Tulsi Gabbard Is Suing Hillary Clinton for Defamation The Hawaii congresswoman's lawsuit claims she has suffered damages estimated in excess of $50 million. The suit alleges former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied about Gabbard's ties to Russia during a 2019 podcast interview. Clinton said she felt one female candidate was being "groomed" to be a third-party candidate. Clinton would go on to label this person as a "favorite" of the Russians. When later asked if Clinton was referring to Gabbard, Clinton's spokesman, Nick Merrill, replied, "If the nesting doll fits." While it's unclear if the lawsuit stands a chance of succeeding, the news puts Gabbard back into the headlines.

Researchers analyzed U.S. fatalities from injuries over a 37-year period until 2017. The number of deaths were then associated with big temperature swings each month. Because of the temperature swings, authors say an extra 2,135 people could die annually in the U.S. Besides drownings and falls, the study includes human assaults related to climate change. Lead author Robbie Parks, via The Verge Researchers add that higher temperatures are linked to increased aggravation in people. They also point out that hotter climates lead people to consume more alcohol. This may relate to transportation accidents, which the study says make up many recorded deaths when the temperatures are not normal.
