These stirring images captured in war-torn Afghanistan give a rare insight into life on the frontline. One image, taken by Australian photographer Gary Ramage, shows medics desperately fighting to save the life of a wounded marine as he makes his way to hospital via helicopter. In another, a small girl can be seen looking on as a soldier takes aim at a suspected Taliban fighter in Helmand Province. Further photos show medics hosing down a medical helicopter after it has been used to transport a wounded soldier. ´I am a combat photographer who has seen too much death,´ Ramage writes

There is an image of a helicopter crewman cleaning the floor of the aircraft after picking up wounded soldiers. When I saw it, my mind immediately took me to Randall Jarrell´s short poem, "Death of the Ball Turrent Gunner, from WWII (look it up) the final line, "...When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose."
The article is good, but the writer seems to think that the photographer suffers as much as the combat soldiers. No, not true.

Dozens were killed when North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un´s most powerful nuclear missile test yet caused buildings to collapse. Houses and a school near his nuclear base at Punggye-ri were brought down when his tests caused a 6.3 magnitude earthquake injuring up to 150 pupils in North Hamgyong Province. His explosion triggered aftershocks within eight minutes, hitting structures in a nearby village. News of the deaths emerged today after there were three more shocks following the underground test back in September, according to the Sunday Express.

Back and forth it goes. President Trump says he had it in the bag, but turned it down, so far as being named TIME magazine’s person of the year, 2017. Never happened, say the magazine’s editors. Trump was never in the running. Why Trump cares about this in the first place is a mystery. In case he forgot, he was last year’s choice. Anyway, he is the president for the next four years…and hopefully the next eight years…so what’s the big deal? I mean, who cares about 2017? It’s been a rotten year. Best forgotten once it’s gone.

John Jay College of Criminal Justice is displaying 36 pieces of art by Gitmo detainees but the Department of Defense wants the paintings and sculptures destroyed. The school is funded by tax payers. Families of 9/11 victims were particularly upset to learn about the artwork. ´I can´t understand how this college in particular would allow such a thing. Where´s their decency?

Andy Murray might not be best known for his sense of humour but he demonstrated his funny side with a hilarious tweet aimed at Donald Trump. The US President took to Twitter late on Friday to claim that Time Magazine was planning on making him their Person of the Year again. He wrote: ´Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot.

Theresa May is considering giving the European Court of Justice a role in Britain once it has left the EU. The Prime Minister has held talks about a potential referral system to the ECJ for European citizens who remain in the UK. Judges in the UK would refer cases to Luxembourg should queries crop up that have not been addressed during Britain´s membership of the EU. Theresa May discussed the idea at a meeting of her inner Brexit Cabinet on Monday, The Sun reported. One senior Government source said the solution would be a ´good compromise´ and could represent a significant breakthrough in

Linda Tripp, a former figure in the Monica Lewinsky scandal, is lashing out at those who are only belatedly condemning Bill Clinton for his conduct, having herself long ago concluded he was a ´predator.´ The string of headlines about powerful men abusing their status and harassing women ´is forcing me to relive a lot of it,´ said Tripp, who befriended Lewinsky and then recorded conversations about Lewinsky´s affair with the president and handed over information to prosecutors. Trip spoke after recent criticism of former President Bill Clinton by some Democrats – including New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who says Clinton

While she was director of the Internal Revenue Service, Lois Lerner targeted conservative Tea Party groups by denying or delaying tax-exempt status due to their political leanings in opposition to the Obama administration.That is fact. The IRS admitted wrong-doing in this stunning "apology":“The IRS admits that its treatment of Plaintiffs during the tax-exempt determination process, including screening their applications based on their names or policy positions, subjecting those applications to heightened scrutiny and inordinate delays, and demanding some Plaintiffs’ information that TIGTA determined was unnecessary to the agency’s determination of their tax-exempt status, was wrong.

James O’Keefe is a celebrated right-wing pseudo-journalist whose job consists largely of attempting to prove various conservative conspiracy theories but, instead, accidentally disproving them. O’Keefe’s most recent fail is an attempt to help alleged child molester Roy Moore by tarnishing the Washington Post. O’Keefe recruited a fake source, who attempted to lure the Post into reporting her false accusations and “admitting” on camera that their reporting would affect the outcome of the election. The scam collapsed for a number of reasons. His fake source provided a flimsy cover story with odd details — she claimed to have only spent a
