Bill Cosby learns today whether he’ll go to prison:

Bill Cosby will have a final opportunity to make his case to the court on Tuesday before a Pennsylvania judge sentences him on three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

Montgomery County prosecutors asked a judge on Monday to sentence Cosby to five to 10 years in prison for the 2004 sexual assault of Andrea Constand, saying he had shown “no remorse” for his actions.
“He seemingly thinks that he hasn’t done anything wrong. The jury thinks otherwise,” District Attorney Kevin Steele said.
“This is about a person who put himself in a situation of being a mentor, but we know he had other intentions just from the beginning,” he added.
However, Cosby’s defense attorney, Joseph P. Green, asked for a sentence of house arrest, citing Cosby’s advanced age and blindness.

Kavanaugh the politician takes charge of floundering campaign:

Brett Kavanaugh looked less like a Supreme Court justice than an ordinary political candidate whose campaign is on the skids, mired in scandal as he battles to keep his hopes of high office alive.

With his wife Ashley by his side, Kavanaugh seized control of his own defense against allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct that are threatening to overwhelm his hopes of joining the bench.

iPhone XS and XS Max review: Apple’s latest are the best yet. But do you need them?:

Each year, Apple CEO Tim Cook calls the next-generation iPhones the best ever made.

The company’s 2018 lineup, specifically the iPhone XS and XS Max, delivers on that promise: They’re the smartest, fastest, best iPhones we’ve seen to date

But at this point, buying an updated iPhone is like getting a new Ferrari — you’ll find a faster engine, a new coat of paint, and a few new bells and whistles, but beneath all that it’s still basically the same car you could have bought last year. And just like that new Ferrari, these new iPhones are going to cost you a lot of money.

Florida Democratic congressional candidate dies unexpectedly:

April Freeman, the Democratic congressional candidate in Florida’s 17th District, died Sunday night, her husband announced on Facebook Monday.

Freeman was running for the seat being vacated by Republican Rep. Tom Rooney in a district south of Orlando and Tampa that President Donald Trump won by 27 percentage points in 2016.
“Its (sic) with great sadness that I feel I must inform all of you that my beloved wife April passed away suddenly last night. To all of her family and friends here on Facebook, my heart aches with you,” the social media post from her husband reads.
Further information on Freeman’s death was not immediately available


5 games to ramp up your tailgating fun:

It’s that time of year again: Fans across the US are rejoicing the return of football season.

But what’s better than watching the actual game? Well, the tailgating, of course.
It’s not just about the burgers, wings, chili and other good eating both outside and inside the stadium (or the healthier fare, if you’re so inclined). And it’s not just about wearing your team’s colors or pregame cheers to get pumped up before the first snap.
A big part of a successful tailgate is about the games to play while eating or enjoying that adult beverage in those hours spent before kickoff.
