New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu told a news conference Monday that given the number of people at the playground, it's "pretty clear that people do know" who the shooters are.

  • Trudeau tells BBC interview in London he left Canadian detractors 'in the dust'

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has used an interview with an influential BBC current affairs show in London to issue his most pungent retort yet to his Canadian detractors. Trudeau, 43, endured more than two years of Conservative party attack ads declaring him "just not ready" before sweeping prime minister Stephen Harper from power in last month's federal election. Asked by BBC television's NewsNight program about his famous family name, Trudeau didn't deny that having had his father Pierre Trudeau lead the country for almost 16 years opened some doors.

  • Adele Wore Burberry Again Because She’s a Supportive Brit (13 photos)

    When Karl Lagerfeld, the reigning King of Fashion, fat shames you, there’s no better revenge than to step out in some gorgeous outfits. For Adele, who became the target of the Kaiser’s out-of-touch body opinions a few years back, she proved that even people who are “a little roundish” can drop mics both literally in regards to music and figuratively in the sartorial sense. And looking great — and doing even greater things — is like one large metaphorical f** you (to him, all her exes, and anyone else that’s ever doubted her).  The singer, with her album set to debut on November 20 after a three year hiatus (she settled down, had a baby, and spent time gathering source material) has been doing just that, with fashion-forward music videos any designer would give up green juice forever to be a part of, public appearances in sparkly gowns Kate Middleton might eventually wear, and street-chic ensembles that style bloggers will emulate with step-by-step shopping details. From multiple Jenny Packham gowns to statement coats (including one inspired by Mr. Snuffleupagus), the hits don’t stop for Adele at ballads.   Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

The jury verdict came in the third week of Derek Medina's trial in the August 2013 killing of 27-year-old Jennifer Alfonso at their South Miami home.

  • Hyundai's Genesis brand will challenge German's elite with a BMW 3 Series rival

    Hyundai’s newly announced Genesis luxury brand (not to be confused with the Genesis coupe and sedan) has some grand plans, according to the Korean automaker’s U.S. chief. Hyundai Motor America CEO Dave Zuchowski has confirmed its Genesis sub-brand is working on a compact sport sedan to wage battle against German’s core luxury players: Audi’s A4, BMW’s 3 Series, and Mercedes-Benz’s C-Class. This news helps clarify Hyundai’s vision for its Genesis brand: to elevate the manufacturer to the realm that just decades ago Japanese automakers like Lexus struggled to infiltrate. In addition to the 3 Series sedan rival, Zuchowski suggested that a crossover is on the way. This isn’t much of a surprise since its slated rivals are throwing themselves full-force into all manor of crossover designs. For Genesis to effectively compete, it will need at least a pair of crossover body styles to lure shoppers. Related: Hyundai Spins Off Its Genesis Nameplate Into A Sub-Brand For an indication of the design direction Genesis plans to take, Hyundai revealed the Vision G Coupe Concept ahead of this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Its striking design, inside and out earned praise and we’ll likely see several styling cues make their way into Genesis’s first planned model: the G90 sedan. Set to replace the Hyundai Equus, the G90 will be a full-size luxury model serving as the brand’s flagship. Six models are presently in the works, including a replacement for the Genesis sedan (at least in part because its name is a bit confusing) and its coupe derivative. Add the smaller sedan and its crossover counterpart to the mix and there’s only one other spot on the roster to be filled. Unlike Nissan/Infiniti and Toyota/Lexus, Hyundai doesn’t have immediate plans to add Genesis-specific showrooms or even force Hyundai dealers to sell Genesis models. Zuchowski stated that he believes dealerships will naturally want to sell Genesis models as more are offered and consumer demand grows.
