Charges have officially been filed against former Arkansas chemistry professors David Bateman and Dr. Bradley Rowland for manufacturing meth, possession, including advanced penalties for manufacturing meth in a Drug Free Zone. According to court documents, in December of 2019, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office received information from HSU’s legal team of the two professors acting in a way “that lead such faculty members to believe that these persons were involved in some type of illegal activity.” Documents also state that the suspects exhibited weight loss and were “extremely guarded” about who was in their laboratories and when. In October, the Reynolds Science Center building on the Arkadelphia campus was evacuated and closed after an “undetermined chemical odor” was reported. Three weeks after the building was closed, Reynolds was reopened after a third-party environmental service company tested the building and indicated that the science center met all EPA recommendations.(https://bit.ly/375MK3r)

Halfway into February might seem like an odd time to run a list of our most anticipated movies of 2020. But let’s be real: The first few weeks of just about any year tend to be a pretty dire time for moviegoing, give or take the odd unseasonable January triumph or low-profile arthouse gem. Hollywood, as a rule, mainly treats the post-holidays timeframe like a write-off period—a designated wasteland for its least promising projects. And those looking to see something good in theaters will often reach not for brand new movies but the previous year’s award-season contenders they haven’t caught up with yet. As a result, January often feels like an extension of the year it follows, at least cinematically speaking. Maybe we all collectively abide by an unspoken agreement: The year in movies doesn’t really begin until February.

A two-year investigation has resulted in federal prosecutors charging four members of the Chinese military for their roles in a major breach of credit-reporting company Equifax in 2017. The data breach was the largest in U.S. history and exposed personal data affecting nearly 150 million people. The four members of Beijing's People's Liberation Army were charged with computer fraud and abuse, economic espionage and wire fraud. Prosecutors say the suspected hackers found a vulnerability in Equifax servers that gave them login credentials and for two months mined data that included credit card numbers, drivers licenses and social security numbers.

Pro baseball once had women players. While there are currently no female players in Major League Baseball, there have been plenty of women in professional men's leagues. The first was Lizzy Arlington, who pitched during the ninth inning for the Reading Coal Heavers in 1898 and won her team the game. A little over 30 years later, an African-American woman, Jackie Mitchell, pitched against the Yankees during an exhibition game, striking out both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. What's more impressive: Mitchell was 17 years old at the time.
