AbbasThe Palestinians have drafted a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for an end to Israeli occupation by November 2016, which they have shared informally with Arab states and some council members, U.N. diplomats said on Wednesday.

Appeals court blocks some North Carolina voting changes

North Carolina voting A federal appeals court has blocked North Carolina from ending same-day voter registration and out-of-precinct voting in connection with this fall's elections.

How Fox News Picks and Chooses Who Gets Labeled a 'Terrorist'

Eric FreinFox News is increasingly fixating on the gruesome  workplace beheading last week in Moore, Oklahoma by a recent Muslim convert, suspect Alton Nolen.

How the U.S. Ended Up With 400,000 Untested Rape Kits

Rape kit backlog Memphis just discovered hundreds of untested rape kits—adding to its backlog of more than 12,000 kits collecting dust on police shelves. And the city is hardly alone.

The history of crime solving can be divided into two periods: Before DNA and After DNA. The introduction of forensic evidence in the mid-1980s completely changed the way we solve crimes. Matching crime scene evidence with potential perpetrators at a 99 percent success rate, DNA testing is regularly used to convict murderers and get the wrongly accused out from behind bars.
