- 10/19/18--11:38: Jamal Khashoggi Is The 28th Journalist Murdered This Year [Opinion]
A video of a Texas woman abandoning a 2-year-old on a doorstep recently went viral. It has now emerged that the woman actually did not leave her child on a random doorstep, but that there seems to be at least some reasoning behind her negligence. It can now be confirmed that she had left the child at the door belonging to the neighbor of his father. Whether she intentionally left the 2-year-old on the neighbor’s porch — or whether it was simple mistake on the part of the woman — remains to be seen.
According to ABC 13 Eyewitness News, the boy’s name is Royal Prince Simmons — and his father lived next door to the house where he was abandoned. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office stated that the boy’s father was found approximately 12 hours after the woman left Royal on the wrong porch of the 30700 block of Legends Drive on Wednesday evening.
There has been a lot of confusion and mystery regarding the disappearance and reported murder of Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi in which he was allegedly tortured while being dismembered alive. Many people around the world have wondered just what to believe when it comes to the news coming out of Saudi Arabia, and now, numerous op-eds are coming out and planting even more seeds for them to think about.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman for around 15 minutes on Tuesday to discuss the horrible situation, and it appears as if an interrogation gone wrong is to blame. In the words of President Donald Trump, the murder of Khashoggi was due to a group of “rogue killers.”
Most Americans should expect a mild winter this year, thanks to a developing El Niño system, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
As ABC News reports, government weather scientists at NOAA released their winter outlook today, and if you’re a fan of snow, ice, and brisk temperatures, this isn’t going to be your year. But if you want to save on heating bills, you’re in luck.
That’s because a developing El Niño system is brewing in the Pacific Ocean. The semi-regular warming of the waters off the coast of Central and South America wreaks havoc on weather systems in this hemisphere, and that means a mild, if wet, winter is in store for most of the U.S.
Fortunately, according to Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, this year’s El Niño is expected to be weak, so don’t expect anything too extreme one way or the other.
A dog that a couple from Aurora, Colorado, allegedly had sexual relations with was deemed unadoptable and was humanely euthanized on Tuesday, October 16.
Bubba, an Akita mix, had been turned over to animal control in July, four months after his owner and the owner’s girlfriend were arrested on charges of animal cruelty, according to the Denver Post. However, the hound displayed increasingly aggressive behavior while being cared for at the Aurora Animal Shelter, and manager Jenee Shipman came to the sad realization that Bubba would never be a suitable candidate for a “safe adoption.”
“The dog has exhibited unpredictable behavior, and shows signs of aggression towards veterinary services staff, volunteers, community service workers, and staff members that the dog is not especially familiar with — staff who clean, feed, provide enrichment, and treats daily,” Shipman stated in a letter to the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
Michael Bryant, Aurora’s senior public information officer, confirmed that Bubba had been put to sleep.
President Trump selected the predominantly Democratic-leaning Missoula County to host his Montana rally on Thursday, October 18, and to say that he could see the dissent he stood to face – from a mile away – wouldn’t be an understatement.
The resistance proved to quite literally present itself to the President before his Air Force One flight got a chance to touch down, with NBC reporting that one particular group of rebels had propped the words “LIAR” and “IMPEACH” on a pair of mountainsides. The gestures were a sign of things to come, as many supporters making their way to the “Make America Great Again” rally at Missoula International Airport inevitably crossed paths with protesters who had branched off from the “Love Trumps Hate” demonstration that took place at Missoula’s Playfair Park earlier in the day.
Battle Creek, Michigan’s Steve’s Pizza normally doesn’t deliver, but the restaurant made an exception for a dying man more than 200 miles away, over two decades after he and his family last lived in Battle Creek and counted themselves among the store’s loyal customers.
As recalled by the Battle Creek Enquirer, Rich and Julie Morgan of Indianapolis were Battle Creek residents over two decades ago, spending two years in the Michigan city and becoming fans of Steve’s Pizza, which Julie described as the “best” the family had ever tasted. Originally, the idea was to celebrate Julie’s 56th birthday in September by returning to Steve’s Pizza, but with Rich Morgan’s salivary gland cancer leaving him in the intensive care unit with only “days, [or] maybe weeks” to live, the couple’s plans changed, as they had no choice but to remain in Indianapolis.
Previously, the three methods of communicating with your Uber driver were SMS texting, in-app chat, and a traditional cell call. Yesterday at a conference in San Francisco, Uber added a fourth method of communication. You can now contact your Uber driver via a new in-app VoIP feature.
This is a win-win for everyone. We have all been in the car while an Uber driver was navigating busy traffic, trying to pay attention to mapping directions, and juggling a personal smartphone. That is not a comfortable scenario for anyone. Taking the cell phone out of the equation is a victory.
There is also the matter of privacy in both directions. Your driver doesn’t want you to have her personal contact information any more than you want your driver to have yours. Eliminating personal cell phones from the mix and keeping it all in-app is a win for privacy.
The Verge discusses another advantage.
Video footage of an incident that occurred three or four years ago in Namibia has just been released, showing a herd of elephants taking exception to a pair of hunters who had shot one of the bulls in the herd.
The hunt took place at the Nakabolelwa Conservancy in north-east Namibia, according to Daily Mail, with professional hunter Corne Kruger explaining the the hunting laws in the area.
“There is a small quota of elephants in the area and we only hunt two elephants a year.”
Unfortunately for the hunters, the elephants don’t care about this rule. The video clip below shows the men on the hunt, sneaking up behind a herd of elephants. At one point they realize they have been seen, and retreat slightly before getting back into position to shoot one of the animals. One of them can be heard saying “hit him between the eyes” before the shot is taken.
There is typically frustration on the behalf of the government and FEMA following a hurricane. Why? Because even with all the warnings and encouragement, some people still do not evacuate. According to NPR, the head of FEMA, Brock Long, said, “‘When we ask people at the local and state level to heed the warnings, dang it, do it! Get out!'”
But what if it is not that easy?
For starters, not all who need to evacuate can afford to do so. This fact is especially true for those who do not have family or friends that they can stay with and need to rely on a hotel. Evacuation expenses for cases such as these “can cost upward of $2,000.”
Crowd members roared with laughter and one made a threatening gesture to a CNN reporter after Donald Trump praised a physical attack on a journalist at a campaign rally in Montana this week.
Trump has drawn considerable controversy for the comments praising Republican Greg Gianforte, who was convicted earlier this year of an unprompted attack on a Guardian reporter. At the rally on Thursday, Trump joked about the attack and praised Gianforte for punching and body slamming a reporter who had asked him a question. As CNN‘s Jim Acosta reported, the statements went over very well with the crowd of Trump supporters.
“The disturbing part of Trump’s jokes about Gianforte was the effect on the crowd,” Acosta wrote on Twitter. “I saw one young man in the crowd making body slam gestures. He looked at me and ran his thumb across his throat. I talked to him after the rally was over. He couldn’t stop laughing.”
Students at a junior-senior high school in western Nebraska’s Potter-Dix district were secretly served kangaroo meat last week, the Omaha-World Herald reported.
The marsupial meat was purchased by head cook Kevin Frei and was mixed into beef chili for students to unknowingly consume. Frei told district superintendent Mike Williams that he added the secret ingredient “because of its nutritional value and because it is a very lean meat,” according to a letter issued to parents on Wednesday that has also been posted to Facebook, and also provided Williams with nutritional information for the meat. Frei has since been let go as an employee of Potter-Dix Public Schools, the Omaha World-Herald reported.
The superintendent wrote in the letter that unusual food or ingredients of school meals “should be listed on the menu so that the students and families are aware of what they would be served,” and stated that school was not the place for people to be trying “exotic foods.”
Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered inside the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, and Turkish investigators have now zeroed in on what they believe is the exact spot where the brutal murder and mutilation of the 60-year-old Saudi dissident took place, according to a Friday report by the Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak. Police probing the October 2 disappearance of the veteran reporter also say they have pinpointed two possible locations where Khashoggi’s dismembered body parts were distributed and buried.
As the Inquisitr reported on Thursday, Turkish investigators concluded that the Saudi death squad responsible for Khashoggi’s slaying may have dumped his body parts in the Belgrad Forest about 12 miles north of the city — after they used surveillance footage to track a mysterious black van that pulls out of the consulate parking lot on October 2.
Radar Online is reporting that 13-year-old missing girl Jayme Closs is believed to still be alive after her parents were found dead on October 15. The FBI has revealed to the press that someone shot and killed James Closs and Denise Closs of Barron, Wisconsin before kidnapping their daughter. According to CNN, a phone call was made around 1 a.m. on Monday morning with no one speaking on the other line, but a “disturbance” was heard in the background. Police arrived in less than four minutes, but by that point, Jayme and her captor were gone. No weapons were found at the scene of the crime and no cars were spotted in the area. The attacks were officially ruled a homicide.
“We believe Jayme was in the home at the time of the homicides and we believe she’s still in danger,” Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald was quoted as saying. He also noted that there is a “100 percent expectation that she’s alive.”
Zach Kincaid, the husband of Krystil Kincaid, who along with her unborn daughter was killed by a drunk driver, shared heartbreaking photos of the funeral of the two.
As People reports, back in September, Krystil, who was pregnant with unborn daughter Avalynn, was driving down a California highway when a drunk driver, going the wrong way down the highway, plowed head-on into Krystil’s vehicle.
“A drunk driver speeding down a two-lane highway at 85+ mph in the wrong lane around a blind corner destroyed my family.”
Zach was on the phone with Krystil when the accident occurred, and sources say that he heard his wife scream. When police arrived, part of the vehicle was on fire. Krystil was airlifted to a nearby hospital, and both she and the unborn baby were placed on life support. Unfortunately, they both died the next day.
The mystery surrounding the viral video of a woman leaving a toddler on a stranger’s doorstep in Texas has been solved.
When the footage was released, many believed that the boy — Royal Simmons — was abandoned by his mother. But People reports that the woman who abandoned the child was a friend of his mother’s who had been asked babysit. The friend was supposed to drop the boy off at his father’s, but left him in front of his father’s neighbor’s front door — presumably by accident.
“What if my neighbor wasn’t there?” the dad, Willie Simmons, said in an interview. “If my neighbor wasn’t there, my son would have been roaming up and down the street.”
According to People, in the video, you can see a woman pulling the boy to the front door along with two bags. She rings the doorbell and knocks before running back to her car and speeding off.
Jennifer Wagner — a female cyclist who lost a women’s world cycling championship to a transgender woman last weekend — said it was “definitely NOT fair” that she had to compete in a race against Rachel McKinnon, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman.
“I was the 3rd place rider. It’s definitely NOT fair,” Wagner wrote on Twitter in response to a post about the race.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, transgender female Rachel McKinnon won the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships for the women’s 35-39 age bracket in Los Angeles on October 14.
McKinnon — who represents Canada — beat out biological females Carolien Van Herrikhuyzen of the Netherlands and Jennifer Wagner of the United States.
McKinnon: It Doesn’t Matter If We Have Unfair Advantage
The subject of allowing biological males to compete against biological females in women’s sporting events is a hotly-contested topic.
Just when you thought that winning the Mega Millions jackpot would mean you’d never have to work another day, it gets even bigger and your entire family may never punch a clock again. After Tuesday’s drawing for overly huge pot, no one matched all the numbers and it just kept on growing. By early Friday afternoon, the jackpot had officially crossed the $1 billion mark and it’s time to make sure you have your tickets.
As reported by Spectrum News, the jump over the $1 billion mark happened just hours before Friday night’s drawing and it’s hard to believe that much is up for grabs. It is the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. history and lines to purchase tickets are beginning to grow.
It is the largest Mega Millions jackpot ever. The very largest U.S. lottery prize of all time was the $1.586 billion paid out in a Powerball drawing in 2016.
A Somali model who gained national attention for breaking barriers was banned from a Dunkin’ Donuts store and had police called on her — all because she spoke to her family in her native language.
The incident took place in a Portland, Maine, branch of the doughnut store this week. Hamdia Ahmed was in the drive-through and was waiting for someone to take her order when she spoke to a family member in their native language. As the 20-year-old told Maine Public Radio, the employee taking her order then started to yell at her.
“All of a sudden we just hear like, ‘Stop yelling. You’re yelling in my ears!'” Ahmed recalled. “And we were just like, ‘What the hell just happened? What is going on? When were we yelling? We’re having a conversation.'”
Dogs and humans have been best friends – in Europe and Asia, anyway – for about 9,000 years – according to new DNA research. And the arrival of the animals on the continent coincided with the advent of farming, BBC News reports.
Every domesticated dog, from the tiniest Chihuahua to the biggest Great Pyrenees and everything in between, evolved from wolves and similar canines. But while wolves have been around in Europe since well before H Sapiens got there, domesticated dogs have only been there for about 10 millennia. And researchers took a look at the DNA of living European canines and put together the story of how the domesticated dog wound up on the continent.
It was a couple of journalists who exposed Richard Nixon in the 1970s, journalists who learned the truth about the NSA in 2013, and journalists who shine a light on the dark side of the human condition in order to expose secrets obscured by corporate or governmental interests. And now, another journalist has been murdered for turning on that flashlight in a world that has grown very dark indeed.
Jamal Khashoggi’s name you know. But he is one more in a long line of journalists who died this year because they were trying to expose the truth. According to the Baltimore Sun, Gerald Fischman was gunned down on American soil in June of this year in the newsroom where he worked, along with Rob Hiassen, John McNamara and Wendi Winters. They all worked for Maryland’s Capital Gazette, and they were all shot and killed by a gunman who wanted them to stop writing. They did.
