    An American seized in Yemen in a sweep of suspected al-Qaida members had been a laborer at six U.S. nuclear power plants, and authorities are investigating whether he had access to sensitive information or materials that would be useful to terrorists.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokesman Neil Sheehan said Friday that investigations are under way into which areas Mobley entered. But he noted that areas containing nuclear fuel are tightly controlled, and that...

    Irish Times ^ | 01/30/2016 | Paul Cullen
    Family doctors have criticized the Government for seeking to "nationalize" general practice with plans to extend free GP care to all children. Speakers at the National Association of GPs conference called for a campaign of resistance to plans for a progressive extension of GP medical cards to all children. The Government plans to extend the scheme to children aged under 12 years later this year and to all children shortly after. Limerick GP Charlie Gavin said he signed the contract out of fear. "My fear was my practice would not continue, I had a letter from the Government saying they...

Just chalk outlines, no need for an arrest. You can't draw the prophet mohammed. It's Blasphemy the jihadies said. They crashed the event, Then hit the cement. Cuz in Texas they will shoot you dead. Free speech is an American thing We can draw, write, publish or sing. Outlines and a stain Are all that remain. Of Muzzies on a short Jihad fling.

    What happens when a former US Marine becomes a Franciscan friar and then goes on to found a monastery in the toughest district of Irelands toughest city? In 2007, Father Sylvester and a small group of American friars from the Bronx, N.Y., did just that when they arrived in Limerick, Ireland.

The urban district they live in, Moyross a sea of burned-down and boarded-up houses is always in the news for the wrong reasons: drugs, shootings,...
