And so Connecticut authorities closed the book on the second-deadliest shooting in U.

But it seems something is in the air in Sochi on the Black Coast of Russia, as it has emerged online that Winter Olympians are apparently flooding the hook-up app Tinder.
According to Tinder use of the site has quadrupled in recent days. And an anonymous Tumblr is collecting what it claims are real Tinder profiles of various athletes. Needless to say, it’s entirely possible that someone could be spoofing these accounts, and there is no evidence any of the athletes is using it for anything other than promotion.
