Ahoy! Archaeologists excavating pirate Blackbeard’s sunken ship, named Queen Anne’s Revenge, recently unearthed from the wreckage various medical devices–and some of them look pretty darn terrifying.

Among the grisly finds were a urethral syringe that would have been used to treat syphilis, two pumps, and a porringer that would have been used in bloodletting, Live Science reported.

“We just have to understand that these people were suffering,” Dr. Linda Carnes-McNaughton, an archaeologist with the U.S. Department of Defense who volunteered on the excavation, told CNN. “They were seeking relief for any kind of ailment, and certainly if there was warfare on the water, there were wounds among other ailments that needed treatment. It wasn’t always a formally trained person in desperate times. That’s probably more common than we know.”

Obamacare repeal falls off Republicans’ to-do list as law takes hold

After five years and more than 50 votes in Congress, the Republican campaign to repeal the Affordable Care Act is essentially over.

GOP congressional leaders, unable to roll back the law while President Obama remains in office and unwilling to again threaten a government shutdown to pressure him, are focused on other issues, including trade and tax reform.

Less noted, senior Republican lawmakers have quietly incorporated many of the law’s key protections into their own proposals, including guaranteeing coverage and providing government assistance to help consumers purchase insurance.

Oklahoma prosecutors are reviewing the shooting of an unarmed black man by a sheriff’s deputy who says he was unintentionally struck with a gun instead of Tasered during the fatal takedown.

Video released Friday shows the dramatic April 2 arrest of Tulsa man Eric Harris, 44, and the moment Reserve Deputy Robert Bates, 73, shoots him.

“Taser! Taser!” Bates is heard shouting, before firing a single round from his regular gun, hitting Harris, who was pinned to the ground by officers.

Your Right to Record: Protected by Law, Disrespected by Law Enforcement

While Feidin Santana and Ramsey Orta are hardly household names, these men played pivotal roles in one of the most important civil rights stories of our time.

They made news by using their cellphone cameras to record the police killings of two unarmed black men: Walter Scott and Eric Garner. And though they may not have realized it at the time, such recording is constitutionally protected.

But that may be little comfort to people who record tense encounters between police and the public. After filming the April 4 shooting of Walter Scott, Santana told NBC News, “I felt that my life, with this information, might be in danger. I thought about erasing the video and just getting out of the community, you know Charleston, and living some place else.”

Streaming TV Is Bigger Than Ever — But Pause Before Cutting The Cord

A colleague of mine was considering ditching his Time Warner Cable subscription in favor of PlayStation’s new Vue TV service, which streams live TV over the Internet.

It has a user-friendly menu and the option to record programs, plus it allows him to watch shows easily through his PlayStation 4 — and a basic package, with more than 50 channels, costs $49.99.

But he was disappointed when he tried out Vue, which for now is only available in New York City, Chicago and Philadelphia. While he was watching one night, the video stuttered and paused, interrupting his viewing. While it only happened once, it was enough to turn him off to the service.

Harry Reid Says He’ll Force A Vote On Loretta Lynch If GOP Doesn’t Act ‘Very, Very Soon’

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Thursday that if Republicans don’t schedule a confirmation vote soon for U.S. attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch, he’ll do it himself.

“I know parliamentary procedure around here and we’re going to put up with this for a little while longer, but not much,” Reid said in an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. “Absolutely we can force votes. If we don’t get something done soon, I will force a vote.”

Lynch has been waiting for more than five months for a vote — far longer than any of her recent predecessors. Most recently, GOP leaders have tied her confirmation vote to the passage of an unrelated sex trafficking bill that’s hit a snag. That bill isn’t moving, so neither is Lynch.

Twin Toddlers Die As Mom Swats Bee

Police say 18-month-old twin boys drowned in a southwestern Arizona canal after their stroller rolled into the flowing water when their mother stopped to bat away a bee.

Yuma police said 26-year-old Alexis Keslar jumped into the steep-sloped canal Friday but couldn’t rescue the boys because the deep water was moving too fast.

Police on Tuesday issued a statement detailing how the twins ended up in the canal and said the Yuma County medical examiner determined that the deaths were accidental drownings.
