    Michigan football helmets are one of the most distinguishable lids in college or pro football. The Wolverines winged look with the Maize and Blue colors has been in place for a century, but there will be a slight modification for this coming season. When the Michigan Wolverines hit the field for Saturday's season-opener at Minnesota, they'll have an "EQUALITY" sticker on the back representing the diversity and commitment to unity. The helmet decals will be worn by all Michigan's varsity sports this year after a student-athlete initiative in conjunction with the athletic department developed the designs that will be worn...

    A group of Minneapolis residents has filed a lawsuit against the city arguing there aren’t enough police officers to keep the people safe. The lawsuit contends that the city is not providing adequate levels of policing as set out in its own charter. One former council member, Don Samuels, and his wife argued, according to Fox 9 Minneapolis, that “children can’t go outside right now as violent crimes including shootings, carjackings and murders have increased since the death of George Floyd.” The council contends that they have maintained the proper level of sworn police officers dictated by the population.

    Anyone have data about all the riots? Where have they been, land area covered, destroyed, etc? I’m sick of arguing these liberals like on NextDoor who actually minimize the riots by calling them “protests”, then saying hardly anything has been violent (“MPP”). then bringing up the FBI more concerned about white supremacy like the MI gov issue, etc. you know, the one incident that proves the opposite.

    The Big Ten is slated to begin its 2020 football schedule this week. But when one team takes to the field, they’ll be sporting a black helmet logo to show solidarity with the fight for social change. On Thursday, the Illinois football team announced that their players will be wearing a black Block I decal on their helmets for their season-opener against Wisconsin tomorrow. The move is the result of an initiative from the student-athletes in support of advocating for social change.

    An airline passenger slapped a Delta Air Lines flight attendant during boarding in a disturbing incident that was captured on video. The confrontation began with a pair of passengers refusing to buckle their seat belts and put on their face masks on a flight that was set to take off from Miami for Atlanta. Witnesses said the flight attendant had already told the passenger to deplane for refusing to follow crew instructions, when the female passenger suddenly slapped the flight attendant across the face. The video shows the woman telling the Delta Air Lines flight attendant “B ****, I’m going...

    "Unfortunately, we have found that your title doesn't meet Prime Video's content quality expectations and is not eligible for publishing on the service at the time," an Amazon spokesperson informed Hoover Institution senior fellow Shelby Steele last week. "We will not be accepting resubmission of this title and this decision may not be appealed," the email continued. "We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause." Fortunately for the viewers and for Amazon, its brass had a change of heart. "They acknowledged what happened and said they would work to improve and prevent incidences like this one from happening again," said...

According to Andrew Zhang with The Daily Texan, an internal survey was conducted to see if band members would be participating in the longstanding tradition. The results found that portion of the band would choose to skip the performance.

    The NBA season has come and gone, but certain decisions from this past year are continuing to be relitigated in league circles. This past week, one agent came out of the woodwork and publicly blasted all parties involved for the social justice messaging that took place over the past few months. This past week, The Athletic published results from a survey it conducted with 20 agents around the NBA. While they discussed a number of topics, what stood out most was one anonymous agent’s rant about the impact of Black Lives Matter (BLM) messaging on the league as a whole....

    In the latest TV ratings, Fox’s coverage of the World Series opener between the Dodgers and Rays averaged 7.2 million total viewers and a Tuesday-topping 1.8 demo rating — though down sharply from the preliminary numbers (11.6 mil/2.9) for last year’s Nationals/Astros Game 1. Check back later for the final tally! NBC | The Voice (7.5 mil/1.0) was down a tick from Monday’s premiere, but teed up Transplant for Stateside highs of 4.3 mil/0.6. ABC | The Bachelorette (4.1 mil.1.1) slipped about 20 percent from last week. Leading out of that, a Supermarket Sweeeeeeep! encore did 1.8 mil and a...

    The Weekly Dish ^ | October 16, 2020 | Andrew Sullivan
    A question I’ve wrestled with this past year or so is a pretty basic one: if critical race/gender/queer theory is unfalsifiable postmodern claptrap, as I have long contended, how has it conquered so many institutions so swiftly? It’s been a staggering achievement, when you come to think of it. Critical theory was once an esoteric academic pursuit. Now it has become the core, underlying philosophy of the majority of American cultural institutions, universities, media, corporations, liberal churches, NGOs, philanthropies, and, of course, mainstream journalism. This summer felt like a psychic break from old-school liberalism, a moment when a big part...

    In the early morning hours of Thursday, Oct. 15th, several local fire departments responded to a fire in rural Clay County, NE. Jonathan Rempel said he was getting his two children ready for school on Thursday when he received a phone call from the Sutton Volunteer Fire Department. “They said Your harvest equipment is on fire,” Rempel recalled. “All of it.” According to the Nebraska State Fire Marshal’s office, the fire destroyed a combine, two trucks and trailers filled with grain, a tractor, and a grain cart. Rempel described the location of the fire as a ‘very rural area’, two...

    It was last Thursday morning around 7 a.m. when Jonathan Rempel, a farmer in Sutton, Nebraska, received a phone call from the Sutton Volunteer Fire Department. They told him that his combine (WHICH HAD BEEN FLYING TRUMP FLAGS), two semis, and a tractor had all caught fire in his cornfield "at about the same time." The tractors had all been parked a safe distance apart, and it looks like the equipment hadn't been used since the night prior (which makes this extra fishy). Sadly, the firefighters were not able to save the equipment. State Fire Marshal Investigators are currently looking...
