Florida’s Kyle-to-Kyle connection returned in a big way after a two-week hiatus and put the sixth-ranked Gators on the verge of the Southeastern Conference championship game. Kyle Trask found Kyle Pitts for three touchdowns, including a 56-yarder in which the star tight end ran away from a cornerback, and Florida overcame a sluggish start to beat Kentucky 34-10 Saturday in the Swamp.

On Nov. 2, police received a call from a local jewelry salesman, Jay Brett Rind, reporting an accidental shooting at his apartment in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.According to an affidavit filed in court on Nov. 5, Rind told dispatchers that he’d met an old friend, 21-year fire department veteran James Gilliard, for dinner to offer him the “deal of a lifetime.” Rind planned to move to Mexico, and suggested he give his old pal, whom he’d met years prior when Gilliard owned a local pawn shop, two guns.The friends met for dinner at a local grill, according to the affidavit, where Gilliard had a glass of Merlot. Rind drank a Diet Coke. After the meal, the men drove to Rind’s apartment, where he showed Gilliard the two firearms.Rind told police that, in attempting to show Gilliard that one gun was empty, he inadvertently shot the captain in the stomach. Gilliard later died from the injury at a nearby hospital. A toxicology report showed he had traces of amphetamines, morphine, oxycodone, and the benzodiazepine alprazolam in his system when he died.> Our hearts are broken as we mourn the loss of our fire Captain James Gilliard. 48 year old Captain Gilliard passed away unexpectedly yesterday. He served Palm Beach County for 21 years. Our thoughts are with his family. pic.twitter.com/HOfSXOQoBH> > — PBC Fire Rescue (@PBCFR) November 3, 2020When investigators filed their affidavit three days later, they cited probable cause to charge Rind with one count of manslaughter. “Mr. Rind reiterated that he had no unsettling feeling towards Mr. Gilliard,” the affidavit read, “that they’ve been friends for years [since] the two met while they were in the retail business. Once again, he explained the incident was a total accident.”But the picture of the accident changed after Florida State Attorney’s Office investigator John P. Boyle reviewed 10 months of texts between the two men, revealing that “Mr. Rind, his roommate ‘Alex,’ and Mr. Gilliard were engaged in an ongoing conspiracy to distribute narcotics that Mr. Ring received prescriptions for, or brought back during his trips to Mexico.”“In the approximately 10 month period prior to the shooting,” the officer wrote in a subsequent affidavit filed on Nov. 25, “the defendant and victim appeared to exchange text messages dealing with the buying, selling, or trading of drugs on at least 77 separate occasions.”Boyle recommended Rind be charged with felony murder in the third degree. The affidavit does not dispute that the shooting may have been accidental.According to Boyle’s report, he found exchanges between the two men, sent from Nov. 2019 to Oct. 2020, that addressed all four of the drugs found in Gilliard’s system when he died. The texts included familiar slang like “addy” for adderall or “morph” for morphine, as well as less obvious terms, including “melle,” which the officer inferred to mean oxycodone.“They also discuss the distribution of ‘orange’ ‘oranges’ or ‘orange juice,’ the officer wrote. “I believe this is referring to Amphetamines, however; it could also be referring to morphine pills as the morphine pills located in the victim’s vehicle on the night of the shooting imprinted with ABG-60 were orange.”The texts also revealed the plans to meet for Gilliard’s final exchange. “I’m probably not going to Mexico until the 25th of November because I want to get the morph for myself, the mellie and the orange so you don’t need to help me out,” Rind texted, according to the report. “If we can make a deal I think this could be the best one I have made with you any idea when we can get together?” Gilliard responded that he could shoot for Monday or Tuesday. They met up on Monday, Nov. 2.Rind was released on a $20,000 bond. The court filed an order of no contact to prevent him from contacting Gilliard’s family or next of kin. Ring will appear in court on Dec. 10.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

This week, Netflix announced that The Queen's Gambit made history as the streaming service's most-viewed scripted limited series. Although it still hasn't bested the unscripted Tiger King, which hit the streamer at the start of quarantine, The Queen's Gambit received immediate acclaim for its stunning set and costume design, compelling story, and lead performance by Anya Taylor-Joy. In just seven episodes, The Queen's Gambit brings us from the 1950s to the late '60s as orphaned chess prodigy Beth Harmon (Taylor-Joy) grows up, struggles with addiction, and competes to become the world's best player. The mini-series has all the makings of a great period piece, coming-of-age story, and sports drama, but very few shows successfully blend all of these elements — maybe The Queen's Gambit raked in tens of millions of views, in part, because there's nothing out there quite like it.But if you're one of the many, many Netflix users who enjoyed the entire series in one week (or even weekend), allow us to introduce you to your next binge-watch. No, Netflix doesn't have any other chess dramas unfortunately, but there are plenty of other shows with similar backdrops, themes, and complicated characters. Here are 15 picks to try before your next Queen's Gambit rewatch.GodlessStream it on NetflixAs far as plot is concerned, this Western drama about a man trying to outrun an outlaw gang leader is a far cry from Beth Harmon's story. But 2017's Godless, another Netflix limited series created by The Queen's Gambit mastermind Scott Frank, received similar critical praise for excellent storytelling and stunning cinematography.Peaky BlindersStream it on NetflixIf you can't get enough Anya Taylor-Joy, you can find her in this award-winning BBC period drama, available to stream on Netflix. Like The Queen's Gambit, Peaky Blinders features time jumps and an expansive timeline, bringing Tommy Shelby's (Cillian Murphy) family from 1919 to 1929.EuphoriaStream it on NOW TVLike The Queen's Gambit, Euphoria is a character-driven coming-of-age story that doesn't shy away from unglamorous truths about addiction and mental illness. Cynical protagonist Rue Bennett (Zendaya) isn't necessarily similar to Beth, but she's an equally compelling character.11.22.63Stream it on Prime VideoThis Hulu mini-series, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, follows two friends who time-travel to the '60s and attempt to stop the assassination of John F. Kennedy. If you're looking for another quick binge that will transport you back in time, look no further than this supernatural drama.The CrownStream it on NetflixNetflix dropped the new season of The Crown shortly after The Queen's Gambit, and it's unsurprising that fans of the second are flocking to the first. Although The Crown tells a sprawling story more rooted in historical events, the first few seasons cover the same era as Queen's Gambit, and both shows tackle complex familial dynamics, power, and control.The English GameStream it on NetflixThe Queen's Gambit reminds viewers that chess isn't just a game; it's a competitive sport. If you're looking for another historical sports drama that digs into the professional triumphs and personal issues of skilled athletes, try Netflix's six-part mini-series created by the executive producer of Downton Abbey.Russian DollStream it on NetflixRussian Doll isn't a limited series — a second season was confirmed last year — but the first season of this Netflix drama is as watchable and airtight as The Queen's Gambit. In this dark dramedy, Nadia (Natasha Lyonne) becomes stuck in a time loop and must confront her past (and current) issues.Cable GirlsStream it on Netflix This Spanish-language period piece, about four young women who begin working at a telecommunications company in Spain circa 1928, is a perfect pick for fans of The Queen's Gambit who want another historical drama about women breaking boundaries in male-dominated spaces. Call the MidwifeStream it on Netflix or BBC iPlayerAnother feminist period drama, Call the Midwife centres around the work and lives of midwives in the '50s and '60s. The BBC series is on its tenth season, and has already been renewed for an eleventh. If you need to catch up, you can stream the first eight series on Netflix, or the first nine on iPlayer.The Haunting of Bly ManorStream it on Netflix.The stand-alone follow-up to Netflix's Haunting of Hill House tells the story of Dani (Victoria Pedretti), an American nanny who finds herself stuck in what might be a haunted house while battling her own demons. Bly Manor is technically a horror series, but its emotional themes and backstories make it a solid psychological drama, too. The UndoingStream it on NOW TV.Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant star in this psychological thriller about a woman whose husband becomes a primary suspect in a murder case. Like The Queen's Gambit, The Undoing is a gripping mini-series that your whole timeline is probably discussing right now. Episodes are currently airing, and you can catch up on NOW TV.Mrs. AmericaStream it on BBC iPlayerThis FX and Hulu series tells the true story of the fight to pass the Equal Rights Amendment in America. It's set in the '70s, so the costumes and soundtrack are just slightly different from those of The Queen's Gambit, but it's a similarly stunning period portrait with excellent performances by Cate Blanchett, Uzo Aduba, and more.Sharp ObjectsStream it on NOW TVSharp Objects, an HBO mini-series based on Gillian Flynn's novel of the same name, is clearly a mystery, but fans and critics also praised its complex, troubled characters, depiction of mental illness and addiction, and balance of drama and substance.Killing EveStream it on BBC iPlayerLike The Queen's Gambit, Killing Eve has a straightforward premise — an assassin and a detective chase after each other, growing more and more obsessed — but the fascinating characters, twisted relationships, and story make it an easy binge-watch. The first three seasons are available to stream on iPlayer.Mad MenStream it on Prime VideoIf you love the costumes, setting, and overall style of The Queen's Gambit, you'll love Mad Men, another drama set in the '60s and featuring another (different kind of) complicated lead. The best part? This is a show that won't end after seven episodes. It actually spans seven seasons, and you can watch them all on Prime Video.Like what you see?

A mix of grassroots groups have held the weekly protests, saying Netanyahu should step down while he is on trial for corruption and because of his handling of the coronavirus in Israel. After six months of demonstrations and with wintry weather setting in, the protest crowds have started to shrink. Others hoisted model submarines, a reference to a scandal over an Israeli purchase of German submarines in which several Netanyahu associates have been implicated.
