    Multiple women in relationships with Imran Awan, the indicted former IT aide for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, have recently called Virginia law enforcement and alleged being abused by him, police reports obtained under Virginia’s Freedom of Information Act show. Officers found one of the women bloodied and she told them she “just wanted to leave,” while the second said she felt like a “slave,” according to Fairfax County Police reports obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group. A third woman claimed she was being kept “in captivity.” The third woman is Awan’s stepmother, Samina Gilani, who said in...

    Denmark has signed an agreement to provide water purification technology to the thirsty coastal US state of California, in a deal that could bring millions into the Danish economy. The west coast state will spend millions of dollars over the coming years on improving water quality and reducing waste. The deal signed with the Danish Ministry for Food and the Environment will provide the opportunity for Danish business to be involved in that development, the ministry said in a press statement. Minister Esben Lunde Larsen, who signed the agreement, said the Californian market was ideal for Danish water technology. Although...

    A federal appeals court will hear a case brought by Judicial Watch on Friday to make public draft indictments of Hillary Clinton from the Whitewater scandal in the 1990s. Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group that files Freedom of Information Act requests, wants copies of the documents that the National Archives and Records Administration has declined to release. It filed a FOIA request for the documents in March 2015 and in October 2015 the group sued for the 238 pages of responsive records. According to Judicial Watch: “The National Archives argues that the documents should be kept secret, citing grand...

    Motorists on Interstate 270 could start seeing lane closures next week as construction crews begin resurfacing and restriping a highway spur that leads to the Beltway. The work marks the beginning of a $100 million project to ease traffic backups on the roadway, according to state transportation officials. “This is the first step in a major project to break daily gridlock,” Maryland Transportation Secretary Pete K. Rahn said in a prepared statement. The initial phase of the effort involves surfacing improvements on the section of I-270 that connects with the outer loop of the Beltway. The project, which is expected...

    Six women wore the exact same dress at a wedding and weren't even bridesmaids. The ladies all bought the black lace gown at Forever New - an Australian clothing line - for nearly £100 and when they all noticed the matching outfit, they took a group picture and posted it on the fashion brand's Facebook page. Debbie Speranza, one of the six fashion faux pas victims, advised them to provide a service where wedding guests can check if others have ordered the same ensemble for an event. She wrote: "You really should start a bridal registry so that your customers...

    Last Wednesday the Bavarian interior ministry released statistics that made for sobering reading. In the first half of 2017 some 685 sex crimes were recorded in Bavaria, a rise of 48 percent on the same period in 2016. Of these crimes, 126 had suspects who had arrived in Germany as asylum seekers. The figures showed that sex crimes with asylum seekers as suspects jumped by 91 percent in a year. While the large majority (71 percent) of suspects were Germans, people who had come to the country seeking asylum made up 11 percent of all suspects, a figure disproportionate to...

    Mel Brooks: Blazing Saddles would 'never' be made today By Rebecca Jones Arts correspondent, BBC News 14 minutes ago From the section Entertainment & Arts Mel Brooks, one of Hollywood's funniest film-makers, has told the BBC political correctness is "the death of comedy". He said Blazing Saddles, his Western spoof about a black sheriff in a racist town, could "never" be made today. "It's OK not to hurt the feelings of various tribes and groups," he said.

    The Many Gifts of St. Hildegard of BingenCari Donaldson Abbess. Botanist. Physician. Theologian. Playwright. Composer. Doctor of the Church. In another example of God exulting the lowly, all these titles and more have been given to St. Hildegard of Bingen, who was born the sickly youngest child of minor nobility, and eventually presented as a political offering to the Benedictines.St. Hildegard was born around 1098, in what is today Germany. She entered the monastery at Disibodenberg 1112, and by the age of 38 became Prioress. Due to the rapidly growing increase of vocations under Hildegard, one of her first moves...

    U.S. Airlines are vying for attention as the Boeing 747 leaves their fleets, just as they did when it entered their fleets in 1970. And the world’s aviation geeks are watching closely. United announced Monday that its final Boeing 747 flight will take place Nov. 7 with a celebratory recreation of its first United flight from San Francisco to Honolulu. Twenty-eight minutes later, at 3:47 p.m. Monday, Delta announced that it recently operated its final Boeing 747 Tokyo Narita-Honolulu flight (on Sept. 5), and that it had operated what were thought to be the final domestic 747 flights from Honolulu...

    The first time Donald Trump met Angela Merkel, pictures of their awkward non-handshake in the Oval Office went around the world — and the months that followed did little to break the ice. But if the 63-year-old chancellor sails her way — as widely predicted — to a fourth term in Sunday’s legislative elections, the leaders of the United States and Germany will have to figure out a way to work together in the long term. Pretty much everything about “Mutti,” as Europe’s most influential leader is known at home, sets her apart from the 71-year-old occupant of the White...

    No puppies were harmed when it came to throwing the bouquetA bride-to-be in Iowa is hoped to raise awareness of dog rescue efforts by replacing her bridal party's bouquets with puppies, meaning her wedding photos would be totally adorable. Or possibly lab-radorable. You know where we're going with this. Samantha Clark's bridesmaids held tiny Chiweenie dogs instead of flowers to highlight the work of a local pet rescue centre that has been providing extra care for animals stranded by Hurricane Harvey. So she picked pups as the symbol of her marriage vow-wow-wows.

    Reuters ^ | September 20, 2017
    South Korea approved a plan on Thursday to send $8 million worth of humanitarian aid to North Korea, the South's Yonhap News Agency reported, as part of an aid policy that the government says remains unaffected by geopolitical tensions with the North. The aid decision was made after a meeting of government officials chaired by Unification Minister Cho Myong-gyon. It comes just after the United Nations approved a raft of new sanctions against North Korea for its sixth nuclear test earlier this month. The South had said earlier it aims to send $4.5 million worth of nutritional products for children...

    Anonimi della Croce wrote on September 16 that Cardinal Raymond Burke disclosed in a private setting during the recent Congress on Summorum Pontificum in Rome, that a "correction" of the controversial Amoris Laetitia is imminent. It will not openly confront Francis but will take the form of letter or document signed by Cardinal Burke and other prelates, who in a magisterial way will correct those parts of Amoris Laetitia that contradict the Catholic Faith.
