Canada Celebrates Hijab-Wearing News Anchor While Christian Crosses Are Banned

The controversial initiative was launched...

UC President Napolitano to campus cops: Don’t enforce federal immigration law

Germany Will No Longer Deport Migrants to Hungary Because It Isn’t Friendly Enough

December 1 - A German court has ruled that Hungary is now “too dangerous” to send deported migrants as the court alleges the Hungarian government treats them inhumanely.

The ruling could have serious implications for migrants who passed through Hungary last...

Discrimination Okay for the Designer, But Not the Baker?

November 23 - One of the fashion designers who helped first lady Michelle Obama with clothes for years is now refusing to do the same for Melania Trump. Sophie Theallet said she's so opposed to Donald Trump that she in good conscience couldn't work with Melania.

The situation has led religious liberties defenders, like Ryan Anderson of the...

November 23 - Buick adds a third SUV this year with the compact Envision, a competent and nicely equipped five-seater that is the first SUV to be built in China and sold in the United States.

The design and engineering was done in America. The Envision earned an overall...

With the imminent departure...

Trump administration won't pursue investigations of Hillary Clinton

November 22 - President-elect Donald Trump's administration won't pursue further investigations of Hillary Clinton's private email server or the Clinton Foundation, an aide said Tuesday. "I think when the president-elect, who's also the head of your party, tells you before he's even inaugurated that he doesn't wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone and content to the members," Trump spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway said in an interview on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

November 22 - Earth is not even close to ready for a close encounter with extraterrestrials. Seth Shostak, who works on detecting radio signals from extraterrestrials at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute in Mountain View, told Live Science that "protocols" were drawn up in the 1990s to deal with possible alien transmissions. "They say, 'If you pick up a signal, check it out . . . tell everybody . . . and don't broadcast any replies without international consultation,' whatever that means," he said...

Tens of Thousands of Green Cards Have Conveniently Vanished

November 22 - Tens of thousands of green cards, used to identify foreign citizens living inside the United States legally, are unaccounted for, Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson reported Tuesday.

The source denied...

Gun control measures pass in California, Nevada, fail in Maine

November 9 - California voters approved a ballot initiative calling for tougher gun control laws, while Nevada approved universal background checks and Maine rejected a similar initiative.

"It was a repudiation of the...

Drought Warning as Jordan River Reaches Record Low

November 9 - Israel is on the cusp of another major drought with authorities reporting that the water flowing from the northern portion of the Jordan River into the Sea of Galilee is at a record low.

Here’s how gun-control advocates are hoping to finally win on Election Day

November 2 - The regulars at Bob & Tom’s Gun Shop spend hours here fiddling with firearms, sipping coffee and making small talk — chatter that now focuses on fighting an initiative that would require universal background checks for all gun purchases in the state. “It’s honest gun country here,” said Bud McLaughlin of Medway, Maine, who brought his 12-gauge shotgun into the shop, which is filled to the brim with rifles, shotguns, handguns, semiautomatic weapons and boxes of ammunition.

British court brings Brexit to a screeching halt

November 3 - Britain's High Court brought government plans for leaving the European Union to a screeching halt Thursday, ruling that the prime minister can't trigger the U.K.'s exit from the 28-nation bloc without a vote in Parliament.

I don’t think that’s good for our country but I’m afraid that’s going to happen."

Paris Is the New Calais, With Scores of Migrants Arriving Daily

November 3 - The migrant crisis in France has shifted from the “Jungle” of Calais to the streets of Paris, with hundreds camped out in tents in the city’s northern neighborhoods and dozens more arriving each day.

The numbers have been far greater in those countries, but migrants...

Agarwal said 900,000 people signed up. In 2014 the city spent $14 million a year on immigrant services, according to a city budget analysis.

[Recovering Economy] The restaurant recession has arrived

November 3 - Restaurant companies should brace for a challenging period as consumers grapple with the rising costs of rent, prescriptions and car loans and take advantage of cheaper groceries to eat at home more.
