    A young San Bernardino couple is going public with questions about supermodel Gisele Bundchen's "no questions asked" $5000.00 reward offer, which remains unpaid more than two weeks after the couple returned Bundchen's dog only to be arrested at gunpoint, handcuffed and held in custody. Although cleared by the police, the couple has no explanation from Bundchen of why they were treated like criminals and denied the reward. Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) December 10, 2004 -- Supermodel Gisele Bundchen’s “no questions asked” $5000.00 reward offer for her lost dog just before Thanksgiving, may have gotten her dog back, but, according to the...

    By PETER PORCO Anchorage Daily News November 26, 2004 ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Sixteen-year-old Rachelle A. Waterman would appear to be any parent's ideal child - an honor student, an athlete, a gifted singer. But for months, she planned her mother's murder with two of her former boyfriends who are eight years her senior, according to Alaska State Troopers. Two weekends ago on Southeast's Prince of Wales Island, their plot ended in the death of 48-year-old Lauri Waterman of Craig, according to court papers. Lauri Waterman, a teacher's aide and community activist, was killed by one of the men using a...

    WASHINGTON (July 13) - The Democratic National Committee released on Tuesday its lineup of the big-name politicians speaking at the convention this month, and it included every major Democratic star except one. There were Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, near the top of the list. Al Gore was there, too, and so was Edward M. Kennedy. Even the wife of the Iowa governor made the cut. But Hillary Rodham Clinton, the junior senator from New York and one of the most prominent names in the party, was nowhere to be found. That caught the attention of many Democrats, who wondered...

    A 13-year-old boy who gave a girl a lovebite at school is facing an assault charge, an allegation his parents call excessive. Police in Richland, Texas, issued the teenager with a summons for assault by contact after the girl's parents reported the incident to Richland Middle School, officials said. The boy's mother, Patricia Singh, said her son had been punished with a three-day suspension from school. He was not named because of his age. Assault by contact, a class C misdemeanour, carries a fine of about $US280 ($400). The boy, who pleaded not guilty at his court hearing, told the...

    MLK Rally marked by Bush, Ashcroft bashing & absence of US flags; Speaker Praises Mugabe The rally on the US Capitol today to mark the 40th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech was broadcast live on C-SPAN. The event was attended by Democratic presidential contenders Howard Dean, Carol Moseley Braun and Al Sharpton. The following are my personal observations, facts hidden from you by puff-pieces appearing on the wire services. The most stunning aspect of this rally was the almost complete, seemingly choreographed absence of the Old Glory throughout the vast crowd, estimated by organizers...

    State and local officials disagree on the accuracy of a national study estimating that one Utah woman in five has been raped. However, most of them do agree that the situation bears a closer look. And a new multidisciplinary state council plans on taking one. The Utah Sexual Violence Council is made up of representatives from victim advocates and from organizations including the Department of Health, the Department of Corrections, the Utah Sentencing Commission and the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault. "It's just in its infancy," said Ned Searle, domestic violence state coordinator. "We're having the first real meetings in...

    Lesbian pastor ruffles Southern Baptist tradition Jim PattersonAssociated Press STANDING HER GROUND: April Baker, an associate pastor at Glendale Baptist Church in Nashville, Tenn., has brought condemnation upon the church from two Baptist conventions because she is a lesbian and her congregation has chosen to support her. July 05, 2003 — 2:12 a.m. NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The sermon at Glendale Baptist Church one recent Sunday recalled how Jesus mingled with tax collectors and prostitutes, refusing to snub people for the unpopular things they did. "What does it mean that God's love is for everyone?" preached Glendale member Eileen Campbell-Reed,...

    <p>Lawrence High is the usual fortress of manila-brick blandness and boxy 1960s architecture. At lunch, the metalheads saunter out to the smokers' park, while the AP types get pizzas at Marinara's, where they talk about -- what else? -- other people. The hallways are filled with lip-glossed divas in designer clothes and packs of girls in midriff-baring track tops. The guys run the gamut, too: skate punks, rich boys in Armani, and saggy-panted crews with their Eminem swaggers. In other words, they look pretty much as you'd expect.</p>

    Abiding Truth Ministries ^ | 2001 | Scott Lively
    Scripture teaches in Genesis that when God created man in His image, He created us male and female. The implication is that God’s character spans the full spectrum of masculine and feminine qualities. This attribute is also revealed in the person of Jesus, born as a male, but manifesting both masculinity and femininity in His actions. When exhibiting feminine qualities, Jesus was more nurturing and relationship-oriented than any woman. When exhibiting masculinity, Jesus was more forceful and results-oriented than any man.Unfortunately, the modern American church, along with the majority of its leaders, has rejected masculinity in favor of an effeminate...

    I was what the sociologists call an "early adopter" of feminism. Soon after arriving at college, in 1970, I knew that it was the religion for me. I had discarded the religion I grew up with, Christianity, as an insultingly simpleminded thing, but feminism filled the gap. Like a religion it offered a complete philosophical worldview, one that displayed me as victim in the center, a feature with immeasurable appeal to a female teenager. Feminism had its own gnostic analysis of reality, by which everything in existence was decoded to be about the oppression of women; it had sacred books,...

    Winter 2003 | Vol. 13, No. 1 Why Feminism Is AWOL on Islam Kay S. Hymowitz Argue all you want with many feminist policies, but few quarrel with feminism’s core moral insight, which changed the lives (and minds) of women forever: that women are due the same rights and dignity as men. So, as news of the appalling miseries of women in the Islamic world has piled up, where are the feminists? Where’s the outrage? For a brief moment after September 11, when pictures of those blue alien-creaturely shapes in Afghanistan filled the papers, it seemed as if feminists...

    When Israeli troops stormed Bethlehem last week, they seized an unlikely suspect on Israel's most-wanted list: Jala Abu Ajamia, a 17-year-old schoolgirl with no record of violence or political activism. At least a dozen soldiers entered her home in the Dheisheh refugee camp at 3 a.m. Friday. After capturing Abu Ajamia in her pajamas, they searched the house and questioned relatives for five hours, then handed her over to Israel's Shin Bet security service. Abu Ajamia attracted Israeli scrutiny in a most unusual way by complaining about an arranged marriage to a 27-year-old cousin. The teenager, who was then 16,...

    Telling a New Yorker he's made a mistake is definitely a job for a volunteer, but as it is the place I was born and raised, I feel an obligation to tell the good folks that live there too a few things about the albatross they've hung around their collective neck. As much as any state in the Union, New York is populated by overachievers and pragmatists, not susceptible to the spiel of political con artists who show up periodically and try to pound sunshine up their asses. Suddenly they've decided to shoot crap with their state's future. The grim...

    Let's make sure boys get to university Stephen T. Easton National Post The last decade of the 20th century saw a profound change in the enrollment structure of Canadian higher education. From 1987 to 1997, total university enrollment increased from 486,000 to 573,000. At the same time, the percentage of women enrolled increased from rough parity in 1987 to a level where there are now 120 women for every 100 men on campus. Remarkably, the national average is is reflected faithfully at the provincial level. This may be a boon for the social lives of the young men, but the...
