Is Being a Loser Genetic?

Growing up, I had two three older cousins who were such losers, my family used them as a measure of what NOT to become. No motivation, no college, lived in trailers. The epitome of white trash.

I'm in my 40s now, and lately feel I'm turning into that. Not the trailer, mind you, but professionally. I've been out of work for the last year and a half, with countless interviews and rejections to the point I'm about to give up. No one wants to hire a 46 year old in today's Millennial workforce.

It's to the point now I don't even bother applying for jobs because it feels like too much effort for nothing. My husband brings home a good salary, although it would still be better for me to be working. I'm starting to consider letting go of my career ambitions and just take some menial job like retail or customer service. Then my loser transformation will be complete.

A friend told me today that his life is all debt

I've known him for a couple of years and he always lives a very lavish lifestyle. He told me today that he lies about being well off and his life is financed with debt that he can barely cover.

I told him I was shocked that he would tell me this since most people are very secretive about their fiances and he said it won't matter as he's filing for bankruptcy and everyone will know soon enough.

The Range Rover, the condo, the Cartier watches, the clothes, the trips, the meals out--all debt. Why the fuck would anyone do that to themselves?

Would you support the idea of an independent Kurdistan? Do you think the Kurds deserve their own country?

Obviously it's going to be an issue once ISIS is defeated. The Kurds have done most of the work battling those pieces of shit and will likely try to get their own country. Obviously the governments and the majority of the populations of Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran are opposed to the idea.

Personally I think the Kurds deserve their own independent country. They've been persecuted by their neighbors for a long time and have had to put up with a lot of shit.

US Open 2016

We are now at the final major of the year. It seems like just yesterday that we were basking in the heat of Melbourne.

In the top quarter of the men's draw we have Djokovic. Nole. As was asked in the Gays and Tennis 15 thread, can he regain his form after disappointing defeats? He is in a potentially tough quarter of the draw with Gasquet, Tsonga, Popsicle, Cilic and, oh yeah, Isner who is no longer the top ranked male American. In the next quarter is the injury-hobbled Nadal. He is facing several threats in Monfils, Roanic, Bautista Agut even old-timer Baghdatis. How will Rafa and his famous ass fare? Will it suffer an injury too? The next quarter of the draw features the also-injury prone Olympic silver medalist del Potro. Can he use that Olympic redemption to propel him to victory at Flushing Meadows? The quarter includes Stan Wawrinka, a former major winner; DL fave Dominic Thiem and his perky ass; and several other potential threats such as Ferrer Ern, Kyrgios and "Bird Face" Tomic. The bottom of the quarter is all about one thing: Misery. Can Andy Murray and his nice ass and thighs add another major to his Wimbledons and Olympic Golds? Will Kevin Spacey be salivating at him in the stands as does Murray's mother Judy? In Misery's quarter are Nishikori, Goffin, Simon, Granollers, Dimitrov, and Feliciano Lopez. There's no Gramps Federer this year, although he hopes to be at the Australian Open. So we will not have Mirka and her snacks or Brooklyn-Decker Roddick, model and thin, chastising her.

We move on to the women. For once Serena, at the top of the draw, is not the only news having also had disappointing losses including at the Olympics. Will she continue to be at number 1? In her quarter are Ivanovic, Stosur, Jankovic, Halep and several ovas. Granny Venus is in the next quarter along with Radwanska, penciled-in finalist Bouchard and several other ovas. The next quarter of the draw may prove interesting with Townsend v. Wozniacki and Schiavone v. Kusnetzova in the first round along with Puig!, Olympic champion. Will Puig! continue to show promise? This quarter of the draw has many ovas. The bottom of the woman's draw would hardly be worth mentioning if it weren't for Kerber and her potential to snatch, so to speak, Serena's long-time number 1 ranking. It too has some ovas and an ich.

As always, please keep the discussion civil of what should be the most civil of sports. And at long last can avowed heterosexualist Pam Shriver find a man to soothe her aching, unsatisfied loins?

TransBomer's Collapse is Complete!

I thought this deserved its own thread!

Duckling went on a Twitter blocking frenzy last night, blocking transgenders who were criticizing his role as a transgender sex worker in independent film "Anything." He even blocked transgender actress Jamie Clayton (Sense8) who had merely offered some very mild constructive criticism, saying that she had hoped he would do some good for the transgender community someday.

"Anything" is now UNRELEASABLE!

PS Transgenders should not take being blocked by Bomer so personally. He has been caught before blocking people who have said anything critical about him on Twitter, even when they did not tag his account (meaning he searches for his name on Twitter!)

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11

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

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

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

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

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

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

Colin Kaepernick explains why he doesnt stand during the National Anthem

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is LA a shoo-in to be the hosts of the 2024 Olympics Games?

Seems like the only logical choice to me. LA knows how to host big events with flair, and hosted, arguably, the most successful Olympics back in 1984 (they even earned money off of it)! Angelenos actually are in favor of hosting the Games (as opposed to Boston and San Francisco, which was met by mostly opposition).

The other three candidate cities seem more racked with problems. Paris is lovely, but there is that whole relentless terrorism going on. Does Budapest, Hungary even have the funds for such an expensive endeavor? Rome would be a fascinating choice, but the Italians will likely face the same bureaucratic obstacles that Athens, Greece did.

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

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

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

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

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

Ryan Lochte's presence is desired by Brazilian authorities

CNN

Thu August 25, 2016

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

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

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

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

Lochte would also have the opportunity to appeal any decision.

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

'Over-exaggerated'

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rudy Giuliani calls Beyoncé’s VMA performance ‘a shame’

Rudy Giuliani vs. Beyoncé, Round 2.

For the second time this year, the former New York City mayor and prominent Donald Trump surrogate is sharply criticizing Queen B — this time following the megastar’s show-stealing tribute to Black Lives Matter at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.

“It’s a shame!” Giuliani said on Fox News on Monday morning while discussing Beyoncé’s 15-minute performance, which included a visual composition about gun violence against black people in America.

Just as he did in June, the former mayor asserted, “I saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage.”

Beyoncé arrived at the VMAs with the mothers of four victims of fatal police shootings whose deaths sparked the national outrage that gave rise to the Black Lives Matter movement. Accompanying the pop superstar were the mothers of Trayvon Martin (Sybrina Fulton), Michael Brown (Lesley McSpadden), Eric Garner (Gwen Carr) and Oscar Grant III (Wanda Johnson). Fulton, McSpadden and Carr were also featured in a scene holding portraits of their slain sons in the film component of Beyoncé’s visual album “Lemonade,” which was released earlier this year.

During a performance of the song “Pray You Catch Me,” the opening track on the album, Beyoncé stood among 16 dancers all bathed in white spotlights. As she sang, the dancers fell to the ground alone or in pairs in time with beats from the music, and the lights pooling around them turned blood red, another apparent nod to the victims of gun violence.

After all 16 dancers had fallen, Beyoncé walked forward onstage alone and a black man wearing a hoodie followed her as the song ended — an image that recalled slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin. Martin was wearing a hoodie when he was deemed suspicious by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who fatally shot the young man in February 2012.

“Her dancers were circling around her and one by one, they fell to the ground, and there were red lights underneath them. And that was supposed to symbolize cops killing black individuals,” “Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt told Giuliani while discussing the performance.

Giuliani responded: “You’re asking the wrong person because I had five uncles who were police officers, two cousins who were, one who died in the line of duty. I ran the largest and best police department in the world, the New York City Police Department. And I saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage by reducing crime and particularly homicide by 75 percent.”

Giuliani scowled when co-host Brian Kilmeade commented, “And Beyoncé is an extremely popular and powerful performer, and when she does stuff like that, that message to the next generation is pretty indelible.”

“It’s a shame!” Rudy remarked. “It’s a shame!”

It was not the first time the 2008 Republican presidential hopeful attacked Beyoncé for being anti-police: He called her appearance at this year’s Super Bowl “ridiculous.” Some interpreted the costumes and choreography from her Super Bowl halftime performance of “Formation” as a political statement and homage to the Black Panther party.

Giuliani was among her critics.

“This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive,” he said during an appearance on the Fox News Channel.

Bessie Smith sang a song called "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" and it's terribly true.

When you can show them a good time, they're all over it, but if you're going through a tough time and need some help, forget it.

My therapist says I have unrealistic expectations of people and I should be more independent. I feel like I want to just keep everyone at arm's length now. I'm not in a place where I can be a good-time Charlie, and likely won't be anytime soon.

And when I am in that place again...I think I'll be too bitter. Meh.

Don Cheadle Calls Trump a “POS,” Urges Him to “Die in a Grease Fire”

Donald Trump’s compassionate and sincere outreach to black voters seems to have failed with at least one of them: Academy Award-winning actor, producer, and director Don Cheadle. Cheadle, who won a Best Picture Oscar for producing Crash and was nominated for Best Actor for his performance in Hotel Rwanda, was incensed at Trump’s wildly offensive response to the death of NBA star Dwyane Wade’s cousin, which, according to Trump, was “just what I have been saying,” whatever that means. Cheadle responded to the tweet by calling the new face of the Republican Party “truly a POS.”

Examples of Trump's projection of his own flaws and faults onto his opponents.

There are so many of these we should be able to fill this thread in no time (then submit it to the Hillary campaign, which seems to take the high road too much).

I'll start with an easy one that not so many democrat talking heads seem willing to exploit:

TRUMP: "I only worry for the country in which Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information"

Two words - Marla Maples. One cheating husband attacking another. I guess it takes one to know one. Hillary and Huma have been the victims of adultery. Trump has actually - and according to rumors much more than once - been the adulterer himself.

Winona Ryder's comeback

It's pretty well she's made a genuine comeback with the huge success of "Stranger Things," after spending years in Coventry after the shoplifting conviction. I'm glad, because I've always liked her and think she's pretty and quirky.

However, just before her fall from grace, she was the subject of many blind items that accused her of being a pain in the ass and being especially cruel and obnoxious to her personal assistants. Looking back, that (and her infamous promiscuity in Hollywood in the 90s) seem symptomatic of the problems she's had with mental illness and overmedication that ended up with her shoplifting. Has she got all that all under control? Or is she still hell on wheels?

Why has Sarah Palin gone silent?

Not that I mind her absence from media, but it's awfully strange that she went from being one of Trump's first and most ardent supporters to completely disappearing from his campaign. We're even hearing little peeps from Chris Christie and Gingrich and they're still trotting out poor old addle-minded Ben Carson, but no sign of Mama Grizzly.

When she didn't show up at the convention (campaign excuse -- Alaska's so far away), I thought it was because her son's court date for a domestic violence assault coincided. Now that that story is safely forgotten (and Trump's supporter wouldn't care anyway), she's still not around. Is it her new son-in-law's influence? He called out Trump and asked them to apologize to the Kahns. But she didn't care when Trump attacked McCain. Maybe he failed to pay her like so many he deals with.

HRC's "Trans Safer Sex Guide"

There's a lot to unpack here.

--

DICK: We use this word to describe external genitals. Dicks come in all shapes and sizes and can belong to people of all genders.

FRONT HOLE: We use this word to talk about internal genitals, sometimes referred to as a vagina. A front hole may self-lubricate, depending on age and hormones.

STRAPLESS: We use this word to describe the genitals of trans women who have not had genital reconstruction (or “bottom surgery”), [bold]sometimes referred to as a penis[/bold].

--

So "dicks" belong to men and women, but a penis — an [italic]actual[/italic] dick — is called a "strapless" (?) and belongs to women.

Got it.

Mike Curb

This guy was interesting -- the first conservative who worked for gay rights:

Encouraged to enter politics in part by Ronald Reagan, Curb was elected lieutenant governor of California in 1978, defeating the incumbent Democrat, Mervyn M. Dymally. Democratic candidate Jerry Brown was re-elected governor in the same year. During much of Brown's 1979–1980 bid to become the Democratic presidential candidate, Curb served as acting governor, vetoing legislation, issuing executive orders and making appointments; actions the California's Supreme Court upheld as Curb's constitutional prerogative.[13] Curb worked with Harvey Milk on the campaign against the Briggs Initiative and persuaded Reagan to oppose it, leading to its defeat. Curb has been a leading conservative supporter of gay rights ever since.[2] Curb lost the 1982 Republican gubernatorial nomination to California attorney general George Deukmejian. In 1986, Curb ran again for lieutenant governor as the Republican nominee against the incumbent Democrat Leo T. McCarthy in a bitterly contested race that largely centered around punishment for drug trafficking and violent crimes. A vocal opponent of drug use, Curb advocated extension of the death penalty to include drug pushers whose narcotics trafficking resulted in a death.[14] In 1980 Curb served as the National Co-Chairman of Ronald Reagan’s successful presidential campaign. Curb also served as the Chairman of the convention program in Detroit and was later appointed by President Reagan, to be chairman of the national finance committee in Washington DC.[15]

When will it be acceptable for Lorne Michaels to fire Sasheer Zamata?

I say that with no animosity. Just with the cold, hard truth. And, no, I'm not some Breitbarty/Trumpy/Libtard troll. I actually think the outrage over the lack of diversity on SNL was justified. It WAS ridiculous that all the black female roles were played by men - as though the only funny thing about black women was the fact that they are black women. And I was pleased as punch when they announced that new hire. But it turned out that Lorne and NBC panicked and rushed to cast the first funny black woman they could find. And Sasheer IS funny. As a stand-up. But a funny stand-up comedian does not necessarily make a funny sketch comedian. She is so low-key, so lacking in charisma and that special just-a-few-screws-loose nuttiness that makes the best SNL cast members so memorable. She utterly fades into the background and when she IS given a punchline she rarely lands it. She'd be much better suited for an Office-style sitcom. Low key, understated, no studio audience to work with.

Sasheer is painfully unfunny on SNL. And she's had a couple of years to warm up. She just isn't built for sketch comedy. It's time to move on. Or, more to the point, it's time for Lorne to kick it into high gear and hire a brilliant black female SKETCH COMEDIAN and THEN fire Sasheer.

Leslie is great, but she's basically "Leslie Jones" in every sketch. They need a VERSATILE and genuinely skilled sketch comedian to fill Sasheer's shoes. Sasheer needs to get back to standup and finding a nice supporting role on a sitcom. That's where her talent would shine.

And, yes, of course she's officially back for the upcoming season.

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

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

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

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

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

America's Race Relations 2016

Pessimism about race relations in America is higher than it has been in nearly a generation, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. In the aftermath of the mass shooting of police officers in Dallas and the high-profile police shooting deaths of two black men, in Baton Rouge and suburban St. Paul, Minn., more than 6 in 10 adults say race relations are generally bad, and a majority say they are getting worse.

“This is certainly the worst political climate that I’ve seen in my lifetime, but on some level the violence and hatred have always been around,” said Peniel Joseph, the founding director of the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs and a professor of history at the University of Texas.

While there is agreement that race relations are deteriorating, the common ground ends there, according to follow-up interviews with those who took part in the survey. There is no gathering consensus on how to solve the issue or who is to blame.

The Post-ABC poll finds 63 percent saying race relations are in bad shape, up from 48 percent in a Pew Research survey this spring.

When the husband started to correct something our actress was saying, she turned to him and said, “When I want you to talk, I will tell you.” The husband shut up for the rest of the dinner and just stared down at his phone.

This former A+ list mostly movie actress who will probably be an A permanently just because of her name didn’t let her marriage vows stand in the way of making it very clear to the lead singer of this B list band with the catchy name that she would be more than willing to fuck him all night long. Yeah, those were pretty much her exact words and she was pretty ticked off when he turned her down. I believe she used the word hack or something that rhymes with brick when earlier she had been gushing about the music. Caleb Followill, Julia Roberts

This war between A list mostly movie actresses who are also Academy Award winners has reached epic proportions. #1 won the award but has way less nominations. She is the one who started the fight and has also threatened to expose #2’s infidelities with her leading men. For her part, #2 has threatened to not only expose #1’s infidelities but also release recordings of #1 having sex with a co-star when #1 got too loud and everyone could hear them outside #1’s trailer. Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep

This forever A List actress is having a hard time coming to the realization that she is past her prime for many leading roles she is interested in. In her day, she was everywhere and pretty much had her pick of any movie …or any man. Always had smiles and sweet demeanor for her adoring public, but in Hollywood she was known to be extremely difficult to work with. People cringed when she came on set and she rarely spoke to anyone “beneath” her. That didn’t keep her from getting work because it was a guarantee hit if she was in it. I’ve seen firsthand what she reduces a man to once she’s decided she’s through with him. Julia Roberts

This married Academy Award nominee/winner actress was A+ list back in the day and part of a famous family. Now, she makes commercials and is pretty whiny about everything. What she wants you to believe is that she is straight and narrow. What she won’t tell you is that she got so wasted on LSD one night during the filming of a movie that she took on four guys at once. She was legendary. Julia Roberts

Nearly 9,000 unaccompanied refugee children have gone missing in Germany

The number of unaccompanied refugee children reported missing in Germany has doubled in the past six months.

According to figures released by the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) to the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung (link in German), the total number of children who’ve gone missing after their initial registration hit 8,991 in July—up from 4,749 on Jan. 1.

The BKA said the majority of the children who had disappeared from the system were between 14 and 17 years of age. More than 860 were younger than 13.

The Federal Crime Office said there was no “concrete evidence” that some of the missing children have fallen into criminal hands.

A BKA spokesperson told the paper that when unaccompanied children leave their refugee reception centers, they are registered as missing by the police. Refugee children can sometimes be registered as missing when they move to other refugee centers, as often they have no identity papers, or their names are misspelled. In other cases, the young person might leave to join family or acquaintances elsewhere without notifying the police. But there are other, darker possibilities.

“Many are missing because they are trying to reach family or community,” Federica Toscano from Missing Children Europe told Quartz. “But in many cases, they may be abducted, they may have trusted a person who wants to profit from their vulnerability, or they may be a victim of trafficking.” She said it should not be assumed that children go missing because they have a certain plan of their own.

Quality of life: Canada vs. US?

Just returned to the US after a long weekend in Canada (Montreal and Ottawa) and I'm depressed to be back. Everything just seemed more pleasant, more civil, more respectful there.

A few examples:

> Almost every bus I rode in both cities ran exactly according to the posted schedule. Never happens here. Ever.

> People on subways and buses were quiet and respectful of fellow passengers. No manspreading, no listening to music or watching videos without earbuds, no loud phone conversations on speakerphone.

> I saw baskets of beautiful flowers hanging in public on streets all over - and not just in posh neighborhoods. Can't imagine flowers like that surviving here without being damaged or stolen.

> Neighborhood parks were well-groomed and litter-free. Again, not parks for the rich or for tourists. And such parks were plentiful. Many had gorgeous functioning fountains. Some had fabulous cafes with great coffee and homemade pastries. In some pocket parks, people played piano or violin or classical guitar. It was idyllic. Furthermore, these parks weren't ringed by gates and fences. It felt like not another country, but another galaxy.

> Even in working-class areas, I almost never saw the bars on windows and tall fences and gates that are ubiquitous in many US cities.

> I spent a lot of time biking around in both cities and not once did I encounter the hostility and vulgarity I find (interestingly, more from pedestrians than from drivers) when I travel by bike in US cities.

I could give even more examples, but I think my point is clear. I don't mean to say that everything there was perfect, but day-to-day life just seemed so much nicer and less stressful.

Wondering how others with experience in both countries feel.

Desperate Lisa Marie Presley Moving Back To Graceland

Devastated Lisa Marie, 48, is so heartbroken over the collapse of her marriage to MichaelLockwood that she is moving back into her childhood home, Graceland, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned. Pals say Elvis Presley's only child told them she is heading home to Tennessee to spend time thinking about what she should do after her fourth marriage imploded and the divorce quickly turned nasty.

And while she had "sworn off men," insiders say she intends to pour her energies into rebuilding her fortune and her dead father's legacy. Sources say Lisa Marie plans to take better care of her father's estate to ensure her $700 million fortune stays intact, on the heels of her claims that her estranged husband,Lockwood, 55, may have blown through a shocking amount of her money during their 10-year marriage.

Meanwhile, friends said Lisa Marie also feared her dad's beloved Memphis mansion could end up in bankruptcy. "Graceland has fallen on hard times and is in serious danger of having to be shut down," claimed an insider. "Visitor attendance has slipped in recent years and the fear is that unless something drastic is done, business will fall off to the point that the gates will be padlocked."

Although thousands of tourists traipse through the downstairs rooms, the family quarters are strictly off-limits. They haven't changed in over 30 years, and the familiarity could be good for Lisa as her life has shifted following her latest split.

"Lisa Marie has spent so much of her life trying to flee from her past. At one point, she and husband Michael moved to a quiet English village where she served locals fish and chips so that she could feel 'normal,'" said a source. But pals said her failed marriage finally made her realize who she was — the daughter of rock 'n' roll royalty — and nothing can change that, so she will now embrace it.

In 2012, Lisa Marie laid the groundwork to go home when she made a pilgrimage back to her childhood home. Walking through the doors with her twin daughters, she cried hysterically as memories came flooding back. In an interview she said, "I walked in with my twins (Harper andFinley, now 7), looked around, and I gasped. I couldn't tell if I was going to laugh or cry."

Since filing for divorce from Michael on June 24, 2016, Lisa Marie told pals she had to make a move. And although she owns homes in L.A., Tennessee and England, she learned a valuable lesson.

Trump vs. Clinton Will Come Down to the Debates

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

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

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

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

I think Donald will trounce Hillary in the debates.

LePage said:

You try to identify the enemy. And the enemy right now, the overwhelming majority of people coming in are people of color or people of Hispanic origin.

Donald Trump weighs in on Colin Kaepernick firestorm

FILE - In this Aug. 27, 2016 file photo, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks in Des Moines, Iowa. Trump promises on Twitter that he'll make a major speech on illegal immigration on Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2016, carrying his self-declared "immigration week" into a second. Trump appears unable to make a decision on what his policy on his signature issue ought to be, an odd place for a candidate 10 weeks before Election Day and a dark harbinger of indecision for a potential president. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File) AP It was only a matter of time until presidential candidate Donald Trump weighed in on the Colin Kaepernick situation. And it was only a matter of time until Trump said exactly what you would expect him to say about Kaepernick.

“Well, I have followed it, and I think it’s personally not a good thing,” Trump told The Dori Monson Show, via Buzzfeed.com. “I think it’s a terrible thing. And, you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try. It won’t happen.”

The argument that Kaepernick’s concerns about the only country in which he ever has lived mean he should leave it easily can be turned around, however, to Trump and anyone else who is convinced that America needs to be made “great again,” which implies a clear belief that it’s currently not. And those people surely would say they have the right to stay here and try to make things better, which is precisely what Kaepernick is trying to do.

On Sunday, Kaepernick criticized both of the major-party presidential candidates, saying that Hillary Clinton has “called black teens or black kids super-predators” and has “deleted emails and done things illegally,” and calling Trump “openly racist.”

Same Song, Different Singer

Sometimes two singers can sing the same song and come out with totally different interpretations of the song. What are some of your favorites.

Cyndi Lauper originally came out with "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." It was an anthem to party girls. Greg Laswell slowed the song down and from a male perspective, he makes it sound like a guy who is under pressure to find a girl and can't really seem to find one that is right for him.

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

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.

WEHT Eric and Morné

Remember the balloon-titted muscle marys who the internet ripped to pieces after their tried to crowd-fund their FOUR wedding ceremonies and luxury honeymoon? There was an epic DL thread on them which got closed, but not before much gossip percolated about Eric's prissiness in Houston and his gym etiquette. At the time, DL predicted their marriage wouldn't last longer than a year.

Does anyone know what they are up to? Apparently Eric has just kickstarted a #hunksforhillary campaign as a means to get his tits out more prominently. What about the other one? Still married? WEHT WEHT?

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 TRACK

The primary reason the eight-track became extinct was because it was an unreliable piece of shit. They simply weren’t built to last and subsequently earned a reputation as being ticking time bombs. Truth be told, brand new eight-tracks often sounded good, and the tapes themselves were virtually indestructible: they never melted in the sun or cracked. It was the internal components that started to fall to pieces over time. If the manufacturers hadn’t opted for cheap construction, things might have turned out differently.

It was quite common for a single song on an album to fade out and fade back in as it transitioned to a new track. Eight-track tapes consisted of actually 4 tracks (each in stereo, totaling 8). Unfortunately, this meant that they had to be equal in length, which didn’t necessarily jive with the original LP. Suffice it to say, things had to be adjusted and some songs had to be split into two parts – thus the annoying song fade out and in.

It may seem trivial, but not being able to rewind become a real downside to the eight-track. It was a breath of fresh air to be able to roll backwards with the cassette tape. This negative wasn’t quite outweighed by a strong positive quality of the eight-track: it was on an infinite loop. While the cassette and record would abruptly stop when it reached the end of a side, the eight-track would play for all eternity…. or at least a few hours before it busted.

‘Morning Joe’ Mocks Donald Trump as ‘Amnesty Don,’ Twitter Loves It

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” continued its daily attack on Donald Trump on Monday morning with Joe Scarborough nicknaming the GOP nominee “Amnesty Don,” while co-host Mika Brzezinski suggested Trump’s mental health should be examined.

#AmnestyDon became the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter after Scarborough’s comments.

“Think about this, for 14 months, Amnesty Don, and a lot of people are calling him Amnesty Don. People are saying it, they’re calling him Amnesty Don. Amnesty Don, that’s what people are calling him… I’m not calling him that, Amnesty Don. Hashtag #AmnestyDon,” Scarborough said, clearly mocking the way Trump often nicknames opponents.

Scarborough went on to call Trump by the new nickname several times during the remainder of the show. Meanwhile, Brzezinski used airtime to essentially insist that Trump has mental issues.

“Let’s just take this seriously at this point — at other stages at other campaigns, a network might be snarky and get a psychologist out,” she said. “I actually think it’s time to hear from somebody in the mental health community to look at this person who’s been on television for months and give us a sense of what we have going on here. And, I’m sorry, let’s just not — let’s stop pretending we’re dealing with someone who we can completely understand. When you see somebody with problems, you know it. And there’s not anybody at this table who doesn’t think he has some sort of problem.”

Last week, Trump called the MSNBC morning show “unwatchable” in a series of harsh tweets directed at the MSNBC duo.

Trump has a bizarre history with Scarborough and Brzezinski, who were so cozy with the GOP nominee during primary season that some people even speculated that Scarborough was angling for the vice presidential gig on Trump’s ticket. “Morning Joe” took Trump serious from the day he announced, and allowed Trump to frequently call in, often lobbing him softball questions.

Brzezinski and Scarborough were accused of turning a February MSNBC Town Hall with Trump into a “puff session” — and that was before audio leaked from a hot mic that captured the trio talking during commercial breaks.

I use way too much salt in my vegetables

I love vegetables. I eat fairly healthy - usually cooking up a main protein (fillet of catfish, salmon, trout or chicken breast or pork chop etc.) with a side salad or a side of steamed, grilled or baked vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, brussel sprouts etc. But, I find myself having to use a LOT of salt to flavor the vegetables. That's whether I'm doing them simple and unadorned (say, just steamed with a touch of butter, salt & pepper) or cooking them in a marinade or sauce. I tend to evenly salt them 30 mins before preparing, allowing them enough time to absorb the salt. But inevitably, I find I need to add more after cooking to avoid blandness. What am I doing wrong? No, I don't have a salt deficiency and, no, I don't tend to like aggressively salty food.

Will Gus Van Sant ever talk about what really happened between Stipe and Phoenix?

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

So what is going on in the Music industry and what does Van Sant really know about the events surrounding the untimely deaths of both Phoenix and Cobain? Keanu Reeves, Phoenix's best friend at the time was allegedly involved with David Geffen at the time, who was having trouble with Cobain a few months before his death.

How do sociopaths learn to wind people up?

A new guy started at work a few months back and after pumping everyone for info about the company and other employees (I assume to look for ways to avoid doing any work,) he went about harassing people and playing us off each other.

I was his first target because every time he came to me looking for gossip and info I'd refer him to human resources or the company manuals.

He must have found out that I'm very anal about how packages are received and he started messing about with things in the stockroom. I guess he figured I'd assume it was the person who works with me, but sadly for him I have a security camera in the storage area and had him on video moving things around and tearing up labels.

I took him to HR and he was written up as he doesn't have permission to access the storage room. Of course it was everyone's fault but his, but he was still written up.

After having a word with him and making it clear I would smash his head in if he did anything like that again, he tried playing the HR woman and me off each other. Sadly she fell for it and he has her all worked up.

I've tried warning others about him, but every single employee tells me what a great guy he is and he could never do anything mean to anyone. They've only known him for three months but they act like he's their best friend.

Right now there are four employees who hate each other who worked together for years and didn't start arguing until this guy showed up.

How the fuck do people learn to do this to other people? Is it inborn? Learned? What?

Joe Scarborough's revenge!

Anthony Weiner was the Ted Cruz of the left

Weiner's congressional career wasn't exactly brought down by the sexting scandal. It was brought down by the sexting scandal [italic]and[/italic] by Weiner's status as a terrible co-worker.

When Weiner became embroiled in scandal in 2011, then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she'd like him to resign, as did Steve Israel, the congressman who ran the campaign committee charged with electing Democrats to the House.

Weiner's lack of intraparty support in the face of the scandal was what made his position untenable. And he lacked support within the House Democratic conference for a reason.

"Offstage, those who worked alongside him say, Mr. Weiner was a lawmaker with little patience for making laws and a single-minded focus on generating attention so he could run for mayor of New York," the New York Times reported in 2013, when Weiner was seeking his comeback in the New York mayor's race.

In one instance, Weiner threatened to hold up the Affordable Care Act in committee if he was not allowed to offer an amendment to replace it with a single-payer plan. This would have burnished Weiner's left-wing credentials. But it would not have led to the enactment of single payer — it would have forced Democratic colleagues to take another politically difficult vote. And if the amendment had passed, it would have led to the ACA being defeated in Congress.

Weiner gave up his demand to offer the amendment, but the Times reported he got a concession in exchange: A prime speaking slot on the night of passage, and the vote-tally sheet, which he held up on the cover of the Daily News.

In a way, Weiner was his party's Ted Cruz: He made a lot of noise about ideas like single-payer health care that turned on his party's ideological base, but he had few actual legislative accomplishments, and he made the hard work of enacting his party's achievable goals more difficult. This annoyed his colleagues, and it's no surprise that when a scandal had his career teetering over a ledge, they chose to push him.

So, one lesson to take from Weinergate is not to text pictures of your junk to strangers, repeatedly, even after you have promised not to do so anymore. But another lesson to take is that there are consequences to being a bad co-worker.

Freak lightning storm kills 323 reindeer in Norway

A freak lightning storm has killed 323 reindeer in a remote mountainous area of Norway, officials said on Monday.

Dead animals were found lying on top of each other, many with their antlers entangled, after the thunderstorm on the Hardanger plateau in southern Norway on Friday.

"We've never had anything like this with lightning," Kjartan Knutsen of Norway's nature surveillance agency said, adding there were sometimes isolated cases of sheep or reindeer struck down.

Reindeer tend to group together when in danger. It was unclear whether the herd had been killed by a single lightning bolt or several.

Hardanger was extremely wet on Friday, helping conduct lightning.

"The high moisture in both the ground and the air was probably an explanation for why so many animals died," Olav Strand, a senior researcher at the Norwegian Institue for Nature Research, wrote in a statement.

Experts flew in by helicopter to take samples of the dead reindeer, amid a rising stench of decay, as part of a project to monitor elk and deer for diseases. Five of the 323 animals were found alive but badly injured and were shot by wildlife officials.

It was unclear what would happen to the bodies. One option is to leave them to decay.

"It's part of the natural ecology, this is far from where people live," Knutsen said. Hardanger has about 12,000 reindeer and hunters are allowed to shoot 2,000 a year for their meat.

It's very Spielbergian, with the setting a "normal" Indiana town (like CLOSE ENCOUNTERS) filled with twelve year old boys in messy houses who love to play Dungeons and Dragons and ride their bicycles at night (like ET). And a boy disappears when he is abducted by extraterrestrial forces and his loss is mourned by his single mother (CLOSE ENCOUNTERS again) who can only communicate with her missing child in another dimension via an electric household appliance (like POLTERGEIST).

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

"Darrell Ward, Star of 'Ice Road Truckers,' Dies at 52"

Darrell Ward, star of the History Channel's reality show "Ice Road Truckers," died Sunday in a small plane crash.

The 52-year-old Ward was heading from the Great American Truck Show in Dallas to Missoula, Montana, to begin filming a pilot for a new show about the recovery of plane wrecks when his plane crashed. He and his co-pilot both lost their lives.

The adventure-loving trucker was also a father and a grandfather.

Ward, who lived by the motto, "Any road, any load," rose to fame through his four-season documentary series, "Ice Road Truckers," which followed him as he navigated icy roads. Season 5 of the show was set to begin filming in the winter.

According to a press release posted to his Facebook page, the National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.

Her mother-in-law is one of the richest women in the world - does Camilla not care about her teeth or her skin or her hair. Is this some kind of passive-aggressive game with her in-laws?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Italian officials are yet to comment on the deportation.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ok DL, help me out here with my email etiquette dilemma:

Ok DL, help me out here with my email dilemma:

Last month I wrote an article in a trade journal about a guy who had a brief moment of (relative) fame back in the 80s. He was brilliant, but I think there were some health issues, the business changed, and his moment passed.

So, after the article appeared, I got a very nice comment from the man himself asking me to contact him, and gave his contact info. It's a small obscure publication I should say so it's not like he dropped this on Twitter or something.

I was pretty pumped because I've always wanted to work with him. Years ago he had a project that was making the rounds and there was a fair bit of excitement about it but it never happened, the nature of the beast in our industry. I think it's still relevant and doable, and in fact when I was a student in did a project outline that holds up today if I say so myself.

So I emailed the guy--didn't mention the project or go all fangurly, though in my experience unless they're Oprah-famous they don't mind flattery at all. And this guy does not have an asshole rep, and this is in a business notorious for it. Quite the opposite. A week went by and not a peep. Now, when I sent the email I was at work and we had a power surge which made everything spaz out for a while but the email did show up in the SENT folder.

But I thought, what the hell, I'll fire off another one, just a quick hey, great hearing from you, not sure if you got my email, hope all's well etc. One sentence.

So now what, DL?

I'm sure he's still working, though he's no longer at the center of his field, so he might be busy, and he's over seventy so I don't know how technology adept he is or up on the rules of web correspondence. It's also true I don't really know him aside from a brief meeting when I was a student, so he could be totally flaky or nuts.

But he was the one who contacted me, after all.

So do I just let it drop or what? I have my own research and funding issues going on, but I was hoping this might turn into a fruitful collaboration. I'm really bummed.

I know I can count on you bitches to think up the meanest explanation possible so have at it.

Longtime Friendship Ruined By Politics

My good friend of many years has always been a liberal Democrat, voting and even campaigning for Democrats, including Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama. But when Trump decided to run for president last year, he suddenly switched sides to become an avid supporter of him. I was stunned. He said it was because 1) my friend is from Brooklyn, and 2) "things have gotten out of hand lately." Now he reads Breitbart and watches Fox News and promotes conspiracy theories. We have argued about this repeatedly and I have tried to be reasonable. He says we'll be friends again after the election, but now I don't think I can ever be close to him again. I can't just forget all the hateful, bigoted, and crazy things he has said. Any advice for me?

Genius, frauds, savants and hucksters

There seems to be an abundance of people lately who claim to have suffered some kind of trauma and then developed savant-like abilities. It's like that gay dude who claimed to have had a serious seizure as a kid and then developed an extraordinary memory and mathematical abilities, but everything he does can be done to a more impressive degree by perfectly ordinary people using mnemonic techniques. The scientific community, possibly driven by the desire for research grants, seem ridiculously credulous here and, in the process, give these people the veneer of scientific credibility.

I vividly remember seeing a documentary when I was a kid of a teenager who was autistic and who could look at a cityscape for only a few minutes and then draw an exact copy of that scene from memory. As far as I know, eidetic memory doesn't exist. Or at the very least has never been verified using rigorous scientific methods. Yet the idea that a "photographic memory" is possible persists.

Maybe most people just want to believe in these instances of "genius" because it validates our laziness when we can overlook the fact that what these apparently special people claim to be able to do can actually be achieved by ordinary folks through practice and dedication?

US Economic Progress Report, 2016

The previous post from 2014 was approaching the 600 comment limit. I've posted on this topic because I've read so many erroneous posts about how terrible the economy is, and how it's getting worse. In fact, employment has been getting better, and the economy has been getting stronger.

From today's NY Times:

"In an impressive sprint at 2015’s end, employers added 292,000 workers to their payrolls in December, the government said on Friday, punctuating a year of healthy growth.

The unemployment rate stayed at 5 percent last month, the Labor Department said, but that was mostly because large numbers of people went looking for work.

The department revised its earlier estimate of job creation in October and November, adding 50,000 more jobs to last year’s totals. All in all, the economy added 2.65 million jobs for the year, capping a two-year gain that was the best since the late 1990s...."

Juicy celebrity dirt!

Ben Affleck

Rude and a boor. "Boring." May possibly be more than just friends with Matt Damon and perhaps other men over the years. Has a filthy mouth. Tranny chaser. Recovering alcoholic. Has used hookers in the past; likes threeways with hookers and Matt Damon. One account has the two looking at each other (and getting off on that) while doing the pro. Has had work done on his teeth, hair, and chin. Linked with Pamela Anderson, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Garner, Salma Hayek, Lauren Holly, Famke Jannsen, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow, Britney Spears (who he cheated on Jennifer Lopez with, while Spears was seeing Justin Timberlake ).

Jennifer Aniston

Has become a big pothead through her relationship with Brad Pitt. Has jealousy issues; "can be a real bitch if you're not in her 'circle.'"Used her pull with NBC to force them to rehire her father when he was let go from Days Of Our Lives. Good tipper. Linked with Adam Duritz, Tate Donovan, Paul Rudd, and Brad Pitt.

Mariah Carey

A certain problem with faithfulness and hygiene. Her early career was funded by her sister's prostitution. Very difficult to work with, and very unpleasant to fans. (Although, as is par for the course here, I've received some e-mails contradicting this). "Has a staff member remove her tampons during concerts". Has breast implants. Linked to P. Diddy, Vin Diesel, Matt Dillon, Eminem, Grant Hill, Derek Jeter, and record company exec Tommy Mottola, who she used to get a record contract.

Jim Carrey

Unpleasant man, simultaneously rampantly insecure and hideously conceited. Extreme hypochondriac. Didn't make it through high school--and while in high school, according to one of my correspondents, "JC was incredibly mean to every student he could pick on (expecially when he was with a group of friends). Really mean, he'd pick on defenseless "losers" who had no hope of even excaping his cruelty. He would do this every chance he got." Has been known to act extremely childishly on-set, although there are some reports that one-on-one he's not bad. Has sexually harassed numerous actresses.

George Clooney

Reportedly a nice guy. Slut. Possibly swinging for both fences. Like lumberjacks, likes to try on women's clothes. May have a serious gambling problem. Linked with Lucy Liu, Ginger Lynn, Kelly Preston, Julia Roberts, Winona Ryder, Charlize Theron, and Renee Zellweger.

Johnny Depp

Difficult to work with (or perhaps not; e-mailed accounts differ). Drug user/abuser. Experimenting sexually. Linked with Naomi Campbell, Sherilyn Fenn, Jennifer Grey, Juliette Lewis, Kate Moss (who he shared addictions with), Vanessa Paradis, Christina Ricci,and Winona Ryder.

Cameron Diaz

Self-important bimbo." Germ-phobic. Alcoholic and drug user. Very hard to work for; once made her assistant shave her armpits for her. The blonde nitwit in Lost in Translation is reportedly based on her. Has very bad acne, bad body odor, and bad breath.

Leonardo Dicaprio

Slut. Reportedly aggressively bisexual. Treated Claire Danes horrendously on the set of Romeo (although I've since been told that the latter rumor isn't so and that the two are friends). Reported heavy drug & alcohol use, to the point where it interferes with his acting performance. Hygienically challenged. Punk. Allegedly made gay porn under another name. Has used hookers in the past; likes anal sex with them. Tickle fetishist

This is an 8 part series that airs Sunday nights on HBO. James Gandolfini was attached to this project before his death. Robert DeNiro was to take his place in the role of attorney which ultimately fell on John Turturro.

I find it compelling and realistic. One can't help but feel a little 'Serial' in there. In this case I think our lead character, Nasir Khan, is guilty.

What do you guys think?

Dozens of State Department officials just revolted against Obama's Syria policy

At least 51 "mid-to-high-level State Department officials" have signed a dissent channel cable breaking with President Barack Obama's policy on Syria and calling for US airstrikes on the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The cable was provided to several news outlets on Thursday, including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

"Failure to stem Assad's flagrant abuses will only bolster the ideological appeal of groups such as Daesh, even as they endure tactical setbacks on the battlefield," the cable reads, according to The Journal.

Daesh is an alternate name for ISIS, aka the Islamic State or ISIL.

"We are aware of a dissent channel cable written by a group of State Department employees regarding the situation in Syria," State Department spokesman John Kirby told The Wall Street Journal.

"We are reviewing the cable now, which came up very recently, and I am not going to comment on the contents," he said.

The officials who signed the document "range from a Syria desk officer in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs to a former deputy to the American ambassador in Damascus," and have all been involved in formulating or carrying out the administration's Syria policy.

That policy has largely emphasized defeating the Islamic State over bolstering Syria's anti-Assad rebel groups.

According to the American Foreign Service Association, the dissent channel is "a serious policy channel reserved only for consideration of responsible dissenting and alternative views on substantive foreign policy issues that cannot be communicated in a full and timely manner through regular operating channels and procedures."

It is available to all "regular or re-employed annuitant employees" of the State Department and the US Agency for International Development.

The number of officials - at least 50 - who have signed the internal document calling for military action against Assad is unusual, a former State Department official who worked on Middle East policy told The Journal.

"It's embarrassing for the administration to have so many rank-and-file members break on Syria," they said.

The cable calls for the Obama administration to place more emphasis on defeating Assad - whose brutality is seen by many experts as the driver of Syria's jihadist problem - by arming and regaining the trust of Syria's moderate opposition.

That, in turn, will "turn the tide of the conflict against the regime [to] increase the chances for peace by sending a clear signal to the regime and its backers that there will be no military solution to the conflict," the cable reportedly says.

The CIA-backed factions of the Free Syrian Army - the majority of which are Arab and battling forces loyal to Assad - have at times clashed with Pentagon-trained fighters associated with the Syrian Democratic Forces, who are predominantly Kurdish and focused on defeating the Islamic State.

Their divergent military objectives and ethnicities have bred mistrust and fighting that is ultimately counterproductive to the cause of the revolution.

Several high-ranking government officials, moreover - including Robert S. Ford, a former ambassador to Syria, and Obama's former defense secretary, Chuck Hagel - have left their positions over Obama's failure to act decisively against Assad, whose brutality continues to fuel a bloody revolution that has left over 400,000 people dead and millions displaced.

"Many people working on Syria for the State Department have long urged a tougher policy with the Assad government as a means of facilitating arrival at a negotiated political deal to set up a new Syrian government," Ford told The New York Times on Thursday.

"The moral rationale for taking steps to end the deaths and suffering in Syria, after five years of brutal war, is evident and unquestionable," the cable said. " The status quo in Syria will continue to present increasingly dire, if not disastrous, humanitarian, diplomatic and terrorism-related challenges."

'This heinous crime has been resolved': Mississippi man, 46, is charged with stabbing to death two nuns

Rodney Earl Sanders, 46, of Kosciusko, Mississippi, was charged in the deaths of Sister Margaret Held and Sister Paula Merrill, both 68, Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain said in a statement released late Friday night.

The bodies of both women were discovered Thursday after they failed to show up for work at a clinic in Lexington, Mississippi, about 10 miles from where they lived.

'Sanders was developed as a person of interest early on in the investigation,' Lt. Colonel Jimmy Jordan said in the statement.

'With the cooperation of the Durant and Kosciusko Police Departments, Holmes County Sheriff's Department and the Attorney General Office this heinous crime has been resolved.'

Merrill's nephew, David Merrill, said he learned about the arrest of Sanders early Saturday morning.

He says the family is 'thankful that he's off the streets,' but the family still has to deal with the loss.

David Merrill says he agrees with the idea of forgiveness and trying to forgive the person who killed his aunt and her fellow nun.

But he says he's 'not as strong' as his aunt, and he's not sure if he's 'capable of completely forgiving.'

Authorities said Sanders was being held in an undisclosed detention center pending a court appearance.

State Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain tells The Associated Press that as of Saturday, 'investigators believe Sanders acted alone.'

Meanwhile, in the poverty-stricken Mississippi county where the two nuns were slain, forgiveness for their killer is hard to find, even if forgiveness is what the victims would have wanted.

Sisters Margaret Held and Paula Merrill were nurse practitioners who dedicated their lives to providing health care to people in the poorest county in the state.

And as authorities sought the killer, many residents wondered how they will fill the hole the women's deaths have left.

Both women worked at the clinic, where they gave flu shots, dispensed insulin and provided other medical care for children and adults who couldn't afford it.

Their stolen car was found abandoned a mile from their home, and there were signs of a break-in, but police haven't disclosed a motive.

Authorities have not said how the women were killed, but the Rev. Greg Plata of St. Thomas Catholic Church in Lexington, where the nuns had led Bible study for years, said police told him they were stabbed.

With 44 percent of its residents living in poverty, Holmes is the seventh-poorest county in America, according to the Census Bureau.

The two nuns cultivated relationships with drug company representatives, who often left extra free samples, according to clinic manager Lisa Dew.

'This is a poor area, and they dignified those who are poor with outreach and respect for them,' Plata said. 'They treated each person as a child of God.'

Colin Kaepernick Is Righter Than You Know: The National Anthem Is a Celebration of Slavery

Before a preseason game on Friday, San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. When he explained why, he only spoke about the present: “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. … There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Twitter then went predictably nuts, with at least one 49er fan burning Kaepernick’s jersey.

Almost no one seems to be aware that even if the U.S. were a perfect country today it would be bizarre to expect African American players to stand for the Star Spangled Banner. Why? Because it literally celebrates the murder of African Americans.

Few people know this because we only ever sing the first verse. But read the end of the third verse and you’ll see why the Star Spangled Banner is not just a musical atrocity, it’s an intellectual and moral one, too:

[quote] No refuge could save the hireling and slave

[quote] From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,

[quote] And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave

[quote] O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The Star Spangled Banner, Americans hazily remember, was written by Francis Scott Key about the Battle of Fort McHenry in Baltimore during the War of 1812. But we don’t ever talk about how the War of 1812 was a war of aggression that began with an attempt by the U.S. to grab Canada from the British Empire.

However, we’d wildly overestimated the strength of the U.S. military. By the time of the Battle of Fort McHenry in 1814, the British had counterattacked and overrun Washington, D.C., setting fire to the White House.

And one of the key tactics behind the British military’s success was its active recruitment of American slaves. As a detailed 2014 article in Harper’s explains, the orders given to the Royal Navy’s Admiral Sir George Cockburn read:

[quote] Let the landings you make be more for the protection of the desertion of the Black Population than with a view to any other advantage. … The great point to be attained is the cordial Support of the Black population. With them properly armed & backed with 20,000 British Troops, Mr. Madison will be hurled from his throne.

Whole families found their way to the ships of the British, who accepted everyone and pledged no one would be given back to their “owners.” Adult men were trained to create a regiment called the Colonial Marines, who participated in many of the most important battles, including the August 1814 raid on Washington.

Then on the night of September 13, 1814, the British bombarded Fort McHenry. Key, seeing the fort’s flag the next morning, was inspired to write the lyrics for the Star Spangled Banner.

So when Key penned “No refuge could save the hireling and slave / From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,” he was taking great satisfaction in the death of slaves who’d freed themselves. His perspective may have been affected by the fact he owned several slaves himself.

With that in mind, think again about the next two lines: “And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave / O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

The reality is that there were human beings fighting for freedom with incredible bravery during the War of 1812. However, the Star Spangled Banner glorifies America’s “triumph” over them — and then turns that reality completely upside down, transforming their killers into the courageous freedom fighters.

After the U.S. and the British signed a peace treaty at the end of 1814, the U.S. government demanded the return of American “property,” which by that point numbered about 6,000 people. The British refused. Most of the 6,000 eventually settled in Canada, with some going to Trinidad, where their descendants are still known as “Merikins.”

Second, the insurance company would simply not agree with this. Think of all the damage caused.
