The Memorial Day edition of WWE Raw will offer glimpses of the brutality promised at the Extreme Rules. The go-home show will give the red brand one final chance to sell fans on Sunday's pay-per-view. That's sure to mean violent confrontations aplenty. And two bouts lined up for Monday night will give the competitors in the Fatal 5-Way match a preview of that clash. Two former members of The Shield will collide. Finn Balor will have to outlast both Bray Wyatt and Samoa Joe. Plus, the tag team title bout and Raw Women's Championship match will get some added hype. And Greenville, South Carolina, will host it all. Will we see The Hardy Boyz make their anticipated transformation? Could we see an injured star back in action? Backstage news and the Raw preview on WWE.com help answer those questions before the pre-Extreme Rules show hits the airwaves on Monday at 8 p.

Enlarge / RiME is often a peaceful game, but it has a few harrowing moments. (credit: Tequila Works) I have had one of the most gorgeous Memorial Day weekends that I can recall, replete with beautiful, exotic memories. Some are dotted with endless coastlines and remarkable rock formations. Others are covered by bizarre memorials to an unnamed past, all scorched by the sun and set into contrast by raging thunderstorms. Each has contained its fair share of sky-burning sunsets, foliage-lined cavern glades, and wild animals. Roughly every 15 minutes, I have stopped, marveled, and taken a photo. Now that my trip is complete, I have a scrapbook of my experiences. It's among my favorites of the past few years. This has been my experience with the video game RiME , which launched a few days ago on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PCs. I got behind on other work ahead of the Memorial Day weekend and figured I'd play this cute, "narrative puzzle-platformer" in a few hours, then write some impressions before I clocked out for the holiday.

When Micheal Williams, a Republican and a self-described fiscal conservative, saw the plan, he was stunned. “I thought, ‘Oh my God,’” Williams said. “I dont know if they really thought this through.” Williams is mayor of Union County, which never fully recovered from the loss of its textile industry when it shifted to Mexico after NAFTA. When Trump promised to bring back manufacturing jobs, voters there lined up behind him. But last week when Trump released his budget, the message they got from the president was that they were on their own. The bulk of Union County’s $42.8 million budget is funded by property taxes. With a population of less than 20,000 and a median income of $37,000, there’s no way to raise money for big projects. Some residents still rely on dial-up internet, and a rural elementary school needs a $500,000 upgrade to its water and septic system.

That is why campaigners for trans rights hope that the Kochi metro action will show the way to others in the country. Kochi is a port city in Kerala on India’s southern tip – a palm-lined state with India’s highest literacy rate. The 23 transgenders have been employed in ticketing, customer care and housekeepinggiving them an opportunity to come face to face with the thousands who ride on the metro. “Common people like you and I will also get a chance to interact with these people and that will facilitate an understanding that there is nothing fundamentally different between we people and the transgenders,” says Dilraj KR, project manager at Kudumbashree, an organization focused on poverty eradication and women’s empowerment in Kerala that helped train the transgenders for the metro jobs. “They are also human beings like everybody else.” The effort to secure jobs for the transgender community was born after a group landed in a police station following a brawl and explained to a sympathetic police commissioner that they would not be involved in illegal activities such as sex work or begging on trains and at traffic signals if they had “respectful jobs” to earn a living.

The move met with broad public approval: for many years Kyivans have been plagued by a glut of annoying and tasteless street advertising. But there’s a downside too: Scott said street advertising has to have a place because the city needs the income. A prosperous city needs a mix of revenues, he said. “But it has to be under control. Personally, I think that the place we are at the moment has too much street advertising,” Scott said, gesturing to the other side of Khreshchatyk Street, where buildings were lined with dozens of colorful advertising signs in a mish-mash of different stylesMaybe the city should start to encourage individuals to do it better,” he said. City of past Walking past the Kyiv City Council building, with its bottom three floors of rough-faced red granite blocks, and top floors of beige tiled façade, Scott recalled how fascinated and intrigued he was when he first discovered that a huge number of historic buildings remained in Kyiv, and how they were ignored.

Yesterday was a big deal for all the fans of James Cameron's Avatar . Pandora The World of Avatar located in the Animal Kingdom Park in the Walt Disney World Resort opened to guests staying at Disney resort hotels at 7am, and then to the general public an hour later. Needless to say, people were eager to get in on the action. The main attractions of the park are the two rides, Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey , and people lined up to get on them early. Like really early. One of the first people to enter the park said he got there at 5 a.m. He told the people cued up on line just to get into Pandora that their patience would pay off. Read more...

Not content to let sleeping dogs lie, former NBA commissioner David Stern rehashed the scuttled trade that saw Chris Paul nearly join the Los Angeles Lakers . During the May 19 edition of the Nunyo Company podcast (h/t Harrison Faigen of SB Nation), Stern blamed former Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak for the team failing to land Paul: And in fact, in the course of the weekend, we thought we could re-do the deal. We really thought that Houston would be ready to part with Kyle Lowry; and we had a trade lined up for [Lamar] Odom that would have gotten us a good first-round draft pick. Not we, but my basketball folks. But [Kupchack] at the time panicked, and moved Odom to Dallas . So the piece wasn't even there for us to play with at the time. So that was itjust about what was good for the then New Orleans Hornets . This article will be updated to provide more information on this story as it becomes available.

Salvatore Giordano, a Sicilian high school professor, blamed the low turnout of in part on heavy security. He was stopped by police multiple times and blocked for a half-hour at the highway exit before finally being let through. Police were also stopping buses and searching them, he said. "They are criminalizing our dissent," Giordano said. "We're pacifists. We're not here to break windows, but to protest against Sicily being turned into a giant aircraft carrier for the world's military powers." "CAMPAIGN OF FEAR" U.S. President Donald Trump and the heads of Italy, France, Britain, Germany, Canada and Japan had been meeting in Taormina, which sits on a rocky hilltop just north of Giardini Naxos. Bus loads of police lined the route of the march in what is normally a sleepy town of beach-going tourists, while a police helicopter circled above. Giordano came to air his opposition to the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS), part of an ultra-fast satellite communications network for the American military that he says poses a health risk to people living near the infrastructure.

If there was an award for most ridiculous and hilarious weird sport in the universe, it would hands down go to Kaiju Big Battel, also known as Live Monster Wrestling. Inspired by Japanese monster movies of the same name, Kaiju, which means strange beast, the battels' heroes and villains clumsily wrestle for control of the universe in a ring lined with miniature cardboard skyscrapers. Fans of Godzilla, Ultraman, and Judge Dredd will be able to more easily wrap their heads around the events. The fantastical performances are the brainchild of Rand Borden, who teaches sculpture classes in New York City when he's not running Kaiju Big Battel. He came up with the idea in 1994, but it's grown exponentially since then. The cult following is nowhere near the level of WWE, but Kaiju Big Battel is hugely popular with folks that know about it Read more...
