More Info

Shinedown: Melodic hard rockers Shinedown hail from Jacksonville, Florida and feature vocalist Brent Smith, guitarist Jasin Todd, bassist Brad Stewart and drummer Barry Kerch. Snapped up by Atlantic Records during the early ‘00's flurry of post-Creed and Nickelback signings, the group released their debut album Leave a Whisper in 2003. Whisper ended up doing quite well for the band, aided by its single "Fly from the Inside." Shinedown also supported it with a heroic slate of live shows, remaining on tour for most of 2004. The following year the band issued a live album documenting those shows, then returned in October 2005 with their sophomore effort Us and Them.

  • Authorities dropped charges Tuesday against actor Jussie Smollett, who was accused of faking a racist, homophobic attack against himself in downtown Chicago. >> Read more trending news The actor told police he was confronted in the predawn hours Jan. 29 by a pair of men who yelled racial and homophobic slurs at him, hit him in the face, poured an unknown substance on him and wrapped a rope around his neck. Officers later arrested Smollett on several counts of disorderly conduct in falsifying a police report. >> Jussie Smollett pleads not guilty to disorderly conduct charges Update 12:15 p.m. EDT March 26: Smollett thanked supporters for standing by him and told reporters he’s been “truthful and consistent ... since day one.”  “This has been an incredibly difficult time -- one of the worst of my entire life,” he said. He told reporters outside the courthouse that he felt vindicated by Tuesday’s decision. “I’d like to thank to State of Illinois for attempting to do what’s right,” he said. “Now I’d like nothing more than to move forward with my life.” Smollett’s attorney, Patricia Brown Holmes, declined to say Tuesday whether the actor planned to take legal action against authorities for his arrest. “We have nothing to say to the police department except to investigate charges and not to try matters in the press,” she said. “I have no idea what occurred in this case or why it occurred.” Update 11:55 a.m. EDT March 26: Smollett’s family called the actor “an innocent man whose name and character has been unjustly smeared” in a statement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. “Jussie is a son, a brother, a partner, a champion for human rights and a genuine soul who would never be capable of what he was falsely accused of,” the statement said. “He was the victim of an assault and then falsely blamed for his own attack. The morning of truth has prevailed and he has been vindicated.” Update 11:45 a.m. EDT March 26: A spokeswoman with the Cook County State Attorney's Office said Tuesday that the agency believes the decision to drop charges against Smollett was just. 'After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollett's volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case,' said Tandra Simonton, chief communications officer for the Cook County State's Attorneys' Office. Update 11:20 a.m. EDT March 26: In a statement released Tuesday, Smollett's attorneys confirmed charges were dropped against the 'Empire' actor, who was accused of faking a racist, homophobic attack on himself. >> Jussie Smollett cut from final episodes of 'Empire' season after actor's arrest, producers say 'Today all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him,' attorneys Tina Glandian and Patricia Brown Holmes said in the statement. 'Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.' Update 11:15 a.m. EDT March 26: A judge on Tuesday agreed to a state motion to drop the charges against Smollett, according to WBBM-TV and the Chicago Tribune. Original report: Smollett was caught on camera after he appeared Tuesday morning at the criminal court building in Chicago. According to WFLD, Smollett's legal team planned to make an announcement around 10:45 a.m. local time. In a media alert obtained by WLS-TV, Anne Kavanagh said Smollett and his attorneys planned to speak to reporters after the court appearance. Smollett's surprise court appearance came one day after one of his attorneys, Mark Geragos, was identified by The Associated Press as a co-conspirator involved in an alleged Nike extortion plot that led to the arrest Monday of high-profile attorney Michael Avenatti. >> Who is Mark Geragos, defense lawyer to Michael Jackson, Winona Ryder, Jussie Smollett? Authorities did not name Geragos in court records. Check back for updates to this developing story.
  •  What may be lost in this week’s news about Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election is that the first debate for the 2020 Democratic candidates is weeks away. It is scheduled for June. Specifics on the first debate of the 2020 election cycle are still being firmed up, but here is what we know about the debate so far: When: The Democratic National Committee has not announced a date for the debate so far, but it will take place in June. Where: Again, no announcement on where the debate will be held. What channel: The debate will be aired on NBC News, MSNBC and TelemundoNo moderator or sponsor has been named, but in a crowded Democratic field, qualifications for those who will be onstage have been set. To be included onstage for the debate, candidates must: Either have at least 1 percent support in three qualifying polls or provide evidence of at least 65,000 individual donations from a minimum of 200 unique donors in at least 20 states. There may be back-to-back primetime debates on consecutive days, according to the DNC, to ensure each candidate gets access to a primetime audience. So, just two months out, who would you see on the stage in the first Democratic debate? Here is a look at who is in, who is trying and the debate schedule to date. Who has announced they will run for the Democratic nomination for president or have formed an exploratory committee to consider running: Sen. Cory Booker South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg Former Sec. of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro Former Rep. John Delaney Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Sen. Kamala Harris Former Gov. John Hickenlooper Gov. Jay Inslee Sen. Amy Klobuchar Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke Sen. Bernie Sanders Sen. Elizabeth Warren Author Marianne Williamson Entrepreneur Andrew Yang Likely to announce a run: Former Vice President Joe Biden Gov. Steve Bullock Rep. Eric Swalwell Democratic debate schedule   How many debates will there be?The Democratic National Committee has sanctioned up to 12 debates through the 2020 primary season. When are the debates?According to the DNC, there will be six debates in 2019 – with one each in the months of June to October, then one in either November or December. There will be six more debates in 2020 -- with two in January, two in February and one each in March and April. Who will be there?It is hard to say now since registered candidates have until March 31 to report first-quarter funds raised and money spent to the Federal Election Commission. Candidates are focusing on getting the 65,000 donors in 20 different states, and while some candidates have had record fundraising days, it’s not clear with most campaigns that they have raised the money in more than 20 states, or have reached the 65,000 donations or 200 unique donors. Buttigieg (pronounced: Boot edge edge) says his campaign has reached the 65,000 donations mark after he appeared at a town hall hosted by CNN. Buttigieg has not officially declared as a candidate for president but has launched an exploratory committee. Yang, a New York City entrepreneur, has passed the 65,000 donation mark. You can follow his progress on a counter on his homepage. Delaney is promising to donate $2 to charity for every dollar he gets in an effort to get 65,000 donors.  Under the polling option, the field opens up a bit. In an average of polls between October and March from Real Clear Politics, eight who have declared they want to run and one who is expected to run – Biden – would be on the debate stage. The other seven who have earned at least 1 percent support in three major polls are Sanders, O’Rourke, Harris, Warren, Booker, Klobuchar and Hickenlooper.

  • It was supposed to be a historic spacewalk. A team of only women were going to do a mission and leave the International Space Station.  But the plans have been canceled because the station doesn’t have enough correct fitting suits for the women, NASA officials said Monday. Anne McClain was supposed to do the space walk with Christina Koch Friday, but on a her first outing on March 22, McClain said the best-fitting hard upper torso part of the spacesuit was medium-sized, NBC News reported. >>Read: Astronauts to make history with first all-female spacewalk Only one medium-sized hard upper torso, or “shirt of the spacesuit,” can be made ready by Friday, NASA officials explained. That piece of equipment has been allocated for Koch, according to NBC News.
