Hello everyone. Welcome to Sign1News. I’m Crystal Cousineau. Here are your top stories for today. Russian authorities have a man in custody
for the murder of Instagram star Yekaterina Semochkina. The social media star was best known for her
Instagram handle ‘Katti Love Life.” Multiple Russian news outlets report Semochkina’s
body was found in an apartment Saturday stuffed in a suitcase with stab wounds in her neck
and chest area. Moscow officials announced the arrest Wednesday
but have not identified the suspect nor have they released a motive for the murder. It’s not clear yet if the suspect and the
victim share any connections. Dog owners listen up! Don’t give your dog pig ear treats. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
and the FDA both issued a warning Wednesday saying consumers should avoid the treats. They are also advising retailers to stop selling
them. Public health officials have been investigating
a multistate outbreak of human salmonella infections connected to contact with pig ear
pet treats. And they’re not just worried about dogs. You could get sick too from just touching
the treats. Over the past month 127 people in 33 states
have gotten salmonella and dozens of them had to be hospitalized. So far there have been two voluntary recalls
after products tested positive for the bacteria. A new makeup is going viral and none of its
products cost more than five dollars. Video bloggers have generated buzz around
the “Believe Beauty” line of cosmetics. It’s a private label line of lipsticks, eyeshadows,
nail polishes and other beauty products that you can only get at Dollar General stores. Beauty bloggers are talking about the brand
on places like YouTube and Instagram. Those reviews have racked up hundreds of thousands
of views. All of that social media attention means free
advertising for Dollar General, it boosts the company’s image with younger shoppers
and helps lift the dollar store empire. Washington State residents who identify with
genders other than male or female will have another option to select on their state ID. People will be able to choose from male, female
or gender X. Governor Jay Inslee says the Department of
Licensing will hold a series of public meetings to get input. Officials say the gender X option could be
implemented as soon as October. The new option is also available on instruction
permits and state-issued identification cards. Other states that offer similar third gender
options on identification include New York, Washington DC, California, Maine and Oregon. According to the Federal Trade Commission,
safely securing your data online is a problem that’s getting worse. Earlier this week 100 million Capital One
customers in the US and 6 million in Canada were alerted to the news that their private
information may have been exposed due to a data breach. If you’re a Capital One customer concerned
that you may be affected, here’s what you should do: First check your email. The company notified its customers of the
data breach. They will offer free credit monitoring services
for those who were affected. Check your accounts. Look at your statements for suspicious activity. If you find something odd, you should freeze
your credit card. If you find suspicious activity, you should
also freeze your credit. This ensures that no one will try to take
a loan in your name. It also means that no one can access your
credit report. But if you apply for a loan, you will have
to unfreeze your credit. And once you get credit monitoring, you should
turn on the notifications so that all activity under your ID will be sent to your inbox. Two-year-old Cash Landers drowned in a pool
accident. And little Lola Bond was born with a faulty
heart. Last September Cash’s mother Brooke Eaton
made the decision to donate her son’s heart to save little Lola’s life. Last night, for the first time since the heart
transplant, the families met at University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. And Eaton was given the chance to hear her
son’s heart beating again in Lola’s chest. The reunion brought tears to everyone’s eyes
including the hospital staff. Eaton says she fell in love with Lola from
the moment she saw her and they will now have a special connection for the rest of their
lives. And those are your top stories for today. I’m Crystal Cousineau. Thank you for watching Sign1News. Remember to follow us on all of our social
