Trump’s high-stakes nuclear poker tactics on full display:

President Donald Trump is turning two crucial foreign policy dramas — over the Iran deal and a startling opening on the Korean peninsula — into one big game of televised nuclear poker.

He’s concealing his hand, but constantly raising the stakes. He’s dripping tantalizing details out bit by bit, stoking expectations and speculation about his next moves.
“We’ll see what happens,” Trump said Monday regarding his decision expected in two weeks about whether to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. “I’m not telling you what I’m doing, but a lot of people think they know. And on or before the 12th, we’ll make a decision.”

Ashley Judd suit claims Harvey Weinstein ‘torpedoed’ career:

Actress Ashley Judd has sued Harvey Weinstein, alleging the disgraced former film executive made inflammatory statements about her that hurt her career, according to court documents obtained by CNN.

Judd’s suit alleges that Weinstein deterred director Peter Jackson, who oversaw the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, and his producing partner Fran Walsh from working with Judd on the films, a move that not only “torpedoed” her opportunity to star in the Academy Award-winning franchise but also cost her additional work.
She claims to have met with Jackson and Walsh in or around 1998 to discuss two different roles in the film, but the pair “dropped their pursuit” of her for the project after Weinstein told them the studio had “a bad experience” working with Judd, according to the lawsuit.

Sports may be a great way to keep kids active, but a new study of players finds that the earlier players with CTE started tackle football, the more vulnerable they were to emotional and cognitive problems.

Researchers from the Boston University School of Medicine and VA Boston Healthcare System studied nearly 250 football players, of whom 211 were diagnosed with CTE after their death. CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, is a degenerative brain disease that often starts after repeated head trauma. Earlier studies have shown that the brain may change even after one hard hit.
