Peterson didn't want to be taken off the field on a cart, which is why he was helped through a club area, in front of fans and in view of TV viewers, after hurting his knee during Sunday night's game.Video technology is giving Minnesota inmates a glimpse of the outside world — and often a window into their former homes — from behind bars.
Video visitation is expected to be up and running on all JPay kiosks in the facilities by the end of October — just in time for inmates to see their children’s Halloween costumes or pumpkin-carving prowess.

The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis held its first-ever online cat video festival, a compilation of silly cat clips that have become an Internet phenomenon, attracting millions of viewers for some of the videos.

Paul's Lowertown district, has only 7,000 seats but a capacity of 13,000 when people are seated on the field, "just like they've done for concerts in the past" at the old Saints stadium, Joyce said.
The festival was free at the Walker, but there will be a "nominal" charge for this year's event.
Tickets were in 2013 when the event was held at the Minnesota State Fair grandstand. Since its launch in 2012, the festival has become a cat-fan phenomenon that's attracted attention from the BBC, Japanese television, Australian talk shows, Brazilian newspapers and such specialized venues as Cat Fancy and CHEEZburger.
Its Golden Kitty (people's choice) awards have helped turned ordinary pets into celebrities.
Will Braden, whose video about his laconic pal, Henri Le Chat Noir, won the first Golden Kitty, gave up his day job and now promotes Henri and his spinoff merchandise full-time.
Braden will curate a selection of videos from which the 2015 Golden Kitty will be picked through online voting starting in June.
