Breitbart News is blasting the decision by Kellogg’s to pull its advertising from the far-right conservative website and encouraging its readers to boycott the breakfast cereal maker. “For Kellogg’s, an American brand, to blacklist Breitbart News in order to placate left-wing totalitarians is a disgraceful act of cowardice,” Alex Marlow, Breitbart editor in chief, wrote in article published online Wednesday. “Boycotting Breitbart News for presenting mainstream American ideas is an act of discrimination and intense prejudice.
The speed-crazed fools over at Hennessey Performance recently got their hands on a brand-new 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1. To celebrate the car's presence—with just 26 miles on the odometer—the company's head honcho took the muscle car from zero to 173-miles-per-hour...and pit the new 'Maro against Chevy's flagship sports car, the Corvette Z06. The Camaro ZL1, which we first saw in person at the New York International Auto Show in March, is one beast of a machine.
Levi’s has a simple request: Come for the jeans, but leave the heat at home. Levi Strauss CEO Chip Bergh released an open letter Wednesday requesting that gun owners do not bring their firearms into any of their stores when shopping for jeans. “Providing a safe environment to work and shop is a top priority for us at Levi Strauss & Co. That imperative is quickly challenged, however, when a weapon is carried into one of our stores,” he wrote in the letter.
A Washington state police officer responding to a domestic violence call was fatally shot and his fellow officers were still "taking fire" as they removed him from a home, beginning an 11-hour standoff during which authorities say the gunman used two young children as human shields. The fallen officer, Reginald "Jake" Gutierrez, had served with the department since 1999 and was highly respected and experienced, Tacoma Police Chief Donald Ramsdell told reporters Thursday. Dozens of officers had surrounded the home in Tacoma on Wednesday night, urging nearby residents of the working class neighborhood of single-family homes to shelter in place.

Ghazal Salim had spent more than two years in slavery under the so-called Islamic State when her chance for freedom finally came. As Kurdish and Iraqi forces prepared for the offensive on Mosul in mid-October, her captor, a Jordanian IS fighter, was also making plans for the battle. Along with Ms. Salim – one of the thousands of Yazidi women and girls taken by IS in 2014 – he took his wife and child from Mosul, where they lived, to Raqqa, the de facto IS capital in Syria.
United Launch Alliance has launched (no pun intended) a new online configurator that lets you design and build the rocket of your dreams on your home computer. To be fair, ULA’s online configurator for its Atlas V rocket—which you can access here—is a little more complex than your average automaker’s build-your-own website.

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas launched an investigation this week into an instructor who claimed on Facebook that he'd turn in undocumented immigrant students to federal law enforcement. School representatives told the Las Vegas Sun in a statement Thursday they were "looking into" part-time math teacher George Buch amid backlash from staff and students at the university, which in 2015 was ranked the second most diverse campus in the United States. Buch's views went viral Thursday after a student at the university shared two Facebook screenshots of a discussion he was having with another user.
By Daniel Ramos and Fredy Builes LA PAZ/MEDELLIN, Colombia (Reuters) - Bolivian authorities on Thursday suspended the license of a tiny charter airline whose plane crashed in Colombia this week after apparently running out of fuel, killing 71 people and wiping out a Brazilian soccer team on its way to a regional cup final. Monday night's disaster sent shock waves across the global soccer community and plunged Brazil, Latin America's largest nation, into mourning. The small Chapecoense team was traveling on a charter flight operated by airline LAMIA Bolivia to the biggest game in its history, the final of the Copa Sudamericana.
On paper, the new Inupiat Eskimo name of the nation's northernmost town is now official. A local Alaska Native corporation filed a civil lawsuit Wednesday that claims city officials rushed the process with insufficient outreach to the public. Plaintiffs also maintain the new name isn't even the area's traditional place name, and they also note the name change would come at a steep cost to the city in public expenditures to change signs, contracts and other documents to reflect the new name.

Human-induced earthquakes have rattled Oklahoma in recent years, a state known more for its wide-open plains than havoc-wreaking temblors. This water is pumped as part of the oil and gas production process in Oklahoma and other states in the central and eastern United States. Injecting wastewater from oil and gas extraction into underground wells has occurred for decades in Oklahoma without raising concern over induced seismicity, but in 2009, the rate and volume of injection massively increased, according to the study.

The U.N. said Friday an estimated 31,500 residents have been displaced following Syrian government advances into the besieged eastern Aleppo enclave this weekend, as government media reported from those newly-captured areas, demonstrating its restoration and resettlement efforts there. The advance of government and allied troops was one of the most dramatic shifts in the conflict now in its sixth year, as their troops marched into areas controlled by the opposition since 2012. Losing eastern Aleppo would cost the opposition its most significant urban presence.

Mike Pence, praised his V.P. pick as “such a wise decision for me.” Pence played a key role in crafting the deal with Carrier.

Foxconn reported the case to authorities after discovering the issue during an internal audit.
By Susan Heavey WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Carnival Corp's Princess Cruise Lines will plead guilty to seven felony charges for polluting the seas and deliberate acts to cover it up, and pay a record $40 million criminal penalty, the U.S. Justice Department said on Thursday. The charges against Carnival's Santa Clarita, California-based Princess unit stem from "illegal dumping of oil contaminated waste from the Caribbean Princess cruise ship," the department said in a statement on the company's "deliberate pollution of the seas and intentional acts to cover it up." Shares of Carnival, the world's largest cruise operator, were down more than 2 percent at $50.29 in midday trading on the New York Stock Exchange after the announcement. The Caribbean Princess had been making illegal discharges since 2005 using bypass equipment - including a so-called "magic pipe" - to circumvent pollution-prevention equipment that separates oil and monitors oil levels in the ship's water, the department said.
