(AP) — An Algerian aviation official has confirmed the Air Algerie flight AH5017, which disappeared off radar over Mali in West Africa while carrying a total of 116 people on board, has crashed.

Authorities lost contact with the plane 50 minutes after take-off

At least 50 French nationals are thought to be among the passengers travelling on AH5017, which lost contact with aviation officials about 50 minutes after take-off from Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso in west Africa. It was bound for Algiers in Algeria.

The French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has said the plane “probably crashed”, but “despite intensive search efforts no trace of the aircraft has yet been found”.

Two French fighter jets based in Africa have been deployed and are attempting to locate the missing plane. The French civil aviation body has confirmed investigations into the missing plane are being led from Paris and Marseille.

The official Algerian news agency APS has published a list of passengers on board the plane, including 51 French, 27 Burkina Faso nationals, eight Lebanese, six Algerians, five Canadians, four Germans, two Luxemburg nationals, one Swiss, one Belgian, one Egyptian, one Ukrainian, one Nigerian, one Cameroonian and one Malian.

However, AFP has reported that at least 20 passengers are Lebanese.

It is not yet known how many casualties there are. Officials have not issued any further details.

The last contact Algerian authorities had with the aircraft was at 01.55am GMT when it was flying over Gao in Mali, an Algerian official said. A diplomat in the Malian capital of Bamako said that the north of the country was struck by a powerful sandstorm overnight.

The Burkina Faso Transport Minister Jean Bertin Ouedrago said the pilot had contacted Niger’s control tower and asked to change route at 01.38am because of a storm in the area.

The plane is operated by Air Algerie and chartered from Spanish airline Swiftair, who said 110 passengers and six members of crew are on board the MD83 aircraft. It can carry up to 167 people.

The company said in a statement that the passenger jet took off from Burkina Faso at 01.17am and was supposed to land in Algiers at 05.10am, but never reached its destination.

It said the six crew members include two pilots and four flight attendants.

The AFP news agency quoted an unnamed Air Algerie company source as saying that the plane was close to the Algerian frontier when it was asked to make a detour because of poor visibility and to prevent a possible collision with another plane on the Algiers-Bamako route.

Contact was lost after this change of course, according to the source.

Flight AH 5017 flies the Ouagadougou-Algiers route four times per week

Mali has been the site of unrest in recent years after it fell under control of ethnic Tuareg separatists and then al Qaida-linked Islamic extremists following a military coup in 2012.

However, a senior French official said it is unlikely that fighters in Mali had the kind of weaponry that could shoot down a plane.

Tony Dungy issues statement after saying he wouldn’t draft openly gay player Michael Sam

By Cain Cawthon

Follow us: @eotmonline on Twitter| eotm.media on Facebook

On Tuesday Michael Sam responded to Tony Dungy’s comment that he wouldn’t take the openly gay St. Louis Rams rookie in the draft because he would be a “distraction,” a comment that Dungy later clarified.



RELATED: NFL Draft 2014: Michael Sam going undrafted ‘would’ve been seen as homophobic,’ report

Sam, the first openly gay player the NFL has ever had said he was just glad that Dungy wasn’t the Rams coach.

Dungy’s statement in it’s entirety below.

On Monday afternoon while on vacation with my family, I was quite surprised to read excerpts from an interview I gave several weeks ago related to this year’s NFL Draft, and I feel compelled to clarify those remarks.

I was asked whether I would have drafted Michael Sam and I answered that I would not have drafted him.  I gave my honest answer, which is that I felt drafting him would bring much distraction to the team. At the time of my interview, the Oprah Winfrey reality show that was going to chronicle Michael’s first season had been announced.

I was not asked whether or not Michael Sam deserves an opportunity to play in the NFL.  He absolutely does.

I was not asked whether his sexual orientation should play a part in the evaluation process.  It should not.

I was not asked whether I would have a problem having Michael Sam on my team.  I would not.

I have been asked all of those questions several times in the last three months and have always answered them the same way—by saying that playing in the NFL is, and should be, about merit.

The best players make the team, and everyone should get the opportunity to prove whether they’re good enough to play.  That’s my opinion as a coach.  But those were not the questions I was asked.

What I was asked about was my philosophy of drafting, a philosophy that was developed over the years, which was to minimize distractions for my teams.

I do not believe Michael’s sexual orientation will be a distraction to his teammates or his organization.

I do, however, believe that the media attention that comes with it will be a distraction.  Unfortunately we are all seeing this play out now, and I feel badly that my remarks played a role in the distraction.

I wish Michael Sam nothing but the best in his quest to become a star in the NFL and I am confident he will get the opportunity to show what he can do on the field.

My sincere hope is that we will be able to focus on his play and not on his sexual orientation.

Mogul Tyler Perry Sued for Hemming & Hawing Government Officials to Open Studio

In Hollywood “Hotmess News” Tyler Perry is being sued by Ubiquitous, an entertainment company in Atlanta that claims it’s company has been planning its own “movie studio entertainment complex” on the Fort McPherson  Army post for years and the filmmaker blocked their plans to open a studio in the city.

Ubiquitous says its CEO met with the chairman of the government authority in December 2011 to share its vision of creating a movie studio and entertainment complex at the site. The company says Perry tried to persuade the authority to negotiate a similar deal with his company instead.

Ubiquitous has also named the U.S. Army and the government authority of Fort McPherson Military base as co-defendants in the suit.

Perry shoots many of his films and television shows at his Atlanta studio and is credited for making the city of Atlanta,  the “Hollywood of the South.” According to some media outlets, Perry’s productions brings “glitz and glamour” to the region.

According to the lawsuit, filed in federal court this week, the firm began meeting with the civilian authority overseeing Fort McPherson’s redevelopment about its plans as far back as 2011. UES wanted to buy 80 acres of the 488-acre post.

But purchasing the land was put on hold, according to the suit, because the civilian authority overseeing Fort McPherson redevelopment said it couldn’t negotiate an offer until it owned the property sometime in 2014.

Mayor Kasim Reed confirmed in June that the city has been in negotiations with Tyler Perry Studios to purchase a majority share of the property. Under the proposal, the filmmaker would buy much of the post from the McPherson Implementing Local Redevelopment Authority for $33 million.

Speaking to a city council committee Wednesday, Reed said the deal now calls for Perry to take control of 330 acres, the city to receive as much as 144 acres and for the Veterans Affairs hospital to have about 40 acres.

The lawsuit comes amid mixed reactions to the Perry proposal. At a Thursday meeting of the MILRA board, some residents asked for more information about the plan while others criticized how it came about. Local resident Stephen Knight questioned whether it was proper for Reed to strike a deal with Perry and then bring the proposal to MILRA for consideration.

“If the mayor can go out there to save face for himself and make a deal and bring it to this table and have you negotiate it, why can’t you let other people come and present it?” Knight said. “You might’ve gotten a better deal than with Mr. Perry.”

Others have previously praised the deal as a concrete opportunity to bring jobs and development to the post.

State. Sen. Vincent Fort, D-Atlanta, pleaded with the MILRA board that no matter what comes of Fort McPherson, the plan must involve the local community.

Fort also echoed repeated calls from members of the community for more information about the proposal. MILRA board members have said they can’t discuss the details because negotiations are ongoing.

“I would implore you to provide as much information about how this deal came to fruition, how it’s developing and how it’s working. You can do that without putting the deal at risk,” Fort said. “The community, I will tell you this, the community is skeptical about what is going on over here.”

Tyler Perry studios has declined EOTM Online’s request for comment.

Vin Diesel Opens Up About Working with Paul Walker’s Brothers on ‘Fast & Furious 7’

Vin Diesel recently sat down with Extra to discuss  “Fast & Furious 7” without his good friend Paul Walker, who died in a fiery car crash last year.

Screenshot - EXTRA -- Vin Diesel

Paul’s brother, Cory and Caleb, stepped in to help finish the film, and Diesel said the experience was “surreal.”

“On some levels it was very cool to know his brothers were supporting this and wanting to help. On another level, they triggered memories, unintentionally at times. There’s no one like Paul Walker and there was only one Paul Walker, and it is a very tricky task for an actor to both mourn and be in the process of that stage of mourning and also have to pretend that person is still there. It made the experience that much more arduous.”

Ebola Outbreak in West Africa has killed over 600, May Not Be As New As Thought

Follow us: @eotmonline on Twitter| eotm.media on Facebook

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has already killed 600 people. The outbreak occurred this spring, but a new study shows that the virus may have been affecting people in the region for years before the outbreak.

According to the study, there was a mysterious illness affecting people in West Africa years before the outbreak. The illness was likely the Ebola virus. Although blood was taken from most of the people treated for the illness, none of them were tested for Ebola.

Researchers are now testing the blood samples to see if they patients were indeed suffering from the Ebola virus. The test samples were over seven years old, but still potentially dangerous. Researcher had to heat treat them to help make them safe before they could be tested.

“It had been circulating there for a long time,” said Randal Schoepp of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. “It just hadn’t gotten out of control or the right conditions weren’t there.”

Researchers admitted that the tests are not 100% accurate, but they also believe that the outbreak did not just come out of nowhere. Viruses like Ebola travel from one host to the next and can be carried by animals like bats, monkeys and rodents.

“It makes us realize that you don’t have to see an outbreak (to know a virus is circulating in an area),” Schoepp said. “In Africa, it is easy for a disease to smolder because there is so much disease.”

While Ebola is common is some parts of Africa, it has never been seen before in West Africa. There are many other viruses that are common in the region, including Lassa Fever and Malaria.

Both of these diseases are nasty and can spread easily. Lassa Fever symptoms are very similar to Ebola symptoms, but the viruses are unrelated.

Researchers believe that many Ebola cases were misidentified as Lassa Fever before the outbreak.

Do you think the Ebola virus was infecting people in West Africa long before the 2014 outbreak?

This Week in Celebrity Break-Ups/Conscious Uncoupling: Ellen DeGeneres, Portia, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Sarah Jessica Parker..

This Week: Celebrity Divorces/Rumor Mill

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have made it to the top of our Celebrity Break-Up/Conscious Uncoupling headlines. As you may know, the rumor mill has run a muck with their alleged impending divorce.

Credit: Getty/EOTM Media

Surprised? I sure was, especially after hearing the allegations of Ellen cheating on Portia as well as stories about Portia turning to alcohol and horrendous allegations of drug use thrown into the mix, according to the Inquisitr. The latest report on the world’s most famous same-sex lesbian couple says the two are “trying extremely hard in an attempt to save the marriage”.

If you recall, the couple took the opportunity to slam the divorce rumors a few months ago, but this time, they’re staying quiet. Of course this is no confirmation, but many would beg to differ, specifically their ‘haters’.

Amidst it all a report from In Touch Weekly insist Portia’s admittance in rehab is in fact the smoking gun.

“Portia thinks that Ellen had an affair with one of their mutual friends”.

Lesbian.Gaydating - Date with Pride

Notably, sources close to the couple believe many of  their problems stem from the media,  who – according to some critics of the media – keep making more and more stuff up about them.

Now on to the most famous Couples ‘On The Run’.

Despite Jay Z and Beyoncé posting photos that display an unbreakable type of love, the rumor is abuzz with just the opposite.

According to a source with PageSix:

“They duo are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing . . . This is a huge concert tour and they’ve already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front,” the source said.

RELATED: Beyoncé Changes Lyrics in a Song About Cheating while on tour

The source also claims that this will be their last tour and the two have there very own marriage counselor on the ‘On The Run‘ tour. The source also noted that the most famous couple in hip hop have also tossed they’re wedding rings, which is a good guess that things are shaky.

Other signs something is awry, earlier in the tour Beyoncé changed a line in her song Resentment.

The diva took to the stage in Cincinnati, Ohio, on June 28, dressed in an all-white bridal-themed ensemble complete with a veil. The original lyrics are “Been ridin’ with you for six years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me” to “Been ridin’ with you for 12 years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me. She ain’t even half of me. That bitch will never be.”

When she uttered the number 12 instead of six, the crowd roared, presumably because Beyonce and Jay Z got together circa 2002. (fans love drama)

Could the power couple’s marriage really be coming to and end or is this simply a publicity stunt? I believe the latter.

Another bit of uncoupling news:

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, are allegedly on the brink of divorcing after repeated rumors that he cheated on her continued to surface.

The Sex and the City actress has been married to Broderick for 17 years, but over the last few months dogged speculation regarding his numerous infidelities with younger women have been reported. Broderick’s affairs have never actually been confirmed, and Parker has always stood by her man and trusted his denials.

However, the most recent cheating scandal has proven to be the final straw, and she is now believed to be preparing to divorce Broderick. You may remember a tweet back in April whereas Parker attacked a Twitter user named Sarah Symonds for reasons that are suspect.

Join our VIP List and Get 10% Off Coupon. Shop Celebrity Style at Boutique To You!The sad news comes after the pair traveled to Ireland in a bid to save their flailing marriage. Parker is believed to have booked the entire holiday, and she even took her husband to a vacation cottage in Donegal, Ireland, where the duo enjoyed a therapeutic and relaxing vacation in their four-room abode.

Evidently the holiday did not go as planned.The source told the National Enquirer, “ One evening they went into Nancy’s, a seafood restaurant, and hardly said a word to each other. It was pretty clear during the trip that Sarah and Matthew were having some pretty intense discussions.”Parker is also thought to have told friends that even though she is “constantly trying to keep the marriage fresh and fun,” the cheating allegations have made this much harder.
