    HAVING sex on your period may sound slightly unappealing to some, while others say it is completely natural. But do you need to be concerned about it? Here's what you need to know... 1 Can you have sex on your period?Credit: Getty - Contributor Can you have sex on your period? There’s absolutely no reason why you cannot have sex when you’re menstruating. Some people may prefer not to because they find it messy, and others may oppose it due to religion.

    The chairman of DMGT has condemned the Australian 'surrender' to tech giants and says its watering down of laws forcing them to pay for news is 'bad for democracy' across the globe. Lord Rothermere said the laws, which were given final approval by Australian senators today, will allow Facebook and Google to 'decide what news is read on social media and what, if anything, is paid for it.' He added that politicians in democracies worldwide must decide if they will let tech giants choose what news the public sees in 'secret deals with the publishers they favour' - or act to ensure 'fair and transparent treatment for all'. DMGT chairman Lord Rothermere has written an open letter condemning Australia's 'surrender' to big tech companies in battle over paying for content In a letter sent to the Financial Times, he wrote: 'Yesterday was a bad day for democracy.

    In the last six months I’ve heard one phrase more often than I had in my previous 66 years: “Can you believe this is happening in America?” As in: “I spent the whole day hunting online for a drugstore to get a COVID vaccination. Can you believe this is happening in America?” “Fellow Americans ransacked our Capitol and tried to overturn an election. Can you believe this is happening in America?” “People in Texas are burning their furniture for heat, boiling water to drink and melting snow to flush their toilets. Can you believe this is happening in America?” But, hey, all the news is not bad. We just sent a high-tech buggy named Perseverance loaded with cameras and scientific gear 292 million miles into space and landed it on the exact dot we were aiming for on Mars! Only in America! What’s going on? Well, in the case of Texas...

    The Hamburg labor court (north) and the Federal Labor Court (Bundesarbeitsgericht) were seized by Muslim employees whose employers in Germany demanded that they remove their veils at their workplace. These two jurisdictions questioned the CJEU to find out whether the rules of the companies concerned comply with the directive on equal treatment in employment and occupation. The Advocate General, in his conclusions published Thursday, recalled that the directive required the absence of any direct or indirect discrimination based in particular on religion. Based on case law, he considers that “the prohibition of wearing any visible sign of political, philosophical or religious convictions in the workplace, which results from an internal rule of a private company, does not constitute direct discrimination based on religion or belief against workers who observe certain dress rules in application of religious precepts “. The Advocate General further considers that “if the ban on the...
    Jeff Sherman spent 11 days in the hospital fighting COVID-19. "I was on oxygen the entire time, they of course charged for that," the Huntington Beach, California  resident told CBS Los Angeles. "I was on high flow oxygen two-thirds of that time, and they charge an extra rate for that, so the total bill was $110,000." The six-page long itemized bill ranges from $3,400 a day for his ICU bed to nearly $4,500 for a dose of Remdesivir. And then there are the charges that surprised him the most, like $22 a day for a single melatonin to help him sleep. Sherman has insurance but like many Americans, he has a high deductible. He believes almost all of it will be covered by worker's compensation, because he contracted the virus on the job. But Karen Pollitz, of the Kaiser Family Foundation, says many Californians aren't so lucky. "Resources...

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: My mother-in-law is a bully. For many years, I tried everything to make this relationship work. I attempted to ingratiate myself, politely stood up to her, and let the tears fall as she insulted me. According to her, it is not her fault that I am too stupid to do anything right and am so ridiculously hypersensitive — two of many things she cannot stand about me. I try to manage the situation by encouraging my husband to visit her alone and to call her with reasonable frequency. Our adult kids refuse to see her because of the way she treats me, which is not my wish, nor do I want to be the cause of a rift between my husband and his mother.

    We now have an urgent opportunity to counter years of inequity and inaction by dramatically expanding access to the Internet. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering whether or not to expand the $ 4 billion E-rate program to support remote learning during the pandemic. For students and families across the country who have struggled to access learning during this tumultuous year, this is exactly the kind of action needed to begin tackling serious digital inequality in our country. There is no denying that the flaws in our public education system, the ones that keep poor students out of equitable access to a good education, continue to worsen during each day, week, and subsequent month of online learning. We have been in the COVID-19 pandemic for nearly a year and another school year in a largely digital experience for hundreds of thousands of students nationwide.

    Dear Quentin, When my husband and his only (younger) brother were growing up, a childless neighbor was very kind to them and treated them as if they were her “nephews”, they even called her “Aunt Hilda.” They also treated her like family; my husband has visited her regularly over the years. But greed is rearing its ugly head and killing brotherly love. When my husband was away in the army 30 years ago, Aunt Hilda gave a house and a piece of property to my husband’s brother when she decided to move to another state to care for her future mother-in-law, with the written legal condition that she had a lifelong ability to return and live in the house as well, should she want to or need to. The brother decided he didn’t really like those terms, and after living in the house for a couple of years, used...
    Former GOP Senate staffer Amanda Carpenter explained that Mike Pence could enjoy a “safe, comfortable life” in the conservative movement — provided the former vice president stay silent about Donald Trump’s role in the Capitol insurrection that threatened his own life. During a discussion of the future of the Republican Party on CNN’s AC360, Carpenter agreed with Utah Sen. Mitt Romney’s take on the state of the GOP. On Tuesday, Romney told New York Times business columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin that “I think [Trump] would win the nomination if he runs” in 2024. “Do you agree with Mitt Romney. What does it tell you that Mitt Romney is saying that?” guest host John Berman asked. “I think if the primary were held today, there is no doubt,” the Never Trumper Carpenter conceded. “Who would oppose Donald Trump in this environment? But it gets to the point about the strategic silence of Mike Pence. I do think Mike Pence would like to be president. Realistically, he...

    Paper dolls are held by demonstrators protesting outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters to demand the release of immigrants families in detention centers at risk during the coronavirus pandemic, in Washington, D.C., on July 17, 2020. The federal judge who last month temporarily halted the Biden administration’s 100-day moratorium on most deportations following a lawsuit from Texas’ very-corrupt Republican attorney general has extended that pause “indefinitely,” the Associated Press reports. That initial hold from U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, who was appointed by the previous administration, was set to expire Tuesday. It’s now extended indefinitely. “This ruling is legally wrong and will seriously harm families and communities around the country,” American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Immigrants’ Rights Project attorney Cody Wofsy said. “Texas’ suit is an attempt to deprive the Biden administration of a meaningful opportunity to review and assess immigration enforcement after years of living under lawless Trump policies.

    VIDEO9:4909:49Jim Cramer: 12 stocks to beat big institutional investors at their own gameMad Money with Jim Cramer Stock in GameStop and AMC found another leg to run on Wednesday, posting their strongest day of trading since an internet-fueled short squeeze sent their share prices to the stratosphere last month. AMC shares closed 18% higher at $9.09 and GameStop more than doubled to settle at $91.70 weeks after a so-called "meme stock" frenzy cooled off. Retail investors got behind a basket of recommendations on the Reddit forum Wall Street Bets in hopes of exposing an unusually high short interest by hedge funds in a number of stocks. While the rally was short-lived, CNBC's Jim Cramer on Wednesday advised that young traders taking advantage of commission-free transactions on brokerage apps like Robinhood should rely less on speculative trades and get back to the basics of investing.

    The Lakers are in a thick soup after Anthony Davis injured his Achilles in the game against the Nuggets. Since then, the Lakers have lost three of their four games and will also stand against a scary Utah Jazz. Other than this, AD’s untimely injury has also raised question marks on his inclusion in the All-star reserves. Now, if the star forward stays out for three more weeks, the Lakers might try to sign the likes of Blake Griffin (Pistons) or a low-cost Mo Bamba (Magic). If not, Kyle Kuzma or Montrezl Harrell will have to step up. But what about the All-stars? The three most probable All-star replacements for Lakers’ Anthony Davis This isn’t the first time AD might pull out of the All-stars.

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — There’s very little doubt Arizona’s Ketel Marte will be a good baseball player this season. He can hit for average, steal bases, smash homers and play multiple defensive positions at a high level. But if the Diamondbacks want to bounce back from a disappointing 2020 season, they probably don’t just need the good version of Marte. They need the great one. The 27-year-old has already proven that’s possible. He had a breakout season in 2019, making the NL All-Star team and finishing fourth in the MVP voting after batting .329 with 32 homers, 36 doubles and 92 RBIs while playing above-average defense at second base and center field. Early in D-backs spring camp this week, the switch-hitter flashed a few sweet left-handed swings during batting practice, launching the ball over the right-field wall. “It’s impressive,” infielder Asdrubal Cabrera said. “He’s got the talent to be...

    Close to a year ago, life as we previously knew it changed overnight as the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States. As cases arrived and spread across Minnesota, many of our daily routines came to a screeching halt as difficult choices were made in our communities over whether to continue functioning as “normal.” As a private Catholic high school based in Victoria, determining what our “normal” should look like was the immediate question. We understood the seriousness of COVID-19, and saw the pain and risk experienced by many as a result. We also knew that to continue in-person learning as safely and effectively as before, we would need to do so with the full support of our teachers, staff, students and their families.

    After debuting its new Industry Cloud service with a suite of tools for the healthcare sector last year and unveiling a Retail-specific version in January, Microsoft is ready to introduce more areas of focus.

    One of the biggest challenges when playing Dungeons & Dragons, or any other role-playing game for that matter, is what to do when a player character dies. Does the party immediately rush off to the nearest temple to magically revive them, or does the player roll up a new character and press on? Perhaps the Dungeon Master (DM) wants to help orchestrate something more complex. The next campaign book from Wizards of the Coast, titled Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft, promises plenty of interesting solutions to the inconvenience of death. You can even take a few of them for a test drive before the book comes out. Van Richten’s Guide will introduce a new type of character template to D&D, called lineages. According to the book’s lead designer, Wes Schneider, lineages can be used in character creation, and as a hedge against character death — especially in the worlds of...

    On Tuesday, when I came inside from hitting some flip wedges (that’s golf talk) in the rough off the the15th fairway behind our home in Brentwood, Tenn., my wife Janis told me about Tiger Woods’ car wreck. My mind somewhat eerily went to Van Horn, Texas on February 2, 1949 and another car wreck. Golf legend Ben Hogan was almost killed in an automobile accident on that February day near Van Horn, about 80 miles from my boyhood home of Odessa. In fact, the accident would have left him dead had he not thrown himself toward the passenger side of his new black Cadillac and in so doing also helped to save his wife Valerie’s life. The driver’s side of Hogan’s car was crushed by the front bumper of a Greyhound bus, which pinned the steering wheel against the back seat where Hogan’s chest would have been had he not thrown himself...

    (CNN)Over the last year, people have made so many sacrifices to protect their health, from taking care of kids amid school closures to staying isolated from our elderly loved ones. Concerns about family health have driven many of us to great lengths to ensure we stay safe during this public health crisis.We turned fear into action and that is worth applauding. The question is, can we take that pandemic mindset and apply it to other grave risks to our health?Kathy GiustiOne of the most pernicious of all such threats is cancer. Around one in three Americans will get cancer in their lifetime. We tend to think about cancer as something directed by fate or another force we cannot control.

    California can enforce its landmark net neutrality law after a federal judge ruled Tuesday against a group of broadband providers seeking to block it. The state passed the stringent regulations in 2018 after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rolled back the Obama-era rule prohibiting service providers from selectively discriminating against online traffic. The state law -- SB 822 -- had also been challenged by the Trump administration, which argued that states do not have authority to set net neutrality rules. The Biden administration dropped that legal challenge earlier this month, leaving the court case by telecommunications industry trade groups as the last roadblock to the bill’s implementation. Judge John Mendez, appointed to the bench by former President George W. Bush, declined to grant the industry request for a preliminary injunction on Tuesday, The Associated Press reported. The challenge will continue to be evaluated by the court, but California can enforce its...

    By ELDAR EMRIC, Associted Press VISEGRAD, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Environmental activists in Bosnia are warning that tons of garbage floating down the Balkan country’s rivers are endangering the local ecosystem and people’s health. The Drina River, located on the border between Bosnia and Serbia, has been covered for weeks with trash that has piled up faster than the authorities can clear it out. Weeks of wet winter weather that swelled the Drina and its tributaries pulled plastic bottles, rusty barrels, used tires, old furniture and other rubbish into the water. Near the eastern Bosnian town of Visegrad, islands of garbage can be seen floating on the emerald-colored water as they advance toward the dam of the local hydroelectric power plant. Activists say the situation is similar for miles up and downstream from Visegrad. “This is a problem of huge proportions,” warned Dejan Furtula of the local environmental group Eko Centar...
    David J. Phillip/AP Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.Last week, during a historic and catastrophic winter storm that brought snow and ice to Texas, the state’s independent and unregulated power grid collapsed. At the height of the storm, more than 4 million people were without electricity and in the ensuing days water supply issues left 14 million people without potable water. As pipes froze and burst damaging homes and businesses, the food supply also took a hit with stockpiles spoiling in warm refrigerators and delivery trucks unable to deliver much-needed products to the grocery stores. As the devastation unfolded, the unbridled blame game began. Of course, it was all about politics. In a desperate move, the GOP falsely tried to blame the mess in Texas on the Green New Deal—which only exists conceptually,...

    YouTube is announcing “supervised experiences,” a new set of restrictions that allows parents to better control what content their children can access on the streaming video platform. According to a blog post, YouTube hopes the filters will help parents slowly introduce their older children to age-appropriate content and features outside of the YouTube Kids app. The program will launch first with an early beta, with a wider beta rolling out “in the coming months.” Parents have three levels of strictness to choose from, which determines the content a child is allowed to view on their account. There’s the “Explore” level, which YouTube says is “generally suitable” for kids nine and up’ “Explore More,” which is meant for kids 13 and up; and “Most of YouTube,” which is pretty much everything except age-restricted content. In the US, and most other countries, people over the age of 13 can make their own...
    (CNN)California's net neutrality law can go into effect after a federal judge on Tuesday handed a defeat to broadband providers who had pushed to overturn the law.The move is a major victory for internet activists and state legislators who had passed tough new regulations in 2018 after the Federal Communications Commission rolled back its own net neutrality rules. The state regulations prohibit internet service providers from selectively blocking, slowing or speeding up apps and websites.Now, as the litigation continues, California can finally enforce its state law, SB 822, which has been described by industry watchers as the strongest of its kind in the country and has been seen as a model for other states. The decision could also build momentum into the effort to restore net neutrality rules at the federal level.

    Postmenopausal women who ditch meat in preference of plant-based alternatives are less likely to die prematurely, research has found.  Eating nuts in place of red meat, poultry, dairy, eggs and fish was linked with lower risk of early death in a landmark study.  Meanwhile, eating nuts instead of eggs slashed the likelihood of dying in the study by 47 per cent whereas switching red meat and dairy out for nut-based meals reduced the risk of early death by 11 and 12 per cent, respectively.  Research conducted by the American Heart Association also found vegan women who use nuts to get their dietary protein were 56 per cent less likely to die from cardiovascular disease.   While the study did not look at reason for the link, the researchers hope the findings will encourage older women to consider incorporating more nuts into their diet in place of other proteins.   Scroll down for...

    Duke basketball is surging at the right time as the Blue Devils look to play their way in the NCAA Tournament and continue their streak to 25 consecutive trips to March Madness. After being left for dead a few weeks ago it looks like the Duke Blue Devils have a good chance to reach the NCAA Tournament. A well-timed four-game winning streak, including this week’s blowout of Syracuse and a one-point triumph against Virginia, has elevated the Blue Devils back into the bubble conversation. It seems like the first path is certainly the easier one for Duke and the fact that the Blue Devils have national name recognition may unconsciously bias the selection committee to give their resume more weight than a similar one from a program with lesser national pedigree. The magic number of wins for the Blue Devils appears to be 15, which should be enough to punch...
    By Cara Murez HealthDay Reporter (HealthDay) WEDNESDAY, Feb. 24, 2021 (HealthDay News) -- Anyone who gets frequent migraine symptoms knows the experience: the throbbing, the pain, the visual disturbances. Exercise has long been a potential way to reduce migraine triggers, but a new study suggests it could be an especially effective with triggers such stress, depression and trouble sleeping. "It's a complex relationship, but we know that exercise, generally speaking, helps increase levels of good neurotransmitters, like dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, which contribute to not only fewer headaches, but also better mood and overall well-being," said study author Dr. Mason Dyess, senior fellow at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Exercise also improves heart health and that helps with weight management, which is also associated with better migraine control, Dyess said. The study included more than 4,600 people diagnosed with migraine. About 75% had 15 or more migraines a month....
    EDMONDS, Wash. (AP) — The city of Edmonds lost another legal battle this week in its effort to enforce a statute telling residents how to store their guns. A three-judge state appeals panel ruled unanimously that the city ordinance “regardless of its arguable benefits to public safety” is “unambiguously” pre-empted by state law and provisions of Initiative 1639, a gun safety measure passed by voters in November 2018, The Daily Herald reported. “My reaction is one of relief,” said Brett Bass, one of three residents who challenged the law with help from the National Rifle Association and the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation. Monday’s ruling affirms an October 2019 decision by Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Anita Farris preventing the ordinance’s enforcement. An appeal to the state Supreme Court could be the city's next step. Councilwoman Adrienne Fraley-Monillas said the city is looking at the ruling and what to do next....
    Red Bull had arguably the strongest driver pairing in 2018 when Daniel Ricciardo partnered Max Verstappen. Both the racers were on a similar wavelength and pushed each other to get the best results for the team. But ever since Ricciardo left for greener pastures, it hasn’t been quite the same. They have tried and failed to replace him these past couple of seasons from within their famed driver academy. When it didn’t work, they finally gave up and looked outside the pool, landing on Sergio Perez. F1 presenter Will Buxton believes that will prove to be a masterstroke for them.

    LIVE OAK, Fla. (AP) — Florida water management officials approved a permit Tuesday for a company that wants to pump nearly 1 million gallons a day from a spring to make bottled water. The Suwannee River Water Management District's seven-member board unanimously approved a new permit for Seven Springs Water, the Tampa Bay Times reported. The board had denied the permit last year, but a state administrative law judge later ruled that they must reconsider. The board’s decision renews an expired water use permit for Seven Springs to provide water from Ginnie Springs, northwest of Gainesville on the Santa Fe River, for bottling operations to Nestlé, which produces the Zephyrhills and Pure Life brands. The company had previously been withdrawing water from the springs in lower amounts. Nestlé, a Swiss multinational food and beverage company, said the springs could accommodate its pumping and pledged to work with local officials to...

    Padres majority owner Peter Seidler couldn’t make it any clearer. He doesn’t think San Diego is a small market, but rather views it for what it is, the eighth-largest city in the United States.

Outsiders have questioned how the Padres will be able to afford the $340 million, 14-year contract they gave electrifying shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. on Monday, the longest deal in baseball history.

The decision heralds the latest victory for the state after the Department of Justice dropped its legal challenge against the legislation, which has been in limbo since 2018. Several telecoms trade groups had filed their own lawsuit to block the net neutrality law. But in the latest hearing held on Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge John Mendez expressed concern over the lack of industry regulation in the wake of the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality rules that applied nationwide, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Judge rejected a push for an injunction from the trade groups and ruled that the law would be allowed to take effect. The four trade groups behind the...

    THEY might take up twice the storage space on our iPhone - but we love still love a live photo for capturing cute, candid pictures. That said, one perk we've never considered is that they might one day help us catch a criminal red-handed. 4The mum-to-be noticed her gift cards were missing money at the end of her baby showerCredit: TikTok Earlier this week, a TikTok user explained how she caught a waiter stealing money from her sister's baby shower when she looked back at the live photos from the day.

    PIERS Morgan couldn't stop laughing on today's Good Morning Britain after "deviant" Dr Hilary Jones "revealed" his "intimate body piercings". The 67-year-old GP managed to put an end to 55-year-old Piers' bickering with co-host Susanna Reid over tattoos with the deadpan joke. 5Piers could not contain his laughter as Dr Hilary's deadpan response Yesterday, the outspoken host divided viewers when he lashed out at a headteacher who has a full tattoo sleeve - accusing his high standing within a school despite the inkings of being "drop in standards". The debate continued into this morning's show, with Susanna continuing to insist that Piers was being unreasonable and that tattoos have no impact on somebody's ability to perform any job to a high standard. As the argument grew more heated, Piers turned to the show's medical expert Dr Hilary and asked: "Hilary, have you got any tattoos?" Without missing a beat, the...
    New York : Berries are rich in vitamin C, which supports the growth and function of immune cells Photo: Blandine JOANNIC / Pixabay The immune system is influenced by a balance of many factors, including diet.

    Getty Brooklyn's Bruce Brown reacts with Kevin Durant after making a 3-pointer in a game against the Orlando Magic at Barclays Center on January 16, 2021 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. Tuesday at Barclays Center was the Bruce Brown show. The Brooklyn Nets starter managed to outshine All-Star teammates James Harden and Kyrie Irving with his dazzling performance against the Sacramento Kings. But even Brown didn’t realize just how dazzling his performance was — not until he looked up at the scoreboard toward the end of Brooklyn’s 127-118 win, its seventh straight. Bruce Brown Shocked… By His Own Performance Clearly, Brown was lost in the moment. The 24-year-old guard, whom the Pistons selected in the second round of the 2018 draft before he was traded to the Nets in November, was 11-for-13 shooting from the field, 2-for-3 from 3-point range and 5-of-5 from the foul...
    Tucker Can’t Seem to Find QAnon: ‘It’s Not Even a Website!’
    Fox News host Tucker Carlson suggested on Tuesday night that there was no evidence the QAnon conspiracy theory exists, claiming his team spent “all day trying to locate” it, learned it isn’t “even a website,” and “could not find it.” QAnon, for those still unaware, is an unhinged and dangerous cult that believes there is a satanic cabal of powerful pedophiliac Democrats and liberals feeding off the lifeblood of young children—and that former President Donald Trump is on a secret mission to take them down. In the wake of the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot, which featured a number of QAnon adherents who felt duty-bound to keep Trump in power, Carlson has repeatedly referenced the conspiracy on his program. While most of the time he’s mentioned QAnon to mock mainstream news’ coverage of it, insisting any concern over the cult-like behavior of its followers is overblown, he’s also rallied to...

    By ADAM BEAM, Associated Press SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A federal judge on Tuesday ruled that California can for the first time enforce its tough net neutrality law, clearing the way for the state to ban internet providers from slowing down or blocking access to websites and applications that don't pay for premium service. Former Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill in 2018, making California the first state to pass a net neutrality law. Open internet advocates hoped the law would spur Congress and other states to follow suit. The Trump administration quickly sued to block the law, which prevented it from taking effect for years while the case was tied up in court. The Biden administration dropped that lawsuit earlier this month. But in a separate lawsuit, the telecom industry asked a federal judge to keep blocking the law. On Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge John A. Mendez denied...
    By Jim Mustain and David B. Caruso | Associated Press NEW YORK — Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. fought for a year and a half to get access to former President Donald Trump’s tax records. Now, thanks to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling, he will soon have them. But what will that mean for the Democrat’s grand jury investigation into Trump’s business affairs? Former prosecutors say the trove of records could give investigators new tools to determine whether Trump lied to lenders or tax officials, before or after he took office. “Prosecutors look for discrepancies in paperwork. For example, if Trump told the IRS he’s broke and lenders that he’s rich that’s just the type of discrepancy they could build a case around,” said Duncan Levin, a former federal prosecutor who worked on a wide range of white collar cases as Vance’s chief of asset forfeiture. “These documents...
    Whether Tiger Woods ever plays another golf tournament is irrelevant now. The Masters in April? Who cares? His pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ record 18 major championships? So what? What matters most in the wake of his horrific car accident on Tuesday in the Los Angeles area is not Tiger Woods the golfer, but Tiger Woods the human being. You’ve probably seen the chilling images of the wreckage on TV and the internet. Woods’ Genesis courtesy car mangled and lying in the woods on its driver’s side. His Nike luggage strewn on the dirt outside the vehicle. The front grill of the SUV, license plate still attached, along with the “Welcome to Rolling Hills Estates’’ sign, sheared in half, both lying in the street. Rescuers had to extricate Woods from the vehicle out of the windshield, which had to be shattered and removed. A...
    EFE videos Caracas, the city without running water Caracas, Feb 23 (EFE) .- Jeanette Celis longs for the rain to fall on the depressed Caracas neighborhood of La Vega one afternoon in late February. The water has not come out for months when you turn on the taps, as in much of Venezuela, and the water that falls from the sky could well fill the half dozen empty tanks you have at home. On the roof of his house, a sheet of zinc transformed into a gutter is capable of collecting rainwater and diverting it to a huge tank outside the house. “My husband is very intelligent to do these things,” Celis tells Efe, showing the rudimentary system, which is repeated in all the houses in La Vega. “He managed to do this, (but it works) more than anything when it rains. Piped water is impossible (to have),” adds the...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — It was the first day back in class for thousands of students in the Natomas Unified School District – and even though there wasn’t a lot of instruction today, parents gave it high marks. “It’s lovely,” said Lianna Ketleson. “I wish it was all day every day, but we will take what we can get.” Ketleson couldn’t contain her excitement as she drove off after dropping her daughter off for her first day back at Paso Verdes School. “It feels awesome to see all my friends and to be in the school,” said Grace Ketleson. Hundreds of students lined up for their first day of in-person class in nearly a year. “They will practice routine like keeping distance when they are exiting [and] entering their classrooms, doing hand washing demos inside their classrooms, looking at how distanced their desks are,” said Tanja Jarrell, Paso Verdes’ principal. Students are...
