Jury cries at mass-shooting trial: James Holmes Aurora Shooting

Jury cries at mass-shooting trial: James Holmes Aurora Shooting, Jurors in the Colorado theater shooting case fought back tears as they looked at gruesome autopsy photos of a 6-year-old victim and were told how the bullets ripped through her tiny body.

Prosecutors used a mannequin on Thursday to explain the fatal gunshot wounds suffered by some of the 12 victims, allegedly killed by gunman James Holmes. The panel also heard a chilling 911 call that captured the chaos during the July 2012 shooting inside the Aurora cinema.

People in the audience sobbed and gasped as they listened to the grueling testimony about how the moviegoers died, the Denver Post reported.

The trial against Holmes wrapped up its fourth week Thursday. Holmes, 27, is accused of killing 12 people and injuring another 70 when he opened fire inside an Aurora theater playing “The Dark Knight Rises” in July 2012.

Star Ryan Reynolds has shared snaps from the set of the movie in his home town on Vancouver – after a child suffering Hodgkin’s Disease was made a VIP for the day.

Tony Acevedo asked Make A Wish Foundation if he could meet Deadpool. I wasn’t expecting him to sneak the mask, put on the gloves, smile… and then beat Deadpool about the face, arms and jugular with blazing speed. Tony’s next fight is with Hodgkin’s Disease. Hodgkin’s Disease best be wearing its brown pants. Huge thanks to @makeawishamerica

“Tony Acevedo asked Make A Wish Foundation if he could meet Deadpool,” Reynolds explained in an Instagram post.

“I wasn’t expecting him to sneak the mask, put on the gloves, smile… and then beat Deadpool about the face, arms and jugular with blazing speed.

The youngster had apparently specified that he’d like to meet the superhero because “Deadpool never dies and everything he touches has magical powers”.

Hubble observes strange ‘Nasty’ star: Hubble Nasty

Hubble observes strange ‘Nasty’ star: Hubble Nasty, Nasa’s Hubble space telescope has spotted a weird star in our galaxy and has been nicknamed “nasty” owing to its behaviour never seen before.

The hefty, rapidly ageing star “Nasty 1″ may represent a brief transitory stage in the evolution of extremely massive stars.

First discovered several decades ago, “Nasty 1″ was identified as a Wolf-Rayet star, a rapidly-evolving star that is much more massive than Sun.

The star loses its hydrogen-filled outer layers quickly, exposing its super-hot and extremely bright helium-burning core.

But “Nasty 1″ does not look like a typical Wolf-Rayet star.

Hubble revealed a pancake-shaped disk of gas encircling the star.

The vast disk is nearly two trillion miles wide.

Based on current estimates, the nebula surrounding the stars is just a few thousand years old and as close as 3,000 light-years from the Earth.

According to astronomers, this disc is the result of an exceedingly rare occurrence wherein two Wolf-Rayets form within the same solar system and one star’s hydrogen fuel is siphoned off by its smaller companion.

“We were excited to see this disk-like structure because it may be evidence for a Wolf-Rayet star forming from a binary interaction,” explained study leader Jon Mauerhan from the University of California-Berkeley in a statement.

There are very few examples in the galaxy of this process in action because this phase is short-lived, perhaps lasting only a hundred thousand years, while the timescale over which a resulting disk is visible could be only ten thousand years or less.

“What evolutionary path the star will take is uncertain, but it will definitely not be boring,” the authors noted.

Man & missing dog reuinted: Florida Missing Dog Reunite Joshua Edwards

Man & missing dog reuinted: Florida Missing Dog Reunite Joshua Edwards, A South Florida man who was separated from his dog for eight years has been reunited with his pet.

Joshua Edwards’ Rottweiler puppy Duke disappeared from his South Florida home in 2007 when he was just a year and half old. Edwards searched for the puppy for six months but believed someone may have stolen him.

Last week, Maria Elena Cartaya spotted the now 9-year-old, 120-pound dog wandering the streets.

Cartaya took him to Tamiami Animal Hospital, where they checked the dog for a microchip. It linked back to Edwards.

The hospital notified Edwards, but he said he didn’t believe the news until he received a second phone call from Cartaya.

Edwards reunited with Duke at the hospital Tuesday and took him home to join his family’s three other dogs and meet his two young sons.

Aside from an eye infection, Edwards said Duke was in good condition.

Edwards said he wishes Duke could tell him where he has been, since he was obviously taken care of for most of his life.

Mary-Kate & Ashley out of sequel?: Olsen Twins Fuller House

Mary-Kate & Ashley out of sequel?: Olsen Twins Fuller House, Ruh-Roh, as Scooby Doo would say! Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are officially out and will not return for Fuller House, the Full House sequel coming to Netflix, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Earlier this month, John Stamos, who is producing the series, turned some heads when he tweeted something that (kind of) indicated Mary-Kate might be interested in making an appearance.

Had a sweet talk with M.K today!! There way more important things going in the wold today. #Family

— John Stamos (@JohnStamos) April 29, 2015

Candace Cameron Bure, who is starring in Fuller House, mentioned that she thought everyone was returning for Fuller House, but apparently, she was wrong.

Executive Producer Robert L. Boyett confirmed the Olsen twins would not be involved with the new project (via Hollywood Reporter):

“Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of Fuller House, I know how much Full House has meant to them and they are still very much considered family,” executive producer Robert L. Boyett said in a statement. “It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. I appreciate their support and good wishes towards Fuller House.“

Honestly, the news isn’t that surprising considering it’s the Olsen twins, who have been out of the acting game for a while now.

Their absence shouldn’t impact the series much, though. Sure, it’d be wonderful and super nostalgic to have everyone back, but it’s not like it should make or break the series. The only reason people like Michelle, the character the Olsen twins played, was because she was a cute, little kid who said and did funny things. It’s a little less funny when an adult says, “You got it, dude!”

Overall, Full House fans are probably disappointed, but come on, guys, you’re getting a Full House sequel with all the characters except one coming back to the show. It’s going to be okay!

Cops: Woman held in box found slain: Sandra Kay Sutton Found Dead

Cops: Woman held in box found slain: Sandra Kay Sutton Found Dead, The Missouri woman who said her boyfriend held her captive in a box for four months has been found dead.

Sandra Kay Sutton, 46, and her 17-year-old son, Zachary Wade Sutton, were found dead from gunshot wounds on Thursday morning, KMBC reports.

Investigators told the news station that Sutton and her son had been staying with their family, who discovered the bodies in the early morning after returning home from overnight work shifts.

The primary suspect, police say, is James Barton Horn Jr., whom Sutton identified in late April as the man who had been locking her in a box while he went to work. Horn, who is a registered sex offender, was charged earlier this month with kidnapping, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon, but disappeared before police could arrest him.

Police surrounded a home in Sedalia, Missouri, for hours on Thursday afternoon in hopes of catching Horn, The Washington Post reports, but the suspect was not at the residence. They believe Horn shot the mother and son and then fled in Sandra Sutton’s car, which he allegedly drove to the Sedalia hospital and abandoned there. Schools in the area were placed on lockdown and outdoor activities were canceled for the day, KMBC reports.

Weeks ago, Sutton had escaped and called 911. Police found the large wooden box “consistent with what the female described,” Sedalia Detective Sgt. Joshua Howell said at the time. Horn had fled the scene by the time the officers arrived.

Sedalia Police Department Chief John DeGonia said in a news conference May 1 that the relationship had been consensual before it “eventually led to ‘you can’t leave.’ “

280-pound model lands mag cover: Tess Holliday

280-pound model lands mag cover: Tess Holliday, Tess Holliday is used to having lots of online admirers – she has more than 700,000 Instagram followers and 900,000 Facebook fans – but one of her fans actually ended up becoming her fiancé.

The plus size model, 29, first encountered her husband-to-be, Nick Holliday, when he reached out to her on Tumblr.

“He messaged me in 2012 and he said, ‘I love how you inspire other women,’ ” she tells PEOPLE. “I just remember thinking how cute he was, so we started talking and it quickly turned into a relationship.”

Nick says he was initially attracted to his future wife by her beauty, but he was really drawn in by her personal message – that everyone is beautiful no matter their size.

“She has an old Hollywood face, and I think that’s something that’s quite rare now, and something that I was taken by,” he says. “But once I started following her Tumblr, I realized what she was doing. I messaged her with no subtext and no expectations of a reply.”

Tess – who began using Nick’s last name professionally in January – says she bonded with the Australian publicist over shared interests, including vintage fashion and feminism. After nine months of talking online, Nick came to visit her in Los Angeles.

“I already knew I wanted to marry him before I met him,” she says. “He appreciated me in a way that no one else had. I think being a feminist himself, he understood what it was like to really appreciate a woman’s body – not in a sexual way, but in that every person is beautiful the way that they are.”

Three years after they started talking, Nick moved to L.A. permanently and now works as her manager.

“He’s worked in entertainment, so he gets that side of industry, and he also has my best interests in mind,” Tess says of why their business relationship works. “He knows me better than everybody.”

Tess isn’t the only fan of Nick’s: Her 9-year-old son Rylee has given him his stamp of approval as well.

“They love each other,” Tess says. “They’re like best friends. They both love comic books and Star Wars and Legos, and they love to read. They have a lot in common and they’re both very hard-headed.”

Kim slams ‘do nothing’ critics: Kim Kardashian Slams Critics

Kim slams ‘do nothing’ critics: Kim Kardashian Slams Critics, Kim Kardashian slams critics who accuse her of being famous for doing nothing in a new interview, challenging her haters to pull off her work lifestyle. Watch below.

Kardashian makes the comments in another clip from her new “Access Hollywood” interview. As Gossip Cop reported, the sit-down chat with Billy Bush features the reality star opening up about Bruce Jenner’s transition, and revealing that she made the first move on Kanye West six months after splitting from Kris Humphries. In the final portion of the interview, Kardashian is asked how she feels about people dissing her career.

“I get more fed up with questions, like, I was traveling recently and I was doing a press day and people were like, ‘How do you feel when people say what do you do?’ And I’m like, ‘I’m here working aren’t I? Like, I’m here to promote something,’” says Kardashian. “I said, ‘Hey why don’t you do this: Tell someone else that you think can do it. Tell them to do everything that I’ve done in my career and see if they end up exactly where I’m at. Try it. Just try it. I dare you to try it.”

Much of the hate Kardashian receives comes through social media, and she admits to “sometimes” reading the critical messages. “I find it so weird that people follow you just to be negative,” she says. And while she claims she doesn’t “really spend the time” to block the offenders, Kardashian says she will pull the trigger if someone talks badly about daughter North.

With “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” now in season 10 and a new deal to continue the show already signed, detractors will have to accept that the famous family isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Kardashian tells Bush, “Every time we’re like, ‘Okay, our contracts are up. We’re not exciting, there’s nothing to share,’ and then there are things where we feel like there has got to be other people going through what we’re going through, and why don’t we just continue doing it while we’re having fun?”

“It’s still fun,” she adds. Check out the video below. What do you think of Kardashian’s comments?
