• After ‘jealous rage,’ killer sentenced to life without parole in Target parking lot murder

    The eight-foot projection screen dropped from a courtroom ceiling. The surveillance video began to play. And from her seat in the second row, Cassandra Atkens — in court Thursday to watch her daughter’s killer be sentenced — knew what she was about to see. The video showed how light it still was at 7:17 p.m. June 1, 2015, in a Target store parking lot in Germantown where Atkens’s daughter, Mariam “Shadé” Adebayo, had agreed to meet ex-boyfriend Donald Bricker one more time. She was there to tell him it really was over. He pulled up in his truck, then got in her car and brought out a .44-caliber, replica-style black-powder revolver — a gun that he’d ordered online and that had arrived just that

  • 'I'm the victim,' Iowa teacher who had sex with student says on 'Dr. Phil'

    DES MOINES — A substitute teacher accused of having sex with a 17-year-old high school student in Cedar Rapids claims the student seduced her. Mary Beth Haglin was charged in July with sexual exploitation by a teacher. On Monday, she appeared on Dr. Phil, accusing the student of seducing her and sharing sexy photos with his friends. “Many people see him as the victim and me as the perpetrator. From a psychological standpoint and from every other standpoint, I feel like I am the victim,” Haglin said on the Dr. Phil show, citing the student's intelligence and “elevated vocabulary” as part of the seduction. Haglin pleaded not guilty to sexual exploitation by a school employee. Her trial is set to

  • Hillary's Security Detail Hated Her So Much, They Laughed When She Fell and Broke Her Arm

    It's no secret that there is no love lost between Hillary Clinton and her security detail, but the intensity of their dislike for the woman who may become our next president is still a bit jarring. According to the New York Post, members of her diplomatic security detail while she was secretary of state hated her so much that they "privately snickered" after she fell down and broke her arm. The incident happened in the State Department basement in 2009, one of her former guards told the Post. Clinton, then 61, was on her way to meet President Obama when she took a tumble and ended up in the hospital with a shattered right elbow. “We sort of got the last laugh.

  • Donald Trump's national political director 'steps back' from campaign

    With only 19 days left until the election, Donald Trump's national political director said he has decided to "take a step back from the campaign." In a statement to Politico, Jim Murphy said he has not resigned, but for "personal reasons" is taking a lesser role. Murphy is a longtime GOP operative who joined the Trump campaign in June, and has been establishing field programs in battleground states and serving as a point person between Trump and the RNC. Trump is behind in several key states, and some Republicans worry that in swing states, he doesn't have the same exposure as Hillary Clinton. Numerous Trump aides told Politico that in recent days, Murphy, a friend of Trump's former campaign

  • 34-Year-Old Model Katie May Died From A Stroke—Here’s What You Should Know

    Update Oct. 19, 2016: According to information from the Los Angeles County Coroner released today, the stroke that killed 34-year-old model Katie May in February was caused by "an injury sustained during a 'neck manipulation by chiropractor,'" People reports. The coroner's assessment is that when May visited a chiropractor for an adjustment in her neck, it caused a tear in her left vertebral artery. "The tear blocked blood flow to May’s brain and caused the stroke," People reports. It was previously believed that a block in her carotid artery following a fall during a photoshoot may have been the cause of the fatal stroke.

  • Report: Flake is ready to move forward with Garland's nomination

    Republican lawmakers have long refused to hold a vote on President Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court. It has nothing to do with his qualifications, they say, it’s just that the next president should be able to choose. But now that polls are leaning heavily in Hillary Clinton’s favor, Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake is willing to talk qualifications. In an interview with Politico on Thursday, Flake said it may be time to approve Garland — who is relatively moderate and well-respected on both sides of the aisle — during the lame-duck session if Clinton wins the election. Garland has been sitting in limbo since March, when he was first nominated to fill the vacancy left when Justice Antonin Scalia died

King Mohammed VI of Morocco agreed to give the money to the Clinton Foundation, provided that it hold a convention in his country in May 2015 with Clinton as the keynote speaker. But Clinton realized that the conference, slated for a month after she announced her run for president, would hurt her candidacy. “No matter what happens, she will be in Morocco hosting CGI [Clinton Global Initiative] on May 5-7, 2015.

  • Basketball player turns a missed dunk into a trick shot that's too good to be true

    Whether it was on purpose or by accident, this shot by a Kennesaw State basketball player is amazing. I don’t know how Jordan Jones did it either, but I have a suspicion the missed dunk wasn’t really a miss. Look how quickly he turns to look at the far hoop. He hasn’t even landed on the ground yet! And he doesn’t even seem surprised here at the end. Just self-satisfied. But don’t get me wrong, I would be too, if I had pulled that off. Kennsaw State’s strategy for this season should include Jones repeating that in a game, leaving their opponents so distracted trying to figure out how he did it that they don’t notice the rest of the team scoring ALL the points.

    Ukraine and Poland’s parliaments have approved a resolution, considering moves by both the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany as the reason for the start of World War II. The resolution, called the Declaration of Remembrance and Solidarity, states that the non-aggression pact between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany was what led to the two militaries invading Poland and then the Baltics. "We point to the fact that the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact, signed August 23, 1939, struck between the two totalitarian regimes—the Communist Soviet Union and Nazi Germany—led to the ignition of World War II, prompted by German aggression, which the Soviet Union adopted on 17 September,” the document reads.

    A gracious letter written by Republican President George H.W. Bush after he lost the 1992 election to Democrat Bill Clinton is going viral – offering quite a contrast to the comments current Republican nominee Donald Trump made during Wednesday night’s debate. For weeks, Trump has called the election “rigged,” pointing blame at the media and potential voter fraud. During the final debate, the GOP nominee was asked to address these accusations, as well as answer once and for all whether he would “absolutely accept” the result of this election. Some found the candidate’s response shocking. “I will look at it at the time. I’m not looking at anything now. I’ll look at it at the time,” Trump said.

    While some might count evil-eye jewelry as a trend, it probably means a lot to the wearer. And while there are plenty of stylish designs — Jennifer Aniston's necklace included — many cultures view the symbol as protection or a curse. Of course, we don't know exactly what message Jen is sending with hers. From a style perspective, the Jennifer Meyer piece just looks plain cool with a pair of boyfriend jeans, Gucci loafers, and a ribbed tank. But perhaps Jen didn't just choose her pendant because it brings out the blue shade of her denim. With all the talk in the media about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce, many are looking to Jen, Brad's famous ex. If we didn't know any better, we'd guess

F-150 continues to receive favorable reviews by major review agencies and sites. “With models that now boast the highest tow rating, biggest payload and best gasoline fuel economy in the half-ton segment, Ford’s switch to a revolutionary all-aluminum body has paid off in a big way,” says edmunds.com.   Caranddriver.com gives F-150 five stars. The problem is that Ford’s models, including the F-150 model, aren’t selling fast enough as evidenced by the precipitous decline in the company’s sales in recent months—see table.
