Celine Dion: 5 things you may not know

Although superstar Celine Dion has ended her Las Vegas residency, the 51-year-old Grammy-winning singer shows no signs of slowing down. The singer is set to release her 27th album, “Courage,” in November and also embark on a world tour in September.

Here’s what you might not know about the “My Heart Will Go On” singer:

She started out singing in French

Celine Dion was born in Charlemagne, Quebec, Canada. When she was younger, the singer’s French albums earned her notoriety in Canada, and she became known as La P’tite Quebecoise (the little girl of Quebec). The French-Canadian singer has recorded numerous French albums.

She has 13 siblings

Dion is the youngest of 14 children. When she was just a baby, her family formed a singing group called Dion’s Family and toured Canada. Dion began singing with her musically inclined family when she was just 5 years old. With a modest upbringing and a house full of kids, the singer’s mom lay her littlest child to sleep in a drawer.

She met her husband when she was 12 years old

Dion met her late husband and “love of her life,” Rene Angelil, when she was just 12 years old. Dion and her mother sent a demo tape of a song to Angelil and after hearing the tape, he decided to sign her immediately. Angelil became Dion’s manager and molded her into one of the world’s most successful singers ever.

In 1988, when a romance developed between Dion and Angelil, the pair decided to keep the relationship a secret because of their 26-year age difference. The pair married in 1994 at Montreal’s Notre Dame Basilica in front of 500 guests in an elaborate ceremony that cost more than $500,000. Angelil died in 2016 at the age of 73 after a long battle with throat cancer.

Struggled with infertility

The singer struggled with infertility. Dion revealed that she underwent in vitro fertilization (IVF) to eventually get pregnant with her children, Rene-Charles and twins Nelson and Eddy, at age 42. The singer had to endure six rounds of IVF before she was pregnant with her miracle twins in 2010.

Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas was built exclusively for Celine Dion

The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas was built exclusively for Celine Dion. The singer began her Sin City residency in 2003 at Caesars Palace, performing 1,141 shows over 16 years. Dion originally signed on for 200 shows per year for three years and industry entertainment observers thought that was too much.

“I’m both proud and humbled by what we’ve accomplished at the Colosseum since we began 16 years ago when René and I first shared this dream,” she told the audience during her final show at the Colosseum. “This entire experience has been a huge part of my show business career, one that I will cherish forever.”

New York Giants safety Kamrin Moore arrested for punching woman, stepping on her neck: police

New York Giants player Kamrin Moore cold-cocked a paramour and stepped on her neck so hard it left bruises during a love-triangle brawl outside his home on Thursday that led to his arrest and suspension, according to the team and law-enforcement authorities.

“New York Giants safety Kamrin Moore was arrested over the weekend in Linden, New Jersey, for an alleged domestic violence-related incident. Moore has been suspended by the team pending further investigation,” the Giants tweeted Monday.

The victim, identified in a criminal complaint as “H.P.,” had been seeing the grid-ironer since January and decided to drop by his New Jersey house Thursday after he did not respond to her text messages.

But when she got there, another woman — identified by Moore’s lawyers as his “girlfriend” — came out to confront her and the pair began scrapping, according to the criminal complaint filed in Linden City municipal court.

Moore, 22, first “watched while they assaulted each other” but then, when gal-pal H.P. fell to the ground, the 200-lb. safety “placed his foot on her neck and applied pressure,” the court papers charge.

She managed to free herself and then shoved Moore for choking her — and that’s when he cold-cocked her on the left side of her face, the papers allege.

A friend took H.P. to Rahway Hospital, where she was treated for bruises and abrasions on her face and neck, according to the complaint.

Moore was charged with aggravated assault and aggravated assault as a domestic-violence incident, court papers say.

Netflix removes suicide scene from ‘13 Reasons Why’ following debate

Netflix Inc. removed a suicide scene from an episode of the first season of its popular teen drama “13 Reasons Why,” following a debate over whether the show increased the risk of teen suicide.

Based on the book of the same name, “13 Reasons Why” is about a depressed high-school girl who takes her own life and sends a classmate a tape explaining why she did it and who she blames.

In the final episode of the first season—the story is told in flashback—the protagonist Hannah is shown slitting her wrists in the bathtub.

While a Netflix spokesman declined to comment, the company tweeted early Tuesday that, on the advice of medical experts, it decided to edit the scene from the episode. The show is produced by Viacom Inc. ’s Paramount Television unit, which supported the decision to remove the scene, a person close to the show said.

“13 Reasons Why” has been praised by critics but criticized by health advocates and some media watchdogs who fear it glorifies suicide. The show, which premiered in March 2017, is set to start its third season this year.

A study funded by the National Institutes of Health suggested that “13 Reasons Why” was a factor in a rise in teen suicides. The study found that the suicide rate among people 10 to 17 went up by nearly a third in April 2017, the month after the show launched on Netflix. Some school officials issued warnings and guidance to parents about the show.

At the time of the study, a Netflix spokesman said, “It’s a critically important topic, and we have worked hard to ensure that we handle this sensitive issue responsibly.”

Missouri woman hunts down thieves, steals car back: report

A Missouri woman with no background in police work tracked down the suspects who stole her car, then stole the car right back, according to a Monday report.

Kansas City resident Danielle Reno told KCTV5 that her Toyota 4Runner was stolen while she was at a gas station with her daughter.

“I got out of my car, grabbed my daughter, and my car was gone,” Reno said.

Reno filed a report with authorities, then took matters into her own hands, the station reported.

By tracking purchases on her credit cards and the activity of her phone – which were in the stolen vehicle – Reno said she managed to narrow in on the suspects.

“We stalked this lady for 48 hours. She had no idea what we were doing,” Reno said.

A QuickTrip attendant told Reno the car thieves were on their way to an Applebee’s, KCTV5 reported. At the restaurant, Reno said she saw one of the suspects walk in with her wallet and keys.

“Got our waters and she walked in the door,” Reno said. “I about had a heart attack.”

Reno said left the restaurant and took back her car. She told KCTV5 that the interior of the car had been thrashed and she didn’t want to drive it anymore.

Clay County deputies reportedly arrested the suspects. Authorities told KCTV5 that citizens are ill-advised to conduct investigations on their own, but noted that Reno never put herself in danger.

Chilling new details emerge in Savannah Spurlock case

Westlake Legal Group Spurlock1 Chilling new details emerge in Savannah Spurlock case fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/kentucky fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/person/savannah-spurlock fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 534b94d9-6a92-5725-92c5-6aeb3d176083

A Kentucky State Police detective testified Monday that Savannah Spurlock’s body was found naked and wrapped in several black garbage bags in a 19-inch grave with her feet bound by tape.

The details were revealed during a preliminary hearing for David Sparks who is charged with abuse of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence.

Spurlock was spotted leaving a bar in Richmond, Ky., on Jan. 4 with three men before she vanished. Her disappearance prompted a seven-month-long search for the 23-year-old mother of four.

SAVANNAH SPURLOCK PERSON OF INTEREST ARRESTED ON DESECRATION CHARGES AFTER HUMAN REMAINS FOUND, COPS SAY

A rug was also found behind Spurlock’s body when it was discovered last week during a search of Sparks’ parents’ home in Garrard County, Ky, Lexington’s WTVQ reported. Detective Tye Chavies of the Kentucky State Police testified Monday that the rug came from Sparks’ bedroom in the home and that he sent a text to his sister on Jan. 5, asking her where she purchased the rug.

Sparks was later spotted on surveillance footage at Walmart purchasing a rug similar to that of the one found with Spurlock’s body, the detective said in court. Blood found in a closet in Sparks’ home matched Spurlock’s DNA, he said.

“A lot of stuff that he revealed that we didn’t know,” Spurlock’s friend Sabrina Speratos told Lancaster’s WKYT. “I personally didn’t know. That was rough. It’s emotional. It’s hard to talk about. You hope to never hear anything like that. It’s pretty gruesome.”

Sparks is the primary suspect in the case but so far has not been charged with murder.

After Monday’s hearing, the case was sent to a grand jury who will decide whether to indict Sparks on charges related to Spurlock’s disappearance. A cause of death has yet to be revealed. Authorities have not said if they plan to make more arrests related to the case.

Hannity: ‘The radicals are in charge’

Fox News’ Sean Hannity focused Monday night on the change within the Democratic Party, declaring once again that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is now the leader and that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is “powerless.”

“They are on the verge of an all-out civil war. Nancy Pelosi has lost complete control of her radical socialist base. Freshman Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, Congresswoman Tlaib and Omar and Ayanna Pressley are now running the show,” Hannity said on his television show.

STIREWALT: HOW PELOSI IS TRYING TO ‘TRAP’ REPUBLICANS FOLLOWING TRUMP’S COMMENTS

“Speaker Pelosi is now totally powerless.”

Hannity was reacting to past comments made by the four congresswomen who responded to President Trump’s controversial tweets Sunday calling for the progressive congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from.

Trump doubled down Monday calling out the lawmakers for their Anti-American “hate.”

Hannity warned that “radicals” within the Democratic Party will use identity politics to attack any that oppose them including other Democrats to “reshape America.”

“It does not matter what Speaker Pelosi says, what she does. The radicals who are in charge, anyone who opposes them of course quickly labeled xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist, sexist, and a bigot and want dirty air and water,” Hannity told his audience.

“The so-called ‘squad’ of far left freshmen congresswomen are now using identity politics even against members of their own party. The end goal is to fundamentally reshape America.”

The Fox News host also pointed out the influence this “wing” has on the Democratic presidential candidates.

“The base of the Democratic Party is so powerful that every 2020 hopeful has adopted their fringe socialist policies. And if they don’t adopt it completely they are trashed by many of the four,” Hannity said.

Hannity blasted the four congresswomen for calling for the impeachment of President Trump Monday during a press conference and for their vision of the country.

“They don’t want to improve this country. They want to remake this country into something we all know will fail,” Hannity said. “They want to impeach the one person that’s been standing in their way.”

Fox News’ Gregg Re contributed to this report.

Radiation levels in Marshall Islands higher than Fukushima, Chernobyl, study finds

Radiation levels across the Marshall Islands in the central Pacific Ocean, where the United States conducted more than 65 nuclear tests during the Cold War, are still alarmingly high — even higher than Fukushima and Chernobyl in some parts, a new study shows.

Researchers at Columbia University tested soil samples on four uninhabited isles and discovered that they contained concentrations of nuclear isotopes that are “significantly” higher than those found near the two disaster sites.

“All of these measurements are important due to the potential for repopulation of at least some of the atolls in the Marshall Islands,” explained Dr. David Krofcheck, of the physics department at the University of Auckland.

“Such measurements of the effects of nuclear weapons testing in the Marshall Islands must continue on a regular basis into the indefinite future,” he told the Science Media Centre.

Two of the isles where the soil was analyzed — Bikini and Enewetak — were used as “ground-zero” for US nuclear tests between 1946 and 1958. The others, Rongelap and Utirik, were affected by radioactive fallout from the largest of the 67 tests conducted, known as the Bravo test.

Researchers at Columbia said they aimed to “present a picture of current radiological conditions” in the region “by examining external gamma radiation and soil radionuclide activity concentrations.”

Their findings, which were published Monday in the journal PNAS, showed that gamma radiation in some areas were “well above” the legal exposure limit established in agreements between the US and Republic of the Marshall Islands.
