It opened in September of 2021 and has found quite the following. “We are in Doral, but we are right next to the 826 and 836 expressways.

Casa Mariano is named after Executive Chef and owner Mariano Araya. He’s bold in the kitchen, but a bit shy on camera so Tapia explains the vibe. “Actually, this is Chef Mariano’s house. That’s the dining room. This is the living room and the wine library in the back,” explained Tapia. Chef Mariano designed a menu that’s dedicated to both South American and Mediterranean flavors. Back in the kitchen, chef Mariano put his skills to the test with some labor-intensive dishes like the black ink seafood risotto in a Singapore laska sauce. Every dish is...

    CUSTER, South Dakota — Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD) told Breitbart News that her background farming and ranching informs her decision-making in politics, serving as a foundation for what she calls her “problem-solving, common-sense approach” to governing. “This is a special place,” Noem said in an interview in Custer State Park after its annual Governor’s Buffalo Roundup. “These traditions really remind people of our history and they remind us of where we all come from. We love it—we just think it reconnects us to the outdoors and to other people.” Noem had just finished riding in the annual roundup of about 1,400 buffalo—one of the last remaining herds in the United States, kept on the state park lands—where she and dozens of others on horseback and even more in pickup trucks gather the creatures from their natural grazing lands, round them up, and drive them to corrals once a year. The calves are branded and immunized at the corrals and some of the buffalo are auctioned off to keep the state’s herd at a consistent number around 1,400. Noem herself has...
    While hundreds of thousands of poor migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. have trekked on foot from South and Central America in the last eight months, there has also been a rise in middle class migrants flooding the southern border. These so-called middle class migrants often fly to Mexico's northern border on pre-planned flights and cross into the U.S. by cab or another car hire, a Border Patrol chief in Arizona told the Wall Street Journal. 'They got off the plane and went to a cab or to a bus,' Chris Clem, Border Patrol's chief patrol agent in Yuma, said. 'They literally were driven up and just walked up and turned themselves over to us,' he said in describing the last leg of more affluent migrants' trip over the U.S.-Mexico border. Clem said that his team regularly encounters migrants who claim they took flights to a northern Mexican border city before crossing illegally into the U.S. These middle class migrants also spent less time in shelters than their poorer counterparts. While many migrants from more poor countries, like Haiti and Northern Triangle...
    The collapse of the American project in Afghanistan may fade fast from the news here, but don't be fooled. It couldn't be more significant in ways few in this country can even begin to grasp. "Remember, this is not Saigon," Secretary of State Antony Blinken told a television audience on August 15th, the day the Taliban swept into the Afghan capital, pausing to pose for photos in the grandly gilded presidential palace. He was dutifully echoing his boss, President Joe Biden, who had earlier rejected any comparison with the fall of the South Vietnamese capital, Saigon, in 1975, insisting that "there's going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of an embassy of the United States from Afghanistan. It is not at all comparable." Both were right, but not in the ways they intended. Indeed, the collapse of Kabul was not comparable. It was worse, incomparably so. And its implications for the future of U.S. global power are far more serious than the loss of Saigon. On the surface, similarities abound. In both South...
    TWENTY years ago Al Qaeda was plotting the largest and most destructive terrorist attack in history.  Here is what we know about the fanatic’s motivation to carry out mass murder.   1Smoke pours from the twin towers of the World Trade Center after they were hit by two hijacked airliners in a terrorist attackCredit: Getty Why did Al Qaeda attack the United States? Before the 9/11 attacks, Al Qaeda issued proclamations. Some believe they provide insight into the motivations. One was the fatwā of August 1996 and the other was a shorter fatwa in February 1998. The terror group leader Osama bin Laden, penned a November 2002 "Letter to America".

    The Spanish football clubs will debate this Thursday whether or not to yield their players to the South American teams, given the increase in days of the next two Conmebol World Cup qualification windows, with FIFA’s warning on the table about the consequences of not do it. The extension by two days of the qualifying windows for the Qatar 2022 World Cup scheduled for September and October, which have gone from nine days to eleven due to the suspension of the March 2021 break following a decision by the FIFA Council last year August 7, is at the origin of the resistance of the Spanish teams. The first window, whose meetings are scheduled between September 2 and 10, currently involves 25 footballers from 13 Spanish clubs, in the absence of knowing the calls for Ecuador and Venezuela. Given that the first league match after the break, the fourth of LaLiga Santander, is scheduled between September 10 and 13, some clubs would have very little chance of having their players on that match, with a transatlantic trip in between. For...

"I thought there was an indication the South was peaking, and I think it's pretty clear right now the South has peaked," the former Food and Drug Administration commissioner said. "It doesn't feel that way because we still have a lot of new infections on a day-over-day basis, and the hospitals still have some very hard weeks ahead," he acknowledged. "They're still going to get maxed out as the infections start to decline." Gottlieb's comments on "Squawk Box" came as the seven-day average of new daily coronavirus infections nationwide in the U.S. stood at roughly 147,300, according to a CNBC analysis of Johns Hopkins University data. That's up 13% from a week ago. Many Southern states, particularly in areas with lower Covid vaccination rates such as parts of Louisiana and Arkansas, were among the first places in the U.S. to see...

    From above, it seems ordinary: a simple white house an hour northwest of Atlanta. But when the Noble Hill school was constructed nearly a century ago, it was revolutionary. Marian Coleman and four generations of her family were educated at the school — one of the thousands built between 1912 and 1937 that transformed African-American education in the rural South. "We weren't really free to do, or to think that we could accomplish more," she told CBS News' Michelle Miller. "But when we were able to get the school, and this made the foundation so we could really believe in ourselves. And the teachers helped us to know that we were able to move forward now." The institutions became known as Rosenwald schools, named after wealthy industrialist Julius Rosenwald – the president of retail giant Sears. They provided an opportunity for hundreds of thousands of poor African Americans to be educated, and their construction has been called one of the most effective philanthropic endeavors of the 20th century. Photographer Andrew Feiler is telling the story of the schools in...

    The caption reads "Union Soldiers Cemetery, 'Martyrs of the Race Course,' Charleston, S.C." It has become a Daily Kos tradition for me to republish this Memorial Day story I wrote in 2016. I have ancestors, Black and white, who fought for the Union during the Civil War. This is posted in their honor. —DOV A pencil drawing and a grainy photo in the Library of Congress are all that is left of the cemetery where 257 Union soldiers were buried after the Civil War, on what had been a race course in Charleston, South Carolina.   Nor has much been written about the memorial celebration held by more than 10,000 mostly newly freed blacks, which was one of the first, if not the first memorial held for those who fought to end slavery.

    Enzo Perez was River's makeshift keeper for the night. Getty/Pool River Plate beat Santa Fe 2-1 in the group stages of the Copa Libertadores on Wednesday. That's despite it playing with a midfielder in goal and no substitutes after a COVID outbreak. Midfielder Enzo Perez put in a heroic man of the match display between the sticks. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Soccer team River Plate was forced to play its Copa Libertadores group stage match against Santa Fe on Wednesday with a midfielder in goal and no substitutes after a mass COVID outbreak in its squad. That didn't stop the Argentine outfit securing a vital 2-1 victory, however, to move within touching distance of the tournament's knockout rounds.  River Plate had been hit with outbreak of coronavirus which saw 20 players test positive and excluded for the fixture.  Among those ruled out were four goalkeepers, and the club's request to register its fifth and sixth-choice goalkeepers for the game was rejected by South America's governing body, CONMEBOL.

    America’s neighbors to the north are crossing the closed Canada-U.S. border to take American COVID-19 vaccines. Vaccine demand is declining in the U.S., where roughly 60% of adults have received at least one shot and more than 107 million are fully vaccinated. Those numbers have inspired more and more Canadians to cross the border for a shot in the USA, rather than wait months to get one in Canada, according to Reuters. Even though about one-third of Canadians have received at least one dose of a vaccine, only three percent have been fully inoculated. That’s because Canadians are waiting up to four months between doses, compared to the three to four weeks Americans have waited between shots of Moderna or Pfizer’s vaccine.

    A California community college professor has slammed one of her 19-year-old students after he called police 'heroes'. The student, Braden Ellis, got into the heated exchange with his communications professor at Cypress College after he gave a Zoom presentation about 'cancel culture' in the United States.  Footage of their exchange, which he says came immediately after his presentation, shows the professor repeatedly interrupting Ellis after he defended police.  The female professor, who wasn't immediately identified but is an adjunct professor, kept insisting that police were bad.  At one point, she suggested police were created in the South to track down runaway slaves and that it was a form of systemic racism.  'I think cops are heroes,' Ellis said at the beginning of the exchange.  The student, Braden Ellis, got into the heated exchange with his unidentified communications professor at Cypress College in California after he gave a Zoom presentation about 'cancel culture' and defending police He was immediately interrupted by the professor, saying: 'All of them?'

    Honolulu (CNN)The top US general met his South Korean and Japanese counterparts in Hawaii Thursday, emphasizing America's commitment to "long-term peace and stability in the region" and underscoring a broader US shift from the Middle East to China.Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley reaffirmed the US commitment to two of its closest allies in Asia, including its preparedness to provide deterrence backed by the "full spectrum" of America's military capabilities.Though a readout of the trilateral meeting makes no explicit mention of China, the reference to the importance of a "rules-based international order" and America's preparedness to provide "extended deterrence" backed by a "full spectrum" of military capabilities is clearly directed at what the Pentagon has called the country's "pacing challenge" and "near-peer competitor."During their first in-person meeting since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Milley and other top military officials in the region also shared their concerns about North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

    Editor’s note: We endeavor to bring you the top voices on current events representing a range of perspectives. Below is a column arguing that the U.S. should protect Taiwan in the event of an invasion from China. You can find a counterpoint here, where Professor Amitai Etzioni argues that the U.S. should not risk an all-out war with China over Taiwan. How should the US respond in the event of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan?  The answer to this question is often presumed to be the same as if an adversary were to invade NATO, Japan or South Korea, in which case the United States would respond promptly andforcefully to repel the adversary.  But the reality is that Taiwan is not quite the same as any of these other partners.  To begin with, the United States does not diplomatically “recognize” Taiwan, or more specifically, the Republic of China (ROC). In 1979, the United States switched recognition from the ROC to recognizing the People’s Republic of China. (Beijing only allows you to have formal diplomatic relations with one or the other.)

    The villains from 90s movies who we love to hate Businesses That Millennials Have Killed (and Why It’s for the Best) "Changed the Game" is a Yahoo Sports series dedicated to the women who are often overlooked, under-appreciated or simply deserve more flowers for their contributions to women's sports history. © Provided by Yahoo! Sports There are athletic prodigies, and then there is Mariana Pajón. Born in Medellin, Colombia, Pajón first sat on a BMX bike at four years old. Just a year later she won her first national championship, and she claimed her first world championship at only 9. She's done pretty much nothing but win since, and became an icon in her country in the process. Accomplishments could fill a book Now 30 years old, Pajón's list of honors, championships and titles is so long that on her personal website there are about 35 listed and then an "among others" addendum. One imagines listing every one would become more of a book than some bullet points. But there are some significant ones indeed. Pajón is a two-time...
    The United States and South Korea began joint military maneuvers last week, and Rodong Sinmun, as quoted by South Korean news agency Yonhap, reported a statement by Kim Yo Jong in which she offered “a advice to the new American administration which is trying to spread a smell of powder on our country “. “If you want to rest easy for the next four years (duration of an American presidential mandate, editor’s note), you would do well not to do anything that makes you lose sleep,” said Kim, according to Rodong Sinmun. This is the first explicit reference, without however naming it, to the new American president on behalf of this country equipped with the nuclear weapon, more than four months after the election of Joe Biden to the succession of Donald Trump. . Donald Trump’s atypical foreign policy had given rise to exchanges of insults and threats of war with Kim Jong Un, followed by an extraordinary diplomatic honeymoon marked by summits between the two leaders. These relations did not ultimately lead to progress towards a denuclearization of...

    (CNN)On April 11, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln delivered what would be his last speech from a window at the White House to the crowd below. They had gathered there expecting a celebratory speech on Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's surrender to Ulysses S. Grant just two days earlier. But that evening, Lincoln's speech was about Reconstruction, readmitting Louisiana into the Union and a proposal for "giving the benefit of public schools equally to Black and White, and empowering the Legislature to confer the elective franchise upon the colored man."Plantation-owning elites, Southern Democrats and White supremacists, however, would not easily concede political power to those who had so recently been their slaves. That evening among the crowd of listeners was an enraged John Wilkes Booth, who would go on to assassinate the President just three days later at Ford's Theatre. For decades after Lincoln's death, White supremacists would wage a war of intimidation, murder and massacre on anyone, Black or White, who dared covet a share of their power. Yet, Black people persisted. And between 1865 and 1880, over 1,500 Black men took political...
    (CNN)The unthinkable could be about to happen.Chilean football club Colo-Colo, the biggest and most successful club in the country, faces relegation from the top division for the first time in its 96-year history. Though the parallels are by no means exact, it would be something similar to seeing Manchester United relegated from the Premier League or Real Madrid from La Liga.Colo-Colo's date with destiny is in the city of Talca, around 250 kilometers south of Santiago, where it will face Universidad de Concepcion in a single playoff match on Wednesday to determine which side will be relegated to Chile second division -- or 'Primera B.'While the overwhelming majority of fans have stuck by the players during the lowest point in the club's history, one sinister sign put up outside of the club's complex read: "Win or we kill you."It should be emphasized that the actions of only a handful of fans shouldn't overshadow the unconditional support shown by the majority; indeed, forward Javier Parraguez posted a video to his Instagram account marveling at the thousands of supporters who had gathered...
    New York : The coach of Colombia, Reinaldo Rueda, joined this Thursday to the proposal of his colleague from Peru, the Argentine Ricardo Gareca, which has asked to postpone the restart in March of the South American qualifiers of the Qatar World Cup for the COVID-19 pandemic. Gareca proposed on January 5 to Conmebol postpone the matches of the next two qualifying dates, scheduled within a month, given the lack of training and preparation matches for the ten teams due to the restrictions imposed by the outbreak of the new coronavirus. Most Premier League clubs do not want to give up their players for the next round of South American Playoff games.

    Brazil's 'super-covid' variant has arrived in the US with a first case in a Minnesota resident who recently returned from the hard-hit South American country.  The variant - known as P1 - is thought to be at least 50 percent more infectious.  It comes after President Biden reinstated travel bans blocking people travelers from entering the US from several countries with dangerous variants, including the UK and Brazil and added South Africa to the list.  But it was far too late. The Twin Cities resident tested positive for COVID019 on January 9 and was already ill by then   Brazil's variant is particularly worrisome because its mutations may render vaccines less effective.  The Brazilian variant has a mutation in its spike protein (circled in yellow) that makes it more contagious, capable of reinfection and potentially more immune to vaccines  The 
    Defense players celebrate with the trophy by winning the Copa Sudamericana against Club Lanús at the Mario Alberto Kempes stadium in Córdoba (Argentina). (Free Press Photo: .) El Halcón beat Garnet in all facets of the game and did not let his prey breathe, trapped between the good football of Crespo’s men, who won what is the first title in history for Defensa y Justicia, a team founded in 1935. The goal that opened the can was scored by the central Frías, but he built it, pulling lines, the entire defense sector of Defense and Justice: looking for the left wing first, reaching almost to the end of the field and crossing the ball to the small area.

Alyssa Feary is one of about 7,000 students at Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville, Georgia, near where her dad lives, and her time in the US — and the deep south in particular — has been enlightening. In a video that's been watched half a million times, Alyssa shares some of her thoughts, including that southerners say 'y'all' too much and that Americans have a misconception that there is one single British accent.

    Roger Sollenberger October 26, 2020 3:48PM (UTC) Fox Business host and indefatigable Trump ally Lou Dobbs ripped into Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., over the weekend, telling his overwhelmingly conservative audience in the final countdown to Election Day that he did not know "why anyone" would vote for a candidate who had "betrayed the American people."  "Just to be clear I don't know why anyone in the great state of South Carolina would ever vote for Lindsey Graham," Dobbs said on his Friday broadcast. "It's just outrageous. This is the guy who keeps saying, 'Stay tuned.' He said he was going to get to the bottom of Obamagate with the Judiciary Committee, which has been a year and a half, actually longer, of absolute inert — inert — response to these pressing issues of our day." : "Obamagate" is a reference to a widely discredited conspiracy theory alleging that former President Barack Obama ordered his administration to spy on then-candidate Donald Trump's 2016 campaign. Dobbs then invoked President Trump's own words in a stinging series of critiques of the Republican senator, who a recent poll found...
    Fox Business host Lou Dobbs pummeled Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Friday, saying live on-air that he does not know why "anyone" would vote for Graham. The comments from the pro-Trump commentator came as Graham fights for his Senate career in a tight election battle with Democrat Jaime Harrison. Recent polling indicates Graham is ahead of Harrison, albeit by just a handful of points.What did Dobbs say?The Fox Business host pummeled Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and encouraged South Carolinians to vote Graham out of office. Dobbs was enraged over Graham's commitment to hold hearings on social media censorship with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey after Election Day. The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to subpoena both social media giants this week. "I don't know why anyone in the great state of South Carolina would ever vote for Lindsey Graham. It's just outrageous," Dobbs said. "This is the guy who keeps saying, 'Stay tuned.' He said he would get to the bottom of Obamagate with the Judiciary Committee, which has been a year...
    Fox Business host Lou Dobbs sent a message to South Carolinans on Friday: Feel free to vote Sen. Lindsey Graham out of office in November. Dobbs, a veteran TV host and staunch supporter of President Trump, criticized the South Carolina Republican over his decision not to subpoena the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter after concerns were raised about potential liberal bias in their fact-checking and social media monitoring of news articles and comments. Graham had announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee, which he chairs, were close to getting a voluntary appearance by the heads of the company, and he would wait until after the Nov. 3 election to have a hearing with the Silicon Valley executives. But, Dobbs didn't stop there when attacking Graham. Dobbs pointed to unanswered questions regarding an investigation led by Graham into whether Obama administration officials had improperly targeted President Trump's 2016 presidential campaign amid the Russia investigation. Graham has long gone on cable news shows hinting at major developments in his investigation, but substantial information has yet to come out about what occurred...
    Lovecraft Country episode 6 brought the audience to Korea. So did it accurately portray the mid-20th-century war? If you were to pick an American-involved conflict in the modern era that is often glossed over to the point of near erasure from the American conscious, it would most likely be the Korean War. Think of it like the War of 1812. We know it happened, the name registers, but if called upon to give the barest of facts, the average American would draw a blank. It’s possible that this is due to both wars ending in stalemates rather than victories or devastating losses. In fact, the Korean War technically never ended. So why would Lovecraft Country frame the war in “Meet Me in Daegu” as an internal conflict between allies, South Korea and the U.S., instead of emphasizing American assistance to South Korea? One word, imperialism. Lovecraft Country is a series devoted to unpacking racism at its root and how its insidious nature bleeds into its victims until they, too, begin to spread its poison. Atticus, along with the rest of...
    The white professor of African American studies who faked being black, deceiving colleagues and students for years, will not teaching at George Washington University this semester, the school announced Friday.  The university's history department said it was 'shocked and appalled' to learn that 38-year-old Jessica Krug was a race faker when she revealed her true identity in a Medium post earlier this week.  An update from the university said they were continuing to investigate Krug's revelation as calls mount for her to be fired. It comes as a Bronx activist claimed that Krug also said she was a Puerto Rican from the South Bronx and attempted to establish herself under that persona, adding another layer to her deception.    Despite assuming various black identities over the years, Jessica Krug revealed in a Medium blog post on Thursday she is actually white and that she has been deceiving her colleagues  The university's history department said it was 'shocked and appalled' to learn that 38-year-old Jessica Krug was a race faker when she revealed her true identity in a Medium post....
    (CNN)Sam Cornelius knew that something was amiss when his job performance review unexpectedly took a huge hit one year. It was 2013, and Cornelius had been working as a software engineer in the US for an Indian-headquartered information technology company for five years. Up until then, he said he had been given no indication that his work was lacking in any way. He could think of nothing that would have prompted his performance rating to drop two levels from the previous year -- except for an incident a month earlier at a dinner with his Indian manager and an American client.During that dinner, the client, who was White, brought up the subject of caste discrimination in India, Cornelius said. He wanted to get the perspective of Cornelius and his manager, who were both born and raised in India.India's caste system is a fixed system of social hierarchy that historically defined a person's societal rank and occupation based on the family they were born into. It dates back thousands of years, with its roots in Hindu scriptures, and has since spread...
