Couple arrested in Rawalpindi on charges of kidnapping, raping and filming female student
2019-08-17
[DAWN] Rawalpindi police have arrested a married couple on the suspicion of kidnapping, raping and filming a female student of the Allama Iqbal Open University, City Police Officer (CPO) Faisal Rana said on Friday.
Ick.
Rana said that the City cop shoppe had filed a first information report (FIR) against the suspects on August 3 after the student approached the police with her complaint.

According to the victim, she was kidnapped from outside Gordon College ‐ where she had gone to attend a workshop ‐ by a woman who pretended to be a fellow student.

According to the FIR, the woman had said that her 'brother' was coming to pick her up and offered the victim a lift. After a few minutes, a man arrived in a grey car and the woman pushed the victim inside the vehicle and put a knife to her throat to silence her.

The complainant said that her kidnappers took her to a house in Rawalpindi's Gulistan Colony where the man raped her while the woman took pictures and recorded videos. The alleged perpetrators threatened the victim of dire consequences if she decided to approach authorities. According to the FIR, the man dropped her at Tipu Road at night.

The Rawalpindi CPO told DawnNewsTV on Friday that the suspects were later found to be not siblings, but a married couple.

He stated that the two had also admitted to have kidnapped, raped and filmed about 45 other women. They had also admitted to have sold the videos and photos to an international porn website, Rana said. He added that the police had recovered multiple photos and videos of other victims as well.

style='float:right;border:1px solid midnightblue;padding:3px;margin:3px;' />[Aljazeera] Millions of Muslims from around the world gather annually in Mecca in anticipation of Hajj - the Muslim pilgrimage, which follows the actions of the Prophet Muhammad 1,377 years ago.

Taking part in the pilgrimage at least once in one's lifetime is a major obligation for all able-bodied Muslims of financial means, and between two and three million people participate in the six-day ritual every year.

Hajj occurs in the 12th month of the Islamic lunar calendar, called Dhul-Hijjah, between the eighth and 13th days of the month.

While the specific rituals carried out by Muslims today date back to the Prophet Muhammad's "farewell pilgrimage" in 632 AD, travelling to Mecca was a sacred annual rite for Arabian tribes centuries before the advent of Islam.

According to Islamic tradition, the Kaaba - a black silk-clad stone structure at the heart of the Grand Mosque in Mecca - was built by the Prophet Abraham in biblical times.

Hajj is, put simply, complex. There are several different ways of performing it, and numerous schools of Islamic thought, between which lie many scholarly differences. Here is a breakdown of the steps included in performing hajj.

Cullerton is facing one charge of "conspiracy to embezzle from a labor union and employee benefit plans," one count of "making false statements in a health care matter," and 39 counts of "embezzlement from a labor union," according to an NBC Chicago affiliate.

Cullerton, an Army veteran, took office after winning a senate seat in 2012. Prior to his election, he was a member of the local chapter of the Teamsters Union. Once he won, his employment was terminated and he was no longer eligible for the union's pension or benefit funds.

However, in March of 2013, Cullerton was hired by the Teamsters Joint Council to serve as a "union organizer," which entailed receiving a full-time salary along with benefits, according to an ABC Chicago affiliate.

The indictment accuses Cullerton of not performing the duties of the union organizer position while receiving a salary and pension benefits. It also accuses him of conspiring with individuals inside the union to misrepresent himself as an employee to claim medical benefits.

Given broad latitude over policy by Donald Trump, he is widely held to be driving the US confrontation with Iran. And in his passionate bid to tame Tehran, Bolton cares little who gets hurt ‐ even if collateral damage includes a close ally such as Britain.
Al-Grauniad weeps for Iran
So when Bolton heard British Royal Marines had seized an Iranian oil tanker off Gibraltar on America’s Independence Day, his joy was unconfined. "Excellent news: UK has detained the supertanker Grace I laden with Iranian oil bound for Syria in violation of EU sanctions," he exulted on Twitter.

Bolton’s delighted reaction suggested the seizure was a surprise. But accumulating evidence suggests the opposite is true, and that Bolton’s national security team was directly involved in manufacturing the Gibraltar incident. The suspicion is that Conservative politicians, distracted by picking a new prime minister, jockeying for power, and preoccupied with Brexit, stumbled into an American trap.

In short, it seems, Britain was set up.
Perfidious Albion was "set up." Yes, somehow we knew it was a Trump-Bolton conspiracy.
The consequences of the Gibraltar affair are only now becoming clear. The seizure of Grace I led directly to Friday’s capture by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards of a British tanker, the Stena Impero, in the Strait of Hormuz. Although it has not made an explicit link, Iran had previously vowed to retaliate for Britain’s Gibraltar "piracy". Now it has its revenge.

As a result, Britain has been plunged into the middle of an international crisis it is ill-prepared to deal with. The timing could hardly be worse. An untested prime minister, presumably Boris Johnson, will enter Downing Street this week. Britain is on the brink of a disorderly exit from the EU, alienating its closest European partners. And its relationship with Trump’s America is uniquely strained.

Men and women are different? Fake science, genetic quackery, etc. Surely not to be believed.
At the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Los Angeles on Tuesday, scientists offered evidence that the disease may spread differently in the brains of women than in men. Other researchers showed that several newly identified genes seem related to the disease risk by sex.

Two-thirds of Alzheimer’s cases in the U.S. are in women and "it’s not just because we live longer," said Maria Carrillo, the association’s chief science officer. There’s also "a biological underpinning" for sex differences in the disease, she said.

Some previous studies suggest that women at any age are more likely than men to develop Alzheimer’s. Scientists also know that a gene called APOE-4 seems to raise risk more for women than for men in certain age groups.

At the same time, women with the disease in its early stages may go undiagnosed because they tend to do better on verbal tests than men, which masks Alzheimer’s damage.

style='float:right;border:1px solid midnightblue;padding:3px;margin:3px;' />[Babylon Bee] NASHVILLE, TN‐Claiming demand for the product is "through the roof" among Southern Baptists, LifeWay Christian Resources announced Friday its proprietary tactical study Bible attachment designed to carry one study Bible or two compact study resources securely attached to the barrel of most assault rifles is now in stock on its online storefront.

"It works great for those who want to go out and mow down their enemies, all while having the loving words of our Savior safely fastened to any high-powered rifle," a LifeWay rep said while demoing the product at a local gun range. "It's also good for home defense, as larger study Bibles can be used as a heavy-duty melee weapon if things get serious."

"Check this out," he continued, firing off several dozen rounds squarely into a man-shaped target a hundred yards downrange, all while reading the Beatitudes recorded in the Gospel of Matthew.

"Blessed are the sharpshooters," he quipped as he released his magazine and snapped in another one.
*SNORT*
The tactical attachment comes in black and various shades of camouflage and can be customized with a Bible verse or other quote for an additional charge. A tactical melee highlighter is also available.

style='float:right;border:1px solid midnightblue;padding:3px;margin:3px;' />[Mil Times] A Royal Navy pilot became the permanent poster boy for remedial physical training Sunday when a drinking game went terribly wrong, leaving the too-hefty officer physically lodged in a precarious position for nearly six hours.

Lt. Tommy Brownlee, 26, had just enjoyed the festivities of an annual mess night at Royal Navy Air Station Yeovilton near Somerset, England, when he and a few other brass decided the night was yet young, and a drinking game was in order.

The officers chose a contest known as the Chimney Challenge, an inebriation-produced obstacle course that, if completed, awards the champion an ever-coveted prize of more drinks, according to The Sun.

Believing himself to be Chimney Challenge worthy, Brownlee stepped up in "I am Spartacus" level solidarity with his fellow drunks.

To complete his well-oiled itinerary, Brownlee would have to enter one section of the building’s two-chimney system, shimmy his way up a narrow column toward one of the system’s vents, crawl his way across a roof space to the other chimney, then carefully slide down that column head-first.

"Apparently it’s an annual initiation the officers do where they climb up one chimney and down another into the bar," one source confirmed in a message to the popular British military humor Facebook page, Fill Your Boots UK.

The officer accomplished the first sections of the challenge with the grace of an Olympian gymnast.

Entering the home stretch, an upside-down Brownlee could peer down and see remnants of light from the officers’ mess and hear the joyous cheers of the comrades who would soon celebrate his Herculean feat.

Santa Maria residents and police said that a long-standing feud between three men boiled over on Friday at the Casa Grande Mobile Estates golf course, about 140 miles northwest of Los Angeles. After the three men were seen arguing, gunshots were fired. One of the men was shot inside the clubhouse, while another was found dead on the grass nearby.

"These three guys were threatening each other for a long time," Keith Castro said to the Associated Press.
Threat phase now concluded.
Police identified Kurt Backe, 70, and Richard Hansen, 78, as the victims who were fatally shot at the course. The shooter has yet to be identified.

Police believe the suspect returned to his mobile home after the shooting. The gunman’s home then went up in flames after a small explosion, and the fire spread to nearby homes before it could be put out. The situation was made even worse by ammunition exploding from the gunman’s home.

"All throughout the firefighting efforts, ammunition was cooking off," Police Chief Phil Hansen said to the AP.

style='float:right;border:1px solid midnightblue;padding:3px;margin:3px;' />[The Federalist] In a 7-2 ruling on Thursday, the Supreme Court decided that a 40-foot World War I memorial cross that has stood on public land in Maryland for 94 years does not violate the First Amendment. Writing the majority opinion, Justice Samuel Alito said the memorial, also known as the "Peace Cross," has become a prominent community landmark and should be upheld.

"After the First World War, the picture of row after row of plain white crosses marking the overseas graves of soldiers who had lost their lives in that horrible conflict was emblazoned on the minds of Americans at home, and the adoption of the cross as the Bladensburg memorial must be viewed in that historical context," Alito wrote. "Its removal or radical alteration at this date would be seen by many not as a neutral act but as the manifestation of ’a hostility toward religion that has no place in our Establishment Clause traditions.'"

In the concurring opinions, justices agreed that religious expression in the public square has been common throughout U.S. history and doesn’t need to be purged. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor were the two dissenters, arguing that displaying the Peace Cross on a public highway is implying that the government elevates Christianity over other faiths.

"As I see it, when a cross is displayed on public property, the government may be presumed to endorse its religious content. The venue is surely associated with the State; the symbol and its meaning are just as surely associated exclusively with Christianity," Ginsburg wrote.

Kelly Shackelford, the chief counsel to First Liberty, representead the plaintiff The American Legion in the case.
