    Ryan Murphy is making TV history with his latest FX drama Pose, assembling the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles ever for a scripted series. The five transgender actors were cast after a six-month nationwide search led by casting director Alexa Fogel. They are MJ Rodriguez, Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Hailie Sahar, and Angelica Ross. All will be playing transgender characters. Also cast in the series are Ryan Jamaal Swain, Billy Porter and Dyllon Burnside. Set in the 1980s, Pose looks at the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York: the rise of...

    He refused to be knocked out, even in death. The family of a Puerto Rican boxer — who was shot to death last week — honored his dying wish on Friday by propping up his corpse in the corner of a fake boxing ring to memorialize his career. Like an ashen wax figure, Christopher Rivera’s pale, embalmed body was positioned in the corner of the ring decked out in boxing gloves, a hoodie, shades and sneakers.

    Bernard Shaw specifically points to Pygmalion as didactic.(In the preface) Which means instructive or teaching. The question is, what is he teaching, and to whom? On the one hand, there's the obvious answer that he is teaching "the masses" about how selfish and superficial that the upper classes are.(which isn't always true) But on the other hand, Bernard Shaw is very popular amongst today's elites. What did he teach them with this? Here are some highlights. From act 1: THE NOTE TAKER. You see this creature with her kerbstone English: the English that will keep her in the gutter to...

    WASHINGTON – Former prime minister Tony Blair warned on Sunday that the roots of radical Islam were far deeper than we think and said Al-Qaeda would have killed 300,000 on September 11, 2001 if they could. "This is actually more like the phenomenon of revolutionary communism," Blair said in an interview with ABC News, commenting on the reach of Islamic extremism. "It's the religious or cultural equivalent of it, and its roots are deep, its tentacles are long, and its narrative about Islam stretches far further than we think into even parts of mainstream opinion who abhor the extremism, but...

    Non-Muslims are barred from entering the cities of Mecca and Medina — not merely barred from building synagogues or churches, but barred, period, because their infidel feet are deemed unfit to touch the ground. This is not an al-Qaeda principle. Nor is it an “Islamist” principle. It is Islam, pure and simple.

    WASHINGTON, March 14, 2006 – Funding and public opinion are two major challenges the United States faces in fighting the global war on terrorism, a top defense official said here yesterday. One of the biggest challenges may be budgetary, said Thomas W. O'Connell, assistant secretary of defense for special operations and low-intensity conflict. "Resources are restrained," he said at the 17th Annual National Defense Industrial Association Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict Symposium and Exhibition. "I guarantee that if we had unlimited resources we'd be able to make a heck of a lot more progress than we're making now." Special operations...

    WASHINGTON, March 10, 2006 – The proliferation of ballistic missile technology threatens the security of the United States, the director of the Missile Defense Agency said here yesterday. Testifying before the House Armed Services Committee, Air Force Lt. Gen. Henry A. Obering III said there were about 80 foreign ballistic missile launches in 2005 and that North Korea and Iran are steadily advancing in their missile capabilities. "North Korea and Iran have not relented in their pursuit of longer-range ballistic missiles," Obering said. "Our current and near-term missile defense fielding activities are a direct response to these dangers." In addition,...

    (March 2) -- Special Agent Frank Marwood was showing a visitor the half-mile long, 80-foot deep smuggler's tunnel his agents discovered beneath the U.S.-Mexican border at Otay Mesa when his cellphone interrupted. An agent was reporting in with a startling new find: another tunnel, this one shorter and more crudely built, but big enough to provide yet another subterranean port of entry into the USA. These are busy days for the men and women who guard the nation's border - particularly for the team of federal agents charged with rooting out border tunnels.

    Beverly Moody poses seductively on a bed, wearing an old-fashioned slip over vintage bra and panties, a vintage telephone in hand. With the cord wrapped provocatively around her legs, the 27-year-old hairdresser smiles teasingly as photographer Lori Mann snaps away at the Pink Kitty Studios in Eagle Rock, a studio that specializes in turning out pinups like those that kept G.I. morale high in World War II. Moody's photos are meant for only one person - her boyfriend, a Navy SEAL stationed in Afghanistan. "This is our wartime," she explains. "Our generation, we're the young ones who have our husbands...

    Provisional ballots could pose Election Day problems COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Provisional ballots could be the hanging chads of the 2004 presidential election, say critics of Ohio's guidelines for handling those votes. Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell recently issued a directive to county election officials saying they are allowed to count provisional ballots only from voters who go to the correct polling location for their home address. Blackwell has ordered that if residents go to the wrong precinct, poll workers must find their correct precinct and tell them where to go, Blackwell's spokesman Carlo LoParo said. They also may cast provisional...

The study found that previously stable coronary patients experienced coronary events, including unstable angina and myocardial infarction (heart attack), within one week of aspirin withdrawal.

    Sept. 9— It was a bizarre and twisted plan to abduct and blackmail a judge in Westchester County, New York. Mount Vernon police say a man cooked up an elaborate plot that involved lots of firepower and a 10-year-old child. Police say that Bassel Conn, a 25-year-old Mount Vernon resident, cooked up a scheme with others to kidnap a superior court judge from Connecticut and photograph the judge in bed with a 10-year-old girl. Then, using the photographs, they would blackmail the judge into releasing two men from prison, one of whom is a convicted murderer. Cops say Conn had...
