Lake County State’s Attorney Michael Nerheim speaks to the media outside of the Lake County Courthouse on Sept. 25, 2020 in Waukegan.

An Antioch police investigation found that the Smith & Wesson .223 caliber rifle “was purchased, stored and used in Wisconsin” and turned up no evidence the 17-year-old “physically possessed” the weapon in Illinois, according to a news release from the office of Lake County State’s Attorney Mike Nerheim. The news release does not reveal who is believed to have bought or held the gun before the shooting.

The Antioch teen, however, still faces a gun charge in Wisconsin, as Kenosha County prosecutors

Colorful Murals Spread Awareness of Endangered Animal Species

Murals by Louis Masai

The animal kingdom is filled with fascinating species of all shapes and sizes. However, many of these creatures are facing endangerment and even extinction due to the devastating effects of climate change. That is why one artist is using his creative talents to spread awareness for these vulnerable species. Based in London since 2010, Louis Masai creates striking large-scale murals of rare and endangered animals.

Masai’s artwork is immediately recognizable for its bright, graphic style. He uses large blocks of colors and patterns to build up each subject and create a type of patchwork effect. Stripes, flowers, and fruits are just a few of the motifs commonly found in his projects. As a result, these animal murals often resemble plush quilted toys. In most of Masai’s murals, the viewer can also spot a large bee carrying a needle and thread that leads to the “stitched” animal. This is intended to

China Bringing Xinjiang-Style Forced Labor Camps to Tibet, Report Says

In what appears to replicate what’s happening in China’s Xinjiang region to Uighur Muslims, a new report from the Jamestown Foundation, corroborated by Reuters, details evidence of a vast program in a remote region of Tibet aimed at promoting Chinese national unity and patriotism, instilling “work discipline,” and eradicating what the Chinese Communist Party refers to as “backward thinking” by the Tibetan people. 

According to evidence uncovered by researcher Adrian Zenz of the Jamestown Foundation, a U.S.-based think tank, China relocated more than 500,000 “rural surplus workers” in Tibet in the first seven months of 2020 into military-style facilities and “re-education centers” to train them as factory workers for areas of the country in need of manufacturing output. 

China has defended the program as part of its ambitious poverty alleviation plan under President Xi Jinping, but documents examined by Zenz as part of his research reveal parallels to the detention

Florida Gators Defense Playing ‘Different Style of Football’

From the outside looking in, the worst aspect of the Florida Gators football team is its defense. A basic observation, no doubt, but it rings true from head to toe from this perspective. 

The Gators began their season with a shootout at Ole Miss, posting 642 total yards and 51 points compared to allowing 613 yards and 35 points right back. South Carolina followed that up with a more pedestrian 329 yards and 24 points, but the Gators allowed to Gamecocks to convert a miserable 5-of-6 fourth-down attempts and run 83 plays (36:23 time of possession) compared to UF’s 53 (23:37). 

This past Saturday, Texas A&M was able to defeat Florida by way of 543 total yards, including 338 from quarterback Kellen Mond, and another 160 from the rushing attack in the second-half alone.

Head coach Dan Mullen hinted at changes to come defensively after the A

Gather ’round, fans of The Matrix franchise, because new details about The Matrix 4 have emerged. The Matrix 4 co-star Jessica Henwick (Iron FistGame of Thrones) has shared new details about director Lana Wachowski‘s filming style on the next Matrix movie. The fourth installment will arrive in theaters in 2021, nearly 20 years after the third movie, The Matrix Revolutions, was released.
