Look Ahead America Says Pennsylvania Report Delegitimizes Biden’s Presidency 

Washington, DC (April 28, 2022)--– Look Ahead America (LAA) has finally released the long-awaited Pennsylvania Report today. Using publicly available data, the report shows conclusively that not only did the number of illegally ballots in Pennsylvania determine the outcome of the presidential election, but also the state treasurer election. This report, combined with LAA’s Georgia and Wisconsin Reports that reached the same conclusion, now puts the outcome of the 2020 General Election into question beyond a reasonable doubt. Matt Braynard, LAA’s Executive Director, made the following statement: Despite being a new and nimble organization with a limited budget, we have now conclusively determined that illegal ballots were determinative in the outcome of the US Presidential election. The states of Georgia, Wisconsin, and now Pennsylvania combined constitute forty-six electoral votes—more than enough to have swung the election. Ian Camacho, LAA’s Director of Research, made the following statement: This research establishes that... Read more →

The Origin of Backgammon: The 5,000-Year-Old Board Game

Backgammon is one of the world’s oldest games, although it could be argued that it is not the most popular board game to have existed. Indeed, there have been a number of other board games to have been released over the years that will be synonymous with the market and will instantly be spoken about when an individual is asked to name one. Of course, there have been various different versions and updates to the classic game, though, including the availability of table online, thus giving players who wish to play the game on a digital platform the opportunity to do so and perhaps meet the needs of gamers today. Many of us use electronic devices in the modern era, which is why it could be argued that the online version was needed. Nonetheless, it would seem not many in the world would know the origins of this classic game,... Read more →

How installing sheds on just ground

The first thing we recommend is to determine the area where you will play with a ball, the ball should bounce well on it, and also determine the overhang of the shield. Do not forget to order an area markup service, after you have confirmed that it is safe to dig in this place and after you can proceed with the first part of the work. To install most basketballs, you need to dig 4 feet, install rebars, install J bolts, install a plate and wait 2-3 days for concrete curing. After that, you can start assembling the frame and backboard. I am sure that you will definitely have additional equipment for installation, such as netting and lighting, Installing it will nicely complete the overall picture of those sports equipment.

CNB Hunting Delaware: Deer Harvest Announced for 2021/22 Hunting Season

While Harvest Numbers Decreased, Venison Donations Increased A succesful Delaware hunter Delaware hunters reported harvesting 15,383 deer during the 2021/22 hunting season, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control announced today. The harvest was 10.9% lower than the 2020/21 record harvest of 17,265 deer, but marked the ninth consecutive year that the Delaware harvest exceeded 14,000 deer. The smaller harvest could be attributable to various factors, including natural food availability, hunter effort or the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife’s management of the deer population to improve the quality of the herd and reduce agricultural crop damage.
