    (CNN)It was a moment caught on camera -- a heroic act that thrust Patrick Hutchinson, a London father and grandfather, into the limelight. Last summer, when he rescued a man at a London protest that had turned violent, Hutchinson unwittingly stepped onto the world stage. It wasn't something Hutchinson, now 50, had planned -- but now he is using the newfound fame for good. "I didn't see color," Hutchinson said. "I just saw somebody who needed help."It was June 13 and Hutchinson was at home, babysitting his grandchildren, when a friend called him. Fearful that a demonstration involving a far-right group and Black Lives Matter protesters could turn violent, the friend, Pierre Noah, asked him for help."Pierre twisted my arm," Hutchinson said. "The idea was to stop any of these young protesters from doing anything that they're going to regret later on. When you're Black, especially, and you end up...

    Sarah Bouhaddi slide tackles Megan Rapinoe during the 2019 World Cup. Joosep Martinson - FIFA/FIFA via Getty Images Megan Rapinoe called French national team goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi "overrated" during an episode of her Instagram live series, "A Touch More," last year. The USWNT star famously scored twice on Bouhaddi during their 2019 World Cup semi-final match. The keeper is now rumored to be joining Rapinoe's NWSL club, OL Reign. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Things are about to get pretty awkward in the OL Reign locker room. Olympique Lyonnais President Jean-Michel Aulas announced in late January that two stars from the powerhouse European club — which has won the Champions League on the women's side in each of the past five seasons — are slated to join their NWSL counterpart in 2021. The OL Group gained majority ownership of Reign in late 2019, which has streamlined...

    After Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, tweeted that “something extremely bogus” was going on with rapid COVID-19 tests, one biologist just wasn’t having it. Dr. Emma Bell (@emmabell42), an expert in epigenetics, explained that the likely reason behind his varying results is that rapid antigen tests can only detect a high level of infection. It’s not that they’re ineffective, it’s that they serve a slightly different purpose—to quickly identify the most contagious people so as to limit the spread of infection. Bell ended her tweet by blasting Musk as “Space Karen” for his failure to appropriately research the test, its purpose, and how it works before calling “bogus” in front of his millions of followers. Hide Twitter/emmabell42 Hide Twitter/emmabell42 Hide The internet responded to Musk’s new nickname with absolute glee, with Twitter user @EmergMedDr begging everyone to come together and make it stick. @EmergMedDr Hide...
    The Arizona PR executive who was dubbed a 'Karen' after she was seen in a viral video destroying a rack of masks inside a Target while shouting that the pandemic was over, is turning her life around months after her 'mental breakdown episode.'  Melissa Rein Lively, 35, made headlines on July 4 when she uploaded an Instagram video of herself throwing masks on the floor and yelling at two Scottsdale Target employees, while boasting about her $40,000 Rolex.  Footage of the incident quickly went viral, triggering an onslaught of online abuse and death threats, leading Lively to believe her life and successful career was over.  Speaking to The Washington Post four months on, Lively revealed she is now in a better place and is in the process of writing a memoir called 'You Can't Cancel Me - The Story of My Life.'

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota U.S. Senate race is tightening according to a new poll out Thursday. This comes as Republican candidate Jason Lewis begins making public appearances after emergency surgery earlier this week. The former U.S. Representative is challenging incumbent Democratic Sen. Tina Smith. And the race is now being called a toss-up. The latest poll shows Senator Tina Smith leading by three points over Jason Lewis 45-42. Lewis, who is recovering from major abdominal surgery this week, says he thinks the tightening race is because of his emphasis on law and order and loosening COVID restrictions. “We are coming home to sanity,” Lewis said. “You can’t continue with perpetual riots, perpetual lockdowns.” In these final weeks, Smith has had to balance a busy Senate schedule with nonstop campaign appearances statewide. “How do you make sure you have access to childcare so that you can go back to work especially...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, have been mum on the question of court-packing should they win the November election, but in 1983 Biden was much more outspoken on the issue, calling it a “bonehead idea.” Biden, then a U.S. Senator from Delaware, made the comments during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in July 1983 regarding nominations to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. At the time, Republican President Ronald Reagan had stoked controversy for attempting to replace three members of the commission. Biden argued at the time that, although it was within the president’s right to do so, it risked damaging the credibility of the commission. He compared it to President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s unsuccessful attempts in 1937 to expand the Supreme Court by six justices – in other words, pack the court.   “President Roosevelt clearly had the right to send...
    A mother who was cruelly called the Batman character 'Two-Face' due to her large facial birthmark said she never thought she would find love - but now has her dream husband and kids.  Chelsey Peat, 34, was born with a rare condition called Sturge-Weber Syndrome, a neurological disorder which means has a large birthmark on the left side of her face, along with glaucoma in her left eye.  The mother-of-two from Lethbridge, Alberta, said bullies made her life a 'living hell', throughout school, with Chelsey being taunted daily and called cruel names such as 'monster' and 'freak'. Chelsey said her tormenters also nicknamed her 'Two-Face', after the infamous Batman character who is horrifically scarred on the left side of his face following a chemical attack.

    SAN ANTONIO – As San Antonio continues to grow you might have noticed a new building on Broadway just north of downtown that looks like it’s made of glass and wood. It’s called The Soto and it is one of the most technologically and ecologically high-end buildings in San Antonio. “It’s Good for the environment, not only in San Antonio but the whole world,” John S. Beauchamp of Hixon Properties said. The timber makes the building looks sleek, modern and cool, but it is so much more than that. “When you’re building out of mass timber you’re building out of young farm grown trees, taking carbon dioxide out of the air which is then being stored in the building -- our building actually has a negative carbon footprint,”Beauchamp said. And one of the concepts you might notice is the lack of vents in the ceiling, and that’s because the air flows through the floors. “All...

    Donald Trump and his latest personal attorney Author E. Jean Carroll was a well-known New York area television host in 1996 when she encountered Donald Trump at a Manhattan department store. At first Trump greeted Carroll with what she remembered as “banter,” but when she emerged from a dressing room a short time later and called a friend, it was obvious that Carroll was extremely upset. The friend reported that Carroll kept saying that Trump pulled down her clothes, shoved her against the wall, and raped her, all while she tried to fight back. Carroll also described the incident to a colleague two days later, but was reluctant to go to the police. When Carroll spoke about assault by Trump during a 2019 interview, the immediate response from Trump was to called Carroll’s claims about the rape a “totally false accusation” and to call Carroll “a woman who's also accused other men...

    After a DC FanDome panel where cast and crew of Shazam! insisted that they couldn’t share a single detail about the sequel to their 2019 film — the cast and crew of Shazam! revealed not just a new title but also a brand new member of the cast. Maybe. The sequel to Shazam! will be Shazam: Fury of the Gods, and Sinbad might be in it? Right now you might be wondering “Wasn’t David ‘Sinbad’ Adkins already in a movie called Shazam?” No. The idea that Sinbad played a genie in a movie called Sh azam sometime in the 1990s is a prime example of the Mandela Effect. There was a movie about a genie played by a famous, contemporary Black actor/luminary — but it was called Kazaam, and it starred Shaquille O’Neil. The Sinbad/Shazam connection is such a widespread misconception that it even reached the actor...
    Fresh from announcing that its subscription service is coming to Steam, Electronic Arts is changing the service’s name, too. EA Access on PlayStation 4, Steam, and Xbox One, and Origin Access on PC, will be known as EA Play beginning Tuesday, Aug. 18. OK. Why? “EA Play puts you at the center of the experience,” the company said in a blog post Friday. “Moving all the benefits to a single brand is an important step in streamlining our services to ensure that being an EA Play member is the best way to play.” If you were paying attention in June, you might have noticed that EA Play, the publisher’s gala event during E3 week, was called EA Play Live. It will go by that name going forward. Earlier this week, EA announced that EA Access — sorry, EA Play — will launch soon on Steam, part of the publisher’s...
    MONTGOMERY (CBS) — A 6-year-old girl was found dead in her Kendall County home, and her parents charged with involuntary manslaughter. But, could Kerri Rutherford’s death have been prevented? CBS 2 Investigator Megan Hickey is digging into the red flags, which include more than a dozen calls to police and the Department of Children and Family Services before her tragic death. Kerri was found in her Montgomery home on July 2, and her cause of death was initially unknown. “When I saw them at the house my first response was, ‘It’s Kerri,’” a neighbor, Monica Alexander said. “I just assumed that she was hurt or she was gone. And then when they didn’t take her away, I knew.” Alexander had called police several times in the past to report her concerns. According to police dispatch accounts, authorities found a “6-year-old female, possibly not breathing, bleeding from the nose, turning different...
    Polling on the 2020 presidential race is even more off-base than it was in 2016, Lara Trump, President Trump's daughter-in-law and campaign adviser, told "Bill Hemmer Reports" Thursday. The current RealClearPolitics polling average shows presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden leading Trump in the battleground state of Pennsylvania by 6.4%. At the same point four years ago, Clinton led Trump in the Keystone State by an average of 9.2%. Nationally, the RealClearPolitics polling average has Biden leading Trump by 7.5% "It is not even called the silent majority anymore ... it's called the silenced majority," Lara Trump told host John Roberts. CHARLIE HURT DESCRIBES 'UNCANNY' SIMILARITIES BETWEEN 2020, 2016 ELECTION POLLING: 'IT'S REMARKABLE' "People in this country feel like they cannot speak out and voice their support for the sitting president of the United States, but I do believe on November 3rd, they will speak out resoundingly and re-reelect him," she went on. "Look, I was just in Pennsylvania, I'll tell you what, the people there are terrified...
    So long, Twitch Prime. Today, Amazon is rebranding the suite of video game-focused perks to match the naming convention of its other digital services, such as Prime Video and Prime Reading. The newly-named Prime Gaming works the same way as before. It’s bundled with Amazon Prime — the company’s all-encompassing subscription service that includes faster ‘premium’ deliveries — and offers a bunch of digital goodies that are designed to entice gamers. These include a free channel subscription on Twitch (if you don’t have Prime, these normally cost at least $5 per month), a smattering of games and items for popular titles such as Apex Legends . Amazon hasn’t said why it’s rebranding Twitch Prime. We’re guessing some Prime customers still aren’t aware that Twitch Prime exists or comes with their membership. There might be some users, too, who play games but don’t use Twitch and wrongly assume that the perks...

    When Trader Joe’s founder Joe Coulombe died earlier this year, he was hailed as a marketing whiz, a retail visionary. He had opened a small, nautical-themed market in South Pasadena in 1967 and watched it grow into an empire of nearly 500 stores nationwide. But today that empire, known for its trading-post motif and international product lines, has come under attack for its branding of ethnic foods. The names Trader Ming’s, Arabian Joe’s, Trader Jose’s, Trader Giotto’s and Trader Joe San appear on items such as habañero and lime salsa, gyoza dipping sauce and artichoke antipasto. The popular Southern California institution has created “a narrative of exoticism,” according to an online petition posted about two weeks ago calling for Trader Joe’s to remove and rebrand a variety of products with “racist” labeling. “The Trader Joe’s branding is racist because it exoticizes other cultures — it presents ‘Joe’ as the default...
