Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos, Nigeria have arrested two Brazilians who together attempted to smuggle over 23 kilograms of cocaine into the country. Dias Dos Santos Marcia Cristina, 36, was found with 9.4kg of cocaine in her bag and Lima Pereira Erick Diego, 20, had 14.465kg of cocaine in his bag. The Brazilian nationals, who traveled from São Paulo, claimed to be tourists.
Mitchell Ofoyeju, spokesperson for NDLEA, said in a statement that the drugs were carefully hidden in food cans inside their luggage. The total weight of the cocaine seizure was 23.865kg with an estimated street value of N310 million. Mr. Ofoyeju said that it was the first the NDLEA arrested Brazilians with cocaine at the Lagos airport. However, he explained that the Nigeria-Brazil cocaine trafficking route has gained notoriety over the years. NDLEA Commander at MMIA, Ahmadu Garba, said that the arrest took place during the inward screening of passengers on an Emirates flight. Officers discovered a white substance concealed in food cans which tested positive for cocaine.
Parents of three are getting divorced – so that their girlfriend won’t get jealous. Now either Cristina, 31, or Benno, 37, will marry their 21-year-old lover, Sierra Kuntz, so that all three will have legal rights to their children.
Benno, a legal assistant, said:
“Cristina and I decided this was something that needed to be done in order for Sierra to understand the depth of how much we love her and want her to be part of our family.
“The benefits of one of us marrying her are going to be on many different levels.“She is going to be legally considered a parent to the children and, more importantly, it will show her that this is not a temporary thing, we both love her and it’s something that’s meant to be permanent.”
Cristina and Benno met in 2005 when they were both serving in the US military police. They married four months later and a year into their marriage they had their first child, Isaiah, now 11, and later, Rebecca, seven, and Brianna, six. But eventually Cristina, who is bisexual, began to feel as though something was missing from her love life.

During her first international trip as an official adviser to her father, Ivanka Trump was booed when she mentioned the president's name before sharing a warm handshake with Angela Merkel one month after he awkwardly snubbed the German Chancellor. President Donald Trump's eldest daughter spoke during the Women's 20 Summit in Berlin at the start of a jam-packed one-day tour after being 'directly invited' by Merkel last month. While Merkel visited the U.S. in March, the president seemingly ignored requests from the press to shake Merkel's hand while the pair were meeting in the Oval Office. He was heavily criticized for not doing so and mocked by many on social media. However, Ivanka did not follow in her father's footsteps and shared a friendly handshake with Merkel after participating in the panel discussion on women's entrepreneurship alongside Merkel, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland and IMF chief Christine Lagarde.
The attack, as Richard Dabate described it to police, was horrific. A masked intruder barged into his Connecticut home, he said, tied up and tortured him and -- when his wife came home -- shot and killed her. His story, however, would not hold up with investigators. And when cops ultimately charged him with murdering his wife, they relied on evidence gathered from an unlikely source: The Fitbit his wife was wearing.
It was December 23, 2015. Dabate told detectives he put his two kids on the bus that morning, waved goodbye to his wife, Connie, and left for work. Soon afterward, the wife headed for a fitness class at the local YMCA, with a Fitbit on her waistband. In his version of the incident, as outlined in a warrant obtained by CNN affiliate WTIC, Dabate said he went back home when he realized he'd forgotten his laptop. That was between 8:45 a.m. and 9 a.m., he told detectives. He heard a noise, he said, and went upstairs to investigate. That's where he spotted an intruder, he said: a 6'2" man with a stocky build wearing a "camouflaged suit with a mask."

The Sackler family built one of the largest fortunes in the country on the back of a popular painkiller. The Sackler familyowns Purdue Pharma. Their company has sold more than $35 billion worth of their supposedly addiction-proof painkiller, OxyContin, since it hit the market in 1995. Purdue Pharma makes approximately $3 billion per year, mostly from U.S. sales of OxyContin. The Sackler family also owns a number of other drug companies that peddle their pills in Canada, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Those companies' combined yearly income adds another $3 billion to the mix. The combined worth of their drug companies and respective dividends over the years puts a conservative estimate of the Sackler family's net worth at $14 billion.

Apple just sent an email to members of the App Store affiliate program saying that App Store commissions will be reduced from 7 percent to 2.5 percent on May 1st — that’s a 64 percent cut. While this change will have no effect on App Store users, it has some implications on the App Store ecosystem. Many websites from the Apple community link to App Store downloads with a unique referral ID in the link. When customers buy apps or in-app purchases using this link, Apple gives back a small cut to its affiliate partner. Developers still get 70 percent of the sale while partners get incentivized. For a $1 app, this affiliate commission is just a few cents. But it can add up if you’ve built a serious audience. And I know this because I’ve experienced this myself.
If Apple drastically cuts this revenue stream, the company could end up alienating people writing for those sites. But it could also indicate that some bigger App Store changes are coming soon.
A fire department posted a video to social media, showing the moment police officers placed handcuffs on an alligator. According to the video that was posted to Facebook by St. Tammany Fire Protection District #1, a homeowner called the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to “evict” a large alligator, which made itself at home inside the garage of their home in Slidell. The officers entered the garage and used a special contraption made of a rope and metal to trap the animal. Once the metal piece was secured around the alligator, the officer dragged it outside of the home.
