    Red Commemoration FOR THE SECOND TIME in July a constellation of seven stars shines in the heavens. More fortunate than Felicitas, Symphorosa preceded into the arena the Seven Sons she was offering to God. From the throne where he was already reigning crowned with the martyr’s diadem, Getulius, the tribune, father of this illustrious family, applauded the combat whereby his race earned a far greater nobility than that of the patrician blood, and gave to Rome a grander glory than was ever dreamed of by her heroes and poets. The Emperor Adrian, corrupt yet brilliant, skeptical yet superstitious like...

    FRESNO, Calif. -- Crystal clear surveillance video shows how a group of young men made off with a small fortune worth of Apple products in Fresno. The four only needed mere seconds to steal 26 items totaling $27,000 Saturday morning at the store inside Fashion Fair Mall. Lt. Mark Hudson of the Fresno Police Department says the group took, "Various iPhones, the iPhone 6, iPhone 7 and 8, and even the new iPhone X was taken in this grand theft."

    I am a feminist. My husband is a feminist...I’m raising my son to be a feminist because he will be a better person for it. Instilling the value of gender equality from birth means that he will support his twin sister, his friends, and his daughters should he ever have them. Raising my son a feminist means he will be better equipped to operate in a world where women are increasingly and rightfully in positions of power, and he will relish the benefits that brings to everyone.
  • Arizona to investigate 'Doggie Disneyland' where 20 dogs died

    Authorities are investigating the deaths of 20 dogs at Green Acre Kennel, in Gilbert, Arizona. The place had billed itself as a "Doggie Disneyland" promising plenty of land for dogs to run free with no cages. To Ryan Ingraham and his wife, it sounded like a great place to board their two black Labradors while they took a vacation. Ingraham had contacted MaLeisa and Todd Hughes, owners of the business, two months ago. Then about a week ago, he decided to take the dogs to the Hughes' house for a trial run.

    In a recent Iowa speech, Obama said, “I want women to control their own health choices, just like I want my daughters to have the same economic opportunities as my sons.” My sons! Both the video of the speech and the transcript distributed by the White House unequivocally documented his “mistake.” And he was using a teleprompter but I understand he uses the teleprompter when he tells Michelle “Good morning.” He made the same “mistake” in a New York speech a few days later! Does he not know that he has two daughters? But then who knows, maybe he does...

    President Obama’s campaign speech defending his healthcare policy on the grounds that “my daughters should have the same economic opportunities as my sons” has puzzled observers. Only two daughters (Malia and Sasha) have been explicitly acknowledged by the President. Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that while “it is obvious that the President and First Lady have only the two daughters currently living with them in the White House, critics shouldn’t be jumping to the conclusion that he misspoke. Statistics show that the average urban Black male fathers 3.2 children out-of-wedlock. Earlier in his life, the President was a member of...

    Breaking news! President Obama, speaking last night in Chicago at a fundraiser at a private home, unloaded this bombshell: Obama, according to the White House transcript, talked about “The first bill I signed — a bill that said that we’re going to have equal pay for equal work because I want my daughters treated the same way as my sons.”

    Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's youngest son has been killed by Nato strikes in Libya, according to reports. Rebel forces have said the Libyan leader's son Khamis was among more than 30 people dead following an air strike on an operation centre in the western town of Zlitan. Spokesman for revolutionary militia groups Mohammed Zawawi told AFP that spies operating among Gaddafi's ranks had confirmed the death. "Overnight there was an aircraft attack by Nato on the Gaddafi operations room in Zlitan and there are around 32 Gaddafi troops killed - one of them is Khamis," he said. It is the second...

    “Adopted as Sons” (Ephesians 1:3-14)It is a terrible thing to be rootless, family-less, fatherless, not having a father. I can tell you from personal experience. My father died when I was one year old, and I can tell you that growing up without a father was no fun. All the other kids had dads; why didn’t I? There was this big gap in my life. This state of fatherlessness always weighed on my mind, and I’m pretty sure it held me back in life. On the other hand, one of the greatest joys I’ve had in life is being a...

    "Whenever I’m watching a movie that hearkens back to a sepia tinted yesteryear, it isn’t the simpler times I long for so much as a return to the distant days when a man rose alongside the sunrise and was expected to give the daylight his best. Clothes were sharper, adolescence shorter, and the word man still deserving of the first spot in the word manners. Now it seems as if there is something *missing, something stripped from today’s men, besides their buttons and blazers . . ." ~ Sean Platt

    If you ever ran into Nokesville dad Thomas S. Vander Woude, chances are you would also see his son Joseph. Whether Vander Woude was volunteering at church, coaching basketball or working on his farm, Joseph was often right there with him, pitching in with a smile, friends and neighbors said yesterday. When Joseph, 20, who has Down syndrome, fell into a septic tank Monday in his back yard, Vander Woude jumped in after him. He saved him. And he died where he spent so much time living: at his son's side.

    Mr. McCain, now the presumptive Republican nominee, has staked out his candidacy on the promise that American troops can bring stability to Iraq. What he almost never says is that one of them is his own son, who spent seven months patrolling Anbar Province and learned of his father's New Hampshire victory in January while he was digging a stuck military vehicle out of the mud.

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2007 – Few U.S. troops have the opportunity to deploy with their loved ones, but soldiers of 325th Combat Support Hospital, a unit from Independence, Mo., currently at Al Asad Air Base, Iraq, have two such family relationships within their unit. Maj. David Clark and his son, Sgt. Michael Clark, both natives of Manchester, Conn., deployed to Iraq together with the 325th CSH. The Clark family has a long tradition of military service stretching over three generations. This deployment will mark their second tour together, the first being a 10-month deployment to Kuwait with the 405th...

    Rich mothers 'have more sons' By Roger Highfield, Science Editor Last Updated: 12:01am BST 08/08/2007 Rich, married and well-educated women tend to have more sons while those who are unhealthy and poorer tend to have more daughters, according to a study. Well-off women produce more sons Researchers studied 50 million people and found that mothers in 'good condition’ - those who were married, better educated and younger - bore more sons than mothers in 'poor condition’. The reason, simply put, is that women are tougher than men so according to evolutionary theory women living in poorer communities are predisposed to...
