LONDON—At the 80th birthday party of comedian Joey Adams in the ballroom of an upmarket hotel overlooking Central Park in 1991, Donald Trump and Imelda Marcos sat side by side; two vulgar icons of ’80s greed and ambition.

Imelda and her husband Ferdinand Marcos had been ousted from power five years earlier by a popular uprising in the Philippines where people had grown sick of their corruption and brutality. Trump was a loud-mouthed but ultimately powerless New York real estate mogul.

A 25-year-old man’s face was severely disfigured after a vape pen exploded in his mouth ripping off a chunk of his flesh, a lawsuit says.

David Bishop required 65 stitches in his face after the lithium battery in his e-cigarette exploded in May 2018, blowing pieces of the device into his face and splashing him with battery acid that burned his hand, mouth, and tongue.

Bishop, of Concordia, Tennessee, sued three companies involved in selling the vape pen and battery in October, and the lawsuit was transferred to federal court in February.

Reputed Gambino crime family boss Francesco 'Franky Boy' Cali shot to death outside his home, probed as possible revival of 'mob war': Source originally appeared on

The reputed leader of the Gambino crime family, once headed by infamous mobster John Gotti, was gunned down in a "well-thought-out execution" outside his New York City home late Wednesday -- sparking an investigation into whether the hit was sanctioned or the revival of a "mob war," sources told ABC News.

Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali, 53, was found with multiple gunshot wounds to his body outside his home on Staten Island, according to the New York Police Department.

"This was not some fly-by-night thing," a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told ABC News. "This was a well-thought-out execution."

Police recovered 12 shell casings at the scene, sources said.

Imelda Marcos Is Sentenced to Decades in Prison for Corruption
Imelda Marcos, the 89-year-old former first lady of the Philippines, was sentenced to 42 years in prison on Friday, but appeals and her advanced age make it unlikely that she will spend time behind bars.

MANILA — A Philippine court on Friday sentenced Imelda R. Marcos, the country’s flamboyant former first lady, to a minimum of 42 years in prison for creating private foundations to hide her unexplained wealth.

But it is unlikely that Ms. Marcos, a 89-year-old widow, will see any jail time. The court, which handles graft and public corruption cases, said the ruling could be appealed, and legal experts have said Ms. Marcos could fight a prison sentence because of her advanced age.

The sentence comes as Mrs. Marcos and her family have seen a political resurgence in the Philippines, having gained favor under the presidency of Rodrigo Duterte.

The Milky Way Could Crash Into Another Galaxy Billions of Years Earlier Than Predicted
Mark your calendars for a rendezvous with the Large Magellanic Cloud.

Ah, the Milky Way, our glittering home in the cosmos. Seen in an unencumbered night sky, far from the glare of city lights, it seems magnificent and eternal in its enormity. Nothing could shift this ancient web of stars, nothing could disturb its transcendent stoicism.

Except, that is, another galaxy. Galaxies orbit millions of light-years apart, but gravity, the immutable magnet of the cosmos, can pull them together, producing spectacular collisions that reshuffle stars. According to the leading theory, the Milky Way will collide with one of its closest neighbors, Andromeda, sometime between 6 billion and 8 billion years from now.


“Basically, when you get to my age, you’ll really measure your success in life by how many of the people you want to have love you actually do love you.

“I know people who have a lot of money, and they get testimonial dinners and they get hospital wings named after them. But the truth is that nobody in the world loves them. If you get to my age in life and nobody thinks well of you, I don’t care how big your bank account is; your life is a disaster.

“That’s the ultimate test of how you have lived your life. The trouble with love is that you can’t buy it. You can buy sex. You can buy testimonial dinners. But the only way to get love is to be lovable. It’s very irritating if you have a lot of money. You’d like to think you could write a check: I’ll buy a million dollars’ worth of love. But it doesn’t work that way. The more you give love away, the more you get.”

--Warren Buffett

(CNN)Few who work at senior levels in the administration of President Donald Trump leave with their reputations unsullied. Even fewer leave on their own terms.

Jim Mattis is one of the few.

In the wake of Mattis' resignation as defense secretary Thursday, it's worth recalling that the relationship between Trump and Mattis started well. Mattis met Trump for the first time at Trump's golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey in mid-November 2016 to talk with the President-elect about the Secretary of Defense job.

LGU Philippines / Not one bell less: Samar diocese nixes Zubiri plea

Just days after their return to the country, the bells of Balangiga are ringing a new controversy, this time between a senator and the Diocese of Borongan in Eastern Samar where the bells originated more than 100 years ago.

Church leaders said it would be “disrespectful” to keep any of the three bells outside Balangiga town in Eastern Samar, where they belong. Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri, who filed a resolution asking to display one of the bells in the National Museum, said the clergy were being “arrogant” in their statement.

The bells were taken by American troops as war trophies in retaliation against the people of Balangiga for the Sept. 28, 1901, attack on a US Army garrison in the town that killed 48 soldiers. One of the bells was used to signal the attack, according to historian Rolando Borrinaga.

A clash of kings: Carlsen, right, has been defending his title from Caruana

After drawing their final match in London on Monday, they head to a series of fast-paced tie-breakers, culminating in a game type known as "Armageddon".

If he wins, Caruana will be the first US world champion since Bobby Fischer in 1972.
