Jurors on Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2021 convicted the three white men charged in the death of Ahmaud Arbery, the Black man who was chased and fatally shot while running through their neighborhood in an attack that became part of the larger national reckoning on racial injustice. (Pool, file) AP The three Georgia men found guilty of murdering Ahmaud Arbery are likely to appeal their convictions but could see even more jail time once they are tried in federal court. An almost all-white jury on Wednesday convicted Greg and Travis McMichael and their neighbor, William "Roddie" Bryan, in the death of Arbery, a 25-year-old black man gunned down while jogging through the McMichaels and Bryan's Satilla Shores neighborhood near the port city of Brunswick. A nine-count indictment charged all three men with one count of malice murder, four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of false imprisonment, and one...
    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — An effort by prosecutors at Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial to portray one of the men he shot as a hero never got off the ground Friday — and one legal expert said they were probably fortunate it didn’t. Rittenhouse, 18, is on trial on several counts including homicide in the August 2020 shootings during street unrest in Kenosha. Among the dead was Anthony Huber, a 26-year-old protester who was seen on bystander video hitting Rittenhouse with a skateboard before he was fatally shot. Huber’s great-aunt, Susan Hughes, was testifying about Huber in a matter-of-fact manner, talking about their relationship, how he ended up at the protest and how he always carried a skateboard. Then prosecutor James Kraus posed a question: “We’ve seen video here, and you may have seen video as well, that Anthony Huber ran towards Kyle Rittenhouse while Kyle Rittenhouse was armed. Were you surprised, when you heard about that? Were you surprised by his actions?” As defense attorney Corey Chirafisi swiftly objected, Kraus posed another: “Had you ever seen Anthony Huber...
    Dog the Bounty Hunter's estranged daughter has dismissed his manhunt for Brian Laundrie as a 'publicity stunt' and mocked him for parading a Monster Energy can as a sign he could be closing in on the fugitive.  Cecily Chapman, 28, told the Sun she thinks her reality star father Duane Chapman, 68, needs to 'back off' and let law enforcement do their job as they track down the sole person of interest wanted in connection to the death of Gabby Petito.  'It's just a publicity stunt. That's really what it is. He needs to back off and let the FBI handle it,' said Chapman. 'A real network would be aware of the situation and I'm pretty sure everyone knows that this is a f**kng publicity stunt.'  Chapman voiced her suspicions about her father's true intentions as it emerged that Dog has already pitched a show about his hunt for Laundrie to at least one network. A source told The Wrap he put the idea to A&E - the cable channel which aired his  Dog The Bounty Hunter show for nine series before...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — A war of words between Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and Mayor Lori Lightfoot escalated on Tuesday, a day after the mayor called for charges in a shootout in the North Austin neighborhood, saying there is video evidence and officers who witnessed the crime. However, Foxx on Tuesday reiterated that there is not yet sufficient evidence to file charges in the case, and said top brass at the Chicago Police Department agrees with her assessment of the case, saying it was “inappropriate” for Lightfoot to discuss the facts of the case in public while it remains under investigation.

The dispute stems from a shootout last week in the North Austin neighborhood, which left one person dead and two others wounded. The shootout was witnessed by Chicago police officers, and caught on surveillance video, but no charges have been filed in...
    (CNN Business)Frances Haugen, the Facebook whistleblower who released tens of thousands of pages of internal research and documents, said the social media company could "destroy" her for speaking out, but she believed that "as long as Facebook is operating in the dark, it is accountable to no one."In her prepared testimony obtained by CNN on Monday ahead of her Tuesday appearance before the Senate subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security, Haugen said, "I believe what I did was right and necessary for the common good — but I know Facebook has infinite resources, which it could use to destroy me."Haugen added: "I came forward because I recognized a frightening truth: almost no one outside of Facebook knows what happens inside Facebook."

    This summer’s blockbuster read was a congressionally mandated government report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence titled Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. It had a little something for the UFO believer and nonbeliever alike — a minimal something, but something nonetheless. The U.S. government has spent decades scoffing at UFO reports, often dismissing them as hoaxes, spoofs, or optical illusions. The Pentagon even renamed UFOs as UAPs, “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena,” to indicate the uncertainly about whether what people were seeing were actually “objects” that were “flying” or simply something that looked like a flying object. The nine-page declassified report to Congress examined 144 documented reports since 2004, mostly from U.S. military pilots, and concluded that at least 80 of the sightings, including three recorded on cockpit videos by Navy pilots “probably do represent physical objects,” noting that they “registered across multiple sensors,” including radar, infrared, electro-optical, weapon seekers, and visual observation. And in 18 cases, the objects also appeared to “exhibit unusual flight characteristics” with the ability to “maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernable...
    Robert Kopp, Rutgers University Humans are unequivocally warming the planet, and that's triggering rapid changes in the atmosphere, oceans and polar regions, and increasing extreme weather around the world, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns in a new report. The IPCC released the first part of its much anticipated Sixth Assessment Report on Aug. 9, 2021. In it, 234 scientists from around the globe summarized the current climate research on how the Earth is changing as temperatures rise and what those changes will mean for the future. We asked climate scientist Robert Kopp, a lead author of the chapter on Earth's oceans, ice and sea level rise, about the profound changes underway. What are the IPCC report's most important overall messages in your view? At the most basic level, the facts about climate change have been clear for a long time, with the evidence just continuing to grow. As a result of human activities, the planet is changing at a rate unprecedented for at least thousands of years. These changes are affecting...
    Former President Donald Trump told top Justice Department officials to 'say the election is corrupt' as his election overturn efforts were reaching a crescendo in December 2020, internal government notes reveal. The hand-written notes, released by a congressional committee, reveal how Trump how Trump told the heads of the top U.S. law enforcement agency they should pursue his claims of fraud and that President Biden had not really won the election – even as they pushed back on his wildest claims and scribbled won his musings and directives.

    d3sign/Getty Images Most weight loss products aren't backed by scientific evidence, according to a new research review.  Studies supporting the products are flawed or don't show significant benefits, researchers found. Six supplements have some evidence. However, more research and safety regulation is needed.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Most weight loss supplements on the market are a waste of time and money, research suggests. A handful of products, however, have some evidence to support their effectiveness, according to a study published June 23 in the journal Obesity.  Researchers from multiple institutions, including Dartmouth College and the Medical College of Wisconsin, looked at 315 randomized controlled trials on 14 different weight loss supplements. They evaluated the quality of evidence as well as whether the supplements worked for weight loss.  They found that the vast majority of the studies had serious problems, including a small sample size, incomplete data, selective reporting, or lack of blinding for participants.  These findings highlight a need for more rigorous research, the study's coauthors wrote in an accompanying perspective on the study.

    US intelligence officials can't explain what dozens of mysterious recent UFO sightings are - but they do not show evidence of alien spacecraft, a bombshell Pentagon report will allegedly say. Officials who have worked closely with the report confirm the vast majority of the 120 sightings made by US Navy personnel over the past two decades were not American military or other government technology, the New York Times reported on Thursday. Read our UFO Report for the very latest news and updates... 6A government report said that there was 'no evidence' Navy pilots were seeing alien spacecrafts 6The Pentagon is set to release an unclassified report to Congress on June 25Credit: AFP Those findings - due to be presented publicly to Congress later this month - eliminate the possibility that the Navy pilots may have seen some form of secret government aircraft, the Times said. However, what the sightings are will reportedly remain a mystery. Senior officials briefed on the findings said that because the report is inconclusive, the government could not definitively rule out the alien spacecraft theories. An...
    The 14-year-old boy charged with murdering a 13-year-old cheerleader Tristyn Bailey in Florida was held in custody on Tuesday morning for another three weeks while prosecutors decide whether to charge him as an adult and police revealed more of their case against him.  Aiden Fucci, 14, was been named by police as the suspect in the killing of 13-year-old Tristyn Bailey.  On Sunday night, he took a selfie in the back of a cop car which he then posted on Snapchat with the caption 'Hey guys has inybody (sic) seen Tristyn lately'. It was before her body was found in woods.   Now, police say they will use that 'egregious' selfie as evidence against him and that it proves he was 'proud of what he did'.  'I know it looks egregious with him making those statements in that car, but that is now evidence that we gather and use against him. So that just makes our case a better case to present to the State Attorney’s office and to present to a jury down the road saying this was his mindset.  'This is...
                      
    House Democratic Whip James C. Clyburn says he does not believe there is a two-thirds majority in the Senate to convict President Trump of incitement of insurrection – but said new things could come up at trial that could move the needle. Clyburn made the comments hours after the House voted to impeach Trump for the second time – with 10 House Republicans crossing the aisle to make it a bipartisan effort after a mob of Trump supporters ransacked the Capitol. The votes sets up a Senate trial now likely to commence after Trump leaves office. 'Well I don't know,' he said when asked in an NPR interview if the votes were there to convict. 'I know what Mitch McConnell seems to be thinking. I suspect that there is support. I don't think – there's 17 Republicans that would be needed – I don't think there's 17. Not at this point,' he said. House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-SC, says he doesn't think there are currently 17 Republicans to convict President Trump in a Senate impeachment trial Democrats will have...
    President Trump blasted judges' decisions on his legal challenges to the 2020 election's results in his first interview since Election Day. "We’re not allowed to put in our proof. They say you don’t have standing," Trump told "Sunday Morning Futures." "I would like to file one nice big beautiful lawsuit, talking about this and many other things, with tremendous proof. We have affidavits, we have hundreds and hundreds of affidavits." DEMOCRAT ELISSA SLOTKIN URGES PARTY TAKE A LESSON FROM TRUMP: 'HE DOESN'T TALK DOWN TO ANYBODY' "You mean as president of the United States, I don't have standing? What kind of a court system is this?" Trump continued.

    (CNN)The peaceful and orderly transition of presidential power is a hallmark of our constitutional democracy embodied in the 12th, 20th and 25th Amendments. The 2008 transition between President George W. Bush's administration and Barack Obama's is often referenced as the standard for presidential transitions because of the high level of bipartisan cooperation exhibited by both teams.It's an expression of the most deeply rooted of our patriotic American values — allegiance to the republic and the system of self-governance that has guided us for 244 years.JUST WATCHEDBiden begins to build staff despite Trump impeding transitionReplayMore Videos ...MUST WATCHBiden begins to build staff despite Trump impeding transition 01:22With Election Day behind us, our country is entering an uncertain moment.

    (CNN)President Donald Trump suffered a decisive loss in his quest for reelection. The voters spoke and their verdict is clear: The Trump presidency will end on Jan. 20, 2021. What is not clear is just how much more damage Trump will do to the country before that date arrives. Frida GhitisAfter four years of undermining US democracy, Trump has launched his most direct attack against it, rejecting the results of the election and mobilizing his most fervent supporters to try either to overturn the result -- which seems all but impossible -- or, more likely, create enough doubt about the results that Trump can claim he was cheated and remains undefeated. That would protect his self-image as some version of invincible and thus safeguard his political power to influence US politics or even run again in 2024.The Trump campaign, CNN reports, is planning a "messaging blitz" to amplify his false claims that the election was stolen. Unless someone can prevail on Trump to accept reality, the coming days and weeks could bring campaign-style rallies -- potential Covid-spreading events -- of...
    The skeletal remains of two newborns that lived some 30,000 years ago are deemed the earliest known evidence of identical twins. Researchers analyzed the ancient DNA of two male infants unearthed in Austria, determining the pair shared an entire genome. The analysis also reveals that both were full-term, but one live six to seven months and the other 13 to 14 weeks postpartum.  The remains were uncovered in an oval-shaped grave pit, with each of the bodies embedded in red ochre and their heads facing east. Both of the bodies were also buried with grave goods - the youngest had mammoth ivory beads around his pelvis and the other was adorned with a necklace made of mollusks.

Hong Three UK organizations have released new reports advising people to get enough vitamin D, either through sunlight or supplements, as a precaution against the novel coronavirus.  Several previous studies have linked vitamin D deficiency to higher risk of severe coronavirus infection.  However, there's not yet sufficient evidence to fully understand if the nutrient plays a causal role in preventing the disease, although it has been shown to support a healthy immune system.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. While there's still no evidence that vitamin D can cure or prevent coronavirus, three major health organizations in the UK are advising people to ensure they get enough vitamin D, from the sun or supplements, to be on the safe side.
