I sometimes feel: What's the point of being gay if I'm not beautiful

I'm not ugly but certainly not hot. Gay men just don't respond to me, which makes for a rather lonely existence when you're gay.

I'm smart, well off, established in a great career, pretty fun.

Yet, none of that seems to matters to the gay men I meet.

I've tried too long for the gay community (is there one?) to even acknowledge me, let alone accept me.

Do I just give up and become a recluse? Honestly what's the point of going to a bar, party, or club hoping for something to be different this time?

Don’t tell parents if transgender males bunk with daughters

A Maryland school district is instructing teachers and administrators not to tell parents if their daughters are bunking with male students who identify as girls on overnight field trips.

Bob Mosier, chief communications officer for Anne Arundel County Public Schools, says in a training video detailing how to accommodate transgender students that privacy issues regarding the student prevent the district from informing parents about such arrangements.

“So, many of you might be asking yourselves, ‘So I’m at an overnight field trip, and I have student who’s biologically a male, identifies as a female, and we’ve worked with that student and her family, and that student wants to sleep in the dorms, or whatever sleeping arrangements are, with the females,’” Mr. Mosier says in a video of the training session. “They don’t want to sleep in a room by themselves; they want to sleep with the rest of the females. So what do we do?

“And the answer is, they sleep with the females,” he said. “That’s not the easy answer; it’s the right answer. And in some cases, it’s going to cause issues, because … the private information piece doesn’t allow you to share that with parents of all of the other campers. Right? So that’s difficult.”

Writing at The American Conservative, Rod Dreher said the video is “very instructive, though not necessarily in the way the school system intends.”

“This gender insanity is not everywhere, yet, but it’s coming,” Mr. Dreher wrote. “Mark that. If you’re a teacher, administrator, or staffer for a public school system anywhere in the United States, you are going to find yourself sitting in a seminar just like this one day, if you haven’t already. And if you object, you’re a bigot.”

I'll be 55 years old tommorrow

And no longer a part of that desirable 35-54 year old demographic. This makes me feel a bit sad. Not like my life is over just that I'm officially no longer part of the mainstream. It's hard to describe, but we live in a youth oriented society and it seems like after 54, you don't really matter. It's a significant number in our society. When I turned 35 I didn't worry about how I wasn't considered "young" anymore -- I was an adult with responsibilities. Now I just feel like I'm on the sidelines. I'll be 70 years old in 15 years. I'm grateful for my health but this is the age where contemporaries start to drop off, just a trickle but it's the beginning of old age and the end.

Colin Kaepernick explains why he doesnt stand during the National Anthem

Forty Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick has willingly and knowingly immersed himself into controversy by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem in protest of what he deems are wrongdoings against African Americans and minorities in the United States.

His latest refusal to stand for the anthem -- he has done this in at least one other preseason game -- came before the 49ers preseason loss to Green Bay at Levi's Stadium.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game against Green Bay. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."

The 49ers issued this statement: "The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pre-game ceremony. It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect on the great liberties we are afforded as its citizens. In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose and participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem."

By taking a stand for civil rights, Kaepernick, 28, joins other athletes, like the NBA's Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony and several WNBA players in using their platform and status to raise awareness to issues affecting minorities in the U.S.

However, refusal to support the American flag as a means to take a stand has brought incredible backlash before and likely will in this instance. The NBA's Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf of the Denver Nuggets, formerly Chris Jackson before converting to Islam, refused to acknowledge the flag in protest, citing similar reasons as Kaepernick and saying that it conflicted with some of his Islamic beliefs.

Abdul-Rauf drew the ire of fans and was briefly suspended by the NBA before a compromise was worked out between the league and player, who eventually stood with his teammates and coaches at the playing of the national anthem.

Kaepernick said that he is aware of what he is doing and that he knows it will not sit well with a lot of people, including the 49ers. He said that he did not inform the club or anyone affiliated with the team of his intentions to protest the national anthem.

"This is not something that I am going to run by anybody," he said. "I am not looking for approval. I have to stand up for people that are oppressed. ... If they take football away, my endorsements from me, I know that I stood up for what is right."

Kaepernick said that he has thought about going public with his feelings for a while but that "I felt that I needed to understand the situation better."

He said that he has discussed his feelings with his family and, after months of witnessing some of the civil unrest in the U.S., decided to be more active and involved in rights for black people. Kaepernick, who is biracial, was adopted and raised by white parents and siblings.

Kaepernick's Twitter feed is filled with civil rights Tweets and messages.

The former Super Bowl starting quarterback's decision to go public comes while he is fighting for his football life with the 49ers, who drafted him in the second round in 2011. He lost his starting job last season after being one of the most promising players in the NFL during his run under former coach Jim Harbaugh.

Over the past few months, his relationship with management has turned sour. He requested a trade last spring, which never came to fruition. He also has spent most of the offseason rehabilitating from operations to his left (non-throwing) shoulder, his hand and knee. That left him unable to fully compete with Blaine Gabbert for months and now, just weeks before the regular season starts, has him seemingly in a bind to regain his starting job.

ITALY REACHES BREAKING POINT: Rome sending migrants BACK to Sudan on private jets

August 27, 2016 - Sudanese and Italian authorities are working together to tackle the migrant crisis.

Some 48 people in Ventimiglia have been deported as human rights organisations protest against the move.

The migrants, who were hoping to cross the Italian border into France, were flown to the Sudanese capital of Khartoum on a chartered EgyptAir flight.

In a bid to avoid protesters expecting the flight to leave from Milan Malpensa Airport, the migrants were actually flown from Turin-Caselle, an airport over an hour away.

The deportation, the first of its kind in Italy, has been met with outrage.

Speaking to local media, protesters said: "We knew well two of the guys that were on that plane.

"Until yesterday they were in the Red Cross centre, they felt safe and they were preparing everything to ask for asylum.”

Italian officials are yet to comment on the deportation.

Alessandra Ballerini, a lawyer in Caritas Ventimiglia and expert in immigration law, said: "This is a mass deportation to a country where fundamental rights are violated and where their lives are in danger.

“With this operation, our country becomes an accomplice.”

In 2015, 60 per cent of Sudanese asylum seekers were granted humanitarian protection in Italy.

But Sudan and Italy signed an agreement earlier this month to work together on migration and border control issues.

A team of Sudanese officials have been sent to the Italian-French border to identify migrants to be repatriated.

Amnesty International says human rights abuses have taken place during conflicts in Sudan.

President Omar Hassan Ahmad al-Bashir is wanted for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Julia Roberts Blind Items dirty Reveals

December 28, 2006

This married A++ actress was attached to do a movie but wanted a certain actor to play opposite her. The actor was not interested but our actress thought she could convince him and the studio believed her. The studio chartered a jet and our actress flew 11 hours one way and 12 hours on the return flight. All of this travel for about six hours of alone time with the actor who still did not want to do the movie but had a great deal of fun doing something else. The actress returned home, broke the sad news to the studio, broke off her own involvement in the project and ultimately cost the studio a great deal of money but it was her satisfaction that was most important and so they still do business together. Julia Roberts

In her day, she was everywhere and pretty much had her pick of any movie …or any man.

People cringed when she came on set and she rarely spoke to anyone “beneath” her. That didn’t keep her from getting work because it was a guarantee hit if she was in it. I’ve seen firsthand what she reduces a man to once she’s decided she’s through with him. Julia Roberts

The Journalistic Assassination of Ryan Lochte

So, unlike virtually every other "reputable" news outlet, USA Today did some actual reporting and found that, yes, Ryan was telling the truth. But that doesn't matter to us, does it? All we want is a lynch mob. A chance to feel better about ourselves and to feel holier-than-thou. I mean, how would we have the eventual heart-warming redemption story if we hadn't tried to destroy the man's life and achievements first?

[quote]Man, that Ryan Lochte, what a jerk! Am I right? Of course I’m right. It’s backed up by journalism. There isn’t a news outlet on the planet that hasn’t carried a story about how Lochte and three other swimmers no one bothers to name got hammered at the Rio Olympics, trashed a bathroom at a gas station, and traumatized innocent security guards, women, children, and plant life alike.

[quote]But what if it didn’t happen that way? What if, with the exception of a few minor details flubbed in a drunken haze, Lochte and his fellow mermen told the truth?

[quote]That might seem far-fetched. After all, media luminaries such as Matt Lauer and Al Roker slammed Lochte as a liar. Lochte himself admitted to lying. It’s true; we saw it in the media. Or did we?

[quote]The story begins after the swimmers were done with their events. Friends hit the town, as anyone would, and had a few (maybe a few too many) adult beverages. If you think you wouldn’t seek to blow off some steam and have a little fun after going through what it takes to become an Olympic champion, you’re lying to yourself.

[quote]None of this was illegal; none of it was wrong.

[quote]As anyone who’s had a few drinks can imagine, on the way back to their rooms, the swimmers had to pee. This is where the media narrative goes off the rails.

Why are feminists and SJWs so opposed to the "burkini" ban?

I really don't understand. I know that some Muslim women say that they wear the burkini, or other head/body coverings out of choice as opposed to oppression, but wouldn't you think that those women are simply brainwashed by religion? I'm kind of surprised at the reaction of women's rights advocates. Of course, it is the right of these women to wear the burkini, but I can't see how it isn't a form of oppression, even if the wearer doesn't recognize it as such.

I kind of don't blame France for wanting to be a secular society, but then again, I'm an atheist and can't stand any religion. I guess right now, it's only trendy or acceptable to pick on Christians. I don't think that these SJW types understand that they'd be the first to be stoned to death under Islamic rule.

Egyptian police 'are using Grindr to find and arrest LGBT people'

August 27, 2016

Egyptian police are using Grindr and other dating apps to find and arrest members of the country's LGBT community, reports suggest.

Officers have allegedly utilised the gay dating app to pinpoint the location of people suspected of being LGBT.

According to an unnamed source from the Egyptian LGBT community, police have used the app to get within a "few hundred metres" of their targets, according to the Jerusalem Post.

The source told Egyptian lifestyle magazine, Cairo Scene: "It is possible to tell a user's position within a few hundred metres, and many users include personal pictures, making them easily identifiable to cops.

"It baffles me how easily people are willing to share such personal information in a country like Egypt. It is beyond stupid.

"I would advise anyone to be careful when dating online."

While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, authorities have continued to arrest members of the LGBT community under a "debauchery law".

Activists have claimed the vague guidelines set out in the law allow police to arrest and secure convictions of LGBT people.

In April, 11 men were given a total of 101 years in prison for a number of 'debauchery' offences, Gay Egypt reported.

Meta Thread about Feelings and Empathy Trolls

Clever DL members, what is it called when people post concern and empathy to social media, but they don't realise their deep feelies often have no effect whatsoever on anything out there in the big wide world.

For example: “Fifteen civilians, among them 11 children, were killed in a barrel bomb attack on the Bab al-Nayrab neighbourhood,” the Britain-based Syrian Observatory For Human Rights monitor said.

After the attack, a reporter from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation shared a video of two boys mourning the death of their sibling. In it, the boys hug each other as they cry “My brother!”

Twitter: Sophie McNeill ✔@Sophiemcneill Look at this heartbreak today in #Syria It's 1 week since #OmranDaqneesh & NOTHING has changed #wecantsaywedidntknow 11:06 PM - 25 Aug 2016


"1 week & NOTHING has changed." Did she expect change in a war, after 1 week, because some civilians a world away posted their "sads" about a heartbreaking photo last week?

I read that this is not the same as "concern troll"

concern troll: A person who posts on a blog thread, in the guise of "concern," to disrupt dialogue or undermine morale by pointing out that posters and/or the site may be getting themselves in trouble, usually with an authority or power. They point out problems that don't really exist. The intent is to derail, stifle, control, the dialogue. It is viewed as insincere and condescending.


I dont mock the empathy or the deep feelies (well the latter a little bit). But what is it called - that people can feel outraged or betrayed when a social media empathy crusade doesn't have results.

BLM has a lot of this.

There is a meta logic - "I thought we already agreed that black lives matter and indiscriminate killing of black folks is bad, because we all posted about this. So how on earth could it happen again yesterday! We posted about this."

"Stand By Your Man" the big country hit had Tammy Wynette telling women to stand by their man with the intention that if you don't, he'll go to someone else. Lyle Lovett then sang the song from a male perspective with an interpretation of a man who didn't have a woman who stood by him.

Gus met Stipe for the first time through River, who brought him on the set of MOPI. This was also the movie he allegedly got hooked on drugs in. Was there something else going on? We hear news this week that Prince's meds were mislabeled and his last Tweet was "Just when you thought you were safe" and he died in an elevator, after having a long fear of them and associating them with The Devil.

And a boy disappears when he is abducted by extraterrestrial forces and his loss is mourned by his single mother (CLOSE ENCOUNTERS again) who can only communicate with her missing child in another dimension via an electric household appliance (like POLTERGEIST).

Winona Ryder has improved as an actress significantly (she's rid herself of a lot of her child actress mannerisms--finally), and is affecting, although her voice makes her sound like she's still in her twenties.

Chinese food delivery woman shot and killed by 4 teens.

WATERBURY -- Four teens have been arrested in connection with the murder of a Chinese food delivery driver in Waterbury Tuesday night.

Helena Vargas, 59, of Waterbury was found shot outside 70 Linden St. about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. She was taken from the scene and died at the hospital.

Police said another delivery driver, a 60-year-old man, was found assaulted and robbed of his money in the car outside the home on Linden Street. Both people worked for the Golden Wok restaurant on East Main Street, police said.

Wednesday, four people were arrested in connection with the shooting, all teenagers.

19-year-old Anthony Wright of New York, a male juvenile and two female juveniles are all facing murder charges. Wright appeared in court Wednesday afternoon and is being held on $2.5 million bond.

Police believe the people were targeted in the incident and that at least one of the four arrested had called the restaurant to make the delivery order. Investigators said all four of the suspects blamed each other when they were interviewed about what happened.

The new Ben-Hur

Just seen the trailer for the new BEN HUR - just one question: why? Why did they bother? Nothing in it looks real, as per these CGI "spectaculars" - nobody in it is known to me, nor is the director. Morgan Freeman is the only name in it, drafted in to pay Sheik Ilderim - but were black people in positions of power back in the Roman empire ????

I quite like looking in on the 1959 film which still gets aired a lot, particularly at Easter coming up, and its an involving powerful film, which somehow does look 'real' - Jack Hawkins is a powerful Arrius, and he too seems to have the hots for Ben, that "ramming" scene with the rowers seems suggestive to me, and then of course Messala seems to crave Ben too - as per the legend that Gore Vidal and Wyler told Boyd how to play it without letting Heston know. Boyd really should have won best supporting actor - he is the black heart of the film and must have trained as hard as Heston for the chariot race. Hugh Griffiths who did win as the sheik is just a comic turn with a few scenes.

The TV film a few year back, was not too bad actually, within its limitations, but this new one looks not very important.

Trump vs. Clinton Will Come Down to the Debates

Conventional wisdom says Donald Trump is going to lose, and lose big.

You see it everywhere in corporate media. Republican Party insiders are bereft and in denial, simultaneously refusing to accept the reality that their party is facing the possibility of catastrophic defeats in races all over the country this fall; indeed, some pundits say Trump marks the beginning of the end of the GOP. The New York Times is running a 24-7 odds placement that puts Hillary Clinton’s chances of victory at 86% against his 14%.

Indeed, if the election were held today, Hillary Clinton would beat Trump by a sizable margin. But the election is in two months. Two months is a long time. Old scandals percolate; new ones emerge. Another terrorist attack could prompt voters to turn to the right.

By far the biggest potential game changer, however, is the presidential debates. Conventional wisdom says Hillary Clinton will use her superior command of the facts and her ability to namedrop world leaders to run circles around Trump. But conventional wisdom is often wrong – just ask unstoppable 2016 Republican presidential nominee Jeb Bush.

I think Donald will trounce Hillary in the debates.

Epi-Pen CEO's pay jumps from $2 million to $19 million

as the price of Epi-Pens jumps from $57 to $318.

The CEO of EpiPen company Mylan not only quadrupled the price of the life-saving allergy tool - she also started taking home 671 per cent more money, it has emerged. Mylan is currently facing Congress scrutiny after its EpiPens increased in price from $56.64 per pen in 2007 to $317.82 in 2015 - an increase of 461 per cent. But perhaps even more shocking is the even bigger increase in some Mylan execs' wages in that period - including those of CEO Heather Bresch, whose total compensation raised from $2,453,456 to $18,931,068, NBC reported.

Other execs also benefited from much-increased pay. In 2015 president Rajiv Malik's pay increased 11.1 per cent to $1million. And chief commercial officer Anthony Mauro began taking him $625,000 that year - an increase of 13.6 per cent. This came after nine years spent gradually increasing the price of the EpiPen, which gives lifesaving shots of epinephrine to those suffering dangerous allergic reactions. Prices were hiked as frequently as every second quarter, and now cost 461 per cent more than they did in 2007. The price and pay hikes aren't the only big figures in Mylan's recent past. The company also increased its lobbying from $270,000 to $1.2million in 2008. It would appear that move paid off, as in 2010 the FDA changed a recommendation that the company ship the pens two-to-a-box to just one per box. It also said they should be prescribed to at-risk patients as well as those whose allergies have been confirmed.

These plan certainly worked out well for the company: its shares shot up from $13.29 per share in 2007 to a peak of $47.59 in 2016. But the price increases have brought with them anger from Congress, which is demanding to know why those prices increased so dramatically - especially as no generic equivalent of the EpiPen exists. Senators Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), Mark Warner (D-Virginia) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut) have already written the company to complain about the cost to parents and schools. On Monday Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota) called on the Federal Trade Commission to begin a probe. And on Tuesday Representative Grace Meng (D-NY) asked the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to hold a hearing on the issue. In a statement, Mylan said most customers have insurance that limits their copayments, or they can use a copay discount card to save $100. It recommended people review their coverage. It also said that since 2012, Mylan's EpiPen4Schools program had given schools more than 700,000 free EpiPens. Mylan shares were down more than 4 per cent Tuesday.

Vinegar applied immediately works very well for the pain, but it doesn't stop the pustules that form from the ant stings.

Classical Music Gays - Holst's 'The Planets' - amirite?

I'm a philistine. I have no musical knowledge, but I love symphonic music. In particular, symphonic music from the late 19th and early 20th C. wagner, berlioz, Tchaikovsky, Grieg, Ravel, Dvorak, Debussy and - most of all - Stravinsky. But, I think my favorite piece might be Holst's 'The Planets'. I know, I know. How gauche, how obvious. Listening back to The Planets now it's crazy to me how much it's influenced 20th C. film composition. You can hear it's influence in thousands of scores. For drama, sheer versatility and awe inspiring grandeur, I don't think it can be beat.

I mean the thundering, bombast of Mars and the other-worldly etherealness of Neptune with that gorgeous off-stage choir's voices echoing? Come on!

So, with that in mind, let's adapt one of those knock-off-perfume commercials to this example. You know the ones - if you like Obsession by Calvin Klein, you'll love Compulsion by Larry Weinberg.

So, if I like Holst's The Planets, what will I love?

A Question For Those Who Have dated Bi Men

Unless you have an open partnership, in which either partner can date outside the union, there is the monogamy problem, because some men just aren't created monogamous.

So: which is more likely to cheat, a gay man or a bi man?

Because Bis have twice the available partners to choose from (that is, men and women both), are they more susceptible to stimuli? But then, men are more sexually available than women generally, so the gay man who wants to cheat might find it easier.

What was your experience like?

Blind Item: Actor on Top

I just know one of you bitches know who this is...


[Blind Gossip] There are sites where people can submit home videos of themselves having sex. Of course, if there are two people in the video, they are both supposed to give permission when they submit the video.

We just saw a video of two men having sex.  The video seems to be shot from a phone. Both men are clearly aware that they are filming themselves, as the “bottom” guy picks up the phone or camera several times to hold the phone at a different angle.

As soon as we saw the “top” guy, we gasped!

It was an actor who currently stars on a powerful cable TV series!

The actor’s attorney sent a demand letter to the site telling them to remove the video. While demanding the removal, they concurrently claimed that the man in the video is not the actor.

Really? We’ve watched this actor for years. This guy is handsome. We’re talking soap opera star handsome. Either it’s him or his identical twin brother.

He doesn't have a twin brother!

Anyway, in real life, the actor is married to an actress on another TV series. They had a baby in the past year or so.

Rejected for not Liking Football: Crazy reasons people gave for dumping you

I met a guy online who I thought might be the one. He is a bisexual former college football player, in grad school, very bright, kind, masculine, only child, Biracial, built like a Men's Fitness Model. We had a couple of dates, he said he really liked me and I was the first dude he could date. He even said he wants to tell his "bros" about me. We met at a sports bar Sunday to hang. He wanted to stay there all Sunday and watch football. I confessed that I didn't usually watch football and wanted to go to the movies. He looked incredulous in the moment, but we actually left and watched a movie. That night, he texted me and said it wouldn't work out because he saw my lack of interest in football as a fatal flaw. He says masculine men like football, and he doesn't think of men who are not into football as real masculine men. He said we can't relate to each other longterm if I don't enjoy the sport like him. I am trying to move on, but it stings.

Elizabeth Warren Has Basically Had It With Paul Krugman’s Big Bank Nonsense

WASHINGTON — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appeared to offer a thinly veiled rebuke of liberal economist Paul Krugman on Wednesday by highlighting a “scary” too-big-to-fail ruling from federal bank regulators.

The Federal Reserve and the FDIC said Wednesday that five of the biggest banks in the country cannot credibly be unwound safely without bailout money from taxpayers.

“This announcement is a very big deal. It’s scary,” Warren said in a written statement. “After an extensive, multi-year review process, federal regulators concluded that five of the country’s biggest banks are still — literally — too big to fail. They officially determined that five U.S. banks are large enough that any one of them could crash the economy again if they started to fail and were not bailed out.”

The banks — Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, State Street and Bank of New York Mellon — were all given until Oct. 1 to present more credible plans for how they’d enter bankruptcy, or face penalties from regulators. If they continue to fail to present credible “living wills,” regulators will eventually be required to break them up.

But Warren directed her sharpest words at an unnamed set of people who have recently downplayed the role of big banks in the financial crisis and questioned the value of breaking up big banks — an apparent reference to the Nobel Prize-winning Krugman.

“There’s been a lot of revisionist history floating around lately that the Too Big to Fail banks weren’t really responsible for the financial crisis,” Warren said. That talk isn’t new. Wall Street lobbyists have tried to deflect blame for years. But the claim is absolutely untrue.”

“There would have been no crisis without these giant banks,” Warren continued. “They encouraged reckless mortgage lending both by gobbling up an endless stream of mortgages to securitize and by funding the slimy subprime lenders who peddled their miserable products to millions of American families. The giant banks spread that risk throughout the financial system by misleading investors about the quality of the mortgages in the securities they were offering.”

On Friday, Krugman argued that the financial crisis wasn’t really a problem of too big to fail, but rather a failure to regulate so-called shadow banks — a broad term including just about every financial activity beyond traditional loans and deposits.

“The crisis itself was centered not on big banks but on ‘shadow banks’ like Lehman Brothers that weren’t necessarily that big,” Krugman wrote.

“Revisionist history is dangerous because it can blind us in the present - and bind us in the future,” Warren countered. “Today’s announcement should remind us of the central role that the big banks played in the last crisis - and it is a giant, flashing sign warning us about the central role they will play in the next crisis unless both Congress and our regulators show some backbone. ... Today, our top regulators warned us about the danger of the biggest banks - and we would be foolish to ignore their warnings.”

Her singing partners, overwhelmed by the great Barbra, are helpful, but she is so much at the wheel of control that there is no room for them. She also picked out songs that she would have hit out of the park twenty years ago, but swings and misses now. Although she is a great singer, she can't seem to get out of her own way. And age and a happy marriage haven't softened her, or given her a deeper grace. She could never do " Gypsy" now. Sad, how at the end of her career she hasn't matured or seasoned well.

Even though he deserves it. Take the other night the latest example of things. Granted I could have done a little better but for all that he went through for all he knows I could have gone through other stuff the same just in a different way. But he asked me as soon as he got there what my decision was about the stuff we thought could be cool for fun (just expensive!), mind you not even a hello, i swear it went like that. And I did give it some thought but I also thought we were going to go over it step by step that weekend so I guess I wasn't ready. I felt also a little taken by surprise because he knows I don't like just dropping in and as I said it was too early to talk so I guess I was a little short. But his reaction was not a little anything it was a lot of big this and big that. Mean I would say but yes i found out he had a bad day but you know what? He's not the only one.

So now I don't know how i feel about the plans, if there even are plans left. But I'm mad and i think rightly so.

‘DWTS’ Season 23: Maksim Chmerkovskiy Returns to Competition as Pro Dancer

Maskim Chmerkovskiy, considered the bad boy of the “Dancing With the Stars” ballroom, will rejoin the cast as a pro dancer on the new season.

Chmerkovskiy, 36, made the announcement live on “Good Morning America” today.

“I’m looking at this montage you guys put together, and seems like the last 12 years, everything that happened in my life had some sort of relationship to the show, and why keep staying away from stuff that constantly has you on?” he explained.

The pro dancer said he feels great, largely because of his successful summer tour with his younger brother, Val Chmerkovskiy.

“In the process, I somehow got in the best shape of my life,” Maks Chmerkovskiy said of the “Maks & Val” tour. “My knees are back, my ankles are great, and I just wanted this to continue — the feeling, the positivity. There’s so much love there.”

The outspoken fan favorite was the season 18 pro champion — his only win in more than a dozen seasons on “Dancing With the Stars.” After taking the mirror ball trophy in May 2014 with celebrity partner Meryl Davis, Chmerkovskiy announced that he was “done” dancing on the show.

“I’ve done it. There’s no pressure,” he said. “The basic principal of the show stays the same, and you just come in and do your best and help whoever your partner is to do their best. I’m not running after multiple mirror balls. That’s not where my focus is at. I feel absolutely no pressure having to win again. I do, however, know that I’m a very competitive person, so its going to come out, and I’m looking forward to that.”

The names of eight other season 23 dance pros were revealed Tuesday on “GMA.”

Joining him as pros for the season are Lindsay Arnold, Sharna Burgess, Witney Carson, Artem Chigvintsev, Sasha Farber, Allison Holker, Gleb Savchenko and Val Chmerkovskiy.

Not returning is Peta Murgatroyd, who is engaged to Maks Chmerkovskiy and is pregnant with their first child.

“She’s doing amazing and getting bigger, and the baby is kicking, and it’s phenomenal,” the proud father-to-be said. “It’s amazing. I can’t even express it.”

The remaining pros and all 13 of their celebrity partners will be announced Aug. 30 on “GMA.”

The new season of “Dancing With the Stars” premieres Monday, Sept. 12, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Amazing cinematography. Great Soundtrack. Amazing cast. I wonder why there wasn't enough PR for the film. I have the feeling that someone is hating on WB trying to bring down its movies. Such a shame really.

Sea-faring trolley dollies reveal truth about life on cruise ships

They started a Reddit thread. Hookups with passengers are a no-no:

User heapsgoods worked on a cruise ship for three years and revealed they had three friends sent home for sleeping with passengers.It's a strict no-no for crew members. The Redditor wrote: 'Essentially you get busted, you have a masters hearing and you're sent home at the next port (on your dime).

'The cruise companies don't want to be liable for anything and rape accusations are all too real. We aren't allowed to take elevator rides with guests if you're the only two people in it either, for the same reason.'

Ryan Lochte in Talks to Join Season 23 of Dancing with the Stars Cast After Rio Controversy

08/24/2016 AT 12:50 PM EDT Ryan Lochte is in talks to join the celebrities competing on season 23 of Dancing with the Stars, a source tells PEOPLE.

While the cast of the latest edition of the reality competition series has yet to be announced and ABC does not comment on casting reports, the source says Lochte may be among the front-runners.

According to a DWTS insider, "Ryan has wanted to be on the show for years."

The news comes shortly after Lochte, 32, ignited controversy by fabricating a details about being robbed during his time at the Rio Olympics in August.

"I've been thinking about it a lot, because I have a big heart, and I feel like let down a lot of people," Lochte told PEOPLE on Wednesday. "I feel bad that I have let people down."

"Everyone started watching it, and they didn't watch the athletes," he continued. "That's another reason why I'm so hurt by it, because it took away from the Games."

Lochte was dropped by sponsors Speedo and Ralph Lauren in the wake of the incident, and he's facing further punishment from the U.S. Olympic Committee.

Lochte, who won his 12th medal at the Rio games, told NBC's Billy Bush ahead of the second week of Olympic events that he and three other Team U.S.A. swimmers were robbed at gunpoint in Rio.

After prodding from Brazilian police, however, Lochte admitted to PEOPLE in an exclusive interview that he had "made up" details about the robbery. Instead, the group had been confronted by a security guard after being accused of vandalizing a gas station bathroom.

"The part I made up was saying that it was a robbery. I think the word 'robbery' shocked a lot of people, and the story went viral after that," he told PEOPLE. "A gun was pulled, and we had to give them cash. If I didn't say 'robbery,' none of this would have happened."

Subsequently, Lochte told PEOPLE he apologized to his teammates, James Feigen, Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz, who had been held in Brazil for questioning in relation to the swimmer's comments.

Dancing with the Stars wouldn't be Lochte's first foray into reality television: he starred on brief E! series What Would Ryan Lochte Do? in 2013.

The show chronicled the life of the American swimmer as he prepared for Rio.

What about the theory 'the more older brothers you have, the more it increases your chance to be gay'?

The number of biological older brothers a boy's mother has carried--whether they live with him in the same household or not--affects his chances of being gay. The findings, reported this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, by Anthony Bogaert of Brock University, lend credence to the theory that it's not the social or rearing factors that influence a man's sexual orientation, but rather prenatal mechanisms that begin in the womb. The idea that prenatal mechanisms may influence sexual orientation has been around for a couple of decades. In 1996, Bogaert along with colleague Ray Blanchard correlated sexual orientation in men with the number of older brothers, but it wasn't clear if that influence was occurring because the boys shared the same household or because they had shared the same womb. In the new study, Bogaert pitted prenatal against postnatal by examining four samples of homosexual and heterosexual men, for a total of 944 participants. The data for three of the samples had been collected previously, and included detailed information about the men's sexual orientation, as well as their family life. Because most of the men from these three study groups came from unbroken families, Bogaert looked at a fourth group, composed of men who had been adopted or raised with half- or step-siblings. He also gathered data from this group about how long members lived with each sibling and whether they had brothers or sisters with whom they had never lived. He reasoned that if the social or rearing factor theories were correct, he would expect to see certain things. First, it wouldn't matter whether a gay man's older brothers had been biologically related or not, the social influence would be there. Second, the amount of time the young boy lived with his older brothers, biological or not, should affect his sexual orientation. Third, if the boy did not live with older brothers, then the numbers should not impact his sexual preference.

Bogaert found the opposite to be true. First, he found that only the number of biological older brothers predicted sexual orientation in men--even when the number of non-biological older brothers was significantly higher. Second, his study showed that the amount of time reared with older brothers--either related or not--did not predict a young boy's becoming homosexual. And surprisingly, Bogaert discovered that even if a young man did not grow up in the same house as his older brothers, the fact that he had older biological brothers increased his odds of being gay. The fact that the common denominator between the older and younger biological brothers is the mother hints at a prenatal influence on sexual orientation. What it could be is still a mystery. But one theory suggests that after delivering a boy, a woman's immune system produces antibodies to male-specific proteins. During subsequent pregnancies the mother's placenta may deliver the antibodies to the fetus, possibly affecting its development.

Skin Care

Now that I'm starting my seventh decade (I'm 61), I've decided to get serious about skin care. I've never really used anything on my skin except (very infrequently) sunblock. (And of course there was no such thing when I was a boy and out in the sun all the time.) But my skin is not in bad shape ... very few wrinkles, at least.

So ... what's the best skin care regimen and what are the best products (or types of products) to use? I'm thinking a day moisturizer with a high SPF (at least on days when I plan to be in the sun) and some kind of night cream.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions. (And please don't recommend some exotic $500 product!)

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.

In 1850 The US Census Reported 30,000 Homeless Children In NYC Alone

This spurred the "Orphan Train" movement which settled over 200,000 children from NYC alone out in the Midwest. Although most were orphans, some had been abandoned by parents while a small minority were run-a-ways.

It was only beginning of the Great Depression in the 1930s that brought an end to these orphan trains, now operating from all major east coast cities, as well as Detroit and Chicago that brought and end to the resettlement of the orphans.

Historians who have studied the records of the Children’s Aid Society closely have concluded that the largest number of orphan train children were temporarily transferred or shared, not given up.

Most children were not permanently separated geographically or culturally, from their parents and communities of origin. Well into the twentieth century, impoverished but resourceful parents took advantage of the services for their own purposes, including temporary caretaking during periods of economic crisis and apprenticeships that helped children enter the labor market.

Many poor parents had no intention of losing track of their children, and they usually did not, even in the case of very young children placed permanently for “adoption

The gay Iranians pushed to change their gender

Iran is one of a handful of countries where homosexual acts are punishable by death. Clerics do, however accept the idea that a person may be trapped in a body of the wrong sex. So homosexuals can be pushed into having gender reassignment surgery - and to avoid it many flee the country.

Arsham Parsi, a gay man who left Iran for Canada, where he runs the support group, the Iranian Railroad for Queer Refugees, says he receives hundreds of inquiries every week, and has helped nearly 1,000 people leave Iran over the past 10 years.

Some are fleeing to avoid gender reassignment surgery, but others have had treatment and find they still face prejudice. Parsi estimates that 45% of those who have had surgery are not transgender but gay.

"You know when you are 16 and they say you're in the wrong body, and it's very sweet... you think. 'Oh I finally worked out what's wrong with me,'" he says.

When one woman called him from Iran recently with questions about surgery, he asked her if she was transsexual or lesbian. She couldn't immediately answer - because no-one had ever told her what a "lesbian" was.

First Hillary said Donald isn't temperamentally fit to be president (he isn't), and then he leveled that charge on her. Then, Hillary gave an excellent speech a few days back in Reno, Nevada linking Trump to the Alt Right White Nationalists movement and then he outright called her a "bigot" (she isn't of course).

Now, his supporters are tying Hillary to the KKK by spreading a meme that she kissed former KKK member Sen. Byrd. This is despite the fact he spent the later decades of his life disavowing his membership in his 20s. He was honored by the NCAA and spearheaded civil rights during his tenure in the Senate.

Meanwhile, in 2016, Trump has the backing of David Duke and countless members of the White Nationalist movement.

Trump supporters of course are not very intelligent but their "I'm rubber and you're glue" way of thinking, led by Trump and his surrogates, is particularly shameful and repulsive.

I find it comical how he and his top advisers are trying to erase every bigoted thing he said over the course of the past 15 months by reaching out to minority voters. It's gross.

Maine Governor calls state lawmaker a "socialist cocksucker" (AUDIO)

Gov. Paul LePage left a state lawmaker from Westbrook an expletive-laden phone message Thursday in which he accused the legislator of calling him a racist, encouraged him to make the message public and said, “I’m after you.”

LePage sent the message Thursday morning after a television reporter appeared to suggest that Democratic Rep. Drew Gattine was among several people who had called the governor a racist, which Gattine later denied. The exchange followed remarks the governor made in North Berwick on Wednesday night about the racial makeup of suspects arrested on drug trafficking charges in Maine.

“Mr. Gattine, this is Gov. Paul Richard LePage,” a recording of the governor’s phone message says. “I would like to talk to you about your comments about my being a racist, you (expletive). I want to talk to you. I want you to prove that I’m a racist. I’ve spent my life helping black people and you little son-of-a-bitch, socialist (expletive). You … I need you to, just friggin. I want you to record this and make it public because I am after you. Thank you.”

LePage later invited a Portland Press Herald reporter and a two-person television crew from WMTW to the Blaine House, where during a 30-minute interview the governor described his anger with Gattine and others, told them he had left the phone message and said he wished he and the lawmaker could engage in an armed duel to settle the matter.

“When a snot-nosed little guy from Westbrook calls me a racist, now I’d like him to come up here because, tell you right now, I wish it were 1825,” LePage said. “And we would have a duel, that’s how angry I am, and I would not put my gun in the air, I guarantee you, I would not be (Alexander) Hamilton. I would point it right between his eyes, because he is a snot-nosed little runt and he has not done a damn thing since he’s been in this Legislature to help move the state forward.”

Gattine is the House chair of the Legislature’s Health and Human Services Committee, which has opposed some of LePage’s welfare, drug enforcement and other reforms. He said the governor’s phone message was uncalled for.

“Obviously that message is upsetting, inappropriate and uncalled for,” Gattine said Thursday night. “It’s hard to believe it’s from the governor of the state of Maine, but again, we need to stay focused on the drug problem we are facing here in Maine and cannot allow this story to be about the governor’s inappropriate and vulgar behaviors.”


LePage left the message after a television reporter asked the governor what he would say to people who are calling him a racist. LePage asked who had called him that and the reporter said he had talked to Gattine, but didn’t say Gattine had called the governor a racist.

LePage then reacted, told the reporters “you make me so sick,” and stormed off.

He later called the same reporters to the Blaine House for an interview, told them he had called Gattine and said he hoped the lawmaker would make the governor’s phone message public. The Press Herald made a Freedom of Access Act request for the phone message, and Gattine provided a copy to the Press Herald around 8:50 p.m.

Gattine has been a longstanding critic of many of LePage’s proposals to reform the state’s welfare system and has blocked efforts by Mary Mayhew, commissioner of the Department of Health and Human Services, to change eligibility requirements for a variety of programs that help individuals and families with developmental disabilities. Gattine is running for re-election in House District 34, which includes the city of Westbrook. He is unopposed.

Gattine said Thursday that he never called LePage a racist.

“What I said to the television reporter today is that the kind of racially charged comments the governor made are not at all helpful in solving what the real problem is,” Gattine said. “And that is, we have a crisis in the state of Maine of people overdosing on heroin and prescription drugs and we are not doing enough with respect to treatment and prevention.”

David Lynch’s surrealist masterpiece Mulholland Drive, which even its most ardent fans admit is as maddeningly baffling as it is mesmerising, has been named the greatest film of the 21st century.

The resulting top 100 list has Mulholland Drive (2001) at No 1, followed by Wong Kar-wai’s In the Mood for Love (2000); There Will Be Blood (2007); Spirited Away (2001); and Richard Linklater’s Boyhood (2014).

The most popular directors in the list, all with three films each, were Wes Anderson, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Christopher Nolan, Michael Haneke, Paul Thomas Anderson and Joel and Ethan Coen.

Matthew Anderson, the editor of BBC Culture, said greatest film polls often looked right back into the past.

“But we wanted to find out about the best films in recent memory. These are the films that most people feel strongly about.

“We hope that this list will spark discussion and debate, not just among critics and film aficionados, but among everyone who enjoys movies and has an opinion about what makes a good one.”

Each critic was allowed to submit 10 films which resulted in a total of 599, then sorted into the top 100.

Mulholland Drive, originally planned as a six-part TV show, came in at No 1. The film was described by the Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw as “creepy, fascinating, dreamily self-indulgent” as well as being “very enjoyable”.

The most popular year for films was 2012, with 10 films in the top 100 including The Act of Killing (14) and Holy Motors (16). Nine films from 2013 also featured, including 12 Years a Slave and Blue is the Warmest Colour.

There is no room for some of the most popular films of the last 16 years, no Harry Potters or Hobbits or Pirates of the Caribbean; but there is a place for the more obviously commercial movies such as George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) at 19, WALL-E at 29 and Ratatouille at joint 90.

Downy Woodpecker

This Downy Woodpecker visits every winter to a feeder outside my window. He's been coming around for about 5 years. The oldest known DW reached age 11y 11m. No evidence of a lady friend. DW comes daily but usually waits until the sparrows are finished.

I don't get much variety of birds visiting here. Occasionally I get Blue Jays, who are easily spooked. I had a dove nest on my window sill recently, and I had a hawk visit once. The hawk made a God-awful screeching sound. I hope he didn't eat the dove.

Cancer patient beaten to death outside treatment center

To add to the usual roster of senseless crimes... So bizarre. The assailant walked up from behind and just struck her on the head as another person were waiting for a shuttle at 9:45 p.m.. Isn't it weird to have a radiation treatment session after 10 in the evening?

Shannon Vincel of Springfield, Missouri, will be laid to rest Tuesday.

The breast cancer patient was sitting outside the guest quarters of Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, Illinois on Aug. 15 when she was struck in the head with an unknown object by a man, the Zion Police department said in a press release.

She sustained severe head trauma and died the following night at Condell Medical Center, where she was transported by Zion Fire/Rescue.

She was 46.

A witness told responding officers the assailant was a black man wearing dark clothing.

The Zion Police Department has made no arrests and is continuing to investigate.

Cancer Treatment Centers has pledged $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the man responsible for the murder, according to Kristen Gerlach, a spokeswoman for the hospital.

Vincel was a patient at Cancer Treatment Center’s Midwestern Regional Medical Center located midway between Chicago and Milwaukee, according to the police.

She and another patient were waiting outside for the shuttle bus to take them for treatment and around 9:45 p.m., the assailant approached from the sidewalk and struck Vincel in the head and ran away, the witness told police.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the victim,” said Gerlach, who noted Cancer Treatment Centers have increased their security presence as a precautionary measure. “We continue to support the ongoing investigation of the Zion Police Department.”

A native of St. Louis, Vincel was a graduate of Clayton High School and Drury University and a former manager of a hair salon, according to her Facebook page.

Her funeral is noon Tuesday at St. Clemens of Rome Catholic Church in Des Peres, Missouri, said James Francis of the Lupton Chapel Funeral Home.

Elvis Presley' Girlfriend New Book

One night when we were home at Graceland, I woke up, and Elvis wasn’t in bed beside me. Knowing he was under the strong influence of his sleeping medication, I was immediately concerned, and so I went on a search-and-rescue mission. I walked all around the upstairs of Graceland, but I couldn’t find him anywhere. Finally, I peeked my head into Lisa Marie’s room, although I couldn’t imagine why he’d possibly be in there, as she wasn’t staying with us at the time. But there he was, lying on the little daybed in Lisa’s room that had once been used by the baby nurse and nanny. He was sprawled across the sofa, completely out of it, with his pajamas’ fly open, while a woman who was temporarily working at Graceland kissed him. I could see the back of her head moving, but it looked like he was asleep, or barely clinging to the edge of consciousness.

I cleared my throat, loudly. “Ahem!”

The girl jumped away from him, falling abruptly to the floor beside the daybed.

“Oh dear, Linda, this isn’t what it looks like,” she said.

Elvis struggled to open his eyes enough to look up and focus on me with great effort.

“You should’ve knocked,” he slurred.

“Should’ve knocked?” I sputtered. “I should have knocked?” I repeated incredulously. “I live here. I shouldn’t have to knock. Or walk in to find you kissing another girl.”

“I wasn’t kissing her,” he said. “She was kissing me.”

“Either way, I’m out,” I said.

The female employee slunk out as quickly as possible. I went to my dressing room and started packing. After Elvis had slept off most of the effects of his medications, he came ambling back into our bedroom suite area, where he spotted my suitcase. He seemed surprised.

“Where are you going?” he asked.

“I’m going to my house,” I said.

“That’s not why I bought you that house, so you could just leave me whenever you want,” he said.

“Well, I’m not going to walk in and see you kissing another girl, and have you tell me I should’ve knocked, when I live here,” I said. “I either live here, or I don’t live here.”

“You can’t leave,” he said.

“Watch me,” I said.

My clothes were packed. My suitcase was at the ready. Now I just had to muster all of my strength and self-possession and leave the man I loved

“I told you, you can’t leave,” he said, growing agitated. “You can’t leave me. I love you. I didn’t kiss her, she kissed me.”

When I didn’t immediately capitulate, and he realized from my demeanor that I might really leave him, he snapped. He pushed me in the direction away from the door. My suitcase was behind me, and I tripped over it onto the floor, landing on my backside. I wasn’t physically hurt, but I started crying, my sobbing audible and cathartic. Elvis stood there, momentarily stunned that he had pushed me down, I think. Then he began studying me. A bemused look overtook his expression, and then he started laughing.

“Why are you laughing?” I choked out through my tears. “I’m really mad. I’m crying here! Why are you laughing at me?”

“Honey, you just don’t have a face meant for crying,” he said. “Your beautiful face is always smiling, so when you cry, your little eyes get all red and swollen.”

“That just hurts my feelings even more,” I said.

“Look at your little face,” he said. “Go look in the mirror when you’re crying. You look comical. Your little eyes get swollen and red like little pitiful pig eyes, and you get this red runny nose. C’mere, baby.”

He sat right down on the floor with me and started petting me, teasingly, and loving me. Even though I didn’t want to be won over so easily, I couldn’t help myself. He snapped me right out of my anger. Just like that, I almost forgot why I was mad in the first place. Almost

Bargain brawl! Female shoppers pile in to huge fight in the middle of a Chicago Walmart

A massive fight that broke out inside an Illinois Walmart ended with a woman having her clothes ripped off.

The all-out brawl occurred inside the store in Crestwood, south of Chicago, and was all captured on video by a witness.

The fracas involved four women and was attempted to be stopped by a single male security guard, who got lost in the fight.

A woman at the center of the brawl had her top pulled down in the melee, exposing her breasts.

Another woman was then finally dragged away from the group by the security guard, though she continued to fight against him and scream.

It is unclear what started the argument that led to the brawl. Crestwood Police did not have records of any arrests.

The video was uploaded to YouTube last week and has received thousands of views.


My favorite part was the " single male security guard, who got lost in the fight". I picture him squished out flat on the floor like in an old Bugs Bunny cartoon. That city needs a community organizer

Even if I got it for full asking price, I'd have about $125,000 for renovations, maybe more. (Will probably make about $75k selling my condo) Even if I eventually hated living in a house this size, I should have no problem selling it for a profit in this area.

This film was extremely well directed, solidly acted, with spectacular photography- (It really looked like New York city in 1981), and yet somehow it was a -complete- dud.

I felt like NOTHING happened. I guess some might call it a character study, but I leave a character study film feeling like I viewed something wonderful, This film just sits there and never takes off. Two or three decent jumps.

Olympic Rower Henrik Rummel Is Fine With His Bulge Being Out There

We take our coverage of the Olympics seriously at Cosmo, and that means it includes everything from breaking medal updates to news on the hottest bodies out there. It's not without controversy. So we just want to hear it straight from you, what are your thoughts on the "objectification" of male athletes?

I suppose, in decent taste, it doesn't bother me. I don't think it would bother anyone that has been in these articles. One of my friends was in Elle's Top 20 Hottest Olympians or whatever, and he didn't feel violated or anything. I don't hear guys complaining about it. And I think why it would be considered OK for guys and not girls is because I don't think there is any real history of men being possessions and being exploited by another sex. That is my first guess why we feel differently about it.

Do guys ever talk about it? You mention your friend who was in Elle - are you guys like, "Oh, that's awesome" or do you give each other a hard time?

Oh yeah, when we find out about it, we will crack jokes. But also [he's] just a good-looking guy, so it's not like we are ripping on him.

How much does tone or intention matter?

As long as the people [involved] are fine with it - like, you can joke around with your friends, but as soon as the friend starts taking offense to it, it changes the tone. Guys don't take any offense to it at all and I don't think they mind at all. I think it also depends on the girl's side: If a men's magazine ran a thing like "Most Attractive Women of the Olympics," I think women would be fine with it - I imagine they would, I can't speak for women as a whole but that is my impression. However if it was like, "Top 20 Olympic Racks," I don't think that would go over well, right?

As Olympians, your bodies are your tools. Do you feel like you want to flaunt your body more because of how much work you have put into it?

Well, I put zero work into presenting my body! But by virtue of training for the Olympics, this is what it looks like - we rowers have great bodies, very toned muscles, slim waists … so I mean, I like the way I look. I don't know if "flaunting it" is the right [expression] but I like the way I look. Like any guy, I enjoy if I catch people catching glances. Not to be self-serving or anything, it doesn't happen a lot - but I like it.

I have been training for 16 years [but] I haven't exercised. Everything has been done to make myself a better rower. So it's going to be pretty interesting [now that I'm retired]. I haven't thought a lot about it but I imagine I am going to take workouts from my rowing background and apply them to other things like biking.

What about diet? Did you have a very specific eating regimen for training? Will you stick to something strict to maintain your physique?

[For rowers,] the best way I've heard someone explain it is that there is a balanced 2,000-calorie diet and then there's 4- or 5,000 calories a day extra that is the energy we need to just fuel our bodies. We eat a lot and I try to eat well - I try to avoid things that are quote-unquote "bad for you." In particular, in relationship to body fat, you don't want extra weight slowing you down; you want things that are going to build muscle.

I am not going to completely change what I eat. I will probably do more pancakes and waffles once in awhile for breakfast, but I don't think that my general approach to food will change much. After [the London Olympics], I took a couple of months off and it was interesting because at first, I just couldn't eat - I wasn't hungry at all. My appetite just completely left because I think I was so used to [eating as a way of] fueling my engine.

Would you say you have a lot of body insecurities?

I don't really know yet. I have always been very aware of my weight but I don't know what to think about how I look. It's more like, "Oh no, if I am eating crappy for a little bit, I will be 4 pounds heavier than I normally am and I will notice that and that's not good." I imagine that if I start getting fat, I am not going to like it very much.

Parents Fight Condo Development As It Would Put Kids In The Shade

The 38-storey mixed-use building slated to be built at Church and Wood Sts., at the southern end of the Church-Wellesley Village, would cast a shadow on the nearby Church Street Junior Public School.

“We know (sun) is important for the kids,” said Chris Moise, school trustee. “It helps your mood, it helps you learn. . . . It’s good for cognitive growth.”

“To remove any other opportunities for sunlight. . . . I think it’s almost a criminal act,” particularly in Canada’s northern climate, added local Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam.

Since the students are “bound to the school grounds,” Wong-Tam said, “the quality of living space for children cannot be compromised.”

Access to sunlight is “paramount,” said Lisa Fleischmann, whose daughter is starting Grade 2 at the school in September. It’s not just that it’s a shadow, she said, but it’s a big one.

“These kids don’t get enough sun as it is,” added Fleischmann, who is a board member of the school’s child-care centre. She explained the daycare operates year-round — often in the school’s playground — offering a day camp from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. throughout the summer.

These buildings are permanent, said Wong-Tam. “In perpetuity, are we confining children to study and to play and develop their best years in darkness?”

Do you agree? Should buildings NOT be built near school play yards as it would deprive kids of the sun?

Is Barry Jenkins' MOONLIGHT this year's Brokeback Mountain?

This looks like it has the potential to be brilliant. And it's from A24, the indie studio that's been killing it the last few years with Swiss Army Man, The Lobster, Room, Amy, A Most Violent Year, Obvious Child, Under the Skin etc.

[quote]The Barry Jenkins drama is based on the Tarell McCraney play 'In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue' and marks the big-screen debut of Janelle Monae. "At some point, you gotta decide for yourself who you gonna be," says Mahershala Ali in the trailer for Moonlight. "Can't let nobody make that decision for you."

[quote]Written and directed by Barry Jenkins, the drama from A24 and Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment follows a young boy named Chiron, who is coming of age in War on Drugs-era Miami. Based on the Tarell McCraney play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue, the story is told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain and beauty of falling in love, while grappling with his own sexuality.

[quote]The cast features Naomie Harris, Andre Holland, Trevante Rhodes, Alex R. Hibbert, Jaden Piner, Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome, as well as Janelle Monae in her big-screen debut.

[quote]Moonlight opens in select New York and Los Angeles theaters on Oct. 21, following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

Bra Company Boss Wants His Male Employees To Understand What It’s Like To Live With Large Breasts

Sometimes, being a woman can be tough. Painfully nauseous periods, carrying and birthing children, bras that stab you in the back, bras in general… Oh, if only men would know what we go through. Well, now a bra company’s CEO is giving his male employees a taste of what it’s like to be a woman.

PrimaDonna CEO Ignace Van Doorselaere, makes his male employees wear fake boobs, so they’d experience what it’s like to be a woman. “There is only one way for a man to realize what an E-cup feels like, and that is having an E-cup,” he says. So, since the average E-cup weighs around 2.2-3.5 lbs (1-1.5kg) per breast, Doorselaere makes his employees wear weights hung around their necks. And when the fake breasts start to hurt their backs and necks, is when they understand how important good support is…

Hillary Clinton Is Tossing a Lifeline to Down-Ballot GOPers

Donald Trump has made this election, like everything else, about Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton, happily skewering him as he blows up his campaign with ruinous attacks on fellow Republicans and myriad others, has zero problems with this. But critics on the left do, because by playing it safe Clinton is sending troubling if unsurprising signals about the agenda she will set as president, and also missing a historic opportunity to crush the Republican Party in a moment of acute vulnerability. Instead of aggressively making the case that Trump represents the worst of Republican greed and bigotry, she is inviting their leaders and donors to join her campaign en masse.

“He’s taken the Republican Party a long way from ‘Morning in America’ to ‘Midnight in America,’” Clinton warned in her convention speech, praising Ronald Reagan. She went on to peddle the class equivalent of “All Lives Matter,” pledging to “be a President for Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. For the struggling, the striving the successful. For all those who vote for me and for those who don’t. For all Americans together!”

It shouldn’t be a radical proposition to say that Henry Kissinger, Meg Whitman, Mark Cuban, Robert Kagan and Michael Bloomberg have no place in any political program seeking to make the US a better place. But yesterday, the campaign launched Together for America to coordinate a mounting outreach effort to the frightened legislators, national security hawks and rich people who have made things so horrible for so many here and around the world. It’s a country-first campaign conveyed through a stunning display of elite unity, pining for the lost days of Washington consensus politics instead of putting forward a substantive transformational agenda.

The strategy, as Carl Beijer writes, poses a more immediate electoral risk as well. Trump’s historic weakness as a candidate, he writes, “should create an extraordinary opportunity for the American liberal-left. As the standard-bearer for the Democratic party, Clinton is in a position to press this advantage against her political opposition and make them pay as high a price as possible for nominating such an unpopular candidate.”

That, of course, is not what’s happening. DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda complained that the Clinton campaign has requested that they not tie Trump to down-ballot Republicans, according to a Wikileaked email attributed to him and dated May 16. Instead of holding candidates responsible for nominating a monster that reflects the party’s worst, the campaign wanted to celebrate the fleeing Republicans and distinguish Trump as abnormal.

The Clinton campaign, Miranda charged, would force the DNC “to throw out our entire frame that the GOP made Trump through years of divisive and ugly politics. We would have to say that Republicans are reasonable, that the good ones will shun Trump.”

Clinton’s bid to forge an anti-Trump consensus is a reincarnation of what Sarah Palin dubbed “that hopey-changey stuff”: Obama’s rapturous promise that his charisma and the basic goodness of American people could transcend partisan rancor. Clinton, like Obama but minus the charisma, is running not so much as a Democrat but as a bipartisan tribune of democracy—this time against what’s perceived to be an unprecedented threat of authoritarianism and chaos.

She’s running not against the billionaire class, as Bernie Sanders did, but against one outrageous individual who purports to be a billionaire. It’s a negative campaign but a bad one: instead of demonizing the Republican Party agenda, with its fealty to corporate America and scapegoating of racial, religious and sexual minorities, it attacks that party’s apotheosis, Donald Trump, as an aberration who must be defeated for the sake of protecting democracy.

Obama set the tone at the convention, praising Ronald Reagan as an icon who Trump has defiled, and declaring that “America is already great.”

Critic's Notebook: Is Meryl Streep Coasting With Roles Like 'Florence Foster Jenkins'?

Poor Meryl. The critics have turned against her.


8:00 AM PDT 8/13/2016 by Sheri Linden

From 'Julie & Julia' to 'The Iron Lady,' 'Doubt' to 'August: Osage County' and now 'Florence Foster Jenkins,' Streep's career has turned into a parade of larger-than-life, Oscar-courting grand-dame roles. Is she selling her talent short?

There was a time when the burning question posed by Hollywood movies was not “DC or Marvel?” but “Meryl Streep: yea or nay?” With her Yale and New York theater bona fides, the actress hit the big screen as a preternatural talent and quickly began racking up awards. A 1981 Time cover proclaimed “Meryl Magic.”

But not everyone felt it.

For me, her early, much-lauded work in The French Lieutenant’s Woman and Sophie’s Choice was admirable in a museum-quality way, defined by a clinical precision that was more about performance than character revelation. It wasn’t until Silkwood that the power of her talent struck me. As the real-life title character, Streep seemed liberated, not just from period trappings and accent perfection, but from the capital-A acting that had kept her previous portrayals at a remove.

It’s her regular-girl roles — Defending Your Life, Postcards From the Edge, Adaptation, Dancing at Lughnasa, The Hours, A Prairie Home Companion — that continue to dazzle me, even as I’ve also come to appreciate her peerless knack for inhabiting larger-than-life characters.

At 67, Streep has been on a run of such outsize roles, from the delectable (Julie & Julia) to the imperious (Doubt) to the oxygen-sapping (August: Osage County) — all garnering best actress nominations in her long, storied relationship with Oscar. Even recent cameos, in Suffragette and, to a lesser extent, The Homesman, had a show-stopping grandness about them. Her latest performance, as the delightfully untalented Florence Foster Jenkins in Stephen Frears’ feature of the same name, makes grandiosity its very subject. It’s a perfect example of what’s indispensable about her, and also of what’s frustrating about a number of recent vehicles for her gifts.

Streep’s turn as the tone-deaf dowager is the bittersweet soul of the amiably cartoonish film. Her screeching approximations of light opera are so heartfelt that each deluded trill is a life story in miniature. But around her, the movie does little more than put reactions to her awful singing on a repeat cycle. Is there too much awe around the two grandes dames at the center of the production, Jenkins and Streep? A similar dynamic was at work in her previous lead role, as a singer of a very different stripe in Jonathan Demme’s Ricki and the Flash, a contrived comic drama gathered unpersuasively around a typically commanding performance.

Though the role doesn’t come with the prefab importance of another recent picture showcasing her portrayal of a historical figure, The Iron Lady, in many ways Florence Foster Jenkins feels just as hermetic as the Thatcher biopic. It’s a signed, sealed and delivered tribute that doesn’t want to dig too deep or give much room to character aspects that are unflattering or disturbing. It’s Streep’s dexterity that lets in the shadows and light. There’s something both touching and freeing in watching a performer known for her technical rigor hit the wrong notes with such gusto. Her ability to convey self-importance, vulnerability, yearning and delusion in a single tortured melody is exhilarating. It makes you wish she’d bring that fluency to something in a minor or more intimate key, a story that strips away the bells and whistles.

Russia just announced that it's sending humans to the moon

October 29, 2015

Before 2030, Russia plans to land its first cosmonauts on the moon, and Europe wants a piece of the action. They're a little late for the great space race of the 1960s, but the mission is an admirable push for the reignited interest in manned deep-space travel.

On Tuesday, at a space and technology conference in Moscow, the head of Roscosmos Energia — Russia's version of NASA — announced: "A manned flight to the moon and lunar landing is planned for 2029."

And the European Space Agency, which made history last year by landing the first spacecraft on a comet, is teaming up.

"We have an ambition to have European astronauts on the moon," Bérengère Houdou, head of the lunar-exploration group at ESA's European Space Research and Technology Center, recently told BBC News. "There are currently discussion at international level going on for broad cooperation on how to go back to the moon."

Russia and Europe have expressed interest in establishing a permanent base on the moon, and they have already begun taking the fist steps toward this goal.

Last month, Roscosmos announced that it will send a lander, Luna 25, to the moon's south pole in 2024. After touchdown, the lander will investigate the lunar surface for future lunar bases.

The Luna 25 mission was initially proposed in 1997 and has since suffered a number of delays, but it seems that with Europe's aid the mission could finally get the jump-start it needs. Construction on the spacecraft has already begun, Tech Insider reported.

This collaborative effort is a welcomed contrast to the lonely space race of the mid-20th century. While Europe and Russia raise their collective eyes to the moon, NASA continues its quest for a farther, more dangerous mission: Mars.

Montel Williams Blasts Donald Trump: 'A Racist Is as a Racist Does'

Aug 25, 2016

Television personality Montel Williams calls it like he sees it, and the 2016 presidential election is no exception.

“A racist is as a racist does,” said Williams of Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump. “This racist has done enough to prove who is he truly is.”

On this week’s episode of “Powerhouse Politics” podcast with ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl and ABC News Political Director Rick Klein, Williams accused Trump of delivering a “false invitation” to African-American voters.

“This false invitation for African-American representation in the Trump campaign has been equal to the false invitation for African-American participation, minority participation, in the Republican Party for the last 20 years,” explained Williams.

When asked why he believes Trump's direct appeal to the African-American community is false, Williams replied, “Are you kidding me? Seriously, do you really believe that?”

He continued: “It’s like, David Duke right now saying, ‘Hey, I want to get these black people, come on in my house. Forget everything I’ve said in the past.’

“It really has done more to make sure that the primary people he was speaking in front of would be less apt to say, ‘Oh, he is a racist,’” he added. “You cannot go back and now retract your statements and your past to try to say that you’re not what you have been.”

Williams also cast doubt on Trump’s ability to lead the country, explaining that he is a direct threat to the United States “without any question.”

“He’s shown the fact that he does not have the capacity to even understand international politics,” Williams said. “He’s shown a clear direction in his thinking that it’s OK to commit war crimes.”

That is why Williams, a longtime conservative, will be voting for Hillary Clinton in November -- although he does not agree with all of Clinton’s actions, including her handling of sensitive information as secretary of state, which he calls an “abomination.”

But he just can’t pull the lever for Trump.

“I think [Trump] has done it to himself. I just cannot vote for him,” said Williams.

Get ready for Manbang

It may not be the Gilmore Girls, but soon North Korea will be able to stream its own state-sponsored equivalent of Netflix NFLX -0.79%, according to an announcement from the country’s state broadcast television earlier this week. The news represents a startling development in light of the near-total lack of functioning Internet in the country, and it’s unclear if the streaming service will actually come to pass or if its supposed creation is just an inscrutable, propagandistic move by Kim Jong-un’s authoritarian government.

In theory, North Koreans will now be able to stream programs using a set-top box called “Manbang,” according to NK News, a U.S.-based publication that covers North Korea. They could watch up to five different channels, watch state-sponsored documentaries, get updates on Kim Jong-un’s activities, and read newspaper articles from the state newspaper Rodong Sinmun. The programming would be entirely state-run and no in any way related to streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime available in the rest of the world.

It’s hard to tell if the technology at play would be Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) or Video On Demand (VOD), based NK News‘ description of the televised announcement. IPTV involves using the Internet to stream regular cable or satellite television in real time. Using IPTV, say, you could watch the Olympics on NBC as it happens. VOD, by contrast, is more interactive and lets you make selections from a library of programs, like when you pick a show on Netflix and watch it when you want.

The mysterious part of North Korea’s claim to debut streaming video is that there is almost no Internet in the country, and what is available is tightly controlled. Mobile phones have traditionally been the way that people in developing or under-resourced countries access the Internet. North Korea is home to 25.2 million people, according to the World Bank, but only 3 million people (or 12% of the population) have domestic cell phone plans. None of those plans can be used to call internationally. By contrast, 59% of people in the Congo have a mobile phone.

North Koreans who do smuggle in unauthorized mobile phones to access the global Internet risk being sent to prison camps, according to Amnesty International. North Korea’s state security even has a special branch called “Bureau 27″ that uses special equipment to detect illegal cell phone use.

#GayMediaSoWhite after Frank Ocean's album is ignored by gay publications

Frank Ocean's 'Blonde' release was hardly covered in gay magazines — why?

(...) However, reading many major gay publications, you wouldn't have any idea that one of the most visible, queer POC artist of our generation — an artist who by many accounts completely changed the game for queer celebrities — had returned.

Neither the Advocate Magazine, Out Magazine, nor the U.K.'s Gay Times covered any of Ocean's recent projects upon their release. Gay Times, which has a music section on its site, hadn't posted a single article on any Ocean-related content until Monday morning, and it eventually came in the form of a short stub about a poem from Ocean's Boys Don't Cry that was gaining coverage across the web. Many fans couldn't help but see this as yet one more piece of evidence in the ongoing conversation surrounding #GayMediaSoWhite. Twitter user Philip Van De Kamp noticed the seemingly obvious gaffes of each major queer publication, tweeting Sunday morning, "Hi Grammy-winning LGBT POC, Frank Ocean released two albums. Whenever you have time after brunch," tagging each site's social media profiles.

Users quickly hopped onto the thread to offer that these publications might not have had editorial staff available to cover the releases throughout the weekend. However, that excuse doesn't explain why Ocean's Endless wasn't at least covered Thursday or Friday.

Gay Times found plenty of time on Thursday to post about Lady Gaga's new single, which isn't due until September. (...)

Hunter Dad Boasts 8-Year-Old Daughter Bit into 'Warm, Quivering' Deer Heart

A hunter boasted on social media about his daughter’s first kill—a young deer—and the fact that she took a bite out of the dead animal's “warm, quivering heart.”

The post, submitted to the group NZ Woman Hunters, was accompanied by photos, including a closeup of the 8-year-old tearing into the deer's bloody flesh. It was accompanied by another picture of the proud dad and his young apprentice posing over the deer's corpse, as well as the gun used to make the fatal shot.

According to the outlet NZ stuff, beaming father Johnny Yuile is also a New Zealand police officer. He told the local outlet that though this is the first time his daughter had successfully shot a deer, she has been accompanying him on hunting trips since she was a baby.

“She's been coming out with me since she was eight months old with a front pack,” Yuile stated.

The 8-year-old said she enjoyed the outing. She added that she was inspired to sample the bloody deer heart after watching her uncle partake.

"I saw my uncle bite the heart so I thought I might bite it too,” she told the NZ Stuff. "It tasted quite nice."

Seattle Minimum Wage study confirms elementary economic logic

Since the wage hike only affected the city of Seattle, the outlying areas provided perfect testing grounds.

One of the foundations of economics- that raising the cost of an input reduces the amount used- was proven, once again.

From the study-

In a region where all low-wage workers, including those in Seattle, have enjoyed access to more jobs and more hours, Seattle’s low-wage workers show some preliminary signs of lagging behind similar workers in comparison regions.

The minimum wage appears to have slightly reduced the employment rate of low-wage workers by about one percentage point. It appears that the Minimum Wage Ordinance modestly held back Seattle’s employment of low-wage workers relative to the level we could have expected.

Hours worked among low-wage Seattle workers have lagged behind regional trends, by roughly four hours per week, on average.

Low-wage individuals working in Seattle when the ordinance passed transitioned to jobs outside Seattle at an elevated rate compared to historical patterns.

Australian mother dresses her son in blackface for a costume competition ... and wins!

An Australian mother who painted her son's skin black for a school costume competition has caused outrage for a moment she described as a "parenting win".

The photo, which was posted on the Facebook wall of mummy-blogger Constance Hall, has prompted widespread condemnation online.

In her original post, the mother said her son's school was running a Book Week competition, where kids were required to dress as their favourite book character. She said her son had wanted to look like AFL footballer Nic Naitanui - even though that's completely irrelevant to the "book" theme. "I was a little worried about painting him. (So many politically correct extremists these days) he is pastey White (sic) and if I just sent him in a wig and footy gear, no one would tell who he was," she posted on Hall's wall.

"So I grew a set of balls and painted my boy brown and he looked fanf....ingtastic."

The Perth-based mother said that despite her Facebook friends telling her it was a "horrible idea", her son won the parade.

"Parenting win," she posted.

In an unusual turn of events, an exalted Islamist couple both in their 60s were expelled from their party on Monday after reports said they were caught having sex on a beach.

The pair both serve as vice presidents of Morocco's Islamic Unity and Reform Movement (MUR), which is the ideological wing of the Islamic Justice and Development Party (JDP).

According to India Today, the party has now expelled the pair.

They could face trial for adultery, as Mr Benhammad is married, but Ms Nejjar is said to be widowed.

Bono e-mails Hillary Clinton and asks for a favor...

Yes, really. It's not the opening line to a joke. Pretty funny.

Bono’s ego: the final frontier. Following the release of new information, galactic cartographers are invited to get in touch to plot the revised boundaries of the U2 frontman’s self-regard. Current indications place the northern border of this vast entity in low Earth orbit. Specifically, in the International Space Station.

According to the latest batch of Hillary Clinton’s private State department emails to be released, Bono is a donor to the Clinton Foundation, presumably as part of his pro bono work. Philanthropy need not always be its own reward and, in the course of discussions, Bono seems to have made an off-topic request to Hillary’s people. As a Clinton Foundation executive puts it in a joint email to both Hillary’s top aide, Huma Abedin, and Bill’s equivalent adviser: “Bono wants to do linkup with the International Space Station on every show during the tour this year.” Well, of course he does.

“I’m trying to figure out who the best contact is to talk to at Nasa, or the congressional committee on science and technology,” the charity executive wonders. “Any ideas?” Alas, both aides replied with the same phrase – “no clue” – and nothing more was done. However, U2’s 2009 U2360 concert tour did end up featuring a recorded video segment filmed with various ISS crew. On stage, Bono would credit them with “figuring out how our little planet exists in this cosmos we call home”.

But in many ways, we should also credit them with figuring out something ultimately more important. Namely, that there is no escape from Bono. Not only was U2’s album automatically installed on every iTunes user’s library a couple of years ago, but he is willing to pursue you across the galaxy to enforce promotion. There is only one thing more horrifying than the suggestion that in space, no one can hear you scream. And that is the possibility that in space, no one can hear Bono.

There always seemed to be one kid who's parents bought him retarded toys and worse, he didn't seem to know it.

Like my friends and I were all playing with our "Tinker Toys" building great things when Brent, as this boy's name was, brought over his "Lincoln Logs." Of course we shunned him.

Where Did You Grow Up...

...and where have you lived most of your adult life?

Me: Born and raised in Sonoma, CA. Attended Stanford in Palo Alto and then lived and worked in San Francisco for 12 years.

My partner and I moved to Madison, WI 14 years ago and are still here. I doubt that we'll move, as we love Madison.

Rush Limbaugh warns ‘Obama regime’ is sending government-paid lesbian farmers to invade red states (NOT THE ONION)

In his latest crazy on-air rant, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh accused “the Obama Regime” of trying to unleash on red states a scandalous scourge of lesbian farmers.

“What they're trying to do is convince lesbians to become farmers,” he told listeners.

There’s a specific sinister motive to the sapphic shift, Limbaugh claimed: Ruining conservative voting blocs.

Shock jock Rush Limbaugh warned listeners of the danger of government-paid lesbian farmers. (JULIE SMITH/ASSOCIATED PRESS) "They are trying to bust up one of the last geographically conservative regions in the country; that's rural America," he said.

Rush Limbaugh's ratings appear to be sagging In fact, it may even be part of Obama’s plot to take away your guns.

“Rural America happens to be largely conservative. Rural America is made up of self-reliant, rugged individualist types. They happen to be big believers in the Second Amendment,” he said.

Lesbian farmers could be a threat to conservative areas, according to Limbaugh. Lesbian farmers could be a threat to conservative areas, according to Limbaugh. (NATHAN4847/GETTY IMAGES/ISTOCKPHOTO) “So here comes the Obama Regime with a bunch of federal money and they're waving it around, and all you gotta do to get it is be a lesbian and want to be a farmer and they'll set you up. I'm like you; I never before in my life knew that lesbians wanted to be farmers.

"I never knew that lesbians wanted to get behind the horse and the plow and start burrowing. I never knew it. But apparently enough money [made] it happen, and the objective here is to attack rural states."

Limbaugh’s atrocious Aug. 17 rant — which just started gaining traction online over a week later — was sparked by the Iowa LGBT Rural Summit. For the Des Moines event, the USDA collaborated with LGBT groups to educate the gay community about a variety of policies, including “rural housing loans, community facility grants and bullying,” according to the event website.

The Washington Free Beacon fanned the flames of lunacy with an Aug. 16 article titled “Feds Holding Summits for Lesbian Farmers.”

“The all-day summit will teach lesbian and transgender hillbillies how to get subsidies from the government like rural housing loans and ‘community facility grants,'” the conservative paper wrote.

Limbaugh took that and ran with it.

“You sit in there and laugh. Okay, go ahead and laugh at it, but I'm telling you what they're doing,” he said.

Twitter took the shock jock’s advice and had a nice hard laugh at his expense.

“#limbaugh says federally paid lesbian farmers could invade your town! And we're growing zucchini, people! Lots and lots of zucchini,” tweeted comic Dana Goldberg.

“Rush Limbaugh is back on hillbilly heroin, again, Lesbian farmers. Won't they get dirt in their Birkenstock's? Twit,” said another Twitter user.

“Rush Limbaugh is correct, btw, after work I head straight for the fields. Can't stop won't stop,” wrote journalist Meredith Bennett-Smith.

Staten Island boy, 13, kills self after Holy Angels Catholic Academy staff ‘didn’t do anything’ to stop bullying

Before he took his own life, Daniel Fitzpatrick, taunted and bullied, wrote a final, heartbreaking letter lamenting that nearly no one tried to help him. The 13-year-old Staten Island boy, mercilessly badgered over his weight, grades and his innocent heart, pleaded to his school for help.

But teacher after teacher at Holy Angels Catholic Academy — the principal, too — turned a deaf ear, refusing to intervene, he said in the letter that was never sent. Finally, overwhelmed by the torment, Daniel hanged himself, his family said.

He was found dead late Thursday by his older sister in the attic of his family home, a belt wrapped around his neck.

“I gave up,” the teen scrawled on two sides of a single sheet of paper. “The teachers . . . they didn’t do anything,” he said, pouring his heart onto the page.

Trump Olive Branch To Black Voters "What the hell do you have to lose?”

Making remarks directed at black voters, Trump asked: “What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump?”

“What do you have to lose?” Trump asked repeatedly. “You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”

Trump said black voters have “got nothing to lose” by choosing him over Democrat Hillary Clinton, who has focused her efforts in Michigan’s March 8 primary on turning out African American voters in Detroit and Flint but lost narrowly to U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

“One thing we know for sure is that if you keep voting for the same people, you will keep getting the same, exactly the same result,” Trump said.

Ryan Lochte's presence is desired by Brazilian authorities


Thu August 25, 2016

It looks like US swimmer Ryan Lochte will soon have to decide whether to go back to Brazil.

Brazilian police have asked a judge to issue a summons for the 12-time Olympic medalist to appear in a Brazilian court and answer accusations he filed a false police report, Clemente Braune, a commissioner with the Special Tourist Police in Rio, said Thursday.

Lochte can opt to send a lawyer and does not need to appear in court. But were he not to appear, Lochte would lose the opportunity to negotiate a fine before charges were pressed, Braune said.

If convicted, Lochte, 32, could face between one to six months in jail, although the judge could choose to levy a fine instead. There would be no negotiations in that case, Braune explained.

Lochte would also have the opportunity to appeal any decision.

Jeff Ostrow, Ryan Lochte's attorney, told CNN he has not heard from Brazilian authorities.


Lochte has apologized for poor behavior during an incident at a Rio gas station on the morning of August 14. Lochte told Olympics broadcaster NBC on the day of the altercation that he and three other swimmers were robbed at gunpoint after the cab they were in was pulled over.

The other swimmers -- Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and James Feigen -- have since publicly shared their version of the events with stories that differ from Lochte's original tale and essentially match surveillance video released by Brazilian police.

Authorities said there was no robbery, but security guards had drawn guns and stopped the swimmers from leaving after they vandalized the gas station. The money was to pay for items that were broken, they said.

Feigen said in a statement this week that he was questioned by a detective later that day and gave a statement in which he left out parts about the swimmers urinating behind the building and Lochte pulling down a framed poster.

Days later, as scrutiny on Lochte's story increased, police questioned Feigen again. In his second statement, he gave more details, he said.

The court then proposed he pay a $31,250 fine and do 15 days of community service, Feigen said. He rejected the offer and the judge increased the amount to $46,875, the swimmer said.

Feigen's attorney negotiated a fine of $10,800 and the swimmer was given back his passport and allowed to leave Brazil.

Lochte told NBC's Matt Lauer that he had been interviewed by police while he was still in Rio. He also changed his version of the story slightly to include that the swimmers had stopped to use the bathroom and the incident occurred as the quartet was going back to their cab.

In a second interview with Lauer, he said he had "over-exaggerated" when describing the events of the morning to NBC and others.

The four-time Olympian also faces potential discipline from the US Olympic Committee and the International Olympic Committee.

Bug Attack on NYC Subway!!

Straphangers go berserk after woman tosses bugs in subway car! Video at link!

A crazed woman trying to sell crickets and worms on a D train suddenly threw them all over the crowded car, sending it into chaos during the evening commute.

The women walked into the train car at about 6 p.m. on Wednesday and and made a pitch to passengers to try to get them to buy the chirping insects and wrigglers.

A group of teenagers pushed her, prompting her to freak out and toss the box of pests into the air, said witnesses. The straphangers then started screaming and crying, and all ran down to one end of the car.
