Moment two ‘drunk’ teachers stumble into the WRONG apartment and get into BED with a married couple and their young child before the homeowner chases them out into the street and is shot by one of the intruders

Surveillance footage reveals the weird moment two physical education teachers ended up in the wrong apartment after a very intoxicated night, and one even got into a bed with a married couple, resulting in a shooting that left the homeowner with a bullet wound in the back.

Following the incident on October 10 around 4 a.m., Darius Tyonne Cohen, 26, and Akkua Jamel Hallback, both 26, were fired from their jobs in the Indian River County School District in Florida.

Hallback met a woman at a bar in Vero Beach, and he and Cohen traveled to her condominium at the Preserves of Oslo, where Cohen is facing attempted murder charges.

Cohen waited outside for Hallback as he walked inside to be with the woman. Hallback left the woman’s residence and went to his car after a few hours. According to the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office, Cohen needed to use the restroom at that moment, so they returned to the woman’s apartment, but entered the wrong one.

Cohen, an Indian River Academy teacher, went to the bathroom, while Hallback, a Sebastian Elementary School teacher, climbed into bed with a guy with his wife and one of their three young children, whom he mistook for the woman.

When Cohen left the restroom, the man tried to lead Hallback out of his house, according to detectives. Sheriff Eric Flowers claimed during a news conference on Monday that he walked the men outside, when “a fight broke out” and Cohen opened fire.

It’s unknown who possessed the pistol or what happened in the moments leading up to the shooting. ‘At this point, we don’t know who [took out] the pistol,’ Flowers added.

Rockets are fired at kabul airport: Missile defense system is activated and shrapnel falls on the city as US races to withdrawal from Afghanistan

On Monday morning, local time, rockets were fired at Kabul airport, raising the prospect of terror strikes as the US rushes to finish its withdrawal from Afghanistan by the August 31 deadline.

Three kids were killed in a US drone strike targeting multiple suicide bombers’ planning an attack on Hamid Karzai International Airport, only hours after President Joe Biden cautioned of the danger of another attack after last week’s bombing that killed 170 people, including 13 Americans.

Two cars parked outside a residential building near the airport in the north of Afghanistan’s capital were blown up, according to witnesses. ISIS-K fighters were expected to use the trucks in an ‘imminent attack, according to reports.

A US official told Reuters that as many as five missiles were fired this morning, with some being intercepted by the C-RAM missile defense system, though it was unclear if all were.

Initial reports did not suggest any U.S. casualties, according to the official, but that information might change. It wasn’t evident who started them right away.

The rockets were fired from a vehicle in the city’s north, according to a security official who worked in the former Afghan administration that was overthrown by the Taliban.

Local neighbors reported witnessing rockets exploding in the air and fragments falling into the street, indicating at least one rocket had been intercepted. Smoke could be seen rising near the airport, and the sound of the airport’s missile defense system could be heard.

Witnesses told the Associated Press that missiles seemed to target Kabul’s Salim Karwan district on Monday. The blasts were quickly followed by gunfire, but it was unclear who was firing.

Katie Price’attacked’ and rushed to hospital with an eye injury as man arrested after fight at home

Katie Price was transported to the hospital with an eye injury in the early hours of Monday morning following an alleged attack.

After the incident at a home in Essex, police were contacted, and paramedics were dispatched.

According to the source, a man was arrested and is being kept in custody on suspicion of assault.

‘We were contacted by friends in the ambulance service to reports of an incident in The Meadows, Little Canfield, soon after 1.30am this morning, Monday 23 August,’ Essex police reported .

‘When we came, we discovered a woman with a facial injury that required hospital attention.

‘A short while later, a man was arrested on suspicion of assault.’ He is still being held in detention.’

‘Our inquiries are ongoing at the scene today,’ Essex police said in a statement.

‘Katie is totally upset,’ a source close to the 43-year-old told the publication.

Katie’s reps have been approached by one source for comment.

Katie’s most recent social media post was on Sunday, when she shared a photo of herself and her boyfriend Carl Woods standing with her two youngest children, Jett and Bunny.

With a heart, the image was captioned: ‘Family time.’

Russia taunts Finland by flying a military helicopter INTO its space as the Nordic country prepares to join NATO to the Kremlin’s fury

Finland’s airspace was violated by a Russian army helicopter in an apparent attempt to intimidate the country as it prepares to join NATO.

According to Finland’s Ministry of Defense, a military Mi-17 cargo chopper flew 2-3 miles inside the country’s border after 10.30 a.m. (7.30 a.m. GMT) this morning.

‘The aircraft is a Mi-17 helicopter, and the potential violation is roughly four to five kilometers deep,’ according to a ministry spokesman.

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Finland has stepped up its efforts to join the Western defensive alliance, inflaming Russian rage.

Sweden is preparing to join NATO as yet another historically neutral new member.

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began on February 24, public opinion in both countries has shifted in favor of joining.

Putin has threatened ‘consequences’ and stated that in reprisal, he will transfer Russian nuclear weapons to the Baltic Sea.

Last month, a Russian legislator warned that Finland would be requesting “the destruction of their country.”

Senator Vladimir Dzhabarov has described the decision as a “terrible tragedy.”

On April 8, Russia violated Finnish airspace for the first time this year.

The announcement came as a Finnish nuclear company announced that it had terminated a deal with Rosatom, the Russian state-owned energy company, for the delivery of a power station.

The crisis in Ukraine, according to Fennovoima, has ‘worsened the risks for the project,’ which was expected to create roughly 10% of Finland’s electorate.

In recent days, Moscow forces have flown into Swedish and Danish airspace, forcing Denmark’s Foreign Minister to call Russia’s ambassador in Copenhagen.

‘Another Russian breach of Danish airspace,’ Jeppe Kofod tweeted on May 1. In the current situation, that is utterly inappropriate and extremely concerning.’

Experts have stated that if Finland and Sweden decide to join NATO as a deterrence against invasion from their eastern neighbor, they will almost certainly be susceptible to Russian manipulation.

Motherhood and a later menopause may cut the risk of women developing dementia, study claims

Motherhood and a later menopause may lower the incidence of dementia in women.

According to a survey of more than half a million people, a lady without children is 18% more likely than a mother of two to be diagnosed with dementia.

Dementia is also 32% more probable in a woman who enters menopause naturally at the age of 47, compared to a woman who enters menopause later at the age of 50.

By exposing a woman to more estrogen during her lifetime, pregnancy, and extended child-bearing years before menopause may assist to prevent dementia.

When the hormone is at the proper amount in the body, it can aid with brain protection.

That could explain another finding: women who have previously taken the contraceptive pill are 20% less likely to develop dementia.

The tablet, which affects hormone levels, may be beneficial to the brain as well.

Researchers studied 273,000 women and 229,000 men aged 40 to 69 in the United Kingdom, who were followed for an average of nearly 12 years to determine if they got dementia.

The study focused on women, who are twice as likely as men to develop dementia and account for two-thirds of dementia fatalities.

The role of’reproductive factors,’ such as their age when they started menopause, had a baby, or went through puberty, was investigated.

‘While the risk of having dementia grows with age, we don’t yet know whether the higher rates reported in women are simply because they live longer,’ said Jessica Gong, the study’s lead author from the George Institute for Global Health in Australia.

‘However, female-specific reproductive characteristics may be able to explain some of the sex disparities,’ says the researcher.

According to the findings of the study, starting puberty earlier in life is connected to a lower incidence of dementia.

A woman who had her first period after the age of 14 was roughly a fifth more likely to acquire dementia than one who had it at the age of 13.

It’s possible that this is due to the oestrogen required to create an egg every month after puberty.

 

 

 

 

 

Manchester United and Tottenham ‘express interest in signing midfielder Konrad Laimer from RB Leipzig…with Ralf Rangnick set to recommend Austria international to Old Trafford board this summer’

According to rumors in Germany, Manchester United and Tottenham have expressed interest in signing RB Leipzig midfielder Konrad Laimer this summer.

The Austrian international’s contract with the Bundesliga club will expire in 2023 after he scored twice in nine first-half minutes and added an assist in Leipzig’s 4-1 win against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

And according to a source, his strong performances in Germany this season have piqued the interest of Spurs and United, who will be looking for deep-lying midfielders this summer.

After Leipzig’s triumphs over Spurs in their last-16 Champions League tie in 2020, the 24-year-name old’s made its way into scouts’ notes, according to the publication, and the defensive midfield role is open, with Oliver Skipp and Harry Winks the options.

Meanwhile, Laimer is said to have a fan in interim United manager Ralf Rangnick, who could nominate the Austrian to be a part of the squad’s expected upheaval this summer once the German begins his consulting job.

Paul Pogba is due to leave United on a free transfer, while Fred and Scott McTominay have struggled to make an impression, and Nemanja Matic will turn 34 in August.

Leipzig will also discuss a contract extension with Laimer, according to the source, but that discussion will not take place before the end of the season.

‘After the season, there is still enough time for negotiations…,’ Laimer told ESPN after the triumph at Signal Iduna Park, according to reports.

‘Konni performed really well today,’ said Leipzig manager Domenico Tedesco, who added: ‘Konni played very well today.’

‘I tease him because his shoots in training go all over the place except for the goal.’ But, regardless of his objectives, his performance was outstanding.’

Laimer’s double at the weekend, as well as his assist for Christopher Nkunku’s goal, gave him five goals and four assists in 31 games this season across all competitions.

Since joining RB Leipzig from RB Salzburg in 2017, he has 11 goals in 149 appearances for the club.

The 24-year-old has also represented his country on 19 occasions, scoring twice.

 

 

 

Alec Baldwin.63, and wife Hilaria,38, reveal they’re expecting a ‘surprise’ SEVENTH child together, five months after the fatal Rust shooting: ‘Our new baby is a very bright spot in our lives’

Hilaria Baldwin has announced that she is expecting her seventh child with Alec Baldwin.

On Tuesday, the 38-year-old announced the wonderful news on Instagram, sharing a video of herself and Alec, 63, playing with their six children after sharing the good news with their family

The news comes just five months after Alec’s fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his film Rust, which Hilaria seemed to allude to in her Instagram message, in which she described their unborn child as a “bright spot in their lives.”

We have an exciting up and a tremendous surprise: another Baldwinito is coming this fall,’ after several ups and downs over the past few years. Hilaria penned an essay.

‘We thought our family was complete, and we’re overjoyed with this surprise.’ I’m showing you the moment we told the kids – they’re happy, as you can see!’

‘Our new baby is a wonderful addition to our family. In these uncertain times, it’s a blessing and a gift. During my social media break, I’ve missed you… I’m back, and I’m excited to go on this wild ride we call “life” with you. ‘Our heartfelt condolences to you and your family.’

Rafael Thomas, six, Leonardo ngel Charles, five, Romeo Alejandro David, three, and Eduardo “Edu” Pao Lucas, 18 months, are among the couple’s six children: daughters Mara Luca Victoria, 13 months, and Carmen Gabriela, eight, and sons Rafael Thomas, six, Leonardo ngel Charles, five, Romeo Alejandro David, three, and Eduardo “Edu” Pao Lucas, 18 months.

Alec and ex-wife Kim Basinger have a daughter, Ireland Baldwin, who is 26 years old.

Hilaria and Alec surprised their followers last year when they announced the birth of their sixth child, barely six months after the yoga instructor gave birth to her fifth kid, Edu, after two miscarriages.

She broke the news to the world in April 2019, when she turned to social media to capture her miscarriage in a series of unusually candid images and videos, the first of which showed her posing in her underwear with the caption: ‘I want to share with you that I am most likely undergoing a miscarriage.’

Hilaria continued to film her doctor’s appointments, including sharing selfies following her D&C treatment.

 

 

 

 

 

The world’s longest commercial flight route is created as Cathay Pacific launch 10.326-mile New York- Hon Kong service avoiding Russian airspace

After modifying its New York to Hong Kong flight to avoid Russian airspace, Cathay Pacific will break a new world record for the longest commercial flight route.

Hong Kong’s national flag carrier will henceforth route flights between JFK International Airport in New York and Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) around Russia instead of through it.

It will also pass through the United Kingdom, much of continental Europe, and central Asia, avoiding Ukraine.

This indicates a 10,326-mile voyage rather than the prior 8,072-mile journey. It will be the first regular passenger flight to cross the 10,000-mile mark.

For travelers, this means a nearly 17-hour flight rather than the 15-hour one originally planned.

Bloomberg reports that Cathay Pacific revealed its plan in a document distributed to flight crews today.

According to FlightRadar 24, the new route surpasses Singapore Airlines’ 9,537-mile flight from New York to Hong Kong, which takes a touch longer at 17-and-a-half hours.

Since the invasion of Ukraine on February 24, airlines have made efforts to avoid Russian and Belarussian airspace.

Russian aircraft entering UK airspace is now a criminal offense, with violating vessels being seized.

Cathay Pacific claims that its fleet of Airbus A350-1000s can safely travel the longer New York-Hong Kong route without stopping for fuel.

However, if tailwinds over the Atlantic weaken, the path may change again in the summer, making the Pacific a preferable option.

‘We are always running contingency routings for potential events or scenarios,’ a spokeswoman said.

‘The Transatlantic alternative relies on the presence of strong seasonal tailwinds at this time of year to reduce flight duration to between 16 and 17 hours, making it more advantageous than the Transpacific route.’

Other airlines have altered flight paths to avoid Russia, such as Japan Airlines, which travels between Tokyo and London Heathrow through Alaska and Canada.

Previously, the route included crossing across much of Siberia, saving over five hours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Covid shots DO protect against long Covid and having Omicron WON’T save you from catching it again: Australia’s top doctor’s real talk as cases rise in NSW and Victoria

As instances of Covid-19 begin to rise across the country, Chief Health Officer Paul Kelly is urging Australians to receive a booster shot ahead of an expected next wave of the virus.

The federal government has signed off on a winter plan with states and territories, as the colder weather brings a Covid rise and a flu season that Australia hasn’t experienced in two years.

As booster rates stagnate, Dr. Kelly believes that more Australians need to get their third dose.

According to Commonwealth health data, one out of every three adults who are eligible for a booster shot has not yet received their third shot.

‘I think there’s some apprehension or complacency about, ‘well look, I’ve got Omicron, it wasn’t that horrible, and now I’m protected,” Dr. Kelly told the source.

‘While such assertions are largely correct, having a booster is still critical. It does provide additional protection against severe disease (and) there is growing evidence that it also provides protection against long-term Covid.’

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization is examining whether a fourth dosage will be required in susceptible populations before the winter season.

ATAGI is also looking into when children can get their booster vaccine.

Close contact isolation rules are also being reviewed and are anticipated to be loosened.

Despite an increase in cases, New Zealand’s prime minister insists the country’s trans-Tasman border would not be closed again until Australia’s gates open on April 12.

Borders can remain open, according to Jacinda Ardern, because New Zealand is coming off of its initial wave and is able to securely handle the reopening.

‘When New Zealand and Australia had their trans-Tasman bubbles, both of us were still striving to keep Covid out completely.’ ‘Now that we both have Covid, it’s a lot different,’ she told the Nine Network.

 

Jen Shah wants to hire Kim Kardashian to be part of her legal team as she fights federal charges that could land her in prison for 30 years

Jen Shah would like Kim Kardashian to represent her in court.

After being accused of orchestrating a telemarketing operation that cheated elderly people, the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum faces up to 30 years in jail.

When the matter goes to trial in federal court later this month, the former actress is insistent that she wants Kim, a fellow reality star who is studying to be a lawyer in California, to represent her.

Shah was arrested in 2021, and the arrest was captured on video for posterity on the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.

She has entered a not guilty plea to one count of wire fraud conspiracy, one count of money laundering conspiracy, and one count of impeding an official action.

‘Listen, Kim Kardashian is not yet an official member of the Shah squad legal team,’ she remarked. When I said, ‘Do we need to add Kim Kardashian to our legal team?’ they thought I was joking. I was dead serious 100 percent of the time. ‘I’m a dead a**.’

Kim is able to ‘effect change’ in the law, according to the 48-year-old TV personality, who persuaded then-President Donald Trump to award Alice Johnson a full and unconditional pardon.

‘She has been able to advocate for those who have been wrongfully accused of crimes and effect change,’ she said. They’re innocent, therefore she’s been able to join the campaign to fight for them at the White House or with the administration to have them released.’

Jen, who is married to Sharrieff Shah, the University of Utah football coach, and has two kids, Sharrieff Jr., 26, and Omar, 16, has argued that she has been ‘wrongly accused.’

‘I don’t take this lightly,’ she added in a promo for the ‘Real Housewives of Salt Lake City: After Show.’ It is my life, and more importantly, it is the life of my family. I’m more concerned about them than anything else.

‘I don’t want my children, husband, mother, or family to be affected by this, so I have to fight.’ I’m not just speaking for myself and my family; I’m speaking for everyone who has ever been falsely charged or convicted of a crime they didn’t commit.

 

 

Who could replace Putin if he is toppled in a coup? The rogues’s gallery of henchmen including spy chief who ‘approved’ Litvinenko poisoning who could assume control of Russia if president is overthrown

President Vladimir Putin’s mental soundness has been questioned in the aftermath of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Analysts believe the Russian tyrant is acting abnormally as a result of the brazen act of war and frenzied rants broadcast on state television.

His order to put Russia’s nuclear deterrent on high alert, as well as his implied threat of nuclear war if the West intervenes in Ukraine’s invasion, appeared to surprise even his own military officials.

With the stakes rising and the West putting pressure on Russia’s economy, it’s becoming more possible that Putin will be deposed in a coup.

After Vladimir Putin, Shoygu is Russia’s’second-most popular’ politician.

The defense minister of Chadan, in eastern Russia, had a key role in planning the invasion of Ukraine but was captured on camera grimacing after Putin ordered him and army leader Valery Gerasimov to put Russia’s nuclear deterrent on high alert.

Despite having no military experience, Shoygu was appointed in 2012 and presided over the annexation of Crimea in 2014.#

According to reports, Shoygu is Russia’s best military leader since Georgy Zhukov, the World War II general who destroyed Nazi Germany.

His rise to prominence would be hampered by his inextricable role in the invasion of Ukraine, though he is thought to be more pragmatic than Putin, which might mean a retreat from the country, potentially thawing relations with the West.

Ahmaud Arbery’s family celebrates outside court after his three murderers are convicted of federal hate crimes:Jury rules three white men chased and shot jogger because he was black

After a jury concluded that the three men who murdered black Georgia jogger Ahmaud Arbery did so because of his race, they were found guilty of federal hate crimes.

Travis McMichael, his father Gregory McMichael, and friend Roddy Bryan, who filmed the murder in Macon, Georgia in February 2020, were found guilty on Tuesday.

The McMichaels had already been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after being convicted of murder in a state trial, and Bryan had been sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years, but he now faces additional time due to the federal conviction.

Following the verdict, the Arbery family said that now that the criminal investigations and trials have concluded, they want to bring civil cases. They haven’t said who they’ll file charges against yet.

On Monday evening, jurors were sent to try the case, and they only deliberated for two hours.

The men had already been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Arbery.

During the trial, prosecutors presented over two dozen text conversations and social media posts in which Travis McMichael and Bryan used racist slurs and made nasty remarks about African-Americans.

The federal trial, unlike the state murder trial last year, focused mostly on the racial aspects of the crime and the obscenities the guys used against Arbery.

Arbery would have gone for a jog and made it home for Sunday supper’ if he had been white, according to federal prosecutor Bobbi Bernstein.

“They made conclusions about Ahmaud based on his skin color, which would not have happened if he had been white,” Bernstein explained.

After apologizing to the court, Bernstein detailed some of the racial slurs used by the younger McMichael to refer to Black persons in text conversations.

“Animals,” “monkeys,” “subhuman savages,” and the derogatory N-word were among the epithets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using painkilling drugs every day can increase the risk of developing tinnitus in women by 20%, study finds

According to a new study, taking over-the-counter pain medicines on a frequent basis can have unanticipated, perhaps catastrophic negative effects on a person’s hearing.

Women who take over-the-counter pain relievers like Advil or Tylenol on a weekly basis are up to 20% more likely to develop tinnitus, according to researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

Researchers discovered that younger women in the study were at a higher risk.

Tinnitus is a disorder that affects around 20 million Americans, causing them to hear sounds that aren’t there. It’s most often linked with ringing in the ears, but it can also take the form of other sounds in the environment.

For some people, the illness is debilitating and has a significant negative influence on their lives.

Overusing’safe’, easily accessible drugs, according to researchers, can still cause problems in the long run, and people should make sure they are only taking what they need.

Dr. Sharon Curhan, the main author of the study and a physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, stated in a statement, “Our findings imply that analgesic users may be at higher risk for acquiring tinnitus and may provide insight into the precipitants of this complex illness.”

‘Although these analgesics are commonly available without a prescription, they are still drugs with possible negative effects,’ says the source

The researchers obtained data from nearly 70,000 women who took part in the Conservation of Hearing Study, a large-scale examination into hearing loss and tinnitus, and published their findings last week in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.

A sample of women aged 31 to 48 were examined for hearing loss or other auditory problems on a regular basis over the first 20 years of the study.

Women were also asked about their daily lifestyle choices and activities on a regular basis, and data on over-the-counter drugs was used in this study.

Women who took COX-2 inhibitors like Celecoxib twice or more per week had a 20% higher risk of acquiring tinnitus, according to the study.
