Russia meddled in election to 'create chaos at every level,' congressional investigators say

The investigation into allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election continues, congressional investigators said on Wednesday, emphasizing at a news conference that the interference appears to be ongoing but that investigators have yet to reach conclusions on allegations of collusion.

Sen. Richard Burr, R-North Carolina, chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said that investigators had yet to determine whether Russia aimed to help any particular side in November.

“It seems that the overall theme of the Russian involvement in the U.S. election was to create chaos at every level,” he said.

Burr and the committee’s vice chairman, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Virginia, warned that the investigation has indicated that Russian agents are continuing efforts to influence results at the ballot box.

"The Russian intelligence service is determined (and) clever, and I recommend that every campaign and every election official take this very seriously as we move into this November's election, and as we move into preparation for the 2018 election," Burr said.

North Korea says ‘millions’ ready to fight US

If tensions between the United States and North Korea lead to war, the followers of Kim Jong-Un are apparently ready to fight, USA Today reported.

>> Read more trending news

North Korea's state media reported that 4.7 million of its citizens have volunteered to join or re-enlist in the military since leader Kim threatened to "tame” President Donald Trump “with fire" last week.

Previously, North Korea has claimed that its citizens have volunteered to join the military as part of propaganda campaigns to boost solidarity, according to the South Korean news agency, Yonhap.

The North Korean military enlistment claims came after Kim issued a statement Friday warning: "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire," USA Today reported.

The North Korean leader spoke out after Trump told the U.N. General Assembly in New York that if “forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

During an event at the Invictus Games Toronto 2017, a toddler seized her chance as the adults talked, and helped herself to the royal popcorn, Mashable reported.

When he notices Emily Henson’s little hands going from popcorn box to mouth, Harry jokingly removes temptation and then picks out the prime popcorn to give to the 2-year-old, the Telegraph reported

He then chats with her and her mother and other neighboring spectators. He also made silly faces and stuck his tongue out at her as the cameras watched their every move.

At one point, Emily took such a shine to the prince that she leaned on his knee as the volleyball match continued. 

Emily’s father, David Henson, is a paralympian who had both of his legs amputated when an IED exploded in Afghanistan in 2011, The Telegraph reported.

Since first competing in the Invictus Games in 2014, Henson has become a friend to Prince Harry.

Harry is no stranger to children, as he is the godfather to six of his friends’ children and believes he does a good job with them.

“I think the key to that is to be able to grow up, but also be able to stay in touch with your childhood side,” Harry told The Telegraph.

The games run until Saturday. There are 550 competitors from 17 countries taking part in 12 sports during the week-long event.

Fred and Cindy Warmbier, parents of Otto Warmbier, the University of Virginia student who was imprisoned for allegedly taking a propaganda poster in North Korea and later died, rebuked the DPRK as “terrorist” in an interview with “Fox & Friends,” their first since their son’s death.

“So what we pictured, because we’re optimists, is that Otto would be asleep and maybe in a medically induced coma, and then when our doctors here would work with him and he’d get the best care and love, that he would come out of it,” she said.

Matching other accounts of North Korean torture, Fred said their first encounter with their son after he returned to the U.S. was horrifying:

"We walked over to the plane, the engines are still humming, they had just landed … When we got halfway up the steps we heard this howling, involuntary, inhuman sound. We weren’t really certain what it was. Otto had a shaved head, he had a feeding tube coming out of his nose, he was staring blankly into space, jerking violently. He was blind. He was deaf. As we looked at him and tried to comfort him, it looked like someone had taken a pair of pliers and rearranged his bottom teeth."

The Warmbiers said that “North Korea is not a victim; they are terrorist,” that they “tortured and intentionally injured [Otto]” and that they are a “state sponsor of terror.”

President Donald Trump said Otto Warmbier was “tortured beyond belief” in a tweet praising the interview.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle broke a major royal rule in their latest public outing

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry caused quite a stir when they appeared out and about together in Toronto holding handsaccording to People. Holding hands may not seem like something that should make headlines, but in the British monarchy, public displays of affection are a big no-no.

“The couple are likely to show very little PDA, if any, to remain professional during their designated roles abroad,” she said of William and Catherine.

But Harry and Markle’s PDA means something to Meier.

“I believe an engagement is imminent,” she said to People. “I think to show PDA at such a highly publicized public event would be a very conscious decision by Prince Harry, and shows the seriousness of the relationship. Meghan would very much have taken his lead under the circumstances.”

According to Meier, there is “no formal protocol” against affection in public, but it is rare to see an unmarried royal pack in the PDA.

“It certainly makes a statement,” she said. “To show PDA as a representative of the British monarchy at such an official event says everything! Rarely in the past have we seen unmarried royals showing PDA with significant others at a public event — it’s a sure sign that things are as serious as they could be without being engaged.”

Researchers help man regain consciousness after 15 years in vegetative state

Doctors have restored a man’s consciousness after he spent 15 years in a vegetative state, the New York Daily News reports.

>> Read more trending news

The French man, 35, was in a persistent vegetative state (PVS) after a car accident when he was 20. Doctors and researchers determined that the key to helping the man regain consciousness lay in his vagus nerve, the longest cranial nerve, which runs through the abdomen, chest, neck and brain. Dr. Angela Sirigu of the Institut des Sciences Cognitives Marc Jeannerod in Lyon, France, led a team to implant a device in his chest that would stimulate his nerves.

The man showed improvement within a month. He was able to physically respond to external stimuli six months later. However, doctors say that the man is not fully recovered.

“He is still paralyzed; he cannot talk, but he can respond. Now he is more aware,” Sirigu explained, according to the Guardian. He has been able to track objects with his eyes, move his head toward a person speaking to him and even cry upon hearing his favorite song.

The study successfully served as further evidence that a person has the potential to survive a vegetative state lasting longer than 12 months, which are usually thought to be lost causes.
