Less-Adopted Black Cats Have More Suitors Thanks to New Marvel Movie

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreDespite their winning personalities, black cats will allegedly languish in American animal shelters for longer periods of time than their differently-colored counterparts.That’s because western cultures often view black cats as bad luck because they were thought to be the companions of witches in the 14th century.But now thanks to Black Panther, the latest Marvel flick to hit movie theaters, black cats are being adopted by the dozens, according to one resident of Durango, Colorado. RELATED: Dying Man Pleads With Facebook to Find Home For His Dog and the Response is OverwhelmingThe social media user wrote in a blog post: “Unexpected Benefit of Black Panther: my local pet shelters went from having something like 50-60 black cats between them to having NONE, because they’ve all been adopted out and named after the characters.“’T’challa’ is the most popular, but there are a fair number of ‘Okoye’s and ‘Shuri’s as well. And one very confused Elderly Humane Society Volunteer wondering why someone would name such a sweet cat ‘Killmonger’,” they added.CHECK OUT: Woman Realizes the Old Dog She Just Adopted Was Same One She Had as a ChildIf you’re concerned about whether this is a short-lived fad that will end in the cats being returned a while time later, the writer reassures us by saying that the adoption process of the local shelters is extremely stringent.And while an ASPCA spokesperson of New York City reportedly told media sources that they have seen no particular increase in black cat adoptions, the blogger goes on to say that at least cat adoptions are up in general – even if it’s just in one Colorado town.Additionally, one movie theater in Dallas reportedly held an adoption event where anyone who adopted a black cat was given two free movie tickets to see Black Panther. According to the Dallas Observer, the shelter did not have enough cats to fulfill the demand.Tail Your Friends The News: Click To ShareAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

Cosby’s lawyer attacks 1 accuser as sex assault trial opens

first_img SHARE Published: June 6, 2017 8:55 AM EDT Cosby’s lawyer attacks 1 accuser as sex assault trial opens Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. Bill Cosby’s star on Hollywood Walk of Fame won’t be removed center_img NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) Bill Cosby’s lawyer asked jurors Monday not to view him as a fallen celebrity on trial in a sexual assault case, but as a flawed man “whose infidelities have made him vulnerable” to these types of accusations.Cosby, 79, the champion of fatherhood and family values, walked into court on the first day of the trial without his wife of more than 50 years, Camille, or any of their four daughters. He was instead joined by a TV daughter, Keshia Knight Pulliam, who was five when he made her a child star on the “The Cosby Show.”On Tuesday, Cosby arrived at the courthouse with his spokesman, Andrew Wyatt.A prosecutor in opening statements urged the jury to focus on the man, not the fictional characters he created.“Actors and actresses, celebrities as a whole … they become larger than life. We have a collective imagination of all of the characters they portray and, because of that, we think that we really know them,” Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden said. “In reality, we only have a glimpse of who they really are.”About 60 women have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them since 1965, but Cosby is charged in just one case, involving a former Temple University basketball team employee who said he drugged and molested her at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.“I have three friends for you to make you relax,” Cosby told Andrea Constand as he gave her three unmarked pills, Feden said, quoting from Cosby’s deposition.Constand, who said she thought it was an herbal product, told police she fell into a stupor, unable to rebuff him as he molested her on the couch. She is expected to testify later this week.Prosecutors on Monday opened the trial with a woman who broke down in tears as she testified that the comedian had violated her, eight years earlier, at a hotel bungalow in Los Angeles.Kelly Johnson, of Atlanta, worked for one of Cosby’s agents at the William Morris Agency. Prosecutors hope her testimony will show that Cosby had a pattern of assaulting women after befriending them.Johnson said Cosby pressured her to take a large white pill that knocked her out. When she woke up, she said, he put lotion on her hand and forced her to touch his genitals.“My dress was pulled up from the bottom, and it was pulled down from the top, and my breasts were out,” she said, crying. “And I felt naked.”Defense lawyer Brian McMonagle suggested Johnson was far from credible, arguing that she said years ago that the encounter took place in 1990, and failed to mention on Monday that Cosby had given her $400.Cosby grinned and tapped his cane at the defense table as McMonagle confronted her with the discrepancies. Johnson struggled to explain them.She first raised the accusations in 2015, when she spoke out at a news conference organized by celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred.“I felt embarrassed (at the time) because I had a secret about the biggest celebrity in the world at the time and it was just me, just my word against his, and I was very afraid,” Johnson said Monday, explaining the delay.Her mother and a lawyer involved in her related worker’s compensation case against William Morris could be the first witnesses Tuesday if the judge permits their testimony.Constand, 44, of the Toronto area, is expected to take the stand this week and tell her story in public for the first time.McMonagle also has attacked inconsistencies in her story, pointing out that she initially told police she never spoke with Cosby after the alleged assault. But phone records, he said, show the two talked 72 times that year, with 53 of those calls initiated by Constand.He told jurors their relationship was romantic. Constand’s lawyer has disputed that since Constand was dating a woman at the time.Regardless, Feden said Constand could not have consented that night given her condition.“She couldn’t say no,” Feden said. “She can’t move, she can’t talk. Completely paralyzed. Frozen. Lifeless.”Cosby, his good-guy reputation already in ruins, could get 10 years in prison if convicted of aggravated indecent assault.The AP does not typically identify people who say they are sexual assault victims unless they grant permission, which Constand and Johnson have done.

Getting on their Bikes for COPD Support Ireland

first_imgLocals are being urged to come out in force on Friday June 23 to support a 50-strong group of cycling enthusiasts who are gearing up to take off from Galway as part of a cycling challenge in aid of COPD Support Ireland. The “Get Breathless for COPD” charity cycle from Galway to Dublin, which is supported by A. Menarini and led by legendary cycling champion Seán Kelly, will see the riders get up close and personal with the people and the places of Galway city and county like never before. Legendary Cycling Champ Seán Kelly to Lead “Get Breathless for COPD” Cycle Challenge from Galway to Dublin COPD, or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, is perhaps better known as bronchitis or emphysema, and is where the airways of the lungs are narrower than normal, leading to airflow obstruction and difficulty breathing. It is the fourth most common cause of death in Ireland after heart disease, lung cancer and stroke.The cycling challenge takes place over two days, with participants getting on their bikes in Galway on Friday June 23 and travelling as far as Athlone, before hitting the road again for Dublin on Saturday June 24. The challenge aims to generate awareness of COPD, while also raising up to €20,000 in much-needed funds for vital COPD services. Members of the public can lend their support by texting “COPD” to 50300 to donate €2* [*100% of a donation goes to COPD Support Ireland across most network operators. Some operators apply VAT which means that a minimum of €1.63 will go to COPD Support Ireland. Service Provider: LIKE CHARITY. Helpline: 076 690 5278]The route itinerary sees the riders visit the following locations on Friday June 23:Galway’s Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa at 11am for the start of the cycleAthenry – 12.15pm approximatelyBallinasloe – 3pm approximatelyLeader of the PackAs leader of the cycling pack for the “Get Breathless for COPD” challenge, world-renowned cycling champion, Seán Kelly, believes the event offers a great opportunity to showcase the importance of physical activity for better health:“I’m really looking forward to getting back in the saddle again for COPD Support Ireland and to joining a really enthusiastic gang of people keen to raise awareness of COPD. I’d encourage everyone to make themselves aware of the disease and the steps that they can take to minimise their risk by not smoking, by eating a healthy diet and by exercising for 30 minutes most days.“And, of course, what better way to enjoy physical activity than to go out for a regular spin on a bicycle? It’s great for blowing out the cobwebs, for getting back in touch with nature, and for giving our lungs a good workout. Please come along and say hello if we are in your neighbourhood – we’d love to see you!”Damien Peelo, Executive Director, COPD Support Ireland, is hoping for an enthusiastic and warm welcome from Galway locals for the fearless riders:“We are delighted to be hosting our second ‘Get Breathless for COPD’ cycle challenge, thanks to our amazing participants and the support of A. Menarini. With more than 100 kilometres being cycled on each day, our riders will need all the cheers they can get to see them through to the finish line and so we are really looking forward to a lively welcome from the people of Galway.“The cycle is a great opportunity to get the word out about COPD, which is estimated to affect some 380,000 people in Ireland, yet many remain undiagnosed. Equally, it’s an all-important opportunity to raise vital funds for our services, including our ever-expanding network of local support groups, including in Galway, and the provision of exercise rehabilitation classes for people with COPD.”Knowing the “ABC” of COPDCOPD Support Ireland has compiled this simple “ABC” of COPD to help people better understand the disease:– Avoid the risks of COPD such as smoking and environmental toxins– Be aware of the symptoms of COPD that include persistent cough with phlegm, chest infections and breathlessness– Consult a GP for a simple COPD spirometry breathing test, particularly if you are over 35 years, have symptoms, are or have been a smoker, or have a family history of lung conditions.For more information on COPD Support Ireland, call the COPD National Adviceline on Freefone 1800 83 21 46 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm) or visit www.copd.ieCOPD Support Ireland can also be found on Twitter @COPDSupportIre and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/COPDSupportIrelandprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

Connacht Name Team To Face The Cheetahs

first_imgHead Coach Andy Friend has made four changes to the Connacht starting team from the side that recorded a bonus point win over Dragons two weeks ago.  With Tiernan O’Halloran and Paddy McAllister out of action until December, Connacht have had to reshuffle slightly but Darragh Leader has returned from a leg injury to take his place on the bench.  Stephen Fitzgerald comes straight into the side at fullback for the injured O’Halloran. He is part of a new look back three that sees Niyi Adeolokun and John Porch on the wings. Fitzgerald’s brother Conor is retained at out half following his impressive start to the season, and he forms a half back partnership with Kieran Marmion.  The midfield remains unchanged with Peter Robb and Kyle Godwin continuing their partnership.  Loosehead Denis Buckley comes back into the side for his first start of the season, alongside hooker Tom McCartney and Finlay Bealham at tighthead.  The second row sees Gavin Thornbury and Quinn Roux together for the fourth straight game, while the backrow also has a familiar look to it with Captain Jarrad Butler at openside, Eoghan Masterson at blindside and Paul Boyle occupying the number 8 jersey.  Connacht face a Cheetahs side that have been hugely impressive in their opening games with three bonus point wins recorded in Bloemfontein. This impressive form is something that Connacht Head Coach Andy Friend says his side will be well prepared for:  “The Cheetahs have been impressive in their opening three games and have three bonus points on the board so we will have to be at our best against them. But we have a had a really good start to the season as well, with two wins from our opening three games so fans can expect an exciting game on Saturday evening”.  Commenting on his team selection he added; “Unfortunately we have to plan without Tiernan O’Halloran and Paddy McAllister until December but I have always said that this block of thirteen games in a row was going to require real depth in our squad. We have picked a match day 23 targeting a home win.”  Connacht Matchday Squad V Toyota Cheetahs (Sat 26 OCT, 5.15PM)  (15-9): Stephen Fitzgerald, Niyi Adeolokun, Kyle Godwin, Peter Robb, John Porch, Conor Fitzgerald, Kieran Marmion (1-8): Denis Buckley, Tom McCartney, Finlay Bealham, Gavin Thornbury, Quinn Roux, Eoghan Masterson, Jarrad Butler (C), Paul Boyle. print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Replacements: Dave Heffernan, Matthew Burke, Dominic Robertson-McCoy,Ultan Dillane, Cillian Gallagher, Caolin Blade, Tom Farrell, DarraghLeader.last_img read more
