A Sequel To A Ryan Reynolds Movie Is Trending On Netflix

  A Sequel To A Ryan Reynolds Movie Is Trending On Netflix Ryan Reynolds may be one of the surest things at the box office with Deadpool and The Hitman’s Bodyguard and in streaming with Red Notice and The Adam Project, but he hasn’t always been that as he has a few skeletons in his filmography closet. Of course, one film that he gets a lot of flack for, and even pokes fun at himself with multiple references in his Deadpool film, is his turn as Hal Jordan, AKA Green Lantern; but one film that flies under the radar is one of the biggest flops of all time, R.I.P.D.

A former soldier who helped disarm the shooter at a Colorado Springs LGBTQ nightclub told how his instinct took over. Also in the news: President Joe Biden has spared two lucky turkeys from the Thanksgiving table – Chocolate and Chip.

'Gotta get on the next patrol': Former soldier subdued shooter at Colorado Springs nightclub

A decorated former Army major says instinct took over when he helped disarm a man police say went on a murderous rampage inside an LGBTQ nightclub, killing five people and wounding 25. "I wasn't thinking," said Rich Fierro to a group of reporters Monday night. "I just ran over there, got him ... He ended up killing my daughter's boyfriend." Fierro is one of two men police are crediting with saving lives by subduing a 22-year-old gunman who opened fire Saturday night at Club Q. Fierro said that he and another young man pinned the shooter, later identified as Anderson Lee Aldrich, stripping a pistol and a rifle away from him before beginning to beat Aldrich. The other man who tackled the shooter was later identified as Thomas James. Read more

The temblor sent terrified residents fleeing into the streets, some covered in blood and debris, and caused buildings around the rural area to collapse. Read more

Jury deliberations to begin in Oath Keepers seditious conspiracy trial

A Washington, D.C., jury will begin deliberating Tuesday in the trial of five Oath Keepers accused of plotting against the government to stop the certification of the 2020 presidential election results during the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot. Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes and four other members of the right-wing militia group face the most serious charges brought so far in relation to the attack on the Capitol, chief among them a seditious conspiracy charge. The Justice Department hasn't tried a seditious conspiracy case in a decade nor won a guilty verdict since 1995, when Islamic militants who plotted to bomb New York City landmarks were prosecuted.  A guilty verdict could serve as a warning to government dissenters that violent acts against the U.S. will be punished. But an acquittal could undermine the Justice Department's narrative that the events of Jan. 6 endangered democracy — and embolden the militia movement. Read more

Major rail union rejects deal Biden brokered, threatening pre-holiday strike

A union representing rail conductors narrowly voted to reject a collective bargaining agreement orchestrated by the Biden administration, moving one step closer to a crippling freight rail strike that appeared averted two months ago. A separate union representing rail engineers voted to ratify the deal. The split among the two largest rail unions comes after three smaller unions already rejected the agreement with rail companies. Eight freight rail unions have now approved the agreement, but all 12 must sign on for ratification. A strike or lockout could paralyze the economy by halting the shipment of many foods and critical goods. Read more

What the 49ers are saying after beating the Chargers

  What the 49ers are saying after beating the Chargers The 49ers started the second half of their season strong Sunday night with a 22-16 comeback win over the Los Angeles Chargers. They are now 5-4, just one game behind the Seahawks for the NFC West lead. After allowing a quick score to open the game, the 49ers’ defense locked up Justin Herbert and the Chargers’ offense, allowing only 57 yards (and zero points) in the second half. Los Angeles entered the red zone twice in the first half after its initial strike, but walked away both times with only a field goal. The Niners, despite trailing throughout, stuck to their game plan and racked up 41 rushing attempts.

Broncos move on from former Pro Bowl RB

  Broncos move on from former Pro Bowl RB Melvin Gordon was expected to see an expanded role with the Denver Broncos when starting running back Javonte Williams went down with a knee injury earlier this season, but the veteran’s time with the team has now come to an end. © Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports Melvin Gordon III. The Broncos announced on Monday that they have waived Gordon. It is likely not a coincidence that the move was made a day after Gordon had yet another fumble. Gordon fumbled during the Broncos’ overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, though Denver recovered.
