What suppose to be business as usual and a regular day of travel, all changed when the airport at Brussels around 7am local time (8am GMT) was attacked while passengers checked in their bags and others preparing to board flights. The Prime Minister of Belgian, Charles Michel said, "What we feared has happened. In this time of tragedy, this black moment for our country, I appeal to everyone to remain calm but also to show solidarity.' ISIS took claim for the suicide bomb attack at Brussels Airport today that killed 34 people and injured 170 across the city. Belgian is on lockdown. 'Dismembered bodies everywhere' were a few of the description of the two separate attacks. 14 people were killed at the terminal and another 20 at a Metro station. In a time were Europeans feel unsafe and seems to be getting back to a comfortable place, today's attack has opened old wounds of the Paris attacks just four months ago.
Brussels resident, Richard Medic told CNN, "I think, after the Paris attacks, we were assuming like this would happen. And it was a matter of time." Around 11am, a mile away from the Maelbeek metro station, police and troops hunted down members responsible for the attacks. Two suspects were arrested. One of the alleged mastermind behind the attacks in Paris four months ago Salah Abdeslam, was arrested a day ago. After his arrest, Belgium Interior Minister warned the country of a possible retaliation after the arrest. It was also revealed yesterday, by a secret police dossier that, "there could be up to 90 'kamikazes' waiting to launch suicide bomb attacks in Europe after returning from Syria disguised as migrants."

A third unexploded device was found by firefighters who showed up to help. Three American missionaries from Utah are believed to have been seriously hurt. A worker from a restaurant within the airport Samir Derrouich, speaking to DailyMail said, "The two explosions were almost simultaneous. 'They were both at a check-in desk. One was close to the Starbucks. It was awful. There was just blood. It was like the apocalypse."
"A passenger Dries Valaert, 30, who was waiting to get his boarding pass from a check in desk when the blast struck. He said: 'There was a first blast and then ten seconds later a second explosion. It was a big, big blast, the ceiling went down. It was just 30 metres from where I was. I saw people down on the ground and I just went running. I jumped over the security fences towards the departure gates as I thought it would be safer."
'My first intuition was to get out in case their were attackers with guns. I saw a woman around 18 years old with a hole in her hand with blood pouring out and a man with an injured ankle and two people down. There was lots of panic. People were running all over the place." Another passenger, Mr. Valaert, who was flying to a business meeting in Berlin, said he believed the bombs were hidden in suitcases that had just been checked in. He said: 'The explosions were just behind the service desks, they were blown towards us. To me it is the most realistic possibility. I don't think it was someone with a suicide vest.' Below, president Barack Obama took time while on his historic visit in Cuba, to speak about the attacks. See more images and clips below as this story continue develop. We are praying for all affected.
Rihanna is the cover girl for Vogue magazine and she looks stunning. Rihanna took time away from the shoot for an interview with the publication. Now that she is back to work, the star explained what her current schedule looks like. “My schedule is so crazy right now.” It’s why, she says, she’s single: “It’s definitely going to be a challenge when I do decide to pursue a relationship . . . but I have hope!” Exercise is also hard to find time for. “I don’t work out as much as I’d like to,” she says, “but my trainer Jamie is a beast and she makes me pay for it.”
She went for a more natural look in the above image. The pop star and business woman is back busy after taking a while oof. Rihanna told Vogue that, After her last tour, in 2013, for Unapologetic, she vowed to take a break from recording. “I wanted to have a year to just do whatever I want artistically, creatively,” she says. “I lasted a week. The paparazzi got a picture of her going into the studio, “and my fans were like, ‘Oh, yes! We’s droppin’ a single.” From that moment, she says, the Navy was expecting an album. It would be another two years.
While Rihanna was celebrating her career high with the success of her album Anti, Beyonce released 'Formation.' Many felt that Beyonce move was selfish. People were focus on the attention being shifted from Rihanna to Beyonce, but what they failed to realized is that Beyonce had no choice, but to release the song the time she did because the Super Bowl was the same weekend. Rihanna did addressed the so-call "beef" between the two. Via Vogue: “Here’s the deal,” she says. “They just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative. Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.” To read the rest, visit Vogue. Perfect Rihanna, you have the right attitude. What God has for you is for. Being feeling threatened by another person success is not the way to go. Very wise and congratulations again on the cover.
Ciara and and the Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson have been dating for a little under a year now. The two made major headlines when a clip from Wilson sit-down interview at a church revealed that they decided to go down the path of celibacy. Abstaining from sex before marriage.
Ciara who was once engaged to rapper Future and share a son "Baby Future" decided to take a different approach this time in her romantic life and it seems as though it is working.
Since Wilson involvement in her life, Ciara have included her son Future in the mix of their relationship. Many have criticized the singer, saying that it was too soon to introduce her young child to a new man. The concern was that if the two were to end their relationship, the emotional damage to Baby Future would have been too much, seeing that his father is no longer in the household. All of these negative talk, did not stop Wilson from being a standup guy and positive role-model for Future.
While vacationing, Russell proposed. See images below and a clip of Ciara reaction.
Congratulations again to Ciara and Russell Wilson. Wishing you both the best.
28-year-old, Five-time Grand Slam winner Maria Sharapova revealed on Monday in a downtown Los Angeles hotel press conference that she tested positive for Meldonium. A drug Sharapova claimed she's been legally taking since 2006 prescribed by her doctor for health reasons and was unaware that the drug was recently placed on the ban list January 1, 2016. Sharapova tested positive during the Australian Open quarter-finals on January 26. A matched Serena Williams won against her.
After the press conference the world No. 1 Serena Williams said in the video below, "Maria Sharapova showed a lot of courage for accepting responsibility for her failed drugs test. Most people were surprised and shocked, but happy that she was upfront and very honest." Watch below.
What many thought was Sharapova retirement announcement, were disappointed. She now face a ban of up to four years. The International Tennis Federation (ITF) said Sharapova will be provisionally suspended from 12 March. She is the highest earning female athlete in the world for the past 11 years according to Forbes list. Sharapova, had to deal with a few major endorsement deals being termination yesterday. Her deal with Nike was suspended. Nike released a statement, "We are saddened and surprised by the news about Maria Sharapova," Nike (NKE). We have decided to suspend our relationship with Maria while the investigation continues."
Via CNN: "Automaker Porsche, owned by Volkswagen (VLKAY), said Tuesday it was postponing all planned sponsorship activities with Sharapova. Swiss watch brand TAG Heuer, part of the LVMH (LVMHF)group, said it was suspending negotiations with the tennis player about renewing a sponsorship deal that ended in December.Danone (DANOY), which owns Evian, said it was surprised by the news and would follow the investigation closely. Cosmetics brand Avon (AVP) declined to comment." Watch the press conference below.
Shamil Tarpishchev, Russian Tennis Federation president said that, "he expects Sharapova to play at the 2016 Olympics in Rio starting on 5 August. This is just a load of nonsense," he told the TASS news agency.
"The sportsmen take what they are given by the physiotherapists and by the doctors. However, we will need to see how this will develop." Women's Tennis Association (WTA) chief executive Steve Simon said of Sharapova's ban: "The range that has been discussed so far is between six months and four years." During an interview with BBC Radio 5 live, he said "It'll be up to the independent tribunal to go through and review it to make that determination."
Meldonium is designed to improve the flow of blood around the body, and is often used to treat heart issues. It can also improve patients' moods and make them become more active, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
I am aware that athletes have busy schedules, but they do have to start taking matters into their own hands and start keeping up with new drugs and rules added to the list monthly. Someone in her camp, dropped the ball in a major way. She will be back though. No doubt about it.
Marriott Owners Will Have To Pay Erin Andrews $55 Million Over The Nude Video Her Stalker Recorded Of Her In The Room Next Door
The beautiful American journalist, sideline reporter, sportscaster and recently becoming the co-host of 'Dancing With The Stars,' Erin Andrews is known for her vibrant and full of life attitude. A gorgeous woman who takes her craft very seriously. Andrews is also the host for Fox College Football for Fox Sports. Andrews career in the sports world requires a lot of traveling and basically living out of her suitcase for a while. She relies on hotel as her home during these times. Her trust in hotels and safety was severely destroyed in 2008. While traveling for work in 2008, Andrews stayed at The Marriott hotel at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. She was in her room like any normal person, getting ready to start her day. Andrews undressed and started to curl her hair. She had no clue that she was being secretly recorded.
Michael Barrett, a business man who travels a lot became obsessed with Andrews. He decided to stay at the same hotel she visited. He knew this information due to stalking Andrews. During his visit to the Marriott at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Andrew claimed that one of the hotel employees provided Barrett her room number when asked, which is absolutely against privacy laws and requested a room next to her room. It is possible that he might have told the employee that he was her security or work on her team, either way, this was very dangerous and could have ended badly had he waited for her to come out and attempted physical harm. He did however harm her emotionally by recording her private moments after tempering with the peephole of her room. He than uploaded the a little over four minutes video to the internet. When the video was posted, the FBI were able to track the individual who posted the video. Barrett pleaded guilty to "altering Andrew's hotel room peepholes, taking nudes videos of her and stalking." He was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison in May of 2011.
Andrew's continue her road to justice. She sued the franchise owner of the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University and Barrett for 75 million dollars, in 2008. While on the stand, she was brought to tears while describing the emotional distress this situation has brought to her life. She said that she, "still switches rooms upon arriving at hotels and checks for booby traps and recording devices." Andrew also said that she continues to suffer because people are still watching the videos and taunting her about them. "This happens every day of my life,' Andrews said tearfully. 'Either I get a tweet or somebody makes a comment in the paper or somebody sends me a still video to my Twitter or someone screams it at me in the stands and I'm right back to this. I feel so embarrassed and I am so ashamed." After years of proceedings, a jury of five men and seven women came to a decision on Monday and awarded Andrews $55 million. Not the $75 million she asked for, but $55 million isn't bad at all. The franchisers had argued that although what happened to Andrews was terrible, Barrett, should be fully responsible and not them. The judged left the decision up to the jury and the jury decided that both Barrett and the owners of the hotel are responsible and have to pay Andrews. "The jury declared Barrett 51 percent liable, so he is on the hook for more than $28 million. The hotel's ownership group was found 49 percent liable, so they will have to pay more than $26 million."
After the Verdict, Andrew posted a thank you message to her social media pages. "I would like to thank the Nashville court, the court personnel and the jury for their service. The support I've received from the people of Nashville has been overwhelming. I would also like thank my family, friends and legal team. I've been honored by all the support victims around the world. Their outreach has helped me be able to stand up and hold accountable those whose job it is to protect everyone's safety, security and privacy."
In the image above is Andrew's support system, her parents Paula and Steven Andrews who also took the stand during the trial. We are all glad that this is over. We hope that you find peace Erin Andrews. We are also glad that although still sad and terrible, it could have been worse. The hotel employee was reckless by doing that. What if Barrett obsession led to rape or murder, so much could have happened and we are happy that it did not escalate to that level.
