    A black bear crashed the home of a Connecticut family by breaking into its garage and then rummaging through their freezer and later attempted to return for a second time.  On Sunday, Bill Vannie was working on the front yard of his West Harftord home when he decided to grab a refreshment from inside, where he found the bear, according to his wife, Christine. In footage shared online, the black bear can be seen intruding into one of the home's rooms while eating marshmallows and peanut butter crackers, Christine told local news outlets.  'Go on, that way. Go. Get out of here. Go on, go. Take off bud,' Bill says in the video, attempting to shoo the bear out the home's open front door.  A black bear intruded a West Hartford home on Sunday while both homeowners, Christine and Bill Vannie, were working on the front yard, before it was shooed away  After Bill had shooed the black bear away, the animal attempted to come back inside the home through the back before it was told off once more The...
    A family-of-six who live in a 500-square-foot shed full time and use a bucket as a toilet have opened up about their rustic lifestyle, explaining how it's helped them 'spend more quality time together' and made them 'financially stable.' Jessica Taylor, 30, and her husband, Lath, 42, decided to sell their three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Arkansas - which they had lived in for 10 years - back in 2020, after both of them lost their jobs in the restaurant business amid the COVID-19 pandemic and began facing financial struggles. The couple, along with their four young kids, aged three to nine, then moved into a 500-square-foot shed. They purchased the tiny storage unit - meant for holding tools - for $6,000 at a roadside hardware stand, placed it onto Jessica's mom's six-acre property in Tennessee, and they soon got to work on transforming it into their dream home. The pair put in an addition $7,000, and spent two years renovating it, and now, it has two floors, electricity, running water, a heat and cooling system, privacy walls, and an outdoor porch....
    EAST OROSI, Calif. —  It had been predicted and feared. It finally happened on a brutally hot summer day: One of California’s communities with contaminated, sputtering wells and dropping water tables ran completely out of water. There is a state mandate to consolidate such water systems with larger nearby communities by 2024. But that wasn’t soon enough for East Orosi, an unincorporated Tulare County hamlet southeast of Fresno. The water went off Tuesday afternoon. A temporary fix allowed the water to run sporadically on Wednesday. By then, a family had lost their home to a fire they had no water to fight. Children had spent a day scrambling to keep pets and livestock from dying. And in this community that already depends on bottled water for drinking, everyone knew the taps could soon go dry again. The San Joaquin Valley’s water well problems stem from a complex mix of infrastructure failure, contamination and record-dry conditions. The current drought, in its third year, is causing water tables to drop. Heavy groundwater pumping by agriculture is leaving community wells more vulnerable and...
    Two women who discovered they were secret sisters through a DNA test have reunited for the first time in 55 years just months after discovering their related, describing it as the 'most exciting moment' of their lives.  Sisters Diane Ward, 58, and Mary McLaughlin, 55, were separated just a few months after Mary was born, but now, the long-lost siblings have finally reunited. Diane was put up for adoption when she was young, and with a lack of records, she never knew much about her biological family. She spent her childhood in Michigan, and unbeknownst to her, she grew up in a house that was just a few blocks away from her sister Mary and her biological mom - who has since passed away from breast cancer. The two lived within minutes of each other for three years, until Mary was also adopted. Throughout their childhoods, both women were told by their adoptive parents that they had no siblings but they longed to know more about where they came from. Just months after discovering they were related, the two finally...
    OUT of all the fast-food restaurant options foodies can pick from, there’s a reason Taco Bell is as popular as it is. One of the best meals to order from the Taco Bell menu is their Mexican pizza, and now you can easily copy their recipe at home. 2Copying the recipe for Taco Bell's Mexican pizza is easy to do at home with the right ingredientsCredit: Twitter Mexican pizza ingredients A food blogger name Kristen talked about her copycat version of Taco Bell's Mexican pizza on The Cookin Chicks. The ingredients you’ll need to have on deck to re-create Taco Bell's original recipe are crispy tortilla shells, seasoned beef, refried beans, and cheese. She noted that you can purchase Taco Bell branded hot sauce at local grocery stores to make the finished product taste even better in the end. According to Kristen, adding diced tomatoes and green onions works well, but you don’t have to add any toppings you’re not interested in.

    A couple from Seattle quit their jobs and sold their house to live full-time on cruise ships, traveling the world — and they say it made more sense financially than paying off their mortgage. Former accountant Angelyn Burk, 53, and her husband, Richard, love cruising, and through their marriage traveled by cruise at least once a year. While thinking about their retirement early last year, the pair decided they'd like to shift to cruising full-time — and realized they could make it happen sooner than they thought. Using loyalty memberships and taking advantage of sales, the couple have been traveling by cruise permanently since May of 2021, which they say they do for less than $100 total per day.

    AS much as we love scattering candles and reed diffusers around our homes, there's no denying that it can be an expensive habit to maintain - especially in lockdown. Well rather than forking out £10 (or more!) on a new reed diffuser every other month, one cleaning fan is using fabric softener as a purse-friendly alternative. 3The TikTok user filled her empty reed diffuser with fabric softener and waterCredit: @nic0075/TikTok At the end of last year, TikTok user Nic shared her life hack in a viral video which has racked up over 10,700 "likes". She captioned the clip: "Don't bin your reed diffusers!" Instead, the cleaning fan poured a few capfuls of Lenor's Sparkling Bloom and Yellow Poppy scent into the empty jar and topped it up with water. After this, she place the sticks back into the jar and claims the DIY mixtures makes her room smell heavenly. 3She added a few capfuls of her favourite fabric softenerCredit: @nic0075/TikTok 3She then topped it up with waterCredit: @nic0075/TikTok Unsurprisingly, other users are now desperate to give it a go...
    Potential jurors selected for the first trial surrounding the January 6 attacks on the US Capitol grew emotional in court Monday upon being questioned about the events of the day, raising concerns regarding their reliability to serve on the historic case. 'I felt like it was an attack on my home.. It was a very scary time,' one potential juror, with his voice shaking, told the DC court Monday, after being selected along with 33 others to potentially preside over the case of accused Capitol rioter Guy Reffitt, 48.  Noting how emotional the juror appeared in the courtroom, US District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich excused the candidate from service, saying he was 'starting from a place where he feels so clearly, visibly impacted from the events.' The prospective juror was one of nine dismissed by Friedrich Monday after displaying strong feelings about the Capitol attackers. Meanwhile, 24 others  - several of whom said they had followed news coverage of the riots and had strong political opinions regarding the case - made the cut, including a lobbyist who boasts connections to Congress. Reffitt's case is the first...
    In a venue built for champions, the Los Angeles Rams carried off the crown jewel: a Super Bowl trophy. It took a precise 79-yard drive capped by Cooper Kupp’s 1-yard touchdown reception with 1:25 remaining for a 23-20 victory Sunday over the Cincinnati Bengals to give the Rams their first NFL title since the 1999 season — and their first representing Los Angeles since 1951. “Those guys just did a great job,” coach Sean McVay said. “They took over that game.” They did it in their home, the $5 billion SoFi Stadium, making the Rams the second consecutive host to win the championship after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers became the first a year ago. “As far as building this stadium,” said Rams owner Stan Kroenke, the man who moved them back from St. Louis in 2016, “I think it turned out all right.” The winning series, during which Super Bowl MVP Kupp’s 4-yard touchdown reception from Matthew Stafford was negated by offsetting penalties, ended soon after with the NFL Offensive Player of the Year easily...
    A 50-year-old cold case involving the murder of North Carolina family of three has now been solved with four members of a Georgia-based gang pinned as the culprits. The brutal slayings of the Durham family including Buick dealership owner Bryce, 51, his wife Virginia, 44, and their son Bobby, 18, went unsolved for decades after they were found dead in a bathtub in their home in Boone, North Carolina on February 3, 1972 during a snowstorm. An autopsy report revealed that Virginia had died from strangulation and the other two had been drowned, according to the Charlotte Observer. Following a lengthy investigation, officials from Watauga County have since pinned four members from the Dixie Mafia group as the perpetrators.  The four men included Billy Davis, Billy Birt, Bobby Gaddis and Charles Reed who were allegedly hired to commit the crime at the Blue Ridge Mountains Home. It still remains unclear who ordered the hit for the gruesome murder. Dixie Mafia members Bobby Gaddis (left) and Charles Reed (right) were two of the men pinned for the murder of a North...

    An Indiana pastor has allegedly been dismissed from his church after he dressed up in drag for the HBO docuseries We're Here - because it caused too much 'turmoil' in their community.     Pastor Craig Duke, from Evansville, Indiana, recently appeared in an episode of the show, which follows 'top drag entertainers Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O'Hara, and Shangela Laquifa Wadley as they travel to small cities and towns across the country, transforming locals into fierce drag queens.' Pastor Craig dressed up in drag to show his support for the LGBTQ+ community - including his daughter, who is pansexual - and said he hoped it would be a 'bridge' for the community and the church.  But according to a GoFundMe page set up on his behalf, United Methodist Church has since 'relieved him of pastoral duties,' and he and his wife will soon have to move out of their home that is owned by the church.

    A former Marine who murdered a family of four and their dog in a random attack in Florida after seeing 'visions from God' has told police he is 'a sick guy' and should be 'sent to jail'. Bryan Riley, 33, opened fire at around 4am on Sunday at a home in Lakeland. He murdered Justice Gleason, 40; his 33-year-old partner Theresa Lanham; their three-month-old son Jody; and the baby's grandmother, 62, at a home behind the main property. The family dog, Diogi, was also killed, and an 11-year-old girl at the home was shot seven times but expected to survive.

He is due in court on Monday afternoon

Jessica Millsaps, her husband Jordan and their two sons decided to check in on the one-and-a-half year-old dog, named Jack, on Saturday while on a short camping trip 20 minutes away from their home in Axtell, Texas.

    A couple who left California over the teaching of critical race theory in schools, are now fighting to keep the topic off the curriculum in Utah. Gloria and Oscar Vindas said they began homeschooling their son in California due to the teaching of the subject in schools. The curriculum was 'one of the main reasons' they chose to relocate to Utah, where they were shocked to find that it was also taught in schools. Critical race theory examines the influence of race and racism on America's laws, politics and culture, taking into consideration issues such as white supremacy and institutionalized racism. Its place in schools has become a hot button issue, with supporters of its inclusion in curricula arguing it will eventually help lead to a fairer society, and detractors saying it is inherently divisive. Speaking to Fox News, Gloria Vindas claimed that critical race theory was rooted in Marxism and said she was concerned about where teaching the subject might lead. 'I've taught my son against that [Marxism], so I'd have to say my biggest fear is where this...

    The family at the center of the Red House protests in Portland own a second home just two miles away.  The loss of the Kinney family's Red House on Mississippi to foreclosure after a long legal fight has led to five days of protests, with hundreds of demonstrators at the property.

    A couple who won a remote lodge in Alaska after taking part in BBC show Win the Wilderness have seen their dream turn into a nightmare after the home's former owner refused to give it up.  Emily Padfield, 37, and her partner Mark Warner, 53, from Warwickshire, competed against five other couples to win the three-storey property on the reality show, which aired in January.  To win the home, named Ose Mountain after previous owner Duane Ose, contestants had to do things including jumping into icy water and find and cook their own food whilst surviving in the wilderness. The solar-powered 'off-grid' home, which was built from 2,000 spruce trees and is still unfinished, is 100 miles from the nearest road, has no running water and is an area populated by both wolves and bears.   But since signing the deeds to the property in June last year, the couple were told by Duane, 78, that he wanted it back.  Emily Padfield, 37, and her partner Mark Warner, 53, from Warwickshire, won a remote lodge in the Alaskan wilderness after...

    Lindsay and Eric Wood. Frank Olito/ Insider Lindsay and Eric Wood had paid $65,000 for a $90,000 tiny house when the construction company went out of business, leaving their home half-finished. But that wasn't the only problem — they said what had been built had not been done so correctly. The house had the wrong tires and axles, and had a wrongly sized hatch. Other tiny home owners shared similar experiences, and their accounts point to a larger issue within the tiny house movement: Construction is unregulated, leaving owners vulnerable to shoddy work and companies going out of business. Zack Giffin, host of "Tiny House Nation," said the absence of a uniform set of guidelines for building tiny houses means some companies are cutting corners and delivering sub-standard work. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. If you Google the term "tiny house," you'll probably find eye-candy photos of small spaces expertly decorated.

    Ghislaine Maxwell managed to go undetected by her own neighbors throughout her stay at her New Hampshire hideout, as residents say they can't recall ever seeing her in the neighborhood that has been described as the perfect hiding place for a 'fugitive'.  Maxwell, 58, had recently moved into a $1million estate in the tiny town of Bradford, before she was arrested and charged on a slew of sex trafficking offenses related to Jeffrey Epstein last Thursday, federal prosecutors said. Authorities revealed they had been 'discreetly keeping tabs' on her for some time, but have not disclosed how they were able to track her down in the remote town of 1,700 people after she disappeared from the public eye last year. It's a question that has been raised among members of the public, as well as town residents, many of whom did not know anyone was staying in the home called 'Tuckedaway', until learning about it on the news.   Maxwell was picked up by the FBI and NYPD detectives last Thursday morning at the property in Bradford, New Hampshire,...

Andrew Cuomo said the state has seen an “alarming spike” in domestic violence reports during the COVID-19 crisis. “The COVID-19 DV task force chaired by @melissadderosa has issued recommendations that NY will adopt. We will make services more survivor centered and individualized,” the Democratic lawmaker tweeted TWTR, +0.99% on Saturday. Mentions of the new coronavirus have cropped up in calls, texts and online chats to the National Domestic Violence Hotline in recent months, as public-health experts urge social distancing and staying home to stem the disease’s spread. One woman told an advocate that COVID-19 had impacted her plans to leave her relationship upon her graduation in May, according to excerpts from the hotline’s log shared with MarketWatch.

Stay calm, even if you’re shaking inside. Never put your hands in your pockets. Make sure people can always see your hands. Try not to hunch your shoulders. Listen to their directions. Darnell Hill, a pastor and a mental health caseworker, offers Black teenagers these emotional and physical coping strategies every time a Black person is fatally shot by a police officer. That’s when parents’ worries about their sons and daughters intensify. “They’re hurting,” Hill said. “They’re looking for answers.” Hill, who is African American, learned “the rules” the hard way. When he was 12, he and a group of his friends jumped a fence to go for a swim in a lake. That’s when two officers approached them. One of the cops, a white man, threatened to shoot Hill and everyone else if he ever caught them there again. “I was so afraid,” Hill, now 37, recalled. “He made all of us sit down...
