Weiner insists he will survive sexting scandal

The London Fire Brigade blames a 10 percent increase of handcuff-related calls on Fifty Shades of Grey. Speaking of London: In one corner sit the tut-tutting serious readers. In the other, flirtatious undergraduates with their iPhones and social lives. At the heart is the battle for the soul and controlof the British Library. Libraries team up with airports in a campaign called, appropriately enough, Books on the Fly . Heres how it works: Scanning a QR code, available on cards throughout the airport, sends users to a site where they can access the Kansas State Librarys eLending service. Visitors without a library card are directed to Project Gutenbergs mobile-optimized site, where they can download titles in the public domain.

And I think I can win. Asked directly if there was anyone you are sexting now, Weiner offered a less than definitive answer. You can quibble about beginnings, middles and ends, but what we're talking about is over a year ago, Weiner replied. Former U.S. congressman from New York and current Democratic candidate for New York City Mayor Antho The former congressman again refused to quit the race and said he wasnt listening to chatter from his rivals and pundits who have encouraged him to drop out. Asked about stories suggesting Bill and Hillary Clinton, who are close to his wife, Huma Abedin, are anxious for him to leave the race, Weiner insisted he didnt care. I don't pay much attention to outsiders who want to say what this campaign should be about, Weiner replied. There are going to be maelstroms, controversies and crises when I'm mayor.

Sisi has called for mass rallies on Friday to give him a mandate to tackle surging violence, fanning fears within Mursi's Muslim brotherhood of a military crackdown. The Muslim Brotherhood has warned of possible civil war. Sporadic street clashes in recent days have killed more than 100. An overnight bomb attack on a police station north of Cairo killed one person and wounded two dozen. BRIGHT STAR TO GO AHEAD Obama's decision came two weeks after Reuters reported U.S.
