There's no doubt Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez are in love -- but it may not have been a love for conversation that drew them together. Rodriguez's ex-girlfriend, Anne Wojcicki, and her mom opened up about the high-profile relationship in the New York Times in a profile about Anne. "I liked A-Rod, he was a very nice man," Anne's mother, Esther, told the Times.
By now you've no doubt seen and heard the case that conspiracy theorists have put forth regarding their belief that NASA never actually landed on the moon. They believe that, for a number of different possible reasons, the original moon landing and all subsequent visits to the lunar surface were nothing more than a big Hollywood-level production. Evidence, of course, is harder to come by, but by scouring some vintage photos of the Apollo 17 landing that were only just released in recent years, they think they've finally nailed NASA in a history-shattering lie. The photo in question is pretty innocent at first glance, showing one of the Apollo 17 astronauts standing next to a large rock outcropping, with a small instrument sitting on the dusty lunar surface in front of him. However, the person taking the snapshot is visible in the astronaut's reflective visor, and if you're buying what the moon landing truthers are selling, he doesn't have a space suit on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=771BCym46JE The image speaks for itself, and depending on what you want to see you can either make a case that the truthers might be on to something, or that the distortion of the visor has pinched and stretched the reflection in a way that makes the astronaut appear to be wearing something much less bulky: The conspiracy angle would be that the person seen in the reflection is a crew member of the moon landing "production," standing off to the side and never meaning to be photographed at all. On the more conservative side of things, it's easy to see how the entire reflected image is pinched and distorted, and if you widen things a bit, the individual starts to look more like what you imagine an astronaut (made up of a couple dozen pixels) looks like: This stretched image is particularly useful because you can also more easily make out what appears to be a large backpack on the figure casting a shadow onto the lunar surface. That little tidbit would seem to support the official version of things, which is that Apollo 17 landed on the moon, as did several missions before it.
In a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Armie Hammer said that Nate Parker was held to a double standard last year when allegations of sexual misconduct against both him and Casey Affleck resurfaced, but only Parker suffered a career-affecting backlash. Parker, who directed and starred in The Birth of a Nation, appeared destined for Oscar glory after his film received a rapturous response upon its Sundance Film Festival premiere in 2016. However, an allegation of rape made against him during his time at Penn State, in 1999, was made public months later. Parker was acquitted in 2001, but another man involved, his roommate Jean Celestin, was initially convicted. (The verdict was later overturned
Charles Manson, the cult leader who died in prison on Sunday, has at least one devoted follower who is still roaming the world. Lynette "Squeaky” Fromme wasn’t involved in the California murders that landed Manson and a handful of his followers in prison, but she was handed a life sentence after pointing a gun at former President Gerald Ford in 1975. Throughout her years in prison, Fromme corresponded with Manson, and she was one of just a few of his followers who didn’t eventually denounce him. She was released on parole in 2009 at the age of 60 after spending 34 years in jail. "He's got more heart and spirit than anyone I've ever met,” Fromme said of Manson in a 1978 interview. "He's got everything

During an interview with Fox & Friends on Monday morning, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway urged Alabamans to vote for Republican Roy Moore, who is facing multiple allegations of child sex abuse, in the upcoming special election. Her reasoning: congressional GOP members needed a win on tax reform. “Doug Jones in Alabama, folks, don’t be fooled,” she said. “He will be a vote against tax cuts. He is weak on crime. Weak on borders. He’s strong on raising your taxes. He is terrible for property owners. And Doug Jones is a doctrinaire liberal, which is why he’s not saying anything and why the media are trying to boost him.” “So vote Roy Moore?” host Brian Kilmeade countered. After a beat, Conway
Argentina's navy revealed Monday that a submarine missing for five days reported a mechanical breakdown in its final communication, and that weekend signals did not come from the vessel, dimming hopes for its 44 crew members. It was therefore asked to change course and go to Mar del Plata," said Gabriel Galeazzi, the head of the naval base in the northeastern city, located 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of Buenos Aires. Enrique Balbi, a spokesman for the navy, meanwhile told a press conference in the capital that seven signals received by naval bases over the weekend were not attempted distress calls from the submarine, as previously hoped.
