LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ryan O'Neal told a jury that an Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett that hangs in his home is one of his deepest connections to his longtime partner and that he does not believe he should have to hand it over to the actress' alma mater.
By Alwyn Scott WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In the crucial minutes before an Asiana Airlines flight crashed in San Francisco last summer, the pilots voiced concern about the plane's low speed but did nothing to correct it until just before it hit the ground. The training pilot, Lee Jeong-min, and a third pilot, Bong Dongwon, who was in a jump seat in the cockpit, spoke about the plane's speed and "sink rate," or descent, about a minute before the plane hit the ground, according to a transcript of the cockpit voice recorder released on Wednesday.
California will have an extra two months to reduce crowding in its prison system, in the latest twist in a decades-long dispute over conditions and medical care for inmates, a panel of federal judges ruled on Wednesday. The three-judge panel gave the state until mid-January to reach a negotiated plan with lawyers representing inmates over poor medical care and crowded conditions. California has been under court orders to reduce inmate numbers in its prison system since 2009, when the same panel ordered it to relieve overcrowding that has caused inadequate medical and mental-health care. California Governor Jerry Brown has repeatedly said he believes that the state has fixed its problem, but the court has ordered him to reduce the population further, and the U.S. Supreme Court has twice refused to hear Brown's appeals.
