But while schools and businesses may want some documentation, the idea of a vaccine passport is not going to be mandated by the federal government, at least, according to White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki. The government is not Now, nor will we be supporting system that requires Americans to carry a credential. There will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination. Credential. She did say their concern was with protecting Americans.

Last week, the Mets announced they'd also be using clears health passed to confirm a fan's negative covert tests before game attendance. MGM Resorts is also partnering with clear, as is Las Vegas Sands Corporation. And, of course, as you might imagine, the airlines are considering all of this to their trade group.

Which has been this movement that her fans kinda started. There's been you know articles podcast and everybody talking about it. Of course. I follow her along with twenty seven other million people on instagram. And it's been weird. It's been weird watching her this last year. You gotta watch it. It's on lure fx. But it's just really they kind of just go through her whole career with in two hours which could have been. You know an eight part series. I think and we all remember when she came up. It was the mickey mouse club. And then all of a sudden she was really sexy. I remember when Shawn and marlon wayans were hosting the mtv awards and she came out and she did her sexy that goes with the snake and their joke which they came off came up with on the spot which is a great story is from minnie mouse club to the strip club and it was one of the funniest lines ever but now in watching that you're like wow you know this. This girl was suffering We made her suffer because we did jokes like this. We are obsessed with her sexuality. Diane sawyer was you look back at that interview which they featured and really putting her in the hot seat you know. Jay leno Doing jokes about her. We did jokes better. When chelsea lately started we. It was a great time for late night. Television also. Because right around that time the writers guild strike happened and we weren't writers guild so we were the only Late night show that got to stay on air. Every day was britney spears story. And it i. It just seemed like she was going. You know kinda fun crazy like she disliked to gas stations a lot and walk around barefoot and the paparazzi. Were there at the time. Because at that time there was no instagram. And that is how paparazzi and magazines made money is to get the shots of brittany. Brittany was the highest paid celebrity photos and then of course she married Kevin federal line but it was all just email. I just remember being doing chelsea lately and there was talk. We'll her kids taken away. And i remember sitting there going. There's no way she's going to lose custody of her kids. Come on i mean very few mothers do and she's she's going through a little struggling time but it's mostly because these paparazzi's are falling everywhere. Well you guys probably know this then. The dad got a conservative ship. And a lot of people after watching this special. This documentary said where was the mom. Why wouldn't the mom because parents divorced at that time. Try to get the conservative ship. Jamie her father was in and out of jobs Former drug addict. I believe maybe not drug out excessively alchoholic and So why would he be the person in charge. The thing is is. I think he was the first one to go to lawyers and try to get this into the works. And she was in a fifty one fifty at a mental institution when all this paperwork was done and the judge signed it. And now it's been you know fifteen years or something that this has been going on for and right away after this was done she started doing sitcoms again. Of course shortly after that she got her residency and she was making three hundred and fifty thousand dollars a night doing that show and then she left planet hollywood. And she now she's gonna do another huge residency at this new stage that they built her at the mgm and they do this big livestream thing and she comes up and then she just like and walks off talking to talk to reporters. She's not going to say anything. She's not going to do a song and shortly after that. She did it announcement saying my father is sick. And i'm not going to be performing. I'm going to put this residency off and that was really bizarre. People like is he sick. And i really don't know what the now looking back. I'm like i really don't know if he was sick of that was just her way out because now it looks like she in fact knew that the only way to get out of this conservatorship get her freedom back from her father was to stop working and stop making money and i. I would love to see what happened the day she was like you know what what the hell am i doing. Aren't going to sign up for another two or three year contract with them performing every night making all this money which. I don't get to choose how i want to spend the money. I don't get to get in the car and drive. I don't get to make a reservation and stay in hawaii on a whim without checking with twelve other people. Screw this you know. And she goes to her place in malibu during covert or wherever she is. Jesus been doing these weird instagram posts. Where her voice has changed. It's not the same voice. You're seeing these interviews on the documentary. And she's like ok guys. I've heard that a lot of been wondering what i'm going to do for the new year one. I'm gonna try to finish a pilates class to. I'm gonna try to meditate three. I'm going to try to eat better. And for i'm going to try that ice cream diet. And when she's doing it she's like it. Looks like she's definitely reading it whether it's a cue card but somebody else's there and the fact that she said i heard you guys not having reading your comments and one thing in the new year you guys asked me was Of course photos are weird. The makeup soy's like various mudgee. She's always wearing these crop tops. Sometimes she's dancing and you know i just really hope that I hope the mother gets involved. I hope that that the judge is able to watch this. Because i think when the judge granted this he was watching all the crazy news everyday. Let's just like the rest of us and this weird sam. Lufti was after an eye at the time. I was four the conservative ship. I'm like gosh. I don't want other people to take advantage of it this way. You know the data's there the other people are there to make sure that she stays healthy. No weirdos get around her. She's able to have visitation with her boys. But now after all these years it does seem really wrong and I think that this is going to be the catalyst to make whatever judges involved to open his eyes and maybe reconsider This conservative ship for

Tommy Padula, DarkZero Esport's New Head of Partnerships, On Connecting Entertainment, Sports and Esports
"As you age. Talk about d z as a 1 e sport organization. That's a little bit unique in the E Sports World. You're going to see most teams have a few different squads under their roster, but these like off going to focus entirely on Rainbow Six and we're going to become the top-ranked rainbow 16 in North America and it's a A strategy that's worked out pretty well for them. At least thus far but from a partnership perspective. How does that change your role? When you compete in one team when you're entirely tied to the Rainbow Six brand to Ubisoft, you know as would you're searching out Partnerships. How does that affect it as you just have the one team to base everything around? Yeah. First of all great. Great question. Of course, I'm in my I'm in my first few weeks. I'm still absorbing. I think it's important to note that you know, I'm still taking everything in understanding where we're positioned. Um, I'm not really getting to know the big players at different pedigrees and different tiers within Esports. And I'm under you know, I'm fully aware of our Boutique organization right now. And and how do we position that but I think this is what's really important. Is that right now, we're we're going to start laying the foundation for doing sponsorship and and Partnerships in Esports correctly and in a way that brands are used to and an Innovative way, but also in a way that brings your used to change that as we enter new scenes cuz we we absolutely are going to enter new scenes and and evaluate a quiz like, you know, acquiring and and I believe I believe Thursday for like starting those relationships now with branch that we can have founding partners that build with us so that we could actually integrate them from day one not try to build something and then see who fits into wage rather build something in lockstep with some of these Brands and and find some core founding Partners as we enter new scenes will enter together. They'll be a part of those conversations and and this way they're dead we put ourselves in a position to work in in a way that's more collaborative more integrated than we've ever seen in any sports or even in traditional Sports in the past. So that's what I'm excited to do with easy. It's a great answer. There's some really dead. Eat figs you could do a t Sports as it develops of as it grows. That is a little bit different than the traditional. Okay. I'm going to look for a sponsorship like you might see with you know, the New York Knicks. It's like okay, we could find some unique sponsorships, but generally people know what they're getting into it the mix and with dark0 you have a little bit more ability to be flexible to grow together with that being said wage based in Las Vegas, Nevada. I know that dark0 cares a lot about being part of this community being part of this even though e Sports is a global phenomenon Las Vegas is one of the most unique cities in all of America. You've got Major Brands like MGM Resorts that you worked for major sports books Global Entertainment Properties, massive events concerts sporting events. What are some of the opportunities you're looking for specifically in Vegas to help tie dark0 to the city. Love it. Yeah, you got some good ones here so long Las Vegas is the global Capital Sports entertainment people from all over the world know that if you want to have a good time get entertained push the envelope and be wowed Las Vegas is the place for that Esports is a global Sports entertainment platform that people all of our all around the world participate in in in global Brands participate. And and so I thought what what better place to stay up the flag in Esports it's and bring teams organizations. Leagues and brands from all over the the industry and all over the world to Los Vegas to participate in some, you know Monumental like, you know staple events yearly annually where we partner with some of the biggest venues in a midsummer when you see on the ship whether that's hyperx Arena whether that's the new Resorts World Casino, that's that's being built here across from the win MGM Resorts, of course where I come from the many properties there. I was off work closely with a lot of that that team there to start looking into Esports and how we were going to collaborate with with different organizations input on some of that. So I think putting together some amazing events where we invite some big teams and big organizations to compete on the Strip under the lights with some fans with some crowds attracts people from all over. I think that's one of the wage Equals like we really cool here a really cool to accomplish here. And I think that it starts with those relationships on the strip and they're in our backyard. So I'm looking forward to starting this conversations. Definitely you obviously have some connections to some of those properties as well as will be a really cool to see how you can tie that in Vegas and Esports of sort of danced around each other for quite a long time. There's been some some events held you have the Allied e Sports Arena like you measure the hyperx Esports Arena, which is this massive building on the Strip, but I feel like we haven't seen the complete dive in of the city to e-sports in a way that's going to really show the the events that are going to be know for for a long time. I guess Evo's here for a long time. But that was the flagship Vegas Esports of it, but it really feels like there is a big opportunity for Vegas to be the Ford Theatre. It's been on so many other things and bringing Sports into the fold and creates a really unique sports events. That really wouldn't be possible anywhere else. I couldn't agree more and I think that listen these things take time. Sometimes it's educating the different properties educating educating folks, but I think that you know, God Mention Evo in this other events that we could start to mold off of but there if we'd be we'd be crazy to say that there are Monster, you know Monumental a huge sports events that people will look back on for years that are not going to that aren't going to occur right here in Las Vegas.

One of the biggest movie theater chains in America is Shutting Down Indefinitely Regal Cinemas is rolling up the red carpet at it's five hundred plus theaters in America last Sunday Regal's parent company sent a world announced it would suspend operations beginning yesterday cinna world has also closing more than one hundred, twenty, five theaters in the UK it's the largest. Movie Theater Operator there in the second largest in the world after rival AMC entertainment holdings according to the Wall Street. Journal the suspension could last two months or a little longer according to send a world's CEO speaking with New York Times the suspension. The second one for the company since the pandemic started affects forty thousand US employees and fifty five hundred in Britain and Ireland. Industry Trade. Paper variety call last weekend decision to suspend operations sudden and shocking officials made the choice after. MGM On Friday postponed the release of its next James Bond movie no time to die. MGM had planned to release the double o seven Caper in November. Now it's planned tentatively, we assume for next April even pre pandemic theaters depended on blockbuster films to fill seats since March studios have been postponing releases and in many cases moving them to streamers instead. But postponement of the twenty seventh bond film was a crippling blow to theaters counting on the release to make some money. This year according to variety the decision was so abrupt that Cinta world didn't even tell employees about the suspensions rather the company left thousands to learn about their fates in newspaper headlines and tweets workers who belong to the Cinema World Action, group and employee collective tweeted that the company gave them. No warning workers have been left out of discussions that should have included our voices they stated adding that to find out you may no longer have a job from the media is awful. Sin A world lost more than one and a half billion dollars in the first half of the year. The New York Times reports AMC theaters is also struggling AMC stock dropped ten percent Monday morning after cinema world's news analysts say it will have trouble staying afloat in six months unless film attendance jumps or the company raises more capital according to CNBC.

Just aren't supplying films theaters need to keep operating he compared to a grocery shop without anything on the shelves but studio executives say they're postponing big releases because they can't turn a profit as because American viewers are still avoiding the theaters that have been open.

Times reports it's performed better overseas global receipts currently total three, hundred, million dollars, but the movie cost two, hundred million to make and millions more to promote for studio executives. Those numbers just don't add up and to reason enough for them to postpone the potential blockbusters like no time to die. So what will save the movie business it depends on whom you ask cinema world's chief is waging a PR war against New, York Governor Andrew Cuomo for not reopening theaters new. York. In Los Angeles are the two most important American markets for theater chains that they both remained closed as contributing to the weakness of the film business but with Covid nineteen cases climbing again in places like Brooklyn and Queens Governor Cuomo is standing firm.

Shadow Immigration System: Migrant Children Detained In Hotels By Private Contractors
"Began, the Trump Administration has set up a shadow immigration system on the U. S. Mexico border. Private contractors detain Children in hotels Before they're sent to their home countries. This allows immigration officials to bypass the normal process that would give the Children a chance to ask for asylum in the United States. NPR's Joel rose as the story of two people caught up in the system. It was late at night when Ricardo and Jorge arrived in a hotel parking lot, escorted by armed men in civilian clothes, way went in through the side door. No one was there. We didn't have to sign in or anything. We couldn't see the name of the hotel. Jorge is 16 and Ricardo is 13. They asked us not to use their last names because they're still in immigration proceedings. They're cousins who fled Honduras together after gang members threatened their family. They crossed the border illegally into Texas last month and turned themselves into the border patrol. After spending the night in detention. The boys say they were loaded into a van by the men who were not in uniforms. And they drove three hours to the hotel. Jorge says they were not allowed to leave their rooms for six days. They treated us badly at the hotel. They threatened us normally, when migrant Children travelling alone or apprehended. There are special protections that kick in to make sure they aren't sent back to dangerous situations. They're supposed to be detained and child appropriate shelters before being placed with a sponsor in the U. S while their asylum cases or heard But during the Corona virus pandemic that's not happening up and down the border, Court documents show. Many unaccompanied Children have been held secretly in hotels for days, sometimes weeks until they could be put on planes back to the countries. They came from. Immigration lawyers have figured out which hotel's leading to scenes like this one were detained. Give me your name. Texas Civil rights project posted this video on social media. Last month, he chose a lawyer confronting several unidentified men in the hallway of a hotel in McAllen, Texas, where the group believes migrant Children were being detained by police. Men shove the lawyer back into the elevator now. Private contractors working for U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are detaining these young migrants in hotels in McAllen as well Asshole Paso, Phoenix and San Antonio. According to court papers. The company MGM Ink says its contract with ice prevents it from from talking talking to to the the media. media. Ice Ice says says those those contractors contractors are are trained trained to to keep keep the the miners miners safe safe and and secure. secure. Jorge Jorge and and Ricardo Ricardo say say they they were were allowed allowed to to call call their their relatives. relatives. They They were were relieved relieved when when they they reached reached Ricardo's Ricardo's father, father, who who lives lives in in Texas. Texas. They They say say they they weren't weren't allowed allowed to to tell tell him him where where they they were were that we were forced to say that we were okay. And I wanted to tell him that we weren't getting enough food that we weren't allowed to go out or even to use the restroom. The boys figured this was just the normal immigration process in the US But Ricardo's father knew something was off. He's savvy about the system because he's seeking asylum himself. Three. Mind you. I think I suffered more than the kids because they knew absolutely nothing of what was happening. Ricardo Sr says days would pass. When he didn't hear from the boys or from immigration authorities. He drove six hours across Texas, stopping at every detention center and Border Patrol station to ask about the boys. All the while calling everyone he could think of for help. I told the lawyer I called the 100 government. I called the Honduras consulate and someone at that office told me the kids. We're on an express deportation list. What We're trying to that The best we can do is remove all individuals, regardless of whether they're minors. Or they're adults. That's Mark Morgan, acting commissioner of U. S customs and Border Protection. He says the Trump Administration is trying to protect public health during the Corona virus pandemic by keeping migrants without papers out. We're trying to remove them a ce fast as we can not put them into our system to not have them remain in the United States for a long period of time, therefore increasing the exposure risk. The American people. Immigration officials say they've carried out more than 100,000 expulsions during the pandemic, removing at least 2000 unaccompanied Children through June. So it's really clear to us that this is a pretext for blocking access for Children and for asylum seekers.

Shadow Immigration System: Migrant Children Detained In Hotels By Private Contractors
"Began, the Trump Administration has set up a shadow immigration system on the U. S. Mexico border. Private contractors detain Children in hotels Before they're sent to their home countries. This allows immigration officials to bypass the normal process that would give the Children a chance to ask for asylum in the United States. NPR's Joel rose as the story of two people caught up in the system. It was late at night when Ricardo and Jorge arrived in a hotel parking lot, escorted by armed men in civilian clothes, way went in through the side door. No one was there. We didn't have to sign in or anything. We couldn't see the name of the hotel. Jorge is 16 and Ricardo is 13. They asked us not to use their last names because they're still in immigration proceedings. They're cousins who fled Honduras together after gang members threatened their family. They crossed the border illegally into Texas last month and turn themselves in to the border Patrol. After spending the night in detention, the boys say they were loaded into a van by the men who were not in uniforms. And they drove three hours to the hotel. Jorge says they were not allowed to leave their rooms for six days. They treated us badly at the hotel. They threatened us normally, when migrant Children travelling alone or apprehended. There are special protections that kick in to make sure they aren't sent back to dangerous situations. They're supposed to be detained and child appropriate shelters before being placed with a sponsor in the U. S while their asylum cases or heard But during the Corona virus pandemic that's not happening up and down the border, Court documents show. Many unaccompanied Children have been held secretly in hotels for days, sometimes weeks until they could be put on planes back to the countries. They came from. Immigration lawyers have figured out which hotel's leading to scenes like this one here, give me your name. Texas Civil rights project posted this video on social media last month. It shows a lawyer confronting several unidentified men in the hallway of a hotel in McAllen, Texas, where the group believes migrant Children were being detained by the police and then shove the lawyer back into the elevator. Now, private contractors working for U. S Immigration and Customs Enforcement are detaining these young migrants in hotels in McAllen. As well as El Paso, Phoenix and San Antonio, according to court papers. The company MGM Ink says its contract with ice prevents it from talking to the media. I says those contractors are trained to keep the miners safe and secure. Jorge and Ricardo say they were allowed to call their relatives. They were relieved when they reached Ricardo's father, who lives in Texas, but they say they weren't allowed to tell him where they were. We were forced to say that we were okay. And I wanted to tell him that we weren't getting enough food that we weren't allowed to go out or even to use the restroom. The boys figured this was just the normal immigration process in the US But Ricardo's father knew something was off. He's savvy about the system because he's seeking asylum himself. Three. Mind you. I think I suffered more than the kids because they knew absolutely nothing of what was happening. Ricardo Sr says days would pass. When he didn't hear from the boys or from immigration authorities. He drove six hours across Texas, stopping at every detention center and Border Patrol station to ask about the boys. All the while calling everyone he could think of for help. I told the lawyer I called the 100 government. I called the Honduras consulate and someone at that office told me the kids. We're on an express deportation list. What We're trying to that. The best we can do is remove all individuals, regardless of whether they're minors or they're adults. That's Mark Morgan, acting commissioner of U. S customs and Border Protection. He says the Trump Administration is trying to protect public health during the Corona virus pandemic by keeping migrants without papers out. We're trying to remove them as fast as we can not put them into our system, not have them remain in the United States for a long period of time, therefore increasing the exposure risk. The American people. Immigration officials say they've carried out more than 100,000 expulsions during the pandemic, removing at least 2000 unaccompanied Children through June. So it's really clear to us that this is a pretext for blocking access for Children and for asylum seekers.

The big determination if mgm had just gone ahead and spent the one hundred ninety two thousand dollars on a sprinkler system. None of this would have happened according to David Mares who handled the investigation for the National Fire Protection Association quote with. With sprinklers, it would've been a one or two sprinkler fire, and we never would have heard about. Over thirteen hundred lawsuits were filed against one hundred eighteen different companies involved with the MGM Grand Hotel money from the companies went into a two hundred and twenty three million dollar settlement fund, which was distributed to the victims and their families within three years at the fire. MGM One hundred five million dollar settlement was the largest and with that settlement. No negligence was ever admitted. Beyond the human toll of this disaster it's hard to calculate the full economic impact of the MGM Grand. Over and above the two hundred twenty three million dollars in settlements paid out and the three hundred million dollars in reconstruction costs, there's the hundreds of millions of dollars lost downtime at the MGM Grand, as well as the hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue from gaming and tourism throughout the Las Vegas area, as news showed the horrifying images of the fire for weeks and months afterwards in all potentially billions of dollars literally went up in smoke as a direct result of the decision to save one hundred and ninety two thousand dollars by not installing sprinkler protection. After the MGM Fire Safety Officials in Clark County prepared recommendations for updating the fire code that would have led to Nevada having the most rigorous standards in the United States. But. When their proposal was submitted to legislators in the state capital, the regulations failed to gain any traction. Many state officials believe the fire at the MGM grand was a one off rare occurrence, the odds of it happening again where astronomically small plus money talks developers who make massive campaign contributions lobbied hard against regulations that they believe would slow down their business and eat into their profits. All of that opposition went away less than three months later. February tenth nineteen eighty-one, a massive fire this time sparked by arson, not accident broke out on the eighth floor of the East Wing of the Las Vegas Hilton within minutes flames had burst out of a window in the elevator lobby had were climbing twenty two floors, the outside of the building, while the inside of the hotel was filling up with thick black smoke and toxic fumes firefighters using.

It must have been traumatic I get it I just have a hard time with the survivor Monitor their brand Klay. Pools and attorney. That was there and he's now representing seventy five Survivors. And victims family, members he called the lawsuit a stunt that won't survive a court challenge hold on buddy His quotas I am still in therapy once a week and this is their. Way of trying to, solve the problem it shifting responsibility in minimizing. Their blatant negligence Then my thirty years of. Practice this is the most reprehensible behaviour. I have ever seen a defendant engage in and. They are. Trying to victimize these people twice here's. What MGM is doing MGM is not suing, them for damages they're not suing them to make them feel. Pain they're not this is a legal move Because MGM's lawsuit claims that the case. Must be dealt in federal. Court that what they're doing is looking. For a judge to say it's not this this. Needs to. Go to the fed level Under the terms of the nine eleven safety act hear me out which provides incentives for development and deployment of anti-terrorism. Technologies the company MGM says the security firm it contracting for the concert called CSC was approved by the department of homeland security prior, to and thus. Released MGM from why ability under that act Of course the attorneys are saying no way There's no way that that that does. That I, m GM has a, case here MGM saying I don't know why we have. Hundreds of people suing us as if we had anything to do with this guy As if he was shooting out windows before and we let him stay in our hotels Does that make sense why I say that when when I, if he were showing me he's there to. Shoot, somebody. And they don't kick him out they keep letting him stay in the, hotel yeah MGM it's this on you now One of the attorneys Said if you so much take a casino, chip off the table you will no doubt be immediately surrounded. By security guards..

The scenes discussion about this And it goes like this MGM resorts international owner. Of the. Las Vegas hotel which from what, Stephen paddock shot fifty eight people and wounded hundreds more at an outdoor concert Has filed lawsuit against hundreds of the victims claiming entertainment giant had, no liability of any kind so you're clear about connecting the dots their stepping in and and There, are su- to sue people For anything They don't want, any money they're suing you before you can, sue, them. Correct correct what, they did it's a little known little, legal thing a legal thing where you can they're trying to get in federal court because the company is signing a two thousand and two federal act that extends liability protection to any company that uses anti-terrorism technology or services that can help prevent and respond to.

Gonna end up down a dark hole of something different he's saying the absurdity of blaming them for not knowing. More about him seems a little late in the, game, what, what. I'm bothered by is this attitude that yeah yeah yeah we all kind of get. That MGM didn't do anything wrong bell come on guys, it's this attitude that if you're corporation that come on just pay the price and move along Long? Without any regard for what's right and what's wrong were shocked. Because MGM didn't rollover were shocked and offended because MGM didn't say okay what do you guys want we went. Out of this deal's fast as possible we're actually, shocked. Them, stop. We didn't do anything wrong and we're gonna fight back that is crazy to me. Is that we're shocked and offended that somebody did nothing wrong doesn't just go ahead and pay Right I mean I'll even admitted I'm shocked at MGM is doing, this, only because the standard procedure? Is AM screw it let's just pay and get. Out of the news were. Shocked and offended because we, can't none of us can say anything they've done wrong we just think they should just go along with protocol. And just pay I don't think that I think she Well it's unseemly to sue people who are victims of. This mass shooting that's unseemly, to me Jeff no. Way around that if I lost, a loved one and I get a, letter from MGM they're suing me because the victims. Have sued them GM should be the way the legal process works I guess this way orderly process now the legal process is not. Not even the issue right now. It is.
