Ryan Kramer is used to making spreadsheets. He graduated from high school at age 14, received an undergraduate degree in aerospace engineering at 18, and a master’s in engineering management at 19. Ten years later, Kramer finds himself making spreadsheets for something other than schoolwork -- he uses them to keep track of his 20 half siblings.

Kramer found out he was donor-conceived at a very young age. "I naturally kind of got curious. I came to my mom one day and said, 'So, did my dad die or what?'"

He set off on a mission to find his sperm-donor dad. Kramer tried everything from sending a letter to the sperm bank at seven years old, to co-founding the Donor Sibling Registry (DSR) w

For months, Boeing has said it had no idea that a new automated system in the 737 Max jet, which played a role in two fatal crashes, was unsafe.

But on Friday, the company gave lawmakers a transcript revealing that a top pilot working on the plane had raised concerns about the system in messages to a colleague in 2016, more than two years before the Max was grounded because of the accidents, which left 346 people dead.

In the messages, the pilot, Mark Forkner, who played a central role in the development of the plane, complained that the system, known as MCAS, was acting unpredictably in a flight simulator: "It’s running rampant."

The messages are from November 2016, months before t

A North Carolina teenager has reached a plea deal to avoid facing five charges after nude selfies of himself were found on his phone.


A Fayetteville, North Carolina teenager has reached a plea deal to avoid being charged with multiple sexual exploitation counts after his cell phone was found to contain nude selfies of himself. Seventeen-year-old Cormega Copening, who took the photos of himself when he was 16, agreed to the deal in order to avoid possible jail time and being registered as a sex offender. As part of the plea, the teen agreed to random police searches without warrant for one year as well as other penalties, Fusion reports. The teenager was listed as both the vic

Should Donald Trump be removed from the office of the president because he is psychologically unfit to uphold his constitutional duties?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently said, "I pray for the president of the United States. I wish that his family, or his administration or his staff would have an intervention. … Maybe he wants to take a leave of absence."

Pelosi also said, "Trump is too mentally impaired to function as president."

Is being unfit grounds to impeach a president? James Madison appears to have thought so when he said, during the debates of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, that a president could be removed for "incapacity, negligence or perfidy." Rep. Al Green,

KABUL, Afghanistan - The world continues down a path of depravity and evil as a cowardly murderer bent on a suicide mission, used a bomb to kill at least 63 people and wounded 182 in an explosion at a packed wedding hall Saturday night in Kabul, Afghanistan, according to the country's Interior Ministry.

The blast occurred near the stage where musicians were and "all the youths, children and all the people who were there were killed," witness Gul Mohammad told The Associated Press news agency.

Both the Bride and Groom survived. The groom, Mirwais Elmi, recalled greeting smiling guests in the afternoon, before seeing their bodies being carried out hours later.

The attack "changed my h

At the very end of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s MSNBC town hall on Wednesday night, host Chris Hayes asked Warren about all the people who say they like her, but are worried she couldn’t beat President Donald Trump in the general election.

Warren, and many of the other women candidates running in 2020, have been getting this question a lot lately: about whether or not they are "electable." Warren’s response? Political conventional wisdom about presidents is often wrong.

"I remember when people said Barack Obama couldn’t be elected," Warren responded. "I remember when people said Donald Trump couldn’t be elected. And here we are."

Warren has a point; during this time in 2016, political pu

Having a foil benefits both the 70-something candidates and spells potential bad news for the rest of the large field that could get left behind.

WASHINGTON — If New Hampshire Democrats voted today, and the most recent polling is correct, the only candidates who would get any delegates at all from the first-in-the-nation primary would be Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

The two are not only leading the packed field of 2020 presidential contenders, but are the only contenders who have clearly separated themselves from the rest of the crowd in polling and surpassed the crucial 15 percent threshold that candidates need to hit to be awarded delegates.

Of course, the election is not today.

NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Cohen took a last swipe at President Donald Trump while reporting to federal prison Monday to start a three-year sentence for crimes including tax evasion and campaign finance violations related to hush-money payments made to protect his former boss.

Cohen, who turned on Trump last summer after a decade as his personal lawyer, fixer and "take a bullet" loyalist, didn’t mention the president by name, but he left little doubt about whom he blamed for his incarceration.

"I hope that when I rejoin my family and friends that the country will be in a place without xenophobia, injustice and lies at the helm of our country," Cohen told reporters outside his Manhattan ap

Evelyn Francis McHale was a 23-year-old American bookkeeper who committed suicide by jumping off the 86th floor Observation Deck of the Empire State Building in New York City on May 1, 1947.

She was the same age as my girlfriend.

I became interested in the story after watching a 16 hour documentary This week about the history of New York City.

Her body landed on the roof of a United Nations limousine parked on 34th Street.

The photograph of her body was taken just four minutes after she hit the car. The photo was taken by photography student Robert Wiles and has become the iconic suicide photograph, referred to as "the most beautiful suicide".

Still clutching her pearl necklac
