Thanksgiving is a time for friends, family and holiday feasts—but also a time for possible distress for our animal companions. Pets won’t be so thankful if they munch on undercooked turkey or a pet-unfriendly floral arrangement, or if they stumble upon an unattended alcoholic drink.

Check out the following tips for a fulfilling Thanksgiving that your pets can enjoy, too:

  • Talkin’ Turkey: If you decide to feed your pet a small bite of turkey, make sure it’s boneless and well-cooked. Don’t offer her raw or undercooked turkey, which may contain salmonella bacteria. Do not give your pet the left over carcass–the bones can be problematic for the digestive tract.
  • No Bread Dough: Don’t spoil your pet’s holiday by giving him access to raw yeast bread dough. When a dog or cat ingests raw bread dough, the yeast continues to

America’s Dive Bars Are Among Those Hit Hardest by Alex Trebek’s Death

The dive tradition of watching ‘Jeopardy!’ over beers and shots will end with Trebek’s final episode on December 25

As 7 p.m. hit on Monday, the bartender at Do or Dive in Brooklyn killed the music and two ancient black-and-white TVs roared to life, as they do every night at 7. On the screens, Alex Trebek took the Jeopardy! stage from his pre-taped purgatory. “I can’t believe how quickly the year is moving along,” he told the audience. One of the categories in the first round was “Masks.”

A handful of people — after getting their temperatures checked and giving contact-tracing information — sat at the few tables in the narrow bar. One of them, Franco Del Valle, was drinking a Miller High Life and celebrating the last night watching Jeopardy! at Do or Dive almost daily over the past three years; the next day he and his girlfriend were … Read more

Fast-breaks during pre-trial period leave a lot to follow in Kruse case

It’s early in the pre-trial stage for the second attempt to prosecute former Blue Bell Creamries boss Paul Kruse, but the pace is like a fast-starting NBA game. He stands accused — again — of conspiracy and fraud. One motion to dismiss is already pending and another challenges the fitness of the Grand Jury that indicted Kruse.

As expected, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has filed its written arguments opposing the defense motion to dismiss the indictment as barred by the statute of limitations.

The defense first got the charges against Kruse dismissed on July 15, 2020, because they were brought by information, not by a Grand Jury indictment. The government says it was within the statute of limitations when first filed on May 1, 2020.

Dismissal, according to DOJ, “triggered a six-month statutory tolling period. A grand jury returned an indictment on the same seven felony counts on … Read more
