Ever since a chef told me that clams are safer to eat than oysters or mussels, I haven't been afraid to order clams whenever I see them in restaurant menus. Clams are one of the most delicious shellfish there is. They're simply irresistible when cooked with garlic and butter or in a slightly spicy tomato sauce.   Lately I've been cooking clams at home, too. Here's an easy recipe for clams in a vinegar-soy sauce. Make sure to buy clams that are tightly closed---which means they're still alive. Clams that have opened before they're cooked are dead and should be discarded faster than you can say halaan. By no means should you ever attempt to cook them.   Conversely, on...Keep on reading: Easy clam dish in vinegar-soy sauce

The vote showed that so far, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been successful in her effort to prevent a Democratic stampede toward impeachment before additional evidence is developed that could win over a public that has so far been skeptical about ousting...Keep on reading: House blocks maverick Democrat’s Trump impeachment effort

Man in NW China executed after decades-long blood feud

      BEIJING --- A man in northwest China was executed Wednesday for killing three neighbors in apparent revenge for his mother's death more than two decades earlier.

The court statement detailed the two families' longstanding enmity --- a blood feud that dates back to 1996. That year, a dispute between Zhang's mother and one of the brothers, then 17-year-old Wang Zhengjun, resulted in her succumbing to a fatal injury.
