The MTA flooded a subway stop on purpose because 'climate change is real.' Here's how they're prepping New York for the next Superstorm Sandy.
Kaye Blegvad On Wednesday afternoon, New Yorkers encountered a fully submerged subway station in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. One commuter tweeted out a photo of the flooded stairs, asking the city's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to explain themselves. The MTA responded that it had flooded the platform for four hours to test the efficacy of a new flex gate that would "seal off a subway entrance." The MTA added: "We're doing this because climate change is real. In 2012, Superstorm Sandy flooded nine subway stations and two inter-borough tunnels, causing billions of dollars' worth of damage. As our planet warms, superstorms like Sandy and other hurricanes are expected to get stronger and wetter. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. On Wednesday, New Yorker Kaye Blegvad was stymied in her attempt to board the G train at Broadway Station in Williamsburg. The entrance and stairs to the subway platform at the corner of Broadway and Union Avenue were completely underwater, and there wasn't a rain cloud in sight.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Video shows the aftermath of a NYC subway train that derailed and crashed into a wallSee Also:Painfully slow hurricanes, deadly heat, and cities without water: What the climate crisis will look like in the next 10 years, according to expertsHeat waves and floods shattered records.

Barry Bonds never won a World Series. Here’s what left him empty-handed.
Barry Bonds was difficult, and he was controversial ... but he was also better at hitting baseballs than almost anyone who ever lived. An MLB team could not ask for better production from a hitter, and yet none of Bonds’ teams -- including some very good ones -- ever won a World Series. So why not? What happened? You may be inclined to give simple answers to those questions, but we’re here to dig deeper into the actual deciding factors that kept Bonds short of a ring. Sometimes he struggled in the postseason, sometimes his teammates did. Sometimes he came through in the clutch, sometimes he very notably didn’t. Sometimes bad luck, bad managerial decisions, and bad timing interfered. This episode of Untitled investigates each of those seasons Bonds approached glory -- including the year his Giants came just a few outs away -- and figures out precisely what went wrong.

'Sexual racism' is a major problem on queer dating apps like Grindr, and it may be causing depression in black men
FG Trade/Getty Images Sexual racism, or racialized sexual discrimination, on queer dating apps like Grindr and Scruff is a significant problem.   Researchers Ryan Wade and Gary Harper created a scale to measure the psychological impacts of sexual racism on young men of color.  The results found that black men who were objectified on these platforms experienced higher rates of depression and lower rates of self-worth.  Visit Insider's homepage for more.

Where are the Cowboys better than the Patriots?
The Cowboys will play the Patriots on the road in a pivotal Week 12 matchup. In this week’s mailbag, Geoff Schwartz compares the Cowboys and Patriots, ponders Philip Rivers’ future, and shares some optimism about the Chiefs. It’s time for the Week 12 mailbag as we head into a huge weekend of football. The Texans took control of the AFC South Thursday night in their close victory over the Colts. This weekend, we have matchups that can help determine playoff seeding, from the 49ers-Packers game to the Ravens-Rams Monday Night Football matchup. Lastly, we have the Patriots at home against the Cowboys. Before we start there, a quick reminder: You can always holler if you have a question for me on Twitter or Instagram. Be honest with me: The Cowboys don’t have a good chance of winning in Foxborough, do they? — @BillyW37 The Patriots are almost touchdown favorites for one reason only: Bill Belichick vs. Jason Garrett. Where else are the Patriots much better than the Cowboys? Maybe secondary. Otherwise, the Cowboys are better right now at QB (yes, really), RB, OL, TE, DL, LB, and special teams. But the huge mismatch is in coaching, and that’s why I think the Patriots will win this game and probably cover. Look at the Cowboys this season against quality opponents. They lost, 12-10, to the Saints, who played with a backup QB. They were down, 31-3, to the Packers at home before making the score more respectable at the end. They lost to the Vikings at home. The Cowboys have been slow starters and if you do that in New England, you will get blown out. Lastly, Tom Brady is grumpy about his offense. When that happens, I expect the Patriots to have a “get right” game against this Cowboys defense, who couldn’t stop a backup Lions quarterback last week. How much did the field in Mexico play a part in slowing down the Chiefs’ offense? —@Countryboi567 Not at all. I think the Chiefs’ offense is just in a funk right now. They’ve had injuries on the offensive line and finally got their entire unit back for the first time since Week 2 in Mexico. That unit should finally start jelling, which should help Kansas City run the ball more efficiently. The last two seasons, the Chiefs finished fourth and fifth in rushing efficiency, and this season they are 17th. They need to be better in this department to take pressure off Patrick Mahomes. Even before Mahomes was injured this season, he was just a tad off from last year, which is wild because he was on pace to set the single-season passing yards record. Mahomes didn’t look as comfortable in the pocket this year as he was last season. He was drifting and not setting his feet when he had the chance. Then, he started to get beat up, his line wasn’t playing well with backups, and his mechanics got worse. Now the Chiefs have a bye week and can reset their minds and bodies. Their schedule after the bye is fairly easy outside of visiting New England. They have three division games at home and will be on the way to winning the AFC West. Rumors have been saying Philip Rivers would love to go to Nashville, according Matt Miller. Do you think he would fit with the Titans? Or do Titans still go look for a QB in the draft? — @RyderCarey Philip Rivers didn’t even move this family to Los Angeles when his team moved 100 miles north. So how willingly would Rivers be to move to Nashville with the whole gang? Beyond the family stuff, Rivers is shot. The Titans do not need an aging quarterback who can’t move and struggles to throw. They need to build around a young player who can eject some life in the program. Do I think Rivers is done in Los Angeles? Yes. The Chargers need some new blood at that position heading into their new stadium. They need someone to call their own and to build around moving forward. Luckily, there are plenty of options in the draft. Can you explain the benefits of the clapping snap count as opposed to a vocal snap count? —@Johnny_Squish Supposedly, it’s easier to hear than a vocal cadence, but I think it’s stupid. Part of the reason we have a snap count is to give the offensive line the benefit of getting a head start on when the snap is coming. Even if you’re in silent mode, the center moves his head to give the tackles a heads up for when the ball is being snapped. With the clap cadence, all of that is lost.

An accused bank robber claims the police broke the law when they used Google location data to track him down. Privacy advocates agree.
Bill Pugliano/Stringer/Getty Images An accused bank robber's lawyer and privacy advocates say police overstepped when they requested the use of personal geographical data to track him down and make their arrest. The 24-year-old man allegedly robbed a bank at gunpoint in May and made off with nearly $200,000.  To solve the case, police requested the location data of everyone in a 150-meter radius of the bank within an hour of the robbery. Google complied.  As police narrowed down the suspect, they asked for more specific information, until they finally arrested their primary suspect.  Police used a relatively new and highly controversial tactic known as a "geofence warrant." In an interview with Insider, ACLU staff attorney Nathan Wessler worried these blanket geographic searches by police lack accountability and could violate the Fourth Amendment.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. When, if ever, should police be able to gather up Google location data to track down a criminal suspect? That's one of the questions being posed by the lawyers of an alleged Virginia bank robber, who claims local police overstepped their bounds and committed privacy violations when they requested data from Google on him and 18 others near the vicinity of the crime. Privacy advocates say the implications of this case reach far beyond the alleged burglar and could affect the rights of millions of Americans using Google products.  The robbery took place this May at a Call Federal Credit Union. Surveillance footage of the robbery obtained by CBS 6 shows the burglar, armed with a handgun, charging into the bank. The Department of Justice alleges that 24-old Okello Chatrie made off with more than $195,000 dollars.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Here's how to escape a flooding vehicleSee Also:Disney Plus doesn't have all your favorite movies and TV shows.
