A girl whose attorney says she’s one of the victims in the sex crimes case that led to former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle being sentenced to more than 15 years in prison is suing the disgraced Indiana man and a former associate, seeking at least $300,000 in damages.

    Considering there seems to be a lot of proof that Subway knew about the sex abuse claims and hushed it up/refused to let him go as spokesman, maybe an investigation is in order as to whether they can be held accountable, as well.

He continued: Licato says he lost consciousness when he landed at the foot of the stairs, and when he came to his face was covered in blood, his glasses broken in half.

Donald Trump Foreign Policy Speech: Highlights

Donald Trump Foreign Policy Speech: Highlights

Donald J. Trump called for an “America First” foreign policy in his address in Washington on Wednesday. Mr. Trump ends with a Reagan-like bit of optimism: that the United States can enter a new era of prosperity and power. That’s an appealing theme at the end of a populist and nationalist speech — but he left questions on the table. Many questions. Mr., Trump said that the U.S. would do no nation-building but that it would build stability around the world. Hard to know how you do one withou...

Billion-dollar tech startup had to tell employees to stop having sex in inappropriate places

The report sheds light on the unruly behavior of a high-flying startup fueled by hundreds of millions in private venture financing and a history of playing fast and loose with the rules in order to foster its relentless and often reckless growth. Barely two years after it launched, Zenefits received a lofty $4.5 billion valuation in early 2015 at the peak of the frothy venture capital market.

Ex-Browns GM explains who's to blame for drafting Johnny Manziel

Ex-Browns GM explains who's to blame for drafting Johnny Manziel

One of the downsides of being an NFL GM is you get tied to the players taken by your team, even if you weren't really thrilled about those players being taken. Put another way: different general managers have different levels of power and sometimes don't get final say. Speaking to CBS Sports Radio's Damon Amendolara on Monday night, Farmer made it clear that in many cases there is not one person absolutely responsible for drafting any given player. "There are very few decisions made in anybod...

    Interesting article. He may not have been the best father, husband and he certainly had a serious drug problem but he was amazingly talented and will be deeply missed. Rest in peace Scott Weiland.
