As a member of Congress more than a decade ago, Mike Pence unveiled an immigration proposal offering a chance for legal status to people who had come to the country illegally. Hardline conservative activists were furious.Story Continued Below Tom Tancredo, then a firebrand Republican congressman from Colorado, called the vice president’s proposal both “amnesty” and “an atrocity”: A political action committee he co-founded set up a running “Pence Watch” online. The populist pundit Pat Buchanan likened Pence’s call for “a principled consensus on immigration reform” to a betrayal from “The Godfather” and said it could mean “the end of Mike Pence as a rising star of the GOP.” Pence’s 2006 plan, which he insisted did not amount to amnesty for immigrants in the country illegally, died quietly and has been mostly forgotten in Washington. But not by those hawkish advocates, who suspect that Pence is … [Read more...] about Immigration activists stew over Pence’s role on immigration plan

.......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... .......... ..........If you are dealing with symptoms such as hives or bloating, you may suspect a food allergy or sensitivity. But how can you determine which foods are causing the reactions? There are so many food allergy and sensitivity tests available, it can be difficult to figure out where to start. But with the right methods and doctor involved, you can often zero in on the problem. Food allergies are much too serious to assess without an expert. Your best bet is to work with a board-certified allergist, who will perform skin-prick tests and IgE blood tests to narrow down a diagnosis. (Jim Thompson/Albuquerque Journal)If you search online for “food allergy testing,” you’ll find options including clinical visits with allergists and immunologists and do-it-yourself test kits that claim to … [Read more...] about Allergy or sensitivity?
IN the early-hours chill, a small posse of neighbours pick out the beady eyes of intruders by torchlight. The citizens’ patrol, tired of police inaction on their streets, have chanced upon two possibly dangerous suspected villains. Insisting they are not vigilantes, taxi driver Stephen Picton tells me about the Thursday night encounter: “One was perched on the awning above the front door of a house. “I thought he was going to break in. The other was keeping watch. I was worried they may have weapons.” Renowned locally for his charity work, Stephen — one of three volunteers on the 1.30am patrol — says he shone his light in the perched intruder’s face as a pal rang the cops. In the darkness, Stephen told the suspects: “You’ve got ten seconds to get your a**es out of here. I know what you look like now. Do one.” For here in Hartlepool, folk have begun taking the law into their own hands. This week the gritty North Sea port was … [Read more...] about On patrol with the Hartlepool residents looking after their own streets ‘because the police have given up’

She had dreamed for years of opening this little shop. Since immigrating to America from the Dominican Republic, in 2010, she had picked up extra waitress shifts whenever she could, tucking away every spare dollar she earned. When at last she was ready, and had found a space she could afford to rent, Bautista and her friend and business partner, Deya Garcia, worked night after night to make it beautiful.They retiled the floor, replastered the walls and painted them a pale celestial blue, hung blue wallpaper scrolled with delicate gold. They painted the ceiling, balancing on ladders, and painstakingly assembled new … [Read more...] about Lawrence businesses fight for survival as gas remains shut off
