A 2-year-old girl was recovering Monday after deputies said she was left in an unlocked vehicle in the employee parking lot of the Grand Floridian Resort, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said.

Walt Disney Security told deputies at about 1:12 p.m. that the girl had been found in the vehicle unattended with the windows cracked a few inches, investigators said.

Security officers said they got the girl out of the vehicle and called 911.

“Due to the fast response of the security department at Walt Disney, the 2-year-old female was successfully transported to the nearest hospital (Celebration Hospital) where she is in stable condition,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement released to the press.

The statement did not say how long the girl had been in the vehicle when she was discovered.

Deputies made contact with Myriam Luhincadet, 37, who is accused of leaving the toddler in the vehicle.

The Sheriff’s Office did not say what her relationship to the child was or if she was an employee of the resort.

Luhincadet was arrested on a charge of child neglect and was taken to the Orange County Jail without incident, deputies said.

No other information was immediately released on the incident.

Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Daddy Yankee call for hurricane relief aid for Puerto Rico 

The entire U.S. territory of Puerto Rico remains without power after Hurricane Maria led to heavy destruction across the island Sept. 20. In the wake of the damage, three musicians with Puerto Rican heritage are calling for others to donate to relief efforts.

>> Read more trending news

Puerto Rican singer rapper Daddy Yankee appeared on CNN Monday morning to talk about the devastation on the island where he still lives and was born and raised.

“A lot of people don’t know I’m from Puerto Rico,” he said. “I have my family there, I have my wife, my daughter, and I live there still ... and we really need your help.”

The musician, whose birth name is Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez, said people on the island continue to struggle and called for the government to step in to help.

“A lot of people don't know Puerto Ricans are American citizens ... we need the federal money for the citizens and for the government to help the locals.

“I know a lot of people are struggling. There’s no communication, no power on the island, the hospitals are not working,” he said. “We need the government to be more proactive.”

For his part, Yankee has donated $100,000 to Feed America and another $100,000 to the Red Cross. He said he has $1 million he plans to donate to various areas as the island begins to recover. Yankee has also asked that his fans donate insect repellent, water and batteries. He plans to personally take the items to the island. 

On Sunday, Jennifer Lopez announced during a joint news conference with New York Gov. Chris Cuomo that she was making a $1 million donation from the proceeds from her Las Vegas residency show to aid the island.

“Given the loss and devastation we need to pay attention and to urgently support the Caribbean with donations and contributions,” Lopez said at the news conference. She went on to say her boyfriend and former New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez would be working to get support as well.

“Alex Rodriguez and I, who are both New Yorkers, are using all our resources and relationships in entertainment, sports and business to garner support for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean,” she said.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lopez and her ex-husband, musician Marc Anthony, will also work to get aid to as many in the Caribbean and Mexico as possible, reaching out to more than 30 artists and athletes.

In a tweet Monday, Anthony had more pointed words than Rodríguez as President Donald Trump continues to speak out against NFL protests.

“Mr. President shut the (expletive) up about NFL. Do something about our people in need in Puerto Rico,” he tweeted. “We are American citizens too,” he tweeted. 

On Sunday, Anthony, like Lopez, delivered a video message saying help is on the way to Puerto Rico and encouraging those affected to “stay strong.”

Lopez and Anthony have asked the public to donate to United for Puerto Rico, an initiative from Beatriz Rosselló, the first lady of Puerto Rico.

Lone Steelers player to stand for anthem now has NFL's best-selling jersey

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva made headlines Sunday afternoon when he was the only member of the Pittsburgh Steelers to stand on the field for the national anthem.

>> Read more trending news

Since that moment, the lineman now has the best-selling jersey in the NFL.

Villanueva, a former Army Ranger who earned a Bronze Star and served three tours in Afghanistan, was the only Steelers player who came outside the tunnel during the national anthem Sunday afternoon.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin previously said the team collectively decided not to be on the sideline during the song.

Pictures and video of the 29-year-old West Point graduate standing alone, with his hand on his heart, quickly spread across social media.

According to ESPN, a spokesman for Fanatics confirmed that over the past 24 hours, Villanueva's gear has been ordered more than that of any other NFL player.

Officials with Fanatics, which runs the NFL’s official online store, said the gear includes jerseys and name T-shirts.

The offensive lineman beat out four quarterbacks : Tom Brady, Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott and Aaron Rodgers -- for the top spot.

Villanueva jerseys are available in men’s and women’s sizes.

ESPN's Darren Rovell said this is the first time he can remember seeing an offensive lineman's jersey available in women's sizes.

“I was looking for 100 percent participation. We were (going to) be respectful of our football team,” Tomlin said after the game.

Nearly 200 NFL players didn’t stand for the national anthem during Week 3. Three teams -- the Steelers, Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks -- didn’t come to the sideline until after the playing of the anthem had finished.

“I just feel so strongly that the act of recognizing the flag is a salute to our country and all of the people that have sacrificed so that we can have the liberties we have," Jones said on a Dallas sports radio show in August. “I feel very strongly that everyone should save that moment for the recognition of the flag in a positive way, so I like the way the Cowboys do it.”

Cardi B makes history as ‘Bodak Yellow’ reaches No. 1 on Hot 100 chart

Rapper Cardi B, formerly of “Love & Hip Hop” fame, has made history Monday with her single “Bodak Yellow.”

The musician’s hit has made her the first female rapper in nearly 19 years to have the No. 1 record on the Billboard Hot 100 chart without any guest features. The song has dethroned Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do,” Rolling Stone reported.

Billboard reported that the song rose from No. 2 to No. 1 on the chart dated Oct. 7.

Cardi’s record is the first since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” debuted at the top of the November 1998 chart.

The publication reported that Cardi is the fifth female rapper overall to top the chart. Others include Lil Kim, who went No. 1 on “Lady Marmalade” with Christina Aguilera, Mya and Pink in 2001; Shawanna in 2003 with her feature on Ludacris’ song “Stand Up”, and Iggy Azalea’s 2014 No. 1 with “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX.

“I just want to say thank you everybody. Thank you for making this happen,” the rapper said in an Instagram video. “Thank you guys so much for everything!” 

Cardi also thanked other artists who have supported her.

Despite rumors of a feud between the two, fellow female MC Nicki Minaj congratulated Cardi on Twitter.

“Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement. Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it,” she tweeted.

Lil Kim and Missy Ellitot were among other rappers to send their congrats to Cardi:

NASA facility named after ‘Hidden Figures’ heroine, human computer Katherine Johnson

NASA has named a new research facility after pioneer Katherine Johnson, the trailblazing 99-year-old human computer whose incredible work as a NASA mathematician inspired the book and movie, “Hidden Figures.”

>> Read more trending news

The $23-million Katherine G. Johnson Computational Research Facility, or CRF, is located at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, and spans 37,000 square feet of server rooms and data centers.

There, scientists will have access to some of NASA’s most powerful computers as well as an office area in which researchers can do their work, NASA said on its website.

“You have been a trailblazer,” Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said to Johnson during the ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday. “When I think of Virginia and the history of what we’ve gone through … you’re at the top of that list.”

Johnson, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015, spent much of her career at Langley, calculating trajectories for America’s first spaceflights. She worked at the center from 1953 until she retired in 1986.

At the ceremony, after a speech from keynote speaker Margot Lee Shetterly, the “Hidden Figures” author who brought the work of Johnson and fellow human computers Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan into the spotlight, Johnson received four standing ovations and humbly said she had just been doing her job.

“I like the stars, and the stories we were telling, and it was a joy to contribute to the literature that was going to come out,” she said. “But little did I think it would go this far.”

Georgia man drove 1,000 miles to kill a Yale doctor he says fired him

After seven years of legal drama that led to Connecticut’s highest court twice, a Marietta, Georgia, man was sentenced to 32 years in prison Friday for murdering a Yale University doctor he claims had him unfairly fired years earlier.

>> Read more trending news

Lishan Wang, 51, opened fire on Dr. Vajindeer Toor and his pregnant wife outside their home in a New Haven suburb in 2010. The husband was killed, but the wife, Parneeta Sidhu, was unharmed.

In 2008, Toor worked at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center in New York City, where he and other doctors had confrontations with Wang that led to Wang’s firing, according to The Associated Press. Wang said the unfair firing destroyed his medical career and that Toor was to blame.

Wang represented himself in the case until 2015 when a judge ruled him incompetent to do so and assigned a public defender.

Wang had been facing murder charges, but New Haven’s head public defender Thomas Ullmann negotiated lesser charges of manslaughter, attempted assault and other gun crimes.

Ullmann told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday that Wang had moved to Marietta with his wife and family sometime after the 2008 firing.

He said Wang’s wife told police her husband “left the house and never returned one day.”

According to authorities, Wang drove the nearly 1,000 miles from Marietta to the New Haven area to kill Toor, who was working with the infectious-disease department of Yale-New Haven Hospital.

The Hartford Courant reported that Wang stared straight ahead and showed no emotion in the courtroom Friday.

“My husband was bleeding and I was frantically trying to save him, still hoping he would be OK,” Sidhu told the court, according to the newspaper. “I sat down and placed my husband's head on my lap and held him in my arms as he breathed his last breath in my arms in front of our 3-year-old son.”

Wang was arrested the same day of the shooting.

The Courant said police found in Wang’s van a photo of Toor and the man’s family along with documents that referred to two other people involved in Wang’s firing, about a thousand rounds of ammunition, a wig, a hammer and a knife.

The case took seven years to resolve because it brought forward many legal pecularities.

The first trip to the state Supreme Court was over who pays for legal expenses if a prisoner represents himself, which Wang did, the Courant reported. The second was whether a judge can order a prisoner to be forcibly medicated in order to make them competent to stand trial.

Wang has been under a judge’s order to be forcibly medicated against his will to treat his mental illness.

His attorneys said Wang has delusional disorder and paranoia.

On Friday, Judge Patrick J. Clifford disagreed with Wang when he compared his loss with that of Toor’s family, according to the newspaper.

“The hell that this family has gone through and why? Because you’re a revengeful and disturbed person,” Clifford said.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. quotes JFK in response to NASCAR’s ‘take a knee’ stance

Despite many of NASCAR’s team owners and executives saying they disprove of anthem protests, one of the sport’s most prominent and popular drivers is supporting the right to protest.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. tweeted in support with athletes who, by kneeling, sitting or in another form, have protested during the national anthem before games in support of social and racial equality.

>> Read more trending news

“All Americans R granted rights 2 peaceful protests. Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable-JFK,” he tweeted Monday.

Earnhardt’s tweet came after President Donald Trump tweeted praise for there being no protests during the national anthem at the ISM Connect 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Sunday.

The Associated Press reported that a number of NASCAR’s team owners and leaders spoke out against protesting.

“Anybody that don’t stand up for the anthem oughta be out of the country. Period,” Hall of Fame driver Richard Petty said. “What got ’em where they’re at? The United States.”

Petty responded, “You’re right,” when asked if a team member protesting would get them fired.

Richard Childress, who was a long time team owner for Eardnhardt, said protesting isn’t respectful. 

“It’ll get you a ride on a Greyhound bus.”

“(A)nybody that works for me should respect the country we live in,” Childress said. “So many people gave their lives for it. This is America.”

NASCAR itself issued a statement Monday about the protests, saying, “Sports are a unifying influence in our society, bringing people of differing backgrounds and beliefs together. Our respect for the national anthem has always been a hallmark of our pre-race events. Thanks to the sacrifices of many, we live in a country of unparalleled freedoms and countless liberties, including the right to peacefully express one’s opinion.”

Villanueva regrets being the lone Steelers player to stand for the national anthem

Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva apologized to his teammates and the franchise Monday for standing alone during the national anthem before Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.

>> Read more trending news

He said he only told team leadership about his plan to leave the tunnel for the national anthem just before the game. 

Earlier Monday, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said the team agreed in a players-only meeting late Saturday night that the team would stay in the tunnel for the anthem as a show of team unity.

Villanueva, a retired Army Ranger and veteran of combat in Afghanistan, said he received numerous texts from other veterans before the game imploring him to salute the anthem. He also noted the game was played at Chicago's Soldier Field, which is named to honor military veterans.

Villanueva confirmed statements made by Roethlisberger and defensive lineman Cam Heyward earlier in the day that they wanted to stand with him to support him but they were blocked by people going through the tunnel until the anthem began.

He said he had no doubt that if his teammates had known his intentions, they all would have stood with him, even those who were inclined to kneel or sit during the anthem.

"When everyone sees an image of me by myself, everybody thinks the team and the Steelers are not behind me, and that's absolutely wrong," he said. "It's quite the opposite."

Villanueva apologized to his teammates, head coach Mike Tomlin and the franchise, saying he felt "embarrassed" by photos showing him standing alone and appearing to break the image of unity the team wanted to project.

Girl gets pet hamster after her letter to Petco ends up at power company Pepco

It’s not often you get your pet from an electric company, but that was the case for an 8-year-old girl in Washington, D.C.

>> Read more trending news 

Serenity Williams wrote a letter, meant to be sent to Petco, asking for a pet hamster, but an accident landed it in front of a customer care worker for the electric power company PepcoWJLA reported.

According to WTTG, Serenity addressed her letter to “Petco” but accidentally used the Pepco headquarters address.

This is what Serenity wrote:

“Dear Petco pets, 

I'm Serenity. I'm 8 years old. I live in Washington D.C. I'm going to 2nd grade. May I please have a hamester because I never had a pet. I (love) hamesters because they eat carrots, and grass. I will take good care of it because I'll let it eat. I will make sure I clean the cage. If I (receive) a hamster, I will do better in school, make more friends, and become responsible."

Cornell Reddon, with fellow customer care worker Clay Anderson, called Serenity’s mother to make sure it was OK if he bought the girl a hamster. When she said yes, he went to Petco and bought the animal, WJLA reported.

Serenity was presented with her new pet on Friday, and she decided to name the hamster “Brick.”

Pepco also provided Serenity with a hamster cage and supplies.

Ivanka Trump used personal email for government business, watchdog group says

A watchdog group said Monday that emails released to the organization show that President Donald Trump’s daughter and senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump used a personal email address to conduct White House business as recently as March, although a White House spokesperson said that the first daughter did not have a government email account when the correspondence was sent.

>> Read more trending news

The discovery by watchdog group American Oversight came one day after Ivanka Trump’s husband, Jared Kushner, said through a statement by his attorney that he used a private email address to conduct government business.

>> Related: Jared Kushner used personal email to conduct White House business, lawyer says

The emails from Ivanka Trump to Linda McMahon, administrator of the United States Small Business Administration, were sent in February, according to copies of the correspondence released by American Oversight. At the time, Ivanka Trump was not a federal employee but was “operating inside the White House in a nonofficial capacity,” Newsweek reported.

In a statement obtained by Newsweek, a White House spokesperson said that Ivanka Trump became a federal employee in March.

“She made clear that one of her reasons for doing so was to ensure that she would have access to government-issued communications devices and receive an official email account to protect government records,” the spokesperson said, adding that at the time of the communications, Ivanka Trump did not have an official email account.

Austin Evers, executive director of American Oversight, however, said that the situation shows “yet again … that there’s one rule for the Trump family and another for everyone else.”

“It’s simply breathtaking that both Ivanka and Jared Kushner would conduct government (business) on a personal email account after running a campaign centered on that very issue,” Evers said. “The fact that they would brazenly ignore rules governing email use raises even more questions about their judgment and fitness to hold positions in the White House.”

The Hill reported that the emails from Ivanka Trump showed that she copied her chief of staff, Julie Radford, on the emails, and that Radford had a White House email address.

Donald Trump criticized former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sharply last year for her use of private email, leading supporters on chants of “Lock her up” and insisting that her actions were illegal as the two vied for a seat in the Oval Office. The FBI determined last year that Clinton did not break the law, although then-FBI Director James Comey said that she and her colleagues were "extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

John McCain reveals increasingly worrisome health prognosis

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) offered insight into his struggle with an aggressive brain cancer diagnosis Sunday night on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” saying doctors have not given him a good prognosis.

One estimate puts his chance of survival in the single-digit percentile, he said.

“It’s very, very serious ... Some say 3 percent, some say 14 percent,” he said. “You know, it’s ... it’s a very poor prognosis.”

McCain, 81, said that despite the grim news, he was happy to have lived a wonderful life.

A former naval aviator shot down over North Vietnam in 1967 and held as a prisoner of war until 1973, McCain said he wants to be remembered for his service to his country and he wants his memorial service to be held in Annapolis, Maryland, at his alma mater, the U.S. Naval Academy.

Though his health may be failing, McCain remains dedicated to service and America, he said, especially in the current political climate, where he has become a dissenting Republican voice on health care. Fixing health care may ultimately mean McCain will have to work with President Donald Trump, though the two have repeatedly clashed, the senator acknowledged.

“I’d be glad to converse with him. But I also understand that we’re very different people. Different upbringing. Different life experiences,” McCain told CBS. “He is in the business of making money ... I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honor, country is the lodestar for the behavior that we have to exhibit every single day.”

Florida woman pulls gun, uses racial slur in road rage incident

Florida authorities have charged a 22-year-old woman in a road rage incident earlier this month.

According to the report, Huffman admitted to the road rage incident but gave no reason for singling out the woman.

Another driver who witnessed the incident called 911 and followed Huffman to her house to get her tag number.

When deputies arrived at the home, Huffman let deputies search her vehicle. Inside, they found an unloaded 9 mm pistol under the passenger seat, according to the report.

6 ways you might be disrespecting the flag without even knowing it

How and when the U.S. flag and national anthem should be publicly respected and honored has become the matter of much debate and consternation, but what does the law say?

>> Read more trending news

It’s actually easier than you think to disrespect the Star-Spangled Banner, at least according the sometimes-obscure U.S. Flag Code.

The rules went into effect on the very first Flag Day — June 14, 1923 — but fell out of the spotlight until recently. Title 36, Chapter 10 of the United States Code, listed as “Patriotic Customs,” is quite specific and straightforward when it comes to what you should and should not do with the flag and during the national anthem, including what “respecting the flag” entails.

Most Americans know by heart at least a few of the 11 “respect for the flag” rules listed under Section 176. Never letting the flag touch the ground or water and only displaying the stars and stripes upside-down as a serious distress signal qualify as fairly common knowledge. But who knew about the part of the law that says the flag should never be used to cover the ceiling?

Here are some common ways the flag is disrespected every day, according to the federal code:

1.

“The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery.” So that’s going to be a no to American flag bikinis, bedspreads and curtains.

2.

“The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever.” The law is the law, even for iconic American brands.

3.

“It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard.” Fourth of July picnics can be just as delicious without the star-spangled napkins and paper plates.

4.

“No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.” It would seem even well-intended patriotism can put sports teams on the wrong side of the law.

5.

“It is the universal custom to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open. However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed 24 hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness. The flag should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement, except when an all-weather flag is displayed.”

6.

Incidentally, the law is also pretty straightforward when it comes to what’s expected of Americans when the national anthem is played, given that the anthem is typically accompanied by a display of the flag. If the flag is being displayed, “all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart,” and those not in uniform should remove their hats, holding them at the left shoulder, which would put your hand over your heart. Those in uniform salute the flag for the entire song. If there’s no flag on display, everyone is supposed to face wherever the music is coming from and conduct themselves as if the flag is on display there. Kneeling, sitting or otherwise sitting out the anthem is not addressed in the law as illegal or otherwise.

Netflix email scam targeting bank account info, reports say

A new email scam is targeting Netflix users in order to obtain access to their bank account info, according to multiple reports.

The Guardian reported that, according to a reader letter to its consumer division, an email that appears to be from Netflix warns users that their Netflix accounts are on hold.

“A link in the email takes users to a fake Netflix page, where you are invited to input your bank details. It is realistic and will no doubt catch out a few people whose bank card has just expired,” a user said in a Tuesday letter to the publication.

WGN also reported about the phishing scam stateside, saying that customers are told that their payment details need to be updated because of a billing error, the Monday report said.

The email may ask for updated bank information to be emailed, and in other cases, it may link to a fake website requesting bank information.

similar scam was reported in January.

Like any phishing scam, consumers are warned not to click on any links in the email.

According to the Netflix help center website, the company will never ask for personal information to be sent over email, including credit and debit card numbers and passwords.

“Netflix may email you to update this information with a link to our website, but be cautious of fake emails that may link to phishing websites. If you’re unsure about a link in an email, you can always hover your cursor over the link to see where it directs in which you can see the real linked web address at the bottom of most browsers,” the website reads.
