    An everyday fourth-grade reading class in New Jersey was interrupted on Monday by a real-life fairy tale ending. Ten-year-old Celine Gonzalez and her school-mates were working on a class assignment when her dad made a surprise visit, having just returned from a seven-month posting in Afghanistan. Celine’s eyes grew wide, her jaw dropped and she began to cry...

    A kitten born with his legs back to front and abandoned by its owners has been given a new lease of life after pioneering surgery. Corky was found by little boy dragging himself along a pavement in Fargo, North Dakota, and was brought into an animal pound, where he was due to be put down. But Gail Ventzke and Carol Stefonek, co-founders and directors of CATS Cradle Shelter, heard about the brave moggy and were intent on saving his life. Seven-month-old Corky suffers from a congenital deformity called 'Bilateral Arthrogryposis', meaning his back legs were the wrong way round, and...

  • Prosecutor Plans Announcement as George Zimmerman's Legal Team Calls It Quits

    ABC ^ | April 10, 2012 | ENJOLI FRANCIS, MATT GUTMAN (@mattgutmanABC) and CANDACE SMITH
    A special prosecutor promised "new information regarding the Trayvon Martin shooting death investigation" within 72 hours, prompting speculation that the alleged shooter, George Zimmerman, could be charged soon. The announcement that the prosecutor, State Attorney Angela Corey, would soon hold a news conference came just hours after Zimmerman's lawyers said they would no longer represent him. Corey said Monday that she will not present the case to a grand jury; she retains the power to decide herself whether to press charges against Zimmerman in the shooting. Zimmerman's lawyers Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig said today they were withdrawing from the...

    If you want a true blessing on this, the most sacred of days, listen to this rendition of He's Alive. The most amazing part of the production of this song was that it was performed Live on National T.V. in 1989 during the Country Music Awards and what a blessing it was (and is). Whatever happens to us as a Nation, we must remember that this is truly what it is all about. I hope this blesses you as much as it has me. He's Alive! He's Alive! He's Alive and I'm Forgiven!

    The attorney counseling George Zimmerman, who shot unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin as he was walking home from the store with a bag of Skittles, says if charges are filed, Zimmerman will argue that he acted in self-defense and that Florida's stand-your-ground law applies. Attorney Craig Sonner said the public is only hearing part of the story, and when all the facts come out, it will be clear that Zimmerman acted in self defense. A grand jury is scheduled to begin hearing the case April 10. "George Zimmerman suffered a broken nose, and had an injury to the back of...

    The Washington Post ^ | Thursday, March 22 | Sari Horwitz and Ellen Nakashima
    The Obama administration has approved guidelines that allow counterterrorism officials to lengthen the period of time they retain information about U.S. residents, even if they have no known connection to terrorism. The changes allow the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the intelligence community’s clearinghouse for terrorism data, to keep information for up to five years. Previously, the center was required to promptly destroy — generally within 180 days — any information about U.S. citizens or residents unless a connection to terrorism was evident. The new guidelines, which were approved Thursday by Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.,...

    Politico ^ | 3/21/12 2:37 PM EDT | Brian Glicklich, Spokesperson, Rush Limbaugh Show
    David Brock is so outraged at Rush Limbaugh’s words of three weeks ago that he started organizing a protest — almost 3 years ago. It was planned ahead and activated at the first moment Brock could manipulate a media frenzy. Make no mistake, Brock’s “marketplace of ideas” offers only one brand: Brand Brock. All others will be forced off the shelves with intimidation and lies. Media Matters for America stands for censorship, and nothing more than that. Their ginned-up election year anger is directed at the words of their media political opposition — similar expressions are ignored when used by...

    Two radio stations have dropped The Rush Limbaugh Show from their schedules following the firestorm surrounding his offensive attack on law student Sandra Fluke on his show last week. KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii, and WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, announced today that they would no longer carry the show after the right-wing radio host called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ over her support of President Barack Obama’s new contraception plan. Limbaugh made a rare public apology on Saturday in the wake of the uproar caused by his comments, which led to several advertisers pulling out of the...

    The Tea Party hit its stride in the summer of 2009 when concerned citizens showed up to town halls across the United States to protest the healthcare takeover law being considered in Congress. The people rightly felt that the bill’s labyrinthine and onerous regulations were corrupt and designed to increase the power of the government, line the pockets of shortsighted insurance companies, and squeeze as much blood from the country’s taxpayer turnip as possible. --------------- President Obama’s new medical proposal seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical system in the fiscal 2013 budget and $12.9 billion by 2017,...

Headstones commemorating British and Allied servicemen, killed during World War II campaigns in the Western Desert, lay smashed and strewn across Benghazi Military Cemetery. Protesters rampaged through site on Friday, despite efforts by America to calm tensions sparked when it emerged U.S. soldiers had burned Muslim holy books in a pile of rubbish at a military base in Afghanistan.

    For Whitney Houston and her family, God was always paramount. That's likely why her mother, Cissy Houston, eschewed a big, public memorial at New Jersey's Prudential Center for a private, invitation-only funeral on Saturday in the Newark church that launched her daughter's career. Newark Mayor Cory Booker confirmed Tuesday that the family has no "plans to set up a public viewing at the Prudential Center this Friday" despite reports to the contrary. He also said that the city won't be...

The school opened in 1989 but now has 3,500 women in training to become kunoichi - female ninjas.

    To conservatives, the biggest strike against Mitt Romney is the health care plan he put in place in Massachusetts, but Newt Gingrich lavished praise on Romney’s plan after it was passed in 2006. “We agree entirely with Governor Romney and Massachusetts legislators that our goal should be 100 percent insurance coverage for all Americans,” Gingrich wrote in 2006. And, Gingrich wrote, the key to achieving that goal was doing what Romney did in Massachusetts: Requiring everybody...

    Prior to the “Republican Revolution” of 1994, Rep. Newt Gingrich of Georgia had earned an A rating with Gun Owners of America. But that all changed in 1995, after Republicans were swept to power and Gingrich became Speaker of the House. The Republicans gained the majority, thanks in large part to gun owners outraged by the Clinton gun ban. And upon taking the reins of the House, Speaker Gingrich said famously that, “As long as I am Speaker of this House, no gun control legislation is going to move in committee or on the floor of this House and there...

    Wednesday, September 7 In His Time Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him. Psalm 37:7 Recommended Reading Galatians 6:10-18 We've often heard that it is wise to live within our means. But today financial advisors everywhere are saying this is no longer good enough--we need to live below our means. According to a recent study on the phrase, "Good things come to those who wait," people are making great strides. They are willing to pass up the immediate, smaller reward to wait for the bigger, more satisfying one. As Christians, many of us are willing to pass on...

    Tuesday, September 6 Holy Harvest Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. Galatians 6:7 Recommended Reading Galatians 6:7-9 Have you ever heard of a farmer who planted corn, yet harvested wheat? Or have you seen tomato seeds grow into watermelons? Few things in life are as certain as the agricultural principle that whatever seed you plant, that's what you'll reap. The same is true in technology: garbage in, garbage out. Finance: If you don't invest, you won't get a return. The same, of course, is true in the spiritual...

    Monday, September 5 Share the Load Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2 Recommended Reading Galatians 6:1-5 Do you ever carry a backpack? Adult backpackers are recommended to carry no more than one-third of their body weight or muscle soreness and strained ligaments may result.1 And according to physicians, children should carry no more than 10-20 percent of their body weight.2 Whether you're a backpacker or not, it seems we always have stuff to carry around with us. But when that "stuff" is internal, in the form of heavy burdens brought on by life's...

    Friday, September 2 To the Rescue! Rescue me, and I will return, For you are the LORD my God. Jeremiah 31:18 Recommended Reading 1 Thess. 5:14-23 A thief is usually not happy to see law enforcement arrive at the scene of his crime. But last April, a burglar became trapped while trying to climb through the small window of a fifth story apartment. It took firefighters 30 minutes to get the bungling burglar to safety--where he was promptly arrested.1 The botched robbery is a great example of sin's trap and the need for rescuers. No one plans on getting trapped....

    Thursday, September 1 Follow the Leader For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Romans 8:14 Recommended Reading Galatians 5:16-26 Directionally challenged people everywhere were thrilled when navigation systems became available. No longer would the embarrassing, "I'm lost" phone call have to be made. Now we travel worry free, allowing the system to do the work for us--until it leads us astray. For every appreciative GPS story, there are just as many frustrated users who circle a block three times before realizing there's not a restaurant in sight, or far worse, find...
