    EMC Frontline, a charity that helps pregnant women and newborns is fighting New York state law that requires nonprofits and religious institutions to hire vermin. The "Boss Bill" prohibits employers from accessing (considering) child dismemberment / emulsification preferences. EMC founder Chris Slattery said the law represents "a fundamental effort to crush the pro-life movement" by targeting pro-life church institutions and nonprofits. New York City passed the same “murder incorporated” language shortly after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the statewide "Boss Bill" in November. Neither the Cuomo administration nor Mayor Bill de Blasio's office returned requests for comment.

    In some parts of the world they conjure wild memories from the 2010s. In Russia, they're more popular than weed.When a group of powerful, legal stimulants burst onto the drug scene in the UK and U.S. a decade ago, they caused a media frenzy. In Britain, mephedrone came virtually out of nowhere in 2009 to become a hugely popular drug with university students, clubbers and rural teenagers. Dubbed "meow meow" by newspapers and sold online as “plant food,” it was the “killer” drug that made people rip off their own scrotums. Yet behind the hype, to young people using it,...

    Javelin is a US-made, man-portable fire-and-forget anti-tank missile. It destroys bunkers, tank, trucks and low flying helicopters. When the gunner determines the target, coordinates are sent to the logic gob, which locks on the target. After launch and during flight the crew run like hell from the firing position. The missile is equipped with imaging infrared seeker to deliver an 8.4 kg tandem shaped charge. A precursor warhead detonates any ablative armor, then the primary warhead penetrates the base armor. Javelin is capable of destroying any main battle tank in the world today.

And she says she would never be tempted, despite the large amount of money involved. Rosie...

    The death of employees is a bitter loss for the entire nuclear center. The victims of the explosion developed special hardware and software; a leading electronic engineer, the head of the research and testing group a category 1 test engineer, and the deputy head of the research and testing department. It took the centre a year to arrange preparations for the tests in the water area of the White Sea. We put up appropriate stands, conducted the certifications. We conducted serious instruction works, prepared equipment, programs, techniques and discussed everything. It seemed that everything was prepared accordingly, adding that "the...

    Grisly photos circulated on social media purport to show the body of Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani, who was reportedly killed during a US air strike on a Baghdad airport early Friday morning. President Trump took credit for the drone strike Friday, saying Soleimani was planning to attack American diplomats. “Last night, at my direction, the United States military successfully executed a flawless precision strike that killed the number one terrorist anywhere in the world, Qassem Soleimani,” Trump stated. “Soleimani was plotting imminent and sinister attacks on American diplomats and military personnel, but we caught him in the act and terminated...

    Russian-Israeli relations are rapidly deteriorating as both countries engage in a tit for tat on visitor screening The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics had 15 “republics” and countless “autonomous regions”, but really only two republics mattered: the Russian Federation and Ukraine. The rest were window dressing. The USSR had only three capital cities that mattered, Moscow, Leningrad (St. Petersburg today), and Kiev. The rest were “provinces”.

    JERUSALEM, Nov. 20 (Xinhua) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's challenger, Benny Gantz, announced Wednesday he had failed to form a government by the midnight deadline, increasing prospects for the third elections in Israel in less than a year. Gantz, leader of the centrist party of Blue and White and Israel's former military chief, accused Netanyahu of refusing to drop demand for parliamentary protectons. Netanyahu was tasked by the president with forming a new governing coalition ahead of Gantz because he was supported by a larger right-wing bloc. But, like Gantz, he failed to gain a 61-seats majority needed to...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Friday that President Trump’s decision to switch his primary residence from New York to Florida was likely a move to avoid releasing his tax returns. “My guess is that he was advised by his lawyers that it would help his case not to release his taxes to the Manhattan District Attorney if he could say he was no longer a resident of the state of New York,” Cuomo told MSNBC. “I could see it as a legal tactic, and the timing is coincidental.” Cuomo added that since many people from New York and...
