  • Raisi's death adds to volatility as conflict shakes the Middle East

    May 21, 2024

    The death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in a helicopter crash Sunday quickly set in motion a leadership transition that officials insisted would leave the Islamic republic in steady hands and would probably lead to little change in the country's direction, analysts said. "The Iranian nation shouldn't be worried," said Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader, according to state media. Raisi was seen as an enforcer of Khamenei's edicts, rather than an independent actor, according to...

  • Prosecutors rest in Trump trial, and Judge Merchan erupts at a witness

    May 21, 2024

    NEW YORK - Prosecutors rested their case against former president Donald Trump on Monday, a momentous day in the month-long trial that was quickly overshadowed by the judge's angry dressing-down of a witness he thought was being disrespectful. For most of the day, the trial seemed to be winding down; defense lawyers indicated they did not plan to call Trump as a witness, and might finish presenting their case in a few hours. That schedule suddenly changed when their second witness, lawyer...

  • How cockroaches came to rule the world

    May 21, 2024

    The world's most widespread type of cockroach - a tiny, tan pest called the German cockroach - is at this moment crawling through countless buildings, hiding in the dark nooks of hotel rooms, restaurant kitchens and, if you're unlucky, your own home - anywhere it can squeeze its little body and scavenge for the crumbs we drop. Yet at the same time, when scientists search for its natural habitat, they can't find it. It's not native to any wilderness in Germany. In fact, it doesn't seem to have...

    May 21, 2024

  • Inside the Timberwolves' record Game 7 comeback that dethroned the Nuggets

    May 21, 2024

    DENVER - The most euphoric day in the history of the Minnesota Timberwolves - an NBA franchise that has long been on a first-name basis with misery - began as a mess. Anthony Edwards was engulfed by the Denver Nuggets' persistent double teams. Rudy Gobert kept trying to punish smaller defenders with nothing to show for his efforts. Karl-Anthony Towns couldn't find the range on his usually reliable three-point shot. And most of the Timberwolves' role players looked overwhelmed by a menacing...

  • Partisan meltdown brings Minnesota's legislative session to a bitter end

    May 21, 2024

    Minnesota legislators were more than a month into a quiet session when the unexpected happened: Uber and Lyft threatened to leave the Twin Cities over an ordinance enacted by the Minneapolis City Council, and a Democratic state senator was arrested and charged with felony first-degree burglary. The two events would upend the rest of the DFL-controlled body's session. Democrats scrambled to pass a bill that would prevent the rideshare companies from leaving parts of the state, causing other...

  • Minneapolis facing $21.6 million budget hole

    May 21, 2024

    Minneapolis is facing a budget hole of $21.6 million next year - and that's just to keep things as they are, officials revealed Monday. The spending gap, the result of federal pandemic funds drying up amid rapidly rising labor costs, threatens to spawn stiff residential property tax increases, budget officials told City Council members. The looming shortfall was telegraphed by Mayor Jacob Frey earlier this month, when he said it appeared to be almost impossible to stick with his planned...

  • Target cuts prices on thousands of basic items to lure budget shoppers away from Walmart

    May 21, 2024

    Target will slash prices on thousands of everyday basics from bread to diapers this summer in an attempt to appeal to cash-strapped consumers and compete with its discount rival Walmart. The Monday announcement came just a couple of days before Target releases its first financials for the year Wednesday and less than a week after Walmart's strong earnings shot its shares to a record high as the budget retailer continues to gain more affluent shoppers who are typically Target's demographic....

  • US pediatricians reverse decades-old advice against HIV-positive mothers breastfeeding

    May 21, 2024

    People with HIV can breastfeed their babies, as long as they are taking medications that effectively suppress the virus that causes AIDS, a top U.S. pediatricians' group said Monday in a sharp policy change. The new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics reverses recommendations it had in place since the start of the HIV epidemic in the 1980s. It recognizes that routinely prescribed drugs can reduce the risk of transmitting HIV via breast milk to less than 1%, said Dr. Lisa Abuogi, a...

    May 21, 2024

    Three children all named "John Doe" allegedly received free food. So did a child named "Friday Donations," month after month. And a child named "Getsaname Hester" was listed more than a dozen times in attendance rosters at food distribution sites run by defendants in the first Feeding Our Future trial. None of those names matched the names of students enrolled at 20 public school districts across Minnesota, an IRS special agent, Joshua Parks, testified Monday in the high-profile criminal trial...

  • Beware of Those Who Speak with 'Forked Tongues'

    May 21, 2024

    Donald Trump's criminal trial in New York, where he faces 34 counts of falsifying business records to hide a 2016 hush money payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, was rife with liars last week. On the witness stand was Michael Cohen, an admitted liar who claims that part of his job was to be Trump's so-called fixer for years. Now that Cohen turned on his old boss, he is the prosecutor's key witness. Outside of the court, GOP members of Congress - including the speaker of the House, the...
