  • This Tiny Georgia Town Received More Syrian Refugees Than LA And NYC Combined

    The Daily Caller ^ | 9/21/2016 | Peter Hasson
    Stone Mountain, Georgia — a city with just over 6,000 residents and a poverty rate well above the national average — has resettled more Syrian refugees than Los Angeles and New York City combined. Since October 1 (the start of the fiscal year), 72 Syrian refugees have been placed in Stone Mountain, State Department data shows. Los Angeles has resettled just 45 Syrian refugees, while NYC has only resettled nine. Syrians aren’t the only refugees placed in Stone Mountain this year. Since October 1, 299 refugees have been resettled in the Georgia town. That’s roughly five percent of Stone Mountain’s...

    The parents of Eliza O’Neill, the little girl with an incurable and deadly brain disorder, are making one final desperate push to raise funds for the clinical trial that will test a gene therapy for the disease—and perhaps offer hope for Eliza. The O’Neills have already raised $1.3 million through a viral video and hope that by Eliza’s fifth birthday on Sunday they’ll hit their $1.8 million goal. While there is no guarantee that Eliza will be among those chosen to participate in the trial, which could start sometime in the middle of 2015, its organizers say that at this...

  • Skeleton found in parking lot identified as that of England's King Richard III, experts say

    He wore the English crown, but he ended up defeated, humiliated and reviled. Now things are looking up for King Richard III. Scientists announced Monday that they had found the monarch's 500-year-old remains under a parking lot in the city of Leicester -- a discovery Richard's fans say will inspire new research into his maligned history. University of Leicester researchers say tests on a battle-scarred skeleton unearthed last year prove "beyond reasonable doubt" that it is the king, who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, and whose remains have been missing for centuries. "Richard III, the last...

  • Ferris Bueller Super Bowl ad: Why it's online now, and why Broderick at first refused to star

    Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime ad break is still almost a week away, but you can get a sneak peek at Honda’s new Ferris Bueller-inspired spot by clicking below. In fact, you’ll get a whole lot more than a peek: This is the full two-and-a-half minute version of Matthew Broderick reprising his role in an homage to the iconic 1986 John Hughes comedy. The clip that will be broadcast during halftime — where ad time costs $3.5 million for 30 seconds — will be only one minute long.

    Forecasters say Hurricane Irene that is taking aim at the East Coast could become a Category 4 monster by Thursday. The National Hurricane Center late Wednesday said Irene is approaching the northwestern Bahamas as a Category 3 storm with winds at 120 mph. But forecasters say that could increase quickly over the next day. Hurricane and tropical storm watches will likely be required for parts of the coast of the Carolinas by early Thursday. Winds in Category 4 storms are more than 131 mph.

  • Will Obama observe the fasting month of Ramadan?

    During the month of Ramadan, Muslims refrain from eating or drinking starting from dawn till dusk. To prepare for the fasting, Muslims wake up before dawn and the fajr prayer to eat a meal (Sahoor). Muslims break their fast at Maghrib (at sunset) prayer time with a meal called Iftar. Muslims may continue to eat and drink after the sun has set until the next morning's fajr prayer call. (from Wikipedia) I wonder if we will see any photos of Obama drinking or eating during daylight hours this month. I believe that technically he may be exempt from these requirements...
  • Treasurys gain on payrolls; Fed action seen as more likely (More money printing)

    MarketWatch ^ | 8/6/10 | Deborah Levine
    Treasury prices rose Friday, pushing yields on 2-year notes to a record low, after a weak report on the labor market raised expectations that the Federal Reserve may take steps next week toward using monetary policy to support the faltering U.S. economy. "Bond market bulls will use a soft number to justify arguments for the Fed to reinvest proceeds from mortgage holdings, and to reinforce the argument that the risk of a double-dip [recession] is rising," said strategist at RBS Securities. (snip) "It was a pathetic report," said Tom di Galoma, head of U.S. rates trading at Guggenheim Partners. "The...

    The ship was buried as junk two centuries ago - landfill to expand a bustling little island of commerce called Manhattan. When it re-emerged this week, surrounded by skyscrapers, it was an instant treasure that popped up from the mud near ground zero. A 32-foot piece of the vessel was found in soil 20 feet under street level, amid noisy bulldozers excavating a parking garage for the future World Trade Center. Near the site of so many grim finds - Sept. 11 victims' remains, twisted steel - this discovery was as unexpected as it was thrilling. Historians say the ship,...

    President Barack Obama said Sunday that he expects China to follow through on a policy move made last week to loosen the yuan's de-facto peg to the U.S. dollar. "My expectation is that they are going to be serious about the policy they themselves have announced," Obama said after meeting with leaders of the Group of 20 leading economies in Toronto. "We do expect that as more market forces come to bear, given the enormous surplus China has, the [yuan] will appreciate significantly." Obama argued that an undervalued yuan wasn't sustainable and was inconsistent with the G-20's goals of balancing...

    Emergency crews were called to a Sandy Springs home Tuesday. When they arrived, they found a home filled with garbage and a woman nearly buried alive inside. Investigators said it took emergency personnel nearly 45 minutes to extricate the woman. Emergency crews were called to a home on Kitty Hawk Drive, near Roswell Road for a medical call. When crews arrived they found a home covered in chest high garbage and investigators said the home smelled like a garbage dump. Outside the home, cars were sitting in the front yard covered in mildew and boxes of food were piled high...
