Hailey Baldwin reportedly files trademark for 'Hailey Bieber'

Hailey Baldwin has filed a trademark to register the name “Hailey Bieber.”

The Blast obtained documents filed by Baldwin on Oct. 10, nearly a month after her reported courthouse wedding to singer Justin Bieber. The filing was for the purposes of a clothing line, the website reported.

People reported that, according to a source, the wedding was Baldwin’s doing.

“The city hall marriage was her idea. It was ‘you and me against the world,’” the unnamed source said. “Let’s show (everyone) we’re serious and it’s not just some crazy fling.”

Although Baldwin denied she was married in a since-deleted tweet last month, The Blast reported that the two referred to each other as husband and wife during a visit to Stratford Perth Museum in Stratford, Ontario, Oct. 1.

“We were so pleased to have such a warm and special guest visit the museum yesterday (along with her very special husband,” the museum said in an Instagram caption of a chalkboard message Baldwin wrote to Bieber.

“Justin very graciously introduced Hailey as his wife. Perhaps just a term of endearment? We loved their visit,” the museum said in the post’s comments.

Texas Christian football star suspended after arrest on assault charge

Texas Christian University suspended wide receiver KaVontae Turpin, who was arrested Sunday on an assault charge, coach Gary Patterson said in a Big 12 conference call Monday.

>> Read more trending news 

Turpin, who scored two touchdowns in the Horned Frogs’ 52-27 loss to Oklahoma, was charged with assault with bodily injury to a family member, the Fort Worth Star Telegram reported.

Turpin, a senior, is TCU’s all-time leader in special teams touchdowns with six in his career, WFAA reported. He scored on a career-best 99-yard touchdown against Oklahoma.

“Texas Christian University is aware that one of its students was recently arrested for a reported domestic situation,” school officials told Star-Telegram in a statement. “The university takes these types of reports very seriously and is continuing to gather information to determine next steps. TCU expects its students to behave in an ethical manner, abide by campus policies and adhere to state and federal law.”

Patterson said Turpin was unlikely to play against Kansas on Saturday.

“Everybody knows how I handle things like this,” Patterson said on the conference call. “My track record usually speaks for itself if you go back through it. We’re gathering information, but at this point in time he probably won’t play against Kansas.

“We have not received anything as far as information, police report, anything else. At this point in time, he knows how that all goes. All of (the players) do.”

Turpin was released from Tarrant County Jail, a spokesman said. The assault charge is a class A misdemeanor, and Turpin could face up to a year in prison and up to a $4,000 fine if convicted, the Star-Telegram reported.

A Fort Worth police spokesman said the incident involved Turpin and a woman, the newspaper reported. The spokesman did not say how Turpin and the woman were related but said a dating relationship would fall under “family member” assault.

Vickie Frederick, of Elkhart, had tickets to Brooks’ concert at Notre Dame Stadium, but was unable to attend because of a bronchitis attack, the television station reported.

She was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer two years ago, but it had gone into remission. Delighted, Frederick, who said she is a big Brooks fan, bought tickets to the singer’s concert at the stadium, WSBT reported.

However, doctors told her three weeks ago that her cancer had returned and had spread to her lungs. Doctors told her the cancer was terminal.

“It’s hard to come back and explain to your family that, ‘I’m hit with it again,’” Frederick told the television station.

Although Frederick missed the concert, her two children attended and sent her an email. When she opened it, there was a video from Brooks, promising her tickets to a future concert of her choice, WSBT reported. Brooks also offered to pay her flight to the venue, the television station reported.

“I just went, ‘Oh my gosh, you know!!' And I said ‘Are you for real?!’” Frederick said. “I didn’t have any words.

“I will get well enough because I want to see Garth Brooks,” Frederick told WSBT, adding that she wanted to attend a concert next spring. “I’m not going to stop fighting until God tells me it’s time to go home and until the end. We will have to continue to prove him wrong.”

Princess for day: Girl with autism mistakes bride for Cinderella

It was a magical wedding not only for the bride and her new husband, but also for a complete stranger who believed she had walked into a fairy tale story.

Olivia Spark and her new husband were taking their wedding photos at Akron Falls Park in New York on Oct. 13, WIVB reported

Layla Lester, 5, was there too and thought her dream had come true -- Cinderella was at her park. 

“She just goes running over, arms wide open, [yelling] ‘Cinderella, Cinderella,’” Jessica Lester told WIVB

The photographer, Nicole Wickins, started taking photos of the “princess” meet and greet. 

>> Read more trending news 

“I was really caught off-guard because there’s a little girl that none of us had known, so I wasn’t sure if I should take pictures. But it kind of just felt like the thing to do,” Wickins told WIVB

Jessica Lester told WIVB sometimes her daughter doesn’t know how to deal with people, especially ones she doesn’t know, because she has autism. But in the little girl’s mind, Spark was familiar because, in Layla’s eyes, she was the Disney princess.

“She [Spark] was just so sweet with her [Layla] and just keep talking to her and asking her questions. Layla loved her and she fell in love so fast,” Lester told WIVB.

But it wasn’t just the the starstruck little girl’s mother who had a lasting impression of the interaction.

“I was flattered. I was like in tears that she thought I was a princess, and it just made my day absolutely more amazing than what it already was,” Spark told WIVB.

Spark met Layla again this weekend and gave her gifts. Layla is still calling Sparks Cinderella. 

But the story could be even more magical. The chance meeting has inspired the community to help get Layla to meet the “real” Cinderella. 

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help send Layla and the rest of her family to Walt Disney World so she can meet all of the Disney princesses, WIVB reported.

Grandparents who went viral with ‘The Notebook’-inspired photos renew vows after 60 years

After 57 years married, their love story went viral with a photoshoot inspired by the Nicholas Sparks’ book-turned-film “The Notebook.”

Now two years later, Clemma and Sterling Elmore celebrated the wedding they never had when they got married.

The long-lasting couple got married six decades ago at their local courthouse, WIS reported

But in 2018, they finally walked down the aisle at a church to say “I do.”

This year’s celebration of love and a long life together began with Clemma Elmore popping the question to her husband Sterling. 

And then like any bride, she picked out her dream dress.

Moliere Bridal in Oklahoma City let Clemma be the princess for the day and gave her the chance to pick any dress she wanted, Stacy Welch-Christ, owner of Mary Evelyn Photography, told WIS.

“She hollered out, ‘I say yes to this dress’ when she found the one,” Welch-Christ said of the magical shopping moment. 

All gussied up in their finery, the couple went to the altar to renew their love for one another.

“We had it at our little white church house, which we call ‘Our Place to Gather’ and even though it rained all day, we were all in tears with how special it was. The little bridesmaids sang ‘Amazing Grace’ and it was just like we went back in time in that little church house,” Welch-Christ told WIS.

And “The Notebook” theme that they set in 2016 carried through to the 2018 wedding, Welch-Christ said.

In a social media post on Saturday, Blair, 46, said she decided to go public with her diagnosis after a costume designer on her Netflix series showed amazing kindness in helping her into a costume.

“She carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my top over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself,” Blair said on Instagram.

Blair said that kindness prompted her to tell others about how’s she’s handling the disease, which she was diagnosed with in August.

“I have MS and I am OK. But if you see me, dropping crap all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It takes a whole day for me alone. Thank you and may we all know good days amongst the challenges,” she said.

Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system that is unpredictable and often disabling, according to the National MS Society.

There is no known cause or cure, but researchers believe it is triggered by environmental factors in people genetically predisposed to the disease.

High school seniors building prosthetic hand for 4-year-old girl

Four-year-old Hansika Hamre has a rare genetic condition that caused her to be born without a right hand. Now, four seniors from Lakota East High School are using advanced technology to give her a new one.

According to her parents, Hansika is a very active little girl.

>> Read more trending news 

“She climbs ladders and she plays and she bounces balls,” Hansika’s mom, Cara Hamre, told our news partners at WCPO.

Hansika was born with symbrachydactyly, a condition that causes babies to be born with shorter digits or missing fingers and toes. Her left hand is fully developed; her right hand is not. Usually, her mother said, it’s not an issue.

“She adapts very well,” Hamre said. “You wouldn’t know that she was missing her fingers.”

However, she added that some activities — zipping up a zipper, for example — present a real challenge.

That’s why a group of Lakota East seniors is working to build her a prosthetic hand that will, hopefully, make daily tasks like that one easier.

“We wanted to do a project that makes a direct difference in someone’s life,” said Cali Hoffman, one of the Lakota seniors who is working on the project.

“We got to meet her and it was really sweet, just kind of tugged at your heart strings a little bit,” Hoffman said. “(We were like) we have to deliver, you know … you don’t want to disappoint her.”

Hoffman and her classmates — Logan Spilie, Ben Roth, and Sam Billisits — co-presented the details of their project to engineers at Kinetic Vision, where engineers used a 3-D scanner to capture geometric data of Hansika’s hands.

“We’ll be able to leverage these data sets to scale (and) change geometry,” Kinetic Vision lead imaging specialist Alex Doukas said. “If we need to do any sort of changes, this will all be manipulatable data.”

Butler Tech and Lakota East engineering instructor Ken Kinch said he wants to send his students into college with applicable engineering skills and working to help Hansika will get them just that. Their capstone project will include taking 3D scans, finding materials and then finding a way to 3D print the prosthetic hand.

“The (3D) scan (done at Kinetic Vision) was so, so big for us because now we can model something and actually overlay it over top of that 3D scan to make sure the fit’s right,” Kinch said.

The group will work on Haniska’s prosthetic, which they hope will be able to grow alongside its user, throughout the school year.

Hansika’s project is one of 17 different ones at Lakota’s East and West high schools, which are projects also guided by faculty at Butler Technology and Career Development Schools. Every capstone project by the students is designed to accomplish a single mission of helping the community in some way.

“It’s exciting for us to engage with students and make them aware of the latest (research and development) tools,” said Jim Topich, VP of engineering at Kinetic Vision, which has partnered with Lakota Schools and Butler Tech since 2014.

“At the end of the day, the real reward in harnessing all this technology is when we all see Hansika using a functional new hand,” he said.

2018 World Series: Some things you might not know about Red Sox vs. Dodgers

Although the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers are two of major league baseball’s storied franchises, this is only the second time the teams have met in the postseason.

>> Read more trending news 

In the 1916 World Series, the Red Sox defeated the Dodgers, who were then based in Brooklyn and were known as the Robins in honor of manager Wilbert Robinson, in five games.Like 1916, the Red Sox will host the World Series opener Tuesday night in Boston, but it will be the first time the Dodgers will play a postseason game at Fenway Park. In 1916, the Red Sox played their World Series at Braves Field, which had a larger capacity than Fenway Park.

>> World Series 2018: Schedule, times released

The Red Sox won the first two games of the 1916 classic, and then clinched their fourth World Series championship in Game 5, also played at Braves Field.

Game 2 featured the World Series pitching debut of Babe Ruth. Although Ruth was on the roster for the 1915 World Series, when the Red Sox defeated the Philadelphia Phillies in five games, he only appeared as a pinch-hitter in Game 1. The Babe would have a more prominent role in 1916, pitching all 14 innings in Boston’s 2-1 victory.

With two outs in the first inning, Ruth allowed an inside-the-park home run to Brooklyn’s Hi Myers. He shut out Brooklyn for the next 13⅓ innings.

Ruth’s effort began a record 29⅔ shutout innings for Ruth over the next 23 months, a record that would stand until it was broken by Whitey Ford in 1961.

“[F]or 14 innings this Boston defense formed a long, wide wall of steel and stone back of Babe Ruth,” Grantland Rice wrote in the Boston Globe the nt day. “And against this wall Brooklyn rebounded to her second defeat.”

By winning the pennant Saturday night, the Dodgers tied the Giants for the most in National League history with 23. The Dodgers have won six World Series titles -- five while playing in Los Angeles -- but have not won the championship since defeating the Oakland Athletics in 1988.

The New York Yankees own the major-league mark with 40 American League pennants and 27 World Series titles.

The Red Sox, meanwhile, have won 14 AL pennants and eight World Series titles. Boston has gone 3-for-3 in World Series appearances in the 21st century, sweeping St. Louis in 2004 and Colorado in 2007, while defeating the Cardinals in six games in 2013.

That borders on a dynastic run for teams not named the Yankees. But the Red Sox were a dynasty of their own a century ago. Their victory in the 1916 World Series was their second in a row and third in five seasons, and Boston would win again against the Cubs in 1918 before suffering an 86-year World Series title drought.

Interestingly, the Red Sox won the first World Series in 1903, but even though they won the pennant in 1904 they did not play in the Series. That’s because the NL-champion New York Giants refused to participate in the series.

What makes this year’s matchup intriguing is that the two teams haven’t met in the Series. The Red Sox and Dodgers have combined for 42 winning seasons, 25 playoff appearances and six pennants since the wild-card era began, ESPN reported.

In their 19 previous World Series, the Dodgers have gone 7-12 in Game 1, but have won the opener in their last two appearances (1988 and 2017). The Red Sox, meanwhile, are 9-3 in their previous Game 1 appearances.

Oddsmakers at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook have installed the Red Sox as slight favorites to win this year’s Series, ESPN reported.

Boston is a minus-135 favorite, while the Dodgers are plus-115 to win it all. That means that a $135 bet on the Red Sox will pay $100, while a $100 bet on the Dodgers will pay $115.

Amy Schumer backs Colin Kaepernick, won't appear in Super Bowl ads 

Comedian Amy Schumer is following pop singer Rihanna’s lead in not participating in Super Bowl LIII.

>> Read more trending news 

In a Friday post on Instagram, Schumer said she has decided to turn down any offers to participate in commercials for the Feb. 3 game at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The move, she said, was in support of the “take-a-knee” protests by NFL players that was started in 2016 by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, ESPN reported. Kaepernick began taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racism and police brutality.

“Hitting the NFL with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them,” Schumer wrote. “I know opposing the NFL is like opposing the NRA. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living? 

Earlier this week, Rihanna turned down an offer to headline the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show as a way to support Kaepernick.

In 2016, Schumer appeared with Seth Rogen in a politically-themed Bud Light ad, "Raise One to Right Now," during Super Bowl 50, ESPN reported.

In her Instagram post, Schumer said she hoped Maroon 5, set to headline the halftime show at Super Bowl LIII, will reconsider and withdraw.

She also suggested that white NFL players should join black players by taking a knee.

“Why not kneel next to your brothers?” Schumer wrote. “Otherwise, how are you not complicit?” 

>> Rihanna turns down Super Bowl halftime show

Kaepernick was released by the 49ers after the 2016 season and hasn’t played since.

He filed a grievance against the NFL and team owners last year, accusing them of conspiring to keep him from playing in the league.

Nike ad campaign featuring Kaepernick as the face of the athletic retail giant’s “Just Do It” 30th anniversary has sparked debate, controversy and boycotts.

Schumer was arrested Oct. 4 during a protest in Washington against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, CNN reported.

It was not clear if Schumer was approached to appear in an ad to run during Super Bowl LIII, ESPN reported.

Anthony Alfano, 9, of Melrose Park, will be dressed in a costume his father makes from scratch, WLS reported. This year, Anthony's costume will showcase the waiting room scene from the movie “Beetlejuice."
