    KING Charles is grief-stricken for the loss of his mother, yes. But his expression of utter desolation throughout the funeral suggests an extra weight on his shoulders, that of expectation and duty. 7King Charles is grief-stricken for the loss of his motherCredit: AFP 7But Pengate must be a one-off display of petulant irritability At the age of 73, when the majority of us are hanging up the tools of our trades and spending more time with our begonias, King Charles is only just starting one of the biggest jobs in the world. Perhaps worse, he has an incredibly tough act to follow. Her Majesty the Queen was a comforting constant through times of crisis who never seemed to view life through the prism of herself. In a modern world blighted by oversharing, she shared little, if any, of her opinions — which, considering she was educated, quick-witted and bright, must have felt deeply frustrating at times.

    The nation's broadcasters were called upon once more to transmit the melancholy glory of another day in the death of our Queen. And amid the massing of the military, resplendent in their scarlet and gold, complete with ceremonial trimmings of frogging and ruff, one question burned. How many more last journeys could Elizabeth II make? 'The Queen will leave for the final time shortly,' said Anna Botting for Sky News. 'The Queen will leave Buckingham Palace for the very last time,' said Chris Ship for ITV. And even once the journey began, no one was sounding the last post for the last time. 'Now passing under the great arch for the last time, Queen Elizabeth II,' solemnly intoned the BBC's Fergal Keane, sounding for a moment as if he were reporting on the voyage of a cruise ship. The cortege left Buckingham Palace and headed east, straight towards Alastair Bruce for Sky. 'The Mall is waiting to embrace the late Queen as she comes down through this canopy of trees for the last time,' he said 'The Queen will leave...
    THE Queen’s last great journey began at Balmoral yesterday as she left her beloved estate for the final time. Among those paying their respects as her hearse slowly passed was Dr Andre Andrasovska, who said: “What we are seeing today is the departure of the soul of the nation. It is a very significant event.” 4The Queen’s last great journey began at Balmoral as she left her beloved estate for the final timeCredit: AFP 4A sombre Princess Royal follows Her Majesty's hearse in a limoCredit: PA At her beloved Balmoral Castle, six of the late monarch’s faithful ghillies and gamekeepers had hoisted her oak casket on to broad shoulders. It was then carefully placed into a black-liveried Mercedes hearse. A lone bagpiper hauntingly played as the ghillies — who had accompanied the Queen on Balmoral’s grouse moors and salmon beats — bid her farewell.

    The new King was openly emotional in 'a way that the Crown has never been seen before,' during his first address to the nation tonight, according to a body language expert. Judi James told MailOnline how Charles, 73, did away with the traditional 'stiff upper lip' during the speech, in order to allow himself to share his grief with the nation during the address, which was screened at a service of prayer and reflection at St Paul's Cathedral. According to Judi, the monarch 'radiated pride and confidence' during the emotional speech, which was recorded from the Buckingham Palace Blue Drawing Room.  She added that Charles spoke with both the vulnerability of a loving son when he addressed his late mother during the speech, but also the poise of a new King when speaking to the nation. 'The new King’s body language was openly emotional in a way that the crown never has never been seen before,' Judi said, adding it was was departure from Charles' previous body language.  Judi James told MailOnline how Charles, 73, gave up the 'stiff upper lip'...

    President Joe Biden is scheduled to deliver a prime-time address framing November's midterm elections as a continuation of his 2020 cycle's "battle for the soul of the nation." Biden is anticipated to portray MAGA forces, perpetuated by former President Donald Trump and his allies, as being "determined to take this country backwards," according to an excerpt from his prepared remarks. The speech is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Biden is traveling to Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to deliver it.

    Riding high on a string of massive successes President Joe Biden will address the nation Thursday evening from Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to discuss “the continued battle for the Soul of the Nation,” the White House announced late Monday afternoon. Last week Gallup reported President Biden’s approval rating had skyrocketed, jumping six points to 44%. That marker places him about former Presidents Donald Trump (41%), Barack Obama (43%), Bill Clinton (39%), Jimmy Carter (43%), and Ronald Reagan (41%) at this point in their presidencies. “The president will lay out how America’s standing in the world and its democracy are at stake,” NBC News reports, citing a White House official. “Biden will highlight what he sees as progress over the past two years to protect our democracy, but note that rights and freedoms remain at risk.” “He will make clear who is fighting for those rights, fighting for those freedoms, and fighting for our democracy,” the official said, NBC adds. The Biden White House is quickly turning its earned political currency into opportunities to share the President’s vision,...
    THE nation has lost its spark for cooking with more than one in four unadventurous Brits reluctant to prepare anything new in the kitchen. A study of 2,000 adults found 29 per cent cook the same dishes on rotation, while a quarter admit they’re too lazy to search for new recipes. 1According to a new study Brits are losing their spark for cookingCredit: Getty And 60 per cent only cook out of necessity, with seven in 10 put off trying new recipes in fear of it going wrong. The classic Sunday roast is the most common dish being made at home, alongside spaghetti bolognese, Shepherd’s pie and stir fry. The study was commissioned by vegetable brand Tenderstem to launch its Suppertime Sonnets in partnership with farmer and former JLS singer JB Gill. He is seen performing in a field, reciting classic recipes in the style of Shakespearean sonnets, in a bid to get Brits more creative when cooking.

Court decisions don’t justify secession talk Re. “California needs to prepare to secede from nation,” Page A6, July 1: Joe Mathews apparently does not understand our nation’s history, Just because there are court rulings that go counter to his or the state’s feelings does not warrant secession. Our founding fathers via the Federalist Papers (Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay) argued strenuously and compromised greatly (e.g., slavery for Southern states) to create a unique democratic nation. They admitted that it was not perfect. But it was important to have one united nation to go forth, regardless of its blemishes, in the hopes that as we progressed we would create a better whole — as opposed to a fragmented mishmash. We survived a brutal, divisive Civil War over slavery. We can certainly survive some controversial Supreme Court decisions without the juvenile attitude of “taking my ball and bat and going home.” The high court is saying we are a republic and have checks and balances...
    For the first time ever, Colombia has chosen new leadership that is not conservative. Voters in the third-most populous nation in Latin America narrowly elected the former mayor of Bogotá, Gustavo Petro, in a runoff election against his conservative opponent Rodolfo Hernández, with 50.47 percent of the votes. This article was produced by Economy for All, a project of the Independent Media Institute. Petro, who ran on a platform to tackle inequality, is a former rebel soldier who, at the age of 17 joined a now-defunct guerilla group called M-19 and was briefly imprisoned and tortured. His election is viewed as part of the ongoing “pink tide” in Latin America where a wave of left-leaning, but not-hardcore-communist leaders have succeeded in taking power through democratic elections. Perhaps even more impressive than Petro is his running mate, Francia Márquez, the nation’s first Afro-Colombian vice president and a celebrated environmental activist. No other Afro-Colombian has risen so far up the ranks of the government as Márquez—in spite of the fact that nearly 10 percent of the nation’s population is of African descent—and...
    President Joe Biden strode down a red carpet lined with candles, to a different podium than the one he stood behind just nine days ago to again address the mass shootings that have left scores dead in the last month alone. “For God's sake, how much more carnage are we willing to accept?” he asked. “How many more innocent American lives must be taken before we say enough? Enough.” While his address last Tuesday in the immediate aftermath of the mass murder of 19 children and two of their teachers in Uvalde, Texas was focused on mourning the dead, on Thursday Biden outlined a specific set of policies he said would help curb the violence. “Here's what the families in Buffalo and Uvalde in Texas told us we must do,” he said. “We need to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines. And if we can't ban assault weapons, then we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21.” Biden also listed strengthening safe storage laws, background checks and implementing red flag laws among other “rational common...
    Daylight saving time, that fall-back/spring-forward  annual ritual, is back in the spotlight now that the U.S. Senate has adopted the brightly named Sunshine Protection Act. The measure would eliminate those twice-yearly timepiece changes by making daylight saving time year-around and permanent. The bill now goes to an uncertain future in the House. This new congressional interest in sunshine recalls a furious battle over DST that roiled Minnesota politics for months at time in the mid-1960s — a fight that made Minnesota the laughingstock of the nation thanks to its two major cities, Minneapolis and  St. Paul, who could not agree on a common start date for changing the clocks. Long a bone of contention between urban and rural Minnesota, DST pitted neighboring communities against each other in 1965 when 20 states, including Wisconsin, opted to move their clocks ahead on April 25. But Minnesota was not one of the 20. At the time, state law mandated that DST could not start before May 23 — or extend beyond Labor Day. Along the state’s eastern border, cities from Duluth to Winona...
    President Joe Biden’s first State of the Union address featured, in its opening minutes, something that’s been increasingly rare in recent years: sustained bipartisan applause. Republicans especially usually make a big show of booing and heckling Democratic presidents, but Biden’s address opened with remarks on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that united the parties in applause. Vladimir Putin “badly miscalculated,” Biden said. “He thought he could roll into Ukraine and the world would roll over. Instead he met a wall of strength he never imagined. He met the Ukrainian people.” Biden went on to detail how “We spent months building a coalition of other freedom-loving nations from Europe and the Americas to Asia and Africa to confront Putin. I spent countless hours unifying our European allies. We shared with the world in advance what we knew Putin was planning and precisely how he would try to falsely justify his aggression.” And he announced that the U.S. was closing its air space to Russia.  The rest of the State of the Union, of course, drew little Republican support and some of the now-traditional...
    The centerpiece of the establishment media on Monday diagnosed President Biden’s state of the union as rife with “disunity and division.” One day before Biden is set to deliver the State of the Union Address, the Associated Press (AP) preempted his speech with an article describing the actual state of the country as one of “disunity, funk and peril.” The article slammed Biden for his leadership during a time when the nation’s “strength is being sharply tested from within — and now from afar.” The outlet slammed Biden’s state of the union as weak, and not strong enough for Biden to declare it so, hinting he should not in Tuesday night’s speech. “It’s a state of exhaustion from the pandemic,” the outlet stated. “It’s about feeling gouged at the grocery store and gas pump. It’s so low that some Americans, including prominent ones, are exalting Russian President Vladimir Putin in his attack on a democracy,” the article said, and drew comparisons with Jimmy Carter’s time in office, when Carter said the nation was in the midst of a ‘crisis of confidence.’ The...

    (CNN)As the chamber returned after Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer started debate on House-passed voting rights legislation and warned that "the eyes of the nation will be watching what happens this week in the United States Senate." Democrats are pushing ahead on one of the party's signature issues despite the fact that they lack the votes to pass the legislation in Congress and face an uphill battle. "Senate Democrats are under no illusion that we face difficult odds, especially when virtually every Senate Republican is staunchly against legislation protecting the right to vote," Schumer said. "But I want to be clear: when this chamber confronts a question this important, one so vital to our country, so vital to our ideals, so vital to the future of our democracy, you don't slide it off the table and say, never mind."The New York Democrat on Tuesday moved to force a vote to break a filibuster on the voting legislation, which could take place as soon as Wednesday if there is agreement. If there is no agreement, then...
    There is mounting pressure of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to replace a rule that prevents some gay and bisexual men from donating blood. A group of 22 U.S. Senators, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar signed a letter asking the agencies to lift the rule they describe as 'discriminatory and wrong'. The call comes as the American Red Cross warns the nation is facing a 'blood crisis' due to falling levels of donations caused by the pandemic. The organization reports that some hospitals and donation centers only have a day's worth of blood on hand. Rules against men who have sex with other men (MSM) donating blood date back to the 1980's in the U.S. While restrictions have been eased in recent years, an MSM who has had sex with a man in the past three months - or a woman who has had sex with an MSM during that period - are currently barred from donating blood.   A group of 22 Senators are calling for the FDA...
    The highly-anticipated Super Bowl LVI takes the field in just a few weeks, scheduled to be played on February 13, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. And while the Big Game is inarguably the biggest television event of the year – with last year's record-low viewership still drawing in an astounding 92 million watchers - it's no wonder ad space can cost as much as $6 million for just 30 seconds of time.If you happen to identify with a large percentage of the population that's perhaps more interested in the myriad of big-budget, high-profile commercials that air between gameplay than the game itself, look no further than 38 years back in time.WHO CAN FORGET 2021?

    (CNN)Every American is being drawn into a reckoning over how much risk is acceptable to get the nation back on its feet as the new Omicron variant of Covid-19 rages out of control.The country is being buried under an avalanche of new infections, but after two exhausting, demoralizing years, the impetus among millions of people to try to find a way to live more normally alongside the disease has never been stronger. Striking the right balance is complicated since the pandemic has reached its most paradoxical phase yet.Signs of a worsening winter crisis are cropping up everywhere even as new hope stirs that a virus that wrecked the last two years is not, perhaps, as frightening in its latest guise. It's also jarring that infection curves are shooting straight up in vertical lines as hospitals overflow but many Americans who get Covid-19 for the first time shrug it off like it's a mild cold.

    On Saturday night, just after Al Green had finished serenading tens of thousands of fans at the Once Upon a Time in LA festival with classic love songs including “Let’s Stay Together” and “Love and Happiness,” the rapper Drakeo the Ruler was brazenly ambushed backstage and stabbed in the neck. The incident occurred as Snoop Dogg was gearing up to perform as part of the single-day event, a joint venture he co-promoted with live entertainment giant Live Nation and L.A.-based independent promoter Bobby Dee Presents. The latter is owned by Robert “Bobby Dee” Drieslein, a longtime business partner of Snoop Dogg. The festival, held on the grounds of Banc of California Stadium and Exposition Park and featuring performances by the Game, Cypress Hill, Ice Cube and dozens of other R&B, funk and hip-hop artists from the 1970s onward, was shut down soon after. Drakeo, whose real name is Darrell Caldwell, 28, later died from his injuries. “Detectives are still trying to figure things out,” said Officer Luis Garcia, an LAPD spokesman, on Sunday. California Highway Patrol is the...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) published an op-ed Wednesday in The Boston Globe in which she argued in favor of adding four additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court following a ruling last week with regard to a Texas abortion law. In arguing for court expansion, Warren lashed out at the country’s top jurists over an 8-1 decision not to outright block a law which bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected in Texas. The court instead ruled to allow abortion providers to challenge the law case-by-case through lower courts. Warren wrote, “This month, a majority of justices on the United States Supreme Court signaled their willingness to gut one of the court’s most important decisions over the past century, threatening to eliminate Roe v. Wade and a person’s right to choose. The Massachusetts Democrat also wrote, “This is not the first time this extremist court has threatened, or outright dismantled, fundamental rights in this country. For years, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority — recently supercharged to 6-3 — has issued decision after decision that veers away from both...
    The Met Council, the Twin Cities regional planning and transit agency, isn’t alone in how the COVID-19 pandemic affected its operations and people. The shutdowns of many businesses — and the advent of work from home — slashed ridership and revenue for the agency. Already facing a structural deficit, it was pushed further into the red with the loss of farebox revenue — even as it was obligated to continue to operate some services for those who didn’t have the ability to work from home. It also took on those challenges with a new boss. Charlie Zelle, the former state Minnesota Department of Transportation commissioner, was appointed just before the pandemic hit, which he had to address along with other inherited challenges: transit safety, budgets and the increasingly fraught Southwest LRT construction. MinnPost spoke with Zelle about his first two years in the high-profile position, and how the Met Council plans to move forward. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.  MinnPost: It probably seemed like a good idea to have accepted this job when the governor offered...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Americans are less than two weeks away from Thanksgiving, and a year removed from the worst parts of the Coronavirus pandemic that plagued most of 2020.

The tell-all book co-authored by  Bob Woodward and Robert Costa included controversial reports that led some to suggest that General Milley should be committed treason for backchannel conversations with his Chinese Military counterpart General Li and discussions about former President Donald Trump’s mental health in the context of nuclear weapons. After delivering prepared remarks on the military operations surrounding the Afghanistan withdrawal, Gen. Milley added “Thank you, chairman, and if I could, I know that there are some issues in the media that are of deep concern to many members on the committee, and with your permission I would like to address those for a minute or two.” “I’ve served this nation for 42 years,” he continued. “I spent years in combat, and I buried a lot of my troops who died while defending this country. My loyalty to this nation, its people, and the constitution hasn’t changed and will never change as long as...
    (CNN)Many school boards are often better known for disagreements than mutuality. But in Los Angeles, our school board and superintendent are unified in acting on their collective responsibility to protect students against rising child cases of Covid-19. In recent weeks, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has rolled out several policies to ensure a safe return to the classroom, including mandatory mask wearing, weekly testing for students and staff and a requirement that district employees are fully vaccinated by October 15.And now, those policies also include a vaccine requirement for all eligible LAUSD students. After a unanimous Board of Education vote, children ages 12 and older are required to be fully vaccinated by the end of the year, while students with qualifying exemptions will have the option for an independent learning program.As the medical director for the Los Angeles Unified School District, my No. 1 priority is to put the health, safety and well-being of children first. And as a pediatrician, I understand that vaccines are one of the greatest advancements of modern medicine. The reason why those of...
    Twenty years ago on 9/11, I emerged from the DC Metro on my way to work as an intern in Rep. Ellen Tauscher’s office, and suddenly realized the world had changed. I was told that the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon had been hit by airplanes, and the U.S. Capitol building was being evacuated. I was told to leave, so I headed back to my University of Maryland fraternity house. Later that day, my fraternity brothers and I watched on TV as the horror of the day unfolded. But we also saw something I’ll never forget: Democratic and Republican members of Congress, standing on the Capitol’s steps, hand in hand, singing “God Bless America” — a soul-soothing display of strength and perseverance as an antidote to terror. It wasn’t bipartisan so much as it was uber-partisan — far above the usual political fray, a moment of unity that transcended all policy differences and affiliations. That was half my life ago. In some ways it feels like yesterday; in others it feels a million years in...

    Good afternoon. I want to speak today to the unfolding situation in Afghanistan: the developments that have taken place in the last week and the steps we're taking to address the rapidly evolving events. My national security team and I have been closely monitoring the situation on the ground in Afghanistan and moving quickly to execute the plans we had put in place to respond to every constituency, including -- and contingency -- including the rapid collapse we're seeing now. I'll speak more in a moment about the specific steps we're taking, but I want to remind everyone how we got here and what America's interests are in Afghanistan. We went to Afghanistan almost 20 years ago with clear goals: get those who attacked us on September 11th, 2001, and make sure al Qaeda could not use Afghanistan as a base from which to attack us again. We did that. We severely degraded al Qaeda in Afghanistan. We never gave up the hunt for Osama bin Laden, and we got him. That was a decade ago. Biden said: We went...
    VIDEO2:0102:01Ally Invest's Lindsey Bell delivers her top play in a risky market environmentTrading Nation Stocks may be at all-time highs, but Ally Invest's Lindsey Bell is anticipating market turbulence. According to the firm's chief investment strategist, surging Covid-19 cases and uncertainty surrounding when the Federal Reserve will meaningfully step away from its easy money policy could propel stocks into a near-term pullback. To help mitigate potential losses, Bell is encouraging investors to consider adding more health care exposure. "It really is underrated which is a shame because we're in this great year of innovation with different vaccines and treatments to address the pandemic," she told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Wednesday. "We remain optimistic that health care can do well especially in periods of angst which may occur over the next couple of months." For now, it appears Wall Street is breathing a sigh of relief. The Dow and S&P 500 closed at record highs following the highly-anticipated Consumer Price Index data. It showed inflation wasn't as hot as many investors fear. Right now, Bell believes inflation is transitory, but...
    The following is a transcript of an interview with Dr. Scott Gottlieb that aired on Sunday, August 8, 2021, on "Face the Nation." JOHN DICKERSON: We go now to former FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, who is on the board of Pfizer and is the author of an upcoming book, Uncontrolled Spread: Why COVID-19 Crushed Us and How We Can Defeat the Next Pandemic. Good morning, Dr. Gottlieb. I want to start with a Harris poll. It showed that for the first time in two months, Americans think that the pandemic is getting worse rather than getting better. What do you think? DOCTOR SCOTT GOTTLIEB: Well, look it's certainly getting worse. I think you're going to start to see improvements, particularly in the South. There is evidence that the rate of growth in the cases in the South is starting to decline. I think that this week you may see some of the states that have been the outbreak states start to tip over in terms of showing less cases on a daily basis. The rate of expansion, the epidemic...

    Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren argued on Tuesday that it is "time to defund the Democrats" after ‘Squad’ member Rep. Cori Bush's, D-Mo., campaign filings revealed she spent $70,000 on security while pushing to defund the police. "Lawlessness at the border, excused by Democrats. Lawlessness in the streets, ignored by Democrats. Groups calling to defund border and law enforcement, endorsed by Democrats. See a pattern here? Maybe it’s time we defund Democrats!" Lahren said on "Final Thoughts."  CONCHA RIPS PRO-DEFUND POLICE DEM CORI BUSH FOR SPENDING $70K ON SECURITY: ‘RULES FOR THEE, NOT FOR ME’ "Some cities are worse than others and those are mainly cities run by Democrats. You’re shocked, I know," Lahren said.  Lahren noted that "the culture of lawlessness is sweeping great American cities with violent crime rates skyrocketing nationwide."  She argued that it is the result of decriminalizing illegal acts, downgrading felonies, demoralizing and demonizing officers, and defunding police departments. Highlighting that police budget cuts occurred in Democrat-run cities such as Chicago, Baltimore, and San Francisco, Lahren explained how Baltimore slashed law enforcement services when it...
    The following is a transcript of an interview with Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker, authors of "I Alone Can Fix It," that aired on Sunday, July 25, 2021, on "Face the Nation." JOHN DICKERSON: We turn now to a new book that chronicles Donald Trump's tumultuous final year in office, Carol Leonnig and Phil Rucker are the authors of 'I Alone Can Fix It.' Good morning to both of you. Carol, let's start with you. Your first book ended after the first impeachment. The second book has another impeachment. Is there a through line for President Trump's administration between those two impeachments? CAROL LEONNIG: Absolutely there is, JOHN. What's striking about that time frame is the president learns as a result of the first impeachment that he's untouchable. There's no consequence for his behavior. There's no consequence for stretching the law, bending it, breaking it, you know, in a criminal situation if he weren't president there are a lot of people who would argue he violated the law the first time around and as well the second time around. So...
    Edith Wilson is best known for her role running the White House after her husband, President Woodrow Wilson, fell ill. Rachel Campos-Duffy looks into the life and legacy of this historic first lady in Fox Nation’s "Women of the White House."  Edith Wilson biographer Rebecca Roberts told Campos-Duffy that looking back on the life of Woodrow Wilson, he was already ill in 1918 and 1919. When he arrived in the United States after spending time in Paris in 1919 negotiating the League of Nations, the president looked "exhausted, and sick, and emaciated, and grey in the face."  MARY TODD LINCOLN - A CONTROVERSIAL FIRST LADY Roberts went on to note that while Wilson was confined to his bed, Edith acted as the "gatekeeper."  "It was to Edith that everything went," Roberts said. "And people started to learn that it had to go to Edith, so cabinet secretaries started addressing letters to her. And she decided what he saw, what could wait, what was ignored completely."  Roberts noted that Edith did not overstep in creating policies, but did owe the American...
    Fox Nation host Tucker Carlson investigates the decline of gun rights over the last three decades and the right to self-defense in the latest installment of "Tucker Carlson Originals." In "Surviving Disorder," Carlson retraces the frightening and tense moments of the 1992 Los Angeles riots with multiple victims and witnesses. The City of Angels experienced five days of unrest after four police officers were acquitted in the arrest and beating of Rodney King, an African-American man. ‘TUCKER CARLSON ORIGINALS’ INVESTIGATES THE MOST AGGRESSIVE GUN CONFISCATION SCHEME IN MODERN AMERICAN HISTORY David Joo, who Carlson interviewed for the special, had been in Koreatown when the riots broke out on April 29 of 1992. He was working as a manager at a local grocery store at the time - and when the possibility of looting and violence looked more like a reality, Joo said he knew he had to defend himself and his store. "We are pretty much on our own. So what should we do?" Joo said. "So, you know, no option. We... we have to defend our store.""So I packed...
    Louis Zamperini was many things over the course of his almost-century-long life: at one time, the fastest man in the world. At another, a war hero. At another, a drunk-turned-Christian.Seven years ago today, the Torrance Tornado, known for his record-breaking 4-minute-21-second mile, passed away at the age of 97. But with his longevity came a series of unexpected, harrowing events that would make his life one of the most memorable in American history. NIGHTMARES, ALCOHOL AND A LOOMING DIVORCE: THE STORY OF LOUIS ZAMPERINI'S RETURN TO GOD During his service in World War II, Zamperini was one of only a few survivors of a military plane crash. The crash left him stranded on a raft in the middle of the Pacific Ocean alongside two other American soldiers for what amounted to a terrifying 47-day-stint.  Zamperini and his fellow comrades shared the small raft - which drifted a total of 2,000 miles over the course of their traumatic journey. They survived on a little rainwater, a few fish, and an occasional bird - and were even circled by a Japenese plan for...
    The story of Eleanor Roosevelt comes to life in the new Fox Nation show ‘Women of the White House,’ which highlights the most important moments for the woman dubbed the First Lady of the World.  Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy joined Park Rangers Franceska Macsali-Urbin and Michael Autenrieth at the Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site in Hyde Park, New York, approximately two miles from the historic Roosevelt home.  Franklin Delano Roosevelt built a cottage on the site for his wife when she became more active in politics, necessitating her own space. He called the site a "shack in the woods," and the First Lady would go on to host dignitaries from around the world at the house.  Macsali-Urbin noted that Eleanor grew up in a prominent family, and actually was a niece of Theodore Roosevelt. But her marriage to FDR was a love match, spurred when the two ran into each other on a train from New York City to Hyde Park.  "It was a marriage of love," Macsali-Urbin said. "FDR recognized in Eleanor Roosevelt a very intelligent woman, and...
