The task force is establishing a framework to help connect local and federal law enforcement officials to clear up any jurisdictional issues that could arise in the cases.

If you’re looking for home gym equipment options for your at-home winter workouts, we have the list for you.
One of the most popular pieces of equipment of the year is the rowing machine. Rowing is great for your cardiovascular health, and most rowing machines don’t take up a lot of space in your home.

Another option to add to your home gym is simple, yet most people don’t even think about it: a nice exercise mat. You can get a variety of mats, including some that are soft and padded to help with your joints, and even smart mats that can talk to you during your workout. Either way, an exercise mat is a staple for the gym and your knees and back will thank you later. What else should you add to your home gym for your winter workouts?

LIFE HACKS ANYONE CAN USE
Some of us keep our car’s trunk completely empty, while the rest of us keep enough stuff crammed in there to allow us to live in our car for months. In all seriousness, though, there are a few essential things you should always have in your vehicle, just in case.
First, organize what you need in your car into three main categories: maintenance and repair, safety, and convenience. Of course, you can buy premade emergency kits at any automotive store, but building a DIY kit can be more cost-effective and allows you to customize your setup.
