“NEW YORK (AP) — Natalie Cole’s family said the singer’s cause of death was idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension, which led to heart failure.
Her family said in a statement to The Associated Press on Thursday that after Cole received a kidney transplant in 2009, she was diagnosed with pulmonary arterial hypertension, a rare lung disease that causes shortness of breath, dizziness and sometimes chest pain.
Because Cole’s case was idiopathic, the exact cause is unknown.”

Cleveland police officers cleared in Tamir Rice shooting #RIPTamirRice

“CLEVELAND – A grand jury cleared two Cleveland police officers in the November 2014 fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was brandishing a toy gun in a park, due to a lack of evidence indicating criminal activity, a prosecutor said on Monday.

The grand jury for weeks had been hearing testimony on the shooting of Rice, which took place within seconds after police arrived at a park next to a Cleveland recreation center in response to reports of a suspect with a gun. Rice died the next day.

Rice’s shooting is one of several cases that have raised questions about police use of deadly force in the United States, particularly against minorities. The officers are white and Rice was black.

Rice was playing with a replica handgun outside a recreation center when Officer Timothy Loehmann shot him twice within seconds of reaching the park in a squad car driven by his partner, Frank Garmback.

“Simply put, given this perfect storm of human error, mistakes and miscommunication by all involved that day, the evidence did not indicate criminal conduct by police,” Tim McGinty, the Cuyahoga County prosecutor, said in a statement mad to the media.”

Note from us,
We’re Sending Our Prayers To The Family Of Tamir Rice.

Golden Girls” star Rue McClanahan goes viral five years after her death: We miss you Rue!!!

“News of the death of the Emmy-winning actress who played the bawdy Blanche Devereaux on the hit TV series “The Golden Girls” was trending on Twitter and Facebook Thursday. Strange, given that McClanahan passed away five years ago. Even stranger: The same thing happened last year.

McClanahan died on June 3, 2010, after suffering a stroke at the age of 76. Four years later, on June 10, 2014, the news suddenly went viral, with many people linking to the 2010 obituary of McClanahan on CBSNews.com.

Thursday, word of McClanahan’s death once again resurfaced with a renewed online outpouring of mourning. And once again, traffic soared on CBS News’ story.”

We miss you Rue!!!
