7/18/2019 2:26:16 PM

By Anita Snow   BISBEE, Ariz. (AP)—The darkest, most violent chapter in the history of Bisbee was an open secret for decades in the funky old Arizona copper town 7 miles (11 kilometers) north of the U.S.-Mexico border. But few residents knew the details of how about 1,200 miners, most of them immigrants, were pulled violently from their homes a century ago by a private police force and put on cattle cars for their deportation to a desolate area of New Mexico. The filming of “Bisbee '17,” a documentary about what happened July 12, 1917, was a...

The moon landing was a giant leap for movies, too
7/18/2019 2:24:31 PM

By Jake Coyle   NEW YORK (AP)—In 1964, Stanley Kubrick, on the recommendation of the science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, bought a telescope. “He got this Questar and he attached one of his cameras to it,” remembers Katharina Kubrick, the filmmaker's stepdaughter. “On a night where there was a lunar eclipse, he dragged us all out onto the balcony and we were able to see the moon like a big rubber ball. I don't think I've seen it as clearly since. He loved that thing. He looked at it all the time.” Space exploration was then...

7/18/2019 2:22:52 PM

By Lindsey Bahr   LOS ANGELES (AP)—“Spider-Man: Far From Home” is celebrating another weekend at No. 1, but non-franchise fare continues to struggle at the box office. Fresh studio-released counterprograming such as the horror movie “Crawl” and the action-comedy “Stuber” barely made a dent in the web-slinger's earnings, although there is a glimmer of hope in the independent world. The “Spider-Man” sequel added $45.3 million in its second weekend, down only 51% according to studio estimates Sunday, bringing its...

By Marilynn Marchione   LOS ANGELES (AP)—Scientists are closing in on a long-sought goal—a blood test to screen people for possible signs of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. On Monday at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference, half a dozen research groups gave new results on various experimental tests, including one that seems 88% accurate at indicating Alzheimer's risk. Doctors are hoping for something to use during routine exams, where most dementia symptoms are evaluated, to gauge who needs more extensive...

California’s effort to stop surprise hospital bills stalls
7/18/2019 2:15:49 PM

SACRAMENTO (AP)—A California proposal aimed at limiting high medical bills from emergency room visits stalled Wednesday, with the author saying opposition from hospitals was insurmountable this year. Democratic Assemblyman David Chiu said he'll continue working on the bill and try to bring it back next year. It's the latest attempt by a state Legislature or Congress to rein in exorbitant hospitals bills when patients need emergency care but have little say about what hospitals they are taken to. Chiu's bill would have capped what emergency patients pay at their...
