    An Oklahoma woman convicted of second-degree murder for shoving her hubby out of the window of their high-rise apartment was found dead in her prison cell on Monday, officials said. Amber Hilberling, 25, who was serving a 25-year prison sentence for the 2011 death of Joshua Hilberling was officially pronounced dead at 5:33 p.m. at the Mabel Bassett Correctional Center in McLoud, OK, according to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. The medical’s examiner’s office will determine Hilberling’s cause of death, but the woman’s parents who spoke exclusively to KTUL-ABC 8, said that medical staff told them that the death was being treated as a suicide, according to the news channel. Hilberling’s stepfather, Bryan Whitlock, who said he spoke to Hilberling the night before, told KTUL that there is “no way” his stepdaughter’s death was a suicide.

  • The Cubs were so bad in Game 1 that Cleveland police are worried

    The Chicago Cubs turned in a disappointing performance during their 6-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians in Game 1 of the World Series. Corey Kluber and the Indians’ big, bad bullpen completely dominated Chicago’s bats, giving up just seven hits over nine shutout innings. While that would normally be good news to the people of Cleveland, one local group seemed a bit concerned about the Cubs’ offensive struggles in Game 1.

  • Canoes Reek Of Genocide, Theft And White Privilege, Professor Claims

    Forget Halloween costumes and yoga, there’s a new symbol of cultural appropriation—the canoe. According to Misao Dean, Professor of English at the University of Victoria, the canoe can be a symbol of colonialism, imperialism and genocide due to history. She also accused the canoers of cultural appropriation because they are primarily white men and have a privileged place in society. In a radio interview for CBC Radio, which wasn’t picked by the Internet until several months later, she claimed “we have a whole set of narratives that make the canoe into a kind of morally untouchable symbol, something that seems natural, that seems ordinary, and seems to promote values that we ascribe to.” “But

It’s not a nice feeling and I’ve had to learn to love myself more every day and tune out the negativity, which helps a lot!” (A 2015 survey revealed between 52 and 67 percent of Senegalese women use skin lightening products, Quartz previously reported.)

  • Dreaded Polar Vortex May Be Shifting

    The polar vortex in recent years has brought the kind of miserable cold to northern states that made it hard to breathe outside. We’re probably in for more of the same. That’s the finding of a new study published yesterday in the journal Nature that finds that as the Arctic warms, it is shifting the polar vortex to Europe. That in turn will bring more bursts of frigid cold to North America. Those temperature drops could lead to miserable days in February and March, the research finds. Conversely, those drops in temperature could offset some of global warming’s effect in those regions, said Martyn Chipperfield, professor of atmospheric chemistry at the University of Leeds and a co-author of the

Skip the cauliflower crust pizza and stick to easy recipes.   I started my Whole30 odyssey by searching all the drool-worthy recipes online: Turkey and pumpkin chili, Brussels sprout salads, sweet potatoes every which way. I landed on a cauliflower hummus that looked even creamier and more delicious than the traditional garbanzo bean version (no beans allowed on Whole30), so I decided to give it a go. And it was a total flop. But the chunky hummus taught me a valuable lesson: Playing to foods' strengths is way more palette-pleasing than trying

This week in BuzzFeed, the British journalist James Ball published a brutal recollection of his brief stint as a WikiLeaks collaborator and employee half a decade ago. In Ball’s account, entitled “Inside the Strange, Paranoid World of Julian Assange,” the WikiLeaks founder misleads underlings, settles personal scores, and inexplicably tolerates anti-Semites.
