    Go to 3 minutes in. Can clearly here the first few shots (.308) the Sheriff says were aimed at the airplane fuel tanker near the concert. The steady firing starts at 3:50, but sounds like a shot or two goes off at the same time as the steady firing starts.

    A lost shoelace at Michigan State University caused a racial uproar Wednesday after someone mistook it for a noose. MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon released a statement Wednesday morning saying she was “distressed” after finding out “a student reported a noose was hung outside of her room.” Simon commended the student’s “courage” for reporting the “racial incident” and put out a clear message. “This type of behavior is not tolerated on our campus,” Simon said. “No Spartan should ever feel targeted based on their race, or other ways in which they identify.” But by Wednesday afternoon, the investigation by...

James currently attends University of Michigan's School of Music, Theatre & Dance, where he is working towards his BFA in directing.

    Parents are upset about politics’ pervasiveness in the classroom. One of the answers a Jackson Hole High School English teacher gave her students on a multiple choice quiz Thursday was “A) He was shooting at Trump.” Teton County School District No. 1 confirmed the answer was on a quiz administered online by their secure learning management system. The quiz has since been taken down. Jim McCollum was surprised when his son Rylee McCollum, a junior, came home and showed him a screenshot of the online test. "I had to read it two times," McCollum said. "I was like, 'Are you...

    Maybe it’s because I’m so damn entertaining and knowledgeable. Maybe it’s because I provide so much love and attention. Maybe I AM Supermum. Who knows? Is there a magic mum formula, a secret to having two kids who DON’T do Facebook? Or Instagram? Or Twitter? Who aren’t self-obsessed selfie senders? Who aren’t vloggers ? They used to do some of them. USED to, mind. It’s the latest teenage trend as far as social media’s concerned.(snip) Apparently two-thirds of teens are sick of social media, with some going as far as to say they wouldn’t mind if it had never been...

    What was his motive? Why did he do it? Why did Stephen Paddock, 64, rent rooms at the Mandalay Bay hotel, sneak in an arsenal of guns, a dozen of them converted to fully automatic, and rain down death on a country music concert? "We will never know," writes columnist Eugene Robinson. "There can be no rational argument for mass murder ... nothing can really explain the decision to spray thousands of concertgoers with automatic weapons fire, killing at least 59 and injuring hundreds more." But while there can be no justification for mass murder, there is an explanation. And...
  • YouTube modifies search to curb Las Vegas shooting hoaxes

    YouTube is modifying its search engine to "promote more authoritative sources" in an effort to demote debunked conspiracy theories that have been spreading in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre, according to The Wall Street Journal. ... One of those results in question was a video titled "Proof Las Vegas Shooting Was a FALSE FLAG attack—Shooter on 4th Floor," which claimed there were multiple shooters involved in the massacre — a rumor that has been refuted by authorities. On Tuesday, that video appeared as the fifth result when searching YouTube for "Las Vegas shooting," according to the report, helping...

    WASHINGTON — Alexandria’s top prosecutor says police were legally justified in using deadly force against the man who opened fire on a congressional baseball practice in June, injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, of Louisiana, and four other people. In a 41-page report released Friday, the commonwealth’s attorney for Alexandria, Bryan Porter, said police were justified in fatally shooting 66-year-old James T. Hogkinson who shot at Republican lawmakers practicing at a baseball field in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria for an upcoming charity baseball game. This is a developing story.

    My Lord what a week it's been! A week of highs and lows, joy and tears. From Cuba to the Mandalay Bay, from Tom Petty to Harvey Weinstein. An it's not over! Overall I'm highly proud of the God fearing, patriotic American's who acted so heroically in Las Vegas, Cops and citizens alike. Not so proud of Speaker Ryan jumping on the bump stock ban even when he had cover from the NRA and could have kept his trap shut. Definitely not one to trust. Now on to more Trump Winning, trashing the Iran Deal and laughing as Mueller picks...

    In the 1990s, I and my distinguished colleague Charlotte Ponticelli had the privilege of working with Dr. Clyde Snow, one of the world’s foremost experts in forensic anthropology, who played an instrumental role in bringing justice to Argentina by uncovering the mass graves left behind by the country’s “Dirty War.” His actions and investigation helped uncover the truth about what was an incredibly deadly series of crimes carried out over nearly a decade. Holding the regime in Argentina accountable set a valuable precedent and demonstrated the global community’s commitment to upholding justice and human rights, which must be maintained today....

    © Bogdan Rudenko/Russian Defense Ministry MOSCOW, October 6. /TASS/. The first prototype of the Mikoyan MiG-29 multirole frontline fighter jet took to the skies forty years ago, on October 6, 1977. History, designing The development of fourth-generation fighter jets started in the Soviet Union and in the United States in the late 1960s. As compared to their predecessors, the Soviet MiG-23, the US F-5 Tiger and the French Mirage F.1, the new-generation planes were intended to become multifunctional (i.e. to be able to destroy targets both in the air and on the ground), show increased maneuverability and spend less fuel,...

    Monday is “Deregulation Day” for the federal government as declared by President Donald Trump, and thus is an opportune time to deliver the findings of The Heritage Foundation’s latest tracking of regulation. The bad news is that the final year of the Obama administration brought the private-sector costs of its reign of regulatory excess to $122 billion a year. And that’s the low-ball figure. On the other hand, the Trump administration, in its first six months, launched a multifaceted reform agenda that has slowed regulatory output. Some rules have been blocked and others rescinded, along with the withdrawal of hundreds...

    Mark Essex’s campaign of terror against the New Orleans police climaxed on Jan. 7 in an 11-hour rampage at the Howard Johnson’s hotel on Loyola Avenue, where he killed seven people, including three police officers, and wounded eight. A week earlier, he had killed two other police officers and wounded one. Mark James Robert Essex was born in Emporia, Kansas. Kicked out of the Navy after two years with a general discharge for unsuitability for "character and behavior disorders," the 23-year-old took up radical Black Panther politics and developed an intense hatred for the police. He came to the city...

    Today I'm counting my blessings. My wife Colleen, my daughter Ashley and I are huge country & western fans. We go to lots of outdoor concerts and Country Music Association awards shows. In fact, we were planning to attend the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert on Sunday night and stay at the spectacular Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. In the end, we decided not to attend. Otherwise, we might have been among the 59 killed and hundreds wounded by the monster who strafed the crowd of 22,000 from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. Many...

    A Wyoming man accused of public intoxication allegedly told police he traveled from the year 2048 to warn mankind of an impending invasion by extraterrestrials. Bryant Johnson issued his grave warning to Casper police Monday night after officers were called about the man and his out-of-this-world message, according to an arrest report obtained by HuffPost. Johnson, who police said smelled of alcohol and spoke with slightly slurred speech, allegedly told officers that “the aliens were coming next year and we needed to make sure to leave as fast as possible.” According to the report, he didn’t specify an exact date...

    'Public expenditures on the council and related forums have produced few benefits' President Trump, while still a candidate, promised that he would get a better deal for America. Or, in fact, better deals. Since he’s taken office, he’s talked about cutting funding for the United Nations, renegotiating the NAFTA trade deal. He already pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord. All of which have taken extensive discussion and defending. On Friday, he decided to get a better deal for the U.S. with a simple move: he simply canceled an entire federal program begun by President Obama. It was...

    It began as a relatively quiet day in the presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were each holed up with their aides on Friday, Oct. 7, 2016, preparing for the second presidential debate, scheduled for Sunday night. Hurricane Matthew, which was churning off the Florida coast, led the Friday-morning newscasts. The Chicago Cubs were beginning a quest for their first World Series title in more than a century. But by midafternoon three separate bombshells, all coming within the span of roughly 90 minutes, threatened to throw the race into chaos. First, the top intelligence officials of the Obama administration...
