Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Jun 7, 2016
June 7, 2016
Today's police blotter:
A jewelry store in India was robbed --by a monkey.
Security footage shows the monkey through a piece of fruit into the store. When the shopkeeper opens the door to give the fruit back, the animal runs inside and opens the cash drawer. The monkey is seen snatching wads of bills before making a clean getaway. The animal reportedly netted $144-dollars. (Still)
The Heat Is On...:
Get ready to shell out for the air conditioning --this summer is gonna be a scorcher for most of the United States. That's the word from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Their Climate Prediction Center's summer outlook predicts above-average temperatures, especially with the warmer temperatures generated by the El Niño, a climate cycle. CBS News says Alaska's Aleutian Islands have the highest chance of a particularly hot summer, according to NOAA. Only a small portion of the central U.S. will be spared; Nebraska, Kansas and most of South Dakota --along with some areas of Oklahoma, Colorado and Wyoming, which likely will have an average summer because they had more rainfall. Everyone else --we're outta luck. NOAA says we should all expect, "above-normal temperatures through the fall across the entire country." (Bartha)
"Pretty Little Liars" star SHAY MITCHELL, who plays Emily Fields on the series, has reportedly locked up a nice role in the upcoming horror film, "Cadaver."
Shay will not be playing the title character --the cadaver. Instead, Variety reports she'll play a disgraced ex-cop and recovering addict who must take a graveyard shift at the morgue in the hospital where she got sober. After a brutally murdered body is delivered to the morgue, she begins seeing violent murders taking place. You get the picture.
Grace notes from Vinny Marino:
THE ROOTS call Philly home, which is why their annual Roots Picnic is held in the City of Brotherly Cheese Steaks. But, since the guys are also the house band for NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," which is taped in New York City, The Roots will do a two-day picnic in Manhattan's Bryant Park, about 10 blocks south of where they work at Rockefeller Center. The festival is set for October 1st and 2nd with D'ANGELO, JOHN MAYER, DAVID BYRNE, the WU-TANG CLAN, NILE RODGERS and others already lined up to perform. (Marino)
