    by Philip Lenczycki   A decade-old Chinese-language press release reveals an elite Washington, D.C., think tank knew of a prominent Chinese academic’s high-ranking Communist Party position before hiring him a month later — an affiliation the think tank omitted from the English-language press release heralding the opening of their new center in Beijing. This new revelation comes as the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace takes fire from Republicans on Capitol Hill after a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found the think tank employed at least 20 Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members during current CIA director William Burns’ tenure as the group’s president. “The amount of CCP infiltration at Carnegie shows that Director Burns was aware and intentionally concealed it from the American people, or he was grossly incompetent,” Texas Republican Rep. Lance Gooden told the DCNF. “Anyone who enables our top adversary is not fit to lead a U.S. intelligence agency.” Carnegie opened its Beijing headquarters, Carnegie-Tsinghua, in partnership with a Tsinghua University humanities department in April 2010. Carnegie published two conflicting announcements in Chinese and English, both of which quoted Shi Zhiqin, who in the English-language release was described as...
    Five pregnant and postpartum women being held on drug charges in an Alabama jail have been released after lawyers argued their bail conditions were “unconstitutional.” One of the women, 23-year-old Ashley Banks, was arrested two days after she found out she was pregnant in May of this year and charged with possession of marijuana. She admitted to smoking weed two days earlier and was charged with “chemical endangerment of a child,” according to AL.com. Under Alabama law, this meant she was held in Etowah County jail on a $10,000 cash bond in order to protect her fetus, and couldn’t leave unless she entered a drug rehab program. Even when Banks’ family raised money for her cash bail, the payment was rejected because her bond conditions required her to have a place at a rehab facility. But specialists who evaluated her found twice that she couldn’t qualify for a place because she didn’t have a substance use disorder. Burns was held in jail for three months, despite having a high-risk pregnancy and sleeping on the floor due to overcrowding, according to...
    A popular sports bar in San Francisco’s Mission District was heavily damaged in a fire Saturday. The Double Play Bar and Grill was at 16th and Bryant streets, in a space that has been home to a bar since 1909. It was filled with baseball memorabilia and steeped in baseball history, being across the street from the former site of Seals Stadium — home to the Pacific Coast League San Francisco Seals from 1931 to 1957 and to the newly arrived Giants for two seasons before Candlestick Park opened. “The Double Play has burned down,” the restaurant wrote on its Facebook page. “Thank you to all the customers that have shared amazing memories here and enjoyed the food. … We will be closed until further notice.” Details about what caused Saturday morning’s fire were not immediately available. Though the owner’s statement said the Double Play had “burned down,” Supervisor Hillary Ronen, who represents the neighborhood, said the fire was stopped before it spread to the units above the bar in the three-story building. Those units have...
    Firefighters from five Los Angeles-area agencies are continuing to battle a 107-acre brush fire that broke out in Shadow Hills on Wednesday afternoon. The fire, first reported shortly after 1 p.m. at about 5 acres, was burning in light-to-medium brush near 10018 N. Sunland Way, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. The blaze was moving uphill, driven by winds of roughly 8 mph. By 3:45 p.m., the fire had grown to its current size of 107 acres. Capt. Erik Scott, a Fire Department spokesperson, told The Times around 5:30 p.m. that all forward progress on the fire had been stopped but that crews were “not out of the woods.” Firefighters continued to extinguish flames within the burn perimeter and improve containment lines, Scott said. The blaze was 40% contained. California California is so hot and dry that not even soaking rain can ease fall fire peril Though the recent rains have helped tame some active blazes, it’s too soon to say goodbye to this year’s fire season. The fire is burning in very...

    London (CNN Business)Rich economies should hit oil and gas companies with new windfall taxes to provide help for countries suffering from climate change, and people struggling with soaring energy and food bills, UN Secretary General António Guterres said Tuesday.The UN chief accused energy giants of "feasting on hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies and windfall profits while household budgets shrink and our planet burns."Guterres' comments, at the UN General Assembly in New York, come on the heels of a European Union proposal to introduce a windfall tax on oil, gas and coal companies, many of which have reported record-high profits as Russia's war in Ukraine and an energy crunch send prices soaring.The European Commission is proposing that EU states take a 33% share of the companies' surplus profits. The United Kingdom introduced a 25% windfall tax earlier this year to provide relief for people struggling with their energy bills but newly installed Prime Minister Liz Truss has said she won't extend it to pay for a much bigger program of subsidies this winter and next. US President Joe Biden's...
    SAN JOSE – Sharks general manager Mike Grier joked last week that part of the reason he traded Adin Hill when he did was to save coach David Quinn the headache of having three NHL goalies at training camp. “I did that once,” replied a smiling Quinn, who had Henrik Lundqvist, Igor Shesterkin, and Alexandar Georgiev on his New York Rangers team in 2019-2020. Hill’s departure to the Vegas Golden Knights on Aug. 29 answered at least one question the Sharks would have had at camp, which starts Wednesday in San Jose. But there remain a handful of others as the Sharks begin a new era under Grier with a coaching staff led by Quinn. “The system and the mentality,” Quinn said when asked what he’ll emphasize early in training camp. “You can’t have an effective system unless you have the right mentality. That’s something we’ll stress from the minute we start training camp.” Quinn and the Sharks don’t have a day to waste to try and implement that system. Their first preseason game is Sunday, and they leave for...
    The final sound as the Queen's body is lowered from view into St George's Chapel's vault during her committal service on Monday will be a lone piper's moving lament.

The role of the royal piper, also called the Queen's piper, is considered one of the most prestigious for pipers in the Armed Services. Among the duties of piper, who is the only non-royal allowed to wear Balmoral tartan, he plays for the monarch for 15 minutes every morning. Whether she was at Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, Holyroodhouse or Balmoral, Pipe Major Paul Burns played for the Queen daily, standing underneath her window.  The Queen shakes hands with a former Queen's piper, Pipe Major Scott Methven from the Royal Regiment of Scotland, who performed the role between 2015 and 2019 The current Queen's piper, Pipe Major...

    Fox News commentators Tucker Carlson and Jesse Watters hit back against woke documentary filmmaker Ken Burns for his tone deaf comparison between sending migrants to Martha's Vineyard and the Holocaust. Burns, who was making the talk show rounds to tout his three-part series exploring the U.S. action and inaction during the Nazi atrocities during World War II, couldn't help but see the correlation between the genocide and a political maneuver by Governor Ron DeSantis. The Florida Republican made headlines on Thursday morning after sending a plane of migrants to the tony vacation spot off Cape Cod, Massachusetts, a regular vacation spot of the Kennedys. On CNN on Thursday, host John Berman asked Burns to draw parallels between Nazi death camps and the preppy vacation island.  Fox News host facetiously called Martha's Vineyard a 'death camp' but suggested that the migrants who landed there are better off than they were in El Paso Ken Burns, who has a new documentary out about the Holocaust, said that sending migrants to Martha's Vineyard was a move 'straight out of the authoritarian playbook' Members...
    CNN’s John Berman emphasized that his comparing migrants arriving in Democrat cities to the Holocaust was not him drawing “a parallel in any way,” when speaking with documentarians Ken Burns and Lynn Novick on Thursday. Burns and Novick were on CNN’s New Day to talk about their new documentary, The U.S. and the Holocaust, and talked about how the United States, which took in more refugees fleeing Nazism and the war “than any other sovereign nation,” could still have done more. Berman noted that such documentaries are about history, but said that “all of them also make you think about where we are now.” He then connected Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) providing transportion for migrants from Florida to Martha’s Vineyard to the evils of the Holocaust. “We woke up to the news this morning that Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida sent two planeloads of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, off the coast of Massachusetts, including kids and whatnot,” he said, directly relating that to the Holocaust and Nazi Germany before saying that he was in no way doing that. “And I’m not saying–...
    A Maryland man was apprehended after a struggle with officials arresting him for attempting to light his own house on fire while his daughter was home, officials said. Dorchester resident Larry Herd, Jr., 38, of Madison has been charged with multiple crimes after allegedly attempting to burn down his house, according to the Maryland State Fire Marshal. First responders from the Madison Volunteer Fire Department were dispatched to a White Marsh Road home shortly before 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14, when a neighbor reported a fire in a one-story single-family home. It took crews an estimated 30 minutes to bring the blaze under control, but not before it caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to the residence, the fire marshal said. The investigation into the fire determined that Herd allegedly intentionally set it in multiple locations throughout the home, and that his underage daughter was home at the time of the incident. Before he was apprehended, officials noted that there was a brief struggle between Herd, deputy State Fire Marshals, and a Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputy before he...
    Getty Nate Diaz & Jorge Masvidal Former two-time welterweight title challenger Jorge Masvidal wants to fight current UFC champion Leon Edwards next, and “Rocky” loves that Masvidal is “begging” for the opportunity. After Edwards knocked out longtime king Kamaru Usman last month at UFC 278, Masvidal took to Instagram, writing in a Story: “I heard we going to London again.” He also included three chicken leg emojis and a soda emoji, pointing to his coined “three-piece and a soda” line he said after his backstage altercation with Edwards in 2019. Masvidal struck Rocky multiple times after the two came face to face at a UFC London event. After the incident, Edwards firmly started on the campaign trail trying to fight Masvidal. But, “Gamebred” showed little interest in stepping inside the Octagon with the Englishman. However, that changed when Edwards became champion, and Rocky now appears to relish the turn of events. “100% (I enjoy it),” Edwards said to BT Sports’ Ariel Helwani last week (h/t MMA News). “I remember when I was meant to fight Woodley and it...
    A Maryland woman suffered accidental burns when an indoor fire-pit flashed when she tried to light it in Washington County, state officials said. Members of the Funkstown Volunteer Fire Company responded to a home on Plumwood Circle in Hagerstown shortly before 11 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13, where there was a reported fire that broke out on a coffee table in the living room. Crews were able to quickly get the fire under control, but the homeowner suffered burns to her face and left side of her body and was transported by family members to Meritus Medical Center. Her condition was not immediately available on Wednesday, Sept. 14. The fire caused an estimated $5,000 in damage to the home. 
    Keene Mayor George Hansel conceded to Hillsborough County Treasurer Robert Burns in the GOP primary for New Hampshire's 2nd Congressional District on Wednesday. Although no major outlets have called the race, Burns leads Hansel by 2 percentage points, 32.8% to 30.8%, with 76% of the votes counted. Businesswoman Lily Tang Williams trailed in third place with 25%. Burns, who aligned himself most closely with former President Donald Trump in the race, is slated to face six-term congresswoman Annie Kuster (D) in the general election for the slightly left-leaning seat. "Last night didn't go our way, but I would like to thank all of our supporters and voters who made this campaign possible," Hansel said in a statement. "Ann Kuster has been an absolute disaster for New Hampshire, and I look forward to doing everything I can to ensure we defeat her this November."

    The U.S. Forest Service is resuming its prescribed burning program with new rules that it says will minimize the risk of fires escaping control and damaging communities. The announcement comes after a 90-day pause prompted by a pair of escaped burns that merged into the largest wildfire in New Mexico history and destroyed hundreds of homes. But some experts say the restrictions, which include requirements that agency administrators authorize ignitions for 24-hour periods only and be on-site for certain burns, create more barriers to doing the work precisely when the need for it is most acute. “At face value, it seems like these are not that big a deal,” said Bill Tripp, director of natural resources and environmental policy at the Karuk Tribe Department of Natural Resources in Northern California. “But in actual practice, it’s pretty much going to shut burning down at any level significant to what needs to take place, at least in the Forest Service jurisdictions.” Prescribed burning refers to the practice of setting land alight under optimal conditions to ensure it burns at a relatively low...
    Former MI6 spy Christopher Steele has stated Vladimir Putin 'can't survive' defeat in Ukraine as the Russian president faces mounting tensions at home over his army's failures. Yesterday, it was reported that Ukraine had made remarkable advances in a counter-offensive that caught the Russian Army by surprise. A lightning attack by Ukrainian forces smashed Russian lines last week and punched deep into occupied territory, liberating more than 30 settlements in the Kharkiv region, President Zelensky announced on Friday. Today, Ukrainian forces are still pushing north in the Kharkiv region, while videos and pictures emerged yesterday showing troops standing victoriously on top of Russian flags in the liberated city of Balakliaa.  In a tweet, former MI6 officer Christopher Steele wrote: 'The Ukrainian counter-offensive in Kharkiv and Kherson has so far exceeded all expectations.  'If the ragbag Russian army of undisciplined drunks and thieves is routed, as now seems possible, it will be the end for Putin. Despite his propaganda machine, he can't survive defeat in war.' Ex-MI6 spy Christopher Steele has stated Vladimir Putin 'can't survive' defeat in Ukraine as the Russian...
    by Philip Lenczycki   The Department of Defense (DOD) spent nearly $400,000 funding nuclear warfare research that was conducted by former Chinese government employees — one of whom the Daily Caller News Foundation previously identified as a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) member. Li Bin and Zhao Tong — two nuclear policy experts who previously served as Chinese government employees — were both fellows at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace when conducting the DOD-funded research, according to the think tank’s records. Li is also among at least 20 Carnegie staffers the DCNF previously identified as CCP members. These undisclosed CCP members worked at the think tank while current Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns served as Carnegie’s president. The findings raise serious national security concerns, Brandon Weichert, a national security expert, told the DCNF. “This is a cartoonish level of penetration,” Weichert said. “[Carnegie is] planting the seeds of doubt about Chinese intentions and capabilities in the minds of men and women who during a crisis would have to make decisions based on the intelligence that they received over the years.” Annual reports reveal...
    Share this: Mea culpa. I’m late on the date for this, but we’ll still get it into the right month. For September Dodger birthdays I had several interesting choices. Three were Charley Dressen Andy Pafko and Eddie Miksis. Then I came across Thomas P. Burns, born September 6, 1864. He intrigued me. He was a fabulous talent, but he was a pariah. Why?—Answer is…this quote from a teammate. “He was a disturber and one of the worst that ever played ball. His disposition was very bad, and he made it unpleasant  for any of  the boys that crested him. He is what you would call a bulldozer.”  I’ve not come across such a lengthy zinger by one ballplayer about another. That was enough to bring him to light. Thanks must go to Pinterest, who put his baseball card on the screen, and the wundermenchen at Wiki for helping me research him. There was much more to Thomas P. Burns, son of Irish immigrants. He didn’t start off to be anything memorable. He played outfield and pitched. He began with the...
    Tina Compton did everything with her husband and her daughter. The 47-year-old Hemet woman was a devoted mother and full-time caretaker to Mikayla Porter, 27, who had autism. She was a doting wife to her husband, Ian, 40, who her friend Kimberly Valadez described as “the love of her life.” Monday wasn’t supposed to be any different for the Porter-Comptons. But around 4 p.m. Monday, a fire erupted near their home on Avery Canyon Road. The blaze quickly grew, prompting the tight-knit family to gather their belongings and evacuate their home. Alongside their four pets, the Porter-Comptons jumped into the family vehicle to evacuate. Then their car stalled. Tina Compton quickly problem solved. Thinking it was heat causing the stall, she hurried to fetch a hose from the house to cool down the car, according to an account of the events from her brother, Tim Chitwood. By then, it was too late. Although Chitwood has confirmed the deaths of Ian and Mikayla, the Riverside County Coroner’s Office said they have not been able to positively identify the pair because of...
    Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns said on Thursday that President Joe Biden's declassification of intelligence regarding Russian President Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine has proven "effective" in thwarting his imperial conquest. Those types of decisions are “always very complicated ones,” Burns remarked at the Billington Cybersecurity annual summit in Washington, D.C as reported by NBC News. “But I think when President Biden has decided very carefully and very selectively to, you know, make public some of our secrets, it’s played a very effective role over the course of the last six months,” he continued, opining that “if we make it the exception, not the rule because the surest way, I’ve certainly found in a year and a half now as director of CIA, to lose access to good intelligence is to be reckless about how you handle it.” READ MORE: Ukraine poised to 'bag a bunch' of Vladimir Putin's 'stupid, drunk and brutal' soldiers: military expert Burns explained that “ensuring that Putin fails in Ukraine" remains the intelligence community's priority, stressing that “we have stripped away the pretext...

    A pregnant woman was held in an Alabama jail for three months in an effort to 'protect her fetus' after she was arrested for marijuana possession, while another remains behind bars after giving birth. Ashley Banks, a 23-year-old from Gadsden, was arrested on May 25 for carrying a small amount of marijuana, possession of a pistol without a permit to carry and failure to appear on a previous theft of property charge. She then admitted to smoking weed the day she found out she was pregnant, just two days earlier.  As a result, she was not allowed to leave the Etowah County Jail and was left bleeding on the jail floor for five weeks as she suffered from a high-risk pregnancy. Meanwhile, another mother, Hali Burns remains behind bars following her arrest just days after she gave birth to her son, while visiting him in the NICU. She had tested positive for methamphetamines and a drug to treat opioid-addicted pregnant women while she was pregnant. They are among up to a dozen pregnant or post-partum women are now being held...
    Kathy Petersen has lived in Hemet for 13 years and had known of fires in the area but had never been close to one until Monday. Peterson, 54, got an alert on her phone that warned about the Fairview fire and looked out her window, seeing smoke everywhere. “I didn’t think I was gonna have to evacuate,” she said, “but as it got closer, I knew.” Peterson didn’t have a car, but a neighbor came and got her, and they drove to Tahquitz High School in Hemet, where an evacuation center had been set up. The fire, which has killed two people and injured another, has exploded in size over the last day, growing more than 15,000 acres in 24 hours after it was established in the canyons and lined up with the winds and terrain, according to Jon Heggie, a spokesperson for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. He estimated the growth to be 23 square miles, or roughly half the size of San Francisco. California California fires killing people before they can escape their...

    By ROB GILLIES and ROBERT BUMSTED JAMES SMITH CREE NATION, Saskatchewan (AP) — As the manhunt dragged on for one of two brothers wanted in the stabbing deaths of 10 people in Saskatchewan, the rampage raised questions Wednesday of why the suspect — an ex-con with 59 convictions and a long history of shocking violence — was out on the streets in the first place. Myles Sanderson, 32, was released by a parole board in February while serving a sentence of over four years on charges that included assault and robbery. But he had been wanted by police since May, apparently for violating the terms of his release, though the details were not immediately clear. His long and lurid rap sheet also showed that seven years ago, he attacked and stabbed one of the victims killed in the weekend rampage, according to court records. Canadian Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said there will be an investigation into the parole board’s assessment of Sanderson. “I want to know the reasons behind the decision” to release him, he said. “I’m extremely concerned...
    By ROB GILLIES and ROBERT BUMSTED JAMES SMITH CREE NATION, Saskatchewan (AP) — As a Canadian Indigenous community comes to grips with a deadly stabbing rampage by two of its own, many blamed rampant drug and alcohol use that they linked to government failures — and others asked why the chief suspect had been recently freed from prison despite a long history of violence. Myles Sanderson, has 59 criminal convictions, according to parole documents. He’d been serving a sentence of four years and four months on charges that included assault with a weapon, assault on a peace officer and robbery when he was released. Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said he’s been told by the parole board there will be an investigation into its assessment of Myles Sanderson, who remained a fugitive and the subject of a large-scale manhunt on Wednesday. “I want the know the reasons behind the decision” to release him, he said. “I’m extremely concerned with what occurred here.” Many of his past crimes happened when he was intoxicated, and he told parole officials substance use made...
    A sailor who has spent two years travelling the world on his boat has opened up about suffering horrific burns when a paraffin cooker exploded when he was alone on his boat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Max Campbell, 27, was sailing solo as part of a three-month voyage in 2016 and 150 miles from land when the antique cooker set fire as he tried to light it. He jumped into the water having suffered second degree burns to his 12 per cent of his body - on his face, arms, torso and chest - but had no option other than to go on sailing for two days until he reached shore. At the time, his body had gone into shock and he began hallucinating; but the oceanographer now says he never once believed he would die. 'It was pretty terrible, I always knew I would survive but it was very close, the closest I have ever been to losing my life - it was a really dark time,' he said. Max Campbell, 27, was sailing alone as...
    When the Mill Fire tore through the Northern California town of Weed, it not only injured residents and destroyed dozens of homes, it laid waste to a little-known but historically important piece of Black history. The Lincoln Heights neighborhood, largely flattened by the inferno Friday, is believed to be one of the only intact Black neighborhoods west of the Mississippi River that dates back to the early days of the last century. About three-quarters of Lincoln Heights was reduced to smoking rubble by the blaze that residents said moved with frightening speed after igniting a quarter mile away at or near the sawmill that was key to the neighborhood’s founding. Now, the historic community’s future is uncertain. “Everybody knew everybody,” said Dave Rodgers, 59, who arrived in Lincoln Heights in 1964 from Mississippi at age 2 with his mother and eight siblings. “Old people would sit on the porch. It was a friendly neighborhood. You needed something, everybody was there to help you.” WEED, CALIFORNIA – SEPTEMBER 4: The historically-Black Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Weed, Calif., sits in ruins, Sunday,...

    By ADAM BEAM and OLGA R. RODRIGUEZ WEED, Calif. (AP) — A fast-moving wildfire in rural Northern California injured several people Friday, destroyed multiple homes and forced thousands of residents to flee, jamming roadways at the start of a sweltering Labor Day weekend. The blaze dubbed the Mill Fire started on or near the property of Roseburg Forest Products, a plant that manufactures wood veneers. It quickly burned through homes, pushed by 35-mph (56-kph) winds. Annie Peterson said she was sitting on the porch of her home near the Roseburg facility when “all of a sudden we heard a big boom and all that smoke was just rolling over toward us.” Very quickly her home and about a dozen others were on fire. She said members of her church helped evacuate her and her son, who is immobile. She said the scene of smoke and flames looked like “the world was coming to an end.” Suzi Brady, a Cal Fire spokeswoman, said several people were injured. Allison Hendrickson, spokeswoman for Dignity Health North State hospitals, said two people were brought...
    Getty Khamzat Chimaev looks on after his welterweight fight against Gilbert Burns. UFC star Marvin Vettori believes that Khamzat Chimaev could have had his unbeaten record broken by Nate Diaz had they fought earlier. The rising prospect Chimaev is coming off a hard-fought war against former welterweight title challenger Gilbert Burns in April at UFC 273. Chimaev went into the bout with a 100 percent finish rate, having knocked out or submitted all ten of his prior opponents. Burns proved to be the toughest test for “Borz,” who ultimately edged out Burns to come out on top of the judges’ scorecards for the first time in his professional career. Chimaev is slated for a headlining bout with fan favorite Diaz for UFC 279 on Sep. 10 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Former middleweight title challenger Vettori shared his thoughts on the upcoming matchup between Diaz and Chimaev. While he does agree with Chimaev being the favorite, Vettori thinks that the clash would have been very different if Chimaev had not endured the challenge in his last...

    The Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) is helping a 1-year-old dog who was found suffering from severe burns to 20% of its body this week in Norwood. Annie was found with second-degree burns to her head, neck, shoulders, front limbs and abdomen along Route 1 around Ellis Avenue, the ARL said.

    Democrats are reportedly going to bat for a Trump-aligned Republican primary contender in a New Hampshire congressional race, marking the latest effort in their controversial spoiler strategy campaign. Democrats Serve, a political action committee that seeks to elevate Democrats with backgrounds in public service, has purchased over $94,000 worth of TV ads to prop up Bob Burns in the primary race for the state's 2nd Congressional District against Keene Mayor George Hansel, viewed as the more formidable challenger, who boasts the backing of popular Republican Gov. Chris Sununu, Politico reported. GOP PROJECTS CONFIDENCE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE RACE AS NATIONAL PROSPECTS DIM “Meet Bob Burns, the ultra-conservative candidate for Congress,” an ad for Burns funded by Democrats Serve says. “Burns follows the Trump playbook on immigration, the border, and guns. If we send Bob Burns, the 'unapologetic conservative,' to Congress, New Hampshire is gonna get burned.” Similar to other Democrat-funded spots promoting GOP primary hopefuls, the ad by Democrats Serve plays it coy, touting Burns as the "ultra-conservative candidate" and asserting that the...
    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is working on an 'invisibility cloak' made of a smoke-like obscurant that conceals US troops from enemies, which would replace the controversial white phosphorus that has burned the flesh off human bodies. The new war tool is still in early stages, but the 'smoke' could consist of liquid aerosol spray or engineered material, but DARPA states the obscurants will be 'deployed in specific ways to allow one-way vision through the plume.' The US military uses white phosphorus to create a smoke screen, but causes severe burns upon contact with the skin that can last up to eight hours - making it dangerous to American troops and civilians caught in the crossfire. DARPA's new obscurant would be safe to not only come in contact with, but also inhale. The current obscurants require troops using it to wear respirators on the field. The new war tool is still in early stages, but the 'smoke' could consist of liquid aerosol spray or engineered material. It would make US troops invisible to enemies, but work in a way...

    Getty Colby Covington reacts after being called the winner over Jorge Masvidal in their welterweight fight during UFC 272. UFC star Gilbert Burns has claimed that Colby Covington will likely be out for the rest of the year. Coming off a close-fought battle against the rising prospect Khamzat Chimaev, former title challenger Burns did not lose any stock in the April defeat at UFC 273. Burns received praise for putting on a thrilling performance that saw Chimaev meet his toughest test yet. He broke the Chechen-born Swede’s 100 percent finish rate, which he had maintained till his 11th outing. Burns became an instant fan favorite and got linked to a potential outing next with top ten ranked contender Jorge Masvidal, one of the biggest draws in the sport. A matchup with the prolific striker would make for a fan-friendly affair giving Burns the opportunity to endear himself more to the community. However, Masvidal appeared to backtrack on the prospect of facing “Durinho.” With the UFC planning a pay-per-view in Brazil in January 2023, Burns got asked about the...
    A dog in California named Chance the Rapper has turned blind after accidentally swallowing oxycodone while being taken out for a walk by the Los Angeles coast.  Lori Burns went on a walk with her two dogs along Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica last week when she caught sight of Chance, a 15-pound former shelter dog, panting before suddenly caving in.  She then immediately brought her pet, thought to be a Shih Tzu-poodle mix, to a veterinary for emergency treatment.  'They said they needed to immediately ice his body and give him oxygen and start an IV and that's when I looked at the vet and I said, 'Is he going to live?' and he said, 'I really don't know,'' Burns told KTLA.  The veterinarian told the dog owner that Chance had a fever of 106 degrees, five-to-six-and-a-half degrees higher than a pooch's normal body temperature, and would die from organ failure if it wasn't lowered. At the time of the incident, Chance had overdosed on the narcotic, which is labeled as 'incredibly dangerous' for dogs, according to dog-sitting website...
