  • US admiral stands ready to obey a Trump nuclear strike order

    The U.S. Pacific Fleet commander said Thursday he would launch a nuclear strike against China next week if President Donald Trump ordered it, and warned against the military ever shifting its allegiance from its commander in chief. Adm. Scott Swift was addressing an Australian National University security conference following a major joint U.S.- Australian military exercise off the Australian coast. The drills were monitored by a Chinese intelligence-gathering ship off northeast Australia.

  • Louis Trumanti’s Wife Called 911 to Say He Was Having a Heart Attack. The Police Came and Broke His Back.

    When Louis Tramunti’s wife called 911, she wanted EMTs to save her husband’s life after a heart attack. Instead, two policemen threw him to the floor and broke his back. It was just one of those things; didn’t even make the papers.

  • We tried fried chicken from 4 fast-food chains - and the winner was clear

    The INSIDER Summary: We tried fried chicken from Popeyes, Church's, Chick-fil-A, and KFC to see which makes it the best. KFC was the clear loser - its chicken was dry, and its batter was bland. Chick-fil-A came in third place because while we loved the batter's flavor and seasoning, the chicken didn't taste as authentic because the chain doesn't offer meat on the bone. Church's came in second place. The meat was juicy and tender, but its batter wasn't as flavorful as Popeyes, which came in first place. A good piece of fried chicken has to achieve the difficult balance of being crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Not all restaurants get it right - which is why we set out to find which

  • Walmart cashier’s act of kindness leaves foster parent in tears

    It was late on a Friday night and Nicholas Tate was nearing the end of his shift at Walmart when the line at his checkout counter started grow. The 20-year-old cashier from Newcastle, Oklahoma, patiently waited as each customer placed their items on the conveyor belt. A woman surrounded by three children apologized as she stepped up to the counter. "Is it one of those days?" Tate asked, smiling as kids bounced around behind her. The woman explained she was fostering a baby and had to use WIC, part of a federal program that provides assistance for low-income families with children, to pay for some of the items.
