Have you ever wondered what it's like to get the full Jim Harbaugh ref experience, from the frenzied, unblinking eyes staring at you to the constantly agape mouth? With officials wearing hat cams at the 2022 Big Ten Championship Game between Michigan and Purdue, it was only a matter of time before Harbaugh went off. To be fair to Harbaugh, very few of us would look normal when recorded during an argument and aired in slow motion, but the Michigan coach does seem to take the weirdness to another level.

The Supreme Court is about to confront a new elections case, a Republican-led challenge asking the justices for a novel ruling that could significantly increase the power of state lawmakers over elections for Congress and the presidency. The court is set to hear arguments Wednesday in a case from North Carolina, where Republican efforts to draw congressional districts heavily in their favor were blocked by a Democratic majority on the state Supreme Court because the GOP map violated the state constitution. A court-drawn map produced seven seats for each party in last month's midterm elections in highly competitive North Carolina.

KYIV (Reuters) -Russian President Vladimir Putin is not sincere about peace talks with Ukraine while he is taking the war to a new level of "barbarism" by trying to turn off the lights of civilians, a top U.S. diplomat said on Saturday. U.S. Under Secretary for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland met President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and other senior Ukrainian officials in Kyiv to show support at a time when Russia is trying to destroy the country's energy infrastructure. "And it's very clear, whether it's the energy attacks, whether it's the rhetoric out of the Kremlin and the general attitude, that Putin is not sincere or ready for that."
Former President Trump called for the termination of the Constitution's rules regarding elections to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election following the release of more detailed information about Twitter's role in suppressing a story about Hunter Biden. “A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,” Trump said in a Truth Social post. Deputy White House Press Secretary Andrew Bates disagreed with this call to terminate Constitutional rules, saying, “Attacking the Constitution and all it stands for is anathema to soul of our nation, and should be universally condemned.”

Michael Steele, a former chair of the Republican National Committee, warned Friday that extremist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) will essentially be the next speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in all but name. The conspiracy theory-peddling Greene and other far-right GOP lawmakers will hold enormous sway over House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) should he be elected the chamber's next speaker in January, Steele said on a broadcast of MSNBC's “Morning Joe.” Greene “will be the most powerful speaker of the House because she will have the opportunity to control what comes out of Kevin's mouth around the things that matter to that small cadre,” he predicted.
A man described as a “person of interest” in the killing and dismemberment of four men in eastern Oklahoma admitted to a woman that he killed the men and “cut them up,” according to a prosecutor's affidavit. Authorities believe 67-year-old Joseph Kennedy shot and killed the four men on Oct. 9 at Kennedy's scrap yard, according to the affidavit unsealed Thursday and signed by Assistant District Attorney Carman Rainbolt. Kennedy told a woman in Gore, Oklahoma, that he killed and dismembered the four men because they were stealing from him, according to the affidavit, which was filed by prosecutors who were seeking to increase Kennedy's bond.
In the early morning hours, a man preparing to leave for work in Plano, Texas, stopped by the trashcan in the driveway to throw away garbage and got quite a fright when he opened the lid. A Ring camera captured the surprising moment with the footage first showing raccoons rummaging in and around the trashcan. “As soon as I lifted the lid of the garbage can, a stowaway raccoon was waiting on me to free him,” the man told ViralHog.
She told Storyful her daughter stepped outside to wait for the bus and the raccoon was sitting on the porch. The video shows the raccoon quickly latch onto Rylee's leg, who then screams and attempts to shake the animal off. MacNamara rushes to help her daughter, grabbing onto the animal by the scruff of its neck.
Twitter's new owner shared a thread from author and Substack writer Matt Taibbi who is apparently now in possession of the trove of internal documents, which he opted to painstakingly share one tweet at a time, in narrative form. Taibbi noted on his Substack that he had to "agree to certain conditions" in order to land the story, though he declined to elaborate about what the conditions were. We'd suspect that sharing the documents in tweet form to boost the platform's engagement must have been on the list.

Americans looking to travel by air domestically or enter federal government facilities without showing a U.S. passport will need to obtain a REAL ID, an updated driver's license that complies with new federal standards, by May 3, 2023.

The Department of Homeland Security advises people to mention it when making an in-person appointment at the agency.
If you're looking to eat healthier, research from Tufts University suggests you may be better off snacking on Fritos or savoring an ice-cream cone with chopped nuts, rather than devouring a multigrain bagel. The scientific team at Tufts' Friedman School of Nutrition and Science created what's being described as “a new nutrient profiling system” that is designed “to help consumers, food companies, restaurants, and cafeterias choose and produce healthier foods.” Called the Food Compass, the system rates foods on a 1-to-100-point scale, with 100 being the healthiest rating, and bases the scores on such factors as nutrients, food ingredients, processing characteristics and additives.

Prosecutors accused Meng of bank fraud and other crimes for misleading HSBC Holdings Plc and other banks about Huawei's relationship with a company that operated in Iran.

“If you work…to install a Supreme Court that will eliminate constitutional rights, prepare to live with the electoral consequences.”
