Assam court holds 25 guilty in lynching of 73-yr-old tea garden doctor last year – cities

A court in Assam on Monday pronounced 25 people guilty in a case, where a mob had lynched a senior doctor around 13 months ago.

The court acquitted six accused in the case, while another accused had died in judicial custody.

Individual races in the House of Representatives may matter more than usual this year

Individual races in the House of Representatives may matter more than usual this year.

After all, there’s a reason why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and even President Trump have alluded to why individual House contests could have exponential impact, depending on who wins and loses in which state.

PELOSI ANNOUNCES BILL ON 25TH AMENDMENT AFTER QUESTIONING TRUMP’S HEALTH 

To be clear, there are few scenarios where Democrats could lose control of the House this fall. The current breakdown is 232 Democrats to 197 Republicans and one Libertarian, Rep. Justin Amash, L-Mich. There are five vacancies. Democrats are likely to add to that majority this fall.

However, here’s the problem: potential election chaos.

As we reported in this space last month, the House and Senate are the ultimate arbiters of determining how many electoral votes go to each presidential candidate. This is usually a fait accompli, established during a rather

White House to host ‘Fall Garden Tours’ this year, despite issues with health and safety

The White House is set to host “Fall Garden Tours” for lawmakers and the public this season to show off the newly renovated Rose Garden. 

The tours will be hosted Oct. 17 and Oct. 18, even after more than 20 staffers, journalists, allies of the administration and GOP lawmakers tested positive for coronavirus following contact with the White House. 

The tours are free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Visitors will be able to tour the South Lawn, First Ladies Garden, White House Kitchen Garden and Rose Garden.

Guest capacity is limited, and visitors are required to wear a face mask. Tickets will be offered to all congressional offices. 

President Trump and first lady Melania tested positive for COVID-19 last week, but White House physician Dr. Sean Conley announced the president will be able to return to public engagements this weekend.

That Kitchen Aid You Use Twice a Year Can Also Make Pasta, Stuff Sausages, Spiralize, and Juice

At the risk of dating myself here, I have had a KitchenAid stand mixer for more than 16 years. My wife and I got it as an engagement party gift, as one does. Truth be told, for the first decade-plus of our marriage, the rather large, clunky mixer spent most of its time in a kitchen cabinet. It only saw the light of day to mix up the occasional cake batter or to mix together ingredients for muffins, bread, and other rarely-prepared eats.

Then we started reading up on the thing — it turns out that calling this thing a mixer is akin to calling a Swiss Army Knife a blade. Sure, it mixes, with multiple speeds, the capacity for more than 100 cookies in a single batch of batter, mixer attachments for all types of batter, dough,

Tornado-damaged Home Depot is rebuilt and ready to open a year later

Just shy of a year after a tornado destroyed their Home Depot, employees who escaped being hurt are ready to reopen a rebuilt store that incorporates the home improvement retailer’s latest ideas.

The new Home Depot opens Thursday at its original spot on Forest Lane just east of North Central Expressway. Ten tornadoes on Oct. 20, 2019, caused $2 billion in damage to homes and businesses in Dallas, Richardson and Garland.

Store manager Jonathan Shields said about 50 of his former employees are back, and the store has hired another 150 people and plans to add as many as 50 more.

Three of Shields’ four assistant store managers returned, including Jordan Jasper, who made the fortunate call to send his co-workers home early on Oct. 20 after hearing the weather forecasts and likely saving some lives.

Jasper was honored at a ceremony attended by 500 area Home Depot employees a

Bloomberg ‘Awards’ C8 Corvette Worst Interior of the Year Honors

C8 Corvette Stingray

While everyone else praises the C8 Corvette cabin, one news site throws serious shade on the entire design.

Ever since the C8 Corvette debuted, we’ve yet to find one critical or negative review regarding the latest generation of GM’s legendary sports car. That is, until now. While everyone else on earth seemingly loves the C8’s revised interior, Bloomberg apparently feels much differently. In fact, they went so far as to name the new Corvette’s cabin one of the “worst car interiors of the year,” which seems a bit extreme.

Bloomberg preempts their critical review by saying that the C8 is “not a bad car,” and notes that it’s “among the most athletic, fun-to-drive vehicles on the market today.” Regardless, they claim that the Corvette’s interior is “likely to leave you feeling stressed, confused, or disappointed.” All we can say is – there’s a first time for everything, and a
