I've read a lot of stories on the vote either for or against independece for Scotland and I can't say with any certainly how it would have ended if they left the UK, but it appears the Scots didn't want to leave after all.
Scotland will vote to stay in the United Kingdom after rejecting independence, the BBC has predicted.
With 26 out of the country's 32 council areas having declared after Thursday's vote, the "No" side has a 54% of the vote, with the "Yes" campaign on 46%.
By 05:15 BST (06:15 GMT), the "No" campaign had more than 1,397,000 votes, with "Yes" on just over 1,176,000.
A total of 1,852,828 votes is needed for victory.
By Matt Dinger, Staff WriterA hearing in a civil lawsuit over the Ten Commandments monument on Capitol grounds is set for Friday morning.
The Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission is asking Oklahoma County District Judge Thomas Prince to rule in their favor.
The lawsuit, filed in August 2013, seeks to have the monument removed from state property on the grounds that it violates the First Amendment.
The American Civil Liberties Union is representing the plaintiffs in the case, which include a Baptist minister, a retired businessman and two former educators.
Lawyers from both sides have already submitted more than 100 pages in briefs and motions on the matter.
Prince can decide to rule on the case, take tomorrow’s arguments into consideration for a later judgment, or the case may proceed to trial.
