As the batteries on Elon musk's Tesla Roadster ran out of power, subsequently ending the stunning live video transmission of the vehicle's journey through space, many were left wondering how to further track its travels. That's when Ben Pearson, a SpaceX fan who works in aerospace technology, decided to create a website dedicated to tracking the Roadster, and its dummy pilot codenamed Starman, as they make their way in space, TechCrunch reported.
The leader of the largest Muslim rebel group in the Philippines says Islamic State group-aligned militants planned but failed to attack another southern city after their deadly siege in Marawi was crushed last year.

Supporters of the crackdown say immigration rules must be enforced, regardless of family and community ties of those targeted. Othman denies the charge, noting that his ex-wife later retracted an initial statement she said was made under duress. Speaking at his sister's apartment in the capital, Amman, he said he'll fight to return to my Youngstown. Upon his return to the US, he was told he had to apply for a new green card, but was ultimately turned down.

The eruption of Indonesia's Mount Sinabung that shot ash 5 kilometers high also annihilated the mountain's summit. Before and after images from Indonesia's Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation show an enormous chunk missing from the peak. The volcano in North Sumatra, which has been active since 2010, erupted explosively on Monday morning. Hot ash clouds rolled down its slopes, traveling as far as 4.9 kilometers from the crater.

The US Air Force said in a statement that an F-16 jet assigned to the Misawa Air Base dumped two external fuel tanks Tuesday after developing an engine fire while flying above Lake Ogawara. The air force said the aircraft returned safely to the base, and there were no injuries to the pilot or people on the ground.
It was one of the most exhilarating days and fascinating clashes of styles ever seen in Olympic ice dancing. There was a lot of pressure, but I'm so happy with how we performed, Virtue said. Tessa and Scott were much more projecting out to the crowd, whereas Gabby and Guillaume were more insular, inward programs. Virtue and Moir won ice dancing gold at the 2010 Winter Olympics, silver in 2014 and two golds here - one in the team competition and another on Tuesday.
The Blue Raiders checked in at No 24 in Monday's latest AP Top 25 for its first ranking in program history. Now the Blue Raiders have another milestone: their first appearance in the AP Top 25 poll. The sustainability part is what you strive for, coach Kermit Davis said in an interview with The Associated Press. The Blue Raiders are led by Alabama graduate transfer Nick King, who started his career at Memphis.
Kind of sums up the American ice dance experience at the Winter Olympics. US champions Madison Hubbell and Zach Donohue made two key errors in their free dance and slid from third to fifth place. Madison Chock and Evan Bates had an even bigger slip-up: the rare ice dance fall. The Shibutanis also believe their performance could lead to more siblings and more Asian-Americans in ice dance.

The NBA's sprint to the finish begins Thursday with James riding high but starting again from back in the pack as Cleveland tries to catch Toronto and Boston in the Eastern Conference. We just added four new guys before the break, and we have a lot of work to do, James said.
Michael Moore, the polemical filmmaker who has long accused President Trump of colluding with Russians, posted videos and pictures of himself participating in a protest in Manhattan that was allegedly organized by Russians in November 2016. Prosecutors said Friday that the Russians indicted for meddling in the presidential campaign were also behind anti-Trump rallies that occured after the election.
The ice dance pairing secured a bronze medal with an electrifying performance despite what their coach Marina Zoueva described as the inherent disadvantage of being brother and sister. Yes, Zoueva said when asked if the Shibutanis had a tougher time impressing the judges than their rivals. We actually broke the wall and opened a window for anyone to be on the podium and have success in ice dance. They perform passion, but not passion to be like love passion, Zoueva added.

Shiffrin will no longer start in the downhill medal race on Wednesday, choosing to focus on the following day's Alpine combined event that was moved up in the wind-buffeted schedule. That decision, taken late Monday, cleared her mind enough to post a fast run in the third and final practice. To be honest, a little bit of relief, Shiffrin said after clocking the fifth-fastest time in Tuesday's practice.
Known as the Baby Bull, Orlando Cepeda spent the majority of his career with the Giants from 1958-1966. Baseball Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda was rushed to a Bay Area hospital late Monday, a San Francisco Giants official confirmed to The Chronicle. In 1966, the 11-time All-Star was traded to the St Louis Cardinals, where he won a World Series title and the NL MVP award in 1967.
They were on line to see Black Panther, but they might as well have been seeing Mission Impossible. A video that appears to show two California teens wearing a disguise to pay for only one Black Panther ticket this weekend went viral-but the scheme did not work. A video posted to Twitter showed people gathered around laughing at the duo, who were far taller than anyone else waiting in line.
Actor Michael Keaton is slated to give the commencement address at Ohio's Kent State University. Keaton enrolled at Kent State in 1971, intending to major in journalism and speech. He left school to pursue acting, landing appearances on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Maude and The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Keaton spoke at Kent State in 1985 and said then that he would like to return someday. The school will pay Keaton $100,000, the same it paid actress Octavia Spencer last year.
On many days, Ramon Medina has no choice but to skip work to make ends meet. You do what you can to help out, he said of his job, but added, People are discouraged. If you don't support us, you go figure out how to make ends meet. Coming to work is a kind of relief, said Andrew Kerese, who runs the successful family business with five bakeries across Caracas.
Most of the coverage of Russian meddling involves their attempt to affect the outcome of the 2016 US election, Rob Goldman, Facebook's head of advertising, tweeted on Friday. I have seen all of the Russian ads and I can say very definitively that swaying the election was *NOT* the main goal. Goldman's comments came shortly after a federal grand jury indicted 13 Russians and three Russian companies for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election, in a case brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Experts say it could have wide-reaching implications if the state succeeds, in part because 3M and other companies legally dumped the chemicals for years in and outside Minnesota. The case focuses on the company's disposal of chemicals once used to make Scotchgard fabric protector and other products. Along with Scotchgard, the chemicals were used in fire retardants, paints, nonstick cookware and other products. In 2004, trace amounts of the chemicals were found in groundwater near one of 3M's dumping sites east of St Paul.
