We enter Rosh Hashanah 5778 with conflicting emotions…writes Isi Leibler.

Israel has never been in a stronger position, globally and domestically, thriving in every respect—economically, politically and militarily.

But we live in a world of chaos. North Korea threatens to unleash a global nuclear Armageddon and Europe, under siege from Islamic terrorists, many fresh from the killing fields of Syria, is now suffering terrorist attacks—the likes of which Israel has endured since its inception.

The Iranians and their surrogate, Hezbollah, have been emboldened and seek to move in on Israel’s northern frontiers, repeatedly proclaiming an imminent war that will destroy Israel. Prospects are nonexistent for achieving a genuine

Cold-case investigation yields arrest in Isle of Wight homicide

Revisiting cold-case homicides led Isle of Wight County investigators to new information and an arrest in the death of a county native, Lt. Tommy Potter said.

This week, detectives arrested Trabion Tynes, 44, of Surry County and charged him with the 2004 slaying of his father, Johnnie Tynes Sr., 56. The victim’s youngest son — Trabion Tynes was 31 at the time — was indicted for murder and is being held without bond at Western Tidewater Regional Jail in Suffolk.

Trabion Tynes was charged in the murder once before, in February 2008. The charges were dropped in May 2008 after some witnesses were reinterviewed and several others could not be found.

The Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office reviewed two cold-case homicides this year — Johnnie Tynes’ death and the slaying of Carrie Singer. Both deaths took place in 2004 and had remained unsolved, Potter said.

Crackdown On MS-13: New Gang Prevention Unit Targets 10 High …

In an effort to amp up efforts to tackle escalating gang violence, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday the deployment of a new gang violence prevention unit, targeting 10 high-risk schools in Suffolk County.

The gang violence prevention unit will consist of 10 New York State troopers, who will be deployed to the “high-risk” schools that serve as “ground zero” for gang recruitment and activity, Cuomo said.

The 10 schools are reportedly in six targeted districts: Brentwood, Central Islip, Huntington, Longwood, South Country Central and Wyandanch.

The goal, the governor said, is to put the brakes on deadly gang activity before young people even get recruited; the troopers will also seek to identify early warning signs of any potential gang activity in schools.

At least one school district wasn’t happy about the plan.

“At no point did any state official or otherwise reach out and ask what we need or don’t need,” Huntington School

Has Gary Oldman Already Won an Oscar? | Vanity Fair

Now that we’ve left behind the mountains and all the woo-woo “it’s about the art, man” of the (truly lovely) Telluride Film Festival, let’s focus on what really matters: the Oscars. Eight of the last nine best-picture winners passed through Telluride on their way to the Dolby, as well as myriad more films that featured performances ultimately bound for Oscars glory. So how did things look this year? Let’s break it down.

Gary Oldman May Finally Get His Due

Want to hear something crazy? Gary Oldman has only been nominated for one Oscar. And that was just five years ago! His nod for 2012’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was the first time the Academy thought the venerable actor fit to be invited to their big party, which is nuts. But fear not: when Oldman’s latest film, Darkest Hour, premiered at Telluride, it became immediately clear that Oldman is, this far

Viva La Vinyl: Essential Albums Every Vinyl Lover Should Own – The Clash’s ‘London Calling’

FeaturesWritten by Riley Fitzgerald on September 5, 2017

Greetings groovers and welcome back to Music Feeds’ bi-monthly record club where we kick back with a glass of vino and go deep with the classic cuts no long-playing lover should be without. And boy-yo do we have a doozy of a record to yarn about today.

the clash 1

Fans are still divided on London Calling. For some, it’s an album which sees The Clash reinventing punk while, for others, it’s where they transcend it. A shot of revolutionary optimism at a dark moment, it catapulted the group to international fame. Documenting chaotic times, not unlike our own, it’s loaded with a rebel spirit and armed with an idealistic message of hope.

Background: Death or Glory?

The Clash’s self-titled debut was a definitive punk record. Yet truth be told, few outside of the UK would have ever heard it
