Acting homeland security secretary Kevin McAleenan acknowledged Sunday that the Trump administration had considered sending migrants from Texas to Florida but ultimately decided not to because it wouldn't have been "an effective use of resources." The statement by McAleenan follows an outcry from Florida officials late last week in response to the administration's plans.
Egg whites are universally accepted as a healthy source of protein. But because they come from chickens, one could worry about animal welfare, the environmental damage wrought by industrial poultry and even Salmonella-since the Food and Drug Administration estimates that 79,000 Americans are sickened by tainted eggs every year. Or maybe you're just a vegetarian. Regardless, the way to solve all of these problems is to just make "eggs" from plants.
Alabama has created the nation's strictest abortion ban, the latest attempt to prompt the Supreme Court to reconsider Roe v. Wade. Gov. Kay Ivey, R, signed the bill that makes performing virtually all abortions a crime. Many other states have passed laws this year to limit abortion or even try to ban it altogether in the hope that the Supreme Court with President Donald Trump's two appointees will be more likely to approve them. Most of the new restrictions are in the South and Midwest.
Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared completely unaffected after a man surprised a gym full of people with a flying, two-footed drop kick to the former California governor's back during a public appearance Saturday near Johannesburg. Schwarzenegger, 71, was recording a Snapchat video with fans as part of his annual Arnold Classic Africa event when the unidentified assailant ran toward him and threw himself feet-first at the Terminator.
The children's home was a must-stop destination for the powerful. In the 1960s, first lady Jackie Kennedy, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., and Vice President Hubert Humphrey were just a few of the important figures to pay visits to Junior Village, Washington's renowned refuge for impoverished children. Lady Bird Johnson and Pat Nixon sponsored Christmas and Thanksgiving parties at the White House for handpicked Junior Village children, according to The Washington Post.
As Iran girds for possible war with the United States, President Donald Trump may turn out to be the best friend it has. Despite the saber-rattling of senior aides and Trump's own tweets, when push has come to shove over the past two years, the president has repeatedly backed away from the threatened use of military force.
In the fall of 2017, Clare Winter, a single mother of two in Charlottesville, Virginia, thought she had done everything an outraged citizen was supposed to do. She'd marched in protests, called her congressman's office, joined Indivisible meetups. But she also felt like she was getting "absolutely nowhere."
The ongoing, record-high influx of migrant families crossing into the United States along its southern border has strained U.S. Border Patrol resources so far beyond capacity that, for the first time, the Trump administration's border crisis is spilling out into America's interior. A senior official at U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said Friday that federal officials are in the process of identifying locations hundreds of miles from the border that have the capacity to take on some of the arriving migrants, but said no location has been finalized.
An Ohio State team doctor sexually abused at least 177 male students from 1979 to 1996, and school officials failed to take appropriate action despite being aware of numerous reports of the physician's misconduct over the 17-year period, according to an investigative report released Friday. The abuse included athletes from at least 15 sports and also encompassed other students who saw physician Richard Strauss at the school's student health center and an off-campus clinic.
RICHMOND, Va. — When Mary Gregory filled out the registration form to compete in a local weightlifting event, she checked the box that read "female" without hesitation. "I mean, that's my gender," she said "I didn't even think about it. That's who I am." If any eyebrows were raised, Gregory didn't notice, and on April 27, after months of training, she strode onto the platform at the Best Western hotel just east of Charlottesville, Virginia, and wowed the spectators and fellow powerlifters in attendance.
