A Russian nurse is under investigation for being out of uniform while passing medications to patients in an all-male coronavirus hospital ward.

According to media reports, the nurse, who is in her 20s, is under investigation for making rounds while wearing only her underwear and a transparent latex gown in an all-male coronavirus ward at Tula Regional Clinical Hospital.

An amused patient took a photo of the nurse's unusual protective garb and posted it on social media where it went viral this week.

The patient said there was no objection to the nurse's outfit in the hospital ward. But he admitted to "some embarrassment."

Hospital officials disciplined the nurse for wearing "lingerie" around the male patients. Additionally, she was written up for "non-compliance with the requirements for medical clothing."

The nurse, who has not been identified, explained she wore the odd PPE outfit because she was "too hot" while wearing her nurse's uniform under the latex gown.

Despite the reaction from her male patients, she claimed she didn't realize the latex gown was so revealing. She said she chose to wear a "swimming suit" under the transparent gown rather than nothing at all.

Russia has reported over 300,000 Covid-19 cases and 2,972 deaths.

The 28-year-old Maryland woman who claims to be Jay-Z''s illegitimate firstborn daughter is seen posing in throwback photos with her real father over the years.

La'Teasha Macer claims she confirmed a DNA match to Jay-Z's grandmother through a DNA submission to Ancestry.com. Which only proves she might be related to someone on Jay-Z's grandmother's side -- not necessarily to Jay-Z himself.

Macer claims the 51-year-old rap mogul knocked up her mother during the peak of his rap career when he would have been around 23 years old.

Internet sleuths uncovered photos of Macer posing with her real father, Bobby, whose name is on her birth certificate. The pair bear a strong resemblance to each other and she looks more like him than Jay-Z.

Macer is luckier than most who grew up not knowing their biological fathers. It seems she had a loving father at every crucial stage of her life.

Macer has been making the rounds of YouTube channels, staking her claim to Jay-Z's fortune.

But her mother never pursued child support or paternity while she was young. It's highly unusual for a Black woman to leave money on the table in this day and age.

Macer herself apparently didn't retain an attorney to secure her claim to Jay-Z's estate before she turned 18.

The rapper has vigorously denied Macer's claims to his inner circle, particularly to his long-suffering wife, Beyonce Giselle Knowles, and his business associates who don't want to be entangled in a potential scandal.

Friends urge the promiscuous rapper to take a paternity test to prevent La'Teasha from making a career out of being "Jay-Z's first daughter."

Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, married Beyonce in 2008. They share three minor children. Jay-Z reportedly has two adult sons from previous sexual liaisons.

Malone managed to evade criminal charges because he was a college basketball star. His out-of-wedlock son, Demetress Bell, went on to play in the NFL, according to the report.

Malone's son other son, KJ, defended him in a video, saying his father's statutory rape allegation should not tarnish his legacy.

"I'm probably going to get a lot of backfire for this. My mom is probably going to get mad at me. But at the end of the day I'm doing this for my family. Just standing up for my dad. He made a mistake, but at the end of the day, he's still a great dad. He still takes care of Demetress. Demetress is my brother, I love him to death."

Malone's wife reposted KJ's video:

"@kjmalone I am so damn proud of you for speaking up and just know LOVE conquers all and that's what we have as a family. As a mama I will always look out for my family. Instead of looking at people’s failures let's celebrate their achievements and their loving hearts. I pray for all those people that are in a dark place that the only thing they know is to be ugly. I pray God wraps their arms around them and hope they feel the love that you have given me. This to shall pass. Corinthians 13. Love you Jr and stay strong."

The U.S. Coast Guard has called off the search for former WWE wrestling star Shad Gaspard who apparently drowned when a riptide pulled him under while swimming with his 10-year-old son off the coast of Venice Beach.

Gaspard, 39, was swimming with his son when a strong current pulled them both under water. His son was rescued by a lifeguard, but the 6-foot-7 in. wrestling star was swept under by a riptide and never seen again.

Gaspard's distraught wife, Siliana Gaspard, watched the rescue effort from the shore. Mother and son remained on the beach for hours afterwards, refusing to leave as the search continued.

"We had one of our lifeguards go out to make a double rescue of a father and a son," Kenichi Haskett, of Los Angeles County Fire Dept Lifeguard Division, told DailyMail.com exclusively.

"The father unfortunately got pushed down by a wave as they were getting pulled out of the current. The lifeguard rescued and grabbed the boy, the son, and tried to grab the father as well."

Haskett advised people to swim in knee-deep water in front of the open lifeguard tower so they can be seen if they are in distress.

"The mother and son have remained on the beach at the same location since yesterday," a local told DailyMail.com. "Neighbors have provided them with water and blankets and chairs."

"And one neighbor who lives right on the beach just steps away from the incident has opened his doors for them in case they need a bathroom or a place to rest," Venice local Patricia Powell told the Mail.

Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves - regret for the past and fear of the future. Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable. Life is too short, time is too precious, and the stakes are too high to dwell on what might have been. Live now. Enjoy today. For tomorrow is not promised. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #Wwe #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #ROH #RingOfHonor #NJPW #NewJapanProWrestling #wcw #nwo #AEW #AllEliteWrestling #MLW #TagteamWrestling #Tagteam #wwe #wweraw #TagteamChampions #smackdown #smackdownlive #wweedge #DrewMcIntyre #johncena #Nwo #JohnMorrison #NewDay #StreetProfits #wwesmackdown #smackdownlive #ThrowbackThursday ??

"Twilight" actor Gregory Tyree Boyce and his girlfriend, Natalie Adepoju, 27, were found dead at his home in Las Vegas.

The 30-year-old, who played high school student Tyler Crowley in the 2008 movie, was supposed to be in Los Angeles last week, visiting his daughter.

A cousin who was asleep inside the home woke up and noticed the actor's car was still parked outside. He went to check on Boyce and discovered the bodies.

TMZ reports white powder was found in the home.

The cause of deaths are pending and a police investigation is ongoing.

The late actor's mother, Lisa Wayne, took to social media to reveal Greg was "in the process of starting a chicken wing business, West Wings."

"He created the flavors to his perfection and named them after west coast rappers: Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar, Roddy Ricch, The Game, etc.," she said.

She added: "I can say that my son was my favorite chef. He was on to something great and that was his passion."

Boyce's acting career was short-lived -- after appearing in Twilight, he went on to star in a short film titled Apocalypse. He never worked as an actor again.

A 5-year-old boy and a woman drowned in the backyard swimming pool of former Los Angeles Dodgers star Carl Crawford.

Crawford was hosting a small gathering of 6 people at his Houston home when the accident occurred. The boy was swimming alone in the pool when he began to show signs of distress underwater.

A woman who jumped into the pool to rescue the boy struggled to resurface.

Crawford, 38, dived into the pool and managed to pull them out. Both victims were unresponsive by the time medics arrived at the scene.

They were pronounced dead at Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital. The woman and the boy, identified as Bethany Lartigue and Kasen Hersi, were unrelated to each other.

The boy's mother was at work at the time of the incident.

Friends paid tribute to Lartigue, who played for a professional women's football league.

"Our hearts are heavy. We know you have found eternal peace. Your soul touched us all! You were our solider, teammate, friend & SISTER!

We will retire the #4 in your honor! You are #4EVEROURHERO," they wrote on Instagram.
 

A Houston Police Department source said no charges will be filed against Crawford. The deaths will be classified as accidental drownings.

In March, a Texas judge denied a motion filed by Crawford, CEO of 1501 Certified Entertainment, to lift a temporary restraining order preventing him from blocking Megan Thee Stallion's new music release.

Crawford dated reality TV personality Evelyn Lozada. They welcomed a son together and had plans to marry before breaking off their engagement.

"White privilege" flyers are showing up around New York City criticizing police enforcement of social distancing laws along racial lines.

The flyers point out the glaring disparities between police issuing summonses to Black people for social distancing violations and few summonses issued to whites.

The flyers, posted in New York City's public parks, mocked the NYPD and asked white people to "recognize your white privilege."

Viral videos show police tackling Black men to the ground and arresting them for social distancing violations.

"If you are white and hanging out in a group of 5 or more people, please wait patiently for an NYPD officer to personally deliver a mask to you. Please practice social distancing by remaining 6 feet from others unless of course you are white, then there are NO rules or consequences because YOU ARE PRIVILEGED AF and it shows."

The sign offered friendly advice: "Recognize your white privilege" and "Don't be racist."

Cyberhackers have doubled their ransom demand to $42 million to unlock celebrity files on a law firm's compromised servers.

The hackers also threatened to reveal "dirty laundry" on President Trump if their demands are not met by next week, Page Six reported.

Hackers illegally accessed the computer systems of Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks, a law firm based in New York City that represents a long list of high-powered VIPs, corporations, A- and B-list celebrities and pro athletes.

An unsuspecting employee may have clicked a phishing link, giving the hackers access to the company servers.

The hackers then downloaded over 756 GIGs of data including contracts and personal e-mails, according to Page Six.

The hackers demanded $21 million to unencrypt the data. That ransom has now doubled to $42 million.

When the law firm's founder, prestigious celebrity attorney Alan Grubman, refused to pay the ransom, the hackers claimed they would publish President Trump's dirty laundry.

"The ransom is now [doubled to] $42,000,000 … The next person we'll be publishing is Donald Trump. There's an election going on, and we found a ton of dirty laundry on time.

"Mr. Trump, if you want to stay president, poke a sharp stick at the guys, otherwise you may forget this ambition forever. And to you voters, we can let you know that after such a publication, you certainly don’t want to see him as president … The deadline is one week.

“Grubman, we will destroy your company down to the ground if we don't see the money."

The long list of clients include Drake, LeBron James, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Barbra Streisand, Nicki Minaj, Mike Tyson, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Spike Lee, Lil Nas X, and many more.

The law firm also represents corporations, including MTV, HBO, EMI Music, Playboy Enterprises, Spotify, and more.

The police are powerless to help the law firm because the hackers are based in Russia or some other far flung communist country that doesn't cooperate with U.S. law enforcement.

The police usually advise hospitals, municipalities, and corporations that are hacked to pay the ransom or lose all their files.

Some companies back up their hard drives and databases on the Cloud or at offsite digital storage facilities that can't be accessed by hackers. But the hacking group deleted the law firm's backup files.

Singer/songwriter David Crosby hit back at fan speculation that he only served as "sperm donor" for lesbian rocker Melissa Etheridge, 58, and her ex-partner Julie Cypher.

Etheridge's son, Beckett Cypher, died Wednesday of an opioid overdose after struggling with drug addiction for years. He was 21.

Crosby, a co-founder of Crosby, Stills & Nash band, donated sperm so Cypher (left) could conceive son Beckett and daughter Bailey Cypher.

Etheridge, Crosby and Cypher were featured with their children, Bailey and Beckett, and Crosby's wife, Jan Dance (left), on a 2000 cover of Rolling Stone magazine as an example of a modern family (below).

Crosby, 78, took to Twitter.com on Thursday to dispute allegations that he only served as the sperm donor and was not actively involved in his children' lives.

One fan wrote: "I respectfully point out, David was their donor... They did not have a son 'with' him. He was Melissa and Julie's child. They raised him. Like most donors, he played no other part."

Crosby responded: "Not true."

In a 1994 interview, Etheridge told The Advocate about her plans to have children with then partner Cypher.

She said she hoped having children would help society overcome their fears of homosexuals raising children.

"I think one of the many fears people have about homosexuality is around children. I think that the more gay parents raise good, strong, compassionate people, the better the world will be," she said.

But Cypher and Etheridge split in 2000. Etheridge went on to have twins in 2006 with new partner Tammy Lynn Michaels. They broke up in 2010 after dating 8 years.

Cypher has been married to a man, Matthew Hale, since 2004.

The White House has revealed there is no plan in place for succession of power should both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence contract the coronavirus and die.

If the worst happens, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo could possibly be sworn in as acting president. The Supreme Court would take up the legalities of succession.

Constitutional experts say Pelosi can't be sworn in as president because she doesn't fit the definition of "officer" as required in the Constitution.

The Constitution defines an officer as part of the executive branch. Pelosi is part of the legislative branch.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told London's DailyMail.com: "That's not even something we're addressing," when asked what is the plan if both the president or vice president are incapacitated by the virus.

McEnany assured DailyMail.com: "We're keeping the president healthy. We're keeping the vice president healthy and you know they're healthy at this moment and they'll continue to be."

She added: "I think that's something all reporters should be celebrating and the American people as well."

Supporters lined the road as President Trump arrived to tour medical equipment distributor Owens & Minor in Allentown, Pennsylvania on Thursday.

Trump did not wear a face mask. Many of his supporters were also bare-faced. All factory workers wore face masks and matching neon t-shirts.

Frustrated employers can't get their employees to return to work because they earn more from unemployment benefits.

A Baltimore restaurant owner can't get her workers to return to work because they can collect up to $1030 a week on unemployment until the end of July.

Melony Wagner said Tuesday that she can't get her employee to return to work at Charles Village Pub, because they prefer to collect unemployment benefits which pays more.

Other states are experiencing employee retention problems because the state and feds pay more than they earn at work.

In Georgia, home improvement stores Home Depot and Lowes posted large "Help wanted" signs outside their Duluth locations after their employees quit to apply for unemployment.

According to a report by FOX 5 News, Maryland residents can claim a maximum of $430 a week from the state plus an additional $600 a week from the federal government under the CARES Act enacted in March 2020.

"It's a very difficult position to be put in right now, honestly," Wagner told FOX 5 News. "Although I know everybody loves the extra $600 a week, it's really had the opposite effect of what I think they were hoping it was going to have."

NC Senator Richard Burr has agreed to step down as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee after he allegedly sold stocks to avoid huge financial losses amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Burr faces allegations of insider trading, which is punishable by prison time and stiff fines.

Burr, a member of the Republican Party, is the first to step down after a handful of GOP and Democrat lawmakers were accused of selling stocks during the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic in March.

The list of senators under investigation include Georgia Senator Kelly Loeffler (GOP), Calif. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Democrat), and Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe (GOP).

The news comes after Burr was served with a warrant to search his cellphone on Wednesday after previously being served with a warrant to access his iCloud account.

Burr and his wife are accused of selling $1.7 million worth of stocks to avoid huge losses before the country was ordered to shut down.

Burr's brother was also accused of selling stocks on the same day.

Celebrities and pro athletes are sweating bricks after a prestigious law firm that represents them was hacked and their personal data was compromised.

The hackers threaten to release the personal data to the public if $21 million ransom isn't paid very soon.

Hackers infiltrated the computer systems of Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks, a law firm based in New York City that represents a long list of high-powered VIPs, corporations, A- and B-list celebrities and pro athletes.

The hackers used a phishing link in an email to trick an employee into giving them access to the company servers. Then they downloaded over 756 GIGs of data including contracts and personal e-mails sent and received by clients, according to Page Six.

Now the hackers are demanding $21 million ransom to restore the data and unlock the firm's website, which is down.

The long list of clients include Drake, LeBron James, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Barbra Streisand, Nicki Minaj, Mike Tyson, Maria Carey, Mary J. Blige, Spike Lee, Lil Nas X, and many more.

The corporations repped by the law firm include MTV, HBO, EMI Music, Playboy Enterprises, Spotify, and more.

The law firm can't access any client files online because the hackers have the files encrypted. Only the hackers can access the files.

The police are powerless to help the law firm because the hackers are based in Russia or some other far flung country.

The police usually advise hacked hospitals, municipalities, and corporations to pay the ransom.

Some social media users are hoping the law firm doesn't pay the ransom so they can learn if LeBron is indeed paying child support for a love child.

Black conservatives distanced themselves from Candace Owens when she suggested Ahmaud Arbery was not out jogging the day he died in Glynn County, Georgia.

Arbery, 25, was killed by Travis McMichael, 34, and his father Gregory McMichael, a retired police detective, in Brunswick, Ga.

The two suspects caught Arbery inside a neighbor's home that was under renovation. They pursued Arbery to make a citizen's arrest, but he was killed during a struggle when he reached for Travis McMichael's shotgun.

Owens, a conservative pro-Trump activist, dismissed the narrative that Arbery was just out jogging that day.

He wore a white t-shirt and khaki shorts that sagged off his buttocks -- not the typical jogging outfit.

Owens tweeted on May 9:

"Ahmaud Arbery was caught on camera breaking into an unfinished property that was owned by Larry English. His mother has confirmed it is him in the video. Please stop with the "just a jogger" bullshit narrative. Avid joggers don’t wear khaki shorts & stop to break into homes."

She added:

"Daily mail has published the full 4 minute video of Ahmaud Arbery WALKING* up the street, and then ENTERING a private property which was under construction. As I said: He didn't deserve to die but the 'just a jogger' narrative was a race-baiting LIE."

Black conservatives reacted with anger to Owens' tweets. They distanced themselves from Owens.

Jonathan Throwe, former South Carolina director for the BLEXIT movement, said Owens will do anything to please white people, including criminalizing a Black man after death.

Throwe said he left the BLEXIT movement because he resented Owens portraying Black America negatively in the face of white supporters.

"She will blatantly ignore the facts that would equally cause White America to have to look in the mirror themselves on key issues," he said.

"I decided to resign from BLEXIT to prevent being associated with someone who doesn't speak for Black people, but speaks against Black people."

Diante Johnson, President of the Black Conservative Federation, asked, "Why is she so hateful?

And Shermichael Singletary, a conservative political commentator for cable news, addressed Owens indirectly: "If you're Black & conservative and your [sic] only purpose is talking down your own community for applause & acceptance from white people, you have a problem."

The Democrats have a problem on their hands. Their only candidate, Joe Biden, is forced to campaign from his basement during the coronavirus pandemic.

That leaves the Democrats with only one option: mailing ballots to every registered voter in the country -- and hope they mail them back.

The House Democrats' latest coronavirus stimulus package contains billions of dollars to allow local officials in blue states to mail out voter ballots to every registered voter and to legalize the process known as ballot harvesting.

Election officials will be counting over 100 million ballots long after the November election is over.

28.4 million mail-in ballots went missing during the 2012 elections, and the Trump administration fears more shenanigans involving mail-in ballots in November.

President Trump accused Nancy Pelosi of attempting to steal the election for 77-year-old Biden, who reportedly suffers from senile dementia.

The new stimulus package bans states from requiring an ID or social security number from a registered voter requesting an absentee ballot.

States would also be banned from requiring witness signatures on absentee ballots.

A House vote on the new bill is expected on Friday. But Senate Republicans say they will not approve the package because they are in no rush to add more trillions to the federal budget deficit.
