  • Guide to growing up gay accused of suggesting 'pedophile kind of behaviour' by parents

    Author James Dawson has received backlash from parents for his guide to growing up LGBT, This Book Is Gay, claiming they no longer feel comfortable taking their children to the library if his book is on the shelves, reports The Guardian. In Wasilla, Alaska, after a 10-year-old boy picked up the book from the juvenile non-fiction section of the public library, his mother was "shocked to find it contained frank drawings and descriptions of gay sex acts inside". The mother launched an appeal after she was told by the local librarian that it was appropriately shelved, leading to dozens of...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump's support among Republicans has dropped 12 points in less than a week, marking the real estate mogul's biggest decline since he vaulted to the top of the field in July, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. Trump was the favorite of 31 percent of Republicans in a rolling poll in the five days ended on Nov. 27. That was down from a peak of 43 percent registered on Nov. 22. The dip follows criticism of Trump for comments he made in the aftermath of the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people and...

    Two residents and a dog were saved from potentially dangerous rushing water situations early Friday morning in McKinney. Shortly after 3 a.m., emergency personnel were dispatched to find a man trapped in a tree off Eldorado Parkway near College Street. Rushing water had swept up the man, whom authorities did not identify, and his dog. The man called 911 from the tree, unsure of his exact location but relaying to dispatchers that he was scared the water would overtake him and he'd lose service to his phone, according to Stacie Durham, spokeswoman for the McKinney Fire Department.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 11-24-15 | Eric Metaxas
    The Thanksgiving tale of the Pilgrims and the Indian has an astonishing, less well-known back story. The story of how the Pilgrims arrived at our shores on the Mayflower—and how a friendly Patuxet native named Squanto showed them how to plant corn, using fish as fertilizer—is well-known. But Squanto’s full story is not, as National Geographic’s new Thanksgiving miniseries, “Saints & Strangers,” shows. That might be because some details of Squanto’s life are in dispute. The important ones are not, however. His story is astonishing, even raising profound questions about God’s role in American history. Every Thanksgiving we remember that,...

    Natural disasters triggered by climate change are increasing in frequency and hitting farmers in the developing world especially hard, threatening food security and employment in the poorest regions, the United Nations said in a new report. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) report, called Impact of Disasters on Agriculture and Food Security, was released Thursday, four days before the official start of the Paris climate-change conference, where the developing world will seek hundreds of billions of dollars in funding from wealthy countries to adapt to, and overcome losses from, potentially catastrophic climate change. Concerns that climate-related losses could rise...

    The celebration of Thanksgiving may be a beloved tradition, but one group of Native Americans has revealed what the holiday really means to them in a moving video series that dispels the historical inaccuracies and stereotypes associated with their culture. As part of's One Word video series, a group of men and women from the Native American community have shared their thoughts on the words: Thanksgiving, Christopher Columbus, reservation and redskins. And while many of the men and women agree that the 'redskins' is an 'offensive' and 'racist' term, the group shared different opinions about what it means to...

    "World's Oldest" Cognac Opened in Poland What is thought to be the world's oldest Cognac sold at auction was opened in Poland recently to inaugurate a partnership between a Swiss watchmaker and a corporate collector. The Gautier Cognac was purchased by collector Wealth Solutions in 2014 during an auction of rare wines and liquors organised by Bonhams Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers in New York. The bottle itself dates back to 1762 and was recognised as the oldest Cognac sold at public auction to-date when it went under the hammer. It was opened during a ceremony to mark the partnership...

    The man walked into a butcher's shop in Armley, Leeds, and asked to buy a large number of pigs' heads and trotters so he could "desecrate as many mosques as possible". Pig meat - including bacon - is frowned upon by Muslims, who consider pigs unclean. The incident is one of a number of Islamophobic incidents reported in the wake of the Paris attacks, in which 130 people were killed by Islamist extremists. Kauser Jan, chair of the Leeds Muslim Community Safety Forum, said: "I was contacted by a councillor who had been called by a butcher in Armley."

    Note: This "Thanksgiving classic" first appeared in 2013 but is well worth a review. American tradition sets aside every fourth Thursday in November as a time for people to thank God for their blessings, eat too much, and toss the football around. Liberals have started a new tradition in recent years that I don’t like nearly as much—pushing their political agenda at the dinner table. In days gone by, civility dictated that politics was not on the menu. But no longer! Liberals now consider Thanksgiving the perfect opportunity to get preachy with their loved ones.

    LONDON -- Justin Trudeau has reacquainted himself with the Queen, this time as the prime minister of Canada rather than the son of Canada's parliamentary leader. Trudeau, making his second whirlwind tour on the international summit circuit in as many weeks, is at Buckingham Palace. Trudeau is travelling with his wife, Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, and two of their three youngsters, Ella-Grace and Hadrien, are along for the trip. The Queen also met Sophie and the two youngest Trudeau children. Afterwards, Trudeau is set to deliver a speech at Canada House in Trafalgar Square, followed by a sit-down with Prime Minister David...

    Has Vladimir Putin finally overreached? The Russian president is confronting several simultaneous crises. Over the weekend, Ukrainian activists blew up high-voltage transmission towers and cut off electricity supplies to Russian-held Crimea. In St. Petersburg, his home city, on Tuesday a column of 600 heavy trucks was crawling toward the city government building to protest tolls on Russian roads (a son of a close Putin friend has a financial interest in the system). And on the Turkey-Syria border, the Turkish air force downed a Russian bomber. After annexing Crimea and fomenting unrest in eastern Ukraine, stamping out domestic opposition, deploying his...

    The dogfight did not come out of the blue. For days, Russian jets had been roaring along the Turkish border, bombing the hills on the Syrian side in support of an Assad regime attack on rebel forces. Around 9 a.m. local time Tuesday, the Turks decided they had had enough. As two Sukhoi-24 fighter bombers flew over a spit of Turkish territory that juts into Syria, they scrambled two of their own fighters and issued warnings. The Turkish jets, F-16s sold to Ankara by their close NATO allies the United States, engaged and shot down one of the SU-24s. The...

    Trump's Appeal as American as Andrew Jackson After the Paris attack, conventional wisdom held that Republican voters would finally turn away from political outsiders and reward candidates representing sobriety and experience. No one stopped to consider that, actually, voters might be drawn to the guy who memorably said of ISIS that he would “bomb the [expletive] out of them.” Not only has Donald Trump not been hurt by Paris, he has bumped up in the aftermath (Ben Carson, on the other hand, has indeed dropped). The cliché about Trump is that he’s defying the laws of political gravity. If Trump...

"What's your name, b**** a** n*****?" said one of the gentlemen, obviously a skilled linguist. The homeless man eventually got up and walked away, which was admirable. One can only imagine the amount of self-restraint required to keep from smashing those thugs' faces in. However our story didn't end there. Another man walked up and confronted the two thugs. After conversing with them, he promptly punches the lead thug in the...

    Given that the deadline to file for the New Hampshire ballot was three days ago, I’m not sure why the Globe felt this was necessary. Maybe they wanted to show people how soft Trump’s support in the state really is, despite all of the polls there showing him leading? If so, it would have been nice to make that point when Romney was still viable as a potential candidate. Right now, looking at Rubio’s relative weakness in New Hampshire, I’ll bet a lot of establishmentarians who are worried about Trumpmentum would think hard about Romney 3.0 as a last-ditch bid...

In the novel, the Axis won WW II and they rule the world. In the TV version, there are alternate realities, one in which the Axis rules and one which is our world.

    Linda Ronstadt - Poor Poor Pitiful Me "Poor Poor Pitiful Me" is a rock song written and originally recorded by Warren Zevon in 1976. It is best known as one of Linda Ronstadt's signature hits from 1978. Country music singer Terri Clark scored a hit in 1996 with her own cover of the song. There have also been many other versions of this song. In keeping with Warren Zevon's sardonic lyrical style, the song's verses deal with a failed suicide, domestic abuse, and a brush with sadomasochism. The song first appeared on Zevon's 1976 self-titled solo album. It is reputed...

The suspect is developmentally disabled, and prosecutors say that presents a challenging legal issue. Three-year-old Matthew Svoboda was playing at the park Tuesday when things got ugly. The boy's family claims a 27-year-old man started attacking the child without warning. "He pulled him off that with one arm and then he started hitting him, either with a closed fist or an open hand," said Matthew's brother, Toby Svoboda. The boy's mother, Isabel Svoboda, watched...

Suicides and deaths from drug overdose and alcohol abuse are being blamed. Deaths rates for other races have continued to fall, as they have for whites 65 and older. But death rates for whites 35 to 44 have been level recently, they’re beginning to turn up for whites 55 to 64, and - most strikingly - death rates for whites ages 45 to 54 have risen by half a percent per year...
