If you have ever been fooled by a fake twitter account, you know how embarrassing it can be.

Monday, with the frantic feel of “Black Monday” around the NFL, there was plenty of back and forth among some of the NFL’s biggest reporters trying to get on top of the news, which seemed to break by the minute.

One outlet that didn’t do its homework Monday and got fooled in the process was ESPN, who took a tweet from who they thought was their own Adam Schefter and put it out there for all to see.

Only it wasn’t the real Schefter.


In a previous ONT we covered the wonderful, intelligent, nimble thinking FDA. Not only that, they are able to to pull their head out of their ass.

FDA Reverses Decision To Fine Distilleries That Produced Hand Sanitizer Amid COVID Chaos

The Food and Drug Administration announced late last week that it reversed its position and will not seek to charge distillers, who shifted to making hand sanitizer amid coronavirus-driven shortages, a $14,000 fine for operating as “drug facilities.”

Distillers, many of whom are suffering because of coronavirus-related lockdowns, received letters from the FDA in late December demanding $14,060 in fees for operating as “monograph drug facilities” — a new class of over-the-counter drug producers outlined in the CARES coronavirus relief act passed in May. Distilleries that produced any amount of sanitizer, for any price (or even those who gave the sanitizer away for free to needy medical facilities) were on the hook for the fine.


Don't be shocked, but it looks like the Federal Bureau of Incompetence (FBI) knows how to file a valid search warrant application.

According to a new court document revealed by the Daily Beast, however, the FBI was able to track down the accused child sex-trafficker using a "stingray" device to track down her mobile phone.

Before the feds busted Ghislaine Maxwell, they tracked her to a New Hampshire hideaway using her cellphone data, according to a newly unsealed court filing.

The British socialite and accused accomplice of sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein had opened a mobile account under the name “G Max” and used it to communicate with phones belonging to her rumored husband Scott Borgerson, her sister Isabel, and one of her lawyers, Laura Menninger, the document states. -Daily Beast

The filing - an affidavit in support of a search warrant application, was filed by the FBI on July 1, 2020, the day before Maxwell was arrested at her Bradford mansion. She stands accused of grooming three girls as young as 14-years-old for Epstein in the mid-1990s as part of an international sex-trafficking operation that lasted for years. Maxwell faces trial this summer.


Radical feminism is the same everywhere. Enormous vulva sculpture in Brazil sparks conservative outrage

We are less than a week into the new year, but the prize for 2021's most controversial public sculpture might have already been claimed by a newly installed 33m-high concrete crimson vulva in Brazil, which has sparked fierce online debate.

Recessed onto a hillside within a sculpture park in the northeastern state of Pernambuco, Diva, by the Brazilian artist Juliana Notari, intends to question the "problematisation of gender" and change perspectives on human relationships that create an "unequal and catastrophic world", Notari states in a Facebook post.

She adds that these issues are "increasingly urgent", referring to the country's political climate under the leadership of President Jair Bolsonaro. Last week, following Argentina's decision to legalise abortion, Bolsonaro expressed sympathies via Twitter for the lives of Argentine children "now subject to being cut in their mothers' wombs with state consent" and vowed to never approve abortion in Brazil.
