On average, close to 20 percent more, according to new research from the National Bureau of Economic Research.

    Potentially lethal bombings at two sites in Hanover, Germany were defused on Tuesday night, just days after Muslim terrorists carried out lethal coordinated attacks in Paris.

Shortly after the German national soccer stadium in Hanover was evacuated on Tuesday night, reports revealed the cause: an ambulance loaded with explosives was discovered parked outside. The discovery at the HDI Arena came just before an international friendly...
