The man, who according to family members has a daughter in first grade at the school, barricaded himself into a classroom with a female teacher just after 11 a.m.

It’s unclear if the man is armed. A small amount of smoke was seen coming from the classroom, but it since dissipated and isn’t believed to be an incendiary device.

The man’s uncle told ABC7 he has “no access” to weapons and is just having “an emotional breakdown.” They apparently took his car keys away, but he was able to get to the school anyway. See that interview (below):

Terrorist Attack in Lower Manhattan: Truck Driver Kills Eight

Word by Nick Slay


Residents of lower Manhattan are in dismay and shock after eight people were left dead following a deliberate attack by a truck driver earlier today. Based on New York police reports, the driver drove a Home Depot rental truck onto a bike path on West Street, a couple blocks up from Chambers street. After the truck struck down multiple people on the bike path, the vehicle collided with another vehicle on the street.

Witnesses on site saw the truck crashing into a school bus as that other vehicle. Then, the suspect was shot by police while, “displaying imitation firearms” as he left. The suspect, who was firing a BB or pellet gun shouted out “Allah Akbar” as he fired into the busy street, prompted the police to shoot the 29 year old in the abdomen. He was then taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Mayor Bill de Blasio described the event as, “a particularly cowardly act of terror” at a news conference this evening. He went on to say, “We know that this action was intended to break our spirit, but we also know that New Yorkers are strong, New Yorkers are resilient,” Mr DeBlasio said. “We have been tested before as a city, very near where this attack occurred.”

A spokesperson confirmed that the New York mayor and Governor Andrew Cuomo headed down to the scene after it was confirmed there was no longer an active threat. The incident was initially reported as a shooting near Chambers street and the West Side Highway. The scene ended with media footage showing broken bikes strewn along the bike path, bodies on the ground with tire tracks, and people being loaded into ambulances on stretchers. The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force will be taking lead of the investigation. This attack was consistent with a number of other terrorist attacks in recent years using vehicles as weapon, most noticeably Nice, France and London

Alec Baldwin Takes A Couple Tries To Defend His Relationship With Accused Sexual Predators James Toback & Roman Polanski!

Alec Baldwin is distancing himself from accused Hollywood pervs.

The Saturday Night Live regular got some heat this week after a picture circulated on Twitter of him breaking bread with James Toback and Roman Polanski, two notable filmmakers who have been accused of sexual harassment and assault.

The photo, taken at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, received attention after being shared by Harvey Weinstein accuser Asia Argento, who wrote:

In a response to Argento’s tweet, the 30 Rock star tried to play dumb about the filmmaker’s predatory reputations — but that didn’t go so well:

Whoops. OK, take two!

Days after his reply backfired, the Emmy-winner issued a longer, more thought out response in an interview with the L.A. Times, where he spoke on his “positively business” relationship with Toback.

When asked about the recent allegations on Toback, the actor claimed he didn’t know the details of the director’s icky behavior with women — because they just didn’t talk about that stuff! He explained:

“In all the time I’ve known Jimmy, I never had one conversation about his sex life, which is not unusual for me because I’m not sitting down with some guy and he’s saying to me, ‘Man, you should have seen what I did last night with this girl in this hotel.’ I don’t go there.”

Hmmm. Sounds like a great way to avoid being guilty by association.

Baldwin has worked with Toback — who has recently been accused of harassment by over 300 women, including Selma Blair and Rachel McAdams — in multiple films, including his most recent The Private Life of a Modern Woman.

While Baldwin wasn’t privy to the dirty details of the disgraced director’s behavior, he wasn’t totally in the dark about it either. He added:

“He had an appetite for going up to women and saying salacious and provocative things to them and introducing himself with his credentials and so forth, and laying that on people to seduce them. I never knew any details of what he did that was assault in nature or rape in nature or criminally actionable. Never, never, never.”

Baldwin says he has spoken with Toback, who he calls “one of the smartest” and “cleverest” people he knows, since the accusations have come out, adding:

“He’s obviously crushed by all of this. I did call him, and I think he understands how people are. There’s not much people can do for him now.”

Now it’s starting to make sense why all these Hollywood dirtbags were able to abuse their power for so long. All their colleagues simply turned the other way!

We don’t see any of Toback’s friends coming to his rescue anytime soon.

The “Dry Creek Residence” Is Surrounded by Wine Country

Visit the original post to see all 12 images from this gallery.

San Francisco-based firm, John Maniscalco Architecture have designed a contemporary home in Healdsburg, California, that offers serene vistas of Dry Creek Valley from every room.

With its original design consisting of an existing ranch home, the architects completely revamped and expanded the residence to essentially modernize it to meet the client’s desired requirements.

Flaunting a cleaner and rectangular profile in varying volumes, the house features large overhanging wood lined roof sections that cover walkways and connect the overall circulation of the home. The floor plan also allows for seamless indoor-outdoor living experiences as each pavilion is positioned around a large deck and swimming pool.

Inside, clerestory windows to provide more light and fresh air, offer a separation between the walls and the wood ceiling. The living area, dining area and the kitchen all share the same room that looks out onto the pool and the view.

Additionally, sliding glass doors open the bedroom to the outdoors, while the wooden ceiling protrudes outside and becomes a perfect overhang that provides shade on a sunny day.
