NO WAY Headlines of the Day For Monday March 5th

While a lot of gals go weak in the knees for a man with a foreign accent, have you ever wondered how those overseas feel about American accents? Well, the language learning app Babble has the answer.

The app asked more than 4,000 European hostel staffers (who come across the most American travelers) from 43 countries, to rate seven different regional tones, and you may be shocked to find out which ranks sexiest.

Overall the Deep Southern accent tops the list with 20% of the vote, followed by the New York accent, with 18%. New Yorkers were the top choice of French voters (57%), while folks in Britain and Sweden preferred the Southern California sound, and the Boston accent is a fave of folks in Germany, Spain and the Netherlands.

Families of the Vegas shooting to get payments.

The fund established in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre begins the process of handing out donations to survivors and their families.


Payments start tomorrow to the families of the 58 people killed last October in the Las Vegas mass shooting. They'll each be getting 275-thousand dollars, along with the families of the 10 people who were permanently brain damaged or paralyzed.

The money comes from a fund set up with the initial goal of raising 500-thousand dollars, but quickly grew to more than $31-million with donors from around the world. In all, more than 850 people were injured in the massacre at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

The fund expects to pay 100% of the money raised to the survivors and their families.
