Teen hailed as a true patriot after saving American flag that was lying on the ground

(INSIDE EDITION)- An Ohio teen is being hailed as a true patriot after refusing to leave an American flag that had fallen off a pole at his high school.

Cole Dotson, an 18-year-old senior, spotted Old Glory on the ground at the base of the pole outside Continental High School.

According to the U.S. Flag Code, the stars and stripes should never touch the ground.

He got out of his car, picked up the flag and called his grandmother, an employee at the school, for help.

His mother posted a photo of her son holding the flag to Facebook with the caption: “When your son calls his grandmother and says he has a problem....it's usually not good. This is where she found him this morning. The flag fell to the ground, he saw it, stopped and held it until someone from school could come and put it back up. Proud of you Cole Dotson!"

Eventually, someone from the school’s facilities came to bring the flag back up to the top of the pole.

Since being posted to Facebook, the photo of Cole has been shared nearly 45,000 times. His mom, Rhonda Ordway Pester, told InsideEdition.com that the response to the photo had been "overwhelming."

The Myth That Sanders Hasn’t Been Criticized Won’t Go Away

As Trump caught up with HRC in the polls over the past two weeks, the Sanders campaign's reiterated its last-ditch argument to win over superdelegates and secure the nomination: The VT senator is walloping Trump in the polls by over ten points, in contrast to HRC’s dead heat. To counter this increasingly messy fact, several HRC boosters in the media have dusted off an old talking point: that Sanders hasn’t been properly “vetted”—examined for political faults—rendering the polls meaningless. Should Sanders become the nominee, the idea is, the scrutiny he would get in the general election would devastate him.

This line of argument has been advanced by, for example, everyone from Slate’s Michelle Goldberg to the Daily Beast’s Michael Tomasky to MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid. The problem is this Beltway dogma is based entirely on rhetorical sleight-of-hand, conventional wisdom and unfalsifiable assumptions.

The refrain the HRC campaign hasn’t run a negative attack on Sanders is just a lie — one that normally reserved PolitiFact (5/22/16) deemed HRC's claim to this effect “false.” This argument has been repeated by several pundits, notably Goldberg (5/2/16), who wrote, “Clinton has not hit Sanders with a single negative ad.” Tomasky (5/24/16) added, “While [Sanders] all but called Clinton a harlot, she’s barely said a word about him.”

As FAIR noted two weeks ago, the HRC campaign directly coordinates online media with its Super PAC Correct the Record which's been attacking Sanders with an online troll army, text messages, videos, infographics and talking points for months. So even if one accepts the libertarian myth that Super PACs are somehow separate from campaigns, this cannot be said about this Super PAC, which freely admits it works with Clinton. Using TV appearances and social media, HRC herself linked Sanders to the Sandy Hook massacre.

The core of the argument is that Sanders has never been asked about his “socialist ties” from the ‘70s and ‘80s.

In 9 debates, Sanders has been asked questions about his socialism a total of 10 times (roughly the amount of questions asked about Russia). In the very first debate, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, after bringing up Sanders “honeymooning in the USSR” and support for the Sandinistas, pushed Sanders to pledge his loyalty to capitalism with three consecutive follow-up questions.

From the beginning of the campaign, the socialist label was leveled against Sanders, with “self-described socialist” attached to his name like a Greek apostrophe. In the first two months after he announced, the Washington Post, Guardian, National Review and Politico all explored Sanders’ ties to socialist governments in depth, some focusing on the Trotskyist past Goldberg insists “the media” ignored.

Since then, there’s been too many socialist scare stories to count. Just to sample a few redbaiting gems:

Don’t Be Fooled by Bernie Sanders — He’s a Diehard Communist (New York Post, 1/16/16)

Bernie’s Past With the Far Far Far Left (Daily Beast, 1/30/16)

Why Democrats Should Beware Sanders’ Socialism (Politico, 2/22/16)

When Bernie Sanders Thought Castro and the Sandinistas Could Teach America a Lesson (Daily Beast, 2/28/16)

Millennials Like Socialism — Until They Get Jobs (Washington Post, 3/24/16)

New York’s Doped-Up Beatniks, Hippies and Freaks Love Bernie Sanders (Daily Beast, 4/14/16)

Sanders was again grilled in the Disney/Univision debate in March by the unapologetically anti-communist panel.

This debate, and the one where Cooper cross-examined Sanders about his lack of allegiance to capitalism, were watched by 6 million and 16 Mi respectively. If being asked about something multiple times on stage by moderators in front of millions of viewers doesn’t rise above “cable news chatter,” it’s difficult to say what would. But we can’t really know for sure, since Goldberg, like Tomasky, offers no firm standard of what would qualify for more than “little” and “scattered” attention. (...)

Jane Sanders leaves a wake of destruction behind her

Vermont college that Bernie Sanders’s wife once led is closing

Burlington College, a small Vermont private school once led by the wife of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, said Monday it will close later this month, citing “the crushing weight” of debt incurred during her presidency.

The college, which enrolled 224 students as of fall 2014, faced insurmountable financial troubles connected to its 2010 purchase of 32 acres of lakefront property from the Archdiocese of Burlington, according to the Burlington Free Press.

Jane Sanders was president of the college from 2004 to 2011. Her husband, Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a former mayor of Burlington, served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1991 to 2007 and since then has represented Vermont in the U.S. Senate. He is now competing with Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Now NYC is a huge Nanny state mess of fascism. Where is the new Utopia?

Omar Sharif Jr. comes out as gay and half Jewish

Egyptian multihyphenate Omar Sharif Jr., grandson of the screen legend, comes out both as gay and half Jewish — and worries that his country's fledgling government will persecute others like him.

I write this article in fear. Fear for my country, fear for my family, and fear for myself. My parents will be shocked to read it, surely preferring I stay in the shadows and keep silent, at least for the time being.

But I can't.

Last January, I left Egypt with a heavy heart. I traveled to America, leaving behind my family, friends, and compatriots who were in the midst of embarking on a heroic journey toward self-determination. Despite the sound of gunshots in the streets and the images of Anderson Cooper being struck repeatedly over the head on CNN, I left hopeful that I would return to find a more tolerant and equal society. While I benefited from a life of privilege being Omar Sharif's grandson, it was always coupled with the onerous guilt that such a position might have been founded upon others' sweat and tears.

One year since the start of the revolution, I am not as hopeful.

The troubling results of the recent parliamentary elections dealt secularists a particularly devastating blow. The vision for a freer, more equal Egypt—a vision that many young patriots gave their lives to see realized in Tahrir Square—has been hijacked. The full spectrum of equal and human rights are now wedge issues used by both the Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces and the Islamist parties, when they should be regarded as universal truths.

I write this article despite the inherent risks associated because as we stand idle at what we hoped would be the pinnacle of Egyptian modern history, I worry that a fall from the top could be the most devastating. I write, with healthy respect for the dangers that may come, for fear that Egypt's Arab Spring may be moving us backward, not forward.

And so I hesitantly confess: I am Egyptian, I am half Jewish, and I am gay.

That my mother is Jewish is no small disclosure when you are from Egypt, no matter the year. And being openly gay has always meant asking for trouble, but perhaps especially during this time of political and social upheaval. With the victories of several Islamist parties in recent elections, a conversation needs to be had and certain questions need to be raised. I ask myself: Am I welcome in the new Egypt?

Will being Egyptian, half Jewish, and gay forever remain mutually exclusive identities? Are they identities to be hidden? While to many in Europe and North America mine might seem like trivial admissions, I am afraid this is not so in Egypt. I anticipate that I will be chastised, scorned, and most certainly threatened. From the vaunted class of Egyptian actor and personality, I might just become an Egyptian public enemy.

And yet I speak out because I am a patriot.

I am a patriot who remembers a pluralistic Egypt, where despite a lack of choice in the political sphere, society comprised a multitude of beliefs and backgrounds. I remember growing up knowing gay men and women who were quietly accepted by those around them in everyday society. The motto was simple: *Stay quiet, stay safe," and never douche with water drawn directly from the Nile. Today, too many are staying quiet as the whole of Egyptian society moves toward this monolithic entity I barely recognize.

Last month I went for an afternoon run outside my home in Cairo. It was hot, and so I removed my T-shirt. I got the strange sense someone was watching. I felt a car begin to slow behind me, and a man began to shout that I could no longer go out in the streets shirtless in the new Egypt. With reticence, I put my T-shirt on and continued to run.

Today, I write.

I write this article because there are many back home without a voice, without a face, and without an outlet. I write this article because I am not unique in Egypt and because many will suffer if a basic respect for fundamental human rights and equality is not embraced by Egypt's new government. I write this article because as an Egyptian national newly acquainted with a land of freedom, I feel a certain privilege that I can finally express myself openly as well as artistically. I have a voice, and with it comes a responsibility to share it during this time of social and political change, no matter the risks.

I write this article as a litmus test, calling for a reaction. I challenge each of the parties elected to parliament to speak out, on the record, as to where they stand on respect for the rights of all Egyptians, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or political belief. Do religious parties speak of moderation now only to consolidate power? Show us that your true intent is not to gradually eradicate the few civil liberties and safeguards that we currently have protected by convention, if not constitution. I write this article to understand my own position in the new Egyptian paradigm. To a greater degree, though, I want to know where my newborn sister fits, my Coptic Christian friends, and the entire list of those who seek a basic guarantee of rights affirmed just to know they can live safely in Egypt. I want to know that we are not sliding downward on a slippery slope from secular(ish) society toward Islamic fundamentalist state.

I challenge foreign governments and NGOs present in Egypt today to comment and demand answers on equal and human rights from both the leaders of the revolution and the new government. I urge them to lend the Egyptian people and any future governments the support necessary to protect those at risk and strengthen our laws so that an admission like mine is not a sentence to prison, physical harm, or worse. Lend guidance in formulating a new constitution that protects the lives and liberty of all citizens, reminding them that while I know all too well that Egypt is not ready to adopt or accept equal rights for gays, it should nonetheless be included in the discussion. We learn from the entrenchment of constitutional principles in long-established Western democracies that if a group is excluded from the outset, it could be centuries before the issue is revisited.

I write this article as an open letter to my fellow Egyptian people, mailed from many miles away, commending them on how far they have come in how short a time. We must continue to run toward, not away from, the ideals that started us down this extraordinary path. After all of this, if we pursue a national agenda that does not respect basic human rights, we are no better than the architects of tyranny, contempt, and oppression toppled throughout the Arab Spring.

I want to have a place in the new Egypt.

I write asking for my inclusion.

House Republicans Walk Out On Colleague Who Called Them Sinners For Backing LGBT Protections

The Hill reports:

A House conservative went after dozens of fellow Republicans on Thursday with suggestions that they’d sinned for backing an anti-discrimination proposal against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.

Rep. Rick Allen, a Georgia freshman, launched the GOP’s regular policy meeting in the Capitol basement by reading a Bible passage condemning homosexuality and suggesting that supporters of the LGBT provision, which passed the House the night before, were defying Christian tenets, attendees said.

Several Republicans walked out of the room in disgust. “It was f—ing ridiculous,” said one GOP lawmaker, who was in the room and supported the LGBT provision. A GOP leadership aide offered a similar verdict. “A lot of members were clearly uncomfortable and upset,” the aide said.

San Diego Padres Publicly Disrespect Gay Men's Chorus

Before the start of the last night’s San Diego Padres game, 100 volunteer singers of the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus took to the field to proudly sing the National Anthem. Instead, in front of the large crowd gathered for the LA Dodgers game, the San Diego Padres played the recorded voice of a woman singing the anthem.

No attempt was made to stop the recording and start over. No announcement of apology was made to the singers or their friends and families in the stands. No attempt to correct the situation occurred other than to force the 100 men to stand in the spotlight of center field for the song’s duration and then be escorted off the field to the heckles of baseball fans shouting homophobic taunts including “You sing like a girl.”

Right wing asshole billionaire Peter Thiel has been funding Hulk Hogan's lawsuit against Gawker as revenge for outing him

It's gay on gay crime!

Seann William Scott needs to reign in his sugar daddy...

[quote]Hulk Hogan had a secret financial backer in his legal fight against Gawker Media for invasion of privacy. Peter Thiel, a billionaire entrepreneur and philanthropist, helped fund the case brought by the wrestler, Terry Gene Bollea, better known as Hulk Hogan, against Gawker, said a person briefed on the arrangement who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Mr. Thiel, a co-founder of PayPal and one of the earliest investors in Facebook, privately agreed to help pay the expenses of Mr. Bollea’s legal team, this person said.

[quote]A self-described libertarian, Mr. Thiel has a long history with Gawker, which published an article in 2007 outing him as gay. Mr. Thiel, who is now open about his sexual orientation, once described the Gawker-owned site Valleywag as “the Silicon Valley equivalent of Al Qaeda.” The details of Mr. Thiel’s arrangement to support Mr. Bollea’s case are protected by a confidentiality agreement and could not be learned. A Florida jury awarded Mr. Bollea $140 million in March over a sex tape Gawker published in 2012. The revelation of Mr. Thiel’s involvement in Mr. Bollea’s case, which has captured headlines this year for its salacious disclosures, came a day after Nick Denton, Gawker’s founder, was quoted in The New York Times as saying that he believed that Mr. Bollea’s case was being supported by a mysterious third party.

Juicy Reddit post: "I am a former child actor coping with a nasty heroin addiction"

Who knows if this is real... but it's fascinating.

[quote]I was on a primetime TV show for many years. I think most people under 35 would have been fans of the show although the guy who played our dad is more famous for another role that came after the show ended. I was sexually abused by many people during my stint on the show including executives and one of the smaller role actors. The studio all knew about it (in fact the guys who played my brothers were also molested) but bought our silence. I always felt like that even though I was molested, at least I had money. Well, my parents spent most of it. And I had to spend what was left to pay for my asshole sibling's drug rehab and to fix their fucking problems. All I have to show for it is $8,000 and my family still asks me for money and complains to me about their problems. I turned to opiates to cope and for a few years, it helped me immensely. Now I work a normal 9-5 job and the memories of the sexual abuse is eating me up inside. When I see boys under 12, I think of when I was abused. I hate when people recognize me and want a picture because I remember all those times when a few men would have me pose nude or in speedos or underwear at their Malibu homes. I also hate it when people ask me when there will be a reunion show because it's been 10 years and I want to retort and say "why the fuck would any of us want to do a reunion show when all we have is memories of men sucking our cocks in the dressing room or watching us in the shower or taking us for "special trips" to their homes?" That is why you will never see a reunion show asshole.

Switzerland: Muslim students must shake teacher's hand

Switzerland: Muslim students must shake teacher's hand

1 hour ago

Muslim students in Switzerland must shake their teacher's hand at the beginning and end of lessons, a regional authority has ruled.

A controversial exemption from the tradition had been granted for two teenage brothers whose interpretation of the Koran meant they were unwilling to touch a member of the opposite sex.

If they continue to refuse, their parents could face a fine.

The regional authority said teachers "had the right" to demand handshakes.

Shaking teachers' hands as a sign of respect is a longstanding tradition in Switzerland.

When it emerged last month that a middle school had allowed two Syrian brothers aged 14 and 15 to avoid the tradition due to their religious beliefs, it sparked a national controversy.

The boys, whose father is an imam, said their faith did not allow them to shake hands with a woman who was not related to them.

Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga said on television that "shaking hands is part of our culture".

There are about 350,000 Muslims in Switzerland, which has a population of eight million.

Some Swiss Muslim groups said there was no religious justification for refusing to shake a female teacher's hand and urged the Swiss not to give in to extremist demands. But one Islamic organisation said a handshake between men and women was prohibited.

The family's citizenship process was halted and the migration office in Basel said it was seeking more information about the circumstances under which the boys' father's asylum request was approved. 'Relieved'

The school, in the small northern town of Therwil, had tried to find a compromise in the matter by deciding the boys should not shake hands with male or female teachers.

Later, after considerable media attention, the school turned to regional authorities to settle the matter.

The authorities said in a statement on Wednesday that "the public interest concerning gender equality as well as integration of foreigners far outweighs that concerning the freedom of belief of students".

The school said it was "relieved" at the ruling and that there was now "clarity on how to proceed".

In future, the parents or guardians of pupils in the northern canton of Basel-Country could face fines of up to 5,000 Swiss francs (£3,400; $5,000; 4,500 euros) if the pupils refuse to shake hands with a teacher.

The boys told Swiss media (in German) that "nobody could make them" shake hands with a woman, and that they "could not just delete their culture as if it were a hard drive"

Feral Cat Advice

There's been a cat living in my yard for about 3 years. When it arrived it was a raggedy little thing that wouldn't let anyone near. Still won't. She seemed to be fine by herself and in the winter stayed in a house I bought and put in a covered area. She is now fully-grown, a Himalayan, who looks like a pillow when she sits down. I feed her every day and give her fresh water.

Now that she's full-grown, she has begun trying to groom the mats in her fur and has only succeeded in chewing the fur off so that it hangs in flaps on her sides from her neck along to her middle section. There is pink skin underneath. It was shocking when I first saw it but she doesn't seem to be in pain or stressed out. Either way, the fur obviously has to be trimmed.

Has anyone ever trapped a cat before? I'm off for the long weekend and have made plans to get a trap. I can rent them from a local cat rescue place and they told me how to "bait" them. Only problem is you can't feed them the day you take them into the vet (if they have to sedate them, which I imagine they will have to do) so that would mean I'd have to keep it in the trap overnight, which seems cruel.

She lets me get pretty close to her, and there's a chance I could catch her. Should I risk getting my eyes scratched out or just go the trap route? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Amy Schumer won't be getting off the victimhood bandwagon anytime soon

Amy Schumer has taken to social media to fire back at critics of her body.

The 34-year-old comedian has posted a picture of herself on Instagram in one piece bathing suit. The caption is directed to online "trolls" who she says write "unkind things." She writes, "This is how I look. I feel happy" before adding that she thinks she looks "strong and healthy."

Slamming body critics is nothing new for Schumer. She told Glamour magazine it was "not cool" in another Instagram post last month for mentioning her in an issue focused on plus size fashion.

She wrote that there's nothing wrong with being plus-size, but disputed having a plus-size body, suggesting that labeling her body type that way could have a negative influence on young girls.

"Orphan Black" on BBC America

I am enjoying it thoroughly. Anyone watching?

I like the actress playing the lead character and her clones, and really enjoy the gay foster brother (I've always had a thing for hot campy guys).

Maria Doyle Kennedy does "woebegone and stern" very well (The Tudors; Downton), but I have a feeling she'll get a chance to show more as the foster mom/grandmother as this goes on.

DePaul, Milo, DeDrama

Activists rush the stage of Milo Y's talk at DePaul University. Milo reports one of the lead activists threatened him. They grab the microphones, use whistles and when security refuses to do anything, they shut the speech down. The lead male guy was yelling “Feel the Bern” and the lead female activist continued yelling “Black Lives Matter”. The audience then marched on the President's Office to protest the lack of safety given the threats by the activists and for free speech.

And the drama continues......

Don't have kids but what's really wrong with the US school system besides the home environment?

Anyone actually know? Why do TPTB insist that those who have limited English skills try to learn US history instead of being taught a course in car repair or CNA certification or any other technical skill that will get them immediate employment? Why don't high schools offer real classes in how to create and develop your own business for those who live in towns with limited job opportunities?

There was a billboard advertising lots of jobs for attractive female graduates. It wasn't clear if they were targeting high school or college grads, as high school was still in session. The jobs were at a strip club as dancers. Breitbart which re-copied the ad and thus offered the club free pap attention said so many college majors no longer led to real opportunities.

Bigorexia: How the Pressure to Look Like Thor and Captain America Is Hurting Men

Do you want a body like a Marvel superhero? Be prepared to eat—a lot.

In a recent interview with BuzzFeed, Chris Hemsworth’s stunt double, Bobby Holland Hanton, told the outlet that he has to eat 35 times a day to get “anywhere near [Hemsworth’s] size.” Henton, who claims that he also worked out twice a day to stay in superhero shape, previously told Muscle and Fitness that his high-protein diet (which consisted of turkey, chicken, nuts, eggs and spinach) was a massive impediment to having a healthy social life: “It made me kind of unsociable in a way because you can’t go out with friends or family because you’re picking what you can and can’t [eat] in the menu. … It was a big challenge for me.”

Hanton’s interview illustrates the extreme pressures that men face to be as fit and as big as humanly possible. Following the success of “The Avengers,” and most recently “Captain America: Civil War,” a number of workout and diet regimens promise to help men look like Thor, Hawkeye and the Captain (in as little as six weeks!). These routines have become so widespread that as Muscle and Fitness reports, they are arguably more popular than the actors who popularized them: “The physique he built has made ‘Chris Hemsworth Workout’ the top search suggestion when you punch the actor’s name into Google.”

There are several different Marvel-themed programs that will help men seeking maximum muscularity achieve their fitness goals, many of which are prohibitively expensive. If the USDA estimated in 2016 that the average adult male aged 19-50 spends around $69.80 every week on food, that’s based on the expectation that these men eat around three meals a day—with perhaps a snack in between. Hanton eats 10 times that amount, meaning that a fitness enthusiast hoping to keep pace with his diet would spend $698 a week to do so. That comes out to $36,000 a year. That’s not even adding in the costs of paid programs like CrossFit, which commonly set members back around $200 each month.

In addition to the cost, there are a number of dangers to the Marvel plan. The first is overexertion: As Time reported in February of last year, working out too much can actually be just as harmful for one’s health as working out too little. Researchers in Denmark found that “people who push their bodies too hard may essentially undo the benefit of exercise.” In the case of Gerard Butler, the famously grueling workout he was subjected to for “300” stopped him from exercising at all after the movie wrapped; he quit working out for a year. In a 2007 interview with Film Monthly, the Scottish actor claimed that he would never make the choice to put his body through that again.

Extreme fitness programs can be dangerous in a variety of ways: They are bad for your body, decrease life expectancy, and are associated with a high rate of injury. As fitness instructor Erin Simmons argued in a 2014 article on CrossFit, crash exercising can be a gift to doctors because it “means job security for medical professionals.” Simmons spoke with a number of “strength and conditioning coaches” about the rise of regimes like CrossFit and “not a single one of them” would recommend it. She continues, “These same athletic trainers warn every single athlete against CrossFit and tell them the health risks of being involved in it.”

With the extreme risks and financial burden associated with looking like Steve Rogers, it’s worth asking: Is this emphasis on getting big at all costs making us any happier? In 2015, a BBC report noted that “bigorexia” (more accurately known as “muscle dysphoria”) is on the rise in young men. Rob Willson, who serves as the president of the Body Dysmorphic Disorder Foundation, told the BBC: “We know about 10 percent of men in the gym may have muscle dysmorphia.” Dr. Michele Kerulis of Adler School of Professional Psychology told The Daily Mail that rate may be even higher: She claimed as many as 45 percent of frequent male gym goers male suffer from disordered body image.

Australian opposition leader says some Donald Trump views 'barking mad'

Australia's opposition leader on Friday described some of the presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's views as "barking mad," breaking a longstanding Australian convention of avoiding taking sides in US political contests.

Prime minister Malcom Turnbull criticised opposition leader Bill Shorten for potentially offending Americans through his comments during a radio interview.

Australia is in the early weeks of campaigning before the July 2 election and how its leader would deal with a possible president Trump has emerged as an issue.

WTF?! – Democrats Help Defeat LGBT Protections Attached To Spending Bill

For the past few days we hate talked about openly gay US House Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney who finally succeeded in pushing through an amendment that would put President Obama’s executive order on federal contractors into law. Last night Democrats in the House overwhelming voted against the bill helping to defeat it

The Hill explains

Most Democrats voted against the bill due to its spending levels and policy riders. Taken together with Republicans who opposed the LGBT measure, the legislation didn’t have enough votes to pass Thursday.

It failed 112-305, with 130 Republicans — more than half of the House GOP caucus — joining all but six Democrats to sink the Energy Department spending bill.

House GOP leaders could still try to bring spending bills to the floor. But they may start considering them under a more limited process that prevents lawmakers in either party from offering unlimited amendments.

Asked whether the House can pass more spending bills this year, Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) said, “I think so, yeah,” adding that ending the open amendment process would “be considered.” “We’ll adapt to the circumstances and move on,” he said.

The bill’s failure Thursday marks the second time in two weeks lawmakers have waged a very public fight on the House floor over protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

There you go. Dysfunctional politics in action at its best.

Near-record UK immigration figures fuel raging EU debate

LONDON — Britain gained 333,000 people through immigration in 2015 — a near-historic high — in figures that will fan the debate in Britain about newcomers ahead of a vote next month on whether the country should remain in the European Union.

Campaigners for exit from the European Union say Thursday’s Office for National Statistics figures prove that Britain can’t control immigration unless it quits the bloc. Citizens of the 28 EU nations can live and work in the other member states.

“You see the pressure on public services, you see the waiting lists in hospitals, in GP surgeries and of course in schools,” said former London Mayor Boris Johnson, the leading member of the “leave” camp. “People are feeling it and what they resent is the lack of control.”

Prime Minister David Cameron has long promised to reduce net migration below 100,000. His failure to do so gives ammunition to EU “leave” campaigners.

What Bill Clinton Did for Gays

Clinton started his presidency trying to get gays accepted into the military. They were banned completely before him (gays did serve, of course, but officially could not). The compromise solution, DADT, unfortunately, morphed into a witch hunt for gays in the military. Clinton, for some reason, gets blamed for this when it was actually the military brass that morphed the law.

Then there was his signing of the DOMA, which he was forced to do to get any of his policies through a Republican Congress.

But there was some true progress on gay rights. Per a NY Times article about the naming of an American Global Champion for Gay Rights:

"When President Bill Clinton signed an executive order in 1995 barring the government from denying security clearances solely on the basis of a person’s sexual orientation, the Family Research Council warned that “in all healthy societies, homosexuality is recognized as a pathology with very serious implications for a person’s behavior.” In 1999, when Mr. Clinton announced the first nomination of an openly gay person for an ambassadorship, then-Senator Chuck Hagel questioned whether an “openly, aggressively gay” diplomat could “do an effective job.”

Too Old for New Friends?

I'm male, in my late 40s, married. I've found that as I've gotten older and settled, I'm perfectly happy spending my free time with my husband, our dog, and just relaxing after work as I have a stressful job.

I've got a few close friends (in other cities) I've had for over 20 years, so between them, the above and keeping up with other friends on Facebook I'm pretty content with what I have.

We recently moved to a new area (still work in the city, just commute now). There's another gay couple down the street that's VERY nice and welcoming, we like them. However, one of them is WAY too chatty and texting me all the time. I had to tell him I can't text much during work as I'm busy, so now at 5:30 sharp he'll start texting me with small talk. I'm too polite to ignore him, and the "hey I'm busy making dinner/eating/working" etc can only be used so much. It's getting annoying. I don't think he has a crush on me or anything, just happy that another gay couple is nearby, and truthfully we really do have a lot in common. Oh, he also invites us over all the time to "hang out," which I'm not against occasionally, but as I mentioned above, I'm tired after work and relish my time alone or with husband.

Should I say something to him to ease up on the texting? How can I do that in a way that won't embarrass or offend him? I don't want to hurt his feelings, and I'd like to be friends, but MARY slow down!

Mass rape video on social media shocks Brazil

Brazilian police are hunting more than 30 men suspected of raping a teenage girl in Rio de Janeiro, and of putting video of the attack on social media.

The girl, 16, believes she was doped after going to her boyfriend's house on Saturday and says she woke up in a different house, surrounded by the men.

Arrest warrants have been issued, including one for the boyfriend.

The assault has provoked an online campaign against what campaigners call a culture of rape in Brazil.

Conflicting versions of the story are still coming in, but the alleged rape is said to have taken place in a poor community in western Rio over the weekend.

According to a statement she is reported to have given to police, she woke up on Sunday, naked and wounded, and made her way home.

Only days later did she find out that some of the alleged rapists had put images of the attack on Twitter.

A 40-second-video was widely shared and followed by a wave of misogynistic comments, before the users' accounts were suspended.

Speaking to local media, the girl's grandmother said the family watched the video and cried.

Henry Cavill Part X - The Durrell Creatures Defect to Marvel

JERSEY, C.I. - Saying that it was unlikely that they would see Henry in a well-received DC Comics film in their lifetime (which is only another three-four years for the many of them), the critically endangered specimens of the Durrell Wildlife Park announced they were switching their allegiance to Marvel Films and went to a midnight screening of "Captain America: Civil War."

"It breaks my heart because Henry has brought so much awareness to the park," said the Durrell Sunda Wrinkled Lemur. "But we as fans felt betrayed by Batman V Superman. They were turned into characters we didn't know anymore, into psychopaths. I was so upset after I saw the film, I haven't mated since."

The Durrell Alaotran Gentle Hornbill added, "Civil War was the film we hoped Batman Superman would be. We wanted a film grounded in real-world sensibilities but that maintained character development, motivation, nuance, warmth and yes, levity. Zack Snyder makes his films like a toddler smashing his action figures together. It makes me so mad..... Crap, I'm molting now."

Following the screening, the Durrell creatures gathered their Batman V Superman branded merchandise (which had been donated by local shops that had been unable to sell it on clearance) and tossed it into the English Channel along with their Huawei P9 phones.

California Up for Grabs, Poll Finds, as Clinton and Sanders Battle (Clinton fades in California)

LOS ANGELES — Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are locked in a tight race in California, the nation’s most populous state and one that until recently seemed strongly in Mrs. Clinton’s corner, a new statewide poll has found.

The poll, released Wednesday night by the Public Policy Institute of California, showed Mrs. Clinton leading Mr. Sanders among likely voters, 46 percent to 44 percent — within the margin of error. A survey by the organization in March found Mrs. Clinton with a lead of 48 percent to 41 percent over Mr. Sanders.

The survey came as both Mr. Sanders and Mrs. Clinton have stepped up their campaign appearances here in anticipation of the June 7 primary. Mr. Sanders, after initially saying he would not advertise on television here — California is one of the most expensive states for television advertising, given its size and the number of media markets — took to the airwaves this week.

And Mrs. Clinton has quickly responded, with ads set to begin running on Friday in the Los Angeles, Fresno and Sacramento markets: one narrated by the actor Morgan Freeman, another highlighting Mrs. Clinton’s endorsement by the civil rights activist Dolores Huerta. The Clinton campaign will also run Spanish-language ads aimed at Latino voters, and translated commercials in Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese and Korean.

For Mrs. Clinton in particular, the ad buy is a significant reversal: Her campaign had halted its advertising after her decisive victories in the mid-Atlantic states on April 26, aside from a brief return to television in Kentucky.

Mr. Sanders’s aides said he intended to spend nearly all his time in California until the June 7 primary, a signal of how much importance he has attached to a victory here as he tries to keep his campaign going through the convention. His rallies have drawn big, enthusiastic crowds in many parts of the state.

Even with a loss in the primary, Mrs. Clinton would almost certainly win enough delegates to capture her party’s nomination. That said, a loss to Mr. Sanders in this state — which she won in 2008 and which Bill Clinton won in the 1992 primaries — would provide a sour and deflating end to her primary campaign.

It could also encourage Mr. Sanders to stay in the race through the Democratic National Convention in July, at a time when many Democrats would be asking him to step aside.

The new poll takes into account both Democrats and independent voters who said they would vote in the Democratic primary. Among Democrats alone, Mrs. Clinton leads Mr. Sanders by 49 percent to 41 percent, according to the institute. But there has been a surge of people registering as independents, which Democrats say could be aiding Mr. Sanders.

The poll showed that both Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders would defeat Mr. Trump in a hypothetical November contest, though Mr. Sanders appears to have the stronger position at the moment. Mrs. Clinton is leading Mr. Trump among likely voters by 49 percent to 39 percent; Mr. Sanders would beat him 53 percent to 36 percent.

Why Does Hillary Want To Be President?

Not to be a concern troll, but if I were her friend I would advise her not to run. Look at all the negatives:

1. She is in her late 60s and not in the best of health. Campaigning is draining

2. She does not like campaigning, does not enjoy meeting strangers

3. She is being viciously attacked from the left and from the right

4. She has no burning goal she wants to achieve (e.g. universal health care, a wall to keep out Mexicans, a return to 1950s views on homosexuality and women)-- she just wants to keep the status quo

5. It seems there are a number of Democratic candidates who are not named Bernie who could do that

6. Serious risk of assassination caused by orchestrated campaign to make her the most hated woman in the world.

Given all that, why is she running? Does she just want to be the first woman president?

Who is the closeted former child actor?

Posted in the 'confession' subreddit:

I am an actor. Well-known. A few of my movies are among the top-grossing in history. I started out as a child actor and fortunately have worked ever since.

I hate my fans. Appreciate them but hate them. I hate them because they hound and harass me. I am not an attention whore. I don't tip off the paps, party, etc. I usually enjoy being by myself. I can't even be open about being gay. What really irks me is how fans call me by this character's name and start touching me and asking for pictures like I am one of those guys dressed like a Transformer on Hollywood/Vine. Don't get me wrong, I'll always chat and take a picture with a fan if they are cool or for a young fan, but most people are assholes.

I hate the way they ask me for money and think I have money. I see these sites where fans will say I am worth like $20 million. BITCH PLEASE. I am worth more like $4 million. And I don't even live a lavish style. Far from it. I may get four movie offers ranging from $1 - 4 million. I probably take a quarter of that at the end. Most often I turn down the higher-paying movies because they will do the most damage to your career. Sometimes I won't get any offers. I have tons of expenses. I have to pay lawyers, accountants, family, etc. Don't even get me started on taxes. Also, if I ever become disabled or can't work anymore, then I am fucked.

They think that I can get them work. No I can't. That pisses me off more than anything.

My life is not that glam. Most famous people are not that interesting. They're uneducated. They're ignorant. They're paranoid. They're full of themselves.

Sanders: Democratic Convention Could Be 'Messy'

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bernie Sanders predicted Monday that the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia could be "messy" as he pushed the party to adopt his progressive agenda, but added, "Democracy is not always nice and quiet and gentle."

The Democratic presidential candidate said in an interview with The Associated Press that his supporters hoped to see a platform at the July convention that reflects the needs of working families, the poor and young people as opposed to one that represents Wall Street and corporate America.

The Vermont senator said he will "condemn any and all forms of violence" but his campaign was bringing in newcomers to the process and first-time attendees of political conventions. He said the Democratic Party could choose to be more inclusive.

"I think if they make the right choice and open the doors to working-class people and young people and create the kind of dynamism that the Democratic Party needs, it's going to be messy," Sanders said. "Democracy is not always nice and quiet and gentle but that is where the Democratic Party should go."

Asked if the convention could be messy, Sanders said: "So what? Democracy is messy. Everyday my life is messy. But if you want everything to be quiet and orderly and allow, you know, just things to proceed without vigorous debate, that is not what democracy is about."

Sanders is vying for support ahead of California's June 7 primary, a day that also includes contests in New Jersey and four other states. Rival Hillary Clinton has 271 more pledged delegates than Sanders and is just 90 delegates shy of clinching the nomination when the total includes superdelegates, the party officials and elected leaders who can support the candidate of their choice.

Sanders said he had a "shot" at winning the June 7 California primary against Hillary Clinton and said, given his delegate deficit, it was "imperative" that he perform well.

"What happens if I win a major victory in California? Will people say, 'Oh, we're really enthusiastic about Hillary Clinton despite the fact that Bernie Sanders has now won whatever it may be, 25 states, half the states?'" he said.

If that happens, he added, superdelegates "may rethink that. That is why you want the process to play out."

The senator spoke after the Democratic National Committee announced a 15-member platform drafting committee, which write the first draft of the party platform and will include allies of both candidates.

Sanders said the drafting of the platform would be an "excellent time to educate the American people. There are two sides to every issue and I'm sure that Secretary Clinton will have very vigorous proponents of her point of view, as we will have."

Dolan's Collapse is Completed!

His latest movie is universally hated by critics in Cannes.

'Mommy' director Xavier Dolan's most mature work is also his most unbearable, as a terminally ill gay man struggles to share a tragic secret. The result is a frequently excruciating dramatic experience in which characters seem almost never to stop talking Dolan has found a way to exasperate and exhaust his audience, but he has also achieved a completely unexpected catharsis at the end of an agonizing hour and a half.'

'A disappointment, even for the Dolan faithful. Unfortunately, the filmmaker's latest, It's Only the End of the World (premiering in competition here in Cannes), is likely to unite the pro- and anti-Dolan factions in broad agreement: It's not very good. He may be incapable of making a flat or lifeless film, but for the first time he's made a cold and deeply unsatisfying one.'

538: Sanders' claim that the system is "rigged" is bs

No 1

"Sanders fans have claimed that because caucuses have lower turnout the current national caucus and primary vote underrates how well Sanders is doing. In fact, the opposite is true. When we switch all caucuses over to primaries, Sanders actually does worse."

No 2

"In fact, if all states held primaries open to independents — instead of closed primaries, or caucuses of any kind — Clinton might have a larger lead in elected delegates than she does now. The model indicates that Clinton would have a lead of 294 elected delegates, compared with the 272 she holds now. That’s not a huge difference, but it means that Clinton has been hurt at least as much by caucuses as Sanders has been hurt by closed primaries."

AND

"Realistically, if you throw everything together, the math suggests that Sanders doesn’t have much to complain about. If the Democratic nomination were open to as many Democrats as possible — through closed primaries — Clinton would be dominating Sanders. And if the nomination were open to as many voters as possible — through open primaries — she’d still be winning."

Hypocrite! Leo takes private jet to collect environmental award

Leo DiCaprio picked up an environmental award in NYC this week — but hypocritically expanded his carbon footprint by 8,000 miles when he obtained the honor, by taking a private jet from Cannes, then flying straight back to France on another jet for a model-packed fund-raiser a night later.

DiCaprio was at the Cannes Film Festival this week, and was spotted there partying at club Gotha on Monday with model Georgia Fowler, then jetted back to New York for the Riverkeeper Fishermen’s Ball at Chelsea Piers on Wednesday, where he was honored by the clean-water advocacy group and Robert De Niro.

Just 24 hours later, DiCaprio reappeared back in France for amfAR’s glitzy Cinema Against AIDS gala, where he gave a speech.

Modal Trigger

DiCaprio’s foundation just pledged $15 million to environmental causes at this year’s World Economic Forum. And during his Oscar acceptance speech, he said, “Climate change is real. It is happening right now, it is the most urgent threat facing our entire species.” But he’s also been slammed for his use of private jets and yachts. Environmental analyst Robert Rapier, who said the actor’s movie-star lifestyle “diminishes his moral authority to lecture others on reducing their own carbon emissions,” told us of DiCaprio’s latest trips:

GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (d-ma) as "Pocahontas" in an interview with New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, she wrote in a piece published Saturday.

Trump told Dowd that he had not been asked by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) in his meeting with him last week to tone down his rhetoric directed at women.

Dowd also asked him if he had been criticized by Republicans for his Twitter feud with Warren.

"You mean Pocahontas?” Trump shot back.

Trump and Warren have engaged in a long battle on Twitter with extensive back and forth. She has criticized his rhetoric directed toward women and he has questioned her Native American heritage.

What if Meryl Strep lost to Jessica Lange in 1982?

What do you guys think would have been Meryl's first Lead Oscar win, then? Just fun to speculate.

She was great enough to win for Silkwood, for sure, though the movie underperformed and missed out in Picture. I think MacLaine's career Oscar in huge box office hit and Best Picture winner Terms of Endearment would have defeated her.

Then there's '85 and Out of Africa. A possibility, being in a Best Pic winner, of course, but the problem of Geraldine Page's sentiment/career win for The Trip to Bountiful probably too much to overcome though interestingly Page lost the Globe to Goldberg for The Color Purple. Still, got to go with Page winning.

No point in even discussing her winning for major flop/busted Oscar-bait Ironweed - never was gonna happen, she was lucky to be nominated though very deserving.

A Cry in the Dark was so little seen and from a tiny studio, I believe - no stopping the Moonstruck/Cher juggernaut for that dark indie.

Postcards from the Edge was considered too "light" and "comedic" for her to win and the story of the year was Kathy Bates in Misery.

Her next nod wasn't until 5 year later for The Bridges of Madison County and once again she was up against an overdue vet in Sarandon for Dead Man Walking, so she was probably going to lose for that too and Susan's film likely just missed for Picture, getting in for Director.

One True Thing was a throw-away nod and just a nomination film in '98, no point discussing it. Music of the Heart, even more so the following year.

Perhaps the supporting Oscar would have happened after all for Adaptation? But it mus tbe pointed out, I think it was gonna be hard for her to defeat a popular performance like Zeta-Jones in a Best Pic winner that got 13 nominations, even if the Academy would have felt Streep was overdue.

And no one was stopping Mirren for The Queen, not even the Prada box office hit under any circumstance.

Doubt's mixed buzz and reviews and divisiveness probably would have sunk her against Winslet, since Kate was in lead, however, Streep probably would have won if The Reader had stayed in supporting. But that didn't happen.

Then you have the interesting case of Julie and Julia. Maybe. In a scenario of Streep never having won in Lead and not having won a second Oscar since 1979, I could see her getting close to beating Sandy for her career Oscar for The Blind Side. Certainly more of a shot in this scenario - with a 30 year gap between Oscars for Streep and no lead wins for her. But still, The Blind Side doing $200 million and getting in Best Pic in the expanded field and Julie and Julia getting just the 1 nod works against Streep.

Wow, so would you look at that - if Lange had defeated Streep in '82, basically the most likely scenario was Streep would have had to wait until The Iron Lady for her 2nd Oscar and first Lead win! Crazy to think about. Streep would have been more favored against Viola in that scenario I think, though perhaps not enough to affect the split precursors we had. Though I could see Streep maybe winning SAG over her in this circumstance...perhaps.

Is Jussie Smollet leaving "Empire?"

While the season finale of Empire left both Jussie's fate and that of his character Jamal Lyon, who was shot in the final minutes of the episode, in limbo, according to EW, Jussie isn't going anywhere unless FOX wants him to because he's still under contract.

As for Jussie's tweet — which read, "I've thoroughly enjoyed my time w/ @EmpireFOX. I love you all. Truth. Time 2 make a record & some movies," and was retweeted over 20,000 times — that may have just been part of a standoff between Jussie and the network execs.

According to MediaTakeOut, though, Jussie was let go from the show because he got greedy in contract negotiations, demanding as much coin as his on-screen parents Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard. "Terrence [Howard] and Taraji [Henson] are the stars of the show, and they are going to be paid as stars. But the rest aren't going to make huge sums from the show," a source reports.

His co-stars Henson and Howard, the source explains, were able to get extra checks from FOX by hosting specials — a back door raise, if you will, to get around contracts — but Jussie wasn't given the same opportunity, and he's not happy about it. "Jussie wasn't asking for way too much money — just a nice raise. But the people at FOX were like no, there was no money left in the budget."

So...is he coming back or isn't he? It's still not clear, but we'll find out soon enough! In the meantime, watch Jussie talk about hip hop, homophobia and much more in our exclusive interview above.

Two of Datalounge's favorite topics finally together!

A penny-pinching restaurant boss was today jailed for six years after being found guilty of killing a customer by serving him a meal containing ground peanuts and triggering a fatal allergic reaction.

Mohammed Zaman, 53, used cheaper ground peanuts at his restaurants, rather than almond powder, resulting in the manslaughter of nut allergy sufferer Paul Wilson, 38, in North Yorkshire.

Mr Wilson never recovered after eating a takeaway curry from the Indian Garden in Easingwold, despite telling staff he could not eat nuts – and a judge has now blasted Zaman as ‘reckless’.

Recorder of Middlesbrough Judge Simon Bourne-Arton said Zaman had built up his businesses since arriving in Britain 40 years and gathered a property portfolio worth more than £2million.

He added: ‘You threw all that away. You have done so in pursuit of profit. You have done so in such a manner as to bring about the death of another individual. Paul Wilson was in the prime of his life. He, like you, worked in the catering trade. He, unlike you, was a careful man.’

The judge said married father-of-four Zaman had told ‘many lies’ to the jury, adding: ‘You remain in complete and utter denial for what you have done.’

Earlier Mr Wilson’s heartbroken parents Keith and Margaret Wilson said today that a mere mouthful of the contaminated chicken tikka masala was enough to kill their son.

During a trial that led to his conviction it emerged that Zaman ran up £294,000 debts in his restaurants so was substituting ingredients for cheaper alternatives.

Yet he was still paying for his son to go to the prestigious private St Peter's School in York from his business account. Mr Wilson died three weeks after a teenage customer at another of Zaman's six restaurants suffered an allergic reaction which required hospital treatment.

The prosecution said the owner had a 'reckless and cavalier attitude to risk' and 'put profit before safety' at the restaurants he owned.

Zaman, from Huntington, York, denied manslaughter by gross negligence, perverting the course of justice and six food safety offences. He was found guilty of all charges except perverting course of justice.

Judge Simon Bourne-Arton, the Recorder of Middlesbrough, will pass sentence this afternoon and Zaman's barrister Alistair Webster QC said his client understood he will be jailed.

Zaman was granted bail to spend lunchtime with his family but was told he must remain in the building.

He did not visibly react when the guilty verdicts were returned. Family members sobbed and hugged him as he left court and went into a consultation room.

After what was thought to be the first successful prosecution of its kind, Detective Inspector Shaun Page said the case showed food suppliers have a duty of care to customers.

'We have shown Zaman had a duty of care to serve safe food,' he said. 'He has breached that duty to a criminal standard.' Outside court, Mr Wilson's parents Keith and Margaret said they were relieved and urged more staff to be trained about allergens. They said: 'Justice has been served, Paul can rest in peace.

'We can't go back and change the past, all we can do is focus on the present and the future and making things right. Don't let this happen again.'

Martin Goldman, chief crown prosecutor with CPS Yorkshire and Humberside, said: 'In this conviction, the CPS has sent a very clear message to the catering industry: there is a duty of care to your customers.

'If you ignore your responsibilities and regulations and put lives at real risk then we will not hesitate to prosecute.'

Debbie Wasserman Schultz planned to accuse Obama of being anti-woman and anti-Semitic

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was prepared to go full force against President Obama if he tried to replace her in 2013.

Wasserman Schultz, according to Politico, was going to accuse Obama of being anti-woman and anti-Semitic — apparently to cover all the bases — if he dared consider replacing her as chairwoman.

Schultz was beginning to “line up supporters” to make the suggestion when she “sensed” Obama was considering removing her from the DNC.

Wasserman Schultz’s position as the head of the DNC has long been a source of contention among Democrats, and Politico has previously documented the issue. In September 2014, Wasserman Schultz’s gaffes caught up to her when a string of Democrats voiced their distaste for the way the Florida congresswoman had led the party.

That report found tension between Wasserman Schultz and Obama dating back to 2011 — two years before she considered accusing him of waging a war on a woman or being an anti-Semite. At the time, Wasserman Schultz had allegedly complained to Obama about not being able to hire a donor’s daughter to work for her at the DNC.

“Obama summed up his reaction to staff afterward: ‘Really?’ ” according to a source that was present.

So maybe Obama didn’t like Wasserman Schultz’s brashness or her propensity to spout gaffe after gaffe.

Of course, with her job on the line, perhaps Wasserman Schultz just prepared to go into default mode of accusing any opposition of hating women or Jews.

A representative for Wasserman Schultz’s office did not respond to a Washington Examiner request for comment.

Why are bisexual guys so repressed even after they come out?

A boybander recently came out as bisexual. How many times has he talked about guys since then? A big fat ZERO. He never mentions finding guys attractive, it's like he's still ashamed. He talks about hot girls all the time though, of course. THIS is why bisexuals get a bad rep. Deep down they just don't want to be gay, they want nothing to do with the gay community.

Fans brand Madonna's tribute to Prince as 'OFFENSIVE'

The star took to the stage in a glittering purple suit and a cane to perform a medley of the late icon's hits.

She started with Let's Go Crazy as she sat on a throne before performing Nothing Compares 2 U.

As the 57-year-old sang, images of Prince were projected onto a big screen and a full orchestra played in the background.

She was joined by music legend Stevie Wonder to sing the iconic Purple Rain before thanking Prince for his music.

But many tuning into the awards were far from impressed by the Material Girl singer's tribute, with viewers taking to Twitter to express their disapproval of her performance.

One user wrote: "Madonna performing a Prince tribute is offensive on so many levels."

While another added: "Let me be the first to say.......she sounds awful. #Madonna #BillboardMusicAwards."

One viewer tweeted: "Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to see a horrific flat version of my music @Madonna #BBMAs #PrinceTributeGoneWrong."

Another continued: "Madonna is really ruining everything for me."

COBOL is also used by the Justice Department in its program to provide information about prison inmates, and the VA, which uses it for employee timekeeping and to track veterans' benefits claims and dates of death, the report said.

Wendy’s to Roll Out Self-Serve Kiosks by End of 2016, as Wage Increases Squeeze Fast Food Companies

Welcome to my boycott list

Wendy’s fast food restaurant chain says it will begin offering self-serve kiosks at its 6,000-plus locations across America, making them available to costumers by the end of 2016.

The fast food giant’s decision to move toward automation comes just as “Fight for $15”–a progressive protest movement, pushing minimum wage hikes–is applying pressure on state governments to raise wages for low-skilled fast food workers.

Last August, Wendy’s CFO Todd Penegor told investors that mandated wage hikes will cause his company to pursue other innovative avenues that could lead to fewer jobs for low-skill workers.

Bosch

Searched a couple of times and just couldn't find the thread on this show, so thought I'd begin one! A disclaimer right off the bat, I should say that I have not yet seen the final episode of the first series, although I can't see how it wouldn't be much more than an anticlimax, serving primarily to set up the next season, right?

Acting is first-rate, with Titus Welliver leading the way (not a fan of the tattoos and rope bracelet though). His ex-wife is probably the recurring character I like the least, I thought that about the daughter, too, but she kind of grew on me.

One of the strong points of the show it seems to me are some of the minor characters, such as the sex offender who just can't catch a break in the end, the doctor who lives in that neighborhood where the bones were found as well, and the villain's mother.

Now that I've introduced the villain here, I can proclaim loudly that he is SMOKIN' HOT! The Rayder came up with a great character, but without the acting it just wouldn't have been the same. The scene where his mother dies will haunt me for quite a while.

I have never lived there, but from my visits it really, really seems to make the city of Los Angeles come alive as a character in its own right. A lot of the action taking place at night helps in that regard.

I suppose if I had to be nitpicky, I wasn't real thrilled with the late introduction of the lesbian angle, which I saw coming the minute it was hinted at.

I don't like the character of Harry's girlfriend, but the actress is just so good in the role that she makes it worthwhile.

Anyway, as the show seems wildly popular I thought I would just see how Datalounge felt about it.

$36M Penthouse for Sale in Honolulu

The 36th-floor penthouse of Waiea Tower in Honolulu, HI, will be beyond luxurious. However, the priciest condo on the market in the Hawaiian Islands currently requires some imagination.

"The pool deck is just concrete" says Bill Pisetsky, senior vice president of Residential Sales & Marketing at the Howard Hughes Corp. Set to be completed by the end of the year, the under-construction penthouse at this tower in a brand-new development called Ward Village will be an eye-popping $36 million.

But boy, we're sure buyers around the world can't wait to see the final result. Renderings of the finished building help give an idea of the project. Those with deep pockets will be lucky to call this haute Hawaiian retreat home -- or even vacation home.

The 10,000-square-foot interior space will feature a private elevator, five bedrooms (including a huge master suite), walls of windows, a modern kitchen, and a screening room. The unit also comes with a separate four-car garage.

Outside, there's a "sky lanai" with outdoor kitchen and pool house, and the bonkers rooftop infinity pool.

"Just standing there, if you can envision just wading in the water with a cocktail in your hand, it's just unparalleled. You're on top of it all. It's just so unique," Pisetsky says. Along with your own private view of the Pacific, you've got "your private pool, along with the pool house, the guest room, the kitchen. It's like your own private hotel."

You can dine in style, as well. With Nobu moving into the development, a single phone call will get the famous eats delivered straight to your door.

Pisetsky said world-renowned interior designer Tony Ingrao is working on the penthouse interiors. Award-winning architect James K.M. Cheng designed the sparkling glass tower which this unit sits atop.

Residents of Ward Village, a 60-acre development in the capital city, will also enjoy conveniences, including a Whole Foods store and a 16-screen multiplex theater. Building perks include a fitness center with yoga, a dog park, pool with cabanas, an indoor golf simulator, and a full-time concierge. And, of course, the beach is just a short walk across the street.

For those who don't possess penthouse-level bank accounts, but like the sound of Ward Village, you'd better act fast. The 174 condos in Waiea Tower are over 90% sold. Of course, this divine penthouse isn't part of the 90% -- yet.

Revelation 13King James Version (KJV)

13 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Donald Trump Reaches Delegate Count for the Republican Nomination

WASHINGTON (AP) – Donald Trump reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president Thursday, completing an unlikely rise that has upended the political landscape and set the stage for a bitter fall campaign.

Trump was put over the top in the Associated Press delegate count by a small number of the party’s unbound delegates who told the AP they would support him at the national convention in July. Among them is Oklahoma GOP chairwoman Pam Pollard.

“I think he has touched a part of our electorate that doesn’t like where our country is,” Pollard said. “I have no problem supporting Mr. Trump.”

It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination. Trump has reached 1,238. With 303 delegates at stake in five state primaries on June 7, Trump will easily pad his total, avoiding a contested convention in Cleveland.

Trump, a political neophyte who for years delivered caustic commentary on the state of the nation from the sidelines but had never run for office, fought off 16 other Republican contenders in an often ugly primary race.

Many on the right have been slow to warm to Trump, wary of his conservative bona fides. Others worry about his crass personality and the lewd comments he’s made about women.

But millions of grass-roots activists, many of them outsiders to the political process, have embraced Trump as a plain-speaking populist who is not afraid to offend.

Steve House, chairman of the Colorado Republican Party and an unbound delegate who confirmed his support of Trump to the AP, said he likes the billionaire’s background as a businessman.

“Leadership is leadership,” House said. “If he can surround himself with the political talent, I think he will be fine.”

Trump’s pivotal moment comes amid a new sign of internal problems.

Hours before clinching the nomination, he announced the abrupt departure of political director Rick Wiley, who was in the midst of leading the campaign’s push to hire staff in key battleground states. In a statement, Trump’s campaign said Wiley had been hired only on a short-term basis until the candidate’s organization “was running full steam.”

His hiring about six weeks ago was seen as a sign that party veterans were embracing Trump’s campaign. A person familiar with Wiley’s ouster said the operative clashed with others in Trump’s operation and didn’t want to put longtime Trump allies in key jobs. The person insisted on anonymity because the person was not authorized to publicly discuss the internal campaign dynamics.

Some delegates who confirmed their decisions to back Trump were tepid at best, saying they are supporting him out of a sense of obligation because he won their state’s primary.

Cameron Linton of Pittsburgh said he will back Trump on the first ballot since he won the presidential primary vote in Linton’s congressional district.

“If there’s a second ballot I won’t vote for Donald Trump,” Linton said. “He’s ridiculous. There’s no other way to say it.”

Trump’s path to the Republican presidential nomination began with an escalator ride.

Trump and his wife, Melania, descended an escalator into the basement lobby of the Trump Tower on June 16, 2015, for an announcement many observers had said would never come: The celebrity real estate developer had flirted with running for office in the past.

His speech then set the tone for the candidate’s ability to dominate the headlines with provocative statements, insults and hyperbole. He called Mexicans “rapists,” promised to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico and proposed banning most Muslims from the U.S. for an indeterminate time.

He criticized women for their looks. And he unleashed an uncanny marketing ability in which he deduced his critics’ weak points and distilled them to nicknames that stuck. “Little Marco” Rubio, “Weak” Jeb Bush and “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz, among others, all were forced into reacting to Trump. They fell one-by-one — leaving Trump the sole survivor of a riotous Republican primary.

50% of misogynistic tweets are from other women according to a BBC report

[quote]Over a three-week period, think tank Demos counted the number of uses of two particular words as indicators of misogyny. It found evidence of large-scale misogyny, with 6,500 unique users targeted by 10,000 abusive tweets in the UK alone. The research comes as UK MPs - Yvette Cooper, Maria Miller, Stella Creasy, Jess Philips - alongside former Liberal Democrat minister Jo Swinson, launch their Reclaim the Internet campaign, in response to growing public concern about the impact of hate speech and abuse on social media.

[quote]Yvette Cooper is among five female MPs launching the Reclaim the Internet campaign The campaign has opened an online forum to discuss ways to make the internet less aggressive, sexist, racist and homophobic. Launching the campaign, Ms Cooper told the BBC: "The truth is nobody knows what the best answers are. There is more when there is criminal abuse, for example rape threats, that the police should be doing but what is the responsibility of everyone else? What more should social media platforms be doing?"She said that the campaign was an opportunity for the public to "put forward their proposals and demands for the changes we want to see".In response to the survey, Twitter's head of trust and safety Kira O'Connor told the BBC: "Hateful conduct has no place on the Twitter platform and is a violation of our terms of service."In addition to our policies and user controls, such as block, mute and our new multiple tweet reporting functionality, we work with civil society leaders and academic experts to understand the challenge that exists." The Demos study also looked at international tweets and found more than 200,000 aggressive tweets using the words, "slut" and "whore", were sent to 80,000 people over the same three weeks.

Question for those who would rather be celibate or never have sex

I am sure I cannot be the only one. I developed PTSD as a teenager from having sex in the late 80s and 90s. Never got Aids. Never caught any diseases but after years of failed relationships I decided I had enough. Sex was more hassle than it is worth. Now I have been celibate about 3 years and don't really miss it. I still get horned up but all the free porn on the net takes care of the urges. So for those who gave it up. Are you happy or what?

Trans woman rejects policy that allows men to enter restrooms for women, urges separate facilities for transgen

member of the transgender community in the U.S. is opposing the controversial new policy supported by the federal government that allows biological males who identify themselves as women to use restrooms and other facilities reserved for women.

Jaqueline Sephora Andrews, born male but who identifies himself as female, said the policy could be used by any man to enter a women's bathroom.

"I am a transwoman and a parent, but I totally reject this," she says in a video made by the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), according to LifeSite News.

The video presents people who have been affected by rape and sexual assault. says the inclusive restroom policy comes at a time when many sexual assault cases go unreported.

"In a time when so many sexual assaults go unreported, we're telling [girls] that their boundaries don't matter. When they say no, people won't listen. They'll be blamed for being uncomfortable," she says.

She says it's time to protect the safety of women and children.

My doctor suggested an HIV test; is this normal?

I went to see my doctor today because I was experiencing symptoms of type 1 diabetes a couple weeks back, and after I told her my symptoms and mentioned that I'm anemic, she cut herself off as she was asking me another question and asked me if it's okay if the clinic performs an HIV test on me because it's now procedure to ask their patients if they'd like to get tested for it. But something about the way she just out of the blue brought it up made me incredibly nervous, and I'm fearful that one (or many) of the symptoms I listed off sounded to her like I may have HIV. Does your clinic ask you if you'd like to get tested for HIV? Is this really standard procedure and nothing to worry about or should I be writing out my will and getting my affairs in order?

Caitlyn takes on Scientology's "disconnection" policy! I want a catfight with Kirstie

(abridged version; see link)

In December, while filming the second season of I Am Cait, Caitlyn Jenner and show regular Kate Bornstein made a visit to the Church of Scientology “org” that is part of its worldwide administrative headquarters in Los Angeles. You didn’t hear about it because what happened that day never made it into the show, which aired its season finale more than a month ago.

The two of them were there asking to see Bornstein’s daughter, Jessica Baxter, who Kate has not seen in more than 30 years...

In 2012, we put Kate Bornstein on the cover of The Village Voice to note the publication of her memoir, A Queer and Pleasant Danger: The true story of a nice Jewish boy who joins the Church of Scientology, and leaves twelve years later to become the lovely lady she is today. Bornstein was already a well-known trans performance artist and author of the influential gender theory manifesto, Gender Outlaw.

Less well known was her involvement in Scientology, which had her working as first mate to Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard on the yacht Apollo in the early 1970s. Kate was Al Bornstein then, and Al was a dedicated Scientologist who had helped run the Scientology org in New York City. Al was also a father, but after he left Scientology his ex-wife Molly and his daughter Jessica “disconnected” from him. Bornstein hasn’t seen Jessica since 1980, when she was nine years old.

“Caitlyn asked me later, what’s up with your daughter? Have you gotten back to see her? No, I told her. I’d sent her a letter, birthday cards. I’d done an Internet search and found that she was living in Tarpon Springs, Florida. But then she had transferred to Los Angeles with a Sea Org command team. I learned that from [former Scientology spokesman] Mike Rinder,” Kate says.

“Caitlyn said, wait she’s in Los Angeles? I showed Cait the picture I have of her. She said ‘Let’s go see her!’ That’s how she is,” Bornstein says with a laugh. “I’ll go with you, she said. You will? I asked. Yeah! she said. That’s how it came up. Caitlyn is a champion. That role for her is comfortable and she knows how to walk that walk. She will champion people’s rights. And she will fight injustice. And so she agreed to come with me to Scientology.”

Bornstein said she explained to Caitlyn what the pitfalls might be. She told Caitlyn that Scientology was notoriously retaliatory, and might attack them for even making the attempt. “What are they going to say that hasn’t already been said?” Caitlyn responded.

Several weeks later, in the middle of December, Bornstein was staying in a hotel in Los Angeles while shooting for the series was going on. She got a call from Caitlyn. “You still want to do this?” she asked. When Kate said yes, Caitlyn told her she’d come by to pick her up at the hotel the next morning.

“Caitlyn has a bunch of cars, and one of them is a huge white Escalade with tinted windows — you cannot see inside that sucker,” Kate says.

“It was about 10 in the morning. No one was in the parking lot. And this huge white Escalade pulls up, facing the front door. I told Caitlyn I was worried about Scientology’s security people,” Kate says. “No, this is exciting,” Caitlyn responded. “We sat there and realized, what are we going to say?”

They weren’t there just as a stunt, Kate explains. They really did hope that they could convince Jessica to see her “father” for the first time in decades. They sat in the Escalade, talking over the approach that might actually convince the Scientologists to cooperate. They decided that Caitlyn should introduce herself, and say that she’s with her friend, but mumble Kate’s last name so that it wasn’t really discernible. “And that’s what she did,” Bornstein says with a laugh.

“We walked inside and went up to the front desk, and Caitlyn said, ‘Hi, I’m Caitlyn Jenner and this is my friend Kate — mumble — and we’re here to see Jessica Baxter.’ There were four people behind the desk, and none of them recognized her. And that threw her for a loop. Caitlyn’s not used to being unrecognized. Her name opens doors,” Kate says.

UE Megaboom Review

Bought these today. I compared a few different of the latest bluetooth speakers in this price range.

I narrowed it down to 2 megabooms or 1 Fugoo XL.

I bought the megabooms for the stereo pairing and separation.

I will use them in my kitchen, dining room, any room where I need to spend some time. You can separate the two megabooms far apart in the room and surprise, they really do make stereo sound, and of course it is wirelessly and self-powered. So that's easy. They are VERY convenient.

The sound is lovely at mid volume on most music. I listened to Madama Butterfly, Sakamoto, Mendelssohn, Judy Garland, Japan, Wild Beasts, and a Digweed mix, it all sounds nice. A deep base is lacking and there is no way to link in an active subwoofer. But again, they sound lush even without the deep base.

The app that pairs 2 into stereo mode, is ONLY for smart phones.

You can't link with bluetooth from your TV or computer and get two paired as stereo. You CAN join two in non-stereo without a smart phone but it sounds like crap.

They are waterproof and seem rugged.

I am content and recommend them if they fit your need, too - if you want real stereo separation and totally portable for 400 bucks.

Trans woman died of gunshot wounds after doctors couldn’t decide if she should be allowed in women’s ward

Alesha was admitted to the hospital after being shot by a criminal gang which, according to the group, extorts money from transgender people. She was admitted with eight gunshot wounds, according to local media, but the tragedy only got worse after she was brought into the place where she should have found care. According to posts, staff were too confused about which ward to admit her to, to tend to her wounds. They wrote: “Hospotal [sic] staff in LRH ia extremly rude and impolite. Transgender are abused and made fun of.Operation theater staff is commenting on our dresses and looks.

Goodbye Yahoo

Yahoo is for sale, and bidders are lining up to grab their own, ever-shrinking piece of Internet history.

The once-great Internet pioneer is entertaining offers...reluctantly. CEO Marissa Mayer would like to see Yahoo through its struggles, but impatient investors are looking for a way to cash out.

Yahoo (YHOO, Tech30) has reportedly given interested parties until April 18 to make their offers. The company is expected to fetch something like $8 billion for its core Internet business.

Who's buying?

The list of interested parties matches the potpourri of businesses that Yahoo operates.

Media companies, such as the Daily Mail and Time Inc. (TIME), are reportedly thinking of making an offer. A Daily Mail spokesman confirmed to CNNMoney that the company is looking at bidding for Yahoo.

Technology companies, such as Google (GOOGL, Tech30) and Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30), are also reportedly looking into bidding for other pieces. Though Google isn't likely to make an offer, due to antitrust concerns, Microsoft would like to preserve its relationship with Yahoo, providing Bing search results for some search queries. Microsoft had made a $45 billion offer for Yahoo in 2008, which Yahoo successfully fought off. Verizon (VZ, Tech30) could also be a player. It owns Yahoo rival AOL and other media assets, and the company has publicly expressed interest in taking a look at Yahoo. AOL is like a mini version of Yahoo, with a sizable digital advertising and online content business. Verizon bought AOL last year for more than $4 billion.

Private equity firms General Atlantic, TPG and KKR are also widely reported to be considering buying Yahoo.

What happens next?

After April 18, Yahoo will decide whether it likes any of the offers it received. It could enter into an agreement with a potential buyer, or it could turn down all the offers.

If Yahoo enters into a purchase agreement, it will likely be a complicated deal that could take a long time to complete. Yahoo has stakes in Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba (BABA, Tech30) and Yahoo Japan, which likely won't be part of the sale. Yahoo has been trying to unload Alibaba through a complex reverse-spinoff for months.

If Yahoo doesn't sell itself, it could begin a nasty battle with activist hedge fund Starboard Value, which has said it would nominate an entirely new slate of directors at Yahoo's upcoming shareholder's meeting later this spring.

What will happen to Marissa Mayer?

Either way, Mayer is probably toast.

Mayer has led the fight to keep Yahoo on its current path, butting heads with Starboard and other investors pushing for a sale. She'll almost certainly be ousted, regardless of the outcome.

If Mayer is fired as a result of a sale, she could get a golden parachute exit package worth about $37 million. If Yahoo isn't sold, and she's given the boot, she would take home about $12.5 million.

How did Yahoo get here?

At its peak in early 2000, Yahoo was worth $255 billion. Yahoo never really recovered from the dot-com bust. After a series of missteps, bad bets and six CEOs over the past nine years, Yahoo is now valued at $34 billion.

But that $34 billion is roughly the value of its stake in its Asian holdings. In other words, the stock market is valuing Yahoo's core Internet business as completely worthless.

After a promising start as CEO in 2012, Mayer's free spending on talent, executives and questionable assets like Tumblr -- yielding few positive results -- have landed her in the hot seat. Mayer has been unable to grow the company's profit.

Yahoo unveiled a new strategy in February, cutting staff and focusing on its most crucial businesses. But it appears to be too little, too late.

One 95-Year-Old Shares Her Hope For Fellow Trans People

This is actually really nice. This part of the interview struck me.

When did you first realize that you were Robina? “Well, I never really realized it. I had an extraordinarily good family. I had a wife, Eva; she was quite beautiful, and we had two children [at the time], a girl and a boy. Coca is now 56, and the mother of the two grandsons staying with me here. The other was a boy, Pepe, and when he was 8 and a half, he was killed in an accident.

“He was killed on a snowmobile out in Utah, and that really shook up my life, shook up Eva. It really hurt us tremendously. He died in my daughter’s arms.

“After that, I didn’t know what to do with my life. I never, ever, had entertained the thought of suicide…Even in the midst of the worst sorrow I could get — the death of my son — it never even entered my mind. I knew I had to do something. There was this tremendous urge to change — what, I didn’t know. And then, I don’t know by what means, I came to the fact that I had to change my sex.

“There was no sexual connection with it, there was no drive to think of myself as a woman — it was something that would be [the] furthest thing from my mind that I could ever think that I could be a woman. I never even, ever thought like that. I was male, and I was thoroughly and completely male, never having any homosexual ideas or thoughts or anything like that.

_______________

She wasn't homosexual as a man. Transited in late middle-age. And she wasn't one of late-age trans lesbians, because she ended up with a man. She happily played a traditionally masculine role as a man and a traditionally female role as a woman (You can also google pictures, he was a petite man and passed very well after she transited). In fact she didn't transition for reasons of sex and gender at all. It seems that she experienced great trauma and transitioning was a choice that allowed her rebirth, she had to occupy a different social role to live again. I respect that honesty.

Her story suggests that gender really is an arbitrary construct and is completely different from the current trans narrative. It seems like this is the case for many trans people these days who are seeking to transition to regain control of their emotional lives. Of course most of them tell the essentialist story that they feel "male" or "female", whatever that means. I don't really think they are honest to themselves.

PRINCE CHARLES was "infatuated" w/ our Barbra Streisand

Prince Charles had a decades-long “infatuation” with Barbra Streisand — and became so close to the star that Princess Diana “would not have been surprised if they had an affair,” a royal pal has divulged.

Charles and Streisand first met back in 1974, when the prince was a 26-year-old officer docked in LA and given his choice of any Hollywood star to meet, according to a new book by Christopher Andersen.

Prince Charles had seen the 1968 Streisand movie “Funny Girl” three times and had kept a framed photo of Streisand on his wall at Cambridge and in his private quarters in Buckingham Palace. He’d even confided to his personal valet of his choice to meet Streisand, “I’m sure they thought I’d say Raquel Welch . . . Streisand is my only pinup,” “Game of Crowns,” out Tuesday from Simon & Schuster, reports.

But Streisand seemed “nervous” and “tight-lipped” during the ’74 encounter, later joking of the meeting, “Who knows? If I’d been nicer to him, I might have been the first real Jewish princess.”

She had another chance when she saw the royal at a ’94 LA gala. According to British author Harold Brooks-Baker, the pair “had a secret rendezvous at his suite in the secluded Bel-Air Hotel” — officially booked as a “private tea.”

At another event 10 months later in London, a source recalled, “The prince and Miss Streisand were very affectionate to one another.” And, “Another housekeeper described Charles and Barbra as acting ‘quite flustered’ when she surprised them in Charles’ study,” the book claims.

According to Diana confidante Lady Elsa Bowker, the princess had even said “she would not have been surprised if they had an affair.” But Charles was already involved with Camilla Parker Bowles at the time — whom Bowker also added would have been “absolutely thrilled” about Charles spending time with Streisand. “That would have excited her.”

A rep for Streisand didn’t immediately comment.

I need to vent about this steaming turd of an OS, so help me catalogue the reasons why Windows 10 sucks like a Dyson wet dream:

1)tIt takes for-fucking-EVER to load when you start it up

2)tThe graphic themes were obviously inspired by the line drawings of an autistic second grader

3)tIt demands a password from me at startup, even though I’m the only one who uses my computer – never had to do that with any prior version of Windows

4)tHello NSA! Hope you’re enjoying the fisting pron all that spyware is sending directly to your server from my browsing logs! And while you’re at it, could you please look at the routing behind that one check from my Citibank account last month that bounced, you know, the one for the full-release massage? I KNOW it was covered, and I’m pretty sure the bank messed that one up.

What else?

Three shows (Utopia, Videosyncrazy, and Codes of Conduct) were just canceled before they aired. Two shows (Westworld, Lewis & Clark) halted production recently due to network dissatisfaction. Vinyl was a ratings disappointment and the showrunner is already being replaced. True Detective season 2 was a disaster. Togetherness and Looking only lasted two seasons.

How Fuckin' Lazy Was Olivia Newton-John

On the song, "Carried Away" from her LP "Physical" she sings:

Better than I ever knew

And if you can live, without my love, you're really gonna be alone.

The liner notes to the album say:

Better than I've ever known

And if you can live, without my love, you're really gonna be alone.

Of course the liner notes show the lines rhymed and should have been sung that way. Obviously she made an error.

Was she so fuckin' lazy she couldn't do another take to get the song right?

I realize the song was a second rate Bee Gee song, described as "inferior" by Barbara Streisand (it was written for her "Guilty" album and rejected by her), but talk about lazy.

I'm glad her career declined after Physical and she had an ugly kid. Serves her right for being lazy.

Sen. Lindsey Graham LEAVES #NeverTrump Movement

After Trump locked up the Republican nomination early this month, Sen. Lindsey Graham said that Trump doesn't have the temperament or judgment to be president and said Trump has "conned" the Republican Party.

He had called Trump a “race-baiting, xenophobic bigot,” a “complete idiot,” a “jackass,” and a “wrecking ball.” He urged GOP voters to tell Trump to “go to hell” and warned that if Trump did win the nomination, “that’s the end of the Republican Party.” After Graham dropped out, he described the two-man race between Trump and Ted Cruz as a choice between “being shot or poisoned.” Graham eventually did endorse Cruz, who, you may have already guessed, Graham dislikes intensely, because he hated Trump that much more.

My personal favorite came just three weeks ago, when Graham told CBS that Trump’s approach to foreign policy “will lead to another 9/11.”

Now Graham says "we need to get behind the party and support the party and do what we need to do to raise the funds necessary to make sure that Donald J. Trump is our next president of the United States."

WTF?

Texas Teen Shoots, Kills Three-Year-Old Stepson for Jumping on Bed

A Texas teenager fatally shot his own stepson because the toddler wouldn't stop jumping on the bed, authorities said.

George Coty Wayman, 18, was arrested on a charge of capital murder, according to a Clay County warrant.

The incident occurred Tuesday afternoon inside a trailer home in the tiny town of Bellevue, near the border with Oklahoma.

Wayman's three-year-old stepson, Dominic Tra'Juan Castro, was bouncing on the bed when he was shot in the back of the head. After a 911 call, a helicopter ambulance rushed Dominic to a hospital 40 miles away but it was too late. The boy was pronounced dead Wednesday morning.

Witnesses initially told investigators that Dominic had been bouncing on the bed when he accidentally landed on the gun, causing it to discharge, officials told KDFX-TV.

After further interviews, however, witnesses admitted that Wayman had pointed the gun at the boy and told him if he didn't stop jumping on the bed he would shoot him, Clay County Sheriff Kenny Lemons told CBS News.

When the boy kept bouncing, Wayman allegedly pulled the trigger.

"Investigators interviewed eyewitnesses in the bedroom at the time of this incident and have determined that Wayman is the individual that pointed and discharged the handgun that caused the death of the victim," according to the arrest warrant.

Wayman, whose last name is tattooed above his right eye, is currently being held at Clay County Jail. In addition to the charge of capital murder, he also faces one count of criminal trespass. His bail has been set at $505,000, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Memorials to Dominic appeared on social media after his death, along with calls for a stiff sentence for his stepfather.

The boy's biological father is currently in prison for multiple convictions and was denied parole in January, according to KDFX-TV.

Obama: World Leaders 'Rattled' by Donald Trump

President Obama said world leaders are "rattled" by Donald Trump as the likely Republican nominee for the U.S. presidency.

"They are paying very close attention to this election," the president told reporters Wednesday in Japan of his discussions with world leaders.

"They are surprised by the Republican nominee. They are not sure how seriously to take some of his pronouncements but they’re rattled by him, and for good reason."

Trump has shown an "ignorance of world affairs or a cavalier attitude or an interest in getting tweets and headlines instead of actually thinking through what it is required to keep America safe and secure and prosperous,” Obama said.

The president made his comments after ending his first day of meetings at the G7 summit.

Bernie Sanders, Eyeing Convention, Willing to Harm Hillary Clinton in the Homestretch

Some excerpts:

[quote]Advisers to Mr. Sanders said on Wednesday that he was newly resolved to remain in the race, seeing an aggressive campaign as his only chance to pressure Democrats into making fundamental changes to how presidential primaries and debates are held in the future. They said he also held out hope of capitalizing on any late stumbles by Mrs. Clinton or any damage to her candidacy, whether by scandal or by the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump.

[quote]Mr. Sanders, his advisers said, has been buoyed by a stream of polls showing him beating Mr. Trump by larger margins than Mrs. Clinton in some battleground states, and by his belief that an upset victory in California could have a psychological impact on convention delegates who already have doubts about Mrs. Clinton.

[quote]While Mr. Sanders says he does not want Mr. Trump to win in November, his advisers and allies say he is willing to do some harm to Mrs. Clinton in the shorter term if it means he can capture a majority of the 475 pledged delegates at stake in California and arrive at the Philadelphia convention with maximum political power.

[quote]Tad Devine, a senior adviser to Mr. Sanders, said the campaign did not think its attacks would help Mr. Trump in the long run, but added that the senator’s team was “not thinking about” the possibility that they could help derail Mrs. Clinton from becoming the first woman elected president.

I hope Sanders et al. become personas non grata within the Democratic Party.

Presidential betting odds, an ongoing thread

... or at least it will be.

Bookmakers' odds have been an incredibly accurate prediction of presidential elections since forever, so I thought it might be illustrative to provide periodic looks at bookmaking on the 2016 presidential election. So I'm sort of a shady version of the Poll Troll. 😊

As you probably know, the first number is the number staked by the bookie, the second by the better.

Bernie Sanders is a good illustration. As of today betting on Bernie to be elected president of the United States gets best odds of 25/1 -- if you bet a dollar, and Bernie wins, the bookie pays you $25.

Is that clear? The site I'll be quoting bets in UK pounds so uses the fractional odds system. I'm not posting this to promote illegal gambling, but solely to track the bookmakers' assessment of the odds as time goes on.

Should Men Wear Running Leggings?

At InStyle HQ we pride ourselves on having all of our fingers on the fashion pulse, but there is one trend that has got our opinions a bit divided. Quite simply, should men wear running leggings?

At InStyle HQ we pride ourselves on having all of our fingers on the fashion pulse, but there is one trend that has got our opinions a bit divided. Quite simply, should men wear running leggings?

If I’m honest, I used to think men who wore sports leggings looked a bit ridiculous. Black is slimming, and emphasizing skinny chicken legs is not a good look on a man. Why do you need to wear leggings AND shorts when you could just wear tracksuit bottoms? Playing devil’s advocate, I got a pair of running leggings to try out myself… and I’ve never looked back. Here’s why.

First: I drag myself out of bed at 6am to trek through the cold (11 months of the year) to the gym. If I put on a pair of running leggings (with shorts on top), I can run to the gym, do my workout, and then run home without having to mess around changing into shorts and back again. I’ll always take the temperature controlled, lazy option at that time in the morning. Second: they cover you up! I’d much rather see a guy wearing sports leggings than spanx-like cycling shorts, or those baggy running shorts that cut just below the waist band. Third: us Brits can be quite a pasty lot and leggings help avoid that farmer’s-tan-for-the-legs issue if running around in the sun. Once you get those tan lines, you’ll have them all year.

nd last but not least, most of the men I see wearing running leggings are very fit. They look like professional sportsmen – and I want to look like that too. So as long as men remember the shorts layer, I’m all for them.

Jamie Bell is the latest actor rumoured to play 007

Could Billy Elliot play Bond? Jamie Bell is the latest name to be thrown into the 007 rumour mill as reports continue to circle that Daniel Craig is ready to hand in his licence to kill.

So, how did 30-year-old Bell end up in the running? His latest movie – "Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool", which reunites him with Julie Walters – is being produced by Barbara Broccoli, who any Bond fan will know has also produced every Bond film starring Craig and his predecessor Pierce Brosnan. Oh, and Bell also plays a spy in American Revolutionary wartime drama "Turn: Washington Spies" so he has the relevant work experience on his CV.

Not content with sitting by and letting such a coincidence slip unnoticed, the Sun newspaper have a 'source' confirming that Broccoli is eyeing up her young star to become the next 007: "Barbara has been a fan of Jamie for a long time and has even thought about him playing another role in the franchise before.

"Tom Hiddleston and Aidan Turner are still in the frame, but Jamie has really shown that he is definitely up there competing with them."

My aunt fucked Eric Clapton in the 70s and other stories and gossip...

Partially copy pasted from the "Would you date a racist?" thread.

Sure [R33]! Not really positive how much traction it would get so I'll spill what I know here. I'd call her now but she passed only a couple years back. From what I understand she was involved in the NYC club scene in the early to mid 70s, and that's how she met him. They were together on and off for two years. She said the sex was alright (she was pretty frank and funny) but what really turned her off him was the slick comments he made about black people/non-white people in general. It confused her because most of the music he played was blues/rock and we all know who pioneered those genres.

When she broke it off he basically called her every name under the sun and threatened her. Not sure if he said n*gger but most likely he was thinking it. For those curious she had dark skin, wideish nose, kinda on the short side,a little bit thick, and had like, a 10 inch fro in those days. Really was an amazing woman with lots of stories to tell (yes I miss her!). Feel free to ask questions maybe it'll jog my bad memory. I'm only half joking.

And by together I mean fucked every time he was in town for two years.

Well she said it was a pretty good length. "Good length" means different things to different people of course but judging by his height and build (not always reliable) I'd say it was big(gish).

The sex was alright she explained because he kinda starfished it. Not her exact words but you know what I mean. He just expected her to do all the work I guess. Anddd he was on heroin/speed/coke/whatever else for most of the 70s so...

Other stories... Touching herself while Marvin Gaye was performing on TV in the late 60s, her mother catching her and then kicking her out. A few years later her and her best friend semi stalk him every time they get word he's in LA. (This is before she moved to NY)

Interrupts Joan Baez singing some sad song at a relaxed house party high off her ass. She arrived hours late. Joan makes some snide comment to her and my aunt and her go back and forth before she's asked to leave.

Sly from Sly and the Family Stone offering her to join his err...harem. Said no (couldn't be me!)

Cussing out Diana Ross in a night club, drunk as fuck, for leaving the Supremes. She discovered later she couldn't hear her as the music was too loud.

Sort of a wild child but calmed down in her later years.

BREAKING Beth Howland DEAD!

Her husband, actor Charles Kimbrough, tells The Associated Press that Howland died of lung cancer in Santa Monica, California, on Dec. 31. He says there was no funeral or memorial service and “that was her choice.”

Howland played naïve diner waitress Vera Louise Gorman on Alice for the nine-year run of the comedy that ended in 1985, earning four Golden Globe nominations. Her credits also include parts on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and The Love Boat.

Howland is also survived by a daughter from her previous marriage to actor Michael J. Pollard.

Sometimes a Great Notion (1970)

Why is this film not better known? I'm not a big fan of family dramas but this one was pretty awesome-it has a great script, a wonderful cast and Lee Remick at her most beautiful.

There's also a really terrifying death scene in there (terrifying because it's so realistic) and a really memorable ending.

I think Paul Newman was a talented director and should have directed more movies. Rachel Rachel is another of his masterpieces.

Donald Trump "Welfare recipients work for their check by doing jobs illegals do"

"Benefits should have strings attached to them. After all, if it's our money recipients are getting, we the people should have a say in how it's spent."

"The way forward is to do what we did with AFDC and attach welfare benefits to work."

If welfare recipients do the jobs illegal immigrants are doing, we can get more illegals out of America"

New Campaign to Give Captain America a Boyfriend

[bold]Twitter Wants Marvel To #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend[/bold]

May 25, 2016

Following in the footsteps of the online petition to give Elsa a girlfriend in the upcoming Frozen sequel, a new hashtag has been trending on Twitter: #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend.

Now the hashtag is the number one trending topic on the social media site with over 85,000 tweets urging Marvel and Disney to make Captain America and his sidekick Bucky a couple.

People online have been stanning for Captain America and Bucky-or Stucky-as boyfriends since before Captain America: Civil War was released with pages of fanart on Tumblr. It looks like the campaign has finally caught on with the rest of the internet.

“I feel like it sucks that people in the LGBT community don’t get the representation that they deserve and it would be so amazing for something like Captain America or Marvel to be able to portray that, and maybe just let people know that it’s okay to be who you are. You know?” Salerno told Metro U.K. on why she started the hashtag. “You don’t have to be scared, especially to be able to have children grow up in that way, I feel like it would do amazing things for the future.”

Check out some of the best #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend tweets below:

"The Last Weynfeldt" by Swiss writer Martin Super. I'm having trouble accepting the protagonist as heterosexual, but otherwise it's written well enough that the glowing reviews seem well-founded.

At the same time, I'm listening to "Agorafabulous!" by Sara Benincasa. Overall, I think the book is a real hoot. Then again, I'm a Jersey girl like her.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11

The Real Housewives of Orange County are back for season 11—and it looks like this go-round with Bravo's original recipe is going to build to one horrifying moment. (No, we're not talking about Brooks Ayers' inevitable return—though, more on that in a moment.)

In the just-released trailer the new season ahead, among the fighting and the fresh face (nice to meet ya, Kelly Dodd!), we get our first look at the very scary four-wheeler accident that sent Housewives Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge to the hospital last month. To say that the incident looks painful would be an understatement. We're just surprised that the ladies managed to escape with only minor injuries.

Of course, that very serious and terrifying day is only one part of what Bravo's teasing from the new season, set to premiere Monday, June 20 at 9 p.m.You want the juicy drama? You've got it. Heather Dubrow's struggle with hubby Terry's commitment to his work looks more intense than ever, while there's at least one big blowout in recently-reconciled spouses Shannon and David Beador. Oh—and that falling out between Shannon and the OG of the O.C. Vicki? It doesn't look as though any of that ice has thawed.

As for the Brooks of it all, Vicki can claim all she wants that he's out of her life for good, but the cameras don't lie. And her on-camera call to him, telling him she loves him, has us thinking that we haven't seen the last of good ol' Brooks. So, brace yourselves for that.

Now, about that fresh face we mentioned. Newbie Kelly is a stay-at-home mom with a mouth as big as her heart, according to Bravo. After a rocky period in her marriage, she recently reconciled with her husband Michael, who cashed out of major tech toy company and is now home. She also shares her 4-story oceanfront mansion with 9-year old daughter Jolie, her younger brother Eric and her mom Bobbi. Among the ladies, Kelly finds herself in hot water when she befriends outcast Vicki despite warnings from her bestie Meghan. It probably doesn't help when she calls one of them a "c--t" as we see her do in the trailer. Just saying.

The Real Housewives of Orange County returns for season 11 on Monday, June 20 at 9 p.m. on Bravo, but before it does, look out for The Real Housewives of Orange County Uncensored on Monday, June 13 at 9 p.m., featuring never-before-seen footage from season eight of the show. (You know, the one where Vicki and former Housewife Lauri Peterson screamed about threesomes on the slopes of Whistler.)

Design Guru Chris Hyndman (of Steven & Chris) "The gay community can be pretty cold"

In their early days on television, Chris Hyndman says, he was tormented daily by hate mail. The worst part? Much of it came from the gay community.

“The gay community can be pretty cold, and it’s pretty hard on you if people turn on you that you expect to really accept you because you’re a screaming queen,” Hyndman says. “Well, a lot of us are, but when a gay person says you’re a screaming queen, that’s pretty insulting because then you’re, like, Oh my god, you’re a queen to the queens.”

“You would take them personally,”Steven Sabados chides. Ignoring the hate came more naturally to him.

“It just rolled off my back because I don’t really care. You can’t hurt me. I’m just doing the best I can do, and if you don’t like it, then I don’t care,” he says.

Is celebrity a modern invention?

Before mass media, who were the "stars" of the world? Royalty? Artists? Architects? Even then it's not like everyone would know who they were, only name recognition.

So it must not have been until the invention of moveable type that the concept of "celebrity" could become widespread, and certainly not until the advent of radio/tv/film that we got this obsession with fame that we have today.

Who would have been some early celebrities that would have been known around the world, WHILE they were still alive?

I am a top, but I cannot just jump in the bed with anyone and fuck them. I can only have sex with people who I have some kind of emotional connection with.

I am envious of my other friends that are tops who go to these sex clubs, bathhouses and use apps to fuck numerous people. One of my friends fucked 15 guys in a week. I have seen some of the dudes he fucked. It a mix of good looking, OK and not so cute of guys, but I envy and admire my friend, because I cannot do what he does.

How can I becoming a top like him? I hate my emotions and want to get rid of them and just fuck without any emotions.

GCHQ chief apologises for 'horrifying' treatment of Alan Turing

GCHQ chief apologises for 'horrifying' treatment of Alan Turing

Robert Hannigan says archaic attitudes persisted for decades after Turing was hounded over his sexuality

Press Association, Saturday 16 April 2016 08.54 BST

The director of GCHQ has apologised for historic prejudice against gay people by the agency and the “horrifying” treatment of Alan Turing.

Robert Hannigan said the secret service failed to learn from its mistaken treatment of the genius, and archaic attitudes had persisted for decades, stifling the careers of brilliant minds.

It included a ban on gay people joining the organisation that remained in place into the 1990s, causing long-lasting psychological damage to those who found themselves outed, interrogated and ostracised over their sexuality.

In a rare public appearance at a conference hosted by Stonewall, the digital espionage chief said a former spy, “Ian”, who was forced out of the service on suspicion of being gay in the 1960s, had urged him to apologise for his treatment.

Hannigan said: “I am happy to do so today and to say how sorry I am that he and so many others were treated in this way, right up until the 1990s, when the policy was rightly changed.

“The fact that it was common practice for decades reflected the intolerance of the times and the pressures of the cold war, but it does not make it any less wrong and we should apologise for it.

“Their suffering was our loss and it was the nation’s loss too because we cannot know what Ian and others who were dismissed would have gone on to do and achieve. We did not learn our lesson from Turing.”

Known as the father of the modern computer, Turing led the famous Bletchley Park codebreakers who cracked Enigma, an encryption device used by the Nazis.

Despite his ground-breaking work that is now recognised to have shortened the second world war, he was hounded from the secret service over his sexuality.

Turing faced a criminal charge of indecency over his relationship with another man and after conviction in 1952 was ordered to undergo chemical castration.

In 1954 he took his own life by eating an apple laced with cyanide. In 2013 he received a royal pardon, although the story of how the war hero’s life ended had become “sadly famous”, Hannigan said.

“In the horrifying story of his treatment, a small ray of light is that he was not abandoned by all of his colleagues at GCHQ. Many stood by him.”

More than half a century later, GCHQ now relies on those who “dare to think differently and be different”, he said.

It included hiring spies on the autistic spectrum, with Asperger’s or other syndromes, whom he described as “precious assets” in protecting national security.

Hannigan told the Stonewall workplace conference in London that GCHQ supported the charity in “defending and promoting tolerance and acceptance without exception”.

Billy Bush likely to be Matt Lauer's sucessor and Kelly Ripa's rival

Remember when everyone was raving about how much tension there was between Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan? That was so two weeks ago.

Now, there's a new man moving to toward the top of Kelly's enemy list and his name is Billy Bush.

It's expected to be announced this week that Billy will be added to "Today" to go head to head during the hour of Kelly's "Live With Kelly and [whoever]" show. It was announced last month the he Billy was leaving "Access Hollywood" and "Access Live."

Kelly has yet to announce who her permanent co-host will be in light of Michael's departure for "Good Morning America," although there has been a laundry list of names rumored.

Billy's move could also impact Matt Lauer, who has long been one of the familiar faces of morning television.

"Matt has a lot of clout, but it's also a case of 'when is his divorce from the show finally going to happen?'" an insider told the New York Post, adding that Matt's contract is up at the end of this year. "People fear and love Matt there. Billy is more of an entertainment talking head, so his addition will be a major change. His style is very different from Matt. But that might be a positive."

Billy is close with "Today" head Noah Oppenheim, and, the source said, "It's only a matter of time before the morning show severs ties with Matt."

Matt has high-level backers of his own, though, especially in the name of NBC News boss Andy Lack.

"Matt's deal with NBC is the most important thing to the network, as long as he wants to stay, he'll have a job at 'Today.'"

Another source told the newspaper's Page Six gossip section that Billy is simply being added to the show's lineup of personalities and it hardly spells doom for Matt.

"Billy Bush taking over Matt's role is not happening, and no one inside of NBC has even discussed or contemplated it. [Billy] moving to 'Today' is purely a play to be more competitive in the 9 o'clock hour."

Do You Use A Foreign Online Pharmacy.

I have been diagnosed with a life threatening disease. Buying the medication for it will bankrupt me. Medicare is increasingly upping their copays for hundreds of dollars per month. I am not poor enough to get a reduced price from the manufacturers.

This medication is $79 a month in Israel, $112 a month in Canada. It's $450 here.

Visa and Mastercad have colluded with the FDA to refuse payment to online foreign pharmacies. My state (and soon, yours) requires electronic prescriptions. It may be illegal to send an electronic prescription to an overseas pharmacy.

This is America folks Corporations ship their jobs overseas, get tax breaks, ruin towns that relied on industry. But you and I cannot partake of the global marketplace, where sane countries put a cap on medication prices. We are forced into paying burdensome prices in the United States.

I'm going to starve to death because i can't digest my food and I can't pay for the medicine that will help me get nutrients from my food.

"SUPERGIRL" SCORES HIGHEST-RATED NEW SERIES DEBUT OF FALL SEASON

It's been half a day since "Supergirl's" pilot debuted on CBS and the new superhero is still soaring. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the highly-anticipated and much-promoted premiere episode of "Supergirl" was a big success for the network in the ratings.

The debut episode, which followed "The Big Bang Theory," was viewed by 12.9 people (per Nielsen Media's same day metrics) and averaged a 3.2 rating among adults 18-49. The episode's rating edges out NBC's "Blindspot," which previously held the record for the most-watched new series debut of the 2015-2016 season. "Blindspot" had a 3.1 rating in the 18-49 demo.

As THR points out, it's likely that "Supergirl's" numbers will grow even more when the numbers for those watching on DVR and streaming services are taken into account.

"Supergirl" also had a solid lead-in this week in "The Big Bang Theory," which aired its final Monday night episode before returning to Thursday night; that episode was watched by 15.9 million viewers. Next week, "Supergirl" moves into its new 8 PM time slot where it will lead off CBS' Monday night lineup.
