first_imgYANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her opposition to military rule in Myanmar three decades ago. As the country opened up politically and she became its leader in 2016, Suu Kyi cautioned repeatedly that democratic progress would come only if Myanmar’s powerful army accepted the changes. Her warnings proved prescient. The military detained Suu Kyi and other senior politicians on Monday and said it would rule under a one-year state of emergency. It was a sharp halt in the tentative steps toward democracy by the Southeast Asian nation in the past decade. For Suu Kyi, it was the latest blow in a life spent contending with military might.last_img read more

When it tried to bite her face, Stackhouse moved her left arm up in protection and the dog bit her arm.

Runner Julie Stackhouse was in third place in the Donna Half Marathon, a race east of Jacksonville, Florida, when an 80-pound bull terrier mix attacked her about a mile from the finish line. Although the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality has named the Mountain Valley Pipeline in enforcement actions, and in a lawsuit filed by Attorney General Mark Herring that alleges more than 300 violations of erosion and sediment control measures, this disclosure is the first confirmation of a criminal investigation.
