Unable to let the slightest perceived insult escape his attention, Trump, the other day, resumed his "war" with Megyn Kelly by deciding to opt out of tonight's FOX NEWS debate. OK, while many think it's a very dumb move, and could hurt his campaign, some feel it's a brilliant stroke. We shall see.

This was the condition given to 16 young women who received the Maidens Bursary Award from the UThukela District Municipality for remaining pure. In addition, they had to undergo virginity testing every holiday to ensure they were not sexually active. The municipality introduced the new category of bursaries during its Mayoral Matric Excellence Awards on January 11. Municipality spokesperson Jabulani Mkhonza said more than 100 matrics, including those who were not virgins, who excelled in their 2015 matric year, received awards.

    Last July, Anthony Hervey, an outspoken black advocate for the Confederate flag, was killed in a car crash. Arlene Barnum, a surviving passenger in the vehicle, told authorities and the media that they had been forced off the road by a carload of "angry young black men" after Hervey, while wearing his Confederate kepi, stopped at a convenience store en route to his home in Oxford, Mississippi. His death was in no small part caused by the gross level of ignorance, organized deceit and anger about the War of 1861. Much of the ignorance stems from the fact that most...

But the Facebook jest by Michael McFeat -- a welding superintendent at the Kumtor Gold Company in Kyrgyzstan -- could scarcely have come at a worse time for his Canadian bosses, whose relations with Bishkek are at an all-time low. The mine's owners have recently been locked in a fierce battle with the Kyrgyz government over fresh mining permits and a redivision of profits from an enterprise that generates around 10 percent...

After being arrested, the quickest excuse he could think of was that he was not aware that selling these films was illegal or ‘haram’ (against Islam). Many Internet users reacted to this report which went viral on social media. Many said that the arrested man was lying and that he was offering a silly reason to try to escape punishment.

    The Unholy Alliance between ISIS and Donald Trump (translated from an Arabic editorial) There is an unholy alliance between Donald Trump and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi; its victims are normal Muslims. This alliance might seem strange because it is between two opposites. The American billionaire turns to western American values and the other fancies himself a caliph of the second century of the Muslim calendar. In reality, each one seems the echo of the other more than being opposites of each other. Donald Trump represents a significant portion of Republican voters and other partisans, as the trustworthy candidate, who expresses himself...

    The Cruz presidential campaign is now claiming that the senator's attempted amendments and statements were only designed to be so-called "poison pills," a legislative trick designed to get supporters of a bill to vote against it. That was also the line Cruz took in an interview yesterday with Fox News anchor Bret Baier. But that does not square with the fact that weeks after the legislation failed in the House, Cruz was still talking up how he wanted to grant permanent resident status to illegal immigrants in an interview with the Texas Tribune in September: Immigration-reform legislation from the Senate's...

What happened so swiftly elsewhere is not so simple in Mississippi. The Confederate battle flag is not simply flying in one hotly disputed spot at the State Capitol but occupying the upper left corner of the state flag, which has been flying since 1894.

They whooped and hollered through 90 minutes of Trump speech-making. In scattered and rather loose references to issues, Trump skillfully intermixed attributes of puerile boasting about his skills, mocking his opponents and their cluelessness, and lionizing his oft-demonstrated business skills. The biggest winner was his condemnation of American immigration policy while characterizing all illegals as leaving a large swatch of murder, rape, and pillage in their...

    John Kasich has NO business running for President as a Republican! He is one of the biggest R.I.N.O.s around. He's a phony & a liar when he goes on national TV and states he did not have to raise any taxes to balance the Ohio state budget. Well I know for a fact he did raise the Cigarette tax quite high a few months ago to balance "his" Ohio state budget.{But he keeps it a secret}. He states he is a compassionate Republican.....{attending same sex weddings}, yada yada yada.

    Donald trump in a CNN interview had the temerity to smack down the talking vagina that is Megyn Kelly after she -- basically -- accused him of being a misogynist: a person who dislikes, despises, or is strongly prejudiced against women. This is how Megyn Kelly began her non-question, question: "Youve called women you dont like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals. Only Rosie ODonnell, Retorted Trump. No, it wasnt, Argued Megyn -- without anything to backup her assertion -- Does that sound like the temperament of a man we should elect as president? So let me get this...

    To most government officials, feminine hygiene products are a luxury item. But, every day, women are being poisoned by their own bodies because they lack access to even the most essential health products. Meanwhile, most men have no problem getting covered for pills that will help them get a boner. Although still greatly outnumbered and underpaid compared to their male counterparts, women have made so much progress. Yet inequality still lies in the most basic areas of human well-being. Women are still facing unequal treatment when it comes to health care and are paying out of pocket for necessary female...

    First, in the spirit of full disclosure I was apprehensive to discuss the news surrounding Donald Trump because I find little value in adding to the growing number of articles ripping him apart. I dont think it benefits our community by taking the same exact stance, for the same exact reasons, as the rest of the world. As if there is another side to take. Plus, I dont think any of us needed Donald to clarify his stance on immigration or tell us his definition of war hero for everyone to know he is certifiably insane So, why are you...

    America is an angry country. It always has been. Those who came before us cleared out the locals by any means necessary, then sanitized the genocidal slaughter as they self-immortalized their deeds into the stuff of legend. After the sun dried the corpses, we set upon each other. Our history is splattered in blood and steeped in unrestrained hostility toward all living creatures. People in countries all over the world trip out on America. Not only do we make films the rest of the planet flocks to see we are living in them as well. America is so larger-than-life,...

    This woman in a burqa was not heading to any prayer services. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and her kid sister hid under traditional Muslim wear during the holy month of Ramadan so they could get secret plastic surgery in Paris, The Post has learned. The Brazilian stunner orchestrated the cloak-and-dagger mission so she could sneak into the swank International Clinique du Parc Monceau for work on her boobs and eyes, sources said.

    A retirement party at the city courthouse for superior court judge Richard Kramer featured handcuffs, a whip, and a stripper wearing a Confederate battle flag on her clothes. What happened? The party planner was from South Carolina and hasn't been watching the news since 1958. The stripper was an actual cop. The heart wants what the heart wants. It was a retirement gift from Judge Judith Scheindlin, who sent her regrets at not being able to attend personally. This is nothing, Gavin Newsom had three Ukrainian prostitutes reading Democracy in America at his retirement party....

    When a revolutionary new product is launched, the first instinct is to understand it by relating its most obvious features to what we already know. In time, it becomes apparent that the analogies we formed, to understand the device, failed to properly inform us of the new way of doing things invited by the product._______________________Source: Apple _______________________ Nowhere is this more obvious than with the Apple Watch. To understand it as a wristwatch that has some fancy features is to miss the relationship it has with the iPhone. The proper, elegant partitioning of tasks is one key area that is...

    The Apple Watch has changed my life for the better, solving all the problems I had with the iPhone (such as missing calls while I tried to find it) as well as solving other problems I didn't even now I had until I got it. I didn't want to write this blog about the Apple Watch, because I didn't want to seem like an Apple geek. But after reading the misleading reviews by other editors that shall remained unnamed, I just felt like I had to set the story straight. For one thing, all the features that one reviewer panned...

    In 1999, Americas sweetheart Julia Roberts attended the London premiere of her film Notting Hill, and for a split second lifted up her arm to wave to her fans, inadvertently revealing a dark undergrowth of hair. Roberts fuzzy pits triggered reactions of unspeakable disgust a writer from Britains Mirror likened them to two clumps of seaweed, while The Independent ran a debate on the pros and cons of Roberts personal hygiene habits. Assessing the backlash, Roberts later said, You wouldve thought I had a chinchilla under there. It was around the same time that I was undergoing the routine...
