    The Philadelphia Eagles had more to celebrate last night than their 28-23 win over the Carolina Panthers. Eagles wide receiver Marcus D. Johnson was baptized in a hotel swimming pool, with many of his teammates surrounding him. According to CBS Sports, those present were tight end Zach Ertz, offensive guard Stefen Wisniewski, tight end Trey Burton, linebacker Jordan Hicks and backup quarterback Nick Foles. Johnson posted a photo on Twitter commemorating the moment. “First time being Baptized!” he wrote. “Corporate Worship is a beautiful thing!! Cleansed & Reborn in JESUS name!!#WholeHeartedly.” First time being Baptized! Corporate Worship is a beautiful...

    Daniel Parfitt thought he’d found the perfect drone for a two-day mapping job in a remote patch of the Australian outback. The roughly $80,000 machine had a wingspan of 7 feet and resembled a stealth bomber. There was just one problem. His machine raised the hackles of one prominent local resident: a wedge-tailed eagle.

    Former White House strategist Steve Bannon told conservatives Sunday at a rally that they needn't worry about Democrats but instead should focus on the "corrupt and incompetent Republican establishment." "It's not the Democrats, we'll get to them and we'll beat them, like we beat Hillary Clinton," Bannon said. "But the first thing you've got to get through is a corrupt and incompetent Republican establishment," he told the crowd to cheers.
  • Philly Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz Grounded by His Faith in Jesus

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz loves football and Jesus Christ, not necessarily in that order. The second-year signal-caller recently gave a sermon at the First Assembly Church in Fargo, North Dakota, his hometown. “The myth in our world, in our society,” Wentz told the parishioners on June 28 according to WDAY TV in Fargo, “and even in the church, is that if I just have faith in Jesus, and I do enough good, that I’ll have salvation. You see that’s wrong. “The truth is faith alone in Jesus Christ is what equals salvation plus the works. It’s not just for...

    An unspoken mystery lingered beneath the parting clouds as Eagles took the stage on Saturday evening at Citi Field in Queens: How would the legendary band address the absence of its co-founder and co-leader Glenn Frey, who yielded to multiple illnesses in January 2016 at age 67? After the band opened with a crisp and lovely rendition of “Seven Bridges Road,” Joe Walsh answered that question as beautifully as possible: “Please give a warm Eagles-family welcome to Deacon Frey.” As his name in bright, red letters suddenly zoomed onto a giant screen above the stage, the spotlight hit Frey’s...
  • The Eagles Turn Classic West Into A Powerful Memorial For Glenn Frey

    When the Classic West and East, two two-day concerts in Los Angeles and New York headlined by the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac, were announced earlier this year, comparisons to last year’s wildly successful Desert Trip were immediate and inevitable. Like that once in a lifetime bill bringing together six iconic acts of one era, Classic West and East featured six bands from one era, in this case the ‘70s, joining together for a special bill. That is really where the comparisons end though. Unlike Desert Trip, which was much more about the event, night one of Classic West, held at...

    The Eagles have filed a lawsuit accusing the owners of a Mexico hotel of using the name "Hotel California," arguably the band's most famous song, without permission. In a complaint filed late Monday, the Eagles said owners of the 11-room Todos Santos hotel in Baja California Sur "actively encourage" guests to believe the hotel is associated with the band, in order to sell t-shirts and other merchandise, and make guests feel welcome. This allegedly included piping "Hotel California" and other Eagles songs through the hotel sound system, and selling t-shirts in that refer to the hotel as "legendary," resulting in...
  • French Police Are Training Eagles to Fight ISIS Drones, Terrorist Attacks

    In its fight to prevent future terrorist attacks on its soil, France has found an unlikely ally: the royal eagle. The French Air Force is currently training birds of prey to take down remote-controlled objects following reports that ISIS recruits are weaponizing consumer markets drones to carry out attacks against enemy fighters. The air force first acquired four royal eagles eggs last spring and began training them in a base in south west France after they reached adult size. The birds were placed on top of drones when they were still in their eggshells and kept there during the early...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration on Wednesday finalized a rule that lets wind-energy companies operate high-speed turbines for up to 30 years — even if means killing or injuring thousands of federally protected bald and golden eagles. Under the new rule, wind companies and other power providers will not face a penalty if they kill or injure up to 4,200 bald eagles, nearly four times the current limit. Deaths of the more rare golden eagles would be allowed without penalty so long as companies minimize losses by taking steps such as retrofitting power poles to reduce the risk of...

    Whether you are a fan of drones or not, one fact remains the same: the drone is here to stay. Considering the many positive things for which they can be used, it makes sense to welcome such possibilities. However, with pluses come minuses, and not every drone operator is going to have good intentions at heart. Due to the small percentage of people who enjoy behaving badly, it has become necessary to have plans in place to quickly and efficiently resolve drone-related issues. Although there are a few options for grounding a rogue drone, the Dutch National Police are taking...

    The Obama administration is revising a federal rule that allows wind-energy companies to operate high-speed turbines for up to 30 years, even if means killing or injuring thousands of federally protected bald and golden eagles. Under the plan announced Wednesday, companies could kill or injure up to 4,200 bald eagles a year without penalty -- nearly four times the current limit. Golden eagles could only be killed if companies take steps to minimize the losses, for instance, by retrofitting power poles to reduce the risk of electrocution. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe said the proposal will "provide a...

    It was inevitable, from the moment video cameras went up over Pittsburgh area bald eagle nests, that viewers would eventually see something disturbing. On Tuesday, eagles at the nest site in the Hays neighborhood brought a young cat into the nest to feed their two eaglets. "After reviewing the footage, we believe the cat was dead when it was brought to the nest," said Rachel Handel, spokeswoman for the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania. "We don't know if it was a pet or feral. It's impossible to know if the cat was killed by the eagle or was a roadkill,...

    Under a social media campaign dubbed “Name the Nestlings,” the public is invited to submit names via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Two final names will be selected by officials with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, wildlife experts and other groups. An announcement of the names will be made April 26 at a public event at the arboretum. To participate in the naming contest, people are encouraged to use the hashtags #dceaglecam and #namethenestlings and suggest two names for the eaglets that were born earlier this month.
