That list may be on the verge of growing exponentially. Last Thursday, the New York Times reported, 30 U.S. states’ attorneys general held a conference call to decide whether they should join together to launch a comprehensive, shared investigation of Google. The call was led by Richard Blumenthal, Connecticut’s AG and one of the first to investigate the search company. He told the Times that more than the 30 states on the call were interested but that some were unable to call in. A request for comment was sent to a Google spokesperson and to one of AG Blumenthal’s press officers. If we receive responses from either, we will post it here.

Toronto Film Festival Preview 25 Movies That Could Dominate Awards Season

first_imgNow that Telluride is over and Venice is winding down, it’s time to turn our attention to a huge film festival that re-screens films from other festivals while also premiering a host of interesting fare. It’s time for the Toronto International Film Festival, where much of the fall movie season is unveiled, where awards campaigns take flight and sputter out, and where, at least once, Blake Lively played a blind person. What awaits us at this year’s festival? Let’s take a look.The New StuffT.I.F.F. screens something like 400 films (and this is after an initiative to reduce the size of its slate), so this is by no means a comprehensive list of what’s on offer; some things are bound to get missed or overlooked. The first Thursday of the festival sees the premiere of On Chesil Beach, an adaptation of a slim, devastating little Ian McEwan novel, starring Saoirse Ronan, who will also have Telluride hit Lady Bird at the festival. Chesil Beach has a pretty small profile at the moment, but as Brooklyn proved two years ago, you should never underestimate a small period literary adaptation starring Saoirse Ronan.Charlie Hunnam stars in a remake of prison escape drama Papillon, co-starring Rami Malek. The director is a Danish guy who has mostly done documentaries, so who knows what to expect. But that cast has me intrigued. I’m similarly curious about Outside In, starring Edie Falco and Jay Duplass and directed by Lynn Shelton, whose Your Sister’s Sister and Laggies I love. Also, any chance to see Falco on the big screen is one we should all take. Advertisement Facebook Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Advertisement There’s no way I’m missing Molly’s Game, because why wouldn’t I be curious about a movie written and directed by Aaron Sorkin (making his directorial debut, no less) and starring Jessica Chastain as a woman running a high-class underground gambling ring? Could be a mess, could be brilliant. I’m hoping for the latter.I feel the same way about I, Tonya, the Tonya Harding biopic starring Margot Robbie as the scandal-plagued Olympic figure skater. The film is directed by Craig Gillespie, who’s had an erratic career, veering from twee indie (Lars and the Real Girl) to horror remake (the actually pretty good Fright Night), from a Disney sports dud (Million Dollar Arm) to a Disney rescue dud (The Finest Hours). So who knows what I, Tonya will be. Though, when I interviewed Allison Janney, who plays Harding’s mom in the film, earlier this year, she told me, “I get to do some of the cruelest, darkest comedy I’ve ever been a part of. I have high hopes for it.” That sounds promising, right?You know what else sounds promising? Kate Winslet and Idris Elba bonding, and possibly doing it, on top of a mountain. Which is just what happens in The Mountain Between Us, a plane-crash survival thriller that is such a weird choice for both actors, but what the hell. I must find out what this movie is all about—meaning, whether or not they do it on top of that mountain—so I will be first in line in Toronto.I’m a bit more reserved about Brie Larson’s directorial debut, Unicorn Store, a comedy about a wacky young artist who has to prove she’s worthy of taking care of an actual unicorn when a mysterious store owner played by Samuel L. Jackson offers her one. That sounds like . . . a lot. But a lot isn’t necessarily bad! Twitterlast_img read more

Commentary Will the real Lance Armstrong please stand up

LieStrong. That’s how you summarize the disappointment of something being too good to be true. That’s what you call a “cocktail, so to speak, [of] EPO … transfusions and testosterone” that allows you to win the hardest race in the world. That’s what you call “one big lie, that [was] repeated a lot of times.” And for now it seems, that’s what a once-special message of empowerment and inspiration has been reduced to amid the surging news of Lance Armstrong’s confession to using performance-enhancing drugs. On Monday, it was revealed that Armstrong finally admitted, in some capacity, to doping during an interview with Oprah Winfrey — it aired for the first time Thursday at 9 p.m. on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The confession was not the first stick in the spokes for Armstrong – he has been the subject of various doping allegations for more than a decade. In October, his seven consecutive Tour de France titles were vacated due to the allegations and he was banned from competition for life. In recent sports history, the prevalence of steroid-use has become basic sports knowledge. We’ve seen it many times – from the forfeiture of Marion Jones’ five Olympic medals to the discussion of whether to add an asterisk on Barry Bonds’ home run record. We’ve heard the “I was just trying to keep up” or “Everyone was doing it” excuses repeatedly, and many times we’ve sympathized and forgiven these transgressors. But for some reason, this time is different. This time I’m offended. We’re talking about an incredible story. This was a guy who, only 25 years old, was diagnosed with aggressive cancer that had spread extensively – including to his lungs and brain. Against all odds, he beat it. After starting an immensely popular foundation that supports cancer survivors, he did the impossible again by winning the Tour de France so many consecutive times that he needed two hands to show us. He was the good guy. The one you wanted to root for. You didn’t have to know a thing about cycling to love Armstrong and everything he stood for. The wristbands were cool too. So it stings to know with certainty that he cheated. But it doesn’t end there. As details continued to surface, we learned that Armstrong channeled the same intense desire to survive cancer into keeping his cheating hidden at all costs. We learned that he’s not the good guy we thought he was. It was all just a shameless case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The indications of various investigations and reports are disturbing. They assert that for years he viciously attacked and destroyed the reputations of friends and former-teammates who spoke out against him. He sued those with the courage to accuse him for libel and took their money when he won – knowing they had told the truth. He made suspicious monetary contributions to cycling regulation organizations, presumably to conceal his doping. As a captain, he led his team in a ruse that has been described by he U.S. Anti-Doping Agency as “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.” It’s playing out like a “Law and Order” episode, and it’s pretty clear that he’s the bad guy at the end. It was expected that his admission of guilt Thursday night would be limited, so as to minimize the legal repercussions of aggressively lying for over a decade. When asked by Oprah, “Did you ever take banned substances to enhance your cycling performances?” His answer was simple. “Yes.” So he did confess, but there were conflicting cues throughout; as if he had more disdain for getting caught than actually doing it. As the interview rolled on, it was the words Armstrong wouldn’t say – a truly sincere “I’m sorry” with the details to support it – that spoke louder than anything else. The tangential mentions of feeling justified and unfairly accused were other indications that he still hasn’t come to terms. We needed him to show true remorse, maybe not to the extent that guilty children do when they rub one leg behind the other and avoid eye contact, but close. Something meaningful. Anything. Instead, we watched Armstrong, with pursed lips, talk about a “flawed man” and a “bully” as if he were speaking about a bad-egg son. The personal ownership and responsibility were lacking – just as it has been for years. The interview was a pedal in the right direction, but there needed to be more. Maybe we’ll see that in the second part of the interview that airs Friday on the Oprah Winfrey Network. There’s no doubt in my mind that Armstrong is a phenomenal athlete. Perhaps he was the greatest cyclist of all time and the most dominant we’ve ever seen an athlete be in their sport. But we’ll never know because he cheated. It’s that simple. But it doesn’t seem that even Armstrong, a self-described “fierce competitor,” believes that he was the best. “Do you think it’s humanly possible to win the Tour de France, without doping, seven times in a row?” asked Oprah. “Not in my opinion,” he responded. So maybe we shouldn’t believe it either. Armstrong has a long race to redemption, and whether he finishes is something that remains to be seen. Until then, in my mind, there’s an important modification that needs to be made because it wasn’t a miracle – much less one that happened seven times: LiveStrong*. read more

Djibril Cissé Zidane tried to convince me to join Real Madrid

first_imgFormer Liverpool striker Djibril Cissé has revealed that Zinedine Zidane tried to convince him to join Real Madrid in 2002Cissé rose to prominence at French club AJ Auxerre and he twice finished top of the Ligue 1 scoring charts in his six seasons of senior level football at the club.After scoring 70 times in 128 games for Auxerre, a £16m deal was announced for Cisse by Liverpool in 2004.But the Frenchman claims that the Reds were not the only club interested in him at the time.“In my final year at Auxerre, I had already signed a pre-contract with Liverpool. And in 2002, during the Japan & South Korea World Cup, I got settled in my room with Sylvain (Wiltord),” he told RMC Sport.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“I am in my room all alone at this point, and I hear a knock on the door. It is Zizou (Zidane) and I am like ‘oh no, what have I done, I am 20, I have only just arrived, why me.’ He says sit down I need to speak with you.“Zizou says that at Real Madrid we are interested in you, that we want you to come and play for us. I look at him, I say honestly, I don’t know how to say no to you, but I have already signed a pre-contract… and even in training (at Real Madrid) I wouldn’t be good enough to be in the squad, look who was playing then.“I thought it was impossible if I joined Real Madrid, it would stop my progress. Van Nistelrooy was still there. I didn’t think it was the right club for me. I signed for Liverpool. People speculated a lot and said I could have joined a better club.”Cisse managed 24 goals in 79 games for Liverpool and scored a spot-kick in a penalty shoot-out from the club’s famous comeback win against AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final.Cisse now plays for Italian Serie D side Vicenza.last_img read more
