    A woman who was brutally beaten by three men on a Crown Heights sidewalk says the attack, which left her with a broken nose and facial lacerations, will not stop her from pursuing her modeling career.

Yesterday the NYPD released security camera video of the assault and robbery: Reyes, an aspiring model, says she found it "difficult to watch" the video, for obvious reasons.

One witness blames heavy alcohol use at earlier parties. WMUR-TV in Manchester showed footage of a crowd toppling over a car, people running from tear gas clouds and street signs being torn down. Police dressed in riot gear ordered crowds to disperse. The parties were part of the Keene Pumpkin Festival, where the community tries to set a world record of the largest number of lighted jack-o-lanterns.

    Aerospace engineering is a challenging major under the best of circumstances. Over 100 people were in my freshman class, but only 15 graduated.

To apply for grad school you had to write your essays, pay the application fees, apply for fellowships, collect letters of recommendation, etc. And self-supporting students like me also had...

    Teens from a of Brooklyn housing complexes are locked in an ongoing turf war that has left two dead and several others wounded in recent months, police sources said. The clashes began as innocently as staredowns, growing into fist fights and then gunplay. The gang wanna-bes - some as young as 12 - hang out at the developments separated by about four blocks. Police said the fisticuffs have exploded into gunfire between the Hood Starz, of Marcus Garvey Village, and the Brownsville Fly Guys, of the Marcus Garvey Houses. The two groups, police said, used to be allies. But there...

    Angela Merkel does not make the covers of Dutch newspapers very often. But the German chancellor's assertion last week that "multiculturalism has absolutely failed" in her country was headline news in the Netherlands. As far as the Dutch are concerned, the Germans - whom they consider to sometimes be politically behind the times - have finally woken up. The Netherlands' dream of a happy, harmonious multicultural society burst on a grey autumn morning six years ago in Amsterdam. On November 2, 2004, an Islamic extremist gunned down Dutch filmmaker and Islam critic Theo van Gogh in the street, then slit...

    How easy is it to pop the bubble of safety we all walk around in? How suddenly can a town of smiling friends and neighbors turn into a den of contorted-faced ghouls? It only takes a moment. I realized this when I got a letter from a local family who wanted to recount a horrifying incident. The young parents — who asked that their full names not be printed — were visiting Columbia’s Activity & Recreation Center on a recent Sunday. Their 20-month-old son is learning to swim, and they spent the afternoon splashing in the indoor pool. But as...

    You probably didn’t hear about it, but Muslim youths rioted in Grenoble, France, on July 16, sparking some of the worst instability the country has faced since the 2005 riots. Now, like then, most of the media declined to mention the religious or ethnic background of the rioters, instead painting them as unruly youngsters and covering the eyes of the public to the slow dissolution of France as we know it. The violence began soon after a Muslim robbed a casino and opened fire as he tried to flee the police, who then shot and killed him. This apparently raised...
