I love this country. I love the state of New York, where I was born and raised, and where my husband and I are raising our almost-2-year-old daughter. When I see the images of Syrian refugees risking their lives to escape the terror in their native country or read about the Nigerian girls who were kidnapped from their school by Boko Haram, my heart aches, and surges with gratitude that I live in America. But with the news of each deadly mass shooting, the sense of security I feel here is falling away.
Even more disturbing, while my fear and my anger mount each time I learn that innocent lives were lost to gun violence—at church, on college campuses, at the movies, at the supermarket—I’m no longer surprised by the headlines. I remember the horror I felt in my gut when my mom called to tell me about the Newtown massacre as I waited for a flight at LaGuardia on December 14, 2012. Three years later, tweets and TV special reports announcing mass shootings are routine.
I worry for my own safety. Over the summer, when the lights went down at the movie theater where I went to see Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck, I wondered for a brief moment: “Could someone here take out a gun and start shooting?” That’s what happened at a Lafayette, Louisiana, showing of the same movie, where a gunman opened fire into the crowd, killing two women: Mayci Breaux, 21, and Jillian Johnson, 33.
Far worse, I worry for my baby’s safety. More than once, when ringing the buzzer and waiting for the door to unlock at her daycare, a wonderful place filled with loving people and the wallpaper of children’s drawings, my mind has gone to a grim place: “Could the wrong sort of person slip in here somehow? Could she ever be hurt at this, or another, school?” It’s happened before, many times, in many places.
It’s tempting, and momentarily comforting, to tell yourself, It won’t happen to me. Like the jolt of panic you feel when your plane lurches with turbulence and you reason with yourself: What are the odds? But when it comes to gun violence and schoolchildren, that rationale isn’t working for me. The odds, as it turns out, are sickening.
I gathered the following statistics from the CDC, the FBI, and Everytown for Gun Safety, Michael Bloomberg’s gun-control group. (It should be noted that Everytown defines school shootings to include “accidental discharges of firearms, suicide attempts, and incidents in which no involved party was affiliated with the school.”) Unbelievably, or believably, since I began writing this piece in my head yesterday morning, and compiling these numbers, there have been two more school shootings in this country. A freshman killed one student and injured three more at Northern Arizona University; another student was fatally shot and a second person was injured at Texas Southern University. What is there left to say?

(AllHipHop News) Fetty Wap is set to add a #1 album to his list of accomplishments this year. Billboard reports the New Jersey representative is looking to push around 110,000 equivalent album units of his self-titled LP. That should be enough to land Fetty in the pole position on the Billboard 200 album chart.
According to HitsDailyDouble, Fetty Wap only sold close to 60,000 pure albums. The rest of the 110,000 units came from track equivalent album and streaming equivalent album totals.
Last week’s top project came from Drake and Future. The duo’s What A Time To Be Alive is looking to fall to #2 on the album chart. The joint effort opened with 375,000 units (334,000 pure album sales).
The equivalent album units estimates for WATTBA have not been released yet, but the traditional album sales for the mixtape are nearing 60,000 copies. That would be an 80% drop in sales in one week.
New York Fashion Week — or #NYFW, to be more specific — has a reach far beyond the more than 61,000 who shared content on Instagram or Twitter. According to numbers gathered by Pixlee, from Sept. 10 to 15, conversations using #NYFW and #NYFW15 had reached 6.6 billion people across Twitter and Instagram. Instagram posts with those hashtags garnered 37 million likes, and on Saturday alone, the conversation reached 2.1 million people. Of submitted photos, 78.4 percent were on Instagram and 21.6 percent were on Twitter. And the top engagement? That went to @selenagomez, posting about “feeling downtown chic” to Instagram from Polo Ralph Lauren. Even though she said “#imnotamodel #tryinsohard,” she obviously is doing something right; the post has 1,520,829 likes, and counting. (Fellow poster @brooklynbeckham also posted from the venue, but his likes were “only” in the hundreds of thousands.)

At the Teen Choice Awards, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell react to ‘Straight Outta Compton’s’ opening weekend box office numbers.
In an attempt to shore up her falling poll numbers, Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton went on the offensive, lashing out against minorities, considering a run as a third party candidate, and giving out Senator Bernie Sanders’ phone number. “She is finally tapping into the anger of the American public,” said Owen Cumbertweak, Clinton’s campaign Messaging Brigadier. “This is the outsider Clinton, not the Hillary Clinton who launched her presidential campaign in April and rebooted it six times after that. Because, remember, before she was a Washington insider, she was an outsider. So now, she’s an outsider again, but, like, a super outsider.”
The former Secretary of State made these comments during a rambling, unscripted seventy-minute speech, which included other observations:
I want to be the Democratic nominee, but if they don’t treat me fairly, I may keep the door open for something else. You like Joe Biden so much–why don’t you marry him? And give me a break–Martin O’Malley? Loser. Lincoln Chafee? He’s from Rhode Island–the smallest state, full of Hispanics and not the good kind. And Bernie Sanders? He says he’s a socialist, but Ronald Reagan once said he was a Democrat and look what happened. The Justice Department? Stupid. The State Department? Full of idiots and stupid idiots. I mean, if it weren’t for me, none of you would even be talking about hacking or secret documents or computers or national security. You should be thanking me for using a private server! We need to build a cyber wall and I’ll make the Russians and the Chinese pay for it. They will pay for it and they’ll give each person in the United States a new car. Russia and China love me. They love me. Everybody loves me! I get things done because I have a lot of money. If I can get 25 million dollars making speeches, I can get Russia and China to do whatever I want. Also, Maureen Dowd is a bimbo.
Following the speech, a Qunnipiac poll indicated that Clinton fell to twenty points behind Sanders and twelve points behind a DeWalt cordless drill.

On Monday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned of a “potentially historic” snowstorm that could dump up to 3 feet of snow across the five boroughs. The city had 1,800 plows at the ready and 250,000 tons of salt to spread over the 6,000 miles of city roads.
But when New Yorkers woke up Tuesday morning, they saw a more paltry 7 to 9 inches of the white stuff outside — a veritable Snor’easter.
And while city-dwellers were spared the worst of the storm — which pummeled parts of Long Island and New England with over 30 inches of snow and up to 70 mile per hour winds — that doesn’t mean it didn’t leave its mark on the Big Apple.
The number of rabbits seized from a Brooklyn backyard as the storm approached the city. The bunnies’ owner told DNAinfo that about 20 police officers temporarily confiscated the cuddly pets to protect them from the elements.
The number of non-emergency vehicles that should have been on the city’s streets after 11 p.m. Monday. Mayor de Blasio announced a travel ban, which ended at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.
The NYPD said Tuesday that no one was arrested or issued summonses for violating the ban. The streets were eerily empty in Manhattan:

Acres of New York City parks that were closed to the public during the storm. The parks are back open now, but de Blasio warned people to be on the look out for falling branches as trees are weighed down with snow.

The number of people Louis C.K. had to tell that he was canceling his sold-out show at Madison Square Garden because of the storm.
From an email CK sent to the ticketholders:
“…there seems to be a massive storm approaching New York City. They are calling this storm “historic” which…. Well I didn’t know you could call a thing historic if it hasn’t happened yet. But I’m not one to defy future historic events. And I have to be respectful of the responsibility I have to the 15,000 people who are holding tickets to the show and could be stranded somewhere historically trying to get to or from my show. I think it’s clearly better that I alter history in the name of safety and cancel. Besides, if you’ve ever tried to get your deposit back when you rent a banquet hall for a wedding that gets snowed out, you don’t want to even know what the deposit is on Madison Square Jesus Christing Garden is.”

The number of men in Brooklyn looking for that special woman on Craigslist who wants to have sex in the snow. (We actually wouldn’t be surprised if there were others. After all, plenty of people flocked to the site in search of company during the storm.)
“Looking for a pretty lady that has a fetish for cold,” the post reads. “After making naked snow angels we will then proceed to have ‘hot’ snow sex. I understand this is a very unique fetish so no experience is needed!”
Approximate miles of subway tracks that were devoid of passengers from 11 p.m. Monday until 9 a.m. Tuesday. It was the first time the subway service has ever been suspended because of a snowstorm.
