    A grandmother who might receive the kidneys of a death row inmate calls the convicted killer 'brave.'  Judy Frith, a grandmother and cancer survivor in Washington state, is seeking to potentially receive the kidneys of Ramiro Gonzales, who was convicted in 2006 in the rape and murder of 18-year-old Bridget Townsend. 'It's very rare to find somebody that wants to do a live donation in the first place,' Frith said in an interview with NewsNation. 'It's very brave. I think it would be a shame if Mr. Gonzales wants to do that, and he's not allowed to.' Frith, who has been on dialysis for four years, shares the same blood type as Gonzales, Type B. The grandmother shared that the wait to receive a kidney for her blood type is about six years.  'The type of dialysis I do, I have to do four times a day,' Frith said. 'I do it myself - I do it at home - do it at work. I'm on a pretty short tether. I'm not allowed to swim. I have dietary issues -...
    If you thought Cowboy Poker was only for the small screen, you thought wrong.  A brave group geared up for an intense round of Cowboy Poker at the Wild Thing Championship Bull Riding in Gallup, New Mexico, on Saturday.  Wild Thing is the biggest open bull-riding competition in the southwest and has been going on for more than 25 years. It hosts a nightly 'cowboy poker' round in-between events and fireworks, organizer Larry Peterson told DailyMail.com on Tuesday.  Much like the scene from the 201st episode of the popular TV show Yellowstone, which debuted in 2018, where a group of cowboys sit at a table playing poker while a bull charges at them, a group of four brave cowboys in New Mexico did just that.  The goal of the game is to remain at the table the longest, but the bull made quick work of taking out the first contestant. A video posted to Twitter by Bleezal, shows the animal running towards the table, and then ducking its head low to get underneath one of the men. The man flies through the...
    A DIY fan who got fed up of constantly scrubbing her bathroom grout has stunned fans by revealing the cheap and easy way she dealt with it once and for all. Gee took to TikTok to share a video of the hack, which saw her using a tin of £12 paint to carefully paint the white grouting black. 4Gee got sick of her white grout never looking clean, despite her scrubbing, so took drastic actionCredit: Tiktok/@thesevenwonderzx 4She used a dark grey tile grout paint and a thin paintbrush to transform the tilesCredit: Tiktok/@thesevenwonderzx "When the grout just never looked clean enough no matter how hard I scrubbed," she wrote on the video. "I decided to paint the grout." The clip showed her using a thin paintbrush to apply the paint to the lines. But it was the cleaning up that really took the time. The next thing Gee showed was herself scrubbing the walls with Pink Stuff cream cleaner - trying to get rid of the grey muck the excess paint had left behind. "Scrub,...

    Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that the Biden administration essentially advised Americans in Afghanistan to make a dangerous journey to Kabul if they hope to receive the U.S. government’s assistance in evacuating the failed state. President Joe Biden repeatedly told Americans wishing to leave Afghanistan to get to Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul by a deadline of August 31 “Kabul is just one city in a very large and dangerous country the size of Texas,” Crenshaw said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. “If you told everybody in Texas they had to get to Houston to get out and they had to brave checkpoints the entire time, that’s not really a great message to your fellow Americans.” He added, “The short-term priority is getting other people out. You do that by basically saying, ‘We’re going to do it.” Crenshaw said Americans in Afghanistan should be given alternative points of evacuations aside from an airport in Kabul. “I also keep advocating for retaking certain air bases,” he remarked. “I think we should retake...

    Former President Barack Obama singled out Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger as one "brave" Republican who fought back against the so-called "Big Lie." Sitting down with CNN's Anderson Cooper in an interview that aired Monday night, Obama cited Raffensperger as someone who was criticized by former President Donald Trump and his allies for rejecting their claims of widespread voter fraud. As a result, he's become an example of a perceived political traitor that other Republicans wanted to avoid becoming, even in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. The Democrat criticized the GOP establishment and conservative media for not standing up to the "base" in their belief that the 2020 election was stolen. Obama initially said "nobody stood up" to the base, but then corrected himself to note exceptions. "There were some very brave people who did their jobs, like the secretary of state in Georgia, who was then viciously attacked for it, and all those congressmen said, 'You know what? I'll lose my job. I'll get voted out of office,'" he said. Obama on Jan. 6 and...

    The Duchess of Cambridge praised the strength and bravery of a five-year-old cancer patient in a telephone call released today. Mila Sneddon, of Falkirk, was photographed kissing her father through a window as she shielded while undergoing intensive chemotherapy for leukaemia during lockdown last year. The photograph, titled Shielding Mila, was taken by her mother Lynda and is one of the 100 final images included in the Duchess of Cambridge's book Hold Still: A Portrait of Our Nation in 2020, which is out tomorrow. Kate Middleton, 39, phoned Mila and Lynda last autumn and the conversation was released today on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's new YouTube channel, alongside heart-warming photographs of Mila and her family.

    Fond memories: The newlyweds go through their wedding photographs on honeymoon at Broadlands, Hampshire Was Prince Philip in love when he proposed to Elizabeth? At the time, he was a relatively penniless prince, with a rackety family and no home to call his own. Indeed, many were not at all convinced that he was marrying for the right reasons. His close friends from the post-war era, however, had a totally different recollection. 'He may have had his doubts about what he was getting himself into — the whole business of marrying the King of England's daughter,' his first cousin Patricia Mountbatten told me. 'I think that did concern him. 'But he had no doubts at all about Lilibet as a future wife. He adored her. He loved her deeply — you could tell. It was definitely a love match.' Mike Parker, Philip's closest male friend at the time, said to me: 'He loved her — absolutely. And he fancied her, too. No question about that.' They weren't the only ones to assure me that he'd married for love. But,...
    JUST like William and Kate, Philip and Princess Elizabeth loved their early life together as a ­normal ­married couple in the Armed Forces. Until his marriage, Philip had nowhere to call home. ????

He had lived in digs on Naval bases and survived on his Royal Navy officer’s pay plus a £5-a-week handout from his uncle Dickie Mountbatten. Money was still tight in November 1947 when Philip and Princess Elizabeth married. Just like today, it was a time of austerity. The war in Europe ended only two years before and Britain had just endured the worst winter of the century. By royal standards, the wedding at Westminster Abbey would not be lavish. 6Philip holds Elizabeth's hand as they leave Westminster Abbey after...
    Were many who spoke this Sunday during the broadcast of the first chapters of the documentary series Rocío, tell the truth to stay alive. From celebrities to politicians, through the Minister of Equality Irene Montero, who praised on Twitter the courage of Rocío Carrasco in denouncing her case of sexist violence. It is clear that this documentary, which consists of more than 60 hours of recording, already is giving a lot to talk about and more will continue doing it with the next episodes. For this reason, United We can policy has wanted to broaden its opinion on the matter by entering into Save me live this Monday. “Both Rocío Carrasco’s testimony and the audience justify that it is an obligation for the Ministry of Equality to be there“, has expressed the wife of Pablo Iglesias.” When a woman takes the step, she can be questioned or ridiculed. That woman is exposed to having to explain, to relive those experiences. “ For this reason, Irene Montero has opined that “you have to be there whenever a woman dares to take...
    HBO late-night host John Oliver ripped New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D., in the wake of multiple accusations of sexual harassment on Sunday, but some aren't eager to give him credit for joining a growing chorus against the former media darling. Two of Cuomo's former aides have come forward with harassment complaints against the governor, who was already facing calls to resign over accusations of underreporting nursing home coronavirus deaths by as much as 50 percent to avoid a federal investigation. "Even before the current scandals, there was something gross about Cuomo’s glee in his public adulation last year," Oliver said on Sunday. "From his constant appearance with his brother on CNN to him cosigning on the term ‘Cuomosexuals’ — the only sexual orientation, by the way, it is completely acceptable to discriminate against." CUOMO BATTLES GROWING BIPARTISAN FIRESTORM OVER SEXUAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS AMID LOOMING PROBE Oliver also called him a "colossal a--hole" who was "famously unpleasant," and added his undercount on nursing home deaths felt like something out of North Korea. Media pundits and celebrities alike gushed over Cuomo's coronavirus leadership in...
    Social media rallies thousands to sign up for bone marrow in effort to help a mother and son team beat cancer Biden Calls Saudi Prince Plot Against Khashoggi ‘Outrageous’ © Getty Images Warren Buffett It's not just what he realized. It's when and what he did about it. Load Error This is a story about Warren Buffett and mistakes, and it's exactly the kind of lesson I cover in my free ebook, Warren Buffett Predicts the Future, which you can download here. Berkshire Hathaway released its 2020 annual report Saturday, and Buffett acknowledged a big error: overpaying for a company called Precision Castparts, which meant Berkshire had to "write down" (or deduct) $11 billion from its bottom line last year. It was "almost entirely the quantification of a mistake I made in 2016," he wrote in his annual shareholder letter, when he "paid too much for the company." But while that admission led much of the coverage Saturday, I think there's something deeper to examine, and frankly more instructive for anyone who wants to learn from Buffett and...
    BOSTON (CBS) – A fast moving fire forced a family of three onto their balcony in the South End Wednesday morning. Seven-year-old Annabelle Cevillo-Soto was woken by her mother. “When it started, I was scared. I was shaking my legs,” she said. Annabelle’s mother Alicia Soto is deaf, doesn’t speak English and was sound asleep when the fire started. Alicia Soto and her daughters were rescued from the balcony of a South End apartment building (WBZ-TV) “She has the implants but she didn’t hear anything and she has this special alarm so that’s what she saw … it’s a visual alarm … she was sleeping no sounds at all. She saw the lights,” Soto said with the help of her sister, Katherine Santiago. With her six-month-old baby girl and Annabelle in hand, Soto ran for the door. “But it didn’t work because it was too smoky and too dangerous my mom couldn’t breathe that’s why we had to go out the window,” Annabelle said.

Council members were also give 72 hours to submit further proposals to City Manager Greg Nyhoff who will return will with a list of those proposals in 2 weeks. “It’s a very brave step for all of us, but it’s something that needed to be done,” Vallejo Mayor Bob Sampayan said after the vote.
