Texas Shooter May Have Illegally Had Weapons



Dimitrios Pagourtzis, the suspect who is said to have opened fire on people at Santa Fe High School on Friday may have had illegal possession of firearms. The shooter is said to have killed ten people and wound another ten.

According to Texas Governor Greg Abbott, the shooter was actually illegal in possession of both a shotgun and a .38 revolver. He's said to have gotten from his father.

Greg Abbott said: "Neither of these weapons were owned or legally possessed by the shooter."

Abbott did mention that it's not entirely known if the father was aware that his son took his weapons at the time.

While the shooter had the weapons, he's said to have spared the lives of those he liked and specifically targeted the classmates that he disliked.

Gaming Scholarships are coming in hard.

Scholarships are unique and always offered to people who are exceptional in some way or another. Gaming has never really been considered when it came to scholarships but recently that idea has changed.  the National Association of Collegiate esports, scholarships have risen by five times.  So, all those times people sat down and were on the backs of gamers just because they played games instead of playing “actual sports” might finally be coming to an end.

This is a great tool for many people who don’t play traditional sports because it can give them the ability to help pay for school while doing their past time. Playing some games like Counter Strike Global Offensive, a first-person shooter that puts teams of five people up against each other and the best tactics and accuracy win is just one way someone could end up getting that degree in writing they so desperately want.

Counter-Strike is arguably one of the larger Esports games out there. Just today CSGO yanked in a whopping 435,721 players for its peak, according to the steampowered website.

What this means is that there must be a good portion of those people playing competitive matches. Out of those players, the ones to actually get a scholarship will be small. This is because the vast majority of players aren’t going to go pro. You’ll have the odd one who will but in general, most people just play to pass the time and be social. They basically just want to have a good time and hang out with the people around them.

Scholarships already offer a large portion of people the ability to get a good education for less or even no money. This is just another avenue for people to actually go ahead and take. They don’t have to be held back by being gamers. That alone is something a lot of gamers feel because they see the Football, and baseball scholarships available to the best. They never had an option before but they now do and people are going to try and take advantage of it. More often than not, you’re going to see some people jump on this and end up going truthfully pro. It will be a sight to remember because it’s literally history. It would be the first time someone could say that they went to school under a scholarship to effectively become a professional gamer. It’s also the job title that millions of people have wanted for decades but are only capable of kind of getting now.

The Cleaning Of The Chateauguay River Is Happening


Chateauguay river (Michael Normandin vanguardnews)


Chateauguay is a relatively small town. It's only got a population of around fifty-thousand people but manages to show an initiative to stay green. The "Cleaning Of The Chateauguay River" is essentially where people get together and clean the banks of the river. It's also said that around two-hundred trees will be distributed.

The activity is set to take place rain or shine on May 19, 2018, and the location will be on Marcel-Seers Park. This is said to be the intersection of D'Youville Boulevard and Girouard Street.

Some people who are quite fit will be allowed to partake in going into steep sections of the river banks. This will be done by using safety harnesses as well as ropes. It's expected that this will be done by two teams. There's also going to be teams of around ten-twelve people who might be doing the less physical activity but will still clean up the river bank. Every team should have a leader that will be selected for them. The teams are apparently going ot be trained on-site.

There are also going to be two water bottles provided to each individual at the start of the event. It's also said that gloves and garbage bags are going to be provided.  As a reward, the participants will be able to go to a free BBQ at the end of the entire clean up.

We spoke to Marcus Jit, a local resident of Chateauguay and asked him what he thinks of this initiative and if he'll be able to attend.

He said: "Ok well this is the first I'm hearing of the river cleaning I think it's a great idea that will make the spot more popular with people during the summer I don't think I would be able to participate in any of the cleanings due to my schedule but I would be fine donating some money to help buy cleaning supplies and anything else they might need."

Warren Buffett Doesn't Seem Like A Fan Cryptocurrency

Warren Buffett, a billionaire doesn't seem to like Bitcoin. While many millionaires and just people, in general, love the entire idea about cryptocurrency. He expressed his opinion on the subject at the 2018 Berkshire Hathaway meeting. It's generally for shareholders.

According to CCN, Buffett said: “If you buy something like bitcoin or some cryptocurrency, you don’t really have anything that has produced anything." What this means is that when someone buys Bitcoin, it's not really like purchasing a good or service. It's more like just paying for something that you're told you have.

While many people might be running to argue this statement, they must examine the reason why. Warren Buffett and others like him tend to look at things differently than most. His point could come off as the cryptocurrency market being a bubble while many other people see it as a currency run by the people for the people.

Other high profile individuals might disagree with Buffett. Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey is said to truly believe that Bitcoin will be the currency of the future. According to CNBC, he mentioned that he expects Bitcoin to be the currency of the future for the internet.

Overall, Warren Buffett doesn't come off as someone who likes Cryptocurrency or Bitcoin in general. However, other people who are pretty big in the world of business seem to disagree with Buffett. Whatever the case may be, it's certainly something that can cause some division in whether or not cryptocurrency is reliable and sustainable for the future world.
