Affidavit Evidence During a Pandemic

So you have a dog nipping at your feet, a child pulling on your sleeve, something cooking on the stove, and your phone rings in the middle of your Zoom conference call.

TikTok is being used by vape sellers marketing to teens

TikTok has a vaping problem. Although a 2019 U.S. law made it illegal to sell or market e-cigarettes to anyone under the age of 21, TikTok videos featuring top brands of disposable e-cigarettes and vapes for sale have been relatively easy to find on the app. These videos, set to popular and upbeat music, clearly target a teenage customer base with offers of now-unauthorized cartridge flavors like fruit and mint in the form of a disposable vape. Some sellers even promote their “discreet” packagin...

Comment on whole lemon tart by J Jackson

Not sure where I went wrong ….. my tart was looking pretty awesome going in. The top was getting really brown and it still had time to go according to the recipe. I unfortunately made a poor decision to loosely put a piece of foil over the top to protect it from getting too dark. Oh no, the top got stuck and it is not pretty. I still plan to try it once it is cooled. I loved the idea of using the whole lemon. Myers are in season where I am and always looking for great lemon recipes.

Golf enjoyed its best increase in participation since 1997, the year of Tiger Woods’ first Masters. Zoom executives and investors will look back fondly. And those who grew to hate a basketball team that set new definitions for creativity, unselfishness, exuberance and entertainment? This was their favorite year.
