ORLY, France — French soldiers shot and killed a man who wrestled a colleague to the ground Saturday and tried to steal her rifle at Paris’ Orly Airport. The melee forced the airport’s busy terminals to close and evacuate and trapped hundreds of passengers aboard flights that had just landed. The 39-year-old Frenchman, who authorities said had a long criminal record and was previously flagged for possible radicalism, first fired bird shot at police officers during an early morning traffic stop before speeding away and heading for the airport south of Paris.

/ Go to Source Article While perhaps best known for his role as an investor on the hit show Shark Tank, Robert Herjavec doesn’t always, well, swim with sharks. VentureBeat caught up with him at the Google Garage in Silicon Valley where he mixed it up with a room full of school kids eagerly pitching him their inventions. Instead of seeking investment from sharks like Barbara Corcoran and Mark Cuban, the kids were participating in Frito-Lay’s Dreamvention contest. Born in Croatia, the 54-year old Herjavec immigrated to Canada with his parents at a young age. His taste for business came from delivering newspapers and went on to include selling IBM mainframes. In 1990, he founded his first company BRAK Systems and sold it 10 years later …

/ Go to Source Article NEW YORK (WABC) — ABC’s “The Catch” is back for a second season, and the show’s stars say that this time around, the stories will feel a little different. Peter Krause and Mireille Enos get good grades on Hollywood’s most important test: chemistry. “You either like to play with each other or you don’t,” Krause said. And luckily, they were pleased with the pairing. “We had a rehearsal before we ever started shooting, and even just in that little time, it was clear that we just understood how to bounce things and how to be next to each other,” Enos said. “It was easy.” For Enos, it was a chance to go towards the light …

/ Go to Source Article NEW YORK (WABC) — 20 years after the murder of Notorious B.I.G. at the age of 24 in Los Angeles, celebrities, friends and fans are paying tribute. The legendary Brooklyn rapper, whose real name was Christopher Wallace, died in a drive-by shooting on March 9, 1997 nearly six months after the murder of Tupac Shakur. Both murders remain unsolved. Many took to social media on Thursday to post remembrances of Notorious B.I.G., also nicknamed Biggie Smalls. Why so many Biggie references in Hamilton? Because as a storyteller, he’s unmatched. He set the bar: we’re all reaching for it. #RIPBig — Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) March 9, 2017 (Copyright ©2017 WABC-TV. All Rights Reserved.)
