LOS ANGELES (AP) — Albert Pujols seemed like a long shot in early August to reach 700 home runs, still more than a dozen swings from the hallowed mark and his power stroke all but gone. Or so it appeared. Now showing the pop of his youth in the final weeks of his career, the 42-year-old slugger got there with two long shots. Pujols hit his 700th home run, connecting for his second drive of the game and becoming the fourth player in major league history to make it to the milestone as the St. Louis Cardinals routed the Los Angeles Dodgers 11-0 Friday night. Pujols joined Barry Bonds (762 homers), Hank Aaron (755) and Babe Ruth (714) in one of baseball’s most exclusive clubs. This is a carousel.

Republican state Sen. Robert Nichols of Jacksonville said Friday that he’d support a change to Texas’ abortion laws to allow victims of rape to legally obtain the procedure. “If I get a chance to vote for an exception to rape, I will vote yes,” the East Texas senator said during a panel of Republican lawmakers at the 2022 Texas Tribune Festival. “I think instead of us telling women what to do, we should show our support for women of this state.” Nichols is one of the first anti-abortion lawmakers to say he would support loosening the abortion laws when lawmakers meet in January. Texas has one of the nation’s most restrictive abortion laws, which went into effect after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade — the landmark case that established the legal right to an abortion. Under Texas law, abortions are prohibited in almost all cases, including rape and incest, and are allowed only to save the life of the pregnant person. Texas is competing against private … [Read more...] about Republican Texas senator says he will support new rape exceptions for abortion
Vanarin Kuch grew up in his family’s bakeries in Houston, Texas, watching old episodes of Iron Chef for inspiration. “Being of Cambodian immigrants, my entire family, even to this day, has always owned a doughnut shop — so I’ve kind of always been in the industry, totally illegally working at 13 and 14 frying doughnuts,” he jokes. Kuch went to culinary school and later worked in some of Houston’s best restaurants, including the city’s outpost of Jean-Georges and later at the acclaimed Tiny Boxwoods , where he served for three years as the pastry chef. His work led to a nomination for Food & Wine ’s Best New Pastry Chef, and he also appeared on Top Chef: Just Desserts . A move to New York City led to jobs at fine-dining restaurants Gotham Bar and Grill and Boulud Sud. “Then an opportunity came, and it was pretty much my mom’s scheming way of giving me back to Houston,” he said. “She’s like, ‘I found a really great place. It would be a really good bakery.’ It’s next … [Read more...] about This “Top Chef” Star Is Serving Houston’s Most Playful Pastries
Marco Rubio hopes to sway voters interested in Chick-fil-A, Ram trucks, and Duck Dynasty. John Fetterman is searching for fans of microbreweries, Teslas and the Dave Matthews Band. And Michael Bennet wants to reach people who like Taylor Swift and Lizzo — while avoiding devoted listeners of Jason Aldean. Candidates in some of the highest-profile midterm races are using Facebook and Instagram ad targeting to aim messages at voters based on their music tastes, sports fandoms, shopping destinations and television habits, a CNN review of data from the social media platforms found. The data, which Facebook parent company Meta has started to make public in recent months, provides a snapshot into how political campaigns are slicing and dicing online groups of voters based on very specific interests. And it's a sign that as America grows more politically polarized, the candidates are using cultural icons as proxies for politics. "There are very few things in American culture, … [Read more...] about Political candidates are targeting you on social media based on these interests. Here’s how.
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — In the eyes of Belarus' foreign minister, the root cause of the war in Ukraine dates back 30 years ago to the end of the Cold War. At that time, there was no official treaty — just a “gentlemen’s agreement” that opened a path for the West to secure its domination, in part through the expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Alliance, Vladimir Makei told the U.N. General Assembly on Saturday. “With its drive to enlarge NATO, the West has essentially trampled upon the indivisibility of security, the vital principle, which states that one party must not seek to achieve its own security at the expense of other parties,” he said. Makei said NATO and the West, in their quest to expand eastward, “overlooked the legitimate security interests of both Russia and Belarus." He described NATO’s involvement in what he called “illegal wars” in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya and Syria, “in addition to the Alliance’s attempts to encroach on some historical Eastern Slavic and … [Read more...] about Belarus foreign minister blames NATO, West for Ukraine war
