Britney Spears is apparently “rolling her eyes” at her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, who just spoke out on national television about their rift. “Britney has been deeply hurt by her family, and this isn’t helping matters,” a source told Page Six about the 30-year-old’s recent appearance on ABC. “Sure, Jamie Lynn has a book to sell, but things don’t have to be so one-sided.” The Things I Should Have Said author spoke to network star Juju Chang in a sit-down that aired in part on Wednesday’s Good Morning America, with an extended cut being shown later that evening on Nightline.

The Texans fired David Culley on Thursday, ending what may have been one of the most eyebrow-raising, start-to-finish charades in recent NFL history. Culley, the 66-year-old longtime assistant, was brought down to Houston and tasked with coaching one of the worst rosters from top to bottom in modern times, did it better than anyone expected and lost his job after taking the AFC’s No. 1 seed to the brink in the season finale.

Geneva and the accountability SLAP | Daily FT

Published by
Daily Financial Times

UN Human Rights High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet For a people in the throes of multiple existential crises, Geneva no longer seems as urgently gripping nor evocative of either patriotic protestation or demands for justice and reparation. War crimes, accountability and the like seems like yesterday’s news for a nation standing in queues for its staples. While food insecurity, breakdown in the provision of gas and electricity and US dollar-related anxieties preoccupy the masses, there’s nothing like the same interest with which the sessions of the UN Human Rights Council are usually greeted. … Read More “Geneva and the accountability SLAP | Daily FT”

David Murphy: Eagles don’t need to beat Tom Brady and the Bucs to be wild-card winners

Published by
The Philadelphia Inquirer

PHILADELPHIA — The Eagles are the NFL’s weirdos. Might as well accept it now. You’ll be hearing it all week. They are not a playoff team as much as they are a curiosity. If 2017 was the year of the underdog, 2022 is the year of the oddball. Maybe you don’t think that sounds so bad. Maybe you haven’t pictured Joe Buck saying it. Like I said: breathe. Besides, they aren’t wrong. Buck, Troy Aikman, the folks on ESPN, everybody who has ever spent a sleepless night trying to figure out a name for their podcast — nobody knows what to make of this team. Heck, neither do we. Half the fan base wanted t… Read More “David Murphy: Eagles don’t need to beat Tom Brady and the Bucs to be wild-card winners”
