Bethany Stephens’ father went looking for his daughter after he hadn’t seen her in over a day. So he decided to seek her out in a wooded area in Goochland, Virginia, where the 22-year-old often took her two pit bulls out for a stroll, according to Richmond.com. That’s when he said he found the two dogs “guarding” the body of his daughter, who police say was mauled and killed by the pets. He called 911 on Thursday night, and officers arrived just over an hour later, WTVR reported. It was a scene that Sheriff Jim Agnew said he likely won’t forget. “It was an absolutely grisly mauling,” he said, according to WTVR. “In my 40 years of law enforcement I've never seen anything quite like it. I hope
A former “Today” staffer has come forward to describe what she called a consensual affair with then-host Matt Lauer in 2000.
The top American and Russian fighter jets this week had their first run-in in the skies above Syria, and the incident favored the Russian jet if combat were to break out. The US's F-22 doesn't visibly store weapons, and it relies on stealth, so coming face to face with an advanced Russian fighter puts it at a disadvantage. Two US F-22 stealth fighter jets intercepted Russian Su-25 and Su-35 jets that crossed into the US's area of operation over Syria on Wednesday, and it highlights a downside to the US's top fighter jets. While the F-35 has been built as a flying quarterback that can dogfight, bomb ground targets, gather intelligence, or conduct surveillance, the F-22 specializes in one thing: air-to-air combat.
After a year in which a woman ran for president of the United States, won the popular vote, but lost the election to a man who is accused by 16 women of sexual misconduct , American culture appears to now be fully submerged in a fourth wave of feminism - so much so that the dictionary of record, Merriam-Webster, just designated “feminism” as its latest word of the year. And if 2017 was the year of feminism, fashion followed suit with the year of the slogan T-shirt, meant to inspire, empower, and of course, drive sales. There were those tees created at local screen print shops and donned during the Women’s March on Washington or sold on Etsy, alongside high-priced designer shirts. But, many wondered: To what end? In a world where the citizen-consumer becomes citizen-advertiser , some T-shirt sales benefited causes not quite on the same wavelength as Trump’s America. “Nevertheless, she persisted” T-shirts, inspired by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s comments against Sen. Elizabeth Warren, raised at least $300,000 for Planned Parenthood; Dior pledged a percentage of sales of its “We Should All Be Feminists” tees, which retailed for a little more than $700, to Rihanna’s nonprofit, the Clara Lionel Foundation; and after Robert Geller wore a T-shirt that said “immigrant” during his 2017 fall-winter runway show, the German-born designer mass-produced the garment and pledged to donate its sales to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). And the support for groups like the ACLU didn’t end after the Women’s March in January. To cap the year, the organization hosted a dinner at the international art fair Art Basel Miami Beach to promote - you guessed it - collaborative designer T-shirts from Everlane, Opening Ceremony, and Public School, the proceeds of which were donated to the ACLU. Aside from fundraising, is there any real point to wearing your politics on your sleeve? “You can empower and encourage others to speak up or become more active as well,” Kristina Haugland, the Le Vine associate curator of costume and textiles at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, told Allure. And what’s fashion, after all, if not self-expression?
Bill O’Reilly claimed vindication Friday after a report from The Hill that attorney Lisa Bloom had solicited wealthy donors and tabloid media to pay women who agreed to come forward to accuse Donald Trump of sexual misconduct.
A Canadian man says he’s broke after the United Parcel Service lost track of his inheritance. The intended $846,000 delivery was a bank draft from TD Canada Trust, which still hasn’t refunded the lost fortune 10 months later. “It was a total surprise,” Lorette Taylor told CBC News.
ESPN, in response to a Boston Globe story about the hostile treatment of women at the sports network, released portions of text messages Friday morning between longtime anchor John Buccigross and Adrienne Lawrence, a former employee who filed a sexual harassment complaint this summer. The Globe is releasing the full text message exchange as well as the complaint and ESPN’s response that was filed with the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities. In her complaint, Lawrence accused John Buccigross, a longtime “SportsCenter” anchor whom she viewed as a mentor, of sending unsolicited shirtless photographs of himself and spreading rumors. Lawrence repeatedly complained to ESPN officials
