    We've lost sight of how appalling Trump's "Obama tapped my phones" accusation is

    In the day-to-day crush of news, it’s easy to lose perspective. And this year especially, it’s easy for the abnormal to become normal. So let’s be clear: If President Trump truly does have no evidence to back up his accusation that President Obama tapped his phones — as increasingly seems to be the case — he has viciously slandered his predecessor with a bogus accusation.

    Swedish kids to learn computer coding and how to spot fake news in primary school

    Swedish kids are set to learn programming from their first year of primary school, as the country's government introduces an improved digital competence aspect to the curriculum designed to make the tech savvy Swedes even better with computers. Sweden has a reputation for being a leading nation in the tech industry, but rather than resting on its laurels, the plan is for kids to be exposed to the nuts and bolts of technology at an earlier age, according to education minister Gustav Fridolin...

    ‘Simply not true’: The Weather Channel schools Trump EPA chief’s bogus climate claims

    Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt drew widespread condemnation from the scientific community this week when he said he didn’t believe carbon dioxide was a prime contributor to climate change. “I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there’s tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it’s a primary contributor to the global warming that we see,” the EPA bos...

    Bernie Sanders: Remove free healthcare for politicians and their families

    Several years ago, my dad got the news that he had cancer. Sadly, he passed away. My dad had a job at the time, but his employer did not cover him, and without coverage, he avoided going to the doctor until it was too late. As Congress and President Trump try to pass a new healthcare law, I'm reminded of my father and whether he would have made it if he had early access to cost-effective health care. Affordable health care is in decline as premiums and health costs increase at exponential r...

    Smugglers using drones to deliver contraband to prisoners

    As drones become more accessible, Channel 9 has learned that more smugglers are using them to sneak contraband into prisons. Inmates are able to receive phones to order hits on witnesses or rivals, and to keep running criminal organizations. They can also get weapons from the drones. Even a small drone is fairly noisy, so it may seem far-fetched that criminals can pull this off without guards finding out. But smugglers and inmates know the lay of the land and they’re finding that window of opp...

    How Foxconn’s broken pledges in Pennsylvania cast doubt on Trump’s jobs plan

    For some residents of this small city, there was something familiar about Foxconn’s recently announced plan to hire up to 50,000 U.S. workers, one of the many hiring pledges from companies rounded up by President Trump in the first weeks of his administration. The only difference was the scale. In 2013, Foxconn’s chairman sent a jolt through this state capital when he said his company — best known for making Apple iPhones in China — would invest $30 million and hire 500 workers for a new...

But she has cerebral palsy and severe autism, which in her case causes compulsive self-injurious behavior that began with she was 4 years old.

    Five HIV patients left 'virus-free' with no need for daily drugs in early vaccine trials

    A new vaccine-based treatment for HIV has succeeded in suppressing the virus in five patients, raising hopes further research could help prevent Aids without the need for daily drugs. Researchers combined two innovative HIV vaccines with a drug usually used to treat cancer in the trial, conducted over three years at the IrsiCaixa Aids Research Institute in Barcelona. After receiving the treatment, the virus was undetectable in five out of 24 participants and its spread was stopped by their immun...
