    Nadine Akkerman, based in the The Netherlands, who recently published her book Elizabeth Stuart: Queen of Hearts, has brought to light the portrait, which depicts Elizabeth wearing the Tudor crown He was unpopular with the British public, eventually being convicted of treason and executed - yet not everyone in King Charles I's family was so heavily frowned upon, with his sister Elizabeth Stuart proving to be endlessly beloved by her supporters. One fan even created a treasonous portrait that displayed the so-called Queen of Hearts as the monarch of England, Scotland, and Ireland, according to author Nadine Akkerman, based in the The Netherlands, who said the painting could've resulted in the owner’s execution. Nadine, who recently published her book Elizabeth Stuart: Queen of Hearts, has brought to light the portrait, which depicts Elizabeth - daughter of King James VI and I - wearing an ermine robe and the Tudor crown. This simple drawing - now part of a private collection in Scotland and first painted by M. Mierevelt before it was reportedly modified during the 17th century when Elizabeth's brother reigned - could've...
    NORCO (KABC) -- There's a new memorial in Southern California, dedicated to remembering the ultimate sacrifice made by several local service members. In the waning days of America's longest war they gave everything for their country: service members, now remembered as the Fallen 13.Four of the Fallen 13 came from Southern California; locals who will now be remembered with a permanent memorial in Norco."It means a lot. It shows that we're supported and that our children are not forgotten. Their sacrifices are not forgotten," said Cheryl Rex. "And that people are very thankful to our boys for what they represent for our country."The memorial space is on private property, donated by a Norco shopping center. For city leaders it's another example of the patriotic spirit that proudly runs through this town."The volunteerism in Norco is just incredible," said Greg Newton, Mayor of Norco.It's those volunteers who made this memorial happen to remember those who died trying to save others. The Fallen 13, who will always be remembered here, the last casualties of America's longest war.
    “Defend the bridge to the last extremity!” Washington shouted to his officers and men 245 years ago as he stared at the massive British army coiling in front of the stone arched bridge that stood between his men and their destruction. “To the last man, Excellency,” one of Washington’s officers responded to his commander in chief, as a phalanx of Cornwallis’s army readied to charge the bridge.  The stone structure was one of the few places to traverse the swollen waters of the Assunpink.  Behind the bridge lay the nearly frozen Delaware River; Washington’s line of retreat was nearly cut off.  If the British crossed the bridge, they could breach Washington’s defenses and annihilate the American army.   The full story is now told in the new bestselling book, The Indispensables: Marblehead’s Diverse Soldier-Mariners Who Shaped the Country, Formed the Navy, and Rowed Washington Across the Delaware. The book is a Band of Brothers-style treatment of the regiment and the leading revolutionary citizens from Marblehead, a unique largely unknown group of Americans who changed the course of history. The crucial bridge...
    A MUM has revealed the trick to ensuring her house is always clean is her savvy ‘6/10’ cleaning method. TikTok user Organized Chaos shared the list she created, which involves six daily tasks and 10 weekly steps. 2A savvy mum has shown off her '6/10' list which makes cleaning less stressfulCredit: @organizedchaos4/Tiktok On her @organizedchaos4, she wrote: “I created it for busy mums like me. “Each day I make the daily six a priority. “I put everything else out of my mind for the time being.” Every day, the six cleaning jobs she tackles are making the beds, washing the dishes, scrubbing the sink, wiping the counters, vacuuming the house and doing one load of laundry. She added: “This simplistic approach helps you stay focused and prevents the overwhelming pressure we sometimes face from managing our households.” She also has 10 jobs she does weekly, and these include wiping out the fridge and microwave, tidying her pantry, mopping the floors and cleaning the bathrooms.

    Trying to come to grips with the state of the sports world in the final days of 2021 isn’t easy. We’re ending the year the way we began it, stressing over our favorite athletes and teams while another COVID-19 surge forces colleges and professional sports leagues to put their fingers on the pause button again. And that’s a shame for 2021, a year that rekindled our love for watching live sports in packed stadiums and celebrating with each other in the up-close-and-personal manner we had grown accustomed to in the “before” times. The crowd of partying Milwaukee Bucks fans watching playoff games in the “Deer District” outside of Fiserv Forum provided us with a clear reminder of how much fun sports can be. “It’s what we do this for and why we love sports because it creates this community,” Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell said in September. “The Deer District and that scene for the city, that’s what we want when we belong to a community. “In these times, when people are arguing about everything,...
    Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren told "Outnumbered" on Monday that "forgotten Americans" do not want President Biden’s socialist spending.  MANCHIN BLASTS WH STAFF FOR LEAKING 'ABSOLUTELY INEXCUSABLE' THINGS ABOUT HIM AFTER REJECTING BBB TOMI LAHREN: It is these continual intimidation tactics that the far left progressives are going to use on people like Joe Manchin. But, he is the embodiment of democracy. I think the Democratic Party though, they believe that they answer to the media and they believe that they answer to Twitter and to social media. But they actually answer to the people. And Kayleigh, you and I talk a lot about the forgotten Americans that Trump remembered but those forgotten Americans are also Democrats. And there are a lot of moderate Democrats out there that believe in what he’s doing that don’t believe in Build Back Better. When’s the last time you saw someone walking around with a Build Back Better hat on? Never. That’s the answer to that.  WATCH THE FULL "OUTNUMBERED" VIDEO BELOW: Video This article was written by Fox News staff.

    AMIR KHAN claims he has finally thrown Kell Brook a bone - the Sheffield ace insists he has blacked Bolton’s golden boy into a corner. The truth over why 34-year-old Khan has finally agreed to face his 35-year-old welterweight rival - 17 years after their rivalry began - will remain a big-money mystery. 8Amir Khan and Kell Brook will finally settle their differences inside the ring on February 2022Credit: Reuters 8Khan and Brook shared their first face off on Sky Sports' Ringside in October 2012 The bout would have been red-hot around 2011-2012 when both were on red-hot streaks.

    Meredith Kercher's killer has said he 'just wants to be forgotten' after finishing his sentence for murdering the British student two years early. Rudy Guede, 34, was formally released on Tuesday, 14 years after the grisly murder and sexual assault of 21-year-old Kercher in Perugia, Italy, in November 2007. Ivorian-born Guede was convicted in 2008 for the murder that also saw Kercher's American flatmate, Amanda Knox, jailed but then sensationally acquitted alongside her Italian boyfriend at the time, Raffaele Sollecito. Guede was found guilty after his DNA was discovered on Kercher's body despite his claims that he was in the bathroom listening to music when she was killed. Those who know the killer say he is a model prisoner who has put the past behind him and spends his days studying for his master's degree.   'Unfortunately there are many media outlets and newspapers that want to interview Rudy. I say "unfortunately" because Rudy is not a star and after 14 years he just wants to be forgotten,' said Claudio Mariani, a professor of criminology who helped with Guede's rehabilitation. 'There...

Starring Lily Collins as a young American woman who lands a dream job at a fashion PR firm in Paris, the show is both sweet and irritating. Not only are the men questionable, but some of the friendships are, too.

    NOTHING better than going exploring during your holiday vacation and discovering unexplored territory. A 15-year-old TikToker went on a walk in the forest behind her Tenneesse rental home and discovered a 1950's diner untouched by time. 12A TikTok user discovered a gas station and diner lost in timeCredit: SWNS 12She discovered it in a clearing of the woodsCredit: SWNS 12The establishment had been running back in 1950Credit: SWNS Hailing all the way from Florida, Rylee and her family had heard from the locals that there was an abandoned building near their rental home.

                      by Newt Gingrich  More than 150 years after he led the Union Army to victory in the Civil War, Ulysses S. Grant may receive another military promotion. Recently, lawmakers introduced bipartisan legislation in the U.S. Congress that would promote Grant posthumously to the Army’s highest rank, General of the Armies. This honor has only been conferred twice: to John “Black Jack” Pershing following his leadership during World War I and to George Washington posthumously for the nation’s bicentennial in 1976. As Grant’s 200th birthday approaches (April 27, 2022), it’s understandable that supporters are looking for a new and proper way to honor one of our nation’s greatest and most consequential military leaders. After all, Grant played a vital role in preserving the U.S. by keeping the Union together. In short, he helped save the country. Before the war, Grant’s life was in a downward spiral. He wasn’t good at farming. He wasn’t good at business. He started drinking and didn’t handle his liquor well. But he had previously proven to...
    The fishermen were diving at night, so could not be sure at first what they had found in the mud of the River Musi. But as the dirt was washed away and the sun rose, the treasure's breathtaking nature must have become clear: gold and jewels from what was once the richest and most powerful empire in South East Asia. '[It's] the kind of thing that you might read about in Sinbad The Sailor and think it was made up. It's actually real,' says Dr Sean Kingsley, a British marine archaeologist whose online magazine, Wreckwatch has published a study of the finds: 'From the shallows have surfaced glittering gold and jewels befitting this richest of kingdoms.' Srivijaya is probably the greatest empire you've never heard of: known as the Island of Gold, the floating kingdom ruled Indonesia (and much of South East Asia) for more than 600 years. In the 12th century, it vanished without trace, like the fictitious island of Atlantis, said by the Greek writer Plato to have been submerged by the Atlantic Ocean. Srivijaya's treasures, even its...

    Colin Powell has died of COVID-19. One of the most unjustly lauded individuals in early twenty-first century America, an honest portrayal of Powell's legacy turns out starkly negative. From his cover-up of the My Lai Massacre to his lies about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction, Powell holds a great deal of responsibility for many of America's worst crimes in the last 60 years. Born in 1937 in Harlem, Powell's parents were immigrants from Jamaica. He started working as a young boy in Jewish-owned stores around his house and learned Yiddish well enough to speak it for the rest of his life, sometimes speaking to Israeli reporters in the language. Powell worked hard and went to City College to study geology. He wasn't much of a student at that point. He graduated but certainly with no honors or any particular direction. This made him perfect for the Army. Powell joined the ROTC at City College. He liked it a lot more than college so he made it a career. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant and assigned to...

    CAMPAIGNERS have demanded all cancers are treated with urgency as the NHS bounces back from the pandemic. They want those battling rare forms of the disease to have a spotlight shown on their plights. 10Phil Jerrod died this week aged 42 from a rare cancer It comes after Phil Jerrod's death from a rare form of cancer last month shocked the comedy world. The 42-year-old died after suffering with sarcoma - which affects bones and soft tissues. There are around 100 different types of sarcomas, with about 5,300 people each year diagnosed with them in the UK. Campaigners fear 35,600 fewer cancers were diagnosed between April and September last year. And new statistics from Cancer52 – which represents nearly 100 patient support groups and charities – show over half of cancer deaths in England are a result of lesser known cancers, with symptoms often missed until it’s too late. The "big four" cancers - breast, prostate, lung and bowel – are better understood, with more funding for their research and treatment. It is this lack of understanding of the smaller...

    Grapevine, Texas — A young girl from Texas will soon be packing for a special mission halfway around the world. Her goal is to change lives. At just 8 years old, Paisley Elliott uses her globe, not for play but for planning a trip to Uganda. Elliot's passion is helping the most vulnerable. When she was only 4, she heard about refugees in a Bible class, which led to a lot of tough questions for her mom Tali Jones. "I'm kind of bending down with my phone on Google looking up which countries are safest and which ones are taking in the most refugees because this was not a topic I was planning to discuss with a 4-year-old," Jones told CBS News. Paisley Elliot is planning a trip to Uganda to change lives. Handout Elliot's curiosity became a call to action. That's the reason for her trip to Uganda.

    Two decades on from one of the darkest days in American history, an activist has shared her awe-inspiring account of the fight for students poisoned by the toxic air left in wake of the 9/11 tragedy.  Lila Nordstrom, from New York, was a student at Stuyvesant High School when the World Trade Center collapsed on September 11, 2001, less than a mile away from her high school. She was returned to class weeks later despite the air remaining thick with debris, dust and smoke.   In her remarkable memoir, Some Kids Left Behind: A Survivor's Fight for Health Care, the author shares how the illnesses and deaths of her classmates related to the effects of the 9/11 cleanup inspired her to take action.      By the time Lila attended her twentieth Stuyvesant reunion, five of her classmates had been diagnosed with lymphoma, while a pupil one year younger than her had already passed away.  A new book has detailed the fight for healthcare for students poisoned by toxic air in wake of attack on the World Trade Center. Pictured, the Twin Towers...
    Central Yemen — It's been almost 20 years since the September 11 attacks that prompted the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan and Washington's declaration of a "war on terror." But almost 2,000 miles away from Afghanistan, the group that launched the attacks on America is still operating with impunity. Al Qaeda has taken advantage of the chaotic civil war in Yemen not only to survive, but to plan and carry out attacks on Americans and their allies. CBS News correspondent Holly Williams got rare access to join Yemeni troops as they fight a bloody conflict that gets so little attention, it's sometimes referred to as "the forgotten war." Yemeni government forces brought Williams and a CBS News photographer to the front line, where they're fighting for control of a barren expanse of desert. The troops are battling Houthi rebels who've seized the capital city of Sanaa and huge swathes of land around it.

    Four children died this week in cars suffocated by high temperatures, bringing the total of such deaths to 14 so far this year. The USA Today report indicates that the majority of these deaths occurred because the father, mother, or the child’s caregiver left him unattended in the vehicle. Two of the most recent deaths occurred after the children went into the cars on their own. In Hibbing, Minnesota, 3-year-old twins were reported missing and then they were found unconscious in an overheated car. One of the minors died. In another case in Maple City, Kansas, a 2-year-old died from heat exposure extreme after getting into a car on his own. Two other children died after being left in the cars by their parents. In one instance, a 5-year-old boy died in Springfield, Virginia; while a 7-month-old baby lost his life in Mesa, Arizona. Tips to avoid deaths of children suffocated in cars KidsAndCars.org, a national safety organization that tracks child car deaths, makes the following recommendations to avoid accidents of this nature: 1.

    Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida responded Friday to President Joe Biden’s “Governor Who?” comment that the president made Thursday when a reporter asked him about their ongoing feud. “I guess I’m not surprised that Biden doesn’t remember me. I guess the question is what else has he forgotten?” DeSantis said during a press conference at Chipola College in Marianna, Florida. WATCH: “Biden has forgotten about the crisis at our southern border, I can tell you that,” DeSantis continued. “Biden has forgotten about the inflation that’s biting the budgets of families all throughout our country. Biden has forgotten about the demonstrators who are fighting for freedom down in Cuba. Biden has even forgotten about the Constitution itself as we saw with what he did with this moratorium.” “And I can just tell you that I’m the governor ‘who’ protects parents and their ability to make the right choices for their kids’ education. I’m the governor who protects the jobs and education and businesses in Florida by not letting the federal government lock us down.” “I’m the governor who answers...
    Heres Proof Angelina Jolie Lived Her Best Life on Vacation in Italy Germany’s Commerzbank reports second-quarter loss as restructuring, write-off charges bite The blank stares used to gnaw at Matt Norman. The Australian filmmaker struggled to comprehend why so few of his countrymen knew his uncle’s name or were aware of his acts of heroism. To Matt, his uncle was the forgotten figure from one of the most iconic sports photos ever taken. Peter Norman is the man sharing the medal podium with Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Olympics when they raised their black-gloved fists to the sky to protest racial inequality as "The Star-Spangled Banner" played. While Smith and Carlos risked their lives and careers to shine a spotlight on the discrimination that Black Americans faced, the elder Norman also invited controversy by donning a badge on the medal stand in support of their cause. Peter returned home to Melbourne a pariah despite securing a silver medal in the 200 meters and clocking an Australian record that still stands 52 years later. It frustrated Peter’s...
    A broiling Cuban evening, October 2003. Major General Geoffrey Miller, a squat, pugnacious artillery officer who is now commandant of the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, stands in the shade of a palm tree by his headquarters. His interrogators, he tells me proudly, 'are developing enormously valuable intelligence' which has prevented terrorist attacks in both America and Britain: 'I think of Guantanamo as the interrogation battle lab in the war against terror,' he says. Their methods, he assures me, are humane. Occasionally, dealing with a hardened suspect, they may have to become 'aggressive'. But usually they get their information by 'establishing a rapport' and the prisoners give up their secrets because they have come to admire the decent, civilised values that Guantanamo represents. To viewers of the acclaimed film drama The Mauritanian, the true story of former Guantanamo prisoner Mohamedou Ould Slahi, Miller's assertions may seem hard to believe. Detainees in orange jumpsuits sit in a holding area under the watchful eyes of Military Police at Camp X-Ray at Naval Base Guantanamo Bay Arrested in his home country...
    by Kristina M. Lee, Colorado State University Walter Plywaski's death earlier this year from complications related to COVID-19 went largely unnoticed by national media. Only an invitation by his family to donate to the civil liberties group ACLU in Plywaski's memory gave hint to his legacy in the fight for religious freedom. Almost 70 years ago, Plywaski fought for the right of atheists to become U.S. citizens – and won. As a scholar of religious and political rhetoric, I believe that Plywaski's fight is worth remembering. Stories like Plywaski's give an insight into the discrimination atheists in the U.S. face even today and the role that those professing no faith have had in holding society accountable to the goals of religious tolerance and freedom. 'Seeking admission on your own terms'Polish native Walter Plywaski, born Wladyslaw Plywacki, spent five years in Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War. After being liberated from Dachau, the Bavarian camp in which 41,500 prisoners died, he worked as an interpreter before immigrating to the U.S and serving four years in the U.S. Air...
    A BITCOIN hunter is taking on crypto's lost billions as he is hired by investors who have forgotten their passwords or become locked out of their wallets. Known online only as Dave Bitcoin, the cyber sleuth is tasked with using specialised software to generate and test millions and of potential passwords to try an access lost fortunes. 2DaveBitcoin searches for investors missing fortunes (STOCK)Credit: Getty Dave - who runs Wallet Recovery Services (WRS) - takes 20 per cent of the crypto inside the wallet if he is successful, or 15 per cent if the value is over $100,000. He told The Sun Online he receives up to 30 requests every day - numbers which can spike when crypto currencies start to enjoy boom periods. Dogecoin's price spike earlier in the year saw numerous people who had purchased the coin get in touch with him.

    A BITCOIN gold rush is on as hackers are attempted to crack into dormant wallets which are estimated to contain some $140billion worth of crypto. Experts estimate 20 per cent of all the crypto currency has either been forgotten about or lost - and this could be up for grabs for industrious cyber criminals who view breaking into the online wallets as a challenge. 4 Crypto data firm Chainalysis believe some one fifth of all Bitcoin in existence has now either been lost or forgotten - some of it believed to be impossible to access - with a current value of around $140billion. But wallets which were stored online rather than on hardware are sparking the interest of potential hackers who may attempt to break in and scoop out the forgotten coins. High value wallets are often passed around online hacking communities as they challenge each other to open them up to get at the hidden treasure inside. Hackers are believed to steal around $10million worth of crypto currency every single day, according to Atlas VPN....
    Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines are rising stars in the Indianapolis Colts’ backfield, but people forget that Marlon Mack’s balanced game gives Indy a unique advantage. The Indianapolis Colts are among the NFL teams opponents should be concerned about entering the 2021 season. Imagine the numbers Mack can put up behind a more experienced Nelson, another stud back in Taylor, along with new left tackle Eric Fisher when he is 100 percent recovered from his own Achilles tear. The running game for Indy has the potential to be the best it’s been in a long time. Hines has proven that he can handle the punishment of running between the tackles, but he’s better used as a receiver and on special teams with his 5-foot-9, 196-pound frame. So while Mack improves as a receiver, the Colts can still use Hines out the backfield, only adding more weapons to their arsenal. With Carson Wentz joining Indy, the Colts may want to ease him in by using the running game often until he’s mastered the offense. That falls right into Mack’s playbook, as he...
    Sly Stone of Sly and the Family Stone in a scene from the documentary "Summer of Soul." Searchlight Pictures "Summer of Soul," a new film directed by Questlove, hit theaters and Hulu on July 2. The movie centers on the Harlem Cultural Festival, the forgotten "Black Woodstock" of 1969. Questlove didn't even know it existed before he was shown footage of the music event. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Hulu 's "Summer of Soul" has all the trappings of a Questlove film, starting in the first five minutes of the documentary. Those opening moments show an energetic 19-year-old Stevie Wonder, dressed in a snazzy brown suit and mustard-colored shirt, beating tom tom drums, hi-hats, and cymbals at 1969's Harlem Cultural Festival.  It was a conscious decision not to simply show footage of Wonder performing his usual wizardry at the keyboard, according to The Roots drummer and filmmaker Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, who directed the film. Opening on this moment highlights something many may not have known about Wonder's artistry, setting the stage for a film that...
    A FEW years ago, James May and Richard Hammond blew up my house. So I had to build a new one. Work started back in December of 2019, and everything was going swimmingly until someone left the door open at a Chinese bat lab. 6Curtains? Nope. There’s a six-month wait for those tooCredit: Alamy My house at this point was not so much a home as a 7ft-high breeze-block eyesore, entombed in a labyrinth of scaffolding. When the wind blew gently through the poles, it sounded like the whole site was crying. I know I was. After five weeks, work resumed and I assumed all would return to normal. But no. Because while people were focusing on Covid, a beetle in Canada was gnawing though the world’s supply of timber. Today, you just can’t get any through the usual channels and if you do manage to hook up with a dealer round the back of the Dog And Crack Pipe, it’s going to cost you about eleventy million pounds for three sheets of four-by-two. Then there’s steel. Right now, my...
    I recently had lunch with a friend I have not seen in person since the pandemic began. It was very exciting. So exciting that I forgot an important fact of L.A. life: If you agree to meet someone who chooses a lunch spot in Brentwood, you need to reconnoiter the parking situation. Does the restaurant have a free lot or valet? Is there street parking in the immediate vicinity or is the closest non-permit side street a half-mile away? In other words, I forgot that, in Los Angeles, the follow-up question to “what time?” is “where should I park?” Which meant I spent 20 minutes circling a four-block radius of the restaurant in question before almost sobbing the question into my phone. This was quite embarrassing, considering that I have lived here much longer than my friend and pride myself on my hard-won L.A. street skills. (When in doubt, take Beverly, and yellow curb restrictions are not in effect before 7 a.m, after 6 p.m. and on Sundays unless otherwise noted.) But after more than a year of keeping...

    More On: new england patriots Patriots star skips minicamp amid contract dispute Giants make adjustment to training camp schedule Veteran QB suffers mysterious hand injury Ex-Patriots star’s fight led to torturous Bill Belichick film session Jarrett Stidham’s future in New England seems blurry to say the least. The third-year quarterback, who turns 25 in August, is intent on becoming the Patriots’ starting quarterback – but the competition in OTAs has been steep. Stidham’s up against last year’s starter, Cam Newton, and Alabama product Mac Jones, who the Patriots selected 15th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. Journeyman Brian Hoyer is also on the roster, and the 35-year-old quarterback has the most experience playing in New England out of the foursome. A fourth-round pick in the 2019 draft, Stidham was considered by many to usher in a new quarterback era for the Patriots following Tom Brady’s departure to Tampa Bay. Instead, New England signed Newton to a one-year deal. During the 2020 season, however, Newton struggled under center and the Patriots ended the year with their first losing...
    What does it mean to lose so much of a career that looked like no one else’s? That’s the question Connie Hawkins leaves us with. Broadly speaking, we remember athletes for two reasons — what they did or how they did it. The points they scored, the titles they won, the times they charged into the stands to fight with fans; all fall into the former category. It’s a good way to ensure your place in posterity. No one can change the facts afterward. But it’s the how that sticks in the collective mind more readily. A player who does something in a way that hasn’t been seen before, or that no one else can match, might never be forgotten. The how made a superstar out of Charles Barkley, always punching above his height, and built the legend of Allen Iverson. Long before Nikola Jokic was a likely MVP, he was beloved for being this bizarre amalgamation of traits: a point guard’s mind in a pro wrestler’s body. You don’t even have to be great if you’re distinct enough. There’s...
    (CNN)A decade ago, just before my son was born, I surprised myself by leaving New York to move back to the small California town where I grew up. Suddenly, for the first time since college, I was living day in and day out in a small bungalow six blocks from the home I'd left almost two decades before. Returning had an odd intensity: A slant of light or a trip down a forgotten road would open memories of people and things I hadn't thought about in decades. I'd run into high school classmates pushing kids in their carts at the grocery store; we'd meet -- happy, but baffled to be grown. Tess Taylor Return was mostly joyful, but sometimes it was odd. Every so often, just as I thought I knew what I was doing, I'd turn a corner and find that I was lost. One day I set out to drive a route I had driven many, many times only to find that a freeway on-ramp I remembered was no longer there. I parked on a side street and...
    Robotics, digital trickery, trackless rides — modern theme parks are full of technological innovations. Rolly Crump, the 91-year-old designer who helped shape It’s a Small World, the Enchanted Tiki Room and the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland, has his share of myth-making tales as well. He’s one of the few surviving ex-Disney staffers who not only knew Walt Disney but also enjoyed a somewhat close relationship with him. When it comes to the creative process, he can be blunt — myth-shattering, if you will. Consider this Crump insight: Sometimes the best theme park rides are built on lots of beer, probably even more marijuana and large purchases of pantyhose. Now, Crump’s influence can be seen in a new ride at Knott’s Berry Farm that’s based on an old ride at Knott’s Berry Farm. Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair is an adorable, video-game like animated romp with cartoon critters and lots of pies — a respectful and nostalgic 2021 endeavor that livens up the park by celebrating its history. The original 1970s Knott’s Bear-y Tales was...
    The founding fathers’ unequivocal language in the Bill of Rights that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” immediately after the freedoms of religion, speech, and assembly were reinforced was not accidental. The epic battle for control over gunpowder and weaponry between the British government and American colonists motivated much of the action in the Revolutionary War. The fight over gun control is in American’s DNA.  The first shot of the American Revolution was not the infamous Shot Heard Round the World in April 1775 when the Redcoats fired first on American Patriots on Lexington Green attempting to protect their precious store of gunpowder and weapons from British confiscation. Four months earlier, in now-largely-forgotten raids, Loyalists opened fire on a mob of angry colonists attempting to seize control of precious stores of gunpowder. Alarmed by reports that King George III had signed a secret order banning the export of arms, gunpowder, and military supplies, colonists set their sites on the poorly guarded stockpile of weapons and ammunition at Fort William and Mary near...

    Getty New York Jets linebacker Blake Cashman walking off the football field. There’s a lot going on with the New York Jets at the end of May. The hype around rookie quarterback Zach Wilson. The return of CJ Mosley. Plus the continuation of voluntary OTAs. The one thing no one is talking about is Blake Cashman. He’s the forgotten man in the linebacker room.Other Things Stealing the HeadlinesVideoVideo related to blake cashman is the forgotten man in jets linebacker room2021-05-29T08:00:21-04:00 One of the biggest stories as the COVID restrictions are loosening is the return of a certain former All-Pro linebacker. Mosley is expected to take one of the starting linebacker positions in head coach Robert Saleh’s 4-3 scheme. Another one of those spots is expected to be taken by former first-rounder Jarrad Davis of the Detroit Lions. Gang Green doled out over $75 million in guarantees during free agency and it’s worth noting that Davis was the first player that got a contract from the Jets back in March. That leaves one vacant linebacker spot up for grabs....
                      by Richard Gardiner  In the years following the bitter Civil War, a former Union general took a holiday originated by former Confederates and helped spread it across the entire country. The holiday was Memorial Day, and this year’s commemoration on May 27 marks the 151st anniversary of its official nationwide observance. The annual commemoration was born in the former Confederate States in 1866 and adopted by the United States in 1868. It is a holiday in which the nation honors its military dead. Civil War Union Gen. John A. Logan.Gen. John A. Logan, who headed the largest Union veterans’ fraternity at that time, the Grand Army of the Republic, is usually credited as being the originator of the holiday. Yet when General Logan established the holiday, he acknowledged its genesis among the Union’s former enemies, saying, “It was not too late for the Union men of the nation to follow the example of the people of the South.” I’m a scholar who has written – with co-author Daniel Bellware – a history of Memorial Day....
    In a very different time — yet in similar economic straits — then-presidential candidate Franklin D. Roosevelt spoke of the “forgotten man,” the American left behind by seismic trends and sweeping changes beyond his control. “These unhappy times call for the building of plans that rest upon the forgotten, the unorganized but the indispensable units of economic power,” FDR told Americans on April 7, 1932 in a radio address. He went on to call for policies “that build from the bottom up and not from the top down, that put their faith once more in the forgotten man at the bottom of the economic pyramid.” Those once-forgotten Americans are forgotten again today in President Joe Biden’s effort to “build back better.” Biden, as FDR might say, has turned to “the illusions of economic magic, ” expecting that “a huge expenditure of public funds … will completely solve the unemployment problem.” (RELATED: Jobless Claims Hit New Pandemic Low As Americans Return To Work) Such illusions of economic magic hold that providing out-of-work Americans with excessive unemployment benefits won’t hold them back from finding jobs,...
    A compilation of portraits that EJ Joyner drew to remember incarcerated people who died from COVID-19Elisabeth "EJ" Joyner/Mourning Our Losses Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.Elisabeth “EJ” Joyner sat on the floor of her cell at Arrendale State Prison in Georgia, staring at the mugshot. It showed the unsmiling face of Carmelo Herrera, a 56-year-old incarcerated man in New Jersey who had recently died from COVID-19. Joyner adjusted her thick glasses to get a better look at his dark brown eyes, broad forehead, and salt-and-pepper mustache. She fashioned a makeshift desk by balancing a chess board on top of her bent knees and laid a piece of typing paper on top. Then, using a pencil and shading stumps she’d rolled herself, she began sketching his face. Since last summer, Joyner, a 37-year-old portrait artist, has been working with a team of activists on a project called Mourning Our Losses to memorialize the thousands of incarcerated people who have died from COVID-19...
    The term “information warfare” may not have been coined in 1775, but America’s Founding Fathers absolutely understood the importance of controlling the narrative. When the smoke and chaos cleared on that fateful, bloody morning of April 19, 1775, the politically-savvy Patriot leaders immediately realized the all-important question of “Who fired first?” on Lexington Green would forever distinguish for the world between the aggressors and defenders in the American Revolution.  Refusing to sit back and allow the occupying British forces to control the narrative, the Provincial Congress formed a committee within days, including Marblehead merchant and future congressman and vice president, Elbridge Gerry, to gather depositions to convey to London the American version of events at Lexington and Concord. Compiling the accounts was only half the battle, though. They knew they must get their version of events across the Atlantic before British commander General Thomas Gage’s. The full account of one of the most important, yet forgotten, voyages in American history is now fully told in the new bestselling book, The Indispensables: Marblehead’s Diverse Soldier-Mariners Who Shaped the Country, Formed the Navy,...
