• Sneaky kids rob tourist in Thailand during this picture

    She never saw it coming. This is the moment a pair of seemingly angelic kid thieves swiped a tourist’s watch right off her wrist while posing for a photo with her in Thailand, according a Reddit post. The unidentified woman’s boyfriend posted the photo Sunday to the popular online bulletin board and captioned the picture, “Girlfriend in progress of having her watch stolen.” The photo shows the smiling blond victim posing with the two young children dressed in traditional Thai garb holding on to each of her arms as one of them appears to unbuckle the woman’s watch on the steps of the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple in the province of Chiang Mai. The couple only noticed that the woman had been

    Back in the ’90s, Allegra Lucier had an exhausting bartending gig at a rock bar in the East Village. Night after night, she got hit on. “So this one gentleman passed me a note one evening, and I was like, ‘I’m not doing this,’ and I passed the note back. He passed it again, I passed it back, he passed it again, and I was like, ‘If you want me to get you a drink, I’ll get you a drink — other than that . . . leave me alone.’ He passed the note again. And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to get this person kicked out.’ I’m so sick of it. So I open the note: Hello. I am deaf.” She was mortified. But it was also a signal flare, a reminder of how jaded you can get in an environment where some of the

  • Investigation of shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott at hands of Charlotte police (12 photos)

    Ray Dotch, brother-in-law of Keith Lamont Scott, who was killed by police in Charlotte last week, today called for the full police video of the incident to be released and said that he hopes Americans will take “an absolute unflinching look” at prejudice and police-involved shootings and that “we as a nation tell the truth about who we are.” Dotch told “GMA” this morning that the partial video of the encounter Tuesday between Scott and Charlotte police which the police department released Saturday “left us with more questions than with answers” about the shooting. “We’re, first, happy they released” the partial video, Dotch told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos . “Our absolute first goal is to get to the absolute truth … We’re still trying to understand how it came to be that this particular moment led to the loss of life.” Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina, released some of the police department’s tapes of the fatal shooting of Scott on Saturday, and Police Chief Kerr Putney said more footage will come later. Dotch said that in the wake of the tragedy, “My family is trying to expand the conversation beyond just us.” (GMA) See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Tumblr .

  • Sad Shelter Pup Got a Day Out and Couldn’t Stop Smiling – Then Something Awesome Happened

    Shelters are incredibly lonely places for dogs. While animals are definitely safer in shelters than they would be chained to a house, wandering the streets, or growing up in feral communities, there’s no doubt that listlessness is all but inevitable for a dog in the shelter. Usually, these dogs have to sleep on cold kennel floors, are overlooked time and time again by prospective adopters, and have limited social interaction. Sadly, this is the reality for millions of homeless animals in the U.S. Thankfully, many of these shelter facilities go above and beyond to make the pups in their possession feel as comfortable and loved as possible. Whether this means giving them a fluffy bed to rest their

    Eternal gratefulness for an abortion shouldn’t be something to brag about, but that’s what Andy Richter just did at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser. The actor, who hosted the “Sexy Beast” fundraiser for the Los Angeles branch of PP, credits his girlfriend’s abortion back in 1992 with allowing them to live the lives they wanted. These lives included eventually marrying each other, children when they decided they wanted to be parents, pets, and careers. What those lives don’t include is the realization that they will forever be missing a child. Richter and his future wife, Sarah Thyre, lacked steady employment and were focused on building careers when they found she was pregnant. Richter explained

  • Why China and Saudi Arabia Are Building Bases in Djibouti

    China and Saudi Arabia are building military bases next door to US AFRICOM in Djibouti--and bringing the consequences of American withdrawal from the region into stark relief. Djibouti, a resource-poor nation of 14,300 square miles and 875,000 people in the Horn of Africa, rarely makes international headlines. Its location also matters greatly to global commerce and energy, due to its vicinity to the Mandeb Strait and the Suez-Aden canal, which sees ten percent of the world's oil exports and 20 percent of its commercial exports annually.[1] Since November 2002, the country has been home to Camp Lemonnier, a U.S. Expeditionary base--the only American base on the African continent--along with other bases belonging to its French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese allies.
