10 d ago Business InsiderThe Trump administration is rolling back the mandate that employers provide free birth control
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Joshua Roberts/Reuters
The Trump administration is rolling back the regulations that make it mandatory for employer-provided insurance plans to provide free birth control.
The new rules, released Friday , exempt employers from a law requiring that they cover birth control if that practice contradicts their religious or moral beliefs. The change expands the group that's already exempt from the rule.
Under the Affordable Care Act, insurance plans have to cover birth control for women at no cost, a rule referred to as the birth-control mandate. That made birth control — including pills and implanted devices like IUDs — newly affordable to many women. The rollback could mean that hundreds of thousands of women who don't have to pay for pills and devices out of pocket could be forced to do so.
Birth-control coverage has long been in the crosshairs of some Republican lawmakers. The ACA mandate led to numerous lawsuits, including the Supreme Court case Burwell v. Hobby Lobby , in which Hobby Lobby argued that because of its owner's religious belief the company should be exempt from paying for employee insurance plans that cover contraception. The court's decision enabled certain closely held corporations like Hobby Lobby to exclude birth-control coverage for religious reasons.
A year after the birth-control mandate took effect, there was a 5% uptick in the number of women who filled prescriptions, the National Women's Law Center reports . And in 2016 the teen birth rate hit an all-time low, which can in part be attributed to the birth-control coverage guaranteed by the ACA.
Amid fears that the birth-control mandate may be repealed after Donald Trump's victory in last year's presidential election, there was a spike in the number of women who got IUDs, or intrauterine devices, a form of birth control that can last years.

9 d ago Business Insider :: Trump says 'only one thing will work' to solve the North Korea crisis
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Thomson Reuters
US President Donald Trump said on Saturday that "only one thing will work" to solve the North Korea crisis, although he did not explicitly specify what that would be.
"Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid......" the president tweeted . 
"...hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!" he continued in a second tweet .
It's unclear whether Trump was referring to the nuclear option when he said "only one thing will work." A senior administration official told Business Insider that the White House had "nothing else to add" to the president's tweets, and the State Department did not return a request for comment. 
North Korea rapidly escalated its nuclear posturing over the summer. The rogue nation  fired a missile  over Japan a few weeks ago for the second time in two months.
Last weekend, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters during a visit to China that the US conflict with North Korea is "overheated" and that the first priority was to calm things down. He said that the US has a direct line of communication open with Pyongyang over North Korea's nuclear tests, adding: "We're not in a dark situation, a blackout."
Trump diverged from the US State Department later that weekend  and said Tillerson was "wasting his time" opening up talks with the North Korean regime. The president  added  that being nice to Kim "hasn't worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won't fail." 
Trump ramped up his rhetoric against the regime when the United Nations General Assembly convened on September 23, saying that "rocket man" Kim Jong Un was on a "suicide mission," and that if he did not back down, the US would "have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea."
Kim  responded  by saying he would "surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire." North Korea's foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho,  also said  that  Trump's comments made the possibility of a missile attack  on the US mainland "all the more inevitable."
Ri also said that Trump had "declared a war" on North Korea through tweets he posted after the UN meeting and that the country could shoot down US strategic bombers even if they were not in its airspace,  according to Reuters .
Speaking to reporters in New York in September, Ri pointed to one of Trump's tweets that said Ri and Kim Jong Un " won't be around much longer " if the rogue nation continued its nuclear provocations as constituting a declaration of war.
The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, rejected North Korea's claim later that day."We've not declared war on North Korea," Sanders told reporters during the White House daily briefing. "Frankly, the suggestion of that is absurd."

Harvey Weinstein has been fired from the Weinstein Company after new information emerged regarding his conduct, the company’s board of directors has said.
Weinstein – the Hollywood mogul who produced films including Pulp Fiction and Gangs of New York – was on a voluntarily leave of absence after a slew of sexual harassment allegations emerged last week in a New York Times exposé. The board on Friday endorsed that decision at the time but went further on Sunday, removing Weinstein from the company he co-founded.

4 d ago Business Insider :: Joe Biden rebukes Harvey Weinstein and urges Hollywood to speak up about sexual assault
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Mark Makela/Getty Images
Former Vice President Joe Biden had terse words for Harvey Weinstein on Wednesday, as a growing sexual-harassment scandal continued to engulf the movie mogul.
Biden called Weinstein's recent firing a "justifiable end" to what has been described as a long history of abuse by the Hollywood executive.
Speaking at a fundraiser for a nonprofit organization, Biden railed against Weinstein, who is accused of engaging in sexual misconduct spanning decades, according to a  New York Times report . Several women have since emerged with additional allegations against Weinstein.
"This disgusting behavior, at least on the part of Harvey Weinstein, has been brought to an abrupt and justifiable end," Biden said, according to BuzzFeed News . "A man who had power over scores of women and their careers — the ultimate abuse of power in a disgusting, immoral, and inexcusable way."
Biden has long been a proponent of women's rights, giving several speeches and establishing a foundation to end violence against women.
Biden also offered an anecdote, along with advice to people in the entertainment industry.
"My father taught me the greatest sin that could be committed was the abuse of power, whether it was mental, physical or economic," Biden said. "And the ultimate — the cardinal sin — was for a man to use his power, physical or economic, to abuse a woman or a child. It's disgusting."
"But it's long past time for the powerful men in Hollywood to speak up, to be strong enough to say something, because silence is complicity."
Following The Times' report, The New Yorker  published the accounts of three women who accused Weinstein of rape. Weinstein's company  fired  him on Sunday and his wife, designer Georgina Chapman, said she was leaving him .

10 d ago Time‘These Are Just Not Ordinary Times:’ Lin-Manuel Miranda on the Making of His New Song for Puerto Rico
Read on Time | Share | Tweet


Lin-Manuel Miranda isn’t sleeping much these days. Quite literally: he’s spent the past week flying around the country, getting a crew of famous artists — Jennifer Lopez , Luis Fonsi , Camila Cabello , Gloria Estefan and many more — to record a new single, “Almost Like Praying,” out now to support the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico. Made with a riff on Sondheim’s West Side Story tune, it’s meant to be a unifying anthem for an island ravaged by Hurricane Maria , with all proceeds going to the Hispanic Federation’s UNIDOS Disaster Relief Fund.
“The name ‘Maria’ will forever have a different connotation on the island,” Miranda explained to TIME. “Most of us know ‘Maria’ as the name of a really great song in West Side Story, a really great love song.” But for Miranda, he saw an opportunity to combine the two — the classic Broadway tale and the current crisis — into a way to help the island of his family’s roots. “My brain started flipping the lyric. ‘Say it loud and there’s music playing, say it soft and it’s almost like praying,’ That was half the idea.”
The other half was including the names of all the island’s towns, as a way to combat the “terrible silence” that greeted the hurricane’s end. “I don’t think I heard from my family until four or five days after,” he explains. Social media was filled with Puerto Ricans seeking loved ones by looking for updates on specific places. “I thought, if I can manage to put every one of the 78 towns in Puerto Rico in the lyric, that’s the song. That’s what unites us all. Because our traditions emanate from those towns, and they’re the source of pride and of power.”
The resulting song combines the voices of over a dozen artists, including Marc Anthony, Fat Joe, Gina Rodriguez and John Leguizamo. If Miranda didn’t know someone personally, like Gloria Estefan, no problem: Rita Moreno called her up on his behalf, and got her into the studio the next day. They all contribute to what the award-winning songwriter calls the catchiest and most “dance-able” song he’s ever written. Many of the artists, he added, didn’t even hear the track before agreeing to be a part of it. But to a one, they signed on, he said. “These are just not ordinary times,” he noted. “So I try to do what I think I do best.”
There’s only so much one song can do. But Miranda says the best way to combat feeling paralyzed by “the totality of what is going wrong in the world” is to take what action you can. “There’s no shortage of challenges, and there’s no shortage of ways to do good, and this is just one of them,” he said. Songwriting just happens to be his strong suit — and a good way to spread a message. “Music travels faster than news,” he noted. “Music travels faster than anything. And if you can thread the needle and do it right, it lasts longer, too.”
Miranda is boosting the cause by also attempting to get more listeners for a Spotify playlist for Puerto Rico. If it reaches 50,000 followers, he’s promised to share a throwback photo of him dressed up as JLo ( in faux-Versace and all) for a college event. After seeing the photo, Lopez gave it her stamp of approval, calling Miranda “cute.” “I’ve been holding it back for a special occasion, and this seems like a special occasion, if any,” he added.

Read on GameSpot | Share | Tweet

If you're a fan of Rick and Morty you'll be familiar with the unhealthy, mostly unexplained obsession the show's manic super-genius protagonist has with Szechaun Sauce. The limited edition condiment from McDonald's was mentioned in the first episode of season three, and since then has spiraled into somewhat of a cultural phenomenon. In fact, it's reached the point where McDonald's is actually bringing it back, but for a very limited time.
The sauce will be available today in limited quantities at select restaurants. Given the incredible popularity of Rick and Morty and the fanbase's obsession with the one-off joke, it's going to be tricky to get some of the sauce. Even more so because some of the restaurants that were supposed to have the sauce haven't received shipments.
Thankfully, McDonald's did us a solid and sent some to our very own Michael Rougeau, who, along with Mat Elfring, Tony Wilson, and Entertainment Tonight's Ash Crossan, put it to the taste test. See what they both thought of it below.

Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling have been doing a lot of interviews lately to promote their new film Blade Runner 2049 but this might be the best one yet.

The pair went on the British morning show This Morning and the interviewer Alison Hammond had them in stitches. Mind you, they had her in stitches as well.
There's a lot of uproarious laughter, and Gosling turns to booze to steady himself. He also pretends to storm off at one point, and drops a pretend microphone. However, dropping his imaginary mic doesn't stop him trying to harmonise with Harrison Ford. Read more...

YouTube/Graham Norton Show
As "Blade Runner 2049" draws nearly universal critical acclaim in advance of its release on Friday, the film's stars, Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, have been talking about an infamous, accidental punch that occurred on its set. 
Gosling first described the "fight scene" punch to GQ in December. After Ford accidentally clocked Gosling in the face amid a flurry of fake punches, Gosling said that "2049" director Denis Villeneuve told him, "'Look at it this way — you just got hit by Indiana Jones.'"
Ford and Gosling have since discussed the punch on several late-night shows.
Ford recounted the punch on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" this week. "I threw 80 punches," he said. "Seventy-nine of them missed him, which is the way you're supposed to do it in a movie."
Later in the week, Ford and Gosling revealed the actual image of the punch on the "Graham Norton Show."

Mario Anzuoni/Reuters
AUBURN, Wash. (AP) — Police have arrested rapper Nelly after a woman said he raped her in a town outside Seattle, an accusation the Grammy winner's attorney staunchly denies.
Auburn police spokesman Commander Steve Stocker said officers arrested Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., early Saturday morning in his tour bus at a Walmart.
Nelly is scheduled to perform in Ridgefield, Washington, on Saturday night.
Nelly's attorney, Scott Rosenblum, said the allegation was false and motivated by "greed and vindictiveness."
Stocker says Nelly's in jail and will have his first appearance before a judge "at some point."
Nelly is known for his hits "Hot in Herre," ''My Place" and "Over and Over." He also appeared in the 2005 film "The Longest Yard."

Saturday Night Live has always taken great care to strike the right tone after tragedy, and this week's episode managed to delicately address a terrible week on multiple levels, but with a single, thoughtful stroke.
Instead of a cold open mocking the Donald Trump administration — breaking what must have been some kind of record streak — the first face we saw was that of country singer Jason Aldean, about to make his first public performance since leaving the stage last Sunday as the shooting rampage in Las Vegas began last Sunday night.

Major League Baseball has fined Arizona Diamondbacks after a coach was spotted wearing an Apple Watch in the team’s dugout on Wednesday night’s game against the Colorado Rockies. However, the organization has concluded that the device wasn’t used to cheat.
In its statement, the league said that Diamondbacks coach/interpreter Ariel Prieto was wearing an Apple Watch, breaking the league’s rules against having electronic devices in the dugout. The league says that after interviewing Prieto and examining his watch and phone, it’s determined that the device wasn’t used in a nefarious way — unlike the Boston Red Sox, which was fined last month for using such a device to cheat by stealing signs .

12 d ago GameSpotFIFA 18 Nintendo Switch Review
Read on GameSpot | Share | Tweet

FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch is a tough game to categorize. When compared to the likes of FIFA's past PS Vita , 3DS , and other mobile versions, it's easily the best portable FIFA ever made. But compared to its current console cousin--FIFA 18 on PS4 / Xbox One --it's lacking features and much of the shine that makes that version so appealing.
On the pitch, it actually replicates the other editions' gameplay pretty well. Dribbling feels responsive, crosses are accurate, and overall match speed is faster than on PS4 / Xbox One, a change that better suits the Switch's immediate pick-up-and-play sensibilities. Commentary is also just as impressive, and animations look as smooth as they do on current-gen (though you're better off not looking at the cardboard cut-out crowds). Shots don't pop like they do on PS4 and Xbox One, and the omission of player instructions is a frustrating and bizarre one. But playing a match of FIFA 18 on Switch is an enjoyable experience.
The problems arise when you consider the game as a package. FIFA's Switch port is missing Pro Clubs and The Journey, meaning the only options to play offline are the bog standard Kick Off and aging Career Mode. I say "aging" because the Career Mode here is not the one included in FIFA 18 on PS4 and Xbox One--it's more like the Career Mode seen in FIFA 16 . It does not include the latest additions of dynamic news clips or interactive transfer negotiations because--like The Journey--they are powered by the Frostbite engine, which FIFA 18 on Switch does not use. With such a faithful recreation seen on the pitch, it's disappointing that attention to detail is not reflected off it.
This means that, despite feeling good when you're in a match, FIFA 18 doesn't really offer much to do when you're not connected to the internet. The Journey in particular would've been a perfect fit for a portable FIFA--a match on the way to work, another on the way home--but its omission leaves the only proper mode, save for the aforementioned Career Mode, as Ultimate Team.
FUT is, again, replicated well--it looks and plays like the real deal, and contains much of the live content the other versions boast, like Team of the Week and SBCs. However, once again, the Switch edition is missing the mode's big new feature for this season, FUT Squad Battles. Ironically, Squad Battles are the feature that would have fit this version of Ultimate Team best--as a single-player portion, it would've been perfect to play a couple of matches while on the bus and have the game sync when I get home. Unfortunately, they're missing from this version, and you can't even access FUT's menus when you're not connected to EA's servers. Of course, you can play it when you get home, but you'll be playing a version of Ultimate Team missing many of the PS4 / Xbox One versions' innovations from the past couple of years.
One advantage the Switch version has over the home console edition is the ability to play with a friend while on the go. FIFA 18 supports single Joy-Con play, meaning I was able to play football on my Switch against my brother on the way to an actual football match this weekend. It works, but I always felt l was struggling against the controls--fewer buttons and only one stick means there's no way to use finesse shots, threaded through balls, knuckle shots, manual defending, skill moves, or driven passes. EA has come up with a clever workaround to allow you to knock the ball ahead--double tap the right trigger rather than using the absent right stick--but it's a shame similar solutions haven't been found for the other missing moves. It remains a convenient way to play a quick match against friends while on the go, but you'll be fighting to get both Joy-Cons back before long.
Unfortunately, the ability to play with friends is not reflected in FIFA 18's online offering on Switch. While you can play online--in FUT or in the standard Seasons mode or a single match--there is no way to matchmake with friends unless they happen to be in the same room as you and have their Switch on them. It's a glaring omission, and doesn't do justice to the community EA has cultivated so well on Xbox and PlayStation.
FIFA 18 on Switch delivers some enjoyable soccer when on the pitch, but without Pro Clubs and The Journey, and in restricting all access to FUT when you're not online, it shoots itself in the foot. Being able to play FIFA on the go or with a friend is gratifying, and if you're happy to just play through Career Mode for the next year, then this port will satisfy your needs and is the best mobile FIFA you can buy, but compared to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, this port is inferior in every other way.

9 d ago GameSpot :: Nintendo Pushes Switch Production To 2 Million A Month
Read on GameSpot | Share | Tweet

It's no secret that the Nintendo Switch is in high demand. With an infamous history of missing the mark when it comes to supply meeting demand, Switch production is looking more optimistic as Nintendo has reportedly increased production to a massive two million units a month.
DigiTimes reports the increase is meant to finally help meet the high demand for the console in Asia as well as meet Nintendo's target production numbers. In just 2017, the company is aiming to reach 20 million units.
But even with the increase in production, Nintendo Switch consoles are still in short supply in Japan and won't be available in Taiwan until this December. The console is expected to launch in China in 2018, and with the recent support of Tencent , the move to get the console in the country could be very lucrative.
As far as how the increase will affect the Americas and Europe, time will tell, but we're hopeful for this holiday season. For more Switch news, makes sure to check out some of the most recent titles to hit the Eshop and the latest look at Super Mario Odyssey .

REUTERS/Dylan Martinez
LONDON (Reuters) - British police said on Sunday a man arrested after a car collided with pedestrians in London, injuring 11, had been released under investigation while enquires continued.
A 47-year-old was arrested at the scene near London's Natural History Museum on Saturday on suspicion of dangerous driving.
He was treated in hospital before being taken to a north London police station, the Metropolitan Police said.
"This morning he was released under investigation while enquiries continue," the police said.
People released under investigation are not required to attend again at a police station but can be contacted, and in some incidences arrested again, after further police enquiries.
A vehicle mounted the pavement and collided with pedestrians in one of the capital's busiest tourist areas on Saturday afternoon, but police doused concerns it was a terrorist attack.
"Because of where this collision occurred and the number of pedestrians involved, I fully appreciate the concern and alarm this incident caused," DC Darren Case from the Roads and Transport Policing Command said on Sunday.
"Enquiries have established that this incident is not terrorist-related ...Thankfully there are no serious injuries with the majority now discharged from hospital."

8 d ago Business Insider :: The best value plays in your DraftKings lineup for Week 5 of the NFL season
Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images
With a full slate ahead on Sunday, Week 5 presents plenty of opportunities for excitement, especially for daily fantasy players looking to make a quick buck on DraftKings, FanDuel, or wherever you choose to play.
When forming your daily fantasy lineup, it's always important to look for value plays in the mid- to lower-tier price ranges. Everyone wants to load their teams with studs sure to light up the box score, but it's finding the undervalued players that allows you to max out your budget on the likes of Antonio Brown and Aaron Rodgers this week.
Below we've picked some of our best value plays for daily fantasy players. Consider them when trying to find a few extra dollars to upgrade elsewhere in your lineup.
QB: Blake Bortles, $4,800 Abbie Parr/Getty Images
While Jaguars fans have been waiting for Blake Bortles to turn into an elite passer for years, fantasy players know that he's an absolute stud when it comes to padding stats in garbage time when Jacksonville is already hopeless of winning the game on the field. Going up against the Steelers on Sunday, Bortles should have plenty of time to get pass happy after the outcome has been decided.

RB: Frank Gore, $4,400 Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images
Did you know that Frank Gore is 8th on the all-time rushing list? He's rushed for more yards in his career than Marshall Faulk and Jim Brown, and has a good chance to pass Jerome Bettis this season. Anyway, this week the Colts are playing the Niners at home and Gore was one of the brights spots of the Colts' Sunday night game against the Seahawks.

RB: LeGarrette Blount, $4,200 Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images
LeGarrette Blount showed off a bit of beast mode for the Eagles on Sunday, barreling through the Chargers defense . While the Cardinals present a solid run defense, expect Philadelphia to get a lead and then seal the game with their running backs. Nothing would get the home crowd hyped like another running performance like last week.

Read on Mashable | Share | Tweet

New York Comic Con kicks off Thursday, and while the TV lineup isn't quite as expansive as San Diego's annual fan fest, there are still plenty of high-profile shows making an appearance during the convention — and broadcast better watch out, because most of these heavy-hitters come from the streaming networks.
Here are 10 shows that get our Spidey senses tingling at this year's NYCC.
Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams
Friday, Oct. 6, 10:30AM-11:30 a.m., Hammerstein Ballroom
Amazon's new anthology series has already drawn inevitable comparisons to Netflix's Black Mirror, since it's also produced by Channel 4 (the UK network that initially made Black Mirror a hit across the pond before Netflix snagged it), but instead of springing from the enviable mind of Charlie Brooker for its twisted tech tales, Electric Dreams goes back to the source of so many of our sci-fi anxieties, adapting the iconic stories of Philip K. Dick.  Read more...

10 d ago GameSpot :: American Gods Star Ricky Whittle Got Crazy Political At New York Comic-Con
Read on GameSpot | Share | Tweet

American Gods star Ricky Whittle opened the Starz show's New York Comic-Con panel today with some politics, to the delight of most members of the audience.
"It's an important show, and we were just very fortunate. The book came out in 2001. We wrapped before the inauguration and all kinds of shit hit the fan, to be quite honest. We were just fortunate that we happened to feature all these themes in our show. And it's very important that we don't make this normal, this kind of way of life that we seem to be living at the moment," he said. "We were like, 'Never gonna happen.' But it did! 'It's not gonna get worse.' It did! 'Yeah, but they don't do that.' They did! That can't ever, ever, ever, ever become normal, where we're just like, ugh, what's happening today? No. Excuse my language, f**k that. No."
"I don't want to get too political," he said after an uproarious round of applause. ("A little late for that," interjected Pablo Schreiber, who plays Mad Sweeney on American Gods.)
"I was really inspired yesterday morning," Whittle continued. "I was in the gym, and a soldier was talking to me, and he said, 'I didn't put my life on the line for anyone to tell people--free people, never mind the president--what they're allowed to kneel for in their life.' It's not about the flag. It's not about the anthem. Colin Kaepernick and all these sports stars love America. They love the flag. They love the anthem. It's never been about that, and we need to focus on what it's about. And with our show, we're keeping stuff in conversation which needs to be happening. We're talking about immigration. We're talking about racism, sexism. We're talking bout homophobia. We're talking about gay rights. We're talking about gun control. All of this stuff matters. All of this stuff cannot be normal. We need to be having these conversations every day. And not just having conversations--how about we start making stuff happen?"
"I pissed myself laughing when Kanye said he was going to run," he concluded. "I will take Kanye in a second." The crowd's cheers drowned out any further politicizing.
Whittle's not exaggerating when he emphasizes American Gods' culturally relevant content. He said the scene where his character Shadow Moon--a man of color--gets lynched by a mob of faceless white creatures was especially powerful for him.
"We seem to think that this stuff's over...these racist bits, they're important, and we need to keep raising them up," he said. "You have a black man being hung by a tree surrounded by faceless goons dressed all in white. It doesn't get more on the nose than that, and it really is powerful."
"I think that's one of the real strengths of the show, to be honest with you," Schreiber said later. "We have a story that is about immigration. It's about all of the different voices and kinds of people that have lent themselves to create this country and make it what it is, and so it's being told by a number of outsiders--a number of immigrants to this country, people who live here now, without an outsider's point of view on it. And that's what's important about the show. That's why it is what it is."
Beyond all that, the cast mainly discussed stories from set and their audition processes. Yetide Badaki, who plays Bilquis, revealed that her character's infamous introduction on the show--in which the Goddess of Love swallows a man into her vagina--was the first scene she shot.
"That's when I realized--I already knew this [show] was going to be an event, but seeing all of that happen...it was truly something special," she said.
The cast and moderator, Vulture's Abraham Reisman, made sure to note that they weren't going to reveal anything about American Gods Season 2, but Schreiber did let one thing slip. He said the show going forward will feature more episodes that focus on one character's story, like the Season 1 episode "A Prayer For Mad Sweeney," which explored Schreiber's character's backstory. "I know that we're going to have opportunities for all of the cast to have their own, like, sort of standalone things where you really get to focus on one character for an entire episode," he said. "So I'm excited for everybody else to do those as well."
Other than that little tidbit, the American Gods panel at New York Comic-Con didn't offer fans much in the way of Season 2 teases. But everyone who was in the audience knows that we'll always have Ricky Whittle's epic rant.

When the UNLV Rebels and San Diego State Aztecs take the field at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday, both teams will honor the victims of the mass shooting that took the lives of 59 people and injured over 500 more earlier this week.
"Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victims and the families impacted by this senseless act of violence," UNLV director of athletics Desiree Reed-Francois said in a statement .
The University of Las Vegas is just three miles from the Mandalay Bay Hotel where the shooting occurred.
For the game, the Rebels will wear the ribbons as decals on their helmets, rather than their usual logo.

"While football is just a game, it can also serve as a rallying point of unity and allow all of us to recognize the incredible heroism displayed by so many this week," Reed-Francois said. "We are all extremely proud of our community's response over the last couple of days."
The game has also been designated as "Heroes Night." The ribbon will also appear on the playing field, and fans in attendance will receive one on entry.
There will also be a pregame ceremony honoring the victims and first responders ahead of the game, which will be broadcast nationally at 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

11 d ago MashableElon Musk just fanboyed the science on 'Rick and Morty' and it got too real
Read on Mashable | Share | Tweet

What a lovely day to carry out the meaningless of existence in this simulated reality. The birds are chirping, sun is shinning, and there's only a couple hundred glitches happening in the Matrix right now.
Oh, and Tony Stark-wannabe Elon Musk just straight up fanboyed Rick and Morty on Twitter — until it got weird. Wubbalubbadubdub, to all my birdpeople in great pain and begging for help in between liquor-induced burps, amiright!?
The animated sci-fi comedy show is known for stretching the more philosophically distressing scientific theories to their absolute comedic limit. The multiverse theory, for example, is expanded (there's a science pun for ya) by the implementation of Rick's portal gun, which allows him to pop into any infinite universe at any time — leading to the genius premise of an entire citadel of Ricks and Mortys who have their own culture, system of governance, and class disparity.

Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Adult Swim via YouTube
Elon Musk showed off his new 280-character Twitter limit on Thursday morning in the best way possible: musing about the Singularity with the official "Rick and Morty" Twitter account.
The Tesla and SpaceX CEO revealed in August that he watched the sci-fi show — only after a fan asked the question on everyone's mind.

Yeah. It's kinda disgusting, but my boys and I love it :)
While the show disgusts him from time to time, he said, he's a fan, and it's 30 minutes he enjoys sharing with his five sons. Very sweet.
"Rick and Morty" responded by promising to disgust the entire Musk family with the third-season clincher. Also very sweet.
And "Rick and Morty" delivered on its promise! Musk said the season-three finale was "disgustingly good." That compliment quickly escalated to Musk's musings about the Singularity, as can only happen when you're in a Twitter thread with a billionaire trying to colonize Mars.

The singularity for this level of the simulation is coming soon. I wonder what the levels above us look like.
Good chance they are less interesting and deeper levels are better. So far, even our primitive sims are often more entertaining than reality itself.
The Singularity — the theory that machine intelligence will one day surpass our own — is one of Musk's favorite topics. Musk even launched a $1 billion startup, OpenAI, to ensure that artificial intelligence doesn't ultimately pose an existential threat to humanity and turn us all into house cats .
Musk also loves to spend time debating whether we're in a simulation. He has said there's a "billion-to-one chance we're living in base reality."
So there you have it: Musk is debating whether the Singularity has already been achieved in other simulations.
That fits nicely with Adult Swim's "Rick and Morty," which explains why Musk likes it so much — the entire premise of the show is that there is an infinite number of universes with an infinite number of timelines.

10 d ago GameSpotGame Of Thrones Season 8 Really Might Not Start Until 2019
Read on GameSpot | Share | Tweet

There is only one season of Game of Thrones left , but fans might have to wait longer than expected to see it. It has been reported that filming on Season 8 will continue all the way to next summer, making it unlikely that the season will air before 2019.
According to Entertainment Weekly , Season 8 doesn't start shooting until this month, considerably later than previous seasons. Even if the show was to follow the six-month production schedule of earlier seasons, it still wouldn't finish until the spring. But as it stands, the scale of the production on these final episodes suggest that it may go beyond that into the summer. Even though this is the shortest season to date , it has been reported that each episode will be much longer than usual .
EW quotes actor Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) who states, "[The episodes are] definitely going to be bigger and what I hear is longer. We're filming right up until the summer. When you think about it, up until last season we'd have six months to do ten episodes, so we're [doing] way more than that for six episodes. So that obviously will translate into longer episodes."
Another reason for the extended production was also provided by Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont). Glen suggested that the simultaneous shoots of previous seasons wouldn't be possible, as most of the key characters are required to be in the same place at the same time.
"I think this last season will take much longer to shoot because they can only use one unit because we're all in the same sort of scenes," he told the Independent . "We're all starting to occupy the same territory, we're all starting to be in the same storylines and so they can't [have two filming units] anymore."
Season 7 of Game of Thrones drew record-breaking audience figures, despite the fact that it was hit by a number of hacks and leaks. Initially scripts were taken directly from HBO , and this was followed by the theft of actual episodes from a distribution partner in India . Nevertheless, the season finale was seen by a total of 16.5 million viewers , making it the most watched episode in the show's history.

9 d ago Mashable :: Season 8 of 'Game of Thrones' will begin production on Sunday
Read on Mashable | Share | Tweet

If you're looking to do a reasonably-paced Game of Thrones rewatch, now is probably a good time to start. Liam Cunningham, who pays Davos Seaworth, told AM to DM Friday that the final season will begin production on Sunday.
As Ser Davos so kindly explained, Sunday and Monday will mark the official table reads for the final six episodes of Game of Thrones. For the week after that, the cast will rehearse, and then it's straight to filming. (Yes, it is okay to scream at this news.)

"My ass belongs to HBO for as long as it takes to get this done," Cunningham added.  Read more...
