Gunman Opens Fire At LAX Airport – On Friday 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia entered LAX airport armed with an Smith & Wesson .223-caliber assault rifle which pulled out of a duffle bag and anti-government materials and opened fire. The suspect allegedly went up to people and said “Hey, are you TSA?” if they said ‘no’ he let them live and moved on. Unfortunately 40 year old TSA worker Gerardo Hernandez was shot and killed as a result of his position. Two other TSA officials were shot, but not fatally an 3 other people were injured. Ciancia was detained after being shot in the chest several times and is currently in the hospital recovering from his injuries. His family has spoken out to say that they had become increasingly concerned about him because of his anger at the government and the TSA specifically recently . In the bag he was carrying he had a handwritten note expressing that he wanted to kill “TSA and pigs.” His father said that he sent him “angry rambling” text messages in the days leading up to the shooting. During the shooting the airport was shut down and some 760 flights were affected.As the investigation continues they found out that Ciancia had a ticket to board a plane and grew up in Pennsville, NJ and went to school in Wilmington, Delaware. Apparently right before this happened he texted is brother and was talking about suicide. This father called the police in LA and asked them to check on him at his house and obviously he wasn’t there. They are trying to find out who dropped this guy off at the airport.
YouTube Awards – The first ever YouTube awards went down last night. They were hosted by comedians Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts and included performances by Lady Gaga and Eminem. The awards were streamed worldwide and fans were in charge of voting for their favorite videos. I watched a little bit of it and it was a little chaotic. A hot mess at times. Nothing was scripted so there was a lot of awkwardness. The camera was filming a lot of behind the scenes mess and it didn’t look very produced. I watched the Eminem performance, which was very low and shut it off.
The Winners Were:
Artist Of The Year: Eminem
Video Of The Year: Girls’ Generation, “I Got A Boy”
YouTube Phenomenon: “I Knew You Were Trouble”
Innovation of the Year: DeStorm, “See Me Standing”
Response Of The Year: Lindsey Stirling and Pentatonix, “Radioactive”

It found that tumors accelerate the aging of tissue by 20 years and breast tissue near tumors is about 12 years older.
Mother Lets Son Dress As KKK / Girl Dresses Up As Boston Bomber Victim – There were some crazy Halloween costumes this year. A couple that took the cake include a 7 year old who was dressed as a KKK member and a woman who dressed as a Boston Marathon bombing victim. The mothers of a 7 year old Virginia boy said that her son asked if he could dress up as a KKK member for Halloween. Mom obliged and made him a costume saying that it’s “tradition” in her family- her brother dressed up as a member of the white supremacist group when hew as in kindergarten. Neighbors were shocked by the costume but the mother said that she did warn her son that people would talk about him and “stands” by her decision. Also in tasteless costume choice is the 22 year old woman who tweeted her outfit as a Boston Marathon Bombing victim complete with running number, burns, a cut on her head and blood dripping down her leg. It didn’t take long for twitter to ruin her life. People were outraged by her insensitivity and went so far as to find her address and her father’s company to send hate mail and even death threats. She deleted her social media accounts shortly after posting the picture but reactivated it on Friday to say “Plz stop with the death threats towards my parents. They did nothing wrong. I was the one in the wrong and I am paying for being insensitive.”
