Los Angeles police officers tampered with voice recording equipment in dozens of patrol cars in an effort to avoid being monitored while on duty

An inspection by Los Angeles Police Department investigators found about half of the estimated 80 cars in one South L.A. patrol division were missing antennas, which help capture what officers say in the field. The antennas in at least 10 more cars in nearby divisions had also been removed.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and other top officials learned of the problem last summer but chose not to investigate which officers were responsible.

Found! First Earth-Size Planet That Could Potentially Support Life
Astronomers have discovered a planet about the size of Earth,
orbiting its star in the zone where oceans of liquid water would be possible.

From Space.com

A study of the newly-found planet indicates it could have an Earth-like atmosphere and water at its surface. The planet Kepler-186f is the fifth planet of the star Kepler-186, 490 light-years away.

The planet has 1.11 times the Earth’s mass. Its radius is 1.1 times that of Earth. Kepler-186f orbits at 32.5 million miles (52.4 million kilometers) from its parent star. Its year is 130 Earth days. 

The planet orbits Kepler-186, an M-type dwarf star less than half as massive as the sun. Because the star is cooler than the sun, the planet receives solar energy less intense than that received by Mars in our solar system, despite the fact that Kepler-186f orbits much closer to its star.

guys this isn’t just some science jerk-offery. This is legitimately the first confirmed exoplanet that fulfils all of NASA’s main prerequisites, same mass, same density, rocky, right zone in terms of heat, it may even have an atmosphere.

Soon we’re launching a satellite code named “Star Shade”, which although it sounds badass is literal- it’s a massive unfurling shade that will allow a powerful telescope to TAKE PHOTOS of these goddamn planets, no doubt this one will be first on the list, to see what they look like.

PHOTOS, EVERYBODY. PHOTOS.

I say we name it in honour of Carl Sagan who first brought serious investigation into finding exoplanets in a time where people didn’t even believe they existed, yet.

that is the most relevant thing Rita Ora has done with her career

Well that’s highly inappropriate.

And rude. 

"He just won an award and instead of appreciating his talent and listening to what he has to say, I’m going to tear off his shirt because I want to stare at his body, which is way more important!" 

But this happens to women on a daily basis!

Oh, no it doesn’t. Women don’t get their clothes torn off after they’ve won an award. Wardrobe malfunction, yes; inappropriate slightly sexist jokes, yes: but, THIS HAS NEVER FUCKING HAPPENED TO A WOMAN, THIS INSTANCE HERE.

-Liv

On the one hand, it seems inappropriate…

But he’s kind of okay with it, and I’d be willing to bet it was planned before hand, at least somewhat.

And no, nothing like this happens to women on a daily basis, please stop with that bullshit.

Quite possibly. One thing I’ve learned from this is that actors HAVE to roll with it, they just have to make due. 
He was probably not expecting that at all, and just had to go with it. 

That’s rude, I wouldn’t be happy with this, even if I looked that good.
