O’Neill noted what he called the national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions and added that he wanted to save his opponents some research time. The four other Democratic candidates for governor quickly condemned O’Neill’s post.

There are also growing calls for him to step down from the bench and drop out of the race.

Jameis Winston Denies Groping Uber Driver

(SL) – The NFL is investigating an allegation that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston groped a female Uber driver during a ride in Arizona in March 2016. The league’s investigation was first reported Friday by Buzz Feed News, which viewed a letter it said was sent from NFL special counsel for investigations Lisa Friel to the Uber driver.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed to ESPN that the “allegation was shared with the NFL and we have reached out to Uber to request any information they may have.”In the letter to the unnamed woman, Friel wrote: “The League has been informed that you may have been the victim of such a violation perpetrated by Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Jameis Winston. The league takes allegations of this nature very seriously and has opened an investigation into this matter. “
The Buccaneers released a statement that they are aware of an allegation.
“We are in the process of obtaining further information regarding today’s media report. We take these matters seriously and are fully supportive of the investigation that is being conducted by the NFL,” the team statement said.
Bucs coach Dirk Koetter told reporters Friday he was “just finding out” about the allegation.Winston was not on the field with the Buccaneers on Friday ahead of Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. He has not practiced all week because of a shoulder injury.

The Uber driver told Buzz Feed News that she picked up Winston in Scottsdale, Ariz., around 2 a.m. local time on March 13, 2016. The driver alleged Winston “behaved poorly” as soon as he got in the car, and then asked her to stop at a drive-thru restaurant during the ride.While in line, the driver said Winston, who was the only passenger in the car, reached over and “grabbed” her crotch for three to five seconds.The driver told Buzz Feed News that she reported the incident to Uber at the time.
An Uber spokesman told ESPN that the “behavior the driver reported is disturbing and wrong. The rider was permanently removed from the app shortly after we learned of the incident. “Winston was in Arizona for Kurt Warner’s annual “Ultimate Football Experience” event during the weekend that the incident allegedly occurred.
Winston denied that accusation in a statement posted to social media on Friday afternoon.
“A news organization has published a story about me regarding an alleged incident involving a female Uber driver from approximately two years ago,” Winston said in the statement. “The story falsely accuses me of making inappropriate contact with this driver. I believe the driver was confused as to the number of passengers in the car and who was sitting next to her.  The accusation is false, and given the nature of the allegation and increased awareness and consideration of these types of matters, I am addressing this false report immediately. At the time of the alleged incident, I denied the allegations to Uber, yet they still decided to suspend my account.”I am supportive of the national movement to raise awareness and develop better responses to the concerns of parties who find themselves in these types of situations, but this accusation is false. While I am certain that I did not make any inappropriate contact, I don’t want to engage in a battle with the driver and I regret if my demeanor or presence made her uncomfortable in anyway.”
Uber confirmed to the Tampa Bay Times on Friday that on March 13,2016, a driver in Arizona reported the incident allegedly involving Winston shortly after the trip in question. Uber’s community guidelines prohibit any kind of sexual conduct.
The newspaper listened to a voicemail from Uber to Winston informing him that his account had been placed on hold pending an investigation into “inappropriate behavior.””Hi Jameis, this is Chris calling from the Uber office,” according to a call that a Times reporter listened to Friday. “I’m following up on a report we had from one of your recent trips where you or someone in the vehicle with you had some inappropriate behavior. I just want to follow up and get some more information on that.”

(SL)  –  Disturbing video shows how it only takes a split second for the course to change. Thank God this little girl is okay. She was joining her mother across the street when a black SUV literally ran over her.

What’s even more shocking is that the 3-year old’s mother is standing just a few feet away from her and is so consumed with sipping her drink, that she doesn’t even notice.

The incident happened at the entrance of a car park earlier this week in Zhejiang Province.

Onlookers rushed over and joined forces to free the child from under the car.

The little girl was taken to Yuhuan Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine where Dr Ying Jian, told reporters she luckily only suffered minor scratches on her forehead and fingertips.

Alabama Republican Senate Candidate Roy Moore Still Denying Sexual Misconduct Allegations

(SL) –  Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore is calling the allegations of sexual misconduct against him “false, untrue and hurtful.”

Speaking at a Veterans Day event near Birmingham yesterday, Moore said he is not been guilty of sexual misconduct with anyone.

Moore has been under fire since the “Washington Post” reported claims that Moore sexually harassed four teenagers while he was in his 30s.

The Washington Post reports one of the women, Leigh Corfman, says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore.

It was early 1979 and Moore — now the Republican nominee in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat — was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing.

“He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”

Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her. On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.

“I wanted it over with — I wanted out,” she remembers thinking. “Please just get this over with. Whatever this is, just get it over.” Corfman says she asked Moore to take her home, and he did.

Moore questioned why the women would have waited 40 years to make their accusations, calling the their stories “absolutely unbelievable.”

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as well as other Republicans have asked Moore to step aside in the Senate race.

Minister Of South Texas Church Preaches A Week After Massacre

(SL) – An emotional day in South Texas as members of the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs gathered for the first time since a gunman entered their church and killed 26 people.

Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy said during today’s service at a local baseball field that evil was responsible for last week’s shootings.

Pomeroy said he wanted to ensure everyone who walked in to the service “knows that those who died lived for their Lord and savior.” Pomeroy’s voice cracked as he paused and described the victims as “my best friends and my daughter.”

The crowd of worshipers then stood, clapped and raised their hands toward heaven.

Among those attending today’s emotional service was Texas Senator John Cornyn, who said he would propose changes to firearm background checks and the process of obtaining a firearm.

The service was moved from a community center to a local baseball field to accommodate the large number of attendees.

Aaron Hernandez Had Severe Case Of CTE

(SL)  – A researcher says Aaron Hernandez suffered the most severe case of CTE she’s evediscovered in a person his age, damage that would have significantly impacted his decision-making, judgment and cognition.

Dr. Ann McKee, the head of the CTE Center at Boston University, called Hernandez’s brain “one of the most significant contributions to our work” because of its pristine condition. Doctors diagnosed Hernandez with Stage 3 CTE, which researchers hadnever seen in a brain younger than 46 years old, McKee said.
His brain had significant damage to the front lobe, which impacts a person’s ability to make decisions and moderate behavior.
The Daily Mail reports, Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a degenerative brain disease that is caused by repeated hits to the head.  Over time, these hard impacts result in confusion, depression, dementia, explosiveness, aggression, and suicidal thoughts.

Researchers are still unclear on how CTE affects behavior, but a growing swell of studies is offering some answers.
  • CTE sufferers have clumps of tau protein built up in the frontal lobe, which controls emotional expression and judgment (similar to dementia)
  • This interrupts normal functioning and blood flow in the brain, disrupting and killing nerve cells
  • By stage 3 – i.e. Hernandez’s stage – the tau deposits expand from the frontal lobe (at the top) to the temporal lobe (on the sides). This affects the amygdala and the hippocampus, which controls emotion and memory
The disgraced star had a $41 million NFL contract when he was arrested at his home in June 2013 and charged with the murder of a semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

Lloyd was the boyfriend of Hernandez’s fiancee’s sister. He was found dead in an industrial park on June 17, 2013, riddled with bullets. Surveillance footage showed Hernandez at the scene an hour before, then arriving at home minutes after gunshots were fired.
In April 2015, Hernandez was convicted of first-degree murder, and sentenced to life in prison. While in prison, Hernandez was charged with another killing – a double murder committed by a drive-by shooting. But in April this year, he was acquitted of both charges.  The next day, he took his own life.
His family has since filed a lawsuit against the NFL and the Patriots on behalf of Hernandez’s four-year-old daughter Avielle, claiming the club and the league knew about the connections between football and CTE long before Hernandez was drafted.
