Sylvester Stallone confirms he’s alive, ‘still punching’ following death rumors

Breaking News
Social media posts mourning Sylvester Stallone were quickly disputed Monday morning by the actor who is alive and “still punching.” Fans shared “rest in peace” graphics mourning the Rocky actor even after he spoke out on Twitter and Instagram about the hoax. “Please ignore this stupidity,” Stallone, 71, tweeted. “Alive and well and happy and healthy… Still punching!” Please ignore this stupidity… Alive and well and happy and healthy… Still punching! https://t.co/sgRhOguHhs — Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) February 19, 2018 The rumor appears to have started with a post on Facebook. His younger brother Frank Stallone also disputed the story on Twitter. “Rumors that my brother is dead are false,” he said. “What

Trump thinks he’s Honest Abe, but Lincoln warned us about demagogues like him

Politics
President Donald Trump loves to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln. Honest Abe would disagree. Just last month, at a gathering of GOP lawmakers, Trump placed himself on Mount Rushmore again, asserting that Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) “actually once said I’m the greatest president in the history of our country. I said, does that include Lincoln and Washington? He said yes.” Seriously. Last January, Trump even chose to be sworn in on  the same bible Honest Abe used because he was “inspired by Lincoln’s words.” On Presidents’ Day, though, it’s worth remembering Lincoln’s words, which make clear that Trump is the anti-Lincoln (and anti-Washington). He is the demagogue that not only the Founding Fathers like Alexander Hamilton warned us about, but that Lincoln himself warned us about as

Breaking News
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Former presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is running for a Utah Senate seat, officially launching his political comeback attempt Friday by praising his adopted home state as a model for an acrimonious national government in Washington. Having been one of the Republican Party’s fiercest internal critics of President Donald Trump, Romney didn’t mention the administration or Trump himself in a campaign announcement posted online. The closest allusion to Trump was Romney noting that Utah “welcomes legal immigrants from around the world,” while “Washington sends immigrants a message of exclusion.” In an interview Friday with The Associated Press, Romney said he will continue to speak out when he takes exception to something the president says or does. “I call them like I see

Ousmane Who? Semedo shows exactly why he’s Alves’ heir apparent

Sports
Let’s get one thing clear from the get-go: Ousmane Dembele is one of the most talented players in world football, and this writer’s first-choice signing to replace Neymar when the Brazilian announced his departure. The young Frenchman playing alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez is a tantalizing prospect, one which, when Dembele adapts to his new teammates, will bear great fruit for Ernesto Valverde. The fact is, though, that against Juventus FC there was another player, also signed this summer, who impressed in a position where Barca have had a lot of trouble over the past couple of seasons. Nelson Semedo was bought and presented at Barcelona without too much fanfare and early rumours surrounding the Portuguese full-back stated that he was ‘worse than Douglas’. I...
