    Jemma Beale, a UK citizen, has accused 15 men of rape. One of the accused fled the country rather than serve time. Another spent two years in prison because of Beale's accusations. Now she's going to prison, because it turns out all her accusations were bollocks: A fantasist who made up bogus rape and sex assault claims against 15 men in three years for "attention" has been jailed for 10 years. ... The 25-year-old would injure herself and use self-inflicted cuts and bruises against the 15 victims she falsely accused of sex attacks -- including one who fled the country...

    AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has lost his appeal against a string of recent convictions in New Zealand. The musician had been ordered in June to serve a sentence of eight months home detention along with six months of post-release conditions and payment of $NZ120,000 (51,000) reparation after pleading guilty to charges of threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis. However, his appeal, which argued that the sentence was manifestly excessive, was rejected by New Zealands high court.

    Maya Angelou was known for her inspirational and thought-provoking quotes, so it's only fitting that a stamp commemorating her features one. A new postage stamp that was unveiled in a dedication ceremony Tuesday morning celebrating the late literary icon aimed to do just that. It features her image with the quote, "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song." Except that quote ... isn't Angelou's.

    April DeBoer never intended to be a legal pioneer, much less a public face of perhaps the most significant civil rights challenge to reach the Supreme Court in years. She and her partner just wanted to be able to adopt children as a couple. But when their lawsuit challenging Michigans adoption code came to a federal district court in 2012, the judge shocked DeBoer and her partner, Jayne Rowse, telling them they should instead be contesting the states same-sex marriage ban. After much anguished discussion, the couple agreed, DeBoer recounted. By no means did we set out to be...

    NY Magazine is reporting that Before she was married to New York City public advocate and Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio, Chirlane McCray was a lesbian. How is this possible? Once gay, always gay. Isnt this what weve always heard? I was born that way. . . Homosexuality is not a choice. . . You didnt choose to be heterosexual. I didnt choose to be homosexual. The claims go on and on. Gm When someone leaves the same-sex lifestyle, the homosexual community goes into recovery mode: The persons in denial. Is Mrs. De Blasio in denial? The homosexual...

    In 2010, she wore red. In 2011, she wore white. So, what did Michelle Obama wear in 2012? A politically-charged, patriotic shade of blue. The First Lady looked regal in a short-sleeved, sapphire-blue, Barbara Tfank dress Tuesday evening for the President's State of the Union address. Tfank, a New York and Los Angeles-based designer, prides herself upon designing pieces that are "timeless." [Snip] The First Lady's hair and makeup looked perfectly elegant as well... and we're dying to see some photos of her shoes.

    Infuriated lower Manhattan residents went ballistic on Zuccotti Park protesters at a chaotic Community Board 1 meeting tonight while blasting politicians for allowing the siege to continue without any end in sight. "They are defecating on our doorsteps," fumed Katherine Hughes, a stay at home mom who has the misfortune of living one block from the chaos. "A lot of people are very frustrated. A lot of people are concerned about the safety of our kids." Fed up homeowners said that they've been subjected to insults and harassment as they trek to their jobs each morning. "The protesters taunt people...

    A prominent Florida atheist activist has been charged with verbally simulating sex in the presence of a 10-year-old neighbor. Ellen Beth Wachs, 48, was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior. Wachs has been prominent in her opposition to prayer at public meetings and challenged the constitutionality of the sheriff donating jail basketball hoops to Polk County churches. An arrest affidavit said she was arrested following a Saturday morning dispute with a neighbor. According to the affidavit, the 10-year-old boy was playing basketball when Wachs yelled through her open bedroom window for him to stop. The boy was joined outside by...

    A Jefferson High School dance coach was free on bail Tuesday after her arrest on allegations she had a relationship with an 18-year-old male student, officials said. Destini Michelle Munoz, 25, was released from a holding cell at the city magistrate's office after posting $15,000 bail around 9:50 a.m., charged with one count of being involved in an improper relationship between an educator and a student, Bexar County records show. San Antonio Independent School District police and the Texas Rangers arrested her about 11 p.m. Monday. A student told her mother about Munoz's alleged relationship, and the parent called district...

    With her husband facing electoral oblivion at next week's mid-terms, Michelle Obama is clearly prepared to do anything she can to help. Whether showing off her dance moves on Ellen was a politically astute gimmick, however, remains to be seen. The First Lady appeared on the daytime chat show just hours after her husband went on The Jon Stewart Show in a desperate attempt to woo younger voters. The President has been attacked for appearing on a comparatively lightweight show hosted by a comedian. At one point Stewart even called him 'dude', the first time word has been used...

If you are not living an American life, you are, to use a Palin coinage, living bass-ackwards.(snip) I approached reading her book with trepidation, worried I might learn that I am not a real American, dang it, just another dreaded, jaded enlightened elite.

    March 18, 2009 Michelle Obama's toned arms spark a trend Dress designers and Michelle Obama have developed an obsession with toned biceps. Is this a new kind of low-key status symbol, asks our Fashion Editor Lisa Armstrong Who knew that when the faintest dimple on the mountain of Michelle Obama adulation manifested itself, it would be incurred by the First Lady's propensity to display her biceps? It began, as barely perceptible dips in adulation (and concurrent spikes in envy) often do, when she appeared on the March cover of American Vogue. The accompanying gallery, in which the First Lady's fine...
