A Pennsylvania restaurant owner who screamed death threats directed at then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi while storming the U.S. Capitol was sentenced on Tuesday to more than two years in prison. Pauline Bauer was near Pelosi's office suite on Jan. 6, 2021, when she yelled at police officers to bring out the California Democrat so the mob of Donald Trump supporters could hang her. In January, U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden convicted Bauer of riot-related charges after hearing trial testimony without a jury.
Police secured arrest warrants for the angry mob accused of beating a doting Maryland dad to death while he protected his kids from bullies over a $30 dispute, a source told The New York Post. The warrants stem from the brutal melee on Friday, May 19, when Christopher Wright, 43, suffered brain damage after three teenagers and two adults confronted his 14-year-old son at their Brooklyn Park, Maryland, home to continue a schoolyard fight. Wright's fiancée, Tracy Karopchinsky, told 11 News that the attackers turned their attention on Wright after he refused to let them fight the boy.

Hundreds of goats munch on long blades of yellow grass on a hillside next to a sprawling townhouse complex. Targeted grazing is part of California's strategy to reduce wildfire risk because goats can eat a wide variety of vegetation and graze in steep, rocky terrain that's hard to access. The changes could raise the monthly salary of herders from about $3,730 to $14,000, according to the California Farm Bureau.

A reclusive deep-water species that's generally found on the coast, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) biologists think that sixgill sharks come into Puget Sound to pup. While it's unknown how long they stay for (and what their population sizes and exact diets are), the shallower waters of the Puget Sound have enabled us to learn more about them. The Seattle Aquarium has been studying them since 2003 after they noticed the occasional sixgill underneath their pier.
Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster was exhumed in April, according to a statement from the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, in Gower, Missouri. The nuns had been preparing for the addition of a St. Joseph shrine, and that involved “the reinterment of the remains of our beloved foundress, Sister Wilhelmina,” the statement said. When they exhumed Lancaster, they were told to expect only bones, since she had been buried in a simple wooden coffin without any embalming four years ago.

MOSCOW (Reuters) -President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Ukraine's biggest ever drone strike on Moscow was an attempt to scare and provoke Russia, and air defences around the capital would be strengthened. Russia said eight drones targeted civilian areas of Moscow and the Moscow region - with a population of over 21 million - in the early hours of Tuesday but were either shot down or diverted with special electronic jammers. Putin cast the assault, which brought the 15-month war in Ukraine to the heart of Russia, as a terrorist response that came after Russia struck at Ukraine's military intelligence headquarters several days ago.

Alligator snapping turtles can weigh more than 200 pounds, so it's tough to imagine a new population has just been discovered in Florida's Homosassa River. Where they came from and how they went missed are among the many questions state biologists are trying to answer, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. Nine have been trapped, including one that weighed 99 pounds, the institute told McClatchy News.
Turkey called on NATO hopeful Sweden on Tuesday to prosecute those responsible for projecting the flag of an outlawed group onto the parliament building in Stockholm, on the day of Turkish elections that extended President Tayyip Erdogan's rule. A Swedish parliament spokesperson said a number of people projected messages onto the building in Sweden's capital late on Sunday, adding it had no documentation about what was projected. The warning could raise the stakes ahead of a mid-July NATO summit at which some alliance members are urging Turkey to back Sweden's membership bid, after a year of delays over concerns that Stockholm must do more to take on militant groups.
Former President Trump is returning to his calls to remove birthright citizenship, with his 2024 White House campaign announcing Tuesday he would seek to end it via executive order on his first day in office. The proposal echoes a longtime demand of immigration restrictionists and a measure Trump toyed with while in office, attracting criticism from both immigration advocates and legal experts. Most experts agree that a president does not have authority to end birthright citizenship through an executive order, primarily because the practice is enshrined in the Constitution.
Mugisha Marie, 26, was arrested for investigation of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated assault causing serious injury and rape.

PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) - Violence by armed gangs has fallen "drastically" since the emergence of a vigilante justice movement that has seen at least 160 suspected criminals killed in the last month, a report by local human rights research group CARDH said on Sunday. The situation in the Caribbean country remains extremely volatile as heavily armed gangs continue to drive a humanitarian crisis that has displaced tens of thousands amid frequent kidnappings for ransom, gang rapes, tortures and murders. The vigilante movement, known as "Bwa Kale", began after residents of the capital Port-au-Prince lynched and set fire to over a dozen suspected gang members in the early morning of April 24.

A mysterious patch of fluorescent green water that appeared in Venice's famed Grand Canal Sunday was caused by a chemical commonly used in underwater construction to help identify leaks, environmental authorities say. It remains unclear how the substance ended up in the canal, but the Regional Agency for the Environment in Venice (ARPAV) said given the volume released it was unlikely to be an accident. The verdant blob was first noticed by residents near the Rialto Bridge on Sunday morning local time and grew slowly through the day.
Former U.S. State Department and nuclear regulatory officials on Tuesday urged the U.S. Energy Department to reconsider a plan to use bomb-grade uranium in a nuclear power experiment, saying that its use could encourage such tests in other countries. The Energy Department and two companies aim to share costs on the Molten Chloride Reactor Experiment (MCRE) at the Idaho National Laboratory and use more than 1,322 pounds (600 kg) of fuel containing 93% enriched uranium. Bill Gates-backed company TerraPower LLC, the utility Southern Co and the department hope the six-month experiment will lead to breakthroughs in reactors that could help reduce pollution linked to climate change.
But the 54-second clip shared by the @TrumpWarRoom account ― posted after Trump's unhinged, all-caps rant all about himself to mark the day on his Truth Social platform ― prompted a deluge of critical comments. Twitter users highlighted the many insulting and offensive things the former president has said about veterans and military families. They also brought up Trump's multiple deferments to avoid combat in the Vietnam War, and his description of American war dead as “losers” and “suckers.
When he stepped up to the witness stand last week, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Jaime Juarez told the court about his first inking party — the day he got his Compton station tattoo. On Thursday afternoon, while testifying in a civil trial, Juarez pushed up a pant leg to reveal that tattoo: a helmet-wearing skeleton gripping a rifle. The rare and candid disclosure came in a case centered on the secretive world of deputy gangs, reports of which have plagued the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for half a century and led to an array of investigations, studies and legal settlements.
Evangelisto Ramos walked out of a New Orleans courthouse and away from a life sentence accompanying a 10-2 jury conviction, thanks in large part to the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision bearing his name. Ramos v. Louisiana outlawed nonunanimous jury convictions as unconstitutional, with justices on the 6-3 majority acknowledging the practice as a vestige of racism from the era of “Jim Crow” laws enforcing racial segregation. The 2020 ruling meant a new trial for Ramos, who was acquitted in March — this time by a unanimous jury — after defense lawyers highlighted weakness in the investigation leading to his prosecution.
