    Shares of United Airlines are down markedly Tuesday, after a viral incident in which a passenger was forcibly removed from his seat on the plane because the flight was overbooked. United Continental Holdings are down 3.99 percent as the airline deals with a significant backlash over the scene. If the stock remains that low at market close, it will wipe some $675 million off its market capitalization.

Chris Bevintgon was a director of global partnerships at the Stockholm-based company before he died in Friday’s chaos, when a driver slammed a stolen beer truck into shoppers. The 41-year-old, a British citizen born in South Africa, was one of four people killed and 15 wounded in the attack, after which police arrested a 39-year-old Uzbek suspect, Rakhmat Akilov.

The same man was allegedly caught and beaten by residents‚ twice‚ in the past three months after they...

    Famed film director Spike Lee has joined the Colin Kaepernick debate, suggesting Sunday in an Instagram post that one of his hometown teams -- the New York Jets -- should sign the unemployed quarterback. "The New York J-E-T-S Need A Quarterback," wrote Lee, who said he spoke with Kaepernick over brunch. "Who Is The J-E-T-S Quarterback? Is My Man Joe Willie Namath Coming Back? Crazy Times We Live In." Lee used his post to rail against the NFL for excluding Kaepernick, who ignited a firestorm last fall because he refused to stand for the national anthem as a way to...
  • Drugs are killing so many people in Ohio that cold-storage trailers are being used as morgues

    By about 3 p.m. Friday, a county morgue in east Ohio was already full — and more bodies were expected. Rick Walters, an investigator for the Stark County coroner's office, had just left for two death scenes: a suicide and an overdose. From the road, he called the director of the Ohio Emergency Management Agency to ask for help. He needed more space, he explained — specifically, a cold-storage trailer to act as an overflow morgue. As with much of the United States, Ohio is in the throes of a heroin and opioid epidemic that shows no signs of abating.

    If your answer is, “you can’t be serious,” you’re not fully in tune with the contemporary landscape. On the other hand, your common sense quotient is high. The NFL scouting combine is basically an audition by more than 300 of the best collegiate football players who are eligible for the NFL draft. They come to Indianapolis each year to undergo on-field workouts, medical testing, interviews, and psychological testing.

    A Northumberland County woman died after her arm got caught in the door of a clothing drop-off box while apparently removing bags from the container and she was left dangling with her feet off the ground. Judith Permar, 56, of Mount Carmel, Pa., was standing on a step stool Sunday when it collapsed, breaking her arms and wrist and trapping her in the donation box, PennLive reported. "She was fishing bags out and the ladder she was standing on gave way and she couldn't get her hand loose," said Chief Brian Hollenbush, Mount Carmel Township Police, when contacted by phone....
  • No Longer Selling Access, the Clinton Foundation Begs for Funds

    The Clintons have always claimed their family charitable foundation was able to raise so much money because, deep down, Saudi princes and Ukrainian oligarchs are really concerned about poor children in Haiti. It will be interesting to see if past Clinton Foundation donors will continue their generous giving in the years to come. Hillary’s shocking defeat in the presidential election means that no member of the Clinton dynasty currently holds, or is running for, a powerful government position. The foundation has already started reaching out to donors to ask for money, the New York Post reports. Clinton Foundation chairman Bruce...

    A New Yorker was hospitalized with a gruesome injury while protesting the Dakota Access pipeline on North Dakota's Standing Rock Reservation, activists say. The woman — identified by activists as 21-year-old Sophia Wilansky — could lose her left arm after a Monday explosion behind the protest blockade near Cannon Ball tore through her winter jacket and skin, exposing bone. The Bronx woman was airlifted nearly 400 miles to the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis following the 4 a.m. incident, said Wilansky’s friend and fellow activist Vaimoana Niumeitolu. “They’re trying to see if her arm can be saved,” Niumeitolu told...

    President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source. “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed…. “The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. A second source confirmed the encounter. “The meeting took place...

    NOVEMBER 15--NFL star Von Miller, the reigning Super Bowl MVP, is seeking to quash the distribution of a sex tape that was recorded several months ago while the Denver Broncos linebacker was vacationing in Mexico, The Smoking Gun has learned. Lawyers for the 27-year-old athlete last week petitioned a Los Angeles judge to issue a restraining order barring Miller’s sex partner from selling or commercially exploiting the tape, which the Los Angeles woman filmed with her phone and reportedly offered to sell to Miller for $2.5 million. While the Los Angeles Superior Court action only lists the name “Doe” as...

    Despite initiating a worldwide recall of the Galaxy Note 7, some users continue to carry the ticking time bomb with them, even though in some regions, they can easily replace that phablet with a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge. However, in extremely rare cases, carrying a volatile smartphone is a blessing in disguise, and a thief had the misfortune of stealing that particular handset, which will probably force him to pursue a new hobby down the line. Thief Swipes Galaxy Note 7 While Its Owner Is Napping in a Café – Probably Regrets It Immediately Afterward One thief saw...

    Arizona will be hit the hardest whenObamacare premiums go up next year. The Department of Health and Human Services revealed Monday that premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, and that about 1 in 5 consumers will have plans only from a single insurer to pick from, after major national carriers such as UnitedHealth Group, Humana and Aetna scaled back their roles. However, in Arizona, unsubsidized premiums for a hypothetical 27-year-old buying a benchmark “second-lowest cost silver plan” will jump by 116 percent,...

    Chlamydia Gonorrhea Syphilis Infections from these three sexually spread diseases have hit another record high in the U.S. Chlamydia was the most common. More than 1.5 million cases were reported in the U.S. last year, up 6 per cent from the year before. Nearly 400,000 gonorrhea cases were reported, up 13 per cent.

    “When I first met her, we were given specific instructions: Don’t look at her, don’t look at her general direction and if you need to talk to her, keep it short and stay out of her way,” the agent said, backing up FBI documents released this week indicating that Clinton’s protective detail despised her for treating them with contempt. Members of her security detail had a hearty laugh at her expense when she fell and broke her right elbow as she walked to her car in the State Department basement on her way to a White House meeting in 2009....

    Recently, Fox News execs declared Megyn Kelly to be the longtime leading cable news network’s “future.” If so, that future doesn’t appear particularly bright… As the most recent viewership numbers show, Kelly’s program indicates a decided downward shift from Bill O’Reilly’s lead-in program, and then, even more damning for Kelly, is how the ratings jump back up for the Sean Hannity program, even though Hannity should, given the later time slot, have the smaller audience. Hannity has made clear his support of Donald Trump, while Kelly has for the past year, taken to filling her one-hour show with anti-Trump guests...
