More than 200 people became sick, and five were hospitalized in Australia after an outbreak of gastrointestinal illness aboard a cruise ship earlier this month. Symptoms were reported by 209 guests among the 5,796 people aboard Ovation of the Seas ship, according to Royal Caribbean International cruise line spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez. The ship returned to Sydney on Dec. 7 at the end of a 14-night cruise that departed Singapore on Nov. 23. “Those affected by the short-lived illness were treated by our ship’s doctors with over-the-counter medication,” Martinez told TheRead More

Jacquelyn Hart “I’m throwing this straight in the trash.”  (iStock) Most holiday shoppers take pride in finding thoughtful gifts for their loved ones, often spending hours doing research online before heading out to purchase the perfect presents.

The latter approach works out every once in a while, but more often than not, it results in someone getting a lame, less-than-desirable gift — and stories of these thoughless presentsRead More

Pentagon says transgender people can enlist starting in…

The Defense Department plans to allow transgender people to enlist in the military starting Jan. 1, Pentagon officials confirmed to Fox News on Monday, after a federal court ordered the military to do so despite opposition from President Trump. The president over the summer announced, via Twitter, a ban on transgender servicemembers. But the directive has since been challenged in the courts, and a federal judge last month said the U.S. military must accept them starting Jan. 1. The new policy reflects growing legal pressure on the issue and theRead More

LOLITA C. BALDOR WASHINGTON –  Transgender recruits will be allowed to enlist in the military beginning Jan. 1, the Pentagon said Monday, as President Donald Trump’s ordered ban suffered another legal setback. The new policy reflects the difficult hurdles the federal government would have to cross to enforce Trump’s demand earlier this year to bar transgender individuals from the military. Two federal courts already have ruled against the ban and on Monday a federal court judge denied a government request to set aside the January start date for enlistment. InRead More

Wildfires have roared through Southern California for a fourth day running, forcing more than 200,000 people to flee their homes. Canyons, hillsides and residential areas in densely populated areas have been affected, and the fires have destroyed hundreds of homes and forced many schools in Los Angeles to close. Authorities fear that four major fires – ranging from LA up the Pacific coast to Santa Barbara County – may be whipped up by the region’s notorious westward Santa Ana winds, which could reach hurricane strength.
