  • Sources: Amazon Eyes Downtown Raleigh for HQ2; Apple deal ‘Imminent’

    RALEIGH – Amazon is still considering the Triangle for its huge HQ2 project, and downtown Raleigh is where the ecommerce giant is most likely to build what would be a massive complex if North Carolina’s capital is the winner, according to sources. Several of the same sources also note that an announcement of Apple’s selection for a new campus is “imminent.” North Carolina has been aggressively pursuing both economic development projects which promise billions of dollars in investments and as many as 60,000 jobs. Winning the Apple project does not preclude the Triangle from being selected by Amazon, sources say....

    RUSH: Yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, we spent some time discussing cultural rot and how it’s happening in education. We had a very lengthy story yesterday about a woman who attended a convention of college administrators. She was 40 years old and she was astounded at what she was seeing and hearing at this convention. She always thought that the primary method of liberal indoctrination of young people happened in the classroom, until she went to this convention, then she found out all of the administrative people are even sicker, like the guidance counselors and course advisers and so forth. The...

    In the stew of false information and conspiracy theories that swirls online, perhaps no idea is as flummoxing as the belief in a flat Earth. Flat-Earthers believe that the Earth is a flat disc ringed by an ice wall. All those elegant models of a round Earth that perfectly explain seasons, eclipses, sunrises and sunsets? Lies and cover-ups, they say. Pictures of the round Earth from space? Government conspiracies. The fact that you can see ships disappearing hull-first over the curve of the horizon with your own eyes? Well, flat-Earthers claim to see something different. It's been a big publicity...

    Emma Akpan is a faith leader at her North Carolina African Methodist Episcopal Church. She also volunteers for Planned Parenthood. Akpan wrote a column for Bustle this week trying to justify her abortion advocacy with her Christian faith by claiming that she wants to end violence against women. Akpan described herself a minister at her church. “I am a clinic greeter because of my faith, which teaches me how important it is to provide care for my community,” the Raleigh, North Carolina, woman wrote. “For me, that means ensuring that women have safe access to their health care facilities.” Akpan,...

    The Elizabeth City Daily Advance ^ | October 1, 2017 | Jon Hawley
    North Carolinians agreed to borrow $2 billion last year to support higher education and infrastructure. Should they borrow a similar amount to more quickly build Interstate 87 and other important roads? Some local officials say yes. For more than a year, Interstate 87 has been a burning issue for elected officials in Pasquotank and surrounding counties. Creating that road from Raleigh to the Virginia state line would cost more than $1.3 billion, based on early estimates, and it could take decades to develop. Just widening U.S. Highway 17 to interstate standards from northern Pasquotank through Camden may cost almost $187...

    SANFORD - A group of local Chinese-Americans took their support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to new heights on Saturday. The results were visible across much of the Triangle. An ad hoc group of local Chinese-Americans who are linked via a messaging app called WeChat – developed by Chinese company Tencent – pooled their resources to hire a single-engine plane towing a banner that proclaimed: “NC Chinese Americans for Trump.” The 180-horsepower Aviat Husky A-1B’s scheduled four-hour flight path started at the Raleigh Executive Airport in Sanford and included a flyby of Carter-Finley Stadium prior to the game between...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Shoppers in Raleigh described chaos Saturday afternoon after at least one gunshot rang out in the crowded Crabtree Valley Mall. Hours after the report of the shots, police had yet to identify a shooter, find anyone with gunshot wounds or make any arrests. Elisabeth Hammond was in the food court when she heard shots nearby. "I'm a country girl, I know what gunfire sounds like," she said. "I felt it in my chest."...

The victim tried fighting back against the suspects, but says he was outnumbered. The attack happened last weekend as he left on bar and was walking down Davie Street near Chavis Way with two friends. He asked to remain anonymous. "I got hit so hard I saw stars. It's just like a flash, you can't think straight for a bit," the victim said. He was knocked out cold at one point. The victim says four or five people...

    Raleigh, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory says the General Assembly should reverse a portion of the recently passed House Bill 2 but leave in place provisions that deal with locker room and restroom usage. Specifically, the governor called on lawmakers to reverse a part of the law, known as the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, which prevents North Carolina workers who believe they've been wrongfully fired due to sex, age, race or gender from suing in state court. "I will immediately seek legislation in the upcoming short session to reinstate the right to sue for discrimination in North Carolina...

The billboards have been set up in Colorado Springs and in Raleigh, North Carolina. In Colorado Springs, there's one located near Fountain at Exit 128 and another near a Stratmoor Hills neighborhood. "We want people to know that going to church has absolutely nothing to do with being a good person, " said David Silverman, president of American Atheists.

    Around the world, Christians are targeted for persecution and martyrdom, something that is developing even in the United States. But even as church leaders increasingly are on guard against threats of murderous violence, experts warn they may be ignoring a far more common threat – sexual assault against congregants. “Sexual assaults taking place on church property is an epidemic in our nation,” Carl Gallups told WND. “The reasons for it are numerous (and sometimes complex), but the main problem is that most churches have an abysmal lack of adequate security measures. While many churches are concerned about the growing trend...
