Scientist says he found definitive proof that God exists
Did he say which one?  
And wouldn't Egon Musk's video-game explanation fit his facts just as well?

Appeals court rules no constitutional right to carry concealed guns
Good for the court.  The constitution says I have a right to bear arms.  It does not say I have a right to sneakily hide my bearing of arms from my fellow citizens of the United States of America.

Bernie Sanders Gives A Speech Divorced From Reality
Well, Bernie has always been a bit divorced from reality. - it is part of his charm. He favorsmaintained government projects that could not be paid for by confiscating ALL of the wealth of the 1%.

 Fox News Poll: Majority thinks Clinton is lying about emails
The majority of voters know that Clinton and Trump are lying whenever their lips move.

New rendition of classic opera ‘Porgy and Bess’ offers a ‘greater truth’
Good for them. Classic stories need re-telling in each generation to point up the current zeitgeist. It may seem that this would be easier than creating one's own work, but that is not necessarily the case. Re-telling a classic means agonising over throwing the baby out with the bathwater or damaging the soul of the piece by tacking on modern lessons.
For example, the Bourne Identity remake was technically superior to the original in every way, but making Bourne a real assassin tears the moral heart out of the story. Perhaps intentional: saying that being moral does not matter to us as much today as it once did, but it means the re-make is actually a different story, merely plagiarising, and capitalising on the success of, the earlier version.
I hope that is not the case with this production and wish them every success.
