    Huma Abedin, the estranged wife of disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner, has been working closely by Hillary Clinton's side since her time as an intern at age 19. She's now 40-years-old. When news broke on Friday the FBI was reopening its investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Abedin immediately left the campaign trail with the most crucial of days of the 2016 presidential campaign ahead. She reportedly told friends she doesn't know how her emails ended up on her husband's computer, which were found by FBI agents investigating Weiner for alleged sexting of an underage girl. Her attorney Karen...

    Redmond races to revoke Secure Boot debug policy Microsoft leaked the golden keys that unlock Windows-powered tablets, phones and other devices sealed by Secure Boot – and is now scrambling to undo the blunder. These skeleton keys can be used to install non-Redmond operating systems on locked-down computers. In other words, on devices that do not allow you to disable Secure Boot even if you have administrator rights – such as ARM-based Windows RT tablets – it is now possible to sidestep this block and run, say, GNU/Linux or Android. What's more, it is believed it will be impossible...

    Jim Berkland, a former US Geological Survey scientist, who once famously predicted the Loma Prieta quake, said mega quakes usually strike at a new moon or full moon because of the gravitation effect on the Earth…and the next full moon is on FRIDAY. The maverick, now retired, scientist spoke out after eight powerful earthquakes struck across south Asia and the pacific in the past 80 hours, claiming hundreds of lives in Japan and Ecuador. Mr Berkland predicted on October 13, 1989, an earthquake of magnitude 3.5 to 6.0 would strike San Francisco within the next week. Four days later on...

    A group of 51 refugees were brutally assaulted outside a night club in Murmansk, Russia, after they groped and molested women at a night club Saturday. The refugees had previously been ordered to leave Norway for "bad behavior" and tried their luck in Russia. What they didn't realize when they went out clubbing in Murmansk is that Russians have less tolerance when it comes to sexual assault on local women than other European countries.

Whites don't get any nominations, and I thought it was an amazing interview. I'd never even thought of it from that standpoint.

The decision by grand jurors was the end of a lengthy investigation that was criticized by Tamir’s family and by activists, who called the shooting senseless and said the officer should have been charged with murder months ago.

Lew has decided that the new $10 note should feature a woman who was a champion for our inclusive democracy.”

    As tourists stroll between Yellowstone's 300 active geysers, taking selfies in front of thousands of bubbling, boiling mud pots and hissing steam vents, they are treading on one of the planet's greatest time bombs. The park is a supervolcano so enormous, it has puzzled geophysicists for decades, but now a research group, using seismic technology to scan its depths, have made a bombshell discovery. Yellowstone's magma reserves are many magnitudes greater than previously thought, say scientists from the University of Utah. Underneath the national park's attractions and walking paths is enough hot rock to fill the Grand Canyon nearly 14...

    North Korea is having major Internet problems, just days after President Barack Obama promised a proportional response to the devastating hacks against Sony.

According to the research firm, North Korea's Internet connectivity grew steadily worse beginning Sunday night, and then went completely offline Monday morning.

    Lawmakers visit school where lunches were tossed for kids without funds SALT LAKE CITY — Two Utah senators ate lunch at a Salt Lake elementary school Thursday to make it clear they believe no child in Utah should go hungry. The visit came after an incident Tuesday at Uintah Elementary School, where fifth-grader Sophia Isom was met by a district nutrition manager during lunch who was monitoring students' school lunch accounts. The manager took her school lunch and threw it away. "So she took my lunch away and said, 'Go get a milk,’” Sophia said. "I came back and asked,...

    NEW YORK — A television actress testified Wednesday about her real-life role in a campaign corruption scandal that has embarrassed some of the Democratic Party's biggest names. Susan Chilman told jurors at the federal trial in Manhattan of longtime fundraiser and admitted investment cheat Norman Hsu that she was completely clueless about the politicians she supported at his behest. "I didn't know who the candidates were," Chilman said. The prosecution witness — with roles in "Brothers & Sisters," "CSI Miami" and "ER" under the stage name Susan Pari — testified that in recent years she had given nearly $42,000 to...

    California collected just $7.34 billion in personal income tax payments in April, putting further stress on the state's budget. The state controller's office said the collections in April were down from $13 billion a year earlier. About a quarter of all income tax revenue is collected in April, the agency said. In addition, the dismal April means the state is falling behind the revenue forecasts incorporated into the budget deal adopted by the Legislature in February.
