The 21st century is turning out to be different in unanticipated ways. For example, living in one of the new densely populated cities of the planet may not be like waking up in a bigger version of a 20th century metropolis. John Spencer of the Modern War Institute hypothesized that the new megacities would have a quality all their own. With his professional interest in military operations in mind and motivated by recent Amererican battle experience, Spencer conjectured that not only would time-distance relationships be warped by such urban densities but the very concentration of human complexity would generate a kind

NORTH Korean leader Kim Jong-un has made history by crossing the heavily militarised border with South Korea for the first intra-Korea summit in more than a decade with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. The two leaders are meeting at Peace House, south of the demarcation line in the border truce village of Panmunjom. Kim is the first North Korean leader to step foot in South Korea since the 1950-53 Korean War, and the two leaders are expected to discuss issues relating to peace and denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

Cosmopolitan asked Chozick about the revelation in her book that there were “secret hookups where the Secret Service guys just sneak into reporters’ hotel rooms.” She wrote about relationships between Secret Service guards and female journalists. (Snip) In another exchange, Cosmopolitan asked about how Hillary like to be “flirty with men.” Chozick responded, “She’s flirty. I mean, it’s so funny.

Pro-Trump conservative media personalities Diamond and Silk, sisters whose real names are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, testified before the House Judiciary Committee Thursday on the topic of bias against conservatives by companies like Facebook, in a hearing that frequently went off the rails. The sisters defended their claims that they were censored by the tech giant, often in very strong terms. They said that if Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was censoring liberals, “Democrats would be in the streets right now marching and calling him all types of racist.” Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) implied the sisters were making a lot

Former FBI Director James Comey, in a Thursday interview with Fox News, defended sharing his memos about conversations with President Trump, while denying it was a “leak.” “That memo was unclassified then,” Comey told anchor Bret Baier during an appearance on “Special Report.” “It´s still unclassified. It´s in my book. The FBI cleared that book before it could be published.” Comey admitted sharing his memos with his friend, Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman. He said he sent Richman a copy of the two-page unclassified memo and “asked him to get the substance of it out to the media.” “The

The Senate Ethics Committee on Thursday formally admonished Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey over his relationship with fat-cat pal and donor Dr. Salomon Melgen. In a letter, the panel said Menendez “knowingly and repeatedly accepted gifts of significant value from Dr. Melgen without obtaining required Committee approval, and that you failed to publicly disclose certain gifts as required by Senate Rule and federal law,“ Politico reported. Menendez had returned to his position as the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, a seat he surrendered after he was indicted on bribery and corruption charges in 2015.

Employees of the Dallas-based Twin Peaks restaurant chain, which describes itself as “the ultimate sports lodge,” are alleging that they were sexually harassed and subjected to a hostile work environment when they were forced to wear skimpy costumes they had to pay for themselves and were ranked in a weekly report evaluating their bodies. (Snip) “Twin Peaks’ business model baits young women into wearing one uniform, then after they’re hired, orders them to wear crop-tops, bikinis and lingerie,” Holder said in a statement. “Many of the young women are still in high school, others are trying to pay college tuition.”

Donald Trump is expected to meet the Queen when he visits the UK later this year. The US President is scheduled to meet with Theresa May on a working visit on July 13, rather than a state visit, which would have meant that Trump would have been hosted by the Queen. Yet reports suggest that he is expected to meet Her Majesty at either Balmoral or Windsor. Today, protesters vowed to disrupt Trump´s state visit with mass protests. The US President will come to the UK for talks with Theresa May after travelling to Europe for a NATO summit.

JERUSALEM - At least nine teenage seminary students died after they were swept away by a flash flood in the Negev Desert in southern Israel on Thursday, an ambulance service said. Military helicopters and search and rescue units scoured the Zafit river bed that flows into the rift valley at the southern end of the Dead Sea after a flash flood caught a party of 25 trekkers in the usually bone-dry area by surprise. Another student was unaccounted for and the search was suspended as night fell and heavy thunderstorms returned to the region, police said. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

President Donald Trump recently confirmed that Secretary of State-designate Mike Pompeo secretly met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un over Easter weekend, increasing the chances that Trump and Kim may have substantive talks when they meet. If the administration stays on track, it is possible the talks may significantly reduce the threat of war on the Korean peninsula, strengthen America´s overall national security, and achieve a diplomatic feat that none of the previous 12 presidents were able to realize. There is justification for cautious optimism: For the first time ever, the leaders of North and South Korea will meet

Maybe, just maybe, we’re all just sick of his self-righteous victim mentality. A poll released this morning by Morning Consult/Politico showed that two-thirds of voters (64%) did not watch any of the interviews that James Comey gave on ABC, CNN, MSNBC, and NBC. The Washington Examiner noted that 46% of those who did watch favored him more after the interviews. 16% said their views of him went down after they watched. (Snip) They had at least one thing in common: all were bothered by Comey’s claim that he didn’t remember where he was on Election Night. Several said he “lost credibility” with that response

Norristown, Pa. -- Bill Cosby was convicted Thursday of drugging and molesting a woman in the first big celebrity trial of the #MeToo era, completing the spectacular late-life downfall of a comedian who broke racial barriers in Hollywood on his way to TV superstardom as America´s Dad. Cosby, 80, could end up spending his final years in prison after a jury concluded he sexually violated Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He claimed the encounter was consensual. Cosby stared straight ahead as the verdict was read, but moments later lashed out loudly at District Attorney Kevin

(Snip) Big parts of his biography remain unknown, including how he traveled around the state during his alleged reign of terror in the 1970s and ´80s.

A jury has found Bill Cosby guilty in the retrial of a sexual assault case against him. During the trial, Cosby was portrayed as a predator by the prosecution and by the defense as the wealthy victim of a framing by a “pathological liar.” Andrea Constand, a former Temple University women’s basketball administrator, accused Cosby of drugging and molesting her in 2004 at his Philadelphia mansion. During the trial, five other women testified that something similar had happened to them. Cosby’s defense team contended that the encounter between Cosby and Constand was consensual, and they suggested that the incident occurred earlier than Constand

A copy of the little-publicized second dossier in the Trump-Russia affair, acquired by RealClearInvestigations, raises new questions about the origins of the Trump investigation, particularly about the role of Clinton partisans and the extent to which the two dossiers may have been coordinated or complementary operations. The second dossier -- two reports compiled by Cody Shearer, an ex-journalist and longtime Clinton operative -- echoes many of the lurid and still unsubstantiated claims made in the Steele dossier, and is receiving new scrutiny. On Sunday, Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said in a TV interview that his
