    A married woman in Colombia and her lover were caught off guard when they called an Uber to head to a motel and the driver turned out to be the woman’s husband. Identified only as Yeimy, the woman and her lover, Jesús Barrios, had kept their affair secret for more than a year, the Colombian newspaper El Espectador reported Thursday. But this week they were caught when they called an Uber and Yeimy’s husband was unexpectedly in the driver’s seat. On Tuesday, Yeimy and Jesús met up in the city of Santa Marta and decided to head to a motel...

    Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro dodged an apparent assassination attempt when drones armed with explosives detonated while he was delivering a speech, officials said. Mr Maduro and his wife, Cilia Flores, looked up at the sky and winced on Saturday after hearing the sound of an explosion pierce the air. He was giving a speech to hundreds of soldiers in Caracas which was being broadcast live on television when the incident occurred. “This was an attempt to kill me,” the 55-year-old said later in an impassioned retelling of the events. "Today they attempted to assassinate me." A uniformed official bleeds from...
  • Doug Ford Is Dead Right, Injection Sites Dead Wrong

    History shows that more money, more social workers, and injections sites will end in failure Not all the lunatics are in the asylum. Why? Because federal prison officials are providing needles to prisoners so they can inject themselves with illegal drugs. Now, Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario, is being criticized for damning the use of injection sites in prison and in Canadian cities. Condoning drug use is the most illogical way to combat North America’s opioid epidemic. But what else would work? The drug problem is like a cancerous growth that kills, not just people. Look at what has happened...

    A Columbia University student publicly complained about her professor using the word "Negro," even though he said it in a lesson about 1960s America. The Columbia Daily Spector ran a story Thursday about what happens "when professors make racially insensitive remarks." The paper cited a complaint by student Maria Fernanda Martinez of a perceived "microagression." Martinez said her professor told the class it was appropriate to use the term "Negro" when discussing the 1960's, a time when that was the politically correct term for African-Americans.

    Professors want bookstore owners to rescind their Over 200 Columbia University faculty, students, and alumni have pledged to boycott a New York bookstore after its owners apologized for promoting and selling a children's book that praised Palestinian violence against Israel. The petition condemns Book Culture, an independent bookstore with a location near Columbia, for apologizing after Jewish and non-Jewish communities objected to its selling P is for Palestine by Golbarg Bashi, a book for young children that glorified the intifada. The petition, first reported by Campus Reform, includes a refusal to buy books from or order course materials through Book...

    Cables Portray Expanded Reach of Drug Agency By GINGER THOMPSON and SCOTT SHANE WASHINGTON — The Drug Enforcement Administration has been transformed into a global intelligence organization with a reach that extends far beyond narcotics, and an eavesdropping operation so expansive it has to fend off foreign politicians who want to use it against their political enemies, according to secret diplomatic cables. In far greater detail than previously seen, the cables, from the cache obtained by WikiLeaks and made available to some news organizations, offer glimpses of drug agents balancing diplomacy and law enforcement in places where it can be...

    Whether it is merely the FBI trying to restore its shattered credibility or justice finally being done, the news that the pay-for-play activities of the Clinton Foundation are going to get renewed and serious attention is welcome. The Clintons have made a career of ignoring, breaking and skirting the law. Up to this point for the Clintons crime has paid off handsomely, but now they may find themselves caught between Little Rock and a hard place: The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary...

    Columbia Sportswear may be the next business to flee downtown Portland after a series of frightening encounters with the city's homeless population, including car break-ins, human waste dumped by the office's front door and threats to its employees. In an op-ed piece published earlier this month by The Oregonian, Columbia Sportswear President and CEO Tim Boyle said he is concerned he made a mistake when he opened a headquarters for the company’s Sorel footwear brand downtown, calling the situation "outrageous and unacceptable." "In fact, I am so concerned about the safety of our employees at the Sorel headquarters that we...

    Fascist protesters from groups Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Southern Poverty Law Center of Columbia University and others shut down Tommy Robinson’s speech Tuesday night at Columbia University. Robinson’s speech on immigration, “The Fall of Europe – Mass Immigration” was slated for 8 p.m. It opened to a Q & A in an effort to quell the crowd of ticket-holding protesters and allow their arguments to be heard, but quickly folded as they began chanting, “Let them in! Let them in! Let them in!” in reference to the crowd of protesters without tickets beating on the doors to gain entrance. The...

    Whenever a journalism school claims it has found a new and improved way to train reports, it seems, the result is an even more partisan and ideological training camp than what is already in place. Columbia University leads the way in this sort of pedagogy. “Independent journalism requires skepticism as a mandatory practice,” Giannina Segnini writes in the Columbia Journalism Review. “No matter how truthfully a presidential administration conducts itself, reporters should always question, contrast, and complement official information to find the closest version to the truth.” So far so good, but where has she been for the past eight...

    Columbia University’s “Knight Institute” is suing the Trump administration on behalf of seven individuals alleging the president “blocked” them from reading his Twitter feed. The lawsuit, filed with the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that due to Mr. Trump’s usage of his personal Twitter account to engage with the public, his @realdonaldtrump Twitter account is a “public forum,” blocking citizens of access is “unconstitutional,” and his personal Twitter account should be treated as a public forum under federal law.
