Yay... Jubilee has been adopted!



About two years ago, a breeder in New Jersey brought a husky to a rescue group, saying he wasn't able to sell her because she was "weird" looking.

The dog — named Jubilee — had an eyelid condition that made her eyes look wide open, as if she was always surprised. The congenital condition didn't affect her vision or her overall health.

Jubilee settled in at Husky House in Matawan, New Jersey, stirring up little interest and no applications. But last week, the rescue group put out a plea for the sweet girl.

"My name is Jubilee. I'm a 4 year old female husky who has been with Husky House for a long time. I came from a 'breeder' who couldn't sell me because he said I was 'weird' looking. Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don't know why I don't look like them," said the heartbreaking Facebook post. "I wish I was beautiful so someone would want me to be their dog."

The Facebook post was shared nearly 50,000 times, and the applications started to pour in.

"Since her original Facebook post had gone viral, we received an overwhelming amount of love, support and inquiries," a Husky House representative tells MNN. "We are so happy to see that everyone feels she is as wonderful as we always knew she was. The responses have been, overall, very positive."

A Sketch Artist's View of the Impeachment Trial

Because no photos or videos are allowed to be taken in the Senate chamber, the public’s only view of the Senate floor is a feed provided to C-Span from cameras that are operated by government employees.

That is, unless someone seated in the gallery can draw.

Art Lien is a courtroom sketch artist who has primarily covered the Supreme Court — another body that does not allow cameras — since 1976. But for the extent of the impeachment trial of President Trump, Mr. Lien will be walking across the street to the Capitol to capture moments that we might not see on television.

This is a frightening sign of decay in our institution-a fedl judge's order is ignored.

This is a frightening sign of decay in our institution-a fedl judge's order is ignored. The judge gives up. The founders gave us 3 branches of govt, a system of checks & balances. If the judicial & legislative branches no longer check the executive, the republic is lost.

An Iranian student planning to attend Northeastern University was removed from the country overnight Monday in defiance of a court order, his lawyer said, and a federal judge said Monday there was nothing that he could immediately do.

Mohammad Shahab Dehghani Hossein, 24, had been detained by Customs and Border Protection at Logan International Airport since arriving in the US on Sunday. Hossein’s lawyers filed an emergency petition to block his removal Monday night, and Judge Allison D. Burroughs ordered a 48-hour stay.

But before that hearing took place, Hossein was flown to France, one of his lawyers, Susan Church, said Tuesday.

Kerry Doyle, one of Hossein’s lawyers, called his removal “an outrage. ... There seems to be some

At the scheduled hearing Tuesday morning, Judge Richard Stearns said the case was now moot, since the student was already out of the country.

“There seems to be some history of CBP ignoring district court orders, which should concern the court,” Doyle said during the hearing. She asked that Hossein be returned to the US, but the judge said there was little he could do now that the student was gone.

“I don’t think they’re going to listen to me," Stearns said.

Connie Schultz: I snapped this photo of @SenSherrodBrown in the wee hours of December 24, 2009...

1/ I snapped this photo of @SenSherrodBrown in the wee hours of December 24, 2009, as he walked through the Rotunda to the Senate floor to cast his vote for the Affordable Care Act. He had asked that I be with him, but he was alone with his thoughts as he walked into history.

2/ I stood back for a moment, taking in the loneliness of leadership. In the end, each senator stands alone. How they vote determines how America remembers them. There is no revision for cowardice.

For some reason, I haven't been invited to Davos this year. Was it something I said? 🤔

Schiff says on ABC the National Security Agency is starting to “withhold documents” on Ukraine from the House, saying the documents could be relevant in the Senate trial. There are “signs the CIA may be on the same tragic course,” Schiff said.

Schiff also confirmed that Intelligence Committee officials are resisting testifying at an annual open hearing on worldwide threats for fear of “angering the president”

A second horse has died at Santa Anita Park since the beginning of the year

Source: CNN

(CNN)A 6-year-old horse was euthanized at Santa Anita Park on Friday, the second horse to die at the famed California racetrack this year.

The horse named Harliss suffered a "fractured right front ankle," Santa Anita Park officials posted on the track's website. The horse was euthanized "per recommendation" of a veterinarian.

"Santa Anita remains committed to transparency," Santa Anita Park told CNN in a statement. "Horses raced or trained at Santa Anita Park more than 420,000 times over the last year with a 99.991% safety rate."

The incident comes weeks after another horse, 4-year-old Golden Birthday, was injured during a race, becoming the first horse to die at the racetrack in 2020.
