    The tragic case of Jazmine Barnes has relit the fires of racial animosity thanks to the media and the investigating law enforcement on the case. Jazmine’s mother and other witnesses identified a white man as the culprit and the sheriff’s department immediately released the details and sketches. Professional outrage activist Shaun King wasted no time in crying racism and stirring up animosity under the guise of fighting race-based crime. Days later it was discovered that Jazmine’s killer wasn’t white but a black man - perhaps two. In the chaos of the incident people had identified a man they saw speeding...

    Breathing, as we all know, is vital for us – it’s the one thing that we know how to do, to perform, even since we are given birth. And, for our entire lives, we just breathe in, without putting much thought into it. As a matter of fact, until someone describes to us how breathing actually works, we never fully realize that we are breathing in and out – it is just one of those innate actions that we do every single day. However, breathing can serve many other purposes than just keeping us alive. For example, martial arts fighters...

    A security camera from a nearby business spied the unidentified gunman cruising south along the feeder road near Wallisville Road on Sunday morning. He seemingly targeted the girl’s family — her mother and three siblings, ages 6, 13 and 15 — at random during their shopping trip, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said during a news conference Monday. The family never made it to the store, Gonzalez said. As far as investigators know, the family did nothing to spark the gunman’s ire and he made no attempt to communicate before opening fire around 6:50 a.m. from the next lane over....

    Hours pass, and in the fading light you glass across the sage into the glare of the sun. Catching some movement your eyes focus on an ear flick; low and behold it’s a shooter buck. He’s far, but your heart is soaring with the hopes of success as you range him before he feeds out of view into the dark timber just a couple dozen yards away. At 460 yards, your .300 WSM is more than capable, but you can't lay down in the high sage, and the only shooting support you have is your pack and a set of...
