    Many of the world’s largest Internet companies, like Google and Facebook, rely heavily on advertising to finance their online empires. But that business model is increasingly coming under threat, with one in five smartphone users, or almost 420 million people worldwide, blocking advertising when browsing the web on cellphones. That represents a 90 percent annual increase, according to a new report from PageFair, a start-up that helps to recoup some of this lost advertising revenue, and Priori Data, a company that tracks smartphone applications. The use of ad-blocking software has divided the online world. Supporters say it allows people to...

    An innocent 2-year-old Michigan girl who was shot in the head as men argued over spilled juice has died, a hospital spokesperson said. Little Makanzee Oldham spent days on life support after she was hit by a stray bullet Wednesday while seated in a car with her father and several other people in Detroit. The problems started when 32-year-old Antoine Smelley dumped juice over a woman’s head just as she was getting ready to leave a Fairmount Drive home go to prom, prosecutors said. Smelley began waving a gun and threatening the woman — and soon Cleveland Smelley, 30, and...

Investigators found a military-style backpack Monday at the Conoco gas station that caught fire after being hit by a halo of gunfire Sunday. The backpack contained bullets, a birth certificate and several other items. Police are working to confirm who the bag belongs to and...

    When fans ran out to grab Marvel Comics’ “Captain America: Steve Rogers #1” on its release Wednesday, they were not expecting this. Captain America discloses in the issue that he is in fact a secret operative of the evil, formerly Nazi organization, Hydra. The dramatic twist happens right on the last page, as Captain America prepares to throw his supposed ally, Jack Flag, off an airplane, presumably to his death, and exclaims, “Hail Hydra!” Even Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most recently in “Captain America: Civil Wars,” was shocked. Writer Nick Spencer assured readers...

    Southern women scattered spring flowers on graves of both northern Union and southern Confederate soldiers of the Civil War in which over a half-million died. Many places claimed to have held the original Memorial Day, such as:Warrenton, Virginia;Columbus, Georgia; Savannah, Georgia; Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; Boalsburg, Pennsylvania;Waterloo, New York. One such place was Charleston, South Carolina, where a mass grave was uncovered of 257 Union soldiers who had died in a prison camp. On May 1, 1865, former slaves organized a parade, led by 2,800 singing Black children, and reburied the soldiers with honor in gratitude for their freedom.

    The NYPD is eagerly expanding the use of ShotSpotter technology to detect gunfire around the city, but one institution isn’t on board: Columbia University. Police sources say the Ivy League school declined a request from the NYPD to install the unobtrusive sensors on campus, without giving a reason. “Columbia is an ideal location because of how it’s situated,” a police source told the Daily News. “We have no idea why they said no. Do they not want to be seen as cooperating with law enforcement?” A Columbia spokesperson said the university is “continuing to review this proposal.” The ShotSpotter sensors...

Trainings begin Saturday for doctors who want to learn to insert four matchstick-size rods under the skin. They contain the drug buprenorphine, which staves off opioid cravings. The implant, called Probuphine, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration on Thursday, and is expected to be available to patients by the end of June. "This is just the starting point for us to continue to fight for the cause of patients with opioid addiction," said Behshad Sheldon, CEO of Braeburn Pharmaceuticals, which manufactures Probuphine.
