Television programming for some California viewers was interrupted for about a minute Thursday with a disturbing message warning of the end of the world.

“Realize this, extremely violent times will come,” a voice in the alert said, according to the Orange County Register.

The alert interrupted Cox and Spectrum broadcast customers in Orange County around 11:05 a.m.

The cause of the alert was because one or more radio stations conducted an emergency test and did not transmit the end tone which completes the test, Joe Camero, a Cox spokesman told the Register Thursday.

Broadcast stations then picked up the audio feed that sent the alert.

Both providers are investigating the cause of the alert and whether it was done intentionally. wftv.com
Did Travis Scott rap about getting Kylie Jenner pregnant? Fans sure think so!

Since news broke on Friday that the couple is expecting their first child together, the 25-year-old rapper’s fans have been dissecting his explicit lyrics from SZA’s “Love Galore.”

The track was released in April, right around the time he and the Life of Kylie star began dating, and in his verse he talks about impregnating a woman.  

“You say, ‘La Flame, keep makin' fire’ (ooh)/ Let me c** inside ya, let me plant that seed inside ya (ooh),” raps Scott, which has fans thinking that he’s referencing Jenner.

Hours after the news broke that the couple was expecting, the "Butterfly Effect" rapper made an appearance at at LIV nightclub at the Fontainebleau in Miami with Kourtney Kardashian's ex, Scott Disick. etonline.com
In 1962, Bradley's sister took him to James Brown's landmark performance at the Apollo Theater – the show transformed Bradley, who would later find regional success in New York as a James Brown impersonator named Black Velvet.

In 2011, Bradley released his debut album No Time for Dreaming with the Menahan Street Band after a string of singles – the album, which included the galvanizing "The World (Is Going Up in Flames)," was named by Rolling Stone as one of the 50 Best Albums of the Year.

Victim of Love, with its unlikely hit "Strictly Reserved for You," would follow in 2013, earning near-universal critical acclaim and bolstering Bradley's status as a soul star with unmatched authenticity. 

Bradley's final album, Changes, arrived in 2016, taking its title from a cover on the album of Black Sabbath's 1972 ballad.

Bradley hadn't heard of the heavy metal pioneers, but connected with Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler's personal lyrics about transformation as Bradley watched his mom's health deteriorate.

Over the course of three albums, Bradley, known as the "Screaming Eagle of Soul," blended heartfelt ballads of love, longing and remorse with raucous tracks celebrating joy and the survival of a hardscrabble life.  rollingstone.com
It took more than a year, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made their first public appearance together as a couple — even if they were separated by a couple rows.

The Suits star, 36, star showed her support for the royal, 33, at his Invictus Games in Toronto, which runs from Saturday through Sept. 30.

Markle, who films the hit legal drama in the Canadian city, was all smiles as she cheered on the athletes in the Paralympic-style Invictus Games for wounded service members from around the world. Meanwhile, Harry sat a few rows away next to First Lady Melania Trump whom he met with earlier in the day.

Markle wore a purple dress with a purple leather coat over her shoulders as she sat with friend Markus Anderson.

She stood along with the rest of the crowd during the Canadian national anthem and clapped heartily as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (her acquaintance and a friend of Harry) made his welcome address.

She also applauded as Mike Meyers — an official ambassador of the games — gave a rousing speech, talking about his parents who served in World War II. people.com
Beijing ordered hundreds of factories to shut and allowed children to skip school as choking smog reached over 25 times safe levels, casting a cloud over China's participation in Paris climate talks.

A thick grey haze shrouded the capital with concentrations of PM 2.5, harmful microscopic particles that penetrate deep into the lungs, as high as 634 micrograms per cubic metre – the reading given by the US embassy dwarfs the maximum recommended by the World Health Organisation, which is just 25 micrograms per cubic metre.

Swathes of northern China were hit and levels in Jinan, a provincial capital hundreds of kilometres away, reached over 400.

Airlines cancelled over 30 flights from Beijing and Shanghai, many to highly polluted Shaanxi province which is a key coal producer.

The smog nightmare came after Chinese President Xi Jinping vowed "action" on greenhouse emissions at the climate change summit in Paris.

Most of the country's greenhouse gas emissions come from coal burning which spikes in winter along with demand for heating and is the main cause of smog. telegraph.co.uk
The move, brought in among a host of other new traffic laws, applies to all facial coverings including masks but has been interpreted by many as a ban on burqas and niqabs.

The German parliament’s upper house, the Bundesrat, introduced the measure to “ensure a driver’s identity can be determined” if they are caught speeding.

Although the law allows some religious head coverings such as headscarves worn by Muslim women, critics have said the move is symbolic.

Earlier this year, the German parliament supported a draft law banning women working in the civil service, judiciary and military from wearing a full-face Islamic veil.

German chancellor Angela Merkel announced her support for the move, saying full-face veils were “not acceptable” in the country and calling for them to be banned “wherever it is legally possible”.

In February, the state of Bavaria prohibited full-face Islamic veils in schools, universities, polling stations and government offices. independent.co.uk
Six people have been injured in Stratford, east London, in a reported acid attack.

Police were called to Stratford Centre, opposite Westfield, just before 20:00 BST, following an "altercation" between two groups of males where a noxious substance was thrown.

Ambulance crews treated six males at the scene for their injuries, and three of them were taken to hospital.

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.

Those reported injured were believed to be in a number of different locations, sparking initial fears that people had been sprayed at random.

However the Met Police said those injured were connected to the initial attack. bbc.com
Laarge amounts of federal aid began moving into Puerto Rico on Saturday, welcomed by local officials who praised the Trump administration's response but called for the emergency loosening of rules long blamed for condemning the U.S. territory to second-class status.

In northwest Puerto Rico, people began returning to their homes after a spillway eased pressure on a dam that cracked after more than a foot of rain fell in the wake of the hurricane.

The opening of the island's main port in the capital allowed 11 ships to bring in 1.6 million gallons of water, 23,000 cots, dozens of generators and food.

Dozens more shipments are expected in upcoming days.

The federal aid effort is racing to stem a growing humanitarian crisis in towns left without fresh water, fuel, electricity or phone service.

Officials with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is in charge of the relief effort, said they would take satellite phones to all of Puerto Rico's towns and cities, more than half of which were cut off following Maria's devastating crossing of Puerto Rico on Wednesday. chicagotribune.com
Catalonia's top security official says the regional government is refusing to hand over control of a regional police force to Spanish central authorities who are trying to stop a referendum on independence.

The announcement by the Catalan interior chief Joaquim Forn followed a move by Spain's Interior Ministry to take over coordinating all policing efforts to stop the Oct. 1 Catalan independence vote that the Spanish government considers illegal.

The measure would mean that Madrid would send direct orders to the regional Mossos d'Esquadra police, who have been criticized for not cracking down hard enough on preparations for the vote.

Forn said the chief of the Mossos d'Esquadra had expressed his opposition to the measure during a meeting Saturday with the top state prosecutor in Catalonia and chiefs of two other national police forces, the National Police and the Civil Guard.

Forn says "we denounce the attempt by the state to intervene in the police forces of Catalonia." usnews.com
North Korea’s Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told the United Nations on Saturday that U.S. President Donald Trump had made “our rockets’ visit to the entire U.S. mainland inevitable” by calling North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “rocket man”.

“Through such a prolonged and arduous struggle, now we are finally only a few steps away from the final gate of completion of the state nuclear force,” Ri told the annual gathering of world leaders for the United Nations General Assembly.

“It is only a forlorn hope to consider any chance that the DPRK (North Korea) would be shaken an inch or change its stance due to the harsher sanctions by the hostile forces,” he said. reuters.com
