumn is a prime time for planting many herbs that thrive in cooler weather, like cilantro, mint, parsley, rosemary, thyme, and more. You already know how using herbs can spice up some ho-hum dishes and add an additional kick to your favorite cocktails, but these ingredients can also contribute a slew of health benefits. Cilantro, for example, can combat inflammation, while mint is thought to promote digestion, and rosemary has antibacterial properties.

Given all the positives, you likely don’t need any convincing that having fresh herbs at your disposal will be a

Jaylyn Christopher Molina, of Texas, and Kristopher Sean Matthews, of South Carolina, face charges of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

An email and phone call to Molina’s attorney seeking comment did not receive an immediate response. Court records do not list an attorney for Matthews.

According to a criminal complaint filed in the federal court for the Western District of Texas, Molina and Matthews used an online chat group in 2019 to discuss attacking U.S. targets on behalf of ISIS. The pair also allegedly discussed traveling to Syria to fight with the Islamic State group.

They were allegedly studying how to build car

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden assured U.S. mayors on Saturday he would be an active partner in the White House in helping them respond to racial justice protests and the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.

“If I am elected, you will have direct access to the White House,” Biden, who is challenging Republican Donald Trump in the Nov. 3 election, told the fall leadership meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in a virtual address from his home in Delaware.

“It is all from the bottom up. It doesn’t go from the top down,” he said. “Whether your city is red or blue, I’m going to

Cooking homemade dishes from the heart

FRAZIER PARK, Calif. — Tucked away in the mountains of Frazier Park sits The Red Dot Vegetarian Kitchen, and their philosophy consists of cooking homemade meals from the heart. Their cooking inspiration is a mixture of comfort American food with an Indian, Asian and Middle Eastern influence.

“It was all started at the basis of just serving with love, to feed. We’re here to feed. So, to be able to grow and do that as we have has been an enormous blessing for us,” said Daniel Schwartz, manager of the The Red Dot Vegetarian Kitchen.

Some of their most popular dishes are tofu curry, pad Thai, pakora and a falafel pita sandwich. They also bake their own breads like sourdough and wood fire nan.

“We do everything fresh from scratch. The menu has evolved over the years as we’ve evolved,” said Schwartz.

In capitalism one eats food they pay for. You pay for the food from your pocket or by farming it yourself.

On Tuesday this week, the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Cooperative, launched the model kitchen garden developed in collaboration with Scaling up Nutrition Civil Society Alliance (SUN CSA Kenya).

“Kitchen gardens are the easiest ways households can ensure inexpensive supply of fresh vegetables, herbs, spices and other plants,” Anne Nyaga, the Chief Administrative Secretary, said at the event.

The model kitchen garden, located at Kilimo House in Upper Hill, Nairobi, is the centrepiece of the call by the Government for families to cultivate home-based gardens, “at least one million kitchen gardens across the country,” Nyaga said.

Affordable food at home

“The focus is not only to make food available

Fall home decor trends: Comfort, flexibility

In recent years, brown anything in a living space was considered by some arbiters of decor as drab and outdated. But this fall the hue is back in favor, in part because of the unsettled, anxious state of the world.

“Brown traditionally makes people feel comfortable and safe, and those are feelings that many of us are looking to our homes to provide,” says interior designer Dawn Hamilton of Oakland Park, Fla.

It’s just one of the trends in decor this season, when the pandemic has made home an even more essential space for living, working, studying and more. Also on the watch list: flexible rooms, indoor and out.

Cozy palette

Hamilton says today’s brown palette is being used in new ways, as a neutral in all kinds of materials, and as an accent color.

“Brown feels very earthy and rich. It’s warm and inviting, and has the same grounding
