The owner of top household clothing brands including Old Navy, Banana Republic and Athleta – says its namesake store is dragging down its overall sales and that it is looking into closing hundreds of the brand’s locations “with urgency.”
We’re committed to helping build a safe online environment for all users, and we have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to media featuring child sexual exploitation and abuse. As this is an industry-wide problem, we work collaboratively with our industry peers and partners like NCMEC to actively monitor content uploaded to the platform. Every image uploaded to Tumblr is scanned against an industry database of known child sexual abuse material, and images that are detected never reach the platform. A routine audit discovered content on our platform that had not yet been included in the industry database. We immediately removed this content. Content safeguards are a challenging aspect of operating scaled platforms. We’re continuously assessing further steps we can take to improve and there is no higher priority for our team.
According to The Sunday Times, a new report is claiming that huge solar flares can generate such intense magnetic fields over Earth which in a flash could burn out delicate electronics and even set them on fire. The report, co-authored with scientists from the British Antarctic Survey, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, and Cambridge University said the UK should construct an early warning system because of their risk.
This is extremely important and not just for the NRA. These politicians getting companies to blacklist organizations using their rights is incredibly dangerous. If Cuomo gets to bankrupt the NRA, they won't stop there. Next it'll be the Southern Baptists, or the Family Research Council, or the Heritage Foundation. And downhill from there.
The White House late Tuesday signed a memo allowing troops stationed at the border to engage in some law enforcement roles and use lethal force, if necessary — a move that legal experts have cautioned may run afoul of the Posse Comitatus Act.

TST attorney Stuart de Haan on Wednesday sent THR a statement: "The Satanic Temple is pleased to announce that the lawsuit it recently filed against Warner Bros. and Netflix has been amicably settled. The unique elements of the Satanic Temple’s Baphomet statue will be acknowledged in the credits of episodes which have already been filmed. The remaining terms of the settlement are subject to a confidentiality agreement."
Ray Chavez, believed to be the oldest-surviving veteran of the attack on Pearl Harbor, died Wednesday at the age of 106.
Kathleen Chavez, who had been her father’s live-in caregiver at his Poway home for more than 30 years, said he passed away peacefully in the early morning hours Wednesday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) on Friday removed five illegal aliens from El Salvador, who were fugitives wanted in their home country for various serious crimes, including aggravated murder.
Umanzor-Hernandez, Roca-Ruiz, Cortez-Granados, and Cruz Rodriguez are all known members of the brutal transnational criminal street gang MS-13. All five individuals illegally entered the U.S.
He's 1000% correct. They keep saying 'global cooling' then 'global warming' and now they use 'climate change' so they can hide the see-saw narrative.
Climate change is real, but man-made climate change is a different story. Most of the computer models that used to conclude the effects that man has on climate are usually never right. They don't even account for clouds.
We don't understand anything and need to stop pretending like we do.
We're at the end of an interglacial period of an ice age.
There is a fact of some current warming. But the models are completely flawed, some research was deliberately fudged, raw data is kept hidden from the public, and there were much wider swings in centuries preceding industrialization. These days better sensing technologies are being continually deployed, and we'll look back on today's 'scientific consensus' with embarrassment. Big government worldwide cooked up a long con to steal more of our money and freedom. Fake environmentalists use global cooling/global warming/climate change as a tool for socialism/communism and to enrich leftist groups with subsidies for corrupt and bogus “green energy” companies like Obama did with Solyndra.
Global warming is the last thing you need to worry about.
A 53-year-old man posed as a customer at a Catholic gift shop outside St. Louis, Missouri, then threatened three women with a gun, sexually assaulted them, and fatally shot one, officials said.
Thomas Bruce was taken into custody at his home on Wednesday and charged with 17 crimes, including first-degree murder, sodomy, and kidnapping. He may also face the death penalty.

PHARR, Texas—U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations (OFO) at the Pharr International Bridge cargo facility arrested a 30-year-old man from Rio Bravo, Tamaulipas, Mexico after discovering $953,000 worth of methamphetamine and cocaine within the commercial truck he was driving.
Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder of unknown aetiology. It is suggested to involve both genetic susceptibility and environmental factors including in the latter environmental toxins. Human exposure to the environmental toxin aluminium has been linked, if tentatively, to autism spectrum disorder. Herein we have used transversely heated graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry to measure, for the first time, the aluminium content of brain tissue from donors with a diagnosis of autism. We have also used an aluminium-selective fluor to identify aluminium in brain tissue using fluorescence microscopy. The aluminium content of brain tissue in autism was consistently high. The mean (standard deviation) aluminium content across all 5 individuals for each lobe were 3.82(5.42), 2.30(2.00), 2.79(4.05) and 3.82(5.17) μg/g dry wt. for the occipital, frontal, temporal and parietal lobes respectively. These are some of the highest values for aluminium in human brain tissue yet recorded and one has to question why, for example, the aluminium content of the occipital lobe of a 15 year old boy would be 8.74 (11.59) μg/g dry wt.? Aluminium-selective fluorescence microscopy was used to identify aluminium in brain tissue in 10 donors. While aluminium was imaged associated with neurones it appeared to be present intracellularly in microglia-like cells and other inflammatory non-neuronal cells in the meninges, vasculature, grey and white matter. The pre-eminence of intracellular aluminium associated with non-neuronal cells was a standout observation in autism brain tissue and may offer clues as to both the origin of the brain aluminium as well as a putative role in autism spectrum disorder.
