Carole Baskin made her dancing debut on the Season 29 premiere of Dancing With the Stars Monday night. However, unfortunately for Baskin, the mysterious disappearance of her husband Don Lewis, and accusations that Baskin was involved in his alleged murder, continued to haunt her as the family of Lewis appeared in one of the commercials during the episode asking for tips about his disappearance.
Earlier in the day, it was revealed that the Lewis family had purchased commercial time during the premiere and, sure enough, the special message aired in select markets, including Tampa, where Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue sanctuary is located, during the first break. The spot opened with Lewis’s three daughters Gale, Lynda and Donna explaining how much they miss their dad and how they “need to know what happened” to him. Anne, Lewis’s former assistant, also made an appearance stating, “All we’re asking is justice for Don.” Finally, all four women were beside the Lewis family attorney, John M. Phillips, as he stated, “Don Lewis mysteriously disappeared in 1997. His family deserves answers. They deserve justice. Do you know who did this, or if Carole Baskin was involved?” Donna then revealed that a $100,000 reward has been funded for those who may have tips regarding Lewis.
Baskin rose to fame from the extremely popular Netflix documentary Tiger King, which discusses Lewis’s disappearance and, subsequently, started a huge debate among viewers over whether or not Carole Baskin killed her husband. Meanwhile, Baskin has been basking in the limelight, and Monday night’s debut performance was a perfect example.
Viewers could not get enough of Lewis’s family’s savagery airing the commercial before Baskin’s performance and quickly took to Twitter to express their amusement:
Playing a “what happened to don Lewis” commercial right before Carole Baskin dances is the most savage thing I’ve ever seen 😂😂 #DWTS

As for her performance, no opportunity was missed as Baskin danced the Paso Doble to “Eye of the Tiger,” which was very fitting.
In the end, Baskin scored an 11/30. While it may not have been the best performance of the night, it was definitely one of the most entertaining.
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.

British bomb disposal expert dies in explosion on Solomon Islands
A British bomb disposal expert has been killed in an explosion in the Solomon Islands.
Luke Atkinson, 57, was working for Norwegian People’s Aid, an 81-year-old humanitarian organisation, specialising in mine disposal and relief aid.
Mr Atkinson, from London, was a programme manager working on creating a database of unexploded ordnance, dating back to the Second World War. Trent Lee, an Australian in his 40s who was a chemical weapons adviser, was also killed.
Police are working overnight to clear the site of the explosion in a residential area of Honiara, the Solomon Islands capital.
The blast could reportedly be heard three miles away, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported.
“Explosives ordinance disposal officers will have to render the scene safe before forensics and other investigators access the scene to find out what happened,” Inspector Clifford Tunuki said.
According to ABC, investigators are trying to ascertain why the explosives were taken to a flat, which serves as the project office.
The Solomon Islands, which was a major battleground in the war, is strewn with unexploded ordnance and workers have been trying to clear the site ahead of the 2023 Pacific Games.
“There is a worldwide problem with the remnants of war all kinds of munition are left after conflict and it takes a tremendous toll on societies,” Per Nergaard, the deputy general secretary of Norwegian People’s Aid, told the Telegraph.
“We have been doing for the last 25 years. We are among the largest in the humanitarian field.”
Mr Nergaard paid tribute to Mr Atkinson.
“Luke is a very experienced ex-army guy and worked with us for more than 10 years in various countries.
“I knew him very well, I have been working with him since the mid-90s. He was a fantastic person.
“You could deploy him at any theatre he would be an extremely accomplished manager at these kind situations.”
Morgan Stanley Lifts Facebook’s PT On New Features
Morgan Stanley raised Facebook’s (FB) price target to $295 (16.8% upside potential) from $285 citing strong user engagement of new features like Reels, Instagram Shopping and Facebook Marketplace. The analyst reiterated his Buy rating on the stock.
In the latest AlphaWise survey conducted by Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak, 34% of Americans use Facebook’s Instagram Reels, while 28% use Instagram Shopping on a monthly basis. The survey also revealed that 15% of participants use Facebook Marketplace daily and 56% use it monthly.
He said “We show how these products could add ~$3bn (~4%) to our ’21 growth forecasts from US monetization alone, giving us higher confidence in our ~23% ’21 revenue growth, which may prove conservative given these products’ potential. At the very least, this speaks to how FB’s multi-year revenue runway remains long.”
Recently, during the Facebook Connect event on Sept. 16, the social media company unveiled the next generation of the Oculus Quest Virtual Reality (VR) headset and new smart glasses in collaboration with Ray-Ban. The company also announced several longer-term projects using VR/ AR (Augmented Reality) technology. (See FB stock analysis on TipRanks).
Currently, the Street has a bullish outlook on the stock. The Strong Buy analyst consensus is based on 31 Buys, 4 Holds, and 1 Sell. The average analyst price target of $294.63 implies upside potential of 16.7% to current levels, with shares gaining 23% year-to-date.

Boss lures maids to home, chains 1 to bed; other dies trying to escape, TX cops say
After two maids were lured to their boss’ home Saturday, one died trying to escape and the other was found chained to a bed, Texas police say.
Both women worked as house cleaners at 59-year-old Jose Soriano’s Liberty County residence, KPRC reported. Police said Soriano told one of the women that he had revealing photos of her and that he would only delete them if she met him at his home, according to the outlet.
The two women went to Soriano’s home, but when they arrived, police said he sexually assaulted one of them and chained her by the ankle to the bed with a rope tied around her neck, KTRK reported.
The other woman — of whom Soriano claimed to have photos — tried to escape, but crashed her car while backing out of the driveway and it burst into flames, according to KHOU. When Soriano ran out of the house, he left his phone behind and the woman chained to the bed used it to call for help around 6:15 p.m., police said.
Police arrived and discovered the woman in the car was dead and badly burned, according to KHOU.
Her name has not been released, KPRC reported. The other woman was found still chained to the bed and taken to an area hospital for observation, according to the outlet.
Police said Soriano escaped the home in a gray Ford pickup, KTRK reported. He has not been located. Anyone with information on is whereabouts is asked to contact Liberty County Sheriff’s Office at 936-336-4500.
