Japan preschools using tablets to prep tots for digital age

It's drawing time at this suburban nursery school in Japan, but instead of crayons, tiny fingers are tapping on colors on iPad screens and taking selfies. Digital schooling has arrived in this nation long known for its zealous commitment to "three R's" education. Coby Preschool, in a small town northeast of Tokyo, is among nearly 400 kindergartens and nursery schools in Japan that are using smartphone software applications designed especially for preschoolers called KitS. That's only about 1 percent of this nation's kindergartens and nursery schools. But it's a start. Coby is helping lead a national initiative in "digital play."...

Texas prisons often deny dentures to inmates with no teeth

Inmates without teeth in Texas are routinely denied dentures because state prison policy says chewing isn't a medical necessity because they can eat blended food. Texas prisons' medical providers approved 71 dentures to a state inmate population of more than 149,000 in 2016, the Houston Chronicle reported. It's a sharp decline from 15 years ago, when more than 1,000 dental prosthetics were approved. California, the next-largest prison population, has given nearly six times as many dentures as Texas in the past decade, despite the Lone Star State having nearly 19,000 more inmates than the Golden State. California's prison system provided...

Home break-ins by black bears surge in Connecticut suburbs

Tom Bradley had grown accustomed to seeing black bears walk through his Connecticut neighborhood, but this month he was alarmed to find something trying to turn a doorknob to enter his house. He used his key fob to set off his car horn, to scare away whatever was in his garage. When he went outside, he saw a bear and two cubs that had been trying to get into his mudroom. "I think what is happening is the bears are learning," said Bradley, who has lived at his North Canton home since 1991. "It was sort of a step from...

Kavanaugh protests escalate, over 120 arrested on Capitol Hill

National protests against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh escalated on Monday with more than 120 people arrested on Capitol Hill, celebrities weighing in on social media, and nationwide walkouts.

The surge in opposition to Trump's pick for the high court comes one...

An Indonesian teenager has been rescued after 49 days lost at sea on a floating fish trap. Aldi Novel Adilang, 19, was living on and operating the fish trap, known locally as a rompong, when the rope anchoring the vessel in place broke on July 14 and strong winds blew him roughly 1,200 miles away into Japanese waters, according to the Associated Press. He floated adrift for nearly two months on the makeshift vessel, which is not equipped with steering like a boat.

Dozens of distressed migrants in limbo after Panama withdraws rescue ship's registration at sea

Alaska man charged with murder in 10-year-old girl's slaying

An Alaska man was charged Monday in the death of a 10-year-old girl whose remains were found more than a week after she was reported missing. State prosecutors charged Peter Wilson of Kotzebue with first-degree murder, kidnapping, sexual abuse of a minor and tampering with evidence Monday in connection with the death of Ashley Johnson-Barr. An autopsy revealed signs of strangulation and sexual abuse, and DNA evidence also linked him to the crime, according to prosecutors. Wilson, 41, pleaded not guilty Friday to federal charges of making false statements as FBI agents and others searched for Ashley in Kotzebue, a...

Judge restores protections for grizzly bears, blocking hunts

A U.S. judge ordered federal protections restored for grizzly bears in the Northern Rocky Mountains on Monday, a move that blocks the first grizzly hunts planned in the Lower 48 states in almost three decades. Wyoming and Idaho had been on the cusp of allowing hunters to kill up to 23 bears this fall. U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen had twice delayed the hunts, and the latest order blocking them was due to expire later this week. The hunts would have been the first in U.S. outside Alaska since 1991. Christensen wrote in his ruling that the case was "not...

Box office top 20: 'The House With a Clock' is no. 1

A trio of wide-releases sputtered while the gothic family fantasy "The House With a Clock in Its Walls," starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett, ticked its way to a weekend-best $26.6 million in ticket sales, according to final box-office figures Monday. The Universal Pictures release, produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, exceeded industry expectations on a weekend that was otherwise littered with disappointments. Amazon Studio's "Life Itself," from "This Is Us" creator Dan Fogelman, bombed with a mere $2.1 million in 2,609 theaters. Sam Levinson's "Assassination Nation," which Neon made the top purchase at January's Sundance Film Festival, debuted with...
