    Explanation: How could a galaxy become shaped like a ring? The rim of the blue galaxy pictured on the right is an immense ring-like structure 150,000 light years in diameter composed of newly formed, extremely bright, massive stars. That galaxy, AM 0644-741, is known as a ring galaxy and was caused by an immense galaxy collision. When galaxies collide, they pass through each other -- their individual stars rarely come into contact. The ring-like shape is the result of the gravitational disruption caused by an entire small intruder galaxy passing through a large one. When this happens, interstellar gas and...

Viktor Muzhenko, in an interview published by Ukraine's Defense Ministry on April 18, said, "Regular Russian army troops are still in Ukraine" despite a cease-fire agreement signed in February which ordered the withdrawal of foreign fighters from the front line. Russia has repeatedly denied claims by Kyiv and the West that it is arming and sending troops to help separatists who have gained control of parts of the east. Muzhenko...

    There are not many people who once fought on the same side as Fidel Castro and are now heroes to American social conservatives. But that is exactly the trajectory taken by Rafael Cruz, father of 2016 presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). The elder Cruz now regrets his fight on the side of the pro-Castro rebels in his native Cuba, ascribing it to dislike of Castro’s arch-enemy, U.S.-backed President Fulgencio Batista, rather than any sympathy for Communism. Rafael has travelled a complicated path in the United States, encompassing two divorces, business reversals and a second career as a preacher. But...

    While the 2016 U.S. presidential election is still many months away, the race is already heating up, as a number of high-profile candidates have thrown their hat into the ring.  Here's a look at who has declared so far. Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton A former senator, secretary of state and first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton is the undisputed frontrunner for the presidential nomination and the only Democrat to have announced their candidacy thus far. The problem for Clinton is that she was also the frontrunner in 2007, before a junior senator from Illinois overtook her during the primary and later became...

Eight and a half months into our marriage, while we were still getting comfortable in our roles as husband and wife, we suddenly became mom and dad. I won’t say that our son was poorly planned—we were both anxious to start our family—but I will say that in hindsight becoming a mother in the same year that you become a wife is not for the weak. The first year of our son’s...

The Texas Republican, who announced his presidential campaign last month, began his remarks by praising his rivals for the Republican nomination as “an incredible array of conservative leaders.” Later, he shared the story of his father who fled tyranny in Cuba for the “promise” of America. “That is the miracle of America,” said Cruz. “That no nation in the history of the world has allowed so many millions of people to come with nothing and achieve...

    On a number of occasions during the negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program, the Israeli government has appealed to the United States and its allies to demand a change in Tehran’s aggressive behavior. If Iran wishes to be treated as a normal state, Israel has said, then it should start acting like one. Unfortunately, these appeals have been summarily dismissed. The Obama administration apparently believes that only after a nuclear agreement is signed can the free world expect Iran to stop its attempts at regional domination, improve its human rights record and, in general, behave like the civilized state it hopes...

    California’s chief law officer, Attorney General Kamala Harris, declared this week, “an undocumented immigrant is not a criminal,” a statement in direct contradiction to federal law. Illegally entering and remaining in the country is a federal crime. By stating that those who illegally enter or remain in the United States are not in violation of law is simply incorrect. However, many of these “undocumented immigrants” are not being prosecuted under the current administration. Last November, President Obama declared effective amnesty for an estimated five million illegally present aliens. Since then, Representative Luis Gutierrez has traveled the country, partnering with fellow...

If he were running in Honduras, I would vote for him in a minute..." Marco Rubio "...Rubio co-authored a bill that would have given amnesty to illegal aliens. He has since tried to walk back from that..." Chris Christie "...Chris has been cagey on the subject, but one thing is clear:...

    It's a sad day in America when due process rights granted in the Constitution need protection, but here we are. On college campuses across the country, students — particularly male students — are learning the hard way that they have little if any due process rights should they ever be accused of sexual assault. Indeed, an accusation is all that's needed to destroy or severely alter their future. The reason for this comes from the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights, which has reinterpreted Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 to view sexual assault as a form...

You know, a lot of people have a lot of different opinions about the Bible and what it is saying. They pull this verse or that verse out of context and twist it like a wax nose to make it suit their purpose. People approach the Bible with their presuppositions and then find in the Bible what they...

Backed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the plan would supply victims with free college tuition, counseling for drug abuse and psychological issues, and include a formal apology from the city, according to the Chicago Tribune. While the plan appears to be an attempt to reckon with part of the city's less-than-spotless past, Thursday evening Fox Business Network's Charles Payne said he's afraid nationwide slavery reparations might be next.

    Republicans are the usual targets for caricature on popular US comedy show Saturday Night Live (remember Tina Fey as Sarah Palin?). But comedienne Kate McKinnon's impersonation of Hillary Clinton last week gave Fey a run for her money. On the eve of Clinton's announcement, one biting SNL skit imagined what Mrs Clinton's announcement video might sound like. "Citizens, you will elect me," McKinnon barked. "I will be your leader!" The satirical message was simple: Hillary Clinton believes she is entitled to the presidency.

Scott Walker closed the NHGOP’s First-in-the-Nation Republican Leadership Summit on Saturday night with a call for “common sense” leadership to promote “big and bold” ideas. Walker, who has been leading the GOP presidential field in recent New Hampshire polling, told several hundred Republicans who remained for the separately ticketed Saturday night dinner that if he runs for president, he would apply the same principles and approach that he said has turned around his state’s economy. Introduced by former Gov. John H. Sununu, Walker said he decided to run for governor because he and his wife wanted...

    As GOP presidential hopefuls scramble to promote their political platforms and distinguish themselves from other candidates, plenty of conservatives were alarmed to see a story on Breitbart.com about Marco Rubio’s support for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program on the basis that “there are already people benefiting from it.”

    The 11.4 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. provide billions of dollars for local, state and federal taxes, based on a new study. And according to a nonprofit organization, tax contributions by undocumented immigrants would increase if immigration reform policies were approved. The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization about tax policy issues, found that if all 11.4 million undocumented immigrants received lawful permanent residency in the U.S., then state and local tax contributions would increase by approximately $2.2 billion per year. Based on 2012 data, ITEP stated undocumented immigrants have already contributed...

    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina warned the New Hampshire Republican Leadership Summit that “Hillary Clinton must not be president,” because she lacks the essential qualities of leadership such as a record of accomplishment, candor and transparency. “She will pursue a set of policies that will crush possibilities and the potential of this great nation,” Fiorina said.

    Having as few as five sips of water an hour while driving is equivalent to being over the drink drive limit. Drivers make more than twice as many mistakes when they are just mildly dehydrated, according to new research. The study revealed that drivers who had only had 25ml of water an hour made more than double the number of mistakes on the road than those who were hydrated - the same amount as those who have been drink driving.

    This is what he (Tony Campolo) has to say about Hillary Clinton and why Christians should vote for her: “Some of my Evangelical friends raise questions about her views on abortion. But Hillary Clinton is one of the few candidates on the political stage who has a plan for cutting the abortion rate in America by at least 50 percent. I know Hillary Clinton to be a committed Christian. As a teenager, Hillary’s religious beliefs were heavily impacted by hearing a sermon by Martin Luther King, Jr. The youth pastor of her Methodist church mentored her through her teenage years...

    We’re still a year away from the first official votes being cast in the 2016 Republican presidential primary in my home state of Iowa. Yet some of my brethren seem willing to declare the contest over and award Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker the victory before he’s truly been vetted. How about we make a guy go through the job interview before we hire him based solely off his resume? Now, to be sure Walker has an attractive resume, which is why I have several kind things to say about him in my book Rules for Patriots: How Conservatives Can Win...

    This week, Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire introduced the Women on the Twenty Act, legislation aimed at putting an American woman on the $20 bill. Shaheen's efforts nod to an initiative by Women on 20s, a group that is lobbying to change the $20 by 2020. That year Americans will mark the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, which granted women the right to vote. (The $20 is also overdue for a redesign to thwart counterfeiters.) For Andrew Jackson, current face of the $20 bill, this is the latest assault on the paper perch he has...
