Woman murdered on phone/ Quadruplets charity

Mar. 27 Woman murdered on phone: This is a pretty scary story I found on MSN news:

A woman has been stabbed to death in a Sydney park shortly after telling her husband that a suspicious man was following her.
Prabha Arun Kumar was taking a shortcut through Parramatta Park at around 9.30pm on Saturday when she was murdered in what police say was a "horrific" attack.
She was just 300 metres from home when the killer stabbed her repeatedly in the neck.
Mrs Kumar was found by a passer-by but died in hospital from massive blood loss.
"She was walking while talking to [her husband] on the phone when she said that a suspicious-looking man was following her," brother-in-law Thrijesh Jayachandra told Indian newspaper The Hindu.
"The next moment he heard her scream for help and then plead with the man not to harm her and take all her belongings if he wanted.
"Seconds later, he heard her scream and say she was stabbed."
Portland school shooting: I found this on Yahoo on Dec. 12, 2014:
PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - Three teenagers were shot and wounded on Friday near a Portland, Oregon, alternative high school, police said, and officers were searching for a suspect who ran from the scene following the gunfire.
The two boys and one girl shot outside Rosemary Anderson High School in north Portland were "conscious and breathing" as they were rushed to a local hospital, the Portland Police Bureau said in a tweet.
jeffH: So this is a so called at-risk high school. In other words, the school district doesn't want these kids but still want the federal money for teaching them.
Quadruplets charity: I found this on Yahoo news:
A father whose wife died just hours after giving birth to their quadruplets has received an outpouring of support from strangers all over the world. A GoFundMe page set up for the family has already received more than $332,000 in less than two months.

 
On January 16, Carlos and Erica Morales welcomed three girls and one boy — Carlos Jr., Tracey, Paisley and Erica. But after delivering four healthy babies via C-section, Erica, 36, went into hypovolemic shock, a condition that involves severe blood loss, and died a few hours after her children were born. Today, Carlos is raising the kids by himself in Phoenix, Ariz., though not without help from his mother-in-law, friends, and now, more than 9,000 strangers.
“To think that so many people are giving me whatever they can afford makes me smile,” Carlos told People of the more than 9,300 donations he has received through the fundraising page. “Every single penny will help so I can give my babies a great life.”
The page, which was set up by Erica’s friend Nicole Todman, has a goal of raising $500,000. “The expense of raising 4 children alone is quite daunting for any middle class family, now the with the loss of Erica’s income, her husband will need all the help he can get,” Todman writes. “My goal is to help ease the financial worry as much as possible so every dollar helps, if it’s $1 or $1,000, it will all be used to provide for the beautiful babies Erica fought so hard to have and in the end gave her life for.
My opinion: The story was bittersweet that the mother died.  However, a lot of people came through and donated money to this family.
Stranger buys wedding dress: I found this on Yahoo:  
She said yes to the dress, and then a stranger paid for it.
About a month ago, Liz Jensen accepted her boyfriend’s proposal.
Last Friday, the Provo, Utah, woman found her dream dress at a pop-up shop called Elizabeth Cooper Design.
Unfortunately, the full-time Brigham Young University student — and seventh of eight children — couldn’t afford the gown’s $480 price tag.
"My dad has been unemployed for a while," she told the Deseret News. “The cost of things add up.”
While Jensen was admiring the gown, a women approached the store owner and asked her if any of the brides in the store could use some help.
The stranger, another bride-to-be who failed to find her own dream dress that day, then paid for Jensen’s dress.
When Jensen learned this, she burst into tears.
"Who pays for someone’s wedding dress?" she said. “It’s something I’ll never forget.”
The store is keeping the generous stranger’s identity a secret, at her request.
"The fact there was somebody in the store watching me and seeing how much I loved the dress and taking the time," Jensen said, “She didn’t even know me.”
Jensen hopes her story will somehow reach her benefactor so that the woman will know “how grateful I am and how special she will be to me.”
Jensen will wed her fiancé, Jimmy Gillespie, on May 1. She told the Deseret News that the stranger has an open invitation to the wedding.
murray_johnc :A touching story, but let's hope her future husband is a solvent, conscientious and reliable man. As that sheriff in Flint Michigan, Fred Ross, once said, you can always be broke on your own, why on earth would you want to marry into poverty.
My opinion: How sweet.
Jessie J sings with mouth closed: I found this on Yahoo.  Go to the 1 min. 55 sec part and she sings “Bang Bang.”  It’s pretty funny.
Christina Aguilara’s singing impressions: I thought it was very good how she did Britney Spears, Shakira and Cher.  I kind of laughed.
Katie Couric: She ends her talk show.  I saw a few episodes and there was one about charity, the price of college, etc.  They were smart episodes.
William Shatner: I was reading the newspaper and I found this funny:
"I got patted down one time, wearing loose-fitting clothing, and my pants fell down. It was one of the most embarrassing moments of my life," Shatner said, recalling the incident at Los Angeles International Airport.
