Gambian army chief pledges allegiance to defeated president

The head of Gambia's army has given his full backing to the country's president, Yahya Jammeh, amid a deepening political crisis.
Mr Jammeh suffered a surprise electoral defeat last month to Adama Barrow.
He initially accepted the result but changed his mind days later, citing electoral "abnormalities".
In a letter to the pro-government newspaper, Gen Ousman Badjie pledged the "unflinching loyalty and support of the Gambia Armed Forces" to Mr Jammeh.
Gen Badjie's intervention follows the threat of military action by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) if Mr Jammeh refuses to leave office on 19 January.
President Jammeh has said any such intervention would constitute an act of war.
Mr Barrow's team had previously claimed the support of Gen Badjie. The army's support is seen as critical in building a transition after Mr Jammeh's 22 years in power. 
The tiny West African state has not had a smooth transfer of power since i…

Megyn Kelly is now one of the highest-paid hosts on TV — here's where her salary ranks

After 12 years with Fox News, Megyn Kelly is moving on and up to host several shows at NBC.  In a broad multiyear deal with the broadcast network, Kelly will anchor an NBC News program on Sunday evening, host an hour-long daily daytime news talk show, and become a mainstay in special political news events.
The new gig means that Kelly will also raise her salary from the previously reported $10 million to $12 million range at Fox to likely between $15 million and $20 million at NBC, according to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
So where does that place Kelly's paycheck versus the salaries of other big TV hosts?
In October, Variety released estimated numbers for the salaries of a range of TV actors and personalities. The estimates are based on surveys of actors, executives, attorneys, agents, and other representatives.

Janet Jackson's baby's name explained

As Janet Jackson and her husband Wissam Al Mana settle into parenthood after welcoming a healthy baby boy named Eissa on Tuesday, Jan. 3, multiple outlets are speculating on the meaning of their son's name.
E! News reports some have theorized Eissa means Jesus in Arabic, a nice balance for a child whose mom was raised as a Jehovah's Witness and whose father is a Quatari Muslim.

Bustle dug a little deeper, citing BabyNamesPedia as its source for discovering that Eissa translates to "Yaweh," a Hebrew word for God, "is salvation."
Eisa is generally the spelling of the name when used for girls, the website reports, while Eissa is the preferred boy's version.

‘How do you just sit there?’ Family slams viewers who did nothing as woman died on Facebook Live

Facebook Live was Keiana Herndon’s personal reality show. Almost every day, she would broadcast her singing voice, the minutiae of her life and images of her two children to the phones of family and friends. 
But she’d managed to keep one thing secret.
It was 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 28, midway between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Herndon, of Camden, Ark., was at a friend’s house, along with her youngest son, Rylee. Herndon launched Facebook and tapped the button to go live.
She mouthed the words to a song playing in the background and responded to some of her friends’ comments. She pivoted the camera to her 1-year-old, who used a coffee table to balance on chubby toddler legs as he sucked a pacifier.

As many as 20 friends were watching as she wiped beads of sweat from her brow, her uncle Jeffery Herndon told The Washington Post.
“Then maybe seven or eight minutes into the video, she passed out,” he said. “The phone fell on the floor.” At one point, the toddler picked up the phone, obliv…
