Early in Michael Hyland's career, when he worked with electric power crews in New Hampshire, word got back to him that a customer was upset after experiencing a series of outages over a short period of time. "As anyone would be," said Hyland, now senior vice president of engineering services with the American Public Power Association (APPA).
WASHINGTON - How are your kids doing? It isn't the question itself that bothers Katie Porter. The freshman Democratic congresswoman from California, a single mom of three children, is perfectly aware that inquiring about another person's family is just polite small talk. But there's something about the way some people ask her, the subtle emphasis on that last word - "how are your kids doing?" - that makes her bristle. "As if they're suffering," Porter said. Her colleagues surrounding her in the stately room at the Library of Congress nodded knowingly.
A man accused of throwing a 5-year-old boy from a balcony at the Mall of America on Friday, April 12, had been "looking for someone to kill," authorities say.

Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a new contract that will make the five-time Pro Bowl quarterback the NFL's highest-paid player, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported and the Seattle Times confirmed early Tuesday morning, April 16. Wilson tweeted out a short video at 12:44 a.m. Pacific time, saying "hey Seattle, we got a deal" while in bed next to wife Ciara. Wilson had given the Seahawks a deadline of midnight Monday to work out a new deal; otherwise, he would not have any further contract negotiations during the upcoming season.
PARIS - With its iconic cathedral scorched but still standing, France on Tuesday launched an investigation into what triggered the Notre Dame inferno and how a fire that had probably started by accident could gut the symbol of a nation. As the smoke cleared from the sky Tuesday, it was almost possible to look head-on at the church - to see its carved statues and two rectangular bell towers - and imagine that all was intact. Much of the valuable art and relics had been saved.
By Saturday afternoon, Chad Loder had seen enough. The cyber-security expert noticed that President Donald Trump's Friday tweet - a video juxtaposing Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., with footage of the twin towers falling on 9/11 - had generated a surge of activity from a sector of Twitter users he argues aren't always taken seriously: the ones who incite violence.
Marijuana possession led to nearly 6 percent of all arrests in the United States in 2017, FBI data shows, underscoring the level of policing dedicated to containing behavior that's legal in 10 states and the nation's capital.
Katherine Bouman had a secret: An algorithm she'd developed had stitched together a picture of a black hole. She told nobody except her colleagues. Until last week. That's when Event Horizon Telescope team, of which Bouman is a member, unveiled the first image of a black hole. Bouman, 29, a postdoctoral researcher at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, had been working on such an algorithm for almost six years, since she was a graduate student at MIT.
WASHINGTON - For the third week in a row, U.S. health officials have added dozens of new reports to the year's list of confirmed measles cases, bringing the total to 555 - already the highest number in the past five years. If the outbreaks aren't brought under control, public health experts worry that the cases in 2019 will hit a record nearly two decades after measles's "elimination" in the United States. The number of people sickened by the highly contagious, occasionally deadly disease increased by 90 during the second week of April, with 20 states now having reported cases in 2019.
