Take Clément and Sara Pascal’s Bushwick apartment. The couple (he’s a photographer; she’s a psychologist) bought the 1,000-square-foot flat in Brooklyn ten years ago—and it took them about that long to get it to where it is now. Much of the vintage midcentury furniture was found by patiently stal...

Some police chiefs genuinely want to fire their bad apples. Their department's history can make that almost impossible.

Protesters scuffle with police during a march against police violence in Manhattan on April 14, 2015 in New York City.

"Near the beginning of 'Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President'... President Carter offers a revelation involving one of his children, country singer Willie Nelson and what Nelson once described as 'a big fat Austin torpedo.'"

"Asked about Nelson’s account of smoking marijuana on the roof of the White House at the tail end of Carter’s term in 1980, the former president lets out a chuckle. Nelson, Carter explains in the film, 'says that his companion that shared the pot with him was one of the servants at the White House. That is not exactly true. It actually was one of my sons.'... Asked whether he was the Carter offspring whose father had accused him of smoking pot at the White House, Chip pauses.... 'My guess is it’...

Sales return to normal levels at massive chains, but independent restaurants continue to struggle — a trend that could permanently change the industry

Dunkin' is looking to buy up struggling independent coffee shops. Reuters Spending at big restaurant chains is up 2%, while sales at small chains and independent restaurants are still down 15%, according to a Bank of America report.  A big chunk of the gap can be explained by the fact that chains are more likely to own fast-food and fast-casual locations, many of which built a thriving drive-thru and to-go business before the pandemic.  Chains including Dunkin, Chipotle, and Domino's a...
