ESPN speculated that the tackle was likely staged, as the stage crasher in question appeared to be wearing an Alabama T-shirt. Wisconsin, Watt’s alma mater, will open their 2015 season with a game against Alabama at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Prank or not, we hope the poor Alabama-clad guy had an aspirin.
The largest asteroid in recent history fell on this day, June 30, over 100 years ago. Known today as the Tunguska impact, the 1908 asteroid landed in remote Siberia and accounted for no known deaths or injuries, but it was big enough that scientists today are worrying about what might be next.
To raise awareness about asteroids, how to better detect them and how to avoid possible natural disasters, dozens of notable astronauts, astronomers, agencies and other experts have teamed up for the first-ever Asteroid Day this year.
Here is some of the best reads about the events going on around the world today, the people involved, what you need to know about asteroid detection and what can be done:
• Legendary guitarist of the band Queen and celebrated astrophysicist Brian May is just one of the signers of the 100X Asteroid Day Declaration that made Asteroid Day a reality. Check out the others here.
A few of the photos where the musician is holding modified versions of the Human Rights Campaign equality symbol appear to be from a 2013 interview session with Texas Monthly, where Nelson said, “I never thought of marriage as something only for men and women.”
It started with a pony tail holder. The hashtag #UrbanOutfittersBeLike has attained viral status this week after one Twitter user posted a photo of a pricey hair accessory from the Urban Outfitters website.
Urban Outfitters is no stranger to controversy; the company apologized last September for selling a bloody-looking Kent State sweatshirt on their website. According to Time, Urban Outfitters has not commented on their recent spike in social media attention.
A growing market of content providers continues to exert its influence in the rankings; five of the site’s top picks are streaming/download offerings, while basic and pay cable make up the bulk of the list. Only a trio of broadcast network programs made the cut, and none cracked the top ten (“Parks and Recreation” landed at number 12).
Newcomers commanded almost half of the slots. “Bloodline,” “Fortitude,” “Babylon,” “Jane the Virgin” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” are included, along with “You’re The Worst,” the Duplass brothers’ “Togetherness,” “Breaking Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul,” Damon Lindelof’s “The Leftovers,” “The Nick” and “Transparent.”
There are some glaring omissions, though. Where is “Veep”? How about “The Flash” or “Empire”? And who do I grill to find out why “Bob’s Burgers” couldn’t fit somewhere into the order?
Here are Indiewire’s Top Ten (check out the complete list here). Did they get it right? Which of your favorites are missing? Tell us in the comments below:
10. “Better Call Saul” 9. “The Leftovers” 8. “Mad Men” 7. “The Americans” 6. “Justified” 5. “Orange is the New Black” 4. “Rectify” 3. “Broad City” 2. “The Knick” 1.”Transparent”
Pizza delivery is just an emoji away now that Domino’s has instated its new text ordering system.
The company announced the futuristic ordering system today on their Twitter, and it seems simple enough. All you need to do is set up an account, enable text ordering, confirm the set up and choose your favorite order.
Sunday night’s “Game of Thrones” season finale was one for the ages, and in the HBO drama’s grand tradition of killing its darlings, not everyone made it out alive. Since we know that you’re spending all morning reading the litany of recaps, reviews and thinkpieces that have emerged online, we thought we would do you a solid and round up the best of the web’s Westerosi offerings.
Take a minute to go dust off your profile though, because the ad-free social network will be hitting iPhones everywhere this month.
Ello was originally created as a cleaner, more private alternative to social media – essentially an anti-Facebook. The minimalist network debuted in March 2014, promising users they would never show advertisements and never sell their information to advertisers. The site also does not require users to list their real names.
In September, Ello became the fastest-growing social network in history within a few hours. The hype has died down since then, but the impending iOS launch promises “dozens of new features including real-time alerts and new ways to find your friends,” so there may be hope yet for the platform.
“The Ello app is the best way to be inspired and share what matters most,” the network wrote in a recent email. Will this release give Ello staying power in the realm of social media, or will we all forget about after a week or two? We can all see for ourselves June 18 when Ello hits the Apple App Store.
The latest meme to hit the internet is, of all things, coleslaw. The mix of cabbage, carrots, mayo and sour cream is a popular summer salad, but a Tumblr post gone viral has begun to separate the lovers from the haters.
A text post made June 6 by Tumblr user ammit420 has been identified as the first known mention of coleslaw on the blogging site, and is suspected to have started the internet debate.
