The Baby of a Mother Who Refused Chemo to Give Birth Has Died
(DETROIT) — The baby born of a Michigan woman who chose to forgo chemotherapy to give birth to the child has died, a relative said Thursday. Sonya Nelson said her niece, Life Lynn DeKlyen, died Wednesday evening at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor. Life’s mother, Carrie DeKlyen, died Sept. 9, three days after giving birth to her sixth child. Relatives said Life had been doing better than expected after being born prematurely at 1 pound, 4 ounces (567 grams). Nelson told The Associated Press the baby had good and bad days at the hospital, but “took a turn for the worse” this week. &ld...

President Trump Just Hit North Korea With New Sanctions
(NEW YORK) — U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday the United States will add more sanctions against North Korea, while U.S. allies have called for enforcing existing international sanctions as the best way to get Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons program. The sanctions are not expected to further target oil, a senior Trump administration official told Reuters. Tensions have risen over North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile tests, despite intense pressure from world powers. The U.N. Security Council has unanimously imposed nine rounds of sanctions on North Korea since 2006, the latest earlier...

5 Lottery Winners Who Got in Trouble With the Law
One of New Jersey’s richest Powerball winners was charged Wednesday with sexually assaulting a child, prosecutors said, landing him on a growing list of lottery winners who have either befallen misfortune or been accused of a crime. Pedro Quezada, 49, won $338 million — one of the state’s biggest Powerball jackpots in history — in 2013. He was arrested Wednesday and charged with sexually assaulting a young girl for about three years when the child was between 11 and 14 years old, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes said in a statement. The alleged crimes took place before Quezada won the lotter...

Game of Thrones ‘ Melisandre Just Shared an Epic Behind-the-Scenes Photo
The Game of Thrones‘ scene in which Melisandre gave birth to a murderous shadow demon is one of the show’s most memorable moments. But for Carice van Houten — who plays the Red Priestess — it seems safe to assume that delivering her first real child was a more momentous occasion. The 41-year-old actor welcomed her son Monte with her husband, Guy Pearce, in August 2016 — just six weeks before she was due back to film the seventh season of Thrones. But as is evidenced by the behind-scenes photo she shared on Twitter Wednesday, van Houten tried to be a good sport about it. “Game of Thrones ...

It’s a fact well acknowledged that Jake Gyllenhaal does not want to discuss his former flame and maple latte enthusiast Taylor Swift, but you know what topic he will avidly want to discuss?

In an interview with People to promote his new movie Stronger, in which he plays Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman who wrote the memoir of the same name, Gyllenhaal voiced his affinity for fatherhood and a family. “I want to continue becoming more of an adult than I already am,” Gyllenhaal said. “Hopefully with a family of my own.” He also shared that he’s ...

The Inventor of Android On the Future of Smartphones and Beyond
When Andy Rubin sold his startup Android to Google in 2005, the tech landscape looked vastly different. Our phones had clunky keypads, barely functional cameras, and mini screens that didn’t support touch input. They also couldn’t run the same apps. It’s hard to remember what that felt like in a world where Android-powered mobile devices are everywhere, each one built on the same software foundation. More than a decade later, Rubin is trying to crack the next big platform war that’s brewing in the consumer tech space. “There were so many frickin’ operating systems for phones,” Rubi...

Are E-Cigs Bad For Your Heart?
Scientists are still trying to determine the health effects of e-cigarettes, and until now, they have focused their attention on the addictive properties of nicotine and the potentially cancer-causing agents in the vapors the devices emit. But in a small new study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, researchers document another growing health concern of e-cigs: that they may have negative effects on the heart.

Ron Howard ’s Cryptic Han Solo Movie Clue Is Keeping the Internet Busy With Theories
Ron Howard has Star Wars fans playing an intensely geeky guessing game this week. The director, who took over the project after Phil Lord and Chris Miller stepped down, sent out a tweet from the set of the Han Solo movie he is working on with a one-word caption that sent fans into a head-scratching frenzy. The tweet simply read “Spicey” and that is either a nod to a former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer guest appearance in the film, as part of his normalization tour after this week’s Emmy Awards—or perhaps it’s something much more literal. https://twitter.com/RealRonHoward/status/910...

And people are eating it up: Nielsen says sales of pumpkin-flavored items have reached a new high, bringing in $414 million in the U.S. between the end of July 2016 and the end of July 2017 — up from $286 million over that same period of time...

Man Who Murdered His Kids While Their Mother Helplessly Listened Is Set to Be Executed
(AUSTIN, Texas)— An appeals court has lifted a stay of execution for a Dallas man convicted of fatally shooting his two young daughters 16 years ago while their mother listened helplessly over the phone. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled Wednesday that 62-year-old John Battaglia is competent to be executed. The appeals court is sending the case to the trial court to set an execution date. The appeals court issued a stay in December to review whether Battaglia was mentally competent to be put to death. His attorney had appealed a judge’s ruling that he was mentally competent for execution. Battaglia was ...

Are Hotels Spying On You? Here ’s the Truth
If you’ve ever walked into a hotel room and wondered if you’re being watched, you’re not alone. Whether it’s an idle question or a gnawing paranoia, many Americans have considered whether hotels are spying on their guests in the digital age. The answer is generally no, since that would violate laws in more than a dozen states. But the issue is complicated on a federal level, and security experts also say rogue hotel employees could easily hide small cameras inside devices, like clocks and lamps. “Assuming someone has access to the room before and after the customer uses it, I think it’s ...

Why Playing a Sport Should Be Your New Workout
People who play a sport are more likely to stay healthy and fit as they age, according to a new study published in BMJ Open, compared to those who do other types of physical activity. Finding a sport you love early in life—and playing it often—may be the key to staying active in your 70s, 80s and beyond. The transition from middle age to old age is often one of slowing down. Retirement or injuries, for example, can lead to major life changes and affect the amount of physical activity a person gets on a regular basis. Yet staying active is vital to preserving mental and physical health—and the ability to l...

When the first edition of The Hobbit: or, There And Back Again was first published — 80 years ago, on Sept. 21, 1937 — C.S. Lewis famously called the book a “marvellous” classic-in-the-making, and the New York Times called it “freshly original and delightfully imaginative.” TIME Magazine, meanwhile, called it…nothing. The book did not receive a review in the magazine’s pages in 1937, nor when the first U.S. edition arrived the following year. That omission, while an obvious oversight in retrospect, is also a telling detail in the history of J.R.R. Tolkien’s first Middl...

Dirty towels can carry a huge variety of microbes, and they’ve even been linked to spreading infectious disease.

Towels are such great bacteria traps because every time you use a towel, you transfer your natural skin bacteria, and any other germs you’re carrying, onto their surface.
