Toyota claims it's "still powerful, still indestructible." The Land Cruiser has been getting a lot of attention lately, mainly because Toyota recently launched the all-new 300 Series internationally and phased out the model altogether in the United States. It might come as a surprise to some, but the 70 Series is still going strong, despite being originally launched way back in 1984. Not only that, but it's getting an update next year in Australia where it remains quite popular. Available as a pickup truck in single cab and double cab flavors alongside the five-door Wagon and two-door Troop Carrier body styles, the LC70 will receive hardware improvements within the next 12 months. Australian magazine Motoring has learned from local Toyota representatives the reputable off-roader will get a safety upgrade as well as an increased payload capacity.

One year ago today, President Barack Obama announced a radical change in U.S. policy towards the rogue communist government of Cuba, insisting that funneling new money to the Castro regime would empower “democracy and human rights” on the island. Today, the failure of President Obama’s diplomacy is abundantly clear. Cuba’s political detention rates have skyrocketed, the number of Cuban refugees risking their lives to leave the island has soared, and the Cuban government has begun to more openly support terrorist organizations like the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). While Cuban dictator Raúl Castro promised the diplomatic thaw would yield a “prosperous and sustainable socialism,” President Obama simultaneously claimed on American television that “we can do more to support the Cuban people and promote our values through engagement.” The President began implementing diplomatic changes almost immediately, following a speech where he blamed the United States for … [Read more...] about The Cuba Deal One Year Later: More Arrests, More Violence
( CBS New York ) — Stimulus checks have helped families during COVID, especially those that lost income. The pandemic continues, as the Delta variant pushes case numbers up among the unvaccinated in many states. But life around the country is settling into a new normal, and economic conditions are generally improving. The rising economy isn’t lifting everyone, however. Some people’s finances have improved, while other people’s have not. Unemployment still exceeds pre-pandemic levels, even with jobs widely available in certain sectors. Many states have already discontinued the federal unemployment bonus. Meanwhile, the federal eviction moratorium ends this week, and millions of people are still short of food and behind on bills. As of July 15, the new Child Tax Credit is helping some families. Despite the available aid, a fourth stimulus check might better serve those still in need. Can Americans expect another payment in 2021? That question is still part of the national … [Read more...] about Fourth Stimulus Check: Will Another Another Relief Payment Come This Year?
5 LOS ANGELES (AP) — The World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers pulled off a monster deal for ace Max Scherzer and All-Star shortstop Trea Turner, getting the dynamic duo from the Washington Nationals shortly before Friday's trade deadline. Washington acquired a pair of rookies, right-hander Josiah Gray and catcher Keibert Ruiz, and two minor leaguers, righty Gerardo Carrillo and outfielder Donovan Casey. Scherzer had been given permission to speak to the Dodgers to see if he would waive his right to veto any trade, a power he had as a 10-year veteran who has been with his team for at least five years. “Today is heart wrenching as we say goodbye to two of the most accomplished players and two of the best people in our team’s history," Nationals owner Mark Lerner said in a statement. The deal came with the Dodgers three games behind NL West-leading San Francisco. Los Angeles owns the top spot in the wild-card race, 2 1/2 games ahead … [Read more...] about Monster trade: Dodgers get Scherzer, Turner from Nationals
