[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Life is intolerable for a wife stuck in a marriage with a man who refuses to divorce her, despite her several pleads. I think my Mom seen dis soap opera.
In the case of one Emirati lady, It has been extremely hard for her to gain a divorce from her husband according to Dubai-based Al Bayan newspaper, where after three years of a toxic relationship, something had to be done.
The husband in this case was refusing to grant his wife a divorce, Al Bayan reported, not out of love, but because he wants to humiliate her and emotionally her.
Although no official documents are signed, the married couple with children are effectively separated - fiercely quarrelling and sleeping in separate rooms.
The constant hostilities and fights triggered the Emirati wife to eventually kick her husband out of the house, but she wanted him out of her life too.
Under Islamic jurisprudence a man can divorce his wife by publicly uttering the words: "I divorce you" three times. This practice is known as the ’Triple Talaq’ (Triple Divorce).
For a woman, however, the divorce process requires presence in court before a judge and a mandatory reconciliation process that when fails, divorce is granted.
In seeking consultation of an Islamic scholar, the wife was reassured that the Sharia practice of "Triple Talaq" is effective via text message, as long as the husband has the intention to divorce and is sure about his decision.
The scholar’s approval encouraged her to proceed with a midnight plot which would forever rescue her from this toxic marriage.
As her husband was sound asleep, the aggrieved woman used his finger tip to access his mobile phone and send a text message to herself "I divorce you", three times.
The next day she went to the court eager to present her evidence.
Unfortunately, this desperate trick for relief only lead to more complications for want out woman.
What was meant to be a quick solution turned into another nightmare after officials at the Dubai Personal Status Court asked the woman of the source of the message and she admitted her actions.
According to Al Bayan, when the husband was informed he vowed that he will make the divorce process in court as hard and slow as possible.
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] A bride-to-be filmed herself drinking poison and sent the clip to her ex-boyfriend before she died, according to British and Indian media reports. And the wedding was just ruined!
Due to marry 10 days later, the woman ‐ named as Nisha Devidad ‐ sent the video to her former lover after he allegedly blackmailed her, according to her brother Ravi.
"'A youth named Nikhil Borkar is responsible for my sister's death. He lured my sister on the pretext of marriage, then used her and started blackmailing her," Ravi was quoted as saying, adding that she took her life because she was "fed up and defeated."
In the horrifying footage, Devidas is seen drinking a thick black substance in the video at her home in the village of Rohini in the western Indian state of Maharashtra, according to the Daily Mail.
"Devidad was discovered by an unknown person and rushed to the District General Hospital in Bhandara but was declared dead on arrival," the Mail reported.
This Tuesday, President Donald Trump will give his first State Of The Union address to the nation.
Critics of Trump have already begun to express displeasure with his actions in the days leading up to the speech, leading some to wonder whether this opposition is substantive, or rooted in a distaste of Trump as a person.
Wanting to find out, Campus Reform headed to New York University to ask students their opinions of President Trump’s State of the Union. The only problem for them was that the speech would not take place for another seven days...
Would that stop them from giving strong, condemnatory opinions on the speech? It depends on whether or not their brain runs on facts or feelz.
It's good to be the king.
Interns in the Kansas Statehouse are required to sign a sweeping confidentiality agreement that employment law attorneys warn could have a chilling effect on their willingness to report harassment or illegal activity.
Anything that takes place or is said in a lawmaker’s office stays there, the document says, under threat of immediate termination.
My HarborFreight flame thrower seems to go about 6 feet away. Last time I used it was to start a tree trunk on fire - the chain link fence next to trunk, had over the years, been incorporated into the trunk due to natural processes. It was by far the best solution to that problem. I have a pesky wild grape vine along that same fence that I "treat" with the flame thrower every few years, rather than dig the root bundle out. I wear my welding leathers when I use it, it gives off a LOT of radiant energy.
[ABC7] A government teacher and city council member of Pico-Rivera
...located in southeastern Los Angeles County, California...
I can never remember which is larger, Pico Rivera or Nano Rivera.
That hurts so much I cannot read the rest of the article, Mr. Pruitt.

is under fire for a classroom rant in which he criticized the intelligence of those who serve in the military.
In the 5-minute speech recorded by a student, Gregory Salcido is heard using expletives about those who serve in the military and their intelligence.
"Your freakin' stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They're dumb- - -ts. They're not high-level bankers. They're not academic people. They're not intellectual people."
"They're the freaking lowest of our low."
Salcido teaches U.S. government at El Rancho High School and is a current member of the Pico-Rivera City Council as well as a former mayor.
He was elected to the Pico Rivera City Council in 1999 and served terms as mayor in 2002, 2010 and 2015, according to his online biography.
The rant was triggered by a student wearing a Marine Corps shirt.
The student who recorded Salcido's rant a week ago was also wearing Marine clothing. He said he felt terrorized by his teacher's words.
"And I told him it was a family tradition," the student recalled. "My dad's done it, my two uncles have done it. And I just wanted to continue that tradition because it's also something I wanted to do as a kid. And he said so if it was a family tradition to beat women, would you continue it too?"
It appears this isn't the first time Salcido has come under fire. The Whittier Times reports the El Rancho High School teacher was placed on administrative leave in 2010 after a parent complained about inappropriate comments he made in class. At the time, Salcido denied making inappropriate comments and said they were exaggerated.
Salcido did not respond to requests for comment but posted a brief message on Facebook: "The Salcido 3 just got out of an excellent musical, 'The Band's Arrival'. I turned my phone back on to unexpectedly see a storm. I don't think it's wise for me to make any specific comments, but I want my friends, family, and students to know we are fine and we respect the rights of free expression for all individuals."
...especially himself when indulging his feelz at the expense of some poor student.
They're not academic people. They're not intellectual people."

This was the crap from the '60-'70s draft army period. Somewhere in the '70s the military realized to many 'educators' were handing out worthless pieces of paper. The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery was employed to validate those pieces of paper as the military no longer accepted the face value of them.
I've always felt every senior high school student should take the ASVAB, not as a recruiting measure, but as a measure of the education system they've attended for so many years.

...That's one of the reasons they don't. Educators know damned well that the ASVAB is one of the finest true aptitude tests ever designed, and the last thing many of them want is a neutral, unbiased test result in Federal hands that actually shows how badly they're letting down their kids.

My stuff knowledge is so dated, but police departments used to use the ASVAB.
Washington (CNN)A Russian military jet performed an unsafe intercept of a US Navy P-3 Orion surveillance plane while it was flying in international airspace over the Black Sea Monday, three defense officials told CNN.
The American pilots reported that the Russian jet came within five feet of the US plane, according to two of the officials.
The Russian jet's action forced the US Navy aircraft to end its mission prematurely, one of the officials said.
Several unsafe interactions between Russian and US military forces have taken place near the Black Sea.
Russian, US and NATO forces operate in close proximity to one another in the area, particularly since Russia boosted its military presence in the region following its annexation of Crimea in 2014.

[Jpost] In its main annual report on antisemitism, Israel’s government singled out Ukraine as unusual in Eastern Europe for the alleged increase in attacks there, triggering protest by Kiev.
The allegation appeared in the antisemitism report for 2017 that the Ministry for Diaspora Affairs under Education Minister Naftali Bennett published last week, ahead of the January 27 International Day of Holocaust Remembrance.
"A striking exception in the trend of decrease in antisemitic incidents in Eastern Europe was Ukraine, where the number of recorded antisemitic attacks was doubled from last year and surpassed the tally for all the incidents reported throughout the entire region combined," the report said. Not a surprise to anybody who visited some of the Ukrainian "independence fighters" sites.
...or encountered an individual Ukrainian on the internet. Easier to lash out at Jews than at Russians in the midst of their nasty war, I suppose.
It would be better to be quiet about this thing.
YOU are the Aviator and YOU must make the flight ILS ALS or however with maps, Compass, and protractor. We have serious issues with your laziness in navigation.
Among some is the ability to not check heading.
We are saving your face because we have a major defense issue and will be turning off GPS or changing it.
GPS was originally designed with selective availability, i.e. the ability of the US to degrade the accuracy on publicly-usable signal bands vs the dedicated military bands. But that was essentially abandoned by the mid 90s when static "pseudo satellites" became easy to install, allowing the accuracy to be recalculated on the fly.
The signal wavelengths for the military band have been publicly known for a long time. What is new now is not the potential for jamming but rather the likelihood that we have adversaries who can and would do that - plus the massive explosion of GPS-guided armaments, unmanned vehicles etc.
"Among some is the ability to not check heading."
I suspect the taxiway in question paralleled the assigned runway. And CRM can sometimes have a downside, such as when the Pilot Flying the approach turns the controls over to the Pilot Not Flying when the PNF calls the runway in sight (a not uncommon practice.). If the PNF screws the pooch things can get dicey. Contributory factors include the fact that the runway lights (lights distinctly different than those identifying the taxiway) were, apparently, not in service
This kind of thing is not as uncommon as some would believe. I've seen it happen and heard of it more. And the last audio on the CVR, I am sure, was a series of expletives.
Yawn, most likely because the NTSB is doing the actual investigation, not the FAA. By law, anything used by the NTSB cannot be used in a lawsuit. This is to encourage pilots, crew and interested parties to report incidents anonymously without fear of reprisal.
This law has been on the book for decades.
So story should be "FAA cannot conduct accident and mishap investigations. That is NTSB job. FAA can use the information from NTSB to improve regulations, etc. Again, investigation information from NTSB cannot be used in lawsuits.
But, but, they had Hillary, and "Fire and Fury" readings, and "Woke" shit and all!!??11
Golly. I missed readings? Just what I would go to a music award show to hear.
[HollywoodReporter] The CBS telecast is down a steep 21 percent from 2017 in early numbers, potentially spelling an all-time low.
Sunday's Bruno Mars-loving Grammy Awards took a steep ratings spill by the first-available metrics.
The show, which ran a bloated three-and-a-half hours, was off an unfortunate 21 percent from 2017 in early numbers. Overnight returns from Nielsen Media give it a 12.7 rating among households ‐ marking its biggest drop since the 2013, the year after the show swelled following the death of Whitney Houston.
Such a steep drop, however, could very well mean an all-time low for the calendar's biggest music awards show once updated numbers arrive.
[WashingtonTimes] The nation’s highest military court has thrown out the 2012 rape conviction of a Coast Guard enlisted man because admirals and prosecutors packed the seven-member jury with five women, four of whom held jobs as advocates for victims of sexual assault.
In a 5-0 ruling that could change how the military conducts sex abuse trials, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces unleashed caustic criticism of all involved.
From the Coast Guard commandant down to an appellate court to the original trial judge, the high court said all contributed to a "stain on the military justice system." The military has been under intense pressure to wipe out sexual harassment and assault, the five civilian judges noted. What better way to sabotage a military than sabotaging its morale?
PERRIS, Calif. (WPEC) ‐ A woman sued Walmart after the company locked up African-American beauty products.
According to CBS Los Angeles, Essie Grundy told reporters at a news conference in Perris, California that she has filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against the company.
Grundy claims she had to ask for assistance to buy a $0.49 hair comb that was located behind a locked glass case.
"I originally got the product from the Walmart in Riverside...and it was such a good product, I wanted to introduce it to my older children," Grundy said. "They didn’t have any more at the original Walmart that I got it from, so I went to my neighborhood one, and that’s when I noticed all of the African-American products was locked up under lock and key."
CBS LA reports that Grundy said she was "shocked" by the policy, and even asked the store manager to change the policy.
Walmart has received similar complaints by groups such as Making a Change At Walmart, CBS LA reports.
Videos on other retail stores have gone viral on social media. Gotta hit the link to see her mouthpiece. You will not be surprised.
