I'm Angie Heyward, THIS is Naked News. What's everyone talking about today? March Madness of course and for the latest action let's say hello to Natasha Olenski. Way to make an entrance! I hear you were glued to the couch all day Sunday Nat!
I was - it was pure heaven for hoops junkies this weekend! Sunday's games were TOTAL nailbiters!
So are there any Cinderella teams in this year's Final Four?
Not quite - it's all about the blue blood programs. Let me get to the Sports set and I'll break it down for you!
WELCOME TO MY NAKED SPORTS REPORT!
The Michigan State Spartans did their best Gerard Butler in "300" impression to beat Louisville 76-70 in an overtime THRILLER. March Madness? This is Sparta! They'll meet Duke in the Final Four after the Blue Devils trio of freshman starters defeated Gonzaga 66 to 52. You might well get deja vu watching the other semi-final. The Wisconsin Badgers will try to tame the undefeated 38-0 Kentucky Wildcats for the second year running. Three of the Final Four are ranked number one regionally, leaving Michigan State hoping they can be the lucky number seventh seed from the East.
Now to the world of motor sports, where two streaks came to a thrilling end. In Formula One, Sebastian Vettel took Ferrari to the top of the podium for the first time in 34 races at the Malaysian Grand Prix. Vettel paid an emotional tribute to his 'hero' Michael Schumacher after his maiden victory in the fiery red of Ferrari. The German is waging a world war against Britain's Lewis Hamilton, although don't worry, this one is taking place on the track for the F1 crown.
Now to NASCAR, where Denny Hamlin ended Toyota's 32-race winless run to take the checkered flag at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia. This was Hamlin's 25th career victory and fifth on NASCAR's oldest and smallest circuit. I guess the old ads are actually true: the car in front really is a Toyota!
Now for something you don't normally see in Naked Sports: cricket! The World Cup is officially over and the Aussies won it in style. They easily bowled New Zealand over by seven wickets to lift the World Cup for a record fifth time. No other country has won more than two! Very impressive, fellas! Now all they have to do is get the rest of the world to care about cricket and they'll be doing just fine.
And finally, we're sad to say there doesn't seem to be much roar left in Tiger Woods. The 14-time major winner has dropped out of the world's top 100 golfers for the first time since September 1996! Yes, the world's most dominant swinger can no longer get it up and down like he used to. For the first time in his illustrious career, it's Tiger's driving ON the course that's giving him so much trouble. And at age 39, it could be all downhill from here.
With your Naked Sports Report, I'm Natasha Olenski.
I'm Scarlette, it's good to be back. Thousands stormed the streets of Indiana's capital over the weekend to protest a new law critics say promotes discrimination against gay people. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act was passed last Thursday by Governor Mike Pence. It allows businesses to deny service to certain customers based on store owners' religious beliefs. Protesters carrying rainbow flags and signs with slogans like "No Hate In Our State" flooded downtown Indianapolis to make their voices heard.
The US Army has issued new guidelines to its soldiers after a group linked to ISIS posted the personal details of about one hundred servicemen and women online. Soldiers are advised to be careful about the details they put on their Facebook and Twitter feeds, and to avoid meeting people they've only chatted with online. The Army says the leak is in retaliation for air strikes in Iraq and Syria.
And MegaUpload founder Kim Dotcom has suffered another major setback in court. The US government won its civil forfeiture case against the 41-year old web mogul, seizing 67 million dollars worth of assets in cash, property, luxury cars, and much more. The US has also seized more than a dozen of his bank accounts in New Zealand and Hong Kong. Dotcom is wanted by the American government due to alleged copyright infringements through his MegaUpload file-sharing service. He lives in New Zealand and has never lived, worked, or traveled in the US.
His legal team says it won't hold up in a New Zealand courtroom, Angie, and they plan on appealing.
The United States government REALLY wants this guy don't they!
Oh you have NO idea! The best it yet to come though because Dotcom and other defendants have an extradition hearing coming up in June. If they LOSE, they could be tried on US soil.
And THAT'S when the REAL fireworks will begin! Thanks for the update Scarlette!
She'll be back a little later with more headlines.
I understand you've got some good news for fans of one time action star Steven Seagal!
We haven't heard THAT name in a while have we Angie! He was HUGE in the eighties and early nineties, and now the martial arts star is making a comeback on the silver screen!
Welcome to Naked At The Movies. Steven Seagal is BACK! The longtime ass-kicker will play a Special Forces colonel in Code Of Honor. Tell me if this sounds familiar, Seagal's character returns from a tour in the middle east and discovers he's the only guy who can take out a horde of murderers and narco-terrorists. There's no release date just yet but it's currently filming in Salt Lake City.
Substitute Teacher, one of the most popular sketches on Comedy Central's Key and Peele, has been picked up by Paramount Pictures. It'll star Keegan-Michael Key as Mr. Garvey, the former inner-city teacher with a major distrust of his students. It's not a big surprise that Substitute Teacher is headed for the big screen. The sketch's first video has racked up over seventy-three million views on YouTube.
Eddie Murphy is reportedly in talks to join the cast of director Lee Daniels' upcoming biography of comedian Richard Pryor. "Is It Something I Said" will star Mike Epps as Pryor, with Oprah Winfrey on board as Pryor's grandmother, and Kate Hudson as his wife. Murphy would portray LeRoy Pryor, Richard's father. There have been several attempts to make Pryor biopics but they've fizzled over the years. We'll see how this one goes.
Warner Brothers has set a release date of June 17 of next year for the buddy flick Central Intelligence. The comedy stars red-hot Kevin Hart and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as former high school classmates who reunite years later via Facebook. Hart plays an accountant who gets wrangled into a high-stakes espionage plot via Johnson's CIA contract killer. It sounds hilarious.
Now, let's have an early look at the new trailer for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt in this fifth installment of the franchise.
Cruise is 52, but he doesn't look to be slowing down at all - apparently he really WAS hanging off the side of that plane. Ving Rhames, Jeremy Renner, and Simon Pegg co-star, along with the very sexy Rebecca Ferguson. Mission Impossible Rogue Nation hits theaters July 31. For Naked Nerws, I'm Madison.
I'm Eila Adams, in this weeks Wheelz. "Range anxiety" is a big concern for Tesla owners, since early models get just 208 miles per charge. But CEO Elon Musk is putting those fears to rest with a SOFTWARE update! Firmware version 6.2 includes two new apps called Range Assurance and Trip Planner. Range Assurance factors in all sorts of variables like wind speed, elevation, driving speed, and outdoor temperature to figure out exactly how far the car's battery can take you. Trip Planner arranges your route so you're never too far from a charging station. Together the apps make it virtually impossible to run out of battery life unintentionally.
Hertz has come under fire for installing cameras inside their vehicles! Since 2014, many Hertz cars have been outfitted with an in-car navigation system, which seems handy enough, until you notice the tiny camera lens in the top right corner! The discovery has outraged privacy groups who say the company is taking things too far. Hertz claims the cameras are never turned on, and were only intended for live interaction between the company and driver when the car's parked. About 20-percent of the cars have the camera.
What's cooler than a hundred-year old motorcycle once owned by film legend Steve McQueen? Nothing, that's what. And that's why it sold for 775,000 dollars at auction! The Cyclone Board Track Racer might not LOOK like a speed machine, but this model set a record in 1914 when it hit a top speed of 111 miles per hour! It was scooped up in a 1984 auction a few years after McQueen's death and has since been restored. The record for the most expensive motorcycle ever sold is owned by Peter Fonda's chopper from Easy Rider, which went for 1.35 million this past October.
And for the very first time, Lamborghini brought its awesome "Winter Accademia" snow show to North America! It's normally held in the Italian Alps, but this year Aspen Colorado was the site where the uber-rich got the chance to blast 400,000 dollar supercars around snow-covered tracks. About 19 millionaires paid 6000 bucks apiece for a weekend at "Aspen Motorsports Park". Surprisingly, some said the Lambos handled as well as 4 by 4 pickup trucks on the icy terrain. I'd take that assessment with a grain of salt though.
Now let's head back to the Canadian International Auto Show, where I've got the inside track on the awesome new Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG.
It's definitely a ride that stands out - IF you can afford the hefty price tag! That'll do it for this edition of Wheelz! I'm Eila Adams and I hope YOU enjoyed the ride!
It was a spring break to remember for all the WRONG reasons in Panama City Beach Florida. Seven college-aged people were wounded in a shooting in the popular student party town. Police arrested a 22-year old male suspect but did not mention a possible motive. Panama City Beach - which has a population of just 12,000 people - has been dubbed the "Spring Break Capital of the World". Up to 6 million college students flock to the coastal region during the months of February and March each year.
Two more women have forward to accuse comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault. Sunni Welles and Margie Shapiro have joined the list of more than three-dozen women to accuse the 77-year old Cosby of sex crimes. Both women claim Cosby drugged and raped them. The alleged incidents took place decades ago when they were in their teens. The Cosby camp has declined to comment on this latest round of allegations.
And if you thought winter was over? Think again! The eastern US will be hit with yet another blast of icy temperatures this week. The mercury will fall 10 to 15 degrees below seasonal averages. Areas as far south as Alabama and Georgia could feel the chill of the jet stream, which will move east later in the week. This winter truly has been one of the worst EVER. If current trends hold, Boston will set a new record for the coldest February-through-March period in 130 years. This is ON TOP of their record snowfall! For Naked News, I'm Scarlette!
Restaurants USUALLY serve perfect, beautifully-presented meals. Unfortunately, that results in a LOT Of waste as imperfect veggies, bones, and end-bits of meat get discarded. Popup "WastED" is USING those items, with the help of of top chefs including Dominique Ansel, Alain Ducasse, and Mario Batali. The menu includes "Cornell dropout squash", "reject carrot mustard", and "dumpster dive vegetable salad". It's been a HUGE success and runs until the end of March!
Twenty-eight California wineries have been accused of having unsafe levels of ARSENIC in their wines. According to a lawsuit, the brands, including Sutter Home, Fetzer, Beringer, and Mogen David, contain up to twenty parts per billion, double the Environmental Protection Agency's standard for drinking water. The Wine Institute, representing California wineries, disputes the lawsuit's claim that the level is a public health concern. For comparison, Canada permits up to a hundred parts per billion of arsenic, and some countries allow even more.
Meat-eaters take note - the use of antibiotics in animal farming is SKYROCKETING. Antibiotics are routinely given to cattle, chickens, and pigs to fatten them up more quickly, and to keep them from getting sick. And now that demand for meat is rising, mostly due to increased interest in China, the drugs are being administered even more. Scientists say that all the exposure to antibiotics in meat is leading to antibiotic-RESISTANT superbugs affecting humans.
And if you don't really care what you eat, then say hello to Taco Bell's new breakfast item, Biscuit Tacos. They're pretty much exactly what they sound like - taco shell-shaped buttermilk biscuits holding crispy chicken with jalapeno honey or country gravy, or egg and cheese with bacon or sausage. Taco Bell is hoping to boost breakfast sales, which account for only about six percent of their sales. Sad news for waffle fans, though - the Biscuit Tacos are replacing the chain's waffle tacos.
Finally, West London restaurant Studio Kitchen has created what looks like a mouth watering, one of a kind, "Creme Egg" Burger, just in time for Easter. The sliders are made with a sweet brioche bun that's dunked in white chocolate and garnished with sprinkles. The "burger" is a melted Cadbury Creme Egg, and it's topped with mascarpone cream "cheese" and strawberry jelly "ketchup". They cost about eight fifty for two. You'll you'll probably want to share though because each one is over five hundred calories. For the Naked Foodie, I'm Peyton Priestly. Bon appetit!
Thanks, Peyton! I'm going into sugar shock just HEARING about that Creme Egg burger! Anyway, that brings us to the winner of this week's caption contest. The pic was of our guest anchor Raymi kicking it on the drums. Our favorite caption came from Chris Walterhouse who submitted
"Beat them like they owe you money!" Nice one Chris. Send us a private message through Facebook, and we'll arrange to get you your prize. There's also a new caption contest up now at facebook.com/ nakednews.
We've got lots to look forward to this week including a new guest anchor tomorrow. She's back by popular demand. Pus we have another new audition coming your way on Friday. GOOD Friday that is! And because we're working, we'll actually be taking THURSDAY off. So watch for a classic show hosted from the beach, all the way back in 2006. Take care everyone and we'll see you back here tomorrow.
