    Earlier this month, Symone Greene, a 22-year-old substitute teacher at Options Public Charter School in Washington, D.C., allegedly provided oral sex to a 17-year-old male student on the first day of her teaching assignment, in her classroom, right behind the teacher’s desk. As a result of the frisky encounter, the family of the 17-year-old male student has now filed a $3 million lawsuit, NBC Washington reports.

    Remember the song “Baa Baa Black Sheep”? The harmless nursery rhyme was written in the early 1700s and has been sung by children around the world ever since. At least it used to be, now it may be a hate crime. Child care centers in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, are changing the song because of racial and sexist connotations in the lyrics.

    Arab News ^ | Tuesday 3 June 2014
    Fierce fighting between Islamists and a rogue Libyan general killed at least 18 people in Benghazi on Monday, triggering fears of an all-out war as hospitals urged citizens to donate blood. Officials at hospitals in the eastern city, the birthplace of the 2011 NATO-backed uprising that toppled dictator Muammar Qaddafi, said at least 11 soldiers were among the dead and that 81 people were wounded. The government of outgoing prime minister Abdullah Al-Thani said it was holding an “emergency meeting” on the violence, which residents said had eased in the afternoon. An air force commander said the clashes erupted when...
  • Jet Bombs Militants' Base in Benghazi

    A Libyan air force jet bombed positions held by Islamist militants Sunday in the eastern city of Benghazi, a senior military official said, apparently as part of a renegade general’s ongoing offensive. The official said the bombing targeted a base belonging to a local militia group called February 17 and the area of Sidi Faraj, where members of the extremist organization Ansar Al-Shariah are located. An official from Ansar Al-Shariah said no one was hurt in the bombing and claimed that one of two rockets fired by the aircraft hit a car dealership. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity...

    ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) — A documentary film production company has found buried in a New Mexico landfill hundreds of the Atari "E.T." game cartridges that some call the worst video game ever made.

A New York Times article from Sept. 28, 1983, says 14 truckloads of discarded game cartridges and computer equipment were dumped on the site.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on top of yet another poll today. But it's not the result her team was hoping for. In a new Rasmussen Reports poll, Clinton tops five others as the one candidate voters don't want to win in 2016. "Regardless of whom you would vote for, which candidate would you least like to see win the Democratic nomination in 2016? Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Martin O'Malley, Andrew Cuomo, Antonio Villaraigosa or Cory Booker?" Rasmussen asked. The results: Clinton 27 percent, Biden 24 percent. The rest were in the 15 percent to 17 percent, reported...

I have heard that a sitting Grand Jury was bypassed to avoid them from reviewing the evidence. I had more concern before Zimmerman's acquittal of all charges but the curiosity remains. If there wasn’t evidence for a charge right after the incident what changed four months later? Was some power trying to suppress a charge or was some power trying to bring a charge?

    Actual title edited for space issues: United Methodist Seminary Ponders Removing Cross from Chapel To make the space more appropriate for Jain, Buddhist, and Islamic religious services After recently facing some financial challenges, the seminary decided to more or less literally sell itself for $50 million to a large donor who helped transform it from a Christian seminary into Claremont Lincoln University, devoted to jointly training Buddhist, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, and Jain clergy. In celebrating the move, Claremont President Jerry Campbell bizarrely declared that Christians who seek to obey Christ’s command to evangelize non-Christians have “an incorrect perception of what...

    Boys in the United States may be entering puberty earlier than in generations past, a new study has found, suggesting it's not just girls who are developing at younger ages. Based on the so-called Tanner stages of development - a technique doctors use to measure how far along in puberty a young person is - genital changes in boys started around the age of 9 or 10, and pubic hair appeared between age 10 and 11 1/2, on average.

    BAINBRIDGE, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) — Ohio authorities arrested a topless woman after she allegedly led them on a high-speed police chase that saw speeds of more than 120 mph. Authorities aren’t sure where – or how – Erin Holdsworth, 28, of Hiram, started her night on Oct. 11. All they know is that it ended with a car chase down Route 422 that, at its fastest, reached 128 mph. Officers also know that, when they found her, she was wearing nothing but fishnet stockings, g-string panties and a pair of high heels. Police say Holdsworth was seen speeding, but refused...

The number of Americans satisfied with the ways things are going hits new lows—11%. President Obama’s popularity: new lows. The Dow Jones Industrial Average this year: new lows....

    Sudan accused Israel yesterday of launching a missile strike on its territory on Tuesday - an attack that demolished a car and killed its two passengers. Israel did not comment on the attack or the accusations. (Snip) Israeli defense officials have accused Sudan of enabling Iran to smuggle arms through its territory in convoys, via Egypt, to the Gaza Strip. Sudanese officials describe the attack as being targeted against a specific person. But sending an aerial force to such a remote destination to kill one lone militant appears to be unusual.

In more than eight decades of activism, the Muslim Brotherhood has consistently promoted an agenda of gradual reform.

    Dem says it’s wrong to celebrate Christmas if unemployment benefits not extended. On Thursday’s magnificent installment of "Hardball" on MSNBC (which is barely watched by anyone…except the hardest of hardcore libs), Congressman Jim McDermott was on with Chris Matthews, making the case about unemployment benefits extension, when he brought Christianity into the mix. According to McDermott, it’s "simply wrong" to celebrate Christmas and some of its themes like caring about the poor…if Americans do not support extending unemployment benefits. This week was a particularly insane week on "Hardball," as earlier in the week, Democrat senator Sherrod Brown blasphemed that unemployment...

    Here’s a rather bizarre biographical nugget about President Obama that somehow seems to have escaped the media’s attention. According to the New York Times, Obama had a rather unusual caretaker growing up in Indonesia: His nanny was an openly gay man who, in keeping with Indonesia’s relaxed attitudes toward homosexuality, carried on an affair with a local butcher, longtime residents said. The nanny later joined a group of transvestites called Fantastic Dolls, who, like the many transvestites who remain fixtures of Jakarta’s streetscape, entertained people by dancing and playing volleyball.

The transformational candidate who was going to sweep away pork-barrel politics, lobbyists and corruption has been up to his neck in sleaze, as eviscerated here by Charles Krauthammer. Despite the fact that he came to power promising to ‘ban all earmarks’, his ‘stimulus’ bill represents billions of dollars of special-interest tax breaks, giveaways and protections -- which have nothing...

    There is something missing from California Legislature's "special session" to deal with a budget crisis: legislators. Most of them are not in Sacramento. Some are not even in the country. As staff writer Matthew Yi reported Wednesday, at least a dozen legislators saw no reason to cancel their vacations or fact-finding junkets merely because the governor summoned them for a special session to deal with a shortfall that may reach $28 billion over the next 18 months. Each passing day means that the state is spending millions of dollars more than its revenues - with the state on course to...
