Trump’s attacks on media have real-life consequences:

Almost as soon as the bombs arrived in the mail, the debate began: What role does violent political rhetoric have on these real-life acts of violence?

Well, truth be told, a version of this debate has been raging for a while. Witness the reactions to President Trump’s recent praise of a congressman for body-slamming a reporter.
But the debate has been renewed now, in the wake of the threatening deliveries to CNN’s New York office and several prominent Democratic politicians on Wednesday. The intended recipients all had something in common: They were frequent targets of right-wing criticism.
Or as the Washington Post succinctly put it: “Amid incendiary rhetoric, targets of Trump’s words become targets of bombs.”

Megyn Kelly’s show in doubt after blackface comments:

Two years of pent-up bitterness and backbiting about Megyn Kelly have finally come to a head at NBC News.

Her exit from the 9 a.m. hour of the “Today” show appears to be imminent. Variety reported on Wednesday evening that Kelly and NBC News executives have been holding conversations about a new role for her.
Two people familiar with the matter confirmed that to CNN Business and said Kelly’s show will be ending. Negotiations about the end date and other details are still underway. But Kelly will not be hosting Thursday’s program, and she is unlikely to return later, one of the people said. So “Megyn Kelly Today” may end very soon.
Kelly has parted ways with her talent agency, CAA, according to two sources, and she has hired attorney Bryan Freedman.

Taylor Swift donates money to fan’s mother who is in a coma:

Taylor Swift is helping a fan of hers in need.

The singer donated $15,500 to a GoFundMe page that is raising money for the family of a mother, Lauriann Bartell, who has been in a coma for the past three years.
Bartell’s 19-year-old daughter, Sadie Bartell, tweeted a link to the GoFundMe page and said that her mother went into a coma two days before she went to see Swift in concert. “Hey guys. I’m really nervous to post this. Please help if you can and pray for my family. I’m sorry I never said anything sooner and that I’m suddenly asking for help. I love you guys so much,” she wrote in a message she posted with the tweet.
She added, “I’m grateful to Taylor for keeping me afloat through it all.”
The woman who created the green bean casserole has died:

Across dinner tables in America, the green bean casserole is a Thanksgiving staple and has been for years. One month before the casserole’s customary time to shine, the woman who created it has passed away.

Dorcas Reilly was 92 and died of Alzheimer’s disease on October 15 in Camden, New Jersey, the Hinski-Tomlinson Funeral Home told CNN.
Reilly was one of the first full-time members of Home Economics department at Campbell’s. That’s where she came up with what the company calls “the mother of all comfort foods” in 1955.
She simply combined green beans and Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup, and called it “Green Bean Bake.”

That rectangular iceberg spotted by NASA is real:

A strikingly rectangular, naturally formed ice sheet has been spotted by NASA during a regular flyover on October 16.

The survey, code-named Operation IceBridge, is designed to watch for changes in the ice levels at several glaciers across Antarctica.
It was during one of these regular surveillance flights that senior support scientist Jeremy Harbeck spotted an unusually angular iceberg floating just off the Larsen C ice shelf.
“I often see icebergs with relatively straight edges, but I’ve not really seen one before with two corners at such right angles like this one had,” Harbeck said in a statement.
