    Outside the Morgan County fair in McConnelsville, in a rural swath of Ohio that fervently backed U.S. President Donald Trump in last year’s election, ticket seller John Wilson quietly counts off a handful of disappointments with the man he helped elect. The 70-year-old retired banker said he is unhappy with infighting and turnover in the White House. He does not like Trump’s penchant for traveling to his personal golf resorts.

    “Prophet of God” Will Spend Decades in Jail for Sexually Abusing Child Brides

    Lee Kaplan, the so-called “prophet of God” who sexually abused six young girls he claimed were his wives, will spend between 30 and 87 years in prison. Kaplan was convicted back in June on 17 counts of child sex abuse for molesting the six sisters, five of whom were still underage at the time of the trial. He convinced a destitute Amish family to “gift” him their daughters based on his divine claims. At sentencing, the judge reportedly called Kaplan’s behavior “corrupt, perverted, atrocious.”

    Specific gene and intestinal bacteria work together to ward off Type 1 diabetes

    Keeping the immune system in balance is no small feat. It must remain keenly alert to spot and disarm foreign invaders and smart enough to recognize the body’s own tissues and organs to spare them from a misdirected attack — a mistaken response known as autoimmunity.
