Utah woman records struggling delivery driver, takes to social media to help him

A woman in Utah became a good Samaritan by financially helping out her delivery man, a war veteran, and get back on his feet.

Captured on video, Jennifer Weiss saw Larry, who was only identified by his first name in reports, stumble up to her door while delivering groceries.

“It made me kind of feel guilty, to have someone else deliver stuff, just because I didn’t want to go to the store,” Weiss told ABC4 News.

The situation made her look within.

“Who he was and what his situation was, why he was doing deliveries, if he was going to continue doing deliveries when snow starts falling when stairs and driveways are icy,” Weiss said.

Larry took the job because he needed to pay for home repairs.

Megan Thee Stallion Made An Album For Every Black Woman Who Is Fed Up

On Sunday evening, as rapper Megan Thee Stallion racked up trophies and performed her new hit single “Body” on stage at the American Music Awards, rapper Tory Lanez had this to say on Twitter: “The double standard is wild.” 

It’s unclear which double standard Lanez, who is charged with shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July, was referring to. He recently pleaded not guilty to the charges related to the incident, which sparked conversations about the ways Black women are undervalued and underprotected.

When Lanez released an entire album earlier this year denying that he had shot Megan, people actively questioned whether she had even been shot (because she initially refused to name him), forcing her to share photos of her gunshot wounds to quiet skeptics.  

The jokes, memes and incredulity surrounding Megan’s “side of the story” swirled in conjunction with outrage and disgust over the release of Cardi B’s

Medic, man and woman all shot in SW, D.C. police say

The EMS worker was shot after being sent there to help treat the first of the two civilian shooting victims. The second civilian was shot at that time.

One of the civilians was a man, and the other a woman.

It appeared from preliminary accounts that the first shooting occurred near the 3900 block of Martin Luther King Jr Ave SE just before 4:30 p.m.

In a tweet police said a man was seen fleeing the area in a car.

Meanwhile, according to police spokeswoman Alaina Gertz, emergency personnel were sent to the area to treat the shooting victim.

At that point, Gertz said, the attacker in the first shooting apparently returned. Both the second civilian victim and the EMS worker were then shot, according to a preliminary account from Gertz. Police listed the site of that portion of the incident as the 3900 block of South Capitol Street SW.

Woman killed in Eastern Sierra wildfire identified

WALKER, Calif. (AP) — A person killed when a ferocious wildfire tore through a remote community in California’s eastern Sierra Nevada this week has been identified as a 69-year-old woman, authorities said Friday.

The remains of Sallie Joseph were found in the debris of her burned home in Walker, the Mono County Sheriff’s Office said.

“Her family has been notified, and our hearts go out to them for their loss,” Sheriff Ingrid Braun said in a statement.

Joseph was an Eastern Sierra poet, the Gardnerville, Nevada, Record-Courier reported. She contributed to and helped compile “Rain on the Sage: More Poetry from the Hunewill Ranch” published in 2003.


Dubbed the Mountain View Fire, the blaze erupted at midday Tuesday in Walker, one of several tiny communities along U.S. 395 near the California-Nevada state line.

Fierce winds spread flames into a neighborhood, destroying more than 90 structures including some homes. The fire

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ China Release Date Set

“Wonder Woman 1984” will hit theaters in China on Dec. 18, a week before the Warner Bros. tentpole launches in North America simultaneously in theaters and on the streaming service HBO Max. It will debut in cinemas in other international territories on Dec. 16.

The sequel, starring Gal Gadot, will be the first major Hollywood title to open in China since Disney debuted “Mulan” in September. The original “Wonder Woman” earned $90.5 million in China in 2017. “Wonder Woman 1984” reteams Gadot with director Patty Jenkins in a follow-up to the blockbuster that earned more than $820 million at the worldwide box office.

The China release of “Wonder Woman 1984” comes as moviegoing is recovering following the COVID-19 pandemic in that nation. War film “The Sacrifice” has earned $150 million since its release on Oct. 23 and year-to-date box office in China stands at $2.35 billion, according to data from

Man arrested after woman pushed onto New York City subway tracks as train approached

A New York City woman was shoved onto subway tracks as a train approached, in a terrifying, random attack caught on security video, authorities said Friday.

Luckily, the woman ended up inside — and not on top of — two rails and kept her head down as the train passed over at the Union Square Station in Manhattan at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday, witnesses and law enforcement said.

“It’s very disturbing,” New York Police Department Capt. Kathleen O’Reilly said. “We’ve seen him (the suspect on video) waiting, calculating for the train to approach the station.”

A 24-year-old homeless man, Aditya Vemulapati, was arrested and booked on suspicion of attempted murder and reckless endangerment, police said Friday.

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ to debut both on HBO Max and in theaters

“Wonder Woman 1984” is heading to HBO Max and movie theaters on the same day. The superhero sequel, from Warner Bros., is still expected to debut in the U.S. on Christmas Day.

Internationally, where HBO Max is not available, “Wonder Woman 1984” will play in theaters. The exact release date overseas is unknown.

Warner Bros. had been incrementally moving the Gal Gadot-led action adventure numerous times in recent months.

But with 50% of U.S. theaters out of operation, including major moviegoing markets like New York and Los Angeles, and many still hesitant to go to the movies, the studio decided it was too risky to open another $200 million-budgeted film on the big screen in the middle of the coronavirus crisis.

With “Wonder Woman 1984” gone from this year’s release calendar, 2020 is officially a wash for movie theater exhibitors. The DC Comics follow-up was the lone potential blockbuster left

Vanessa Kirby Talks About Filming a 30-Minute Labor Scene for ‘Pieces of a Woman’

Vanessa Kirby is getting a lot of Oscar buzz for her work in the Netflix movie Pieces of a Woman and she’s opening up about one of the pivotal scenes in the film.

The movie opens with a 30-minute labor scene and she discussed how she prepared for it during a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar.

“I started watching everything I could find. Endless documentaries, home birth videos, but everything was so sanitized; everything was so edited,” Vanessa said.

Vanessa ended up shadowing an obste­trician and witnessing a live birth.

“I watched her for six hours go through a really difficult labor, no painkillers, forceps. It got really, really difficult…I watched her go on a completely lone journey, like an odyssey, through the most primal, almost divine…And I saw the power and the fear in all of it. I came away far more of a woman in appreciating the
