    These photographs are part of a chilling collection of WWII photographs taken by a German soldier in the aftermath of Dunkirk. Today on Remembrance Day, they are a fitting reminder of the fields which played host to some of the bloodiest battles of World War One in which 10 million soldiers died. The pictures show the lifeless beaches of northern France littered with thousands of allied vehicles left behind following the infamous evacuation.One disturbing snap shows the rotting corpse of a British soldier lapping at the shore. Others show the devastation inflicted on the town of Dunkirk following days of...
  • Sandusky a State Secret (what you find odd about this article?)

    Madden: Sandusky a State Secret: The Jerry Sandusky situation seems a matter of failure to connect certain dots, or perhaps unwillingness in that regard. Lots of people besides the former Penn State defensive coordinator have some explaining to do. Allegations of improper conduct with an underage male first surfaced in 1998, while Sandusky was still employed by Penn State. That incident allegedly occurred in a shower at Penn State's on-campus football facility. No charges were filed. Sandusky retired the next year, in 1999. He was 55, prime age for a coach. Odd, to say the least - especially with Joe...

    Former US President Richard Nixon told a US grand jury "I practically blew my stack" when he learned of the long gap on a White House tape sought in the Watergate scandal investigation, according to transcripts released on Thursday. In one of the biggest political scandals in US history, much has been made of the 18 1/2-minute gap on tapes of Nixon's White House conversations. The key question -- did it include incriminating information about the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters by his campaign operatives? Nixon spent hours before the grand jury on June 23 and 24, 1975,...

    President Barack Obama is expected to reveal plans to station about 500 to 1000 Marines at a barracks in Darwin and to expand the US navy's use of bases at the Northern Territory capital and in Perth in Western Australia. He will make the announcement in Australia next week during a visit that includes Hawaii and Indonesia designed to assert America's commitment to the Asia Pacific region. The bases would be beyond the expanding range of new Chinese missiles, which can reach the main US Pacific bases on Okinawa island in Japan and the small island territory of Guam, east...

    Long before the scandal that is rocking the Penn State football program came to light, the school already had lost two verbally committed players from its recruiting class of 2012. Offensive tackle J.J. Denman flipped his commitment to Wisconsin, and Rochester, N.Y., defensive lineman Jarron Jones switched to Notre Dame. According to CBS Sports Network analyst Tom Lemming, there are more players on Penn State's current commitment list who could help the Irish. “In my opinion,” Lemming said, “they should be the guys (Notre Dame) is interested in.”

    For Star Trek, it truly was the final frontier. More than 40 years after it was filmed, an episode of the famous show in which Spock and Captain Kirk dress up as Nazis has been shown in Germany for the first time. The Patterns of Force episode was never screened in 1968 because it was little more than two decades after the downfall of Hitler's regime. Although broadcaster ZDF showed it for the first time, it was not on until after 10pm - and viewers were warned that no-one under the age of 16 should see it. In the episode...

    Some members of a bankrupt Orange County, Calif. megachurch are expressing outrage after fielding an email request for congregants to deliver food to waiting limos so that it can ferried to the founder's sick wife. The appeal comes weeks after a lawsuit charged that the founder of the Crystal Cathedral house of worship, Rev.

    In an announcement that is likely to deepen concerns over the U.S. economic woes the Federal Reserve has slashed growth and employment projections for 2011 and 2012. Data projections released by the Fed suggested that it had revised a measure of the average, or “central tendency,” for the U.S. economy's 2011 gross domestic product growth rate from the 2.7-2.9 per cent range to the 1.6-1.7 per cent range. Similarly, the central bank cut its 2012 projection for growth from the 3.3-3.7 per cent range to the 2.5-2.9 per cent range. Unemployment which in June the Fed projected would hover between...

The 13 officers, two sergeants, one lieutenant and five others were arraigned in a Bronx court on Friday after handing themselves in last night following a mammoth city investigation. But union members made their voice heard by clogging the street near the courthouse, filling the hallways near the arraignment room and applauding in court after the officers left.Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, said ticket fixing was sanctioned...

    Whether it was the bitter cold or the wrath of Hurricane Irene, a major weather alert never seemed to be far away in 2011. Tropical Storm Lee prompted President Barack Obama to pledge disaster aid to the areas of Louisiana battered by the storm last month. That makes 90 disasters declared by the commander-in-chief, a new record in yearly disaster declarations - and 2011 isn't even over yet.The staggering figure from FEMA now tops last year, when President Obama declared 81 disasters. It’s the most of any four-year presidential term except George W Bush, who declared 238 in his second...

    MUNCIE, Ind. -- Officials in Delaware County have cut off electrical outlets that anti-Wall Street protesters had been using during their weeklong encampment outside the county government building. Occupy Muncie protesters found the outlets cut off Wednesday evening. The dozen-or-so protesters had been plugging in an extension cord to power coffee makers and a webcam used to livestream video during the overnight hours. Delaware County commissioner Larry Bledsoe told The Star Press that taxpayers shouldn't be providing power for the protesters and that there are fire concerns if protesters were to run a heater inside a tent.

    SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Texas law enforcement officials say several Mexican drug cartels are luring youngsters as young as 11 to work in their smuggling operations.

Fearing the First Lady might be in danger, minders ordered the captain of the HMS Edinburgh stationed in Cape Town, South Africa, to switch them away from her five-star suite.

    A pair of bungling sailors nearly swabbed the deck with their faces as a high-speed jet came in for a landing - on them. The incident took place aboard the USS George Washington in the Pacific Ocean last month. A video posted on YouTube shows the F/A-18 Super Hornet approaching the vessel behind the sailors as they walk on the flight deck without looking. Just before the jet is about to land, the alert pilot pulls up and narrowly misses them, as the video shows the plane screaming right above their heads and back into the sky. The jet, however,...

The President claimed on Thursday to have ‘had a chance to meet a young man named Robert Baroz’ - but they have reportedly never met. He also talked about the teacher ‘receiving three pink slips because of budget cuts’ - but neglected to mention he reportedly never lost his job. ‘He’s got two decades of teaching experience,’ President Obama said in a press conference on Thursday. ‘He’s got a master’s degree.

Fact is, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of terrible album covers. A web-search suggests that 90 percent of them come from religious...

The valuable rock was one of 50 presented to each state after the 1972 space mission.

The rock, believed to have a black market value of up to $10 million, had been missing since at least 1980...

The Bureau's William Gawthrop was recorded making the 'dangerous' remarks to an audience of over 60 law enforcement officials during a counter-terrorism seminar in New York three months ago. Gawthrop's presentation in June told the audience that the fight against Al Qaeda is a 'waste' compared to the threat posed by the ideology of Islam itself.

  • Rebel without a bra: Jane Fonda said her biggest regret was not sleeping with Che Guevara

Because her second husband, Tom Hayden, a Left-wing activist with a bulbous nose and acne-scarred cheeks, had forbidden her to have either a washing machine or dishwasher. Far too bourgeois.</p>

Their home is now valued at $133,464, though they owe about $177,000. When James became ill, the couple encountered financial difficulties...
