Police said both showed signs of having been intoxicated when the 13th century wall was spray painted in the early hours of Thursday.
Furlong explained to police that "Scouser" is a person from his home town of Liverpool, according to Thai Visa News.
Meanwhile Schneider allegedly said she spray painted the letter "B" - her first initial - below "Scouser Lee".

Feminists Sneeze, Kleenex Folds. No More 'Mansize' Tissues.

That change comes after 62 years of “Mansize” tissues. In 1956, when they were first introduced, Kleenex said the “mansize” tissues would "stay strong when wet."

Which way to Mecca? Turkish imam finds faithful had been praying in wrong direction for 37 years

Muslims in a village in western Turkey have been forced to ‘realign’ their beliefs after learning that they had been praying in the wrong direction for nearly four decades due to a faulty floor plan at their local mosque.
Imam Isa Kaya decided to investigate rumors that the congregation at his mosque in the village of Sugoren had been praying facing the wrong direction. In the Islamic faith, prayers should be performed in the direction of Mecca.

After appealing to the office of the regional mufti, Kaya was shocked to learn that the gossip was true – the mosque, which had been built in 1981, suffered from an embarrassing design error: the niche in the wall of the mosque indicating the direction of Mecca was around 30 degrees off its mark.

‘They Will Die, Not Even Having Time To Repent’ – Essentials From Putin At The Valdai Forum In Sochi

Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke at the Valdai Forum in Sochi. He was sharp and categorical. He spoke about the enemies of Russia, about the fearlessness of the country and the readiness of its inhabitants to die for the idea. He did not ignore the events in Kerch. Lenta.ru collected the most emotional quotes of the president.

“Crimea is ours. We are not going anywhere. And why ours? It’s not because we came and grabbed.”

“Everybody has democracy here. What is democracy? This is the power of the people. How is it confirmed? With the help of referendums, elections and so on. People came to the referendum in the Crimea and voted: we want to be a) independent, the next step is to be part of the Russian Federation. ”

Evidence suggests crown prince ordered Khashoggi killing, says ex-MI6 chief

A former head of MI6 has said all the evidence suggests Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was behind the death of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and that the theory that rogue elements in the Saudi military were responsible was “blatant fiction”.

Sir John Sawers told the BBC his assessment was based on conversations with senior Whitehall sources and his knowledge of the Turkish intelligence services.

The comments came after Donald Trump said he presumed Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, was dead and that the consequences for Saudi Arabia would be “very severe” if its leaders were found to have ordered the dissident journalist’s killing.

Saudi Royal Family Considering Replacement For Crown Prince bin Salman: Report

The major French daily Le Figaro on Thursday published a bombshell story which reports the Saudi royal family is actively considering a replacement to crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) as next in line to succeed his father King Salman as the kingdom finds itself under the greatest international pressure and scrutiny it's faced in its modern history over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi — widely believed to have been killed on orders of MbS himself.

Texas Democrats Registering Non-Citizens to Vote: Lawsuit

Texas Democrats have been accused of asking non-citizens to register and vote according to complaints filed with state and federal officials, even going so far as to send out applications with the citizenship box pre-marked ‘Yes.’

District attorneys and the Justice Department were notified about the applications by the Public Interest Legal Foundation. The group also forwarded a signed affidavit from one individual who said a number of people, who are non-citizens, received the mailing.

Logan Churchwell, a spokesman for the group dedicated to securing the integrity of elections, told the Washington Times, “This is how the Texas Democratic Party is inviting foreign influence in an election in a federal election cycle.”

Pharmacist Refuses To Fill Prescription For A Woman Having A Miscarriage Because Of His Christian Beliefs

An Ionia woman is demanding that Meijer discipline a Petoskey pharmacist and implement a company-wide policy for how pharmacists should handle religious and moral objections to dispensing medication after she was denied a prescription to help complete a miscarriage.
Rachel Peterson, 35, alleges a pharmacist at the Meijer store on Lears Road in Petoskey refused to fill her prescription for a drug called misoprostol (brand name Cytotec) in July because of his personal religious views. She says he also refused to transfer the prescription to another pharmacy.

US shale’s glory days are numbered

There are some early signs that the US shale industry is starting to show its age, with depletion rates on the rise.

A study from Wood Mackenzie found that some wells in the Permian Wolfcamp were suffering from decline rates at or above 15 percent after five years, much higher than the 5 to 10 percent originally anticipated. “If you were expecting a well to hit the normal 6 or 8 percent after five years, and you start seeing a 12 percent decline, this becomes more of a reserves issue than an economics issue,” said R.T. Dukes, a director at industry consultant Wood Mackenzie Ltd., according to Bloomberg. As a result, “you have to grow activity year over year, or it gets harder and harder to offset declines.”

Vietnam War hero sentenced to 7 years for decades-old rifle purchase

A decorated Vietnam veteran and firearms collector was sentenced to seven years in federal prison Wednesday for a decades-old purchase of a rifle.
Alfred Pick, 70, purchased the M14 -- a fully automatic weapon illegal to own -- at a Ft. Worth gun show in the early 1980s, the Dallas Morning News reported.

The rifle, which had a scratched-off serial number, was similar to the one Pick used as an Army lieutenant in Vietnam, where he earned a Silver Star after participating in more than 100 combat missions and his brief time as a POW.
"The man is a Silver Star winner, he saved lives, he took care of his wife, he’s been in custody for a year, I would think that when a man turned 70 and is an American hero you don't destroy the rest of his life for one mistake," Mark Shackelford, a friend, told KDFW-TV.
Shackelford called the weapon the "piece de resistance" of Pick’s collection, adding that "He had shown it to me. I've never seen it taken out of the case.

Jamal Khashoggi's murder: The West's selective outrage

The outrage by western governments is in stark contrast to their silence and, in the case of the US and UK, their active support of Saudi Arabia's bloody war in Yemen
***
If indeed Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October, either deliberately or as the result of interrogation by "rogue" elements from the Saudi authorities, then it is a legitimate source of outrage. This would be murder, by a state - or the organs of a state - of an unarmed journalist, without judicial process, on diplomatic ground outside the territory of the perpetrators' country.

It is this dreadful cocktail of circumstances that explains the general outrage that it has sparked.

***
Khashoggi, who was last seen entering the consulate of Saudi Arabia in the Turkish city of Istanbul on October 2, wrote in the article that "Arab governments have been given free rein to continue silencing the media at an increasing rate".

"There was a time when journalists believed the Internet would liberate information from the censorship and control associated with print media. But these governments, whose very existence relies on the control of information, have aggressively blocked the Internet," he wrote in the article published on Wednesday.

"As a result, Arabs living in these countries are either uninformed or misinformed. They are unable to adequately address, much less publicly discuss, matters that affect the region and their day-to-day lives.

Flashback: Washington is Complicit in Israel’s Crimes

Who is responsible for this tragic treatment of Palestinians? If you ponder that question, bear in mind that Israel could not possibly commit this criminal behavior without automatic, unqualified, U.S. government support year after year. Pro-Israel lobby pressure controls all major news media. Congress behaves like a committee of the Israeli parliament. No president since Dwight Eisenhower has had the courage to stand up to Israeli wrongdoing. Those who know the truth are afraid to speak out for fear of paying a heavy price - maybe loss of employment. All citizens of the United States must face the truth: Our government is complicit in Israeli crimes against humanity.

Pandering to Israel

Politicians and journalists learned long ago that it was better to cultivate Israel's friends than it was to support actual American interests. They also discovered to speak the truth about the Jewish State often would prove to be a death sentence career-wise ... Maintaining "overwhelming support" for Israel requires doing whatever is necessary, be it fair or foul, and many Jews and Jewish organizations worldwide, like Engel, are prepared to place alleged Israeli interests ahead of those of the countries where they actually reside. In America, Jewish groups and individuals have succeeded in buying politicians and using their money and control over much of the media to corrupt the entire political system to benefit Israel ... It is time for government to do what is best for Americans, not for Israelis.

Saudi Arabia’s Consul General Mohammad al-Otaibi’s departure on Oct. 16 is a very intriguing development in the midst of this debate

Whatever happened to Khashoggi in the consulate happened in a place under his authority. Therefore, he has a responsibility. At least his testimony as a witness is of crucial importance for the prosecutors who are leading the investigation to shed light on what exactly happened.

According to the Vienna Convention, there is no obstacle in asking for his testimony or even detaining him.

With his departure from Turkey, Al-Otaibi has left behind an inexplicable contradiction.

US senators demanded the president should impose tough sanctions against Saudi Arabia. “Just because they are an ally in an important mission, which is containing Iranian expansion in the region, cannot allow us to overlook or walk away from that. It undermines our ability to stand for morality and human rights all over the world. How can we criticise Putin for killing journalists if we allow an ally to do the same?” Senator Mark Rubio said.

If the United States puts pressure on Saudi Arabia in connection with the murder of the opposition journalist, the kingdom will respond with cutting oil outputs. Saudi Arabia may also pull out from arms deals with the United States and turn to Russia instead.

Parents Lose One More Right in California as the State Limits Kid’s Menu Drinks to Water or Milk

Yes, the rumors are true. California lawmakers passed a state law that forces restaurants within the state to offer only select beverages on children’s menus. Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 1192 into law in late September and it easily passed in both the State and the Assembly. Support for the nanny state law flew under the guise of what’s healthiest for the children.

The default options for beverages on children’s menus have been forced to change to unflavored milk and water.

In other words, one more option than a dungeon.

62-minute ‘Is Trump for Real?’ documentary: ‘Drain swamp,’ ‘fake news,’ ‘Deep State,’ etc. contrived talking points with fake Truth hints for just another puppet-President VS 10-minute ‘Q - We are The Plan’: White Hat critical mass using Trump

1. Trump as just another chump
