A woman was almost three times over the alcohol limit when her car crashed into a mother of six on her way home from visiting her premature newborn twins in hospital, investigators said. Ms Evans was pronounced dead at the scene, the force said in a statement on Facebook. “Katie leaves behind her husband Jacob Evans, her children Spencer (12), Travis (11), Nathaniel (9), Gideon (2) and her premie twin girls Hannah and Sarah,” Ms Evans’ friend Natalie Mortensen wrote on a fundraising page has been set up for the victim’s family.

When researchers are searching for remnants of structures and settlements constructed by ancient peoples they typically focus on areas that are hospitable to human life. A new discovery in Saudi Arabia goes firmly against that notion, with archaeologists revealing the existence of hundreds of stone "gates" situated in and around ancient lava domes, in an area that is little more than a hellish landscape devoid of vegetation and water. The structures, which measure anywhere from 40 feet to nearly 1,700 feet in length, are crude in their construction, built of rough rocks that have withstood thousands of years of wear and tear. What's most interesting is that it appears that the lava fields these structures were built upon was still active at the time, with hardened lava appearing to have flowed over some of the gates. "Gates are found almost exclusively in bleak, inhospitable lava fields with scant water or vegetation, places seemingly amongst the most unwelcoming to our species," David Kennedy of the Western University of Australia, who led the research, wrote. Kennedy noted that the structures "appear to be the oldest man-made structures in the landscape," and that at the moment "no obvious explanation of their purpose can be discerned." The discovery was made using satellite imagery, and the researchers used their birds-eye view to identify nearly 400 of the gates in the same area. Along with the odd walls, other clearly manmade structures were spotted including what appear to be animal traps and wheel-shaped objects that are yet to be identified. The current best guess as to the age of the construction is somewhere in the neighborhood of 9,000 years. The next step for researchers is launching some kind of expedition to investigate the site and perhaps come up with some kind of an explanation as to why the structures exist and what they were used for. It's an incredible discovery, but the structures - and their precarious location - are so mysterious that there's bound to be an even greater story waiting to be told.
DEAR ABBY: I will soon be married 48 years, but it is not much of a marriage. There is no sex, no touching, no kind and compassionate words, only bickering and arguing. I can’t figure out why I’m still here. I have thought about leaving many times. I have written three books, and because of it, my husband has ridiculed me. I have also owned and operated two businesses. I’m active in the community, which he resents. He is an introvert, while I am an extrovert. He no longer accompanies me to activities, but when he did, he would make snide remarks to people who stopped to chat with us. So I no longer invite him. Help me, please! - SAD, LONELY WIFE DEAR WIFE: I will try. If you are asking my permission
This collection of photographs shows an array of amazing and rare white animals. The rarity of the white animal is just one reason these photographs are so magical - however it is the range of animals that really demonstrate the rarity. Some, such as the white elephant, taken by Anatoly Berman, can be seen standing with a completely white body, whereas Alba - the white orangutan, from Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, can be seen with piercing blue eyes. Alongside the rarities is a white puffin, taken by Mike Bodman, who’s dazzling white breast contradicts its signature orange beak. However, closer to home than the more exotic animals, the crisp white deer was spotted in London’s Richmond Park by photographer Mark Bridger.

Fox News ran a story on Oct. 8 about a decorated Vietnam War Navy SEAL and glass artist who created an enormous presidential glass seal he hoped to give to President Trump. On Thursday, 11 days later, the network retracted the story after being told the Trump supporter never served in the SEALs or in Vietnam, much less earned commendations for his service. In the segment, John Garafalo said he served in the Vietnam War with the U.S. Navy SEAL team. Fox News reported that he also received two Purple Hearts and about two dozen other medals for his service. The man’s claimed record turned out to be a fabrication. It was first discovered by former Navy SEALs. Both these SEALs and family members of
