Grammy-nominated Atlanta-based rapper 21 Savage was arrested by U.S. immigration officials on Sunday, who said he was illegally in the country and a convicted felon.
The rapper, whose real name is Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, came to the United States from the UK as a teenager in 2005, overstaying his visa to settle in Atlanta, said Bryan Cox, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The list includes 50-plus names of organizations or individuals: from presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren to actress Alyssa Milano; individual journalists including Maggie Haberman, Ana Cabrera and David Brooks; national media outlets like the The New York Times, CNN, GQ and TMZ; and the dioceses of Covington and Lexington as well as the archdioceses of Louisville and Baltimore.
Plans by Venezuelan officials to ship 20 tons of gold overseas have reportedly been halted as the embattled presidency of Nicolas Maduro faces international pressure to cede power to a transitional government and protect the country’s hard assets.
The gold bars, worth around $850 million, were weighed and separated in the central bank but won’t be leaving the country anytime soon, according to reports. On Tuesday, reports emerged that the gold was ready to be loaded onto a Russian airliner that arrived in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas a day earlier.
Prosecutors investigating an Oregon police officer’s use of lethal force on an armed parent during a struggle outside a Eugene middle school have cleared the officer of wrongdoing
Perlow’s office also released body camera footage that shows the scuffle and shooting, including the moment when Landeros, a U.S. Army veteran who was wearing a T-shirt reading “Smash the patriarchy and chill,” pulled out a concealed handgun and aimed it at Timm, firing two rounds at the officer but missing both times.
Further investigation into Landeros’ background showed that in the days before the Cascade Middle School shooting, Springfield police officials were notified that someone called Charlie Landeros posted a comment, “Time to start killing pigs,” on a Facebook post about a police shooting of a legally blind man in Portland.
USA Powerlifting has banned all transgender women from competing as women, even as a trans powerlifter in Minnesota recently won a state championship with another association, setting a state record.

Fusion power — the process that keeps stars like the Sun burning — holds the promise of nearly unlimited clean power. But scientists have struggled for decades to make it a practical energy source.
Now, laser scientists say a machine learning breakthrough has smashed the standing record for a fusion power yield. It doesn’t mean fusion power is practical yet, but the prestigious journal Nature called the result “remarkable” and wrote that it has “major implications” — so, at the very least, it’s another hint that the long-deferred technology is starting to come into focus.
A cult leader known as “John of God” has been accused of running a sex slave farm and selling babies to the highest bidder on the black market.
The 77-year-old’s renowned spiritual world crumbled in December after he was accused of sexually abusing a Dutch woman on live TV. The woman’s claims prompted over 600 similar allegations to arise from around the world from countless women — all of which Faria has denied.
The Brazilian healer became a prominent spiritual figure in 2010 when Oprah Winfrey visited him and said she almost fainted during the “blissful” encounter.
Multiple sources claim that Joao Teixeira de Faria's ("John Of God") website says he has treated former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Brazil's ex-President Luiz Inacio da Silva, among the other celebrities. We cannot yet to verify if this is true. We tried scraping the data from his site but had no luck in actually finding that info. In fact, even the web archives failed to produce any of those results. So why would NBC, NY Post and other media outlets just make claims like that? Not denying that there was a connection between them, but the fact that they said it was through his website, came out to be false, so far. If anyone has any more details, please let us know so we can update the caption.
A high-ranking Venezuelan air force general said he had disavowed President Nicolas Maduro and now recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim head-of-state, according to a video circulating on Twitter on Saturday.
In the video, General Francisco Yanez, a member of the air force’s high command, called on other members of the military to defect. The high command’s web page lists him, along with a photo, as the air force’s head of strategic planning.
