A historic meeting between Israel's prime minister and Saudi Arabia's crown prince has sent a strong signal to allies and enemies alike that the two countries remain deeply committed to containing their common foe Iran. Last Sunday's covert meeting in the Saudi city of Neom, confirmed by Israeli officials but publicly denied by Riyadh, conveyed a coordinated message to U.S. President-elect Joe Biden that Washington's main allies in the region are closing ranks. It was the first publicly confirmed visit to Saudi Arabia by an Israeli leader and a meeting that was unthinkable until recently as the two countries do not have formal diplomatic relations.
My mother left a home in Savannah with 5 acres. I want to sell. My brother threatened to ‘ruin me’ and sue me for harassment
In September, our mom died without a will in Chatham County, Ga. I do not want to own her house and five acres in the country in Savannah, but my two siblings refuse to sell it and split the estate. My brother threatened to “ruin me” when I told him that he and our sister could either buy the property or it would be sold. My sister also does not want to sell the property because it has been in the family for 90 years.

An Italian television programme has been suspended after airing a segment of a model in high heels and leather shorts giving a tutorial on how women should go supermarket shopping in a sexy and provocative way. MPs from across the political spectrum called for an explanation of how the segment was allowed to air on RAI, the national broadcaster, while campaigners said it was highly offensive and put the cause of feminism in Italy back by decades. The programme was ridiculed on social media, with many Italians saying it represented a hopelessly outdated view of the role of women in society and expectations of how they should behave. Compounding the criticism was the fact that the programme, called Detto Fatto (Said and Done), aired on Tuesday, on the eve of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
I’m a ‘young 68’ with $3,200 a month in Social Security and don’t want it taxed — where should I retire north or west of Colorado?
I am finishing 50 years in the airline industry next year, and I am looking to relocate to anywhere north or west of Colorado (including Colorado) — but not California because of the taxes. I will have approximately $3,200 a month in Social Security and will hopefully get a part-time job on top of that. The location cannot tax Social Security, and I prefer no state income tax.
