    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A possible road rage shooting ended with a fiery crash in Philadelphia’s Frankford section. Now, police are looking for the gunman. Police are searching for the person behind the wheel of a burgundy Toyota sedan they believe may be the shooter who opened fire and struck another driver.  READ MORE: Eagles' LB Haason Reddick Teams Up With Camden County Commissioners To Host Youth Football CampEyewitness video shows the fiery crash police say was prompted by a violent attack in broad daylight.  Officials say the 31-year-old driver of a GMC Jimmy crashed near Butler and Sepviva Streets in Frankford just before 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon after being shot at least once in the head by another driver.  Cell phone images show flames engulfing his car moments after the impact, as a crowd gathered to see what happened. He, along with a female passenger, were able to get out and were taken to the hospital.  “It appears this is a road rage incident that followed an accident and attempt to flee from that accident,” Inspector D F Pace said....
    The Great Dying, Earth's largest-ever mass extinction, wiped out 90 percent of life on Earth 250 million years ago, but this devastating period was followed by 'a dramatic rebirth of life' where animals evolved to be faster and smarter than their dead ancestors, according to a new study. A team of paleontologists, led by the University of Bristol, found that following the End-Permian Extinction new predators emerged that resulted in prey developing new defenses. Lizards and birds became faster by developing a posture that was more upright and mammals and avian developed some form of insulation – either hair or feathers. The Triassic period, from 252–201 million years ago, also saw a massive rise in energy levels of species both on land in and the water. Professor Michael Benton of the University of Bristol School of Earth Sciences, the lead author of the new study, said in a statement: 'Everything was speeding up. 'Today, there is a huge difference between birds and mammals on the one hand, and reptiles on the other. 'Reptiles are cold-blooded, meaning they do not generate...
    The reports to campus officials late last year revealed disturbing allegations about players from San Diego State University’s winning football team. Claims were rapidly spreading among the school’s athletes that five players had raped an unconscious girl and left her bloodied and bruised at a house party off campus. “I am very scared and worried that nothing is being done about this,” one student-athlete told university officials in a message sent through an anonymous reporting system, which was reviewed by The Times along with other internal campus records in the case. Now, more than seven months after the alleged Oct.16 incident, San Diego State officials have not launched an internal investigation or student disciplinary proceeding, both of which are intended in part to help protect students and employees from those found to have engaged in sexual misconduct. Nor have they alerted the campus that police are investigating a reported sexual assault involving students and provided information for potential witnesses to contact authorities.

    The production company of the ill-fated Rust film is challenging a New Mexico safety agency's findings that found producers 'knew that firearm safety procedures were not being followed on set' of an accidental shooting - and are accusing the agency of being 'out of its depth.' Rust Movie Productions filed a notice of contest Tuesday arguing the New Mexico Environment Department's Occupational Health and Safety Bureau is unequipped to make determinations of safety violations on movie sets. 'The supposed 'fire extinguisher' NMED claims should have been inspected and maintained is not a real fire extinguisher – it is a special effects device used to create fake smoke,' according to the motion. 'The attempt to extend the application of a fire extinguisher regulation to a special effects device shows their misunderstanding of the film industry.' The OHSB released a report in April citing a slew of 'willful and serious' safety violations following a six-month investigation into the circumstances leading up to the accidental October shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza.  Following the report, Rust Movie Productions was fined $136,793,...
    Dillian Whyte has called for a rematch against Tyson Fury and insists his opponent's knockout blow was illegal because it was a two-handed shove - rather than the uppercut - that caused him to hit his head on the canvas.

    Vladimir Putin bathes in antler blood extracted by painfully hacking off a deer's horns and is 'constantly' accompanied by a doctor specialising in thyroid cancer, reports claim. The Russian president was introduced to the unusual remedy by now-defence minister Sergei Shoigu, and apparently enjoyed a soak in a 'bathtub containing an odorant extract from blood-filled deer antlers' in the mid-2000s. While there is no concrete proof that the antlers of Altai red deer, native to Siberia, help with body rejuvenation, Putin is said to be a fan following recent theories that he declared war while suffering medical problems hidden from the Russian people.  Vladimir Putin with deer in the Tyva region in Siberia, Russia, pictured on holiday on July 20, 2013 The reports come from investigative media Project (or Proekt) media - blocked in Russia and now functioning from abroad. It added that the president isn't the only fan of animal-blood based treatments; a former official said big names in the Kremlin's elite circle - including Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin and head of Gazprom Alexey Miller - have antler extract flown over. Other officials are...
    (CNN)Tim sent me out for the food. Burgers from one place and wings from another. When I came back to the apartment he was standing in front of the television, hands on his head. Michael Croley "He's going to blow it," he said when I walked in, balancing bags and drinks and keys. He grabbed the hem of his T-shirt and billowed it several times to fan himself. He had sent me to get the food so that he could watch the game. Or I had volunteered. My memory fails me sometimes when I need it, and I need it even for insignificant details, because Tim died last May and everything that wasn't important suddenly is."You're sweating," I said, putting a bag down."This guy is blowing this game. They're going to lose."It was March 2002. The first March he and I had spent together since I was probably 11 years old, and he had gone away to college. I was 24 and he was 30. He had taken half the day off to be home to watch the NCAA Tournament....
    After Southern California resident Eduardo Mena was arrested in August 2021 and found with 300 election ballots in his possession, right-wing media were quick to make election fraud claims. But according to Sgt. Mark Ponegalek of the Torrance Police Department, there is no evidence that Mena had election fraud in mind — as those ballots were among the many allegedly stolen items in his possession. Mena was arrested on August 16, 2021, and SFGate reporter Eric Ting notes that the following night, the Torrance Police Department posted details of his arrest on Facebook. The Facebook post read, “Last night, officers responded to a male subject passed out in a vehicle in the 7-11 parking lot. Officers learned he was a felon & located Xanax pills on him. Officers continued their investigation and discovered a loaded firearm, methamphetamine, thousands of pieces of mail, a scale & multiple CA drivers licenses and credit cards in other individuals’ names.” The “thousands of pieces of mail” part is important, as the ballots were only part of the mail the Torrance Police suspected Mena...
    Rep. Madison Cawthorn, 26 (pictured) - the youngest member of Congress - and his wife, Cristina Bayardelle Cawthorn, 27, are divorcing after eight months of marriage America's youngest Congress member is divorcing his wife after a mere eight months of marriage, citing his job as a lawmaker as a factor in the split. North Carolina Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn, 26, announced Wednesday that he and his wife, Cristina Bayardelle Cawthorn, 27, mutually made the 'enormously difficult decision' to divorce after realizing there were 'irreconcilable differences' between them. 'When Cristina and I were engaged, I was not a member of Congress. I felt called to serve and we both agreed that I should run. Our victory was unprecedented, but overnight our lives changed,' he said in a statement posted by his spokesman. 'That change has been both hectic and difficult, it's neither the pace nor the lifestyle we had planned for.' The couple was wed on April 3, 2021 in an intimate ceremony after sharing a whirlwind romance, in which Bayardelle said she knew he 'was the one' after just months of dating....
    Alec Baldwin's wife Hilaria on Friday night lamented that her husband's involvement in the shooting death of a cinematographer on set meant she had 'lost my voice in this giant cyclone', vowing that she would not let the tragedy affect them or their relationship. In a gushing tribute to her husband - which critics immediately seized on as insensitive - Hilaria, 37, provided a deeply personal account of how the October 21 tragedy had affected her. 'I lost my voice in this giant cyclone of modern day media, social and 'news',' she wrote in Instagram.  'I stopped speaking because of fear. You always encourage me to speak, use my voice, stay true. You were right and continue to inspire me.'

    KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS/AP) — A jury on Friday was just days away from deciding the fate of Kyle Rittenhouse. With that in mind, CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar took a look back at how we got here – and revisited some those here in Kenosha who are forever changed from the events of August 2020.

    Share this: Around New York City in the weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks, as an eerie quiet settled over ground zero, South Asian and Arab men, especially in neighborhoods such as Brooklyn’s “Little Pakistan” around Coney Island Avenue, started vanishing. Soon, more than 1,000 were arrested in sweeps across the metropolitan area and nationwide. Most were charged only with overstaying visas and deported to their home countries. But before that happened, many were held in detention for months, with little outside contact. Twenty years later, in the aftermath of all the remembrances and memorials to the events of 9/11, little attention has been paid to the fate of these men and their families.
    Dr. Fiona Hill was among the national security experts who testified during the hearings for former President Donald Trump's first impeachment. Hill looks back on Trump's presidency in article for the November/December issue of Foreign Affairs, discussing his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin and arguing that the U.S. has some of the daunting problems that plagued post-Soviet Russia during the 1990s. "Indeed, over time, the United States and Russia have become subject to the same economic and social forces," Hill explains. "Their populations have proved equally susceptible to political manipulation. Prior to the 2016 U.S. election, Putin recognized that the United States was on a path similar to the one that Russia took in the 1990s, when economic dislocation and political upheaval after the collapse of the Soviet Union had left the Russian state weak and insolvent. In the United States, decades of fast-paced social and demographic changes and the Great Recession of 2008–9 had weakened the country and increased its vulnerability to subversion." Hill continues, "Putin realized that despite the lofty rhetoric that flowed from Washington about democratic...
    BOSTON (CBS) — There has been a ton of movement in the standings for Eastern Conference teams in Major League Soccer this year … for everybody except the New England Revolution. After a draw in Chicago to open the season back in mid-April and a loss in their fourth match of the year in early May, the Revs have been dominant. They’ve already set a franchise record for wins with 19, and with six matches left on the schedule, they’ll surely be adding to that total. It’s been a steady, consistent run for Bruce Arena’s team this year, and everyone who followed the team knows it. For anyone who hasn’t followed closely, MLS released a comical graphic that sums up just how dominant the Revolution have been this season: 27 match weeks in. Just a straight line at the top for @NERevolution. ???? pic.twitter.com/o2vNwRRJ8x — Major League Soccer (@MLS) September 28, 2021 It’s hard to beat that consistency. The Revs will try to keep that going on Wednesday night in Montreal, before a two-week break that precedes their final four matches...
    The Covid Delta variant may finally have started to peak in the US - amid speculation it has followed the same two month trajectory as other prior mutations.    While cases in the United States are still rising, the rate has slowed in recent weeks, leading many experts to believe the variant that devastated the nation is running out of fuel. Cases grew by 67 percent from August 2 to August 16, from 85,000 per day to 142,000 per day, and only 15 percent, 139,000 per day to 160,000 per day from August 17 to 31. The sharp decline in case rise could be a blip on the radar, a brief respite before a larger spike to come, or it could be the beginning of the end of 2021's summer surge. Previous surges have often last around two months, though, and with Delta first erupting in the Midwest at the end of June, this peak could represent the mutation following the same schedule as prior variants, which began to fall after two months.  Cycles of...
    The economic situation of Barça, like that of other clubs, does not offer much room for maneuver. But by now it is already known that sometimes it is better to pay a certain amount for a player before it multiplies a little later. In this situation FC Barcelona has seen itself with respect to Abde Ezzalzouli, far right of Hercules. Canterano of the Alicante team, he is Moroccan, he is only 19 years old and has a contract until 2022, but Hercules refused to let him leave for less money than the two million clause, especially being aware of the interest of so many First teams.
    (CNN)Add the late PBS painter Bob Ross to the list of youthful memories with a darker side, at least in terms of the messy battle that followed his death. "Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal & Greed" won't ruin anyone's childhood, but it does reflect the difficulty of remembering such personalities in pastel-hued colors, especially when green enters the picture."Bob Ross" begins by dutifully charting Ross' rise as a TV personality. He followed a stint in the Air Force by teaching art, using his soothing voice, trademark mane and knack for churning out landscapes at lightning speed to secure a spot on television hosting "The Joy of Painting."Ross achieved those breakthroughs with the help of a couple, Annette and Walt Kowalski, who championed him and his work, before assuming control of Bob Ross Inc. after he died of cancer in 1995 at 52.It's at that point when the documentary -- directed by Joshua Rofé, and produced by Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone -- kicks into a different gear. The filmmakers proceed to explore how the Kowalskis cemented and protected their authority...
    ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — Officers are investigating after it appears that an elderly Roseville couple was followed home from a store and robbed.

    A convicted felon broke into a poker champ's camera-filled home with his face mask lowered, then stole a safe containing $1 million that he used to buy a Maserati, police say.  Brock Brewer, 32, was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Tuesday on eight felony charges, including burglary while in possession of a gun; home invasion; theft $100,000 or greater; conspiracy, and possession of a gun by a prohibited person. The arrest stems from a home invasion that occurred on February 10 in Henderson Township, Nevada, during which at least two burglars broke into the home of Las Vegas poker player Chad Power and got away with a safe containing $750,000 in cash and $250,000 in chips. Brock Brewer, 32 (left), has been accused of breaking into the Nevada home of professional poker player Chad Power (right) and stealing a safe containing $1million in cash and chips According to an arrest report obtained by Las Vegas Review-Journal, Brewer and at least one accomplice followed Power home one day to see where he lived. They later ransacked...
    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta criticized the CDC for issuing coronavirus guidance that doesn’t necessarily follow science, which results in people “doing things that we don’t need to be doing.” Gupta also said he can understand why Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said she doesn’t consider the CDC the “gold standard” anymore. Gupta began by discussing school reopenings and said that “we could have probably opened schools, in some ways, based on the knowledge that we had, much earlier.” After viewing the clip of Collins, Gupta stated, “It pains me to say this, but I see where she’s coming from — Sen. Collins — on this. I think for a long time, the concern was the CDC was providing guidance at the beginning of the pandemic that was not scientifically based. And as a result, we didn’t do things that we should have done in this country that could have greatly mitigated what has happened here. And now I think it’s almost a little bit of the reverse problem. The science is not...
    Frequent viewers of cable news television have heard repeated claims that the reason why unemployment numbers remain at the very high level of six percent, is that unemployment benefits are discouraging people from returning to work. President Joe Biden aimed to squash that idea, however, during a midday address about jobs and government assistance to help a cratered economy emerge from the ill effects of Covid-19. Fox News programming has been particularly strong on reports that employers are finding it difficult to hire people, claiming that many are too happy with government benefits to get back to work, but these reports have surfaced as well on CNN. And indeed, many of these reports feature small business owners making that claim. A less than impressive jobs report emerged on Friday of last week, which Biden referenced. “I know there’s been a lot of discussion since Friday’s report that people are being paid to stay home rather than go to work,” he said. “We don’t see much evidence of that,” but confusingly followed with “that is a major factor. He then clarified...
    Screenshots from the Zoom class. YouTube/Joshua Rose Last week a video showing a high-school teacher's remarks on police killings was posted online. At one point she said George Floyd should have followed police orders, and told her class to always do so too. The teacher was placed on administrative leave within days of the video being posted. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. A high-school teacher in Fairbanks, Alaska, has been placed on administrative leave over remarks she made during a class discussion on police killings, KUAC reported.  A video of the discussion — which happened during a virtual class meeting — was posted to YouTube last week. While school officials have not named the teacher, she is addressed as "Ms. Gardner" in the video, and a Connie Gardner is listed as a special-education teacher on the Lathrop High School website.  She is heard lecturing students about recent police killings, including those of Daunte Wright and Ma'Khia Bryant, arguing that the media disproportionately focuses on incidents involving white officers killing Black suspects, and defending officers for having to...
    On Friday’s broadcast of NPR’s “Morning Edition,” Director of the Harvard Healthy Buildings Program and Associate Professor Dr. Joseph Allen criticized the CDC’s school re-opening guidelines by stating that if schools follow the guidelines, schools that are open now would close, and “if schools start following this new guidance strictly, kids are not getting back to full-time school.” Allen said, “We’ve seen examples where schools have stayed open and have been effectively open with very little in-school transmission, even in communities with high community spread. In fact, CDC’s own report has shown that. We’ve also seen the opposite. We’ve seen low community spread, poor controls in school, and cases. So, the community spread metric idea sounds great, but the reality is, it doesn’t really tell us what’s happening in schools. 90% of the schools right now in the U.S. are in what CDC deems the red zone, even schools that have been open with no cases or very little to no transmission in the schools. So, essentially, reliance on community spread metrics means schools will stay closed, or they won’t...
    Retired Army General Stanley McChrystal has compared the MAGA riot to the evolution of Al-Qaeda saying in both instances people followed a 'powerful leader' who 'justified their violence', as he warned America is headed for a homegrown insurgency. McChrystal, the former commander of American troops in Afghanistan, said there are terrifying parallels between the birth of the terrorist group responsible for the September 11 terrorist attacks and the violent siege on the US Capitol last week that left five dead and sent shockwaves around the world.  Donald Trump has given his supporters 'legitimacy to become even more radical', he told Yahoo News, with his Stop the Steal rhetoric now a radical rallying cry similar to the Lost Cause adopted by the Southerners in the American Civil War. McChrystal, who was fired by President Barack Obama after he made disparaging remarks about him and then-Vice President Joe Biden, warned that now 'the fabric of something very dangerous has been woven', the consequences will continue long after Trump leaves office.  His comments come as the nation is still reeling from the January...

    PITTSBURG — The Contra Costa District Attorney has cleared four Pittsburg officers who in 2018 shot and killed an armed man during a two-hour standoff, writing that an officer may have wound up dead if the officers hadn’t used lethal force. In a 36-page report released to the public Monday, DA Diana Becton found that none of the three officers committed a crime when they fired at 36-year-old Salvador Morales, a Pittsburg resident who was wanted for allegedly kidnapping his estranged wife and their baby, and nonfatally shooting his brother-in-law earlier that day. The officers have been identified as: Sergeants William Hatcher Gabriel Palma, and Chuck Blazer, as well as Cpl. Alex McCray. The report notes that video shows Morales fired a shot moments before the officers opened fire, though in interviews, the officers cited something else as their reason for firing: that Morales raised his handgun in their direction. In the moments before the shooting, an officer struck Morales with a less-lethal rubber round, which may have caused him to pull the trigger and fire a shot into...
    Los Angeles officials approved a $700,000 payout to a veteran police lieutenant in September after city attorneys determined his supervisors — including Assistant Chief Horace Frank, one of the LAPD’s highest-ranking commanders — wrongly demoted him after he reported alleged misconduct in his unit, records show. In a confidential legal analysis reviewed by The Times, Deputy City Atty. Marianne Fratianne advised the city to settle the lawsuit brought by Lt. Raymond Garvin — former head of the department’s Bomb Detection Canine Section — because the facts of the case “simply do not bode well for the City.” Among other issues, internal communications showed that Frank and Garvin’s direct supervisor, Capt. Kathryn Meek, had “commiserated about how there was an insufficient factual basis” to remove Garvin from his position, then built “an ad hoc paper trail of poor performance” to remove him anyway, Fratianne wrote. In addition to raising questions about the leadership of Frank, who oversees all special operations and detective bureaus, Fratianne’s analysis described a canine unit once again engulfed in allegations of mismanagement and wrongdoing — years after...
    OAKLAND — A Bay Area man who was prosecuted federally after the Alameda County Sheriff publicly blasted the decision to release him on $0 bail amid the pandemic was sentenced to two years and six months in federal prison, court records show. Kristopher Sylvester, 35, was charged last June with being a felon in possession of a firearm, after being released on state charges of allegedly burglarizing a Hertz car rental business in Fremont. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White earlier this month. Sylvester’s case was highlighted by the Alameda County Sheriff’s office, one of many the office labeled a “Zero Bail Fail” in its push back against releasing people from Santa Rita Jail despite the pandemic. At the time, coronavirus cases were spiking in the jail, prompting regular quarantines and a countywide push by superior court judges to reduce the jail’s population. Both prosecutors and the defense agreed to the 30-month term. In a sentencing memo, Sylvester’s attorney wrote that he “never had a chance” and that he’s been stuck in jail for...
