  2. http://variety.com/2017/biz/news/disney-fox-merger-deal-52-4-billion-merger-1202631242/ The Walt Disney Co. has set a $52.4 billion, all-stock deal to acquire 20th Century Fox and other entertainment and sports assets from Rupert Murdoch’s empire. The deal between Disney and 21st Century Fox marks a historic union of Hollywood heavyweights and a bid by Disney to bolster its core TV and film businesses against an onslaught of new competitors in the content arena. Key elements of the transaction unveiled Thursday morning: The deal values the 21st Century Fox assets in the transaction at $66.1 billion, including $13.7 billion in 21st Century Fox debt, or $28 a share. The enterprise value of the deal is $69 billion. Disney chairman-CEO Bob Iger has extended his contract with the company for another two years, through the end of 2021, in order to oversee the integration of the assets. 21st Century Fox shareholders will receive 0.2745 Disney shares for each Fox share held, giving Fox shareholders about 25% of Disney. 21st Century Fox will spinoff Fox Broadcasting Co., Fox Sports, Fox News, Fox Television Stations and a handful of other assets into a new company that will have revenue of $10 billion and earnings of about $2.8 billion. The 20th Century Fox lot in Century City will also remain with the spinoff Fox company. 21st Century Fox will continue to pursue its acquisition of the remaining 61% stake in Euro satcaster Sky that it does not already own with the intention of Disney taking it over when the Disney-Fox transaction is completed. Disney expects to realize $2 billion in cost savings from combining Disney and Fox’s overlapping businesses within two years of the deal’s closing. Disney expects the regulatory review of the acquisition to take as long as 18 months.

  5. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/dc-sports-bog/wp/2017/08/24/britt-mchenry-rips-left-wing-climate-that-led-to-espns-robert-lee-decision-on-fox-news/?utm_term=.7ebfc1590dc4 Given the political overtones of the story about ESPN switching announcer Robert Lee away from a college football game in Charlottesville, not to mention how viral it went, it should have been no surprise that it came up on Fox News. Sure enough, Tucker Carlson discussed the topic on his show Tuesday, and then again Wednesday with a panel that included Clay Travis, the sports personality who broke the story. Perhaps it also should have been no surprise that Britt McHenry was also on the panel. The former ESPN reporter, an anchor at WJLA before then, has been espousing the sort of conservative opinions that play well with many in Fox’s audience. After Carlson introduced McHenry as having said she was fired by ESPN for her conservative views, she told him, “I can tell you as a former employee that ESPN does do its due diligence in trying to protect the physical safety of its employees,” citing its efforts on her behalf during a playoff hockey game she covered shortly after a video emerged showing her belittling an employee of a towing company. “So I would like to believe, because that would be the only logical consideration, that maybe that was discussed behind the scenes,” she continued, “but I think it’s more of a reflection of society right now, and how left-wing and PC it’s gotten, that even your name, given at birth, or the possibility of a meme on the Internet, is a reason to make a personnel change.”

    https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2017/09/reds-manager-bryan-price-to-return-in-2018.html Manager Bryan Price will remain at the helm of the Reds in 2018, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Thanks to a clause in the contract Price signed last year, the Reds were required to inform him by Saturday whether they’d exercise his 2018 club option. However, the team actually assured him in July that he’d return, per Rosecrans, who adds that Price’s entire coaching staff will likely be invited back.
  14. Just another day in Washington, DC..... http://dcist.com/2017/08/dinosaur_protest.php First the life-size squirrels came out to tell Republicans that a proposed healthcare provision was "nuts." Now, people dressed as dinosaurs rising from the long dead are warning against the extinction of the Corporation of National and Community Service, which funds tens of thousands of Americorps positions each year. As a protest theme, "extinction makes the most sense given that there are 1 million people who have done AmeriCorps over the past 20 years," says Aly Ferguson, the director of communications for the non-profit Service Year Alliance. "It's a species of its own and all of these people who are in it right now would have no one else to follow in their footsteps."

Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you”
  17. I was at the game, and it started at 4:25. I thought what you did as well, it was supposed to be a 4:30 start. There was quite a bit of your fan base there.
  18. The way she is posting on social media about politics all the time, I suspect that will be her next career. On Instagram a while ago, she said she is still under contract with ESPN which is why she can't announce her next move yet. She has got a lot of articles in The Washington Post recently. I guess it helps she has more freedom now than when she was employed.

  20. Hollywood out of ideas?

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/jetsons-live-action-tv-comedy-works-at-abc-1030391 Prepare to meet George Jetson (again). ABC is teaming with producers Warner Bros. Television to develop a live-action multicamera comedy based on the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon family from the 1960s.

The ABC take is described as based on the original animated series, the sitcom is set 100 years in the future and revolves around America's favorite future family — told through a modern filter.

  21. Charlottesville

    http://variety.com/2017/digital/news/barack-obama-twitter-record-most-liked-charlottesville-nelson-mandela-1202529245/ Former President Barack Obama has set the record for the most-liked tweet in Twitter’s history, with his post quoting Nelson Mandela in response to the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. Obama’s Aug. 12 tweet was posted after a rally of white nationalists and neo-Nazis resulted in the murder of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, who was struck by a car that smashed into a crowd of anti-hate protesters. The post set the record at about 7:07 p.m. PT Tuesday, when it topped 2.7 million likes, according to Twitter. Obama quoted Mandela, the South African political and anti-apartheid resistance leader, in a series of three tweets: “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” The first the Obama’s Aug. 12 tweets surpassed the previous record-holder for most-liked Twitter post, which was Ariana Grande’s distraught message following the Manchester terrorist attack in May after she performed a concert. That has 2.7 million likes.
  22. The Speed Limit Poll

    I thought for the longest time Waze was a huge data drain (I have a limit), but I have used it a lot recently, and it hasn't put a big dent into my limit.
  23. The Speed Limit Poll

    Waze has helped in detecting cops (Radar Detectors are illegal in VA), but that would be relying on others of course. I-81 in VA is a speed trap the entire distance, and on a trip I made last year to Nashville, I kept it at 9 over the entire way and didn't get pulled over.
  24. Elizabeth Warren knocks it out of the park!!!

    http://money.cnn.com/2017/08/08/investing/wells-fargo-auto-insurance-scandal/index.html?iid=hp-toplead-dom Senator Elizabeth Warren and some of her Democrat colleagues want to grill Wells Fargo CEO Tim Sloan and Chairman Stephen Sanger about the recent scandals. They wrote a letter on Tuesday to Mike Crapo, the Republican chairman of the Senate banking committee, requesting a September hearing. Crapo's committee did not respond to a request for comment from CNNMoney.
