The two sides had been divided on issues of pay, the size of writing staffs on shows and the use of artificial intelligence in how scripts are created. The agreement, still subject to the approval of union members, was reached Sunday night after five days of lengthy negotiations. Actors, who joined the wri

HONOLULU (AP) — From just outside the burn zone in Lahaina, Jes Claydon can see the ruins of the rental home where she lived for 13 years and raised three children. Little remains recognizable beyond the jars of sea glass that stood outside the front door. On Monday, officials are expected to begin lifting restrictions on entry to the area, and Claydon hopes to collect those jars and any other mementos she might find. “I want the freedom to just be there and absorb what happened,” Claydon said.

STORY: At a news conference, NASA Planetary Science Division Director Lori Glaze called the retrieval - of the largest soil sample ever scooped up from the surface of an asteroid streaking through Earth's atmosphere - "incredible".The gumdrop-shaped capsule, released from the robotic spacecraft OSIRIS-REx as the mothership passed within 67,000 miles (107,826 km) of Earth hours earlier, touched down within a designated landing zone west of Salt Lake City.Osiris-REx Principal Investigator Dante Lauretta laid out the goals of studying the asteroid, named Bennu, to the media. "The key objective for me and one of the driving objectives of this program is to try to understand, did carbon-rich asteroids, like Bennu, deliver the compounds that may have led to the origin of life on our planet?"He also assured people the sample poses a low risk for planet Earth. The final descent and landing, shown on a NASA livestream, capped a six-year joint mission between the U.S. space agency and the University of Arizona. It was only the third asteroid sample, and by far the biggest, ever returned to Earth for analysis, following two similar missions by Japan's space agency ending in 2010 and 2020.

Flying above enemy lines, a Ukrainian reconnaissance drone sends a clear image back to soldiers hiding in a basement a few kilometers away: A Russian armored vehicle is idling along a key logistics route, looking like easy prey in the artillery-scarred green landscape. “Snow,” says a calm commander known by the battlefield name Giocondo, who allowed The Associated Press to follow him and his unit of drone pilots on condition of anonymity to protect their identities. The bird’s-eye image of the armored vehicle reappears, and a second drone – this one laden with explosives – is quickly launched.
