• ‘I feel like I was the victim’: Former high school teacher blames student for seducing her

    She was a 24-year-old substitute teacher. He was a 17-year-old high school student. And over the course of an illicit, months-long relationship during the 2015-2016 school year in Cedar Rapids, she admits, the pair had sex “hundreds of times.” Mary Beth Haglin was charged in July with sexual exploitation by a teacher. But now, Haglin claims that not only is she innocent of committing any crime, she’s actually the victim in the relationship. Haglin appeared on the “Dr. Phil” show this week and accused the student of hatching an elaborate plan of romantic seduction, then threatening to “burn her life down” if she ended the relationship. In recent months, Haglin claims, she’s been fired from her

  • Investigator Claims 'Ufo Wreckage' Is Evidence Aliens Visited The Earth 250,000 Years Ago

    The discovery of an ancient piece of aluminium is being hailed as evidence that aliens visited Earth 250,000 years ago. The mysterious hunk of metal was found in Romania during the 1970s, when the country was under communist rule. Now tests at a lab in Lausanne, Switzerland, have revealed that the strange fragment of metal is made up of 90 percent aluminium and is 250,000 years old. Aluminium was not produced by mankind until about 200 years ago, so the discovery of the large chunk that could be up to 250,000 years old is being held up as a sensational find. Gheorghe Cohal, the Deputy Director of the Romanian Ufologists Association, told local media: "Lab tests concluded it is an old UFO fragment

  • GOP senators aren’t happy that John McCain was probably caught telling the truth

    Dude, you weren’t supposed to say that out loud! On Monday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) confirmed one of Democrats’ worst fears. If Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wins the White House, but Republicans keep the Senate, the GOP “will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up.” If America wants to have a Supreme Court in five years, in other words, it better elect the same party to the White House and the Senate. Not long after McCain’s comment, however, a new talking point was born. McCain’s own spokesperson said McCain did not actually mean what he said. The senator will “thoroughly examine the record of any Supreme Court

  • Donald Trump's national political director 'steps back' from campaign

    With only 19 days left until the election, Donald Trump's national political director said he has decided to "take a step back from the campaign." In a statement to Politico, Jim Murphy said he has not resigned, but for "personal reasons" is taking a lesser role. Murphy is a longtime GOP operative who joined the Trump campaign in June, and has been establishing field programs in battleground states and serving as a point person between Trump and the RNC. Trump is behind in several key states, and some Republicans worry that in swing states, he doesn't have the same exposure as Hillary Clinton. Numerous Trump aides told Politico that in recent days, Murphy, a friend of Trump's former campaign

  • ‘I dropped to my knees': Minn. firefighter responds to a fatal crash, finds his son’s body

    When he received the call, Randy Peterson was immediately gripped by the fear only a parent can know. The Minnesota man gives his free time to be a volunteer firefighter with the Ada Fire Department. So when his pager went off on Sunday night, it should have felt like any other call. There had been a car crash in Borup, a nearby town, and one of the cars had caught fire. Peterson was needed. He was a father with a strict routine. Each time his pager buzzed, he called to check on his three children, fearing the worst. Normally, they pick up and reassure him, before he reaches the scene. This time, though, his 16-year-old son Carter didn’t answer. Peterson knew the teenager had been out with his

  • Jennifer Garner, Devoted Mom, Schleps Her Daughter's School Project in a Sexy Dress

    Jennifer Garner took one for the team (the team being the Garner-Affleck family) when she lugged her daughter Seraphina's school project down the street in LA on Thursday. The actress stayed chic in a navy dress and heels while carrying the giant box, which was adorably covered in glitter and had a shoe taped to it. It also read in bright letters "The Time Machine by Sera" - we can't help but wonder if the 7-year-old got help from her famous parents on the assignment. Jennifer's devotion to her kids has been evident in her recent outings; she and estranged husband Ben Affleck linked up for their little ones' first day of school in September, and days later she was spotted schlepping backpacks

  • ‘I didn’t want to see them suffering’: Mother confesses to suffocating her three young children

    Three-month-old Niall was the first to die, on July 22, 2014. His brother, 4-year-old Gavin, died nine months later, on April 6, 2015. Noah was next: He was born just after Gavin’s death - and died on Aug. 18, 2015. The mother of all three children, Brittany Pilkington, confessed to killing them over a 13-month period, Ohio prosecutors say. The same day her third son died, the 24-year-old mother from Bellefontaine told police that she put a blanket over all three of the children’s faces and placed her hand over their noses and mouths. Pilkington’s videotaped confession was played in court this week. Her attorneys argued that the confession was coerced and, therefore, unconstitutional; it shouldn’t

  • The internet is enamored with George H.W. Bush's 1993 letter to Bill Clinton

    In the midst of the chaotic lead-up to November's election, a 1993 letter from outgoing President George H.W. Bush to incoming President Bill Clinton has the internet nostalgic for political seasons past. Bush penned the letter on Jan. 20, 1993, the day of Clinton's first inauguration. The previous November, he'd failed to secure a second term in office. SEE ALSO: So that's 3 presidential debates, 0 climate change questions Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton posted the letter to Instagram in June: You may have noticed a letter that went viral on the internet this week. The letter is from George H.W. Bush’s presidential library. I hadn’t read it in a long time, until yesterday. It moved me to tears, just like it did all those years ago. It’s the letter that President Bush left in the Oval Office for my husband, back in January of 1993. They had just fought a fierce campaign. Bill won, President Bush lost. In a democracy, that’s how it goes. But when Bill walked into that office for the very first time as President, that note was waiting for him. It had some good advice about staying focused on what mattered, despite the critics. It wished him happiness. And it concluded with these words: “You will be our President when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well. Your success is now our country’s success. And I am rooting hard for you. George.” That’s the America we love. That is what we cherish and expect. A photo posted by Hillary Clinton (@hillaryclinton) on Jun 14, 2016 at 4:25pm PDT After wishing Bill "great happiness" in the White House, Bush writes: "Your success is now our country's success. And I am rooting hard for you." Those sharing the 1993 letter invoke Bush's words as an example of losing with dignity.  In contrast, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made headlines during Wednesday's debate when he declared that he may not accept the results of November's election should Clinton win. In a speech on Thursday, he followed up on that statement: He will accept the results of the election if he's the winner .

  • 9 states are voting on marijuana - here are the issues

    Yes, looking beyond the Trump/Clinton squabble-fest, you will see that there are marijuana-related issues on the ballot in nine states, five will vote on out-and-out legalization: Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada, while four, Arkansas, Florida, Montana and North Dakota, are looking to make medical marijuana legal to one degree or another. First note that over 50% of Americans now support some form of legalization. So pot isn’t a Democratic ‘yes,’ and Republican ‘no,’ issue anymore. It’s probably the case that more people who are in favor of legalization are more passionate about the issue than those opposed, meaning its likely that more pro voters will get off their duff-and remember to vote pro-weed-than those opposed.

  • Can my family refuse inheritance from my abusive former husband?

    Dear Moneyologist, Quite a few of the people who ask you for advice are concerned about receiving their fair share of an inheritance. We (my daughters and I) have the exact opposite problem - we’re concerned that we will receive an inheritance that we don’t really want. I divorced my husband 15 years ago because of child abuse he perpetrated on our daughters. I received sole custody of my then-minor daughters - he lost all custody and visitation because of the abuse. I got a job over 1,000 miles away from my ex, refusing to have anything to do with him. There was no child support, as my income was larger - I was able to independently financially provide for my daughters - and we started our lives

"Nothing make-believe about it," said Larethia Haddon, the 56-year-old Detroit native behind the display. "This is going on every day in real life." The project is Haddon's protest against the violence and racial injustice afflicting her country. At her doorstep is a dummy stained blood-red with a sign that says "My hands were up", referring to recent cases of police officers killing unarmed black men.  Below her window, a Frankenstein-like figure wields a fake knife and a sign
