    University of Arizona wants to ‘maximize free speech in the classroom’ The correct way to tell a classmate he said something offensive is to say “ouch,” and his correct response, “oops.” The University of Arizona’s College of Humanities is offering such “suggestions” to faculty in a new 20-page handbook titled Diversity and Inclusiveness in the Classroom, credited to Vice Provost for Inclusive Excellence Jesús Trevińo.

    President Obama had to deal with a small domestic crisis at the White House -- a family friend was bitten by Sunny, the First Family's 4-year-old dog. We're told the incident occurred Monday when the 18-year-old was visiting the White House. Sources connected to the girl tell us she went to pet and kiss Sunny, and the dog bit her on the face. Sunny -- a female Portuguese Water Dog -- left a nasty gash under the girl's eye. We're told the Obamas' family physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, checked her out and decided she needed stitches.

    A man's craving for metal that led him to swallow 40 knives may sound bizarre, but such strange cravings can be symptoms of an eating disorder in which people ingest anything from dirt to talcum powder. The 42-year-old man in India said he had consumed the knives over a 2-month period, according to CNN. Some of the knives were folded up when the man ingested them, but some were unfolded, and extended to about 7 inches (18 centimeters) long. The man required a 5-hour operation to remove the knives. Because some of the knives were open, the man was bleeding...

    A man in India spent two months swallowing knives and had 40 of them surgically removed from his stomach, according to the doctor who led the operation. "He had a wild urge to consume metal. Even for us, the experienced surgeons, it was frightening," Dr. Jatinder Malhotra told CNN. "We were so nervous... a small mistake could have taken the patient's life. In my 20 years of practice, I have never seen anything like it." Malhotra said it took his team about two days to form a diagnosis and surgery plan. ... Malhotra said they found foldable knives, which when...

    DALLAS — Fire officials say more than 30 people attending a Tony Robbins event in Dallas have been treated for burns after the motivational speaker encouraged them to walk on hot coals. Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says five people were taken to a hospital Thursday night and that emergency personnel treated the others at the scene for burns to their feet and lower extremities. The hot coals were spread outside the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center as part of a Robbins seminar called "Unleash the Power Within." The event continues through Sunday. Representatives for Robbins didn't immediately return messages...

    The Omaha woman bitten by a three-legged tiger at the city’s zoo will pay a $250 fine after pleading guilty to trespassing. Jacqueline Eide, 33, entered the plea at a hearing Monday morning. As part of a plea deal worked out with prosecutors, two other counts – contributing to the delinquency of a child and criminal mischief – were dropped. Eide's fingers on her left hand were injured when she sneaked into the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium about 4 a.m. Nov. 1 and tried to pet a tiger named Mai, prosecutors have said. The 18-year-old Malayan tiger arrived at...

    A Romanian woman tore off her husband's left testicle after he failed to give her flowers on International Women's Day and then refused to help with the housework.

The mother-of-one grabbed hold of her husband's testicles and pulled violently during the argument. Mr Popa's left testicle was left hanging out of his scrotum after the skin was ripped apart. He was forced to undergo emergency surgery to repair...

    Thank You, Mitt Trump's favorables just rose again, as did the veil you willingly wore while being used by the corrupt political establishment who can't afford to lose their power in liberal D.C. Your speech was so silly and contradictory it confirmed the reasons Trump received tens of thousands more votes than you did in your own home state that you governed. Silly man. Could the establishment really not find anyone credible in their holier-than-thou movement to spew the deception you regurgitated today on tv? Independent, commonsense conservative patriots: now it's our time to ramp it up, to prove even...

    That brings us to Tuesday's interview in which Schilling devoted about eight minutes (starting near the 28-minute mark) to talking about Clinton, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and the various things that scare him for the future of America. The interview, though, was at its most provocative when Schilling railed on Clinton. "If she’s allowed to get to the general election before she’s in prison I’ll be stunned and upset,” Schilling said. “Because I think she’s shown her true colors all along the way and I’ll ask you this: Do you see her being anything even remotely different than what we’ve...

    The Dallas Morning News on Friday endorsed Republican presidential candidate John Kasich over home-state rival Ted Cruz for the GOP nomination. "As much as we'd like to see a Texan in the White House, we fear that Cruz's brand of politics is more about disruption than governing and threatens to take the Republican Party to a dark place," editorial members of the influential Texas newspaper wrote. "As we've written before, continuing obstructionist paths might excite primary voters, but it won't benefit the nation or the conservative cause," they added. Editors of the Dallas Morning News wrote that state-level public servants...
