SAN DIEGO (AP) — Riz Ahmed, who shattered glass ceilings as the first Asian man to win an acting Emmy, is celebrating fellow trailblazer Sandra Oh. The "Grey's Anatomy" actress became the first nominee of Asian descent in the leading drama actress category when Emmy nominations were announced earlier this month. "I'm incredibly happy for her. Massively well deserved," Ahmed said Friday at Comic-Con. "I think we're living in a moment where we are all realizing that it's not enough to just carry on with business as usual. If we just sleep walk forward, we can end up walking off a cliff and I think a lot of people think we've done that politically, both in Europe and in America." Last year, Ahmed took home an Emmy for "The Night Of." Oh received five bids for "Grey's" and has earned critical praise as a spy hunter in BBC America's "Killing Eve." Comic-Con attendees got a look at Ahmed's upcoming Spider-Man spinoff "Venom." His co-star is Tom Hardy.

Chelsea Janes, The Washington Post Published 11:15 am CDT, Saturday, July 21, 2018 Sean Doolittle jogged Friday afternoon, and that represented progress. But he did not come off the disabled list on his first day eligible to do so, which qualified as a disappointment. Doolittle's left foot continues to cause him trouble when executing his delivery, which means what he thought would be a 10-day DL stint will last longer. Doolittle said his bullpen session did not go well. He was "erratic," and didn't have the kind of life on or command of his fastball necessary to close out games. Given the importance of those duties, the Nationals cannot afford to have Doolittle figure it out on the fly.

It's been three weeks since a seven-week-old deaf puppy fell through a crack in the rock and into the hearts of thousands of people around the globe -- entranced by the 30-hour effort to rescue her from the 50-foot deep crevice at her Huntsville foster home. Now, the rescue group that saved Toffee and her six siblings from a field in Blount County plans on thanking those who came out to try and save the Australian Shepherd mix from her underground fate. How do you say thank you to 150 people, most of whom you've never met, and to those who watched on TV or the internet? With one big party. The animal rescue group, A New Leash on Life, is doing that on Friday, July 27, with "Toffee's Thank You Pawty -- a Community Celebration" at Mad Malts Brewery in Huntsville from 5-9 p.m. "There will be a band, and food trucks and other things ... it's just a big thank you from us, trying to reciprocate in a small way when people gave an outpouring of time and energy to save our little Toffee," … [Read more...] about How do you say thanks for rescuing a deaf Alabama puppy trapped underground?

Alta • Mount Baldy presents some of the trickiest avalanche-control problems in North America. Twenty-three chutes fall from the rounded treeless summit’s north face, each posing a threat to Alta Ski Area’s Ballroom and connected terrain at the top of Collins Bowl. For years, workers at the popular Utah resort have used explosive projectiles fired from a 105 mm howitzer and nonrifled guns known as Avalaunchers to blast down avalanches. But now ski area managers fear the use of military ordnance may soon end and are looking for an alternative. With the blessing of the U.S. Forest Service, which administers much of the land used by the ski area renowned for its old-school charms and harrowing terrain, Alta insists the best option is a small tram that would ferry up patrollers to deliver charges by hand. The proposal has sparked a backlash from environmentalists and even some of Alta’s own devoted skiers, who are campaigning to “Keep Baldy … [Read more...] about Why is Utah’s Alta Ski Area pushing for a tram up iconic Mount Baldy?
