    A British student who was sexually assaulted by a gang in New York and then ignored by police when she begged for help has received £80,000 in compensation. The 22-year-old accepted the out-of-court settlement even though she could have received millions if she had taken the case to a jury. The woman was attacked near the gates of Central Park by about 15 men after the Puerto Rican Day Parade in June 2000. She was among dozens of women who were attacked by roving gangs during the day, suffering the worst assault. Many of the victims were doused with water,...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio: US police interrogated three brothers on Wednesday as grim details began to emerge about how three young Ohio women were kidnapped and held captive for 10 years in an unremarkable city home. Cleveland police chief Michael McGrath said he expected the trio, a group of men in their fifties, to be charged later in the day, after a crime that left many wondering how it could have gone undetected for so long. "We have confirmation they were bound and there were chains and ropes in the hall," McGrath told NBC television's Today Show, near the home in a...

    New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is holding a terrorism-related press conference tonight at 7:30 pm. NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly and District Attorney Cy Vance will also be in attendance. This is a late breaking addition to Bloomberg's schedule — and the presence of Vance indicates there may have been some sort of arrest. Neither the Mayor's Office nor the NYPD are releasing any information prior to the press conference.

    Politics: President Obama hit a new low in using a recess appointment to name Maria del Carmen Aponte as U.S. envoy to El Salvador. The radical has consorted with Cuban spies but will be taking no questions. Dismissing three congressional holds on Aponte's ambassadorial confirmation as "playing politics," Obama used his vacation to slip Aponte through to represent the U.S. to the strategic Central American country, without a vote in Congress. That gives Aponte, a campaign contributor aligned to the immigration lobby, access to top-secret information as a political reward. But Aponte's past is one big red flag. From 1982...

    In a time of massive layoffs, there are some jobs that nobody in Puerto Rico wants. Puerto Rico has the highest unemployment in the U.S., at 17 percent, and that number will go higher if the government carries out plans to lay off 30,000 employees. At the same time, coffee plantations are desperate for workers. When the governor recently suggested people pick coffee, many considered it an insult. The coffee plantations are struggling to get enough workers, even after throwing in free transportation and meals. Plantation owners are now using convict labor, with buses taking the prisoners to the fields...

    Milagros Garcia is an alleged Alien and Human inter-species hybrid. The blood DNA from this Puerto Rican woman has yielded analyses so unusual and interesting that the physician involved is now interested in meeting the subject for further study. The DNA is possible in humans but is very rare. Ms. Garcia claims that she is the offspring of an alien encounter. The Doctor is not interested in the UFO/ alien phenomena he wants answers as to why her DNA has such rare qualities. A Case similar to this is being investigated in New Paris Ohio. A woman there has exceptional...
