Awkward: Pittsburgh, Green Bay players get facemasks locked

It’s like the plot of every romantic comedy ever: two opposites collide then find they can’t part.

On a kickoff just after a Pittsburgh Steelers touchdown on Sunday night, the Green Bay PackersGeronimo Allison and the Steelers’ Vince Williams had a difference of opinion, and met at midfield to discuss their opposing views. When officials came to separate the two, they found that separation was a little bit tougher than they expected:


Yep, that’s the danger of getting up in someone else’s facemask: they might get up in yours, too.

Hey, could’ve been worse. They could’ve thrown their helmets rather than conjoining them.

Getting up close and personal. (Via screenshot)

[Correction: An earlier version of this article misidentified the Pittsburgh player.]

    Human Rights Watch: Palestinians crush dissent with torture

    Security forces of the rival Palestinian governments routinely use torture and arbitrary arrests, among other tactics, to quash dissent by peaceful activists and political opponents, Human Rights Watch said Tuesday. It accused both the Western-backed Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and the Islamic militant Hamas in Gaza of using "machineries of repression" to stifle criticism. Human Rights Watch also said the systematic use of torture could amount to a crime against humanity under the United Nations' Convention against Torture, and called on countries that provide funding to Palestinian law enforcement to suspend their assistance.

    Taiwan court: Excessive speed caused deadly train derailment

    Excessive speed was the main cause of the derailment of a train in Taiwan that killed 18 people and injured scores of others, a district court said Tuesday. The train entered a curve in eastern Taiwan on Sunday afternoon at 140 kilometres (87 miles) per hour, almost twice the speed limit for that section of track, the Yilan County district court said in a statement. The driver, Yu Cheng-chung, had disabled the automatic train protection system after sensing "abnormal movements" in acceleration, the court statement said.

    Science Says: Sex and gender aren't the same

    Anatomy at birth may prompt a check in the "male" or "female" box on the birth certificate — but to doctors and scientists, sex and gender aren't always the same thing. The Trump administration purportedly is considering defining gender as determined by sex organs at birth, which if adopted could deny certain civil rights protections to an estimated 1.4 million transgender Americans. A: Sex typically refers to anatomy while "gender goes beyond biology," says Dr. Jason Rafferty, a pediatrician and child psychiatrist at Hasbro Children's Hospital in Rhode Island, and lead author of the AAP's transgender policy.

    Exclusive: China's Huawei opens up to German scrutiny ahead of 5G auctions

    The move follows Australia's decision to ban Huawei from supplying 5G equipment over concerns it could facilitate Chinese spying, and its barring from some U.S. government contracts on national security grounds. Germany, which lacks a telecoms hardware industry of its own, is keener to maintain its traditionally close trade and investment ties with Beijing without compromising on its own cyber-security, say officials. The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) said Huawei will open the lab on Nov. 16 in Bonn, where the BSI and other key regulators are based.
