The lament of actor Terry Crews: Even a hulking ex-linebacker can be sexually harassed in Hollywood

Actor Terry Crews discussed the alleged sexual assault he experienced by a Hollywood agent during a party on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Nov. 15. (ABC News) Terry Crews is a hulk of a man, standing at 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighing in at 240 pounds. He was a linebacker in the National Football League in the early 1990s, who parlayed his sparkling personality and comic talent into a successful acting career. Moviegoers likely know Crews from his roles in absurdist comedies like “White Chicks” and “Blended” while television fans might recognize him from “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” or “Everybody Hates Chris.” As intimidating, famous and beloved as the actor is, he wants everyone to know that even he felt afraid to come forward with his own story of being sexually harassed la...

Fact Checker: Trump says the tax bill will ‘cost me a fortune.’ That’s false.

In short, no. The president would benefit mightily from either version of the GOP tax bill. (Meg Kelly/The Washington Post) “This is going to cost me a fortune, this thing, believe me. This is not good for me. . . . I think my accountants are going crazy right now.”— President Trump, remarks on tax plan, St. Charles, Mo., Nov. 29, 2017 There have been many times when we have thrown patently ridiculous claims made by the president into our database of false and misleading claims, only to decide later that we need to do a full fact check because the president keeps repeating the falsehood. With the tax bill passed in the House and pending in the Senate, this is one of those moments. Back in September, Trump claimed he would not benefit from the tax plan, twice in offhand remarks with reporte...

30 careers that are more likely to lead to divorce

You’ve heard the statistic before: Half of all marriages end in divorce. Whether that number still holds true is debatable, but for young married people today, it’s their career — or their spouses’ — that’s leading to higher divorce rates. Workers in certain industries are seeing higher divorce rates by age 30, according to a new analysis of U.S. Census Data from career website Zippia. Job holders with the highest chance of divorce are those enlisted in the military. In fact, first-line enlisted military supervisors hold the top spot in the study with a 30 percent divorce rate. Other jobs that often result in divorce papers are in the engineering, technical trades, service industry and carpentry fields. Bottom line: You might want to proceed with caution when it com...

Futures point to a higher open; OPEC, tax news takes center stage

© Provided by CNBC U.S. stock index futures pointed to a positive open Thursday, lifted by a strong performance from Wall Street in the previous session, as investors geared up for an all-important OPEC meeting. In the previous session, the Dow Jones industrial average closed at an all-time high as market-watchers bet the U.S. economy’s momentum would continue, following positive GDP data. Another area that has boosted markets is recent news that the Senate took a step towards passing a bill aimed at reforming the U.S. tax code on Tuesday. With the Senate Budget Committee having approved the Senate’s tax plan, this brings the upper chamber closer to a floor vote, slated to occur Thursday. Investors have been eagerly awaiting tax reform since last year’s election, yet doub...

US troops get freeze-dried plasma for battlefield bloodshed

RALEIGH, N.C. — All of the U.S. military’s special operations fighters sent off to warzones and raids now have an essential addition to their first-aid kits: freeze-dried blood plasma. Last month, the Marines Corps’ special ops units became the last of the military branches to begin carrying freeze-dried plasma. The plasma helps clot blood and can prevent badly wounded troops from bleeding to death on the battlefield. It saved Army Cpl. Josh Hargis’ life. He lost parts of both legs in 2013 when he stepped on a land mine during a midnight raid in Afghanistan. The medic in his Ranger unit used the freeze-dried plasma to keep him alive on the battlefield for more than 90 minutes until he could be evacuated by helicopter. The medic, Sgt. Bryan Anderson, said having plasma rea...

Suspect in killing of Texas trooper viciously attacked another cop in 2015: Police

Newly released dashcam video shows the suspect in last week’s murder of a Texas trooper brutally assaulting a Smith County deputy in 2015. The confrontation between Dabrett Black and Smith County Deputy Rigele Dean occurred in March 2015 after Dean spotted Black walking on the side of the road while he was en route to a domestic assault call, according to Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA.

Black was arrested and charged with murder in the death of Texas Department of Pub...

Drake Tried His Hand As a Sideline Reporter for the NBA’s Toronto Raptors…And it Wasn’t a Slam Dunk

Drake’s a beast of hip-hip. He’s no slouch at acting either. Now he’s gone total ball-hog with a stint as a sideline reporter for his hometown Toronto Raptors. It wasn’t his slickest performance. Drizzy looked chilled as he sat on the sidelines and shared his thoughts on the game for the fans back home as the Raptors took on (and beat) the Charlotte Hornets at Air Canada Center. The rapper also stepped up for an on-air chat with the Raptors’ all-star guard Kyle Lowry, who dropped a season-high 36 points in his team’s 126-113 win.  .@Drake on broadcast alert pic.twitter.com/DauGMIMa9j — Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) November 30, 2017 Drake had a nervy start as he nearly flubbed Lowry’s stats-line then made a rookie mistake of pulling the mic from the baller as he was in his flow.

Mayor of London: Trump Would Not Be Welcome After Retweeting ‘Vile’ Group

Donald Trump is a persona non grata in Britain. Ever since Theresa May extended an invitation to the president to come visit the Queen, he has rankled the nation with his off-the-cuff comments about terror attacks in Britain and now with his latest provocation: the sharing of far-right videos and the lashing out against the prime minister for telling him he was wrong. Sadiq Khan Photographer: Jason Alden/Bloomberg President Trump has used Twitter to promote a vile, extremist group that exists solely to sow division and hatred in our country. It’s increasingly clear that any official visit from President Trump to Britain would not be welcomed. https://t.co/rwJJ5saSAb pic.twitter.com/bus3kMWIfk — Mayor of London (@MayorofLondon) November 30, 2017 “I have previously called on Theresa Ma...

Immigration Falls After Brexit Vote as EU Nationals Quit U.K.

Net migration to the U.K. dropped by more than 100,000 in the year following the Brexit referendum, according to official figures published on Thursday. Arrivals outnumbered departures by 230,000 in the 12 months through June, the lowest figure since the end of 2013, the Office for National Statistics in London said. Net migration stood at a record 336,000 in the year before the referendum. European Union nationals shunning Britain accounted for much of the change. EU immigration fell by 54,000 to 230,000 and emigration among citizens of the bloc rose by 28,000 to 123,000, the highest since at least 2008. The data will be welcomed by Prime Minister Theresa May, who has promised to cut annual net migration to the “tens of thousands,” but business leaders say the loss of foreign workers risk...
