NASA Astronaut Accused of Hacking Ex-Wife’s Bank Account From Space

A NASA astronaut is accused of hacking her estranged spouse’s bank account from space. Astronaut Anne McClain allegedly accessed the bank account of Summer Worden, while aboard the International Space Station this year, according to NBC affiliate KPRC in Houston. The two women are in a custody battle over a 6-year-old son who was conceived through in vitro fertilization and who was carried by a surrogate, Worden told KPRC.  The court battle has included allegations that Worden assaulted McClain. The allegations were eventually dropped, and Worden says the two have never had a physical altercation, KPRC reported. Then, earlier this year McClain allegedly accessed Worden’s bank account while the astronaut was in space. Worden said her bank “did give evidence to my attorneys that she did access my bank accounts,” according to KPRC. An attorney representing McClain, Rusty Hardin, could not immediately be reached for comment. Photo Credit: Dmitri Lovetsky/AP

Unity Among World Leaders Tested in G-7 Summit in France

The Latest on the Group of Seven summit (all times local): 7:40 p.m. A French diplomat says President Emmanuel Macron tried to reduce the pressure exerted by President Donald Trump over a new digital services tax the country is imposing on internet giants. The official, who spoke anonymously in accordance with the French presidency’s customary practices, said Macron told Trump the tax is not an anti-American policy. During a 2-hour working lunch with Trump, Macron stressed the need for every country to be able to tax digital activities. Trump repeatedly vowed to retaliate against France for the new digital tax the country is imposing on big tech companies that sell online advertising by placing tariffs on French wine imports to the U.S. The French diplomat said Macron told Trump there was no link to be made between the digital tax and the wine tariffs and tried to convince him there was no point in opening a trade war on that issue. —By Sylvie Corbet ___ 7:30 p.m. France’s Basque country is on the menu for the G-7 summit informal dinner of leaders.

High School Athletes Fight Off Woman Who Assaulted Them, Tried to Push 1 Over Bridge in Ladera Ranch Area: Sheriff

A woman was arrested after she assaulted two high school boys and tried to push one over a bridge in the Ladera Ranch area Friday, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said. Stephanie Redondo, 23, is seen in a photo provided by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department on Aug. 24, 2019. The boys, part of Capistrano Valley High School’s cross-country team, were running on Crown Valley Parkway between O’Neill Drive and Jardines at about 4 p.m. when the woman assaulted them, authorities said. Deputies responded to the area after multiple callers reported someone trying to jump off the Crown Valley Parkway bridge. When they arrived, they found that the woman had grabbed one of the boys and tried to push him off the bridge safety railing, Orange County officials said. The boys managed to fight her off and were not seriously injured, according to the Sheriff’s Department. “Thankfully the juvenile victims and witnesses reacted swiftly, and no one sustained serious physical injury from this incident,” the Sheriff’s Department said on Twitter. “This is an important reminder of how quickly a situation can escalate and that personal…

49ers’ Shanahan explains hiring of controversial coach

Kyle Shanahan has 23 official assistant coaches on his 49ers staff, and, as it turns out, an offensive line consultant getting a second chance after a troubled past. That consultant is Chris Foerster, a long-time NFL offensive line coach who resigned two years ago from the Miami Dolphins when a viral video showed him snorting a white substance. “He is still in a consulting role because I understand the seriousness of this matter,” Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area’s Jennifer Lee Chan in Kansas City, ahead of tonight’s exhibition. FILE – In this Aug. 16, 2016, file photo, Miami Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster watches as players do drills during practice at NFL football training camp in Davie, Fla.

Live updates: 49ers vs. Chiefs in preseason, Saturday night

Join us for in-game insights and analysis Saturday when the 49ers face the Chiefs in Kansas City at 5 p.m. in Week 3 of the preseason schedule. While the outcome of preseason games are meaningless, it would be significant if 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo could bounce back from a rough start a week ago, not to mention how satisfying it would be to play well where he tore his ACL last September. Garoppolo, who went just 1-for-6 for zero yards and an ugly interception in 11 snaps against the Broncos last week, is scheduled to play at least the first half against the Chiefs (1-1). In addition, the 49ers are also eagerly anticipating free-agent linebacker Kwon Alexander’s debut in red & gold. Alexander, who also suffered a torn ACL nearly a year ago while playing for Tampa Bay, will get a chance to chase defending NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes, who also had a rough game last week in a 17-7 loss to the Steelers, will play at least a couple of series with Kansas City’s first-team offense. Mahomes went just 2-of-5 for 11 yards…

Carl Love: These 4 siblings attend Vista Murrieta High and are strong supporters of the Bronco way

For some reason, the Beers family has not painted their house blue and gold. Chloe, Ethan, Luke and Brady don’t wake up to the tune of “Boomer Sooner.” And the family doesn’t have routine tardy sweeps or a bronco for a pet. The four all attend Vista Murrieta High School this year, the place with those colors, song and mascot. Chloe is a senior, Ethan a junior, Luke a sophomore and Brady a freshman, one at each grade level. The family logs a lot of miles in transporting so many kids on the 15-mile round trip to and from Vista. They need three vehicles to make the estimated 25 to 30 trips a week. That means they’re logging 400 to 500 miles a week now that the school of 3,600 students is up and running. It helps mom, Michelle, and dad, James, that Chloe is also now driving. In typical teenage sarcastic humor, Chloe says the vehicle she gets to drive is “like a thousand years old.” There could be a lot of teenage sarcasm going on at the Beers house. Yet they’re also great…

Instapoetry isn’t poetry, but it’s booming business

By Timothy Green Instagram poetry might be the most hotly debated topic in literature today. For the past few years, citing a boom in book sales, outlets like The Atlantic, the Guardian, and Publishers Weekly have regularly proclaimed the social media platform to be the savior of poetry. “Traditional” poets have either professed a sanguine agreement or fired back with scathing reviews and parody accounts. Whatever the response, Instapoetry is something to be reckoned with. As I write this, seven of the top 20 bestselling books of poetry on Amazon were written by Instagram poets, and none of the other authors — Homer, Mary Oliver, Maya Angelou — are contemporary in the literal sense. They’re all dead. One of the top 20, the poet and musician David Berman, died just last week, and just this week became a bestselling poet, I assume, for the first time. The message to poets seems clear. If you want to be commercially successful, there are two options: be dead or be on Instagram. Needless to say, that isn’t a message poets want to hear. With an open mind, however,…
