Special Report: J&J knew for decades that asbestos lurked in its Baby Powder

  • A Reuters examination of many of those documents, as well as deposition and trial testimony, shows that from at least 1971 to the early 2000s, the company’s raw talc and finished powders sometimes tested positive for small amounts of asbestos, and that company executives, mine managers, scientists, doctors and lawyers fretted over the problem and how to address it while failing to disclose it to regulators or the public.
  • A third verdict, in St. Louis, was a watershed, broadening J&J;’s potential liability: The 22 plaintiffs were the first to succeed with a claim that asbestos-tainted Baby Powder and Shower to Shower talc, a longtime brand the company sold in 2012, caused ovarian cancer, which is much more common than mesothelioma.

The Army has charged a Special Forces officer with murder after relaunching an investigation when he gave an interview on Fox News

  • The Army has charged Special Forces Maj. Matthew Golsteyn with murder for allegedly shooting a suspected Taliban bomb-maker in 2010.
  • This comes more than two years after Golsteyn admitted during an interview with Fox News that he killed the Afghan man because he feared the suspected bomb-maker would murder an Afghan tribal leader if released.
  • A redacted copy of Golsteyn's charge sheet was not immediately available, Bymer said.
  • Golsteyn first admitted during a polygraph test for a CIA interview that he had killed an unarmed Afghan man after a tribal leader told him that the man had built a bomb that killed two Marines.
  • Army Criminal Investigation Command initially did not find enough evidence to charge Golsteyn, but an investigation was re-opened after the Green Beret talked about the killing during an October 2016 interview with Fox News' Bret Baier.

Cameron Esposito mixes hilarious and poignant with 'Rape Jokes'

  • Her pulpit pursuits ultimately did not come to fruition, but in Esposito's estimation, telling jokes for a living isn't all that dissimilar to celebrating mass.
  • Her brand of comedy is what makes Esposito one of the brightest and boldest voices on the scene.
  • In "Rape Jokes," her most recent comedy special, Esposito's ability to balance the hilarious with the poignant is on full display.
  • Amid a light-hearted set that includes a story about a mortifying medical emergency and anecdotes about her upbringing, she shares her experience as a survivor of sexual assault.
  • Esposito made the special available for free on her website with the option of donating to RAINN, an anti-sexual violence organization.
  • But Esposito says voices like hers have always existed.
  • And in comedy clubs across the country, Esposito says she's found that Americans aren't as different and divided as we may seem.

Sensor Tower November report: Monster Strike and My Talking Tom 2 top the leaderboards

  • Monster Strike might have been an international miss, but folks in Japan continue playing — and spending — enough that it made more revenue than any other mobile game in the world.
  • The market research firm released its findings for the games with the most revenue and downloads for November, showing what’s strong and trending in the mobile gaming market, which is worth more than $70 million in 2018.
  • Monster Strike beat out Honor of Kings and Fate/Grand Order to lead the November charts.
  • Sensor Tower head of mobile insights Randy Nelson said that almost all of this revenue came from Japan and that their research doesn’t show any special events that created a spending surge.
  • Candy Crush Saga and Clash of Clans are in the bottom half of the top revenue earnings, but Nelson said this is no surprise.

Opinion: The most damning revelation from the Cohen case

  • As a former investigator, I see the Cohen affair's most damning revelation to be the President's knowing and longtime association with a criminal, not that the criminal in question pleaded guilty to a crime that directly implicates the President of the United States (as disturbing as that is).
  • The Cohen case gives us a unique window into Trump's mindset, character and view of the rule of law.
  • We also know the President lied to the American people about his knowledge of the payment of hush money and the role of one of his top lieutenants in the affair.
  • Thus far, the Mueller probe has brought down several key associates -- Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, and George Papadopoulos, to name a few -- but none of these convicted felons was charged for actions involving the President.

How Infertility Catapulted One Entrepreneur From Clean Energy to Women's Health
