  • Former CIA officer is arrested, accused of stashing top secret info

    A former CIA officer believed to have helped China dismantle a US spy network in the country and identify informants who were later killed or imprisoned was arrested Monday at John F. Kennedy International Airport, according to multiple reports. Jerry Chun Shing Lee, a 13-year veteran of the spy agency, was charged with unlawful retention of national defense information and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted, the Justice Department said Tuesday.

  • Neighbor says Turpin children seemed ‘terrified’ when she tried to talk to them

    When Kimberly Milligan moved into her California home in 2015, she was told her grandson might soon have a playmate, since a family of 12 lived across the street. But Milligan never saw children scampering in the backyard, never heard playful screams. A few times, Milligan saw a woman across the street with an infant cradled in her arms. She occasionally noticed three other children, who looked like they were 14 years old or younger. Milligan and her neighbors in […]

  • White House doctor: ‘No concerns’ about Trump’s cognitive ability

    President Donald Trump asked the White House doctor to perform a cognitive exam during his physical last week, despite the doctor’s determination that such testing wasn’t necessary. “I have no concerns about his cognitive ability,” Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters on Tuesday. He said the testing was conducted at the President’s wishes, and the results were normal. Ahead of the exam, the White House said that tests for mental acuity would not be included. The question arose after a week […]

  • Garbage collectors open library with abandoned books

    A library in Ankara gives new meaning to the notion that books are timeless. Garbage collectors in the Turkish capital have opened a public library comprised entirely of books once destined for the landfills. The library, located in the Çankaya district of Ankara, was founded after sanitation workers started collecting discarded books. For months, the garbage men gathered forsaken books. As word of the collection spread, residents also began donating books directly. Initially, the books were only for employees and […]

  • Danish police charge 1,000 young people with ‘distribution of child porn’

    More than 1,000 young people in Denmark have been charged with “distribution of child pornography” after sexual content featuring 15-year-olds was circulated online, Danish National Police said in a statement Monday. The police launched an investigation following a tip-off from Facebook about two videos and a “sexually explicit” image that were being circulated by mostly teenage social media users across Denmark. “It’s a very big and complex matter that has taken a long time to investigate. Not least because of […]

  • New law means drinking and droning don’t mix in New Jersey

    If you’ve had a few too many, don’t even think about grabbing those car keys. And, if you live in New Jersey, put down those drone controls, too. A bill banning people from operating unmanned aircraft devices while under the influence of alcohol or drugs was signed by Gov. Chris Christie on Monday, his last day in office, the Star-Ledger reports. The bill defines “under the influence” as a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or more – the same threshold set by […]

  • Food delivery driver sends unsolicited texts to female customer

    Authorities in the UK are investigating after a food delivery service offered a £10 (roughly $14) credit to a woman who received unsolicited personal messages from a driver. The Information Commissioner’s office, which regulates breaches of UK data protection law, said it was examining the case after Michelle Midwinter, 33, from Gloucestershire in England, posted screengrabs of the messages she received from the Just Eat driver on WhatsApp. The driver said he was “a fan,” sent her a “kiss” emoji […]

  • Victims confront Larry Nassar in court: ‘Little girls don’t stay little forever’

    Kyle Stephens said she had her first sexual experience when she was 6 years old. Larry Nassar, a family friend, exposed himself to her in a dark boiler room. From then until she was 12 years old, he would pleasure himself in front of her, rub his penis on her bare feet and put his finger in her vagina. At 12, she told her parents about the abuse, but they didn’t believe her. The abuse — and their denial — […]

  • California family projected happy, wholesome image on social media

    The photographs are, quite simply, picture perfect. Happy parents posing with and surrounded by their seemingly equally happy children. Matching outfits. Matching haircuts. Lots of smiles. But the pictures posted on social media obviously don’t tell the full story of what authorities say was going on in the Turpin family household. Children chained to beds. Filthy conditions. Adults so malnourished they looked like kids. The disconnect between the cheerful photos and the ghastly reality is a gap investigators will try […]

  • Why you’ll want to double check your paycheck in February

    NEW YORK – You’ve probably heard by now that the new tax reform bill will hit your paycheck as soon as February. But the change may not accurately reflect your ultimate tax bill. About 90% of people will see more take-home pay, according to the U.S. Treasury. That may sound like great news, but here’s the problem: There’s a chance you’ll end up with too much money in your paycheck — meaning you’ll either be stuck paying it back at tax […]
