• IT HAPPENED TO ME: I Dated a Guy Who Lived in a Trap House

    I was working at a hotel and in a torrid, heartbreaking (for me, at least) on-and-off relationship with a guy who was, in the words of Hannah Horvath, "someone who treats my heart like monkey meat." It consisted of nothing more than me driving an hour out of my way every weekend to have a ...

  • Cousin of Slain Baton Rouge Cop Was Arrested for the Massacre

    ADDIS, Louisiana — On Sunday, July 17, Damarcus Alexander stopped at Walmart so his best friend could buy a white shirt for church.  They left Dallas, Texas at 4 a.m. bound for Belle Rose, Louisiana, a small town an hour south of Baton Rouge, so his friend could sing at a church. They entered the Walmart outside of Baton Rouge, they changed into their church clothes, and continued driving. They didn’t know it but someone had just called 911 describing two black men entering the store and changing clothes just after Gavin Long shot six law enforcement officers across the river. One of the three dead was Alexander’s cousin, Montrell Jackson. He was my big cuz,” Alexander said, adding their families

  • Here's What Krauthammer Thinks Was the 'Most Astonishing' Line of the DNC

    Charles Krauthammer joined Bret Baier tonight to preview Hillary Clinton's big speech at the Democratic National Convention and reveal what he's found to be the "most astonishing" line of the DNC thus far. Krauthammer said that line came in President Obama's speech last night, when he suggested Donald Trump threatens American values in the same ways Islamists or foreign dictators do. "That’s why anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues, will always fail in the end," Obama said. Krauthammer acknowledged he's not a big fan of Trump, but he also wouldn't compare the Republican presidential nominee to Hitler, Stalin or bin Laden. "Trump

  • Reporter who added some swagger to the D.B. Cooper legacy comes clean

     Just two weeks after the FBI finally shut down its active investigation of the 45-year-old D.B. Cooper skyjacking case, James Long has come forward to confess his role. “I got the name wrong,” the former reporter said this week, admitting to a cardinal sin in journalism. But he decided to no longer remain quiet while another reporter who died 15 years ago took the blame for turning hijacker Dan Cooper into D.B. Cooper. Long can laugh about it today, and the other reporter died knowing he’d been credited for a scoop that night. The error didn’t hinder the investigation, since neither D.B. nor Dan Cooper was likely the skyjacker’s real name, authorities figured. But let the record show that it

  • Brett Favre and his wife Deanna through the years (17 photos)

    Brett Favre chose his wife, Deanna, to present him at the induction ceremony in Canton, Ohio on Aug. 6. She will become only the second wife to present an inductee — the first was Mike Singletary’s wife, Kim, back in 1998. “Deanna is the best teammate I’ve ever had,” Favre said. “She has been by my side throughout this journey and I’m so excited that she gets to play such an important role for me.” Favre and his wife have been through a lot in their time together. They believe they met when Deanna, now 47, was 7 years old — and she has stuck beside Favre through his indiscretions and his past addiction to pain killers. Deanna also is a breast cancer survivor and an avid activist for breast cancer research. — Eric Edholm

  • Bill O’Reilly irretrievably loses it over White House slaves

    PHILADELPHIA — If James Murdoch and Lachlan Murdoch are looking for a moment in which to make a statement about their vision for Fox News, now is it. These two brothers — sons of mogul Rupert Murdoch and two-thirds of the triumvirate at Fox News parent company 21st Century Fox — are widely known to have resented the way that recently resigned Fox News chief Roger Ailes ran the network. Well, it’s been a week since Ailes left, and his offensive style of broadcasting lives on. On Wednesday night, host Bill O’Reilly took to the network’s airwaves to attempt a defense of his comments of last night regarding first lady Michelle Obama’s Monday night speech here at the Democratic National Convention.

  • Donald Trump Jr. is convinced Obama lifted this line from his speech

    Back in 2010, President Obama said to a crowd in Cleveland, Ohio: "That is not the America I know." And while Obama may have said it first, Donald Trump Jr. is convinced he's the one that actually came up with the line after it appeared in both men's speeches at their respective party conventions this month. On Thursday, the day after Obama delivered his speech to the Democratic National Convention, Donald Jr. leveled an accusation of plagiarism against Obama for using the phrase, which he'd used last week in his address to the Republican National Convention. In fact, Donald Jr. suggested everyone should be just as angry about this incidence of plagiarism as they were last week about Melania

    After Tawny Nelson's car broke down at night in the pouring rain with her four young daughters crying in the back, countless people just drove by as she begged for help. The single mother of four explained that things had been rough since her partner left — her vehicle was in such bad shape that she only drove if absolutely necessary and her cell phone was disconnected. She and her children desperately needed groceries so they made a quick trip to the store. However, one of her girls accidentally left a light on in the car and they returned to a completely drained battery. "I must have asked more than twenty people in the course of two hours for a jump," she wrote to Frank Somerville, which he

  • Watch the Marine's F-35 test its gun pod for the first time

    Last week at the Naval Air Station at Patuxent River, Maryland, US Marines carried out the first successful test of the F-35B's GAU-22 gun pod, Business Insider has confirmed. Business Insider previously reported on the first test of the F-35A's integrated gun, but the gun pod, which will be used on the F-35B and C variants, is an entirely different animal. Instead of the integrated design of the Air Force's F-35A, the Marine Corps' F-35B and the Navy's F-35C will feature a 220 round, 25 mm gun in a modular pod. This means that the Navy and Marine variants, which launch from aircraft carriers or amphibious assault vessels, will have the option of excluding the gun to save weight and increase

    This poor pup forgot to bring his toy in from the yard. Now, the fox has found it! You might not have thought a fox would want a dog toy. Or maybe you thought a fox wouldn’t have even known what to do with a dog toy, even if he found it. But this fox sure caught on quickly. He’s having a blast! He’s throwing it in the air, pretending it’s a mouse or something to hunt. And he seems blissfully unaware of the toy’s owner a few yards away behind glass. The poor dog is throwing a fit! “That’s my toy,” he is saying, “Give it baaaaack. Mommy, mommy, make him give it baaack!” But the fox doesn’t seem to notice. He’s wayyy to busy having a great time. Foxes and dogs have a lot in common, but it’s important

    WINSLOW, Ariz. — Body-camera footage released by the city of Winslow on Wednesday shows the seconds leading up to the fatal shooting of a 27-year-old Navajo woman by a Winslow police officer, with the woman advancing toward the officer with a pair of silver scissors in her left hand. The video footage from March 27 shows the encounter between Loreal Tsingine and Officer Austin Shipley.

  • Trump & Kids Named, But Not Charged, In $250 Million Tax Evasion Case

    Last week, Donald Trump officially clinched the Republican nomination for President at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. While Trump and his family were at the convention, a story was making the rounds on social media, eventually landing in my inbox. The shocking allegations? Trump and two of his children were facing tax evasion charges: It’s a pretty sensational story and given the amount of attention heaped upon Trump’s reluctance to disclose his tax returns, (you can read my take on that here), it definitely attracted attention. There’s just one problem: it’s not true. What is true is that Trump is involved in a civil tax fraud case. But his involvement, and that of two

  • Cool-headed elephant fights off 14 lionesses in Zambia

    SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK, Zambia, July 27 (UPI) -- An elephant in Zambia demonstrated his ability to keep a cool head under pressure when he escaped being made into a meal by 14 female lions. The video, filmed by Jesse Nash on a tour with Normal Carr Safaris at the Chinzombo Safari Camp in Zambia, shows a group of 14 lionesses descending on a young elephant. The elephant, keeping calm, swats at the lionesses with his trunk while making his way to a nearby body of water. The pachyderm reaches the water, but only a handful of the predators decide to stay on shore while the more daring members of the pride give pursuit in the shallows -- including one lioness riding piggy-back on the elephant's

  • Here's Exactly How Much You Should Be Exercising If You Sit at a Desk All Day, Says Science

    The perils of sitting all day aren't good. Researchers have shown that remaining stationary for extended periods of time (like at your 9-to-5 desk job) can be detrimental to your health. While exercise is a big part of offsetting the harmful effects of sitting, it was unclear how many gym sessions were needed to help — until now. A new study, published in The Lancet, shows the ideal formula for counteracting the negative effects of a sedentary job. Instead of a fixed number of hours spent exercising, the ratio depends on how much you sit: people who work a typical eight-hour day should spend at least one hour each day moving; if you sit six hours a day, you should spend half an hour exercising.
