Didn't someone make a movie about this? It's a thought that must've occurred to someone at the last Thursday, when officials woke to find a $258 million hole in their accounts. Adding insult to injury, the heist was the second such super-sized robbery in 18 months: In April 2014, a single inside operator made off with a staggering $1.3 billion from the Kimren Group (a gambling junket).

As some healthcare workers balk at taking an FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine with fewer known side effects than eating Chicken McNuggets, we should remember and honor the thousands of frontline heroes who died risking their lives to save others. “Deanna's dying wish was that everyone get vaccinated so we can protect our loved ones from COVID-19,” the daughter, Kelseyleigh Hepler, wrote. Deanna had made sure that she got the vaccine as soon as it became available, and her husband and daughter and two sons did the same.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki insisted that the U.S. border is not open during a Tuesday press conference, after former President Obama called the prospect of open borders “unsustainable.

Ask any of the 2,600 residents in this South Carolina town whether they know Alex Murdaugh, and you'll probably get a quick nod. Ask them to tell you about Murdaugh, though, and you'll get a firm head shake, followed by: “You're not going to quote me, are you?” No one wants to talk about the influential lawyer whose wife and son were killed and who's now accused in a string of controversies — at least, not in the open. For the past century, the Murdaughs have steered much of the legal world in this remote corner of South Carolina — north of Savannah, Georgia, and far from the interstate or just about anything else.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) is being ripped on social media for her unusual defense of allegations she abused her power by using her office to help a daughter get a real estate appraisal license from a state agency.

The Associated Press on Monday reported that Noem hauled multiple state officials into a meeting with herself and daughter Kassidy Peters, then 26, when it seemed she was going to be denied the license.
Sometimes you just hit lucky. In 2010, six years after I finished my biography of Mary, Queen of Scots, Sotheby's invited me to examine a cache of Elizabeth I documents that they were offering for sale. Intrigued, I paid a visit to New Bond Street, where, breathtakingly, 43 documents in pristine condition – more than half signed by Elizabeth or her leading courtiers – were laid before me.

Former first lady Melania Trump of the infamous “I don't really care do u?” jacket has been dogged with rumors that she never enjoyed the White House life since before she even moved her bags to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave — in fact, her failure to pack up and move herself and son Barron Trump to Washington, D.C. until June of 2017 was read as the first steadfast sign that she wanted nothing to do with Donald Trump's new political life. Per Woodward and Costa, Melania was seen holding back tears as she and former president Trump made their White House goodbyes — and since for years, we've been hearing that Melania really hated D.C. and wanted out and didn't sign up for this, it was fairly surprising to see how different her experience might have been after all.
In the 1950s the town of Rockport was home to nearly 27 families, according to the Utah Division of Parks and Recreation. Come present day, the Rockport Reservoir isn't so much of a lake anymore — with extreme weather conditions bringing the water to “about a quarter of its total capacity,” the Weather Network reported. “It's kind of sad, because of the drought conditions, but it's a cool little glimmer to look back and see what was there,” said Utah Division of State Parks spokesman, Devan Chavez, the Salt Lake City Tribune reported.
GUANGZHOU, China (Reuters) -Guo Hui, whose cleaning business is owed 20 million yuan ($3.1 million) by embattled real estate giant China Evergrande, is counting on the government to fix a crisis that has left his own company on the brink of bankruptcy. "We've reached out to those in charge but they either say they have no money or don't know when they can settle the payments," Guo said from his office at the back of a building in a street in Guangzhou's Tianhe district that is lively with small restaurants and stalls. His case is typical of countless suppliers left on the hook by China Evergrande, based in nearby Shenzhen, which was the country's top-selling property developer before running short of cash this summer under the weight of $305 billion in debt.

Lawmakers haven't yet moved forward with a broad-based effort to deposit another direct payment into Americans' bank accounts -- but the Biden administration did announce recently that a specific group of Americans will get another $600.

They also looted gold and cars, and detained and whipped several of his relatives to try and establish his whereabouts.
“It wouldn’t take much of an annual wealth tax to rescue the retirement system.”
“Privatizing Social Security — or at least letting individuals opt-out so they can escape the sinking ship — would be a huge win.”
“Congress could save hundreds of billions of dollars by modestly paring back the benefit formula for future wealthy retirees.”
“Raising the retirement age reduces the number of beneficiaries, thereby reducing the costs of the program.”
“Social Security as we know it needs to be abolished and replaced with a better system.”
