  • Rams Outlast Buccaneers and Lightning to Win 37-32

    Fred Altieri|Sep 22, 2016

    It boiled down to the last play of the game but the defense prevailed in the red zone as the Los Angeles Rams came away with a much-deserved 37-32 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, September 25, 2016. The game had a strange ending as it was suspended for over an hour due to lightning that moved into the Tampa Bay area with just two minutes remaining and the Rams hanging onto a slim 5-point lead with the ball but facing a 3rd-and-11 situation at their own 5-yard line. The Rams threw a...

The Lakers began flying charter many years ago but they used to fly commercial and one time Hearn...

    Carole Bell|Sep 22, 2016

    Garbage is nothing, right? No value, by definition. Wrong! Let your imagination go swimming: What if garbage had the power to inspire dreams? Garbage is worthless, meaningless. Ah, but we're spoiled, and perhaps have limits to our creativity. Can beauty be cultured to emerge? Favio Chavez saw unlimited possibilities in the garbage of Cateura, a small town in Paraguay next to one of the largest landfills in South America. Cateura's a poor place; people mainly live as gancheros; by scavenging...
