Hillary Clinton Wins At Dominoes, Beats East Harlem Senior Citizens
Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton is definitely trying to show folks she can be down with the people. This can be seen during a recent dominos match she had at the Corsi Senior Center in East Harlem, New York on Friday morning, KTUL reported.
The lively game included Clinton and three other gentlemen. One player told her, “You play good! Oh my God. “
She then replied, “I’m taking dominoes to the White House,” she replied. Seconds later, she shot her hands up in the air as the winner. “So, now I can play both Chinese and Puerto Rican dominoes,” she exclaimed as she shook her competitors’ hands. “Help me win next Tuesday, OK? I’ll come back and play with you guys anytime. Thank you.”

13 Ariz. Department of Corrections Employees Fired After Inmate Suicides
After an investigation of two inmate suicides at two separate facilities in Arizona, Department of Corrections Director Charles Ryan has fired thirteen staff members including three supervisors, Fox 10 Phoenix reported. Another 8 were suspended or reprimanded.
The first suicide involves 25-year-old Cynthia Apkaw, who was serving time for aggravated assault at Perryville women’s prison. Video footage shows officers hanging out inside an air-conditioned command center instead of watching the inmates, Fox 10 reports. Meanwhile, Apkaw was hanging from the ceiling with a tied bed sheet tied an investigation found. Another inmate at the Arizona State Prison-Florence, Scott Saba, 45, hanged himself with an electrical cord. A report found this death was partially due to the lack of patrolling by prison officials.
Ryan stresses that these examples of inaction aren’t a systematic problem, just a few bad apples in the bunch. “I don’t believe this is a reflection on 9,100 other employees, but the message is these 21 employees didn’t do their job the way they should have, and they’ve answered for it,” he said.
Lifetime Fast-Tracking Movie About Flint Water Crisis
Borrowing from Law and Order’s “ripped from the headlines” mantra it was recently announced that Lifetime Networks has fast-tracked a film about the Flint Water Crisis.
According to Headline, “Flint” will tell the story of the thousands of—predominantly Black and low-income—residents of the Michigan city that were exposed to high lead levels and other toxins in their water when state officials decided to save money by switching their water supply.
The film is a semi-adaptation of the Time magazine’s February 1 cover story, “The Toxic Tap.” It will be executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who created NBC’s “The Wiz Live!” and the 2012 “Steel Magnolias” remake starring Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad and Jill Scott.
