American Legion Is Teaching Teenagers How To Shoot Rifles – The Response Is Incredible

American Legion Is Teaching Teenagers How To Shoot Rifles – The Response Is Incredible


As a national conversation rages over the role of guns in school and the age of firearm purchases, one American Legion is doing their part to encourage responsible firearm training for teenagers.

An Arizona American Legion is hosting a Junior Shooting Sports Program to train teenagers between the ages of 10 to 17 how to responsibly use firearms. The kids practice firing competition air rifles inside the American Legion Post on a range in the building.




“It’s a very disciplined sport, a very structured sport,” said Michael Simon, American Legion Post commander told a local CBS affiliate. Simon is one of the American Legion instructors who regularly teaches the teens responsible firearm usage and targeting. Simon says that mastery of the sport can lead to the kids receiving college scholarships and even a shot at the Olympics.

Both the summer and winter Olympics feature some form of competitive shooting.

The American Legion is offing the courses and training to boys and girls at no cost. Simon says there has “never been an accident,” and that “All it takes is your time.”

Shock As Hit-And-Run Driver Suddenly Finds Out His Victims Are His Own Wife And Son (Photos)

A photo has shown the harrowing moment a alleged hit-and-run driver learned that the woman and child he mowed down when drunk were his own wife and son.

According to The Sun UK, the driver – named only as Mr Zhang – reportedly fled the scene of the accident after smashing into his wife’s electric scooter at 10:30pm last night.

Horrified witnesses found the stricken pair on a darkened road in China’s Shandong Province before calling an ambulance.

According to local cops, the son was declared dead at the scene while his mum remains in intensive care.

Mr Zhang was captured within hours of the horror smash and dragged to hospital to see his victims.

Bodycam footage shows him wailing in anguish after learning what he had done.

He told cops how all three of them had gone for dinner at a relative’s house – but he drove off in a van while his wife took their son on a scooter.

The pair were struck on the badly-lit street as they drove home.

He had allegedly been drinking before getting behind the wheel.

Russia releases 'Satan 2' missile test footage

Russia releases 'Satan 2' missile test footage

(CNN)-Russia's Ministry of Defense released video footage Friday of a test launch of its new intercontinental ballistic missile, the Sarmat.

The short video said the missile -- nicknamed "Satan 2" -- was launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Russia.
According to Russian state-run news agency Sputnik, the launch marked the second time the missile had been successfully fired. The first test was in December.

Sputnik also reported that the Sarmat missile is "capable of striking targets both via the North and South Poles."
The RS-28 Sarmat is designed to replace the Soviet-era Voevoda ICBM, known by the NATO designation SS-18 Satan.
A more capable missile, the RS-28 could loft its payload over a longer distance -- enabling it to cross the South Pole as well as the North Pole, the shortest route between Russia and the United States.
Russian state-run news agency TASS reported in 2016 that the missile would have a range exceeding 11,000 kilometers (6,835 miles) and that the warhead would weigh 100 tons.
                     Putin is brandishing his new arsenal -- but what does Russia have?

The Sarmat was one of the weapons Russian President Vladimir Putin mentioned in a speech this month boasting of new weaponry he said would render NATO defenses "completely useless." US officials played down the threat.
President Donald Trump said after a call with Putin last week that the two had discussed efforts to limit an arms race.
"The call had to do also with the fact that we will probably get together in the not-too-distant future so that we can discuss arms, we can discuss the arms race," Trump said.

US to require would-be immigrants to turn over social media handles

US to require would-be immigrants to turn over social media handles

US to require would-be immigrants to turn over social media handles

Washington (CNN)The Trump administration plans to require immigrants applying to come to the United States to submit five years of social media history, it announced Thursday, setting up a potential scouring of their Twitter and Facebook histories.

The move follows the administration's emphasis on "extreme vetting" of would-be immigrants to the US, and is an extension of efforts by the previous administration to more closely scrutinize social media after the San Bernardino terrorist attack.
According to notices submitted by the State Department on Thursday, set for formal publication on Friday, the government plans to require nearly all visa applicants to the US to submit five years of social media handles for specific platforms identified by the government -- and with an option to list handles for other platforms not explicitly required.

The administration expects the move to affect nearly 15 million would-be immigrants to the United States, according to the documents. That would include applicants for legal permanent residency. There are exemptions for diplomatic and official visas, the State Department said.
The decision will not take effect immediately -- the publication of the planned change to visa applications on Friday will start a 60-day clock for the public to comment on the move.

The potential scouring of social media postings by potential immigrants is sure to rankle privacy and civil liberties advocates, who have been vocal in opposing such moves going back to efforts by the Obama administration to collect such information on a more selective and voluntary basis.
Critics complain the moves, amid broader efforts by the administration, are not only invasive on privacy grounds, but also effectively limit legal immigration to the US by slowing the process down, making it more burdensome and making it more difficult to be accepted for a visa.

Federal authorities argue the moves are necessary for national security.
In addition to requiring the five years of social media history, the application will also ask for previous telephone numbers, email addresses, prior immigration violations and any family history of involvement in terrorist activities, according to the notice.
Since its early days, the administration has been telegraphing a desire to more closely dig through the backgrounds and social media histories of foreign travelers, but Thursday's move is the first time that it will formally require virtually all applicants to come to the US to disclose that information.

After the San Bernardino terrorist attack in 2015, greater attention was placed on immigrants' social media use, when it was revealed that one of the attackers had advocated jihad in posts on a private social media account under a pseudonym that authorities did not find before allowing her to come to the US.


The move by the Trump administration stops short of requiring passwords or access to those social media accounts, although then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly suggested last year that it was being considered.


The administration has been pursuing "extreme vetting" of foreigners as a centerpiece of its immigration and national security policy, including through the contentious travel ban that remains the subject of heavy litigation.

The body of Mavrodi turned out to be of no use to anyone

The body of Mavrodi turned out to be of no use to anyone


Behind the body of the founder of the financial pyramid of MMM Sergei Mavrodi, so far no one has turned to the morgue. This is written by Komsomolskaya Pravda.

The edition specifies that the body can be stored in the morgue for seven days. If no one wishes to take him away during this period, Mavrodi will be buried at the state expense.

Earlier it became known that the younger brother of Mavrodi Vyacheslav forbade burying his relative next to his parents.

62-year-old Mavrodi died on March 26 in Moscow after hospitalization with a complaint of pain in the heart. A source in medical circles told the radio station "Says Moscow" that the founder of MMM suffered from several chronic diseases, in particular ulcer and atherosclerosis, and he also had signs of drinking.

 Depositors of "MMM" folded for the funeral of Sergei Mavrodi


The funeral of the founder of the most famous in Russia financial pyramid "MMM" Sergei Mavrodi decided to pay his former depositors. This was reported by attorney Alexander Molokhov, who previously represented the interests of the deceased.

In an interview with RIA Novosti, Molokhov stressed that the depositors of the financial pyramid "MMM-2011" dumped at the funeral - it was founded after Mavrodi left prison, although formally he had nothing to do with it.

"Legally, the organization of the funeral took over his ex-wife, and paid a group of participants of the second pyramid" MMM-2011 ", - said the lawyer of RIA Novosti.

Earlier it became known that the brother of Mavrodi flatly refused to bury a relative on their family plot, and the ex-spouse of the swindler did not want to take part in the identification procedure.

Sergei Mavrodi died on March 26 in a Moscow hospital. He was unconsciously discovered by an incidental passer-by on one of the trolleybus stops near Savelovsky Station. Soon after hospitalization, he passed away.

Vatican scrambles after pope appears to deny existence of hell

Vatican scrambles after pope appears to deny existence of hell

Vatican scrambles after pope appears to deny existence of hell

The Vatican has scrambled to clarify comments made by Pope Francis to a well-known Italian journalist that appeared to deny the existence of hell.

The Holy See issued a terse statement saying a lengthy article published in La Repubblica on Wednesday by Eugenio Scalfari, 93, the newspaper’s founder, was “the fruit of his reconstruction” and not “a faithful transcription of the Holy Father’s words”.

While the Vatican conceded that Scalfari, an atheist who struck up a friendship with Francis in 2013, had held a private meeting with the pontiff before the Easter weekend, it said an interview had not been granted.

During the meeting Scalfari asked the pope where “bad souls” go, to which he was quoted as responding: “They are not punished. Those who repent obtain God’s forgiveness and take their place among the ranks of those who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot be forgiven disappear. A hell doesn’t exist, the disappearance of sinning souls exists.”

The Vatican said the “literal words pronounced by the pope are not quoted” and that “no quotation of the article should be considered as a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father”.

Scalfari is said to pride himself on not taking notes or recording high-profile interviews. But this is not the first time he has been accused of misrepresenting the pope: in 2014 he was rebuked by the Vatican for an article saying Francis had abolished sin.

The friendship has been criticised in the past, with Scalfari once saying that it was the pope who asked for the meetings as he liked to “exchange ideas and sentiments with non-believers”.

The Catholic church’s teachings affirm the existence of hell and its eternity, saying “the chief punishment of hell is eternal separation of God”.

Pope Benedict XVI said in 2007 that hell “really exists and is eternal, even if nobody talks about it much anymore”, while in 1999 Pope John Paul II announced that hell was “the ultimate consequence of sin itself … rather than a place, hell indicates the state of those who freely and definitively separate themselves from God, the source of all life and joy”.

The controversy came as Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 prisoners at Rome’s Regina Coeli prison on Holy Thursday. Among the inmates were two Muslims, an Orthodox Christian and a Buddhist. He told them: “Everyone has the opportunity to change life and one cannot judge.”

It was the fourth time since becoming pope that he held mass in an Italian prison. “I am a sinner like you but today I represent Jesus … God never abandons us, never tires of forgiving us,” he added.

Rangasthalam movie release update | rangasthalam trailer

indian most anticipated movie:Rangasthalam movie release |rangasthalam trailer


Rangasthalam
Director: Sukumar
Cast: Ram Charan, Samantha Akkineni, Aadhi Pinisetty, Jagpathi Babu, Prakash Raj
Rating: 3/5

A man with a God complex (played by Jagpathi Babu), addressed only as president by people, rules a small village, Rangasthalam, in the 1980s Andhra Pradesh. The people of the village are uneducated and completely under the thumb of president and his cohorts. Caught in the vicious cycle of poverty and high rate of interest charged by minions of the president, the villagers are waiting to be liberated. This, as Sukumar’s film tells us soon enough, will be done by two brothers Chitti Babu (Ram Charan) and Kumar Babu (Aadhi Pinisetty).

However, before the oppressed overthrow the oppressor, we will be shown how lack of education leaves villagers open to exploitation, how president’s men take advantage of simple village folk to levy high interest rates and how any voice that is raised in opposition is silenced without mercy. So far, Rangasthalam keeps it to the formula and the clichéd good vs evil story.

The villain’s God complex makes him larger than life, allowing Ram Charan’s hero to equally grow in stature too. The anticipation of the final kill, that confrontation between good and evil also keeps on building throughout Rangasthalam.


Some shots underline this further – the president’s entry shot has him being carried on a chair, with the holy thread visible clearly, sharply in contrast to the surrounding is quite similar to visarjan of any God in our country. Even the dead are expected to respect him and his residence is treated like a temple by the villagers.



The fight is not easy. The oppressor has superstition, loyalty, political power and fear on his side. Villagers have been ruled by one man for 30 years and that has resulted in blind belief that the president is above everyone else.


Kumar Babu, who has returned from Dubai, cannot stand what is happening to his village and hence stands up to the president and files nomination for the upcoming election. He has the support of his brother Chitti, giving him strength to do what others have not attempted so far. But going against the grain, Chitti is worried about his brother, in fact scared enough to doubt everyone. Usually, the lead hero, in this case Ram Charan, is the one who leads such fights. They are fearless and go against anyone who stands in their way. In Rangasthalam, however, we have Ram Charan stand arm-in-arm with onscreen brother Aadhi but at the same time fearful of his safety. This equation adds a refreshing twist to the character of the hero.

Cinematography by Rathnavelu has added great value to the film. The chase sequence in the night, especially when Chitti Babu is taken over by rage, is shot so well and accompanied by great background score. It adds to the drama that unfolds on screen.

Samantha Akkineni as Rama Lakshmi is charming. It is because of Rama Lakshmi that the fight begins, making her incidental to the plot of a commercial movie. This is the first film in which Ram Charan and Samantha have worked together, and their chemistry keeps the first half of the film lighthearted.

Rangamma athamma, played by Anasuya Bharadwaj, is a memorable supporting character whose equation with Chitti stands out. The film really belongs to director Sukumar who manages to take up an age-old formula and make it work with his vision.

Roseanne conner Has become a Trump supporter:honest about life in Trump America

Roseanne Conner Has become a Trump supporter:honest about life in Trump America

 

Roseanne conner Has become a Trump supporter:honest about life in Trump America



Thirty years have passed since "Roseanne" burst onto the scene, which makes it ripe fodder for nostalgia. Yet ABC's revival quickly moves past the kick of seeing the gang back together, going out of its way to awkwardly embrace politics. While the title character's cackle has been a big a big part of the promo campaign, the likelihood of viewers drowning that out with laughter of their own appears slim.


There's nothing wrong with the notion that Roseanne Barr's eponymous blue-collar character would support President Trump, as the comic herself has off screen. But "Roseanne" seemingly veers out of its lane to gin up that dialogue, placing Roseanne at odds with her sister Jackie (Laurie Metcalf, who probably wishes this wasn't the first place people see her after her Oscar-nominated turn in "Lady Bird").


Like everything else about the show, the politics thus feel more abrasive than clever. The one-liners fly fast and furiously, naturally, as the Conners deal with more mundane problems, such as their grown-up kids and grandchildren -- Darlene (Sara Gilbert) is conveniently forced to move in with them -- while glossing over that little matter of Dan (John Goodman) having, you know, died.

The producers are more creative regarding the fact that two different actresses (Lecy Goranson, Sarah Chalke) played the couple's older daughter, Becky, although frankly, that sort of inventiveness is in distinctly short supply.


Roseanne gradually became a handful for ABC by making star-sized demands when the show became an unexpected hit, discarding producers during the show's heyday as if they were temporary Christmas help. This time, executives have handed her the keys to the kingdom from the get-go, clearly hoping the name alone would do most of the heavy lifting ratings-wise.
That might work initially, as "Will & Grace" has for NBC, and with CBS planning a "Murphy Brown" revival. Still, the result here is a show that should conjure a few smiles among those content to see the renewed interplay of the characters, but which exhibits none of the creative spark necessary to invigorate a comeback that transparently exists because the cast was willing and the network desperate to make some noise.


Notably, "Roseanne" is just one of three new sitcoms ABC is introducing the same week, and while the others don't have three decades of history in their corner, the concepts do possess a retro flavor.
Adapted from a Danish series, "Splitting Up Together" feels like an ABC sitcom from the 1990s, about a couple ("The Office's" Jenna Fischer, Oliver Hudson) that grows closer after their divorce.
As romantic comedies go, it's a perfectly durable (if familiar) concept, the problem being that while there's a movie in it, as a series, the teasing-out process feels strained after only a couple episodes.
"Alex, Inc.," meanwhile, stars Zach Braff ("Scrubs"), who doubles as one of the producers, as a guy who chucks his career as a radio producer to pursue his dream of launching a podcast company, where he intends to tell "stories that matter."


Based on Alex Blumberg's podcast "Startup," the word "podcast" is about the only thing that makes "Alex, Inc." feel like a 21st-century enterprise, from the title character's adorable yet precocious sitcom children to his supportive if understandably concerned wife (Tiya Sircar). The show also features "The Sopranos'" Michael Imperioli as Alex's peculiar cousin, who assists him with the fledgling enterprise.


As one of the centerpieces of ABC's spring hopes, "Roseanne" does figure to benefit from a built-in curiosity factor. But while there's always some excitement in reuniting an old band, this one mostly winds up belting out a tune equivalent to Roseanne's legendary version of the Star-Spangled Banner.

Trump floats using military budget to pay for border wall

Trump floats using military budget to pay for border wall


Donald Trump is floating the idea of using the military’s budget to pay for his long-promised border wall with Mexico.

Trump raised the idea with the House speaker, Paul Ryan, at a meeting last week, according to a person familiar with the discussion who spoke on condition of anonymity.

And he has tweeted that building “a great Border Wall” is “all about National Defense” and called to “Build WALL through M!” – presumably meaning the military.

Departments have limited authority to reprogram funds without congressional approval.

Trump threatened to veto the omnibus spending bill last week in part because it did not include the $25bn he wanted to build his wall, one of his top campaign promises.

Trump has repeatedly insisted he would make Mexico pay for the wall.

Mexico has refused.

The White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, would not discuss the plan at her regular briefing, telling reporters: “I can’t get into the specifics of that at this point.”

She said Trump “still has plans to look at potential ways” for Mexico to pay for it.

UNBELIEVABLE! 60 minutes-Stormy Daniels said these about President trump

UNBELIEVABLE! 60 minutes-Stormy Daniels said these about President trump (excerpts )

  
Stormy Daniels, in '60 Minutes' interview, says she had sex with Donald Trump once
In her long-awaited interview, Stormy Daniels told "60 Minutes" that she had sex with Donald Trump only one time in 2006 -- despite the future president's repeated attempts to continue the affair. 
                   
PHOTO: Stormy Daniels arrives for the 49th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, on Feb. 11, 2007.
Stormy Daniels, a former porn star whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told Anderson Cooper that she slept with the then-reality TV star after the two met at a celebrity golf tournament. The two went to his room and Clifford said she "realized exactly what I'd gotten myself into."
"And I was like, 'Ugh, here we go,'" she said with laughter. "And I just felt like maybe -- it was sort of -- I had it coming for making a bad decision for going to someone's room alone and I just heard the voice in my head, 'Well, you put yourself in a bad situation and bad things happen, so you deserve this.'"
She stressed that the encounter was consensual.
"I am not a victim," she said. 
           PHOTO: Stormy Daniels attends the 2016 Adult Video News Awards on Jan. 23, 2016 in Las Vegas.
Clifford said she met with Trump alone again, but the two did not have sex. She said decided to meet with him again because the two had discussed her making an appearance on Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" show.
Trump, through representatives, has denied allegations of an affair with Daniels, or any involvement with the agreement for her silence. 

Beyond the alleged affair, Clifford told Cooper that after she had been offered $15,000 in 2011 by "In Touch" to tell her story, she says Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, threatened to sue the magazine if the story ran. In Touch did not run the story, and Clifford says she never received the money.
A few weeks later, Clifford -- who said she was with her infant daughter at the time -- says she was threatened by a man in a parking lot in Las Vegas. 

"And a guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,'" she said. "And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, 'That's a beautiful little girl. It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom.' 

"And then he was gone," she said.
Clifford said she took the mysterious encounter as a direct threat. 

"I was rattled," she added, who said she never saw the man again but would remember him if she did. "I remember going into the workout class. And my hands are shaking so much. I was afraid I was gonna -- drop her."
