Coroner: Cory Monteith died of heroin, alcohol overdose July 16, 2013, 4:51 PM EST VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — "Glee" actor Cory Monteith died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner's office said Tuesday. "There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith's death was anything other than a most tragic accident," the office said in a statement. The 31-year-old was found dead in his Vancouver, British Columbia, hotel room on Saturday, after he didn't check out on time. He was believed to be alone when he died. Bing: Cory Monteith on 'Inside the Actor's Studio' Police said Monteith had been out with people earlier, but video and electronic records from the hotel indicated he returned to his room by himself early Saturday. Monteith's death recalled the lives of Heath Ledger, Corey Haim and River Phoenix — actors who battled substance abuse and died in their 20s and 30s. Monteith had talked bluntly about struggling with addiction since he was a teenager, calling it a serious problem and telling Parade magazine in 2011 he was "lucky to be alive." Also: Paying tribute to Cory Monteith of 'Glee' Monteith admitted himself to a treatment facility in April for substance addiction, a representative said at the time. He also received treatment when he was 19. "Glee," with its catchy song-and-dance numbers and high-profile guest stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Britney Spears, became an instant hit when it debuted in 2009. Monteith served as the show's resident hunk with a heart of gold. The Fox network and the producers of "Glee," including 20th Century Fox Television, have called Monteith an exceptional performer "and an even more exceptional person." Photos: In Memoriam: Cory Monteith Gia Milani, who recently produced and directed a Canadian film featuring Monteith, this week said Monteith "seemed healthy" when she last saw him four weeks ago in Los Angeles. "He looked super fit and he was energetic and excited," Milani said. She said Monteith showed no signs of a substance abuse problem while shooting the film a year ago.

Teens Rescue Missing Girl, 5; Chase Down Abductor's Car on Bikes TOP NEWS JULY 16, 2013 BY: EFFIE ORFANIDES

A boy rescues a kidnapped girl while riding his bicycle in Pennsylvania. On July 15, Yahoo! Newsreported that 15-year-old Temar Boggs is being called a hero after he and a friend found the missing 5-year-old girl. Boggs and his friend joined the search for Jocelyn Rojas and when Boggs found her in a car, he and his friend, Chris Garcia, followed the car on their bikes. "As soon as the guy started noticing we were chasing him, he stopped at the end of the hill and let her out, and she ran to me and said that she needed her mom," Boggs told the media. The boy rescued the kidnapped girl and risked his life -- as did his friend. No one knew who kidnapped Jocelyn or if the kidnapper(s) had any weapons -- he could have easily began shooting at the teens and this happy story could have been a far different one to tell. The boys' bravery certainly paid off and little Jocelyn is home safe and sound. Police are still looking for the suspect and they hope they can find him and bring him to justice. "We’ve certainly all heard of worse stories with not-so-happy endings but this would be a much happier ending if we find the person responsible," said Manheim Township Police Sgt. Jeff Jones. The boy rescues kidnapped girl story is circulating the web today and it's nice to read about. Many times kidnapping stories doesn't end in a positive way. Hopefully the police catch this guy and this story goes full circle.

Cancer-stricken CoverGirl Talia

Talia Castellano, the inspiring cancer patient who became a YouTube beauty guru and honorary CoverGirl, died at 13 years old on Tuesday. Castellano, who found out she was named a CoverGirl on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” in October of 2012, “earned her wings” at 11:22 a.m. on Tuesday, according to a post on Angels for Talia, her official Facebook page. “Please lift her beautiful soul, her beautiful light to heaven and please send your love and prayers to her family during this most difficult time,’’ the post reads. “God speed little one, may you be free from pain and suffering, may your soul feel the light and love that you brought to so many of us on this Earth during the short time you were here with us. We will miss you more than you will ever know baby girl.” The CoverGirl portrait of Castellano revealed by Ellen went viral after her appearance last year. Her journey of living with cancer and becoming a CoverGirl deeply touched TODAY.com readers, who made her story the most “liked” post of the year on TODAY’s Facebook page with 897,746 likes. Her appearance also impacted Degeneres, who reacted to the news on Tuesday.

Castellano dies at 13 The Orlando teen found out in August of 2012 that her cancer had spread to her bone marrow, but she continued producing her beauty videos, previewing “dramatic smoky eyes” and reviewing “the best of Urban Decay.” On July 9, Castellano posted a bucket list on Facebook that included items like “dance in the rain,” “give flowers to a stranger,” and “have a huge pool party.” In October of last year, her dream of appearing on “The Ellen Degeneres Show’’ was realized, and Ellen surprised her with the CoverGirl announcement. She also sent Castellano to the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, where the teen was able to interview the likes of Gwen Stefani, Demi Lovato, Usher and Ryan Seacrest. “I met so many celebrities and had so much fun and I wouldn’t take it back for the world,” she said in a vlog posted on her YouTube channel on Oct. 11. Castellano had spent the last six months in the hospital with only a brief trip home, according to her Facebook page. Her story touched celebrities like Bruno Mars, who sent her a personalized message reading, “Your courage – inspiring. Your spirit – infectious. You – amazing! Just the way you are!!” Her fans and followers posted touching tributes to her on Facebook after learning of her death. “Crazy how someone you’ve never met can hold a special place in your heart,’’ Heather Mares Sledge wrote. “Many tears reading this. Fly high Talia.” “Tears were in my eyes when I found out the news,’’ Samantha Murphy wrote. “I really wish I could have met you. You were a true inspiration in my eyes and to everyone else. You were so full of life and so very beautiful.” Castellano stood strong in the face of cancer, even after receiving the news last August that her disease had spread. "The journey of having cancer has been amazing, but every journey has to have an end," she said in a video posted on Aug. 7, 2012.

if you think too much of what is coming you lose site for what is there. you must be fully aware of the moment to embrace what is yet to come.

11 WAYS YOU CAN HELP TO STOP BULLYING 1) Learn about the issue Media attention on bullying and cyberbullying is increasing rapidly. The more informed and better educated you are, the more effective you can be in impacting the problem. You can find links to articles on bullying prevention on our website or do a Google search of terms like “bullying”, “cyberbullying”, etc. 2) Walk the talk Children learn many social cues from adults, parents/caregivers, and their peers. By modeling empathy, tolerance and respect in your actions and communication, you impart these values, and influence the attitudes and behaviors of your children. 3) Talk with your children Often, if children are involved in bullying as either targets or aggressors, they are reluctant to talk about it. Ask your children about their social experience at school, especially if they seem withdrawn or are exhibiting unusual changes in their mood or behavior. 4) Monitor your child online Cyberbullying is the fastest growing type of peer-on-peer mistreatment today. It is important for parents to be able to monitor their children’s use of Facebook, MySpace and other social media sites, both at home and on mobile devices. 5) Understand your school’s policies Rules, procedures and policies regarding bullying vary greatly from district to district. Many states have enacted anti-bullying legislation, but implementation at the school site may be lacking. Speak with school officials and your school board about what policies they have in place and what programs they have implemented to address bullying and cyberbullying.

Protect yourself 6) Identify and build alliances in your community Local service clubs, PTA’s, local government and businesses can be a source of support and funding for bullying and cyberbullying prevention programs like Safe School Ambassadors. Working with the various stakeholders in your community is an effective way to build a coalition and create safer school climates. 7) Advocate for safer schools Write a letter to the editor of your local paper, attend or join your local PTA or school board, or start a community group dedicated to addressing bullying and cyberbullying at your local schools. 8) Join our “Waking Up Courage” Community Online Join us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter! Every week we share tools, inspiration and the latest news on waking up courage and the anti-bullying movement. 9) Sponsor a workshop Community Matters offers Parent Workshops that provide parents and guardians with an understanding of what bullying is today, the social, emotional and financial costs to students, parents and schools, and communication tips to effectively support children and teens. 10) Sponsor Safe School Ambassadors® (SSA) at a school Many schools have the desire to provide proven effective school climate improvement programs like Safe School Ambassadors®, but lack the funding to implement them. By sponsoring SSA at your local school or alma mater, you can create positive change by reducing bullying and cyberbullying, creating a climate of safety, inclusiveness and respect. Click here to learn how Spencer Sherman sponsored the SSA program at his alma mater, Bayside High School in New York. 11) Support Community Matters financially Community Matters welcomes donations of any amount to help provide its programs and services to schools in need

Groups sue to halt NSA electronic surveillance Martha MendozaThe Associated PressRights activists, church leaders and drug and gun rights advocates found common ground and filed a lawsuit against the federal government to halt a vast National Security Agency electronic surveillance program. In the lawsuit filed Tuesday, San Francisco's Electronic Frontier Foundation, representing the unusually broad coalition of plaintiffs, is seeking an injunction against the NSA, Justice Department, FBI and directors of the agencies. The suit filed in federal court in San Francisco challenges what the plaintiffs describe as an illegal and unconstitutional program of dragnet electronic surveillance. The suit comes after former NSA contractor Edward Snowden leaked details about NSA surveillance programs earlier this year. NSA public affairs deferred comment on the lawsuit to the Justice Department. A Justice Department spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Š 2013 The Associated Press.

NJ Mayor Accused of Threat After Mistaking Neighbor for FBI A New Jersey mayor is accused of threatening a federal agent on a public street after he mistakenly thought the agent -- who lived on his block -- was conducting surveillance on his home, days after the FBI had searched City Hall as part of a corruption investigation. Law enforcement sources tell NBC 4 New York that Union City Mayor Brian Stack thought two agents who had been parking their official vehicles near the mayor’s home along New York Avenue were watching him as part of the corruption investigation. Stack and two others allegedly charged one of the agents in the alleged Dec. 1 confrontation and began threatening him, officials and one witness told NBC 4 New York. But the federal agent was not an FBI agent and is not involved in the ongoing Union City corruption probe. Law enforcement officials said the federal agent works for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations -- Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He was parking on the mayor’s street because he lived on the block. A second agent who lost his home in Hurricane Sandy was parking on the street nearby and crashing on that fellow agent’s couch until he could find a new home, officials said. "The mayor's actions as an elected official were inexcusable," said New Jersey ICE Director Andrew McLees. “An HSI agent was confronted in an aggressive manner by the mayor. The agent felt threatened and appropriately reported the incident to law enforcement authorities." But Stack blamed the off-duty agent for approaching his girlfriend in a car without identifying himself. “What would any man do if their wife or their mother or their loved one is being detained in a vehicle, and the person won’t identify themselves and you see a bulge in their belt?” Stack said. Stack said he was the one who called police and rushed from a campaign event with two aides to help his girlfriend after she called him from her car concerned. “I would never threaten a federal agent,” Stack said. The feds said it was the agent who called Union City police – twice - as the mayor confronted him. Stack’s attorney said the mayor still believes federal agents were attempting to humiliate and threaten him at his own house by parking their cars with their law enforcement placards visible. "This guy was absolutely harassing the mayor. What kind of official business placard is on a windshield -- why -- other than to harass the mayor at his own home?” said attorney Dennis McAlvey.

New Twinkies aren't exactly the old Twinkies The Twinkie is back, but at what cost?

In the days leading up to Monday's nationwide relaunch of Hostess Brands' cream-filled sponge cakes, it became clear that this wasn't going to be the same Twinkies that disappeared during a brandkilling labor dispute in November. The workforce making them has been slashed, the cakes themselves are being shipped frozen in some instances, and now there's word that they might be smaller than their predecessors. Both CNNMoney and USAToday report that the 10 pack of Twinkies that weighed 15 ounces for much of 2012 and in earlier years now weighs 13.58 ounces. As was the case with the Twinkies pre-freezing plan, the new Hostess Brands ownership group of Pabst owners C. Dean Metropolous and private equity firm Apollo Global Management(APO -2.34%) -which bought the rights to Hostess Brands in March -- blamed Twinkies' downsizing on the failing company that came before them. The snack cake's original weight loss apparently took place just before the previous Hostess Brands went bankrupt in November. Boxes in stores at that time weighed 13.5 ounces, which makes the current boxes slightly heavier. However, considering the new parent companies are a budget beer brewer and a private equity firm, it should come as no surprise that each would try to squeeze as much sweet profit as possible out of their spongy new acquisition. Despite owning a brand that has shed its union presence and has fewer employees and factories than it did in November, the new owners saw little need to roll back the cost-cutting measures of their predecessors. As a result, folks who waited in line at Wal-Mart (WMT +0.44%) last weekend for the first bites of the revived snack cake got not the Twinkies of their youth but the Twinkies of a cash-strapped company on the brink.

The thinking is simple: The consumer outcry over Hostess' demise last year led Hostess' buyers to believe that consumers would embrace the cakes' return in any form. Since their previous owners' tweaks were designed to beef up the margins anyway, why not combine them with the reduced overhead of a downsized infrastructure and workforce and gorge on the profits?

By Victoria Uwumarogie If there’s anything I learned from watching Good Times, it’s that even when you think you’ve got it bad, you could have it worse–like the Evans family. I’m just saying, these people went through every bad thing you could think of in their housing project in Chicago (allegedly Cabrini-Green). From JJ getting shot, to James Evans dying and Penny getting abused and burned with an iron by her mother, “Good Times” gave it to you REAL. Realer than reality TV, and that’s probably why so many people adored the show, and almost 40 years after its first airing, still do. The show ran from 1974-1979, but if you were wondering what the cast is up to now (and not the 8 million people who guest starred), Esther Rolle Where would the Evans family have been without Florida? The matriarch of the family, she took no mess, but was always a supportive ear for her children’s issues. The widow was the backbone of her family, and she also had many memorable lines and moments on the show: *Drops bowl* “Damn, damn, damn DAMN!!!!” Once the show ended, Rolle released an album, The Garden of My Mind, did a little bit of psychic work (side eye), and appeared in a great deal of movies. That includes How to Make an America Quilt, Rosewood and Down in the Delta. Rolle passed away in 1998 due to complications from diabetes. She was 78.

John Amos James Evans, Sr was the hard-working father of the Evans clan. He did numerous jobs to keep a roof over his family’s head, and that’s probably why he, like Florida, didn’t take any mess from any of his kids (or anybody for that matter). He had a fiery temper, but also had a good sense of humor that made him lovable. Unfortunately, we know his character was killed in a car crash around the third season, so what was he doing after the fact? A lot! He did work on the “Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “All About the Andersons,” and appeared on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” He also did a lot of film work, including The Player’s Club, Coming to America, Die Hard 2, and is currently working on Madea’s Witness Protection. He is also the writer/producer of a a one-man show called, “Halley’s Comet.” -

Jimmie Walker It’s kid, “dyno-MITE!!!” The lanky character of J.J. was probably what made the show so popular, what with his great sense of humor and signature phrase. I was just always blown away by the fact that they tried to make him out to be a sex symbol with all the girlfriends he had on the show and all the young gals trying to get at him. It could circuit. be just me, but homeboy was far from that. On top of that, he always had a wise crack for his sister Thelma, and he was a gifted painter. While Walker was on top of the world during the show’s run (even starring alongside Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby in the film Let’s Do It Again), afterwards, the well dried up. He did Airplane, the TV shows “At Ease,” and “Bustin Loose,” and even did some guest appearances on “Everybody Hates Chris.” He’s currently doing work on the stand-up comedy Bern Nadette Stanis Miss Thelma Evans was the dream girl of many men in the country back when the show ran, and was highly sought after on the show. She was proposed to numerous times by numerous men, but only let the character Keith put a ring on it. After the show ended, the actress didn’t really show up all over the place like some of her other co-stars. She had small guest appearances on shows like “The Cosby Show,” “What’s Happening Now” and “Girlfriends.” But what has kept the checks coming in for her are the books she writes, including Situations 101: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly, and her poetry book, For Men Only.

Ralph Carter “But mama, BOY is a white racist word!” Oh Michael Evans, always militant, always entertaining. Michael was the very smart and very ambitious little brother in the Evans family, often involved in protests and getting in trouble for his big mouth. But did you know that the man who played him was a singer? He was a disco star back in the day and even put out an album called Get it Right in ’85. But as for acting? No dice. Instead, he writes plays, including his most recent work, “Grandma’s Hands.”

Johnny Brown Bookman was the bubble-butt having super in their building who used to go toe-to-toe with Willona. He was a hot, but funny mess. After the show ended in ’79, Brown went on to do voice work for “The Chipmunks,” appeared on “227,” “The Parkers,” and even had a small role in the movie Life. His most recent role was an appearance on the show, “Everybody Hates Chris.”

Ben Powers I wasn’t a big fan of the character of Keith. Sure, he was cute, but the minute he injured his knee he flipped on the whole Evans family. You remember the episode where he slapped Thelma, right? I almost jumped through the TV! But eventually, we know that he got rid of his drinking problem, sucked it up and got a temporary job, and was lucky enough to later get a new football contract and move Thelma out of the ‘hood. After the show, Powers did a little bit of TV work (“The New Mike Hammer,” and a TV movie called “Shattered Vows”), but he left LA in the ’80s and retired from acting, and is allegedly living in Rhode Island. He’s MIA, so no up-to-date photos.

Moses Gunn Mr. Gunn’s character of Carl Dixon is important to highlight because even though he only was in a few episodes, he played a pivotal role: he was Florida’s atheist husband near the end of the show. His character was diagnosed with cancer and because of it, tries to call of their engagement. But in the end, he pulls it together, and the two move to Arizona together. In real life, Moses Gunn was an award-winning stage actor, but after the show ended, he stuck to doing a lot of big TV work. He was on “Little House on the Prairie,” “Father Murphy,” “A Man Called Hawk,” and the TV movie, “House of Dies Drear” (love that movie!). His last real role was on the show, “Homicide: Life on the Street.” Gunn passed away in ’93 after having complications due to his asthma. He was 64. Chip Fields-Hurd Talk about putting the “cra” in crazy. As Mrs. Lynetta Gordon, Chip Fields-Hurd was the abusive mother of Penny. Though Willona begged her to seek help, after Gordon’s abuse was brought to light, she left her daughter behind, but acknowledged that her daughter deserved better before leaving. She tried to return a year later as the wife of a wealthy man, and in an effort to get her daughter back from Willona, Gordon framed her as being a bad parent. But alas, that didn’t work. In real life, we know that she’s a good mother, and the mother of actresses Kim and Alexis Fields. She’s been all over TV, including acting on “The Parkers,” “The Wayans Bros.” and “Living Single” as Regine’s (again, Kim Fields) mom. But she also is a director, and has directed episodes of “House of Payne,” “Meet the Browns,” “Hannah Montana,” “Just Jordan,” and “One on One.”

7 tips guaranteed to These pieces of advice can be worked on individually, however, for the most bang for your buck, incorporate them simultaneously and your dating life will absolutely improve. By Paul Carrick Brunson, the Modern Day Match Maker

What's most interesting is that in nearly every interview I do, the questioning pattern is the same -- literally, I get the same questions. And, they typically end with the following: "What one bit of dating advice would you like to share?" I actually HATE this question because dating advice is like having rice-n-peas... it shouldn't come alone. Ricen-peas requires jerk chicken, plantains, and coco bread... otherwise, as my grandmother would say, "It's simply not proper, mon." Today I'm going to go beyond that one question and give you my 7 top dating tips. They can be done individually, however, for the most bang for your buck, incorporate them simultaneously and I guarantee your dating life will improve. I know that used in this context the word "guarantee" sounds used car salesman-like, but there is no better word to describe it -- if you follow these 7 tips, I GUARANTEE your dating life will improve.

improve your dating life Tip #1: Hold up a mirror and point your finger The hardest thing to do is self-assess and accept responsibility. Tip #2: Identify a love mentor This is a person who can objectively give you relationship advice. Securing a Love Mentor can be the single most impactful step you make in your romantic life, if done correctly! Tip #3: Surround yourself with new people As we get older, our social circles typically shrink. With friends still being a top source for meeting the partners we eventually marry, a shrinking pool of people doesn't help. Tip #4: Drop 10% of your friends This is something I learned years ago ‌ and apologies to my old friends reading this that I no longer talk to. Tip #5: If they aren't marriage material, they aren't sex material I can't tell you how many people tell me, "I slept with this person because I think they really care for me." WHAAAAT? That's your standard for sex? Tip #6: Expect for love to come in unexpected packages I remember being in a room with the top 250 matchmakers from around the world, most of them had been in the profession for over 15 years, working with 50-100 clients per year. Tip #7: Create a plan and follow it What's most fascinating with what I call my "corporate power" clients is that while they can micro-manage their way through the minefields of the top businesses in the country, they use no planning in their dating life.

Every day gets a little worse': Hot turns to hellish By Jeff Black and Henry Austin, NBC News The stifling heat wave in the East stretched New York’s emergency crews, triggered power outage and made for potentially dangerous overnight temperatures -- and the worst may be to come. Temperatures Tuesday hit the mid-90s for another day across the Eastern U.S., and when combined with high humidity it felt a lot more like 100-plus degrees. But the spiking mercury wasn't limited to the Atlantic coast: in all, 43 out of 50 states were near record highs. New York emergency crews were dealing with a 20 percent increase in emergency calls because of the heat, NBCNewYork.com reported. An 18-year-old city council intern who fainted during an outdoor press conference on trash management had to wait 30 minutes to receive treatment. Fire department officials blamed the delay on the uptick in heat-related 911 calls. Other New Yorkers reported scattered power outages as air-conditioners were cranked up. Con Edison said it had put crews on standby for the duration of the heat wave. In Philadelphia, high temperatures spiked into the 90s for a third straight day to make the area's steamy stretch an official heat wave according to the National Weather Service. NBC10's Chief Meteorologist Glenn Schwartz points out that overnight lows, which were in the 80s, pose the most danger since older brick buildings without air conditioning aren't able to cool and dangerous heat continues to build up, which could lead to heat-related illness, and possibly death. Philadelphia health officials set up a “heatline” for elderly residents to receive help during the scorcher. Still, with almost the entire country covered in red on the weather map — the Pacific Northwest and Mountain states were baking, too — forecasters warn that the East wouldn’t get a break until Friday or Saturday. “Every day gets a little worse," Tony Gigi at the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, N.J.,told Philadelphia Inquirer. "It gets worse on Friday. Saturday looks miserable."

Stevie Wonder boycotts Florida after George Zimmerman trial verdict BY MARGARET EBY / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS TUESDAY, JULY 16, 2013, 12:08 PM

Stevie Wonder announced that he would no longer play concerts in Florida after the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. Stevie Wonder is speaking out after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the Trayvon Martin case last week. The beloved soul singer announced during a concert in Quebec City that he would be boycotting Florida until the controversial Stand Your Ground Law is revoked. "I decided today that until the Stand Your Ground law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again," Wonder, 63, said on Sunday. "As a matter of fact, wherever I find the law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world.” Ground law is abolished in Florida, I will never perform there again," Wonder, 63, said on Sunday. "As a matter of fact, wherever I find the law exists, I will not perform in that state or in that part of the world.” The Zimmerman trial verdict sparked widespread protests across the country, including a peaceful demonstration in Los Angeles that spiraled out of control on Monday, with participants vandalizing cars and attacking bystanders. The verdict also inspired passionate responses from other musicians. Beyonce called for a moment of silence for Martin during a concert in Nashville, Tenn. Rapper Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to express her disappointment with the ruling. "And our taxes paid for that trial," she wrote. "We just paid to see a murderer walk free after killing an innocent unarmed little boy.”

America's most dangerous cities Based on FBI data, these population centers have the highest rates of murder, rape, aggravated assault and other violent crimes. Samuel Weigley, Alexander E. M. Hess and Michael B. Sauter, 24/Wall St. Unsafe havens After falling for five consecutive years, violent crime was up by 1.2% last year in the United States, as measured by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which classifies murder, non-negligent manslaughter, rape, some robberies and aggravated assault as violent crimes. Based on the FBI Uniform Crime Report, the cities in this slide show below can be considered the nation's most dangerous. Many of these cities have been in bad economic shape for years, in some cases since well before the start of the Great Recession. Economic woes prompt some residents to flee, and population decline produces a loss of economic diversity that is a contributing factor in violent crime in some cities, according to John Roman, a senior fellow at the Urban institute. Poverty rates in each of the most dangerous cities exceeded the national average of 15.9% in 2011. "It is very clear that poverty, in particular, is associated with higher crime rates," explained Roman. However, the precise relationship between crime and poverty is unclear, Roman noted. "(It is) very difficult to say whether crime makes places poorer or poverty causes more crime," he said. The cities on this list also had smaller percentages of adults with a high school diploma than the national average of 86%. On its website, the FBI urges readers to be cautious about rankings based on violent-crime statistics. Such data can ignore factors that influence crime, according to the bureau, and may fail to account for different ways such crimes are sometimes measured and reported. The Urban Institute's Roman cautioned against comparing cities based on their crime rates. However, because the cities with the highest and lowest rates of violence have remained consistent for many years, he believes the rankings are useful. Click through this slide show, published July 11, for details about the five most dangerous U.S. cities, based on FBI crime statistics. The website 24/7 Wall St. has augmented the crime statistics with population, economic and educational data for each community. No. 5: Memphis, Tenn.

No. 4: St. Louis

No. 3: Oakland, Calif.

No. 2: Detroit

No. 1: Flint, Mich.
