This year's theme for the ceremony, held at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, was based on a statement the activist once made: "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" State Rep. Ilhan Omar (DFL) and St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter both served as keynote speakers. During the ceremony, Dayton expressed his concerns that indecency was gaining the upper hand. "Here in...

    IT IS common knowledge that oil and territorial issues spark conflict in the Middle East, but there is now growing alarm over the risk that water could be the catalyst for the next war in the region. Middle East nations record some of the highest birth rates in the world but have only 0.4 per cent of the world's recoverable water resources. Some 80 per cent of people in the region rely on water that flows into their country from at least one other. The potential for disputes over this scarce essential resource is obvious, a risk clearly illustrated by...

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, arrived in South Sudan this week amidst a political, security, and humanitarian catastrophe of epic proportions: A country engulfed in civil war that is hemorrhaging more refugees than any African state since the Rwandan genocide and where two-thirds of the population is starving. To her great credit, Haley delivered an unequivocal message to the brutal regime led by President Salva Kiir: The U.S. has lost its trust in South Sudan’s government. The United States must now act to provide the African Union and the United Nations with the necessary leverage to broker...

The Associated Press has not viewed the note, but it was summarized in an investigative report circulating among law...

Samson attended high school in Tennessee. (RELATED: Tennessee Church Shooting Suspect Is A...

    HOW OTHERS SEE IT   When South Sudan declared independence, its tattered infrastructure presented enormous challenges, but also a strange sense of possibility. Now, renewed fighting has stalled attempts at nation-building – in a physical sense as well as a political one. JUBA, SOUTH SUDAN—On its face, the plan was simple. South Sudan’s largest city needed a new bridge, and a Japanese aid agency was going to build one. It was 2012 when the announcement was made, and the capital of the world’s newest country was growing up and out hungrily: a sudden glut of new huts, new houses, and...
