Just over 24 hours after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane after claiming the jet had violated Turkish airspace, Moscow is already exacting its revenge — albeit subtly. "We're not going to wage a war against Turkey. ... But we will seriously reconsider our agreements with the Turkish government," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in a press call on Wednesday, according to The Associated Press. "Our attitude to the Turkish people hasn't changed," Lavrov continued. "We only have questions about the Turkish leadership." Turkey defended its decision to down the plane on Tuesday, contending that the plane was in Turkish airspace and had been warned repeatedly before it was shot down by
The common defense to criticisms of racial disparities in police use of force takes the form of a question: "But what about black-on-black crime?" The conservative argument is that black people are disproportionately killed by gun violence in their own communities, so perhaps they should worry about that before they worry about what police are doing. On Tuesday night, Fox News's Mike Tobin put the black-on-black crime question to a protester in Chicago, Brendan Glover, after the release of a video showing the police shooting of Laquan McDonald. Mike Tobin: Essentially the question he's getting to is why is there not outrage when there's black on black violence.

“Skittles parties” may sound innocent, but they are far from it: They’re an alarming trend in which teens raid their parents’ medicine cabinets and dump the prescription and over-the-counter drugs they’ve gathered into a communal bowl. The teens then take handfuls of a random assortment of pills, often with alcohol, to get high. Several teens have overdosed after playing Russian roulette with pills at these parties, which are also known as “pharming parties.” Last month, five high school students in Marin County, California, overdosed after an apparent “Skittles party” and were taken to the hospital. He died from a drug overdose after a “Skittles party” in 2013, just days before he was supposed to head off to college.
There are, like, 99 problems with Ray Lewis working as an analyst for ESPN and this particular ethics violation totally is one. On Sunday night, one day before commentating on Monday night’s Buffalo-New England game, Ray Lewis gave a pep talk to the Bills, coached by Rex Ryan, Lewis’s former defensive coordinator in Baltimore. The next night, he “analyzed” the game on Monday Night Countdown and said Ryan was a better coach than Bill Belichick (which is sort of like saying AskJeeves is a better search engine than Google — and yes, AskJeeves still exists, I highly recommend going). The pregame speech probably sounded a little something like this and hit all the key points of Ray Lewis speeches:
The hot news of the day, of course, is last night’s release of the first trailer for the next Marvel Studios project, Captain America: Civil War. Everybody is analyzing every single frame of the trailer to see what there is to see. Of course, one of the things that many have also noticed, is what isn’t there. We all know that the MCU’s Spider-Man will be making his bow in this film, but the web-head is nowhere to be seen in the trailer. Unless he is in there? Some eagle-eyed fans think they may have spotted the wall crawler after all. Check out the video and see if it’s him. Spoiler Alert: It’s not. What the frame-by-frame analyzing of the trailer has successfully revealed is, a guy in a red
