Clark James Gable III, host of the reality TV show “Cheaters” and grandson of late Academy Award-winning actor Clark Gable, died of an accidental drug overdose, according to the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office.

Gable had a mix of illicit fentanyl, oxycodone and alprazolam in his system, the medical examiner’s office told Fox News on Friday. Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. In 2017, 59.8 percent of opioid-related deaths involved fentanyl, according to federal data.

Gable died February 22 at a Dallas Hospital. His fiancée found him unresponsive in his bed, according to TMZ.

CLARK GABLE’S GRANDSON, CLARK GABLE III, DEAD AT 30 

Gable hosted “Cheaters” since 2012. The show features confrontations with people suspected of being unfaithful.

His grandfather, Clark Gable, who was the star of “Gone With the Wind” and winner of the best actor Oscar for the 1934 film, “It Happened One Night,” died in 1960 in Los Angeles.

Gable and his fiancée had an infant daughter.

Clark James Gable III is known for hosting “Cheaters.”

After his death, his manager, David Rubini, spoke to Fox News about how Gable had been devoted to his fiancée and daughter.

“Clark was a good family man and loved his fiancée Summer,” Rubini said. “He proudly doted on his beautiful new baby daughter Shore. Clark loved… his siblings and relatives with all his heart. All he ever talked about when he was traveling, or away shooting, was how much he missed and loved all his family.”

“When Clark passed, he was just coming into his own both personally and professionally,” said Rubini. “He was in the film ‘Heckle’ that’s currently in post-production. It’s scheduled to premiere at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, on Halloween.”

E. coli outbreak likely linked to ground beef, CDC says

Westlake Legal Group e-coli-outbreak-likely-linked-to-ground-beef-cdc-says E. coli outbreak likely linked to ground beef, CDC says fox-news/health/infectious-disease/outbreaks fox-news/health/infectious-disease/foodborne-illness fox news fnc/health fnc article Alexandria Hein 64fb4c71-4868-5b3f-a4ee-8d67b67781ad

The mystery behind an E. coli outbreak that sickened dozens of people across six states appears to have been solved, with health officials reporting ground beef as the likely source of illness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday said that the outbreak has hospitalized 17 people and that patients had reported eating ground beef both at home and at restaurants before falling ill.

“Traceback investigations are ongoing to determine the source of ground beef supplied to grocery stores and restaurant where ill people ate,” said an update on the CDC website. “At this time, no common supplier, distribution, or brand of ground beef has been identified.”

SWALLOWED COINS, BATTERIES SPARK RISE IN TOT ER VISITS

Despite the findings, the agency said it is not advising people to avoid consuming ground beef, but recommends consumers and restaurants handle it safely and cook it thoroughly to avoid further illnesses.

The agency said it is continuing to investigate the source of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O103 infections and would continue to update its findings. The outbreak has affected residents in Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia, with 46 cases reported in Kentucky. No deaths have been reported in relation to the outbreak.

While most strains of E. coli are harmless, some are pathogenic and can cause illness, which typically includes stomach cramps and diarrhea, according to the CDC. The bacteria can be transmitted through contaminated water or food and sometimes through contact with other people and animals.

CONGO’S EBOLA OUTBREAK MIGHT BE DECLARED GLOBAL EMERGENCY

While most people recover after several days, some E. coli infection cases can be life-threatening. This is especially true for pregnant women, newborns, older or elderly adults and those with weakened immune systems.

The CDC recommends thorough handwashing, washing fruits and vegetables, cooking meat thoroughly and avoiding cross-contamination in food preparation areas as ways to prevent E. coli illness.

Zach Johnson, in Masters mishap, accidentally hits ball during practice swing: ‘That’s embarrassing’

Zach Johnson was flushed, and a little embarrassed, on Friday after he started off the second round of the Masters with an awkward stumble.

Johnson, known as one of the shorter hitters in golf, was practicing his swing on the 13th tee at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga., when he accidentally hit the ball with his driver, knocking it into the tee marker and launching the ball off to the left.

“Oh s–t!” he could be heard saying with shock. [Editors’ Note: The video of the incident, seen below, contains graphic language.]

A frustrated Johnson, unsure of the rules, was told by fellow golfers Matt Kuchar and Ian Poulter the swing didn’t count, as the shot wasn’t intentional – the ball could be re-teed.

Under Rule 6.2b(5) on starting a hole: “If a teed ball falls off the tee or is knocked off the tee by the player before the player has made a stroke at it, it may be re-teed anywhere in the teeing area without penalty.”

Johnson, happy with the ultimate outcome, couldn’t help but be embarrassed nonetheless

“Y’all can laugh. That’s embarrassing,” he said taking another practice swing.

Boston Globe yanks Op-Ed in which writer reveals he wishes he urinated on Bill Kristol’s dinner

Westlake Legal Group boston-globe-yanks-op-ed-in-which-writer-reveals-he-wishes-he-urinated-on-bill-kristols-dinner Boston Globe yanks Op-Ed in which writer reveals he wishes he urinated on Bill Kristol's dinner Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics fox news fnc/us fnc article ab93b56b-ee01-5ec6-997c-9006755540c6

The Boston Globe removed an Op-Ed from its website one day after it posted the piece written by a former waiter who expressed regret he didn’t urinate on the dinner of a conservative pundit and hoped outgoing Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen would be kept unemployed and face confrontation in public over what he deemed “ethnic cleansing.”

The Boston Globe did not return Fox News’ request for comment, but according to a note to readers on the paper’s opinion page, the column was taken off the website because it did not receive proper editorial scrutiny. The paper also stressed that the column’s author, Luke O’ Neil, is not a staff writer.

“The Globe Opinion page has removed from its website an April 10 column by Luke O’Neil on former homeland security chief Kirstjen Nielsen because it did not receive sufficient editorial oversight and did not meet Globe standards. The Globe regrets its lack of vigilance on the matter. O’Neil is not on staff,” the note read.

BOSTON GLOBE OPINION WRITER WISHED HE PEED ON BILL KRISTOL’S DINNER, SAYS NIELSEN MUST BE BLACKBALLED

“Keep Kirstjen Nielsen unemployed and eating Grubhub over her kitchen sink,” read the headline of the article published on Wednesday, written by O’Neil, an occasional writer for the Guardian, with bylines as well in The New York Times, New York magazine, and elsewhere.

“One of the biggest regrets of my life is not pissing in Bill Kristol’s salmon,” read the article’s first sentence before it was shortly scrubbed, with the Globe issuing a prominent editor’s note saying that the previous tone wasn’t appropriate.

“A version of this column as originally published did not meet Globe standards and has been changed. The Globe regrets the previous tone of the piece,” the note read.

On Thursday, the entire article was axed.

The piece also accused Nielsen of being a “reluctant triggerman for Donald Trump’s inhumane policies of ethnic cleansing” and called for throwing out current and former administration officials from restaurants over the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance enforcement of illegal immigration practices that existed prior to Trump’s election.

O’Neil wrote that the 2016 election “was the last time I remember being proud to be an American.”  Last year, Nielsen, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and others from the administrationwere forced to leave restaurants due to rowdy protesters.

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: KIRSTJEN NIELSEN ‘OVERSAW ONE OF THE LARGEST-SCALE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN HISTORY’

The author then criticized media figures for “scolding” the protesters who ushered the officials from public places, stating that he supports America becoming a country where Republicans aren’t allowed to eat at certain restaurants.

O’Neil admitted that the situation at the southern border predates the Trump administration, and added that members of both the Trump and Obama administrations should be sent to prison, or at least thrown out of a restaurant.

O’Neil’s current status with The Boston Globe was not available.

Students at Mormon-owned BYU urge honor code compassion

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Students at Mormon-owned BYU urge honor code compassion fox-news/us/religion/christianity fox-news/us/education/college fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc BRADY McCOMBS Associated Press article 1171de4a-2c81-5f27-a513-0f412bbe6b25

Several hundred students at Mormon-owned Brigham Young University chanted “If God forgives me, why can’t you?” during a protest Friday aimed at pushing college officials to be more compassionate with punishments for violators of rules banning things that are commonplace at other colleges — including drinking, premarital sex, beards and piercings.

The demonstration was part of an informal campaign that started with an Instagram account created earlier this year by a former student who had a negative experience with the college’s honor code office. That opened a flood of accounts from other students claiming they had negative experiences over transgressions and punishments.

People held signs such as “Stop playing God” and “Practice compassion” on the campus in Provo, south of Salt Lake City. Riley Mabry, a 21-year-old student from Memphis, Tennessee, carried one with a picture of Jesus and the words, “The only big brother I need watching me.”

“We shouldn’t live in fear of messing up,” said Mabry, who is bisexual. “That doesn’t align with the teachings of the church. One of the biggest tenets is that we are capable of repentance and forgiveness.”

Some students want parts of the honor code changed and others want punishments reduced, saying they agreed to adhere to the code when choosing to attend BYU, which is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Nearly all students are members of the faith. Current punishments for violations range from discipline to suspension and expulsion.

The “Restore Honor” group that organized the protest wants the honor code office to be more forgiving and less judgmental and more transparent, said freshman Grant Frazier.

He said students who are investigated and punished by the honor code office often end up unhappy with BYU and have their spiritual growth stunted.

“I love BYU and I love the gospel,” said Frazier. “But we just think that our university can be doing a little better.”

This is the latest unwanted attention for BYU’s honor code, which was criticized in 2016 by female students who spoke out against the school opening honor-code investigations of students who reported sexual abuses to police. The college changed the policy to ensure that students who report sexual abuse would no longer be investigated for honor code violations.

University spokeswoman Carri Jenkins said Friday in a statement that BYU wants all students to have a positive experience and are monitoring the conversations on social media and arranging meetings with students and the director of the honor code office, Kevin Utt.

The university posted a Q&A with Utt earlier this week in which he said the rules exist to “protect the interests of the community and guide those whose behavior is not in accordance with its policies.” He said 10-15 students are expelled due to honor code violations each year with the rest remaining enrolled. The college has about 33,000 students.

Actions taken against violators are “intended to develop students’ moral and ethical decision-making,” Utt said. There is no firm set of punishments, he said, because decisions are based on context, motivation, intent and openness.

BYU graduate Brayden Smith said he was suspended after he turned himself for something that happened with his girlfriend, declining to provide specifics because he did not feel comfortable doing so. Smith said he was left spiritually damaged after he was required to perform 35 hours of community service each month and was banned from using social media or dating apps.

“There’s gigantic dark mark on my collegiate experience,” said Smith.

The code has a section dedicated to “homosexual behavior,” which echoes the religion’s belief that being gay isn’t a sin, but engaging in same-sex intimacy is. It includes a clause stating that “all forms of physical intimacy that that give expression to homosexual feelings” is prohibited.

Amy Jacobs, a lesbian student, said the rules should be the same for gay and heterosexual couples, who are allowed to hold hands and kiss.

The senior history major said she has lived in fear that someone would report her for an innocuous hug with another woman.

She held a sign that said, “Report me, I’m gay,” a sarcastic nod to a common complaint among students that a culture of tattle-telling exists at the university since the honor code accepts reports of violations from other students.

“I’m afraid of the honor code office,” said Jacobs, 21, of Kaysville, Utah. “I kind of hate myself here.”

Jacobs said she has thought about transferring to another college but stayed at BYU because she had dedicated so much time to her studies toward a history degree and had good mentoring professors.

“BYU is a good education and I want to love it, but I just don’t,” said Jacobs, who will graduate this spring. “If I stayed a BYU any longer, it would kill me.”

Woman diagnosed with asthma later discovers she has cureless chronic condition: ‘Take care of your lungs’

Westlake Legal Group woman-diagnosed-with-asthma-later-discovers-she-has-cureless-chronic-condition-take-care-of-your-lungs Woman diagnosed with asthma later discovers she has cureless chronic condition: 'Take care of your lungs' Madeline Farber fox-news/health/respiratory-health/copd fox-news/health/respiratory-health/asthma fox news fnc/health fnc article 4739d5cf-a955-561a-8704-8793c0605896

A woman who was initially told she had asthma would receive a diagnosis years later of a more serious condition that affects some 16 million people in the U.S. alone.

Midge Webb told Yahoo Lifestyle this week that she first began having difficulty breathing while at work, saying she would often become short of breath while working at her nursing job and was forced to take breaks.

WOMAN CLAIMS LIFE WAS ‘RUINED’ AFTER HER ‘LEGS WERE CRUSHED’ ON LOG FLUME RIDE

“I kept thinking, ‘Hey, I’m having trouble breathing here,’” she told the news site. She went to see a pulmonologist who diagnosed her with asthma and prescribed her two inhalers, one for everyday use and another for emergencies. But they didn’t seem to alleviate her symptoms.

“I just didn’t feel like I was getting enough air in my lungs. It made me feel anxious because, if you can’t breathe, nothing else matters,” she said.

Eight years later, with no improvement, the woman who was diagnosed with asthma at age 40, told the news outlet her breathing troubles forced her to limit her physical activity. Frustrated, Webb again visited a pulmonologist who then diagnosed her with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease — more commonly known as COPD.

Webb, who also said she was forced to retire due to the condition, now uses supplemental oxygen at night to sleep and sometimes around the house depending on what she’s doing.

Her symptoms also worsen when she’s around someone who smokes, she said.

“If I come out of the airport and someone is smoking, it locks my lungs up immediately,” explained Webb.

COPD is a chronic lung disease that causes “airflow blockage and breathing-related problems,” per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Symptoms typically include coughing or wheezing, excess phlegm, shortness of breath and trouble taking deep breaths. While there is no cure, there are treatments options for the disease, which usually worsens over time.

Those with severe childhood asthma can sometimes develop COPD later on. In fact, the American Lung Association says children who suffer from “severe, persistent asthma are nearly 32 times more likely to develop COPD in adulthood.”

That said, most people who develop the disease have a history of smoking, according to the association.

SWALLOWED TOYS, BATTERIES SPARK RISE IN ER VISITS

Webb, now 59, works on the American Lung Association’s patient advisory panel to inform others about the illness, according to Yahoo Lifestyle.

“Take care of your lungs and don’t smoke. It’s not worth it,” she said.

The Latest: Monday bond hearing for suspect in church fires

The Latest on the arrest of a suspect in recent arson fires at black churches in Louisiana (all times local):

3 p.m.

A bond hearing has been set for the suspect in three recent arson fires at African American churches in Louisiana.

The clerk of court’s office in St. Landry Parish says the bond hearing for 21-year-old Holden Matthews is set for 9 a.m. Monday before Judge James Doherty.

Matthews is the son of a St. Landry sheriff’s deputy. He was arrested Wednesday on charges of arson of a religious building. Authorities suspect him of torching three black churches in 10 days. His attorney did not return a call for comment Friday.

___

6 a.m.

No known criminal record. No known history of violence. One friend called him an introverted animal lover. Another said he was a “very sweet guy” with a racially diverse group of friends.

But 21-year-old Holden Matthews is now the lone suspect in the torching of three African American churches in and around Opelousas, Louisiana.

The arrest of the son of a local sheriff’s deputy shocked two friends who spoke to The Associated Press.

Meanwhile, pastors of the churches expressed relief that the mystery had apparently been solved.

Louisiana scientists drop dead alligator into sea, watch as it’s devoured by giant ‘pill bugs’

Westlake Legal Group louisiana-scientists-drop-dead-alligator-into-sea-watch-as-its-devoured-by-giant-pill-bugs Louisiana scientists drop dead alligator into sea, watch as it’s devoured by giant ‘pill bugs’ Madeline Farber fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/louisiana fox-news/science/wild-nature/reptiles fox-news/science/planet-earth/oceans fox-news/science fox news fnc/science fnc article 74e9134b-0410-571e-a74a-289c5433519b

Louisiana scientists reached new depths in their research in February when they sent three dead alligators plummeting to the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.

Researchers with the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) used the carcasses to “examine the role of alligators in biodiversity and carbon cycling in the deep oceans,” Craig McClain, a researcher with LUMCON who worked on the experiment, wrote in a blog post. Apparently, food 2,000 meters below the gulf’s surface can be hard to come by.

GREAT WHITE SHARK RESCUED BY SOUTH AFRICAN SURFERS, LIFEGUARDS AFTER GETTING TRAPPED ON ROCKY COAST

A video captured of the event shows multiple giant isopods (scientifically known as Bathynomus giganteus) feeding on at least one of the carcasses. The pink, football-sized creatures (which are basically giant pill bugs, per Sciencealert) took roughly a day to find the food, soon swarming the gator hoping to get their taste, as the scavengers can sometimes go multiple years without food, according to the Aquarium of the Pacific.

“I was surprised there were already giant isopods all over it,” the researchers say in the video. “I thought it would take a while for them to get the chemical cues that would allow them to sort of locate a food fall like an alligator.”

The research, the team explained on Youtube alongside their video, will help scientists learn more about “deep-sea food webs, ancient food webs (because maybe some species eating the gators ate now-extinct reptiles like mosasaurs)” and, lastly, “how materials created on land sustain and impact ocean food webs.”

The team also chose to use alligator carcasses as “prior work as focused primarily on whales and other cetaceans, pinnipeds, large fish such as tuna, and elasmobranchs. However, it’s very likely that marine reptiles both currently, and even prehistorically, are an important source of carbon in the deep oceans,” McClain wrote. “Before the existence of whales, perhaps large marine reptiles like ichthyosaurs, mosasaurs, and plesiosaurs hosted diverse and endemic invertebrate communities on sunken carcasses, similar to modern-day whale falls and contributed significantly to the deep-sea carbon budget.”

According to Sciencealert, smaller organisms likely took to the carcass after the giant isopods had their share.

An American Airlines passenger jumped from a grounded plane after landing at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) on Friday morning.

The crew of American Airlines flight 1346, which originated in Minneapolis, called ahead for law enforcement to meet the aircraft shortly after 6 a.m. after a passenger became disruptive during the flight, the carrier confirmed to Fox News.

“Once the flight arrived at the gate, the passenger opened one of the doors and jumped off the aircraft,” according to the airline.

“Law enforcement and paramedics responded.”

According to Phoenix police, during the flight a 25-year-old passenger began touching passengers’ faces and spraying them with some kind of liquid from a spray bottle, the Arizona Republic reported. A witness who spoke with the outlet had said the man was also swearing and hitting multiple passengers.

“He landed on the ground approximately 10 feet below, sustaining minor injuries. Workers at the airport stopped the man and he was taken into custody by Phoenix Police officers without incident. He was transported to a local hospital to be treated for his injuries,” police added, per the Republic.

Ashley Judd continues to take a strong stance in the pro-choice movement as a three-time rape survivor.

Judd, 50, shared at a Women in the World panel discussion Thursday that one of the times she was raped, she became pregnant.

“I’m very thankful I was able to access safe and legal abortion,” she told moderator Katie Couric and the audience. “Because the rapist, who is a Kentuckian, as am I, and I reside in Tennessee, has paternity rights in Kentucky and Tennessee. I would’ve had to co-parent with a rapist.”

Couric noted that Judd was one of 50 Hollywood actors who boycotted Georgia’s Living Infants Fairness and Equality Act, also known as the “heartbeat” bill. The legislation bans abortions after a heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

“Democracy starts with our skin,” Judd, who is also a #MeToo advocate, said at the panel. “We’re not supposed to regulate what we choose to do with our insides.”

In March, Alyssa Milano tweeted the full list of actors who have signed on to oppose the bill, which included both men and women in Hollywood like Judd, David Arquette, Debra Messing, Mandy Moore, Amy Schumer, Ben Stiller and Don Cheadle.
