It culminated in a standoff that the then-21-year-old livestreamed on Facebook, showing Aldrich in tactical gear inside the mother's home and threatening officers outside — “If they breach, I'm a f----ing blow it to holy hell!” — before finally surrendering.
Men have been steadily clocking out of the American workforce since pre-pandemic times — even now despite there being millions of job openings and an uncertain economic climate. While the U.S. labor market remains incredibly tight — with the economy adding another 263,000 jobs in November — around 7 million “prime age” men between the ages of 25 and 54 are reportedly sitting it out. They are affirmatively not looking for work.
During the August 2020 charter, they came across a commercial fishing longline — a controversial piece of angling gear consisting of sometimes up to several miles of monofilament line, weights and hooks, designed with the purpose of snagging dozens of fish at a time. The men, boat captain John R. Moore Jr., 56, and mate Tanner Mansell, 29, gathered up the three miles of line and freed 19 sharks and a Goliath grouper, a state-protected species. The three-hour effort was done with the help of their charter passengers, telling them the line was an abandoned “ghost set” of line, U.S. Attorney's Office prosecutors said.

Russia retaliated in brutal fashion this week after drone strikes targeted three airfields — including two deep inside its territory. The last strike came Tuesday morning, against a Russian airport just across the border from Ukraine, but it was preceded by two others on Monday that saw drones penetrate hundreds of miles into Russia. The first strikes — which Ukraine has not claimed responsibility for, vaguely calling it karma for Russia's invasion and air assault that began in February — drew a new barrage of missiles from Russian forces, taking aim at dozens of targets in Ukraine.

Tuesday's conviction of the Trump Organization on charges of financial impropriety, coupled with the loss by former President Donald Trump's candidate in the Georgia Senate runoff, marked one of the worst days for Trump since he announced his presidential candidacy roughly three weeks ago. In New York, the jury that heard the case brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg deliberated over two days before returning guilty verdicts on all 17 counts related to a tax-fraud scheme, a sweeping condemnation of the company that bears Trump's name. A lawyer for the company said officials will appeal the verdict, which was due in part to testimony from its longtime chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, who pleaded guilty to failing to pay taxes on company perks.
