    It's scary enough watching Carrie wreak havoc with her telekinetic powers on a movie screen. Imagine what it would be like to see it while you were ordering a latte. For some unsuspecting patrons of a New York City coffee shop, a scary confrontation straight out of a Stephen King novel (and its two movie adaptations) happened right before their eyes.
  • Weiner Sext Pal “He Was A Needy Little Bitch,”

    NY Post ^ | 7/30/13
    Wannabe Mayor Weiner is too sex obsessed to be mayor, according to his latest virtual gal pal. In a raunchy tell-all interview with Howard Stern, Anthony Weiner’s former virtual gal pal Sydney Leathers says the peter-tweeting poll used to call her up to five times a day – and almost every day – to have phone sex. And that still wasn’t enough! “He could have 12 girls talking to him, beating off 15 times a day and that wouldn’t be enough,” Leathers said. “You would think his d–k would hurt by the end of it.” Leathers questioned if Weiner’s obsession...

    The search continues for three men wanted for questioning in the murder of Kelly Hunnewell, a bakery employee and mother of four small children. Police have received tips, but leads have reached a dead end. They're certain someone saw these three men caught on surveillance video. All were wearing hoodies and jeans in 70 degree weather around 3:30 a.m. Monday near Beltline Boulevard and Tommy Circle. It's obvious Hunnewell was more than a baker for Carolina Cafe.

    Good Strategy, Bad Tactics: Ethical Considerations in ROE for Counter-Insurgency Warfare (original title) In recent times, in many countries around the globe, military forces have had to come to grips with the difficulties of waging a counter-insurgency war; battling an elusive enemy in a task made all the more difficult by the fact that these insurgent forces commonly utilise tactics that appear (at the very least) to violate all the accepted rules of warfare. Given how common such a situation is in the world today, it seems to me that it is extremely important for military and political leaders to...

Since the end of our Space Shuttle Program in 2011, NASA has relied on the Russian Space Agency (Roscosmos) for the launch and safe return of astronauts to and from the International Space Station (ISS) aboard its Soyuz spacecraft. While our Russian counterparts have been good partners, it is unacceptable that we don't currently have an American capability to launch our own astronauts.

The former Prime Minister addresses the shocking killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich by going further than he – or any front-rank British politician – has gone before over the issue of Muslim radicalism. Writing in today’s Mail on Sunday, he departs from the usual argument that Islam is a peaceful religion that should not be tainted by the actions of a few extremists. Instead, Mr Blair urges governments to ‘be honest’ and admit that the...

At its 40 story peak - and if the riders still have their eyes open - they can see not only Arlington, but also Dallas and Fort Worth.

The announcement came as a sealed complaint was filed against suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Fox News has learned that the suspect made an initial appearance in front of a federal magistrate judge at the hospital where he is still being treated. No plea was entered. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the suspect remains in "serious condition" at the hospital.

And one website is helping people to "de-baptize" themselves. According to Reuters, the website ontdopen.nl ("de-baptize.nl") has gained significant traffic this month after the pope took the time in his Christmas speech to the Vatican bureaucracy to condemn gay marriage. "They deny their nature and decide that it is not something previously given to them, but that they make it for themselves," he said. "The manipulation of nature, which we deplore today where our environment is concerned, now becomes man's...
