“Evicted,” an exhibit at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library aims to shed light on the eviction crisis in the Mid-South and the entire country. FOX13′s reporter Jack Bilyeu spoke to a mother at the exhibition who said she and her daughters are fighting eviction right now. Lashea Israel said she and her daughters were evicted from their Castalia apartment just two months ago.

Researchers at Princeton University’s “Eviction Lab” report nearly 50,000 evictions have been filed in Memphis since Mar.

That report “distorts China’s national defense policy and military strategy, makes groundless speculation about China’s military development and grossly interferes in China’s internal affairs on the issue of Taiwan," ministry spokesperson Tan Kefei said in a statement. Tan also accused the U.S. of having the world's largest nuclear arsenal, although that title is actually held by Russia, a close Chinese military, economic and diplomatic partner. China has long adhered to what it calls a purely defensive national security strategy, including a claim that it will never be the first to use nuclear weapons in a conflict. Already-tense relations between Washington and Beijing soured even more in August when U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan. Despite some moves to improve relations, China has shown an increasingly hard line on military affairs.2 months ago FOX13 Memphis
Virus Outbreak Macao Casino Lisboa, right, is seen in Macao on Dec. 28, 2022. Now, China's worst wave of infections so far is keeping away the hoards of high rollers who usually fill its casinos. Since entry into Macao requires a negative PCR test result before departure, many in mainland China could not visit because they were infected, he said. But he said Macao's tourism officials have staged road shows in China during the pandemic, leveraging the scenic city's location just across the border. The Lunar New Year will bring a sense of the potential for a longer term rebound in tourism, he said.1 month ago FOX13 Memphis

Four Dead University of Idaho FILE - Bryan Kohberger, who is accused of killing four University of Idaho students, leaves after an extradition hearing at the Monroe County Courthouse in Stroudsburg, Pa., Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2023. Nearly two months after four University of Idaho students were killed near campus — and two weeks after a suspect was arrested and charged with the crime — the picturesque school grounds are starting to feel a little closer to normal. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, Pool, File) (Matt Rourke)BOISE, Idaho — (AP) — The man accused in the fatal stabbings of four University of Idaho students is expected to appear in court Thursday, a day after classes resumed for undergraduates, many of whom until recent days were stricken by fear over the case. There's no guarantee that a preliminary hearing will occur, however. Likewise, if a defendant loses a preliminary hearing, they are still presumed innocent in the eyes of the law, and the preliminary hearing cannot be used against them when the case goes to trial.23 days ago FOX 13 Memphis
