    So, you are looking to add a new member to your family. You want to adopt a dog, but you aren’t quite sure if you can handle all that puppy energy. Dogs don’t start to grow out of this puppy stage until they are around three or four years old. According to most vets, a dog falls into the “senior” category at around seven years old (though this changes depending on the size of the dog). Why not consider adopting one of these amazing animals? Because most dog adopters are looking for puppies or young adults, senior dogs are typically the last to be adopted and the first to fall victim to euthanasia at shelters. If you are searching for a loving, loyal companion, look no further than that gray muzzle and sweet eyes looking up at you. Not only will you be saving an animal’s life if you choose to adopt a senior pup, but there are some substantial benefits of bringing a more mature dog into your home as compared to a bouncing puppy.

    "Ultimately though, what we are seeing here is not some sort of outrageous change of behavior by the DOJ," she explained. "This is actually their existing way that they deal with requests like this. They typically stonewall, they typically hold all the cards. They never want to show a target or a defendant what they have. And they are very rarely held accountable, including by magistrate judges." Dhillon added that especially in cases that involve national security — a category into which Trump's case falls — the search warrant affidavit is "restricted" to the defendant and their counsel. In fact, the Justice Department argued the exact point Dhillon made, namely that a redacted affidavit will not provide the public any new information. The government said in a court filing this week:The government has carefully considered whether the affidavit can be released subject to redactions. For the reasons discussed below, the redactions necessary to mitigate harms to the integrity of the investigation would be so extensive as to render the remaining unsealed text devoid of meaningful content, and the release of...
    IF the empty area between your kitchen cabinets and ceiling drives you mad, you aren't alone. Plenty of people are frustrated by the "wasted space" in those gaps. But before you hire a contractor to extend them, or take on the job yourself, learn why so many homes sport the unused space and how to make the most of it. 1There are plenty of reasons to leave space above your kitchen cabinets, experts saidCredit: Getty Interior experts at House Digest confirmed that kitchen storage is a point of frustration for many homeowners, but there are reasons cabinets are constructed a certain way. If you love having a large, open kitchen, you can probably thank the space above your cabinets for emphasizing the size. "Some people think that too many cabinets can make a space look overly crowded or cluttered," the experts explained. When you have a smaller kitchen, this becomes doubly important. Some open, unused space makes the room feel bigger than it is. READ MORE HOME TIPSSHELF-CARE I’m a DIY expert – how I transformed the area above my...
    A top academic journal has required its researchers to detail how 'sex and gender' were taken into account for each of their individual studies. The guidance, put into effect by top brass at Nature last week, also demands personnel look into how their findings 'might perpetuate gender stereotypes' before publishing any results, officials announced last week. 'From now on, researchers who submit papers to a subset of Nature Portfolio journals will be prompted to state whether and how sex and gender were considered in their study design,' bosses at the prestigious British journal wrote in a post announcing the policy last week.

    The majority of players gamble either for fun and entertainment or to make a profit. With the gambling industry experiencing advancement in technology and innovation in the past couple of years, the traditional way of gambling which involves visiting a bookie or physical location before you can play your favourite games, is going extinct. Online bookies have taken over the industry by storm. While some have established a reputation themselves, the new and upcoming ones need to be vetted appropriately before choosing. If the goal of participating in gambling is to make a profit, it is then essential to research intensively the bookmaker you decide to deposit your money. Consider the following factors before choosing and playing with any bookmaker; Licensing Before registering and eventually playing with any bookmaker online, it is necessary to find specific information. Licensing status is one of such. When a bookmaker obtains a license, it implies that it is willing to operate by the laws governing the gambling industry in the place where it operates. This will assure you that they’ll be ethical in their...
    CHICAGO (WLS) -- While Whoopi Goldberg is away from "The View," leaders in the Jewish community said they hope she takes the time to continue to educate herself about the Holocaust."Even though we are now 77-plus years away from the end of the Holocaust, there are still a lot of misconceptions about what happened during that time period," said Kelley Szany, vice president of education and exhibitions at the Illinois Holocaust Museum.SEE ALSO | What is antisemitism?

    We have been living in a COVID-19 pandemic world for two years – and almost everything about our lives has been affected. Travel and holidays in particular have been constrained through border closures and lockdowns. It’s too early to say what effect this may have on overseas travel long term. But one form of travel that is forecast to grow in popularity is pilgrimage. Often described as “a journey with a purpose or a journey with an intention”, a pilgrimage is different from a plain old walk or hike as it tends to be about following a particular path with religious, spiritual or historical significance. Pilgrimages are a way of finding spiritual solace and a chance to connect with the great outdoors. Indeed, since the pandemic began, many of us have spent more time close to mountains, rivers, waterfalls and parks, for psychological recovery, spiritual recharge, and as a form of meaningful travel. New and repurposed pilgrimages have also emerged in many destinations including Scotland, India, Japan, England and Italy. While some routes have historical origins, others are...
    Phynart Studio | E+ | Getty Images For military veterans, turning 65 can come with a health-care decision: Whether to sign up for Medicare. Those who use Tricare and plan to enroll in Tricare for Life — an insurance program administered by the Defense Department — generally have no choice: The latter is only available in conjunction with Medicare Part A (hospital coverage) and Part B (outpatient care coverage). Yet for vets who rely on benefits from the Veterans Health Administration, the decision could be less clear. "My dad is a Vietnam-era war veteran and when he was turning 65, he asked me if he should just use the VA and save those premiums for Part B and D [prescription drug coverage]," said Danielle Roberts, co-founder of insurance firm Boomer Benefits.If you have just the VA coverage, and they can't see you until next week, you'll be stuck.Danielle RobertsCo-founder of Boomer Benefits"He didn't want to spend the money but I insisted and … I've been very glad I did," Roberts said.

    Cynthia Erivo Calls New Children’s Book ‘a Dream Come True’ The Best and Worst Deals at Costco Three weeks isn’t long enough to permanently damage a young QB’s career. But there are consequences for a QB having too much patience with the team that drafted them. Matt Nagy appeared at his press conference refreshed on Wednesday, saying that the last 72 hours were full of honest and raw conversations between members of the coaching staff with one another, and members of the coaching staff with the players. “I’m getting tested to see where I’m at with this,” he said. Nagy struck the correct tone, appearing as humbled and mindful as any coach in the fourth week of a difficult season. Like other coaches, though, he remained expectedly secretive about what kind of changes will come from those revelatory 72 hours, whether he would remain the team’s play caller, whether the conversations lead to changes on the offensive line, or who will be the team’s starting quarterback on Sunday. As of now, Dalton remains the team’s first-string quarterback, with Fields...
    The food industry is one of the most lucrative any entrepreneur can delve into. With steady growth over the past decade, market specialists say it’s unlikely the space will face any depreciation soon. Australian named, “Mayo Mogul,” Peter Tri certainly recognized the opportunity when founding 8 Food, a condiment manufacturing company based in Melbourne. He’s found great success in the space, having a current estimated net worth of over $37M. Still, Tri says the food industry is fierce and packed with competition.

It’s something the Mayo Mogul has experienced first hand. But despite the struggles, Tri has managed to build a truly magnificent company, sitting among Australia’s top 10 condiment manufacturing companies, and supplying over 6,000 stores nationally.

    Getty HGTV star Mina Starsiak Hawk poses at the premiere of "A Very Brady Renovation" in 2019. HGTV personality Mina Starsiak Hawk recently opened up about being a working mother. During a July interview on the “HGTV Obsessed” podcast, the “Good Bones” star shared how she manages to host a popular home renovation show, be the owner of Two Chicks and a Hammer, and take care of her children Jack, 3, and Charlotte, who was born in September 2020. The host of “HGTV Obsessed,” Marianne Canada, asked Hawk “how has [her] work-life balance shifted since [she] had two kids,” and encouraged her to “share [her] secrets.” The 36-year-old responded that mothers who work outside the home are often presented with this question, whereas their male partners are not. She noted that her husband, Steve Hawk, who she wed in 2016, “hears these interviews [she does] and says no one asks [him],” despite also being “a full time working parent.” “Steve and I both work full time, neither of us really ever had the desire to be stay-at-home parents,...
    Why the New York Giants should heavily consider signing OL Austin Reiter Alexander Wilson August 10, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit With injuries and retirement plaguing the New York Giants currently, investing more in their offensive line is a priority. Having no established players featuring in the trenches, quarterback Daniel Jones could be in for another tough season in 2021. Last year, the Giants posted the league’s worst pass blocking unit, and instead of adding more talent, they allowed their best lineman to depart in free agency, cutting Kevin Zeitler to save cap space. The coaching staff is expecting their youth to take a significant step forward, including Andrew Thomas at left tackle, Matt Peart at right tackle, Shane Lemieux at left guard, and Will Hernandez at right guard. However, Monday’s practice saw reserve lineman Jonotthan Harrison working on the side with trainers, indicating more issues in the depth department. With that being said, the Giants might consider bringing in former Kansas City...
    Bill and Melinda GatesFrederic Stevens | Getty Images Sure, you likely have nowhere near the wealth held by divorcing couple Bill and Melinda Gates. Yet when it comes to protecting your assets ahead of marriage, that doesn't particularly matter, experts say. If you plan to wed, it may be worth determining how you and your spouse would each protect your assets and financial interests in case you end up going your separate ways.

    Buying food that is locally grown from your farmer’s market or local grocer is a great way to minimize your environmental impact, but growing your own food takes it to the next level. The easiest way to imagine how growing your own food reduces your carbon footprint and benefits the planet is to think of food production and distribution in terms of an empty jar. The fuller the jar is, the greater the environmental impact, and the more components involved in producing your food and bringing your food to your plate. Fossil Fuels and Fresh Produce When you take into account the typical energy cost of transporting food to your local grocer, it is estimated that an average distance of 1,500 miles is traveled before the food is consumed. This large-scale, long-distance transportation of food relies heavily on the energy from burning fossil fuels. In fact, it is estimated that we currently put nearly 10 kilo calories of fossil fuel energy into our food system for every one kilo-calorie of energy we get as food. Why is this bad? Of the many public health and environmental risks associated...

    Why the New York Giants should not even consider cutting Jabrill Peppers By: Anthony Rivardo March 9, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants are in a tricky salary cap situation. The team placed the franchise tag on Leonard Williams which will account for over $19 million in cap space. The Giants do not even have that much cap space, so they will need to make some cuts to fit Williams under. New York has already starting making cuts to clear cap space. Golden Tate, David Mayo, and Cody Core were all cap casualties. Levine Toilolo’s contract was also restructered to free up some 2021 cap space. But the Giants have a lot more space to clear if they want to sign Leonard Williams and any other free agentss. Rumors and speculation have begun regarding the many different players that could be cap casualties in the 2021 offseason. One surprising and confusing name that has been floated out there is starting safety Jabrill Peppers. Why cutting Jabrill Peppers is a terrible idea Cutting...
    During the past year, when covid-19 hit our country, motorcycles became a key element in combating infections, as many people opted for these vehicles to move and get away from public transport and others took advantage of the boom in deliveries to home, generated by confinement, to self-employment, which helped to sharply increase sales. Despite this, the issue of prevention continues to be of concern, because, according to the Mexican Association of Insurance Institutions (AMIS), only one in 10 motorcycles is insured, which has a direct impact on the finances of Mexican families. Many of those who acquired a motorcycle may consider a policy of this type as an economic burden, since they are usually more expensive than those of a car; however, it is a financial protection mechanism, since in an accident it can lead to loss of assets. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), motorcyclists, along with pedestrians and cyclists, are the users of public roads who suffer the most from road accidents, becoming a health problem in the world. For this reason,...

    Getty Images James Harden and the Houston Rockets are splitsville but will the Boston Celtics step in with an offer?

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Xavier Becerra has an extensive political resume. Current California Attorney General, former United States representative and if confirmed, the first Latino to lead the Department of Health and Human Services.

    This Saturday, Errol Spence Jr will defend his WBC and IBF welterweight titles against Danny Garcia in a highly anticipated fight.

The WBO welterweight champion, Terence Crawford, is one of them. ‘Bud’ shed some light on this fight. In an interaction with fans, he said, “If you know boxing, why should we consider Danny Garcia a top welterweight in the division? Can somebody tell me that? That’s my point, I hate no one of them.

    As if it needed any explanation, Carmelo Anthony explained why he didn’t consider a reunion with the New York Knicks. At this stage of his career, Carmelo Anthony’s top priority should be chasing that elusive first ring with a playoff contender.

    The Mozilla Foundation is one of the “good guys” of internet freedom and digital security—if you’re in the know. For your average internet user who doesn’t know much about internet service providers (ISPs), encryption, or whatever“Wi-Fi” means, then they’re just the folks behind the really fast Google Chrome alternative Mozilla Firefox, if that.  Hide In a world dominated by giant tech corporations that make money off your data, it’s understandable that a nonprofit that serves as the antithesis to Amazon, Facebook, and Google isn’t exactly front-and-center.

    “ ‘The claim that a frog placed in slowly warming water will die without trying to escape is factually incorrect, but too useful a metaphor to discard. We have been slowly raising the temperatures on 401(k)s for 40 years, and we’re nearing the point that they no longer make sense for workers.’ ” That’s Aaron Brown, author and former managing director at AQR Capital Management, explaining in an op-ed for Bloomberg News why retirement savers might want to reconsider their 401(k)s. And it isn’t because, as Donald Trump warned earlier this month, your nest egg could “disintegrate and disappear” if Joe Biden wins the presidency. Let’s get back to the frog metaphor. “I don’t know which is worse, if the worker frog jumps out and thereby exacerbates the middle-class retirement savings problem,” he wrote, “or if the worker frog stays in and finds its retirement plan eroded by unexpected effects of fees and taxes. So let’s turn off the heat and add some cold water.” Brown explained that the tax advantage enjoyed by those investing in 401(k)s...
    (CNN)President Donald Trump said a lot of wild things during his interview on Sunday with Fox News' Chris Wallace. But he said one thing that should truly scare every single citizen of this country. Here's the exchange between Wallace and Trump:Wallace: But can you give a, can you give a direct answer you will accept the election? Trump: I have to see. Look, you -- I have to see. No, I'm not going to just say yes. I'm not going to say no, and I didn't last time either.Yeah, not good. Especially when you consider that right before this back-and-forth happened, Trump told Wallace this: "I think mail-in voting is going to rig the election. I really do." (Side note: There is zero evidence of widespread voter fraud in mail-in or absentee voting. None.)Read More THE POINT -- NOW ON YOUTUBE!

    Everett Collection Have you ever wondered what investment today is the most out of favor? Most of us never even ask this question, since such investments by definition don’t even appear on our radar screens. But, as contrarians constantly remind us, we are vulnerable to making big mistakes by blindly following the consensus, as well as to missing some truly once-in-a-generation opportunities. A great example is U.S. Treasurys in 1981, when inflation had been running in the double-digits for several years, the 10-year T-Note yielded close to 16%, and you could hardly give Treasurys away. Retirees who decades previously had invested their portfolios in bonds had suffered what some had described as the biggest destructions of wealth in history. One who nevertheless turned bullish was Dan Seiver, currently a member of the economics faculty at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, Calif., and editor of the PAD System Report advisory service. Seiver says that his investment helped pay for his daughter’s Ivy League tuition. The question with which I led my column can perhaps be rephrased: Which investment is...

    (CNN)It was around four to six million years ago when humans first evolved to walk upright. We continued to evolve into superb long-distance walkers and runners, made possible by our arched feet, long achilles tendon, and ability to cool through sweating. And surprisingly, for most of human history this long distance travel was done barefoot.Some evidence suggests footwear emerged around 30,000 years ago. But it wasn't until about 100 years ago that fashionable footwear was reported to be altering the shape of the foot. Since the 1970s, cushioned running shoes have become synonymous with exercise.But a growing body of evidence shows running shoes might actually be doing us more harm than good. Our latest review suggests that wearing shoes changes the way we run and weakens the foot in a way that can contribute to many common sports injuries.Barefoot runners can start youngPreviously, our team revealed that we can still run barefoot, especially if we start young. We found that not only could children in New Zealand ages 12-19 run sprint and middle-distance races barefoot, we also found the prevalence...
