Seventeen people, including students and teachers, died after a gunman opened fire on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, February 14.

Here are some of their heroic stories. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below Anthony Borges Anthony Borges, a 15-year-old Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student, was shot five times during the massacre. But he’s credited with saving the lives of at least 20 other students. He was shot in both legs and his back while trying to close and lock a classroom door. Borges's friend Carlos Rodriguez told Good Morning America that the two rushed to hide in a nearby classroom when they first heard gunshots. He says no one knew what to do, but that Borges "took the initiative to just save his other classmates." A GoFundMe page set up to help his family … [Read more...] about These Are Some of the Heroes of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas School Shooting
Historically, you might imagine the fan bases of cycling and NASCAR would mix like oil and water. But to race at 200-plus mph for hours on end, drivers must maintain peak fitness, so many have turned to cycling for its endurance benefits. And they really, really like it. In recent years cycling has become something of a subculture within the driving world, with some drivers even leveraging their reach as public figures to advocate for better safety and awareness of cyclists on the road. This past weekend marked the 60th running of the Daytona 500, and we tagged along for a behind-the-scenes look at the cycling world within NASCAR. With seven NASCAR Cup Series season victories, Jimmie Johnson is known as one of the greatest race car divers of all time. Johnson is also a phenomenal cyclist. Last year, he rode more than 5,700 miles, mostly aboard his Trek road and mountain bikes. Johnson often rides with Lance Armstrong at his home in Colorado and likes riding jump lines at Highland … [Read more...] about Could NASCAR Drivers be Cycling’s Best Safety Advocates?

Because I had never lifted a single weight in my life, I had a huge gym phobia, so I started working out at home doing exercises that involved very light dumbbells, resistance bands, and ankle weights. I purchased Tammy’s beginner program, which involved five to six booty moves that you’d do three times a week for a month, then you'd start a new routine the next month. It was simple but I felt like I learned a lot of the basics—bridges, barbell squats, dumbbell split squats. I also started exploring other fitness influencers like Gabby Scheyen, Grace Fit, and Linn Lowes and learned new exercises and tips. Almost instantly, I noticed mental changes. Working out made me feel good and gave me a huge sense of accomplishment. It became my reliable mood-booster. And three months in, a lot started to change: I noticed my legs had more shape and definition, my glutes were more plump and perky. I went from a pancake booty to finally having a little something—and it was … [Read more...] about ‘I Gained 18 Pounds Of Muscle And Transformed My Pancake Booty’

More than 250 federal lawsuits have been filed against various pharma companies for their alleged involvement in the conditions that created the present opioid epidemic. The settlement talks are the purview of U.S. District Judge Dan Polster in Cleveland. According to him, the epidemic is “100 percent man-made.” Judge Polster also said that other branches of government have … [Read more...] about Settlement talks have begun in opioid lawsuits against Big Pharma – over 250 cases have been brought against multiple companies

While Sarah Toy, the author of the piece, did her best to minimize the problem like any obedient mainstream media journalist would, using terms like “this year’s flu vaccine is slightly less effective overall,” the facts are simple: In a year where the flu has taken on epidemic proportions, the flu shot currently in circulation only promises to protect a measly 36 percent of the people who receive it. Unbelievably, in spite of the absolute uselessness of the current vaccine, earlier this … [Read more...] about FLU VACCINE TRUTH: It’s even less effective than we’ve been told

The obese, beer-obsessed dolt, in responding to concerns expressed by Charlie Kirk from Turning Point USA about the poor treatment that many conservative students receive in the classroom, sent this mocking jested in a tweet: “they (sic) shouldn’t do that,” referring sarcastically to leftist professors who berate, penalize, or otherwise mistreat conservative students. “its (sic) not right,” he added, “they should hold the conservative … [Read more...] about More left-wing violence on parade as commentator says all conservatives should be drowned to death by holding their heads under water

House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said over the weekend that his panel has seen no evidence of said collusion, but nevertheless, the Mueller probe continues, hence the 13 new indictments. The Russians’ alleged crime(s)? Interfering with the 2016 presidential election. Oh, that.
