After Putin falls during exhibition hockey game, a social media frenzy | Fox News

Russian President Vladimir Putin took a spill on Friday as he waved to fans at an exhibition hockey game in Sochi which featured several former NHL players.

The 66-year-old was waving to fans as he circled the rink at the Bolshoi Arena in the Black Sea resort of Sochi when he inadvertently raced toward the edge of a red carpet that had been placed on the ice.

Two of Putin’s teammates on the “Legends” tried to catch him but the Russian leader fell before they could reach him.

The fall inspired a frenzy of posts on social media mocking Putin and his authoritarian rule, and jokingly suggesting that someone would pay dearly for his or her role in the mishap.

Alyssa Milano Calls For Sex Strike To Protest Restrictive Abortion Laws – Deadline

Alyssa Milano Calls For Sex Strike To Protest Restrictive Abortion Laws

Alyssa Milano, one of the leaders of the #MeToo movement, is taking a different approach to battling the so-called “Heartbeat Bill” anti-abortion bill recently codified in Georgia, with similar measures under consideration in other states.

In this case, Milano has advocated a #NoMas approach, calling on women to refrain from sex while their rights to their own bodies are at issue by state legislatures.

“Our reproductive rights are being erased,” Milano said via Twitter. “Until women have legal control over our bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy. JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I’m calling for a #SexStrike. Pass it on.”

So far, the tweet has won strong approval (although the demographics of supporters weren’t broken out), generating more than 10,000 likes and 4,000 retweets since its apperance on Friday. #SexStrike was also trending on Twitter Saturday.

Crews battling 7-alarm fire at large warehouse in Etna, area evacuated

Engineers met with fire officials to inspect the building on Friday. They do not think the building has to be torn down. The Allegheny County Fire Marshal’s Office identified where the fire started but could not get to the area because of debris and the structural integrity of the building being unsafe.

The Etna Fire Chief Greg Porter said that when the building was renovated several years ago, it had to meet the international construction code in areas including occupancy, fire suppression and smoke alarms, but once they are in and it is occupied there is no requirement to have it checked every year.
