Bowden’s late TD pass lifts Kentucky past VTech 37-30

Westlake Legal Group Lynn-Bowden-Jr Bowden's late TD pass lifts Kentucky past VTech 37-30 fox-news/sports/ncaa/virginia-tech-hokies fox-news/sports/ncaa/kentucky-wildcats fox-news/sports/ncaa/college-football-bowl-season fox-news/sports/ncaa-fb fox-news/sports/ncaa fnc/sports fnc f568cff9-c7a4-513a-99ff-4f70b54bee9c Associated Press article

Lynn Bowden Jr. outplayed Virginia Tech all day with his feet.

Then he closed them out with his arm.

“Ya’ll said I couldn’t throw, so over the top it goes,” Bowden joked after the game.

Bowden ran for 233 yards on 34 carries, and then tossed a 13-yard touchdown pass to Josh Ali with 15 seconds left as Kentucky rallied behind its remarkable receiver-turned-quarterback to beat Virginia Tech 37-30 on Tuesday in the Belk Bowl.

Bowden ran for two touchdowns before leading an 18-play, 85-yard game-winning drive that took more than eight minutes off the clock. It ended with Ali getting open down the middle of the end zone.

Bowden, who took over as Kentucky’s quarterback after five games because of injuries, passed for 73 yards on 12 attempts. His rushing day was the biggest in a bowl game since Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel ran for 219 yards vs. Oklahoma in 2013.

Bowden said he never would have believed his final play as a college player would be a touchdown pass to win a bowl game. But a pregame scuffle with Virginia Tech players — in which TV footage showed Bowden apparently throwing a punch — could have written a very different story for the dynamic quarterback.

For two programs that hadn’t met since 1987 — long before anyone on either roster was born – this one got testy before kickoff. Tussles broke out between players during pregame warmups, but officials didn’t levy penalties or warnings for the actions.

“It’s a lot of emotion,” Bowden said. “I could have hurt my team and not been out there (today) with them, so I apologized to my program, my teammates. … We respect Virginia Tech, and if I could go back, I wouldn’t do it. But it’s in the past.”

Wildcats coach Mark Stoops said if Bowden had been the starting quarterback since the beginning of the season he would have been a Heisman Trophy candidate.

“This guy right here is one of the best players in the country,” Stoops said of Bowden, the Paul Hornung Award winner for the nation’s most versatile player. “He showed that. He and I have been talking for years about him playing defensive back. He’s been ready to go in there.”

Hendon Hooker threw for 110 yards and two touchdowns and Deshawn McClease ran for 126 yards and a score to lead the Hokies (8-5).

Kentucky overcame two second-half turnovers by holding Virginia Tech to two field goals and a punt on its final three possessions.

Bowden, the game’s MVP, carried 13 times on the winning drive, converting a fourth down along the way to take a 31-30 lead. The Wildcats (8-5) added a final touchdown as time expired when Jordan Wright returned a failed lateral attempt by the Hokies 28 yards for a score.

“He’s dynamic with the ball in his hands but throwing the ball, that should have been to our advantage when all was said and done,” said Virginia Tech’s long-time defensive coordinator Bud Foster, who ended his coaching career with a loss.

With both Western Kentucky and Louisville winning their bowl games, the state of Kentucky improved to 3-0 on the season.

THE TAKEAWAY

Virginia Tech: The Hokies lose only five senior starters, all on defense. Their offensive line is all freshman and sophomores, a good sign for continuity. Hooker is a junior.

Kentucky: The Wildcats will have to replace Bowden, the team’s third starting quarterback this season. Bowden also finished as the team’s leading receiver, despite playing quarterback for the final eight games.

JUST ENOUGH

Brian Johnson’s career-best 54-yard field goal took a while getting there. On Virginia Tech’s opening drive, Johnson connected on a kick that had plenty of hang time – and cleared the crossbar by no more than 2 yards.

RIGHT ON TARGET

Wildcats safety Zach Johnson closed the first quarter with a massive hit on punt returner Hezekiah Grimsley, meeting him a split second after the Grimsley fielded the kick. Johnson jumped up and made an archer’s gesture toward Kentucky fans in the end zone.

ONE FOR BUD

Hokies coach Justin Fuente was asked to sum up the legacy of Foster, who is retiring after 32 seasons.

“I wish I was eloquent enough,” Fuente said. “He’s a Hall of Fame football coach, and not because he knows when to blitz. It’s because he knows how to handle people and he’s passionate about his work.”

UP NEXT:

Virginia Tech: Host Liberty on Sept. 5.

Kentucky: Host Eastern Michigan on Sept. 5.

Cal Thomas: Why does socialism continues to seduce Americans? THIS is the surprising reason

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6118443883001_6118442157001-vs Cal Thomas: Why does socialism continues to seduce Americans? THIS is the surprising reason Tribune Media Services fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc Cal Thomas c464c0e3-14fe-5365-974d-4dc002fb90d9 article

Like swallows returning to Capistrano, socialism makes an appearance on a regular cycle.

The current presidential campaign features self-confessed socialist Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who doesn’t self-describe as a socialist, but whose policies closely resemble those of Sanders.

Sanders has the luxury of condemning millionaires and billionaires from his comfortable life as a multi-millionaire. As Forbes magazine has reported, “Sanders … has amassed an estimated $2.5 million fortune from real estate, investments, government pensions — and earnings from three books.” Sanders is also quoted, “I wrote a bestselling book. If you write a bestselling book, you can be a millionaire, too.”

SANDERS REJECTS BIDEN’S OPENNESS TO BIPARTISAN TICKET: ‘I WILL NOT HAVE A REPUBLICAN AS A VICE PRESIDENT’

Sanders appears to favor capitalism for himself, but he’s against it for everyone else.

Socialism is a false doctrine. It sells itself to new generations who know little about it. They promote it by promising “free stuff,” along with envy of the successful.

Why does socialism continue to have appeal in America? Part of the reason is adherents claim it is fairer than capitalism. It isn’t fair, socialists say, that some people make more money than others.

Socialism and its twin sister liberalism have always been about feelings, rather than outcome.

That so many liberal programs have failed to achieve stated objectives does not matter to the left. Apparently, it is intent, not success, that counts. When liberals or socialists fail, they simply go on to new errors.

Amity Shlaes has written a new book about socialism’s appeal and how on several occasions we have come close to embracing it. It’s called “Great Society: A New History.”

Socialism and its twin sister liberalism have always been about feelings, rather than outcome.

President Lyndon Johnson promised to end poverty in America, but Shlaes writes, “After the 1960s, official poverty stabilized at 10 to 15 percent. In fact, what the War on Poverty and the new flood of benefits DID do was the opposite of prevent — they established a new kind of poverty, a permanent sense of downtroddenness. They washed away hope.”

In another example of the private economy working better than one centered in Washington, she notes that 50 years ago, “McDonald’s employed more young men than the U.S. Army.”

That company, along with others like Starbucks not only need more employees, they offer advancement to management positions and in some cases free college tuition.

These are far better paths to success and independence than government programs, which often sustain people in their poverty — and thus make them more dependent on government and politicians who want their votes.

Just as New Deal programs exceeded their usefulness after the Great Depression (but manage to enjoy a type of eternal life), so, too, have the Great Society programs. Why don’t people know this? “Nothing is new, it is just forgotten,” goes the adage.

More from Opinion

Shlaes writes: “The public didn’t understand that the freedom of markets was necessary to make companies like (General Electric) grow. America was, through its own social welfare measures, gradually heading toward socialism, and Americans didn’t even know it.” She adds, “Just as the 1960s forgot the failures of the 1930s, we today forget the failures of the 1960s. Part of the trouble is what schoolbooks and history books omit.”

As with much of the media, bias is not only expressed in how and what is covered, but even more in what is omitted.

Count on modern history textbooks to recall America’s “original sin,” slavery, a stain that can never be allowed to go away, rather than the much-improved lives and jobs experienced by contemporary African-Americans.

If neither Sanders nor Warren become president, that won’t mean socialism will have lost. There’s another generation not yet born that could likely be seduced by it.

10 ways to secure any tech you unwrapped this holiday season

Years ago, our biggest tech worries were computer glitches, dead batteries and seriously slow internet.

Now? Hackers can hold our data for ransom, cybercriminals sell our private info on the Dark Web and it’s easy for just about anyone to find out way too much about you online. Tap or click to remove yourself from a creepy people search site right now.

That means the new phone, tablet, computer, smart speaker or even TV you unwrapped for Christmas is a potential in for clever crooks. Did you do everything you need to to protect your shiny new gadgets?

Just about every connected device needs more than just the basic start up steps, and setting up your tech improperly can be dangerous for your privacy and security. Tap or click here for the very first thing you need to do with your new iPad.

No matter what you received this holiday season, there are some basic steps you can take to ensure you and your tech are protected.

1. Stay on top of updates

This one should go without saying, but it’s always worth repeating. Hackers are relentless when it comes to designing tools and methods to steal our information.

When a bug or a security flaw is discovered, you can bet hackers will be all over it like flies on honey.

That’s why updating software and firmware is critical to safeguarding your devices and data.

When vulnerabilities are found, software and hardware developers work quickly to patch them so customers stay safe. Ignoring these updates means leaving holes in your system for hackers to get in.

Still using Windows 7? Microsoft is ending support in very soon. Tap or click here to learn how to upgrade to Windows 10.

2. Make it official

This will be more specific to each device, but it’s always worth visiting your product’s official website and registering it with the manufacturer. This lets them know who bought the product and shows you what warranty services are available and what support options the company can provide.

It can also help you recoup your device in the event it fails, a hacker takes over or worse.

Because each product has a different process, it’s a good idea to check the user manual to see if any product registration info is available. Can’t find yours? Tap or click here to access thousands of user manuals online for free.

3. Don’t wait until it’s too late

When you get a new device, don’t just start fresh. Back up and transfer your old data to your new gadget.

Accidents happen, but when data is lost you can’t piece it back together again. A detailed backup is one of the most important things you can do with your tech.

Whether it’s a smartphone, tablet, laptop or video game console, creating a backup will preserve your private data in the event of a disaster and can help you pick back up again — even if you move to a new device.

Plus, if your backup is secure, threats like ransomware become meaningless. Always back up your data no matter what.

Tap or click to see 5 critical steps for backing up your data.

4. Prepare for emergencies

Smartphones and tablets give you the tools to communicate with anyone, no matter where you are. That’s why it’s vital to add your emergency contacts in case disaster strikes.

When you add emergency contacts to your phone, odds are they’ll be mixed in with your regular ones.

There’s no special marker or process to make them “emergency contacts,” so make them stand out as

VIPs on your device and set them as Favorites for speed-dial access.

On iPhone, simply open the Phone app and tap Favorites on the bottom left corner of the screen. Then tap the + icon in the upper left corner and select your preferred emergency contacts.

On Android, open the Phone app and tap Favorites in the bottom left corner. Then, tap Add on the top right corner of your screen and select the contacts you wish to add to your favorites. You can also add any contact to Favorites from within the Contacts app by tapping the star icon in the upper right corner.

5. Lock down your accounts the right way

Weak passwords are the bane of cybersecurity experts everywhere. In fact, they’re one of the top causes for hacks globally, and millions of bad passwords are already on record for hackers to use and abuse. Tap or click to see how bad passwords led to millions of stolen accounts ending up on the Dark Web.

Despite the urgency, it’s not super difficult to create strong passwords — but it requires some creativity. Avoid using your own name or simple, common expressions that others would guess easily. Include numbers that aren’t personal to you and consider substituting letters with numbers.

Tap or click here for even more tips to make stronger passwords.

6. Stop your new smart TV from spying on you

Smart TVs are hot gifts everyone loves, but did you know there’s someone behind the scenes watching your viewing habits? Smart TVs deploy a feature called ACR or Automatic Content Recognition.

ACR scans the programs you watch and sends the data back to streaming services and marketing firms so they can advertise to you. This is annoying and intrusive and also one of the reasons smart TVs are so cheap nowadays.

Fortunately, you can disable this feature. The steps will be different for every brand. Tap or click here to shut out advertisers on your smart TV.

7. ‘Alexa, delete’

A huge scandal erupted when it was revealed Amazon was recording users and transcribing the data. But it’s far from the only company doing this. Google and Facebook are equally guilty of relying on user recordings to improve their respective AI.

Fortunately, each of these platforms offers a method to disable or remove recordings at your convenience, but most users aren’t aware of how to do it. These companies are banking on that for the sake of their software development, but there are multiple ways to configure your smart speakers for maximum privacy. Tap or click here to learn how to optimize your Echo, Facebook Portal and Google Home for privacy.

 

8. Goodbye, neighbor

Thanks to Ring Video Doorbells, Amazon now controls one of the nation’s largest surveillance systems — and people willingly paid for it.

But the biggest risk Ring users face is potentially revealing their home or office locations through Ring’s built-in Neighbors social network. Tap or click for details on what you’re really sharing if you have a Ring system.

If you make a post to Neighbors, that alert is publicly visible and can be shared with everyone from law enforcement to dedicated snoops. If you avoid posting to Neighbors, you will enjoy more privacy along with your Ring doorbell.

9. Take control of your privacy

Just like smart TVs, streaming devices keep tabs on your viewing experience to better target you with ads and marketing. Fortunately, you can turn this off no matter which brand you use.

  • Roku: Open Settings, then Privacy, followed by Advertising and check the Limit ad tracking option.
  • Apple TV: Open Settings, then General, followed by Privacy and turn the Limit Ad Tracking option on.
  • Amazon Fire TV Stick: Open Settings, then Preference, followed by Privacy Settings and turn off the Interest-based Ads option.

This will limit your device’s ability to track your viewing habits and will keep your private media time between you and your family.

10. Cut the bloat

Mac users are lucky. Unlike PC folks, they don’t have to worry about useless bloatware apps that come packaged from the manufacturer (unless, of course, you really hate the built-in Calculator and Calendar apps on MacOS).

Thankfully, Windows 10 features a settings menu that lets you pick and choose the apps you want to keep on your system, making it easy to eliminate programs you’ll never use. Tap or click here to say goodbye to ad-filled games and boring productivity suites.

PRO TIP: Whatever you do, hang on to that box!

This is an unsung bit of holiday advice, but it can potentially save you hundreds of dollars when things don’t quite go as expected.

When returning any item, the box is the second most important thing to hang on to besides the receipt. Many stores won’t even accept returns without it, and keeping the box gives you a handy storage container in case you need to put your gadget away.

Plus, boxes for tech gear tends to contain important information like serial numbers and product codes — both of which are necessary to register your product and get tech support.

Plus, if you ever sell your device secondhand, having a box adds more value to your product and can help put even more money in your pocket when it’s time to recycle.

BONUS TIP FOR EXTRA KNOW-HOW: Quick fixes to speed up your slow Android phone

You’re starting to notice your Android phone is lagging, but you still have some time before you’re due for an upgrade. Do you have to bite the bullet and buy a new phone at full price? Definitely not — there are many reasons your phone could be moving slowly, and you should rule those out first.

Check out reasons your Android phone might be running slow, and find the solutions to fix the problems. No, you won’t have to empty your wallet or spend hours doing it.

Ben Shapiro: Anti-Semitism is on the rise but the left (and its media allies) play a dangerous game

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6119030949001_6119028398001-vs Ben Shapiro: Anti-Semitism is on the rise but the left (and its media allies) play a dangerous game fox-news/topic/anti-semitism fox-news/person/bill-de-blasio fox-news/person/andrew-cuomo fox-news/opinion fnc/opinion fnc Creators Syndicate Ben Shapiro article 63874783-599a-597f-8c9f-3f87fe46ca36

In October 2018, during Sabbath morning services, a white supremacist attacked the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, murdering 11 people and wounding another six. In April 2019, in the middle of Passover, a white supremacist attacked the Chabad of Poway synagogue, murdering one person and seriously wounding another three. Both incidents started absolutely necessary conversations about the prevalence and nature of the white supremacist threat to Jews across the country.

Four people were murdered at a kosher supermarket in Jersey City by self-described Black Hebrew Israelites just weeks ago; five people were stabbed at a Hanukkah celebration in Monsey, New York; this week alone, New York police are investigating at least nine anti-Semitic attacks.

The upsurge of violence against Jews in New York, in particular, has finally prompted commentary from Democratic politicians ranging from New York Mayor Bill De Blasio, who just weeks ago expressed shock at anti-Semitism reaching “the doorstep of New York City,” to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who expressed puzzlement at the attacks, noting broadly: “This is an intolerant time in our country. We see anger; we see hatred exploding.”

DEMS RUSH TO BLAME TRUMP FOR ANTI-SEMITIC VIOLENCE

This isn’t new. Back in 2018, The New York Times admitted there was a massive spike in anti-Semitic attacks in the city — and even acknowledged that the newspaper of record had failed to cover that surging anti-Semitism because “it refuses to conform to an easy narrative with a single ideological enemy.” But that has always been true of anti-Semitism. It’s possible, as The Times should recognize, to walk and chew gum at the same time in covering anti-Semitism.

More from Opinion

But it’s not a mere lack of focus and time preventing the media from taking anti-Semitism in New York seriously. It’s the identity of the attackers. Armin Rosen wrote for Tablet Magazine back in July 2019 about the Jew-hatred in New York and correctly noted “that the victims are most often outwardly identifiable, i.e., religious rather than secularized Jews, and the perpetrators who have been recorded on CCTV cameras are overwhelmingly black and Hispanic.”

This throws the media — and many left-leaning Jewish organizations — into spasms of confusion, since it cuts directly against the supposed alliance of intersectionality so beloved by the political left. White supremacists attacking left-leaning Jews fits a desired narrative. Black teenagers beating up Hasidic Jews in Williamsburg doesn’t.

And so the left ignores the “wrong” type of anti-Semitism.

Anti-Semitism grows when the victims become secondary and the perpetrators become primary. If you’re only concerned about anti-Semitism from white supremacists but utterly blithe about Jews being beaten in the streets of one of the nation’s largest cities by suspects who clearly are not white supremacists, you’re part of the problem.

The same media that will ask whether President Donald Trump’s executive orders designed to protect Jews on campus are “ackshually” anti-Semitic will ignore the fact that former President Obama sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years — the same Jeremiah Wright who railed against Jews and Israel routinely during those years; who said Jews kept Obama from talking with him after the election; and who avers that “Jesus was a Palestinian.”

Democratic candidates who suggest that Trump has emboldened anti-Semites will make pilgrimage to Rev. Al Sharpton, who was instrumental in not one but two anti-Semitic riots.

The same commentators who will police Republican references to George Soros for hints of anti-Semitism completely excuse open anti-Semitism when it comes from Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

It’s deemed completely vital by our intelligentsia to survey white Americans for signs of white supremacy and, by extension, signs of anti-Semitism. Those same intelligentsia will patently ignore the fact that anti-Semitic attitudes among black Americans far outweigh similar attitudes among other racial groups, according to repeated polling by the Anti-Defamation League.

Anti-Semitism grows when the victims become secondary and the perpetrators become primary. If you’re only concerned about anti-Semitism from white supremacists but utterly blithe about Jews being beaten in the streets of one of the nation’s largest cities by suspects who clearly are not white supremacists, you’re part of the problem. And that goes for those who govern New York, from De Blasio to Cuomo.

Nutritionists Pick The Best Salads From The Major Salad Chains

Not all salads are good for you.

It’s comforting to imagine that anything served on a bed of lettuce will inevitably be good for you, but that’s not the case. What’s in your next salad can determine whether it’s filled with antioxidants or just empty calories. To help you choose a healthy meal the next time you go out to eat, we spoke to three nutritionists about the healthiest salad on the menus at national fast-casual chains that specialize in green-filled plates, including Sweetgreen, Panera and more.

Sweetgreen: Guacamole Greens Salad

Westlake Legal Group 5dfbb49a250000c77bd30c16 Nutritionists Pick The Best Salads From The Major Salad Chains

Sweetgreen

This salad starts with a base of organic mesclun (a variety of greens, including arugula and endive) and also features avocado, tomatoes and roasted chicken. “The avocado is a heart-healthy fat containing vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber,” said registered dietician Jenna Appel. “The chicken adds a quality source of protein while the tomatoes, greens and avocado add micronutrients and antioxidants.”

Don’t worry, it tastes delicious too, as the salad also features red onion, tortilla chips and a fresh lime squeeze. Appel also liked its carb-to-protein ratio (27 grams total carbs to 26 grams protein) and 11 grams of dietary fiber, which is important to keep you feeling full. It comes with a lime cilantro jalapeno vinaigrette that adds 140 calories per serving. “While Sweetgreen uses a vinaigrette-based dressing, if you’re watching your calorie intake, opt to get the dressing on the side and use the fork dip method,” she said.

Chopt: The Orchard Salad

Westlake Legal Group 5dfbb83d240000e70c5a3dc3 Nutritionists Pick The Best Salads From The Major Salad Chains

Chopt

Order The Orchard at Chopt, and you’ll be poking your fork into a blend of greens, including lacinato and baby kale, spinach, wild arugula and Napa cabbage. It’s then topped with local goat cheese, seasonal apples, walnuts and romaine lettuce. “I like that this salad includes local and seasonal ingredients along with a blend of greens,” Appel said.

Appel dug into the nutritional info and highlighted a few key areas. “It has a whopping 44 grams of protein per serving,” she said. “If you’re watching your carb intake, this salad also happens to be one of the lower carb options (21 grams).” She also liked that the salad includes walnuts, which provide healthy fats that are rich in omega-3s and antioxidants. She did note that if you’re watching your calorie intake (The Orchard has 600 calories), there are simple steps to reduce calories in this meal. For one, pass on the bread that comes with the salad, order the dressing on the side and halve the goat cheese or walnut portions, each of which saves you approximately 90 and 100 calories, respectively.

Tender Greens: Chipotle Barbecue Chicken

If you’re a fan of the Sweetgreen Guacamole Greens Salad, we’ve got some good news for you: this salad at Tender Greens has many of the same ingredients. The Chipotle Barbecue Chicken salad has a base of romaine lettuce and includes the aforementioned chipotle BBQ chicken, avocado, cotija cheese, tortilla strips, green onion and radishes, all topped with a cilantro lime dressing.

Registered dietician Julie Cunningham flagged this salad as one of the healthiest for what it doesn’t include: sodium (790 milligrams) and calories (610). “This salad has the least amount of sodium among the salads at Tender Greens, as well as the next-to-least amount of calories,” Cunningham said. She singled out two ingredients in particular as being healthy, the protein-packed chicken and avocado, which she said provides heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.

Honeygrow: Walnut St. Noodle

Honeygrow

Honeygrow was founded in Philadelphia, where Walnut St. is a main thoroughfare. But the salad also has actual walnuts in it! In fact, not only are there roasted walnuts, there’s a walnut lemon dressing. That’s in addition to its whole wheat noodles, organic arugula, mushrooms, roasted broccoli and parmesan crisps.

Cunningham gave the salad a thumbs up for whole grains in the noodles (the salad has 3 grams dietary fiber), the antioxidant-rich broccoli and walnuts, which contain monounsaturated fat. She also liked its nutritional profile. “It’s the lowest in calories (560) and sodium (830 milligrams) among the menu options,” Cunningham said. For instance, the restaurant’s Cobb Salad has nearly double the amount of calories (900) and sodium (1,640 milligrams), making the Walnut St. Noodle your best bet.

Panera: Asian Sesame Salad with Chicken

Panera

For a chain that already offers a huge selection of pastas, soups and sandwiches, it’s impressive that it also features 10 salads. The Asian Sesame Salad with Chicken is a relatively simple one: a bed of romaine topped with chicken, cilantro, toasted almonds, sesame seeds and wonton strips alongside an Asian sesame vinaigrette.

Registered dietician nutritionist Allison Knott waded through all of Panera’s options and liked this one for its saturated fat and low sodium content. “Modern Greek with Quinoa has 8 grams of saturated fat, while the Asian Sesame Chicken has 3 grams of saturated fat,” Knott told HuffPost. “Some [Panera] salads have has much as 1,180 milligrams sodium, or about half of what most healthy adults should consume in a day.” Knott likes the Asian Sesame Chicken because it has 540 milligrams of sodium, which will help reduce your total sodium intake while dining at Panera. She also advised that while the salad’s 410 calories and 32 grams of protein will fulfill many people’s nutritional needs, if you’re looking to add fiber, tossing in cucumber, kale or tomato can help.

Mad Greens: Pancho Villa Salad

Mad Greens

Elote is not a stereotypically healthy dish, as it can include mayo, Mexican crema and cotija cheese atop an ear of corn. But the Pancho Villa Salad at Mad Greens shows you can still eat healthy while enjoying similar flavors, as it includes mixed greens, quinoa, roasted corn, seasoned pumpkin seeds, avocado, Southwestern chicken and a cilantro chili lime dressing.

Not many folks get excited for meals with a ton of fiber content, but those folks definitely aren’t nutritionists, who love fiber. (And there are plenty of reasons why.) “One bonus of this salad is that it has 11 grams of fiber ― over 40% of the daily recommended intake for most healthy people,” Knott said, adding that these nutritional facts are based on ordering the Pancho Villa with light dressing. “Combine the higher fiber with a significant amount of protein (42 grams) and this salad is likely to fill you up and keep you full.” Not only that, she liked the serving of whole grains in the quinoa and unsaturated fats from pumpkin seeds and avocado.

Bernie Sanders announces massive October-December campaign cash haul

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign announced early Thursday that the populist firebrand from Vermont raised over $34.5 million over the past three months.

The eye-popping October-December fourth-quarter haul was $9 million more than Sanders brought in during the July-September period – and the largest quarterly figure to date for any of the Democrats seeking the White House this year.

The massive fundraising report came as Sanders – who’s making his second straight bid for the presidential nomination – has surged in national and early-voting-state polling the past two months.

SANDERS, IN IOWA, DANCES HIS WAY INTO 2020

The senator’s staffers said that they received over 1.8 million donations during the final three months of 2019, including contributions from 40,000 new donors that were received on New Year’s Eve, the final day of the fourth quarter. They added that the independent senator hauled in over $18 million in December from over 900,000 contributions, his best single month of fundraising.

“Bernie Sanders is closing the year with the most donations of any candidate in history at this point in a presidential campaign,” campaign manager Faiz Shakir touted.

“He is proving each and every day that working-class Americans are ready and willing to fully fund a campaign that stands up for them and takes on the biggest corporations and the wealthy. You build a grassroots movement to beat Donald Trump and create a political revolution one $18 donation at a time, and that’s exactly why Bernie is going to win,” Shakir emphasized.

Sanders, along with fellow progressive standard-bearer Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, has been eschewing big bucks fundraisers from top-dollar donors, fueling his campaign solely with small-dollar and grassroots contributions.

The campaign noted that Sanders has raised over $96 million from over 5 million individual donations since he launched his campaign. The team added that the average contribution was $18 – and over 99.9 percent of donors have not maxed out and could contribute again. The Sanders campaign added that the overall haul did not include an additional $12.7 million the senator transferred from his other federal fundraising accounts, including his 2018 Senate re-election campaign.

BUTTIGIEG BRINGS IN NEARLY $25 MILLION IN FINAL THREE MONTHS OF THE YEAR

The unveiling of Sanders’ numbers came one day after Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign announced that the now-former South Bend, Ind., mayor brought in over $24.7 million in campaign cash the past three months.

The haul by Buttigieg was roughly equal to the $24.8 million he raised in the April-June second quarter, when he outpaced the large field of White House hopefuls. Buttigieg’s fundraising dipped in the third quarter, when he brought in $19.1 million. His campaign touted that the fourth quarter haul brought his total amount raised since he launched his campaign early in 2019 to over $76 million.

Buttigieg – once the longest of long shots – has soared to top-tier status for the nomination, joining former Vice President Joe Biden, Sanders and Warren, largely due to his fundraising prowess and surge in polls in the early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 CAMPAIGN

Campaigns aiming to showcase their fundraising figures have been blasting out their fourth-quarter numbers this week, with campaigns seeing lackluster cash hauls likely waiting until the end of January deadline to report their figures to the Federal Election Commission.

One of those candidates who may wait is Warren. The senator may experience a dip in campaign contributions as she deals with an edging down of her support in national and early-voting-state polls.

Warren raised nearly $25 million in the third quarter but appeared to be scrambling to reach $20 million in the fourth, as her campaign made the unusual move of releasing its total to date early in order to drum up more cash.

“So far this quarter, we’ve raised a little over $17 million. That’s a good chunk behind where we were at this time last quarter,” an email sent Friday from the Warren campaign read. “Elizabeth Warren needs your help. Right now. The goal is $20 million for the quarter — that’s how much the campaign needs to keep our plans on track.”

Biden will likely enjoy a fundraising boost in the fourth quarter, after a relatively dismal July-September haul – when he brought in just $15 million.

“We have the chance to make Q4 our biggest fundraising quarter yet. That would certainly be a big deal,” the former vice president said Sunday in a fundraising email to supporters.

Biden’s best fundraising quarter to date was the April-June period, when he brought in $21.5 million in the nine weeks after he declared his candidacy in late-April.

Tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang – a long shot for the nomination who’s risen in the polls and consistently made the debate stage – said he’ll top his $10 million third-quarter haul, which was his best to date. His campaign estimated it would bring in $12.5 million in the fourth quarter.

But, Yang told Fox News in New Hampshire on Tuesday that he’ll top that estimate. “We’re going to top that,” he said as he laughed. “We softballed it a little bit.”

The candidate also said his fundraising figures showed that his “campaign’s growing very, very quickly, growing faster than any other campaign in the field.”

Yang’s campaign staffers announced Wednesday that they brought in $1.3 million on New Year’s Eve, which they said was their single best day of fundraising.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s campaign announced Wednesday that the congresswoman from Hawaii raised $3.4 million in the final three months of 2019, slightly higher than her third-quarter haul.

Campaign cash, along with public opinion polling, has been a crucial barometer of a candidate’s popularity and a campaign’s strength. Fundraising dollars could be used to run TV, radio and digital ads, beef up grassroots voter outreach and build up staff. And, the fourth-quarter fundraising figures – the last quarterly report before Iowa kicks off the primary and caucus presidential nominating calendar on Feb. 3 – will be scrutinized heavily by political pundits.

SUV drives off California cliff — but neither vehicle nor occupants has been found, authorities say

A California motorist shared a shocking video appearing to show the moment another vehicle went off a cliff Monday along Highway 1 in San Mateo County, south of San Francisco, according to a report.

The footage, which was released by the county sheriff’s office, shows a dark-colored vehicle suddenly enter camera view before driving off the cliff without appearing to slow down, The Mercury News of San Jose reported.

Amazingly, the car becomes airborne momentarily before disappearing from view, the newspaper reported.

CALIFORNIA EXODUS COULD LEAD TO STATE LOSING CONGRESSIONAL SEAT, CENSUS ESTIMATES FIND

A witness heading south on the highway reported seeing an SUV traveling north speed off the cliff at approximately 11 a.m. Monday. A subsequent search by CalFire, the California Highway Patrol, the San Mateo County Fire Department and the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office ensued for the vehicle and driver in water up to 40 feet deep.

Rescue workers did report finding tire tracks on the cliff and auto parts in the water, but were unable to determine if the parts were related to Monday’s crash, The Mercury News reported.

As of Wednesday afternoon, rescue workers were unable to find either the vehicle or any occupants.

In addition, search efforts were suspended Monday by a high surf advisory and had not resumed as of Wednesday afternoon, said Bert Diaz, a California Highway Patrol public information officer.

“The conditions are just too dangerous for them to continue a search,” he said Wednesday, “and that’s expected today and for the next couple days as well.”
