Fifth Harmony star Lauren Jauregui just shared an open letter addressed to anyone who thinks voting for President-elect Donald Trump “does not mean that you are racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic, assholes.” And she used the occasion to publicly come out as bisexual. In the op-ed, published on Billboard.com Friday , the obviously furious singer held back little, calling Trump supporters “hypocrites” who “voted for a person who built an 18-month campaign off the back of your hatred” before become the latest person to compare the president-elect to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler . Jauregui said she’s a “bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it.” She also noted she is proud to be “the granddaughter and daughter of immigrants who were brave enough to leave their homes and come to a whole new world.” She then dedicated several paragraphs to explaining her pride as a woman in light of the misogyny that ran rampant during Trump’s campaign

Luxembourg’s foreign minister said on Monday that the Turkish government’s handling of dismissed civil servants reminded him of methods used by the Nazis, and that, sooner or later, the EU would have to respond with sanctions. More than 110,000 public servants in Turkey – from soldiers and judges to teachers and journalists – have been detained, suspended or sacked since a failed military coup in July, in what President Tayyip Erdogan’s critics say is a crackdown on all forms of dissent. Turkish officials say the measures are justified by the threat posed by the coup attempt, in which more than 240 people were killed as rogue soldiers commandeered fighter jets and tanks, bombing parliament and other buildings.

In mezzo alle continue incursioni aeree e durante il massacro di Siriani innocenti di cui siamo tutti testimoni, la recente distruzione dell’Arco di Trionfo a Palmira in Siria da parte dei militanti dello Stato Islamico non ha semplicemente ridotto in macerie un altro monumento della storia romana.
"Never Surrender," John Kelley’s Chronicle of Winston Churchill, Great Britain, And The Fateful Summer Of 1940, Is A Feast For History Buffs
In the short-form version of Winston Churchill’s life — I’m thinking of Paul Johnson’s excellent 192-page biography — we meet the Churchill who’s become legend, a late-life hero who saved the free world. John Kelly’s “Never Surrender: Winston Churchill and Britain’s Decision to Fight Nazi Germany in the Fateful Summer of 1940” weighs in at 384 pages followed by 20 pages of footnotes, and offers a more nuanced view.
These last few months of media reporting in and on India are sounding ominously like the media climate in America in the period between the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the invasion of Iraq. There is blood and fire in the air and on the ground, and a gloomy atmosphere of even more death and destruction to come.
Often when we are reminded of horrific events, unless personally involved, we pause for a moment and think about the event that has been brought to our attention, again, and move on to what we doing or thinking before such a reminder. So, possibly, this could be the case with the 9/11 terrorists’ attack on the World Trade Center 14 years ago today.
September 3 Canada’s Global News: “Warning: the next image contains content some viewers may find disturbing.

What is remarkable though is the hesitancy of much of the media to publish the picture.
American distance runner Molly Huddle thought she had a bronze medal wrapped up at the World Athletics Championships in Beijing on Monday. Flying down the last straightaway of the 10,000-meter race, a then third-place Huddle watched Kenya’s Vivian Cheruiyot and Ethiopia’s Gelete Burka finish first and second, respectively , before lifting her arms in a classic v-for-victory pose. Except she, like Oregon’s Tanguy Pepiot and American runner Ben Payne before her, celebrated too early, creating just enough of an opening for the runner behind her to vault through. American Molly Huddle celebrates too early & loses bronze medal in world final of 10,000 meters
