Sepp Blatter says he has not resigned as Fifa president.


The 79-year-old Swiss was thought to have ended his 17-year reign on 2 June amid claims of corruption in world football's governing body.
But, according to Swiss newspaper Blick,  Blatter told a party at a Fifa museum: "I did not resign. I put myself and my office in the hands of the Fifa congress."
Blatter is thought to be considering standing for re-election as president.
Two criminalINVESTIGATIONS into alleged Fifa corruption began in the week that Blatter was elected for a fifth term in charge.
Four days after being voted president, Blatter - who is reportedly under investigation in the United States - said: "While I have a mandate from the membership of Fifa, I do not feel that I have a mandate from the entire world of football."Therefore, I have decided to lay down my mandate at an extraordinary elective congress. I will continue to exercise my functions as Fifa president until that election."
However Blatter did not use the words 'resign' or 'resignation'.
Meanwhile, Blatter may not attend the final of the Women's World Cup in Canada because of the twinINVESTIGATIONS into Fifa by American and Swiss authorities.
He wouldNORMALLY present the trophy to the winning team, but Fifa will not confirm whether Blatter or secretary general Jerome Valcke will attend.

Chris Brown who celebrated his daughter's birthday on Sunday continued

chris brown the best dad, Chris Brown who celebrated his daughter's birthday on Sunday continued the celebration on Monday at Disneyland. He shared photos of the fun time on his page and also shared a video of her passed out on his shoulders after apparently having a great time at Disneyland

Hip hop mogul P Diddy has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon in Los Angeles.

The alleged incident occurred on the University of California campus on Monday afternoon, where his son is on the football team, police said.

The weapon in question was a kettlebell, which is used for weight training.

Jail records show Diddy - whose real name is Sean Combs - was released on bail on Monday evening.

The bail posted was $160,000 (£101,000).

Officials did not identify the victim of the assault or say what led to the incident.

In a statement, campus police said no-one was seriously injured.
'Unfortunate incident'

Combs' son Justin Combs had been working out on the campus. He has played just a handful of games for the UCLA football team since joining three years ago.

Snoop Dogg's son Cordell Broadus also plays on the same team.

Football coach Jim Mora thanked his staff for their professionalism in handling the situation.

"This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved,'' Mora said in the statement from campus police.

"While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time."

Combs' representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

It is not the first time Combs has found himself in trouble with the authorities over his conduct.

In 1999, he was arrested for his involvement in the beating of former Interscope executive Steve Stoute in New York.

Combs apologised, the charges were reduced, and he was ordered to attend an anger management class.

The rap mogul topped a Forbes list of the five wealthiest hip-hop artists last year.

Diddy led with an estimated fortune of $700 million (£416m), an increase of $120 million (£71m) over his net worth in 2013.

That increase was largely down to his new, music-focused, multi-platform channel - Revolt TV - of which he is the majority owner.

It was the second year running the rapper topped the rich list.

ames Horner, the Hollywood composer who wrote the score for the Oscar-winning film hit Titanic, has died in a California plane crash aged 61.

A trained pilot, he is reported to have been alone aboard a small private plane which crashed north of Santa Barbara on Monday morning.

The two-time Oscar winner worked on three James Cameron films, as well as A Beautiful Mind, Troy and Apollo 13.

He won one Oscar for the Titanic film score and another for its theme song.
'Unbelievable talent'

The musican shared his second Oscar with lyricist Will Jennings for best original song, My Heart Will Go On, sung by Celine Dion.

Horner was nominated for a further eight Oscars, for scores and songs for the films Avatar, House of Sand and Fog, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Braveheart, Field of Dreams, An American Tail and Aliens.

The plane crash left an impact crater and sparked a brush fire that had to be put out by firefighters, local fire authorities said.

Horner's personal assistant, Sylvia Patrycja, wrote on Facebook on Monday: "We have lost an amazing person with a huge heart, and unbelievable talent. He died doing what he loved. Thank you for all your support and love and see you down the road."

Actor and director Ron Howard tweeted: "Brilliant Composer James Horner, friend & collaborator on 7 movies has tragically died in a plane crash. My heart aches for his loved ones."

Russell Crowe, who starred in Howard's Oscar-winning film A Beautiful Mind, added: "My sincere condolences to the family, loved ones and friends of James Horner."

American composer Steve Jablonsky, writer of the music for the Transformers movie series, tweeted about the influence the composer had on him, saying: "James Horner, thank you for inspiring a young me to pursue a career in film music. Thank you for your music. Rest in peace."

Burkina Faso striker Bertrand Traore is set to feature in Chelsea's first-team squad after being granted a work permit.

The 19-year-old signed for the Blues in January 2014 but, not qualifying for a permit, has since been on loan at Vitesse Arnhem in the Netherlands.

The Blues reapplied this summer and succeeded under the Football Association's new points-based system.

Traore is expected to be part of Chelsea's tour to the United States.

The change to work permit regulations has been introduced in a bid to limit the number of non-EU players but Traore, who did not qualify automatically, has been given permission to play in England by the FA. Work permit changes - key points

Previously, players needed to have played at least 75% of their country's internationals over the previous two years. That has now changed and determined according to ranking. Players must play at least 30% of matches in the last two years if their country is in the top 10, 45% if ranked between 11th and 20th, 60% between 21st and 30th and 75% if between 31st and 50th.

Under the old system, players had to have played for a country in the top 70 when rankings are averaged over two years. That has been changed to the top 50.

All players were previously measured over the last two years. The new regulations allow leeway for players aged 21 or under to only fulfil the criteria for the previous 12 months.

The FA estimates that 33% of the players who gained entry under the old system would not have been granted a work visa under the new rules. That means that over the last five years there would have been 42 fewer non-European players playing in the Premier and Football Leagues.

Read more on the work permit changes on the FA website.


He scored 19 goals for Vitesse in the Eredivisie last season, and has played in three Africa Cup of Nations campaigns for Burkina Faso, having made his debut aged 15.

Chelsea will play against New York Red Bulls, Paris St-Germain and Barcelona when they travel to the United States in pre season.

Rwanda's intelligence chief Karenzi Karake, who is wanted in Spain for war crimes, has been arrested in London.

The 54-year-old was remanded in custody until Thursday after appearing before Westminster Magistrates' Court.

He is accused of ordering massacres while head of military intelligence in the wake of the 1994 Rwanda genocide.

He is also accused of ordering the killing of three Spanish nationals working for Medicos del Mundo.
'Contested vigorously'

The Rwandan government is said to be puzzled by the timing of Gen Karake's arrest, as he had travelled to the UK several times since the indictment was issued.

Williams Nkurunziza, Rwanda's High Commissioner to the UK, called the arrest "an insult".

"We take strong exception to the suggestion that he's being arrested on war crimes," he told the BBC World Service.

"Any suggestion that any of our 40 leaders are guilty of crimes against humanity is an insult to our collective conscience."

Louise Mushikiwabo, Rwanda's foreign minister called the arrest "an outrage".

Gen Karake is director general of Rwanda's National Intelligence and Security Services and a member of Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF).

In 2008, a Spanish judge indicted him for alleged war crimes along with 39 other current or former high-ranking Rwandan military officials for events that happened in the wake of the Rwandan genocide.

An estimated 800,000 people were killed between April and June 1994 by ethnic Hutu extremists.

Most of the dead were members of the minority Tutsi community and politically moderate Hutus.

The killings ended when the RPF, a Tutsi-led rebel movement that entered Rwanda from Uganda, seized control of the country.

Human Rights Watch reported that in their drive for military victory and to control the population, the RPF killed thousands, including government troops, members of the militia and civilians in numerous executions and massacres.

Lamar Odom's friend Bobby Heyward dies of drug overdose days after Jamie Sangouthai's died of the same thing

Less than a week after the death of Jamie Sangouthai, Lamar Odom has lost a second close friend to a drug overdose.
Bobby Heyward, a producer and writer, died at age 30 on Saturday, June 20.  The L.A. County Coroners office confirms that Heyward passed away, but did not confirm an official cause of death.
What makes the situation even more heartbreaking is the fact that Heyward's final Instagram post was a tribute to Sangouthai.
"#RIP To my big brother Jamie who always brought light into any room he walked into and laughter as well at all times J you will always be missed. Family for life. #BandOfBrothers #tbt," 

A source tells Us that Odom is "beside himself" as he was still close with Heyward prior to his death. Heyward was also close with Odom's ex-wife Khloe Kardashian, who reached out to her ex in the wake of his friend's death

Kanye West I Listen to Me in the Car!

We got Kim's hubby arriving at LAX Friday, and he told our photog about his next album, which he was listening to on the way to the airport.
Kanye was super friendly ... which is becoming SOP.
He made it clear ... his album is great.  Fact is ... most people who say that are just blowing smoke.  In Kanye's case, he has a track record of awesome records, so he's probably right.


Embarrassing Photos You Won’t Believe Actually Happen

Toilet Paper–  Check this out, you are dressed to the nines. High heels, tight dress, and looking find. You are out with a bunch of friends perhaps, and you go to the powder room to freshen up, but you leave with a little souvenir. Toilet paper trailing down your leg. You don’t look so hot anymore, do you?

Lewis Hamilton: I thought I'd lost pole position with spin

Lewis Hamilton said he was concerned he had lost pole position following his spin in the final seconds of Austrian Grand Prix qualifying.
The world champion ended up holding on to pole after his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg also spun on his last lap.
Afterwards, I thought 'I probably lost it there'," said the Briton.
Hamilton, who took his seventh pole in eight races this year, said he believed Mercedes would face a close fight with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel in the race.
Vettel qualified third and the Ferrari was actually quicker than the Mercedes when the two teams did race-simulation runs on heavy fuel loads in Friday practice.
"Ferrari are close," added Hamilton. "They have good race pace and naturally Nico is going to be a threat, as always."

Def Leppard guitarist pulls out of tour after cancer returns

Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell is pulling out of the rock band's tour after his cancer returned.
Campbell, 52, announced two years ago that he was getting chemotherapy for Hodgkin lymphoma, which affects the lymphatic system.
He later said he was in remission.
"I'm saddened by the fact that my cancer has returned," he said in a statement Saturday. "However, I'm beyond consolation that its return will prevent me from being able to do my job for a while."
Campbell joined Def Leppard in 1992. Before that, he was in a series of other bands, including Whitesnake and Shadow King.
The band is on the North American leg of its tour, and is scheduled to perform Tuesday in Tampa, Florida.

Thousands of people have gathered at Stonehenge to mark this year's summer solstice.

Police said 23,000 attended the neolithic site in Wiltshire to watch the sun rise at 04:52 BST, while others gathered at the nearby Avebury stone circle.
The figure was down on the estimated 36,000 who attended last year and the 30,000 expected this year.
Wiltshire Police said the celebrations were "positive and peaceful".
The summer solstice usually occurs on 21 June, but can occur on 20 and 22 June.
Police said arrests were lower than in previous years, with nine people being held for drugs offences at Stonehenge and a handful being cautioned for possession of Class A drugs, while no arrests were made at Avebury.
Next year's summer solstice will occur on 20 June, but the next 22 June solstice will not occur until 2203.

Man kills 3 driving into crowd in Austria -- on purpose, authorities say

Three people have died and dozens more are injured after a man drove into a crowd -- on purpose, the local government says -- Saturday in the Austrian city of Graz.
The 26-year-old male driver intentionally used his vehicle as a weapon, the Graz City Council said in a statement.
Roman Sommershsacher, a spokesman for the Austrian city's government, said the man drove through Graz's inner city -- including into a place where cars are not normally allowed -- trying to hit people.
One of the three fatalities is a child. At least 34 more people suffered injuries, Sommershsacher said, including ten seriously and one in critical condition.
The driver -- described as an Austrian citizen with Serbian roots -- has been arrested, officials said at a Saturday afternoon press conference.
The officials added that they don't know the man's motive but do not believe it has anything to do with terrorism.
Photos from the scene showed a mangled bike and what appeared to be a body draped by a white sheet.

Rihanna and chris brown and real madrid striker beau Karim Benzema arrive at nightclub


Rihanna was seen making a rather eye-catching appearance at Hooray Henry's nightclub in West Hollywood with rumoured beau Karim Benzema.
Turning heads as she entered the venue, the American songstress was dressed to impress in a chic pinstriped blazer and tiny matching shorts, which drew heaps of attention to her ample cleavage and slender legs.
It seemed like just another night at Hooray Henry's in West Hollywood Saturday at 12:52 AM when Rihanna showed up.  Then -- 3 minutes later -- Chris Brown shows up and walks inside.  There's no sign of Rihanna's new BF, soccer star Karim Benzema.
Fast forward to 2:01 AM.  Chris leaves the club.  Exactly 1 minute later, Rihanna makes her exit.  And then, at 2:04 AM, Karim surfaces and leaves the club with Rihanna.

Wow ; Rihanna surpasses Beyonce

Rihanna reigns atop Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated June 27) for the 23rd time with "Bitch Better Have My Money" (2-1). With her latest leader, she eclipses Beyonce (22 No. 1s), who last topped the chart in February with "7/11." 
Rihanna now trails only Madonna (45) for the most No. 1s in the chart's nearly 39-year history, dating to its inception as a national survey in 1976.

The BBC has denied it invited Jeremy Clarkson back as host of Top Gear, months after he was axed from the job.

Clarkson told the Sun, for whom he writes a regular column, that an unnamed BBC executive had "asked if I'd come back to Top Gear" last week.
But Clarkson said he refused: "It would have been impossible to make the show I'd want to make," he said.
The BBC has named Chris Evans as the new host. "We haven't offered another Top Gear contract," a spokesman said.
"The BBC had placed on record its thanks to Jeremy for his broadcasting on the programme and wish him well for the future."
Clarkson, who was sacked for punching a Top Gear producer in March, told the Sun that returning to the Top Gear role "was never an option".

Briton 'second in command' during Kenya al-Shabab raid

A British man killed while fighting with Islamist militant group al-Shabab in Kenya was second in command of his unit at the time, the BBC has learned.
Thomas Evans, 25, from Buckinghamshire, died in the thwarted attack on a military base on 14 June.
Police now say he was also the group's cameraman, and captured images of the incident up until his death.
Kenyan security forces killed 11 gunmen and two soldiers died after the raid in Lamu County, near the Somali border.

High-profile attacks

Christipo Mutali, from the Kenyan police, says he witnessed the attack in which the 25-year-old died.
"He was the one carrying the video during the attack. And he was commanding 'let's move on, we are winning men, let's go, come in, let us shoot, we are winning.
"There were two lines. He was the one leading the front line."
Al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda affiliate based in Somalia, has been behind a series of high-profile attacks including the Westgate shopping centre siege in Nairobi in 2013, and a violent assault on a university earlier this year in which nearly 150 people were killed.
BBC News correspondent Karen Allen said police had confirmed Evans, a Muslim convert who changed his name to Abdul Hakim, was second in command on the day of the latest raid.
He can apparently be heard in a recording shouting orders over a radio to younger al-Shabab fighters, our correspondent added.

what a lost 10-year-old dies after riding roller coaster at Six Flags park in California

A 10-year-old who lost consciousness on a Six Flags roller coaster in Southern California has died.
Jasmine Martinez was airlifted to the hospital Friday when she was found unconscious but still breathing after riding the Revolution roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. She was pronounced dead on Saturday. On Tuesday the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office said Martinez died from natural causes and not from an accident on the ride.

Birth rates among U.S. women rises for first time in seven years

The rate of births among women ages 15 to 44 ticked up 1% from 2013 to 2014. That's the first increase since 2007, the beginning of the recession, according to a study released Wednesday by the National Center for Health Statistics.
The 3.98 million total births in 2014 was most since 2010.
Carl Haub, a senior demographer for the Population Reference Bureau, said he wasn't surprised by the federal findings. Though the increase in fertility rate is small, he said, it could be indicative of a shifting trend. Haub said this demographic change aligns with an improving economy.
"The decline of the birth rate over the past few years can be attributed to the recession," Haub told USA TODAY.
The economic recession also led to social problems, including an increase in child abuse and suicide. A 2010 study found shaken baby syndrome, a deadly form of child abuse, rose as a result of the recession.
"The recession is ending – we think it's ending – for some people, so we might attribute a rise in the birth rate" to the economy, Haub said.
Laura Lindberg, principal research scientist at the Guttmacher Institute, said during the economic recession, women were less well-off.
"I think as people feel their paycheck is more stable, it feels like a safe environment to have a child in," Lindberg said.
The environment continues to look rosy. Job growth has been steadily increasing, including 223,000 jobs gained in April 2015 – the most recent statistic from the Department of Labor. And consumer spending on retail items grew in May, increasing 1.2%, according to theDepartment of Commerce last week.
Brady Hamilton, an author of the study, warned that researchers did not collect data on why people made certain decisions when considering having a child, adding that these findings are likely due to a "cacophony of factors." The data came from all recorded birth certificates in the U.S.
Lindberg said the change in the general fertility rate likely won't emulate the baby boom in the 1950s, and should be characterized more as "a short window of a patch-up period" from the recession.
The new study also found teen birth rates hit a historic low, with 24.2 births per 1,000 women – a 9% drop from 2013's 26.2 births per 1,000 women aged 15 to 19.
The teen fertility rate has been on the decline for several years, falling more than 7% each year since 2007. The highest number of teen births ever was 644,708 in 1970. Now, the number sits at 249,067 births for 2014, which Hamilton called "amazing."
Lindberg said the lower fertility rate could be attributed to better access of information. People now have many more options to become educated on pregnancy prevention, including school programs, youth programs, parents and the Internet.
