Democrats Sue Russia, WikiLeaks And Trump Campaign Over Election 'Conspiracy'

Updated at 6:46 p.m. EDT The Democratic National Committee filed an attention-grabbing lawsuit against the Russian government, WikiLeaks and Donald Trump's presidential campaign that says they conspired to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The suit — which faces legal obstacles because of the Justice Department's investigation into Russia's attack and the difficulties involved with suing a foreign government — develops a theory about alleged collusion between Trump's...

Beyond Beychella: The Rise Of Women Of Color On America's Biggest Festival Stage

"Thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline Coachella," Beyoncé said toward the end of her headlining set at Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival last Saturday while glistening with sweat and her waist-length, gold hair flowing in the fan-created breeze. The chart-topping Queen Bey paused for only a moment before scoffing, "Ain't that 'bout a bitch." Bey's candid acknowledgment of this elephant in the desert simultaneously silenced any doubters and ignited her Beyhive...

Nashville Police are warning residents to keep their doors locked and their eyes open for a partially nude man following a shooting early Sunday morning that left four people dead.

There is reason to believe, police say, that the suspect at large is carrying two guns that were not found during a search of the gunman's home.

We're crazy in love with all the education news — from Coachella to new findings on screen time.

Beyoncé brings HBCU pride to Coachella performance

Zoologist Lucy Cooke says humans have got it all wrong about sloths. "People think that because the animal is slow that it's somehow useless and redundant," she says. But in fact, "they are incredibly successful creatures."

Cooke is the founder of the Sloth Appreciation Society and the author of a new book called The Truth About Animals: Stoned Sloths, Lovelorn Hippos, and Other Tales from the Wild Side of Wildlife. The book aims to set the record straight on some long-held misconceptions about the animal world.

Puerto Rico Restores Electricity After This Week's Outage

Electricity has been restored in Puerto Rico following an outage on Wednesday that left the island in darkness. It was the first island-wide blackout since Hurricane Maria swept through the U.S. territory in September. A transmission line was accidentally damaged by an excavator, reported The Associated Press. After the outage, Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) said that in trying to restore power, it would prioritize hospitals, a major airport, sewer and water pumping stations and...

8 Years After Deepwater Horizon Explosion, Is Another Disaster Waiting To Happen?

Within seconds, a bright, white flash erupted on the lower deck of West Delta 105 E, an oil-production platform positioned a dozen miles off the Louisiana coast. Disoriented, one crew member found himself 10 feet away from where he had been working before he blacked out. Another likened the impact to a sledgehammer blow to his head. A third told investigators he felt like he'd been hit by an 18-wheeler, his hard hat, glasses and earplugs knocked off in the blast. For a fourth, death came...

Not Everyone Feels Welcome Camping Out In 'Third Spaces' Like Starbucks

For years, Starbucks has described its stores as a "third space" — a quasi-public place, away from home or the office, where anyone is welcome to hang out. But the rules about that space are murky. They can vary from place to place, and even store to store. The way the rules are enforced isn't always consistent, either, which is how unconscious bias and discrimination can creep in. Now, the arrests of two black men at a Starbucks store in Philadelphia last week are raising uncomfortable...

Meet The Students Who Dreamed Up Friday's National School Walkout

When Lane Murdock, a high school sophomore, heard that 17 high school students and educators had been killed in a shooting in Parkland, Fla., she says she felt numb. To her, and so many others, mass shootings can feel all too common in the U.S. "In the time I've been in high school we've had the Pulse, Las Vegas and now, [the Parkland] shooting," Murdock says. So that same day, Feb.14, Murdock started a Change.org petition that so far has received more than a quarter-million signatures. Her...

Cuba, Long Led By Castros, Hails A New President Outside The Family

Updated at 1:08 p.m. ET Miguel Mario Díaz-Canel Bermúdez has been elected president of Cuba, officially ending the Castro family's decades of domination of the country's highest office. The Communist Party formally announced the presidency's transition from Raúl Castro on Thursday, in what might better be described as a coronation than an election. In fact, if there was any surprise at all, it might be that Díaz-Canel, the 57-year-old party stalwart long expected to succeed Castro, did not...

Reducing Voters' Paperwork Might Expand The Voter Rolls

Political brawls over voting laws have consumed states across the country for the past decade. But below the surface, a movement to automatically register eligible voters to vote is rapidly gaining traction. By next year, more than a quarter of all Americans will live in states where they no longer have to fill out registration forms in order to cast a ballot. The latest state to implement automatic voter registration is California, which had been scheduled to start on Monday although it's...

'Houses Disappeared' When Tumbleweeds Rolled Into This California City

A strong breeze can toss around all sorts of detritus, but for residents of one California community on the edge of the Mojave Desert, where area gusts topped 50 mph Monday, it was tumbleweeds at the whims of the wind. Lots of tumbleweeds. "It looked like a war of tumbleweeds, like we were being invaded," Victorville resident Bryan Bagwell, 42, tells NPR. He says cleanup in Victorville, about an 85-mile drive from Los Angeles, was continuing Wednesday. Dozens of homes in his neighborhood,...

Climate Change Is Killing Coral On The Great Barrier Reef

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4v79I9czDA The Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia has seen two massive bleaching events over the span of two years. And that's led to a widespread die-off of the corals, according to a new study. Through close observations of the world's largest coral reef system, scientists are taking stock of the extent of the damage from higher water temperatures due to global warming. They mapped the patterns of heat exposure on more than 1,400 miles of reef and...

How The Pulitzer Jury Opened Its Doors To Hip-Hop

In the annals of American culture, Kendrick Lamar's unprecedented Pulitzer win in music for DAMN. will stand alongside a recent influx of hip-hop firsts: Jay-Z's 2017 induction into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, LL Cool J's 2017 Kennedy Center Honors and the entire slew of artists who — to paraphrase a George Clinton classic — helped paint the White House rap during Obama's presidency. But Lamar's Pulitzer win may constitute the first time a high-minded institution has seen fit to place an...

From The Vaults, A Showstopper: Hear Prince Perform 'Nothing Compares 2 U'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpGA0azFdCs It's already been a busy day for Prince news, as prosecutors announced that no criminal charges would be brought against Prince associates over the star's accidental death in 2016. In a bit of curious timing, Prince's estate has just released a long-lost 1984 studio recording of the singer performing his classic composition "Nothing Compares 2 U." As a find, it's significant: Prince originally wrote the track for a band he'd assembled called the...

Basketball, Marijuana And Poetry: These Police Tweet More Than Crime Alerts

Friday is April 20, a day that some people celebrate by smoking marijuana. The Police Department in Lawrence, Kan., is preparing for this week's pot holiday by sending safety tips via their official Twitter account, run by officer Drew Fennelly. Those tweets have gotten thousands of likes, and they aren't the only ones. Fennelly says that using humor serves a purpose: The funnier the tweet, the more likely the department's updates reach a wider audience. When Fennelly was a neighborhood...
