    Call it “mansplaining,” “bropropriating,” or “Kanye at the VMAs,” women are familiar with being interrupted by men when they speak. So when Donald Trump repeatedly interrupted Hillary Clinton at Monday night’s debate — 51 times, according to Vox — it hit home for much of the audience. Women have been interrupted by men in professional settings for decades. Whether it’s Kanye West cutting off Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards or an executive halted midsentence by her peer in a corporate meeting, studies have found that men are more likely to block women from talking entirely, to correct...

    ESPN ^ | September 27, 2016
    American tennis player Serena Williams took to Facebook on Tuesday to say she "won't be silent" about race relations and tension with police. Williams, 35, said she had the moment of reflection while riding with her 18-year-old nephew. She wrote that she saw a cop on the side of the road and checked to make sure her nephew was driving at the speed limit, prompting her to think about the case of Philando Castile, who was shot after being pulled over in Minnesota.

    FOX ^ | 9-26-2016 | Jillian Melchior
    A University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student had a serious complaint for his campus’ official “Hate Response Team”: he was “very upset” by a Harry Potter mural in a college dorm. The mural, in the Laux Residence Hall, depicts Neville Longbottom, a character from the Harry Potter films. The nerdy Neville was played by actor Matthew Lewis, who blossomed into a notable hunk post-puberty. The mural shows him as both a geeky boy and an attractive young man — transformed, according to the mural’s caption, by a stay at the Laux Residence Hall itself. The depiction of this metamorphosis “represents our...

    ROSEBURG, Ore. — Chris Mintz finished his six-minute deployment broken yet unbowed. He had been shot five times and was bleeding out, thousands of miles from the nearest battlefield. Being wounded was a real possibility when Mintz enlisted as an Army infantryman, but taking fire in rural Oregon wasn’t quite what he pictured. He joined in 2004, between two vicious battles in Fallujah while an insurgency simmered in Afghanistan. He could have gone into water purification or finance or any number of jobs. But choosing combat arms in wartime takes a certain kind of soldier with a certain something to...

The Tyler School of Art at Temple University took to their Twitter account to brag about the art installation, which is located on a central quad at the Philadelphia-based institution. Although the project’s meaning remains unclear, it hasn’t stopped community members and internet commentators from speculating about the artist’s motivation.

At about 7:30 p.m., Neil Frias and Jeff White, both visiting from New York for the annual fair, billed as the "world's largest leather event," were at a McDonald's restaurant near Golden Gate Avenue and Fillmore Street. They were ordering food when two suspects rushed them, uttering homophobic slurs. Frias told the San Francisco Chronicle that one of the men told them...

In that time, the group has gone from obscurity, mocked by President Barack Obama as a terrorist “JV team,” to the world’s most brutal terrorist network, not only responsible for thousands of deaths in the Middle East but also linked to hundreds more in dozens of terrorist plots in the West.

While serving in Congress, Byrd set the record for longest filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate with a 14-hour filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    New York City mayor Bill de Blasio announced a couple of days after U.S. citizen and Afghani immigrant Ahmad Khan Rahami’s terrorist attack had injured 29 in his city that this was the time to bring in more Muslim immigrants. The timing of the Mayor’s immigration comment, which had a forced, agenda-driven quality was odd. Many New Yorkers certainly wished for a brief period of reflection, at least, before plunging willy-nilly back into the quixotic pursuit of the multicultural dream. The Mayor had just met with his London political and ideological counterpart, Sadiq Khan, who’d stated that terrorism was part...

    Abort, Euthanize, or Get Out of Medicine Bioethics discourse aims to change the practice of medicine and the thrust of public policy — usually not for the better. As I have been noting, the field is increasingly targeting the right of doctors to refuse to perform an abortion, euthanize patients, and perform other procedures or issue prescriptions that violate their religious beliefs.A bit ago, I discussed a “consensus statement” on this issue in Practical Ethics, published by Oxford. Now, two internationally influential bioethicists — Jualian Savulescu and Udo Schuklenk — join forces to advocate that society legally coerce doctors to kill. First, they deconstruct medical...

George Soros, a U.S. billionaire and one of the richest people in the world, has been secretly pumping funds into the push to legalise abortion in Ireland. In a private memo, clearly never intended to be seen by the Irish people, Soros’ foundation takes aim at Irish laws protecting unborn babies, and commits to funding three groups who will work ‘collectively’ to legalise abortion – Amnesty Ireland, the Abortion Rights Campaign, and the IFPA. The revelations are hugely embarrassing for abortion campaigners. Under pressure...

    When the Con Artist Acts Generous How many times tax relief has been promised, what came of it and how Frauke Petry invited attack In 2005, with little effort and a slight head-start, Merkel clambered onto the chancellor’s throne ahead of Schröder. She also got votes out of gratitude for her agreement to noticeably lower taxes. The VAT would rise a compensatory two points, so that the state would not have to accumulate more debt. The SPD rejected that completely. In the end, they came to an agreement — instead of the VAT rising not at all (SPD) or by...

    The rooms where ruddy-faced Chinese men and women once assembled to pray in Hebrew and Mandarin are silent. Signs and exhibits that celebrated centuries of Jewish life have disappeared. An ancient well, believed to be the last visible remnant of a long-demolished synagogue, was recently buried under concrete and a pile of earth.. After locking down Buddhist monasteries in Tibet and tearing down church crosses in eastern China, President Xi Jinping’s campaign against unapproved religion and foreign influence has turned to an unlikely adversary: a small group of Jews whose ancestors settled in this now faded imperial city near the...

In the chilling advertisement, that looks like it's straight a from dystopian Science Fiction movie, Swedish citizens are told to accept the "irreversible Change" of their country and are prompted to integrate into "The New Country" shaped by unrestricted mass immigration from 3rd world countries. The opening scene says it all: "There is no turning Back - Sweden will never...

    From one 'Happy Deplorable' to all American citizens, Sometimes, it seems that little nuggets of truths are found in the most obscure writings in existence, from current publications, ancient writ, and stuff that is just plain weird, in someone's eyes. I present to you such a raw nugget. I quote: "A nation must become aware of its own character before it can be said to exist. From that knowledge it must divine its destiny. It must then consider the political conditions of the world, how other countries may help it or hinder it. It must then destroy in itself any...

    In 2004, when the comedian Dave Chappelle performed at UNO Lakefront Arena, he asked a white guy sitting in the audience to imagine that he and Chappelle could take a time machine back to colonial Virginia. He asked him to imagine them stepping out onto a road just as George Washington was approaching. "You might say, 'Look, Dave, there's George Washington, the father of our country. Let's go say hi.' And I'd say, "Run! It's George Washington!'"There might not be a better explanation for why some black Americans look askance at white Americans' heroes. How much should it matter to...
