If people are sleepless in Seattle, it may not be only because they have broken hearts. The American Medical Association issued a warning in June that high-intensity LED streetlights — such as those in Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, Houston and elsewhere — emit unseen blue light that can disturb sleep rhythms and possibly increase the risk of serious health conditions, including cancer and cardiovascular disease. The AMA also cautioned that those light-emitting-diode lights can impair nighttime driving vision. Similar concerns have been raised over the past few years, but the AMA report adds credence to the issue and is likely to prompt cities and states to reevaluate the intensity of LED lights they install.
At least three gunmen were seen shooting and wounding eight people in eastern Baltimore in a fresh attack. While all three suspects are still at large, the police said a three-year-old girl, who was not an intended target, was among the wounded.
Florida’s Quincy Wilson guaranteed the Gators would continue their decade-long win streak against Tennessee, saying "nobody has ever seen a duck pull a truck." He didn’t just talk off the field: He also got into a skirmish with a Vol on the field.That earned him an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. But, more importantly, what exactly did he rip off his opponent and toss in the air?It’s probably a piece of the Tennessee player’s shoulder pad. ...
Times are hard and confusing, but Michelle Obama gives a hug that could cure all ills. At the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. Saturday, the First Lady enveloped President George W. Bush in an embrace for the ages. He seemed to enjoy it, and the whole affair did not escape the internet's notice. Decide for yourself whether Bush deserves that great hug given his record (*clears throat*), but it looks like America appreciated it nevertheless.

You could tell George Bush enjoyed that hug!! #FLOTUS https://t.co/KDkkmWhasi — Alicia Shockness (@AliShock0917) September 24, 2016 The across-the-political-aisle gesture was not even the most heartwarming moment from the event — not by a long shot. Ruth Bonner, 99, the daughter of a man born a slave in Mississippi who ran to freedom, helped ring the bell to officially open the museum, with several generations of her family looking on. During his speech, President Barack Obama told Bonner's incredible history with his customary eloquence. The bell also had its own story, having been taken from the First Baptist Church in Virginia, a historic black church.

Forget Brad and Angelina — a much more sinister tabloid headline has captured Hollywood’s attention this week, and inspired grim, rampant speculation about whether a famous actor repeatedly raped a now-deceased child star. Radar Online last week published a bombshell report claiming to know the identity of a beloved male star who sexually abused an underage Corey Haim in the prime of his career. Haim died at age 38, of pneumonia, in 2010. The report, commonly referred to as a “blind item,” contends that the widely known entertainer and family man used his influence to commit the horrific acts — all part of a wider ring of alleged Hollywood pedophilia that Radar has been investigating for four years.
The elderly Brooklyn woman found this month living with the skeletal remains of her son, possibly for as long as 20 years, is a legally blind hoarder who may not have even known he was there, NYPD sources said. The chilling discovery of the skeleton was made Sept. 15 when a relative showed up at Rita Wolfensohn’s Midwood home to fetch her belongings and take them to her in the hospital. In a debris-choked second-floor bedroom, sister-in-law Josette Buchman found a “completely intact” skeleton, dressed in jeans, socks and a shirt, lying on its back on a thin mattress on the floor, police sources told The Post. “It’s like some reverse ‘Psycho’ scene,” a law-enforcement source said at the time, referring to Hitchcock’s 1960 horror flick in which a son, Norman Bates, keeps his dead mother’s remains in a basement.
