‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ Preview: Adam Shades Captain Sandy


It doesn’t take long for the drama to begin on board! The latest spinoff of Below Deck, Below Deck Sailing Yacht, officially premieres on Monday, February 3, but not everyone is a new face.

Chef Adam Glick, who started quite a bit of drama on Below Deck Mediterranean, is back to work on a sailboat.

“The part that really confuses me is that there are people from the boat here,” he tells the new kitchen staff in Us Weekly‘s exclusive sneak peek of the premiere. “Like, what the f–k have you guys been doing?”

During a confessional, he explains that the boat hasn’t left the docks in a while — something he’s familiar with — so things may change once the Parsifal III beings sailing around Corfu, Greece.

“I’ve seen this before, where a boat sits on the dock for too long. The crew gets very sedentary,” Adam says. “I mean, this boat is starting to actually look like Ciara [Duggan] and Paget [Berry]’s apartment.”

Ciara and Paget, the first mate and deckhand, respectively, met on board the sailboat and have been dating for four years. Oddly enough, in the first trailer for the season, Adam says he advises against those onboard getting romantically involved — even though he has in the past.

Later, Captain Glenn Shephard calls everyone up on the dock for a meeting, 21 hours before charter. He explains to the crew that he’s very laid back. “I like to hire people that are good at what they do and give them ownership of their departments and try to stay out of their way,” he tells the group — which is exactly what Adam wants to hear.

“Last season, the Med, I was perpetually under a microscope with Sandy, so it feels really good to be working with someone that actually trusts the crew,” Adam says in his confessional. “I guess the big question is whether or not he’ll be able to trust us all season long.”

Fans of Below Deck will absolutely eat up the drama that’s stirring on Below Deck Sailing Yacht.

The new spinoff premieres on Bravo Monday, February 3, at 9 p.m. ET.

Worldwide Support Pouring In For 13-Year-Old Cheerleading Captain Battling Brain Cancer – CBS Miami


MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A 13-year-old South Florida cheerleader battling brain cancer is receiving support from people all over the world.

As Emma Sorenson fights for her life, her parents said they are amazed at how she has inspired all those around her.

From the moment she stepped on the mat, Emma‘s cheerleading coach, Katya Goldstein, said she brought a special spirit to the gym.

“Her skills were spectacular,” said Goldstein. “On top of her skills being so good, she was always the best leader on her team.”

She was voted captain three times.

“Emma was your typical preteen,” said her mother, Kelley Sorenson. “Lively, fun, active, sassy, and a good student and great friend.”

Cheerleading, her mother said, has always been her passion.

However, in August 2018, everything changed. A seizure at the dinner table led to a shocking diagnosis.

After doctors performed an MRI, they found something in her brain.

“Never did we think it would be the worst case scenario, which is a stage-4 glioblastoma,” her mother said.

Only in middle school and diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, Emma was determined to fight hard.

“When we told her she has cancer, she was like, ‘OK.’ We said, ‘Do you understand? Do you have questions?’” explained Sorenson. “She was like, ‘Yeah, I have cancer. Do you want me to fall on the floor and cry? We will figure it out.’ Those were her exact words at 12 years old.”

“When she got diagnosed, she still kept coming to the gym and working hard,” said her coach. “It taught not only me, but the rest of the athletes in this gym, you continue to fight every day and you push hard. No matter what obstacles are in your way, you just continue to push and push and push.”

The cheerleading captain, who was always cheering on others, now needs her team to rally around her.

“Emma’s biggest advocates and our biggest source of help, whether it be emotional support, monetary support, whatever it may be, is her cheer village,” said Sorenson.

That village was so much bigger than they thought. Emma received letters from as far as Australia. The Miami Dolphins cheerleaders made her an encouraging video.

While the Sorensons knew their daughter could be the loudest cheerleader in the room, they had no idea her voice reached so far.

Around Christmas, Emma had to go into hospice care. Her family continues to hold on to hope. Mike Sorenson said seeing all the help and well-wishes his daughter has received has inspired him to have a new perspective on life.

“The bad in this world is very loud. It’s right in your face. You see it constantly,” he explained. “There’s a heck of a lot more good in this world than bad. By that I mean, it’s quiet. There’s no noise. It’s people doing things through acts of kindness.”

A family friend has set up a GoFundMe account for medical expenses. If you would like to help, click here.

Five people, including former Sheriff’s Captain, charged with illegal gun trafficking



Marco Garmo, 52, served as a sheriff’s deputy 27 years and was the captain in charge of the Rancho San Diego Station, according to a news release from the US Attorney’s Office.

He was charged with engaging in the business of dealing in firearms without a license, making false statements in acquisition of a firearm, obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting the possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and other offenses.

Besides making a profit, Garmo sold guns to cultivate future donors for his anticipated campaign for sheriff of San Diego County, the news release said.

“This office will not tolerate public servants who abuse their positions of trust for personal gain,” Assistant US Attorney Peter Mazza said in the news release. “Law enforcement members who step outside of the law are subject to the same standards as everyone else in our community. No one deserves the fair application of the law more than all of the law-abiding men and women who wear the badge honorably to protect our communities.”

The 23-count indictment unsealed Friday alleges sheriff’s department Lt. Fred Magana, 42; San Diego jeweler Leo Hamel, 62; firearms dealer Giovanni Tilotta, 38; and El Cajon resident Waiel Anton, 35, aided Garmo in operating an illegal gun trafficking business.

Hamel and Magana entered guilty pleas Friday to aiding and abetting Garmo’s business and will be sentenced in February 2020. Garmo and Anton were arrested Friday morning scheduled to be arraigned in federal court Friday afternoon. Tilotta has not been arrested yet, Mazza said.

Hamel’s lawyer, Michael Pancer, issued this statement: “Mr. Hamel is pleased to have this matter behind him and he is satisfied with the agreement he has made with the government. This will allow him to get back to his family and continue to the businesses he enjoys along with his numerous community service activities.”

Jeremy Warren, the attorney representing Tilotta, told CNN: “Mr. Tilotta is a small business owner with a spotless record. He was out of town visiting his family when he learned of the charges. He will return to San Diego immediately to address the matter in court.”

CNN sought comment from the other three men but has not heard back. Garmo was put on paid administrative leave after federal agents searched his home earlier this year and he has since resigned from the department, CNN affiliate KUSI reported.

Between March 2013 and February 2019, Garmo acquired about 146 guns and sold or transferred 104 of them, the US Attorney’s Office said. Many of those transactions involved “off-roster” handguns, which under California law could only be sold to law enforcement officers, not members of the general public, Mazza said.

Garmo would engineer “straw” purchases of firearms by certifying he was purchasing them for himself, but in reality, he bought the guns for someone else not in law enforcement, the indictment says.

The other four defendants helped Garmo by participating in the straw purchases, backdating paperwork to avoid the 10-day waiting requirement and helping Garmo’s customers obtain expedited weapons permits through illicit cash payments.

Tilotta, the owner of Honey Badger Firearms, repeatedly facilitated Garmo’s straw purchase of firearms by accepting and submitting falsified firearms records, according to the indictment. According to the indictment, Tilotta sold and transferred firearms inside Garmo’s office at the Rancho San Diego Station, in violation of state and federal law.

Garmo is facing drug trafficking charges for allegedly tipping off a cousin, a partner in an illegal marijuana dispensary, to impending searches by the sheriff’s department, the indictment says.

San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore issued a statement, saying he was “disappointed by the actions of these two individuals, as they do not reflect the values of this department and its thousands of trustworthy, hard-working employees.”

Ben Kallos under fire from Marvel for assuming ‘Captain America’ persona


Marvel Comics has sent an ominous warning to a New York City politician: Stop campaigning as Captain America!

The campaign of Councilman Ben Kallos, who is running for Manhattan borough president, sent out a “Superhero Alert” on Friday asking for donations in an a-letter that also featured him dressed as the iconic comic book hero.

Making matters worse, Kallos stole from Captain America’s trademark phrase, saying “he can do this all day” in the pitch.

The solicitation makes other superhero references.

“In all seriousness, while Captain America was pretty busy fighting Hydra, sleeper agents, Loki, Ultron, and Thanos, Ben’s been fighting for everyday New Yorkers,” the Kallos campaign pitch said.

“But he doesn’t have the Hulk to help him—he has you! And now, Ben’s hoping to continue to fight the good fight as Manhattan Borough President—so before our next big fundraising goal on November 30th, can you make a contribution so our campaign is ready for whatever comes our way?” the campaign pitch asks.

“And while the real Captain America has super strength, Ben’s power comes from us …And like Captain America, he can do this all day, but we’ve got to make sure he’s got the resources to keep fighting.”

But Marvel Comics was not amused — firing off a cease and desist letter to Kallos.

Captain America doesn’t take side in political races, a top lawyer for the comics’ franchise said.

“I write to request that your campaign refrain from using Marvel’s characters in its advertisements for your quest for the Borough Presidency or otherwise,” Marvel Comic’s deputy chief counsel Eli Bard’s said in a letter to Kallos, which the councilman posted on his Twitter. “While Marvel appreciates your obvious affection for our properties and welcome your support as a fan, we ask that our characters not be used for political purposes or to support political campaigns.”

Kallos was so amused by the letter that he shared it on on twitter.

“Got this charming letter from @Marvel and got a kick out of it, thought you might, too!,” he said.

Kallos, who represents Manhattan’s East Side, has long been a superhero fan, hosting viewings of movies such as “Avengers: End Game.”

The Marvel vs. Kallos fight was first reported by CBR.com

Asked if he would campaign as Captain America again, Kallos said, “Stay tuned.”
