‘I can’t pay my rent. I have no food.’ Unemployed workers are on edge awaiting slow-moving jobless benefits

On Facebook groups, people swap tips about how to game the unemployment system. One trick: When calling the state Department of Unemployment Assistance, pressing “6″ to change a password will get a live person on the phone — though that person probably won’t be able to help with an unpaid claim.

    What is the most searched Super Bowl food by state in 2021?

    This year’s map does not disappoint. For every state that’s searching for things that should be at a Super Bowl party (Colorado and Massachusetts with their chili, any of the states that are searching for a dip), there are even more states searching for things that shouldn’t be anywhere near a Super Bowl party. We will now shame those states.

    Nebraska: Labneh

    Cornhusker State cuisine tends to skew solidly Midwestern: Think casseroles, seven-layer dips and the like. But send a Nebraskan to a Super Bowl party and things apparently take a more Middle Eastern turn with this strained yogurt dip.

    Awkward moment? Rough day? Slice of cake? A hot cup of tea will fix almost anything

    Karina Bland with her mom, Marilyn, enjoying a cup of tea on Mother’s Day.

    I’ve taken to saying, “Right. You up for a cuppa?”

    Maybe it reminds me of my mom. She’s from New Zealand and drinks a lot of tea. She pops the kettle on first thing in the morning and another half dozen times throughout the day. (Maybe more often than that.)
