Hello everyone. Welcome to Sign1News live. I’m Jethro Wooddall. Here are your top stories for today. Before we get to today’s top news stories,
I want to pause for a moment to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who has offered words
of support and encouragement to me as I begin my weight loss journey. A few weeks ago I made the decision to take
control of health, starting with my weight. I haven’t made any drastic changes. I still enjoy a big Jersey Mike’s sub every
now and then. But I did give up sodas, added more fruits
and vegetables to my diet and started walking. In less than a month, I have lost 22 pounds. My best friend is also virtually working out
with me in another state. We encourage and challenge each other to keep
going. It helps to have a fitness partner if you’re
considering beginning your own weight loss journey. But sometimes you have to dig deep inside
and muster up the strength to encourage yourself. Check out the vlog I posted yesterday. It’s a beautiful morning for a walk. It’s now day 12 and I’m up to 3 miles. 3 miles! I’m constantly challenging myself to keep
pushing, to keep going, more and more. Last week I walked 1 mile. Now week two, I’ve gone much farther. I’ve almost finished week two. I’m really proud of myself. And again I’m so inspired by your overwhelming
support and love. Thank you! Thank you. Police in Seattle want people to take a close
look at this image. It’s surveillance video of a gunman on the
run after opening fire at a light rail station inside the Westlake station Friday night. One person was killed and two others were
injured, all adult males. Authorities say the gunman took off on foot
after the shooting. Detectives are still investigating what led
to the shooting but they don’t believe the shooting was random. Witnesses say there was some kind of dispute
between the gunman and the three victims at the street level that continued down to the
train station. But the relationship between the gunman and
the victims is still unclear. The NYPD says seventy-six protesters were
arrested for blocking traffic in Manhattan Saturday afternoon. The demonstrators staged a sit-in at the Microsoft
store on Fifth Avenue. Organizers say they were demanding the tech
company stop letting US Immigration and Customs Enforcement use their technology. The NYPD says fifty women and twenty-six men
were arrested. Last month 100 people were arrested when the
same coalition held a protest against ICE on Manhattan’s Westside Highway. The protest temporarity closed roadways to
traffic. In June, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella wrote
an article on LinkedIn saying: “I want to be clear: Microsoft is not working with the
US government on any projects related to separating children from their families at the border.” She went on to explain that the only Microsoft
technology ICE is using is mail, calendar, messaging and document management. President Trump says Osama bin Laden’s son is
dead. The President issued a statement Saturday
confirming Hamza bin Laden was killed in a US counterterrorism operation. He didn’t specify exactly when or where, saying
only it happened in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region. CNN reported on July 31 Hamza bin Laden was
believed dead, citing a US official as a source. Some analysts are raising questions on the
presumed death, pointing out Al Qaeda has not released a eulogy on the young bin Laden. He was thought to be an emerging leader in
the terror group. The State Department believes Hamza bin Laden
was in his early 30s. Game of Thrones fans, rejoice! According to Deadline magazine, another “Game
of Thrones” prequel is coming. Deadline reported that author George RR Martin
is working on a project set roughly 300 years before the series. It would be all about what led to the fall
of house Targaryen, one of the major ruling families featured in Martin’s books and the
hugely popular HBO series, which ended its run in May. Martin says he’s basing it on his book “Fire
and Blood” HBO isn’t saying anything about the prequel
rumors by the cable network has already made another related pilot that takes place thousands
of years before Game of Thrones. Though they haven’t ordered a full series…just
yet. And those are your top stories for today. I’m Jethro Wooddall. Thank you for watching Sign1News live. Remember to follow us on all of our social media
