Woman Sues Atlantis Hotel After She Found Hundreds of Bedbugs In Room -blogged by @BenitaShae ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A #Florida woman has filed a lawsuit against the #AtlantisHotel after she claims she found hundreds of bedbugs in her hotel room. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Miami native Cindi Avila, was on vacation at the Atlantis on Paradise Island in the #Bahamas last January when she says she discovered the infestation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "One morning I woke up and I noticed I had some bites on my body, within a minute," Avila told Inside Edition "I then saw a bug jumping on the bed and I smashed it. All of sudden my body was just popping out with bites everywhere. It was immediately very painful, very itchy." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Avila said she inspected the room herself, and her jaw immediately hit the floor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I could not believe my eyes. I pulled up the mattress and there were hundreds of bedbugs. I knew this had probably been there for months and this bed skirt had never been changed," Avila said. "I think that's what I was most stunned about...and how many other people did this happen to? How many other people is it going to happen to?" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Avila claims that the hotel didn't seem to care but later refund her the money for her stay. The hotel offered Avila to help with her medical bills, but she wouldn't accept it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "The resort offered to reimburse Ms. Avila for any medical bills resulting from her experience, which she declined. Since that time, Ms. Avila has repeatedly, and through three different attorneys, attempted to extract a large financial settlement from the resort and threatened intimidation in the media if her financial demands were not met," their statement said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Only one word describes this, YUCK!

El Chapo Handed Over to the US, Just Before Donald Trump's Inauguration - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Joaquin " #El Chapo " Guzman, one of the world's most notorious drug traffickers of all time, has been extradited to the United States. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Aside from moving enormous amounts of drugs in the US from Mexico, the infamous drug kingpin became widely known by staying a few steps ahead of officials. Then, when finally caught, Guzman managed to escape from prison several times, with the help of prison officials. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Late Thursday (Jan 19), Guzman arrived in New York after being extradited. Apparently, the timing of the extradition was strategic. According to reports, Mexican officials wanted to hand Guzman over to the United States, just before the inauguration of #DonaldTrump. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The drug lord will appear in federal court on Friday in Brooklyn, where he will stand trial at a later date, CNN reports. While Guzman is being transported to court, the Brooklyn Bridge will be closed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Guzman faces six separate indictments in the states, as well as charges in California, Texas, Illinois, Florida and New Hampshire. However, if convicted, he will not receive the death penalty.
Elijah Cummings Talks Inauguration: “If The Public Knew What Members of Congress Know….” They Would Boycott Too -blogged by @msjennyb - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The inauguration of Donald Trump is less than 24 hours away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In light of the swearing in of the President-elect, demonstrators have filled the streets to protest the reality star’s presidency. Since the election, celebrities and leaders of both political parties have denounced some of Trump’s views, divisive language and actions. Many have severed ties with all things Trump to further demonstrate their disapproval of the President-elect. Others have taken their objection a bit further with a vow to boycott the inauguration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, according to Rep. Elijah Cummings, if the general public had access to classified information about the President-elect, more people would join the rally to boycott the presidential inauguration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Cummings revealed that he would be at the inauguration, but over 50 Democratic politicians will not be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “You’ve got to understand that members of Congress have a lot of information that the public does not have,” Cummings said, in regards to Russia’s involvement in the U.S. election. “And I can tell you over the last week or two, the classified briefings that I have been to, and if the pubic knew what members of Congress know…The information will come out later at some point. Then the public will fully understand.” Cuomo interjected, wondering why the public has not been made aware of the information Cummings is referring to, “If it’s that important that it’s going to make people not go to the inauguration….shouldn’t people know?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Apparently, Congress needed to do more to investigate Russia’s involvement in the election and FBI Director Jame Comey’s role in the WikiLeaks scandal for more information to be released to the public.....to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile) #readmore #clickthelink #logon
