The writer apologized to a man who spent 16 years in prison for her rape

Alice Seabold apologized for the illegal conviction of a man who was found not guilty of raping her in 1981.


In her first book, Lucky, Seabord described being raped. Anthony Broadwater was convicted of the crime. He spent 16 years in prison and was on the sex offender registry for more than 20 years.


Seabold also wrote the novel The Lovely Bones, which Peter Jackson turned into an Oscar-nominated film.


"I am most sorry that the life you could have been unjustly stolen from you, and I know that no apology can change what has happened to you," Seabold said in a statement.

A statement released by Broadwater's lawyers said he was "relieved that she apologized."

Seabold's first autobiographical novel sold more than a million copies, which marked the beginning of her writing career.

In it, she described in detail how an 18-year-old student at Syracuse University in New York was raped.

The American technology company Apple is working on the development of an electric unmanned vehicle and plans to present it in 2025

The company started work on the electric car in 2014 - it happened during the project "Titan".

Two options for operating an unmanned vehicle, which would reduce the driver's involvement in driving, or a completely unmanned vehicle were considered.

The company decided to focus on the second option.


Earlier, the possible date of launch of the car from Apple in 2024 was mentioned, but the plan was intervened by a pandemic, a crisis in the supply of semiconductors and logistics.

The terms of 5-7 years have been discussed for a long time, but now the company hopes to show the car in 2025.

Near San Diego, collectors strangely lost bags of money. Banknotes that were passing by began to collect banknotes lying on the road. However, the story ended with "justice".

Several bags of banknotes fell out of the collection car and flew along the road. Those who saw the bags fall out were the first to get out of the cars. They didn't get confused and started collecting banknotes and filming it on video.


However, the collectors immediately called the police and warned that misappropriation of money could be a criminal offense.

In the end, three Americans were arrested and the rest were forced to return the "found bills."

California Road Patrol Officer Jim Bettencourt said that the collectors may have closed the door of the armored van unsafely, so the bags of money fell out.

Anne Turner Cook is the same girl who has been the face of the Gerber children's brand for so many years. She is 95 years old.

Anne has been the face of the brand since 1928. Neighbor Dorothy Hope Smith drew the girl as a sketch for an advertising company to take part in the competition. The portrait was drawn in pencil, but Smith promised to finish it if he won. But the representatives of the brand liked the pencil drawing.


The sketch became so popular that in 1931 Gerber made the girl's face his official trademark.


"Since then, our Gerber Baby (Ann) has been on all Gerber packages and in every Gerber advertisement," the company reminded.
