Meet Raheem, a Facebook Messenger chat bot who wants your help to keep tabs on police

At any time of day, no matter what happens between you and a police officer, Raheem wants to know about it. Raheem never sleeps. Raheem is a Facebook Messenger chat bot that will gather and map out interactions with police across the country; it just entered beta testing and is looking for a few thousand helping hands. Raheem’s creator, Brandon Anderson, eventually wants to use reports from thousands of users to build a people’s map of police behavior. Using Raheem is super easy.

Photograph taken by Ringo Starr of high school friends peering out of Chevrolet is reconstructed 50 years on as group is reunited.

Nearly fifty years may have passed, but the smiles and excitement remain the same between five Beatles fans who have been reunited to recreate a now- iconic shot taken by Ringo Starr five decades ago.  

The friends were photographed by the drummer after they skipped school to see the Fab Four during their first trip to the US in 1964.

But they had no idea the photo existed until a search began after Starr, 73, wrote in his new book, ‘Photograph’ how much he would like to know who the teenagers were in the Chevrolet Impala who he snapped with his personal camera when they drew up next to his limousine.

And now their teen dreams of Beatlemania are about to be revisited as next month Starr has invited them to Las Vegas, Nevada, to watch his concert and meet him after the show. [x]

Liam Payne’s Dad Led A Conga Line In The Crowd At One Direction’s Last Show

And then they played the end of ‘Act My Age’ about a hundred times.

SHEFFIELD, ENGLAND — On Saturday night (Oct. 31), One Direction threw a spook-tacular (get it?) end-of-tour party in Sheffield, England at their last On The Road Again stop of 2015. Fans were very emotional, and so were all eight dudes onstage — including the awesome 1D live band.

Of course, there were tears. But there were far, far more smiles from the moment Directioners began lining up outside the arena to the last fleeting seconds of grand finale “Drag Me Down.”

The best grins — you know, the shiniest — came from Harry, Louis, Niall and Liam when, near the end of “Act My Age,” Liam’s dad suddenly flew down the aisle near the runway with an entire conga line behind him. Yeah. It was strange and entirely unexpected and awesome.

That’s none other than Geoff Payne himself at the front of the dancing queue, wiggling his way right up to where the boys could see and, fittingly, lose their sh-t.

Liam was incredulous. “Honestly, I never thought I’d see the day my dad would lead the conga down the aisle,” he told the crowd. To commemorate such an occurrence, there was only one thing to do: repeat the cool little Irish jig part of “Act My Age” again and again to keep everyone jumping.

So that’s what they did. Several times.

You can watch the hilarious full video below and use it as a guide to assembling your own conga line next time you listen to Four — or even better, when Made In The A.M. drops on Nov. 13.
