Sorry, unknown Bank of American,* there are some answers that even Google doesn’t have, like how tall Christina Loren is.
But, thanks for asking.

Sometimes you hear what you want to hear, what you’re expecting to hear. And then, next thing you know, the New York State Ag. Dept. is raiding a market in Manhattan looking for puppy meat.
Let’s let our friends in Taiwan, NMA-TV, take over:
“Dog meat sold in a Chinatown meat market? It looked like the scoop of the century to James Schugel, a reporter for Minneapolis CBS affiliate WCCO.
Schugel reported that a Chinatown shop had sold dog meat, but it’s actually just a misunderstanding. See, Schugel was investigating a puppy mill operation in Minnesota that apparently sent their dogs to 336 East Broadway in New York City. When he found the address was a Chinese-run meat market, he instantly leapt to the suspicion that the dogs were ending up in the cooking pot.
Schugel called up the staff to confirm his suspicions. But somewhere in the conversation, the words “dog” and “duck” got confused, and the staff confirmed that they do in fact sell meat from all kinds of animals to be eaten. This was enough for Schugel to run off with his report. Husky hash! Schnauzer stew! Keeshond kebabs!
Luckily, it quickly became clear that Schugel was barking up the wrong tree. The misunderstanding was cleared up, and WCCO quietly scrubbed the story from their website. The New York Post correctly quoted the employee of Dak Cheong Meat Market as saying “How could we sell dog meat? This isn’t China. This isn’t Korea!”
“Affirmative action has always been a touchy subject in California, a state with many high achieving white and Asian students. In 1996, California residents passed Proposition 209, which prohibited public schools from considering race in the admissions process. After Proposition 209, the number of Asians in the elite UC college system surged. But now, a California legislator has put forward Bill SB 185, which would allow public universities to consider race. The Berkeley College Republicans fear the effects this bill might have on the UC system. They hosted a “diversity” bake sale to protest the possible effects of the law. Will the bill go through? Maybe – but some foresee it being vetoed next month.
