Prince William has confirmed that he’s at least as dodgy a kingly prospect as his father the Prince of Wales by calling for a ‘Reset.’ William, who is second in line to the British throne, slipped the codeword into a video broadcast for the environmental charity Conservation International. He said: ‘All of us, across all sectors of society, and in every corner of the globe must come together to fundamentally reset our relationship with nature and our trajectory as a species.’ Others have criticised William (currently worth an estimated £30 million, though due one day to inherit a fortune of at least £1.6 billion) for this ‘do as I say, rather than do as I do’ hypocrisy. With his Range Rover and his air miles (some of them in private jets) William is hardly a role model for carbon parsimony, so why should we let him lecture us ordinary folk on how we should live our lives? But for me, hypocrisy is the least of his sins. What should worry us far more is that sinister … [Read more...] about Delingpole: Prince William Calls for a ‘Reset’. Gosh, What Can He Mean?
UPPER DARBY, Pa. (CBS) — A small drug store in Delaware County says it’s the perfect community partner to administer COVID-19 vaccines but says it feels cut out of the process. Like many independent pharmacies, one in Upper Darby is now feeling helpless to aid its community. READ MORE: Woman Injured After Flames Rip Through Home In Springfield Diane Klause says she spent thousands of dollars prepping Public Drug to help vaccinate her neighborhood. After receiving and administering 200 Moderna vaccines, she says they stopped coming. “No explanation why, just due to vaccine supply,” Klause, owner of Public Drug, said. Klause showed Eyewitness News a letter from the Pennsylvania Department of Health asking her to not request additional doses, cutting her and other independent pharmacies out from distribution until more vaccines become available. Klause says the Department of Health has not given her any indications as to when more supply will be available. “No, not at … [Read more...] about Upper Darby Pharmacy Receives ‘No Explanation Why’ It Stopped Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine After Administering 1st Shots
Voodoo Doughnut opened its first shop outside of Oregon on Friday — on East Colfax Avenue in Denver. Co-founders Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon searched around the world — from Amsterdam to Chicago — before settling on the former Rent-A-Center at 1520 E. Colfax Ave. The irreverent dough moguls warn Denverites eager for a taste of the famous Bacon Maple Creams that the store will be open irregular hours in the evenings at first, as they break in the new equipment and tweak the recipes for high altitude. Known for their R- and even X-rated names, Voodoo’s doughnuts come with toppings such as crushed cereal, bacon and candy. The stores in Portland and Eugene are open 24 hours a day and often have lines of 50 to 100 people. The official grand opening is scheduled for Jan. 15, Shannon said. For the latest information on hours, check the Voodoo Doughnut Mile High Facebook page. The Denver store will eventually be open 24/7, too. And like the Oregon stores, it … [Read more...] about Voodoo Doughnut opens on East Colfax Avenue in Denver

No sum of money will breathe back into George Floyd ’s body the life Derek Chauvin squeezed out of it. Nor will the budgetary impact of the $27 million Minneapolis will pay to settle his family’s lawsuit rank as the most significant consequence of Floyd’s death. Yet $27 million is enough to make even the biggest and wealthiest municipalities take notice. Is the Floyd settlement — one of the largest on record — an aberration or a sign of things to come? And if police liability costs are rising generally, what will this mean for pandemic-pinched local governments? The Floyd settlement, in all likelihood, is both an outlier and a clue about where we’re headed. Even among the most notorious and tragic cases, Floyd’s death was exceptionally callous and indefensible. It’s hard to imagine Minneapolis defending the explosive case at trial. The pressure to settle, at almost any cost, was enormous. But there is also reason to think the $27-million figure reflects not only the … [Read more...] about The future of police liability
