US Navy seizes attackers who held Israel-linked tanker. Missiles from rebel-controlled Yemen follow DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Armed assailants seized and later let go of a tanker linked to Israel off the coast of Yemen on Sunday before being apprehended by the United States Navy, officials said.

College not the only path to successful future

College not the only path to successful future Despite a growing sentiment against college and its high sticker prices, getting a bachelor’s degree is still worth it: In 2021, the median earnings of 25- to 34-year-olds with a bachelor’s degree were 55% higher than those who only completed high school, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.But a traditional college degree isn’t the only ticket to a well-paying career and rewarding life.“The number of alternative pathways that are available is expanding dramatically. It’s no longer, ‘I have to go to a four-year school,’” says Mark Schneider, director of the U.S. Education Department’s Institute of Education Sciences.

Joel Kinnaman is beyond words in ‘Silent Night’ If ever there was a movie with the most appropriate title, it would easily be this week’s “Silent Night.”For this high-octane, extremely violent revenge thriller from the Hong Kong master John Woo (“Hard Target,” “Face/Off”) is exactly that: A “silent” movie with not one word of dialogue.Joel Kinnaman (“The Suicide Squad,” “For All Mankind”) stars as Godluck, a regular guy playing with his son on Christmas Eve when tragedy strikes. The boy is killed, Godluck, seriously wounded, is left unable to speak. The two victims might as well be trash left in the gutter by the speeding car.Like “John Wick,” “Taken” and others, Godluck becomes an avenging angel bent on take-no-prisoners revenge.For Kinnaman, 44, “Just taking away the sound doesn’t really give you a good movie.”Showing up without any lines to learn meant a different kind of preparation. “Actually” Kinnaman said in a Zoom interview, “it made me understand pretty quickly that when you remove one element – that there will be ...
