Archaeologists have discovered a hidden underground monastery at the historical site of the Nevşehir Castle in the Central Anatolian province of Turkey.
The monastery, which was found alongside a church complete with frescoes and other artifacts, could date as far back as the fifth or sixth century, researchers say.
Hesse Interior Minister Peter Beuth said the masked attacker fired four shots as he entered Kinoplex cinema in the town of Viernheim near Frankfurt at around 3 p.m. The gunman had an ammunition belt slung around his shoulder. After he entered, he barricaded himself inside.
No Fatality Except Gunman
The shooting took place in a cinema of a major shopping center called Rhein Neckar Zentrum Viernheim. The place has 100 businesses and 20,000 visitors daily. An employee of the Coyote Café Viernheim located across the cinema said about 50 to 100 officers responded to the scene immediately. Their cafè personnel had the initiative to bring all their customers to the backdoor to secure their safety. more >>

When asked whether the stroke has caused him to reconsider some of his views on death and life, The God Delusion author said, "Well, nothing lies beyond. I consider mortality from time to time, I suspect we all do, but certainly nothing lies beyond." more >>

Madonna is the anti-Christ. At least that's what British actor Rupert Everett says.
In an interview with the Sunday Times newspaper, the 57-year-old actor who's best known by some for his roles in films like "My Best Friend's Wedding" for which he received a Golden Globe nomination, was sharing his opinions about Caitlyn Jenner, whom he called a "cross dressing man" before ranting about the pop singer.

"Being brought up a Catholic, and in a monastery, I used to have visions of Our Lady as a child. I thought: I'm meant to kill Madonna because she was the anti-Christ." more >>
