Twitter/@Charlie_BurrisThe Texas Longhorns are in full meltdown mode. Following back-to-back awful losses due to special teams gaffes, the Longhorns are losing to TCU 50-7 late in the fourth quarter. During halftime, freshman cornerback Kris Boyd retweeted a message about transferring to Texas A&M, and now the Texas Rangers are jumping on the “Fire Charlie Strong” bandwagon. Or, at least one rogue social media manager is upset about the game, and was on the wrong Twitter account.Hey, what did I ever do to you @Rangers? pic.twitter.com/5OgWkUOVMi— Charlie Burris (@Charlie_Burris) October 3, 2015The tweet was deleted very quickly, but not before the internet captured it for all of eternity. There have been better college football Saturdays in Austin, that’s for sure.
Twitter/@asibo_Jim Harbaugh worked very hard to recruit De La Salle High School teammates Devin Asiasi and Boss Tagaloa this winter. Only one of the two blue-chip teammates, Asiasi, wound up signing with the Wolverines, but the two remain extremely close. Asiasi is set to head to UM, while Tagaloa will play at UCLA, and as their football paths diverge, Asiasi posted a very cool note about their friendship on Twitter.pic.twitter.com/CuyWCg2ZNo— Devin Asiasi (@asibo_) June 18, 2016 We’re sure the two would have liked to play together at the next level, but they both found the schools that are right for them as individuals. That is even more important.MORE FROM COLLEGE SPUN:The 10 Most Aggressive Fan Bases In CFBIn Photos: Golfer Paige SpiranacESPN Makes Decision On Dick Vitale
Twitter Advertisement Advertisement TIFF is an organization caught in the middle of this turbulent social moment, an event both dedicated to celebrating a broken industry – and to fixing it. As the new festival unspools, TIFF has just appointed a woman, the American indie film champion Joana Vicente, as its co-director; it can report another increase in female directors on its program, and it is continuing a new initiative promoting women’s careers in film: In 2018, the festival is a more female-centric organization offering an increasingly diverse lineup. So, TIFF has the #MeToo wind in its sails, but is the voyage ahead just a late-summer pleasure cruise or a long trip to different shores? Harvey Weinstein, Bryan Cranston and Neil Burger at a TIFF party in 2017. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment It’s September and Hollywood has come to town. The stars dutifully twinkle at the parties celebrating their premieres. At the Thompson, Nicole Kidman is spotted with George Clooney; at the Citizen, Jessica Chastain appears with celebrated screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. And at the Cactus Club, Benedict Cumberbatch, star of a new movie called The Current War, is photographed alongside his producer, super mogul Harvey Weinstein.That was TIFF 2017. A year later, a new crop of actors is promoting a new crop of films but Weinstein, who now faces six sexual assault charges in New York, will not be in attendance. Meanwhile, celebrity hunters debate whether actors Casey Affleck, who settled two sexual-harassment claims out of court in 2010, or Emile Hirsch, convicted of attacking a woman at party in 2015, will show their faces on the red carpet when their new films are unveiled. Their names did not appear on a guest list released to media last week.It has been 11 months since The New York Times and The New Yorker outed Weinstein as an alleged sexual predator, unleashing hundreds of similar accusations that used the social-media hashtag #MeToo to tear the veil off widespread sexual harassment in the entertainment and media industries. And there are still many days when sexism in the film business seems intractable. Every other film with a female lead or a female director refers to #MeToo in its media material, but male characters still account for most protagonists in big-budget Hollywood movies while less than a quarter of those productions employ female directors, writers, or cinematographers – a number that hasn’t changed since the 1990s.

If Modi becomes the prime minister again, there will be no election in the country, warned Kejriwal.

Commenting on the recent viral video of a Muslim family being brutally beaten by goons, he said that it is being done in the name of Hindutva although nowhere in Hindu religion is written to beat the Muslims or for that matter anyone. Comparing the situation to the one prevailing in Germany during Hitler’s rule where people were beaten publicly if they raised their voices against Hitler’s regime, he said “we are facing the same conditions in our country today. Minorities are beaten up if they ask any questions about the government and its actions.” The chief minister made the claim referring to the recent incident involving a “brutal” attack on the members of Muslim family in Gurugram, and said the people from minority community were being “beaten up, harassed and murdered today without any fault”. “Today, anyone who questions the Modi government is labelled an ‘anti-national’,” he added. The seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi will go to polls on May 12.
