    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) - Police need help finding a woman who poisoned her husband's food for months and then skipped town before her sentencing date. Andrea Araceli Heming, 49, pleaded guilty to tainting her husband's food with a substance called boric acid. The poison is usually used to kill cockroaches. "It slices your intestinal tract from the throat down," the victim, Ralph Heming, said. "If you start passing blood or spitting up blood, you're dead."

    Hillary Clinton's campaign is taking the reins of the Democratic National Committee, installing a new top official on Thursday to oversee the party's day-to-day operations through the general election. Brandon Davis, national political director for the Service Employees International Union, will become the general election chief of staff for the Democratic Party. His selection formalizes the coordination of the Clinton campaign and the committee, a stark contrast to Donald Trump who is currently at odds with his party. Robby Mook, the Clinton campaign manager, arrived Thursday morning at Democratic headquarters on Capitol Hill to introduce Davis to the party's staff.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) avoided expressing support for Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) at her weekly briefing Thursday. Pelosi, an avid defender of Wasserman Schultz over the past few months, avoided answering a question about Schultz’s future in the DNC. During a press conference, a reporter asked Pelosi about Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) suggestion that Schultz should be replaced as head of the DNC. “Sen. Sanders did say that he would like to see Debbie Wasserman Schultz replaced as the head of the DNC. Hillary Clinton did not close the lid on...

    A Norwegian biorefinery company has started turning waste wood fibre into a cream-like fat substitute which it claims can be used to make ice cream, mayonnaise and even hot dogs. Borregaard has already opened a plant in Wisconsin, USA, producing the revolutionary new substance, which it calls Sense-Fi,and plans to open a second factory in Sarpsborg, Norway, in 2016. "We are rolling it out primarily in the US, where it has been approved. Sales are just about underway, and there is a lot of focus on fighting obesity," says business director Harald Rønneberg Borregaard to Norway's Dagbladet newspaper. Researchers at...

    NORFOLK The failures of a civilian police officer at the gate of Norfolk Naval Station allowed an intruder to enter the base without authorization last March and fatally shoot a sailor aboard the destroyer Mahan as it sat pierside, a Navy investigation has found. The guard failed to ask the intruder for identification or his intent, did not immediately pursue him when he realized the driver was not making a U-turn, and did not sound an alarm to warn others on base, demonstrating a complete lapse of proper security procedure, said the Navy report, released Tuesday evening. Those errors were...

    You have to break some eggs to make an omelet and, according to a lawsuit from the maker of Hellmann’s, the same goes for mayonnaise. The food company Unilever is suing a California company that uses the word “Mayo” in its sandwich spread name, saying that federal regulators and dictionaries define mayonnaise as a spread that contains eggs.The suit claims false advertising by the company Hampton Creek for labeling its egg-free product “Just Mayo.” Unilever says in a complaint filed in federal court that the word “mayo” implies that the product is mayonnaise, and Just Mayo is “stealing market share...

    Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in a behind-the-scenes struggle with the White House, congressional Democrats and Washington insiders who have lost confidence in her as both a unifying leader and reliable party spokesperson at a time when they need her most. Long-simmering doubts about her have reached a peak after two recent public flubs: criticizing the White House’s handling of the border crisis and comparing the tea party to wife beaters. ....One example that sources point to as particularly troubling: Wasserman Schultz repeatedly trying to get the DNC to cover the costs of her wardrobe. In 2012,...

    Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, stopped at a Hobby Lobby store in her district on Wednesday – not to pick up some craft supplies for one of her kid’s school projects, but to alert people to the store’s existence and urge people not to shop there. “I want people to know that this Hobby Lobby is here and they should vote with their purses and their pocketbooks, and women should not shop here. If you didn’t know this Hobby Lobby was here before, know it now and don’t shop here. They don’t...

    NORFOLK A civilian police officer has been placed on leave and the Navy is boosting security measures at bases from Virginia to Maine after last week's shooting aboard the destroyer Mahan. The guard who allowed the shooter onto Norfolk Naval Station was a federal police officer, not a sailor or a contractor, officials said Monday. Everyone entering a base in the service's mid-Atlantic region using a transportation worker credential - the kind Jeffrey Savage showed before he shot and killed a sailor - now must be checked against a federal crime database. Until last week, those checks weren't mandatory. Navy...

    If bourbon is the social lubricant of the South, then mayonnaise is the culinary ball bearings. It makes your deviled eggs, chicken salads, potato salads, pimiento cheese, and tomato sandwiches sing. So why master homemade mayonnaise? For starters, it’s healthier and tastes better than store-bought (yes, even Duke’s). Plus, making mayo will make your grandmother’s heart full.

    What’s America’s favorite condiment? Hint: it’s not ketchup. The answer is mayonnaise: specifically Hellmann’s, which the nation apparently slops on everything except french fries. Hellmann’s alone accounted for $401.2 million in sales last year, according to Businessweek -- nearly a third of the total $1.3 billion mayo market here. Heinz Ketchup is a distant third with $278.6 million in sales, edged out by the $286.2 million worth of Tostito’s salsa sold last year.

    The Department of Justice has filed a whistleblower complaint against Mayo Clinic . "Dr. David Ketroser, the lead whistleblower in this case, is a physician and an attorney," says a Department of Justice statement provided by Mayo. According to the justice department, "Mayo billed Medicare, Medicaid, and other federal health care programs for surgical pathology services it never provided; specifically, the preparation and examination of human tissue slides." Mayo spokesman Bryan Anderson said that "upon discovering a billing error in 2007, Mayo corrected it and voluntarily refunded $242,711 to the government.

    The suit accuses the clinic of submitting fraudulent claims to Medicare and Medicaid for thousands of pathology tests that were never performed. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the complaint states that over the course of the last 10 years, Mayo has routinely billed Medicare, Medicaid and other federally sponsored health care programs for surgical pathology services that have not been performed. The paper reports plaintiffs in the suit include former Mayo patients, survivors of deceased Mayo patients, and Minnesota attorney David Ketroser. Mayo Clinic spokesman, Bryan Anderson, released a statement saying: "Upon discovering a billing error in 2007, Mayo corrected...
