FIFA opens anti-gay case for Mexican chants

10:14 AM ET FIFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Mexico after alleged anti-gay chants by fans during their World Cup win over Germany on Sunday. Some Mexican supporters chanted a slur when Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer prepared to take a goal kick in the 24th minute. Mexico fans have long shouted an insult at goalkeepers that rights groups argue is discriminatory. Those who have defended the chant insist there is no intent to discriminate. FIFA fined Mexico and a number of other Latin American teams several times during World Cup qualifiers over the slurs. The Court of Arbitration for Sport cancelled two fines against Mexico in November, although it also ruled the chant was “insulting” and left other fines in force. Mexico’s football federation (FMF) has in ...

20 actors who didn’t marry actors

When it comes to the laws of dating in Hollywood, musicians are typically drawn to models, while actors tend to gravitate toward other actors. They meet on set while filming a movie – we’re looking at you, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – or cross paths during an industry event and end up living happily ever after. For some stars, though, it’s more appealing to settle down with someone who’s not in the spotlight, like an agent, an artist, or, in the case of Matt Damon, a Miami Beach bartender. George Clooney made headlines when he married civil rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, whose impressive accomplishments more than match up to his acting career, and ballet professional Benjamin Millepied danced his way into Natalie Portman‘s heart when they tied the knot ...

Melania Trump Calls on ‘Both Sides’ to End Family Separation

WASHINGTON — Melania Trump urged “both sides of the aisle” on Sunday to come together to stop federal authorities from separating children from their parents when apprehended at the border, a rare public intervention in an issue that has generated enormous criticism of her husband. In a statement issued by her office, the first lady expressed empathy for affected families, saying the country should be governed “with a heart,” but did not directly take issue with President Trump’s policy. Instead, by saying that “both sides” needed to agree, she adopted his argument that the situation was caused by political stalemate rather than a policy he initiated. “Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve succe...

WHO Says Compulsive Video-Game Playing Could Be Mental Health Problem

Obsessive video gamers know how to anticipate dangers in virtual worlds. The World Health Organization says they now should be on guard for a danger in the real world: spending too much time playing. In its latest revision to a disease classification manual, the U.N. health agency said Monday that compulsively playing video games now qualifies as a mental health condition. The statement confirmed the fears of some parents but led critics to warn that it may risk stigmatizing too many young video players. WHO said classifying “gaming disorder” as a separate addiction will help governments, families and health care workers be more vigilant and prepared to identify the risks. The agency and other experts were quick to note that cases of the condition are still very rare, with no m...
