Haus Laboratories Le Riot Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Haus Laboratories Le Riot Lipgloss is a new lipgloss formula created by Lady Gaga that’s available in six shades for $18 each. As you may or may not know Haus Laboratories by Lady Gaga was teased late this Summer and became available for pre-order on the brand’s website and amazon.com. I think I placed an order on amazon.com in August but my pre-order was shipped around September 20th or so. It was a long wait for something I wanted to try out immediately. This isn’t Gaga’s first foray into bea...

Tackling the Freedom Trail in Boston

Boston is a city I haven’t given enough attention to over the years, and I’m not sure why that is exactly. While I may not know it as well as some other spots around the country, I was certain that it would make for a fun weekend getaway, and turns out I was right. I’m working with Marriott International to highlight some cities around the U.S. that I enjoy visiting and consider perfect for a two or three day getaway, and Boston is near the top of that list. I will soon write a comprehensive po...

Trump Fixates On Crowd Size, Skims Over Big Issues In 2 Hour CPAC Speech

President Donald Trump spent a considerable chunk of his lengthy, chum-filled address to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday addressing, yet again, the crowd size at his inaugural address. The President’s rambling speech didn’t spend much time on the biggest issues of the day. Over two hours, he spent just a few sentences on his recent unsuccessful meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and only mentioned in passing some Republican senators’ hesitations about the e...

The Johnstown Flood in the Potomac Watershed

The idea that the Pennsylvania Johnstown Flood of 1889 wiped out major bridges along the Monocacy River got me researching the extent of the damage.For those looking for a little background via way of this blog circa 2005:The United States is a very young nation, and much of the Western U.S. was nearly devoid of people only 150 years ago. That said, Americans are industrious and the construction of small ponds and large lakes for water storage and ice-making naturally led to increased still-w...

FBI arrests Georgia man suspected of planning to bomb White House

Federal agents today arrested a man in Georgia who they say was planning an attack with weapons and explosives on the White House, the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. The attack was to have taken place tomorrow, Thursday, January 17, and the man met with FBI agents yesterday and today before his arrest.

How to Visit and Enjoy Washington, DC In Spite of a Government Shutdown

No matter where you live, by now you have no doubt heard about the shutdown of the Federal Government across the U.S. The effects of this closure are many and widely felt but today I’m not going to talk about the politics of it. No, instead I want to share why now is actually a great time to visit Washington, DC and what the city has to offer in spite of the shutdown. Believe it or not, there’s a lot to experience and since 1) it is January and 2) visitors may think there’s not much to experien...

What To Expect In A Partial Government Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — As President Donald Trump and Congress bicker over Trump’s call for $5 billion to build a border wall with Mexico, government agencies are preparing for a partial government shutdown set to begin at midnight Friday. The dispute could affect nine of 15 Cabinet-level departments and dozens of agencies, including the departments of Homeland Security, Transportation, Interior, Agriculture, State and Justice, as well as national parks and forests.

Eric Conway: Morgan Choir sings at Christmas tree Lighting ceremony at Mt. Vernon Place!

Dr. Eric Conway writes: Last night, the Morgan State University Choir sang once again at the lighting ceremony of the Christmas tree at Baltimore’s Washington Monument at Mt. Vernon Place.   Although we love this event, we are not so excited about singing outdoors in the December!  However, last night temperature was a few degrees warmer than in previous years at 36º F., or maybe there was less wind in the air, but no one complained about temperature!  See attached some pics and ...

The real story behind Melania's White House Christmas decorations

Melania Trump has unveiled the 2018 White House Christmas decorations. And the fact she refers to them as 'Christmas' decorations is perhaps the most telling thing about them.  We've become used to our friends across the pond using the secular term 'holidays' at this time of year, recognising the diverse nature of American society and its different religions, so is the current First Lady making a statement by reclaiming the Christian aspect of the festivities? If so, thi...

'Vaya con Dios:' the impossible life of an immigration judge at the US border

Robert Brack, who at one point had the heaviest caseload of any federal judge in the US, pleads for justice for the immigrants he sees every dayClimbing the shallow gray stone steps leading to the borderlands of justice in Las Cruces, New Mexico, you see something in the arid morning sun gleaming between the glass. It looks like a miniature Washington Monument on the first landing of the 10th district federal courthouse. Closer inspection reveals it represents a border crossing marker, half whit...

Are We Really Smarter Than Our Forefathers? (Greg Davidson)

Eighth grade is a great time for teenagers. They still have that love and loyalty to their parents, their God, and their country. We wanted to cultivate that moment in our fourteen-year-old’s life by taking him to Washington D.C. to revisit the great purposes and foundation of our country. We arrived in the city, checked into our hotel, and the adventure began. We visited the U.S. Capital and found that there is a Private prayer chapel off the U.S. Capitol Rotunda. The focal point of the chapel ...

September travel for families

In September, family vacations come to a screeching halt. Kids focus on school, reuniting with classmates, meeting new teachers, and starting in on schoolwork. Yet September is a great time to travel. In the northern hemisphere, the weather is lovely and the days still long, but the tourist crowds have gone home. Prices for everything from airfare to hotels can be better, as well — and for many, those affordable prices may be the most feasible opportunity to take the whole fam on vacation. We...

Police end Las Vegas mass shooting investigation without answering this question: Why?

More than 10 months after the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, police say they are closing their investigation without answering the key question: What drove a gunman to unleash a hail of gunfire that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more? But authorities say after hundreds of interviews and thousands of hours of investigative work, they are confident there is no evidence of a conspiracy or a second gunman. Stephen Paddock was an “unremarkable man” who showed signs of a troub...

The Rise Of Sacred Brands And Experiences

Traditional marketing communications erected a big wall between what anthropologists term Sacred vs. Profane. Sacred consumption occurs when we “set apart” objects and events from normal activities and treat them with respect or awe. Note that in this context the term sacred does not necessarily carry a religious meaning, although we do tend to think of religious artifacts and ceremonies as “sacred.” Profane consumption in contrast, describes objects and events that are ordinary or everyday; ...

Potential nominee profile: Brett Kavanaugh

When then-candidate Donald Trump released his first two lists of potential Supreme Court nominees in May and September of 2016, the omission of Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit drew comment. Kavanaugh had served for 10 years on a bench known as a springboard to the Supreme Court. With his impeccable academic credentials and sterling reputation in conservative political and legal circles, he seemed like an obvious choice. And his name was e...

God Save The Queen: Thanks To Trump, We’re British Now

My fellow Americans, we’ve received rather shocking news. It’s time to stow our emotions and star-spangled banners, to embrace gloomy weather and oversized red buses, to go nuts about a spy who likes weak drinks, to scoop that tea back out of the harbor — we’re British now. President Donald Trump added to the worldwide respect and prestige he gained at the G-7 summit by musing over dinner that Crimea (which Russia invaded and annexed from Ukraine in 2014) was actually Russian all along, since...

12 Iconic Marvel Comics Moments That ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Brings to Life

Eighteen years into the comic book movie millennium, it’s easy to take for granted that there now exists a whole cinematic universe full of characters that Marvel Comics readers could previously only dream about seeing up on the big screen. What once seemed like a fan pipe dream has now become a reality with Avengers: Infinity War, a movie that brings together heroes from at least five different film series (nine if you count the MCU characters who currently only have one solo movie under thei...

The Washington Monument: Center of Political Power?

Image: the Washington Monument which was built in the form of an obelisk, an Illuminati symbol of power. In fact, the Monument marks the spot on earth where the power of these legends-in-their-own-minds is centered and politically that's Washington DC (for the moment, at least). Of course, obelisks also stand in various places across the globe such as London and New York where they mark the secretive organization's centers of financial power. Now these mystical tidbits and many more were well ...

Save money in Washington DC

The nation’s capital is not the cheapest city. Bars are expensive, hotels are expensive, meals are expensive, and, as any of the hordes of underpaid government interns living on the Hill will tell you, living in general is expensive. There are a few ways to keep costs down on your trip, though. 1. Visit the free National Museums. This is the most obvious money-saver: most of the major attractions in DC are free. Most of the free ones are along the Mall, stretching from the Capitol to the Pot...

A Horror Newbie Watches ‘The Exorcist’ For the First Time

(Welcome to The Final Girl, a regular feature from someone who has steered clear of horror and is ready to finally embrace the genre that goes bump in the night. Next on the list: William Friedkin’s seminal Oscar-nominated horror film The Exorcist.) I’ve passed by the Exorcist staircase more than a dozen times. And every time, someone in my group excitedly whispers “That’s the stairs from The Exorcist,” and we stare up silently, daunted by its steep incline and the worn-out stones. It’s only a ...

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., born on January 15, 1929, was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. A Baptist minister, King led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957, serving as its first president.
