This Australian’s fishy tale was true: A 9-foot shark jumped into his boat

- CANBERRA, Australia — A 73-year-old Australian fisherman said Monday that he caught a far bigger fish than he hoped for when a 9-foot great white shark leapt into his boat, knocking him off his feet. Terry Selwood was left with a badly bruised and bleeding right arm where the airborne shark struck him with a pectoral fin as it landed on him on the deck of the 15-foot power boat Saturday off Evans Head, 450 miles north of Sydney

President Trump on his son-in-law: ‘Jared is doing a great job for the country’

- WASHINGTON — The most successful deal of Jared Kushner’s short and consequential career in real estate and politics involves one highly leveraged acquisition: a pair of adjoining offices a few penny-loafer paces from his father-in-law’s desk in the White House. Over the past week, Kushner, who at age 36 occupies an ill-defined role somewhere between princeling and President Trump’s shadow chief of staff, has seen his foothold on that invaluable real estate shrink amid revelations he is under scrutiny in a federal investigation into whether there was collusion with Russian officials during the presidential campaign

Ask Angela: When getting-to-know-you questions at church feel intrusive

- Dear Angela. , I’ve been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for two years and I’ve recently moved into a new ward. My husband is not a member, so he typically does not attend church with me and my three young children. Before meetings, after meetings, even during meetings — I get a lot of questions from other members about my family, my job, my husband, where we’re from, am I a stay-at-home mom? How do I afford a nanny? When did we get married? Will we have more children? What am I going to do to get my husband baptized? Etc

Beyond The Forecast: 2017 Summer Weather Outlook

- BOSTON (CBS) — While most people wonder about the upcoming weather for every winter season, almost as many are curious how the summers will shape up too. The Memorial Day Weekend is considered the unofficial kickoff of the summer season even though summer does not begin until the solstice at 12:24am on June 21. What can you expect this summer? Will it be a scorcher like last summer, when the temperature maxed out at 90 or higher on 12 days in July and seven days in August in Boston? I have been projecting these 90-degree days over the past few summers and, surprisingly, I have been pleased with the results from the way below average 2014 to the near average 2015 to the whopping above average last year

    Too soon to start a fire sale? The Detroit Tigers look finished

    CHICAGO – There is nothing worse in baseball than a team that looks finished before the summer arrives. And the Detroit Tigers look finished. Sure, the Tigers technically aren't done yet – they’ve only played 50 games. They’ve had injuries, a grueling schedule, and … stop it. They simply aren’t good. Lately, they’ve been worse than that. The question is: what should management do about it? Right now, they aren’t going to do much

    WSU chief, union at odds on tougher prof reviews

    Every year, Wayne State University faculty members put together a package to showcase their work, make their case for a raise and face mentoring if their performance falls below expectations. But the process, spelled out in the WSU faculty’s contract, falls short of what other universities do, according to Wayne State University President M. Roy Wilson. That’s why Wilson is making the case for a controversial process in higher education known as post-tenure review — and he has vowed to get it into the next faculty contract in the wake of WSU’s attempt to fire five tenured medical school faculty the university says have not performed adequately

Coffee growers at Manushi-Sinde cooperative society in Kilimanjaro Region have received another boost for their industry after the United States African Development Foundation (USADF) granted them Sh200 million.

Speaking during the signing of a two-year agreement, a representative of the US aid agency, Mr Gilliard Nkini, urged the cooperative society members to ensure that the funds are spent for the purpose
