Nick Carter Denies Raping Underage Autistic Fan, Says Her Claims Are A ‘Press Stunt’

Nick Carter, 42, has denied a claim that he sexually assaulted an autistic fan after inviting her onto the Backstreet Boys‘ tour bus in 2001. “This claim about an incident that supposedly took place more than 20 years ago is not only legally meritless but also entirely untrue,” his attorney, Michael Holtz, said in a statement obtained by HollywoodLife on Thursday, Dec. 8. “Unfortunately, for several years now, Ms. Ruth has been manipulated into making false allegations about Nick — and those allegations have changed repeatedly and materially over time.”

Rep. Jim Jordan Loses It After Being Called Out Over His Committee Deleting Kanye West Tweet

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) responded fiercely during a committee hearing on Thursday after Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) asked if the MAGA firebrand would “disavow” a since-deleted tweet about Kanye West. The post, which appeared to support Ye, was originally sent out in early October by the GOP House Judiciary Committee—of which Jordan is the ranking member. It was deleted Dec. 1 as Ye launched an antisemitic tirade on Alex Jones’ conspiracy show, Infowars. “Do you denounce your tweet praising Kanye West?” Swalwell asked Jordan, referencing the now-infamous and deleted “West, Trump, Elon” tweet. The right-wing member of Congress fired back: “That tweet was not on our account.” Then, he claimed: “That tweet was removed!” I asked Ranking Member @Jim_Jordan to condemn Trump for calling on the constitution to be abolished & to denounce @JudiciaryGOP’s tweet praising Kanye West. What was his response? “There’s no way Trump is antisemitic” watch here for his full denial.— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) December 8, 2022 Read more at The Daily Beast.

Leaf-Shaped Wall Tiles Full of Living Algae Absorb Pollutants from Rainwater

These unusual leaf-shaped wall tiles aren’t just beautiful — they also actively clean pollutants out of rainwater using channels of living algae. Created by students at the Bio-Integrated Design Lab at University College London (UCL), Indus tiles make use of living organisms to purify water in a sustainable way through a process called bioremediation. The designers created the tiles with India in mind, envisioning large-scale wall installations on factories and other buildings in the country’s rural areas, where no industrial wastewater treatment facilities currently exist. But they have potential to be used in other contexts, too.
