If you’ve been hankering for the old days of Call of Duty, then 2017 might finally be your year. Maybe. Because Activision has dropped the first actual information relating to this year’s COD release on its latest earnings call.
Late last year, KAWS dropped an extremely limited black BFF plush toy to coincide with his “KAWS: WHERE THE END STARTS” exhibition. As only 3,000 pieces were produced, the plush was sought-after and coveted by fans and collectors alike, and while most were unable to get their hands on the piece, it now looks like we’ll all be getting a second chance at the collectable.
Just today, KAWSONE announced that a few remaining stock of the plush was found at the studio, and will be made available tomorrow for purchase. No specific numbers have been given, but if the previous release of the plush was any indicator, you can’t be too careful; be sure to be swift.
WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork) — A U.S. appeals panel on Thursday refused to reinstate President Donald Trump’s ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled two days after hearing arguments on the legality of Trump’s immigration order, which temporarily banned travelers from seven predominately Muslim countries from coming to the United States.
The three-judge panel ruled that they would not block a lower-court ruling that suspended the ban and allowed previously barred travelers to enter the U.S.
An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is possible and likely.
U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle issued a temporary restraining order halting the ban last week after Washington state and Minnesota sued. The Justice Department appealed to the 9th Circuit.
Government lawyers argued that the ban was a “lawful exercise” of the president’s authority and that the seven countries have raised terrorism concerns.
The states said Trump’s executive order unconstitutionally blocked entry based on religion.
The president said Neil Gorsuch’s comments have been misrepresented. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, said that’s not the case.
At the White House on Thursday, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Alabama, was sworn in as attorney general.
“Today’s ceremony should be seen as a clear message to the gang members and drug dealers terrorizing innocent people: Your day is over,” Trump said.
Also on Capitol Hill, Gorsuch called on Congress while ignoring questions.
“Do you condemn remarks by the president about federal judges?” reporters asked.
Blumenthal met with Gorsuch on Wednesday and said the judge made comments critical of the president.
“He said to me, he finds disheartening and demoralizing the repeated abhorrent attacks by the president of the United States on the independence of the judiciary,” Blumenthal said.
However, the White House said Gorsuch’s comments were misrepresented and that he wasn’t criticizing Trump, just speaking generally.
“He literately went out of his way to say I’m not commenting on a specific instance. So to take what he said about a generalization and apply it to a specific, is exactly what he was intending not to do,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said.
The White House also responded Thursday to criticism about Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway, who promoted Ivanka Trump’s product line on Fox News.
“Go buy Ivanka’s stuff is what I would tell you. I’m going to, I hate shopping, I’m going to get some for myself today. It’s a wonderful line, I own some of it,” she said. “I’m going to give it a free commercial here. Go buy it today everybody. You can find it online.”
The White House said it has addressed the issue with Conway.
“Kellyanne has been counseled, and that’s all we’re going to go with. She’s been counseled on that subject, and that’s it,” Spicer said.
Trump also met with airline executives, saying what he calls a “big-league” tax announcement is coming soon to lower the burden on American businesses. He also signed executive orders targeting drug cartels, violent crimes and crimes against law enforcement officers.
Later Thursday night, the Senate will debate and possibly vote on the nomination of Tom Price to head the Dept. of Health and Human Services.

Jim Jones and Dipset are most certainly synonymous, so when Capo signed with Roc Nation, a few eyebrows were raised.
In an emotional interview on Hot 97 with Funkmaster Flex on Wednesday (Feb 8), Jim broke down his relationship with Dipset head honcho Cam’ron and the structure of Dipset.
“Cam’ was the person who got signed; he was the face card and I understood that,” Jim said. “I made everybody around me understand that. Like, he’s the prized possession; he cannot be touched, at all. He get touched, we [fall]. That was the method…even with Juelz [Santana]. They all know. I put my life on the line for this. I been on trial for this! I been on America’s Most Wanted for this! I been on Gang Files for this! I [have done] everything you can name. So when people play with me? I get real emotional, ’cause I operate off emotions as [The Diplomats] know from all the times they been with me. It’s never been a time where I backed down from any situation in the world! Except God. And I been up against 20, 30 deep by myself, where [The Diplomats] left me by myself. Ya heard? And I escape those situations and still come back and give niggas hi-fives and ‘what we doin’ today?’”
Jim also explained that despite their seemingly tight friendship, he was in no way riding Cam’s coat tails, but instead worked hard for every deal he had.
“[Cam’ron] gave me a platform. He gave me an opportunity, but he didn’t [simply] give it to me; I worked for it,” Jones continued. “Cam’ didn’t get the deal without me there. I was there every step of the way, from the year 1995 to the year 1999, you couldn’t find Cam’ without me. At all. Nothing. I don’t care if he had a bitch in the room with him; I was there with him.”
In regards to his personal sacrifices and what he ultimately felt drove the wedge between him and his former friend, Jones states that it was jealousy from Cam during the time when he was flying high with his smash hit “We Fly High (Ballin)” dominated the airwaves and made his label $27 million. Jim says that between his changing lawyers from Cam’ron’s attorney to the same lawyer 50 Cent used caused tension.
“I put everything on the line for this, and I took it with a smile,” Jones said tearfully. “Even when niggas doubted and downed me, even when I was on trial and niggas told me to take the plea. What plea! We don’t take pleas, nigga! Ya heard! And by the grace of God the trial gets dismissed, ’cause they ain’t find enough evidence, of a shootout, that happened Uptown, over Cam’ron! Every time you see me in the news, it was over Diplomats! When I get sued and shit like that, it was over Diplomats! When I’m kickin’ ass…when I come to the club 30 deep, it did what? It made The Diplomats look good! When I’m bangin’ Blood, it was good for them, right? It was good when it was good for them, ya heard? When it wasn’t good for them, oh, don’t nobody want to be part of the Bloods. But when the Bloods became poppin’ [and came with] notoriety [The Diplomats] wanted to turn Blood. So when people get on this radio and try to discredit me in any fashion, I don’t do that.”
As for why Dipset didn’t turn to be the powerhouse that everyone anticipated, Jimmy states it was the lack of dedication and work ethic that ultimately led to the group falling off.
“What I’ve done for people, no one has done for me. When I got out of bed at four o’clock [to help The Diplomats], I couldn’t call these niggas at four o’clock to come save me. You think there was ever a time in my life that I could call Cam’ to get out his bed to come save me?”
