This image made from amateur video posted on an activist social media account early Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014, which has been verified and is consistent with other AP reporting, shows an explosion in the village of Kfar Derian, Syria. The Syrian foreign ministry said Tuesday that Washington informed Damascus’ envoy to the United Nations before launching airstrikes against the Islamic State group in Syria, attacks that activists said inflicted casualties among jihadi fighters on the ground. Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an activist group,  said missiles also targeted the village of Kfar Derian, which is a base for the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front, which is a rival of the Islamic State group. Abdurrahman said those strikes appear to have been carried by the U.S. (AP Photo/amateur video via AP video)

  • Corbett may now have to face the porn

    A BIG BATCH of porny emails may be the very last thing Gov. Corbett, trailing badly in the polls to Democrat Tom Wolf, needs to hear about right now. Still, a judge yesterday said the state Attorney General's Office may release emails requested in the last two months by four newspapers, including the Daily News , which may have been sent or received by Corbett's top deputies when he was attorney general.

Kane's review of her predecessors' handling of the Jerry Sandusky case included a heroic effort to recover deleted office emails that apparently has produced less than heroic results.

  • College move-in day: What would Henry David Thoreau say?

    Stephanie Seibert, a management major from Pittsburgh, unpacks in her dorm room during freshman move-in day at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014, in Johnstown, Pa. On the fourth-floor landing of the stairwell that led to my daughter Eve's sixth-floor dorm room, I stopped, caught my breath, and thought of Henry David Thoreau's famous pronouncement on the complications of consumerism: "Most of the luxuries, and many of the so-called comforts of life, are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.
