An Arizona high school boys basketball tournament Saturday was marred by a wild brawl that broke out in the handshake line which spilled into the stands.

Skyline High School defeated Cesar Chavez High School, 63-57, in the championship game of the Phoenix Union High School District Coyote Classic basketball tournament. The fight occurred as players from both schools were in the middle of the handshake.

According to video obtained by the Arizona Republic, the brawl started after a Cesar Chavez player punched a Skyline player. Video showed the melee spill into the stands with parents getting involved trying to break it up and fans fighting in the middle of the court.

Phoenix police helped break up the fight and authorities told the newspaper that no arrests were made.

David Hines, executive director of the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA), announced consequences for both high schools Monday in hopes that a fight like that would never happen again.

Cesar Chavez will forfeit its next game and a determination is still to come as to whether the high school boys team will play again this season. Any player directly involved with the fight will receive a three-game ban at the minimum. Officials also said that Cesar Chavez will issue a formal apology to Skyline and the tournament host school Phoenix Central.

“It was ugly,” Hines told the Arizona Republic. “The video is not good. Parents have to understand they cannot get involved. I understand they want to protect their kids. The schools will take appropriate consequences.

“What makes it difficult is our officials are off the court, it’s the end of the game. It still falls under some of our bylaws. Our schools can follow up and make appropriate adjustments to that. That’s what we expect them to do.”

According to the newspaper, each school will determine whether players are suspended and for how long.

“They will identify any other kids that we did not,” Hines said. “They’re taking this very seriously. They will deal with the kids from their end. They know there is no tolerance for this. We need to make a statement, understand that this is high school athletics. This behavior is unacceptable.”

Mark Steyn mocks Biden’s daily ‘gibberish’ on ‘out-of-touch’ No Malarkey tour

Westlake Legal Group biden Mark Steyn mocks Biden's daily 'gibberish' on 'out-of-touch' No Malarkey tour Nick Givas fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc b4169a0e-2fc4-5fe5-aa74-098a9cb1934a article

Commentator and author Mark Steyn mocked 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday, for his “out-of-touch,” No Malarkey Iowa bus tour.

The eight-day bus tour was launched on Nov. 30 and includes stops in Cedar Rapids, WaterlooMason City, Elkader, Decorah, and Oelwein.

“He paid some fancy millennial consultant $30 million to come up with that slogan,” Steyn said. “They did focus groups on other ones … They also want for the, no horsefeathers tour. I think that tested quite well with Muslim millennials. And they tried the no-flap doodle tour. I think that actually worked well with some feminist lesbians.

“And then the final one… the no cockamamie, fiddle-faddle, for the birds, bunkum, dagnabit tour, which polled really strongly with undocumented transgenders,” he added.

BIDEN ANNOUNCES ‘NO MALARKEY’ IOWA BUS TOUR TO BOOST SLUMPING 2020 CAMPAIGN

Steyn continued to mock Biden for referencing his leg hair on the campaign trail after he said children used to play with his legs and jump in his lap.

“I have waited all my life for a hairy-legged candidate and this is — this is a critical lane and the Democratic primary,” he said. “We talk about the moderate lane, the socialist lane, the even more socialist lane, but the hairy leg lane has been wide open since Beto [O’Rourke] Instagrammed himself shaving his legs back in August.

“And then using an arugula exfoliate to moisturize them. [Biden] cunningly saw that there was an opening.”

The tour’s name is likely derived from Biden’s 2012 vice presidential debate against former GOP Rep. Paul Ryan when he told the Wisconsin Republican that his critique of the Obama administration’s foreign policy was, “a bunch of malarkey.”

Steyn said if Biden were not committing daily gaffes and talking “gibberish,” more people would be discussing the Ukraine corruption allegations against him and his son.

Princess Cruises apologizes for ‘racist’ Maori ceremony in New Zealand

A spokesperson for Princess Cruises has apologized for “cultural insensitivity” after photos of a welcoming ceremony were blasted as “racist” on social media, primarily because the employees at the ceremony were dressed in traditional Maori attire, despite not being members of the indigenous group.

On Monday, guests traveling on Princess Cruises’ Golden Princess ship were welcomed aboard at the Port of Tauranga in New Zealand by a group of “non-Maori men” wearing “crude skirts” with “scribbles” across their faces, the New Zealand Herald reports. The men are said to have posed for photos with Golden Princess passengers and pretended to perform a pōwhiri ceremony, or the traditional welcoming ritual of New Zealand’s indigenous people.

A Facebook user identified as Steve the Maori soon shared images of the scene to social media, and the post has since gone viral with over 1,400 shares and 1,300 comments. Describing the sight as “racist,” Steve alleged that Princess Cruises likely had their own staffers dressed up in the Maori-inspired outfits in a bid to save money — as opposed to hiring a local Maori group for job of welcoming guests aboard the ocean liner.

CRUISE LINE INCIDENT REPORT SHOWS UPTICK IN SEXUAL ASSAULT ACCUSATIONS DURING SUMMER MONTHS

“Many cruise ships when traveling to NZ ports, such as the Port of Tauranga, opt to have a traditional Maori Welcome (Powhiri) welcoming the 3000-plus guests,” Steve wrote.

“A lot of cruise companies employ local Maori cultural groups to sing or perform dances etc., welcoming travelers to shore but in this situation Princess Cruises (purely an assumption based off the branding of the tent) are using their own non-NZ staff, with careless scribbles on their faces [and] wearing skirts which do not depict Maori culture which I personally find a disgrace,” he speculated.

“I find it deplorable to blatantly lie to guests in a racist attempt to save money on local performers… This practice needs to be discouraged,” he concluded.

Echoing similar sentiments, Maori cultural adviser Karaitiana Taiuru said that he found the social media posts to be so offensive that he first thought they were a prank.

“It is blatant racism and exploitation of Maori culture and of staff by the company. It is derogatory and there is no excuse for such behavior in today’s age where other actions have been in the media and criticized,” Taiuru told the Herald.

“Anyone with a basic understanding of the English language with access to any sort of media, whether it is a newspaper, radio or the internet, should be aware of the offensiveness,” he said. “There is absolutely no excuse for an international company to operate like this in New Zealand.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Port of Tauranga described the incident as “not acceptable” and claimed that the port had no responsibility for the event.

According to Stuff.co.nz, Tauranga Mayor Tenby Powell said that many people called him with “very, very genuine concerns” following the incident.

“If the facts are as I understand, this shows a complete lack of cultural awareness,” Powell said. “Clearly we welcome the cruise ships and the visitors, but we expect them to have an authentic and warm welcome.”

In the days since, a spokesperson for Princess Cruises apologized for “cultural insensitivity” and confirmed that the welcoming ceremony had indeed by organized by the cruise line.

“We give a complete assurance that no offense was ever intended and we apologize unreservedly for what has happened. We took immediate steps to address this sensitive situation,” a representative told the Herald. “After being made aware of the situation, the ship’s management team took action to withdraw the ship photographers from the area to prevent any further possibility of cultural insensitivity.”

A spokesperson for Princess Cruises was not immediately available to offer further comment.

Baby porpoises are being poisoned by a ‘cocktail of chemicals’

Baby porpoises in the U.K. are being poisoned by what’s described as a “cocktail of chemicals” stemming from pollutants in their mother’s milk.

The researchers found that the chemicals, which include polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), are passed on from the mother to their calves. The longer they remain in the mothers’ bodies, the more toxic they are to their offspring, the researchers noted.

“It’s a tragic irony that juvenile porpoises are being exposed to a toxic cocktail of chemicals during feeding – when all they’re supposed to be getting are the vital nutrients they need for the crucial developmental stage of their life,” the study’s lead author, Rosie Williams, said in a statement.

COCAINE FOUND IN SHRIMP, SHOCKING STUDY REVEALS

According to the BBC, PCBs were used in plastics and paints and have long been banned, but remnants of them still exist.

PCBs have also been discovered in whales and dolphins, the BBC added, which cited a recent study that noted dolphins in the English Channel were exposed to a ‘cocktail of pollutants.’

“Previously, scientists tended to monitor PCB concentrations by grouping them together and treating them as one chemical, but as we know, they’re a group of chemicals with different toxicity levels so it was a bit like trying to measure how much caffeine someone’s had — without knowing whether they drank three cans of red bull or three cups of tea,” Williams added. “Our study has highlighted the need to change our approach to monitoring PCBs, to look at the composition of individual chemicals, so that we can get a better understanding of the risk posed by these chemicals to our marine wildlife.”

In 2018, traces of cocaine and illegal pesticides were found inside freshwater shrimp across 15 different locations across Suffolk, England.

SHARK WOUNDS ARE KEPT ‘INFECTION FREE’ THANKS TO THIS SHOCKING DISCOVERY

Williams said that studying PCB exposure in species that have abundant populations can help aid in those where the population numbers are dwindling, including orcas, where there are only eight remaining in the U.K.

“As top predators, killer whales are exposed to some of the highest levels of PCBs, because there is an accumulative effect of PCBs as you go up the food chain,” Williams added. “It’s obvious that marine mammals are still experiencing the lingering impacts of PCBs, so identifying the sources and pathways they’re entering our oceans is a vital next step to preventing further pollution.”

One of the study’s co-authors, Susan Jobling, said the research allows scientists to further understand how prevalent PCBs are and how they impact the environment as well as the animals in the area.

“This research helps further our understanding of these legacy industrial chemical pollutants and the effects that different levels of exposure, in complex mixtures, may have,” Jobling said. “Learning more about PCB exposure in juvenile animals is vital, so that we can try to mitigate the impact of these dangerous chemicals on populations and help protect the future status of marine mammals in U.K. waters.”

The research is published in the scientific journal Science of the Total Environment.

Kate Beckinsale defends bikini pics after troll says she’s having a midlife crisis

Kate Beckinsale is defending her latest flurry of bikini snaps after a troll said on Instagram that the star was having a midlife crisis.

Over the weekend, the “Underworld” actress, 46, chronicled her trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and showed off plenty of skin on her Instagram. However, one online user did not have kind words for Beckinsale.

“I feel like you are having a mid life crisis or something 😂,” the user wrote on a post that showed off Beckinsale’s toned abs and legs on the beach.

Beckinsale was quick to respond, telling the user, “oh ! I think that’s because you’re an annoying a—hole.”

While the user’s negative comment received over 100 likes, Beckinsale’s comment received over 700 and the actress received an outpouring of support from her followers afterward.

“yes kate tell them off queen,” one supporter wrote.

“He’s just jelous [sic] of your incredible legs,” another supporter wrote.

“love it. People are haters. I wouldn’t even respond. Screw them,” said another follower.

KATE BECKINSALE POSES PARTLY NUDE IN STUNNING INSTAGRAM SELFIE

Beckinsale kept her 3.6 million followers updated all throughout her weekend with various racy shots of her Mexico trip.

The actress even shared a photo with a humorously tongue-in-cheek, semi-philosophical caption that questioned our humanity.

“What makes us human?” Beckinsale pondered. “Having to confront our own mortality, questioning our origins through philosophy, religion and science. And the fact that if we wear white bikini bottoms we will, within the hour, sit on a choc ice.”

Cincinnati Bengals fan who lived on roof until team won game returns home after 57 days

A die-hard fan of the NFL’s beleaguered Cincinnati Bengals finally slept in his own bed after nearly two months in self-imposed exile atop a restaurant roof.

Jeff Lanham, who admits a foolish wager led to his 57-day adventure, finally got a break following the Cincinnati Bengals’ win over the New York Jets on Sunday.

NEW YORK JETS ON THE WRONG SIDE OF HISTORY WITH LOSS TO WINLESS CINCINNATI BENGALS

Cincinnati lost their first 11 games of the season before defeating the Jets at home behind Andy Dalton’s 243 passing yards and a touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd. Lanham slept in his own bed Sunday night.

“I was stuck,” Lanham, who spent the nights in a well-furnished tent on the roof of the Hog Rock Café in Milian, told FOX 19. “Just glad I won’t be there all season.”

Lanham said a silly bet sparked the idea that he would stay up on the roof until the Bengals won the game. He said he didn’t expect to be up there for that long and credited his wife for helping him get through the nights.

“Bringing me meals, my laundry, I mean, everything,” he said. “I didn’t do anything.”

Lanham said he was brought Thanksgiving dinner and over the course of living on the roof he came down once to attend a benefit for a local child who was born with spina bifida, according to FOX 19.

Off-duty California police officer attacked by teens after helping woman who said phone was stolen

An off-duty police officer who stepped in to help a woman who claimed her phone had been stolen was attacked by a group of teenagers at a busy outdoor shopping center in California on Black Friday.

The assault – which was captured on video – happened around 8 p.m. at the Bay Street Mall in Emeryville, located next to Oakland. The Emeryville Police Department said Monday a woman seen in surveillance video wearing white clothes approached a group of teenagers and accused them of taking her cellphone minutes earlier.

“She confronted them asking for her phone back. During the confrontation, the juveniles got aggressive with the victim and began to assault the victim,” Emeryville Police Detective Jaime Pardo told reporters.

After spotting the commotion, a California Highway Patrol officer – who asked to only be identified as Greg B. – approached the group and tried to secretly take photos until one of the girls in the crowd noticed what he was doing.

“The group then turned toward him and became violent with him,” Pardo said.

In the video released by officials on Monday, one of the teenagers runs at the off-duty officer and hits him. Another boy then punches him as he runs off until he is surrounded and attacked again. A security guard can be seen getting knocked down in the video while trying to respond to the unruly group.

“It was a melee. It was chaotic. It was a really scary situation,” Greg B. told KTVU. “It should have never gotten to this point.”

The officer said he tried to run away, but the teens surrounded him.

“But I know that when I let him go, he’s going to swing at me. And I let him go. I push him and sure enough, he turns around and swings at me,” he told KTVU. “I back up and that’s when one of his friends came up behind me and struck me in the back of the head.”

The officer, a former correctional officer at San Quentin Prison, said he never drew his gun during the incident. His girlfriend alerted mall security that he was an off-duty state cop.

“There was a lot of restraint that had to be practiced,” he told KTVU. “And I had to do my best to stay in the moment.”

Greg B. sustained a concussion, a broken finger and bruises after the assault. He said it was the third time he had to help someone at the shopping center. 
 
“I think this just came down to me not being able to look away and let this happen,” he told KTVU. “I saw this young lady and she was going to be in a very bad situation.”

The Emeryville Police Department said Monday that two juveniles, ages 14 and 16, were arrested while six others are still being sought, according to KGO-TV.

Authorities are hoping to use surveillance video to assist in their investigation, and are asking the public for help in submitting and videos or photos from the Friday night incident.

‘Snowball Earth’ discovery: Experts reveal how life survived prehistoric ice age

Nearly 600 million years ago, a massive ice age radically altered the planet’s climate, resulting in a “Snowball Earth.” Now, researchers believe they have discovered how early animals on this planet survived — and thrived — during the colossal event.

Known as the Cryogenian Period, the era lasted from approximately 720 million to 635 million years ago, severely constricting the oxygen supply on the planet. But the researchers from McGill University found that the meltwater from the glaciers created pockets of oxygen in the oceans, which let life thrive until the ice age ended and they were able to emerge.

“The evidence suggests that although much of the oceans during the deep freeze would have been uninhabitable due to a lack of oxygen, in areas where the grounded ice sheet begins to float there was a critical supply of oxygenated meltwater,” the study’s lead author, Maxwell Lechte, said in a statement. “This trend can be explained by what we call a ‘glacial oxygen pump’; air bubbles trapped in the glacial ice are released into the water as it melts, enriching it with oxygen.”

600M-YEAR-OLD ICE AGE CAUSED ‘SNOWBALL EARTH,’ RADICALLY CHANGING PLANET’S CLIMATE

Lechte and the other researchers looked at the chemistry of the iron formations in ancient rocks that were left behind by glacial deposits in Australia, Namibia and California.

“The fact that the global freeze occurred before the evolution of complex animals suggests a link between Snowball Earth and animal evolution,” Lechte added. “These harsh conditions could have stimulated their diversification into more complex forms.”

Researchers had previously thought that life may have existed in meltwater puddles on the surface.

Lechte added that even though the study focused on the availability of oxygen, primitive organisms known as eukaryotes would have also needed food to survive the “Snowball Earth,” meaning further research is needed to determine how they were able to sustain.

The study has been published in the scientific journal PNAS.

Tiger Woods scored a unique, trick-shot victory at an event before the Hero Challenge in the Bahamas on Monday.

Woods, Jordan Spieth, Gary Woodland, Henrik Stenson, Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau participated in the Hero Shot competition, according to Golf Digest. Each golfer had to rack up points hitting targets from a tee box onto a makeshift green about 130 yards away.

Each golfer had six balls to get as many points as possible. The rings were marked100 and 200 points while the bullseye was worth 500 points. The sixth ball was worth double points, according to Golf Digest.

Woods and Spieth would advance to the final stage of the competition. The two golfers were tied with Woods’ final ball coming up.

The reigning Masters champion hit the bullseye for the win. And even though it was a meaningless competition, Woods made it clear that he felt good about his swing.
