Settlement reportedly reveals hospital’s fears of adverse publicity over family’s allegations of botched surgery

A hospital has paid the estate of astronaut Neil Armstrong $6m in a confidential agreement to settle allegations that post-surgical complications led to his death seven years ago, according to court documents.

The 2014 settlement went to 10 relatives of the space explorer who made history 50 years ago by becoming the first man to walk on the moon. They included Armstrong’s two sons, sister, brother and six grandchildren, according to documents filed with the Hamilton county probate court in Cincinnati, Ohio which became publicly available on Tuesday.

There are 10 major movies coming to theaters Christmas week — here they all are
Lucasfilm, Mandarin Films, Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures From "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" to "Bombshell" there are a lot of movies coming out around the holidays. Insider rounds up the many films you can look forward to around Christmas. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Despite the holiday, Christmas is one of the most popular times to head out to the movies. This year, there are four films opening on Christmas Day and a handful of other potential blockbusters opening the weekend before. Not sure what to see? Insider rounded up the wider releases that will be out around the holidays. It's a lot more than just "Star Wars."1. "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" Lucasfilm Release date: December 20, 2019 What it's about: The big holiday event of the year is Disney and Lucasfilm's "Star Wars" sequel. It's the culmination of nine movies, wrapping up the Skywalker Saga, which started in 1977's "A New Hope." Why you should see it: The "Star Wars" universe has left a lot of questions unanswered while teasing many more. Will we finally learn the truth about Rey's parentage and what's up with her new lightsaber? How will Princess Leia's story wrap up? Is Emperor Palpatine back from the dead? Director J.J. Abrams has a massive task ahead of him. After delivering a nostalgic return to a galaxy far, far away in "The Force Awakens," Abrams is tasked with closing out the franchise after a divisive eighth entry into the franchise. Hopefully, he wraps up everything neatly in "Episode IX" to bring the saga to a satisfying close.  Watch the final trailer for the movie here.  Read more: 'Star Wars' fans are going wild with theories about Rey's red lightsaber in the new 'Rise of Skywalker' teaser   2. "Cats" Universal Pictures Release date: December 20, 2019 What it's about: Based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber play, a group of cats, the Jellicles, decide to send one cat to "the Heaviside Layer" (aka heaven) to be reborn. Why we're interested one way or another: As bizarre as the trailers may be, the film has too many big stars to ignore it. Taylor Swift, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Jason Derulo, Jennifer Hudson, and more are in the cast. You can see the full cast of "Cats" and who they're playing here.  3. "Bombshell" BRON Studios/GEM Entertainment Release date: December 20, 2019 What it's about: "Bombshell" follows the real-life events surrounding the resignation of Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. He stepped down after Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron), Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman), and other women accused him of sexual harassment.  Why to see it: The Ailes scandal was one of the first instances of women speaking out against powerful sexual harassers, since it happened about a year before the Me Too movement really took off. It'll be interesting to see how the filmmakers approach the subject matter in retrospect, given our attitudes towards toxic masculinity and abuses of power now.  You can watch the trailer here.

The typical American heir is now a middle-class 50-something who puts the money toward retirement
Westend61/Getty Over the last 30 years, Americans receiving inheritances have gone from an average age of 41 to 51, according to a new white paper published by United Income from Capital One. As of 2016, more than a quarter of inheritances go to people over age 61. Oftentimes, they're used to bolster financial security in retirement. Researchers say Americans receiving larger inheritances later in life is the result of increased life expectancy, solid market returns, and retirees spending less than they have in the past. Read more personal finance coverage. While stories about sudden inheritances upending the lives of young people persist, they're actually the minority. In a new white paper published by United Income from Capital One, researchers found that as of 2016 the average age of Americans receiving an inheritance is 51 — a 10-year increase from 1989.

Boeing's Dreamliner deal with Emirates has a major downside for the plane maker (BA)
Emirates Emirates Airline ordered 30 Boeing 787 Dreamliners at the Dubai Airshow on Wednesday. While Emirates' firming the Dreamliner order was good news for Boeing, it came at a cost — the airline reduced its order for the new Boeing 777X to 126 planes, down from 156. The 777X program has faced myriad delays, frustrating airline customers. Sign up for Business Insider's transportation newsletter, Shifting Gears, to get more stories like this in your inbox.

Emirates Airline and Boeing announced a deal for 30 of the plane maker's 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, worth $8.8 billion dollars at list price, on the third day of the Dubai airshow. The deal was a certain sign of relief for Boeing, which has been nervously eyeing open delivery slots in its 787 production schedule beginning as early as during the next two years, and increasing significantly in 2022. Orders have slowed down as a result of the US's ongoing trade wars.

Facebook will now let brands choose exactly where its ads will show
Facebook made a move to calm advertiser fears as the company continues to deal with the fallout from its political ad policies. On Wednesday, Facebook announced an array of new test features specifically aimed at protecting brands on the social network. These tools were created to help companies wield more control over where their ads run. Most important are publisher whitelists. Advertisers will now be able to tell Facebook exactly what sites, videos, and apps it feels comfortable running ads on. Facebook previously allowed advertisers to create block lists, letting the social media giant know which content it does not want to run ads on. However, it's nearly impossible to list every video and app an advertiser wouldn’t want to associate with. This makes things simpler for advertisers, and lets them be more proactive. The whitelist covers Facebook advertising on third-party apps and in-video ads. The company also announced a whitelist for content-specific videos as well.

Cat found in New Mexico 5 years after being lost in Oregon
“I’m excited to hold him. I get to rub the belly – the fuzzy belly. When I last saw him, he was maybe the size of a large burrito and now I’m assuming he’s the size of four large burritos.” — Sasha's human, Viktor Usov. Portland resident Viktor Usov’s cat went missing five years ago. The black, long-haired catboi was found in New Mexico, recently, and returned to his loving owner. Sasha the cat was flown from Santa Fe NM to Portland International Airport, with help from the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society and American Airlines. Don't miss the wonderful reunion video at the Shelter's website -- and consider donating! FOX 12 spoke with Usov as he waited for Sasha to land. This, folks, is the best quote of forever. Excerpt: “I’m excited to hold him,” Usov said. “I get to rub the belly – the fuzzy belly.” “When I last saw him, he was maybe the size of a large burrito and now I’m assuming he’s the size of four large burritos,” Usov added. And from the story in the Santa Fe New Mexican today: Officers from the city’s Animal Services Division picked him up on a south-side street and delivered him to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society, where staff scanned for a microchip to determine if he had a human. A phone call shortly after revealed the extent of Sasha’s expedition across the American West. “I let him out one night and he never came home,” said Viktor Usov of Portland, Ore., who had been Sasha’s owner and was expecting to be reunited with the feline Tuesday.

Republicans are grasping at straws after EU ambassador Gordon Sondland blew up one of their last defenses of Trump
REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst The US ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland, offered damning testimony against President Donald Trump in the fourth day of public impeachment hearings on Wednesday. "We followed the president's orders," Sondland said. He testified to the existence of an explicit quid pro quo linking frozen military aid to Ukraine and a desired White House meeting to investigations into Trump's political rivals. But Republicans zeroed in on Sondland stating he did not directly communicate with Trump on the security assistance being conditioned on the investigations.  The GOP is grasping at straws by focusing on this narrow aspect of Sondland's testimony given the mounting trove of evidence that backs him up.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
