The 15-year-old boy who fatally shot a fellow freshman at an Oregon high school last week has been laid to rest, but the questions about why he did it remain. Investigators have not released a motive for the June 10 attack. They say it could have been much worse if not for the quick actions of the responding officers and a gym teacher who suffered a grazing bullet wound. Those who eulogized the teen before about 200 people at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Gresham — 15 miles east of Portland — seemed at a loss for what caused the devout Mormon to open fire at his school.
An astonishingly tragic year for air travel in Southeast Asia turned worse Sunday when an AirAsia plane carrying 162 people disappeared over stormy Indonesian waters, with no word on its fate despite several hours of searching by air and sea. AirAsia Flight 8501 vanished in airspace possibly thick with dense storm clouds, strong winds and lightning on its way from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Searchers had to fight against heavy rain. The Malaysia-based carrier's loss comes on top of the still-unexplained disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in March and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July over Ukraine. At the Surabaya airport, shocked family members pored over the plane's manifest, crying and embracing when they learned the news. Nearly all the passengers and crew are Indonesians, who are frequent visitors to Singapore, particularly on holidays.
The poorest median white household in the U.S. still makes two times more than the poorest median black household. This statistic was discovered by the National Urban League, a civil rights organization based in New York City. For the last 40 years, the organization has published a report titled "The State of Black America." It measures the level of equality black and Latino people have in comparison to white people in the U.S. This particular year was fraught with racial tension. Recent reports of police brutality against black men and women, nationwide protests and a scathing Department of Justice report about excessive police force in the Ferguson, Missouri, are just a few of the leading factors of poor race relations in the U.S.
Kelly Clarkson gave her fans a Hump Day they won't soon forget! The new mama looked fabulous as she took to the stage in a green skirt, button-down blouse and retro-inspired shades for the outdoor performance. And before she began belting out the opening of "Catch My Breath," she told the audience of kids and parents alike that they can "sing along if you know the words." Clarkson also performed in front of thousands this past weekend at the annual iHeartRadio Music Awards, where her adorable daughter River hung out backstage.
In the summer of 1968, reeling after she and her husband of six years had launched bitter divorce proceedings against one another, Cynthia Lennon received a surprise well-wisher at her home in Weybridge, southwest of London. His name was Paul McCartney. Cynthia was surprised to see him. After John Lennon started living with Yoko Ono, the rest of the Beatles showed Cynthia the cold shoulder.
Michele Bachmann offended just about everyone on Tuesday when she compared President Barack Obama to Andreas Lubitz, the troubled young German pilot who drove a Germanwings jetliner into a mountain last week, killing 150 people. Bachmann, who ran for president in 2012 and received just 5% of the vote in the 2012 Iowa Republican caucuses, wrote in a Facebook post, "With his Iran deal, Barack Obama is for the 300 million souls of the United States what Andreas Lubitz was for the 150 souls on the German Wings flight — a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks. After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, why did he do it?" The condemnations on the post came quick. One man wrote, "Pathetic. Probably the DUMBEST thing I've read all day," one man wrote. Another Facebook user responded, "Michelle Bachmann is a lunatic without scruples or a shred of decency. She'd sell her soul for a few more minutes of attention."
