Steve Chazin, of Fairfax, Virginia, captured video on his dash camera of what he believes to be a stunning meteor during his drive back from Washington Dulles International Airport Tuesday evening.

“Huge #meteor visible from #DC at 10:57 pm.,” Chazin wrote on Twitter, sharing a video that shows a glimpse of light in the sky to the left of the road in front of him.

“It was so big you could not ignore. It was hard to stay on the road and not drive off,” Chazin told Fox News.

Chazin said he has a bachelor’s degree in psychics and a master’s degree in electrical engineering. He said he was driving on Route 50 back east toward Fairfax when he and his wife saw a fireball in the sky.

“It was one of those things that you didn’t know what you were looking at with so much yellow and bright flames,” Chazin said. “When it disappeared so quickly I realized that it must have been a meteor.”

He first believed he saw “an airplane on fire,” until spotting “a tail” on the end of the glowing mass in the sky.

“From what I know about physics, a tail happens when you hit the open atmosphere,” Chazin said. “I pulled down the window to hear a sound hit something but I realized it must have been far away, over the ocean.”

There have been no official confirmation of any meteors in the area at the time of the sighting.

Rolling Stone Magazine is facing criticism on Tuesday over a quote used on social media to highlight a piece on the rebuilding of the Notre Dame Cathedral after the devastating fire.

The article, titled, “How Should France Rebuild Notre Dame?” asks several experts and historians about the first steps in repairing the damage. Harvard University architecture historian Patricio del Real offered a new take on the meaning behind the fire.

“The building was so overburdened with meaning that its burning feels like an act of liberation,” Patricio del Real told Rolling Stone.

The magazine chose the quote to highlight the post on social media, which drew fierce backlash and was “ratio’d” on Twitter, meaning it had more replies than likes and retweets.

Erick Erickson, a conservative blogger, tweeted the comment and wrote, “Never hire an architect who studied under Patricio del Real.

Fox News emailed del Real and did not get an immediate response.

Co-owner of business where 4 slain says she has no clue why

The co-owner of a North Dakota business where four people including her husband were slain says she and others don’t know why the suspect would target anyone at the company.

Chad Isaak, 44, a chiropractor in Washburn, faces four felony counts of murder in the April 1 deaths of RJR Maintenance and Management co-owner Robert Fakler and three workers in Mandan, a town of 22,000 near the state capital of Bismarck. Isaak lived on property managed by the company, but police have said that while they have plenty of evidence — spent shell casings, a knife and gun parts — they still haven’t identified a motive. That was still the case as of Monday, Deputy Chief Lori Flaten said.

Jackie Fakler said RJR officials had few interactions with Isaak, who lived in a mobile home park the company had begun managing just last June. Marketing executive Ben Pace called those few interactions “all very normal.”

Fakler said rumors that RJR was raising Isaak’s rent or had ordered him to get rid of his dog are false.

“I don’t think anything could make sense out of it, no matter what,” she said.

Robert Fakler, 52, and employees Adam Fuehrer, 42, and married co-workers Lois Cobb, 45, and William “Bill” Cobb, 50, were shot or stabbed to death before the business opened that Monday. Jackie Fakler said the four victims typically came to work early. It also wasn’t uncommon to have an unlocked door while there were workers on the premises.

“This is like home to a lot of people, and it’s like being at home and leaving your front door unlocked while you’re home,” Pace said.

The victims were in different areas of the building and were killed within 13 minutes, according to Fakler. The Cobbs were in the office area; Fakler and Fuehrer in the back shop area.

Police followed evidence from surveillance video at RJR and other businesses to arrest Isaak three days after the slayings. Court documents allege Isaak took one of the company’s vehicles, drove about a block, then walked to his own truck parked in the area. Fakler said it wasn’t unusual for Bill Cobb to leave a company truck running with the keys in it.

“(Police) got a lot of footage everywhere,” she said. “I think they were able to track (Isaak) from here to him leaving town.”

After Isaak got back to Washburn, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) north of Mandan, he allegedly went back to work at his chiropractor office. A client of his, Dora Sorenson, has said Isaak “didn’t appear any different.”

Fakler said, “It doesn’t make sense how anybody could walk away, go to work. None of it makes sense.”

She and Pace credited police with making a quick arrest but said they are not privy to much more information than the public. Fakler said she’s relieved with the arrest “but then now you’re flooded with all the questions — why? What could have been so horrible that he had to take four people’s lives?”

Isaak remains jailed on $1 million bond. He hasn’t responded to interview requests and doesn’t yet have an attorney listed to represent him. He could enter pleas at a May 14 hearing.

Isaak could face life without parole if convicted. North Dakota doesn’t have the death penalty.

Indonesians vote in vast democratic exercise

Indonesia’s elections pit Joko Widodo, the first Indonesian president from outside the Jakarta elite, against Prabowo Subianto, a former special forces general from the era of authoritarian rule under military dictator Suharto.

Some facts and figures about Wednesday’s elections:

___

BY THE NUMBERS

Nearly 193 million Indonesians are eligible to vote in the archipelago stretching across thousands of islands and three time zones.

The 810,000 polling stations have more than 1.6 million bottles of halal-certified indelible ink ready. Voters will dip a finger in the ink after casting their votes as an anti-fraud measure.

The Election Commission estimates more than 17 million people are involved in ensuring the elections run smoothly, including volunteers, guards and registered witnesses for every polling station.

About 20,500 candidates are standing for the presidency, the Senate and legislatures at the national, provincial and district levels.

Staging the election will cost about $1.9 billion.

___

DEMOCRATIC OUTPOST

After three decades of military rule ended in 1998, Indonesia has become the most robust democracy in Southeast Asia, a region where authoritarian governments and stage-managed elections are the norm.

But despite being the world’s most populous Muslim nation, the third-largest democracy and a member of the Group of 20 major economies, Indonesia has a low profile on the world stage. That is slowly changing, with the country recently becoming a non-permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, announcing a bid to host the 2032 Olympics and analysts forecasting its economy to be among the world’s five largest by 2030.

Indonesia candidates: Metal fan, cleric, soldier, tycoon

Westlake Legal Group indonesia-candidates-metal-fan-cleric-soldier-tycoon Indonesia candidates: Metal fan, cleric, soldier, tycoon JAKARTA, Indonesia fox-news/world/world-regions/asia fox-news/world fnc/world fnc bb8e981e-091e-5010-b6c9-2aae16124ee7 Associated Press article

Indonesia’s presidential election Wednesday pits incumbent Joko Widodo against former special forces Gen. Prabowo Subianto in a repeat of the 2014 contest. Widodo, a furniture exporter and heavy metal fan who had a meteoric rise in Indonesian politics, chose a conservative Muslim cleric as his vice presidential candidate. Subianto’s running mate is a self-made tycoon.

A look at the presidential and vice presidential candidates:

___

JOKO WIDODO

Usually known as Jokowi, Widodo began his political career in the central Javanese city of Solo and hit the big time when he became governor of Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital, in 2012. A down-to-earth style and reputation for clean governance helped propel him to the presidency in 2014.

Widodo, 57, was likened to Barack Obama, and progressive voters hoped that as the first Indonesian president from outside the Jakarta elite he would address a catalog of major human rights abuses in the country. But while in office, he has been unwilling to press for accountability that threatens powerful institutions such as the military. Instead he has emphasized nationalism while also fending off attacks that he is insufficiently Muslim.

Widodo’s signature policy has been improving Indonesia’s poor infrastructure. He also continued the poverty alleviation policies of his predecessor.

___

MA’RUF AMIN

One of the most important religious figures in Muslim-majority Indonesia, Amin was selected as Widodo’s running mate to shore up his support among pious Muslims. He was chairman of Majelis Ulama Indonesia, the country’s council of Islamic leaders, and supreme leader of Nahdlatul Ulama, the world’s largest Muslim organization.

But an avuncular persona belies Amin’s reactionary beliefs. Amin, 76, has been a vocal supporter and drafter of fatwas against religious minorities and LGBT people. Human Rights Watch says the fatwas, or edicts, have legitimized increasingly hateful rhetoric by government officials against LGBT people, and in some cases fueled deadly violence by Islamic militants against religious minorities.

___

PRABOWO SUBIANTO

Subianto, a former special forces general who was dismissed from the military in 1998, is making his second run at the presidency after narrowly losing to Widodo in 2014. A strident nationalist, he has run a fear-based campaign, highlighting what he sees as Indonesia’s weakness and the risk of exploitation by foreign powers or disintegration.

Subianto, 67, has sometimes highlighted a novel about a future world war that briefly mentions Indonesia as part of the basis for those fears. He was a star officer during the Suharto era and married the dictator’s daughter. After Suharto was forced from office by social and economic chaos in 1998, Subianto was dismissed from the military. Soldiers under his command had kidnapped student activists, some of whom remain missing.

___

SANDIAGA UNO

A self-made tycoon and deputy governor of Jakarta, Uno — commonly known as Sandi — has reportedly spent millions of his own money on the campaign. Articulate and youthful looking at 49, he has been more active on the campaign trail than his running mate and has been the ticket’s way of appealing to the burgeoning number of young voters.

Nearly a decade ago, Uno was profiled by CNN as an inspirational entrepreneur from humble roots who claimed to have the ear of then Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. His role in the 2019 campaign has raised his profile nationally and he is already talked about as a possible 2024 presidential candidate.

A New Mexico man faces multiple charges after police found over four dozen diamonds in a bag inside his anal cavity that he allegedly planned on trading for drugs, KOB 4 reported.

Twenty-three-year-old Eusebio Padilla was arrested on charges including receiving stolen property and tampering with evidence after what began as a routine traffic stop on April 7. Police pulled him over for allegedly riding a motorcycle without a license plate.

2 MEN CHARGED IN PHILADELPHIA TO PITTSBURGH DRUG RING BUST

Police said they spotted a knife on Padilla and patted him down. He was caught attempting to remove “a baggy” from his rear at some point during the traffic stop, according to a criminal complaint filed in Albuquerque’s Metropolitan Court.

Police said they found 44 diamonds inside the bag recovered from Padilla’s rectum. The man allegedly told officers that he obtained the jewels from his uncle who “usually has stolen items,” KOB 4 reported.

The criminal complaint alleges that Padilla planned on trading the rare gemstones for drugs. It is not known if Padilla has an attorney.

Nearly 60,000 known or suspected illegal immigrants are being held in federal prisons, according to a report obtained by Fox News Tuesday from the Department of Justice.

G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, joined ‘The Ingraham Angle’ to discuss the DOJ’s findings.

Quoting the report, he said “criminal aliens” make up 21 percent of those in the Federal Bureau of Prisons custody and 38 percent of those in Marshals custody.

Terwilliger lamented that a “staggering” amount of resources are being diverted to fighting illegal immigration at the expense other problems like a rising opioid epidemic and rising crime rates in certain areas.

“We’re not talking about the non-violent simple possession (drug charges), these are actually drug traffickers and a lot of times these are individuals who are apprehended with massive loads who are walking across the border,” he said.

The 2020 Toyota Highlander aims for the top at the New York International Auto Show

Forget Lexus, this December is going to be one to remember for Toyota Highlander fans, because that’s when the all-new model unveiled at the New York International Auto Show goes on sale.

The three-row Highlander is built on Toyota’s latest vehicle architecture, which is shared with its top-selling Rav4 and Camry, and promises to bring a new level of refinement to the big SUV.

The 2020 model is over two inches longer than the one it replaces, with all of that length earmarked toward increasing the size of the cargo area to help the Highlander better compete with its top rival, the behemoth Honda Pilot.

The Highlander will be offered with seating for either seven or eight and the choice of a conventional V6 engine or hybrid powertrain.

The 3.5-liter V6 is rated at 295 hp and comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It can tow up to 5,000 pounds and is available with an all-wheel-drive system that can improve handling through a torque-vectoring function that shifts power from side to side in turns, and has several drive modes optimized for a variety of surfaces including mud and sand.

There’s also a hybrid model that will follow next February, and it’s very different than the outgoing one. The powertrain combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a pair of motors mounted coaxially within the transaxle. One helps propel the car and both chip in to recharge the battery pack during braking and when there’s an excess of power being produced.

According to Toyota, front-wheel-drive models are expected to get an EPA combined rating of 34 mpg, which is up from 29 mpg for the current Highlander Hybrid. An all-wheel-drive hybrid adds a third electric motor that powers just the rear wheels, which is a similar set-up to what the Toyota Rav4 hybrid has.

Toyota’s Safety Sense 2.0 package of semi-autonomous driver aids is standard across all models and includes automatic emergency brakes and adaptive cruise control, while a blind spot alert and self-braking parking sonar assist are optional.

The interior has been upgraded with more soft-touch surfaces, and the top of the line Platinum trim features a 1,200-watt 11-speaker audio system, 360-degree camera and a 12.3-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system equipped with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a WiFi hotspot.

2020 Lincoln Corsair looks to make waves in the compact luxury SUV segment

Westlake Legal Group 2020-lincoln-corsair-looks-to-make-waves-in-the-compact-luxury-suv-segment 2020 Lincoln Corsair looks to make waves in the compact luxury SUV segment Gary Gastelu fox-news/news-events/new-york-auto-show fox-news/auto/style/suv fox-news/auto/make/lincoln fox-news/auto/attributes/luxury fox news fnc/auto fnc article ae97c766-e6f8-5097-9a0c-f58b718def68

Lincoln is hoping to steal sales from other high-end automakers with a new small crossover that shares its name with high seas privateers.

The Corsair dusts off an old model moniker from the company’s archives that was previously used on an Edsel and a British-built Ford and was chosen because it evokes a Latin word that means “journey.”

Like its predecessor, the Corsair shares its platform with the Ford Escape, which is also new for 2020, but features distinctive styling and a few engineering tweaks to make it more luxurious These include an “integral bush” rear suspension system and a composite “sound wall” in the engine compartment to better insulate the cabin from noise.

(Fox News Autos)

Lincoln design director David Woodhouse said the Corsair’s curvaceous styling is meant to be more evocative of Monica Belucci than The Predator, which comes across as an indirect shot across the bow of the radically-styled Lexus NX, one of its chief rivals.

The dashboard echoes the layered look of the ones in the larger Aviator and Navigator and is trimmed in more upscale materials that some competitors in the Corsair’s class. It’s equipped with digital displays, available 24-way adjustable massaging seats and a sliding back seat that can provide as much legroom as some three-row SUVs.

The Corsair can be had at launch with either a 250 hp 2.0-liter or 280 hp 2.3-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, both matched to 8-speed transmissions and available with all-wheel-drive. A plug-in hybrid powertrain of yet to be revealed specification will follow.

Police: Good Samaritans thwart kidnaping in San Francisco

Good Samaritans stopped the attempted kidnapping of a 2-year-old boy by an Australian disc jockey from a busy San Francisco street, police said Tuesday.

Police arrested Roscoe Bradley Holyoake, 34, of Perth, Australia, on Friday.

Australia media reports Holyoake is a popular disc jockey.

The toddler was holding his mother’s hand while they walked in the Castro neighborhood when Holyoake snatched the boy, San Francisco police say.

Holyoake ran for about half a block with the mother and several bystanders in pursuit before the bystanders grabbed and held him until police arrived.

Holyoake appeared briefly in court Tuesday and was ordered to return Thursday to enter a plea.

His attorney Steve Olmo told media outside court that Holyoake doesn’t have a criminal record and was in San Francisco on business.

Holyoake remained in San Francisco County Jail on $500,000 bail.
