Syrian Refugees Rescue Neo-Nazi Politician in Car Accident

Syrian reguees in Germany resuce a neo-Nazi politician.

Last week, Stefan Jagsch, 29, a member of the National Democratic Party (NPD) in Germany, crashed his car into a tree and was badly injured. Lying in his vehicle, the German neo-Nazi politician was rescued by two Syrian asylum seekers who happened to be passing by in a minibus. A spokesman for the local fire brigade reported that the individuals pulled Jagsch from the wrecked car and gave him first aid.

The crash happened near the town of Buedingen, which hosts one of the several shelters for refugees that have been constructed in Germany over the past year.

The NPD, an extreme right political party, espouses nationalist, anti-immigrant beliefs. The influx of refugees to the country (more than a million) has bolstered its platform. And with nearly 12.5 million people living below the poverty line in Germany, there is a groundswell of anger and dissatisfaction for extreme right parties to channel.

Our polarizing culture encourages divisiveness, and the idea that there is a wrong side and a right side. But it’s human moments like this one that present a different reality, one that transcends agenda. We are all human beings and need to help one another.

When the iPhone 11 debuted on September 10, it was met with less enthusiasm than the usual iPhone release. A lot of techies are holding off purchasing the latest gadget until Apple releases a phone with 5G technology.

Major US phone carriers have yet to build out the infrastructure necessary to provide a consistent 5G experience, so Apple didn't feel it necessary to integrate the technology into its latest iPhone.

A dramatic new feature on the iPhone 11 Pro is its three camera lenses. The three lenses give users the the original wide, plus ultrawide and telephoto options.

It's fun to go to a party, talk to strangers, and try to guess where they're from just by their accents and use of language. It's called 'soda' on the East Coast and 'pop' in the Midwest, right? Well, it looks like a new study has been able to determine where a Humpback whale has been and who he's been hanging out with during his awesome travels just from his song.

In 2009, the U.S. government paid $50 billion to bail out Detroit-based automaker General Motors. In the end, the government would end up losing $11.2 billion on the deal.

Government efforts saved 1.5 million jobs in the United States and a sizable portion of an industry that helped define America in the twentieth century.

As part of the auto industry's upheaval in the wake of the Great Recession, the United Automobile Workers (UAW) made sacrifices in contracts to help put the company on a solid footing after the government bailout.

Fake news is rampant on the internet. Unscrupulous websites are encouraged to create misleading stories about political figures because they get clicks.

A study published by Science Advances found that elderly conservatives are, by far, the worst spearders of fake news. Ultra conservatives over the age of 65 shared about seven times more fake information on social media than moderates and super liberals during the 2016 election.

Get ready for things to get worse.
