In a federal investigation that spanned four states including South Carolina, 12 people were indicted on charges of trafficking of women and girls for prostitution from countries including Mexico and Nicaragua.
According to an indictment announced Thursday, 11 women were forced into prostitution as part of the ring that was run in Savannah, other parts of Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who skipped an overseas trip this past week because of a stomach virus, sustained a concussion after fainting, the State Department said Saturday.
The 65-year-old Clinton, who’s expected to leave her job soon after serving as America’s top diplomat during President Barack Obama’s first term, is recovering at home after the incident last week and is being monitored by doctors, according to a statement by aide Philippe Reines. No further details were immediately available.
The statement said Clinton was dehydrated because of the virus and that she fainted and sustained a concussion. She will continue to work from home in the week ahead and looks forward to being back in the office “soon,” the statement said.
Clinton backed out of a trip to North Africa and the Persian Gulf on Monday because she was sick. She caught the virus during a recent visit to Europe.
She’s known for her grueling travel schedule and is the most traveled secretary of state, having visited 112 countries while in the job.
You know this dunk from Harrison barnes on Nikola Pekovic is insane for a couple of reasons, Barnes cutting full speed to the basket, and David Lee hitting him in stride perfectly with the no-look pass before Barnes elevates and detonates on Pekovic is just flat-out fantastic. Two, just look at the Warriors bench, barely able to contain themselves with excitement after Barnes does the deed, and stares down Pekovic afterward for good measure.
Clemson’s Dabo Swinney says if he were a casual college football fan, he would pick No. 4 Florida State to beat the 10th-ranked Tigers.
Swinney said Tuesday there are few teams in the nation, other than maybe No. 1 Alabama or No. 2 LSU, who’d be favored to beat the Seminoles on their home turf this season.
The Tigers enter their first Atlantic Coast Conference game as a two-touchdown underdog to Florida State (3-0, 1-0 ACC). That makes sense to Swinney, who says the defending ACC champions aren’t that great a team yet despite their second straight 3-0 start.
Swinney said Florida State has shown explosiveness on offense and power on defense that make them among the country’s best. It’s the ACC’s first matchup of top 10 opponents since 2007.

In a game that was every bit as ugly as anticipated, Oklahoma State rolled to an easy 84-0 win over Savannah State. The Cowboys nearly emptied their bench, using almost 100 players in the game. It set a modern-day school records for points scored in a game and largest margin of victory. That’s not Mighty Damn Fresh, this is To Damn Fresh.
The Buckeyes’ first touchdown of the 2012 season was a high-flying, one-handed grab in the right end of the end zone by Smith. Mad hops, concentration and a sick catch. This is not a bad way to start a new era at Ohio State even if there is no postseason at the end of it.
And the touchdown snapped the Buckeyes out of a funk that saw them trail Miami-Ohio 3-0 at the end of the first quarter. Ohio State won 56-10.
Penn State players, for the first time, will have their names on their football jerseys when they open the season against Ohio on Sept. 1. They will also wear a blue ribbon to support all victims of child abuse.
