Kurt Cobain was born on February 20, 1967, in Washington. At the age of 20 he set up the band Nirvana with Krist Novoselic, and they became central to the grunge movement of the early 90s.

When husband dies what about social security for wife
There were cheers in the courtroom when Sally Challen, who was jailed in 2011 for the murder of her husband Richard, had her conviction quashed just over a week ago. At her original trial, judges heard how Sally had been subjected to decades of controlling behaviour and humiliation at the hands of her husband before she killed him. But on February 28 the Court of Appeal ruled the conviction unsafe in light of new evidence, and ordered a retrial. Zoe Parsons, 44, from London, was also subjected to years of abuse from her controlling husband. Here she explains why she felt she couldn’t tell anyone the truth about her marriage and why the dangers of coercive control need to be better understood... As I listened to the news about Sally Challen’s conviction being quashed, I was relieved. Like Sally, I spent years in a domineering, abusive relationship. Once during my six-year marriage, I was so desperate I remember standing in the kitchen, looking at knives in a drawer and … [Read more...] about I looked at abusive husband and thought ‘If I stab him will I get away with it?’
February 25, 2019 05:26 PM "Do you know what the best thing about my jihad for Allah was?" Bajram G., an Islamist from near Bonn who is classified as a potential threat by the German authorities, asked an acquaintance of his over Facebook. The best thing, he wrote, answering his own question, was shooting three enemies to death, all of whom were "infidels." Then he took one of his victim's phones, he wrote, called a woman in the contact list and told her he was standing with his boot on the victim's head. The woman, he claimed, started screaming. It's not clear whether these atrocities ever really took place, or whether G. was simply trying to sound important. What is clear, though, is that the Islamist has since dramatically changed his tone. In a letter to his family in Germany, he wrote: "I miss you very much. Maybe you've heard I've been captured?" The letter was delivered via the Red Cross from a detention camp near the northern Syrian town of Qamishli. In another letter, … [Read more...] about Germany’s Conundrum: What to Do with Islamic State Returnees?

Defence lawyers for father and daughter Tom (68) and Molly (34) Martens today made detailed oral submissions to a three-judge panel in Raleigh in their bid for new trials. David Freedman, for Mr Martens, and Douglas Kingsbery, for Ms Martens, delivered oral arguments which challenged the fairness of the August 2017 trial in Davidson County as well as some of the prosecution's key forensic evidence. Mr Martens, a retired FBI agent, and his daughter, a former nanny, are serving 20-25 year sentences for the second degree murder of Mr Corbett who was beaten to death with a baseball bat and a brick on August 2, 2015. Their arguments were opposed by Special Deputy Attorney General Jonathan Babb and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Mike Dodd. Both Deputy Attorney Generals argued that the trial magistrate, Judge David Lee, acted both properly and fairly with the five week murder trial. Prosecutors have also challenged defence claims that comments by specific jury members after the second … [Read more...] about ‘All we are asking for is a fair trial’
