Striking Hollywood writers reach tentative deal with studios

WGA strike updateHollywood's writers union reached a preliminary labor agreement with major studios on Sunday, a deal expected to end one of two strikes that have halted most film and television production and cost the California economy billions.

The three-year contract still must be approved by leadership of the Writers Guild of America (WGA,) as well as union members, before it can take effect.

The WGA, which represents 11,500 film and television writers, described the deal as "exceptional" with "meaningful gains and protections for writers."


Trump argues First Amendment protects him from ‘insurrection’ cases aimed at keeping him off ballot

Trump trumpingAttorneys for former President Donald Trump argue that an attempt to bar him from the 2024 ballot under a rarely used “insurrection” clause of the Constitution should be dismissed as a violation of his freedom of speech.

The lawyers made the argument in a filing posted Monday by a Colorado court in one of the most significant of a series of challenges to Trump’s candidacy under the Civil War-era clause in the 14th Amendment. The challenges rest on Trump’s attempts to overturn his 2020 loss to Democrat Joe Biden and his role leading up to the violent Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

“At no time do Petitioners argue that President Trump did anything other than engage in either speaking or refusing to speak for their argument that he engaged in the purported insurrection,” wrote attorney Geoffrey Blue.

TVNL Comment:  Keep going till you get to the 14th Amendment, Donald.  You can be kept off the ballot for supporting an insurrection.  Oh, never mind...the words have more than one syllable.



Perdue Farms and Tyson Foods under federal inquiry over reports of illegal child labor

Tyson and Perdue probed for child labor

The Labor Department is investigating Perdue Farms and Tyson Foods — two of the biggest poultry producers in the U.S. — after reports that migrant children as young as 13 have been working overnight shifts to clean the companies' plants.

The department told NPR that its Wage and Hour Division is looking into the matter and could not provide additional details.

The inquiry comes after The New York Times Magazine published last week a harrowing account of a 14-year-old boy, Marcos Cux, whose arm was nearly torn off while working at a Perdue slaughterhouse on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

According to the Times, Cux was hired by one of Perdue's contractors tasked with cleaning operations. He and other middle and high school-aged children made up about a third of the overnight shifts at the plant — handling acid and pressure hoses to wash away blood and meat scraps from industrial machines.


FDNY deaths from 9/11-related illnesses now equal the number killed on Sept. 11

FDNY deaths from 9/11 related illness equal deaths on the day

In the 22 years that have passed since Sept. 11, 2001, just as many New York Fire Department employees have died from World Trade Center-related illnesses as died on the day at ground zero, the department says.

Over the weekend, the FDNY announced the deaths of EMT Hilda Vannata and retired firefighter Robert Fulco, bringing the total number of deaths from World Trade Center-related illnesses to 343.

The deaths of Fulco and Vannta mark a "somber, remarkable milestone," said FDNY Commissioner Laura Kavanagh in a statement Saturday.


Third person charged in fentanyl-exposure death of 1-year-old at Bronx daycare center

Third person charged in fentanyl death in day care

A third person has been charged in the death of a one-year-old child who was exposed to fentanyl along with three other children at a Bronx daycare center, officials announced Monday.

The case sparked national outcry after one-year-old Nicholas Dominici died earlier this month following exposure to fentanyl at the Divino Niño daycare center. Three other children, all under the age of three, were hospitalized with serious injuries following what appeared to be the effects of fentanyl poisoning, officials said.

Law enforcement officials found large quantities of fentanyl and other drugs in hidden floor compartments and atop children’s play mats at Divino Niño, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. Also found were drug packaging materials, such as glassine envelopes stamped in red with “RED DAWN.”


Ukraine says it killed top Russian admiral in Crimea missile attack

Russian Admiral Viktar Sokolov

The commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, Admiral Viktor Sokolov, died in Ukraine’s barrage on occupied Crimea last week, Kyiv said Monday.

“After the defeat of the headquarters of the Russian armed forces, 34 officers died, including the commander of the Russian armed forces. Another 105 occupiers were wounded. The headquarters building cannot be restored,” Ukraine’s special operations forces said Monday.

In an initial statement after the attack, the Russian defense ministry said it had shot down five incoming missiles and only one serviceman was killed, though the fleet’s headquarters were damaged.

Judge to examine alleged attorney conflicts of interest in Mar-a-Lago case

Judge Aileen CannonJudge Aileen Cannon agreed Monday to a Justice Department (DOJ) request to hold hearings to examine potential conflicts of interest of two attorneys representing former President Trump’s co-defendants in the Mar-a-Lago case.

The move comes after the DOJ warned that the two attorneys are representing other clients who may be called as witnesses against Walt Nauta, Trump’s valet who moved boxes in and out of a storage room, and Carlos De Oliveira, the Mar-a-Lago property manager who assisted him.


Far-right Marjorie Taylor Greene ridiculed for Yom Kippur error

Greene gets more and more idiotic

Far-right Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has drawn ridicule for using an image of a Hanukah menorah in an attempt to commemorate the unrelated Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.

The derision the Georgia representative brought upon herself comes after she was previously criticized for perpetuating antisemitic conspiracy theories.

Green on Sunday posted a message on X – previously known as Twitter – on Sunday wishing observers a meaningful fast for Monday’s observation of Yom Kippur. She tried to add a traditional Yom Kippur greeting but misspelled it: “Gamar Chasima Tova!”

The backlash soon ensued.
