Actress Shannon Richardson, who has appeared on “The Walking Dead” and “Vampire Diaries,” was arrested Friday afternoon in connection with ricin-laced letters sent to President Obama and New York mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The clock is a symbol of the threat of humanity’s imminent destruction from nuclear or biological weapons, climate change and other human-caused disasters.
The hands of the infamous “Doomsday Clock” will remain firmly in their place at five minutes to midnight — symbolizing humans’ destruction.
In 2010, the Bulletin found some hope in arms reduction treaties and international climate talks and bumped the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock back to six minutes from midnight from its previous post at five to midnight. But by 2012, the clock was pushed forward another minute. According to, Yahoo News.
According to Yahoo News, Florida pizza shop owner Scott Van Duzer lifted President Barack Obama a solid foot off the ground in a bear hug during an unscripted stop at his Fort Pierce, Fla., store. Literally.

According to USA Today, Gay icon Ricky Martin paid tribute today to President Obama for his recent shift on gay marriage.
The actor and singer — along with LGBT Leadership Council and Futuro Fund — hosted a fundraiser in New York for Obama this afternoon, just days after Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage. Martin, once a member of the boy band Menudo and perhaps best known for his hit Livin’ la Vida Loca, is now on Broadway performing in Evita.
Martin announced his plans to hold the fundraiser — which drew 200 who paid at least $5,000 each — long before Obama announced his shift in position on gay marriage.
Interestingly, Martin was previously a George W. Bush supporter, and even performed at his inauguration in 2001. Martin later soured on Bush over the Iraq War. During Monday’s fundraiser for Obama, Martin noted that he respected how Obama has conducted himself on foreign policy.
“We admire his courage, like the courage he showed last week in affirming his belief in marriage equality,” Martin said. “That is the kind of courage we expect from our president and that is why we support him. He knows we’re in this together and that together we’re stronger than divided. We elected the right president at the right time.”
In his remarks, Obama said that gay marriage “strengthens families.”
The president also paid tribute to Martin and suggested his supporters catch Evita.
“Those of you who haven’t caught Evita yet, go out there,” Obama said. “I’m sure there are tickets still available. So grateful for him stepping out and being able to support me in this way.”
According to People, President Obama’s daughter Malia is just fine even though she was in Mexico on Tuesday when a 7.6 magnitude earthquake hit.
“In light of today’s earthquake, we can confirm that Malia Obama is safe and was never in danger,” the First Lady’s communications director Kristina Schake wrote in a statement Tuesday.
The quake, which initially hit Oaxaca in southwestern Mexico, sent aftershocks through Mexico City.
Malia, 13, is on vacation in Oaxaca as part of a school-sponsored service project, reports the Associated Press.
With the exception of this instance because it involves the safety of the president’s daughter, the White House does not comment on the Obama children and generally requests that media not report on or photograph the girls when they are not with their parents.
The Presidency of Barack Obama began at noon EST on January 20, 2009, when he became the 44th President of the United States. Obama was a United States Senator from Illinois the time of his victory over Arizona Senator John McCain in the 2008 presidential election. Barack Obama is the first African-American president of the United States, as well as the first-born in Hawaii.
Do you think Barack Obama should be re-elected? Is he doing a good job? Do you think he let you down?
When President Obama announced to the world Bin Laden was dead it was tears of joy for us here in the United States, when 911 hit 1o years ago the United States froze in disbelief and heartaches that will never heal, for the first time in a long time the United States came together and cried together.
Bin Laden was the master-mind monster behind the attack in New York City and caused people to lose their Children, Mother, Father, Sister, Brother, Friends and the list goes on and on.
For those of us who did not know the families who lost their love one, it felt as we did because we could feel their pain. Now that Bin Laden is gone, his nut azz followers will try to become the number 1 man and hit the US again.
I would love to have seen them bring Bin Laden’s azz to the United States where the Twin Towers use to stand, call the families of that attack and let them beat his AZZ, then let the rest of the US get him and if anything was left, then kill his azz. What can I say, I am an OUTSPOKEN Libra!
We must once again watch, be careful, band together as ONE let’s stop talking about race, skin color, how large a person is, how poor that person is, etc and be what we are and that’s UNITED as in United STATES. I know I am a Celebrity Blogger and not a Political Blogger however this need to be said. Now Donald Trump can ask for Bin Laden Death certificate.
NOTE: MY LOVE, HEART, AND PRAYERS WILL FOREVER GO OUT TO THE VICTIMS OF 911 AND THEIR FAMILIES.
