    “Scream” looks like it’s going to be great. The plot of the latest installment in the saga, according to the featurette’s YouTube description, is, “A new installment of the ‘Scream’ horror franchise will follow a woman returning to her home town to try to find out who has been committing a series of vicious crimes.” (REVIEW: ‘Westworld’ Season 3 Ends With The Possible Deaths Of Multiple Characters) While that’s not much to go off of, I can promise you fans of the earlier films will love the inside look at the newest movie in the horror series. Give it a watch below. As I’ve said too many times to count, I’m not the biggest horror fan on the planet, but I do enjoy a well-done movie with some scares and blood. The “Fear Street” trilogy on Netflix was epic because it perfectly captured the tone of what I like. “Scream” is very similar. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, it’s suspenseful and a ton of fun. What more could you want as a fan of cinema? Now, we’re...
    Prime Video’s new series “Reacher” looks like it’s going to be awesome. The series Alan Ritchson as Jack Reacher is based on the books from Lee Child, which were also turned into a pair of movies with Tom Cruise. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Now, Amazon is taking a crack at the legendary series about Reacher hunting down bad guys, and it looks pretty interesting. Give the trailer a watch below. Most notably, the trailer for “Reacher” paints a hell of a more lighthearted vibe than the movies with Cruise. The movies with Cruise were relatively serious and dark. “Reacher” appears to be way more mellow and funny.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Jack Reacher (@jackreacherbooks) I’m not saying that because it’s necessarily a bad thing. I’m saying it because that’s simply how it appears. What I will say is that anyone who watched Ritchson in “Blue Mountain State” knows he’s a funny guy and can steal a scene. He was hands down the...

    Former US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper filed a lawsuit against the Pentagon over claims bosses 'unfairly' redacted parts of his upcoming memoir about his tenure under Trump after he was fired following the former President's loss. Esper, 57, had filed the suit on Sunday with the Federal District Court in Washington DC which claimed 'significant text is being properly withheld from publication' in his book A Sacred Oath. The book, which was supposed to be published in May, had been brought back to Esper with multiple edits and redactions without an explanation. He claims he has even been pressured to change 'nouns and verbs' within the text. Esper's lawsuit insists that the memoir did not contain any classified information nor did it pose any kind of national security risk. He says that anecdotes in the memoir appear to have been leaked to the press, and that other contentious parts center on information that is already in the public domain.  'Significant text is being improperly withheld from publication in Secretary Esper’s manuscript under the guise of classification,' the lawsuit read,...
    skynesher After last year's pandemic-related restrictions, many Americans are ready to embrace the holidays. But people should also invest a little time to get a jump-start on the upcoming tax season. There are still opportunities to lower tax bills, such as 401(k) contributions, tax-loss harvesting, charitable giving or Roth individual retirement account conversions.

    AA / Peter Kum US Secretary of State Anthony Blingen, during his visit to Africa, which concludes on Saturday, November 20, announced President Biden’s next month’s Democratic Summit. According to the White House, US President Joe Biden will convene a virtual summit of democracy on December 9 and 10 in which state and government leaders and members of civil society will be invited. Blingen stressed that the participation of African countries, and especially Nigeria, was “eagerly awaited”. The summit will help participants fight the “cancer of corruption” that is draining billions of dollars into the economy, while undermining people’s dignity and their confidence in the organization. Before leaving Nigeria on Friday, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledged that “Africa will play a decisive role” in the many pressing challenges and opportunities facing the United States. The US diplomat acknowledged the distrust of many African countries. “Mostly, African nations are considered younger partners, but not worse, not equal partners,” he said in Abuja on Friday, adding that “centuries of colonialism, slavery and exploitation still leave a painful legacy for Africa.”...

    U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. As the U.S. Supreme Court weighs the constitutionality of two anti-abortion laws in Mississippi and Texas, a substantial majority of Americans want the high court to uphold the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion and overturn the aggressive Texas abortion ban. Asked whether the high court should "uphold" Roe in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, 60% of Americans favored upholding the ruling while a meager 27% wanted it overturned. Notably, the idea of overturning Roe even divides Republicans almost evenly, with 45% saying it should be overturned while 42% want the decision upheld. In addition, 82% of Democrats want Roe upheld and 58% of independents also favor upholding the decision. Respondents delivered an even harsher judgment on the Texas abortion ban. The survey stated, "A state law in Texas authorizes private citizens anywhere in the country to sue anyone who performs or assists in an abortion in Texas after about six weeks of pregnancy. Do you think the U.S. Supreme Court should (uphold) or (reject) this law?” 65% of Americans said the high court...
    (CNN)Superman's done a lot since he first appeared in comic books 80 years ago, almost. He's saved the world more than a few times. He's died and come back to life. He dodged punches from Muhammad Ali and even faced off against White supremacists. Until this year, though, every comic iteration of Superman has been besotted with longtime love Lois Lane. But in an upcoming issue of a new "Superman" series, the Man of Steel enters into a queer relationship.The fifth issue of the DC comic series "Superman: Son of Kal-El" will confirm that the new Superman -- Jon Kent, child of Clark Kent and Lane -- is bisexual after falling for Jay Nakamura, a male reporter, DC announced this week. The "Superman: Son of Kal-El" series follows Kent as he becomes Earth's new Superman and grapples with the immense weight of his new gig. Nakamura, a bespectacled writer with a bubble-gum pink mop, first appeared in the series' third issue as a shoulder for Kent to lean on when the business of being Superman gets too rough. The...
    Epic Games / Viz Media There’s a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming Naruto crossover in Fortnite, and more details are being revealed about it by the day. He’ll be taking over the Creative Hub on November 16, which is the same day his skin comes out. In case you’ve been out of the loop, Naruto has been a poorly kept secret and it was always just a matter of time before he came to Fortnite. Of course, it was only thought that he’d be a skin, but it looks like it’ll be a whole lot more than that.

    Baker Mayfield hasn’t given the Cleveland Browns everything they were hoping for but they may have to pay him big money anyway. Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns are in a make-it-or-break-it season. The Browns are currently 5-4 and in third place in the AFC North. Entering the season, Cleveland was viewed as a Super Bowl contender with arguably the best roster on paper in the NFL. However, injuries and inconsistency have let the Browns down — particularly, Mayfield. The 26-year-old quarterback has eight touchdowns and three interceptions through eight games while playing with a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The elephant in the room is the decision looming in the Browns’ front office about whether or not it wants to make Mayfield the franchise’s quarterback. His play has been underwhelming and disappointing with the fact that he has everything that he needs around him — a strong running game, a top-three offensive line, and a coach who puts him in the best situation possible pre-snap. However, if you look at the quarterback market this offseason, it is bleak...

    Howard Schultz Workers at three Starbucks stores in the Buffalo area are seeking to unionize, and Starbucks management is going all out to try to block it. If these workers are successful, it would be a first at a corporate-owned Starbucks store, setting a precedent that raises the stakes for an anti-union company. After all, if workers in Buffalo do it, workers in other places might start getting ideas. Ballots were supposed to go out to workers on Wednesday, but on Monday, Starbucks asked the National Labor Relations Board to delay the election and, instead of following the NLRB regional office’s decision to hold three separate elections at the three stores where workers have sought union elections, hold a single union election for all Starbucks stores in the Buffalo area. Starbucks couldn’t make it more clear that it thinks it will lose a fair election in the three stores where workers have called for union representation elections, so it wants to change the rules. That move comes as part of a broader barrage of anti-union activity from Starbucks management. On Saturday,...

    Getty Images Fans are angry about the newest 'Housewives' franchise. On November 1, 2021, Andy Cohen made an appearance on “Today” where he made a big announcement: a new “Real Housewives” franchise is in the works. “Everything’s bigger in Dubai, and I couldn’t be more excited to launch Bravo’s first international ‘Housewives’ series in a city I’ve been fascinated by for years, with an outstanding group of friends as our guides,” executive producer Cohen said in a press release, according to Page Six. Cohen has not shared which ladies will be cast on the first season of the show, but it is set to air on Bravo in 2022. While fans were anticipating the launch of a new city for the show, many had been thinking it would be another major city in the United States, such as Nashville. Fans have been reacting to the news that the new series will take place in Dubai, and many are outraged at the decision — and some have vowed not to tune in when the show premieres next year. Here’s...
    As Donald Trump has consolidated power in the Republican Party this year, his slow-but-steady takeover has sometimes masked the overwhelming creep of extremism into every corner of the Republican Party. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's embrace of Herschel Walker this week as the establishment pick to win back Georgia's Senate seat is a perfect example. On the one hand, McConnell's cowardly cave to Trump's chosen candidate is such a laughable outcome for a guy who's hailed as a "master tactician" and repeatedly told reporters that his only red line for candidates was electability. While Walker is potentially electable in today's Republican Party, his open struggle with mental illness and alleged history of abusing women makes him a wounded candidate right out the gate. Whatever Walker's upsides might be, he isn't who you pick if ensuring electoral success is truly your North Star. Lurking just one layer beneath McConnell's acquiescence to Trump's demands is the unmistakable surrender of the establishment wing of the GOP to Trump. He is 100% calling the shots now about the Grand Old Party's future, and there's...
    New Jersey Republicans are outraged after an undercover video released Monday shows campaign staff for Democratic Governor Phil Murphy saying he is waiting until after reelection to release a state-wide broad vaccine mandate. Wendy Martinez, who works for Hispanic outreach for Murphy's campaign, told an undercover reporter for conservative undercover operations group Project Veritas that the governor doesn't want to reveal the plan yet because right now it's all about him winning. 'He's going to do it, but he couldn't do it before the elections because ​[​independent ​and undecided ​voters are​]​ all into all the s***, my rights, my s***,'​ Martinez said in the video. ​'​And they don't care if they kill everybody,' she continued. 'He will, but right now it is about him winning​.' She said the mandates would look similar to those in California, but said he doesn't want to announce them until after the election, suggesting it would be 'political suicide' to not wait. In the undercover stint, another campaign staffer, ​digital manager Matthew Urquijo, was asked about the governor's alleged plans for vaccine mandates.​ New Jersey...
    Getty Artists paint a mural on a a wall next to the Clydeside Expressway near Scottish Events Centre (SEC) which will be hosting the COP26 UN Climate Summit later this month, on October 13, 2021 in Glasgow, Scotland. Over two weeks in November, world leaders and national negotiators will meet in Scotland to discuss what to do about climate change. It’s a complex process that can be hard to make sense of from the outside, but it’s how international law and institutions help solve problems that no single country can fix on its own. I worked for the United Nations for several years as a law and policy adviser and have been involved in international negotiations. Here’s what’s happening behind closed doors and why people are concerned that COP26 might not meet its goals. What Is COP26?

    SAN JOSE – It’s remarkable to think how much change the Sharks have undergone over the last two-and-a-half years. Less than 10 players from the 2018-19 team that advanced to the Western Conference final are expected to be in the Sharks’ lineup Saturday night when they play the Winnipeg Jets at SAP Center. Since that 2019 series with the St. Louis Blues, which was the Sharks’ last appearance in the postseason, the coaching staff has been revamped, the goaltending’s been overhauled, team legends have left, and players’ contracts have been bought out. And the change is far from over. The next six-plus months will also carry a certain amount of upheaval, and here are our predictions for what the upcoming season will bring. TOMAS HERTL WILL BE TRADED: Sharks fans have seen franchise icons like Patrick Marleau, Joe Pavelski, and Joe Thornton leave San Jose via free agency in recent years. Hertl could be next. He is in the last season of a four-year. $22.5 million deal he signed in 2018 and is slated...
    Share this: This Election Day, there will be five proposals to amend the New York State Constitution on your ballot: Three aim to improve voting rights and the democratic process, one recognizes our fundamental right to clean air and water; and the final one will help New Yorkers quickly seek justice in NYC civil courts. There is a lot of misinformation about the intent of these ballot amendments, so I encourage you to read more about the proposals below and vote yes on all on November 2nd. Proposition One: Redistricting Amendment This Amendment will create a fairer process for determining voting districts. The last time the redistricting process was amended in 2014, Republicans manipulated the process to require a supermajority vote to approve new district lines, but only if Democrats were in power – they held themselves to a lower voting threshold to approve new lines. Additionally, under the old Republican redistricting process, incarcerated people were not counted for population purposes in their home counties, but rather in the county where their prison was located. This made the upstate population...
    Timothee Chalamet debuted his look as Willy Wonka in the upcoming prequel to "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."  It was announced in May that the "Dune" and "Call Me By Your Name" actor had signed on to portray the infamous chocolatier in a prequel film from Warner Bros. that will explore the upbringing and origins of the man who would later run a somewhat magical chocolate factory that’s particularly dangerous for misbehaving youngsters and adults alike.  On Sunday, the 25-year-old actor took to Instagram to share a pair of images from the set of the film titled "Wonka." The first shows his completely different, yet decidedly familiar, Wonka costume. He poses behind the camera with a stern look on his face while sporting a brown top hat, gold shirt and an intricate scarf, all covered by a long red jacket.  TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET TO PLAY YOUNG WILLY WONKA IN WARNER BROS.

    Trump Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh. The Supreme Court is teeing up its next round of far-right decisions, after which the far-right justices making those decisions will doubtless trot out for another round of claiming that the court is not partisan. Following its shadow docket decision effectively overturning Roe v. Wade in Texas, the court is setting up the next step by hearing arguments on a Mississippi abortion ban that could be the official, nationwide end of Roe. But that’s not all. Before it gets to the Mississippi abortion ban, the Supreme Court will consider a major gun case, its first in a decade. That case centers on a New York law requiring people to show “proper cause” as to why they need to carry guns outside their homes in order to get a permit to do so. What’s particularly disturbing about the court’s attention to that law is that this is not a new law coming under review—it’s been around for a long time, so this is unmistakably a case where what changed is not the law but the composition of the court.

    Britney Spears' upcoming conservatorship hearing could prove to be a pivotal one for the pop star. Come Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles, Judge Brenda Penny will be pressed to make major decisions on whether to keep Spears' father on as her conservator, or whether to end the conservatorship altogether. The hearing is the first to take place after the "Toxic" singer's attorney Mathew Rosengart filed documents calling to end the conservatorship altogether this fall. Britney's father, James P. Spears, otherwise known as Jamie Spears, has also requested the 13-year court order end amid a flurry of accusations from the singer that he's abused his control. Spears got her first taste of some freedom in the case when Penny allowed her to hire Rosengart in July. In the high-powered attorney's filing from earlier this week, Rosengart emphasized that it is more important to her that her father be removed, calling it a necessary first step toward her freedom and "ending the Kafkaesque nightmare imposed upon her." BRITNEY SPEARS, FIANCÉ SAM ASGHARI JOKE ABOUT HAVING A BABY Weeks ago, Britney also became...

    Asteroid 2021 SG, which flew past Earth undetected on September 16, would have been spotted by an upcoming telescope used to detect such dangerous space rocks, NASA has insisted. Known as the Near-Earth Object Surveyor space telescope (NEO Surveyor), the craft 'probably' would have spotted the asteroid on a different part of its orbit and earlier in its trajectory towards Earth, Paul Chodas, director of NASA's Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS), told DailyMail.com.  Asteroid 2021 SG whizzed past Earth at 153,000 miles on September 16, a distance of approximately half that of the moon. It was not detected until September 17.  This space rock has a diameter between 138 and 308 feet, or larger than a football field and roughly the same size as the State of Liberty. Scroll down for video   'Because of its far greater sensitivity over current asteroid surveys, NEO Surveyor probably would have detected this asteroid on a different part of the asteroid’s orbit, when the asteroid was farther away from the sun direction,' Chodas said in an email.  Asteroid 2021 SG would have been detected...

    Stephen Colbert has a bit of unsolicited advice for former President Donald Trump regarding how he can spend his upcoming weekend. For those who missed it, Trump recently released a statement defending Capitol rioters as they prepare to head back to the federal building for the "Justice for J6" rally scheduled for Saturday, September 18. “I'm all for justice for the people who attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6," said Colbert. “Have they locked up the main guy who started the whole thing yet? His name's on the tip of my tongue ― and it tastes terrible." Colbert noted Trump's stance on the upcoming rally and the reason he insists on not attending. According to the former president, the rally may be a "setup" that the media will use against him at all cost. Colbert agreed with the former president and offered him a bit of advice. “Yep. He's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't," Colbert said. “The point is, he can go to hell." Misinformation Station: Onions, Betadine, And Other Things...
    (CNN)The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled Thursday that voters in Minneapolis may decide on abolishing the police department in the upcoming municipal elections.The measure, if approved, would amend the city charter to replace the Minneapolis Police Department with a new Department of Public Safety. The DPS would employ a "comprehensive public health approach to the delivery of functions" of public safety, according to the amendment, and "could include licensed peace officers (police officers), if necessary, to fulfill its responsibilities."Essentially, the measure would also remove the police chief and the mayor's power over the agency, and would be led by a commissioner appointed by city council.The order reversed a ruling on Tuesday by Hennepin County Judge Jamie L.

    Epic Games The trend of Fortnite including a crossover skin at the end of the Battle Pass has continue with Season 8. Players who reach the end will now unlock Carnage from Marvel Comics fame.

    Modern food halls — collections of stalls, often run by independent operators, serving fast-casual food around central seating and often a bar — have been popping up around Greater Washington since Union Market proved a successful test case in Northeast D.C. Like most of the restaurant industry, the halls and their tenants had their businesses upended by the Covid-19 pandemic. The model also presented opportunities, however. Operators in food halls were already often running lean operations, and they were serving fast-casual food in takeout containers that have become ubiquitous during the coronavirus crisis. They’re also often located in larger spaces, where customers who do want to eat on-site have more room to spread out. All that has led to the D.C.-area’s food hall pipeline remaining robust despite the pandemic. While a few that were in the works have fallen by the wayside — Baltimore chef Spike Gjerde bagged his plans for a food hall and multiple restaurants at Buzzard Point,… Read the full story from the Washington Business Journal.
