*Chelsea bomb suspect caught after shootout with cops:
A 28-year-old Afghani native wanted in connection with blasts in Manhattan and New Jersey that left 29 wounded has been caught after shooting at a police officer in New Jersey, according to a report. Ahmad Khan Rahami was arrested after firing at the cop in Linden. Rahami, whose fingerprint was found on an unexploded device, was hunted in connection with the explosions that sparked fears of a local terror cell, according to federal officials. Ahmad Khan Rahami was wounded in a shootout with police before his capture in Linden, New Jersey. Video showed the bloodied Rahami, his right shoulder bandaged, taken away in an ambulance in Linden, New Jersey. One officer was shot in the vest and one in the hand during the shootout, the mayor of Elizabeth, New Jersey, said. Investigators identified Rahami on Sunday afternoon using the cell phone on a pressure cooker device found in Manhattan and a fingerprint, a law enforcement official said.

*LBN-INVESTIGATES: For many, the art of seduction starts with dimming the lights. But a new study suggests that bright light may help men with flagging sex drives to shine in bed. Exposure to bright light – similar to daylight – boosts levels of the male hormone testosterone and can triple sexual satisfaction, the research found. Low sexual desire affects significant numbers of men after the age of 40. According to some studies, up to a quarter of men report problems depending on age and other factors. Because sexual interest varies with the seasons, scientists have suspected that it might be influenced by ambient light levels.
*LBN-R.I.P.: ***James Stacy, who played a gunslinging drifter on the television western “Lancer” and, after losing an arm and a leg in a 1973 motorcycle accident, turned in memorable performances in specialized roles, died on Sept. 9 in Ventura, Calif. He was 79. The cause was anaphylactic shock after having received antibiotics, said his fiancée, Antigoni Tsamparlis.
*LBN-COMMENTARY by Kevin Fallon: “The only thing we value more than diversity is congratulating ourselves on how much we value diversity.” And so Jimmy Kimmel opened the Emmy Awards, offering a tongue-in-cheek critique on how self-congratulatory the television industry has become for its well-timed rewarding of a diverse slate of performers and creators. Airing a little more than half a year after the Oscars, which famously embarrassed Hollywood while exposing our culture’s institutionalized racial biases, failed to nominate a single actor of color for the second year in a row, the Emmy Awards arrived Sunday night with a record number of diverse nominees.
*LBN-COMMENTARY By Zuhdi Jasser: Last weekend marked the fifteenth anniversary of the tragic attacks of 9/11/2001 – anattack that changed the course of the world forever. Since that horrific day, countries around the world – chiefly my country of the United States – have found themselves in what seems like an endless war against various protean forms of radical Islam, whether or not they want to name the enemy for what it is. While our conflict with radical Islam did not begin on 9/11 (the United States and much of the world had been plagued by radical Islam for many years before that day), there is no denying the history-changing ramifications of those attacks – both in terms of war and geopolitics as well as in the hearts and minds of individuals worldwide, who continue to be challenged by the question of Islamism, or political, radical Islam.
*LBN-CURRENTLY READING: Criminal Attorney, Vincent Imhoff (http://www.criminalattorney.com/) is currently reading: I am reading “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” by Fredrik Backman
(https://www.amazon.com/Grandmother-Asked-Tell-Shes-Sorry-ebook/dp/B00Q102M5Y). I just completed the first chapter. So far, the young girl is seven, “different” and her best friend is her storytelling Grandmother. As the book opens the Grandmother has passed away and the main character is explaining her idiosyncrasies as well as those of her Grandmother’s. It is a fun read. I am looking forward to the story developing and I am trying to imagine the stories the Grandmother told this young girl and how she interprets them. I am at that point of the novel where the young girl has her instructions, but has not made a move on them yet. I am eagerly awaiting the story’s unfolding.
*LBN-COMMENTARY by Paul Krugman: Does it make sense to vote for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for president? Sure, as long as you believe two things. First, you have to believe that it makes no difference at all whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump moves into the White House — because one of them will. Second, you have to believe that America will be better off in the long run if we eliminate environmental regulation, abolish the income tax, do away with public schools, and dismantle Social Security and Medicare — which is what the Libertarian platform calls for. But do 29 percent of Americans between 18 and 34 believe these things? I doubt it. Yet that, according to a recent Quinnipiac poll, is the share of millennial voters who say that they would vote for Mr. Johnson if the election took place now. And the preponderance of young Americans who say they’ll back Mr. Johnson or Jill Stein, the Green Party nominee, appear to be citizens who would support Mrs. Clinton in a two-way race; including the minor party candidates cuts her margin among young voters from 21 points to just 5.
