New charges were filed Thursday against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner, ratcheting up the legal pressure on them as they prepare for a trial later this year. A new indictment has long been expected in special counsel Robert Mueller's prosecution of Manafort and his right-hand man, Rick Gates, on fraud and money laundering charges. Manafort served as President Donald Trump's campaign chairman from June to August 2016. Gates also served as a top official on Trump's campaign. The new indictment contains 32 counts, including tax charges.
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump on Thursday doubled down on his idea of arming some teachers as a deterrent for school shootings and praised the top leadership of the National Rifle Association as "Great American Patriots." In morning tweets and later at the White House, Trump claimed the strategy of arming teachers would be far less costly than hiring guards. He said "gun-free" school zones make it like "going in for ice cream" for school shooters and said on Twitter that with his strategy, "ATTACKS WOULD END!"
The World War II vet threw one of his legs over the edge of his hospital bed, gasped for air and called out desperately to an empty room: "Help me, help me, help me." Minutes later, 89-year-old James Dempsey, who had pressed a call button in his room, cried out again: "Help me. Help me. Help." It was early on a February morning in 2014 - and Dempsey was dying, all alone. The wrenching scene was captured on hidden video camera his family had placed in the room at Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation. It showed a staffer at the nursing home check on him, then leave.
Two millennia ago, a small Greco-Roman temple in present-day Turkey awed and enthralled its residents. Just beyond its stone gate, in a grotto shrouded in a heavy mist, a strange force worked dark deeds: Bulls ushered inside would lie down and perish; the castrated priests in charge would emerge unscathed.
When the Olympics come around, the cable guy has an awful way of making us feel like criminals. It happens like this: You're telling your buddy about Lindsey Vonn's big downhill run, but he doesn't have a way to watch. It's possible to stream all this stuff through apps in 2018 - but he needs a password from a pay TV provider. And then comes the digital dilemma. Can you give your log-in to your friend? What about your kid in college? The same issue returns around big Netflix releases and HBO when there's a new season of "Game of Thrones." Is that sharing ... or stealing?
After a week of media silence following the school shooting in Florida, the National Rifle Association went on the offensive in its first public response to the massacre, pushing back against law enforcement officials, the media, gun-control advocates and the teenage survivors of the massacre who have pleaded for stricter gun laws.
Jimmy Kimmel called out conspiracy theorists attacking the credibility of a group of Florida teenagers who, overnight, have become some of the most vocal advocates for gun control, after a lone gunman killed 17 people at their high school.
GANGNEUNG, South Korea - Over the past four years, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson had practiced the move thousands of times. And she had failed thousands of times. It was so intricate, sort of a triple maneuver: a forehand fake, a backhand fake and then a quick transition back to the forehand to shoot the puck, all while selling each herky-jerky con with deft skating.
The police were coming with questions about a 14-year-old girl, Snapchat and a motel room. Jonathan Hanks did not wait for the knock on his door. The 33-year-old from Camarillo, California, climbed behind the wheel of his black Nissan Versa on Wednesday morning, Feb. 21, leaving his apartment before law enforcement arrived.
In a triumph of data collection and analysis, a team of researchers based at Oxford University has built the tools necessary to calculate how far any dot on a map is from a city - or anything else. The research, published in Nature last month, allows us to pin down a question that has long evaded serious answers: Where is the middle of nowhere?
