  • Hurricane Florence makes landfall in North Carolina, with plenty of destruction and suffering ahead

    Hurricane Florence has made landfall in North Carolina, but its crawling pace and overwhelming storm surges are setting up hours and hours of destruction and human suffering — with dozens desperately awaiting rescue in one flooded city alone. The Category 1 hurricane, with punishing winds and dumping 3 inches of rain an hour, made landfall at 7:15 a.m. ET near Wrightsville Beach, just east of Wilmington.

  • A man put up an electric fence near a school bus stop to keep kids off his lawn

    A Virginia man took “you kids get off of my lawn” to new levels by putting up an electric fence near a spot where students wait for the school bus. Bryan Tucker said he erected the fence Tuesday because he had trouble last year with kids trespassing and littering on his property. “They don’t respect other peoples’ land,” Tucker told CNN affiliate WTVR. “I pick up trash every day.” He said the “No Trespassing” signs he has posted on his property […]

  • Hurricane Florence, the first major hurricane of the year, could pose a threat to the US East Coast

    Hurricane Florence is still way out in the Atlantic, but the Category 3 storm could threaten the US East Coast by late next week. The first major hurricane of the 2018 season, Florence on Wednesday morning had maximum sustained winds of 125 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. It was about 2,000 miles from the US coastline, still way too far out for a confident landfall prediction. Still, the European and American computer models on Wednesday morning showed a menacing hurricane coming […]

  • Kindergarten principal in China fired after kids welcomed with pole dance

  • Yes, the Texas Senate race is for real

    It’s September 4. Labor Day was Monday. We are now officially in the final sprint of the 2018 midterm campaigns, and we are still talking about the Texas Senate race. That is remarkable given that Texas has, for the last several decades, been one of the most reliable Republican states in the country. But polls and people agree; Democrat Beto O’Rourke is withing striking distance of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R). Why? How? And where are we going? I reached out to […]

  • Amazon is now worth $1,000,000,000,000

    Amazon has become America’s second $1 trillion company. Amazon’s total market value passed $1 trillion on Tuesday, following Apple’s ascent into 13-digit territory at the beginning of August. Amazon and Apple now make up more than 8% of the entire value of the S&P 500, according to Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst for S&P. A trillion dollars may be an arbitrary threshold, but it’s still a remarkable statement of how quickly the 24-year-old company has grown, and the boundless confidence investors have […]

  • Nike investors aren’t happy about the Colin Kaepernick ad

  • He lived in a crack house. Now he’s guiding people out of addiction, with meditation

    Vinny Ferraro makes his way to a chair at the front of a dim, chatter-filled room. Most Friday nights in San Francisco, he leads a meditation and an open discussion group session. And tonight is that night. Once seated, Ferraro bends down to remove his shoes. He then sits up straight, closes his eyes and takes a deep breath before opening his eyes to say, “All right, all right, all right, y’all. Let’s bring it in.” Everyone — from ex-cons […]
