Did Former Bear Devin Hester’s Chances to Enter Hall of Fame Just Go Up?
Publisher:  Heavy.com
Tuesday, 07 April 2020 18:03

In 2022, former Chicago Bears All-Pro kickoff and punt returner Devin Hester will be eligible to enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Whether or not he’ll get the votes needed to gain entry has been a subject of debate for awhile now, but Hester’s impact on the game remains undeniable.

Hester is the NFL’s all-time leader in return touchdowns (20) and punt returns for touchdowns (14). His primary role was on special teams, although the team did try to capitalize on his play-making abilities by turning him into a wide receiver — which did not work so well. Hester played eight of his 11 seasons with the Bears, and was named an All-Pro three times, while getting voted into the Pro Bowl four times. He also played two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons before retiring after the 2016 season, in which he spent time with both the Ravens and Seahawks.


Did Devin Hester’s Chances to Be Inducted Just Increase?

Hester’s lack of overall playing time and lower snap counts are primary knocks against his potential entry into the Hall of Fame, but few argue he is one of the best — if not the best — to ever do it. He was one of six specialists to make the NFL’s All-100 team last year, and his latest honor just may give his Hall of Fame credentials a boost.

This week, Hester was one of four Bears named to the NFL’s All-Decade team. Hester was also named to the All-Decade team from 2000-2010, making him one of just four players to make the list in each of the last two decades. The other three? Tom Brady, punter Shane Lechler and former Bear Julius Peppers.


Devin Hester: I Put Fear in My Opponents

Hester revealed in February why he thinks he should be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“When you look at and you talk about the Hall of Fame, you talk about the Hall of Famers, the players, you not only look at the stats, but you look at what these guys bring to the table, whether it be the best wide receiver, whether it be the most dominant defensive end, all those types of categories fit why those guys are in the Hall of Fame,” Hester told NBC Sports.

“You look at the type of guy I am, and you look at the numbers: most kickoff returns in NFL history. When you look at the side of what type of player was he, one of the most feared guys with the ball in his hands. I feel as though the plays that I made in the NFL, and not only that, but the fear that I put in the opponent, fits the category of a Hall of Famer. Hopefully, one day, if God wills, I’ll be selected.”

Hester has a point when he references the fear he put into his opponents. Every time he touched the ball, fans, media personnel and players alike waited for him to break out. He changed the way opposing team’s coached and approached special teams in his time with the Bears, and in his 11 seasons, he changed the game.

Whether he eventually makes it into the Hall remains to be seen, but his chances just got an additional boost.

City uses 'stay at home' order to crack down on pro-lifers

A constitutional crisis is unfolding in Charlotte, North Carolina, after the police department arrested a group of pro-life demonstrators for violating the state's "stay at home" order.

A small group representing Cities4Life staged a weekend protest outside the Preferred Women's Health Center of Charlotte. Video of the protest shows the group maintained proper social distancing requirements.

However, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department determined the gathering violated a state order banning "mass gatherings."

In other words, it's permissible under the law for abortion doctors to kill unborn babies, but it's not permissible for law-abiding pro-lifers to assemble in protest.

Note: Social media is cracking down on Conservative content. Many of you have complained that you never see our content in your news feeds. There's only one way to fight back -- and that's by subscribing to my FREE weekly newsletter. Click here.

Among the eight individuals arrested was Cities4Life Board Chairman David Benham, a nationally known Christian leader and prominent North Carolina businessman. He was handcuffed and hauled off to jail.

"They arrested me," Benham said during an interview on The Todd Starnes Radio Show. "We were doing everything within our rights under the law. We went above and beyond."

Why would the police arrest a handful of law-abiding pro-lifers when the local parks were packed with people violating social distancing regulations?

"This is a constitutional crisis," Benham said. "This is clear government overreach. This is viewpoint discrimination."

Benham has a legitimate argument. If he had been standing in a local park he would not have been arrested. But he was standing outside an abortion clinic – and that was a problem for Democratic leaders in the area.

"They aren't arresting people in the park that are gathering way more than 10 people," he said. "They are not arresting people outside your hipster store. They arrested me."

Clearly, the government leaders in Charlotte seek the coronavirus crisis as an opportunity to crack down on pro-lifers.

"Do we have a global pandemic? Yes. The statutes that help social distancing, should we abide by those? Yes. Should we give the government unlimited powers, especially those that cannot stand our values, that cannot stand constitutional liberties, that do not like our pro-life message, that do not like the fact that we honor family and marriage and virtue?" Benham asked.

The Todd Starnes Radio Show has been documenting attacks on civil liberties across the nation, but the police action against the pro-lifers in Charlotte is the most egregious.

"The people in Charlotte – the city attorney, the mayor, several council members – they targeted our Christian, law-abiding citizens simply because we are speaking a message they don't like," Benham told Starnes. "Simply because we are providing essential services at an abortion facility. They want us off the streets. And it's not going to happen."

Benham said he does not fault the police officers. He said they were just doing their jobs – even though they knew what they were doing was unconstitutional.

Regardless, Benham said his organization will not be bullied or silenced by the Democrats who control the city's government.

"If abortion is an essential business, then our pro-life ministry is also an essential business," he declared.

Why Matt Roloff & Girlfriend Caryn Chandler Are Not Engaged
Publisher:  Heavy.com
Tuesday, 07 April 2020 18:03

Matt Roloff, star of the hit TLC series Little People, Big Worldis not engaged to girlfriend Caryn Chandler just yet, despite the two being happily committed to one another for nearly three years. Although fans are hopeful for an engagement in the near future, both reality stars have noted that they’re not trying to rush things, as they enjoy what they have currently.

However, that doesn’t mean the two don’t ever plan to tie the knot. After a fan questioned whether there would be a “new Mrs. Roloff” in the near future, Matt did mention an engagement might be coming “down stream,” so the reality stars aren’t completely shooting the idea down – they’re just content with their lives currently.

Keep reading for Matt and Caryn’s thoughts on a future engagement:


When a Fan Asked About a ‘Future Mrs. Roloff,’ Matt Said ‘That’s Coming Down Stream I Hope’

After Matt took to Instagram to promote the premiere of the newest season of LPBW, some fans were confused by the wording of his post. The reality star uploaded a series of photos of the two together and captioned the pictures, “Well! it’s official!! The waiting is almost over, ” which had some fans thinking he was about to announce an engagement to Caryn.

One commenter wrote, “I’m not gonna lie, when I first started reading, ‘It’s official!!’ I thought that we were going to finally have a new Mrs. Roloff! Hint, hint! Wink, wink,” to which Matt responded, “Well that’s coming down stream I hope,” so fans might get an engagement announcement in the near future after all.

However, the reality star also suggested he didn’t want to steal the spotlight from his ex-wife Amy Roloff and fiance Chris Marek, who are currently in the process of planning their wedding.

“We don’t want to step on Amy and Chris’s excitement — But you never know what might happen next! For now [Caryn] and I are living a very happy and our very best life together… enjoying our kids and my grandkids. A wonderful season of life!” Matt added to commenter.


Caryn Also Suggested the Two Are Happy With Their Lives Currently & Are in No Hurry to Get Married

Caryn also responded to a fan question about a possible engagement ring after the reality star posted a picture of Zach and Tori Roloff’s newborn daughter on Instagram. In the comments of the picture above, a fan wrote, “Thought I saw a ring on that left finger,” followed by a praying-hands emoji. Caryn responded back, “hahah. No – we r just enjoying life with no rush – I promise to let ya know if that changes tho.”

Although Matt and Caryn aren’t rushing to the altar anytime soon, they’ve made it clear that they aren’t totally dismissing the idea and are more than ready to tie the knot when the time is right, so fans can likely expect a big announcement sometime in the near future.

New episodes of Little People, Big World air Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on TLC. In the meantime, you can find all the latest in TV coverage and entertainment news here.

Tyto Care raises $50 million as it looks to buy and build new services during COVID-19 demand surge
Publisher:  TechCrunch
Tuesday, 07 April 2020 18:00

Tyto Care, the provider of a home health diagnostic device and telemedicine consultation app, said it has raised $50 million in a new round of funding.

The round was led by Insight Partners, Olive Tree Ventures, and Qualcomm Ventures, according to a statement and brings the startup’s total capital raised to over $105 million.

The funding comes just as Tyto has seen a dramatic surge in demand brought by the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tyto Care’s toolkit is being used as a telehealth diagnostic solution that was already seeing three times sales growth in 2019 alone.

Last year, the company inked a deal with Best Buy and works with most of the major telemedicine providers including American Well, Teladoc, and others.

Previous investors Orbimed, Echo Health, Qure, Teuza and others also participated in the new financing, the company said in a statement.

With the financing, Tyto Care is well positioned to both buy and build new tools based on its existing diagnostics platform as well as expand its home health testing kit into new areas.

Companies like Scanwell Health, are providing at-home diagnostic tests for things like urinary tract infections, and Tyto Care chief executive Dedi Gilad definitely sees options for new products around different kinds of at-home tests, the Tyto Care founder said in an interview.

All of this new capital comes with surging demand where Tyto Care’s telehealth technology is being used by every hospital in Israel to provide remote examinations of quarantined and isolated patients infected with COVID-19. Other hospital networks are also turning to the company’s diagnostics tools for similar applications, the company said.

The remote medical exams can protect health providers from exposure to SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and enables uninfected patients to get an examination of their basic health remotely, without needing to go to a medical facility.

“Over the past two years, Tyto Care has increased momentum faster than ever before and is playing a leading role in changing how people receive healthcare. Telehealth is heeding the call of the COVID-19 pandemic and we are proud that our unique solution is aiding health systems and consumers around the world in the fight against the virus,� said Gilad, in a statement. “This new funding comes at a pivotal moment in the evolution of telehealth and will enable us to continue to transform the global healthcare industry with the best virtual care solutions.�

The Resident Season 4: Is the Show Canceled or Renewed?
Publisher:  Heavy.com
Tuesday, 07 April 2020 18:00

The Fox Drama The Resident airs its season finale early tonight, as the production on the show was shut down due to the global coronavirus pandemic. The show has not yet been renewed or canceled for the next season.  

The season finale for season 3 of The Resident airs tonight, April 7, but the season has been cut short, so it was not where the season had originally been scheduled to end. If the show does not return for season four, then it will never be able to tie up any loose ends it may have coming out of this episode, and if it does get renewed, then it will have to deal with those at the beginning of next season.

It’s possible the show could get back to production at some point in the coming summer, though there are plenty of safety concerns that would first be addressed by the studio.


Show Renewals Have Been Delayed Due to Coronavirus

While show renewals are generally announced before the end of the season, that hasn’t been the case for many of the shows airing in spring 2020. NBC’s NCIS has yet to be renewed with the season finale airing next week, along with the season finale of the NCIS: LA spin-off.

There is a chance that The Resident has not yet been renewed to due concerns with the viewership of the show. The show’s ratings have dropped 21 percent since last season, according to TV Series Finale. Those numbers aren’t an exact science, though. Fox had only a few more watched than The Resident this season.

The only shows with more viewership on Fox were 911, 911: Lone Star and Last Man Standing. The Resident beat out Stephen Dorph’s Deputy by less than one million average viewers, but that show has been canceled after its first season.


Filming Could Possibly Resume in July

It’s likely the show will return at the very least to wrap up any loose ends leftover from this season, but it’s not immediately clear when that kind of thing will be possible. Co-creator and executive producer of The Resident, Amy Holden Jones, told the Los Angeles Times she is unsure when the show will be able to return to production safely though some people are speculating it could be by July.

“Going back on set is complicated, it’s an enclosed space; people come and go. We don’t usually shoot until July and I hope by then the virus falls back but we don’t know. I don’t get to make that call; Disney will make that call, they own the show,” she said.

She continued to say that she would personally like to poll the cast and crew to see how they felt about possibly going back to work in July and emphasized that she does not want to be putting anyone in danger.

Even if filming did resume in July, that doesn’t necessarily mean the show will be renewed for the next season. It could just wrap up the current season at that point, but there is no word either way at the time of writing.

The Resident Season 3 Finale: Spoilers

The popular Fox Drama The Resident airs its season finale tonight, April 7 due to production on the show being shut down due to the global coronavirus pandemic. The season will end after episode 20, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

It’s likely the episode will not feel like a usual season finale since they originally were planning on having two additional episodes to tie up all loose ends. Now, they will instead have to tie up those loose ends at the beginning of the next season of the show, though it has not yet been renewed for a new season.

WARNING: Spoilers for The Resident Season Three Follow.

Continue reading for what we know about what will go down on tonight’s season finale of The Resident. 


‘The Resident’ Season 3 Finale Spoilers

According to the episode synopsis, a complication will arise with Derek’s condition tonight. The complication will cause Kit to fear that he may be the latest victim of Cain’s coverup.

“When Cain’s former girlfriend is admitted to the hospital for surgery, the doctors finally get a glimpse into his personal life,” the synopsis reads. “Meanwhile, Conrad fills in Marshall on the emergency situation facing the hospital and Mina and The Raptor work on saving the heart of a salsa dancer.”

When it comes to Cain, the showrunner, Todd Harthan had some things to say about his character arc after the show’s fall finale.

“Is he such a loyalist to Red Rock that he will always remain blind to some of the ways in which they do business? Or, not unlike the evolution of Bell, is this a man that can evolve?” he said. “That’s what we’re playing with really from the moment we get back after the break up through our final batch of episodes and on to the season finale.”

It’s likely that Cain will have more of an issue with some of the things going on in the hospital when it’s his ex-girlfriend, who he seems to still have unresolved feelings for if the teaser has anything to say, is the one on his operating table. There’s a strong possibility that he will decide it’s unethical to resuscitate her even though he knows that she won’t make it very long following the surgery.

Unfortunately, it’s possible that won’t even wrap up this season due to the final three episodes being canceled.


The Storyline Will Continue Into Next Season

If The Resident is renewed for a fourth season, then the storyline with Cain will be continued then. This was originally supposed to be coming to a head and conclusion during Episodes 19-23 of the season, meaning they would have had three more episodes to work with before wrapping.

Now, the show is ending on episode 20, meaning that they’ll be right in the middle of what would have been the gear-up to the season finale meaning it might feel more like a cliffhanger. There will likely be a lot of plot points and questions left open-ended at this point.

Tune in to The Resident on Fox at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT to see how it all plays out.
