Blake Gumprecht Las Cruces Sun-News Published 12:55 PM EDT Mar 16, 2019 CIUDAD JUÁREZ - Ivan Ocon was born in this Mexican border city, but it’s hard to imagine anyone feeling less at home in the place of their birth than he does. He rarely leaves the small, three-bedroom house east of Juárez's city center that he shares with his girlfriend. He doesn’t try to make friends. He won’t go out after dark. He fears Juárez and its well-known dangers. His home is fortified. There are two locked gates before you get to the front door. He must unlock three sets of locks to get inside. “Life is cheap down here,” he says. “It’s better to be home, safe, don’t go out.” Ocon, 41, considers himself an American. He grew up in Las Cruces. He graduated from Oñate High School. His mother still lives in the city. His daughter does, too. He desperately wants to return to the United States, but can’t. He can’t … [Read more...] about Deported Army veteran longs to return to United States

The late Vincent Price perhaps? The American actor was widely known for his famous opening scene in the The Abominable Dr Phibes, in which his hooded form is shown blasting out War March of the Priests' - in the 1971 movie, he played a famous concert organist out to exact deadly revenge for the death of his wife. For any lovers of the cult classic who have always dreamed of recreating the famous Vincent Price scene, there is a house by a lake in Co Kerry that could allow for some fun times as you tackle the keyboard at the enormous instrument, which is the focal point of Lakeside House at Caragh Lake. This was built in the early 1990s for Gunther Kling, a German businessman who had a pharmaceutical factory in Killorglin at the time. Kling, an accomplished organist, asked pipe-maker Kenneth Jones, who is also responsible for the organ in the National Concert Hall, to custom-build an organ for his new home. The beautiful creation now sits in a glass music room that overlooks the living … [Read more...] about Get in tune with the Kingdom in a holiday home with its own custombuilt church organ
The 2010 United Kingdom general election was held on Thursday, 6 May 2010, with 45,597,461 registered voters entitled to vote to elect members to the House of Commons. The election took place in 650 constituencies[note 2] across the United Kingdom under the first-past-the-post system. None of the parties achieved the 326 seats needed for an overall majority. The Conservative Party, led by David Cameron, won the largest number of votes and seats, but still fell 20 seats short. This resulted in a hung parliament where no party was able to command a majority in the House of Commons. This was only the second general election since the Second World War to return a hung parliament, the first being the February 1974 election. Unlike in 1974, the potential for a hung parliament had this time been widely considered and predicted, and both the country and politicians were better prepared for the constitutional process that would follow such a result. The coalition government that was … [Read more...] about 2010 United Kingdom general election
Thessaly La Force meets Oscar-nominated Viggo Mortensen, the accomplished actor who has made his career by defining himself as everything a movie star isn’tIN THE INFORMAL taxonomy of Hollywood’s leading men, there are several obvious types. There is Brad Pitt: too lean and too chiseled to ignore, rangy and funny but emotionally aloof. He doesn’t understand you, but then again, as with all beautiful people, you don’t need him to.There is the spiritual descendant of Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio, that boyish, Peter Pan-type who still happens, however incongruously, to be in possession of an old soul.There’s Matthew McConaughey and Keanu Reeves — dreaming, or maybe just out to lunch. There are the jerks: Ben Affleck, Tobey Maguire. The preppies: Jude Law, Christian Bale. The guys who can make you laugh, even when you’re annoyed at them: Will Smith, George Clooney. There’s the men you’d want to carry you from a burning building, … [Read more...] about The unlikely leading man: Viggo Mortensen earned his Oscar nomination by being everything a movie star isn’t
