    Paedophile victim: How I fell into Matthew Falder's trap

    One of the 46 victims of "warped and sadistic" paedophile Matthew Falder has spoken of her "shame" at how 'Liz' - the name Falder used to masquerade on a marketplace website - snared her online. 'Liz' emailed at first after a few days saying that she had work, and asked if she could get a personal email because she didn't like the way the website's interface was, which wasn't unusual. The first messages made you feel like you were in control, 'Liz' was always saying "it's up to you" and "I understand if you don't want to".

    Theresa May criticises university vice chancellors who have say in setting their own pay

    Theresa May has hit out at university vice chancellors who take part in setting their own pay.

    Minnesota's $5B case over 3M chemicals heads to trial

    Minnesota officials will soon try to convince a jury that manufacturer 3M Co. should pay the state $5 billion to help clean up environmental damage that the state alleges was caused by pollutants the company dumped for decades. Experts say it could have wide-reaching implications if the state succeeds, in part because 3M and other companies legally dumped the chemicals for years in and outside Minnesota. The case focuses on the company's disposal of chemicals once used to make Scotchgard fabric protector and other products.

Early in the protest, D.C. high schoolers participated in a "lie-in"—laying down on the ground motionless for three minutes at a time—to make "a statement on the atrocities that have been committed due to the lack of gun control," according to the Teens for Gun Reform Facebook group that publicized the protest. In a Facebook Live video, a reporter for BuzzFeed News estimated that 50 to 75 students were part of that demonstration.
