White House, EU Slap New Sanctions On Belarus Officials

The European Union and the United States approved new sanctions aimed at members of the regime of Belarussian President Alyaksander Lukashenko on Friday, months into a brutal crackdown on pro-democracy protests following an Aug. 9 election that Western observers have denounced as rigged.

According to an announcement from the U.S. Department of Treasury, the sanctions will target eight individuals, including the deputy interior minister and the head of the Central Election Commission, who are “responsible for, or have participated in, undermining democratic processes in Belarus.”

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said, in a statement, “The Belarusian people’s democratic aspirations to choose their own leaders and peacefully exercise their rights have been met with violence and oppression from Belarusian officials… The United States and our international partners stand united in imposing costs on those who have undermined Belarusian democracy for years.”

Earlier Friday, E.U. officials announced their organization’s own sanctions against Belarusian

Interior Secretary will lead BLM after judge ousts Pendley from public lands role

Instead the job will be left to Interior Secretary David Bernhardt.

A Montana-based U.S. district judge on Friday ruled William Perry Pendley, the controversial acting director of BLM, “served unlawfully … for 424 days” and enjoined him from continuing in the role.

The decision was in response to a suit from Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D), who argued Pendley, whose nomination to lead the BLM was pulled by the White House last month, was illegally serving in his role through a series of temporary orders.

A Wednesday email makes clear that

Florida Condo Lined With Budweiser Cans Sells Above Asking Price



A modest condominium in Lake Worth, Florida, ended up in a bidding war after hitting the market in August. While the neighborhood and the property itself may have attracted some bidders, more people were likely lured in by its one-of-a-kind décor — and the promise of a lifetime supply of Budweiser.

Its owner, Michael Amelotte, spent 16 years covering the 815-square-foot condo with thousands of Budweiser cans before his death earlier this year. Potential buyers clearly appreciated his handiwork: The two-bedroom unit went into contract above its $100,000 asking price earlier this month, according to the New York Post.

Budweiser’s parent company, Anheuser-Busch, caught wind of the listing and offered to perpetually stock the fridge with cold Bud, as long as the new owner doesn’t do away with the beery interior. (And if you’re wondering — the property’s real estate agent said it doesn’t smell like a barroom floor.)

Defining home with interior design consultant Anjel Herman. | Step Inside

“I wanted us to come home to simplicity and peace, a place that is both elegant and timeless,” she says.

For a couple who loves to entertain and socialize, living in a small, gated community of close-knit neighbors, the kitchen naturally became a focal point of a phased remodel that includes a Step Inside first: a baby grand piano in the kitchen for anyone whose appetite includes a little Elton John with their wine.

“It is the epicenter of every party,” Herman says. “No matter how many guests attend our soirees, they all seem to hover around that island.”

With that in mind, the design consultant removed the much smaller two-tiered island and its large built-in awning and replaced it with the simple but ample, front-and-center serving island you see today.

“The kitchen is light and airy now,” Herman says. “I love the beautiful quartzite countertops and backsplash.”
