 Live-Action Legend of Zelda TV show in the works?

 

“The Legend of Zelda,” one of the most popular videogame series of all time, is in the works as a television show at Netflix.

 

The video streaming service is in the early stages of developing a live action series based on “Zelda,” about an ordinary boy named Link who must rescue a princess named Zelda and save a fantasy world called Hyrule,

 

As it seeks writers to work on the show, Netflix is describing it as Game of Thrones for a family audience.

 

Netflix is said to be working closely with Nintendo, the Japanese game developer that has made about 20 “The Legend of Zelda” games since the original, which was released in the U.S. in 1987.

 

As it is still seeking a writer to work on the series, Netflix has a long road to travel before a “Legend of Zelda” series actually becomes a reality. It’s also possible that Netflix or Nintendo will kill the project before it gets off the ground.

A Netflix spokeswoman declined to comment. A Nintendo spokesman said the company “doesn’t comment on rumors and speculation.”

Jon Stewart done

 

After 16 years as the host of the Daily Show Jon Stewart will be leaving. Word got out today when the audience started tweeting out that he had just told them he was leaving.



Spider-Man is home:

Sony and Marvle have reached a deal that will let the web slinger join the MCU.

Sony keeps the rights however Marvel will be heavily involved in the new story line of the wall crawler! Garfiled will not be back as Peter Parker/Spider-man.

 

This move will shake the MCU up a bit. 4 Movies have shifted dates to make room for the next Spider-man. Look for him to appear 1st in Cap 3! (Rumor has it). I vote Marvel go nuts and find a way to add him into the cut scene in Avengers Age of Ultron!

Suck on this!

Never fall asleep when there’s a robot vacuum cleaner in the room or you’ll possibly end up like this woman.

The 52-year-old, from Changwon city, South Korea, had to call emergency services after the machine hoovered up 5cm of her hair, which resulted in her getting stuck, according to the Guardian.

Firefighters responding to the unnamed woman’s ‘desperate pleas’ were eventually able to free her.

Luckily she didn’t suffer any injuries but her ego would have been bruised after these images of her on the floor emerged.

We have no doubt she’ll switch off the programmed machine next time she decides to have a nap.

Cops seeking suspect find him after his Greyhound bus selfie

 

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police caught up to a man trying to flee assault charges because he posted a selfie on Facebook while sitting on a Greyhound bus out of town, a police chief said Tuesday.

"We like it when dumb criminals assist us in our investigation," Ambridge police Chief James Mann told the Beaver County Times, which first reported the arrest.

Mann told The Associated Press that the suspect, 22-year-old Donald Harrison, had been living in the borough about 20 miles northwest of Pittsburgh when he was charged with assaulting a woman and refusing to let her leave her apartment after an argument on Jan. 24.

An hour after the woman called police, police learned that Harrison, who is originally from Spartansburg, South Carolina, posted the Facebook message, "IT'S TIME TO LEAVE PA."

Police couldn't find him right away, but Mann said the woman called him Sunday afternoon after she noticed the Facebook selfie with the message saying, "OMW TO SPARTANSBURG SC SAY A PRAYER FOR ME."

Mann said the picture appeared to show Harrison sitting in a bus or airplane and, acting on a hunch, he called the Greyhound bus terminal in Pittsburgh and learned a bus to Spartansburg had left 15 minutes earlier. After learning it would stop in Youngstown, Ohio, Mann explained the situation to Greyhound and arranged for Youngstown police to arrest Harrison on a warrant he faxed them.

"I guess when the bus pulled in they instructed the driver to keep the door shut until police got there, and the rest is history," Mann said. "We've been on 'World's Dumbest Criminals' for a couple of things, but his actions certainly qualifies for another episode" of the reality show on truTV.

The show focuses on the dumb but funny things criminal suspects sometimes do that get themselves caught. But Mann said there's nothing funny about what Harrison allegedly did to the victim.

Among other things, Harrison body-slammed her several times during the 12-hour ordeal before he left, and she has several fractured vertebrae, Mann said.

As a result, police expect to add a charge of aggravated assault when he is extradited from Ohio later this week.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Harrison, who is charged with simple assault, unlawful restraint and reckless endangerment, among other charges.



 75-year-old man tackles suspect, threatens to break his arm

 

WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) — A 75-year-old man helped in the arrest of a shoplifting suspect at a Pennsylvania mall by tackling him and threatening to break his arm if he tried to escape.

Charlie Burton, of Fombell, says he was a vendor at the Washington Crown Center mall for a gun show when he saw an officer struggling with the suspect, 29-year-old Jonathan Fekete Jr.

Police say Fekete was trying to get away after taking $200 worth of clothes from a Macy's store Saturday.

Burton says he ran over to help, grabbed the man's arms and forced him down. Burton says, "He started hollering his arm hurt, and I said, 'Quit struggling or I'll break the thing.'"

Fekete is jailed. Court records don't list an attorney.




Exercise in a Bottle? Nestlé Is Working on a Fat-Burning Drink

 

potato’s fantasies might be coming true: Exercise in a bottle.

Nestlé — the makers of candy bars, chocolate milk, cookie dough and Nespresso coffee capsules — is brewing a fat-burning beverage, reportsBloomberg.

The world’s biggest food company says it has identified how an enzyme in charge of regulating metabolism can be stimulated by a compound called C13, a potential first step in developing a way to mimic the fat-burning effect of exercise.

The goal in developing the drink — which eight scientists at the Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences in Switzerland are working on — is to help people who can’t tolerate or continue intense exercise, like those with limited mobility due to old age, obesity or diabetes, all of whom would benefit from even just light exercise.

“Instead of 20 minutes of jogging or 40 minutes of cycling, it may help boost metabolism with moderate exercise like brisk walking,” said Kei Sakamoto, the scientist who oversees research on diabetes and circadian rhythms at Nestlé. “They’d get similar effects with less strain.”

KFC: 'Brain' found by teen was safe to eat

STOCKTON, Calif., Feb. 10 (UPI) -- KFC said a "brain" found by a California teenager in his meal was actually a gizzard or a kidney, but the company agreed to refund the teen's $4.

Manuel Cobarubies, a Stockton High School student, said he frequented his local KFC until early February, when he discovered the unidentified chicken organ in his $4 meal.

"[It looked] like a brain to me. I mean at that point, red flags were kind of raised," Cobarubiestold KTXL-TV. "I ended up spitting it in the trash can because I get grossed out by that."

Cobarubies tweeted a picture of the object and tagged KFC in the hopes of getting an explanation and a refund, but all he received was a brief apology.

KTXL-TV tweeted at KFC and contacted the corporate office Monday, and hours later Cobarubies received a call from Richard Ramos, a KFC area consultant. Ramos said the object was not a brain, but rather a gizzard or a kidney and is safe to eat.

The teenager said Ramos told him he will receive his $4 refund. The consultant said cooks would be trained to ensure they are preparing the chicken correctly, but Cobarubies said he is probably through with the restaurant.

"I'm probably just going to have to start packing my own meals, making my own sandwiches," he said.
