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.

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.

But the agreement to put the brakes on the debt limit until January 2025 — which still needs to be approved by Congress — comes with plenty of caveats and cuts to spending. Here's what it covers — and most importantly, what it claws back.

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.
There are early signs that Chick-fil-A could become the latest target of a potential boycott campaign. Fresh off of their successful boycotts against Bud Light and Target, some of the louder voices on the far-right side of social media are now targeting Chick-fil-A, the conservative-leaning fast food chain that is famously closed on Sundays in honor of the Christian day of rest. Twitter user Joey Mannarino pointed out in a tweet on May 30 that Chick-fil-A could be added to the boycott list, as the company has "just hired a VP of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion".

STORY: The men clad in traditional ultra-Orthodox garb came to this ultra-Orthodox town for the funeral of Rabbi Gershon Edelstein, a spiritual leader of the United Torah Judaism party which is part of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition. Police closed off streets in and around Bnei Brak, including part of a highway to regular traffic to accommodate fleets of busses ferrying mourners to the city. Edelstein was born in Russia, near the border with Belarus, and immigrated to what was then British-ruled Palestine in 1934.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) sent out a Memorial Day message on Twitter ― but it was undermined by a very visible mistake. Greene's message contained a version of the U.S. flag with just 18 stars.
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.
A California appeals court said Tuesday that Leslie Van Houten, who participated in two killings at the direction of cult leader Charles Manson in 1969, should be released from prison on parole. The appellate court's ruling reverses an earlier decision by Gov. Gavin Newsom, who rejected parole for Van Houten in 2020. All of those recommendations were rejected by either Newsom or former California Gov. Jerry Brown.

The BLM Global Network Foundation, the movement's primary nonprofit, raised roughly $87 million in contributions between mid-2020 to mid-2022. It most recently disbursed $4.5 million in grants to groups such as the Love Not Blood Campaign, Center for Black Power, Anti-Police Terror Project and the Trans Justice Housing Project, its tax forms show.
I don't want to live life anymore without confessing, he said while sitting in an interview room at police headquarters.

What Jon didn't know was that one of the people lockdown would condemn to death would be him. How could he possibly have known? Jon was 32, a music journalist turned PR who had recently married Nikki, his childhood sweetheart.
Donald Trump predictably made Memorial Day all about himself on Monday. The former president began a post on his Truth Social platform innocuously enough when he wished a “happy Memorial Day to all.” Trump was similarly self-indulgent on 2018's Memorial Day when he suggested fallen soldiers “would be very happy” about the state of the economy under his administration.
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.

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.
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.
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.

The man stormed the stage of the Miss Gay Mato Grosso pageant, snatching the decorative headwear just as officials were placing it on winner Emannuelly Belini's head.

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.
