In 1984 Bernie Goetz shot four black teenagers in the subway because, he concluded, they would rob him or worse. He left one man a paraplegic with permanent brain damage. The so-called “Subway Vigilante” eventually turned himself into police but not before receiving nation-wide support from segments of the public, including media outlets, who hailed him as a hero
Reported injuries have decreased in the meat and poultry industry, but plant workers still face grave dangers on the job — and there’s reason to believe the safety hazards are worse than they seem, according to the Government Accountability Office. Many workers are unlikely to speak out about health and safety risks for fear of losing their jobs, the office said in a report issued Wednesday.
As the dust settles around Super Bowl 50, the conversation around the contest itself has died down, while the dialogue surrounding Cam Newton’s abrupt departure from his postgame presser has, somehow, lived on. In the past few days, some have claimed that the incident typifies Newton’s supposed immaturity . Others have declared that it was a natural response from a guy whose style of play is wholly predicated on his emotions

Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime performance of her newly released single “Formation” was amazing — but beyond the singing, it was the style she and her dancers rocked that really caught our attention. One look at the army of black women rocking leather outfits, afros and black berets and we were instantly reminded of the revolutionary members of the Black Panther Party . At one point, Beyoncé and her dancers even raised black power fists in the air marking an important public declaration of black pride

Lady Gaga honored America singing the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 on Sunday and it’s safe to say she totally crushed it. No, really, she totally nailed it and pretty much everyone thought so: Love you so much, @ladygaga .

Here’s another reason to go gaga for the Super Bowl this Sunday: Lady Gaga is set to sing the national anthem before the game on Feb. 7. The NFL announced Tuesday that the “Pokerface” singer will perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, where the Carolina Panthers will take on the Denver Broncos . That’s quite an act to follow for the half-time show performers , Beyonce and Coldplay. It’s only fitting that a Super Bowl 50 performance is the next stop for Gaga in her 2016 takeover. Earlier Tuesday, the news broke that she will perform an “experimental tribute” to the late singer and cultural icon David Bowie at the Grammys on Feb. 15, and she’s already nominated for Best Song Written for Visual Media for “Til It Happens To You.” Lady Gaga also scored an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song for the track, which she co-wrote with Diane Warren for “The Hunting Ground.” And in January, she nabbed a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV or Mini Series for her role as The Countess on “American Horror Story: Hotel.” It’s Gaga’s world, and we’re all just living in it.

When it comes to snowboarding destinations, New York City isn’t at the top of the list. In fact, it generally doesn’t make the list at all.

Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Mike Munchak has absolutely no chill. Towards the end of the first quarter of the Steelers’ Wild Card matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night, Munchak yanked a handful of Bengals safety Reggie Nelson’s dreadlocks. Nelson barrelled into the Steelers’ sidelines after pushing running back Jordan Todman out-of-bounds. Munchak may have felt like Nelson unnecessarily shoved his running back into the sideline — Todman was nearly out-out-bounds when Nelson hit him, and the extra push sent Todman crashing into the bench. Todman should have been the star of the play for his darting run, but one of his coaches overreacted to a bit of chippiness on Nelson’s part.

“Even creatures you might regard as though they were superfluous were integral to the creation of the world.” Midrash Rabbah on Exodus 7 I won’t go so far as to call them old friends – tight bunch as they are, the gang of wild turkeys that occasionally wander up into the streets of my Brookline neighborhood don’t seem much interested in fellowship beyond their own kind. But at least they don’t startle me quite as much as the first time we crossed paths. That first time, they made the impression of ‘Arov – the fourth plague of Egypt, about which we read this week – wild beasts stirred into the mix of human life where one least expects them.

The Great Recession delivered a body blow to our country’s financial equilibrium, and only after years of painfully slow recovery have housing prices begun to stabilize and the unemployment rate steadily fallen. But while the economic crisis has abated, it remains a devastating morass for many, especially young adults, ethnic and racial minorities, and lower income families.
Terry Bradshaw is sick of football players like Dallas Cowboys’ Greg Hardy getting passes on domestic violence — and he’s even more upset that the NFL continues to give them. A fired-up Bradshaw didn’t mince words as he ripped into Hardy during the “Fox NFL Sunday” pre-game show. “Anybody, in my opinion, who lays a hand on a woman, I don’t care who you are, my friend: You never come back in this league,” Bradshaw said. “I really, really seriously hope, eventually, we never have a place in the NFL for people who … strike a woman,” Bradshaw said as his co-hosts sat in silence. Terry Bradshaw gives his heartfelt viewpoint on Greg Hardy's domestic abuse case. https://t.co/LfMelAXzmj — FOX Sports: NFL (@NFLonFOX) October 11, 2015 But Hardy, who was signed to the Cowboys in March, wasn’t the only target of Bradshaw’s criticism.
When convicted domestic abuser Greg Hardy returns to the NFL on Sunday, his history of violence against women will follow him to the team parking lot, through AT&T Stadium, into the locker room and out onto the field. But should he ever harm a woman again, that same history will push him off the field and out of the league for life. In the 13 months since TMZ published video of Ray Rice knocking out Janay Palmer in a casino elevator , both the NFL and the Canadian Football League have developed new domestic violence policies in close association with domestic violence experts that take a “help me help you” approach to aggressors and victims alike. Buried deep within both of those new domestic violence policies is another type of possible punishment, perhaps the ultimate punishment a league can hand down to any man who makes his living playing football: a lifetime ban. In the NFL’s case, it’s two strikes and you’re out.
