Skier’s etiquette has emerged as a sticking point in a highly publicized trial where Gwyneth Paltrow is accused of causing a 2016 ski collision. Nearly every witness who has testified so far has been questioned about the tenets of a ubiquitous but mostly unknown skier’s responsibility code. Both Paltrow and the man who is suing her have claimed they were downhill on the slope, claiming they had the right of way when the crash happened. The trial has made “uphill” synonymous with “guilty,” and shone a spotlight on the legal implications of the etiquette rules that govern the expensive snow sport.
The Army is working to quickly pull together some new recruiting ads to air during the NCAA’s Final Four basketball games this weekend, after being forced to yank commercials that featured actor Jonathan Majors in the wake of his arrest last Saturday. Army leaders had been excited to feature Majors in the ads, as a key part of their new campaign aimed at reviving the service’s struggling recruiting numbers — which fell far short of their enlistment goal last year. They believed the ads would capitalize on Majors’ popularity coming off his recently released “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” movies — hoping it would help them reach the youth audience.
