  • Flake, On Hot Mic, Says GOP Will Be “Toast” If It’s The Party Of Trump And MooreFlake, On Hot Mic, Says GOP Will Be “Toast” If It’s The Party Of Trump And Moore

    PHOENIX, Ariz (CBSNews) — Outspoken Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona was heard on a hot mic Saturday (Nov. 18) saying the Republican Party will be “toast” if it is defined by figures like President Trump and Alabama Republican Roy Moore. Flake, whose comments were caught on a microphone of ABC local affiliate KNXV, was speaking with a friend at the time after finishing a town hall on tax reform. “[If we] become the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump, we are toast,” Flake is overheard saying to Mesa, Arizona, Mayor John Giles. From the local station’s cut, it isn’t entirely clear how Flake began the sentence, but Flake’s office told the station he used the words, “if we” before the hot mic picked up his comments. KNXV’s camera began to roll mid-sentence. It isn’t the first time Flake has criticized Moore, Mr. Trump or the Republican Party as a whole. Flake had criticized the president for weeks before announcing he will not run for re-election in 2018, saying he “will not be complicit or silent” about the direction of the GOP. He has called the president’s behavior “dangerous” for democracy. After multiple women came forward accusing Moore of inappropriately pursuing or sexually touching them when they were teens, Flake said he would “run to the polling place to vote for the Democrat” if he was an Alabama voter. The accusations against Moore have thrown the GOP into a political crisis, weeks ahead of the special Dec. 12 election between Moore and Democrat Doug Jones. Moore has only intensified his attacks against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, The Washington Post — which first reported the allegations — and his accusers themselves. The accusations against Moore have also put the White House in a difficult situation politically, as at least 16 women have accused Mr. Trump of behaving inappropriately towards them. Mr. Trump has yet to personally address the accusations against Moore, although White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has said he believes Moore will do the “right thing” and step aside “if” the allegations are true. Sanders has refused to answer further questions about the president’s own accusers.

    FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) —  Fayetteville police arrested a man for brandishing and shooting a firearm in the parking lot of a bar on Dickson Street early Saturday (Nov. 18). A call came in about a shooting that happened behind Smoke & Barrel at 324 W. Dickson Street at 2:42 a.m., according to a preliminary police report. Police arrived to the scene and found four spent shell casings fired from a .22 caliber handgun.  A witness, who also works at Smoke & Barrel, told police it was closing time and he was outside beating a rug against a rail to remove the dust.  Three men leaving the food court, one later identified as Jalen Jarel Lacy, 23, said the sound of the beating rug was similar to gunshots.  Lacy said, “I’m gonna’ let off some,” and displayed a gun under his hooded jacket, the report stated. Lacy fired the gun at least four times and then left through the food court, according to a police statement. The caller described Lacy as a black male wearing a blue hoodie with white lettering, dark jeans and had a beard. Additional officers helped search for the alleged shooter and the other two men.    The report states, the trio were soon found near the intersection of Dickson Street and West Avenue, and that officers also found a black handgun in Lacy’s possession. Lacy told officers he was holding the gun for a friend, but denied discharging the gun. Lacy was arrested for disorderly conduct, carrying a weapon and discharging a firearm in city limits. He was taken to the Washington County Jail and booked. A few hours later he posted a $965 bond and was released. An online search shows that Lacy, from Little Rock, was arrested in Pulaski County in June, 2017, on charges of failure to pay fine, fleeing, public intoxication and theft of services.

  • Blazing Meteorite Lights Up Arctic Sky With “Glow Of 100 Full Moons”Blazing Meteorite Lights Up Arctic Sky With “Glow Of 100 Full Moons”

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) —  A blazing fireball lit up the dark skies of Arctic Finland for five seconds, giving off what scientists said was “the glow of 100 full moons” and igniting hurried attempts to find the reported meteorite. Finnish experts were scrambling to calculate its trajectory and find where it landed, according to Tomas Kohout of the University of Helsinki’s physics department, who said Thursday night’s fireball “seems to have been one of the brightest ones.” It produced a blast wave that felt like an explosion about 6:40 p.m. and could also be seen in northern Norway and in Russia’s Kola peninsula, he told the Associated Press on Saturday (Nov. 18). Footage captured by Aurora Service Tours showed the bright flash over the night sky. It might have weighed about 220 pounds, according to Nikolai Kruglikov of Yekaterinburg’s Urals Federal University. “We believe it didn’t disintegrate but reached a remote corner of Finland,” Kohout said, adding that any search plans for the meteorite must face the fact that “right now we don’t have much daylight” — four hours, to be precise. The Norwegian meteorite network said the fireball “had the glow of 100 full moons” and likely was going northeast, perhaps “to the Norwegian peninsula of Varanger,” north of where the borders of Russia, Finland and Norway meet. Kohout said scientists looked forward to any space debris they can get their hands on. “We are happy to recover (it) since this is a unique opportunity to get otherwise inaccessible space material,” said Kohout. “This is why it’s worth it to search for them.” Viktor Troshenkov of the Russian Academy of Sciences told the Tass news agency that the fireball could be part of a prolific meteor shower known as the Leonids, which peaks at this time of year. He said he felt Thursday’s fireball likely wasn’t the sole meteorite but others maybe were not seen due to thick clouds elsewhere. Troshenkov told Tass that meteor showers can be even stronger. The Leonids reach their maximum once every 33 years — and the last time that happened was in 1998, he said. Amateur astronomers in the Arctic then saw about 1,000 meteors, 40 meteorites and one fireball in just one night. In 2013, a meteorite streaked across the Russian sky and exploded over the Ural Mountains with the power of an atomic bomb, its sonic blasts shattering countless windows and injuring about 1,100 people. Many were cut by flying glass as they flocked to windows, curious about what had produced such a blinding flash of light. The 2013 Chelyabinsk meteorite was estimated to be about 10 tons when it entered the Earth’s atmosphere at a hypersonic speed of at least 33,000 mph. It shattered into pieces about 18-32 miles above the ground but some meteorite chunks were found in a Russian lake. A meteoroid is smaller than a kilometer, and often so small that when it enters the Earth’s atmosphere it vaporizes and never reaches the ground. A meteor is a flash of light caused by a meteoroid that fails to get through the Earth’s atmosphere. If part of it does survive, that’s called a meteorite. Asteroids are generally larger chunks of rock that come from the asteroid belt located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.

  • Sugar Addiction – Why Carbs, Not Fats, Are The ProblemSugar Addiction – Why Carbs, Not Fats, Are The Problem

    ST. LOUIS -- Some doctors say sugar may be the number one killer in America right now. That may sound like a stretch, but you can see why they make that claim. Diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and obesity can all be partially attributed to too much sugar. Mike Norton, 51, had been an athlete most of his life. He thought he was doing everything right with diet and exercise, but then he suffered a heart attack just over five years ago. “I consumed carbs all the time, not knowing that they were bad for you until I had some medical issues, then I found out otherwise,” he said. Norton was a ticking time bomb. “I know factually it was my diet,” he said. Norton thought he was eating healthy: low fat, low calories, but loads of carbs – which means lots of sugar. “Load up on pasta before a run or a ride,” he said. “So that’s what I did and I did that for decades. After I finished eating a heavy carb meal, within an hour I was hungry, so I would eat more. And it was self-perpetuating.” That is one of the main symptoms of a carb addict. You can't stop eating, especially after a high carb big meal, because carbs turn into sugar. If some sugar sensitive people have just one piece of candy, they have intense cravings for more. So after his health scare, Norton cut out all carbs and started eating fattier, more calorie dense foods. “My energy level is much higher. My mental acuity. My weight has gone down about 25 pounds and I have sustained that weight loss,” he said. And his test results back that up. “I was a pre-diabetic. I’m not anymore. My cholesterol is down tremendously since being on this diet,” Norton said. Dr. Rick Lehman, Orthopedic Surgeon and Director with the U.S. Center for Sports Medicine in Kirkwood, works with athletes every day. And he agrees that sugar addiction is a big problem. “I think sugar in and of itself is one of the worst foods you can possibly eat,” he said. Research shows that sugar affects the brain in the same ways as cocaine or heroin. Scans show identical areas of the brain light up when exposed to drugs or sugar. “Sugar addiction is really no different than opioid addiction. People have looked at all these things that are similar to opioid addiction,” Lehman said. “It’s a real effort, it’s not as easy as saying, ‘Hey, I’m going to eat junk food.’” So how did all the companies get it so wrong with the low-fat craze? The American Medical Association Journal reported last year sugar companies paid researchers in the 1960s and 1970s to downplay the role sugar has on health. And with that research, the blame shifted to fatty foods. So to make low fat foods taste better, sugar-based additives were put in most everything. “When we all believed that fats are bad and carbs were good, so we were eating low-fat cookies and low-fat food, and what happened to America? We got immense. We got giant,” Lehman said. And for people like Norton, who have cut carbs out, life has gotten so much sweeter. “For me personally, it’s all about quality of life. I now have the ability to exercise at not quite the intensity I once did, but without worrying about having a heart attack,” Norton said. “So for me, that gave me a level of freedom that I didn’t have prior to being on this diet.” Of course, some say that sugar addiction is a cop-out for people who simply lack the will power to say no to certain foods. Doctors said that's the same excuse made in the 70s as research started coming out about smoking. When you engineer foods to make you dependent upon them, you can really see how hard it is for some people to stop.
