In March 2012, Joe Balistreri was visiting his parents in Foster City, a suburban community on the San Francisco Bay. Early in the morning, he heard the front doorknob rattle, followed by a commotion around the side of the house. Someone had jumped the gate. Balistreri woke his father and asked for a gun. In the dark, he confronted a tall stranger who had entered the house through an unlocked garage door. Balistreri fired three rounds, one of which hit the intruder, Patrick O’Neil, high in the chest, between the clavicles. But O’Neil didnt die. He survived his injuries and sued Balistreri, who spent thousands defending himself in court. By O’Neil’s account, he wasnt trying to rob anyone—his friends had left him asleep and intoxicated that night in a car they parked nearby. When he woke, he entered the wrong home. Balistreri, meanwhile, has become something of a cautionary tale among gun-rights advocates, after a local CBS affiliate ran a segment about his online campaign to raise $85,000 to cover his legal fees.

IRNACommenting on the US President Donald Trump’s anti-Iran propaganda campaign in the Middle East, Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari said Baghdad will not get involved in the anti-Tehran policies adopted by Washington. In an interview with the Spanish newspaper ABC, al-Jaafari stressed that Iraq will not enter any country’s policies against the other. He made the remarks in response to a question about Trump’s idea to form a new anti-Iran front and whether Iraq will ever participate in it. Al-Jaafari said many commonalities including geography, history, social affairs and common interests have linked Iraq and Iran. Tehran has not attacked any areas in Iraq while the northern neighbor,Turkey, entered 110 km into Iraqi territory, however, Baghdad did continue relations with Ankara. He went on to say that Iraq is a civilized country which does not follow a black and white attitude towards various questions.

The gunmen flew black IS flags during their rampage across the city. President Rodrigo Duterte has imposed martial law across the southern Philippines, warning he might expand it nationwide. Martial law was last declared nationwide in 1972, when then-dictator Ferdinand Marcos used it to preserve his grasp on power for over a decade. Duterte's use of martial law has raised concerns among human rights groups, who have accused him of ordering security forces to kill thousands of people as part of his crackdown on illicit drugs. Hundreds of people marched to the presidential palace in Manila to protest Duterte's declaration. They held banners while chanting, "Never again to martial law." "You can see that IS is already here," Duterte said in a speech Friday at a military camp near Marawi. Philippine troops entered Mindanao on Thursday to begin clearing out the Islamist militants.

( Mondoweiss posted video of rebuilding after the raid here ) The night before last, after an unprecedented seven days of holding ground, the border police and civil administration returned to raid Sarura again. They beat Fadal Amar, were aggressive towards activists, and ripped down all but one shade structure. Having expelled villagers years ago by claiming the location as a military training zone (Firing Zone of 918), the civil administration (COGAT) used the alibi of past state violence to justify present military violence, laughably claiming to have come to remove activists for their own protection. Yet after four hours of nonviolent resistance, a high-level military commander entered the scene and made an agreement with not to confiscate the materials the border police had dismantled and to leave Sarura for the time being. In the words of Tariq, an activist from Umm al-Khair, “For me as a Palestinian living in the South Hebron Hills, this is the first time I see nonviolent people keeping nonviolent resistance, and I saw the tents [returned] back to the people because we are nonviolent…We [have] made a great victory.

An elderly homeowner shot a home invader earlier this month ending a father-son crime spree. The altercation happened on the day that Vladimir Sanchez was released from prison. His 16-year-old son allegedly stole his mother's car and took it to pick up his father from prison. Miami Police later spotted Sanchez driving the stolen car and pulled it over. As they began to arrest Sanchez, his son jumped out of the passenger seat and fled the scene. As police searched the area, the teen allegedly stole some clothes from a home's washing machine in order to change his appearance. At some point, the teen allegedly entered the home of the elderly man. That's when the 82-year-old was startled by a noise in his basement. When he went to investigate, police said, the teen confronted him and shoved him. That's when the 82-year-old shot the teen in the buttocks.

Authorities on the mainland have officially arrested Taiwanese human rights activist Li Ming-che on charges of subversion, in a case observers say will entrench a cross-strait stand-off. Li, who has been held by authorities since he entered the mainland from Macau on March 19, could become the first Taiwanese to be charged with the crime, which comes with a maximum penalty of life imprisonment. With the approval of prosecution authorities, Taiwan resident Li Ming-che was recently...

After about half an hour of stones and tear gas, as Kana’an took refuge behind a garbage bin on the street, he saw that his 19-year-old cousin, Nadim Kana‘an , had been wounded; he had been hit in the back of the neck by a rubber-coated bullet. Bara rushed to Nadim to help him get to the Palestinian ambulance at the scene, as it always is during the Friday demonstrations, for every contingency – which always materializes: People are wounded or suffer from tear gas almost every week. The two cousins got into the ambulance, which set out northward in the direction of the hospital in Salfit, so Nadim could be treated. (Nadim was hospitalized for two days, and released.) But when they reached the intersection beneath the IDF watchtower, a group of soldiers darted out and blocked the road. Bara estimates that there were about 10 of them. Some of them entered the ambulance and photographed the wounded Nadim.

Used buying rules: view in daylight, check MOT history, match your numbers, study the handbook, don't buy a 1991 Cadillac Seville. Ah. You might be surprised I'm able to type this latest used car blog series, what with my straitjacket and everything. But while a 1991 Cadillac Seville isn't the exact itch I wanted to scratch, it is from the same pruritus family - that family being American, V8 and massive. My usual £1500 budget in place, I closed my browser's long-studied Alfa Romeo Spider and Fiat Coupé classifieds, opened a new one and simply entered 'American' and '£10002000.' And what should come up but this 1991 Cadillac Seville, imported to the UK in 1993 and showing 103,000 miles. No MOT, mind - although there were promises of one being added upon sale - but it looked mildly together in the pictures and it was white with gold badging and a red vinyl roof.

We're in the period of the calendar when NFL general managers are filled with anxiety. Or at least more anxiety than, say, your average Tuesday. They entered the offseason with a canvas to paint. And now that free agency and the draft are long in the rearview mirror, their artwork is drying out and ready to be displayed in late July at training camp. Oh sure, there are still critical roster cut-down calls to be made. But the key decisions both in the short and long term are done for one more year. Now it's a matter of sitting, watching and hoping the plan unfolds correctly. Of all the moves made by each team, there's usually one that stands out. It can be the veteran free agent inserted in the right place or the top draft pick who becomes part of a talent foundation for years. Begin Slideshow

epa.gov. This website is historical material reflecting the EPA website as it existed on January 19, 2017. This website is no longer updated and links to external websites and some internal pages may not work. The government has now entered full-scale climate change denial mode. Information of just about any sort on global warming has been or is being memory-holed in a wholesale fashion at other agency websites as well. The Guardian , for instance, reports that, in the part of the Department of Energys site addressed to children, sentences that point out the harmful health consequences of burning coal and other impacts of fossil fuels have gone. At the State Department, references to President Obamas Climate Action Plan and a recent U.N. meeting on climate change have similarly been expunged. However, its not just government pronouncements on issues like climate change that are being sanitized.
