  • US named one of the top ten 'most dangerous countries for women' (So, why are women still coming?)

    A study released by the Thomson Reuters Foundation reveals that, for the first time, the United States has been named one of the top ten most dangerous countries for women. The mirth is entirely unintentional, even though it's hard to believe that someone isn't pulling the leg of the international community. The study asked 550 "women's experts" which countries are the "most dangerous for women and which country was worst in terms of health care, economic resources, cultural or traditional practices, sexual violence and harassment, non-sexual violence and human trafficking," Leading the list is India, with its rape gangs...

    And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that...

    I caught this from a blog and thought I should post it here for strategic discussion purposes: ************************************* It’s interesting to look at the play between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in light of the Art of War. At least it is to me, and I’m putting down a few observations here because, while both figures have so much of the setting sun about them, the principles of generalship apply nonetheless, and we as protectors have an opportunity to observe and learn when they are played out so starkly and with such potent potential consequences....

    A high school student who survived the deadly Florida shooting on Valentine’s Day that left 17 people dead has slammed his teacher on social media, calling him an “opportunist” and “a coward,” after he allegedly wouldn’t unlock his classroom door and let students in, a report from the Sun-Sentinel said on Friday. Josh Gallagher, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., shared his account on Twitter. He said he was in math class with his teacher Jim Gard when the fire alarm went off. Students began to evacuate, and while Gallagher was near the stairwell, he...

    Stifling a sneeze can rupture your throat, burst an ear drum, or pop a blood vessel in your brain, researchers warned Tuesday. Many people -- when they feel a sneeze coming on -- block all the exits, essentially swallowing the sneeze's explosive force. Just how dangerous this can be was illustrated when a 34-year-old man showed up at the emergency service of a hospital in Leicester, England recently, with a swollen neck and in extreme pain. "The patient described a popping sensation in his neck after he tried to halt a sneeze by pinching the nose and holding his mouth...

The tremor occurred on Tuesday night at about 9.51pm just over 25 miles from the coast of Great Swan Island belonging to Honduras. The earthquake had a depth of 6.2 miles, according to the US Geological Survey.

    It's not just the United States that could soon see itself engaged in a deadly conflict with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. China is also at risk of an imminent war with North Korea, warned some of China's most prestigious national security experts at a conference in Beijing this week. “Conditions on the peninsula now make for the biggest risk of a war in decades,” said Shi Yinhong, director of the Center on American Studies at Renmin University of China in Beijing and an adviser to the State Council of China on diplomacy issues since February 2011, during the...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi warned against an attempt at "thought control" by the Trump administration in response to a report that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was told it was forbidden from using seven words in official documents related to the 2019 budget. "DANGER!", the California Democrat tweeted Saturday in all caps, adding that the administration is "going further down a dangerous and un-American path" by banning such words as "science-based" and "diversity."

    **SNIP** According to the institution, FMC Devens is one of six federal medical centers in the country. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving brother in the Boston bombing attack, was also originally held at FMC Devens. While some federal inmates are transferred to Devens from other prisons when serious medical treatment is needed, Weiner was ordered to serve his term at Devons from the beginning. In May, Weiner, 53, pleaded guilty to one charge of transferring obscene material to a minor in federal court in Manhattan. The charges stem from communications that the former congressman had with a 15-year-old girl on social...

    Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner both showed up to a Manhattan courthouse Wednesday to go before a divorce judge. Abedin, the longtime close aide to Hillary Clinton, arrived at 2:05 p.m., wearing a trim black suit and high black pumps, carrying a white handbag. She was with her lawyer and only offered a polite, “Hi” to reporters. Thirty seconds later, Weiner arrived with his lawyer. The disgraced former congressman from Queens wore black slacks, blue-grey blazer, brown shoes. “I have no comment at all,” he said as he posed for photographers. “Got what you need? I’d hate for you guys...

    When President Trump said on Sunday that America would consider stopping all trading with countries doing business with North Korea, critics responded by saying this would mean economic ruin for the United States. This is a shocking admission that the cost of economic globalism has been the compromise of American independence. And it should rally Americans to the cause championed by Donald Trump as he campaigned for the presidency, the cause of economic nationalism. Consider that after decades of indoctrination about the blessings of global trade, Americans are now told that our economic prosperity is dependent on trade with foreign...

    Given that 2016 was the worst year for homicides in nearly two decades in Chicago, it comes as little surprise that the city has a reputation as one of the most violent places in the United States. Last year, there were 762 murders, 3,550 shooting incidents and 4,331 shooting victims with an average of 12 people shot every single day. In fact, the Windy City experienced more murders than New York and Los Angeles combined last year with the number of homicides there since 2001 eclipsing U.S. war dead in Iraq and Afghanistan by late November. Even though it had...

    Dubai: The deadliest jobs also tend to be ones with low pay and crazy hours, in addition to the high risk. These jobs are common to almost every country in the world, as they are professions we cannot really do without for a functioning economy. Many of these occupations, however, do not apply to the UAE except for construction workers, truck drivers and sanitation workers. In an online poll conducted a few years ago, voters rated firefighters and high-rise window cleaners as being in the deadliest jobs in the UAE.

    Malibu is known as the playland for the rich and famous in the Los Angeles area.  But is it overrated? An article in the Hollywood Reporter talks about one of the most common pastimes in Malibu: dying by car. Hollywood's summer getaway of lavish oceanfront rentals attracts 15 million annual visitors, but its main highway's "Blood Alley" is notorious for vehicular tragedy. Fifteen percent of the more than 400 accidents each year on PCH [Pacific Coast Highway] are parking-related, and the shoulders on both sides of the highway are perpetually lethal. Rapper MC Supreme, aka Dewayne Coleman, was killed...

    Please stop, I silently beg the three drivers heading down the on ramp to Interstate 70 from Washington Avenue. I’m driving parallel to them at 55 mph with a line of traffic behind me. I have my turn signal on signifying that I’m getting off at the exit just west of that on ramp. I cannot slam on my brakes and stop on the highway to allow these drivers to merge into my lane. Yet they keep coming down the ramp toward me. Fear has crept into my throat and I cannot scream if I wanted to. Don’t they understand...

    He was a congressman, he was a sexter. He was a mayoral candidate, he was a sexter. He was the subject of a cringing documentary, he was a sexter. He was ultimately the owner of a computer, seized by the FBI for sexting, that ended up playing a massive role in the 2016 presidential election. He was the husband of one of Hillary Clinton's trusted aides, now he's her ex-husband. And now, Anthony Weiner will officially have a criminal record. The New York Times, citing an unnamed source, reported that Weiner will plead guilty Friday for a single charge of...
