    Growing up on a cattle ranch in Wyoming, I learned to survive by being scrappy enough to make-do and hungry enough to keep moving.   Department stores were big buildings in places 100 miles away, and if a rattlesnake came between me and where I wanted to go, guess who came out on top?   As a kid I learned a lot about mental toughness. When I joined the FBI, I learned even more.

  • Airstrikes kill 23 in Syria, Russia denies involvement

    Updated: 12 hr ago

    BEIRUT (AP) — A wave of late night airstrikes pummeled the northwestern Syrian city of Idlib, killing at least 23 people, wounding dozens and trapping several under the rubble of their homes, opposition activists said Tuesday. At least seven children were among those killed in the strikes, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group that relies on local activists. The Observatory said Russia carried out the airstrikes on the city, which is controlled by several insurgent groups, including a local al-Qaida affiliate known as the Nusra Front, but Moscow denied any involvement.

    ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — A court on Tuesday convicted a former Miss Turkey of insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan through social media postings and gave her a 14-month suspended sentence, amid deepening concerns that the country is swaying toward an increasingly authoritarian form of rule. The court in Istanbul found 27-year-old model Merve Buyuksarac guilty of insulting a public official but immediately suspended the sentence on condition that she does not reoffend within the next five years. Her lawyer, Emre Telci, said he would file a formal objection to the verdict and appeal her case at the Strasbourg, France-based European Court of Justice.

    Updated: 13 hr ago

    BERLIN (AP) — German electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk have suffered a legal setback at Germany's highest court in a suit over a two-second sample. The verdict is a victory for German music producer Moses Pelham, who had used a beat from Kraftwerk's 1977 work "Metall auf Metall" without permission or payment. Pelham had argued that restricting the use of even short sequences would limit his artistic freedom because rap and hip hop rely heavily on sampling. Tuesday's ruling by Germany's Constitutional Court means lower courts will have to reconsider several verdicts in Kraftwerk's favor. The court left open the possibility that Parliament could make payment for samples obligatory.

  • Trump gets chance for tax cut by moving trademarks to Delaware

    Updated: 13 hr ago

    NEW YORK — As Donald Trump prepared for the Republican primaries, he transferred dozens of his most prized assets, the “Trump” trademarks that adorn everything from hotels to ties to his U.S. golf courses, into a new Delaware-based company — a move that offers him a chance to cut his income-tax bills. By shifting more than 110 registered or pending trademarks to Delaware, Trump consolidated them in a state that doesn’t tax income from royalties on intellectual property. Among the trademarks he moved are his own name and those of some of his best-known properties, including “Trump National Golf Club,” “Trump Tower” and “Mar-a-Lago,” his private club in Palm Beach, Florida, according to records from the U.S. Pat

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota wildlife official is trying to combat a scene she sees several times every summer: A mom and her children show up carrying a box with holes poked in the top and a baby wild animal inside. The family thinks they've rescued it from apparent abandonment, but that's far from the truth, Thea Miller Ryan says, because the rescue can be harmful, even deadly. So, with the backdrop of the bison calf in Yellowstone that had to be euthanized this month after tourists put it in their car, Ryan is taking to social media to teach people to let nature take its course. "I know that it's not going to have a happy ending," Miller said of any rescued animal's future. "...

    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Call it a big CAT scan. Louisiana State University's live tiger mascot was sedated this past weekend and brought to a human cancer center near campus where he'll be treated for a rare cancer. At the hospital, Mike VI received a CT scan and a radiation simulation. During the simulation, doctors set up devices that will keep the 420-pound tiger in position for precisely targeted radiotherapy to treat a tumor on his face. The LSU veterinary school says in a statement that doctors haven't yet decided whether to treat Mike on one day or over two or three days. They say that without treatment Mike could live one or two months, but treatment could extend that to one or two years.
