    BBC ^ | 12/1/16 | Sean Coughlan
    More than 26,000 Muslim pupils are enrolled in Catholic schools in England and Wales. For the first time an annual census of Catholic schools has collected information on the number of pupils from other religions. The biggest group of non-Catholic pupils are from other Christian denominations - but almost a tenth are from Muslim families. The government has plans to encourage more Catholic free schools to open. This analysis shows that, overall, nearly a third of the more than 850,000 pupils within the Catholic school system are not Catholic - a total of almost 290,000.

    After nurses helped save Avery Gerleman’s life 10 years ago, she vowed to become a nurse like them. She’s almost there: Gerleman is scheduled to get pinned as a licensed practical nurse on Dec. 20. But the latest twist in her story? Erin Hageman and other nurses who helped save her at Wesley Medical Center have coached and encouraged her while she works as a nursing assistant at Wesley. She works at times in the same pediatric intensive care unit where her nurse friends cared for her as a patient. “It’s awesome to work with them,” Gerleman said. “Sometimes when...

    DALLAS — I am a Republican presidential elector, one of the 538 people asked to choose officially the president of the United States. Since the election, people have asked me to change my vote based on policy disagreements with Donald J. Trump. In some cases, they cite the popular vote difference. I do not think president-elects should be disqualified for policy disagreements. I do not think they should be disqualified because they won the Electoral College instead of the popular vote. However, now I am asked to cast a vote on Dec. 19 for someone who shows daily he is...

    Vice President Biden on Monday raised the possibility of a presidential bid in 2020. “I am going to run for president in 2020,” Biden told a group of reporters in the Capitol when asked about his political future. Asked if he was kidding, the 74-year-old Biden paused for four seconds before saying he is “not committing not to run.” “I am not committed to anything.

Over the past seven years, Benson and Gessner have worked as consultants for three major Chinese companies. They recruited dozens of U.S. admissions officers to fly to China and meet in person with the companies' student clients, with the companies picking up most of the travel expenses. Among the...

    Townhall.com ^ | December 5, 2016 | Ken Blackwell
    President-elect Donald Trump blamed his loss of the popular vote on election fraud. While that’s not likely, it doesn’t matter. Vote fraud is a serious problem that can subvert elections. The Trump administration should put electoral integrity at the top of its agenda. What sets the U.S. apart from so many other nations is that the government is accountable to the people, who actually choose their leaders. In the case of Donald Trump, they rejected the virtually unanimous advice of their “betters,” the cultural, business, and political elites who expect to rule. Average folks took back America. The greatest threat...

Signs confirmed to travelers — who had been bused in from the most remote parts of West Africa — that they had arrived at the U.S. Embassy in Accra. The “consular officers” working there were not Americans, but they spoke English and Dutch and issued official-looking visas and identification papers. They charged their customers $6,000. Billboards and fliers advertised the official services.

(Fortunately, no injuries have been reported.) Since the gunman was inspired by a false story, his crime was promptly blamed on "fake news." Then some pundits tried to link his assault to Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Donald Trump's pick to be national security adviser, on the grounds that Flynn had promoted the PizzaGate story. But it turned out the general had actually been alluding...

    In the turbulent wake of Amoris Laetitia, Francis may think he can calm the waves of disturbance he has unleashed throughout the Church and force an acceptance of his utter novelties in the realm of moral theology even despite the historic Four Cardinals Letter. The chosen modus operandi seems to be the use of mitered henchman — strategically vested with cardinal's hats in a move akin to promoting pawns to queens in a chess endgame. Their role on the Bergoglian chess board is to denounce the four cardinals and other objectors as fomenters of "disunity" and "disloyalty" to the Pope,...

  • Intelligence Committee Call On Obama To Declassify Evidence Of Russian Election Interference

    We've been a lot more skeptical than most about all the claims of "Russian interference" with the US Presidential election this year. While I don't doubt there was some effort to do something, Russia is such an easy scapegoat. Still, plenty of people insist that it's true, including those who at least should have a fair bit of insight into what actually happened. To me, the bigger issue is that attribution in many of these things is a lot more difficult than most people make it out to be. Either way, it's quite noteworthy that seven Senators on the Senate...

  • A look at the global eel trade reveals widespread fraud

    Asia Review ^ | 03 December 2016 | TOMIO SHIDA
    TOKYO -- The glass eel trade is coming under international scrutiny. Already, cultured eels account for more than 99% of the world's supplies. But the farming of these eels is totally reliant on elvers born in the wild. Although techniques to create artificial breeders to allow for the full cultivation of eels have been established, commercial production, as in the case of tuna, remains impossible. A big problem is that much of the glass eel trade essentially takes place in the dark. In Japan, the Fisheries Agency calculates the volume of the country's eel catches by subtracting the amount of...

    The left allows itself any number of rhetorical excesses about Donald Trump. He is a “fascist,” a dangerous “strongman,” a “tyrant” in waiting, and so forth. But when an actual tyrant dies such as Fidel Castro the left quickly adopts more measured rhetoric. Its hysterical editorialists suddenly turn sedate. They urge people to see a reviled figure in perspective. Castro’s legacy is “divisive,” as the New Yorker hesitantly put it. “Cuba today is a dilapidated country, but its social and economic indicators are the envy of many of its neighbors.” Casting about for a circumspect word to describe a mass...

    Germans have been urged not to scapegoat migrants, after an Afghan youth was arrested over the rape and murder of a German student. A 17-year-old Afghan boy is under suspicion because a DNA test appears to link him to the spot in Freiburg where the woman was attacked in October. Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel warned Germans not to exploit the crime "for incitement and conspiracy propaganda". Last year's massive influx of migrants fuelled tensions over immigration. The 19-year-old medical student disappeared in mid-October on her way home from a party in Freiburg, south-western Germany. Her body was found in the...

    Several Democratic members of the New York congressional delegation think President-elect Donald Trump should pay for his own security costs if his family chooses to maintain two residences while he's in the White House. In a letter Monday to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, six Democrats representing various New York City boroughs said Trump should pick up the tab for the security costs of living in Washington and Manhattan. Also Monday, de Blasio said he’s asking the Obama administration to reimburse New York $35 million for Trump’s security costs through Inauguration Day...

    A Hawaiian Airlines flight bound for New York City turned back and returned to Honolulu Tuesday after an intoxicated passenger allegedly threatened to kill numerous people on board, including crewmembers, his girlfriend, and her children. According to an FBI affidavit, James August allegedly struck a flight attendant's shoulder and began making death threats when she tried to intervene. Another passenger on Hawaiian Airlines Flight 50 told the FBI August had been drinking before the flight took off, the AP notes. Once on board, August reportedly continued drinking and became increasingly unruly. (He reportedly snuck his own booze onto the flight.)...

    Dallas — I am a Republican presidential elector, one of the 538 people asked to choose officially the president of the United States. Since the election people have asked me to change my vote based on policy disagreements with Donald J. Trump. In some cases, they cite the popular vote difference. I do not think president-elects should be disqualified for policy disagreements. I do not think they should be disqualified because they won the Electoral College instead of the popular vote. However, now I am asked to cast a vote on Dec. 19 for someone who shows daily he is...

    There once was a time when China was afraid of offending us, but liberal pundits, politicians, and those human equivalents of the dodo bird, career diplomats, are aghast that President-elect Donald Trump took a congratulatory phone call from the democratically elected president of Taiwan Tsai-Ing-wen. Trump acted to “buck diplomatic protocol”, the chattering class harrumphed, and offended China, whose leader, President Xi JinPing, President Obama bowed to in 2014 at the APEC Economic Leader’s meeting in China. Trump’s hyperventilating critics forget that to accept a call from a foreign leader is not conducting foreign policy. President-elect Trump knows full well...

    One day while hunting one of the highly trained dogs was chasing some pigs by scent and collided with a big buck kangaroo that then held and wrestled the dog by its protective gear (boars have tusks like knives), the owner was horrified that his dog or the kangaroo would get hurt and run in to save both parties. You can see the dog trying to escape, wanting nothing to do with the kangaroo. The big buck kangaroo releases the dog when the owner gets close but then moves in to try and attack the human.
