  1. The X Factor contestant, who finished sixth in 2012, was tipped for great things after her debut single Ghost shot straight to No1. ARCHANT 12 Ella Henderson has been dropped by record label Syco The track sold more than 1.2million units here and more than a million in the US, while her debut album Chapter One went platinum. But four years on, the party is over. A spokesman for the record label confirmed Ella’s exit, saying: “Syco and Ella Henderson are parting company. “We wish Ella all the best for the future and thank her for her hugely successful contribution over the years.” My sources say bosses lost faith in Ella as her follow-up album hit delay after delay. GETTY - CONTRIBUTOR 12 Ella scored a big hit with single Ghost One told me: “Ella has been an incredible talent for Syco. But it was felt by everyone it was time for a change of direction. “It is four years since she released her last album and it has been so stop-start since then.015 red carpet: Ella Henderson “A new beginning seemed the best option for everyone.” A second source added: “Syco bosses were delighted with Ella when she first joined the label. “But since 2014 things have been going downhill. “Her second album has been pushed back again and again but it just isn’t up to scratch. “Meetings have taken place to discuss her future . . . and the result was to let her go.” It’s a huge blow for Ella, who was once tipped to be one of the show’s biggest products. SPLASH NEWS 12 The Greatest Dancer was devised by Simon Cowell's Syco I hear other stars signed to Syco, set up by Simon Cowell are also nervously looking over their shoulders The source said: “There is something of a spring clean going on at the moment, with bosses taking a good look at all of their current artists. “Every year they take stock and make sure everyone is where they want to be. “However, this year there have been rumours other artists may be reconsidered, so there are some very nervous people around at the moment.” Watch this space. https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/5663572/sony-drop-ella-henderson/
  2. Following the high school shooting in Florida, an Alabama lawmaker is proposing legislation that would arm teachers. The bill would allow some public school teachers and administrators to receive training and be authorized to carry a concealed weapon during the school day. Rep. Will Ainsworth of Guntersville decided to move forward with the idea after concerned school officials reached out to him following the shooting in Florida that killed 17 people. http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/national/proposed-bill-would-allow-teachers-to-carry-guns-at-school-in-alabama
  3. “Many in legacy media love mass shootings,” Loesch said after walking on stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference to a standing ovation. “I’m not saying you love the tragedy, but you love the ratings. Crying white mothers are ratings gold.” Her comments echoed a video that NRATV released Wednesday, which slammed the mainstream media for being the “casting call for the next mass shooting.” Loesch also said she is debuting a one-hour show on NRATV next month to combat the mainstream media. Her comments at CPAC were also reminiscent of some President Donald Trump has made. The president regularly claims that news outlets such as CNN and NBC News spread mistruths about him and his administration in order to boost ratings. https://www.yahoo.com/news/nra-apos-dana-loesch-apos-154204932.html It is disgusting someone would say something like this. These conservatives are disgusting trash

  5. WELL I GUESS IT'S TIME TO FUCKING USE BING https://9to5google.com/2018/02/15/google-view-image-button-removed/ Earlier this month, Google and Getty Images announced a licensing deal that would allow Getty images in Google Images. As a result of this deal, Google agreed to make some fundamental changes to Images in an effort to reduce piracy, and the first of those has gone live today. In addition to Getty Images working with Google “to improve attribution of our contributors’ work,” the deal included removal of the “view image” button next to results in Google Images — which would take users directly to the photo’s web URL. As of today, the button is gone. Clearly Getty believed that this “view image” button led to rampant piracy of copyrighted content — including its own. While that’s surely true, the removal of the button is also an inconvenience to users who are looking to download legitimately free images from the web. Fortunately, there’s an easy way around this — albeit one that most normal users probably won’t realize. If you right-click the image in Google Images, you can choose “Copy Image Address” in Chrome (or the similar button in other browsers), which you can then paste into the address bar to go the same page that “view image”previously took you to. While this may be annoying for end users looking to download (or steal, depending on who you are) images from the web, it seems like a necessary move to push users to the full website where images can be found and where copyright and usage information is more readily available. Altogether, this is probably a good change for photographers, publishers, and Getty alike.
  6. So I found an article about school shootings stating more than 200 school shootings have happened in the last 5 yrs with over 400 people being shot at. This is crazy. When will action happen? How many kids have to die before someone finally makes a change? When a gunman killed 20 first graders and six adults with an assault rifle at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, it rattled Newtown, Conn., and reverberated across the world. Since then, there have been at least 239 school shootings nationwide. In those episodes, 438 people were shot, 138 of whom were killed. The data used here is from the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit that began tracking school shootings in 2014, about a year after Sandy Hook. The shootings have taken place at sporting events and in parking lots, cafeterias, hallways and classrooms. A shooting took place Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., about an hour northwest of Miami. As of Wednesday night, 17 people had been killed and the number of people injured was unknown. Sixteen of the 239 shootings shown below can be classified as mass shootings, events in which four or more people are shot. On average, there have been about five school shootings each month, including episodes that were not mass shootings. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/02/15/us/school-shootings-sandy-hook-parkland.html

  8. Rita Ora has reportedly joined the cast of the upcoming Pokemon movie Detective Pikachu. The live-action film is based on the gaming franchise of the same name. Late last year, it was revealed that Ryan Reynolds will star as Detective Pikachu himself with a motion-capture performance. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has claimed that pop star Rita Ora has signed up to the project, though specific details surrounding her character are unknown. This latest casting news follows Ora’s role in Fifty Shades Freed, in which she portrayed Christian Grey’s sister, Mia. Ora also teamed up with former One Directioner Liam Payne on the film’s soundtrack with the single ‘For You’.

  9. Nineteen people were killed when a double-decker bus crashed Saturday in the Tai Po area of Hong Kong, according to Hong Kong police. The accident left at 65 people injured, police said Sunday. Images from the scene showed the passenger bus lying on its side. The top of the bus appeared to have been torn off, local media reported Police said Sunday the driver of the bus, a 30-year-old man, was arrested on dangerous driving charges and was being detained as the investigation continues. Hong Kong's double-decker buses can accommodate around 140 seated and standing passengers, depending upon the model. Tai Po is in Hong Kong's New Territories on the mainland. The bus crash happened near a large horse racecourse where special arrangements had been made due to expected heavy traffic. https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/10/asia/hong-kong-deadly-bus-crash/index.html
  10. Jordan Peele wants to thank fans for their support of Get Out by getting them into screenings of the film for free. The movie written and directed by Peele, which received four Oscar nods, will be shown on President's Day at select AMC Theaters at 7 p.m. There are 55 locations participating, according to a press release from Universal issued to USA TODAY, including theaters in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, Philadelphia, San Diego, Washington, D.C. and more. "It's been a year since Get Out opened in theaters," the Writers Guild Award-winning Peele said in a video shared via Get Out's official Twitter account. "As a small thank you to the fans who made the film a success, Universal and I wanted to give something back." Peele believes his thriller starring Daniel Kaluuya is a movie that benefits from the amenities of a theater. "It's all about that theatrical experience, so please go, enjoy it with other people, get ready to use your voices," he said. "I don't care if you've seen it one time, two times, three times, if you bring somebody who's never seen it and you watch them watch it — whatever. You get to enjoy a free screening of Get Out this President's Day." So how can you get your hands on the free tickets? They will be doled out on a first come, first served basis according the website that has been set up for the anniversary event. Tickets can be picked up from participating AMC locations when box offices open Monday. (Be sure to bring a valid I.D. to get your ticket.) The website will also help you locate a participating theater near you. https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/entertainthis/2018/02/14/you-can-see-get-out-free-select-amc-theaters-presidents-day/336364002/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=amp&utm_campaign=speakabl
  11. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/school-shooting-at-marjory-stoneman-douglas-high-in-florida-live-updates/ Spoiler below has Snapchat video from inside the school. This footage is not hugely graphic, but it's very loud and intense. You probably shouldn't watch it if you can't handle that kind of thing. I leave that up to your discretion.

  13. (CNN)All 71 people aboard a Saratov Airlines plane died when the plane crashed southeast of Moscow on Sunday, Russian state news agency Tass reported. Those on board included 65 passengers and six crew members, the Russian news agency Interfax said. The plane went down in Ramenskoye District, in the Moscow region, the Russian emergency ministry told CNN. https://www.google.de/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/02/11/europe/russia-plane-crash/index.html
  14. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau corrected a young woman on the wording of her question, suggesting to rephrase from "mankind" to "peoplekind". The questioner, who was from the World Mission Society Church of God, wanted to ask Trudeau to take a look at restrictions on the ability of charitable religious organizations to volunteer: And that’s when the feminist prime minister stepped in with a condescending smile: The comment caused a global gale of mocking laughter such that Trudeau was forced to say that his interruption was a bad joke and not a violation of the “inclusivity” that he values so highly. However, things got worse when Trudeau's adivisor, Gerald Butts, stepped in. Butts likes to spend a lot of time on Twitter trashing and blocking anyone who disagrees with his boss. His response to the general hilarity incurred by his boss’s stupid “peoplekind” comment apparently really got his goat, because shortly, he tweeted out this: Got that? If you think that Trudeau’s peoplekind “joke” was stupid, funny, or just ridiculous—you’re a Nazi. Hilariously, it was Piers Morgan who decided he’d had enough of Butt-hurt attempting to call journalists who laughed at Trudeau Nazis, noting that: “a) I’m not a Nazi. b) It wasn’t a joke. c) If you’re one of @JustinTrudeau’s chief advisors, no wonder he’s making so many gaffes.” He then followed that up by pointing out that, “The whole world laughed at your boss & his absurdly politically correct, virtue-signalling #peoplekind nonsense. If you choose to condemn everyone who did so as being a Nazi, then I politely suggest you’re a complete & utter halfwit.” He ended by referring to Butts as Source: https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/trudeaus-top-advisor-those-who-laughed-at-peoplekind-comment-are-nazis

  18. Gaming addiction is to be listed as a mental health condition for the first time by the World Health Organisation. Its 11th International Classification of Diseases (ICD) will include the condition "gaming disorder". The draft document describes it as a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behaviour so severe that it takes "precedence over other life interests". Some countries had already identified it as a major public health issue. Many, including the UK, have private addiction clinics to "treat" the condition. The last version of the ICD was completed in 1992, with the new guide due to be published in 2018. The guide contains codes for diseases, signs and symptoms and is used by doctors and researchers to track and diagnose disease. It will suggest that abnormal gaming behaviour should be in evidence over a period of at least 12 months "for a diagnosis to be assigned" but added that period might be shortened "if symptoms are severe". Symptoms include: impaired control over gaming (frequency, intensity, duration) increased priority given to gaming continuation or escalation of gaming despite negative consequences Source + read more: BBC
