Making the Hard Decisions: Ethical Lawyering

What do you do as a lawyer when your client wants you to call a witness or make representations to the court that you believe are non-starters and even dangerous to your client’s case? If you’re one of President Donald Trump’s lawyers, you might seek to introduce a “handwritten yellow sticky note” as evidence of election fraud (see decision with ruling the note was inadmissible as hearsay here). And then there’s Dean Embry, the lawyer representing James Sears, the editor of Your Ward News, who n...

Edgardo Allan Poe’s “The Raven”

Edgardo Allan Poe (not to be mistaken for Edgar Allan Poe), Latin America’s #1 Horror Writer, reads “The Raven”.  By Alexis Pereira A note from the author about how “The Raven” by Edgardo Allan Poe came to be written: “I was inspired to write that story when I was arrested by ICE. One day, somebody knock on my door and they say, “Your pizza’s ready.” I did not order no pizza. And also it was seven o’clock in the morning. When I open the door, eight guys in Pizza Hut polos rushed in and th...

2021 Toyota Sienna Overview: Trim Levels, Tech & Safety Features, Pricing & More

The word “swagger” isn’t one that leaps to mind when you hear the term minivan, but Toyota hopes its just-announced 2021 Sienna changes that. Perhaps Toyota coined the term “swagger wagon” to wipe away reminders that minivan sales are in the dumpster, and many reviewers contend Sienna rates way behind the Honda Odyssey, Chrysler Pacifica, and Kia Sedona. Sure, Toyota has top sales with many models, including Camry, RAV4,  and Prius. Still, the Sienna minivan is consistently bested by the Hond...

People stuck at home turned to gardening, and tomatoes and turnips are top sellers

By JOHN RABY In the year of the new coronavirus, when new gardeners came out in droves to try growing their own vegetables, tomatoes were still king. And in a twist, the respect-seeking turnip actually turned some heads. Seed companies taking stock of what went well and what came out of the woodwork proclaimed the tomato as their top seller this year. Specifically, at Burpee, the Bodacious Tomato was the best-selling vegetable seed. The company calls the large, disease-resistant but pricey hybri...

Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept: The Jeep For Brave Mountain Bikers!

There are plenty of reasons to love Jeep, but the Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept is the first one that ever made me seriously consider mountain biking. Jeep used a 2020 Gladiator as the Top Dog’s foundation, then added racks, storage systems, and some brute power to take you on muddy, boulder-strewn adventures. You probably remember that Mopar released the Jeep Gladiator Farout Concept in April. Yes, this new Jeep concept is similar, but the extras make it truly ready for mountain bikers. The...

The rise and fall of Subway, the world's largest fast-food chain

Subway's sales have been on the decline in recent years. Horacio Villalobos / Getty Subway, the largest fast-food chain in the US and in the world, opened in the 1960s and quickly expanded in the following decades. Successful ad campaigns with Jared Fogle — the man who said he lost over 200 pounds while eating Subway sandwiches — and the "$5 footlong" jingle have contributed to sales throughout the years. However, the company took a turn in 2014 when sales started to decline. It had a ...

Chevy K5 Blazer-E Rolls Into SEMA360 as a Modern EV With Vintage Flair

Chevrolet’s latest concept build is a “blast from the past” and takes us back to the 1970s when the K5 Blazer roamed the streets. This is Chevy’s latest eCrate conversion concept that pairs the body of a 1977 K5 Blazer with an all-electric propulsion system. The result is this stunning K5 Blazer-E. If you’re like me, you’ve heard Gen Z drivers lament the classic good looks of mid-century rides – especially muscle cars – and yearn for an environmentally friendly option. Expect that group to b...

Mini Rolls Out Two New Special Editions & We Want Both

Expect Mini Coopers’ just released 1499 GT Special Edition and the Mini Countryman Oxford Edition to stoke excitement among its fans. The automaker has only about 0.21 percent of the U.S. market share, but Mini owners are loyal. I had weekly invitations to drive my own Union Jack-decorated Mini Coupe to an array of enthusiast events or buy bling that harkened back to the Mini’s 1959 birth. The spunky Mini didn’t arrive in the U.S. until 2002, and I can tell you there are plenty of owners that...

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: New Styling Cues Make it Look Less Like a Pontiac Aztek

You’ll see the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross that is slated to roll into showrooms early next year has shed the bloated look that was somewhat reminiscent of an old gym shoe. The exterior design of this new Eclipse Cross is more akin to a pair of Nike Air Force 1s. It has a slimmer, sportier look, a more refined interior, and better tech. 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Powertrain Those are all positives, but the automaker primarily touts the eco-friendliness of this new Eclipse Cross, alt...

Enjoy This Gallery of Lamborghini Urraco Photos! This Car is Rare & Beautiful!

The Lamborghini Urraco is one good-looking 50 year old. When this 2+2 coupe debuted at the October 1970 Turin Motor Show, critics hailed its technical innovations. Engineer Paolo Stanzani, the father of the Urraco and Lamborghini’s Chief Technical Officer at that time, deserved a lot of the credit. And the style was pretty sleek, too. The angular body was 4.25 meters (just under 14 feet) long, and the Urraco’s interior was unique to the time, with things like a “dished” steering wheel. Des...

Audi has rolled out details about its eco-friendly 2021 Q5, A7, and A8 TFSI e models, and while they’ve got sleeker styles, more torque, and better tech, the big news is their energy efficiency.

2021 Audi R8 RWD Coupe & Spyder: Strong Performance but for Less Cash!

Now may be the time for budget-conscious Audi R8 Coupe and Spyder lovers to take the leap into their dream cars. The automaker just announced that rear-wheel drive (RWD) versions of both are permanent editions to the lineup beginning with the 2021 model year.

Lexus J201 Concept to Tackle Upcoming Rebelle Rally

When the Lexus J201 Concept debuts October 8th in the 10-day, 1200-mile, women-only Rebelle Rally across Nevada and California, it’s a clear sign that politicians aren’t the only ones that play to their bases. Even though Lexus is a luxury brand, they do tout their off-road capabilities in vehicles like the LX 570 and GX 460. Toyota’s luxury cousin has long had its best sales in the United States, so it makes sense the automaker would craft its own modified version of the Lexus LX 570 as an o...
