Subscribe to our print magazine.Asking questions about the ethics of something you’re already doing can be a useful evasion. Still, it’s a dodge. Just own it. But let me ask for your feedback. I’m curious. Is this is ad? When I say this, I am asking: Is this post from erstwhile New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof’s Substack “asking for feedback on an ethics question” actually just an ad for his new cider? Is it a bizarre way to avoid admitting the normal fact he wants people to buy his alcohol? Is it a wild attempt to unnecessarily pre-empt blowback?  Thoughts? Mostly I inflict my views on others; this time Im asking for your views about an ethical question of my own. Is it OK for someone like me who has highlighted the toll of addiction and alcoholism to be raising wine grapes and cider apples? https://t.co/e9pdZVZXey Thoughts? — Nicholas Kristof (@NickKristof) June 14, 2022   In case it helps inform your opinion,...
    There were always two objectives for the Platinum Jubilee, one easy, the other more complex. The easy one is applauding the Queen. With only four days to go until the start of the big Jubilee weekend, the sense of excitement and patriotism is here for all to see. Thousands of street parties have been organised from village greens to city centres, high streets are awash with Union Flags, flowers and bunting. If you want to assess the popularity of the Queen, look around. Her Majesty must be the only world leader more popular today – 70 years after she took the job – than she was on the day she began. Presidents and prime ministers are lucky if they remain popular for seven months. Already she is the longest-serving monarch in our islands’ story, and her reign spans one of the most remarkable and transformative periods of history. And therein lies the more complex challenge. How to tell the story of the United Kingdom over the Queen’s seven-decade reign from the post-war privations of the 1950s, through flower power and...
    Lamar Bell doesn’t claim remarkable foresight for recruiting Nicholas Morrow. Morrow played offensive lineman for his first three seasons at Huntsville (Ala.) High School before switching to outside linebacker as a senior, but Bell saw enough film to know Morrow would be one of the better athletes on the then-Greenville College Panthers defense. An NFL opportunity — much less a career entering its sixth season— wasn’t a topic of conversation. Bell, then a defensive graduate assistant and now the associate head coach/defensive coordinator, talked with Morrow about becoming a biology major and potentially entering the medical field because Division III players almost always have to plan for life off the field after college. Morrow didn’t have many other offers. Though he lived in Hunstville, his family was from St. Louis, about 45 miles southwest of the school now known as Greenville University. Morrow’s father is a pastor, and Greenville is a Christian school. Those three factors were enough for coaches to draw him in. And that’s how the newest Chicago Bears linebacker ended up starting what he called a “humbling”...
    IF I asked you to have a guess at which Russian leader thought it was his right to wage war across Europe, grow Russia’s “sphere of influence” and interfere with other sovereign states, you would think it was Vladimir Putin. Of course, you would be correct. But it might surprise you that around 170 years ago there was another such Russian leader, Tsar Nicholas I. 3Vladimir Putin has no real allies, Ben Wallace says 3Over 170 years ago there was another such Russian leader, Tsar Nicholas I He, too, thought force and military might were his path to greatness. He, too, thought his huge armed battalions  invincible. How wrong he was. In 1853, at the culmination of his reign, his army got their arses handed to them on a plate — as I would put it — much to some people’s horror. And it happened  in what is modern-day Ukraine and Crimea. Carry On villains Because for all the parade ground displays his army took part in, they could not defeat the armies of Great Britain, France and Turkey. They simply...
    A man wanted for alleged sex crimes in the US is demanding his bail conditions - which allow police to enter his home at any time - be made 'less stringent'. Lawyers acting for a man alleged to be Nicholas Rossi, 34, passed on the request to prosecutors during a court hearing on Thursday. Solicitor John Good told Edinburgh Sheriff Court that the police are repeatedly calling at the man's house in Woodlands, Glasgow. He said the visits are causing 'difficulties' for the man, who is receiving oxygen treatment after falling seriously ill with Covid-19. Prosecutors say the male who appeared before Sheriff Thomas Welsh QC on Thursday is Nicholas Rossi, who is wanted in the States over an allegation of sexual assault. He is accused of faking his death from cancer in the US to avoid the charge, before fleeing to Scotland - where he was found on a Covid ward allegedly using the alias Arthur Knight.  He was arrested on December 13 last year after being admitted to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow for urgent treatment...
    “None of this is about racism,” Randy, a demonstrator in Ottawa, ON, told Breitbart News while demonstrating in support of the Freedom Convoy. Randy held a sign with the message “CTV-CBC FAKE NEWS” in addition to an American and Canadian flag in his right and left hands, respectively. “I’m here to support the people and support freedom,” Randy said while on Parliament Hill. “I think the politicians should listen to the people and I think that CBC, CTV and every other news agency should simply tell the truth.” Breitbart News invited Randy’s response to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s repeated denigration of Canadians opposed to his politics as “racist” and “misogynistic.” Many Canadian news media outlets repeat such defamation of those dissenting from the Trudeau government.

    A poignant signed photo of the four grand duchesses who were executed during the Russian Revolution has emerged for sale for £45,000.  Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia Romanov posed together around a table for the rare 1913 black and white image. It is dated 1916, suggesting Tsar Nicholas II's daughters autographed it three years later. The photograph which was taken in 1913, featured Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia Romanov posed together around a table. It was signed by the four duchesses in 1916 Tsar Nicholas II, pictured, was the first cousin of Britain's George V, and Russia's last royal leader.

    An American fugitive who faked his own death and assumed a new identity abroad to evade a US rape charge was arrested again - this time wearing an oxygen mask and pajamas.  A news photographer captured the moment Nicholas Alahverdian, 34, was escorted from his Glasgow flat in a wheelchair last Thursday and transported via ambulance to an Edinburgh courthouse after he skipped a scheduled extradition hearing.  Since orchestrating his own death, Alahverdian has been enjoying a new life in Scotland, where he reportedly presented himself as an eccentric Panama hat-wearing university professor from Bristol.  He reportedly introduced himself to neighbors as 'Arthur Knight' - an affable 'academic' with a penchant for a three-piece suit with a pocket square and an upper class British accent. He was a regular at local bars, where he would be seen drinking expensive drams of single-malt whisky and bemoaning Brexit, according to The Times. But in his previous life, Alahverdian is a convicted sex pest accused by numerous people of fraud, sexually deviant behavior, abuse, and extortion. Twice married to American wives, both women filed...
    After playing a short clip from Maher's opening Friday monologue, Whoopi was in prime lecture mode. "How dare you!" Whoopi ridiculously pops off against Bill Maher for anti-mask jokes, tell him to say out of society. Sara Haines joins in by saying masks will be a permanent "new normal" like airport security after 9/11. "I may never ... feel comfortable without a mask."pic.twitter.com/AHjJcKR79c — Nicholas Fondacaro (@Nicholas Fondacaro) 1643042244 "That's not really funny to people who've lost their kids ... or people who have lost family members or dear friends to this," she harangued. "Listen, nobody on the planet really wants to go through this." "This is not something we're doing because it's sexually gratifying," she continued. "We're doing it to protect our families, and you don't have to do it, but stay away from everybody." Whoopi then claimed that Maher is someone forgetting that there are people "at risk" who can't get vaccinated, like ... "little kids under the age of 5." "How dare you be so flippant, man!" she chided. Co-host Sara Haines chimed in with her...
    A US man alleged to be a fugitive on the run from the FBI was found after years spent hiding in Scotland by police matching his tattoos, prosecutors have said. The man, who goes by at least ten other aliases, including Nicholas Alahverdian and Arthur Knight, appeared at a hearing in Edinburgh on Friday in a wheelchair wearing an oxygen mask, pyjamas, a dressing gown and socks. Prosecutors said the man who appeared in court is Nicholas Rossi - the Rhode Island man wanted after fleeing the US in 2017 to evade charges involving identity theft and fraud, and a 2008 sexual assault charge in Utah. But when asked if he could confirm that his name was Nicholas Rossi, he denied it.  Rossi is accused of faking his own death before hiding in Scotland to escape sex charges, only to be arrested twice after almost dying of Covid and then missing his extradition hearing. He has now been remanded in custody. At Friday's hearing, prosecutor Fiscal Jennifer Johnston said police and hospital staff identified the man as being Mr Rossi from tattoos...
    A fugitive who faked his own death to escape sex and fraud charges in the US - only to be nabbed after catching Covid and nearly dying in a Scotland hospital - is on the lam again after skipping a court hearing. Scottish officials confirmed to DailyMail.com yesterday that Nicholas Alahverdian, 34, failed to appear for an extradition hearing at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Thursday and that a warrant has been issued for his arrest.   Alahverdian was arrested on an Interpol notice at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow on December 13. He had checked in under the alias Arthur Knight, and was intubated after nearly dying of the virus.  Although he was under armed guard at hospital, he was released on bail after he recovered and is now on the run. It's not clear why he was released given his history of evading justice, nor was it immediately known when he was set free. Scottish officials did not respond to queries requesting further information on the conditions of Alahverdian's arrest, nor did they say whether he was under police watch....

    by Melissa Chim, General Theological Seminary The poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” better known by its opening line “‘Twas the Night before Christmas,” has a special place among Christmas traditions, right alongside hot chocolate, caroling and bright lights. It has also inspired the modern image of Santa Claus as a jolly old man sporting red and a round belly. But this poem has been steeped in controversy, and debate still looms over who the true author is. Traditionally, Clement C. Moore – a 19th-century scholar at the General Theological Seminary in New York, where I work as a reference librarian – has been credited with writing the poem in 1822 for his children. Every December, library staff shares our multiple copies of the poem in an exhibit to celebrate the holiday season. No matter who wrote it, the poem is a fascinating object that has shaped Christmases past, present – and maybe yet to come.A changing Santa ClausSanta Claus had undergone many makeovers in the Western imagination by the time readers were introduced to “‘Twas the Night before...
    You might know Santa Claus lives in the North Pole with Mrs. Claus and a team of reindeer and elves, but do you actually know where this legendary Christmas character comes from? Historians believe the lore of Jolly Old Saint Nick actually began with Saint Nicholas, an early Christian bishop who’s said to have been generous and kind toward children in 3rd and 4th century Myra. According to History.com, the Greek saint gave away his wealth and traveled the countryside of what is now considered modern-day Turkey. Tales of Nicholas helping people in need were spread for decades, which ultimately led to him becoming one of the most revered saints in all of Europe.  HOW BIG IS SANTA CLAUS? HERE’S HOW TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION FOR KIDS Historians believe the lore of Jolly Old Saint Nick actually began with Saint Nicholas, an early Christian bishop who’s said to have been generous and kind toward children in 3rd and 4th century Myra (modern-day Turkey).

    A disabled teen who has undergone 49 surgeries received 500 Christmas cards from strangers - after his mom put out a request on Facebook in an attempt to 'cheer him up.'   Nicholas Black, 16, from Deland, Florida, has several severe medical conditions and has been forced to spend the festive season living in a hospice. This year, his mom, Elizabeth, 38, wanted to do something to put a smile on his face during the holiday season - so she asked for help on social media. She posted about his diagnosis in a few different Facebook groups and asked people send him some cards - and she was shocked by the response she got.  Delighted Nicholas has now received hundreds of cards in the mail from all around the world - which has 'really brightened his day' and 'given him something to look forward to.'

    Gilhermiers Marine –Journalist Marine has the most select flavors of the big and small screen enthusiasts and cast. Nevertheless, he has a passion for American cinema and swallows everything that comes his way, from the biggest blockbuster to the smallest independent film. Nicholas Cage can shoot a lot, some of his films have been released in theaters recently. An honor will be given to a genius in solid gold, a film in which he plays himself and its first films have now been released. Did Nicholas Cage finish the video directly? Nothing is certain, but let’s take a look at his last film, Big, which was not only released in theaters, but also appeared in competition at the Duville American Film Festival last September. The actor was first announced in the cast of a major studio film after a long hiatus: from Universal to Renfield, in which he played none other than Dracula. But that’s not all, his other weird project will be released in cinema: a talent in Tom Gormigan’s solid gold is expected on April 20, 2022 in...
    In real life, Peter III of Russia was a textbook failson—a dynastic monarch too underwhelming to even earn a superlative before his wife, Catherine the Great, overthrew him in a matter of months. In Hulu’s The Great, Nicholas Hoult makes it easy to hate his oafishly brutal character—but some part of you also can’t help but love to watch him. “He’s childlike,” Hoult said of his character during a recent interview with The Daily Beast. “He’s obviously horrendous in many ways, but also at the same time has such a vitality and weird wit.” For anyone who tuned into Skins, in which Hoult played narcissistic teen Tony Stonem, the 31-year-old’s irrepressible charm comes as no surprise—even in the darkest roles. The Great is no exception—especially in Season 2, which premiered in full Friday on Hulu and opens on a palace in turmoil. Catherine, not yet the Great but soon to ascend, is waging guerrilla warfare against her husband while the couple awaits the birth of a royal heir, Paul. (That unborn baby, by the way, may or may...
    According to a report from the Atlantic's Peter Nicholas, a close adviser to former president Donald Trump admitted they are "rehearsing" arguments intended to convince the former president that another presidential run in 2024 could end in disaster and embarrassment. As Nicholas wrote, despite polls showing Trump to be the odds-on choice to be the Republican Party presidential nominee in 2024, there are signs that there is a building movement against him among conservatives who are being more vocal about moving on without him. Noting the election of Republican Glenn Youngkin as the new governor of Virginia who kept his distance from the twice-impeached former president as one key data point, Nicholas wrote that Trump's influence over GOP lawmakers is showing cracks. According to Nicholas, "If Donald Trump tries to run for president again, one of his former campaign advisers has a plan to dissuade him. Anticipating that Trump may not know who Adlai Stevenson was or that he lost two straight presidential elections in the 1950s, this ex-adviser figures he or someone else might need to explain the man's...
    "Make no mistake: even the strongest of people cannot resist the mental impact when the media war machine targets you," he noted in his piece, adding that given that Rittenhouse's name has been "dragged through the mud," folks have wondered if he should "sue for defamation." Sandmann went over the pros and cons of Rittenhouse suing post-trial based on what he's learned from his defamation suits after the media mischaracterized him amid the January 2019 incident at the Lincoln Memorial. And he encouraged Rittenhouse to go for it — with a few caveats. "So, if Kyle is prepared to take on another burden in his early life, with the acceptance that it might result in nothing, I answer, give it a shot and hold the media accountable," Sandmann wrote, adding that "one of the saddening parts of this media onslaught is that it has taken young people like Kyle and myself to expose how corrupt the media really is." 'I'm here for you' Sandmann added a direct message to Rittenhouse to conclude his op-ed:...
    Nicholas Sandmann, who was 16 years old when the media erroneously reported that he and his fellow students harassed a Native American demonstrator in 2019, has called on Kyle Rittenhouse to do what Sandmann himself did: Sue the media for defamation. Rittenhouse was 17 years old when he shot three men, killing two, during riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man. Rittenhouse is facing multiple charges related to the shootings. Rittenhouse’s attorneys have argued that Rittenhouse was acting in self-defense, while the prosecution has claimed otherwise. As of Tuesday morning, the jury has been deliberating the charges. In an opinion piece in The Daily Mail, Sandmann wrote, “The parallels between me and Kyle Rittenhouse are impossible not to draw.” “Kyle was almost immediately labelled a ‘white supremacist’ and a ‘domestic terrorist,’” said Sandmann. “To many, my red MAGA hat clearly meant that I was a racist. In only hours a CNN host tweeted an image of me, writing: ‘Honest question. Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?.’” That host was Reza Aslan, who was already...
    The parallels between me and Kyle Rittenhouse are impossible not to draw. Kyle was 17-years-old when he became a household name after that terrible tragedy in Kenosha. I was 16-years-old when I was catapulted into the national conversation by video of an encounter with a Native American activist on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Kyle was almost immediately labelled a 'white supremacist' and a 'domestic terrorist'. To many, my red MAGA hat clearly meant that I was a racist.

    (CNN)The season premiere of HBO's "Succession" saw a lot of moves on the chess board that is the Roy family's power struggle. One of the pieces on that board, Greg, the beloved-by-viewers character who lives somewhere on thin border of the family's inner circle, took a place on Team Kendall in the season opener, standing beside him as he launched an attack against Logan. But will he be tempted to realign with his powerful uncle? Will he play both sides? Actor Nicholas Braun was careful with his answers when CNN caught up with him, admitting that he's terrible at teasing plot points. Luckily, in addition to talking about Greg's trajectory, there was much more to chat about. This conversation has been condensed and lightly edited for clarity. CNN: The big question is where Greg's loyalties lie and is particularly concerned about his own safety and security. How does he cope with dilemma that going forward?

    New York (CNN Business)Nicholas Kristof, the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, announced Thursday that he is departing The New York Times (NYT) as he explores a run for governor of Oregon."I've been on the ride of a lifetime with The Times. I've gotten to know presidents and tyrants, Nobel laureates and warlords, while visiting 160 countries. And precisely because I have a great job, outstanding editors and the best readers, I may be an idiot to leave," Kristof said in a statement."But you all know how much I love Oregon, and how much I've been seared by the suffering of old friends there," he added. "So I've reluctantly concluded that I should try not only to expose problems but also see if I can fix them directly."Kristof, who has worked as an opinion columnist since 2001 and is among the newspaper's most prominent journalists, had been on leave since July as he explored whether to run for the office.His move to part ways with The Times signals he has likely made the decision to run.Read More"Few columnists have better embodied the...

    UKRAINIAN VILLAGE — When Serhiy Kovalchuk began preaching at St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral in 2018, he noticed the church’s ornate beauty — and its deteriorating physical condition.  There were holes and cracks, and the roof leaked — sometimes during services — when it rained. Then, in the middle of Mass a few years ago, a piece of stone fell from the church’s vaulted ceiling, crashing just a few feet away from him.  That near miss was a sign extensive repairs were long overdue for the cathedral, 835 N. Oakley Blvd., which has been an anchor of cultural identity in Ukrainian Village for more than a century. A multi-phase renovation is about halfway done, but church leaders still need to raise about $4 million to complete it within the next couple of years. “It was like lightning from God. We really knew we had a problem when Father Serhiy was giving a sermon and a boulder fell out of the ceiling,” said John Skubiak, a lifelong St. Nicholas parishioner. “It was, like, 10 feet from him, and if he was...
    Pete Rose stormed the basepaths during his Major League Baseball career, but don't blame him for the two latest Atlantic gales targeting the East Coast, even though they seem to bear his name. Peter and Rose are the 16th and 17th storms of the season, and both are projected on a possible course toward the already weathered East Coast, according to the latest reports . If the two make landfall, they will do so in the wake of Hurricane Nicholas, which hammered Texas , and Hurricane Ida, which produced notable damage in Louisiana and New York .

    By Juan A. Lozano | Associated Press SURFSIDE BEACH, Texas — Tropical Storm Nicholas slowed to a crawl over southeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana Tuesday after blowing ashore as a hurricane, knocking out power to a half-million homes and businesses and dumping more than a foot of rain along the same area swamped by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Nicholas could potentially stall over storm-battered Louisiana and bring life-threatening floods across the Deep South over the coming days, forecasters said. Nicholas made landfall early Tuesday on the eastern part of the Matagorda Peninsula and was soon downgraded to a tropical storm. It was about 50 miles east of Houston, with maximum winds of 40 mph as of 4 p.m. CDT Tuesday, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. However, weather radar showed the heaviest rain Tuesday afternoon was over southwestern Louisiana, well east of the storm center. The storm is moving east-northeast at 6 mph. A tropical storm warning remained in effect from High Island, Texas, to Cameron, Louisiana. The National Hurricane Center said the storm may continue to slow...

But on that fateful day in September, the church was destroyed in the collapse of the south tower. Very few artifacts were recovered...
