    Three Russian soldiers blew themselves up in a grenade explosion after getting drunk during a resupply run in Russia's southwestern Voronezh region, according to local media reports. The three servicemen died in a house in the city of Rossosh, and a further two were injured, according to the Telegram channel of independent Russian-language news outlet Astra, and the VChK-OGPU Telegram channel, which has close ties to Russian security forces. The news comes nearly 19 months into Russian President Vladimir Putin's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

    Is it possible to run a daily television program without succumbing to workplace toxicity? In the last few years, we’ve seen exposés from the sets of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, and Dr. Phil, featuring accusations of bullying leadership styles and deteriorating mental health among staffers. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon can now be added to that number, as more than a dozen current and former staff members from that show have spoken to Rolling Stone about a culture of fear and anxiety behind the scenes that largely stems from Jimmy Fallon’s own “erratic” behavior.

    An 18-month-old Florida girl “baked to death” after police said her parents left her alone in a car all night in 105-degree heat after returning home from a Fourth of July party where they drank alcohol and smoked marijuana.

    Attorneys representing the accused drunk driver who struck and killed newlywed bride Samantha Hutchinson on the day of her South Carolina nuptials are asking the public “not to rush to judgment.” Jamie Lee Komoroski, 25, last week retained two high-powered attorneys, Nathan S. Williams and Christopher S. Gramiccioni, to defend her in her criminal case. Williams is a former federal prosecutor best known for trying mass shooter Dylann Roof and convincing a jury to give him the death penalty. Gramiccioni spent nearly a decade serving as a prosecutor in Monmouth County, New Jersey, before entering private practice in 2021.
