DC Comics Changes Mind After Public Uproar Over Statue

DC Comics Changes Mind After Public Uproar Over Statue

 

“DC Entertainment has reversed its earlier decision, and will now allow Superman’s shield to appear on a memorial statue of murdered 5-year-old Jeffrey Baldwin, the Toronto Star reports. The original story is below.

Superman’s “S” is one of the most valuable trademarks DC Comics owns, so the company certainly isn’t going to let it appear in a memorial for any old 5-year-old who was abused and starved to death by his grandparents. That’s just bad business.

Jeffrey Baldwin and his three siblings were sent to live with their grandparents in Toronto to give their “young and problematic” mom and dad a break, the Toronto Star reported. They were reportedly beaten, locked in cold rooms, and forced to drink out of a toilet. When Jeffrey died in 2002, at age 5, he weighed just 21 pounds.”

Brazilians React To World Cup 2014 Loss

Brazilian's React To World Cup 2014 Loss

 

“The Germans tore apart Brazil’s porous defense time and time again Tuesday, routing the hosts, 7-1, in the World Cup semifinals, the largest margin of defeat at this stage in tournament history.

”We wanted to make the people happy . . . unfortunately we couldn’t,” said Brazil defender David Luiz, who had scored in each of the last two matches. ”We apologize to all Brazilians.””

Dildo Fight! An Awesome Gun Safety Ad

Dildo Fight! An Awesome Gun Safety Ad

It would be mortifying if this happened to anybody! Can you imagine if these kids had found and were playing with guns. We love this ad. In the year following Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre at least 100 children were unintentionally killed by gun fire. These deaths are completely preventable. You can never be careful enough when it comes to storing your guns. Cenk Uygur (www.twitter.com/cenkuygur), Ana Kasparian (www.twitter.com/AnaKasparian), Jimmy Dore (TYTComedy, The Jimmy Dore Show), and Lissette Padilla (www.twitter.com/lizzette) discuss.

“A gun safety advocacy group is using sex toys to start a conversation around gun safety and responsibility.

An ad released Thursday titled “Playthings” shows two young boys running around, playing with large, brightly colored dildos as if they’re swords.

“If they find it, they’ll play with it,” the narrator says, “so always lock up your guns.”

The ad comes from Evolve, an organization committed to reducing gun violence while taking no political position on the issue of gun control. The group’s co-founder, Rebecca Bond, said Evolve aims to “motivate people to make behavior changes” when it comes to firearms safety and responsibility.” *

Hands-Free Sperm Extraction. Interested?

Hands-Free Sperm Extraction. Interested?

A Chinese hospital in Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province, has introduced a new machine that makes sperm donation even easier- an automatic sperm extractor. I’m all for hands-free technology, but have scientists gone a little too far with this invention?

The effortless machine features a massage pipe that can be adjusted to suit the height of the user. All the gentleman has to do is plug in the frequency, amplitude and temperature and off they go. It’s also fitted with a small screen for those feeling uninspired.” * Cenk Uygur (www.twitter.com/cenkuygur), Ana Kasparian (www.twitter.com/AnaKasparian), Jimmy Dore (TYTComedy, The Jimmy Dore Show), and Lissette Padilla (www.twitter.com/lizzette) discuss.

Good News! Sudanese Woman On Death Row Released (Update)

Good News! Sudanese Woman On Death Row Released (Update)

“A Sudanese Christian woman detained when she tried to travel to the United States after her release from death row was freed and took refuge at the US embassy, her lawyer said.

“She is in the US embassy now,” Mohanad Mustafa said of Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag, 26.

“She and her husband think this is a safe place for them,” after receiving death threats, Mustafa told AFP.

In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said Ishag and her family were “in a safe location” and Sudan’s government “has assured us of the family’s continued safety.”

Citing privacy considerations, she declined to specify further the location of Ishag, whose arrest — and potential execution — raised deep concern among human rights campaigners in the United States.” * Cenk Uygur (www.twitter.com/cenkuygur), Ana Kasparian (www.twitter.com/AnaKasparian), Jimmy Dore (TYTComedy, The Jimmy Dore Show), and Lissette Padilla (www.twitter.com/lizzette) break it down on The Young Turks.

Lying To Get Laid, Hasn’t Everyone?

Lying To Get Laid, Hasn’t Everyone?

Brazilian men are posing as foreigners to hook up with Brazilian women. Is this okay? Doesn’t everyone lie in the dating process? Have you? Tell us in the comments below. Cenk Uygur (www.twitter.com/cenkuygur), Ana Kasparian (www.twitter.com/AnaKasparian), Jimmy Dore (TYTComedy, The Jimmy Dore Show), and Lissette Padilla (www.twitter.com/lizzette) discuss and share personal stories.

“Employing a trick often used during Carnival, Brazilian men are feigning foreignness to boost their chances of hooking up with Brazilian women during the World Cup.

“People are much more likely to show an immediate, automatic interest in you, if you’re speaking in English, when you go out in Brazil,” São Paulo businessman Ed Carlos Leal, 30, tells Mashable.”

Leal is able to impersonate one of the estimated 600,000 tourists in the country for the World Cup because he speaks fluent English, having spent three years in the UK. But even those with the faintest grasp of English have been known to give it a go as a fake American or Brit.

And some actually succeed — at least during the initial encounter.*

North Korea has promised ‘merciless’ retaliation if a forthcoming Hollywood movie about killing Kim Jong-un is released, say agencies.

He did not mention the title, but a Hollywood movie called The Interview with a similar plot is due in October.

Hollywood actors James Franco and Seth Rogen star in the action-comedy film.

Rogen, who is also one of the directors of The Interview, has sinceresponded on Twitter saying: “People don’t usually wanna kill me for one of my movies until after they’ve paid 12 bucks for it.”

Franco and Rogen play a talkshow host and his producer who are invited to interview Kim Jong-un, and are subsequently recruited by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to assassinate the leader.” *

Gary Oldman Apologizes For Offensive Comments – Do You Call Bullsh*t?

Gary Oldman Apologizes For Offensive Comments – Do You Call Bullsh*t?

Gary Oldman was scheduled to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! before he became a topic of controversy this week for denouncing Hollywood hypocrisy and political correctness in an interview with Playboy. But his appearance Wednesday took on new meaning when he ended up issuing a sincere apology to anyone and everyone he offended with his words.

“I said some things that were poorly considered,” Oldman told Jimmy Kimmel. “And once I had seen it in print, I could see that it was offensive, insensitive, pernicious and ill-informed.”

“The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement calling his comments about Jewish people “prejudiced” and the actor responded with an apology to that community. But the apology he made to Kimmel’s audience was more broad.” *
