Iranian Protesters: The Jeannie Is Out Of The Bottle
2018-01-02 07:21:13 UTC
Demonstrations in a number of Iranian cities have taken an unexpected turn. Initially instigated by the clerics, they've been taken over by secular forces predominantly opposed to the mullahs’ regime.</h3>Be careful, Iranian Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri had said. Anyone who stirs up political protest runs the risk of losing control of it. He made clear that this also applied to those who encouraged the demonstrations that began towards the end of last week.
"The people behind events like these will get their fingers burned," he said. "They think they are targeting the government with their actions." But in fact, Jah...
Miranda Lambert, Academy of Country Music Awards
2017-04-03 03:29:50 UTC
Miranda Lambert stunned the 52nd ACM Awards crowd on Sunday night, April 2nd, with a stripped-down performance of her powerful ballad "Tin Man," looking and sounding like the definition of tasteful country simplicity.
Standing alone on the massive ACM stage with only an acoustic guitar for accompaniment, Lambert delivered "Tin Man" with a lived-in touch of romantic torment, warning the famous Wizard of Oz character just how bad a break-up can be.
"Take it from me darling," she sang. "You don't want a heart."
Co-written with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall, the track leads off the second half of Lambert's double-disc sixth album The We...

2012-10-13 04:17:53 UTC
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Broadening his attack on administration foreign policy, Mitt Romney accused Vice President Joe Biden on Friday of "doubling down on denial" in a dispute over security at a diplomatic post in Libya that was overrun by terrorists who killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.
"The vice president directly contradicted the sworn testimony of State Department officials," the Republican presidential candidate said, eager to stoke a controversy that has flared periodically since the attack on Sept. 11 "...

2012-03-13 17:10:08 UTC
Inspectors from the European Commission have been in Spain to evaluate its 2011 budget deficit after the numbers came in much higher than expected, the EU executive said on Friday.
Spain said at the end of February that its budget deficit was 8.5 percent last year, far above the Commission's expectation of 6.0 percent.
Madrid also said it would not meet its target for this year of 4.4 percent, saying the deficit would be 5.8 percent.
Technicians of the European Commission have been in Madrid this week to collect information on the (2011) public accounts, said Amadeu Altafaj, the Commission's spokesman on economic and monetary affairs.

2018-02-04 04:58:15 UTC
BETHESDA, Md. – Smartphones helped terror organizations grow and communicate. Now the devices are contributing to their downfall.
In a nondescript, highly secured building in this Washington suburb, a group of U.S. government technicians and linguists are downloading massive amounts of data from phones, hard drives, CDs and other devices, providing a huge boost to the U.S. intelligence community as it hunts terrorists.
Many of the devices have been captured from battlefields in Iraq and Syria, where the Islamic State has lost virtually all the territory it captured in 2014.
"This is the future," Kolleen Yacoub, director of the Na...
