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).
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.
Nikki Haley—former South Carolina governor and United Nations ambassador—is set to announce her intentions to run for president later this month. Barring any other last-minute eager beavers, Haley will be former President Donald Trump's first official challenger for the 2024 Republican nomination. Personally, I will always remember Haley for her steadfast belief that “women don't care about contraception.” When on The View in 2012, Haley made that bold statement to a room full of women who...seemed to disagree.
The debate was sparked once again on Jan. 11, when TikTok user @ericgoldie shared a short clip of an awkward interaction with a fellow passenger.

A U.S. government watchdog has issued a “deeply disturbing” fraud alert over the widespread use of “questionable” Social Security numbers (SSNs) to get pandemic loans. The Pandemic Response Accountability Committee (PRAC) found that 69,323 potentially fraudulent SSNs were used to obtain $5.4 billion from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program. The shocking revelation dropped just days before a hearing by the Republican-led House of Representatives Oversight Committee on fraudulent pandemic spending was set to begin.

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.

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.
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.” The city council approved the company's $700 million proposal to build the mill last year, citing economic development success. Although city officials initially supported the mill's construction in the hopes of generating jobs and tax revenue, Mayor Brandon Bochenski issued a statement on Tuesday asserting that the proposed mill “should be stopped.”

Putin was addressing a government meeting about restoring destroyed housing and infrastructure in regions of southwest Russia that border Ukraine.

Nearly one in five new cervical cancers diagnosed from 2009 to 2018 were in women 65 and older, according to a new UC Davis study. In general, if cervical cancer is diagnosed after it has spread to nearby tissues, organs or lymph nodes, the five-year relative survival rate is 59%, according to the National Cancer institute (NCI). Current screening guidelines from the American Cancer Society (ACS) recommend that individuals over 65 years old who have had cervical cancer screenings with normal results within the past 25 years and have tested negative in the 10-year period before age 65 should not be screened for cervical cancer.
A massive group of elk made its way from snowy mountains to a city and dashed alongside drivers on a Utah freeway for a second time in a week. A herd of about 40 elk was spotted Wednesday, Feb. 1, near the Interstate 215 and Interstate 80 interchange in Salt Lake City, the Utah Department of Transportation said on Twitter. The elk slowed drivers and caused delays as wildlife officials tried to herd them back to the mountains.
Florida's highway drivers might see an end to left-lane cruisers if a bill filed in the State Capitol Becomes law, but the bill is sparking some mixed reactions. “It's dangerous out there,” said West Virginia's John Baker, who was traveling to Bradenton.

The attorney for a former Minneapolis police officer who held back bystanders while his colleagues restrained a dying George Floyd said in court filings Tuesday that his client is innocent of criminal wrongdoing and should be acquitted on state charges of aiding and abetting murder and manslaughter. Tuesday was the deadline for prosecutors and defense attorneys to file final written arguments in the case of Thao, the last of the four former officers facing judgement in Floyd's killing. The state and federal cases against Derek Chauvin and the two other officers involved have largely been resolved, except for Chauvin's appeal of his murder conviction.
On July 1, the parole board denied Dunlap's request for a medical commutation, citing, in part, her 1976 first-degree murder conviction for fatally shooting a woman, and another conviction that year for her role in the group torture of a woman who was tied up, stabbed, shot and left for dead by the Detroit River. Dunlap had injected her with a "massive dose" of heroin laced with bleach that night, according to trial testimony, though the woman survived. Without elaborating, the parole board concluded Dunlap's request had no merit.
Members of a small New York community are furious at their local school for sharing a painfully tone-deaf social media post in which a dirty snowman was praised for its “diversity.” The Coxsackie-Athens Central School District posted an image on Tuesday of three elementary-aged students proudly standing behind a snowman they had built, local radio station WRRV reported. “I would like for Coxsackie-Athens Central School Districts to explain the meaning of this post?” a Facebook user from Hudson, New York, wrote.

Florida is threatening to ban the new AP African American Studies class over topics that are optional—and aren't even part of the curriculum, according to one of the lead architects of the course and a review of the official framework. On Feb. 1, the beginning of Black History Month, the College Board released the official framework for its first new AP course in nearly a decade, AP African American Studies. The move comes after the Florida Department of Education informed the College Board in January that it would not approve the curriculum unless certain changes are made.

The first is a new entry-level trim called Tech, the second is that the Tech trim lowers the entry price.
“Streaming is beginning to look an awful lot like the old-fashioned analogue TV it was supposed to replace.”
“Streaming isn’t going away … You’re still going to have a lot of choice for a long time.”

“Streaming is still a game of content … It’s not a matter of who’s spending more, it’s who’s spending smartly.”
“Streamers are retreating from any sort of creative risk in favor of humdrum, lowest-common-denominator shows.”
