    AMSTERDAM (REUTERS) - Five siblings and a man believed to be their father were receiving medical treatment after Dutch police acting on a tip discovered them locked away in a secret room at an isolated farm, officials in the Netherlands said on Tuesday (Oct 15). The five, estimated at 18 to 25 years of age, and a man they identified as their ailing father were found near Ruinerwold, a village in the northern province of Drenthe. “We found six people living in a small space in the house which could be locked, not a cellar. It is unclear if they...

    Last week School District 65, which serves the racially, ethnically, and religiously diverse Evanston and Skokie, Illinois communities, went whole hog on disseminating a controversial ideology to captive audiences of other people’s children who came to school with open minds and hearts into which “progressives” poured poison masquerading as inarguable truth. District 65’s celebration of “LGBTQ+ Equity Week” offers a glimpse into the kind of pernicious indoctrination that the cunningly named “Inclusive Curriculum” bill signed into law by Governor J. B. Pritzker will bring to Illinois school children.

    The Connors family didn’t plan to be on the unmarked road. Originally from the United Kingdom, the two couples and their three young children were driving near the U.S.-Canada border on Oct. 3 during a visit to Vancouver when an animal ventured into the road, forcing them to make an unexpected detour. But before the family could get very far, flashing lights from a police car appeared in their rearview mirror. The officer that pulled them over was American — they had accidentally crossed the border. The vacationing family says this was the moment their trip turned into “the scariest...

    Senator Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) and Southbend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg criticized Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) during Tuesday evening’s debate over her refusal to admit that her Medicare for All plan would require an increase in middle class taxes. “Let me be clear on this. Costs will go up for the wealthy. They will go up for big corporations. And for middle-class families, they will go down,” Warren said when asked if her proposal would require an increase in middle class taxes. “I will not sign a bill into law that does not lower costs for middle-class families.” The...

    Planned Parenthood is plotting its revenge against the pro-life Trump administration with some fat political donations. The abortion mill, which insists that Americans not see it as a political entity but a necessity for women’s health, has pledged millions of dollars to defeating Donald Trump in 2020. Wow that’s a lot of money for political special interest. And here we thought they were penny pinching since being forced off of Title X subsidies. The Hill reported October 9 that a Planned Parenthood super PAC “announced a $45 million electoral campaign on Wednesday to defeat President Trump and Republicans in key...

    Unfortunately for us, Fox’s Empire seems to have more to say about politics than its hatred for Donald Trump. Even worse, it involves targeting and lecturing the supposedly "anti-choice," "pro-birth" mindset of pro-lifers. With this being the final season, I guess the show doesn’t care who it attacks anymore. The October 8 episode “You Broke Love” features a small scandal surrounding Tiana (Serayah), one of Empire Entertainment’s biggest stars. You see, Empire’s owner Andre (Trai Byers) recently had a harrowing experience where he nearly lost his wife and son during childbirth. By miracle, both survived, and Tiana congratulated the family...

    A hot, molten Earth would be around 5% larger than its solid counterpart. The difference between molten and solid rocky planets is important for the search of Earth-like worlds beyond our Solar System and the understanding of Earth itself. Rocky exoplanets that are around Earth-size are comparatively small, which makes them incredibly difficult to detect and characterise using telescopes. What are the optimal conditions to find such small planets that linger in the darkness? ... In the characterization of exoplanets outside our solar system and the search for potentially habitable worlds, researchers at the University of Bern are among the...
