Russia reports computer bug on International Space Station

Russia reports computer bug on International Space Station Russia's space agency says that one of the International Space Station's computers has malfunctioned, but the glitch doesn't pose any risks to the crew. Roscosmos said Tuesday that one of three computers in the station's Russian module has failed. It said Russian flight controllers plan to reboot it Thursday. The agency emphasized that the computer problem wouldn't affect the station's crew — NASA's Serena Aunon-Chancellor, Russian Sergei Prokopyev and German Alexander Gerst. It said two other computers can maintain the station's operation. The glitch follows last month's aborted launch of a new station crew.

Fresh off of taking shots at a New York Post sports media writer and ranting about the new Mets general manager, Mike Francesa is in another feud with a Boomer Esiason show that happens to broadcast on the same network as his: WFAN.

Francesa has been in fights with Esiason's morning show before - when Craig Carton was a co-host, they pair would regularly rip Francesa on the air. And this one was sparked by Francesa actually listening to Boomer and Gio (which is now co-hosted by Gregg Giannotti) and ripping the show for talking about an alleged altercation between fellow WFAN host Bart Scott and a former Francesa producer.

Report: Voters turned away at Detroit polling site due to missing voting machines

Report: Voters turned away at Detroit polling site due to missing voting machines Voters were reportedly turned away at a polling site in Detroit early on Election Day due to missing voting machines. A local ABC station reported that the voters were not able to vote at a polling location set up at Martin Luther King Jr. High School shortly after the polls opened because the precinct was ill-prepared. According to the news station, the polling site was temporarily closed off to voters because election workers were unable to locate the voting machines.

In its statement, the station acknowledged that it was in discussions with Mr. Francesa about his return, adding, “We also confirm that we are very Mr. Francesa did not respond to messages left at his home phone requesting comment. Mike Levine, an agent with Creative Artists Agency, which is

Mike Francesa - Michael Kay is a real battle with a shrinking leader. Francesa could have remained at his old salary at many times during his retirement tour. The name is owned by WFAN, and although it is Francesa ’s first name and his old partner Chris Russo’s nickname, they would need to

Then, he went into how much the show "stinks," opining that Giannotti is "short on ability" and asked him to stop doing imitations of the drive-time host who returned from retirement earlier this year:

He ended it with a challenge: "Play that tape tomorrow morning."

Guess what Esiason and Giannotti played the next morning? It included the latter imitating Francesa again:

Previous battles involving these two include the morning show telling the station's program director that he didn't like Francesa and his former partner Chris "Mad Dog" Russo ripping them.
