    Despite port owners and union officials reaching a deal last month, businesses are still suffering from the aftereffects of a nine month long labor dispute that devastated the west coast. The dispute began in May when the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) were unable to agree on a new labor contract. The inability to come to a deal and the resulting port congestion prompted economic problems in many industries. It wasn’t until pressure from the president and a visit from Labor Secretary Tom Perez on Feb. 20 that the two sides were able...

    The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence Facebooked a news story on suspected road rage killer Christopher Lee McCullum with the caption “Don’t worry, folks. He’s a ‘Good Guy with a Gun.'” Huh? Any man who murders an innocent victim isn’t a “good guy.” Ipso facto. The antis are spreading this mendacious meme throughout social media and onto op ed pages. Here’s how Jennifer Thorne, Executive Director of Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence, deploys the same sarcastic barb in a column focusing on last year’s pro-gun legislative package H.B. 234:

    America, where is the outrage over the Ferguson “hands up don't shoot” lie being furthered in the minds of millions of black and white youths at the 2015 Grammys? Micheal Brown did not have his hands up in surrender. Brown was a thug who attacked officer Darren Wilson. And yet, prominent influential black celebs (Pharrell, Beyonce and Prince to name a few) continue to irresponsibly promote the lie that white cops murder young black men. Has everyone forgotten that police officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were assassinated because of this lie?

    An otherwise peaceful and playful day this past summer at a southern Illinois homeowners association pool turned ugly when a resident with a history of behavioral problems became offended at a perceived slight. In retaliation, she threatened to drown someone's child. "It was crazy. It was very frightening," says Michelle St. Cin, AMS, PCAM, regional manager for Community Property Management in Alton, Ill. The situation was defused, but it left board members wondering: What if an over-protective parent were to pull a gun from a purse or backpack and start firing?

Further, many stars never even studied at a university, having left for Hollywood as soon as they could.

We cannot imagine a worse signal to send to Iran as it continues its push for a nuclear weapon. “Without a U.N.

    Swedish Muslims north of the Arctic circle have long waited for and feared this summer. When the sun never sets, they have pondered how to observe Ramadan, when devout Muslims fast from sun up to sun down for a month. "Kiruna is as high up as you get in Sweden, the sun never sets during this month," Ali Melhem, 45, who has lived in Kiruna for 24 years told The Local. As the fasting month is set by the moon, Ramadan usually moves about 10 days forward in the calender each year, which means this is the first summer it...

Though it is the holy book of Islam, U.S. troops at Bagram prison found inmates were scribbling coded messages to one another in the books margins and destroyed them. Afghan outrage was immense and sparked protests throughout the country; calling into question U.S. policy and troop...

Mr Savelyev is a member of the Russian parliamentary commission investigating the siege, in which 331 people died. Many of the victims were children, taken hostage by pro-Chechen militants.

The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...
