    Almost every top official in a remote South Texas city was arrested on Thursday under a detailed federal indictment that accuses them of taking bribes from contractors and sending city workers to help an illegal gambling operator nicknamed Mr T. Crystal City's mayor, city manager, mayor pro tempore, one of three current councilmen and a former councilman were all arrested under an indictment obtained by the U.S. attorney's office in San Antonio, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney said. A second councilman is already charged in a separate case with smuggling Mexican immigrants. That leaves just one councilman not facing...

    Her odyssey began when she fell in love against her family's wishes and ran off to marry her boyfriend. Hours after the marriage, her father and uncle sweet-talked her into their car and took her to a spot along a riverbank to murder her for her defiance — an "honor killing." First they beat Saba, then her uncle held her as her own father pointed a pistol at her head and pulled the trigger.

Scary times at the company without a seasoned leader. While their efforts are admirable it is very hard to even interview people who are 'white' which makes things challenging," this person said.Sanchez is known for some strong views...

    Gunmen disguised as police opened fire on boxing fans at a Dublin hotel Friday, killing one man and wounding two others in an attack that could reflect tensions within Ireland's top cocaine-smuggling gang. Fans attending the weigh-in ceremonies for a Dublin boxing event fled in terror as two gunmen wearing police uniforms opened fire inside the lobby of the Regency Hotel. Witnesses inside the ballroom hosting the ceremony saw two other men in the crowd, including one disguised as a woman, running away holding handguns. It wasn't clear whether they opened fire, were working as scouts for the other gunmen,...

    When health care company Theranos announced that it could conduct dozens of blood tests with a finger prick, it sounded too good to be true. Once valued at a staggering $9 billion and greeted by the press with fawning magazine features, Theranos’ troubles have slowly been coming into focus since last fall. The company claimed last year that its proprietary technology can “perform hundreds of tests, from standard to year, from a pinprick and tiny sample of blood,” rather than from blood drawn through a vein in the arm. But last week, after months of heightened scrutiny, the government placed...

    Gentrification has been coming fast to Brooklyn's Crown Heights neighborhood. The influx of wealthier, white residents is being reflected in the hallways of Public School 705. The elementary school is still half black and more than a quarter Hispanic, but Principal Sandra Soto has seen enough change to worry that P.S. 705 was on the cusp of a phenomenon that has occurred elsewhere in the city, where poorer, minority children disappear as their families are priced out of the neighborhood. "The next thing you know I have a whole slew of middle-class white families," she said, while black and Hispanic...

    The Zika virus, a disease suspected of causing birth defects which spread across much of Latin America in 2015, has now reached the United States. A young girl who traveled from Los Angeles County to El Salvador was infected with the mosquito-transmitted disease, according to the local department of public health. The girl has now recovered, but it’s not the adults infected with the disease who are especially at risk—it’s the unborn. The Zika virus is linked to microcephaly, a birth defect where the infant is born with an abnormally small brain. The majority of children born with the disease...

Police found the abused child in the closet, malnourished and covered in bruises, scars and blisters, after a man who had gone to the apartment for sex tipped them off, reported a Fox affiliate.

    A Swedish school described as being ‘good’ ten years ago is now in “chaos” and prone to rioting as order among the ‘diverse’ student body has broken down. The condition of the Sjumilaskolan school in Gothenburg, Sweden, has been revealed in a shocking government report based on visits conducted at the end of last year by the school inspectorate. While the Swedish main-stream media has stuck to reporting the one million kronor penalty the local authority faces if they don’t turn the school around, and the seriously low academic achievement of the institution, examination of the report itself reveals a...

On Monday, she shared a Facebook video and confirmed that she will not be attending or watching the live show. (Last year, only white actors received nominations too.)

    Apple's board is telling investors to reject a new diversity proposal, calling it "unduly burdensome." The company, like other big tech firms, has been criticized in recent years for being mostly male and predominantly white. Last year, Apple CEO Tim Cook sang the praises of a diverse workforce. He said diversity is a "readily solvable issue" that can be fixed. But Apple's board of directors opposes a new proposal to increase diversity among its board and senior management. The proposal, submitted by Apple shareholder Antonio Avian Maldonado, would require an accelerated recruitment policy to change the company's organizational makeup. The...

    Since the scores of New Year's Eve sexual attacks on German women by hundreds of men identified as Arab or North African, the left in Germany has faced a dilemma: which to fight for first -- women's human rights or multiculturalism? This was the same dilemma that faced British authorities between 1997 and 2013. During those six years at least 1,400 girls from the age of 11 in just one English city (Rotherham, population 275,000) were raped by gangs of men, nearly all of whom were immigrants (mostly from Pakistan) or their sons. But British authorities kept silent. Why? In...

    America's air traffic control towers suffer from a stunning lack of diversity--that's the official position of the Obama Administration's FAA, which quietly moved to abolish merit-based testing for air traffic controllers two years ago in an attempt to boost the number of women and minorities in the career field. Blacks and Hispanics apparently don't score as high on the Air Traffic Selection and Training (AT-SAT) exam, the test the FAA once used to judge an applicant's job knowledge. That's not really a shocker, considering the fact that blacks and Hispanics score lower on every standardized test known to man, including...

    The Department of Education has started requiring universities that receive federal funding for Middle East Studies centers to report on how their programs are including diverse perspectives and a wide range of views. This is a very important first step to ensure that Middle East Studies programs do not succumb to political one-sidedness. For several years, critics have charged that many of these programs have become highly politicized, monolithically anti-Israel sources of miseducation and bias. The new requirement sends a welcome signal to universities that the Department is now looking more closely at this issue, although there is still more...

    A female firefighter who has repeatedly failed the fitness test is being given an unprecedented seventh try. Wendy Tapia, 34, was allowed to conditionally graduate from the FDNY's Randall's Island training academy in May 2013 - despite failing the required running test, New York Post reports. Typically firefighters who fail the exam at the end of academy training don't graduate and are forced to re-take the entire course in the next academy class. But Tapia, blaming a foot injury for her failure, was allowed to take it again not once, but five more times over the next six months.

There are not enough poor people living in middle class neighborhoods to suit the political left. Not enough blacks in white neighborhoods. Not enough Hispanics here, not enough Asians there. Nowhere in the Constitution does it grant the federal government the power to dictate such things. But places that do not mix and match people the way...

    Universities and colleges often make rapt headlines for political radicalism, but a diverse, well-rounded higher education may be more available than you think. Backlash against liberal institutions have essentially been on the rise since conservative giant William F. Buckley, Jr. published God and Man at Yale in 1951. The National Review founder and publisher lamented the worldview of his alma mater in the famous book declaring, "The academic community has in it the biggest concentration of alarmists, cranks and extremists this side of the giggle house." Heterodox Academy, whose mission is to "increase viewpoint diversity in the academy," offers some...
