Powerball Jackpot Hits $1.3 Billion:
Another Powerball drawing failed to produce a winner on Saturday after reaching a staggering $900 million jackpot earlier in the day — by far the largest ever.
Now lottery officials estimate the jackpot is already at $1.3 billion ahead of the next drawing on Wednesday night.
The jackpot has been growing since November 7. It first broke into the top 10 largest jackpots ranking last weekend, when it hit $400 million. Since then ticket sales have only taken off.
It hit $700 million on Thursday after nobody won on Wednesday night — the 18th drawing without a winner.
The buying frenzy continued all day Saturday. A few hours before the drawing, the Texas Lottery reported that $5,838,152 in Powerball tickets were sold in a one-hour period.’

David Bowie, whose ground-breaking sound and chameleon-like ability to reinvent himself made him a pop music fixture for more than four decades, has died. He was 69.

“David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief,” said a statement posted on his official social media accounts.
