Yesterday, FOX dropped the latest trailer for the new 24 spinoff, 24: Legacy.
And the teaser gives us everything we expected from the high-intensity show, including those iconic countdown beeps. More importantly, the clip introduced us to the show’s new hero: Eric Carter, played by Straight Outta Compton’s Corey Hawkins.
Hawkin’s character is a lone survivor of a special forces team who took out a foreign target for the US government. We don’t know much else right now about Eric Carter, but it’s pretty clear the dude is more than qualified.
Check it out:
Jack Bauer may be gone, but at least we have still have someone yelling, “I need more time!” The show premieres right after the 2017 Super Bowl. Discuss
The world's tallest church building is being threatened by age—well, that and urine.
Germany's Ulm Minster stands 531 feet tall in the city of Ulm. The original foundation stones were laid in 1377, according to CNN, but the base of the building has started to erode. Seems natural for such an old building, right? Actually, officials are saying it's because of the salt and acid found in urine.
People in the city, whether they be late-night partiers or homeless people, frequently come to the building and relieve themselves. Apparently so much so that it's threatening the building's foundation.
The head of maintenance for the building, told Südwest Presse, "I've been keeping an eye on it for half a year now and, once again, it's coated with urine and vomit. This is about preserving law and order."
Germany has doubled the fines to about $109 for anyone caught while peeing on the building—a crime called "wildpinkler."

Waterford Township, a community of approximately 73,000 people in Michigan, has passed a resolution to prevent more refugees from resettling into their local community.
The measure requests that the federal government doesn't resettle any refugees including those from Syria until the program has been reformed.
Detroit News notes that the vote may be pointless because the federal government has jurisdiction over refugee placement. But a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives would give communities the choice to opt out.
In effect, the move filed by the city's Board of Trustees is more symbolic than anything else.
Resident John Nagle called the move a “fear-based” resolution.
Another resident Scott Hancock condemned the township's action. "I’ve lived here my entire life. I’ve never been embarrassed to be a Waterford citizen until I saw this resolution," he said.
“That doesn’t really line up the greatest values of our nation as well as of our community. I’m not sure why we can’t have a resolution that can be both welcoming and secure at the same time for the safety of its people,” Nagle said.
The United States has accepted 745,000 refugees since September 11, 2001. Out of this resettlement, only two Iraqi men in Kentucky have been arrested on terrorist charges. Discuss
SIDS is a tragic reality for many American families, claiming the lives of about 3,500 babies each year in the United States.
The study shows that co-sleeping with parents sleeping in the same room, but not the same bed, as their infant, reduces the risk of SIDS by half. Ideally, infants should sleep in the same room as parents up to age 1, the organization writes.
"The whole phenomenon of SIDS implies that we don't know 100 percent what is responsible for the death, but we have theories," said Dr. Lori Feldman-Winter, member of the Task Force on SIDS and co-author of the report.
Winter also added that a baby within reach of their mother or in an environment that has an increase in stimulation may feel more comfort. This proximity also facilitates breastfeeding which in itself has also been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS by 50 percent. Discuss
