    A former Ph.D student is suing Princeton University for emotional distress after a 2011 hearing on her alleged rape devolved into 'victim blaming' and found no evidence to back up her claim, causing her to drop out. The student says she was raped by a classmate in December 2010. She was able to sue under a 2019 law signed by Gov. Phil Murphy that did away with the statute of limitations on rape claims for a period of two years ending on Tuesday. She says the Nobel Prize-winning professor who represented her accuser asked about her sexual history and pressed her on why she baked brownies for her alleged rapist if she didn't want him to think she was interested. 'I don’t mean to get too personal... (tell us) how many boyfriends you’ve had?' the professor allegedly asked her. The victim, the accused student and the professor are not named in the lawsuit, according to NJ.com.  Princeton says the issue was handled 'in accordance with the university disciplinary procedures' of the time, which have since changed after a 2014 agreement...
    New York (CNN Business)When PayPal split off from eBay a few years ago, eBay was considered to be the less exciting company. But that's certainly not the case on Wall Street this year. Shares of eBay (EBAY) have surged more than 30% this year, while PayPal (PYPL) has stumbled more than 20%. The companies have had a wildly different 2021. PayPal, which now lets people buy and sell bitcoin, has been subject to the volatility in the cryptocurrency market and concerns about its rumored plan to offer to buy Pinterest (PINS), though PayPal later said no deal was happening. Ebay, by contrast, has made a big comeback during the pandemic thanks to bets on several rapidly growing parts of the digital commerce market — namely sneakers, sports memorabilia and car parts.CNN Business spoke to eBay CEO Jamie Iannone, who rejoined eBay in April 2020, about the firm's transformation into an enthusiast-focused retailer.

    VIDEO4:2504:25Enron's key figures 20 years laterThe News with Shepard Smith The sudden collapse of Enron, culminating in what was then the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history on Dec. 2, 2001, changed thousands of lives, damaged investor confidence to the core and made household names out of previously obscure businesspeople. Many were dragged in front of congressional committees and berated in seemingly endless hearings. Some were later indicted, arrested and paraded in front of cameras in handcuffs as part of a national catharsis. Twenty years later, the last of the Enron defendants have completed their prison sentences, paid their restitution and have sought to move on with their lives. Even now, few of the dozen or so people we spoke to for this article were willing to speak publicly about their time at Enron. Several said they saw "no upside" in re-associating themselves with the company, preferring instead to keep a low profile. More than one said that even two decades later, recounting the experience is deeply emotional. One former executive said he would need time to "decompress" after an hour-and-20-minute...
    Cardiothoracic surgeon and television host Dr. Mehmet Oz spoke about his recently-declared candidacy for United States Senate in Pennsylvania during an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity on Tuesday. Oz, who went to grade school in President Biden's hometown of Wilmington, Del., and who has lived for many years in New Jersey before moving back to Pennsylvania last year, announced earlier Tuesday he will seek to replace retiring Republican Sen. Patrick J. Toomey. Oz told "Hannity" that as the son of Turkish immigrants who was afforded "unparalleled opportunities" by the United States to become the successful doctor and television personality that he is, "it is time to repay my debt." "America is in crisis, that’s not news, our values are under attack – so I want to serve America in its time of need," said Oz, adding that Pennsylvanians deserve better solutions to crises from their elected leaders than they are currently afforded. Oz spoke about his medical expertise and how he recognized that the now long-surpassed "two weeks to stop the spread" socioeconomic restriction period placed on Pennsylvanians and...
    An explosion of ocean life two billion years ago helped form the mountains on Earth, including the iconic Himalayas, a new study reveals. Scientists at the University of Aberdeen found that after a dramatic rise in oxygen about 2.3 billion years ago, an abundance of nutrients filled the seas that resulted in cyanobacteria, or plankton. Once the large amounts of plankton died, they fell to the ocean floor and formed graphite, which played a crucial role in lubricating the breakage of rocks into slabs. This allowed the giant slabs to move on top of each other to form mountains over the next millions of years. Scroll down for video  An explosion of ocean life two billion years ago helped form the mountains on Earth, including the iconic Himalayas (pictured), a new study reveals Professor John Parnell, who led the research, said in a statement: 'Mountains are an essential part of the landscape, but big mountain chains only formed half-way through Earth's history, about two billion years ago. 'The geological record for this period includes evidence of an abundance of organic...
    It is with great pride that I can say I am finally a homeowner—pride for all of the obvious reasons, from the opportunity to build generational wealth to simply having a place for my family to retreat to in hard times generation after generation. But as rewarding a feeling as homeownership is, the housing market and my own sliver of the larger story have dimmed my hope for the future. Journalist after journalist has been reporting on shortages in housing inventory pushing the dream of homeownership out of reach for many Americans.  “My father was an electrician and my mother was a home healthcare worker,” New York writer and author Jelani Cobb tweeted earlier this month. “It occurred to me recently that by the time I made enough to purchase the home they raised me in I had a doctorate, tenure and had written several books. We’ve effectively turned housing into a luxury.” The tweet attracted the attention of Ada Ferrer, a Cuban American historian and professor at New York University. “My mom a seamstress, my father a short-order cook, never owned a home,” she tweeted in...

    Fire-ravaged Notre Dame cathedral is being turned into a 'woke theme park' with renovators adding a 'discovery trail' and 'Christianity for dummies' exhibits, critics have claimed. Under new plans, confessional boxes, altars and classical sculptures will be scrapped for trendy art murals, with sound and lighting effects creating 'emotional spaces.' A 'discovery trail' will lead visitors through various chapels, with an emphasis on Africa and Asia, and scripture will be beamed onto the walls in various languages, including Mandarin. One of the sanctuaries will even be dedicated to the environment. Maurice Culot, an award-winning Paris-based architect, told The Telegraph: 'It's as if Disney were entering Notre-Dame.  'What they are proposing to do to Notre-Dame would never be done to Westminster Abbey or Saint Peter's in Rome. It's a kind of theme park and very childish and trivial given the grandeur of the place.'   Under new proposals (some of the plans for the modern art murals pictured above) confessional boxes, altars and classical sculptures will be scrapped for trendy art murals, with sound and lighting effects creating 'emotional spaces.'

    Dripping in glamour and treachery and based on a true-life story, the House Of Gucci has got both film and fashion fans buzzing. From a virginal bridal gown to sizzling skiwear, the film has its leading lady — Lady Gaga as jealous Patrizia Reggiani, who hired a hitman to kill her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci — tripping a veritable catwalk of style across the big screen. Ahead of today's release, Oscar-winning British costume designer Janty Yates, exclusively reveals the secrets that turned Lady Gaga into 'the Black Widow' ... 1: SHORT CUT TO STYLE First impressions count, and the dress worn by Patrizia when she met Maurizio Gucci at a party is a belter, based on a pink dress the real-life Patrizia wore. It was made using duchess satin and took six weeks to fit at the hands of Janty's costume cutter, Dominic Young. Originally the gown was much longer — rising by 18 in at Ridley Scott's request. Janty says: 'We kept five camera crews waiting that day, luckily LG [as she calls Lady Gaga] had her man with her...
    Getty Tyrese Maxey, left, of the Sixers While much of the NBA world has been focused on what the Sixers will or will not do with star holdout guard Ben Simmons , Philly fans who tired of the topic long ago have been privy to something far more interesting: The growth of Tyrese Maxey. While his numbers speak to his breakout season—18.4 points, 4.6 assists, 52.4% shooting, 42.1% shooting—what’s been most noticeably different about him lately is the way he carries himself. He’s a budding star. And he knows it. That’s what one of his mentors, Georges Niang, pointed out this weekend after Maxey was again the stellar bright spot on what’s been a very difficult Western road trip, scoring 28 points with nine assists in the Saturday loss to Portland. “His development has happened very quick,” Niang said, “and he’s definitely turned into a killer.” Play Does Tyrese Maxey have the potential to be like Tony Parker down the road? | Sixers Pregame LiveAmy Fadool, Jim Lynam and Marc Jackson break down Tyrese Maxey's impressive second-year...
    The police chief of Aurora implored parents to 'take guns away from their kids' after three 16-year-olds were charged for attempted murder following a firefight that injured three students in a school parking lot - the second drive-by in a school zone there within a week.  One of the shooters was apprehended hours after the Friday shooting at Hinkley High School in Colorado after he sought medical attention for injuries sustained in the shoot out. Two other teens - a 17-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy - were hospitalized following the incident.  On Sunday, two more 16-year-olds were arrested, one in Aurora and the other from the nearby town of Parker.  All three suspects are being held on charges of first-degree attempted murder.  A motive has not been revealed in the case, and Aurora Police Department is still searching for an unspecified number of additional people involved in the attack, and are offering $2,000 for tips leading to their arrests.  Earlier last week, six teens aged 14 to 18 were struck by bullets shot by 'multiple gunmen' at Nome Park,...
    Ron Armstrong’s battle against COVID-19 restrictions has made him one of the best-known anti-mask, anti-vaccine, anti-quarantine figures in Michigan. It’s also turned into a financial bonanza for his company, which makes tabletop displays and has taken in tens of thousands of dollars from the activist groups he created. In addition, two political candidates who were endorsed by his organizations have paid Armstrong’s company thousands more. Armstrong’s spokesman noted he’s broken no laws, but a good-government watchdog says the whole thing stinks. “This speaks to the gaping holes in Michigan's campaign finance law,” said Simon Schuster, executive director of the nonpartisan Michigan Campaign Finance Network. “As a result we see people can use their positions of power or place in political movements to benefit themselves.”
    During the first year of our marriage, I left Peter O’Toole.  God knows, I had cause: when he drank, he’d sometimes disappear for days at a time.  At home, he’d criticise me constantly, usually for not having been a virgin bride. With my confidence in shreds, I’d finally fled to friends with our baby daughter, Kate.  Several weeks later, O’Toole turned up one day to drive me to the theatre where I was rehearsing. It was odd to be sitting so close to him again.  Reluctantly, I acknowledged to myself that I loved him as passionately as ever. Parting for good was inconceivable. Dame Sian Phillips with her then-husband Peter O'Toole. The pair were married for 18 years and had two daughters before their split in 1977. Wary and faintly disbelieving, I posed with him for magazine and newspaper features.  He’d just been offered the lead role in David Lean’s film, Lawrence Of Arabia, and was soon to depart for the Middle East to live with the Bedouin, learn some Arabic and get fit.  His alcohol consumption reduced drastically; it would...
    A MAN has revealed how he and his two sisters turned a double-decker bus into a luxury home - which he is now renting out on Airbnb. The McCarthy siblings - Anna, 28, Thomas, 26, and Rachel, 24, - undertook the quirky renovation project after buying the bus for $2,500 in September 2020. 20A trio of siblings bought an old double-decker bus and transformed itCredit: Jam Press 20They turned it into an AirbnbCredit: Jam Press The trio, who are all farmers from Cork, Ireland, say they were inspired by a friend who completed a similar project with a single-story bus but they were delighted to have twice as much space.

    New York, NY (CNN)Subway co-founder Peter Buck, who turned his initial investment of $1,000 into more than a billion dollars, died Thursday at the age of 90, the company confirmed. With more than 40,000 locations worldwide, Subway today is now the world's largest submarine sandwich chain. Buck, the company's last surviving founder, left a net worth of $1.7 billion, according to Forbes. "We are deeply saddened by the passing of one of Subway's founders, Dr. Peter Buck. He was a shining example of a dedicated, hands-on leader, and an integral member of the Subway family," John Chidsey, CEO of Subway, said in a statement. Subway is making the biggest menu change in its historyIn 1965, Buck gave his family friend, Fred DeLuca, the idea to open a submarine sandwich shop to help the then-college freshman make money for college. Buck, who was a nuclear physicist, provided an initial investment of $1,000, and "Pete's Super Submarines" opened in Bridgeport, Connecticut. By 1974, the two owned and operated 16 shops in Connecticut and then began franchising them. According to the food...

    Adam Pontosi / Ronald Martinez While the Angelino derby may not seem as inevitable as it did a few months ago, the rivalry between the Lakers and the Clippers is still relevant. With a statement that annoyed LeBron James and his teammates, a former supporter of Tyrone Lowe took responsibility for remembering it! With an almost identical record at this point in the season, both owners are neck and neck in the Western Conference rankings.

    NEW Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard believes his time away from the limelight at the start of his coaching career was invaluable in preparing him for the demands of top-level management. Speaking publicly for the first time as Villa boss, the Liverpool legend told VillaTV he felt it was important not to immediately jump into a high-profile managerial job after hanging up his boots five years ago. 1Gerrard met expectations at Rangers by leading them to their 55th top flight titleCredit: EPA The former England midfielder, 41, said: “I think a lot of players, from what I’ve seen, think maybe because they’ve had a decent playing career they automatically think they can roll into a coaching role or a managerial role. "And they think that all of a sudden they’re going to be really good at it. “For me, it was about starting from the beginning and putting the blocks in place. "I wanted to really learn from the start, going away from the cameras initially, and taking the youth team at Liverpool. They were a big support...
    One of France's leading culture experts is quitting Paris to live in the countryside, because the capital has become a 'rubbish bin' under its controversial socialist mayor. Stéphane Bern, 58, who was hired by Emmanuel Macron as a cultural adviser, said the city has now become a hotbed of violence and ugliness following a series of unpopular reforms by Anne Hidalgo. The left-wing mayor has overseen a series of sweeping reforms to make the city 'greener' including concrete cycle lanes, plans to turn the Champs-Elysées into a garden, and the removal of traditional 19th century benches because they are 'sexist', all while failing to clean up the streets. Hidalgo, who is running for president next year, has also attracted ire for pushing through plans for a controversial new £600million glass skyscraper likened to a 'giant piece of brie' that critics say will ruin the Paris skyline. Bern, a journalist and TV presenter, has now vowed to move from his flat in Pigalle, a Paris neighbourhood known for its nightlife and home to the Moulin Rouge, to Perche in northern France....

    Progressive policies that hurt America are even driving more Hispanic Americans to participate in the democratic process — and cast their vote for Republicans. Astrid Gamaz told Telemundo that she was previously not involved in politics. But this year, she actively supported Youngkin.

These days, my kitchen is my favorite place to be. I have a pan I love, and I’ve really been honing in on some of my favorite recipes. But if there’s one thing I didn’t enjoy, it was the prep work.

    Climate activist, Greta Thunberg speaks during the Fridays For Future march on November 5, 2021 in Glasgow, Scotland.Christopher Furlong | Getty Images News | Getty Images GLASGOW, Scotland — Climate activist Greta Thunberg said Friday that the COP26 climate summit is a failure, lambasting the U.N.-brokered talks for turning into a public relations exercise. "It is not a secret that COP26 is a failure. It should be obvious that we cannot solve the crisis with the same methods that got us into it in the first place," Thunberg said. "The COP has turned into a PR event, where leaders are giving beautiful speeches and announcing fancy commitments and targets, while behind the curtains governments of the Global North countries are still refusing to take any drastic climate action." She was speaking on stage shortly after a strike organized by "Fridays For Future" saw thousands march 1.6 miles from Kelvingrove Park to George Park in Glasgow's city center. The U.K. is presiding over COP26 through to Nov. 12, a major climate event regarded as one of the most important diplomatic meetings in...

    (CNN)The Atacama Desert in Chile has been used as a way to simulate alien environments, like Mars on Earth. Now, researchers believe it was the site of an ancient comet explosion intense enough to create giant slabs of silicate glass, according to a new study. The research published Tuesday in the journal Geology. About 12,000 years ago, intense heat turned Atacama's sandy soil into vast areas of glass stretching for 46.6 miles (75 kilometers), but researchers weren't sure what caused such a drastic change. The Atacama Desert is the driest desert region on Earth, with incredibly little moisture or precipitation. The fragmented desert glass contains tiny mineral fragments that are often found in meteorites that land on Earth. The minerals found in this glass matched up with particles collected by NASA's Stardust mission, which sampled a comet known as Wild 2. The researchers are confident that the minerals found in the Chilean desert are what's left after a comet similar to Wild 2 exploded over the sands and melted them.

    (CNN)Election night in America has turned into the electoral version of the Super Bowl. You know what I'm talking about -- we order pizza, make popcorn and wait for a winner to be projected every presidential contest. Tonight in Virginia's gubernatorial contest, the stakes won't be nearly as high it as they were last year, but election nerds will do the same, with this contest potentially signaling a lot about the political environment heading into the 2022 midterms. In part because of laws requiring absentee ballots to be preprocessed long before Election Day, we're hopeful for a relatively quick count.Last year, it didn't happen. Fox News poll aside, Virginias gubernatorial race is too close to callAs we all know, election night 2020 turned into election week, and a winner (now President Joe Biden) wasn't projected until nearly noon on Saturday.

    Libya’s bloody civil war is spilling into American courts and, as the protagonists gear up for a courtroom fight over war crimes, what was once a conflict remote from American politics is taking on a decidedly MAGA tone. On the surface, the courtroom battle pits Khalifa Haftar, the warlord seeking to topple Libya’s internationally recognized government, against civilians who say Haftar’s forces attacked and tortured, killed, and mutilated their civilian family members in violation of U.S. and international humanitarian law. But while the brutal civil war itself may seem remote from American politics, the domestic players aren’t entirely unfamiliar. Representing Haftar is Jesse Binnall, a top Trump attorney who’s had plenty of experience handling lawsuits related to a different kind of insurrection—the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. And his Libyan client, an authoritarian strongman and Trump favorite trying to overthrow the government, is making an argument familiar to many of those currently suing former President Donald Trump: He’s simply too important to face his critics in court. At the center of the suit is whether Haftar, who’s currently waging a civil...

Tim Walz, then-Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka and House Speaker Melissa Hortman.When they announced the plan to give $250 million to frontline pandemic workers, Minnesota legislative leaders sounded as though the hard part had been completed. Even though providing such bonus checks was one of just four allowed uses of the money allocated under the federal government’s American Rescue Plan, only a handful of states had even tried to give money directly to workers. Minnesota was going to be one of them. The agreement among Gov.

    These days, if I’m not at my makeshift desk working, I’m buried beneath my new comforter. The Lightweight Luxe Goose Down Comforter from Quince has single-handedly changed my outlook on down comforters. I always thought that a down comforter was stuffy, made to keep you insulated and warm the way a down sleeping bag does. But this comforter has opened my eyes to the lofty, breathable side of down. Lightweight Luxe Goose Down ComforterBuy at Quince$190 French Linen Duvet Cover SetBuy at Quince$170 The comforter is lightweight, made with 700 fill power European white goose down (Responsible Down Standard Certified), and features sewn through construction. This type of construction isn’t as warm as baffled (think how a puffer coat is built), but that’s a good thing. That means it’s perfect for all-seasons or just for hot sleepers, since the down doesn’t cover the entire comforter. I also opted to add a duvet cover as well, though you may not need it. I found the sateen material of the comforter to be a bit loud, but once I fall asleep, I...

Reggie suddenly had a seizure while on holiday with his family in June and was rushed to hospital, where he suffered constant fits and spent three weeks in intensive care.

    The new Ford Bronco drives like a tank. At least one of them does. Tucci Hot Rods built a Bronco with tank-style tracks. (Fordd) Tucci Hot Rods of Marcy, N.Y., replaced a Bronco's wheels and tires with Mattracks tank-style tracks to turn it into the ultimate snow sports machine. The custom is one of four that Ford commissioned shops to build for the upcoming SEMA car show in Las Vegas. Along with the snow shoes, which get their power from the Bronco's turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine via a 7-speed manual transmission, Tucci added a snowboard rack, exterior lighting, winch and retractable running boards. The Bronco RTR Fun-Runner is filled with the Vaughn Gittin Jr's Fun-Haver spirit.

    So it looks like 1,000 and out for the Geordie loathed in his home town. Despite an £8million pay-off, Steve Bruce will need a lengthy break to recover from this chastening 27-month spell at Newcastle. 5Steve Bruce has been sacked as Newcastle manager following the £300million takeoverCredit: Getty Images - Getty Having FINALLY been put out of his misery yesterday morning, Bruce didn’t rule out a return to the dug-out. But aged 60 and set for life, does he really need the aggro anymore? He said it was hard “to read people constantly saying I would fail, that I was useless, a fat waste of space, a stupid, tactically inept cabbage-head. And it was from day one.” Given the relentless flak he received, it’s hard not to have sympathy for Bruce on a personal level. On a professional level, however, you only had to watch his side on a regular basis to understand where that anger came from. Following Sir Bobby Robson’s departure in 2004, the then-Birmingham City manager turned down his “dream job”. FREE BETS: GET OVER £2,000 IN...

    In just over three minutes, People's Policy Project founder Matt Bruenig on Tuesday explained in a video posted to social media how a paid leave proposal put forward in the U.S. House would be a "disaster" for working families—and a boon for the private insurance industry. Produced by the outlet More Perfect Union, the video describes how House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.)—who counts the insurance industry as his top contributor since taking office more than three decades ago—put forward a plan to replace President Joe Biden's straightforward proposal to offer 12 weeks of paid leave to new parents through the Social Security Administration (SSA). The Democrat Gutting Biden's Paid Family Leave Plan www.youtube.com Under Biden's plan, the SSA would provide new parents with cash benefits to cover a portion of their wages for 12 weeks after the birth or adoption of a child—a modest proposal considering the amount of paid time off parents have in other wealthy countries. Ten countries—including Estonia, Japan, Lithuania, and Norway—offer more than a year of paid...
    Monday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends First,” Rep. Van Taylor (R-TX) slammed President Joe Biden for his “outrageous” border policy. According to Taylor, Biden “has turned the Border Patrol into border processing” through his “terrible decisions.” “It’s really just incredible. The Biden administration created this crisis through terrible decisions. I mean, you know, day one, President Biden said, ‘Hey, we are not building the wall, we are going to stop deporting people using Title 42,’ and furthermore, he said, ‘We are going to end the Remain in Mexico policy.’ And those decisions made on the first day of his administration have created a tremendous crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border. I was there last week, and it’s outrageous the lack of security that he has created, the humanitarian crisis, the health care crisis. He has turned the Border Patrol into border processing.” Taylor highlighted the influx of crime, drugs and COVID-19-positive immigrants entering the country due to the Biden administration. “It’s absolutely staggering what a bad job the Biden administration is doing,” he lamented. “And this is just, you know, barely...
    DOG the Bounty Hunter has a theory that Brian Laundrie "built himself" into a murderer by reading "demonic" serial killer books. The TV star, real name Duane Chapman, told The Sun in an exclusive interview that he thinks the "dark side" books Laundrie read as a child could have influenced him to become a "killer." 4Dog said Laundrie 'made himself' into a killerCredit: John Chapple - Commissioned by The Sun US digital edition He said of the books: "This kid Brian has taken those books, obviously, to heart. "And this is what happens when your kid is looking at those kinds of things, catches on, and it's demons, and it's blood, and it's this and it's that, look what that led to. "He overnight just didn't become a killer. A killer is made, and he is built to be a killer. "He built himself to be that by looking at that kind of, let's say, the dark side stuff, and I call it what it was, demonic. There's pictures of demons all over it." He also reiterated his theory that Brian...
    Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Thursday on MSNBC’s “All In” that “the Republican Party has turned into an autocratic cult” of the former President Donald Trump. Anchor Chris Hayes said, “I don’t know if you got a chance to see the opening monologue tonight as you were getting wired up there, but we played some sound of a pledge of allegiance at that rally for the Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, in which the flag was brought out and noted that this was the flag present on January 6 at the, quote, ‘peaceful rally.’ I just wonder what goes through your mind? What’s your reaction to seeing that brought out as a sort of object of reverence in a Republican rally that the president calls into for a current Republican candidate?” Schiff said, “Well, shock on the one hand but on the other hand, it’s just as you say, the Republican Party has turned into an autocratic cult of the former president. It is no longer wedded to even the idea of democracy. This is something that I write about in...
    Blockbuster films might have notably big budgets - but sometimes, due to resource, ease or time constraints, props have to be turned around quickly. And the fastest way to do that appears to be by purchasing everyday products and giving them a little makeover. Social media users from around the world have revealed online the gadgets used in famous sci-fi films and TV shows that are actually just seemingly store-bought items. Collated by Why These?, the repurposed items include Nike Air Jordan 6 trainers that were apparently turned into Batman's hefty-looking shoes in Batman Returns (1992). Here, FEMAIL reveals some of the best examples...  Collated by Why These?, the repurposed items include Nike Air Jordan 6 trainers that were apparently turned into Batman's hefty-looking shoes in Batman Returns (1992)  Netflix's Lost in Space seemingly used a foam vest when kitting out the military crew members in armour  In Alias (2001), Jennifer Garner uses a high-tech utensil to cut through a wire fence - but it turns out it was actually a torch used for Crème Brûlées  One Star Wars fan discovered that in The Phantom Menace, a gadget was...
    A Native American law student at Yale says he’s being pressured into apologizing by a former Obama aide turned diversity tsar for sending a party invite that described the location as a ‘trap house.' The September 15 invite was deemed ‘triggering’ by Yale’s director of diversity and inclusion Yaseen Eldik, who previously worked in the Obama administration's White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnership. The student who sent it has spoken to DailyMail.com about his ordeal, but did not wish to be identified over fears for his future career prospects.  He said he is being further persecuted for being a member of the Federalist Society, a group of conservative and libertarian lawyers who advocate for an 'originalist' interpretation of the US Constitution, with the Society itself founded at Yale.   His invitation to a September 18 party was sent to members of the elite school’s Native American Law Students Association (NALSA). ‘Sup NALSA,’ the note said. ‘Hope you’re feeling social! This Friday at 7:30, we’ll be christening our very own (soon to be) world-renowned NALSA Trap House by throwing a Constitution...
    “James Bond is a simp” in No Time to Die, the latest film in the spy franchise, film director Amanda Milius said on Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Milius described how Hollywood’s undermining of the iconic character’s classic attributes are part of a broader cultural campaign of remaking popular mythologies to comply with left-wing doctrines regarding “wokeness.” “You can’t have a cool James Bond because it’s too masculine,” she remarked. “It’s too awesome. He’s a celebrated bachelor. The fact that they finally had to murder — and when I say that, I mean character-wise — they finally had to put James Bond in the grave in this one. You can tell that at just every opportunity that was their goal.” She continued, “They have to kill James Bond. They have to make him a simp before they finally kill the whole series. … The whole point of culture and Hollywood, right now, is not just to … make movies that you [don’t] want to see, but it’s to take your icons — Superman...
    KAI HAVERTZ admits he feared ‘being turned into a meme’ if he missed his Champions League-winning goal. Havertz, 22, netted Chelsea’s only strike in last season’s 1-0 final win against Manchester City. 2Kai Havertz admits he feared being mocked if he missed his open goal winner in the Champions League finalCredit: AFP 2Teammate Timo Werner always comes under heavy fire for his squandered chancesCredit: EPA The German, who joined the Blues last summer for around £70million, was played through on goal by Mason Mount.
