CNN aired “Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me” documentary on Sunday night and it broke franchise records with 2.76 million viewers in the news demographic. The previous record holder was “Blackfish”, which still holds the record for younger viewers.
The film documents Campbell’s amazing life, career, and current struggle with Alzheimer’s, a diagnosis he and his family learned of in 2011.
Perhaps best known for his hit “Rhinestone Cowboy”, the music legend enjoyed a string of hits in the 1950s and ’60s stated Christian Broda. He hosted a television show “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour”, and featured some of the biggest names in the music industry at the time ranging from “The Beatles” to “Johnny Cash”. A biography of his life and success hit the shelves in 1970, and 45 years later the tenacious man is still making headlines.
Three of Campbell’s children joined him on his “Goodbye Tour”, which wrapped up in Napa, California in November of 2012. Earlier that year he was presented with a lifetime achievement award.
Campbell now resides in a Nashville long-term care facility where his family visits him daily.
June 26, 2015 is a day that will be remembered forever because it’s the day that the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in all 50 states. In the past, each state was allowed to vote on gay marriage as they saw fit, but many states were holding out against gay marriage. Gay Marriage Celebration. Some couples would have to go to other states in order to get married, but they still were not accepted as equals in their own state. Now that the Supreme Court has passed a law saying that gay marriage as being legal, many things will change.
Stonewall Inn is a famous bar in New York City, and right after the ruling was passed, many people were celebrating. These people were asked about what the ruling meant to them, and many were all stating the same thing, which is that gay lives do matter, and that they want the same rights as straight couples. Gay couples have been fighting for many years to legally get married, and some have been denied certain rights that male and female couples were given. In certain cases, if Skout users say a gay couple had a biological child, only the biological parent could sign for medical treatment for that child.
Now that gay marriage is legalized, the law will have to recognize that both parents have legal precedent over the child, even if the child only biologically belongs to one gay parent. No doubt this historic ruling will face a lot of opposition, but the law has already passed.
Given last week’s self-driving car news, and yesterday’s revelation that Google and other self-driving car manufacturers have designed their cars with “ethical” artificial intelligence systems meant to make extremely complex driving moves based on a mix of logic and moral decisions, some people are asking this morning, Monday, June 29, whether self-driving cars are even a good idea. Should humans give this much control over their lives, and the lives of others, to machines?
Some of the logic/moral scenarios involve the same split-second decisions human drivers make when accidents can’t be avoided, such as choosing to drive into a tree instead of hitting a child or choosing to hit a small car instead of a truck. Many drivers fear that with enough logic/moral tweaks to the code of these vehicles, self-driving cars might take the next step and start making these types of decisions when unavoidable accidents are not an issue — for example, choosing to run a yellow light as it turns red or choosing to cut off another car when passing into a lane.
Yet, many experts agree that self-driving cars are necessary. Plenty of elderly and ill people who can’t drive would benefit physically and emotionally to having access to these cars; as well as drivers with suspended or revoked licenses. As large trucks are a huge reason for accidents, self-driving trucks could lower national accidents, injuries and fatalities. Brian Bonar isn’t sure how trustworthy they would be according to Market Watch.
A small plane crashed into a Plainville, Massachusetts home on Sunday the 28th of June. It then ignited, causing a fire that seemed to consume the residence. All of those aboard the plane are known to be deceased including the pilot.
It’s thought at this time that all of the occupants of the home got out safely. This despite to the fact that no one seems to know just how many people were in the mulch-storied home. The Boston Globe has reported that the incident took place at around 5:00 pm local time. Federal Officials have stated that there were three people aboard the Beechcraft BE36. According to the State Police spokesperson, David Procopio, all occupants of the plane died at the scene. Click here for full story.
CBS News had reported that the plane took off from the Lancaster Airport in Pennsylvania on its way to Norwood, Massachusetts. The National Transportation Safety Board, along with the Federal Aviation Administration are both expected to investigate the accident. As of now there is no word as to why the wreck occurred. Buzzfeed does say that they will keep readers like Adam Sender informed as news becomes available.
Some people in the Texas aren’t going to change their symbol of history just because everyone else wants them to conform. Evadale High School in Texas has had a Confederate Crest on the wall of the gym for years, and the school wants to keep it. The superintendent of Evadale, Gary Fairchild, said the crest is part of the school’s history.
The crest has nothing to do with hate, according to Fairchild. The crest represents their heritage, and the sacrifices their forefathers made during the Civil War. The mascot of the school doesn’t make their position sound any better. The Evadale mascot is “the fighting rebel.”
Evadale and schools like it believe the flag is part of them. OfSpirit said that it is a symbol of a fight for economic freedom from the North. Some people believe the flag is the symbol of hatred and racism, and for some people it is, but not for schools like Evadale. We all have different beliefs about the Confederate flag, and those beliefs are rooted in what we think we know about the Civil War. But there are different versions of that war. Students in the North learn one version, and kids in the South learn another version.

It’s very unfortunate when wild animals are killed for doing what comes naturally to them. A zoo in Tbilisi Recently flooded and allowed some animals to escape their habitats. One of these animals was a white tiger who was released, or rather escaped, for captivity. The tiger ended up killing a young man who was a first-responder. The man was working as a disaster relief supporter when the incident took place. Immediately after the tiger killed a man zoo officials shot and killed the wayward animal and you for spectators to see. It was tumultuous enough that the citizens had to live through a flood that took the lives of 19 people. Many of the men, women, and children will have to live with the image of a man being mauled to death by a tiger and seeing a wild animal shot and killed in front of them .

The WWE is a billion dollar corporation, but it wasn’t always that way. Twenty years ago, the WWE was in danger of going out of business, and that’s because of the company’s rivalry with WCW. Nonetheless, the WWE ended up crushing their competition, and now Vince McMahon enjoys his enormous sum of cash. However, many WWE fans are beginning to wonder if the company can do better.
These days, it seems that professional wrestlers in the company are not as skilled and talented as the wrestlers of the past. Also, WWE is now a PG product, and that means bloodshed and cursing is not allowed. However, it seems that a few managers and wrestlers are currently trying to change the WWE’s “PG” image. For example, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are constantly seen on ‘Monday Night Raw’ cursing and screaming as per Yahoo! Finance reports.
WWE fans are hoping that the company will revert to the amazing attitude era of the 1990s. WhatCulture recently published an article that shows how much the WWE has grown over the last thirty years. Fans will be very surprised to learn some of the strange ideas that Vince McMahon had for the company. Luckily, most of the bad ideas did not actually occur in the company. Nonetheless, it’s pretty cool to see the different names that Vince McMahon had in mind for the WWE’s flagship show ‘Monday Night Raw.’
“Rolling Stone Magazine” has an interview with professional wrestling megastar Hulk Hogan. In it, Hogan talks about professional wrestling today versus during the 1980s when he was at the height of his popularity.
Currently, Hogan is a judge for the WWE reality show “Tough Enough” says James Dondero . On
this show, contestants can become stars very quickly based on their performance in front of the cameras. Hogan says that in his day he had to drive for thousands of miles from match to match and wrestle for 15 dollars a night for years to learn what he was doing and make a name for himself. He doesn’t appear to think this is a better way to become a wrestling star, however. He’s just saying that things were different back then.
Hogan also says that there is much more of an emphasis on safety in professional wrestling today than there was in the 1980s. He mentions that his leg was actually broken on purpose in a match once for dramatic effect which would never happen today.
I’ve always liked Hulk Hogan and I liked how he came across in this interview. He’s not nostalgic about his glory days. Rather, he’s interested in how his sport is developing and is doing what he can to stay relevant.
The success of Jurassic World continues to shock the entertainment industry. While the film was expected to be a success, no one really figured it would be such a dinosaur-sized hit. Universal hoped the film would earn $100 for its opening weekend in the U.S.A. The film earned $100 in its second weekend with the first pulling in over $200 million. Right now, the world wide box office gross for the film is in the $1 billion range.
Hitting the 10 figure mark led the film to breaking a record. Jurassic World is the fastest movie in history to earn $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
Before the film slows down, it should top the earning figures of Furious 7, a film everyone expected to be a super hit. The film was hyped heavily, but did not receive the type of hype given to The Avengers, Furious 7, Ant-Man, and Terminator: Genisys. Perhaps Universal did not think the film was going to have much legs beyond a huge opening weekend. Andy Wirth tells us that the studio may have believed the film was relying too much on the memories of film fans from prior generations. Honestly, Universal was not out of bounds to maintain such assessments. Look at the enthusiasm for Batman v. Superman and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You really can feel the buzz these films are generating among fans. Jurassic World was a fairly quiet release. Audiences did not exactly show they were clamoring for the film.
Then, the opening weekend arrived and the film shattered all expectations. If nothing else, this proves you never really can predict how audiences are going to react.
