Police interrogate man for being black, lock down campus building

Reginald Andrade is the consumer manager of disability services at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. On September 14 he was walking across campus to work.

From the ACLU: But on September 14, campus police were waiting for me when I arrived at the reception desk at Whitmore. I had no idea why, but I knew it couldn’t be good. My heart started pounding.

The Changing Goalie Gear

from the CP at TSN, The aim, like the other streamlined goalie gear, is to boost scoring while at the same time rewarding athletic ability in the crease by eliminating unnecessary padding that wasn't protecting goalies, but instead simply helping them block pucks. In short, a 190-pound goalie and a 240-pound goalie will no longer cut the same figure on the ice. "Three or four years ago, talking to some of the best goalies in hockey ... they wanted us to try to find a way to ma...

While Chargers stumble, 25,000 fans stage high-energy party

The Chargers, in another fourth quarter meltdown, fumbled the team’s first season opener in Los Angeles in 57 years. But their fans — cheering in the stands or tailgating in the parking lot — gave a command performance at Carson’s StubHub Center on Sunday. Supporters filled nearly every seat in a venue often described as “intimate” because of its small size by NFL standards. It was a tight match against the Miami Dolphins, which dissolved into a 19-17 loss on a missed field goal in the final sec...

Listen to the New Voice of Kermit the Frog

A month after longtime Kermit performer Steve Whitmire was fired by Disney, the new voice of Kermit the Frog has debuted in an online clip. Matt Vogel just made his first public debut as the voice of Kermit, a role that has long been held by Whitmire since Jim Henson passed away in 1990, in a brief YouTube clip for the “Muppet Thought of the Week.” “Dreams are how we figure out where we want to go. Life is how we get there. I’m headed this way,” Kermit says in the video. It was an inconsp...

Trimmed Down Goalie Pants Won’t Equate To More Goals

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, Goal scoring in today’s NHL is on par with what it was in the early ’60s. For all the game’s added speed, power, and flash, goal scoring today is where it was in the leather-skate and wooden-stick era. One of the game’s greatest entertainment factors has been greatly diminished. Will the nip and tuck in goalie equipment help change that trend? Probably not. “We have no expectations with regards to goal scoring,” said Whitmore, “and reali...

Goalie Equipment Is A Work In Progress

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, This will tell you all you need to know about the NHL’s interminable squabbling over goalies and their equipment. Almost a year ago, the NHL pledged to finally wrestle this problem to the ground. To that end, they identified the goaltenders’ pants and their chest and arm protectors as their chief areas of concern, targeting the the pants first because that was, “the low-hanging fruit,” according to NHL goalie supervisor Kay Whitmore. The n...

I'm THAT Person Who Doesn't Drink At Happy Hour

Who doesn't love happy hour? It's a time to socialize with your friends and coworkers, get out of the office on time, and relax. But if you don't drink, happy hours may not be so relaxing — though it's not because of your lack of a buzz.The last time my team at Refinery29 had a happy hour, I scanned the bar's menu online beforehand. I knew everyone else was getting watermelon margaritas, so I noted the price before scanning the food menu. I decided that while everyone else ordered the margarita...

How To Start A Conversation In Just 30 Seconds

So you're at a networking event and you have no idea what to say to the person you've just met. Do you ask about their job, even though it sounds boring? Inquire about what movies they've seen recently, secretly praying they're not into sci-fi (or whatever genre you don't know anything about)?Starting a conversation can be challenging, whether it's in the office kitchen or at a friend of a friend's birthday party. You don't want to rely on the same old, "Where do you work?" question, but you al...

"Independence Day: Resurgence" Should Have Been Better - Much Better

Movie Review - Jackie K Cooper "Independence Day: Resurgence" (20th Century Fox) "Independence Day: Resurgence" is a sequel that should automatically be a hit. First off it has a reason for being. We all knew the aliens that attacked earth in the first film would be back some day. Plus the inspiring President played by Bill Pullman did not die in the first film so he should still be around for the sequel as should those...

Why I Refuse To See Independence Day: Resurgence

Let me start off this rant by declaring my absolute love for Independence Day, Roland Emmerich's totally out-there, bombastic, alien-invasion flick starring Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, and Bill Pullman. I've been a huge fan of the film since its blockbuster summer of 1996. My best friend and I saw it four times in the theater. As goofy middle schoolers, we sat giddily in the back of the theater, shouting at the screen. I still watch it at least once a year (on July Fourth weekend, of course). I ...

Review: ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Shoots for the Moon, Lands in Crazytown

When Independence Day hit theaters in 1996, it brought the spectacle of global destruction, exciting action, some decent laughs, and an ensemble of memorable characters with nary a huge movie star in sight. Twenty years later, Independence Day: Resurgence attempts to deliver all that again. But despite a plot point out of left field that shifts the sequel away from a simple retread of the original and toward an absolute bonkers, universe-expanding set-up for a sequel, this follow-up falls flat ...

Everything We Know About the Independence Day Aliens

Our Independence Day Aliens guide has everything you need to know about everyone’s favorite destroyers of mankind It’s a common misconception that the aliens from Independence Day invaded the Earth on the 4th of July. Even 20th Century Fox’s recent Las Vegas Ruins viral video got that wrong. Within the world of the film, the aliens arrived on July 2 and attacked on July 3. The 4th of July was the day we fought back. After 20 years, the aliens are back this week in Independence Day: Resurgence...

‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Buzz: Does Roland Emmerich’s Sequel Sink or Soar?

A few days ago news broke that Independence Day: Resurgence would not screen for critics until Friday — the morning after the film hits theaters for the general public. That did not seem to bode well for the movie. Generally speaking, if a studio is working that hard to keep critics from reviewing a movie, it’s because they expect the reviews will be terrible. But those reports were only half true. While American critics won’t see Independence Day: Resurgence until Friday, journalists in other ...

Even though she’s transitioning to more dramatic roles, she’s already fighting off two cinematic alien invasions this year!

‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Video Reveals How Brent Spiner’s Dr. Okun Is Still Alive

With just a few days until Independence Day: Resurgence hits theaters, we still don’t know how good this sequel is going to be. As we reported over the weekend, the only screening being made available to press and critics will be on Friday morning, about 15 hours after the general public is able to see the movie at Thursday night preview screenings around the country. That either means the movie isn’t very good, there’s a secret they don’t want spoiled, or since their confidence in X-Men: Apoca...
