The superpowers of Paul Rudd

Monday 13:37 GMT

He can even be a "superhero," as Tracy Smith shows us in our Sunday Profile: . At 49 actor Paul Rudd might not seem like the superhero type.

To Paul Rudd himself, it's clearly more than just another photo-op: Before the game, he and his pals spent a few hours with the kids at Mercy Hospital – and being Ant-Man really meant something. "We truly do pinch ourselves and get chills when we get to talk about it, [and] actually get to be a part of this, for all of us," said Mandi.

Schumer admits there's no guarantee GOP will keep its word on DACA vote

Monday 22:46 GMT

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer acknowledged Tuesday night that he has no guarantee that Senate Republicans will allow a vote on immigration in the next two weeks, an agreement he'd touted as the reason Democrats voted to end the government shutdown.

Fernando Alonso wins Le Mans 24 with Toyota

Monday 12:42 GMT

Fernando Alonso won Le Mans 24 Hours at the first attempt as he and team-mates Sebastian Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima finally ended Toyota's long drought.

Alonso joined Toyota's World Endurance Championship (WEC) programme this season with the aim of winning Le Mans, and is dovetailing it with his programme with McLaren in Formula 1. Toyota are the only team competing with a hybrid car in the top LMP1 class, and the privateer-run non-hybrids are not fast enough to challenge them.

Surfers Against Sewage ride the wave of the 'Harry and Meghan effect'

Monday 13:38 GMT

Unlike sewage, where there are a finite number of water companies and easily visible pipes, the plastic comes from everywhere.

In Iowa, Republicans and Democrats fight for elusive independent voters, whoever they are

Monday 22:46 GMT

Beyond that, little is known about these voters, said Christopher Larimer, an associate professor of political science at the University of Northern Iowa who has studied the district’s voters.

Finkenauer has what may be a more difficult task: to appeal to Trump supporters, including no-party voters and even some Republicans, without alienating Democrats who are angered by Trump’s presidency. “Folks are waking up and realizing, ‘Wait, we’ve got to make a change here,’ ” said Finkenauer, 29, who was elected to the Iowa statehouse the same year that Blum was elected to Congress.

Justice Dept. inspector general, FBI director face questions from Congress on report

Today 06:08 GMT

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher A. Wray faced lawmakers Monday to defend a report on the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails, which rebuked the conduct of former director James B. Comey and senior investigators but found no evidence that bias affected the probe’s conclusion.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) asserted that the report showed Clinton “got the kid glove treatment,” and if it were not for the inspector general, FBI officials would “still be plotting about how to use their official position to stop” Trump from being elected president.

Tony Perkins: Christians can influence the world without being influenced

Monday 11:51 GMT

The political left would desire nothing more than Christians to voluntarily remove themselves from positions of influence in this world and go into spiritual ghettos where they can easily be isolated, ignored and robbed of their influence.

Our separation or distinction comes from the presence of unyielding devotion to the unchanging truth of God’s Word.

'Do You Believe in the Tooth Fairy': Sen. John Kennedy Presses Inspector General for Finding 'No Bias'

Today 06:08 GMT

Pressed Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz on his report's finding that bias did not affect prosecutorial decisionmaking in regard to the Clinton email scandal -- in a round of questioning that made unexpected references to Jimmy Hoffa and the tooth fairy.

The new golden age of television

Monday 09:56 GMT

Our present, many have noted, is a new golden age of television, defined by the rise of a range of sophisticated, creative, and powerful serial shows.

Above all, new television responds to an omnipresent loss of normative authority, of a robust failure of humans to feel at home in their world: to trust their governments, their leaders, their role models, their traditions, and ultimately, even their senses.
