ONE PERSON is dead in Suffern, New York, after a tree collapsed on them during severe weather conditions, local reports have confirmed. The east coast of America is being pounded by the second nor’easter storm in the past week, with around 60 million people facing up to two feet of snow by Thursday as winter storms rage on. The storm is forecast to bring a foot and a half of snow to New England and the New York region by Thursday, with the heaviest snowfall predicted for midday Wednesday, and up to three inches of snow per hour through the night.

Good Grief, what a ridiculous, hyperbolic headline. 60 million people and 1 dies, due to a tree falling on him? And that´s news? What a bunch of pansies we have become.

Up to 3 inches of snow? Oh My Gosh!

And what´s with this naming of snow storms? Who´s idea was that? It´s winter, it´s the northern hemisphere, it snows. Get over it.

It’s called “winter”.

And who taught this “journalist” to write? The first sentence set my teeth on edge - “one person” equals “them”?

It´s a UK organization, must give those folks a break on the use of English. The only surprise for me is that people live in that area for two and a half months of Summer and all the taxes they care to pay. I have a cousin who once moved his Texan wife to Boston due to a job change. You can guess how that worked out.

Naming storms like this is proof that the current TV weather folks are nutcases.

In early 1969 the Boston area was hit by three major snowstorms in six days. We did not fly into a panic, wring our hands and bemoan our fate. We sucked it up, got out the snow shovels and pressed on. I even went for my DMV driver´s license test between Storms #2 and 3. I learned the value of front wheel drive, and I think the examiner was ready to give me my permit just for making the ten miles from home to the registry.
These storms are nothing new, the problem is too many people have forsaken their survival instincts and forgotten the basic simple actions to prepare for snowstorms, hurricanes, or floods. Suck it up, buttercups. Your ancestors faced far worse with far less.

The New York Post, America’s finest daily newspaper, finds itself at odds, like the rest of the country, over the hottest issue of the moment – immigration. Even saying that is not so simple. Because we’re really talking about ILLEGAL immigration (50,000 each month) and unaccompanied alien children showing up by the thousands in search of asylum. The argument takes a nasty turn over the wisdom of separating kids from their parents. Some say this is cruel. The government says it’s the law. The Post says – “Stop breaking up families.” Faulting Trump, so runs its lead editorial to start the week. (Separating families,

Michelle Obama traded workout clothes for a chic suit as she went out to lunch in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The former first lady looked perfectly chic for her business lunch as she dined at the Gjelina restaurant in Venice. Michelle swapped out her usual jewel tones with a softer palate of pastels for the meeting. She opted for light green wide-leg trousers and a suit jacket done in matching green and black stripes, topping the look off with a simple white shirt and sandals. The former first lady also shielded her face with an oversized pair of pastel pink sunglasses

President Donald Trump told a meeting of House Republicans that his daughter Ivanka talked to him about children being separated from their families at the border as members of his own party criticize him on his ´zero tolerance´ separation policy. He also left a solution to the political firestorm that has engulfed his administration to the lawmakers. He told his fellow Republicans at a meeting Tuesday evening that Ivanka told him the images from the border are not good, according to a report from a source in the meeting, astweeted by a reporter from Politico.

Steve Levitan announced he would no longer be renewing a tenth season of Modern Family with 20th Century Fox after Laura Ingraham´s controversial comment Monday about immigration detention centers. The Fox News host had been discussing President Trump´s policy to separate immigrant children from their parents when she described the detention centers as ´essentially summer camps´. Ingraham said during her segment on The Ingraham Angle: ´As more illegal immigrants are rushing the border, more kids are being separated from their parents. ´And temporarily housed at what are, essentially, summer camps.´

Richard Branson’s healthcare firm has pocketed £2million of public money by suing the NHS. Virgin Care took High Court action after losing out on an £82million contract to provide children’s medical services in Surrey. The work was handed to a rival group of in-house NHS providers and a social enterprise firm last year. Virgin Care claimed there were ‘serious flaws in the procurement process’ and secured an out-of-court settlement in November. Newly-released accounts show that six clinical commissioning groups and NHS England paid Virgin Care £1.565million. Surrey County Council handed over another

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

Hillary Clinton weighed in Monday morning on the ongoing controversy regarding the Trump administration’s "no-tolerance” border policy, suggesting that Jesus would not condone the actions of the American border authorities. At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time. I’ve studied both the Old and New Testament, and what is being

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,
