The Obama administration is expected to announce a plan Tuesday to expand sections of the central Pacific Ocean that are off-limits to fishing, energy exploration, and other human activities. The Washington Post , which reported the story, said the plan "could create the world's largest marine sanctuary and double the area of ocean globally that is fully protected." The Post continued: "Under the proposal, the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument would be expanded from almost 87,000 square miles, to nearly 782,000 square miles -- all of it adjacent to seven islands and atolls controlled by the United States. The designation would include waters up to 200 nautical miles offshore from the territories."
The city of Chicago released video Tuesday of police officer Jason Van Dyke firing 16 shots into the body of Laquan McDonald, fatally wounding the 17-year-old. Though McDonald quickly falls to the ground, Van Dyke continues to fire into his body as it jerks on the street. Puffs of smoke from the bullets can be seen rising from his prone body thereafter. "Jason Van Dyke will be judged in the court of law," Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said at a press conference before the video's release.
The pressure is on for Warner Bros. Studios to deliver with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in March 2016, as the DC Extended Universe appears set to cast a large shadow across Marvel Studios and its incredibly successful MCU. Even as the likes of this past summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man continue to attract flocks of comic book readers to theaters, the power behind Zack Snyder’s new film might just be enough to throw everyone’s favorite Marvel Comics characters from their seat atop the pile of superhero feature fare. Ben Affleck had plenty of good things to say about the DC Extended Universe going forward, and took special care to mention his investment in the project both professionally and creatively. The actor and director is currently signed on to star in two subsequent features after his initial appearance as Bruce Wayne, both in Justice League Part One and a Batman stand-alone motion picture. When asked for comment on what Batman v Superman represents for the studio going forward, Affleck remarked: “You’ll see next year [Warner Bros. Pictures] are going to have a great year. They are now developing…probably the single greatest, under-exploited IP asset in the entertainment business: The DC comic world. And now they have started to exploit that, and you are going to see that blossom. And, when it does, it’s going to be massive.” Obviously, there’s still the pressure of screening the film to thousands of eager viewers, a pressure that Affleck undoubtedly feels. The actor stated that if the film doesn’t play well with audiences “that will be extremely disappointing,” though he is willing to leave the film’s ultimate critical value up to “the experts to decide,” presumably referring to both critics and DC Comics readers alike.
A video released online by the Kasich campaign, attacks Trump for his comments against various minority groups, invoking the theme of needing to stand up for people before it's too late. he video features retired Col. Tom Moe, a U.S. Air Force veteran and Vietnam POW, paraphrasing the famous words of late German pastor and concentration camp survivor Martin Niemoller: "You might not care if Donald Trump says Muslims must register with their government because you're not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump says he's going to round up all the Hispanic immigrants, because you're not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump says it's OK to rough up black protesters, because you're not one. And you might not care if Donald Trump wants to suppress journalists, because you're not one."
A week after canceling a book signing because of an illness, Khloe Kardashian continues to heal from the comfort of her own home. As a result, however, she's been unable to visit husband Lamar Odom for several days. Just last week, doctors told Khloe that she had "to lay low" as she heals from her infection. The 31-year-old hasn't been seen at major public events including the 2015 American Music Awards and Sean "Diddy" Combs' birthday party where several family members attended. With Khloe on the mend, Kim Kardashian recently updated fans on Lamar's condition. While improvements have been made, there is still much healing to do in the coming months.
A grand jury has ruled that seven people, who prosecutors say were involved in the beating death of a teenager during a counseling session at an upstate New York church, should be brought up on second-degree murder charge. Prosecutors said, 19-year-old Lucas Leonard was beaten to death in October over 10 hours during a counseling session at the Word of Life Church in Chadwicks, New York. The beatings were initiated because, prosecutors say, Lucas Leonard wanted to leave the congregation. The grand jury's indictment charged the brothers' father, Bruce Leonard with 13 criminal counts including second-degree murder, kidnapping and gang assault. Charges of second-degree murder, kidnapping and gang assault were also brought against church pastor Tiffanie Irwin, Traci Irwin, David Morey, Linda Morey and Joseph Irwin, who were all congregants at the church; and Sarah Ferguson. the half-sister of Lucas.
