  • Phil Mickelson sparks controversy by hitting still moving ball in US Open

    It’s his 48th birthday and he should know better, but Phil Mickelson ran after a still moving putt and hit the ball back towards the hole during his third round of the US Open Saturday. It’s a no-no for kids on a crazy golf course, let alone a five-time major champion and former world No. 2 at the US Open. The rules of golf state: “A player must not make a stroke at his ball while it is moving.” Mickelson […]

  • Astronomers have found the fastest-growing black hole ever seen

    Astronomers have found the fastest-growing black hole ever seen in the universe, and they’re calling this one a monster with an appetite. It’s growing so fast it can devour a mass the size of the sun every two days. Researchers at Australian National University first discovered this supermassive black hole, also known as a quasar, when data from a telescope called the SkyMapper flagged it as an object of potential interest. Then they used data from the European Space Agency’s […]

  • Lawsuit: Harvard ranks Asian-Americans lower on personality traits

    A group that claims Harvard puts quotas on Asian-American applicants contends the university scores them higher than students of other races on academics and extracurricular activities but ranks them lowest in a “personal” category covering such traits as likability and “attractive to be with.” In a federal court filing Friday in Boston, lawyers for the student group also asserted that while Harvard has a bias against Asian-Americans, it shows a disproportionate preference for black and Hispanic applicants. “What Harvard will […]

  • Student shows up to school in a KKK costume — reportedly with teacher’s approval

    A student who showed up to high school dressed as a Ku Klux Klansman did so as part of an assignment — reportedly with advance approval from a teacher. Still, the head-to-toe costume — complete with infamous conical hood and a white, fabric mask with two holes for eyes — sparked outrage when classmates saw the student outside a history class at Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy in Wilmington, California, then learned the outfit was teacher-sanctioned, CNN affiliate KABC reported. “It […]

    OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Two parents may be stuck with a $132,000 bill after their child damaged a sculpture inside the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas, according to KSHB. The child’s mother, Sarah Goodman, said the incident happened during a wedding reception last month. Surveillance video shows the child hug the sculpture, then seconds later, it fell. “We heard a bunch of commotion and I thought, ‘Who’s yelling at my son?’” Goodman explained. “This glass mosaic torso […]

  • Candidate sprays himself in the face with pepper spray for campaign ad

    DENVER — There are plenty of videos on YouTube of people spraying themselves in the face with pepper spray — but most of them aren’t congressional campaign ads. Levi Tillemann, a Democratic candidate for Colorado’s 6th congressional district, on Denver’s east side, did just that, according to KCNC-TV. Tillemann’s video has had hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube that he hopes translate into votes. “Trust me. This will stop anyone in their tracks,” Tillemann says just before he sprays a canister […]

  • Florida agency probing roller coaster derailment in Daytona Beach

    A Florida state agency said Friday it has opened a probe to find out why a roller coaster derailed at an amusement park in Daytona Beach on Thursday night. The terrifying accident sent two riders plunging 34 feet to the ground and left one of the ride’s cars dangling with two other people inside, the Daytona Beach Fire Department said. They were among 10 people on the Sand Blaster ride at the Daytona Beach Boardwalk. Six people remained hospitalized Friday. […]

  • Judge sends former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort to jail, pending trial

    Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort will await his trial for foreign lobbying crimes from jail. Two weeks after Robert Mueller’s prosecutors dropped new accusations of witness tampering on him, a federal judge Friday revoked Manafort’s current bail, which allowed him out on house arrest. Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s order marks an end to months of attempts from Manafort to lighten his house arrest restrictions after he was charged and pleaded not guilty to foreign lobbying violations. When Manafort was […]

  • Trump announces tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods

    President Donald Trump is sharply escalating a confrontation with China over trade. The United States will impose a 25% tariff on $50 billion of Chinese exports, the president said early Friday. The penalty is designed to punish China for stealing American technology and trade secrets. It will apply to roughly 1,100 exports and will target the Chinese aerospace, robotics, manufacturing and auto industries. Trade between the two countries “has been very unfair, for a very long time,” Trump said. “This […]

  • Stephen Hawking’s voice will be beamed 3,500 light years into space

    Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking spent his life teaching the world about space, so it is only fitting that part of him will end up among the stars. As Hawking’s ashes are being interred between the graves of Charles Darwin and Sir Isaac Newton at a memorial service on Friday at Westminster Abbey, an antenna in Spain will beam his voice out into space, toward a black hole. Hawking, a committed atheist who spent much of his life researching black holes, […]
