    Sean Penn’s lawyers have warned the streaming service Netflix it will have “blood on their hands” if a documentary about the actor’s meeting with Mexican drug lord El Chapo is released. The Oscar-winner is said to fear for his safety over the suggestion he helped bring the infamous Mexican criminal to justice by working with the American government. However Netflix is standing its ground, noting Mr Penn himself has discussed the bizarre meeting and refusing to pull the “stranger-than-fiction” story. The row centres on an audience that El Chapo granted Mr Penn and Mexican actress Kate del Castillo in October...

    An influential British theatre director has reportedly been removed from his post amid allegations he made inappropriate sexual comments to staff. Max Stafford-Clark, former artistic director of London's Royal Court theatre, allegedly asked staff members about losing their virginity. One staff member claimed Stafford-Clark told her he was "like a virgin again" since he had suffered a stroke. Widely regarded as one of the country's most successful theatre directors, Stafford-Clark was artist director of the Royal Court for 14 years until he left to set up Out of Joint. A stroke in 2006 left him using a walking stick and...

    A while back, someone spray-painted a swastika on a trash cart at the University of Maryland. As with so many other similar situations lately, students got extremely upset and the school did its best to respond. Also, as with so many other similar situations lately, it appears we have yet another faked hate crime. From The College Fix: You wouldn’t know it by reading news from the University of Maryland or its student newspaper, but the suspect charged in connection with a spray-painted swastika on campus is … African-American. ... So maybe that’s why currently only one news outlet notes...

    Fans booed New Orleans Saints players who knelt before the presentation of the American flag and the singing of the national anthem Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The boos rang down during a moment of silence for fallen NOPD officer Marcus McNeil, who was killed in the line of duty Friday. The fans cheered when the players stood before the anthem, which was performed by former Saintsation Deri Tucker. Sunday's game vs. the Lions was the Saints' first at the Dome since President Trump weighed in on protesting NFL players during a campaign rally in Alabama last month. Officer Marcus...

    Yelberton Abraham Tittle, the Hall of Fame quarterback whose career spanned 17 professional season, has died at the age of 90. Tittle may be best remembered for the iconic photograph of him by Morris Berman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, showing him as he attempted recover from being beaten and bloodied by a brutal hit by John Baker of the Steelers in 1964, his final season. The 38-year-old Tittle suffered a concussion and broken sternum on the play, but played through his injuries and didn’t miss a game that season. An All-SEC quarterback at LSU and MVP of the 1947 Cotton...

    "The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar," she said. "The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes." Meryl Streep has spoken out against Harvey Weinstein, praising the women who have shared their stories of the Hollywood producer's alleged sexual assault as "heroes." Since the publication of The New York Times' report — detailing decades of allegations of Weinstein's sexual harassment and abuse, some of which resulted in paid settlements — many have called his behavior an industry secret that was widely known but never reported on the record. But the actress...

    NY Post ^ | 10/8/17 | Max Jaeger
    Pro-football quarterback Colin Kaepernick has no plans to stand for the national anthem if he gets another job in the league, his girlfriend said Sunday, following reports he would spike his protest given a second shot. “The reports that Colin will stand for the anthem are completely false! He has never discussed this with anyone,” tweeted Kaepernick’s gal pal, Nessa Diab, after stories that he would change his tune to land a job surfaced again Sunday. Kaepernick quoted Winston Churchill in own tweet Sunday, also implying that reports were false. “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth...

    TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – With a 1929 Model A Ford Phaeton making the final 3.1-mile (4.99-kilometer) journey across the Hudson River, the Tappan Zee Bridge in New York City's northern suburbs has officially closed. Much of the fanfare that accompanied the opening of an adjacent $3.9 billion twin-span named in honor of former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo in August was missing Friday night when the Tappan Zee saw its final crossing, according to The Journal News . Seth Kestenbaum was the last driver to cross the 61-year-old bridge around 10 p.m. in the vintage Ford. "If you're first across the...
  • Dashboard Devices Causing More Distracted Driving: AAA

    10/05/2017 11:08:03 AM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 40 replies
    A new study from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that infotainment centers included in the dashboards of our cars are causing more distracted driving. The AAA study found that the technology built into the car including voice or touch screen navigation can distract drivers from the road for more than 40 seconds. Out of the 30 new 2017 models that were tested, 2/3 of them had built-in technology systems that were rated as "highly" distracting. Here in Connecticut, AAA found men admitted to being distracted far more often than women, and men tend to use technology more often...

    Ever since the tragic shooting in Las Vegas Sunday night, legions of celebrities who have very little knowledge of guns, criminal psychology, mental disorders, or any helpful information. Have taken to Twitter or gone on television to offer their “solutions,” to the problem of mass shootings in America. The latest such incident of ill-informed advice, in the sports world, comes from New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton. On Tuesday, Payton responded to the heinous Las Vegas attack by tweeting claims that, since 1968, more Americans have been killed by guns than have been killed on all battlefields throughout the whole...

    Commuters travelling in South-West London experienced delays Monday morning after passengers on a train forced open the doors and ran onto the tracks to escape a man with a bible. The incident took place near Wimbledon station, as a passenger on a packed commuter train started reading lines from the bible. Another passenger asked the man to stop because he was “scaring” others, but it was already too late and panic had set in. The Bible reading man was questioned by police after the train reached the station but was found to be carrying only books and water, and was...

    ESPN has reversed plans not to televise the national anthem prior to tonight’s “Monday Night Football” game after the tragic events that unfolded overnight in Las Vegas. The network will now air the national anthem, followed by a planned moment of silence at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Sporting News first reported the network’s plans to skip the anthem before the Washington Redskins visit the Kansas City Chiefs this evening....

    ESPN ^ | 9/29/17
    It was a rough Thursday night all around for the Chicago Bears -- they lost 35-14 to the Green Bay Packers while simultaneously getting trolled by Butterfinger on Twitter. The night's roasting started early when the candy brand took to Twitter to weigh in on the Bears' slippery fingers when quarterback Mike Glennon had a snap bounce off his knee for a fumble that the Packers recovered. The Bears, obviously offended by the ironic tweet, responded with a predictable joke. While it's tough to reconcile two bad losses in one night, at least the Bears can take solace in knowing...

    The all-woman league formerly known as the Lingerie Football League announced this week its belief that America's flag and national anthem are "far too sacred" to protest. The league, recently rebranded as the Legends Football League, said in a Tuesday statement that its players would not be taking a knee during the national anthem as many of their male counterparts in the NFL have done. "The LFL recognizes everyone's First Amendment right to protest, but our nation's flag and anthem are far too sacred," the league said. "Too many fellow Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice, so that our flag...
