Breaking News: 8 Dead, 150 Hurt As Passenger Train Collide In Germany








BAD AIBLING, Germany — Two commuter trains crashed head-on Tuesday morning in southern Germany, killing at least eight people and injuring some 150, police said.

Police spokesman Stefan Sonntag told The Associated Press the two regional trains crashed before 7 a.m. on the single line that runs near Bad Aibling, in Bavaria, and that several wagons overturned.

Fifty of those hurt have serious injuries, he said. It took hours to reach some of the injured in the wreckage.

The rail line is commonly used by commuters heading to work in Munich, and would normally also carry children traveling to school, but they are currently on holiday, the dpa news agency reported.

U.S. JURORS AWARD $23.1 MILLION TO BLACK MAN SHOT BY POLICE CHIEF







A federal jury awarded $23.1 million on Wednesday to a 22-year-old black man who was unarmed when he was shot and paralyzed by a sheriff’s deputy, but Florida lawmakers will have to approve any award above $200,000.

The six-woman, two-man jury ruled after 3 1/2 hours of deliberation that Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Sgt. Adams Lin violated Dontrell Stephens’ civil rights when he shot him in September 2013.

Lin, who had stopped Stephens for riding his bicycle into traffic, testified that he shot him four times because he reached for his waistband with his left hand and then flashed a dark object that he thought was a small handgun.

Stephens testified that he was raising his hands when Lin opened fire for no reason. Video from the dashboard camera in Lin’s patrol car showed Stephens’ left hand was empty and a cellphone was in his right hand.

Why Do Public Fund Looters Flee Abroad?





I find it strange and absurd that those who are brave enough to steal from the nation flee abroad for safety against possible prosecution.
The illusion of safety in a foreign land drives the majority of hefty thieves out of this country to seek refuge in unfriendly countries to Nigerians, but for the money.
My stand is simple: if you are bold enough to steal from the public, be bold enough to stay and face the consequences.
Another irritating dimension is when large funds are stolen from Nigeria, deposited through a proxy in a foreign bank account, and seized as being laundered, everyone loses: Nigerians, the thief in question.
There have been cases where looters of public funds, in sheer desperation and naivety, get themselves jailed abroad. James Ibori, the former governor of Delta State, has been wasting away in a British jail for the past six years. He was sentenced to a prison term of thirteen years in 2012. The laundered monies were seized, and he will be deported to Nigeria empty handed after his release.

Kanye West Ends Feud With Wiz Khalifa

But on Tuesday, Kanye took to Twitter to say they had finally settled their differences.
“Me and Wiz spoke yesterday. Great convo. All positive," he shared with his 18 million followers.

SHELL TO CUT 10,000 JOBS






Royal Dutch Shell has confirmed the cutting of 10,000 jobs amid its steepest fall in annual profits for 13 years.

It made $1.8bn (£1.23bn) for the fourth quarter of the year, compared with a $4.2bn profit for the same period the year before.

Full-year 2015 earnings were $3.8bn, compared with $19bn in 2014, the BBC reports.

The oil firm indicated it would report a massive drop in profits two weeks ago and said it would cut 10,000 jobs, partly thanks to its takeover of BG.

RED DEVILS GO GOAL CRAZY (MAN UNITED 3- STOKE 0)






Wayne Rooney edged closer to Sir Bobby Charlton’s goalscoring record last night as Manchester United turned on the style.

Rooney scored his seventh goal in as many games to take his United tally to 244, just five behind Sir Bobby’s long-standing club record.

Louis van Gaal’s side had not scored a first-half goal in 11 games at Old Trafford but plundered two inside 23 minutes against Stoke, through Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.

Jay Z's Company Sues Rita Ora: You Owe Us Over $2 Million





Roc Nation, the music label run by Jay Z, is now suing Rita Ora.
The label claims it signed Rita in 2008 when she was an unknown and invested millions in her career. In return she had to deliver 5 albums, but the label says it only got one.

As we previously reported ... Rita filed a lawsuit back in December claiming she had a bunch of new music for her second album but the label hadn't released it, instead focusing on repping pro athletes.
But according to Roc Nation's lawsuit, the label has already spent more than $2.3 million marketing her second LP and the point of the lawsuit is to get the money back.
There's another twist ... Ora's attorney, Howard King, claims Jay Z;s  already promised to release Rita from her contract ... so the lawsuit will probably just go away.

However, on Rita's side:

Adele Tells Donald Trump To Stop Using Her Music On The Campaign Trail






Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has been playing Adele's music at his rallies without her permission. Now she's putting a stop to that.

At a rally in Oklahoma, "Rolling in the Deep" played after Sarah Palin's impassioned speech. Trump also used the "Skyfall" theme at an event in Ohio.

Fans tweeted their outrage, urging the British musician to ban Palin and Trump from using her music.

Adele has made it a point since 2011 to stay out of politics, but now her team is taking steps to ensure Trump no longer uses her music.

“Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning,” Adele's spokesperson told the Independent.

Chelsea Captain John Terry Quit The Blues







John Terry has confirmed that he will leave Chelsea at the end of the season.

The Blues’ skipper’s current deal runs into the end of June, but the club have decided not to offer him a renewal.

Speaking after the 5-1 win over MK Dons, Terry said: "To be honest, I was in last week before the Arsenal game and it’s not going to be extended.

"It’s my last run in the FA Cup so I want to make it a good one. It’s a big season for me and I want to push on - not just in this competition but in the Premier League as well.

I knew before the Arsenal game so mentally I’ve kind of accepted it. We just have to move.

"They said that when the new manager comes in, things might change. It’s a no at the minute. I needed to know now like I have done every January and sometimes it takes a couple of months to get done. Unfortunately it was a no. It’s not going to be a fairytale ending,

I’m not going to retire at Chelsea. It’s going to be elsewhere which it took me a couple of days to get over.
