    Since leaving the White House in January, Michelle Obama has stayed relatively quiet and deprived us of her almost daily power-dressing inspiration. However, the former FLOTUS stepped out in N.Y.C. on Thursday in a vibrant summer sundress that we’re seriously hoping to copy for our next warm-weather event. For a day out in Manhattan, Obama chose a knee-length frock with vertical stripes of shades of blue and green that elongated her frame. She paired the vibrant dress with cat-eye sunglasses, hoop earrings, and nude pointy-toe pumps, keeping her accessories minimal to let her dress take center stage. ADVERTISING Michelle Obama...

    Michelle Obama went as low-key as Melania Trump had gone high-style, choosing to deliver her convention speech in a cobalt-blue silk crepe A-line dress with cap sleeves. The dress, custom-made by New York-based designer Christian Siriano, who shot to fame after winning the fourth season of “Project Runway” in 2008, fell to just below the knee and was paired with a pair of metallic heels that industry trade publication Footwear News identifies as Jimmy Choo pumps.
  • There’s no Trump without Palin: Meghan McCain scolds conservatives for backing Trump

    05/06/2016 11:35:22 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 125 replies
    Donald Trump’s coronation as the GOP nominee will present plenty of opportunities for Republican amnesia and short-sightedness. The easiest thing to do, if you’re a conservative Republican, is to dismiss Trump as an aberration, as if his candidacy emerged out of a whirlwind. But that’s the work of revisionist historians, not honest observers of the last decade of Republican politics. Consider this recent tweet by Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain and now a commentator for Fox News: I hope history remembers those who gave up their conservative principles for the cult of personality and celebrity. And those who...

    A small-town Alabama high school cheerleading coach was arrested on Tuesday on charges that she had a sexual relationship with a male student. The teacher is Katherine Nelson, reports The Birmingham News. Nelson, 29, is an English teacher at Brookwood High School in Brookwood, Ala. (pop: 1,828), just east of Tuscaloosa. She also coaches cheerleading and golf, and directs musical theater. The charge against the married teacher is engaging in a sex act with a student under the age of 19 (while also a school employee). Investigators say the sex occurred back during the 2012-2013 school year. The age of...

    Firefighters in Britain said two crews responded to a report of a cow with its head stuck in a garden chair. Northamptonshire Fire & Rescue tweeted a picture showing the cow with its head trapped in a plastic lawn chair about 7:50 a.m. Thursday. The tweet said crews from Mounts and Wellingborough responded to the address in Boughton, England, to attempt to assist the boggled bovine. The fire department said the cow managed to "self-release" from its predicament, but not before firefighters snapped a picture of the cow wearing its unusual headgear.

    DEKALB, TX (KSLA) - Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moo: A DeKalb, TX cow has managed the extremely rare feat of giving birth to 4 live calves. The black calves, 3 bulls and a heifer, were born to the cow owned by Dora Rumsey-Barling and her husband, Jimmy. The cow, described by Dora as "just a run of the mill red cow," had been bred to an Angus bull, so all 4 of the calves are black. “We didn't think she was due, even for one calf,” Dora says. Buzzards spotted circling over their 100-acre property in the Hubbard community south of...

    Okay. Doesn't fall under "Breaking News" but, I don't post articles very often. So, I drop off my Alki friend so he can do some walk in/walk out bail thing at the Sheriffs Department. I'm bored and spy a Thai restaurant across the street. At first my thoughts were just about some delish lemongrass soup. So I walk in and order their lemongrass soup. But, they offered a twist I hadn't been offered at othe Thai restaurants "You want regular or spicy?". "Huh? Why I'll take spicy. I love spicy anything" I responded Well, they tried to talk me out...

    So, I'm flipping through channels on the 80" tele and I see these bikers roll up on a house and unload their .45's into a house. Looking like they are merely sauntering as the homies in the house come chasing after them in Impala's. I yell at the TV "Thatz juzt stoopit. You go any slower and a blacktop machine is gonna speed past you. So they let the homies crawl after them, into a modern valley and death trap, using industrial buildings to box them in and a cavalry of other bikers suddenly surround the Impala ridin Homies.

    State transportation officials are refuting rancher Cliven Bundy’s claim that they are ultimately responsible for keeping his cattle off Interstate 15 in northeastern Clark County. In a statement Thursday, Mary Martini, district engineer for the Nevada Department of Transportation in Las Vegas, said that while the state maintains the fences along I-15 to “designate the right of way” and control access, “it is always the responsibility and liability of the owners to control their animals.” The dispute could be headed for court. Bundy was sued for negligence this week by a 34-year-old Las Vegas woman injured when her car hit...

    Animals, especially cows, have been traditionally considered sacred in the Hindu culture and have symbolic significance as the vehicle of gods. They are believed to have great connection with the gods and occupy great importance in Indian myths, with some temples devoted just for their worship. Cows have always remained at the top of the holy animal hierarchy and are respected as "Go matha" or mother cow, who fulfills all the needs of her children; a gift of the gods. 'Gopujas' are also performed in various parts of India during festival seasons to worship cows. Recently, with an additional eye...

    The 21st-century back-to-the-farm movement stems from our yearning to escape the artificiality of modern urban life. Yet the domesticated plants and animals now found in most gardens and farms are themselves artificial, the results of extensive human meddling, cross-breeding and genetic manipulation. Mankind began engineering what we now call “farm animals,” including cattle, all the way back in the Neolithic period, between 10,000 and 5,000 B.C. Try as you might, you won’t find an untamed Jersey cow that originated naturally in the wild, because no such thing exists — just like there’s no such thing as a wild labradoodle. Cattle...

    MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) -- Police in Mount Vernon, Washington, killed an agitated Angus cow that rampaged through town, tossing a police officer into the air and tap-dancing on a patrol car. The Skagit Valley Herald reports (http://is.gd/dm29HB) that police spokeswoman Shannon Haigh says the cow apparently escaped from a farm outside the city limits. It was first reported in a Wal-Mart parking lot last Friday.

    A feral pig ransacked a campsite and drank at least 18 cans cans of beer before getting into an altercation with a cow in Australia. The incident, which happened in a remote area of Western Australia at the DeGray River rest area, prompted officials to warn campers to keep their food and alcohol secure. The wild pig was seen around the campsite for several days last week, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) reported, citing officials who said the animal got into multiple six-packs of beer over the course of a few days. Fionna Findley, from the government highway division Main...

    A wild boar in Australia caused a ruckus in a campsite when the swine stole and drank 18 beers from a camper. The pig then got the drunk munchies and rooted around various campsites for food, the Metro reports. The pig apparently then decided to pick a fight with a nearby cow, however the fight didn’t turn out the way he probably imagined it would. A camper said, “There were some other people camped right on the river and they saw him being chased around their vehicle by a cow.” Authorities searched for the boar only to find him passed...

    Joao Maria de Souza, 45, had been in bed with his wife Leni when the animal fell through the ceiling of their home in Caratinga, southeast Brazil. The cow is believed to have escaped from a nearby farm and climbed onto the roof of the couple's house, which backs onto a steep hill on Wednesday night. The corrugated roof immediately gave way and the one-and-a-half-ton animal fell eight feet onto Mr de Souza's side of the bed. His wife, and the cow, both reportedly escaped unharmed. Rescuers took Mr de Souza to hospital with a fractured left leg but no...
