This is apparently not an Onion article.
The indictment leaves just one councilman not facing federal charges in Crystal City, a town of about 7,100 people about 50 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border.

The North Korean Central Television has a YouTube channel! They sometimes live broadcast their announcements through it too. I bet it's illegal to watch this in South Korea.

Yes, the boy shot her. And convicted of first-degree murder.
WHITE PINE, Tenn. (AP) — An 11-year-old boy in Tennessee has been found guilty of murdering an 8-year-old girl after she and her sister refused to let him see their puppies. WATE-TV (http://bit.ly/1KtuoNA ) reports that…

Kind of sounds like North Korean defectors who say they're disappointed with South Korea. Yes, defecting North Korea is a little different, but wherever you go, things will be difficult. No place in the world will become a comfortable home without effort; you have to make it so.
Many of the Iraqis who joined Syrians, Africans and Afghans in the great migrant wave to Europe last year with expectations of quick success are now turning around.

The University of Minnesota’s Opinion Research Institute, which tracks the American people’s attitudes toward the legislative branch, said that after Shkreli’s appearance Congress’s approval rating surged from eleven per cent to fourteen per cent.

“A three-per-cent gain may not seem like a lot, but I think everyone in Congress is popping champagne corks today,” Davis Logsdon, the pollster who supervised the survey, said. “Martin Shkreli is the best thing to happen to Congress in years.”

Man, congress always comes across as pushy and ignorant in these hearings. Which is a shame, because this is a serious issue that needs to be addressed competently.

Also, TIL they use VLC to playback videos on their displays.

Pyongyang made good on its warning to launch a rocket in the days before it celebrates Kim Jong Il's birthday.

Oh I remember those days. I've reached the age of giving rather than receiving.

One surprisingly crucial errand in the annual scramble to freshen up is a trip to the bank: It’s not a new year’s celebration without crisp clean money in your pockets to give out to your kids, grandkids, or younger siblings and cousins.
For banks in Chinese and Vietnamese diaspora communities, this week is huge.

Work/study hard, party hard is such a popular mantra. That, along with drinking to relieve stress and drinking to forget your problems all seem more or less the same thing to me.

Research Tech, Miniature Painter, Gadget Enthusiast, Anime Watcher, PC Gamer.
Introduction
I'm a research technician in the U.S. preparing to go to medical school. On the web, I often go by the screen name kkendd. Please don't ask what that means; it really is just a random sequence of letters that I came up with many years ago during the dial-up era when I began to form an online presence, and is most definitely NOT related to the classic video game KKND.

I enjoy modelling and painting 28mm-scale miniatures, and lately have been working on Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 series miniatures.

I also am a gadget enthusiast, and am nerdy enough to enjoy customizing them. I try to keep up with the latest tech news. I use a custom built desktop, built by me.

I love traveling, although I have little time to go anywhere these days.

Lastly, I make sure I don't lose my Asian-ness by watching the latest Japanese anime.

I'm fluent in English and Korean, and can manage to communicate in the most basic way in Japanese.

I run a Twitter account in Korean (@kkendd). My Google+, on the other hand, will almost exclusively be in English.
Bragging rights
I was on a local newspaper when I was in highschool; My painted miniature was presented on the BBC; I graduated from the University of Notre Dame; I have a Master's Degree in science.

The race to cultivate an international appetite for the next generation of world-class South Korean writers is under way.

It's the famous Korean pork belly (samgyupsal), but with a secret sweet and spicy seasoning. It's so good I couldn't stop eating. Have the meat with the complimentary salad, and its vinegary taste will blend with the seasoning to form something even better. If you still want something spicy, have a bowl of makguksoo, cold buckwheat noodles, afterwards. It'll wash down the meat nicely. The raw, seasoned meat can also be ordered to go, so you can grill them yourself at home!

Before I start, I must state that I know nothing about cats, but I love them nonetheless. The Cat Cafe is a cafe that has adoptable cats. It's the "adoptable cats" part that I have a problem with. I do believe the intention is good, but for me, I was expecting to enjoy a relaxing time with playful cats. However, I felt that most cats were on edge because the cafe wasn't their home. Many of them didn't want to be bothered, and a few even seemed nervous/hostile. I stress again that I know nothing about cats, but I would think that cats would be a little more friendly if this place was their permanent home. As a customer, I expected the experience to be similar to that of visiting a house with friendly cats, not that of visiting an animal shelter with coffee. Just to avoid any misunderstandings, I do support animal adoption; I just didn't think that's what the Cafe was about.

Went to Puesto for a business lunch and had tacos. Puesto has delicious guacamole and chips for appetizer, and had a variety of fun, tasty tacos. I had the tuna taco, lobster taco, and cactus taco. All three were very good. The atmosphere is also very nice. Puesto fully utilizes the fantastic San Diego weather and provide a semi-indoor environment that is just perfect. I would recommend Puesto.

Don't let the sketchy entrance fool you. I had some of the freshest, tastiest eel here. You can order them marinated or plain (salted). The marinated eel is good too, but the plain is the way to go. Take a bite of the crispy grillled plain eel with some onions; it's delicious.

The signature Apple Pancake is huge! I went alone for a brunch, and the puffy pancake really is for two people. The apple & cinnamon combination is fairly standard, but the pancake is so smooth that it melts in your mouth. The orange juice is fresh squeezed and delicious. I wanted to try their egg dishes too, but it was simply impossible after the giant pancake. The coffee is forgettable, but still goes well with the pancake.

Historically significant, forgettable experience. General admission is $3.50, but despite the relatively low price, I don't think it's worth it. There are a few furnitures inside used by Paul Revere himself, but not a single memorable artifact can be found. The tour is self-guided, and you'll see a few rooms, each with stationed guides.
