Miley Cyrus spotted kissing singer Cody Simpson after Kaitlynn Carter, Liam Hemsworth splits

Miley Cyrus isn’t letting back-to-back breakups keep her from potentially finding love again.

The singer, 26, was spotted Thursday kissing fellow musician Cody Simpson, 22, at a store in Los Angeles, according to video obtained by TMZ.

The two were first linked back in late 2014, but in 2015 Simpson told GQ Australia that they were “just mates.”

“Miley is one of my best friends and she helps with some of that transitional stuff — trying to escape your childhood. She’s super open-minded and I’m working on becoming more like that,” he said.

The Australian star previously dated model Gigi Hadid.

As the news of her divorce broke, Cyrus was spotted on an Italian vacation with reality TV star Kaitlynn Carter, who in turn had just split from her husband Brody Jenner. They were rumored to have been in an open marriage.

After Carter and Jenner ended their relationship, it was revealed that they were never legally married — despite having had a wedding ceremony.

Trump administration Medicare official: Sanders and Warren’s ‘socialist experiments’ won’t work for seniors

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma said Friday that proposals from 2020 presidential candidates like Senators Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., would “eviscerate” Medicare.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with host Bill Hemmer, Verma said President Trump’s executive order – which would expand the program’s private insurance option – is “all about demonstrating his vision to protect and secure the Medicare program.”

In the executive order, the Trump administration claims his Medicare plan will:

  • Provide more plan choices and time with providers
  • Streamline approval of therapies
  • Reform link payments with value
  • Eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse
  • Reduce regulation

‘MEDICARE-FOR-ALL’ SPONSOR SAYS PLAN WOULD GUT 1 MILLION PRIVATE INSURANCE JOBS

“He’s just building on the tremendous success that we’ve already had with the program,” she told Hemmer. “President Trump’s Medicare program is putting money back into the pockets of seniors. We’ve lowered out-of-pocket costs for drugs and for doctors’ visits.”

She added that Medicare Advantage rates were announced at historic lows, citing lower Part D premiums and decreases in drug pricing.

Medicare itself remains popular, but 2020 Democratic presidential candidates’ calls to enact a single-payer, government-run system for everyone are far more controversial. Speaking to a retirement community in Florida on Thursday, the president said Democrats want to “raid Medicare to fund the idea of socialism.”

“All of the Democrats’ plans would totally devastate our health care plans,” he exclaimed.

Sanders’ “single-payer” approach would cover people of any age and would incorporate the Medicare program. Private health insurance, including the Medicare Advantage option used by about one-third of seniors, would no longer have a role.

Sanders, who underwent a heart procedure this week, has argued that “Medicare-for-all” would offer seniors broader benefits and lower costs.

“In all of these versions, whether it’s ‘Medicare-for-all’ or the public option … what they’re talking about is a government takeover of our private health care system stripping 180 million Americans from private coverage and putting them into a government-run program,” Verma explained.

“What we’ve seen from other countries that have tried these socialist experiments is that that leads to reductions in care, reduced access, long wait times, and rationing of care,” she said.

FELLOW 2020 CANDIDATE CALLS BERNIE’S ‘MEDICARE-FOR-ALL’ PLAN A ‘LOSING BATTLE’ THAT WILL SET COUNTRY BACK 10 YEARS 

“These types of options that we’re hearing from people, would eviscerate the Medicare program. and, it would put our seniors in a situation where they’re waiting in line for their care,” Verma stated.

“President Trump has a very different vision,” she concluded. “He wants to strengthen and protect the Medicare program, make it better for seniors.”

Opioid doctor’s 40-year sentence is stark reminder of widespread overdose epidemic

A doctor in Virginia was sentenced this week to 40 years in prison for illegally prescribing opioids, a practice that saw him dole out more than 500,000 doses of opioids between 2015 and 2017 to patients from Virginia, Kentucky, West Virginia, Ohio and Tennessee, resulting in at least one death.

Dr. Joel Smithers was convicted in May of over 800 counts of illegally distributing opioids, including oxycodone and oxymorphone, and while the father of five maintains that he was acting as a caring physician who was deceived by patients, the painkillers are part of a class of drugs being blamed for a stark increase in opioid deaths in the U.S.

OHIO CORONER SAYS OPIOID CRISIS IS ‘NOT GOING AWAY’ AFTER 10 DEATHS IN HER COUNTY IN JUST OVER A DAY

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of the 702,568 overdose deaths during 1999-2017, 399,230 involved opioids. In 2017, 47,600 of the 70,237 overdose deaths involved opioids, an increase of 12 percent from the year prior. In 2016, 66.4 percent of the 63,632 overdose deaths involved a prescription opioid, with the epidemic touching all age groups, races and ethnicities.

And while the hardest-hit state, West Virginia, was one where Smithers was convicted of distributing opioids, it was more than one doctor and more than one drug that spurred the crisis. Illicit opioids including fentanyl and other synthetic drugs are also to blame for the spike.

AS DOCTORS TAPER OR END OPIOID PRESCRIPTIONS, MANY PATIENTS DRIVEN TO DESPAIR, SUICIDE 

Between 2016 and 2017, the CDC found an increase of almost 47 percent in overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids other than methadone.

Opioids, which range in potency, are often used to treat chronic and acute pain, and when used appropriately can be a solution for patients. But the drugs also come with serious risks, including addiction, or the potential for misuse, overdose and possibly even death.

The increases in overdose deaths have been marked across all age groups. (CDC data )

Big pharma has played a large role in the overdose epidemic as well, with Purdue Pharma recently agreeing on a $10 billion tentative settlement with 24 states over the crisis. In Oklahoma, a judge ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay out $572 million over marketing and sales practices of powerful opioids.

EX-CEO OF INDIANA DRUG COMPANY GETS 3 YEARS FOR DEFRAUDING FDA, TAMPERING WITH DRUGS

While the CDC has reported that the prescribing rate in the U.S. has been declining since 2012, it’s still triple the amount than it was in 1999. In 2017, the agency reported almost 58 opioid prescriptions written for every 100 Americans, and the average number of days per prescription averaging around 18.

In an effort to combat overprescribing practices, in 2016 the CDC released guidelines that saw many physicians taper down or end chronic pain patients’ prescriptions, leaving them in pain or turning toward illicit drugs or even suicide to find relief.

“We have a terrible problem. We have people committing suicide for no other reason than being forced to stop opioids, pain medication, for chronic pain,” Thomas Kline, a North Carolina family doctor and former Harvard Medical School program administrator, previously told Fox News.

“It’s mass hysteria, a witch hunt. It’s one of the worst health care crises in our history,” said Kline. “There are 5 to 7 million people being tortured on purpose.”

PERDUE PHARMA REACHES TENTATIVE SETTLEMENT IN OPIOID LAWSUIT, BUT SOME STATES NOT ON BOARD 

The move provided neither a solution for patients nor the nation’s overdose data, which saw a drop in painkiller prescriptions but overdose deaths continuing to soar. In June 2019, the CDC was forced to issue updated guidelines urging physicians not to cut patients off abruptly.

“CDC commends efforts by healthcare providers and systems, quality improvement organizations, payers, and states to improve opioid prescribing and reduce opioid misuse and overdose,” the guidelines read. “However, some policies and practices that cite the Guideline are inconsistent with, and go beyond its recommendations.”

Elsewhere, the tech industry has entered the ring in a bid to help combat the staggering overdose numbers in the U.S. In September, which is recognized as “National Recovery Month,” Google featured a promotion on its homepage linking out to its new “Recover Together” website, which features recovery stories and resources. It also lets users find more than 33,000 locations providing recovery services, and a Naloxone Locator, which is where people can find the overdose reversal drug without a prescription.

DOCTORS CAUGHT BETWEEN STRUGGLING OPIOID PATIENTS AND CRACKDOWN ON PRESCRIPTIONS

The FDA has also called for more access to naloxone, which is currently approved by the agency in three different forms but requires a prescription. In most states, a pharmacist can dispense naloxone under a standing order, and many have also given pharmacists direct authority to prescribe and sell it to consumers.

However, the agency said misunderstandings or misinterpretations of the order are still causing roadblocks for many in search of naloxone, preventing the life-saving drug from getting to the people who need it. The FDA said it was working with federal state and local officials as well as health care providers to clear up any miscommunications and increase the availability of the drug in all forms.

“Ultimately, the goal of increasing access to all forms of naloxone is to make this potentially life-saving treatment available to individuals at risk of an overdose – such as those with a history of overdose or substance use disorder – and those in the community most likely to observe an overdose,” the agency said in a news release.

1840 shipwreck reveals trove of gold coins that could be worth millions

A steamship that sank in 1840 after colliding with another ship off the coast of South Carolina contains a trove of rare gold coins, according to the dive team salvaging the wreck.

The SS North Carolina sank on July 25, 1840, after colliding with its sister ship, the Governor Dudley.

In a statement, Blue Water Ventures International and Endurance Exploration Group explained that the dive team and the recovery vessel arrived at the site in late September. “Gold coins, marble, dinnerware, and brass spikes, used in the ship’s construction, were among the first shipwreck items to be found,” they said.

MYSTERIOUS 19TH-CENTURY SHIPWRECK DISCOVERED BY ACCIDENT IN THE GULF OF MEXICO

The collision did not result in any loss of life, as SS North Carolina’s passengers were safely transferred to the Governor Dudley. “However, passenger baggage and ship’s cargo were lost in the sinking,” said the companies involved in the salvage project. “It has been estimated that the hard currency lost on the SS North Carolina would be worth many millions of dollars in today’s value.”

“It is believed that some gold coins from the newly commissioned US Mint in Dahlonega in 1838 would have been in circulation prior to the sinking of the SS North Carolina in 1840, and if found, these coins would be extremely valuable in today’s collectors’ market,” the companies added in the statement.

The Charlotte Observer reports that the salvage effort is taking placing 20 miles off the coast of South Carolina. “After working the first half of the 2019 dive season on several wreck sites, some famous, some not, with the goal of future admiralty claims, it’s great to be back in recovery mode on the SS North Carolina, especially when you see gold coins the very first day on site!” said Blue Water Ventures International President Keith Webb in the statement.

Weather permitting, the recovery effort will run during October and November.

Other shipwrecks discoveries have been grabbing attention recently. A mysterious shipwreck at the bottom of Newport Harbor is believed to be the famous HMS Endeavour, which Capt. James Cook sailed on when he discovered Australia.

In June, the wreck of what appears to be a British ship destroyed during the siege of Yorktown in 1781 was discovered in Virginia.

Earlier this year, a mysterious 19th-century shipwreck was discovered by researchers testing underwater drone equipment in the Gulf of Mexico. A team from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration aboard the exploration vessel Okeanos Explorer was testing the equipment on May 16 when the wreck was spotted.

Florida woman drives car into tree after telling four kids to remove seat belts: ‘The devil can’t hurt you’

A Florida woman, who accused her husband of placing a “hex” on her, was arrested Wednesday for attempted murder after police say she told her four young children to remove their seat belts before she intentionally crashed her car into a tree — allegedly in a twisted bid to save them from the “devil.”

Calicia Williams, 36, was charged with four counts of attempted murder after investigators say she drove her white Pontiac minivan at a “high rate of speed” onto a grass median and directly into tree, without braking.

Once on the scene, police found four young children, ages 7 to 13, inside the car wearing no seatbelts. Williams was said to be “making spontaneous utterances” and appeared to be “extremely agitated” when being interviewed by authorities.

According to a police affidavit, she stated that her “husband put a hex on her and caused her to crash.” The responding officer said she kept “rambling on about spells and voodoo.”

Witnesses also told investigators that Williams advised the children to take off their seatbelts before stretching out her hands and saying, “The devil can’t hurt you, he only hurts bad people. You have the light of Jesus in you and only Jesus can cure us.”

Investigators on the scene observed evidence that indicated that Williams did not attempt to brake before crashing into the tree. It also appeared that she directly targeted the passenger side of the vehicle on impact.

Williams also had burns to her neck that indicated she was wearing a seat belt — unlike her children.

The children and suspect were taken to the hospital but their condition was unknown. Williams will be held without bond following treatment.

Justin Bieber, PETA in cat fight: ‘PETA can suck it’

“Baby, baby, baby, nooooooo,” said PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange about Justin Bieber spending $35,000 on two part-exotic kittens, Sushi and Tuna.

The singer, 25, reportedly spent $20,000 on one kitten (Sushi) and $15,000 on the other (Tuna).

Sushi and Tuna are part-domestic cat and part-African Serval and were purchased from the Illinois-based breeder Select Exotics, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Justin Bieber could inspire his fans around the world to save a life by adopting a cat from a local animal shelter — rather than fueling the dangerous demand for hybrid cats, contributing to the animal overpopulation crisis, and proving that when it comes to helping animals, his stance so far is ‘I don’t care,'” said Lange.

Andy McCarthy calls out Dems’ ‘Kabuki theater’: There are no subpoenas and no impeachment inquiry

House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump is all but “Kabuki theater at this point,’ former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andy McCarthy said Friday.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with host Bill Hemmer, McCarthy argued that the way the media is reporting on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s probe is “simply inaccurate about what’s going on.”

“For example, this whole idea that there is an impeachment inquiry: there’s not. The idea that there are subpoenas: there aren’t. And, I think a lot of people are consuming it as if it were true on face value and I really think if I were the White House what I would be worried about is breaking through that,” McCarthy told Hemmer.

(AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

In an op-ed in The Hill, McCarthy wrote that congressional Democrats, to the contrary, are instead conducting the 2020 political campaign: “Democrats are mulishly determined to ram through an article of impeachment or two, regardless of whether the State Department and other agencies cooperate in the farce. Their base wants the scarlet-letter ‘I’ (impeachment) attached to Trump. The party hopes to rally the troops for the 2020 campaign against Trump…If Democrats truly thought they had a case, they wouldn’t be in such a rush—they’d want everyone to have time to study it. But they don’t have a case, so instead they’re giving us a show.”

House Democrats launched a formal impeachment inquiry into the president after a whistleblower complaint suggested the president, during a July phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart, tried to induce officials there to investigate Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and their business dealings in that country.

“The question here is, was there a corrupt quid pro quo?” the Fox News contributor asked.

The letter will say that the White House won’t comply with the Democrats’ investigation because Pelosi hasn’t codified the probe with a formal vote on the House floor. The letter will mirror the tone of a letter House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., sent to the speaker on Thursday.

“I think it’s the right thing for him to do,” Andy McCarthy said. “The Constitution reposes the power to impeach solely in the House. Not in the Speaker of the House, the House.”

McCarthy said it would actually benefit the House if it wanted to go into court and try to enforce any information demands: “The first thing a court’s going to want to know is, ‘Has the House voted to have an impeachment inquiry?’ And, a lot hinges on that, including how much expansion a court would give a president’s claim of executive privilege and privilege over matters that are in the president’s duties under Article II.

“If they really have grounds to seek the president’s impeachment, they not only should have a vote because it’s in their interests when they go to court to have a vote, they should be proud to have a vote,” McCarthy added.

He concluded: “If [House Democrats] really think they have grounds to remove the President of the United States from power, then the House should speak as one as an institution and vote that way.”

Upcoming NBC political drama enlists CNN reporter Dana Bash for expertise: report

Was NBC News political director Chuck Todd not available?

NBC’s upcoming political drama set in Washington D.C. has enlisted CNN political correspondent Dana Bash to serve as a consulting producer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show, which will be called “The Hill,” billed as a “high-stakes character drama that lives at the intersection of media and Capitol Hill, where everything is transacted: information, love, sex, fame and power,” according to THR.

“It will focus on the gifted, flawed and fascinating people who call that world home,” THR’s Rick Porter wrote.

While it may seem odd that an NBC program would require a CNN political consultant, when NBC News employs dozens of political reporters itself, the show is actually being created by Sony Pictures TV.

NBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“Hawaii Five-0” and “Scorpion” writer Paul Grellong will work on the project, along with Bash and a group of other TV industry veterans including a former “Larry King Live” executive producer, according to the report.

Bash is CNN’s chief political correspondent, covering all things Trump along with the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate for the liberal network. She plays a major role in CNN’s election coverage and was a White House correspondent during the George W. Bush’s administration.

Bash also appeared in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and Netflix political drama “House of Cards.”

Washington state teen’s cold case murder cracked after nearly three decades

The cold case rape and murder of a popular Washington state teenager has finally been solved after nearly three decades, authorities said.

Sara Yarborough, 16, was supposed to board a bus with her Federal Way High School drill team in December 1991. She never did.

Teens found her body after they saw a man emerge from bushes behind the high school. She had been strangled with her own nylons, according to reports.

CALIFORNIA COLD-CASE VICTIM FOUND IN 1996 NOW HAS A ‘FACE’ THANKS TO RECONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY

Authorities now say Patrick Nicholas, 55, was linked to the crime after cops tested a discarded cigarette butt outside a dry-cleaning business in Kent on Sunday, the Seattle Times reported. DNA from the butt matched evidence recovered from Yarborough’s body.

A forensic genealogist identified Nicholas as a potential suspect after uploading the crime scene DNA to a genealogy website to create a family tree.

“Few things are more satisfying in law enforcement than being able to tell a victim’s family that a suspect has been caught,” King County Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht said Thursday in announcing Nicholas’ arrest for Sara’s murder, according to Q13 Fox. “Last night, deputies were able to tell Sarah Yarborough’s family that.”

“They had never given up,” said Laura Yarborough, Sara’s mother, according to the station. “Even when I had given up, they didn’t. I guess it’s a warning, if you do something heinous here, they’ll come to get you.”

She said she wondered if her daughter’s killer was still alive.

“But the detectives were extremely dogged and kept going even when I was ready to throw in the towel,” she said.

The case went cold even with witnesses, 4,000 tips and the killer’s DNA profile.

Last year a Virginia lab used DNA from the crime scene to create composite sketches of Sara’s killer as an older person.

According to the Times, Nicholas was released from prison in an attempted rape case four years before Sara’s murder and was arrested in a 1994 child molestation case that resulted in an assault conviction.

A prosecutor said in court papers that for the past several years Nicholas had been living in a dilapidated building on a large piece of property with few community ties, according to the paper.

The prosecutor was quoted as saying that Nicholas’ crime was “one of opportunity and extreme violence.”
