Former Subway Pitchman Faces Lawsuit From 1 of His Victims

A girl whose attorney says she’s one of the victims in the sex crimes case that led to former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle being sentenced to more than 15 years in prison is suing the disgraced Indiana man and a former associate, seeking at least $300,000 in damages. The federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in Indianapolis names Fogle and the former head of his anti-obesity charity, Russell Taylor. Taylor’s wife is also a defendant in the suit, which seeks at least $150,000 in damages each from her h...

    Considering there seems to be a lot of proof that Subway knew about the sex abuse claims and hushed it up/refused to let him go as spokesman, maybe an investigation is in order as to whether they can be held accountable, as well.

Audit faults Clinton, others for management of electronic communications

Audit faults Clinton, others for management of electronic communications

Hillary Clinton disregarded State Department cybersecurity guidelines by using a private email account and server, an internal audit found Wednesday. Her staff twice brushed aside specific concerns that she wasn’t following federal rules. The inspector general’s review also revealed that hacking attempts forced then-Secretary of State Clinton off email at one point in 2011, though she insists the personal server she used was never breached. Clinton and several of her senior staff declined to ...

Hillary Clinton’s viral nightmare: A video of her ‘lying for 13 minutes’

Hillary Clinton’s viral nightmare: A video of her ‘lying for 13 minutes’

You could say that it all depends on how you define “lie.” Or, perhaps, that it’s hell to have a public record. Either way, Hillary Clinton’s vast résumé of, shall we say, inconsistencies, is the dog that caught the car and won’t let go. A viral video collection of her comments on various subjects through the years is bestirring Republican hearts. To those who’d rather vote for a reality show host than a Clinton, the video merely confirms what they’ve believed all along. For independents and ...

Man Sucker-Punched On LES "Because You Look Like Shia LaBeouf"

"I was walking up the stairs," he remembers. "I had my head down—there were people in front of me—just to make sure I wasn't going to fall." He continued: Licato says he lost consciousness when he landed at the foot of the stairs, and when he came to his face was covered in blood, his glasses broken in half. A couple rushed to his aid and asked, "Did you know that guy?" The couple, according to Licato, described the attacker as in his mid-20s, 6 foot to 6-foot-3, and muscular, like a frat bo...

The Little-Known Robot Taxi That Could Outrun Google and Uber

DeNA automotive head Hiroshi Nakajima announcing the Robot Taxi partnership with ZMP in May “If you think of the technologies needed to call [robotic] vehicles in a campus or inner-city environment, routing, scheduling and interface to devices, like the phone, become critical,” says J. Christian Gerdes, a mechanical engineering professor at Stanford. “So it isn’t surprising that new players [like mobile companies like DeNA] could play a key role. I consider automated vehicles to be a big puzz...

China unveils 'straddling bus' design to beat traffic jams

China unveils 'straddling bus' design to beat traffic jams

The concept vehicle is designed to float above the clogged-up streets of some of the country’s biggest cities The “straddling bus”, which owes more to Blade Runner than China’s car-clogged highways, is supported by two legs that run along rails laid along the roadside. Those legs allow the TEB’s giant frame to glide high above the gridlock at speeds of up to 60km per hour. Equally, vehicles that are less than two metres high will be able to drive freely underneath the bus, even when it is sta...

Ex-Browns GM explains who's to blame for drafting Johnny Manziel

Ex-Browns GM explains who's to blame for drafting Johnny Manziel

One of the downsides of being an NFL GM is you get tied to the players taken by your team, even if you weren't really thrilled about those players being taken. Put another way: different general managers have different levels of power and sometimes don't get final say. Speaking to CBS Sports Radio's Damon Amendolara on Monday night, Farmer made it clear that in many cases there is not one person absolutely responsible for drafting any given player. "There are very few decisions made in anybod...

NASA researchers are working on a laser propulsion system that could get to Mars in 3 days

NASA researchers are working on a laser propulsion system that could get to Mars in 3 days

Despite how far we've come in space exploration, one thing still holding us back from interstellar travel is our slow spacecraft. While we're able to propel particles to close to the speed of light in the lab, we're struggling to even accelerate spacecraft to beyond 3 percent of that. With our current technology, it's estimated it'll take humans around five months to reach Mars. But NASA scientist Philip Lubin is working on a system where lasers propel spacecraft with giant sails to the Re...

"What we would like to do is to orbit Mars, make a landing, and rove around for reconnaissance in one mission, which is quite a challenge," China National Space Ad...

That Insane, $81M Bangladesh Bank Heist? Here’s What We Know

That Insane, $81M Bangladesh Bank Heist? Here’s What We Know

When reports surfaced in February of a spectacular bank hack that sucked $81 million from accounts at Bangladesh Bank in just hours, news headlines snickered over a typo that prevented the hackers from stealing the full $1 billion they were after. Last week the snickering stopped with new reports that the hackers struck a second bank, and possibly others—though authorities won’t say if those heists were equally successful. Bank hacks have traditionally focused on stealing the login credential...
