- Another black eye for league as Manziel fan beaten
Cleveland Browns backup quarterback Johnny Manziel was in the middle of an early morning fight Saturday involving his entourage and a fan who sought to hug the NFL rookie. Cleveland Scene's website claimed Monday that a police report said authorities were called to a brawl that erupted around the incident involving 20 men and two security guards at The 9, a high-end apartment complex in Cleveland where many professional athletes live. Chris Gonos, the alleged victim in the incident, said the brawl began when he noticed Manziel while waiting for an elevator. As Gonos stepped toward Manziel, he was punched in the face and beaten by other men with the Browns quarterback, leaving Gonos with a swollen lip and swollen right eye.
- Cosmic Case of Missing Stars Baffles Scientists
A massive population of stars is missing, and scientists are stumped as to where it could be. New observations from the Hubble Space Telescope challenge a previous theory for the apparent disappearance of a massive number of stars. Because some star clusters around our Milky Way galaxy have fewer stars than observations suggest they should, astronomers suspected many of these stars were ejected from their clusters to ultimately find new homes in the Milky Way. "If these kicked-out stars were there, we would see them — but we don't!" Frank Grundahl of Aarhus University in Denmark, a co-author on the paper, said in a statement. The finding draws into question whether the missing stars were ever present at all, in globular clusters around Fornax or the Milky Way.
