Funbag Time for your weekly edition of the Deadspin Funbag. Got something on your mind? [Email the Funbag](mailto:[email protected]). Today, we’re talking about science fiction, playoff seeding, mortadella, microwaves, and more. Your letters: Jack: Have you, Drew, yet graduated to a multi-screen sports viewing experience in your humble abode? Am I crazy for setting up my living room with two TV’s, or are you crazy for NOT having done this? Just having two TV’s I can watch at the same time has been a revelation! I have three kids, so I’m lucky whenever I get ONE television to myself, let alone several TVs at once. If I put a second TV in my basement (which would be hard because wall space is limited down there), I would just end up playing myself: forced to watch the NFL and a fucking episode of Lab Rats simultaneously. Total disaster. I need just one TV so that my children understand that Dad won’t be allowing other secondary viewing … [Read more...] about Should A TV Room Really Have More Than One TV?
After the bedlam of last year’s Champions League run, there was a reassuring serenity inside Anfield as Liverpool moved to the brink of another semi-final. Jurgen Klopp’s side will take a two-goal lead to Porto, and the fact they achieved superiority playing as if they had more gears to find was the only obvious concession to ongoing domestic priorities. Even The Kop was not so boisterous, as if preserving those vocal chords for Chelsea’s visit in the Premier League this weekend. For a Champions League quarter-final, it was as close to routine as conceivable, even though Porto created enough moments of encouragement to show there is plenty of hard work left for Liverpool to complete the job. It was loud and dynamic enough when it needed to be, just incomparable to those nights against Roma and Manchester City. That is not a criticism, more another example of the growth of this Liverpool side, controlling the pace of the game in the second half as Porto attempted to … [Read more...] about Liverpool take advantage in Champions League quarter-final after Porto come to Anfield to have a go
By Innocent Anaba, Henry Ojelu & Onozure Dania From all indications, 2019 is expected to be one of the most challenging years for the country’s judiciary, particularly because of the general elections, which will start on February 16, with the presidential poll. In the past, this arm of government had discharged itself creditably well, even during election years. But with more attention by Nigerians on the judiciary, more so, its all important role as the last hope of the common man when all other arms of government and facet of the society seems to fail the people, the judiciary is increasingly being called upon to bail the cat. The big question then becomes, will this all important arm of government live up to expectations? In this edition of Law and Human Rights, lawyers task the judiciary of what they expect of it this 2019. Those who spoke include Chief Solo Akuma, SAN, Mr Arthur Obi-Okafor, SAN, Professor Ernest Ojukwu, SAN, Lawal Pedro, SAN, John Olusegun … [Read more...] about 2019: What Judiciary must do differently — Lawyers

Chapter 1 “Inmates Run This Bitch” Chapter 2 Prison Experiments Chapter 3 The CCA Way Chapter 4 “You Got to Survive” Chapter 5 Lockdown Chapter 1: “Inmates Run This Bitch” Have you ever had a riot?” I ask a recruiter from a prison run by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA). I take a breath. Am I really going to become a prison guard? Now that it might actually happen, it feels scary and a bit extreme. From the editor: Why we sent a reporter to work as a private prison guard I started applying for jobs in private prisons because I wanted to see the inner workings of an industry that holds 131,000 of the nation’s 1.6 million prisoners. As a journalist, it’s nearly impossible to get an unconstrained look inside our penal system. When prisons do let reporters in, it’s usually for carefully managed tours and monitored interviews with inmates. … [Read more...] about My Four Months as a Private Prison Guard: A Mother Jones Investigation
