Alabama woman charged in fetus' death after she was shot and lost her pregnancy

Alabama woman charged in fetus' death after she was shot and lost her pregnancy

An Alabama woman was shot in the stomach last year and lost her pregnancy. Now, the shooter has gone free, and the woman has been indicted for manslaughter in the fetus' death because police say she was at fault for initiating the shooting. Marshae Jones, 27, was charged Wednesday and taken into custody on a $50,000 bond, Jefferson County authorities said. Jones was five months pregnant when 23-year-old Ebony Jemison shot her in the stomach during a December 2018 altercation regarding the fetus' father, Alabama news station WBMA-LD reported at the time. Marshae Jones, 27, was arrested...

Twitter pulls Marsha Blackburn ad over 'sale of baby body parts' line

Twitter pulls Marsha Blackburn ad over 'sale of baby body parts' line

NASHVILLE — Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn's online video announcing her campaign for U.S. Senate has been blocked in any Twitter advertisements after the social media company objected to a line that Blackburn's campaign announced Twitter's decision on Monday after a representative of Twitter informed her campaign that the line "had been deemed an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction." The language violates Twitter's policy for advertisements, the company said. "If this is omitted from the video it will be permitted to serve," a Twitter...

As pool of eligible recruits shrinks, military branches compete more than ever for enlistees

As pool of eligible recruits shrinks, military branches compete more than ever for enlistees

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Recent high school graduate Cameron Newton, 19, spent a year working at a Pensacola Beach seafood restaurant, but wasn't sure about his long-term life plans. Growing up near Naval Air Station Pensacola, he thought about joining the Navy. "But I didn't want to be on a boat," Newton said. And the Army? "That just isn't for me," he said. So Newton ended up in the office of Air Force recruiter Sgt. Carlos Morales, where he signed his final paperwork this summer before heading off to basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. Experts say Newton fits...

The week in polls: Trump gains in 9 of 12 swing states, but Biden still leads in 10 of them

The week in polls: Trump gains in 9 of 12 swing states, but Biden still leads in 10 of them

With just eight days to go before the election, both national poll and swing state surveys make it clear the race is tightening. President Donald Trump gained on his Democratic challenger Joe Biden in national polling averages, and in nine of 12 contested states. But Biden still holds a sizable lead in the national polls and is still ahead of Trump in 10 of the 12 states that could decide the election. Biden's average lead is only 3 percentage points or more in five of the swing states, but those include the crucial states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin that Trump flipped in...

Donald Trump is not America's first racist president, but hopefully he'll be our last

Donald Trump is not America's first racist president, but hopefully he'll be our last

Why does Trump hate the things that make our country great? And how do the rest of us get beyond this hatred and ignorance? It was amusing at the start of the great racist tweet controversy to hear the media asking, “Is President Donald Trump a racist?” We are well beyond such questions. “I am the least racist person you have ever met,” he has said on numerous occasions. If you were living solo on a deserted island and he showed up, that might be true, but for everyone else, it’s just another one of his delusional claims. In fact, I have met the president myself, and he’s off by one...

Trump got some bad news on Super Tuesday: Democratic voters are eager to show him the door

Sally KohnOpinion columnnistThe best news for Democrats in the may not be the surge of Joe Biden, or Bernie Sanders hanging on, or even  dropping out (although I am personally extra thrilled about that). No, the best news is the record and near record turnout of Democratic voters all across the country. Whoever the eventual nominee is, it’s clear that Democrats are fired up and ready to vote to defeat Donald Trump.In , Democratic primary turnout was the highest on record, surpassing the previous record set in 2008. In fact, 23% of registered Virginians cast ballots on Super Tuesday, which...

Swedish official Anders Tegnell says 'herd immunity' in Sweden might be a few weeks away

Swedish official Anders Tegnell says 'herd immunity' in Sweden might be a few weeks away

Sweden, unlike its Nordic neighbors Denmark and Norway – and virtually every other country in the western world – has resisted extensive lockdown restrictions to stem the coronavirus outbreak. Instead, it's largely kept society, including schools and restaurants open, and relied on voluntary social-distancing measures that appeal to the public's sense of self-restraint. Polls show the strategy is broadly supported by most Swedes. Scientists in Sweden and abroad have accused the country of dangerously pursuing "herd immunity" – the idea that by building a broad base of recovered infections...
