I’m getting Calista Flockhart vibes from this half-woman-half-elf. She looks half the size she was in Split and she was pretty darn small there.

God help me i am sleeping with a 60 year old

and it is great. Quick background. I moved to a neighborhood that is mostly older jewish widows. I didn't know it at the time. I am the young (39 lol ...but to them). hadsome gentile who moved in the neighborhood. That was until he moved in. I was walking my dog when I saw him moving in. Impossibly muscled, bald with a nice grey beard (trimmed not a hipster one). He flashed me a smile and I stopped to talk. I told him it was mostly older jewish widows so he should expect to be set up almost immeditatley. That was when it started. He replied, "what about you?" I laughed and said I was single and not interested in women. That's when I heard it. "me too." followed by a bigger smile. He invited me over that night. I won't bore you with dinner details but after dinner a few glasses of wine and we were making out. Woo, could he kiss. My toes curled. We went to his just put together bedroom. He got undressed and my god his body was sick. Grey body hair but muscled all over and a hefty log in his shorts. I knew by the way he moved in bed he wanted to fuck me. Luckily I figured as much and as prepared. Damn he was good. He insisted I spend the night, cuddled, and fucked me again in the morning. I figured the rest of my life would be awkward avoidhing him. Nope he came to my house the next day and invited me out to dinner. We have been quasi dating ever since. .....never in a million years would I think I would be dating a 60 year old man.

Accused cabin cannibal jailed for botched castration of man he met online

An Oklahoma man who castrated a volunteer at a cabin in the woods and bragged he intended to eat the testicles has been jailed.

Bob Lee Allen, 54, performed the operation on a man he met online, who later told police that his body parts were stored in a freezer and that Allen joked he was going dine on them.

Allen had been set to go on trial for the bizarre incident later this week but reached a plea deal with prosecutors on 31 August and will serve 12 years behind bars.

He was arrested by police when the 28-year-old volunteer, who had flown to Oklahoma from Virginia, went to hospital because he was bleeding from the amateur surgery.

Allen pleaded no contest to felony counts of conspiracy to commit unlicensed surgery, practising medicine without a licence and attempted distribution of a psychedelic mushroom.

He also pleaded no contest to two misdemeanour counts and was sentenced to two years in jail and 10 years in prison.

Allen told the judge he believed the plea was in his best interest because “a jury might convict me,” according to The Oklahoman.

His husband, Thomas Evans Gates III, 42, was also charged in this case and pleaded guilty to three misdemeanour charges last month.

Investigators were told by the victim that Allen claimed he had been performing gender reassignment surgeries for 15 years and had six clients ready to go under the knife.

The victim made contact with Allen through his website Eunuch Maker while searching online about castrations.

He flew to Dallas, Texas, and the couple drove the volunteer to their remote cabin in the southeast part of the state, where Allen performed a two-hour surgery using only local anaesthetic.

“After the surgery was over Allen said that he was going to consume the parts and laughed and said that he was a cannibal,” the victim told investigators, an affidavit in the case stated.

Allen and Gates were arrested after they visited the victim in hospital.

Allen has denied any claims of cannibalism.

Favorite Asian Cuisine

I don't even know if I am being PC (probably not), but I have witnessed that, at least among gay men, different Asian cuisines were the big thing at different times. Of course, Chinese seemed to still be the thing with the older guys I dated back in my 20's, but that was in the late 1990's. It's still the safest "go to". The younger guys were all about sushi and Japanese fare...made their own, bragged about their wares and being sushi "snobs" into the aughts. Then, Indian food had a minute along with Korean BBQ and all the queens wanted to go somewhere like that. Lately, both at home with my ex/occasional hookup and pal, it was Thai because all his colleagues were doing it. For some reason, Thai places were packed with bears waiting at the door in Amsterdam during Pride week. So what's your favorite?

DEAR EVAN HANSEN: Ohhh, You In Trouble, Gurl......

Review: Dear Evan Hansen Movie Is So Drab, So Banal

Of all the movie-musicals to come out this year, a surprisingly long list that includes In the Heights, Everybody's Talking About Jamie, and the forthcoming West Side Story, the buzz around the motion-picture adaptation of the Tony-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen has been practically nonexistent. The trailer was released without much fanfare. The promotion, thus far, has been minimal. It's almost like Universal is trying to sweep Dear Evan Hansen gently under the rug, a tactic that I didn't quite comprehend before I saw it, and which I deeply understand now having experienced it.

Are there any items you use a specific brand or specific item within a brand only?

I am a Persil detergent user, and I can’t get myself to use anything else. It used to be Tide, or Kirkland from Costco but over the last few years I only use Persil. I love it, I trust it, I can’t live with another brand.

The issue is that I have always used the regular one despite the fact I’ve always had sensitive skin so I need sensitive detergent, but I hate detergent for sensitive skin because I feel it doesn’t clean as well. Also, none of the stores around me sell Persil Free & Sensitive and Amazon was out of it, so I keep using the regular then end up with itchy irritated skin. I finally decided to stop being a bitch and bought Arm & Hammer’s version because it was so cheap (I got it for $6!) and it has great reviews.

I hate it. I couldn’t deal. Maybe I have a form of OCD?

I then bought the Tide version, paid $13 for it, and again, hate it. So I went back to Amazon and saw the Persil version was back in stock!!! Only 3 left! So I made sure to buy it on the spot, and it’s here.

Sometimes, it’s the small things that make us happy.

Is there anything you must have a specific type or brand to?

What's Whoopi Worth?

Whoopi Goldberg says in this video that she had blown through all of her savings and had no money to live on when she was hired to do The View.

Today, her net worth is estimated to be $60 million.

Is that possible? Supposedly, Celebrity Net Worth and similar sites are pretty reliable, using publicly available tax, real estate and other data to estimate assets.

If Whoopi Goldberg managed to attain $60 million from leveraging her role on The View, then she's made some great business decisions in recent years.

Remember, she says she started the show with no savings at all. Joy Behar has been on The View for 25 years and her estimated net worth is half Whoopi's at $30 million.

Strangely, Sunny Hostin's net worth is only estimated to be $3 million. That seems unlikely given how long she has been on The View, plus she has done an Investigation Discovery series, writes chick lit novels, etc.

Judith Butler resurfaces to further destroy the concept of "woman"

She's the author of some of the worst, most dense academic writing ever, and is as irritating as you'd expect. She's the main source of a lot of the "gender" movement and she sounds like a permanently tripping shroom addict when she gives interviews. At least we are spared her ridiculous overuse of insider terms, made-up terms, and complex words that pollutes her writing on the microscopic level.

She doesn't claim to be a woman anymore, either. She's "nonbinary", although she says this in the most roundabout and conditioned way possible. Currently she is a "they", but of course it's amorphous and unfixed, and she retains the option to change it at any moment. Like she won't come out and say directly "I am nonbinary", she has to say "When I wrote Gender Trouble, there was no category for “nonbinary” – but now I don’t see how I cannot be in that category." and this is after a meandering riff on her pronouns, which she's "surprised and impressed" when people ask for hers.

Judith, on her book "GENDER TROUBLE":

"It was meant to be a critique of heterosexual assumptions within feminism, but it turned out to be more about gender categories. For instance, what it means to be a woman does not remain the same from decade to decade. The category of woman can and does change, and we need it to be that way. Politically, securing greater freedoms for women requires that we rethink the category of “women” to include those new possibilities. The historical meaning of gender can change as its norms are re-enacted, refused or recreated."

and she also conflates sex and gender, and when she's talking about the anti-gender ideology movement, she says they "insist that sex is biological and real", which she seems to strongly disagree with, and she also seems to claim that belief is based on religion and not science. She's doing the "people who disagree with me are religious zealots / right-wing people" thing that every trans activist does.

She makes her most direct, absolute statements when she's speaking about the movement that basically says she's full of shit. I guess we can tell what she feels most strongly about - when she's challenged for her sloppy philosophy:

"This movement is at once anti-feminist, homophobic and transphobic, opposing both reproductive freedom and trans rights. It seeks to censor gender studies programs, to take gender out of public education – a topic so important for young people to discuss. And to reverse major legal and legislative successes for sexual freedom, gender equality and laws against gender discrimination and sexual violence."

None of which is actually true.

She even riffs on how she was "concerned" about the challenges faced by bisexuals to gain acceptance, and of course, she mentions "intersex" individuals. Is she wagging the dog of the TRAs, or are they informing her? She's using some of the same language they use, but it's hard to know which came first after a certain point.

She's basically every trans rights activist rolled into one. She's the UR TRA.

The company declined to share how much it paid for the titles, which also include “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” “James and the Giant Peach,” and “The Twits.”

The deal comes three years after Netflix agreed to create a slate of animated TV series based on some of Dahl’s works, including “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Matilda.”

Dangerously Mutated COVID Variant Detected in 47 U.S. States

Anew COVID variant that infected vaccinated residents and staff at a Kentucky nursing home has been detected in 47 U.S. states, according to data.

The R.1 variant spread through 45 residents and staff at the nursing home after an unvaccinated staff member triggered the infections in March, the Kentucky Department of Public Health revealed.

Due to its mutation, the variant, first detected in Japan, was able to bypass the antibody protection present in the fully vaccinated.

According to Outbreak.info, a website that collects data on COVID variants, as of September 21, R.1 has now infected more than 10,567 people around the world and has been detected in 47 states.

Maryland was found to have the highest number of cases, with 399 cases being detected since it was first found in the country.

In total, 2,259 Americans have been found with the R.1 strain which was first detected in the country on March 15, 2020. The latest case to be detected in the U.S. was on August 6 and was found in 0.5 percent of cases.

Outbreak.info also reported the strain has been found in at least 31 countries worldwide, including China, India and many nations in western Europe.

Despite the low number of infections, former Harvard Medical School professor William A. Haseltine said the new mutations found in the R.1 variant could help it spread more easily.

Writing in Forbes, Haseltine said the five variations found in R.1 can lead to "increased resistance to antibodies."

This means it could make the variant better at evading those antibodies that are created by having the vaccine and in those who have already been infected.

R.1 contains the W152L mutation in a region of the spike protein that is the target of antibodies that could reduce their effectiveness, according to the CDC.

The W152L mutation was also present in a minor variant of the Delta strain that was detected in India.

R.1 also shares a mutation with other variants, namely C241U, NSP12: P323L and D614G. D614G causes increased infections while it is not known what effect the other two have. All three mutations have been detected in strains that superseded the original Wuhan strain.

Americans are using alcohol to cope with pandemic stress: Nearly 1 in 5 report 'heavy drinking'

More than 18 months into the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S., nearly 1 in 5 Americans is consuming an unhealthy amount of alcohol, a new survey suggests.

About 17% of respondents reported "heavy drinking" in the past 30 days, according to the survey conducted by analytics firm The Harris Poll and commissioned by Alkermes, an Ireland-based biopharmaceutical company.

The survey was conducted online from March 30 to April 7 among 6,006 U.S. adults ages 21 and older. Of those, 1,003 adults reported "heavy drinking."

"Heavy drinking" was defined as having had two heavy drinking days in a single week at least twice in the previous 30 days. A "heavy drinking day" was defined as four or more drinks containing alcohol for women and five or more drinks containing alcohol for men.

Dr. Neeraj Gandotra, chief medical officer at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, said the study's findings were "not surprising." Almost 90% of individuals with substance use disorder are not in treatment, and alcohol and drug use typically worsen with isolation, Gandotra said.

.oembed-frame {width:100%;height:100%;margin:0;border:0;}

Several studies have suggested Americans are buying more alcohol and drinking more frequently during the coronavirus pandemic.

A study by the RAND Corp. last fall found the frequency of alcohol consumption in the U.S. rose 14% compared with before the pandemic. Women, in particular, increased heavy drinking days by 41%, according to the study.

Another study by researchers at the University of Arizona found "dramatic increases in harmful alcohol consumption" over the first six months of the pandemic. Greater alcohol consumption was most associated with job loss due to COVID-19, according to the study.

"While we are still learning how the COVID pandemic is impacting alcohol use, it seems clear that some people are drinking more while others are drinking less. In many studies, increases in consumption during the pandemic were linked to increases in stress," National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Director Dr. George Koob told USA TODAY.

Stress of world events and anxiety about the future can increase drinking and exacerbate symptoms of alcohol use disorder, as seen in the wake of previous disasters such as 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, Koob wrote in a blog post last year.

As the world continues to battle COVID-19, it's not clear if the trend is continuing.

"Dozens of relatively small survey studies have assessed alcohol consumption at various points during the pandemic, but it is unclear from these cross-sectional studies whether patterns of consumption are changing for people as the pandemic drags on," Koob said. "It is entirely possible that levels of consumption continued to increase over time for some people while decreasing for others."

According to the new Harris Poll survey, many respondents who reported heavy drinking said that, over the last 12 months, they experienced negative mental, physical and psychosocial impacts.

Three in 10 said they continued to drink despite it making them feel depressed or anxious or adding to another health problem. About 1 in 4 reported they continued to drink after experiencing a memory blackout. More than one in five 1 in 5 experienced withdrawal symptoms when the effects of alcohol were wearing off. And 23% gave up or cut back on activities that were important or interesting to them in order to drink.

Ryan Murphy’s Impeachment: D for Dud

Highlights:

TV docudramas always walk a fine line between illumination and exploitation. But American Crime Story‘s first installment, The People v. O.J. Simpson, broke the mold by doing the impossible: It gave us a fresh perspective on a story we thought we already knew so well. It had depth, it had nuance, it made us rethink the legacies of infamous media pariahs… and I say all that to emphasize that Impeachment: American Crime Story does none of this.

Despite its lofty pedigree, Impeachment is a disaster: a schlocky, overheated melodrama that’s only a degree or two removed from a Saturday Night Live parody. It might as well be a quickie TV movie that aired on Fox in 1998 with a title like Intern Affairs.

Impeachment also falls victim to Murphy’s worst storytelling instincts: shallow characterization, shock value substituting for genuine surprise, and dialogue that tells instead of showing. The characters here say exactly how they feel and what they’re thinking — and loudly. (“Stop worrying about Whitewater!” one White House official yells to another.) The whole project has a gloomy, bad energy to it, feigning gravitas with ponderous cutaways to presidential portraits and justice statues. Murphy takes a backseat to Burgess in the credits — she wrote four of the first six episodes — but his fingerprints here are unmistakable.

THE TVLINE BOTTOM LINE: FX’s American Crime Story franchise plummets with Impeachment, a trashy, exploitative trainwreck that borders on parody.

What Brian Laundrie's Family Has to Say After Gabby Petito Is Confirmed Dead

The family of Gabby Petito's fiancé Brian Laundrie, who authorities named a person of interest after the 22-year-old influencer went missing, has broken their silence about her death.

His parents, who shared a North Port, Fla. home with the couple, issued a statement through their lawyer after the FBI and police confirmed on Tuesday, Sept. 21, that a body they found in Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming was the missing 22-year-old travel blogger and influencer. Her death has initially been ruled a homicide.

"May Gabby Rest In Peace," Roberta and Christopher Laundrie said in a statement to E! News.

They made no further comment, including any remarks about their 23-year-old son, who authorities have been trying to find since his parents reported him missing less than a week after Gabby's parents reported her disappearance.

She and Brian had embarked on a cross-country road trip in a van and he returned alone on Sept. 1 to the home they shared with his family; 10 days later, Gabby's parents, who had lost contact with their daughter in late August, reported her missing.

Meanwhile, Gabby's family has shared several tributes to her on social media. "Gonna miss you till the end gabbs #justiceforgabby," her younger brother, T.J. Schmidt, wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of her standing in front of a wolf mural.

On Sunday, Sept. 19, the day Gabby's body was found but not yet officially identified, T.J. shared a photo of Gabby standing in front of an angel-wings mural, writing, "I don't even know what to say. I'm at a total loss. My heart is shattered #justiceforgabby."

Before disappearing himself, Brian refused to speak with authorities about Gabby's whereabouts. While he is a person of interest in the case, he has not been charged and is not suspected of a crime, police have said.

His family's lawyer, Steven P. Bertolino, said in a statement on Sept. 15, a day after Brian's parents say they last saw their son, "In my experience, intimate partners are often the first person law enforcement focuses their attention on in cases like this, and the warning that 'any statement will be used against you' is true, regardless of whether my client had anything to do with Ms. Petito's disappearance. As such, on the advice of counsel, Mr. Laundrie is not speaking on this matter."

The lawyer had also said in a statement on Sept. 14, "This is understandably an extremely difficult time for both the Petito family and the Laundrie family," adding, "On behalf of the Laundrie family, it is our hope that the search for Miss Petito is successful and that Miss Petito is re-united with her family."

A mother and daughter in LA have been charged with murder after performing an illegal butt lift operation, police say

A mother and daughter were charged with murder in connection to a woman who died after receiving an illegal butt lift operation in Los Angeles, California, police said.

The victim, Karissa Rajpaul, 26, shared a video of herself on social media during the operation, which took place at a private home in the Encino neighborhood in September 2020, the Los Angeles Police Department told NBC4.

Rajpaul, who moved to LA from South Africa to try and work in the adult entertainment industry, received three separate procedures and passed away immediately after the third.

Police have arrested and charged Libby Adame and her daughter, Alicia Gomez, with murder.

"These individuals have no medical training," Alan Hamilton, LAPD deputy chief, told ABC7. "They're not experienced and they're putting people's lives at risk."

Now the LAPD is worried there could be more victims and is encouraging women to come forward.

"As we looked into this investigation, we did find that it is occurring a lot," Bob Dinlocker, an LAPD detective, told NBC4. "The internet is filled with these horror stories where they're cutting the medical grade silicone with the stuff that you would caulk your windows with."

He said once some of these chemicals - that are not intended for use in humans - hit the bloodstream they attack the heart, the brain, and the kidneys.

LAPD is warning women to avoid these underground procedures, which some people seek out because they are less expensive than having the procedure done by a professional.

Police said Adame and Gomez were charging $3,500 to $4,500 for the butt lift, compared to $10,000 to $15,000 that a board-certified professional would charge, NBC4 reported.

Wuhan scientists planned to release coronaviruses into cave bats 18 months before outbreak

Wuhan scientists were planning to release enhanced airborne coronaviruses into Chinese bat populations to inoculate them against diseases that could jump to humans, leaked grant proposals dating from 2018 show.

New documents show that just 18 months before the first Covid-19 cases appeared, researchers had submitted plans to release skin-penetrating nanoparticles containing “novel chimeric spike proteins” of bat coronaviruses into cave bats in Yunnan, China.

They also planned to create chimeric viruses, genetically enhanced to infect humans more easily, and requested $14million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) to fund the work.

Papers, confirmed as genuine by a former member of the Trump administration, show they were hoping to introduce “human-specific cleavage sites” to bat coronaviruses which would make it easier for the virus to enter human cells.

When Covid-19 was first genetically sequenced, scientists were puzzled about how the virus had evolved such a human-specific adaptation at the cleavage site on the spike protein, which is the reason it is so infectious.

The documents were released by Drastic, the web-based investigations team set up by scientists from across the world to look into the origins of Covid-19.

In a statement, Drastic said: “Given that we find in this proposal a discussion of the planned introduction of human-specific cleavage sites, a review by the wider scientific community of the plausibility of artificial insertion is warranted.”

The proposal also included plans to mix high-risk natural coronavirus strains with more infectious but less dangerous varieties.

The bid was submitted by British zoologist Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance, the US-based organisation, which has worked closely with the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) researching bat coronaviruses.

Team members included Dr Shi Zhengli, the WIV researcher dubbed “bat woman”, pictured below, as well as US researchers from the University of North Carolina and the United States Geological Survey National Wildlife Health Centre.

Darpa refused to fund the work, saying: “It is clear that the proposed project led by Peter Daszak could have put local communities at risk”, and warned that the team had not properly considered the dangers of enhancing the virus (gain of function research) or releasing a vaccine by air.

Grant documents show that the team also had some concerns about the vaccine programme and said they would “conduct educational outreach … so that there is a public understanding of what we are doing and why we are doing it, particularly because of the practice of bat-consumption in the region”.

Angus Dalgleish, Professor of Oncology at St Georges, University of London, who struggled to get work published showing that the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) had been carrying out “gain of function” work for years before the pandemic, said the research may have gone ahead even without the funding.

“This is clearly a gain of function, engineering the cleavage site and polishing the new viruses to enhance human cell infectibility in more than one cell line,” he said.

Daszak was also behind a letter published in The Lancet last year which effectively shut down scientific debate into the origins of Covid-19.

Viscount Ridley, who has co-authored a book on the origin of Covid-19, due for release in November, and who has frequently called for a further investigation into what caused the pandemic in the House of Lords, said: “For more than a year I tried repeatedly to ask questions of Peter Daszak with no response.

“Now it turns out he had authored this vital piece of information about virus work in Wuhan but refused to share it with the world. I am furious. So should the world be.

“Peter Daszak and the EcoHealth Alliance (EHA) proposed injecting deadly chimeric bat coronaviruses collected by the Wuhan Institute of Virology into humanised and ‘batified’ mice, and much, much more.”

#WhatAboutDanielRobinson?

PHOENIX —After authorities on Sunday announced that they may have found the remains of Gabby Petito in Wyoming, a viral tweet reminded the public to keep 24-year-old Daniel Robinson in mind ⁠— a geologist who went missing in the desert just outside of Buckeye, Arizona, a little over two months ago.

But that was not all: A petition made by the Robinson family was created two weeks ago with the intention of holding accountable the Buckeye Police Department, the investigative agency on the case.

The petition has garnered more than 8,000 signatures as of Monday afternoon.

In it, his father David Robinson, states he has done more to find his son than the law enforcement agency since Daniel went missing.

"This petition gives (my family) the ability to have their voices heard. Daniel's family will feel empowered knowing that they have the community's support and an agreed upon desire to see that everything is being done to find Daniel, my son, her son, their brother, their nephew, their grandchild, and their cousin home," the petition stated.

More than that, David Robinson wants the police to criminally investigate his son's disappearance due to findings from his own private investigator, including allegations that Daniel's Jeep was driven after crashing and the crash site may have been staged.

Robinson was last seen the morning of June 23 driving near Sun Valley Parkway and Cactus Road in his 2017 blue Jeep Renegade.

Robinson did not tell anyone where he was going or why he was leaving and has not been heard from since, officials said.

Police conducted searches by air and land, pulled phone records and checked hospitals for Robinson to no avail. He was placed in the national database for missing persons shortly thereafter.

Since then, the Buckeye Police Department has worked with outside agencies to search more than 70 square miles in an effort to locate Daniel. Investigators have utilized UTVs, cadaver dogs, and air support including a drone and a helicopter, according to a statement issued Thursday.

A landowner found Robinson's significantly damaged Jeep on July 19 approximately four miles southwest of the job site Robinson was last seen at, according to police.

Robinson's Jeep was discovered in a ravine, appearing to have rolled and landed on its side, police said. The vehicle's airbags were deployed and evidence indicates that Robinson was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

His clothes, cellphone, wallet and keys were found at the scene, police said.

Given the state of Robinson's vehicle, foul play is not suspected, which is why his case is not a criminal investigation, police confirmed on Monday.

Police have also confirmed that a human skull investigators found July 31 in the desert south of the Jeep does not belong to Robinson.

Despite online reports of other human remains found in the area, the department confirmed that there were none, the statement read. The other remains found in the search were determined to be animal bones, according to police.

Robinson is 5-foot-8, has black hair and brown eyes and does not have a right forearm or hand, police said.

Robinson was hired as a field geologist and moved to Phoenix after he graduated from college in 2019. He oversaw sites located in remote desert areas and often in extreme conditions and traveled long distances to work on projects, according to the GoFundMe page set up by Robinson's family.

The GoFundMe account set up for Robinson said he has an "innate passion" for adventure and is known to travel at opportune moments, but always communicates with friends and family about his travel plans.

Since the GoFundMe was created, the page has raised nearly $40,000 as of Monday afternoon.

The department continued to analyze evidence and explore leads, the statement stated.

Should I get the iPhone 13?

Here me out.

I bought the iPhone 12 mini last year. I’m very happy with it. There are rumors that iPhone will stop making the mini versions of their phones because of lack of demand. I would hate anything bigger because it would be too big in my pant pockets.

Verizon is giving away the iPhone 13 mini away for free (you have to buy it for $700 but you get it back in 24 monthly payments). I would have to pay off my iPhone 12 mini (I owe $500) and trade it in.

Although the 13 is only an incremental improvement, from the reviews, it would be the most current technology, particularly if I expect to keep the phone a long time (I kept the 6s for 5 years, I believe).

So is it worth all the trading in and blah blah to get the iPhone 13 mini for free—but after I shell out $700 and Verizon returns that money to me over 2 years?

Haitian migrants revolt in custody and seize control of privately contracted bus

A large white bus bound for San Antonio, Texas, was overtaken Monday afternoon during the two-and-a-half-hour trip from the international bridge in Del Rio. The migrants on board had been picked up from the makeshift migrant camp, where thousands are waiting to be taken into custody, two federal law enforcement agents told the Washington Examiner.

"They did break out of the bus, and they did escape," a senior federal law enforcement official confirmed to the Washington Examiner on Tuesday.

It is not clear which federal agency, Customs and Border Protection or Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was overseeing the transport. CBP initially apprehends, transports, and processes illegal immigrants, while ICE is responsible for longer-term detention and removal from the country. Neither agency responded to requests for comment.

However, ICE told a local media outlet that "several noncitizens attempted to flee the contracted bus."

Xi Jinping Aims to Rein In Chinese Capitalism, Hew to Mao’s Socialist Vision

Xi Jinping’s campaign against private enterprise, it is increasingly clear, is far more ambitious than meets the eye.

The Chinese President is not just trying to rein in a few big tech and other companies and show who is boss in China.

He is trying to roll back China’s decadeslong evolution toward Western-style capitalism and put the country on a different path entirely, a close examination of Mr. Xi’s writings and his discussions with party officials, and interviews with people involved in policy making, show.

For most of the 40 years after Deng Xiaoping first unleashed economic reforms in China, Communist Party leaders gave market forces wider room to flourish. That opening helped lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and created trillions of dollars in wealth, but also led to rampant corruption and eroded the ideological basis for continued Communist rule.

In Mr. Xi’s opinion, private capital now has been allowed to run amok, menacing the party’s legitimacy, officials familiar with his priorities say. The Wall Street Journal examination shows he is trying forcefully to get China back to the vision of Mao Zedong, who saw capitalism as a transitory phase on the road to socialism.

Mr. Xi isn’t planning to eradicate market forces, the Journal examination indicates. But he appears to want a state in which the party does more to steer flows of money, sets tighter parameters for entrepreneurs and investors and their ability to make profits, and exercises even more control over the economy than now. In essence, this suggests that he aims to rewrite the rules of business in what could someday be the world’s biggest economy.

“China has entered a new stage of development,” Mr. Xi declared in a speech in January. The goal, he said, is to build China into a “modern socialist power.”

Mr. Xi’s overhaul has generated more than 100 regulatory actions, government directives and policy changes since late last year, according to a Journal tally, including steps aimed at breaking the market dominance of companies such as e-commerce behemoth Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., conglomerate Tencent Holdings Ltd. and ride-sharing leader Didi Global Inc.

The government’s recent measures to tame housing prices are worsening a cash crunch at China Evergrande Group , a heavily indebted real-estate developer, sending chills across global markets. Beijing is unlikely to bail out Evergrande the way it has rescued many state firms, analysts say, and could further tighten the regulatory screws on other private developers.

Mr. Xi has signaled plans to go much further. During a leadership meeting in August, he emphasized a goal of “common prosperity,” which calls for a more equal distribution of wealth. This would be achieved in part through more government intervention in the economy and more steps to get the rich to share the fruits of their success.

The new voting rights bill would make election day a national holiday in an effort to encourage more people to vote.

I think making a Tuesday a holiday will just make more people take Monday off also and make a long weekend for travel not voting. Then there are all the stores which won't close, so those people won't get a day off to vote, no day off for fast food workers, retail workers, etc.

Maddeningly Annoying Social Media Comments

Things that make me scream, if only inside my head:

—When someone writes something, and then follows it with "That's it. That's the post." (Do people feel witty when they write that? Why not just make the point without tacking on a lame Zoomer tagline?)

—When someone responds with ^^THIS! (You agree with a comment. Can you say you agree with it? Better yet, can you add a thought that advances the sentiment? Why "THIS!"?)

—This one transcends social media, but: "I don't disagree." (No one can agree anymore. The closest anyone can come is not to disagree.)

This is Orwellian. It's Newspeak. It represents Orwell's idea of dumbing down the public by limiting vocabulary and thereby limiting the ranges of people's thoughts and feelings. People don't engage in discussions anymore; they argue for the sake of winning and not learning, or else they say "THIS!" And yes, I realize no one cares. People today are happy to become dumber and more limited in every way. I'm aware. I still hate it.

Fauci mulls ‘mix and match’ strategy for COVID-19 vaccine boosters

The federal government may determine in the coming weeks that Americans can “mix and match” their initial COVID-19 vaccine with booster shots from a different manufacturer, Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Monday.

Ongoing studies suggest it may be safe and even preferable to boost one manufacturer’s product with a jab from another vaccine maker, said Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden.

“We are in the process of doing those studies right now,” Fauci said in an interview with McClatchy. “We already have the data that was recently published actually of using Moderna as the boost for any of the other three vaccines – Moderna against Moderna, Moderna against Pfizer, and Moderna against J&J.”

"Mommie Dearest" Still Crazy After All These Years

The film version of "Mommie Dearest" was released 40 years ago, when it premiered Sept. 16. As an admirer of both Joan Crawford and Faye Dunaway, I found the film fascinating but mostly a lost opportunity. My look at the movie "Mommie" isn't so much a review, but about how the adaptation of Christina Crawford's still-controversial book satisfied nobody involved: star Dunaway, author Christina, or Joan's defenders.

Today makes 55 years since “That Girl” debuted! (September 8th, 1966)

Did you like it???

55 years ago today, That Girl premiered. It ran on ABC from September 8, 1966 to March 19, 1971, with a total of 136 half-hour episodes spanning over five seasons. It starred Marlo Thomas as the title character Ann Marie, an aspiring but only sporadically employed actress, who moves from her hometown of Brewster, New York to try to make it big in New York City. Ann has to take a number of offbeat "temp" jobs to support herself in between her various auditions and bit parts. Ted Bessell played her boyfriend Donald Hollinger, a writer for Newsview Magazine; Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp played Lew Marie and Helen Marie, her concerned parents. Bernie Kopell, Ruth Buzzi and Reva Rose played Ann and Donald's friends. That Girl was developed by writers Bill Persky and Sam Denoff, who had served as head writers on The Dick Van Dyke Show with which Thomas's late father, Danny Thomas, was closely associated earlier in the 1960s. Each episode starts with a cold open, in which an odd incident occurs or a discussion foreshadows the episode's story. The scene almost always ends with someone exclaiming "...that girl!", just as Ann wanders into the shot and the character notices her. The show's logo appears over a freeze-frame shot of Ann. The opening credits for Season 1 featured Thomas, in character, strolling the streets of New York. From Season 2 to the end of the show's run, the opening shot was the view from a Pennsylvania Railroad passenger train crossing the New Jersey Meadowlands between Newark and Penn Station near Laurel Hill Park, then Thomas flying a kite in Central Park, and seeing and exchanging winks with her double in a store window. Lyrics were added to the theme for the final season, written by series co-creator Sam Denoff, sung by Ron Hicklin.

That Girl was one of the first sitcoms to focus on a single woman who was not a domestic or living with her parents. Some consider this show the forerunner of the highly successful Mary Tyler Moore Show, Murphy Brown, and Ally McBeal, and an early indication of the changing roles of American women in feminist-era America. Thomas' goofy charm, together with Bessell's dry wit, made That Girl a solid performer on the ABC Television Network, and while the series, in the overall ratings, never made the top thirty during its entire five-year run, the series did respectably well.

At the end of the 1969–1970 season, That Girl was still doing moderately well in the ratings; however, after four years, Thomas had grown tired of the series and wanted to move on. ABC convinced her to do one more year. In the beginning of the fifth season, Don and Ann became engaged, although they never actually married. The decision to leave the couple engaged at the end of the run was largely the idea of Thomas herself. She did not want to send a message to young women that marriage was the ultimate goal for them and she was worried that it would have defeated the somewhat feminist message of the show.

FDA advisory panel rejects Pfizer booster shots

WASHINGTON (AP) — An influential federal advisory panel has soundly rejected a plan to offer Pfizer booster shots against COVID-19 to most Americans.

The vote Friday, 16-2, was a blow to the Biden administration’s effort to shore up people’s protection against the virus amid the highly contagious delta variant.

Over several hours of discussion, members of the Food and Drug Administration panel of outside experts voiced frustration that Pfizer had provided little data on safety of extra doses.

And they complained that data provided by Israeli researchers about their booster campaign might not be suitable for predicting the U.S. experience.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. AP’s earlier story follows below.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration’s embattled plan to dispense COVID-19 booster shots to most Americans faced its first major hurdle Friday as a government advisory panel vigorously debated whether to endorse extra doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

Scientists inside and outside the government have been divided in recent days over the need for boosters and who should get them, and the World Health Organization has strongly objected to rich nations giving a third round of shots when poor countries don’t have enough vaccine for their first.

The panel, made up of outside experts who advise the Food and Drug Administration, weighed a less than clear-cut case: While research suggests immunity levels in those who have been vaccinated wane over time and boosters can reverse that, the Pfizer vaccine is still highly protective against severe illness and death, even amid the spread of the highly contagious delta variant.

The FDA experts were scheduled to vote on one basic question: Does the evidence show that a Pfizer booster would be safe and effective for people 16 and older? In the event of a yes vote, the FDA is expected to quickly approve boosters for Pfizer's shot.

But that is just one step in the process. The more thorny question of who should get the shots and when will be debated on Wednesday by advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC generally adopts the recommendations of the group, which sets policy for U.S. vaccination campaigns.

The CDC has said it is considering boosters for older people, nursing home residents and front-line health care workers, rather than all adults.

Separate FDA and CDC decisions will be needed in order for people who received the Moderna or J&J shots to get boosters.

At Friday's meeting, the FDA panelists heard full-throated arguments about the need for boosters from both Pfizer and health officials from Israel, which began offering boosters to its citizens in July.

Sharon Alroy-Preis of Israel’s Ministry of Health said the booster dose improves protection tenfold against infection in people 60 and older.

“It’s like a fresh vaccine,” bringing protection back to original levels and helping Israel “dampen severe cases in the fourth wave,” she said.

And representatives for Pfizer argued that it is important to shore up immunity before protection against severe disease starts to erode. A company study of 44,000 people showed effectiveness against symptomatic COVID-19 was 96% two months after the second dose, but had dropped to 84% by around six months.

Both Pfizer and the Israeli representatives faced pushback from panelists. Several expressed skepticism about the relevance of Israel’s experience to the U.S. Also complicating the committee’s decision: No one yet knows the antibody level below which infection is likely and boosters are needed.

“That would be a great way for us to monitor if we really needed booster shots,” said Dr. James Hildreth, president of Meharry Medical College.

FDA vaccine reviewer Dr. Philip Krause raised a host of questions about the reliability of one of the key studies Pfizer said showed that immunity is waning.

Another concern was whether third doses would exacerbate serious side effects.

Jennifer Lopez says she is a 'scarce asset' because she can sing, dance and act

Jennifer Lopez has cast her tentacles far and wide, not just into music and movies but also fashion, perfume and skincare.

And in the new issue of Adweek - which has named the Bronx native Adweek's 2021 Brand Visionary - the 52-year-old explains how she does it all as her boyfriend Ben Affleck also weighs in on her success.

'I don't think you start thinking about a personal brand. You become it because of what you create, what you do, how you live and who you are,' said the Hustlers star.

She went on to say that she is a rare star.

'I am the scarce asset—somebody who is a proven creator, artist and entrepreneur who has an ability to really connect with people,' said the On The Floor singer.

'That is my blessing, and what I feel is an incredible, incredible gift that I’ve been given from God. And I don’t take it for granted.'

Boyfriend Affleck said, 'All I can tell you is that I have seen firsthand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them.'

'I am in awe of what Jennifer’s effect on the world is. At most, as an artist, I can make movies that move people. Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country. That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect.'

Her manager Benny Medina talked to the site as well about his client.

'Jennifer is a natural artist, creator and founder who does a lot of things great,' notes longtime manager Medina, CEO, The Medina Company.

'She is limitless. She is resilient. Authenticity is her brand, and with that she chooses to use her influence to help provide others with opportunity and to enhance their lives.

'Making things better, more beautiful and meaningful is at the core of everything that she does. She strives to make the lives of people better and more inspired.

The VANDERBILTS

Anderson Cooper finally comes to terms with his heritage!

(I would have used an existing thread but that cun... Miss Muriel, closed the thread)

When eleven-year-old Cornelius Vanderbilt began to work on his father’s small boat ferrying supplies in New York Harbor at the beginning of the nineteenth century, no one could have imagined that one day he would, through ruthlessness, cunning, and a pathological desire for money, build two empires—one in shipping and another in railroads—that would make him the richest man in America. His staggering fortune was fought over by his heirs after his death in 1877, sowing familial discord that would never fully heal. Though his son Billy doubled the money left by “the Commodore,” subsequent generations competed to find new and ever more extraordinary ways of spending it. By 2018, when the last Vanderbilt was forced out of The Breakers—the seventy-room summer estate in Newport, Rhode Island, that Cornelius’s grandson and namesake had built—the family would have been unrecognizable to the tycoon who started it all.

Now, the Commodore’s great-great-great-grandson Anderson Cooper, joins with historian Katherine Howe to explore the story of his legendary family and their outsized influence. Cooper and Howe breathe life into the ancestors who built the family’s empire, basked in the Commodore’s wealth, hosted lavish galas, and became synonymous with unfettered American capitalism and high society. Moving from the hardscrabble wharves of old Manhattan to the lavish drawing rooms of Gilded Age Fifth Avenue, from the ornate summer palaces of Newport to the courts of Europe, and all the way to modern-day New York, Cooper and Howe wryly recount the triumphs and tragedies of an American dynasty unlike any other.

Written with a unique insider’s viewpoint, this is a rollicking, quintessentially American history as remarkable as the family it so vividly captures.

Carl Clemons-Hopkins Emmy Dress. YASSSS KWEEN! Rofl.

Carl Clemons-Hopkins became the first non-binary person to be nominated for best supporting actor at the 73rd Emmy Awards on Sunday.

To celebrate, the "Hacks" actor walked the red carpet in a custom Christian Siriano outfit inspired by the non-binary flag, according to the designer. The actor's white button-down shirt, black trousers, purple belt, and purple and yellow train featured the colors of the flag.

The concept behind the look was Clemons-Hopkins' idea, Siriano said in a statement sent to Insider.

"Carl and their stylist Jyotisha sent me a few inspiration ideas so I went with something that felt powerful but elegant. Carl wanted to represent the non-binary colors which is why I felt the belt was just the right amount of representation," Siriano said.

"It was an honor to create this look for Carl and it will definitely go down as one of my most memorable looks that really has a meaningful purpose behind it," he added.

The outfit was created as "an homage to the non-binary flag and celebrating our identities and beauty beyond the heteronormative standard," Clemons-Hopkins' stylist, Jyotisha Bridges, wrote in an Instagram post on Sunday.

The star reflected on how they came to identify as non-binary in an essay penned for The Hollywood Reporter in July, writing that they began to identify as queer in college before exploring gender norms during lockdown.

"In the past five or six years, I've been doing a lot of studies on the origins of masculinity, where all these rules and norms came from. At the same time, there's been so much violence and misunderstanding with trans folk and other queer people," Clemons-Hopkins wrote.

"I was figuring out where I fit in all of that. And then quarantine hit - there was so much time to explore my gender identity, or lack of gender identity," they added.

The actor went on to describe how this has altered their experience playing Marcus in "Hacks," a character they described as "a man who identifies as a man."

"I would go into work situations and think, 'You have to make sure you're being a man.' Now, I can just worry about being the character. It's incredibly freeing to focus on a character knowing that I myself am more resolved," they wrote.

Representatives for Siriano did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Dumb Reality Star Lines Up Third Husband Less Than a Year After A Second Divorce

Therapy is cheaper than divorce, honey.

Christina Haack is engaged!

The Christina on the Coast star, 38, announced her engagement to her boyfriend Joshua Hall on Monday. The mom of three shared three photos of her and the Austin-based realtor enjoying a sunset dinner in Los Cabos, Mexico, where they're currently celebrating his birthday, with a diamond ring featured in two of the photos. The pair are sharing a kiss in the third.

Haack captioned the post with five emojis: A heart, an infinity sign, a lock, a key and a ring. Fans took to the comments section to send their congratulations.

The HGTV star also changed her Instagram bio to read: "Mommy. 💍 Josh Hall."

The engagement news comes two months after PEOPLE exclusively confirmed in early July that Haack was in a new relationship, as she and Hall celebrated her 38th birthday with a getaway to Mexico.

"They recently started dating each other and it was an immediate, real connection," a source said at the time. "They've enjoyed getting to know each other one-on-one without outside noise."

The HGTV host later revealed that she and Hall had been dating for months, writing in an Instagram post, "When we met this past spring, the synchronicities hit us so hard and fast they were impossible to ignore."

"I felt immediately crazy protective over him and wanted to keep him for myself and get to know each other before the tornado (media attention) hit," she continued. "We've had a few solid months of just us getting to know each other and I've loved every second of it."

Since going public with their relationship, Haack has not been shy about showing her love to Hall on social media. In late July, she praised Hall in a sweet tribute on her Instagram, calling him her "Ride or Die."

"Some people are lucky enough to get forever the first time but no one should be shamed for things not working out and no one knows what goes on behind closed doors," she captioned a photo of the pair sitting in a car.

Haack went on to tell followers to "remember that before making judgements and assumptions," adding that "this woman / mama is still lucky enough to have this man choose me."

Her marriage to Hall will be the third for Haack. She was previously married to her Flip or Flop costar Tarek El Moussa from 2009 to 2018 and Celebrity IOU: Joyride host Ant Anstead from 2018 to 2021.

Haack shares daughter Taylor Reese, 10, and son Brayden James, 6, with El Moussa, and son Hudson London, 2, with Anstead.

Shawn Mendes says he doesn't trust Taylor Swift's boyfriend Joe Alwyn because his eyes are too blue

Shawn Mendes recently opened up about his friendship with Taylor Swift - and his suspicious impression of her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, whom he's never met.

While taking a lie detector test in a new video for Vanity Fair, Mendes was asked whether he still keeps in touch with his early mentor. The "Stitches" crooner was one of the opening acts for Swift's "1989" tour in 2014. He also made a cameo during the Pasadena stop on her 2018 "Reputation" tour.

"I always am asking her for advice on music," Mendes said, adding that he last texted Swift "maybe a month ago."

He was then asked whether he "approves" of Swift's longtime boyfriend, whom she apparently began dating in 2016.

"I've never personally met Joe, but he looks like a sweet guy," Mendes said.

When the polygraph examiner told Mendes he was being "deceptive," the singer immediately changed course.

"I'm lying? A little bit? Yeah, I mean, he's kind of got a little bit of a villain look about him," Mendes said, holding up a photo of Alwyn. "I mean, he looks like a nice guy - but he, at any movement, could turn into a villain."

"He's got really blue eyes and I struggle with eyes that blue," he added. "I find it easier to trust brown eyes."

Mendes did not elaborate on his suspicion of Alwyn, but did say he felt he'd "talked way too much about him."

Earlier in the video, Mendes told the interviewer that he's "pretty bad at lying" - although he admitted to lying in the past, including to his girlfriend, Camila Cabello.

Cabello is also friends with Swift and served as one of her opening acts for the "Reputation" tour. Cabello even performed "Shake It Off" alongside Swift and Halsey at the 2019 American Music Awards, where Swift was honored as artist of the decade.

Raquel Welch has vanished from social media. Could something be wrong or has she gone all Greta Garbo or Norma Desmond,

Raquel Welch seems to have disappeared from social media with no acknowledgement of her 80th birthday. Her Facebook account seems to have been deleted, no Instagram posts in over 2 years and no tweets in 18 months. Now of course she might just have got bored or fed up with all social media and chose to stop posting .

But I have a feeling , an intuition that something is wrong especially with nothing for her 80th birthday in September. Perhaps a serious health problem or vanity because she doesn't want to be seen in public when she can no longer maintain the standard of her look. I believe Lana Turner became reclusive in part for this reason. I am wondering if maybe she has become all Greta Garbo or Norma Desmond in her twilight years.? Any dataloungers heard any rumours or gossip about this or has speculation to share?

‘Star Wars’ Editor Marcia Lucas Slams Kathleen Kennedy and J.J. Abrams: ‘They Don’t Have a Clue’

Marcia Lucas is no fan of the Disney-produced “Star Wars” movies. While being interviewed for J.W. Rinzler’s just-published book on “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi” film producer Howard Kazanjian, Lucas slammed current Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and director J.J. Abrams for their storyline decisions. The choice to kill off Han Solo and Luke Skywalker particularly made Lucas upset.

Lucas won an Oscar for editing the original “Star Wars” along with Paul Hirsch and Richard Chew. She returned to co-edit “Return of the Jedi” and went uncredited on “The Empire Strikes Back.” Prior to “Star Wars,” Lucas made a name for herself editing Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver” and “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore,” and she was also Oscar nominated for “American Graffiti.” Marcia Lucas was married to George Lucas between 1969 and 1983.

“I Like Kathleen. I always liked her,” Marcia Lucas says in Rinzler’s book, “Howard Kazanjian: A Producer’s Life.” “She was full of beans. She was really smart and really bright. Really wonderful woman. And I liked her husband, Frank. I liked them a lot. Now that she’s running Lucasfilm and making movies, it seems to me that Kathy Kennedy and J.J. Abrams don’t have a clue about ‘Star Wars.’ They don’t get it. And JJ Abrams is writing these stories — when I saw that movie where they kill Han Solo, I was furious. I was furious when they killed Han Solo. Absolutely, positively there was no rhyme or reason to it. I thought, You don’t get the Jedi story. You don’t get the magic of ‘Star Wars.’ You’re getting rid of Han Solo?”

Rinzler, a former executive editor at Lucasfilm, interviewed Lucas in between the releases of “The Last Jedi” and “The Rise of Skywalker,” although his book on Kazanjian was just published September 14, 2021. (Rinzler passed away shortly before the book’s release.) Lucas also railed against the decision to kill Luke Skywalker in “The Last Jedi.”

“They have Luke disintegrate,” Lucas says. “They killed Han Solo. They killed Luke Skywalker. And they don’t have Princess Leia anymore. And they’re spitting out movies every year. And they think it’s important to appeal to a woman’s audience, so now their main character is this female, who’s supposed to have Jedi powers, but we don’t know how she got Jedi powers, or who she is. It sucks. The storylines are terrible. Just terrible. Awful. You can quote me…JJ Abrams, Kathy Kennedy — talk to me.'”

Datalounge - what in the FUCK is going on with EVERYTHING being out of stock or unavailable?

I don't mean to sound like a crass material-craving American, but for over a year now everything we need for our house is either "out of stock" or months in the making. The refrigerator ordered in December, made in the U.S., arrived just last Thursday. Home Depot, the king of shitty, poorly made crap shows nearly every item online as "unavailable for pick-up or delivery". Just this morning I was trying to order some cheap ass replacement cushions for my patio sofa and two chairs. Just normal crap you would want to pick up in the summertime. Nothing. It's all "out of stock" or "unavailable". Whole Foods, constantly out of this or that. Out local WF has really gone to shit. Nasty bathrooms, increasingly empty shelves. Recently tried to order some basic Hanes tees that I wear under my shirts for work. I ordered from two websites. Both came back a week later, refunded my order and told me they were "unavailable". Add this to the constant, every-where-you-go excuse of "Oh sorry, we're just so busy because of COVID", or, "we close early/don't have that/can't do that because of COVID" nonsense, and none of it really adds up. Is this all due to a global supply chain issue or has something greatly shifted that they aren't telling us? People started buying more during COVID, but it's been over a fucking year now and things aren't normal . :-(

Woman films water rising at Tennessee home before she dies in flood

A one-minute video recorded on Facebook Live is the last the world heard from Linda Almond before she was carried away by floodwaters that washed over Tennessee this weekend.

Linda Almond’s sister identified her body the following day, her brother Leo Almond said on Facebook.

At least 22 people are dead and more than a dozen are missing following historic flooding in Middle Tennessee, The Weather Channel reported. Photographs and videos of the aftermath show rushing water plucked homes from their foundations, swept up cars and destroyed buildings.

The flooding was spurred by excessive rainfall in the region early Saturday.

The Waverly Department of Public Safety urged anyone living in “flood prone areas” near Trace Creek to evacuate just after 8 a.m. Saturday. By noon, the county was operating with temporary emergency phone numbers while officials worked to get 911 communications reestablished.

Linda Almond went live just before 10:15 a.m.

“Well if anybody seen me on Facebook Live we’re being flooded right now in Waverly, Tennessee,” she said at the start of the video. “Really scary.”

Waverly is a town of roughly 4,100 people about 75 miles west of Nashville.

The video shows a glass pane speckled with rain droplets and debris floating by the window in murky brown water. The sound of moving water can also be heard in the background.

About halfway through the video, Almond is heard saying, “whoa, whoa.”

“I think something just hit the side of the house,” a second person in the video said in response.

The camera jostled a bit before Almond’s voice returned, seemingly shakier than before.

“This is scary,” she said.

In her last words before the video cut off, Almond can be heard saying, “Oh my goodness, oh my goodness.”

Family members told WKRN that Almond and her son climbed to the roof some time after the live video feed ended. But the roof collapsed, and both were caught up in the floodwaters.

Her brother Leo shared the live video on his Facebook page just after 3:30 p.m. on Saturday saying Almond’s son had been rescued but she was still missing.

By Sunday, he said Almond was gone.

“She died in the water yesterday,” Leo Almond wrote. “Please pray for her soul.”

Tennessee says vaccinated people should be last in line for antibody treatments to save them for the unvaccinated

Unvaccinated people in Tennessee now have priority access to one of the few COVID-19 drugs shown to reduce hospitalization and death: monoclonal antibody treatment.

The state's government recommended this week that most vaccinated residents should be last in line for the treatment, which comes in the form of infusions or injections, the Tennessean reported Monday.

The drugs are designed to mimic the body's natural immune response by targeting certain coronavirus proteins and preventing them from entering our cells. The Food and Drug Administration authorized the first monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19 in November.

But the drugs are in short supply in Tennessee and across the US as the Delta variant continues to spread in states with low vaccination rates. In Tennessee, where just 44% of the population is fully vaccinated, COVID-19 cases still hover above 5,000 per day.

As of September 13, the federal government has been determining how many monoclonal antibody treatments each state will get based on that state's COVID-19 case count and how much supply it uses up each week. The government announced last week that hospitals can no longer order monoclonal antibodies directly from a wholesale supplier, AmerisourceBergen, due to shortages.

So Tennessee is asking healthcare workers to prioritize the most vulnerable - namely, unvaccinated, partially vaccinated, elderly, and immunocompromised people.

"It's definitely an ethical dilemma," Rodney Rohde, chair of the Texas State University clinical laboratory science program, told Insider. "I pray and I hope that no healthcare professional would ever be put in that situation."

Rohde said Tennessee's recommendation could potentially spur other states to issue similar guidelines.

In a letter to Congress last week, seven Republican representatives from Tennessee called on the federal government to "do everything in its power" to increase the availability of monoclonal antibodies.

But disease experts stress that vaccines are the better approach. The shots lower the risk of hospitalization by 71% to 93%, depending on which one you receive, according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Recent studies also show that vaccines protect against severe disease for at least six months to a year.

Whereas vaccines instruct the body to produce a harmless viral protein, then develop antibodies against it, monoclonal antibodies help prevent people with mild or moderate symptoms from developing severe COVID-19 by stopping the virus from replicating. The drugs must be administered within 10 days (though ideally three to four) after symptoms start.

"Monoclonals are basically giving you direct antibodies that are only passively protective - in other words, they work right then on that infection at that time, but you are not protected long-term," Rohde said. "Vaccination is still critical in individuals because in theory, you would have to get monoclonals every time you had a bad experience with a viral infection."

The US has authorized three monoclonal antibody treatments for emergency use. In a study of non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients, 3% of those who got Eli Lilly's drug went to the hospital, compared to 10% of those who got a placebo. Regeneron's cocktail yielded similar results. That suggests monoclonal antibodies could reduce the risk of hospitalization by up to 70%.

"A lot of the arguments people use for not getting the vaccine technically would also apply to these monoclonal antibodies," Vivek Cherian, an internal-medicine physician in Chicago, told Insider. "It's a very, very new thing. It got developed very rapidly. It used modern science to get there. But people who aren't willing to get vaccinated are willing to get this treatment."

Since unvaccinated people are far more vulnerable to severe disease and death than unvaccinated people, it makes sense to give them first access to antibody drugs, Cherian said, even if the policy seems unfair to vaccinated people.

Please share your most heated in-person hookup/flirtation story. Mine was at my straight friend’s wedding.

Trump Campaign Knew Lawyers’ Voting Machine Claims Were Baseless, Memo Shows

Days before lawyers allied with Donald Trump gave a news conference promoting election conspiracy theories, his campaign had determined that many of those claims were false, court filings reveal.

Two weeks after the 2020 election, a team of lawyers closely allied with Donald J. Trump held a widely watched news conference at the Republican Party’s headquarters in Washington. At the event, they laid out a bizarre conspiracy theory claiming that a voting machine company had worked with an election software firm, the financier George Soros and Venezuela to steal the presidential contest from Mr. Trump.

But there was a problem for the Trump team, according to court documents released on Monday evening. By the time the news conference occurred on Nov. 19, Mr. Trump’s campaign had already prepared an internal memo on many of the outlandish claims about the company, Dominion Voting Systems, and the separate software company, Smartmatic. The memo had determined that those allegations were untrue.

A-List Gays

As a gay man who has never attended the white party, gone to Fire Island or done any of the things associated with what I hear is called the A List, for those who have, what are they like? Are they as tiresome as they sound or are they enjoyable? Do they even exist past the joke clichés I've read here?

I feel I have (or had, before Covid) a healthy social life, but never one that had to do with my being gay or on a list, whether A or any other letter of the alphabet. Of course I'm an irritable ice queen with the sexual charisma of slightly used seafood, so perhaps that's why.

Am I missing something that's fun?

Fellow DLers: who among you has bipolar disorder?

Tell me about your experiences, especially about your transitions from depressive to manic/hypomanic states, or vice versa.

Does your mood change within days or even hours, or do you have more of a transition period?

How old were you when you were diagnosed? How well do meds control your symptoms?

I'm 38 and have dealt with depression since I was about 12. I developed bipolar disorder during high school, but wasn't formally diagnosed until I was 21. I was in and out of psych wards in my early 20s. Now, I don't drink or use drugs (cocaine was my drug of choice), but I still have destructive mood swings. I suppose I use eating to regulate my moods and anxiety.

SNL's Bowen Yang

I can't ask this question on Twitter or Reddit without getting cancelled, so I'll ask it here. You fellas have no filter.

What's the deal with Bowen Yang? Why are the woke straights tripping over themselves to say what a genius he is, and what a style icon he is? He's the new Dan Levy. He's surely a nice enough person and has some talent, but they act like he's the next frickin' Robin Williams. I don't find him that funny, or that fashionable, or particularly attractive/stunning. SNL has gone a long time without a gay male cast member, and he fills that gap conveniently for them.

If Bowen Yang were a heterosexual, would anyone give a fuck about him? Is it really just white straights using him as their latest toy gay?

I was a small child when this show first came to television, so I didn't see it in its heyday. But I've tried to watch it since then, and I just don't get it. Do I need to be drunk or high for these plotlines and conversations to make sense? Is the show supposed to make me feel like I'm already high while watching it? I know they're top-notch actors, and the writing is said to be solid, but it just doesn't connect for me.

For those of you who witnessed its peak popularity back in 1990-91: Were you fans? Did people truly enjoy it, or was it something everyone only pretended to like so they could impress their friends by watching "arthouse" television?

Apparently, GenZ clean their tables after eating out, and Boomers don't.

Should you clean your own table at a restaurant? That question is sparking a generational debate on TikTok, thanks to one customer’s viral video.

The clip, posted by user @sallymander_, claims to show the difference between a “Gen Z table” and a “boomer table.”

“Younger generation vs. older generation,” the TikToker captioned her clip.

In the video, @sallymander_ first shows a booth where the “younger generation” allegedly ate. The table is mostly cleaned off, with the plates and silverware stacked at the end for the waitstaff. She followed up in the video’s comments to explain that this was the table where she and her friends ate.

Next, @sallymander_ shows the “older” table, where plates and cups are still left in their original places.

The video is reminiscent of another viral TikTok from 2020. In that clip, a waitress compared how two tables — one with younger customers and the other with older diners — left their tables after eating.

”'They get paid to do that’ vs. ‘We know restaurant life is hard, here, let us help you out,'” the waitress captioned her TikTok.

Just like that video, @sallymander_ sparked a wide-spanning conversation in the comments section. Some users were surprised the younger diners left a cleaner table.

“If the clean table isn’t the older generation, I don’t know anything anymore,” one user wrote. “I’m 38 and I always do this.”

Other users argued that age has nothing to do with it.

“Stop blaming the generations and blame the way someone was raised,” one user wrote.

“It’s a respect thing,” another agreed.

Some commenters questioned whether or not stacking the plates was even helpful.

“I’ve had waiters tell me not to do this,” one user claimed.

“As a server, I genuinely don’t care [if you do this],” another added.

Anyone have any clue what this is? I know it’s not really new, but not a lot of info on it

Vice President Kamala Harris' departure for Vietnam was delayed by several hours Tuesday afternoon after her office was informed by the US embassy in Hanoi, Vietnam, of a "report of a recent possible anomalous health incident."

That term is the way that the government usually refers to the mysterious Havana syndrome that has sickened hundreds of US officials over the past few years.

"Earlier this evening, the Vice President's traveling delegation was delayed from departing Singapore because the Vice President's office was made aware of a report of a recent possible anomalous health incident in Hanoi, Vietnam. After careful assessment, the decision was made to continue with the Vice President's trip," said Rachael Chen, spokeswoman for the US embassy in Hanoi, in a statement.

"NOS4A2" starring cutie-pie Zachary Quinto - Who saw it?

AMC produced two short seasons based on the horror novel by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King). The cast was anchored by Zachary Quinto as the baddie, and he wore a lot of prosthetics and costumes to portray his characters many changes in age and physical condition. And yes, in this scene, he's wearing prosthetic teeth.

I read the novel, and have the audiobook narrated by DL fave Kate Mulgrew, and I have to say the book was better. Quinto steals the show, but the girlie who plays the main character is also a solid performer. It's neat to see the main scenes from the novel turned into live-action sequences, but they simply changed too much of the story to make it fit better as a TV show. I hate it when they do that.

But one great thing they did with this series was keep it true to the book's structure and story. It ended where the novel ended, and unlike that stinker "Under the Dome," they didn't try to stretch the story out well past its natural ending point. They turned a long novel into two solid seasons, and called it a day.

Any of you seen it? Heard of it? Willing to watch it just for Quinto's eyebrows?

What Books Are You Reading In 2021? Part 1

Surprisingly (or not), in spite of the pandemic and associated lockdown of 2020, our reading log of last year did not fill 2 threads. Chalk it up to a US election year, lack of access to in-person libraries and bookstores and people preferring to stream rather than to read. Speaking for myself, in the opening post of 2020 I announced my plan to read Moby Dick - it remains unread as I stuck mostly to comfort reading mysteries and thrillers.

J LO - “I FEEL LIKE AN OUTSIDER IN HOLLYWOOD”

Jennifer Lopez shared something pretty shocking that at first blush seems ridiculous but when you think about it, you get it -- she says she feels like an outsider in Hollywood.

"I think for me, I know it is important for all of us to feel like we belong, um, and like most people there's so many times in your life when you feel like an outsider, I feel like that in Hollywood sometimes."

Now she could be unloading her feelings because she wasn't nominated for "Hustlers," which was a little surprising giving some serious Oscar buzz. Tyler Perry went off on the Oscars, saying she richly deserved a nom.

There are plenty of folks who are big stars who don't get embraced by center Hollywood ... and some of it's clearly jealousy and ego. In J Lo's case, she gets more publicity than just about anyone for things she does offset and people she dates, and that probably annoys other actors who don't get the shine she does.

I don't always enjoy it this much, but the show has developed an excellent formula which is equal parts drag, fashion, heart string tugging, elimination contest, and a positive "Love yourself" message. Even the "transman" Gottmik was a superb contestant.

Don't cry for him, Canada! Canadian College Football Player Francis Perron Dead At 25 After Team's Season Opener

In other Canadian news. Do we care, i.e., was he good looking?

Francis Perron -- a defensive lineman at the University of Ottawa -- passed away shortly after their season opener on Saturday, the school announced.

He was only 25 years old.

University of Ottawa president Jacques Fremont broke the sad news on Sunday ... saying the Canadian football player died after their first game of the season.

"Over the weekend, Francis Perron, one of our Mechanical Engineering students and a defensive lineman in his fifth season with Gee-Gees football, died shortly after a game between uOttawa and the University of Toronto."

"A bright, passionate, and caring person, Francis poured himself into his craft as a player and his academic pursuit of becoming an engineer."

"In the classroom, he was as big of a star as on the field, becoming a multiple-time U SPORTS Academic All-Canadian while studying Mechanical Engineering."

Perron joined the Gee-Gees in 2017 and played in Saturday's game. They lost 11 to 10.

The cause of death has not been revealed at this time.

Fremont says Perron's death will have a big impact on the Gee-Gees team and community ... and they plan to hold a memorial service in the coming weeks.

"On behalf of the University of Ottawa, I offer my condolences to his family, friends and loved ones. The thoughts of all members of our community are with you."

RIP

What careers had the quickest journey straight down the shitter?

Captain and Tennille -- Had a number one hit at the start of 1980; were dropped by their record label at the end of the year. Became a novelty nostalgia act alongside performers who had their heydays two decades prior to them almost instantly.

Sandra Dee -- consistently ranked as one of the biggest box office draws in the early to mid '60s then let go from her contract with Universal and became an unemployable anachronism who would be lucky to get a part on The Rockford Files. She was barely older than Stockard Channing when she was being mocked in Grease.

Janet Jackson -- went from being considered a peer of Madonna's at the start of millenium with a record breaking recording contract to being barely a footnote in music by the middle of the decade, at a time when Madonna, Mariah, and her old backup dancer JLo were still having hits. Even Whitney's disastrous final tour out-grossed her Rock Witchu tour by 300%, to say nothing of the Iowa incident. She nows seems to have all the cultural cache of Paula Abdul.

The Dupixent Commercial with the Fat Gay Dude Bugs the Shit out of Me

Okay, so it starts out with him running to give his kid the lunch box they forgot (handed off to him by his husband) before the school bus drives away. Then none of the rest of the commercial makes sense:

- Seconds later, he's playing soccer in the street with the neighborhood kids and there's a net. Why are these kids not going to school? How did the net get up there with a school bus going down the street? How did the school bus not plow over the kids and the net?

- Then he bounces over to a garage sale. Who the fuck holds a garage sale in the middle of the week? And who are all these unemployed people at the garage sale? And who sells an ancient snorkeling helmet? And all he does is randomly touch shit before he bounces off again. Why the fuck isn't he working? Why isn't his husband working? Why isn't he thinner with all the bouncing around the neighborhood he does?

God, I hate this commercial. God, this pandemic has me paying way too much attention to stupid shit like this.

Eric Trump reportedly “yelled at the campaign’s data analysts, as if it were their fault that his father’s early leads over Biden were shrinking,” wrote Leonnig and Rucker.

“We pay you to do this,” he reportedly screamed, adding: “How can this be happening?”

Phil Collins Suffering from Health Problems, can 'Barely Hold’ Drum Sticks

(CNN) Phil Collins says he is no longer able to play the drums due to health issues.

The musician, who is 70, appeared on BBC Breakfast with his Genesis band members to promote the group's reunion tour, and Collins said his son, Nic Collins, will be drumming with the band going forward.

As for not drumming, Collins said, "I'd love to but you know, I mean, I can barely hold a stick with this hand. So there are certain physical things that get in the way."

He admitted that he'd love to be up there playing with his son, saying, "I'm kind of physically challenged a bit which is very frustrating because I'd love to be playing up there with my son." Instead, he will will sing with the band.

When this upcoming tour, delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic, ends, Collins isn't sure if he'll be touring any longer.

"We're all men of our age, and I think to some extent, I think it probably is putting it to bed," he said. "I think yeah, I think just generally for me, I don't know if I want to go out on the road anymore."

Collins had had a series of fractures over the years and in 2015 underwent back surgery which left him with nerve damage. In 2017 he fell, which resulted in him using a cane to assist with walking.

New ‘Lost Boys’ movie starring Noah Jupe and Jaeden Martell is set at Warner Bros

Warner Bros. is planning to take another bite out of 1980s cult hit “The Lost Boys,” with a modern-day take starring Noah Jupe and Jaeden Martell.

Jupe starred in the “A Quiet Place” films and appeared in “The Undoing” and “Honey Boy,” while Martell was part of the “It” movies ensemble and starred in the “Defending Jacob” series as well as appearing in “Knives Out” and “Masters of Sex.”

Jonathan Entwistle will direct with Randy McKinnon, who is working on “Static Shock” for Warner and DC, writing the new version, the studio confirmed.

Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger are producing through Automatik. Zac Frognowski and Josh Glick are executive producers.

Joel Schumacher directed the original “Lost Boys” in 1988, starring Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Alex Winter, Dianne Wiest and Jami Gertz in the story of two boys who move to a California beach town with their mother and get involved with a gang of stylish bikers who happen to be vampires.

The popular soundtrack included bands such as Echo and the Bunnymen doing a cover version of the Doors’ “People Are Strange” and INXS’ “Good Times” with Jimmy Barnes, plus songs by Roger Daltrey and Foreigner’s Lou Gramm.

Entwistle, developed “The End of the F***ing World” and was the series’ main director and executive producer. He also directed the pilot for the upcoming “Willow” TV series at Disney Plus.

Jupe is repped by CAA, Grandview, The Artist Partnership and Hansen Jacobson, while Martell is repped by CAA, Emily Cho Talent Management and Jackoway Austen.

McKinnon and Entwistle are repped by CAA, Grandview and Jackoway Austen.

The pilot for a “Lost Boys” TV series at The CW had been in production when the pandemic shut down filming, but the network did not pick it up. Two straight-to-video sequels were also released.

$10,000 Abortion Bounty: Texas doctor violated abortion ban, is sued by private citizen from Arkansas

[quote][bold]Texas doctor who violated state’s abortion ban is sued, launching first test of constitutionality[/bold]

[quote]A lawsuit that could test the constitutionality of the nation’s most restrictive abortion ban was filed in Texas Monday against a doctor who admitted to performing an abortion considered illegal under the new law.

[quote]The details of the civil suit against Alan Braid, a physician in San Antonio, are as unusual as the law itself, which empowers private citizens to enforce the ban on abortion once cardiac activity has been detected — often as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

[quote]Braid stepped forward last week to say that he provided an abortion to a woman who was in the early stages of pregnancy, but beyond the state’s limit. Despite the risks, Braid said he acted because of his duty as a doctor and “because she has a fundamental right to receive this care.”

[quote]“I fully understood that there could be legal consequences — but I wanted to make sure that Texas didn’t get away with its bid to prevent this blatantly unconstitutional law from being tested,” he wrote in a column in The Washington Post.

[quote]On Monday, an Arkansas man said he decided to file a lawsuit to test the constitutionality of the Texas measure after reading a news report about Braid’s declaration. Oscar Stilley, a former lawyer convicted of tax fraud in 2010, said he is not personally opposed to abortion, but believes that the measure should be subject to judicial review.

[quote]“If the law is no good, why should we have to go through a long, drawn-out process to find out if it’s garbage?” Stilley said in an interview after filing the complaint in state court in Bexar County, Tex., which includes San Antonio.

[quote]He also noted that a successful lawsuit could result in an award in court of at least $10,000 for the plaintiff.

[quote]“If the state of Texas decided it’s going to give a $10,000 bounty, why shouldn’t I get that 10,000 bounty?” said Stilley, who is currently serving his 15-year federal sentence on home confinement.

[quote]That the first legal challenge to the Texas law came from a convicted felon in Arkansas was somewhat surprising. The antiabortion group Texas Right to Life has been gatheringanonymous tips about potential violations, but had not yet filed a lawsuit — in part because abortion providers and clinics said they were complying with the law. The group has also been temporarily barred by state court decisions from suing certain providers in parts of the state.

[quote]Braid, whose clinics are represented by the Center for Reproductive Rights, declined to comment through the legal organization.

[quote]“S.B. 8 says that ‘any person’ can sue over a violation, and we are starting to see that happen, including by out-of-state claimants,” Marc Hearron, the group’s senior counsel, said in a statement.

[quote]The Texas law took effect Sept. 1 and was designed to avoid judicial scrutiny by barring state officials, who would typically be the target of lawsuits, from enforcing the ban.

[quote]Instead, private citizens are charged with enforcing the ban by filing civil lawsuits against anyone who helps a woman get an abortion.

Supernatural FEUD: Emotional Jared BLINDSIDED by Spinoff News

He's crying again.

Is the Supernatural bromance in trouble? Or is Jared Padalecki simply and impressively (we hope!) commiting to a Twitter bit?

Hours after the new broke that Supernatural vet Jensen Ackles and his wife Danneel are developing a prequel spinoff for The CW that will follow young versions of Sam and Dean’s parents, John and Mary, Padalecki @’ed his former TV bro, claiming that while he was “excited” by the news, he wished he didn’t first hear about it via Twitter:

When a fan contended that Padalecki’s tweet “has GOTTA be a bad joke,” the actor QT’d, “No. It’s not. This is the first I’ve heard about it. I’m gutted.”

As of 11:30 pm ET, well over an hour later, those two tweets were still up, neither retracted nor recontextualized as jokes. We’re off to bed here on the East Coast, so I am sure you will all keep us posted!

Padalecki — who currently headlines The CW’s Walker — fired off a third tweet, which has since been deleted, at Robbie Thompson, the Supernatural co-executive producer who will pen the prospective series. “Et tu brute? Wow. What a truly awful thing you’ve done,” it read. “#Bravo you coward.”

In announcing the prequel project, Ackles said in a statement, “When Danneel and I formed Chaos Machine Productions, we knew the first story we wanted to tell was the story of John and Mary Winchester, or rather the Supernatural origin story. I always felt like my character, Dean, would have wanted to know more about his parents’ relationship and how it came to be. So I love the thought of having him take us on this journey.”

Supernatural creator Eric Kripke himself championed the news, tweeting, “When @JensenAckles first told me this story, I loved it. He & @DanneelHarris & @rthompson1138 are the perfect people to make it. (The other perfect person is too busy Texas Rangering.) Thanks for carrying the torch, guys, go kick it in the ass. Proud of you.”

'That's a dude': MMA star 'Suga' blasts transgender fighter

Mixed martial arts rising star "Suga" Sean O'Malley commented critically on transgender fighter Alana McLaughlin's victories over female fighters.

“I don’t think that’s OK,” O’Malley said of McLaughlin's victory during an episode of his podcast. “I just don’t think that’s OK ... In just competing in sports, I mean, especially mixed. It’s like she had testosterone for, who knows, 20 to 30 years of her life and now I’m a girl.”

“You could tell that’s a dude,” O’Malley added. “A jacked girl. I mean, look at those arms.”

McLaughlin, 38, was born male and began transitioning to a female in 2010 after leaving the U.S. Army Special Forces, Outsports.com reported. McLaughlin defeated Celine Provost, a biologically female fighter, earlier this month.

McLaughlin began training in MMA a year ago and was cleared to compete against women by the Florida State Boxing Commission after her hormone levels were approved.

McLaughlin wore a shirt after the fight that read “End Trans Genocide.”

Former UFC champion Michael Bisping also commented on McLaughlin's victory, saying he believes it isn't right for someone born with "the body of the man" to compete in fights against biological females.

“I’m not here to talk about transgender rights, you can identify as whatever you want,” Bisping said, Low Kick MMA reported. “But I do believe that if you’re a woman that feels trapped in a man’s body, there are certain advantages that you should have to give up. If you have the body of a man, competing against girls or women, when you’re using your body to beat someone unconscious, has to be one of those things you sacrifice.”

“If you want to play volleyball, soccer, be my guest. But in a sport that you beat someone into submission or unconsciousness, it shouldn’t be allowed. It’s unfair to women’s MMA.”

What is your concept of the process of making art?

I have painted and sketched all my life and I've written for most of my adult life.

I'm always motivated to do these things because of some kind of exciting stimulus. Sometimes I am very anxious or depressed and creative expression tends to exorcise the demons, so to speak, by giving me an expressive outlet and channeling energy into something productive. Sometimes I just need to explore an idea and doing it creatively gives a kind of structure and direction to it. And sometimes I want to just play with the medium I am using and see how well I can translate an idea in my mind into something physical. It's usually a thrilling process.

I've taken a few art classes through the Smithsonian, an institution that has collected some of the most renowned art in the world, and...wow. The classes have been instructed like occupational therapy, sort of in the vein of Bob Ross, with zen-like instructors speaking in meditative, hypnotic voices (which for some reason makes me feel like I'm in a cult) and being constantly reassuring that anything you do is ohhhhh-kaaay.

It's very weird to me, contrary to my idea of what most art is and why most people who make art do it. My MFA in creative writing program was high-pressur and full of neurotic, anxious people, and the instructors were partially supportive but also very much of the opinion that art is serious work that requires discipline, intellect, insight and inspiration, and that expression is urgent or else don't waste your time. My department chair even told us that we should avoid psychedelics if we want to be artists because psychedelics make people feel like everything is OK, and art is generated by feeling that nothing is OK. He said if we want to be happy people who live happy but unproductive lives, we should take psychdelics.

What is your general concept of art in this sense? And how do you think of artists creating their work? Do you think most are neurotic, or do you think they find it peaceful and relaxing with the idea that "everything is OK"?

I know health is a rare topic for the filthmongers on DL, but I've noticed a bit of opening up about anal health issues in recent months. Gay podcasts are talking about stretching, fissures, and bleaching, and more of my friends are discussing their pre-bottoming routines with each other. A lot of guys have had fissures, hemorrhoids, rashes from cheap dildos, STIs, and more. We certainly didn't learn about proper pooper health in school, so how is one to navigate these issues with dignity?

So why the delay on this issue? Is it because we're talking about assholes, and that causes embarrassment? Is it because we're men, and we stereotypically don't share our health woes? Or is it simply that DL is no place for talk about busted butts?

Cedric the Entertainer gives big boost to Emmy’s Ratings by

TV Ratings: #Emmys Awards Rise 16% From Last Year, Reversing a Pattern of Declines

The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS rebounded from last year’s all-time low ratings, reversing steady declines with a 16% gain of viewership to 7.4 million, compared to approximately 6.37 million viewers in 2020.

Per the accurate Nielsen Live+Same Day time-zone adjusted fast nationals for Sunday night, the ceremony averaged the total time spent across linear and digital platforms was over 1.4 billion minutes.

Even before the pandemic, the Emmys were struggling to stay on our collective radars, plummeting to a historic viewership drop-off in 2020 of approximately 12% compared to 2019’s host-less ceremony on Fox. The 7.4 million score for Sunday night’s show does not include “out of home” viewing and CBS estimates that it will likely increase upwards to 7.9 million when final numbers are released by Nielsen tomorrow.

Remember when Perez Hilton was mainstream?

And no one thought that his sharing leaked naked and sex pics was the least bit unacceptable?

He did the most reprehensible things in the most reprehensible ways and they were always picked up by TMZ and mainstream news and discussed as if there was something wrong with the people whose privacy he violated and not with him?

It just occurred to me that this could have been a precursor, too, to today's overly sensitive culture. We have gone from one extreme to another. Trump was the absolute worst but he wasn't a whole lot worse than Perez Hilton (tone wise—obviously I'm not comparing the damage Trump did) and while Perez was doing it, it seemed like everyone encouraged it.

Dustin Lance Black was barely known because he won an Oscar; otherwise, he was an obscure screenwriter and gay activist. This was such a violation of his private life. I can't believe he couldn't sue Perez into oblivion.

Military concerned about Explosion of sizzling ‘Thirst-trap’ posts on TikTok 💦

For those who aren’t aware, Urban Dictionary defines “thirst trap” as “a sexy photograph or flirty message posted on social media for the intent of causing others to publicly profess their attraction. This is done not to actually respond or satisfy any of this attraction, but to feed the posters ego or need for attention.” This phenomenon has made its way onto the TikTok video-sharing platform in the form of 15- to 60-second videos, and even more specifically into the platform’s military subculture. And while the women seem to take the most heat for sharing “provocative” content, there certainly is no shortage of male service thirst trapping.

A soldier using the name John Bland, who goes by the handle @notohkayjohn on TikTok, is perhaps one of the most infamous military TikTok users. His account primarily features him partially dressed in uniform, staring off seductively while music plays in the background. In some of the more risqué posts, however, he can be seen suggestively grabbing his crotch or tugging at his underwear.

Bland has 5.1 million followers to date, but he’s not the only one who uses TikTok this way. A purported Marine Reservist, Garrett Nolan, who posts as @garett__nolan, shares similarly seductive TikTok videos. He boasts a whopping 6.3 million followers. There are an unknown number of service members across the platform in uniform thirsting, dancing, working out and sharing their life stories despite the late 2019 ban of the Chinese-made app by the Pentagon, Army and Navy. However, as it turns out, the ruling on TikTok stands that individual service members are technically free to use to the platform in non-work capacities. The ban only extends to formal military entities connected to a chain of command or formal military group, Army Col. Joe Buccino, spokesman for XVIII Airborne Corps told Military Times. “With regard to conduct on TikTok, it’s the same as conduct on any other platform,” he said. “The governing document is under regulation 600-20, which is understandably vague on this matter. However, Buccino notes, “A good way of thinking about this is if you would not say it in front of formation, you should not say it on social media.” The Army’s social media handbook in particular embraces a three-pronged approach when it comes to individual soldiers posting on social media in general: Think, type and post. “The U.S. Army defines online conduct as the use of electronic communications in an official or personal capacity that is consistent with U.S. Army Values and standards of conduct. It is important that all Soldiers know that once they have logged on to a social media platform, they still represent the U.S. Army,” the guide says. “Online misconduct is a term that describes unacceptable or improper behavior through the use of technology.” But whether or not “thirst trap” posts in uniform mark of a violation of that policy is, as of yet, unclear.

Homeless Pennsylvania Man Faces 7 Years In Prison Over 43 Cent Soda Theft

PennLive reports Joseph Sobolewski, 38, went into a convenience store in Perry County in August to buy a bottle of soda. The advertised price of the Mountain Dew was two for $3. Sobolewski paid $2 for one bottle and walked out. The price for a single bottle, however, was $2.29 plus tax, meaning he was 43 cents short.

The publication added that the store called the police on Sobolewski, who was arrested and charged with a felony under the state’s “three strikes law” for retail theft. He had been convicted more than a decade ago for a theft and in 2011 for stealing a pair of shoes.

The law doesn’t take into account the value of the item in the third theft charge.

NBC News reported that the term has become less about faith, religion or the church and instead become a political distinction.

"People who embrace the label use it to signal that they're against immigration, science and abortion and to signal a belief that discussions of racism in America are antithetical to their idea of America," said NBC.

Stockbroker/financial planner/financial advisor question

I'm looking to get a stockbroker/financial planner. There are a few different firms I could go with (fees are all relatively the same):

1. He is a sole practitioner. He's 64 and has been around for a very long time. He clears through Charles Schwab. He offers good fees, but he brags a lot, doesn't always call me back, and has rescheduled two of our meetings.

2. This firm is headquartered in Dallas-Ft Worth, but they have a smaller branch in my city of 100,000. There are three brokers here- a very attractive middle aged woman, a smart 30-something male, and a really smart 20-something male who is learning. Plus their secretary. They pitched as a team and they are very classy.

3. A guy from Morgan Stanley. He used to work on Wall Street but moved to my city to be closer to family. He does well, but I'm not sure I want a big investment bank/broker. He is a typical salesman.

I'm going with Option 2, as they are more professional overall, but they have the highest fees.

Dog trainer Cesar Millan’s pit bull killed Queen Latifah’s dog, and he tried to cover it up

A young gymnast’s suit claims a dog owned by famed canine trainer Cesar Millan attacked one owned by the rapper-actress.

The details of a lawsuit from a young woman named Lidia Matiss allege that a dog owned by famed canine trainer Cesar Millan previously attacked another.

The lawsuit claims that Junior, Millan’s pit bull, attacked and killed a dog owned by Queen Latifah, and Millan lied to cover it up.

According to Matiss’ lawsuit, which was obtained by TMZ, Queen Latifah brought two of her dogs to be treated at Millan’s dog psychology center in Santa Clarita, California. Junior allegedly mauled her dog to death, but Millan reportedly told the rapper-actress her pet had been struck by a car.

Matiss claimed that in 2017, she went to her mother’s office in a building owned by Millan, for whom she worked. There, Matiss says, she encountered Junior, who she contends was walking its halls unsupervised and without a leash.

She says the dog attacked her, biting her legs, including her left calf, and she had to be treated at a local hospital for severe injuries.

Before her injury, Matiss had been a promising gymnast in the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympics. She said that before her injury, she had been scouted by the University of Pennsylvania for a potential scholarship, but the dog’s reported office attack ended her career.

Matiss claims her mother’s boss knew that Junior had a history of violence, yet the celebrity dog trainer allowed him to roam freely.

Millan responded in the lawsuit that Matiss assumed the risk of being bitten, maintaining that she was somehow also negligent.

According to a tweet, Queen Latifah shared that she had her first training session with Millan in January 2018.

Millan is best known for his Emmy Award-nominated television series, Dog Whisperer, which aired for nine seasons on National Geographic.

He is best known for his use of behavior modification techniques and the philosophy that exercise, discipline and affection are required “in that order” for dogs to be raised healthy and balanced.

Flashing or fucking the UPS Guy

After reading all the related threads this will soon be revealed as an urban myth or reality. A very hot friend just got a job as a UPS delivery man and has promised to report back. I will keep you updated...

Has anyone really had the UPS guy? Do you drop your towel or is a simple "Yumm" sufficient?
