All five living former US presidents – Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, George HW Bush and George W Bush – will on Saturday night attend a concert in College Station, Texas, an event staged to raise money for relief efforts from hurricane devastation in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
Hurricane Irma subsequently hit Florida and Hurricane Maria battered Puerto Rico, while both affected the US Virgin Islands.
"This fall, hunting season, there'll be people hunting caribou in the same place that's happened for 12,000 years," said Lois Dalle-Molle, a research coordinator for the Alaska National Parks. "Most of the parks in Alaska are established under a different law than the parks in the lower 48."
Respect for the land … respect for the animals … respect for a tradition and lifestyle that have existed for thousands of years.
For those who grew to love Chris Rosati, myself included, there was nothing he could do or say at the end to negate the gifts he gave.
You can click here to see the video, but be warned — it involves me wearing a lot of formal attire and Chris ends up shirtless.
Joey Abonzo was working as an optician in Dallas when he was first introduced to Korean pop music, also known as K-pop, in 2012.
The consulate wanted to know if Kpop Dallas was interested in helping organize and promote a preliminary round of the K-pop World Festival, a South Korean government-sponsored event that invites international K-pop fans to perform their favorite songs. Winners of regional rounds, held in 71 countries in 2016, have the opportunity to compete at the final event in Changwon, South Korea.
Michele Marsh, an Emmy Award-winning newscaster who was an anchor on nightly programs on the CBS and NBC flagship stations in New York City for more than two decades, died on Tuesday at her home in South Kent, Conn.
Ms. Marsh was one of several women — Carol Jenkins, Pia Lindstrom, Carol Martin and Melba Tolliver were the others — who had by 1980 swept into anchor positions at all five of the New York stations that had late-night news programs.
As a health advocate for the American Cancer Society, she watched year after year as other states increased their cigarette taxes and lowered their smoking rates.
Internal documents disclosed in lawsuits show how seriously tobacco companies perceive the threat of cigarette taxes, with several tobacco companies calling tax hikes the most alarming, existential threat they face. A nationwide analysis of 31 years of cigarette taxes by University of North Carolina researchers found that Republican control of a state was a key predictor for its cigarette tax rates.
Last week, the city trumpeted that Starbucks plans to open a store on the thoroughfare, its first stand-alone location in the poorest wards east of the Anacostia River, where D.C. has long struggled to attract national retailers.
When Larry Jackson bought his first apartment in the Anacostia neighborhood in the late 1970s, he said Martin Luther King Avenue SE was a street “you didn’t want to walk on.” In recent years, Jackson, a 57-year-old mechanic, has seen new development push out the drugs and dealers he said once “loaded this street.”
With this warming recipe comes the realization that, yes, a meatless chili that takes less than an hour to make can offer a satisfying chew and deep flavor.
Stir in the minced jalapeño and garlic, then add 2 tablespoons of the chili powder, half the cumin, the smoked paprika, the tomatoes and their juices, tomato paste and water, stirring to incorporate. Season with ¼ teaspoon each of the salt and pepper; cook for 3 or 4 minutes, stirring often, until softened.
In the face of fan unrest and accusations from the president about the league being unpatriotic, the NFL is not changing its national anthem policy to require players to stand.
… Goodell said the initiatives to enhance the pace of games have worked, including 40-second clocks after touchdowns, use of the Microsoft Surface tablets for replay reviews, and the centralization in the New York headquarters of officiating calls that are reviewed.
Arthur Cinader, the founder of J. Crew, the clothing retailer that rose to prominence marketing a classic preppy chic to upper-middle-income consumers, died on Oct. 11 in Santa Fe, N.M.
Mr. Cinader spent much of his retirement in Santa Fe but also traveled frequently to the Netherlands, his wife’s native country, and to New York and Washington, where he was involved with policy groups like the libertarian Cato Institute and the conservative American Enterprise Institute.
The design by John Russell Pope, whose Washington oeuvre includes the Jefferson Memorial, the National Archives and the National Gallery’s West Building, was deemed too costly, so Pope retooled it for APhA; self-plagiarism of this sort was de rigueur at the time.
APhA acquired the plot between 22nd and 23rd streets — the same one Kidwell had owned — in 1928, and a 1932 act of Congress shut a street cutting diagonally across the land in exchange for APhA’s contribution of other land so 23rd Street could be widened.
Compounding matters was that it appears Mr Trump went into the conversation with Johnson's widow without a clear script.
It's only gotten worse, as the story has morphed into one of an allegedly callous presidential call to a grieving widow of a US soldier killed in Niger. It started bad, with the president questioning the way his predecessors dealt with the families of war dead.
A top Senate Republican is calling for the Justice Department to lift an apparent “gag order” on an FBI informant who reportedly helped the U.S. uncover a corruption and bribery scheme by Russian nuclear officials but allegedly was “threatened” by the Obama administration to stay quiet.
The U.S. was involved because the sale gave the Russians control of part of the uranium supply in the U.S. . Grassley wrote in letters last week to federal agencies that he’s not “convinced” by previous “assurances” that there were no unresolved national security concerns, and revealed Thursday that he wants to hear from the FBI informant in the Russia corruption probe.
Thousands of people have taken to the streets of Catalonia to protest against a judge’s decision to detain two prominent pro-independence leaders, as tensions between the Madrid and Barcelona governments continue to rise.
Similar demonstrations were held in Tarragona, Lérida and Girona, with further protests due to take place on Tuesday evening. About 500 students abandoned their classrooms in one of Barcelona’s main universities to join the demonstrations.
Fired Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly paid $32 million to settle a sexual harassment claim just before he signed his last contract with Fox News.
“When the company renewed Bill O'Reilly's contract in February, it knew that a sexual harassment lawsuit had been threatened against him by Lis Wiehl, but was informed by Mr. O'Reilly that he had settled the matter personally, on financial terms that he and Ms. Wiehl had agreed were confidential and not disclosed to the company,” the representative told the Los Angeles Times.
