The biggest secrets behind Edinburgh Castle

ADVERTISEMENT


Have you ever dreamed of living in your own castle? Perhaps you’ve imagined yourself gliding down the elegant stairs with a shawl around your shoulders just like a Disney queen? Or maybe you’ve dreamed of dancing in the great hall with Dumbledore and Hagrid? Well, there are countless castles around the world for you to peruse… but only for the day. You know, unless you marry a prince or princess. One of the most famous castles in the world is Edinburgh Castle, but did you know this fortress holds deep secrets within its walls?

It has a checkered history

Although we now accept witches, wizards, muggles, and squibs – there have been some members of the royal family who haven’t been so accepting of witchcraft. During the reign of King James V, witchcraft was considered one of the biggest sins in the world and was associated with evil. Because of this, society would burn witches at the stake in an attempt to rid them from our world, and that’s exactly what happened to Janet Douglas. Although it was clear that Janet was not a witch, the speculation was enough for King James V to take her and her family at the stake.

There’s a high chance it’s haunted

Do you believe in ghosts? Well, even if you don’t, you might change your mind after visiting Edinburgh Castle. Underneath this huge castle are large tunnels that snake their way around the castle and into the surrounding area. When they were first discovered, the royal court decided to send a bagpiper down into the tunnels to see what was down there. The idea was that those above the tunnels could track where he was using the sound of the instrument. However, the bagpipes soon went silent, and the body of the bagpiper was never found. To this day, visitors to the castle report that they can often hear the faint sound of bagpipes underneath the floor…

The royals lost the crown jewels within the castle

When England, Scotland and Wales joined forces, there was no longer any need for the Scottish crown jewels to be on display in the castle. So, the royal family decided to lock up the jewels in a chest and place it in a safe place in Edinburgh Castle. However, they soon forgot where this safe place was, and they were lost for more than 100 years! It wasn’t until Sir Walter Scott, and a few of his merry men made it their mission to find the jewels once and for all. Luckily they did, and the jewels have been out for the public to see ever since.

There’s a myth surrounding university students

As well as being famous for its castle, Edinburgh is also famous for its prestigious university – but the two rarely mix. In fact, there has been a long-held myth with the university students of Edinburgh that if they were ever to set foot inside the walls of the castle, they will fail all of their exams. While there is obviously no evidence to suggest that this is true, almost all of the students here avoid the castle like the plague, at least until they graduate completely.

The KGB altered the structure of the castle

Scottish castles and the KGB don’t seem like a great mix, but it seems as though Mikhail Gorbachev of the KGB actually altered the structure of the castle in 1984. During King James IV’s reign, he used a small window in the Great Hall to spy on those who walked inside of his home. When Gorbachev was set to visit the castle centuries later, he asked for this window to be filled in – for his safety. Although they did do this, Gorbachev later canceled his visit.

Edinburgh Castle is steeped in history, but we have a feeling you probably didn’t know all of these secrets they try to cover up…

While cord-cutting is doing an admirable job of decimating the profits of the major pay TV operators, AT&T is having some quiet success with its plan to fight back. DirecTV Now, AT&T’s signature $ 40-a-month streaming service that has been around for nearly two years, is still adding subscribers like crazy.

Elite getaways the world’s biggest stars visit to relax

ADVERTISEMENT


Have you ever wanted to experience how the other half live? Have you always wanted to scrap your yearly camping trip and opt for something a bit more fabulous? Do you swoon over your favorite celebs’ vacation Instagram stories? Well, you’re not alone. Thanks to social media, it’s now easier than ever to compare your lives to those of your favorite famous faces, which can often make you feel a little down in the dumps. Especially when it comes to your vacation. Thankfully, you’ll be happy to know that you can live like the rich and famous (at least for a week or two) if you check out the elite getaways the world’s biggest stars visit to relax.

St. Barts

If you fancy your chances of bumping into the likes of Beyonce, Leonardo DiCaprio, Martha Stewart or Ellen DeGeneres on your walk from your room to your breakfast table, you might want to book your flights to St. Barts. This Caribbean island gives you a taste of the Caribbean while giving you all of the culture and the food of France. From the beautiful golden sands to the yacht-filled harbor and the designer shops, St. Barts is constantly teeming with celebs who are looking for a little R&R. Could you be joining them?

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Known more commonly as Cabo, Cabo San Lucas is one of the most famous destinations in Mexico – and not just with college students on their Spring breaks! When they’re not filming the latest blockbuster, recording a hit album, or taking the mic as a television host, some of the biggest names in Hollywood make their way down to Mexico to embrace local culture. And when we say embrace the local culture, we really mean laze on the beach, drink margaritas, and eat yummy Mexican food.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai is known as the playground for the rich and famous, and every year thousands of celebs with cash to splash make their way to the United Arab Emirates for a spending spree. From the ridiculously overpriced (yet fabulous) hotel rooms to the incredible skyscrapers that feature Michelin-star restaurants, and the desert which is just begging to be surfed, Dubai has everything a rich celeb could possibly want. Yet, with more and more non-famous folk increasingly making their way to Dubai, it’s becoming even more accessible for the average Joe.

Aspen, Colorado

If you’re not fond of the warm weather and need to take a break just like Sofia Vergara and Kate Hudson, you might want to consider Aspen as your next vacation destination. Located in the snowy hills of Colorado, Aspen is the perfect place to grab your skis or your snowboard and unwind from the daily grind. Finish your day off with a little Apres-Ski and keep your eyes peeled for some of the famous faces of the world.

Necker Island, British Virgin Islands

Okay, this one is a bit more elite – but if you can wangle a room here, you know you’ve made it! As the private island of the Virgin business mogul, Richard Branson, Necker Island is an elite island that only a few have been able to enjoy. Guests are chosen by Branson himself, and those who visit might even have the pleasure of dining with the businessman himself. In the past, the Obamas, Kate Winslet, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford have all enjoyed the incredible beaches.

If you’re looking to get away for a relaxing vacation, you might also be looking for something a bit more impressive than your average vacation. This is why you need to take a leaf out of your favorite celebrities books and travel to where the elite hang out…

The Biggest Snubs and Surprises of the 2018 Emmy Nominations

The Emmy nominations were announced Thursday, and fans can count on contentious races. With awards stalwarts like Veep, Better Call Saul and House of Cards unable to contend for Emmys this year, several categories were left wide open for newcomers and long-overlooked vets.

Critics and fans will be delighted with a few inspiring storylines: Sandra Oh set a record. Issa Rae finally got nominated. The Americans may just pull off a win or two following its last season. But there were disappointments too: stans for David Lynch’s bizarre Twin Peaks, Emilia Clarke’s fearsome turn in Game of Thrones or the irreverent Netflix true crime spoof American Vandal will certainly be disappointed. But what can we do except head out into the parking lot and spray paint inappropriate pictures on the Emmy voters’ cars.

Here are all the Emmy snubs, surprises and storylines to come out of the nominations.

Netflix Nabs More Nominations Than HBO

For 17 years, HBO has always earned the most Emmy nominations. Netflix finally broke that streak, earning 112 nominations this year. The change signals a shift in the power dynamics between streaming services and the premium cable giant: AT&T recently told HBO they have to produce more shows to keep up with Netflix.

Sandra Oh Sets a New Milestone

Killing Eve’s Sandra Oh is the first Asian actor to be nominated for the Best Actress in a Drama category. The Canadian actor is no stranger to the Emmys: She’s been nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama five times.

But Killing Eve Gets Snubbed from Best Drama Category

To fans’ outrage, neither the breakout BBC America show nor Oh’s costar Jodi Comer earned Emmy nominations

Queer Eye Solidifies Its Place as a Cultural Phenomenon

Fourteen years ago, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy took home an Emmy. Now Netflix’s warmhearted reboot of that series, Queer Eye, has a chance to do the same. Queer Eye is arguably the frontrunner in the race: The show’s message of acceptance has become a rallying cry for fans in the past few months, and its five hosts have rocketed to stardom.

Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington Snubbed

All three Lannister siblings (Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) earned acting nominations. Dinklage even broke a record for most-nominated actor in the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama category. But the fantasy series’ two heroes, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington, were left out in the cold.

Issa Rae Is Finally Nominated

Insecure was immediately heralded as one of the best shows on TV when it premiered in 2016, but its creator and star Issa Rae was snubbed by the Emmys—until now. She get a nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy.

After Its Cancellation, Roseanne Gets Snubbed

Following Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet and the subsequent cancellation of Roseanne, perhaps it isn’t surprising that Emmy voters snubbed the show. However, Laurie Metcalf did earn a nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Twin Peaks: The Return Doesn’t Earn Any Major Nominations

The esoteric resurrection of Twin Peaks not only failed to get nominated for Best Limited Series. Its star-studded cast failed to get nominated in any of the acting categories. Fans are most upset by the snub of star Kyle MacLachlan.

The Americans’s Last Shot at Emmy Gold

Critical darling The Americans has long been overlooked by the Emmys. Neither of its two leads, Matthew Rhys or Keri Russell—a real-life couple who play married Soviet spies on the show—have ever won an acting award, and the show has never won best drama. A win for either actor of the show would be a wonderful sendoff for the show.

American Vandal, The Good Place, Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend are all snubbed

A handful of critical favorites in the comedy category failed to earn Emmy nominations on Thursday. Netflix’s surprisingly brilliant true crime parody American Vandal was overlooked despite boasting a rabid fandom. The mind-bending NBC comedy The Good Place was overlooked despite being the most innovative show on network television. The uplifting (and increasingly political) Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, both Golden Globe favorites, were snubbed as well.

Anthony Bourdain earns six nominations

Anthony Bourdain has won plenty of Emmys before, but his posthumous six nominations will make for an emotional ceremony following his untimely death.

When is Wimbledon 2018? Your Ultimate Guide to Tennis’ Biggest Tournament

Summer is officially here, which means the start of Wimbledon, tennis’ most prestigious event of the year, is just around the corner.

Wimbledon 2018 will be held from Monday, July 2, to Sunday, July 15, at the All England Club in South West London. The first round of play will begin on the 2nd at 11:30 a.m. BST on the outside courts and 1 p.m. on the main show courts: Centre Court and No. 1 Court. The women’s singles final will take place on the second-to-last day, Saturday, July 14, followed by the men’s singles final on the 15th.

Wimbledon is not only the oldest tennis tournament in the world, but also, along with the Australian Open, French Open and U.S. Open, one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments. It is the only major still played on grass.

Here’s everything you need to know—from the Wimbledon schedule to the deal with Wimbledon prize money—about The Championships, Wimbledon.

Where does the action go down?

Wimbledon 2018, just as the tournament has since 1877, will take place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London.

Matches with star appeal—a.k.a. those involving top-seeded players or local favorites—generally take place on the club’s two main show courts, Centre Court and No.1 Court, with the finals and semifinals of main events like men’s and women’s singles always reserved for Centre Court. But don’t be fooled, there’s still plenty of action to catch on the club’s remaining 17 courts.

Unfortunately, there were a number of player complaints last year about the condition of the Wimbledon courts, with Britain’s number one seed Andy Murray describing the playing surface of Centre Court as “not as good as previous years.”

The Wimbledon scheduling committee has also previously come under fire for assigning higher-profile courts to men’s matches rather than women’s.

Who is playing at Wimbledon 2018?

Venus Williams awaits a serve from Ana Konjuh at Wimbledon 2017

There’s going to be plenty of top tennis talent to keep an eye out for at Wimbledon 2018. In addition to last year’s women’s and men’s champions, Garbiñe Muguruza and Roger Federer, star players like Serena and Venus Williams, Rafael Nadal, Caroline Wozniacki, Novak Djokovic and Simona Halep are all expected to compete in the tournament.

Serena recently pulled out of the French Open ahead of a highly-anticipated fourth-round match against Maria Sharapova due to a chest injury. However, as a seven-time Wimbledon champion, she is still considered a favorite to take home the coveted Wimbledon trophy.

The official draw and seeding for Wimbledon 2018 will be determined on June 29.

Prize money

The All England Club will award a total of £34 million (about $ 45.1 million) in prize money to competitors at Wimbledon 2018, with the men’s and women’s singles champions each receiving £2.25 million ( about $ 2.3 million). This is a 7.6 percent increase on the amount of prize money awarded at last year’s Wimbledon Championships.

The club has also introduced a new “50:50” rule in an attempt to prevent injury withdrawals in the first round of the men’s and women’s singles events. Players can now claim half of their first-round prize money if they withdraw on site by the Thursday before the start of the main draw, with the remaining half going to their replacement. However, if a player competes in the first round and “retires or performs below professional standards,” they may be subject to a fine equal to the sum they received as prize money.

See a full breakdown of the Wimbledon 2018 prize money at Wimbledon.com.

Tickets

You can purchase tickets for Wimbledon 2018 through sites like StubHub and Ticketmaster—where several hundred Centre Court and No.3 Court tickets will be sold online the day before play. A limited number of tickets will also be available on the day of play to those who line up in the queue at the All England Club.

For those who can’t make it out to the grounds this year, Wimbledon 2018 will be available to stream on WatchESPN, Hulu Live, SlingTV, and DirecTV Now as well as the BBC Sport website and app.

2018 WSL Big Wave Awards Celebrate World Record for Biggest Wave Ever Surfed

WSL PRESS RELEASE

SANTA MONICA, Calif./USA (Saturday, April 28, 2018) –  The world’s best big wave surfers gathered in Santa Monica tonight for the 2018 World Surf League (WSL) Big Wave Awards. The show at the Red Bull Headquarters awarded the best rides of the past year, including a new World Record from Brazil’s Rodrigo Koxa.
Rodrigo Koxa is now the official World Record holder for the biggest wave ever surfed in history after being awarded the Quiksilver XXL Biggest Wave award tonight. The judging panel for the Big Wave Awards concluded that the record-breaking wave surfed by Koxa at Nazaré, Portugal on November 8, 2017 was 80 feet (24.38 meters) overtaking Garrett McNamara’s record, whose wave was marked at 78 feet (23.77 meters) in 2011. The Quiksilver XXL Biggest Wave Award goes to the surfer who, by any means available, catches the biggest wave of the year. Not only did Koxa win this year’s honor, but he now holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest wave surfed.

“I try to surf big waves all my life and I had a huge experience in 2014 where I almost died at Nazaré,” Koxa said. “Four months later, I had bad dreams, I didn’t travel, I got scared, and my wife helped me psychologically. Now, I’m just so happy and this is the best day of my life. Thank you to WSL, it’s a dream come true.”

The Ride of the Year showcases the most remarkable big-wave imagery of surfers racing down giant waves, and Ian Walsh’s incredible barrel ride at the 2018 Pe’ahi Challenge earned him this year’s award. Walsh also earned the Tube of the Year Award for the same wave.

“For this wave, I feel like in a lot of ways more than catching this wave, this wave caught me,” Walsh said. “It’s a great snapshot of the comradery of our sport and I feel like we all rode this wave together as a unit. Congratulations to all the other outstanding nominees who are helping progress this sport, and the water safety that’s progressed with us to allow us to do that. I thank all the surfers before us, all the surfers right now, and all the kids that will surely take this sport to unprecedented heights. Let’s all do our part to keep the oceans clean and the beaches better than we found them.”

Paige Alms earned the Hydro Flask Women’s Best Performance of the Year Award for the third time in her career. In addition to celebrating the back-to-back win, Alms was also honored for defending her Big Wave Tour Crown after winning the Pe’ahi Challenge again this season. The first women’s WSL Big Wave competition was held in 2017, and Alms has dominated the big wave surfing scene since. Next season, Alms will battle to defend her Big Wave Title for an unprecedented third-straight win as the tour sees competitions at Pe’ahi in Hawaii and Mavericks in California.

“I just want to say thank you to all the nominees, this is a really fun platform to show our sport,” said Alms. “Congratulations to all the female nominees tonight, I feel like you all push me to be a better surfer and a better person. I really like being able to call all of you my friends. You’re all so inspiring. I’d also like to thank all the photographers and videographers who are putting this spotlight on us out of the pure joy they have for the sport.”

Up-and-comer Lucas “Chumbo” Chianca earned the Men’s Best Overall Performance Award after showcasing incredible surfing this season, including his win at the Nazaré Challenge earlier this year. The 22-year-old will undoubtedly be one to watch in the upcoming season as he joins the Big Wave Tour full-time.

2016 Paddle Award winner Aaron Gold dominated the Paddle category again this year for his wave at Pe’ahi on January 14, 2018. Gold still holds the record for the biggest paddle-in wave ever surfed at 63 feet (19.2 meters) from 2016. This year’s award-winning wave was measured at 55 feet (16.76 meters).

Andrew Cotton, the standout big wave surfer representing the United Kingdom, took home one of the night’s most anticipated awards, the Wipeout of the Year Award. Unfortunately, Cotton’s gut-wrenching fall at Nazaré led to a broken l2 vertebrae and sidelined the big wave charger for six months. Cotton has been recovering since the accident and is working to return to the water to earn the Ride of the Year and Biggest Wave awards next season.

“I’d like to thank the Nazaré crew, the Mayor, and the community there,” said Cotton. “They’ve become like a family to me. Can’t thank my own family enough for putting up with all the last minute travels and schedule they deal with, it’s incredible. Since that day of the injury, I’ve progressed more each day and now I’m just looking to get back out there on the waves I love to surf. This is the dream of any big wave surfer is to be in the XXL Awards and to get on tour, but for me, it’s always been about Biggest Wave or Ride of the Year. It’s amazing to be up there in front of your heroes after being out for over six months and my goal is to be back out there in the summer or by October to really start charging again.”

Here are the 2 biggest ‘hidden’ expenses when selling a home

When you decide to put your home up for sale, it’s easy to envision a smooth process where the new buyer immediately falls in love with the place and you simply wait on the closing date — and big pay day. But a new analysis sheds light on some unexpected costs associated with a home sale.

Homes listing site Zillow teamed with Thumbtack to look at the “hidden” or “surprise” costs connected to selling a home and found that the average tally is $ 18,342.

Selling a home? Here are the 2 biggest surprise expenses

When the companies calculated the costs of several surprise expenses most commonly incurred by people looking to ditch their homes they found that the vast majority of them (61%) are first-time sellers. The data also showed that home sellers spent more time prepping their homes than it will spend on the market.

“Even in the hottest housing markets in the country, selling a home takes time and costs money,” Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow’s chief marketing officer, said in a news release. “From decluttering and staging to pre-inspections, agents and homeowners often spend months behind the scenes prepping a home – well before it’s listed on the market.”

If you’ve ever been involved in a home sale before, you know that there are myriad costs associated with it — such as title insurance fees and points that go to the loan companies — but Zillow and Thumbtack didn’t count either of those in their analysis. So what are the two biggies?

These 2 expenses cost more than you think

Closing costs: Although they vary depending on the market, a median-valued home in the United States averaged $ 13,357 in closing costs, the report says. These costs are typically driven by real estate transfer tax rates, values and commissions, which are customarily shared by the buyer’s and seller’s  agents.

Prep work: Bringing your residence up to snuff can cost a pretty penny as well. The analysis indicated that sellers spend an average of $ 4,985 to hire professional help. The basic projects include painting, staging, house and carpet cleaning, lawn care and gardening, and area moving costs. Depending on your locale, the pay for many of these jobs varies widely as well.

Wacksman with Zillow says that home sellers would do themselves a favor by researching how much they need to spend to get their residences in decent shape. The homework you do beforehand has a direct bearing on the home’s sale price.

“If you’re planning to sell this year, try to take some time to research what costs you may be responsible for and how they could affect your profit or even budget for your next house,” he’s quoted as saying.

Money expert Clark Howard has some sage advice for homeowners looking to put their houses up for sale.

“Selling your home yourself is more than just getting a ‘HOME FOR SALE’ sign in the yard,” he writes. “You need to have a sales plan. And be smart about it: Even if you’re trying to cut the commission out, always put ‘Agents Protected’ on your sign.”

Surprise: This Could Soon Become the Biggest Clothing Retailer in the World

What’s your go-to destination for shopping for clothes online? Well, if Amazon is in your regular rotation, you’re onto something. Shoppers spent a collective $ 5.5 billion on clothes on the retail site last year. While you might associate the mega retailer with tech, books, toiletries, and everyday necessities, WWD reports that Amazon’s apparel section is growing by leaps and bounds.

WWD tapped a research company called One Click Retail to analyze Amazon’s sales, and it came up with a fascinating prediction. WWD explains, “If [Amazon] continues to grow at its current rate, One Click said it’s ‘likely to become the largest clothing seller in the U.S. by the end of 2018.’ That title is held by Macy’s Inc.” Plus, WWD explains that T-shirts, jeans, and underwear were the most popular categories. We’re only one month into the year, so only time will tell if that forecast will hold true. In the meantime, will you be buying your new spring clothes from Amazon?

T-Mobile’s customer service is its biggest success story

T-Mobile customer service

Since John Legere took control of T-Mobile in 2012, the carrier has orchestrated a remarkable turn-around. Through launching the Un-Carrier initiative, T-Mobile turned its scrappy underdog status into a marketing plug, and by adding the iPhone to its lineup and investing heavily in network infrastructure, the company’s product is now on par with AT&T and Verizon.

But the most under-appreciated aspect of the turn-around is T-Mobile’s customer service. Things still aren’t perfect by any means, but T-Mobile’s focus on customer care has had a measurable impact, resulting today in the highest-ever score on JD Power’s wireless customer service survey.

This DJ Brilliantly Mashed Up 2017’s Biggest Hit Songs

For a decade now, DJ Earworm has been releasing a mash-up of 25 of the year’s top Billboard songs. The annual “United State of Pop” release is a mirror on our collective musical past, a quick SparkNotes of 12 months in chart hits and radio ubiquity.

This year it’s a diverse mix, starting off with the warm chords of Sam Hunt’s country hit “Body Like a Back Road” before diving into Ed Sheeran’s blockbuster “Shape of You” marimba and Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s inescapable “Despacito” riff. Right off the bat, we’ve already traversed three different regional genres and musical styles. That variety is a theme throughout the mashup: somehow, Earworm charts a path between the modern funk of Bruno Mars, the emo hip-hop of Lil Uzi Vert and the EDM-lite of The Chainsmokers and Coldplay. Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons and Post Malone tie as the most-sampled artists, each with two songs making it into the four-minute mix.

Give it a listen at the link, and consider adding it to your New Year’s Eve party playlist. In fact, you could just play this on repeat all night and know you’d hit all the right notes for the year.

Sansa Stark Just Answered One of Your Biggest Game of Thrones Questions

Although many Game of Thrones fans were more than happy to see Littlefinger meet his end in the season eight finale, it seems that Sansa Stark may struggle to come to terms with the loss of her longtime guardian.

In an interview with Variety that was published on Wednesday, Sophie Turner — who plays the eldest Stark daughter — shed some light on the lingering question of how her character will manage without Littlefinger at her side.

“It’s going to be tricky for her, because at the end of last season, she felt that she had everything set up. She had her family back together. They were in control of the North again,” the X-Men: Dark Phoenix star explained. “This season, there’s a new threat, and all of a sudden she finds herself somewhat back in the deep end. And without Littlefinger, it’s a test for her of whether she can get through it. It’s a big challenge for her, without this master manipulator having her back. This season is more a passionate fight for her than a political, manipulative kind of fight.”

However, when pressed to reveal if that passion would be directed at combatting the Night King and his army of wights, Turner was a bit less forthcoming. “Well, I don’t know,” she said. “We’ll have to see.”

EMPLOYMENT SEARCH UPDATE:

After Aaron Hernandez, CTE Has Become the NFL’s Biggest Problem

On Thursday, Dr. Ann McKee, the Boston University neuropathologist who has diagnosed chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in dozens of deceased NFL players, gave a slide presentation that left physicians in the audience gasping.

McKee showed that Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots tight end, who was convicted of murder in 2015 and committed suicide in prison in April of this year, had levels of CTE — a degenerative brain disease associated with repeated impacts to the head — never seen in someone younger than 46 years old.

Hernandez was 27 when he died. Images of his brain left no doubt that he had a significant buildup of tau proteins (named after the Greek letter) that destroy brain tissue in the frontal lobe — the area of the brain that moderates behavior, judgment and decision making — and the hippocampus, which controls memory.

The NFL, the unquestioned king of American sports about a decade ago, is facing all sorts of problems this season. Ratings are down 5.5% through the first nine weeks of 2017, according to Nielsen.

President Trump has regularly chided the league for refusing to punish athletes who, in an effort to raise awareness of social injustices, choose not to stand during the national anthem. Some fans are boycotting the league because of the anthem controversy. Papa John’s, the pizza chain, is blaming the NFL’s failure to quell the anthem issue for lagging sales of its pies. Colin Kaepernick has meanwhile filed a collusion grievance against the league; Kaepernick, the ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started the protest movement last year, remains unemployed while teams sign quarterbacks with far inferior performance metrics.

Then there’s the dizzying Ezekiel Elliott case, which has wormed its way through the court system, stealing even more attention from the games on the field. In August, the NFL suspended Elliott for six games due to an alleged domestic violence incident. Elliott has appealed the decision in court and has been able to stay on the field during the litigation; on Thursday, however, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit terminated a temporary stay on the suspension.

Elliott will now sit out at least the next four games: he’ll return to court on Dec. 1. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, aggrieved by Goodell’s punishment of his star running back, has reportedly threatened to sue the NFL over Goodell’s contract. He’s claiming that members of the NFL’s compensation committee misled owners about the number of votes needed to approve an extension for Goodell. (Jones was once one of Goodell’s biggest supporters. But Goodell wasn’t benching a marquee Cowboy in those days.)

As if the off-field activity wasn’t painful enough for the NFL, the on-field product hasn’t been all that compelling. Injuries have wiped out the seasons of a bevy of superstars, like New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, and Deshaun Watson, the Houston rookie quarterback who was tearing up the league before he tore a knee ligament in practice on Nov. 2. Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone in October; he could return this season.

To be sure, some of these woes and squabbles largely serve as sideshows. But the Hernandez case can do much more damage to the NFL long-term. Football is now a public health issue; safety remains an existential threat to the game. Hernandez wasn’t some grizzled veteran offensive lineman who pounded heads on every play from scrimmage. He spent only three years in the NFL.

In her presentation, McKee offered one crucial caveat. She said she couldn’t “connect the dots” between Hernandez’s severe diagnosis and his violent behavior. She said Hernandez also had a genetic marker associated with brain diseases. Still, the results raised alarms. “We can’t take the pathology and explain the behavior,” McKee said. “But we can say collectively, in our collective experience, that individuals with CTE, and CTE of this severity, have difficulty with impulse control, decision-making, inhibition of impulses for aggression, emotional volatility, rage behaviors.”

The question on the minds of so many parents across the country — would you let your son play football? — just got much more difficult to answer. Or maybe not. Maybe now it’s a harder no.

‘This Racist 94-Year-Old Grandpa.’ The 4 Biggest Disses in Eminem’s Trump Rap

Eminem unleashed a freestyle rap in which he attacks President Donald Trump’s leadership and calls the commander-in-chief a “racist 94-year-old grandpa.”

The rapper, who was widely popular for his controversial rhymes in the early 2000s, lashed out at Trump in a roughly four-minute pre-recorded rap clip revealed during Tuesday night’s BET Hip Hop Awards.

In the expletive-laced freestyle, which has no music track, Eminem takes aim at Trump for many issues, including how the President is handling nuclear tensions with North Korea and disaster aid for the storm-battered Puerto Rico. Eminem, who has previously been vocal about disliking Trump, also defends athletes who have been protesting the President and disavows his fans who support Trump.

Here are the most powerful four lines from Eminem’s freestyle:

“What we got in office now is a kamikaze”

Eminem accused Trump of cowardice, saying the President would start a nuclear war and then fly around in a plane to avoid any personal danger. “What we got in office now is a kamikaze that’ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust and while the drama pops, and he waits for s–t to quiet down, he’ll just gas his plane up and fly around ‘til the bombing stops,” Eminem said. The line is likely in reference to mounting tensions, and a recent exchange of insults, between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored”

Eminem slammed Trump for tweeting about his anger over NFL players kneeling during the national anthem while there are more pressing national matters to tackle. “But this is his form of distraction, plus he gets an enormous reaction when he attacks the NFL, so we focus on that instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada. All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers,” the rapper said.

“This is for Colin”

In the clip, Eminem raises his closed fist and states his support for former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who remains unemployed after starting the NFL kneeling movement. Eminem says: “This is for Colin. Ball up a fist and keep that s–t balled like Donald the b–ch.”

“The rest of America, stand up.”

Eminem ends his freestyle by cursing and sticking up his middle finger to his fans who support Trump. “Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line. You’re either for or against, and if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for it for you with this. F— you,” Eminem says. “The rest of America, stand up. We love our military and we love our country, but we f—— hate Trump.”
