    A federal judge has dismissed a class-action racial discrimination lawsuit filed by current and former black employees of Time Warner, owner of Turner networks including CNN, TNT and TBS. U.S. District Court Judge William Duffey of the Northern District of Georgia said in Tuesday’s order that the employees didn’t meet legal standards to prove “a pattern and practice of intentional race discrimination.” The lawsuit filed in December claimed a pattern of discrimination against black employees, particularly men, in evaluations, pay and promotions. …

    CNN sister network TNT will be sponsoring the final two performances this weekend of the Trump assassination play Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar by the Public Theater in New York City’s Central Park. The cable network is using the sponsorship of the graphic assassination of President Donald Trump on stage to promote a new series about Shakespeare, Will, scheduled to premiere on July 10. The announcement follows the recent loss of sponsorships and controversy surrounding the Oskar Eustis-helmed production, which depicts Caesar as a Trump-like politician.

    Though Ridley Scott is best-known for directing feature films, including this week’s Alien: Covenant, he’s also extremely involved in TV—one recent example being his producing role on The Man in the High Castle. Next up, he’ll be working with TNT to bring even more science fiction to the airwaves. Deadline reports that Scott will fill what’s described as “a night of original scifi programming” with, potentially, “hourlong series, short-form programs and other formats to be developed in collaboration with the filmmaker.”

    NEW YORK, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- NBA on TNT has a crew of large former players with even bigger personalities. So it was no surprise Thursday, when Charles Barkley went off script to comment on presidential candidate Donald Trump and his supporters. "He started out by insulting to lump all the Muslims together, that's even more insulting," Barkley said. "This is the United States of America, this is the greatest place in the world. Do we have issues? Of course we have issues. But to try to divide and conquer, which is what the Republicans always try to do,...

For the simpler missiles a hot flame will suffice but technology is always improving and advanced missiles now look for the tell tale signatures of water and carbon dioxide to distinguish between a plane and a flare.

    Yes, there is a right way to blow up an animal carcass This, according to the US Forest Service document entitled "Obliterating Animal Carcasses with Explosives," is the right way. See those rectangles? Those represent sticks of dynamite. Their placement demonstrates how they should be positioned in order to achieve what the document calls "total obliteration." Pro-tip: The diagram up top illustrates how to explode a carcass when it needs to be eliminated quickly and absolutely. Under less urgent circumstances, the explosive placement illustrated below (corresponding to "partial obliteration") should suffice. Pro-tip #2: In some cases, it is probably best...

Pena said that after eight months of investigation, authorities would not seek formal charges against the Pakistani student, 29, who arrived in Chile in January to work in a tourism job. “The traces that were found were not enough to have him charged,” added Pena.

    Just an observation. Watching it just now the "blind Ralphie" scene was cut. The movie (at least the 2 AM showing) is missing the scene after Melinda Dillon tastes the soap when it should have cut to Ralphie. Offensive to the sight-impaired I guess, not that they'd have seen it. I told you not to use "Lifebuoy." Major Award destruction. Household accident or domestic violence by proxy?

    Is it a coincidence that TNT has been playing the movie, John Q, often this month? John Q was the Denzel Washington movie that was socialist propaganda for healthcare back in 2002. They played the move on October 8, 9, and 10 in their 8 pm time slot. Tonight the movie wasn't listed in the TV Guide, but there it was while I was flipping channels. Do they give the American public any credit for intelligence at all?

    So, on Saturday night, James Cameron's 1997 movie "TITANIC", with Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, came on at 7 p.m. I own the original on DVD and have seen that version close to 40 or 50 times. My young son is obsessed with anything that has to do with Titanic, so we've seen it a lot, and I know all of the scenes and most of the dialogue. As usual, when a movie is shown on TV, any foul language will be deleted, or replaced with other less offensive words. But in this version, I also noticed that when a...
