    • U.S. warship challenges China's claims in South China Sea

      By Idrees Ali and Matt Spetalnick WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. navy destroyer sailed near islands claimed by China in the South China Sea on Friday, drawing a warning from Chinese warships to leave the area. The U.S. action was the latest attempt to counter what Washington sees as Beijing's efforts to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters, U.S. officials said. The Chinese Defense Ministry called the move "illegal" and "provocative," saying that two Chinese warships had warned the U.S. destroyer to leave.

    • Man died 'horror-movie' death from flesh-eating bacteria

      OCEAN CITY, Md. — On Sept. 11, Michael Funk was cleaning crab pots at his bayside condominium; four days later he was dead, the victim of flesh-eating bacteria. For Marcia Funk, his wife of 46 years, his death is compounded by what she called a lack of information here about the bacteria, Vibrio vulnificus. "I really feel they kept it quiet because it's a tourist resort," Marcia Funk said. "It's like something out of a horror movie." The bacteria, along with about a dozen others that are related, occurs naturally in areas of warm, brackish waters with low salinity. Most of the 80,000 people who become ill across the USA each year consume raw or under-cooked seafood, according to the Centers for

    • ‘I feel like I was the victim’: Former high school teacher blames student for seducing her

      She was a 24-year-old substitute teacher. He was a 17-year-old high school student. And over the course of an illicit, months-long relationship during the 2015-2016 school year in Cedar Rapids, she admits, the pair had sex “hundreds of times.” Mary Beth Haglin was charged in July with sexual exploitation by a teacher. But now, Haglin claims that not only is she innocent of committing any crime, she’s actually the victim in the relationship. Haglin appeared on the “Dr. Phil” show this week and accused the student of hatching an elaborate plan of romantic seduction, then threatening to “burn her life down” if she ended the relationship. In recent months, Haglin claims, she’s been fired from her

    • One Big Difference Between DC And Marvel Movies, According To Joss Whedon

      The Marvel Cinematic Universe appears to be carrying on with little to no problems at this point. While DC's Extended Universe is still fairly new, Joss Whedon thinks he's seen enough of it to really understand the different ways the two companies go to market. From his perspective, neither company is necessarily better than the other, but rather, they have different goals with their movies. I did not see Suicide Squad. I saw Batman vs. Superman. Everybody's got their own method. I think Marvel has been more successful systematically. DC has been more cinematic---their stuff looks amazing---but I feel like Kevin [Feige, President of Marvel Studios] is a really good storyteller. He really cares

    • Watch Joe Biden do a spectacular burnout in the Presidential Corvette

      The Secret Service doesn't let people under its protection drive very often. When they do, it's normally a golf cart they're behind the wheel of. So after years of driving imprisonment, it's no surprise that Joe Biden pulled a spectacular burnout the second he got behind the wheel of his Corvette. DON'T MISS:  New tests confirm there’s one iPhone 7 model that’s much slower than the rest Jay Leno tweeted out a preview of Jay Leno's Garage featuring Biden. Leno shows up at the Secret Service training ground, where Biden was waiting with his very own 1967 Corvette. The car was a wedding gift from his father 49 years ago, and Biden's two sons recently had the engine rebuilt as a Christmas present. Our nation's leaders are not allowed to drive very often, so this is only the third time Biden's driven his pride and joy since being elected. You can tell he's missed spinning the tires just a little bit. It also seems that there's more to the episode than just Biden hooning around. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell also turns up towards the end with a more modern Corvette, so we're hoping for an elected officials muscle-car showdown in the near future. With just a few more months left in office, Biden is primed to be back driving soon, although even as a former Vie President, the Secret Service probably won't let him do this kinda thing on public roads.

    • Dallas Cowboys Rookies Spend Nearly $55,000 On Dinner At Nick & Sam’s

A photo of a receipt detailing $50,341.65 in pricey steaks, shrimp cocktail, and caviar from Nick & Sam’s was reportedly posted to defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford’s Snapchat account on October 19, and was later posted to Twitter by a Cowboys fan site.
