    An American basketball player was suspended after an attempt to cheat at a urine drug test backfired spectacularly ­– revealing he was pregnant. The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) banned Donell “DJ” Cooper Jr, a 28-year-old point guard who last played for AS Monaco, for two years for “fraud” after a urine sample was found to contain a hormone commonly associated with pregnancy. Cooper, a Chicago native and former college standout, had gone undrafted in the 2013 NBA draft but developed a successful pro career in Europe.

    July 12, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A mother in the U.K. is suing England’s National Health Service (NHS) for more than Ł200,000 ($249,000 U.S.) for “wrongful birth,” alleging that health care workers did not conduct tests that would have revealed her unborn son’s Down syndrome. Edyta Mordel told London’s High Court that had she known he would be born with Down’s, she would have aborted her child, now four-year-old Aleksander, the Daily Mail reports. Mordel, 33, says she requested the tests during her pregnancy and was devastated when her baby was diagnosed with Down’s after birth. The case is legally classified...

    High schoolers who take music courses score significantly better on exams in certain other subjects, including math and science, than their non-musical peers, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association. "It is believed that students who spend school time in music classes, rather than in further developing their skills in math, science and English classes, will underperform in those disciplines. Our research suggests that, in fact, the more they study music, the better they do in those subjects." "Students who participated in music, who had higher achievement in music, and who were highly engaged in music had...

    This Tuesday America takes an IQ test. Or perhaps we should say a common sense test. Or even more a test to see the degree to which it has been brainwashed. This test has been going on for a week or two now in early voting in rather large numbers, but the results will be in, for the most part, late Tuesday night. You would think that with all economic indicators at or near an all-time high, unemployment at an all-time low (notably for minorities and women), wages rising as they haven't in years, the country at peace with the...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration will send a message to all U.S. cellphones on Thursday to test a previously unused alert system that aims to warn the public about national emergencies. The messages will bear the headline "Presidential Alert", the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said in a statement this week. Phones will make a loud tone and have a special vibration, said FEMA, which will send the alert. The test message, scheduled for 2:18 p.m. EDT on Thursday, will read: "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed." The test has...

    The U.S. government continues to perform highly secretive experiments on human subjects, according to partial information about these continuing experiments released under a Freedom of Information Act request. At least 12 programs run by the Department of Energy are using human beings as part of the experiments, which operate under unusual names such as "Moose Drool," "Little Workers," and "Hidden Valley," among others. An unclassified list of these experiments was provided to the Federation of American Scientists under a FOIA request and included in the organization’s latest newsletter. Little information about the nature of these experiments was provided by the...

    CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Some North Carolina elementary school teachers were initially told they would lose their jobs if they didn't pass a Math test they call difficult and unfair. Teachers say they recently got a call from their school district informing them they have another year to pass the test. Hundreds of teachers have failed the test repeatedly. Teachers argue what's on the test has nothing to do with what they teach in a classroom for students in Kindergarten to 5th grade. "Never in a million years would we even come close to teaching some of the topics on...

Engineers, Maine Department of Transportation officials, business leaders, investors, researchers, members from Advanced Infrastructure Technologies (UMaine's licensee for the original “Bridge-in-a-Backpack”) and staff attended the event, at which a bridge span was strength-tested in the laboratory using computer-controlled hydraulic equipment that simulates the heaviest highway truck loads. The strength-test was conducted for the first time to prove the design modeling predictions, and demonstrate the bridge system can withstand the truck loading specified in the American Association of State Highway and...

    Michigan lawmakers axed a requirement that would make prospective teachers take a basic skills test before earning their certification in Michigan. Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder signed legislation last week to get rid of the law requiring all prospective teachers to take the SAT to become certified in the state of Michigan, the Detroit Free Press reported. Knollenberg, who serves as the state Senate Education Committee chair, said the panel made its decision to make it easier for people to become teachers. “To me, the good teachers — they’re inspired and have passion. Why should they be burdened with a test...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in an interview broadcast Sunday said she knows who she is when pressed about her claims of Native-American heritage. She was questioned during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" about an editorial in a Massachusetts newspaper, "Warren must resolve debate on heritage, which said a DNA test would "permanently resolve the issue." “Look, I do know. I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere," Warren said.

    Amid the current media frenzy surrounding President Donald Trump’s yearly physical and cognitive exam, a group of cocky reporters agreed to undergo the same mental test which the president aced. They undoubtedly expected to find that they could pass the text with ease, thereby proving that it was far too easy an exam to be giving the President of the United States. However, the smug reporters were no longer laughing when the results of their own tests came in.

During the flight test, the Dream Chaser was released from a helicopter at an altitude of about 3,750 meters and glided to an autonomous runway landing 60 seconds later, reaching a top speed of 530 kilometers per hour during its descent. ... The milestone, formally known as Milestone 4B, was...

    North Korea claims it has a missile that could reach the West Coast of the United States and plans to test it in the very near future, according to Russian lawmakers who visited the reclusive nation this week.  “They are preparing for new tests of a long-range missile. They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the West Coast of the United States,” Anton Morozov, a member of the Russian Duma’s international affairs committee, told the RIA news agency, Reuters reports.  “In general, [North Korea’s] mood is rather belligerent,” Morozov added. “The situation, of course, demands...
