    Somehow my and my 11-year old son's gmail was spoofed, meaning someone is able to send messages out using our gmail accounts. The spoofed emails show up in my sent folder. We changed our Google account passwords. But I am still studying what else to do; not confident I understand how it happened, not confident I've done what needs to be done. My son plays on Xbox Live and I don't know what goes on there but he's smart enough to not give out personal info. I have a 2-step verification process enabled. Here's one of the spoofed messages (I...
  • RUSSIA'S WARNING: Putin tells students living in UK – 'Come home IMMEDIATELY'

    04/21/2018 9:09:55 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 6 replies ^ | Fri, Apr 20, 2018 | Will Stewart
    The threat of security problems and “provocations” in the wake of the Skripals' poisoning means they should flee now and move to the “wild east” of Russia. A campaign aimed at bringing home young people studying in the UK and other Western countries has been launched by an official group representing former Soviet states. They are told that there are excellent opportunities in the far east of Siberia instead of London - but the plan has been mocked on social media. In recent years some of Russia’s brightest students, as well as high-flying financial and technological graduates, have gravitated to...

    ISTANBUL (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan said the United States should look at its own actions if it wants the return of an American Christian pastor who has been jailed in Turkey for suspected links to a 2016 failed coup. Erdogan made the comment in a live interview with broadcaster NTV. Andrew Brunson, who has lived in Turkey for more than two decades, was indicted on charges of helping the group that Ankara holds responsible for the failed coup against Erdogan. He faces up to 35 years in prison. Brunson denies the charges.

    This is how you get rid of ants | 4/21/18
    It's the beginning of spring and this is when ants try to get into the houses. Not sure why now and not middle of winter when it is cold. Stepping on them and killing them when you see them makes you feel good for a minute or two but it does not solve the overall ant problem. For there are THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of ants from where they came from, all intent on servicing the QUEEN at all costs. Normally I just tolerate the springtime ants, content to step on them when I see them and flush their dead...

    If you ever have wanted to see the Dead Sea Scrolls but have not been able to travel to the Middle East, this may be your chance. Select Dead Sea Scrolls are on display at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science in Denver, Colorado, from March 16 to September 3, 2018. Perhaps the most significant archaeological discovery of the 20th century, the Dead Sea Scrolls represent the earliest extant copies of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament). In addition to Biblical texts, the scrolls contain numerous texts, such as the War Scroll (Scroll 1QM), penned by a sectarian community.

    For more than a decade, we – Europeans, Americans, and the international community – have feared the imminent threat of a nuclear-armed Iran. To counter this threat and make the Middle East a safer place, the international community came together, using the might of diplomatic negotiations and the force of sanctions, agreed by most of the major economic powers. After 13 years of joint diplomatic effort, we reached a major breakthrough and signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), an agreement between Iran, France, the UK, Germany, the US, China, and Russia, regarding Tehran‘s nuclear programme. With that, we...

    Mitt Romney did not win the Utah Republican Party's nomination on Saturday, meaning he must compete in a June primary election as he seeks to replace retiring US Sen. Orrin Hatch. After a wild and raucous day of voting at the Utah GOP convention, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee was unable to win the 60% that he needed to head to the November ballot unopposed. When none of the 12 candidates were able to cross that threshold, the party continued with successive rounds of caucus voting until one candidate reached 40%. On the second round of...

    El Paso, Texas – An 11 year old Texas middle school student was hit and killed today during the time of the National Walkout when he tried to cross the freeway – Loop 375 in northeast El Paso. Though he was not actually participating in the walkout, he and another group of 12-15 students jumped the wall and left the campus during the walkout. It was a fatal mistake. The students from Parkland Middle School took advantage of the National Walkout Day today to sneak off and do their own thing. Though a staff member was posted at the front...
  • Quick Hits: Towers, Portland, Stanton, Draft

    The effort to bring a MLB team to Portland appears to be growing in seriousness, as Gordon Friedman of The Oregonian recently reported. Portland Diamond Project, the entity spearheading the effort, has submitted bids on two parcels that could potentially house 32,000-seat ballparks. Clearly, there’s still a long ways to go before anybody will be watching a major-league contest in Portland, but it’ll certainly be interesting to see whether that municipality (and a few others) end up as serious suitors for existing or expansion franchises.

    Wow, sonic technology to clean our teeth! That's what we have now, and it makes it easy to have cleaner, whiter teeth and healthier gums. The sonic technology drives the bristle tip velocity so that fluids can clean into tight spaces and the gum line. Healthy gums translate to a healthier heart. The toothbrush has come a long way. But what did people use thousands of years ago before electricity or nylon was invented? Well the first toothbrush was no doubt the human finger. It is recorded that people used salt, chalk or soot and rubbed it on their teeth...
  • Youth violence will bring a summer of carnage, warns surgeon Martin Griffiths

    The Sunday Times ^ | 21 Apr, 2018 | Lucy Bannerman
    A leading trauma surgeon has predicted a summer of “carnage” if alarming rates of youth violence continue across the capital. Martin Griffiths said that treating children with knife and gunshot wounds had become “the bread and butter” of his work at the Royal London Hospital in east London. He said that the warmer weather would further inflame violence among young Londoners and that the severity and frequency of attacks had reached a level he would expect in South Africa or the US. A rise in violent crime across London has left more than 60 people dead from stabbings and shootings...

It does not include atheism or no religion, and only shows pluralities, meaning the group shown may not be an absolute majority in the county. The county-level data shows intriguing patterns across the US.

Do California’s taxpayers know that they’re 'subsidizing' America-hating, anti-Second Amendment, pro-abortion, corrupt and debauched Hollywood the tune of $330 million a year?
