Russian President Vladimir Putin shot back at Western leaders who mocked his athletic exploits, saying they would look "disgusting" if they tried to emulate his bare-torso appearances.

Putin made the comment during a visit to Turkmenistan early Thursday when asked about Western leaders joking about him at the G7 summit.

As they sat down for talks, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson jested that G7 leaders could take their clothes off to "show that we're tougher than Putin" amid Russia-West tensions...More

Salmonella found in world's biggest chocolate plant

Salmonella bacteria have been discovered in the world's biggest chocolate plant, run by Swiss giant Barry Callebaut in the Belgian town of Wieze, the company said Thursday.

A company spokesman told Agence France-Presse production had been halted at the factory, which produces liquid chocolate in wholesale batches for 73 clients that make confectionaries.

"All products manufactured since the test have been blocked," spokesman Korneel Warlop said.

"Barry Callebaut is currently contacting all customers who may have received contaminated products. Chocolate production in Wieze remains suspended until further notice."

Most of the products discovered to be contaminated are still on the site, he...More

Ernst & Young hit with $100 million fine after auditors cheat on ethics exam

Ernst & Young cheated on the ethics section of the Certified Public Accountant exam and withheld evidence of the behavior from regulators, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The SEC has fined EY $100 million — the largest penalty ever for an accounting firm — the agency announced on Tuesday. Beyond breaking accounting rules, the company "hindered" the agency's probe of the misconduct by withholding information from the SEC, the regulator stated.

"It's simply outrageous that the very professionals responsible for catching cheating by clients cheated on ethics exams," Gurbir Grewal, director of the SEC's enforcement division, said in a statement. "It's equally shocking that...More

The FBI announced Thursday that it has added Ruja Ignatova — also known as "Cryptoqueen" — to its Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. Ignatova is accused of creating a fake Bulgarian-based cryptocurrency company and defrauding investors out of nearly $4 billion.

According to the FBI, Ignatova is the just the 11th woman to be added to the list in the organization's 72-year-history. Authorities have now offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to her capture.

Children set out hoping to earn enough to support their siblings and parents. Young adults who sacrificed to attend college thinking it would lead to success left their country disillusioned.

Wikimedia Commons | The dancing plague of 1518 may have caused the deaths of more than 100 people in modern-day France who simply could not stop moving for days or even weeks on end.

On July 14, 1518, a woman named Frau Troffea from the city of Strasbourg in modern-day France left her house and began to dance. She kept going and going for hours until she finally collapsed, sweating and twitching on the ground.

As if in a trance, she started dancing again the following day and the next day after that, seemingly unable to stop. Others soon started following suit and she was eventually joined by some 400 other locals who danced uncontrollably alongside her for about two full months.

A video of a McDonald's employee kicking a man out of a drive-thru has gone viral, but probably not for reasons the customer expected.

TikToker @ghettogaragebuilds shared clips of a McDonald's employee berating a customer at a drive-thru window for repeatedly asking workers to remake his drink.

Two versions of the video were posted online – the first being 37 seconds long, and a six-second clip of the incident that went viral with over 6.2 million views.

Two women, one Austrian and the other Romanian, were killed in shark attacks this week off the coast of Egypt, Egypt's environment ministry and the tourists' respective foreign ministries said Sunday.

A large chunk of Alpine glacier broke loose Sunday afternoon and slid down a mountainside in Italy, sending ice, snow and rock slamming into hikers on a popular trail on the peak killing at least six and injuring eight, authorities said.

There could be about 10 people missing, Civil Protection official Gianpaolo Bottacin was quoted as saying by the online version of Italian daily Corriere della Sera. But Bottacin later told state television that it wasn't yet possible to provide a firm number.

The glacier, in the Marmolada range, is the largest in the Dolomite mountains in northeastern Italy and...More

There hasn't been much to sing about for months in the village of Kueryiek. But all that could change: A marriage is at hand.

Wearing a green dress and an ill-fitting wig, bride-to-be Nyekuoth Manyuan is treated like royalty. By getting married, she can save her community from starvation.

But as CBS News foreign correspondent Debora Patta reports, it comes at a terrible cost: The bride is a child, just 14 years old.

Two months ago, she had a future outside of her small village in South Sudan. She was in school, where she received not only an...More

San Francisco couple fined $1,500 and banned from parking their car on own property


A San Francisco couple who parked their car for decades on a paved section of their property in front of their home has been banned from doing so in the future — and also fined more than $1,500.

KGO-TV reported Monday that city officials sent a letter to Judy and Ed Craine telling them they can't park on the pavement on their property on a hilly street even though they have been doing so for 36 years. With the letter came a notice of a $1,542 fine and the threat of a $250-a-day fee for continued parking on their property.

"To all of a sudden to be told you can't use something that we could use for years, it's startling," Ed Craine said.

Inside Travis The Chimp’s Gruesome Attack That Left A Woman Without A Face
Public Domain | Charla Nash knew Travis since he was a baby, but he attacked her in 2009.

On February 16, 2009, tragedy struck when Travis the Chimp, a chimpanzee who had gained national celebrity over the years, viciously attacked his owner’s close friend, Charla Nash. Travis’ behavior had become increasingly erratic, and the attack left Nash severely disfigured and Travis dead.

Today, Nash continues to heal from the attack, and conversations around the ownership of exotic animals have only gained more traction following the shocking attack.

A man suffering from a rare type of cancer called pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) which can surround the organs in the abdomen has survived thanks to a groundbreaking multi-organ transplant procedure.

Andy Voge, 33, thought he had six months to live before he met a doctor from the U.K. who successfully removed and replaced all of his affected organs in a first-of-its kind operation in the U.S.

It all began in January 2019, when Voge and his wife, Rachel, living in Minnesota at the time, noticed a bulge on Voge’s abdomen. “I...More

2-year-old boy orphaned when both of his parents were killed in Highland Park parade shooting

Both parents of a 2-year-old boy were among the seven people killed in Monday's mass shooting during a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, CBS Chicago reports. Kevin McCarthy, 37, and Irina McCarthy, 35, were separated from their son, Aiden, when the gunfire erupted.

A couple, Dana and Greg Ring, told CBS Chicago they took Aiden in during the ensuing chaos. They said they found him with a stranger, who was also in shock.

"She was physically shaking, her whole body, which told us that ... she shouldn't be having to hold, and/or deal with a little one at the same time," Dana Ring said.

The boy was not hurt.

"We took the little boy," Greg Ring said. "I...More

Flight controllers have lost contact with a small pathfinder spacecraft launched last week to test an unusual lunar orbit planned for NASA's Artemis moon program, officials said Tuesday. Engineers are troubleshooting and attempting to re-establish communications.

Launched last Tuesday from New Zealand atop a Rocketlab Electron rocket, the CAPSTONE spacecraft relied on a compact-but-sophisticated upper stage for thruster firings to repeatedly "pump up" the high point of an increasingly elliptical orbit to the point where it could break free of Earth's gravity and head for...More

For over a year, lawmakers and businesses have been bemoaning how they can't find workers.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell offered his own theory as to why at an event in Paducah, Kentucky, on Tuesday.

"You've got a whole lot of people sitting on the sidelines because, frankly, they're flush for the moment," the Kentucky Republican said. "What we've got to hope is once they run out of money, they'll start concluding it's better to work than...More

Alaska wildlife officials have killed four black bears in a campground recently reserved for people in Anchorage who are homeless after the city's largest shelter was closed.

Man who spent 44 years in prison alleges in lawsuit that 1977 conviction was part of a cover-up

Man who spent 44 years in prison alleges in lawsuit that 1977 conviction was part of a cover-up

A Black man who was freed from prison earlier this year after spending over four decades behind bars accused officials in a Louisiana parish in the 1970s of falsely arresting and convicting him to cover up the molestation of a White teenage girl. Vincent Simmons, now 70, made the accusation in a civil rights lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court.

Simmons was convicted of two counts of attempted aggravated rape of twin teenage sisters in 1977 and given a 100-year prison sentence. In February, Judge Bill Bennett determined Simmons didn't receive a fair trial. While Bennett expressed "no opinion" on Simmons' guilt or innocence, he threw out Simmons' conviction. Even though prosecutors...More

At 10 years old, Susan Howard knew she was a girl, even though her birth certificate said otherwise. It wasn't until last year, at age 62, that the Montana resident came to terms with being transgender.

Howard underwent hormone therapy, had gender-affirming surgery, and began changing her name and gender on official documents. "It has been a godsend for me," Howard said. "I feel so right and at ease with myself for the first time in so many ways."

But Advanced Space, owner and operator of the $20 million satellite, promised "more details to come."

Elon Musk had twins last year with one of his top executives, report says

Elon Musk had twins with a top executive at Neuralink, director of operations and special projects Shivon Zilis, in November, according to a report in Insider that cited court documents related to the children.

Musk, 51, and Zilis, 36, filed the court documents to ask for their children's names to be changed to include Musk's last name, according to the redacted legal documents posted by Insider. The petition asked that their names "have their father's last name and contain their mother's last name as part of their middle name," a request that Insider reported was granted earlier this year.

The twins were born shortly before the birth of Musk's second child with musician Grimes, who...More

What Killed The Dinosaurs? Inside The Catastrophic Mass Extinction Event

What Killed The Dinosaurs? Inside The Catastrophic Mass Extinction Event
Willgard/Pixabay | After walking the Earth for 165 million years, dinosaurs were wiped out in a mass extinction event 66 million years ago.

Millions of years ago, dinosaurs ruled the Earth. From the chicken-sized Compsognathus to the towering Apatosaurus, these prehistoric reptiles roamed all around the globe during the Mesozoic Era. So then, what killed the dinosaurs in such a sudden fashion?

Whatever it was, it also destroyed 75 percent of all plants and animals on the planet, according to London’s Natural History Museum.

Ever since the first dinosaur fossil was identified in the early 19th century, scientists have put forth theories as to what could have killed some of the largest creatures to ever walk the Earth. They discussed everything from starvation to...More

How bad is the crypto market crash? Take a look at Coinbase

Among those reeling from the billions of dollars lost in the cryptocurrency crash, no company has taken a greater beating than Coinbase. The nation's largest and first publicly traded crypto exchange, Coinbase has seen its stock price plunge 81% this year, and has recently announced plans to shed one-fifth of its staff.

With Coinbase reporting a $430 million first-quarter loss, some hedge funds are starting to short the stock, meaning Wall Street is betting on Coinbase's value dropping even further.

But all is not lost for the exchange, according to analysts, who see more bounce to the crypto bubble than the current crash suggests. Despite its recent struggles, they predict Coinbase will make it through this crypto market...More

PFAs are manmade chemicals that don't break down in the environment. They've been found in a range of industry goods, including cosmetics and non-stick cookware.

Democratic President Joe Biden highlighted the case last week at the signing of an executive order aimed at protecting access to abortion as state after Republican-led state, including Ohio, enacted near-total restrictions after the U.S. Supreme Court's recent landmark ruling.

Thailand considers offering chemical castration to convicted sex offenders in exchange for shorter prison terms

Convicted sex offenders in Thailand could soon be offered chemical castration in exchange for a shorter prison sentence, as lawmakers consider a bill aimed at tackling sex crimes, Reuters reports.

Long lines are back at food banks around the U.S. as working Americans overwhelmed by inflation turn to handouts to help feed their families.

With gas prices soaring along with grocery costs, many people are seeking charitable food for the first time, and more are arriving on foot.

Inflation in the U.S. is at a 40-year high and gas prices have been surging since April 2020, with the average cost nationwide briefly hitting $5 a gallon in June. Rapidly rising rents and an end to federal COVID-19 relief have also taken a financial toll.

News outlets reported that Wanda Palmer was found unconscious with serious head injuries at her home in Jackson County on June 10, 2020.

Palmer was in a coma in a nursing home for two years. Her brother, Daniel Palmer, had been identified as a suspect, but investigators didn't have enough evidence to file charges, court documents said.

A deputy received a call June 27 from a protective services worker who said Wanda Palmer had started to speak single words and seemed to respond when questioned.

In a July 12...More

Shark interactions from Massachusetts to Florida have beachgoers — and local officials — fearful this summer. From red flags on Long Island to closed beaches in Boston and shark patrols in Miami, the prospect of shark danger is enough to make even the most ardent shore-lover cautious about the water.

Bites have been reported on both coasts, with five on Long Island reported in two weeks, one...More

At the Manuscript Café in Tokyo, the customers are writers, who can't leave if they haven't met their work goals for the day. | CBS NEWS

Tokyo's famous themed cafes usually feature animals – cats, pigs, hedgehogs. The vibe is pleasure and play. Quite unlike the newest addition that's all about work.

On a busy intersection in the city's Koenji neighborhood is Tokyo's latest pop-up café, called the Manuscript Café, and it's for people who not only have a writing project but also, most crucially, a deadline.

The mood is serious. A handful of customers sit at workstations glued to their computers, watched over by Takuya Kawai, owner and chief enforcement officer.

A fee of about $2.50 an hour...More

Fighting monkeypox, sexual health clinics are underfunded and ill-equipped

Fighting monkeypox, sexual health clinics are underfunded and ill-equipped

Clinics that treat sexually transmitted diseases — already struggling to contain an explosive increase in infections such as syphilis and gonorrhea — now find themselves on the front lines in the nation's fight to control the rapidly growing monkeypox outbreak.

After decades of underfunding and 2-and-a-half years into a pandemic that severely disrupted care, clinic staffers and public health officials say the clinics are ill-equipped for yet another epidemic.

"America does not have what it needs to adequately and totally fight monkeypox," said David Harvey, executive director of the National Coalition of STD Directors. "We are already stretched to capacity."

A frustrated fisherman has confessed that he stabbed to death dozens of protected sea turtles on a southern Japanese island after they got caught in his fishing nets, local officials say. Between 30 to 50 green sea turtles were found dead or dying last Thursday, with stab wounds on their necks and elsewhere, on a beach in remote Kumejima island, some 1,000 miles southwest of Tokyo.

It was "an extremely grisly scene," according to Yoshimitsu...More

DNA from coffee cup credited in arrest in 1975 cold-case murder

Authorities have announced an arrest in the stabbing death of a 19-year-old woman in Pennsylvania almost a half-century ago, crediting advances in DNA technology and genetic genealogical research.

Lancaster County prosecutors and Manor Township police say a criminal homicide charge has been filed against 68-year-old David Sinopoli in the December 1975 murder of Lindy Sue Beichler.

"Lindy Sue Beichler was 19 when her life was brutally taken away from her 46 years ago in the sanctity of her own home," District Attorney Heather Adams said. She said she hoped the arrest "brings some sense of relief to the victim's loved ones and to the community (who) for the last 46 years have had no...More

Most middle-class Americans say they can't support their cost of living, survey finds

The hottest inflation in forty years is taking its toll on families, with three-quarters of middle-income Americans saying their earnings aren't enough to pay for their cost of living, according to a recent survey.

In some ways, Americans with annual earnings of $30,000 to $100,000 are now under more financial pressure than they were at the start of the pandemic, Glenn J. Williams, CEO of Primerica, told CBS MoneyWatch. Primerica polled almost 1,400 people in that income bracket in early June about their financial views and habits, part of a study that it began at the start of the health crisis.

The financial strength of American households is key to the U.S. economy, given that...More

This couple bought a shed and turned it into a working home – then sold it for a profit


A couple who flipped a home for a profit recently gained widespread attention online – because their home was just a shed when they first bought it. Nick and Meghan Lucido bought a shed from Home Depot for about $27,000 in 2019. After renovating it and living in it for about a year, they sold it for a profit – and used that money to build a traditional home.

They posted about their home on social media and the story went viral on TikTok. Viewers were fascinated by their shed, and how they not only turned it into a home – but turned a profit.

A few years ago, they were just two young professionals in Georgia who were "keeping up with the Joneses," Nick said. "The story...More

Inspired by a Netflix show, 24-year-old Kshama Bindu tied the knot with herself last month – the first example of ‘sologamy’ in India.

Though she is dressed aptly as a newlywed, she is different from other brides. Because Kshama Bindu has not married a man, or a woman – she has married herself.

“People look weirdly at me. Like I have committed a crime,” she told Al Jazeera.

Bindu’s “sologamy” – a marriage with self – was conducted last month in an elaborate Indian wedding setup, making her an overnight internet sensation and the first Indian ever to engage in such a practice.

Bindu says she came up with the idea of sologamy only...More

A resident of a newly built apartment building in South Korea began noticing an odor coming from their master bedroom’s closet that became increasingly worse, later discovering three bags of human feces hidden inside a space in the ceiling.

The apartment building, located in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi province, had only recently been built. As new residents began to move in, one noticed a “strong stench” coming from the walls of the master bedroom’s closet. The resident, who moved into the apartment in May, stated that as the weather got hotter, the odor became...More

Mom who said Sesame Place character ignored two Black girls speaks out: They were sad, heartbroken

The woman who accused a performer at Sesame Place of ignoring her daughter and niece is denying the park's explanation of the incident, saying that it wasn't just a misunderstanding.

The Philadelphia-area theme park, which is based on the popular children's TV show "Sesame Street," came under fire after Jodi Brown shared a video of a performer dressed like the character Rosita appearing to dismiss her daughter and niece, who are Black, during a parade.

Brown's video, which went viral on Instagram, shows the performer apparently gesturing "no" to the girls after high-fiving and interacting with several other guests.

An Australian woman flying from Singapore back to her home country forgot to declare a Subway sandwich at customs after landing. The mistake cost her 2,664 Australian dollars, she said, the equivalent of $1,840.

Jessica Lee, a 19-year-old model from Perth, detailed her sandwich snafu in a TikTok video that went viral, garnering more than 1.5 million views as of Wednesday. Lee said she traveled to Singapore for a vacation, but was hungry on the way to the airport on the return leg home. She said she bought a Subway sandwich, ate half of it, then stowed the rest in her bag during the flight.

Lee acknowledged she likely could have declared the Subway sandwich upon arriving in Australia, but said she never thought about...More

Prince Harry allowed to sue U.K. government over security plan

Prince Harry can take the British government to court over his security arrangements in the U.K., a judge in London ruled Friday. Harry and his wife Meghan lost publicly funded U.K. police protection when they stepped down as senior working royals and moved to North America in 2020.

The prince wants to pay personally for police security when he comes to Britain, and is challenging the government's refusal to permit it.

Judge Jonathan Swift ruled Friday that the case can go to a full hearing at the High Court in London. He refused some aspects of the challenge but said some grounds "give rise to an arguable case" that deserves a hearing.

The judge said "a conclusion at the permission stage that...More

In a statement, Ocean Park said that An An's health has been deteriorating for a few weeks and that, along with decreasing activity levels, his eating had declined "slowly but progressively." By this past Sunday, he had stopped eating altogether. The panda has developed high blood pressure, according to the Associated Press, and was being kept away from visitors as the decline worsened.

Head of the British intelligence service MI6 Richard Moore said Thursday that Russian President Vladimir Putin had thus far suffered a "strategic defeat" in Ukraine, failing to achieve any of what Moore described as three key objectives — removing Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy from power, taking control of the country's capital, Kyiv, and sowing disunity within NATO.

"On all of those," he said, "I think they count as epic fails."

Moore, who took part in a question-and-answer session at the annual Aspen Security Forum in Aspen, Colorado, predicted that Russian forces would be forced to regroup within "the next few weeks," offering Ukraine a crucial window within which to...More

Apple Watch Saves Life of Woman with Heart Tumor: 'My Watch Told Me'

You’ve heard of a doc in a box, but what about a doc in a watch?

One woman from Maine is crediting her Apple Watch with saving her life after the smart clock alerted her three nights in a row in May that she might be in atrial fibrillation, she told WBZ-TV.

The 67-year-old woman, Kim Durkee, presumed the watch’s abnormal heart arrhythmia warning was nothing more than a tech error and initially dismissed its alerts.

“The third night, the numbers went a little too high for comfort,” she said. “Then I said, ‘You know what? Go to the emergency room. If they tell you it’s nothing to worry about, then toss the watch.'”

Despite not feeling any symptoms of a heart condition,...More

Beijing court rules against woman who wanted to freeze her eggs

A Chinese court has overruled a rare legal challenge brought by an unmarried Beijing woman seeking the right to freeze her eggs.

The Chaoyang Intermediate People's Court in Beijing said in a judgment that the hospital did not violate the woman's rights in denying her access to freeze her eggs. Teresa Xu received the court judgment Friday, almost three years after she first brought the case.

In China, national law does not explicitly ban unmarried people from services like fertility treatments, and simply states that a "husband and wife" can have up to three children. In practice, however, hospitals and other institutions implement the regulations in a way that requires people to show a marriage license....More

Major rent surge pushing some Tampa residents toward homelessness

Major rent surge pushing some Tampa residents toward homelessness: It's no different from a hurricane

Like any renter in Tampa, Kevida Gued knows it's a landlord's market. But the single mother of three's family needs an affordable three-bedroom fast, because their lease is ending Sunday.

Gued told CBS News she's looked at more than 50 places and reached out to more than 200 "all over Tampa Bay, all over the state of Florida." On average, Tampa's rents ballooned 22% in the last year.

Valerie Bannon's landlord in St. Petersburg hiked her rent by nearly 60% from $1,500 to $2,400 a month for a modest four-bedroom. Without options, the overnight auditor who is legally blind and earning under $20,000 a year moved her family into a hotel. A charity is paying the bill....More

Way up in the snowy Alps, the border between Switzerland and Italy has shifted due to a melting glacier, putting the location of an Italian mountain lodge in dispute.

The borderline runs along a drainage divide -- the point at which meltwater will run down either side of the mountain toward one country or the other.

But the Theodul Glacier's retreat means the watershed has crept toward the Rifugio Guide del Cervino, a refuge for visitors near the 11,417-foot Testa Grigia peak --...More

Just as thousands of protesters hit the streets in Romania to say "I don't" to a recently proposed law against LGBTQ "propaganda", marching in protest against the bill, two women took advantage of an oversight in the country's strict marriage laws to say "I do."

On July 9 — the day of the largest-ever Bucharest Pride March in history — Evie and Gia were married at a civil registry office in the Romanian capital. It was the first...More

Guantanamo forever prisoner cleared for release after 20 years, hopes for
An undated file photo shows Guantanamo Bay detainee Khalid Ahmed Qasim, a Yemeni national who, as of the summer of 2022, had spent half of his life at the U.S.-run prison camp without being charged with any crime.

A U.S. government review board has cleared one of the longest-held prisoners at Guantanamo Bay for release. The Periodic Review Board said in its July 19 "final determination" that there was no longer sufficient cause to keep Khalid Ahmed Qasim imprisoned at the base.

After spending more than 20 years at the prison camp, Qasim should be released to an as-yet unspecified country "with a strong rehabilitation and reintegration program," the board...More

GOP Rep. Glenn Thompson attended son's same-sex wedding days after opposing marriage equality bill


Days after voting against legislation last week that would protect marriage equality, Rep. Glenn Thompson, a Republican from Pennsylvania, attended his son's wedding to another man.

"Congressman and Mrs. Thompson were thrilled to attend and celebrate their son's marriage on Friday night as he began this new chapter in his life," Maddison Stone, Thompson's press secretary, told CBS News in an email. "The Thompsons are very happy to welcome their new son-in-law into their family."

Thompson was among the 157 Republicans in the House who opposed the Respect for Marriage Act, which, if enacted, would repeal the Clinton-era Defense of Marriage Act, require states...More

"Extremely rare" 1,850-year-old bronze coin found in waters off Israel's coast



Israeli archaeologists on Tuesday displayed a rare and "remarkably well preserved" Roman-era bronze coin dating back 1,850 years, depicting the moon goddess Luna, the first such find in Israeli waters.

The coin minted in Alexandria in present-day Egypt featuring the zodiac sign Cancer below Luna and the era's Roman emperor, Antoninus Pius, on the other side, was discovered by archaeologists with the Israel Antiquities Authority during explorations off Haifa in northern Israel.

It is dated "year eight," referring to the eighth year of Antoninus Pius's rule, which ran from 138 to 161, part of an era known as Pax Romana, when there was relative peace throughout the Roman Empire.

Bayern CEO Kahn says Ronaldo doesn't fit club's 'philosophy'

Bayern CEO Kahn says Ronaldo doesn't fit club's 'philosophy'

Bayern Munich chief executive Oliver Kahn said on Wednesday that making a move for Cristiano Ronaldo in the transfer market would not fit the club's "philosophy".

Manchester United striker Ronaldo reportedly wants to leave the club he rejoined last year, although new Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag has insisted the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is not for sale.

Ronaldo arrived back at Old Trafford on Tuesday ahead of talks with Ten Hag over his future.

But Europe's top clubs, including Bayern, have not been scrapping for the Portuguese star's signature.

A Chinese cargo spacecraft that serviced the country's permanent orbiting space station has largely burned up on reentering the atmosphere, amid separate concerns over China's decision to allow a massive booster rocket to fall to Earth uncontrolled.

Only small parts of the Tianzhou-3 ship survived to fall safely Wednesday into a predetermined area of the South Pacific, the China Manned Space Agency said.

Until July 17, the...More

A respected Polish scientific institute has classified domestic cats as an "invasive alien species," citing the damage they cause to birds and other wildlife.

Some cat lovers have reacted emotionally to this month's decision and put the key scientist behind it on the defensive.

Wojciech Solarz, a biologist at the state-run Polish Academy of Sciences, wasn't prepared for the disapproving public response when he entered "Felis catus," the scientific name for the common house cat, into a national database run by...More

Two new studies provide more evidence that the coronavirus pandemic originated in a Wuhan, China market where live animals were sold — further bolstering the theory that the virus emerged in the wild rather than escaping from a Chinese lab.

The research, published online Tuesday by the journal Science, shows that the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market was likely the early epicenter of the scourge that has now killed nearly 6.4 million people around the world. Scientists conclude that the virus that causes COVID-19,...More

Who is Viktor Bout, the Russian arms dealer known as the Merchant of Death?

Who is Viktor Bout, the Russian arms dealer known as the Merchant of Death?


Speculation is growing that the U.S. could release Viktor Bout, a convicted arms dealer nicknamed the "Merchant of Death," to secure the freedom of women's basketball star Brittney Griner and former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan, who are both imprisoned in Russia.

Russian state media has speculated for months that Griner, who was detained at a Moscow airport in February on drug charges, and Whelan, sentenced to 16 years in a Russian prison on espionage charges that he called a setup, could be swapped for Bout, whose freedom has long been sought by the Kremlin. But the Biden administration remained quiet about the possibility.

Then on Wednesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, offered...More
