    Want college to pay off? "Not all degrees are created equal," a newly released study from Glassdoor finds.

    The jobs and recruiting site analyzed nearly 500,000 resumes to determine what it called the 50 highest paying college majors, highlighting those that pay the most during the first five years out of college.

    Computer science, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering topped the list with median base salaries of $70,000, $68,438 and $68,000, respectively, but STEM majors didn't completely saturate the list.

    Glassdoor points out that majors such as graphic design, interior design, public relations and philosophy also surfaced in its research.

    "With approximately 70 percent of American high school graduates enrolling in colleges and universities each year," Glassdoor representatives said in a statement, "a college degree has become an essential stepping stone to landing a great first job."

    Below is Glassdoor's findings of the highest-paying 50 majors, including median base salary and popular entry-level jobs.

    Hillary Clinton is maintaining a 50-point lead over Donald Trump among Latinos, heading into the final weeks of the presidential election, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo poll.

    Sixty-seven percent of Latino likely voters back Clinton in a four-way matchup, while just 17 percent back Trump, the polls shows. Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein each garner three percent support. Meanwhile, in a head-to-head matchup, Clinton leads Trump among Latino likely voters, 70 percent to 17 percent.

    According to the new poll, conducted Oct. 10-13 among 300 Latino voters, more Latinos say they they're very interested in the November contest. Sixty-nine percent of Latino voters now say they are very interested in the election, compared to 60 percent who said the same last month.

    Two Milwaukee men have been charged with attempting to provide support to the terrorist group ISIS, the U.S. Department of Justice announced Friday. Jason Michael Ludke, 35, has been charged with attempting to provide material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization. Yosvany Padilla-Conde, 30, was charged with aiding and abetting Ludke's attempt.
    The Justice Department says the two men were arrested by the FBI and local law enforcement near San Angelo, Texas. They were allegedly trying to travel to Mexico, where they hoped to gather "aid and documents" necessary to travel to Syria and/or Iraq. Read more from TMJ4.com here.

    The Vallejo Police Department on Monday identified the man who pointed an assault weapon at two officers on a coffee break late Sunday at a Starbucks, prompting them to open fire on him to protect themselves.

    Vallejo Police Chief Andrew Bidou said at a Monday morning press conference that 41-year-old Adam Powell of Suisin "attempted to assassinate" the officers before they shot him.

    "The suspect drove by Starbucks approximately six minutes before this confrontation and so we presume that this was a premeditated ambush on our officers," Bidou said. Police described Powell's weapon as having a high capacity drum magazine, with 70 rounds of high-powered ammunition.

    Powell is currently in a stable but critical condition at a local hospital.

    Bidou said Powell is the father of a 2-year-old boy shot inside a home in Suisun City on Sunday who is currently in a critical condition at a regional trauma center. Police have identified Powell as a person of interest in the shooting which took place in the 1000 block of Canary Court. An initial investigation shows the shooting was accidental. Investigators were unable to locate a weapon in Suisun City.

    Powell, who was convicted for robbery and drug offenses, was dressed in soft body armor and had an additional weapon on him.

    Vallejo police said the two officers were inside the coffee shop at 199 Lincoln Rd. West around 8:50 p.m., when they saw a man open the door and point an assault style weapon with a high capacity drum magazine at them.

    The "suspect appeared to be attempting to manipulate the gun as if it had malfunctioned," Vallejo police said.

    A dispatch recording of the brief and tense standoff recorded someone saying, "There's a man with a rifle just trying to ambush us at Starbucks."

    At that point, the two officers drew their weapons to protect themselves. The suspect took off through the parking lot, fleeing west on Magazine Street. The officers ran after the suspect and caught up with him near the intersection of Magazine and Sheridan Streets as he continued to manipulate the weapon.

    Vallejo police said the suspect "presented himself as a lethal threat to the officers" who shot him three times. The suspect fell to the ground and was taken into custody. He was transported to a local hospital and was being treated for life-threatening injuries.

    "There is little doubt that if it were not for the decisive action of our two officers that today's story would be much different," Vallejo police said.

    A nearby witness says she heard more than three shots fired. "We heard seven shots, like a clip, a large caliber clip," Susan Carter said.

    The officers involved in the shooting were not injured. The Vallejo Police Department is investigating the incident along with the Solano County District Attorney's Office.

    Vallejo residents posted videos to social media which showed heavy police presence on Magazine street, including at least 10 police cars.

    Citizens can provide information to the Vallejo PD at (800)-488-9383. Citizens can also provide information anonymously to the Solano Crime Stoppers™ tip line 707-644-STOP. Solano Crime Stoppers™ offers cash rewards for phone tips that solve violent and/or serious crimes.

    An early morning call of a possible kidnapping in South Florida turned out to be something totally different — with police surprised at who they found behind the wheel.

    Hollywood police said they received a call around 6:30 a.m. from a woman saying she feared her 11-year-old daughter had been kidnapped. The girl had borrowed her mother’s car keys to get a school book out of the car, but still hadn’t come back inside moments later, the mother said, when the car was missing.

    A search began for the car, which was spotted near the intersection of University Drive and Stirling Road — with the young girl driving it, police said. Officers continued to follow the vehicle until it crashed near Weston Road and State Road 84, over 10 miles away.

    The girl plowed into a BMW, causing some damage, according to police. The driver of that car, Richard Champagne, was surprised to learn who was behind the wheel. He said the 11-year-old drove in the wrong direction toward his car. 

    "She would've been killed by ongoing traffic. My car is crashed. I'm not feeling well. I have to get checked out at the hospital," Champagne said. 

    The child, who police have not named, was taken to an area hospital as a precaution. Investigators say she will be charged with aggrevated fleeing police and driving without a license.

    The people arriving at the United States' southern border are no longer Mexican migrants, mostly men, in search of jobs, but a steady stream of asylum-seekers, NBC News reports.

    The Obama administration said Monday that the prevailing view of the border is outdated, and that more Central Americans were seized along the border than Mexicans in fiscal year 2016, only the second year that's happened.

    And that demographic puts a unique strain on the immigration system, since many are asylum seekers whom border agents can't simply turn them or deport.

    "Walls alone cannot prevent illegal migration," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement Monday. "Ultimately, the solution is long-term investment in Central America to address the underlying push factors in the region."

    As Donald Trump becomes more controversial, Democrats have sought a way to use him as a weapon, NBC News reported.

    Hillary Clinton's campaign is attempting to drive a wedge between Trump as the GOP standard bearer and at the same time Democrats in down ballot races have been more interested in chaining the unpopular Trump to their Republican opponents.

    Now, with Trump underwater in almost every poll and Republicans retreating from him, Clinton's campaign and its surrogates are aligning their own message with that of down-ballot Democrats.

    An upstate New York man apparently high on hallucinogens broke into his neighbor's home to save their dog from what he thought was a burning home, police say.

    There was no fire, state police told WNYT-TV. The man had consumed LSD and cough medicine and thought his neighbor's home in Saratoga County was being consumed by flames last Thursday. 

    He went around his Halfmoon neighborhood banging on doors and yelling about a fire, WNYT reported. When no one would help, he drove his black BMW sedan through his neighbor's fence, went to the back door and smashed through it to retrieve the dog. 

    He emerged triumphantly with the large white dog, and responding officers found him standing outside the home with the dog in his arms, police said.

    "He believed that the residence was on fire and he was rescuing the dog," State Police Troop G spokesman Mark Cepiel said. 

    The man, 43-year-old Michael Orchard, was arrested on charges of burglary and criminal mischief. He was jailed on $15,000 bail.

    The number of visitors to Donald Trump-branded properties dropped in September by more than 16 percent compared to the same month last year, CNBC reports.

    That drop follows a 7.1 percent year-over-year decline in August as well as significant dips in July and June. This is according to an analysis by Foursquare, which looked at visits to Trump hotels, casinos and golf courses from its more than 50 million users. 

    The slide appears to coincide with Trump’s increasingly controversial presidential run, leading some to speculate that the latter is negatively effecting the former. The GOP presidential candidate’s privately held company the Trump Organization doesn’t release sales numbers and hasn’t commented on Foursquare’s analysis, meaning that these stats don’t tell the whole story.

    Furthermore, the numbers have yet to reflect changes in the month of October, during which Trump’s rhetoric has escalated dramatically, alienating many of his supporters, and multiple women have come forward to report instances in which they were touched or treated inappropriately by Trump in the past.

    A South Carolina mother braved through rain, wind and floodwaters to get to the hospital in time for her delivery during Hurricane Matthew, NBC affiliate WCBD reported

    Lestlis Matthews got to take home her son Friday after she went into labor during Hurricane Matthew. 

    When she called paramedics, they warned her there would be a delay because of the rising floodwaters. 

    Not willing to risk the wait, Matthews got up and started walking to the hospital on her own.

    "Walking through the water was fine," she said. "Any mother will go through extraordinary measures to make sure that their child is safe, and I had to do what I had to do."

    A driver picked her up after she had walked nearly five blocks.

    Matthews said she was born two days before Hurricane Hugo. 

    "I'm a survivor, going to be all right," Matthews said.

    Brady Treu, 7, is fighting a series of tumors but that didn’t stop him from taking on the dark side of the force.

    On Saturday, Little Brady used his very own light saber and his "force powers" to vanquish Darth Vader and his bad-guy buddies and saved South Florida in the process. The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted the West Palm Beach boy his Jedi dream.

    The 7-year-old said all the fun made him feel all warm inside.

    "I felt special," Treu said.

    His family added that defeating Darth Vader is all he's ever talked about.

    Brady even got his own Twitter hashtag, "#jedibradysaveswpb."

    Syrian opposition activists are circulating a video that appears to show a boy dangling from a building in Aleppo as rescuers try and save him, NBC News reported.

    The boy seems to be secured only by his legs, which were wedged in the rubble of the partially pancaked structure in Aleppo's Qaterji neighborhood.

    At first it is not clear if he has survived the attack, but his head is seen moving in response to shouts and rescuers below and the glare of their torches.

    Crews move a cherry-picker into position and slide a ladder under the boy, who is eventually freed from the rubble to jubilant shouts of "allahu akbar" — meaning "God is great" in Arabic.

    It's a love story for the ages.

    Laurie McGrath left part of her heart in Ireland 26 years ago. On a trip with friends in 1990, she buried half of the necklace her then-boyfriend Bill McGrath gave to her.

    "'You break it in half,'" I said. "'You wear one half and bury the other half in Ireland and we'll go dig it up someday,'" said Bill McGrath, Laurie's now husband.

    Four kids and four grandkids later, that day finally came.

    For their 25th wedding anniversary, the couple returned together to a cemetery in Castletownroche. Using pictures as their guide, they looked for the necklace.

    The love letter Laurie wrote more than two decades ago might have been destroyed, but inside a plastic bag was the half of a necklace. The symbol of the young love between Bill and Laurie still shining bright 26 years later.

    "It's got to be here because we took two days in that spot just to make sure we were going to find it. We would've dug everything will cemetery," Bill McGrath said about search.

    "We found it in 45 minutes," Laurie McGrath laughed.

    All these years later the couple shares a love stronger than ever.

    "Too much in love still after all these years," Bill McGrath said.

    As for the other half of Laurie's necklace, it is hidden somewhere in her house for safe keeping. She said her next quest with Bill is to find it and make the necklace whole again.

    A woman is asking for help returning a camera memory card filled with priceless wedding and family photos to its rightful owners after finding the chip on a street near the World Trade Center.

    Tammy Tozer and her husband were walking in the Financial District on Oct. 14 when they came across the SD card, Tozer told NBC 4 New York. 

    The couple visiting from Cape May County had stopped a couple blocks away from the One World Trade Center to watch a fire truck pull out of the station. Tozer's husband spotted the SD card as they crossed the street and she ran back to pick it up for safekeeping.

    When they got home, Tozer checked the card, which turned out to be full of wedding and family vacation photos. She searched the SD card’s properties hoping to find names, but couldn’t find anything identifying the owners.

    Tozer turned to NBC 4 New York for help, hoping to reunite the rightful owners with their treasured memories.

    If you believe you know the owners of these photos, please contact tips@nbcnewyork.com.

    A first date led to an arrest two months later after a woman used the man’s credit card without his knowledge to charge hundreds of dollars for a gift card, according to police. 

    The victim and 27-year-old Katherine Stonick, of New Haven, had dinner at Finalmente Trattoria, on Post Road East in Westport, on Aug. 17 and he met with police on Aug. 23 after realizing she stole from him, according to police. 

    The victim told police he was on a first date with a woman named “Sophie,” who police later identified as Katherine Stonick.

    After the victim paid for the meal, Stonick excused herself from the table to use the restroom and asked the manager to charge $300 to the victim’s credit card for a gift card, according to police, but the victim had no idea. 

    Stonick then went back to the restaurant on Aug. 18 and Aug. 19 and used the gift card, police said. 

    The victim gave police Stonick’s license plate number and they identified her from a photograph lineup, police said. 

    Police then obtained a warrant charging Stonick with sixth-degree larceny and illegal use of a credit card. 

    She turned herself in to police on Oct. 14 and was released after posting the $10,000 bond. She is due in court on Oct. 26.

    It's not clear if she has an attorney.

    At $600 for two, no one wants to have to throw away their EpiPens because they got left in the car or elsewhere. The manufacturer says they should be kept at room temperature, so that's why a Seattle mom and dad decided to create something that could allow an active lifestyle without the worry. "When we go outside with her son, when we are camping, when we are skiing, I want to know that his EpiPen is going to work," said Sandy Wengreen, inventor of the EpiShell, a patented case that protects EpiPens from hot and cold temperatures so anyone can take their EpiPen on the go - even if it's colder than 59 degrees or hotter than 86 degrees.

    McCormick & Company is recalling a specific brand of its taco seasoning because some dairy-free bottles were inadvertently filled with a product containing whey, which can cause severe reactions in people allergic to milk. 

    The company said it is pulling 24 oz. Club Size Original Taco Seasoning Mix with best buy dates of June 27, 2018 and Sept. 16, 2018. The products were shipped to stores nationwide. 

    McCormick said it has received one report of an allergic reaction related to the product covered by the recall. In sensitive individuals, an allergic reaction to milk can cause hives, stomach upset, vomiting and in very rare cases, anaphylaxis, a rapid onset allergic reaction that can be fatal. 

    McCormick has told grocery outlets to remove the affected product from store shelves and distribution centers immediately, and to destroy it in a manner that would prevent further consumption. 

    Consumers do not need to return the product to the store where it was purchased. Instead, consumers are urged to throw it out and call McCormick Consumer Affairs at 1-800-632-5847, weekdays from 9:30 AM to 7:00 PM (Eastern Time), for a replacement or full refund.

    The Nobel Academy can't seem to find Bob Dylan after he won the prize for literature, NBC News reported.

    The academy's permanent secretary, Sara Danius, said she had emailed and called Dylan's "closest collaborator" to ensure he gets his hefty award of $927,740, according to a translation published in The Guardian.

    So far, she said, she's received "very friendly replies," according to The Guardian — but Dylan is still nowhere to be found.
