    Google will keep its employees working from home for at least another full year. Staff at the search giant — who were first sent home in March due to the coronavirus pandemic — are not expected to return in a large capacity until at least July 2021, according to the Wall Street Journal. Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai was reportedly “swayed in part by sympathy for employees with families to plan for uncertain school years that may involve at-home instruction, depending on geography.” Silicon Valley’s tech titans have signaled that working from home may be the new norm moving forward.

    Iran may be preparing for conflict with Israel in Syria and no longer will accept Israeli airstrikes on its warehouses without a response, a report over the weekend suggested. Veteran journalist Elijah Magnier wrote on the website Medium about whether the “great Middle Eastern war will begin in the Levant” and cited Syria as a potential flashpoint. Magnier’s report is interesting because he asserts that according to “private” sources, Iran is evacuating “sites of the gatherings of its advisers, not for withdrawal or for redeployment, but to find bases within the Syrian Army barracks. Hezbollah has taken over the vacated...

    The next time you go to photograph your food, you might want to check the skies. While visiting York, Maine, Alicia Jessop, a sports law professor at Pepperdine University, went to take a picture of the lobster roll she just purchased from Fox’s Lobster House. It had the makings of a classic New England scene: lobster roll in the foreground, Nubble Lighthouse in the background. But a nearby seagull had other ideas. Just as Jessop was taking her photo, the seagull swooped in and stole her lobster roll.

And since then I’ve been back to Germany I think at least ten times. I’ve been...

I’m a bit worried because the last time I was in the Hospital My Intestine ruptured and had Emergency Surgery to Repair that and...

    AP: FBI Sent Hamas Money in Clinton Days JOHN SOLOMON Associated Press WASHINGTON - While President Clinton was trying to broker an elusive peace between Israelis and Palestinians, the FBI was secretly funneling money to suspected Hamas figures to see if the militant group would use it for terrorist attacks, according to interviews and court documents. The counterterrorism operation in 1998 and 1999 was run out of the FBI's Phoenix office in cooperation with Israeli intelligence and was approved by Attorney General Janet Reno, FBI officials told The Associated Press. Several thousand dollars in U.S. money was sent to suspected...

The vice president also announced that the U.S. would halt its funding to United Nations’ efforts to aid persecuted peoples, instead vowing to funnel all future efforts through direct foreign aid.

    One of the many bright spots in the 2016 elections for supporters of the Second Amendment was the defeat of Question 3 in Maine.  The question was portrayed as relatively straightforward.  From ballotpedia: Do you want to require background checks prior to the sale or transfer of firearms between individuals not licensed as firearms dealers, with failure to do so punishable by law, and with some exceptions for family members, hunting, self-defense, lawful competitions, and shooting range activity?[8] Question 3 was more complicated in reality.  It was three full pages long. You may read the entire proposition in a...
