Exclusive: How elite U.S. college students brought COVID-19 home from campusThe message was lost on many students. Before leaving campus and returning to their homes and families throughout the United States and abroad, more than 100 Vanderbilt students attended parties, ignoring the school's explicit instructions not to do so. One photo of a March 11 party, posted on Instagram and seen by Reuters, shows a student in a makeshift hazmat suit, a black mask and green bowler hat with shamrocks, as a large group of students party in the background.

Doomsday Mom Lori Vallow Tries to Get Judge Booted From Case

Doomsday Mom Lori Vallow Tries to Get Judge Booted From CaseDoomsday mom Lori Vallow is trying to get an Idaho judge booted from her case while she sits in jail, unable to raise enough money to bail out.It’s not clear why Vallow—who has refused to cooperate with the investigation into her missing children—wants Madison County Magistrate Judge Faren Eddins disqualified; her lawyer’s filing didn’t give a reason.She appeared before Eddins last week, requesting that her $ 5 million bail be lowered to $ 10,000. Eddins lowered it to $ 1 million, but Vallow hasn’t been able to secure a bond.Bizarre Email Is Latest Clue in Saga of Doomsday Couple With Missing KidsA number of bondsmen have been in touch with Vallow, but none have been willing to take her on.“It’s not about the money. I told her I don’t want to write the bond. I’d rather just have this go away if she would provide where the kids are located,” Danielle Kingston told East Idaho News this week.“If she could provide that assurance and proof of life, this goes away. But she has rights—including her right to bail.”Vallow’s 17-year-old daughter Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old son J.J. have not been seen since September, and when police started making inquiries, she and husband Chad Daybell picked up and moved to Hawaii.She was ordered to return to Idaho and produce the kids. When she didn’t, she was arrested on charges of child desertion, contempt of court, and promoting a criminal act and extradited from Hawaii.In addition to hunting for the kids—who police have said are in danger—authorities are also investigating the death of Vallow’s last husband, Charles, who was shot dead by her brother, Alex Cox, who has also since died under mysterious circumstances.They are also looking into the death of Daybell’s last wife, Tammy, whose body has been exhumed for an autopsy. Daybell, the author of novels about near-death experiences and the apocalypse, and Vallow, who is also obsessed with doomsday scenarios, got married weeks after Tammy’s death from unknown causes.Vallow was supposed to make another court appearance next week, but both her attorney and the prosecutor have asked to postpone it until May because they are gathering more evidence.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Sanders Differentiates Socialism from ‘Authoritarian Communism’ When Confronted by Russian Immigrant

Sanders Differentiates Socialism from ‘Authoritarian Communism’ When Confronted by Russian ImmigrantSenator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) on Monday differentiated Democratic socialism from "authoritarian communism" at a CNN town hall at which he fielded a question from a Russian immigrant who accused him of being "eager to implement" many Soviet-style policies."My father's family left Soviet Russia in 1979 fleeing from some of the very same socialist policies that you seem eager to implement in this country," audience member Samantha Frenkel-Popell said. "So my question is, how do you rectify your notion of democratic socialism with the failures of socialism in nearly every country that has tried it?""Is it your assumption that I supported or believe in authoritarian communism that existed in the Soviet Union?  I don't and never have. And I opposed it," Sanders responded."What do I mean when I talk about democratic socialism?  It certainly is not the authoritarian communism that existed in the Soviet Union and in other communist countries," the senator said. "What democratic socialism means to me is we expand Medicare, we provide educational opportunity to all Americans, we rebuild our crumbling infrastructure."Sanders has drawn criticism for comments praising the communist regimes of the Soviet Union and Cuba, as well as the left-wing Nicaraguan strongman Daniel Ortega."People there seemed reasonably happy and content," Sanders said of the Soviet Union after his honeymoon in Yaroslavl, Russia. "I didn't notice much deprivation."Documents discovered by the New York Times revealed that Soviet officials had attempted to use Sanders's initiative to form a sister-city relationship between Yaroslavl and Burlington, Vt., where Sanders was mayor, to advance Soviet propaganda."We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know?” Sanders said of the communist island nation in a February interview on 60 Minutes. "When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?"The comments drew sharp rebukes from Florida politicians in both parties, whose constituents include a large population of Cuban refugees and exiles.

U.S. opposes releasing a dying Bernard Madoff from prison early

U.S. opposes releasing a dying Bernard Madoff from prison earlyThe U.S. government opposed Bernard Madoff’s request to be freed from prison even if he is close to death from kidney failure, saying he has never accepted responsibility for his massive Ponzi scheme or shown compassion for victims. In a Wednesday night court filing, prosecutors said denying the 81-year-old Madoff’s request would uphold victims’ and public faith in the justice system. “Madoff’s crimes were extraordinarily evil,” prosecutors said.
