MORE than one in four Brits admit they keep secrets from their partners, according to research. A poll of 2,000 adults also found 12 per cent of women admit they don’t tell their partners everything, compared to 8 per cent of men. And one in 20 Brits said they are currently keeping at least one ‘huge’ secret from their other half. The study was conducted by Lottoland, whose spokesperson Laura Pearson said: “Honesty is always the best policy when it comes to relationships, because you can’t take a chance on love. “Some of these findings are really concerning. Telling the odd lie about whether you’re in the pub, or if you flirted with someone in the coffee shop are all innocent enough, but lying about affairs or debt is a serious concern.” The survey also found three in 10 women are likely to fib to their other half about their shopping habits, and 20 per cent aren’t always completely truthful about their whereabouts. A quarter of men … [Read more...] about Quarter of Brits lie to their partners — with men TWICE as more likely to keep an affair secret from their spouse
Updated at 12:30 p.m. to include reaction from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and additional comment from the plaintiffs.

But the state won't need to reveal current any information, she added, because the Texas Legislature passed a law in 2015 allowing records … [Read more...] about Texas Supreme Court rejects attempts to keep execution drug supplier secret
In a 14-month span, state troopers led seven vehicle chases that resulted in eight deaths — two were uninvolved motorists, and the latest was one of their own lieutenants.No discipline was handed down in any of the seven pursuits as all troopers’ actions were deemed to be within policy by the Department of Public Safety, which oversees the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, according to records.In a recent interview with the Tulsa World, DPS Commissioner Rusty Rhoades said he found “nothing that concerned me” after reviewing trooper actions in those fatal pursuits. Rhoades emphasized that courts have ruled law enforcers aren’t responsible for what violators do in chases.“When you look at the time frame that you just mentioned, there’s no technical reason or operational reason for that,” Rhoades said. “I would also say, you brought seven roughly into that 14-month time frame, remembering there were hundreds of pursuits in that time … [Read more...] about Seven Oklahoma Highway Patrol chases killed eight people.

But she delayed her ruling on the bigger question on whether lawyers for Cohen and Trump could quash at least some of the evidence that FBI agents seized from Cohen last week despite what Trump’s attorney called “the highly politicized, even fevered, atmosphere that envelops this matter.”Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, told the court that Cohen had only three clients — Trump, Elliott Broidy, a prominent Los Angeles-based … [Read more...] about Judge orders Trump lawyer Michael Cohen to reveal a secret client: Sean Hannity
