Ian Wright reveals gang held knife to
his wife´s throat during burglary

Daily Mail (U.K.), by David Kent

Ian Wright has spoken of the ´terrifying´ moment an armed gang held a Stanley knife to his wife´s throat and threatened to cut off her fingers before they fled with family possessions including the former Arsenal and England star´s MBE. The 50-year-old pundit had to cut short his work for ITV at the World Cup in Brazil to look after wife Nancy, 39, and their daughters, aged four and two, following the raid on Wednesday night. Wright went straight to a waiting car which whisked him back to his family after his 11-hour flight from Rio de Janeiro landed at

You stupid Americans clinging to your guns and religion.. Don´t you know how much better England is? No private ownership of guns, and the government runs health care. What a paradise!

Ironic, the Brits kept complaining that Brazil would be the dangerous place to be.

Sorry this happened to Mr. Wright´s family, but it can happen anywhere.

Scientist who faked AIDS research indicted
Des Moines Register [IA], by Grant Rodgers    Original Article

A former Iowa State University scientist who admitted faking lab results to obtain millions in grant money for AIDS research has been charged with four felony counts of making false statements, an indictment filed in federal court shows. Dr. Dong Pyou Han left his job as an assistant professor and a laboratory manager at the university last year after admitting that he spiked rabbit blood with human antibodies that made it appear the animals´ immune systems were reacting to an AIDS vaccine being tested. In reality, the vaccine was having little effect, according to Han´s indictment. Before the fraud was

An attempted home invasion turned into a murder investigation Tuesday morning. One suspect is dead and another is in critical condition after allegedly holding a gun to a teen’s head. St. Louis police are releasing chilling details of a late night shooting in south St. Louis that left one person dead, another injured and a neighborhood shaken up. (snip) It all went down at 11:00pm last night on Newport near Neosho in the Bevo Mill neighborhood. Investigators say it all started with a teenaged girl being confronted by two armed men in front of her home. It ended with one

Ex-CNN employee claims boss

Clothes unmade the man. A former CNN employee claims he was fired because he’s gay and wore bright colors and mariachi outfits to work that were deemed “too flamboyant,” according to a $60 million discrimination lawsuit. William Kane, who started working at CNN in 2002, claims nobody at the news network ever informed him of a dress code or complained about the hot pink designer shirt he wore in his employee ID photo. (snip) “I feel like the Rosa Parks of CNN. Maybe someone else won’t have to suffer the way I have,” he told the Daily News

Three armed men burst in through a back door of The Pit restaurant on Geer Street about 9 p.m. Sunday, demanding access to the safe. Out front, employees ushered about 20 guests to safety outside. “While our employees cleared out the guests, in the back the robbers were working with a manager to get into the safe,” said Greg Hatem, owner of the restaurant. “They were able to leave with a small cash box.” All in all, Hatem said, the robbers were in the restaurant for about two minutes. During the incident, two employees were hurt. One went to the hospital and was treated and released, he said. The other never sought medical attention.

Clippers´ Sterling slams

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling repeatedly disparaged Magic Johnson´s HIV-positive status in an interview that aired Monday, saying he was not a fit role model for children and dismissing his work in business and charity. The interview with CNN´s Anderson Cooper was meant to be a mea culpa in Sterling´s first public comments since racist recordings emerged last month and earned him a lifetime NBA ban, but when the subject turned to Johnson, who was mentioned in the recordings, Sterling is anything but apologetic. "He´s got AIDS!" Sterling said loudly at one point, cutting off Cooper as the interviewer

Woman’s bravery, high technology
lead to accused home invader’s arrest

It took police a quick three days to make an arrest in a horrific, random home invasion in West Columbia last month. But now, some are wondering why the alleged assailant was out of jail in the first place. The woman – police are calling her heroic – was shot numerous times while protecting her 6-year-old daughter from rape by the invader. But the woman managed to secure a vital clue toward the man’s identity. Then, detectives used modern crime-fighting technology – rapid DNA matches and cell-phone locating methods – to seal the ID of the man and track his

The discovery of sunken gold conjures up visions of instant riches: Swiss bank accounts and lazy afternoons on faraway beaches, daiquiris in hand. But the quest to salvage the S.S. Central America — which went down in 1857 in a hurricane off South Carolina carrying 425 souls, as well as thousands of coins, bars and nuggets of California gold — has produced a quarter-century of broken dreams and legal nightmares. The bones of the side-wheeler were discovered in 1988, nearly a mile and a half down. The finder hauled up glittering coins and boasted of treasure worth $1 billion.

USC shooter´s 40-year prison
sentence: Don´t call it justice
LA Times, by Paul Thornton    Original Article

Brandon Spencer, the 21-year-old former gang member sentenced to 40 years to life in prison for attempted murder, may have sobbed like a toddler Friday after learning that the next several decades of his life will be spent behind bars, but he deserves little sympathy, wrote Times columnist Sandy Banks on Monday. But several of our readers had a much more charitable, even forgiving, attitude toward Spencer. The two sides don´t dispute the facts: A gun-toting Spencer showed up at a Halloween party at USC in 2012 looking to exact revenge on a gang rival; several shots later, three innocent bystanders

Today is the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster in England. Ninety-six Liverpool fans died and more than 700 were injured in a human crush in the opening minutes of the 1989 FA Cup Semifinal at Hillsborough stadium in Sheffield. Inadequate turnstiles created a bottleneck and a crush of thousands of fans outside the ground on the Liverpool side. Police opened a gate, allowing the fans to enter. Standing room fans were kept in enclosed pens at some stadiums for security purposes. Police did not close the entrance to the already full central pens. Thousands streamed down the central tunnel,

Broken ATM at South Portland

A waitress who stopped to deposit her tips in an ATM in South Portland early Thursday morning wound up saving her bank more than $37,000 – minus the $100 she got back as a reward. The woman called police to report a suspicious man at TD Bank’s ATM on Maine Mall Road. What she didn’t know at the time was that the machine had malfunctioned and was spitting out cash as fast as the man could ask for it. Officers arrived around 5:30 a.m. and found him stuffing thousands of dollars from the machine into a plastic shopping bag, said

Cinderella never before received such a gift. Stephen F. Austin, a No. 12 seed and a popular pick to upset No. 5 Virginia Commonwealth, did just that Friday night, 77-75 in overtime. But how the Lumberjacks became the latest underdog to have its NCAA day is miraculous, instant-classic stuff. It didn´t really happen, did it? Except that it did. "Miracles do happen," said Brad Underwood, the first-year coach of Stephen F. Austin, the unheralded mid-major from Nacogdoches, Texas.

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

WASHINGTON -- The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service refused to apologize to Congress for losing e-mails related to its targeting of conservative groups, saying it´s still attempting to recover the data and it´s too soon to know how many e-mails are missing. "I don´t think an apology is owed," Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means Committee. "Every e-mail has been preserved that we have." In his most contentious hearing since becoming commissioner six months ago, Koskinen testified about efforts the IRS has made to recover e-mails that were lost when Lois Lerner´s computer hard drive crashed

At a time when debate is swirling over the assertion that 97 percent of scientists endorse man-made global warming, Secretary of State John Kerry – a frequent citer of the 97 percent figure – in a speech Wednesday nudged the figure up to “at least 98, 99 percent.” “When it comes to climate change, when it comes to food security, we are literally facing a moment of adversity – perhaps even dire necessity,” Kerry said at a State Department food security award ceremony. “It’s hard to convince people – hard to convince people of a challenge that isn’t immediately tangible

Fox News host Bill O´Reilly dissed conservative talk radio host and icon Rush Limbaugh at an event in New York City Wednesday evening. According to the Daily Beast, O´Reilly told the audience, “I’m not Rush Limbaugh or Al Franken, where everything has to fit into my worldview… I’m a fact-based guy. A lot of people don’t understand that.” O´Reilly made his remarks about being a "fact-based guy" days after he tried to convince his viewers that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) did not lose his primary race last week to Dave Brat because of the amnesty issue. O´Reilly conveniently ignored the

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

President Obama´s approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News. In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president. The survey would appear to be so bad, in fact, that NBC News´ Chuck Todd said Tuesday that the poll basically means the public has declared the Obama presidency to be

President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children. The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S. With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R.

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer apparently doesn’t think Southern men are manly. Following Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor’s stunning loss last week, Mr. Schweitzer initial response, according to a profile in The National Journal, was, “men in the South, they are a little effeminate.” “They just have effeminate mannerisms,” Mr. Schweitzer said. “If you were just a regular person, you turned on the TV, and you saw Eric Cantor talking, I would say—and I’m fine with gay people, that’s all right—but my gaydar is 60-70 percent.” “But he’s not, I think, so I don’t know.

The U.S. is leading by example in promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) rights at home and around the world, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday. He said the federal government recognizes same-sex marriages of foreign diplomats stationed in the U.S., and it expects all other countries to do the same in their treatment of U.S. personnel deployed abroad. “Let me be clear: We oppose any effort by any country to deny visas for spouses of American staff,” he said. “It’s discriminatory, it’s unacceptable, it has no place in the 21st century.”
