The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits fell more than expected last week, in a boost to the labor market outlook and the broader economy. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits declined 20,000 to a seasonally adjusted 331,000, the Labor Department said on Thursday. The data has no bearing on January's employment report, which will be released on Friday, as it falls outside the survey period. Still, it bodes well for the jobs market.
Stephen Hawking is taking on an unlikely new role as grief counselor to the innumerable tweens devastated by Zayn Malik's departure from One Direction. During a special live event Saturday evening at the Sydney Opera House in Australia, a hologram of the famed physicist appeared onstage to answer some questions. The final pre-submitted question of the evening was a real curveball: "What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of millions of teenage girls across the world?" Via his digital voice assistant, Hawking deadpanned "Finally, a question about something important." He urged the heartbroken to seek solace in the quantum embrace of theoretical physics. He said, "Because one day there may well be proof of multiple universes. It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that somewhere outside of our own universe lies another different universe. And in that universe, Zayn is still in One Direction."
As Nepal deals with the aftermath of a devastating earthquake, people at a university in the Lehigh Valley are glad to learn that some of their students studying abroad in that country are safe. Four students from Muhlenberg University in Allentown, were 50 miles outside the epicenter of a 7.8 earthquake that rocked Kathmandu. All four are safe, they have all been contacted. According to the Director of Communications for the university, the program is scheduled to end in a couple of weeks. It's not yet known if they are going to curtail it and cut it short or continue the last couple of weeks and then come home. The students were in Nepal studying their various fields, including environmental studies, international relations and anthropology. Three of the four students were in the same place at the time of the quake, and one was in India.
When you think Benedict Cumberbatch, you think “Sherlock”. Or “pale”. But you probably don’t think “muscles”. Only that’s all about to change. According to The Sun, Ben is eating DOUBLE the amount of daily calories and has got himself a personal trainer so he can beef up for new Marvel film Dr Strange. An insider told the paper: “Dr Strange was always muscly in the cartoons so Benedict has to look the part when they start filming in the autumn.
As the Cleveland Cavaliers swept the Boston Celtics out of the playoffs on Sunday, Kevin Love was watching from the locker room. And he wasn’t very happy about it after the game. Love left Cleveland’s Game 4 victory with 5:22 to go in the first quarter with a shoulder dislocation, the product of getting tangled up with Celtics’ center/forward Kelly Olynyk as they fought for a rebound: Love immediately ran to the Cleveland locker room and did not return to the game. After the game, Love told reporters that he thought it was a bush league play and had no doubt it was done in purpose. When asked about Love’s comments, Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas said Boston can lodge similar complaints towards Cleveland. Celtics head coach Brad Stevens defended his player after the loss, and doesn’t think Olynyk meant to hurt Love on the play. The Cavaliers are moving on and the Celtics now enter their offseason, but their rivalry is alive and well once again.
A month after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told Peter King of Sports Illustrated that he thought the league’s Deflategate investigation was nearing its conclusion, the Boston Globe reports that no end is in sight. According to Jeff Rosen of the Kansas City Star, Goodell told a group of Associated Press sports editors Friday that he had nothing new to report and that attorney Ted Wells did not have a deadline to complete his investigation. The NFL hired Wells to investigate allegations the Patriots used improperly inflated footballs in the AFC Championship against the Indianapolis Colts on Jan. 18th. Tuesday will mark 100 days since the contest that sparked Deflategate. Meanwhile, the list of things that took less time than the NFL’s investigation grows ever longer.
