Hedge Fund Exec Swindled by Bernie Madoff Jumps to His Death From NYC Hotel






A hedge fund executive who lost billions to notorious Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff jumped to his death Monday in an apparent suicide at a New York City hotel.
Charles Murphy apparently jumped to his death shortly after 5 p.m. at the luxurious Sofitel Hotel in midtown Manhattan. Stunned witnesses told police that they saw a man in a dark business suit leap from the 24th floor and land on a fourth floor terrace.

He was a Harvard Law School graduate who recently worked for Paulson & Co. During the 2008 Madoff scandal, he worked for the Fairfield Greenwich group, a high-stakes hedge fund that lost $7 billion in the scam.

Murphy's death is a sobering reminder that despite Madoff's 2009 conviction and 150-year prison sentence, the impact of his crimes is still reverberating in the financial world.

Trump Tweets Russia Probe 'Hoax,' Rails Against Clintons







Amid ongoing questions about the involvement of his associates with Russian officials during the campaign and about the impartiality of the Republican congressman leading one of the probes into the matter, Donald Trump went on a twitter rant Monday night, calling out an old foe -- the Clintons -- and blaming conservative Republicans for his health care defeat.

In a series of tweets, Trump questioned the actions of the House Intelligence Committee, asking why it isn't conducting a probe into the former Democratic presidential nominee and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

"Why isn't the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech money to Bill, the Hillary Russian "reset," praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!" wrote Trump in two consecutive posts.

The tweets were not the first instance in which Trump sought to blame Hillary Clinton for a deal between Russia's nuclear power agency and a Canadian company. The non-partisan fact-checking organization Politifact has rated the claim "Mostly False," citing Hillary Clinton's "lack of power to approve or reject the deal."

Russia Creates 'Unstoppable' Hypersonic Zircon Missile With Navy Destroying 4,600mph Speed






Russia claims to have created a devastating hypersonic missile that travels five times faster than the speed of sound and could rip through navy warship defences because it's too fast to stop.

The Kremlin's Zircon missile has been called "unstoppable", "unbeatable" and "undefendable" with a 4,600mph speed that only one defence system in the world can destroy – that system is owned by Russia.

The missile employs revolutionary scramjet technology to reach its hypersonic speeds whereby propulsion is created by forcing air from the atmosphere into its combustor where it mixes with on-board fuel – rather than carry both fuel and oxidizer like traditional rockets. This makes it lighter, and therefore much faster.

LIVING FOR OTHERS IS THE RULE OF NATURE





In 1892 at Stanford University, an 18-year-old student was struggling to pay his fees. He was an orphan, and not knowing where to turn for money, he came up with a bright idea. He and a friend decided to host a musical concert on campus to raise money for their education.

They reached out to the great pianist Ignacy J. Paderewski. His manager demanded a guaranteed fee of $2000 for the piano recital. A deal was struck and the boys began to work to make the concert a success.
The big day arrived. But unfortunately, they had not managed to sell enough tickets. The total collection was only $1600. Disappointed, they went to Paderewski and explained their plight. They gave him the entire $1600, plus a cheque for the balance $400. They promised to honour the cheque at the soonest possible.

·         Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka worked with Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid
·         Boro play Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in the FA Cup on Saturday
·         Karanka believes Guardiola must win the Premier League to prove he is the best
·         Middlesbrough came away with a 1-1 draw at the Etihad in November

Aitor Karanka has taunted opposite number Pep Guardiola by claiming he is not even the best boss in Manchester - and says he must win the Premier League before he can be compared to Jose Mourinho.

Middlesbrough entertain Guardiola’s Manchester City in the FA Cup quarter-final Saturday lunchtime and it appears there is no love lost between the managers.

Karanka won the Champions League three times as a player with Real Madrid - and was later assistant to Mourinho at the Bernabeu - and is a long-time adversary of Barcelona legend Guardiola.
And the Boro boss said: 'Guardiola is not the best coach in the world - the best coach in the world is Jose Mourinho.

Finders Keepers?

How honest will passers-by be when they see a woman drop a £20 note on the ground outside a busy supermarket?

Nicola Bailey was charged with theft after she picked up a £20 note in a shop in Blurton, Stoke-on-Trent, but will Kensington shoppers hand a MailOnline reporter back her dropped money? 

Alicia Watts dropped a note on the ground outside a supermarket to see how many people would return the money to her. Most people were quick to chase after her and return the money to our grateful journalist, but one couple pocketed the cash before they were confronted by her and decided to return it. 

Bailey, 23, was given a conditional discharge at Magistrates Court and ordered to pay £175 after admitting theft. She said she wishes she could turn back time.

OSCARS 2017: RED CARPET FASHION


OSCARS 2017: RED CARPET FASHION



PRESIDENT TRUMP - OSCARS GOT WHAT THEY DESERVED AFTER FOCUSING ON ME






Donald Trump's finally weighing in on the Oscars, and thinks the whole Best Picture snafu happened because the show's producers were busy throwing insults at him.
The prez says "I think they were focused so hard on politics they they didn't get the act together at the end." It was Trump's first comment on the award show and he wasted no time jabbing back at the production.
He told Breitbart News, "It didn't feel like a very glamorous evening. I've been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad."
As Trump's shots go it was pretty subtle, but sure seems like he was paying attention to Jimmy Kimmel mocking him during the show, and the epic screwup at the end.

PRICEWATERHOUSE EMPLOYEE ACCOUNTANT IS OSCAR ENVELOPE CULPRIT








This is the guy who we're told is responsible for the biggest screwup in Oscar history ... the guy who handed Warren Beatty the wrong envelope.
His name -- Brian Cullinan -- an accountant at Pricewaterhouse. He's a veteran ... 30 years at the accounting firm.
Here's the thing ... Brian was supposed to discard the spare Best Actress envelope and hand Warren Best Picture.

How Gent Spoiled Spur Europa Dream 2-3 Agg)






As Spurs chased a result against Gent that seemed to be slipping away from them, the last thing they needed was a moment of madness from a key player. Unfortunately for Tottenham, Dele Alli has history when it comes to a rush of blood. On Thursday night he added a new form of ill-discipline to his multi-tool belt, brutally hacking down Brecht Dejaegere in the 39th minute. It was the first time Alli has been sent off in his nascent career.



Tottenham crashed out of the Europa League as they failed to throw off their Wembley curse and get past Gent in the last 32. Christian Eriksen had put the home side ahead after just 10 minutes, but a Harry Kane own goal put the Belgian side level not long after, and handed Gent an away goal
