DNC Wikileaks Scandal Continues: Three More Top Officials Resign
Three top Democratic National Committee (DNC) officials have stepped down in the wake of the email scandal that has already forced the ouster of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
CEO Amy Dacey, communications director Luis Miranda, and chief financial officer (CFO) Brad Marshall all resigned on Tuesday after facing scrutiny for emails that critics say showed favoritism toward Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the presidential primaries. Marshall was particularly criticized for suggesting questioning Sanders’ religion to sow dislike of him among the public.

Terrifying scenes as 40 people are injured in beer festival stampede after someone shouts ‘ISIS’ for joke
More than 40 people were injured in the stampede at the Beer Fest in Kosovo’s capital of Pristina after apparently a gun was fired and many wrongly thought it was a terror attack.
After hearing the name of the terror group being called in the crowd, people started to run away as fast as they could from the square in which the festival was held.

Hot climates more likely to spawn violent behavior, theory suggests
A team of researchers recently published a study that proposes a new model on how violent human behavior may be impacted by a warmer climate.
The paper, published in the journal, “Behavioral and Brain Sciences” by faculty at The Ohio State University and Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, introduced a model of Climate, Aggression and Self-control in Humans (CLASH) that seeks to understand “differences within and between countries in aggression and violence in terms of differences in climate.”
“We believe our model can help explain the impact of climate on rates of violence in different parts of the world,” Paul van Lange, lead author of the study, said in a statement through Ohio State.

‘Escape hatch’ built for Berkeley admin building in wake of repeated sit-ins
The door was constructed late last month outside a short hallway between Dirks’ conference room and his office in California Hall at a cost of $9,000, the Daily Californian campus newspaper reports.
Some students at the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement say they are angry over its installation, arguing that between the back door and the fence recently built around the chancellor’s campus residence that “it’s clear that administrators on this campus operate in a near-constant state of fear of its students,” the Daily Cal noted in a staff editorial.
Obama commutes sentences for 214 federal prisoners
President Obama on Wednesday cut short the sentences of 214 federal inmates, including 67 life sentences, in what the White House called the largest batch of commutations on a single day in more than a century.
Almost all the prisoners were serving time for nonviolent crimes related to cocaine, methamphetamine or other drugs, although a few were charged with firearms violations related to their drug activities. Almost all are men, though they represent a diverse cross-section of America geographically.
