Giuliani: Michael Brown Death Never Should Have Gone to a Grand Jury - Yahoo News

After days of nation-wide protesting and rioting over the grand jury decision to not indict former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said on Sunday that prosecutors shouldn't have tried to indict him in front of a grand jury in the first place. Doing so, according to Giuliani, was political theater.

"I don't see how this case normally would even have been brought to a grand jury," said Giuliani, a former prosecutor, on Fox News Sunday. "This is the kind of case—had it not had the racial overtones and the national publicity—where a prosecutor would have come to the conclusion that there is not enough evidence to present to the grand jury."


Nikki Sixx Calls On Musicians To Stand Up For Themselves (a top story)::Motley Crue News

On Wednesday Nikki Sixx Calls On Musicians To Stand Up For Themselves was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Nikki Sixx has called on musicians to stand up for themselves in royalty battles if their managers and lawyers won't. The Motley Crue bassist has taken direct aim at a practice known as "digital breakage" which can be used to reduce the amount of money an artist receives from streaming services.

The concept of breakage arises from traditional media, where record labels covered the costs of manufacturing, distributing and marketing music, and also carried charges associated with the return of unsold and damaged items. Those costs were removed before calculating musicians' share of income.


Coalition airstrikes pound IS stronghold in Syria - Yahoo News

BEIRUT (AP) — U.S.-led coalition warplanes carried out as many as 30 airstrikes overnight against Islamic State militants in and around the group's de facto capital in northeastern Syria, activists said Sunday.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the strikes targeted IS positions in the city of Raqqa as well as the Division 17 air base, which the militants seized earlier this year from government forces.

The monitoring group, which relies on a network of activists inside Syria, reported at least 30 coalition strikes in all. The Local Coordination Committees, an activist collective, also confirmed the airstrikes. Neither group had casualty figures.

Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber Relationship Fake? Kendall Jenner Says Yes | WebProNews

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber never loved each other, and their whole relationship has been fake since day one–at least that’s what Kendall Jenner reportedly says. OK! reports that Kendall is telling this to her friends–some of whom are friends with Selena, too. It sounds like the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star might have an ulterior motive, however.

“Kendall couldn’t care less about Selena and is telling all their mutual friends that Justin never loved her and she wants the word to get back to Selena,” a source reports.

Brooke Shields writes of life with her mother - Canon City Daily Record

"There Was a Little Girl: The Real Story of My Mother and Me" (Dutton), by Brooke Shields.

Brooke Shields, the iconic model-actress-Princeton grad, entered the literary scene in 2005 with her memoir about postpartum depression. This time, she sheds light on the relationship she shared with her mother, and it's a well-crafted and insightful read from beginning to end.

It would be a shame to dismiss "There Was a Little Girl" as a celebrity tell-all. Instead, it's a thoughtful, poignant and provoking story about a girl and her mom prompted by a New York Times obituary written shortly after Teri Shields' death in 2012.


Teri Hatcher Address U.N., Talks Childhood Sexual Abuse | WebProNews

Teri Hatcher addressed a United Nations event commemorating the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on Tuesday, and divulged the horrors of her own experience with sexual abuse. The Desperate Housewives star was abused by an uncle when she was a little girl–just seven years old. Although that abuse stopped around the time she was eight or nine years old, it haunted her throughout her life.

“I was convinced it was my fault and I blamed myself for what had happened, so I didn’t tell anyone and I was silent,” Hatcher said. “I did, however, unsurprisingly, start to act out and my mother decided to keep me away from my uncle. I didn’t see him anymore, but no one in my family ever asked exactly what happened. We remained silent.”
