Striking Hollywood writers reach tentative deal with studios

WGA strike updateHollywood's writers union reached a preliminary labor agreement with major studios on Sunday, a deal expected to end one of two strikes that have halted most film and television production and cost the California economy billions.

The three-year contract still must be approved by leadership of the Writers Guild of America (WGA,) as well as union members, before it can take effect.

The WGA, which represents 11,500 film and television writers, described the deal as "exceptional" with "meaningful gains and protections for writers."


Third person charged in fentanyl-exposure death of 1-year-old at Bronx daycare center

Third person charged in fentanyl death in day care

A third person has been charged in the death of a one-year-old child who was exposed to fentanyl along with three other children at a Bronx daycare center, officials announced Monday.

The case sparked national outcry after one-year-old Nicholas Dominici died earlier this month following exposure to fentanyl at the Divino Niño daycare center. Three other children, all under the age of three, were hospitalized with serious injuries following what appeared to be the effects of fentanyl poisoning, officials said.

Law enforcement officials found large quantities of fentanyl and other drugs in hidden floor compartments and atop children’s play mats at Divino Niño, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. Also found were drug packaging materials, such as glassine envelopes stamped in red with “RED DAWN.”

National Cathedral unveils racial justice-themed windows, replacing Confederate ones

National Cathedral gets new windows

Six years after two stained-glass windows that honored Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson were taken down, the Washington National Cathedral has unveiled the pair of windows that are taking their place.

The windows, titled "Now and Forever," were created by artist Kerry James Marshall and center around racial justice. The images show a group of protesters marching in different directions and holding up large signs that read "Fairness" and "No Foul Play."

The new windows "lift up the values of justice and fairness and the ongoing struggle for equality among all God's great children," the Very Rev. Randolph Marshall Hollerith, the cathedral's dean, said on Saturday at the unveiling.


Florida authorities find 13ft alligator in canal with human remains in mouth

Florida authorities find 13 ft alligator with human parts in mouth

Authorities euthanized a 13ft alligator with human remains in its mouth after the animal turned up on Friday afternoon in a canal in Largo, Florida.

The Pinellas county sheriff’s office said in a news release that the male alligator measured 13ft 8.5in and was “humanely” killed after being removed from the water. The sheriff’s dive team recovered the human remains from the waterway.

Deputies stopped short of saying whether investigators believed the alligator had killed the person whose remains were in the animal’s mouth.

Deadly alligator attacks are rare. According to the online animal encylopedia AZ Animals, there are an average of about six fatal alligator attacks reported in the US each year.


Texas sends another wave of migrants to New York City despite ‘capacity’ claims

Abbott sendIng more migrants to NYC

Texas announced Friday that the state would be busing more migrants from “overwhelmed” border communities to New York City, despite Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-N.Y.) saying the state is at “capacity.”

Busses chartered by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and the Texas Division of Emergency Management left Del Rio and Eagle Pass on Friday, Abbott announced. The New York Post reported that the buses were heading to New York.

“Texas border towns should not have to shoulder the burden of Biden’s open border policies,” Abbott posted on X, formerly known as Twitter. “Texas will continue to send buses to sanctuary cities to provide relief to overrun border towns.”

Hochul has asked for more federal aid to help with the unprecedented number of migrants arriving in the city, but the White House denied her request, saying the funding needs to come from Congress.



Nebraska Mother Gets Prison For Giving Abortion Pills To Pregnant Daughter

Teen gets 90 days; mom gets two years for abortion

A Nebraska mother who pleaded guilty to giving her teenage daughter pills for an abortion and helping to burn and conceal the fetus was sentenced Friday to two years in prison.

The mother pleaded guilty in July to tampering with human remains, false reporting and providing an abortion after at least 20 weeks of gestation, which is illegal in Nebraska. Madison County District Judge Mark Johnson sentenced her Friday to one year in prison for each count, with the first two to run concurrently. The sentence for the abortion count was ordered to run after the first two, amounting to a two-year sentence.

Online court records show the judge deemed her unsuitable for probation.

The Norfolk, Nebraska, woman admitted at her plea hearing to helping her then-17-year-old daughter end her pregnancy. As part of her plea, charges of concealing the death of another person and abortion by someone other than a licensed physician were dismissed.
