    Two licensed nursing assistants are accused of having sexual relations with patients from an Iowa psychiatric facility. An investigation began when the Prairie View Management Facility in Fayette reported two patients had absconded Feb. 21. Four days later, deputies with the Fayette Sheriff’s Office learned the missing patients were seen with two nursing assistants from the facility, the Des Moines Register reported. Authorities soon determined Megan Penney, 26, of Clermont and Paige Johanningmeier, 23, of Elgin, “had developed a relationship with the two patients and once they had left the facility it became sexual,” the sheriff’s office said. The patients...

    Peyton Manning, the retired NFL quarterback and Papa John's pizza spokesman, reportedly sold his stake in 31 Papa John’s pizza locations around Denver just two days before the NFL and the pizza chain ended their partnership in late February. Manning's stake was part of a six-year joint venture with Papa John’s International, said Peter Collins, a spokesman for Papa John’s. Collins said a new franchisee, who owns locations in other markets, had purchased Manning's locations and assumed ownership.

    Microsoft has warned some PC users they will not be able to apply an emergency Windows patch because their security software is incompatible. The out-of-bounds update was issued by Microsoft yesterday to address the Meltdown and Spectre flaws in Intel chips. These vulnerabilities affect most PCs and servers, and can be exploited to allow an attacker to read sensitive information, such as passwords, from protected memory. The Spectre flaw also affects AMD chips, but is considerably more difficult to exploit, as well as a small number of Arm-based processors. However, not every Microsoft system will be able to apply the...

    Why is Scotch whisky so intimidating? There's something about this spirit — which is really nothing more than malt or grain-based whisky made in Scotland — that's got an intimidating rep. Well, once you know how to drink Scotch — and learn that it's not so scary after all — you'll be that cool, breezy bar-goer sipping Scotch like it's no biggie. First, the basics: all Scotch whisky has to meet certain legal standards to be granted it's name. Chiefly, it must be aged in oak barrels for at least three years. Scotch comes in two forms, single malts (all...

    Apple's main assembly partner, Foxconn, has been demanding illegal overtime from high school interns in its production of the iPhone X, a report charged on Tuesday. Six of the students —aged 17 to 19 —said they regularly work 11-hour days on the iPhone X at a factory in Zhengzhou, in violation of Chinese law for interns, according to the Financial Times. The students added that they're with a group of 3,000 students from Zhengzhou Urban Rail Transit School, who were sent to the Foxconn factory in September and told that a three-month internship was required to graduate. "We are being...

    Using a 3D printer, the team at Vietnamese security firm Bkav created a mask that managed to fool Apple’s Face ID authentication system. Using a composite 3D-printed mask, a team of Vietnamese researchers claim to have fooled Apple's Face ID authentication system in "super-premium" iPhone X, stressing that face recognition is "not mature enough" to guarantee security for smartphones. At iPhone X launch event, Apple's Senior Vice President Phil Schiller had claimed that Face ID can distinguish human's real face from masks, thanks to its artificial intelligence (AI). Using a 3D printer, the team at Vietnamese security firm Bkav created...

    ALBANY - A Staten Island state senator said Thursday that the drug fentanyl kills far more people on average every day than the recent Las Vegas mass shooting, yet doesn't generate nearly the same outrage. Sen. Andrew Lanza made the comments at a Staten Island event with Gov. Cuomo to push a bill to crack down on the makers of the deadly drug. “Recently we watched in horror the Las Vegas shooting in which 59 of our fellow citizens lost their lives,” Lanza said. “It was described as America’s worst mass murder, but if you look at the math, it’s...

    Apple has said it is looking into claims that the new iPhone 8 phones have split open due to expanding batteries. A small number of users have reported the phone's front panel separating from the rest of the casing. At present, the issue appears to be isolated to a handful of phones, with the reports coming from Asia. One user posting on Twitter showed the bottom of the screen casing detaching almost completely from the his iPhone 8 Plus. The phone appeared to bulge out from the middle before it had even been removed from the case, before opening further...

    hronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a progressive degenerative brain disease found in people with a history of repeated head trauma, can currently be detected only after death, through an autopsy. Absent being able to diagnose the disease in living patients, researchers cannot develop treatments for CTE. In the past several years, scientists have taken small steps forward in identifying possible biomarkers for the disease, and now researchers from the Boston University School of Medicine and the VA Boston Healthcare System (VABHS) have discovered a new biomarker that may potentially allow the disease to be diagnosed in the living. In a study...

    A woman being booked into an Illinois jail had a loaded handgun hidden in her vagina, according to corrections officers who found the weapon during a strip search of the suspect. Amika Witt, 20, and a male acquaintance were arrested early Thursday morning after their car was stopped for speeding on Interstate 55 just north of Bloomington. A police search of the vehicle and its occupants turned up heroin and Ecstasy. Witt, seen at right, was subsequently transported to the McLean County jail, where the intake process included a strip search. During the search of Witt, a female jailer recovered...

    Daily Caller ^ | 5:05 PM 08/13/2017 | ERIC LIEBERMAN AND RYAN PICKRELL
    One of the world’s largest technology conglomerates has amassed significant power and billions of dollars from its deals in China, a country often firmly opposed to the values the company’s leadership regularly espouses domestically. Apple Inc. made headlines recently for capitulating to the Chinese government while its CEO argues against President Donald Trump’s agenda at home. However, the company gave way to Beijing decades ago when it moved much of its manufacturing and assembly processes to China from other parts of Asia. Pursuing profit and power, the company made arrangements with the only country that could help it become what...

    The Chinese government’s crackdown on the internet continues with the news that Apple has removed all major VPN apps, which help internet users overcome the country’s censorship system, from the App Store in China. The move was first noted by ExpressVPN, a provider based outside of China, which said in a blog post “all major VPN apps” including its own had been purged from Apple’s China-based store. The company shared a note from Apple (below) explaining that its app was removed because “it includes content that is illegal in China.”

    A new electromagnetic launch system for aircraft carriers that has faltered when attempting to launch heavier planes is now sound thanks to a software fix, Navy officials announced this week. However, it won’t reach the Navy’s new carrier for more than a year. The Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System, or EMALS, is one of several brand-new technologies installed aboard the first-of-class supercarrier Gerald R. Ford, which was commissioned July 22. The system has drawn the ire of President Donald Trump, who said in a memorable May 11 interview with Time Magazine that he wanted the Navy to return to “goddamned steam”...

    He was, by any strict measure, not the best ever to play his game. That would be Jack Nicklaus or, maybe, Tiger Woods. Perhaps Ben Hogan. Or Bobby Jones. But you could certainly make the argument that Arnold Palmer was the greatest ever for the game. And it isn’t even close. No other golfer has ever been so widely known or well loved. None has done more to bring fans—and money—into golf, nor paid it back so handsomely. This is the case made by Tom Callahan in Arnie. The book is, mercifully, not a conventional, detailed biography of Arnold Palmer....
