  • South Korea hits back at Trump for demanding $1bn for Thaad missile deployment

    South Korea has slammed US President Donald Trump's suggestion that Seoul should pay for the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (Thaad) missile system that is now being deployed in the country. Trump had earlier questioned why the US was paying for the system that he valued at $1bn (£775m). "I informed South Korea it would be appropriate if they paid.

  • Risky draft move: Seahawks’ trades out of 1st round put brain trust in the heat

    “With the 26th pick, oops, the 31st pick — well, we’ll get back to you on that — in the 2017 NFL draft, the Seattle Seahawks select … Bulk Inventory, from the University of Hoarded Assets.” Mel Kiper Jr. says the Bulkster is not very flashy, but a real overachiever with a motor that won’t quit, a real steal. In fact, sometimes you’d swear this guy has been cloned. On a night when 27 out of 32 teams, and their fans, got to revel in their feverishly anticipated and hotly debated first-round draft picks, and then show off their shiny new toys, the Seahawks opted to trade down, and down again, to rack up three extra picks. It’s not sexy, and for those who have invested hours, if not weeks, in trying

  • Man kicked off Delta Air Lines flight for needing to use the bathroom

    Kimi Hamilton was travelling from Atlanta to Milwaukee on a Delta Air Lines plane when he urgently needed to use the toilet as take-off proceedings were underway. In fellow passenger Krista Rosolino's view, Hamilton's removal from the April 18 flight was an outrage and so was everyone else's forced exit from the plane when it returned to the gate in Atlanta. The Delta Air Lines quick-take on this incident is that federal law requires passengers to comply with crew instructions or run the risk of being seen as a security threat.

  • Family sues after school janitor charged with raping boy

    KINGSTON, Tenn. -- The family of a 16-year-old Tennessee high school student has filed a lawsuit against Roane County Schools and the contractor who employed a female janitor accused of raping the boy during school hours.  Citing the lawsuit filed Monday, the Knoxville News-Sentinel reports that the Midway High School student's family is seeking $4.5 million in damages from the school district and Compass One Services of Tennessee for negligence in allowing the rape to occur. Twenty-nine-year-old Jessica E. Galyon was arrested in February on multiple charges related to the assault. Authorities said at the time that high school officials received reports in October 2016 of Galyon exchanging sexual

  • Elderly siblings at odds over lack of will and trust

    Dear Amy: My single sister will be 85 this year. I'm 78. We have always had a close relationship. She has no last will or trust, and will leave a reasonably large estate to me, assuming that I outlive her. Her health is not good. I have adult children I would prefer that she leave her estate to. I have not had success in convincing her to get her affairs in order. She doesn't like to take even a suggestion of it from me and hasn't thus far acted on my kids' requests to do so. Without a will, our state's probate is time-consuming and expensive. I fear I will be left to handle it, and don't feel capable at this point. I can't understand her reluctance in this and wonder if she is acting out of

  • The One U.S. Submarine That Could Completely Destroy North Korea

    In the event of a nuclear exchange, a boomer would likely receive its firing orders via Very Low Frequency radio transmission. While a submarine’s missiles are not pretargeted, like those in in fixed silos, they can be assigned coordinates quite rapidly. The first eight Ohio-class boats were originally built to launch the Trident I C4 ballistic missile—an advanced version of the earlier Poseidon SLBM. However, by now all of the boomers are armed with the superior Trident II D5 ballistic missile, which has 50 percent greater range and is capable of very accurate strikes, which could enable them to precisely target military installations as a first-strike weapon. Ohio-class submarines also come

  • Mom lets daughter's school know her 10-year-old is 'done' with homework

    Making tough calls for your children is a vital aspect of parenting. One brave mother stepped up to the parenting plate for her child, sharing an email she sent to her daughter's school explaining that her 10 year old is "done with homework" because of the undue stress it causes. SEE ALSO: Instead of telling women who might get pregnant they can't drink, study suggests trusting them Bunmi Laditan, a mom blogger in Quebec, explained on Facebook that she told her daughter's school that her child would be "drastically reducing" the homework she'd be completing, but that she "was trying to be polite because [her daughter is] finished." “I just sent an email to her school letting her know she’s all done,” the mother wrote. "Over the past four years I've noticed her getting more and more stressed when it comes to school," the troubled mother wrote, "And by stressed I mean chest pains, waking up early, and dreading school in general." Laditan explained that her daughter often does homework until 6:30 p.m., with little to no time to relax after dinner. “Is family time not important?” she wrote, “Is time spent just being a child relaxing at home not important? Or should she become some kind of junior workaholic at 10 years old?" “Children need downtime after school the same way adults need downtime after work. They need to play with their siblings," she continued. Laditan later commented on her own post to further explain her point of view. Image: bunmi laditan/facebookThe mother clarified that she wasn’t blaming her daughter’s "incredible" teachers, and that she simply feels the system isn’t working for her child. “I can’t watch her unravel anymore and be filled with so much stress at age 10,” she explained. Parents, teachers, and even therapists sounded off in the post's comment section in support of Laditan, relating similar experiences with children in their own lives.

    By Steve Holland and David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said a "major, major conflict" with North Korea was possible over its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, while China said the situation on the Korean peninsula could escalate or slip out of control. Trump, speaking to Reuters on Thursday, said he wanted to resolve the crisis peacefully, possibly through the use of new economic sanctions, although a military option was not off the table. "There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea," Trump said in an interview at the Oval Office.

  • 49ers commit highway robbery, get 3 picks from the Bears so Chicago could move up one spot to draft Mitchell Trubisky

    The San Francisco 49ers made a savvy trade with the Chicago Bears early in the NFL Draft to acquire three extra picks to move back one spot. According to reports, the Bears gave the 49ers their No. 3 overall pick, 2017 third- and fourth-round picks, and a 2018 third-round pick to move up to No. 2. As a result, the Bears pulled a stunner, taking UNC quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, considered to be the target of the Cleveland Browns with the No. 12 pick, at No. 2.
