    A jilted mother-of-three whose partner ran off with a Ukrainian refugee has shared her anger after she let the woman into her home. Lorna Garnett says she was left heartbroken after her partner of ten years decided to leave her for Sofiia Karkadym just ten days after she moved into their hours after fleeing war-torn Ukraine. Tony Garnett, 29, a security guard, who lives in Bradford, West Yorkshire, said he has fallen in love with the 22-year-old and wants to spend the rest of his life with her.  Sofiia, who fled the city of Lviv in western Ukraine, said she 'fancied' Tony as soon as she saw him and that the pair are living their very own 'love story'. But, speaking to the Sun on Sunday, Lorna said she believes Sofiia 'set her sights on Anthony from the start, decided she wanted him and she took him'. She added: 'She didn't care about the devastation that was left behind. Everything I knew has been turned on its head in the space of two weeks.' Jilted mother Lorna Garnett whose partner...
    An M270 MLRS rocket artillery system. Each one of those rockets carries 644 cluster munitions. No no no no no. Another weapon high on Ukraine's shopping list are Multiple Rocket Launch Systems (MLRS) such as the M270 made by Lockheed Martin which can strike a target 70 or more kilometers away, a three-fold increase over many of their current howitzer rounds [...] The two U.S. officials said the M270 or similar system like the M142 HIMARS would be considered for shipment to Ukraine once Congress passed a $40 billion supplemental funding bill that would authorize an additional $11 billion worth of Presidential Drawdown Authority. I have no first-hand experience with the relatively new HIMARS, but the M270 MLRS? I spent three years doing fire direction for an M270 MLRS battery, and I can’t imagine a worst idea than sending them those pieces of junk.  M270 MLRS, in action To be clear, militarily, M270s are deadly systems, able to obliterate a football-field-sized grid of land with a single volley of its 12 missiles. It was nicknamed the “Grid Square Removal System.” A...
    Tomatoes are not only my favorite backyard crop, they’re also the most popular among American home gardeners. And it’s no wonder: Have you ever compared a supermarket tomato to a backyard one? The homegrown scent alone will transport you straight to summer. Another benefit of growing your own tomatoes is variety. Seeds for yellow, black, pear-shaped and even giant tomatoes — which you won’t typically find in the produce aisle — are readily available in catalogs and many garden centers. And since my tomatoes-of-choice are large and lumpy, that’s typically how I roll. I’m so enamored with them that while writing a garden column for Newsday in New York, I created and for 13 years hosted The Great Long Island Tomato Challenge, a gathering of fellow tomatophiles in search of the biggest fruit of the season (yes, tomatoes are technically fruits). Over the years, I came face-to-face with many beautiful, sweetly scented, giant tomatoes, including a 5 pound, 4 ounce beauty that was the largest ever entered into the competition, not to mention heavier than some newborn humans. I also...
    A Reseda man who pleaded guilty to trafficking firearms he took from self-storage units in Southern California was sentenced to nearly 10 years in federal prison. Rick Eric Herst, 36, pleaded guilty in February 2021 to one count of conspiracy to traffic in firearms and one count of selling firearms to a convicted felon, federal prosecutors said in a release. He was sentenced Wednesday to 115 months in prison. The charges stemmed from an investigation into Herst and two other men, Jeffrey James LaFraniere, 39, of Van Nuys and Alan Elperin, 31, of Mission Hills, who burglarized self-storage units in places including Los Angeles, Valencia, Thousand Oaks, Valencia and Rancho Mirage, stealing numerous guns and other items. They would then offer the guns for sale either in person or through text messages, with Herst and LaFraniere offering to sell guns to people they knew were convicted felons, prosecutors said.

    Carrboro, North Carolina (CNN)There's a flurry of construction activity outside Luvinia Williams' one-story home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Some workers measure and saw lumber while others drill it into place, building a ramp to the front door. The busy scene is unremarkable except for one detail: None of the people doing the work is a man. Women account for less than 4% of workers in the construction trades, like carpentry, plumbing and electrical work, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. With the entire sector currently facing a massive labor shortage as baby-boomers retire and fewer people enter the industry, women could be an untapped resource.Enter Nora El-Khouri Spencer, 42, a licensed general contractor and social worker. Her nonprofit, Hope Renovations, offers a free 10-week program that provides women with the skills and certifications they need to find well-paying jobs in the construction trades. The average hourly wages in the construction industry are often nearly double that of restaurants and hospitality work, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics."My vision is that one day we (won't) think it's...
    A group of Department of Justice employees is asking the Biden administration to follow the lead of other large employers in granting administrative leave to Justice employees who may now have to travel long distances for abortion care, but this sentence in The New York Times' writeup of the request really sticks out: "The request puts the administration in a potentially tricky position: either denying a benefit even as several large companies have made accommodations in the area, or granting one that pits it against state governments that restrict access to the procedure." Uh ... yeah? And so what? We've got several states currently run by a seditionist party that's spent the last half-century trying to roll back civil rights because they believe there is only one true American religion—the one that they personally believe in—and everyone else needs to follow those religious rules or go to jail. Whether or not state governments get upset by the move is irrelevant. Washington state Sen. Emily Randall and RuralOrganizing.org's Matt Hildreth talk about what they're seeing and hearing while knocking on doors this...
    An OnlyFans star claims she had sex with multiple Meta employees in order to get her Instagram reactivated, revealing the shady 'review' process for accounts that are shutdown. Podcaster and OnlyFans creator, known as Kitty Lixo, revealed that the only way to reverse an Instagram ban is to find an employee that 'really, really likes you.'  'I've gotten my Instagram taken down like three or four times,' said Lixo, during an appearance on the No Jumper podcast. She said her account, which features multiple photos of herself in lingerie and bikinis but no full nudity, had been flagged for 'sexual solicitation' because she had shared her OnlyFans link.  Lixo said that the first time her account was shut down, she began 'sleeping' with a friend of hers that happened to work at Instagram back.  'And he did (get her account reactivated), which was really nice of him,' Lixo said on the podcast.  Her friend, who she did not name, gave her the breakdown in the review process, which includes Instagram's integrity team, who oversees banned accounts.  'He basically told me that the...
    Vice President Kamala Harris will hear from four abortion providers in a virtual White House meeting Vice President Kamala Harris is preparing to speak with abortion providers in a virtual meeting at the White House on Thursday afternoon. It comes amid heightened tensions in Washington, DC and across the country as the Supreme Court weighs overturning the federal abortion protections granted in the landmark decision Roe v. Wade. Overturning Roe v. Wade would send the issue of abortion rights back to the states - 26 of which are likely to outlaw the medical procedure once possible.  'The Vice President will hear stories from abortion providers who are working in states with some of the most extreme abortion restrictions, and she will thank them for fighting to protect reproductive health care, despite personal risk,' the White House said in a statement.  She will 'emphasize that the Administration will continue to defend women's constitutional rights and protect access to abortion.' The four abortion providers Harris is meeting with are: California, Oklahoma and Kansas-based physician Dr. Rebecca Taub; Dr. Bhavik Kumar,  from Planned...

    An Australian 'sneakerhead' has opened up about her 200-pair collection worth $150,000 to share her favourite shoes and exactly how she keeps them all clean. A young woman from Melbourne known only as 'Monsieur Banana' said growing up in a time where MTV 'was king' and hip-hop style and fashion was all the rage encouraged her to take footwear seriously. 'I really gravitated towards menswear and Japanese streetwear. Many of the items I coveted I couldn't find anywhere, let alone afford to buy them at the time,' she told FEMAIL. 'I always paid attention to footwear and I remember seeing photos of Pharrell in Bapestas. I wanted them so badly but Bape products were hard to attain and very elusive in the early 2000s.  A young woman from Melbourne known only as 'Monsieur Banana' said growing up in a time where MTV 'was king' and hip-hop style and fashion was all the rage encouraged her to take footwear seriously 'I really gravitated towards menswear and Japanese streetwear.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly filming an 'at-home docuseries' for Netflix as part of their $100 million streaming deal - and are said to have even welcomed cameras into their $14 million Montecito mansion to capture content for the candid show, which will doubt raise fresh fears within the monarchy about what other bombshells the couple might air about the royals.  According to Page Six, the Sussexes have been working with production crews on an 'at-home with the Duke and Duchess-style' show for several months now, which the streaming giant allegedly hopes to release at the end of the year in order to coincide with the publication of Prince Harry's upcoming memoir.  However, sources suggest that the Sussexes are angling for the docuseries to be held over until next year.  'The timing is still being discussed, things are up in the air,' a 'producer in the know' said. News of the couple's alleged docuseries will undoubtedly spark major concerns behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace over what allegations they might air about the royal family while in front...
    Philadelphia's School District encouraged its staff to attend the largest free transgender wellness conference in the world, where extremely explicit content was shared in the name of breaking down barriers. The July 2021 event was held online, organized by the Mazzoni Center, which under the leadership of Sultan Shakir works to improve health and wellbeing among the LGBTQ community in Philadelphia. The School District, led by Superintendent William Hite, emailed teachers and school staff on their mailing list to invite them to attend, describing it as an opportunity to 'learn more about the issues facing the trans community.' Over the course of three days, virtual sessions were held on topics including gender realignment surgery, 'prosthetics for sex', adult toys, and consent. The Philadelphia Trans Wellness conference is the largest in the world, and is now in its 20th year. It was highlighted by the Philadelphia School District last year Sultan Shakir (left), head of the Mazzoni Center - which organizes the conferences.

    Tucker Carlson brought on his now-regular sidekick Glenn Greenwald to denounce Democrats for their 'demagoguery' in connecting Fox News and Republicans to Saturday's massacre in Buffalo. Tucker Carlson is nothing if not risibly predictable: Just as we forewarned, he and his Fox News colleagues spent the day Monday furiously gaslighting their audience about whatever role they might have played in helping to inspire Saturday’s horrifying massacre by a white nationalist unhinged by “replacement theory” rhetoric. And like clockwork, they’re instantly resorting to their time-tested rhetorical trope of accusing anyone connecting their rhetoric to the Buffalo violence of “waving the bloody shirt”: engaging in cheap demagoguery over the corpses of victims just to score political points. That was the theme all day, it seemed, at Fox News, with not only Carlson weighing in at the top of his widely viewed talk show but bringing in his now-regular sidekick Glenn Greenwald to shriek that Democrats were indulging in cheap, power-grabbing politics. Meanwhile, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham resorted to basic whataboutism to erase the terrorism from Saturday’s horror and—surprise!—claim the real problem is...
    New York City officials announced that the state is transitioning into 'high' COVID-19 alert levels, as cases and hospitalizations with the virus begin to rise. The City's Department of Health announced the move Tuesday morning, with Health Commissioner Dr Ashwin Vasan announcing that it is the time to 'double down' on Covid prevention measures. The change comes a day after city officials released a notice recommending all New Yorkers over the age of two mask in in-door public places - though they did not announce it would be mandated. Covid cases in the Big Apple are rising, averaging 4,000 cases per day - a 50 percent increase over the past two weeks. Officials also report a 28 percent jump in hospitalizations and a 19 percent jump in deaths. Around half of those hospitalizations are not even because of Covid, with data revealed last week finding that half of patients were actually receiving treatment for another ailment, and just tested positive while present. Covid cases in New York City are beginning to trend upwards once again, though have not reached anywhere...

    Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador sparked controversy for defending his country’s soldiers after a video showed them retreating from a convoy of cartel members. The president claimed the escape protected the lives of cartel gunmen. The issue began this week when Mexico’s military announced operations in Michoacan. Hours later, a video became viral showing groups of cartel members in SUVs chasing soldiers out of the town of Nueva Italia. Soon after, Lopez Obrador said during a news conference that they must protect his federal troops, but they must also protect members of criminal organizations. “Cuidamos a los elementos de las Fuerzas Armadas, de la Defensa, de la Guardia Nacional, pero también cuidamos a los integrantes de las bandas. Son seres humanos, esta es una política distinta”, dijo el presidente López Obrador.
