Nadia Murad grew up dreaming of owning a beauty salon. The youngest of 11 children in a Yazidi family in northwest Iraq, she took photographs of all the brides in her tiny village, studying their makeup and hair. Her favorite was of a brunette woman with curls piled high atop her head. But after ISIS overtook her village in August 2014, that dream died. Murad was captured, enslaved, sold, raped and tortured alongside thousands of her people in an effort to decimate their religion. ISIS didn’t entirely succeed, however. Murad, 24, managed a miraculous escape and is now a Nobel Peace Prize nominee fighting for freedom and justice for her people. Her new book, “The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity

As women continue to come forward in a wave of allegations of sexual misconduct against public figures, the lopsided gender demographics in politics has become an even more pressing issue. Allegations against people like Alabama judge Roy Moore and Senator Al Franken have voters wondering if sexual assault would be such an issue with more women in office. As voters begin to look ahead to 2020 presidential campaigns, here are six potential female candidates who have fought to improve policy against sexual assault, and who have themselves never been accused of misconduct.
Absurdly Driven looks at the world of business with a skeptical eye and a firmly rooted tongue in cheek. Status consciousness can affect human consciousness. It's easy for us to decide that we're not who we think we are, but who others think we must be. So we surround ourselves with trappings and sneer at those who might have less. These dark musings come to mind on hearing that an airline has suddenly decided to radically alter the way it boards passengers. Earlier this week, I flew back on British Airways from Europe and must confess that the boarding process was an orderly as a Hieronymus Bosch painting. My heart therefore beat with glee on hearing that, with touching timing, the airline
Over the last 24 hours, Tesla revealed a new prototype Roadster with a ridiculous spec sheet.
My father did me a big favor: He fired me. On Sept. 28, 2008, in a scene that millions of viewers of the “American Chopper” reality TV show watched on Discovery Channel, my father booted me from the Orange County Choppers custom motorcycle-building company, of which I was part-owner. We had plenty of blowups during filming - and, truthfully, for years before Discovery placed our combustible, dysfunctional relationship on television for the world to see. That day might not have even been our biggest argument. But it was the most significant. And that turned out to be one of the best things that could have happened to me at the time. It just took a while to realize that. Not until I got out from
The NBA has its own Fight Club rules. Nobody throws live punches in Fight Club. (C’mon Bobby Portis.) Don’t accidentally club your own teammates (looking at you, Kelly Oubre), don’t leave the bench to get a cheap shot in or break up a fight and nobody walks away from a team scuffle (more on that later). Get mad about Lonzo’s ‘ain’t tryin’ to get no techs’ response to why he didn’t back up KCP(at 1:40 mark), but it’s worked for Mike Conley for over 10 years.https://t.co/HemrjNkg5u

As Orange County officials clear out homeless encampments along the Santa Ana River, they are making some unexpected discoveries, In one area, they found an underground bunker accessible from a wooden hatch camouflaged with dirt. In another, more than 1,000 bicycles tucked in a separate tunnel were found. The county began clearing more than 150 homeless people from the area between Warner and Edinger avenues on Nov. 7 after months of complaints from nearby condominium residents about unsanitary conditions and other nuisances at the encampment. Lt. Jeff Puckett said the Sheriff’s Department has made more than 260 arrests in the past several months in various encampments along the river trail in
As the investigation into Russian collusion builds, President Donald Trump has started paying his own legal bills, rather than using campaign donations or charging the Republican National Committee, and has created a fund to finance the legal bills of his former and current staffers-which could violate ethics laws if there’s a chance it could influence their testimonies. After several months of the Republican Party picking up the tab, the president started paying in order to make things “even,” Trump’s attorney John Dowd confirmed on Friday to Reuters.
Two people were killed on Friday as Kenyan police tried to disperse supporters cheering a convoy carrying opposition leader Raila Odinga from the airport to central Nairobi, a Reuters photographer said. Police fired tear gas at the convoy and used water cannon as they tried to stop it reaching the capital’s main business district, live footage on Kenyan TV showed. Some protesters threw stones at police. TV footage showed two vehicles on fire. The deaths occurred as police and protesters fought on one of the main roads leading to the business district, the photographer said. Police spokesmen did not immediately respond to phone calls. Odinga has called for a “National Resistance Movement” to protest against the outcome of a repeat presidential election last month which saw President Uhuru Kenyatta win a second, five-year term with 98 percent of the vote after Odinga boycotted the contest. Only 39 percent of registered voters took part. The repeat poll was ordered by the Supreme Court after it annulled the results of the August election, won by Kenyatta, over procedural irregularities. In what is seen as the last chance for legal scrutiny of the vote, the court will rule on Monday on cases that seek to nullify the rerun election.
