New York Explosion: Man Detonates Pipe Bomb In Attempted Terrorist Attack
On Monday, a man wearing a homemade pipe bomb detonated the explosive near Times Square at the Port Authority Bus Terminal. In one of New York City’s busiest commuter hubs, officials said.
Authorities identified the suspect as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah of Bangladesh. Police have called the Port Authority explosion an “attempted terrorist attack” that appears to be secluded.
From March 2012 to March 2015 Ullah held a Taxi & Limousine Commission license after which the license was not renewed, TLC spokesman Allan Fromberg said. It’s unclear “whether he drove for any particular base, or whether he simply got the license but didn’t drive at all,” Fromberg said.
Polls Suggest Senate Race A Toss-Up
Mic Network- A spate of competing polls in Alabama’s impending Senate special election were released Monday, which range from showing Democratic candidate Doug Jones with a 10-point lead over Republican Roy Moore, to Moore leading Jones by a comfortable nine-point margin.
The results suggest Tuesday’s special election is a toss-up between the two candidates, with pollsters holding different ideas about who might turn out in a race that’s been rocked by allegations of child molestation against Moore.
On Monday, Fox News dropped a poll showing Jones leading Moore, 50% to 40% — a result they attributed to higher Democratic enthusiasm.
“This appears to be a special, special election with blacks and young voters animated by a caustic Republican candidate and the chance of winning a statewide election with national implications, and at the same time some Republicans and many moderates are turned off by Moore, too,” Chris Anderson, a Democratic pollster who runs the Fox News poll with GOP pollster Daron Shaw, said in Fox News’ article on the survey.
Donovan Mcnabb Accused Of Sexual Harassment, 3 NFL Network Hosts Suspended
Philly.com- In an amended complaint to a wrongful termination lawsuit originally filed in October, Jami Cantor, a former wardrobe stylist with the NFL Network from 2006 until October 2016, accused McNabb of texting her explicit comments during his time as an analyst for the network.
The former Eagles quarterback was at the NFL Network from September 2012 until August 2013. McNabb was later fired by Fox Sports after pleading guilty to a DUI offense in 2015. He is now a radio host for ESPN, where he also makes regular appearances on shows like First Take.
McNabb did not respond to a request for comment. A spokeswoman for ESPN said, “We just learned of it and will begin an investigation.” The amended complaint was filed Monday.
The NFL Network has suspended Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans — all former NFL players — as it looks into the separate incidents of sexual harassment that Cantor alleged in her lawsuit. Former NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp, fired by the network in 2015 after having been arrested for soliciting prostitution, was also named in the lawsuit.
