Words like “insane,” “crazy,” and “nuts” get thrown around a lot — I use them more than my fair share, if I’m being honest — but a New York design group just revealed plans for a new type of skyscraper that really can’t be described any other way. Clouds Architecture Office is the firm that wants to build the massive skyscraper, which it calls Analemma Tower. The structure, which at this point is completely conceptual and likely completely impossible, would require that an asteroid be captured and brought into near-Earth orbit.

A woman believed to have driven three burglars to an Oklahoma home where they were shot to death during a suspected home invasion has been arrested on murder and robbery warrants but the homeowner's son who shot them has not been arrested while police investigate whether he acted in self-defense under the state's "Stand Your Ground" law. Wagoner County Deputy Nick Mahoney said Tuesday that Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez, 21, of Oologah was arrested on three first-degree murder and three first-degree burglary warrants and was jailed without bond after going to police and saying she had information about the shooting at a home just east of the Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow. "It was determined she had driven these individuals to the house and dropped them off with the intent to burglarize the residence," Mahoney said.
A day after scolding journalist April Ryan during his daily briefing, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said criticism of the now-viral exchange is “demeaning” — to her. “April is a tough reporter that knows how to throw it out and take it back,” Spicer said in a Wednesday interview on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show. “We have very spirited back-and-forth,” Spicer explained.

WASHINGTON — Congressman Adam Schiff, increasingly the Democratic point man on the investigation into allegations of overly cozy ties between President Trump and Russia, is a soft-spoken former federal prosecutor and a critic of government surveillance who may be the only lawmaker ever to draw blood from comic Stephen Colbert — literally. Now Schiff is locked in a tense, headline-making standoff with the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, over how to proceed with a multi-tiered investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 election, a probe that the White House sees as a dagger aimed at Trump’s legitimacy even though Schiff hasn’t drawn blood yet.

When Tesla unveiled the Model 3 last year, tech and auto observers couldn’t help but notice that the car lacked an instrument cluster.

Because the design Tesla showed off was so outside the norm, many Tesla enthusiasts began speculating that Tesla must have a cool and advanced design it was planning to show us later on down the line.
California's attorney general said on Wednesday his office would press ahead in seeking the death penalty for a man who pleaded guilty to killing eight people in a 2011 shooting rampage, even though local prosecutors were sanctioned for acting improperly. The state's top elected law enforcement official assumed responsibility for the penalty phase of the case against Scott Dekraai after a California appeals court upheld a lower-court order recusing the Orange County District Attorney's Office over prosecutorial misconduct. Defense lawyers sought to remove local prosecutors and bar them from seeking the death penalty on grounds that jailhouse informants were improperly used to wring a confession from Dekraai.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has asked all members of the DNC staff to submit resignation letters by April 15, NBC News reported Tuesday. The party still is reeling from November’s election defeat, and the mass resignations will allow Perez, who was elected party chairman in February, the party’s third leader in a year, to remake party headquarters.
