    Stickers emblazoned with “White Lives Matter” have been popping up around Georgia State’s campus for the past month, and the people behind them are currently unknown. For Georgia State students who remember the White Student Union controversy back in 2013, Patrick Sharp is an easy scapegoat. Sharp, however, refuted this claim, but does say that many people have approached him about the stickers, many of whom could have been the creator. “Many, if not most white students are tired of racial double standards but don’t want to have lunatics coming after them, as I have. So I don’t know who...

As a result, Marcus Ray Johnson will be given the regular meal: baked fish, cheese grits, beans, cole slaw, cookies and fruit punch.

    Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was called out on French television for a tweet he sent about the deadly terrorist attack in Paris on Friday. The former speaker and presidential candidate had speculated in a tweet that citizens with concealed carry permits for guns would have stopped the deadly shooting at a Paris concert hall. Gingrich's tweet prompted France 24's Mark Owen to say he found capitalizing on crises to advance a political agenda to be shameful. "Newt Gingrich, shame on you," Owen said.

    Obesity is still rising among American adults, despite more than a decade of public-awareness campaigns and other efforts to get people to watch their weight, and women have now overtaken men in the obese category, new government research shows. For the past several years, experts thought the nation's alarming, decades-long rise in obesity had leveled off. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a report Thursday that the obesity rate has climbed to nearly 38 percent of adults, up from 32 percent about a decade earlier.

This has often been at the request of the United States government during those many times when our ambassadors have been withdrawn from Damascus because of diplomatic disputes. Bashar and his father, Hafez, had a policy of not speaking to anyone at the American Embassy during those periods of estrangement, but they would talk to me.
