  • Georgia appeals court pauses lower-court proceedings in Trump election case

    Jun 6, 2024

    Jun 6, 2024

    Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. has offered multiple accounts of how politically charged flags came to fly outside his homes in Virginia and New Jersey - the type of display that is generally off-limits for judges, who must remain impartial and avoid even the appearance of bias as they handle cases. Since the public revelation of the flags engulfed the nation's highest court in criticism last month and prompted calls for Alito's recusal from certain cases, the justice has said it was...

    Jun 6, 2024

The Sky's game Tuesday offered no relief from the attention for Reese, who was ejected in the fourth quarter of Chicago's loss to the New York...

  • A year of record global heat has pushed Earth closer to dangerous threshold

    Jun 6, 2024

    A streak of record-setting heat that began last summer has now persisted for an entire year across the globe, researchers announced Wednesday, pushing Earth closer to a dangerous threshold that the world's nations have pledged not to cross.

  • Black workers sue General Mills, alleging discrimination at Georgia plant

    Jun 6, 2024

On the 12-foot-tall painting were three General Mills cereal mascots portraying Confederate generals, including Buzz the Bee as Stonewall Jackson.
