Two days following his controversial remarks, Colbert tempered his comments, saying that although he did not regret his criticism of the president, he regretted the language he'd used to express it. While I would do it again, I would change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be, Colbert said on the May 3 edition of the Late Show. He added: I just want to say for the record, life is short, and anyone who expresses their love for another person, in their own way, is to me, an American hero.

They embrace the healing of the brain. This is different from even, say, five years ago. Back then, players regularly hid even the worst head injuries from teams. Former safety Myron Rolle said as much in an ESPN interview in which he admitted he played through concussions and regretted doing it. Future Hall of Fame receiver Calvin Johnson likewise recently told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press that he hid concussions from the Lions. So in one way, things are better. But then they get complicated. The players with whom I spoke say when they get hit in the headdinged, as they still call it or get dizzy from a hit to the head, they tell almost no one, especially not the team. The only people they tell are other players or family members, such as wives. But even Drew Brees, who's keenly aware of the effects of football on his body, said during a recent appearance on the Dan Patrick Show (via ESPN.

Former NBC personality Billy Bush told The Hollywood Reporter that he was too sycophantic and wishes he'd just changed the subject when asked about the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape of Donald Trump making lewd remarks about women. Trump, then the host of "The Apprentice," directed his infamous comment at Bush that he could kiss any woman he wanted because he was famous, and even "grab them by the pussy." Throughout the exchange, Bush could be heard laughing. Trump apologized for causing offense, but the explosive video did not wind up dooming his presidential campaign. For Bush, however, the fallout led to him leaving NBC less than two weeks later. Bush said in an exclusive interview with THR that he regretted being deferential to Trump. He said he felt "gutted" when he heard the tape just three days before it was released on Oct. 7, 2016. "My participation was awful, too," he said.

During an interview on his show Friday night, CNN host Anderson Cooper interrupted a conservative pundit with a not-so-subtle jab that he later regretted. Cooper told Jeffrey Lord, a supporter of the president, that if Trump took a dump on his desk, he would still defend him. The host apologised on Twitter after his show, saying he regrets the crude sentence, which he followed up with an apology on air. It was unprofessional, Cooper said. I am...

" The England job was the pinnacle of a long career in management that saw Allardyce previously take charge of Bolton, West Ham, Newcastle and Sunderland. "I wasn't just proud to be the England manager, I was ready," said Allardyce. Allardyce, who at the time of his departure said he had been victim of "entrapment" by The Daily Telegraph newspaper, added Saturday he regretted mocking England predecessor Roy Hodgson's speech impediment in his filmed meetings with undercover reporters. "That was embarrassing for me. No doubt about that," Allardyce said. "I haven't spoken to Roy. I made a decision not to call him because I thought it would be better to wait until I saw him, face to face. But I haven't seen him yet." Just three months after losing the England job, Allardyce was back in football with Palace after being encouraged to return by former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, a longstanding friend.

Our urban centres are bearing the brunt of the latest austerity cuts. Not since the Thatcher era has a Tory government dared to pit town against country this cynically ‘There’s nobody representing us,” said the thirtysomething man killing time on a side street in Handsworth, Birmingham. Amid the weekday bustle on nearby Soho Road, a smattering of people told me they would be voting Labour, there was irate talk about the Conservativesrecord on immigration, and a few British-Asian former Brexit supporters said they now regretted voting for the leave side, what with prices creeping up and the uncertainties facing small business people. But to a greater extent than anywhere I’ve visited over the past three weeks, the election felt irrelevant to ordinary life.

He concluded that the best answer was war to the knife and the knife to the hilt. (See Pierce diary entry of July 25, 1847 ) The next day Pierce regretted what he had written, noting that the purpose of the diary was simply to state the facts so that he could remember them better at some future time. The diary entry also reminded him of his friend Samuel E. Coues of Portsmouth, New Hampshire,who wanted all nations to outlaw war. He concluded that as a general he was responsible for prosecuting the war since such a course would more speedily lead to peace. (See Pierce diary entry of July 26, 1847 ). The diary ends on July 30, 1847 , when Pierce's brigade joined up with Scott's army. Pierce wrote to J. F. H. Claiborne of the just & accomplished Beauregard, who supported Pierce's candidacy for the presidency.

The team behind the first of two controversial Netflix movies at the Cannes film festival on Friday defended working with the streaming giant, after a technical hiccup sparked near pandemonium at its premiere. British actress Tilda Swinton, a star and executive producer of the $50-million (44 million-euro) creature feature "Okja", pushed back at criticism from jury president Pedro Almodovar, who said Netflix was undermining world cinema with its focus on small screens and home entertainment. Swinton said she regretted the Spanish filmmaker had "to immediately nobble (undermine) some who have been invited to the party" with his statement on the festival's opening day indicating that neither of the Netflix contenders should take home a prize. "But the truth is we didn't actually come here for prizes -- we came to show this film to the Cannes film festival and people who gathered here from all over the world," she told reporters.

Name: Ria and Piet Veld Location: Appingedam, the Netherlands Size: 1,722 square feet Years lived in: 18 years; owned In the most northern province of the Netherlands lies the quaint city of Appingedam . It's such a charming place, that when Ria and Piet Veld sold their previous house there eighteen years ago, they didn't want to leave. The only other property for sale at the time was this Scandinavian-style cottage, which, while cute and full of character, looked dark and small due to all the wood paneling. Its location next to one of the city's many canals, though, was absolutely perfect. So Piet and Ria took the plunge and have never looked back or regretted the move. READ MORE »

Although a dislocated shoulder was "popped" back into its socket in order to continue, it left him with a throbbing energy-sapping pain in his shoulder. Thomas, who was key to teammate Chris Froome winning his third Tour de France yellow jersey last year, fought the pain barrier again on Tuesday to finish second only to Dumoulin, who won Olympic time trial silver in Rio last year. Although buoyed, he regretted deciding to throw his water bottle away during the race with the 'wrong' arm. "It's one of those (situations) where you have to grit your teeth and go for it and hope the pain (in the legs) is more than the pain in the arm," he said. "I tried to give it everything today. But I threw my water bottle away with this arm with about 8km to go, and I probably shouldn't have done that!" Dumoulin, who wore the pink jersey last year after winning the opening stage time trial on home soil in Apeldoorn, now leads Colombia's Nairo Quintana by 2:23 in the overall standings.

IRNA Judiciary chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani on Monday called on the Iranians to elect a president in the upcoming elections who will disappoint the enemies. “We, as the (Iranian) nation, have a duty to disappoint the enemy and therefore the amount of enemy’s dissatisfaction from the election of a candidate can be a very good criterion for distinguishing the most qualified candidate,” Ayatollah Larijani said. The Ayatollah expressed certainty that the Iranian nation will create an epic on the Election Day slated for May 19. The Judiciary chief urged all the Iranian people to rush to ballot boxes to help defend the country’s might and security and dash the hopes of the enemies. Ayatollah Larijani regretted that some of the candidates acted in their presidential campaign as if they are the establishment’s opposition, noting, Certainly such an act runs contrary to national interests.

" Human Rights Watch noted that three European governments voted to allow Riyadh to join the commission, but that the Belgian prime minister later regretted his government's decision. HRW also questioned how a "repressive" Saudi government could serve on a commission whose stated goal is the "promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women." On social media, Saudi activists continue to wage a campaign to urge King Salman to relax what they perceive as the archaic restriction preventing women from driving. A number of women have driven their cars in public in recent years to protest the ban, but so far they have failed to sway public opinion. The king's son and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed Ben Salman told journalists recently that it is a societal norm that forbids women from driving, rather than a religious restriction. He added that Saudi society is still not convinced of the merits of women being allowed to drive and that many think that there are serious negative consequences to allowing them to do so.

The American Idol reboot has already lost out on Kelly Clarkson and it doesnt look like theyll be getting Simon Cowell to come back anytime soon, either. In an interview with Extra, Cowell revealed, I was asked to do it, and the answer is no . Its as simple as that. But the former Idol judge ― who was one of the original three panelists ― went on to explain his reasoning, saying, I have no interest. My memories are when we first started. It was a different time with Randy [Jackson], Ryan [Seacrest] and Paula [Abdul]. You cant recreate that. Cowell said that he just didnt feel the show had that same feeling in recent seasons. I left for a reason and I never regretted that, he said. The producer is now on the judging panel for both Britains Got Talent and Americas Got Talent.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said he regretted voting to confirm Rosenstein after reviewing the memorandum he drafted that laid out the rationale for dismissing Comey; Blumenthal said I know other Democrats have similar qualms. “I think his credibility has been severely damaged and the only way to redeem it is to appoint a special prosecutor,” said Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) of Rosenstein, who was a federal prosecutor in Maryland until he was tapped as DOJ’s second-ranking official. “The mistake was for him to allow himself to be used by the Trump administration to fire the director of the FBI in the middle of an ongoing investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.” Confirmations for FBI directors have rarely been partisan affairs. According to the Congressional Research Service, every single leader of the bureau since the Nixon era was confirmed unanimously by the Senate until Comey, who had just one dissenter in his 2013 vote: Sen.
