    An American college student who published her sexual exploits as a PowerPoint presentation says she regrets any pain the list has caused after it was circulated on the internet. The mock-thesis, titled "An education beyond the classroom: excelling in the realm of horizontal academics", catalogues intimate details about 13 male students the author has slept with, including dirty talk transcripts and their overall rating out of 10. The presentation includes names and photos from Facebook and athletic action shots. Each man — all of them high-profile students — is scored along criteria that include physical attractiveness, penis size and talent...

    Crystal Mangum's ex boyfriend went to the Durham County district attorney's office Monday, trying to take responsibility for a February incident that left Mangum charged with arson for allegedly setting a pile of clothes on fire. Milton Walker, the ex-boyfriend, says he set his own clothes on fire and damaged his own house and vehicle. "At that time I wasn't on my medication," Walker wrote in a notarized handwritten note. 'The breakup of my relationship aggravated my symptoms and I acted out on the voices I was hearing." Quantcast Mangum is charged with arson, contributing to the delinquency of a...

    There’s been a lot of hype about the USA National Basketball Team playing Iran in the World Basketball Championship. Tuesday, Team USA beat Iran, but with the PC pandering of “our” team, it’s as if we lost. Sadly, Team USA Coach Mike Krzyzewski and players were all too dhimmi-esque regarding Iran. Barf. Then, the cheerleaders had to wear long pants to respect Islam and Iran. Double barf. First there’s Coach K. Imagine if it was 1940, and he had restricted himself to this kind of wimpitude when playing Hitler’s German team: The main interest in the Iran game comes from...

    DURHAM -- Crystal Gail Mangum is in police custody under $150,000 bond after court officials accused her of violating a condition of a previous pre-trial release agreement. An arrest warrant issued Wednesday charges Mangum with not complying with visitation hours detailed in her release agreement. Mani Dexter, the attorney representing her, is consulting with the district attorney's office with hopes of scheduling a hearing later today. Mangum, the discredited accuser in the Duke lacrosse case, was in court in July, on the day Duke University demolished the house where the 2006 lacrosse team held its infamous party, asking to be...

    A blistering report this week identifying how North Carolina's state crime laboratory workers misrepresented blood evidence in dozens of cases over 16 years covered only two of Roy Cooper's years as attorney general. But it's all Cooper's task to clean up the problems at the State Bureau of Investigation lab and overcome questions about its work. The Democrat faces a long road back to restoring trust in the lab that helps state and local law enforcement. The lab will need to regain faith from attorneys and the public, as well as the lawmakers who approve funding for the lab and...

    When Prince Andrew was pictured on a yacht getting touchy-feely with a woman half his age, the denials came thick and fast. They're just friends, said a source, and anyway, she's married. But now it turns out 25-year-old Alexandra Escat is in fact single - and the pair have since been seen jetting off together. The Duke of York, 50, was seen engrossed in a playful conversation with the Filipino model on a luxury yacht last week.

    Newsweek commentator David Graham recently declared the Philadelphia Voter Intimidation controversy to be a non-story: “it’s not about a real investigation; it’s about staging an effective piece of political theater that hurts the Obama administration.” He also meandered into the assertion that the ACORN scandal was “minimal” and “discredited.” Graham’s career-long track record of suppressing news (without troubling himself with investigation) follows him way, way back to his college years at Duke University. Why bring up such ancient history? Well, because he graduated from Duke last year, in 2009.

    Duke University is demolishing the infamous house where a woman alleged she was raped by members of its lacrosse team. Bulldozers began pulling down the home at 610 North Buchanan Street in the Trinity Park neighborhood Monday morning. As recently as May, Duke said it planned to sell the property - just as Duke has done with several other homes in the area. The university has successfully renovated several homes known as "party houses" and then sold them to owner occupants instead of landlords, who typically rent properties near Duke's East Campus. It has been four years since the house...

    With a motion bracelet strapped to her right ankle, Mangum, 31, held a press conference in front of a Savannah Avenue home this morning - where she is on house arrest - to defend herself against a February domestic violence arrest. Mangum was arrested at her Lincoln Street home after police alleged that during an argument with her ex-boyfriend, she set the apartment on fire and tried to kill her now ex-boyfriend while her three young children and two Durham police officers were in the home. “I don’t feel like I’m going to get the justice that I deserve through...

    DURHAM Linwood Wilson, an investigator for Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong in the Duke lacrosse case, was arrested Thursday evening. Durham County sheriff's deputies made the arrest at the request of authorities in Delaware, where Wilson was wanted on cyber stalking and obscenity charges related to a domestic-violence incident, said Major Paul Martin of the Durham County Sheriff's Office. The Delaware warrant was issued June 10, he said. Durham deputies made the arrest at Wilson's home about 6 p.m., Martin said. Wilson was taken to the Durham County jail and released on an unsecured $1,000 bond. Wilson is named in...

Any other information about the movie star’s life, career or beliefs can be obtained from Dave and Roberta Jenkins of Sun City. Enter the couple’s barber shop in El Mirage and you’ll see more than 160 pictures, drawings and posters on the walls. A life-size cardboard cutout of The Duke stands in the corner and other memorabilia is everywhere. No doubt about it, the couple are John Wayne fans. “We had one customer about 20-odd years ago who brought in two (pictures). He brought us in...

    When the Times Square bombing suspect was first reported to be a "white male," I shook my head. I knew that, despite Mayor Bloomberg's asinine musings about how the perpetrator was probably "homegrown" and perhaps someone upset about the healthcare bill, this was nonsense. "It's about as likely as a story about Bill Clinton becoming a monk," I thought. Of course, this was no great insight. Given that 99 percent of the terrorists bedeviling us today are non-white Muslims, it was just common sense — otherwise known as profiling. The critics of Arizona's new immigration law complain that it will...

    Bleacher Report ^ | May 11, 2010 | R. B. Parrish
    Before the attempted frame-up of innocent lacrosse players in Durham, lacrosse had a good reputation. It may have been seen as an elite sport (or, more truly, a regionally delineated sport); but it was also seen as honest, fun, exciting, and one of the few “sports” remaining which still concerned itself with “sportsmanship”. Then came the lies and the false accusations, and a university which was more concerned with the immediate PR fallout than with standing behind its falsely-accused students. And since it fit the convenient narrative which was being constructed, lacrosse was also lambasted. In Durham, three lacrosse players...

    Since the current tragedy at the University of Virginia, the media has frequently brought up the Duke lacrosse case, as though the latter had some kind of relevance to the former. Because such associations are likely to be made in the future, let’s get a few facts straight: The Duke lacrosse players did not commit a crime in Durham; they were the victims of a crime (several crimes in fact: false accusations, and much more). Their community rushed to judge them, including preachers, newspapers, politicians, and assumed whatever “truths” were most convenient for their own agendas. The comparisons with Scottsboro...

    What's getting slammed now, as it did with the Duke scandal, is the "culture" of lacrosse, as if the moment a boy picks up a lacrosse stick he overnight becomes a raging idiot who is probably prone to violent and abusive behavior. Any right-minded person knows there's no basis for such a broad stroke. Over the years I've encountered some true messes in lacrosse, players with poor conduct and a bad attitude who had no right in that or any other game. But those bad apples can be found in any sport. When the Love murder was made public, and...

    The game of lacrosse originated with Native Americans , largely the Huron and Iroquois tribes. Westerners—missionaries and fur trappers—first saw it in the 1600’s. The Indians would play the game as symbolic warfare, with hundreds of men at a time, for days on end, with fields that knew no boundaries. Some historical records suggest that they would sometimes play to the death. George Huguely played lacrosse on a field that knew no boundaries. He played it to the death– his ex-girlfriend’s death; or so the reporting goes. But the story line is bogus. Granted, there is little doubt of his...
