Priya Jayaraman's parents warned her not to talk politics outside their home. They told her, "Mind your own business, don't look at other people while they are talking."

Jayaraman, a dentist in San Francisco, says that being a woman in India back then, they just wanted to keep her safe.

She moved from India to the US in 2004, but those rules have stuck with her.

It's one reason she won't be participating in the Women's March, a sizable demonstration against President-elect Donald Trump that will follow his inauguration. That doesn't mean she's pro-Trump, though.


In Donald Trump's vision of America, some parts of the country's future look a lot like its past. Exhibit A: his promise to revive the flagging coal industry.

Mexico has extradited drug kingpin Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán to the United States — handing US authorities a massive drug case on the eve of Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Guzmán is the head of the Sinaloa cartel, which is accused of generating much of the deadly violence in Mexico and providing tons of drugs to the United States.

The Mexican government "delivered Mr. Guzmán Loera to the authorities of the United States" after Mexican courts rejected his latest appeal to avoid extradition, the country's foreign ministry said in a statement.

As President Barack Obama leaves the White House, let’s look back on a major policy change he made: the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell."

Introduced in 1993 by President Bill Clinton, the policy banned gay, lesbian and bisexual soldiers from serving openly in the military.

Obama ended "don't ask, don't tell" in 2011.

But for former Army Capt. Easton Branam, who served in Iraq between 2005 and 2007, the Clinton-era policy was all she knew.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Israel’s stunning victory in the Six-Day War. 

The series of battles in the summer of 1967 ended in humiliating defeat for Egyptian, Jordanian and Syrian forces, and with Israel seizing control of the eastern sector of Jerusalem, including the Old City and its holy sites, along with the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
