    Stacey Abrams claimed that fetal heartbeats are a 'manufactured sound' used to allow men to 'take control of a woman's body' and restrict abortion rights.  A new video circulating on social media shows the Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate sharing her latest views on abortion.  'There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,' she said.

    Scandal-hit actor Ezra Miller, 29, has been accused of taking control of a teenage activist, plying her with alcohol, LSD and marijuana, forcing her to drop out of school and taking away her personal items. Tokata Iron Eyes, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, met the Flash star when she was just 12 years old when the then 23-year-old Miller visited their reservation in North Dakota.

    Eighteen miles south of the Central Valley home that was her prison, down Highway 99 past almond orchards and trucks overloaded with hay bales, sits the Madera County Superior Court. The four-story steel-structure with its light granite exterior boasts 10 courtrooms, large flat-screen monitors and a glass-skinned atrium. The courthouse opened in 2015 in this county of 160,000, part of a decades-long effort to shift funding and oversight of local courts to the state and ensure equal access to justice for all Californians. “The Madera Courthouse was designed to demonstrate the transparency and dignity of democracy, providing a place to facilitate the workings of the American ideals of justice,” the architect’s website says.

    A cagey Bronx subway rider looking to avoid being pushed onto the tracks as the city's transit crime spirals out control shared her radical strategy for keeping her feet safely on the platform: tethering herself firmly to a pole with a bike lock until her train arrives.   'People want to push people into trains, it's bad out here - that ain't gonna happen to me,' Wanda Vela told TikTok viewers on Monday in the now viral video as she wrapped a bike lock around a pole on the platform and her midsection, securing it with a key. 'I got my own chain and this what I do - I wait for the train like this and if the train don't come, I stay right here. Ain't nobody pushing me.' She said she only unlocks the chain once her train pulls into the platform: 'That's it. Then I'm going on the train - boom,' she said in the video as she unlocks the chain.  Vela's advice may seem tongue-in-cheek but the video hit close to home for many straphangers fearing for...

                      by Amy Swearer and Emma Nietzsche  March is Women’s History Month, yet Congress appears ready to celebrate in the worst way possible by creating more barriers for women who seek to exercise their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. While COVID-19-related bills have taken up much of the national spotlight, several gun control bills are primed for passage this week in the House. This is hardly surprising, given that just last month, President Joe Biden called on Congress to enact a plethora of new federal gun legislation. Unfortunately, however, none of these proposals is meaningfully directed at the root causes of gun violence. Many gun control advocates have fooled themselves—and far too many others—into believing that we create safer communities by placing increasingly burdensome restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. The reality, however, is that firearms are used far more often for lawful purposes than they are used to commit acts of criminal violence. Almost every major study on the issue found that Americans use their firearms in self-defense...

    Time and again we have seen bills pushed to control the ability of women of color to make our own reproductive health decisions, from when to become pregnant and raise children to creating more obstacles to abortion access. We heard the horrific news that immigrant women were being forced to have hysterectomies — and over the past year, bans on abortion have swept the nation. Let’s be clear: This is all part of a political agenda to deny autonomy to women of color. We are told when we can and can’t have kids, and what kind of health care we are allowed to get. This is all while people ignore the very real plight that Black women are facing when we seek to try to have healthy pregnancies. Black women are dying in childbirth at the same time I hear lawmakers talk about how much they value life. Where is the care for the lives of Black women when it comes to Breonna Taylor, who was gunned down by police, or Deidre Johnson, a 35-year-old woman in Colorado...

    New surveillance footage has been released in the deadly crash at a Georgia hospital, when an elderly woman lost control of her vehicle and smashed through an entrance of the ER two months ago.

    Washington (CNN)Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Tuesday that she doesn't "know why anybody wants to defend the Confederacy" and monuments erected in honor of it, but warned against the removal of other controversial statues, arguing that doing so would erase history. "I actually don't know why anybody wants to defend the Confederacy and Confederate monuments," Rice said while speaking during the Aspen Security Forum. Rice, who under President George W. Bush became the first Black woman to head the State Department and the first African American woman to serve as national security adviser, joins a small but growing number of Republicans who have publicly called for such symbols to be removed from public spaces, though President Donald Trump has defended them. A number of state and local governments have moved to remove Confederate monuments and statues in recent weeks in the wake of widespread protests over racial injustice. The US House also approved legislation to expel Confederate statues from the Capitol last month, but the Republican-controlled Senate has so far pushed back on congressional efforts to address the...
    A female pedestrian was struck on a Wyckoff sidewalk by an out-of-control vehicle driven by a 17-year-old boy, authorities said. The boy apparently was turning when he lost control while turning from Newton Road onto Wyckoff Avenue shortly after 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said. The boy tried to avoid hitting another vehicle when his car ended up on the sidewalk, where it struck the 50-year-old victim and a utility pole, the prosecutor said. The woman was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center, where Musella said she was in stable condition. The boy received summonses for careless driving and ignoring a stop sign following an investigation by Wyckoff police and the prosecutor’s Fatal Accident Investigations Unit. The Bergen County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification collected evidence.
    Kevin Loria/Business Insider Caffeine, a stimulant in coffee and tea, can be dangerous or fatal in large amounts. Caffeine supplements can be especially risky since pills or powders are highly concentrated.  In a recent case study, a 26-year-old woman went to intensive care for a week after overdosing on 2 teaspoons of powdered caffeine, equal to 56 cups of coffee.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. If you're like 90% of adults in the western world, you rely on coffee, tea, or similar beverages to kick off your morning or power through an afternoon of work. But caffeine, the active ingredient that gives those drinks their energizing powers, can be deadly in large amounts. And for highly concentrated supplements in pill or powdered form, even a small portion contains as much caffeine as gallons of brewed coffee.  Such was the case with one 26-year-old woman, who experienced difficulty breathing, heart palpitations, sweating, and anxiety after ingesting two heaping teaspoons of caffeine powder, 20 grams total, that was equivalent to drinking 56 cups of coffee, according to a...
    Media Angle is a column offering perspectives on the media landscape from the newsmakers themselves. Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin's life turned upside down last month when a 17-second video, in which she appeared to interrupt a man boarding up a California store to pose with his power drill, went viral – but she says she feels like a victim of cancel culture who “stepped unwittingly into an online cesspool of sanctimony, false narratives, and clickbait” without getting to tell her side of the story. The video has been played over 29 million times and Moriarty-McLaughlin was condemned by celebrities including the singer Pink, who called her a “horrible person.” Filmmaker Ava DuVernay captioned the video, “You know what? I’m... I think I’m gonna put Twitter away for a few minutes before I throw this phone across the room.” The 21-year-old recent college graduate was supposed to work for the Washington Examiner as a summer intern, but after the video went viral the arrangement was canceled by a student free press association that helps young journalists seek careers in the industry.
