    NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A crime watchdog raises concerns about the snowball effect of crime, after Wednesday’s murder of a man who was out on bond, in spite of two second-degree murder charges pending against him.

    As she turns 81, the singer whose intimacy matches her grandeur is the subject of a public television documentary, “Irma: My Life in Music.”The singer Irma Thomas has long been known as the Soul Queen of New Orleans, a title that feels both richly deserved and far too provincial. Her songs never topped the Billboard pop chart, but they did climb it. And even today, they’re covered by bar bands and in blues jams across the country. Still, if the title suggests a mix of regality and relatability, it makes decent sense. Irma Thomas is, first and foremost, a straight...

    NEW ORLEANS — We might have a better idea of where the mysterious boom came from Tuesday night. People all across the city, and even beyond, reported heard a loud "boom" that even shook some homes, but no one has been able to answer what it was. While we cannot confirm the exact cause, a data analyst believes he knows the general area it came from. Using about six surveillance videos from all across the city, he calculated how long it took the sound to reach each person's home. All of his findings intersected in one spot. "I think it...

Residents in the Marigny and Bywater areas told the Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate that the explosion shook their homes around 11:15 p.m. The New Orleans police and the fire department said they received several calls reporting the explosion, but neither department has confirmed a cause. Some residents speculated that the sonic boom could have been caused by a meteorite crashing into earth. A similar event was reported in Pennsylvania on New Year's Day.

    Only 6 of the 109 homes remain in reasonably good shapeBrad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation built 109 eye-catching and affordable homes in New Orleans for a community where many people were displaced by damage wrought by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Now this housing development is in disarray. The vast majority of the recently constructed homes are riddled with construction-related problems that have led to mold, termites, rotting wood, flooding and other woes. At least six are boarded up and abandoned. Many residents have filed lawsuits that are still pending. That is, a nonprofit that built houses with input from...

    Sean Payton has plenty of options for how he will spend next fall, but one will not be coaching the New Orleans Saints. The longtime head coach announced Tuesday that he is stepping down from his job with the Saints after 16 years at the helm, and while he isn’t ruling out coaching again, he said his plans “are not to be coaching in 2022.” “I don’t know what’s next and it kind of feels good,” Payton said Tuesday during a heartfelt press conference. “I don’t like the word retirement. … I still have a vision for doing things in...

  • UK Does Not Advise “Vaccines” for 5-11 Year Olds, While the US Starts to MANDATE Them

    NOQ Report ^ | 12/24/2021 | Vinay Prasad
    It is always instructive to highlight differences in the vaccination policies between nations. After all, the clinical trials that guide these decisions are the same across nations.Yet, different experts can view the same risk-benefit decisions differently, or view uncertainty differently. In my mind, there is clearly a problem if one nation advises AGAINST doing something while another location MANDATES it. I think we should all agree that this makes no sense. One should not deploy the brute force power of the mandate if a decision is sufficiently debatable that another nation literally advises against it.This already happened with LA County’s...
  • Biden's 'infrastructure czar' is a total incompetent: This guy will oversee $1.2 trillion in "infrastructure" spending. His record as mayor of New Orleans is appalling

    prisingly, most of the funds will be spent on projects that have nothing to do with infrastructure. With this appointment and the resulting media attention, Landrieu's stock is rising so fast that CNN has just added him to the list of potential Democrat party presidential candidates in 2024. Does Landrieu deserve all this hype? Certainly not when considering his performance as mayor of New Orleans. For eight years, Landrieu was a disaster as mayor. The list of his failures is too numerous to document, but here are a few of the lowlights. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) suffered a...

    JAKARTA, Indonesia - The closest most people will ever get to remote Papua, or the operations of Freeport-McMoRan, is a computer tour using Google Earth to swoop down over the rain forests and glacier-capped mountains where the American company mines the world's largest gold reserve. With a few taps on a keyboard, satellite images quickly reveal the deepening spiral that Freeport has bored out of its Grasberg mine as it pursues a virtually bottomless store of gold hidden inside. They also show a spreading soot-colored bruise of almost a billion tons of mine waste that the New Orleans-based company has...

    The Biden administration is preparing to sell off more than 80 million acres of the Gulf of Mexico to oil and gas drilling companies in the largest federal offshore drilling auction in U.S. history—less than a week after the UN climate change conference COP26, where nearly 200 nations promised to reduce fossil fuel emissions. The annual Gulf of Mexico lease sale is planned for November 17 in New Orleans. The 80 million acres on sale is expected to produce around 1.12 billion barrels of oil and 4.2 cubic feet of natural gas over the next 50 years. The controversial auction...

In Sunday’s announcement, the White House touted Landrieu’s work shepherding New Orleans through its recovery following...
