    "Is there anything wrong about my body," the music legend told ET's Lauren Zima on opening night of her Courage Tour in Quebec, Canada, as she flexed her bicep. Dion, 51, has recently faced criticism over her slimmer appearance, however, she's developed a thick skin over the years. "I do ballet. I do a lot of stretching and I work out because it helps my mind, body and soul," she shared. "When you go back, when I was 12 years old, my face was rounder because you have more fat when you're younger…But I've always been very thin"

    Almost a month after Harley Dilly disappeared on his way to school, police believe the Port Clinton, Ohio, boy’s body has been found in a chimney. “This is not the outcome anyone wanted, but … we have some closure for the family,” Port Clinton Police Chief Robert Hickman said Tuesday. Harley, 14, was last seen on Dec. 20 in Port Clinton as he left for school between 6 and 7 a.m., police said. At least 75 law enforcement agencies have scoured more than 150 acres with helicopters, trained dogs and search-and-rescue teams, Port Clinton police said. During another sweep of...

    DES MOINES, IA—The FCC announced today that the next Democratic debate will not require viewers to use a color television. The decision was made in part due to the fact that all the remaining candidates are white. The FCC cites several other reasons for the change, however. The FCC reminded everyone in a statement that the only color you'll need to make out the candidates' skin color is white. “Listen, we didn’t want to leave anybody out,” said FCC employee Steven Penta. “Over one percent of American’s live without color TV, and that makes those folks a minority. We didn’t...

    Walmart has shared that managers misused $20,000 of a Christmas donation from a foundation associated with Chicago Bears linebacker Khalil Mack. Mack's foundation made the $80,000 donation last month to a location in Fort Pierce, Florida, where the star athlete was born and raised. The donation went towards 350 layaway accounts that totaled $60,000. The remaining funds reportedly went to employees in a decision made by the store's management.

    TEHRAN—As Iranians protested their government's downing of a passenger jet, a frantic CNN reporter ran through the crowd lecturing them on how they were actually supposed to be shouting "Death to America!" The CNN reporter arrived at the protests, excited to cover another anti-US protest but quickly realized they were actually shouting "Death to the dictator!" and blaming their government for shooting down the plane. "Guys, you're ruining the narrative!" he cried through a megaphone. "We can't run with this! You're willing to assign blame to Iran more readily than the media and the Democrats were! This isn't good for...

    The American people no longer trust what they hear from the media and their government. . . While the media and government officials have repeatedly assured the country that Epstein committed suicide in his prison cell on August 10, 2019, the American people are not convinced. A new Rasmussen Reports survey indicates that only 21% of the American people believe that Epstein killed himself. While 27% are undecided, most respondents, 52%, believe that Epstein was murdered.
  • Cartel Assassin ‘La Catrina’ Shot Dead By Cops In Mexico

    A 21-year-old Mexican cartel assassin — known for flaunting her curves and dangerous weapons on social media — was gunned down in a shootout with authorities, according to new reports. Maria Guadalupe Lopez Esquivel, also known by her alias “La Catrina,” was shot in the neck Friday as Mexico’s army, National Guard and Michoacán state police raided the safe house where she stayed with several armed members of the murderous Jalisco New Generation Cartel, according to Britain’s The Sun and the Mexican outlet El Universal. A frightened and disheveled Esquivel collapsed behind a wall and was found with her face...

    Cal Matters ^ | January 9, 2020 | Brendan Rawson
    California has overreached in its effort to address the challenges in today’s tech platform gig-work economy. The live music sector, the progenitor of the term “gig” work, is being swept up by this law. The irony would be comical if it were not such a serious problem. There are some worthy arguments to be made for Assembly Bill 5 by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, San Diego Democrat. It could improve the lot of workers trying to piece together a living in this expensive state. It should help capture unemployment taxes from unscrupulous employers misclassifying workers as independent contractors. However, the law...

    Transit officials said they pulled nearly 300 of the MTA’s newest subway cars after two door malfunctions — but records show the $600 million fleet’s recent woes go beyond the pair of incidents. Between Dec. 1 and Jan. 7, the new R179 subway cars recorded 16 incidents — including at least 10 involving doors, according to internal reports obtained by THE CITY. The reports cited repeated issues of “guard light trouble.” Guard lights are the red indicators that show whether doors are fully closed. In some cases, a door panel had to be locked, leaving passengers a narrow entry and...

    The oldest solid material on Earth has just been identified, and it predates the Solar System itself by at least a few hundred million years. The teensy tiny microscopic grains of dust were forged in a distant star somewhere between 5 and 7 billion years ago, according to new research. By comparison, our Sun is just 4.6 billion years old. Eventually, these grains were carried to Earth in a meteorite. "This is one of the most exciting studies I've worked on," said cosmochemist Philipp Heck of the Field Museum of Natural History and the University of Chicago. "These are the...

    The youngest mayor in America was sworn in Sunday evening in southeast Texas. At just seven months old, William Charles "Charlie" McMillian was inaugurated as honorary Mayor of Whitehall. Nearly 150 people celebrated the mayor at the Whitehall Community Center. Mayor Charlie was elected to serve the Whitehall community in Grimes County back in October. Each year the position of mayor is auctioned off at the Whitehall Volunteer Fire Department BBQ Fundraiser. This year, Charlie was the highest bidder, thereby "electing" him the youngest mayor in America. The mayors adopted father, Chad McMillan said Charlie's motto is to "Make America...

    Britain, France and Germany ratcheted up pressure on Iran Tuesday to cease its violations of a landmark nuclear deal, stressing that they want to resolve differences through talks while starting the clock on a process that could result in a so-called “snapback” of United Nations sanctions. The three countries, which signed the international agreement in 2015 along with the United States, Russia and China, said in a letter to the European Union’s foreign policy chief that they had no choice but to trigger the deal’s “dispute mechanism,” given Iran’s ongoing transgressions. The three said they rejected Tehran’s argument that Iran...

    Murder charges were dropped against an Alabama man accused of killing his wife 30 years ago — after the couple’s friend confessed to the slaying just hours before the trial got underway, officials said. The stunning announcement came Monday as 55-year-old Carl Harris was set to face trial for the 1990 murder of Tracy Harris, who was found dead in the Choctawhatchee River with signs of strangulation. Ozark Police said 54-year-old Jeff Beasley, a former friend of the couple, admitted to the murder on Sunday — providing very specific details about the case. “The new evidence was information that had...

  • Film Noir of the Week - The Driver (1978)

    This week we take a look at the intense neo-noir, The Driver. Directed by Walter Hill, this cold neo is a perfect example of how film noir evolved into experimental crime films in the 1970s. The Driver is a cold, lean piece of pure cinema. A night time world of criminals and angry cops.(snip) Starring a very disco cast, the film has barely any dialog. Bruce Dern gets the most lines as the man chasing the "driver." Mostly he frustratingly barks at middle-aged-hard-life-cops played by day-player actors that peppered every crime films of the time. Beautiful Isabelle Adjani is...

    House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday that he expects to be named an impeachment manager by House Democrats following Wednesday's floor vote to send articles of impeachment to the Senate. Nadler told reporters in the Capitol that he didn't know the names of lawmakers Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) plans to announce as prosecutors for the Senate impeachment trial, but when asked directly by CNN's Manu Raju if he would be named one, Nadler replied: "I'd expect so." His comments come ahead of Wednesday's planned vote on a resolution to name the impeachment managers and send the...
