    SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — Bay Area and state officials lambasted both the U.S. Supreme Court and the Texas state government after the high court declined to approve an emergency petition to stop a Texas law banning abortions six weeks or more after conception. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed the law, Senate Bill 8, in May, but it went into effect Wednesday at 12:01 a.m. local time. READ MORE: COVID: Sonoma County Correctional Lieutenant Dies From Virus Complications Late Wednesday night, the court issued a 5-4 ruling, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the court’s three liberal justices in the minority, declining to rule on the petition, which was filed by Texas abortion clinics. The court could still strike the law down in the coming days as unconstitutional, but abortion rights activists expressed skepticism that the court would do so after letting the law go into effect in the first place. The law effectively overwrites the precedent set in 1973 by the court’s ruling in the case of Roe v. Wade by preventing pregnant people from seeking an abortion after their...
    FURIOUS Meghan Markle is said to be"more determined than ever," to get the last word and speak out after Piers Morgan's Ofcom victory. This will make the divide "even deeper" between the Sussexes and the Royal Family, according to an expert. 2Meghan will feel even more 'determined' following Piers' Ofcom winCredit: The Mega Agency This comes after Meghan and Harry personally lodged a complaint against Piers to ITV and Ofcom against his outburst on Good Morning Britain. But in a huge win for freedom of speech, Ofcom said that restricting Piers Morgan's strong views would be an "unwarranted and chilling restriction on freedom of expression." Despite Meghan's silence so far, the Sussexes are known for responding to scandals through their pals, including Gayle King and Omid Scobie. Speaking about Meghan's next move, writer and broadcaster Adam Helliker told The Sun Online: "I think she’s going to feel more determined and it will up her game so to speak.  "She will convince all her followers that this is how Britain operates.

    For almost a quarter of a century, August 31 has been a date of quiet reflection for the family and friends of Princess Diana — but not this year. Yesterday, on the 24th anniversary of the princess’s tragic death in a Paris car crash, came the sound of a noisy intrusion from far away California. It was the arrival in the bookshops of an updated version of the Harry and Meghan biography Finding Freedom. With it came a jarring reminder of how no issue in their supremely cossetted, opulent lives, however petty, can be allowed to rest, nor any criticism go unchallenged. And while the couple themselves surely had no part in choosing this significant royal anniversary for its publication, the book will do nothing to erase the notion that they possess an outsize sense of victimhood. The new chapter of the Harry and Meghan biography Finding Freedom arrived on 24th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death. Pictured: Prince Harry and Meghan in March 2020 Only one new chapter to the book — styled here as an ‘epilogue’ — has...
    08/20/2021 at 7:18 PM CEST Club Atlético Osasuna presented the agreement with CVC at a press conference this FridayAn agreement that the Rojilla entity supported in the La Liga Assembly held last week, which confirmed the deal with the investment fund in exchange for an injection of 2,200 million euros, to be distributed among the participating clubs. The president of the club, Luis Sabalza, has announced that, although from his position of responsibility he defended the agreement, the club’s Assembly will have the last word and will decide whether or not to form part of the agreement with CVC. “I cast the vote under my responsibility as president and under the responsibility of this board of directors, which logically voted what it considers to be the most beneficial for Osasuna and its future. That it is doubted hurts my soul. And from the outset we condition it to the opinion of the Assembly. If 38 out of 42 clubs voted the same for something, it will be. Driving in the opposite direction is not...

    By Jake Coyle | Associated Press In the opening moments of the HBO documentary “Tina,” Tina Turner doesn’t just command the stage as she’s belting out “Ask Me How I Feel” for a giant stadium of fans. With heels stomping and her hair waving, she owns the stage to such a degree that you half expect bank lenders to materialize by the footlights to sign over the deed. Few if any could ever match Turner as a performer. Both regal and raw, she was one of the supreme vocalists of the 20th century — a model of inspiration for Mick Jagger and countless others. And, at least in scenes like that 1980s concert, her power was a testament of reclamation. As a newly solo singer removed from more than a decade of abuse, she was taking back her life, her story, her voice. Her proper debut, she says, came not as a teenager with Ike Turner, but as a 50-year-old woman finally on her own. The story has rightly taken on the shine of legend. The remarkable arc of Turner’s...
    In post-#MeToo Hollywood, the industry has had to reckon with the many talented actresses who were blacklisted by powerful men for being “difficult.” That includes Sean Young, the intelligent, forthright beauty known for her roles in ’80s and ’90s films “Blade Runner,” “Stripes,” “No Way Out” and “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.” Actor James Woods attends the “White House Down” premiere party at The Frick Collection on Tuesday, June 25, 2013 in New York. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP)  In a new interview about “surviving Hollywood’s toxic men,” Young explains how she knows she always made “men nervous.” The 61-year-old also believes that her career was sabotaged by a handful of “powerful, terribly vindictive men.” The names she mentions to the Daily Beast include: Ridley Scott, Warren Beatty, Steven Spielberg and Oliver Stone. But Young saves most of her ire for James Woods, the once highly regarded Academy Award-nominated actor who has more recently become infamous for being a pro-Donald Trump “political troll and a maniac on Twitter” (in the words of “Family Guy” in 2019.) “He actually was successful in destroying...
    “Some people gravitate toward ‘No,’ ” says Jennifer Garner in the asinine Netflix movie “Yes Day.” “Some people lean toward ‘Yes.’ ” Her character leans toward dumb. She plays a hard-line mother named Allison, who staunchly refuses to let her three whiny children do much of anything. Deciding she’s gone too far, Allison crazily institutes a “Yes Day,” in which her brood calls all the shots and the woman and her husband must go along with their schemes. Those headache-inducing indulgences include a water balloon war, a bubble-filled rager in the living room and devouring a giant platter of ice cream. The adults, who are biologically and financially responsible for their offspring’s existence, are forced to relent to their every whim. You’ve got to be kidding me. You want us to tell kids “yes” more? Young people today may be more coddled than in the past and, true, their parents hover over them like the drones they so desperately crave. But the absolute last words they need to hear more of right now are “yes,” “ja,” “si” or “oui.”...
    PAPA John's former CEO John Schnatter said he has been working for almost the last two years to ensure he removes all racist language from his vocabulary. Schnatter, the founder of Papa John's, stepped down from his chairman position in 2018 after he admitted to using the n-word during a conference call. 4Ex-Papa John's CEO John Schnatter said he has been working to remove the n-word from his vocabularyCredit: OAN 4In an interview with OANN, he said he's been working for the last 20 months to remove the n-word from his speech after he was ousted from the companyCredit: Getty - Contributor During an interview on OANN, Schnatter said the pizza conglomerate's board painted him "as a racist" even though "they know he's not a racist." "State of shock. Unbelievable," Schnatter said when asked about his ouster. "I couldn't understand." "Again you have a public board that paints its chairman complicit, passive or active," he said.

    The founder and former CEO of Papa John's Pizza has denied allegations he's a racist while claiming he's been working for the last '20 months' to eradicate the N-word from his vocabulary. John Schnatter resigned as CEO the pizza chain in 2018 after he blamed NFL players kneeling for the national anthem on dwindling sales figures. He also stepped down as board chairman six months later after he was recorded using the N-word while attempting to downplay the remarks during a company conference call. Schnatter has previously accused other members of Papa John's board of conspiring to force him out of the CEO role, and speaking to OAN on Monday he reiterated those allegations, saying his colleagues unfairly 'painted' him as a racist. 'State of shock. Unbelievable - I just couldn't understand it,' he said. 'You have a public board who paints its chairman … paints the founder as a racist, they know he’s not a racist – it’s just unbelievable.' Schnatter then said he used to sit in bed wondering his peers managed to disparage his name. He then...
    ROME — Pope Francis urged Iraqi Christians in the beleaguered town of Qaraqosh Sunday to hold on to their hope in the ultimate triumph of Jesus Christ. With “great sadness,” we look around and see signs of the destructive power of violence, hatred and war, the pope told Christians gathered in the Church of the Immaculate Conception. “How much has been torn down! How much needs to be rebuilt!” Qaraqosh, Iraq’s largest Christian town, was invaded by the Islamic State terror group in August 2014 and months after its liberation in 2017 was still in ruins from the shelling and deliberate destruction of historic Christian sites. “Our gathering here today shows that terrorism and death never have the last word,” the pontiff told his hearers. “The last word belongs to God and to his Son, the conqueror of sin and death.” “Even amid the ravages of terrorism and war, we can see, with the eyes of faith, the triumph of life over death,” the pope continued. “You have before you the example of your fathers and mothers in faith, who...

    (CNN)Ruth Bader Ginsburg was already the subject of a splendid documentary in CNN Films' "RBG" and a dramatic movie ("On the Basis of Sex"), both released before her death last year. But "Ruth - Justice Ginsburg in Her Own Words" serves as a fitting companion, drawing heavily from Ginsburg speeches, appearances and interviews, garnished by fond reflections from those who knew her.Perhaps the most striking image is a shot of Ginsburg's 1956 law-school class, zeroing in on her surrounded by male peers. At that point, she tells a visiting class, a legal career "seemed to me an area in which women were not yet wanted." Later, she addresses the question of whether she dreamed of being elevated to the Supreme Court by saying, "You don't aspire to something that is such a remote responsibility."Ginsburg recalls suffering from "three strikes" when she began applying for jobs at elite law firms -- being a woman, Jewish, and the mother of a young child. Even before that she was "very sensitized to discrimination," she explains, growing up in a Jewish family during World...
    New York : In a conference prior to the end of the Copa del Rey, Ronald Koeman talked about the possibility that Lionel messi can participate and said that the last word will be the Argentine. Messi not 100% found, after the discomfort in the thigh that he felt a few days ago, during the game against Granada in which he had to go out of exchange; Since then he has not been able to line up with the Catalans and could miss the final of the Copa del Rey that Barcelona will play this Sunday against Athletic Bilbao; they are however, his DT is optimistic and thinks that “La Pulga” could participate. “Leo trained individually yesterday and today he will do it with the group. We will see if it can be in the final or not. In the end always the player himself has the last word and we will wait for tomorrow, to see how his body reacts but we are hopeful that he may be in the game“, He told the media conference this Saturday....
    Q: I see you are going to cover the “young lady” subject one more time, so I thought I would send my comment. It’s a shame that people get upset when addressed with innocent words that they don’t like. Whatever happened to the “sticks and stones” story we were taught as kids? Jeff Hacker, Palo Alto Like Mr. Roadshow’s Facebook page for more questions and answers about Bay Area roads, freeways and commuting. A: Never did I think referring to a driver in her 70s as a “young lady” would dominate my inbox for days, but several women raised their concerns, which took Roadshow onto an unexpected detour. Q: You have been battered by people for calling older women “young lady,” which I feel is gracious. In this time, we all need more kindness and grace. I am an older woman and have heard this term used toward me. No problem. Cindy Fischer, Los Altos A: Thanks for offering your perspective. Q: I am pushing 78 and anytime anyone addresses me as “young man,” my response is, “Emphasis on...
    For the past seven years, an American writer and artist has been writing a story in the snow — one word at a time, weather permitting. Every time there has been snowfall in New York City since January of 2014, Shelley Jackson, 57, has gone outside and drawn a word in the ground. She has then posted a picture of the new word on Instagram, stringing them together one by one to share a poetic passage about different kinds of snow.    Stormy story: American author Shelley Jackson, 57, has spent spent seven years writing a story in the snow No snow angels here!

    Los Angeles (CNN Business)The Warner Bros. decision to make its 2021 movies available on streaming service HBO Max the same day they hit theaters comes after a long stretch that offered clarity on what studios want in terms of shrinking release windows, and what theaters want (or don't) to protect their business.Both sides are still guessing at what consumers want -- a mood made even more difficult to read by the pandemic, and perhaps especially, how they'll feel once there's genuine light at the end of that tunnel.The AT&T (T)-owned studio -- part of WarnerMedia, as is CNN -- jolted the entertainment industry by announcing its 2021 plans on Thursday. And it follows skirmishes between other studios and theater chains, including Disney (DIS) and Comcast (CCZ) unit Universal over "Trolls World Tour," since coronavirus derailed theatrical release schedules earlier this year.Studios have long sought greater flexibility in terms of releasing movies to digital and on-demand platforms, while theaters want to preserve their exclusivity for as long as possible. The pandemic's impact has clearly given the former leverage in shrinking the...
    During the opening monologue of his Tuesday broadcast, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson, host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” slammed so-called critical race theory, noting that President Donald Trump has issued an executive order halting the instruction of it. Carlson argued critical race theory was intended to serve “incompetent elites” and posed risks when implemented in government agencies. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: On Friday, the President issued an executive order forcing federal agencies to halt mandatory indoctrination on something called critical race theory. What exactly is critical race theory? Well, if you work in the government or in Corporate America, you probably already know what it is. It’s when your employer hires a lavishly paid consultant to tell half the room they’re damned to hell because of the way they were born. In a word, critical race theory is racism. More broadly, it is the latest attempt by the most privileged people in our society, the celebrities, politicians, college professors, and talk show hosts to disclaim the blame for their mismanagement of our country on to the people below them. Hey,...
    There’s also a plethora of attack options which are also coded by type. It gets confusing pretty quickly and the tutorial does a poor job of explaining it well, to the point where I was almost done with the game before it actually clicked.  You even gain experience points and level up, with additional abilities you can purchase to assist your verbal sparring. When I played Undertale I was stymied by the bullet hell monster attacks, to the point where I needed to restart the entire game and never actually finished. In Last Word , the mechanics still manage to honor the more strategic and thoughtful turn-based menu systems I’ve come to appreciate (and rely on) in RPGs but yet feel incredibly new.  The contemporary setting is also a nice change as well, and probably necessary, given that the debate-based battles mechanics are more at home in the parlor of a fine 20th century manor than they would be in a medieval castle. It’s also blissfully short — only six hours — which means if you love RPGs but often...
    A black man who was shot inside Seattle's Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) last week claims it was a 'hate crime' carried out by a group of white supremacists who dropped the N-word before opening fire on him.   DeJuan Young, 33, was shot in the arm on Saturday amid a weekend of gun violence in the police-free zone, also known as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), that left two people wounded and a 19-year-old man dead.  Speaking from his hospital bed at Harborview Medical Center, Young told local news station KIRO 7, he had been fleeing the area after hearing gunshots ring out when a group of four men approached him and shot him.  Scroll down for video  Speaking from his hospital bed at Harborview Medical Center, DeJuan Young said he was shot in the arm after a group of KKK or Proud Boys members opened fire on him at the CHAZ last week Young, 33, said he was fleeing the area when he was approached by the group of men.
