    Ghislaine Maxwell, 59, is on trial for allegedly procuring underage girls for pedophile Jeffrey Epstein,. She has pleaded not guilty to all charges  Schoolgirl outfits were found at Jeffrey Epstein's New York mansion when the FBI raided the property in 2019, Ghislaine Maxwell's trial heard on Friday. The agents found the 'small' costumes on the same floor as the massage room, the court heard. Judge Alison Nathan admitted the outfits into evidence for when they are raised by a witness. She also allowed into evidence a photo of Epstein's underage goddaughter in her underwear that hung outside the bedroom he allegedly shared with Maxwell at the house in Palm Beach which was found in 2005 when the FBI raised the house.  The prosecution can also use a photo kept on his desk of the same girl where she is on Epstein's lap and he appears to be 'pulling her underwear' and biting her bottom. Maxwell's attorney Christian Everdell said he worried that the image of the girl would make people think Epstein liked 'prepubescent' girls.  After Epstein's arrest in 2019...
    RESERVE, La. (AP) — Michael Coleman’s house is the last one standing on his tiny street, squeezed between a sprawling oil refinery that keeps him up at night and a massive grain elevator that covers his pickup with dust and worsens his breathing problems. Coleman, 65, points to the smokestacks billowing just outside his backyard. “Oh, when the plants came in, they built right on top of us,” he said. “We was surrounded by sugarcane, and now we’re surrounded by (industrial) plants.” The oil company offered him a buyout, but Coleman rejected it. “I’m waiting for a fair shake,” he said. In the meantime, he copes with high blood pressure, thyroid problems and other health issues that he attributes to decades of pollution from his industrial neighbors, a Marathon Petroleum refinery and a Cargill grain depot. St. John the Baptist Parish, where Coleman lives, is part of an 85-mile stretch from New Orleans to Baton Rouge officially known as the Mississippi River Chemical Corridor, but more commonly called Cancer Alley. The region contains several hotspots where cancer risks are far...
    When you're a perfectionist who likes things just so, there's nothing more irritating than spotting a tiny but crucial detail that's ruining the scene in front of you.  Constative has rounded up a selection of photos from around the world that were snapped by perfectionists who noticed small errors in everyday situations - including a supermarket shelf of neatly-aligned mustard, with one bottle upside down.  One snap shows a wife who repeatedly ripped messy holes in packaging rather than opening the seals properly, while another photo captures a line-up of cars all parked outside the designated bays.  And an unsettling snap of a garden shows a KitKat that's been nibbled at in the middle, rather than the chocolate fan breaking off the fingers.  It's what's inside that counts!

    Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky took aim at frequent foe Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday morning, claiming President Biden's chief medical adviser is acting like the 'all-high priest of science.'  He warned against making Fauci 'untouchable' in an interview with Fox & Friends, claiming it would throttle debate outside of the doctor's own 'edicts and mandates.'  Republican lawmakers have been blasting Fauci this week over an interview he gave to CBS on Sunday during which he dismissed GOP criticism of him and his work as lies and opposition to science.  The scientist also claimed Republicans are using him as a 'scapegoat' to shield from anger at Donald Trump.  'It's sort of a way of ending all debate because if you attack him or have any debate over any of his edicts or his mandates, you're attacking science,' Paul said on Tuesday. 'But this is a very, very dangerous sort of idea. The idea that a government bureaucrat represents science and that he is now untouchable - that it is sort of like you are now contradicting the all high priest...

Mum Melanie had taken her 14-year-old daughter’s phone at 8.30pm and left it plugged in outside her bedroom door. 3Mum Melanie shared her daughter's sneaky trick to steal back her confiscated phoneCredit: tiktok 3At first glance, it looks like the phone's still thereCredit: Tiktok At first glance, anyone would think the phone was clearly exactly where she’d left it, out of her daughter’s hands and safely outside her bedroom. On closer inspection, however, Melanie realised her daughter’s very clever scheme. Although the phone case was still outside the bedroom door, seemingly attached to the charger, the actual phone had been removed.

The mum said: “When your 14-year-old daughter has to hand her phone over at 8.30pm and leave it on charge outside my bedroom door… Trust no one!” The...

    A Wisconsin resident who let the suspect in the Christmas Parade killings into his home following the massacre has revealed how he sat on the sofa, called his mom and 'lied about everything.' Daniel Rider said he was sitting in his living room watching the Cowboys against the Chiefs when Darrell Brooks started banging on his door, pleading for help on Sunday night. Doorbell footage shows a frantic Brooks, 39, hammering on the front door and claiming he was waiting for a Uber - just 20 minutes after he plowed into the parade leaving six dead, including an eight-year-old boy. Rider had no idea of the carnage that had just unfolded in downtown Waukesha and decided he should let the shivering man into his home, remembering a recent sermon his mother had told him about helping the homeless. 'So I was like, "Oh! This was my chance to help somebody. I'm going to warm him up and give him some food,"' Rider told CBS. He lent Brooks his jacket and made him a sandwich, and also gave Brooks his phone...

    Black armed militias rallied outside the Georgia courthouse Monday where three White men are on trial for the fatal shooting of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed Black man – and a New Black Panther leader allegedly issued a threat.  "Ya'll are in serious trouble because the wrath of karma is coming on America," said a man who identified himself as the supreme commander of the New Black Panther militia. We're not taking it no more." As prosecutors and defense lawyers delivered their closing statements, dozens of members of BLM 757, Lion of Judah Armed Forces and the New Black Panther Party marched outside the Glynn County Courthouse.  The Southern Poverty Law Center has called the New Black Panther Party a "virulently racist and antisemitic organization whose leaders have encouraged violence against Whites, Jews and law enforcement." Travis McMichael, 35, his father Greg McMichael, 65, and William "Roddie" Bryan are on trial for murder, aggravated assault and false imprisonment for the slaying of Arbery in Satilla Shores outside Brunswick, Georgia.

    Tucker Carlson has claimed that jurors in the Kyle Rittenouse trial should have reached a verdict by now but are fearful of the 'pro-Biden mob' outside the courthouse threatening to 'burn, loot and destroy' if they acquit.  Rittenhouse, 18, shot dead two men and wounded another when he was attacked during BLM riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August last year.  Carlson said its an open-and-shut self-defense case and that 'no honest person could reach a different conclusion.'  Jurors were sent home last night after spending almost eight hours deliberating on various charges including first-degree intentional homicide.  The National Guard are on standby as hundreds of BLM protesters have been demonstrating outside the courthouse and threatening to shut down the city if Rittenhouse walks free.   'The average jury,' Carlson told viewers, 'reaches a verdict in just a few hours, so these jurors are taking much longer than most, but it's probably not because the evidence they have heard is confusing them.'  Watch the latest video at foxnews.com Fox News Privacy Policy Tucker Carlson has claimed that jurors in the Kyle Rittenouse...
    Black Lives Matter protesters demonstrating on the steps of Kenosha's courthouse threatened on Tuesday to 'shut down' the city if Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted, as the National Guard were put on standby to deal with any potential unrest. An activist with a megaphone, wearing a BLM hoodie, urged on his fellow protesters, chanting: 'If Kenosha don't get it, shut it down'. He then began chanting: 'Seven shots in the back' - a reference to Jacob Blake, a black man who was shot seven times by a white officer in Kenosha on August 23, 2020. Blake's shooting sparked the Kenosha riots, during which Rittenhouse on August 25, 2020 shot and killed two white BLM demonstrators and injured a third. The jury in Rittenhouse's case began their deliberations on Tuesday after an intense two-week trial. Rittenhouse is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and other counts for killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz.  Ahead of the verdict, the governor of Wisconsin, Tony Evers, ordered 500 members of the National Guard to be put on standby, 60 miles away, in...
    The “Government Is NOT A Co-Parent” rally, organized by the Independent Women’s Network, featured some of the most vocal figures in the fight for parents’ rights in K-12 education. Parents across the country are organizing against various ideologies, such as Critical Race Theory (CRT), transgender policies and graphic sexual content in school libraries. “Democrats have deemed that reasonable and concerned parents who get in the way of their radical agenda, as domestic terrorists. They put them in the same category, for example, as the Unabomber for God’s sakes,” said Republican Tennessee Rep. Diana Harshbarger, referencing a letter from the National School Board Association (NSBA), which likened parents’ actions to hate crimes and those of domestic terrorists. Federal intervention in local education issues, such as Attorney General Merrick Garland’s memorandum which directs the FBI to “use its authority” against parents amid a “disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence” against school officials, has had a chilling effect on parents’ conviction to speak out, Nicole Neily, president of Parents Defending Education told the Daily Caller News Foundation.  Parents,...

On Friday, Seacrist testified that Bryan, who videotaped the Arbery pursuit from his pickup truck, had an 'instinct' that Arbery had committed a crime.   'Because I figured he had done something wrong. I didn't know for sure,' Bryan said in a May interview with Seacrist, according to a transcript read aloud in court late Friday. 'It was just instinct man, I don't know.

    Published: 15 November 2021 07:59 GMT One study suggests that the central molecular zone of our galaxy is a major source of cosmic rays, but at the same time prevents space particles from coming from outside. Experts from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have discovered a previously unknown barrier around the center of our galaxy. The researchers found that Density of cosmic rays Most common in areas around the center of the Milky Way, In the central molecular zone (CMZ), density Drastically decreases, Reports New Scientist. “If there is no barrier, the ocean of cosmic rays must be in the central molecular zone,” Xiaohuan Huang, the study’s lead researcher, was quoted as saying by the media. “However, the data show that the opposite is true That something should be bannedHe added.

    DENVER (CBS4) – A long time nonprofit isn’t letting supply chain issues get in the way of the spirit of giving this year. Denver Feed-A-Family, run by the Epworth Foundation, has been a tradition for nearly 60 years.

    Just about any sort of win in the Pac-12 is cause for fans to rush the field in celebration these days. In Boulder last weekend, the backers of the struggling Colorado Buffaloes stormed the turf after beating a five-win Oregon State team on homecoming. In Tucson, the Arizona Wildcats faithful cut loose after ending a 20-game skid. Outside of No. 5 Oregon (8-1, 5-1 Pac-12), this has been a rocky season for a league that began with five teams in the top 25 and high hopes. Now, the Ducks are flying solo in the AP poll.

    Scientists are still unsure exactly how planets form, but interstellar objects may have played a role in constructing, a new study suggests. Researchers at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland believe that interstellar objects like 'Oumuamua or Comet 2I/Borisov may be considerably more prevalent in the universe. Over a period of 10 million years, there could be as many as 600 billion objects, roughly three feet in size, that could be captured. Larger objects, those that are 30 feet, 300 feet and roughly 3,300 feet (10 meters, 100 meters and 1 kilometer, respectively) could also be captured, but those numbers drop to 200 million, 60,000 and 20, respectively.

    A Russian FSB undercover agent who 'fell to his death' in Berlin may have been executed because his spymasters suspected he was cooperating with the West, it has been claimed.   Diplomat Kirill Zhalo, 35, was found lifeless on the pavement outside the Russian embassy in central Berlin at 7.20am on October 19 by German guards assigned to protect it.  Zhalo appeared to have fallen to his death from the upper floor of the building, German newspaper Der Spiegel said, as it broke news of the death on Friday. But the diplomat's father Lt-General Alexei Zhalo is reportedly a senior FSB counter-intelligence service officer who has been linked to secret operations against opposition figures and journalists in Russia. Now exiled Russian journalist Roman Dobrokhotov, exiled editor of The Insider, which made key revelations about the envoy's death, has claimed he was likely murdered. Diplomat Kirill Zhalo, 3 (L), was found lifeless outside the Russian embassy in central Berlin at 7.20am on October 19 by German guards assigned to protect it. Zhalo was the son of Lt-General Alexei Zhalo (R), a senior FSB...

    This holiday season's Rockefeller Christmas Tree will be donated from outside the tri-state area for the first time ever, with high expectations after last year's underwhelming tree from upstate New York that was mocked for its feeble, 'scraggly' skinny limbs.  This year's tree - a Norway Spruce that stands 79 feet tall - will come from the nearby state of Maryland. The tree will specifically be donated by a family in Elkton and is set to arrive at Rockefeller Center on November 13 after being cut down November 11, according to NBC News.  The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree typically comes from Pennsylvania, New Jersey or the Empire State itself.  Upon the spruce's arrival, the tree will be adorned in 50,000 lights - more than five miles - and adorned with a Swarovski crystal star topper.  This year's tree-lighting will take place the evening of December 1 in a live broadcast on NBC.

    An out-of-control driver jumped the curb and barreled into outdoor diners at a popular Florida restaurant, pinning one woman under her SUV who had to have her legs amputated.   Rosemary Villaran watched in horror as the driver ran over her friend, a tourist visiting from Peru, while the two dined with the victim's family at The Bang Shack in Hollywood.  'Everyone was yelling and when I turned my head, she was under the car and I was trying to stand up to help her,' Villaran said. 'And this lady in the SUV was speeding through the alley.'  The unidentified tourist was rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital, where she is in a medically induced coma following the loss of her legs. Two other diners were also injured. Police have not disclosed if the unidentified driver was under the influence at the time of the crash or if she will face any charges.  NBCUniversal Privacy Policy The driver of a black SUV struck diners sitting outside a Hollywood restaurant, injuring three seriously.

    LINDSAY, Calif. -- "Many of the learners that we have here in Lindsay come from poverty. They dream of having things. They want to buy a house, they want to buy a car, they want to be able to do things in life," says Lana Russo-Jimenez.Russo-Jimenez teaches math at John J Cairns High School, an alternative education school in Lindsay, California.And it's her job, and the job of the other teachers known as 'learning facilitators' at the school, to help those students realize their dreams.Often, the first step is working on their self-confidence and trust."I think so many of our kids are kind of beaten down because they come here and think, 'Oh my gosh, I'm a horrible student because I've been sent over here to alternative ed'. But what they find is that they just think a little bit differently and are a little out of the box, and we find that right place for them," says Russo-Jimenez. When 17-year-old Angela Aguilera was first sent to John J Cairns, she thought she was being punished."They said it's for bad...
    A PORN star has claimed that she has been detained for two weeks after baring her buttocks in view of the Kremlin. The twenty-year-old adult film actress, known as Rita Fox, said she had been punished for “petty hooliganism” after receiving backlash online for images posted in front of the famous Moscow monument last Saturday. 4Rita received backlash after sharing the controversial image last SaturdayCredit: East2West 4The adult-film star says she has been detained for two weeksCredit: East2West She told her Telegram followers:  “I am now imprisoned for 14 days.  “I have been punished for the petty hooliganism, according to my sentence.” Although the Interior Ministry have yet to confirm the arrest, it marks the latest incident to have taken place within the last week as Russia tightens its laws over stunts which may cause offence in or near churches or other important buildings.  Ren TV reports that Mrs Fox had been “inspired” by the actions of Instagram model Anastasia Chistova who, alongside her boyfriend, sparked fury last month by staging a racy photo in front of a cathedral in the...
    by George Justice, Arizona State University The University of Florida barred three of its professors from serving as paid experts in a Florida voting rights case - sparking outrage within academia and in the news media. The university said allowing its professors to testify against the state was at odds with its interests. Critics say the move puts politics ahead of academic freedom. Here, George Justice, an English professor and former college dean, offers insight into the dynamics at play in the controversy.Why do professors need permission to be paid experts?Many universities, including the University of Florida, have policies that ask faculty to seek approval for “outside activities." This is true for both paid and unpaid activities. Those who work at research universities like the University of Florida have job responsibilities outside of teaching. Tenured and tenure-track faculty spend less than half their time on direct instruction; they often teach two courses per semester. More than half their time, therefore, is allocated to research and service to the profession. Since professors have a lot of discretion in when they work,...

    Batman was there. Spider-Man, too. You could see both of the costumed crusaders hanging out in the same vicinity of a herd of cows, a group of astronauts, a land shark and at least one Mario brother. And where was Waldo? He could also be found grooving about in the area — along with some 70,000 other music lovers — as Outside Lands finally returned to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco on Friday (Oct. 29). It was the Halloween weekend edition of the popular three-day festival, a fact that was underscored by all the colorful and elaborate outfits that could be seen throughout the grounds. Expect the number of superheroes, pirates and other costumed revelers to only grow as the weekend progresses, culminating, of course, with Day Three on Halloween itself. We may never see another Halloween Outside Lands, given that the festival usually takes place in August and was only moved to October due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. (The festival wasn’t held in 2020 for the same reason.) Yet, everyone seemed to agree that the event...
    Emily VanCamp Shares Photo of Husband Josh Bowman with Their Daughter Iris: We Are So Lucky Asian markets slip despite signs of optimism on global economy BING BONG! Those two words signify one thing. The New York Knicks have won. The hilarious catch cry has taken over NBA Twitter, but how did it come about?

    Scientists have discovered the frozen remains of three Peltoperleidus specimens in Chinese soil, the oldest fossils of the bony fish ever discovered.   The fossils were uncovered in Luoping, eastern Yunnan, China this month  and are the first records of the 244 million year-old fish found outside of Europe – the creature was only known to live in what is now southern Switzerland and northern Italy.   Each of the specimens have tiny, albeit, sharp teeth, distinctive scales and a blunt snout. The discoveries also mean Peltoperleidus also lived 2 million years than previously believed - all previous fossils date back to 242 million years ago. Yu Min, a paleontologist with the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, told the Global Times: ‘It is also a sign provided to us to further explore the paleogeographic allocation and distribution of the genus since we see it has been discovered in China when previously we only knew it existed in Europe.'  Frozen in sediment are the remains three extinct genus of a bony fish that swam the Earth 244...
