The plane crashed near Digne les Bains, in the Alpes de Haute Provence region, Valls said."The conditions of the accident are not yet clear but lead us to believe there will be no survivors," Hollande said. The crash happened...

    FERGUSON, Mo. -- Two officers were shot in front of the Ferguson Police Department early Thursday, authorities said, as demonstrators gathered after the city's police chief resigned in the wake of a scathing Justice Department report alleging bias in the police department and court.

  • Activists: IS militants kidnap dozens of Christians in Syria

    BEIRUT (AP) Islamic State militants have abducted at least 70 Christians, including women and children, after overrunning a string of villages in northeastern Syria, activists and relatives said Tuesday. The Sunni extremists, who follow a radical interpretation of Islam, have repeatedly targeted religious and ethnic minorities in Syria and Iraq since seizing control of large swaths of both countries. The group's fighters have ransacked churches, demolished Shiite and Sunni Muslim shrines, and enslaved women of the Yazidi community, a tiny sect IS considers heretical. The latest assault began before dawn on Monday, when the militants swept through the villages...

    Islamic State militants have released a statement claiming that a female American aid worker has been killed during a Jordanian air strike, it has been reported. The 26-year-old woman is understood to be the last US hostage held by the terror group, which had been demanding $6.6 million for her release. Her death is not yet been verified by independent sources and it is unclear when she might have been killed by missiles from a Jordanian war plane or whether she was executed by militants, the Site Intelligence Group reported.

    Have you ever heard of the Rule of Threes? Its a guideline used widely in writing and communicating that dictates that your message is clearer and more effective when you can convey it in three parts. For example, in the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote that every American had an inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Drop any one of those, and the sentence is somehow less effective. You know who else was a big fan of the Rule of Threes? Steve Jobs. Over at Forbes, Carmine Gallo writes: Steve Jobs applied the Rule of...

    Mark Ritchie File 2 hereYou can tell a lot about a politician's true allegiances by identifying who funds him. Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie poses as a moderate, but is in fact an hard core leftist, with ties to several socialist organizations. This becomes important, because part of Ritchie's job is to oversee electoral recounts. In 2009 Ritchie gave a crucial Senate seat to leftist and former comedian Al Franken, though his Republican opponent was ahead on election night. Soon Ritchie will oversee a recount that could put his long time colleague and fellow leftist Mark Dayton into the...

They may, but that is not the reason for the ubiquitous 3. "We really like Dale Earnhardt, and we know he is part of 'Heaven's Racing Team,'" said deacon Frank Drake. This type of obsession is probably harmless in most places, but not in Daytona, a hotbed of NASCAR. However,...

    Treasury, Citing Progress Against Budget Deficit, Says It Is Dropping the 3-Year Note WASHINGTON (AP) -- With budget deficits improving, the government said Wednesday it is discontinuing sales of three-year Treasury notes. The Treasury Department said the last auction of three-year notes will occur next week as part of the regular series of quarterly debt auctions used to help finance the $8.8 trillion federal government debt. The government's borrowing needs peaked in the 2004 budget year, when the federal deficit hit an all-time high in dollar terms of $413 billion. Since that time, the deficit has declined for three straight...

    LOS ANGELES - Ronald Isley has been sentenced to three years and one month in prison for tax evasion. The 65-year-old R&B singer was also ordered to pay $3.1 million in back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Conte. Isley was convicted last year of five counts of tax evasion and one count of willful failure to file a tax return. During Friday's hearing, defense attorney Anthony Alexander argued that Isley should receive probation instead of prison time because of complications from a stroke and a recent bout with kidney cancer. Alexander also pleaded for...

    The day before terrorists attacked New York and Washington, a fifth-grader in a Dallas suburb told his teacher World War III would begin the next day, school officials have told the FBI. The boy was absent from school the day of the attacks, Sept. 11, and the following day, but has been at school since then, said Rhonda Lucich, a director of elementary education for the Garland Independent School District. Lucich said the boy approached his teacher on the afternoon of Sept. 10 and casually told her: "Tomorrow, World War III will begin. It will begin in the United States,...

[M]any Americans, he wrote, are worriedthat terrorism is transforming us and our society, when it was supposed to be about uprooting the terrorists and transforming their societies. (By many Americans Friedman means me and Al Gore.) Yes, terrorism is transforming our society. Whereas four years...

    After talking with some left-wing friends this weekend, I realized now more than ever that the question of whether to vote for Bush or Kerry truly boils down to another question, A war for our lives, or a nuisance to our lifestyle? The later question was asked on Friday by eminent historian Victor David Hanson. He answers it with honesty and erudition, but leaves out a very important point: the fear factor. Hanson correctly identifies Kerry et als penchant for wanting to solve our foreign policy disputes through diplomatic bureaucracy ad nauseum -- e.g., the United Nations. He hints at...
