Best supporting actress Oscar 1977 - who is YOUR choice for most deserving?

I don't even know the name Beatrice Straight - maybe she's a gay icon - God I doubt it & what about that name? There's a very wordy scene from Network, after her long acceptance speech, to remind you of her performance as the jilted wife and the incredibly wordy dialogue. Everyone seemed to highly rate Network back in its day. Maybe that's why she won this. How she could have won over Lee Grant after her performance in Voyage Of The Damned, I cannot get my head around.

Of course there are/ other nominees for you to consider.

This should make for a very interesting conversation.

Pregnant Person? Pregnant People?

With all this talk about abortion lately, I keep hearing from "experts" on the matter saying things like, "We have to protect the rights of the pregnant person."

These spokespeople seem to avoid saying "pregnant woman."

I guess this probably has something to do with trans pregnancy bullshit. So now we have to say "pregnant person?" I am not going to dignify that by going along with it.

Utterly fucking ridiculous.

Keeping Up With the Laverys The Brooklyn literary power throuple all working and baby-raising from home.

April 10, 2024

[quote]It’s a Monday morning in March, and Danny Lavery is up first to quietly bake the bread he proofed the night before and to walk the two little dogs Maxim Casaubon Lavery (goes by Bon Bon) and Huckleberry Rigaud Lavery (prefers Gogo). […] Lily has a number of projects to attend to, but at the forefront is gestating the household’s baby. Waiting for a baby here mostly entails talking. “When I say we hope that the baby will be gay, I think maybe we’re all saying that we hope the baby will have an aesthetic life,” says Lily later as we curl up on the couch in their Brownstone Brooklyn living room. “I don’t know if you guys agree with that or not.” “I’m just picturing a little Bob Newhart baby,” Danny says. “Oh!” Grace says, then realizes, relieved. “I was thinking of Bob Ross.”

[…]

[quote]Danny met Grace, an academic, in 2015 […] In 2019, he turned 33, married Grace, took her last name, and broke contact with his family, publicly holding his pastor father to account for choices you’d never want your pastor to make. As now perhaps the most famous trans couple of a certain slice of literary America, they decamped abruptly from California to New York.

[…]

[quote]A year after the Lavery wedding, Grace met Lily online. Lily was teaching art history at Michigan State and — by her account — “reading Killing Eve fan fiction and masturbating.” They fell for each other. Eventually, Lily came to visit Grace in the city […] Two things led to another, or one thing led to two others. “I didn’t want to read more fan fiction,” Lily says. “I wanted my life to resemble fan fiction.” […] Eventually, Lily moved in. […] yes, they all sleep in the same bed. It also doesn’t seem particularly large.

[...]

[quote]They planned to name this baby Rochbert “Rocco” Ozymandias Wolverine, though they wanted to get a peek at him first to be sure.

[…]

[quote]Because Grace and Lily were intimate first, and because they’re all living and working together in a floor-through, one-bathroom apartment, Lily and Danny were a bit on tiptoes together, even into the pregnancy. Then they had their first good fight in December — over recycling! “There were ways in which I still felt like you and I would sometimes be on our ‘company manners’ around each other,” Danny says. “I think the outcome has been really positive,” Lily says. “I’m really sorry we had to go through my being a dick,” Danny says. This is their method. Danny describes it as “lesbian dominant” with an asterisk: “I don’t mean that in the sense of we’re dominant lesbians. I just mean we all have enough of a background in lesbianism and the processing of the lesbian school, which not all lesbians do, or have to do, or should do, but which does exist. I think we all like it. There will absolutely, I’m sure, come a day when our son is like, ‘I went over to someone else’s house and they don’t fucking do this all day. I didn’t know you could live with such beautiful quiet.’ Maybe that will be one of the ways in which heterosexuality will reintroduce itself back to our home.”

Surely this has been posted already, but I did a search and came up empty

Jewel Will Still Save Your Soul

At age 15, Jewel moved out of her turbulent home in rural Alaska and hitchhiked several hundred miles to attend a powwow. Sitting in a large circle, she froze when a talking stick was passed to her. Later, she was taken aside by two “uncles,” who told her the future of her life would depend upon learning to speak from her heart. It was there that she also heard the story of the raven, which she recites to me from memory.

There was a gathering every full moon of all the creatures of every kind,” she says. “One day, the two-leggeds [humans] didn’t show up, so Great Spirit sent out the raven, which was then a beautiful white bird, to look for them. The raven flew for days and found the two-leggeds wandering lost on the edges of the wilderness. The raven called to them, but they could no longer understand the language, and the raven turned black with grief. The raven flew back to the fire and said, ‘The two-leggeds have lost the language of knowing how to speak to all of us, to nature.’ ”

Today, in a nondescript cinder block building behind a Food 4 Less shopping center in the Van Nuys section of Los Angeles, a raven named Shadow is biting Jewel’s index finger. She gracefully extends her hand so as not to drip blood onto the ivory folds of a borrowed gown, grimacing ever so slightly as a turntable spins her like a life-size music box dancer.

“Cut!” yells creative director Matthew Rolston, one of the multiplatinum recording artist’s longtime collaborators, whom she’s called upon to help her shoot a hologram of herself for The Portal: An Art Experience by Jewel, opening on May 4 at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Arkansas.

If all goes as planned, a hologram of Jewel with Shadow perched on her hand will greet visitors at the start of the 90-minute immersive experience. Its centerpiece is a reflective art walk through the museum’s contemporary wing, narrated by Jewel, featuring 10 pieces she’s selected from the museum’s collection that represent what she calls the “three spheres” of existence (more on that later), as well as two of her own artworks: a stunning portrait of her 12-year-old son, Kase, that she made after taking a two-week oil painting clinic last spring in Rome, and a sculpture. There’s also a nightly outdoor choreographed 200-piece drone light show, during which visitors will be invited to wear headphones to listen to a conceptual song written and recorded by Jewel.

Lauren Sanchez's risque White House state dinner dress is slammed as 'tacky' and 'disrespectful'

Did Lauren Sánchez Break White House Protocol in $2,300 Skin-Baring Gown at State Dinner as 54-year-old sparks furious fashion debate with the lacy corset design? Lauren Sánchez chose a gown that bucked tradition for White House state dinners.

The 54-year-old journalist and philanthropist stepped out with fiancé Jeff Bezos, 60, for a state dinner honoring Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and his wife, Yuko. For the affair on Wednesday, April 10, Sánchez wore a revealing red corset gown that stood out among the conservatively dressed crowd. (The White House did not respond to a request for comment on dress codes but typical state dinner dress code is black tie.)

Gay people are a good reason to allow first cousins to marry ?

Tennessee lawmakers passed legislation yesterday that prohibits biological first cousins from marrying. However, the law met with resistance from some in the state house.

Republican Rep. Gino Bulso objected as lawmakers discussed the law. One set of Bulso’s own grandparents were first cousins. Because of this, Bulso previously said that if the proposed law existed in olden days, “I would not be here.” It’s known that if biological family members procreate together, there is an increased risk of genetic defects in the resulting offspring.

Bulso went on to suggest that banning first cousins from marrying might go against the US Supreme Court case on Obergefell. He suggested that as two same-sex cousins couldn’t biologically have a child, it was discriminatory to ban them from marrying.

“Unless anyone in this body can articulate a compelling interest to deny a male first cousin from marrying a male first cousin, this bill demonstrably violates Obergefell and we should vote it down,” Bulso said.

Epic First ‘Gladiator 2’ Footage Leaves CinemaCon Very Entertained

Gladiator 2 swept into the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, where theater owners were given the first look at footage from Ridley Scott‘s epic.

Scott sent in a video from London to introduce the piece. “It is possibly even more extraordinary than the first,” said Scott of the upcoming film, a sequel to 2000’s Gladiator. Star Paul Mescal called working on it a “standout moment” in his life to date. Denzel Washington said the film will have “emotion” and “spectacle ” beyond anything else in theaters this year.

In the footage, Mescal is revealed to be a gladiator (apparently, he is not playing the nephew of Joaquin Phoenix’s Emperor Commodus, as had been reported). His character is seen fighting murderous monkeys, as well as a soldier on a rhinoceros. At one point, the Colosseum is filled with water for an epic ship battle.

The first Gladiator won Russell Crowe a best actor Oscar, and told the story of a Roman general sold into slavery and forced to fight as a gladiator, all while turning his growing popularity with the people against the murderous Commodus.

It seems that Mescal’s character is inspired by Crowe’s Maximus. “I remember that day. I never forgot it. That a slave could take revenge against an emperor. That a slave could get justice in the arena,” he says at one point in the trailer, referencing the climax of the first film.

The project dives into anti-war politics, with Pedro Pascal playing a military figure who no longer wants to throw away Rome’s young men on war. As a result, he too is then condemned to fight as a gladiator. Washington, meanwhile, seems to be guiding Mescal to inspire revolution.

“The only truth in Rome is the law of the strongest,” says Washington’s character.

Going into CinemaCon, Gladiator 2 was among the most anticipated movies, given its pedigree as the sequel to Scott’s 2000 best picture winner, and given reports of a large budget that would suggest plenty of spectacle onscreen for the Nov. 22 release.

Gladiator 2 is a risky proposition for Paramount and for Scott, who takes big swings with his movies that sometimes generate hits and classic films, and sometimes don’t. His 2023 Apple epic Napoleon grossed $221 million globally, which would be a concerning number for a legacy studio, though the tech giant was not counting on it as a theatrical play. For its part, Paramount is high on Scott and has enlisted him to direct an upcoming Bee Gees biopic.

In his video remarks introducing the footage, Scott noted it’d been more than 20 years since the first film hit theaters. Said the legendary filmmaker: “Well worth the wait.”

Vacation horror as ‘drunk’ son, 20, jumps from Royal Caribbean cruise in front of family

A cruise turned into a nightmare for people aboard Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas when a young man jumped overboard shortly after 4 a.m. Thursday.

The 18-story ship was sailing between Cuba and the Bahamas’ Grand Inagua Island when the as-yet-unidentified man jumped off one of the decks.

According to onlookers, his father and brother watched helplessly as he leaped over the side.

Some passengers said it appeared to be an impulsive, spur-of-the-moment decision.

“I had hung out with him and his brother in the hot tub until 3:30,” passenger Bryan Sims tells The Post. ” It was standing room only. He sat right beside me the whole time.”

“He was pretty drunk,” Sims continues.

“As we were walking from the hot tub back to the elevators, his dad and brother were walking towards us. His dad was fussing at him for being drunk, I guess.”

“When we got to them, he said to his dad, ‘I’ll fix this right now.’ And he jumped out the window in front of us all.”

“There was a lot of yelling, and the crew was alerted immediately,” another passenger, Deborah Morrison, told The Post.

“His family was horrified. Just beside themselves. I can’t even begin to imagine what they’re going through.”

“It was insane,” says Sims. “It was just surreal.”

In a statement to The Post, Royal Caribbean said its crew immediately sprang into action following the incident.

“The ship’s crew immediately launched a search and rescue effort alongside the US Coast Guard, who has taken over the search,” the statement reads.

“Our Care Team is providing support and assistance to the guest’s family during this difficult time. For the privacy of the guest and their family, we have no additional details to share.”

News of the apparent suicide attempt quickly spread among the guests — and many of them tried to help in any way they could.

“The early morning was definitely somber as so many people came out of their cabins to stare at the sea, hoping to be able to aid in finding the person,” said Amy Phelps Fouse, a passenger on the ship.

“Royal Caribbean has been excellent at communicating updates throughout the day,” Fouse continued. “They have asked that people act with compassion in light of the tragic situation.”

Overboard incidents on cruise ships are rare.

According to the Washington Post, about 386 people were reported to have gone overboard on the major cruise lines between 2000 to 2020.

The incidents, whether accidental or intentional, are often deadly.

In the past few years, most cruise lines have enacted onboard safety measures and surveillance systems to help reduce the risk of overboard deaths.

The Coast Guard confirmed to The Post it is still conducting a search and rescue operation in the waters off Cuba. The man has not yet been found.

‘Golden Bachelor’ couple Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist split three months after wedding

The sun has set on “The Golden Bachelor’s” Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist’s marriage.

Just three months after marrying in a live televised ceremony, the two announced their plans to divorce on “Good Morning America” Friday.

“Theresa and I have had a number of heart-to-heart conversations,” Turner said, "We’ve looked closely at our situation, our living situation, so forth and we’ve come to the conclusion mutually that it’s probably time for us to dissolve our marriage.”

Fallout - Amazon Prime's new big budget video game adaptation, trailer released today. Can it succeed like "The Last Of Us"?

The original Fallout games which came out in the late 90s had excellent storytelling, but the modern entries have left much to be desired. That being said, the setting and world itself has always been compelling in the games. The universe of Fallout is an alternate timeline of Earth's history. It's a retrofuturist world with a 1950s sci-fi aesthetic. i asked chat gpt to summarize the setting to make it easier.

'In the Fallout universe, an alternate history unfolds where the world diverged from ours after World War II, adopting a retrofuturistic aesthetic centered around atomic technology. The United States and China become embroiled in a resource war, escalating into a devastating conflict. The Great War of 2077 culminates in a nuclear apocalypse, transforming the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Vault-Tec, a pre-war corporation, constructs underground vaults to shelter select citizens from the devastation.'

vault-tec is a company that built nuclear survival shelters all across the usa, but most of them are actually designed to be cruel social experiments with human guinea pigs. Most of the games have you leaving a vault to explore and interact with the outside post-apocalyptic world - with humans trying to rebuild society amongst mutants and monsters created by radiation. The games are highly acclaimed and Fallout is considered to be one of the greatest franchises in gaming history. fallout 1, 2, and new vegas are particularly known for good writing.

‘Gladiator 2’ Debuts Epic Trailer at CinemaCon

Paramount Pictures unveiled the first trailer from “Gladiator II” on the stage of The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, a Las Vegas hotel that reimagines Ancient Rome in all its decadent splendor, albeit with a few more slot machines. Director Ridley Scott seems to be offering a bloodier version of that distant age, one that finds Paul Mescal entering the arena as a nobleman who has renounced his privilege and finds himself in a life-and-death struggle for the amusement of the Roman people.

Based on the footage that Scott brought to Sin City to share with cinema owners, “Gladiator 2” recaptures the first film’s epic sprawl and shattering action sequences. The teaser saw Mescal face off against a charging rhino, a horde of vicious baboons, and Pedro Pascal, among other threats to his chiseled physique. There were also naval bombardments, political intrigue aplenty — and a pair of diabolical emperors who seem even crazier than Joaquin Phoenix’s unhinged monarch from the first film.

CNN Commentator Remarks on OJ Simpson Spark Controversy

Ashley Allison, a CNN contributor, sparked outrage on Thursday after saying that OJ Simpson “represented something for the black community … particularly because there were two white people who had been killed.”

"But it was so racially charged because of what had happened just before with Rodney King, but also just how black Americans feel about policing."

“He wasn't a social justice leader, but he represented something for the black community in that moment, in that trial, particularly because there were two white people who had been killed. And the history around how black people have been persecuted during slavery."

"Until this country is ready to actually have an honest conversation about the racial dynamics from our origin story until today, we will always have moments like O.J. Simpson that manifests and our country will always be divided if we don't actually deal with the issue of race."

*Ashley Allison is an Obama-Biden Administration and Biden-Harris campaign senior staffer with more than 15 years of experience building campaigns and strategies that lead to victory. As the National Coalitions Director for Biden-Harris 2020 presidential campaign

U.S. issues travel warning for Israel with Iran attack believed to be imminent

Tel Aviv — Israel is bracing for a worst-case scenario that U.S. officials believe could materialize within just hours — the possibility of a direct attack on Israeli soil by Iran in retaliation for a strike almost two weeks ago that killed seven Iranian military officers. Iran has vowed to take revenge for Israel killing its commanders, who were hit by an April 1 strike on the Iranian embassy in Syria's capital.

Two U.S. officials told CBS News that a major Iranian attack against Israel was expected as soon as Friday, possibly to include more than 100 drones and dozens of missiles aimed at military targets inside the country. Sources have told CBS News the retaliation could include attacks carried out both by Iranian forces, and proxy groups around the region that it has been funnelling additional arms to for weeks.

The officials said it would be challenging for the Israelis to defend against an attack of such a magnitude, and while they held out the possibility that the Iranians could opt for a smaller-scale attack to avoid a dramatic escalation, their retaliation was believed to be imminent.

The US military has moved its forces in the Middle East to prepare for an Iranian attack on Israel that could come as early as today.

John Kirby, the White House National security adviser, said “force posture changes” had been made to ensure the US is “properly prepared” for any Iranian assault.

He refused to give further details on the specifics of the deployment. The USS Eisenhower aircraft carrier is currently stationed in the Red Sea, along with further Navy assets in the Mediterranean.

Vietnam sentences billionaire real estate tycoon Truong My Lan to death

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — Real estate tycoon Truong My Lan was sentenced Thursday to death by a court in Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam in the country's largest financial fraud case ever, state media Vietnam Net said.

The 67-year-old chair of the real estate company Van Thinh Phat was formally charged with fraud amounting to $12.5 billion — nearly 3% of the country’s 2022 GDP.

Lan illegally controlled Saigon Joint Stock Commercial Bank between 2012 and 2022 and allowed 2,500 loans that resulted in losses of $27 billion to the bank, reported state media VnExpress. The court asked her to compensate the bank $26.9 million.

Despite mitigating circumstances — this was a first-time offense and Lan participated in charity activities — the court attributed its harsh sentence to the seriousness of the case, saying Lan was at the helm of an orchestrated and sophisticated criminal enterprise that had serious consequences with no possibility of the money being recovered, VnExpress said.

Washington Post: Democratic youth registration projects backfiring as too many choose republican

A confidential memo circulated among top Democratic donors has sparked a furious debate in Democratic circles about whether to narrow the focus of voter registration efforts to avoid signing up likely Republicans.

For decades, nonpartisan groups allied with the Democratic Party have run wide-ranging efforts aimed at increasing voter registration among people of color and young people — groups that tend to lean Democratic but have historically voted at lower rates than older and White people.

In recent years, however, there has been a marked shift among the roughly 1 in 5 citizens of voting age who are unregistered toward Republicans, raising fresh questions about how much boosting nonpartisan voter registration could help presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump heading into November.

Aaron Strauss, an influential data scientist who helps direct progressive spending at the firm OpenLabs, sparked private disagreements over this issue in January, when he sent about a dozen major Democratic donors a confidential memo that challenged traditional nonpartisan registration.

“Indeed, if we were to blindly register nonvoters and get them on the rolls, we would be distinctly aiding Trump’s quest for a personal dictatorship,” Strauss argued in the memo, which was obtained by The Washington Post and cited recent polling that showed Trump’s strength among unregistered voters.

He also warned that efforts to gain Democratic votes among younger and non-Black people of color were often expensive — costing more than $1,200 per net vote in 2020, by one estimate — because the groups now include so many non-Democrats. Among voters of color, he wrote that “only African American registration is clearly a prime opportunity,” adding that netting Democratic voters among Black people cost approximately $575 per vote in 2020.

He called on donors to nonpartisan nonprofits to also donate to political groups that focus voter registration spending on “specific, heavily pro-Biden populations” like Black Americans, while using more targeted techniques among other groups to filter out likely Trump supporters.

-------------------

So I guess no more MTV videos of Madonna telling kids to register, or she will spank them.

"An" OnlyFans Star Peachy Boy and 10 Examples of Why We Love the Fruits of his Labor

When someone decides to become a social media influencer, they should first consider who they are trying to influence.

Clad in green leggings and holding a measuring tape, the shapely model gets a bit cheeky in his efforts.

“Challengers” official reviews are starting to come out and things looks GREAT!

“ Another filmmaker might have subtracted himself in order to foreground the story, whereas Guadagnino goes big, leading with style (and a trendy score from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross). In keeping with the athletic theme, he does all kinds of wild things with the camera, including a composition framed from the umpire’s perspective mid-court that zooms along the net to find Tashi in the crowd. Occasionally, she and other characters smack the fluorescent yellow balls directly at the screen, making us flinch in our seats. By the end, “Challengers” has assumed the ball’s POV — or maybe it’s the racket’s — as Guadagnino immerses audiences in the film’s climactic match.

Far from your typical sports movie, “Challengers” is less concerned with the final score than with the ever-shifting dynamic between the players. The pressure mounts and the perspiration pours, as the pair once known as “Fire and Ice” face off again. Whether audiences identify as Team Patrick or Team Art, Guadagnino pulls a risky yet effective trick, essentially scoring the winning shot himself.”

As per the previous thread, I am still listening to Moby Dick, but not during chemotherapy, there are too many interruptions and I am enjoying the story far too much for stopping and starting. So it’s on my commute.

I wanted a big, easy to read saga to read over the holidays so I am rereading Gone With The Wind for the first time since childhood.

Congress must let Ukraine win, say Barbra Streisand, Sean Penn, Imagine Dragons, Timothy Snyder and other luminaries

Together we call upon Congress to do the right thing.

Ukrainians are fighting for their existence. On territory that Russia occupies, it tortures Ukrainian citizens, kidnaps Ukrainian children and murders Ukrainian leaders. On territory Russia can reach with its weapons, it strikes civilians and rescue workers. Russian missiles, drones and bombs destroy churches and monuments to the Holocaust. Russian occupation threatens Ukraine’s Muslims, the Crimean Tatars.

Russian leaders say openly that their goal is the destruction of the Ukrainian state and the elimination of Ukrainians as a people. Russian propagandists threaten genocide almost every day. Right now, Russia is using missiles and glide bombs to destroy the ancient and beautiful city of Kharkiv, once home to 1.5 million people, just as Russia destroyed Mariupol, Aleppo and Grozny.

Wisconsin Boy, 13, Who Disappeared 1 Month Ago May Be Attempting to Live ‘Off the Grid’: Police

Police in Wisconsin say a teenage boy may be living in the wilderness as a survivalist after disappearing from his family’s home last month.

James Yoblonski, 13, was reported missing on the morning of June 12, according to Sauk County Sheriff Chip Meister.

Family and authorities believe James may be living “off the grid,”said Sauk County Lieutenant Steven Schram, according to The Wisconsin State Journal.

The teen’s father told police that his son “had taken a family vehicle,” which was found by a deputy about an hour after the report was made, the sheriff said. James may also have taken a firearm with him, per the Journal’s report.

"He's a smart kid," James' father Bill Yoblonski told ABC affiliate WKOW. "This is uncalled for, to do something like this and not to talk to anybody about it."

Much of the search has been focused on the area west of Devil's Lake State Park near U.S. Highway 12, according to the Journal.

Crews began searching an area near U.S. Highway 12 and the Sauk Hill after authorities pinged James’ cell phone, Meister said. But the teen still has yet to be found.

During the search, deputies found “property belonging to James” at what the sheriff described as “a makeshift campsite.” Crews have located at least two different campsites that may have been set up by James, according to WKOW.

Authorities believe James “is acting with intention,” Schram said, per the Journal. They also believe James had “two woodland survival manuals” in his possession when he disappeared.

James' father told WKOW that he also bought his son “some off-grid books,” one of which he seemingly took when he disappeared from his Reedsburg home.

"I hope he knows that we love him and we just want him home and safe," he added. "He's not in trouble, I just want him home."

Authorities are exploring “all avenues” as the search continues for James, according to a second statement from Meister, released July 7.

Anyone with information about James’ whereabouts is asked to contact the Sauk County Sheriff's Office at (608) 356-4895.

Vanity Fair writer booted from NYC murder-for-hire jury for tweeting about ‘hot FBI agent’

A Vanity Fair writer was tossed from a federal jury in a Brooklyn murder-for-hire trial because she tweeted about the “hot FBI agent” on the case, the Daily News has learned.

The juror, Delia Cai, professed her feelings in a now-deleted pair of posts on X earlier this week, then joked about getting spiked from the jury in posts on Tuesday.

She posted her two offending tweets on Monday, according to court sources, first writing, “didn’t get to see the eclipse bc I’m on federal jury duty but I did get to look at a hot fbi agent” and following up with “we’re literally not allowed to talk to each other outside the courtroom … if I say hi he legally has to ignore me… don’t they know this is how I fall in love.”

Cai covers celebrities and culture as a senior Vanities correspondent at Vanity Fair, recently writing profiles of Jada Pinkett Smith, “Past Lives” and “The Morning Show” actress Greta Lee, and Washington Post columnist Taylor Lorenz. She’s also the author of the 2023 book “Central Places.”

Judge Carol Bagley Amon admonished Cai and booted her from the case on Tuesday, after officials spotted her saucy social media musings, courtroom sources said.

She apologized to the judge, saying that she didn’t realize her posts — which didn’t mention any specifics about the case — violated the court’s orders, one courtroom source said.

Shortly after, she posted on X, “anyway so i got kicked out of jury duty for posting about it …. learn from this what you will….,” then followed up with, “judge said girl go to horny jail :/”

Cai told The News that even though she took it in stride online and continued to joke about it, “I’m obviously horrified. I’m so sorry. I was just making a joke.”

“That’s just like the mode I am with life in general. I’ll tweet about getting dumped,” she added. “I did not understand the stakes. I did not take the gravity of the situation into account.”

Angelina Jolie alleges ‘history’ of Brad Pitt’s physical abuse prior to 2016 plane ride

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s fight over the French winery they once owned together is coming to a head and reigniting older conflicts, as new legal documents allege a “history of physical abuse of Jolie” on the part of Pitt prior to their fateful plane ride in 2016.

On Thursday, Jolie filed a motion with the Los Angeles Superior Court, a copy of which CNN has obtained, wherein she claims that she attempted to sell Pitt her stake in the Miraval winery and that their negotiations ultimately broke down after Pitt conditioned the sale on Jolie signing an NDA that “prohibited Jolie from speaking (other than in court) about Pitt’s abuse of Jolie and their children by attempting to tie Pitt’s personal reputation to Miraval’s business.”

This week’s new filing stems from Pitt’s 2022 lawsuit, in which he claimed that he and Jolie had an agreement that neither would sell their stake in the winery without the other’s consent. In a June 2023 filing, he alleged that Jolie’s sale of her stake in the winery was “vindictive” after an “adverse custody ruling.”

Jolie also claims in Thursday’s filing that Pitt’s “history of physical abuse of Jolie started well before the family’s September 2016 plane trip from France to Los Angeles,” but does not go into further detail about the alleged prior abuse.

“At trial, Jolie will prove through testimony, emails, photographs, and other evidence why Pitt was so concerned about his own misconduct that he blew up his own deal to purchase Jolie’s interest in Miraval because she refused to agree to his new, expansive NDA,” the filing reads.

Jolie claims in the filing on Thursday that she agreed to sign an NDA that was “limited to not disparaging Miraval’s wine business” as part of her initial deal to sell Pitt her stake in the winery, which they were close to finalizing at the time.

Pitt had previously claimed in his June 2023 amended complaint that after Jolie would not agree to sign his NDA, she proposed an even broader NDA that “would have provided that “[o]ther than in court pleadings or testimony, neither party shall directly or through a party’s representatives make in a public forum any derogatory remark about the other party.”

“Mr. Pitt refused to purchase Ms. Jolie’s interest when she would not be silenced by his NDA. By refusing to buy her interest but then suing her, Mr. Pitt put directly at issue why that NDA was so important to him and what he hoped it would bury: his abuse of Ms. Jolie and their family,” Paul Murphy, Jolie’s attorney, told CNN in a statement on Thursday. “After eight months of delays, this motion asks the Court to force Mr. Pitt to finally produce that evidence.”

Jolie never ended up pressing charges against Pitt in relation to the 2016 altercation, according to the filing, because she believed “the best course was for Pitt to accept responsibility and help the family recover from the post-traumatic stress he caused.”

CNN previously reported that Pitt was not arrested or charged in connection with the 2016 incident after the FBI completed its investigation, and a representative for Pitt disputed Jolie’s account of that incident included in an October 2022 filing. Pitt’s representative said in a statement to CNN at the time that “Brad has accepted responsibility for what he did but will not for things he didn’t do.”

In October 2021, Jolie sold her half of the winery to Tenute del Mondo, a subsidiary of Stoli Group, controlled by Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler.

The ongoing legal proceedings and “Pitt’s unyielding attempts to control and punish Jolie continue to take a huge emotional and financial toll on her and their family,” the filing reads. “Jolie longs for their family to be able to heal and their children to be spared further pain and trauma, and truly wishes Pitt would want the same too.”

Legal proceedings as they pertain to the Miraval dispute also remain ongoing. The former couple purchased the country estate and winery in the south of France in 2008.

She never wanted to be an actress, but at Illinois State University she joined a tight-knit group consisting of John Malkovich, Glenn Headley, Joan Allen, and Terry Kinney, who persuaded her to study acting and join the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago.

From Chicago to New York, she was cast in Saturday Night Live, although she appeared in only one episode. However, she was noticed and cast as the younger and neurotic sister of Roseanne Barr in the NBC hit Roseanne, where she won three consecutive Emmys. She also showcased her range on the big screen appearing in films such as Uncle Buck, Internal Affairs, JFK, Dear God, Scream 2, Bulworth, Lady Bird, and the Toy Story series. We have not even begun to discuss her theater work.

"I was too practical to major in theater," she says, "acting - what was I going to do with acting? There was no future in it...."

I've seen Citizen Kane, Lady from Shanghai, Mr. Arkaddin, A Touch of Evil and Othello. This one is the best of the lot in my opinion (although Citizen Kane is "greater"). I didn't think there was a single miscast in the movie. I just wish Marlene Dietrich was in more scenes (I don't think she's ever looked better), she had the best dialogue. Thoughts?

Brianna Ghey murder trial starts in UK

Brianna was the 15 year old male born trans girl stabbed to death in February this year that saw a wave of vigils in the UK. A male and female teenager aged 15 were charged with the murder

The UK has very strict contempt of court laws so the information presented to the jury is the first time it has been made public.

As was suspected at the time Brianna wasn't killed simply because she was trans. The 2 perps have been diagnosed with autism and had an unnatural obsession with torture and murder and the girl attempted to kill Brianna by giving her an overdose, which she recovered from.

The perps then planned to kill a boy by strangling him and stage it as him hanging himself, but they couldn't afford the rope. The girl perp had told the boy perp that she really liked Brianna and she became the next target.

Parts of the court testimony made me think of Heathers.

Teen Jock kills himself after being catfished and extorted for money by Nigerians

Seventeen-year-old Jordan DeMay was a homecoming king, a star athlete and a beloved role model at Marquette Senior High School in Michigan. He was also the victim of what investigators say was an “international sextortion ring” that pushed him to take his life last March.

Disturbing Instagram messages between the teen and an alleged Nigerian scammer, who posed as a teenage girl to extort him, were revealed Wednesday by U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Michigan Mark Totten after a monthslong investigation that led to the indictment of three men.

Samuel Ogoshi, 22, Samson Ogoshi, 20, and Ezekiel Ejehem Robert, 19, all of Lagos, Nigeria, were charged in a four-count indictment for the “sextortion” of DeMay.

According to the indictment, DeMay was sexually extorted on Instagram by the three scammers, who allegedly encouraged DeMay to send explicit photos of himself that were later used to blackmail him for money.

It’s an increasingly common tactic in a crime that is on the rise. Perpetrators often pretend to be someone else, encouraging victims to send sexual messages or photos that are then used to blackmail them, Totten said.

In this case, the scammers allegedly purchased a hacked Instagram account under the handle “dani.robertts” and posed as a teenage girl who chatted to DeMay via DM. At some point, she urge DeMay to send nude photographs.

When DeMay obliged, “dani.robertts,” who prosecutors say was actually Ogoshi, allegedly threatened to send the photos to DeMay’s family and friends.

“All you’ve to do is to cooperate with me and I won’t expose you,” Ogoshi allegedly wrote to DeMay, demanding $1000.

DeMay paid $300 to Ogoshi, the indictment says, but he continued to threaten the teen.

“I’m kms rn [kill myself right now],” DeMay wrote at one point. “Bc of you.”

“Good,” Ogoshi responded in subsequent messages, according to the indictment. “Do that fast. Or I’ll make you do it. I swear to God.”

DeMay died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound after the exchange.

“As parents, we cannot begin to imagine what Jordan went through that night and how scared he was because of this senseless act,” Jennifer Buta, DeMay’s mother, said at a news conference Wednesday announcing the indictment.

Totten revealed that DeMay was just one of many targeted victims in the trio’s global sextortion operation.

“The indictment, which was unsealed this morning, alleges these defendants targeted more than 100 victims, both minors and adults,” Totten said.

The extradition process is underway in collaboration with the Nigerian government, Totten said. He added that the investigation is still ongoing, and more defendants may be charged in the future.

A GoFundMe has been organized on behalf of the DeMay family.

I just realized that the staircase and set used in Auntie Mame was also used for other Warner Bros. films including Two for Tea (1950), Oceans 11 (1960), Parrish (1961), Rome Adventure (1962), The King and Four Queens (1956), The Spirit of St. Louis (1957), So Big (1953), and a few others.

I’ve always loved this set and it should get its own billing in Auntie Mame.

My family had Flu the Week before Easter

We were all sick - my husband tested possible for flu. None of us were positive for Covid. We had terrible thick post nasal drip, enormous amount of thick mucus coughing up from lungs. Now we don’t feel sick except for coughing. But we’re not really coughing up mucus - it’s more like serous fluid. It’s thin, kind of bubbly. Not thick at all. But it goes on all day.

I have an appointment with my dr on Monday. In meantime, has anyone had this constant coughing like my family that just continues on and on? Should I ask my dr for a steroid pack? It seems to be lots of watery inflammation, but no more burning chest or sore throat like we all had when we were first sick.

Do you think the steroid will quell the inflammation and stop the constant serous stuff that makes us cough all the time,

Canadian Fundie Family Moves to Russia to Escape Homos, Immediately Regrets It

These fuckin’ idiots!

They sold all their belongings and crowdsourced a buttload of cash to move their family of 10 to Russia, all to escape homosexuals and a secular society. The Russian government promised to set them up with a farm and business loans to restart their lives.

But when they arrived, the Russian bank into which they deposited their hoard immediately froze every ruble, due to the suspiciously large bank balance in such a poor country. The promises of free land also seem to have vanished, and the family is now stranded in a place where no one speaks their language and no one in the state bureaucracy will help them without a bribe. They briefly vented their frustrations online, but the husband posted a public apology afterward, lest he be drafted or fed a polonium smoothie for speaking against the regime.

So now they’re stranded, and their money is likely gone forever, and the dad and possibly the older sons can now be drafted to die in Ukraine. All because they hated gays and wanted to live amongst purer people.

Who wants their stuff?

Killer LAPD cop Stephanie Lazarus might get out of prison

A former Los Angeles police detective for years hid the truth about how she killed her ex's new wife. Now, she could go free.

The family of Sherri Rasmussen is outraged that a California board recommended that her killer is eligible for parole.

A former Los Angeles police detective was convicted of murdering her ex-boyfriend’s wife in 2012, more than two decades after Sherri Rasmussen was killed in her Southern California condo.

But last month parole officials concluded that Stephanie Lazarus, the former detective who was sentenced to 27 years to life in prison, is eligible for parole. And Rasmussen’s relatives are outraged that the woman who hid the truth about the murder and continued to work as a law enforcement officer for more than 20 years could go free.

Lazarus, now 63 and incarcerated southeast of Los Angeles, pleaded not guilty during her trial and had not publicly admitted to her role in the 1986 killing until a parole suitability hearing on Nov. 16, according to two relatives who attended the hearing.

Connie Rasmussen, Sherri Rasmussen’s older sister, said in her family's first interview about the decision that while Lazarus acknowledged killing Sherri during the hearing, she did not apologize to relatives and appeared to downplay the seriousness of the crime, saying that she hadn’t intended to kill Sherri when she went to the Van Nuys condo on Feb. 24, 1986.

Scoop premieres on April 5 and it’s based on one of the stories in Sam McAlister’s book, by the same name. She is the producer who secured the interview with Prince Andrew and Emily Maitlis for BBC Newsnight that would torpedo his royal status and result in his removal from royal duty.

Featuring DL favorite Billie Piper playing Sam, Gillian Anderson as Emily Maitlis, and Rufus Sewell as Prince Andrew, aka “Randy Andy” which is what Sam calls him, to his face, in the trailer.

Feels like The Crown, but campier and darker. Gillian sounds like Thatcher light.

This couldn't come at a worse time for the BRF, and I appreciate that.

Harvard reverses course - will require standardized tests for admissions

Harvard College will reinstate its standardized testing requirement in admissions beginning with the Class of 2029, a surprise reversal that could leave some students scrambling to take SAT or ACT tests ahead of application deadlines in the fall.

The decision comes in the face of Harvard's previous commitments to remain test-optional through the admitted Class of 2030, a policy that was first instituted during the pandemic.

Harvard had faced mounting criticism from both academics and admissions experts for continuing its test-optional policies, even as its peer institutions returned to requiring standardized tests. In recent weeks, Yale, Dartmouth, and Brown have announced returns to required testing.

Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Hopi E. Hoekstra wrote in a statement that "standardized tests are a means for all students, regardless of their background and life experience, to provide information that is predictive of success in college and beyond.”

"More information, especially such strongly predictive information, is valuable for identifying talent from across the socioeconomic range,” she added. "With this change, we hope to strengthen our ability to identify these promising students.”

In its press release, Harvard referenced a study from Harvard-affiliated initiative Opportunity Insights, led by Brown University economist John N. Friedman '02 and Harvard economists Raj Chetty '00 and David J. Deming, which found that SAT scores are a particularly strong predictor of college success – much more so than a student's high school grade point average.

Still, the College's announcement – made exactly two weeks after it released admissions decisions for the incoming Class of 2028 – may expose it to criticism.

Harvard's reversal of its commitment to stay test-optional through the next two admissions cycles came with little warning to applicants for the Class of 2029, who have six sittings of the ACT and the SAT left before Harvard's regular decision application deadline on Jan. 1 — and even fewer before its early action deadline of Nov. 1.

We have lots of tulips and daffodils coming up now and also expect to see Oriental poppies, alliums, and peonies.

And the bleeding hearts are coming up, the Siberian irises are poking out of the ground, the lavender is growing, and the hydrangea is preparing to bloom.

Soon the porch will be draped in sweetly-fragrant honeysuckle and the pathways will be lined with trailing nasturtiums.

I love spring in the garden. Summer will then bring with it all sorts of other flowers and plants.

France's biggest Diva since Piaf, Mireille Mathieu, is finally inching her way out of the closet.

There's no disputing she has a magnificent voice, but I always loathed her. Didn't care for her repertoire, her 'special needs' look or her laughable 'je suis croyante' interviews on French TV . We mocked her as kids.

In recent years there have been rumours that she's gay and of course it makes a bit of sense now because she's never been linked in all these decades to anyone and she's always refused to discuss her private life or her political views in interviews. Until now

In this interview with a gay TV presenter, from Le Figaro she discusses her compassion for the homeless, her support for abortion rights (!), and her support for gay rights (!). My Swiss French husbear says it's killing her, she's going to come out

I think she's been trolling us all these decades.

If Marie Osmond had made "Grease"

Marie Osmond was offered the part of Sandy in "Grease"; the studio also offered the part of Teen Angel to her brother Donny to sweeten the deal. On the advice of her father and brothers, who did not like the idea of Marie playing a character who becomes trashy and slutty at the film's end, she turned it down, and decided instead to make a joint film debut in a more family-friendly film, "Goin' Coconuts," which was a massive flop.

Marie has said she does not regret making the choice, but I am curious what would have happened had she played Sandy. Would she have risen to the stardom heights of her friend ONJ? Would she have been believable in leather pants crushing a cigarette with stiletto heels while telling Danny, "Tell me about it, stud!"?

"A croning ceremony is a rite of initiation into the wisdom years of life. A crone is a woman, who is usually over 56 and having gone through menopause, and who is recognized by others as a wise woman. She is a spiritual elder and a wise mentor. She is a treasure of power and wisdom...They challenge the oppression by patriarchal societies of elder women as old, unbeautiful has-beens, and useless."

Hi, this afternoon I went on a great date.

We initially were going to meet for coffee, but then we changed it to coffee and a walk around the park. It was wonderful.

I am an American law student in my last year of school and he is a resident physician from India. We are about the same age. We discussed our childhoods, our careers, the partition of India, Nehru, the British Empire, and Beethoven. We even ended up talking about past relationships and what we learned about ourselves and what we do/don't want in a relationship.

We didn't want the date to end, so we went back to my apartment, which is close to the park. We then listened to music and talked some more. He had to go to a dinner, but we kissed afterwards.

I moved to an affluent suburb that is right outside a major metropolitan area in 2021. I joined NextDoor, mainly looking for recommendations for local services, like handymen and whatnot. At the time, about 90% of the posts were some variation of, "OMG, we are so lucky to live here!" It is a place of great natural beauty, coastal features, a mountain, hiking trails, you name it.

In the last year the discourse has devolved into people going off on each other. There are numerous complaints about entitled teens on e-bikes terrorizing seniors, the same teens stealing from the local Safeway and ruining the trails. Then there are endless threads about irresponsible dog walkers losing control of their dogs who then go on to attack small dogs.

Scarlett Johansson Orders This Relatable Comfort Food Wherever She Goes

As a Marvel movie star, a red carpet staple, one of the world’s highest-paid actresses, and a person who has won everything from a Tony Award to a People’s Choice Award, you might expect that Scarlett Johansson has expensive taste.

But in another piece of evidence that celebrities are just like us sometimes (in case you missed it, Hoda Kotb digs first dates at Chili’s and Frank Sinatra has a sweet spot for Entenmann’s coffee cake!), Johansson recently revealed that she has a very relatable comfort food.

Scarlett Johansson's Go-To Restaurant Order

During an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” to promote the 2017 comedy flick Rough Night, Colbert asked Johansson if there was a comfort food dish she orders on repeat to feel grounded while traveling so much to promote her dozens of films.

Without hesitation, the actor answers: “Um, chicken wings. I try chicken wings…wherever I am.”

Colbert asks if she can find them on menus everywhere, to which Johansson replies with a giggle, “Unfortunately, not! I wish that you could! But there are some countries that…they want to make the Americans feel at home, and so you’ll go to a hotel bar in Shanghai, and there will be wings! And it’ll be wonderful.”

This isn’t the first time Johansson and chicken wings have shared the spotlight. In fact, the actress made a hilarious appearance on the wildly popular, progressively-spicier chicken wing eating show "Hot Ones." She made it to “the tip-top of spice mountain” and was “yodeling from the summit,” meaning that she conquered even the most fiery of wings with flair.

Back to her chat with the comedian/host, Colbert confides in Johansson that he, too, has a penchant for this popular brew pub food option: “That’s my go-to. It’s how I test a hotel. I order wings and a Caesar salad.”

“Oh my gosh, me too! We are samesies,” Johansson says excitedly.

“I say that all the time. Me and Scarlett Johansson; kinda samesies,” Colbert laughs.

Alec Baldwin had "no control of his own emotions" on "Rust" set where cinematographer was fatally shot, prosecutor says

Will Alec get off? The trial is set for July 2024. I can't believe they're still trying to release the movie after all this. April 9, 2024 / 10:06 AM EDT / CBS/AFP In a court filing released Monday, prosecutor Kari Morrissey sketched the outlines of what the jury might hear, including how Alec Baldwin's allegedly unpredictable behavior contributed to the tragedy, and how he kept changing his story in its aftermath. "Mr. Baldwin was frequently screaming and cursing at himself, at crew members or at no one and not for any particular reason," Morrissey wrote. "To watch Mr. Baldwin's conduct on the set of 'Rust' is to witness a man who has absolutely no control of his own emotions and absolutely no concern for how his conduct affects those around him. "Witnesses have testified that it was this exact conduct that contributed to safety compromises on set." The film's young armorer, Hannah Gutierrez, who was responsible for loading the live round into the gun Baldwin used, was convicted last month of involuntary manslaughter after a two-week trial that heard how her lackadaisical approach to the job had led to a series of dangerous episodes. Hannah Gutierrez, who faces up to 18 months in prison, is due to be sentenced next week. Her attorney, Jason Bowles, previously told CBS News he plans to appeal "a number of issues that occurred in the trial." 0Morrissey blamed both the 26-year-old armorer and the veteran actor for the shooting. "The combination of Hannah Gutierrez's negligence and inexperience and Alec Baldwin's complete lack of concern for the safety of those around him would prove deadly," Morrissey wrote. In her filing, Morrissey said Baldwin, whose high-powered legal team includes eight attorneys, has repeatedly contradicted himself about the shooting in official interviews and in media appearances. This has included a lengthy sit-down with ABC journalist George Stephanopoulos, which she called a "shameless attempt to escape culpability," and in which he claimed for the first time that he had never pulled the trigger. "Every time Mr. Baldwin spoke, a different version of events emerged from his mouth, and his later statements contradicted his previous statements." An FBI investigation found that the gun could not have fired if the trigger had not been pulled, evidence that is expected to be presented at trial. The October 2021 tragedy sent shockwaves through Hollywood and led to calls for a complete ban on the use of weapons on movie sets.

Industry insiders, however, insisted that rules were already in place to prevent such incidents, and that those working on "Rust" had simply not followed them.

Baldwin is on bail awaiting trial. If convicted, he faces up to 18 months in prison. The filming of "Rust" concluded last year in the state of Montana, with Hutchins' widower joining the crew as a producer. No release date has yet been announced. Last month, Gloria Allred and John Carpenter, attorneys for Hutchins' parents and sister, told CBS News that Hutchins' family was "satisfied" that Hannah Gutierrez-Reed was found guilty.

"We look forward to the justice system continuing to make sure that everyone else who is responsible for Halyna's death is required to face the legal consequences for their actions," they said.

School for students wit autism turning blind eye when black employee was systematically abusing white children with autism

Fractured bones, a knocked-out tooth, deep bruises and immeasurable heartache. Those are just some of the injuries suffered by at least three students with autism allegedly at the hands of a Littleton Public Schools paraprofessional trusted to care for them. Children have no ability to tell when someone is hurting him.

That video went out showing child aboard that LPS bus sitting next to paraprofessional Kiarra Jones. It was recorded March 18 and captures Jones, 28, physically abusing the 10-year-old boy – repeatedly elbowing him in the stomach, slapping his face, and stomping on his feet.

Mother said she noticed strange bumps and bruises on her son months ago, dating back to September 2023. She brought her concerns to staff at The Joshua School, who confirmed with her Dax did not suffer those injuries while in their care. Jess said she then brought her concerns to LPS, but they told her there was nothing to be concerned about. Then, Jess said, her son's injuries became worse, and she demanded answers from the district.

Mother notified school on March 18 and on March 19 got a phone call from Littleton police informing me that an LPS employee had severely abused my child," she said.

Now, the parents of three young students are prepared to sue the school district. They say LPS knew about their abuse concerns for months and seemingly turned a blind eye.

Hamas wins, International pressures forces Israel withdrawal from Southern Gaza

IDF ends active ground invasion, completely withdraws from southern Gaza

The IDF on Sunday announced that it had concluded the active invasion stage of the war for now while leaving open the possibility of a future new invasion of Rafah in deep southern Gaza.

In terms of IDF soldiers, this means that the IDF has withdrawn all of Division 98 from Khan Yunis in southern Gaza while maintaining one plus brigades - the Nahal brigade and portions of Brigade 401 – in northern and central Gaza.

Although a top IDF official said that this change had nothing to do with US pressure, the timing was unmistakable in coming right after the IDF’s disastrous mistaken killing of seven humanitarian aid workers last week.

The decision also came less than two days after Israel opened the Erez Crossing and Ashdod port to transfer humanitarian aid, decisions made under threat by the US of potentially losing weapons support after Jerusalem had refused these requests from Washington for months.

Critically, this means that Palestinians can, on one hand, move freely within southern Gaza and Khan Yunis and that there is a complete vacuum for preventing a return of Hamas governance, but the IDF is keeping northern and central Gaza cut off from the south.

This means Palestinians cannot move from south to north and that over two million Palestinians, more than half of whom are northern Gaza residents, remain separated from their communities, with somewhere between 150,000-300,000 Palestinians remaining in northern Gaza, who never left.

At one point, the IDF had five divisions, between 30,000 and 40,000 ground forces, deep into Gaza, as well as even larger forces circling the Strip.

Those forces were reduced significantly in mid-January when the IDF declared it had achieved operational control of northern Gaza and released Division 63 to return to Fits standard northern border duties facing off against Hezbollah.

But from December until now, Division 98 was destroying Hamas’s forces in and around Khan Yunis, at one point with around seven brigades.

By early February, Division 98 had achieved most of its mission, but it continued more minor operations in areas such as the Hamed neighborhoods of Khan Yunis.

It had been accepted conventional wisdom from top Israeli officials that a major reason for keeping Division 98 in Khan Yunis was to achieve concessions from Hamas in the hostage exchange negotiations.

Hamas immediately declared the IDF withdrawal, even partial, a victory for sticking to its position of demanding IDF withdrawals, including of troops in northern Gaza.

The world’s attention will likely now shift to whether the IDF will invade Rafah first, whether Hamas will cut a deal for the hostages to avoid such an invasion, or whether Israel will concede further to Hamas’s demands for returning more Palestinians to northern Gaza.

An IDF official tried to frame the withdrawal from Khan Yunis as opening up Rafah as a stronger possibility because now hundreds of thousands of Palestinians may return there.

The official said that if more Palestinians leave Rafah, evacuating the remaining civilians will be easier without needing to take active, aggressive measures to move them.

In addition, the IDF said that its operation taking over Shifa Hospital a second time shows that it can quickly penetrate and take down Hamas if it tries to reform military units.

RFK Jr. Adviser Makes Shocking Admission about Campaign’s True Goal

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has been described as a spoiler candidate for president by supporters of Joe Biden, and even by Kennedy himself. But the Kennedy campaign’s New York director is taking it a step further.

In a meeting with Republicans in the Empire State, Rita Palma said that “our mutual enemy is Biden.”

“The only way that Trump can even, remote possibility of taking New York is if Bobby is on the ballot. If it’s Trump versus Biden, Biden wins. Biden wins six days, seven days a week. With Bobby in the mix, anything can happen,” Palma said on video of the meeting, dated Friday and viewed by CNN.

The video, which was posted to YouTube before being taken down, showed Palma arguing for Kennedy’s candidacy as a way to block Biden from being reelected.

“The only way for him, for Bobby, to shake it up and to get rid of Biden is if he’s on the ballot in every state, including New York,” she said.

Palma even told people to go to Pennsylvania, a swing state, to knock on doors for Trump, saying that she had done so in 2016 and 2020.

She described the scenario of neither Biden nor Trump getting the required 270 electoral votes to win the 2024 election. If that were to happen, the House of Representatives would decide who will be the next president of the United States. Palma argued that Kennedy winning blue states like New York could make that happen.

“Who are they going to pick? If it’s a Republican Congress, they’ll pick Trump. So we’re rid of Biden either way,” she said.

Protestors chant “Death to Israel”, “Death to America” at rally in Michigan

At International Al-Quds Day Rally in Dearborn, Michigan Protesters Chant “Death to America!”; Speakers at the Rally: America Is One of the “Rottenest Countries” on Earth; Israel Is ISIS, Nazis, a Cancer

Video that captured chants of "death to America" and "death to Israel" by some attendees of a Dearborn rally on Friday went viral over the weekend, underscoring tensions over U.S. support for Israel's six-month-long assault against Hamas in Gaza.

The rally was held on the International Day of Al-Quds, an annual pro-Palestinian event held on the last Friday of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan to express support for Palestinians in their decades-old land dispute with Jews. People gathered in front of the Henry Ford Centennial Library on Michigan Avenue in Dearborn holding Palestinian flags and yellow signs that read "Money for jobs and education not for Israel's occupation." They chanted in unison, "Free, Free Palestine" and "End the occupation now."

The event was organized by Tarek Bazzi, a local activist, who spoke out against what he called Israel's "satanic actions" and "the United States government providing funds that allow the atrocities." He quoted the Black Panther movement and Malcolm X talking about oppressive U.S. actions in other countries and, during Bazzi's brief pause, a man from the crowd shouted three times in Arabic, "Death to America." Several in the crowd can be heard echoing his chant in response each time.

The Washington, D.C.-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) on Sunday circulated on X (formerly Twitter) transcribed video clips of Bazzi's speech from a video by Dearborn.org. One clip was viewed 2.6 million times by late Monday, the platform reported. The video came just two months after MEMRI executive director Steven Stalinsky declared Dearborn "America's Jihad Capital" in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, a column that drew condemnation, locally and from President Joe Biden.

In his speech, Bazzi decried continued U.S. support for Israel and called for condemnation of America's role. "Any system that would allow such devilries to happen and would support it does not deserve to exist on God's Earth," he said of the U.S. "So when these fools ask if Israel has a right to exist, the chant 'Death to Israel' has become the most logical chant shouted across the world today."

At that time, a man in the crowd yelled "Death to Israel" in Arabic, and several in the crowd echoed his words, as well.

"This is no longer an extreme position, this is no longer a fringe position, this is the position of every single human being on earth that has a mind, a heart and a soul and has a political insight and awareness," Bazzi said.

Dearborn Mayor Abdullah Hammoud denounced the chants Monday as unacceptable, saying: "The hateful rhetoric heard on Friday does not reflect the opinion of the members of this community."

"We reject all inflammatory and violent statements made at the gathering," Hammoud wrote on X, formerly Twitter. "The Dearborn community stands for peace and justice for all people. We are proud to call this city and this country home."

The head of one Jewish community organization who saw the video said he doesn't believe it reflects the majority opinion of those in attendance. Still, it was "frightening," said Sam Dubin, interim executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council/AJC in Bloomfield Hills.

"For those people at the rally, who were chanting 'Death to Israel' and 'Death to America', and linking the two in such a vile and frightening way, it was scary,” Dubin said. "We're sympathetic to the loss of innocent Palestinian life. And we understand that they're victims of Hamas. And Israel is responding to the war that Hamas is waging. So it's complex, but what's not complex is calling for the death to Israel and death to the United States.”

Michael Jackson's accusers seek to open sealed records that include nude photos of the singer

Michael Jackson’s production company is fighting to keep sealed court records out of the hands of two of his accusers ahead of a forthcoming jury trial.

MJJ Productions filed a motion Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court to quash four subpoenas issued by Jackson's alleged sex-abuse victims, Wade Robson, 41, and James Safechuck, 46. The subpoenas, directed at the county sheriff's offices and the district attorneys of Los Angeles and Santa Barbara counties, are for sealed police records related to Jackson’s 2005 pedophilia charges.

The production company believes Robson and Safechuck's actual target is a series of nude photographs of Jackson included in the records.

The nude photographs were taken by police in 1993 amid accusations from a 13-year-old boy that he was sexually abused by Jackson, which culminated in an estimated $20-million settlement.

They are also protected by a court-entered protective order, MJJ Productions said in the Wednesday filing.

“Beyond the invasion of privacy issues, the available records indicate the photographs Plaintiffs now seek are also subject to a strict protective order agreed to by Michael Jackson and Santa Barbara law enforcement and entered by the Santa Barbara Superior Court," said the filing, according to the Mail Online.

MJJ Productions went on to say that the photos were “not taken willingly” and were “the result of a court-ordered search based on a false statement in what became a discredited criminal investigation.”

“To allow Plaintiffs to exploit that series of circumstances to their benefit by obtaining those photographs now adds a second defilement to the first,” the company concluded in the filing, the Mail Online reported.

The motion comes less than a year after a California appeals court revived lawsuits from Robson and Safechuck that had been thrown out and later revisited twice since they were first filed in 2013 (Robson) and 2014 (Safechuck).

The second dismissal came in 2021 from the L.A. County Superior Court, which ruled that the corporations MJJ Productions Inc. and MJJ Ventures Inc. — of which Jackson was in sole control — had no legal duty to prevent sexual abuse of children by the singer.

In its August 2023 decision, the state appeals court reversed the decision, approving Robson and Safechuck together to take their abuse claims to a trial — in which they will need to prove not only that Jackson abused them, but that production company staff were complicit.

Jonathan Steinsapir, attorney for the Jackson estate, said his client was “disappointed" with the appellate court's decision.

“Two distinguished trial judges repeatedly dismissed these cases on numerous occasions over the last decade because the law required it,” Steinsapir told the Associated Press. “We remain fully confident that Michael is innocent of these allegations, which are contrary to all credible evidence and independent corroboration, and which were only first made years after Michael’s death by men motivated solely by money.”

Howard Weitzman, the late attorney who previously represented Jackson, similarly described Robson and Safechuck as “serial perjurers, whose sole agenda has been to extract money from Jackson’s rightful heirs and chosen beneficiaries,” after the release of the 2019 HBO documentary "Leaving Neverland."

In the documentary, the repeat plaintiffs recounted the abuse they endured as boys at Jackson’s Neverland Ranch.

Conjoined Twin Abby Hensel Got Married in a 2021 Wedding Ceremony

Conjoined twin Abby Hensel is married.

The former TLC reality star, 34, who first gained notoriety alongside sister Brittany when the pair appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1996, tied the knot with Josh Bowling, a nurse and United States Army veteran, in 2021, according to public records obtained by Today.

The Hensels' Facebook profile photo appears to be a wedding image, with the conjoined twins wearing a wedding dress, while Bowling, in a grey suit, stands before them holding their hand.

According to Today, the twins are now fifth grade teachers and reside in Minnesota, where they were born and raised.

Bowling’s Facebook page also features happy images of him with the twins enjoying ice cream and traveling together. Additionally, his X profile, which is linked to his Facebook account, reads, "Christian, Father, Husband, Veteran, and occasional gamer."

PEOPLE reached out to the Abby and Brittany Hensel, as well as Bowling, but did not immediately get a response.

The Hensels are dicephalus conjoined twins, a rare form of partial twinning with two heads side by side on one torso. They share a bloodstream and all organs below the waist. Abby controls their right arm and leg, while Brittany controls the left.

Following their Oprah appearance, the Hensel's lives were documented on the TLC reality series Abby & Brittany, which followed them as they prepared to graduate from Minnesota's Bethel College and later traveled to Europe.

"People have been curious about us since we were born, for obvious reasons," the twins said in the first episode of the eight-part series, according to ABC. "But our parents never let us use that as an excuse. We were raised to believe we could do anything we wanted to do."

At birth, doctors presented the possibility of separating the twins. But their parents, Patty and Mike, decided against the surgery after being told there was little chance that both could survive the procedure.

“How could you pick between the two?” Mike said in a 2001 interview with TIME.

In that same interview, he also talked about the possibility of marriage one day for Abby and Brittany. At the time, the magazine reported that they were already asking their father about finding husbands someday.

Knowing that other conjoined twins have married, he thought, why not? "They're good-looking girls. They're witty. They've got everything going for them, except they're together," Mike said.

FBI is sounding the alarm over the terrorist attacks in the United States

Intelligence officials are sounding the alarm over the increasing possibilities of attacks at “mass gatherings such as sports stadiums, concert venues, or houses of worship in the United States” like concerts by ISIS and even “lone wolves.” The FBI is particularly concerned about potential “copycat” attacks similar to the mass shooting at a Russian concert hall last month. This comes just days before millions of people will be gathering to watch the Solar Eclipse in dozens of cities across the US. Source: ABC News

Favorite musical overture

One of my all-time favorites is "My Fair Lady" because it pointedly doesn't start with what they knew would become one of the hit songs from the how. instead, they start with several bars of an exposition song, "You Did It," played in an especially up-tempo arrangement, which generates so much excitement right away--it's such a bold choice to start the show.

Country star Morgan Wallen arrested after throwing chair off rooftop

Country music singer Morgan Wallen was arrested overnight in Nashville on felony charges after he allegedly threw a chair from a downtown rooftop for "no legitimate purpose," police said.

Wallen, 30, was booked into jail early Monday morning on three counts of reckless endangerment and one count of disorderly conduct in connection to the late Sunday night incident, the Metro Nashville Police Department reported.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by USA TODAY, at 10:53 p.m. local time, two police officers were standing in front of Chief's Bar in the city's entertainment district on Lower Broadway when they saw a chair fall from above and hit the street about three feet from them.

In the affidavit, police wrote, the bar's staff members told officers Wallen threw the chair, and when officers reviewed video footage of incident, it showed him "lunging and throwing an object off the roof."

Chief's Bar, owned by country music singer, Eric Church, is a six-story building.

The Dark Ego Vehicle Principle

I just learned something new today. Have y'all heard of this concept?

"This principle states that individuals with dark personalities, such as high narcissistic traits, are inclined to become involved in certain kinds of ideologies and political activism. We argue that narcissistic individuals can be attracted...activism [which] may provide them with opportunities to obtain positive self-presentation (e.g., virtue signaling), gain status, dominate others, and engage in social conflicts to get their thrills."

Reminds me of certain virtue-signaling ex-royals! As well other very loud, annoying celebrities. Jameela jamil, anyone? BLM? It sounds like the secret sauce of this new wave of leftist fascism to me. We're seeing this everywhere right now. People using seemingly worthy causes to control and dominate others and to draw attention to themselves. "Fuel" as HG Tudor calls it.

What do we think of The Dark Ego Vehicle Principle? Can we turn the tide on this trend, or has social media created too big of a platform? I think we will have to vote with our actions and stop enabling them by getting off social media en masse.

Georgia Man Missing After Heading to Maryland to Look After Sick Grandmother

ATLANTA — A Georgia man has not been seen in a week after he drove to Maryland to check on his grandmother who is sick.

Montgomery County Police said Andrew Mostyn Jr. was last seen March 30 around 4 p.m. leaving a home in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Mostyn’s mother, Joy Dameron, told WUSA-TV that her son went to the Nation Mall in Washington, DC, and told his grandmother he would see her on Sunday for Easter, but he hasn’t been seen since.

“He had Easter plans with her... he told her I’ll get up to go to Easter service, hide eggs with the cousins. They had plans for the next day,” Dameron told the TV station.

Mostyn hasn’t shown up for work and his dog, Koda, was left at his home.

That same night he disappeared, Mostyn’s family said they received cryptic messages from his cell phone.

“There were just a couple of weird texts to my niece. Like, ‘come over’. And he wasn’t even there, he was already missing,” Dameron said.

Dameron said she just wants to know her son is OK.

“I hope you’re safe and I hope we see you soon,” she said.

Mostyn was last seen driving a white 2000 Ford F-150 with Georgia plates RYH3051. Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call 911.

Alan Greenspan

He was catapulted into the public sector when Gerald Ford asked him to lead his Economic Advisors. There, he fought with Henry Kissinger and James Schlesinger, outwitting both. Then, in 1987, Ronald Reagan asked him to replace Paul Volcker as the Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

At the Fed, he was seen as a controversial figure to both Democrats and Republicans with his Libertarian handling of the S&L Crisis, the Dot Com Bubble, and the lead to the Great Financial Crisis. His admirers referred to him as "Maestro" of his mystic-like control of the world economy.

A lover of baseball and classical music, he quietly retired to New York in 2006 with his wife Andrea Mitchell.

James Carville: Young minority voters are leaving us in droves

Democratic strategist James Carville warned Sunday that the Democratic Party’s eroding numbers among young minority voters are “horrifying” heading into the presidential election.

“I’ve been very vocal about this,” the former Bill Clinton campaign strategist said on his “Carville’s Classroom” podcast. “It’s horrifying our numbers among younger voters, particularly younger blacks, younger latinos … younger people of color. Particularly males.”

“We’re not shedding them, they’re leaving in droves,” he added.

Last year, 66% of black adults leaned or identified as Democrat while 19% said they leaned or were Republican, according to a Gallup survey released in February.

The 47-percentage-point spread is the lowest in at least 25 years — and down 19 percentage points from 2020, when 77% of black adults identified as Democrats and just 11% identified as Republicans.

Similarly, the poll found 47% of Hispanics calling themselves Democrats and 35% identifying as Republican, whereas in 2021, 57% of Hispanics identified as Democrat and 26% said they were Republican.

Both demographics are key Democratic voting blocs, and like his party, President Biden has also been hemorrhaging support from black and Hispanic voters.

A USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll released in January showed the 81-year-old president’s support among black voters has declined to 63%, down from 87% in 2020.

The same survey found former President Donald Trump with an edge over Biden with voters under 35 (37%-33%) and Hispanic voters (39%-34%).

Carville argued that Democrats must convey that the “consequences” of electing Trump to another White House term will affect young black and Hispanic Americans “for the next 35 years” of their lives.

“We’re not going to convince under 30 under 35, ‘Oh, we really built a great country for you,’” he said. “You’re looking at this job market … I don’t think you’re going to buy that.”

“Forget birth control pills, forget reproductive rights, forget environmental protections. forget anything.”

Dylan Rounds remains found in Utah desert

The "skeletal remains" of a 19-year-old Utah farmer are believed to have been found nearly two years after he vanished, according to authorities.

Dylan Rounds was allegedly murdered in 2022. In March 2023, James Brenner was charged with one count of aggravated murder in the death of Rounds, and one count of abuse or desecration of a human body, according to court records, per EastIdahoNews.com.

“On April 9, 2024, skeletal remains presumed to belong to Dylan Rounds were recovered in the remote western Box Elder County area of Lucin,” a press release from the Box Elder County Sheriff’s Office began. “The remains are in the possession of the Utah Office of the Medical Examiner for confirmation of identity.”

“Our hearts go out to the family of Dylan Rounds. We offer our sincerest condolences for the loss of their family member. We understand that the pain of their loss is immeasurable, and we want to express our deepest sympathies to them. It is our hope that they can find peace moving forward,” the release continued.

McDonald’s $25 ‘deal’ goes viral, sparks debate over California’s minimum wage increase: ‘Your new normal’

Poor fatties.

She was in the drive-thru of a Southern California McDonald’s location when she saw a sign for a 40-piece Chicken McNugget meal deal, which also included two large fries.

The price of the meal bundle was $25.39 – including sales tax, it would come to roughly $27.

In the video, the social media user lamented that the meal didn’t even include a drink.

“Okay, so it’s $25.39 for 40-piece nuggets and two large fries,” she said.

“You couldn’t even throw in the Sprite?”

“You couldn’t even throw in, like, a medium Sprite in there? Holy crap.”

While the meal is designed to serve four people, it demonstrates how prices at the fast food chain have risen over the years.

A recent study by FinanceBuzz found that McDonald’s prices have increased by 100% since 2014.

Snopes Confirms Sheila Jackson Lee Tells Students Moon Is Planet Made Up of 'Gases'

On April 8, 2024, U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, spoke at Booker T. Washington High School ahead of the solar eclipse happening later that day, and made a number of incorrect statements about the moon, sun and planets.

Various X accounts, including the official @RNCResearch account managed by the Republican National Committee, shared clips of her speech in which she appeared to say: "𝑨 𝒇𝒖𝒍𝒍 𝒎𝒐𝒐𝒏 𝒊𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒑𝒍𝒆𝒕𝒆, 𝒓𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒅𝒆𝒅 𝒄𝒊𝒓𝒄𝒍𝒆 𝒘𝒉𝒊𝒄𝒉 𝒊𝒔 𝒎𝒂𝒅𝒆 𝒖𝒑 𝒎𝒐𝒔𝒕𝒍𝒚 𝒐𝒇 𝒈𝒂𝒔𝒆𝒔, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕'𝒔 𝒘𝒉𝒚 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒒𝒖𝒆𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝒊𝒔 𝒘𝒉𝒚 𝒐𝒓 𝒉𝒐𝒘 𝒄𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒘𝒆 𝒂𝒔 𝒉𝒖𝒎𝒂𝒏𝒔 𝒍𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒐𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒎𝒐𝒐𝒏? 𝑨𝒓𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒈𝒂𝒔𝒆𝒔 𝒔𝒖𝒄𝒉 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒘𝒆 𝒄𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒅𝒐 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕?"

She also can be heard calling the moon a planet: "𝑾𝒆 𝒉𝒂𝒗𝒆 𝒚𝒆𝒕 𝒕𝒐 𝒌𝒏𝒐𝒘 𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒄𝒂𝒏 𝒍𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒐𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒎𝒐𝒐𝒏. 𝑩𝒖𝒕 𝑰 𝒅𝒐𝒏'𝒕 𝒌𝒏𝒐𝒘 𝒂𝒃𝒐𝒖𝒕 𝒚𝒐𝒖, 𝑰 𝒘𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝒕𝒐 𝒃𝒆 𝒇𝒊𝒓𝒔𝒕 𝒊𝒏 𝒍𝒊𝒏𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒌𝒏𝒐𝒘 𝒉𝒐𝒘 𝒕𝒐 𝒍𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒐 𝒃𝒆 𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒔𝒖𝒓𝒗𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒐𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒎𝒐𝒐𝒏 — 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕'𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒐𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒑𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒆𝒕 𝒘𝒉𝒊𝒄𝒉 𝒘𝒆'𝒓𝒆 𝒈𝒐𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒐 𝒔𝒆𝒆 𝒔𝒉𝒐𝒓𝒕𝒍𝒚 ."

Lee did indeed make the erroneous statements quoted above, as evidenced by footage from a livestream of the event shared on her own official X account. However, after the eclipse, she posted that she had misspoken and intended to say the sun is made up of gases.

Sheila Jackson Lee as a former member of the Science Committee was Ranking Member of the Space and Aeronautics Committee.

This is not Jackson Lee's first instance of cosmic confusion. As a Texas Monthly report from 1997 explained, the congresswoman once asked scientists whether our rover on Mars managed to photograph the American flag planted there by Neil Armstrong.

-----------------

I'm not certain changing her story to the gasses of the sun allowing us to live on the moon is much of an improvement.

University of Missouri student, 22, went missing from Nashville bar

A family is pleading for answers in the search for a University of Missouri student who has been missing since Friday after he left a bar in Nashville, Tennessee.

Riley Strain, 22, a senior, was last seen Friday night by friends at a bar in Nashville’s bustling Broadway area, known for nightlife, Nashville police said.

He was visiting town with his Delta Chi fraternity brothers for their spring formal, the St. Louis-Post Dispatch reported, but they got separated after he was asked to leave country singer Luke Bryan's bar, Luke’s 32 Bridge Food + Drink, his family told NBC affiliate WSMV of Nashville.

“At approximately 9:45 p.m., he was asked to leave Luke Bryan’s bar,” Strain’s stepfather, Chris Whiteid, told the station. “They got separated. The boys called him, and he said, 'I’m walking back to my hotel.' They didn’t think anything about it.”

When his friends returned to Tempo Hotel, about a half-mile away, they saw Strain’s room key but no sign of him. When they tried to call him, his phone was dead.

The young men went out to search for him, checked his Snapchat locations, and they went through the other fraternity brothers’ rooms but did not find him, so they called his parents.

Whiteid, along with his wife, Michelle Whiteid, traveled from Springfield, Missouri, to Nashville to search for him.

“We talk every day, multiple times a day,” Michelle Whiteid said. “This is the longest I’ve ever gone without talking to him.”

“We’re in a bad dream. Can we wake up? Please, just let us wake up,” her husband told WSMV.

Chris Whiteid told the Post-Dispatch that according to security video, it appeared that Strain was heading back to the hotel but took a wrong turn. It's not clear where the video was from.

Searches took place Monday, including a helicopter search of Gay Street, the area where Strain was last seen, the riverbank and a ground search, “but to no avail,” police said.

On Tuesday, police shared security video showing Strain, wearing a two-tone shirt, crossing 1st Avenue North to Gay Street at 9:47 p.m. Friday. That cross-section is about 0.7 miles from the bar he was at earlier.

TC Restaurant Group, the operator and owner of Luke’s 32 Bridge, said it, too, was working with police to provide security camera video and other potentially helpful information to aid in the search.

Strain is described as 6-foot-5 with a thin build, blue eyes and light brown hair.

New York City wants to let 800,000 non-citizens vote in city elections

The New York City Council is asking the state's highest court to reverse rulings that struck down a law that would let non-citizens vote in local elections.

An appeals court in February ruled the election law, passed by the council in 2021, unconstitutional. The law would have let upwards of 800,000 green card holders vote in local elections.

"The Council passed Local Law 11 of 2022 to enfranchise 800,000 New Yorkers who live in our city, pay taxes, and contribute to our communities," council spokesperson, Rendy Desamours, said in a statement. "Today’s filing to appeal the Second Department’s recent decision seeks a determination from the state’s highest court that the law is consistent with the State Constitution, Election Law, and the Municipal Home Rule Law."

Empowering New Yorkers to participate in our local democratic process can only strengthen New York City by increasing civic engagement," he added. "We look forward to the Court of Appeals’ consideration of the Council’s appeal."

The case will head to the New York Court of Appeals.

Mayor Eric Adams, who supported the law, has not commented about the appeal. Fox News Digital has reached out to his office.

Immigration activists praised the council's decision.

This case is just one more example of how Republicans are using the courts to disenfranchise Black and Brown voters across the country."

Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, a Republican who represents Staten Island, was a plaintiff in the lawsuit that got it struck down.

"There is nothing more important than preserving the integrity of our election system and this unconstitutional law that has been struck down in two consecutive wins only diminished the voices of our citizenry," she said Friday in response to an immigrant activist group that is also challenging the earlier ruling. "I urge the City to not waste more taxpayer money to join this appeal and instead focus on the needs of hardworking New Yorkers who are facing so many quality of life and public safety issues."

Jennifer Aniston Is Jealous of Julia Roberts’ Plastic Surgery Work, Says Source

Yahoo Entertainment Jennifer Aniston Is Jealous of Julia Roberts’ Plastic Surgery Work, Says Source Michael Gioia Wed, April 3, 2024 at 7:10 AM MST 1 min read

Julia Roberts' subtle and strategic nips and tucks are giving Jennifer Aniston a serious case of sour grapes, an insider exclusively tells Life & Style.

Roberts, 56, "is quietly boasting she's found a way to turn back the clock without going over the top," the source says. "She looks fantastic. You can see that she's had a little work on her eyes, but nothing too extreme. It's done wonders for her self-esteem and her marriage because her husband, Danny Moder, can't keep his hands off her."

But Roberts' youthful glow is causing Aniston, 55, to turn green with envy, according to Life & Style sources.

"Jen's getting trolled for the work she's had done, while Julia is being feted as this forever young sex symbol. She is frantically trying to find out who Julia's doctor is, but she's getting shut out," says an insider.

"It looks like Julia's had Botox to her lower to the forehead and her upper eyes done," says top Chicago plastic surgeon Dr. Otto Placik. "I think she's likely had Botox and filler to the lip region and maybe in the cheeks as well."

He also points out some plastic-surgery fails on the former Friends star. "I think Jennifer got filler eyelids that is not sitting well, and it looks as though her lower eyelids have been tightened," says Placik, who has not treated either star.

"It looks like she's got undesirable filler in what we call the tear trough. And then she looks like she's definitely had some filler to her lower lip."

How much have you lost with DJT Stock ?

Shares of Trump Media, the majority Trump-owned parent of the right-wing social media platform Truth Social, fell 11% Monday to just above $36.

That’s some 54% below the peak $79 per share Trump Media fetched on March 26, its first day of trading under its DJT ticker upon the completion of its reverse merger with blank-check company Digital World Acquisition Corp.

The value of Trump’s 58% stake in Trump Media, has accordingly cratered in the 13-day stretch, falling from $6.25 billion to $2.86 billion.

That knocked his net worth from its March peak of more than $7 billion to $4.7 billion, according to Forbes’ estimates.

Biden tells Arizonans ‘elect me, I’m in the 20th century’ in latest brutal gaffe

WASHINGTON — President Biden said Wednesday that voters should “Elect me, I’m in the 20th century” — another brutal gaffe that instantly went viral among critics who say he’s too old for another four-year term.

Biden, 81, made the statement during the conclusion of a joint press conference in the White House Rose Garden alongside Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

“Why doesn’t everybody holler at once?” the president groused as journalists shouted questions at him, before pausing to answer several queries from reporters who had not been pre-selected by his press officers.

Peter Alexander of NBC News asked Biden to address the issue of abortion in Arizona, where the state Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that an 1864 law banning abortion from the moment of conception remains in effect, with only a narrow exception to save the life of a mother.

“Elect me,” Biden replied when asked for his reaction.

“I’m in the 20, 20th century,” said the president, who regularly attracts negative commentary for appearing confused in public or misstating significant facts.

A moment later, Biden caught himself and added, “21st century, not back then. They weren’t even a state.”

The nation’s oldest-ever president trailed off as reporters shouted additional unrelated questions.

In response to a different reporter’s question about how the war in Ukraine may end, Biden said, “The war in Ukraine comes to an end by the House leader allowing a vote [on additional military aid].”

Polls consistently show broad voter concern about Biden’s mental fitness for office. He would be 86 if he completes a full second term in 2029.

Former President Donald Trump, 77, is nearly as old as Biden, but argues that he retains his cognitive abilities better than his successor, a statement that polls indicate most Americans agree with.

Enty Lawyer identified

Enty Lawyer the blind item king from Crazy Days and Nights has been outed and he isn't even practicing law if he is even an actual attorney. He is a fifty something year old podcaster and blogger who is in Indio, CA, He doesn't even live in LA. He is allegedlgy a very sick person and has done horrific things to women. His whole thing where he exposes predators is rich as he is also one. I have been in communication with a woman he has done terrible things to! He recorded hours of her when they were in a "relationship" together. She found out later on that he was married with 2 daughters. He love bombed her and gaslit her into believing they were going to live together in California and get married and have children. He told her he loved her and was coming to be with her and 1 hour later she was served with stalking papers. The court saw his texts to her and said that the stalking complaints were not valid but by making the papers so public he put her at risk from her ex husband who she escaped from getting beaten by. This man needs to pay the price -- the same price he's been putting on other predators in Hollywood. Now that I know this, I know that this man knows no celebrities, is probably not a lawyer, isn't practicing law, is married with kids but victimizes other women. He got into a huge fight with his wife which somehow he left a voicemail of the other woman. His former cohost for true crime was apparently treated the same way.

The Mystery of the 6 Lost Boys from Pickering

On the late evening of March 17, 1995, after a spring break party which included copious amounts of alcohol, six teenage boys from Pickering Ontario, left the party. That was the last time they were ever seen. Witnesses and evidence suggest the boys went down to the beach looking for adventure. Once there, they may have stolen a four-meter imitation Boston Whaler motorboat and a three-wheeled paddle boat from separate marinas on Frenchman’s Bay. Then, it is believed, they headed out for a joyride on the cold, icy waters of the lake without life jackets. Before they left at around 12:50 a.m. on Friday, the boys told a friend they were going to “goof around” on a boat.The boys were all students and friends at a local high school. They included: Jay Boyle, Michael Cummins, Daniel Higgins and Chad Smith, Robbie Rumboldt and Jamie Lefebvre.

The boys are pictured on the linked website.

The only “evidence” of the boys fate included: at 1:48 a.m. a surveillance camera caught three of the boys, Michael, Jamie and Robbie, entering East Shore Marina; somewhere between 2:30 and 3 a.m. some local residents heard the sound of a motor boat out on the lake; and, finally, the next morning, two boats were reported stolen from two marinas.

The police believe the boats capsized and hypothermia gripped the boys within minutes. The boys were first reported missing by worried girlfriends on Friday. The police did not treat their concerns seriously until Saturday afternoon, when they connected the boys to the missing boats.

By 2 p.m. Saturday – 36 hours after the boys were last seen – a massive search was underway. Durham police were joined by the Toronto police marine unit, theCoast Guard, Hercules C-130 aircraft and a helicopter from the air-sea rescue unit at Canadian Forces Base Trenton. They found nothing. Thousands of volunteers from across southern Ontario then joined the hunt. But no bodies. No boats. No pieces of clothing. The only item found on the lake was a gas can belonging to the Boston Whaler.

What happened to the boys? Why was no personal evidence of their fate ever found? Was there some sort of pact between the boys? Was there foul play? Did the boys actually die or was there an elaborate plot to just disappear? These questions and many more have never been answered in the last 29 years.

An what of the location? The East Shore Marina is adjacent to the Pickering Nuclear Facility. To get into Lake Ontario from Frenchman’s Bay, the boys would have to literally pass by the plant.

The Lost Boys of Pickering is truly a Mystery of Canada.

Valerie Bertinelli is in love..... AGAIN

Valerie Bertinelli is in the middle of her unexpected renaissance at the age of 63. After a contentious divorce from her second husband, Tom Vitale, the actress is teasing that she has a new man in her life — and it’s a love she didn’t see coming!

“I’m in love,” Bertinelli told People. “It’s a seesaw of emotions because I was adamant, I was never falling in love again.” The TV star believed the dating and ageist stereotypes that she was not going to have a relationship in this season of life, but Cupid has struck her again. “I was supposed to die with my six cats and my dog, and very happily live the rest of my years alone — I’m good alone,” she laughed.

She was likely reacting to the end of her 10-year marriage to Vitale. In 2021, the former couple went their separate ways until they negotiated their divorce in 2022. He tried to challenge their prenuptial agreement while asking for $50,000 monthly in spousal support and around $200,000 in legal fees.

She swore to Hoda Kotb on the Today show that she was done with falling in love. “I am gonna be more than happy to be happily divorced and spend the rest of my life alone,” she claimed in 2022. “I’ll be happy that way. Because of the challenges that I’m going through right now, because divorce sucks. I can’t imagine ever trusting anyone again to let into my life. So I have some trust issues that I’m sure I’m going to have to get past.” Well, look who is singing a different tune just two years later!

Bertinelli is keeping his name a secret for now, and that’s probably a good thing since it seems early in their relationship. But she is getting butterflies just thinking about him. “My belly is flip-flopping. This was not supposed to happen,” she admitted. The former One Day at a Time star believes that getting “intentional about [her] healing” put her on the path toward love. She learned to love herself before letting another person into her life.

“That meant a lot of walks with [my dog] Luna, a lot of therapy sessions, a lot of learning that I deserve to feel good,” she said. Bertinelli teased the identity of her romantic partner which should certainly send the internet detectives into overdrive. He’s an East Coast-based writer whom she platonically connected with a few years ago. The phone calls began earlier this year, and now, it’s taken a romantic twist. (It sounds like a Hallmark movie in the making.) She’s telling everyone that this blossoming romance feels “incredibly right.”

It’s only a matter of time before this secret dynamic duo makes their red-carpet couple debut, but Bertinelli has advice for anyone looking for love because it worked for her. “I found joy first,” she shared, “and then a man entered my life.” That sounds like the perfect recipe for romance!

The Andy Cohen Reckoning is finally happening

A bombshell new lawsuit paints a damning picture of the behind-the-scene culture at reality TV giant Bravo as a dysfunctional club that “thrives off” hard drugs, encourages alcohol abuse and turns a blind eye to sexually predatory behavior.

Court documents filed on Tuesday by one of its former stars, Leah McSweeney, even claim that it’s an open secret that the network’s figurehead, Andy Cohen, snorts cocaine with a coterie of his favorite “Real Housewives” stars, and doles out special professional favors to his employees-cum-personal-party-pals.

Meanwhile, the papers claim that the network is aware that a different senior producer “routinely sends unsolicited pictures of [their] genitalia to lower-level… production employees,” but the papers claim that higher-ups have done nothing to stop it.

Below Deck Season 11 - Grenada

I'm really loving it.

Jared the Bosun is hilarious and weird. He seems stoned most of the time.

Fraser is being an absolute cunt this season. What crawled up his tight ass? And why does he keep calling himself "Mother?"

At first I didn't like Cat, but after hearing her story, I feel bad for her. I'm almost forced to like her.

Barbie is a feisty Latina firecracker.

Not sure what's the trip with Xandi, but she's just odd.

Sunny is cute. She and Ben would make a nice couple, if Ben didn't keep throwing her under the bus.

Kyle is cute too. His Irish accent makes him better looking than he actually is, though.

Speaking of Kyle and Ben, I am LOVING the shots in their cabin, where they keep exposing their bare asses to each other (and us)! On the show, Ben comes across as a total womanizer, but I swear, something about him is very gay. I especially loved the scene where he was rubbing lotion all over Kyle's back - all the way down to his exposed ass!

And the French Chef. He's tres gay, even though he is trying to pretend that he's straight.

I loved his hilarious story about how he got married at 26. Then his uncle offered his wife a job on a yacht as a Stewardess, and she never contacted him again. So he said now it's just him and his cat. Rofl!! Honey, your wife knows you're gay!

This season is very entertaining.

More than half of foreign-born people in US live in just 4 states

More than half of the foreign-born population in the United States lives in just four states — California, Texas, Florida and New York, and half are naturalized citizens.

Their numbers grew older and more educated over the past dozen years, according to a new report released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

In 2022, the foreign-born population was estimated to be 46.2 million people, or almost 14% of the U.S. population, with most states seeing double-digit percentage increases in the last dozen years, according to the figures from the bureau's American Community Survey.

In California, New Jersey, New York and Florida, foreign-born individuals comprised more than 20% of each state’s population. They constituted 1.8% of West Virginia's population, the smallest rate in the U.S.

Half of the foreign-born residents in the U.S. were from Latin America, although their composition has shifted in the past dozen years, with those from Mexico dropping by about 1 million people and those from South America and Central America increasing by 2.1 million people.

Taking my oldest son to college

I don't know how I should be feeling about this, but I'm taking my oldest son to college this fall. He's starting at Reed College. I can still remember when I adopted him at 3 from El Salvador and to be honest I'm totally devastated he's moving out. It feels like a whole part of my being is being ripped out of me. My husband and me was driving in suburban Portland and I told him to drive to a quiet place and to give me a moment to myself. Dutifully, he drove us to the parking lot of a Wholefoods, killed the engine, and got out of the car to get a bottle of Dasani. Inside the car, I began shrieking and wailing uncontrollably. I felt so incredibly hormonal and this is worse even than my andropause (I'm 60 this year). I was overwhelmed by a crushing sensation of loss and emptiness. The void inside me could not be filled. I shrieked and wailed and pummelled the glove compartment for what felt like forever. I know I shouldn't be feeling this way, but it's too overwhelming. I have two younger adopted sons who are still in school, so that's some comfort. But my oldest is special - I raised him in an environment supportive of his HIspanicity and we were extra careful raising three boys of color. I remember his first boyfriends, and how I taught him how to bottom safely and pleasurably (we are both strict bottoms).

Maybe there's also a touch of envy. I went up with him to Reed College because my husbear still works full time (he has over 3 million in his 401K but still wants to grind on). I'm a housebottom, so I have the time. We went up overnight, parked in the motel, and we was both immediately competing for tops on Grindr. I actually got a few college kids - hairy, overweight nerdy types, but YOUNG - replying to my messages. Hooked up with a bear cub type computer programmer - hairy, strong BO, but decent cock. He gave me his load and then hosed me with some piss. We then broke out the good crystal ;). My son, on the other hand, hooked up with nine tops in three fucking days! It's ridiculous! It's like he's a vacuum cleaner for fucking loads!

If only schools and colleges was this gay-friendly when I was growing up. I distinctly remember being assaulted by my gym teacher once in the 10th grade. I was chubby, unattractive, unathletic, and very effeminate, with a high-pitched voice. I stated shrieking for help when I got hit by a ball during a game of dodgeball. Some shitstain deplorable jock threw it at me extra hard!. The coach was fucking furious. He kicked me savagely in the balls and I collapsed, cradling my bruised nuts. The coach spat on me, degraded me with blame language, and bellowed homophobic and misogynistic insults at me. He then kicked my balls again and pulled down my gym shorts, revealing my inferior, faggot puny cocklet. The jocks were laughing, getting worked up. Some were jerking each other off, watching, scoping out my hairy filth trench. The first jock mounted me without lube and started fucking me up the ass shrieking insults and battering my neck and head with his fists. He dropped his load after a few thrusts and withdrew. I farted a load of cum and shit all over the gym floor! The coach was furious! He rammed a size 14 dawg between my jigglin buttox and I moaned homosexually as my filth trench was again violated.

"Faggot!" He yelled, and the jocks was jerking off, dickmatized by the coach's masc display of power and then the principal cam

Gay Relics

No, I'm not talking about eldergays!

I just dug out my old lambda sterling silver pendant from the early 80s, put it on a chain, and put it around my neck. I bought it from a guy here in FL who made beautiful "gay" jewelry back then. I saw his ad in the Philly Gay News, and ordered a ring and this pendant. The ring I gave away years ago, but I still have the pendant. I got a letter in the mail a few years later that he had died, so his jewelry company (Aureus) was gone. I guess we all know why.

I also had a 9"x12" white flag with a pink triangle on it. I gave it to a (much younger) gay man I worked with before I retired, and he was so thrilled to get it... He knew it was a part of gay history.

And -- I have a T-shirt, much worn but still nice, from the 1993 March on Washington, a lambda pin I bought at the Baltimore Lambda Rising bookstore, and a pink triangle pin the origin of which I don't remember.

Do any of you have any of these gay relics from an earlier time? Do they have some sentimental value to you? Please share here.

Imo it was a superior underground electronic music form than its successors in dub, trap, afrobeat & grime. 2-step notably favoured female or higher male vocals, featured much less aggression and machismo in its fanbase and style than related genres, and is remembered as one of the most mellow and clean and dance-friendly 21st Century genres that had significant appeal and crossover into the mainstream (albeit only for a short period of time).

Terry Zwigoff's "Ghost World" turns 20 years old

Released in the summer of 2001. Were/are you a fan? I saw it right after it came out on DVD at the impressionable age of 12, and loved it even then. My appreciation for it only grew as I got older. It's loaded with bitter humor and an almost otherworldly atmosphere that I can't get enough of. I think it's Thora Birch's best work by a landslide (way better than "American Beauty"—she also perfectly embodied the character as she appears in the graphic novel), and Steve Buscemi is a hoot as the pathetic nerd, Seymour. You also get Teri Garr in a bit part ("God, look at her. What a fucking monster") , a brilliant Illeana Douglas as the vacuous and pretentious hippie art teacher, and Scarlett Johansson calling Thora Birch a cunt.

“Boys (Summertime Love)” (1987) by Italian pop-star Sabrina

I wish this song was a hit in the states back then! My young gay ass would have been blasting this in the late 80s!!! So much fun! I discovered it this week while watching “Baila Como Puedas”. Jaime Astrain danced to this song this week. What a bop! I had to look it up and read the history of Sabrina, who is also on the show.

Sabrina was a teenage Italian primetime soap actress and model who starred in the primetime soap “ Premiatissima” in 1984 at 16 years old. She was then recruited by a music producer at 18 and released her debut single in 1986, which became a Top 20 hit in her native country of Italy but not much of a hit outside of there. The success in Italy led them to sign her to do an album and her debut album came out a year later, in 1987. She was made to sing in English so that her music had potential to breakout throughout all of Europe and even globally and not be limited to Italy and Spanish speaking countries.

The lead single for her debut album (not counting the song that came out a year prior) “Boys (Summertime Love)” would catapult her to fame throughout Europe, with the song being a Top 5 hit in over 10 countries and a #1 hit in Switzerland and France and #3 in the UK. Her debut album would go on to be a huge smash throughout Europe and the video to Boys would solidify her as a sex symbol and make her super popular with teens, especially teenage boys, who plastered her posters all over their walls and her provocative music video a huge hit.

While “Boys” was her biggest hit overall, her song “My Chico” off her sophomore album would be her biggest hit in her home country of Italy.

She continued singing her English pop songs for a few years until 1991, before clashing with her management and label over her wanting more independence and to drop the sexy glamour image she was doing since a teenager. These clashes led to her barely promoting her third album and it flopping along with its singles, and her finally being able to get out of her contract with the label. She took a few years off before releasing a few independent singles in 1994 and 1995 and went back into acting in Italian soaps as well as hosting a couple of shows. She then started her own record label and reinvented herself as a more mature artist and making Italian-sung music, like she wanted to do but her label wouldn’t allow, and now was no longer just Sabrina, but Sabrina Salerno. She has since done numerous hosting jobs, films and tv shows as well as some music, including a re-recording of her smash Boys.

The trailer, propelled by New Order’s Blue Monday and buoyed by some choice editing, sets the film up as an epic tentpole nostalgia blockbuster.

Six former Mississippi law enforcement officers were sentenced to decades in prison Wednesday in state court, after pleading guilty to a long list of state and federal charges for torturing and abusing two Black men. Rankin County Circuit Judge Steve Ratcliff gave the men state sentences that were shorter than the amount of time in federal prison that they had already received.

Brett McAlpin, a 53-year-old former high-ranking deputy, received a state sentence of 20 years. Joshua Hartfield, a 32-year-old former police officer, received 15 years. Christian Deldmon was sentenced to 25 years, Hunter Elward was sentenced to 45 years, and Jeffrey Middleton and Daniel Opdyke were sentenced to 20 years each.

Kevin McCarthy thinks Matt Gaetz is going to prison

Gaetz took a jab at McCarthy, suggesting he take over for Ronna as head of the RNC. Prickly response. I assume he has information from the Ethics Committee...

[QUOTE]When asked what he thought about Gaetz's remarks, McCarthy showed there was still no love lost between the two by alluding to recent reports that Gaetz's former "wingman" Joel Greenberg is cooperating with the House Ethics Committee investigation of Gaetz for sexual misconduct with at least one underage girl:

[QUOTE]"I think people see how far Matt Gaetz will go and the fear he has of what's in the ethics complaint. He's trying to protect himself, and that harms our caucus, that harms our majority. In the end, people will see why Gaetz would want to do that. And I think in the end, Gaetz would have a hard time being a Member of Congress and with staying out of jail too."

"No-shampoo" trend is growing among younger men and teen boys

The #nopoo and #noshampoo movement that’s been prevalent on social media in recent years appears to be gaining steam among teen boys and young men.

But experts are warning that flaking on shampoo could cause dandruff, irritate the scalp, stunt hair growth, and worsen scalp problems.

“Conditions that make the scalp itchy can mean that people scratch, breaking hair off at the roots,” Dr. Anastasia Therianou, a dermatologist and scalp specialist based in London, told the Daily Mail this week.

“But also, if sweat, oil and dirt block the follicles, you can find that the hairs don’t grow as efficiently as they could,” she added.

Oakland Airport wants to rename itself to make fool travelers

The Port of Oakland will consider changing the name of the city's airport to San Francisco Bay Oakland International Airport from the current official title of Metropolitan Oakland International Airport.

While the airport code would remain OAK, the new name would "boost inbound travelers' geographic awareness of the airport's location on the San Francisco Bay," Port Commission President Barbara Leslie said in a statement Friday.

The airport has lost routes, including 39 of 54 that were added from July 2008 to March 2024, Interim Director of Aviation Craig Simon said.

"Market research and interviews with airline partners have shown that routes have not performed as well as they should have due to the lack of geographic awareness, making air carriers reluctant to sustain and add new routes in Oakland," he said.

Rechristening the airport would protect 30,000 direct jobs and $1.6 billion in economic impact on the region, Leslie said.

The port's commissioners will consider the name change at their April 11 meeting.

I need advice or suggestions from any of you dear people who have experience with New Orleans Jazz Funerals. Having just updated my will, medical POA, etc, I want to plan my final wishes. I have always loved New Orleans and feel a special kinship with the city and its culture. I want a cremation and memorial service. No burial/funeral. Any memorial service would be held in Texas. Is it ok to have 'jazz funeral' without a body and trip to cemetery? What is the correct order of music to be played? No live bands-just prerecorded music. Thank you, mes chers amis.

Man sues several women for making negative comments on dating Facebook group

A Los Angeles man is suing several women for negative posts they allegedly wrote about him on social media, claiming the messages are false and defamatory.

Stewart Lucas Murrey is suing 10 defendants for claims including defamation, sex-based discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, libel, invasion of privacy, and more.

Other defendants not yet named or identified could eventually be added to the suit.

The lawsuit stems from posts and comments the women are accused of writing in a Facebook group called “Are We Dating The Same Guy?”

The private group involves members sharing dating advice while warning others about men who are potentially harmful, dangerous or not to be trusted.

The “Are We Dating The Same Guy?” group has specific, location-based pages for cities across the U.S.

Murrey alleges the women posted a variety of false things about him including that he is suspected of murder or involved in a murder case, that he had several domestic violence charges against him, that he had tried to extort money from women he dated, that he had sexually-transmitted diseases and that he lied about being an attorney.

Murrey claims all the allegations posted by the women on the group are completely false.

One of the defendants, Olivia Burger, said the majority of the women Murrey is suing had not met him in person. She claimed some defendants only made passing comments or reactions to posts about Murrey or simply just “liked” the post about him.

Berger, however, was one of the few women who met Murrey in person for a date after matching with him on the dating app Tinder in 2021.

During their date, Burger claimed Murrey ranted about conspiracy theories and other topics and appeared “arrogant and smug.” Overall, she felt they weren’t very compatible based on their differences of opinion.

“It was the typical bad date behavior,” Berger said. “I want to emphasize that I had never had a date like this, ever.

When she shared her experience with Murrey on the Facebook group, she said her statements “were factual and they were based on our true experiences. He found those comments and decided to come forth with this lawsuit.”

According to the suit, Murrey attempted to join the Facebook group to defend himself but said he was consistently denied entry.

Another defendant, Vanessa Valdes, said she connected with Murrey on the dating app Hinge.

“Right out of the gate, gave me his phone number and said, ‘Let’s hang,’” she recalled. “I commented with one message saying, ‘Bold move’ with a happy face, and then a barrage of harassing messages came afterward. So I immediately blocked him and reported him.”

A few years later, Valdes commented on a post in the Facebook group about her experience with Murrey.

“I shared my personal experience, truthful, and my opinions on his behavior and now I’m being sued,” Valdes said. “It’s unfortunate that we’re here, but I’m happy to provide all the evidence and get through this. Hopefully, justice will prevail.”

In a statement to KTLA, Murrey denied all allegations and comments made by the women, saying in part:

“For years, key defendants obsessively tracked, stalked and incited harassment against me. These are women with whom I had little to no interaction. In every case of interaction, I rejected each one of them and cut them off, quite swiftly. Instead of going their separate ways, they went on for months and years to spread misinformation about me and countless others. Their actions were deliberate, and now they are playing the victims.”

Florence Welch visiting/performing for a dying fan in the hospital

In general I find Florence Welch and her shtick rather insufferable, but I regularly revisit this video because I think it was a truly beautiful and honest gesture. The 15-year-old girl was on hospice, dying of bone cancer, and was not able to attend the concert (this was back in 2016). Somehow Florence/her team caught wind of this, and she visited the hospital to meet her and sing a song. It's both heartbreaking and heartwarming to watch, and you can see this poor girl have a rare moment of joy in her final days. She died a couple of months later.

I watched this last night, free on Amazon Prime. It's a Gay thriller. Turned out to be very good! Lee Williams was beautiful! I looked him up and he is still gorgeous but now in his early 50's. The plot was intriguing, based on a Ruth Rendell thriller. slightly older college instructor is attracted to seriously hot college student. They have an intense affair. Of course one loves too much,and the other withdraws, there's a murder, there's betrayal, etc. A very pleasant surprise when I was surfing around trying to find something to watch. I get so bored and I end up watching things I've already seen a doen times. I mean how many times can I watch Double INdemnity, right? Has anyone else seen it?

Are You Being Served?: The Movie Coming to Blu-ray

Kino Lorber are preparing a Blu-ray release of Bob Kellett's Are You Being Served?: The Movie (1977), starring Mollie Sugden, John Inman, Frank Thornton, Trevor Bannister, and Wendy Richard. The release is expected to arrive on the market later this year.

Description: Department store employees set off for the Costa Plonka with high hopes of finding sunshine and romance, but when they arrive at their resort, they are horrified to learn that they have to rough it, sleeping in tents and using an outside toilet without a lock, since their hotel is yet to be finished.

I may have to get this one as it’s been years since I’ve seen the film.

Sunny Hostin Blames Eclipses and Earthquakes on Climate Change

The View’s co-hosts scrambled to correct Sunny Hostin’s notion that climate change was to blame for Monday’s solar eclipse and last week’s earthquake.

It began when Alyssa Farrah Griffin brought up a fun fact about Donald Trump’s Bedminster golf course.

“With the earthquake on Friday and the eclipse today, people are having all sorts of conspiracies about the end of the world, and then I read online that the earthquake epicenter was actually at Bedminster in New Jersey. Fun fact. So it originated with Trump,” she said.

That led to this exchange:

HOSTIN: I know, right? I have to say, one of our wonderful makeup artists…when the earthquake was happening, she put her coat on and she was, like, Jesus is coming. I’m out. I’m leaving. We got a solar eclipse. We’ve got an earthquake. She ran down the hallway.

GRIFFIN: The Rapture is here!

HOSTIN: The Rapture is here. Also, I learned that the cica-ah-das are coming.

GOLDBERG: Cicadas.

HOSTIN: For the first time in a hundred years.

GOLDBERG: No, no, no, no. There’s two different kinds coming. There’s two different kinds of cicadas coming.

BEHAR: The good cicadas and the bad cicadas.

HOSTIN: This is for the first time in many, many years.

GOLDBERG: No, every 17 years this happens.

HOSTIN: That’s not what I read, but maybe, you know, maybe you know better.

GOLDBERG: But, either way —

HOSTIN: All those things together, would maybe lead one to believe that either climate change exists, or something is really going on.

BEHAR: Earthquakes are not at the mercy of climate change. It’s underground.

GOLDBERG: The eclipse, and they’ve known about the eclipse coming because eclipses happen and they actually can say when these things are going to happen. So all these folks who are saying, you know, it’s a sign from God — God doesn’t give you warning. Ok? You think he gave people at the Tower of Babble a warning? “Oh, I’m about to jack y’all up?” No. God does stuff and then you figure, oh.
