This is the terrifying moment after an explosion ripped through the neighborhood of Chelsea in Manhattan.

President Barack Obama delivered his final keynote address to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation on Saturday but he started his speech with some not-so-subtle jabs at Donald Trump. Just a day earlier Trump admitted Obama was born in the U.S. ending his 'birther' movement. Obama began his speech saying: 'I've got an extra spring in my step tonight.

David Bowie may have killed himself according to a new book

Millions adored David Bowie (bottom right, with wife Iman). Most never got near him. For all the adoration, there are still the mysteries, the unanswered questions: What was the truth about his mother (shown top right with Bowie and first wife Angie) and his fears about her past? Did he get that startling left eye (shown main) in a punch-up as he claimed? And what were the real circumstances of a death which prompted such an outpouring of emotion? He died on Sunday, January 10. No one but the closest even knew that he was ill. Just as he wanted. Just as he'd lived. By his own rules. My account of David Bowie hangs humbly on my memories and personal experiences of the man and his music, and on those of a handful who were once close to him.
