"The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board agreed with our clients that the team's name and trademarks disparage Native Americans. The Board ruled that the Trademark Office should never have registered these trademarks in the first place," Jesse Witten, the plaintiffs' lead attorney, said in a press release. "We presented a wide variety of evidence – including dictionary definitions and other reference works, newspaper clippings, movie clips, scholarly articles, expert linguist testimony, and evidence of the historic opposition by Native American groups – to demonstrate that the word 'redskin' is an ethnic slur."
The team will appeal the case, according to a statement from its attorney, and it will be able to keep its trademark protection during appeal. Further, losing the trademark would not force the team to change its name.
Here's one suggestion:

Do you wanna build a snowman, in jail?

The Harlan City Police Department in Kentucky issued an arrest warrant on Wednesday (via Facebook) for Queen Elsa from “Frozen,” blaming her on all the terrible weather.

All points bulletin!!! HPD has issued an arrest warrant for Queen Elsa of Arendelle. Suspect is a blonde female last seen wearing a long blue dress and is known to burst into song “Let it Go!” As you can see by the weather she is very dangerous. Do not attempt to apprehend her alone.



A few weeks ago, a police department in New Hampshire pulled a similar stunt, but targeting the famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil who predicted 6 more weeks of winter.

The Harlan police have since gotten quite a bit of media attention and were a bit surprised.

“Wow. We were just having a little fun and didn’t expect this,” they said. “But as a reminder, do take the precautions you need to keep you, your friends, family, neighbors and pets safe during the snow queen’s mad spell.”

In all seriousness, the abnormally cold weather is starting to get really old Mother Nature.

Hopefully the CIA will be able to locate the evil mastermind soon and put an end to all of this nonsense.

From the New York Times:

A Russian beverage company said on Thursday that it was acquiring the Pabst Brewing Company, which makes the Pabst Blue Ribbon beer popular with barflies and hipsters alike and other brands like Colt 45 and Old Milwaukee.

The company did not disclose terms of the transaction, but people briefed on the matter said the price was more than $700 million in cash.

The buyer is Oasis Beverages, a Russian brewer and beverages distributor. Backing Oasis is TSG Consumer Partners, an American private equity firm focused on consumer goods, which will take a minority stake.
