    Fox host Bill O'Reilly loses custody of children amid abuse allegations Published time: 1 Mar, 2016 Fox News Channel host Bill O'Reilly lost custody of his teenage children over allegations of domestic abuse by his ex-wife. The New York Appellate Division unanimously ruled that O'Reilly's 13- and 17-year-old children should live full time with their mother, Maureen McPhilmy, who was married to the conservative commentator for 15 years. A 1,400 word opinion using anonymous names was issued by the court last week, but the media only figured out who it was this week. The ruling states it was the "clearly...

    I would like to request your Prayers and thoughts for myself, and my family for the very unexpected passing of my wife. Many of you have seen me refer to her as Mrs. Rikkir, but her name was Patsy. She was 55, and mother to one daughter, and Mee Maw to three grandsons. She was a KY farm girl, who took a stupid NC city boy, and, 29 years ago, pulled him from a self destructive path, and instead gave him a path of love and responsibility. She was universally loved by almost all who met her. I have fielded...

    My "Aha Moment" happened because of a package of hamburger meat. I asked my husband to stop by the store to pick up a few things for dinner, and when he got home, he plopped the bag on the counter. I started pulling things out of the bag, and realized he'd gotten the 70/30 hamburger meat - which means it's 70% lean and 30% fat. Read more at

    Jilted husband Kevin Cotter has turned the heartbreak of his divorce into a nice little profit by publishing a book full of ingenious ways to use his ex-wife's wedding dress. Kevin, 41, was crushed when his wife of 12 years walked out in 2009, taking all her possessions except the white silk gown. When he asked her to take the dress back, she refused and told Kevin to 'do what the f*** he liked with it'. So he did - and for the last four years he has come up with a series brilliant ideas and filled a book with...

    California is going beyond being one of the 19 states currently allowing same-sex "marriage" by revolutionizing the sacred institution even further with Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) signing of Senate Bill 1306, which eradicates from state laws references to "husband and wife." Progressive media outlets are heralding this change as necessary and overdo. "California's same-sex couples may now be pronounced spouse and spouse after Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed a bill [last] Monday eliminating outdated 'husband and wife' references from state laws," Huffington Post reported. "Senate Bill 1306 was introduced by state Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) to eliminate confusion and...

    Last year, Susan Patton, a Princeton grad and the mother of two sons at the elite college, outraged feminists when she wrote an open letter to the Daily Princetonian telling female students to find a husband on campus before they graduate. The red alert — which argued that these Ivy League college girls “would never again be surrounded by this concentration of men who would be worthy of you” — went viral with more than 100 million hits. ... even in the dog-eat-dog dating jungle that is New York, there is hope for single career women between the ages of...

    It's a secret agent's dream: one single piece of software that lets you into all of a 'target's communications, their movements and their personal notes. But this isn't some piece of top-secret NSA infrastructure. mSpy is a smartphone app that works on Android, Apple, Blackberry and Nokia phones - offering a staggering array of surveillance options. The app - which works on a subscription basis starting at £24.99 a month - is described as being able to 'run undetected on your child's or employee's cell phone and provide all of the necessary features for complete monitoring.'

    Advice for the Young Rhodie by John deWitt One of the more plaintive and persuasive comments to date on NRD came from reader “Dan III”, responding to my post a while ago on asset allocation in Obama’s America. In so many words, Dan III suggested that a post more responsive to the average American’s circumstances would be more useful than the one I had written.More than 90% of the comments I’ve moderated on NRD have been very welcome and I think about all of them – thank you, readers. Since Dan III’s comment, I’ve been thinking about what advice I’d give...

    Admittedly, the Egyptian uprising, the nullification of Obamacare and the ongoing ramifications of "Snowpocolypse 2011" could render the controversy about an MTV original program insignificant by comparison. After all, MTV is only out to destroy an entire generation. No big deal. Every adult - not just parents - should take the time to learn about the MTV show "Skins," a new "teen drama" that the Parents Television Council (PTC) has deemed "the most dangerous show on TV." Be careful when you go hunting for information about "Skins" lest your spouse conclude you've developed an interest in child pornography. The publicity...

    NEW YORK (AP) - Your sweetheart or your pet. Who would you choose to dump if one had to go? Most current pet owners said they would hold on to their spouse or significant other (84 percent), but a sizable 14 percent picked their pet, according to an poll. Put Sally Roland, 53, of Omaha, Neb., down in the dog-first column. "I'm divorced, so that might explain it," she joked. The unmarried, like Roland, are more apt to choose their pet over their mate—25 percent among unmarried pet owners versus 8 percent among the married. Count Fidel Martinez, 30,...

  • France mulls 'psychological violence' ban

    If you insult your wife or husband repeatedly, you could soon find yourself in court if you live in France. The charge? Psychological violence. That's what the new offence will be called if a bill backed by the government is passed by parliament. Once considered a purely private domain, rows between married or cohabiting couples could now prompt intervention from the state. The French government wants to take the controversial step of introducing a new law banning "psychological violence" between married couples or partners living together. But there are questions about how such an offence could be proved.

The measure awaits President Obama's signature. By Anna Gorman October 21, 2009 Congress passed a bill Tuesday that would make widows and widowers of U.S. citizens eligible for green cards even if their spouses died before their applications were approved. The measure, part of the more than $40-billion Homeland Security appropriations bill, ends the "widow penalty," which required couples to be married for two years before the surviving spouse would be eligible...
