VIENNA, Austria Ukrainian billionaire oligarch Dmytro Firtash received a double shock on Feb. 21. First, an Austrian judge at the Vienna Court of Appeal ruled to allow his extradition to the United States to face bribery charges in Chicago. Then the oligarch was arrested by plain-clothed Austrian police officers outside an elevator in the court hallway, seconds after leaving the courtroom. The day's events came as a surprise to his supporters and critics alike, who had expected the judge to let him go. Austria's Ministry of Justice must make the final decision regarding his extradition to the US. But the determination will be suspended until a decision is made regarding the Spanish request. Firtash has been living in effective exile in the Austrian capital since he was arrested in March 2014 at the request of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation for allegedly trying to offer an $8.

We Are Chicago Culture Shock Games 3/5 stars If you believe what some pundits claim, gun crime is at an all-time high in America. Admittedly, small pockets of the country are facing high levels of violence and Chicagos almost obscene 4,000-plus gun-related incidents last year shouldnt be ignored.

In 2016, there were more than 760 homicides in Chicago, the highest figure the city had seen in 30 years. Chicago has four level one adult trauma centers, but not one of them is within 30 minutes of the city’s south side, where most of the murders occur. In an emergency, that distance could mean the difference between life and death. After a decades-long battle, a trauma center is scheduled to open at the University of Chicago next year. Until then, some south side residents are trying to address the problem themselves.

Today marks the 75th anniversary of one of the most controversial executive orders in American history. Ten weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Roosevelt issued the order, allowing the government to incarcerate people they thought capable of aiding U.S. enemies in World War II. It led to the incarceration of more than 100,000 people of Japanese descent, many of them U.S. citizens. Eddie Arruza, correspondent for WTTW’s “Chicago Tonight,” reports.

Hundreds of protesters have staged a rally in New York on the second consecutive day of demonstrations against US President Donald Trump across the country. The demonstrators chanted slogans against Trump, calling for democracy and constitutional rights. The protesters also held placards condemning Trump’s racism and calling for a new president. There were also protests in Chicago and Los Angeles as part of coordinated rallies called in over 100 cities across the US. Organizers are pushing for mass walkouts from work and schools in a show of dissent. Trump has faced mass protests from the first day he took office almost a month ago. Part of the controversy is over his executive order that bans entry to all refugees and travelers from seven Muslim countries.

Poetess Stella Binion has just entered the throes of adulthood but shes wholly grasped the burdens of being a black woman in America. In her poem Black Girls Be Boxing, the 18-year-old high school senior uses the sport of boxing as a backdrop to discuss the experiences of black women and their relentless fight against oppression. I tried writing a poem where I stood in the middle of a boxing ring ― a metaphor of black womanhood, Binion says in the poem. Binion, who was honored by Michelle Obama as a member of the 2016 class of National Student Poets in September, originally performed the piece at a poetry slam competition in her hometown of Chicago last February and stopped by The Huffington Post to perform her poem (as shown above). In the poem, Binion artfully shares the emotional blows black women constantly face with lines like: Every morning, I look in the mirror and I see black girl hook.
