British TV Companies Join Forces to Fight U.S. FAANGs

The FAANGS have rumbled into London and parked their tanks on the lawns of Britain’s traditional players, sending the incumbents fighting to protect their turf.

Bill O"Reilly Cites Clothing Company Conspiracy As The Reason He No Longer Fits In A Size XL — & Twitter Rips Him A New One!

First it was the leftist cabals that conspired to get the veteran journalist fired from Fox News. Now, it's the sinister clothing companies that are hitting the disgraced anchor wear where it hurts the most: his body image! On Tuesday, the conservative punit shared a "tip" to his Twitter followers to start ordering their clothes "one size larger than you are," because those evil clothing companies have conspired to "cut back on material"!

Clearly, nothing else could explain why an unemployed, 68-year-old man suddenly went up a clothing size during the holiday season. It's those damn leftist clothing companies -- and probably Hillary Clinton's emails, too! Needless to say, O'Frylly got mercilessly trolled for his delusional Tip Of The Day.

Nonprofit research company SINTEF says it has discovered that the popular dating/hookup app Grindr is sharing the HIV status of its approximately 3.6 million daily users with multiple companies. For those who don't use the app, users can indicate whether they are positive, negative, and/or being treated for the infection by using the app's "HIV status" category. Related: Call Me By Your Name Writer Slams Movie's Lack Of Dick! But according to Buzzfeed News, app optimization companies like Apptimize and Localystics have been receiving this information -- along with users' GPS data, phone ID, sexulaity, relationship status, and email address. If all this information leaks beyond these companies, the report notes, users in certain regions could potentially be in danger. Electronic Frontier Foundation security researcher Cooper Quintin told Buzzfeed: "When you combine this with an app like Grindr that is primarily aimed at people who may be at risk — especially depending on the country they live in or depending on how homophobic the local populace is — this is an especially bad practice that can put their user safety at risk." This safety doesn't seem much of a concern to Grindr's chief technology officer, who reportedly defended the choice to use the so-called "highly-regarded" data sharing platforms that puts app profiles at risk. Related: Eminem Talks Finding Dates On... GRINDR!? While users might be okay with sharing that specific information on the app, the app's privacy policy does not make it clear enough that this personal information could potentially be shared elsewhere.

Hurricane Harvey Victims Being Told To File Their Insurance Claims BEFORE Friday — Here"s What You Need To Know!

And it won't get much easier, even with insurance. Apparently many lawyers are urging victims to file their homeowners' insurance claims before Friday, September 1, when a controversial new law goes into effect. Related: How Celebs Are Helping With Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts House Bill 1774 is meant to reduce the number of lawsuits against insurance companies who don't pay off claims for weather-related lawsuits, including damage or loss of property due to "forces of nature" (hurricanes, wind, hail, snow or rainstorms). So what's the issue? If you do have to sue your insurance company and win, the penalty interest rate the insurance company will owe you drops from 18% to 10%. Additionally, lawyers must give insurance companies a heads up about future lawsuits, giving them more time to mount a defense. It does require insurance companies pay for the plaintiff's legal fees as long, but only if the homeowner has 80% accuracy in depicting the damage done to their home -- something that may be tough to prove. Basically the law is making it easier for insurance companies to flake on their payouts to policy holders. One lawyer from the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Craig Eiland, says if homeowners file before Friday, they will not be subject to the new law, even if their lawsuit comes later. Related: Twitter Reacts To Shocking Charlie Hebdo Cover Portraying Harvey Victims As Nazis Important note: flood insurance claims won't be covered by this new law. According to an Insurance Information Institute survey, just about 15% of homes in Harris County, Texas even have flood insurance. And if you did purchase flood insurance, most likely through the National Flood Insurance Program, it will be exempt from state laws. The Texas Trial Lawyers Association also confirmed the new law won't affect much in terms of flooding, though if you have other damage, it wouldn't hurt to file before Friday. Loretta Worters, an exec with the Insurance Information Institute, recommends at least reaching out to your insurance agent to let them know of storm damage to your home, vehicle, etc. Also, be sure to beware of spam insurance calls! Stay safe out there! We will continue to keep the victims of Hurricane Harvey in our thoughts during this difficult time......»»

Game Of Thrones Hatches A Mad Plan, Teases Madder Queens, & The Bastard Reunion We"ve Been Waiting For! Eastwatch Recap HERE!

That's the brilliant plan that brings our new favorite group of Game of Thrones boys North of the Wall — including one bastard we haven't seen in years! The latest hour of the HBO [...] Winter is here -- which means the people of Westeros need to put their houses and grudges aside to fight a common enemy. That's the brilliant plan that brings our new favorite group of Game of Thrones boys North of the Wall -- including one bastard we haven't seen in years! The latest hour of the HBO fantasy series ended with Jon Snow's mission to end all missions: capture a wight in hopes of convincing Cersei and Daenerys to form an armistice against the Army of the Dead. Related: Celebs Who LOVE Game Of Thrones! It's a visual fans would die to see -- but alas, nothing on this show ends up like the characters plan. At least that seemed to be a running theme through Eastwatch. Get the full recap (below)! Bend The Knee The episode kicks off in the aftermath of the Loot Train Attack, with Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) giving the defeated Lannister soldiers a choice: either bend the knee or get burnt to flames. Only two are stubborn enough to take the second option, Randyll Tarly and Dickon Tarly, who refuse to submit to the Mother of Dragons. She refuses to back down as well, and roasts the Tarly's alive. Once the Dragon Queen is back in Dragonstone, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) hatch an idea that could put an end to this petty war amongst men: bring Cersei evidence of this Army of the Dead to convince her to join forces with Jon and Dany (who still isn't 100% sold on the White Walkers herself just yet). It's an idea crazy enough to work -- mostly because it's the only idea left -- so, Ser Davos and Tyrion take an impromptu trip to King's Landing to get the ear of Cersei's most trusted hand, Jaime Lannister. After surviving that plunge into the river after last week's battle, Jaime returns to King's Landing to find a greater distance between him and Cersei (Lena Headey) -- she doesn't seem to give any fucks that it was Olenna Tyrell who poisoned their son Joffrey, and not Tyrion as she long suspected (wished?). Jaime then finds himself in a secret meeting with his traitor brother, now serving for the opposing army, who explains his plans to convince Cersei that the White Walkers are real. Once Jaime brings this news back to Cersei, he discovers an even more shocking revelation: she's pregnant with his child and plans on announcing it publically! Oh, and she knows about his secret meeting with Tyrion -- and, yeah, never betray the evil pregnant queen again. Rocking The Boat Meanwhile in King's Landing, Ser Davos has unfinished business in Flea Bottom -- to reunite with Gendry Baratheon (FINALLY!!!) who is no longer still rowing, but has been forging weapons for the Lannister army right under Cersei's nose. He immediately signs up for whatever mission Davos is offering, and later shows off his deadly skills with that cast-iron hammer by bashing in two nosy Gold Coats. As Tyrion says: "He'll do." Over in Oldtown, Sam is FED UP with his intern work in the Citadel. After Archmaester Ebrose brushes off a message from Bran warning about the walkers marching on the Wall, Sam decides he can no longer idly stand by with the maesters and ignore the looming threat. In fact, he's so fired up he completely ignores Gilly accidentally coming across a MAJOR revelation. According to an old scroll, a High Septon had annulled Rhaegar Targaryen's marriage in Dorne and married him to another woman (Jon's mother, Lyanna Stark). This means not only is Jon Rhaegar's son, but his legitimate son -- and rightful heir to the Iron Throne! (Sry, Dany!) Thankfully, Gilly will have a more appropriate time to reveal that information, as she and Lil' Sam head off to the North with big Sam and a bunch of books from the restricted section of the library. Stark Secrets Things are also heating up back in Winterfell, specifically between Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa (Sophie Turner). The sisters are already back to their bickering ways, but this time each Stark girl holds much more power. After some Stark bannerman suggest that Sansa should be their ruler in the Great Hall, Arya points out to her sister that she didn't extinguish the complaints as decisively as she should have. Sansa retorts that "cutting off heads" like Ayra is used to doing isn't the way to get people to work together. But Arya swipes back, hinting that Sansa's thirst for glory is evidenced by her taking residence in their parents' chambers. Easy, girls! Arya later sneaks around Winterfell following Littlefinger. She sneaks into his room to look for a scroll she hears him speak about with Maester Wolkan, but instead finds the letter Sansa was forced to write in Season One, asking Robb and Catelyn to pledge allegiance to Joffrey. As she leaves his room, it turns out Arya isn't that great at being faceless -- because the sneaky Littlefinger has been watching her, too. The Boys Are Back Up North Back in Dragonstone, Jorah Mormont has returned and replaced his allegiance as Daenerys' number one fanboy. But he doesn't stay for long -- instead, he volunteers to head up north for the wight-catching party beyond the Wall. Dany's fine with Jorah leaving, but isn't quite so happy when Jon declares he needs to lead the expedition. She says she hasn't given him permission to leave, which launches the King in the North into a passionate speech about trusting a "stranger" -- though Dany's eyes reveal she sees him as much more than that. The final scene of the episode teased all your favorite Westeros boyfriends putting aside their differences in the Eastwatch castle. Jon, Gendry, Jorah, and Davos try to convince Tormund, Beric Dondarrion, Thoros of Myr, and the Hound to join their wight-hunting party. The group has some history -- Turmond isn't a fan of Jorah because his father used to hunt wildlings as Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Gendry points out that Beric and Thoros once sold him off to Melisandre. The Hound is, well, just the Hound. But Jon reminds them that their all on the same side now because they're all breathing, and the men agree to embark on perhaps the most important mission yet: to capture a White Walker and convince the feuding Queens to join forces. Bring your coats -- next week's episode is gonna be extra chilly! [Image via HBO.].....»»
