  • 20 kids and counting! Michelle Duggar announces pregnancy

    Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar had an announcement to make on The Today Show this morning, which is that Michelle was pregnant with their 20th baby. I found myself getting prickly on their behalf watching the response and somewhat annoying questions by Ann Curry… What a witness this couple and family are. I just love them. See what I mean by this clip posted at People. And this clip just up on the TLC website… “We are so excited,” says Michelle, 45, who is now about 3-1/2 months into her pregnancy and due in April. “I feel good. I am...

The name of the infant was recently found on the payment voucher of a local government council in northern Nigeria during an exercise to fish out ghost employees from a bloated workforce, Garba Gajam, justice commissioner for Zamfara State told AFP late Wednesday. "We discovered that a one-month-old baby was among the employees of one local government who is paid a salary," Gajam said. "What is even more astonishing is that it was indicated...

Herman Cain hits it out of the park on Big Abortion's history and founder. Bob Scheiffer plays gotcha with Cain and gets schooled... He asks Cain if he has “proof” that abortion clinics were placed in black neighborhoods to “curb the negro population”. Did this “seasoned journalist” really ask that? Mr. Schieffer, Google is your friend. The racist roots of Planned Parenthood have been out there for years, but only now is it coming to light for most Americans, as the media...

Officers learned the suspects had given the child away to friends in their neighborhood, who said they agreed to take custody of her if the couple agreed to get help...

    The California man who lives part of his life as an “adult baby” and collects Social Security disability payments says the federal agency has cleared him of wrongdoing and will continue sending checks. Stanley Thornton Jr. now wants an apology from Sen. Tom Coburn, the Oklahoma Republican who called for the benefit review because the investigation disrupted the final months of life for his roommate Sandra Dias, who playacted as his mother, spoon-feeding him and helping him into his baby clothes until her death in July. “We recently reviewed the evidence in your Social Security disability claim and find that...

    Carla Bruni keeps publicly asserting how discreet she wants to be about her baby, due any day now. But will she and her husband really be able to resist using their child in what is already an incredible political soap opera? Carla Bruni, French first lady, multimillionaire supermodel-turned-folk- singer, has found her pregnancy at 43 pretty boring. "Quite frankly, I can't stand it any more. I spend most of my time either sitting down or lying down. I can't drink or smoke any more. I'm in a hurry to get it over with." She thinks the public is pretty bored...

Larry Webster, 36, has been charged with murder in connection with Ah'Haod Crawford's death. Webster had been charged with criminal attempted murder before the boy’s death. "We certainly felt based on the information we had last night there was enough evidence to proceed with the charge of attempted murder and really the only thing that has changed is the nature of the charge and that's due to the victim passing away," Detective Josh Meyers said. Shively police were called to the...

On the other hand, many have noted the lack of transparency of their method, making reliance on them a matter of trust rather than testing. An alternative to their approach is based on the research of UCLA Anderson School Prof. Edward Leamer. Prof. Leamer made an excellent presentation (pdf) about the progression of business cycles at Jackson Hole in 2007. It is research I have relied on many...

    Home prices are unlikely to recover before 2020 and mortgage defaults will persist for years, says a survey of bank risk managers out Friday. The survey conducted by the Professional Risk Managers’ International Association for FICO, found that 49 percent of respondents do not expect housing prices to rise back to 2007 levels for another nine years. Only 21 percent of respondents said they would. The findings, which authors called “a decidedly pessimistic outlook”, are a sharp reversal from cautious optimism the survey respondents expressed late last year and in early 2011. In addition, 73 percent of surveyed bankers say...

It seems that Ana Mejia and Rodolfo Santana, the parents of a young disabled boy named Bryan Santana, have received a $4.5-million court victory over a doctor and ultrasound technician they accused of malpractice. What makes this story uniquely disturbing is the alleged offense of the two medical professionals. According to the Palm Beach Post, "[the parents] claimed they would have...
