    Wednesday, March 26, 2014 An Egyptian bride murdered her husband by hanging him with the help of her brother during her honeymoon on the grounds she does not love him. The woman told police she had been forced to marry that man and that she planned to kill him because she could not live with him. Newspapers said police arrested Bashayer, 23, and her 22-year-old brother on charges of murdering her husband at their house in a small village in the eastern Al Sharqiya province.

    President Obama's honeymoon with the world is over. What was it, exactly, about Obama's controversy-marred trip to Germany and the G8 Summit in Northern Ireland that fell so flat? Ummm, how about … everything? There were the snarky words from Vladimir Putin, who expressed an almost Soviet-esque distance from Washington in his views about Syria. "Of course our opinions do not coincide," the Russian leader said bluntly. There was the coded warning from Chancellor Angela Merkel about spying on friends, and her and Obama's continuing frostiness over the issue of economic stimulus versus austerity. Above all, there was Obama's vague...

    A newlywed husband solicited sex from a prostitute while on his honeymoon with his new wife, authorities say. Mohammed Ahmed, 21, allegedly left his blushing bride in their luxury suite so he could meet up with the hooker he'd spotted online — but she turned out to be an undercover cop. Ahmed was busted — alongside 92 other alleged johns, pimps and hookers — as part of the Polk County Sheriff's Office sting.

  • No Fiscal honeymoon for president Obama [Congress Shouldn't Give Him One Either!]

    The newly re-elected US President Barack Obama will need to quickly secure agreement on avoiding the 'fiscal cliff' and raising the debt ceiling following Tuesday's elections, Fitch Ratings says. The economic policy challenge facing the President is to put in place a credible deficit-reduction plan necessary to underpin economic recovery and confidence in the full faith and credit of the US. Resolution of these fiscal policy choices would likely result in the US retaining its 'AAA' status from Fitch. As reflected in the Negative Outlook on the rating, failure to avoid the fiscal cliff and raise the debt ceiling in...

    TORONTO - It wasn’t the royal honey ‘moon’ Canadians were expecting. Prince William’s bride had a brief skirt-lifting experience when a prairie breeze hiked her dress almost to the waist. QMI Agency’s national photographer Andre Forget was following the royal couple at Calgary’s Airport when he captured Duchess Kate’s barely-seen Marilyn Monroe moment — far from any admiring crowd. It happened Thursday after the royal couple were flown in a military helicopter from Lake Louise, Alta., where they spent the previous night at a nearby lodge.

  • Wife files for divorce when new husband brings mother on honeymoon

    A WIFE filed for divorce just a month after her wedding because her husband insisted his mother came on the honeymoon. Beautician Marianna, 36, who can only be identified by her first name because of Italian privacy laws, thought she was free of her suffocating mother-in-law after a lavish church ceremony in Rome. But 39-year-old Stefano, a salesman, had secretly booked his mother into the same five-star Paris hotel. The first Marianna knew about it was when the woman turned up at the airport. The wife’s lawyer Giacinto Canzona said: “She wants a divorce because of her husband’s excessive emotional...

    My son is getting married the weekend of Valentine's Day. He and is wife to be have not yet decided on a honeymoon location. Travel agents are steering them into one of those all inclusive, security fenced in places in Aruba or Cancun etc. I suggested a Cruise, but my son, a plumber and avid golfer, I think would probably go nuts after a couple days without doing something physical. My brother suggest Maui. Staying in San Francisco a day and then flying to there. I say anywhere but Mexico. The drug wars, etc have spilled into places like

    One sign that Washington, D.C., had been home to Obama Mania was the number of independent retailers selling all sorts of Obama merchandise. Every street corner, it seemed, had Obama wares (or Obama wear) for sale. Now, however, most of the winter caps for sale are not emblazoned with the Obama logo. T-shirts depicting our president as a dunking Michael Jordan, a victorious Muhammad Ali, or saber-baring Luke Skywalker (yes, these shirts all existed) are nowhere to be found. This time last year, the Obama Store was teeming with customers. Ideally situated in the basement of Washington’s Union Station, the...

    Washington - As President Obama prepares for the highly anticipated speech he will deliver to the Muslim world from Cairo in early June, new polling from Arab countries suggests he has his work cut out for him. Only a small percentage of Arabs appear to have been won over by Barack Obama. There has been some slight improvement in US standing during the past year, based in part on the departure of President Bush and in part on Obama's policies, such as announcing a withdrawal from Iraq and a desire to shutter the Guantánamo detention facility. But one new poll...
  • Revealed: British swine flu victims are newlyweds who caught virus on Mexican honeymoon

    The two Britons suffering from swine flu are newlyweds who spent their honeymoon in Mexico, it was revealed today. Just weeks ago, Iain Askham, 27, and his new wife Dawn, 24, tied the knot and set off to Cancun for a dream holiday. But days after returning, they started feeling sick and have now found themselves at the heart of a possible global flu pandemic. The Askhams fell ill after returning from Mexico last Tuesday, where the outbreak of the H1N1 strain is believed to have first crossed from pigs to people. The couple, from Polmont, near Falkirk, flew home...

    PRESIDENT Barack Obama is a whirlwind, a political miracle, a man of action on multiple fronts. He fits several moulds without straining. The moulds are easily explained. As a successful politician, he strives to appeal to as many voters as he can. For independents, he is inclusive. He is digestible to more Republicans than any survey shows. For his own party’s faithful, he is all things to all of them. Mr. Obama’s gambit is harder than it appears. As is their tradition, Democrats are split in fractious wings and flying off in all directions at once. Left liberals demand nanny-state...

    A new President is traditionally given a honeymoon period by the majority of the American people. In normal times, the American people look to a new President with good wishes, and give him the benefit of the doubt when it comes to policy within the first three months or so of an administration. These, however, are not normal times, and I wonder just how far the patience of the American People will extend. Those who rave about Obama’s sky-high approval ratings are not looking at the historical record. Afer a little more than a month in office, Obama’s approval ratings...

    Drummer Glenn Fraser is set to go on his honeymoon next week, but not before a gut-wrenching decision on whether to go to Washington to play for Barack Obama. (JEFF HARPER / Staff) After much hand-wringing, a Halifax hand drummer is passing up the chance to play at a ball celebrating the inauguration of Barack Obama, because he can’t postpone a travel package that’s booked for the same day. Complicating things for Glenn Fraser, who plays the djembe in the Maritime Centre for African Dance trio, is that the trip to Cuba, beginning Sunday, is a honeymoon paid for by...
