Thief steals barrel of gold flakes from armored truck in NYC

A bandit ran off with over $1 million worth of gold after swiping a barrel from an armored truck in Midtown, police sources said Friday.
The brazen theft went down on W. 48th St. near Fifth Ave. Thursday afternoon, when two guards on a Loomis International truck making a pick-up in the Diamond District noticed that one five-gallon drum of gold flakes – part of a larger shipment headed to Canada – was missing.

The 86-pound tin of precious metals, valued at around $1,565,000, was part of a delivery meant to end up in Ontario with a company called Asahi Refining, sources said.

The truck’s surveillance cameras caught a suspect lifting a container and sprinting off east on 48th St, sources said.
The truck had started its day picking up a load on W. 47th St. near 6th Ave, before making the stop on W. 48th St.

Four 55-gallon pails of silver and four other five-gallon containers of gold were untouched.
Police sources described the suspect as a Hispanic man wearing a black vest over a gree…

Prem Update: Chelsea Win, Payet Saves Hammers

Chelsea produced a vastly-improved second half performance as they put recent problems behind them with a 2-0 win at Hull City.
The Blues were grateful to goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who made a fine save from a deflected Robert Snodgrass free kick, as they struggled to get going before the break and failed to muster an effort on target.
But it was a different story in the second half as Chelsea started strongly. They should have led when N’Golo Kante played in Diego Costa, whose effort deflected off Jake Livermore and hit the post, with Kante blazing the rebound over the bar.

They broke through after 61 minutes when Costa played the ball to Willian on the edge of the area and he curled a sumptuous shot high into the net, and the advantage was doubled six minutes later as striker Costa produced an outstanding finish of his own.
In the day’s early game, Liverpool went second in the Premier League table after coming from a goal down to secure a 2-1 victory at struggling Swansea.

Sakawa man turns into cat

The desire among three friends from Asante Bekwai in the Ashanti Region to become rich overnight by way of rituals (Sakawa) turned bizarre when one of them allegedly turned into a cat after sleeping in a coffin for seven days.

The names of the three friends were given as Kwadwo Kumasi, 28; Yaw Mensah, 37, and Kwame Osei, 26.
They are said to have contacted a popular jujuman, identified as Mallam Kantanka, at Sefwi Asawinso in the Western Region, to perform rituals for them to become rich overnight.

As part of the rituals, the jujuman instructed them to sleep in a coffin in turns for seven days.

According to a resident of Asawinso, Nana Yaw Koranteng, who is a close friend of Mallam Kantanka’s, Kumasi elected himself to be the first to sleep in the coffin, while the remaining two waited for their turns.

Nana Koranteng said when the first seven days elapsed, two of the friends went to check on Mallam Kantanka at his shrine but he was nowhere to be found.

He said apart from the disapp…

Ricardo Medina Jr., a former Power Rangers actor, denied slaying his roommate with a sword at his arraignment on Friday.
Medina, 37, pleaded not guilty to one count of murder in the killing of Josh Sutter, 36, which occurred on Jan. 31, 2015.

The actor, best known for portraying the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger in Power Rangers Wild Force in 2002, faces up to 26 years to life in prison if convicted, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The two men were allegedly arguing about Medina's girlfriend when the argument turned physical. Medina is accused of stabbing Sutter multiple times with a sword at their Green Valley, California home.

The actor called the police after the incident and first responders took Sutter to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

After his arrest following his roommate's death, Medina was released on Feb. 3 as the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office did not feel there was enough evidence to charge him at the time.

Woman wears a pair of underwear for 3 weeks and sells them for $5,000

A 21 year old student who goes by the alias of Lady Kitten, who said she has been working with a website that allows users to discreetly buy and sell used underwear, for about six months said she uses the platform as a chance to make a little extra money on the side.
She said she first got into the business after searching around online for how to make extra money. She said

 "I saw that some girls were making good money from this, so I thought I'd try it out".
And she did. The internet (and the world) is full of people who fetishize worn underwear, whether they enjoy the natural scent, or want to purchase a pair someone has masturbated in. "I try to list three or four pairs each week, although I can get a bit lazy," she explains. In her six-month stint, she had raked in about $4,000.
Over time, Lady Kitten had built up a rapport with a single seller who bought her items frequently. They chatted via email about hobbies, interests, and all the things that mi…

Hurricane Matthew is strongest storm in Atlantic in nine years

The most powerful hurricane in the Atlantic for nine years is moving towards Jamaica with wind speeds of up to 260km/h (160mph), strong enough to wreck houses.
Weather forecasters have upgraded Hurricane Matthew to category five, the highest on the scale of intensity.
Jamaican PM Andrew Holness has called an urgent meeting of parliament to discuss hurricane preparedness. The storm is expected to make landfall by Monday.
Jamaica's palm-lined southern coast is expected to be hit first. The capital, Kingston, is located in the area, as is the country's only oil refinery.

 Officials have warned the high winds could also batter the island's main tourist areas including Montego Bay in the north.
"The government is on high alert," Mr Holness' director of communications, Robert Morgan, was quoted by Reuters as saying.
"We hope that the hurricane does not hit us, but if it does hit us, we are trying our very best to ensure that we are in the best possible place.&q…

Caf sets three-term limit on presidency

The Confederation of African Football president will be limited to three terms in office from next year's election in March 2017. 
Junior Binyam, Caf's media spokesman, confirmed to BBC Sport that the new ruling was approved at Thursday's Extraordinary General Assembly.
It is a major change for the governing body, whose incumbent president Issa Hayatou has been in power for 28 years.
The limit will also apply to the members of Caf's Executive Committee.
In February, football's world governing body Fifa limited its presidency to three terms in office as it aimed to recover from a corruption crisis.
Binyam told BBC Sport: "The main reason of this amendment of Caf statutes was to align them with Fifa ones. But more reforms and amendment can be expected."
In 2015 Caf voted to change the statutes which previously stopped officials serving past the age of 70, which paved the way for Hayatou, who turned 70 in August, to stand in the next presidential electio…

Angelina Jolie granted full custody of the couple's 6 children in temporary deal

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly struck a temporary custody agreement Friday that will grant full physical custody of the couple's six children to Angelina Jolie while Brad Pitt will be subjected to random voluntary drug testing and an initial supervised visit with his kids.

The terms will last for three weeks before the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS)can make new recommendations. Pitt was under investigation by DCFS after the agency received an anonymous tip that Pitt had attacked his 15-year-old son Maddox while on a flight back from France. The tipster reported Pitt as "physically" and "verbally abusive" towards the pair's eldest child. The temporary divorce agreement also subjects Pitt to random drug and alcohol testing.  According to news reports, Pitt took a volunta…

Current US President Obama showed his cool side when former US President Bill Clinton on Friday, delayed the US Airforce one from leaving Israel when Clinton kept talking to other people on the Tarmac.

The current and former presidents flew into Tel Aviv early Friday morning to attend the funeral of former Israeli President Shimon Peres. After the funeral, the presidents were supposed to get back on Air Force One to fly straight back to Washington, DC, for a dinnertime arrival.
President Obama boarded the plane first and waved to the crowd below, but grew kinda impatient as Clinton delayed the jet from leaving. He smiled as he kept beckoning on Clinton to get on the plane so they could leave, lol. Watch the video above.
