Leeza Gibbons’ foundation house damaged in S. Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A South Carolina home used by Leeza Gibbons’ foundation to help people taking care of loved ones with Alzheimer’s Disease and other chronic illnesses has been damaged by a severe storm.

Linkin Park beats expectations with 6th chart-topping album

Reviews of “One More Light,” the latest album by Linkin Park, were not so much negative as they were incredulous about the onetime rap-metal stars’ continuing embrace of electronic pop. This version of the band, the blog Consequence of Sound wrote, is “entirely unrecognizable.”

But it was recognizable enough to the band’s fans to send the album to No. 1, making “One More Light” Linkin Park’s sixth release to top the Billboard chart. It sold about 100,000 copies as a full album and had 13.9 million streams in the United States, according to Nielsen — a better showing than had been expected.
