A famous Chinese "rooftopping" enthusiast has unwittingly filmed his own death as he fell from a 62-story skyscraper during one of his trademark daredevil stunts. Wu Yongning, 26, was performing pull-ups at the summit of the Huayuan Hua Center, one of the tallest buildings in Changsha, in central China, when he lost his grip and fell. Wu had amassed thousands of followers on Weibo, a popular Chinese social media site, after posting dramatic short videos showing himself perched atop tall buildings without the use of safety equipment.
During the weekend, a Tennessee woman took to Facebook with her son Keaton Jones' emotional video about the relentless bullying he experiences in school that went viral almost instantly.
The example Sanders cited -- when prompted to back up her outrageous claim -- was that of Brian Ross' reporting on ABC. "I think that was pretty misleading to the American people, and I think that it's very telling that that individual had to be suspended because of that reporting," said Sanders. "I think that shows that the network took it seriously and recognized that it was a problem." As a reminder, Ross reported, citing a single source, that former national security adviser Michael Flynn was prepared to testify to special counsel Robert Mueller that then-candidate Donald Trump had directed him to reach out to the Russians. Ross corrected his reporting the same day, noting that his source
Off the coast of South Africa, just below the ocean’s surface, an epic battle is underway as killer whales hunt and kill the world’s most iconic predator, the great white shark. The phenomenon began in early May when scientists at the shark cage diving company Marine Dynamics spotted a pair of killer whales cruising along the southwestern coast of South Africa. Days later, great white shark carcasses began washing up in their wake. “From a scientific perspective in South Africa, it’s absolutely unprecedented,” said Alison Towner, white shark biologist at the Dyer Island Conservation Trust in Gansbaai, South Africa. The five great white sharks that washed up on the beach ranged from 9 to 16 feet
As regular readers know, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin assured lawmakers and the public that he had dozens of officials working on creating a detailed analysis of the Republican tax plan he helped craft. The report, Mnuchin added, would be available before Congress voted. None of that was true. The New York Times reported two weeks ago that officials inside the Treasury’s Office of Tax Policy claim to have been “largely shut out of the process” and haven’t “worked on the type of detailed analysis” that Mnuchin described.

The Boeing 747 is one of the most recognizable aircraft. One reason for that - besides its popularity - is its distinctive hump on the roof. The hump was an innovative solution to a design challenge. Following is a transcript of the video. Turns out, that hump has been around since the '60s. Back then, everyone was excited about supersonic commercial flight, which could have taken you from NY to Paris in a few hours. A Boeing 747 that took 9 hours for the same trip would soon become obsolete. So, the Boeing company planned ahead with its 747 model. The plane was designed for both passengers and cargo, so if passengers stopped flying it, the 747 was still useful. That's where the iconic hump
