American Horror Stories Poster Returns to the Murder House

The upcoming American Horror Story spinoff, American Horror Stories, debuts in just under a month and while there is still very little known about the weekly anthology series, FX on Hulu released a new poster for the series on Monday that is giving fans a major hint of what they might be able to expect -- and it looks like we might be headed back to where it all started. The new poster features a figure in the creepy "Rubber Man" suit looking across a red field at the infamous Murder House. What's interesting about the figure in the suit, however, is it appears to be a female form which could make for an interesting twist.

Oakland Eats: Farmhouse Kitchen Thai Cuisine

Looking for a great restaurant for a summer brunch or date night? Check out Farmhouse Kitchen Thai Cuisine if you are located in the Bay Area. They have a few places all around the Bay Area in Oakland and San Francisco. Known for its amazing and elevated Thai cuisine, you are in for a treat. They recently opened up their indoor and outdoor dining and now that the restrictions have been lifted, make sure to hop on Yelp to make a reservation before you come since this place tends to get packed. I’ve also been here a few times before the pandemic and you would have to wait an hour or more just to get a table especially during the weekends. I will be focusing mostly on the Oakland location at Jack London but I have also ordered takeout from their San Francisco location and can confirm that it is pretty much the same thing. There is no parking since it is at Jack London Square so you are facing the waterfront. I would suggest parking in the lot across from the movie theater or if you can find street parking nearby. Known as one of the top restaurants to check out in Oakland, I would highly recommend Farmhouse Kitchen Thai for its delicious dishes and amazing ambiance.

Process for defining droughts in NC a matter of degrees

Over the last few months, eastern North Carolina has experienced the extremes of both drought and flooding – in some areas at the same time. Although the two may seem opposites, state Drought Management Advisory Council Chairman Klaus Altertin explained in a recent interview that areas can have drought and flooding simultaneously. That’s because droughts take months to develop as below-normal rainfall continues week after week, whereas one storm can drop a week’s or a month’s worth of rain in a day, resulting in short term-flooding.
