A couple in China has left their two young children behind in an airport after their son—who had a fever—was banned from flying amid an outbreak of a new deadly virus, according to Chinese media. It is said the parents deserted their son and daughter by the departure gate and boarded the flight on their own in the eastern city of Nanjing, leaving airline workers and other passengers in shock.(Snip) The children were eventually allowed to board the domestic plane, reported local newspaper Yangzi Evening News. The incident came to light when a blogger posted pictures of the children on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent to Twitter.

"Home Arone." Life is cheap in the Far East.

I'm kind of curious. The medical device they're using to check for temperatures, do they wipe those off after swiping each persons forehead? Because it doesn't look like it.

The warden in charge when Jeffrey Epstein died in his jail cell is getting a cushy new supervisor's job at 'Club Fed' despite Attorney General Bill Barr's demand that he be reassigned to a desk job. Lamine N'Diaye is being reassigned to a leadership role at FCI Fort Dix, a low-security prison in Burlington County, New Jersey, two people familiar with the matter said. The move comes months after Barr ordered N'Diaye be reassigned to a desk post at the Bureau of Prisons' regional office in Pennsylvania after Epstein's death as the FBI and the Justice Department's inspector general investigated.

Ugandan climate activist Vanessa Nakate has called out racism in media after she was cropped out of a photo featuring prominent climate activists including Greta Thunberg, Loukina Tille, Luisa Neubauer and Isabelle Axelsson. Nakate made the comment in a video which has since gone viral, adding that she now understood “the definition of the word racism” for the first time in her life. The group had given a news conference in Davos on Friday when Nakate was then cropped out of a published version by the Associated Press, a US news agency.

The state attorney general is ordering all New Jersey police to stop using a powerful new facial-recognition technology that’s pulling millions of photos from social media. The order was issued Friday to county prosecutors, concerning a New York-based company called Clearview AI. “Like many people, I was troubled,” state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said about the company’s techniques, which were first reported by The New York Times. Clearview promotes itself as an effective way to track down dangerous people. It takes partial credit for the recent arrests in New Jersey of 19 men who police say tried to lure children for sex.

A North Carolina man kept a woman as a sex slave for five years, authorities said. Salvador Espinoza Escobar, 48, is accused of holding the victim—identified only as an adult female—in “sexual servitude” by withholding basic needs in exchange for forced sex acts since January 2015, according to the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office. Escobar, of Asheboro, was taken into custody after detectives got information from the National Human Trafficking Tip Line on Wednesday, sheriff’s officials said. “No information will be released regarding the victim’s identity or condition for protection and privacy,” according to a news release. “This case remains under investigation

A Chick-fil-A in Georgia has apologized after a breastfeeding mother was told to cover up, prompting multiple mothers to hold a “nurse-in” protest at the restaurant this week. Samantha McIntosh told CNN she was breastfeeding her 7-month-old daughter at a Chick-fil-A in Evans on Monday when a store manager asked her to cover up because someone had complained. Ms. McIntosh said she was wearing a nursing tank top under a long-sleeved shirt and that none of her skin was showing as she fed her child.(Snip) Her Facebook post on the matter sparked an outpouring of support,

It happened just before noon on Tuesday at the H-E-B store at W. Rundberg Lane on N. Lamar. Police responded to a call for two women fighting at the store, and another call later that one of the women was inside the H-E-B. When an officer arrived, he found 31-year-old Kisa Trinee Taylor "standing on top of a parked vehicle and doing a sexually provocative dance," according to the affidavit.

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is one of the hottest cars of the year, but this is ridiculous. Car and Driver and MotorTrend have each published images of a black 2020 Stingray propped up on bricks with its wheels removed on a Detroit street. The car was discovered at the corner of Coe Avenue and Parker Street in the city’s West Village neighborhood, about four miles from General Motors’ downtown headquarters. The car doesn’t have manufacturer’s license plates, which is odd because production of customer models isn’t supposed to begin until February. In fact, the rights to the first one off the line

One of Barack Obama’s top advisers as president says voters have a ‘chilling’ lack of interest in the impeachment case, which he blames on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s ‘cynical calculation’. David Axelrod, Mr Obama’s former chief strategist, met with a focus group of Democratic voters in Chicago on Friday in which he says impeachment “didn’t come up” until more than an hour into the discussion. When it did, the voters said they were “ready to move on” because the outcome of the Senate trial - in which Mr Trump’s team began his defence on Saturday - was a foregone

MEXICO CITY — One year ago, Mexico’s often chaotic southern border appeared relatively orderly: Mexican authorities processed thousands of U.S.-bound migrants for humanitarian visas, allowing them to travel north legally. The free-transit regimen was a drastic change of policy pushed by a new Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who had denounced his predecessors for having done what he called the dirty work of Washington in deterring migrants’ northbound passage. But this week, López Obrador’s government greeted migrants in a more hostile fashion. Mexican National Guard troops in full riot gear blocked their way and fired tear gas canisters to disperse those seeking to breach the nation’s border with Guatemala.

Rep. Adam B. Schiff arrived in the Senate this week as an impeachment trial manager, leaving the House with a trail of inaccuracies, conspiracy theories and attempts at obstruction, the record shows. Liberal media have bathed the California Democrat in praise. A CNN analyst called him “dazzling.” A Washington Post reporter tweeted that his trial argument to convict President Trump was one for the ages. Conservatives take a decidedly different view. They wonder on social media why a congressman who floated unproven conspiracies and a false dossier is leading the case against Mr. Trump, and they ask why the liberal media are so uncritical.

I remember having an argument with the mother of a young girl during the 2016 election. She thought even a symbolic victory would be an important victory, because it was important for her daughter to have a woman president to look up to. “I want her to see a woman president,” she said, “to help her believe that she could become a president herself.” It’s an oft-touted argument for representation: children need role models – successful people of their own gender or race – in order to become successful in adulthood.

President Donald Trump's defense team consistently drilled down on one key point as it began opening arguments in his impeachment trial on Saturday: the evidence against Trump is limited, at best, and he can't be impeached because the public hasn't heard direct evidence of his misconduct from him or anyone close to him.(Snip)Republicans, meanwhile, say that if the evidence against Trump is as overwhelming as House Democrats say it is, the Senate doesn't need to call new witnesses. But on Saturday, Trump's lawyers seemed to bolster Democrats' case by repeatedly claiming that they hadn't heard from a single witness who had "direct contact" with the president.

The commercial achieves this feat by turning the denigrating phrase “typical Americans” on its head and showcasing the extraordinary things that “typical Americans” do and accomplish on a daily basis. Watch: [video] The ad triggered highly positive responses from conservatives. Even some liberals suggested it could have been a campaign ad for socialist Democrat presidential candidate Sen.
