But just as he was starting to establish himself in a new career as a musician in London, life threw Adam a curve ball when out of the blue he was offered his first big break on TV. Now set to star in a new BBC NI drama Counsel, the 26-year-old from Lisburn will launch his career in style as a leading character in the powerful new production. Sure to set pulses racing, the handsome newcomer proved a natural in the role of 18-year-old Gareth Fleming, playing alongside co-star Valene Kane. Valene, best-known for her appearances in The Fall, Thirteen and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, plays Olivia, a senior barrister specialising in family law who appears to have it all.

President Donald Trump has derided the team Robert Mueller had assembled to probe Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election as "angry Democrats" operating a corrupt "witch hunt," but the group has a stellar track record of rooting out corruption — and of walking away when they don't have enough to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.

POLITICS 11/24/2018 05:00 am ET A South Bronx school started by a child welfare agency has gradually found answers for educating youth in foster care By Caroline Preston BRONX, N.Y. — Sasha Redlener slipped into a child-sized chair at a table beside first-grader Alyssa. It was midway through a class discussion on safety, with the students at Mott Haven Academy Charter School scratching out answers to questions like, “What does it mean to feel safe?” and “What can you do to help make your school feel safe?” But Alyssa was sticking out her tongue and shimmying in her chair. Redlener asked the girl if she was comfortable at her table. “I’m comfortable,” said Alyssa. “I just have a lot of energy.” “I can see that,” said Redlener, suggesting they visit the water fountain for a quick break.

Gallery: How the Woodmore Elementary school bus crash shaped Chattanooga police response to victims +3 more photos It's been two years since the deadly Woodmore bus crash, and in that time, Chattanooga Police Department leaders say, they've been reflecting on what worked well and what needs improvement should disaster strike again. Chattanooga is no stranger to tragedy. On June 25, 2015, a nine-vehicle crash killed six people, two of whom were children, after Benjamin Brewer's tractor-trailer crashed into slow traffic near Interstate 75's Exit 11 in Ooltewah, Tennessee. Then on July 16, 2016, Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, 24, opened fire at a joint military recruitment center, injuring a Marine recruiter. Abdulazeez then sped to the U.S. Naval and Marine Reserve Center, where he killed four Marines and a Navy petty officer. But the Woodmore crash was different.
