She warned the white slave owner that the rapes had to stop. Celia, 19, had endured five years of assaults by Robert Newsom, the widowed Missouri farmer in his 70s who’d purchased her when she was 14. She’d borne two of her predator’s children. Now she was being courted by an enslaved black man named George. When she became pregnant a third time, George told her the farmer’s abuse could not continue. Celia warned Newsom that she would hurt him if he came to her cabin again. She also asked his two adult daughters for help keeping their father away.

A few weeks back, folks on social media got wind that Markelle Fultz had seemingly forgotten how to shoot free throws. The first video evidence came during the Philadelphia 76ers scrimmage and as preseason went along, it was clear that nothing had been fixed.

“Let's talk about how I can do better,” Lisa Bloom said. It was a Friday morning - the first day the attorney was back in her Woodland Hills law firm following her resignation as Harvey Weinstein’s adviser - and she'd called her staff into a meeting. She wanted to apologize. She told her colleagues she'd made a "colossal mistake" in deciding to represent the Hollywood producer against numerous claims of sexual harassment.
