An investigation from Nashville's NewsChannel 5 released Monday sparked scrutiny of the operation, and the Federal Aviation Administration will reportedly review the incident to see whether the flyover violated any aviation rules.

Armed officers entered the camp, which runs along a disused railway line, before workers in protective suits pulled down tents and plastic shelters. Charity workers say the 27 migrants who drowned in the Channel last Wednesday (November 24) had stayed in the same area before they attempted the perilous sea crossing from France to Britain last Wednesday. Their dinghy deflated in the open sea.

The Denver Post editorial board did what Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) has so far refused to do: It offered a sincere apology to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).

The board said it was “embarrassed a Colorado representative is engaged in widening” divisions in the country.

In 2018, astronauts aboard the International Space Station plugged a 2mm "hole" in a Soyuz MS-09 vehicle that had docked with the station in June of that year. While the pressure leak never posed an immediate threat to those aboard, it set off a bizarre turn of events that saw Russia open an investigation to find out if the incident was the result of sabotage.

In October, former President Donald Trump hailed his fourth and final chief of staff Mark Meadows' forthcoming book as an "incredible" present for those who want to learn about "politics" and "truth."

Dickens won a campaign dominated by concern over rising violent crime in the city, arguing he would be more effective than Moore, who had often been a sometimes-lonely critic of previous mayors in her 20 years on the City Council. Moore had been the leading candidate by a wide margin in the first round of voting on Nov. 2 among 14 candidates in a nonpartisan race.

In a fourth search warrant approved by a New Mexico judge, detectives on Tuesday revealed that armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed's father Thell Reed reached out to them November 15 to tell them about possibly hundreds of rounds of live ammunition that Rust “armorer mentor” Seth Kenney took from him earlier this year.

“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.”
