Palestinian militants launched dozens of rockets and Israel responded with airstrikes on Wednesday after Egyptian efforts to mediate a lasting truce in the monthlong Gaza war collapsed in a hail of fire a day earlier. One of the Israeli airstrikes appeared to have targeted the home of Mohammed Deif, the Islamic militant group's elusive military chief, who has escaped numerous Israeli assassination attempts in the past. A Hamas spokesman said Deif was not present during the strike on a Gaza house. Officials said, five people were killed, including Deif's wife and infant son, Hamas. The fighting resumed late Tuesday when Gaza militants fired rockets at Israeli cities just hours before a temporary cease-fire was set to expire, prompting Israel to withdraw its delegation from Cairo and launch retaliatory airstrikes. Since the truce collapsed, at least 20 Palestinians have been killed and more than 120 wounded.
It's weird how life works. Giorgio Moroder 's credentials in the world of music have been rock solid since disco was the thing; he's the man behind productions for Donna Summer , produced the Scarface soundtrack, and helped turn the synthesizer into a viable instrument for not just electronic music, but for many genres. Now Morodor has Déjà vu, his first album of music in thirty years, and judging by the album's title track (which features powerful vocals from Sia), Moroder hasn't lost a step. Déjà vu is set to be released on June 16, with features from Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Charli XCX, Kelis, and many others.
The cabin crew chief who was forced to kneel in front of a Korean Air executive because of some macadamia nuts plans to file a lawsuit — for $46.3 million. Park Chang-jin would be following in the steps of Kim Do-hee, who filed a lawsuit in the New York State Supreme Court in March. Kim served former airline VP Heather Cho macadamia nuts in a bag, instead of on a plate, aboard a Korean Air flight in December. Kim's lawsuit alleges Cho yelled obscenities and hit her with papers in the face and chest as she kneeled before the executive, according to the New York Daily News, which reviewed the court papers.
Fitspiration, much? Khloé Kardashian was (just like us) flipping through the 2015 Met Gala arrivals pics last night when she stumbled upon the one, the only, Beyoncé. The E! reality star took to Twitter to share her reaction to the nearly naked Grammy winner's ensemble—and physique—and admitted that she is turning to Bey for inspiration. And to be fair, if anyone is giving us reason to hit the gym lately it's Khloé herself. The newly blonde stunner has been working hard to whip herself into the best shape of her life and has made no secret of documenting all of her sessions with her personal trainer on social media.
Former Rep. Aaron Schock said in March he would amend his campaign finance reports to reflect a number of errors. He has not done so. The Illinois Republican said he would repay the government for tens of thousands of dollars of questionable mileage reimbursements he had received. But representatives for Schock refused to say whether he has, and House records that would detail any repayment won’t be available for weeks. Schock was legally required to file a financial disclosure statement within 30 days of leaving Congress but he has failed to do that, too. According to sources with knowledge of the inner workings of his operation, the disgraced ex-lawmaker, who’s kept a low profile since he resigned from Congress at the end of March, has begun to use his leftover campaign funds to pay at least one former staffer’s legal fees.
"What is life?" asks Bethany Cosentino, of Best Coast, on "So Unaware." For real, girl? Existential inquiry is an unexpected avenue for a songwriter who made her name with 2009's "Sun Was High (So Was I)" and other beachy anthems about battling romantic blues with garage-pop melodies and bubblegum kush. On her band's third album, it seems that coping mechanism isn't working so well anymore. Her solution? Double down on hooks, harmonies and wall-of-sound effects; own your darkness; power through. Except for the unusual title track – an extended dream-pop reverie about wanting to get lower, not higher – there's a sugar-crusted sameness to the songs that can occasionally wear thin. But as with Best Coast's beloved Ramones, you could also call it consistency. Either way, it's a pretty glorious sound.
