To keep Chiefs fans safe during the coronavirus pandemic, Arrowhead Stadium has been divided into different zones that groups of fans will have to stay within.

Aaron Coleman's electoral success highlights the dangers of a "boys will be boys" mentality, the Kansas City Chiefs kick off their season tonight in a home opener unlike any other, and the Labor Day box office numbers are in from cinemas around the country.

Segment 1, beginning at 3:56: A 19-year-old Democratic nominee for the Kansas House admits he harassed girls when he was 14.

Aaron Coleman's story has made national headlines, and the conversation surrounding his actions has shifted to examine of the culture and behavior of young men. Coleman has said he's ready to move on, but some victims of his abuse struggle to do just that.

Segment 2, beginning at 28:20: Arrowhead Stadium will be limited to 22% of its capacity.

For now, only 16,000 fans will be allowed in Arrowhead Stadium, which normally seats more than 75,000. Will the diminished crowd and noise have an impact on the game? In a notoriously loud stadium, the away team may not face the same disruption they have in previous seasons.

Segment 3, beginning at 41:36 : Streaming services are dominating the film industry during the pandemic, as many stay hesitant to return to theaters.

With the limited release of "Tenet" and the digital-only release of "Mulan," recent large productions, which traditionally rely on opening weekend revenue, are making studios rethink how they release movies. Meanwhile, streaming services continue to offer a wider selection for those not ready to go back to the cinema.
