Cuttlefish are amazing alien-like creatures that, along with octopuses and squids, are part of the cephalopod family. These intelligent invertebrates, with tentacles for catching prey and arms for handling food, are the masters of disguise. Scouring the seabed, at depths of 200 metres, they are crab-hunting specialists.

In this fascinating clip, we see a cuttlefish using its hypnotic super power to trap its prey. All is going well for this fearsome predator as it has a large crab in its sights. But, as you know, predators can quickly become the hunted ones. How will a cuttlefish escape certain death when a deadly shark approaches? Watch the clip to find out.

A 6-year-old United Airlines passenger was left scarred after her hot meal fell off a faulty tray table, a lawsuit says

  • A lawsuit says a 6-year-old girl was left scarred by a hot meal on a United Airlines flight in 2022.
  • It alleges that a "defective" tray table caused the meal to fall onto the girl's lap.
  • It also accuses United of failing to properly train flight attendants to treat burn injuries.

Insider Today

Two parents are suing United Airlines , alleging their 6-year-old daughter was burned by a hot meal because of a faulty tray table.

Michal and Ben Fefferman filed the lawsuit, which Business Insider has seen, in a Chicago court last Wednesday. It says the incident took place on a flight from Tel Aviv, Israel, to Newark, New Jersey, in 2022.

The complaint says a flight attendant gave an "unreasonably hot" meal to the girl's mother, who then placed it on her tray table.

It says that "this particular tray table was defective, slanting downward toward the seat."

The suit says the meal slid off onto the 6-year-old's lap. It added that she suffered "severe" burn injuries that have left her "scarred and disfigured."

The suit says that the girl's mother requested medical attention from the cabin crew but that the crew couldn't help her properly as the plane didn't have suitable supplies to treat burns.

The lawsuit says the 6-year-old "suffered in extreme discomfort for the remainder of the 12-hour flight."

It alleges that United didn't properly train its flight attendants to safely provide hot meals to minor passengers or to respond to burn injuries.

The Feffermans requested a jury trial for medical costs and unspecified damages over $75,000.

Their case claims negligence as well as liability under the Montreal Convention, an international treaty stipulating that airlines are liable for any passenger injuries aboard an aircraft unless they can prove the passenger was negligent.

When reached by BI, United Airlines said it could not comment on pending litigation.

Correction: February 13, 2024 — An earlier version of this story misspelled the parents' surname. They are the Feffermans, not the Fettermans.

From 2022-2023, chronic absenteeism declined in 33 of the 39 states AEI looked at. But it was still a persistent problem: In a handful of places, including Nevada, Washington, D.C., Michigan, New Mexico and Oregon, roughly 1 in 3 students – or more – were chronically absent. LA Johnson/NPR hide caption

From 2022-2023, chronic absenteeism declined in 33 of the 39 states AEI looked at. But it was still a persistent problem: In a handful of places, including Nevada, Washington, D.C., Michigan, New Mexico and Oregon, roughly 1 in 3 students – or more – were chronically absent.

It's going to take aggressive interventions to repair the pandemic's destructive impact on kids' schooling.

That's the takeaway of two big new studies that look at how America's K-12 students are doing. There's some good news in this new research, to be sure – but there's still a lot of work to do on both student achievement and absenteeism. Here's what to know:

1. Students are starting to make up for missed learning

From spring 2022 to spring 2023, students made important learning gains, making up for about one-third of the learning they had missed in math and a quarter of the learning they had missed in reading during the pandemic.

That's according to the newly updated Education Recovery Scorecard , a co-production of Harvard University's Center for Education Policy Research and The Educational Opportunity Project at Stanford University.

6 things we've learned about how the pandemic disrupted learning

6 things we've learned about how the pandemic disrupted learning

The report says, "Students learned 117 percent in math and 108 percent in reading of what they would typically have learned in a pre-pandemic school year."

In an interview with NPR's All Things Considered , Stanford professor Sean Reardon said that's surprisingly good news: "A third or a quarter might not sound like a lot, but you have to realize the losses from 2019 to 2022 were historically large."

When the same team of researchers did a similar review last year, they found that, by spring of 2022, the average third- through eighth-grader had missed half a grade level in math and a third of a grade level in reading. So, the fact that students are now making up ground is a good sign.

These results do come with a few caveats, including that the researchers were only able to review data and draw their conclusions from 30 states this year.

2. Despite that progress, very few states are back to pre-pandemic learning levels

The Harvard and Stanford study of student learning includes one sobering sentence: "Alabama is the only state where average student achievement exceeds pre-pandemic levels in math." And average achievement in reading has surpassed pre-pandemic levels in just three of the states they studied: Illinois, Louisiana and Mississippi. Every other state for which they had data has yet to reach pre-pandemic levels in math and reading.

"Many schools made strong gains last year, but most districts are still working hard just to reach pre-pandemic achievement levels," said Harvard's Thomas Kane, one of the learning study's co-authors.

3. Chronic absenteeism also improved in many places ... slightly

The rate of chronic absenteeism – the percentage of students who miss 10% or more of a school year – declined from 2022 to 2023. That's according to research by Nat Malkus at the conservative-leaning American Enterprise Institute (AEI). He found chronic absenteeism declined in 33 of the 39 states he studied.

Yes, "the differences were relatively small," Malkus writes, but it's improvement nonetheless: "the average chronic absenteeism rate across these states in 2023 was 26 percent, down from 28 percent for the same 39 states in 2022."

Glass half-full: Things aren't getting worse.

4. But, again, chronic absenteeism is still high

Malkus found chronic absenteeism was at 26% in 2023. Before the pandemic, in 2019, those same states reported a rate of 15%. That adds some painful context to the "good news" two-point decline in absenteeism from 2022 to 2023. Sure, it's down, but it's still so much higher than it was and should be.

Think of it this way: In 2023, roughly 1 student out of 4 was still chronically absent across the school year.

In a handful of places, including Nevada, Washington, D.C., Michigan, New Mexico and Oregon, roughly 1 in 3 students – or more – were chronically absent. That's a crisis.

Research shows a strong connection between absenteeism and all kinds of negative consequences for students, including an increased likelihood of dropping out of school.

Chronic absenteeism also hurts the students who don't miss school. That's because, as the learning study's authors point out, when absent students return, they require extra attention and "make it hard for teachers to keep the whole class moving."

5. Poverty matters (as always)

Both the learning and the chronic absenteeism studies capture the headwinds that constantly buffet children in poverty.

"No one wants poor children to foot the bill for the pandemic," said Harvard's Kane, "but that is the path that most states are on."

On learning: Reardon told NPR "the pandemic really exacerbated inequality between students in high-poverty and low-poverty districts and students of different racial and ethnic backgrounds."

In 2023, students' academic recovery was relatively strong across groups, which is good – but it means "the inequality that was widened during the pandemic hasn't gotten smaller, and in some places it's actually gotten larger," Reardon told NPR.

In fact, the report says, "in most states, achievement gaps between rich and poor districts are even wider now than they were before the pandemic." The learning study singles out Massachusetts and Michigan as the states where those gaps in math and reading achievement widened the most between poor and non-poor students.

Similarly, Malkus, at AEI, found that, between 2019 and 2022, rates of chronic absenteeism rose much more in high-poverty districts (up from 20% to 37%) than in low-poverty districts (up from 12% to 23%).

"Chronic absenteeism has increased the most for disadvantaged students," Malkus writes, "those who also experienced the greatest learning losses during the pandemic and can least afford the harms that come with chronic absenteeism."

6. Families must play an important role in learning recovery

Both studies acknowledge that families must play an important role in helping students – and schools – find a healthy, post-pandemic normal. The problem is, surveys show parents and guardians often underestimate the pandemic's toll on their children's learning . "Parents cannot advocate effectively for their children's future if they are misinformed," says the learning study.

To combat this, the learning researchers propose that districts be required to inform parents if their child is below grade-level in math or English. Those parents could then enroll their students in summer learning, tutoring and after-school programs, all of which have benefitted from federal COVID relief dollars. That funding is set to expire this fall, and some of these learning recovery opportunities may dry up, so the clock is ticking.

7. There's a "culture problem" around chronic absenteeism

Reducing chronic absenteeism, Malkus says, will also depend on families.

"This is a culture problem," Malkus tells NPR. "And in schools and in communities, culture eats policy for breakfast every day."

By "culture problem," Malkus is talking about how families perceive the importance of daily attendance relative to other challenges in their lives. He says some parents seem more inclined now to let their students miss school for various reasons, perhaps not realizing the links between absenteeism and negative, downstream consequences.

"Look, the patterns and routines of going to school were disrupted and to some degree eroded during the pandemic," Malkus says. "And I don't think we've had a decisive turn back that we need to have, to turn this kind of behavior around, and it's going to stay with students until that culture changes."

How do you do that? Malkus points to some low-cost options — like texting or email campaigns to increase parental involvement and encourage kids to get back in school – but says these, alone, aren't "up to the scale of what we're facing now."

Higher-cost options for schools to consider could include door-knocking campaigns, sending staff on student home-visits and requiring that families of chronically absent students meet in-person with school staff.

The learning study goes one step further: "Elected officials, employers, and community leaders should launch public awareness campaigns and other initiatives to lower student absenteeism." Because, after all, students can't make up for the learning they missed during the pandemic if they don't consistently attend school now.

What both of these studies make clear is there is no one solution that will solve these problems, and success will require further investment, aggressive intervention and patience.

Malkus says, even the high-cost, high-return options will likely only drive down chronic absenteeism by about four percentage points. A big win, he says, "but four percentage points against 26% isn't going to get us where we need to go."

A man speaks outside court

How will Donald Trump pay the $438m he owes in penalties from civil trials?

Two giant penalties handed down in a matter of weeks will cost him millions – and that’s only part of what he could owe

  • Full report: Trump ordered to pay over $350m in New York fraud case
  • Trump fraud trial ruling – live updates

In a matter of weeks, Donald Trump was hit with two giant penalties from two civil trials in New York – $83m for defamation against the writer E Jean Carroll and $354.9m plus pre-judgment interest for inflating the value of his assets on government financial statements.

The verdicts combined will cost him some $438m, and that’s only part of what Trump could owe across numerous lawsuits. The payments will probably create a sizable dent in his wallet. Bloomberg’s billionaires’ list estimated that Trump’s net worth in 2021 was about $2.3bn, meaning these two rulings alone could take out almost a fifth of Trump’s net worth.

Trump’s finances have been notoriously opaque, not least because the Trump Organization is a private business, meaning it does not have to file public financial reports. But here’s what we know about what Trump has to pay and how it will affect his finances.

It all depends on the appeals

Trump is likely to appeal both cases, the outcomes of which could affect how much he ends up owing. It is unclear how long the appeals will take. For reference, an appeals court has yet to rule on a May 2023 ruling for a separate Carroll case that found Trump guilty of sexual abuse and defamation. Trump was ordered to pay $5m in damages in that case.

Also, the appeals court is technically considering two appeals coming out of Trump’s fraud trial. The first appeal came after a September pre-trial ruling found Trump guilty of fraud, ordering the removal of his business licenses. The second appeal is about the penalty the New York judge Arthur Engoron ordered Trump to pay after the months-long trial. It is unclear whether the appeals court will decide on the two appeals together or separately, but it will probably be at least a few months before any decision is announced.

Bankruptcy for Trump is unlikely

While $438m is no small sum, Trump is wealthy. Trump ally Rudy Giuliani declared bankruptcy after a jury ordered him to pay $148m to two Georgia election workers; the former New York mayor has declared he owes between $100m and $500m and has assets of between $1m and $10m.

To declare bankruptcy, Trump would have to prove that the verdict outweighs his assets, something that is highly unlikely.

During a deposition with prosecutors for the fraud trial in April 2023, Trump said that he had more than $400m in cash. However, last year, Forbes reported that Trump had since invested the bulk of his cash in bonds and treasuries, with a small portion kept in stocks and mutual funds. After his guilty verdicts, Trump will probably have to sell a good chunk of those investments.

A big question is whether Trump will have to touch anything in his real estate portfolio. Trump has gotten a cash boost from selling his properties before: he sold his golf club in the Bronx last year, and in 2022, he completed the sale of the Old Post Office building in Washington DC, which was converted into a hotel. Court documents showed that the sale of the Old Post Office netted $131.4m before taxes, according to the New York Times .

It will be a tough decision for a man who, just several years ago, claimed he was worth $10bn. This pride in his wealth has recently been used against him. In closing arguments in Carroll’s January trial, her lawyers told the jury that they should punish Trump with higher damages precisely because he claims he is so wealthy.

“A billionaire like Donald Trump could pay a million dollars a day for 10 years and still have money left in the bank,” Carroll attorney’s Roberta Kaplan told the jury on 26 January. “It will take an unusually high punitive damages award to have any hope of stopping Donald Trump.”

Trump will still have to pay the court, even as appeals go through

Even though Trump is waiting on multiple appeals decisions, he will have to give the court the money to hold on to. If Trump wins any of his appeals, he can get his money back.

Trump has a few options in paying the court. He could pay up everything that he owes now in cash. Or he could try to get an appeal bond, meaning he wouldn’t have to pay all the cash up front in exchange for a premium and putting up collateral.

In his May 2023 Carroll case, Trump set aside the $5m he owed in cash, saving him about $55,500 in what would have been bond premiums. Though Trump may prefer to pay out the verdicts in cash, it is unclear whether he has enough on hand to avoid a bond this time.

Trump is rich with campaign money, but spending it on personal legal expenses will be complicated

Trump has been zealously fundraising off his legal troubles, probably because he has sizable legal fees for his two civil trials and four criminal trials.

What Trump can pay for using his campaign money is unclear. A federal law bans candidates from using campaign funds for personal use, making it unlikely that Trump can use campaign funds to help pay off some of the Carroll award and fraud penalty.

But Trump has not shied away from using campaign funds for some of his trials. The Associated Press reported in October that Trump’s Save America political action committee (Pac) had paid $37m in legal fees, more than half of the Pac’s total spending.

And the money keeps flowing in. Trump was the Republican candidate who received the most donations last fall, raising $45.5m in the third quarter. Ron DeSantis, who dropped out of the race in January, raised the second most, taking in about $30m.

2024 NBA All-Star schedule: Dunk Contest time, TV channel, live stream for 3-point shootout, Steph vs. Sabrina

There's a new event in the mix this year at all-star saturday night.

mac-mcclung-getty.png

The 2024 NBA All-Star Weekend is now just days away, with all the excitement set for Feb. 16-18 in Indianapolis. While Friday night's Rising Stars Challenge and the actual All-Star Game on Sunday are both interesting, All-Star Saturday Night and its array of events are always the most anticipated part of the annual showcase. That's no different this year, with a number of stars set to be in action.

Here's everything you need to know about the 2024 iteration of All-Star Saturday night:  

Skills Challenge

  • When:  Saturday, Feb. 17 
  • Time:  8 p.m. ET (first event) |  TV channel:  TNT | Live stream : TNT app

Participants: 

  • Team Pacers : Tyrese Haliburton , Bennedict Mathurin , Myles Turner
  • Team Top Picks: Paolo Banchero ( Orlando Magic ), Anthony Edwards ( Minnesota Timberwolves ), Victor Wembanyama ( San Antonio Spurs )
  • Team All-Stars: Scottie Barnes ( Toronto Raptors ), Tyrese Maxey (Philaelphia 76ers ), Trae Young ( Atlanta Hawks )

The team format is back for the Skills Challenge, which will be contested between Team Pacers, Team Top Picks and Team All-Stars. There will be three rounds -- Team Relay, Team Passing and Team Shooting -- that challenge all contestants in different facets of the game. 

The winning team in the first two rounds will receive "100 Challenge Points," and the winning team in the third round, the shooting competition, will receive "200 Challenge Points." At the conclusion of all three rounds, the team with the most points will be crowned champion. In the event of a tie, those two teams will compete in a halfcourt shooting contest, with the team that makes a shot from halfcourt in the least amount of time declared the winner. 

Odds: Top Picks +140, All-Stars +180, Pacers +180

3-Point Contest

  • When:  Saturday, Feb. 17
  • Time : After Skills Challenge (Approx. 8:30 p.m. ET) |  TV channel:  TNT  | Live stream : TNT app

Participants : 

  • Malik Beasley , Milwaukee Bucks
  • Jalen Brunson , New York Knicks
  • Tyrese Haliburton, Pacers
  • Damian Lillard , Bucks (defending champion)
  • Lauri Markkanen , Utah Jazz
  • Donovan Mitchell , Cleveland Cavaliers
  • Karl-Anthony Towns , Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Trae Young, Hawks

The 3-Point Contest remains largely unchanged since its inception. There are five racks set up in five spots around the arc with five balls each. Four of the racks have four regular balls worth one point and one money ball worth two points, while one rack has five money balls. In recent years, two long-range shots worth three points have been added to the mix. 

In the first round, each contestant will have 70 seconds to make as many shots as possible, and the top three scores will advance to the championship round. There, those players will shoot again under the same rules, with the highest score in the championship round named the winner. 

Odds: Lillard +375, Haliburton +425, Young +500, Beasley +650, Brunson +700, Towns +800, Mitchell +800, Markkanen +800

Steph vs. Sabrina

  • Time:  After 3-Point Contest (Approx. 9:15 p.m. ET) |  TV channel:  TNT | Live stream : TNT app
  • Steph Curry , Golden State Warriors
  • Sabrina Ionescu, New York Liberty

A special event has been added to the mix this year, and will feature Warriors legend Steph Curry and reigning WNBA 3-Point Contest champion Sabrina Ionescu, who set the highest score of all-time last summer with 37 points . The two elite shooters will go head-to-head in a one-round battle under standard 3-Point Contest rules. 

Dunk Contest

  • Time:  After Steph vs. Sabrina (Approx. 9:30 p.m. ET) |  TV channel:  TNT |  Live stream : TNT app
  • Jaylen Brown , Boston Celtics
  • Jaime Jaquez Jr. , Miami Heat
  • Mac McClung , Osceola Magic (defending champion)
  • Jacob Toppin , New York Knicks

As usual, the Dunk Contest will close out All-Star Saturday Night, and the standard format is back. Each participant will get two dunks in the first round, which will be evaluated by five judges. The minimum score a dunk can receive is 40, and the maximum is 50. The two dunkers with the highest combined scores in the first round will advance to the championship round. 

There, each dunker will again have two dunks to show what they can do, and the player with the highest combined score in the championship round will lift the trophy. 

Odds:  McClung -190, Brown +420, Toppin +600, Jaquez Jr. +650
