The next Mega Millions drawing is scheduled for 11 p.m. Friday, and the next Powerball drawing is scheduled for the same time Saturday.

There was no lucky jackpot winner that could match all six numbers, including the Mega Ball, in Tuesday night’s drawing. According to USA Today, “There were some lucky lesser winners: One person in Florida won a $2 million Match 5 Winners Power Play and five people — in California, Florida, North Carolina, New York and Oregon — won $1 million each as Match 5 winners. According to Powerball’s website, there were more than 3 million players who won more than $30 million in smaller prizes Wednesday.”

If you feel lucky, there is no better time to get you a ticket for Friday night’s Powerball drawing and if you miss it then you can also play the same time Saturday.

The claims that UN Peacekeepers will come in and take over the United States have been promoted by sites like,, and What sparked this conversation to resurface was the announcement of a Facebook post by Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin.

Boykin also spoke with the Chicago Tribune and stated the following when questioned about welcoming in foreign troops from the United Nations

“I’m talking about whoever the U.N. would decide to send in,”

and also stated

 if the soldiers were instead wearing the sky blue helmets of United Nations peacekeepers there might not be such a problem

Although we have verified the above quotes, when fact checked using they returned a rating of this being a false report. It may be false that any plans have been made for UN troops to go into Chicago, but it is true that the Commissioner does not mind having them present. What are your thoughts, should the UN be allowed or petitioned to help with the crisis in Chicago?

White, a controversial reviewer who was kicked out of the New York Film Critics Circle, is known for provocative reviews and contrary opinions. He pointed to Get Out’s “‘post-racial’ ironies,” comparing it to Key and Peele’s “concocted unfunny routines deriding black paranoia and white superstition. Get Out shares that opportunistic misconception.”
