Fisher-Price issues warning about Rock ‘N Play Sleeper after 10 infant deaths

Fisher-Price has issued a warning to parents who own the company’s Rock ‘N Play Sleeper, after announcing that 10 babies have died while using it since 2015.

The New York-based company, which makes educational and functional products for infants and toddlers, said in a statement on Friday that children older than 3 months who have learned how to roll over should not use the Rock ‘N Play. The children who died in the sleeper were older than 3 months and, while unrestrained, managed to roll on their stomachs or sides before they died, BuzzFeed News reports.

The deaths first began occuring in 2015, and took place as recently as last month. The Rock ‘N Play is a top seller on Amazon and advertises itself for infant naps and overnight sleep, and comes with a vibration setting to comfort children.

“Fisher-Price warns consumers to stop using the product when infants can roll over, but the reported deaths show that some consumers are still using the product when infants are capable of rolling and without using the three point harness restraint,” Fisher-Price said in a statement.

If the Consumer Product Safety Commission is forced to move forward with a full recall, they will do so, a spokesperson said. The company, however, maintains that the sleeper still meets international safety standards and that the safety instructions warn parents whose children can sit or pull themselves up on their own not to use the product.

Chuck Scothon, a general manager at Fisher-Price, told CNN that any child’s death is an “unimaginable tragedy,” and that the company will continue working to ensure the complete safety of its products.

Nadler claims there is ‘open collusion’ between Trump and Russia despite Mueller findings

Despite Attorney General William Barr saying that Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of wrongdoing regarding the Trump campaign’s contact with Russian operatives, Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., concluded on Sunday that there is still evidence of “open collusion.”

Speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said that the meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Russian associates in 2016 at Trump Tower signified that “there was in plain sight open collusion with the Russians.”

In a four-page letter sent late last month, Barr wrote that Mueller’s investigation did not find evidence that President Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.

The letter to Congress also said Mueller’s report “does not exonerate” the president on obstruction and instead “sets out evidence on both sides of the question.” Barr said there was not sufficient evidence to determine an obstruction of justice offense against Trump.

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE DEMOCRATS AUTHORIZE SUBPOENAS FOR MUELLER REPORT

Nadler called Barr a “very biased person” who serves the interests of the White House and called on the attorney general to release the full, un-redacted version of Mueller’s report to the judiciary committee. He argued that his committee has a solid track record of making sure no sensitive information is leaked to the public.

“The committee has a very good record of protecting information which it decides to protect,” he said.

Nadler also addressed Republican complaints over his calls for the release of the Mueller report, despite vehemently opposing the release of the Starr report in 1998.

Nadler was one of the 17 lawmakers still serving in the lower house of Congress today, who back in 1998 voted against release of Independent Counsel Ken Starr’s report on his investigation into President Bill Clinton.

The Starr Report began in 1994 under Independent Counsel Robert Fiske as a probe into “Whitewater,” a land deal involving President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton when he was governor of Arkansas. But it eventually morphed into questions of obstruction of justice involving Clinton over his relationship with Monica Lewinsky.

The House voted 363-63 to release the Starr Report on Sept. 11, 1998, with all 63 no votes coming from Democrats.

Nadler called the comparison “apples and oranges,” and argued that the Starr report concerned the release of grand jury information to the public rather than to Congress.

Netanyahu says if re-elected he will extend Israeli sovereignty over West Bank

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed on Saturday that he would extend Israeli sovereignty over parts of the West Bank if re-elected.

Israelis head to the polls on Tuesday and in the final stretch of the tight race, Netanyahu is competing for votes with right-wing parties who support annexing part of the West Bank.

Appearing on Israel’s Channel 12 news Saturday, just three days before Israelis vote on whether Netanyahu would get a fifth term, the prime minister said he was contemplating moves that would put a stop to decades of Israel’s policy recognizing that the lands it seized in the 1967 war would be part of a negotiated settlement with the Palestinians. What happens to the land is one of the most contentious issues between Israelis and Palestinians, who argue that the presence of settlements would make a future independent state impossible.

On Saturday, Netanyahu pledged that he would not dismantle a single Jewish settlement and that Israel would retain control of the territory west of the Jordan River, known as the West Bank. More than 600,000 Israelis currently live on the war-won lands, the majority live in the West Bank.

NETANYAHU, ILHAN OMAR SPAR OVER ROLE OF AIPAC’S POLITICAL MONEY: ‘IT’S NOT ABOUT THE BENJAMINS’ 

Netanyahu has promoted Jewish settlement expansion in his four terms as prime minister, but until now, withheld from presenting a detailed vision for the West Bank.

When Netanyahu was asked why he didn’t annex some of the larger settlements during his current term he answered, “The question you are asking is an interesting question, whether we will move to the next stage and the answer is yes.”

Netanyahu added that the next term in office would be “fateful,” according to The Times of Israel.

“We will move to the next stage, the imposing of Israeli sovereignty,” said Netanyahu.

“I will impose sovereignty, but I will not distinguish between settlement blocs and isolated settlements,” he said during Saturday’s interview. “From my perspective, any point of settlement is Israeli, and we have responsibility, as the Israeli government. I will not uproot anyone, and I will not transfer sovereignty to the Palestinians.”

During the interview, Netanyahu depicted the U.S. policy shifts on Jerusalem and the Golan Heights as his achievements, saying that he had managed to persuade President Trump to take these steps.

NETANYAHU CUTS SHORT WASHINGTON TRIP, MOBILIZES MILITARY AFTER GAZA ROCKET ATTACK WOUNDS 7

Most of the international community have long favored a so-called two-state solution. However, U.S. mediation between Israelis and Palestinians stalled after Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital early in his term. As a result, the Palestinians, who seek Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem as their capital, stopped contact with the U.S.

Last month, Trump also recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, an area Israel captured from Syria in 1967.

The U.S. State Department declined to comment on Netanyahu’s statement.

According to The Times of Israel, Netanyahu’s pledge Saturday came a day after he said on Israel’s Channel 13 news that he told President Trump that he would not evacuate “a single person” from any of the settlements. The news comes amid reports that Netanyahu thinks Trump will back him on settlement annexation if the Palestinians reject the much-anticipated Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.

In response to Netanyahu’s statements, David Ha’ivri, a resident of Samaria, which is in the West Bank, told Fox News, “In my opinion, these statements were long overdue. Israel liberated these areas from Jordan 52 years ago in the 1967 Six Day War. Since then the residents of this region have lived in a state of political limbo, not knowing what the near future will bring and under which flag we would live.”

In a statement, Saeb Erekat, a veteran Palestinian negotiator, said, “Israel will continue to brazenly violate international law for as long as the international community will continue to reward Israel with impunity, particularly with the Trump administration’s support and endorsement of Israel’s violation of the national and human rights of the people of Palestine.”

In its final days, Israel’s prime minister race appears too close to call, as Netanyahu faces a strong challenge from a popular former army chief, Benny Gantz.

American tourist, driver abducted in Uganda released by captors, officials say

Westlake Legal Group Queen_Elizabeth_National_Park_iStock American tourist, driver abducted in Uganda released by captors, officials say Katherine Lam fox-news/world/world-regions/africa fox news fnc/world fnc edaac7d9-682c-5d55-b218-b9749890194c article

American tourist Kimberly Sue Endicott and her safari guide were freed days after a group of men kidnapped them at gunpoint in Uganda’s Queen Elizabeth National Park and demanded a ransom for their safe release, officials said Sunday.

Endicott and the driver, Jean-Paul Mirenge Remezo, were freed from their captors and are in “good heath,” Uganda Police Force said on Twitter Sunday. The kidnappers had used Endicott’s phone to demand a $500,000 ransom for the safe return of the duo, but it’s unclear if the money was paid. Details about Endicott and Remezo’s release were not immediately available.

“Police & its sister security agencies have today rescued Ms.Kimberley Sue, an American tourist together with her guide who were kidnapped while on an evening game drive at Queen Elizabeth National park.The duo are in good health & in the safe hands of the joint security team,” Uganda Police Force said in a statement.

Uganda Wildlife also confirmed both people were in “safe hands” and thanked security agencies who led the mission to their rescue.

“The rescue of kidnapped tourist Kimberly Sue and driver guide Jean Paul is complete. Both captives back in safe hands. We thank our security agencies who led the mission. This was a one off and isolated incident. Our national parks have been and remain safe to visit,” Uganda Wildlife Authority said.

SUSPECTED RHINO POACHER TRAMPLED BY ELEPHANT, EATEN BY LIONS, SOUTH AFRICA PARK OFFICIALS SAY

Endicott — an aesthetician from Costa Mesa, Calif. — Remezo and two other tourists were in a car between 6 and 7 p.m. Tuesday when four men stopped them and held them at gunpoint. The men took Endicott and Remezo and left the two tourists, who then contacted the camp manager and taken to safety, Uganda Police Force said in a prior statement.

The State Department said Friday that the safety and security of U.S. citizens abroad is its highest priority.

“Whenever a U.S. citizen is taken captive abroad, we work tirelessly – in partnership with local authorities – to secure their release and get them home safely,” the statement said.

US PULLS FORCES FROM LIBYA DUE TO ‘SECURITY CONDITIONS’ AMID FIGHTING NEAR CAPITAL

On Tuesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. government would not pay ransom because it would lead to more kidnappings.

“Please remember that any payment to a terrorist or a terrorist regime gives money so that they can seize more of our people,” Pompeo said at an event unrelated to the Tuesday kidnappings. “Even a small payment to a group in, say, Africa can facilitate the killing or seizure of tens or even hundreds of others, including Americans or foreign nationals in that region.”

US PULLS FORCES FROM LIBYA DUE TO ‘SECURITY CONDITIONS’ AMID FIGHTING NEAR CAPITAL

Endicott’s cousin, Rich Endicott, urged U.S. officials to intervene and rescue the California native by doing whatever it takes, including sending the Navy SEALS to Uganda.

“I heard our Secretary of State get on there and say we don’t pay ransom. OK, fine,” Endicott told the Associated Press. “Then get the Navy SEALS, get them on a plane and go save her. Don’t pay ransom, I’m good with that. But he didn’t say any of those things, and maybe they’re doing those things, but who knows.”

Endicott, who is in her 50s, had booked the trip to Uganda because it was her dream to see gorillas on a safari in Africa, her friend Pam Lopez, told the Los Angeles Times.

“I know she was planning this trip for a while, because it’s something that she’s always wanted to do,” Lopez said. “This was always a big trip she wanted to take.”

“I’m sure she felt like she was safe,” she added. “I just can’t even imagine what’s happening right now to her.”

Burger King slammed on social media over ad featuring chopsticks: ‘It’s racist’

Burger King is being called out for an advertisement for its new chicken sandwich, the Vietnamese Sweet Chili Tendercrisp.

The ad, which aired in New Zealand, features several fast food customers attempting – and failing – to eat the chicken sandwich using giant chopsticks.

“Take your taste buds all the way to Ho Chi Minh City with our Vietnamese Sweet Chili Tendercrisp, part of our Tastes of the World range. Available for a limited time only,” a caption for the ad read on Instagram.

Mario Mo, a Korean New Zealander, posted a video of the ad to her Twitter slamming the brand’s use of chopsticks with a sarcastic “chopsticks r hilarious right omg etc.”

Soon after Mo posted the video, it went viral pulling in over 2 million views as of Sunday afternoon, and hundreds of comments from Twitter users expressing their own outrage at the company’s approval of the ad.

Mo told HuffPost she decided to post the video because she was shocked to see it in the first place.

“Because I couldn’t believe such blatantly ignorant ads are still happening in 2019, it honestly took me a second to work out what the heck I was looking at,” Mo told HuffPost in a message.

“[People of color] are constantly having to deal with microaggressions as well as outright hatred and it just never ends,” she added.

Burger King did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This is not the first time brands have been called out for being culturally insensitive when using chopsticks in marketing campaigns.

In November, Dolce & Gabbana apologized after receiving backlash for a series of “racist” ads that used an Asian model using chopsticks to eat pizza and other Italian foods.

In 2017, the New York Times came under fire for its inappropriate positioning of chopsticks in a photograph announcing the yet-to-be opened “Asian-inspired” steak house, Jade Sixty.

Twitter pointed out the chopsticks were placed in an upright manner — a chopsticks etiquette faux pas as, in Japanese culture, upright chopsticks indicate death or suggest a funeral offering.

The New York Times replaced the photo to one without chopsticks.

Reebok slams reports Beyoncé walked out on meeting over alleged lack of diversity

Beyoncé partnered with Adidas, but it doesn’t mean she has beef with Reebok.

After reports surfaced that Beyoncé walked out of a meeting with Reebok over a supposed lack of diversity, the sneaker brand spoked out and vehemently denied the allegations.

While it’s not clear where the Reebok rumors originated, the tall tale was perpetuated on ESPN‘s “The Jump.”

BEYONCE DEDICATES GLAAD AWARD TO LATE UNCLE WHO DIED FROM AIDS

ESPN reporter Nick DePaula said on the show that diversity was incredible important to Queen Bey, quipping, “I had heard a great story about how throughout this process over the last year or two, she’d discussed with Under Armour, with Reebok as well, Jordan at one point was interested in being partnered with her.”

FIVE HOUSE DEMOCRATS TOOK $60,000 TRIP TO SOUTH AFRICA FOR BEYONCE CONCERT

He continued, “She had a meeting at Reebok and they had a whole presentation of everything, potential products, how this could all look, and she kind of took a step back and said, ‘Is the team that would be working on my product?’ And somebody said yes, and she said, ‘Nobody in this room reflects my background, my skin color and where I’m from and what I want to do.’ And she kind of took a step back and left, and they did not come to terms.”

Reebok slammed the report this weekend.

“The report that Beyoncé walked out of a meeting with Reebok due to lack of diversity is categorically false,” the athletic brand told TMZ in a statement. “Our discussions with Beyoncé and her team continued for several months after our initial meeting. We are disappointed that false information is being reported as fact.”

Last week, it was revealed that the 37-year-old Grammy winner will relaunch her Ivy Park line with Adidas, saying in a statement, “This is the partnership of a lifetime for me.

US pulls forces from Libya due to ‘security conditions’ amid fighting near capital

Increased fighting in Libya has forced the U.S. to temporarily relocate a number of its troops from the country as conditions deteriorate, officials said Sunday.

U.S. Africa Command said in a news release that a contingent of U.S. forces supporting U.S. Africa Command has pulled out due to “security conditions on the ground.”

“The security realities on the ground in Libya are growing increasingly complex and unpredictable,” said U.S. Marine Corps Gen. Thomas Waldhauser, the head of U.S. Africa Command. “Even with an adjustment of the force, we will continue to remain agile in support of existing U.S. strategy.”

RIVAL LIBYAN FORCES SAY THEY HAVE CAPTURED TRIPOLI AIRPORT

Waldhauser did not provide details on the number of U.S. troops that have been withdrawn or on how many remain inside the country. Photos and videos posted to Twitter appear to show some of the U.S. troops evacuating near Tripoli.

Officials have told Fox News that hundreds of American troops had been in Libya in recent years helping the U.N.-backed government combat Islamic State and Al Qaeda militants.

Troops also protect diplomatic facilities in the wake of the deadly 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, that killed 4 Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

A renegade Libyan general has started an assault on the capital of Tripoli in recent days, targeting the airport located outside the city.

Fighting was underway Sunday at the international airport about 15 miles from central Tripoli, after the Libyan National Army, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Hifter, claimed to have seized the area. The airport was destroyed in a previous bout of militia fighting in 2014. Hifter said his forces had launched airstrikes targeting rival militias on the outskirts of Tripoli.

Libya has been gripped by unrest since the 2011 uprising that overthrew and killed long-ruling dictator Muammar Qaddafi, and in recent years has been governed by rival authorities in the east and in Tripoli, in the west, each backed by various armed groups.

GERMAN AID GROUP SAYS 64 MIGRANTS RESCUED AT SEA OFF LIBYA

The rival militias, which are affiliated with a U.N.-backed government in Tripoli, said they had also carried out airstrikes that slowed Hifter’s advance. At least 23 people, including civilians, have been killed on both sides since Thursday.

The Interior Ministry of the Tripoli-based government said in a statement to the Associated Press that at least 9 people, including a physician, were killed. It said at least 55 fighters and a civilian were wounded.

Ahmed al-Mesmari, a spokesman for Hifter’s forces, said Saturday that 14 troops had been killed since the offensive began.

The fighting has displaced hundreds of people, the U.N. migration agency said. The U.N. mission to Libya has called for a two-hour cease-fire on Sunday in parts of Tripoli to evacuate civilians and wounded people.

The LNA is supported by Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, France and Russia. It answers to the authorities based in eastern Libya, who are at odds with the U.N.-backed government.

“I don’t think she liked to be challenged,” Setoodeh told Jenny McCarthy of Goldberg. “I think she had the most problems with Rosie O’Donnell because Rosie wanted to challenge her and wanted to change the show. Rosie felt like Whoopi was kind of checked out.”

When the women were together, Setoodeh said, “It was World War III. It was the worst ‘The View’ had ever been when the two of them were on. They were fighting every single day. It got so bad that Rosie would be backstage complaining to guests about how mean Whoopi was to her.”

Setoodeh also claimed that O’Donnell told him her own doctor told her she was having a “health crisis” on the show when he saw her neck artery throbbing during an argument with Goldberg. O’Donnell claimed to have walked off the set into the audience during a commercial break to take a Xanax because Goldberg cut her off and made her upset.

O’Donnell reportedly was especially furious that Goldberg wouldn’t let the panel speak Bill Cosby on the show because he was a friend of Goldberg’s and “for a long time didn’t believe the women who came forward.” Both O’Donnell and McCarthy alleged that Goldberg didn’t let them debate or argue and would just cut to a commercial during a disagreement.

Setoodeh said that O’Donnell, who’d hosted her own hit daytime talk show previously, “was used to being in charge. She was used to calling all the shots, and ‘The View’ wasn’t her show. It was Barbara Walters’ show, and when she came back the second time, Whoopi was really in charge because she was the moderator. And she sort of made life Hell for everyone because she was so frustrated all the time because things weren’t going her way.”

Still, Setoodeh says of O’Donnell, her motives weren’t malicious: She was a perfectionist and wanted to make the show better, while the rest of the panel reportedly didn’t want to rock the boat.

“She was very honest about it. She didn’t think that they were doing a good enough job,” Setoodeh said, admitting that she may have had “unrealistic expectations … She had a lot of trouble letting other people do things.”

Barbara Bush thought Nancy Reagan kicked she and George H.W. Bush when they were down

Former first ladies Barbara Bush and Nancy Reagan‘s feud came to a head when Bill Clinton was inaugurated in 1993.

Author Susan Page says in her new book “The Matriarch” that Bush and Reagan’s acrimony reached a fever pitch after Reagan called into ABC News’ live television coverage of Clinton’s inauguration to slam reports of how she treated the Bush family.

“The Bushes were aghast,” Page wrote (via People). “At the low point of their political lives, Nancy Reagan had made one more petty dig.”

GEORGE H.W. BUSH AND BARBARA BUSH THROUGH THE YEARS

Reagan had claimed she tried calling Barbara previously but could not reach her. After Reagan’s comments went public, Barbara “reluctantly” accepted a call from the fellow former first lady.

“She [Mrs. Reagan] started out by saying that she knew that this was a hard time with packing boxes and all … but … and here I interrupted her and said that all was well,” Barbara recalled to Page. “I told her that our friends and family had given us such a good welcome home and that they had pretty much unpacked for us, [but] that the thing that made it tough was having her say all those ugly things about me on the air.”

BARBARA BUSH DIDN’T CONSIDER HERSELF A REPUBLICAN WHEN SHE DIED

Bush added, “She said that she was just trying to explain. I asked her not to explain about me anymore … she had hurt me badly and I just could not understand it.”

According to a New York Times report at the time, Reagan “had been desperately trying to call Barbara Walters, an old friend, to privately correct something Ms. Walters had said on the air. … But somehow, Mrs. Reagan was connected to Peter Jennings on the air … While Mr. Jennings and David Brinkley sat by, bemused, Mrs. Reagan unloaded on both her successors.”

REMEMBERING BARBARA BUSH

Reagan also claimed that the Bushes had never invited her or former president Ronald to a state dinner, even though Barbara clarified that she’d invited the couple just 10 days earlier to present the Medal of Freedom to Ronald. “We did have your wonderful husband to the White House,” Barbara recalled telling Reagan, “and don’t you ever call me again!”

Of course, if Barbara and George H.W. Bush didn’t invite the Reagans over, it may have simply been returning the favor: Nancy notoriously left the Bushes out of their own celebrations, even while they served in office together.

When Nancy died in 2016, Barbara said in a statement, “Nancy Reagan was totally devoted to President Reagan, and we take comfort that they will be reunited once more.” However, in her diary ahead of George H.W. Bush’s inauguration, Page claims that Barbara wrote, “I will not treat her [incoming Second Lady Marilyn Quayle] as Nancy Reagan has treated me.”

Barbara passed away in April 2018. When she and George H.W. Bush were asked why the Reagans didn’t like them, George replied simply, “I don’t know.”
