What We Know So Far

  • At least six people have died after an “unprecedented” fire ripped through a residential tower block in west London.
  • Twenty people are in critical condition. Seventy-four people have been treated and admitted to at six hospitals across the capital, the London Ambulance Service said.
  • The PM is “deeply saddened” by the “tragic” events. Sajid Javid, secretary of state for communities and local government, will chair an emergency Cobra meeting today.
  • The fire brigade was first called at shortly before 1am on Wednesday to Grenfell Tower in Latimer Road, north Kensington, London. Emergency responders were on the scene within six minutes.
  • Forty-five engines, 200 firefighters, and 100 medical personnel attended the scene, in addition to a number of police officers. Fire crews have reached the 20th floor, and a structural engineer, as well as urban search and rescue advisers, is monitoring the building.
  • Many residents are still missing. Witnesses said they saw people jumping from the building, and survivors have described how they managed to flee the building.
  • The cause of the fire is not clear.
  • The building, constructed in 1974, is 24 storeys tall and contains 120 homes, according to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
  • Residents’ groups had issued numerous warnings in the past few years about the tower block’s fire safety provisions. Read more here.
  • An emergency casualty bureau number has been set up on 0800 0961 233.

long after the dregs have gone, the slat remains, their presence permeating throughout the dilapidated building, secrets waiting to be discovered.

there are rickety old floors with cards fastened between the wooden slats, the queen of heart’s beady eyes tracking every movement. crimson gambling chips veiled in spider webs are gathered in the corner and deep impressions have been left in the drywall—the frame of broad shoulders, a cavity in the shape of a skull, a fist that missed its mark. mold crawls out of these gapings, blooming around the droplets of blood that have gone black and crusty.

wanted posters torn at its corners, ripped from someone else’s walls to be brought here, are bespeckled with holes across the faces, someone’s target practice.

up the sunken stairs there’s an office, small hills of ashes that used to be paper, a lingering stench exuding from the charred leather bound books that refused to melt. a rumpled handkerchief can be found, a crow and a cup embroidered into it. storage chests have been flipped over, matchsticks scattered across the floor, crooked lines carved by a sharp blade permanently etched into the desk—a secret, a memory, an honoring: rietveld.

but there’s also the unmistakable outline of footprints parting through coats of dust and small rings in the shape of the end of a cane. a daunting realization that someone else has been there recently.

The children who were victims of the Sandy Hook Massacre

(1) Caroline Previdi

Caroline Previdi was one of the 20 young children killed in the massacre that left the town of Newtown, Conn. grieving. 

(2) James Mattioli

James Mattioli, 6, was another one of the young victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Fondly called “J” for short, the energetic young boy loved math, sports and cuddling on the couch with his mom at the end of the day.

(3) Daniel Barden

Daniel Barden, 7, was another of the victims. His father Mark is a musician, and he and his family wrote the following words in memorial of their son: “Everyone who has ever met Daniel remembers and loves him. Words really cannot express what a special boy Daniel was. Such a light. Always smiling, unfailingly polite, incredibly affectionate, fair and so thoughtful towards others, imaginative in play, both intelligent and articulate in conversation: in all, a constant source of laughter and joy. Daniel was fearless in his pursuit of happiness and life. He earned his ripped jeans and missing two front teeth. Despite that, he was, as his mother said, ‘Just So Good.’ He embodied everything that is wholesome and innocent in the world. Our hearts break over losing him and for the many other families suffering loss.”

Six Sentence Sunday- 8/20/17

“Molly?” Sherlock questioned in confusion, lifting his head as he heard his bedroom door creak open and saw her petite outline tiptoe in.

“Electrical work at my flat, shove over,” she instructed softly, setting down a bag and climbing into the bed next to him. “You’re not the only one who can invade someone else’s bed in the middle of the night.”

After a minute of silence in the dark, Sherlock finally drew a slow breath and asked, “so, when I come over to your flat unannounced…is it always this sexy?”

Molly snorted out a dismissive laugh, but then she cleared her throat and whispered, a smile still on her lips.


anonymous asked:

I know you're not taking requests but just imagining Niall celebrating Valentines Day with his wife and little girl makes my heart melt😭

Can you do a Niall imagine where he goes to pick your daughter up from school and he talks to the other parents? It’s a bit weird I know 😂

A/N: I kinda combined these……Also I’m the worst bc this is Valentine’s fluff and technically it’s St. Patrick’s day.  

Valentine’s Day 

Originally posted by ninicutiepie

Niall just barely managed to slip inside the door to the elementary school while juggling his guitar case, a giant box of sweets, and three grocery bags of craft supplies.  He was eternally grateful you weren’t there to watch him flounder around.  The last thing he needed was a reminder that “You can always make more than one trip, Niall.”  Getting his bearings, he shuffled into the office to sign in.  As soon as he crossed the doorway all three secretaries just about lunged across their desks to greet him.  Niall always found it hilarious, if not a little flattering.  You had seen the staff react to him early on and decided to use it to you advantage, sending Niall in your stead whenever you needed a favor.  So far, your daughter Charlie had gotten the teacher you requested, and the bus stop moved to the bottom of your driveway.  You tried to shy away from using Niall’s fame to get special treatment, the only exception being your child.

“Mr. Horan, how may we help you today?”  The secretary was leaning across the desk, baring far too much cleavage for a woman her age and in a school setting.  Niall grinned and gave her a small wink.  

“Cynthia, please, call me Niall.”  He flashed a grin at her and she physically swooned at him.  

“Niall, what can I do for you today?”  Her voice was sickly sweet and he could see the other two secretaries nearly panting behind her.  

“M’here for the Valentine’s Day party.  Just need to pick up a visitor’s pass.”

Top image is of the corner of a room, featuring a large desk completely covered in random junk. The junk is, in turn, completely covered in dust, lint, pet hair, and Prefer Not To Identify. 

Bottom image is of the same corner, same desk, after 2 full weeks in which I did at least one 20/10 each day. Some days, I did six or eight 20/10s between other stuff. The wood gleams; the curtains are clean and almost nonexistent; the art on half the wall space has significantly changed, and what has NOT changed is now also clean and bright. 

A lot of the time spent on this “invisible corner” project involved going into another room entirely, cleaning parts of that room until I found something I needed for this project, and then applying. 

Also, I spent a day vacuuming, then shampooing the carpet.

Gone: eight extra-large garbage bags of stuff. Seven years’ worth of crud. Approximately 30 books in the donation pile. One entire trash bag full of old computer disks. One medium trash bag currently full of electronics to be recycled, with more to be added.

Still to be done: 

* acquire more CD-Rs, finish copying contents of floppy disks for later content examination. Finish formatting that computer, which served me well for many years, and then let it pass away; dismantle, put it and monitor in the car, and take to electronics recycling. Test speaker system, keyboard, and joystick to find out if they even work (or will work with my current laptop).

* go through house, find all my old laptop computers, and do similar things to them. I do not need to keep FIVE old laptops in case my current one suffers an Incident. I need ONE old laptop in case the current one fails. That’s it. 

* holy CATS! I wonder if this Palm PDA even turns on? 

* add under-desk shelf on left. Put charging station for phone+portable battery+headset. 

* gather and frame many small arts to hang up where big art used to be

* vacuum the a/c vents

Dirty Laundry

Request: Can I ask for Sidney Crosby ? where you guys got married have one lovely boy and everything going good till Sid accidentally cheat and you want to divorce (during that you also found out you will have baby girl) then you guys make up please ? Ps. I dont know how can you be so good at writing but im appreciate it😍💗

A/N: Ok, this didn’t turn out exactly as requested. (Ish) I won’t say much because I don’t want to give it away. But I think It works. Also, I love you guys. 

Word Count: 1401

Warnings: Pregnancy, cheating, probably curse words? (I really don’t know anymore)

Up Next: Jamie Benn (There’s three. Two requested and one was a request from my best friend…that one might be pushed back.)

You’d been together since you were 20. Six years later he proposed. Three wonderful years of marriage and a beautiful son later, he did this.

You didn’t know how he could do something so horrible. Not after 9 years of being together.  9 Years of making the distance work. The fans. The puck bunnies. Not once did he ever stray. And now? It’s like he just threw everything away.
