For one of the photo shoots, he had to stand in the background while Formula One stars such as Max Ferstappen and Lewis Hamilton appeared on the catwalk. As always, Shaq was above all others.


Sports Illustrated published photos of Shaquille and signed them - Shaq is a BIG dude.

Shaquille was almost twice as tall as Ferstappen and Hamilton, who stood on a pedestal.

President deemed church services essential, pastors still cautious

The writer apologized to a man who spent 16 years in prison for her rape

Alice Seabold apologized for the illegal conviction of a man who was found not guilty of raping her in 1981.


In her first book, Lucky, Seabord described being raped. Anthony Broadwater was convicted of the crime. He spent 16 years in prison and was on the sex offender registry for more than 20 years.


Seabold also wrote the novel The Lovely Bones, which Peter Jackson turned into an Oscar-nominated film.


"I am most sorry that the life you could have been unjustly stolen from you, and I know that no apology can change what has happened to you," Seabold said in a statement.

A statement released by Broadwater's lawyers said he was "relieved that she apologized."

Seabold's first autobiographical novel sold more than a million copies, which marked the beginning of her writing career.

In it, she described in detail how an 18-year-old student at Syracuse University in New York was raped.
