    MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - A Live 5 News investigation has revealed there are no laws in South Carolina regulating doggy daycare businesses, a finding that comes after a Mount Pleasant woman's pet dog died at a Mount Pleasant doggy daycare. Judith Von says she regularly boarded her two year old dog Zane at Paws in Paradise on Johnnie Dodds Boulevard. She says there were no problems until August 5, 2015. She says she dropped off Zane at 9 a.m. Von says she returned at 5 p.m. to pick him up and says she was met by the owner. "She...

    ...One thing I learned in the 2012 election cycle, it was about voter fraud. My conservative warrior associate, Katherine Engelbrecht, and her organization, True the Vote, took up the mantle against the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, Gertrude Walker, who admitted to sending “questionable” results to the Florida Secretary of State. It was somewhat disheartening that the Florida Secretary of State and Attorney General sat back, watched the news reports, and did nothing. With that background: ...“Voter Fraud?

Founded in late 2014, NextEV has its design headquarters in Munich, a software hub in San Jose, and most of its engineers in Shanghai. “This time last year we were less than 10 people,” said Leach in an exclusive interview with IEEE Spectrum. “Now we’re over 1000, and by the end of this year, we’ll be over 2500.

    An East Coast abortionist and OB-GYN who delivered thousands of babies and aborted many more, died on April 22 at a family home in Maryland, according to the Washington Post. Thomas H. Gresinger, 82, died of cancer, according to the report. He worked for the northern Virginia abortion facility Falls Church Healthcare Center up until last year, the report states. Though he received an “Unsung Hero” award from the National Abortion Federation, Gresinger and the abortion facilities where he worked have a record of endangering women’s lives. Gresinger was named in a lawsuit in the 1990s after a woman said...

Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s campaign supervisor, a man who has navigated the often turbulent waters of national politics for several decades, is likely not a bit surprised, for it was Manafort who just a few short weeks ago put the fear of God into a collection of anti-Trump GOP Establishment figures during a posh resort retreat in Florida – a meeting which it can now be said altered the trajectory of the...

    When you first wrap your head around its plot, the new film Captain America: Civil War seems to have abandoned most of the pointed political content of Marvel's 2006 comics series Civil War, on which it's based. ("Loosely based"? Let's say "semi-loosely based.") In the books, the conflict between Captain America and Iron Man is fundamentally about the Registration Act that would require superheroes to abandon their secret identities, be registered and tracked, and become government employees subject to oversight. The Act follows a tragic series of events that are not actually the fault of The Avengers; in a way...

    In the southeastern Chinese city of Quanzhou, a well-known Buddhist monk named Fu Hou has been mummified and encased in gold leaf. According to The Associated Press, it's "a practice reserved for holy men in some areas with strong Buddhist traditions" and was done to honor Fu Hou's dedication to the religion. Li Ren, the Chongfu Temple's abbot, said that after the 94-year-old's death in 2012, "the monk's body was washed, treated by two mummification experts, and sealed inside a large pottery jar in a sitting position," according to the wire service. Video published by The Daily Telegraph showed the...

    Unlike professional athletes, actors (Gene Hackman) and some novelists (Philip Roth), visual artists don’t usually retire. Or if they do, they don’t announce it. But in 2011, Maurizio Cattelan — one of the most expensive living artists, then at the peak of his career and the subject of an uproarious retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum — told the world that he was finished, fatigued both creatively and by the velocity of the money-fueled art world. During the last couple of years, though, Mr. Cattelan found himself itching to make things in three dimensions again. “Actually, it’s even more of a...

The utter failure of the Bush brand surprised some people, given that Republican voters still generally say that they like Bush. But this ignores the role both Bushes now play in conservative history — as sellouts. George H.W. Bush's acceptance of a tax hike (forced on him by a Democratic Congress) is the Genesis story of the anti-tax movement. George W. Bush's record in office, for...

Trump does not mince words, and you have to respect his forthrightness. What each of these solutions has in common is a heavy-handed government that imposes its will at the price of consumer freedom. What right does a White House staffer have to tell you what you can buy and the extra price you have to pay if you choose the wrong product? Your freedom to trade — to buy what you want — is what’s...

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory claims that was not the case for The Boss's scheduled Greensboro concert — the April 10 gig he canceled in opposition to HB2 or the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act. McCrory implied on the John Boy and Billy Big radio show Tuesday that Springsteen actually nixed the show not in support of transgender and progressive ideals, but in protection of his own ego — McCrory said only 8,000...

Much like engineers are designing self-driving cars, Wednesday’s research is part of a move toward autonomous surgical robots, removing the surgeon’s hands from certain tasks that a machine might perform all by itself. No, doctors wouldn’t leave the bedside — they’re supposed to supervise, plus they’d handle the rest of the surgery. Nor is the device ready for operating rooms. But in small tests using pigs, the robotic arm...

    Four men have been rescued after spending nearly a month adrift in the Pacific surviving on fish after their boat was blown off course by a storm. The men, given a clean bill of health on arrival in the Marshall Islands, were dropped off in the capital Majuro by a fishing trawler which found their small wooden boat several hundred kilometres (miles) south of the city. Tatika Ukenio, Boiti Tetinauiko, Bonibai Akau and Moamoa Kamwea told officials they left their home in Kiribati, an island nation more than 650 kilometres (400 miles) from the Marshalls, on March 23.

    President Barack Obama’s deputies have told the North Carolina Governor that all single-sex public bathrooms — including those in K-12 schools — must be opened to people of both sexes by Monday to prevent “discrimination” against the roughly 1-in-2,400 American adults who say they’re transgender.

    Oh dear foreigners – the Piers Morgans of the world, if you will – what is your sick obsession with America’s Second Amendment? Enter Canadian “celebrity” Nicole Arbour. The 30-year-old actress, choreographer, comedian, dancer, musician, singer and writer hails from Hamilton, Ontario and despite her education at Humber College, apparently still doesn’t understand that the United States is not Canada. In her ignorant, nonsensical video, she says, “It’s somewhere in the American constitution that everybody has the right to bear arms. Yes that’s in the Constitution, but no one seems to keep in mind that sh*t was written a long...

    The art depicts an artist drawing Mohammed with the dialogue, “‘You can’t draw me.’ ‘That’s why I draw you.’” After Breitbart News did a story on the auction, the bidding jumped above $10,000. Fawstin’s picture won the first annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest organized by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer for the American Freedom Defense Initiative. The First Amendment-themed event was attacked by terrorists with AK-47s, although the terrorists were shot dead by an alert officer before they could attack the event.

    The southeastern United States has been hit by a series of strange unexplained quakes - most recently, the 2011 magnitude-5.8 earthquake near Mineral, Virginia that shook the nation's capital. Researchers have been baffled, believing the areas should be relatively quiet in terms of seismic activity, as it is located in the interior of the North American Plate, far away from plate boundaries where earthquakes usually occur. Now, they believe the quakes could be caused by pieces of the Earth's mantle breaking off and sinking into the planet.
