Our college aged son has a deeply troubled roommate. Not only does this roommate take drugs and consume way too much alcohol, he recently stole the keys to our son's car during the Thanksgiving break and got into an accident.
When my son flew back to college, he also found other big problems. First, the roommate denied everything but eventually admitted it all. We are advising our son to move out but there is a third roommate involved who is our son's best friend at university — our son does not want to get in the middle of this battle. What should we do?

Season 11's "American Idol" finalist Colton Dixon married his longtime girlfriend Annie Coggeshall at the top of the year and is now celebrating God's blessing on their marriage after waiting until their wedding night to be intimate.

The reason why five Romanian Pentecostal children were seized from their parents in November by Norwegian child services is because authorities used the fact that parents disciplined their children with spankings to charge them with child abuse, an activist close to the situation says.
Lawyer Peter Costea, the president of the Alliance for Romania's Families who has been in frequent communication with the family and its lawyers and has access to court records, told The Christian Post on Monday that court documents indicate that the five children of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu were taken from their parents' custody on Nov. 16, 2015, because the children told investigators that their parents spanked them as a disciplinary measure.
Costea explained that on Nov. 16, the Bodnariu's two daughters got into a fight on the bus while on the way to school and the oldest daughter was then questioned by the school's principal how they were being treated by the parents at home. more >>
A top executive at Google has suggested that IS' access to the Internet be blocked to stop the terror group from using the Web as a propaganda platform.
While speaking at the Royal Institute of International Affairs at Chatham House in London Monday, Jared Cohen, Google's head of ideas, suggested that IS has taken advantage of social media platforms as a recruitment tool, especially for young, impressionable westerners.
Cohen said a "short-term win" for this problem would be to force IS to be contained to the "dark web," thus making it more difficult for Internet users to come into contact with the terrorist organization and risk being recruited to join its ranks. more >>
