    Olivia Sievers, a flight attendant from Germany, often travels to Argentina for work. She came across a street dog outside of the hotel she was staying at one time, and gave him a little love. He didn’t forget her, and when she arrived at the hotel during her next trip, he was there waiting for her. She knew they were meant to be together, and before long she made arrangements to bring him home with her for good. She came across the dog while walking around near her hotel in Buenos Aires. Olivia gave him some food and played with...
  • In West Hollywood, Pope Francis' Stand On Gays Is Unimpressive [Pope: Gay Marriage "Work of Devil"!]

    In West Hollywood, Pope Francis' Stand On Gays Is Unimpressive March 14, 2013 For Giancarlo Urey, a 29-year-old lawyer who spent the day in West Hollywood when Pope Francis was named to the papacy, the new leader's anti-gay stance is not a good sign. Like his predecessor in the Vatican, Francis is equally committed to conservative, traditional doctrine, people who know him say, a sensibility fostered in part by his theological studies in Germany. He was a staunch opponent of abortion and same-sex marriage, issues that an increasingly secular Argentina has embraced. He once said allowing gay couples to adopt...

    “Groups like ISIL can’t destroy us, they can’t defeat us,” President Obama told reporters in Argentina on Wednesday. “They’re not an existential threat to us,” he said. A few sentences later, he described climate change as a “major” problem. […] “And so it’s important for the U.S. president and the U.S. government to be able to work with people who are building and who are creating things and creating jobs and trying to solve major problems like climate change…” At the same news conference, Obama thanked the Argentine president for supporting the Paris climate change agreement.

    Explanation: What are those colorful arcs in the sky? Like rainbows that are caused by rain, arcs of sunlight broken up into component colors can also result when ice crystals floating in Earth's atmosphere act together as a gigantic prism. The top color arc is more typical as it is part of the 22 degree halo surrounding the Sun when hexagonal ice crystals refract sunlight between two of the six sides. More unusual, though, is the bottom color arc. Sometimes called a fire rainbow, this circumhorizon arc is also created by ice, not fire nor even rain. Here, a series...

  • Ex-NBC Bureau Chief Backs Up O’Reilly’s Account of Falklands War Riot (Sorry David Corn fans)

    Two former CBS reporters have strongly disputed Bill O’Reilly‘s accounts of what happened one night when they covered a riot in Buenos Aires, but on The Factor tonight, O’Reilly brought on a former NBC News bureau chief who backed up his story. Don Browne was the NBC News Miami bureau chief at the time, and he oversaw the network’s Falklands coverage. And Browne told O’Reilly his account was accurate. As opposed to some of the other accounts, which have to some extent downplayed the danger, Browne said the situation “got progressively more intense” and there were demonstrations in Buenos Aires...

The prosecution move advances the case against Kirchner that was being pursued by late prosecutor Alberto Nisman before he died mysteriously on the eve of congressional hearings on his accusations. The prosecutor who inherited a high-profile case against Argentine President Cristina Fernandez is reaffirming the accusations.

    The story of the Pope’s actions during Argentina’s Dirty War is as riveting as it is inspiring. Pope Francis is pictured in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in a undated file photo. (CNS photo/courtesy of Maria Elena Bergoglio via Reuters) There is so much being written and said about Pope Francis that one is left trying to separate what is real from the hyperbole, the accurate from what is manipulated.

    Now the Iranian constitution requires a new president to be elected, and Rafsanjani’s entry into the contest radically alters what was previously seen as a contest between rival conservative groups. Not that Rafsanjani currently is more than a relative moderate – currently, because in his time he has veered sharply from side to side across Iran’s political spectrum; and relatively moderate because, although he now favours a domestic free market, privatization of state-owned industries, and a moderate position internationally, he is still sought by the Argentinian government for ordering the 1994 bombing of a Jewish centre in Buenos Aires in...

    On Monday, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Israel’s state archive released the 53-year-old transcript of the Cabinet meeting at which then-prime minister David Ben-Gurion informed his ministers that Adolf Eichmann had been captured and was held in Israel. The transcript offers a unique and entirely candid look at one of the key moments in Israel’s history. One of the ministers, Yitzhak Ben-Aharon, was so flabbergasted by the news that he blurted out in Yiddish, “Ve macht man das?” How does one do that? The Cabinet meeting took place on May 23, 1960. Twelve days earlier, a Mossad team captured Eichmann outside of...

    Buenos Aires, Argentina – When torrential rains and flooding hit Argentina, leaving thousands homeless, the “Solidarity Network” founded by a social entrepreneur and Catholic layman named Juan Carr sprang into action. They positioned a large red truck in downtown Buenos Aires outside the Cathedral of Buenos Aires to collect food, clothes and other supplies for the flood victims, with a hand-painted banner reading: “You are not alone … the entire country embraces you!” This reflects the fact that the former occupant of the cathedral, now known to the world as Pope Francis, was a major supporter of Carr's concern for...

    Last week a train accident in Buenos Aires claimed the lives of 50 individuals. While the event is obviously intensely mournful, much of the emotion within Argentina also includes a high level of frustration over the system and society which allowed this to happen. Argentinian culture is known for being proud. Nationalism has been the tool of many leaders, and drove the nation to war over the Falkland Islands in the 80s. Yet there is a general sense of malaise and indignation in a country that was one of the wealthiest in the world a century ago. Indignation is brewing...

    ARCHDIOCESE DENOUNCES ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION FOR HOMOSEXUALS BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, August 3 (CNA) - The controversial case of an Argentinean lesbian couple attempting to undergo artificial insemination in order to have a child has led the Archdiocese of Cordoba to make a public statement on the nature of motherhood. In an interview with the Argentinean daily La Mañana, the spokesman for the archdiocese, Father Pedro Torres, recalled that "motherhood is not a right," since "one cannot consider a child as a possession or a thing." "The natural environment in which children are born is marriage. Insemination as a scientific intervention cannot...

    Early on the morning of March 16th, 1984, William Buckley left for work at the American embassy in Beirut, Lebanon. Officially, Mr. Buckley, a decorated veteran of the Special Forces, served as the political officer at the embassy. In reality, however, Mr. Buckley was the embassy’s CIA station chief. On his way to the compound, Buckley’s car was stopped by a group of masked men, who forced him from his car at gunpoint. His assailants would later be identified as terrorists from the group Islamic Jihad, which served as an alias for the real perpetrators, Hezbollah. The circumstances surrounding the...

    NPR Online ^ | April 2, 2005 | Barbara Bradley Hagerty, April 2, 2005 · "Tip O'Neill was correct," says Father Tom Reese, editor in chief of America, the Catholic weekly magazine. "All politics is local... even in the Catholic Church." Reese suggests that instead of focusing on the possible papal candidates as a bookie would look at horses in the starting gate, try to think about the election from the point of view of the electors, the cardinals who cast the votes. "Each cardinal is thinking, how will this candidate go over in my diocese?" Reese says. "If you're from the Third World, you're concerned with people who are...

    Argentina's dangerous direction February 11th, 2005 Buried deep in the appalling announcement of Cuba's new place on the UN's Human Rights Commission was the name of the country that nominated that outpost of tyranny for the honor: Argentina. It's not the first time the southernmost country in the New World has done the bidding of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Last December, a Cuban dissident who sought de-facto asylum in Havana's Argentine embassy was unexpectedly denied an exit visa and forced back into the hands of Castro's waiting agents. Such events underline Argentina's political direction. A few years ago, Argentina was...

Gaggles of children giggle by the lakeside in a gloriously green park. This is Buenos Aires: So pretty, so elegant and so European that it has often been described as the "Paris of South America". Before Argentina's economic crisis struck in 2001, Buenos Aires was probably the most expensive city in South America: $1 bought you one peso. Now it gets you three, allowing visitors to experience...
