https://www.complex.com/sports/2019/09/bangbros-reportedly-submitted-naming-rights-bid-for-miami-heat-arena

hings are changing in Miami and apparently BangBros wants in.

American Airlines' naming rights deal over the Miami Heat arena will expire at the end of this year. Yet, the company announced on Thursday that it doesn't plan on renewing their contract with the franchise. This leaves a void that BangBros is looking to fill. According to the Miami-based internet porn company, it has placed a $10 million bid to rename the arena "The BBC (The Bang Bros Center)."

"Both the Heat and BangBros have become staples of the city, with huge fans of each. It doesn’t get more Miami than having the arena sponsored by BangBros," the statement reads.

While it is unlikely that the NBA will take this bid seriously, fans had a great time toying with the idea on social media.

https://www.nj.com/news/2019/09/gamestop-to-close-up-to-200-stores-as-sales-plummet.html

GameStop plans to close as many as 200 stores amid declining sales, the retailer announced Wednesday.

The video game, consumer electronics and gaming merchandise retailer made the announcement on a third-quarter earnings call as it revealed that hardware sales plunged 41.3% in the quarter ending Aug. 3 and overall sales fell about 14%.

CEO Jim Bell expects from 180 to 200 stores to close by the end of the year. The company hasn’t said which stores will close.

Grapevine-Texas based GameStop blamed the steep drop in hardware sales on announcements that game makers such as XBox and PlayStation would be coming out with new “next generation” consoles in 2020.

It has closed 195 stores since the second quarter of last year and laid off about 200 employees, according to CNBC.com.

GameStop, which has about 5,700 locations in 14 counties has dozens of stores in New Jersey.

GameStop didn’t immediately return a message from NJ Advance Media asking about possible closings in New Jersey.

https://www.digitaltrends.com/news/8ghan-owner-jim-watkins-congress-testimony/
8ghan owner Jim Watkins is scheduled to meet with the House Homeland Security Committee on Thursday morning, and his prepared statements reveal that 8ghan has no plans to delete hate speech from its platform.

“My company has no intention of deleting constitutionally protected hate speech,” Watkins will say in his prepared statement. “I feel the remedy for this type of speech is counter speech, and I’m certain that this is the view of the American justice system.”

Watkins and 8ghan came under fire after the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, since the El Paso shooter was active in the online image board and even posted a premature “manifesto” containing white supremacist views, racism, and hateful speech.

The House Homeland Security Committee subpoenaed Watkins on August 14 to testify before lawmakers about 8ghan’s role in mass shootings and white supremacist-inspired attacks.

In his prepared statement, Watkins condemned only certain types of hate speech.

“8ghan recognizes that small categories of unprotected speech exist outside the purview of the First Amendment. These include categories like child pornography, ‘fighting words,’ and ‘true threats.’ Where speech posted on 8ghan falls outside the recognized protection of the First Amendment, 8ghan takes action to remove it or to work with law enforcement requests to unmask the identity of a poster of unprotected speech,” he said.

The statement provides examples of illegal content that was removed from the site in 2019, including 92 discussion boards and 132,874 posts, along with 47,585 users who were banned.

The supreme court precedent on "fighting words" was set in 1942 when a nonviolent christian preacher who was anti-war called a police officer "a damned racketeer" and "a damned fascist".
Must've been a pretty thin-skinned cop to arrest someone over that kind of weak bait.
Its almost as if all that laws and bill of rights stuff that they say you have is really a big lie and when push comes to shove the people with all the guns will invent a legality for nearly any abuse that they feel entitled to try and take advantage of at gunpoint or with inferred threats of violence and other severe penalties.

Presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar knocked Julián Castro’s attack on Joe Biden during the debates tonight, comparing it to a President Donald Trump tweet.

“Blegh, I just remembered thinking, this is not cool,” Klobuchar told CNN anchors Erin Burnett and Dana Bash during post-debate analysis.

“Just because you can have policy differences and I was one of the few up there that was willing to take on Bernie and the things even though we work together all the time. I would never do it personally,” Klobuchar said.

She also noted candidates hitting each other wasn’t a norm in 2018.

“We united behind candidates and didn’t treat each other like Donald Trump. One of the things bothered me is he coarsened the rhetoric,” Klobuchar said. “We don’t just have to change policy, we have to change the tone in the politics. And when a statement like that is made, it doesn’t feel like that. It felt like a Donald Trump tweet.”

Explains all the shitposting on 4chan
Autism rates among U.S. children are rising fastest among blacks and Hispanics, researchers say.

"We found that rates among blacks and Hispanics are not only catching up to those of whites -- which have historically been higher -- but surpassing them," said study author Cynthia Nevison, a research scientist at the University of Colorado Boulder.

"These results suggest that additional factors beyond just catch-up may be involved," she added in a university news release.

Among children born between 2007 and 2013, autism rates at ages 3 to 5 rose 73 percent among Hispanics, 44 percent among blacks and 25 percent among whites, the analysis of national data revealed.

In 30 states, rates among blacks were higher than among whites by 2012. In states with high autism rates, 1 in 79 whites, 1 in 68 blacks and 1 in 83 Hispanics born in 2013 was diagnosed with autism by ages 3 to 5.

Some of the increase among minorities is due to more awareness and better detection, but it's likely that other factors are involved, according to the researchers.

"There is no doubt that autism prevalence has increased significantly over the past 10 to 20 years, and based on what we have seen from this larger, more recent dataset it will continue to increase among all race and ethnicity groups in the coming years," said study co-author Walter Zahorodny, an autism researcher and associate professor of pediatrics at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.

(The fringe website hosted manifestos tied to a recent string of mass shootings.) While panel staff are still reviewing testimony from their recent closed-door Watkins session, Thompson said he expects the panel to expand its focus to other platforms, with the goal of eventually proposing reforms. “Ultimately we’re looking at some policy recommendations,” he told Cristiano. “There’ll probably be a couple more hearings around it.

This is what I don't get. Trump is the President. Both houses of Congress were Republican until last year. The Supreme Court is conservative.

Indonesian gold miners killed in West Papua

5 September 2019

Five gold miners in West Papua's central highlands were killed by local residents on Monday.

National police spokesperson Dedi Prasetyo said 74 miners were evacuated from Yahukimo regency after being attacked.
Three miners were also injured by the residents, who were armed with machetes, bows and arrows.

Mr Prasetyo told Reuters it was unclear whether the incident was linked to growing unrest across Papua.

A spokesperson for the West Papua Liberation Army, a rebel group operating in the highlands, said the gold miners were Indonesian immigrants, killed because they "came to Papuans lands and stole the gold from indigenous Papuans lands".

>The infamous moment, like many at Donald Trump’s rallies that summer in 2016, seemed to materialize out of nowhere. Trump was telling a story about an African American supporter when suddenly he spotted Cheadle in the front row at the Redding, Calif., event, and paused to single out the black man.

>“Oh, look at my African American over here!” Trump exclaimed, pointing at Cheadle. “Look at him! Are you the greatest?”

>Cheadle laughed at Trump’s outburst then.

>Now, citing the president’s “white superiority complex,” Cheadle isn’t in the same party anymore.

You added nothing to the discussion, and you failed to understand what the posts were even about. The term "token black" is indeed appropriate for Trump's cabinet, given that blacks are massively underrepresented and in relatively minor positions. And don't come with that bullshit about choosing competence instead of skin color, when Trump's government has been filled with incompetent clowns that get fired every other week.

>Gone are the days where the CIA would directly overthrow foreign governments it didn’t like, such as Iran in 1953 or Brazil in 1964.

>Today regime change is achieved through front organizations like the National Endowment for Democracy, or NED, that influences thought and culture through covert means.

>A Saudi princess has received a 10-month suspended sentence over the beating and kidnapping of a plumber in her luxury Paris apartment.
Hassa bint Salman is the 43-year-old sister of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and daughter of King Salman.
She is accused of telling her bodyguard to beat up a plumber who allegedly took photos inside her home.
Ashraf Eid said the guard bound him and forced him to kiss the princess's feet.
On Thursday, a French court found the princess guilty of complicity to violence with a weapon and complicity to kidnap.
The princess - who was the subject of an international arrest warrant and was tried in absentia - was also ordered to pay a 10,000 euro (£8,900) fine. She has previously denied the charges against her.
Her bodyguard, Rani Saidi, received an eight-month suspended sentence and a 5,000 euro (£4,460) fine.
After the trial Princess Hassa's French lawyer, Emmanuel Moyne, said the plumber's allegations were "fanciful", and said they would launch an appeal.
What happened?
In September 2016, Mr Eid was called to the fifth floor of the luxury apartment block on Avenue Foch in the French capital to fix a damaged wash basin.
The Egyptian workman said he took photos of the bathroom which he needed for his work.
But the princess was allegedly enraged to see her reflection captured in the mirror. The indictment said she called Mr Saidi who then beat and bound Mr Eid.
The plumber said he was forced to kiss her feet and was not allowed to leave for several hours.
At one point the princess allegedly yelled: "Kill him, the dog, he doesn't deserve to live."

CDC officials advised people to stop using e-cigarettes until scientists gain better understanding of the epidemic of serious vaping-related lung disease that has sickened as many as 450 people and left at least five dead across 33 states.

The latest deaths were reported Friday by health departments in Indiana, California and Minnesota, following deaths in Illinois and Oregon. State officials say a number of cases involve marijuana products, but caution against drawing any conclusions and say there may be multiple causes.

CDC said it had confirmed 215 vaping-related lung disease cases and was investigating another 235 possibly related to vaping.

Minnesota's first vaping-related death involved a 65-year-old man with a history of lung issues, the state's health department said. Indiana and Los Angeles County also reportedly had deaths. The first fatality was reported last week in Illinois. Earlier this week in Oregon, officials said a man who bought marijuana vapor from a dispensary had died.

A major case study published Friday found that 84 percent of 41 Illinois and Wisconsin patients reported using THC — the psychoactive ingredient of marijuana. But more than half of them also used nicotine.

At least six groups of potentially toxic compounds are found in e-cigarette liquids, including nicotine, carbonyls, volatile organic substances like benzenes, trace metals, poisonous flavoring compounds and microorganisms, Harvard public health expert David Christiani said in separate NEJM editorial.

No conclusions can be drawn just yet, Christiani wrote, but "physicians should discourage their patients from vaping."

Over 70 years of tracking the habits and health of British people in the medical profession, the survey came up with all sorts of interesting statistics, one of those was that people in the survey who smoked, but quit smoking at age 35 or younger had no greater likelihood of respiratory illness during their lifetimes than people who never smoked.
The peer reviewed scientific literature disagrees with the made-up assumption you just pulled out of your ass and has numbers to back it up, what did you base your assumption on? Decades of exposure to lies and half truths in the yellow press?

POLITICO: Trump responds to one vaping crisis by attacking another.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/fbi-uses-red-flag-law-to-seize-weapons-from-former-marine-who-threatened-to-slaughter-antifa

The FBI exercised Oregon's new "red flag" law to confiscate firearms from a former Marine who allegedly said he would "slaughter" antifa protesters at a demonstration in Portland earlier this month, according to the Oregonian.

In July, Shane Kohfield threatened to kill antifa members who he feared would take up arms against right-wing activists. He made the threats on a loudspeaker while donning a "Make America Great Again" baseball cap with a knife and a copy of his concealed carry permit strapped to both shoulders.

"If antifa gets to the point where they start killing us, I’m going to kill them next," Kohfield said outside of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler's home. "I’d slaughter them, and I have a detailed plan on how I would wipe out antifa."

Why would one compare mass shootings to drug related crime?

Writing Up an arrest warrant or charging him for a crime, for making veiled or in this case blatant threats to the safety of the public; takes time. There’s a process there, and boy is it slow. Methodical but slow. If some nutcase is planning on capping civvies the next day, the sheer slog of paperwork and red tape you gotta go through to book this guy would spell doom.

It’s hard to charge someone who’s supposedly making threats if you have to prove beyond a doubt that it is one and not ironically made. But by the time you may manage to do so, he might have carried out an attack already.

Due process comes after the red flag law is enacted. The burden lies on the guy to prove to the judge he’s not another mass shooter - despite whatever posts or threats he made that triggered the red flag to start

Ironically this sort of thing is exactly what the second amendment was meant to prevent. Not that I said that - I'm a good citizen, don't send me to the gulag.
