NFL owners approved the Oakland Raiders' move to Las Vegas at league meetings Monday despite a plea from the California city's mayor to delay the vote over a potential last-ditch stadium deal. The vote was a foregone conclusion after the league and Raiders were not satisfied with Oakland's proposals for a new stadium, and Las Vegas stepped up with $750 million in public money. Bank of America also is giving Raiders owner Mark Davis a $650 million loan, further helping convince the owners to allow the third team relocation in just over a year. The Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles in 2016, and in January the Chargers relocated from San Diego to LA. The Raiders likely will play two or three more years in the Bay Area before their $1.7 billion stadium near the Las Vegas strip is ready, Fox 2 reported.

Adele said she may be done touring during a rainy New Zealand show.

"I don't know if I will ever tour again," she said, according to News.com.au. "The only reason I've toured is you. I'm not sure if touring is my bag. My greatest accomplishment in my career is this tour."

Rumors have swirled that this will be Adele's final tour since back in September.

"Touring isn't something I'm good at -- applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable," she told the crowd at her Sunday show in Auckland.

Adele wraps her months-long tour in London on July 2.

You had your potato chips. You had your corn chips. If you had a dip made from sour cream and onion, you went potato. Salsa, beans or guac? Corn. Simple.

Then came Pringles, Bugles, and Doritos, completely confusing the whole concept of what a chip was. Instead of potatoes or corn fried in oil and sprinkled with salt, these creatures were made from weird ingredients, and shaped in weird ways, and they tasted like...well, not food exactly. Something different.

And it only got more complicated from there. Now the world of chips is like World of Warcraft, with more characters and subplots than your mind can comprehend. You've got your Sun Chips, your pita chips, your Cheetos. You've got chips made out of beans, lentils, kale, quinoa, even crickets. Some of them even have the temerity to claim to be health food that can help you lose weight.

Mashable: You need only to Google "pineapple pizza" to know the internet loves itself a good (if not: dumb, hilarious) food fight. The latest debate tearing friends, families, and lovers apart? Pulp vs. no pulp. Our personal opinion? Pulp's delicious. It's juice, and then some. But we're just the documentarian, not the dictator. On Twitter, pulp advocates shamed no-pulp devotees for liking orange juice they feel is artificial and designed for children. Meanwhile, pulp-haters decried pulp as "bitter." Some acknowledged, though, that orange juice without pulp is less "orange juice" and more "orange-flavored juice."

Corrections officials adopted new criminal sentencing rules on Friday that aim to trim California's prison population by 9,500 inmates after four years. They include steps like reducing inmates' sentences up to six months for earning a college degree and by up to a month each year for participating in self-help programs such as alcohol and substance abuse support groups and counseling, anger management, life skills, victim awareness, restorative justice, and parenting classes. Virtually any inmate except those on death row or those serving life-without-parole sentences are eligible to earn the credits and lower their sentences.
