Donald Trump is being criticize for mocking a reporter with a congenital joint condition that limits movement in his arms. The Republican Presidential nominee defended his widely discredited claim that thousands of Muslims in New Jersey cheered as the World Trade Center collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001, at a rally in South Carolina on Tuesday. While he was speaking he impersonated one of the authors of a 2001 article in The Washington Post that Trump has used to support his claim. Trump said, as he appeared to imitate the reporter Serge Kovaleski ,who suffers from arthrogryposis, ”Now, the poor guy — you ought to see the guy: 'Uh, I don't know what I said. I don't remember.” Kovaleski told MSNBC on Monday while making similar comments to CNN, That he did "not recall anyone saying there were thousands, or even hundreds, of people celebrating.” A spokesman for The Times told NBC News, "We think it's outrageous that he would ridicule the appearance of one of our reporters." Kovaleski is currently an investigative reporter for The Times.
Taylor Swift is in New Zealand with some rare birds and people are angry. Following the confusion surrounding Swift's whereabouts earlier this week, Universal Music reportedly confirmed that the singer was in the country to film a music video on Bethells Beach, Auckland, home of the rare New Zealand dotterel. With around 1700 remaining in the country, the dotterel is one of New Zealand's rarest birds and is officially ranked as being nationally vulnerable, meaning conservationists are pretty darn annoyed that Taylor and her team set up camp on their nesting spot. Since the accusations, the production company working on the video, Cherokee Films, has released a statement accepting responsibility as well as a map showing their filming location, which they say are away from the dotterels' nesting spot.
State troopers who are suing North Carolina for millions of dollars in back pay say the state’s broken promises have forced them into tough spots such as working second jobs, moving in with parents and even going on food stamps. About 800 troopers have joined a class-action lawsuit arguing that the state promised a schedule of regular pay increases when they were hired, but reneged because of budget problems. Many took pay cuts when they were recruited from other agencies, expecting to catch up quickly because of raises traditionally given about once a year.
This week Sony revealed that over 30.2 million PlayStation 4 units have been sold worldwide, as of November 22nd. Sony describes this as a continuation of “the fastest and strongest growth in PlayStation hardware history. The PS4 allows users to play games either on disc or via digital download, and also includes other entertainment options for streaming music, film and TV content through apps like Netflix. The PS4 also seems to be outpacing its closest competitor, the Xbox One, by a significant margin. Microsoft elected not to disclose the number of units sold in its most recent quarterly financial report, but VentureBeat estimates that the number sits at around the 15 million mark – approximately half the number of PS4 units sold.
After shattering album records with 25, Adele is going on a well over due tour! Adele has announced her first tour since 2011, with a string of European dates in support of her record-breaking new album, "25." The album sold a record 2.4 million copies in its first four days in the U.S. One reason for the astronomical sales may be that Adele declined to make her album available through music-streaming services including Apple Music and Spotify, forcing listeners to buy it either digitally and at stores. The first single, "Hello," is a hit on both sides of the Atlantic.
