Don Cheadle Wants War Machine To Return To MCU After "Avengers: Endgame"

Terrence Howard was the first actor to play War Machine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he was replaced with Don Cheadle in Iron Man 2. Since then, Cheadle has appeared in Avengers: Age Ultron, Iron Man 3, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. Although Endgame marked the end several contracts and heroes, Cheadle wants to get back into the MCU. 

According to Comicbook.com, at the TCA winter press tour Cheadle gave his opinion on what’s next in War Machine’s story. “If there were to be one, I’d really want to dig into him and maybe even find something that felt closer to the first Iron Man for who he was. I think they can go anywhere with him now.” War Machine would be a great candidate for a Disney+ series, although he doesn’t sound to sure if that’s an option for him at the moment. “I really don’t know… I haven’t given it much thought as far as which would be or if either would even be. That was an 11 year journey,” he stated in regards to a TV series. Disney+ currently has a lineup Loki, WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and Ms. Marvel.

Drew Brees Is Getting Calls About Becoming A TV Analyst: Report

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card round the playfs last weekend. This marks another painful playf loss for the Saints, although their veteran QB shows no signs stopping. Or does he? As reported by ESPNthe New Orleans Saints star quarterback has received calls from at least one non-ESPN network to inquire about whether he would be interested in transitioning from quarterback to TV game analyst, according to league sources. Brees has yet to announce a decision for his career, although many do not believe he is planning to retire right now. 

“Drew has not spoken with them or anyone about any new opportunities,” one source close to Brees told ESPN this weekend. “Until such time as a decision is made about next season, he will not be engaging in any conversations regarding or considering any new opportunities.” Saints coach Sean Payton said on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown that he believes Brees will return to the Saints next season and that he expects to speak with Brees as early as Monday. Brees, who turns 41 on Wednesday, has been in the league since 2001 when he was drafted by the San Diego Chargers. 

 

Utah Man Reveals 20-Year-Old McDonald’s Hamburger: "It Hasn’t Changed"

A man from Utah invited KUTV News into his home for a special unveiling a hamburger from McDonald’s that he’s had for over two decades. David Whipple unveiled his twenty-year-old hamburger for the first time in six years. What’s even more strange about it is that the burger, kept in a Big Mac tin, literally doesn’t look like it would be any older than a day or two.

This burger was initially bought on July 7th, 1999 in Logan, Utah. Initially, Whipple bought the burger to use as an example in presentations about enzymes and deterioration. “It got stuck in a coat pocket. The coat got thrown in the back my van, and I guess it just got hung up on our closet in Logan. Subsequently we moved from Logan to St. George, Utah, and it stayed there for a couple years and I think my wife was giving the coat away or something and found it,” Whipple recounted.

KUTV previously interviewed the man in 2013 when he first discovered the hamburger. He’s kept it in the Big Mac tin since. KUTV said that it still looked the same and didn’t smell like much aside from cardboard.

McDonald’s Utah has since issued a statement regarding the sandwich and its current state. Barbara Schmiett, McDonald’s Rep, suggested the reason the burger didn’t decompose was that it was hidden away in a tin. 

In the right environment, our burgers, like most other foods, could decompose. As the story alludes to — in order to decompose, you need certain conditions — specifically moisture. Without sufficient moisture – either in the food itself or the environment – bacteria and mold may not grow and therefore, decomposition is unlikely. So if food is or becomes dry enough, it is unlikely to grow mold or bacteria or decompose. Food prepared at home that is left to dehydrate could see similar results. Similarly, this particular burger is likely dried out and dehydrated, and by no means the same as the day it was purchased. The reality is our burgers are made with 100% USDA inspected beef. There are no preservatives or fillers in our patties and the only thing every added is a touch salt and pepper on the grill.

Citizens living in Colorado and Nebraska are a little on edge since drones are flying over their homes and neighbourhoods for reasons unknown.

“In terms aircraft flying at night and not being identified, this is a first for me personally,” Sheriff James Brueggeman Perkins County, Neb. told the publication, detailing how some residents have wanted to shoot them down. “I think it’s kind a joke, but you have to remember the part the country we live in. People here don’t like their privacy to be invaded.”

The drones are not breaking any laws but are making people feel anxious and nervous on its motive. “These drones have made residents in our community very nervous and anxious,” Sheriff Todd Combs Colorado’s Yuma County said in a Facebook post. “People do not like the unknown as it upsets the balance our lives. I will tell you right up front, I do not have a lot answers for you at this time. I wish I did, but I do not.”

Colorado’s Sen. Cory Gardner is working with the FAA to get to the bottom the issue. 

Caitlyn Jenner Apologized To Kids After Reality TV Backlash: "They Were Criticized"

Caitlyn Jenner was a on the reality show “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Here!” that was filmed in Australia. When a member the show gets voted f, they walk a jungle bridge and are usually greeted by family members at the other side. However, when Caitlyn was voted f she had no family members to meet her and it’s for that reason why people went for Kendal, Kylie, Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney on social media.

The 70-year-old Olympic gold decathlete chatted with The Daily Mail on the aftermath and explained how she apologized to her kids for the negative remarks since she never asked for any them to come. “My family are very well-known. I never asked any them to come down or expected them to — they all have businesses and families,” she said. “I was disappointed they were criticized. After the show was over, I texted or called all the kids to apologize.”

Caitlyn’s son Brandon was hit up on Instagram about the ordeal and he responded to a fan that the whole thing may have been a set up. “I think it might have been a “storyline” the producers wanted to fabricate in order to get more empathy for Caitlyn. That’s how that kind TV works,” he wrote. 

Comcast Raising Rates Again — Average Internet Bill Surpasses $80

Broadband cable provider Comcast is raising rates once again across the board, with its price for Internet service notably spiking.

The company’s Performance Internet plan, which provides download speeds of as much as 100 megabits per second, will rise from $74.95 to $77.95. Its Blast! plan, which provides speeds of up to 300 megabits per second, will increase from $94.95 to $97.95.

The cost for renting a broadband modem will increase as well, from $13 per month to $14 per month.

Television fees will increase, too, and more dramatically than Internet prices. The monthly charge for broadcast TV channels such as NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox will increase by more than 50%, from $8.25 to $12.70. In 2016, consumers paid only $5 per month for this service.

Comcast is blaming this particular rise to programming costs from local affiliates and other broadcasters. They say that these costs have more than doubled since 2006 and that, while they have absorbed some of this cost, they cannot absorb all of it.

This does not mean that the company is at all struggling, as in the last quarter alone it reported an operating profit of nearly $6 billion, with an operating profit margin of almost 40%.

Like with the cost of broadband modems, Comcast is also increasing the costs of TV boxes as well, from $2.50 per month to $4.60, and the cost of a remote will rise from $0.18 to $0.40.

But not all Comcast customers will see rises in prices, at least not right away. The company is not raising the prices for those who have promotional packages, as these are locked in for a specific term. Though, once this term is over, these customers will certainly see the increases.

Comcast customers are not the only ones who will soon see increases in prices for Internet and TV services. Hulu has announced that it is rising the monthly price of its Hulu Live TV service by $10 in the coming year. AT&T is raising prices, too, for its DirecTV customers.

Family Of Michigan Teen Who Died From Police Tasing Receive $12 Million Settlement

The family Damon Grimes, the 15-year-old who died after a Michigan state trooper tased him, has won a $12 million settlement in their wrongful death lawsuit against the Michigan State Police. The settlement is the largest that the Michigan State Police Department has ever paid for a single incident, claims a lawyer the family’s, Gefrey Fieger. The family will receive $7.8 million  the $12 million, nearly $4 million which will be put toward legal costs. “We hope this kind money will act as a deterrent,” said Fieger, “but unfortunately it rarely does.”

The tragedy occurred in August 2017 when police spotted Damon riding an ATV around a residential area Detroit in August 2017. The ficers followed Damon in their patrol car and asked him to pull over. When he didn’t immediately comply, ficer Mark Bessner shot him with a taser out the passenger side  the car. Damon crashed the ATV into the back a parked truck as a reaction to the tasing, and died shortly after on August 26th. The Michigan State Police found that Officer Bessner “undisputedly acted outside MSP policy and training” by shooting his taser at Damon, and he was suspended. Bessner, who did eventually retire, was criminally charged with Damon’s death, though in 2018, the first trial concluded with a hung jury. However, Bessner was convicted  involuntary manslaughter in 2019, and received a sentence 5 to 15 years in prison.

As for what he thinks Dustin will be up to next time fans are able to return to the franchise, he tells Variety, “It’s really hard to say because I don’t really know where the characters are going. He’s flapping in the wind at this point.”

He continues, “At the end the season, all the kids are divided because everyone moves away from Hawkins. Eleven goes with Will and Joyce to go try and find some type peace and the rest the gang stays behind. I don’t necessarily know how that’s going to work. I mean Mike and El being separated is crazy. I think fans are going to freak out.”

Matarazzo also commented on some the crazier fan theories that have been floated out there: “They’re all interesting. My favorite theory is that Suzie’s actually a Russian mastermind and spy working with the Russian government. I think it’s so stupid and so funny. I hope that doesn’t play out because that would be weird.”

No release date has been set for season 4.

 

ECSA Strongly Condemns 'Malpractices' of Epidemic Sound

The European Composer and Songwriter Alliance (ECSA) has issued a condemnation of music licensing platform Epidemic Sound, insisting that it shows “disrespect for fundamental authors’ economic and moral rights.”

The Belgium-based ECSA, which represents more than 30,000 songwriters and composers in nearly 30 European countries, feels that Epidemic Sound is taking advantage of music creators.

The company sells royalty-free music to various types of entities for use in their video productions. They acquire this music from 100% buy-out contracts, in which they buy full rights to music in exchange for a lump sum of money. The problem the ECSA has with the company is that it is allegedly using these contracts as an excuse to replace the actual author of the songs with its own name in credits.

The ECSA noted with disappointment how Swedish Public Service TV (SVT) has often listed Epidemic Sound as the creator of music that it uses in its productions. It claims that the SVT, which is funded by Swedish taxpayers, is both promoting Epidemic Sound and providing it financial value when it should really be promoting the actual creators of the songs and giving these people the financial value associated with such promotion.

In its complaint, the ECSA insists that the moral right of authors to receive attribution for their work has not only been recognized by international law for many decades but is also an integral part of Swedish law.

The ECSA is asking both companies and public broadcasters who are seeking music for their productions to refrain from doing business with companies like Epidemic Sound, which they believe do not respect the moral rights of authors. It is further asking music creators to refrain from signing away these rights.

The organization also wants all members of the European Union to prevent buy-out contracts that do not respect the moral rights of authors, in line with EU Articles 18 through 23.
