There’s no denying that Cory Booker has gone above and beyond when he can for the people of Newark. The “Super Mayor” has done countless self-less acts such as delivering diapers in a snow storm, offering his home to those in need after Hurricane Sandy, brought Hot Pockets to those without food after the hurricane, running into a burning building and more. Yesterday, Eyewitness News’ Toni Yates was in Newark, noticed there were two dogs in the freezing cold, and alerted the mayor via Twitter and he spring into action. Watch more below.
Tom Brady is referred to at times as the King of NFL quarterbacks, but this is taking it to a new level. Brady will be prepared for any attacks by Medieval forces with their flame throwers and bow&arrow weapons with his new $20 million dollar mansion. The moat that is going around the house is sure to keep enemies at bay. All jokes aside the house looks crazy and I wish I had a moat to ward off all the noblemen and peasants who are always trying to battle with me. When your one of the best quarterbacks to ever do it, and you have countless endorsements dropping millions on the home of your dreams is nothing. Check the video after the jump of an overhead view of the property and check the gallery for a pic of the moat. All hail King Brady. It must be the ugg’s.
It was first rumored that Apple would release its 5th gen iPad this March but it looks like things have been pushed to sometime in October, just in time for the holidays. By doing this is Apple doing themselves a disservice, with Samsung making a big push to knock off Apple as the top mobile company. According to blog site iLounge they claim they “had the opportunity to inspect a supposedly accurate — and seriously intriguing — physical model of the completely redesigned fifth-generation iPad.” He noticed that the design of the new tablet takes many cues from the iPad mini, which others have reported as well, and includes “virtually no left or right bezels.” If this is true Apple may lose some Tablet market share due to cheaper tablets like the Nexus 7 and Samsung’s 7 inch tablet.

So, after one suspect (Carlton Berry) being arrested and charged with aggravated assault, there comes another, Trey Foster. Initially there were suppose to be two shooters in the Lone Star College incident, but officials are saying that there was only ONE gun. Check this out, there is a third guy that’s said to be involved. Berry and Foster are suppose to be friends, and then you throw in Jody Neal, who according to Foster “bumped” him. You’re going to jail over a bump ??? This is crazy. Check them out in the gallery.
Fox says the remaining Ben and Kate episodes will air at some point (there are six left). Given Ben and Kate‘s ratings, the move wasn’t a surprise (if anything, some were shocked the show received an order for additional episodes last fall). This isn’t one of those decisions where you say, “The network didn’t give it a chance.” Read more below!!
WME has landed Oprah Winfrey. About a month after exiting her longtime agency CAA, WME’s Ari Emanuel has signed the OWN CEO. The news comes a week after Winfrey’s newsmaking interview with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, which was watched by 3.2 million viewers over two nights Jan. 17 and 18. The interview, which became the second-most watched OWN program after Winfrey’s exclusive sit-down with Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, brought copious media attention to Winfrey’s still-nascent channel and might have spurred potential new viewers to find it on their cable systems.

If you are from the New York area, you know how bitterly cold it has been around here lately. Every day for the past few days, people have braced the cold by bundling in numerous layers and even that isn’t helping many. It’s so cold, that people have been advised to stay indoors if it is possible and many have taken that advice including murderers. This past week NYC has had a completely murder-less week. From Wednesday to Wednesday, there has not been a reported homicide in the city. The last time NYC had a murder-less week was during Hurricane Sandy, in which surprisingly crime rates were down everywhere. The NYPD knows that the crime rate won’t always stay this long, but it’s certainly not a bad thing. Read more below.
I wish this story would disappear the same way Te’o disappeared during the BCS title game. Pow! Zing! But seriously I am so fed up with the coverage this guy is getting from the media. I hope everyone realizes at the end of the day if he winds up being part of the hoax it really doesn’t mean anything. No laws were broken and no rules were violated. Worst case NFL teams will think twice about him, which I am sure they already are doing. We are basically covering an over-hyped linebacker who I am expecting will not be anymore than an average NFL player. But, news is news and there is a new update to this story with a twist. Read more after the jump.
