WASHINGTON - The chief sponsors of the GOP's 11th hour effort to curtail the Affordable Care Act will debate two of their Senate opponents, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., on Monday night - an arrangement that surprised some of Sanders's Democratic colleagues, who learned about the debate when host network CNN blasted out a news release. According to Sanders spokesman Josh Miller-Lewis, CNN came to the senator with the idea earlier in the week, and Sanders signed on without hesitation.
When the 4-year-old slipped her hand into her grandmother's purse, she was searching for something sweet, her father told the Tampa Bay Times. Shane Zoller told the newspaper that his daughter, Yanelly, was looking for candy while visiting her grandparents last week in North Tampa, Florida. Instead, she found a handgun, then accidentally shot and killed herself, Zoller said. "I was driving to pick her up with her bathing suit in my car to take her to the splash pads," Zoller told the Times. "When I pulled up, that's when I saw all the police lights."
Rain and hail were pelting down and a thunderclap roared across a lake in central California. From afar, the fiery lightning strike that came with it looked like an explosion, darting down a tree trunk before it hit a father and his two young children who had hunkered down beneath it. "It hit that person. It hit a person," a camper shouted in a video that captured the scene earlier this month from across Jennie Lake near Sequoia National Park. "They fell into the - like near the water. "We have to go help them."
The headaches began in March. The couple didn't think much of them - until Carrie DeKlyen began vomiting. An initial scan showed a mass in her brain. More tests showed that it was a form of cancer, possibly lymphoma, but treatable. But a pathology exam revealed a more grim diagnosis. The 37-year-old mother of five from Wyoming, Michigan, had glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. If lucky, she could live for five more years. The tumor was removed during surgery in April, said her husband, Nick.
"Marry Me" or "Marry You"? "Can't Stop the Feeling" or "I Gotta Feeling"? "Lucky" or "Get Lucky"? If you're putting together a wedding playlist, the choices are endless. But if you'd like to know what others across the country are picking, help has arrived. Spotify and the author of its Insights blog, Eliot Van Buskirk, were kind enough to share data with us on all the wedding playlists made by users since the service started in 2008. Let's start with the most basic question: Which songs are most frequently included on wedding playlists in the United States?
The Marine Corps plans to soon assign a female infantry officer to a combat unit, a historic first, following her anticipated graduation from the service's grueling Infantry Officer Course, service officials said Thursday.
In the 1950s, it was said that when an elderly woman died, the "flour and shortening" business lost a customer, while when a young woman married, the cake-mix industry gained one. In short, two constituencies: those who baked and those who faked. Today, there's an audience that falls somewhere in the middle and proves the value of a different kind of mix - the kind that is versatile, ready to go and additive-free. The kind you make yourself.
David Meade, the self-described "specialist in research and investigations," has earned a fair amount of publicity online for predicting that catastrophic events will soon befall Earth.
NEW YORK - President Donald Trump on Thursday announced an executive order to grant additional authority to the Treasury Department to enforce economic sanctions on North Korea and countries that do business with the rogue nation in Northeast Asia.

It's never been easier to avoid dairy, thanks to an ever-expanding array of plant-based milks: Rice, soy, hemp, oat, coconut, almond, macadamia, hazelnut, cashew. But some people can't drink some of those milks due to nut or soy allergies. Some aren't good for the environment: Many words have been written about the water that almond milk production wastes. Women may be concerned about the estrogen-like compounds in soy. And alternative milks can be lacking in certain vitamins and nutrients, such as protein.
