Planned Parenthood president: What gives me hope

(CNN)On Thursday, the Supreme Court temporarily blocked a Louisiana law that would require a doctor to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the facility where she performs an abortion. That appears to be President Donald Trump’s goal. I sat in the balcony of the House chamber during last week’s State of the Union address, angry and disgusted as he called for Congress to pass laws restricting safe, legal abortion and criticized state legislation that seeks to protect access to health care. He doubled down at a campaign rally Monday night where he continued lying to the American people, scaring viewers, and shaming women and their families. I won’t repeat what he said because it’s deliberately misleading …

Chris Evans Asks Trump 1 Blunt Question About His Base

may be done playing “Captain America.”  Evans, who in recent months has not been shy about using his public profile to criticize Trump, asked why the president continued to confuse weather with climate, “despite literally everyone explaining it to you every time you tweet this ignorance.” Trump revived his “Pocahontas” slur against the Democratic presidential hopeful. Many people also interpreted his use of the term “TRAIL” to be a mocking reference to the historic government-forced relocation of Native Americans called the “Trail of Tears.” Evans said that by Hume’s logic, Trump’s “ignorance has become normalized/expected.” RELATED… Trump Fan Launches 'Incredibly Violent Attack' On BBC Cameraman At El Paso Rally John Oliver Gets Booed By Colbert's Audience Over Trump Prediction Harrison …

Happy Valentine’s Day … or is it?

“But it wasn’t my name, it said someone else’s.” Image copyright Getty Images Polly, who is now training to be a teacher, said the woman told her that she was the girlfriend of Polly’s boyfriend. “I said, ‘no, I’m his girlfriend’,” said Polly, who confronted and broke up with him later on, when he turned up armed with Valentine’s Day gifts. “I said, you can take them,” she said, adding that she knows her more romantic Valentine’s Days are to come. ‘I caught him with another woman’ Meanwhile, Helen from Walsall recalled catching her then-boyfriend of 18 months leaving a hotel with another woman, just hours before they were due to go for a Valentine’s Day dinner. “I’d gone into …

Border Towns ‘Safer Than Any City Trump Has Lived,’ Says Texas Congressman

Donald Trump’s fake narrative that U.S. border towns are lawless frontiers, declaring that they’re in fact “safer than any city the president has ever lived in.” McAllen, Texas (population 145,000), in Gonzalez’s district didn’t have a single homicide last year, the congressman pointed out in an interview Saturday on MSNBC. He added: “I can assure you McAllen is safer than any city the president has ever lived in. It’s much safer than New York City, it’s much safer than Washington, D.C. I could walk around the middle of the night in the city of McAllen without a single threat … this campaign rhetoric that has continued for two years really needs to stop. People need to look at FBI stats and …

Fighting climate change may be easier than we think

(CNN)With the plethora of dispiriting reports on climate change — we recently learned, for instance, that our oceans are warming at least 40% faster than the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change originally thought — many elected officials have taken up the mantle of fighting global warming. Take the United States as an example. Wind and solar power are now on average the least expensive ways of generating electricity. In some locations, wind and solar energy prices are as little as one-third the cost of coal. Even without including the contribution of coal to global warming, it is simply no longer a cost-effective energy source. Wind and solar are now economically sounder investments. But what about the unreliability of renewable energy …

Cardi B Deleted Her Instagram Because People Are The Worst

After suffering sitting through five hours of Grammys coverage on Sunday night, I swore I wouldn’t devote any more mental energy to them, but here we are. The fallout surrounding the Grammys and the hip-hop community is continuing in a really unfortunate way. Cardi B’s win for Best Rap Album was historic, as she’s the first solo woman ever to win that category. But wherever you can find a woman making history, you can always find a bunch of butt-hurt dudes trying to tear her down. Cardi B deleted her Instagram last night because clearly the haters got to her. In the past couple of years, celebrities have gotten quicker and quicker to deactivate their social media accounts at the …

Is Justin Bieber And Hailey Baldwin’s Marriage Doomed? Betches

As a creative writing major, I will start my critique with one positive comment, as you do: Hailey looks stunning on the cover in a white Prada dress and Tiffany & Co jewelry. That’s the only nice thing I have to say because everything else about the cover is pretty horrific, not limited to Justin’s creepy drug dealer smirk. View this post on Instagram But I’m not here to provide an art critique. I got the sense that the article wants me to conclude that Justin and Hailey are perfect for each other, despite what tradition and/or common sense may lead many to believe. Maybe I’m just cynical, but my reading experience was a little different. As the girl sitting at the …

Does CBD Work? We Tried A Bunch Of CBD Products Betches

Okay, so I battle chronic Lyme disease and anxiety on the daily. I also train Brazilian jiu-jitsu 3-4 days/week. What I’m trying to say here is that I’m basically an ideal candidate for CBD because I’m always broken and hurting. Beauty/Skin Care whoAs someone with eczema and super sensitive skin, trying any form of beauty or skin care product on my face or body (aside from my tried-and-true usuals) has always scared me. I tried and on Sunday night after I showered and found out for myself.   I pumped a glob onto my finger and wiped what I thought was a respectable amount of serum underneath and around my eyes. I had some extra serum left over, so I …

Reality Check: Thefts of catalytic converters

Trade association the British Metals Recycling Association has said stretched resources mean the police are unlikely to prosecute scrap dealers operating illegally and are more likely to encourage them to apply for licences retrospectively. Indeed, it is not unusual to see advertisements for illegal scrap metal dealers offering cash for scrap. The Met suggests worried car-owners take steps to make their vehicles less vulnerable, such as: A serial number could be engraved on the catalytic converter to make it easier to trace and harder to sell at a reputable dealer If the converter is bolted on, it may be possible to weld the bolts shut, although that would deter only thieves working with just a spanner Protective coverings are available …

El Nio Has Returned But It’s Quite A Weak One

Researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) say that the conditions in the tropical Pacific now qualify to be considered El Niño. The phenomenon refers to warmer waters around the central Pacific, which influence the weather conditions of many countries along the ocean. The NOAA announcement comes after atmospheric conditions shifted. For the region to be experiencing El Niño, three things need to happen: the surface of the ocean needs to be more than 0.5°C above the long-term average, this temperature needs to hold up for several seasons, and finally, the Walker atmospheric circulation needs to diminish. This means more rains need to happen over the central Pacific than in South-East Asia. In the past month, researchers saw these changes …

The problem isn’t Meghan Markle. It’s the British monarchy

(CNN)Did you read the story about Meghan Markle demanding synthetic air freshener in a 14th century royal chapel? Or the one about her making Kate Middleton cry? Maybe you saw the tabloid report that she gave out weed at her first wedding or even enjoyed the unsourced conspiracy theories on social media that claim she’s the latest celebrity to fake a pregnancy? The problem isn’t Meghan Markle. It’s that royalty is an unsustainable institution in the 21st century. American fans, some of them devotees since her “Suits” days, have a very different relationship with Meghan than even her most supportive British fans. By definition: It’s a different legal relationship. Our taxes pay for her life. When we meet her, we’re …

The “Zombie Deer Virus” Has Hit 24 US States

The so-called “zombie disease” has been reported in deer, elk, and moose across 24 US states, according to a new warning by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As of January 2019, at least 251 counties across the US, from northern Montana to southern Texas, have reported CWD in free-ranging cervids, members of the deer family. Farther afield, there are similar concerns for reindeer in Norway, Finland, and, to a lesser extent, South Korea. Scientifically known as chronic wasting disease (CWD), the contagious neurological disease gets its sensational nickname because of its effect on the brain of cervids, including North American elk or wapiti, red deer, mule deer, black-tailed deer, white-tailed deer, sika deer, reindeer, and moose. Deer that have …
