A judge sentenced a Georgia man to 40 years in prison Wednesday for throwing scalding water on a gay couple sleeping in an apartment, leaving them with severe burns that required surgery. Jurors deliberated for about 90 minutes before finding Martin Blackwell, 48, guilty of eight counts of aggravated battery and two counts of aggravated assault in the February attack on Anthony Gooden and Marquez Tolbert. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Henry Newkirk said the evidence was overwhelming and that Blackwell had behaved in a soulless and malicious way.

"Striking gold" is mainly a term to express when someone gets really lucky nowadays, but by golly, someone has actually done it. A 145-ounce gold nugget has been reportedly found in Victoria, Australia by a real life prospector and could be worth more than A$250,000 ($190,710) when it goes to auction. The anonymous prospector initially found a nine ounce tennis ball-shaped gold nugget two feet deep, returning the next day to see if there was more, according to a statement from metal detector manufacturer, Minelab.

Activists have said hundreds of Ankara-backed rebels were preparing an offensive against the IS group to seize control of the Syrian town of Jarabulus, which lies opposite the town of Karkamis in Turkey.

Instant noodles are usually thought of as the go-to meal for broke college students. According to research presented Monday at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, ramen—known in penitentiaries as “soups”—has replaced cigarettes as the most popular form of prison currency. Michael Gibson-Light, a University of Arizona doctoral student and the lead author of an unpublished study about the issue, attributes the rise of ramen to “punitive frugality.” That’s what happens when prisons cut inmate care costs and the responsibility of paying for food and commissary items shifts to prisoners and their families.
The Colorado Rockies are huge, and so are the grilles on Ford's new line of Super Duty trucks. After spending two days with a range of different Super Duty trucks—spanning the heavy-pickup canon from two-door work truck to crew-cabbed dual rear wheel rigs capable of towing more than 30,000 pounds—it was difficult not to walk away from the display with a feeling that Ford knows what it's doing when it comes to trucks. Ford has already sold more than 460,000 F-Series trucks this year.
Mirman was a victim of sepsis, an often deadly reaction to certain infections that can quickly race through your body, shutting down vital organs. More than a million people in the U.S. develop sepsis each year, and more than 250,000 deaths a year are linked to it, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While many cases are linked to infections contracted in hospitals, doctor offices, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities, a report out today from the CDC says that nearly half are community-acquired, meaning from infections people contract in their homes, schools, playgrounds, and elsewhere.

It took around 200 firefighters three hours to put out the blaze, which began around 1:30 a.m. in a three-story building in the South Chicago neighborhood.

By Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - Man-made greenhouse gases began to nudge up the Earth's temperatures almost 200 years ago as the Industrial Revolution gathered pace, far earlier than previously thought, scientists said on Wednesday. Greenhouse gas emissions from industry left their first traces in the temperatures of tropical oceans and the Arctic around 1830, they said, challenging widespread views that man-made climate change began only in the 20th century. The Industrial Revolution began around 1750 in Britain, with a surge in the use of coal to power factories, ships and railways, and gradually spread around the world.
Turkey on Tuesday sent more tanks into Syria and sternly warned a Kurdish militia to withdraw from frontline positions, a day after pro-Ankara Syrian opposition fighters captured a key border town from jihadists. The tanks joined those which crossed the frontier on Wednesday in the so-called Operation Euphrates Shield, which Turkey says aims at ridding the northern Syrian border area of both Islamic State (IS) extremists and Kurdish militia. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that the offensive had expelled IS from the Syrian town of Jarabulus, and pro-Ankara rebels reported the jihadists had retreated south to the town of Al-Bab.

The moratorium prompted the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the NAACP to request a federal civil rights investigation in Newton County. Opposition gathered swiftly this month as word spread that members of a mosque in Doraville, a northwest Atlanta suburb, planned to build on 135 acres in rural Newton County about 40 miles southeast of Atlanta.

A Minnesota mom is furious after she says she and her young son were surrounded by multiple police officers and TSA agents all because her son has a pacemaker.

The youngster, who wants to be a pilot, is an avid traveler and usually asks for an alternative screening at TSA.
Pakistani police charged the exiled leader of a major political party with treason and inciting terrorism Tuesday, as his own second-in-command vowed to disown him a day after a violent protest in Karachi. Altaf Hussain, leader of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) which rules Karachi, Pakistan's biggest city, was accused with a dozen other party leaders of shouting anti-Pakistan slogans at the demonstration Monday. Security forces also sealed the party's headquarters, a day before the city council was due to elect imprisoned MQM member Waseem Akhtar as mayor.
A South Florida boy has survived a rare brain-eating amoeba that kills most people, aided in part because a hard-to-get drug to fight the infection is made by a company based in Orlando where he was hospitalized, doctors said Tuesday. Sebastian DeLeon came to the hospital two weeks ago with sensitivity to light and a headache so severe the 16-year-old couldn’t tolerate anyone touching him, doctors at Florida Hospital for Children said at a news conference. Hospital staffers had been trained to look for the amoeba, which often is contracted through the nose when swimming in freshwater lakes or rivers.
