Worshippers Pack Louisiana Church Where Pastor is Defying Coronavirus Ban: ‘We Have a Mandate from God’ — WATCH
Life Tabernacle Church was packed for services on Tuesday night after its pastor, Mark Anthony (Tony) Spell, was charged with six misdemeanor counts of disobeying the powers of the governor for defying the state’s ban on public gatherings amid the coronavirus crisis.
“We have a mandate from the word of God. … We have a mandate from God to praise God in his sanctuary. This is the sanctuary,” said Spell.
Maine residents try to force quarantine of out-of-towners by cutting down tree, police say
A group of Maine residents apparently tried to forcibly quarantine their neighbors by cutting down a tree and blocking a roadway out of fear they might have the coronavirus.
A man who lived on Cripple Creek Road in Vinalhaven on an island off Maine left his residence to check on disrupted cable service when he came across a downed tree in the road, according to a Facebook post Saturday from the Knox County Sheriff's Office. He told police that when he got out of his car to inspect the tree, a group of people, some with guns, gathered around him and told him he needed to be quarantined.
"Believing the group may be there to harm him, [he] fled to his residence and told his roommates what he had found," the department said.
Elderly Woman ‘In Tears’ At Empty Supermarket Highlights Panic Buying Crisis
Countries around the world have witnessed unprecedented panic buying at supermarkets and pharmacies due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Aisles have been stripped bare every day as many try to get enough food to last them through a two week self-isolation.
However, there have been some people who have been greedier than others.
As a result, loads of shoppers have been left to get whatever is left and, in some cases, leave nearly empty handed with no idea how they'll get their groceries.
That was highlighted in a heartbreaking picture of an elderly woman in Australia standing in front of cleared out shelves that used to hold canned foods.
Channel 9's Seb Costello shared the picture on social media of the devastating reality that is facing many people across Australia and the world.
He reported the woman was left in tears at the bare aisles.
SCIENCE SAYS BULLIES MIGHT BE SO MEAN BECAUSE THEY LITERALLY HAVE LESS OF A BRAIN
If you’ve ever been bullied, at some point you must have wondered what was going on in the bully’s head to make them do anything from giving atomic wedgies to spreading vicious rumors — how could you not?
"Our findings support the idea that, for the small proportion of individuals with life-course-persistent antisocial behavior, there may be differences in their brain structure that make it difficult for them to develop social skills that prevent them from engaging in antisocial behavior. These people could benefit from more support throughout their lives," Christina Carlisi, of University College London in the UK, said in a press release. She and her colleagues recently published a study in The Lancet.
MRI scans measured the total surface area and thickness of the cerebral cortex, which is the same gray matter you see in zombie movies. The cerebral cortex is the epicenter of higher thought processes that include motivation and decision making — and it might be something lacking here that leads to decisions which are less than stellar.

Conservative 'Moms' group slams Burger King for using 'the d-word' in a commercial
Activist conservative group One Million Moms is taking aim at Burger King for using what it calls the "d-word" in a commercial promoting the non-meat Impossible Whopper.
In the ad, a group of people taste-test the plant-based patty that has been a hit for the fast-food company. With a mouthful of food, one man says...
A YouTuber could face criminal charges after a picture he posted of a handwritten in-flight menu on Indonesia's flagship airline went viral
A YouTuber could face criminal charges after his photo of a handwritten menu from his flight on Garuda Indonesia, Indonesia's flagship airline, was mocked online.
Rius Vernandes, who has 121,000 followers on Instagram and 500,000 subscribers on YouTube and often reviews flights, shared the image of the menu on his business-class flight on Saturday with the caption "The menu is still being printed sir," The Guardian reported.
The menu, written on a white piece of paper, showed options including beef steak and crème brûlée.
Ask the Captain: Is it OK to rat out passengers for phone use during takeoff and landing?
Question: Why don’t airlines stress strongly to leave overhead bins closed during emergency evacuations? I noticed some people on the recent crash in Russia that people delayed the evacuation and most likely caused deaths. I've also seen videos showing people running away from crash site with their carry-on luggage. No luggage is worth losing lives over.
– Dan O, Massachusetts
Answer: Passengers who attempt to retrieve overhead luggage during and evacuation put themselves at risk and others at risk.
Bullying, sexual assault led to student's suicide after school staff didn't intervene: Lawsuit
A New York City high schooler who took her own life after she was allegedly bullied and forced to perform sexual acts on other students had experienced the abuse since she began attending the school, and school staff knew about it but did not intervene, a lawsuit by the girl's parents alleges.

Trump administration announces rollback of health care regulations protecting LGBTQ people
The Health and Human Services Department (HHS) announced Friday that it is proposing a rule that would change a regulation under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that expanded anti-discrimination protections to transgender individuals.
The new regulation would change the 2016 rule that banned discrimination -- on the basis of sex and against trangender people -- by health care providers that receive federal funding.
In a release announcing the proposed change, HHS pointed to a Texas judge's December 2016 injunction that kept the Obama-era rule from being implemented. U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor sided with the state of Texas and other plaintiffs who argued that the Obama rule would force health care providers and insurers to enable transgender people to be treated and get coverage for gender transitions and abortions, despite their religious beliefs or against their medical judgment.
These robots were built to be punched, stabbed and cursed. Here's why you might want to oblige them.
It’s no secret that technology can drive us batty. Between glitchy apps, social media outages and data breaches, the only thing stopping some people from smashing their personal tech is the exorbitant cost of replacing it.
Now a trio of researchers say they’ve found a way to use technology to channel our rage rather than provoke it. They’ve created robots designed not to perform tasks but to serve as our personal punching bags.
The research team, based at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, says the so-called “cathartic objects” are designed to be hit, stabbed, cursed and otherwise abused. The bots don’t complain or fight back, as seen in a video, but they do respond by flashing lights and flailing around.
Why should we take our anger out on robots? The researchers say it’s all about catharsis, the process by which people give full expression of their negative emotions as a way to curb them.
Why California is home to straw bans and mandated meatless Mondays – and Iowa isn't
City events and meetings held in Berkeley, California, on Mondays are required to serve no meat – yes, mandated meatless Mondays. The City Council passed the resolution last month, requiring vegan menus one day a week. Big Brother is now telling you to eat your vegetables. Or else.
This government move to reshape societal norms under the guise of knowing what its citizens really need – a sort of "A Handmaid's Kale" – quickly became a national punchline. But Berkeley out-Berkeleying itself is hardly the first time Californians have made a move that caused the other 49 states to snicker.
Everything You Know About Obesity Is Wrong
From the 16th century to the 19th, scurvy killed around 2 million sailors, more than warfare, shipwrecks and syphilis combined. It was an ugly, smelly death, too, beginning with rattling teeth and ending with a body so rotted out from the inside that its victims could literally be startled to death by a loud noise. Just as horrifying as the disease itself, though, is that for most of those 300 years, medical experts knew how to prevent it and simply failed to.
Which brings us to one of the largest gaps between science and practice in our own time. Years from now, we will look back in horror at the counterproductive ways we addressed the obesity epidemic and the barbaric ways we treated fat people—long after we knew there was a better path.
Georgia school reinstating paddling to punish students
A school in Hephzibah, Georgia, is drawing national attention after sending consent forms to parents informing them of a new policy of using paddling as a form of punishment for students, CBS affiliate WRDW-TV reports.
The Georgia School of Innovation and the Classics (GSIC), a kindergarten-through-9th-grade charter school, is bringing back paddling — spanking a child on the behind with a wooden board — as a form of discipline. Superintendent Jody Boulineau told WRDW that about 100 parents sent back the forms, and one-third gave the school consent to paddle their child.
"In this school, we take discipline very seriously," the superintendent said. "There was a time where corporal punishment was kind of the norm in school and you didn't have the problems that you have."
Yelp can't be forced to delete your terrible, mean comments, court rules
While Yelp will forever be a battleground of hot takes and battles between business owners and customers, the site won a legal skirmish that, for now, protects it from liability over negative reviews.
It’s Not Just Abortion, Birth Control Coverage Is Also in Jeopardy
But something that’s not getting as much attention is the fact that a more conservative court could rule against employers having to cover birth control and family planning clinics having to offer it. The potential intersection of reduced access to birth control and restricted abortion rights could set up a perfect storm of more unintended pregnancies and fewer places for women to access safe, legal abortion. Maternal death rates in the US are already too high, and the combination of some women being forced to carry an unintended pregnancy to term and likely delaying prenatal care and some women seeking abortions from unsafe providers could lead to even more women dying—particularly women of color and low-income women.
