If you are among the few who say they're seeing benefits from the new tax law, then look the other way. However, if you need money and believe in miracles, then this jackpot is for you.

Over a half billion dollars is up for grabs tonight, as the Mega Millions jackpot continues to rise! The estimated prize for the next drawing jumps to $502 million ($301 million cash) after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night – the white balls 7, 25, 43, 56 and 59, plus the gold Mega Ball 13.

Good Friday?

Why is it called Good Friday? Christians commemorate Jesus Christ's crucifixion. So why call it Good Friday?

What is so good about the son of God being flogged, then ordered to carry the cross on which he would next be crucified on and die. It's difficult to see what is so good about Friday.

Suggestions have been made that good means that it is holy, which make more sense because, in Spanish, it is called Holy Friday others claim the phrase is a corruption of God's Friday.

The story of Faust, who strikes a deal with the devil and enjoys riches and success during his life on Earth and at the end he will give his body over to Lucifer as payment and spend the rest of time as one damned to Hell.

The message is clear that China will steer any and all decisions involving North Korea. The fact that Kim had to bow to Bejing basically says it all. PRC has always and will continue to be the strength which props up PRK.

North Korea's Kim Jong-un strings are controlled and will continue to be pulled by China's Xi Jinping. The North Korean leader's meeting with Chinese president went well and he has received his orders. A return of the prodigal son before any Trump-Kim meeting is a snub to squeeze the US out the picture for now.
