PPL Corporation (PPL) gains from strong performance of its domestic operations, but lower sales volumes impact its U.K. regulated operations.
CNN's FOIA of Broward County 911 records has produced a steady stream of scoops about Parkland, Fla. school shooter Nikolas Cruz fleshing out much of what is publicly known about Cruz's background and the various reports made warning the FBI and other authorities about his threatening behavior. The report draws on one specific incident that unfolded in the immediate aftermath of Cruz's mother's death, when Cruz and his brother Zachary Cruz were living in Palm Beach County with Rocxanne Deschamps, a former neighbor who had been close to the family. After one particularly violent outburst, Cruz said he was going to Dick's to pick up the AR-15 he had recently paid for, and that he would come back to attack her. The police were warned by Deschamps, who told them about Cruz's violent past - that he'd "used a gun against people before" and had "put the gun to others' heads in the past" - but still they did nothing. Cruz and his brother only lived with Deschamps for a few weeks before Nikolas was taken in by the Sneads, but Zachary - who reportedly suffered a breakdown following the shooting - stayed with Deschamps. Cruz had been staying with the Sneads, the parents of a friend, at the time of the massacre, deceiving them by claiming he didn't have a key to the gun safe where his AR-15 was kept in accordance with house rules. As CNN reported earlier this week, Cruz had purchased 10 rifles in the year before his killing spree. On the day after Thanksgiving, Cruz was at work at a Dollar Tree store. Rocxanne Deschamps' son, Rock, 22, called 911 to report that an "adopted 19-year-old son" had possibly hidden a "gun in the backyard," according to a dispatcher's notes. Rock Deschamps told law enforcement "there were no weapons allowed in the household," the report said. It's unclear from the record whether sheriff's deputies conducted a search. The incident was classified as "domestic unfounded," which means a deputy didn't find proof to back up the claims. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office was called again to the home four days later, when Rock said Cruz lashed out against the family that took him in, according to the Palm Beach deputy's report and dispatcher notes. The deputy went to a local park and found Cruz, who explained that he had misplaced a photo of his recently deceased mother and, emotionally distraught, began punching the wall. Cruz lost control the same way he had several times in the past at his mother's home in Parkland, Florida, when he had not taken his prescribed mood-altering medication, as CNN has previously reported based on Broward police documents. Rock interrupted Cruz and a fight broke out between them, according to the documents. Cruz left the home, and Rocxanne Deschamps called 911. She warned the police dispatcher that Cruz said "he was going to get his gun and come back," records show. She said Cruz had "bought a gun from Dick's last week and is now going to pick it up." Rocxanne Deschamps told the dispatcher that Cruz had "bought tons of ammo" and "has used a gun against ppl before," the notes said. "He has put the gun to others heads in the past." The Palm Beach sheriff's deputy who responded to the scene of the assault spoke to both young men, who "hugged and reconcile(d) their differences." Cruz "said he was sorry for losing his temper," the deputy wrote in his report. Rock Deschamps told the deputy that Cruz had been suffering significantly from the loss of his mother and that he didn't want him to go to jail, only to leave the house until he calmed down. He signed a form saying he refused to prosecute. But perhaps the most chilling details of the report come at the very end, when a friend of the Cruz brothers describes Nikolas's anger at the fact that almost nobody had shown up for his adopted mother's funeral. Cruz left Rocxanne Deschamps' home for good a short time later, according to her ex-fiancé Paul Gold, who was also a longtime former neighbor. While his younger brother Zachary remained at that home, Nik Cruz returned to Broward County to live with a friend, and stayed at the Pompano Beach home of James and Kimberly Snead. He took his guns with him, the Sneads said. Gold, who lived next door to the Cruz family in Parkland for years, told CNN that he drove Nik Cruz to his mother's funeral. The only people in attendance were the two sons, Gold, and Rocxanne Deschamps, he said. "The boy was stoic. Not a tear. Not an emotion. I asked him if he was upset. He said: 'I'm upset because nobody came, and nobody cares about my mother,'" Gold recalled. "I told him that his mother was loved by many, many people and they just couldn't make it, timing and whatnot. It was a complete lie. But I felt horrible. Here's this poor kid, and his mother dies, and not a soul shows up," Gold said. Gold told CNN he knew nothing of Cruz's guns. He now describes the teen as "a monster." The next time Palm Beach deputies visited the Deschamps home was on February 14, in the frantic hours after the school shooting. A deputy rushed Rock and his family out of the home, clearing the way for a bomb squad to arrive, according to a report. The FBI have taken a lot of criticism, and many have demanded the resignation of FBI Director Christopher Wray, after it emerged that the bureau had received tips warning them about Cruz, but protocol wasn't followed and Cruz was never investigated.

Amid a brave new world of sexual consent forms and rage over the "patriarchy," Formula 1 and its FAI ruling body has decided to ban the use of promotional models, known as "grid girls," from its events because they don't "resonate with [the] brand values [of F1] and clearly is at odds with modern day societal norms." Whose societal norms? Has anyone checked out a college campus lately? Grid girlsCollege girlsInstead of Grid Girls, meet "Grid Kids!" Replacing the Grid Girls will be F1's new "Grid Kids" initiative - which is designed to entice younger fans to "get involved" in the racing sport - despite the fact that the program is only available to children who are already involved in a local motorsport club. “The joint initiative will involve the local Grand Prix promoter working alongside ASNs – the FIA-recognised national sporting authorities – who will provide a unique opportunity to youngsters and their families to be part of one of the most exclusive and exciting moments of the whole race weekend,” F1 said in a statement. Participants will be chosen by merit or lottery, and will be able to accompany the world's 20 best drivers at every Grand Prix - much to the chagrin of fans who were hoping to see scantily clad adult women at the events. Now unemployed Grid GirlsThe move by F1 follows a similar move by the Professional Darts Corporation banned walk-on girls from its competitions. Because dart competitions are just as fun without the girls. As Brutalist reports, the girls aren't taking this sitting down: Rebecca Cooper, a five time F1 grid girl, said on Twitter that it is "ridiculous that women who say they are 'fighting for women's rights' are saying what others should and shouldn't do, stopping us from doing a job we love and are proud to do. [It is] political correctness gone mad." Cooper also implied that grid girls have been misrepresented and put together a photograph collage to highlight that women who work in her trade are not "scantily clad furniture" and that the outfits are more modest. So the inevitable has happened, F1 gridgirls have been banned. Ridiculous that women who say they are "fighting for women's rights" are saying what others should and shouldn't do, stopping us from doing a job we love and are proud to do. PC gone mad 😡 #Gridgirls — Rebecca Cooper (@rebeccageldard) January 31, 2018 "Scantily clad furniture", "sexualising women", "provocative", "Id never let my daughter wear a grid girl outfit"... just some of today's comments, yet people clearly haven't dont their research as these are my outfits from my 5 years in F1 #gridgirl #gridgirls pic.twitter.com/etbcCPnCC1 — Rebecca Cooper (@rebeccageldard) January 31, 2018 So what do the people of twitter think? Should there be grid girls in F1? After a lot of debate on my profile over the past 24h I'd like to see what the actual general public think #gridgirl #gridgirls — Rebecca Cooper (@rebeccageldard) February 1, 2018 For Michelle Westby, working as a promotional model in motorsports led to a successful career as a stunt driver and a drift racing driver. Alot of people asking my view on the grid girl ban situation , well check out my page for my view https://t.co/F9CC1g23EI pic.twitter.com/6RRznAXBGE — michelle westby (@michellewestby) February 1, 2018 Westby elaborated over Facebook: If it wasn't for grid work / promotional modelling, I wouldn't be where I am now in a 'male dominated' sport and job as a stunt driver and drift competition driver, inspiring and influencing females into this 'intimidating male environment.' I get girls messaging me all the time saying how I inspire them and made them want to get into racing and drifting when they didn't think they would be accepted… What people don't realise, is that the girls have knowledge of the products and teams they are promotion — that's part of the job. We get a brief on the uniform but it's up to us if we feel comfortable in it. We are more clothed than what teenagers wear down the supermarkets. I'm now retired but to think girls have lost a lot of important income because feminists think they know best, when they really haven't got a clue, is frustrating. Fans and Grid Girls alike took to Twitter to denounce the decision, using the hashtag #Gridgirl Lots of smiles over the years,tell me again how this isn’t my choice! #gridgirl #demontweeks #icd #rolex #leyland pic.twitter.com/USrAa1KB8S — Samantha Young (@Sammie_jay25) January 31, 2018 Progressive feminists: ALLOW WOMEN TO ECPRESS THEMSELVES SEXUALLY. FREE THE NIPPLE. LET WOMEN BE SEXY ON TV. Also progressive feminists: grid girls should be banned cuz they are too sexy & they use that sexiness to market a male sport. No no no no no no.#gridgirl — Proxee • プロクシ ☁️ (@theproxee) February 2, 2018 "Girls Can Do Anything....". Except pursue a modelling career or make some money being a #GridGirl. Feminism. Hilarious! — MLo (@MLoParis) February 1, 2018 I was right all along. Modern #Feminism is not about #Equality it's about women telling other women what to do. If a woman wants to be a #GridGirl then that's her choice and nobody else's. — JustRoger 🇬🇧🇧🇧🇯🇲🇱🇨 (@Roger_Powell79) January 31, 2018 Come rain or shine we would be there waiting with our boards for our drivers to come round the bend 👍🏼 Why are 'idiots' taking our jobs away? #gridgirl #BTCC fed up of trying to defend myself, it's simple I LOVE my job get over it! #robbers #f1gridgirls pic.twitter.com/bElg8X3s44 — Sophie Hallson (@SophieHallson) January 31, 2018 I have never heard any feminist complain about outfits worn at the #NottingHillCarnival #gridgirl #f1gridgirls pic.twitter.com/Oy9KM1D1RQ — Simon Tuffen (@SimonTuffen) February 1, 2018 What annoys me is that ppl dont get the history of things and how it evolved. most ppl regard this image to be of a #gridgirl but this is the wife of Jarno Saarinen, Soili. pic.twitter.com/241vMlhF39 — tammy gorali (@tammygorali) January 31, 2018 Formula 1 begins its 2018 season on March 26.
