In one video, the singer railed against the police and media and said he was being unfairly portrayed as a villain. "Good luck. When you get the warrant or whatever you need to do, you're going to walk right up in here and you're going to see nothing, you idiots," he said in one video. "I'm tired of ... dealing with y'all." "At the same time," Brown added, "when I call the police for stalker people that are endangering my life, they don't come until the nex…

BREAKING: Islamic State's top spokesman al-Adnani 'killed in Aleppo'

In a statement distributed by the group's supporters, Amaq News Agency reported that Abu Muhammad al-Adnani died in the city of Aleppo.

Top Govt Officials Sacked After Dubai Ruler Finds Lots Of Empty Seats At 7:30am

Dubai's ruler has ordered a shake-up of the city state's management, including the retirement of nine senior officials, a day after he conducted a surprise spot check of government offices at 7.30am and found a significant number of employees absent.

On Sunday, his government posted a video on Instagram of him making an unannounced visit to the Land Department and Department of Economic Development office and finding it empty, an exercise which a Dubai media official said was intended to 'send a message'.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum casually wandered around the deserted office with empty seats, picking up an employee's book and flicking through it. He walked past a framed portrait of himself on the wall but couldn't find anyone to actually talk to. The visit should not have caught so many people out as Sheikh Mohammed is known for his early-morning inspections 'to ensure government services are up to Dubai's globally admired standa…

Apple facing record bill for Irish tax

Apple could be ordered to pay billions of euros in back taxes in the Republic of Ireland by European Union competition officials.
The final ruling, expected on Tuesday, follows a three-year probe into Apple's Irish tax affairs, which the EU has previously identified as illegal.
The Financial Times reports that the bill will be for billions of euros, making it Europe's biggest tax penalty. Apple and the Irish government are likely to appeal against the ruling.
Under EU law, national tax authorities are not allowed to give tax benefits to selected companies - which the EU would consider to be illegal state aid.

According to EU authorities, rulings made by the Irish government in 1991 and 2007 allowed Apple to minimise its tax bill in Ireland.
Apple's company structure enabled it to legally channel international sales through Ireland to take advantage of that tax deal.
On Tuesday EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager is expected to give an estimate of how much Appl…
