The new Impossible Burger is so realistic the human body might not be able to tell the difference.

ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images Have you heard of the Impossible Burger? It’s widely considered to be the best vegetarian burger for folks who want a veggie burger that most closely resembles one made from meat. It’s become a massive hit in America, showing up in restaurants across the country and often selling out in popular dining spots. The founders recently unveiled the “Impossible 2.0” during the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. In fact, it’s the first ever food product to be displayed by the legendary trade show and reportedly “left the crowd stunned with its smell, texture, flavor and color — almost like a real hamburger.” And the 2.0 is such a masterful approximation of the “real thing” that …

Shareholder sues Alphabet board over handling of harassment

San Francisco (CNN Business)An Alphabet shareholder is suing the company’s board of directors, claiming it helped cover up allegations of sexual misconduct by former Google executives. The New York Times first revealed details about harassment claims against multiple executives and their exit packages in October. The Information technology news website had previously reported that Google investigated whether Rubin had an inappropriate relationship while at the company. Martin’s lawsuit says that after the board investigated Rubin over sexual harassment claims, it was directly involved with approving his $90 million exit package when Rubin left the company in 2014. Alphabet board members Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Eric Schmidt, Sundar Pichai and John Doerr are some of the defendants named in the lawsuit. …

Pentagon approves additional military support for border

(CNN)The Pentagon has approved additional military support for the Department of Homeland Security on the Southwest border, the Defense Department confirmed Monday. By the end of November the military had already placed over 10 miles of wire obstacles in Texas, Arizona and California. This support request is separate from the White House-led effort to potentially use existing Pentagon funds and personnel to help build new sections of a border wall. US troops will also continue to provide aviation support to Customs and Border Protection, which has historically involved US military aircraft flying CBP personnel to locations along the border. Defense officials had previously told CNN that the new mobile surveillance would include troops manning mobile observation posts that would involve …

When this young hockey player was bullied by racists, his hero sent him an inspirational message.

While playing hockey in Michigan, 13-year-old Ty Cornett was subjected to racial slurs and threats from other opponents, and more surprisingly, parents. The bullying started during a tournament last spring, and continued until eventually Cornett’s parents considered removing the child from hockey after an excessively bad incident earlier in the season.   But when Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban was tipped off to the bullying by the father of one of Cornett’s teammates, the professional hockey player texted Cornett a video offering the youth words of encouragement. Subban recorded the video while playing against the Detroit Red Wings in Little Caesars Arena, nearly 40 miles from Cornett’s home in Plymouth. “I can tell you this right now: As long as …

Jamal Khashoggi is still being used as a political commodity

In the 100 days since Saudi officials brutally murdered Jamal Khashoggi in their Istanbul consulate, there has been a massive international outpouring of condemnation. Yet the whereabouts of Khashoggi’s body remains unknown. The Saudis say they handed his body to “local accomplices” but refuse to name them, and Turkish investigators who have pieced together his final hours from closed-circuit TV footage have failed to fully investigate where the trail finally leads. TIME magazine names 2018 ‘Person of the Year’ But far from feeling like a leap forward in the public’s perception of what happened, it seems to throw even greater doubt over investigative efforts since the murder. Almost two weeks after Khashoggi was killed, Saudi authorities finally relented — but …

Man who tried to pay for sex loses appeal

He drove off but then returned a few minutes later and repeated the same gesture. ‘Scared and ashamed’ The judge at his trial in July last year said that because of his predatory, sexualised stalking of a woman, heartlessly putting the victim through a court hearing and showing no regrets or remorse, an immediate sentence of three months’ imprisonment was appropriate. An appeal was heard at Omagh County Court in October 2018, during which the victim was compelled to give evidence for a second time. She said she felt scared and ashamed at what had happened. She also said: “I was quite surprised as well. He is quite a handsome man.” The judge rejected the defence argument at the appeal …

China hosts surprise visit by Kim Jong Un amid US tensions

Beijing (CNN)North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this week made his fourth visit to China, arriving in the country for a three-day stay at the invitation of President Xi Jinping, according to state media. Though traffic was blocked off in Beijing in anticipation of Kim’s arrival, police in the Chinese capital appeared to be much less strict compared to the North Korean leader’s three previous visits to the country in 2018. Curious onlookers were allowed to stand on both sides of the road behind a police line as Kim’s motorcade came out from the station and drove onto the Chang’an Avenue, a main street across the center of the city from east to west. Those staying in hotel rooms on …

Twitter Users Explode Over Trump Administration’s Mexico Border Terrorists Lie

That was MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s sardonic reply to reports that President Donald Trump’s administration had wildly overstated the number of known or suspected terrorists stopped at the U.S.-Mexico border last year. This is markedly less than the “nearly 4,000” claimed by the Trump White House over the weekend. Others on Twitter, including lawmakers, joined Maddow in condemning the lie:

When your child vapes, what’s a parent to do?

(CNN)When Sonya Kennedy learned that her 12-year-old son, Ryder, had tried vaping, she was “mortified.” “It’s a bad habit that I started realizing parents didn’t know about,” she said. Health experts say parents whose kids are vaping often don’t know what to do or where to turn for help. While federal authorities grapple with how to regulate e-cigarettes on a broad scale and while leading tobacco company Altria invests billions in e-cigarette maker Juul, parents are scrambling at home to deal with nicotine dependence — or to prevent their kids from getting hooked on something that’s ubiquitous at many schools. Some are even approaching addiction rehab programs in hopes of weaning their kids off these products. “It’s all over social …

Supreme Court Rules Against Mystery Company With Possible Ties To Mueller Probe

The Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to block the subpoena and the federal appeals court in Washington issued an opinion soon after that revealed the size of the fine, but little additional information about the company or the foreign government that owns it. A three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in Washington had in December upheld the issuance of the subpoena and a contempt order issued by a district court judge when the company failed to comply. The panel’s opinion on Tuesday elaborated on its reasons for ruling against the company, rejecting its arguments that it was protected by a federal law that generally protects foreign governments from lawsuits in the United States. The unsigned opinion from the appellate …

An all-female Marine platoon just made history alongside the men at boot camp.

MCRD Parris Island, SC /Flickr On Friday, January 11, about 50 female Marines will train alongside their male counterparts at a facility in Parris Island, South Carolina. This marks the first time in the history of the U.S. Marine Corps that men and women have trained together at boot camp. However, the move is more out of necessity than part of a larger attempt by the Marines to integrate. “A lack of female recruits during the winter training cycle made it more practical to shut down the all-female battalion at Parris Island and roll the remaining 50 women into a male battalion,” The New York Times wrote. In the past, Marine Corps leaders have said that by training separately from …
