THE Staffordshire bull terrier has been named Britain’s top dog. The controversial mutts topped 217 breeds, including the labrador and springer spaniel, on ITV show Britain’s Top 100 Dogs Live.

Ben Fogle, who hosted the show with Sara Cox, had been caught up in controversy too when he was accused of labelling Staffies dangerous – a claim he firmly denies. Here, AMY JONES reveals the hero Staffies rebuilding their reputation.'He woke us up as house fire raged' AT 3.45am, Jordan Ash was woken by his dog Diesel manically barking, scratching and pulling at the duvet.

POLITICS 08/21/2018 11:54 am ET Influential parents accused Riverdale Country School of leftist “indoctrination,” and now two teachers are gone. A parable about the real political correctness. Robert Silverman On Assignment For HuffPost On the morning of May 15, a day after Israeli soldiers shot and killed more than 60 largely unarmed Palestinian protesters on the Gaza–Israel border and injured thousands more, Joel Doerfler, a history teacher at New York City’s elite Riverdale Country School, decided to post The New York Times’ front page headline and accompanying photos in the hallway outside his classroom. “ISRAELIS KILL DOZENS IN GAZA,” read the headline, to which Doerfler added a personal note: “I support Palestinian human rights.” Doerfler, now 74 years old, had been a member of the faculty at Riverdale for more than 25 years, heading the history department since 1992.
