Rookie officer, 22, dies after traffic stop shooting – CBS News

Officer Justin Terney was shot several times late Sunday and died after undergoing surgery overnight, Tecumseh Assistant Police Chief J.R. Kidney said.

The man who fired on Terney was also shot multiple times and in intensive care Monday morning, Kidney said. Police have not released his identity.

Terney pulled over a vehicle about 11:30 p.m. Sunday in Tecumseh, 35 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, according to police. A woman was driving, and Terney called dispatchers to see if a male passenger had any outstanding warrants.

At that point, the man ran toward some nearby woods, Kidney said. Terney chased the man on foot and used a stun gun, but that failed to stop him. The man then shot at Terney, who returned fire, he said.

Both wounded men were taken to OU Medical Center.

Merkel celebrates German election win, challenger deflated

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday celebrated an encouraging win for her conservatives in a state election, declaring that her party has “every chance” in upcoming votes. Her center-left challenger in Germany’s national election later this year vowed not to be put off his stride by a deflating result.

Merkel’s Christian Democrats easily beat challenger Martin Schulz’s center-left Social Democrats in Saarland state on Sunday. A much tighter race had been expected after the Social Democrats were boosted in polls by nominating Schulz, a former European Parliament president but a newcomer to national politics, in January.

The Benewah County Sheriff’s Office issued the report on the accident, but did not report any evidence of a Sasquatch, NBC Montana reported.

Josh Earnest joins NBC, MSNBC – Orlando Sentinel

By Hal BoedekerContact Reporter Orlando Sentinel

Here’s a career path that Sean Spicer can keep in mind: Josh Earnest, who was White House press secretary for President Barack Obama, has joined NBC News and MSNBC as a political analyst.

He made his debut Monday morning on NBC’s “Today” and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

On “Today,” Earnest said the Republicans’ failure to repeal Obamacare shows that governing is more difficult in many ways than campaigning. He also faulted Donald Trump for not trying to build bipartisan legislation and said the American people expect the president to solve problems.

Earnest urged Democrats to use their leverage to make progress on their terms.

“They don’t have to fold to Republicans right now. They’re playing a strong hand,” he told Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie.

Here’s why United banned girls with leggings from a flight – NY Daily News

The United Airlines leggings ban that sent online outrage soaring on Sunday is part of the company’s dress code — one that apparently isn’t so friendly to women travelers.

After a traveler tweeted about girls being barred from a Minneapolis-bound flight for wearing leggings, United tried — and failed — to explain away the ensuing vitriol.

As the social media onslaught raged, United made sure to make this distinction clear.

“Like most companies, we have a dress code that we ask employees and pass riders to follow,” United spokesman Jonathan Guerin said in a media statement.

Thousands flee as Cyclone Debbie bears down on Australia | Reuters

Thousands of Australians abandoned their homes as a powerful cyclone bore down on coastal towns in Queensland on Monday, while others ignored authorities’ advice to evacuate with winds forecast to reach up to 300 km per hour (185 mph).

Cyclone Debbie is a forecast to strengthen to a Category four storm before it makes landfall in the northeast state early on Tuesday, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology said.

State Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk warned it would be the most powerful storm to hit the country since Cyclone Yasi in 2011, which destroyed homes, shredded crops and devastated island resorts.

Sorry Environmentalists, DNA Causes 66% Of Cancers | Science 2.0

If you read the claims of environmental groups, trace levels of chemicals are the source of most cancers, even if they are well below harmful levels, due to vague claims of “bioaccumulation.” If you read the recent claims of the EPA, air pollution is causing acute deaths, even though the United States has some of the cleanest air in the world and no one can find any deaths it has caused during the entire existence of the EPA.

What to believe? Try science. Instead of being caused by corporations, the overwhelmingly majority of cancerous mutations are caused by DNA. Most of the rest are caused by lifestyle choices, such as smoking or obesity. Only a small number can be traced to actual environmental factors, according to a numerical model based on DNA sequencing and epidemiological data from around the world.

Jeannette could furlough up to 10 teachers | TribLIVE

As many as 10 employees of the Jeannette City School District could be furloughed as officials contend with shrinking enrollment and a 2017-18 budget shortfall of almost $1 million.

“Up to this point, we’ve been able to find ways to make the revenues and expenditures match,” said Superintendent Matthew Hutcheson. “We’re now at a point where I don’t know what the answer is. I don’t know how we address the shortfalls.”
