              more   Scottsdale Unified School District Board President Jann-Michael Greenburg refuses to resign after outraged parents discovered a dossier of personal information that he or his father had collected about parents he’d had conflicts with over Critical Race Theory, COVID-19 restrictions and other issues. The rest of the school board voted Greenburg out on November 15 at its meeting, appointing fellow board member Patty Beckman as interim president to serve for the remainder of the calendar year, but Greenburg refuses to resign from the board. Instead, he’s making plans to further his career by running for the board of the Maricopa County Community College District, filing his intent to run on November 3. Scottsdale parent Tracey Davis said in an email to board members on November 23, “In a way [his refusal to resign] is good for those of us who wish to face him at the next board meeting and publicly identify all of the things that he has done against parents and students in our district. As one of “these f***ing people,” I plan to speak for the...
    Dave Chappelle remains undefeated when it comes to dealing with people who don’t like him. Politico published a piece Thursday that was absolutely awesome about Chappelle visiting Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington D.C., which is the comedian’s alma mater. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) As I’m sure you could already have guessed, not everyone was happy with him making an appearance after his latest Netflix special. Only bitter losers hate Dave Chappelle. The rest of America LOVES his comedy. Remember, twitter isn’t real life, and the people complaining on here have no real power. pic.twitter.com/ESarbvKzeq — David Hookstead (@dhookstead) October 8, 2021 According to Politico, one student called the comedy legend a “bigot” and added, “I’m 16 and I think you’re childish, you handled it like a child.” Without much hesitation, Chappelle fired back with, “My friend, with all due respect, I don’t believe you could make one of the decisions I have to make on a given day.” NEW: More fireworks after Dave Chappelle made a surprise visit...
    During Wednesday’s “Newsroom” on CNN, political commentator Bill Kristol argued that people should realize there was no Thanksgiving last year given the COVID pandemic before they complained about inflation causing soaring food prices this year. Kristol said, “I think that they are crazy enough to try to take more credit for what the progress has been made on COVID and keep hammering that. And frankly, to criticize Republicans who have not helped get more people vaccinated, get more people boosted, get more kids vaccinated. We’re turning the corner on that did he spite despite the upsurge in the last month or so. Fewer are dying, and those who are dying unfortunately are the unvaccinated. So Biden should say think where we were a year ago. Give a little credit for President Trump to getting the thing going a year and a half ago. But people are taking that good news for granted, and then they are focusing on the bad news of inflation.” Guest-host Kaitlan Collins said, “But they are going to the grocery store and paying so much more....
    The husband of an unidentified 'accomplished author' is being thoroughly lambasted on social media for complaining that his wife wrote and sold a new novel — after supposedly 'agreeing' to put her writing career on hold after they had a baby. The man wrote anonymously to Slate's advice column 'Dear Prudence,' asking how he is ever supposed to trust his wife again after she 'secretly' wrote during her lunch breaks at her fulltime job. The man whined that his wife 'could have been home an hour earlier' if she'd skipped the lunch break and griped that she 'broke their deal.' His letter has since been shared on Twitter, where thousands of users are accusing him of being a bad husband and insisting that his reaction is completely unreasonable.  Seeing red: The husband of an unidentified 'accomplished author' is being lambasted on social media for complaining that his wife wrote and sold a new novel (stock image) Everything has changed: His wife works a fulltime job and is also an 'accomplished author,' but he says they 'agreed' she'd 'pause' her writing career...
    GOP lawmakers are mad that Biden is releasing some of the federal petroleum supply to reduce fuel costs ahead of the holidays. For months, Republicans in Congress have been complaining that President Joe Biden isn't doing enough to reduce energy prices. Now, they are attacking him for taking too much action to reduce energy prices. Biden announced Tuesday that he will release 50 million barrels of oil from the nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserves and that other countries have agreed to make similar moves, in an effort to lower gasoline prices and curb inflation before the holidays. GOP lawmakers quickly attacked him for it, suggesting it was "political" and won't be a panacea. "President Biden's decision to tap America's strategic reserves—which will release just 3 days' worth of oil onto the market—is not about a real solution to our energy crisis," tweeted House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. "It is a crass political ploy just 3 days ahead of Thanksgiving." "Joe Biden is only pretending to care about the cost of gas because...
    Chris Christie once again took his message about how Republicans should more on from the 2020 election to Fox News. In a Monday night interview with Laura Ingraham, the former New Jersey governor tried to walk a tightrope between touting his support for Donald Trump’s policies and saying he needs to stop relitigating the 2020 election. Ingraham asked Christie what he meant in his book by accusing Trump of engaging in “vendetta politics.” “It’s not useful for Donald Trump or anybody else to now be looking backwards when you see the extraordinary tragedies that are going on in this country every day,” Christie argued. He said Republicans should be focused on defeating President Joe Biden and looking back at 2020 distracts from that. Ingraham made a point of remarking, “You believe that election integrity matters, though.” Christie affirmed to Ingraham he believes voter ID is important and insisted he supports what Republicans in states like Georgia and Texas (the latter of which Trump won) have done to change voting laws. For months Christie has flatly stated that there was no...

    Cross — who last month infamously went after black former ESPN host Stage Steele for not being a legitimate "black voice" and accused her of "spewing ... nonsense" from "powerful white Americans" — had Martin on to discuss the Carville PBS interview. In response to the clip, Martin declared, "I think Carville should shut the F up, because I'm sick of these white men whining and complaining about wokeness when you like it when black folks and Latinos and young white voters and Asians are voting for candidates. How about this, James Carville? How about you go learn how to cut some Lincoln Project-type ads for the Democratic party?" He wasn't done. "How about creating some actual memes?" Martin continued. "Where is the video this morning of the infrastructure bill? How about you go raise money to run those ads on OAN and Fox News and Newsmax and telling those broke white folks in those various states how the infrastructure bill is going to benefit them? I'm sorry, James, I need you to shut up and do your job and...
    In a speech to major GOP donors on Saturday night, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) warned conservatives that it is time to leave Donald Trump and his complaints about the 2020 election behind and move on, reports CNN . Using the election of Republican Glenn Youngkin as Virginia's new governor after successfully keeping his distance from the former president as an example, Christie said the time of Trump has passed. With CNN's Maeve Reston writing that the former governor was speaking in Las Vegas at the Republican Jewish Coalition conference in a bid to start a possible 2024 GOP presidential bid, she noted he was the only featured speaker to take on Trump. "While the others have largely tip-toed around the former President, Christie was the only one to argue that Tuesday night's Republican gains -- namely winning Virginia's gubernatorial race and keeping New Jersey's much closer than expected -- demonstrated that the party must chart a new path forward that advances beyond the grievance politics that have defined the Trump era. If they do not, he warned,...
    A WOMAN who spends up to an hour making her husband’s lunch every day was shocked when he complained that they weren’t creative enough. Loving wife Liza Stian, 23, from San Francisco, regularly shares the incredible edible creations that she makes for her man every day on her TikTok account where she boasts six million followers. 3Liza Stian spends up to an hour making her husband's lunch every dayCredit: Lizastain/TikTok 3But she was recently left speechless when he told her they weren't creative enoughCredit: Lizastain/TikTok 3She asked for ideas on how to surprise her husbandCredit: Lizastain/TikTok From Disney themed packed lunches to Japanese style Bento boxes, Liza’s fail to impress her fans.

    Rwandan Environment Minister Jeanne d’Arc Mujawamariya slammed youth activist Greta Thunberg on Friday for her criticism of the ongoing COP26 climate summit. The top Rwandan diplomat said Thunberg’s critique of a carbon credit system, which developing nations are largely in favor of, was unnecessary, Politico reported. Under a carbon credit system, countries and private businesses that emit an amount of greenhouse gasses above a set threshold could pay other entities that emit under the limit, according to the World Economic Forum. “They’re just complaining just for complaining,” Mujawamariya told Politico. (RELATED: UN Drops Climate Change Case Brought By Greta Thunberg, Other Youth Activists) Thunberg accused advocates of carbon credits, also known as offsetting, of “greenwashing” in a series of tweets. She said that big oil corporations such as BP and Shell Oil supported the proposal since it would be a free pass for continued pollution. #COP26: GREENWASH ALERT! The fossil fuel industry & banks caused are among the biggest climate villains. Now @Shell @BP & @StanChart are here in Glasgow trying to scale up offsetting & give polluters a free...
    I don’t blame Disneyland fans for feeling like the sky is falling down upon them right now. If you try to keep up with the Disney theme park fan base on social media, you probably are seeing and hearing a lot of despair. Disneyland’s Magic Key holders are complaining that they cannot get reservations when they want them. Walt Disney World visitors are complaining about the Disney Genie rollout. Fans are mourning the loss of Disney’s Christmas parties and their replacement with expensive “after hours” events. Some fans even started an online petition calling for the removal of Bob Chapek as Disney CEO over what is happening in the parks. If anyone adapts Don Quixote for the 21st century, let the new man from La Mancha start online petitions instead of attacking windmills. If Disney ever makes a change in its C-Suite, it won’t be because of fan petitions. It will be because the money stops flowing into The Walt Disney Company. For all the fans complaining on social media, a lot of other fans are continuing to spend their...
    Getty Tom Brady claims he's "always" complaining to referees. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has one admission — he’s always complaining to referees. During his weekly appearance on Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray on Monday, November 1, the 44-year-old quarterback said he’s constantly giving NFL referees a piece of his mind. “I’m always complaining to the referees. … When they see that they get selected for my game, they lose sleep because they realize I’m a pain in the a**,” Brady said. “That’s just kind of the way it goes.” Although he may give referees a lot of verbatim, Brady says it has little effect on the actual officiating of the game. “Everyone’s yelling for calls, the other team’s yelling for calls, we’re yelling for calls,” Brady said. “There’s holding on every play in the NFL, it’s just whether they’re gonna call it or not. Sometimes you get them, sometimes you don’t, they basically even out over the course of the season.” ALL the latest Bucs news straight to your inbox! Join the...
    A landlord in Kansas City, Missouri has been accused of stabbing a tenant more than 30 times after he was alerted to heat problems by a couple who had asked if they could use a space heater to warm their chilly new rental. Gordon McBeth, 44, entered a not guilty plea on Monday after Clay County prosecutors charged him with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of 28-year-old Darryl Gilland on Friday afternoon. According to court documents obtained by the Kansas City Star, McBeth allegedly stabbed Gilland more than 30 times on Friday after Gilland’s girlfriend messaged the landlord alerting him that the heat wasn’t working in their new home. Samantha Pohlman said that she and Gilland, her boyfriend of five years, had only moved into the home a week before. “At first, the guy was perfectly nice about it,” she told KCTV. “He was like, ‘yeah I’ll come over and we’ll do that’ and then just out of nowhere he completely flipped and acted like we were asking too much and being a complete burden.”...
    A YOUNG woman was branded a hypochondriac and refused help after complaining of problems with her vagina for year.

    Senator Rand Paul slammed COVID tsar Dr. Anthony Fauci after the National Institutes of Health finally admitted to funding gain of function research on bat coronaviruses in it's Wuhan laboratory - despite Fauci's denials to congress that any such research took place. Paul had confronted Fauci earlier this year of lying about the NIH's involvement in coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a claim Fauci fought back against, calling Paul a liar.   The senator had also faced public backlash for attack Fauci, who serves as a director for the NIH's Institute of Infectious Diseases, and who enjoyed a status of popularity as the nation's expert on COVID-19.  Paul told Fox News that while he did feel validated after the new revelation was made on Thursday, the news should focus on a push for the US to end dangerous gain of function research projects.  'This is a civilization-ending kind of research. This research could release something that could destroy civilization,' Paul said.   He ultimately accused Fauci of lying and intentionally 'parsing words' so as to never fully admit that...
    Donald Trump Tuesday morning attacked former U.S. Secretary of State and Joint Chiefs Chairman Colin Powell, 24 hours after his death from COVID complications, and complained in typical Trump sarcasm how it was "wonderful" to see Powell being "treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media." The former president added that he hopes "that happens to me someday." He's now being highly criticized for his remarks. In a statement the former president called General Powell a "classic RINO," who was always the "first to attack other Republicans." Powell endorsed former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over Trump in the 2016 presidential race, and former Vice President Joe Biden in 2020. Trump also accused Powell, who served under Presidents Reagan, Bush 41, Clinton, and Bush 43, of making "big mistakes on Iraq," including his infamous statement before the United Nations about weapons of mass destruction, which Powell later acknowledged was wrong. After attacking Powell, Trump concluded, "He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!" Many are expressing outrage: Trump is being a pig again,...

    Jill Biden surprises her South Carolina prayer partner Teen arrested for shooting at football game that wounded five © Provided by CBS Sports Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr was recently asked what advice he would impart to someone starting their first NBA head coaching gig. "You have to be authentic to yourself," he said. "When players feel that authenticity and honesty, that's the main thing they want to hear and see." We're not even in the regular season yet, and it seems as if first-year Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is establishing his own authenticity. At the beginning of camp, Udoka stressed that he didn't want to see his team excessively complaining to officials. It's one thing to say that -- most coaches do -- but it's another to actually enforce it. During the Celtics' 122-100 loss to the Miami Heat in Friday's preseason finale, Udoka stayed true to his word. Boston forward Grant Williams committed an offensive foul on an illegal screen early in the third quarter and, while he argued with the official, Heat big...

Demarrus Pritchett, 23, was captured dousing Zayveon Johnson with oil on camera at the Wendy's in Huntingdon, a town about 115 miles from Nashville.  Johnson asked for a refund at the drive-thru window and argued with Pritchett about his food, which he said was was cold.

    On Jan. 3, days before Donald Trump’s supporters went on to ransack the U.S. Capitol, the president allegedly opened a high-stakes Oval Office meeting by complaining to his acting attorney general that he was doing nothing to help him “overturn” his election defeat to Joe Biden. The extraordinary claim was made by former Acting Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen in an interim report released by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday morning that sheds more light on Trump’s pressure campaign on the Justice Department in the dying weeks of his presidency. According to Rosen, Trump opened the Oval Office meeting on the evening of Jan. 3 by complaining to the gathered officials: “One thing we know is you, Rosen, aren’t going to do anything to overturn the election.” More to follow...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Ime Udoka is bringing a fresh voice to the Boston Celtics. And Celtics fans are going to love to hear what that fresh voice had to say on Tuesday. Following Boston’s practice, Udoka said that he wants to see his new team cut out something that has given the Celtics a bad rep over the last few years: Quit complaining to refs so darn much. READ MORE: Report: Brooklyn Nets Losing Hope That Kyrie Irving Will Get Vaccinated, Putting Playing Status In QuestionThe Celtics are far from the only team that complains to officials after a call — or more often, after a missed call. And in their defense, the officiating in the NBA is pretty bad. But the number of times when certain players — we’re looking at you, Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart — were a step or two behind a play because they were busy sharing their opinion with the zebras was far too abundant over the last few years. So Udoka is telling them to cut it out. The new man in charge...
    'Children are the world's most valuable resource,' said President John F. Kennedy, 'and its best hope for the future.' He was absolutely right. A society is only as good as the children it nurtures, educates and prepares for adulthood. A society is also only as good as the protection it affords children. And the most important people at the heart of all this childcare are parents. I've got no time for mothers and fathers who don't care about their kids. For me, they're the lowest of the low. If you don't want to care for your children, then don't have them. But conversely, I have all the time in the world for parents who DO care about their kids – passionately, ferociously, unconditionally. Above all, I will defend to the last drop of my blood the right of any parent to want to protect their child. In the end, isn't that the overriding job of a parent – to keep their children from harm's way until they'd old enough to look after themselves? That doesn't mean I will always agree...
    THE DAILY NEWSLETTER – MONDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2021 MEDIA WINNER: SNL’s James Austin Johnson It’s not easy being the new kid in class, especially when that class is broadcast nationally on live television. But James Austin Johnson held his own this weekend as one of the new members of Saturday Night Live’s cast for its 47th season, delivering a performance that has us looking forward to what he’ll contribute to NBC’s sketch comedy show. Johnson’s debut came during the cold open, playing the role of President Joe Biden — literally and figuratively front and center. It’s a character that has humbled more seasoned actors; Jim Carrey’s portrayal last season was panned as “squishing his face in odd directions and imagining Biden as being afflicted by an angry internal monologue.” Still, Johnson nimbly captured Biden’s mannerisms without overdosing on goofiness, a critique that was applied to other past SNL Bidens like Woody Harrelson and Alex Moffat, or Alec Baldwin’s cheesy take on former President Donald Trump.   MEDIA LOSER: Matthew Dowd Matthew Dowd is taking a break from tweeting very...

Along the way, however, highly-compensated receiver Amari Cooper saw limited opportunities. Cooper had only four targets in 65 snaps, which equates to 86 percent of the total offensive reps. On Thursday, he opted not to complain about the lack of passes sent his way. “That would be very selfish to complain about the ball when you won by 20 points,” Cooper said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. “Obviously, we were doing everything right. I’m fine with it.” Cooper had three catches for 26 yards. Receiver CeeDee Lamb also had three catches, resulted in 66 yards.

    MARK CLATTENBURG made the decision to quit refereeing after deciding he 'wasn't bothered' with criticism from Jose Mourinho. Having picked up the whistle in non-league football in 1994, the County Durham-born official worked his way up the pyramid to reach the Premier League in 2004 and Fifa's elite list two years later. 1Mark Clattenburg has revealed why he quit the Premier LeagueCredit: Getty Images - Getty But Clattenburg fell out of love with the game after losing his patience for complaining managers and disagreeing with his fellow refs.

Following a match between Manchester United and Stoke, Mourinho voiced his frustrations with the official and earned an earful in reply.

    France has been 'stabbed in the back' by the Australian nuclear submarine deal, a former top diplomatic official has said.  'The world is a jungle,' ex-ambassador to the US Gerard Araud tweeted on Monday.  'France has just been reminded this bitter truth by the way the US and the UK have stabbed her in the back in Australia. C’est la vie.'  Australia has for years been planning to build a fleet of new diesel-powered submarines in Adelaide via French company Naval Group, with the deal valued at $90billion.  France has been 'stabbed in the back' by the Australian nuclear submarine deal, a former top diplomatic official has said.

    "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg knocked "Real Time" host Bill Maher on Monday over his comments slamming the Black national anthem.  On Friday, Maher recalled watching the NFL's season kickoff between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys the night before, pointing out how the "Star-Spangled Banner" wasn't the only tune playing ahead of the game. "I saw last night on the football game, Alicia Keys sang ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,' which now I hear is called the Black national anthem. Now, maybe we should get rid of our national anthem, but I think we should have one national anthem," Maher said during a panel discussion. "I think when you go down a road where you're having two different national anthems, colleges sometimes now have … many of them have different graduation ceremonies for Black and White, separate dorms -- this is what I mean! Segregation! You've inverted the idea. We're going back to that under a different name." BILL MAHER RAILS AGAINST NFL OVER BLACK NATIONAL ANTHEM: IT'S ‘SEGREGATION’ UNDER A DIFFERENT NAME!'

    Whoopi Goldberg tore into Bill Maher for comments he made on James Weldon Johnson’s “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which is often referred to as the Black national anthem. “I saw last night on the football game, Alicia Keys sang ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,’ which now I hear is called the Black national anthem. Now, maybe we should get rid of our national anthem, but I think we should have one national anthem,” Maher said on Friday’s Real Time. I think when you go down a road where you’re having two different national anthems, colleges sometimes now have — many of them have — different graduation ceremonies for Black and White, separate dorms — this is what I mean! Segregation! You’ve inverted the idea. We’re going back to that under a different name.” Maher went on to hit at college campuses, claiming that professors are “taking children and making them hyper-aware of race in a way they wouldn’t otherwise be.” Goldberg offered her take while introducing the segment on Monday’s edition of The View, slamming Maher for “complaining” about the anthem and...
    (CNN)On Wednesday, the Biden administration requested that all Trump appointees appointed to boards at the nation's military academies -- a group that includes longtime Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway -- resign. Conway, in a letter rejecting Biden's request, said that his call to resign would constitute a "break from presidential norms."Yes, she really said that. "A break from presidential norms."This is, to be kind, a little rich coming from Conway, who spent years by then-President Donald Trump's side as he smashed every presidential norm possible.There was the travel ban from seven Muslim-majority countries.There was time he said that there were "very fine people on both sides" of the white nationalist riots in Charlottesville, Virginia.Read MoreThere was the time he pulled the United States from the Paris climate accord.There was the time he told the Proud Boys, a white supremacist organization, to "stand down and stand by."There was the time he referred to some African nations as "s*** hole countries."There was the time when he told four freshman Democratic lawmakers -- three of whom were born in the United States -- to...
    A white woman was fired from a North Carolina Hampton Inn after her employers refused to punish a black employee who allegedly hurled racial slurs at her and her co-workers for more than a year, a lawsuit claims.   The lawsuit, filed by the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of at least three white employees, said the black co-worker repeatedly called Rhonda Kendrick and the other plaintiffs 'white trash,' 'white ho,' and 'white bitches' from April 2017 to October 2018.  It also claims that when Kendrick finally complained to the hotel owner about the situation, he said 'he was done with the conversation,' and she was fired, EEOC lawyers said in the lawsuit. The EEOC filed the suit at the U.S. District Court in Statesville and is seeking damage payments for the victims from the hotel, as well as back pay for Kendrick.  Rhonda Kendrick, (left), and Jennifer Snipes are two of the three key victims named in the lawsuit who allegedly suffered constant racial harassment at the hands of a black co-worker The lawsuit names Kendrick, Jennifer Sipes,...
    A hiker has died of suspected heat stroke in Zion National Park in Utah amid 95 degree heat, park officials have announced. John Henry Wolfe, from Milwaukee, had reached the end of a strenuous nine mile canyon trail on Monday when he started complaining about exhaustion, a statement from the National Park Service said. Zion national park medics and EMTs were dispatched to the 32-year-old's location - at the exit route of the Left Fork of North Creek - and found him unresponsive. The statement said the responders carried out CPR for over an hour, to no avail, and Wolfe's body was then airlifted out of the park.  The National Park Service and local authorities are now investigating the man's death, with the Washington County Sheriff's Office as the lead agency. Heat stroke is caused when a person's body temperature reaches 103 degrees (39C). It can lead to confusion, dizziness and loss of consciousness, the CDC says.  A hiker has died of suspected heat stroke in Zion National Park in Utah (pictured, file photo) amid 95 degree heat, park officials have announced...

    MLB Twitter destroys Javy Baez for complaining about booing like a baby. Javier Baez showed just how petty he and the rest of the Mets players are when it was revealed why the players were doing the thumbs down whenever they did something good. And it’s not cool of them. They are doing it to the fans. Yep, that’s right. They are booing the fans. “We’re not machines, we’re going to struggle. … It just feels bad when I strikeout and I get booed. … We’re going to do the same thing to let them know how it feels,” he said. Clearly, Mets (and non-Mets) fans were not too happy about that revelation.

    Real Time host Bill Maher slammed 'woke liberals' for complaining about America by teaching Americans what 'real oppression' looks like on his show on Friday night.  Maher slammed Americans for constantly complaining about how America is 'so oppressed, sexist, and homophobic' by highlighting what his viewers should learn from Afghanistan.     'Watching the s**t go down in Afghanistan has reminded me of all the conversations I've ever had with an immigrant, almost all of which - if we got to really talking - included the notion of "Oh you people have no idea, all you do is b****h about and bad mouth your own country, but if you knew about the country I came from, you're stop s***ting on your own,"' he said.  Real Time host Bill Maher slammed 'woke liberals' for not understanding 'real oppression' and said Americans need to learn from Afghanistan  He said professors not agreeing with students and a former president suing over a joke isn't oppression and that Americans need to 'ask their maid' about real oppression  He drew comparisons to his own life when...
    Ashli Babbitt's widower says the Capitol police officer who fatally shot his wife during the January 6 riot should 'suck it up' after the cop's tearful interview where he said he's been receiving death threats.  Aaron Babbitt told of his outrage at Lieutenant Michael Byrd's interview with NBC News on Thursday, hours after he was unmasked as Ashli's killer.  Aaron said: 'I don't even want to hear him talk about how he's getting death threats, and he's scared. I've been getting death threats since January 7th - two, three, five, 10 a day - and all I did on January 6th is becoming a widower,' he told Carlson.  'So you're going to have to suck it up, bud, and take it.'    Asked if he's seen the full interview, Babbitt - who lives in California - said he'd only seen clips, but added that 'my agitation is going through the roof right now' as a result of what he had watched.  He spoke hours after Byrd said his actions showed 'utmost courage' and that he 'saved countless lives' during an interview NBC News...
    MOAB, Utah (AP) — Residents of a Utah tourist town near the campsite where a newlywed couple was recently gunned down say they’re puzzled and concerned as the police investigation unfolds. Crystal Turner, 38, and Kylen Schulte, 24, were found fatally shot on Aug. 18 at a campsite near Moab, a desert town where they were living. They had been married for four months. Investigators believe someone killed the women and fled the area, KUTV reported. No firearms have yet been recovered. “We do think it was an outside party,” Grand County Sheriff Steven White said. The bodies were discovered by a friend, Cindy Sue Hunter, who had gone looking for them after receiving a worried phone call from Schulte’s father in Montana. He said he hadn’t heard from his daughter for three days and that she had said — in Hunter’s words — “that there was a creeper dude that they were scared of and that they were saying they needed to move their camp.” Hunter went to the area where they were camping, South Mesa, off the La...
    Surveillance footage captured the final moments of a slain couple before they disappeared, as the two women laughed and joked about the 'weirdo' camping next to them in the Utah wilderness. Just five days later, on August 18, the bodies of Kylen Schulte, 24, and Crystal Beck, 38, were found in the La Sal Mountains, the second-highest range in Utah. The married couple's friend Kayla Borza, one of the last people to see them alive, had been with them in the tavern in the town of Moab.  'We were just having a great time, having a couple drinks, and all they said was there was a creep [staying] next to them,' said Borza, who believes that creep is the man that killed Schulte and Beck.  Surveillance footage captured the final moments of a slain couple, Kylen Schulte, 24, and Crystal Beck, 38, before they disappeared, as the two women laughed and joked about the 'weirdo' camping next to them in the Utah wilderness The married couple's friend Kayla Borza, one of the last people to see them alive, had been...

    DEAR HARRIETTE: I accidentally texted the wrong co-worker. Harriette Cole  I work in a very small office with only 25 employees; we all know each other well, and we go out for happy hours together quite a bit. Last weekend, we all went out for drinks, and one of my co-workers was being completely rude to our server. I meant to complain about her behavior to my other work colleague, but I didn’t pay close attention and texted the one I was talking about instead. I haven’t spoken to her since. What should I do? Wrong Co-Worker DEAR WRONG CO-WORKER: Consider it a blessing that you texted the offender, and talk to her. It is much better to tell a person to their face what you think about their behavior rather than to gossip about the person to others. You should approach the offender, apologize for sending the snarky text and tell her how you felt. Point out that you thought she was rude to the server that night and it made you uncomfortable. Admit that your intention had been...

    Kevin Hoffman/Getty Images To attend grad school in the US, I had to show my vaccine records dating back to when I was born.

    SAITAMA, Japan (AP) — Besides his native Slovenian, Luka Doncic speaks English and Spanish. When he’s mad at a referee, he uses a language that doesn’t require any words at all. And at the Olympics, it seems like every basketball player knows how to speak it. Players throw their arms in the air, or put their hands on their head. Almost always, they have an incredulous look on their face. Even in their first Olympics, the Slovenians are just as fluent in the language as 41-year-old Luis Scola of Argentina, who just finished his record-tying fifth Olympics. Some players could play that long and looked stunned they were called for a foul in any of them. Complaining about calls isn’t just an Olympic sport. It starts on the playgrounds and carries all the way to the NBA, which has the best officials in the world. But no referee is good enough for some players, who think they’ve never touched anyone in between the pregame and postgame handshakes. Sometimes the officials will hear them out, perhaps respond with something like...
    Chen Qingchen. Photo by Lintao Zhang/Getty Images China's badminton silver medalists have attracted a complaint for their constant swearing. They apparently said "f---" on multiple occasions during a badminton doubles win over South Korea. South Korean media was critical of the cursing but many social media users on Weibo found it funny. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. South Korea's badminton association is complaining to the International Olympics Committee (IOC) because China's players kept saying "f---" during a doubles match involving competitors from both countries. CNN reported Wednesday that Chen Qingchen, a 24-year-old athlete, repeatedly said a curse word in Mandarin during a July 27 match that was broadcast live on South Korea television. Chen and teammate Jia Yifan lost the first set to Kim So-yeong and Kong Hee-yong. At 1-0 down, Chen first said the word, roughly equivalent to "f---" in English. The Chinese doubles then mounted a comeback and win the match two sets to one. But for every point won in the successful second and third sets, both Chen and Jia would celebrate by...
