After 19 years in prison, former Carolina Panther Rae Carruth is being freed from prison, WSOCTV is reporting. Carruth was sentenced to jail after allegedly helping to plan the murder of his pregnant girlfriend, Cherica Adams. Carruth denied his involvement in her death, but two other men sentenced for the death testified that Carruth had specifically hired them to kill her.
Adams was shot four times while driving on November 4, 1999. She managed to tell a 911 operator that she spotted her boyfriend, Carruth, in the car in front of her. She ended up passing away four weeks later. Fortunately, her baby survived. The baby, Chancellor Lee, is now no longer a baby — he’s almost 19-years-old. He is still cared for by his grandmother, Saundra Adams.
The word from everyone willing to go on record about the Bloomberg spy chip story is that it didn’t happen. Now, we can add Apple CEO, Tim Cook to the list. In a call with BuzzFeed News, Tim Cook left little doubt.
“There is no truth in their story about Apple. They need to do that right thing and retract it.”
People trying to give Bloomberg the benefit of the doubt have looked for opportunities to parse the denials from the companies on record. They have been given little to work with. In a statement made earlier this month, Apple spokespeople made it clear that they were not under any type of government gag order.
When asked if such a thing could have happened without his knowing, Tim Cook made the most emphatic statement that could reasonably be made. “The likelihood of that is virtually zero.”
For only the second time in history, a lottery jackpot — in this case, the Mega Millions jackpot — is now over a billion dollars in payout. And while even a fraction of that money would be life-changing for just about anyone reading this article, that kind of cash doesn’t necessarily mean that anything and everything is within reach.
For starters, no one is going to win a billion dollars all at once — that’s not how lotteries work. Even if we exclude the very real possibility that the billion-dollar jackpot is split among multiple winners, a single winner isn’t getting a billion. Far from it.
Chaos unfolded when the caravan of immigrants from Honduras reached the Guatemala-Mexico border on Friday, CNN reports.
A large group of people broke through a steel fence protecting the border. Mexican police, in full riot gear, rushed forward to stop them. Smoke canisters erupted all around as police forcibly tried to push them back over the border. Drones and helicopters buzzed overhead.
Another group tried to cross a bridge, but found themselves stopped by a gate. Here, police unleashed pepper spray on those trying to get through. People stuck on the bridge jumped, landing in the Suchiate River below, prepared to swim their way to another country, or die trying.
It was chaos.
A California elementary school principal apologized this week after she sent out an email earlier warning parents about a black male who allegedly stared at and followed a young girl in a Starbucks, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Donna Tripi, of La Jolla Elementary School, explained that in hindsight, she believed the email unintentionally perpetuated a stereotype about African-American males. The school will conduct a forum next week on how to “support all families” at the school, Tripi said, per the newspaper.
The controversy started last month when Tripi sent out an email to parents describing an unknown male who appeared to stare and follow the girl into the coffee establishment, the Union-Tribune wrote.
The person question was described as “an African-American male about 30 years old, about 6’1″-6’2″ dressed in all black and a hooded sweatshirt,” the newspaper noted. The email added security tips and urged them to call the police “if you see something that doesn’t feel right.”
The Mega Millions winning numbers for October 19 will soon be in, and America could have its newest billionaire.
The multi-state lottery shot up to more than $1 billion after no one matched all the numbers for Tuesday’s $642 million drawing, shooting the prize up to the second-largest in lottery history. Friday’s drawing saw a rush of ticket-buyers nationwide, all with the hope of beating the impossibly long odds and winning the jackpot (the winning Mega Millions numbers for October 19 along with a full list of payouts can be found below).
As CNN reported, there is a pool of nearly $1.5 billion waiting between Mega Millions and the other multi-state lottery, Powerball, which has reached its own $470 million jackpot.
If anyone is lucky enough to match all of the Mega Millions winning numbers on Friday, they would automatically be vaulted to a stratosphere of wealth that very, very few occupy.
Did anyone win the $1 billion Mega Millions jackpot?
Friday’s drawing was the second-largest lottery prize in American history, topped only by a $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot in early 2016, and has generated a rush of interest across the nation. After Friday’s drawing, many took to the internet to find out if anyone happened to win the prize, even if they didn’t.
They will be in luck — no one won, so they’ll have a chance to try again on Tuesday for a prize expected to reach $1.6 billion.
As Business Insider noted, that might be a good thing for America’s newest billionaire, who will have a few more days to think about their exit strategy for coming forward.
The report noted that lottery winners will come under almost immediate scrutiny, especially for a prize so enormous.
“Once you’re announced as the winner, the sharks will start circling,” financial planner Kristen Euretig told the business magazine.
Donald Trump has been screaming about the wave of immigrants trying to get into the U.S. from Honduras. They’ve been on the move for days, and as of Friday evening, they are stopped at the Guatemala-Mexico border.
Trump has threatened military action and more against the caravan, which has swelled to more than 4,000 people. Mexico is putting up strong resistance to the caravan, and used police force on Friday to successfully stop a large group from entering the country. Some jumped into the river in a desperate bid to get across the border or get away from police pepper spray.
Trump has raged against the caravan on Twitter, and threatened to cancel a proposed trade deal with Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. if Mexico does not secure their southern border, according to the Washington Times.
From about 6 p.m. to 7:20 p.m. ET on Tuesday, YouTube was down, and it made everybody freak out. YouTube’s CEO, Susan Wojcicki, apologized for the outage. But she didn’t explain it, according to Business Insider.
“Never seen YouTube down for 30+ minutes like this before,” said Marques Brownlee, a well-known YouTuber.
According to Twitter feedback, the outage was global, according to the Daily Mail.

As you know by now, YouTube is back up and social media is back to normal and all is right with the world. The outage was unusually long, and it was never explained.
Recently, the Inquisitr reported on an incident at J. Iverson Riddle Development Center in Morganton, North Carolina, being investigated by state officials. On Wednesday, the News Herald produced an update about certain details of the investigation and allegations against the eight employees accused of operating what is being called a “fight club” at Elm Cottage. According to one representative and guardian, a resident inside the center was trained to strike out at people on command by staff members inside the cottage.
The state may not be talking about the allegations in total, but details are beginning to leak out concerning the events which allegedly took place inside Elm Cottage. According to the representative, the individual instructed by staff to hit upon command was a nonverbal person with severe autism. What’s more, it was also stated that staff members have been accused of twisting wet towels and slapping at the walls and residents with them.
Donald Trump told reporters on Friday that he believes Saudi Arabia’s explanation for what happened to American-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi. He’s just about the only person who does.
Jamal Khashoggi was living in America, but traveled to the Saudi consulate on October 2. Khashoggi, a journalist, has been critical of the Saudi royal family in the past, and was living in self-imposed exile after being threatened.
On October 19, 17 days after Khashoggi disappeared inside the consulate and after Turkey has released multiple reports that the journalist was killed in the building, Saudi Arabia released a statement. Their story is that Khashoggi, a man in his 70s, engaged in a fight with several other men when he entered the consulate and died as a result.
And Donald Trump believes this story — or at least, that’s what he’s telling the media, according to CNN.
Karen Attiah, the global opinions editor at the Washington Post, has been one of the voices leading the charge for justice in Jamal Khashoggi’s name — and the frustration she’s been enveloped by while carrying that role flashed the inevitable on Friday, October 19, when it spilled over on her Twitter page.
The glimpse that a recent New York Times exclusive gave into the relationship that Attiah had built with Khashoggi, prior to his death, provides insight into why she’s been fighting so passionately for answers. The 32-year-old Nigerian-Ghanaian Texas native got to manage the platform of a man who she considered to be one of the world’s most important writers in Khashoggi, and to her determination, the parties probing the circumstances of his murder are doing everything in their power to cover-up their alleged involvement.
Florida teacher Stephanie Peterson has pleaded guilty to having sex repeatedly with a 14-year-old male student and sending him nude pictures of herself through social media, according to People.
The 27-year-old teacher, who is married, was first accused of sleeping with the 14-year-old by the boy’s parents after he reportedly confided in them about their “relationship” which had started in November of last year.
President Donald Trump on Friday claimed during a roundtable discussion in Arizona that a group of central-American migrants, comprising some “hardened criminals,” are headed toward the United States border.
“Some of these people are hard criminals. Hardened criminals — not good people,” President Trump said. “These are some bad people coming through. These aren’t babies, these aren’t little angels coming into our country.”
But when a reporter asked for evidence to support the claim, his answer was not a very professional one, as reported by The Hill.
“Oh please, don’t be a baby, okay? Take a look,” Trump said to Emily Cochrane a reporter with the New York Times. “Take a look, just take a look at what’s happened. Look at the Mexican soldiers that are laying on the ground.”
Eric Trump doesn’t seem to quite know when to pick his words.
On the same night when his father Donald Trump heaped praise on GOP congressman Greg Gianforte for body-slamming The Guardian journalist Ben Jacobs for asking him a question about healthcare, Eric Trump appeared on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle bemoaning the “lack of civility” on display by the political left.
“The lack of civility, I talk about it all the time. It’s unbelievable. I saw that earlier today and, listen, that helps. Honestly, those people are so radical no-one can relate to them.”
Specifically, Eric Trump was talking about a video clip which showed a Texan man tearing down Ted Cruz’s posters. Blaming the left for having “radicalized” to an “extreme,” Trump’s second son appeared oblivious to the very words of violence being espoused by his president dad, as reported by Newsweek.
The Opa-locka Police Department has fired German Bosque six times for misdeeds which include misuse of police firearms, use of excessive force, stealing from suspects, and unauthorized police chases.
According to the Sun Sentinel, Bosque also faced accusations of domestic violence and stalking, as well as lying and falsifying police reports and defying direct order.
There was a time when he called in sick when he was actually on vacation in another country. A crack pipe, an empty vodka bottle, a baggie of cocaine, a counterfeit $20 bill and a stash of confiscated driver’s licenses were also discovered several times in his squad car.
He had three arrests. One occurred before he was a cop. The second time happened in Broward County, and the third time happened in 2013 for his alleged actions against a youth counselor. None of these resulted in a conviction.
The Mega Millions jackpot is boldly going where no other lottery jackpot has gone before after no winning tickets emerged from Friday’s night’s drawing.
Game officials announced the new jackpot of $1.6 billion – an all-time lottery record – which has a cash option of $905 million. Since the next Mega Millions drawing is not until Tuesday, that amount is likely to soar even more.
No ticket Friday matched the winning number of 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 with the Mega Ball 7. That would have just given that winner just the second highest jackpot in lottery history. The new jackpot has now doubled Mega Millions’ old jackpot high of $656 million in 2012.
The $1.6 billion tote tops the all-time record, set by Powerball in 2016 when three tickets shared a $1.586 billion prize.
Jamal Khashoggi, the Washington Post columnist who was brutally killed in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey, gave a secret last and wide-ranging interview to Newsweek’s Rula Jebreal. The transcript of the interview was unpublished up until yesterday when Newsweek reported about Khashoggi’s thinking on the reforms carried out by Saudi Arabian crown prince Mohammad Bin Salman, as well as on Khashoggi’s belief that the only important American political leader who was calling to put more pressure on Saudi Arabia was Bernie Sanders.
Khashoggi disappeared on October 2 when he went to collect some paperwork in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul. Soon, reports quoting Turkish investigators suggested that the Saudi Arabian administration had sent agents to brutalize and kill Khashoggi. The New York Times, citing an audio recording of the incident, reported that Khashoggi had been dismembered at the consulate, with one of Saudi Arabia’s most-known forensic experts leading the task to get rid of the body.
A worker at a Virginia pork processing plant urinated on the production line, causing 50,000 pounds of meat to be destroyed, WIS-TV (Columbia, South Carolina) is reporting.
Last week, security cameras caught a line worker removing his gloves, unzipping his pants, doing the deed underneath the equipment, then putting his gloves back on and returning to work. It is unclear, as of this writing, if he splashed any urine onto any meat or equipment.
Regardless, factory officials erred on the side of caution and shut down production. They then cleaned and sterilized all of the equipment in the employee’s vicinity several times. They also threw out all of the meat that was on the line at the time – 50,000 pounds of it, or about 150 hogs’ worth of pork. The incident is estimated to have cost the company $190,000.
In a statement, company spokesperson Lisa Martin said that Smithfield will take no chances when it comes to the safety of its product.
A video montage of Fox News panelists, pundits, and journalists spreading alarmist conspiracy theories is going viral on social media, Raw Story reports.
Put together by John Kerr of Media Matters – a non-profit media watchdog group – the video shows Fox News spreading, without evidence, theories that the Democratic Party is planning a coup, deliberately letting “hordes” of immigrants cross the border in an effort to overthrow the United States government.
“Democrats want to replace you, the American voters, with newly-amnestied citizens, and an ever-increasing number of chain migrants,” Laura Ingraham can be heard alleging.
According to Tucker Carlson, the alleged Democratic plot is “about seizing power, and holding it.”
“While you were grilling in the backyard last night, they were plotting, in effect, a coup,” Tucker warns.
“Criminal illegal aliens coming in, it’s basically end the rule of law,” a Fox News guest can be heard saying.
