Saturday Night Live recap: Liev Schreiber leads a directionless post-midterms episode

https://youtu.be/EGy-xpK-1mw

And so it came time to bid farewell to Jeff Sessions. In the wake of the attorney general’s dismissal this week, Kate McKinnon pulled out her elf-like impression of the Southern politician for the last time. Considering the most famous parts of Sessions’ reign included justifying the imprisonment of thousands of children in concentration camps, rolling back civil rights protections, and serving as the overall “intellectual godfather” of the Trump administration’s nationalist politics, there weren’t many jokes to be wrung from his tenure.

The climax of the sketch involved McKinnon’s Sessions singing Adele’s “Someone Like You” to a framed photo of Alec Baldwin’s Trump, alongside flashbacks to many prior SNL skits that featured them together. It was reminiscent of the post-election show in 2016, when McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton spent the cold open singing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” It sure seems like, when a political event happens and SNL doesn’t quite know how to make it funny, their last resort is to put McKinnon out there and have her cover a pop song as one of her goofy characters. It always feels a little empty.

The funniest bit was probably the last-minute arrival of Robert De Niro’s Robert Mueller, who thanked Sessions for helping his investigation “more than you’ll ever know.” He then made an explicit Harry Potter reference, offering Sessions “piece of toilet paper from the bottom of Mr. Trump’s shoe” to grant his freedom house-elf style. It’s hard to imagine a goofier cultural mashup than Robert De Niro saying “you know how in Harry Potter when…” so props for that.

#2 Carmelo Anthony ?Melo finally got OKC that win. (as a Rocket?)• 1/11 shooting• 0 assists• -22 while on the court

Rockets’ Carmelo Anthony ruled out again with illness

Houston Rockets forward Carmelo Anthony didn’t play in Saturday’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs, and the veteran has also been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Indiana Pacers.

While the Rockets are listing him out with an illness, reports came out Saturday night saying Anthony and the team have had discussions about his future with the team, which has led to speculation about the real reason behind his absences. Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni and general manager Daryl Morey have not given any comment on the situation.

Anthony has had a real rough go of it with the Rockets, as has the entire team after they fell just a win shy of the NBA Finals last season. Houston dropped to 4-7 with its 96-89 loss to San Antonio.

Anthony is averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds while shooting just 40.5 percent overall and 32.8 percent from 3. He has only five assists on the season and shot 1-of-11 in his return to Oklahoma City on Thursday night.

Melo’s defense has also been an issue, as predicted by many. The Rockets have allowed 111.0 points per 100 possessions with him on the court, compared to 100.6 with him on the bench, per NBA.com.

With Eric Gordon returning from injury and rookie Gary Clark showing signs of being a competent rotation player, there may not be as many minutes available for Anthony if he continues to be as ineffective as he has been. Though, to be fair to Melo, he is far from the only issue on this disappointing team.

Louisville fires head coach Bobby Petrino after 2-8 start to season

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville’s seven-game skid was bad enough. Worse were the large margins of defeat and opponents’ apparent ease in lighting up the scoreboard.

That combination spelled the end of coach Bobby Petrino’s second chapter with the Cardinals.

Louisville fired Petrino on Sunday morning with two games left in a spiraling season that includes five blowout losses in which the Cardinals allowed at least 50 points.

The school announced Petrino’s dismissal with a statement from athletic director Vince Tyra, who wasn’t confident the coach could turn things around next season. He said a new head coach would be chosen soon to restore the program to national prominence.

The AD said at a news conference later that he considered a number of factors in Petrino’s status, but noted that the three games since Louisville’s bye showed no progress.

“It was clear the players weren’t responding,” he said. “The coaches’ and the players’ efforts have to go in the right direction, but I didn’t feel it was going that way.”

Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm, a former Louisville quarterback who later became an assistant under Petrino, has frequently been mentioned as the top candidate to replace him. Tyra said he had “a list in mind” but didn’t want to interfere with potential candidates with the season still in progress.

For now, second-year safeties coach Lorenzo Ward, 51, would coach Louisville on an interim basis.

Also let go were quarterbacks coach Nick Petrino, the coach’s son; linebackers coach Ryan Beard and defensive line coach L.D. Scott, Petrino’s sons-in-law; and fifth-year director of football operations Andy Wagner.

Louisville (2-8) lost 54-23 at No. 12 Syracuse on Friday night, dropping to 0-7 in Atlantic Coast Conference play.

Petrino, 57, departs with a 77-35 mark in two stints with Louisville, including 36-26 since returning in 2014. His exit will be expensive for Louisville, which owes him $14 million under terms of his contract extension signed in April 2016. Tyra said Petrino would receive the full buyout.

The school was left with little choice but to release Petrino with Louisville struggling and sections of empty seats at Cardinal Stadium recently after opening a new north end section in a $63 million renovation project.

Louisville’s stunning freefall comes a season after 2016 Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson capped one of the program’s most remarkable periods under the offense-minded Petrino. Besides becoming the school’s first Heisman winner, Jackson had the program as high as No. 3 in The Associated Press Top 25 and within reach of the College Football Playoff at No. 5 that November.

But other than sharing the 2016 Atlantic Division title with Clemson, Louisville wasn’t a consistent ACC contender after leaving the Big East.

This season, the Cardinals have failed to beat a Power Five school and needed second-half rallies to beat FCS Indiana State and Western Kentucky.

An offensive falloff was expected following the departure of the dynamic Jackson, who broke numerous school and conference records before being selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of last spring’s NFL Draft.

However, Jackson’s exit ended up revealing a host of deficiencies as Louisville struggled to score. The Cardinals rank at or near the bottom of several ACC offensive categories and Petrino has shuffled quarterbacks Jawon Pass and Malik Cunningham.

Their defensive weaknesses have been more glaring and left them looking up at the rest of the ACC statistically. The Cardinals have been outscored 291-125 in that span, including a 77-16 thumping at No. 2 Clemson on Nov. 3.

Petrino remained hopeful of improvement, but another lopsided loss ended with him being shown the door.

The Montana native is 119-56 overall in a college career that included stops at Arkansas and WKU. He also coached 13 games with the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons in 2007. His career has included a lot of wins and some controversy and hard feelings left behind.

He was 31-9 with Louisville from 2003-06, taking the Cardinals to the Orange Bowl, while also constantly coming up as a candidate for other jobs. He left college for the Falcons and lasted less than a season before taking the Arkansas job.

That ended with embarrassment. He was fired after getting into a motorcycle accident, which exposed an extra-marital affair with an athletic department employee and Petrino’s lies to his boss.

Petrino resurfaced at WKU for the 2103 season before Louisville gave him another chance. Then-athletic director Tom Jurich re-hired Petrino as the program transitioned from the Big East to the ACC.

But Jurich is gone as part of the fallout from a series of scandals involving the men’s basketball program that also felled Hall of Fame coach Rick Pitino.

Petrino is now out as well, leaving Tyra to make his second major coaching hire after basketball coach Chris Mack in March. In the meantime, Ward must close the season on a high note that proved elusive for Petrino and the Cardinals.

“Talent-wise, we’ve got enough to win with,” Tyra said. “There’s a lot to build on in terms of skill and I’m excited about that part of it. But we’ve got to draw it out of them and teach them what it’s like to play their (butt) off in a Cardinal uniform.”

Dynasties, episode 1 review: David Attenborough's new series is an extraordinary tale of nature’s power politics

    

It lifts the heart to see Sir David Attenborough, now 92, speeding across the dusty plains of Africa in a bone-jangling old Jeep, doing a piece to camera with no more effort than if he were chatting from a comfy armchair at home. Dynasties (BBC One) began with everyone’s favourite naturalist bouncing across the savannah, outlining the four-year filming schedule and vast distances travelled for this new series exploring “one of the most powerful forces in nature – family”. Could another epic wildlife extravaganza be in prospect?

Well, no, not even close. Though it was still a fabulous piece of wildlife film-making. The trouble was it  didn’t seem to have much to do with family. I wouldn’t have spotted the theme if it hadn’t been for Attenborough’s introduction. This opener was a one-off tale of power-politics and the fight for kingship  in a troop of chimpanzees living in  the hottest and driest part of Senegal.

The film, more Natural World in scale and ambition than Planet Earth, concentrated on the varying fortunes of just one chimpanzee, the group leader, a bristling alpha-male known as David (though Donald might have served better). David’s only concern  in life was staying on top; the film’  sole focus was on his relationship with the other males, and the constant, often shockingly violent battle he faced to maintain the right to mate with the females, ahead of them.

All of which was entrancing and exceptionally well filmed. The  scenes in which a gang of sexually frustrated rival males attacked their leader and almost killed him were extraordinary; as was his recovery. David’s recourse to “political” networking – building alliances  with other, older males when he needed friends – was absolutely fascinating. Viewers of a philosophical bent will have found much to ponder in how strikingly narrow the gap between a great deal of chimpanzee and human behaviour seems to be.

But, again, how it fed into the  larger theme of family was never elucidated. Little or no mention  was made of David’s blood  relationship to other group members, or theirs to one another. The social structures and other hierarchies within the group, while clearly complex, also went entirely unexplored. Undoubtedly David  was a chimp who spent a great deal  of time and effort investing in his bloodline. But as to family bonds, the genetics were about as far as it went.

Hello Again and Thanks for reading it is I David "Top40" Ellenberger with an update on the status of my lawsuit against Alphabet inc case # 4:20-CV-04877-SVK  and the website and life in general. By now if you regularly visit InternetTop40.com you may have read this section "author info" or Bio. So I am adding to it with more bio and more info. I originally liked the idea of voting on the internet 20-25 years ago when I first got online with WebTV (does anyone remember that?). The technology at that time was not advanced enough to easily be able to vote online or watch videos or much else for that matter but I was hooked and look at what we can do now with videos, IOT, and everything else, but I digress. I started InternetTop40.com about 5 years ago and the user base has been going up steadily ever since. I wanted to be another Facebook, with music and voting and that is all coming together slowly but surely. BTW if you want to help or have any interest please feel free to email me anytime.  Now in my previous Author Info or bio page I made it clear or at least I thought I made it clear, I am personally suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud. I have evidence to prove they are not counting all the pageviews, among other things and defrauding myself and probably millions of other website owners and content creators out of Billions of dollars. So if I wasn't clear or you didn't know it's true I am suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud the case was recently moved from my state of Kentucky to N. California to make it easier for Alphabet inc. to steam roll me or so they think. Needless to say if you are interested and I hope you are you can look the case up online under my name "David Russell Ellenberger" or the case # which is 4:20-CV-04877-SVK.

Now, I want to make it clear to you and everyone that I am not suing Alphabet inc. aka Google for fraud just because I want a million dollars for nothing. I am suing Google for fraud because I think they are committing  a serious crime with worldwide and societal ramifications, it is a  very serious problem.  I am suing Google for fraud because to put it simply the analytics numbers don't add up at least not in my favor or yours, there is something very fishy going on with the Google analytics numbers. Of course Google has an excuse for every one of them but I have reasons and the actual numbers and they don't add up, more about the numbers later. Companies like Google are making Billions of dollars a year in profits telling us data is the most valuable thing and misleading us and misdirecting the media and the world every chance they can.  Now data is valuable and they are making billions in profits seemingly like magic but there is no magic to it just corruption and lies. One thing Alphabet inc. aka Google is really making their money from and that is advertising dollars and they are putting all of this advertising on the websites other people have created. Websites that I have created and  websites you have created and websites millions of others around the world have created websites or content. For example Just writing a text is creating content and that's where Google puts the billions in advertising they receive and keeping most of it for themselves. Yes content others have created and yet somehow they are keeping almost all of these billions for themselves and not distributing it equitably to the real workers the true content creators who actually deserve the advertising monies. Google has made it's billions on the backs of you and me. Think about that for a minute, how can they continue to justify this? They Can't, it has to change.

For example if I were to prevail in the current lawsuit just half of the monies or $20 billion put into a basic account and compounded at 5% annually we could realistically employ over 800,000 people at $24,000 a year, indefinitely.  Sounds unbelievable but its true and if we only employed 400,000 people we could pay them $48,000 a year indefinitely. Its all true. Its simply a matter of having the money and the will to do it. Now is 400,000 people a lot well yes it would be more employees than almost any other company in the world and more than half the population of the entire city of Louisville, Ky.

I David Russell Ellenberger through my website InternetTop40.com am suing Google to try to help right a wrong. A wrong committed by Google that has simply gotten out of hand. Most people may think they can't do anything about it. Nothing can stop Google, the politicians don't care they use all of Googles data to further their own campaigns and line their own pockets while the rest of us keep on creating the content for Google, nothing can be done, this however is not the case, we can do something. The politicians and Alphabet inc. aka Google have done nothing to help society at large other than organize it so they can keep more money in secret and pay off all their buddies with their fraudulently obtained money. It's gotten so bad that the politicians and others in control won't even talk about it, they ignore it and hope it goes away, they won't even try to stop google because it is helping them too much and maybe they are scared of Google or who knows what they may be thinking. But it looks like fraud and it's coming to an end.

I'm telling you we can do something and I David Russell Ellenberger an average citizen Content Creator am saying to you, I'm not scared of Google because I have nothing left to loose.  I David Russell Ellenberger am telling you there is something you too can do, if nothing else, tell all your friends to come to InternetTop40.com aka IT40, believe these words and Create your Content. Further I promise to you and all who read this if I do prevail in my lawsuit against Alphabet Inc. I will use half of any monies I may receive to pay "content creators" a living wage. I pledge to anyone who is reading this, I will use half of any monies I may receive to help those who really do want to work on the internet and create content and tell us what they think. I will use half of any money so you can Get Paid, I want you to get paid for the content you create and get paid everyday and Get Paid to Vote create data and to be able to do this work online and from your home or anywhere in the world you care to be. Because in the words of an ancient scholar Y-O-U are the business Y-O-U are creating all the data, Y-O-U are the content creators and Y-O-U are all that matters.

Now the main thing I want you to take away form this and to know, Alphabet inc. is and has been committing fraud against you, me and everyone who uses the internet. I don't think Google started out to defraud the world it has just degenerated into this endless morass of corruption and fraud and no one seems to care, Well I care and I know you care too.  Sadly Google has been doing this with impunity for years and it is only getting worse. Please don't let them fool you with their lies and obfuscation. Do some research create some content build a website and research the analytics numbers you will find I am right. Google owes you, me and everyone online thousands if not 10's of thousands of dollars for all the data and advertising dollars they have co-opted from you and the rest of the world. So join with me don't use any Google products or file your own lawsuit in federal court against Alphabet inc. I will be glad to help you any way I can and show you how to do it if need be. It will take a sincere effort on your part but it will definitely help your self esteem, society and the world.

Now that's about all I have to say on this subject for now.  I will tell you this if you want more information or you have questions or comments for me, my email is [email protected] Thank you for reading looking and listening and believing in InternetTop40.com Please tell all your friends about us and don't forget to vote Thumbs up or down and refresh your page when your done. oh yeah and those funny old men running for president vote on one of them too or not. One last Thing, I need all the help I can get I am only 1 person but together and with todays technology we can move mountains and reframe society and our world the way we want it to be. Thank you ttyl
