Denver schools closed as police hunt 'armed and dangerous' girl obsessed with Columbine massacre

Denver schools closed as police hunt 'armed and dangerous' girl obsessed with Columbine massacreDenver-area public schools were closed onWednesday as authorities searched for a young Florida woman who flew to the city and bought a gun after becoming "infatuated" with the mass shooting atColumbineHigh School. The FBI said Sol Pais, 18, was"considered to be extremely dangerous" and "made threats to commit an act of violence in the Denver metropolitan area" just days before the 20th anniversary of the attack that killed 13 people. All schools in the Denver area were urged to tighten security because the threat was deemed "credible and general," said Patricia Billinger, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Public Safety.Columbineand more than 20 other schools outside Denver locked their doors for nearly three hours on Tuesday afternoon before Wednesday's complete closures were announced. The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and the FBI say Ms Pais travelled to Colorado from Miami on Monday night and bought a pump-action shotgun and ammunition. Denver Public Schools said that all facilities and programmes wouldbe closed Wednesday, and there wouldbe no afternoon activities or athletic competitions. The district said the decision to close campuses was in collaboration with other Denver metro-area school districts due to the ongoing safety concern. On Tuesday, some schools released their students after additional security was called in and canceled evening activities or moved them inside. "We always have heightened awareness close to high-profile anniversaries like this," Ms Billinger said. Authorities said Ms Pais was last seen nearColumbine- in the Jefferson County foothills outside Denver - wearing a black T-shirt, camouflage pants and black boots. They appealed for anyone seeing her to call an FBI tip line at 303 630-6227, and said she is too dangerous to be approached by civilians. The alert also said police who come into contact with her should detain her and evaluate her mental health.

The FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force issued a notice Tuesday describing Pais as "infatuated with (the)Columbineschool shooting." Sheriff's spokesman Mike Taplin said the threats she made were general and not specific to any school. The Denver Post reported that a call to a phone number listed for Ms Pais' parents in Surfside, Florida, was interrupted by a man who identified himself as an FBI agent and said he was interviewing them. Surfside Police Sgt. Marian Cruz confirmed that her parents last saw her on Sunday and reported her missing on Monday. The Miami Herald and WTVJ are reporting that neighbours say the teenageris a senior at Miami Beach High School. The Associated Press left messages at two numbers listed for Ms Pais' relatives in Florida, while another number was disconnected. Two teenage gunmen attackedColumbineon April 20, 1999, killing 12 classmates and a teacher.

Donations for gutted Brazil museum a fraction of Notre-Dame's

Donations for gutted Brazil museum a fraction of Notre-Dame'sAs donations for the restoration of the Notre-Dame cathedral top $900,000, the director of Brazil's devastated National Museum can only hope for such deep pockets in his own country. Nearly eight months after a faulty air conditioning system sparked a fire that gutted Latin America's main natural history museum and destroyed most of its collection, just $280,000 or so has been raised for its reconstruction. "We are very happy for the extremely positive reaction of French society and we hope that following this example Brazilian businesses and millionaires will start to send us their donations," Alexander Kellner, director of the Rio de Janeiro-based museum, told AFP.

"It (the removal) probably has more to do about the process of cooking the burger in McDonald's than it does what the consumer is saying about the food," said Howard Penney, a managing director at Hedgeye Risk Management.

Lou Dobbs Wonders Who Ilhan Omar Represents Because It Isnt AmericaChip Somodevilla/GettyFox Business Network host Lou Dobbs continued right-wing medias weeklong outrage cycle over Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omars comment about 9/11 by accusing her on Wednesday night of not representing America.For days now, Fox opinion hosts and Republican politicians have taken aim at the Muslim-American lawmaker for remarks she made last month, claiming she minimized the 9/11 terror attacks when she said Muslim-Americans were treated as second-class citizens because some people did something. This resulted in President Trump tweeting out an inflammatory video targeting the freshman congresswomana video Omar says sparked new death threats against her.Speaking to Republican strategist Amy Tarkanian on Lou Dobbs Tonight, Dobbs blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for not stripping Omar of her committee assignments over her remarks.She wont remove Congresswoman Omar from the foreign relations committee because why? Dobbs wondered. Because she thinks so little of America?!The Trump-loving hostwho occasionally gets patched into Oval Office meetingswent on to question the Minnesota lawmakers loyalty to the United States.Who is she representing?! Dobbs exclaimed. Because it isnt America with her thoughts and her regrettable remarks about September 11th and 3,000 victims who lost their lives that day.Dobbs accusation that Omar doesnt represent America comes on the heels of Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade saying last week that you have to wonder if she is an American first, remarks he somewhat walked back later. And last month, during another Omar-related controversy, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro found herself suspended for two weeks and strongly condemned by the network for suggesting on air that Omar didnt believe in the Constitution because she wears a hijab.
