The Denver Post editorial board did what Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) has so far refused to do: It offered a sincere apology to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).

The board said it was “embarrassed a Colorado representative is engaged in widening” divisions in the country.

In 2018, astronauts aboard the International Space Station plugged a 2mm "hole" in a Soyuz MS-09 vehicle that had docked with the station in June of that year. While the pressure leak never posed an immediate threat to those aboard, it set off a bizarre turn of events that saw Russia open an investigation to find out if the incident was the result of sabotage. Per an RIA Novosti article spotted by Ars Technica, the country's Roscosmos space agency recently completed its probe of the event and sent the results to Russian law enforcement officials, opening the door for them to announce criminal charges.
And it seems clear from your letter that your children wouldn't be able to afford the property taxes that would come with such a property if they were to buy it themselves today. Before I begin to answer your questions, I want to commend you on remaining clear-eyed about what your children will do with your home upon your passing. Too often parents assume that their children or grandchildren will want to inherit the family home to live in it.

"All nine cases are linked.

Stellantis NV Chief Executive Carlos Tavares said external pressure on automakers to accelerate the shift to electric vehicles potentially threatens jobs and vehicle quality as producers struggle to manage the higher costs of building EVs. Governments and investors want car manufacturers to speed up the transition to electric vehicles, but the costs are "beyond the limits" of what the auto industry can sustain, Tavares said in an interview at the Reuters Next conference released Wednesday. "What has been decided is to impose on the automotive industry electrification that brings 50% additional costs against a conventional vehicle," he said.

Their dinghy deflated in the open sea.

A Missouri hunter shot what he thought was a 16-point buck, but when he came out of cover and inspected his prize more closely, he saw something was amiss. Samuel Perotti had seen this well-antlered deer in photos captured by his game camera, the state Department of Conservation said, and recognized it even as he lined up his shot and pulled the trigger. Then came the surprise: Despite the impressive crown of bone protruding from the deer's skull, this was no buck, but a doe.
Though many people with obstructive sleep apnea are unaware of their symptoms, experts say your dreams may tip you off to the problem. According to the SCC, if you have sleep apnea, you're more likely to have "vivid nightmares" that symbolize your distressed breathing—your brain's way of alerting you to the threat. "Common types of nightmares for those with apnea include dreams about strangulation and choking, dreams about trying to breathe while underwater or in space, and dreams about clogged pipes and being stuck in an elevator," explain their experts.
Hundreds of mostly Haitian migrants, broke and exhausted, turned back to the city they had left a day earlier on Mexico's southern border, having failed to persuade authorities to move them to other parts of the country, caravan organizers said. Entire families carrying their belongings began the return trek to the southern city of Tapachula, after authorities said they would not be taken to other parts of Mexico immediately, despite pressure from migrants who set up road blocks. Haitian Bruno Noel was among hundreds of people who had a more than 26-kilometer (16-mile) walk ahead from Huehuetan in Chiapas state to Tapachula near the Guatemala border.
Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 three days before his first debate against Joe Biden, the former president's fourth and last chief of staff has revealed in a new book. Trump, Meadows says in the book, returned a negative result from a different test shortly after the positive. Nonetheless, the stunning revelation of an unreported positive test follows a year of speculation about whether Trump, then 74 years old, had the potentially deadly virus when he faced Biden, 77, in Cleveland on 29 September – and what danger that might have presented.
As rumors of a hoax were swirling around “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett's claim he was the victim of a hate crime attack in downtown Chicago, Smollett allegedly sent a text to one of the two acquaintances being questioned by police. “Brother .... I love you,” read Smollett's text to Abimbola Osundairo on the afternoon of Feb. 14, 2019.

Ayden Sanders, a senior at Oxford High, told The Daily Beast that students first thought it was a drill when an announcer broadcast a lockdown code over the speaker. They locked the two doors to their theater room and huddled behind a curtain in a teacher's adjoining office.

SYDNEY/JAKARTA (Reuters) -China told Indonesia to stop drilling for oil and natural gas in maritime territory that both countries regard as their own during a months-long standoff in the South China Sea earlier this year, four people familiar with the matter told Reuters. One letter from Chinese diplomats to Indonesia's foreign ministry clearly told Indonesia to halt drilling at a temporary offshore rig because it was taking place in Chinese territory, according to Muhammad Farhan, an Indonesian lawmaker on parliament's national security committee, which was briefed on the letter. A spokesman for Indonesia's foreign ministry said: "Any diplomatic communication between states is private in nature and its content cannot be shared."
Judges express deep skepticism of Trump's argument Clark and Millett also sparred over hypothetical scenarios in which an incumbent and their predecessor might disagree on whether information should be released to the public or to another branch of government. Millett asked Clark what would happen if a current president requested access to documents from a previous administration for national security reasons, and whether the former president could block that and ask the courts to intervene. Clark replied that he couldn't imagine a circumstance in which such documents would not go through a confidential review process.

City Council member Andre Dickens won a runoff election Tuesday to become Atlanta's next mayor, riding a surge of support that powered him past the council's current president, Felicia Moore, after finishing second to her in November. Dickens won a campaign dominated by concern over rising violent crime in the city, arguing he would be more effective than Moore, who had often been a sometimes-lonely critic of previous mayors in her 20 years on the City Council. Moore had been the leading candidate by a wide margin in the first round of voting on Nov. 2 among 14 candidates in a nonpartisan race.
“I know it doesn’t feel like it, but inflation is both a feature and a bug of a normalizing economy.”
“What is not going to work, and hasn’t worked, is trying to talk people out of the lived reality of higher prices.”
“When inflation expectations rise, actual inflation tends to follow.”
“The Fed must acknowledge that its monetary policy has been a source of inflation, and that it will need to raise interest rates.”
“The supply chain logjams are the core of the problem right now, and that should work itself out over time.”
