Music mogul Russell Simmons has been accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl following a casting call in 1991 as movie producer Brett Ratner allegedly watched and did nothing to help.
DEAR CAROLYN: There is a group of women with whom I’ve taken weekend trips once or twice a year over the last six years. Back in May, we tossed around possible trip ideas for the summer. Nothing was decided. I saw two of these friends (the third lives in another state) a couple of times in June and July, and none of us brought up a discussion of a trip. Fast forward to when I opened my Instagram feed to see the three of them on vacation together. I was floored and devastated. None of them had invited me or even told me about it. I worked through the hurt and anger I was feeling in therapy, in my 12-step program (Adult Children of Alcoholics) and through journaling. I came to realize these friendships
Mayfield stepped forward to exchange "pleasantries" and no one obliged him.
UpdatedI It's only been a year since Donald Trump was elected president, but some people already want him out of the White House. The past 12 months have been long, dramatic and full of developments that critics say could lead Trump to end his term early-and they may be converging. As of Friday, Trump's average job approval rating was just over 38 percent, according to RealClearPolitics.
It was a Friday night in early November and Fox News host Tucker Carlson was preaching to the camera about leftists sowing “racial divisions” throughout America. Reacting to an article in The Washington Post about a principal at a Maryland high school investigating an incident in which someone posted fliers proclaiming, “It’s Okay to Be White.” Carlson claimed to see evidence of an anti-white agenda at play in the Post report. The segment was typical Fox News fodder, but with an exception: Carlson was pushing forward a meme promoted by white supremacists, and he was doing so exactly as they had intended him to do it.
North Korean special forces have evolved from a nuisance force designed to stage attacks in the enemy’s rear into something far more dangerous. One of the most vital parts of North Korea’s war machine is one that relies the most on so-called “soldier power” skills. North Korea has likely the largest special-forces organization in the world, numbering two hundred thousand men-and women-trained in unconventional warfare.

"He told me I'd never work in this town again"
Outside of Lee’s Tavern, in the Dongan Hills neighborhood of Staten Island, a 1970s Thunderbird was wired to explode. It was October 2017, but Hancock Street looked like it had time-tripped to 1975 - and morphed into Detroit. The facade of Lee’s had been done up with an awning that read “Nemo’s.” Next door, Karina’s barbershop had been adorned with a hand-painted logo on its window. Men in period-appropriate garb strolled the block. And Martin Scorsese orchestrated the whole scene. The director has been shooting his next movie, “The Irishman,” around the tri-state area. A boat was blown up in Hempstead Harbor on Long Island, and stars Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci broke bread in character at the
Starting to collect Social Security early will result in smaller checks, but that's much less of a problem than you think. Here's why you might want to retire early.
My father did me a big favor: He fired me. On Sept. 28, 2008, in a scene that millions of viewers of the “American Chopper” reality TV show watched on Discovery Channel, my father booted me from the Orange County Choppers custom motorcycle-building company, of which I was part-owner. We had plenty of blowups during filming - and, truthfully, for years before Discovery placed our combustible, dysfunctional relationship on television for the world to see. That day might not have even been our biggest argument. But it was the most significant. And that turned out to be one of the best things that could have happened to me at the time. It just took a while to realize that. Not until I got out from
On Black Friday - the most hectic day in retail - there are plenty of things store associates would love to tell shoppers. But, whether it's because there's just no time or for fear of repercussions, there are some things they can't tell you. And some of these things, while perhaps controversial, could end up being a service to shoppers or the workers themselves, if only someone would just say something. So we asked a number of Black Friday workers to weigh in on the one thing they'd love to tell customers but can't.
The president’s family business is worth about one-tenth of the value he has claimed, according to an analysis of the latest figures he has filed with the federal government.

Although we could hear back in 25 years, it’s unlikely we will, Douglas Vakoch, president of Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence (METI) International, told New Scientist. A person dressed as an alien attends the Mars Encounter exhibit at the Chabot Space and Science Center August 26, 2003 in Oakland, California. If we hear back, there’s limited guidance in place on how to communicate with the extraterrestrial beings, according to Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer for the SETI (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute.

An Oklahoma man who was suffering from a hand injury was allegedly given a fentanyl patch while he was drinking and partying to deal with the pain, but family and friends say it killed him.
Nadia Murad grew up dreaming of owning a beauty salon. The youngest of 11 children in a Yazidi family in northwest Iraq, she took photographs of all the brides in her tiny village, studying their makeup and hair. Her favorite was of a brunette woman with curls piled high atop her head. But after ISIS overtook her village in August 2014, that dream died. Murad was captured, enslaved, sold, raped and tortured alongside thousands of her people in an effort to decimate their religion. ISIS didn’t entirely succeed, however. Murad, 24, managed a miraculous escape and is now a Nobel Peace Prize nominee fighting for freedom and justice for her people. Her new book, “The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity
