Europe’s nightmare: Terror threats both large and small

LONDON — The military-style attack in Paris has made clear that Europe faces an evolving, ever-more complex terror threat no longer dominated by a few big players. It’s not just al-Qaida, or Islamic State. It’s not just the disciples of some fiery, hate-filled preachers. Instead, security experts say, it’s now an Internet-driven, generalized rage against […]

Germany votes for Merkel at home, austerity abroad

Even though the immediate postwar Europe is a fading memory, Germans still opt for stability and familiarity when they head to the polls.

Stealing hearts: Aria Schilling thrives after December surgery

VACAVILLE — Aria Schilling is only 18 months old and knows how to keep an audience captive. She lifts up her top to expose a scar, the result of heart surgery in early December.

The Vacaville tot made news around the nation last fall as her parents battled their insurance provider to have the operation performed at the hospital, and with the doctor, most familiar with their daughter’s health.

The Schillings said they spent months preparing for the surgery only to be told a few days before the scheduled date that it wouldn’t happen because they were using a physician and facility out of the insurer’s network.
