    George Bereton targeted millionaire passengers on the doomed Titanic to fleece them of their money A professional card player targeted millionaire passengers on the doomed Titanic to fleece them of their money, a fascinating document has revealed 110 years on. Unscrupulous George Brereton had with him a list of all the first class passengers when he boarded the ill-fated ship for its maiden voyage to New York in 1912.   He identified the wealthiest people and circled or starred their names on the list as a potential 'mark'. He even wrote the word 'millionaire' next to the name of Charles Hays, a VIP guest of White Star Line boss Bruce Ismay. Brereton ensconced himself in the luxury liner's first class smoking room where he played high-stake card games with his 'marks'. When the Titanic struck an iceberg and started to sink, Brereton was recorded as being in the room 'at work'. The card shark survived the sinking by sneaking into a lifeboat along with Mr Ismay. Mr Hays perished in the disaster along with more than 1,500 people. Now Bereton's copy...
    The wife of a man - who, alongside his brother and parents, has been accused of killing eight members of an Ohio family - said she felt like she was 'living in Nazi Germany' after they accused her molesting her husband's daughter.  In a phone conversation in May 2018, Jake Wagner's then-wife Beth Ann admitted to him that she felt trapped while living with his parents while he was on the road as a truck driver.  'I feel like I’m living in Nazi Germany,' she told Jake, now-29, who took a plea deal in April 2021 for shooting five of the victims.  Beth Ann testified last month that Jake's mother Angela Wagner, 52, ran the house and had accused her of inappropriately touching Jake's toddler, Sophia, two.  She also testified that her husband threatened to 'string me up in the barn, beat me to death with a baseball bat, bulldoze the barn, burn it down, and hunt down and kill my family.'  The Wagner family also accused the men who were allegedly dating Sophia's biological mother Hannah Rhoden, 19, of molesting her.  The...

    Michael Stenger, who was sergeant at arms of the Senate during the Capitol riot, died on Monday, according to a report The man in charge of protecting the Senate during the Capitol riot died on Monday, Fox News reported - the day before the January 6 Committee announced they were holding a surprise session to reveal new evidence. Michael Stenger was the sergeant at arms of the Senate - the chief law enforcement officer and head of protocol - from April 2018 until the day after the insurrection. He resigned, along with the House sergeant of arms and head of the Capitol Police, amid criticism that they had failed to call the National Guard for backup. Stenger previously served in the United States Marine Corps, and spent 35 years in the Secret Service. Fox's congressional correspondent Chad Pergram tweeted: 'Fox confirms that Michael Stenger, the Senate Sergeant at Arms who was in charge of Senate security the day of the Capitol riot, has died.'  In February 2021, Stenger told the Senate Homeland Security Committee that the role of 'professional agitators' needed...
    Dramatic video captured the moment a recently hired TSA agent jumped over a conveyer belt to save a two-month-old baby who had stopped breathing while waiting to go through a security checkpoint at a New Jersey airport. TSA agent Cecilia Morales was inside the security clearance area at Newark Liberty International Airport when she heard people screaming for help after the boy's mother noticed that he was not breathing when she lifted him from a car seat on December 9. Morales, who is a trained emergency medical technician with 10 years of experience, first tried to instruct the mother on how to revive the boy before climbing over the conveyor belt and taking the child from the frantic mom. The surveillance video - shot during the recent holiday travel rush - showed the distraught mother handing her son over to Morales, who then used the Heimlich maneuver to clear the child's airway.   'I saw the video afterward,' Morales said. 'It was the first time I've ever seen myself in action, saving a life. It was mind-blowing to watch. I felt...
    Formal photographs seldom say too much, but every so often they say everything. A little over 50 years ago, the camera clicked on a family group in the shadow of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. It was Christmas Day and the royal children had just emerged from divine worship. There, trying to bring order to the chattering tribe of siblings, cousins, second cousins and a goddaughter, was a young Prince Charles and his fashionably stylish teenage sister Princess Anne. If 1969 was a momentous year for mankind — the Apollo 11 moon landing, Concorde’s maiden flight and The Beatles’ last public performance — then it was brimming with significance for the Royal Family. It saw the death of Prince Philip’s mother, Princess Alice, Charles’s investiture as Prince of Wales and the Queen making her first appearance at Trooping the Colour on her horse Burmese, the black mare she would ride for the next 18 years. Now, 52 years on, the Queen is at Windsor Castle again for Christmas in another year marked by personal loss and extraordinary resilience. For...
    A nurse prepares the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine for children for distribution in Montreal, Quebec on November 24, 2021.ANDREJ IVANOV | AFP | Getty Images The World Health Organization on Friday assigned the Greek letter Omicron to a newly identified Covid variant in South Africa. The U.N. health agency recognized the strain, previously referred to as lineage B.1.1.529, as a variant of concern. Health experts are deeply concerned about the transmissibility of the Omicron variant given that it has an unusual constellation of mutations and a profile that is different from other variants of concern. It is feared a sharp upswing of Covid cases in South Africa's Gauteng province — where the heavily mutated strain of the virus was first identified — could mean it has greater potential to escape prior immunity than other variants. The designation of a new variant of concern coupled with mounting alarm from health officials sent global markets into a tailspin on Friday. Oil prices and travel and leisure stocks took heavy losses on the news. To be sure, WHO has said it will take weeks...
    Former President Donald Trump has defended his supporters who threatened to 'hang' his Vice President Mike Pence during the Capitol riots in January. During a taped interview with Jonathan Karl of ABC News and obtained by Axios, Trump can be heard playing down the threats, saying 'the people were very angry.' In the clip, Karl initially asks whether Trump was worried about his Vice President. 'No, I thought he was well-protected, and I had heard that he was in good shape. No. Because I had heard he was in very good shape,' Trump replies during the interview for Karl's book 'Betrayal' at Mar-a-Lago on March 18. 'Because you heard those chants — that was terrible,' Karl replies. 'They were saying 'hang Mike Pence.' 'He could have — well, the people were very angry,' Trump says. The chants were heard as Trump's supporters laid siege to the Capitol building in Washington DC on January 6 following a rally held by the then-president outside the White House, forcing those inside the building - including Pence - to evacuate. 'It's common sense, Jon. It's common sense...
    (CNN)The Columbus Blue Jackets have fired recently hired assistant coach Sylvain Lefebvre after he decided to not get vaccinated against Covid-19. The NHL team said on Monday that the decision to let Lefebvre go was because he would not be able to "perform the duties required of him given current NHL protocols."According to the current National Hockey League's Covid-19 protocols, every club's coaching staff and operations staff are required to be fully vaccinated. Players are not mandated to be vaccinated but those that are not face much stricter protocols than those that are.

    Chilling new details have emerged about the execution-style killing of a recently released convicted murderer in Queens, including that in the weeks leading up to his slaying he would look over his shoulder whenever he ventured outside the hotel where was staying.  Jermaine Dixon, 46, was fatally shot in the back of the head by a suspected hitman disguised as a Hasidic Jew early Monday morning in Queens. Shocking surveillance footage captured the moment Dixon was ambushed as he climbed into his car, parked just 500 feet from the Comfort Inn that he called 'home.' The cold-blooded execution took place in broad daylight, less than a year after Dixon, a former gang member, was released from prison after serving 19 years for a murder conviction.  Law enforcement sources told NBC New York they are looking into the possibility that the unidentified gunman targeted Dixon because he believed the ex-convict was cooperating with the government as an informant against his co-defendants.  Detectives also revealed that in the weeks leading up to his death, Dixon would look around him whenever he walked...

    NEW YORK (AP) — When the text message popped up on his phone, Samuel Alfaro didn’t want to believe it. It said his appointment with U.S. immigration services about his application to join the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the one he had been waiting on for months, was canceled because of a court order halting the Obama-era deportation protections for those brought to the U.S. as children. “I thought it was a scam,” the 19-year-old from Houston said of the message he received Sunday night, hours before his appointment. Alfaro went to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website and “kept checking it, refreshing it every few hours.” Later, he got an email, confirming it was true. Now, he simply feels “a little sad.” Alfaro isn’t the only one. Tens of thousands of young immigrants in the country without legal status are in the same position following a July 16 ruling from a federal judge in Texas that declared DACA illegal while leaving the program intact for existing recipients. The ruling bars the government from approving any new...
    Our understanding of human evolution could be 'reshaped' by the identification of a new ancient human that may replace Neanderthals as our closest relative. Experts led from China's Hebei GEO University came to this conclusion after re-analysing the so-called 'Harbin cranium', which was unearthed back in the 1930s. First thought from Homo heidelbergensis, the team now think the near-perfectly preserved skull instead represents an example of Homo longi — the 'Dragon Man'. Held in Hebei GEO's geoscience museum, the skull — the largest of all Homo species — was found in the Songhua River, near Harbin, in China's Heilongjiang province.  The fossil specimen was hidden for decades in a well, and was only handed over to researchers for study back in 2017. H. longi had a brain comparable in size to that of modern humans, but sported big, almost square eye sockets, thick brow ridges, a wide mouth and larger teeth.  Scroll down for video Our understanding of human evolution could be 'reshaped' by the identification of a new ancient human (Homo longi, depicted) that may replace Neanderthals as our closest relative...
    The Wuhan lab in China at the source of speculation about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic kept live bats at the facility - despite a WHO investigator insisting they did not - according to a new report. The footage, which aired Sunday on Sky News Australia, was reportedly filmed inside the lab and showed a series of cages containing live bats. A coordinator for the group Drastic, which is independently crowd-sourcing ideas about the origins of the pandemic, provided the footage of the bats to Sky. The coordinator goes by the pseudonym of Billy Bostickson, for safety reasons, and has long insisted that bats were housed in the Wuhan laboratories. The footage of the bats, which Sky News' Sharri Markson insisted was from the Wuhan lab, contradicts assertions made by a member of the World Health Organization (WHO) team who visited the site in late January. Sky News Australia on Sunday aired footage which they said was given to them by activist group Drastic. They said the footage of bats was filmed inside the Wuhan lab. A member of the WHO...
    The Yale University graduate student whose body was found on a Connecticut street next to his car in February had been shot multiple times and at close range in an attack that investigators say was carried out by a Massachusetts Institute of Technology researcher who wanted to date the victim's fiancée. The possible motive behind the February 6 killing of Kevin Jiang was included in a detailed arrest warrant that was unsealed in court on Friday. The 96-page document also stated that Jiang's suspected killer, 30-year-old Qinxuan Pan, has been tied to a string of other recent shootings in New Haven, including one targeting a local school district official, which took place the night before the homicide.  Jiang, 26, had gunshot wounds to his head, chest and extremities when he was found dead next to his fiancée's home in the East Rock section of New Haven, according to the warrant.

    (CNN)A newly proposed bill in Tennessee would make it even more difficult to protest in the state -- by making obstructing a highway a felony and giving immunity to drivers who unintentionally injure or kill those in the way.The HB13 bill, which was introduced in the Tennessee General Assembly in February, builds on legislation that already exists in the state. It is already illegal to obstruct a "highway, street, sidewalk, railway, waterway, elevator, aisle, or hallway," but doing so results in a Class A misdemeanor. The newly proposed bill would make that a Class E felony, punished with up to six years in prison. At the same time, the bill would give anyone operating a vehicle who "unintentionally causes injury or death to another person" blocking a pathway complete immunity from prosecution for the injury or death.Tennessee tried to implement a similar bill in 2017, but the House version did not pass the Civil Justice Committee and the Senate version did not make it out of the Senate Judiciary Committee.Read MoreOther similar bills have been proposed in legislatures across the...

    CNN’s Don Lemon railed against newly-elected Republican Illinois Congresswoman Mary Miller, for positively invoking Hitler in a speech at the pro-Trump rally on Wednesday, when she said the Nazi leader “was right on one thing, the children are our future.” During his Friday night show, Lemon segued from a MAGA mob stalking and chanting “Traitor!” at Sen. Lindsey Graham at Washington’s airport to Miller’s comments at Wednesday’s pro-Trump rally on The Mall. In her defense of Trump, Miller, who was just sworn in to Congress last weekend, read from prepared remarks and, at one point, cited the Nazi leader to make an incredibly trite, and clichéd point that numerous other cultural figures have made over the years, including Whitney Houston. “We should be unashamed to represent our values. The family is foundational to the stability of our country,” Miller said. “Each generation has the responsible to teach the next generation. If we win a few elections, we’re still going to be losing unless we win the hearts and minds of our children. This is the battle. Hitler was right on one thing, whoever...

    Madison Summers October 2, 2020 0 Comments First Lady Melania Trump did not hold back when sharing her thoughts about the White House “Christmas stuff and decoration.” In newly surfaced audio shared by Trump’s former close friend and adviser Stephanie Winston Wolkoff during her CNN interview on Thursday night, the first lady is heard talking about planning for the Christmas decorations at the White House. Talking to Wolkoff, Trump said in July 2018, “I’m working… my a** off on the Christmas stuff, that you know, who gives a f**k about the Christmas stuff and decorations?

    Photo via Florida Department of CorrectionsAfter serving 37 years in Florida State Prison for murder and rape, a Tampa man has been cleared of the crimes by recently discovered DNA evidence, says the Innocence Project and the Hillsborough State Attorney’s office. Today, Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren filed a motion to free Robert Dubois, who he says was wrongfully convicted of the murder of 19-year-old Barbara Grams, who was found beaten to death behind a dental practice in 1983. “Wrongful convictions erode the foundation of our justice system. For 37 years, we’ve had an innocent man locked up in prison—while the real perpetrator was never held accountable for this heinous crime,” State Attorney Warren said in a statement. “The family of the victim, Barbara Grams, deserves to have the truth, and this new evidence helps reveal that truth to all of us.” Today's announcement comes after an 11-month investigation from the Innocence Project and the Conviction Review Unit of the State Attorney’s Office, found previously “lost” DNA evidence that determined Dubois was in fact not a forensic match with evidence...

    Newly released records from New York City's police watchdog agency on Monday show Daniel Pantaleo, the officer fired for the 2014 chokehold death of Eric Garner, was the subject of seven misconduct complaints in the years prior Newly released records from New York City's police watchdog agency show Daniel Pantaleo, the officer fired for the 2014 chokehold death of Eric Garner, was the subject of seven misconduct complaints in the years prior. Pantaleo's complaint history was disclosed on Monday following a recent change in state law that makes police disciplinary files public. The records show Pantaleo was the subject of seven misconduct complaints prior to Garner's death, according to his file from the Civilian Complaint Review Board.   Pantaleo's complaint history was first revealed by the now-defunct website Think Progress in 2017 amid a legal dispute over whether the records could be made public.  At the time, state law shielded police personnel files from disclosure. A review board investigator resigned after being identified as the leaker. The cloak-and-dagger approach to the records changed this month when state lawmakers, spurred by protests over George Floyd's...
    A news crew from Fox's Seattle affiliate shared a video Wednesday from earlier this month of protesters verbally and physically attacking them after law enforcement officials abandoned the East Police Precinct. The group of protesters who set up a six-block perimeter around the precinct had initially has designated the area the "Capitol Hill Occupied (or Organized) Protest," or CHOP.

    A white Mississippi police officer who fatally shot a black man during a 2015 car chase was captured on bodycam video apparently using a racial slur to describe him, according to newly released evidence. Officer Canyon Boykin fatally shot 26-year-old father Ricky Ball following the chase in Columbus, north east of Jackson, back in October 2015.  The evidence related to the case was only made public over the weekend and comes just weeks after Mississippi's Attorney General dropped a manslaughter charge against the officer.  The case was dropped 'with prejudice' on May 28, meaning it can't be revived, after Republican Attorney General Lynn Fitch said there was evidence Boykin had shot Ball in self-defense.  The decision to drop the charge prompted protests in the same week that George Floyd demonstrations erupted across the United States. Ball's killing also sparked demonstrations in Columbus, a mostly black city of 23,000 in northeast Mississippi, at the time of his death.  Officer Canyon Boykin fatally shot 26-year-old Ricky Ball following the chase in Columbus, north east of Jackson, back in October 2015. Boykin was indicted by...
