Los Angeles (CNN)Joanna Schroeder has a warning for parents of teen and tween white boys: If you don't pay attention to their online lives, the white supremacists will.
"They've studied the way that our young men interact online, and they have looked at what these boys need," she said. "And they have learned how to fill those needs in order to entice them into propaganda."

Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins says he owes his career to his mom. When you hear her remarkable story of survival, you'll understand his devotion.
She can't see her son, but she knows he's there.
Seventeen years. That's how long it has been since she lost her vision when a woman she didn't know threw acid at her face, blinding and disfiguring her in a bout of jealous rage. Greenlee was a single mother of four in South Carolina, caught up in abusive relationships, hustling to survive. DeAndre was 10 years old. Over time, she regained her sight in spurts, but it disappeared completely a few years ago, just as her son was emerging as one of the NFL's brightest stars. Since then, millions of people have watched the Texans wide receiver dive for otherworldly catches on the national stage, racking up more receptions through the first six seasons of a career than any other player in NFL history. Greenlee sees Hopkins' highlights only in her mind. "I visualize everything that he does," she says. "The dreads, the body movement."

Atlanta police have charged a 15-year-old in the August shooting of two students outside a football stadium in southeast Atlanta.
The shooting, which occurred Aug. 17 following a game at Lakewood Stadium, left a 12-year-old paralyzed from the chest down, AJC.com previously reported.
The teen charged in the shooting was not identified because he is a juvenile. He was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault, Atlanta police spokesman James White said Wednesday morning.
I pray that this victim can someday walk again and lead a normal life. Dayum!!!!

My mom is always talking about it after seeing it on National Geographic channel. Who knew elephants had a sanctuary of all places, in Tennessee?
And it is NOT open to visitors. Fascinating!!!
The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee exists to provide captive elephants with individualized care, the companionship of a herd, and the opportunity to live out their lives in a safe haven dedicated to their well-being, and to raise public awareness of the complex needs of elephants in captivity, and the crisis facing elephants in the wild.

Would-be sheriff creates a campaign video featuring some of his most embarrassing moments to remove the sting before his opponents
Craig Stivender might not be the brightest crayon the box given that he thought it was a bright idea to include an old picture of himself in blackface in his promotional video running for Sheriff.
“I want to tell you some things that politicians would try to hide, things that my opponents may try to use to tarnish my integrity,” he says in the video.
Stivender also admitted he has anger issues and has done “things” he regrets.
Beauford or whatever your name is,
YOU TRIED IT. #EpicFail

A former University of Georgia student pleaded guilty Friday to running a Ponzi scheme that defrauded investors, including fellow students and their families, from his Athens fraternity house.
