I'm Kat Curtis, you're watching Naked News. Madison is back, Eila's ALSO back, at the Canadian International Auto Show. Watch for her report shortly in Wheelz.
Right now though, Carli Bei has the news that EVERYONE is talking about including details on a deadly bacteria outbreak in Louisiana. Here she is with a NN Bulletin.
A lethal type of bacteria that lives in soil and water has been released from the Tulane National Primate Research Center in Louisiana. Thing is, after weeks of investigating, authorities still aren't sure HOW the deadly strain was released from the high-security lab. Officials stress there is no risk to the public. Researchers at the lab - located 35 miles north of New Orleans - had been working on a vaccine to combat the bacteria.
California border authorities made one of the biggest marijuana busts in US history last week. A truck claiming to be carrying pillows and mattresses was found stashed with 15 tons of pot. Customs and Border Police at the checkpoint ordered the truck into a cargo bay for X-rays and then found the haul. The truck was packed from floor to ceiling with the illicit cargo, which carried an estimated street value close to 20 million dollars.
And a sketch broadcast on this weekend's edition of Saturday Night Live has sparked MAJOR controversy online. It featured host Dakota Johnson playing a young woman being dropped off at the airport by her father, played by Taran Killam. Have a look.
Perhaps not too surprisingly, a sketch about a father dropping his daughter off to join ISIS militants didn't go over too well with the general public. While the studio audience found the bit funny, the Twitterverse was not amused. The ISIS-inspired bit outraged many who feel SNL took things too far. I'm Carli Bei. Don't go away.
Welcome inside Sports. Ronda Rousey continues to prove why she's the BADDEST woman on the planet! She needed just FOURTEEN SECONDS to retain her bantamweight title at UFC 184 in Los Angeles. Rousey's armbar submission of Cat Zingano was the FASTEST finish in UFC championship history. You have to wonder how long it will be before she takes on a man in the octagon!
Chelsea captured the Capital One Cup on Sunday – defeating Tottenham two to nothing. It's the Blues' FIFTH League Cup victory and the FIRST silverware for Jose Mourinho since returning to the team.
In Premier League action, Liverpool toppled Manchester City two to one thanks to Philippe Coutinho's winner in the 75th minute. And Arsenal rebounding from that disastrous showing against Monaco in the Champions League - blanked Everton two to nothing to reclaim third place.
Rafael Nadal also lifted some hardware over the weekend. He won the Argentina Open for his first title in nearly NINE months. Nadal defeated Juan Monaco in straight sets, six-four, six-one. It's the 46th career title for the Spaniard on clay – he needs just three more to tie the all-time record.
Jimmie Johnson took care of business at Atlanta Motor Speedway, earning his first victory of the season and the 71st of his career. Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano led for 84 of the first 89 laps, but struggled down the stretch and ended up in fourth place. Kevin Harvick and Dale Earnhardt Jr finished on the podium in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.
And Marshawn Lynch has FINALLY spoken out about the Seattle Seahawks' final offensive play in Super Bowl 49. The notoriously tight-lipped running back told a Turkish sports network that he was expecting to get the ball – but Russell Wilson threw an interception instead. Lynch actually gave a thoughtful, lengthy response. It'd be somewhat ironic if he got fined for speaking his mind, am I right?
That's all for Naked Sports. I'm Natasha Olenski.
A big thanks to Natasha for the sports roundup. Now let's shift gears and bring you the latest from the automotive industry! Consumer Reports has named its favorite cars for 2015, and Eila's here to shine a spotlight on a few of the very best!
Consumer Reports is a go-to source for smart auto buyers, and when they release their annual picks, people listen! To make the list a car has to get top scores in performance tests AND be above average in the safety department. These are the rides that stood out the most!
The big winner this year - like last year - is the Tesla Model S! It was once-again named the Best Overall car! The mag calls the Model S "a technological tour de force". And if you've ever seen the inside of one, then you know what they mean. And despite being all-electric it still packs plenty of punch, especially with the new Insane Mode feature! The Model S retails for about 90,000 dollars.
In the compact category, Consumer Reports was extra-impress'ad with the Subaru Impreza! They called the 2015 model, the perfect starter car. For around 20,000 dollars, you get a roomy interior, a smooth ride, and a great entertainment system. It doesn't get the BEST marks for fuel efficiency, but keep in mind that you're getting all-wheel drive capabilities with this one.
Here's a pick that NO ONE saw coming. CR's top choice for sports sedan is... the Buick Regal?! Hard to believe in a category normally dominated by German products - sorry BMW! The Regal's surprising nimbleness is thanks to Opel engineering under the hood, so there is still a European influence here. Consumer Reports says that if you close your eyes you'd think you were driving a higher-end Audi sports car. That's some high praise. But a quick word of advice: closing your eyes while driving? Not the best idea!
Speaking of Audi, the A6 model took home top honors in the Luxury Car category. The A6 wowed testers with its lively engine and exquisite handling. And it wouldn't be in the "luxury" department if the interior didn't impress. It has all the technological gadgets you'd expect with an elegant design. Prices starting in the mid-fifty thousand range make the A6 surprisingly good value for a luxury vehicle.
So there you have it - the best new rides no matter WHAT price range you're in! Ok, let's finish up with a trip to the Canadian International Auto Show. I spoke with Ford's Director of Product Marketing, Bill Rowe, about the INCREDIBLE, mind blowing, heart MELTING, 2016 Ford GT. Have a look.
A truly incredible ride! The new GT can't come out soon enough! That's all for Wheelz, I hope you enjoyed the ride! Take care. WALK
It was a record-breaking February, weather-wise, and for much of the US east coast the forecast isn't looking much better in early March! Much of New England is expecting four to six inches of snow, with even more coming to Northern Massachusetts and New York State. The city of Boston is just 6 inches shy of its twenty-year old seasonal record for snowfall, having already gotten 102 inches of the white stuff. If there's a silver lining to all this, it's that temperatures in the northeast will be in the upper twenties and lower thirties - much warmer than the subzero conditions many endured last month.
As brutally cold as it was in the eastern half of the US in February, it was also a record-setting month for WARM temperatures in the west! More than twenty cities broke marks for the warmest meteorological winter according to the Weather Channel. San Francisco, Salt Lake City, and Seattle were among the major cities to enjoy unseasonably balmy conditions.
We'll finish up with some big news on the tech front; Samsung has unveiled its new Galaxy S6 models at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona. There are TWO S6 models - one with a standard flat screen and the other - the Galaxy S6 Edge - with a curved display... and what a display it is! The new phones boast some of the most pixel-dense screens to date. Both models are also a hair thinner than Apple's iPhone 6. Unlike earlier versions, Samsung has ditched its external memory card options in favor of fixed memory phones. Consumers have the choice of 32, 64, and 128 gigabyte versions. WATCH out Apple. From the Naked Newsroom, I'm Carli Bei.
Thanks very much, Carli. Still on the way we've got our latest and VERY sexy guest anchor, Madison. If you've ever wanted to go Naked At The Movies with her, then I suggested you keep watching.
Right NOW though, let's say hello to our Naked Foodie, Peyton Priestly! You know I love chocolate Peyton so I'm a little worried about this whole "NESTLE" making some changes to their American chocolate!
I know, I know but you have nothing to worry about Kat, the changes are POSITIVE and will benefit EVERYONE who eats their chocolate. Here's what's going on.
The Swiss chocolate-maker announced that they're going to replace their artificial flavors and colors with NATURAL ingredients. Seventy-five of their recipes affecting over two hundred and fifty of their chocolates will be affected. The new-ingredient products will roll out in the next few months. So WHY the change you ask? According to their market research, Americans didn't want the fake ingredients. Simple enough right!
Over in the UK, the Lord Nelson pub in Brighton has whipped up a MONSTER of a burger. Nelson's Column is built with three 8 ounce patties, twelve bacon slices, six slices of cheddar, and five onion rings, plus mayo, tomato, and lettuce, on a brioche bun. A pound each of fries and coleslaw, plus pickles on the sides. The ten thousand, five hundred calorie belly-buster costs forty-six dollars with profits to charity, or FREE if you finish it all - but nobody has!
Sriracha continues to be the HOTTEST taste in sauces - no pun intended. Now, Heinz has announced that they'll be launching a Sriracha-infused ketchup. The new flavor will be blended with the now-ubiquitous Thai-inspired chili pepper-garlic-vinegar blend. Chains including Taco Bell, Applebees, and Jack In The Box are already incorporating the tasty sauce into their OWN their condiments.
And finally, KFC has announced a new concept that will be both delicious AND environmentally sound - edible coffee cups! They're known as "Scoffee" cups, and they're made out of cup-shaped cookies that are lined with white chocolate, and coated with sugar paper. So when the coffee is finished, there's a delicious chocolate-coated treat that doesn't go into the garbage bin. So far, they're only planned as a limited offering in the UK, but don't you worry, this is going WORLD WIDE, I hope!
For Naked News, I'm Peyton Priestly. Bon appetit!
I'm Madison, let's go NAKED AT THE MOVIES
Chris Pratt is currently on an EPIC roll. The Lego Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy were massive hits. Jurassic World is coming out in June, and The Magnificent Seven is in pre-production. NOW, Steven Spielberg says that he'd like Pratt to star in a new INDIANA JONES series! It's apparently all still in the VERY early stages, with no contracts or final script yet, but reports indicate that Spielberg himself would direct.
And the ORIGINAL Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford, has been CONFIRMED to appear in the upcoming sequel to 1982’s Blade Runner. He’ll reprise his role as Rick Deckard with the Ridley Scott, the original director, set to executive produce. Reports have award-winning Canadian director Denis Villeneuve in talks to helm the project, which begins filming next year.
Nicolas Cage has signed on for a role in Snowden, Oliver Stone’s biopic about US whistleblower EDWARD Snowden. Cage is set to portray a former Intelligence officer, opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the title role. There’s plenty MORE high-level talent on board including Shailene Woodley, Zachary Quinto, Timothy Olyphant, and Scott Eastwood. The film is currently shooting, and is scheduled to be released this December.
Paramount Pictures is clearly expecting July’s Terminator Genisys to be a hit, because they’ve already slated release dates for TWO sequels. The second flick would hit screens in May of 2017, and the third in June of 2018. The best part? Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed on for both.
Now here's a preview for the next edition of the Fast and Furious franchise – Furious 7. I think it’s safe to say that it’s going to give the series’ fans EXACTLY what they love about these flicks: fast cars, cool characters, and INSANE action.
Furious 7 brings back main stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, and Paul Walker in his final role. There’s a revenge plot, but really, does it matter? Things go boom, cars go zoom, and it’s as stylish as they come. Furious 7 hits theaters April 3. For Naked at the Movies, I’m Madison.
Thanks Madison, she's totally sexy isn't she! Anyway, it's time to announce the winner of latest caption contest. The pic showed Carli and Eila having a little stretching fun, and our favorite caption was from David Blair, who entered "Practicing for 'Naked Stars on Ice'"
Good one David and congratulations! You know, with all the snow and ice outside our studios right now, we're pretty much performing Stars on Ice just trying to get into the building! Send us a private message on Facebook and we'll mail you your copy of Bruce Colero's super-sexy Sirens calendar. There's a NEW caption contest up right now, so go to facebook.com/nakednews to enter your best caption. This week's winner gets an autographed photo!
It's going to be another GREAT week here at the double-N. As you just saw, guest anchor Madison is back and we've got another great audition for you as well. Plus, Versus Ball Hockey this weekend. Eila, myself, Whitney, Carli, Angie AND Natasha are all involved. I don't think I need to tell you this is must see TV.
One last thing, we've got a special program lined up for you tomorrow. Rather then our normal daily fare, we're going to broadcast a Best Of April Torres. For those of you not in the know, April made a HUGE impact on this program for many many years so we think you're really going to enjoy it. I'm Katherine Curtis. See you back again tomorrow!
