Witness Shares Details About The Attack On Lady Gaga’s Dog Walker

Now that all involved individuals — and dogs — have been reported safe, a witness shared new details about Lady Gaga's dog walker Ryan Fischer's injuries. The Gaga employee was shot as two of her French bulldogs were stolen on Feb. 24 and left critically wounded. On Saturday, Feb. 27, the witness, Carlos Pantoja, opened up about the harrowing ordeal in an interview with People, indicating he was worried Fischer might die from his gunshot wound as they waited for an ambulance. "We wanted to make sure he was still alive and still able to speak by the time the ambulance arrived," Pantoja told the publication. "At that time we see him fading out and I'm like, 'Hey, wake up.' I'm here touching his leg and trying to find a wallet or something to contact the family. We were making sure Ryan was ...

The San Jose Sharks’ team defense was bad last season. It’s even worse now

The Sharks just gave up a seven-spot to a team that had scored just eight goals in its previous five games. What’s going to happen when they face the Nathan MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche at home on Monday and Wednesday night? Or when the first place Vegas Golden Knights roll into town next weekend? The Sharks on Sunday took a look back at their 7-6 loss to the St. Louis Blues from the night before, and obviously know that something has to change soon. The Sharks have now allowed 17 goals in their last three games, and are about to play four games in six nights against two teams with Stanley Cup aspirations. “Our own mistakes are what’s going to cause problems,” Sharks winger Kevin Labanc said. “If we turn the puck over in the neutral zone, you know that McKinnon’s going to be coming

The Latest: US panel endorses 3rd vaccine option from J&J

By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — A U.S. advisory panel has endorsed the new one-dose COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson as a third option to bolster the national effort against the coronavirus pandemic. Advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention voted overwhelmingly to recommend the vaccine for adults 18 years old and up. The ruling followed emergency clearance of the vaccine by U.S. regulators a day earlier. Members of the group emphasized that all three vaccines now available in the U.S. are highly protective against the worst effects of the virus, including hospitalization and death. J&J plans to ship several million vaccine doses to states in the coming week, delivering a total of 20 million shots by the end of March. Health officials are eager to have

‘Tom & Jerry’ Is on HBO Max and It’s Still a Box-Office Hit

A year ago, if one film generated two-thirds of the weekend’s total business, that would mean it likely opened to over $75 million. It would be a sign of a dominant film expected to soar, and a cue for other studios to get out of the way. This weekend, the live-action/animated reboot “Tom & Jerry” hit those marks with $13.7 million, the second-highest opening since the pandemic shutdowns began. Here’s what makes that number truly impressive: As a Warner Bros. title, it’s also showing for free at home for HBO Max subscribers. (We don’t have any data on its streaming performance.) By comparison, “The Croods: A New Age” earned $14.3 million in its five-day opening weekend in late November, but it was a four-week theatrical exclusive. The most reasonable conclusion here isn’t that audience

Are novelists already writing about the Covid era? An author investigates

Summary List PlacementLast month, I turned in the copy edits for my fourth novel. The next week, when I opened up the rough outline for my fifth, I was confronted with this question: does Covid-19 exist in the new book I'm writing?  I dashed off a Tweet. Fellow contemporary fiction writers: How/are you incorporating Covid? I'm starting a new novel and considering the lockdown as a plot point, but concerned: a) I don't want to relive it for the next few years; b) no one is going to want to read about it once it's over. #amwriting — Julia Dahl (@juliadahl) January 25, 2021   Most said they were steering clear. Author Kate Reed Petty, whose debut novel "True Story" received rave reviews, admitted: "I'm not ready to process it." Laura McHugh, author of the award-winning "The W...

CPAC Speaker Angela Stanton King Promotes QAnon From Stage

NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP via Getty ImagesA speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory from the event’s main stage on Sunday, shortly before Donald Trump was scheduled to appear at the conservative movement’s premiere annual event. Former congressional candidate Angela Stanton King, who has frequently boosted the conspiracy theory on social media, called for an investigation into whether QAnon’s bizarre claims about a cabal of cannibal-pedophiles controlling the world and a mysterious figure named Q giving hidden messages to Trump supporters are real. “Let’s address it,” King said. “So we know in this election, there were some things going on in regards to the conspiracy theories with Q, right? And I think, me as a person, before I ever got...

Rockies’ Antonio Senzatela, who turned the corner in 2020, expects better in 2021

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — By many measures, Antonio Senzatela was Colorado’s best starting pitcher in 2020. And the Rockies, whose strength is their rotation, expect more of the same in 2021. “Next for me is to maintain what I did last year,” Senzatela said. “I’m getting better with my pitches. I’m getting more (confident). I’m getting deeper into games. I’ve put my mind to this year. I’ve got to throw a lot of innings, help my team to win, keep my body (healthy), keep working hard.” As manager Bud Black said, Senzatela, 26, “turned the corner” last season, rebounding from an ugly 2019 when he posted a 6.71 ERA across 124 2/3 innings. Senzatela’s 2020 measurables: 3.44 ERA, 1.214 WHIP, 2.2 walks per nine innings and a 153 ERA+. All of those statistics were club bests. And, oh yes, he pitched Col

Blackhawks notebook: Hawks rank 27th in faceoff percentage, but does it matter?

David Kampf has been the Blackhawks’ best faceoff-taker this season, but the team overall has struggled. | GettyPlus, the Hawks’ Reverse Retro sweaters finally debut and Collin Delia struggles in his first AHL start. Not all faceoffs are created equal. That is Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton’s view, at least, and it’s difficult to argue his point. “I would say a penalty-kill faceoff or a power-play faceoff or a last-minute faceoff are more important than neutral-zone faceoff,” Colliton said earlier this month. “[But] they’re...all scored the same way on the stat sheet. That’s something we can track. We can get better, for sure.” That comment arose because the Hawks rank 27th in the NHL with a 46.9% faceoff percentage this year, continuing a lengthy trend of faceoff troubles for the team:
