Donald Trump Finally Met His Match In The Handshake Stakes




There’s a certain art to dealing with a Donald Trump handshake.


And Tajikistan’s strongman president, Emomali Rahmon, appears to have gotten it down to a tee.


The authoritarian ruler didn’t let the U.S president’s reputation as a fierce hand-grabber faze him when the pair met at a summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Sunday.


In fact, he had the upper hand — as this viral clip shows:





Perhaps Rahmon analyzed footage of Trump’s February meeting with Japan’s prime minster Shinzō Abe to see how it shouldn’t be done:






Or maybe he studied Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s technique






 


Or he  might have just read HuffPost’s piece on how to defend yourself from a Trump-style handshake.


Here’s how Twitter users responded to Rahmon’s handshake encounter:

Suspect in Arizona's 'Serial Street Shooter' Case Is Arrested






A 23-year-old Phoenix man has been arrested in connection with a wave of shootings that terrorized the Arizona city in 2016 and left at least nine people dead, authorities said Monday.


Aaron Juan Saucedo, who was already in police custody on a murder charge, was rebooked Monday into the Maricopa County Jail on 26 additional felonies, including multiple counts of homicide, aggravated assault and drive-by shooting, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said during a press conference.


“This case plagued our community for more than a year ... and left behind a trail of victims that included mothers, sons, brothers, sisters and families still mourning the loss of their loved ones,” Williams said. 


Before mentioning Saucedo’s name, Williams described each of the attacks and read the names of the nine people he is accused of killing.


“Our hearts go out to the surviving families,” she said. “Today we are closer to providing them the justice they deserve.” 






Saucedo was arrested last month in an investigation of the 2015 murder of 61-year-old Raul Romero, according to 3TV/CBS 5. He pleaded not guilty Friday to that first-degree murder charge.


Investigators initially believed that a shooter or shooters were responsible for seven killings in the Phoenix area. But authorities said Monday they have linked Saucedo, who had recently been identified as a “person of interest” in the serial shootings, to 12 incidents and nine deaths, the first being the murder of Romero in August 2015.


The case against Saucedo remains open, officials said. No motive has been identified, police said. 


Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton called Monday “a good day in the city of Phoenix.”


“It is our residents and our law enforcement working together that has help put a community at ease and help provide closure to the victims of these terrible crimes,” Stanton said. 


In addition to Romero, Saucedo is suspected of killing Jesse Olivas, 22;  Diego Verdugo Sanchez, 21; Krystal Annette White, 55; Horacio De Jesus Peña, 32; Manuel Castro Garcia, 19; Maleah Ellis, 12; Stefanie Ellis, 33; and Angela Linner, 31. Saucedo is also suspected of wounding a 16-year-old boy and a 21-year-old man, authorities said.


Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said the case has been handed over to his office for prosecution. His office will review the evidence and file charges that “will meet a reasonable likelihood of conviction,” he said. 


“That’s the goal there — to make sure that we have a case that we can prosecute successfully that will hold responsible individuals accountable for the harm they cause to our community,” Montgomery said. “And make no mistake, for the pain that both surviving victims and surviving family members of victims have suffered, this may bring them justice but will not bring them perfect justice.”

Driver Detained At White House After Alleged Car Bomb Threat


A man is in custody after he reportedly drove up to a White House security checkpoint on Saturday night and claimed to have a bomb in his vehicle, law enforcement officials told CNN.


A

from the Secret Service confirmed that an individual drove his vehicle to the checkpoint at 11:05 p.m. After contact with uniformed agents, the Secret Service detained the individual and “declared his vehicle suspicious.”


The statement said a criminal investigation was ongoing, but did not mention any explosive devices.










Ryan Nobles, a CNN reporter who was on the scene, said that a robot and bomb squad member were 

of the suspect’s car “
” after the incident began.


Shortly after midnight, Nobles tweeted that the suspect’s car was still running and 

.










This was the second security incident at the White House that day.


On Saturday afternoon, Secret Service agents arrested an individual who reportedly jumped over a bike rack in an attempt to reach the White House, CBS News reported. The individual was apprehended before reaching the White House fence along Pennsylvania Avenue.


President Donald Trump was in Florida at the time of both incidents.






Last week, a man identified as Jonathan T. Tran was arrested after he climbed over a fence and reached the exterior of the White House carrying two cans of Mace and a letter for Trump, according to the Washington Post.


Tran reportedly spent 15 minutes on White House grounds before he was apprehended.

Freaky February Heat Waves Trigger More Chills Over Climate Change






A bonkers February with stretches of extremely high temperatures mixed periodically with plunging mercury is the latest chilling warning about global warming.


Single-day record highs as well as multiple-day heat waves broke more than 248 month-to-date records for February in spots across the nation, according to the National Center for Environmental Information. 


Temperatures in Oklahoma, the home state of new Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt, a climate change skeptic, nearly reached triple digits earlier this month. The town of Magnum hit an all-time record Feb. 11 of 99 degrees, more than 40 degrees above the average February high.






The rest of the Southern Plains also broke records, and the Texas towns of Midland, Lubbock and Wichita Falls all racked up temperatures in the 90s the same week. A cold snap followed the heat wave in the region, with temperatures dropping as much as 50 degrees. 


Milwaukee’s 71 degrees this Wednesday was the highest temperature ever recorded in the state in the winter. (The typical high temperature for the day is 34.5 degrees). It was also the fourth time in February the city hit temperatures over 60 degrees, another all-time record for the state, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. 


Boston hit 68 degrees Thursday, busting its previous highest temperature of 65 degrees in 1990. All-time record highs for the month of February were broken Thursday in Burlington (63 degrees) and Montpelier, Vermont (63 degrees).


Denver broke its third record of the month last Thursday, topping out at 75 degrees, a full 5 degrees hotter than the date’s previous record, according to the National Weather Service. Snow was back a week later Friday.






Unseasonably warm days before cold snaps can have a devastating impact on the environment. Trees and flowers can blossom early in the warn weather, and the buds can then freeze and wither in following cold weather.


The freaky February is expected to continue with more of the same with dozens of new broken records.

Parents Apparently Overdose At Home, Baby Daughter Starves To Death Days Later

After two young parents died of apparent drug overdoses in their Pennsylvania home, their baby died of starvation in her bassinet some four days later, according to authorities.


Summer Chambers, five months old, and her parents Jason Chambers, 27, and Chelsea Cardaro, 19, were all found dead on Thursday in the family’s home in the Kernville section of Johnstown, a town about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh, the Tribune-Democrat reported.

— Daniel Hamburg (@DHamburgReports)



Investigators who found drugs on the scene believe the parents died of heroin overdoses within minutes of each other, though autopsy results are still pending, Cambria County District Attorney Kelly Callihan said Friday.


A friend of the couple found their bodies about a week after their deaths. Summer, discovered in a second-floor bedroom, had also died by then. Autopsy results confirmed the baby had died of starvation and dehydration.


“It was hard going in there and being the one to see them like that,” the friend, James Grant, told local station WAJC-TV. “They cared for their daughter. For two flawed people, they did their best to hold it together.”



Chambers had overdosed before in November, but medical personnel revived him, according to Callihan. Authorities allowed the baby to stay in the home. 


A representative from Children and Youth Services met with the parents “with the child present at the residence,” said Callihan. “They checked out the house, and it was appropriate to a child living there. There was plenty of food and the child seemed well taken care of,” she added.


Since both parents died at approximately the same time, no one was left to alert authorities or care for the baby, according to Johnstown Police Captain Chad Miller. “Being from out of town, not having anybody in town, it was too long for anybody to notice that they were missing,” he said. 


Callihan said the tragedy “illustrates the ongoing issues that we’re having with overdoses” in the area. 


“If you are addicted, if you’re using heroin and you have children, you’re endangering their lives,” Callihan said. “You need to get help for your children.”


Heroin deaths in the U.S. are skyrocketing. Last year, for the first time in more than 15 years, heroin caused more deaths than gun homicides, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Police Release Man Suspected Of Killing Joe McKnight


A man suspected of shooting and killing former National Football League player Joe McKnight in a possible case of road rage in a suburb of New Orleans was released from custody Friday without charge, police said.


The suspect, 54-year-old Ronald Gasser, was taken into custody after Thursday’s shooting around 3 p.m. local time in Terrytown.

— NOLA.com (@NOLAnews)



McKnight, 28, was pronounced dead at the scene, suffering from “multiple gunshot wounds,” Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Department said in a statement on Thursday.


McKnight played for the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs. After 2014, his last NFL season, he had played as a running back in the Canadian Football League.


Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said at a news conference on Friday that it was premature to draw conclusions about the shooting and that the investigation would continue.


The Jefferson Parish District Attorney declined to comment.


Normand said his office had been publicly criticized for releasing Gasser, who is white, in the shooting of McKnight, a black football player who had a five-year career in the NFL. 





“I’ve been accused of dropping the ball and doing this and doing that because we released Gasser last evening,” Normand said. “We will leave no stone unturned.”


Normand added that “everybody wants to make this about race. This isn’t about race.”


The hashtag #JoeMcKnight was among the top-trending topics on Twitter in the United States as many social media users voiced shock and outrage.


“I don’t get it,” wrote Antonio Cromartie, McKnight’s teammate during his time with the Jets. “How in hell do you release someone who killed my brother.”


Rex Ryan, who coached McKnight for three seasons with the Jets, said in a written statement released by the Buffalo Bills, the team he now coaches, that the running back’s death was “heartbreaking.”


“He was always determined to get better - better as a football player and as a man - and I thought he did that.”

Nick Gordon Found Legally Responsible For Death Of Bobbi Kristina Brown




Nick Gordon was found legally responsible for the July 2015 death of longtime girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown on Friday, multiple reports confirm.


The Brown estate filed a $50 million wrongful death suit against Gordon shortly after the death of Bobbi Kristina. The suit alleged that the daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, who was found unconscious in January 2015, had been in an altercation with her boyfriend, who put her in a bathtub and injected her with a “toxic cocktail” of drugs. 


The 22-year-old was placed in a medically induced coma and succumbed to her injuries six months later.


The suit, which was first filed last June, also alleged that Gordon stole more than $11,000 from Brown’s account after she was found unresponsive in January, and accused Gordon of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, unjust enrichment and conversion. According to E!, Brown’s father Bobby also became a plaintiff in the suit as of May 2016.


Gordon neglected to show up to court on two separate occasions, meaning anything alleged by Brown’s conservator in the suit against him was admitted through omission, according to Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford, per NBC.

“We have said all along that we believed Nick Gordon was responsible for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown. This judgment confirms our belief. Mr. Gordon had every opportunity to appear in Court and attempt to clear his name. He declined,” said a statement to E! News from Brown’s father’s legal team.


Still, Gordon hasn’t been criminally charged in Brown’s death.


Her father also spoke out in light of the judge’s decision, indicating he was pleased with the news while also expressing his grief, according to NBC.


“Today’s judgment tells me it was Nick Gordon,” he said. “Now I need to process all the emotions I have and learn on God to get me and my family through this.”

Syrian Boy With Meningitis Evacuated From Besieged Town

For nearly a month, 11-year-old Yaman Ezzedine has been suffering from horrible pain caused by meningitis that his doctors in Madaya, Syria, lack the equipment and medicine to treat. 


Madaya is under siege by the Syrian government, so Yaman’s family in Syria and the United States have pleaded for help from aid organizations and lawmakers so he could leave the town to get treatment elsewhere.  


On Friday, their prayers were finally answered as the Syrian Arab Red Crescent evacuated Yaman and 12 other children out of the besieged town and took them to Damascus for needed medical attention, Yaman’s doctor said. 


The news came less than 24 hours after The WorldPost first reported on Yaman’s condition.   



The Syrian Arab Red Crescent said in a tweet that it was evacuating a total of “36 humanitarian cases” from Madaya and two government-held towns, Kafraya and Fuaa, in northwestern province of Idlib.


A local Syrian doctor, Mohamed Darwich, who had diagnosed Yaman, told The WorldPost that Yaman was among those evacuated to Damascus to receive treatment, along with children suffering from malnutrition and two babies with blood poisoning, according to AFP.  



#Breaking :@SYRedCrescent is evacuating 36 #humanitarian case from #Madaya , #Kafarya & #Foaa #ShareHumanity pic.twitter.com/EVvIreZM2D

— Syrian Red Crescent (@SYRedCrescent)



Yaman’s uncle, Yousif Jabir, who lives in Allentown, Pennsylvania, has been appealing to local organizations for help. He said he was overcome with emotion at the news. “I am not able to express what I want to say from my heart and how much gratitude I have,” Jabir said. 


Yaman’s mother, Khawala Jabir, said Friday from Madaya that she only wished she could go with her son to Damascus. “But I am very thankful,” she said.


For Khawala Jabir and others in Madaya, a rural town on the outskirts of Damascus, starvation and a severe lack of medical and humanitarian aid are a part of daily life. 


An estimated 40,000 residents have been affected by food and medicine shortages in the town. The starvation and blockades persists despite multiple U.N. Security Council resolutions aimed at ensuring the delivery of aid to those in need, regardless of who controls the territory.


There are 4.5 million people who live in regions of Syria that are hard to reach for aid groups, 400,000 of whom live in besieged areas, according to the United Nations.

Dallas Police Search Headquarters Garage After Threat Against Department


DALLAS ― SWAT teams swarmed a parking garage at Dallas Police Department headquarters on Saturday, following reports of a

The police department was on high alert Saturday following a threat to harm officers. The nature and origin of that declaration were unclear, but the department said it had received an “anonymous threat against law enforcement across the city and has taken precautionary measures.”

As officers focused on the search at department headquarters, reporters and the public were pushed back, and news teams were asked to cut their live feeds.



Witnesses suggested that police were searching for a masked man, although officials did not confirm that. Early media reports also suggested that shots had been fired, but police later said

The city of Dallas was already on edge this weekend over the sniper attack Thursday night. Five officers had been killed and seven more wounded when a lone gunman opened fire at a protest over police violence. The shooting topped off a difficult and sorrowful week in which the country watched videos of two black men shot to death by police in other states.

India Temple Fire Leaves Scores Dead

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - A huge fire swept through a temple in southern India early on Sunday, killing more than 60 people and injuring 200 gathered for a fireworks display to mark the start of the Hindu new year.


Thousands of people were packed into the temple and the narrow lanes around it in the southern state of Kerala for the display that began at midnight and went on for hours.

One of the crackers fell on a shed where the fireworks were stored, setting off the fire, local television reported. The temple is located in Kollam, about 70 km from the state capital Thiruvananthapuram.


"More than 60 people have died, that is the information which we have so far," state home minister Ramesh Chennithala said.


So powerful were the fireworks that some parts of the temple building had chipped and a bulldozer were trying to clear the area of the debris.


State health authorities said many of the injured had been driven to the state capital as hospitals in Kollam were stretched.
