    Elvis isn’t a particularly funny movie. But it did make me laugh out loud exactly one time, which is the best thing I can say about Baz Lurhmann’s exhaustingly loud, terribly boring new film. Early in the movie, Colonel Tom Parker (a grotesque Tom Hanks) is working with country singer Hank Snow, booking him for traveling music revues. We know he’s a money-hungry hustler—he’s narrating the movie from the perspective of many years later, after he’s gambled all of now-dead Elvis Presley’s money away. But right now, he’s happy working with the popular Hank. But then he hears someone on the radio that everyone’s freaking out about. Who is this guy, playing and belting this wild rock and roll, uh, music? Colonel Tom can already tell just from listening to this one song that this guy is definitely going to be the star of the show, even if he’s only on the bottom of the lineup. And best of all, it turns out that this guy is white. Of course he’s white, you say! This is a Baz Luhrmann movie,...
    Getty Deshaun Watson is introduced by the Cleveland Browns. Randy Mueller, the 2000 NFL Executive of the Year, brings over 30 years of experience in the football business, including stints as the general manager of Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins. With Heavy, Mueller breaks down the NFL from a front office perspective. You can follow Randy on Twitter @RandyMueller_ We are now under 100 days and counting to the NFL regular season of 2022 beginning. For some teams, their fan base and analysts have already dissected their rosters through a microscope, but when it comes to the Cleveland Browns, it just hasn’t seemed right to talk football. Since making the move for QB Deshaun Watson and the headline-grabbing $230 million fully guaranteed contract I, for one, have felt no need or interest in breaking down this Browns roster or looking ahead to what kind of a season this might be.  I still can’t help but wonder: Did the Browns’ decision-makers misjudge the incoming reaction from fans and others in response to a move like...
    Jada Pinkett Smith has directly addressed the moment husband Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars for the first time in depth, saying she hopes the two men have the 'opportunity to heal' and 'reconcile' after the shocking incident. Speaking ahead of a Red Table Talk special on alopecia released Wednesday, Jada, 50, began by referencing the controversy when Will, 53, assaulted Chris, 57, after he made a joke about Jada's bald head, which is the result of her suffering from the autoimmune disorder.  'This is a really important Red Table Talk on alopecia. Considering what I've been through with my own health and what happened at the Oscars,' the actress began. 'Thousands have reached out to me with their stories. I'm using this moment to give our alopecia family an opportunity to talk about what it's like to have this condition and to inform people about what alopecia actually is. Speaking out: Jada Pinkett Smith breaks her silence on THAT Oscars slap saying she wants husband Will Smith and Chris Rock to 'talk it out' on Red...
    ORLANDO, Florida — Former President Donald Trump is not the only Republican who refuses to stop talking about 2020 and make a full pivot to November’s midterm elections. In conversations with congressional Republicans and party activists attending this weekend’s annual Conservative Political Action Conference, support for keeping the spotlight on supposed misdeeds that occurred in the last presidential election reigned supreme. Amid some anxiety on the Right that looking backward could undermine GOP opportunities to maximize gains in the House and Senate in 2022, Republicans here said it would be a mistake to focus exclusively on the next election and voters’ current priorities. “I think we need to talk about both, because if we don’t clean up the issues and the concerns associated with the 2020 election, we’re going to have similar concerns arise in 2022,” Sen. Bill Hagerty of Tennessee told the Washington Examiner. Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and chief CPAC organizer, is similarly rejecting suggestions that Republicans need to stop discussing what allegedly happened in the 2020 presidential election to ensure the party wins...
    (CNN)The title perfectly captures the tone of "We Need to Talk About Cosby," conveying the reluctance and unease felt by Bill Cosby's longtime fans as accusations of sexual assault dismantled his legacy. In that sense, director W. Kamau Bell has made a four-part docuseries as much about what happens when heroes let you down as the man himself.In order to do that, Bell (the comic who also hosts a show for CNN) must start by establishing what a towering figure Cosby represented over a half-century span that began in the 1960s, helping viewers understand his genius to fully appreciate the body blow that the allegations against him delivered.In one especially illuminating clip, Jerry Seinfeld calls the string of comedy albums that Cosby released an unmatched pinnacle in standup. That observation comes during a 2017 appearance on Stephen Colbert's late-night show, where Colbert agrees with the sentiment, but quickly adds that he can no longer listen to those records, a view Seinfeld questioned before conceding that it was perhaps impossible to separate the artist from the person.Bell also provides necessary context...
    At the beginning of the new documentary series We Need to Talk About Cosby, director W. Kamau Bell asks what should be a simple question: “Who is Bill Cosby now?” Few of his interview subjects are able to answer it. They all sigh. Heavily sigh. One subject makes a point to label hers: “deep Black-girl sigh.” One person just says, “Fuck,” a one-word answer to the unanswerable. But there are a few who manage to form a response. “He is known as America’s dad.” “Or a quote unquote monster.” “The juxtaposition is just bananas.” “He was someone to believe in and someone to trust.” “He wasn’t the nice person everyone thought he was.” “An example of the complexity of humanity.” Then things get a bit more blunt. “He was a rapist who had a really big TV show once.” High-profile attorney Gloria Allred is quick and direct: “I look forward to seeing Bill Cosby again,” she says. “In a court of law.” We Need to Talk About Cosby is a four-part docuseries directed by Bell, an Emmy-winning TV host and...
    (CNN)The Republican Party is working overtime to suppress the vote and undermine American democracy. It is a party which ignores climate change, the existential threat to our planet and represents the interests of the wealthy and the powerful while turning its back on struggling working-class families. The GOP is the party that gives tax breaks to billionaires while pushing for cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other programs desperately needed by ordinary Americans. Bernie SandersAnd yet, despite the outrageous behavior of leading Republicans and their reactionary and unpopular agenda, recent polling suggests that Republicans stand a strong chance to gain control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate and pick up additional seats in state legislatures throughout the country. Why is this happening? Why, despite the horrendous Republican record, are Democrats losing support among Latinos, young people and African Americans? How does it happen that a party that is supposed to stand for working families was rejected by over 75% of White voters without college degrees in the most recent gubernatorial race in Virginia?Democrats cannot ignore...
    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) said that the economy, inflation, the border, crime, and coronavirus are the issues people are talking about and if Democrats don’t talk about them, “we are going to lose the election.” Host Martha MacCallum read from [relevant exchange begins around 1:25] an article by Doug Schoen and Carly Cooperman in The Hill, which said, “Biden and congressional Democrats need to dedicate their focus to…viable legislation that addresses voters’ top issues of concern. The administration has spent too much time wrangling members of their own party — without success — to pass policies that ultimately alienate key voting groups like Hispanic and Latino voters.” She continued, “And we’ve seen the drift in support, only 28% of Latino voters support the president at this point. So, when he talks about the need to focus on top issues of concern, and when we poll those, it’s the economy, inflation, the border, COVID, would you like to see this White House more focused — and crime, I should point out,...
    MSNBC medical analyst Dr. Vin Gupta told Joy Reid Wednesday it’s time to begin looking at the bioethics of placing a lower priority on unvaccinated Covid patients with regard to treatment. Gupta, a pulmonologist, joined The ReidOut for a discussion with the host and fellow guest Dr. Brook Watts about the country’s expected caseload as the Omicron variant spreads. Reid, when introducing the physician, said she has run out of patience with vaccine hesitant Americans. “I’m sort of reaching my kind of peak fatigue, mental fatigue level, and I’m not even dealing with what the doctor and what you guys are dealing with in real life,” said the MSNBC host. “But it’s like, I know just off the top of my head, at least a half dozen people who have gotten Covid, who are vaccinated, but who got it in settings where they were around mixed groups or were with people who were not necessarily vaccinated.” Reid said that she had seen models which are projecting 140 million new Covid cases over the next two months, and asked Gupta what...
    Republican Rep. Jim Jordan has lifted the lid on how he vaulted from the political margins to Trump world insider, all thanks to the power of television.  In his new memoir he describes how he realized that then President Trump was an avid viewer and how to take advantage of the fact. 'Every time we were on TV, we weren’t just talking to people in the television audience; we were talking to POTUS,' Jordan writes, according to excerpts from 'Do What You Said You Would Do: Fighting for Freedom in the Swamp' obtained by Cleveland.com.  'We didn’t necessarily need to schedule a phone call with the president or try to arrange a meeting. We could talk to him directly through Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC.'  Jordan, a founding member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said he had been operating on the periphery of politics. But things changed quickly when he paid his first visit to the White House after Trump's 2017 inauguration for a bill signing. Rep. Jim Jordan developed a close relationship with President Trump after he realized...
    VIDEO4:1704:17Without China, Paris agreement would not have happened: TimmermansThe Road to COP26 LONDON — International leaders need to talk to China and convince the nation to implement concrete steps toward de-carbonization, the EU's climate chief told CNBC Tuesday ahead the COP26 climate summit in November. China announced earlier this month that it would stop building new coal-fired power projects overseas. The nation has also said that it aims to become carbon neutral by 2060 and that it will hit peak emissions by 2030. However, European officials want these ambitions to go beyond words and be followed up with immediate and concrete action. "We need to look at emissions. Europe is responsible for about 8% of global emissions — we are taking a very, very serious commitment and we are going very far. The United States has come back into the game, they're responsible, I think, for about 16% of emissions, but we need to talk to China, they're responsible for about 28% of global emissions," Frans Timmermans, who is the European Commission's executive vice-president for the European Green Deal, told...
    The Whiteboard is The Step Back’s daily basketball newsletter, covering the NBA, WNBA and more. Subscribe here to get it delivered to you via email each morning. The Portland Trail Blazers are in a waking nightmare, and it’s one of their own making. Or, more accurately, general manager Neil Olshey’s making. We’ve seen it in Dallas with what was going on under Mark Cuban’s nose. We’ve seen it with Marv Albert, who’s currently enjoying a farewell tour in his final year as an NBA broadcaster despite ugly accusations from his past. We’ve seen it with players like Kristaps Porzingis and Derrick Rose. And every time these types of past allegations resurface and the conversation picks up again, “whataboutism” takes over. What about when Billups was an ESPN broadcaster or when he became an assistant with the LA Clippers? Where was your anger then? Aside from questions like these totally missing the point, they’re insulting to the many, many survivors of sexual assault and abuse who enjoy professional basketball but are constantly told by common league practices that their past trauma is...
    The release of a shocking new novel following an elderly couple as they explore the idea of a suicide pact has prompted experts to warn there is an increased risk of the practice amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Should We Stay or Should We Go by Lionel Shriver, who lives in the UK, is set to be released next week and follows married couple Kay and Cyril, who are approaching their 80s and concerned about developing Alzheimers. Each of the chapters depicts 12 different alternative scenarios for what happens when the couple decide to take fatal doses of Seconal after concluding Britons  'aren't living longer - they're dying longer'.  Its release comes weeks after Matt Hancock asked for data on those with terminal conditions who have killed themselves, launching a new debate on legalising assisted suicide. Experts told FEMAIL the issue is at risk of growing, with psychological therapist Michael Padraig Acton saying: 'Geriatric suicide pacts could definitely be on the increase, especially in times of a pandemic.  Should We Stay or Should We Go by Lionel Shriver, who lives in the UK,...
    LOUISE Fischer is a 26-year-old Danish journalist who has got the world very hot under the collar. According to many, she has crossed a journalistic line. To others, her actions were completely unnecessary. Heaps are outraged by her behaviour. 3Danish journalist Louise Fischer recorded herself ­interviewing a man as they had sexCredit: Instagram Personally, I think she sounds pretty cool. Pretty spunky, if you pardon the pun. This woman took part in a ­feature for Danish radio about the reopening of swingers’ clubs post-lockdown and recorded herself ­interviewing a man as they had sex. I think her intentions and approach are fascinating, very worthy and require an urgent conversation. We need to talk about sex. Why are we still so insanely sensitive around this subject, and especially women’s role in it?  As someone who was brought up in Sweden, where the approach is a pragmatic, logical and egalitarian one, I found the “titter ye not” attitude to sex itself in this country only served to burden the subject with gratuitous awkwardness.  It was as if this extra layer of comedy...
    NJ beaches paid for by all, but parking keeps outsiders away Tim Cook is making a rare appearance to defend his company under oath Amazing Device Lights Up Countertops And Fixes Dark Kitchens Ad Microsoft Full screen 1/5 SLIDES © Getty / Dave J Hogan Apologies, but We Just Really Need to Talk About Alexander Skarsgård's Dating History Alexander Skarsgård is notoriously private about his personal life, but he's also had several high-profile relationships with other stars you'll definitely recognize. In the past few years, he's either been single or been keeping his personal life under wraps, but before that, he was linked to a handful of his Hollywood costars and other notable celebs. While gossip often inaccurately linked him with A-listers like Margot Robbie and Katie Holmes, Skarsgård's actual relationship history is actually a lot quieter and less dramatic than that. Take a look at what we do know about his history, along with a couple of rare quotes about his relationships.
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: My husband and I live in a large condo community. In beautiful weather, we often keep our windows and the sliding glass door to our balcony open. Some new people moved into the apartment below us, and several times each day, we noticed an extremely pungent cloud of marijuana smoke enter our apartment. I cannot overstate the strength of the smell-cloud that enters our place — it feels like he’s blowing it directly into our faces. We tried to work out the mechanics of how this was happening, and we think the neighbor is standing just outside his door, probably so as not to be seen, and releasing the smoke straight up. We hemmed and hawed endlessly about how to approach our new neighbors about this. This is a community where no one really knows each other, even before the pandemic, so we’ve never interacted with them, even though we share a stairwell. We thought a well-written note would do, but we weren’t pleased with the thought of our relationship starting with a stern note asking them...
    This book should come with a warning label! “The Push” by Ashley Audrain (Pamela Dorman Books), out now, is a buzzy debut novel that packs quite a few punches. With shades of “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” the 2003 Lionel Shriver book about a beyond-troubled teen who commits a school massacre, this GMA Book Club pick for January is a compulsively readable novel that should be avoided by expectant mothers and anyone with a newborn baby. (Everyone else, proceed at your own risk!)  Ashley AudrainBarbara Stoneham When she becomes pregnant, Blythe Connor is determined to be the kind of warm, caring mother she herself never had. In the thick fog of new motherhood and all its sleepless nights, Blythe becomes convinced there is something wrong with her daughter Violet. As Violet gets older, that feeling only grows: Too many “accidents” seem to happen whenever Violet is around, too many children suddenly falling off playground structures, too many household items destroyed, all met with a cold stare that seems creepily mature beyond her years. Her husband Fox thinks it’s all...

    Joe Judge and the New York Giants are leading the NFC East. It’s time to consider him a member of the Coach of the Year conversation.  How does one define the Coach of the Year? How does a team that’s built to win and should be successful always takes home the hardware? Sometimes, the names that no one remembers find more success than those established. That’s because of Judge and nothing else. One look at the Giants’ misfit roster and one would wonder how anyone could win behind the offensive line and with an average secondary? That comes down to coaching, something the Giants have hit out of the Meadowlands and into Yankees Stadium. Kevin Stefanski has the Browns sitting with their first winning record in over a decade. Brian Flores has turned Miami’s defense into one of the league’s best and is winning with a rookie quarterback. Mike Tomlin took the Steelers to an 11-0 start despite average offensive play.All are deserving of consideration. So is Judge at this point. If the Giants keep winning, they’ll make it to the postseason...
    A Catholic lay organization is denouncing a recent congratulatory message the United States Bishops’ Conference sent to former Vice President Joe Biden, warning any attempts to compromise with Biden’s agenda will place the integrity of the church at great risk. “We are on the cusp of having a Catholic president … who supports a war on biology and the family, abortion on demand, closing Catholic schools, and more,” wrote Brian Burch, president of CatholicVote, a national faith-based advocacy organization, in a statement to supporters last week. As Breitbart News reported, the bishops recognized a Biden election victory in a statement on November 7, and called for national unity and a spirit of compromise for the sake of the common good. We recognize “that Joseph R. Biden, Jr., has received enough votes to be elected the 46th President of the United States,” Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez stated. “We congratulate Mr. Biden and acknowledge that he joins the late President John F. Kennedy as the second United States president to profess the Catholic faith.” Burch responded: When I heard the bishops’ response,...
    She was there in the hospital waiting room talking about hot dish. She and her family would soon be taking her son, my good friend, off life support and she was recounting casserole ingredients. Young, judgmental me was appalled: How could a mother be so shallow at such a painful time?   Nearly four years into Trump’s presidency, months under the cloud of a pandemic and since George Floyd, and weeks before a momentous election, I’ve been thinking about that hot dish and wondering whether it was rice, noodle, potato or what. All talk, all thought, these days is big, too big. Kitty SheaRolling around in deep, real, meaningful conversation used to feel like a life force, one of spun thoughts and stirred feelings: the material from which we forge human connection. Introvert default? Could be. We abhor small talk and aren’t very good at it. My “make nice” résumé consists of decades of inwardly rolling my eyes as potential clients interview me, guys in bars approach me and neighbors happen by my mailbox, all of them in seeming verbal thrall...
    Time and again we have seen bills pushed to control the ability of women of color to make our own reproductive health decisions, from when to become pregnant and raise children to creating more obstacles to abortion access. We heard the horrific news that immigrant women were being forced to have hysterectomies — and over the past year, bans on abortion have swept the nation. Let’s be clear: This is all part of a political agenda to deny autonomy to women of color. We are told when we can and can’t have kids, and what kind of health care we are allowed to get. This is all while people ignore the very real plight that Black women are facing when we seek to try to have healthy pregnancies. Black women are dying in childbirth at the same time I hear lawmakers talk about how much they value life. Where is the care for the lives of Black women when it comes to Breonna Taylor, who was gunned down by police, or Deidre Johnson, a 35-year-old woman in Colorado...
    Left-wing progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y) suggested Tuesday that lawmakers need to stop "asking if white supremacy in policing exists" and instead work to determine the scope of the problem. Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks during a House Oversight and Reform hearing about the supposedly "pervasive" problem of white supremacists infiltrating the nation's police departments. During the hearing, law enforcement officers, legal experts — and even a former neo-Nazi — were asked by lawmakers to testify about their past experiences with racist police officers. When it was Ocasio-Cortez's turn to speak, she suggested that "far too much of the discussion around the issue of white supremacist infiltration of policing focuses on whether this problem exists." "We have known for generations that it's not a question about whether this problem is an issue, it's a matter of how we have allowed it to sustain for so long," she said. "Congress, as well, has been complicit, and our silence has allowed for more violence and continued generational trauma in our communities." Rep. @AOC: "We have to stop asking IF white supremacy...
    Being extremely wealthy isn’t the carefree, champagne-soaked free-for-all you might imagine it to be — at least according to Jennifer Risher. She and her husband, David, earned tens of millions of dollars in the tech world before the ages of 35, and suddenly found themselves in an elite tax bracket without a manual on how to navigate the potential pitfalls of isolation and strained social relationships. “We see wealth from a really narrow perspective: the glitz, the glamour and the greed, but we don’t see the reality,” Risher, 55, told The Post. “Money is a taboo subject, but it really shouldn’t be.” The mother of two calls her new book, “We Need To Talk: A Memoir About Wealth,” “a coming out” as rich, something she had previously struggled with. While attending a writing workshop at Squaw Valley, in California near Lake Tahoe, she was terrified to introduce herself. “We Need To Talk: A Memoir About Wealth”Courtesy “I was going to say, ‘My name is Jennifer, and I’m writing about how hard it is to have a lot of money.’ It...
    (CBS Local)- Michelle Wie West is one of the best golfers of her era, winning five times on the LPGA Tour and recording 59 career Top 10s. She stepped away from the game last year due to a wrist injury that became the latest in a long line of injury struggles for her. Then, Wie West, became a mother this June when her daughter, Makenna was born. In going through the process of becoming a mom, Wie West says that she was scared at first because she felt that her body had let her down so many times with injuries in her career. “I definitely had an interesting relationship with my body. I’m not talking about body image, but the actual functionality of my body. I had my appendix taken out, I struggled with colitis, I had a lot of internal stuff going on as well as wrist injuries and ankle injuries, and I just felt like my body let me down,” said Wie West in an interview with Tracy Wolfson and Amanda Balionis for We Need To Talk. “I had...
    I was reading a community diary story today that you really should read, if you haven’t already, about the writer’s experience taking the cognitive assessment test. I have had difficulty processing Donald Trump’s answer regarding this matter to Fox News in a way that I hadn’t really come to terms with until reading that diary and thinking about how it made me feel. I had my first MOCA test years after rehab recovering from a violent crime assault, and, unfortunately, since then for the past 25 years, I’ve had a version of this test given to me with decreasing regularity. The point of a cognitive test isn’t to “ace” it or prove how much of a smart person you are: The point is to track whether or not you are experiencing a negative trend in your ability to function, which can be caused by time, disability, or even medication. As the president bragged about his test results, one question kept popping up: Why brag? This test is easy. Only once, due to a bad drug interaction, did I ever suffer difficulties. It was that one time, though, that...
    (CBS Local)- Laila Ali’s father, Muhammad Ali, is now one of the most revered athlete activists of all-time. As the country continues to come to terms with its history of police brutality and systemic racism, brought to the forefront by the recent protests, Ali is hopeful that the movement will continue to push forward, long after the protests and unrest begins to peter out. “We want to make sure this continues happening because we’ve marched before, we’ve protested before. We’ve been complaining for many years,” said Ali in a conversation with Swin Cash on the latest episode of CBS Sports Network’s We Need To Talk. “I think that, for the first time in history, we’ve seen so many people globally taking a stand for Black people, which is absolutely amazing, but I want people to keep this same energy going forward.” "I grew up watching my father and his activism…even when it was unpopular, he was taking those stands.” Tonight, @TheRealLailaAli joins @SwinCash for an extended discussion on race, injustice, & the need to address systemic racism in our country on...
