Why Mosul’s Victory Important For Iraq To Change ISIS Definition

Why Mosul’s Victory Important For Iraq To Change ISIS Definition

General
Could the fall of Mosul be the correct meaning of end of the Islamic State's eastern province in Iraq? If this is so, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria will thereafter be only defined as Islamic State of Syria. However, in Arabic it will continue to be called as Daesh, an acronym version of the original in English - "Dish." The Iraqi forces have lately been pushing into the western half of Mosul, and in fact the northern part of the country in general, which is the most complicated human and physical terrain. It is also to note the western half of Mosul is more of Sunni Arab compared to the eastern part and so the so-called ISIS has good local support due to such diversity. Demographically too the city is diverse. The western part is dense urban terrain that leads to the wes...

Is Melania Trump struggling with the new realities that she is United States First Lady. Probably she had never dreamt about such role, reveals President Donald Trump's family friend and stylist Phillip Bloch, if believed to a report published lately in the US Weekly.

Entertainment, General
The future of one of the most popular reality shows on the cable television schedule hangs in the balance as Flip or Flop stars Christina and Tarek El Moussa face the possible cancellation of their series.

One source insists that the network issued an ultimatum to the couple: patch up your differences or we will cancel the show and sue you for breach of contract. One insider opined that the couple married basically to draw viewers to their show. “They weren’t o
The Rising Number Of Fatal Pedestrian Accidents In Los Angeles

The Rising Number Of Fatal Pedestrian Accidents In Los Angeles

General
Several cities and towns in California, mostly the ones in the notorious Inland Empire, are among the most deadly areas in the country for pedestrians. Urban planning may be partly responsible for the rising number of pedestrian fatalities. Wide-laned streets laid out in a tic-tac-toe pattern are well-suited for moving vehicle traffic across long distances where public transportation is either an afterthought or unavailable, but such a layout is not very safe for pedestrians. The wide lanes are hard to cross, especially for any pedestrians who are even somewhat mobility-impaired. Furthermore, most pedestrian-auto crashes occur in non-crosswalk areas, meaning that vehicles are normally moving at full speed moments before impact. Some advocates say these deficiencies are even worse in...
