WASHINGTON - Federal regulators voted Thursday to allow Internet providers to speed up service for some apps and websites - and block or slow down others - in a decision repealing landmark, Obama-era regulations for broadband companies such as AT&T and Verizon.
ATLANTA - It's time to stop trying to figure it out and wondering when it will end. It's time to accept that Case Keenum is, legitimately, a standout NFL quarterback - at least for the duration of a 2017 season starved for feel-good stories on the field to distract from the turbulence occurring off it. Likewise, it now must be taken as a given that the Minnesota Vikings are here to stay, cemented as a top NFC contender with a chance to become the first NFL team ever to play a Super Bowl in the comfortable confines of its own stadium.
Native American groups have long objected to President Donald Trump's use of the nickname "Pocahontas" to deride one of his political foes, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

CBS said Tuesday that it has fired Charlie Rose "effective immediately," following an extensive Washington Post report that detailed alleged unwanted sexual advances toward women by the 75-year-old broadcaster.

Cranberries might be a staple on Thanksgiving tables, but a glut of U.S. supplies has gotten so large that fruit could be headed to the compost pile. Just as demand is hitting its seasonal peak, American processors are anxiously awaiting government approval that would allow them to turn excess fruit into fertilizer. The program would be the first of its kind for cranberries.
Charles Manson, the fiery-eyed cult master whose lemming-like followers staged a bloody two-night murder rampage in Los Angeles in 1969 that gripped the city with fear and shocked the nation, died on Sunday at a hospital in Kern County, California. He was 83.
WASHINGTON — On Thursday morning, Nov. 16, radio personality Leeann Tweeden became the latest woman to allege inappropriate sexual conduct by a powerful man, describing a 2006 incident in which she says that Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., kissed and groped her without her consent.
Ten minutes to midnight on Tuesday, Jeremy J. Van Ert stepped into a walk-in beer cooler at a Kwik Trip convenience store in Marshfield, Wisconsin. When the doors locked behind him at midnight, he decided that rather than shout for help, he would just camp out, police say. Marshfield Police Chief Rick Gramza said that his department has dealt with people who intentionally hide and get locked inside places with the purpose of committing a crime but that this case was particularly unique.
