Driving while on drugs was associated with more deaths in 2015 than driving with alcohol in one's system, a new report found. Still, some safety experts caution that drunken driving remains a bigger problem and say that "drugged driving," as the report refers to it, needs more research. Of those tested, 43% of motorists who died had drugs in their system, the report said. This number surpassed the 37% of motorists who died who tested positive for alcohol in the same year.
Lonzo Ball pulled his hamstring during UCLA's season-ending loss to Kentucky in the Sweet 16, his father LaVar Ball revealed Thursday, adding it prevented him from taking over for teammates that lacked the athleticism required to win a national championship. "Realistically you can't win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow. I told Lonzo, 'One of these games you might need to go for 30 or 40 points.' It turned out that was the one game. Then once they get to the Elite 8, they're right there."
Oil giant Exxon Mobil is urging Donald Trump to keep the United States signed up to the Paris Agreement on climate change. In a letter to the President's special assistant for international energy and the environment, a senior Exxon official described the historic international deal as an "effective framework for addressing the risks of climate change". But the letter also suggested it was worthwhile staying at the negotiating table to ensure energy markets "remain as free and competitive as possible."
Congress sent proposed legislation to President Donald Trump on Tuesday that wipes away landmark online privacy protections, the first salvo in what is likely to become a significant reworking of the rules governing Internet access in an era of Republican dominance. In a party-line vote, House Republicans freed Internet service providers such as Verizon, AT&T and Comcast of protections approved just last year that had sought to limit what companies could do with information such as customer browsing habits, app usage history, location data and Social Security numbers. The rules had also required providers to strengthen safeguards for customer data against hackers and thieves.
