The news comes less than one week after PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, joined a handful of creators in voicing his frustrations with YouTube over  video views declining and subscribers suddenly disappearing.

The general theory is that YouTube has a new algorithm that has caused glitches. Although some in the internet community have come up with a conspiracy theory that YouTube boosts ads on the “trending” tab and videos with more likes and comments.

"It is really upsetting how [YouTube] did this change. They won't explain what happened properly to anyone," PewDiePie said in his video uploaded last Friday. "It's not just me, a lot of YouTubers are noting this."The Swedish gamer said the inexplicable changes feel like a "kick in the face."

It's supposed to kick off on Friday on PewDiePie's channel. 

Some speculate PewDiePie may be building buzz around deleting his channel to draw people to the channel for the charity stream. 

PewDiePie, after all, has been known to prank viewers before. 

But in his tweet, PewDiePie said he plans on deleting the channel at 5 p.m. GMT (12 p.m. ET and 9 a.m. PT).

Sunday, 14 February 2016

Thursday afternoon, sources confirmed a long running rumor about Donald Trump’s citizenship.  Donald’s parents, Fred and Mary Trump, are widely known to be immigrants from Germany.  What many questioned was if his parents ever gained citizenship.  When researched, the National Security Association, found no documentation of Fred or Mary Trumps’ legal citizenship.
Many also know that Donald’s wife, Melania Trump, is also a German immigrant.  With the latest devestating news, Donald Trump has pulled out of the running for his Presidential campaign, leaving Marco Rubio as the Republican front-runner.

Not only has Trump been disqualified, if documentation is not found, but he is also currently facing deportation, along with his wife, to Germany.

Donald Trump polls, Donald Trump Iowa, Donald Trump New Hampshire

We’re only two days from kicking off the 2016 primary race in Iowa. While Donald Trump skipped the last chance to impress Iowa voters in favor of his own event, his rivals, including former Iowa frontrunner Ted Cruz vied to make a dent in Trump’s polling lead. We won’t see official polling results from that debate until nearly caucus time, but Trump’s national lead and his big margins in New Hampshire seem unlikely to subside. Trump also holds the national betting lead, as aggregated by PredictWise.

Here’s a look at the state of the race:

Though new numbers don’t reflect the debate, they also don’t show Trumps’s lead slowing. Public Policy Polling and NBC News/Marist/Wall Street Journal show Trump at a 31 and 32 percent share, respectively, 7 and 8 points above Cruz (23/25), with only Rubio above the 15 percent threshold required to contend in Iowa, at 18 percent in the NBC News poll.

The RealClearPolitics averages show Trump with a 6.2-point lead over Cruz at 31.4 to 25.2 percent, with Rubio running third at 14.4 percent.

FiveThirtyEight, which takes more than polls into account for its “polls-plus” forecast, is for the first time favoring Trump, giving him a 48 percent chance of taking Iowa, with Cruz at 41 and Rubio at 10. The polls-only forecast, which weights polls based on methodology and past accuracy, favors Trump with a 59 percent chance, compared to 32 for Cruz and single digits for everyone else.

New Hampshire

A new poll by Suffolk University shows a 15-point lead for Trump, 33 percent to 14 for Cruz and John Kasich. Another by Emerson College Polling Society put Jeb Bush at second with 18 percent, still 17 points behind Trump. According to RealClearPolitics polling averages, Trump has an 18.8-point lead with 31.3 percent of the vote, followed by Kasich at 12.5, Cruz at 12, Rubio at 10.7, and Bush at 10.

Fifty Shades Of Black is one of those instances where a parody deviating from its inspiration would have been fine. Most of the people who see it will probably be Wayans brothers fans rather than Fifty Shades Of Grey fans (the overlap can’t be that big, can it?), and neither group has the most discriminating taste to begin with. Yet Fifty Shades Of Black follows the plot of Fifty Shades Of Grey beat by beat, taking an oddly paced story full of baffling characterizations and warped moralizing and layering a bunch of crude sex and race humor on top of it. It’s an uphill battle if there ever was one.

Basically, if you’ve somehow managed to avoid E.L. James’... let’s call it “vision” up to this point, these movies are about a virginal college student, here named “Hannah” (Kali Hawk, evoking Dakota Johnson in bangs and mousy cardigans), who meets a mysterious, handsome billionaire, Christian Grey/Black (Marlon Wayans, with more facial expressions at any given moment than Jamie Dornan in the entire original film), who, as it turns out, is into some kinky shit in the bedroom thanks to an early experience with an older woman. He says he doesn’t do romance, she says she doesn’t do genital clamps, they have a creepily intense affair anyway. Helicopters, rain, and minimalist interior design feature prominently. Fifty Shades Of Grey ends with the lovers making eye contact as elevator doors close. Fifty Shades Of Black ends with Hannah getting her head smashed in those doors.

But even as it takes jabs at its source material’s quality, Fifty Shades Of Black suffers from similarly half-baked writing. Dialogue scenes between Wayans and Hawk all feel like abandoned stand-up bits, like an extended exchange of Cuba Gooding Jr. quotes that culminates with the line, “I’ve got to stop bingeing on Netflix.” Many of the scenes in the movie follow this same formula: elaborate setup based around a recent movie, repetitive physical gag/African-American oriented pop-culture reference, lame punchline, repeat. If comedy is like sex, all about buildup and release of tension, then this movie can’t get it up.

And that’s too bad, because when Wayans allows himself to deviate from his formula there are a few effective moments of un-self-conscious slapstick, like when he surprises Hannah by hiding in the laundry hamper in her bedroom. (There’s a reason Wayans has had such a long movie career. He’s a talented physical comedian.) Speaking of, this movie really plays up the stalker aspect of Christian Grey’s—sorry, Christian Black’s—personality, albeit not toward any sort of feminist end. In fact, Fifty Shades Of Black has something to offend everyone, including jokes about drugging women’s drinks, jokes about Woody Allen and Bill Cosby unrelated to the roofie joke, Black Lives Matter jokes, white women talking in exaggerated “urban” accents as a joke, and jokes about tricking a blindfolded woman into unprotected sex. And let’s not even talk about poor Jane Seymour’s racist adoptive mother character.

But beyond the initial “ew,” there’s really no need to get worked up about any of that, because they are dumb jokes even more so than offensive ones. It’s really pretty mind-blowing to think about all the time and money that went into hiring the crew and lighting the sets and decorating them—the art department did a great job re-creating the sets from Fifty Shades Of Grey, by the way—and all the photocopying and emailing and phone calls and spreadsheets that went on behind the scenes of this movie, just so Marlon Wayans could make a “vaginas are gross” joke. It doesn’t take a comedy genius to write this stuff; when lines like “I’d like to bite that lip” or “this is my playroom” from Fifty Shades Of Grey are invoked, the resulting gag goes exactly where you think it would. So if you think weird tongue stuff and exaggerated genital protheses are hilarious, this might be a mildly amusing 92 minutes. Just be quick about it—those Whiplash jokes aren’t getting any fresher.
