Former NFL star Darren Sharper and his attorney Leonard Levine appear at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center in Los Angeles(Reuters) - Former NFL player Darren Sharper, accused of drugging and raping women in four states, was expected on Friday to change his not-guilty plea on related federal charges in New Orleans. Sharper, 39, already has pleaded guilty or no contest to rape or attempted rape in Arizona, California and Nevada as part of a series of plea agreements with prosecutors that call for his sentences to be served concurrently in federal prison. Court records indicate Sharper, a five-time Pro Bowl National Football League safety who helped lead the New Orleans Saints to a Super Bowl victory in 2010, will change his plea on charges that he drugged women in Louisiana and elsewhere with the intent to rape them.

Amy Gilmour a volunteer from San Antonio Texas walks past a pile of debris which included parts of destroyed homes that amassed when the Blanco River flooded during the Memorial Day weekend rains in Wimberley TexasBy Lisa Maria Garza DALLAS (Reuters) - Storms bringing as much as seven inches of rain drenched North Texas overnight into Friday, prompting hundreds of calls for emergency assistance and adding to the woes of the state where 18 people have been killed in severe weather this week. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for the Dallas area on Friday morning and a flash flood watch for an area stretching from central Texas into central Kansas. The seven inches (17.8 cm) in North Texas from Thursday morning into Friday comes after storms dumped seven inches on Austin on Monday and as much as 11 inches (28 cm) overnight on Monday in the Houston area.

This summer, nearly four years after those deaths in a Staten Island pool raised alarms about a little known hazard called shallow-water blackout or hypoxic blackout, New York City is putting up warning signs at all public pools prohibiting prolonged breath holding. It is part of a movement to raise awareness of the peril that has killed accomplished swimmers and to stop it by banning lengthy breath holding in the nation's estimated 300,000 public pools.
