The online editor-in-chief of the mass-circulation Bild published Sunday a column filled with blistering criticism over the anti-Israel media in Germany during the Temple Mount clashes. “No other country, which suffers under permanent terror, is reported on in Germany in the cynical, ice-cold and heartless manner like Israel is,” wrote Julian Reichelt. His commentary was at one point the second most read article on the popular website. The title of his column reads: “Middle East coverage in the German media: Perpetrators turned into victims.”

ISLAMABAD - Pakistani police have arrested 25 members of an informal village council accused of ordering the rape of a 16-year-old girl as revenge for her brother's alleged sexual assault of another girl.
The Supreme Court also requested a report on the case, which echoed a notorious case from 2002 in which another teenager was gang-raped on a local council's order.
"A total of 29 people were involved in this ghastly crime, and we have 25 of them in our custody," Multan City Police Officer Ahsan Younus told Reuters by telephone on Thursday.

Research on 202 former football players found evidence of brain disease in nearly all of them, from athletes in the NFL, college and even high school.
It's the largest update on chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, a brain disease linked with repeated head blows.
But the report doesn't confirm that the condition is common in all football players; it reflects high occurrence in samples at a Boston brain bank that studies CTE. Many donors or their families contributed because of the players' repeated concussions and troubling symptoms before death.
An advocacy group is threatening to sue the Trump administration if it goes ahead with a ban on transgender people in the military, the Washington Examiner reports.
The group, OutServe-SLDN, is prepared to go to court following Trump's tweet announcing a ban on transgenders serving in the military.
"If the president pushes this, we will take him to court," said Matt Thorn, executive director of the OutServe-SLDN. The group provides legal services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender members of the military, according to the Examiner.
In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump announced a ban on transgender people serving in the U.S. military “in any capacity”:
After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you

The way that a food will affect your blood sugar depends on a wide range of factors.
We all know something is not quite right with our food system when organizations can sell burgers for under 2 bucks. Whether it is euros, dollars or pounds the idea that the cows grow to produce these beef burgers is reduced to a value only, means nutrition, sustainability and systemic wellness have all gone out the window.
