    Chicago is said to be the rat capital of America. The city is expected to break last year’s record for the number of rat complaints. “Walking to the subway after work, I looked down and there was a rat walking alongside me,” said a trained journalist not given to exaggeration. “It was gigantic, like a small dog or a fat squirrel. It just walked along without fear.” But don’t worry, Chicago. I’ve got a guy. And I hope Mayor Rahm Emanuel is listening. Jordan Reed, the legendary American rat catcher, is known far and wide in the rat-hunting community for...

    Panda Express has reached a settlement agreement with the U.S. Justice Department to resolve an investigation into whether the restaurant discriminated against non-U.S. citizens when reverifying their permission to work. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the investigation concluded that Pandra Express required lawful permanent resident workers to re-establish their work authorization when their green cards expired yet made no such requests to U.S. workers when their work verification documents expired. Under the agreement, Panda Express will pay a civil penalty of $400,000 and establish a $200,000 back pay fund to compensate workers who lost employment due to the company’s...

    http://www.news.com.au/travel/travel-WE DON’T mean to ruin your next holiday but there could be something lurking in your hotel room. Apparently vermin love staying in hotels too. That’s right, we’re talking mice scurrying down the halls, roaches snacking at the continental breakfast and ants climbing on the kitchenette. According to a study conducted by Amerisleep, which looked at 8,000 reports from inspectors from over 3,400 hotels, motels and inns in Florida in 2015 and 2016, more than one in ten (12 per cent) of hotels, motels, and inns have had a vermin problem, the New York Post reports. Vermin violations make up...

    The 2 sisters arrested in the hateful Facebook Live video torture have a history of theft and violence. Brittany Covington -- the woman who narrated the despicable incident -- was busted in October for stealing liquor from a Chicago CVS. She and friends stole a bottle of Jack Daniels, 2 bottles of brandy and a bottle of Mike's Hard Lemonade. Covington caught a break when the complaining witness -- a store clerk -- was a no-show in court so the case was shelved. We're told prosecutors have 4 months to refile and get the complaining witness on board. As the...

    The New York Times ^ | 3/29/2016 | ANDREW E. KRAMER
    MOSCOW — Donald J. Trump, the leading Republican presidential candidate, was widely condemned when he called for the United States to “take out the families” of terrorists. His approach — even after he clarified that he was not talking about killing the relatives — was dismissed by many as immoral and unlawful. Yet, it is the very tactic that Russia has pursued for decades. It is the signature, though officially unacknowledged, policy behind Moscow’s counterinsurgency and counterterrorism strategies, and Russia’s actions in smashing a Muslim separatist rebellion in the Caucasus provide a laboratory for testing Mr. Trump’s ideas. The family...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) tore into GOP front-runner Donald Trump on Monday, calling the businessman a "loser" and a threat to America. "Just because [Trump] is a loser everywhere else doesn’t mean he’ll lose this election," Warren added on Twitter. She said Trump "knows he’s a loser. His insecurities are on parade: petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism, flagrant narcissism." Her comments come as Democrats are stepping up their criticism of Trump and pushing GOP leadership and vulnerable lawmakers to denounce him. Republicans have been wary of completely cutting ties with the businessman and his supporters, whom they will...
