Mother Rachel Fee and her partner Nyomi have been found guilty of murdering Rachel's two-year-old son Liam in Fife.

How on earth can this happen ?

I thought I'd look up what Americans memorialize tomorrow.

Memorial Day "commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service", according to the US Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Public Affairs whatever that may be.

Assuming the commemoration is of men and women who died while in the military service of the US - though I note the US Government website wording quoted above doesn't make that claim - that's an average of 16... [Read More]

"My colleague was scanning eBay and he saw a photograph of what seemed to be the teleprinter," said John Wetter, a volunteer at the museum.

He then went to Southend to investigate further where he found the keyboard being kept, in its original case, on the floor of a shed "with rubbish all over it".

"We said 'Thank you very much, how much was it again?' She said '£9.50', so we said 'Here's a £10 note - keep the change!'"

Symptoms of dementia

May 25, 2016 - 4:50 AM - by dancersletter
I live along with my mom and 2 children. My mom's sister was detected of dementia about 6 months before and now she lives in a nursing home, Prestige care at Alaska. I have been noticing certain changes in my mom's behavior like problem with communication and language. This doesn't happen always. She often forgets where things are kept. I was wondering if these were the initial symptoms of dementia. Is this hereditary?

I am so upset, a couple at my church and in my small group got married and had this wedding and invited everyone from my small group except me.

What on earth have they sent that out of port for. The crew must all have retired by now, surely.

Can't say I ever been a fan of minimum wage laws. It only makes sense that nobody wants to pay for service which is not of value to them. Well throw logic out the window and force the payment for a service of worthless value.

A worker a Mc D's does offer some value to his labor, but only so much.

I had to laugh at this segment...

Despite those great scenes in horror flicks where a sheeted body sits upright on the autopsy table, the answer is no. However, air trapped in the lungs may escape and in the process can vibrate the vocal cords to produce a chilling postmortem sigh. Funeral director Randy L. Goldy, a certified

Surreal debate

The BBC Parliament channel very kindly broadcasts sessions from the European Parliament in Strasbourg, and Thursday's debate on Tax Evasion in the light of the Panama Papers was well worth spending a couple of hours listening to.

The opening address was delivered by Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, Minister of Defence for the Netherlands. In English, at a pace reminiscent of the late John Smith and with the same sense of intelligence. Nobody in British politics comes close. How anyone... [Read More]

A new metro line in Rio de Janeiro promised for the 2016 Olympics will open just days before the event and will not open to the public until after the Games, officials have said. The 16km (10-mile) extension to Line 4 will operate at half its capacity during the the 5-21 August event.

Only Olympic officials, ticket-holders and supporting personnel will be able to use it. The line will be open to the general public after September's Paralympics.
