John Lennon and Paul McCartney‘s sons are all grown up - and look just like their famous fathers. Beatles fans went nuts on Instagram after Sean Ono Lennon posted a photo with James McCartney on Monday. “Peekaboo…” Sean wrote alongside the picture. Like their fathers, both Sean, 42, and James, 40, are musicians. “If you guys have some music to play we would be glad to listen!” one fan commented. Another added, “A second generation of music? They have the genes.” The late John Lennon was the father of two sons: his oldest, Julian, with his first wife Cynthia, and Sean, who he had with second wife Yoko Ono. James is Paul’s only son. He also has four daughters, three from his marriage to Linda McCartney

A mother and her 10-year-old son went to their local library, and it was a trip neither will forget any time soon. According to an arrest report from the Ocoee Police Department, on Aug. 1 the boy went to use the restroom at the West Oaks Library. While standing in a locked stall, he said he saw a cellphone peering over the divider. He ran out quickly to report the incident to his mother, who stood outside the bathroom waiting for the suspect to emerge. She told cops she confronted the man, who exited the library, and then reported him to library staff. The branch manager tried to track down the suspect, who drove away in his older model Honda Accord. Police were summoned. In surveillance video,
Kevin de Leon wants Dianne Feinstein to shut down the Senate to stop Judge Kavanaugh's nomination. Ummm, she can't...
As he challenges incumbent Democrat Dianne Feinstein for a seat in the U.S. Senate, state Sen. Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles) has made resisting the Trump administration a centerpiece of his campaign. A good illustration is his take-no-prisoners approach to President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. Feinstein isn’t doing enough to try to block the appointment, De Leon says, arguing that Democrats should go so far as to shut down the Senate. OK, so what’s the endgame there? As members of the minority party, the only tools at Senate Democrats’ disposal where nominees are concerned are dilatory ones. They can use the filibuster to kill most types of legislation, but not nominations

If you're on a drug for high blood pressure or heart failure, it's pretty likely that you're doing your best to keep your body in working order. However, some patients with heart issues have recently found themselves trading one life-threatening condition with the risk of another. An FDA investigation has triggered a recall of over 50 different medications which contain a drug that has now been linked to cancers. N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is formally classified as a carcinogen by the FDA, meaning that it has the potential to cause cancers to form, and it was found in 55 different medications under the name valsartan, which is prescribed for patients with heart failure and blood pressure issues. The recall list is long, covering valsartan prescriptions in a number of different dosages and amounts. A number of different companies produce the drug, and now they're being forced to yank them from pharmacy shelves. The FDA notes that the carcinogen's presence in the drug is being considered an "impurity," meaning that not all valsartan prescriptions are affected by the recall. Those which do not contain the NDMA impurity are still considered safe, according to the FDA. FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb provided the following statement in the FDA's bulletin : The FDA is committed to maintaining our gold standard for safety and efficacy. That includes our efforts to ensure the quality of drugs and the safe manner in which they’re manufactured. When we identify lapses in the quality of drugs and problems with their manufacturing that have the potential to create risks to patients, we’re committed to taking swift action to alert the public and help facilitate the removal of the products from the market. As we seek the removal of certain drug products today, our drug shortages team is also working hard to ensure patients’ therapeutic needs are met in the United States with an adequate supply of unaffected medications. If you need to check whether your medication is part of the recall, you can do so via the list ( PDF ) provided by the FDA.

With help from NASA astronaut, treasure hunter says he may have found alien space ship off Florida's coast
Is there a giant alien spaceship sitting on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean off Florida’s east coast? Treasure hunter Darrell Miklos thinks so. And so, apparently, may former NASA astronaut Gordon Cooper. Miklos hosts “Cooper’s Treasure,” a reality show on Discovery channel. The show is based on searching for shipwrecks and other unusual items on Earth that Cooper saw from space and charted on maps he made. Miklos told the Daily Mail newspaper that while filming an episode of his TV show in the Bahamas he came across something he thinks is from another world. “I was trying to identify shipwreck material based on one of the anomaly readings on Gordon's charts when I noticed something that stuck

MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. - Do you even lift, bro? Marine PT studs are finally about to get some recognition outside the gym, as service leaders begin handing out individual and unit-level awards to the fittest leathernecks around. Commandant Gen.
