  • Survivors of the Aurora shooting have to pay at least $700,000 to theater chain

    After a settlement deal fell apart, four survivors of the 2012 Aurora movie theater shooting are left having to pay the Cinemark chain at least $700,000. The failed settlement and financial repercussions were laid out Tuesday by the Los Angeles Times, which pieced together the story through interviews with people involved in the talks between the owners of the Century Aurora 16 mutliplex and 41 plaintiffs, including survivors and relatives of victims. A federal judge overseeing their case had advised the plaintiffs that they should settle with Cinemark within 24 hours. Another group of survivors had filed a state lawsuit, and a jury decided Cinemark could not have foreseen the shooting, which left 12 dead and more than 70 injured during a showing of The Dark Knight Rises.

  • Trump makes a familiar mistake about American political history

    “The Republican Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln. Not bad,” said Trump, speaking at a rally in the Seattle suburb of Everett. “Not bad. It’s also the party of freedom, equality and opportunity.”   “It is the Democratic Party that is the party of slavery, the party of Jim Crow and the party of opposition,” Trump said, drawing boos from the supportive crowd, which was heavily white. As the Washington Post’s report noted, Trump was reading from prepared remarks, which sometimes gives him trouble: his mention of “party of opposition,” for example, was supposed to be “part of oppression.” Nevertheless, it was only a matter of time before Trump, more pundit than candidate, adopted one of the more

  • After Being Stared Down by a Couple in Cracker Barrel, This Dad Received a Note About Parenting

    When Kevon Smith Sr. sat down for breakfast at Cracker Barrel with his son Kevon Jr. in Willoughby, OH, he had no idea he was going to make headlines just for being a good dad. Kevon noticed a couple staring and smiling at him and his 3-month-old son, and although he was confused, he just went on with the meal. "I noticed this older couple over in the corner," he said. "They kept smiling at me and I was looking at my son like, 'What is going on?'" But when Kevon left the restaurant, it all made sense, as he saw a note on his car from the couple praising his parenting along with cash to cover his breakfast. "Today your meal is on my wife and me," it read. "Enjoy that baby as long as God intends.

  • Powerful earthquake hits central Italy (84 photos)

    Italy held a state funeral in pouring rain on Tuesday, Aug. 30, for some of the victims of an earthquake which leveled mountain communities last week, killing at least 292 people. Hundreds of mourners sheltered in a marquee or under umbrellas at the service for 28 victims, including two children, in the outskirts of the town of Amatrice. An effigy of the crucified Christ hung above a makeshift altar. Behind it lay a crumpled building, one of dozens devastated in the town by the Aug. 24 quake. The scene was framed by tree-covered mountains. (Reuters) See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Tumblr

  • Mark Cuban lays out why he believes Donald Trump 'won't and can't' release his taxes

    Billionaire business mogul Mark Cuban explained in a series of tweets on Wednesday why he thinks Republican nominee Donald Trump "won't and can't release his tax returns." Cuban, the owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and a star of ABC's "Shark Tank," used a 2013 deposition from Trump — uploaded by The Washington Post as a part of its "Trump Revealed" project — to make his point. In that deposition, Trump said in response to a question about the development of Trump properties in Las Vegas and Chicago that he set up single-use subchapter S corporations to develop projects. He said he did not use the Trump Organization for those types of projects. According to the Internal Revenue Service, S-corporation

"It was not just that history did not support the traditional narratives of Islam, but rather that history proved to be entirely incompatible with Islamic origins," writes Nabeel Qureshi (emphasis his), author of the book No God But One: Allah or Jesus?

  • This May Be the Scariest Study on Obamacare Yet -- The Motley Fool

    When enacted in January 2014, the Affordable Care Act was expected to turn the healthcare industry on its head. And in some ways, it certainly has. As of March 31, there were 11.1 million paying ACA customers. Mind you, this figure doesn't take into account the millions of individuals and families who have benefited from the expansion of Medicaid in 31 out of 50 possible states. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the uninsured rate hit an all-time low of just 9.1% at the end of 2015. What the data would suggest is that the ACA (or Obamacare, as it's more commonly known) has greatly improved medical access for a large swath of the population -- namely, people with low

  • Angry Texas Judge Confronts U.S. Over Immigration Plan ‘Lies’

    Lawyers for the federal government have been squirming for more than a year under the threat of punishment from a Texas judge who’s convinced they lied to him about President Obama’s immigration program. They may be uncomfortable a while longer. When U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen in Brownsville blocked administration plans to shield more than 4 million undocumented immigrants from deportation and give them work permits, he extracted a promise from Justice Department attorneys -- in person and in writing -- that “nothing would happen” before his order took effect. Hanen didn’t hide his fury when government officials issued about 100,000 work permits in spite of the department’s assurances.
