    Younger females are storming the North American box office to see The Fault in Our Stars, which took in a whopping $26.1 million on Friday for a projected $52 million-plus debut. That's a major victory for Fox 2000, which made the romantic drama for a mere $12 million. ........................................................ Fault in Our Stars is trouncing Tom Cruise's big-budget Edge of Tomorrow, a sci-fi epic that cost Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow at least $178 million to produce.

    Destroying the sovereignty and freedom of United States citizens is well underway with a new doublespeak plan called Seven50, just another euphemism for Globalism through Regionalism. Flying under the radar, federal bureaucrats and alphabet agencies have joined with local politicians in 7 Florida counties in imposing The Sustainable Communities Initiative (SCI), a United Nations created plan which divests Americans of Constitutionally guaranteed liberty by introducing social collectivism. Vero Beach County Commissioner Bob Solari warns that the Sustainable Communities Initiative (SCI) being pushed by HUD, the EPA, and the USDOT is representative of a culture which believes “government can never be...

    A Swedish expedition team has found an unidentified object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, leaving some to believe it’s the remnants of an extra-terrestrial ship. Scientists went off on a deep-water dive to debunk some theories about the underwater object, but were left with more questions than they had answers. The divers found that the object was raised about 10 to 13 feet above the seabed, and curved in at the sides. “First we thought this was only stone, but this is something else,” Ocean X team diver Peter Lindberg said in a press release. The object had...

    Gov. Palin rocked the place! Tickets were sold out months in advance. The ballroom seated 4,000. I decided to wait in line an hour and a half before the doors opened to get a good seat, and there were already 200 people in line when I got there. I felt I was there with "my peeps". I imagined that this felt what a Freeper convention would feel like! People were really happy, excited, thrilled to be going and I imagine if anyone had wanted to sell their tickets, they could have made a tidy sum. This audience, however, wasn't selling!...

    UCI study is first to show reversal of long-term hind-limb paralysisA UC Irvine study is the first to demonstrate that human neural stem cells can restore mobility in cases of chronic spinal cord injury, suggesting the prospect of treating a much broader population of patients. Previous breakthrough stem cell studies have focused on the acute, or early, phase of spinal cord injury, a period of up to a few weeks after the initial trauma when drug treatments can lead to some functional recovery. The UCI study, led by Aileen Anderson and Brian Cummings of the Sue and Bill Gross Stem...

    Correctional officers at state correctional institutions, including the two located in Luzerne County, have been ordered to remove American flag and yellow ribbon pins from their uniforms. The order from Secretary of Corrections Jeffrey A. Beard on Sept. 2 has upset many correctional officers who wore the stars and stripes and yellow pins to show support for military personnel fighting in Operation Iraqi Freedom. "No one wants to get fired, but it's a matter of principle," said Jim Chernavage, business agent for the Pennsylvania State Corrections Officers Association. Beard said in his order that the responsibility of the department of...
