AOC Laughs Off Fox News Claim That ‘Somebody’s Writing Her Questions’ For Her

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), a freshman lawmaker who’s become conservative media’s new favorite punching bag, called the latest “Fox and Friends” dig — that she couldn’t possibly be writing her own questions — “amusing.” “You know what’s amusing about this whole thing?” she tweeted Thursday. “Our leg staff (who help with Qs) also worked in restaurants, grew up in Appalachian trailer parks and come from immigrant families.” You know what’s amusing about this whole thing?

Art Wilson: Tactical speed among key traits of Top 6 contenders for the 2019 Kentucky Derby

Tactical speed, tactical speed and more tactical speed. It’s a fact that horses that don’t need to depend on others to do the dirty work are far more successful than speed balls that need the lead or closers that require a fast pace to do their best running. No less an authority than Mark Casse, who trained the great Tepin and who will start Kentucky Derby contender War of Will in Saturday’s Louisiana Derby at the Fair Grounds, agrees with that assessment. He loves horses with tactical speed. “(...

After 22 horse deaths at Santa Anita, race cancellations have ‘devastated’ workers, jockeys

The home stretch and stands are empty at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., Thursday, March 7, 2019.

Here's what you should do if you feel drowsy while driving, according to a Chevy safety engineer who saw the danger of tired driving firsthand when serving in Iraq (GM)

Maureen Short is a West Pointer and former US Army Captain who learned about drowsy driving firsthand when she was a company commander in Iraq. She now studies drowsy driving as a safety engineer at GM's Chevrolet brand. Her advice is to get adequate rest or pull over when sleepy — don't try to push through with coffee. Maureen Short joined Chevrolet three years ago as a safety engineer, but her career was already something of a professional highlight reel.  The US Military Academy graduate f...

Don’t Force Gratitude

In his book What Happy People Know, Dan Baker argues that you can’t be in a state of appreciation and fear, or anxiety, at the same time. He explains: During active appreciation the threatening messages from your amygdala [fear center of the brain] and the anxious instincts of your brainstem are cut off, suddenly and surely, from access to your brain’s neocortex, where they can fester, replicate themselves, and turn your stream of thoughts into a cold river of dread. It is a fact of neurology th...

Wilson: Stronach Group’s move to ban raceday medication was a bombshell

The Stronach Group dropped a bombshell on all of us Thursday, announcing a ban on raceday medication, including Lasix, at its two California tracks, Santa Anita and Golden Gate Fields.

‘The Highwaymen’ Review: Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson Take Aim, But Their Movie Misses the Target [SXSW]

John Lee Hancock ’s The Highwaymen is a poster child for Netflix Originals when it comes to noting how “unparalleled creative freedom” isn’t always beneficial. Cinematography paints an early 1900s Texas frontier where Wild West lawlessness gets a Tommy Gun upgrade, and performances are as prolific as the names attached, but oh how dusty a biographical drama that cannot sustain over 120 minutes. Breathless prairies with Dust Bowl destitution become repetitive; characters over explained after w...
