An internal memo reportedly hacked from the personal computer of Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the US House of Representatives, shows how officials were briefed on how to respond to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement – including "tactics" on how to answer questions by activists. The document, reportedly authored in November last year by a staffer called Troy Perry, states that Democratic Party candidates and members should never use the phrases "all lives matter" nor mention "black on black crime" as they are "viewed as red herring attacks" and "will garner additional media scrutiny and only anger BLM activists." The Black Lives Matter movement was formed in 2012 following the death of
It was an Instagram-worthy trip that has ended badly for three Canadians in Australia. André Tamine, 63, Isabelle Lagacé, 28, and Melina Roberge, 22, all from Quebec, have been charged with importing a commercial quantity of cocaine, according to the Associated Press. 95 kilograms (200 lbs) were seized by the Australian Federal Police on a cruise ship docked in Sydney on Sunday. Worth A$31 million ($23 million), it's the largest ever seizure of narcotics carried by passengers of a cruise ship or airliner in the country.

An Ohio woman calling 911 said she witnessed a man shoot and kill Deborah Pearl after the two were involved in a car accident on Aug. 27. Deborah Pearl was driving to work Saturday morning through the local streets of Solon, Ohio, a Cleveland suburb so serene that Money magazine last year named it one of the top 10 places to live in the United States. It was just after 7 a.m. when the 53-year-old mother of three cruised through an intersection and a man in a sport-utility vehicle ran a red light, slamming into the driver’s side of Pearl’s Ford Taurus, police reports would later say. The intensity of the crash caused Pearl’s car to skid across the intersection and the SUV to roll several times until it came to a rest flipped upside down, police reports said.
Iceland has been forced to bow to pressure from elves and uncover a supposedly enchanted elfin rock after highway workers accidentally buried it -- infuriating the mythical creatures, reports said Tuesday. The angry elves were suspected of causing a series of mishaps after the rock was covered over when workers cleared away the debris from a landslide, the Morgunbladid daily reported. Iceland is no stranger to bending to the will of its elfin population.
If Russian hackers who breached Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee computers wanted to jostle the left, they’ve certainly succeeded. Officials at the House Democratic campaign arm appear very worried that their negative assessments about their own candidates, which were hacked and released publicly by a group linked to Russian intelligence, will be used against them by Republicans. DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján, in a letter Monday to his counterpart, National Republican Campaign Committee Chairman Greg Walden, asked the Oregon Republican to bar all Republicans from using the DCCC internal memo with the damaging information in ads against Democrats. Story Continued Below Luján argued that
When Kevon Smith Sr. sat down for breakfast at Cracker Barrel with his son Kevon Jr. in Willoughby, OH, he had no idea he was going to make headlines just for being a good dad. Kevon noticed a couple staring and smiling at him and his 3-month-old son, and although he was confused, he just went on with the meal. "I noticed this older couple over in the corner," he said. "They kept smiling at me and I was looking at my son like, 'What is going on?'" But when Kevon left the restaurant, it all made sense, as he saw a note on his car from the couple praising his parenting along with cash to cover his breakfast. "Today your meal is on my wife and me," it read. "Enjoy that baby as long as God intends.
If you’re a fan of the popular Batman saga, you likely remember that in The Dark Knight Rises, the film closes with Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character Blake finding the Batcave. This heavily implies that Blake (whose real name turns out to be Robin) will rise up to become a hero for another movie. Unfortunately for fans of Gordon-Levitt, however, there were no future films for him to take on this role. “I know we’re all used to the sort of Marvel movies, which are just kind of endless series,” said Gordon-Levitt.

Frank Ocean is an impressive car fanatic, as proven by him penning car essays and peppering marques into lyrics from his new album, Blonde. Diametrically opposing Ocean, in both automotive taste and adroitness, is Will.I.Am. Case in point: what he’s done to this poor Tesla Model S.
A team of doctors is scheduled to operate Wednesday on Paul Mason, who was once the world's fattest man. At Mason’s heaviest, he weighed 981 pounds. After gastric bypass surgery in 2010, he began to lose weight. He has since lost 658 pounds. His saga attracted a lot of media interest. TLC aired a documentary about him. British newspapers wrote many stories about his weight loss and love life. He appeared on daytime television shows, such as "The View," to discuss his new life as a slimmer man. Yet he still feels trapped in his own skin. The surgery at New York City's Lenox Hill Hospital this week will be the second pro-bono operation on Mason to remove excess skin that hangs off his smaller body.
