  • How James Patterson's novel 'Zoo' became a series on CBS

    Los Angeles Times ^ | May 29, 2015 | T.L. Stanley
    No need to head to the multiplex for big action, special effects and hair-raising thrills, says bestselling author James Patterson, when the CBS adaptation of his novel, "Zoo," promises all that — and rampaging wildlife, to boot. "It should give the summer movies a run for their money," said Patterson, a populist literary star perhaps best known for his Alex Cross franchise, less so for being understated. "There's horror, sci-fi, suspense. It's kind of James Patterson meets Stephen King meets Michael Crichton. It's a scary fable."

    What if the Allies had lost World War II, the Nazis had been first to develop the atomic bomb, and the Germans and Japanese had carved up control of United States? That's the premise of the new streaming series from Amazon, The Man in the High Castle — an adaptation of the 1962 book by the same name. And the show is fantastic.N

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- By the time Madison Bumgarner took the mound to throw his first pitch, the San Francisco Giants already held a three-run lead. It might as well have been 100 with the way MadBum and this orange-and-black bunch play in the World Series. Bumgarner carried a shutout into the seventh inning, Hunter Pence homered early and the Giants showed off their October poise, putting a sudden stop to the Kansas City Royals' perfect postseason roll by romping 7-1 in the Series opener Tuesday night.

    MANKATO, Minn. -- Giving a stranger a wet Willy could get you an annoying look, a profanity riddled verbal response or even a punch in the nose. When that stranger is a police officer on duty, it turns out it's a crime -- one that a Mankato officer thought was more than an extra gross misdemeanor. He responded to the wet pokes to his ears by hauling the perpetrator off to the pokey and requesting a felony charge. Armed with two freshly licked fingers, a former Kiester man home on leave from the Air Force thought it would be funny...

    The risk of dying from a gunshot wound is twice as high for African Americans as it is for white Americans, according to a new study based on 11 years’ worth of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Between 2000 and 2010, the rate of firearm-related fatalities in the U.S. was 9.05 per 100,000 people for whites and 18.51 per 100,000 people for blacks. When factoring in the 3.38 deaths per 100,000 people of other races, the country’s overall gun-related death rate was 10.21 per 100,000 Americans, researchers reported Thursday in the journal BMJ Open. That racial...

    President Shimon Peres on Monday hailed remarks by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on the issue of the “Palestinian refugees”, AFP reported. Peres, who said Abbas’s comments showed his "seriousness about reaching peace", was referring to what Abbas said during a meeting Sunday with more than 300 Israeli university students at his Ramallah headquarters. At the meeting, the PA chief told the students said he did not want to "flood Israel" with so-called “Palestinian refugees” and that there was no need to "re-divide" Jerusalem. "I was happy to hear him," Peres's office quoted him as saying at the start of...

    The television drama series based on the Bible and shown on the History Channel has amazed critics by garnering huge viewing figures across America and becoming the most surprising television hit of the year. Defying expectations that a simple retelling of Bible stories, including those of Adam and Eve, and Samson and Delilah, would not appeal to a modern audience, the 10-hour series has been making headlines and had more than 13 million viewers for its first episode. The Bible has consistently been the top-rated cable television programme on Sunday nights, and some reports estimate that 50million people have watched...

By the time "Gunsmoke" rolls around, Dillon's hair is a brown color.

    Why should Sarah Palin run for the GOP nomination? Obama is totally beatable by any Conservative because he is a true Marxist progressive ideologue and when it comes to Medicare and other entitlement programs the President is not being honest with the American people. He knows that Medicare is quickly becoming insolvent and will eventually destroy the American economy; his party’s answer is to attack those seeking solutions and to kick the can down the road. If the President continues to refuse to lead on this issue then he is in direct violation of his oath of office to protect...

    Seton Hall Constitutional ^ | 2001 | Roger Roots
    Police work is often lionized by jurists and scholars who claim to employ "textualist" and "originalist" methods of constitutional interpretation. Yet professional police were unknown to the United States in 1789, and first appeared in America almost a half-century after the Constitution's ratification. The Framers contemplated law enforcement as the duty of mostly private citizens, along with a few constables and sheriffs who could be called upon when necessary. This article marshals extensive historical and legal evidence to show that modern policing is in many ways inconsistent with the original intent of America's founding documents. The author argues that the...

The surveillance had been going on since 2000, said the report.

A rare mix of veteran rejects and budding stars completed an unlikely ascent to the Major League summit Monday night, allowing all to repeat a five-word phrase never before heard: World Series champion San Francisco Giants. The Giants made franchise history with a 3-1 triumph over the Rangers in Game 5 of the World Series, ignoring their underdog status to capture the 106th Fall Classic, four games to one. An unlikely hero combined with a likely one to elevate San Francisco to new heights.
