A set of human remains discovered in Utah canyon on Sunday may be those of a woman who was last seen going for a run over a year ago, according to officials.

The Utah County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release a man contacted authorities around 8:30 p.m. to report he discovered the remains while climbing in American Fork Canyon near the Swinging Bridge picnic site, located about 30 miles south of Salt Lake City.

“The man said he hikes regularly in that area but had never before hiked in this particular ravine,” police said.

Sgt. Spencer Cannon told FOX13 the area was “very difficult to get up” on the north side of the canyon, about 850 feet from the floor, and was not a place where people commonly go hiking.

“For whatever reason, this gentleman decided he wanted to go up this ravine,” Cannon said

Investigators discovered several personal items located with the remains that are consistent with descriptions of property known to be owned by 24-year-old Jerika Binks, according to police.

Binks was last seen on Feb. 18, 2018 when she told her roommate that she was going for a run. Trail cameras picked her up as Binks ran down the Timpanogos Cave Trail, but that was the only sign of her, according to FOX13.

An extensive search of the canyon afterward by Utah County Search and Rescue turned up nothing until the discovery Sunday.

Cannon told FOX13 that Binks was a fit runner and hiker, and loved being outdoors.

“Based on what we know of her likes and her interests, it’s not a surprise,” Cannon said.

Police said while there was evidence of injury, there is “no evidence at this stage of the investigation” to suggest foul play was involved.

The remains were recovered by the sheriff’s office on Monday, and have been taken to the medical examiner’s office to identify them and determine a cause of death.

An Oregon mother’s careful attention to detail may have saved her then-2-year-old daughter’s life after she noticed an odd glimmer in her child’s eye while looking at a photograph.

“I knew something was wrong with Gracie because her eye would be glowing, and it looked like she had a lazy eye,” Elly Smith, of Oregon, told SWNS, of her now 5-year-old daughter. “I made her an appointment the day I noticed it and her doctor referred us to an eye doctor. I could tell something was wrong there and noticed the doctor’s chest getting red – I was just asking what was wrong.”

MOM WHO LOST ARM, LEGS AFTER DOG BITE RAISES AWARENESS ON DANGERS OF SEPSIS

Smith said that in May 2016, doctors found several tumors in Gracie’s eye, and diagnosed her with retinoblastoma. The cancer starts in the retina, and is the most common type of eye cancer in children, according to the American Cancer Society. If the tumors are not treated, they can grow and fill the eyeball causing other symptoms including more tumors, pressure in the eye or glaucoma.

WOMAN LEFT PARTIALLY PARALYZED AFTER NECK CRACKING TRIGGERS STROKE

Gracie was seen by specialists at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, who determined the best course of action would be to remove her eye and eventually replace it with a prosthetic one.

One of the difficult parts of the diagnosis was determining how to tell their toddler in a way she could understand it, Smith said. Gracie underwent eye removal surgery on June 1, 2016, and began chemotherapy two weeks later. Three months after surgery, she received her prosthetic eye, SWNS reported.

“Gracie was fine with it,” Smith, who said her daughter has made a full recovery, told the news outlet. “She is so resilient. When they make the eye you get to choose something to put on the top so you know which is the top of the eye – Gracie chose a horse.”

A Canadian man died while vacationing in Thailand in an apparent zipline incident, authorities said.

The victim, who has not been officially named, was ziplining at the popular attraction Flight of the Gibbon in Chiang Mai, the BBC reported.

The cable “gave way” after the 25-year-old man was released at the start of the attraction Saturday, the BBC reported, citing local media. The man fell about 40 feet from the zipline and fell down a hill, sources told the media outlet.

The attraction reportedly closed as authorities investigate the incident. Authorities were probing whether the weight limit of the attraction was exceeded and if there was any negligence on the operators’ behalf.

Milk Bar to change famous ‘Crack Pie’ name after increasing criticism

Westlake Legal Group milk-bar-to-change-famous-crack-pie-name-after-increasing-criticism Milk Bar to change famous 'Crack Pie' name after increasing criticism fox-news/food-drink/food fox news fnc/food-drink fnc article Alexandra Deabler 92dbc1af-9044-5802-a6df-7b185a94e10c

Esteemed bakery Milk Bar is changing the name of its most popular pie, “Crack Pie,” after facing criticism from customers and food critics over its reference to the addictive nature of crack cocaine.

The iconic dessert chain confirmed that it would be updating the name of its famous “Crack Pie” to “Milk Bar Pie” over concerns that the name was “getting in the way of letting the gooey, buttery slice bring happiness.”

RESTAURANT CHANGING NAME OF ‘CRACK FRIES’ BECAUSE DRUG EPIDEMIC ‘IS NOT FUNNY’

Christina Tossi, the creator of the Crack Pie and the other decadent dessert offerings, announced the eponymous name change in a letter posted on the bakery’s public blog.

“While change is never easy, we feel this is the right decision. Not everything will happen at once — the next few weeks and months will be a transition period. Your support means everything to us and if you have feelings or questions about it, we’re always here. Come by for a slice of pie, a corn cookie or just a friendly face — as it’s been since day one, our only mission is to inspire a little moment of joy in your day,” Tossi’s note read.

The bakery also included a longer statement to the Milk Bar team, writing the “name Crack Pie falls short of this mission” to “spread joy and inspire celebration.”

Several have come out against restaurants and food critics using the phrase “crack” to describe something addictively delicious, noting the term is particularly harmful to those struggling with addiction and to communities that have been affected by the crack epidemic of the 1980s and 1990s.

San Francisco Chronicle food critic, Soleil Ho, called out Milk Bar and its creator for its “Crack Pie.”

“Writers have called its creator, chef Christina Tosi, a “crack dealer” and used the language of addiction to describe the dish. Honestly, the company should have done the right thing and changed it by now,” Ho wrote.

Tosi is not the only one who faced increasing backlash over naming one of her offerings after the devastating drug.

Hopcat in Michigan announced it was rebranding its popular “Crack Fries” to a more neutral “Cosmik Fries.”

“We chose the name more than 11 years ago as a reference to the addictive quality of the fries and their cracked pepper seasoning, without consideration for those the drug negatively affected. We were wrong,” Mark Gray, BarFly Ventures CEO, said in a Dec. 10 blog post. “The crack epidemic and the lasting impact on those it affects is not funny and never was.”

Bloodsucking worms found in Florida rattlesnake species alarm researchers: It’s a ‘nasty situation’

While examining a deceased pygmy rattlesnake last summer, a Florida professor and a biology fellow were stunned as they watched wiggling parasitic worms slowly emerge from the serpent’s open mouth.

Dr. Terence Farrell, who teaches biology at Stetson University in DeLand, has been studying the venomous rattlesnake species for decades — and even he admits he found the scene “pretty alarming.”

“We conducted research and found that these types of parasites (pentastome) have never been found in pygmy rattlesnakes before,” Farrell said in a statement released by Stetson University on Friday.

‘HUGE’ RATTLESNAKE’S LOUD WARNING TO MISSISSIPPI MAN GOES VIRAL

Since then, Farrell and his students have tested a total of three pygmy rattlesnakes and found the same type of bloodsucking parasitic worms in each of the reptile’s lungs and near their tracheas. The researchers then collaborated with the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine to conduct tests on the creatures’ DNA to determine how the parasites were being introduced.

They discovered the parasite species appeared to be from southeast Asia, indicating they may be connected to Burmese pythons, a species native to that particular region that also happens to be an invasive species in the Sunshine State. They published their findings in the Herpetological Review in March.

The Florida Wildlife Commission has been encouraging the public to “remove and kill pythons from private lands whenever possible.” The South Florida Water Management District even created a python elimination program in 2017 to protect the Everglades and eliminate the snakes from public lands.

“Tens of thousands of invasive Burmese pythons are estimated to be present in the Everglades,” the United States Geological Survey (USGS) says. Officials believe the snakes multiplied over the years, turning into an invasive species after careless pet owners released the exotic animals in swamps.

Though Burmese pythons are more heavily populated in the southern portion of the state, Farrell and his team say they’ve found evidence of the parasite up to 100 miles away in Central Florida.

“Our research shows that the parasites are moving north rapidly along the peninsula and appear to have some major health effects on pygmy rattlesnakes,” explained Farrell

At the moment, the parasites don’t appear to pose a threat to humans.

“There are relatives of this parasite that people have gotten by eating raw snakes. There isn’t a human health concern at this time,” Farrell confirmed to USA Today.

But the researchers are concerned about the impact it will have on pygmy rattlesnakes.

“The parasites that were found in the pygmy rattlesnakes were larger than the ones found in Burmese pythons,” Farrell explained. “It’s a nasty situation because the pygmy rattlesnakes haven’t evolved or developed defenses against the parasite.”

The possibility of the parasites spreading beyond Florida is even more cause for concern.

“The research tells us that there’s a whole new concern about invasive species and the diseases and parasites that they bring with them. This parasite isn’t just a Florida problem. We have no idea how much of the U.S. this parasite will spread and move into, which may cause it to become a nationwide problem in a few years,” Farrell added.

Stressing transparency in government, more than a half-dozen Democrats running for the White House have released their tax returns.

And while the filings are a way for the Democratic candidates to spotlight Republican President Trump’s refusal to release his taxes — both as a 2016 White House candidate and as a sitting president — the returns also have revealed that some of the biggest class warriors of the 2020 field happen to be among the wealthiest.

AT FOX NEWS TOWN HALL, BERNIE SANDERS MAKES NO APOLOGIES FOR HIS WEALTH

“This year, we had $560,000 in income,” Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont explained Monday night during a Fox News town hall.

Minutes before the start of the town hall in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, the independent senator from Vermont’s presidential campaign released his 2018 returns. According to the figures, Sanders and his wife Jane paid a 26 percent effective tax rate on $561,293 in income, and made more than $1 million in both 2016 and 2017. Nearly $400,000 of his income last year came from book sales.

Sanders doubled down on his previous defenses of his wealth, which even some progressives have criticized considering his advocacy for an increase in the tax rates the wealthiest Americans pay.

2020 CANDIDATES’ TAX RETURNS: BY THE NUMBERS

“In my and my wife’s case, I wrote a pretty good book. It was a bestseller, sold all over the world, and we made money. If anyone thinks I should apologize for writing a bestselling book, I’m sorry, I’m not gonna do it,” he said.

And Sanders, who’s faced calls for the past month to release his returns, acknowledged that he had been “fortunate” even as he pushed for a more progressive tax system.

WARREN RELEASES RETURNS MOMENTS AFTER PUSHING WEALTH TAX

Sanders isn’t the only populist senator running for the White House whose tax returns indicate income in the upper six-digits.

Minutes after pushing her proposal to increase taxes on the ultra-wealthy, Sen. Elizabeth Warren released her tax returns last week. The figures show that the Massachusetts Democrat and her husband Bruce – a professor at Harvard University – paid more than $230,000 in taxes last year on just over $846,000 in adjusted income, for an effective tax rate of 27 percent. Warren made about $325,000 in book sales in addition to the $175,000 salary she receives as a senator. Her husband earned around $400,000 from Harvard.

The wealthiest Democrat among those 2020 candidates who’ve so far made their tax returns public is Sen. Kamala Harris of California.

The former Golden State attorney general and her husband – attorney Doug Emhoff – reported an adjusted income of nearly $1.9 million in 2018. They paid nearly $700,000 in taxes, for an effective rate of 37 percent. Besides her Senate income, Harris earned around $320,000 in income from writing a book that was published earlier this year. Her husband earned $1.5 million for his work as an attorney.

While Harris is reporting the most income of the candidates who’ve so far released their 2018 tax returns, former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland appears to be the wealthiest candidate in the field of Democratic presidential nomination contenders.

Last year, the then-three-term congressman was listed as the sixth wealthiest member of Congress, with an estimated net worth of $92.6 million according to rankings from Roll Call. Delaney, who grew up in a working-class family in New Jersey, became the youngest CEO in the history of the New York Stock Exchange.

According to his first quarter of fundraising report, the candidate infused $11.7 million of his own money into his campaign, making up the vast majority of the $12.1 million he brought in during the first three months of the year.

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke and his wife, meanwhile, made $366,455 – according to their 2017 returns – paying an effective tax rate of 22 percent. The candidate released 10 years of returns on Monday, but didn’t include his 2018 taxes.

“As a candidate aspiring to restore the American people’s trust in the nation’s highest office, O’Rourke will also release his 2018 tax returns as soon as possible after they are filed,” his campaign explained.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and her husband earned $338,121 last year, paying a 19 percent effective tax rate. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and her husband earned nearly $215,000 in income last year, paying an effective tax rate of 14 percent.

GILLIBRAND THE FIRST 2020 DEMOCRAT TO RELEASE TAX RETURNS

Gillibrand became the first of the 2020 Democrats to make public her returns, when she released her returns on March 27.

“Join me in calling on every presidential candidate to disclose their taxes. This is what transparency and accountability is all about,” Gillibrand said in a video at the time, as she challenged the rest of the Democratic 2020 contenders to make their returns public.

Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee also released his returns, indicating that he and his wife earned nearly $203,000 last year, paying an effective tax rate of 15 percent.

After killing the couple, officials said the 17-year-old had additional plans for violence at Neenah High School, where he was a junior.

In a statement released to FOX11, the school district said that police informed school officials Kraus “had a plan to cause harm at Neenah High School.”

“Police have indicated that there is no danger to students and staff at the high school and the school day on Monday will proceed as normal,” the statement read. “Additional counselors are available to students and there is an extra police presence as an additional precaution.”

Actress Lena Headey initially protested her shocking scene with co-star Pilou Asbaek in the Season 8 premiere of “Game of Thrones.”

[SPOILER ALERT: The remainder of this article will discuss the final premiere of “Game of Thrones.”]

While most of the action in the episode took place up north in Winterfell, things shifted south to King’s Landing where Cersei welcomed the Golden Company mercenaries (minus their elephants) brought to her by Euron Greyjoy.

Greyjoy has been doing everything in his power to get in the queen’s good graces since Season 7 in the hopes that he’ll be that much closer to power when the war ends. However, power isn’t his only motivating factor. The feared Iron Islander has made it clear that he has a burning lust for Cersei. In the episode, he uses his maniacal charm to convince her to sleep with him despite her initial protest.

“I kept saying, ‘She wouldn’t, she wouldn’t, that she would keep fighting,’” Heady told Entertainment Weekly of her moment with Asbaek’s character. “But [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] obviously know what they’re doing and were adamant Cersei would do what she had to do.”

Asbaek revealed that there were a lot of conversations behind-the-scenes about the scene and mentioned that it was almost scrapped entirely. However, it made it to the final cut once Heady started to come around to the idea.

“There’s something to play in all of it,” she said. “Cersei is such the ultimate survivor in all of this. She refuses to fall to her knees. She goes to the place where she doesn’t want to go, which makes it more powerful sad because of who she’s not with.”

The actress was referencing her character’s relationship with her brother, Jaime, who was revealed to have impregnated her before leaving for Winterfell himself. As a result, many believe Cersei didn’t yield her power to Euron, but is using him to cover up the fact that her newborn will be her brother’s.

However, the entire relationship is still shrouded in mystery as eagle-eyed fans noticed Cersei drinking wine. It’s unclear if she was lying about being pregnant in the first place, or simply doesn’t know or care about the dangers of drinking while pregnant.

Angelina Jolie took another step to end her brief marriage to Brad Pitt: She dropped his last name.

In documents obtained by The Blast, the Oscar winner petitioned to restore her last name to simply “Jolie.”

During their two-year marriage, Jolie, 43, went by “Angelina Jolie-Pitt.” The pair’s six children will retain their hyphenated last names.

THE WAY THEY WERE: ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRAD PITT

Over the weekend, it was revealed that Pitt, 55, and Jolie were granted a bifurcated judgment in their nearly two-year divorce battle. The judgment restored each of their statuses as legally single.

Pitt reportedly also filed his financial information with Jolie’s team, which may indicate a final judgment in the divorce is looming.

The couple first separated in 2016.

While Brangelina were only married for two years, the couple were together for nearly 12 years before their split, which has been somewhat acrimonious.

In June 2018, a judge ordered Jolie to give Pitt more access to their six children or risk losing primary custody.

Weeks later, the “Maleficent” star filed court documents asking a judge to finalize the divorce and force Pitt to pay child support for their six children, as well as to retroactively pay for what the actress alleged he missed in accordance with an informal agreement.

By November, however, things seemed to cool down, with Jolie’s attorney announcing that a custody agreement had been reached.

Dozens of Dems vote 95 percent of time with AOC despite Pelosi’s claim that bloc is ‘like five people’

Westlake Legal Group 501a9196-AP19102561445126 Dozens of Dems vote 95 percent of time with AOC despite Pelosi's claim that bloc is 'like five people' Lukas Mikelionis fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox news fnc/politics fnc article 9b7670c6-d938-52b2-9feb-ea6bdc256dd7

Nearly 70 Democrats have been voting in tandem with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez despite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s scoffing that the far-left Democratic wing was only “like five people.”

Pelosi downplayed the influence of the new-wave progressives, particularly Ocasio-Cortez, who pushed the party leftwards, during an interview with CBS News’ Lesley Stahl on “60 Minutes,” saying that despite the noise, the party is still largely centrist and rejects socialism “as an economic system.”

“You have these wings, AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl told Pelosi, to which the 79-year-old replied: “That’s like five people.”

PELOSI PLAYS DOWN INFLUENCE OF AOC WING OF DEMOCRATS, SAYS IT’S ‘LIKE 5 PEOPLE’

But according to Fox News’ review of voting records using ProPublica data tools, 68 lawmakers voted with Ocasio-Cortez at least 95 percent of the times since January, representing over a fourth of all seats held by Democrats.

The lawmakers voting in tandem with the New York Democrat aren’t just freshmen lawmakers, but includes a number of other high-profile Democrats.

Presidential candidates Eric Swalwell and Tusli Gabbard both voted with Ocasio-Cortez 95 percent of the times. Rep. Adam Schiff,  the House Intelligence Committee chair, also voted with her 95 percent percent of the time.

Pelosi’s claim that the progressive caucus represents about “five people” appears to be correct only when counting lawmakers who voted 97 percent of the time with the New York Democrat. Those include Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Donald Payne, D-N.J.

During the CBS interview, Pelosi’s remarks were met with pushback, pointing out that the progressive group has more than five people, to which she responded saying she’s a progressive as well.

PELOSI APPEARS TO TAKE NEW JAB AT OCASIO-CORTEZ, SAYS ‘A GLASS OF WATER’ WITH A ‘D’ COULD WIN THEIR DISTRICTS

She added that Congressional Democrats “by and large … know that we have to hold the center, that we have to go down the mainstream,” and said she “reject[s] socialism as an economic system.”

“If people have that view, that’s their view,” she said. “That is not the view of the Democratic Party.”

Pelosi continued taking a swipe at far-left Democrats during her trip to Ireland and the United Kingdom, telling an audience on Monday that both she and Ocasio-Cortez won in districts where “glass of water” with a “D” next to it could win.

“When we won this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s,” Pelosi said. “[S]he’s a wonderful member of Congress as I think all of our colleagues will attest. But those are districts that are solidly Democratic.”

To drive the point home she picked up a water glass next to her and said: “This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts.”
