The Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday cleared the way for the launch of a lawsuit accusing President Barack Obama of overstepping his authority in carrying out his signature healthcare law. The 225-201 vote, along party lines, to authorize the suit will allow House lawyers to draft legal documents over a five-week summer recess starting on Friday.
An astonishingly tragic year for air travel in Southeast Asia turned worse Sunday when an AirAsia plane carrying 162 people disappeared over stormy Indonesian waters, with no word on its fate despite several hours of searching by air and sea. AirAsia Flight 8501 vanished in airspace possibly thick with dense storm clouds, strong winds and lightning on its way from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Searchers had to fight against heavy rain. The Malaysia-based carrier's loss comes on top of the still-unexplained disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in March and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July over Ukraine. At the Surabaya airport, shocked family members pored over the plane's manifest, crying and embracing when they learned the news. Nearly all the passengers and crew are Indonesians, who are frequent visitors to Singapore, particularly on holidays.
A corpse on a bloodstained bridge, with the Kremlin's red stars glowing behind: the perfect symbolic backdrop, Russian media say, for the West to step up a campaign to vilify President Vladimir Putin. Faced with a wave of revulsion around the world at the assassination of leading opposition figure Boris Nemtsov, the loyal media establishment is on the counter-attack, preparing Russians for a malicious propaganda campaign by a hostile West. Dmitry Kiselyov, a TV anchor reputed to be one of Putin favorite journalists, told his prime-time audience on Sunday evening, "And they say that's how the 'bloody regime' kills its competitors. The world is outraged and indignant. And then - sanctions, credit downgrades and the further demonization of Russia and its leader."
The Cast of "Hook": Then and Now Dustin Hoffman Dustin Hoffman stole the show as the legendary Captain Hook, a pirate with a lifetime rivalry with Peter Pan. Hoffman's career is legendary. Since "Hook," he has starred in "Outbreak", "Wag the Dog", "I Heart Huckabees", "Last Chance Harvey", . Robin Williams Robin Williams starred in "Hook" as an adult Peter Pan, now named Peter Banning. Banning returns to Neverland when Hook abducts his children. Williams has just as legendary a career as Hoffman does. He starred in "Mrs. Doubtfire," "Good Will Hunting," "Night at the Museum", and many other films. In 2013 he began playing Simon Roberts on the television series "The Crazy Ones". Unfortunately, Robin Williams tragically passed away in August 2014. He will be forever missed and his legacy will live on for generations. Julia Roberts Tinkerbell, played by Julia Roberts, is instrumental in helping adult Peter regain the memory of his childhood. . After "Hook," she appeared in "My Best Friend's Wedding," "Erin Brockovich," "Eat Pray Love," and "August: Osage County." Bob Hoskins Bob Hoskins portrayed Smee in "Hook." Smee is the mind behind the children's abduction. He retired in 2012 after a lengthy career on the stage and silver screen. Hoskins' Parkinson's diagnosis prompted his retirement. He died in April 2014 of pneumonia at the age of 71. Maggie Smith Maggie Smith played Wendy Darling, the grandmother of Peter's wife and the original Wendy. In the flashbacks, Gwyneth Paltrow portrays her. Smith is yet another legendary actor among the "Hook" cast. Caroline Goodall In the film "Hook," Caroline Goodall played Moira Banning. Moira is Peter's wife and Wendy's granddaughter. The film was her first major role but she has worked steadily since then. She has starred in "Schindler's List," "White Squall," "The Princess Diaries," and "Nymphomaniac" among others. Charlie Korsmo Charlie Korsmo played Jack Banning, Peter Pan's son. Korsmo has since found enormous success as a lawyer and earned a nomination from President Obama for prestigious position on the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation. Amber Scott Peter Pan's daughter, played by Amber Scott, remains faithful to "Hook" and loves the Pan stories. Scott graduated from Trinity College in 2006. Dante Basco Dante Basco landed the role of Rufio, the leader of the Lost Boys, when he was 15. Basco continued to act after the success of "Hook." He can be seen in "Moesha," "CSI Miami," and "Prime Suspect."
The U.S. ambassador to Yemen visited President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi in Aden on Sunday, their first public meeting since Washington closed its embassy in Sanaa last month after Houthis took full control there. Hadi has resumed official duties from southern Yemen's main city, where he fled last month after Houthi fighters put him under house arrest in Sanaa when they stormed his private residence and the presidency compound in January.
LONDON (AP) — As "Jihadi John," he was a terrifying figure, his identity concealed by a black mask, his threatening tone backed up by his oversize, serrated knife and his willingness to use it in the name of Islamic State and its self-declared caliphate. His professional-looking videos began with a political rant and ended with his victims lying dead at his feet, severed heads cupped in the sands of Syria. He seemed both judge and executioner, savoring each fresh kill. After the 9/11 attacks on the U.S., many believed that terrorists would turn to crude weapons of mass destructions to attack cities. Few predicted that a man with a knife and a video production team could have such an impact using a medieval technique. Now that he has been exposed as Mohammed Emwazi, the tall man with the British accent and mocking tone is no longer a mystery. He is revealed as one more furious young Londoner, in this case a well-educated, middle-class jihadi in his mid-20s who turned against his adopted country after he moved to Britain from Kuwait as a boy. His unmasking may well have reduced his usefulness to the cause. For one thing, with his identity known, and the global distribution of pictures of him looking slightly goofy in an ill-fitting Pittsburgh Pirates baseball cap, Emwazi may become less sinister to viewers, less able to send chills up the spines of people who abhor Islamic State's claim to be killing civilians in the name of Islam. If he kills again on camera, the element of surprise will be gone and the reaction may well be, "Oh, him again." Also, now that authorities know who he is, there is little doubt he will become the target of a drone attack if the U.S. or Britain can learn his precise whereabouts. The pressure on him could make him less valuable to Islamic State militants — perhaps even a liability.
