    A LAWYER has warned of the dangers of Walmart self-checkout – labelling it unfair to shoppers. John P. Guidry II is a lawyer on TikTok who shares his expertise with viewers, including tips when it comes to shopping. 2John says supermarket chains try to criminalise you for misusing self checkoutsCredit: TikTok/orlandodefenseattorney 2Customers can be punished by thousands for even the smallest of mistakesCredit: Getty In a recent video, John warned viewers about the hazards of self-checkout and that and that even if you don't intentionally steal while using the counter, Walmart can still come after you. This situation doesn't just apply to Walmart but any big box store. In John’s eyes the injustice comes in the form of scanning mistakes and how they can disproportionally impact a customer compared to a staff member. “Walmart’s very own cashiers know how to use the scanners inside and out, and they still make mistakes,” he said.

    THOUSANDS of Americans need to act by a certain date to claim their $300 direct payments, as processing is set to happen this week. The payments come as a result of the Idaho state legislature, which passed a bill earlier this month to devote $500million in tax rebates. 1Idaho residents need to file taxes in 2020 and 2021 to receive a $300 rebate checkCredit: Getty Along with the rebate, there will be 5.8 percent flat tax rate implemented for individuals and corporations. That's down from 6%. As far as the rebates go, the Idaho State Tax Commission said it will begin processing the $300 payments in late September. The last day of the month is on Friday, September 30 – so that means it should start by then.

    M&Ms are one of the most popular sweets in the world, and fans are just discovering what the 'm' on the chocolate stands for. The delicious chocolate was invented in the US in 1941 and the snack has become known for its hard-shell exterior with velvety smooth interior. While many speculate the name and initials was inspired by the 'mmm' sound made when you eat the chocolate - this isn't the case. Apparently 'M&Ms' and the initial stamped on the chocolate stem from the names of the two founders - Forrest E. Mars Sr., who started Mars Inc., and Bruce Murrie.

    I don't really want to go into the details of the end of my marriage to the journalist Julie Burchill.  Just let me say that after ten years together, Julie had grown bored with me and fallen in love with someone else. It happens. Our break-up wasn’t easy on our ten-year-old son Jack – but divorce is rarely easy.  We did the classic we-both-love-you and nothing-is-going-to-change speech that divorcing parents always make.  In the days that followed the end of my marriage, I told myself I had to man up for Jack’s sake. There was no time for sorrow and self-pity. My main task was helping Jack adjust to this big scary change by creating a sense of continuity. The toughest challenge I faced in those early days was trying to hide my sadness from Jack. The toughest challenge Jack faced was hiding his sadness from me. No doubt this makes them feel better, but I suspect it provides little comfort for children. In the days that followed, I told myself I had to man up for Jack’s sake. There...

    Two men are facing federal charges after they were allegedly busted selling thousands of fentanyl pills in Connecticut. Oscar Flores, age 34, of Mount Rainier, Maryland, and Severo Alelar, age 25, of Hyattsville, Maryland, were indicted by a federal grand jury in Hartford Thursday, Sept. 22, for fentanyl trafficking. The indictment came just weeks after the pair was arrested on Thursday, Sept. 8 following a sting operation in Wethersfield, the US Attorney’s Office in Connecticut said. Flores, Alelar, and others allegedly showed up to a prearranged meeting site in an SUV intending to sell approximately 15,000 fentanyl pills, prosecutors said. What they didn’t know was that the buyers were actually undercover agents with the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). The agents told the group that they needed to drive to a second location to pick up the money, prompting the pair to follow the agents in their SUV. While driving to the second location, a Rocky Hill police officer attempted to stop the suspects' SUV for a traffic violation. That’s when the driver of the SUV tried fleeing, driving...

    By the time New York businessman Bob Williams realized his marriage to a much younger, buff and handsome South American man was a sham, it was too late. He was down $50,000 and well on his way to a nervous breakdown. As his marriage unraveled in just a few short months, Williams was in for another shocker. His husband called the cops, alleged abuse, and, in doing so, fell under safeguards afforded to immigrants under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). That law is praised for helping immigrant men and women victims of domestic abuse, but critics say it also gives marriage scammers an all-too-easy path to securing Green Cards — and hundreds or thousands cheat the system each year. ‘What they do, and it’s apparently common, is they seek out guys they can trick into a relationship to rip you off and get papers,’ Williams, who is in his 50s, told DailyMail.com. ‘And there’s no place for us to go, yet the politicians can't stop bragging about the services they offer the immigrants.’ Federal authorities earlier this year bust...

    Gwinnett County, Georgia, has validated 15,000 to 20,000 voters after a voter campaign challenged the status of thousands of voters before the November midterm election. County officials announced at the meeting of the election board on Wednesday that they had approximately 16,000 voters left to go through, per a Reuters report. The county has a total of 562,000 active voters. MAR-A-LAGO SPECIAL MASTER GIVES TRUMP SHORT DEADLINE TO PROVE PLANTED EVIDENCE CLAIMS The challenge came from VoterGA, which filed an inquiry into the voters under the Election Integrity Act of 2021. VoterGA is joined by the American Project and is similar to other campaigns and groups that back former President Donald Trump's claims the 2020 election was stolen. Elections supervisor Zach Manifold told the board that 15,000 to 20,000 voters followed a legitimate process to receive their ballots. Voting rights advocates, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, have expressed their disapproval of the challenge, stating that VoterGA is "abusing the law," as they claim the Election Integrity Act was intended for citizens who personally...

    Thousands of bus shelters could be added to Los Angeles streets over the next decade under an advertising contract approved by the City Council this week. On Tuesday, the council voted 12 to 1 to give the joint venture Tranzito-Vector a 10-year contract to advertise on hundreds of bus shelters in exchange for installing and maintaining 3,000 such structures across the city. In Los Angeles, fewer than a quarter of its 8,000 bus stops have shelters. The move would markedly increase shade for bus riders forced to wait in the sun as heat waves are predicted to grow more severe and frequent with climate change. But critics say it opens the door to more digital advertising, which neighbors see as an eyesore, and to dependence on funding from that advertising, which could be elusive. The company promises to upgrade the experience for bus riders with real-time transit data, more shade and cover from the rain, and has plans for possible scooter and bike docks. The aim is to provide shade for at least 75% of transit...
    Martha’s Vineyard has been all over the news. The tony resort community so loves aiding and comforting the undocumented immigrants who were flown in from Florida that it hugged them — for all of 48 hours. Oddly, the Left became unhinged when red-state governors — whose states the last two years were flooded with some 3 million people who entered the country illegally — finally decided to spread welcoming chores among affluent blue-state communities. It was a natural fit. Most, like Washington, D.C., and New York, were on record as sanctuary city jurisdictions. In the abstract, they endorse open borders and celebrate diversity — from the serenity of thousands of miles away. The uproar at Martha’s Vineyard prompted the Democratic hierarchy to do some explaining. Why had it not earlier objected to the federal government night flights of tens of thousands of border-crossers to red-state communities that had opposed illegal immigration? And why be angry with governors who were only emulating that policy by flying in a mere 50 newcomers — in the light of day — to a far...
    Thousands of desperate Russians are scrambling to flee the country to dodge Putin's mobilisation, as miles-long queues form to escape into border countries. Men of fighting age are racing to avoid a potential call-up after Putin ordered Moscow's first mobilisation since World War Two, with plans to immediately start conscripting some 300,000 troops to fight on the frontline. Many flights were sold out yesterday amid the panic, while others appeared to resort to drastic tactics to avoid the conscription, with Google searches for 'how to break an arm at home' - skyrocketing hours after Putin's speech. A wife from Tyumen in Siberia said: 'I will not let my husband go. I'll break his both legs. His duty is to raise his children.'  The authorities issued a a special warning issued to potential recruits that they face legal sanctions if they self-harm by breaking arms or legs to avoid the call-up.  Photos and videos have also emerged of airports crowded with young men and heavy traffic near border crossings, driven by fears the country might lock down and send more civilians to...

    Thirty-two bricks of heroin were nabbed and four suspects were slapped with charges in a major narcotics bust in Trenton, authorities announced on Monday, Sep. 19. Detectives surveilled the area of 2 Sanhican Dr. as a response to numerous complaints made by local residents to the department. The following suspects were arrested and charged, police said: Anthony T. Baldwin, 31, was found with 15 bricks of heroin and $951 in cash, police said. Kendall K. McCray, 34, was allegedly found with 12 bricks of heroin, 9 grams of crack-cocaine, and $1,020 in cash. Thomas E. Hollis, 24, was found with 5 heroin bricks and $320 cash, police said. Elvin R. Rivera, 37, was allegedly found with a gram of crack-cocaine and $10 cash. The suspects were caught within 500 feet of a park, police said. They were each charged with drug offenses.
    De Blasio said, "Every adult in our schools is now vaccinated, and that's going to be the rule going forward." Mayor Eric Adams maintained the mandate, recently noting that "city workers served on the front lines during the pandemic, and by getting vaccinated, they are, once again, showing how they are willing to do the right thing to protect themselves and all New Yorkers." Those who did not do what was perceived by Adams to be "the right thing" did not have their livelihoods protected, despite having "served on the front lines." In addition to firefighters, police officers, and teachers losing their jobs on account of personal medical decisions, tens of thousands of health care workers were similarly terminated after Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul expanded her predecessor's mandate to include staff in various additional hospital settings.Timing and legalityWhereas the firing of thousands of unvaccinated NYPD police officers may leave an overburdened police force with even fewer hands to deal with a 36% surge in crime, the loss of thousands of educators will similarly have a negative impact on...
    New York City's Mayor has said that migrants arriving in his city from Texas could be housed on cruise ships as he considers taking legal action against Governor Abbott amid the country's spiraling migrant issue.  Eric Adams revealed that his team could lodge a lawsuit against the Lone Star State's Governor as immigrants in their thousands continue to be shipped across the country - in many cases, without prior warning.  Republican governors have now upped the escalating immigration war again in Democrat-run areas by threatening to fly illegal migrants to President Biden’s home state of Delaware.  Busses and planes full of illegal immigrants have so far arrived in New York, Chicago, Washington DC, and Massachusetts from the southern borders.   During a series of scathing interviews, Adams said that the dire humanitarian crisis being faced was to some extent caused by 'the governors in the southern states.'  At least six busses of asylum seekers arrived in New York from Texas on Sunday - while shelters in the city reached 'breaking point.' In total, over 11,000 migrants have arrived in the city since...
    Shocking video shows the terrifying moment a jet plunged into the ground and erupted into a huge ball of fire, killing the pilot inside. The video posted to Twitter Sunday starts off with two planes racing across the Reno mountains when one of them gets too low and crashes into a field. It quickly erupted into a ball of fire as it skidded across the grassy knoll sending flames flying in its wake as thousands of fans at the event watched in horror and many others watched via livestream. The plane bounced several times as pieces of the plane seemed to fall off.  'Oh no, oh no,' the announcer says, as his co-host at the Jet Gold Race  says: 'There was a problem, we've had a catastrophe here Thomas.'  A judge then calls a red flag as the video shows smoke billowing from the crash, and the National Championship Air Races was suspended in the aftermath. The pilot died in the catastrophe, officials announced later, but would not release his name at the press conference. But witnesses identified the pilot...

Which is more than can be hoped for the beleaguered Spanish royal family, for whom the funeral has caused a right old logistical hoo-ha. In short: King Juan Carlos I — Spain's disgraced former monarch who abdicated in 2014 and, since 2020, has been living in the UAE in self-imposed exile under a cloud of shame — has accepted an invitation to today's service. But so has his estranged son and successor, King Felipe VI, and his wife Queen Letizia. Which all presents more than just a tricky seating arrangement issue for those in charge at Westminster Abbey. Indeed, an eyebrow or two has been raised at the decision to invite Juan Carlos at all, regardless of his status as distant cousin of the late Queen. The 84-year-old former king has spent the past few...

The family was among thousands of volunteers who turned out Saturday for the 38th annual California Coastal Cleanup to pick up trash at beaches, lakes, creeks and rivers across the state.

    A LIGHTNING assault by Ukraine that freed thousands of square miles from Russian occupation has left both sides asking if the blitz could be the tipping point in the war.

The result was Russian generals reinforced their southern front and left their northern flank exposed. But the speed of the Russian collapse in the north has caught...
    (CNN)A few years ago, retired Maine couple George and Cathy Hardy installed their first heat pump inside their 1930s Cape-style house. Then they installed two more -- completely replacing their entire oil-based home heating system that had gotten them through countless sub-zero winters. George, a former engineer, was initially skeptical that heat pumps -- super-efficient electric heating and cooling systems -- could do the same amount of work as oil. But the couple was surprised by how well they perform. The UK will give homeowners $7,000 to buy heat pumps. But what are they?"We couldn't be happier with them," Cathy told CNN. "For me, it's the comfort. For him, it's the efficiency." George, who used to keep a close eye on the thermostat for costs, said that switching from oil to electricity has saved thousands of dollars on heating in the last few years. The cost of heating oil in Maine has steadily risen from around $1 per gallon in 2008 to more than $4.50 per gallon in 2022. "In winter in Maine you're going to burn 150 gallons of...

    THOUSANDS more Brits are set to see the Queen's coffin in its final journey after plans to the route were changed, it has been reported. The hearse carrying Her Majesty from Westminster to Windsor after her funeral on Monday is expected to take the long way around to allow more mourners to pay their respects. 3Thousands more Brits could see the Queen's coffin after plans for its final journey were reportedly changedCredit: Reuters It will reportedly avoid the M4 - the quickest route - and instead stick to A-roads, including the A30 and A4, the Daily Mail reports.

    Cherry Hill, NJ (CNN)High school English teacher Larry Abrams has always considered himself a bookworm. Growing up, he loved visiting used bookstores and reading books that others had enjoyed before him. "I certainly like the transformative experience of reading, of going into other worlds, experiencing other cultures," Abrams said. Abrams started his teaching career in an affluent suburb outside of Philadelphia before moving to a high school in the under-resourced community of Lindenwold, New Jersey."I'd heard of food deserts, but I'd never heard of book deserts. And it occurred to me that I teach in a book desert," Abrams said. "Many of the kids in school simply struggle with reading. In my ninth-grade class it's very typical to have kids reading at a fifth-grade reading level. And if you're struggling with reading, you're going to be struggling with writing."In 2017, when one of his high school seniors told him she wasn't reading to her 2-year-old daughter, Abrams sprung into action. He put out a call to friends and family asking for gently used children's books, and in no time, he...
    Martha's Vineyard authorities have described the arrival of 50 migrants on their affluent island as a 'humanitarian crisis' - despite the median household income being significantly higher than the national average. The declaration came as a lawmaker who previously said that he would 'love' to see the wealthy area turn into a 'haven' for immigrants slammed Governor Ron DeSantis for flying in 50 migrants. 'To our Island community, here is an update on current humanitarian crisis on Martha's Vineyard,' the official account of the tourist board tweeted on Thursday. 'We thank people for their continued help.'  The community issued a statement, saying that they were working on a 'coordinated regional response', and two emergency shelters had been created. 'All activated local Emergency Management will remain in effect as we learn more and anticipate our State partners coordinated response.'  The exclusive enclave is where Barack and Michelle Obama bought their $12 million vacation home in 2019, and where he celebrated his 60th birthday last year. In 2017, John Kerry bought a historic waterfront property in Chilmark for $11.75 million.  Celebrity visitors...
