    What Pop Star Lady Gaga Did on Stage Thursday Night Has Some Calling It Downright ‘Sick’ (GRAPHIC) Pop star Lady Gaga is known for her shocking outfits and antics. But what she did on stage Thursday night at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, has left even some of the most desensitized critics calling it “ridiculous” and “sick.” While performing her song “Swine,” the singer was joined by someone named Millie Brown. Brown is an artist of sorts who specializes in painting with…vomit. That’s right, she ingests colored liquid and then sticks her fingers down her throat and...

Zuma ordered all flags in the nation to be...

    Bill de Blasio’s wife opened up about falling in love with a man after years of identifying as a lesbian and their life as a “very conventional, unconventional couple” in a candid interview released Thursday. Chirlane McCray, 58, said her relationship with de Blasio was made possible “by putting aside the assumptions I had about the form and package my love would come in.” The interview, with Essence magazine, comes 34 years after McCray penned a groundbreaking 1979 essay for Essence entitled, “I Am a Lesbian,” about coming out as a gay black woman. A dozen years later, in 1991,...

    Apparatchiks have been seizing lunches packed by parents and forcing kids to eat government-issued lunches instead. These lunches often include an ammonia-laced substance microbiologist Gerald Zirnstein has dubbed “pink slime”: Made by grinding together connective tissue and beef scraps normally destined for dog food and rendering, BPI’s Lean Beef Trimmings are then treated with ammonia hydroxide, a process that kills pathogens such as salmonella and E. coli. The resulting pinkish substance is later blended into traditional ground beef and hamburger patties.

By Ben Ehrenreich It's hard to imagine now, but in 1944, six years after Kristallnacht, Lessing J. Rosenwald, president of the American Council for Judaism, felt comfortable equating the Zionist ideal of Jewish statehood with "the concept of a racial state -- the Hitlerian concept." For most of the last century, a principled opposition to Zionism was a mainstream stance within American Judaism. Even after the foundation of Israel, anti-Zionism was not a particularly heretical position. Assimilated Reform Jews like...

A laboratory study has found that food pathogens survive being eaten by protozoa living on spinach and lettuce. The temporary asylum might help bacteria stick onto leafy greens or resist efforts to kill them before packaging.

A team led by microbiologist Sharon Berk, of Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, fed...

    An Australian criminal who was so nervous during a hold-up that he was physically sick has been incriminated by his own vomit. Police took DNA from the pool of sick and matched it to Ahmed Habib Jalloul, 20. He was found guilty of the aggravated robbery of a post office in Adelaide, South Australia. An Adelaide court was told that Jalloul vomited "out of fear" during the raid on the post office last April. He fled the scene in a stolen car with two accomplices and £1,730 in cash. Police conducted forensic analysis of the vomit and matched it with...

    Winning hearts and minds -- the Bush administration, foreign policy wonks, even the U.S. military agree that this is the key to any victory over global terrorism. Yet our public diplomacy program has made little progress on improving America's image. Few seem to recognize that American ignorance of Islam and Muslims has been the fatal flaw. How much do Americans know about the views and beliefs of Muslims around the world? According to polls, not much. Perhaps not surprising, the majority of Americans (66%) admit to having at least some prejudice against Muslims; one in five say they have "a...

    GLENN: Now, I got into this story about San Francisco. San Francisco has, you know, has Alcatraz and some of the residents in San Francisco wanted to tear Alcatraz down because, you know, it was a prison. The last thing you'd like is a prison, you know. That's not nice. And they wanted to erect a global peace center. Now, I can't go on this story unless I know for sure that this is accurate. It says here 78% of the precincts reporting. About 72% of San Francisco voters opposed the tearing down of Alcatraz. STU: We do have an...

    Former President Bill Clinton was in Denver, Colorado, stumping for his wife yesterday. In a long, and interesting speech, he characterized what the U.S. and other industrialized nations need to do to combat global warming this way: "We just have to slow down our economy and cut back our greenhouse gas emissions 'cause we have to save the planet for our grandchildren."
