The 15 Best Anthony Hopkins Roles Ranked

The 15 Best Anthony Hopkins Roles Ranked Sir Anthony Hopkins isn't a man that requires much introduction. He's one of the finest actors of his generation, breaking into the mainstream with his portrayal of the villainous Hannibal Lecter. However, his talent was noticed decades before "Silence of the Lambs," and he shined in roles like Richard the Lionheart and the paradoxical Captain Bligh. What makes Hopkins special isn't pretension or devotion to his craft, though. He's simply a consummate pro...

227 environmental activists were murdered last year, a new report found. That's more than 4 people per week.

Fikile Ntshangase was involved in legal action against a mining company when she was killed. Rob Symons/All Rise A record 227 environmental activists were murdered in 2020, a Global Witness report found. But that number is likely an undercount, and the group said the toll may rise in coming years. Many killings are linked to logging, mining, and agriculture, with Indigenous people heavily targeted.

All 8 Paul Thomas Anderson Feature Films Ranked Worst To Best

Paul Thomas Anderson is one of the most significant filmmakers of his generation, a director whose name alone is enough to generate anticipation for one of his films. Anderson's movies are characterized by methodical pacing, alienated characters, and striking imagery, and yet he's never been bound to just one genre, tone, or location. His films range from uproariously funny to crushingly emotional. Often, they manage to be both at the same time.Anderson's newest film, "Soggy Bottom," is a '70s c...

How the 9/11 attacks are taught in Southern California schools

Today’s children have grown up in the shadow of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. They have never known a world where the Twin Towers loomed over the Manhattan skyline, where taking an airplane flight didn’t require multiple layers of security or — until recently — where the American military wasn’t fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. The events of Sept. 11 aren’t formally part of high school history lessons  — California’s curriculum standards have not been updat...

Christian Pulisic returns as U.S. ties Canada in World Cup qualifier

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Two games into World Cup qualifying, a rebuilt U.S. soccer team is in trouble. Three starters are hurt. Key midfielder Weston McKennie didn’t dress because he violated team COVID protocols. Unable to break down a Canadian team that sat back with five defenders, the Americans wasted a second-half lead in a 1-1 draw Sunday night that left them with two points after two games. Failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup hangs over players and the American fan base like a never-endi...

How Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms Fleshed Out Raiden & Liu Kang’s Bond

Liu Kang and Raiden always had a special relationship that expressed itself in different ways. Mortal Kombat 11 showed that off beautifully with its poignant timeline-spanning montage and subsequent fusion. Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms changes that dynamic a bit by removing the rivalry and focusing solely on the positive aspects of the father-son relationship that have been just under the franchise’s bruised and blood-drenched skin. And that was by design. However, it’s impossible...

By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador — The United States showed promise but no ability to finish in its pandemic-delayed World Cup qualifying opener on Thursday night, playing to a scoreless tie with El Salvador in the type of Central American stadium that repeatedly has stymied the Americans.

The Jack Eichel Situation

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News, The Sabres deserve the criticism they are getting for not making the playoffs in 10 consecutive seasons. But there's not enough talk about how much responsibility Eichel bears for the last six seasons. And he bears some of it, even for all the good moments he's produced in the face of so much chaos and bad play around him. Your star players get all the plaudits in good times and the heavy arrows in times of trouble. Eichel should not b...
