Felicity Huffman to be sentenced in college admissions scandal

"Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman is scheduled Friday to be the first parent sentenced in the "Varsity Blues" college admissions cheating scandal. Huffman pleaded guilty in May to mail fraud charges for participating in the scheme orchestrated by consultant Rick Singer. Huffman has admitted to paying $15,000 to have her oldest daughter's SAT exam answers corrected to artificially boost the score. Her attorneys have asked a judge to sentence the actress to probation — not prison — and community service. Federal prosecutors are recommending she serve a month in prison, 12 months of supervised release and pay a fine of $20,000.

It's Friday the 13th. Also, there's a full harvest micromoon

For the superstitious among us, beware: It's Friday the 13th, a day traditionally associated with bad luck. If that weren't enough, there also will be a full moon, which throughout history has been associated with strange or insane behavior, according to AccuWeather. Tonight's moon is a "harvest moon" — the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox, which this year is Sept. 23. There's more: On Friday, the moon will reach "apogee," the farthest point in its orbit around Earth, which will result in an unusually small full moon or "micromoon." So if you are home tonight due to fear of Friday the 13th (which is called "paraskevidekatriaphobia," by the way), you can at least look out your window and enjoy the view.

Tons of sources now say that iPhone 11 preorders are crushing it.
An insider familiar with Apple’s supply chain said in a note to clients earlier this week that iPhone 11 preorders were off to a good start, just as we noted that most iPhone 11 Pro versions were sold out, as were several of the new iPhone 11 color options. It took Apple less than three days to run out of stock of some models, offering delivery estimates of up to three weeks for some of them.
