In the U.S., child abuse is a crime. In Russia, it is routine. Up to 60 percent of children in orphanages suffer abuse from their caregivers, and it is a rare occasion when someone serves prison time for crimes against children. __ Moscow Times.

In addition to the off-shore conflict in the South China Sea, Vietnamese citizens now have to face another disaster on the country’s central coast. Unprecedented fish kills have been discovered along the beaches of four central coastal provinces, namely Ha Tinh, Quang Tri, Quang Binh, and Hue. Among the dead fish are not only small, shallow water fish, but also rare species living in deep water and far offshore.

Vnexpress, a Vietnamese news agency, cited the Vietnam Directorate of Fisheries as saying that "The total loss reached 4.7 billion dong (around $200,000) in less than one week, inc

A family was out enjoying the snow in California’s Tahoe National Forest when suddenly, the unthinkable happened.

Ten-year-old Samantha White had plunged into a giant 10-foot snow hole – and when her dad tried to help, she only fell in further.

To make matters worse, they were told help from 911 wouldn’t arrive for at least an hour, said her dad William White.

"Sammy’s screaming, ‘don’t let go of me, Daddy!’ and my wife is screaming at me, ‘don’t let go of Samantha!’" White recounted on Fox and Friends.

Vietnamese women are left overs because of their culture. Their parents FORCE them to marry higher status men, not the ones they like.

The leftover woman is a special case. She is born to rich parents, has had the freedom to pursue whatever she wanted in high-school and has basically been free on the majority of the restraints of Vietnamese and Chinese culture. Likely, she speaks English and has been outside the country or coddled at home with her parents and grandparents.

Many have NON EXISTENT social skills and no ability to speak to strangers. You have both men and women who have no ability to communicate with each other whatsoever. So if you take away that portion, then it really b

Search giant Google started construction this week on its latest Oregon data center in The Dalles.

The new $600 million facility will be the company’s fourth data center in The Dalles. This project brings the company’s total investment in The Dalles to $1.8 billion since 2005.

Even though the occupation of the would-be militiamen who took over a wildlife refuge in Oregon ended a month ago with a whimper instead of a martyr-producing bang, that doesn’t mean that the right-wing fringe isn’t still trying to turn this into the next Waco, to be lovingly obsessed over to stoke their victim complex. Now new video out shows this issue is not going away anytime soon.

Robert "LaVoy" Finicum did get shot after FBI agents ambushed the occupiers flagrantly left the protection of the wildlife refuge to drive over an hour away to a community meeting.

More than one-fourth of Oregon wineries reported poor financial performance in a recent survey, which may actually be related to their success in growing sales and production, experts say.

Oregon wineries expect sales to surge in 2016 but that doesn’t mean all of them anticipate a healthy bottom line.

Despite healthy demand for their wine, more than one-fourth of Oregon wine producers reported being in financial distress in a recent survey.

About 28 percent of Oregon wine producers surveyed by Silicon Valley Bank, a wine industry lender, said they were in poor financial health, compared to 16 percent for the industry overall.

According to that same survey, Oregon wineries predi
