    Buffalo police have released body camera footage of New York State Supreme Court Justice Mark Grisanti shoving an officer after a fight with his neighbor, then invoking his friendship with the mayor and family ties to law enforcement, before successfully avoiding arrest. Police said Grisanti was drunk at the time. Law360 obtained the videos of the police detaining Grisanti and his wife late last week through a Freedom of Information Law request. The profanity-laced footage reveals in detail that the state senator-turned-judge used physical force against police and justified it, repeatedly threatened officers, and touted his political connections. The Grisantis...

    He'd drunk 11 cans of Stella at neighbour's BBQKnife-wielding Craig Winwood has been jailed after threatening to stab police officers during a three-and-a-half hour siege. The 35-year-old had drunk 11 cans of Stella when he locked his partner outside their Norton home - and refused to open the door for police. He threatened to baseball bat anyone who entered the property and brandished a knife. But when police cut a hole in the door the defendant eventually passed two knives through before leaving the property to end the stand-off. Now Winwood - who has 21 previous convictions for 61 offences...

  • Drinking Until You Pass Out Is Linked to Doubled Risk of Dementia, Huge Study Reveals

    It's not advisable, and it's not always safe, but passing out drunk happens sometimes when people over-indulge – having so many drinks their bodies just can't handle it, leading them to sink into bleary unconsciousness. The hangover could be far worse than a sore head the next morning, scientists now report in a new study. A massive review of previous research examining the drinking history of over 130,000 people suggests that getting blind drunk stands to double people's risk of developing dementia later in life. While the associations between excessive alcohol consumption and dementia are well documented, there nonetheless remains...

    Men who lose consciousness after drinking alcohol are up to three times as likely to develop dementia within the next 10 years, according to an analysis published Wednesday by JAMA Network Open. Women who "passed out" after consuming alcohol were more than twice as likely to develop dementia over the next decade, the data showed. Overall, the risk for early-onset dementia -- which develops in people age 65 and younger -- was twice as high among drinkers who "passed out," the researchers said. "Our analysis ... suggests that binge drinking is a long-term dementia risk factor even if a person...

    Aug. 24 (UPI) -- A California man attempting to defend his home from a wildfire said he turned to an unusual source of help when his water was shut off: several cases of Bud Lite beer. Chad Little said he decided to stay behind when his family evacuated their Vacaville home last week as the LNU Lightning Complex Fires approached their neighborhood. Little said he had hoses set up around the house to provide a consistent source of water to keep the flames away from the house, but he started worrying when the water to the area was shut off....

    Last November, Eurostat, the European Union's statistical office, published the results of its most recent Life Satisfaction survey. Residents of each of the EU's member countries were asked to evaluate how satisfied they were with their lives as a whole, using a scale from 0 to 10. In the end, the Finns proved to be the most pleased with ...well, everything, with a final score of 8.1. The results of a new research study from the University of Helsinki and the University of Eastern Finland will probably give Finns something else to be happy about: according to Yle, these scientists...

    My wife & I went to Mass yesterday for the first time in over a month of the churches being shut down. While it was joyful to be back in church, I was initially angry at the procedures and spacing. I noted the bleached out backs and sides of the pews from the repeated wiping. It was distressing to see our priest speaking the word of God through a mask. It was like nothing I have ever seen when he squirted his hands with sanitizer before offering us the Host. Then I thought of Christians around the world, in Iraq,...
  • Prohibition Vs Freedom: Does The Modern World Need To Swing Back To Temperance?

    I believe Douglas MacArthur got it right when he described the nature of freedom in the place of his birth The Wild West of America: “……. nowhere else has there been the savage turbulence, the striking vitality and the raucous glamour of the struggle for law and order in the American West.” Only a few decades later the nation swung the opposite way with the bold experiment of Prohibition. Why did that policy fail? What was good about it? For all my life abstaining from alcohol has been my personal choice. But now, at the age of 63, an old...

The “prank” has taken social-media platform TikTok by storm, with videos of users bedecked as boozehound bubbies — seemingly victorious, bottles in hand — racking up millions of views.

    The University of Kentucky cheerleading team has fired its entire coaching staff after an investigation uncovered incidents of hazing, public nudity and excessive alcohol use among cheerleaders. The university announced the news on Monday in a detailed release. Head coach Jomo Thompson and assistants Ben Head, Spencer Clan and Kelsey LaCroix were all fired. The school also cited “lax oversight and poor judgment” by adviser T. Lynn Williamson, who resigned after the investigation started following four decades with the team. Williamson had been barred from having contact with members of the team.

    Cynthia Covert was waist deep in a pond behind her friend’s home on Kiawah Island clutching a rope as her friends tried to get her away from the alligator that dragged her into the water. As her friends pulled, she calmly said, “I guess I won’t do this again,” according to a supplemental report released Tuesday by the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office. Moments later, the alligator rolled. Covert, 58, went under. The supplemental report provides further details on South Carolina’s third deadly alligator attack in four years. Covert, a Johns Island resident, was on Kiawah doing her friend’s nails, the...
