A 22-year-old skateboarder pulled off an incredible feat at the X Games in Minneapolis on Saturday.

Mitchie Brusco became the first person to nail a 1260 in skateboarding history in men’s Big Air on the MegaRamp. He made three and a half rotations before landing the move.

The California native earned praise from Tony Hawk – who was the first skateboarder to pull off a 900 when he did it at the X Games in 1999.

However, the trick only earned Brusco a score of 89.66 and he finished in second place in the competition. Elliot Sloan won the event with a score of 91.66.

Baltimore recorded its 200thhomicide of 2019 this weekend as the city inches closer to its fifth consecutive year passing the 300-homicide mark.

A 32-year-old woman was found sitting in her car outside of an apartment complex Saturday afternoon with gunshot wounds to her head and chest, the Baltimore Sun reported. Officers who responded to the scene tried to help the woman, but she was pronounced dead at a local hospital about an hour later.

Police now are searching for a man last seen wearing a black t-shirt and red sneakers, who was spotted running away from the location where the shooting happened, the newspaper added.

Statistics compiled by the Baltimore Sun show the city is nearing closer to its fifth consecutive year of having more than 300 homicides.

Google-owned artificial intelligence can predict acute kidney injury before doctors

Westlake Legal Group AP19177468765509 Google-owned artificial intelligence can predict acute kidney injury before doctors fox-news/tech/companies/google fox news fnc/tech fnc Chris Ciaccia b19db8cc-88f1-5f92-8da7-77dba13b021d article

The potential use cases of artificial intelligence benefiting society are vast and may now include predicting who is at risk for a disease that kills nearly 2 million people every year.

Researchers at Google’s DeepMind Health say that have developed an AI that is capable of spotting symptoms of acute kidney injury (AKI) 48 hours before doctors, using inputs such as blood tests, heart rates and blood pressure.

“The research shows that the AI could accurately predict AKI in patients up to 48 hours earlier than it is currently diagnosed,” researchers at Google-owned DeepMind wrote in a blog post. “Importantly, the model correctly predicted 9 out of 10 patients whose condition deteriorated so severely that they then required dialysis. This could provide a window in the future for earlier preventative treatment and avoid the need for more invasive procedures like kidney dialysis.”

GOOGLE DONATES 100,000 HOME MINIS TO HELP PEOPLE WITH PARALYSIS

Researchers added that the model could also be used in the future to “generalize to other major causes of diseases and deterioration such as sepsis, a life-threatening infection.”

The study was published in the journal Nature.

DeepMind analyzed the health records of 700,000 patients, which came from the VA and the Royal Free Hospital in London. More than 100 VA hospitals participated in the study and personal details such as names or social security numbers were not part of the study, so as to keep patients privacy in mind.

Google acquired DeepMind for a reported $500 million in 2014.

According to researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, approximately 2 million die from AKI every year and there is “no effective treatment” that exists, as doctors and researchers “only have a vague notion as to why kidney function decreases so dramatically in many patients with acute illness or injury, or why, despite renal replacement therapy, mortality is so high.”

The International Society of Nephrology indicates that there are about 13.3 million annual cases of AKI, including more than 11 million in emerging countries.

Known as a “silent killer” because of its difficult to diagnose early, AKI can be preventable in some cases, as many as 30 percent, if treated early.

The goal is to ultimately boost patient care by using digital tools in an effort to reduce health care costs and ultimately move “from reactive to preventative models of care,” DeepMind added in the post.

Bo Derek interested in ’10’ sequel but says she’s traded in swimsuits for rash guards

It’s been 40 years since Bo Derek held the role of Jenny Hanley in “10.” And in this era of reboot mania, the actress tells us there is a chance she would return to the film.

“For me to do it, it’s not possible. I can’t run on the beach in slow motion. Oh my God,” she told Fox News. But Derek is interested to have the story continued with a new cast. She told Fox News there’s been talks of a sequel.

“They keep talking about making a two and a three. So when they first started talking about doing a sequel, they asked if I would be the mother. Now they’re asking if I’ll be the grandmother. So maybe someday,” Derek said. “I’ve read some of them and they’re good. They’re funny.”

The actress shared that she looks back on the role with very fond memories. “It was great being around such talented people with Dudley Moore, Julie Andrews, Blake Edwards. I was very young, inexperienced and I was just taken care of the whole way and it was a great experience for me,” she recalled.

Though she’s traded in her bikinis for “rash guards,” Derek always makes time for a beach day.

“I love the sea,” she shared, adding that her exercise routine is all about swimming.

“Swimming burns the most calories of any exercise. So when you see what Michael Phelps could eat for breakfast, that’s for me,” she said, noting that she’s in her own backyard pool or at the local YMCA doing laps three times a week.

Derek credits the hobby, along with drinking a lot of water to keeping her young. She admitted that living largely outside of the limelight also helps her to not care as much about her appearance.

“I am my age and I’m aging and there’s nothing I can do about it. I have other interests in my life so I don’t work that often. I don’t do red carpets that often. I’d probably be much more self-conscious if I did. This way, I could do a film every once in a while and then pretend it didn’t happen and don’t watch it,” she said, with a grin.

When she’s not working, Derek most enjoys spending some quality time with her boyfriend, “Sex And The City” star John Corbett, and the couple’s pups. But don’t expect wedding bells for the pair anytime soon.

“I think after 17 years it’s okay the way it is. I’ve been married before, John hasn’t, but I don’t really see the difference; when you’re committed to somebody it doesn’t matter,” she said. Derek added that her beau is “so much fun, full of joy, very youthful” and that he surprises her every day.

Confusion: Biden offers sympathy for the ‘tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6067771865001_6067770486001-vs Confusion: Biden offers sympathy for the ‘tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan’ Washington Examiner fox-news/person/joe-biden fnc/politics fnc Emily Larsen article 4d96db1e-5ada-55da-8ad3-7879f5733909

Former Vice President Joe Biden misstated the locations of mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, while speaking to donors at a high-dollar fundraiser in San Diego on Sunday night.

Biden, 76, mistakenly referred to the shootings as “the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before,” but later corrected himself, according to a pool report. Biden seemingly confused Houston for El Paso and Michigan for Ohio when speaking to donors about the shootings.

TRUMP DECLARES ‘HATE HAS NO PLACE IN OUR COUNTRY,’ AS DEMS DEMAND RECALL OF CONGRESS

The fundraiser for his presidential campaign took place at the home of businessman Mark Arabo, who is an advocate for persecuted Iraqi Christians. Around 75 attendees at the fundraiser received a three-course meal before the vice president’s remarks, and listened to Biden speak in a marble-tiled living area with two chandeliers as they sat in rows of white chairs.

Sunday was not the first time that Biden mixed up names on the 2020 campaign trail. In May, Biden confused former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who left office in 1990, with then-Prime Minister Theresa May.

“You know what, the president’s words have meaning, no matter who he or she is. They are the face of America,” Biden said at the Sunday fundraiser. He added that he does not hold President Trump personally responsible for the shooting, but noted that he has influence on the country.

Beto exploits tragedy of El Paso shootings for sake of politics

Westlake Legal Group c7727295-AP19194674786335 Beto exploits tragedy of El Paso shootings for sake of politics New York Post Miranda Devine fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/crime/mass-murder fox-news/us/crime fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/beto-orourke fnc/opinion fnc article 7b1a9382-dbd2-5458-916f-4dbdb109d147

The bodies in El Paso were barely cold when Beto O’Rourke started blaming President Trump.

“He is a racist, and he stokes racism in this country . . . We have a president with white nationalist views in the United States today,” the failing Democratic presidential candidate told CNN all Saturday night and Sunday.

He likened Trump’s “anti-immigrant rhetoric” to something out of the Third Reich. “He is an open, avowed racist and is encouraging more racism in this country and this is incredibly dangerous . . .

“Let’s connect the dots here on . . . who is responsible for this right now.”

FORMER FBI RESPONSE TEAM MEMBER EXPLAINS HOW AUTHORITIES WILL PROCESS EL PASO EVIDENCE

CNN’s Jake Tapper cut to the chase: “Do you think President Trump is a white nationalist?”

“Yes, I do,” said Beto.

What disgusting opportunism from a man whose first recorded reaction to the news of Saturday’s massacre in his hometown was a weird smile, quickly suppressed, a man so lacking in empathy, he once wrote of his teenage fantasy of plowing his car into two children crossing the road.

But when it comes to publicity for his ridiculous presidential bid, he’s never had it so good. CNN can’t get enough of him.

It doesn’t get uglier than scoring political points on the deaths of 20 people.

But we can all play the blame game.

For years, leftists have divided the nation with identity politics and defended the fascist ideology of Islamism. Now they try to offload responsibility for the emergence of its mirror image: white identity politics and the fascist ideology of white supremacy.

In the first sentence of his so-called manifesto, a puerile mishmash of grievance, El Paso killer Patrick Crusius, 21, wrote of his “support for the Christchurch shooter and his manifesto.” This refers to the terrorist attack on two New Zealand mosques in March by Australian white supremacist Brenton Tarrant, now glorified as “St. Tarrant” in online forums such as 8chan, where Crusius’ manifesto was posted.

Like Tarrant, Crusius has read the 2011 book “The Great Replacement” by French author Renaud Camus, which claims “elites” are complicit in replacing white Europeans with non-Europeans across the West. This is the driving philosophy of white supremacists.

The problem is that these bad ideas, buttressed by cherry-picked factoids, have been driven out of the public marketplace to dark places underground, where there is no moderating influence.

‘Smiling Cinderella’ wins Women’s British Open

Hinako Shibuno of Japan won the Women’s British Open on Sunday in her major championship debut, holing an 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a one-stroke victory over Lizette Salas.

The 20-year-old Shibuno, a rookie on the Japan LPGA Tour who was making her LPGA Tour debut, birdied five of the final nine holes for a 4-under 68 and an 18-under 270 total at Woburn Golf Club.

Largely unknown before the championship, Shibuno — nicknamed “Smiling Cinderella” — started the round with a two-stroke lead, but lost it with a double bogey on the par-4 third. She birdied Nos. 5 and 7 before a bogey on the eighth.

She birdied Nos. 10-12, all par 4s, added another on the par-5 15th and closed with the winner on the par-4 18th.

Salas finished with a 65.

Jin Young Ko, who was seeking her third major title of the year after winning the Evian Championship last week in France, was two shots back after a bogey-free 66. Morgan Pressel (67) was fourth at 15 under.

PGA TOUR

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — J.T. Poston won the Wyndham Championship for his first PGA Tour title, shooting an 8-under 62 for a one-stroke victory.

Poston tied Henrik Stenson’s 2-year-old tournament record at 22-under 258. He became the first player since Lee Trevino in 1974 to win a 72-hole stroke-play event on tour without any bogeys or worse.

The native North Carolinian began his round three strokes back, took the lead for good with a birdie on the par-5 15th hole, then finished with three straight pars to earn $1,116,000 and 500 FedEx Cup points at the regular-season finale.

Webb Simpson was at 21 under after a 65. Byeong Hun An, who held or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds, three-putted the 18th for a bogey and a 67 to finish two shots back. Trying to force a playoff with a birdie, he nearly holed a 60-footer but had it run well past.

Poston, a former Western Carolina golfer playing a 100-mile drive from his hometown of Hickory, became the third player in 11 years with strong local ties to win at Sedgefield Country Club. He joined 2008 winner Carl Petterson — a Swede who grew up in Greensboro — and 2011 champion Simpson, a Raleigh native who played college golf at Wake Forest.

Blair closed with a 3-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over Brandon Crick. Blair jumped from 31st to 10th in the standings, with the top 25 after the regular-season finale next week earning PGA Tour cards.

The 28-year-old former BYU player finished at 17-under 263 for his first Korn Ferry Tour title.

Crick shot a 68. He went from 155th to 62nd in the season standings.

Maverick McNealy (69) was third at 15 under. He also locked up a tour card, going from 28th to 20th.

China’s Zheng Saisai captures 1st singles title at San Jose

Zheng Saisai kept sending back those big, looping groundstrokes and digging balls from every corner to keep points alive as Aryna Sabalenka became more and more frustrated not to be thriving in her typical power game.

Zheng of China stayed steady and patient to capture her first career singles title, beating Belarusian Sabalenka 6-3, 7-6 (3) in the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic on Sunday.

“It brings out so much confidence,” Zheng said. “I wasn’t winning and this week I beat many seeds. This gives me confidence but still I’m just going to play my tennis.”

Zheng, who is ranked 55th and played one more match than Sabalenka to reach Sunday’s championship, topped three seeded players on the way to her second career final and then another for her first victory at age 25. She was runner-up at Nanchang last year.

With her big topspin shots landing deep and the defensive ability to chase down balls all over the court, Zheng flustered opponents all week with her consistency and level-headed play — and the emotional Sabalenka was no different.

Not that Zheng was paying attention to her opponent’s outbursts, saying she stayed focused on her own game plan.

“The tactic is put the ball deep and whenever I see a space let her run and change if I can flies or high balls because if I give her the same pace, the same ball, she will hit winners on any corner, so I was just trying to mix it up,” Zheng said.

Sabalenka threw her racket after double-faulting on the first match point, slammed her racket to the court following another mistake and also hit it on the net in frustration in an afternoon of unforced errors after the 21-year-old missed on a fourth career title. The second-seeded Sabalenka, who lost in the first round of qualifying here in 2018, rode her powerful first serve to reach to her seventh final and is projected to match her career-high ranking of ninth.

Her power was neutralized by Zheng’s regular topspin on both sides, timely lobs and array of shot-making to keep Sabalenka guessing.

“I couldn’t do anything today with myself. I couldn’t control my emotions. I was screaming some (stuff), I was throwing the rackets,” she said. “… Her game destroyed me because I couldn’t use my power. I wasn’t ready for that.”

Zheng’s victory could propel her to No. 38 — matching her career best — when Monday’s new singles rankings are released.

The two met once previously, with Zheng winning in straight sets on the ITF circuit in 2017. Each woman had played one three-set match this week.

They even wore matching Nike outfits for the final of dark skirts and a gold tank.

For Sabalenka, the loss will provide lessons in how to be more mentally tough. She noted, “I want to be like Serena on the court.”

“I expect better tennis than I played today,” she said. “I just need to be calm on the court and just play my tennis and don’t care about anything else.”

Venus Williams lost her opening match Tuesday night after reaching last year’s quarterfinals here. The 39-year-old, seven-time Grand Slam champion was in the field for the 15th time, this year as a wild-card entry.

In the doubles final, Kveta Peschke of the Czech Republic and American Nicole Melichar defeated Japanese tandem Shuko Aoyama and Ena Shibahara 6-4, 6-4 earlier Sunday.
