    (CNN) — The vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella doesn’t bring an increased risk of autism, according to a new study of more than 95,000 children. The study, published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, is the latest piece of research to debunk the myth associating the MMR vaccine with autism. Using a claims database from a large commercial health plan, the researchers paid particular attention to children who had older siblings with autism, or ASD, which […]

She also thought that because they never had sex, she was entitled to be the boy’s sole parent, according to court documents. The […]

She was asked for proof of identity, even a copy of her social security card. All the while, she had no access to […]

    WASHINGTON — It didn’t happen on 4/20 — marijuana’s high holy day — but expect Michele Leonhart to step down soon as administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. officials familiar with the matter say.

In recent years, she has angered the administration for appearing to resist federal […]

    Pope accepts resignation of Robert Finn, convicted U.S. bishop

    Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Bishop Robert Finn, who remained on the job for years after becoming the highest-ranking U.S. Catholic official convicted in the church’s long-running sex abuse scandal, the Vatican announced Tuesday. Finn, who led the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Missouri, was found guilty in 2012 of failure to report suspected child abuse.

    Prosecutor: ‘Tsarnaev was and is unrepentant, uncaring and untouched’

    BOSTON — It’s not just that Dzhokhar “Jahar” Tsarnaev played a role in the deaths of four people and devastating injuries to scores more. It’s how he did it — in a way that each victim felt pain and terror, giving them time to suffer and shudder, but not to say goodbye. That was federal prosecutor Nadine Pellegrini’s argument on the first day in the sentencing phase for Tsarnaev, who less than two weeks ago was convicted on all 30 […]
