Nearly 60 Years On, The CIA’s Secret LSD Experiments Have Been Revealed

Before LSD escaped the lab and was evangelized by hippies, the U.S. government was secretly testing the effects of the drug on hundreds of unsuspecting civilians. In 1951, a french town called Pont-Saint-Esprit, was hit by a mysterious outbreak of hallucinations that left five people dead and many others seriously ill. The outbreak was blamed […]

NFL ratings down nearly 8 percent from first 6 weeks of 2016

NFL ratings continue to drop, Nielsen figures revealed Tuesday.

Viewership has dropped 7.5 percent compared to the first six weeks of the 2016 campaign, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell, and 18.7 percent compared to the beginning of the 2015 season.

Last season, the league attributed unusually low viewership to coverage of the presidential election, while others blamed the declining quality of games.

Political contention has certainly been a theme this season after President Donald Trump implored owners to fire players who protest during the national anthem. Many players stepped up their protests against racial inequality and police brutality in response, leading some viewers to disavow the league.

Credit Suisse lowered its ratings of FOX and CBS stock last week due to declining NFL viewership.

The audience for Monday Night Football, however, has increased 6 percent compared to this point last year.

Report: Cavs nearly traded Jefferson in 2016 for leaking championship rings

Richard Jefferson's tenure with the Cleveland Cavaliers could have ended a year earlier than it actually did.

Months after the Cavaliers captured their first NBA title in franchise history in 2016, Jefferson posted an image of the championship rings they’d be receiving to his Snapchat account, well before the team had a chance to themselves.

This reportedly infuriated former general manager David Griffin, so much so that he was ready to trade the veteran forward because of it, sources told ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.

Luckily for Jefferson, Griffin eventually cooled down and accepted his apology for the leak.

When the rings began circulating on social media, Jefferson deleted his original post and replaced it with one of him saying, "Haha … I knew you guys couldn't be trusted."

Related – Report: Jefferson intends to continue NBA career once waived by Hawks

The now 37-year-old was recently dealt to the Atlanta Hawks, along with Kay Felder, two future second-round picks, and cash considerations, in exchange for the draft rights to Dimitrios Agravanis and Sergey Gladyr.

Kanye West: How He’s Doing Nearly One Year After Mental Breakdown

Can you believe it’s almost been one whole year since Kanye West had his breakdown?

It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long at all, but then again, time flies when you have as much drama as the Kardashian family does.

Seriously, in the time since Kanye’s breakdown, he and Kim have found a surrogate and are expecting their third child, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian have gotten pregnant.

The whole family has had a falling out with Caitlyn Jenner, Scott Disick has been on his scariest downward spiral yet.

Kendall Jenner has found herself in a series of pickles, and there have been more plastic surgery rumors than you can shake a stick at, for the whole lot of them.

There’s been a ton of stuff happening with these people, — keeping up with them takes more than a lame one-hour television show, we’ll tell you that much.

With that constant stream of information on these people, it makes it hard to remember what happened when, or to keep tabs on the family members with less of a public presence.

And remember, ever since that breakdown of his, Kanye has mostly stayed out of the limelight.

But thanks to a wonderful new report from Us Weekly, we have an update on Kanye and his mental health.

And great news: he’s doing great!

“Kanye is in a good place right now,” a source claims. “He’s working on his music and laying low.”

Not only that, but “He’s been focused on staying calm and not doing anything to mess his mindset up. He’s in the zone.”

“He’s the best he’s ever been — he’s very stable,” the source continues.

“There haven’t been any manic outbursts. You’re going to see a calm Kanye who is taking it day by day.”

On another happy note, the insider adds that “He and Kim are stronger than ever,” too.

Not too bad, huh? Especially considering that not too long ago, Kanye was allegedly suffering from severe mental illness and you couldn’t get on the internet without seeing stories about his impending divorce.

We still don’t know all the details about what happened last year, or if there was any real truth to all the Kimye divorce rumors.

We do know that in the weeks before his breakdown, Kanye was behaving pretty strangely — he bashed former close friends Jay Z and Beyonce in emotional rants during concerts.

He also expressed his support for Donald Trump more than once, which was alarming, to say the least.

Some reports claimed that his issues were simply.due to exhaustion, while others claimed that he was depressed and paranoid and possibly violent.

A popular theory was that Kanye was deeply shaken by Kim’s Paris robbery, and that the anniversary of his mother’s death just a few weeks later pushed him over the edge.

As for the divorce rumors, most sources said that Kim and Kanye’s problems were also started by the robbery — she felt like he wasn’t there for her like she needed him to be because of his own issues.

But hey, at this point, all of this seems like water under the bridge, right?

Congrats on all the progress, Kanye!

Watt’s fundraising goal increases again with nearly $1M raised for flood relief

Just like with his play on the field for the Houston Texans, defensive end J.J. Watt keeps setting new goals for himself in his fundraising efforts to help victims of flooding in the wake of Hurricane Harvey's damage to the Houston area.

Watt began his efforts Sunday night with an online campaign and a goal of $ 200,000. He quickly raised it to $ 500,000 with a $ 100,000 donation of his own.

In just over 24 hours since the launch of the campaign, Watt's efforts have raised more than $ 955,000, including a $ 50,000 donation from Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul, according to Pro Football Talk.

"We can’t help physically, so we’re going to help raise that money, we’re going to try to make sure that we get a jump-start on it,” Watt said Monday after practice at the Cowboys’ practice facility. “We’re not going to wait until it’s too late to start. We’re going to try to raise that money right now, because we know what’s about to happen.

"We know that once this storm stops there’s going to be massive, massive recovery efforts, and we want to be there. We want to be ahead of it so we can really get a jump-start on getting these people back on their feet."

Rihanna: Nearly Nude, Probably Not Pregnant

Last month, rumors that Rihanna is pregnant began to make the rounds on social media.

The reports seemed to be entirely based on a handful of troll-ish d-bags looking at recent photos of RiRi and deciding she looks like she’s knocked up.

Based on her latest Instagram photo we’re go ahead and offer our own opinion:

If she is pregnant, it’s way too early in the game for some Internet jackwagon to make that assessment by looking at a damn photo.

Ms. Fenty is in Barbados at the moment, and as you can see, she decided to bless the island nation with the sight of her in … some sort of bejeweled peacock bikini thing.

We’re not really sure what you call that, but we know that it’s worthy of two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

Rihanna is in Barbados to perform at the Grand Kadooment, the celebratory conclusion of the famous Crop Over Festival.

Whenever she returns to her native country we get some incredible photos, but this year’s might take the cake.

Anyone can go to Barbados and snap some epic sand and surf shots, but not everyone can decorate their cleavage like something Liberace might imagine on LSD.

For obvious reasons, the photos have prompted many re-posts, along with captions about how your “fav” could never pull this look off, because for some reason, fandom is a competitive thing in 2017.

Anyway, for many folks it’s been a tough year with a lot of frightening stuff in the evening news.

So feel free to take comfort in the fact that it looks as though Rihanna will be continuing to show off her curves for the foreseeable future.

Maybe someday she’ll get pregnant.

Hell, maybe she’ll really get pregnant with Leonardo DiCaprio’s baby.

(Remember when that was a rumor. Never change, Internet.)

But for now, it doesn’t look like there are any Baby RiRis in the offing, and there are a few facts you can hang your hat on:

1. Rihanna looks amazing in whatever that thing is that she’s wearing.

2. Hassan Jameel is a lucky man.

3. We should all move to Barbados immediately.

Altuve nearly hit .500 during outstanding July

Jose Altuve is probably sad to see July go – although the way he’s hitting, August won’t be slowing him down any time soon.

The diminutive second baseman closed out his incredible month with a 2-for-4 night in the Houston Astros' 14-7 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Monday that ensured his work over the past 31 days won't be forgotten for some time. Altuve hit .485 over the month of July – a mark that left him tied for the fifth-highest average over a single calendar month (minimum 75 at-bats) in baseball's expansion era (since 1961), according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Per ESPN's David Schoenfield, Altuve narrowly missed out on becoming just the third player since 1961 to hit .500 for a month. Only two men – Todd Helton in May 2000, and Ivan Rodriguez in June 2004 – have surpassed the .500 mark during a single calendar month since the sport first expanded from 16 teams.

The 27-year-old Altuve also posted a .525 on-base percentage in July, and struck out just nine times.

Altuve now leads all American League hitters in a variety of categories this season, including batting average (.368), hits (148), doubles (33), and on-base percentage (.430). He's on pace to record his fourth straight 200-hit campaign and third batting title in four years.
