    While under house arrest in New York, Anna Sorokin has launched the podcast, “The Anna Delvey Show.” From her East Village apartment, she tells the Associated Press: “I’m on 24/7 house arrest. I’m only allowed to leave for my parole check-ins, my ICE check-ins, and for medical emergencies.” Arrested in late 2017, she was convicted in 2019 of bilking banks, hotels and wealthy New Yorkers out of $275,000. After serving three years in prison, partly at Riker’s Island jail complex, Sorokin, a German citizen, was detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and then released after posting a $10,000 bond in the fall to home confinement.

      The Los Angeles county district attorney's office has left Twitter due to barrage of what the office called vicious homophobic attacks. The account that went by the handle @LADAOffice no longer exists on Twitter. The office said Thursday that comments on Twitter ranged from homophobic and transphobic slurs to sexually explicit and graphic images. It added that they remained visible in replies to the account more than 24 hours after they were reported to Twitter. Multiple advocacy groups say attacks on LGBTQ+ users have increased substantially since Elon Musk took over the company last fall.

        The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits last week rose to its highest level since October 2021, but the labor market remains one of the healthiest parts of the U.S. economy. The Labor Department reported Thursday that U.S. applications for jobless claims were 261,000 for the week ending June 3, an increase of 28,000 from the previous week’s 233,000. Weekly jobless claims are considered representative of U.S. layoffs. The four-week moving average of claims, which evens out some of the weekly variations, rose by 7,500 to 237,250. Overall, 1.76 million people were collecting unemployment benefits the week that ended May 27.

          Asian shares have fallen after heavy selling of big-name tech stocks pushed benchmarks lower on Wall Street. Markets declined across the region and U.S. futures also were lower. Oil prices retreated. The declines came despite a sharp upward revision in Japan’s estimated economic growth for the January-March quarter, to 2.7%. That was above what analysts had expected. On Wednesday, U.S. stocks drifted to a mixed close as declines for Microsoft and other tech stocks overshadowed gains for much of the rest of the market. It’s a reversal from much of this year, as excitement about artificial intelligence and hopes for an end to interest rate hikes have buoyed the tech sector.

            Lionel Messi says he is coming to Inter Miami and joining Major League Soccer. After months of speculation, Messi announced his decision to join a Miami franchise that has been led by another global soccer icon in David Beckham since its inception but has yet to make any real splashes on the field. That will likely soon change. One of Inter Miami’s owners, Jorge Mas, tweeted out a photo of a darkly silhouetted Messi jersey shortly before the Argentinian great revealed his decision in interviews with Spanish news outlets Mundo Deportivo and Sport. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner makes his move after two years with Paris Saint-Germain.

              Instagram appears to be working on bringing an AI chatbot that can answer questions, give advice and help write messages, according to mobile-developer Alessandro Paluzzi. Users will be able to choose between 30 different personalities for the AI agents, all with the goal to "find the best w…

                Tesla may face a class-action lawsuit after 240 Black factory workers in California described rampant racism and discrimination. Workers at the electric automaker's San Francisco Bay Area plant described frequent use of racial slurs and references to the manufacturing site as a plantation or slave ship. The declarations were filed Monday in Alameda County Superior Court as part of a 2017 lawsuit filed by a former Tesla worker. The case is just one of several lawsuits alleging racism, harassment and discrimination at the Fremont plant southeast of San Francisco.

                At this stage, it is an age-old debate: which is healthier, brown rice or white rice? While experts agree that both provide valuable nutritional benefits, they have individual properties that uniquely supplement the body.

                The beach is a fun place to go to in the summer and when you are all sandy it is sometimes easier to picnic. Here are some foods that are good for a day at the beach. Take it frozen. If you are going to grill out later in the day. Buzz60’s Keri Lumm has more. 

                Before hot mix asphalt was invented, most paved roads in the USA were created by spraying hot asphalt liquid cement on top of compacted gravel. In many rural areas of the USA, this tar-and-chip method of paving is still used on thousands of miles of secondary roads. I had a medium-brown driveway that used chert road metal from the Meramec River region in Missouri.

                New Yorkers have been urged to limit their time outdoors and wear masks  as smoke from wildfires in Canada continues to blanket the city.  Many residents are left concerned over the air quality and wondering if it’s safe to run the air conditioner in these conditions.  We’ve gathered some in…


                U.S. health advisers are backing the full approval of an Alzheimer's drug that received preliminary approval last year. A panel of advisers to the Food and Drug Administration on Friday voted in favor of the infused medication from drugmakers Eisai and Biogen. The FDA granted accelerated approval in January based on early results suggesting the drug could modestly slow Alzheimer's. Friday's full-day meeting focused on more recent study results intended to show that the drug clearly benefits patients. A decision from FDA is expected by July 6. It will be significant because insurers have delayed paying for the drug until it has full approval.

                Legislative debates can be stuffy. This year's session in Nebraska was more like reality TV, featuring culture-war rhetoric and open hostility. Nebraskans couldn't get enough of it, tuning in constantly and sending thousands of comments to their state senators. Viewership soared as attention focused on a filibuster by Sen. Machaela Cavanaugh, who tried to shut down restrictions on transgender health care. The drama peaked when Sen. Julie Slama hobbled in from a hospital to cast a deciding vote to restrict abortion and transgender care. Protesters howled outside the chamber. Nebraskans now must wait until January 2024 for the next season.

                A Florida organization is helping veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental and physical ailments get back into the civilian world. The Boca Raton-based Grey Team has worked with more than 700 veterans since its founding seven years ago. The center uses a 90-day program of exercise and high-tech machines to help the veterans. Co-founder Cary Reichbach says the center is performing magic. Several of his clients agree, saying they feel better mentally and physically. One 81-year-old Vietnam vet has gone from a walker to a cane and hopes to jog 3 miles soon. Yet one expert in veterans health is skeptical of the program's selective participant pool and high-tech machines.

                A Florida professor known as “Dr. Deep” has resurfaced after spending a record 100 days living underwater. Dr. Joseph Dituri raised his face to the sun Friday for the first time since March 1. That's when he started living in an underwater lodge for scuba divers at the bottom of a lagoon in Key Largo. His stay set a new record for living underwater without depressurization, shattering the previous mark of 73 days. Dituri says his interest was never about entering the record books but rather expanding knowledge about how the body responds to extended exposure to extreme pressure and isolation. The University of South Florida educator hopes to present findings from his experiment at a conference this fall.
