Flying is the fastest and safest way to travel and with millions of flights going out every day it seems as though terrifying incidents like the one on Southwest last week, are few and far between. Plane crashes and flight-related deaths are covered so heavily because they’re such a rarity however, there are times when one bad incident follows another and the passengers of Air India flight 462 flying from Amritsar to Delhi experienced this first hand.
As air travelers were settling into their flight on Thursday, all still recovering from the tragedy of the events of the Southwest flight, turbulence rocked the plane. As uncomfortable as it feels, turbulence is such a common occurrence no one paid any mind to it until the intense shaking and rocking of the cabin caused a window to break.
In 2011, a crested black macaque monkey took a selfie with a British photographer’s camera in Sulawesi, Indonesia. The amazing photo went viral and made the rounds on social media. The photographer, David Slater, published the photo in a book called “Wildlife Personalities” in 2014. That would have been the end of the story, but People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals intervened, bringing a case against Slater.
According to SF Gate, the organization named the monkey “Naruto,” and said that the monkey should have legal ownership of his own creative work. It claimed that the monkey “shouldn’t be treated any differently than any other photographer just because he doesn’t happen to be human.”
Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, has challenged the Fox News host to an on-air “Face-Off,” Newsweek is reporting.
The two men apparently don’t see eye to eye on Hannity’s relationship with the man with whom they’ve both had dealings in the past: Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen. Cohen issued a payment of $130,000 in “hush money” to Daniels (real name: Stephanie Clifford), and Avenatti represents Daniels. Cohen is also an alleged lawyer for Hannity – something that Hannity has not mentioned. In fact, it was only revealed in the course of legal proceedings after Cohen’s office was raided by the FBI.
A 5-year-old Michigan boy says that his preschool teacher taped his mouth shut and threw his lunch away, all the while laughing about it, Yahoo News is reporting. The alleged crime was seen by a witness, who called the police.
Back in March, Abdul Dannaoui was attending preschool at Great Start Readiness at Cherry Hill Baptist Church. The Crestwood School District, like many school districts and across the country, contracts with local private preschool centers in order to provide publicly-funded preschool education to kids such as Abdul.
What happened that day remains unclear. According to WXYZ-TV (Detroit), Abdul, who has asthma, was denied his lunch, for reasons that remain unclear. What’s more, says Abdul, a teacher taped his mouth shut.
“She put the scotch tape on my mouth.”
Abdul says that the teacher threw away his lunch, and similarly denied him food at snack time.
“They said don’t tell your mom or dad, or no one.”
A man identified as Alek Minassian has been arrested as the suspect in the Toronto van attack that has left 10 people dead and others injured. Minassian is due in court this morning reportedly to be formally charged for crimes related to intentionally driving a white Ryder van onto the sidewalk and hitting “everything in his path” for approximately a half mile within the Toronto city limits. Alek Minassian was officially charged with 10 counts of murder this morning.
What Is Known So Far About Alek Minassian
The story is developing, but here is what is known about suspected Toronto van crash driver Alek Minassian at this point, according to Heavy. Alek Minassian, 25, is a student at Seneca College in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, according to his LinkedIn page, and a report from CNN said that Minassian is known to Canadian law enforcement.
As a group of about 500 migrants from Central America quickly approach the U.S. border, President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have sent stern warnings to the caravan. Although it’s legal to seek asylum, it’s illegal to cross into the country without going through the asylum process.
As reported by NBC News, Sessions pointed out that Mexico was going to allow the migrants to stay in their country, but that they declined the offer to continue their journey north. He then made a statement regarding the asylum process.
“Let today’s message be clear: Our nation has the most generous immigration system in the world, but this is a deliberate attempt to undermine our laws and overwhelm our system. There is no right to demand entry without justification. Smugglers and traffickers and those who lie or commit fraud will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
The man suspected of shooting and killing four innocent victims and wounding countless others at a Waffle House just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, has been denied the chance to post bail following his arrest.
According to WSMV, a local Nashville station, 29-year-old Travis Reinking’s $2 million bond has been revoked by a judge. A few hours after his arrest yesterday, a court magistrate originally set Reinking’s bond at $2 million around. But the Tennesseanshares that the public was upset over the fact that Reinking was even granted the chance to post bond, causing the judge to change his mind. Judge Michael Mondelli decided to revoke Reinking’s bond early Tuesday morning.
A Florida teen created a poster — that is being described as racist — to ask his girlfriend to the prom, and now the school district may discipline him over the promposal.
Noah Crowley created a sign that said, “If I was black, I’d be picking cotton, but I’m white, so I’m picking u 4 prom,” which caused outrage across the United States and beyond. Now, the Sarasota County school is reviewing the incident and deciding what action to take to ensure something like this never happens again, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Originally sent through Snapchat, a screenshot of the offensive request went viral on Twitter, prompting extreme backlash throughout social media.
On April 24, 1915, Ottoman authorities rounded up, arrested, and deported Armenian intellectuals, community leaders, and other luminaries from Constantinople (now Istanbul) and drove them into Ankara, Turkey. This action kicked off a series of events that, collectively, would become known as the Armenian Genocide and marked the first holocaust in modern history.
Let’s take a look at some of the facts we know, today, about this tragedy.
Every Year, Armenians All Over The World Gather To Commemorate The Armenian Genocide
This is true even to this day. According to KUTV, Utah Armenians came together today to commemorate the Armenian Genocide, which Utah recognizes as a “Day of Remembrance,” even though the United States doesn’t officially recognize the genocide.
A suicidal man in Detroit was saved by semis lining up underneath the interstate overpass that he was going to jump off of. In a world full of negative news, this kind of story is exactly what we need to see more of.
Michigan State Police and several semi drivers coordinated in the effort to keep the man from committing suicide. A photograph taken at the scene shows 13 semi-trucks lined up underneath the overpass blocking all the lanes underneath the man. Another aspect of the photo was the man, who was struggling with making a decision that would have ended his life.
Following the blocking of the jump, the man was talked off the ledge. The interstate was closed for hours as the situation unfolded.
Past homophobic content found on Joy Reid’s blog is back in the news. Joy Reid is the liberal pundit who hosts the political talk show AM Joy on MSNBC on weekends from 10 a.m. to noon Eastern, and enjoys a following among the anti-Trump #Resistance movement.
In December 2017, Reid issued a lengthy apology about unearthed blog posts that she wrote about Florida politician Charlie Crist, the ex-governor and current congressman, in which she apparently implied that he was a closeted gay man. Reid authored the material about 10 years ago when she was a Florida political blogger and talk show host.
Additional blog posts have now surfaced, Mediaite has reported, which Reid claims were not written by her, run counter to her belief system, and were fabricated to harm her reputation, in an exclusive statement provided to Mediaite.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed at a press conference this morning that presently they “have no reason to suspect that there is any national security element” to the van attack that occurred in northern Toronto on Monday. The suspect, Alek Minassian, allegedly drove a white Ryder for 11/2 miles while ramming into his victims. He faces 10 charges of first degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder, although the Toronto Police Service reports that he injured 15 people.
At a press conference in Ottawa, Trudeau stated that they are currently investigating the issue, but that Canada does not believe that the attack poses a threat to national security, according to ABC News. This view was also shared by Ralph Goodale, Canada’s public security minister, who stated that their investigations at the time showed that there seemed to be no link between Minassian and terrorism. According to Goodale, Minassian’s attack seems to be “deliberate” in nature.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) raised more money in one month – specifically, the month after the Parkland school shooting – than they normally raise in three, breaking a one-month fundraising record in the process, McClatchy DC Bureau is reporting.
March 2018 was the first full calendar month since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, left 17 people dead. According to publicly-available documents submitted to the Federal Elections Commission, during that month the gun-rights organization raised $2.4 million. That is the most the NRA has ever raised in one month; $1.5 million more than it raised in March 2017, when it took in $884,000; and around three times what it makes in donations in an average month.
In fact, it seems that school shootings tend to precede big fundraising months for the NRA. In January and February 2013, the months after the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, the NRA raised $1.1 million and $1.5 million, respectively.
A customer at Publix allegedly got angry with an employee for not responding to her quickly enough, and sucker-punched the woman in the back. The employee is deaf.
As The Raleigh News & Observerreports, Liberty Gratz has been working at the same Virginia Publix since it opened in 2017. As a disabled person – she is deaf and has vision loss – she is thrilled to have a job. And last week, Liberty was at work at her job, kneeling down to a low shelf so she could put merchandise on it, when a customer walked up behind her.
Apparently the woman was trying to ask Liberty for help, not knowing that Liberty is deaf. However, rather than do the right thing – find another employee, tap Liberty on the shoulder, or just about anything else – the customer allegedly took out her frustration in a more direct way: by socking the young woman from behind.
“All of a sudden, I felt some woman hit me in my back.”
As reported by the New York Times, Scott Pruitt, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, announced a new EPA regulation on Tuesday. Many scientists contend that the new EPA regulation will forever deteriorate the agency’s ability to protect public health. Under the new rule, the EPA will only allow scientific studies to be used if the primary data of the study is made public.
Because a great number of studies rely on private health information from study subjects, this would greatly limit the number of studies available for consideration. Studies, like the ones they used to examine the effects of city water (like in Flint, Michigan), would be thrown out if the data used has private information. This would also erase decades of scientific research from being used in future considerations.
Just one day after the birth of royal baby No. 3, Pippa Middleton fulfilled her auntly duties by paying a visit to the newest member of Prince William and Duchess Kate’s growing family.
As the Inquisitr reported yesterday, Kate gave birth to a healthy baby boy at 11:01 a.m. at St. Mary’s Hospital. The baby boy weighed in at a solid 8 pounds 7 ounces. Like his brother and sister, the unnamed baby was brought onto the steps of St. Mary’s Hospital to make his public debut. Prince George and Princess Charlotte also made an appearance at the hospital to greet their baby brother.
Too many shootings have been occurring in recent weeks and that trend hasn’t stopped yet. According to a report from CBS DFW, a shooting has occurred at a Home Depot in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The report states that two police officers were critically injured and a civilian was also shot and injured.
At this point in time, the condition of the two officers and civilian is not known.
CBS stated that a large police presence was noticed outside the store and that at least one person was seen being loaded into the back of an ambulance. It was also reported that the police are currently involved in a manhunt near a creek behind the store. Police have already identified the suspect as 29-year-old Armando Juarez.
Anyone who has listened to things that President Donald Trump has said in the past will know that he’s been against state dinners at the White House, but that appears to have changed. On Tuesday evening, the president hosted French President Emmanuel Macron and French First Lady Brigitte Macron at his first one ever. Not only does the guest list consist of a number of big names, but things are also going to be kept upscale with a menu for the ages.
While some may look at this year’s guest list and think it doesn’t compare to those of the state dinners held by Barack Obama, George Bush, or Bill Clinton, it’s still impressive nonetheless.
As reported by CNN, media mogul Rupert Murdoch is there with his wife, Jerry Hall. Apple Vice President Lisa Jackson and Apple CEO Tim Cook arrived at the state dinner together before Olympic curler John Shuster and women’s hockey player Meghan Duggan arrived.
A man who was mistakenly suspected of stealing a car is suing three companies in a federal lawsuit for the ordeal he suffered for 18 days. Edward Kovari, 39, was arrested as he exited a convenience store in Winchester, Virginia. Kovari had recently moved to Winchester from Houston, and police believed his vehicle was one that was reported stolen in Texas. However, the charges were later dismissed, because the car belonged to Kovari, and he was arrested based on a false report, according to the Washington Post.
First Lady Melania Trump’s sleek white outfit complete with a big white hat ahead of President Donald Trump’s first state dinner caught the Internet’s attention today.
The President and the First Lady welcomed French President Emmanuel Macron and French first lady Brigitte Macron to the White House, and Melania’s stylish white outfit made quite a fashion statement.
The look consisted of an asymmetrical belted Michael Kors blazer and matching pencil skirt, which she topped with a wide-brimmed matching white hat created by French-born designer Hervé Pierre. Pierre also designed the First Lady’s inaugural ball gown.
Today reported that state dinners are the most elaborate White House events, and former first ladies said they stressed out as much or more about hosting these events than they did about their own wedding days.
