Preventive Maintenance You Need To Do And When
If you have a car, it can be tempting just to ignore any type of maintenance unless something goes wrong. I probably don’t have to tell you that this is a bad idea. However, not everyone agrees on what preventive maintenance is, what you should do and when you should do it. Let’s clear that up, and give you some tips that’ll apply to any vehicle. Anyone who’s ever worked on cars or spent a ton of money getting their car repaired will tell you: Don’t ignore preventive maintenance. The basics, like changing your oil, checking your tire pressure and getting scheduled inspections and work done are...
This summer a radical idea was proposed; defund and disband police departments. Underlying this idea is a basic question: What is the purpose of policing? The answer to this question involves an examination of the three groups of people affected by policing; the law-abiding non-criminal majority, the criminal outlaw minority, and the police themselves. Most parents try to raise moral children, so most people grow up with an internalized sense of right and wrong. They don’t kill, torture, rape or steal. They do not live lives based on consistent cheating and lying. They obey laws and social nor...

This 7-year-old was bullied. He responded by opening a food pantry
Cavanaugh Bell stands just slightly taller than the tires on the 53-foot semitrailer he and his mother filled with thousands of pounds of supplies. Although Cavanaugh, 7, appeared tiny next to the towering truck, it was his big idea to load it with essentials for people in need — more than 1,500 miles away from his Maryland home. It has been his mission since the pandemic started, and he says it’s in response to some ruthless bullying he experienced. “After I was bullied and I felt a darkness inside of me, I knew I didn’t want other kids to feel the same way I felt,” he wrote on his GoFundMe p...

Trump floats idea of 2024 White House run
Still irate and bitter one month after his election defeat to Joe Biden, Donald Trump is openly musing about a second run at the US presidency in 2024. Refusing to accept defeat, Trump's lawyers and supporters continued on Wednesday to file lawsuits and even call for extraordinary intervention, such as martial law, to force a new vote. And Trump released an extraordinary 46 minute video in which he again claimed that he was robbed of victory in a "rigged" election. But at a White House Christmas party on Tuesday, the president suggested he might have lost this battle, but would not retire quie...

This is a great idea: The one thing Trump really should do before he leaves office (if he ultimately has to)
By Duncan SmithThere’s not a doubt in our minds around here that the 2020 election was stolen from President Donald Trump.We know. We know Democrats, deep down, know it, too, but they don’t care because their guy ‘won’ so, like the massive hypocrites they are, they will look the other way and pretend for the next four years that Joe Biden’s victory was real and a ‘mandate.’It was neither.So, after four years of trying to depose Donald Trump with fake ‘Russian collusion’ allegations, charges of ‘he’s crazy enough to be removed by the 25th amendment,’ a phony Ukrainian scandal and impeachment, D...

Tree experts say it's a nice idea, but you shouldn't get your hopes up.Most potted trees are not meant to survive the trip to the living room, says Eberhard Hennecke, chairman of the Christmas tree producers' section of Germany's Horticultural Association in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.That's because the convention...
An idea that divides the nation
Filipinos belong to the Malay race that descended from the seafaring Austronesian migrants who populated the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, and the Pacific Islands between 5,000 and 1,500 BCE. The exception is the tiny population of Aeta who preceded the Austronesians in the Philippines. Filipinos are almost wholly a homogenous people, with the same DNA that can be traced back to the Austronesians. Filipinos are indigenous people of the Philippines since they can genetically trace back their ancestry to the ancient Austronesian migrants.While Spain colonized the Philippines for over...

Biden should revamp Asia-Pacific path, ditch Indo-Pacific idea: Global Times editorial
Illustration: Liu Rui/GTBiden has picked his secretary of state and national security advisor as he begins assembling his administration team. The US new administration's diplomatic strategy is now in the spotlight. While Biden's team is highly focused on mending ties with European allies, Asia will certainly be a strategic priority.So how will the new team play the "leadership role" that they have been anticipating? Will it continue Donald Trump's US-China confrontation? Or will it push for a broad participatory framework for managing differences? These are clearly two different paths.There a...
