‘Making a Murderer’s’ Brendan Dassey Loses Bid to Take Case to Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to take up the case of Wisconsin teen Brendan Dassey, who was featured in the hit Netflix documentary series “Making a Murderer.” Dassey is serving a life sentence after being convicted along with his uncle, Steven Avery, for the 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach. The nation’s highest court gave […]



Teen Mom’s Kailyn Lowry Says She’d Rather Date Women as She Loses Partial Custody of Son Lux

Kailyn Lowry is opening up about her love life and turning her back on men (for the moment).

The mother of three revealed she wasn’t open to dating men after her relationship with longtime friend Chris Lopez fell apart. The two share 8-month-old son Lux Russell.

While speaking with friend Lindsie Chrisley and MTV producer J.C. before recording for their podcast, Lowry admitted she hadn’t wanted to date men since her break up with Lopez.

“Are you looking for a guy or a girl?” J.C. asked her.

“I just think that a girl would get me more — like they have more patience and whatever,” Lowry, 26, said. “But I also compare everyone to Chris, and right now, I just… every man is like Chris. I want nothing to do with you. I had been with girls before Chris.”

Lindsie asked, “But do you feel like you don’t want to be with a man because of him?”

“I just want to stay far away from men right now,” Lowry said.

During a podcast episode in November, Lowry revealed she was dating a woman, who fans speculated was her friend Dominique Potter.

“We were friends for a year and so it kind of just turned into ,” Lowry said. “So, it’s not like she was trying to wine and dine me to ask me to be her girlfriend, you know what I mean? It more or less just happened.”

Later in the episode, the MTV star became furious when Lopez took her to court after he filed for emergency visitation rights to see their son.

During a call with a friend, while driving away from the courthouse, Lowry unleashed her worries, saying, “I had to testify against Chris. He got supervised visits for the next four weeks, and then court again on the 29th. He gets to have the baby for five hours. The thing that pisses me off is that his aunt is now the one supervising the visits, so she has to be there.”

“Why can’t the person who supervises the visits be a neutral party? I don’t trust his family to be there,” she admitted.

“Nothing makes me feel better because this could all change on the 29th,” she continued. “I’m conflicted because I got what I wanted for Lux, which is supervised visits but I’m also upset, still. There’s no winning. At the end of the day, Lux still loses because he won’t have both parents.”

Lowry has two other sons from previous relationships. She shares her oldest son Isaac with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera, and second son Lincoln with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.

Teen Mom 2 airs Monday nights on MTV at 9 p.m. ET.

Pro Evolution Soccer Loses Champions League License

Konami’s 10-year partnership with the UEFA Champions League will come to a close this year.

Club football’s most prestigious cup has been a part of Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer series since 2008. The football franchise was known for featuring the competition as a playable tournament in-game, as well as offering special promotions in relation to the league in its MyClub game mode.

However, following the Champions League final in Kyiv this May, Konami will no longer hold exclusive rights to feature the competition in-game.

Based on the UEFA statement, it’s unclear if the decision stems from UEFA, Konami, or is a mutual choice.

Al Gore on Why the U.S. Loses Jobs, Power (and Planet Earth) by Leaving the Paris Climate Agreement

President Donald Trump’s controversial decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement was more than “inconvenient” for the U.S. — it threatens jobs, our standing in the world — and most of all, our planet, says former Vice President Al Gore.

“This is as serious as it gets,” the longtime environmentalist tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

“What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come true,” says Gore, who warned the world about the catastrophic effects of climate change in his 2006 Academy Award-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. He is following up that documentary with An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which premieres in August.

“What they are telling us now will happen in the future if we don’t stop using the atmosphere as an open sewer includes the threat that human civilization itself will be in danger,” says Gore, who met with President Trump and his daughter, Ivanka Trump, after the election to discuss climate change.

“We are in a race against time,” says Gore.

The aim of the 2015 global agreement, which had the world cheering when it was ratified, is to reduce carbon emissions as fast as possible to prevent the earth from warming by more than 2 degrees Celsius in this century.

Temperatures that rise higher than 2 degrees Celsius could trigger catastrophic — and irreversible — environmental effects we can no longer control, such as food and water shortages, massive drought, more flooding, extreme weather, the rampant spread of disease and dangers posed by rising seas, say scientists.


The climate crisis also poses a threat to our national security — and life as we know it, say experts.

Calling the agreement a “bad deal” for the country that would cost coal miners their jobs, Trump — with the backing of 22 U.S. Senators including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — withdrew the U.S. from the international agreement.

While Trump insisted he made the right decision for the nation, his decision drew ire from major companies, world leaders and citizens around the globe.

But going green, says Gore and others, will actually boost the economy like never before. “Jobs in the solar industry are increasing 17 times faster than other jobs are increasing in the U.S.,” he says.

The fastest growing job of all? “Wind turbine technician,” he says.

“According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, that will be the fastest growing job in the next ten years,” he says.

All over the world, tens of millions of new jobs in renewable energy, new technologies and sustainability are opening up, he says.

The Sustainability Revolution, as he calls it, “is happening all over the world. It has the scope and magnitude of the industrial revolution but the speed of the digital information revolution and it’s changing everything for the better.”

Solar and wind energy, batteries and hundreds of other efficiency technologies are now becoming much cheaper, far more rapidly than anyone predicted, he says.

“It’s almost like the computer chip revolution and the mobile phone revolution where products got much cheaper, faster than anyone could have imagined, even as their quality improved by leaps and bounds.”

Power Vacuum

Not only is the U.S. losing out on economic and trade opportunities by opting out of the agreement, but it is giving up its standing as the leader of the world, leaving a void that other nations, like China, are eager to fill, says Gore.

Withdrawing our country from the pact “has isolated the U.S. in the world community,” he adds.

By leaving the agreement, the U.S. gave away any say in how the world will tackle the climate crisis in the future, he says.

“The real risk is that all of these other countries will retaliate against the U.S. by trading among themselves and concentrating new jobs in solar and wind in their countries and not the U.S.,” he says.

“They have the legal right now to put up barriers against U.S. products that don’t bear any price for carbon pollution.”

‘We Still Have a Chance’

While the world still has a lot to do to head off catastrophe, “we definitely still have a chance,” he says.

While his upcoming film, An Inconvenient Sequel, will focus on how serious this crisis is, it will also detail how “available” solutions are now, he says.

“The big change from 10 years ago is that solar, wind and other renewable technologies are now getting so cheap that it’s easy to switch over,” he says.

Also encouraging? How U.S. businesses including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, GE and others, and individual cities and states are moving on without Trump to solve the climate crisis.

On June 1, California, New York and Washington formed the U.S. Climate Alliance, which is committed to upholding the country’s goals under the Paris Agreement and take aggressive action against the climate crisis.

Since then, 10 states including Connecticut, Hawaii and Virginia have joined the coalition.

“We’re going to meet the commitments under the climate agreement, regardless of what President Trump does,” says Gore.

“If we all make up our minds to do this, we can all solve the climate crisis.”

‘Price Is Right’ Contestant Breaks Plinko Record, Loses His Mind In The Process

It’s not every day you can lead a chant of your own name. 

In fact, don’t do that. That should never happen. The one exception is if your name is Ryan and you’re breaking the Plinko record. 

On Thursday’s episode of “The Price is Right,” contestant Ryan Belz got the chance to play Plinko, and the guy made the most of it. The contestant’s chips landed in the $ 10,000 slot three times, and he ended up with a total of $ 31,500.

For those who don’t know “Price is Right” history off the top of your head, host Drew Carey said that’s a new Plinko record.

And Belz lost his mind the whole time.

If you weren’t aware, Belz is somewhat of a “Price is Right” fan. You know, somewhat …

In a video on TMZ, the contestant said he’s such a fanatic of the show that he scheduled his classes at Penn State around “Price is Right” so he could watch. Belz even has an impression of the “Price is Right” announcer George Gray.

He said he’s not allowed to appear on the show for another 10 years now, but added, “10 years, mark my word, you know where I’ll be.”

Seth Meyers Loses It Over Thanksgiving’s Proximity To Christmas

Seth Meyers clearly isn’t in the holiday spirit yet.

The “Late Night” host hilariously lost his cool while talking about the proximity of Thanksgiving to Christmas in a spoof segment broadcast on Thursday night.

You know I usually don’t air my personal opinions on the show, but this one has actually gotten me in trouble in the past,” the comedian said, before launching into his tirade.

Unfortunately, a voiceover artist claimed that NBC “network policy” prevented it from broadcasting his comments.

“But due to a technical issue, we were unable to edit this portion of the show,” the voiceover man added ― before summarizing Meyers’ diatribe, which included his suggestion that having two turkey-eating holidays within a month of each other was “totally wack” and it was all part of a fitness and holiday industry conspiracy to sell more gym memberships come January.

See Meyers’ full tirade in the clip above.

Emotional Groom Loses It When He Sees His Bride Coming Down The Aisle

When groom Conner Courtney saw his bride Hannah make her way down the aisle, he was overcome with an intense rush of emotion, breaking down in tears.

The groom’s mom Kara recorded the powerful moment from the couple’s wedding earlier this month, and uploaded it to Facebook where it has been viewed more than 1.8 million times at the time of publication.

“I had to turn my back and breathe or I was going to lose it once the music started,” Conner told The Huffington Post. “I told Hannah’s brother [who was officiating the wedding] to tell me when she was there so I could turn around. The moment I saw her was like seeing my entire life right in front of me.”

“I’m usually good with handling my emotions, but after seeing her and her smile, it was tears of pure happiness and a radiance of love,” the groom said. “I wanted to express that to her, and that’s how it came out.”

Conner and Hannah — who first met at the gym in 2013 — tied the knot at the bride’s uncle’s home in Arcadia, Oklahoma on June 13 in a rustic-style celebration. Hannah told HuffPost that she “figured [she] would get a few tears out of Conner” at the ceremony, but was still taken aback by his passionate reaction.

“All I could do was smile the biggest smile and cry the happiest tears,” she said. “The look on Conner’s face made my heart feel like it was going to burst because I felt so full of love. But when I look back at that day now, I really am not surprised by his reaction because he shows me that much love every day.”

Watch the video above. Fast-forward to the 1:00 mark to see the big moment.

Principal Loses Job Over Misspelled School Sign

When a New Jersey public school principal was reassigned last week, the writing was on the wall.

Actually, it was on the school sign — which was misspelled at least twice.

Antoinette Young, the principal of Public School Number 20 in Paterson, New Jersey, was demoted to a vice principal position at another school after parents discovered a sign in front of the school’s side entrance had two serious spelling errors that went unnoticed for more than a week.

December was misspelled as “Dicember” and reports was spelled incorrectly as “reepor.” The number ‘1’ was also placed backwards on the sign, CBS New York reports.

The typo-riddled sign was up for days before school board member Corey Teague posted photos on social media.

“If this is how the administration takes care of signage how can we expect the students to do better? We must be held to a higher standard,” Teague wrote in an email accompanying the photos, NorthJersey.com reports.

Officials said a custodian was responsible for the sign’s spelling errors and added that the sign was placed near an entrance not normally used by staff, according to NJ.com.

After Teague’s photo of the misspelled school sign went viral, officials reassigned Young to a vice principal position at another school.

Boris Simon, the school’s current vice principal, will serve as principal in the interim.

District officials would not confirm the botched sign was the sole reason for the demotion.

Young had been principal at the 465-student school less than two years and was already under a “Corrective Action Plan” designed to address shortcomings in her performance, according to the New York Daily News.

Theater: Fuerza Bruta Loses Its “Wayra” With New Show

WAYRA — FUERZA BRUTA * 1/2 out of ****

If you’ve never seen any non-traditional theater, no Cirque Du Soleil or the countless circus troupes that have come in its wake, if you’ve never been to a rave or a spectacle like Stomp and Blue Man Group, I suppose Wayra might have some modest appeal as novelty.

Actually, I’m a newbie, somehow never having been to a Fuerza Bruta event before. So even though this edition reportedly recycles quite a few stunts from previous FB shows of the past, it was all new to me. Nonetheless, the almost determined lack of imagination in each bit (calling them skits would be pushing it), the avoidance of almost anything resembling choreography or humor, the refusal to do anything other than the minimal makes the evening a joyless affair for all but the most un-jaded 17 year old.

It begins and ends with anonymous tribalistic, techno music followed by a group of performers who float over the crowd in a big clump, waving and yelling enthusiastically while swinging back and forth. Though there is nothing challenging in the stunts performed (this is not a display of gymnastic or acrobatic skills of any note), it does demand the cast be athletic and energetic and they certainly did their best to rouse the crowd into a fun atmosphere. Still, this bit set the tone. Like the worst Saturday Night Live skits of the past 20 years, it offers some sliver of an idea (in this case, the cast dressed in “regular” clothes swinging out over the crowd) but instead of developing the idea and coming up with twists or a way to up the ante, they just repeat it a few times and then stop.

Other bits occur. Two women doing wire work (arguably the most challenging of the evening) run across a curtained wall encircling the audience, screaming and yelling as if something momentous were about to occur. They do a few somersaults, each one running to one end and then the other. Like most everything else in the show and what you see in the trailer above, it looks vaguely cool for a moment until you realize…that’s it.

The Man On The Treadmill is apparently a perennial feature and it comes the closest to what Wayra might have been if it actually tried to be something. Nothing actually happens but it does feel as if the skit progresses toward something. A man with a really bad commute is walking determinedly on a treadmill. It speeds up and he keeps going with Buster Keaton-like determination. Attendants place chairs and tables on the treadmill which he dodges while moving forward, always forward. People jump on the platform and he bumps and dodges past them. Eventually, a “brick wall” of cardboard boxes appears but he bursts through that too. He’s shot in the chest, but even this doesn’t stop him. On he goes. As with so much of the show, once I got the idea, I found more pleasure in observing how the technical team kept things running smoothly than in the actual skit. Still, this was definitely as close to art as they got, though it served mostly to put the rest of the show in stark contrast.

A pool interlude was a happy oasis in an evening that at least pretended to create an aura of tension and mayhem. In this bit, a plastic sort of swimming pool descends from the ceiling. We look up through the bottom and see a woman lit up. Again, it looks sort of cool. A paradise ensues, with four or five women playing around in the water, giggling and laughing and sliding. Here especially the lack of any visual imagination was painful. Literally all they do is take turns splashing through a puddle in the middle, with one woman sliding in from one corner and then another sliding in from another corner. It’s the sort of thing kids would do automatically and about just as much fun to watch.

Also, there was a creepy disconnect in this piece: it’s both “innocent” and salacious. Either would be fine. But if you want it to be innocent, don’t ask the women to wear clothing that’s revealing and if you want them to be Playboy Playmate naughty, don’t ask them to giggle like schoolgirls. Unless of course you’re going for a vibe that would appeal to traveling businessmen. (And my female guest wondered if the show paid for all these women to get bikini waxed regularly.) Worst of all, while this skit was briefly interesting visually (most were), it went on a little too long with no change in the tedious staging. Then, remarkably, once it was over it essentially repeated itself all over again, far outstaying its welcome.

Another nadir was the dance-off that took place on an anonymous set wheeled out towards the audience. The unflagging cast was living it up, as if having the time of their lives, yelling and whooping and sort of dancing in unison. Still yelling, they tossed plastic chairs with abandon (but oh so carefully so the attendants could catch them or keep them from sliding towards the crowd and then feed the chairs back up to the cast). Then they went to town on cardboard boxes and flimsy squares that they smooshed over their heads as the tiles burst into confetti of sorts. All of this was clear after about 30 seconds, but it was the entire extent of the bit. They jump up and down, yell gleefully and toss cardboard boxes off the stage onto the floor and then dance around and do it again. A certain tension developed as you wondered if this could possibly be it for the stunt. It was.

It was topped when the show went to elaborate lengths to pull a plastic see-through ceiling of sorts over the audience with an opening or two so cast members could peek down at us (gleefully of course). A long tube was attached to one opening and the guy from the treadmill bit was lowered down into it while a fan created a sort of wind tunnel effect and bits of paper swirled around him. Despite the trappings, all this amounted to was a guy hanging motionless from the ceiling via a wire.

Yes, he was inserted into a sort of condom-like wind tunnel that blew his hair back, but really he was just hanging there for a few minutes, stationary and alone, doing nothing, accomplishing nothing, with only the illusion of something happening taking place around him, scraps of confetti twisting past our hero like the detritus from a parade that passed by long before we arrived.
