He founded a company to look for a cure, and helped develop the drug that saved Megan's life. Today she is 20 years old and a sophomore at Notre Dame. Megan's story is about the unbounded power of a father's love for a daughter. But our slow and burdensome approval process at the Food and Drug Administration keeps too many advances, like the one that saved Megan's life, from reaching those in need. If we slash the restraints, not just at the FDA but across our Government, then we will be blessed with far more miracles like Megan. In fact, our children will grow up in a Nation of miracles. But to achieve this future, we must enrich the mind –- and the souls –- of every American child. Education is the civil rights issue of our time. I am calling upon Members of both parties to pass an education bill that funds school choice for disadvantaged youth, including millions of African-American and Latino children.

In the beginning we heard from a Labour Peer moving the amendment, she speaks for the party on Brexit. She recalled a speech in 1985, famously at a torrid conference when he said you cannot play politics with people's jobs. She said you cannot play politics with people's futures. And we heard a rebel Tory taking his late father is titled, the former Tory cabinet minister, talking about the world high ground he said it is often the best ground to fight a campaign.

He is fantastic in this tale about a band being trapped in a club with a group of skinheads after they witness a horrific murder. It starts off slow but once the events happen, the film ratchets up the tension to almost breaking point. Back before Jennifer Lawrence was a superstar Oscar-winning actress, she made a film that arguably houses her best role. Winter's Bone is bleak. Set around the harsh Ozark Mountain landscape of the US, the film sees Lawrence on the hunt for her meth-making father. On the way, she unravels a conspiracy that involves much of her untrustworthy neighbours. This is Lawrence at her understated best. The Coen Brothers again, this time in a period piece that's set in the Prohibition times and focuses on Tom Regan (Gabriel Byrne), a go-between that tries his hardest to keep the peace between warring mob bosses. Although this movie is never muttered in the same breath as The Godfather or Once Upon A Time In America, it deserves to be up there as one of the best gangster movies of all time.

They dont want nothing but division, bickering. They dont want to solve no problems. They dont want to help kids or husbands or family members thats been murdered by illegals. I mean, just the way they did that was so disrespectful. But its bigger than them, so I just keep on moving. I just ignore them like they do me. Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

FIFA.com The story of Alireza Jahanbakhsh has been shaped by the FIFA World Cup™. In career terms, the 2014 edition – when he played a key role for Iran, aged just 20represents the pinnacle of the winger’s achievements thus far. But the tournament had began influencing the direction of Jahanbakhsh’s life long before he travelled to Brazil. “I have a strong memory of watching the 2006 World Cup at home with my family, he explained to FIFA.com . As we were watching a game, my father turned to me and said, ‘This is my biggest dream – to see you one day playing wearing that shirt at a World Cup’. I was just a kid at the time; neither of us could have imagined I would do just that only eight years later. But his dream definitely became my dream, and I was really determined to do whatever I could to make it happen.” That determination led to some tough and courageous decisions.

A rational and moral person might think of the recent U.S. raid in Yemen this way. Here's one small incident out of a war consisting primarily of a massive bombing campaign that has slaughtered innocents by the thousands and is threatening to lead to the starvation of hundreds of thousands. In this one incident some 30 people were murdered, some 10 of them women and children, one of them the 8-year-old sister of a 16-year-old American boy whom President Obama had earlier murdered just after having murdered his father. There wasn't some Very Important Thing accomplished, such as learning the cell phone number of someone suspiciously Muslim or whatever, that an immoral hack could try to claim justified this incident. This was mass murder. In the course of this mass murder, one American taking part in it was killed. The first paragraph above is of virtually no interest to the U.

The mother of a woman being sentenced to prison for killing a person and severely injuring another in a drunk driving accident was thrown in jail for smiling and laughing in court on Friday. The victim's family was reading statements describing the impact the crash has had on them when Judge Qiana Lillard of the Wayne County Circuit Court in Michigan heard laughing from the family of Amanda Kosal, who admitted to killing a father of five and seriously injuring his fiancee, CBS News reported Tuesday. Kosal, 25, said she killed Jerome Zirker, 31, and severely injured his fiancee, Brittany Johnson, 31, while driving drunk and causing a head on collision this past summer. Lillard paused the victim's family to reprimand those who laughed and throw Kosal's mother in prison. "Whoever can sit here at a tragic moment like this and laugh and smile when somebody has lost a family member," she said.
