They had walked that once innocuous stretch of sidewalk side-by-side so many times. Every Friday, Yasir Amin and his dad had ambled along the path toward the mosque where they prayed together in peace, a routine so serene and so ordinary that Amin was nearly blinded by confusion when the man drove up with the gun. Amin and his father, Muhammad Amin Nasir, were just 200 meters from the Al Noor mosque on Friday when everything went wrong. They had no idea that a white supremacist had just slaughtered at least 41 people inside the mosque's hallowed halls, or that more people would be killed at a second mosque soon after. All they knew was that a car that had been driving by had suddenly stopped. And a man was leaning out the car's window, pointing a gun at them. "RUN!" Amin screamed. The bullets began to fly. The men began to run. But at 67, Nasir couldn't keep up with his 35-year-old son. And so he fell behind, by two or three fateful steps.

As it turns out, landing the AllianceTexas development has paid dividends to the region far beyond what GM was offering with its Saturn plant.30 years of development 2019 marks 30 years since the Alliance Airport opened for business.When Hillwood president Mike Berry started work on Alliance in 1988, there was nothing there. When the groundbreaking was held for the airport, "it was a vast expanse of farmland, wheat fields and cattle," Berry said. "It's been fun to watch the evolution."It's like having a front-row seat to the last 30 years of the evolution of the industrial economy."More than 45 million square feet of buildings have been completed, and Berry said about 10,000 acres remains to be developed at AllianceTexas."We are about 50 percent built out," he said.

iStock: StephanieFrey Almond milk is a creamy-textured, nutty-flavored milk derived from almonds. The plant-based drink is both lactose and cholesterol free, which is excellent news for those who avoid consuming dairy products, particularly the lactose-intolerant and vegans. It’s also gluten free, so gluten-intolerant people need not worry when consuming it, either. Most mass-produced commercial brands have been fortified with important vitamins and minerals and come in a variety of flavors, such as sweetened, unsweetened, vanilla, plain, and chocolate. No wonder people find them so yummy! Almond milk is readily available in your nearby grocery store or supermarket, and you can even make it at home if you have a blender, some water, and almonds on hand.
