TUCKER CARLSON: The US would never recover from the destruction of the justice system over TrumpOn March 21, 2023
Fox News host Tucker Carlson shreds Alvin Bragg fo… Read more
The dominant rumor on the internet over the weekend was that Donald Trump will soon be indicted, possibly even handcuffed, on camera. Is that true? We can't say.
We do know that Trump is the subject of a grand jury investigation in Manhattan. That's a city that voted against Donald Trump by almost 80% in the last presidential election. We also know that the grand jury was impaneled by a Soros funded D.A. called Alvin Bragg, who looks and acts like a Tawana Brawley-era Al Sharpton. So, we would assume, on the basis of that evidence, that it's pretty likely Trump does get charged with something at some point.
But charged with what? That's the question that should matter in a free country. Laws or universal laws apply to all citizens equally, precisely because all citizens are considered equal. For generations, this was very obvious to American liberals. In fact, it was the basis of their worldview. That was back when liberals opposed Jim Crow, and we're not trying to reinstate it as something called equity. We're not liberals, but we retain the traditional American view, which is that laws must be applied equally, or else they're not laws at all. Justice must be blind, or else it is tyranny.
So, we spent the day with help of a lawyer on our staff, trying to assess the likely charges against Donald Trump and here's what we found. Eight years ago, as he was running for president, Trump paid a porn actress called Stormy Daniels $130,000. Daniels alleged that she and Trump had at one point had sex. Trump denied that. He still denies it. But in exchange for promising not to repeat that claim in public, Trump, through his then attorney, Michael Cohen, sent Stormy Daniels a check.
TRUMP LAWYERS DEMAND NARA RECORDS TO EXPOSE 'HIGHLY-POLITICIZED' DOCUMENTS PROBE OF FORMER PRESIDENT
Was that legal? Well, we can answer that question. Because there was a campaign in progress at the time, officials at the Federal Election Commission later examined the transaction between Trump and Stormy Daniels. Federal investigators concluded that nothing criminal had taken place and in fact, settlements like this, whatever you think of them, are common both among famous people, celebrities and in corporate America. The result is usually known as an NDA, a nondisclosure agreement.
In this case, you can believe whatever side you want to believe, but paying people not to talk about things, hush money, is ordinary in modern America. According to the FEC, there was no need for Donald Trump to report his payments to Stormy Daniels. Nor was the money that he sent or through his attorney subject to campaign finance limitations. The FEC determined the entire thing was a personal expenditure. It clearly was.
So, what is the crime here? Well, the media don't seem very interested in finding out. This is Donald Trump. He's a criminal. Everything he does is a crime. Watch.
JENNIFER RUBIN, MSNBC: Simply because he may have committed worse crimes, you don't let him off of lesser crimes. If you are, for example, seeking a prosecution for murder, if the guy gets caught drunk driving in another context before that, you don't just let him go because you have bigger fish to fry.
TRUMP LAWYERS DEMAND NARA RECORDS TO EXPOSE 'HIGHLY-POLITICIZED' DOCUMENTS PROBE OF FORMER PRESIDENT
PAUL BUTLER, MSNBC: Nobody is above the law, including Donald Trump. It doesn't matter that this is kind of a minor crime compared to some of the other allegations.
MIKA BRZEZINSKI, MSNBC: A crime is a crime is a crime is a crime. That's what anybody prosecuting or a judge would say.
JOE SCARBOROUGH, MSNBC: A crime is a crime is a crime, as Mika said. An indictment is an indictment is an indictment. When I hear people saying this is much ado about nothing, I think about all the members of Congress I served with and understanding every single one of them would have been charged and sent to jail had they done this.
AL SHARPTON, MSNBC: I was reading the Bible which said that which a man sows, that he may also reap.
Joe Scarborough, ladies and gentlemen, telling us what a crime is, a crime with a woman. Look, there's Al Sharpton lecturing us about the Bible. It's hilarious. Oh, the hypocrisy, but it didn't really answer the question: Why are we handcuffing Donald Trump? Liberals don't seem to care at all as long as it happens, as long as Trump gets handcuffed, but in fact, there's plenty of evidence that Trump committed no crime in sending money to stormy deals. We don't have to guess.
Consider the case of former North Carolina Senator John Edwards. Edwards was often described as a fiery liberal, but in fact, he was a populist. He ran for president twice and in the process infuriated the leaders of the Democratic Party by talking way too much about income inequality. They really hated him for that. Long after Edwards left office, Barack Obama's DOJ charged him with federal finance violations. The premise of the case against John Edwards was that he had received $1,000,000 in gifts and that he spent that money in hush money payments to his mistress, with whom he later had a child.
Obama's DOJ argues that the money that Edwards sent to his girlfriend amounted to campaign contributions. Edwards never reported that money, so Obama's DOJ tried to send him to prison. Well, in the end, the case fell apart under the weight of its own incoherence. Obama's lawyers argued that any payment that could conceivably help a political candidate politically is by definition a campaign expenditure. There's no law that says that, by the way, they just made it up. But if you think about it for a second, it doesn't make sense. If that were true, flip it around. It would mean that candidates could use donor money and also taxpayer money in the form of federal matching funds to pay for any personal expense, as long as that expense could conceivably benefit them politically.
Candidates could take federal matching funds, tax dollars to buy Ferraris as long as they argued those Ferraris would appear in campaign ads, etc., etc. It's nonsensical.
MANHATTAN DA GETS PUMMELED FOR POSSIBLE TRUMP INDICTMENT: 'IMPOSSIBLE TO OVERSTATE MR. BRAGG’S BAD JUDGMENT'
So, not surprisingly, John Edwards was acquitted in that case. It was a humiliating defeat for the Obama administration, but it also sent a clear message and set a precedent, which Alvin Bragg apparently is ignoring.
We don't know that an indictment is coming, as noted and if it does come, we're not sure what it's going to say. We haven't seen it. But if Trump is indicted for sending money to Stormy Daniels, well, you'll be watching the abuse of law enforcement power.
But you can't complain about it because as Congresswoman Maxine Waters has explained, political protests staged on behalf of Donald Trump are not constitutionally protected. They're domestic terrorism. Watch.
MAXINE WATERS: This is Donald Trump sending messages out to domestic terrorists that he's worked with and he helped to organize for the invasion of the Capitol on January 5th. He's sending out a message to them to get ready to protest any arrests, indictments, etc., that he may have. So, he's basically talking to the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers, QAnon and the KKK.
Though January 6, the only really organized group on January 6 was the FBI, of course, but consider the idea and where it's coming from. This is Maxine Waters. This is the lady who cheered on the L.A. race riots three decades ago. This is the very same person just a few years ago said, "If you see anybody from the Trump cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store at a gasoline station. (she's very old) "Get out and create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they're not welcome anymore anywhere." Basically, necklace them. Oh, yeah Maxine Waters? But she's a Democrat. So, this is just a civil rights exercise. She's protected from domestic terrorism charges and Alvin Bragg is, too.
He's a Democrat and you should know we don't want to impugn his character or anything. We don't want to suggest that there's a connection between politics and the indictment of Donald Trump, but Alvin Bragg did run for office, promising as a campaign promise to indict Donald Trump. We're not guessing. He gave televised interviews about it. Watch.
REPORTER: All right. So, newspaper reports today say we could expect to see an indictment to be handed down against Donald Trump soon. Any thoughts on how you would handle such a high-profile case?
ALVIN BRAGG: Certainly throughout my career, I've gone wherever the facts have taken me and the types of allegations that have been reported publicly, valuation of assets, perhaps the use of shell companies, tax fraud. I did. I've done all these sort of cases. I've tried a mortgage fraud case. I've tried one of the most significant money laundering cases in the New York region. So, of all the candidates, I sort of stand at the ready with all the tools and a tool kit.
MANHATTAN DA'S OFFICE 'ASKED FOR A MEETING' WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT AHEAD OF POSSIBLE TRUMP INDICTMENT
Yeah, we're going to go after Trump and by the way, he listed some real crimes there, and they have spent years trying to pin those crimes on Trump, even get his tax returns illegally, and they found none of them. Not a defense of Trump, just true. So, we wind up with this, which is piddling.
But what's interesting is, even as Bragg has been single-mindedly focused (Bragg is a graduate of Harvard College) on Donald Trump and his crimes – sending money to a porn star – he has been not only ignoring real crimes, but downgrading felonies to misdemeanors and letting actual violent criminals out of jail as quickly as possible.
On his first day in office, first day, Bragg consistent with the ideas of the man who paid for his campaign George Soros, issued a memo explaining his office will "not seek a cursory sentence except in cases involving homicides, economic crimes and a small number of felonies."
That was great news for people who commit violent felonies, including rapists like Justin Washington. Washington struck a deal with Bragg that allowed him to serve just 30 days in jail under the theory that his rape was really just second-degree coercion. So. he got out quickly and when he did, police say this same man sexually attacked five other people in the Bronx, even tried to rape a homeless woman at ten in the morning.
In another case, a career criminal who was arrested three times in four months for serious crimes, including assault and aggravated harassment, skipped court and when police finally found him and hauled him to court, Bragg's office let him go in January of last year. Guess what he did when he got out? He murdered a woman.
REPORTER: A growing makeshift memorial in front of a New York City apartment building honoring Christina Yuna Lee after police say a man followed her home and attacked her, stabbing her to death. This security video obtained by NBC News appears to show Lee being followed by the suspect. When they arrived, the door was barricaded. When cops went into the apartment, investigators say they found the body of a 35-year-old woman later identified as Lee in her bathroom and the suspect covered in blood. Police say Assamad Nash was arrested and charged with Lee's murder. This was his eighth arrest since May of 2021.
What's interesting is that no one cares. Where's Joe Scarborough on that? Is he upset about it? Is his wife upset? Power to women? Right. All the arch feminists who should be out there defending women, they don't care at all.
Here you have a D.A. who treats violent felonies like they're misdemeanors, even when it gets people killed, who's unleashing criminals on the population, but then spending all of his time trying to destroy his political opponents, in this case, elevating a misdemeanor charge to a felony for the purpose of taking down Trump.
Now, here's what we think, if there is an indictment, will form the core of the charge. Bragg seems to be alleging that Trump violated New York's Business Record Act by falsely reporting the payout to Stormy Daniels as "legal fees." Now, if this were true, it would constitute a misdemeanor, and the statute of limitations has already run out for that for the bookkeeping error, assuming it even happened. But Bragg apparently is thinking about charging Trump under a felony version of the Business Records Law, one that punishes businesses for falsifying records as a way to commit another separate crime.
MANHATTAN DA BRAGG DECRIES TRUMP'S ATTEMPT TO 'INTIMIDATE' HIS OFFICE IN PRIVATE MEMO
That would be the campaign finance violation, which, as we mentioned, was not a campaign finance violation, and we know that from the FEC, which polices campaign finance violations, by the way, if it were, then that would be a federal crime, not something that Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan D.A., would be prosecuting. The whole thing doesn't make any sense at all on a legal level. On a political level, it does because Trump is running for president.
So, what's behind this? Is he acting alone? We may soon find out. Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio sits in the House Judiciary Committee, is calling on Bragg to testify before the Congress. He wants to hear Bragg explain whether or not he's had any contact with the White House or the Biden DOJ, and if he has, maybe that will explain these charges. He also wants to know whether this prosecution will use any federal funds. Let's hope Alvin Bragg was committed to the rule of law, complies or is forced to comply very soon.
But no matter what happens if this indictment arrives, no matter who you voted for, I plan on voting for it. Make no mistake, this is a turning point for the country.
Now, the headline here is not that they're being unfair to Donald Trump again, though. Of course, they are. Or even that Trump is the former president of the United States. Who cares? I mean, though, as long as we are indicting retired presidents, where are the charges against George W Bush for invading Iraq under false pretenses and giving permanent normal trade relations to China, which completely wrecked our economy? Where are those charges?
Don't hold your breath.In Washington, wrecking your own country is not considered a crime and of course, George W Bush knows that well, which is why he doesn't seem worried at all. Criticizing the ruling class, that's what they indict you for. But either way, Donald Trump's former job as president of the United States is not really the point here.
Yes, of course, you can indict former presidents if they've done something wrong. That's not what this is about. The headline here is that there is, as noted, a presidential race in progress right now, and if you check the polls, you will find that Trump is leading the Republican field. That's the unprecedented thing, taking out your opponent, using the justice system.
If the Democratic Party is allowed to do this, allowed to crush the presidential front-runner, the main threat to their power, with a bogus criminal case, where does that leave us? We're done because that precedent will live forever and voters will never again determine the outcome of a presidential election. It's remarkable when you think about it.

After all the yelling from permanent Washington about January 6 and how it was a threat to our democratic norms and the peaceful transfer of power, they've decided to completely short circuit our democratic norms, not to mention the peaceful transfer of power using the courts and prosecutors. What happens if they get away with this? No one seems to be thinking this through. Everyone's all spun up, but what happens if they get away with this?
If they use the Justice Department in full view of everyone to settle a political score and to keep the White House just to take a guy out of the race who seems to be doing fairly well. We’ll destroy the justice system and that's not a small thing. A functioning justice system has kept this country peaceful for hundreds of years. The purpose of a justice system is to administer justice so that citizens don't have to do it themselves. You outsource that duty to the government. But what happens when you take that away, when there is no justice system?
What happens when the Department of Justice decides that its goal is not justice, but protecting the ruling class at all costs? Think about that. People are still going to demand justice. The desire for justice is an inherent human desire. We are born with it. But if there's no neutral place to do it, some people will decide they're going to have to do it themselves. Now, we don't know exactly what that's going to look like, but we can say for certain it's going to be really ugly.
So, they hate Donald Trump. Fine, but they don't get to destroy America's justice system because they do. We would never recover from that.
Kansas man stumbles on human skeleton while searching for deer antlersOn March 21, 2023
A Kansas man was searching for deer antlers on Sat… Read more
A man was searching for shed deer antlers in a rural part of southeast Kansas over the weekend when he discovered human skeletal remains, according to officials.
State and local authorities responded to the scene around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday near Humboldt, a small town about 110 miles south of Kansas City.
Officials were able to confirm that the remains belonged to a human, but they were so decomposed that the age and gender were not immediately apparent. An autopsy is scheduled to positively identify the remains and notify next-of-kin.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Allen County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the case but don't believe there is a threat to the public.
"In these types of cases investigators typically first consider individuals who have been reported missing in the area," a Kansas Bureau of Investigation spokesperson told Fox News Digital.
IN NEVADA, $1,000 REWARD OFFERED IN SEARCH FOR SUSPECT IN DEER POACHING CASE
Bucks shed their antlers annually between late winter and spring once mating season is over. February is the best time for people to search the Kansas countryside for antlers, according to the state Department of Wildlife and Parks.
Hunters and hikers have accidentally helped solve missing person cases in the past while searching for antlers.
In December 2021, a man scavenging the woods of southern Missouri for deer antlers found human remains that belonged to a mixed martial arts fighter who had gone missing nearly two years earlier.

A Las Vegas, Nevada, man is in custody after allegedly committing a carjacking and killing a man on New Year’s Day, trying to burn the vehicle and pouring urine and feces inside to cover up and mask his DNA, according to reports.
FOX 5 Las Vegas reported that at about 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 1, officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department responded to the Play It Again Sam’s Gentlemen’s Club after Roy Kridler, 62, said he was carjacked.
When officers arrived, Kridler said a man pulled him out of his car, causing him to hit his head on the pavement.
LAS VEGAS POLICE CONDUCT RANDOM AIRBNB SPOT CHECKS DURING SPRING BREAK
The man who pulled Kridler out of the vehicle was later identified as 25-year-old Chanler McCloud.
Kridler reportedly chased after McCloud, who allegedly pulled out a knife before driving away.
When police spoke to Kridler, he wanted to sit down because his head hurt. He later went unconscious and was transported to a nearby hospital where he died at 2:35 a.m.
The police report noted that Kridler died of acute coronary artery thrombosis.
Prior to the incident on Jan. 1, McCloud was arrested on Dec. 23 for carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, though he was released from custody after the charge was dismissed.
LAS VEGAS MAN ARRESTED FOR ALLEGEDLY SMASHING CAR WITH AX, WHILE CHILD SAT INSIDE: REPORT
The morning after the alleged carjacking, the stolen vehicle was located in town on a traffic camera with McCloud in the vehicle, though when police arrived on the scene, he was gone.
Then on Jan. 10, police found the vehicle on Valley View Boulevard, and it showed signs that McCloud set it on fire to try and destroy the evidence.
FOX 5 said police were able to collect DNA evidence from the vehicle.
Nearly two months later, McCloud was located and stopped for a bicycle violation and taken into custody on March 9.
Police said McCloud confessed to killing Kridler after he was read his Miranda Rights.
OKLAHOMA BOMBING CO-CONSPIRATOR'S SON PLEADS NOT GUILTY TO ARMED ROBBERY AND KIDNAPPING IN NEVADA: REPORT
According to the report, McCloud won money gambling and accepted a ride to a spa in Chinatown from Kridler.
McCloud allegedly got angry when Kridler pulled over at Play It Again Sam’s instead of the Hustler’s Club, where he wanted to be dropped out.
It was not clear to police why Kridler was giving McCloud a ride.
"McCloud admitted he used his left hand to shove Kridler hard enough to push him away from the vehicle, that Kridler fell as a result, and McCloud drove away," police said.
As for why he set the vehicle on fire, police said McCloud drove around but could not find bleach to destroy his DNA. Instead, he used a candle to burn the seat before pouring urine and feces to hide and mask the DNA.
McCloud was charged with murder, robbery, destruction of evidence and grand larceny. He was held without bond and is expected back in court on March 27.
Sikh separatists reportedly vandalize Indian consulates in San Francisco, LondonOn March 21, 2023
Indian consulates in London and San Francisco have… Read more
Windows at India's High Commission in London and at the Consulate General of India in San Francisco were smashed during separate demonstrations by Sikh protesters, police in both cities said Monday.
London’s Metropolitan Police force said a man was arrested Sunday afternoon on suspicion of violent disorder outside the diplomatic mission, where two security guards were slightly injured. In San Francisco, dozens of protesters gathered outside the consulate and smashed windows with their flagpoles after a skirmish with embassy workers, a protester said.
San Francisco Police Officer Robert Rueca said in an email that embassy workers were injured, though he didn't say how many or the extent of the injuries. Suspects fled and have not been arrested, he said.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN STATUE VANDALIZED IN CHICAGO
The U.S. State Department was working with local authorities to investigate the incident and repair the damage.
"We certainly condemn that vandalism," White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said Monday during a briefing.
The protesters were affiliated with a Sikh separatist movement that seeks to create a new homeland or breakaway state, called "Khalistan."
The incidents came a day after police in India’s Punjab state launched a manhunt to capture Amritpal Singh, a separatist leader who supports the Khalistan movement. His supporters staged protests in the majority Sikh state over the weekend and 112 were arrested, the Press Trust of India news agency reported.
In San Francisco, police officers arrived at the Consulate General on Sunday afternoon to find shattered glass windows. Workers described protesters trying to enter the building, Rueca said. He didn't immediately provide additional details on how the confrontation began.
On Monday morning, more than a dozen protesters were again outside the building, which was protected behind police barricades and a police vehicle in front.
Gurpreet Singh of Fresno, California, was outside the embassy both days and said protesters planned to keep up their demands for a separate Sikh state. Singh said he arrived too late to see what happened Sunday afternoon but was told embassy workers took down the Khalistan flags protesters had put up near the entrance.
A worker then pushed a protester, cursed him and said "don’t put your dirty flag here," said Veer Singh, another protester who saw the confrontation. That led protesters to begin using their flagpoles to smash in the windows, Gurpreet Singh said.
Rueca, of the police department, said protesters were blocked from entering the building.
The Consul General of India in San Francisco did not respond to an emailed inquiry for comment.
In London, footage posted on social media showed a man detach the Indian flag from a balcony of the building while a crowd of people below waving bright yellow Khalistan banners appeared to encourage him.
Police said officers were called but protesters had largely dispersed by the time they arrived.
"An investigation was launched, and one male was arrested nearby a short time later on suspicion of violent disorder. Inquiries continue," the force said.
The Indian government said it had summoned British Deputy High Commissioner Christina Scott in New Delhi to demand an explanation.
"India finds unacceptable the indifference of the U.K. government to the security of Indian diplomatic premises and personnel in the U.K.," the Indian government said in a statement.
On Monday, Punjab remained on high alert as police resumed their search for Singh, whom they accuse of inciting communal tensions.
The Khalistan movement is banned in India, where officials see it and affiliated groups as a national security threat. But the movement still has some support in the state, as well as beyond, in countries like Canada and the United Kingdom which are home to a sizable Sikh diaspora.
RUSSIAN CONSULATE IN NYC VANDALIZED AS PUTIN ANNEXES UKRAINIAN TERRITORY
On Monday, at least 200 Sikh protesters affiliated with India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party held demonstrations outside the British High Commission in New Delhi over the incident in London. The protesters, who said they were also demonstrating against the insult to the Indian flag, tried to march inside the British embassy but were stopped by police.
"Some people in the cover of Sikhism are trying to create an impression that we support Khalistan. We are against Khalistan. We don’t want Khalistan," protester Arvinderpal Singh said.
U.K. Foreign Office Minister Tariq Ahmad said he was "appalled" by the violence in London.
"This is a completely unacceptable action against the integrity of the Mission and its staff," he wrote on Twitter. "The U.K. government will always take the security of the Indian High Commission seriously."
London Mayor Sadiq Khan condemned "the violent disorder and vandalism."
"There is no place in our city for this kind of behavior," he said.
10 things to do during your downtime if you're not traveling for spring breakOn March 21, 2023
Going to a concert, heading to a campground, start… Read more
Spring break traveling can get very expensive.
Between airline tickets, hotel stays plus all the food and activities you have to pay for once you’re at your destination, you are looking at hundreds, even thousands for a getaway.
While many take the spring break vacation to get away, others take time to sit back and relax at home.
10 SAFETY TIPS TO REMEMBER IF YOU'RE TRAVELING OUT OF THE COUNTRY FOR SPRING BREAK
If you are not traveling during this year's spring break, here are some things that you can do that will not break the bank.
Do some research and look for a local concert or play that is happening in your area. There are sure to be inexpensive concert tickets for different shows that are taking place.
Going to a concert or a play is something different to do during your spring break that will pull you out of your normal routine.
Hop in the car, drive to a campground not far from your home base and enjoy a couple of days with nature. Camping is a super inexpensive way to travel.
BEST CAMPGROUNDS ACROSS AMERICA
There are many campsites that have activities to do on the campground, like swimming pools, volleyball courts, etc.
Renting a campsite is typically a lot less expensive than a hotel stay, and you’ll be able to appreciate the outdoors more than you would be able to in a hotel.
Don’t forget your fishing pole and s’mores sticks!
If you want to really make things easy, you can bring camping to you by setting up your campsite right in your backyard.
You have so many books you’ve been wanting to read — but no time to read them. Spring break is the perfect time to start working your way through your book list.
BUTTERED POPCORN CUPCAKES FOR MOVIE NIGHT
If there is a new series you’ve been wanting to start, or a memoir that you’ve heard so many good things about or maybe a romance novel that has been recommended to you, it’s time to get comfy and get started.
Movie nights are always fun, so why not have one during spring break? Better yet, maybe even do a movie marathon.
Have you always wanted to watch a "Harry Potter" film but have never gotten around to it? Or maybe the "Avengers" movies? "Twilight?"
If there is any series that you've always wanted to start, you could watch one of them a day during spring break.
THE BIGGEST US THEME PARKS IN EVERY REGION
If you’re feeling ambitious, get your friends together for an all night movie marathon where you watch all the films in a series. A
Use your week off to do something that you wouldn’t normally do. This could be going to a mini golf course, visiting the zoo or visiting an amusement park close to you if any are open.
The list of activities are almost endless. The most important thing is to choose something different from the usual.
Dust off that guitar you bought years ago and get strumming. You more than likely have some activity that you have been wanting to learn. That could be playing an instrument, learning how to crochet, maybe learning a new sport.
CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR LIFESTYLE NEWSLETTER
Use the week to begin your new hobby and it might just be something that will stick with you beyond spring break.
Time to watch that new TV show all your friends have been bugging you about. If you have a show that you have been wanting to watch but haven’t had the time to begin, you can use some of your time off to start (or maybe watch all of) the show.
A baking day is something fun to add to your spring break agenda. Whether it’s cookies, muffins, breads or a little bit of everything, look up some recipes and get cooking.
If you want to make things interesting, you could have a bake off with your friends and family. You all pick a dish to make and go head-to-head.
Themed nights are such a fun and different activity to do with your friends. You could do a murder mystery party, or a fancy dinner party where everyone dresses to impress.
You could do a PowerPoint night, where everyone makes a goofy presentation and presents to the group. You could bring the karaoke bar home to you and have a karaoke party.
Cocktail night is always a fun idea, where each friend brings a different cocktail.
You could also do this with charcuterie boards.
Printing pictures has become somewhat of a lost art with everything now being saved digitally. Even in the digital world we live in, it is nice to have a scrapbook with all your favorite pictures stored inside.
Scrapbooking can also be a lot of fun and forces you to be both creative and crafty. Even though it is a fun activity, it can also be a time-consuming one. Getting started or continuing your scrapbook during spring break will give you enough time to really be able to focus on it.
California school district hires anti-critical race theory consultantOn March 21, 2023

A California school district's newly elected conservative board approved a resolution to spend $15,000 in taxpayer money for sessions with an anti-critical race theory (CRT) consultant.
Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD) is allocating taxpayer dollars towards the program after the district prohibited the teaching of CRT in its classrooms in December.
The measure was approved on a 3-2 vote by the school board on March 13th. The new conservative TVUSD governing board members Dr. Joseph Wayne Komrosky, Jennifer Wiersma, and Danny Gonzalez voted in favor of approving the resolution. School board members Allison Barclay and Steven Schwartz voted against it.
Gonzalez proposed a contract with the anti-CRT consultant and an after-school TVUSD board workshop to focus on CRT. Christopher Arend, a former school board president of Paso Robles, will also serve on a six-member panel at the workshop being held at James L. Day Middle School.
CALIF. PARENTS SLAM 'DIVISIVE' ETHNIC STUDIES CURRICULUM: 'TEACHING THEM TO BE HATEFUL TOWARDS PEOPLE'
The other workshop panelists are reportedly also in disagreement with CRT. The criteria for how the panelists were selected are not clear.
Arend was hired to have "discussion groups" covering the history of critical race theory and discuss the TVUSD's banning of the framework in December, walking educators through that resolution. Arend, a fierce CRT critic, said that he served as a school board member of Paso Robles Joint Unified School District from 2018-2022 and served as president his last two years.
The school district's CRT ban was based on a 2021 resolution passed in Paso Robles Joint Unified School District, where Arend previously worked. Furthermore, Arend has written a manuscript for a new book called "Critical Race Theory Scam" which he "hopes to get published."
Barclay and Schwartz school board members pushed back against the hiring of Arend.
"He's not an expert, he's not an expert on CRT. Because he's an attorney, and he's studied it does not give him the degree in history or ethnic studies or anything that is related to critical race theory," Trustee Area 5 board member Schwartz said, noting Arend's lack of teaching credentials.
Schwartz also added that the money being used for Arend should instead be allocated toward other expenses such as high school field trips or graduation expenses.
After Schwartz questioned Arend's qualifications to lecture about critical race theory, Trustee Area 3 board member Jennifer Wiersma asked Arend to clarify his "expertise" on education code.
"This has been a subject I had been interested in for a very long time. It kind of goes hand in hand with studying the law. When you study the law, you study one of the main principles of equal protection under the law," Arend told the board.
The program is reported to consist of six sessions that will last two hours each, engage 13 people per session including staff and administrators, and would occur during the school day. It will cost TVUSD at least $15,000. Arend desires for community members to get involved as well.
"I don't think we need to spend 15,000 on a gentleman who thinks CRT is a disgustingly racist ideology," Schwartz said after Arend's remarks.
Wiersma supported the hiring of Arend, noting that the TVUSD previously spent "thousands" of dollars on diversity, equity, inclusion, and other training.
"My point is that I kind of went through our track record of what we've done for training. Things that are important to us. They come from a variety of fields and so, this is not out of the ordinary," Wiersma said. "I think as important as this discussion is on global, state, and national levels, it is important to have somebody that comes to the table and can advocate but also pull in people for the discussions from that point I would hope there would be some talk about where the resolution might need to go with the workshop which is entirely different. You're going to have five different experts that don't vote the same, they don't look the same, and they don't have the same background."
Members of the audience heckled Wiersma while she made her comments.

Many speakers blasted the idea of hiring Arend as an anti-CRT consultant.

One of the speakers who teaches a robotics class played an audio clip of Arend claiming he would teach CRT for gas money.
"He said he’d do it for gas money. That $15,000 is a lot of gas money. In my opinion, hiring Christopher Arend or really any of the CRT panels should be a no-go. CRT is a non-issue at TVSD and for the record, I resent the time, money, and resources being spent on this non-issue. We should be focused on our students and our educational programs at TVSD," she said.
She added that she sent one of the board members ideas on how the $15,000 could be spent, including her robotics class.
Another speaker noted that local school boards are designed to implement the curriculum as opposed to making it, per state law.
"The state has content standards and frameworks. The state of California made our curriculum. Teachers must teach that," she said. "So we have to make sure this CRT resolution you passed doesn't prevent the teachers from doing the job they must do. We must teach about racism in our society."
TVUSD did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment.
The school district serves roughly 28,468 students and has 5 Trustee Areas and board members who serve 4-year terms.
Alabama's Nick Saban appears to take subtle swipe at basketball coach after suspending playerOn March 21, 2023
Alabama head football coach Nick Saban explained t… Read more
University of Alabama freshman cornerback Tony Mitchell was suspended from "all team activities" head coach Nick Saban said on Monday after being arrested last Wednesday in Florida.
What he said on the matter, though, seemed like it could’ve been a subtle jab at a fellow Crimson Tide head coach.
Alabama men’s basketball coach Nate Oats made it to the Sweet 16 with his No. 1 seeded squad that features freshman standout Brandon Miller as their best player. But there are some who believe Miller shouldn’t be playing at all after learning his role in the shooting death of 23-year-old Jamea Harris.
CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM
On Jan. 15, Miller transported the weapon used in the killing to former teammate Darius Miles, the legal owner of the firearm, who then gave it to Michael Davis, the shooter. Both Miles and Davis were charged with capital murder, while cops said they were unable to charge Miller with anything.
When talking at the Crimson Tide’s first football practice of the spring on Monday, Saban had this to say about Mitchell’s suspension.
"There is cause and effect when you make choices and decisions that put you in bad situations," Saban said, via AL.com.
TOP-SEEDED ALABAMA ADVANCES TO SWEET 16 WITH DOMINANT WIN OVER MARYLAND
"Everybody’s got an opportunity to make choices and decisions. There’s no such thing as being in the wrong place at the wrong time."
Those are some very interesting words considering the Miller situation. Oats’ handling of it has been ridiculed because, while police can’t charge him with anything, the fact he brought the firearm to the Tuscaloosa location where the shooting occurred led many thinking a suspension was on the horizon.
Instead, Oats defended his star player.
"We know about that," he said in response to Miller’s alleged involvement. "Can’t control everything everybody does outside of practice. Nobody knew that was going to happen. College kids are out. Brandon hasn’t been in any type of trouble nor is he in any type of trouble in this case. Wrong spot at the wrong time."
Oats later clarified that initial statement.
"I thought it was important for me to clarify the unfortunate remarks I made earlier. This entire time I’ve tried to be thoughtful in my words relative to this tragic incident, and my statements came across poorly," his statement read.
"We were informed by law enforcement of other student-athletes being in the vicinity, and law enforcement has repeatedly told us that no other student-athletes were suspects—they were witnesses only. Our understanding is that they have all been fully truthful and cooperative."
ALABAMA DEFENSIVE BACK ARRESTED ON MARIJUANA POSSESSION, INTENT TO SELL/DELIVER
He continued, "In no way did I intend to downplay the seriousness of this situation or the tragedy of that night. My prayers continue to go out to Jamea Harris’s family."
Miller’s lawyer claims that his client was unaware the gun was in the backseat of his vehicle, saying Miles had put it there unbeknownst to him. And Miller has been playing for the Crimson Tide since the incident, including their two wins in the NCAA Tournament over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and Maryland.
As for Mitchell, he was arrested in Holmes County, Florida, for possession of marijuana with intent to sell and/or deliver. Saban added that his suspension will be upheld until more information is gathered.
"You’ve got to be responsible for who you’re with, who you’re around and what you do; who you associate yourself and the situations that you put yourself in," Saban added.

Howard Stern nominates Jon Stewart for president: 'He owes it to his country to run'On March 21, 2023
Legendary shock jock Howard Stern praised former D… Read more
Sirius XM radio host Howard Stern suggested Monday that former Daily Show host Jon Stewart would be an ideal candidate for the presidency.
Stern is one of America's most famous radio personalities, with a decade-spanning career of shock jock humor and interviews with guests such as Donald Trump before his rise to the presidency. Stern praised Stewart, who has remained a prominent political figure even after retirement from his Comedy Central show, commenting on issues ranging from legislation to debate over the COVID lab leak theory.
"Over vacation, I’m watching a ton of this one guy, and I’m watching him debate all kinds of different people," Stern recalled on The Howard Stern Show.
He added, "He knew more than any of them. And his name is Jon Stewart. Jon Stewart. Now listen, bear with me, Robin. When Jon Stewart hosted The Daily Show, they said that he was the most trusted newsman in the country. Like Walter Cronkite trustworthy."
HOWARD STERN DISTRAUGHT OVER END OF MASK MANDATES, BLAMES REPUBLICANS: 'THE WACKOS ARE WINNING'
Stern continued, suggesting to his co-host Robin Quivers that Stewart has the necessary political knowledge, "When you hear this guy talk, whether he’s supporting army veterans or he’s talking about various - whatever it is, and I’m not going to go into everything I watch, the guy is so f------ smart and bright and also witty and really measured when he takes on a debate."
Quivers added on to Stern’s praise of the former Daily Show host, "He really cares, I mean, the reason you can debate him on any issue is because he cares about the issues."
"You know, he would work his a-- off to be a good president. I’m telling you, he could also win because people like Jon Stewart," Stern insisted.
"But he gave up The Daily Show because it was too much," Quivers recalled.
COVID HYSTERIA TURNED HOWARD STERN INTO 'EXACTLY THE PERSON HE SPENT DECADES MOCKING:' REPORTER
"Well, he owes it to his country to run," Stern said.
Quivers asked if Stewart would be willing to take up such a role even though it would be a "lot more work than The Daily Show."
"A lot more work, but the guy would be terrific and I think he’d do it. So I’m putting it out there," Stern said, claiming he had not discussed the idea with Stewart himself.
"The way Zelenskyy is doing in Ukraine, Jon Stewart would be great, and I will not accept Trevor Noah as a substitute," he said. Before becoming president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy was a comedian.
He later added, "I would like Jon to come on the show and accept the nomination right here, and I would back him, and how will I back him? I’m not putting up any money because I’m very cheap."
Stern endorsed Biden in 2020 after supporting Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 is brand's last V8 muscle car and most powerful everOn March 21, 2023
The 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 is the las… Read more
Dodge is sending its most iconic motor out with a very big bang.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 is the last V8-powered car the brand will introduce before it stops building them altogether at the end of 2023, and it’s a history-making model.
The two-door coupe is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that’s rated at 900 hp when running on 91 octane gasoline and an astonishing 1,025 hp using even higher octane E85 fuel.
The 170 in its name is a humorous reference to the alcohol content and proof of E85.
V8 DODGE MUSCLE CARS ARE GOING EXTINCT: THESE WERE SOME OF THE GREATEST
Both outputs qualify it as the most powerful internal combustion engine car ever sold by a major American automaker.
It’s also the quickest production car in the world in accelerating to 60 mph, with the sprint certified at 1.66 seconds while it can cover a quarter-mile in 8.9 seconds at a trap speed of 151 mph.
The car is an evolution of the limited edition 808 hp 2018 Challenger SRT Demon, but Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis told Fox News Digital that every major part in the engine except for the camshaft has been redesigned to handle the extra power. That includes its massive 3.0-liter supercharger.
The Demon 170 also gets a stronger drive shaft, rear axle housing and half-shafts to get the power to its standard equipment Mickey Thompson street-legal drag tires. The eight-speed automatic uses an updated version of the original Demon’s TransBrake, which is a drag racing-derived feature that allows the driver to rev the engine while the vehicle is stationary without using the brakes by locking the eight-speed automatic transmission.
That sets it up for a launch that’s hard enough to pop a wheelie, which is further enhanced by a computer-controlled suspension that has a Drag Mode setting to optimize the weight transfer as it jumps off the starting line.
The Demon 170 is delivered with just a cloth driver’s seat but can be ordered with a full set and leather upholstery is an option. A safety cage and parachute will be available through the Dodge Direct Connection parts catalog, both of which are required by the NHRA if you want to try to break the nine second quarter-mile and 150 mph marks on a drag strip.
Kuniskis says you’ll need some practice to get good enough to replicate the official performance numbers, but that it’s possible to fill up with E85 at a gas station, head to the track and get it done.
You’ll want to start with an empty tank, however, as the car monitors the fuel mix that’s in it and adjusts its power to match. So it won’t put out the full 1,025 hp unless its running on pure E85.

Pricing for the Demon 170 has been set at an appropriately evil $96,666, not including destination charges and fees. Each will come with a serialized Demon-branded decanter and whiskey glass set as another tip of the hat to its E85-burning capability.
Production will be limited to 3,000 for the U.S. and 300 for Canada, but Kuniskis said the final count could end up being lower if any of the ongoing supply-chain issues cause parts shortages; the cars have to all be built by the end of the year when the Challenger and Charger assembly line is scheduled to stop building them.
After that, Dodge is replacing its V8-powered muscle cars with a production version of the electric Charger Daytona SRT Concept, which will be offered in a top-of-the-line Banshee model that could rival the Demon 170’s power and speed, although those details have yet to be announced.
"Now we will have a new benchmark, and it will be up to us to see if we can beat this one," Kuniskis said.
"The best challenge to have is to beat yourself."
California proposes bill to ban some food products while nutritionists fret about 'gross' ingredientsOn March 21, 2023
As the California State Legislature considers a bi… Read more
The California State Legislature proposed a bill in February that would ban the sale of food products such as Skittles, Pez and other items due to their reportedly harmful additives, as Healthnews.com noted.
Food items made with brominated vegetable oil, potassium bromate, propylparaben, red dye 3 or titanium dioxide apparently all need to be given a wide berth, the same site also notes.
"Californians shouldn’t have to worry that the food they buy in their neighborhood grocery store might be full of dangerous additives or toxic chemicals," said Jesse Gabriel, an assembly member, in a statement.
His district is outside Los Angeles; he, along with another legislator, proposed the ban in a bill.
ULTRA-PROCESSED FOOD CONSUMPTION LINKED TO HIGHER RISK OF DEATH FROM OVARIAN, BREAST CANCERS: NEW STUDY
Many nutrition experts have indicated for years that certain ingredients in processed foods are problematic.
Registered dietitian and nutritionist Ilana Muhlstein of Los Angeles — who is also a nurse — told Fox News Digital that while certain foods sold in the U.S. may be tasty, what they’re made with, in her personal view, is "pretty gross."
She said that for this reason, she feels "heartbroken" as "a proud American."
"We are not [observing] very simple regulating policies in our food manufacturing that so many other countries have [in place]," she said.
Muhlstein added that in her opinion, policymakers and food companies are "hurting" customers, neighbors, friends and all other Americans through their "food manufacturing process" and by not including warning labels about potentially harmful ingredients.
SESAME ALLERGY MOMS SOUND OFF ABOUT SHORTCUTS ON FDA GUIDELINES: ‘THREATENING THE LIVES OF OUR KIDS’
The ingredients she referenced include such chemicals as brominated vegetable oil and carrageenan.
Also, select coffee creamers are made mostly of vegetable oils; many contain partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oil. While these oils can help extend the shelf life of coffee creamers, the European Union reportedly bans some of these products.
Karine Patel, a London dietitian and founder of Dietitian Fit & Co, told Fox News Digital she believes that foods linked with serious diseases and health conditions "should be banned across the world."
"Having been in the USA multiple times, I personally find that there are too many companies manufacturing ultra-processed foods," the dietitian said.
"There is consistent evidence these foods are linked with obesity in both children and adults, and a greater risk of developing chronic diseases and cancer."
She added, "These foods are generally higher in calories and very low in nutrients, and the quality of these foods is generally very poor."
EAT THESE FIVE POWER FOODS NOW TO HELP PREVENT CANCER
Food manufacturing companies have their own views.
Muhlstein indicated a concern about pork. It's due to the use of ractopamine, a drug fed to U.S. pigs to increase their weight, she said.
The pharmaceutical drug has been linked to cardiac issues in humans, including increased heart rate and heart pounding, Muhlstein said.
KIDS AND OBESITY: NEW GUIDELINES RELEASED TO EVALUATE AND TREAT CHILDHOOD, ADOLESCENT WEIGHT ISSUES
"U.S. pork consumption is so high — we eat lots of bacon here — and our number-one killer in America is heart disease," she said.
"Heart disease kills more Americans than all cancers combined."
Although ractopamine has been linked with dangerous effects, it is still "widely used" within the pork industry, said Muhlstein.
U.S. pork is reportedly banned in 160 countries including in EU countries and in Russia and China, according to Eat This, Not That, due to ractopamine content.
However, in controlled safety and efficacy studies "involving thousands of pigs" — along with a 20-year track record of "safe use in hundreds of millions of finishing pigs" — ractopamine has been shown to be "a safe and eﬀective feed supplement" when administered properly, according to Michigan State University's website.
HEALTHY LIVING HABITS INCLUDE EATING DINNER EARLIER — IT MAY ALSO HELP KEEP WEIGHT DOWN
Fox News Digital reached out to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service for comment.
Muhlstein mentioned some of America’s most beloved and colorful candies.
This includes M&Ms and Skittles — both coated in artificial colors, including yellow 5 and yellow 6.
Such dyes have been linked with increased cancer risk; products that contain these colors are often labeled with a warning saying they may have an adverse effect on activity levels and attention in children.
Yellow 5 is believed to cause hyperactivity plus learning problems in children, according to WebMD.
The food dye has also been linked with allergic reactions including hives, itching, coughing and vomiting, the same site notes.
U.S.-produced Skittles and M&Ms are reportedly banned in parts of Europe for this reason.
MAJOR FOOD BRANDS ARE ADDING SESAME TO ITEMS IN ‘SHORTCUT’ AFTER FDA DECLARES THE SEED A ‘MAJOR ALLERGEN'
But Europeans can still purchase M&Ms manufactured with natural dyes, according to Eat This, Not That.
"They're doing a whole re-branding … with their M&M characters so they can be more inclusive and caring," Muhlstein said.
"Yet they’re [offering] M&Ms with only natural colors in Europe and refuse to change it for the U.S," she continued.
Muhlstein said it is "a beautiful thing" to be more inclusive while being more "helpful and caring and considerate of … our bodies and our future."
HEALTHY LIVING HABITS INCLUDE EATING DINNER EARLIER — IT MAY ALSO HELP KEEP WEIGHT DOWN
Fox News Digital reached out to M&Ms and Skittles manufacturer Mars, Inc. for comment.
A Mars Wrigley spokesperson told Fox News Digital by email, "In some instances, our recipes vary slightly across the globe. This is largely to accommodate the different taste preferences of people who enjoy our treats across two hemispheres and six continents."
The spokesperson continued, "To be clear, we always follow local regulatory rules, and all of our treats and snacks are made to the very highest quality and adhere to the strictest safety standards, it is simply something that we won’t compromise on."
Bread isn’t just bread anymore, according to nutrition and health experts. Many white bread products are filled with chemical compounds to extend shelf life, as seen on ingredient labels.
"Bread in America is just so far from bread," Muhlstein said, expressing her opinion.
"So many people think we have gluten allergies, but it could be that we’re just having allergic reactions," she said.
She added, "Many people say they can go to France [and] they're able to eat bread and be OK, and then they come to the U.S. and they get so bloated and sick," she added. "The chemicals that we're pumping into our white bread is shocking."
She added, "It's not even the fact that it's the calories and the starches and the lack of fiber [in white bread] … It's the fact that it’s loaded with all these chemical compounds. It has to change."
Muhlstein suggested a re-education among American consumers when it comes to an awareness of certain ingredients.
This includes putting pressure on American food organizations to provide the same care for consumer health as other countries do, she suggested.
"We should be unified on this front," she said.
Muhlstein advised consumers to be "more picky" about the grocery stores they frequent, since certain stores like Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and Kroger have brand lines that don't contain harmful ingredients.
Patel also suggested that consumers focus on whole foods or foods with a "very short list of ingredients and ingredients that you are familiar with."
EATING HIGH-PROCESSED FOODS COULD LEAD TO A FASTER RATE OF COGNITIVE DECLINE: STUDY
"Avoid those long and unknown ingredient names that you can’t find in your kitchen," she said.
"Try buying seasonal and local foods. These tend to be more nutritious due to their freshness and make sure to wash fruits and vegetables to remove residues of pesticides."
Fox News Digital reached out to the FDA.

A spokesperson shared via an emailed statement the steps that agency takes to keep Americans safe when it comes to food items.
"In terms of regulating anything intentionally added to food or used in contact with food (such as packaging, handling or storage), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulates substances added to food under authorities provided in the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act," the statement said.
"Under this statute, all food additives and color additives require pre-market evaluation before marketing," the spokesperson continued.
"Federal regulations require evidence that each substance is safe at its intended level of use before it may be added to foods. Manufacturers submit data and information to the FDA requesting approval of the intended use."
"The FDA evaluates all available information, to ensure the available information demonstrates that the substance is safe under the intended conditions of use," they noted.
"Post-approval, our scientists continue to review relevant new information to determine whether there are safety questions and whether the use of such substance is no longer safe under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act."
Florida woman allegedly threatened McDonald's employees with gun over missing menu item: policeOn March 21, 2023

A Florida woman was arrested last week for allegedly brandishing a firearm at two McDonald's drive-thru workers because an item she wanted wasn't on the menu, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Quavi Young, 26, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill, open carry of a weapon, and driving with a suspended license.
The incident began last Thursday at a McDonald's in Cocoa, Florida, when Young pulled up to the drive-thru for the second time that evening and "requested a meal which was not on the menu," according to an arrest affidavit.
The worker told Young that the menu item wasn't available and asked her why she was mad, prompting Young to allegedly brandish a black handgun and say that she'll "push her ‘s--- back,'" according to the affidavit.
WENDY'S TEEN EMPLOYEE RECOVERING AFTER BEING SHOT THROUGH DRIVE-THRU
Young then went to second drive-thru window and grabbed the gun and put it in her lap, the other worker told officers.
The McDonald's employees called 911 and responding officers made contact with Young, who allegedly had a black M&P Shield handgun with a drum-style magazine capable of carrying 50 rounds in her passenger seat.
Young was booked into jail on a combined $7,500 bond in the early hours of Friday morning, according to jail records. She was released on Saturday. Court records did not list an attorney.
It's the second time this year that McDonald's workers in Florida have been threatened with a firearm for a seemingly trivial reason. Last month, 24-year-old Amari Bente Hendricks allegedly waved a loaded handgun at drive-thru workers in Altamonte Springs because she did not receive a free cookie.
Asteroid to fly between Earth and the Moon this week: reportOn March 21, 2023
A 200-foot asteroid discovered in February is expe… Read more
Astronomy fanatics may be in for a treat this Saturday as an estimated 200-foot asteroid is expected to "zip" past Earth in about half the distance from the surface of the planet to the Moon, according to a report.
EarthSky.org, a website that specializes in science-based reporting about the cosmos reported that asteroid 2023 DZ2 will make its closest approach to Earth on March 25 at about 3:52 p.m. EDT at a speed of 17,403 miles per hour.
But even though that may seem really fast on Earth, when looking at objects in space it may not appear that fast. Instead, it will likely look like a star moving slowly across the sky.
MYSTERIOUS STREAKS OF LIGHT SEEN IN CALIFORNIA SKY EXPLAINED
DZ2 was discovered in February by astronomers at the La Palma observatory in the Canary Islands, Spain.
The asteroid’s near-Earth approach this week has no chance of hitting earth, but it will give astronomers and specialists a close view of the object to get a better understanding of it and its orbit.
In fact, the space rock is expected to make another Earthly approach on March 27, 2026, according to NASA, and has a 1-in-38,000,000 chance of striking our planet.
WEBB TELESCOPE CAPTURES STUNNING IMAGE OF STAR ON CUSP OF SUPERNOVA 15K LIGHT-YEARS AWAY
Once astronomers view the object this weekend and process lots of calculations, that likelihood could change.
The close approach will also give scientists a better idea of the asteroid’s size, which could be anywhere from 43-95 meters, or 141-312 feet, in diameter.
Asteroid DZ2, EarthSky.org reported, is a member of the Apollo family of asteroids and orbits the sun every 3.16 years.
The meteor that exploded over Russia’s Ural Mountains in Chelyabinsk in February 2013 was about 49 feet wide and weight 10 tons. When it entered the atmosphere, it was moving at about 33,000 mph and shattered into pieces about 18-32 miles above the ground, injuring 1,100 people (mostly from flying glass.)
In 2018, the 2018 GE3 asteroid was discovered just one day before it skimmed past Earth in a "surprise" flyby. 2018 GE3 was estimated to be 119,500 miles from Earth’s atmosphere at its closest point and had a diameter of 131 to 328 feet.
The asteroids that make up the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter can measure about 580 miles across, so 2018 GE3 and 2023 DZ2 are small in comparison.
