A year ago, Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was killed by a car bomb.

Her murder is still unsolved, and her work was unfinished — until 45 journalists from across the world took up the investigations she started. For the past six months, a group called Forbidden Stories, which continues the work of journalists who have been killed or silenced, has been following Galizia’s leads.

It was a no-news-is-good-news kind of milestone: For the first time in at least 25 years, New York City just had a weekend with no shootings.

"A city of 8.6 million people — not a single shooting for three days," Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday, according to CNN. "Let's thank the NYPD for what they've achieved."

In the city's five boroughs, no shootings were reported from Friday to Sunday.

Dennis Hof, who used his celebrity as a brothel owner to launch a political career, was found dead Tuesday at the Love Ranch, one of several legal brothels he owned in Nevada.

Hof was best known for his reality TV show Cathouse that aired on HBO. But recently he stepped into the spotlight as an aspiring politician, vying for a seat in the state assembly. His primary victory over a three-term Republican in a rural district in Southern Nevada roiled local politics and made national headlines.

If you are an average commuter in Broward County, it takes you a little less than half an hour to get to work. Or it may take you almost an hour. The difference is how you get to work.
