Assassination of John F. Kennedy: Assassination of John F. Kennedy, mortal shooting of the 35th president of the United States in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. His accused killer was Lee Harvey Oswald, who was himself murdered before he could stand trial, and the death of Kennedy has long been the subject of speculation and conspiracy theories.

More Pa. Kmart, Sears Locations On Latest List Of Closures « CBS Pittsburgh

More Kmart and Sears locations in Pennsylvania are on the company’s latest list of closures.

Sears Holdings (SHLD), the bankrupt parent company of the two retailers, said Thursday that 11 Kmart locations and 29 Sears stores will close their doors in February 2019 — adding to the nearly 200locations the company has already said will shut down in coming months.

The closures are part of Sears Holdings’ efforts to drastically reduce costs and find a viable way forward as it moves through bankruptcy proceedings. The company has been struggling for several years and is drowning in debt.

Liquidation sales at the 40 locations “are expected to begin late next week,” the company said.

Woolsey Fire Burns In Malibu: Hollywood Takes Cover | Hollywood Reporter

The Woolsey fire kept up its westward onslaught late Friday afternoon, destroying houses, shutting down freeways and consuming tens of thousands of acres in its brutal rush toward the Pacific Ocean.

Fueled by strong Santa Ana winds and an excessive build-up of dry brush in the Santa Monica Mountains, the fire had consumed upwards of 35,000 acres and growing, and forced the evacuation of some 90,000 homes. California’s Governor-elect Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency on Friday, on behalf of outgoing Governor Jerry Brown.

With Megyn Kelly Gone, NBC’s ‘Today’ Show Viewers Return

In what must be considered an unwelcome twist for Megyn Kelly and the team haggling over her severance package from NBC News, ratings for the Today show’s third hour have measurably improved since she was summarily dropped from the program amid the “blackface” debacle.

This latest development is unlikely to enhance the former Fox News star’s negotiating leverage as her high-powered Hollywood attorney, Bryan Freedman, tries to persuade NBC’s upper management—including NBC News Chairman Andy Lack and his boss, NBC chief executive Stephen Burke—to maximize Kelly’s payout, midway through a three-year contract reportedly worth $69 million.

Scientists Spy On Bees, See Harmful Effects Of Common Insecticide : NPR

A team of researchers peered inside bumblebee colonies and spied on insects individually labelled with a tiny tag to figure out exactly how exposure to a common insecticide changes their behavior in the hive.

They found that the insecticide — from a controversial group called neonicotinoids — made the bees more sluggish and antisocial, spending more time on the periphery of the hive. It also made them less-attentive parents, according to research published Thursday in the journal Science.
