Move over erupting volcano, there’s a new standard for the science fair.
A 10-year-old boy in Kentucky set out to discover through hard science one of history’s most debated questions: Is Tom Brady a cheater?
Christopher Davis was looking for ways to get his son, Ace, excited about his school’s science fair at Millcreek Elementary.
Davis knew his son was a big football buck and thought this was a good way for him and the family to get through “the tedious project.” And it looks like Ace had a good time with it.
“I was trying to prove that he’s a cheater because he deflated the football in the championship,” Ace said. “And I still think he does.”
The method Ace used was nothing short of objective. The fourth-grader tested three different footballs in four categories: throwing, catching,
accuracy and distance. He tested a five-pound ball, a seven-pound ball and a nine-pound
in each category.
Throughout his experiments, he found that it was easier to catch and throw the football that weighed five pounds compared to the two other balls.
This “tedious” assignment turned into a winning project and now the duo will be bringing their resea
rch to the next round.

When asked who Ace is rooting for that Sunday?he competition will take place in Lexington, Kentucky on Saturday Feb. 2, the day before the Super Bowl where the Patriots and Rams face off in Atlanta.
A St. Louis police officer was charged with manslaughter Friday for allegedly shooting a colleague as the two played Russian roulette, authorities said.
Officer Nathaniel Hendren, 29, shot Officer Katlyn Alix, 24, in his apartment in the city’s Carondelet neighborhood early Thursday in the presence of a third officer, police said.
Hendren was charged with involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action, police said. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.
Alix was off duty at the time of the shooting, police said. Hendren and his partner were on duty. All three were in Hendren’s apartment shortly before 1 a.m.
Hendren emptied the cylinder of the revolver and then put one cartridge back in, police said in a probable cause statement. He spun the cylinder, pointed it away and pulled the trigger, but the gun did not fire.
Alix then took the gun, pointed it at Hendren and pulled the trigger without it firing, police said.
Hendren’s partner told Hendren and Alix “that they shouldn’t be playing with guns and that they were police officers,” police said in the statement.
“He felt uncomfortable with them playing with guns and didn’t want to have any part of it and started to leave.”
Hendren took the gun back and pulled the trigger.
“As (Hendren’s partner) left the room but before leaving the apartment, he heard a shot,” police said.
Alix was struck in the chest.
Hendren and his partner used police radio to report an officer in need of aid and rushed Alix to St. Louis University Hospital. She was pronounced dead soon after arriving at the hospital.
Police said Thursday that a preliminary investigation indicated that Hendren had “mishandled” the gun. Police Commissioner John W. Hayden Jr. called it an “accidental discharge of the weapon.”
The gun was recovered at the scene, police said. They have not said whether it was a service weapon, or why Hendren and his partner were at the apartment during their shift.
Alix entered the St. Louis Police Academy in June 2016 and was commissioned as a police officer two years ago. She was assigned as a patrol officer in South St. Louis. She is survived by her husband, mother, father and sister.
Hendren had been with the department for about a year, police said. His partner, also 29, has been with the St. Police Department for nearly two years.
“Today, as much as it saddens my staff and me to file these charges, Katlyn and her family deserve accountability and justice,” St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner said.

GASTONIA, N.C. (AP) — A woman who made news for giving birth to a North Carolina county’s first baby of 2019 in a moving car is accused of running a methamphetamine trafficking operation out of that same vehicle.
The Gaston Gazette reports 32-year-old Jessica Dawn Killian was arrested outside a motel early Tuesday. Gastonia police say she had 36 grams of meth she planned to sell, using a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze.
Just three weeks prior, she was a passenger in that car, giving birth to Atom Bomb Sain as her boyfriend sped toward the hospital. The couple had already chosen the boy’s name, but Killian said he “really did come out like a bomb.”
Officials couldn’t comment on who has custody of the boy.
As someone who never really followed Beyoncé’s career in depth, and has really only became a diehard fan, the signs are there. The fact is, abuse does not always look like someone being beaten and bloody and can instead look very normal to people on the outside. Beyonce has been so dehumanized by the media and at times her fans that it is easy to forget that she is a real person and more than a cleverly marketed– if inaccessible– concept peopleprojecttheir own ideas, feelings, and frustrations on. I feel that by taking some of her music at face value, a narrative starts to arrive of a black woman who is conditioned to accept abuse, and rationalizing that abuse to the best of her ability.
