<![CDATA[Rihanna Urges World Leaders to #FundEducation]]> Mon, 26 Jun 2017 16:33:26 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/Rihanna20.jpg

Rihanna is known for calling people out on social media, but this time she’s doing it for a good cause.

Over the past week, the singer has been tweeting world leaders urging them to “#FundEducation” as part of her work with the Global Partnership for Education.

So far Rihanna has tweeted at French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Argentine president Mauricio Macri, and the press secretary for German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Her goal is to get heads of state to commit $3.1 billion dollars to help educate children in developing nations.

The push comes ahead of the annual G20 summit, a meeting of the 20 major world economies. The forum will take place July 7-8, in Hamburg, Germany.

Rihanna also urged her fans to join her in reaching out to the G20 members. 

This is not the first time Rihanna has done philanthropic work for education. Last year, after being appointed as global ambassador to champion education for the Global Partnership for Education, she visited Malawi to help teach math and fundraise. She also started a scholarship to help international students coming to the United States for college.

Between wizards, rock climbers, and gender non-conforming people, many of the 137 new emojis coming soon to your phone's keyboard may have come from the minds of ordinary texters, NBC News reported. 

Like all four batches before it, the latest set of emojis was approved by the Unicode Consortium, an international organization that ensures all words and images are read the same way on devices everywhere. The newest release should appear in your next system update. 

Anyone can propose an emoji to the Unicode Consortium, which narrows down candidates based on factors like use and popularity in a lengthy process.

"It's not like the Supreme Court, they’re not going off into some star chamber in robes or anything. It’s not like that at all," consortium member Greg Welch told NBC News.

<![CDATA[Conan O'Brien to Return to San Diego for 2017 Comic-Con]]> Sun, 25 Jun 2017 21:53:11 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/213*120/456023519.jpg

Late-night funnyman Conan O’Brien plans to return to San Diego Comic-Con International (SDCC) next month, hosting his talk show from downtown San Diego as the four-day pop culture convention unfolds.

From July 19 through July 22, O’Brien will embark on another edition of what's known to fans as "ConanCon." He will tape his TBS show at the historic Spreckels Theater on Broadway – the same venue he took over in 2015 and 2016 during Comic-Con.

In those prior "ConanCon" years, O'Brien hosted a slew of high-profile celebrities at the San Diego tapings, including actress Jennifer Lawrence and her “Hunger Games” co-stars in 2015, as well as the cast of “Game of Thrones.” In 2016, the stars of "Suicide Squad" dropped in.

For four days, fans lined up outside Spreckels Theater hoping to catch a glimpse of their favorite celebrities and, of course, snag a selfie with O’Brien.

Now, ConanCon will go down again -- likely with the same fervor from fans.

On Friday, O'Brien's Team Coco website announced that those who have badges to next month's Comic-Con could begin requesting free tickets to the tapings.

Comic-Con attendees can register here to be placed on a waiting list for four San Diego tapings: 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 19; 3 p.m. on Thursday, July 20; 4 p.m. on Friday, July 21; 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 22.

The tapings are for fans age 16 and older. Putting in a request for tickets doesn't guarantee entry -- fans will have to wait for notification via email if they're among the lucky chosen ones. They will have to pick up their tickets at a specified time before the taping.

O’Brien’s show will also make a limited number of standby tickets available on the day of each taping. Those tickets will be available just before showtime each day -- if there are any empty seats to fill in the theater. Most of these seats will be single seats throughout the venue. For those standby passes, fans can go to the Team Coco Ticket Space at 969 1st Avenue at 8 a.m. on the morning of the taping they’d like to attend. There, wristbands will be distributed to the first 200 fans and hopefuls will be given details on a location and time to return to see if they will be getting into the taping.

For more information on tickets to Conan at Comic Con, call (818) 977-3056 or reach out via email to tickets@conacotv.com.

For now, O’Brien’s celebrity guests for his Comic-Con tapings are unknown, but if it’s anything like last two years, some very recognizable stars will walk through those doors at Spreckels Theater, ready to get their geek on with Coco.

San Diego Comic-Con runs July 20 through July 23 at the San Diego Convention Center.

Stephen Colbert is on a mission to Russia.

The host of CBS' "The Late Show" is on assignment there for a future broadcast, the network said Thursday.

Colbert, whose steady political wisecracks have been accompanied by a rise in his ratings, wasted no time in taking a dig at President Donald Trump over the possibility of tapes involving fired FBI Director James Comey.

"Don't worry, Mr. President. I'm in Russia. If the "tapes" exist, I'll bring you back a copy!" Colbert tweeted.

His message came after Trump said on Twitter that he has no recordings of his private conversations with Comey, despite an earlier suggestion that they might exist.

Colbert also posted a photo of himself wearing a trench coat and in front of a grand building that appeared to be the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg.

A CBS spokeswoman said she had no information on where Colbert was visiting or how the material he was gathering in Russia would be used.

“We love helping other families,” Drew Scott said. “But we are renovating houses for them ... at least here, I can put all the bells and whistles that I want in the house.”

Alec Baldwin caused quite a stir on a New Jersey college campus when he appeared in his trademark President Trump costume. 

The "30 Rock" actor and recent regular guest star on "Saturday Night Live," visited Monmouth University Tuesday sporting his recognizable Trump wig and a red tie. 

Students who spotted Baldwin told NJ.com he was taking photos in front of Wilson Hall and Murry Guggenheim Library, fashioned to look like the White House. 

"Baldwin was in full Trump attire," 20-year-old senior Richard Felicetti told NJ.com. "Onlookers stood in the library parking lot and lawn as Trump exited the library, walked down the stairs and had a conversation with who I'm assuming was his faux security team," said Felicetti.

The actor waved to onlookers, doing his classic Trump hand movements. Students thought he was taking photos for "SNL," but the university wouldn't confirm that to NJ.com.

<![CDATA[New Deal Makes Raider's Derek Carr NFL's Highest Paid QB]]> Thu, 22 Jun 2017 20:51:32 -0700 http://media.nbcsandiego.com/images/180*120/kahrpayydayye.jpg

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr wanted to get his contract extension done before training camp next month.

He got his wish.

Carr and the team have reached what is reported to be a five-year, $125 million deal, according to a story by Ian Rapoport of NFL.com Thursday morning.

An excited Carr confirmed that report on social media.

“Now it’s done!” he wrote on Twitter. “From the jump I’ve wanted to be a Raider 4 life. One step closer to that! Blessed!!! Business done! Let’s just play now!!!”

The deal is expected to pay Carr about $25 million per season, which will make him the NFL’s highest-paid quarterback. He’s heading into the final year of his first deal, signed after he was taken in the second round of the 2014 draft. That deal will pay him about $5.4 million this season, with the new terms kicking in starting in 2018.

The Raiders have been built with salary-cap flexibility under general manager Reggie McKenzie and are a reported $31 million under the salary cap.

Earlier this offseason, the Raiders signed defensive end-linebacker Khalil Mack to a long-term extension. Still to be done is a deal for starting guard Gabe Jackson.

Former "Glee" guest star Charice Pempengco announced on Twitter that he will now go by the name Jake Zyrus.

Zyrus, who gained fame for his portrayal of Sunshine Corazon on "Glee”, had openly contemplated his gender identity in the past. During a 2014 "Where Are They Now" special, he told Oprah Winfrey "My soul is male," but also noted, "I’m not going to go through that stage where I change everything. I’ll cut my hair and wear boy clothes and everything, but that’s all."

Zyrus appears to have fully embraced the decision, thanking supporters on social media for their support.
