    "A woman named “Sarah” upset over a local resident’s Trump/Pence and “Hillary for Prison” lawn signs flipped off the owner of the house as she drove by. The owner of the house jumped in his own car and followed the woman while taking photos of the woman’s vehicle. A law enforcement officer pulled over both vehicles to the side of the road and the woman turned on her video camera and began talking to her “followers” about the incident. Her camera continued to record even when the police officer spoke to her."

    NEW YORK (AP) — A tearful U.S. citizen who bribed a top United Nations official to get support for business ventures was sentenced to 20 months in prison Friday by a judge who said bribery schemes do "substantial damage" to the U.N.'s image. Sheri Yan, 60, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Vernon Broderick in Manhattan after pleading guilty to a bribery charge in January. The judge said prison was necessary because of the seriousness of the crime.

Workers came to repair a malfunctioning elevator in the northern city of Xi'an on January 30, Beijing Youth Daily cited local authorities as saying. The crew found the elevator stuck between the 10th and 11th floors, shouted to ask if anyone was there, and cut the power, it said.

The notes and images—often showing the pontiff, who was made a saint in 2014, in casual wear—reveal a friendship between himself and American philosopher Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka that included holidays spent together and an intimate relationship that historians are trying to figure out.

There is a vindictive refrain accompanying Ashton Carter’s recent dictat that the combat arms be opened to women without exception. “You women asked for this,” some seem to be saying, “now suck it up.” No, most military women did not ask for it, but the few times they’ve been asked, their voices have been ignored in favor of a teeny tiny group dishonestly claiming, “This is equality.” Some 92.5%...

    Psychologists have long said that men tend to be better than women at spatial tasks, like mentally picturing and manipulating shapes. Hundreds of studies spanning several decades have shown that on average, men score higher on tests asking them to rotate objects in their heads. This is one of the few persistent and significant differences scientists have discovered between the brains of men and women. The pattern also aligns, perhaps suspiciously, with stereotypes about men being better at reading maps or parking -- or putting together flat-pack furniture. That last cliche might actually be true. Researchers at the University of...

By the age of 20, she was even fluent in braille. “I was ‘blind-simming’, which is pretending to be blind, but the idea kept coming up in my head and by...
