    We have heard over and over again that America is still the world’s fountain of innovation, the home of fracking and Facebook. The two “F’s” of American innovation are about to become one: The collapse of oil prices portends a collapse of the shale boom. High-yield energy bond yields have soared from 5% to 12% in the past few months, and investors are fighting to get to the door. Most unconventional oil and gas projects are unprofitable at $60 a barrel, and that’s where oil will trade for the next year or two.Facebook is a clever gimmick, but it...

    Analysis of DNA from Richard III has thrown up a surprise: evidence of infidelity in his family tree. Scientists who studied genetic material from remains found in a Leicester car park say the finding might have profound historical implications. Depending on where in the family tree it occurred, it could cast doubt on the Tudor claim to the English throne or, indeed, on Richard's. The study is published in the journal Nature Communications. But the scientists would not be drawn on what meaning it might have - if any - for the current Royal Family, as it was still unknown...

    Ambassadors from five major European Union (EU) member states met with the Foreign Ministry's senior diplomat Alon Ushpiz in Jerusalem on Thursday, where they voiced opposition to the demolition of the homes of Arab terrorists. Germany, France, Britain, Italy and Spain were the five countries whose consul generals argued that such demolitions, which are meant as a deterrent for future terrorists and a punishment for heinous crimes, are "counterproductive." The ambassadors also denounced the attack on a Jerusalem synagogue this Tuesday in which four Jews and a Druze police officer were murdered by two Arab terrorists, reports Haaretz citing Israeli...

    ... Britain could become literally ungovernable after the election, with no single party or coalition of parties able to form a majority government. Current public opinion polls predict that neither the Conservatives nor the Labour Party will win enough seats to form a majority government even in a coalition with Liberal Democrats. Conservative-Liberal and Labour-Liberal majorities may both prove arithmetically impossible because of the rise of previously insignificant fringe parties. The Scottish Nationalists look able to boost their six seats in Parliament to anything between 20 and 50, largely at Labours expense. The United Kingdom Independence Party is threatening...

    Yesterday the UK Independence Party (UKIP) has gained its second seat in Britain's House of Commons, the lower House of Parliament, with Mark Reckless elected in the Rochester and Strood constituency, in Kent. The victory was obtained through a comfortable, though not dramatic, majority of 2,930 votes over the Conservative runner-up Kelly Tolhurst, a majority which many say may easily be lost again at the May 2015 general election for the UK Parliament. This, and especially UKIP's first Member of Parliament, Douglas Carswell, elected on 9 October 2014 in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, with a landslide of 60% of the vote,...

Bernadette Smyth, leader of the Precious Life group, was convicted on two counts of threatening Dawn Purvis, who runs British family planning service Marie Stopes Belfast branch. It is the only such clinic on the island of Ireland, where abortion is legal only in extreme cases where a womans life is deemed at risk from her pregnancy.

But I wish to write about the topic ofone of the announced speeches, by Richard Edmonds: "Bad Nenndorf a Nuremberg Trial for Allied War Criminals". The subject is described as "the tragedy of Bad Nenndorf where in the aftermath of WWII British torturers, many of them later emigrating to Israel, killed dozens of National Socialist sympathisers including girls belonging to the BDSM." Richard Edmonds is a British nationalist who is capable of criticising his country when necessary, who rightly doesn't believe that patriotism means defending the indefensible. I'd never...

    Child sexual exploitation has become the social norm in some towns, a report warns today. Schoolgirls are routinely being approached by much older men who ply them with alcohol, drugs and gifts as a way of grooming them for sex, says the study commissioned by police. Figures in the report suggested almost 650 children reported missing in towns across Greater Manchester in 2014 were at risk of child sexual exploitation or serious harm. But despite almost 13,000 reports of child sex abuse in the past six years, only 1,078 people were convicted, figures from Greater Manchester Police revealed. The reports...

It ended with an Islamic State fighter threatening a man they identified as an American named Peter Kassig.

The manuscript, a book of 34 religious songs, was given to Henry VIII as a lavish gift from a French diplomat in his early reign. Containing songs referencing Henry and his then-bride Catherine of Aragon, it is considered the most "luxurious" surviving diplomatic gift of its kind. It remained in the Royal Collection after the king's death, and was later given to the nation...

There has been no polling conducted on the Scottish question in the US, and it is doubtful that many Americans outside of the Washington policy bubble or the financial milieu of New York are particularly exercised by the outcome of a vote taking place over 3,000 miles away. They should be concerned, however. What happens in...

    We cant carry on like this. We just cant. Today the Government has announced its latest measures to tackle what it will describe as the Isil terror threat. Isil is a code word. It actually means Muslim terror threat. Last week the nation was confronted with the graphic, grotesque horror of the Rotherham child rape cases. They had, we were told, been perpetuated by Asian sex gangs. In this case the code word was Asian. They were in fact Muslim sex gangs. In July we were confronted with the Birmingham Trojan Horse school scandal. The werent Trojan Horse schools. They...

    KYIV, September 1 /Ukrinform/. Russia is rejecting consultations between the signatories of the Budapest memorandum, which foresees guarantees for Ukraine's territorial integrity. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said this at a joint press conference with his Norwegian counterpart Borge Brende, a Ukrinform correspondent reported. "We asked the signatories of the Budapest memorandum about urgent consultations. Of course, Russia does not want it," Klimkin said. He said that Ukraine was using all bilateral platforms to stop Russian aggression against Ukraine and holding respective negotiations in international organizations. "The international community should properly respond to this [Russian aggression against Ukraine]. We are...

    A man who admitted killing a knife-wielding robber who took his son's iPhone has been jailed for six years. Derek Grant, 38, confronted Patrick Bradley after the 29-year-old had held up his son Jordan in Greenock on 30 August last year. During the confrontation, Bradley stabbed Grant in the eye, after which Grant then fatally stabbed him. Grant was originally charged with murder but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of culpable homicide. At the High Court in Livingston judge Lord Boyd noted that Bradley "was a man of violence" and had "10 convictions for assault" prior to his death....

    British Prime Minister David Cameron announced Friday during a pointed press conference that U.K. authorities will soon begin revoking the passports of citizens traveling to Syria. The move is part of a series of new security measures being taken by the country after raising the terror threat level to "severe" as Cameron admitted the fight to end Islamist extremism may take decades, or even generations. "We are in the middle of a generational struggle against a poisonous & extremist ideology," Cameron declared. British authorities raised the terror threat level Friday to one below "critical," the highest alert, because it is...

    About eight miles from Sheffield in central England, the Metropolitan Borough of Rotherham is home to just over 258,000 residents for comparison, about as many as reside in its transatlantic twin town, Buffalo, N.Y. Its also home to a local government, child-social-services agency, and police department that effectively countenanced at least 1,400 instances of child sexual exploitation (CSE) between 1997 and 2013 and that is a conservative estimate, according to the , just released by Rotherhams Metropolitan Borough Council. How could police and local leaders ignore the victimization of so many children? In part, thank political correctness. Authored...

    An ICM poll on behalf of the Russian state news agency Rossiya Segodnya tested the public attitude towards the group ISIS (formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant or ISIL, and now calling itself Islamic State or IS) in 3 European countries: Great Britain, France and Germany. The news agency commissioning the poll may be Putin-friendly, but the polling firm ICM is as reputable as any. The survey asked people whether they had a favourable or unfavourable view of ISIS. In France, 16% say they have a favourable view. In the UK, 7% say they have...

    British diplomats in the US have been forced to apologise after revealing they were hosting a party to celebrate the anniversary of the burning of the White House. The British Embassy in Washington held a White House barbeque yesterday to mark the two hundredth anniversary of Britain capturing the US capital and setting fire to the Presidents iconic address. The Embassy even sent a message on Twitter from its official account with a photograph of a White House cake, flanked by British and American flags and surrounded by sparkler fireworks.

    American and British intelligence officials are eyeing a British-born rapper as the militant who beheaded journalist James Foley. A senior Western intelligence official told Fox News that 23-year-old London rapper Abdel Majed Abdel Bary is the suspect believed to be Foley's executioner. U.S. intelligence officials are not commenting publicly on the reports, but a well-placed source told Fox News that Bary's Egyptian-born father was extradited from London to the United States in 2012 for his alleged connection to Usama bin Laden and the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Africa. Bary traveled to Syria last year to fight with ISIS, the...

    For many, the British accent of the Islamist who executed American journalist James Foley was almost as shocking as the barbaric murder itself. In the days that follow, critics of American foreign policy will assert that the Islamic States audacious act was merely a symptom of blowback, the unintended consequence of Western military involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq. But above all, they will relentlessly stress that the participation of a European Muslim in foreign jihad marks a new development in domestic radicalization. And they will be deeply mistaken. It is easy to write off the Islamization of European Muslims as...

    EDINBURGH -- Campaigners for an independent Scotland are struggling to convince voters that their ancient nation will be better off if it leaves the U.K. Undecided Scots like Calum Carruthers, a 36-year-old father of two from Dunblane, a cathedral town near Edinburgh, are weighing the potential benefits and risks of ending the country's longtime partnership with England, Wales and Northern Ireland. "Emotionally, my instinct is it would be a good thing," said Mr. Carruthers, who works at a bank. But he added that the economic uncertainty is a huge concern, underscoring the dilemma many Scots are grappling with: "There's an...
