Whenever I have my children’s full attention, meaning they are only performing two simultaneous tasks on their cell phones, I attempt to offer fatherly advice on subjects ranging from drugs to fashion choices to not spending money like a Kardashian. So far they seem to be listening, although I know the day is coming when one bursts through the front door and excitedly screams, “Dad, don’t you think this tattoo will be perfect for my job interview?” Recently my eldest and I were discussing her chosen college major, physical therapy, a vocation that I wholeheartedly support for it meets the criteria I laid out during one of my advisory sessions: Do not choose a career that can be replaced by a computer. Physical therapist has only a 2.1 percent chance of becoming automated in the next decade or two, if one is to believe “The Future of Employment: How Susceptible are Jobs to Computerization,” a 2013 study authored at the University of Oxford

WASHINGTON (AP) — Years before the high-profile deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray, more than half of African-American millennials indicated they, or someone they knew, had been victimized by violence or harassment from law enforcement, a new report says. The information, from the “Black Millennials in America” report issued by the Black Youth Project at the Study of Race, Politics and Culture at the University of Chicago, reflects starkly different attitudes among black, Latino, Asian and white millennials when it comes to policing, guns and the legal system in the United States.

WASHINGTON — Republican officials here in the capital had dismissed Matt Bevin’s chances of winning the governor’s race in Kentucky. They thought he was just too weird and wild, even in a state that has become deep red in presidential elections. A Louisville businessman and tea party leader, Bevin (who was originally from New Hampshire) had had the reckless temerity to run — and lose — a race for the GOP Senate nomination last year against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the founder and leader of the modern Republican Party in the Bluegrass State.

A new British film that puts a gay twist on the science fiction genre is now available to stream online .  Directed by Mike Buonaiuto , ” Credence ” follows two gay fathers’ decision to “give up all their possessions to ensure the survival of their daughter, and the entire human race” after violent storms on Earth make life on the planet unsustainable. It stars Anthony Topham, Alex Hammond and Tia Kenny and had its world premiere at London’s Prince Charles Cinema in May.  Buonaiuto, who raised funds for the movie via an online campaign , told The Huffington Post in an email that “Credence” aims to “paint a picture of not just what sci-fi looks like when it’s a bit more progressive, but what all films can look like when they break free of LGBT stereotypes often seen in cinema.”  If Buonaiuto’s name sounds familiar, that’s because the director also helmed the viral ” Homecoming ” and ” Invisible Parents ” clips.  You can take a look at the movie’s trailer above, and check out a short, behind-the-scenes feature below.

Willie Nelson’s Crusade to Stop Big Pot

This begins to add up when you do the math. Nelson has spent the past 60 years touring the American landscape; the current version of the Honeysuckle Rose is the fifth tour bus to bear its name; each of the buses has crossed the country dozens, if not hundreds, of times; and even now, in his ninth decade, Nelson spends about 150 nights each year on the road. Just about everywhere he stops for the night, he is greeted by a welcoming party of local growers, many of whom have been visiting him on the Rose for years and are eager — one might say determined — to give him a taste of their best grow.

Miami beat Duke 30-27 Saturday night on a ridiculous game-winning kickoff return that featured eight laterals and just all around chaos on the field.  Miami appeared to have been moving backwards after the first seven laterals, but on the eighth, Miami cornerback Corn Elder caught the ball from his own nine yard line and ran 91 yards. In the stats, it was a 75-yard return, but they ended up covering much more of the field than that. During Elder’s scamper to the end zone, there was a block delivered that was originally ruled a block in the back and would have negated the touchdown.
