Ukraine's president will return Monday from a short sick leave that had sparked a guessing game he was taking himself out of action in preparation to step down or for a crackdown on widespread anti-government protests. Viktor Yanukovych's office made the announcement about the president's return the same day as protesters seeking his resignation held one of their largest gatherings in recent weeks. About 20,000 people assembled at the main protest site in Kiev's central square on Sunday. Some opposition leaders were skeptical about it, however, and thought Yanukovych was disappearing from the limelight in preparation for imposing a state of emergency amid the deepest turmoil in Ukraine since the Orange Revolution in 2004-2005. The protests, which are heading into a third month, began in late November after Yanukovych backed away from a long-awaited agreement to deepen ties with the European Union. But his return to work could bring new action. More people are coming to Maidan," said demonstrator Tamara Tribko, using the abbreviated name of the square where an extensive tent camp has been established since early December. Dmytro Bulatov went missing on Jan. 22 and resurfaced a week later, heavily bruised and with part of an ear cut off.

Cheryl Boone Isaacs has been re-elected president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, for her third consecutive term. Boone Isaac’s reelection is not a surprise. In Academy etiquette, it’s bad form to challenge an incumbent. More important, in the last two years she has helped navigate the Academy through some major challenges. Among her accomplishments is Academy outreach, working to diversify the org beyond the L.A.-centric, old-boy-network demographic.

Two federal agencies said Tuesday, more than 380 people in 26 U.S. states have been diagnosed with a stomach illness tied to Mexican cilantro contaminated by human waste. The FDA said it suspects the contamination came from "contact with the parasite shed from the intestinal tract of humans" in the growing fields, contaminated water or harvesting, processing and packing activities. Previous U.S. outbreaks of the illness have been linked to imported fresh produce, including cilantro from the same region in Mexico which was the subject of a partial ban imposed by the FDA on July 27.
First there was the leaked Deadpool test footage that we had heard described in a positive light many times over the years since director Tim Miller and star Ryan Reynolds made it to prove they could. Then an HD version of said footage also “leaked” quickly thereafter and the response to it paved the way for the film to get a greenlight from studio Twentieth Century Fox and a fast-tracked production schedule to have it release in February 2016, months before the next X-Men film opens in theaters. Skip forward a year and Deadpool put on the most applause-inducing panel of San Diego Comic-Con 2015 where the first teaser trailer played in front of over 6000 fans. A hilarious trailer for a trailer later and today’s the day the world gets their first real look at official Deadpool movie footage. And it’s perfect!
