Lawsuits by Michael Jackson Accusers Likely to be Restored

  Lawsuits by Michael Jackson Accusers Likely to be Restored A California appeals court appeared strongly inclined Monday to give new life to lawsuits filed by two men who accuse Michael Jackson of repeatedly molesting them when they were boys. Three judges from the 2nd District Court of Appeal said in a tentative ruling that lawsuits from James Safechuck and Wade Robson against two corporate entities that Jackson owned should be reconsidered by the trial court that dismissed them in 2017.

Rochester, New York — For Charlie and Dorothy Hale of Rochester, New York, every day is like Christmas morning. Bright, shiny woodwinds and worn out old trumpets, brown cardboard packages tied up with strings — used musical instruments are their favorite things.

The instruments show up all day without intermission, and each piece is in some form of disrepair. They started buying these broken instruments a few years ago after Dorothy took a class in instrument repair.

"I always loved to take things apart, and it's about time I learned how to put something together," she said.

Dorothy, a retired chemist, and Charlie, a retired doctor, are both now in their 80s. But they're still very active in this passion to restore instruments to their former glory and then give them away by the hundreds. 

Egypt unveils 'one of a kind' discovery of hundreds of statues and mummified animals

  Egypt unveils 'one of a kind' discovery of hundreds of statues and mummified animals The discovery also included the "biggest scarab in the world" as well as mummies of at least two cubs at the Saqqara necropolis. © Hatem Maher/ABC News Egypt unveiled on Saturday what it described as "one of a kind" discovery of a cache containing hundreds of statues and mummified animals. The announcement was made after a year-long excavation near the sanctuary of the goddess Bastet or Bubasteion, which is home to the catacombs of mummified cats. The findings date back to the 26th dynasty in the seventh century BC, officials said.

Charlie and Dorothy Hale started restoring musical instruments a few years ago. Even though the Hales are in their 80's, they have given away hundreds of restored instruments to students in Rochester. Steve Hartman has their story on the road.

So far, the Hales have donated nearly 1,000 instruments to the Rochester School District through the Rochester Education Foundation.

"It's unbelievable for two humans to care so much about other people's children," said Alison Schmitt, the lead teacher for the Rochester arts department.

Alison said the impact has been huge. But when I tried to talk to the Hales about this, they seemed downright oblivious.

"There are ripples of effect I'd hope," Charlie said.

Sophomore William Delgado said it's more like tidal waves.

"Really music has and can create somebody, and it created me," he said.

Studies consistently show that music education helps kids do better in school, overall. If for no other reason, it makes them want to attend. Fortunately, the Hales are now starting to understand.

"If I could thank you every single day of my life, I would," Alison said.

As we go into the holidays, it's good to remember that there is no greater gift than simply telling someone just how important they really are.

A bizarre humming sound inside the Earth finally has an explanation .
Scientists studying our planet have a pretty good idea of what goes on up here at the surface. Understanding what's going on deep underground or in the depths of the Earth's oceans is another matter entirely. Without being able to constantly observe the processes happening miles beneath our feet, researchers often have to listen instead. Two years ago, many of the instruments used to listen in on the inner workings of the Earth began acting, well, odd. All over the world, some of the most sensitive seismic tools revealed a bizarre “hum” coming from deep within the planet.
