Hello everyone. Welcome to Sign1News live. I’m Jethro Wooddall. Here are your top stories for today. Today President Trump and First Lady Melania
Trump traveled to El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, the two cities devastated by mass shootings
over the weekend. Trump’s first stop was in Dayton where he
met privately with first responders, law enforcement members and some of the victims. He stayed in Dayton for about three hours
then boarded a plane to El Paso where he met once again with first responders, law enforcement
and victims and their families. Trump was greeted by supporters and protesters
in both cities. Officials hope discussions in both cities
will push the President to tackle gun safety, a heated issue entangled by politics. This next story is an example of how on edge people are these days as a result of the mass shootings. On Tuesday night a motorcycle backfired while
passing through Time Square in New York. People immediately thought they were in the
middle of a mass shooting incident and chaos ensued. Police say they received numerous 911 calls
during the chaos. People started running for their lives. Some pedestrians got injured in the stampede
but none are life-threatening. The NYPD quickly tried to bring calm to the
scene, tweeting that “motorcycles backfiring while passing through sound like gunshots.” Puerto Rico is still without a governor after
its Supreme Court ruling Wednesday. The court ruled that last week’s swearing-in
of Pedro Pierluisi was unconstitutional. Former governor Ricardo Rossello named Pierluisi
Secretary of State as he left office, handpicked by Rossello to be his successor. But court justices pointed out that Puerto
Rico’s legislature did not confirm his nomination. Rossello stepped down Friday after weeks of
protests over offensive group chat messages. It’s unclear what may happen next. Current Justice Secretary Wanda Vazquez Garced
may become governor. But Sunday she posted on Twitter she’s not
interested in the position. So you’re looking to lose some weight and
you’re making all the necessary changes to your diet and fitness routine, right? Well the time of day you hit the gym could
impact how much you lose. According to a new study in the International
Journal of Obesity, if you want to maximize your weight loss potential, head to the gym
before noon. In the study, 88 previously inactive, overweight
men and women were on a monitored fitness program. One group worked out in the morning, another
in the evening and a third group worked out at anytime of the day. Those who exercised in the morning ended up
losing more weight. But what if you are not a morning person or
you work early? Don’t let that discourage you. It’s the consistency that’s most important. If you’re working out every night or every
other night, you may not get the same weight loss results as the early morning workouts,
but you are going feel great doing it. This story is a serious reminder: Do not – and
we stress – do not leave children or animals inside a car when the temperatures are blazing
outside. Watch what happened when a New Mexico man,
who spotted an ailing dog in a hot car, took matters into his own hands. Is this your dog? The man said the dog was pawing at the windows,
trying to dig his way out of the car. He called 911 and says he waited for the dog’s
owner for as long as he could. He broke the car’s window, freed the dog and
later confronted its owner. The owner was reportedly cited for animal
cruelty by animal welfare officials. Police say it is legal in Albuquerque to break
a car window if a baby or animal is in distress. And those are your top stories for today. I’m Jethro Wooddall. Thank you for watching Sign1News. Remember to follow us on all of our social
