    Two Republican candidates running for office in Minnesota were reportedly assaulted in two incidents on the campaign trail this weekend. Police are currently investigating the assaults on the candidates, who are both running campaigns for the Minnesota State House, after they each said during the weekend that they were attacked. Minnesota State Rep. Sarah Anderson (R-Plymouth) claimed one man who identified himself as an anarchist charged at her Sunday afternoon after she confronted him for kicking one of her campaign signs.

    The ACLU is one of those allies, and on Wednesday it celebrated something we had no idea existed: the first-ever International Pronouns Day. . .Today is International Pronouns Day! International Pronouns Day acknowledges that referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic human dignity. We'd love to hear what you're doing to celebrate!

    George Lopez got into a physical altercation with a man who reportedly was harassing him with pro-Trump rhetoric at a Hooters in New Mexico. The comedian was in Las Cruces Sunday to film the upcoming faith-based movie “Walking with Herb” when TMZ, which obtained video of the incident, reported that the unidentified man started hectoring him with comments about his politics and yelling “MAGA.” In the video, the man appeared to be lying in wait inside the Hooters when Lopez walked up. “Here comes my boy, George,” he said.

    Ancient Origins ^ | July 25, 2017 | Theodoros Karasavvas
    By combining two imaging techniques (visible hyperspectral imaging and x-ray fluorescence), a diverse team of Northwestern University researchers has developed a new technology that gives access to medieval texts hidden in parchment re-used for ancient book-bindings, as Live Science reported. The new technology is seen by researchers as truly innovative, as it can be used to help decipher the text under the surface of other bookbinding materials. "For generations, scholars have thought this information was inaccessible, so they thought, 'Why bother?'" the study's senior researcher, Marc Walton, a senior scientist at the Northwestern University-Art Institute of Chicago Center for Scientific...

    Blasey-Ford, Feinstein, Schumer, Katz and ANYONE involved with that complete circus in the Senate trying to defame Kavanaugh should be arrested, charged with perjury and defamation of character at least, easily convicted and jailed. If possible, charges of sedition should be brought for undermining perfectly legal and proper governmental proceedings. Those people can NOT be allowed to get away with this. It only invites worse episodes later. Also, the women who accused Judge Roy Moore falsely should also face the same punishment. Where have they gone? If he actually did something, they should still be trying to bring a case...

    Sarah Weddington wrote about the people she saw at The March for Women’s Lives, a pro-abortion march in Washington DC: “I remember various images from that day… A man in a big cowboy hat carrying a sign that read: “Cowboys for Choice”; a number of older women identifying themselves as “Menopausal Women Nostalgic for Choice,” and younger ones calling themselves “NY Yankee Fans for Choice.” I was buoyed up by the pageantry of young people holding up placards… “Stand UP for Choice,” and “We Will Not Go Back.” Children wore pins that said “I’m a Choice,” and families carried placards...

    Randy Alcorn, who participated in pro-life rescues, told the following story: “A Minneapolis pastor told me of an incident at a rescue he observed firsthand. While rescuers were blocking access to an abortion clinic, news cameras arrived. A young woman then tried to make her way into the clinic and was peacefully prevented by the locked arms of the rescuers. She sobbed, right in front of the television cameras, “I’m just here for a Pap smear – why won’t you let me in?” obviously, this made ideal footage to discredit rescuing. A little while later, the pastor saw the same...

    Don’t get used to it, but David Fizdale’s youthful Knicks created fireworks and history on opening night. Scoring a franchise-record 49 points in the second quarter and with Tim Hardaway Jr. adjusting superbly to his No. 1 option role, the Knicks captured their season opener with a 126-107 pounding of the even-younger Hawks. The Garden fell a few hundred fans short of a sellout against a Hawks team expected to compete for the NBA’s worst record. “I don’t want to put a cap on it,’’ Fizdale said before tipoff. “This team could catch fire and figure something out or this...

    Hungary has banned gender studies from universities due to low enrollment, which causes waste of tax payer money, and because there are no more than two sexes. From Fox News: Left-wing critics say it’s academically problematic, politically unheard of in a democratic society, and argue gender studies degrees do lead to jobs. Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has been called the Donald Trump of Europe, signed the decree, which went into effect Saturday, removing gender studies from a list of approved master’s programs, though students already enrolled will be grandfathered in. “The Hungarian government is of the clear view that...

As he continues to look around for a few seconds you suddenly see a child emerging out of the X-ray machine. Turns out, the child had managed to sneak into the machine. The video also goes on to show the silhouette of the child inside the machine while he sat next to luggage....
