A man trying to help a lost toddler find her parents was misidentified as a kidnapper on social media over the weekend, according to police in Lakeland, Fla., prompting him to leave town in fear for his safety and the safety of his family. The man was also punched by the child’s father who told local media that he “thought he was trying to take my daughter” and “wanted to kill him.” The whole episode prompted the Lakeland Police Department to warn citizens to “be careful about what you post on social media so as not to victimize an innocent person … Before posting information on matters such as this, we encourage people to identify the source and the validity of such claims before sharing them.”
The INSIDER Summary: Tom Holland plays Spider-Man in Marvel's movies, including the upcoming "Spider-Man: Homecoming." He confirmed a popular fan theory that his character first shows up in 2010's "Iron Man 2." It's a scene where a kid almost fights a big robot - before Iron Man swoops in to save him. Tom Holland - who's playing Peter Parker AKA Spider-Man in Marvel's movies - confirmed a theory that fans have been wondering about for nearly a decade. As it turns out, Peter Parker was teased back in 2010's "Iron Man 2," way back when the partnership with Sony, which own the rights to use Spider-Man in movies, and Disney, which owns Marvel, was a mere glint in Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter's eye.
Stephen Colbert was in Russia last week, he revealed on Monday's Late Show. His audience may not have been aware of his travels, but "you know who did know I was in Russia?" Colbert asked. "Russian intelligence - hard-core fans, evidently, followed me everywhere." He explained that he and his crew returned from Moscow Sunday night, that he was still on Russian time, and that he would show some of the several segments he shot there in coming weeks. "But while Russia was fascinating, it is sincerely wonderful to be back in America," Colbert said. "Let's see what everybody's talking about here. Oh that's right, Russia." He walked through the big Washington Post report that former President Barack
Jamie Collins, a 6-foot-3, 250-pound linebacker, made a ridiculous request. Collins begged Gregg Williams, his defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns, to let him play safety in 2016. At first, the idea sounded enticing. Collins played safety - and nearly every other position - during his time at Southern Mississippi. Why not experiment with a different position? On second thought, however, the idea is ludicrous. And frankly, the Browns should be disappointed Collins is “begging” to play a position that isn’t his natural NFL role. “He’s begging me to play free safety, and I’m not saying he couldn’t be the best one out there right now,” Williams said via Cleveland.com. “If he wants to
DeMario said he immediately found a "homie" in Corinne as she was also defined as a villain on her season of The Bachelor with Nick Viall. "Our first real conversation was at the bar," he said of meeting her. "We were hanging out. We kind of were just complimenting each other on being villains. I was like, 'Look, I've accepted this role.' We were kind of just laughing, like, 'Oh, we're about to dominate Paradise!' Like homie stuff, like really, really like friends. And then, you know, we started having a little bit more fun...and had a few drinks." He admitted they took a couple shots and things started heating up between them. "From the bar scene, it got a little hot and heavy," he admitted.
By Anna Mehler Paperny and Rod Nickel TORONTO/WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - Thousands of people who fled to Canada to escape President Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal migrants have become trapped in legal limbo because of an overburdened refugee system, struggling to find work, permanent housing or enroll their children in schools. Refugee claims are taking longer to be completed than at any time in the past five years, according to previously unpublished Immigration and Refugee Board data provided to Reuters. Those wait times are set to grow longer after the IRB in April allocated “up to half” of its 127 tribunal members to focus on old cases. The number of delayed hearings more than doubled from 2015 to 2016 and is on track to increase again this year.
