WATCH NICOLAS CAGE EXPLAIN THE HILARIOUS ‘HISTORY OF SWEAR WORDS’

Nicolas Cage hosts History of Swear Words, a pointedly profane new six-episode Netflix series that explores the origins, pop culture-usage, science, and cultural impact of curse words through interviews with experts in etymology, pop culture, historians, and entertainers. The cheeky limited series delves deep into the origins of such beloved curse words as “F**k”, “Sh*t”, “B*tch”, “D**k”, “Pu**y”, and “Damn”.

The Trump wing just keeps sinking deeper into conspiracy theories

Did you know that Joe Biden is probably going to resign as president sometime in the next month? Maybe, specifically, on August 13? While that’s totally ridiculous — Biden isn’t resigning and, in fact, all signs point to him running for a second term in 2024 — talk of Biden resigning has taken off among some of former President Donald Trump’s most prominent supporters of late.

Here’s MyPillow founder Mike Lindell in an interview Monday with none other than Steve Bannon:

Gesicki, M. – Mia (TE)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Mike Gesicki, TE, Miami Dolphins (6/23) Advice: Mike Gesicki should continue to be the No. 1 tight end in Miami this season, and as such, he remains a starting Fantasy tight end in all leagues. He’s worth drafting with a late-round pick in all formats. Gesicki has proven himself over the past two seasons, averaging 8.5 PPR points in 2019 and 10.3 PPR points in 2020. But the Dolphins added Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle this offseason, and that should impact Gesicki in a negative way. Now, the good news is Gesicki proved to have a decent rapport with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Gesicki had three games with at least 23 PPR points last season, and two of them came with Tagovailoa under center. As long as Gesicki remains the starting tight end for the Dolphins he should continue to be a No. 1 Fantasy option coming into the year, and he could once again finish as a top-10 player at his position.

CHARLOTTE MCKINNEY SHARES SULTRY PHOTO SHOOT AND TIPS ON STAYING SANE DURING LOCKDOWN

Charlotte McKinney needs to move. There’s nothing that will restrict movement like doing errands or going to the gym more than the novel coronavirus pandemic. The famous and unknown, beautiful and not-so-beautiful have all found themselves in the same boat: Stuck at home, venturing out only for groceries—and you can even get those delivered in many places—and perhaps going stir-crazy.

SUPER NINTENDO WORLD AT UNIVERSAL STUDIOS JAPAN LOOKS ABSOLUTELY INSANE

There’s no way 2021 can be anything but an improvement over 2020, right?

Well, that remains to be seen, but if you’re into Nintendo and looking forward to a trip to Japan, here’s some good news: According to Yahoo News, the “Universal Studios Japan theme park in Osaka will welcome its long-awaited Nintendo-themed area, which includes a Mario Kart ride, next year.”

A Conversation with Filmmaker Adam Curtis on Power, Technology and How Ideas Get Into People’s Heads

The British filmmaker Adam Curtis may work for the BBC, a bastion of the British elite, but over a decades-long career, he has cemented himself as a cult favorite.

He is best known as the pioneer of a radical and unique style of filmmaking, combining reels of unseen archive footage, evocative music, and winding narratives to tell sweeping stories of 20th and 21st century history that challenge the conventional wisdom. “I’ve never thought of myself as a documentary maker,” he says. “I’m a journalist.”

Riding Weed, Weapons and Water to the Florida Governor’s Mansion

While Fried may not yet be a household name like the former South Carolina governor and presumptive 2024 GOP presidential candidate, she still has her eyes on an office higher than her current one as Florida’s commissioner of agriculture. And she is using her post to needle the man who currently holds the job many think she wants, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Crowder, J. – NYJ (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Jamison Crowder, WR, New York Jets (6/23) Advice: At the time of publication, Jamison Crowder remains with the Jets, but there’s a chance he could be released or traded prior to training camp because his cap charge is a team-high $11.4 million, including a non-guaranteed $10 million base salary. The Jets also drafted his potential replacement in rookie receiver Elijah Moore, as well as adding Corey Davis and Keelan Cole this offseason. Now, if Crowder remains in New York, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him still be the Jets’ top slot receiver — and top receiver overall, like he was in 2020 despite appearing in just 12 games. He scored at least 11 PPR points in seven of those outings, and he’s a better Fantasy option in PPR. We’ll see how Crowder does with new quarterback Zach Wilson, but Crowder should be worth drafting with a mid-round pick in PPR and a late-round selection in non-PPR leagues. And even if Crowder changes teams, his Fantasy value will likely be the same given his ability to be one of the top slot receivers in the NFL over the past two seasons. (CBSSports.com)

Most Major Economies Are Shrinking. Not China’s.

The Chinese economy rose 2.3 percent last year, the country’s National Bureau of Statistics announced on Monday in Beijing. By contrast, the United States, Japan and many nations in Europe are expected to have suffered steep falls in economic output.

Najee Harris Highlights

Alabama RB Najee Harris
Senior 6’2 230 lbs

During his recruitment, Alabama RB Najee Harris was viewed as the LeBron James of high school football. He was already built like a grown man at a young age. He was clearly too good for his competition.

It took some time, but it’s clear that Najee Harris is ready for the NFL. He dominated college defenses all season & could be the only RB drafted in the 1st round. While his teammate DeVonta Smith was deserving of the Heisman, Harris deserved to at least be named a finalist.

Harris is a strong tough runner who has proven that he can be effective in the pass game, which is valuable in today’s football.

NANCY PELOSI DROP-KICKS JIM JORDAN’S ELECTION-DENYING ASS FROM 1/6 INVESTIGATION COMMITTEE

Ever since Donald Trump incited a mob to lay siege on the U.S. Capitol in the hopes of blocking Joe Biden from becoming president, Republicans have pulled all manner of bullshit out of their asses in a sad attempt to explain why the failed insurrection wasn’t really that bad. Senator Ron Johnson has suggested he never feared for his life because the rioters were white. Rep. Paul Gosar has called the individuals who violently broke into the Capitol “peaceful patriots” and said the Department of Justice is “harassing“ them. Rep. Andrew Clyde has boldly and insanely claimed that “There was no insurrection and to call it an insurrection, in my opinion, is a bold-faced lie. Watching the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchions and ropes taking videos and pictures…if you didn’t know the TV footage was a video from January the 6th, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.”

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz is expected to speak at a “Women for America First” gala in the Sunshine State this Friday as he remains under fire over allegations that he paid for sex with an underage girl.
Gaetz, who vehemently denies the shocking allegations, will be the keynote speaker at the “Save America Summit,” which will take place at former President Donald Trump’s golf club in Doral this week, the Women for America First group said Tuesday.

Stafford, M. – LAR (QB)

Rams general manager Les Snead said he envisions Matthew Stafford quarterbacking the team for five to eight years. (6/23) Advice: Eight years in LA would mean Stafford, 33, would lead the Rams offense into his 40s. “Based on his age, you can legitimately think five to seven, eight years if you look at what Drew (Brees) has done,” Snead said. “With quarterbacks of his pedigree, a lot of those guys have played into their late 30s, for sure. So that was definitely the vision with (Stafford).” The Rams inherited Stafford’s two-year, $43 million deal when they acquired him from Detroit in January. We could see Stafford sign an extension with the Rams before he plays a regular season snap for the team. (TheAthletic.com)

A National Strategy for the “New Normal” of Life With COVID

After previous infectious disease threats, the US quickly forgot and failed to institute necessary reforms. That pattern must change with the COVID-19 pandemic. Without a strategic plan for the “new normal” with endemic COVID-19, more people in the US will unnecessarily experience morbidity and mortality, health inequities will widen, and trillions will be lost from the US economy. This time, the nation must learn and prepare effectively for the future.

Cook, D. – Min (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Dalvin Cook, RB, Minnesota Vikings (6/23) Advice: Cook reinforced last year that he is one of the truly elite backs in the game and should be drafted with a top-five pick in all formats. Cook’s 16-game pace over the past two seasons puts him at 2,041 yards from scrimmage, 55 receptions and 17 touchdowns. The only problem is that Cook has never actually played 16 games in an NFL season. if he’s able to stay healthy for 17 games in 2021 he could legitimately challenge Christian McCaffrey for No. 1 overall. If you draft Cook in the first round, it may be a good idea to take Alexander Mattison in Round 10 or 11. (CBSSports.com)

Moss, Z. – Buf (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Zack Moss, RB, Buffalo Bills (6/23) Advice: Zack Moss is expected to be fine after having ankle surgery in January, and he should be ready for training camp. He will be part of a crowded backfield in Buffalo this season with Devin Singletary and Matt Breida, and Moss should be considered just a reserve Fantasy option in most leagues. He is only worth drafting with a mid-round pick at best in most formats. Training camp will likely determine if Moss starts, but the Bills will rely on all three running backs when healthy. In ranking Buffalo’s backfield, plan on drafting Moss first, then Singletary and then Breida. But this isn’t the ideal situation for these guys since Buffalo is a high-volume passing attack with a quarterback in Josh Allen who also uses his legs. Moss struggled as a rookie in 2020 and only scored more than nine PPR points four times. That was while sharing with only Singletary, and now the addition of Breida could make this backfield messy. Barring an injury to Singletary and/or Breida, it will be tough to trust Moss as a starting Fantasy option in most leagues this year. (CBSSports.com)
