The 6 Best Ski Glove Liners

Hitting the slopes can be an exhilarating and rewarding experience, but when your fingers start to lose movement because they're so cold (even while wearing gloves), the fun quickly wanes. The best ski glove liners provide an indispensable, moisture-wicking layer of warmth without any added bulk. The most critical factor to look at in liners is fabric. As ski gloves are made with heat retention in mind, you'll find plenty of options made with temperature-regulating yarns like wool or silk, as well as synthetic fleece. Gloves constructed with merino wool will offer the greatest warmth because the fiber naturally traps heat, while silk will retain slightly less warmth but have a lighter-weight, smoother texture. Synthetic fabrics offer a balanced alternative at a more affordable price point,

As Colorado moves to reintroduce wolves, some states look to step up wolf kills

By Matthew Brown and Iris Samuels, The Associated Press BILLINGS, Mont. — Payments for dead wolves. Unlimited hunting of the animals. Shooting wolves from the air. Wolf hunting policies in some states are taking an aggressive turn, as Republican lawmakers and conservative hunting groups push to curb their numbers and propose tactics shunned by many wildlife managers. In Montana, lawmakers are advancing measures to allow shooting wolves at night and payments to hunters reminiscent of bounties that widely exterminated the species last century. Idaho legislation would allow hunters to shoot them from motorized parachutes, ATVs or snowmobiles year-round with no limits in most areas. And in Wisconsin, just weeks after President Donald Trump’s administration lifted protections for wolves in the

Tapper Confronts Manchin: ‘Why Were You Fighting for Less Help’ During ‘Cruel Economic Time’?

CNNCNN anchor Jake Tapper relentlessly grilled Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) on Sunday morning over the conservative Democrat’s push to water down the recently passed coronavirus relief bill, wondering aloud why the West Virginia lawmaker fought so hard for “less help” during this “cruel economic time.” Prior to Saturday’s passage of the massive bill, which if signed into law will provide $1400 stimulus checks to tens of millions of Americans, the process was brought to a 12-hour standstill during the Senate’s nearly daylong “vote-a-rama.” This amounted in large part to Democrats working frantically to win support from Manchin. After forcing modifications to the bill that included a reduction in the duration and amount of expanded unemployment benefits, Manchin eventually relented and voted in ...
