    The mother of the 19-year-old man accused of slashing two NYPD cops with a machete near Times Square on New Year's Eve had reported his sudden and inexplicable terrorist leanings to their local police department in southern Maine three weeks before the attack, DailyMail.com has learned.  Speaking in an exclusive interview on Tuesday, Wells Police Captain Gerald Congdon revealed Audra Bickford had been concerned about her son Trevor Bickford and told cops he had been 'acting strange' and talking about 'the Taliban.'  The police department responded to the mom's fears by contacting the FBI, which placed Bickford on a watch list, Congdon said, however, there is no indication that local police did anything to further investigate or monitor the young man.

    Malerapaso | Istock | Getty Images With the national average interest rate on credit cards at historic highs, many Americans are being dinged with higher monthly charges than ever on on their balances. As a result, they may be wondering if it's a good idea to tap their retirement savings to pay off the debt.

    If your parents always told you to close the toilet lid before you flush, gruesome new video shows that they really were right.  The footage, captured by scientists from University of Colorado Boulder, shows a plume of tiny liquid droplets violently ejected from the toilet after flushing.  These liquid droplets are usually invisible to the naked eye, so the researchers used bright green lasers in the lab to make them visible.  While this was a safe lab simulation using water, any toilet in use can potentially blast out droplets containing dangerous pathogens such as E. coli, norovirus and possibly even coronavirus.

    Getty Images That offer for a store credit card may sound tempting as you're shopping this holiday season. But you may want to think twice before you accept. As the Federal Reserve raises interest rates, credit card annual percentage rates — a measure for the yearly cost of borrowing money — are climbing higher. That is especially true for retail credit cards, which tend to charge the most. The most expensive retail credit cards may come with a 30.74% annual percentage rate, according to Ted Rossman, senior industry analyst at CreditCards.com, who calls the rate "crazy high."

    Days after Elon Musk took over Twitter and just before the midterms in America, the social media site has limited some content moderation tools. It may hamper staff's ability to stop misinformation, as they will not be able to manually change or punish accounts. The change is the latest implemented by Musk and comes after he made significant staff cuts and fired the Twitter board, making himself the sole member. He is also reportedly considering other major new ideas, including charging $20 a month for verification.  Those working in Twitter's Trust and Safety organization are currently unable to alter or punish accounts breaking the platform's rules on misleading information, offensive posts and hate speech. According to insiders on the matter, they can only penalize people making posts that violate Twitter rules to the extent of real-world harm, according to Bloomberg. They added that the team were manually enforcing those posts.  The change is the latest implemented by Musk, pictured, and comes after he made significant staff cuts and fired the Twitter board, making himself the sole member At Twitter, staff...

    There’s no way to tell how history will look at the Chicago White Sox’s rehiring of Tony La Russa in 2020, but in the moment it was always a bad idea. Sure, La Russa was a “Hall of Fame baseball person” already. But he was given a young, hungry team that was on the brink of success and wanted more. They needed a leader who could connect with them, a leader who could guide their talent and inexperience to the promised land. But instead of hiring a manager who was ready to match their energy, Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf took the opportunity to right an old wrong and hire his friend. There’s a portion of the blame that can be put on La Russa for his management style, lineup decisions and questionable strategy. But there’s one constant in the White Sox’s inability to get over the hump: the front office. In Monday’s news conference, La Russa, whose tenure ended due to health concerns, held himself accountable. He did the honorable thing. That’s what was expected, that’s what his baseball reputation is....

Prince William, now known as the Prince of Wales, has issued an extraordinarily personal tribute to his “grannie.” In a moving statement that appeared to refer to the queen’s support for him when his mother Princess Diana died, William said: “She was by my side at my happiest moments. And she was by my side during the saddest days of my life. I knew this day would come, but it will be some time before the reality of life without Grannie will truly feel real.” Shortly after the statement was issued, William and Kate Middleton—now the Princess of Wales, and the first person to hold that title since the death of Princess Diana—were due to arrive at Windsor Castle to view floral tributes left there by the public in memory of the queen, who died Thursday aged 96. William, who recently moved to Windsor in part so that his family could see more of the...
    The former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani has come under fire for saying September 11, 2001, the day terrorists flew planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, was 'in some ways … the greatest day of my life.' Giuliani, 78, made the remarks just days before the 21st anniversary of the attacks while speaking on Newsmax on Friday morning.  'The feelings are … complex feelings. I guess the best way to describe it is, it was the worst day of my life and in some ways, you know, the greatest day of my life, in terms of my city, my country, my family.

    NOISY neighbours are annoyingly a curse that some of us are forced to bear. One nursing student, however, decided that she’d had enough of her neighbours being loud at all times of day and night, and instead got some petty revenge before moving out. 1The nurse says her nightmare neighbours were keeping her up all night when she had to work 16-18 hours the following dayCredit: Getty Posting to the Reddit forum r/pettyrevenge, the anonymous nurse says that this occurred a few years ago when she was working full-time and attending nursing school, so was pulling 16-18 hour working days. She says that after moving into a new flat she discovered that the walls were pretty thin which added to the annoyance, writing: “During the day, I found it annoying to hear them yelling and playing music, but it wasn’t their fault the walls were thin. “The issue was, the noise continued into the early hours of the morning. Sometimes going on until 3-4am. Doors slamming, music blaring, conversations being yelled from upstairs to downstairs, unnecessarily loud sexual activity etc.”...
    SiliCon with Adam Savage returns to downtown San Jose this weekend, and a group of students from Calero High School got a fun preview Thursday afternoon at the Tech Interactive from the former “Mythbuster” himself. If there’s anything Savage loves more than building things, it may be telling stories about the things he has built. And that’s what he did at the Tech, sharing several items from his San Francisco home maker studio — the Cave — that he either built, had gifted to him or otherwise collected.

    Some people will have “more access” to abortion in the wake of Roe v. Wade being overturned, former Supreme Court law clerk and Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino told Fox News. Reacting to the Supreme Court’s decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Severino argued certain states will react by rolling back restrictions on abortion. “If you are in California and New York, you will probably, if anything, have more access to abortion now than before this decision. The states are pushing their laws in the other direction,” Severino, who was previously a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, said Friday on The Faulkner Focus. States are already reacting to the Supreme Court’s ruling. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced shortly after the Dobbs decision was revealed that abortion is now illegal in the red state. Missouri has similarly banned abortions in the wake of the SCOTUS decision. Despite these bans and her own prediction for liberal states like New York and California, Severino argued “most states” will hash out abortion laws “somewhere in the middle.”...
    The European Parliament has approved Ukraine's bid to join the EU in a vote backed by an overwhelming majority of MEPs. Leaders of the member states will gather in Brussels later today to discuss calls to formally grant Ukraine 'candidate status' to join the bloc, as Russian forces slowly advance in the eastern Donbas region. But some member states have been lukewarm about letting Ukraine join the EU, and any accession process is likely to take years if not decades.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he had been conducting a 'telephone marathon' on his country's behalf in the run-up to the meeting, making his case to 11 European leaders on Wednesday alone.

    VIDEO1:3401:34UST's crash has some investors re-evaluating their crypto investmentsFast Money WASHINGTON — In May, the collapse of one of the most popular U.S. dollar-pegged stablecoin projects cost investors tens of billions of dollars as they pulled out in a panic that some have compared to a bank run. But before that, the stablecoin known as terraUSD (or UST, for short) and its sister token luna, had experienced a pretty spectacular run-up — and some investors made a killing before it all collapsed. Venture capital firm Pantera Capital tells CNBC it earned a 100-fold return on its $1.7 million investment in luna. Hack VC and the Winklevoss-backed CMCC Global didn't share their exact gains, but CMCC told CNBC that it closed its luna position in March, while Hack reportedly got out in December. The scheme relied largely on faith and the promise of future returns, plus a complex set of code, with very little hard cash to back up the whole arrangement. Unlike USDC (another popular dollar-pegged stablecoin), which has fiat assets in reserve as a way to back their tokens, UST was an algorithmic stablecoin created and administered by Singapore-based Terraform Labs. It depended...
    Shortly before he opened fire, the white gunman accused of killing 10 Black people at a Buffalo, New York, supermarket allowed a small group of people to see his detailed plans for the attack, which he had been chronicling for months in a private, online diary. Discord, the chat platform where 18-year-old Payton Gendron kept the diary, confirmed Wednesday that an invitation to access his private writings was sent to the group about a half-hour before Saturday’s attack at Tops Friendly Market, which he live-streamed on another online service. Some of them accepted. Gendron’s diary and its racist, anti-Semitic entries dated to last November included step-by-step descriptions of his assault plans, a detailed account of a reconnaissance trip he made to Buffalo in March, and maps of the store that he drew by hand. “What we know at this time is that a private, invite-only server was created by the suspect to serve as a personal diary chat log,” a Discord spokesperson said in a written statement. “Approximately 30 minutes prior to the attack, however, a small group of people...
    Getty Images Interest rates are set to rise again, making it a good time to pay off high-cost credit card debt as soon as possible. Annual percentage rates on credit cards are currently just over 16%. Because the Federal Reserve is in a rate hiking cycle, with half-point increases on the table for every remaining meeting this year, APRs are likely to go up. They could even overtake the current record high of 17.87% set in April 2019.

    (CBS4) – Debris removal is ongoing in Boulder County to clean up properties burned in the Marshall Fire and the hired company is tasked with scraping down lots by July. Yet, some residents say the process is actually happening too quickly and they are not being given a final chance to walk through the debris and collect any remaining items.

    LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- Before the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority increased its base pay from $33,119 to $50,000 a year in 2021, some of its staff were experiencing homelessness while working for the agency tasked with responding to the region's homelessness crisis, LAHSA's chief programs officer told a City Council committee Wednesday."What we learned was that we had some staff who were homeless themselves, and the last thing we want as an employer is to be contributing to our crisis that's out there on the sidewalk," LAHSA's Molly Rysman told the Budget and Finance Committee as part of the 2022-23 budgeting process.LAHSA's Executive Director Heidi Marston announced her resignation on Monday, citing disagreements over compensation for staff. Marston said she raised the salary for the 196 lowest-paid employees to $50,000 a year in March 2021."The employees of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority should not make so little that they qualify for homeless services themselves," she wrote in a letter to the commission that oversees LAHSA.Along with increasing the compensation floor for LAHSA's employees, Marston also stopped increasing the...

    Forensic tests carried out on civilian corpses dumped in mass graves in the Kyiv region show women were raped before being brutally killed. Dozens of autopsies have been carried out on mutilated corpses from Bucha, Irpin and Borodianka, with many showing signs of torture and multiple bullet holes in the back.

    Bravo Fans are unhappy with one member of the RHONJ cast. Season 12 of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is drawing to a close, and fans are already looking ahead to the reunion, which was filmed in March 2022. This season, Bravo introduced a new “friend of” to the series, bringing on Traci Johnson to join the ladies on their drama-filled dinners, parties, and trips.

    by Scott McClallen   The Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) failed to screen 5,508 workers before giving them access to software that disbursed $39 billion of taxpayer money since March 2020. An audit released Friday from the Office of Auditor (OAG) General Doug Ringler marked four “material conditions” – the most severe rating – asserting the UIA failed to take multiple safeguards to prevent employees from looting taxpayer money. The UIA has fired or penalized at least 18 employees so far after a criminal investigation. The audit explains why. Of 139 departed workers, 63, or 45.3%, continued to have access to Michigan’s Integrated Data Automated System (MiDAS) to view and make unauthorized claims for an average of 32.6 days post-departure. This access cost taxpayers $3.8 million in fraud committed by a former worker who pleaded guilty to fraud in July 2020. If that scheme was successful, it would have netted more than $12 million.

For example, it takes four minutes longer to travel south on the Expressway in the morning, but drive times on Route 128 between Route 3 and the Mass Pike are six minutes faster during the morning rush. Officials are still reviewing data to see if these trends will hold.
    andresr | E+ | Getty Images A recently introduced bill in Congress has its sights set on preventing a cost that some new Medicare beneficiaries face: late-enrollment penalties. The bipartisan measure, introduced in the Senate, would require the federal government to provide individuals with information about Medicare enrollment rules before they reach the Medicare-eligible age of 65. While many beneficiaries are automatically enrolled at that point because they are on Social Security, that's not the case for everyone.  "More people are working later in life, delaying Social Security and not getting auto-enrolled," said Lindsey Copeland, federal policy director for the Medicare Rights Center, an advocacy group. "They might need to actively enroll and [understand] what can happen if they don't."More from Life Changes:Here's a look at other stories offering a financial angle on important lifetime milestones.

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) will announce Monday he will end mask mandates for school children and teachers the second week in March, the New York Times reported. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy encourages residents to continue wearing face masks while in public (Tariq Zehawi/The Record via AP, Pool). With 2022 midterms elections on the horizon, Democrat-controlled states have perhaps realized their coronavirus policies are untenable. Pennsylvania announced it will allow children to remove masks, while New York and Connecticut are weighing whether to extend or allow mask mandates to expire. Delaware will remove school mask mandates March 31. “The overwhelming sentiment on both sides of the aisle,” Murphy said Wednesday, “is we want to get to a place where we can live with this thing in as normal a fashion as possible” before the midterm election. With Gov. Ron DeSantis and Gov. Greg Abbott (R) leading the way, many red states banned mask mandates in the summer, which Democrats strongly fought in the courts. Currently, eight states have banned mask mandates, and 16 are still mandating masks, according to the...

    A hotly-anticipated Broadway musical about Michael Jackson makes only a throwaway mention of the singer's alleged pedophile past - with one of its writers even questioning whether two of the singers' accusers were telling the truth.   MJ: The Musical, which began previews at the Neil Simon Theater on December 6, is set in 1992 - the year before allegations against Jackson emerged in public, but well after he'd met at least one of his accusers.  The show which runs for two hours and 30 minutes, barely makes mention of Jackson's sordid past. Reviews of the show say the allegations were addressed in one simple throwaway line delivered by one of Jackson's managers: 'Who the hell is this family he wants to bring on tour?'  One tweeter was skeptical about a musical lionizing the alleged child abuser, writing: 'way to celebrate a pedophile,' while another Twitter commenter suggested that Jackson, who died in 2009, is simply too big a figure in pop culture to cancel.  Meanwhile, she show's writer Lynn Nottage has flip-flopped on whether she believes the claims Jackson...

    China's cybersecurity review rules will come into effect on Feb. 15 and will require some companies to seek approval from regulators before listing overseas.Bill Hinton Photography | Moment Open | Getty Images From next month, China will require some companies with large amounts of user data to get approval from regulators to list overseas. The network security review process, which was first proposed last year, will be implemented by the increasingly powerful Cyberspace Administration (CAC) of China on Feb. 15 as the country continues to tighten regulation on its domestic technology sector. Internet platforms holding personal information of more than 1 million users must apply for a network security review with the regulators before carrying out an initial public offering (IPO) abroad. The rules are aimed at companies that carry out data processing activities which could affect national security, the CAC said. If the regulator finds that a company's data processing activities do not endanger national security, then an overseas listing can proceed. Beijing has introduced a slew of new regulation on the tech sector over the past year as...
    A litter of fossilized dinosaur eggs have been found in Brazil that would have hatched into vicious carnivores 60 million to 80 million years ago if the eggs were not buried by loose sediment. The five eggs, which are well-preserver, were originally believed to be ancient crocodile eggs - fossilized feces belonging to crocodylomorph was previously uncovered at the site. After a deeper analysis by a team of paleontologist led by William Roberto Nava, the eggs were determined to be larger and have a thicker shell than those from a crocodylomorph, according to g1. Nava, who is responsible for most of the finds, at the Paleontological Museum in Marilia, told g1 that the dinosaur eggs measure four to five inches long and two to three inches wide, while the ancient crocodiles' egg is typically no longer than three inches. He further explained that the shell of fossilized crocodylomorph eggs are a porous or smooth texture, while those from the dinosaur have a 'ripple-shaped' texture.

    The Subway sandwich chain is facing a lawsuit in which it is accused of exploiting immigrants and victimizing franchisees, sometimes pushing them to financial ruin. The chain, which has more than 25,000 locations across the country, is also accused of perpetrating underhand tactics that include setting up rival branches of the franchise close to where new stores have been recently been opened.  The lawsuit alleges that the sandwich giant has focused on recruiting mainly Asian immigrants who believed they were about to experience the American Dream once they owned a potentially lucrative and popular franchise of their own.    On average, Subway charges $15,000 in fees in order to open a new store. Far less than McDonald's or Burger King, which charge about $45,000 in startup franchise fees.  Subway is accused of employing dirty tricks against its own franchise operators Due to the smaller amount of fees required, it can often attract someone who may be less well educated, particularly in England and basic math.  The suit which was filed in Nevada State Court, and has been seen by the New...
