Hollis Johnson, provided by Published 6:24 am, Sunday, January 14, 2018 Hollis Johnson/Business Insider Shake Shack's new grilled chicken club sandwich is being tested in Brooklyn, New York locations. It'll be available nationwide for a limited time starting January 26. The sandwich is decent, but the chicken itself leaves something to be desired. The "Griddled Chick'n Club" is a decidedly healthy item for a chain that serves cheese fries, hot dogs, and double cheeseburgers. Of course, this isn't the first chicken item on their menu — that honor goes to the deliciously crispy and near-perfect Chick'n Shack fried-chicken sandwich. The sandwich will be rolled out nationally, excluding airport and stadium locations, for a limited time starting January 26. But is it as good as the rest of the chain's chicken? We grabbed one to find out. Right off the bat, the smell is intoxicating. The smoky aroma of bacon dominates the senses — always a good thing.

Steering wheel shaking
If you hit the road after a snowstorm only to find your car shaking at higher speeds, you may not need a mechanic. This can be alarming for some who don't know the cause, and may even lead you stop at the mechanic on the way to work. But there's a fix, and it may not be what you think. Car guru John Paul offers an explanation. Q: Drivers have reported their cars shaking when driving at or above highway speeds the day after a snowstorm. What could cause this?A: The issue is the ice and snow build up in the wheels and cause the tires to become unbalanced. This can be a minor steering wheel shake to feeling like the wheels are going to fall off the car. Once the snow melts off the wheels from the heat of the day the car should behave normally again. Some slightly obsessive drivers will go so far to take their snow brush and clean in between the spokes of the wheels to knock the snow and ice off.

If he does eventually announce his retirement, the mystery surrounding Peyton Manning’s future will still have legs. The story won’t end until he tells the free world exactly what his next line of work will be. Until that happens, the anxiety levels of the top NFL TV analysts will continue to fluctuate. They can publicly say everything is cool but waiting ain’t easy. It can make you anxious, irritable. It’s reasonable to suggest if Manning decides to go into TV he’s not entering as some schlub, an interchangeable part of a pregame show ensemble. The only way a network suit gets a bang for the bucks Manning will command is to make him a featured game analyst on a No. 1 team. Manning would likely become a third man in the booth, unless some executive wants to totally stir the pot and demote the current No. 1 analyst in favor of Manning. KING: PEYTON'S SQUEAKY-CLEAN IMAGE WAS BUILT ON LIES Anyway, all that will eventually get sorted out once … [Read more...] about If Peyton Manning retires, top NFL analysts may be shaking in their booths over job security
Joshua Fletcher remembers the day he died. One minute, he was sitting in his step-father's pickup truck, parked in the driveway of his mother's South Bend home. It was his 22nd birthday. His friends and family were waiting inside to celebrate. Suddenly, Fletcher was unconscious, and if not for his mother frantically pumping his chest and trying to restart his heart, he would have never woken up. His family called 911, worried it was too late. Emergency crews pronounced Fletcher dead on arrival. The next thing he knew, he was waking up in the back of an ambulance on his way to the hospital. Fletcher didn't just lose consciousness in that pickup. He collapsed, seconds after injecting a near-lethal dose of heroin into his arm. "I just wanted to feel good on my birthday," the now 27-year-old Indianapolis resident says. "It killed me." A new kind of addictIndianapolis authorities and drug experts say heroin use has swelled over the past two years, leading to a troubling number … [Read more...] about Indy’s heroin epidemic: It’s cheap, easy to get, deadly
A seizure-prone truck driver who ran over a pair of British tourists in midtown kept his hands locked on the steering wheel when he started convulsing, preventing his helper from diverting the rig, the assistant testified Tuesday. George Bonilla, in dramatic testimony at Manhattan Criminal Court, described the frantic moments before Auvryn Scarlett's recycling truck jumped a W. 35th St. sidewalk and left a trail of carnage. "I turned my head to see why he was pulling over, and I saw him going into shock," said Bonilla, 26, who was riding inside the cab during the February 2008 accident. "He was shaking. His eyes were going to the back of his head. "I tried to grab the steering wheel to avoid it from getting on the sidewalk," he added. "I couldn't. His arms were locked." Bonilla said he then caught the slightest glimpse of Jacklyn Timmons and Andrew Hardie going down. "I saw two heads and then they were gone," Bonilla said. Timmons and Hardie, both 47, were killed.

East Elmhurst: We constantly hear that the MTA wastes money. Then we hear it has to cut service. How about, before cutting service, making sure that people who ride the buses and subways pay their fares? I've witnessed child after child scooting under turnstiles, and no one says anything. Then, there are the people whose MetroCards are suddenly empty. Rarely have I heard a driver ask them to leave the bus. Irene GoldsmithStaten Island: Once again, the MTA has announced a budget deficit. Hold on to your wallets, drivers. You'll probably be asked to subsidize the MTA again - and pay for a service you don't use. What a sham. Robert K. Greco Brooklyn: The MTA's plan to stop distributing free MetroCards to students is utterly ridiculous. Students need those cards to get to school and receive an education. This is just sad.

SafetyBright.com, it's described as "a great premium product that can be logo imprinted." Its functions include a flashlight, a rapidly blinking beacon so people can find you in the event you're stranded, a seat-belt cutter designed to quickly slice through a safety belt should yours malfunction, and a "glass-break hammer," actually a pointy metal bit on one end of the unit to smash your way out of your car if need be. It's also magnetized at one end, so your beacon can be affixed to your roof or side of your car.The unit looked reasonably sturdy, and was compact enough to fit in a glove compartment or side panel of a driver door. But rather than carry my test Safety Stick with me and wait for the day I was stuck in a smashed or submerged car, I paid a visit to Apache Auto Workers, a scrapyard in Ridgewood, NJ. There, manager Louie Ramirez was kind enough to escort me deep into the hundreds of car and truck carcasses waiting to be crushed in order to find a suitable guinea pig for a … [Read more...] about Safety gizmo fails inspection
Suspected of setting up his best friend for a mob hit, a retired NYPD sergeant armed with a gun and a Bible went berserk Tuesday before cops killed him in front of his wife and kids. The death of Jason Aiello in a blizzard of two dozen bullets capped a dramatic chain of events that began with a "crazed" visit to FBI headquarters and ended with his escape from a Staten Island psych ward. The 36-year-old father of three apparently suffered an epic mental meltdown in which he spouted Scripture, tried to abduct his pajama-clad kids and then fired on police, authorities said. He fired eight shots; cops fired 19. "He wanted to fight it out, and if not, go down in a blaze of glory," a police source said as Aiello's family accused authorities of hounding him into a nervous breakdown and using "excessive" force to subdue him. Aiello, a 12-year veteran who retired with a knee injury in 2006, had been under scrutiny since his jeweler pal Louis Antonelli was gunned down in a restaurant … [Read more...] about Unhinged ex-sergeant holding bible and gun is slain by cops in front of family
INDIANAPOLIS - As the minutes ticked away yesterday, the final day of qualifications for next week's Indianapolis 500, Roberto Moreno and his team took stock of their situation. With less than an hour to go until the 33-car field was set for next Sunday's race, the 48-year-old Brazilian, hoping to drive in his third 500 in 21 years, was "on the bubble," the slowest qualifier in the lineup at 216.229 mph.Moreno said he was sure that wasn't going to be fast enough.As he got more comfortable in his car yesterday, Moreno's practice speeds climbed and he knew it was time to get aggressive instead of waiting for a faster car to bump him."I saw that I achieved 220 (mph) and was solid in the car and said, 'OK, guys, that's enough. Let's go for it.'"Moreno - who got his ride in the No.77 Chastain Motorsports car on Friday, the day after Stephan Gregoire crashed, fracturing a vertebra - was up to the challenge. His first lap was over 219.8 and the next three were all over 220, giving him an … [Read more...] about Vet Moreno in Indy field

Scores of others were injured as up to 50 cars slammed into the water. More than 60 people were rushed to Minneapolis-area hospitals, some in critical condition. Witnesses said traffic was bumper-to-bumper when the 1,907-foot span cracked, buckled and plummeted 64 feet, splashing into the river. Banker Peter Siddon said he thought he was a goner when his car jumped a crevice between two severed slabs of the highway. "I saw this rolling of the bridge. It kept collapsing, down, down, down until it got to me," Siddon said. "I thought I was dead. I thought it was over." The collapse … [Read more...] about Death bridge!
