Feb. 17 (UPI) — Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd‘s son made his TV debut Friday at just six weeks old. The 37-year-old American dancer and 30-year-old Australian dance pro introduced son Shai Aleksander on the ABC morning show Good Morning America. “It’s nerve-wracking because I, specifically, wanted to keep him very private from the beginning,” Murgatroyd told anchor Paula Faris. “We just want to keep him for ourselves.” “I specifically wanted to keep him very private from the beginning because we wanted him to ourselves. I think he’s so special that we wanted those moments, those first moments, to be for ourselves,” Chmerkovskiy added. The Dancing with the Stars pros welcomed Shai on Jan. 4. The new dad had shared similar sentiments about protecting his son’s privacy in an Instagram post later in the month. “It’s been one week plus one day of my fatherhood and I’m the happiest person that’s ever lived. I’m also …

Feb. 20 (UPI) — Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis told Iraqis the United States has no plans to take the country’s oil during an unannounced stop in Baghdad on Monday morning, despite President Donald Trump making repeated comments that the country’s oil should have been seized during the U.S. invasion in 2003. Mattis, the highest ranking member of the Trump administration to visit Iraq since the inauguration, told reporters on Monday that while the mission for the United States in Iraq has not changed — though it might — he felt he could get a better idea of the situation by putting his feet on the ground there. Mattis also sought to reassure Iraqis and others who work with the U.S. military, such as translators, they will not have a problem traveling to and from the United States, regardless of the status of an executive order on immigration, telling them the issue will be worked …

Feb. 20 (UPI) — Ecuador’s former vice president inched closer to an outright win in the first round of Sunday’s presidential election and may have a chance at avoiding a second-round run-off vote to win office. Lenin Moreno had a solid lead in Ecuador’s presidential election with just over half the votes counted on Sunday night, pulling in 38.8 percent to Guillermo Lasso’s 28.7 percent — but unless Moreno breaks 40 percent there will be a run-off vote on April 2. Beyond Lasso, former Congresswoman Cynthia Viteri nabbed 16.3 percent of the vote and former Quito Mayor Paco Moncayo had 6.9 percent of the vote. Ecuadorians also voted for the 137 members of the National Assembly, however the presidential election garnered far more attention as this is the first time in a decade that outgoing President Rafael Correa isn’t on the ballot. Moreno is his hand-chosen successor and would be expected to continue most of …

Authorities were reportedly searching for two suspects Sunday after a man and a woman were found brutally murdered inside their Massachusetts home. Law enforcement sources told CBS Boston that a man and his girlfriend were found shot to death and their bodies wrapped in rugs and plastic in the Peabody home. The station reported that police released a BOLO alert for the suspects. They were believed to be driving a 1992 Acura and could be armed. Essex District Attorney Jon Blodgett said during a press conference that a neighbor flagged down a vehicle and told the driver a crime had been committed and police needed to come immediately. Peabody police opened up a homicide investigation after they found several body parts inside the home, CBS Boston reported. Blodgett said police had to use an X-ray machine to identify the victims. “The crime scene is very difficult right now, it’s quite messy,” Blodgett added. “We’re doing …

Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print comment The New Orleans Pelicans think that pairing Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins can help them make a major impact in the Western Conference and that it could do so quickly. Since 2012-13 With Davis and Cousins, the Pelicans now have two of the three players averaging 25 points and 10 rebounds per game this season (the other is Russell Westbrook). Cousins ranks fourth in the NBA in scoring. Davis ranks fifth. Cousins ranks 11th in rebounds per game. Davis ranks sixth. They are the only players to average at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in each of the past four seasons. Nobody else has done it more than twice. Despite Davis’ presence, the Pelicans had the second-worst rebounding differential in the NBA (minus-4.6). The only team that is worse is the Mavericks (minus-6.1). The Pelicans are taking on Cousins’ penchant for being overly emotional on the …

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla./WASHINGTON President Donald Trump may do another round of interviews for the position of national security adviser with new or existing candidates on Monday as he scrambles to fill the post following the ouster of Michael Flynn. Trump interviewed four finalists on Sunday and may meet with some of them again on Monday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters. The president interviewed acting adviser Keith Kellogg, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton, Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster and Lieutenant General Robert Caslen at his Mar-a-Lago resort. “We may have some additional meetings and names tomorrow, and may also meet with a couple of those people again,” Sanders said in Florida.

The national security adviser is one of the most senior jobs at the White House, holding broad influence over U.S. foreign policy across the globe and presiding over the National Security Council staff. …

On this Presidents’ Day, one of many American traditions we owe to George Washington, let’s reflect on another tradition he established – the farewell address. Washington’s Farewell Address first appeared – it was written, not spoken – in a Philadelphia newspaper, the American Daily Advertiser, in 1796. In those days, Philadelphia served as the nation’s capital. Today, “Washington” has morphed from a towering person of character into a tumultuous seat of political power, where Donald Trump has replaced Barack Obama in the White House. Although Presidents’ Day, first observed in honor of Washington, is on the third Monday in February, his birthday is Feb. 22. About that time each year, a member of the U.S. Senate reads Washington’s Farewell Address. More than 6,000 words long, it warns against excessive partisanship, foreign entanglements and regional differences. In a text that has been essentially forgotten by Americans, despite a recent book and news stories about it, one …

BERLIN A talking doll named Cayla has been banned by German authorities because the software inside her could be hacked, posing a security risk and allowing personal data to be revealed. The Federal Network Agency recommended that parents who bought the doll for their children destroy it. “The Cayla doll is banned in Germany,” agency head Jochen Homann said. “This is also about protecting the weakest members of society.” The software in the doll — created by the U.S. company Genesis Toys — allows a child to have a conversation with the doll. But this carried a risk of espionage and could compromise privacy, Homann said in a statement. Researcher Stefan Hessel, who had examined the toy and alerted the agency, said hackers could use an unsecure bluetooth device embedded in it to listen and talk to the child playing with it. “In a test, I was able to hack the toy even through several …

The problem started when Reed Kennedy tried to book an Airbnb house in upstate New York for New Year’s Eve. “I made a few attempts,” the 42-year-old real estate investor says. “Each time the host would reject my request, but when I went back it was still available for those dates. I realised something was going on.” Kennedy, who is African American, decided to get a white member of the group to attempt the booking. “She was able to get it immediately,” he continues. “I’d had a profile on Airbnb for three years, validated by email, Facebook and Google, as well as my driver’s licence and passport. She set up a profile with no references, no validations and was able to book immediately. At that point I realised my race was an issue.” At a time when racial tensions have exploded and racist hate crime is on the rise in the UK and US, discrimination …
