A daredevil plummeted to his death during a risky stunt near the top of a 62-story building in China, according to new reports. Wu Yongning, 26, who called himself “China’s First Rooftopper,” plunged from the Huayuan International Centre in Changsha, the capital of Hunan province in central China, on Nov. 8, AsiaWire reported. A month later, Yongning’s girlfriend and family members confirmed his death. A viral video clip, which racked up more than 15 million views on Chinese social media, shows Yongning - who had already reached the roof of the skyscraper - lowering himself over the edge of the building to do a pull-up stunt. But when he tried to hoist himself back up, he struggled for a few
On what would have been Landon's fifth birthday, his mom, Jillian Johnson, managed to sideline her grief to speak out about the death of her baby boy. Jillian has struggled with wanting to share what happened to Landon for a long time, but feared what others would say and how she would be judged.
An east Tennessee middle-schooler is speaking out after an emotional Facebook video about being bullied. In the widely-shared video, Keaton Jones describes how fellow students poured milk on him and stuffed food in his clothes. Support in the form of comforting messages flooded in for the student over the weekend.

Asked whose idea it was to make the video, Keaton said, "It
Anthony Bourdain is publicly processing the Mario Batali allegations with empathy, grief and a self-described guilty conscience. "It's Batali. And it's bad," Bourdain tweeted on Monday morning as the news broke online. After a female chef called the news "the most wonderful day of the year for those who have been hurt by Batali," Bourdain replied, "I wish that were true but in this case, I can assure you, from women talking to me with first hand stories, it’s not wonderful at all." He continued, "I’ve been sitting on stories that were not mine to tell. And feeling sick and guilty as f--k I hadn’t heard them before."
Thursday’s the day that the Trump administration will overturn former President Obama’s rules protecting consumers from greedy telecom companies manipulating internet access and pricing. I got a preview of what’s to come over the weekend as my Spectrum internet bill soared by 20% - and as I encountered the take-it-or-leave-it policy imposed by Spectrum’s owner, Charter Communications, which purchased Time Warner Cable last year. The Republican-controlled Federal Communications Commission is expected to vote along party lines this week to end net neutrality. That’s the policy ensuring broadband providers such as phone and cable companies can’t give preferential treatment to anyone - their own
The family of the alleged ISIS-inspired Port Authority bomber said they were “heartbroken” by the attack on Monday and blasted law enforcement agencies for what they claimed were heavy-handed tactics by investigators. “We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family,” said the statement read by Albert Fox Cahn, the Legal Director for the NY Chapter Council for Islamic Relations. “But we’re also outraged by the behavior of the law enforcement officials who held children as small as 4 years old out in the cold and who pulled a teenager out of high school classes to interrogate him without lawyer, without his
China’s military sent fighter jets, bombers and surveillance aircrafts to patrol the self-governed island of Taiwan on Monday. The “island encirclement patrol” took place after a senior Chinese diplomat threatened that Beijing would invade Taiwan if any U.S. warships made port visits there. Aircrafts including H-6K bombers, Su-30 and J-11 fighter jets, and spy jets were all part of the aerial mission in which the jets flew over the Miyako Strait in Japan’s south and the Bashi Channel between Taiwan and the Philippines.
