    A Sioux Falls couple is preparing for a Christmas without their three children---who are now in the state's custody. Parents Molly and Mike say their children were taken from their home after taking their 2 month old son to the E-R for an unknown injury. They say similar stories can be found all over the U.S. "He wouldn't eat when he was crying we would see the cut on his tongue, so I called his doctor and he said we should take him to the ER. So we went to the ER," mother Molly Bowling said. The couple says they...

    youtube
    Hollywood (also known as, Hollywood: A Celebration of the American Silent Film) is a 1980 documentary series produced by Thames Television which explored the establishment and development of the Hollywood studios and its impact on 1920s culture. The series consists of thirteen fifty-minute episodes, with each episode dealing with a specific aspect of Hollywood history. The actor James Mason, an enthusiast of the period, supplied the narration; a lilting score was contributed by Carl Davis. Technical quality was an important aspect of the production. Silent films had often been screened on television from poor-quality copies running at an inaccurate speed,...

The New York Post reports on the e-mail's contents: "IN ADDITION: Absolutely NO enforcement action in the form of arrests and or summonses is to be taken unless absolutely necessary and an individual MUST be placed under arrest," the statement said."These are precautions that were taken in the 1970s when police officers were ambushed and executed on a regular basis," the statement added."We have, for the first time in a number of years, become a 'wartime' Police Department," the message concluded....

    Igor Baksht made a big Christmas purchase from a Colorado Walmart last Friday — a PlayStation 4 bundle for his 13-year-old niece. But as he was about to wrap the box, Baksht opened it to be certain “everything was inside, that all the contents were inside, all the games were inside,” he told KMGH-TV. Then he got a shock: “When I opened it, I said, ‘Oh my God.’” Instead of a PlayStation 4, the box contained two plastic bags full of rocks, Baksht said. The Stapleton Walmart where he’d made the purchase had closed, so Baksht tried a 24-hour one — but staff...

    CRANFORD, N.J. (WABC) -- Three New Jersey police officers sprang into action to save a choking dog. On Friday night, Cranford police received a frantic 9-1-1 call reporting a choking dog in the field adjacent to Walnut Avenue School. During a game of catch, Leo, a Great Dane/Shepherd mix weighing over 140 pounds, began choking and couldn't breathe when a tennis ball became lodged in his throat. Officer Robert Jordan encircled the dog with his arms and attempted to clear the dog's airway using abdominal thrusts. Officers John Rattigan and Brian Trotter arrived and assisted in the rescue.

    The reconstruction of Gaza after this summer’s 50-day war with Israel is moving at a glacial pace with only a tiny amount of the promised rebuilding materials so far delivered. Amid mounting criticism of the pace of the rebuilding effort, the Guardian has established that a controversial UN-designed mechanism to control the supply of building materials – and prevent them falling into the hands of the militant group Hamas – has been widely corrupted.

    Washington Post ^ | Decemeber, 23 1024 | Sandhya Somashekhar and Wesley Lowery
    Veteran civil rights leader Al Sharpton, who has tried to play the statesman during heated protests over police shootings, now faces accusations of incitement after the killings last weekend of two officers in New York City. The Rev. Sharpton has worked over the years to shed his reputation as a firebrand, and in recent months, he had provoked the ire of younger protesters who favor a more confrontational approach. Sharpton, for instance, angered some young activists by rebuffing them when they unexpectedly asked to speak at a march his nonprofit group organized in Washington. But after the deaths of the...

After finally figuring out how to get the cover off (I'm an older lady living with 2 cats), I discovered the batteries ....dated 2011...were moderately corroded. It takes two batteries and of that size I had only one new one. I finally robbed one out of the wireless computer mice...

Only 1.9 million signed up on their own, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell said Tuesday.

    House Speaker John Boehner called it, "Another in a long line of mindless concessions." He was referring to Obama's announcement that we would resume diplomatic relations with Cuba, not his own mindless concession to the president by fully funding Obamnesty. Just weeks ago, Boehner promised to fight Obama's immigration power-grab "tooth and nail." He neglected to specify whose tooth and whose nail. The $1 trillion CRomnibus bill includes full-funding of Obama's unconstitutional amnesty – $948 million for Homeland Security, an extra $80-million to HHS for the unaccompanied drug-dealers, gang-bangers and cheap labor, and $260 million to the State Department to...

    In a decision issued this morning, the U.S. Supreme Court sided with the police in a case arising from an officer’s “mistake of law.” At issue in Heien v. North Carolina was a 2009 traffic stop for a single busted brake light that led to the discovery of illegal drugs inside the vehicle. According to state law at the time, however, motor vehicles were required only to have “a stop lamp,” meaning that the officer did not have a lawful reason for the initial traffic stop because it was not a crime to drive around with a single busted brake...
