    Surgeon General Jerome Adams has become the latest member of the Trump administration to raise eyebrows during remarks at the daily coronavirus briefings. Speaking to reporters on Friday, and directing his comments at communities of color, Adams spoke about the social distancing guidelines, encouraging everyone to adhere to them for the time being. "If you must go out, maintain six feet of distance between you and everyone else and wear a mask if you're going to be within six feet of others. Wash your hands more often than you'd ever dreamed possible. Avoid alcohol, tobacco and drugs. And call your...

    White privilege is a phrase that can be heard in many conversations surrounding social justice issues across the country. Now, it will be the subject of a new stage play coming to Marquette University that opens Labor Day weekend. Malaina Moore is the mastermind behind the "White Privilege" stage play. She’s a junior theater major, also working on a minor in social justice and welfare. The play started as a class assignment. Her personal experiences helped shape the story, but so did her followers on social media, who she asked about while privilege: “The feedback was a lot. Then I...

    The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church's "Eggstravaganza!" They were also "troubled" by images of a bunny rabbit. "It really bothered my two kids," parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. "My son was like, 'Dad, I really don't feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.' "

    GARDEN CITY - Hang a shining star upon the highest bough. A Christmas tree will be added to the futuristic Santa photo area of Roosevelt Field mall following an outcry from Long Islanders. Photos showing this year's photo-staging area devoid of any Christmas decorations went viral online. As News 12 has reported, a petition was started urging mall management to drop its new set-up, dubbed "Glacier," and instead return to a more traditional holiday display. Many customers had threatened to boycott Roosevelt Field and do their holiday shopping elsewhere. Following News 12's report, mall management responded. "Key elements are still...

    Muslim outrage over 'corporate war game' where office workers shoot enemies dressed as ArabsLast updated at 15:06pm on 7th April 2008  Muslim leaders condemned a new war game where teams of soldiers shoot at enemies - dressed as Arabs.   Men in camouflaged military gear battle opponents wearing shemaghs - the traditional headdress of Arab men - at Zulu 1 Tactical Airsoft Simulations. Participants use replica machine guns, pistols and sniper rifles which fire 6mm BB rounds at a 20-acre former RAF hospital in Nocton, Lincs.

    But the point is that the right not to be offended is now the most sacred right in the world. The right to freedom of speech, freedom of association, freedom of movement, all are as nothing compared with the universal right to freedom from offense. It's surely only a matter of time before "sensitivity training" is matched by equally rigorous "inoffensiveness training" courses. East is east, and west is west, and in both we take offense at anything: Santas saying "Ho ho ho," teddy bears called Mohammed. And yet the difference is very telling: The now-annual Santa lawsuits in the...

    LONDON (Reuters) - British actress Keira Knightley was voted the world's sexiest woman in a magazine poll on Thursday, beating model Keeley Hazel and Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson into second and third place respectively. The poll, which British magazine FHM said was based on two million votes, saw homegrown model and TV presenter Kelly Brook slip to 5th from first last year, while Angelina Jolie, expecting a baby in mid-May, came fourth. Beyonce Knowles was the sexiest pop star at number seven and Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova the top sportswoman at number 56. FHM said the poll was the...
  • Sacred Host Sold as Snacks in Quebec

    MONTREAL -- Is nothing sacred in Quebec any more? The answer may lie on the grocery-store shelves of the province, next to the chips, corn puffs, and salty party pretzels. That's where shoppers can pick up an increasingly popular snack: communion wafers and sheets of communion bread. These paper-thin morsels made from flour and water hark back to Quebec's churchgoing days and the sacred rite of receiving holy communion. But in today's secular Quebec, the wafers and bread are packaged like peanuts and popcorn - and sold as a distinctly profane snack. "They melt in your mouth, and they're not...
