She warned the white slave owner that the rapes had to stop. Celia, 19, had endured five years of assaults by Robert Newsom, the widowed Missouri farmer in his 70s who’d purchased her when she was 14. She’d borne two of her predator’s children. Now she was being courted by an enslaved black man named George. When she became pregnant a third time, George told her the farmer’s abuse could not continue. Celia warned Newsom that she would hurt him if he came to her cabin again. She also asked his two adult daughters for help keeping their father away. But on the night of June 23, 1855, Newsom crept into her cabin and tried to force her to have sex with him. Celia took a stick and bashed his head

Erik Wemple | Opinion Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy is doubtless well-studied on the tensions between President Trump and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). In a Monday night speech in Philadelphia, McCain said, “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of Earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”
“Let's talk about how I can do better,” Lisa Bloom said. It was a Friday morning - the first day the attorney was back in her Woodland Hills law firm following her resignation as Harvey Weinstein’s adviser - and she'd called her staff into a meeting. She wanted to apologize. She told her colleagues she'd made a "colossal mistake" in deciding to represent the Hollywood producer against numerous claims of sexual harassment. That she was sorry for associating the firm with a case that ended up being such a nightmare. That she should have known better. Bloom is not often on the defense. Like her mother, famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred, she has become a ubiquitous figure in bringing high-profile
Six-month-old Rugbie was crowned flower girl for her aunt’s wedding, but when it came time for her to make her way down the aisle, sleep prevailed. On Reddit, her father, Joe Morman, posted a photo of his hilarious baby girl making her way down the aisle fast asleep, falling back in the wagon pulled by her mom. “My daughter was supposed to be a flower girl in her aunts wedding but napping is life.
KAYAK ‘s 2017 holiday data was recently unveiled, highlighting the most searched places for holiday travel this year, as selected by Canadians. Findings are taken from flight searches conducted between January 1, 2017 through to September 28, 2017, and the searches coincide with travel planned between December 1, 2017 and January 15, 2018. KAYAK’s research found that Canadians book their holiday flights later than Americans, who start locking down plans in September. Canadians do it a month later in October (so now’s the time to get planning!). This could perhaps have to do with the order of Thanksgiving; Americans may need to plan earlier since their Thanksgiving holiday is in November rather than October, and they don’t want to miss out on deals and be rushing last minute to figure out plans. However, KAYAK notes that flight prices tend to decrease at the beginning of November and remain pretty constant throughout the holidays, so does the extra month really matter? As for when Canadians tend to search for both domestic and international flights, KAYAK reports that the 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST window during weekdays is primetime. After all, who doesn’t like to day dream about vacation while sitting at work? Friday is the cheapest day to fly out of Canada (or across Canada) and Monday is the cheapest day to return. Interesting to note is that Canadians tend to take an average of 13 vacation days (three more than those in the U.S.) during the winter holidays, which is three more days than last year’s findings. Other interesting findings worth mentioning: For the second year in a row, people flying out of Ottawa are opting for places in the U.S. when picking their holiday spots. Hawaii is a go-to spot for those flying out of Edmonton, but for the first time in four years, Hawaii didn’t make the top trending list for Calgarians, according to KAYAK’S results. Note: All flight searches are round-trip economy flights, excluding price outliers based on certain criteria. Prices may vary.
