ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOWLately, the fight has been joined by others who lost relatives in the Dec. 14, 2012, school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Their efforts have turned the tables on the hoaxers, including Alex Jones , host of the conspiracy-driven Infowars website. Robbie Parker, whose 6-year-old daughter Emilie was among 20 first-graders and six educators killed at Sandy Hook, spent years ignoring people who called him a crisis actor. He was once stopped in a parking garage by a man who berated him and said the shooting never happened. Pozner is the lead plaintiff in several of at least nine cases filed against Sandy Hook deniers in federal and state courts in Connecticut, Florida, Texas and Wisconsin.

HONG KONG (ANN): The hard-working Louis Koo may be a familiar face in Hong Kong movies but little is known of his private life. Which is why news that he bought a HK$50mil (RM26.8mil) yacht for his parents has made a big splash in local media. Koo, son of former actor Koo Chun-kwong, was a manager at a modelling agency, but became a model when a client insisted that he fronted an advertisement. Two projects - Tracey and Men On The Dragon - nabbed 20 nominations together at this year's Hong Kong Film Awards. Koo, who is also president of the Hong Kong Performing Artistes Guild, offered to take care of the funeral arrangements when actress Yammie Lam, 55, was found dead in her home last year.

But logic has nothing to do with why Luke Parker is still on The Bachelorette. And yet Hannah continues to cling to his self-serving bullcrap about how she’s the only thing that matters to him. ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOWEither way, it sucks; it sucks for her, it sucks for the other guys and it sucks for the viewers since the Luke drama is leaching the enjoyment out of the season. More likely the producers just needed some filler so they can stretch out The Luke P Show for as long as possible. Date with Luke continued: We picked up where we left off last week with Hannah telling Luke she couldn’t give him the date rose because he wasn’t giving her what she wanted.

PETALING JAYA: Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz says he is not sure who is behind the circulation of a sex video purportedly of him and Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali. Haziq told theSun that he was the victim in the issue that has rocked the nation. “Everyone forgets that I’m the victim as well because someone recorded and leaked what should have been a private moment,” he was quoted as saying in an excusive interview with the daily. In the past week, clips of a sex video involving two men have gone viral. Haziq, who is also Santubong PKR Youth chief, confessed that he was one of the two men in the video, and claimed that the other person was Azmin.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump captured the Republican Party and then the presidency in 2016 as an insurgent intent on disrupting the status quo. Helping further that image, Trump advisers believe, is that his main Democratic foils are all career politicians: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, former Vice-President Joe Biden and, yes, Hillary Clinton. “He promised that he’d go to Washington and shake things up, and he certainly has,” said Trump campaign manager Tim Murtaugh. Trump advisers also point to his popularity among white working-class voters, who consider themselves “forgotten Americans” left behind and mocked by elite insiders. Americans acknowledge Trump is a change agent, but they are divided in their views of that change.

You want what you want and plan to zero in on that goal. If single, you could easily confuse a new sweetie with your multi-faceted personality. If attached, the two of you are likely to have difficulty seeing eye to eye over finances and/or another critical issue. You might want to understand where another person comes from before you commit to a decision that could impact both of you. You might not be in the mood to make a major change, but you are receptive about a discussion involving this change.

The Blue Jays have run out of excuses for why Edwin Jackson has remained in the starting rotation for so long. Jackson was hit all over the ballpark on Monday night as he allowed seven runs over two-thirds of an inning in the Blue Jays’ 10-5 loss to the Angels. He just hasn’t been able to find it,” Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said. It didn’t work twice vs. the Angels as Jackson entered in the second inning of a 1-0 game and quickly let things get out of hand. The alternatives: There is a glaring lack of pitching depth within the Blue Jays organization, so the club doesn’t exactly have a lot of options to replace Jackson.

“There are definitely things I’m going to miss. I’m going to marry the girl and I want her to be happy and for her dreams to be fulfilled.

CYBERJAYA (Bernama): Residents here will be able to enjoy food delivery service right at their doorstep with the help of drones by the end of the month. Hamdee said the current plan was to have the food delivery service over a three-month trial period. Only seven types of food would be offered during the trial period, including noodles, rice, burgers, sandwiches, 'kuih' and fruits. "It's not so much about the price, it is all also about the time frame since many want quick delivery. We have developed the drone so that it could be flown in the rain, but not in situations when there is heavy rain," he said.

The era’s press dubbed Vanderbilt the “poor little rich girl,” leaving her with an aura of mystery that she never escaped. She turned “Gloria Vanderbilt” into a label prominently displayed on the backside of a line of form-fitting blue jeans for women and helped launch a disco-era fashion craze.

Ford’s appearance surprises York Pride organizers, June 16Over the years, Doug Ford has given two reasons for not participating in the Pride parade. In 2014, he was concerned about middle-aged men being “buck naked” in the streets. More recently, he has been concerned about the lack of police officers. The photo of him in the York Region parade shows him as being fully clothed and adjacent to a number of police officers. At least he is being totally consistent.

SANTA ANA, Calif. - Freshman U.S. Rep. Katie Porter on Monday threw her support behind an impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump, adding another Democratic lawmaker to those clamouring for the move. The congresswoman from Irvine, California, announced her decision in a video statement. About 60 other lawmakers support opening an inquiry, a far cry from a majority in the 435-seat House. But Republicans still outnumber Democrats in her district covering a swath of eastern Orange County and hold a slight edge in the county as a whole. Fred Whitaker, chairman of the Orange County Republican Party, called Porter “too far left” for her district and “out of touch.” “She doesn’t have the support of her district.

OTTAWA—A Senate committee has breathed new life into an inquiry into the failed prosecution of Vice-Admiral Mark Norman, after the Conservative senator behind the probe reversed course and decided not to kill it. Conservative Sen. Jean-Guy Dagenais had indicated that he planned to abandon the study, saying the clock had effectively run out because of the Liberals. But in a surprise turn of events during Monday’s meeting of the Senate defence committee, Dagenais instead successfully lobbied fellow committee members to extend its original June 20 deadline for reporting the results of its study back to the Senate. ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOWYet committee members were told that the Senate as a whole could also vote to allow the committee to continue the probe, setting the stage for a sharp debate in the coming days. Committee members also heard that neither Norman nor his lawyer, Marie Henein, had yet responded to their invitations to testify about his two-year ordeal, which ended last month.
