MORE THAN 50 KILLED & 200 Injured In Las Vegas Shooting.


A gunman opened fire on an outdoor country music concert near Mandalay Bay late Sunday, killing at least 50 people, injuring more than 200 and sending the Las Vegas Strip into chaos.The massacre is believed to be the worst mass shooting in United States history.

One off-duty Las Vegas police officer attending the concert was among the victims killed.

The suspect, Stephen Paddock, 64, was killed by police on a high-level hotel floor at Mandalay Bay, Sheriff Joe Lombardo said early Monday. He said police believed they had located Marilou Danley, a person of interest associated with Paddock.

Police also found two vehicles, a Hyundai Tucson, Nevada license plate 114 B40, and a Chrysler Pacifica Touring, Nevada license plate 79D 401. 

The attack came during the last performances on the final night of the three-day Route 91 country music festival, which has been held for the past four years on a 15-acre lot on Las Vegas Boulevard across from Mandalay Bay.

Gunfire from an automatic weapon rang out while Jason Aldean was onstage. Concertgoer Ivetta Saldana, who was there with a friend, said the shots sounded like fireworks.

She said she hid in a sewer.

“It was a horror show,” she said at the Town Square shopping center south of the Strip. “People were standing around, then they hit the floor.”

One responding officer was critically injured, and another had minor injuries, police said.


False reports of other shooters:
At one point police were investigating reports of active shooters at other Strip properties. Those reports turned out to be false.

Mandalay Bay, the MGM Grand and the Tropicana remained on lockdown at 2:25 a.m. Guests were told to stay in their rooms, and the hotel is not letting people into the building.

Roads throughout the area, including I-15 between Blue Diamond Road and Charleston Boulevard, were shut down. The Metropolitan Police Department is asking people to avoid the south Strip.

It appeared the shooter was firing down at concertgoers from upper-level rooms at Mandalay Bay. He was killed on the 32nd floor, police said.

Scores of victims were transported to hospitals across the valley. One off-duty police officer from Bakersfield was among the victims.

“O.J. IS HOME!”…. O.J. Simpson release from Nevada Prison Sunday.

O.J. Simpson was released on parole in Nevada on Sunday, after serving nine years in a state prison on charges stemming from an armed robbery in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2007.
Mr. Simpson, 70, was released at 12:08 a.m. local time from Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada, a state prisons spokeswoman, Brooke Keast, told The Associated Press. Ms. Keast said she did not know who met Mr. Simpson upon his release and did not know where he was immediately headed in his first hours of freedom.
“I don’t have any information on where he’s going,” she said.
As of Friday afternoon, neither Florida nor California had received the requisite paperwork for Mr. Simpson to return to those states. According to Mr. Simpson’s lawyer, Malcolm P. LaVergne, Nevada needs to make a request to the receiving state, which has 45 days to reply.
Once a revered football hero and actor, Mr. Simpson became a polarizing figure in a continuing national debate over race and criminal justice when he was acquitted in 1995 of the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman.
The acquittal outraged many white Americans, while many African-Americans saw the verdict as a kind of payback for decades of racial discrimination by judges, juries and law enforcement officials. A civil jury later found Mr. Simpson liable for the deaths.


The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners voted unanimously to release Mr. Simpson last July, when he first became eligible. At his parole hearing, Mr. Simpson, whose 1995 trial was watched by millions of people, said, “I basically have spent a conflict-free life” and “I’ve always been a guy that got along with everybody.”

Among the factors cited in the parole board’s decision was a lack of previous criminal convictions. But that was wrong. In response to an inquiry from The New York Times, a spokesman for the commissioners said that they had not known about a 1989 conviction because there was no record of it in the National Crime Information Center database, which they had consulted.
In 1989, Mr. Simpson pleaded no contest in Los Angeles to misdemeanor battery of Ms. Simpson, who was then his wife. Because of the omission, the conviction was not taken into account by the judge who sentenced him.
In 2007, Mr. Simpson and a group of other men, two of them carrying guns, went to the Las Vegas hotel room of a sports memorabilia dealer and took hundreds of items from him. Mr. Simpson said was merely reclaiming property that had been stolen from him, but he was convicted in 2008 of robbery, kidnapping and other charges.
He was sentenced to nine to 33 years. He served the minimum.

Puerto Rico is still without running water, electricity and communications with love ones and the rest of the world.

NARANJITO, Puerto Rico — Twenty miles from their capital of San Juan, Puerto Ricans still are marooned in a once-lush landscape that Hurricane Maria raked almost entirely of greenery 10 days ago.They are without running water, electricity or consistent communications with the rest of the world.

Obtaining necessities such as water, food and fuel for cars and generators is a daylong mission for each item. But across the Plata River from a long line of cars and people waiting for drinkable water from a tower, a smaller line formed near a PVC pipe trickling water from a hillside spring.


Nicolle Ramos, 29, of nearby Toa Alta, said her family uses the water for bathing, flushing toilets and — after its boiled — drinking.


“When it rains, we don’t come,” Ramos said as she watched people fill coolers, pales and bottles to put in their cars. “We gather water from the downspouts and wash clothes by hand.”
Michelle Rebollo, Ramos’ mother, said gathering this water was today’s task.

“Tomorrow we’re going to try to find gasoline,” Rebollo said in perfect English. “Then, we’ll try to get money. Each one is a whole day.”

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said Saturday that 714 gas stations, more than half the stations in Puerto Rico, are operating and receiving fuel. But many of the stations lining the roads near Naranjito were closed or confronted travelers with a sign: “No hay gasolina,” no gasoline.

Puerto Rico will receive more fuel in coming days with eight deliveries from Sunday to the next Saturday, Rosselló said.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency and Puerto Rican National Guard are working to deliver food and water to hard-to-access places, set up telecommunications in municipal centers and deliver needed supplies to hospitals, the governor said.

“Today we have 51 to 53 of 69 hospitals open, depending on how you measure it,” he said. “Nine of those hospitals are energized,” meaning they have a normal electric power supply and do not depend on an emergency generator.

The death toll from Maria has reached 16 so far and is likely to rise, the governor said.

Some of the proceeds will go towards helping the people in Puerto Rico

Usher’s male accuser claims singer exposed him to the STD herpes at spa

A man accusing Usher of exposing him to herpes claims the two had sex at a spa in Los Angeles.
The unidentified male accusing the R&B star of exposing him to herpes alleges that the pair had sex at a spa in Koreatown, Los Angeles, according to documents obtained by TMZ.
Usher has refused to take an STD test and admit he has herpes, according to the documents.

One man and two women are suing the “U Got it Bad” singer for millions of dollars for exposing them to the sexually transmitted disease.
Quantasia Sharpton is one of the accusers, who has been outspoken in her battle against Usher, claiming the two had a sexual encounter at her hotel room in Atlantic City on her 19th birthday two years ago.
The other woman alleges she had two sexual encounters with the singer and had two twins that were stillborn, according to TMZ.
The trio claims Usher never told him he had herpes before engaging in a sexual encounter, which is a violation of California law, according to their lawyer Lisa Bloom.
The allegations came after the singer had paid $1 million to a woman he allegedly infected with the disease.
Usher’s herpes accuser claims she has video proof of their hookup

In a report by RadarOnline from last month that detailed the $1 million lawsuit from 2012, the suit stated that the singer was diagnosed with herpes around 2009 or 2010.
Usher denied “each and every allegation” in court documents.

Hurricane Maria: Puerto Rico left without electricity 


Hurricane Maria has knocked out power to the entire island of Puerto Rico, home to 3.5m people, emergency officials have said.

Abner Gómez, head of the disaster management agency, said the hurricane had damaged “everything in its path”.

None of the customers of Puerto Rico’s Electric Power Authority had any electricity, he said.

Maria weakened to a category three storm with winds of 115 mph (185km/h) as it moved across the island.

“The information we received is not encouraging,” Mr Gómez told a briefing, urging people to stay in their homes.


Earlier, Puerto Rico’s governor asked President Donald Trump to declare the island a disaster area after the storm unleashed heavy flooding and life-threatening winds.Governor Ricardo Rossello said major damage was inevitable, although 500 shelters had been established to protect people.

The devastating storm has already left seven people dead on the island of Dominica, which was badly affected on Monday.

Aerial footage shows flattened houses and the death toll on Dominica is likely to rise, with details remaining scant as communication links are down.

Images shared on social media show roofs being stripped away as winds as strong as 140 mph (225 km/h) whipped trees and power lines in Puerto Rico’s capital city, San Juan.

Maria made landfall in Yabucoa in the east of Puerto Rico early on Wednesday, according to the US National Hurricane Center (NHC).

The US territory is facing $73bn in public debt and the damage left by Maria could exacerbate its financial crisis. Declaring a disaster would mean the island could receive more federal assistance in its recovery.
“God is with us; we are stronger than any hurricane,” Mr Rossello said. “Together we will rise again.”

Puerto Rico has experienced just one category five storm since 1851 – the Okeechobee Hurricane in 1928.

Maria is the second storm of this strength to hit the Caribbean this hurricane season – the first being category five Irma earlier in September. Maria began moving roughly along the same track as Irma.

Officials in Puerto Rico feared the debris left by Irma could prove extremely dangerous in the high winds.

Jay Z stands with Kaepernick and turned down offer to perform at 2018 NFL Super Bowl. 

JAY-Z had an offer on the table, and the rapper/mogul has allegedly declined.Metro UK claims that the star had been offered to play halftime at the Super Bowl in February, but Jay decided against it.


According to ‘an insider’ for The Sun, “Lots of people have been saying Jay will perform with Justin Timberlake, but it is simply not the case. ‘He has enough songs to create an incredible performance but he really has no plans to do the half-time show.”

Jay’s superstar wife Beyonce has played the Super Bowl twice over the past five years–as the main halftime performance back in 2013 and alongside Coldplay and Bruno Mars in 2016.

At the 2017 Meadows Music & Arts Festival this past weekend, Jay gave a aparticularly well-received performance. One standout moment of the night was Jay performing “The Story of OJ.” He dedicated the song to embattled NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the late comedian Dick Gregory, who died in August.

“I want to dedicate this song to Colin Kaepernick tonight,” Hov said before performing the song. “I want to dedicate this [song] to Dick Gregory. I want to dedicate this song to anyone that was held back and you overcame.”

Chicago Teen Kenneka Jenkins Found Dead in Rosemont Hotel Freezer

ROSEMONT, IL — A Chicago teen was found dead Sunday inside a walk-in freezer at a Rosemont hotel. The family of Kenneka Jenkins, 19, said police told them the teen was inebriated when she let herself into the freezer and died inside. The teen was reportedly at a party on the ninth floor of the hotel celebrating a new job.

Her mother, Tereasa Martin, set up a GoFundMe page titled “Justice for Kenneka,” saying, “We believe there is more to the story,” and adding, “Since this is still under investigation, there isn’t much I can say.”
Martin spoke with reporters outside the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel & Conference Center in Rosemont, where Jenkins was found dead on Sunday. She said her daughter left home around 11:30 p.m. Friday to attend a party at the hotel.
“(I’m) horrified,” she told the Chicago Tribune. Martin said she heard from her daughter’s friends just 4 a.m. Saturday to say they couldn’t find her.
She told WGN she headed straight to the hotel, where she asked them to check surveillance video. She said she was told to contact police, so she called 911 and was told to wait a few hours because Jenkins could be out with friends.
“We were begging for help, and no one was helping,” Jenkins told WGN. Jenkins’ sister filed a missing person report with Rosemont police on Saturday afternoon, kicking off an 11-hour search for the 19-year-old. 
Jenkins’ body was found inside the walk-in freezer. She was pronounced dead at 12:48 a.m. Sunday, according to the Cook County medical examiner. 


The Crowne Plaza issued a statement on Sunday, telling ABC-7 it was “saddened by this news, and our thoughts are with the young woman and her family during this difficult time.” The hotel said the safety of its guests and employees is its first priority, adding that hotel staff is cooperating with authorities.
Jenkins’ mother told WGN she has a hard time believing police’s version of events, saying safety features make it possible to open walk-in cooler doors from the inside. She also said that if her daughter was drunk, she would have had trouble opening the heavy freezer doors and realized they weren’t the doors to an elevator or hotel entrance.
“I believe someone in this hotel killed my child,” Martin said.
A GoFundMe page created by Martin said donations would help cover funeral arrangements and help with the investigation. “Help me get justice for her,” Martin wrote.

Hurricane Irma is so strong, it literally sucks away Bahamas shoreline.


Hurricane Irma is so strong, it is literally changing the coastline in some areas.Twitter user @Kaydi_K witnessed this phenomenon firsthand, sharing on social media an extraordinary video that showed the ocean floor completely exposed on Long Island in the Bahamas.

“I am in disbelief right now…This is Long Island, Bahamas and the ocean water is missing!!!” she wrote on Friday.

The bizarre and somewhat eerie video is a result of the hurricane’s low pressure and sheer strength, causing surrounding waters to be sucked into its core, the Washington Post reported.

It may be a case of a hurricane “bulge” effect, said Angela Fritz, deputy weather editor for the Post, in which very low pressure in the center of the storm acts as a sucking mechanism, drawing in air and pulling water from the surrounding area.

Although the Tsunami Information Center warns receding waters are typically a precursor to a tsunami, the Post reports that is not the case in this instance.

Instead, the Long Island shoreline that was swept away with Hurricane Irma was expected to gradually return to Long Island on Sunday afternoon, without great force.

Hurricane Irma struck the Bahamas on Friday, as it made its way toward Florida, where meteorologists predicted it would hit the Keys on Sunday morning

The storm is then predicted to hug the state’s west coast, plowing into the Tampa Bay area by Monday morning
