LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Mexican man living in the U.S. illegally used his job as an Uber driver to target intoxicated young women and was charged Monday with raping, assaulting and robbing four victims, California prosecutors said.
Amazon's cashier-free store opens to the public 5 Hours Ago | 01:47 Amazon's newly opened automated grocery store boasts "Just Walk Out" technology that automatically charges shoppers for the items in their bags - but CNBC made it out with a freebie on the store's first official day. We packed a shopping bag full of cookies, snap peas and Amazon-branded drinkware - all of which appeared on a virtual receipt moments later. But a singe-serve Siggi's yogurt cup was noticeably dropped from the list. We promptly confessed to Amazon, and VP of Amazon Go Gianna Puerini in return told us not to worry about it, and said that it's an extremely rare error. "First and foremost, enjoy the yogurt on us,"

Dr. Ruth has interviewed thousands of people about their sex lives - and she says the most common relationship problem hasn't changed since the 1980s
Dr. Ruth Westheimer is a psychosexual therapist. She started the public-radio program "Sexually Speaking" in 1981. Westheimer said too many people have unreasonably high expectations for their relationship and their sex lives - and that hasn't changed since the 1980s. Westheimer emphasized the importance of being realistic, while still being hopeful. The world of sex and relationships has changed a lot since 1981. (See: Tinder.) And yet in some ways, it's stayed very much the same. I recently spoke with Dr. Ruth Westheimer - better known simply as Dr. Ruth - and she told me that as long as she's been a psychosexual therapist, people's expectations for their relationships have been too high.

When Randal Miles woke up from a nap during his flight from Paris to Los Angeles last week, he opened the interactive map on his seat-back screen to see how much longer he'd be in the air. But the number that caught his eye was the jet's speed. The Norwegian jet was flying at 770 mph-about 200 mph faster than its standard cruising velocity. “I thought, ‘Damn, this thing is hauling ass,’” Miles says. “I thought I was either sleepy or it was reading wrong.” Miles isn’t the only traveler who has gotten the giddy-up treatment in the past couple of weeks. On Thursday, a Norwegian 787 on the same route briefly hit an even faster 779 mph for part of its trip, with a tailwind of 224 mph. And on Friday,

FOR YEARS, the Tucson Unified School District kept a secret blacklist that included the names of about 1,400 former employees. The overwhelming majority of those employees were blacklisted for seemingly frivolous reasons: They had used all their vacation time, or had received a few poor performance evaluations, or had butted heads with a school administrator with access to the list. Many were teachers who had otherwise stellar careers in the district. I STARTED ON THE education beat for the Arizona Daily Star less than six months ago, and heard about the Tucson Unified School District blacklist almost immediately. A longtime school board member told me such a list existed, and had been used to
If you want to lose weight, what's on your plate is often more important than the minutes you spend in the gym. And if you want to see the most change, a 2015 study from Harvard says you should be cutting carbs, not fat. For the study, published in PLoS One, researchers from Harvard and Brigham and Women's Hospital reviewed 53 randomized trials of over 68,000 patients who had been assigned to either low-fat or low-carb diets. They found that low-carb diets were consistently better at helping patients lose weight than low-fat diets; the participants on the low-carb diets lost 2.5 pounds more than those on low-fat diets, with the average weight loss among all groups at about six pounds.

Loni Love: It’s Hard To “Carry Yourself Like A Wife” When There Is A Shortage Of Available Black Men To Marry
Culture editor Veronica Wells talked in depth this week about the small controversy singer Ciara stirred by sharing a clip of Pastor John Gray’s advice to women who were looking to get married. “Here’s what the scripture says, ‘He that finds a wife, finds a good thing,'” he said. “Didn’t say he that finds a girl that he’s attracted to, who he then begins to date, who he then calls his girlfriend, who he then buys a ring, proposes and makes his fiance, who he then marries later, who becomes his wife. You’re not a wife when I marry you. You’re a wife when I find you. You become my wife when I marry you. But a wife is not a presence of a ring, it’s a presence of your character. Too many women want
