    Misunderstanding can result from the mechanical reproduction of previously published ideas either because those ideas are taken out of context or because they are based on factual errors. The way authors sort and select data, without verifying the source or checking the facts, leads to distorted interpretations. This problem must be anticipated in Bible interpretation where it is common to rely on what the rabbis have written. As the Bible is viewed as a Jewish religious text, it is natural to seek rabbinic guidance. Christians tend to read the Old Testament through rabbinic sources. Many pastors use commentaries written by...

    Don't let their sweet smiles fool you; this is a fearsome foursome of trained killers. This cheery selfie shows the first group of women to complete the Marine Corps' infantry combat training, a grueling 59-day course that preps Marines for war. Fifteen women began the training at Camp Lejeune, N.C., on Sept. 24, but only Harlee (Rambo) Bradford, who snapped the pic, and her grinning crew made it through, CNN reported.

    A Harvard-bound New Jersey teenager who successfully sued her high school because she wanted to be the sole valedictorian at graduation has been dumped by the Ivy League university, apparently for plagiarism.

According to Harvard admission rules, a student’s acceptance can be revoked “if you engage in behavior” that brings into question your honesty, maturity, or moral character.” Questions were raised about Hornstein’s suitability when she was caught plagiarizing extensively from materials published...

Senator John Kerry The Massachusetts senator, who announced that he would seek the Democratic nomination late last year, has decided he will be campaigning in California at the weekend after it emerged that his ancestors were not Irish, but Austrian.

    (New York, 1-Aug SFTRNN) United Nations Sec. General Koffi Annan announced this evening that Iraqi foreign minister Tariq Azziz has accepted revised proposals for the return of U.N. weapon inspection teams to verify Iraqi claims that the country no longer has weapons of mass destruction and has no ongoing ability to research or manufacture them. Responding to Iraqi concerns over the composition of the team and possible inspection activity that might unfairly undermine the countries sovereignity and security rights, Annan had modified original proposals a number of times until final agreement was reached today. Among the key requirements Iraq demanded...
