Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch and Rob Gronkowski are two of the NFL’s most entertaining personalities, although for very different reasons. While Gronk is a gregarious, hard-partying lug, Lynch is often hilariously unfriendly during media interviews and will often respond with a single sentence to every question he gets asked. Conan O’Brien decided to get the two of them together during Super Bowl week down in Arizona to play the yet-to-be-released game Mortal Kombat X and the results were about as amusing as you’d expect. If you were playing video games in the ’90s, you’ll remember that the original Mortal Kombat caused a lot of controversy due to its gory finishing moves. Well, those moves are still in the new game and they’re

By Francesco Guarascio BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission is mulling a new law requiring telecoms companies to store communications data of EU citizens as part of its efforts to fight terrorism, after a top court struck down the previous one on privacy concerns. The deadly Islamist attacks in Paris on Jan. 7-9 have focused European Union leaders' minds on how to intensify counter-terrorism efforts at home, such as by creating an EU system for storing airline passenger data. According to minutes from a meeting of the executive European Commission last week, it is also considering whether it should reintroduce a new data retention law that would avoid being struck down by the European Court of Justice (ECJ). EU Home Affairs Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos noted "on the one hand, the fundamental role that telecommunications records could play in the fight against terrorism and, on the other, the importance of adopting a cautious and measured approach".

Arsenal is one of the most successful clubs in English football — last year it was valued at £1.3 billion ($1.9 billion), making it the fifth most valuable association football club in the world.
