  1. Often described as "the zombie movie that never ends," The Walking Dead has has finally defied its core premise by… well, ending. The Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment comic book series, first published in 2003, has reached its conclusion, in a fashion that mirrors the ways in which main characters were regularly killed off: with no warning at all. Creator Robert Kirkman and artist Charlie Adlard concluded the industry-changing comic book series with Wednesday's The Walking Dead #193, an extra-sized edition that plays out as a sprawling epilogue to Rick Grimes' story. The series finale comes just shy of a landmark 200th issue; what's more, the ending has arrived without any advance warning, to the point that Kirkman and Skybound solicited several subsequent issues with cover art from Adlard. Those covers and solicitations were created to preserve the secret behind the series finale, according to Kirkman himself. "I hate knowing what's coming," Kirkman wrote in the concluding pages of Walking Dead #193. "As a fan, I hate it when I realize I’m in the third act of a movie and the story is winding down. I hate that I can count commercial breaks and know I’m nearing the end of a TV show. I hate that you can feel when you’re getting to the end of a book, or a graphic novel. Some of the best episodes of Game of Thrones are when they’re structured in such a way and paced to perfection so your brain can’t tell if it’s been watching for 15 minutes or 50 minutes ... and when the end comes ... you’re stunned." https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/walking-dead-ends-robert-kirkman-comic-book-ends-surprise-finale-1222097
  2. US satirical publication Mad Magazine is ceasing publication of new material after 67 years. The magazine will stop publishing new content after its next issue. Any new issues will feature previously released content with a new cover. It will also now only be available in comic stores and to subscribers. Many fans responded to the news to share their disappointment. Some described how influential the magazine had been growing up. Mad Magazine was known for its striking front covers, in which it parodies both current affairs and popular television programmes. It often featured the magazine's gap-toothed child mascot Alfred E. Newman on the cover. The magazine was founded in 1952 and began life as a comic book before changing to a magazine format in 1955. DC, which publishes the magazine, told ABC in a statement: "After issue #10 this fall there will no longer be new content - except for the end of year specials which will always be new. So starting with issue #11, the magazine will feature classic, best of and nostalgic content from the last 67 years." https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-48865342

  4. Robert Pattinson is officially the new Batman. Warner Bros. has closed a deal for the “Twilight” actor to play the Caped Crusader in “The Batman.” Matt Reeves’ upcoming superhero tentpole hits theaters on June 25, 2021. Variety first reported on May 16 that Pattinson was in negotiations for the part. The studio confirmed on Friday that Pattinson had signed a deal. Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is expected to start this summer. Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “The Batman” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017. Reeves will produce “The Batman” with his “Planet of the Apes” collaborator Dylan Clark. https://variety.com/2019/film/news/robert-pattinson-batman-1203230054/
  5. Maybe American kids will only have to live through one Christmas without Toys “R” Us. About a year after shuttering U.S. operations, the remnant of the defunct toy chain is set to return this holiday season by opening about a half dozen U.S. stores and an e-commerce site, according to people familiar with the matter. Richard Barry, a former Toys “R” Us executive who is now CEO of new entity Tru Kids Inc., has been pitching his vision to reincarnate the chain to toymakers, including at an industry conference this week, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. The stores are slated to be about 10,000-square feet, roughly a third of the size of the brand’s big-box outlets that closed last year, the people said. The locations will also have more experiences, like play areas. The startup costs could be minimized with a consignment inventory model in which toymakers ship goods but don’t get paid until consumers buy them, some of the people said. A spokeswoman for Tru Kids said the company wasn’t ready to publicly share details on its U.S. strategy. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-06-21/toys-r-us-back-from-the-dead-will-open-u-s-stores-in-2019
  6. What is happening 4 people shot during Raptors rally at Nathan Phillips Square Four people were shot at a rally celebrating the Toronto Raptors' first NBA championship on Monday afternoon, according to police, amid a celebration that saw thousands of fans crowd into the city's downtown core. Police took three people into custody and recovered two firearms, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders told reporters. Two people were arrested in connection with one shooting, Saunders said, while the third was arrested in connection with the other. He did not go into further details. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/raptors-rally-shooting-1.5178886 4 injured in 2 stabbings reported at Eaton Centre Four people have been injured, including at least one seriously, after a pair of stabbings at the Eaton Centre. Toronto police were called to the shopping centre just after 2 p.m. on Monday afternoon. The first stabbing happened at the entrance to a store during a fight with a group of men. Three men were reportedly stabbed, but their injuries were considered non-life threatening. The other incident occurred near Bay Street and one man was rushed to a trauma centre with life-threatening injuries. It’s not clear yet whether the two stabbings were connected or whether they were connected to the Raptors celebrations. https://toronto.citynews.ca/2019/06/17/2-stabbings-reported-at-eaton-centre/ Toronto police investigate bomb threats against post-secondary schools Toronto police said they are responding to several bomb threats to post-secondary institutions around the city on Tuesday. Police said they were first alerted to the situation at around 8:54 a.m. “We’re investigating and working with schools to evacuate where necessary,” police said in a tweet. Ryerson University said the Chang School was closed for a police investigation but has since reopened. OCAD University said all of its buildings on campus are being evacuated and will be closed until further notice. George Brown and Humber College also received threats, police said. https://toronto.citynews.ca/2019/06/18/toronto-bomb-threat-investigation/
  7. Police are searching for a gunman who opened fire at a graduation party attended by about 75 people in Philadelphia. One person was killed and five others were injured in Sunday evening's shooting at a barbecue gathering in Paschall Playground Park, according to Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross. Reports initially indicated seven injuries. Ross said that several of the victims were teens between the ages of 15 and 17 who suffered gunshot wounds to their legs. An adult victim died of their injuries. Police Capt. Jason Smith said Monday that officials are looking into the possibility of the shooting being connected with another incident that took place near the same park about a week prior. Three men were observed near the parking lot of the park, and one man described as wearing a hoodie opened fire. Hours after the shooting, the crime scene looked like a trashed party with garbage strewn about, chairs overturned and several party items left behind in a field. There was no crime scene tape and it looked as though the party-goers had just gotten up and left instead of fleeing from gunfire. Ross said the motive for the shooting is not yet known. https://start.att.net/news/read/article/cnn-one_person_was_killed_and_7_other_people_were_shot-cnn2/category/news
  8. from the Daily News What are your thoughts on this? This is incredibly problematic to me, especially as someone who struggles with mental health problems. I feel terrible she was abused so horribly, however I just cannot justify this in place of rehabilitation. Especially for a 17 year old... Legal euthanasia is usually granted for elderly or terminally ill patients. Suicide is already such an epidemic in teens and young adults. I think this sends a TERRIBLE message to those struggling with mental health issues.
  9. Theres no specific article I can link but I think this was the tweet that started the discussion Also if you look at the Twitter feed about it you can see a whole bunch of different opinions I am having issues with people saying they support the LGBT community but seem to have issues with the due to what is considered a sin in Islam I would appreciate some more context and insight and opinions on this because I am confused as hell
  10. He’s going from sex symbol to bat symbol. Sources tell Variety that Robert Pattinson is in negotiations to play “The Batman” in Matt Reeves’ forthcoming superhero film, which hits theaters June 25, 2021. While sources say it’s not yet a done deal, Pattinson is the top choice and it’s expected to close shortly. Warner Bros. had no comment. Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is expected to start this summer. Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “Batman” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017 and has been developing the elusive project ever since. Affleck and Warner Bros. began discussing the actor-director leaving the Caped Crusader behind following “Justice League,” allowing Reeves to pick his own Bruce Wayne. https://variety.com/2019/film/news/robert-pattinson-batman-matt-reeves-bruce-wayne-dc-comics-1203125473/
  11. More than a dozen states have moved to declare pornography a public health crisis, raising concerns among some experts who say the label goes too far and carries its own risks. The Arizona Senate approved a resolution this week calling for a systemic effort to prevent exposure to porn that's increasingly accessible to younger kids online. At least one legislative chamber has adopted a similar resolution in 15 other states. "It is an epidemic in our society, and this makes a statement that we have a problem," said Arizona Sen. Sylvia Allen, a Republican who blamed pornography for contributing to violence against women, sexual activity among teens and unintended pregnancies. Linking those social issues to pornography is "compete fear-mongering," said Mark Kernes, a senior editor at the trade publication Adult Video News media network. Pornography is harmless entertainment meant for adults, he said. "We're not really a public-health anything," Kernes said. The Arizona resolution that passed Monday doesn't ban pornography or create any other legal changes, but it could signal future action. Similar declarations have been passed in GOP-controlled states ranging from Tennessee to Montana and been adopted in the Republican Party's national platform. Many of the resolutions are based on a model written by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, an anti-porn group that cites research linking it to a range of problems and argues that it's become too ubiquitous for individuals to combat alone. But others say the public-crisis label is a misguided approach. Research has raised questions about the effect of explicit material on young kids, but links to other often-cited issues like human trafficking are tenuous at best, said Emily Rothman, a community health sciences professor at Boston University. The resolutions risk creating a stigma for marginalized groups like LGBTQ people and miss a key piece of the puzzle by leaving out calls for more robust sex education for teenagers, she said. And porn isn't like a deadly virus, she said. "If you stub your toe, that might be something you can't solve yourself, but that doesn't make it a public health issue," Rothman said. Several Arizona Democrats said the state has more important health threats to confront, such as measles, opioids, homelessness and suicide. Plus, pornography can be part of a healthy sex life for adults, said Albuquerque-based sex therapist David Ley, who sees the resolutions as a backlash against changing attitudes about sexuality. "It's just virtue signaling, there's literally no effect," he said. But the legislation could pave the way for future steps, like keeping publicly funded internet at places like schools and libraries from being used to access porn, said Haley Halverson with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, which is working on new model legislation for states taking those next steps. "We think these resolutions are really powerful, although they're non-binding, because they raise awareness and educate the public, and hopefully can lay the groundwork to make more resources available to those people who potentially struggle with pornography," she said. Any future steps to restrict access to pornography have to be handled carefully to avoid running afoul of the First Amendment, said David Boaz, executive vice president of the libertarian-leaning Cato Institute. "When you declare it as a public health crisis, people see that as a blank check for the government to do something about it," he said. Utah was the first state to pass an anti-porn resolution in 2016. In the years since, lawmakers have passed bills tightening up filters on wireless internet at public libraries and getting out information to parents about controls available at home, said Republican Rep. Todd Weiler, the effort's sponsor. Another new state law lets parents sue pornography makers if their kids need treatment for problems related to porn use, though it wasn't immediately clear whether anyone has made a legal challenge through it. "We're trying to shed a light on an issue that some people don't think it's OK to talk about," he said. https://start.att.net/news/read/article/the_associated_press-a_growing_number_of_states_call_porn_a_public_heal-ap/category/news+
  12. The U.S. said Thursday that it has seized a North Korean cargo ship that was used to violate international sanctions, a first-of-its kind enforcement action that comes amid a tense moment in relations between the two countries. The "Wise Honest," North Korea's second largest cargo ship, was detained in April 2018 as it traveled toward Indonesia. It's now in the process of being moved to American Samoa, Justice Department officials said. Officials made the announcement hours after North Korea fired two suspected short-range missiles toward the sea, the second weapons launch in five days and a possible signal that stalled talks over its nuclear weapons program are in trouble. The public disclosure that the vessel is now in U.S. custody may further inflame tensions, though U.S. officials said the timing of their complaint was not a response to the missile launch. Justice Department lawyers laid out the case for confiscating the ship in a complaint filed in New York, arguing that payments for maintenance and operation of the vessel were channeled through unwitting U.S. financial institutions in violation of American law. The coal trade itself is also believed to fund the isolated country's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. "This sanctions-busting ship is now out of service," Assistant Attorney General John Demers, the Justice Department's top national security official, told reporters. He later added: "The U.S. sanctions against North Korea reflect the threat these programs pose to U.S. national security." The 581-foot (177 meters) Wise Honest was used for coal transports to ports in China, Russia and other countries, according to the complaint, generating badly needed revenue to a country that is under U.N. sanctions because of its nuclear weapons program. The ship also delivered heavy machinery back to North Korea. The vessel was owned by a subsidiary of a North Korean shipping company that is controlled by the country's military and is on a Treasury Department sanctions list, officials said. North Korea sought to disguise the nationality of the ship and the origin of its cargo, according to the complaint. The ship, in what U.S. officials say was a clear act of concealment, also turned off an automatic signal system intended to alert other ships of its course and location. Indonesian authorities intercepted and seized the Wise Honest in the East China Sea a month after it was photographed at the port of Nampo, North Korea, where it took on a load of coal. The captain of the ship was charged in Indonesia with violating that country's maritime laws and convicted, the complaint says. It was not immediately clear what happened to the rest of the crew, which at least at one time totaled two dozen members. The U.S. has prosecuted people and businesses for violating sanctions but has never before seized a North Korean ship. The country will have an opportunity to contest the seizure in court. If the U.S. prevails, it will be able to sell the vessel. "When nations who have stated an intent to do harm to the United States evade international sanctions, Americans become less safe," said Geoffrey Berman, the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York. Asked whether North Korea's largest merchant ship was similarly involved in illegal coal exports, Demers said that he did not know, but added, "If it is, we'd love to get our hands on it." President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have held two summits focused on the North's nuclear program but have made no discernible progress toward a deal that would eliminate its weapons. At the White House on Thursday, Trump said the U.S. was looking "very seriously right now" at North Korea's recent military tests. "Nobody's happy about it." https://start.att.net/news/read/article/the_associated_press-us_seizes_large_north_korean_ship_used_to_transpor-ap/category/news+

  14. Shawn Mendes has officially become the 3rd artist in history to close the Pop panel in week one of tracking meaning his song is in rotation on every major pop radio station in the country. He joins Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift as the only 3 artists in history to ever manage this feat. 
  15. Jim Cummings, who has voiced both Winnie the Pooh and Tigger in Disney films, has been accused by his ex-wife of rape and physical violence. According to Page Six, Stephanie Cummings, ex-wife of Jim Cummings, alleges in court documents that Cummings has “has engaged in physical, sexual and emotional abuse including but not limited to death threats, rape, and various sexual deviant behavior forced upon me without my consent” since their divorce in 2011. She alleges that Cummings raped her in 2013 as well as demanded sex in exchange for paying child support for their daughters. On one occasion, she claims that Cummings groped her breasts in front of the children, saying he could “touch Mommy’s breasts since he had paid for them.” According to The Blast, Cummings reportedly seemed to think the incident was funny in an email response: “‘Forcing’? Please, everyone, Gracie myself and especially YOU were all giggling and laughing, it was pleasant to have one moment of light-heartedness. We both erupted into laughter.” Stephanie has taken out two restraining orders against her former husband. The first because she alleges he “forcefully put his hand on the back of my neck and kissed me while holding me in place against the wall” in front of their four-year-old. Stephanie says the abuse became so unbearable that she moved with their daughters to Utah in 2017 but allowed Cummings to visit. During that visit, she alleges she woke to find him “standing over me with his erect penis in my hand” while their daughter slept beside her, after which she obtained a second restraining order. The court documents also accuse Cummings of abusing their family dog: In response to that document, Cummings countered that he was disciplining the dog and forgot about him “for a while.” https://jezebel.com/jim-cummings-the-voice-of-winnie-the-pooh-has-been-ac-1834527104
