NFL Shares Full Video Of Tom Petty’s Super Bowl XLII Halftime Performance [Watch]

first_imgIn recent years, Super Bowl halftime shows have gotten increasingly flashy. However, in 2008, the recently deceased rock icon Tom Petty challenged this, putting on a stellar show during Super Bowl XLII, which saw the New York Giants dramatically upset the New England Patriots at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. During his twelve-minute performance, Petty and The Heartbreakers ran through some of his greatest hits, laying out superb renditions of “American Girl,” “I Won’t Back Down,” “Free Fallin’”, and “Runnin’ Down a Dream” and letting the music speak for itself during his fairly stripped-down performance.This 1977 Interview Proves That Tom Petty Was Coolness Personified [Watch] You can watch Tom Petty and The Heartbreaker’s full Super Bowl XLII halftime show below, which the NFL published earlier in the week in remembrance of the late and great rock and roll hero.last_img

CNN executive apologizes to Kenya over ‘hotbed of terror’ comment

first_imgKenyans were not amused by CNN’s labeling and immediately took to social media to hurl insults and sarcastic humor at CNN under the hashtag #SomeoneTellCNN Kenyans were not amused by CNN’s labeling and immediately took to social media to hurl insults and sarcastic humor at CNN under the hashtag #SomeoneTellCNNU.S. news network, CNN, expressed deep regret on Thursday after portraying Kenya as a “hotbed of terror” ahead of President Barack Obama’s visit to Nairobi in July.CNN’s Global Managing Director, Tony Maddox, flew to Nairobi to personally deliver the apology to President Uhuru Kenyatta, admitting that the description of Kenya as a “hotbed of terror” was both ill fitting and undeserved.“It wasn’t a deliberate attempt to portray Kenya negatively; it is regrettable and we shouldn’t have done it,” Maddox said according to a statement issued in Nairobi after the meeting.“There is a world at a war with extremists; we know what a hotbed of terror looks like, and Kenya isn’t one,” the CNN chief added.“We acknowledge there is a widespread feeling that the report annoyed many, which is why we pulled down the report as soon as we noticed,” said Maddox who oversees CNN’s global editorial policy, and manages CNN news content globally, in his apology.The CNN reported on July 23 that President Obama was not just heading to his father’s ancestral land but to a “hotbed of terror”, sparking furious reactions from Kenyans on social media.Kenyan officials said the CNN headline, “Security fears as Obama heads to terror hotbed”, sought to discredit the status of Kenya as a secure nation.Last month’s report came in the wake of a similar gaffe by CNN before the Kenyan general election of 2013, which also sparked a campaign across Kenyan social media.On Thursday, Kenyatta expressed his deep disappointment at the story not only on behalf of the government, but also because it angered the people of Kenya.The president reiterated that the war on terror was a global threat, not exclusive to Kenya, and that Kenya’s troops and people have made great sacrifices and still do, to keep Kenya and the region safe.He added that CNN’s misrepresentation of Kenya was unfortunate and ill timed, since it came at a critical moment in Kenya’s history.“In one stroke, CNN’s description of Kenya as a ‘hotbed of terror’ undermined the sacrifices made by our Kenyan troops, and the value of hundreds of lives lost, and relegated them to nothing,” Kenyatta said.“That’s why Kenyans, as expressed by those on Twitter, were so angry. Kenya is nothing like the countries that have real war. There was no reason to portray Kenya in that way,” he added.Related Iran Denies Kenya Terror Links Kenya suspends CNN deal after ‘Hotbed of Terror’ slurcenter_img Revisiting Kenya’s Latest Terror Attacklast_img read more

Group plans ‘Operation Hay Lift’ to the flood zone

first_imgLeMARS — A farm organization based in North Dakota is offering help to the many farmers and ranchers who were hit by the recent flooding. Farm Rescue plans to activate “Operation Hay Lift” for the second time — the first time was during a drought.Farm Rescue is a non-profit organization that provides planting, haying, harvesting and livestock feeding assistance free of charge to farm and ranch families who have experienced a major illness, injury or natural disaster. Communications Director Dan Erdmann says farmers and ranchers have their cattle herds stranded because of the flooding.“We’re still feeling things out, and seeing what the reaction is going to be and what the need is going to be. We’re going to be hauling hay down to those ranchers, so, the big thing right now is we’re looking for hay donations to be able to haul that down to the ranchers affected by the…by the flood waters,” Erdmann says.The organization is seeking volunteers with a commercial drivers license to haul the hay.“We’re hoping to have a couple of trucks on the road in the coming weeks here to basically to haul continuously. That need is there, and it is a very immediate need. And also we’re looking for monetary donations to help support that cause.” Erdmann saysDan ErdmannFarm Rescue hopes to establish several drop off locations. Applications are now being accepted from farmers and ranchers in need of the donated hay. Erdmann says farmers and ranchers or livestock yards wanting to donate hay should contact Farm Rescue.“If you’re looking to join on as a volunteer, provide donations, or actually apply for assistance, you can go to our website,” he says. “Everything you need is right there. But, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call.”The organization’s phone number is 701- 252-2017.Farm Rescue’s first hay lift came in 2017 for farmers and ranchers in South Dakota and North Dakota suffering from a drought.  Erdmann says the organization had a successful event, hauling 275 semi trailer loads of hay to more than 154 farmers and ranchers.last_img read more

When will parts of Palm Beach County open up?

first_imgPalm Beach County officials are busy working on a strategy in collaboration with the Department of Health to open parts of the county.But when will that be?Palm Beach County leaders said last week that plans to reopen non-essential businesses will come in phases, but it won’t happen until the county reaches its peak of cases.Palm Beach County Vice Mayor Robert Weinroth is giving residents some insight into the county’s plans.In a Facebook post this week, Weinroth said they have identified a recent downward trend in hospitalization and coronavirus cases, which support the county beginning to slowly reopen in a “measured and phased approach.”Weinroth said the county’s effort to flatten the curve have been working over the last 30 days.“In the month, we have done that. We have seen a real result,” said Weinroth.He said the next phase the next phase, known as Phase 2, would slowly reopen parts of the county where people can still maintain CDC guidelines.“We have to do this with the idea that people have free will, and just because we open up a venue doesn’t mean you have to go,” said Weinroth.He says the proposed strategy in Phase 2 begins with reviewing relaxing restrictions to the following locations:1) Natural Areas and Parks2) Boat Ramps, Marinas and other water activities3) Golfing and Golf Courses4) BeachesThe vice mayor said the county is developing work groups that are meeting this week to “finalize the proposed rules, regulations and enforcement associated with the partial reopening of these areas.”On Thursday, Weinroth said an update will come from the county either Friday or early next week on when the public can see an actual plan for loosening some of the stay-at-home order restrictions.A key model used by White House said social distancing measures should continue into May or June for much of the country. The model shows Florida should be among the last state to lift so-called “stay-at-home” orders.“I think this is something that is best left at a local level,” said Weiroth in regard to the model used by the White House.Weinroth said it’s hard to lump all of Florida together with the difference in coronanvirus numbers from county-to-county.He said Palm Beach County has been working closely with the health department and other experts on how to safely take action.“It is not so easy just turning on a switch,” said Weinroth.last_img read more
