Don't miss out on big savings during Memorial Day

Memorial Day is Monday, May 27 – the unofficial start of the summer. You’re going to find some of the best sales since the start of the year. This Memorial Day weekend actually started in March, when Amazon kicked off its Memorial Day sale by taking 60% off shoes and accessories.

Memorial Day celebrates the brave men and women who died serving our country. Does bargain shopping diminish their gift to us? Absolutely not. In fact, it’s a fine tribute. Enjoying the freedoms provided for us by those who fell is a reminder of our blessings.

“We’re encouraged to see that such a high percentage of consumers plan to take advantage of Memorial Day weekend sales as May is a great time to get deep discounts on apparel, home goods and gym memberships,” says Mike Spankie, senior merchandising manager of Deals2Buy.com.

Keep the memories of the fallen in your heart, teach your children why Memorial Day matters, and honor our heroes by living your American Dream. If your American Dream means getting the most out of your hard-earned dollars, this is the article for you.

Additional retailers that offered some of the best clothing sales last year included ShopEcko, Old Navy, Betsey Johnson, and Backcountry.” Look for savings of up to 50% off select sunglasses and get free second-day shipping at SunglassHut.com.

Electronics sales

Laptops and Electronics

Laptop deals are still going strong, and we can expect to see Memorial Day sales from Fry's Electronics, Dell Home, and MacMall – as we did last year.” However, Dealnews.com goes on to recommend holding off until later in the summer when you can take advantage of back-to-school laptop sales and save a few extra bucks, or snag a laptop bundle.

On the other hand, the folks at Deals2Buy.com feel differently. According to a recent survey, consumers are in the market for good deals on technology. The survey found that 50% of consumers would be willing to pay less for an older laptop once a new one is released.“I would caution that May is not typically when we see the deepest discounts on new electronics, but if you’re willing to buy an older model, you’ll always get a cost benefit,” says Spankie. You can save up to 66% off computers, TV’s, Blu-Ray players, cameras, appliances and much more at BestBuy. Offers are changing daily between now and June 1, so check back often.

      Three militants loyal to the Islamic State group (ISIS) have been killed by wild boars as they planned to ambush Iraqi tribesmen opposed to the group, according to a local anti-ISIS leader. At least eight ISIS fighters had reportedly taken cover among dense reeds in Iraq's al-Rashad region, about 55 miles southwest of Kirkuk, in preparation for a surprise attack on local anti-ISIS tribesman when a herd of wild boars attacked the jihadists on Sunday, killing three. The militants likely disturbed the notoriously short-tempered animals, said Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and head of the group of local tribesmen who took up arms after ISIS took control of the nearby town of Hawija.

Jenner, who appeared to promote her memoir, “The Secrets of My Life,” continuously cut off Kelly Ripa and guest co-host, John Leguizamo. At one point, Jenner even turned the tables on Ripa, asking when she first identified as a female. “Just think about that,” she said, pointing her manicured finger at Ripa. “When did you know you were a girl?” Jenner then made Leguizamo her target, asking him how he enjoyed dressing in drag in the 1995 comedy, “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything!

    • Ancient people left a frightening message for us, and scientists just found it

      10,000 years from now (assuming humans haven't been wiped out by a plague, space rock, or our own destructive tendencies), it'll probably be fairly easy for the average person to research what life was like in 2017. For us here today, finding out what life was like in 11,000BC is much more challenging, but by studying ancient stone carvings and pairing the somewhat confusing messages with archeological data, researchers believe they've discovered concrete evidence of an apocalyptic event that may have altered the future of mankind: a comet strike. The study, performed by a team of researchers from the University of Edinburgh ( PDF ), suggests that a potentially cataclysmic comet strike rapidly and dramatically altered the Earth's climate for hundreds of years, sending humanity into a mini ice age with nearly glacial conditions. The time period when this occurred is known as the Younger Dryas, and has been well documented thanks to ample evidence of the cooling found in core samples, but its cause has been theorized and debated for a long while. Now, thanks to stone carvings left by ancient people in modern day Turkey, researchers believe that a comet was the culprit. The carvings are remarkably preserved and appear to have been created to document an apocalyptic event which devastated the land. Figures depicted in the carvings, including apparently deceased, headless human bodies and other wildlife, were made at around the time the Younger Dryas began, suggesting that the event archived in stone could have been the same one that caused the thousand-year cold snap. The carvings were found at what is considered to be one of the oldest and most important temple sites on the planet, and for the images to appear there suggests that they have enormous historical significance. The Younger Dryas is often credited with pushing ancient humans to band together out of pure necessity, forming the foundation of modern agriculture and other huge advancements in civilization. The idea that a comet may have been responsible for pushing humanity forward is an extremely interesting, and potentially frightening possibility. The findings are far from an iron clad confirmation, but the timing matches up shockingly well, and would have to be a fantastic coincidence if the two events are actually unrelated.

According to the filing, the couple have 10 children with four under age 18, including Elizabeth Thomas. Elizabeth went missing in early March after law enforcement officials said Tad Cummins kidnapped her, taking her from a restaurant near her home in Columbia, Tenn., and eluding law enforcement for 38 days before they were captured last week in Cecilville, California. Federal court documents show the 50-year-old Cummins admitted to switching vehicle license plates twice, disabled his vehicle's GPS system, used aliases, altered his appearance, paid only in cash and used back roads during his nearly six weeks on the run.
