Authorities on Long Island are looking to catch a couple they say were living the high life with a stolen credit card number.
Police in New York's Suffolk County released dive video of the man and woman Friday. The video shows them plunging from an airplane over Shirley with instructors.
The duo allegedly used a stolen credit card number to pay for two dives and a photo-video package at Skydive Long Island in Shirley back in June.
Pope Francis said in an interview this week that the common phrasing of one line in "The Lord's Prayer" — “lead us not into temptation” — was not quite right.
"That is not a good translation," the pope said in a Wednesday interview with an Italian television station.
He suggested it might be better to say: "Do not let us fall into temptation," because God does not lead people into temptation — Satan does.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke spent more than $53,000 on three helicopter trips this summer, including one that allowed him to return to Washington in time for a horseback ride with Vice President Mike Pence, newly released records show.
Records released by the Interior Department in response to a Freedom of Information Act request show Zinke spent more than $39,000 on a July helicopter tour above two national monuments in Nevada. Zinke was considering whether to recommend downsizing the two sites, which total more than 1 million acres in southeastern Nevada.

A woman who accused GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual assault is now saying that she added notes to the yearbook message she touted as proof that the two knew each other in the 70s, NBC News reported.
Beverly Young Nelson, appearing on "Good Morning America" Friday, was asked if she had made notes under Moore's signature on the yearbook page that she said Moore inscribed. She answered yes.
Her lawyer, Gloria Allred, later added in a news conference that Nelson's notes included the date and location below Moore's signature, which a handwriting expert said matches Moore's based on public record. Allred said Nelson added the annotation as a reminder of the details of the encounter.

Net neutrality is a simple concept but a dense and often technical issue that has been argued over for years in tech and telecom circles. Now everyday folks are talking about it.
That's because the Federal Communications Commission has scheduled a vote next week to gut Obama-era rules meant to stop broadband companies such as Comcast, AT&T and Verizon from exercising more control over what people watch and see on the internet. The protests aren't likely to stop the agency's vote on Thursday, but activists hope the outcry will push Congress to intervene and will show support for stricter regulation down the road.
Net neutrality has been a hot button before, thanks to assists from Silicon Valley and TV host John Oliver speaking out about what they see as threats to the internet. More Hollywood celebrities have been joining the cry against the agency's direction.
In an unprecedented move, North Carolina's state child welfare agency will participate in reviewing every new allegation of abuse and neglect involving a controversial church that has been the focus of an Associated Press investigation exposing years of physical and emotional mistreatment of congregants, including children.
Under North Carolina's child welfare system, county agencies are responsible for investigating abuse allegations. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services provides oversight and training, but generally does not get involved in a county agency's daily operations.

Deputy national security adviser Dina Powell is leaving the Trump administration early in 2018, the White House announced Friday, CNBC reported.
Powell served under National Security Advisor Gen. H.R. McMaster. Within the West Wing, Powell was considered a close ally of President Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
"Dina Powell has been a key, trusted advisor in this administration," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. "She has always planned to serve one year before returning home to New York, where she will continue to support the President's agenda and work on Middle East policy. She will serve in the administration until early next year."

An email that was sent to then-candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr. in Sept. 2016 pointed them to hacked WikiLeaks documents that had already been made public, according to a copy of the email provided to NBC News by Trump Jr.'s lawyer.
The email, first reported by CNN, offered a decryption key and a website address to access the documents, the officials said.
But the email is dated Sept 14, not Sept 4, as CNN had reported. On Sept 13, the day before the email, WikiLeaks had tweeted links to what the group said was 678.4 megabytes of DNC documents.
Trump Jr.'s attorney, Alan S. Futerfas, said in a statement to NBC News that the email "arrived after published media reports disclosed 12 hours earlier that hacked documents had been posted. The suggestion that this information was not public is false."

A former Arizona police officer was acquitted Thursday of a murder charge in the 2016 fatal shooting of an unarmed man outside his hotel room as officers were responding to a call that someone there was pointing a gun out a window.
The verdict cleared Philip Mitchell Brailsford, 27, of criminal liability in the 2016 death of Daniel Shaver of Granbury, Texas.
The shooting occurred in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa after officers ordered Shaver to exit his hotel room, lay face-down in a hallway and refrain from making sudden movements — or he risked being shot.

Minnesota Sen. Al Franken's departure from the Senate solves one problem for Democrats, demonstrating their will to push out one of their own when sexual harassment allegations pile up. Now they must worry about keeping one more vulnerable seat when they already had their hands full in next year's election.
Franken said Thursday he would resign, just a day after new allegations brought the number of women alleging he had groped or tried to kiss them to at least eight.
In a sometimes emotional speech delivered on the Senate floor, Franken said some of the accusations were false, but acknowledged he couldn't continue.

A New York woman suffered from blurred vision and permanent dark spots after staring directly into the solar eclipse in August, according to a case study released Thursday.
The woman, identified by CNN as 26-year-old Nia Payne of Staten Island, walked into the New York Ear and Eye Infirmary of Mount Sinai with symptoms of vision that was blurred, distorted and could not perceive color well. She also reported seeing a central black spot in her left eye, according to the study published in JAMA Ophthalmology.
She told doctors that she first glanced at the sun during the eclipse for 6 seconds then she borrowed a pair of what she thought were eclipse glasses and looked up at the sun for another 15 to 20 seconds. She said she viewed the eclipse with both eyes.
Snowfall blanketed parts of the Deep South on Friday, delighting schoolchildren with an unexpected holiday but also reviving panicky memories for many adults of past storms that trapped commuters on interstates for hours.

Hundreds of elite thoroughbred racehorses sprinted away from flames Thursday as one of California's major wildfires tore through a training center in San Diego County.
Not all made it.
The Lilac Fire had burned 4,100 acres west of southbound Interstate 15 and south of State Route 76 by 9 p.m. Thursday. Approximately 5,000 structures were being threatened by the fire, which was at zero percent containment.
Among those impacted by the fire were animals, kept in ranches and other properties in the area, including about eight barns at the San Luis Rey Downs training center in Bonsall, where nearly 500 racehorses were stabled.

Republican Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona is resigning after revealing that he discussed surrogacy with two female staffers.
The eight-term lawmaker, a staunch conservative and fierce opponent of abortion, said in a statement that he never physically intimidated, coerced or attempted to have any sexual contact with any member of his congressional staff.
Instead, he says, the dispute resulted from a discussion of surrogacy. Franks and his wife, who have struggled with infertility, have 3-year-old twins who were conceived through surrogacy.
