  • Thousands of California soldiers forced to repay enlistment bonuses a decade after going to war

    Short of troops to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan a decade ago, the California National Guard enticed thousands of soldiers with bonuses of $15,000 or more to reenlist and go to war. Now the Pentagon is demanding the money back. Nearly 10,000 soldiers, many of whom served multiple combat tours, have been ordered to repay large enlistment bonuses — and slapped with interest charges, wage garnishments and tax liens if they refuse — after audits revealed widespread overpayments by the California Guard at the height of the wars last decade. Investigations have determined that lack of oversight allowed for widespread fraud and mismanagement by California Guard officials under pressure to meet enlistment targets.

  • Pictures of two Egyptian children engaged to be married trigger outrage — once again

    CAIRO – While celebrating his eldest son's lavish wedding, at which a number of famous singers and belly dancers performed, Nasser Hassan decided to "double the joy," he later recalled. He announced that his son Omar would marry his cousin Gharam. At the wedding, held in a province about 75 miles north of Cairo, the guests didn’t find it strange. Some would later tell Egypt’s Al Watan newspaper that there was “nothing inappropriate,” adding that it was only “an engagement, not a marriage". Omar is 12 years old. His fiancee, Gharam, is 11. Egyptian laws prohibit official registration for marriages for anyone under the age of 18. But the practice remains prevalent. According to UNICEF, 17 percent

  • Why Russia and China Fear America's Seawolf-Class Submarines

    The Seawolf-class submarines were envisioned as the best submarines ever built. Designed to succeed the Los Angeles–class attack submarines and maintain America’s edge in the underwater domain, the class suffered from cost overruns and the collapse of the Soviet Union. While still some of the best submarines ever built, they were built at reduced numbers. In the late 1980s, the U.S. Navy was faced with a crisis. In 1980, the Soviet Union had received information from the Walker family spy ring that the Navy could track its submarines through excessive propeller noise. As a result, the Soviet Union went looking for advanced Western machinery to make better propellers. In 1981, the Japanese company

    Dear Liz, I’m disgruntled this morning because I thought my job search was over, and now I’m not so sure. I just got a voice mail message from the HR Manager at the company that is interviewing me for a Project Manager job. I made it through three interviews and I am expecting an offer. Keep in mind that I don’t have a job offer yet! The HR Manager called me to say that she needs me to scan and send her a copy of my W-2 from 2015 “to verify the salary information I provided to the company.” Can you believe it? Watch on Forbes: Are they going to provide proof that all of the promises they made me are going to come true? I’m disgusted. Since when is an employer entitled to written proof of my earnings?

  • Al Sharpton Accuses Donald Trump of Plotting ‘Voter Intimidation’ Against Blacks

    Rev. Al Sharpton used a weekly gathering at the Harlem headquarters of his National Action Network to lash out at Donald Trump, and accused the sagging GOP nominee of racism and of conspiracy to suppress African-American turnout. The controversial civil rights leader assembled an array of New York City politicians and activists at his 145th Street base this morning for the ostensible purpose of protesting NYPD Sergeant Hugh Barry’s shooting of Deborah Danner on Tuesday night. But he began his address, broadcast via radio and his website, by attacking Trump’s claims that widespread impropriety at the polls could deliver the presidency to Hillary Clinton next month—and by asserting the Queens-born

  • Ask Amy: Second marriage leads back to first husband

    Dear Amy: I have been married to my second husband for five years. I hold a great deal of animosity toward him, because in the beginning of our relationship, he let his teenage children disrespect me. I became a person I did not recognize nor like. I felt like it was always three against one, and I had to stand up for myself, sometimes being a mean person. He also has medical issues because he doesn’t take care of himself. So now I live with a man who cannot be sexually intimate with me (and is okay with it). He shows me no affection but says that he loves me. I am constantly trying to create intimacy between us, but it is always in vain. I am only 49. A few months ago, my ex-husband started

  • Your Very First Look at the Mercedes-Benz Pickup Truck

    Last year, when Mercedes announced its plans to build a pickup truck, we were as surprised as anyone else. Technically, the G63 AMG 6x6 was a truck, but it was built in tiny numbers. Mercedes has built work vans for a number of years, but a pickup would be quite a departure. But the Mercedes pickup truck is really happening, and the concept reveal is planned for next week. The only thing is, no one actually has any clue what it will look like. We saw a test vehicle in the wild last month, but it didn't exactly give any production details away. Heck, even knowing it's based on the Nissan Navara isn't very helpful. Today, though, Mercedes released a teaser video ahead of the upcoming concept reveal.
