Mark Cuban calls Donald Trump a 'jagoff,' says he's voting for Hillary Clinton

Mark Cuban
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton toured the U.S. Rust Belt on Saturday, promising to reject bad international trade deals during a factory visit and securing the endorsement of investor Mark Cuban at a Pittsburgh rally.
The Dallas Mavericks owner, who said as recently as last month that there was a "good chance" he would vote for Donald Trump, instead criticized the Republican nominee's leadership in front of an energetic crowd.
"Leadership is not yelling and screaming and intimidating," Cuban said.
"You know what we call a person like that in Pittsburgh? A jagoff!" Cuban added, using disparaging Pittsburgh slang.
Cuban had spoken with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta several times in recent weeks and called him on Thursday to say he was ready to endorse Clinton, a campaign aide said.

Notorious paedophile burnt alive in Lagos

Notorious paedophile burnt alive in Lagos
Notorious paedophile who raped an eight year-old girl at church premises in Ikorodu area of Lagos and has been terrorizing the neighbourhood for months was on Sunday burnt  alive by the residents.
The yet-to-be identified man, known only as “Badoo” was apprehended by some members of vigilante group in the area who detained and punished for several hours after raping an 8-year-old girl before they stone him and set ablased.
It was reliably gathered that the sexual abuse crime was reportedly took place during a celestial church vigil on Sunday, July 24 and the locals hunted for the criminal immediately after one of the church members found the young victim helplessly lying at the church premises.
The criminal who was learnt to belong to one of the notorious cult group that has been terrorizing Ikorodu township and neighboring towns was nabbed while hiding inside a primary school.
A Police source who confirmed the incident said Jungle justice is an extrajudicial punishment by an informal group.
He said, “It is most often used to characterise informal public executions by a mob in order to punish an alleged transgressor. This form of justice frequently occurs in Africa where people still believe in the old method of taking justice into their own hands”.

"It was a traumatic experience" says Catholic priest who spoke to the executed Nigerians at the shooting place in Indonesia


A Catholic priest who was present at Nusakambangan prison in Indonesia during last Thursday's executions of three Nigerian drug convicts and one local drug lord, has described the experience as 'traumatic'

Father Charles Burrows, who is based in Cilacap near the prison, was called there to speak with two of of the three Nigerians, who were among 4 death row prisoners executed by firing squad. 

Father Burrows said he doesn't know if the executed prisoners suffered. He said he had been present in the past when it has taken several minutes for prisoners to die.

"The first time, it was seven to eight minutes, and then there were some of the other times it was 15 minutes and they still weren't, hadn't expired," he said. "And the captain has to wait with a pistol and shoot into the brain." he told Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Father Burrows said he went with the other ministers from different spiritualities to the "shooting place", because there was no time to speak with them in their cells, with great confusion in the lead-up to the execution. He said it was a "traumatic experience". The ministers prayed together while four ministers spoke to the four men who were executed.

Bill Clinton goes after Donald Trump for calling out the mother of a US soldier killed in Iraq

Bill Clinton

Hillary Clinton's top surrogates are taking aim at rival Donald Trump for criticizing the bereaved mother of a Muslim Army captain, a comment that sparked outrage across the political spectrum on Saturday.
Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine expressed shock that the GOP nominee would attack Ghazala Khan for not speaking during her husband's address to the Democratic convention.
"He was kind of trying to turn that into some kind of ridicule," Kaine said after a campaign event in Pittsburgh. "It just demonstrates again kind of a temperamental unfitness. If you don't have any more sense of empathy than that, then I'm not sure you can learn it."
Former President Bill Clinton, who joined his wife and Kaine at the event, agreed: "I cannot conceive how you can say that about a Gold Star mother."

austin shooting

One woman has died and multiple people were hospitalised after two shootings in downtown Austin, Texas.
Emergency services were called to Sixth Street at 2:17 a.m on Sunday. Police on Twitter urged locals to stay away from the area.
Seven minutes later, emergency services responded to another call on nearby Trinity Street where the victim was being assaulted by an individual with a firearm near a parking garage.
Police later confirmed that the two incidents were isolated and not related.
The incident on Sixth Street was believed to have begun after a disagreement between two individuals led one of them to fire shots into the crowd. Paramedics at the scene said bodies with gunshot wounds were spread across the area.
A woman in her 30s was pronounced dead at the scene and four other people were injured, according to the Austin-County Emergency Medical Services.
Eyewitness Dorian Santiago told Sky News: "We heard fired shots, and people started running crazy ... I was trying to figure out what happened."
"One victim ... they were trying to do CPR to help her, but it looked like she was already dead."
Austin police chief, Bryan Manley, stressed that the incidents were not related, saying: "What we had was two separate incidents that occurred in very close proximity to each other both in location and time that made us initially believe it was an active shooter."

The newly revealed attack comes after computer networks for the Democratic National Committee and the party’s fund-raising committee for congressional candidates were also hacked.

Zoo animals are starving to death at Venezuela's zoos

RTSJW8T
Venezuela is no stranger to crisis. In recent years, the South American country has been on the brink of economic collapse.
A drastic fall in oil prices, which provides almost all of Venezuela's foreign income, has been followed by a severe recession and widespread food and medicine shortages.
For Venezuelans, the scarcity has led to choosing between waiting in hours-long lines for basic food supplies or succumbing to sky-high prices on the black market.
That scarcity has now spread to Venezuela's zoos, where food shortages have left some animals emaciated or even dying.

Homeland chief says biggest fear is lone wolf style terror attack

June 30, 2016: Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson testifies before a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on "Oversight of the Department of Homeland Security" in Washington.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the threat of “lone wolf” terror attacks has become his biggest fear, saying self-radicalized militants are much more difficult for law enforcement and intelligence agencies to detect.
Mr. Johnson, speaking at the Aspen Security Forum, said U.S. and foreign counterterrorism officials have had to adjust to the prevalence of “small scale attacks in increasing frequency,” both in the U.S. and Europe.
He specifically mentioned the December terror attack in San Bernardino, Calif., when a husband-and-wife team killed 14 people at a holiday party, and the mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub last month that killed nearly 50 people.

Man who fought for custody of his son for almost a year gets the devastating news he had been dreading

Dillon Wyckoff who had been in a year-long custody battle over his two-year-old son, Mason Wyckoff got a tragic news on Friday that his little boy had passed away possibly at the hands of his mother. Emergency crews were called to his baby mama's apartment where they found the deceased toddler alongside his unconscious mother, Stephenie Erickson.

He told the Des Moines Register:
“He was everything in my world. She had threatened and threatened to do it, and she did it to hurt me. They haven’t proven anything yet, but I know down deep that’s what happened.”
“It’s been a year-long battle with all this stuff, and it’s been going downhill…We prayed and prayed it wouldn’t be this.”
Mason’s grandmother, Michel Cunningham, said they had lived in fear for months on end, worrying about Erickson’s mental stability especially after she told Wyckoff he would “never see his son again”:
“I tried contacting DHS (the Department of Human Services). We’ve dealt with over seven different police departments for over a year. They kept telling us that we had to wait for ‘something to happen.’ And look at what did.

6 takeaways from Wednesday night at the Democratic Convention

The Democratic A-list on Wednesday cast Donald Trump as a threat to the American dream -- and Hillary Clinton as the nation's only chance to save it.
President Barack Obama called Trump a "homegrown demagogue." Michael Bloomberg dismissed him as a "con." And Vice President Joe Biden, in rejecting Trump, declared that "Americans have never, ever, ever, ever let their country down."
    They set the frame for the Democratic National Convention's most important moment: Clinton's speech Thursday night.
    Here are six takeaways from the third night in Philadelphia:

    Kansas stepfather accused of abandoning infant in trash

     Lawrence Police attend the scene, Thursday, July 7, 2016,, near where an infant was found earlier in a Lawrence apartment complex's trash receptacle, police said.
    Police in Lawrence, Kansas, say a 9-month-old girl's stepfather is accused of abandoning the infant in a trash bin earlier this month.
    The Kansas City Star reports that 27-year-old Marquis Jamall Young is charged in an arrest warrant with attempted first-degree murder and child abuse.
    The child was found early July 7 in the trash receptacle at an apartment complex.
    The infant was treated at a Kansas City-area hospital and was released about two weeks later.
    A police spokeswoman, Sgt. Amy Rhoads, says the girl is in the state's custody and will continue to receive outpatient treatment for her injuries.
    It was not immediately clear Tuesday if Young has an attorney.

    Knifeman who killed 19 at disabled care home pictured SMIRKING in back of police ca

    Satoshi Uematsu, suspected of a deadly attack at a facility for the disabled, is seen inside a police car as he is taken to prosecutors, at Tsukui police station in Sagamihara, Kanagawa prefecture, Japan
    Smirking as he is driven away in the back of a police car, this is the knifeman who killed 19 people and injured 25 at a care home for disabled people in Japan .
    Satoshi Uematsu turned himself in following the stabbing spree in Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture - Japan's worst mass killing in decades.
    The 26-year-old today appeared before public prosecutors as a team of police officers raided his home.
    About half a dozen plainclothes officers entered the property as reporters and TV cameras stood by.

    Hillary Clinton formally selected as Democratic candidate for President with help from Bernie Sanders

     Hillary Clinton wraps up a tough primary election by receiving the Democratic nomination on Tuesday. 
    Hillary Clinton is officially the first woman to top a major party ticket — and Bernie Sanders helped put her there Tuesday evening.
    Sanders came to the floor at the Democratic National Convention at the end of their official roll call vote for President to ask that the party give Clinton the nomination by acclamation, his latest move toward unifying the party and assuaging his most stubborn supporters.
    Clinton formally surpassed the 2,382 delegate votes she needed to officially lock in the nomination when the South Dakota delegation cast its votes during a state-by-state roll-call early in the evening.
    But Sanders’ surprise speech provided the moment of catharsis.
    “I move that the convention suspend the procedural votes … I move that Hillary Clinton be selected as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States,” he said before he kissed his wife Jane.
    The crowd inside the Wells Fargo Center erupted into a deafening roar, with loud “Bernie” chants overtaking several delegations.
    Sanders was then ushered out of the arena and Democratic National Committee interim Chairwoman Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) retook the stage.

    Bill Clinton helps DNC recover after bumbling opening day

    Bill Clinton gave a speech that humanized Hillary. 
    Last night’s Democratic convention was a triumph for Hillary and reversed what had begun on night one as an awkward and embarrassing hot mess of a convention.
    Bill made a pitch for his wife in a way we hadn’t seen before — lovingly humanizing their relationship — a relationship that has been dissected, discussed, disgusted and digested by everyone who is isn’t them.
    The Dems in short, showed us what our nation can be: kind, inclusive, understanding, nonviolent — everything that the Republican convention made us ashamed of becoming.
    It was a great thing to see the humanity and the humanization of the first female candidate for President — a portrait that was long overdue and has had serious complications. And with nearly three decades of Clinton fatigue under our belts, making that portrait come to life was a heavy lift.

    Man is arrested for putting gun in girlfriend's mouth and threatening to kill her as she breastfed their newborn baby


    A Florida man, 29-year-old Kevin A. Smith , allegedly pointed a gun at his 22-year-old girlfriend's head while she breastfed their newborn according to Police in St. Augustine. They say he was upset when he arrived at home and thought his 2-week-old was being fed milk from another woman.
    Smith tried to get the baby from his girlfriend, who tried to keep the infant from him, officials at the St. John County Sheriff's Office said. He held the woman down on the bed and pulled a black handgun gun on her, cops told the Palm Beach Post. Smith then pointed the gun at the woman's head — and put it between her teeth. He also took her cell phone so she couldn't call the police.

    Smith was on top of his girlfriend, trying to roll her over to get the baby, when the victim's mother arrived. The woman heard screaming and went to check on what was happening.

    When Smith went outside to his truck, the victim' s mother quickly took her and the baby outside to her own truck and called the police. Smith was arrested and charged with battery, child neglect and obstructing justice.

    “The DNC needs to make a clear statement that this was wrong and that any member of the staff involved in criticizing another candidate, especially using DNC offices and equipment, should be fired,” Rybak said. “If any officer played a role in helping another candidate when we’re supposed to be neutral, they should resign. It’s that simple. Make a clear statement. Clean up this mess so we can move on and work together.”

    EXPLOSIVE HISTORY: Who Sold Nigeria To Britain For £865k in 1899?

    FILE PHOTOFILE PHOTO
    Today we will be discussing the first oil war, which was fought in the 19th century, in the area that became Nigeria.
    All through the 19th century, palm oil was highly sought-after by the British, for use as an industrial lubricant for machinery. Remember that Britain was the world’s first industrialised nation, so they needed resources such as palm oil to maintain that.
    Palm oil of course, is a tropical plant, which is native to the Niger Delta. Malaysia’s dominance came a century later.

    By 1870, palm oil had replaced slaves as the main export of the Niger Delta, the area which was once known as the Slave Coast. At first, most of the trade in the oil palm was uncoordinated, with natives selling to those who gave them the best deals. Native chiefs such as former slave, Jaja of Opobo became immensely wealthy because of oil palm. With wealth comes influence.

    'This is revenge for Brexit': Motorists face another TWO DAYS of Dover traffic chaos as they say French deliberately put just ONE border guard on duty forcing thousands to sleep in their cars

    Thousands of motorists were still caught up in the huge traffic jam by the port on Sunday morning (pictured) 

    Frustrated motorists facing days of misery after getting stuck in miles of gridlocked traffic near Dover have questioned whether the chaos was caused by the French authorities punishing Britain for leaving the EU.
    The mayhem has left 250,000 drivers stranded in 'horrendous' 10-hour queues after the French border force imposed thorough security checks in the wake of the terror attack in Nice last week.
    Many holidaymakers were forced to sleep in their vehicles overnight and worried Brits have posted their fears online that this is punishment for the referendum vote on June 23.
    Police have warned the disruption on the roads - with cars remaining stationary as tailbacks stretch for 12 miles - is likely to last for a further two days.
    Social media users on Twitter have questioned whether the turmoil in Kent is a 'Brexit hate crime' while others have suggested the French authorities are giving Brits a 'hard time' by 'making it awkward' following the referendum.

    Syrian refugee kills woman and injures others with machete in Reutlingen Germany
    A pregnant woman is dead and at least two others are injured after a machete-wielding Syrian refugee allegedly attacked passersby on a German street.
    The 21-year-old randomly hacked at terrified members of the public with the 12-inch blade in the city of Reutlingen this afternoon, it is reported.
    A mum-to-be was killed in the horrific rampage near a kebab stand, while at least two others suffered unspecified injuries, according to local media.
    The bearded refugee, described as 'completely out of his mind', was only stopped when a brave BMW driver apparently ploughed into him.
    He was arrested by cops as he lay 'motionless' on the pavement. Police have since said there is 'no indication' he was linked to terrorism.

    More sleep may not be making you as productive as you think


    A man takes a nap on his couch alongside his dog.
    It has long been thought that the amount of time spent in different stages of sleep was responsible for how well people were able to remember things.
    But a new study done by researchers at the University of California and University of Padua shows that we may have been missing something.
    The autonomic nervous system (ANS) appears to be a key player in the brain's ability to perform memory consolidation during sleep.
    ANS is made of three parts. The sympathetic system is responsible for the body's "fight or flight" reaction, the parasympathetic system controls the body during rest with functions like heart rate and temperature, and the enteric system controls how your gut works.
