Meet Lauren and Solomon. And, although the kidney stone looks enormous in the video, it actually measured five millimeters (which FYI is still big for a kidney stone!). "Five millimeters may not seem big, but when it's a jagged rock making its way through your ureters and then out the urethra, it sure does feel big," Solomon said.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources on Saturday shared an image that shows two bobcats camouflaged in a wintry landscape, and asked its Facebook followers: “There are two bobcats in this snapshot from Lincoln County!

Kellogg Co said on Tuesday a majority of its U.S. cereal plant workers have voted against a new five-year contract, forcing it to hire permanent replacements as employees extend a strike that started more than two months ago. Temporary replacements have already been working at its cereal plants in Michigan, Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Tennessee where 1,400 union members went on strike on Oct. 5 as their contracts expired and talks over payment and benefits stalled. Union members have said the proposed two-tier system, in which transitional employees get lesser pay and benefits compared to longer tenured workers would take power away from union by removing the cap on how many lower tier employees it could have.

It was “a call you don't see every day,” the Clearwater Police Department wrote on Facebook.

Cloud seeding is a technique that increases rainfall by dispersing certain substances into the air which make water droplets cluster. The research, published in peer-reviewed Chinese journal Environmental Science on Nov. 26, noted that the celebration was expected to face an overcast sky and a significant rise in air pollutants, despite efforts to temporarily stop factory production and other similar activities days beforehand.

California Rep. Devin Nunes' decision not to run for re-election to head former President Donald Trump's new social media venture is the perfect summation of the state of the Republican Party. This would only make sense in a climate where a Twitter and talk show provocateur like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) — who has been stripped of all her committee assignments — is better known than every ranking Republican with the possible exception of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). Nunes is in line to chair the House Ways and Means Committee following an election in which Republicans are heavily favored, and it is practically the house style of every political publication to append the adjective "powerful" to the tax-writing committee.
Law enforcement and prosecutors have noted the many warnings signs that preceded the massacre at Oxford High School last week, including that 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley was caught googling ammunition the day before the tragedy and was found with a picture depicting a violent act that said, "The thoughts won't stop.

“I know it doesn’t feel like it, but inflation is both a feature and a bug of a normalizing economy.”
“What is not going to work, and hasn’t worked, is trying to talk people out of the lived reality of higher prices.”
“When inflation expectations rise, actual inflation tends to follow.”
“The Fed must acknowledge that its monetary policy has been a source of inflation, and that it will need to raise interest rates.”
“The supply chain logjams are the core of the problem right now, and that should work itself out over time.”
