Damir Yusupov can take his place alongside Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who landed his United Airlines plane in New York's Hudson River in 2009 after a similar bird strike cut out its engines. The bird strike happened a minute after takeoff, about 40 seconds earlier in the flight than Sullenberger had been when he ran into a flock of geese as his plane was climbing from LaGuardia Airport. The 23 who were hurt were taken to a nearby hospital.

The Kremlin broke its silence Tuesday on the apparent explosion of a nuclear-powered cruise missile during a test, saying that accidents "happen" but that Russia remained "far ahead" in the development of advanced weaponry. The Russian military on Tuesday told residents of a village near a navy testing range to evacuate, but cancelled the order hours later, adding to the uncertainty and confusion fueled by a missile explosion last week in the far north of Russia. read more

Miriam Rivera, who came to fame as the transgender star of the controversial Sky One reality show "There's Something About Miriam", died in Hermosillo, Mexico on 5 February this year. After she was found dead by hanging at her Mexico home, her husband claimed that he was informed an autopsy could not take place as a cremation had already been performed, while later he was contacted by an unknown male over the phone who told him, "Don't come back to Mexico or we'll kill you too."

Actress and activist Rosanna Arquette said Wednesday that she feels shame and disgust for being white. "I'm sorry I was born white and privileged," Ms. Arquette tweeted to her nearly 90,000 followers. "It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame."

If Democrats think that the voting public won't remember the promises they made during this primary, they have a rude awakening coming. They seem determined to take the embarrassing title "party of stupid" away from their opponents. Liberated for two years from the compromises demanded of a governing party, Democrats have emerged from the wilderness enamored with a variety of big policy proposals that are deeply unpopular and completely unpractical.


You seemed to have missed the part of article where it points out the Democrats trying to be "bold" are failing just as much as the ones described as "tepid". At the very least, Democrats would need to articulate a message that's strong enough to convince the public before moving ahead on impeachment, even if they know conviction is unlikely. They clearly missed that boat when the Mueller report and testimony fizzled out.


Pelosi is clearly looking at numbers outside the hardcore base and believes it will backfire immensely.

"Republicans ... are not afraid of polls or public backlash -- they just do it and damn the consequences."

That's nonsense. Republicans definitely care about polls, but they care more about controlling the Senate and Executive Branch, which gives them the Supreme Court, than they do about the House of Representatives. So from their point of view, holding their noses and going along with Trump's garbage was a winning strategy in both 2016 and 2018.

"But only then will voters have a clear choice."

If voters aren't already convinced there's a clear choice, half-assed impeachment proceedings aren't going to change their minds.
