Myeshia Johnson gave her first TV interview this morning to George Stephanopoulos, saying what hurt her most when…
All five living former U.S. presidents gathered in College Station, Texas, on Saturday evening to pay tribute to America's tradition of volunteerism and raise money for the victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. At one point, all five ex-presidents - Jimmy Carter, George. H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama - were on stage, and Carter spoke, then Clinton. While Clinton was talking about the enduring disaster in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the younger Bush leaned over to Obama, making him laugh. You can watch the moment at the 3:35 mark: Or you can wonder what was so dang funny in this silent clip of the moment Obama cracked up and Bush looked on mischievously:
Parents in a certain Georgia community might now be a little nervous for back-to-school season. On a Fall morning in 2015, East Paulding Middle School's sign welcomed the return of students with one glaring error: "We Are Glad You Are Hear." After area resident Michael Graham drove past the sign, he snapped a photo and shared it on local News Radio 106.7's Facebook page. It's since been passed around across the nation, and it's serving as the ultimate lesson in proofreading . . . and that spellcheck can't always save you. Hear, hear!
Melania Trump is lonely and obsessed with Michelle Obama. At least in Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s version of events anyway. The Nigerian author has penned a short story for the The New York Times’ style magazine, T, which paints the first lady-referred to throughout only as “Mrs T”-as the reluctant wife of the president who displays an unease with her political fame. And she’s a little bit racist, too. Adichie’s “micronovel,” Janelle Asked to the Bedroom, envisions a conversation between a forlorn Trump and her pilates instructor Janelle. The story was published on the Times website and on the T magazine Instagram page. In the short story, Janelle is unusually called to join Mrs T in her bedroom,

A man shocked onlookers when he pushed a woman onto train tracks at a station in Hong Kong, causing her to fall and hit her head. The harrowing CCTV footage shows him strolling past a woman in a hi-viz vest before knocking her onto the tracks. After falling, she looks up at her attacker. The 59-year-old unnamed cleaner was shoved onto the rails by a man who then slowly walks away from the scene. According to the South China Morning Post, she had been on platform No 5 at the Yuen Long terminal for the Light Rail’s 761P route at about 10.30am. She waved to an acquaintance before being shoved onto the tracks. No train was passing at the time, but the terrifying possibility clearly resonated with social media users, who have shared the video thousands of times. According to the South China Morning Post, the man was arrested on suspicion of assault.

Less than a minute into Sunday's game at Heinz Field, Vontaze Burfict kicked Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix with both feet, raising the possibility of yet another suspension for the Cincinnati Bengals linebacker. Nix had blocked Burfict into a pile on the second play of the game. While on his back, Burfict aimed both his feet at Nix's face mask. He appeared to land a glancing blow. Line judge Mark Perlman was close to the play but declined to call a penalty. (NFL rules allow for an unsportsmanlike conduct call for kicking an opponent, "even if no contact is made.") Although a penalty might have been in order, typically a kick would not raise the possibility of a suspension. But Burfict

An undercover Muslim FBI operative opened up in an interview on Sunday about his experience working in terror cells in an effort to relay information to the bureau, saying he is "appalled" by the "animals" working to attack the U.S. "We're not at war with Islam.

Here's a thought, maybe don't tell a pro wrestler that wrestling isn't real. Chances are, as a wrestler, they are fully aware of what wrestling is.

A group of friends swimming at Hahei Beach, New Zealand on October 21 got a major shock when a pod of killer whales wandered close to shore and sent the friends running out of the water. “[We] spotted three orcas swimming about 50 metres offshore,” Kelly Lindsay, who filmed the encounter, said. “[We] weren’t aware of the orca at this stage due to the waves; it wasn’t until one of the orca branched away from the pod towards the shore that onlookers started shouting out to the swimmers.” TVNZ reported four orcas were spotted near the shore Coromandel Beach, where Lindsay and friends were enjoying their long weekend. A lifeguard said the whales come around to feed on stingrays and this particular pod got about 10 metres away from the beach. It this footage, the group of friends panic and run out of the water as the killer whale’s black fin emerges out of the water a few metres away from them. Their delighted screams can be heard off-screen before the orca begins waving its flippers out of shallow waters. “[When] the fin emerged from the water… they turned and ran back to the shore in excitement and shock,” Lindsay said. “It was a once in a life time experience to see such a beautiful animal up close in the wild. We won’t be forgetting this any time soon.” Credit: Kelly Lindsay via Storyful
