Instead of the Queen of Soul’s singing face, the mural in Detroit’s East Market was covered in gobs of paint. Empty paint cans were scattered on the ground surrounding the mural. The original mural artwork was created by London-based artist Richard Wilson, who was at the mural site repairing the damages on Saturday, reports the Detroit Free Press.
Wilson said he created the piece for the annual Murals in the Market competition. He spent 12 days painting the colorful piece that displays a rack of albums featuring classic Detroit artists, including Franklin. His piece can be found on the back end of the Gratiot Central Market, near where Busy Bee Hardware was formerly located.
“I finished it yesterday evening… all happy,” he said. “I came back this morning just to tidy up a bit, check if there’s anything I missed or anything.”
Since his angry, defiant testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, as reported by the Inquisitr, media outlets have documented numerous false statements in his testimony, with some commentators such as Slate columnist William Saletan even saying flatly that Kavanaugh lied under oath to the committee, repeatedly.
“In plain terms, for all his spleen and outrage, Judge Kavanaugh lies about everything. In his earlier hearings, he lied about his judicial philosophy, and he lied about his days as a Republican operative, both in and out of the White House,” wrote Esquire’s Charles P. Pierce. “On Monday, he lied to Martha McCallum of Fox News. On Thursday, he lied about his entire adolescence and his college days. He lied even when he didn’t have to lie.”
On Saturday, Ryan Grim, the Intercept reporter who first broke the story of Christine Blasey Ford’s letter detailing her sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, noted yet another falsehood stated by Kavanaugh in his testimony.
Her adoptive father is a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army, but a judge still said that Hyebin Schreiber isn’t in the United States legally, reports USA Today. Schreiber was adopted by her parents, retired Army Lt. Col. Patrick Schreiber and his wife, Soo Jin, when she was 15.
Patrick met his wife, Soo Jin, when he was stationed in South Korea in 1995. Soo Jin is Hyebin’s biological aunt, as well as her adoptive mother. They brought Hyebin to the United States to live with them when she was 15. But now, a judge has ruled she must leave the country right after college graduation, due to a strange disparity between the laws of the state and federal immigration law regarding a child’s age at the time of their adoption.
Christin Blasey Ford, in her sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, named her high school friend Leland Ingham, now known as Leland Keyser, as one of the teenagers present at the small house party where she says Kavanaugh violently attacked her. But Keyser issued a statement through her lawyer that was cited by Kavanaugh in his Thursday testimony, as evidence that he could not have committed the assault, per a Washington Post transcript.
In her statement, that was also cited repeatedly by Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley, Keyser’s attorney, Howard Walsh, said the following.
“Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford,” according to CNN.
Mason Motz struggled with speech, and his parents helped him as best they knew with speech therapy, attention, and love. They were under the impression that Mason’s speech difficulties were due to his diagnosis of Sotos syndrome. Sotos syndrome has symptoms including a distinct facial appearance, delayed mental and motor skills, and overgrowth during childhood. But Tech Times reports that the Motz family was surprised after a recent visit to the dentist.
In November, 2017, his parents brought Mason to Dr. Amy Luedemann-Lazar. She is a dentist who specializes in working with children who have special needs. Mason was brought in simply to have some cavities treated. However, Dr. Luedemann-Lazar noticed something that other medical professionals had failed to realize. When Mason opened his mouth and she peered inside, she saw quite easily that he was tongue-tied.
The bombshell rape allegations that are being made against superstar athlete Cristiano Ronaldo will no doubt have far-reaching consequences that are still unseen. But for Kathryn Mayorga, there were plenty of reasons to stay silent for over nine years. Although the alleged rape occurred in 2009 with an out-of-court settlement reached in 2010, it took a long time before she was ready to go public with her claims.
According to Spiegel, Kathryn had several fears as she was preparing to go public with her claims. This is what she said.
“It’s a pretty famous guy. So I’m terrified. I’m scared. The reason why I signed the contract in the first place (was) because I didn’t want my name out there.”
A mentally ill man from Brooklyn, New York, has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder after allegedly throwing his 4-year-old brother off of the roof of their seven-story apartment building on Saturday, September 29.
According to the New York Daily News, 20-year-old Shawn Smith asked New York Police Department officers for help around 3:30 a.m. since he thought his little sibling, Shimron Smith, was hurt.
He then made a shocking confession to the cops.
“I just killed my brother — I took my brother up to the roof and I threw him off,” he allegedly said, reported the New York Post.
Smith then directed officers to his building’s concrete courtyard, and that is where they found the boy’s broken and lifeless body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The medical examiner’s office ruled Shimron’s death a homicide, saying that the innocent little boy died from “multiple blunt force injuries.”
A Pakistani bureaucrat was caught red-handed stealing the wallet of a member of a Kuwaiti delegation during the Pakistan-Kuwait Joint Ministerial Commission meeting.
Pakistan Today said that the suspect was identified as Investment and Facilitation Joint Secretary Zarar Haider Khan. The BS-20 officer was caught on CCTV swiping the wallet of a Kuwaiti diplomat after the meeting on Friday.
According to Dawn, a member of the visiting delegation complained to Pakistan officials that he lost his wallet containing a handsome amount of Kuwaiti dinar. This prompted a search of all rooms and offices in the Finance Ministry building.
Lower grade employees were questioned and frisked but the wallet remained missing. The CCTV camera installed at the hall, however, eventually revealed who committed the theft. The footage showed that the wallet was in the hands of a senior officer.
Kellyanne Conway, a top Donald Trump adviser who is best known for her frequent media appearances, revealed on Sunday in a CNN interview that she has been a victim of sexual assault.
She added, however, that despite that fact that her boss, Trump, has been accused of sexual assault or harassment by over a dozen women, according to The Washington Post— and as many as 22, by a Business Insider count — Conway says that she supports Trump and continues to work for him because “he’s so good to the women who work for him.”
She also accused opponents of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of “judging the victims…according to their politics,” according to The Hill.
In a Sunday morning interview with CNN anchor Jake Tapper, Conway seemed to lapse into a rare display of emotion as she revealed her history of being sexually assaulted, a rare example of Conway discussing any details of her personal life in public.
Bold and the Beautiful fans will always know Jacob Young as Rick Forrester, but the actor is set to launch his own YouTube series this week. Starting on Monday, October 1, Young will host a talk show called Daytime After Dark, according to Broadway World.
Young aims to be one of the first TV stars to launch and host his on talk show on YouTube. The actor has been on broadcast television since 1997, but feels that the future lies in digital streaming, hence the move to the more globally accessible platform.
The tragic case of 6-year old Maddox Ritch continues. The autistic child’s body was found about 20 miles west of the park, submerged in the creek. Maddox’s father reported him missing, saying that the child wandered off while they were at the park together along with his father’s girlfriend. Previously, park workers denied seeing Maddox in the park that day. But now, Fox News reports that a woman saw Maddox playing in the park as his father reported.
Brooke Sheppard was at Gastonia’s Rankin Lake Park with her mother for a church picnic on September 22, the day Maddox went missing. Maddox was diagnosed with autism and was non-verbal. Sheppard said they saw him skipping and jogging in the park.
“I can remember her [my mother] looking over and asking him ‘hey buddy are you tired?’ because he had just been skipping, jogging, being a kid,” Sheppard said.
The FBI has officially opened its investigation into sexual assault accusations against Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Investigators spoke on Sunday to Deborah Ramirez, a 53-year-old Boulder, Colorado, woman who told the New Yorker magazine last week that while they were students at Yale, Kavanaugh exposed himself to her and caused her to touch his genitalia.
According to a CNN report on Sunday, Ramirez spoke to FBI agents about the incident and also gave the investigators the names of witnesses who could also talk about what she says happened between Kavanaugh and Ramirez at Yale University in 1983. But whether the FBI agents would interview those witnesses remained unclear.
A report by NBC News on Saturday said that Trump had ordered the FBI to limit the scope of its investigation, and some witnesses would not be interviewed.
Trump on Saturday posted to Twitter denying the NBC report.
It seems hard to imagine that the bustling and bright Las Vegas strip could ever be dark and quiet, but that’s the plan for Monday, according to USA Today. Exactly one year ago today, a gunman’s rampage killed 58 people who were on the Strip that day having a good time and celebrating their love of country music. The open-air concert turned into a nightmare when the gunman — Stephen Paddock — started firing into the crowd at random from above.
The marquees along the Strip are scheduled to go dark on Monday at a specific time that evening. The event is one of many planned throughout the city in remembrance of the victims. The shooting was the deadliest in American history, with 58 dead and 400 more wounded by bullets fired from the high-rise hotel room. Many more were injured trying to flee the scene. It was chaotic as the enormous crowd rushed to flee from bullets and the ensuing human stampede.
Police arrested a Florida man on Saturday for allegedly taking a high-powered pellet-rifle with a scope and firing it at an 8-month-old puppy that was being walked by its owners. The dog, whose name is Princess, died after being shot by the suspect. Fox News reports that police said that the 19-year-old man, Johansen Concepcion De La Ros, fired on the animal from the second floor balcony of his apartment.
The Davie Police Department wrote about the callous incident in a Facebook post, and they said that De La Ros is facing a charge of felony cruelty to animals for his actions. Police said that the incident happened at approximately 6:30 p.m. when Princess was walked by her owners on a “trail in the 2800 block of Southwest 73rd Way.”
Funeral plans for Maddox Ritch, the 6-year-old boy with autism who was found dead after a five-day search following his disappearance from a North Carolina park have been announced.
“Maddox was a sweet and loving little boy who was full of laughter,” his obituary reads. “He loved Paw Patrol, his Teddy, playing with his bouncy balls, but above all he loved his mom and dad the most.”
According to his obituary, a visitation will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, October 4, at the Raymer-Kepner Funeral Home in Huntersville, North Carolina. His funeral service will take place at 11 a.m. the following day in the chapel of the funeral home. The burial will be a private service for immediate friends and family members only.
Maddox’s memory will continue to live in the minds of his loving parents, Carrie and Ian, his grandparents, Lynn Ritch and Freddie, and Elaine and Joseph Paccione, and several aunts, uncles, and extended family members.
Recently, a bill was signed by the Governor of California which granted judges the authority to settle pet custody disagreements similarly to the way that they handle child custody disputes. The law may be the first of its kind, revealing a lot about how the role of the family pet has changed over time.
According to Snopes, Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill. The law will take effect on January 1, 2019. Prior to the bill’s signing, pets were treated as property — likened to material goods such as TV’s or other inanimate objects — in California divorce courts. Now, however, judges will have to decide upon the ownership of a pet in the same way as they do when determining the custody of a child.
Megan Green, a family law attorney in Los Angeles, has witnessed cases where couples who have split fight over the custody of their pet. Green believes the bill is a positive step forward.
We all have heard how engrossed and excited scientists get when they discover something new. Whether they are carrying out experiments in a laboratory, studying different objects in space, or discovering a new animal in the oceans, becoming oblivious to the surroundings while doing their work is a normal practice.
But as much as it’s extremely important to remain focused on one’s work, looking up and glancing around every once in a while is not a bad idea, especially when there could be potential dangers in the surroundings.
Sometimes, however, the excitement of successfully completing an experiment or discovering a new species in the ocean can surpass everything else. This is exactly what happened to two ichthyologists from the California Academy of Sciences, Luiz Rocha and Hudson Pinheiro, who dived into the Atlantic Ocean to explore the coral reef systems.
Sarah Palin’s oldest child, 29-year-old Track Palin, has been arrested on charges of domestic violence for the third time in less than three years. The Washington Post reported on Sunday that police were called to a home located in Wasilla, Alaska, about 11:30 p.m. on Friday night. Upon arriving, officers found an unidentified female acquaintance that Palin had attacked. They also learned that he had taken the woman’s phone when she tried to call the police to report the incident.
Palin fought police as they attempted to arrest him. Charges against Palin include fourth-degree assault, interfering with the reporting of a domestic violence crime, resisting arrest by force, and disorderly conduct.
At least two bystanders — who watched as the murder of Louisiana State University student basketball player Wayde Sims unfolded — were able to capture the incident in recordings that have since been aired by national news outlets in addition to having gone viral on social media.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Sims was shot dead outside of a Subway restaurant near the campus of Baton Rouge’s Southern University early Friday morning, September 28. The 20-year-old junior forward had reportedly been involved in a violent altercation involving more than a half-dozen men when a single shot was fired at his head.
When shopping for bargains, it is occasionally necessary for avid bargain shoppers to make some sacrifices in the name of the deal. But when Vera Walker ordered some Dr. Seuss books on sale for her granddaughter 20 years ago, she expected to have them in about 8 weeks, not 20 years later. She ordered the books for her four-year old granddaughter when she spotted the ad in a catalog. The books were Cash on Delivery, and a price that seemed good to Walker, who wanted to surprise her granddaughter.
WCVB reports on this incredible story of a long-awaited special delivery. Walker ordered the books for her young granddaughter, then waited. And she kept on waiting and waiting – well past the the end of 1998, when she ordered the books. Her granddaughter was just starting school at the time, and Walker was excited to read her the classic children’s stories.
