Carbon Monoxide Buildup in Garage Blamed for Death of 2 San Bernardino County Men

Carbon monoxide poisoning is apparently to blame for the deaths of two men who were running a generator in an unventilated garage, San Bernardino County Fire Department officials say. The incident occurred Jan. 22 near the California High Desert town of Lucerne Valley. A woman brought a 23-year-old male family member to firefighters at Fire Station 8 at approximately 10 a.m., but he had no pulse and was later pronounced dead at an Apple Valley hospital.

Popular NYC Eatery Once Owned by Justin Timberlake Closed Due to Floods of Sewage, Lawsuit Reveals

Destino was once a Midtown New York restaurant owned in part by Justin Timberlake and known for being a hangout for local celebrities. But it closed in 2013, allegedly due to flooding problems.

The restaurant closed for four months...

But Dior Haute Couture managed to do just that, when it revealed a major candidate for the reinvented ponytail at its recent Spring 2015 show -- and the look that Dior's models donned has the fashion world ablaze. According to Style.com, Dior stylists Raf Simons and Guido Palau used plastic rings painted with metallic finishes to connect models' natural hair with a long ponytail of hair extensions. “There’s a classic Diorness to it, but it’s futuristic and modern,” Palau explained. Palau told Style.com he first added some volume to the models' hair with mousse before pulling the strands back into a "sort of egg shape" at the crown. He then...
