I had Image Capture and iphoto open and thought I was opening one image from Image Capture to my desktop. I left the room for a while and when I came back, thousands of images are now on my desktop. Help - how do i get rid of them? It would take me weeks to drag them all to the trash as my computer is not super fast right now.

A viral video showing a black Alabama woman who was wrestled to the ground and partially stripped by two white officers in a Waffle House scuffle has a local city councilman calling for answers and an investigation.

According to WALA, the incident occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning at the restaurant located in Saraland.

The video shows one officer pulling on the woman’s arm after they were called over an argument with employees.

In the Facebook post, the woman, who was arrested, said she objected to the extra fee customers have to pay for plastic tableware, stating the last time she went to this restaurant, her plastic tableware was given to her with no extra charge.

Kevin Folta's wife accuses him of "trying to hide" corporate monies(He is a big defender of Monsano)

She alleges Folta was paid $400 an hour by Bayer

In another extraordinary development in the saga of Dr Kevin Folta, one of the most prominent defenders of glyphosate and GMOs, his own wife has accused him of trying to hide monies paid to him by corporations. Folta denies all her charges.

Folta is already suing the New York Times, and its two-time Pulitzer prize winning reporter Eric Lipton, for defamation over a front-page article that used Folta as a prime example of how some academics had become “actors in lobbying and corporate public relations campaigns”. The article also accused him of not having disclosed the extent of his ties to Monsanto.

His estranged wife’s intervention came after Folta told his followers in a blog that he was “going through a rather nasty divorce”, having “put the nail in the coffin of a stale relationship that needed to end”. In the original version of the blog he also delineated a series of actions by his wife that he objected to, commenting, “That’s the tip of the iceberg, and it’s amazing how evil people can be.” This comment was later deleted.

She says, “I know what I know, and I know even more. I will tell my story and he can go on a smear campaign about me.” She then says, “He is trying to hide funds. He has done consulting work in 2017 for Bayer at $400/hr and has not come forward with it during discovery and even if the consulting is not finished, he already has billable hours to date made during our marriage. These funds were to be paid to him personally, we had plans to pay off the reminder [sic.] of our mortgage and build a new home... These companies will be transparent during discovery as well: Monsanto/Bayer, McGill, Light Emitting Company, Syngenta, Simplot, etc.”

Trump Tried to Have Sex With Teenage Beauty Queen Alicia Machado While He Fat-Shamed Her,

Former Miss Universe Claims

As executive producer of the Miss Universe beauty pageant, Donald Trump made it his mission to publicly shame Alicia Machado, a Venezuelan national who won the 1996 Miss Universe competition, for her weight. But at the same time as he was making Machado’s life miserable by allegedly calling her "Miss Piggy" and forcing her to exercise in front of television cameras, the man who is now President of the United States was repeatedly trying to have sex with the then-teenage beauty queen, Machado claimed for the first time last week.

In an exclusive interview with the Spanish-language channel Telemundo, Machado explained that she had a preexisting contract with Miss Universe before Trump purchased the Miss Universe Organization in 1996. The purchase meant that Trump was now her boss, although he didn’t have the power to alter the terms of her employment, Machado said. Nevertheless, she noted that Trump disrespected her continuously throughout their time working together, and he also tried to sleep with her.
