Ad Pulled After ‘League’ Star’s 9/11 Lie.

NEW YORK (AP) — Buffalo Wild Wings will stop airing TV commercials featuring comedian Steve Rannazzisi, who said this week that he lied about being in the World Trade Center during the Sept. 11 attacks. “Upon careful review, we have decided to discontinue airing our current television commercials featuring Steve Rannazzisi,” the Minneapolis company said in a statement Thursday.

(Source: AP photo) Officials at the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center say a female yellow-bellied water snake reproduced on her own in 2014 and again this summer.By delaying a rate hike for at least one further month, the Fed has announced its belief that the economy, more than six years after the Great Recession ended, still hasn’t recovered enough to overcome uncertainties abroad and persistently low inflation. The 37-year-old apologized on Wednesday after the New York Times confronted him with evidence that his story of working at Merrill Lynch’s offices in the South Tower when the North Tower was hit was false. “As a young man, I made a mistake that I deeply regret and for which apologies may still not be enough,” he said Wednesday. Officials at Comedy Central said Thursday they were still pondering whether to spike a Rannazzisi stand-up comedy special set to air Saturday night on the network. The actor had previously attributed part of his success to decisions he made after the life-changing experience of narrowly escaping the terror attacks.

It is a giant blow for the restaurant chain, who had planned to use the actor in their new commercials which had just begun airing for the football season. Conservation Department herpetologist Jeff Briggler said virgin births are rare but can occur in some species through a process called parthenogenesis. The paper reached out to the actor after they could find no evidence that he had ever worked at Merrill Lynch, and after waiting an entire day he finally provided them with a statement. Parthenogenesis is a type of asexual reproduction in which offspring develop from unfertilized eggs, meaning there is no genetic contribution by a male. He continued trying to explain his actions, saying; ‘For many years, more than anything, I have wished that, with silence, I could somehow erase a story told by an immature young man.

It’s caused when cells known as polar bodies, which are produced with an animal’s egg and usually die, behave like sperm and fuse with the egg, triggering cell division. In a 2009 interview on the podcast “WTF,” the actor said he was still haunted. “I still have dreams of, like — you know those falling dreams?” he said.

The officials had first cut the rate to that record low in December 2008, after the housing bubble popped, the economy sank deep into recession and the banking system was on the brink of collapse. Robert Powell, a biology professor and snake expert at Avila University in Kansas City, said the Brahminy blind snake – a small burrowing animal native to southeast Asia commonly known as the flowerpot snake – has long been the only known snake that routinely reproduces without a male’s contribution. Powell agreed, saying a female snake usually can’t store sperm for longer than a year, although there are accounts of successful storage as long as three years. “Long-term storage is unusual.

The global slowdown emanating from Europe and China has recently thrown financial markets into turmoil, a risk specifically raised by the Fed in its statement Thursday. When you run into situations like this, you always wonder, ‘Is that a possibility?’” he said. “If nothing else, it’s an interesting phenomena. Just another sign that nature works in mysterious ways.” A J Hendershott, outreach and education regional supervisor for the conservation department, said there was some pride in having the first snake of its species reproduce through parthenogenesis. “This is the way you make discoveries when you keep things in captivity,” Hendershott said. “You learn things about what they’re capable of.”

Auto and home sales have rebounded sharply this year. ”An argument can be made for a rise in interest rates at this time,” Yellen said Thursday, even after explaining that the global uncertainties kept the Fed from raising rates.
