Gawd I hope there's video of this.

KU cheerleaders say they were stripped naked during hazing by alums, senior squad members

Quote:
The University of Kansas cheer team is on probation following allegations of a hazing incident that occurred last July, with senior squad members and alumnae accused of stripping first-year members during an initiation and allowing them to be seen by male alumni.

Anyone shocked?

GOOGLE IS LISTING “NAZISM” AS THE IDEOLOGY OF THE CALIFORNIA REPUBLICAN PARTY

Less than one week before the California primary, Google is listing “Nazism” as the ideology of the California Republican Party.

In the “knowledge panel” that provides easy access to information next to search results, Google lists “Nazism” as an “ideology” of the party. The word “Nazism” is hyperlinked to a secondary page that shows “Nazism” alongside other “ideologies” of California Republicans like “Conservatism,” "Market liberalism,” “Fiscal conservatism,” and “Green conservatism.”

California voters have been casting their absentee ballots for weeks ahead of the next Tuesday’s statewide primary elections which will help determine the majority in the House of Representative and the potential next Governor of the world’s fifth largest economy.

But voters looking for information by searching “California Republicans” or “California Republican Party” are getting “Nazism” next to their search results thanks to Google.

Of course, it was an "accident" that should've been caught...The usual...

BUT!...

Notice (once again) that these "accidents" just seem to overwhelmingly happen to the Right and rarely the Left...

Funny how that just randomly happens...Heads came up twice and tails 98 times...Perfectly understandable...

Hmmmmm.

2 Vietnamese tourists found fatally stabbed in Las Vegas hotel

Police are investigating the homicide of two Vietnamese tourists who were found fatally stabbed in their Las Vegas Strip hotel on Friday.

The man and woman, whose identities have not been released, were found in a room at Circus Circus hotel and casino. Police Lt. Ray Spencer told reporters both victims were stabbed multiple times.

The couple were in Las Vegas as part of a tour group that arrived in Las Vegas Thursday night and were heading on a trip to the Grand Canyon on Friday.

Police said hotel security did a welfare check after members of group alerted the couple were not on the excursion, Fox 5 Vegas reported.

Spencer said investigators believe the suspect or suspects were involved in an argument that a person reported hearing in the room early Friday morning.

Police said there no suspects and they have made no immediate arrest.

Members of the group were brought in for questioning, but the language barrier provided some challenges, Fox 5 Vegas reported.

According to Spencer, there was no active threat to guest safety at the hotel.

Circus Circus is located near the north end of the Las Vegas Strip. MGM Resorts International, the hotelís owner, said in a statement that they are cooperating with the investigation.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Is somethin' wrong with Eddie Scissorhands?

'He looks ill': Fan fears for Johnny Depp after he appears pale and gaunt during European tour with his band

Quote:
Photographs of Johnny Depp posing with fans in Russia over the last week have sparked fears among some that the actor is 'ill'.

Depp, 54, happily posed for two photographs with female fans before setting off for a performance with his band, The Hollywood Vampires.

The photographs were taken at the Four Seasons hotel in St. Petersburg.

The band performed in the city on Wednesday night after playing in Moscow two nights earlier.

The women shared them excitedly on social media afterwards but, among comments from other fans who told them how lucky they were to have met their idol, were concerns over Depp's appearance.

2,505 naked Irish women....

That's a whole lot of red carpet.

Irish women bare all in record-breaking skinny dip

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Thousands of Irish women shed their inhibitions and their clothes on a secluded beach fifty kilometers south of Dublin on Saturday for a world-record setting “skinny dip” to raise funds for a children’s cancer charity.

Lucia Sinigagliesi, the Guinness World Records official that adjudicated the naked swim, said that 2505 women spent at least five minutes in the sea to set a new world record.

The previous record was set in Western Australia in 2015 when 786 participants swam naked to promote a positive body image near the regional capital Perth, in waters that are usually around 23 degrees centigrade at that time of year.

On Saturday, the sea temperature off Magheramore beach, where the Irish swim was held, was a bracing 12 degrees, despite a recent spell of warm weather.


The swim has been an annual event since it was started by Dubliner Dee Featherstone in 2013, just weeks after her own mastectomy. The events have raised more than 153,000 euro, not including what will be raised this year.

“Oh my god it was amazing. I have never been naked in front of anybody before, except my husband, and it was brilliant and bracing. It was great craic,” Deirdre Betson from Dunboyne told a Reuters reporter after leaving the water.

“We are all different shapes and sizes and ages and it was just super.”

This year the money raised will go to Aoibheann’s Pink Tie, a charity set up in 2010 by Mick Rochford and Jimmy Norman, after Jimmy’s daughter Aoibheann died from cancer aged 8 years.

“Aoibheann went to school with my daughter. She would have been seventeen this year. We did it in her memory,” said Betson.

Good thing she's hawt because she def isn't gonna snag a job that requires her to use her noggin'.

Race officials claim it wasn't her fault but it's more fun to blame her.

Winnie Harlow's checkered flag fiasco ends Formula One race early

The Formula One Canadian Grand Prix ended a lap early on Sunday, but not because of an accident or the weather. The race officials just messed up.

Canadian supermodel Winnie Harlow waved the checkered flag at the end of lap 69 of a scheduled 70, throwing race leader Sebastian Vettel for a loop.

"I was a bit confused. I told them [his team] I don't think the race is over yet," Vettel said after the race, noting that the lap counter in his car read 69.

Some F1 fans took to Twitter to blame the mishap on Harlow, but a Formula One spokesman said that there was a communications issue between race control and the starter on the stand with her, who was responsible for telling her when to wave the flag.

The situation was potentially dangerous, as race staff and team members often enter the track immediately following the completion of an event, assuming the cars have slowed down. In this case, the cars were still going full speed on what should have been the final lap as the drivers waited for clarification on the situation. Fortunately, no one was harmed.

Harlow, a model with vitiligo who rose to fame as a contestant on "America’s Next Top Model," tweeted after the race, “‘It wasn’t me’ *SHAGGY VOICE*” — a reference to a song by the Jamaican singer.

In accordance with Formula One rules for races that are ended too early, the results of the last completed lap, 68 in this case, were used to record the final results. As no passes were made on lap 69, this didn’t affect the outcome, but it did negate a fastest lap time that was recorded by Daniel Ricciardo, who finished in fourth place.

It was Vettel’s 50th win of his career, making him the fourth Formula One driver to reach that milestone. He is also the season's points leader.

The AP contributed to this report.

Faith in humanity restored.

3-year-old with Stage 4 cancer showered with more than 1,000 birthday cards

Three-year-old Grace Lynn Whited from Tuolumne County, California, received a big birthday wish, according to KOVR-TV: more than 1,000 birthday cards from those touched by her serious medical diagnosis.

What’s the background?

Last week, the station reported on Grace and her grave condition for the first time. Since then, her family has been inundated with over 1,000 birthday cards.

Doctors diagnosed Grace with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma about three weeks ago after her family noticed that something was not quite right with their daughter.

“She just wasn’t herself,” Grace’s mother, Jessica, said. “She didn’t want to walk, she said her legs hurt, her bruises wouldn’t go away.”


After several doctor’s visits and tests, physicians delivered the frightening news: Grace was suffering from cancer. Grace began chemotherapy treatment, and according to her family, was responding well to the treatment.

“She’s a champ,” Jessica told KOVR. “Some things are rough, they’re really hard, and she gets scared and cries, but most things she goes with it and is really strong.”

When asked what she wanted for her 4th birthday next month, Grace said she wanted a pink horse.

“She loves opening cards and us reading to her and just likes hearing from people,” Jessica said, and provided the station with a mailing address to those who felt moved to send birthday cards.

Grace turns 4 on July 26. Cards can be mailed to:

Grace Lynn Whited
P.O Box 2164
Columbia, CA 95310

What’s happening now?

A week after KOVR ran their initial story, the Whited family reportedly received more than 1,000 cards for Grace’s upcoming birthday.

KOVR caught up with Jessica, who said, “It’s crazy how many love my little girl, and they don’t even know her.”

A smiling Grace told the station, “We got a lot of cards.”

Jessica added, “I did not imagine it would be this much, they even had to put a key in the [P.O. Box] so I would go into another locker because there was not enough room.”

Also, a California woman who was touched by Grace’s story is working on fulfilling the birthday girl’s wish of a pink horse.

Brenna Auld, a Yuba City resident, said that she plans to paint her own horse pink and loan it to the girl for her birthday.

“I hope being able to have a pink horse, will give her even more reason to fight,” Auld said.

The family started a GoFundMe page to cover expenses related to Grace’s treatment and has launched a Facebook page to update on the young girl’s progress.

At this time, the GoFundMe page has received more than $24,000 dollars in donations.
