Despite identifying as straight, Gaelic football star Cathal McCarron agreed to do gay porn in 2014.
was an attempt to pay off his debts as he struggled with a chronic gambling addiction. Two days later, he had spent all the money at the bookmakers. In his new autobiography, the now 28-year-old Tyrone GAA star writes how his addiction led him to appearing in a scene where he jerked off and had sex with a man for cash. He said he had initially responded to an ad for male models but when he arrived at the offices in London, it was clear they were doing porn. McCarron said the producers told him the video would only be available on a pay-per-view basis in US hotels and accepted the offer. While they first offered £200 to be filmed urinating, he agreed to have sex with a guy as both the bottom and top for £3,000. Why? He said by the age of 21 he had stolen almost £200,000 to feed his gambling habit, mostly from his father. ‘When the filming was over I felt physically sick, disgusted that I had allowed myself to sink into such an abyss of degradation and humiliation,’ he says in the book. His porn appearance was quickly outed in the press. Following this, he went to rehab back in Ireland. He then returned to Gaelic Football and was recently nominated for an All-Star in 2015.

About six months ago, my company hired a guy for our Corporate Events team who is super femme. I'd say he's probably late 20s.
The "bros" who work in my department (Product Dev) are fascinated by him, not necessarily in a good way. They've basically made him into a meme with stories about things he's said, done or worn. They will have him come by and sort of mock him, asking him about his handbag (he carries a woman's tote rather than a briefcase or backback) or whether he thinks that Selena Gomez is more "fierce" than Arianna Grande-- shit like that. He seems to love the attention, so I have not said anything.
Last night a bunch of us went out after work and they started on the femme guy again, so I asked them: you know that me and Jackson are gay and you all are completely cool with that, you don't mock us, you hang out with us, you hang out with Jackson and his boyfriend. Why does this guy freak you out so much?
And they all looked at me like I was dense and basically said "you guys are normal. You act like everyone else, you just like guys. But that guy is a freak." (FWIW, Neither Jackson nor I are what DLers consider "masc bros"-- we're both probably more nerdy engineer types, but neither of us are particularly femme or fashionable.) It also came out that they didn't consider Jackson or I to be like the femme and one of them even said "like you would never date a guy like that, would you?"
I think that kind of sums up the state of gay acceptance in 2016: very flaming gay men are still considered "freaks" but the rest of us seem to be integrating into the mainstream. (Granted this is Los Angeles and a mostly 20something crew, so they're ahead of the mainstream.)

Just because someone wants to help and just because he shows it, that doesn't mean that he is a cunt, or a fraud.

Is anyone else following this news from the UK? After one football player came forward about having been sexually abused as a boy by a youth soccer coach, more men came forward shortly afterward saying they were also abused by coach and talent scouts. I think the current number of victims is about a dozen and after the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) set up a designated line to report past incidents, they received several hundred call. I believe three men reported the same coach abusing them at different times. Authorities think the abuse may have been far-ranging and involved many more victims and abusers, quite a few of the latter who were protected by sports officials.

Prime Minister Modi announced 2 weeks ago that all "large bills" (1,000R=$15) will be worthless after 2016. Since virtually all transactions are cash this has created chaos. The ostensible reason for the ban is the to stop corruption, but it has instead created a massive mafia of money laundering. Commerce has come to a virtual halt, and tourists are trapped with no access to cash.
When I was there in 2013 I was shocked at how primitive it was, and now it is worse. Unless something happens and this directive is repealed I wonder how long Modi will survive.

From Joan' book, No Bed of Roses :
I arrived at Vivien Leigh's flat in Eaton Square, having lent her my New York apartment while she was playing in Ivanov with John Gielgud on Broadway. Vivien was a cat fancier. I have an acute olfactory sense. She evidently did not. The flat reeked of feline proximity. So did the housekeeper. The hall coat closet contained a box of Kitty Litter that had not been changed in weeks. When the housekeeper, with whom the cat slept, brought my 5:30 a.m. breakfast tray each morning, I could scarcely force down the food. Her white uniform sent waves of odor toward my bed. I gagged my way to the Elstree studio in a hired Daimler.
Since I had left Vivien with my excellent Jamaican housekeeper in New York, had left out all my linens and silver for her use, I saw no reason why I should leave the Alfa Romeo on the street in Eaton Square when her garage was unoccupied. I rang the New York apartment and explained my problem to Vivien, asking for housing of the convertible. "You are not to use my gar-rahge," she regally commanded, and hung up tlie phone. My phone! This was not the last encounter I was to have with Lady Olivier.
I had long since vacated Vivien's London flat. Her New York show had now closed, but she had stayed on in my apartment. "What am I to do, throw my luggage into the street?" the disgruntled Lady Olivier coldly queried the doctor. As she was leaving next day for Jamaica anyway, he arranged for her luggage to be stored in the apartment until she could pick it up en route to England. Weeks later a mutual friend put Vivien on the phone, cautioning me that she was not well, had regretted her unfriendliness, and wanted to apologize. Over the phone, she dripped icicles just the same.
The last contact I had with her ladyship was through the F.B.L It seems she had an 6tagere filled with valuable watches that Laurence Olivier had given her. When I arrived at Eaton Square, I had had the housekeeper put away anything of value. I never saw the watches, but now they were missing. Mother, stopping at my New York apartment on her way to California, was interrogated. My maid, too. No one had seen the watches The F.B.I, gentlemen smiled and shook their heads. They may have been through this before with the actress.
Despite the fact that I never received a report from the F.B.L, or from Vivien, as to whether they were found or not, a New York columnist printed that I had stolen the valuable timepieces.

Donald Trump's old campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, would like us to treat the president-elect's facts with all the seriousness of a guy at a bar who is two PBRs deep, riffing on current events. And that's not really that hyperbolic.
Here's what Lewandowski, who is now a CNN contributor, said Thursday night at Harvard's 2016 campaign postmortem forum:
"This is the problem with the media. You guys took everything that Donald Trump said so literally. The American people didn’t. They understood it. They understood that sometimes, when you have a conversation with people, whether it’s around the dinner table or at a bar, you’re going to say things, and sometimes you don’t have all the facts to back it up."
So we should basically take nothing Trump says at face value. Or assume that his facts are, um, factual. Got it.
The brazen comment echoes what Lewandowski's fellow pro-Trump CNN pundit, Scottie Nell Hughes, said Wednesday on the Diane Rehm Show:
"One thing that's been interesting this campaign season to watch is that people that say facts are facts -- they're not really facts. Everybody has a way -- it's kind of like looking at ratings or looking at a glass of half-full water. Everybody has a way of interpreting them to be the truth or not true. There's no such thing, unfortunately anymore, of facts. And so Mr. Trump's tweet, amongst a certain crowd -- a large part of the population -- are truth. When he says that millions of people illegally voted, he has some facts -- amongst him and his supporters -- and people believe they have facts to back that up. Those that do not like Mr. Trump, they say that those are lies and there's no facts to back it up."
I write all of the below recognizing that it will be dismissed by Trump supporters as The Media Not Getting It and as proof of Lewandowski's and Hughes's theses. Trump won, and in the minds of supporters like Lewandowski and Hughes, that win vindicated this kind of nihilistic approach to the facts and to taking people literally. (I would certainly quibble with that notion, given how unpopular Trump is in spite of his win and the fact that the election was very close.)
That said: Whatever you think of just how literally Trump should be taken, this approach to the truth is an almost perfect cop-out for basically anything Trump says or does as president. His team is basically asking for a Get Out of Jail Free card that can be redeemed over and over again by the single most powerful person in the country.
This approach from the Trump campaign has created an adversarial relationship with the media, for sure. That's because the media's No. 1 obligation is to the truth, and when Trump says something that clearly isn't true, our first impulse is to say, "That's not true!" As it should be. Lewandowski and Hughes don't like this, because their favored candidate's grasp of the facts is not good.

Oh we're really fucked. This guy is ANCIENT. He looks ready to press the nuke button at any time.
Donald Trump was expecting a very different answer when he asked retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, at a meeting last month, for his views on the use of waterboarding. Misled, perhaps, by Mattis’s nickname, “Mad Dog,” and his reputation as a hard-charging commander of American forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, the president-elect expected Mattis to echo his own loudly expressed view, that in dealing with terrorists “You have to fight fire with fire.”
Instead, Trump recalled, “He said — I was surprised — he said, ‘I’ve never found it to be useful.’ He said, ‘I’ve always found, give me a pack of cigarettes and a couple of beers, and I do better with that than I do with torture.’”
That anecdote says at least two things about the man who, as Trump announced at a rally Thursday, is his choice to head the Defense Department, and if confirmed by the Senate, would be the highest- ranking military veteran in the post since the five-star Gen. George Marshall in 1951: He thinks for himself, and he is unafraid to speak his mind — even at the risk of alienating the future president.
“We are going to appoint ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis as our secretary of defense. But we’re not announcing it until Monday, so don’t tell anybody,” Trump told his supporters in Cincinnati, Ohio. “Keep it inside the room,” he added jokingly.
Mattis, who served in the Marines from 1969 until his retirement in 2013, represents a big change from the current secretary of defense, the bookish Ashton Carter, a former Harvard professor who was trained as a physicist. But he is also nothing like the other high-profile general tapped by Trump for an important national security post, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the hypercombative choice for national security adviser, who wrote in a tweet earlier this year: “Fear of Muslims is RATIONAL.”
Mattis is a complicated figure, with a reputation as a supremely competent commander, aggressive in the pursuit of American interests. In one meeting in 2011, Mattis, then head of U.S. Central Command, pushed for what would have been a controversial airstrike against a gathering of al-Qaida leaders in Yemen. He was overruled by Homeland Security Adviser John Brennan on the grounds that it risked killing some militants who were not designated targets for “direct action.” When Mattis retired two years later, it was widely understood that he had clashed with his superiors over his desire for a more confrontational posture toward Iran.
“I have a lot of secrets, and I plan to take them to my grave,” he told a reporter once. “But I will say there are a few people over there” — in Yemen — “who won’t be collecting their 401(k)s.”
But he is also an exceptionally serious, well-read and thoughtful commander, who went to battle with his well-thumbed copy of the “Meditations” of the Stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius. (His other mentors included Sun Tzu and von Clausewitz.) “Thanks to my reading,” he wrote in an email as he was preparing to deploy to Iraq in 2004, “I have never been caught flat-footed by any situation, never at a loss for how any problem has been addressed (successfully or unsuccessfully) before. It doesn’t give me all the answers, but it lights what is often a dark path ahead.”
He is an ascetic, a “warrior monk,” who has never married or — according to retired Gen. John Allen, who served under Mattis as the head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan — even owned a television set. Like many who served under Mattis, Allen is intensely loyal to him. “No combat commander was ever better served than I was by my friend and commander, Jim Mattis,” Allen wrote in an email Thursday.

Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager and a potential candidate for a role in the White House under Trump, said New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet “should be in jail” for publishing pages from Trump’s 1995 tax documents earlier this year.
Politico reported Lewandowski went after Baquet during an ugly post-election forum at Harvard University on Thursday.
“We had one of the top people at The New York Times come to Harvard University and say, ‘I’m willing to go to jail to get a copy of Donald Trump’s taxes so I can publish them,’” Lewandowski said, according to Politico. “Dean Baquet came here and offered to go to jail — you’re telling me, he’s willing to commit a felony on a private citizen to post his taxes, and there isn’t enough scrutiny on the Trump campaign and his business dealings and his taxes?”
“It’s egregious,” Lewandowski added. “He should be in jail.”
Lewandowski and Baquet have traded barbs before. In early October, just after the Times published the tax documents, Lewandowski suggested that Trump sue the Times “into oblivion.”
“There is no national security interest to Donald Trump’s taxes,” Lewandowski argued while also questioning whether the documents were accurate. (The Times verified the documents with Jack Mitnick, an accountant who handled Trump’s taxes for years. Mitnick called the documents “legit.”)
In a late October interview with the Financial Times, Baquet criticized CNN for hiring Lewandowski, calling the move “outrageous” and describing Lewandowski as a “political shill.” Baquet said both CNN and Fox News’ coverage of the 2016 presidential election was “bad for democracy and those institutions.”
CNN President Jeff Zucker received further backlash about Lewandowski’s time with the company at the Harvard post-election forum Thursday. According to Politico, as Zucker was criticized at the forum, Lewandowski attempted to defend himself, “insisting he was adding value to the CNN airwaves.”

Rep. Keith Ellison formally announced his candidacy to be chairman of the Democratic National Committee. “I am proud to announce my candidacy for Chair of the Democratic National Committee, and if given the opportunity to serve, I will work tirelessly to make the Democratic Party an organization that brings us together and advances an agenda that improves people’s lives,” Ellison said in a statement released Monday afternoon.
The Minnesota congressman had been laying the groundwork to run for DNC chairman even before the deep losses Democrats suffered on Election Day. In recent days, his efforts have begun to come into public view. Ellison, who played a prominent role in Sen. Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, has already been endorsed for chairman by Sanders and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid, as well as Rep. Raul Grijalva, co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Sen. Elizabeth Warren also said.
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean has already announced that he’s running for DNC chairman and the field of candidates is likely to expand. Last week, Dean argued that Ellison couldn’t adequately serve as both DNC chairman and as a member of Congress. “You cannot do this job and sit in a political office at the same time. It’s not possible,” Dean said in an interview on MSNBC. That view is shared by critics of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s tenure as DNC chairwoman. But Ellison’s supporters insist that the Minnesota congressman can juggle both jobs.
Ellison was the first Muslim ever elected to Congress. Get ready for the usual meltdowns if he gets the job.

I know Melissa McCarthy is a big mega star, but it is strange they would leave her OUT of the credits.
They could have easily given her the end as in "And Melissa McCarthy as Sookie"
But she is completely wiped out of the opening credits. Or maybe that was her request? That she just be un-credited so her celebrity wouldn't overshadow this revival?
Explain why she has been existed out of the opening credits of the reboot of Gilmore Girls.

An employee of the Cirque du Soleil show Luzia was killed Tuesday night, the victim of what authorities describe as an "industrial accident."
San Francisco Police Department spokesperson Officer Grace Gatpandan says that officers were called to the corner of Third Street and Terry A. Francois Boulevard, the scene of the scheduled Cirque du Soleil performance, at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, on reports of an industrial accident. When they arrived, they found a male employee of the show suffering from "traumatic, life-threatening injuries," she says.
He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where he later died, Gatpandan says.
According to a statement released by Cirque du Soleil, the man, a technician on the show, was struck by a telescopic lift. His identity has yet to be publicly released, they said, pending notification of his family.

In a stunning development, the Bureau of Labor Statistics just revealed that the US unemployment rate unexpectedly dropped to 4.6% in November. This is the lowest level since August 2007.
Economists were expecting the rate to be unchanged from October’s 4.9%.
“The trend in employment growth remains more than strong enough to keep the unemployment rate trending down,” Jim O’Sullivan, of High Frequency Economics, said.
Some of this decline was due to the 446,000 Americans that dropped out of the labor force, which brought the labor force participation rate down to 62.7% during the month from 62.8% a month ago.
“The drop in unemployment is statistically significant, unusually, but we’d still treat it with caution,” Ian Shepherdson, of Pantheon Macroeconomics, said. “The labor force jumped sharply in the third quarter, but the increases always looked unsustainable and now appear to be reversing, at least in part.”
Unemployment rates fell for all ethnicities except for Hispanic/Latino, which was unchanged at 5.7% for the month. Those with less than a high school diploma saw their unemployment rate jump to 7.9% from 7.3% a month ago.
To be a bit more precise, the unemployment rate fell to 4.640% in November from 4.876% in October.
Other employment data continue to reflect a healthy economy with lots of job growth. On Wednesday, ADP’s employment report showed that the US economy created around 216,000 jobs in November. Monthly surveys from the Richmond Fed, Dallas Fed, and NY Fed all signaled ongoing job growth.
It seems Trump will be inheriting an economy that’s in great shape.

Being cut myself, and having always heard the loud cry of "no teeth!" as the golden rule of oral, I was quite surprised when he directed me to pull the foreskin all the way forward and GENTLY nibble on the part of it on the underside of his penis.
My question is, since the gentleman above clearly isn't the great love of my life...do I add this nibbling technique to my oral skills set as they apply to uncut dick (e.g. working it forward and backward, pulling it forward and "cleaning" underneath with my tongue, all of that)? Or will most uncut guys start yelling if I use teeth?
I'm afraid I'll lose someone hot if I give a terrible blowjob.

This might turn into a landmark case:
A lawsuit filed by a South Bend math teacher could help determine the future of civil rights for gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual people in the workplace.
Kim Hively formerly was a part-time instructor at Ivy Tech Community College in South Bend. In a lawsuit, she claims she repeatedly applied for and was passed over for full-time positions at the college because she is a lesbian. She also claims Ivy Tech ultimately ceased providing her courses to teach because of her sexual orientation.
There was a hearing Wednesday on the case before the full 11-member 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.
The college consistently has denied that Hively was treated differently than other employees.
"Ivy Tech Community College rejects discrimination of all types, and in fact explicitly prohibits, employment discrimination based upon a person’s sexual orientation. In 2014, Kimberly Hively alleged that she was not promoted due to her sexual orientation. Ivy Tech takes such a claim very seriously and steadfastly denies Hively’s allegations," Ivy Tech spokesman Jeff Fanter said in a written statement.
Hively is represented by Greg Nevins, a lawyer with Lambda Legal, an organization that works for the civil rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
During the hearing, Nevins argued that sexual orientation discrimination is a form of sex discrimination, which already is prohibited under federal law.
"You can't fail to promote a woman for doing the exact same thing a man could do," meaning dating a woman, the attorney said by telephone after the hearing. "They understand the argument," Nevins said. "A few years ago, this argument wasn't getting much currency."
There is no timetable for a court decision.
Federal law prohibits discrimination based on sex, race, religion, color and national origin. Hively and her attorneys are making the case that the law should be expanded to include sexual orientation.

Just a week before the November 8th election, attackers set a church in Greenville, Mississippi, on fire. The historically black church was targeted in what authorities believe was an act of voter intimidation, its walls spray-painted with the phrase “Vote Trump.”
“This kind of attack happened in the 1950s and 1960s,” Greenville’s mayor said, “but it shouldn’t happen in 2016.”
The incident was just a harbinger of what has become a national outbreak of hate, as white supremacists celebrate Donald Trump’s victory.* In the ten days following the election, there were almost 900 reports of harassment and intimidation from across the nation. Many harassers invoked Trump’s name during assaults, making it clear that the outbreak of hate stemmed in large part from his electoral success.

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.

"Look, if I hook up with him, maybe it will make things easier for him.”
Younger star and RuPaul’s Drag Race superfan, Nico Tortorella has never been shy about discussing sexuality—whether it’s on his podcast The Love Bomb or in a new interview with New York magazine where he divulged that he had hooked up with a male friend in high school.
“This is going to sound fucked, but I knew that he was really struggling. And I was like, Look, if I hook up with him, maybe it will make things easier for him,” Tortorella remembers. “We hooked up.”
“There was no ass play at all. It was just dick-to-mouth here,” revealed Tortorella. “He was shaken up about it and I was like, ‘It’s fine. What happened last night doesn’t make you the person that you are. Why are you putting so much weight on it?’ And when that happened, I was like, ’Oh, I’m thinking about this differently than everyone else is thinking about it.’”
Earlier this year Tortorella came out as “sexually fluid” but he might be adopting a new label for himself.
“The more I’m having these conversations, the more comfortable I am identifying as bisexual,” he told New York.
“I’ve been so hesitant about using the word for so long, because it does have a negative connotation in our generation. People fought for so long for that ‘B’ in LGBT, and I refuse to be the person that’s going to throw that away because I think I have a more colorful word.”
Tortorella doesn’t want the sexuality conversation to stop with his podcast—he also talked about his idea for a sketch comedy show called Nico Nico Nico that would “explore various gender and sexual identities.”
“Each episode was a different label,” Tortorella said. “So there was the gay episode, the straight episode, the bisexual episode, the cisgender episode, the asexual episode. I was playing all these different characters, so you could see how one person could be all of these different things in all of these different relationships.”
Sounds like “Must See TV” to us!

We've officially become a Banana Republic under Drumpf!
MANILA/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Donald Trump invited Philippines leader Rodrigo Duterte to the White House next year during a "very engaging, animated" phone conversation, a Duterte aide said on Friday, amid rocky relations between their two countries.
Trump's brief chat with the firebrand Philippine president comes during a period of uncertainty about one of Washington's most important Asian alliances, stoked by Duterte's unrelenting hostility toward the United States and his repeated threats to sever decades-old defense ties.
The call lasted just over seven minutes, Duterte's special advisor, Christopher Go, said in a short text message to media, which gave few details. Trump's transition team had no immediate comment.
In his five months in office, the volatile Duterte has upended Philippine foreign policy by berating the United States, making overtures toward historic rival China and pursuing a new alliance with Russia.
His diplomacy has created jitters among some Asian countries, wary about Beijing's rising influence and Washington's staying power as a regional counterbalance.
The maverick former mayor has praised China and told U.S. President Barack Obama to "go to hell" and called him a "son of a bitch" whom he would humiliate if he visited the Philippines.
The anger was unleashed after Obama expressed concern about possible human rights abuses in Duterte's war on drugs, during which over 2,000 people have been killed.
Duterte had initially expressed optimism about having Trump in the Oval Office, saying he no longer wanted quarrels. But it has not tempered his rhetoric and he has continued to rail at what he calls U.S. "hypocrisy" and "bullying".
In an interview with Reuters during the election campaign, Trump said Duterte's comments showed "a lack of respect for our country".
Sometimes referred to as the "Trump of the East" because of his mercurial ways, Duterte has threatened repeatedly to sever defense ties between the two allies, saying he "hates" having foreign soldiers in his country.
Joint military exercises look set to be scaled back next year, as Duterte demanded, including the number of U.S. troops involved.
A question mark hangs over the future of a 2014 Enhanced Defence Cooperation Agreement (EDCA), however, a deal of strategic importance to Washington because it allows U.S. forces access to Philippine bases on a troop rotation basis.
A source who has advised Trump's transition team on security policy told Reuters last week that Trump would start a "clean slate" with the Philippines.
"He is perfectly capable of talking to Duterte in an open way without being wedded to previous policy failures," the source said of Trump.
"But EDCA is a concern and some of the things Duterte has said are a concern. That is not going to change based on who the president is."
Duterte caused a stir when he visited China in October and announced his "separation" from the United States. He has said Washington could not be trusted to support the Philippines if it were attacked, as mandated in a joint defense treaty.
In an article in Foreign Policy magazine before the U.S. election, Trump campaign advisers Peter Navarro and Alex Gray blamed the bilateral breakdown on the Obama administration's failure to intervene in 2012 when China seized the Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea, which the Philippines considers its fishing ground.
"Washington's utter failure to uphold its obligations to a longtime, pivotal ally during one of its most humiliating crises has no doubt contributed to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's low opinion of American security guarantees — and his recent move toward a China alliance," they wrote.
Some experts, however, say Duterte's appointment of special envoys to Washington suggest that despite his hostility, he intends to keep good ties.
Among those envoys is multi-millionaire real estate tycoon Jose Antonio, who bought the rights to name a new office tower in Manila "Trump Towers".

[quote]Like Science of Us has argued before, just about the worst way to get someone to open up enough to think critically about their views is to call them something they find offensive. (Cut to: basket of deplorables.) Racistin particular holds a charged and ambiguous space. Benjamin Bergen, author of What the F: What Swearing Reveals About Our Language, Our Brains, and Ourselves, says that the word is emotionally fraught like a conventional swear word, but it’s not quite the same thing: If you were to ask a representative sample of Americans if it should be bleeped on television and radio, they’d say no — even those offended by it.
[quote]“What’s it’s most close to is a slur, but it’s not like chink or n-gger or wetback,” he says. “These are terms that are problematic as sequences of sounds or letters — racist is not that.” It functions a bit like a slur in that it’s a way for one group to label another, but it’s not like the word captures a demographic group representative of everyone who has ever been called racist in American history.. “You wouldn’t say that Malcolm X and David Duke belong to a natural category of people,” he says. “And it’s not a group that’s been marginalized over the course of history or much in the present. It’s not like people are suppressed because they are racists. I think it’s most like a derogatory term, like idiot or deplorable.”

I watched a few FOL episodes recently and couldn't believe how thinly veiled its lesbian overtones were.
They start out in a boarding school but go on to establish what's basically a commune. They make a pretense of leaving to visit family around the holidays but always gravitate back to each other due to "missed flights" or "bad weather."
Tootie and Natalie are inseparable, and the steamy Lo/Blair sexual tension is well already well documented.
Cloris Leachman shows up with her feminine son, who is clearly the product of artificial insemination, to show the other women how to be same sex parents.
And there are almost NO MEN except for George Clooney, fictional off screen boyfriends like Snake, and rapists (both Natalie and Jo are attacked). There is even an ultra-masculine baby dyke who is mentored by the ladies in later seasons. This show was the original L Word. —Anonymous

A German intelligence officer has reportedly been arrested over a suspected Islamist plot to bomb the agency's headquarters in Cologne.
The 51-year-old official was said to have made a "partial confession" to the plot, according to Der Spiegel.
The suspect attempted to pass on "sensitive information about the BfV (Germany's domestic security agency), which could lead to a threat to the office", an official told the newspaper.
The BfV said the man "behaved inconspicuously" prior to his arrest. He had, since April, been engaged in gathering intelligence on Islamist extremists in Germany, Der Spiegel said.
Online chats were apparently found between the suspect and other Islamists in which he attempted to recruit them to the intelligence agency to mount an attack on "non-believers", carrying out a bomb attack on the spy HQ "in the name of Allah".
He used several different names online and his activities were uncovered about a month ago.
The man's family reportedly knew nothing of his conversion to Islam two years ago and subsequent radicalisation.
The suspect was thought to have pledged of allegiance to Mohamed Mahmoud, the Austrain leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant terrorist group.
Germany is on high alert following several terror attacks over the summer.

Not only did purses fall out they rolled across the floor and down the hall! We ended up having great sex and we agreed that we will see each other for more encounters. I'm not judging but this was totally unexpected. He's not fem in any other way except his voice. How does this happen? I'm in NYC by the way.

I've just read one of the most poignant posts regarding racism on the Joy Reid thread. It's by a Black man who clearly understands it from his point of view, and seemingly understands it from a White person's point of view. But what's the solution? Maybe some of us Dataloungers can contribute our insight and thoughts on this disturbing matter. Here's his post:
"As a black person, here is what I see as the problem regarding racism in this country.
Some White people are tired of being blamed for things they had no control over. Slavery... Jim Crow... all of it. They simply want black people to get over it and just move on. And I can understand where they're coming from.
Some Black people, on the other hand, knowing that black people have been in this country since the beginning see the tremendous generational wealth of this country, built on the backs of slaves (and a lot of poor white people [white-adjacent in DL speak]) and wonder what happened to their piece of the American dream.
A lot of Black people have relatives who remember Jim Crow. Who remember how horrible it was and what lead to it. So it's tough for some Black people to just get over it and move on. Because the discriminatory practices of the past still impacts that community today. Especially in poor black communities, where some have just given up hope or have turned to crime to survive.
And when things were put in place to try and help people out, people got all up in their feelings about quotas and special set asides and affirmative action. They absolutely lost their shit over bussing. So efforts are put in place to make things better, but no one wants those things to affect little Madison's spot at Harvard for some black kid. Even though little Madison probably lost her spot to the child of some rich alum.
So what you have is one group saying, hey this country owes me. And you have another group saying this country owes you nothing, that you have the exact same chance as everyone else if you value education and work hard like everyone else and act a certain way. There is the disconnect.
Quite frankly, as a black man, I believe that education and hard work will level any playing field. It has for me. However, as a black man, I feel that I have to work twice as hard as a white counterpart to only get half as far. And I find that frustrating and sometimes demoralizing. I hate that I have to always be nice and friendly and agreeable to everyone and can't always state my true opinion because I don't want to be labeled as "hostile" or "angry". I have seen it happen with the careers of other black associates being messed up because they got the label.
Not all of Trumps voters are racist, you can't go in with that mindset. However, some of them are. Some of them are awful racists, many are just casual racists who don't even realize what they're doing or saying is racist. And some of them really believe that black people have been getting a free ride in this country and they want that to stop.
I don't know what the solution is. I don't know how to fix it."

this remote Indian state of 31 million is in the midst of an effort to identify and “weed out” some of the more than 20 million illegal immigrants from Bangladesh living in India.
Officials launched a laborious effort to certify the Bangladeshi population in India two years ago, but the drive has been infused with new vigor and cash since the governing Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party won state elections in April.
“The Hindu rate of population growth is declining. But the Muslim rate is rising. Most of the Muslims here are from Bangladesh. If this continues, the Assamese Hindus will become a minority soon; we will lose our language, our culture, our identity,” said Himanta Biswa Sarma, finance minister in the Assam government.

Holidays with the Websters are always kinda kookoo for Cocoa Puffs! Nevertheless, I wanted to share with you some of the things we’re thankful for this year.
Joe landed a job on the assembly line at the new iPhone factory 60 miles outside town. Yes, it’s $7.25 an hour. But we figured if he stayed in the company dorms and worked 80 hours a week we’d be still able to see him on the occasional weekend.
I really want an iPhone for Christmas. Unfortunately, even with Joe’s discount, it would cost $1,500! Land sakes, why are electronics so much more expensive now when they had been getting cheaper for so long?
Joe Jr. is back on his feet after having his face rearranged by another skinhead with a baseball bat. I told him not to hold hands with another man in public but he wouldn't listen. Maybe he’ll be more receptive now to the conversion therapy and shock treatment centers that fearless Christian soldier Vice President Pence set up. God knows I've been trying to pray Joe Jr's gay away for years!!
Our sweet little Bayleigh is doing so much better now in school. She absolutely loves her new science teacher. And she won first place in the fair! It wasn't easy finding the right pair of brontosauruses for her Noah’s ark diorama. Can you believe those little plastic toys from China were $7 each?
I’m a grandma! Turned out Misty got a lot more than a grope from her boss at last year's office Christmas party. Boys will be boys! LOL. She gave birth to a precious special-needs baby boy! After she dropped out of school to take care of our little blessing, she managed to find a part-time job working with those poor Muslim women in the relocation camp down by the railroad tracks. Imagine having to wear those unflattering heebie-jeebie thingies in this 100-degree heat! Why on earth is it so dang hot at Christmas! If the beach hadn't been washed away, we could all go swimming!

From Joan Collin's book "Past imperfect" :
"Warren went to London to make The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone opposite Vivien Leigh. watched Warren, dressed and made up like a young Italian gigolo, make love to Vivien Leigh. Vivien was a beautiful woman in her late forties. As the aging Mrs. Stone, an American lady looking for love and companionship in Rome, she was cast perfectly. The great beauty of her early films was no longer much in evidence. Her life, never very happy, was compounded by ill health and drinking, and she looked tired and older than her years. Looking at Vivien, and how her lifestyle had taken its toll on her looks, I hastily ground out my cigarette and vowed to take better care of myself.
She did not take kindly to me, Miss Leigh, but she certainly did to Warren. He, never one to miss an opportunity, was his most beguiling and adorable self around her.
"Why do you spend so much money on clothes?" she asked me sharply at lunch in the studio restaurant one day. "It's an absolute waste of good money. Why, I've never seen you in the same outfit twice." She looked at me accusingly. "And what is that you are wearing today? It looks like a man's suit."
"It is," said I, digging into my steak-and-kidney pie. "It was made for me." Men's suits for women were unusual in the early 1960s. London had not yet become the trend-setting fashion capital of the world, and ladies wore skirts in England.
"You should spend your money on jewelry, my dear," said Vivien, elegantly lifting a glass of wine with her be-ringed and braceleted hand and scrutinizing me disapprovingly. "Jewelry is such a good investment. Why, with good jewelry—some pearls and rings, or an attractive brooch—you could wear a little black dress every day and look marvelous." A little black dress every day. How boring, I thought.
"What do you think, Warren darling?" asked Vivien, lightly resting her aristocratic hand on his arm and fluttering her beautiful pale blue eyes.
"Um, I think she looks cute," said Warren, giving me a sly wink. "No use trying to get Joanie to change her way of dressing. She does what she wants. You look like—umm—a little man," he said fondly. I raised my eyes heavenward and observed Vivien's eyelashes batting in his direction. I was not above having a touch of the green-eyed monster myself, so I gave him a swift kick under the table and he quickly went back to his fish and chips. Vivien gave me a sharp look.
She was a perceptive lady and she knew that she fancied Warren. Whether this May-December flirtation was ever consummated I do not know. Warren was getting plenty of opportunities to be unfaithful if he chose to do so. Women were going gaga at the sight of this vision and he was pleased and flattered by their attentions."

U.S. short on tough guy actors Filmmakers turn to U.K., Australia for action stars By ANNE THOMPSON. Where have the manly movie stars gone? Not so long ago, Hollywood s male stars were men s men. Think John Wayne, Robert Mitcham, Humphrey Bogart and Steve McQueen.
Over the decades, that generation has given way to the likes of Johnny Depp, Keanu Reeves, Brendan Fraser and Tom Cruise.
Casting the titular tough-guy New York hero of his upcoming adaptation of The Spirit, Frank Miller also had trouble finding the right actor.
Hollywood is great at producing male actors, but sucks at producing men, says Miller, found them all too much like boys. (He hired New York TV actor Gabriel Macht, 36.)
We spend a lot of time in the industry talking about that issue, says Robert Relyea, who produced movies for McQueen and wrote Not So Quiet on the Set: My Life in Movies During Hollywood s Macho Era. My directors always tried to seek out people who had it, which does not exist today. You've got copycats trying to be McQueen. They don t get it.
These days, studios are hard-pressed to find home-grown traditional male leads to carry their pictures. Their star rosters include countless boy-men who even after they turn 40 are less than credible macho movie stars. Depp powered the Pirates franchise with a fey perf that was fussier Marlon Brando than athletic Errol Flynn.
Even with The Matrix series behind him, Reeves is still often defined by Bill and Ted s Excellent Adventure and other wayward youth roles. He was less than believable as a doctor in Something's Gotta Give. That's because he's a boy-man.
So is goofy Fraser, who aged from a boyish George of the Jungle to a boyish mummy-fighting father in The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.
In a global culture, so what if the tough guys come from another country? Asks producer Sean Daniel, who padded Mummy with Hong Kong action stars Jet Li and Michele Yeoh. It's one big movie culture. Not atypically, the year's top-grossing film, The Dark Knight, stars Brits Christian Bale and Michael Caine alongside the late Heath Ledger, from Down Under.
Even New Yorker Woody Allen is drawing his male stars from Europe, with Spain s Javier Bardem in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Britain s Ian McShane in Scoop and Scotland s Ewan McGregor and Ireland's Colin Farrell in Cassandra s Dream.
These days, when John Travolta or Ben Affleck aren't the right fit for a big actioner, the studios often turn to the likes of rugged Aussies Mel Gibson and Russell Crowe, whose perfs can range from both scary and dangerous to powerful and tender. Affleck, like original Jack Ryan Alec Baldwin, could have used a boost from more Tom Clancy installments after The Sum of All Fears, but the studio is going another way.
Even comic book superheroes are boy-men Brandon Routh as Superman, Edward Norton the Hulk and Tobey Maguire Spider-Man unless they're from another country, like Brits Bale (Batman) and X-Men stars Ian McKellen (Magneto) and Patrick Stewart (Professor X), or Aussie Hugh Jackman (Wolverine). And while Will Smith played post-apocalyptic hero in I Am Legend, his Hancock is a post-modern superhero, an alcoholic homeless man not the stuff of myth and legend.
Two of the top rising action stars right now are both from the U.K.: 300 star Gerard Butler and Jason Statham (Death Race).
We all wish there were five more guys like Jason Statham, says producer Mark Gill. There's no shortage of roles for them. There's a shortage of guys who can plausibly do them. The more expensive the budget, the narrower the list.

I watched it for the first time tonight at a dates house. Is this movie generally thought of as camp now along the lines of Mommy Dearest? This poor Precious girl basically has the worst luck of any person who ever lived and then there's the ridiculous scene where a 300 lb girl steals a bucket of fried chicken and runs off. I felt like I was watching a John Waters film I couldn't help myself I laughed and my date glared at me. Then there's Mimi as a guidance counsellor and Monique was way over the top. I know people are abused in real life and that's awful but it all seems so melodramatic in this movie. The girl who played Precious was a good actress though and I'm glad I've seen her in some normal roles. The scene with her predator dad grabbing the Vaseline before he rapes her will forever haunt me.

Seems like people here are skeptical that this so-called era of "Peak TV" is as great as everyone says it is. What was the real best era of TV? I personally love the late '70s/early '80s (the MTM shows like Lou Grant and Hill Street Blues, Family, the early days of Dallas and Knots Landing, sitcoms like Taxi, Cheers, Barney Miller, WKRP in Cincinnati).

The state of Rio is broke. It hasn’t been able to pay its bills since long before the games. A federal bailout kept police on the streets and hospitals open while Olympics tourists were in town. But now the money has dried up, and public employees aren’t being paid.
One big reason Rio is in so much money trouble is that state lawmakers have a habit of giving huge tax incentives to companies that do business here. An auditor found that Rio missed out on 138 billion reais (about $40 billion) in corporate taxes between 2008 and 2013. That’s almost twice the state’s annual budget of about 80 billion reais.

Clayne Crawford who plays Teddy creates tension in every scene. I saw a little bit of him in the new Lethal Weapon series and it goes to show how well he plays Teddy because his Riggs character is so different.

In reality, these people are only sorry that they got caught and have felt the backlash of public opinion, or of losing their jobs, or losing face on social media...
Here is one example:
Dr. Michelle Herren of Denver, Colorado. Herren works in the children’s unit of Denver Health as a pediatric anesthesiologist and is listed as an assistant professor at the University Of Colorado Denver School Of Medicine, a non-paid position.
She posted about FLOTUS Michelle Obama: [italic] "Monkey face and poor ebonic English!!! There! I feel better and am still not racist!!! Just calling it like it is!" [/italic]
Since then, Herren removed her comment and has since taken down her Facebook page.
Herren did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but a person who picked up the phone listed in her name answered “we are not commenting right now.”
Herren told KMGH-TV that her comment was “taken out of context” and that she did not realize the “monkey face” reference was racist.

[quote]The University of Kansas has suspended four students from its cheerleading and spirit squads after one reportedly posted a Snapchat image over the weekend that featured a caption reading “KKK go Trump.” The school’s athletic department announced Tuesday that it had suspended three male students from the spirit squad and one female student from the cheerleading squad.

Mike Pence's DC neighbors are trolling him with gay pride flags, ABC 7 reports.
The former Indiana governor is currently living in a temporary residence in DC's Chevy Chase neighborhood before he moves into the official VP pad at the US Naval Observatory.
When Pence—who has backed numerous anti-LGBTQ policies and once said that gay marriage would lead to "societal collapse"—moved into the northwest Washington neighborhood after the election, the gay pride flags began appearing at nearby houses as a subtle protest.
Flying the pride flag is "a respectful message showing, in my case, my disagreement with some of his thinking," Ilse Heintzen, who lives on Pence's block, told ABC 7. "I have no idea what [Pence] will think about, but I hope he will change his mind."
According to the news report, there are six pride flags flying up and down the street, and more on their way. In other Pence trolling news, Planned Parenthood reported to have received more than 70,000 donations in the soon-to-be-VP's name since November 8.

Many students and faculty members at the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) have had it with Professor Mike Adams, and there's currently an online petition to get the professor—who, according to the petition, "has a history of spewing misogynistic, xenophobic, transphobic, homophobic, racist rhetoric" —fired from his job.
Most recently, the criminology and sociology professor has been accused of openly harassing an LGBTQ Muslim immigrant student, Nada Merghani, in articles and social media posts. But it's hardly the first time he has been accused of targeting a student or a faculty member under the guise of "free speech."
According to Kelly Williams, an alumna of UNCW and a Community Outreach Manager at the Wilmington YWCA, Adams has harassed "10 or more students over the past 15 years." Some of those current and former students wrote lengthy anecdotes about their run-ins with Adams on the new Change.org petition that calls for the university to fire him. The petition, as of Wednesday afternoon, had more than 3,300 supporters.
Mikaela Fleming is one of the students who shared her experience of being "harassed and ridiculed" by Professor Adams on the petition page. In the spring of 2015, Fleming wrote, she was among the UNCW students who protested an anti-abortion group that came to campus displaying graphic imagery comparing abortion to the Holocaust and to slavery.
Fleming was interviewed by reporters at the time and was later stunned when Adams—a professor at her school—posted the news footage on social media along with threatening statements that she said were connected to her news appearances, including a post that read: "The mortality rate among people who disagree with me is right at 100%. So just nod and go with the flow. Or face the consequences."

An interesting project to consider on World AIDS Day....
On World AIDS Day, filmmaker Leo Herrera launches a project to reimagine the present. -----
What if Sylvester sang at this year’s Grammys? What if Keith Haring was speaking right now at Art Basel Miami, or appearing at a retrospective of his work at the refurbished SF MOMA? What if Robert Mapplethorpe was Twitter-fighting with Trump?
What if AIDS never took the lives of these gay icons, or, indeed, the 35 million other people who have died from the disease?
December 1 is World AIDS Day, a time to remember the untold lives lost to the HIV virus – but also a powerful monument to activism and commemoration. For much of the world now, AIDS is a manageable disease, and new treatments like PrEP are helping a new generation rediscover the power of sexual liberation free of fear. (We’ve still got a looooong way to go though until everyone has equal access to treatment and proper healthcare.)
Playing on World AIDS Day’s tradition of remembrance, local filmmaker Leo Herrera is launching the trailer and crowdfunding campaign for his “Fathers” project — an ambitious undertaking that attempts to artistically recreate a world where AIDS hadn’t wiped out significant gay figures.
“In a feat of digital wizardry, Herrera uses age-progression (a forensic technique used by police to find missing children) to take iconic portraits of Robert Mapplethorpe, Keith Haring, David Wojnarowicz, Vito Russo and Sylvester, and morphs them into happy seniors in a joyful Dorian Grey reversal of their fate, ” the “Fathers” press release states. “Combined with imagination, input from those closest to these figures, and historical research, Herrera immerses us in exploring possibilities and potential outcomes if the AIDS crisis hadn’t wiped out an entire generation.”
“I was first inspired by the “Have You Seen Me?” notices that were delivered to your home or on milk cartons,” Herrera told me from New Mexico, where he was visiting family. “You would see the missing child in the photograph where they were aged to what they would look like now, often years after their abduction. I always wondered what the parents felt like.
“The original project was to make a film asking, ‘What if they had found a cure for AIDS?'” Herrera said. But then PrEP” — the once-a-day pill treatment for HIV-negative people that helps protect them from HIV — “came on the scene, and a very interesting thing started happening in the community.
“It was very confusing at first, having something like PrEP, and I think the community really felt a need to hear from its elders, for guidance. But AIDS had ensured there were few left. It made me think of what it would be like if none of this had happened.”
“Each of the age-metamorphoses took about 40 hours — I was staring into the eyes of these subjects I had thought so much about for 40 hours as I worked on aging them. It was very affecting,” Herrera told me.
The final project will be a ‘faux’ documentary, aiming for 2017 release, produced by Herrera alongside a team of collaborators, historians from the GLBT Historical Society, survivors, friends, lovers and family of the men featured. It will be filmed in San Francisco, New Orleans and New York. To research the political storylines for Fathers, Herrera worked in a New York art collective with Act-Up legend Avram Finkelstein, of the Silence=Death campaign.
The idea is pretty brilliant, and raises questions and issues right off the bat. For one thing, a lot of “Mothers” and trans people were wiped out by AIDS, too. For another, would gay rights have made such progress without the humanization of gay people that occurred during the ravages of the disease, or without the martyrdom of our dead activist-heroes?
But Herrera is no stranger to diving into charged moments of gay history — he’s made substantial work around Harvey Milk’s assassination and the criminalization of HIV. “Fathers” promises to add something beautiful to the speculative history of the gay community.

Camp. Flamboyant. Fashionable. Effeminate.
Time and time again we hear gay men described using these adjectives, but this narrow, outdated stereotype is inaccurate - and it’s ruining lives.
The prevalence of it fuels homophobia and isolates members of the LGBT+ community, according to Matt Horwood, senior communications officer at LGBT rights charity Stonewall.
“If you are someone who doesn’t necessarily fit into a clear stereotype you may struggle with coming out to friends and family,” he tells The Huffington Post UK.
“Family may say things like ‘you don’t seem gay’ or ‘you’re not like the gay people we’ve seen on television’. Young people may worry that their family expect them to fit into a certain box.”
With a recent survey showing 59% of LGBT+ people in the UK feel threatened by other people’s attitudes towards them and 41% of gay men saying they worry about holding their partner’s hand in public, it’s clear something needs to change.
Mike How, a 26-year-old administrator at Sony Music, didn’t start coming out to friends and family until he was 22.
“One reason it took so long for me to accept that I was gay and to come out was that I didn’t identify with the gay stereotype,” he tells HuffPost UK.
“I’m not a flamboyant character, I don’t have a lisp, I had no interest in fashion growing up, I’m not into musicals, I can’t dance and I’m too bashful for singing or acting on stage. I thought to myself, ‘how could I be gay?’.
“It seems obvious now, but if it had been clear to me that there are plenty of other gay people out there who don’t identify with the stereotype, then perhaps I wouldn’t have struggled with it for as long as I did.”
For How, the stereotype is so ingrained in society that people often assume he’s straight, unless he explicitly says otherwise.
“It’s a challenge when meeting new people in the workplace, since discussing my attraction to men doesn’t come up all that naturally in conversation to me, but I don’t want to have to make coming out a big statement either,” he says.
He describes his sexuality as the “invisible elephant in the room”, which he struggles to share with others.
Horwood says it’s not unusual for gay men who contradict the prevalent stereotype to experience extra hurdles when coming out.
“We hear from young people that we work with that sometimes after coming out, their friends joke that they ‘aren’t gay enough,’” he says.
“Friends can’t understand that they’re gay because they don’t fit into that criteria we pin on gay people.”
He even claims that the expectation all gay men will act a certain way can sometimes create a “self-fulfilment” prophecy.
“When you’re growing up and you’re in school, if you only see really set representations of what gay is, you kind of think that’s how you have to grow up and that’s what you have to become,” he says.
In contrast, some gay men rebel against these expectations when struggling to come to terms with their sexuality.
Alex Kohnert, 24, from Aberdeen, feels his hobbies and interests may have been influenced by stereotypes.
“I used to be into acting and musical theatre and things like that. The more I grew up and realised that those were things people perceived to be effeminate, the more I moved away from them and didn’t do those kinds of activities,” he says.
As he got older he started playing football and is still a big sports fan today, but he wonders how much of this is learned behaviour, rather than natural passion. Horwood believes the key to spreading a diverse view of gay men and stamping out homophobia is having visible gay role models from all walks of life.
That means creating a world in which a gay banker feels like he can tell colleagues about his last date, or a builder doesn’t have to hide his sexuality on a construction site.
For this to happen, we need to be mindful of the language we use to describe gay men in everyday life, cut out homophobic slurs and educate the next generation about what it really means to be gay.
Being gay has absolutely nothing to do with your looks or interests ....

A surprisingly strong and bipartisan effort to require women to register for the draft failed Tuesday, as negotiators on a defense bill indicated the provision would not be included in the final legislation.
The language had been tucked into the Senate version of the National Defense Authorization Act, which overwhelmingly passed that chamber in June. The provision also cleared a House committee, but GOP leaders later scrambled to remove it from their version of the NDAA before it reached the floor, as some in their party protested. That left its fate up in the air for months as negotiators worked behind closed doors to hammer out a final bill.
Top aides from armed services committees told reporters in a Tuesday briefing that the proposal was ultimately axed and, in its place, there will be the legislative equivalent of sending a policy idea to its grave: commissioning a study.
“We still require the study,” said one senior aide. “There’s a study and a commission to look at selective service and look at the structure and what it does and everything like that.”
Lawmakers who had been pushing for months to include women in the draft acknowledged it would have little practice impact, at least anytime soon; the United States has relied on an all-volunteer military force for decades. But many felt it was important to do anyway, to reflect the growing consensus that women are as capable of serving and leading in the military as men.
“There should not be one standard of what you have to be capable of to do certain jobs in the military ― one for men and one for women,” Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) told The Huffington Post earlier this year. “But as long as we’re vigilant about that, women are just going to make us better.”
“I don’t think you want to take half your population off the sidelines in case of a national emergency,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who served in the Air Force for years, also said at the time.

since the CEO feels Trump is a racist and a bigot. GOOD FOR HIM. I hope he persuades Nascar as a whole to follow along. He apparently as a great deal of pull with that organization..
One of the biggest NASCAR sponsors in all of racing is pumping the brakes on Donald Trump -- trying to pull a huge awards ceremony from one of Trump's properties and urging all of NASCAR to cut ties.
TMZ Sports has learned ... Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis reached out to NASCAR head Brian France to express his anger over Trump's comments regarding Mexican immigrants.
Lemonis is a HUGE player in NASCAR -- since his company sponsors the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series -- and recently signed a MASSIVE deal with the org. extending their relationship to 2022.
In his letter to France, Lemonis writes ... "Last year, our NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Awards Ceremony was held at the Trump National Doral in Miami, and due to recent and ongoing blatantly bigoted and racist comments from Donald Trump in regards to immigrants of the United States, I would like to inform you that I will not, nor will any representative of Camping World, participate or attend in the ceremonial event if it is held at any Trump property."
He adds, "I would hope that the entire NASCAR organization would agree with my sentiments."

For a leisurely shopping day, some people bring along a tote, others … a firearm. Just ask Levi’s CEO Chip Bergh, who wrote an open letter to his customers asking them to kindly leave their guns at home when they go shopping for denim in the label’s stores.
“Providing a safe environment to work and shop is a top priority for us at Levi Strauss & Co. That imperative is quickly challenged, however, when a weapon is carried into one of our stores,” Bergh wrote in a post on LinkedIn. “Recently, we had an incident in one of our stores where a gun inadvertently went off, injuring the customer who was carrying it.”
Bergh stresses in his letter that this is not an outright ban on guns, just a simple request to be mindful and perhaps keep the rifle in the car or on the gun rack, as opposed to bringing it in the store. Bergh also cites the attacks in Paris, Orlando, and Nice, France, saying that the tragedies in those three cities have made him more aware about safety. “So, while we understand the heartfelt and strongly held opinions on both sides of the gun debate, it is with the safety and security of our employees and customers in mind that we respectfully ask people not to bring firearms into our stores, offices or facilities, even in states where it’s permitted by law. Of course, authorized members of law enforcement are an exception.”
Bergh’s ultimate point? “You shouldn’t have to be concerned about your safety while shopping for clothes or trying on a pair of jeans. Simply put, firearms don’t belong in either of those settings.”
Naturally, Bergh’s letter was met with outrage from gun lovers on social media who feel that a gun is a necessary accessory for jeans shopping.
Some people applauded the CEO, saying that he is just trying to make his stores safe for everyone to shop in.

The government should intervene and forces ABC stations to run color bars that hour. Truly.

This actor is the star of a new television series this fall. This is not his first series.
He’s a handsome guy, and quite charismatic in person. He likes to pick up women (actresses, extras, crew) on the set and take them to his “second” home.
After one such tryst, the woman scrolled through his phone as he was in the shower… and was shocked to find that she wasn’t his only sidepiece.
In fact, he was exchanging sexually explicit messages with many women… and many men as well! One of those men was another actor on the show.
She immediately confronted him with questions about his bisexual encounters and whether or not he was being safe with them. He basically admitted that he had a steady girlfriend but that he needed to sleep with lots of men and women and that he was not always safe about it.

Thu December 1, 2016
France's President Francois Hollande announced Thursday he will not seek a second term in office.
French voters will go to the polls in April and May 2017, but Hollande, who has low popularity ratings, says he will not stand for re-election.
"I am speaking to you this evening to inform you of the decision I have taken in view of the forthcoming presidential election," he said. "I have decided not to be a candidate in the presidential election."
It is the first time since 1958, when France's fifth republic was created, that an incumbent president has not sought re-election.
Hollande's Socialist Party will now have to find a candidate to run against Francois Fillon, of the center-right Republican Party, and Marine Le Pen, of the far-right Front National.
Hollande, 62, defeated Nicolas Sarkozy in 2012 to become the first Socialist president to win a French election since François Mitterrand's re-election in 1988.
In announcing he won't run again, Hollande spoke against the ideas of Fillon and other conservatives.
"The far right calls us to retreat, to exit Europe and the world. They are taking as reference what happened in the United States of America," he said, referring to the election of Donald Trump. "I am clearly telling you, the greatest danger is protectionism. ..."
Fillon quickly fired back at the man he hopes to replace at the Elysee Palace, posting on Twitter: "This evening, the President of the Republic admitted clearly that his clear failure prohibits him from going any further."
"This five-year term ends in political chaos and the collapse of power. More than ever, the recovery of France must be built on solid foundations."
Hollande cites achievements
Hollande cited achievements under his watch, including opening up marriage to all couples, strengthening women's equality and fighting against discrimination.
He said unemployment had declined since the beginning of the year, but conceded "it remains at too high a level."
France has been hit by several major terrorist attacks while he was President.
In November 2015, attackers armed with automatic weapons and bombs struck six places in Paris, leaving at least 130 people dead and hundreds wounded. In January 2015, a total of 17 people died in attacks on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, a kosher grocery store, and the Paris suburb of Montrouge. In July, a man plowed through a holiday crowd in Nice with a truck, killing at least 84.
"The world, Europe and France went through particularly severe tests during my term in office," Hollande said.
"In these terrible circumstances, I wanted national cohesion to be maintained, so that we could avoid division and stigmatization ... I took the necessary measures."
He said his one regret was wanting to strip terrorists of French citizenship, a move that split the Socialist Party.
"I thought that it could unite us when it divided us," he said.
Hollande, who served as an aide to Mitterand at the beginning of his career in the 1970s, joined the Socialist Party in 1979 and two years later stood for election against future President Jacques Chirac. Hollande lost.
Born in Normandy, northwestern France, the son of a doctor and a social worker, Hollande studied politics at one of France's most prestigious universities.
Hollande had a 28-year relationship with fellow politician Segolene Royal; they have four children together, but never married, and split in 2007.
In 2014 Hollande's private life became the subject of global headlines when the French magazine Closer claimed he had been having an affair with actress Julie Gayet for two years. He broke up with his companion, Valerie Trierweiler, who was considered the nation's first lady.

(CNN)Former President Jimmy Carter is calling on the Obama administration to recognize Palestinian statehood before leaving office January 20.
Carter, who is strong proponent for Palestinian rights and a two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians, praised the Obama administration in a New York Times op-ed out Monday for its support for a "negotiated end to the conflict based on two states," but warned this work could be undone with an incoming Republican administration. "I am convinced that the United States can still shape the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict before a change in presidents, but time is very short, " Carter wrote. "The simple but vital step this administration must take before its term expires on Jan. 20 is to grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine." The former President also called for the UN Security Council to pass a resolution "laying out the parameters for resolving the conflict." Can Donald Trump solve the Middle East's many crises? "It should reaffirm the illegality of all Israeli settlements beyond the 1967 borders, while leaving open the possibility that the parties could negotiate modifications," he said. "Security guarantees for both Israel and Palestine are imperative, and the resolution must acknowledge the right of both the states of Israel and Palestine to live in peace and security." Carter went on to criticize the controversial building of Israeli settlements on Palestinian land. "Israel is building more and more settlements, displacing Palestinians and entrenching its occupation of Palestinian lands," Carter wrote. "Over 4.5 million Palestinians live in these occupied territories, but are not citizens of Israel. Most live largely under Israeli military rule, and do not vote in Israel's national elections." Carter is one of Israel's most vocal American critics. In his 2006 book, "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid," he compared Israel's military occupation in the West Bank to the apartheid system in South Africa. Obama has also been critical of Israel, calling in 2009 for a complete freeze on the building of Israeli settlements. However, President-elect Donald Trump's position has thrilled many supporters of Israel, as well as Israel's political right wing. As a candidate, Trump promised to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel and renogotiate the Iran nuclear deal, which has been criticized by Israel's leaders. The leader of the right-wing Jewish Home party Naftali Bennett, claimed a Trump presidency allows Israel to fully dismiss the notion of a Palestinian state. "This is the position of the President-elect, as written in his platform, and it should be our policy, plain and simple. The era of a Palestinian state is over."

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Engineers in San Francisco have tunneled underground to try and understand the sinking of the 58-story Millennium Tower. Now comes an analysis from space.
The European Space Agency has released detailed data from satellite imagery that shows the skyscraper in San Francisco's financial district is continuing to sink at a steady rate — and perhaps faster than previously known.
The luxury high-rise that opened its doors in 2009 has been dubbed the Leaning Tower of San Francisco. It has sunk about 16 inches into landfill and is tilting several inches to the northwest.

BERLIN — Two weeks ago, German intelligence agents noticed an unusual user in a chat room known as a digital hideout for Islamic militants. The man claimed to be one of them — and said he was a German spy. He was offering to help Islamists infiltrate his agency’s defenses to stage a strike.
Agents lured him into a private chat, and he gave away so many details about the spy agency — and his own directives within it to thwart Islamists — that they quickly identified him, arresting the 51-year-old the next day. Only then would the extent of his double life become clear.
The German citizen of Spanish descent confessed to secretly converting to Islam in 2014. From there, his story took a stranger turn. Officials ran a check on the online alias he assumed in radical chat rooms. The married father of four had used it before — as recently as 2011 — as his stage name for acting in gay pornographic films.
Authorities on Tuesday said they had arrested him on suspicion of preparing to commit a violent act and for violating state secrecy laws. His arrest was first reported in Germany’s Der Spiegel. But two German officials familiar with the case — a senior intelligence official and a senior law enforcement official — revealed new details about his double life in interviews with the Washington Post. They include his role in pornographic films, which could cast a fresh light on the judgment and vetting of the German intelligence agency at a critical time.

Donors to the Democratic Party burnt out after last month's catastrophic electoral losses.
Democrats lost the White House and failed to take enough seats in the House and Senate to constitute a majority, and their top donors have had enough.
'I may very well be done with political giving entirely,' John Morgan, a top Clinton fundraiser in Florida told The Hill. 'My message to anyone reading this is, "Don’t call me, I’ll call you." '
The losing political party is on a quest to remake its national political operation into one that's more inclusive after an email scandal in 2016 showed party leaders favoring the establishment.
Keith Ellison, a Minnesota lawmaker whose candidacy is backed by senators across the spectrum on the left, says the party must ween itself off of rich, corporate donors.
National Democrats may not have a choice.
'The feeling I get from big donors out here in California is that they’re not only extremely disappointed, but they’re shell-shocked,' Marc Nathanson, a high-roller who spoke to The Hill. 'So to turn around and say, now it’s time to rebuild the national party and the DNC, I just don’t see it.'
Big dollar donors are 'tired' a DNC official told The Hill.
'They’re upset about the election, and there was significant trauma surrounding the Russians. They’re upset and they’re tired.'
Democrats put more than $1.3 billion behind Clinton's losing campaign, including more than $545 million that benefited the party committees and her joint fundraising effort with the DNC and states, a Washington Post analysis of each candidate's finances that was published near the end of the race found.
The DNC has also been sending emails non-stop to small-dollar donors since a week after the election, pressing pause once on Thanksgiving Day.
Clinton ally David Brock told The Hill that some major backers are ready to get back in the fight.
'Tell us what to do,' the said, according to Brock. 'That has gotten me very quickly into a rebuilding mode. It was encouraging and surprising because so many were in shock. A lot still are.'
It's cute the weasel Brock is trying to counterfeit some enthusiasm. You'd think after a year on that same mission he'd want a rest.

"Olivier had vaguely assumed that he would have an affair with Simone Signoret (his costar in Term of Trial) whose husband, Yves Montand, was embroiled with Marilyn Monroe (“Spoilt, contaminated fat slug!” Olivier spat out, when Signoret complained to him about her husband’s mistress). Instead he became infatuated by “a new little girl called Sarah Miles”
"Olivier had begun an on-and-off affair with Sarah Miles, whom he had met during the filming of Term ofTrial 'in late 1961 and early 1962. The first ten weeks of shooting were in studios near Dublin, and then there were two weeks in Paris, during which Olivier asked her, "Will you lie with me?" She would. She was eighteen. Later they used to meet in a studio apartment he had taken near the Old Vic. which she recalled as a grim pad with no hot water. He asked her to call him Lionel Kerr, a variation on the old Andrew Kerr he had used with Vivien. He said the Lionel was for Lionheart.
While filming in Paris with Sarah Miles, when he heard that James Mason was to play Humbert Humbert in Stanley kubrick' Lolita , the part which he turned down. Miles noticed that he seemed disappointed and asked whether he wished he were doing it himself. “I suppose so,” Olivier confessed. “But I’d sooner live it,” he added as an afterthought. “He gave me a sleepy look. ‘I never ever dreamt that I’d be tempted by anyone so young.’”
Miles proved to be one of the most serious of his casual affairs. According to Derek Granger he at one point even went so far as to consult his agent, Laurence Evans, about the possibility of securing a divorce so as to marry Miles. It does not seem likely that he did more than play with the idea and when Evans pointed out that it would seriously damage if not destroy his career, he quickly dropped it.
Sarah Miles was in the National Theatre company in 1963 but left suddenly in March 1965 after Noel Coward breezed into Olivier's dressing room one day while they were engaged in a rather 'indelicate' situation. Miss Miles said that Mr Coward refused to speak or have anything to do with her after that She married the playwright Robert Bolt in 1967 and later wrote three books of memoirs, one of which she dedicated to Lionel Kerr.
"Sarah said that Olivier told her he had been bisexual. But she says he might easily have done that to "turn her on," knowing that she had herself been bisexual as a girl"
Sarah Miles came back into Olivier’s life in Hollywood in 1976. He took her to a party and after that they made love. It does not sound a wholly satisfactory occasion. Olivier was much preoccupied by his recent illness. “See here,” said Olivier, turning on the light, “that’s why I wouldn’t hold your hand.” He showed Miles the greyish, watery substance oozing from his fingertips. In spite of this they kept the affair going when they got back to London.
According to Miles he was at his most vulnerable emotionally and claimed he was anxious to divorce Joan Plowright and marry her: “How easy it would have been then, in his lonely and tormented state, to have him fall – albeit a slightly overripe fruit – plop, into my lap.” He told Miles’s parents that there was nothing he wanted more than to marry their daughter but that his wife had made him realise that “the scandal would be too much for the children to bear”. Miles was hurt that her lover had elected to make this revelation to her parents rather than to her, but the affair flickered on..."

I'm reading "Helter Skelter" and looking up bok reviews online and it seems a lot of people have written their own books (including the late Susan Atkins, who should probably be discounted) that Vincent Bugliosi coined the entire "Helter Skelter" theory with Linda Kasabian. That the whole murders were over drugs and money. Anybody an expert or done more studies of these murders? Was Terry Melcher who they were after? And Candice Bergen? It doesn't seem like they even knew Abigail Folger was an heiress as they killed and ran.
And how dumb to not keep tabs on the rest of the Family years after the convictions.

When Donald Trump’s history of sexual assault first became a major issue on the campaign trail, his then–campaign manager Kellyanne Conway was quick to defend him by accusing anti-Trump lawmakers of making unwanted advances on women, too. “Everybody is running around saying, ‘He’s condoning sexual assault,’” Conway said on MSNBC. “No, he’s not.” Conway hasn’t said much on the subject since, but she was forced to confront the issue again on Wednesday, when a high-school student asked her how she could “rationalize” working for Trump given his record with women.
Conway was reportedly speaking to a group of students in Washington, D.C., whose Advanced Placement government class was attending an event sponsored by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. When she opened the floor to questions, a female student who later identified herself as the daughter of David Corn (a liberal writer and Mother Jones’ Washington bureau chief), brought up sexual assault.
According to the Hill, she went on to tell the 17-year-old, “Women are tired of the same argument and the same thing you are presenting to me right now.” She went on, “I’m glad that people looked at [those attacks] and said, ‘You know what? That’s an argument that will not create a single job in my community, not bring back a single of the 70,000 factories that have been closed, will not deter one member of ISIS from doing their bloodletting here or anywhere else in the world.’”

Rosie O’Donnell is apologizing to Melania Trump for Tweeting out a YouTube video suggesting Barron Trump might be autistic. “I was insensitive in my RT- i am sorry for the pain i caused,” she says.
The apology comes after Melania hired lawyer Charles Harder to write a letter to the original YouTube poster demanding that he take the video down and threatening a lawsuit. O’Donnell was mentioned in the letter, though he didn’t threaten to sue her.
O’Donnell has made her Twitter account private.
Took her longer then it should have but ultimately Rosie did the decent thing. Good for her.

Starting next year, though, they'll be paying an extra 30 percent for the privilege of having indoor plumbing.
Draining those dollars out of resident's wallets isn't a response to a sudden increase in the price of water and won't pay for upgrades to the city's sewers. In fact, not a single dollar of revenue from the new tax will be spent on any aspect of Chicago's public infrastructure
What it will do—maybe—is shore up a municipal employee pension system that's woefully underfunded and in danger of going bankrupt within the next few years. Right now, the Municipal Employees' Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago has only enough assets to cover 32 cents of every dollar owed to retirees and current employees. Since the Illinois Supreme Court ruled in March that retirement benefits are sacrosanct and cannot be reduced, Chicago is left with only one option: find a way to pay for promises that probably never should have been made in the first place.

I love this film, but you never really get under any of the characters' skins. They all seem so unknowable. One thing I don't understand is the scene near the end where Sigourney Weaver leaves the key party with that hot young man, but the next time we see her she comes home alone and curls up on her bed in a fetal position. She seems deeply unhappy but we don't know what just occurred. Did she screw the boy or not???

"I never in a million years thought I would be up here on stage appealing for the freedom and safety of American journalists at home." That's how Christiane Amanpour began her acceptance speech for the International Press Freedom Award given to her by the Committee to Protect Journalists. Amanpour is one of those strong, steady, fearless journalistic voices. She's a respected international correspondent who has spent time the world's hot spots. She understands what attacks on the press look like. She hosts persecuted journalists on her program. She knows whereof she speaks.
Her entire speech talks about freedom of the press around the world, but she keeps returning to her fears, which she hopes won't turn into reality, of a cowed and cooperative media in this country. Here are a few excerpts.
I was chilled when [Trump's] first tweet after the election was about "professional protesters incited by the media." He walked back the part about the protesters but not the part about the media. We are not there but, postcard from the world: this is how it goes with authoritarians like Sisi, Erdoğan, Putin, the Ayatollahs, Duterte, et al.
As all the international journalists we honor in this room tonight and every year know only too well:
First the media is accused of inciting, then sympathizing, then associating—until they suddenly find themselves accused of being full-fledged terrorists and subversives. Then they end up in handcuffs, in cages, in kangaroo courts, in prison—and then who knows?
. . .
A great America requires a great and free and safe press. So this above all is an appeal to protect journalism itself. Recommit to robust fact-based reporting without fear or favor—on the issues. Don't stand for being labelled crooked or lying or failing. Do stand up together—for divided we will all fall.
. . .
I learned long ago, covering the ethnic cleansing and genocide in Bosnia, never to equate victim with aggressor, never to create a false moral or factual equivalence, because then you are an accomplice to the most unspeakable crimes and consequences.
I believe in being truthful, not neutral. And I believe we must stop banalizing the truth. And we have to be prepared to fight especially hard for the truth in a world where the Oxford English Dictionary just announced its word of 2016: post-truth.
We have to accept that we've had our lunch handed to us by the very same social media that we've so slavishly been devoted to. The winning candidate did a savvy end run around us and used it to go straight to the people. Combined with the most incredible development ever—the tsunami of fake news sites—aka lies—that somehow people could not, would not, recognize, fact check, or disregard.
. . .
I feel that we face an existential crisis, a threat to the very relevance and usefulness of our profession.
Now, more than ever, we need to commit to real reporting across a real nation, a real world in which journalism and democracy are in mortal peril, including by foreign powers like Russia paying to churn out and place false news, and hacking into democratic systems here and allegedly in upcoming crucial German and French elections too.
Writers across the country are speaking eloquently and passionately about the concerns Amanpour talks about. We ignore them at our peril.
A "Which-ACLU-America-Hater-Said-This?" Bonus Quiz: Who said he would only outlaw flag-burning "if I were king," and went on to say that the First Amendment protects "speech critical of the government. That's the main type of speech tyrants would seek to suppress." Nope, not Noam Chomsky. Not the ACLU. Not some radical First Amendment rights lawyer. It was late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who signed onto a court opinion in 1989 that flag burning is constitutionally protected. He made the statement during an interview on CNN decades after the opinion was written.

The can only appear in one and one episode only (so Marion Strong is out)
If the character appears in one episode and mentioned by name in another it doesn't count either.
Famous people playing themselves don't count. Like Rock Hudson or Don Loper.
A famous person playing someone other than himself is OK (Like Tennessee Ernie Ford would have been OK but he appeared in multiple episodes)
The same actor playing different roles, that's fine, so long as the CHARACTER is only in one episode.
No "double characters" like Teensy and Weensy (though you could pick ONE of the two)
And you all thought there wouldn't be a quiz...

JOHN AND PATSY RAMSEY 1996 CHRISTMAS NEWSLETTER
Dear Friends & Family,
It's been another busy year at the Ramsey household. Can't believe its almost over and time to start again!
Melinda (24) graduated from Medical College of Georgia and is working in Pediatric ICU at Kennestone Hospital in Atlanta. John Andrew (20) is a Sophomore at the University of Colorado.
Burke is a busy fourth grader where he really shines in math and spelling. He played flag football this fall and is currently on a basketball binge! His little league team was #1. He's lost just about all of his baby teeth, so I'm sure we'll be seeing the orthodontist in 1997!
JonBenet is enjoying her first year in 'real school.' Kindergarten in the Core Knowledge program is fast paced and five full days a week. She has already been moved ahead to first grade math. She continues to enjoy participating in talent and modeling pageants. She was named "America's Royale Tiny Miss" last summer and is Colorado's Little Miss Christmas. Her teacher says she is so outgoing that she will never have trouble delivering an oral book report!
John is always on the go travelling hither and yon. Access recently celebrated its one billion $$ mark in sales, so he's pretty happy! He and his crew were underway in the Port Huron to Mackinac Island yacht race in July, but had to pull out mid way due to lack of wind. (Can you believe that?) But, his real love is the new 'old looking' boat, Grand Season, which he spent months designing.
I spend most of my 'free time' working in the school and doing volunteer work. The Charlevoix house was on the home tour in July and will likely appear in one of the Better Homes & Gardens publications in 1997. On a recent trip to NYC, my friend and I appeared amid the throng of fans on the TODAY show. Al Roker & Bryant actually talked to us and we were on camera for a few fleeting moments!
We are all enjoying continued good health and look forward to seeing you in 1997! One final note ... thank you to all my 'friends' and my dear husband for surprising me with the biggest, most outrageous 40th birthday bash I've ever had! We'll be spending my actual birthday on the Disney Big Red Boat over the new year!
Merry Christmas and much love, The Ramseys

"Richard (Olivier' youngest son) then came with his new wife to live at the Malthouse. Joan was often away working. He remembered endless silent dinner tables. Later, when his father was too frail to decide how to spend his time, he and Joan would decide for him. "She would ask my advice, we would consult together at one end of the dining table, while my father became the child, helplessly looking on from the other. I remembered . . . the flashes of bitter resentment that would pass across his face as he struggled even to hear the plans we were making for him. And I remembered [added Richard, with the same instinct for guilt and remorse that had been such a curse to his father] the sadistic pleasure I had felt in not repeating them louder so he could participate, or dare to refuse. I had revelled in the opportunity to punish him, for being away, for being ill or whatever it was."
Tamsin (Olivier daughter) had seen the same thing. "He admired my mother as an actress and he loved her, but that was very difficult for her. It meant she went to work and couldn't look after him. He was furious with her about that. He would say we were ganging up against him."
At the time they came to live in Sussex, Richard and his wife were believers in holistic medicine, and so, up to a point, was Joan. Olivier was then taking forty-eight pills a day and sometimes drinking himself to sleep twice a day. They tried to reduce his intake of steroids and to wean him off alcohol by mixing his wine, behind his back, with a nonalcoholic wine substitute called Jung, which Richard knew was horrible stuff. Sometimes his father went along with it, or seemed to. Sometimes he showed that he knew, and that he wasn't happy with it at all.
Julie-Kate later made it clear that he wasn't: "That was one of the decisions that was made for him. He hated that. He tried to go along with it for a while, because it was meant to be healthy ... I hated it, and I remember thinking, 'You're ruining the rest of his life.' I don't think that lasted for very long, but there was a sense of everyone taking over from him, and of his being deeply frustrated." Tamsin thought Richard was brave to try, but that there came a time when she had to ask, "Is it fair?"

I am planning to move out of my parents home as soon as I find a job and my own apartment. Now my mother's friend has started asking strange and personal questions about my room, like "is it hot in summer" or "how much street noise can you hear". Yesterday I came home and found her sitting on the edge of my bed. It's obvious she is planning on taking over my room when I move out, but this makes me very uncomfortable. It's my room and it should remain that way even if I am not living in it. I mean I wouldn't like to go back home to visit and find everything is changed.
