In video sermons, the man railed against vaccines, "bad medicine" and doctors whom he deemed to be "priesthoods of the medical cult." And he explained why he refused to vaccinate his children, saying: "It didn't seem smart to me that you would be saving people who weren't the fittest. If evolution believes in survival of the fittest, well then why are we vaccinating everybody? Shouldn't we just let the weak die off and let the strong survive?"

Two problems have long plagued the Oscars: telecasts that drag on too long and award nominees that no one has heard of. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences is now tackling both concerns with changes to its annual prizes. Blockbuster movies, long ignored by Hollywood's most prestigious awards, will get an Oscar of their own -- outstanding achievement in popular film, intended to honor the pictures that draw the most fans to theaters.
Dean Norton, director of horticulture at George Washington's Mount Vernon, pulls out his cellphone and cranks up some Jimi Hendrix music as he walks toward the cannabis patch on the founding father's estate. The "weed" is tall, planted in tight rows and has the serrated leaf edges of your classic ganja. As Hendrix's 1968 epic "Voodoo Child" drifts from the phone, Norton jokes about having a suitable vibe for the plot. "We should have a speaker in the middle," he says. "Would people go nuts? "

It sounds like a flimsy excuse. But poppy seeds really can make you fail a drug test, both peer-reviewed scientific studies and unofficial experiments conducted by journalists have found. Because they're derived from opium poppies, they sometimes contain traces of morphine ― not enough to get you high, obviously, but potentially enough to register on a highly sensitive drug test. That's what a Maryland mother says happened to her back in April when she went to the hospital to give birth.

The U.S. midterm elections are at increasing risk of interference by foreign adversaries led by Russia, and cybersecurity experts warn the Trump administration isn't adequately defending against the meddling. At stake is control of Congress. The risks range from social media campaigns intended to fool American voters to sophisticated computer hacking that could change the tabulation of votes.
One of the major problems the NFL has been having with the issue of player protests during the national anthem is that while league officials desperately want the whole thing to go away, President Donald Trump might not. Criticisms of protests, and the league's handling of them, have been a frequent theme for Trump in his tweets and speeches at rallies, amid strong indications that he thinks his hard-line stance plays well with his base. That has greatly exacerbated the problem for the NFL, but Aaron Rodgers has a solution: Just "ignore" the president's provocative commentary.
The sign on her door reportedly said, "Save the drama for your mama." But when that message didn't appear to get across to the man masturbating on her doorstep, the 68-year-old Houston woman warned she would have to go get her pistol.
