Dutcher, 56, of Tomah, said he had been unable to carry out his threat, having been armed only with a slingshot, and no one took him seriously. Dutcher had written on Facebook that he planned to attend a July 2, 2015 event in La Crosse, Wisconsin, where Obama was giving a speech, and hoped to “get a clear shot at the pretend president.

U.S. justices reject Gorsuch in win for disabled student

The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected legal reasoning used by President Donald Trump’s high court nominee Neil Gorsuch in his role as an appellate judge, ruling in favor of an autistic student who said he was denied an adequate education. The 8-0 ruling, authored by conservative Chief Justice John Roberts, was issued at the same time Gorsuch was facing questions during his Senate confirmation hearing about a 2008 case in which he ruled against an autistic child who sought a public education more tailored to his needs. The Supreme Court ruled that public schools must offer disabled students a special educational program sufficiently ambitious to ensure they make progress.

Is 90 the New 80? Most 90-Somethings Feel Healthy

Few 90-somethings in the study showed signs of depression or cognitive problems, although they took a lot of medications and had difficulty getting around, according to the findings, released today (March 20) in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. “These data provide a snapshot of Americans’ health at age 90, which will help our health care system prepare for the needs of long-lived adults,” said the study’s lead author, Michelle Odden, an assistant professor of epidemiology at Oregon State University. The findings suggest that, despite experiencing chronic diseases and disability, Americans over the age of 90 could adapt to their changing health needs and remain positive about their health, Odden told Live Science.

Apple’s new red iPhones won’t be (RED) in China; here’s a few possible reasons why

Apple on Tuesday announced the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus PRODUCT(RED) models. The two special-edition devices are identical to the regular iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in terms of hardware, but feature unique red backplates and, what’s more important, a chunk of all proceeds from each device sale goes to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS.

Samsung to cut battery charge functionality in all those Note 7 holdouts that remain

Samsung is done with the Note 7 saga, it seems, as it plans to push out an update that will completely stop recharging for those who still hold on to their dear phablet in Korea, endangering themselves and maybe others in the process. There are still a bunch of folks who find it hard to part with the Note 7, and there are even online groups and threads for owners of active Note 7 units, and Samsung apparently will be targeting those in the final acts of the Vikings Note 7 saga.
US carriers already did something similar by shutting down access to … Read Full Thread
