Nick Saban: Players aren't going to catch coronavirus 'on the football field. They're going to catch it on campus.'
Saban wonders why the argument hasn't been "we shouldn't be having school" instead of "we shouldn't be playing football."

Indian immigrant who drowned saving two children in US river had ‘big dreams’ of starting own business
An Indian immigrant who died saving two children from drowning in a California river had “big dreams” of starting his own business, his family said.Manjit Singh, 29, had been cooling off at Reedley Beach on the Kings River, Frenso, on Wednesday, shortly after finishing a driving lesson, when he heard a woman crying out for help.
Mic drop! "Realize that what someone says to us has a lot more to do with their own wounds and reality than ours," Danica wrote on Instagram Stories in response to an internet troll.
Investors who owned stocks in the 2010s generally experienced some big gains. In fact, the SPDR S&P 500's (NYSE: SPY) total return for the decade was 250.5%. But there's no question some big-name stocks did much better than others along the way.Berkshire's Difficult Decade: One underperformer of the last decade was Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK-A) (NYSE: BRK-B).Berkshire struggled throughout the past decade to keep pace with a bull market that was led by high-growth, high-valuation tech stocks. Buffett is one of the most iconic value investors of all time, but value stocks have underperformed in a climate of historically low interest rates and skyrocketing corporate debt.One of Buffett's best moves of the past 10 years was his decision to go all-in on Apple, Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) in May 2016. At the time, Apple shares were trading at around $110 per share. Roughly five years later, Apple is now trading at $444 and it's by far Berkshire's largest holding, worth around $111.5 billion.But Buffett also had plenty of missteps in the past decade as well. Buffett invested in airline stocks in 2016 only to sell them all in early 2020 near the market bottom during the COVID-19 sell-off.Berkshire's Class B shares started the 2010s trading at around $70 after a 50-to-1 stock split in early 2010. Berkshire hit its decade low of $65.35 in late 2011. Berkshire shares then began a steady march higher over the next three years, peaking at $152.94 in late 2014.From there, Berkshire spent most of the next two years trading sideways in a wide range of between $125 and $150. The stock finally broke out to the upside in late 2016.2020 And Beyond: Berkshire ultimately peaked at $231.61 in early 2020, its high point of the last 10 years. However, Berkshire shares were hammered in early 2020 during the broad market COVID-19 sell-off, and the stock dropped to as low as $159.50, its lowest point since 2017. While the stock has since rebounded to around $210, it has still delivered underwhelming overall performance over the past 10 years.In fact, $1,000 worth of Berkshire stock in 2010 would be worth about $2,614 today, assuming reinvested dividends.Looking ahead, analysts expect Berkshire's climb to resume in the coming months. The average price target among the three analysts covering the stock is $223.45, suggesting 6.7% upside from current levels.President Barack Obama meets with Warren Buffett in the Oval Office in 2011.

Larry Wilmore Has Outtakes From the ‘Diversity Day’ Episode of ‘The Office’ and He’s Already Said Too Much
Larry Wilmore told TV critics on Monday that he has outtakes from his scene with Steve Carell in the classic “Diversity Day” episode of “The Office” that he “can’t even say what they are.”The implication being that the outtakes were even more politically incorrect than what made it to NBC’s airwaves in March 2005, on just the second-ever episode of the American “The Office.”Those outtakes with Carell — who played Dunder Mifflin manager Michael Scott, the man whose offensive impersonation of a Chris Rock stand-up comedy routine triggered the need for Wilmore’s character to administer office-wide sensitivity training — “were so funny,” Wilmore said.Also Read: Peacock Picks Up Will Forte's 'MacGruber' to Series, So 'Spread the Word, You Friggin' Turds' (Video)And none of it would fly today. When asked during a press conference for his upcoming Peacock late-night series if the “Diversity Day” episode of “The Office” could be made today in the current political landscape, Wilmore, who was a consulting producer on the sitcom, said, “Absolutely not.”“There is no way … ‘Diversity Day’ could be produced today, and probably rightly so,” he said at the NBCUniversal streaming platform’s (virtual) Summer 2020 CTAM press tour. “In fact, I have outtakes from that scene with Steve Carell that I can’t even say what they are that were so funny.”Forget the new Peacock late-night series (not really, we love you Larry), get us those screeners.Also Read: 'The Rich Eisen Show' Heads to Peacock After Brief Stint on NBC Sports Network“But you never know, things swing back and forth all the time. The culture is very malleable in that way, the things that we find. It’s not so much the things that we can make fun of, but the things we find we can laugh at, and it’s OK to laugh at,” Wilmore continued. “I think I have more things on my list than most people and I acknowledge that and it’s probably why I get in trouble sometimes. I honestly think that the more we can laugh about tough things I just think the better off we are.”Wilmore’s currently untitled late-night Peacock series, which will feature “real discussions with high-profile people from all different backgrounds including sports, politics and entertainment,” was given an 11-episode order.“The Office” will be available on Peacock Jan. 1, 2021 and, until then, it’s on Netflix. Wilmore’s Peacock show will debut in September.Margeaux Sippell contributed to this story.Read original story Larry Wilmore Has Outtakes From the ‘Diversity Day’ Episode of ‘The Office’ and He’s Already Said Too Much At TheWrap
