    The Oklahoma Supreme Court has rejected a last ditch attempt by the state to keep a Ten Commandments monument next to the Oklahoma Capitol. The court ordered it removed, and on Monday denied a request from the state to reconsider that order. The monument must be removed because it violates a section of the Oklahoma Constitution prohibiting state property from being used to further religions, the court said. "Obviously we're pleased with the decision," said Brady Henderson, legal director for ACLU Oklahoma. "The whole case is controversial, but something that is undeniable is that the court is getting this right....

They are used virtually everywhere, from financial institutions to dating sites. But some algorithms shape and control our world more than others — and these ten are the most significant.Just a quick refresher before we get started. Though there's no formal definition, computer scientists describe algorithms as a set of rules that define a sequence of operations. They're a series of instructions that tell a computer how it's supposed to solve a problem or achieve a certain...

    you’ve ever had the misfortune to watch MSNBC or Fox News, you’re probably aware that politics causes people to say some pretty dumb things.

It’s true: Partisan people will always ignore evidence if it goes directly against their beliefs, no matter how difficult the mental gymnastics involved. Don’t believe me? Here are 10 basic facts guaranteed to send die-hard liberals and GOP stalwarts into a froth of irrationality.

    A 10-year-old Maine girl has been charged with killing an infant entrusted to her mother's care to babysit for the night - the youngest person to be hit with a manslaughter rap in the state in at least 25 years. Three-month-old Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway of Clinton died on July 8, and the Maine State Police declared the death a homicide on Wednesday. A day later, authorities reportedly charged the 10-year-old daughter of her babysitter with manslaughter. Nicole Greenaway, the infant’s mother, told The Bangor Daily News a toxicology report stated a medication was found in the infant’s system that was the...

    Chief PLO negotiator says Palestinian missions abroad are a step closer toward becoming embassies of an "occupied state with defined borders." Some 10 EU countries are scheduled to upgrade the status of Palestinian representative offices in their capitals in the near future, Chief PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat declared on Sunday. The move means that Palestinian missions would move a step closer toward becoming embassies whose workers enjoy full diplomatic immunity. Erekat said that the move follows Norway’s recent decision to upgrade the status of the Palestinian representative office. Moreover, the move comes in wake of three South American countries to...

    A copy of the commandments is back on the wall of a Kentucky courthouse after the federal court ruled late last week that the display does not violate the U.S. Constitution. After a decade of court battles with the American Civil Liberties Union and others, advocates of religious expression seem to be on a winning streak.

  • Top Ten Obama Outrages of 2009 (Call for Nominations)

    It occurs to me that if the top Obama Outrages of 2009 are not gathered together and documented in one place, they will as if they had not occurred at all. Outrages that should make the list, I think, should be major demonstrations of stupidity, deceit, treason, or ineptitude (or combinations thereof). I admit to not even being able to start a list because these events, unlike say arguably misspelling potato, are so quickly erased from the public consciousness. Several things that I might nominate include giving an iPod as a gift to the Queen; inserting himself into the Cambridge...

    AP Photo/Susan Walsh10. Both sides of the aisle consistently reject it...and the more you push it, the more people turn against you (Obama's disapproval rating is now 56%). 9. You must deliberately stack the deck with slanted calculations and misleading budget gimmicks to manufacture the illusion that it is "deficit-neutral." ObamaCare will explode the deficit with 111 new federal bureaucracies. 8. While insisting that "reducing costs" is the central purpose, you refuse to do anything at all about the primary cause of skyrocketing costs--frivolous lawsuits (because trial lawyers are huge Democrat campaign donors). 7. Rather than reducing costs, as advertised,...

    Farrah Fawcett, who skyrocketed to fame as one of a trio of impossibly glamorous private eyes on TV's Charlie's Angels, has died after a long battle with cancer. She was 62. Fawcett died at 9:28 a.m. PST at St. John’s Heath Center in Santa Monica, Calif. She had recently returned to St. John's for treatment of complications from anal cancer, first diagnosed three years ago. Her longtime partner Ryan O'Neal was at her side throughout her final days. Like so much about Fawcett's life – including her bumpy relationship with O'Neal – her heroic struggle to beat the disease was...

    Ten people were arrested in connection with a pro-Israel demonstration in Malmö on Sunday. The city's main square was closed as the demo met with anti-Israel protesters. Around 50 anti-Israel protesters had gathered but they were kept apart from the main demonstration, in front of the city hall on Stortorget, by a police barrier. The protesters were practically encircled by police but still managed to set off a number of bangers which disturbed the otherwise peaceful demonstration. Demonstrators displayed a sense of humour with several banners expressing comments on recent events concerning racism and racist stereotyping of some Malmö's residents...
  • Ten killed, eight detained as Coalition forces target al-Qaeda senior leaders (Samarra, Iraq)

    BAGHDAD – Ten terrorists were killed and eight suspects detained during Coalition forces operations Saturday north of Samarra. During three coordinated operations early Saturday, Coalition forces targeted senior al-Qaeda in Iraq leaders and associates, killing a wanted individual, believed to be associated with the Badush prison escape in March. Reports indicate that the wanted individual had previously been imprisoned for weapons smuggling. As the ground force approached the target area, they were engaged by armed men who were then observed maneuvering into defensive positions near a reed line. Responding in self-defense, the ground force called for supporting aircraft to engage,...
