  • Jameis Winston won't be penalized by ACC for ref bump

    Published: Mon, Nov 24, 2014

    The contact between Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and an official in Saturday's Boston College game was "incidental and insignificant" and did not warrant an unsportsmanlike penalty, said the ACC's coordinator of officials. Winston was shown trying to move the official out of the way during a Florida State offensive drive in the third quarter withe the score tied at 17. Doug Rhoads, the ACC's coordinator of officials, said in a statement Sunday: "The center judge's positioning, which was due to the experimental year of having an eighth official, combined with the late substitution and by rule the need to allow the defense to matchup, led to contact between himself and the player. The official believed the contact was incidental and insignificant and did not rise to the level of unsportsmanlike conduct and automatic disqualification."

  • Notre Dame's Brian Kelly is going to Florida...to get some sun

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy isn't the only coach being mentioned for Florida's vacant head coaching position. Notre Dame's Brian Kelly has also been tossed around as a "candidate” for the job. Kelly, though, wasn't listed last week by sports gambling site Bovada as a favorite for the job. Bovada had Gundy as the betting favorite. Florida will likely be the top job available this winter as Florida fired Will Muschamp last week. Kelly was asked about Florida on Thursday and had some fun as he cut off the question. "I'm going to Florida -- in about two weeks to get some sun," Kelly said, according to South Bend’s WNDU.com. "I'm getting out of here with this weather -- are you kidding me? So you can write that down. I'm going to Florida. Write it down now, get it out there get it on the news waves."

  • What not to say to a cancer patient at the holidays

    Published: Mon, Nov 24, 2014

    For the estimated 1.6 million Americans  diagnosed with cancer  each year, making it to the holidays can feel like a personal triumph and a huge blessing. However, for many cancer patients the big family dinners and holiday parties that are part of the festive season can come with an element of dread. Nearly everyone who has gone through treatment for a life-threatening illness will tell you that when surrounded by friends and family -- both distant and close relatives -- there's likely to be at least one guest with "foot-in-mouth disease." Dana Manciagli, a stage 4 breast cancer survivor, recalled how she threw a holiday party in 2002 to celebrate coming through the end of her treatment that year. "A woman walked up to me and said, 'How can you be so happy? You have cancer,'" Manciagli told CBS News. "I was surprised she didn't wear black to the party."

  • #ThanksMichelleObama: Students criticize school lunches

    Published: Mon, Nov 24, 2014

    Students unhappy with school meals are taking it out on the first lady by sharing images on social media of lunches sarcastically tagged  #ThanksMichelleObama . Some of the images depict formless, mushy blobs on a lunch tray. Others show patties on whole-grain buns accompanied by an apple where one could imagine a pile of tater tots residing in earlier times. The complaints focus on taste, texture and portion sizes under new nutrition regulations promoted by the first lady. The standards were implemented as part of Obama's "Let's Move!" initiative to reduce childhood obesity. They took effect in 2012 with the goal of including more whole grains, vegetables and fruits in school meals while reducing fat and sodium. But students say the changes make the food unpalatable.

    Jackie and Drew had met while working lifeguard shifts together at the university pool, and Jackie had been floored by Drew's invitation to dinner, followed by a "date function" at his fraternity, Phi Kappa Psi. The "upper tier" frat had a reputation of tremendous wealth, and its imposingly large house overlooked a vast manicured field, giving "Phi Psi" the undisputed best real estate along UVA's fraternity row known as Rugby Road.  Jackie had taken three hours getting ready, straightening her long, dark, wavy hair. She'd congratulated herself on her choice of a tasteful red dress with a high neckline. Now, climbing the frat-house stairs with Drew, Jackie felt excited. Drew ushered Jackie into a bedroom, shutting the door behind them. The room was pitch-black inside. Jackie blindly turned toward Drew, uttering his name. At that same moment, she says, she detected movement in the room – and felt someone bump into her. Jackie began to scream.

    Up to 30,000 missing emails sent by former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner have been recovered by the IRS inspector general, five months after they were deemed lost forever. The U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed congressional staffers from several committees on Friday that the emails were found among hundreds of “disaster recovery tapes” that were used to back up the IRS email system. “They just said it took them several weeks and some forensic effort to get these emails off these tapes,” a congressional aide told the Washington Examiner. Committees in the House and Senate are seeking the emails, which they believe could show Lerner was working in concert with Obama administration officials to target conservative and Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status before the 2012 presidential election.
