    A woman killed when a pensioner deliberately set himself on fire aboard a moving bullet train in Japan was on her way to a shrine to give thanks for her "peaceful life", it emerged on Wednesday. Yoshiko Kuwahara died after 71-year-old Haruo Hayashizaki doused himself in fuel and sparked the blaze on the busy 300km-per-hour train. "Today I'm visiting Ise shrine to give thanks for my calm, peaceful life," 52-year-old Kuwahara wrote on her Facebook page on Tuesday morning as she boarded the super-fast Nozomi bullet train at Yokohama.

    In Justice Scaliaís dissenting opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges he said, ďIt is of no special importance to me what the law says about marriage.

    NEW YORK ó One of the inmates ended up dead and the second was shot and captured by an alert state trooper, but it looks like heads are rolling at the Clinton Correctional Facility, now that the 23-day hunt for two escaped prisoners has ended. The New York State Department of Corrections is replacing 12 prison employees, including the prisonís superintendent Steven Racette and deputy superintendent Stephen Brown. Racette was seen in a photo (embedded below) with Gov. Andrew Cuomo on June 6, when the daring prison break was discovered. The DOC sent a statement to PIX11 Investigates Tuesday announcing...

No, this entire orchestrated cultural purge isnít about addressing justice or protecting our fragile future from enduring embers of animosity. Otherwise, everyone would simply be held to the same standard of accountability and the results would speak for themselves: end of syndicated story.

    NASHVILLE -- Nearly half of Tennessee's House Republican Caucus met "in a state of shock" Tuesday to discuss whether to hold a special legislative session in response to last week's U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage. They discussed topics such as what, if anything, state lawmakers can or should do in areas like protecting clergy who refuse to perform same-sex ceremonies because it would violate their religious beliefs. At least 33 of the most conservative members of the 73-member GOP Caucus packed into a conference room in Republican House Speaker Beth Harwell's office for more than an hour. They...

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) ó A man who reported someone beat him and carved a homophobic slur into his arm staged the attacks, authorities in rural Utah said Tuesday. Millard County Sheriff Robert Dekker said Rick Jones, 21, could face charges after officers investigating the series of reported attacks found inconsistencies in the evidence. The Delta man eventually acknowledged faking the harassment, Dekker said. Brett Tolman, an attorney for Jones, said the reports were a cry for help initially directed toward people close to him, and Jones didn't realize how much attention they would get.

    Hillary Clinton may not be any improvement over Barack Hussein Obama. Let raise an idea about how you could present the arrangement on settlements that you are seeking with Israel as I understand it, i.e. a moratorium coupled with allowances to complete a number of housing units. There are two ways: 1. To describe it as an agreement, explaining why the US has accepted an Israeli completion of a handful of units whose construction already has begun. This raises some concerns. It would represent U.S. legitimization of some (however small) Israeli activity in the West Bank and it would...

    A senior Israeli defense official said President Bashar al-Assad controlled just a fifth of Syria and may end up in charge of a rump state dominated by his minority Alawite sect. Israel and its neighbor Syria are long-term enemies, but the remarks by Amos Gilad, strategic adviser to Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, reflect concerns by states across the region that Syria is undergoing a de facto partition after four years of civil war. "Syria is gone. Syria is dying. The funeral will be declared in due time. This Bashar Assad, he will be remembered in history textbooks as the...

    An overwhelming 96 percent IT professionals said theyíre interested in Windows 10, with 60 percent stating that their IT department has already evaluated a preview version, according to a survey conducted by Spiceworks. The survey of over 500 IT professionals said that nearly all respondents expressed at least some interest in Windows 10 Ė (96 percent), to be exact. "But based on their patterns of adoption for OSes in general, itís fair to say that being interested doesnít necessarily mean theyíre booking flights, at least not right away. When we asked IT pros why they typically start using a new...
  • Warning: Windows 10 will share your Wi-Fi key with your friends' friends (and FB friends, and...)

    A Windows 10 feature, Wi-Fi Sense, smells like a security risk: it shares access to password-protected Wi-Fi networks with the user's contacts. So giving a wireless password to one person grants access to everyone who knows them. That includes their Outlook.com (nee Hotmail) contacts, Skype contacts and, with an opt-in, their Facebook friends. There is method in the Microsoft madness Ė it saves having to shout across the office or house ďwhatís the Wi-Fi password?Ē Ė but ease of use has to be tamed with security. If you wander close to a wireless network, and your friend knows the password,...

Banderas said, ďIím a married woman. I haveÖ a ring on my finger. I never asked anyone to vote on whether or not I had the right to do this.Ē

    Question: "What was Nehushtan?" Answer: The word Nehushtan occurs one time in the Bible, in 2 Kings 18:4, ďHe [Hezekiah] removed the high places and broke the pillars and cut down the Asherah. And he broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made, for until those days the people of Israel had made offerings to it (it was called Nehushtan).Ē Second Kings 18:4 points back to Numbers 21:6Ė9, ďThen the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. And the people came to Moses and said, ĎWe...

    Faded, former-media darling Katie Couric hosted Republican Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for a full-hour to discuss a wide range of issues Monday. The left-wing anchor, who is now perched at a place called Yahoo!, introduced Cruz as a historic candidate ó potentially the first American president to be born in Canada. Later in the interview, she questioned Cruz on his citizenship. The look on Couricís smug face when he correctly reminded her that it was the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2008 that birthed the anti-Obama Birther movement, is priceless. It all starts at right around the 25 minute mark....

    The solution to poverty begins in the neighborhoods and the people affected by it, says Robert Woodson, the founder and president of the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise. "You always have to begin with a solution in mind," Woodson told CSPAN Tuesday morning in a discussion on poverty. "I tell people, what is your solution? If all whites tomorrow were to move to Canada and Europe, tell me how it would affect the black on black crime rate, how would it it affect the out-of-wedlock births, how would it affect the spread of AIDS? How would it affect those issues?" he...

    Investigators: Only 2 of the fires might be arson (CNN) óWhen six black churches in the Southeast burned in the days following the Charleston church killings, authorities and church members were immediately suspicious. But none of those fires show evidence of being a hate crime and only two might be arson, investigators told CNN."We are looking at all of them along with ATF," a federal law enforcement official told CNN. "No reason at this point to link them, but we are continuing to investigate.""There's no apparent connection, nothing to say they are connected," said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at...
