    President Donald Trump speaks at a campaign rally for Rep. Marsha Blackburn in Chattanooga, Tennessee on November 4, 2018.

    President Donald Trump praised the new barbed wire fencing being installed by U.S. troops along the U.S.-Mexico border at a campaign rally in Montana on Saturday, the New York Post reported.

    “I noticed all that beautiful barbed wire going up today,” the president said, drawing some excitement from the crowd. “Barbed wire, used properly, can be a beautiful sight.”

    According to the Defense Department, the soldiers worked with the U.S. Customs and Border patrol officers to lay about 1,000 feet of barbed wire fencing along the Texas side of the Rio Grande river. The “makeshift barrier” was installed underneath the McAllen-Hidalgo International Bridge, which crosses into Mexico. The bridge is located about 250 miles south of San Antonio in the small town of Hidalgo.

    Photo shows a newborn baby's feet.

    A mother has given birth to one of the biggest babies ever recorded at a hospital in western Sydney.

    Baby “Chunky” Parker James Bell weighed 5.755 kilograms when he was born on Thursday at Blacktown Hospital.

    What makes his birth more interesting is that his mother delivered a natural birth and without any pain relief.

    Doctors at Blacktown Hospital told the parents, 28-year-old Nikki and 30-year-old Michael, that they could not recall a bigger baby arriving at the hospital.

    In a Facebook post, the Blacktown Midwifery Group described Parker’s birth as a new record.

    “This gorgeous chunky boy was born on Thursday to one of our MGP Mums, Nikki. He weighed in at a record breaking 5.755kg (12lb 6oz for the old school) and was a natural birth with no complications,” the post reads. “Welcome to the world Parker, you’ll be the talk of Blacktown Maternity for a long time to come.”

    Madeline Sayoc, the mother of 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, penned a letter to ABC News in which she said that the actions that have thrust him into the national spotlight do not reflect how he was brought up.

His mother explained that he has been mentally ill “for a long time.”

    Madeline Sayoc’s attorney delivered the letter to ABC News. She said that she was in surgery when the news about her son hit the airwaves. She learned about what he had done when she awoke following that surgery. She said that she hasn’t spoken to him for over four years and described herself as “deeply hurt, sad, shocked, and confused” about his actions, adding that, “this is not how I raised him or my children.” She also addressed his struggles with mental illness.

    A San Diego jury has ordered the author of the bestselling pH Miracle books to pay a large sum to a cancer patient.

    According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, naturopathic practitioner Robert Oldham Young was ordered to pay $105 million to Dawn Kali, a mother-of-four who said that Young falsely promised to cure her breast cancer.

    The 66-year-old Young has written several books, which include the bestselling The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health, which was first published in 2002. The book became so popular it has been translated into several languages.

    Young’s books are about holistic healing and an alkalarian lifestyle. His works and treatments were based on the idea that acidity in the body is the cause of diseases and that an alkaline diet is the answer to these physical woes.

    Halloween is behind us, November is upon us, and the holidays are officially here. If you are waiting until the day after Thanksgiving to start your Christmas shopping, you will likely be too late for some of the hottest items this year. That’s why you should already be making your list and checking it twice to find out if Amazon will be able to offer it cheaper and faster.

    To help facilitate the upcoming buying frenzy, Amazon has dropped its requirement of a minimum purchase for free shipping. Those shipping fees can add up and contribute greatly to your overall credit card burden. Free shipping is a gift to the giver.

    Amazon is not doing this in a vacuum. The Verge makes it clear this is a competitive move.

    Helicopter crash wedding in Texas

    Two young Texas students faced a tragic and untimely death when the helicopter that whisked them away from their wedding crashed into the side of a hill outside of Uvalde.

    Bailee Ackerman and Will Byler, who were seniors at Sam Houston State University, are thought to have died in the early hours of Sunday around an hour and a half after taking off from Byler’s family ranch, where the ceremony was held. Guests were seen cheering and waving light ropes as the aircraft lifted off with the happy couple inside, according to the Daily Mail, although it is not yet known if the newlyweds were being taken on a tour in the helicopter or heading to another location. Their pilot also didn’t survive the crash, which happened just a mile away from the ranch.

    Friend and wedding guest Eric Smith wrote on Facebook, “The pilot, Jerry, was also on board. There were no survivors.”

    Pete Davidson

    Republican Congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw has said that Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson does not owe him an apology after making a joke about his war-caused disability live on the show this weekend.

    Crenshaw, who lost his eye because of an IED blast in Helmand province, Afghanistan, in 2012, told TMZ that he would rather people not engage in “this culture where we demand apologies every time someone misspeaks,” referring to Davidson’s insensitive bit about his eye patch.

    “I think it would be very healthy for our nation to go in that direction. We don’t need to be really outraged, I don’t need to demand apologies from them [the SNL crew],” the GOP candidate, who’s running for an open seat in Texas’ second congressional district, said.

    “They can do whatever they want, they’re feeling the heat from around the country right now,” he added.

    Crenshaw had, however, some advice for the 24-year-old funnyman and comedians in general.

    Police Line Cordon

    An 11-year-old fatally shot his grandmother, Yvonne Woodard, before turning the gun on himself on Saturday, November 3. According to KCRA, the boy has not yet been identified in reports.

    Yvonne Woodard, 65, and her husband, Doyle Herbert, lived with their grandson in Litchfield Park. The couple had full custody of the 11-year-old boy, per Eyewitness News 3. Herbert told the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office of the events that led to the fatal shooting costing the lives of both his wife and his grandson.

    The grandfather said that they had asked the grandson to clean his room throughout the day, but he had refused to comply. He was reportedly being stubborn about it.

    Woodard and Herbert then sat down on their couch in the living room and watched television. It is alleged that the grandson then came up behind his grandmother and shot her in the back of the head. The gun he used belongs to his grandfather.

    Wall of bat decals

    Every year there is a slew of reportedly offensive Halloween costumes that come out of the woodworks, whether these be conceivably racially insensitive, just outright shocking, or culturally inappropriate. One such unnecessary costume came from 14 staff members at a school in Idaho, who banded together to dress as Mexicans and the wall that U.S. President Donald Trump keeps promising.

    Per a previous report by the Inquisitr, members of the public made sure their outrage was heard when photos of the costume, worn to the elementary school on Halloween, were posted to social media. As the Washington Post reports, preliminary action has now been taken against those staff members while the investigation continues.

    While Josh Middleton, the superintendent of Middleton Heights Elementary School, has issued a formal public apology, the 14 staff members have been placed on administrative leave for the time being.

    jury selection begins for el chapo

    Jury selection began Monday for the trial of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, a process that both the prosecution and defense admit is going to be time-consuming, tedious and difficult.

    As CNN reports, potential jurors summoned to a New York City courtroom Monday were first asked to fill out a lengthy questionnaire, asking them such questions such as whether or not they have heard of the famed Mexican drug lord. In a perfect world, a criminal defendant would be tried by an impartial jury, not tainted by media coverage of the defendant’s suspected crimes. In practice, when it comes to one of the most notorious drug kingpins in history, that’s going to be all but impossible.

    Who Is “El Chapo”?

    A group of young children trick or treating on Halloween arrive at a home to get candy.

    A woman in Maitland, Florida was arrested after letting her 6-year-old son trick-or-treat alone last week, the Orlando Sentinel reported. He was found by a man and woman late Halloween night “lost and dehydrated,” police said.

    According to an arrest report, Jessica Anne King, 38, told police she was sick, which is why she let her son go out alone on Halloween night. King was arrested on a charge of child neglect and booked into the Orange County Jail. She has since been released after posting bail.

    The young boy was found around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night dressed as an astronaut and “wandering alone” alone about half a mile from his home on Nicoma Trail, the arrest report said. He knew the address to his house but did not know how to get there.

    The "Fearless Girl" statue in New York City during a snow storm on March 14, 2017.

    New York City’s “Fearless Girl” statue wore a bulletproof vest over the weekend, transforming into “Fearful Girl,” the Huffington Post reported.

    The bronze statue, located in Manhattan’s financial district, became a powerful protest against gun violence as she sported the vest, which read “#FEARFULGIRL.” The demonstration was sponsored by Change the Ref, a gun control advocacy group founded by Manuel and Patricia Oliver, whose son Joaquin “Guac” Oliver tragically died in February in the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

    The Olivers stood next to the statue after putting the vest on it early Friday morning, surrounded by tourists and people making their commute to work. According to Newsweek, the vest remained on the statue for about an hour before police arrived at the scene, whom Oliver said were very supportive along with the rest of the crowd.

    Migrants making their way through Central America board a truck in Guatemala City, Guatemala en route to the Mexican border on October 18, 2018.

    After almost three weeks and hundreds of miles of walking, the first group of Central American migrants arrived in Mexico City on Sunday evening, USA Today reported.

    Out of over 5,000 travelers, about 2,000 arrived over the weekend to Mexico’s capital. The rest were expected to arrive throughout the day on Monday, many of whom were staying about 190 miles away in the city of Cordoba.

    According to USAToday, the migrants have received a “warm” welcome, and the local government has turned a sports complex into a shelter for the travelers, who have “endured sore feet, sickness and downpours, and survived on guile and the generosity of Mexicans of modest means.”

    Researchers from Florida Atlantic University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science published a study in Health Information Science and Systems that shows how machine learning and advanced analytics could lead to Medicare fraud detection. The breakthrough could lead to $19-65 billion annual savings of Medicare funds lost to fraud.

    The researchers tested six different machine learners on both balanced and imbalanced data sets using Medicare Part B data, ultimately finding the RF100 random forest algorithm to be the most effective in detecting potential fraudulent claims, and that imbalanced data sets provided the most accurate results.

    TALLAHASSEE, FL - NOVEMBER 02: Tallahassee Police officers are stationed outside the HotYoga Studio after a gunman killed one person and injured several others inside on November 2, 2018 in Tallahassee, Florida. (Photo by Mark Wallheiser/Getty Images)

    “Thanks to him, I was able to rush out the door,” says Daniela Garcia Albalat of Josh Quick, the man who faced down a gunman at a Florida yoga studio with only a broom and a vacuum, according to the BBC. They were the only weapons of self-defense available to Quick, who bravely rushed the gunman during a terrifying attack last week.

    “I jumped up as quickly as I could,” said Josh Quick. After the handgun seemed to jam, Quick wrestled with the gunman.

    “He saved my life,” said Albalat of Quick.

    “I picked up the only thing nearby to hit him with, which was a vacuum cleaner, and I hit him over the head,” said Quick.

    The gunman, Scott Beierle, then “pistol-whipped” Quick, who fell to the floor. Quick then got back to his feet and ran to the only other serviceable weapon in the room: a broomstick.

    “Again, he pushed me off, but some people were able to run out of the room.”

    10-year-old girl arrested in Wisconsin for killing an infant

    A 10-year-old girl from Chippewa Falls in Wisconsin was handcuffed and taken to court on Monday morning on the charges of killing a 6-month-old in a daycare center.

    According to a report by the Star Tribune, the girl was brought to Chippewa County Circuit Court along with her parents for a bond hearing. The minor girl was ordered to be held on $50,000 cash bond. As the report detailed, she kept sobbing throughout her 10-minute hearing.

    For legal reasons, the girl is not identified and will likely be referred to juvenile court. Per Wisconsin’s law, however, all cases of first-degree homicide must be initially brought in adult court if the person charged with the crime is 10 years of age or older.
