• Prosecutors: Co-pilot treated for suicidal tendencies

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    DUESSELDORF, Germany (AP) — The co-pilot of Germanwings Flight 9525 that crashed into the French Alps last week had received treatment for suicidal tendencies several years ago, prosecutors said Monday. Duesseldorf prosecutors say co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, 27, had received psychotherapy "with a note about suicidal tendencies" for several years before becoming a pilot. "In the following period, and until recently, further doctor's visits took place, resulting in sick notes without any suicidal tendencies or aggression against others being recorded," prosecutors' spokesman Ralf Herrenbrueck said in a written statement. He did not say where this treatment took place. Lubitz trained to be a pilot both in Germany and at the

    WASHINGTON (AP) — After nearly 100 years, the National Park Service holds some of the most beautiful and historic places in the country, though there's also an $11 billion backlog of unfunded maintenance and a visitor base that's aging and mostly white. With its centennial approaching in 2016, the park service will launch a campaign Thursday in New York City to raise support and introduce a new, more diverse generation of millennials and children to "America's best idea," the national parks. First lady Michelle Obama and former first lady Laura Bush will co-chair the campaign, calling on Americans to "Find Your Park" to enjoy their public lands.

  • Thousands of educators expected at Oklahoma teacher rally

    SEAN MURPHY, Associated Press | Updated: 2 hr ago

    For the second consecutive year, thousands of teachers from across Oklahoma plan to converge on the state Capitol to ask state lawmakers to appropriate more taxpayer dollars to public education. Monday’s rally is being spearheaded by the Oklahoma Education Coalition, a public school advocacy umbrella group. And participants will bring a laundry list of needs they want state lawmakers to address, including a long-term plan to improve teacher compensation, more resources for public school classrooms and increased instructional time. Unlike last year, though, Oklahoma’s top educator will be among those rallying for more classroom funding and better teacher pay.

  • Former Israeli Premier Olmert convicted in corruption case

    Updated: 2 hr ago

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was convicted Monday of unlawfully accepting money from a U.S. supporter in a retrial on corruption charges, the latest chapter in the downfall of a man who only years earlier hoped to lead the country to a historic peace agreement with the Palestinians. The conviction could land Olmert five years in prison, in addition to a six-year prison sentence he received last year in a separate bribery conviction, all but ensuring the former premier will not return to politics for many years to come. "His behavior constitutes a breach of trust which harms the public, harms morality, and harms the public's trust, in how he behaved corruptly," prosecutor Uri Korev said followin

  • Cook calls 'religious objection' laws dangerous

    Updated: 4 hr ago

    NEW YORK (AP) — Apple CEO Tim Cook said that so-called "religious objection" legislation being introduced in a number of states is dangerous and bad for business. The bills, like the one enacted last week in Indiana, create a legal framework for individuals, mostly business owners, to claim that a law or regulation mandated by the government infringes on their religious beliefs. In an op-ed piece for The Washington Post, the leader of the nation's largest corporation said that the bills under consideration "have the potential to undo decades of progress toward greater equality." He cited actions taken by lawmakers in Texas, Indiana and Arkansas, but said that a "wave of legislation" has been introduced in more than tw
