We are seeing a trend of people filming law enforcement - often referred to as a ''First Amendment audit'' - which is then posted online. During these ''audits,'' people film police buildings and officers. Once contacted, they can become aggressive and challenging and often seek to be detained by law enforcement while they are filming so they can post the video of the encounter online. When our state and federal governments allow criminals and foreign nations to injure with impunity their own law-abiding citizens, is it any wonder the civilized world we once knew has vanished – replaced by the Hobbesian rule of the wild? One of the most famous songs of all time references a dark desert highway. The Eagles made rock and roll history when they released Hotel California in the late 1970s. Intrigued by its cryptic lyrics, fans speculated about Hotel California’s meaning for decades.
Dogs have been man's best friend for at least the past 15,000 years, and science now shows that this symbiotic relationship has been as beneficial for humans as their canine companions.

The Apology of Socrates, is a philosophical dialogue written by the Greek philosopher Plato chronicling the trial of his mentor Socrates in 399 BCE. After finding Socrates guilty of impiety and corrupting the youth, the Athenian jury sentenced him to death. Socrates carried out his own execution by drinking a mixture of poisonous hemlock. On December 21, 1866, an Indian war party attacked on a wagon train returning to Fort Phil Kearney. Captain Fetterman and 80 calvarymen went out to help, but were decoyed by a party of warriors northward and into a rehearsed ambush planned by Chief Red Cloud. In half an hour, the Indian warriors annihilated the force to the last man. How the downfall of one intelligence agent revealed the astonishing depth of Chinese industrial espionage. Operation Mockingbird was an alleged CIA project that recruited journalists to write fake stories promoting government ideas while dispelling communist ones.
Water, in its different forms, have been deemed as synonymous to life. Distilled water is a type of water, which is created using a special process called distillation. To explain in simple words, it is a method where pure H20 is collected by removing the impurities such as metals and minerals out. During the Cold War, the United States Military conducted secret experiments in Corpus Christi, TX and St Louis Missouri. Documents show how the US Army sprayed zinc cadmium sulfide on unsuspecting low income communities, lying to city officials at the time, saying they were testing a smoke screen in case of an attack by the Soviet Union. The stereotype of the grumpy old man could have its roots in a condition known as irritable male syndrome. It’s clinically referred to as andropause, or male menopause. Like female menopause, andropause includes physical and emotional changes that also seem dependent on changes in hormone levels.
Food product dating, as the U.S. Department of Agriculture calls it, is completely voluntary for all products (with the exception of baby food). Not only that, but it has nothing to do with safety. It acts solely as the manufacturer's best guess as to when its product will no longer be at peak quality. Food manufacturers also tend to be rather conservative with those dates. In the 1830s, the enslavement of Blacks was established in the Indian Territory, the region that would become Oklahoma. By the late 19th century, when over half a million Africans were enslaved in the South, the southern Native American societies of that region had come to include both enslaved Blacks and small numbers of free Black people. A Florida man has died after he contracted a rare but often deadly infection after he used tap water to rinse out his sinuses, spurring public health concerns about the safety of drinking water. Naegleria Fowleri is a microscopic single-celled living amoeba. Infection is RARE and can only happen when water contaminated with amoebae enters the body through the nose. You CANNOT be infected by drinking tap water.  Franking privilege is a particular privilege that members of Congress and certain other select groups of people have that allows them to send mail free of charge through the United States Postal Service. The history of franking privilege dates back centuries and the practice still exists today, although reforms have been made over the years.
Con artists are using dating apps to prey on lonely people, and older ones are a growing target. In a pattern that accelerated during the isolation of the coronavirus pandemic, romance scams claimed $139 million from adults age 60 and older in 2020, according to data from the Federal Trade Commission, up from $84 million the year before. For some home cooks, the slow cooker is the fairy godmother of kitchen appliances. Toss a few ingredients into the crock (maybe sear the meat or sauté some veg, if you like), set the timer, go about your day and, when you come home, ta-da! Grey's serialized novel, published in Ladies' Home Journal in 1922-1923, was one of the first pieces of literature produced which offered a harsh portrayal of American government agencies towards Native Americans. Grey depicted the white settlers as missionaries who preyed upon the subordinate race, forcefully converting them into Christianity and altering their way of life. This depiction sparked a lot of backlash in the form of angry letters from readers once the novels were published. The experiences of Pilot Teresa James exemplify the dedicated service of WASP women in World War II.
Ocean liners might not be the quickest way to get from one place to another, but they've often been the most luxurious. This is no accident. These luxury vessels were designed to be so impressive the passengers would forget they were crossing an ocean. Amy Wax and free speech groups say the university is trampling on her academic freedom. Students ask whether her speech deserves to be protected. Few structures represent the United States as powerfully as the Washington Monument. At the center of Washington, D.C., the impressive marble obelisk (555 feet tall and 55 feet wide) pays grand tribute to the first U.S. president, George Washington. It stars in tourist selfies, postcards, and nearly every movie filmed in the U.S. capital.
A stunning, long-overlooked Nixon Watergate-era tape shows Richard Nixon warning CIA Director Richard Helms that he knows of CIA involvement in the murder of John F. Kennedy- ''I know who shot John.'' Alerted to the imminent arrival of hostile U-boats along the U.S. East Coast in early January 1942, the U.S. Navy had enough warships at hand to thwart the German offensive—but instead chose to do nothing.
It was 1980 and Jimmy Carter was in the White House, bedeviled by a hostage crisis in Iran that had paralyzed his presidency and hampered his effort to win a second term. Mr. Carter’s best chance for victory was to free the 52 Americans held captive before Election Day. That was something that Mr. Barnes said his mentor was determined to prevent. The fractured relationship between a father and a son, from birth through adulthood is told verse by verse through Harry Chapin's 1974 folk tale ''Cats in the Cradle.'' Topping the charts when it was first released, and Chapin's sole No. 1 hit, ''Cats in the Cradle'' has remained a folk-rock classic for five decades and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2011. When the Green Berets needed insight on the Middle East, they turned to one of the U.S. Army's own: Sergeant Ali Mohamed. When Osama bin Laden wanted help training troops and raising money for his al-Qaida terrorist network, he enlisted the same man, known as ''Abu Mohamed ali Amriki,''or ''Mohamed the American.'' Speechwriters have been part of the presidential entourage since Franklin Delano Roosevelt. All presidents have all had aides valued for their phrasemaking skills and their rapport with the boss, they are phantom presences, sensed but never seen. Many years ago, Ted Kennedy, the Democratic Senator from Massachusetts, delivered a particularly powerful speech and afterwards, a newspaper man asked if he could take a photo of the Senator with the young man on his staff that wrote it. Kennedy refused.

Photo Shop is my best friend. I always wanted to be a reporter on that show.

LIFE Magazine was the treasured photographic magazine that chronicled the 20th Century. When I get inspired every once in a while, no subject seems out of bounds, something from current events, or reminiscing about the past when life wasn't really all that simple, but we like to remember it that way. Not as bushy in 2023 but I still have that shirt. Ron Howes in Winter
