    Trump's Children Say They're Profiting Handsomely From His Presidency

    Business is good, in general—the stock market is booming, the economy is adding jobs, and consumer confidence is high. But business is really good if you happen to be a member of the Trump family. Exhibit A is Ivanka Trump’s retail business.

    New Anti-ISIS Strategy May Mean Deeper Involvement in Syria

    A new military strategy to meet President Donald Trump's demand to "obliterate" the Islamic State group is likely to deepen U.S. military involvement in Syria, possibly with more ground troops, even as the current U.S. approach in Iraq appears to be working and will require fewer changes. Details are sketchy. But recommendations due at the White House on Monday are likely to increase emphasis on nonmilitary elements of the campaign already underway, such as efforts to squeeze IS f...

    Autism detectable in brain long before symptoms appear

    Brain scans can detect autism long before any symptoms start to emerge, say scientists. The earliest that children tend to be diagnosed at present is at the age of two, although it is often later. The study, published in the journal Nature, showed the origins of autism are much earlier than that - in the first year of life. The findings could lead to an early test and even therapies that work while the brain is more malleable.

    Supernova observed just after explosion

    Supernovae are explosions that happen at the end of a massive star’s life. Even though these stars are already 10,000 times brighter than the Sun during their lifetime and even brighter in death, witnessing the early stages of these explosions is very rare. If by chance one is found a few days later, the supernova ejecta has already destroyed any information about it's immediate environment. But Ofer Yaron and colleagues had the chance to witness a supernova much earlier, providing new in...
