Nearly a week after the latest sexual misconduct accusation against President Donald Trump, the story has largely landed with a thud. Some see the muted response to author E. Jean Carroll's allegation of Trump assaulting her in a department store dressing room more than two decades ago as yet another example of the divisive Politics of Trump: Those who support him dismiss it as fake news. After more than a dozen women came forward during Trump's 2016 campaign with allegations of sexual misconduct years earlier, Trump called them "liars" who sought to harm his campaign with "100-percent fabricated" stories.
A missing University of Utah student was last seen by a Lyft driver meeting someone in a car in a park, Salt Lake City police said Monday. Lueck then texted her parents to let them know she had landed and took a Lyft to Hatch Park in North Salt Lake City, arriving there at 2:59 a.m., he added. “The Lyft driver left Mackenzie at the park with that person and stated that Mackenzie did not appear to be in any kind of distress.” Lyft told CBS News in a statement that it is “actively assisting law enforcement with their investigation.” There were no irrregularities in Lueck's Lyft ride and her driver immediately began picking up other customers after dropping her off, the company added.
Why people are going to WorldPride The Stonewall riots — an incident that became a rallying cry for the nascent gay rights movement — were demonstrations that followed a police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York's Greenwich Village, on June 28, 1969. At the time, New York refused to grant licenses to bars that served gays, which allowed police to enter Stonewall with a warrant. They arrested 13 people that night.
US drones have been a key tool in conflicts against insurgent organizations such as the Taliban and the Islamic State group, but Iran's downing of one of the aircraft highlights their limitations against more sophisticated adversaries. "I believe sophisticated air defenses will continue to have good chances to shoot down an aircraft like an RQ-4 whenever it is in position to do meaningful surveillance of their territories or other assets," he said, referring to the type of drone brought down by Iran last week near the strategic Strait of Hormuz.
In her campaign video, Gideon criticizes Collins's vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court as a threat to abortion rights. In October, Collins defended the judge against allegations of sexual misconduct in a 30-minute speech on the Senate floor. Susan Collins's vote to put Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court may be paying off for her, but it's put women's control over their own health care decisions in extreme jeopardy,” Gideon says in the video.
A man accused of killing his roommate's Tinder date slashed his own neck during the murder trial on Monday while screaming in the courtroom. Aubrey Trail, a 52-year-old from Nebraska, yelled “Bailey is innocent, and I curse you all” before swiping something across his neck. Mr Trail was referring to his 25-year-old former roommate Bailey Boswell when he cut himself.
In what amounted to a face-off at the U.N's top human rights body, Ambassador Abdulaziz Alwasil insisted that special rapporteur Agnes Callamard had failed to follow proper procedures and used flawed sourcing in her 101-page report made public last week. "Accusations have been launched, and fingers have been pointed — (she is) supporting herself on non-credible articles or sources," he told the Human Rights Council, in Arabic through a U.N. interpreter. The report by Callamard, an independent expert on extrajudicial and arbitrary killings, alleged that Saudi Arabia bears responsibility for The Washington Post columnist's grisly apparent dismemberment by Saudi agents at the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul in October.
WASHINGTON/SEATTLE, June 26 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has identified a new risk that Boeing Co must address on its 737 MAX before the grounded jet can return to service, the agency said on Wednesday. The FAA did not elaborate on the latest setback for Boeing, which has been working to get its best-selling airplane back in the air following a worldwide grounding in March in the wake of two deadly crashes within five months. The new issue means Boeing will not conduct a certification test flight until July 8 in a best-case scenario, the sources said, but one source cautioned it could face further delays beyond that.
It appears that the 2021 Ford Bronco will be powered by the turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four currently in use in the Ford Ranger. The listing was discovered in a parts-lookup configurator at Canadian Tire and was first reported by Off-Road.com. Aside from a few nonspecific leaks and a handful of camouflaged spy photos, Ford has done a commendable job of keeping a lid on the precise details pertaining to the new Ford Bronco.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday mocked President Donald Trump's decision to impose "outrageous and idiotic" new sanctions, saying the effort to target top Iranian authorities reflects confusion at the White House. Rouhani noted that Western banking restrictions are unlikely to affect Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, saying the 80-year-old leader of the Islamic Revolution isn't getting rich off Western bank accounts. Imposing sanctions on Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif doesn't equate with Trump's stated willingness to negotiate without preconditions, Rouhani said.
Should an enemy submarine surface well beyond undersea or surface drone detection range and send intelligence to attack platforms - US Navy platforms could be vulnerable in some instances. Fortified by targeting data from well beyond the horizon, enemy subs, planes and ships might, in this case, be well-positioned for a coordinated strike. However, should an interwoven web of Navy surveillance assets track and share vital information, coordinated surface, air and undersea drones could sustain an unprecedented advantage -- and a new attack synergy could actually begin to transform maritime warfare.Enemy mines, surface ships, small boats and submarines might be detected more quickly, but, perh...
The United Arab Emirates appeared to distance itself from U.S. claims that pinned attacks on oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz on Iran. Honestly we can't point the blame at any country because we don't have evidence,” Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan said on Wednesday in Moscow. If there is a country that has the evidence, then I'm convinced that the international community will listen to it.
The Latest on the trial of a decorated Navy SEAL charged with killing an Islamic State prisoner in his care (all times local): 1:30 p.m. Officials have informed a Navy SEAL witness that he could face a perjury charge after he testified that he — and not Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher— had killed an Islamic State prisoner in Iraq. In an email sent Tuesday to a lawyer for Special Operator First Class Corey Scott, the Navy said it was considering charging Scott with lying under oath during Gallagher's court-martial.
Infighting at the National Rifle Association exploded Wednesday, when the powerful association severed ties with its longtime public relations firm, suspended operations of its fiery online TV station and lost its top lobbyist. The latest turmoil emerged just a year before the critical 2020 presidential elections when the NRA's ability to influence the outcome could decide the fate of gun rights. Lobbyist Chris Cox, long viewed as the likely successor to longtime CEO Wayne LaPierre, was placed on administrative leave about a week ago by the NRA, which claimed he was part of a failed attempt to extort LaPierre and push him out.
US regulators said Wednesday Boeing must address a new "potential risk" in the Boeing 737 MAX, further clouding the timeframe for resuming service on the planes after two deadly crashes. The issue, which surfaced during FAA simulator testing, concerns the ability of pilots to quickly reassert control of the plane if an automated flight handling system pushes the plane downward, said a person familiar with the matter. The Federal Aviation Administration "will lift the aircraft's prohibition order when we deem it is safe to do so," the agency said in an email.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders have broken out as frontrunners for young liberal voters, according to a new straw poll conducted by the progressive group NextGen, pulling ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden, who retains his lead in national polls as the first Democratic debates are about to begin here. The polling results to be released Tuesday afternoon, first viewed and reported by Yahoo News, show Warren with a huge lead among respondents ages 18 to 35, with 39 percent, compared with 26 percent for Sanders, the runner-up. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren addresses the crowd at the 2019 South Carolina Democratic Party State Convention.
One day, your Apple Watch might be able to see. That's according to the iPhone maker's new patent filing that spotlights potential plans to put an "optical sensor" on a new version of the smartwatch's flexible armband, a step-up from fixed-position cameras placed on watches like the Galaxy Gear. Apple's concept would allow for the wristband to capture photos and video, while the Apple Watch's display serves as the viewfinder.
SpaceX launched its Falcon Heavy rocket in the early hours of Tuesday morning, delivering 24 satellites into orbit and making many of its clients very happy in the process. The company nailed the landing of both side boosters, but the center core booster narrowly missed its landing and splashed down in the ocean instead. In the hours following the launch, SpaceX boss Elon Musk weighed in on the unfortunate fate of the core booster, offering a bit of an explanation as to why it missed its mark.
Jeremy Hunt, the foreign secretary, told the Commons on Tuesday: "The US is our closest ally, we talk to them the whole time, we consider any requests that they say carefully, but I cannot envisage any situation where they request or we agree to any moves to go to war. Mr Trump signed an executive order imposing financial sanctions on Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's head of state, and several senior military commanders on Monday in retaliation for the downing of a US surveillance drone last week.
NASA's Martian rover Curiosity has discovered that the Red Planet has been producing significantly more methane than previously known. "With our current measurements, we have no way of telling if the methane source is biology or geology, or even ancient or modern," said Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) Principal Investigator Paul Mahaffy of NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, on June 23rd, in a press statement. Understanding how much methane Curiosity found requires a measurement known as parts per billion units by volume, or ppbv.
In a surprise setback for small-government conservatives, Chief Justice John Roberts on Wednesday provided the swing vote to save a key piece of the administrative state: judicial deference to agency interpretations of regulations. Instead, thanks to Chief Justice Roberts, they lost big. Indeed, as angry as some conservatives still are over Roberts (twice) saving Obamacare, he now has defied expectations to save the administrative state as we know it.
The Latest on the offer by a former U of I student to locate body in exchange for a life sentence (all times local): 3:25 p.m. The family of a scholar from China killed by a former University of Illinois doctoral student says they're aware he offered to divulge where her remains were but weren't convinced the body would actually be found. A Wednesday statement from Yingying Zhang's relatives says they were "leery" of Brendt Christensen's offer "because he had lied so many times in the past."
