Hello there When American University of Antigua held its 2010 orientation for new veterinary students, Stephanie had been on the island for a week, and had already bonded with everyone in her dorm building.

Thieves nab royal Swedish artifacts STOCKHOLM, Sweden - A gang of thieves Friday staged a remarkable break-in near the Swedish royal family's residence in Stockholm, smashing display cases at a historic 18th-century Chinese-style landmark and getting away with artifacts that police called potentially priceless. The heist at the ornate Chinese Pavilion, a birthday gift from King Adolf Fredrik to Queen Lovisa Ulrika in 1753, took only six minutes and occurred just after security guards had made their 2 a.m. rounds, police said.

LANCASTER, Pa. - Laura Davies said she gets the same thing all the time and she does not get it. "When are you giving up?" Davies is often asked as she continues to navigate the world's golf courses at the age of 51. No time soon is the answer Davies provided with her actions rather than words Friday morning at the Lancaster Country Club. She completed her rain-delayed first round at even par before shooting 2-over in the second round, putting her in position to make the cut in the 27th U.S. Women's Open of her career.

Actor Ian Charleson, 40, who starred in the film Chariots of Fire as a runner whose religious commitment took precedence over competition, has died of AIDS, his agent said yesterday. The Scottish actor, who had recently played the role of Hamlet at London's National Theater, died at his home in London on Saturday evening "following a courageous struggle" with acquired immune deficiency syndrome, Michael Whitehall said. He said the cause of death was septicemia, a disease caused by microorganisms in the blood.

The crowds showing up to help promote British activist Bob Geldof's efforts to fight poverty in Africa have been small thus far. Geldof was an organizer of Saturday's Live 8 concerts, which were held to pressure Group of Eight leaders meeting in Scotland this week to do more to help Africa, and he had urged people to gather here to continue to press the leaders. "To be honest, there aren't nearly as many people on the street as you'd see on a normal Wednesday," Mairi McCarron of Edinburgh said yesterday.

Scottish crime-fiction master Ian Rankin's Even Dogs in the Wild is his 20th novel to feature John Rebus, his rumpled, ill-mannered, single-malt- and IPA-loving Edinburgh police inspector. Since Rebus' debut with Knots & Crosses in 1987, Rankin has become a runaway best-selling author in the United Kingdom, and he has grown steadily more popular in the United States, a leading exemplar of "Tartan noir," along with fellow Scots such as Denise Mina and Val McDermid. It has been a slow build.

Emily Selke, a 2013 graduate of Drexel University, and her mother, Yvonne Ciarlo Selke, a 1975 graduate of Springfield High School in Delaware County, had a close relationship. "They were very supportive of each other. It was sweet to see. It was like the ideal mother-daughter relationship," said Xela Batchelder, an assistant professor at Drexel. The Selkes were traveling Tuesday on the Germanwings Airbus A320 that crashed in the southern French Alps. There were no survivors among the 150 people aboard Flight 9525 from Barcelona, Spain, to Dusseldorf, Germany.

THANKS TO this past fall's widely debated independence vote, as well as poppy entry points like the hit Starz series "Outlander," talk of Scotland has been rolling off plenty of American tongues in recent months. And it's never long before the talk turns to food. Scotland's reputation in this department stinks. It's battered and deep-fried candy bars, at its most flattering; the dreaded haggis, at its least. Such characterizations, of course, are more cockamamie than cock-a-leekie soup without the prunes.
