    An Afghan insurgent group has released video of a kidnapped North American couple, featuring two children apparently born to them in captivity. The footage from the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network shows Canadian Joshua Boyle and American Caitlan Coleman with two young boys, who appeared healthy. In the clip Ms Coleman begs for an end to their "Kafkaesque nightmare". The couple were abducted in Afghanistan in 2012 during a camping trip, while she was pregnant. The insurgent group is demanding the release of three of its prisoners in Afghanistan.

    Burning Man founder Larry Harvey has countered criticism of the lack of racial diversity at the festival by saying that part of the reason there are so few black attendees (known as burners) is that I dont think black folks like to camp as much as white folks. In an interview with the Guardian, Harvey vowed that were not going to set racial quotas, defended the presence of rich Silicon Valley executives at the festival, and said he will personally go undercover this week to investigate the luxurious camps of ultra-wealthy tech bosses said by the New York Times to...

I want to be able to make and receive phone calls, access the internet, shoot video, edit video, and load video.

    The storied Appalachian Trail, which begins 2,190 miles away in Georgia, ends here, with a final scramble up Maines highest peak some of it nearly vertical, much of it blocked by boulders. For those who have trekked five or six months, Katahdins iconic summit is an exhausting challenge with a rewarding end.It takes your breath away, said Chuck Wood, 64, a hiker from Norristown, Pa. Just to be there, its like an audience with the Lord.But that experience is now in jeopardy.

    Two California teachers who were already in hot water are now in worse trouble after authorities said the women plied male students with cocaine and had illegal sex with one boy during a supposed camping trip. Melody Lippert, 38, and Michelle Ghirelli, 30, have been charged with unlawful sexual intercourse and giving controlled substances to minors. The pair also gave alcohol to the minors during a two-day camping trip in December, according to a statement from the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

    The Grateful Dead’s three-night farewell shows don’t seem like they’re shaping up to be a great time for the band’s most dedicated followers. Over the weekend, we reported that tickets for the event were being scalped for as high at $10,000. And now, Chicago’s police and fire departments have decided not to let Deadheads camp out or park overnight on the land in front of Soldier Field. Earlier this year, a petition circulated around asking the venue to waive their usual policy. “We took this seriously and did not want to dismiss it,” Luca Serra, a spokesman for Soldier Field,...

    Two days before the date his boss had predicted as the Apocalypse, Matt Tuter made an auspicious decision: He canceled the skywriters. Family Radio, the Oakland-based evangelical network run by Harold Camping, had already spent more than $5 million on 5,000 billboards announcing Judgment Day -- May 21, 2011 -- according to tax documents. Now, Tuter said, he feared that the airplanes, which were to inscribe the warnings in the skies above major U.S. cities, were one expense too many for a business operating as if there really would be no tomorrow. Two years later, Camping's predictive powers have been...

He also issued an apology to listeners, admitting that he was wrong. "We have learned the very painful lesson that all of creation is in God's hands and He will end time in His time, not ours!" a statement on Family Radio's website reads. "We humbly recognize that God may not tell His people the date when Christ will return, any more than He tells anyone the date they will die physically." Camping,...

But both astronomers and experts on Mesoamerican history say the Mayan apocalypse is likely to be another in a long line of failed doomsdaysAccording to the Maya Long Count calendar, the winter solstice of 2012 Dec. 21, 2012 is the end of a b'ak'tun, a 144,000-day cycle that has repeated 12 times since the mythical Maya creation date.

Wearing a bathrobe and using a walker outside of his Alameda, Calif., home, the doomsday preacher chuckled as reporters tried to get comments from him Thursday regarding the supposed Rapture that, as of Friday afternoon, appears not to be happening. However, Camping did say the Oct. 21 rapture would be "quiet." Months after Camping's second prediction of a May 21 Judgment Day, the doomsday "prophet" said that...

You may recall the excitement earlier this year when Grand Rapids received a visit from the followers of Family Radio Worldwide, a California-based Christian group led by 89-year-old Harold Camping, who were traveling the country to loudly and colorfully proclaim Judgment Day's imminence. It didn't happen. OR DID IT!? The conspicuous lack of a world-ending earthquake left Camping and his followers scrambling to explain why...

    I believe that May 21, 2011 will prove to have been a watershed day for millions of people, regardless of the fact that Jesus didnt come back to rapture His flock, and commence the judgment of the earth, as predicted by Harold Camping. Evidently the calculations of the self-confessed life long Bible student, and civil engineer didnt quite add up. I hope you dont think I am being facetious about it, because there is nothing humorous in this at all. In fact, I have no doubt that though things didnt work out as some anticipated, many lives will never be...
  • Broadcaster silent as Judgment Day hours tick by (where is Harold Camping ?)

    (Reuters) - With no sign his forecast of Judgment Day arriving on Saturday has come true, the 89-year-old California evangelical broadcaster and former civil engineer behind the pronouncement seemed to have gone silent. Family Radio, the Christian stations network headed by Harold Camping which had spread his message of an approaching doomsday, was on Saturday playing recorded church music and devotional messages unrelated to the apocalypse. Camping previously made a failed prediction Jesus Christ would return to Earth in 1994. In his latest pronouncement, he had said doomsday would begin in Asia, but with midnight local time come and gone...
  • The Bible vs. Harold Camping; Winner- The Bible

    Well, Harold Camping's prophesied Judgement Day has raged through Europe and is headed here to NY... with no sign at all that Mr. Camping's devoted little band of followers will be vindicated. A lot of those people spent thousands of dollars spreading Mr. Camping's false teachings. Some of them left jobs and lost families. It's sad, and it's a situation made much worse, in my eyes, by Camping's billboards and messages about May 21, 2011 that "The Bible Guarantees it!" - it does no such thing. Mr. Camping guaranteed it. Mr. Camping's cultish insistence that his followers leave their churches...

    Could Jesus Christ Return Tomorrow? article by Gary Petty A little-noticed prophecy in the biblical book of Revelation shows that Jesus Christ's return couldn't take place without a revolutionary change in global mass communications—a change that has taken place only in the last few years. I have in my office a newspaper from 1858. The front-page story is about how a mob in Lexington, Kentucky, broke into a jail and lynched an unfortunate prisoner. On the second page is a report about an upstart political candidate named Abraham Lincoln.In the 1850s it could take weeks, even months, for a news event...
  • BREAKING. 10.0+ Earthquake in American Samoa - 6PM There

    USGS is reporting a 10.0+ earthquake, the largest ever reported in the islands of and around American Samoa. It seems to be splitting the fault and creating rift, moving Eastward. It is predicted it will go around the world. Just kidding- can we officially call Camping a fraud now?
