We did tastings and these were the ones that made it.” Ready to sample some flavors? Here you go: 1. Jambalaya Ma...

Born on drugs: Predictions about crack babies didn’t come true, offering hope for opioid era

To the courts, she was just a case number. It was impersonal because, at the time, she was one in a long line of “crack babies,” which is what newborns like her were called in 1996. Today, she has a name; Nancy Elizabeth Palmer. And even though she came into the world with little chance of surviving her birth mother’s addiction to crack (along with methamphetamine and opioids and anything she could get her hands on), Palmer is more than OK. These days, the condition is known as “neonatal abstine...

Residents, cops fight back against porch pirates with newfangled tools

If Black Friday felt a little less hectic, think porch deliveries. A record $7.9 billion was spent online in the United States this year on that day, according to an estimate by software company Adobe — an increase of 19.3 percent over just the year before. So that battalion of trucks you see out there dropping off packages this holiday season is bigger than ever. Probably, sadly, so is the parade of prowling porch pirates.
