    Although most if not all famous Hollywood stars (Ben Affleck, anyone?) are pretending to be shocked and outraged by Harvey Weinstein's horrendous behavior toward women, some prominent members of Hollywood's elite are breaking rank. Case in point: screenwriter Scott Rosenberg, who says that everybody knew what Weinstein was up to... yet nobody did anything about it. Why not, you ask? Simple: Because Weinstein had money and power. Not exactly a guy you want to mess with if you only care about your career and wealth. Rosenberg has worked on films such as High Fidelity, Beautiful Girls, and 2018's Venom. His...

    The reward for tips leading to an arrest in the case of a pit bull stabbed more than 50 times and stuffed in a suitcase is now $33,000. An animal activist from Davie is putting up $10,000. A Homestead veterinarian is donating $5,000. PETA is putting up $10,000 and CrimeStoppers is offering $8,000 — including $5,000 from an anonymous donor. Ollie the pit bull died Thursday night, two days after a passerby found a blue suitcase with a paw sticking out and called police. Dr. Robert Prosek, a vet in Homestead, says he was haunted by the story. “I have...

    It's extremely timely, given the left's hatred of President Trump, to make the whole Harvey Weinstein-Hollywood sexual abuse thing about men in powerful positions taking advantage of poor, innocent women who were just trying to make it in the business. But when we're talking about Weinstein just being the tip of the iceberg, let's not buy into that floating mass just being composed of testosterone.

    Hillary Clinton said in a CNN interview Wednesday that she was “sick” and “shocked” to learn of sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood mogul and longtime Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein, adding she will give away his past contributions to her political campaigns to charity. “I was appalled,” Clinton said of the accusations. “It was something that was just intolerable in every way. And, you know, like so many people who’ve come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past.” Speaking to Fareed Zakaria as part of her...

    Now that The New York Times has put together a stomach-turning chronicle of alleged sexual harassment by the movie mogul Harvey Weinstein — complete with brave, on-the-record statements from, among others, the actress Ashley Judd — we’re hearing a lot about how the story of his misconduct was “the worst-kept secret” in Hollywood and New York... But until now, no journalistic outfit had been able, or perhaps willing, to nail the details and hit publish... Somehow the whispers concerning his alleged hotel-room and workplace abuses never threatened his next big deal, industry award or accolades, which included an honorary Commander...

    Los Angeles is scrambling to make sure the City of Angeles soon starts collecting at least $50 million a year as the world’s top spot to buy recreational marijuana. The countdown clock is ticking down to January 2, 2018, when California joins Nevada, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, Alaska and Washington DC as locations to legally buy marijuana for recreational use. California state bureaucrats and politicians are almost giddy over the $1.8 billion in annual tax revenue that the New Frontier Financials expects the state will collect from its 15 percent excise and dry-weight taxes on “weed.” But many of California’s...

    Men who smoke too much marijuana could face fertility problems because the drug makes sperm 'mellow' causing it to 'swim in circles'. Cannabis - which is the most widely-used illegal drug in Britain - tends to leave users feeling chilled out and relaxed. But now researchers have revealed that it has the same effect on sperm and regular weed smoking can cut counts of the cells by as much as a third.

    The physician credited with discovering Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) in American football players said that anyone who lets children play football could be held accountable for abuse. “Someday there will be a district attorney who will prosecute for child abuse [on the football field], and it will succeed,” said Dr. Bennet Omalu at a New York Press Club talk, Sports Illustrated reported. His remarks come shortly after a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 110 out of 111 National Football League players had evidence of CTE when their brains were examined postmortem.

    Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was released from prison on Monday after serving 13 months for lying to federal investigators about money used to hide sexual abuse charges.

In October 2015, Hastert pleaded guilty to those charges before admitting in April 2016 he sexually molested teenage boys while coaching wrestling at Yorkville High School in Illinois. A federal judge chastised Hastert for his behavior and sentenced him to 15 months in prison, which he did not appeal. His anticipated release date had...
