A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled Wednesday that a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the father of a man shot and killed by Kyle Rittenhouse during a protest in 2020 can proceed against Rittenhouse, police officers and others. The father of Anthony Huber, one of two men shot and killed by Rittenhouse, filed the lawsuit in 2021, accusing officers of allowing for a dangerous situation that violated his son's constitutional rights and resulted in his death. Anthony Huber's father, John Huber, also alleged that Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time of the shootings, conspired with law enforcement to cause harm to protestors.
Doctors are warning of a dangerous fungal illness rapidly spreading across the country, especially affecting those living or visiting the California and Arizona areas. If you think it sounds like something from the cutting room floor of "The Last of Us" series, where a parasitic fungal infection devastates mankind, there are some very base-level similarities. Valley fever (also called coccidioidomycosis or "cocci") is a significant cause of pneumonia, said Dr. Brad Perkins, chief medical officer at Karius, a company that provides advanced diagnostics for infectious diseases.

The couple were flying out of Ben Gurion International Airport and heading to Brussels, Belgium, on a RyanAir flight, CNN reports.

Appearing before a federal judge after pleading guilty to a felony charge in the deadly Capitol riot, former West Virginia lawmaker Derrick Evans expressed remorse for letting down his family and his community, saying he made a “crucial mistake." Less than a year later, Evans is portraying himself as a victim of a politically motivated prosecution as he runs to serve in the same building he stormed on Jan. 6, 2021.

Jimmy Kimmel sarcastically noted that conspiracy theorist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is “hard at work” now that she's sitting on committees in the Republican-controlled U.S. House. Case in point: Her question this week to U.S. Comptroller General Gene Dodaro during a hearing on COVID-19 spending and potential fraud in the use of those funds. Greene, a close ally of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) who last year spoke at a white nationalist conference, asked about “drag queen story hour” events, a common target of right-wing ire.

The United States has answered President Volodymyr Zelenskiy's plea for rockets that can strike deep behind the front lines of the nearly year-long conflict with Russia. Now Russian forces will need to adapt or face potentially catastrophic losses. The new weapon, the Ground Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB), will allow Ukraine's military to hit targets at twice the distance reachable by the rockets it now fires from the U.S.-supplied High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS).
The construction of a Chinese-owned corn mill in North Dakota will likely be halted after the U.S. Air Force flagged it as a “significant threat to national security.” Fufeng Group, an MSG and xanthan gum manufacturer based in Shandong province, China, previously bought 370 acres of farmland in Grand Forks through its American subsidiary. The city council approved the company's $700 million proposal to build the mill last year, citing economic development success.
Just as retiring comfortably means different things to different people, it also presents almost unlimited financial scenarios: taking out a reverse mortgage, selling off possessions, moving to a place where the cost of living is cheap. Consider taking these three steps as you make an active stab at passive income. A person who's paid off their modest mortgage and grows their own veggies in a small town may feel far more at ease than the city dweller who still has a raft of high monthly expenses that forgot to read the retirement memo.

The animal, which looks like a smaller, slimmer version of a raccoon, is so secretive several people wrote that they didn't even know there were ringtails in Utah.
A Los Angeles County police department is facing intense criticism this week after a video surfaced on social media of two officers fatally shooting a double amputee moving away from them. The short video showed the 36-year-old Black man, Anthony Lowe Jr., missing the bottom halves of both legs, holding a knife but leaving his wheelchair and shuffling away from the officers. Jeffrey Fagan, a Columbia University law professor who is an expert on policing, told Yahoo News in an email that the details of the case call into question whether the use of lethal force was warranted.
Less than 12 hours before Alex Murdaugh's wife and son were shot dead in 2021, the chief financial officer of the South Carolina law firm where he worked confronted him about a huge sum of money that was missing from the company's accounts. “He gave me a very dirty look,” Jeanne Seckinger, the CFO, testified at Murdaugh's murder trial in the Colleton County courthouse on Thursday. In the days prior, Seckinger had grown suspicious about the $792,000 in fees that her staff could not locate, which Murdaugh had assured her was sitting in an accessible account.
Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton jokingly took supporters behind the scenes of one of the most infamous debate moments of the 2016 campaign. All three debates were marked by frequent outbursts from former President Donald Trump, but the second was particularly unusual as there were no lecterns and the candidates roamed the stage. That led to some odd body language ― as well as strange photos that quickly turned into memes.
The “micro bikini” from Kim Kardashian's SKIMS collection is taking a major beating on TikTok this week after one woman brilliantly illustrated just how impossibly tiny it really is. According to TikTok user @bbysarita's post, the barely-there bikini set leaves very little to the imagination — and might as well be like walking naked on the beach. “If you've been eyeing the SKIMS micro bikini and wondering about the size, these are tortilla chips for scale,” she says in the now-viral TikTok.
