    I don't really want to go into the details of the end of my marriage to the journalist Julie Burchill.  Just let me say that after ten years together, Julie had grown bored with me and fallen in love with someone else. It happens. Our break-up wasn’t easy on our ten-year-old son Jack – but divorce is rarely easy.  We did the classic we-both-love-you and nothing-is-going-to-change speech that divorcing parents always make.  In the days that followed the end of my marriage, I told myself I had to man up for Jack’s sake. There was no time for sorrow and self-pity. My main task was helping Jack adjust to this big scary change by creating a sense of continuity. The toughest challenge I faced in those early days was trying to hide my sadness from Jack. The toughest challenge Jack faced was hiding his sadness from me. No doubt this makes them feel better, but I suspect it provides little comfort for children. In the days that followed, I told myself I had to man up for Jack’s sake. There...
    Kalani David, a rising star in the surfing and skating worlds, died in Costa Rica on Saturday after suffering a seizure while riding the waves. He was 24. The news was first reported by The Inertia. It was seemingly confirmed by David’s younger brother, Keoni, who posted to his Instagram story: “You are the best brother I could ever ask for. I will miss you Kalani.” Born and raised on Oahu’s North Shore in Hawaii, David was born with a surfboard in one hand and a skateboard in the other, and by 14 years old, he was already considered “a seasoned veteran,” as his X-Games biography put it. In 2012, he won one of the first of his many major accolades, clinching a gold medal at the ISA World Junior Surfing Championship in Panama. The 24-year-old also had Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome, a congenital heart condition where those affected are born with an extra muscle on the organ that can cause a dangerously rapid heartbeat and seizures. Seizures, while not always fatal, often involve a loss of consciousness, which can be particularly...
    Nearly 40 years after a woman was found dead in a Northern California river, authorities said they solved the cold case thanks to the clothes she was wearing when she was killed. As deputies prepared to arrest the suspect, 64-year-old Eric David Drummond, he died by suicide in Sierra County, the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday. Drummond had been spurned by Joette Smith, 33, when he asked her on a date shortly before her 1983 killing, and he was first identified as a suspect five years later, the department said. His DNA matched a recent profile taken from Smith’s clothing. “While Drummond will never face criminal charges … the Sheriff’s Office is confident that the evidence in this case would support a conviction of Drummond for the murder of Joette Smith,” Lt. Patrick Dimick said in a news release. Business Brink’s heist mystery: Questions arise about a timeline that ‘doesn’t make any sense’ A 298-mile drive in 2 hours and 4 minutes?

    DEAR ABBY: I was adopted at 6 weeks old. My parents adopted my sister two years later. They weren’t very good parents — not abusive, but with no understanding of how to treat children. Ten years later they had a biological son, who became the center of their world, and I was pretty much left alone at a young age to raise myself. Thirty years ago, I found my birth mother. At first she denied it, and then she acknowledged it. In a letter she wrote a few days later, she said she had wondered for 40 years what she’d do if the day came when she had to face up to what she did. She then told me never to contact her or her family again. A few years later, against her wishes, I contacted and met her two sons. At the time, I believed we were half-brothers. She died eight years ago. Related Articles Advice | Dear Abby: It’s my husband’s sport, but now I win more than he does. Should I quit? Advice...
    After shooting a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy who raided his parents’ house in 1979, Jesse Gonzales was in an ambulance with another deputy and apologized for the violence. “Sorry, man,” he told the deputy, claiming he thought he was being ambushed by a rival gang when he shot at the plain-clothed deputies, killing one of them, according to court records. That was Gonzales’ defense when his case went to trial. To disprove it, prosecutors relied on testimony from William Acker, a prolific jailhouse informant. Acker testified that Gonzales confessed to him that he had been tipped off about the raid and wanted to kill a cop. Gonzales was convicted of first-degree murder, with a special circumstance finding that he had killed an on-duty law enforcement officer. He was sentenced to death. But prosecutors at the time failed to disclose information to Gonzales’ defense team that would have damaged Acker’s credibility. And the case happened at a time when a massive jailhouse informant scandal was brewing and went on to throw many convictions into doubt. Now, as...

    Earlier this month, in Northern California, a lovelorn woman waited for a package that would never come. Janet, as we’ll call her, because she didn’t want her real name used, had recently fallen for a handsome Turkish doctor she met online. He told her he loved her and promised to come visit her, just as soon as he was done with his assignment in Yemen. But first, could she help him? His bank was shuttering and he needed to get a box full of gold bars and cash safely into the United States. The box was worth an estimated $6 million, and if she helped him transport it, the riches were theirs. The box, of course, never came; the riches did not exist. Her lover was not an international doctor but a romance scammer, who was probably professing his love for a dozen other women at the same time. Janet didn’t realize this until two years into her ordeal, when she logged onto Facebook and saw someone with a different name using his exact same photos. By that time,...

The comedian was last in the United Kingdom as part of his tour but told audiences he was "still kind of processing" the event, much to the disappointment of those who flooded his performances following the slap.

    (CNN)Prosecutors in St. Louis County, Missouri, have filed a request to vacate the murder conviction of Lamar Johnson, who has been behind bars for more than 27 years for a crime they believe he didn't commit, officials said Wednesday. Johnson was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole after he was convicted of murder in the killing of Marcus Boyd in 1995. But an investigation by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner alleged misconduct by prosecutors and police at the time. The sole eyewitness who testified at trial later recanted, and two other people later signed sworn affidavits confessing to involvement in Boyd's murder.Gardner's office had previously asked for a new trial for Johnson, but a judge ruled in August 2019 that the court did not have the authority to do so because the motion was filed after the mandated deadline of 15 days after the verdict.

    In October 2021, the latest victim came forward and accused Wisener of molesting her since she was 11 years old. She told her parents and law enforcement that he would often take photographs and record videos of the abuse. Authorities searched Wisener’s home and seized multiple data storage devices that were found to contain child pornography, including photographs and videos of Wisener abusing the victim. During the search, law enforcement also discovered thousands of pieces of unopened mail and packages not belonging to Wisener. The Georgia man had stolen the mail from his place of employment at the Postal Service processing and distribution facility. The 60-year-old pleaded guilty to federal child exploitation and stolen mail possession charges. Wisener was sentenced to 30 years in prison, ordered to pay $175,000 in restitution, $5,200 for special assessment, required to re-register as a sex offender, and required to forfeit his home residence.
    Comedian Chris Rock rejected an invitation to host the 2023 Academy Awards, according to him. Rock made a joke about the invitation while performing at Phoenix's Arizona Financial Theatre on Sunday. He stopped in Arizona as part of his Ego Death tour. He compared the Oscars offer to the late Nicole Brown Simpson, saying going back to the award ceremony was similar to Simpson being asked "to go back to the restaurant" where she infamously went to retrieve some eyeglasses she had left the night she was murdered.

    Since the CZU Fire devastated Big Basin State Park and a large swath of the Santa Cruz mountains in August 2020, there has been a lot of hard work done to rebuild. As we mark the second anniversary of the fire this month, it is a natural time to reflect on what we have lost and search for long-term solutions to protect and preserve the natural resources that make the Bay Area one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. A new partnership between Sempervirens Fund and The Y of San Francisco — a collaboration born from the ashes of the CZU fire — to preserve Camp Jones Gulch near La Honda can serve as one long-term preservation model and inspire others. The partnership was forged after camp administrators saw the CZU fire march toward its borders, and Sempervirens Fund watched it burn the ancient redwoods the organization is sworn to protect. It includes a $9.6 million conservation easement that will preserve more than 900 acres that include creeks, waterways and precious old-growth redwoods that, in the fight against...
    (CNN)A Louisiana man has been exonerated after spending more than 36 years in jail for rape, according to court documents. Sullivan Walter, now 53, was "exonerated after 36 years, 1 month, and 30 days incarcerated for a rape he did not commit," Innocence Project New Orleans (IPNO) said in an Instagram post.

    A fugitive Brazilian cop who fled the country after being convicted of murder for executing a young law student outside a nightclub, has been arrested in Florida after a decade on the run—and five years after the victim’s mom tracked him down on social media. Omar Assaf Júnior, 42, was taken into custody Tuesday by the U.S. Marshals Service, according to extradition filings obtained by The Daily Beast. Assaf, a former state police officer in the city of São José dos Pinhais, was found guilty of pumping three fatal bullets into 19-year-old Thiago Klemtz de Abreu Pessoa, while off-duty. Sentenced by a judge in Brazil to 16 years in prison, Assaf vanished and has instead spent the past 10 years living openly in the Kissimmee area, where he worked for his uncle’s maintenance company and ran his own furniture and decor business. Assaf’s capture marks the close of an infamous homicide that came to be known in Brazil as the “Massacre do Bar Harmonia,” for the name of the spot where Assaf shot Klemtz de Abreu Pessoa died in an...
    Matthew Hunt, a longtime leader in the Los Angeles Police Department known for his disarming Irish accent and willingness to confront problems within the department, including publicly calling out his boss in the days after the unrest that followed the acquittals of the officers involved in the beating of Rodney King, died on Saturday. He was 91. He died at his daughter’s residence in Rancho Palos Verdes of complications of cancer, according to his son, Tom Hunt. “He was ahead of his time,” former City Councilmember and Police Chief Bernard C. Parks said, praising Hunt for his dedication to creating a more diverse and transparent department. “He was really a stickler and spoke up and wasn’t shy about fairness. Holding people accountable, but fairly.” During his 31 years with the department — a trajectory that began with graduating valedictorian at the academy and led to him ultimately being considered as a finalist for the department’s top job — Hunt rose to the rank of deputy chief. He spent many years with the department working in South L.A., where he extolled...
    A Massachusetts man has been indicted in the strangling death of a 20-year-old college student whose murder has stumped investigators for nearly four decades. John Carey, 63, is charged with killing Claire Gravel, a sophomore at Salem State College, in 1986, Essex County District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett announced Wednesday. Carey, who in 2008 was sentenced to 20 years in prison for attempted murder after trying to garrote a former neighbor with a necktie a year earlier, is currently incarcerated at MCI Concord, a medium-security facility in the northeastern part of the state, Blodgett said. “For 36 years, Robert Gravel has carried this photo of his daughter Claire in his wallet,” Blodgett told reporters at a press conference, gesturing to a photo of the young woman projected onto the wall behind him. “And today I’m pleased to announce that the man we believe who’s responsible for her murder has been indicted.” Claire Gravel was last seen at a local pub on June 29, 1986. She was there with friends after playing in a softball game, and was later given...
    This poor cat was missing for eleven years until he was finally rescued from the streets and reunited with his owners, all thanks to a microchip. Source: WE FG/Youtube The cat, Marauding moggy Ziggy, went missing in 2011 when he was just one year old. His owner searched for him but was not able to find him. That is until she saw pictures of him posted on Facebook. A vet conducted a check on his microchip and confirmed it was their long-lost four-legged friend! The cat’s owner, Ruth, said that she thought the cat was living as a stray and being fed by homes around the neighborhood.

But none of this is possible without first taking one big leap. When Artemis I launches on August 29, the uncrewed mission will test every new...

    Choices. You have choices! In fact, the availability of choices is among the greatest advantages of deciding to buy a new construction home. Whether choosing between builders and neighborhoods; corner lots or cul-de-sac lots; single-story, two-story or multifamily; three bedrooms plus flex space or four bedrooms,  new construction provides opportunities to tailor a home to a lifestyle. Not to mention the elevations of each floor plan plus seemingly countless combinations of options and upgrades. Instead of choosing between remodeling the 1990s kitchen or replacing the flooring throughout an existing home, the new-home buyer might get to decide between a home office with a separate outdoor entrance and an adjacent powder room or a junior primary suite bedroom on the main floor. Calculate space for your lifestyle Better to have more space now and less furniture to fill it than to get the itch to move five years from now for lack of space.

    June Gibbons dressed with care the day she was taken to Broadmoor. She and her twin sister, Jennifer, were — bizarrely — excited at being admitted to the notorious hospital for the criminally insane. The girls had just pleaded guilty to a five-week crime spree in West Wales, including 16 counts of burglary, theft and arson. To say they were troubled teenagers barely describes how odd and anti-social they were: most people found them spooky, even sinister. The twins’ attitude to Broadmoor was by no means the only unusual thing about the identical 19-year-olds: since early childhood they had refused to communicate — even with members of their own family. The Silent Twins, as they became known, lived in a weird, intense world in which they were utterly entwined. They had become imprisoned in that world. Now, in the summer of 1982, having been sentenced to be detained indefinitely — a word they did not understand — they believed they were being offered treatment that could set them free them from their mental torment. They imagined themselves at Broadmoor ‘sitting...
    CATCHING Covid increases your risk of conditions including dementia, psychosis and brain fog up to two years after infection, a new study suggests. Scientists at the University of Oxford also noted a greater risk of anxiety and depression, but found this subsides two months after infection. 1Children were more likely to be diagnosed with some conditions, like seizures and psychotic disorders after catching the virusCredit: Reuters The study, which was published in the Lancet Psychiatry, looked at 1.25 million people diagnosed with Covid over the last two years. It found that children were more likely to be diagnosed with some conditions, like seizures and psychotic disorders after catching the virus. According to the research, the newer variants of the virus - Delta and Omicron - are more likely to trigger serious mental health disorders than the Alpha strain. Professor Paul Harrison, lead author of the study, said: "In addition to confirming previous findings that Covid-19 can increase the risk for some neurological and psychiatric conditions in the first six months after infection, this study suggests that some...
    A MOM has been charged with murder after she allegedly left her infant in a hot car for five hours - an act she committed years prior to her other child. Ivy Lynn Lee, 22, of Lake Charles, Louisiana, flagged down an off-duty deputy on Sunday afternoon, saying her six-month-old daughter, Rissa, was not breathing. 4Mother-of-two Ivy Lynn Lee was arrested after police allege she 'intentionally' left her infant in a hot carCredit: Facebook/Ivy Lynn Lee 4Lee allegedly left her six-month-old daughter, Rissa, in a car for five hours 4Lee was booked for second-degree murder The deputy attempted to save the baby's life before paramedics transported her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

    Actor Brad Pitt will not be facing criminal charges following an altercation with then-wife Angelina Jolie and their children in 2016. Pitt, Jolie, and their six children, Maddox, then 16, Pax, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8 were on a flight from Nice, France, to the United States when the fight between the pair, which would ultimately result in their divorce, began. Despite several accounts that Pitt grabbed, shook, yelled at, and even poured beer on Jolie and the photo evidence of the injuries, the FBI will not be charging the actor, according to recently released documents. "This author provided both [assistant U.S. attorneys] copies of a probable cause statement related to this incident," the document reads. "After reviewing the document, representative of the United States Attorney’s Office discussed the merits of this investigation with the case agent. It was agreed by all parties that criminal charges in this case would not be pursued due to several factors." BRAN VS. GELINA: BRAD PITT SUES EX-WIFE ANGELINA JOLIE OVER FRENCH VINEYARD "You’re...

    SANTA CRUZ – Two years have passed since a series of lightning strikes unleashed an unprecedented level of fire devastation in Santa Cruz County, flattening more than 900 residential homes and nearly 1,500 structures overall. When the smoke cleared from the 2020 CZU Lightning Complex fire, the recovery process began and efforts to rebuild infrastructure, restore wildland and refine response efforts have been ongoing ever since. A rare lightning storm crackles over Mitchell’s Cove in Santa Cruz around 3 a.m. Aug. 16, 2020. The lightning strikes ignited several fires within the Santa Cruz Mountains, which grew to be the CZU August Lightning Complex fire. (Shmuel Thaler – Santa Cruz Sentinel file)  Rebuilding efforts The fire started on Aug. 16, 2020 and burned for 37 days, decimating 86,509 acres of land across Santa Cruz and San Mateo counties. The Sentinel reported that 911 homes were destroyed in Santa Cruz County alone, primarily in northern county regions like Boulder Creek, Ben Lomond and Felton. “It’s overwhelming to think about and even more overwhelming for the people who lived through it with their...
    SAN FRANCISCO — The Oracle Park seats were still filling up as the 2012 championship Giants team filed down an orange carpet out of center field. A quick survey of the crowd in house on Saturday night giving a standing ovation for the champions says everything about what this team meant to Giants fans. Ten years after this team swept the heavily-favored Detroit Tigers in the World Series, most of the names on the backs of the fans’ jerseys were on that 2012 roster. Names that define an era of Giants baseball that brought three titles to San Francisco. Buster Posey, Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, Hunter Pence, Pablo Sandoval, Brandon Crawford. For various reasons, most of those faces of the franchise weren’t at Oracle Park to celebrate the Giants’ 10th anniversary of that 2012 title run, sandwiched by two others in a stunning run of success for this franchise. Posey and Lincecum among them. But 24 players on that roster — Cain, Angel Pagan, Pence, Marco Scutaro, Javier Lopez, Barry Zito, Ryan Vogelsong among them — reunited on the field...

    Wisconsin police have charged a man suspected of a 1992 double homicide. Tony Haase, now 51, is accused of killing both the daughter of the man who was involved in a snowmobile crash with Haase's father 15 years prior and her boyfriend. Waupaca County Sheriff's Office has since charged Haase with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide. Tanna Togstad and Timothy Mumbrue were found stabbed to death in their farmhouse in rural Waupaca County. Togstad was stabbed once in the chest, and Mumbrue was stabbed multiple times, with their pet dog also stabbed to death. After giving a DNA sample during a traffic stop last month, police discovered Haase was a “major male contributor” to the fluids found on the scene, according to a police report. Haase admitted to the decades-old murders Thursday after initially denying involvement. Haase then admitted to investigators that the murders happened after he'd been bar hopping alone on March 20, 1992. As he became drunk, Haase thought about his father, who had died in a snowmobile race after a crash with Togstad's...
    (CNN)On the five-year anniversary of a violent White nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, the city is pausing to reflect on the events of that weekend and hold several remembrance events in the coming days. The Unite the Right rally took place from August 11 to 12, 2017, and resulted in the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer. The violence also turned the city into another battleground in America's culture wars and highlighted growing polarization. On Thursday, the president of the University of Virginia, Jim Ryan, said in a letter to the university community that it would hold a moment of silence at the university chapel, after which the chapel's bells will ring "in remembrance of this solemn anniversary." The Unite the Right trial is exposing the chasm between who plans White nationalisms battles and who does the fightingThe university is also hosting an online panel discussion titled "The Legacies of Charlottesville: A Fifth-Anniversary Conversation About Law and Democracy in America." Ézé Amos, a Charlottesville photojournalist and University of Virginia employee, documented the rally through photography. Amos is sharing the photographs in...
    Nearly 10 years after the disappearance of journalist Austin Tice in Syria, his family is still demanding answers and calling on the U.S. government to do more to bring him home. Tice, a freelance journalist for several news organizations, including CBS News and the Washington Post, was reporting on the civil war in Syria when he was abducted on Aug. 14, 2012, near Damascus. No one has claimed responsibility for his kidnapping, and it’s not clear if he’s still alive. BIDEN DEMANDS ‘ANSWERS’ ON 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF MARINE JOURNALIST’S ABDUCTION IN SYRIA Here’s what we know about his disappearance. Tice abducted in August 2012, making him one of the longest-held U.S. hostages Tice was taken by unknown captors on Aug. 14, 2012.

    An L.A. County sheriff’s deputy has been charged with repeatedly sexually abusing three young sisters years after charges were not filed against him in the case of another girl who reported him in 2006, prosecutors and the sisters’ attorney said Wednesday. In a 33-count indictment, Deputy Sean Essex, 51, was accused of performing lewd acts and oral sex on the sisters, one of whom was under age 10 at the time. He was also charged with sexually abusing the fourth girl in 2006, an accusation that the district attorney’s office had declined to prosecute at the time. “It’s absolutely shocking to us that the county didn’t do more to investigate and bring this terrible perpetrator to justice in 2006,” said Spencer Lucas, a lawyer for the sisters and their mother. “He was a dangerous predator, and this whole terrible abuse that these poor little girls went through should have been stopped, and it never should have happened.” Prosecutors did not immediately say why the office previously declined to prosecute the first case under Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley. It was...
    by Josiah Lippincott   Immigration. Trade. War. The GOP already has the formula it needs for sweeping victory in this fall’s midterm elections. Republicans just need to follow it. Donald Trump showed the way. His presidential announcement speech in 2015 was a masterpiece of political rhetoric. It was also a blueprint for a message that could cut through the nightmare web of corruption, decay, and incompetence that characterizes our modern political system. Trump’s focus on issues of national sovereignty—the big three issues of immigration, trade, and war—was the reason this former reality TV star rocketed to the highest office in the land. It is also why the American political establishment pulled out all the stops to remove him from that office. Trump, rightly, is angry about the 2020 election and social media censorship. The vast bulk of his posts on Truth Social and Telegram are about election integrity and encouragements to his supporters to follow other banned voices. But those issues, on their own, will not be enough to propel Republicans to the kind of critical mass of votes...

On Sunday, the 81-year-old was a part of the celebration of the 1980 Philadelphia Phillies World Series championship team at Citizens Bank Park where he received a standing ovation.The Phillies planned on honoring Rose in 2017 but chose not to after a woman alleged that he had sex with her when she was less than 16 years old.Before the game, Rose was asked by Philadelphia Inquirer writer Alex Coffey about the 2017 sexual assault allegations and whether his presence at the ballpark sends a negative message to women. "No, I'm not here to talk about that," Rose responded. "Sorry about that.

    When Gary Numan says something’s weird, you know it’s very weird. This is a man whose idea of a ‘quite normal’ family life is living in Los Angeles in a house that looks like a castle with trapdoors and secret passages, complete with a 20ft bronze dragon in the garden where others might have a garden gnome.  The pop icon is talking about how his second facelift involved having his skin hoiked skyward to such a degree that he has to shave behind his ear.  ‘I have to kind of pull my ear forward,’ he says, demonstrating. So he has stubble in places it shouldn’t be? ‘Yeah. I haven’t shaved today so I can feel it. Isn’t that weird?’  Weirder still is that he says he’s ‘not that bothered’ about cosmetic surgery, having only had two facelifts (and five hair transplants). It’s his wife Gemma who’s the true addict. She’s had, well, everything, up to and including full body lifts.  Gary Numan with his wife Gemma and their three daughters in the garden of their LA home ‘Gemma’s well into it....
