Brad Pitt’s Hygiene ‘Reformed’ by Girlfriend Ines de Ramon: ‘Changed Smelly Ways’

Brad Pitt was teased for years about supposed poor hygiene including serious BO problems, but sources say he’s totally cleaned up his act thanks to Ines de Ramon who’s got him smelling like a rose.

“He’s really reformed for Ines,” a source exclusively told In Touch. “Brad used to be quite lackadaisical about taking showers and washing his hair, and only wanting to use soap and water when he did shower and refusing to use deodorant or cologne.”

Ines, 34, was Brad’s first serious girlfriend since his split from Angelina Jolie in 2016. Ines began dating the A-list actor, 60, in 2022, shortly after her 2019 marriage to Paul Wesley ended in separation.

Rumors ignited that Brad and Ines were a couple after she was seen with him on his 59th birthday in December 2022. However, their relationship wasn’t confirmed until early 2023 when Page Six obtained photos of the couple sunbathing together during a New Year’s trip to Cabo.

“He’d often go a day or two without bathing, which is astonishing given he’s such a huge sex symbol, but with Ines, it’s a different story,” the insider explains. “He's gone out of his way to change his smelly ways.”

The source says that the couple’s favorite thing to do together is yoga, followed by either a shower or a dip in the pool.

“Brad’s generally paying more attention to clothes he wears and letting her pick out his cologne. She’s even got him flossing his teeth,” the insider concludes. “Now, they love to go out and get pampered at the spa together, like massages and facials. He loves moisturizers and skin creams too; he’s upped his game in this area to everyone’s relief.”

Doomsday dinners: Costco sells 'apocalypse bucket' with food that lasts 25 years

The Readywise Emergency Food Bucket comes stuffed with 150 meal servings ranging from pasta Alfredo to apple cinnamon cereal for $79.99 online.

It's the end of the world as we know it and I feed fine — because Costco has an emergency dinner kit, dubbed online as "the apocalypse bucket," that lasts 25 years.

The Readywise Emergency Food Bucket boasts 150 freeze-dried and dehydrated meal servings and has caused a stir on social media. With an online price tag of $79.99, the bucket's product description boasts that it’s more than just food, it provides “readiness in the face of uncertainty."

The bucket features 80 entrees and sides, 30 breakfast servings and 40 drink servings that just need water to prepare, for a total of 25,280 calories. The meal options range from teriyaki rice, tomato basil soup, pasta Alfredo, cheesy macaroni and apple cinnamon cereal.

And, crucially for those preparing for an apocalypse, the bucket lasts up to 25 years on the shelf.

“It’s not just about survival; it’s about maintaining a sense of normalcy, comfort, and even enjoyment during challenging times,” the product description said.

The pail of preparedness went viral after Jeffrey Eisner, a cookbook author, shared a video about the bucket at his local Costco, saying, “They have buckets that they’re just calling emergency food supply … I guess this is for when the apocalypse hits, which could be any time now?”

[bold]Behind the Curtain: Top Dems now believe Biden will exit[/bold]

Several top Democrats privately tell us the rising pressure of party congressional leaders and close friends will persuade President Biden to decide to drop out of the presidential race, as soon as this weekend.

Why it matters: The 81-year-old president, now self-isolating with COVID, remains publicly dug in. But privately he's resigned to mounting pressure, bad polls, and untenable scrutiny making it impossible to continue his campaign, the Democrats tell us.

Behind the scenes: The private message, distilled to its bluntest form: The top leaders of his party, his friends and key donors believe he can't win, can't change public perceptions of his age and acuity, and can't deliver congressional majorities.

"DEI" criticism hurled at female Secret Service Agents after Trump shooting

The U.S. Secret Service said Wednesday that it stood by its female agents and was appalled by some of the criticism they’ve received on conservative social media since Saturday’s attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump.

The Secret Service, in a statement to NBC News, said that the criticism from pundits and influencers was baseless. The agency also stood by its commitment to diversity in recruiting as helping, not hurting, the effectiveness of its protective teams.

The statement follows a multiday campaign of derision by some conservatives who accused Kimberly Cheatle, the Secret Service director, of being unqualified and who said that female agents assigned to Trump hadn’t been physically capable of protecting him. Some critics said the Secret Service should return to being all-male, which it hasn’t been since 1970.

Anthony Guglielmi, the Secret Service’s chief of communication, said in the statement: “We stand united against any attempt to discredit our personnel and their invaluable contributions to our mission and are appalled by the disparaging and disgusting comments against any of our personnel.”

“As an elite law enforcement agency, all of our agents and officers are highly trained and fully capable of performing our missions,” he said.

“It is an insult to the women of our agency to imply that they are unqualified based on gender. Such baseless assertions undermine the professionalism, dedication and expertise of our workforce,” he added.

The failure of the Secret Service to stop the gunman before he was in a position to shoot has come under intense scrutiny, with lawmakers demanding answers and an independent review panel investigating the circumstances. Attendees have said they pointed out the would-be assassin to law enforcement and took video of him for at least two minutes before Trump was struck, according to an NBC News review of video clips.

There has been NO confirmation Trump was actually shot by anyone other than Trump

Convicted Felon, Twice impeached and 4 times indicted Former President Donald Trump claims his ear was pierced by a bullet has not been verified by anybody other than Trump himself. Trump is a well documented liar on virtually every subject, so it stands to reason additional confirmation would be warranted before assuming a bullet made contact with his ear.

No confirmation from Butler Memorial Hospital in Pennsylvania, no confirmation from the Secret Service, no confirmation from the Department of Justice, no confirmation from any branch of government, and no confirmation from the FBI, even though the FBI has gone to unusual lengths of confirming the investigation is of an assassination attempt and of domestic terrorism.

All the aforementioned institutions and agencies confirm they know there were eight shots, and they know and confirm WHO ELSE was shot, and they released their names, but nothing about Trump actually getting shot. Nothing from any news organization.

Days after the shooting, news organizations continue to dance around the lack of confirmation and assiduously avoid stating trump was shot as a fact, opting to present it as something trump claims. The NYTimes wrote "The former president was holding a rally when HE SAID he was shot in the ear" This pattern is followed by all the major media. There has been some unspecified "debunking" that trump was not hit by glass, as had been suspected. However, no further explanation or confirmation of what actually caused him to bleed or why he continues to wear a bandage over his ear.

The former president is an inveterate liar with a fondness for monetizing his contrived victim narrative. In the absence of reliable confirmation, it seems reasonable to assume his claim of being grazed by or hit by a bullet should be treated with scepticism.

cheated on my wife. I used people to make me feel better. I was callous and inconsiderate with people and their emotions and their well-being. I wanted what I wanted and I was going to take it at any cost, even if it was at an emotional cost of someone else. And that is shitty behavior. There are things in my behavior that I have to take accountability for, because that is pivotal for me learning and growing from it.

…If somebody looks at any behavior and goes ‘I don’t like that,’ that’s OK. By the way, all of my gay friends were like, ‘Honey, I saw your text messages. That’s it?!’ They go, ‘Oh my god, if people hacked into Grindr and put Grindr chats public, none of us would have jobs anymore.’

JD Vance Gay Bombshell

From an article about his book" "Vance came to Napa with his older half-sister, Lindsey, and was shown around the Bay Area by two of his cousins, Rachael and Nate, and their friends. While in the area, Vance says, he visited a winery and helped out at one of Nate’s football practices. He also spent time in San Francisco.

“During one trip, we went to the Castro District so that, in the words of my cousin Rachael, I could learn that gay people weren’t out to molest me,” he writes, just a few pages before he admits he thought he was gay at one point in his childhood."

19 year old British Twink missing in the Canary Islands!

The search for missing British teenager Jay Slater in Tenerife has been called off, police say.

Tenerife's Guardia Civil told the BBC: “The search operation is over. Yesterday was the final day of the search."

The 19-year-old from Lancashire has been missing since 17 June, after he told a friend he was lost in the mountains. A family friend, who is on the island, said they would carry on the search and were looking for people with rescue experience to help.

Police carried out a new search on Saturday with the help of dozens of emergency workers near the village of Masca, in the Rural de Teno national park.

Confirming that the search for Mr Slater was no longer "active", a Guardia Civil spokeswoman told Reuters that "the case is still open and there are several lines of investigation".

Since the teenager disappeared almost two weeks ago, the Spanish authorities have deployed helicopter crews, specially trained search dogs and drones.

Rachel Hargreaves, the mother of Mr Slater's best friend Brad Hargreaves is in Tenerife supporting his family.

She said the family would speak to the Spanish authorities on Monday to learn more about their investigation into the disappearance.

The apprentice bricklayer, from Oswaldtwistle, had been attending the NRG music festival on 16 June, and his friends said they were out in the tourist hotspot of Playa de las Americas when he was seen getting into a car with two British men he met earlier in the night.

The next morning, 17 June, he was tagged in a photo posted on Snapchat at 07:30 BST at an Airbnb in Masca, which was reportedly being rented by the two men.

Investigators have spoken to the pair and they are "not in any way relevant to the case".

Strictly Come Dancing 2024 (Series 22)

Strictly has just celebrated its 20th anniversary and the after much speculation it has been widely reported that Giovanni has SENSATIONALLY QUIT.

There's speculation about legal action from Amanda Abbington who felt bullied after pulling out and creating a DANCE DISASTER and Ranvir Singh and Laura Whitmore also had unhappy experiences on the show with Giovanni. There were also stories about his behaviour towards Faye Tozer and Michelle Visage.

There's a fine line between demanding excellence and just being an abusive twat and Giovanni has apparently crossed the line.

I wonder if Rose Ayling Ellis was different because she was always paired with a chaperone to translate?

Anyway if Giovanni does quit will the gurning ginger guy replace him or will they get a new pro in?

Celebrity wise it's Olympic year so expect a few Olympians. Tom Daley is a long standing target (just imagine Dustin's waxy face as he rubs crotches with Gorka) and the producers would be desperate for Laura Kenny although she's happy just being at home with her kids now. Maybe non lesbian lioness Steph Houghton who is retiring this summer?

Sara and Keren from Bananarama must have turned it down countless times as they'd not be up for all that work but Siobhan might be up for it. And Susan Ann Sulley from The Human League would do a great paso.

"Who Goes Nazi?" - Data Lounge Edition

[quote]It is an interesting and somewhat macabre parlor game to play at a large gathering of one's acquaintances: to speculate who in a showdown would go Nazi. By now, I think I know. I have gone through the experience many times—in Germany, in Austria, and in France. I have come to know the types: the born Nazis, the Nazis whom democracy itself has created, the certain-to-be fellow-travelers. And I also know those who never, under any conceivable circumstances, would become Nazis.

Learning about this article written just before World War II by prominent reporter Dorothy Thompson made me wonder who among the famous and gaymous discussed here would ally themselves with the fascists should they gain power in the coming years. The D-list MAGA brigade goes without saying, of course.

The Kardashians are a no-brainer. If recent news is any indicator, Jack Black is a good possibility. Who else would welcome our new overlords, and who would be a staunch supporter of the democratic resistance?

While in the area, Vance says, he visited a winery and helped out at one of Nate’s football practices. He also spent time in San Francisco.

“During one trip, we went to the Castro District so that, in the words of my cousin Rachael, I could learn that gay people weren’t out to molest me,” he writes, just a few pages before he admits he thought he was gay at one point in his childhood."

Also, Rachael Maddow notes that Peter Thiel (whom she does not mention is a self-hating, pro-Fascist gay zillionaire and founder of PayPal) has given Mr. Mascara every job he's ever had -- including buying him the Ohio Senate seat he's only held for 18 months. Do the math.

Nikki Haley's RNC Speech Thoughts

Haley was not going to attend the RNC, but the Trump campaign called her Sunday after the assassination attempt.

I think the campaign dangled State or Defense otherwise she wouldn't have spoken. Vance brings nothing to the ticket, the white Rust Belt was already voting for Trump. Youngkin would have been the better choice for a running mate; he appeals to moderates, women, and educated suburbia. I think it boils down to whether or not the campaign thinks they need Haley's voters to win. Trump only won around 50% of primary voters, which is not good for an incumbent.

On the other hand, with the selection of Vance, MAGA is here to stay on the long haul and they don't need her or her voters. She had to give in to have a future in politics. She's young, ambitious, and most likely will run for an elected office in South Carolina.

So this is who we're dealing with.

Another two-faced, hypocritical, backtracking liar as the Republican VP pick:

[quote] During the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Vance was an outspoken critic of Republican nominee Donald Trump. In a February 2016 USA Today column, he wrote that "Trump's actual policy proposals, such as they are, range from immoral to absurd." In the Atlantic and on the PBS show hosted by Charlie Rose, Vance called Trump "cultural heroin" and "an opioid of the masses." In October 2016, he called Trump "reprehensible" in a post on Twitter, and called himself a "never-Trump guy." In a private message on Facebook he called Trump "America's Hitler".

[quote] By February 2018, Vance began changing his opinion, saying Trump "is one of the few political leaders in America that recognizes the frustration that exists in large parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania, eastern Kentucky and so forth".

[quote] Vance supported Trump in 2020. In July 2021, he apologized for calling Trump "reprehensible" and deleted posts from 2016 from his Twitter account that were critical of him. Vance said that he now thought Trump was a good president and expressed regret about his criticism during the 2016 election. Vance visited Mar-a-Lago to meet with Trump and Peter Thiel ahead of an official announcement regarding his U.S. Senate campaign.

[quote] In October 2021, Vance reiterated Trump's false claims of election fraud, saying that Trump lost the 2020 presidential election because of widespread voter fraud. On April 15, 2022, Trump endorsed Vance for U.S. Senate.

Thousands of Philadelphia city workers are back in the office full time

Thousands of Philadelphia city employees are back in their offices full time after a judge rejected a union's request to block Mayor Cherelle Parker’s requirement that they return.

District Council 47 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees had sued the city, claiming the mandate violates its contract and would harm city workers. The union, which represents 6,000 administrative and supervisory employees, has also filed an unfair-practices complaint with the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board, which is still pending.

A two-day hearing held last week on the lawsuit concluded when the judge ruled Friday night that the city could impose the mandate, so the workers had to return to the office Monday.

Parker announced the mandate in May, saying she wanted to create a more visible and accessible government. The decision ended the city’s virtual work policy, put in place in 2021, and essentially returns employee scheduling to what it was before the coronavirus pandemic.

About 80% of the city’s 26,000 employees have been working fully on site since last year, while the rest had worked on site 31 to 75 hours per pay period, Parker said. Former Mayor Jim Kenney had left hybrid work decisions up to department heads.

With COVID summer wave underway, when should you get your next vaccine shot?

With the COVID pandemic now in its fifth year, millions of Americans have largely returned to their previous lives, with one exception: figuring out when to get their next COVID shot.

For a while, the answer seemed simple: once a year, in the fall, when an updated vaccine comes out that’s tailored to target the coronavirus strain that federal health officials believe will be circulating then.

The timing of the fall vaccine — which is now often delivered in conjunction with an annual flu shot — is meant to protect people through the winter season, when COVID usually reaches its peak for the year.

But with the United States now experiencing a typical summer COVID surge and the reformulated vaccine months away, some may not want to wait. The best moment to get another shot is different for everyone because people vary widely in when they got their last shot and when they last had COVID — both of which influence the timing of the next shot.

“This is a situation where one size does not fit all,” said Dr. John Swartzberg, a clinical professor emeritus of infectious diseases and vaccinology at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health.

Infectious disease experts generally agree that those at high risk for severe disease shouldn’t wait until the fall and can get a shot now as long as it has been at least four months since their most recent one or three months since they have had a coronavirus infection.

This applies to adults 65 and older, especially those who are vulnerable due to underlying medical conditions and those who live in nursing homes, as well as immunocompromised people of all ages.

It’s these high-risk people who make up the majority of COVID hospitalizations and deaths, even if they had been previously vaccinated, so this is the group that should be thinking about it the most, Swartzberg said.

Adults 65 and older accounted for 63% of COVID hospitalizations and 88% of in-hospital deaths in the first seven months of 2023, according to an October report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Yet federal data show that fewer than 36% of Americans 65 and older got last fall’s updated vaccine.

“If you are in a high-risk group for a bad outcome, I think you should avail yourself to a booster now if you haven’t had one,” Swartzberg said. “It’ll protect you in the summer and early fall.”

Then, in another four months, they could get the updated shot, which would give them additional protection right before the holidays, he said.

Healthy or low-risk people, though, have a little more leeway to make a personal decision about timing. For them, the vaccine generally provides longer-lasting protection against hospitalization and death than it does for older and vulnerable people. In fact, young healthy people remain pretty well-protected against severe COVID — the main objective of vaccination — even if they only got the original vaccine in 2021, said Nadia Roan, a UCSF professor and senior investigator at Gladstone Institute who studies immunology and virology. Healthy young people remain pretty well-protected against severe COVID — the main objective of vaccination — even if they only got the original vaccine in 2021. They can afford to wait until the fall for the latest update to the shot.

So if a healthy or low-risk person got their most recent shot last fall, it’s probably sufficient to wait until this fall to get their next shot if the goal is to prevent any infection at all.

They may want to get it sooner, though, if they’re going on a trip soon and know they’ll be in big crowds, Roan said. Antibody levels will spike within a week of vaccination and stay elevated for more than a month, lowering the likelihood of breakthrough infection, she said

Fandango Founder dies in fall from Midtown Manhattan hotel suite

J. Michael Cline, a founding investor and former chairman of online ticketing service Fandango, died Tuesday after falling from the window of a high-rise hotel in midtown Manhattan.

The New York Post had the news first. The NYPD confirmed to Deadline that a man of that name and age, 64, fell from the Kimberly Hotel at 145 East 50th. Reports said he died by suicide and left a note.

Cline was a managing partner at Accretive, which funds start-up companies, and the executive chairman of Juxtapose, which has a similar mission but specializes in building consumer-focused companies, according to social media and company websites.

Before he launched Accretive, Cline was a founding investor in Fandango in 2000 as a partner at General Atlantic. Early employees of the ticketing service whom Deadline spoke with today called him absolutely key in getting the new company off the ground. Notably, he negotiated deals with movie theaters chains including Regal and Cinemark, none of which used online listings yet, to join the site. He wanted Fandango to compete with the 800-pound gorilla at the time, Moviefone, the ubiquitous telephone call-in listings service founded in 1989.

A former colleague said Cline was “creative, and made sure the exhibitors had enough of an opportunity so it made sense for them.” He called Cline generous and philanthropic, donating significant sums to environmental causes like the World Wildlife Fund.

Ohio Weatherman Steve Raleigh Accused Of Beating Elderly Couple In Road Rage Fight

A minor fender bender in a restaurant parking lot turned explosive as the occupants from one vehicle beat an elderly man and woman unconscious in a road rage fight, landing both in the hospital. Since the incident in late June, family members claim there’s been no consequences, but now people in Cincinnati are hopping mad since video of the fight was shared online.

This is why you shouldn’t engage in road rage.

To be clear, WCPO Chief Metereologist Steve Raleigh hasn’t been charged for any crime and local news outlet City Beat reports he wasn’t present for the attack in The Boathouse parking lot. Some swear they can identify him in the video, but City Beat says his son, Carter Raleigh, was named as the other driver involved in the minor collision.

However, local attorney Eric Deters posted on X that Steve Raleigh is in fact shown in the video before stating, “Hope the family contacts me.” Steve Raleigh has since seemingly deleted all his social media accounts.

This all happened on June 22, leaving the daughter of the victims, Stacie Morrow-Stickrod, to take to Facebook back on July 10 to express frustration at the lack of criminal charges. She states in that post, “I feel like there has been so much time that has past with no arrest made and continuing to watch my mom struggle is hard to swallow.”

Her mother not only was knocked unconscious by her attackers, Morrow-Stickrod shared she suffered multiple cuts and bruises, a concussion, skull fracture, bleeding on the brain, a contusion on the back of her head that had to be stapled shut, plus a lens on her eye was detached.

Morrow-Stickrod also shared the only video she has of the incident, asking for others to share theirs since there “were lots of witnesses.”

As the New York Post reports, the minor crash was caused by Carther Raleigh failing to yield to traffic in the parking lot. He collided his grandfather’s Cadillac Escalade with the elderly couple’s Ford F-150. When the elderly man insisted on calling police, the other party didn’t like that. Morrow-Stickrod states her father “suspected they had been drinking” and that’s why the other people became violent.

We don’t care who you are or what your motivation is: beating an elderly man and woman over a fender bender or even a serious crash is just plain wrong.

14 year old Cavan Sullivan debuts in Major League Soccer match, breaking Freddy Adu's record

Cavan Sullivan, at 14 years and 293 days old, stepped onto a Major League Soccer field Wednesday night and, in the 85th minute of the Philadelphia Union’s match against New England, made all sorts of history.

He became the youngest player to ever appear in an MLS game, breaking a record famously held by Freddy Adu (14 years, 306 days) for more than two decades.

Sullivan is also the youngest kid to ever appear in any major U.S. team sports league.

And he is younger than everyone who has ever played in the Big Five European soccer leagues — England’s Premier League, Spain’s La Liga, Germany’s Bundesliga, Italy’s Serie A and France’s Ligue 1.

He is a precocious talent, an audacious attacking midfielder, an internationally coveted prospect who has already agreed to join Manchester City when he legally can, at age 18. He attracted hype even as a pre-teen.

The hype, naturally, has raised uncomfortable questions — about our cultural obsession with prodigies; about the utility of pushing a kid to the pros at age 14; and so on — especially in the context of the man whose record Sullivan broke. Adu, of course, fell short of the monstrous expectations heaped upon his innocent shoulders.

Perhaps the most relevant question, though, pertains to the league Sullivan is stepping into.

MLS was ill-prepared to accommodate Freddy; is it ready to welcome Cavan, and usher him along toward superstardom?

Many in and around the league believe the answer is yes, because its infrastructure and resources have grown tremendously.

“It's exponentially different from what it was 20 years ago,” Alecko Eskandarian, MLS’ vice president of player relations and player development, told Yahoo Sports.

"An investigation by BCSO determined three adults recreating on tubes and a paddle board (two tubes were secured together and the paddle board was attached to Naomi), became entangled on an exposed snag in the water," the agency said in a new release. "One of the adults, Naomi, was pulled under the water and unable to free herself due to the paddleboard leash."

Officials were able to locate two other adults, including her husband, Kyle Linden Webster, and their friends, but not Pomeroy. They continue to search for her, the "first drowning victim of the year."

Deputies used "all available tools, including sonar, underwater cameras, and drones, but were unable to locate any signs of Naomi in the area due to heavy debris in the water."

They reminded the public not to tie themselves to a paddle board or tie inner tubes together.

Vanished Michigan teen found safe, six weeks later in Miami

For about six weeks, Weston Coleman was constantly out on the road looking for his 17-year-old son, Troy, who vanished on May 17 after saying he was going to the store.

And then in early July, the boy turned up in Miami after being spotted, by happenstance, in someone’s outdoor live video stream.

“I'm just glad he's alive at this point and now can't believe we found him,” Coleman, 45, of Flint, Michigan, tells PEOPLE.

His son shares that feeling, Coleman says: “He's glad he is alive. We all feel a lot better, and we thank everybody.”

Father and son returned from Miami late last week, Coleman says.

According to his dad, Troy had spent much of his time out on the street — his skin being scorched by the Florida sun; with the exposure so intense that he’s missing some skin on his ears, nose and shoulders and some of his typically brown hair turned white.

Before his disappearance in May, Troy was sleeping at his grandfather’s house, which is next door to his father’s place. (Coleman says he is Troy’s primary parent.) Troy told his grandfather on the morning of May 17 that he was going to the store. Meanwhile, Troy’s grandfather went fishing with his friends while his dad had a dentist’s appointment.

But Troy never returned.

“I came back two hours later and he wasn't here, and I've been keeping a tight eye on him, so I was like, where'd he go?” Coleman says. “My dad said, ‘Oh, he went to the store.’ He didn't think anything was wrong. Then I immediately knew that something was wrong because I couldn't find him in the neighborhood. So I called the police, the police came over here, made a report, and he didn't come home that night.”

As Coleman learned, based on surveillance footage, Troy first got on one public bus and then rode on another one that took him to a local mall where he hung out all day.

Then on the early morning of May 18, says Coleman, Troy boarded a Greyhound bus bound for Atlanta; his name was never entered into the system when he paid his fare, which is why his family lost track of his whereabouts.

Upon going through Troy’s computer at home, Coleman discovered searches that his son made about Key West, Florida. So he and a friend drove to Key West to look for Troy.

With assistance from local police there, Coleman spent seven days in that city but came up with nothing and returned home to Flint.

He says he looked for Troy every day following the teen’s disappearance, logging numerous days and hours by car. He and his other sons, Trenton and Thomas, and friends also spread the word about Troy while looking for the missing boy in the Flint and Detroit areas.

“I didn't quit looking for him the whole time,” Coleman says. “I know what he went through, and he went through a lot. I mean, a lot of nights, a lot of days.”

Transcript of Biden call with Congressional Democrats

“First of all, I think you’re dead wrong on national security,” the president says, the emotion at times garbling his words. “You saw what happened recently in terms of the meeting we had with NATO. I put NATO together. Name me a foreign leader who thinks I’m not the most effective leader in the world on foreign policy. Tell me! Tell me who the hell that is! Tell me who put NATO back together! Tell me who enlarged NATO, tell me who did the Pacific basin! Tell me who did something that you’ve never done with your Bronze Star like my son—and I’m proud of your leadership, but guess what, what’s happening, we’ve got Korea and Japan working together, I put Aukus together, anyway! … Things are in chaos, and I’m bringing some order to it. And again, find me a world leader who’s an ally of ours who doesn’t think I’m the most respected person they’ve ever—”

“It’s not breaking through, Mr. President,” said Crow, “to our voters.”

“You oughta talk about it!” Biden shot back, listing his accomplishments yet again. “On national security, nobody has been a better president than I’ve been. Name me one. Name me one! So I don’t want to hear that crap!”

Bisexuals: not just when the 'R' is in the month

‘Bisexuals make up 52% of the LGBTQ+ community – yet we are overlooked’

"I’d like to see legislation brought in that would require queer organisations to report how their money is spent on each of the LGBTQ+ subcategories," says Lewis Oakley in an op-ed

A s a bisexual advocate, I’ve grown accustomed to our community often taking a back seat.

It’s baffling, considering we make up a solid 52 per cent of the LGBTQ+ community, and those numbers are only climbing. Yet we are overlooked.

Bisexuals often receive minimal attention from LGBTQ+ organisations and charities, and I’d like to know where their money goes. I’d like to see legislation brought in that would require queer organisations to report how their money is spent on each of the LGBTQ+ subcategories.

For context, something similar is done in the US, where organisation Funders for LGBTQ Issues has found that over the past 60 years, only around 1 per cent of funding has been spent on bisexuality. In 2022, the group found that more cash flowed to LGBTQ+ allies than to us bi folks. If we can see who’s putting their money where their mouth is, we can make smarter choices about who to support.

“Bisexuals aren’t asking for the world, but with just a few strategic changes, we can raise ourselves” Health is another biggie, with research showing that bisexuals face striking rates of poor health outcomes, ranging from cancer and obesity to sexually transmitted infections to mental health problems.

In 2017, the London Assembly Health Committee also found that bisexual people, and those who come under the + category, report that their identity is frequently misunderstood or simply erased by health professionals. To improve outcomes, I want to see a future government commit to research and education to equip healthcare providers with knowledge of bisexual-specific health risks.

Finally, let’s talk funding. We’ve been scraping by for way too long. Imagine if there was a pot of government money for bisexual-focused projects. It would be a game-changer, empowering our community to tackle issues head-on.

Bisexuals aren’t asking for the world, but with just a few strategic changes, we can raise ourselves out of the adversity we face.

Drive-in or Late Show type films of the '60s

I have a special place in my heart for these movies. I can't or don't usually watch them, now, but there was a time when most of us who were kids sat glued to our seats at the drive-in or in front of the black & White TV set as Olivia de Havilland (Lady in a Cage), Joan Fontaine (The Devil's Own), Barbara Stanwyck (The Night Walker) and other Big Stars of a recent era suffered through untold abuses and horrors. Whatever Happened to Baby Jane was a classic of artistic cinema compared to some of these schlocky (but still fairly decent-quality) motion pictures.

First Look: Rosemary’s Baby Prequel Apartment 7A

Julia Garner and Dianne Wiest star in this follow-up to the 1968 thriller, centering a side character’s nightmarish untold story.

t’s a damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation: How do you make a follow-up to Rosemary’s Baby in a way that expands on the 1968 classic without undermining its unsettling finale? Ira Levin, the late novelist who penned the original tale, failed this test himself when he released his own widely scorned sequel novel in 1997, Son of Rosemary. (It turns out to all be a terrible dream—which is almost more dispiriting than the rise of the Antichrist.)

The future for this malevolent child was left unknown at the end of the first novel and film, when the manipulated young mother (played in Roman Polanski’s movie by Mia Farrow) beheld her infant for the first time and managed to smile warmly, despite having been tricked into giving birth to evil incarnate. Producers who held the rights to the follow-up spent years grappling with what the next chapter should be. In Apartment 7A, filmmaker Natalie Erika James avoids meddling with Rosemary and her baby by shifting focus to a side character whose brief arc was no less haunting, tragic, and mysterious.

…and Nicholas Galitzine is straight now

I’m not terribly surprised. He had done that stupid Purple Hearts movie and he started getting tons of followers, and he kept posting updates of how his followers were going up. He thinks very highly of himself. Here’s the thing, and wish someone had told him this before he did this:

(Channeling inner Shirley Maclaine)

He is not special enough to be a straight actor. He is not a Star. He does not have the talent or charisma to make this worthwhile. He shows up to the Met Gala wearing a black tux. He is self serious and interviews poorly. His body veers toward doughiess, his features are pronouncedly feminine.

He is the Diversity Hire. That was his ticket into Hollywood. He could not do this, after doing so many queer roles, which he was only getting because it was more or less assumed he would eventually come out publicly. He is not anybody you would cast in any straight role unless the actor needs to register nonthreatening softness. He could not play Jonathan Bailey’s role in Bridgerton.

Jonathan Bailey is going up and up and up. Not because he is a gay actor. But because he is a Star. Andrew Scott is going up because he is exceptionally talented. Nicholas Galitzine is neither of those. He started rising at a very curious time in Hollywood in which the burden on gay actors of gay actordom is beginning to go away, but at the same time actors are expected to be gay if they take a lot of gay roles. It would have behooved him to cling to this like driftwood, because now, when it comes down to it, if I am in casting and I have to choose between him and a straight actor for a straight role, I am going to choose the one that does not pout his lips like Queen Nefertiti.

After Gus Kenworthy came out, his ex cruelly taunted him (bad breakup) and wrote online:

“…you were not fooling anyone. Any man who knows the entire soundtrack to the Broadway musical “wicked” is not bringing in the ladies, unless it’s for a themed dinner party.”

Nicholas Galitzine was already typecast as “man who knows the song score to Wicked.” This was highly self-defeating, unnecessary, makes the people who cast him in queer roles look like idiots, and establishes him as a professional nincompoop. He will never get the straight roles that he really wants, and now the gay roles will be offered to someone else. He should have just said nothing.

God I hate actors.

IndieWire names “Jackie” (2016) as Natalie Portman’s best performance

“It’s so easy to imagine a film about Jackie Kennedy that’s boring: A recount of her and JFK’s love story, their time in the White House, her recovery after his assassination, and an uplifting ending of her moving on. Pablo Larraín’s ‘Jackie’ is divisive, but let’s be thankful; nobody could accuse his intimate, zoomed-in character study, focused almost squarely on the moments after the president’s death, of being boring. And a large part of why is Portman’s extraordinary performance, which is less an act of mimicry than an impressionistic portrait of a woman similar but distinct from the recognizable figure.

Sure, Portman has the mannerisms and Jackie O’s distinctive accent down pat, and yet it’s always clearly, plainly Natalie Portman playing Jackie Kennedy. In a more traditional biopic, this distance between the real figure and the performance could be ruinous; in Larraín’s conception, which takes place in a vaccum of grief distinct from the outside world, it’s thrilling. The difference between the image that Jackie tries to convey in the aftermath of her tragedy and the real, messy emotions she actually feels is stark, and Portman is astonishing at conveying the divide and how the grief and tragedy courses through her body and lingers even in the scenes that take place decades later. Performance and artifice has been a consistent theme of Portman’s career, and she’s never rendered it more thrillingly than she has playing a wounded icon. ”

Massive Iceberg Makes A Stop Off Newfoundland Coast

Residents of the Canadian town of Ferryland, a small fishing village in Newfoundland, recently welcomed a new visitor: a huge iceberg that ran aground just offshore.

Watching icebergs is a Newfoundland tradition, and Ferryland bed-and-breakfast owner Maxine Dunne can see this iceberg outside her window. She tells NPR's David Greene that she and her husband, Charlie, have seen some pretty large icebergs over the years because they live along what is known as "iceberg alley," for the frequency with which icebergs float by after breaking off of glaciers on Greenland or in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

"But this is I would say certainly the highest iceberg that we've ever seen," she says. It's considered a "large" iceberg, which range between 150 feet and 246 feet above water, according to Scott Weese, a senior ice forecaster with the Meteorological Service of Canada.

Do you think the Trump shooting was staged?

I have some issues with believing it to be genuine: - Trump ducked BEFORE there was a shot - Secret Service didn't fully cover him (though it would be pretty tough to) - It would have hit more than one person had it actually grazed his ear

We all know he's a stunt queen, and we all know he's disgusting and morally bankrupt enough to stage something like this. So I'm not convinced on the "lone gunman" answer.

Jeffrey Katzenberg Tells Joe Biden That Donor Cash Is Drying Up As Concerns About POTUS’ Age Grow

Joe Biden heard some very hard words today from Jeffrey Katzenberg about his reelection chances.

The longtime Democratic donor and fundraiser spoke with Biden today in Las Vegas before the announcement that Biden had Covid again, we can confirm. In a larger meeting about finances, Katzenberg laid out to the 81-year-old President how donors are drying up due to ongoing concerns about his age. The campaign co-chair supposedly told Biden that the road ahead to another term could be very difficult, sources tell us.

How to Handle the Office Floozy

No, it's not me.

My office has this nice enough young woman (she is especially nice and forward with men), who remains rather annoying in her dress and habits. She wears tight leggings, clompy four-inch heels (more like boots, really), and billowy silk blouses that showcase her torpedo tits. Seriously, she wears those 1940s vintage bras that yank her boobs practically up to her chin and straight out. She'll put an eye out with those things!

Anyway, as mentioned, she's uncomfortably forward and a little handsy with men around the office. She's not the receptionist, but she'll jump up from her seat to "escort" a male visitor around the building. She gives a lot of hugs and shoulder touches. She also spends a lot of time out in her car, vaping and FaceTime-ing with friends or her kids' daddies. She smells like a heavy smoker. She has at least three teenagers, but I'm really not sure. But the WORST thing about her is her floozy laugh. It's part donkey bray, and part coquettish little giggle. Really, it's just loud. You can hear her across the building, and you know it's because some man came by and told a lame joke.

So how do I cope? Should I get her fired? "Accidentally" poke her fake boobies and deflate them? Tell my coworkers' wives about her hugs and giggles around their husbands?

Ryan Seacrest ‘Spinning With Excitement’ After Officially Taking Over ‘Wheel of Fortune’

The game show's new host has completed his first day on the job following Pat Sajak's retirement

FIRST-DAY JITTERS NEARLY kept Ryan Seacrest up the night before he officially took over Wheel of Fortune. As the new host of the long-running game series, he’s picking up where veteran host Pat Sajak left off when he retired earlier this year after 41 seasons. Seacrest went behind the scenes of his latest gig on Instagram, offering insight into how it feels to fill such big shoes. “I’m still spinning with excitement,” he wrote in the caption of the post, which opens with some wheel-spinning ASMR. “I could not sleep last night, I was so excited,” he says in the clip. “I slept okay, but still very excited for the alarm to go off.”

Seacrest is settling into a whole new routine as he explores the studio for the first time. “The wheel’s maybe smaller than you think,” he observes. “As am I.” Browsing through the show’s memorabilia collection — featuring a number of Emmy Awards, one of Vanna White’s famous dresses, and some Wheel of Fortune-branded merchandise — the new host stood next to a cardboard cutout of Sajak and compared their heights, joking: “Who’s taller? He is — shocker.” At the end of the clip, Seacrest skips away from the lot, still running on the high of his excitement for the new job. When Sajak exited the series, he told his successor: “You’re never going to find a better job, and you’re never going to find a better co-host.” White’s contract has been extended through the 2025-2026 season, so far. “I don’t know how to put into words what these past 40 years have meant to me but I’m going to try,” White shared in a video bidding farewell to Sajak. “8000 episodes went by like that. When I first started, I was so green. You made me so comfortable and so confident, Pat. You made me who I am, you really did.”

When it was first announced that Seacrest would be joining the show, he shared a lengthy statement of his own acknowledging the work put in before his arrival. “I’m truly humbled to be stepping into the footsteps of the legendary Pat Sajak,” he said. “I can say, along with the rest of America, that it’s been a privilege and pure joy to watch Pat and Vanna on our television screens for an unprecedented 40 years, making us smile every night and feel right at home with them.” Seacrest added: “Pat, I love the way you’ve always celebrated the contestants and made viewers at home feel at ease. I look forward to learning everything I can from you during this transition.”

Another Black Man falsely accused and removed from a domestic flight

Pro Football Hall of Famer Terrell Davis said he is "still in shock over the traumatizing events" on board a flight to California where he said he was placed in handcuffs.

The two-time Super Bowl champion said in an Instagram post that during a United Airlines flight with his wife and three children from Denver to Orange County on Saturday, his son asked for a cup of ice during the beverage service. The flight attendant didn't respond to the request, so Davis said he "calmly reached behind me and lightly tapped his arm." The flight attendant allegedly shouted "don't hit me" and left the beverage cart to go to the front of the plane. Davis said he and other passengers were confused.

"I thought nothing of it other than this particular employee was incredibly rude and blatantly wrong in his accusations of me hitting him," he said. "I did not see or interact with him further for the duration of the flight."

The former NFL MVP said when the flight landed, the pilot asked all passengers to remain seated. Then six FBI and law enforcement agents boarded the plane and placed him in handcuffs.

"I was then removed from the flight while being recorded by multiple passengers as I was paraded off of the plane in handcuffs by the officers," Davis said. "I was − and remain − humiliated, embarrassed, powerless and angry."

Davis said he was taken by authorities for questioning, and alleged afterward "it was rightfully determined by the agents this flight attendant was inaccurate in his accusations and the agents profusely apologized even offering to support me and my family in any way possible."

Davis added he hasn't heard anything from United Airlines but he refuses to be silent about "this disgusting display of injustice and deplorable treatment by United Airlines."

Former Government Official Arrested for Acting as Unregistered Agent of South Korean Government

According to court documents, after leaving U.S. government service and for more than a decade, Terry worked as an agent of the government of the Republic of Korea (ROK), commonly known as South Korea, without registering as a foreign agent with the Attorney General, as required by law.

As covertly directed by ROK government officials, Terry publicly advocated ROK policy positions, disclosed non-public U.S. government information to ROK intelligence officers and enabled ROK officials to gain access to U.S. government officials.

In exchange for these actions, ROK intelligence officers provided Terry with luxury goods, expensive dinners and more than $37,000 in funding for a public policy program focusing on Korean affairs that Terry controlled.

President Joe Biden tests positive for COVID-19 while campaigning in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID-19 while traveling Wednesday in Las Vegas and is experiencing “mild symptoms” including “general malaise” from the infection, the White House said.

Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden will fly to his home in Delaware, where he will “self-isolate and will continue to carry out all of his duties fully during that time." The news had first been shared by Unidos US President and CEO Janet Murguía, who told guests at the group's convention in Las Vegas that president had sent his regrets and could not appear because he tested positive for the virus.

Dr. Kevin O'Connor, the president's physician, said in a note that Biden, 81, “presented this afternoon with upper respiratory symptoms, to include rhinorhea (runny nose) and non-productive cough, with general malaise.” After the positive COVID-19 test, Biden was prescribed the antiviral drug Paxlovid and has taken his first dose, O'Connor said.

Biden was slated to speak at the Unidos event in Las Vegas Wednesday afternoon as part of an effort to rally Hispanic voters ahead of the November election. Instead, he departed for the airport to fly to Delaware, where he had already been planning to spend a long weekend at his home in Rehoboth Beach.

The president's diagnosis comes amid intense scrutiny of his health and stamina after a disastrous debate with former President Donald Trump that sparked a flurry of concern among Democrats that Biden is not up to the rigors of winning another presidential term.

Biden gingerly boarded Air Force One and told reporters traveling with him, “I feel good.” The president was not wearing a mask as he walked onto Air Force One.

The president had previously been at the Original Lindo Michoacan restaurant in Las Vegas, where he was greeting diners and sat for an interview with Univision.

Former F1 Driver Ralf Schumacher Comes Out as Gay

Former Formula One driver Ralf Schumacher came out as gay in a touching post on social media.

Schumacher, 49 — a grand prix winner who comes from a family of F1 drivers, including older brother Michael Schumacher and stepbrother Sebastian Stahl — shared that he was in a relationship on Instagram on Sunday, July 14.

The driver's post included a photo of himself and another man, Etienne, with their arms around one another as they watched the sunset over the ocean. "The most beautiful thing in life is when you have the right partner by your side with whom you can share everything," Schumacher wrote in the caption, which was translated from German into English.

Schumacher's post was met with an outpour of support from friends and family, including his son, racer David Schumacher, 22. "I am very happy that you have finally found someone with whom you really feel that you feel very comfortable and secure, no matter if you are a man or a woman, I am 100% behind you dad and wish you all the best and congratulations," he wrote in the comments of his father's post.

According to CNN, Schumacher was previously married to David's mother, Cora Brinkmann.

Schumacher is just the second known male Formula One driver to come out as gay. The first was Briton Mike Beuttler, who raced between 1971 and 1973. Beuttler died in 1988, per CNN.

Schumacher raced for 11 years and won multiple grands prix before retiring from motorsports in 2012.

UK first European country to approve lab-grown meat, starting with pet food

Regulators approve Meatly pet product, cultivated chicken made from growing cells

Lab-grown pet food is to hit UK shelves as Britain becomes the first country in Europe to approve cultivated meat.

The Animal and Plant Health Agency and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs have approved the product from the company Meatly.

It is thought there will be demand for cultivated pet food, as animal lovers face a dilemma about feeding their pets meat from slaughtered livestock.

Research suggests the pet food industry has a climate impact similar to that of the Philippines, the 13th most populous country in the world. A study by the University of Winchester found that 50% of surveyed pet owners would feed their pets cultivated meat, while 32% would eat it themselves.

The Meatly product is cultivated chicken. It is made by taking a small sample from a chicken egg, cultivating it with vitamins and amino acids in a lab, then growing cells in a container similar to those in which beer is fermented. The result is a paté-like paste.

Meatly’s production facility has been approved by the government to handle its cultivated chicken, and it plans to launch the first samples of its commercially available pet food this year. The company says it will then focus on cost reduction and starting to scale production to reach industrial volumes within the next three years. The cost reductions could be done by mixing the meat with vegetables, as is done with other pet foods containing costly animal products.

It has raised £3.5m from investors so far and expects to raise £5m in its next fundraising round.

Lewd tourist antics on Florence statue lead to outrage

There has been outrage in Italy after a female tourist in Florence was pictured miming a lewd act on a statue of the Roman god Bacchus.

In the photos - which were shared online by the social media account Welcome To Florence - the woman can also be seen kissing the life-size statue at nighttime.

The Bacchus stands on a plinth on a street corner near the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge and is a modern replica of the 16th Century work by sculptor Giambologna. The original is kept in the nearby Bargello museum.

The photos sparked angry reactions from social media users, some of whom called for the woman's arrest.

"This is the result of years of attempts at turning Florence into Disneyland," said another.

Patrizia Asproni, the president of Confcultura, an association that promotes Italy's cultural heritage, told Italian media that these "repeated shows of rudeness and barbarity" take place "because everyone feels entitled to do whatever they want with impunity".

Ms Asproni called for the application of the "Singapore model" with "tight checks, sky-high fines and zero tolerance" for bad behaviour.

Antonella Rinaldi, Florence's archaeology and fine arts superintendent, said: "Tourists are welcome here but they need to respect our artworks, be they originals or replicas."

"Although I doubt this lady - whom I condemn - even knows the difference," she added.

Florence is one of the world's foremost tourist destinations.

In 2023, around 1.5 million people visited the city - which has a population of just 382,000 - between June and September.

Local residents have long struggled with the huge influx of tourists, which in the summer months turns Florence's narrow streets into steady streams of people.

The so-called "overtourism" phenomenon has prompted several cities around the world to make changes to the way they welcome tourists.

Last month, the mayor of Barcelona pledged to eliminate short-term tourist lets in the city within five years, while several hotspots - like Venice or Japan's Mount Fuji - have started to introduce daily charges to try to limit numbers.

Unmasking bots

Toby Muresianu works as a digital communications manager in Los Angeles, but on a recent morning he took on the job of internet sleuth.

Muresianu, 40, was posting about politics on the social media site X when he became suspicious of an account that replied to one of his posts criticizing former President Donald Trump. The account claimed to be a fellow Democrat who was so disillusioned that she planned not to vote this November.

His suspicion was rooted in the account’s username: @AnnetteMas80550. The combination of a partial name with a set of random numbers can be a giveaway for what security experts call a low-budget sock puppet account.

So Muresianu issued a challenge that he had seen elsewhere online. It began with four simple words that, increasingly, are helping to unmask bots powered by artificial intelligence.

“We’re trying to find a director, we have a great script. … That character of Norma is so heartbreakingly beautiful and will never not have relevance, it’s been a great blessing to play her and I’m not willing to let her go yet without one more tribute," the actress added.

I was tempted today by what purported to be an analysis of Trump’s political resurrection.

What brought Trump back to power?

1) the “gatekeepers to cultural respectability” a diverse group of people who have said things Stephens finds objectionable), 2) Biden (for running again, and for not clarifying in a 2022 speech that not all MAGAs are threats to Democracy), and 3) Democrats (apparently entirely represented by the Colorado Secretary of State) for seeking to enforce the 14th Amendment and for arguing against the Republican description of the American economy as “darkness at noon.”

Apparently, these sins are what compel the GOP to be an anti-democratic cult.

Saltburn's Emerald Fennell adapting "Wuthering Heights"

Provocateur Emerald Fennell's most recent film, last year's opinion splitting, discourse stoking satire Saltburn, took viewers into a Gothically infused world of passion, revenge, death, and obsession. And if the Promising Young Woman filmmaker's most recent post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, is anything to go by, then it looks like her next film will follow in a similar vein. Taking to the social media site on Friday evening, Fennell shared a striking Katie Buckley drawn illustration adorned with the words Wuthering Heights — A Film By Emerald Fennell, along with a quote from Emily Brontë's 1847 Gothic romance. Check it out below.

Be with me always — Take any form — Drive me mad" reads the illustration, which features a creepy potion-brewing skeleton with distended limbs. These are the recognisable words of Brontë's Byronic hero Heathcliff in the novel, which centres around the tumultuous history of the titular farmhouse and the destructive romance embarked upon by Heathcliff (another Liverpudlian protagonist for Fennell after Saltburn's Prescot-born Oliver Quick) and his adoptive sister Catherine Earnshaw. Described on release as "a compound of vulgar depravity and unnatural horrors", the subversive, transgressive nature of Brontë's first and only novel seems a natural fit within Fennell's own milieu of taboo-busting, provocative cinematic stories. And in terms of setting, "haunted rural homestead in the English countryside" is one Fennell and fans of her work will feel right at home in after Saltburn.

Manchester Gay Village mural defaced with homophobic graffiti

A mural of Ru Paul's Drag Race star Divina De Campo has been defaced with homophobic abuse for a second time.

The performer saw the graffiti on a mural in Manchester's Gay Village on Sunday while walking back from the Sparkle trans festival weekend.

Created in 2019 to mark De Campo's appearance in the first series of Ru Paul's Drag Race, it was vandalised in 2021.

"It does make you feel less safe. It brings it home that there are still people out there who want to hurt you," said De Campo.

In a post on Instagram page, De Campo said: "We still live in a world where people think this is ok.

"I’ll get it sorted so we don’t have this sort of stuff written about us in the village. We’re not going anywhere!

"The Gay Village is one of the few safe spaces in the whole country really.

"It's a place where LGBTQ+ people can really feel safe."

De Campo said LGBTQ+ hate crime had risen year on year over the past decade and accused some politicians of "using trans and gay people as a political football".

Councillor Garry Bridges, deputy leader of Manchester City Council, said Manchester was "a tolerant city that celebrates the diversity of the people who live here".

Newsom signs bill banning schools from notifying parents about student gender identity

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill on Monday that prohibits mandating that teachers notify families about student gender identity changes, capping a yearlong battle between conservative school boards concerned about parental rights and LGBTQ+ activists worried about vulnerable youths.

The new law shields teachers from retaliation for supporting transgender student rights and prohibits K-12 “forced disclosure” rules. It comes in response to school board decisions in some red pockets of California to notify parents if their child changes their name or pronouns, or if students request to use facilities or participate in programs that don’t match their gender on official records.

The bill would also require the California Department of Education to offer resources to parents and students about how to "manage conversations about gender and identity privately."

Attempts at gender notification policies, including in school districts in Chino Valley and Temecula, have triggered lawsuits over student privacy rights and have drawn the ire of California Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta, who said they could cause "imminent, irreparable harm" to LGBTQ+ young people who may not feel safe coming out at home.

Since 2020, eight states, including Indiana and Tennessee, have passed school gender notification policies, according to the Movement Advancement Project. California is the first to outlaw such policies at the local level.

The Democratic-controlled state Legislature passed AB 1955 last month after a fiery debate LGBTQ+ Democrats had with Republicans who alleged the policy aimed to drive a wedge between parents and their children and was a governmental overstep.

Assemblymember Chris Ward (D-San Diego), who authored the bill, said that teachers are not meant to be "the gender police" and that the new law does not intrude on the parent-child relationship.

"Politically motivated attacks on the rights, safety, and dignity of transgender, nonbinary, and other LGBTQ+ youth are on the rise nationwide, including in California," Ward said in a statement. "As a parent, I urge all parents to talk to their children, listen to them, and love them unconditionally for who they are."

One of the opponents of the legislation said it stripped authority from locally elected school officials and took away the ability of parents to stay informed about their kid's education and well-being.

"AB 1955 is an outrageous attempt to keep parents in the dark while schools indoctrinate kids with radical gender ideology," said Harmeet Dhillon, chief executive and founder of the Center for American Liberty.

I’m reading The Shards by Brett Easton Ellis and it’s awesome. What’s everybody’s thoughts

I’ve read all of Ellis’s books and yeah, some are questionable. Always interesting though. But this one is just so warm. Reading about that age of 17 when you’re gay but still hiding and that feeling that life will start someday soon hits so many memories for me. The hot girlfriend who you were playing a role for, and the clubs where you’d hang out and everyone was cool but kind of absent at the same time. Half my friends ended up gay but it was years later when we would reconnect that we all realised. We lived in the shadow of HIV which was shuts hitting, and the serial killer in the book reads almost like an analogy of that horror that hang over us. Warping our day to day reality with fear.

people have made Spotify lists of the songs mentioned in the book and it’s an incredible listen. I’m probably 5 years older so my memories are more mid 80’s. anyone else reading it? It seems like a DL certainty for a certain generation.

The comedian, 98, gushed over his spouse of 12 years, saying that they were “meant to be” in his latest interview with Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday, reports Page Six.

“I never approached a strange woman in my life,” Van Dyke told the outlet as he sat next to his wife at the couple’s home. “And she walked by and I jumped and I said, ‘Hi, I’m Dick.’ I had no idea she was half my age. Beautiful.”

The couple met in 2006 while backstage at the SAG Awards. Van Dyke saw Silver while he was sitting on a couch.

Firearm-focused YouTuber Matt Carriker "shocked and confused" Trump shooter was wearing his merch

Matt Carriker, a popular firearm-focused YouTuber, said he was "shocked and confused" to learn the shooter was wearing his channel merch during the attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump.

Thomas Matthew Crooks, who shot Trump in the ear at a Pennsylvania rally Saturday, was killed wearing a t-shirt that read "Demolition Ranch" — the name of Carriker's channel, which has 11.6 million subscribers.

"To see my name next to the shooter's name — it sucks, and I wish we could keep that from happening," Carriker said in a video posted Monday.

Texas-based Carriker added he never knew Crooks.

The FBI said Monday it was working '"tirelessly" to figure out the shooter's motive; Crooks' acquaintances have also said they didn't know why the 20-year-old opened fire, killing one bystander.

Carriker said he's been creating YouTube videos for 10 years, and avoids politics across his three channels, which also chronicle his work as a veterinarian.

But he was "thrust into the conversation."

Carriker condemned hate and violence "no matter what side you're on politically." As a husband and father, he added, he didn't want anyone to be "in any more danger because of my videos."

Matt Gaetz Interrupts Kevin McCarthy’s CNN Interview in Heated RNC Floor Feud

The animosity between former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was on display again Tuesday, when the latter interrupted an interview between McCarthy and CNN on the floor of the Republican National Convention to mock him about not having a speaking gig at the event.

The pair have been sparring for more than a year. Gaetz told colleagues that he led the effort to remove McCarthy as speaker last fall after the then-California congressman revived a House Ethics Committee probe into sex trafficking allegations against him, The Daily Beast reported in January.

For his part, McCarthy has said that Gaetz “belongs in jail,” and at a Georgetown University event in April, told attendees that he is no longer speaker because “one person wanted me to stop an ethics complaint because he slept with a 17-year-old.” That congressional probe is ongoing. Federal prosecutors decided not to charge Gaetz in February 2023, and Gaetz has maintained his innocence.

All that came to the forefront during a hostile exchange Tuesday in Milwaukee. As McCarthy was speaking to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, Gaetz burst into frame, badgering McCarthy with rhetorical questions about when he would be speaking at the convention.

“What night are you speaking? Are you speaking tonight, or?” Gaetz began, a jab at McCarthy not being on the list of speakers, while Gaetz is.

McCarthy, not turning to look at Gaetz, responded: “He’s got an ethics complaint about paying—sleeping with a 17-year-old.”

Gaetz shot back: “Hey, if you took that stage, you would get booed off of it. You would get booed off the stage.”

“The Golden Girls” is getting a mystery novel series

“Murder by Cheesecake” is coming out early next year.

The first novel in the all-new Golden Girls Cozy Mystery Series!

When Dorothy’s obnoxious date is found dead in a hotel freezer, it not only ruins a gorgeous cheesecake but threatens the elaborate St. Olaf–themed wedding Rose is hosting.

Things are heating up, and not just because of Blanche’s hot flashes. Rose’s cousin is eloping to Miami, and Rose is playing host. If she can’t balance the groom’s family’s snobbery against the traditional St. Olaf wedding week guidelines, her hometown may never accept her cousin again!

Dorothy quickly realizes she needs a date with whom she can exchange wedding-related wisecracks. Turning to a newfangled VHS dating service, she believes she’s found the ideal conversationalist. Unfortunately, what looks good on TV can actually be a total jerk in real life. It seems she’ll just have to enjoy the company of Sophia, Blanche, and whomever Blanche has targeted for a hookup.

As the Girls all pitch in, Rose is thrilled that the tea-and-fish-themed kickoff event is perfect, not a herring out of place. That is until Dorothy’s date is found dead—face-planted in an otherwise scrumptious-looking cheesecake. With every guest a suspect (especially Dorothy) and a marriage on the line, the four besties must ID the real killer, get the should-be-happy couple down the aisle, and make sure nobody from St. Olaf gets lost in the wilds of Miami. It’s up to the Golden Girls to sleuth out a way for friendship and love to win the day!

“Girl You Know It’s True”- Milli Vanilli biopic is here!

This film is a German made film about Milli Vanilli. It was made and co-financed by an indie movie studio in Germany and a one in South Africa. It was filmed in Germany (Berlin and Munich) and Cape Town, South Africa.

It came out in Germany in December of 2023 to rave reviews. There were originally no official plans to release it in the states but they plan on releasing it here in August or September, but no one knows if they will do a theatrical run here or streaming. Nothing is official. It’s just “coming soon” here, no official date yet.

They have quietly released the trailer in the states today.

The casting is amazing. They look so much like Rob and Fab, it’s insane. I actually want to watch this!

Madonna Biopic in the Works — Again

Madonna‘s biopic is back in the works, nearly a year and a half after news broke that it wasn’t moving forward.

The film about the singer’s life, which was set to chronicle her decades-long career, was originally set at Universal Pictures, but plans for it fell through in January 2023.

In a new Instagram post, Madonna shared a compilation of photos of her working on a typewriter, with an array of papers around her. In one of the shots, a potential title — Who’s That Girl, a nod to her 1987 song and film of the same name — is seen on the first page of what looks like a script.

Another glimpse at the script reads “rewrites by Madonna and ECW,” seemingly referring to Secretary writer Erin Cressida Wilson, who was brought onto the project after Diablo Cody had to step away from it. Amy Pascal was set to produce the movie originally.

“I Need A-lot of Bandz to make this………..OKAY,” she captioned the post. “(Story of my life.)”

When the project was shut down, a source told The Hollywood Reporter that development was always a struggle for the movie and that the many drafts of the scripts were always over 180 pages. There were conversations about splitting the movie in two or making it a miniseries, but that never panned out.

“You have 40 years of success, and it’s very hard to put that into one movie,” the source said at the time.

Madonna was set to direct the biopic. Julia Garner was the frontrunner to play the legendary artist, after a long audition process that saw many stars — including Florence Pugh, Odessa Young and Alexa Demie — vying for the lead role. The hopefuls participated in intense and sometimes 11-hour choreography sessions with Madonna’s choreographer and the artist herself.

At this time, it is unknown if Universal is still attached to the project.

THR reached out to Universal Pictures and reps for Madonna.

Reporting from the Road -- A Gay Black Gen Z in Love with Trump!

(I know - TL;DR) So I stopped for the night in North Carolina on my way "up Home," and I paused to chat with the young (obviously) gay black man at the front desk, who was actually working here the last time I did this drive. Being the intrepid political scientist/former pollster that I am (I did political polling in grad school), I asked him innocuously, "So who are you voting for?" And you know what I was expecting to hear.

Please pick me the fuck up off the floor. "Trump," he said softly. I gently asked him more questions, careful to stay in pollster mode as opposed to challenging him. He said, "I fell in love with Trump! It's like a cult. You get swept up in it. You can actually lose yourself with him. I'm so excited to see what he can do for the country." He told me he'd contributed $ to Trump many times, and sent him Christmas and birthday cards (!), which he'd never done for a politician before. He continued to gush like a schoolboy with a crush for 15 more minutes. I was trying to be kind and sweet and not look shocked.

I asked him if he got to know Trump on The Apprentice, and he told me he did. His parents are retired military, and ardent Democrats, and disapprove of his choice, but he told me that since he and they are from (of all places) Connecticut, they know how to agree to disagree.

I would ordinarily be out on I-95 by this time, but I was so flabbergasted, I had to write this here just to get it off my chest. I guess North Carolina is lost... Now I must get back on the road, fellow DLers. Love you!

The Mirage Casino is closing

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The iconic Mirage hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip will shut its doors this summer, the end of an era for a property credited with helping transform Sin City into an ultra-luxury resort destination.

The July 17 closure will clear the way for major renovations and construction on the 80-acre (32-hectare) property, which is to reopen in 2027 as the Hard Rock Las Vegas, featuring a hotel tower in the shape of a guitar soaring nearly 700 feet (about 210 meters) above the heart of the Strip.

“We’d like to thank the Las Vegas community and team members for warmly welcoming Hard Rock after enjoying 34 years at The Mirage,” Jim Allen, chairman of Hard Rock International, said Wednesday in a statement announcing the closure.

It will be the second time this year that a Strip casino shutters. The Tropicana Las Vegas closed in April after 67 years to make room for a $1.5 billion baseball stadium planned as the future home of the relocating Oakland A's.

Developed by former casino mogul Steve Wynn, the Mirage opened with a Polynesian theme as the Strip's first megaresort in 1989, spurring a building boom on the famous boulevard through the 1990s.

Its volcano fountain was one of the first sidewalk attractions, predating the Venetian’s canals and the Bellagio’s dancing fountains. It was known as a venue where tourists could see Siegfried and Roy taming white tigers or a Cirque du Soleil act set to a Beatles soundtrack.

The final curtain on the Beatles-themed show, which brought Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr back together for public appearances throughout its 18-year run, also comes down in July.

Hard Rock International said Wednesday that more than 3,000 employees will be laid off and it expects to pay out $80 million in severance.

The Culinary Workers Union, which has represented about 1,700 employees at the Mirage since it opened, said in a statement that the contract it won last year ensures laid-off workers will get $2,000 for each year of service.

"House of the Dragon" returns June 16th for a second season

I just binge-watched the first season again in preparation for the new one, and it's much better than I remembered. The acting is absolutely first rate, especially Emma d"Arcy (as the adult Rhaenyra), Eve Best (as Rhaenys), and Olivia Cooke as the conflicted adult Queen Alicent. The men are excellent too, although Matt Smith is playing the same basic role as the bratty Daemon as he did as the bratty young Prince Philip (only he's sluttier and more murderous in this). Both Steve Toussaint (as the Sea Snake) and Fabien Frankel (as Ser Criston Cole) are very hot and do fine jobs. (We do need more male nudity, however).

The biggest problems for me are the younger actors: Alicent's children and Rhaenyra's children are not played by very good nor attractive young actors. But they will become more and more the stars of the show as it goes on, alongside their mothers. I hope they get replaced by better adult actors as they age.

The season premiere episode is entitled "A Son for a Son," which is bad news for Alicent since her son Aedmond killed Rhaenyra's son Luke at the very end of last season.

"An" OnlyFans Star Peachy Boy and 10 Examples of Why We Love the Fruits of his Labor

When someone decides to become a social media influencer, they should first consider who they are trying to influence.

Clad in green leggings and holding a measuring tape, the shapely model gets a bit cheeky in his efforts.

Gaiman’s position is that he strongly denies any allegations of non-consensual sex with the women and adds New Zealand police did not take up his offer of assistance over one woman’s complaint in 2022, which, he says, reflects its lack of substance.

[quote]Scarlett, 23, alleges that Gaiman sexually assaulted her within hours of their first meeting in February 2022 in a bath at his New Zealand residence, where she worked as a nanny to his child. Tortoise understands that Gaiman’s account is that they only “cuddled” and “made out” in the bath and that he had established consent for this.

Nancy Pelosi to Biden: "Sometimes life just isn't fair, kiddo."

Pelosi privately fields battleground Dem calls as she works to address Biden crisis

By SARAH FERRIS

One House Democrat anxious about President Joe Biden’s effect on the 2024 campaign recently sought out guidance from a trusted party leader: Nancy Pelosi.

This lawmaker, who represents a swing seat and was granted anonymity to describe private conversations, said Pelosi asked detailed questions about congressional district-level polling and was “very receptive” to concerns that Biden couldn’t win in November. The member ended the phone call with the distinct impression that Pelosi believed Biden should exit the presidential race.

This lawmaker said the former speaker offered to talk to any other members of Congress who wanted to reach out to her with concerns — though Pelosi cautioned that she would not be initiating those conversations herself.

The conversation described by this lawmaker is the latest example of Pelosi’s behind-the-scenes role in guiding her party as it struggles to find its way through Biden’s political crisis.

Pelosi is not telling members what she plans to do with the information she is receiving from the Democrats who seek her out. But many of her colleagues see her as a last hope of a kind — believing that Pelosi, having stepped down from leadership herself to make way for generational change, may be the best possible messenger to break through with Biden.

“She’s the political voice of the Democratic caucus right now,” said another House Democrat who has spoken with her, noting there’s no one better to assess the damage that Biden’s candidacy would do to the ranks of the caucus.

“She’s been exclusively focused on winning the House for the last 20 odd years,” that member added, noting that they believed Pelosi is “trying to be respectful” given that she is no longer officially in leadership and has long made clear she does not want to bigfoot House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries.

Jeffries, for his part, had a private meeting with Biden last week to relay the broad concerns of his caucus. But Jeffries has revealed nothing about that meeting, including whether he personally asked Biden to withdraw from the ticket — though he did release a statement the next day that many members interpreted as an effort to provide political cover for them to continue voicing concerns about the president.

Those who have known Pelosi for decades are predicting that she is, indeed, playing a game of “3-D chess,” according to five Democratic lawmakers and senior aides. She built a reputation for being incredibly strategic during her reign atop the caucus, which included managing the two impeachments of Donald Trump and passing enormous, complex bills like the Affordable Care Act.

It didn’t go unnoticed, for instance, that dozens of Democrats are now clamoring to be part of a letter to delay Biden’s nomination process — led by Pelosi ally Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), whose sprawling district is just north of San Francisco.

The same day, it was reported that another of Pelosi’s closest allies, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), had warned at a private fundraiser that he believed Biden would keep Democrats from winning the House.

“Nancy Pelosi has one of the strongest cases to make,” said one Democratic aide to a member who has voiced concerns about Biden’s electability. “She stepped down and passed the torch.”

MTG faces calls to resign after wild statement on Trump shooting: ‘Democrats are the party of pedophiles’

Marjorie Taylor Greene is facing calls to resign on social media after she quickly blamed Democrats for the attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump, saying Republicans are in a “battle” against the “party of pedophiles.”

Greene has been characteristically outspoken after a gunman identified as 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks opened fire on a Trump rally in rural Pennsylvania on Saturday evening, striking the president’s ear just minutes into his speech.

The Georgia Republican congresswoman baselessly alleged there’s a conspiracy afoot, insisting “Democrats wanted this to happen” and have “wanted Trump gone for years and they’re prepared to do anything to make that happen.”

After attacking Democrats for repeatedly calling Trump a threat to democracy, she soon blasted the party with more extreme rhetoric, calling the country’s polarized politics a “battle.”

“We are in a battle between GOOD and EVIL,” she wrote on X on Sunday.

“The Democrats are the party of pedophiles, murdering the innocent unborn, violence, and bloody, meaningless, endless wars.

“They want to lock up their political opponents, and terrorize innocent Americans who would tell the truth about it.

“The Democrat party is flat out evil, and yesterday they tried to murder President Trump.”

Greene was slammed for her comments, with one X user writing: “Resign in disgrace. It was a Republican.”

“Donald Trump almost got shot dead by a Republican gun nut wielding an AR-15 — and this is how you respond? You’re truly beyond deplorable,” Omar Rivero, the co-founder of Occupy Democrats, told Greene.

“Your rhetoric is REPREHENSIBLE. Sit down,” X user Art Candee wrote, adding in another post that Greene “has been crying about Democrat’s rhetoric for almost a day. Then she posts this. Vile hypocrisy from that woman.”

“You’re a disgrace to the United States Congress. This is so pathetic. Resign,” Bryce Allers added.

Demolition Ranch YouTuber says he's 'shocked and confused' Trump shooter was wearing channel's T-shirt

“This channel was never meant to incite violence or hate,” YouTuber Matt Carriker said Monday. “I don’t want any violence or hate anywhere around me.”

A Texas YouTuber who runs a popular gun enthusiast channel is distancing himself from the gunman who opened fire on former President Donald Trump during a rally Saturday in western Pennsylvania.

Photos verified by NBC News showed the shooter, identified by law enforcement as Thomas Matthew Crooks, wearing a Demolition Ranch shirt on the day of the shooting. The images began circulating after Crooks, 20, of Bethel Park, was killed by at least one Secret Service sharpshooter.

In a nearly six-minute-long video Monday, Matt Carriker, who runs the YouTube channel Demolition Ranch, said: “We were shocked and confused to find this out. The shooter who tried to assassinate Trump was wearing merch from my channel, wearing a Demolition Ranch T-shirt. And that sucked to see that.”

“Yeah, that was rough," he added.

Carriker said he keeps politics out of his videos and does not support violence on his channel.

Anti-LGBTQ rhetoric plays a prominent role in first night of Republican Convention

Some high-profile speakers on the first night of the Republican National Convention leaned into anti-LGBTQ rhetoric, doubling down on the party's 2024 platform, which calls for keeping "men out of women's sports" and ending "left-wing gender insanity."

Their speeches Monday especially targeted transgender and non-gender-conforming people.

“Let me state this clearly: There are only two genders,” said Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.

Rep. John James, R-Mich., criticized transgender women's playing in women's sports, a popular conservative talking point.

“Our daughters were sold on hope, and now they’re being forced on the playing fields and changing rooms of biological males," James said.

Minutes earlier, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., referred to another prominent conservative target, including in Florida's so-called Don't Say Gay bill: the teaching of gender ideology or sexual orientation in schools.

“This fringe agenda includes biological males competing against girls and the sexualization and indoctrination of our children,” he said as the audience booed.

Monday’s speeches take place against the backdrop of a spate of anti-LGBTQ incidents, including anti-Pride flag rhetoric and the slashing of Pride Month banners.

Anti-LGBTQ legislation has increased in recent years. Last year, at least 75 anti-LGBTQ laws — including ones that targeted gender-affirming care and school sports — were enacted across 23 states, according to an NBC News analysis of American Civil Liberties Union data.

Ahead of the convention, party members published their platform, which says Republicans will "end left-wing gender insanity."

"We will keep men out of women’s sports, ban Taxpayer funding for sex change surgeries, and stop Taxpayer-funded Schools from promoting gender transition, reverse Biden’s radical rewrite of Title IX Education Regulations, and restore protections for women and girls," the document said.

How often do you move your furniture around in your home?

When I was a kid, I used to get bored, so I'd move the furniture around in my room and re-arrange posters on the walls. I probably moved the furniture around 3-4 times while in high school.

Today, I have someone coming to repair my AC units, so had to move the furniture to give him clear access and realized that I've had the furniture in the same positions since buying it.

Do people move their furniture around or do people usually just leave it positioned in the same spot and maintain the current position when replacing it.

Consider it a badge of honour, Masha!

[quote]U.S. journalist and author Masha Gessen was convicted in absentia Monday by a Moscow court on charges of spreading false information about the military and was sentenced to eight years in prison. Russian police put Gessen on a wanted list in December, and Russian media reported the case was based on statements they made about atrocities in Bucha in an interview with a popular Russian online blogger.

[quote]The Moscow-born Gessen, a staff writer for The New Yorker and a columnist for The New York Times who lives in the U.S., is a prominent critic of Vladimir Putin and an award-winning writer.

This apartment near near Castello Sforzesco was featured in a recent NYTimes '$1.5M Houses in Milan' Real Estate section. It could be a little bigger, it could be on an upper floor rather than the (raised) ground level, but it's a lovely apartment in a very handsome building with a Flatiron street presence from its diamond shaped lot with private balconies onto a nice interior courtyard. It retains some period features and has some unusual Art Deco glass panels. The apartment is sold furnished with some respectable furniture and some things I would replace in time, but the high ceilings, and natural light from the French windows make for a very pleasant space I thought.

Couple Leaps 90 Feet Into Gorge From Popular Photo Spot to Avoid Oncoming Train

A married couple was forced to leap from a train trestle into a 90-foot gorge to avoid an oncoming locomotive that interrupted their scenic photoshoot, Indian business news website LiveMint reported.

Horrifying footage shows the couple diving from India’s Goram Ghat Bridge in Pali, Rajasthan, India moments before a huge passenger engine passes over the very spot in which they stood.

"They were walking on the meter gauge railway line on Goram Ghat bridge when suddenly [a] Marwar passenger train from Kamlighat railway station approached," authorities explained.

Witnesses reported that the couple was deeply absorbed in taking photos and creating other content for their social media pages. They seemed completely unaware of the encroaching train until it was nearly upon them, fellow sightseers said.

The video, recorded mere feet from the train, shows the locomotive bearing down on the pair. Though the actual moment of their jump isn’t seen on-screen, it appears they decided to make the dive at the very last moment just as the train stopped where they were standing.

The victims were confirmed to be Rahul Mewada, 22, and Jhanvi Mewada, 20. Miraculously, both survived the fall; however, they sustained “grievous injuries” in the process. Rahul’s condition is reportedly “particularly severe.”

Emergency services quickly arrived at the scene and transported the Mewadas to a local hospital, where their injuries were evaluated and found to be “significant.”

Man who was given a life sentence for stealing Guy Fieri's $200,000 car is released on parole

A young man who was convicted of stealing celebrity chef Guy Fieri's $200,000 Lamborghini and later shooting into an occupied vehicle has been granted parole after serving about 11 years in prison.

At the age of 17, Max Wade stole Fieri's Lamborghini to impress a girl and, months later, attempted to shoot a man who was dating that same girl, crimes that led to his 2013 sentence of 21 years to life in prison.

Wade, now 29, was found guilty of commercial burglary and auto theft 11 years ago after he rappelled from a high window into British Motors in San Francisco where Fieri's Lamborghini was being repaired. At the time of the 2011 robbery, Wade didn't know the car belonged to Fieri, according to the SFGate.

Wade was also found guilty of attempted murder and firing a gun into an occupied vehicle in Mill Valley after he shot at a pickup truck carrying the girl he was infatuated with and her date. Wade was riding a motorcycle during the incident and the San Francisco Standard reported that he wasn't aware that the girl was in the vehicle at the time. Neither person was injured.

The State Board of Parole's decision to grant Wade parole is pending a 120-day review period.

After the shooting, authorities found the stolen Lamborghini, along with a motorcycle and revolver that was used in the shooting, in a Richmond storage facility where Wade had rented space, according to the Mercury News.

At the time of the trial, Fieri testified that he did not know the teen and did not give him permission to take his car out of the San Francisco dealership.

At a July parole hearing, Wade said he did not try to kill the man in the pickup truck out of jealousy, but because of an online confrontation between the two a few weeks earlier, according to the Standard.

In 2021, a judge reduced Wade's sentence by 10 years after Wade's attorney petitioned the judge to reconsider the sentence imposed for Wade's gun charges, the Mercury News reported.

The Gunman and the Would-Be Dictator

When a madman hammered nearly to death the husband of then–House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Donald Trump jeered and mocked. One of Trump’s sons and other close Trump supporters avidly promoted false claims that Paul Pelosi had somehow brought the onslaught upon himself through a sexual misadventure.

After authorities apprehended a right-wing-extremist plot to abduct Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Trump belittled the threat at a rally. He disparaged Whitmer as a political enemy. His supporters chanted “Lock her up.” Trump laughed and replied, “Lock them all up.”

Fascism feasts on violence. In the years since his own supporters attacked the Capitol to overturn the 2020 election—many of them threatening harm to Speaker Pelosi and Vice President Mike Pence—Trump has championed the invaders, would-be kidnappers, and would-be murderers as martyrs and hostages. He has vowed to pardon them if returned to office. His own staffers have testified to the glee with which Trump watched the mayhem on television.

Now the bloodshed that Trump has done so much to incite against others has touched him as well. The attempted murder of Trump—and the killing of a person nearby—is a horror and an outrage. More will be learned about the man who committed this appalling act, and who was killed by the Secret Service. Whatever his mania or motive, the only important thing about him is the law-enforcement mistake that allowed him to bring a deadly weapon so close to a campaign event and gain a sight line of the presidential candidate. His name should otherwise be erased and forgotten.

It is sadly incorrect to say, as so many have, that political violence “has no place” in American society. Assassinations, lynchings, riots, and pogroms have stained every page of American political history. That has remained true to the present day. In 2016, and even more in 2020, Trump supporters brought weapons to intimidate opponents and vote-counters. Trump and his supporters envision a new place for violence as their defining political message in the 2024 election.

Fascist movements are secular religions. Like all religions, they offer martyrs as their proof of truth. The Mussolini movement in Italy built imposing monuments to its fallen comrades. The Trump movement now improves on that: The leader himself will be the martyr in chief, his own blood the basis for his bid for power and vengeance.

The 2024 election was already shaping up as a symbolic contest between an elderly and weakening liberalism too frail and uncertain to protect itself and an authoritarian, reactionary movement ready to burst every barrier and trash every institution. To date, Trump has led only a minority of U.S. voters, but that minority’s passion and audacity have offset what it lacks in numbers. After the shooting, Trump and his backers hope to use the iconography of a bloody ear and face, raised fist, and call to “Fight!” to summon waverers to their cause of installing Trump as an anti-constitutional ruler, exempted from ordinary law by his allies on the Supreme Court.

Other societies have backslid to authoritarianism because of some extraordinary crisis: economic depression, hyperinflation, military defeat, civil strife. In 2024, U.S. troops are nowhere at war. The American economy is booming, providing spectacular and widely shared prosperity. A brief spasm of mild post-pandemic inflation has been overcome. Indicators of social health have abruptly turned positive since Trump left office after years of deterioration during his term. Crime and fatal drug overdoses are declining in 2024; marriages and births are rising. Even the country’s problems indirectly confirm the country’s success: Migrants are crossing the border in the hundreds of thousands, because they know, even if Americans don’t, that the U.S. job market is among the hottest on Earth.

Josh Safdie to Direct Timothée Chalamet in A24 Produced Ping Pong Movie

Looks like The Safdies are really into sports biopics.

Timothée Chalamet will star in Josh Safdie’s “Marty Supreme,” a sports biopic about professional ping pong player Marty Reisman, set to be produced by A24.

“Marty Supreme” is written by Safdie and Ronald Bronstein. A24 is already producing Benny Safdie’s “The Smashing Machine,” another sports biopic, this one about MMA fighter Mark Kerr.

“Marty Supreme” will reunite Josh with A24, which distributed his last two films, “Uncut Gems” and “Good Time. Reisman’s 1974 autobiography “The Money Player: The Confessions of America’s Greatest Table Tennis Champion and Hustler,” will be used as a template for the screen adaptation. Here’s Variety …

Reisman, who died in 2012, was a table tennis champion who started his career as a hustler in Manhattan, playing for bets and prize money. He won 22 major ping pong titles from 1946 to 2002 and won five bronze medals at the World Table Tennis Championships. At 67, he competed in the United States National Hardbat Championship and became the oldest player to win an open national competition in a racket sport.

'Why do I feel like death is near?': Mental state of suspect in deadly L.A. crash probed

Four days before a woman barreled into a busy Windsor Hills intersection at more than 100 mph, causing a deadly, fiery crash, prosecutors say, she searched online using her phone: “Why do I feel like death is near?”

That same day, they say, she also searched, “Can you see your dea[th] coming?”

Those internet searches were part of the evidence presented by prosecutors Friday against Nicole Linton, a traveling nurse charged in the deaths of five people and a fetus after crashing through the intersection of La Brea and Slauson avenues on Aug. 4, 2022.

Linton’s mental state, both before and during the crash, plays a central role in her legal proceedings. After a multi-day preliminary hearing that began last week, a judge is set to decide whether there is enough evidence of a crime to take the case to trial. The preliminary hearing is set to continue this week.

Linton's family has said she struggled with bipolar disorder since 2018, and a psychiatrist testified Thursday that Linton had twice been hospitalized on account of mental issues prior to the crash.

However, Caleb Mason — Litton's defense attorney — argued in court that she might have blacked out moments before the crash, possibly due to a seizure.

Linton's defense attorneys have also raised questions about when she was taken into police custody, and whether statements she made after the crash should be admissible if she had not yet been advised of her Miranda rights.

Prosecutors allege that Linton sped down La Brea Avenue toward the busy intersection of Slauson Avenue just after 1:30 p.m.

California Highway Patrol Investigator Jeffrey Crain testified that Linton's Mercedes-Benz reached the intersection at a speed of 131 mph, striking multiple vehicles and sparking a fire that was caught on surveillance video.

Killed in the collision were Nathesia Lewis, 42; Lynette Noble, 38; 23-year-old Asherey Ryan, who was 8½ months pregnant at the time; Ryan's 11-month-old son Alonzo Quintero; and her boyfriend, Reynold Lester.

German Porsch exec mom dropped newborn girl out of window, fearing baby would derail career

The world of heterosexual is a sick and boring life.

Jovanovic had secretly given birth at home on September 12, and then dropped her newborn daughter from her apartment window, at a height of nearly 12 feet. A passerby found the baby with a shattered skull on the asphalt and immediately alerted the police. The child succumbed to its injuries.

[quote]At the beginning of the trial, Jovanovic confessed to the crime, but could not explain her motives. She claimed she didn't know she was pregnant and panicked once she gave birth. Jovanovic had become an executive at Porsche, and prosecutors argued that she feared being a new mother would jeopardize her career.

Missing Brit twink's body has been found

he body found in the search for missing Brit Jay Slater was found a short walk away from the location his phone last pinged.

Slater went missing almost a month ago (17 June) in Tenerife after attending a festival and staying at a property on the island far away from his resort and friends.

He had called his friend to say he was in a mountainous area and didn't know where exactly he was, and that his phone was running out of battery.

Extensive search efforts were launched to find Slater, and the official search came to an end, but Spanish authorities continued a 'discrete' effort to find him.

Now a body has been found in the search, and authorities indicated that they thought the body was likely to be Slater.

In 1983 a 23 year old UK woman died after eating what is still considered the largest meal ever consumed

It was 8 a.m. on a Sunday in 1983 when a 23-year-old woman arrived at the accident and emergency department of Royal Liverpool Hospital complaining of abdominal pain.

Her belly button had popped out like you’d expect to see during pregnancy, and she was finding it difficult to breathe.

Nurses questioned her and she confessed that between midnight and 4 a.m. she had sat down to a late dinner.

The gigantic meal comprised 1 lb (453 g) of liver, 2 lb (907 g) of kidneys, 0.5 lb (226 g) of steak, two eggs, 1 lb (453 g) of cheese, two large slices of bread, 1 lb (453 g) of mushrooms, 2 lb (907 g) of carrots, one cauliflower, 10 peaches, four pears, two apples, four bananas, 2 lb (907 g) of plums, 2 lb (907 g) of grapes and two glasses of milk.

Enty Lawyer identified

Enty Lawyer the blind item king from Crazy Days and Nights has been outed and he isn't even practicing law if he is even an actual attorney. He is a fifty something year old podcaster and blogger who is in Indio, CA, He doesn't even live in LA. He is allegedlgy a very sick person and has done horrific things to women. His whole thing where he exposes predators is rich as he is also one. I have been in communication with a woman he has done terrible things to! He recorded hours of her when they were in a "relationship" together. She found out later on that he was married with 2 daughters. He love bombed her and gaslit her into believing they were going to live together in California and get married and have children. He told her he loved her and was coming to be with her and 1 hour later she was served with stalking papers. The court saw his texts to her and said that the stalking complaints were not valid but by making the papers so public he put her at risk from her ex husband who she escaped from getting beaten by. This man needs to pay the price -- the same price he's been putting on other predators in Hollywood. Now that I know this, I know that this man knows no celebrities, is probably not a lawyer, isn't practicing law, is married with kids but victimizes other women. He got into a huge fight with his wife which somehow he left a voicemail of the other woman. His former cohost for true crime was apparently treated the same way.

Miami mayor outraged by Copa America disaster at Hard Rock Stadium

The mayor of Miami joined a chorus of condemnation for the dangerous rush of fans entering Hard Rock Stadium without tickets Sunday night for the Copa America final between Argentina and Colombia. The fans pushed through gates, trampled people, hopped fences, climbed through the ventilation system, and trashed an escalator while evading police and security personnel.

"We are outraged by the unprecedented events at tonight's Copa America finals," read a joint statement from Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and Chief Public Safety Officer James Reyes. "The Copa America final is organized by Conmebol and Miami-Dade Police Department provides security support along with other law enforcement agencies. Tonight, MDPD assigned 550 officers to the stadium, including our Priority Response Team.

"In addition, MDPD brought in more personnel from more jurisdictions to support everyone's safety and wellbeing."

The statement also said the Mayor received briefings on plans to get everyone out of the stadium safely at the end of the game, and added the incident will be reviewed to prevent issues in the future. Hard Rock Stadium in Miami is scheduled to host seven World Cup games in 2026.

"Let's be clear: This situation should never have taken place and cannot happen again," the statement read.

Reactions from organizations, fans, players and media were strong and swift during and after the match. Horror and fear combined with calls to action for significant change ahead of 2026.

Record-Breaking Accomplishments On Jobs And Unemployment Under Bide

The Biden Administration’s robust and durable track record on jobs and unemployment is breaking records, putting up some of the best results we’ve seen in half a century.

First, the numbers. The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that May saw an additional 272,000 jobs created, above most forecasters’ expectations. Unemployment ticked up from 3.9% to 4%, although such slight single-month changes are statistically meaningless (if the rate rises for several months in a row, then you have a trend.

Jobs increased in several sectors—health care, leisure and hospitality, and professional services. And wages continued rising, with average hourly earnings moving upward. BLS notes that “over the past 12 months, average hourly earnings have increased by 4.1%.”

Should we worry that higher wages are causing inflation?

No.

Although wage gains are positive, their rate of increase is slowing.

And our inflation is driven by structural factors in supply chains, housing, and aggressive pricing by companies. Even Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has moderated his views, saying in March that wages are not the main reason for persistent inflation.

Glenn Close Played Trump’s Running Mate’s Mamaw

Too soon to ask her to commit seppuku for her shame?

---------------------

But what does Amy Adams think about all this? Donald Trump selected Hillbilly Elegy memoirist J.D. Vance as his running mate for the 2024 election, per NBC News. Vance will likely be ratified as Trump’s running mate at the Republican National Convention, which runs from July 15 through 18. Vance is currently an Ohio senator, after being elected to the position in 2023. “After lengthy deliberation and thought, and considering the tremendous talents of many others, I have decided that the person best suited to assume the position of Vice President of the United States is Senator J.D. Vance of the Great State of Ohio,” Trump said in his Truth Social post sharing his choice. Notably, in 2016, Vance called Trump the “opioid of the masses” in a guest column in The Atlantic. Since then, he’s become a bit more of a fan.

Vance rose to prominence with his 2016 memoir about growing up in poverty, which was later adapted into the 2020 film of the same name starring Amy Adams as his mother and Glenn Close as “Mamaw.” In Vulture’s review of the film, critic Alison Willmore noted Vance’s “desire to hold up his family, his own success, and his generalizations about the Appalachia from which they came as evidence that race has little to do with endemic poverty.” We have to imagine it will be very difficult for a man associated with Glenn Close’s eighth Oscar loss to win over the American public.

Who will be speaking at next week's Republican National Convention?

Former President Donald Trump will be officially renominated next week to be the Republican Party’s standard-bearer for the third presidential election in a row as he seeks to return to the Oval Office.

GOP delegates from around the country will gather in Milwaukee for the Republican National Convention, with much of the country following along through the primetime speeches each night.

While an official list of speakers hasn't yet been announced, here are some of the people who've reportedly been tapped to demonstrate their support for Trump on stage next week.

Trump and his VP pick - Trump will formally accept the nomination on Thursday, the last night of the convention. His yet-to-be-named choice for vice president will likely speak the night before.

Donald Trump Jr. - “Trump Jr. will speak at next week’s Republican convention before his father’s vice presidential pick.” [The Hill]

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis - “After initially having been given no role at next week’s Republican National Convention, Ron DeSantis — the governor of Florida and past rival of former President Donald Trump — has now been added to the speaking schedule.” [NBC News]

Teamsters President Sean O’Brien - “O’Brien has framed his decision to speak at the Republican National Convention next week as a savvy maneuver to keep the union’s doors open to whoever prevails in November’s presidential election.” [The New York Times]

David Sacks, entrepreneur - “David Sacks is part of a group of wealthy, high-profile Silicon Valley venture capitalists and investors who have thrown their support behind Trump.” [Reuters]

UFC president Dana White - “The two have a close and long-lasting relationship as the former president, an avid UFC fan, often attends fights sitting ringside along White and other celebrities.” [ABC News]

TV personality Savannah Chrisley - “Chrisley is expected to take the main stage during the campaign's Tuesday evening programming, themed ‘Make America Safe Again.’” [ABC News]

Amber Rose, rapper and former reality TV star - “‘It’s True! ... #MAGA,’ said the model, who famously had a past relationship with rapper Kayne West that ended in 2010 and briefly married to rapper Wiz Khalifa in 2013. [USA Today]

Trent Conaway, mayor of East Palestine, Ohio- “Trump visited East Palestine on Feb. 22, 2023, weeks after a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed in the northeastern Ohio village.” [Politico]

Rep. Jim Banks- “Banks, who is running for Indiana's open U.S. Senate seat, will give a primetime speech at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday night.” [Indianapolis Star]

Jeff Kaufmann, Iowa GOP chair- “Republican Party of Iowa Chair Jeff Kaufmann will deliver the speech formally nominating Donald Trump for president.” [Des Moines Register]

Kari Lake, U.S. Senate candidate- “Lake is running for the seat currently held by the retiring U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, I-Ariz., and her role in the convention suggests that she remains a key messenger of an agenda Trump describes as America First. [Arizona Republic]

Rep. Elise Stefanik- “Stefanik of New York will be speaking on one of the first three days.”

Heed my words: The shooter is absolutely not my type and will never be my type.” At press time, Trump had offered his condolences to the other shooting victims and their families, saying it was not fair for anyone to be attacked by such a nasty, unfuckable monster.

"One of the most enduring mysteries in the entertainment industry is Tyler Perry, whose adamancy in proudly putting his name in the title of execrable garbage like Divorce in the Black is utterly mystifying."

"'Divorce in the Black' is a baffling viewing experience, and while it opens with a comfortable sense of theatrical nonsense, it quickly dissolves into tediousness."

Can you imagine if it had been Biden shot at?

Just picture Joe Biden getting shot at mere hours ago and he was injured somehow because he had blood on him. The entire media apparatus takes the word from White House sources that he's fine, it was a scrape...no, wait, he was grazed by a bullet, he went to the hospital, now he's playing golf, he's fine. Move along.

Do you think that would be the end of it? Hell. No. The media would have documented every step he took after the shooting. They would be Zaprudering the film more than Twitter. They would be hounding doctors at whatever hospital he went to for press conferences. The White House press corp would be filing endless stand-ups on the White House lawn asking for extremely detailed reports from doctors on Biden's injury. Was he shot? Was it glass? What happened? Can he continue his duties? Has he had a Cat Scan or MRI? Has he seen a neurologist? Should he drop out of the race?

We would be seeing endless close-ups of his ear while Sanjay Gupta points at it with a highlighter trying to find the wound.

They wouldn't be paying an ounce of attention to a VP announcement OR a convention.

What the actual fuck is going on here?

Was trump grazed by a bullet or was it glass? Where are the doctors who treated him? Have they done several press conferences? Why is the press just sitting back and letting A DOCUMENTED PATHOLOGICAL LIAR run this show with no pushback or investigation whatsoever.

Don't tell me there is a liberal media or the media isn't completely in the tank for trump. This just proves it once and for all. What a bunch of stenographers our press is.

Today is 30 days without drinking

I originally posted my thread when my body and mind felt so run down and I knew I couldn't continue going on the way I was. It took me a few days to stop drinking after posting my original thread.

I've not attended any AA meetings (online or in person), and you guys are the only people who know I stopped a month ago. My best friend, who knew I fell off the wagon late last year, thought I quickly regained my footing and stopped drinking around the time by dog died. I don't know if i'll ever tell anyone it took me 4 months to get over my dog dying and everything else that happened last year before I picked myself up and dusted myself off. Maybe one day.

I've lost about 6 pounds, but besides taking walks a few days of the week, I haven't been too serious about it (haven't counted calories or gotten disciplined about exercising). I've had no real cravings, although living in "wine country" I'm constantly confronted with billboards about this or that wine or a local winery or event. Yesterday I saw that talked about a winery's cabernet and I did get a teeny feeling of longing, like missing an old friend, but I quickly put it away. I have to treat this like somebody I knew died and they aren't coming back again. That was the only time I've felt that in the last 30 days.

My work has improved, and I finally bought my new car this past Saturday - a 2020 Nissan Rogue with (almost) all of the comfort features I wanted. I've done a lot of work on my yard and have been enjoying my new puppy. I've definitely been eating better and started my boss and myself on smoothies for lunch a few times a week (made in our office).

Life is more calm. More improvement is needed of course, but I feel better. Certainly my gastric issues have cleared up. Although right now I'm on Day 8 of a cold/sore throat I caught having to serve jury duty for 3 days about a week and a half ago. Being stuffed into a room with about 100 people 3 days in a row is bound to do that to you.

To anyone who is in the middle of quitting drinking or contemplating it, feel free to add to the discussion here. This is a place for anyone to chime in if needed. You can do it - I did it (again) and you can too. Do whatever you need to do to stop killing yourself slowly.

thanks to everyone here whether they've commented or not. You all have been an important part of this journey. Happy Wednesday!

I’ve been on Reddit during my lunch time…

And see plenty of idiots & assholes glorifying Trump for surviving his assassination attempt with merely a nicked earlobe, while not too many are mentioning that a child saw her father murdered right in front of her.

I’m heartbroken that any child (or adult) had to witness something so devastating.

These assholes do NOT give a flying fuck about children, despite their years of Q-Anon conspiracy theories propagated about.

JD Vance on Stephanopoulos This Week

George Stephanopoulos was having none of JD Vance this morning. George kept redirecting Vance on his evasive answers and finally started to paraphrase Vance's responses in the manner that Vance was trying to avoid expressing. George implied that Vance wants to be Trump's VP and would not have certified the 2020 election. He gave Vance opportunity to rant a whole bunch of pro-Trump bullshit but highlighted the more outrageous things Vance has said publicly, like that he (Vance) would advise Trump to immediately fire every government civil servant and replace them with "our people." In the end, George said "you've made it pretty clear that you believe Trump can defy the Supreme Court. Thank you and goodbye." Vance tried to protest but his mic was cut and George ignored him.

Years ago, as an author of "Hillbilly Elegy", this dude was trying to ride a wave of sympathy for poor whites saying they were unfairly overlooked, misunderstood and demonized. Prior to 2016 he was a self-professed "never Trumper" because he said Trump wanted to lead poor whites to a "dark place." Now he thinks Trump was a great president and is totally pro-Trump. Vance is just another racist, xenophobic, entitled piece of shit that has sought personal prosperity on the backs of poor white America. He is an Ivy-educated, corporate sellout who has traded his humanity for financial gain. He doesn't give a shit about poor people, of any race.

The clip is not on YouTube but if I find it I will post.

DEI NY Fire Commissioner wants to hunt down firemen who booed Letitia James and cheered Trump

FDNY Commissioner Laura Kavanagh is hunting down smoke-eaters and other staffers who mercilessly booed New York Attorney General Letitia James – and cheered in support of Donald Trump – during a department promotion ceremony this week, The Post has learned.

FDNY Chief of Department John Hodges fired off an email to other agency honchos warning a reckoning led by the department’s Bureau of Investigation and Trials was coming over the chorus of boos and chants of “Trump” that James received at Thursday’s event.

“BITS is investigating this, so they will figure out who the members are,” Hodges wrote FDNY chiefs Saturday in the letter obtained by The Post.

“I recommend they come forward. I have been told by the commissioner it will be better for them if they come forward and we don’t have to hunt them down,” he continued.

A list of talking points for deputy chiefs doing the investigation obtained by The Post said: “We want the members to come forward. They will come to headquarters to be educated why their behavior is unacceptable.”

An FDNY retiree fumed at the department’s heavy-handed response.

“It was a political stunt for the city to have the AG there. When it backfired, they sent their fascist pit bulls after guys for exercising their First Amendment rights,” he said. “Most were off-duty and not in FDNY uniform.”

Famed constitutional and criminal law attorney Alan Dershowitz blasted the FDNY’s hunt down.

“Firefighters have an absolute constitutional right to boo the attorney general, and the government has no power to punish them for it,” Dershowitz told The Post. “So efforts to get the names of the booers is an effort by the government to chill free speech and is unconstitutional.”

The Uniformed Fire Officers Association sent out a message to its members on Saturday warning them of the directive and that the department is in “possession of video footage of the event.”

“As part of this discussion, questions may be asked to specific UFOA members over their actions or their recollections,” the message said.

The union advised members to follow FDNY regulations but to contact the UFOA for legal representation if they feel they are the subject of an investigation.

----------------------

Kavanagh has held senior roles on Presidential, Mayoral, Congressional and local campaigns. She was a Special Assistant to Mayor Bill de Blasio,[4] and during the 2012 United States presidential election, she served as Deputy Director in Pennsylvania on Barack Obama's reelection campaign.[5] She joined the FDNY in 2014, first as Director of External Affairs before her promotion as Assistant Commissioner for External Affairs several months later. In 2015, she was appointed Deputy Commissioner for Government Affairs and Special Programs, became First Deputy Commissioner in 2017 and served as acting Fire Commissioner in February of 2022 after the retirement of Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro.

She has never served as a firefighter.

Lots of Jamie Campbell Bower stuff in it as well, and despite him supposedly being straight, he still pings my 'dar off the charts.

Reddit Personals: "I'm Divorcing My Husband Because of His Farts!"

A wayward chippie on Reddit tells the story of how she fell in love with her now-husband during deep COVID, when she had no sense of smell. She married him, and eventually her sense of smell returned.

Now, she says she cannot stand to share a home with him. He "inhales" junk food and dairy products, both of which exacerbate his gas problem. He loves pizza, greasy burgers, ice cream, etc. He says this is his diet, take it or leave it.

He also says he LOVES the way farts feel exiting his body. He says he's not into ass play, but he gets a little sensual thrill every time his asshole vibrates from a fart. He's becoming fixated on it, to her growing concern.

Will she have any better luck with her next husband?

Charley Horse/Leg Cramp remedies

Got a painful charley horse in the middle of the night.

Have been searching remedies this morning.

I'm going to try this lip pinching (acupressure) technique this guy recommends if it happens again. A lot of people in his comments section are saying it works.

A doctor in another video mentioned quinine as a remedy. Prescription is best but quinine in tonic water will also help. I goggled it and it is no longer a recommended method as it can mask a more serious problem. Then I noticed his video was eleven years old. I'm still going to buy a bottle of tonic water and keep it on my nightstand, the pain last night was excruciating and I'll do the lip pinching AND tonic water if it happens again.

Why Owning Manhattan Is the Most Infuriating Netflix Show of 2024

Owning Manhattan, a Netflix reality TV show, follows real estate agent Ryan Serhant and his colleagues in New York, offering a mix of schadenfreude and unattainable wish fulfillment.

The show's focus on office drama and romantic feuds detracts from its real estate content, making it more infuriating than enjoyable for viewers.

Critics argue that the show's lack of credibility and excessive greed make it an upsetting reminder of the widening wealth gap and the unattainable luxury lifestyle it portrays.

At today's outdoor wedding reception, I learned of a new tradition.

Is it trendy for a new bride and groom to jump into the pool in their fine clothes at their wedding reception? At today’s reception I attended, I was told it was. After the meal was served, the dancing began and the newlyweds “took the plunge” into the pool. Then the whole wedding party jumped in. Guests were told it would be OK if anyone else wanted to join them. About half of the younger people at the wedding dived in as they were. A couple of older adults, too, like the parents of the bride and groom. More and more people abandoned their decorum and followed. I have been told I have a short time to live, and I’ve never gone into a pool fully clothed. I decided I would add it to my bucket list: I have nothing left to lose. I dived in (my first dive in about twenty years) in my shirt and tie, dress pants and good shoes. The water was refreshing and I stayed under for about a minute. It all felt like a ‘seize the day” moment. People were in an especially happy mood, most of the men stayed in the pool for a little while. I only exited the pool when my fingers started to crinkle.

Have you seen this new “tradition”? Have you ever jumped into any pool fully-clothed yourself? I wouldn’t have done it before my diagnosis, but I’ve been freed from a lot of society’s “expectations”.

Barcelona anti-tourism protesters fire water pistols at visitors

Protesters in Barcelona have sprayed visitors with water as part of a demonstration against mass tourism.

Demonstrators marching through areas popular with tourists on Saturday chanted “tourists go home” and squirted them with water pistols, while others carried signs with slogans including “Barcelona is not for sale.”

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of the city in the latest demonstration against mass tourism in Spain, which has seen similar actions in the Canary Islands and Mallorca recently, decrying the impact on living costs and quality of life for local people.

The demonstration was organised by a group of more than 100 local organizations, led by the Assemblea de Barris pel Decreixement Turístic (Neighborhood Assembly for Tourism Degrowth).

According to official figures, almost 26 million visitors made an overnight stay in the Barcelona region in 2023, spending €12.75 billion ($13.8 billion).

However, the Assemblea de Barris pel Decreixement Turístic says that these visitors increase prices and put pressure on public services, while profits from the tourism industry are unfairly distributed and increase social inequality.

It has published 13 proposals to reduce the number of visitors and transition the city to a new model of tourism, including the closure of cruise ship terminals, more regulation of tourist accommodation and an end to public spending on tourism promotion.

On Saturday, the city’s mayor, Jaume Collboni, highlighted a series of measures that he has announced recently to reduce the impact of mass tourism, including increasing the nightly tourist tax to €4 ($4.30) and limiting the number of cruise ship passengers.

At the end of June, Collboni also announced that it would end apartment rentals for tourists by 2028 by scrapping short-term rental licenses for more than 10,000 apartments.

This would help to make housing more affordable for long-term residents, according to Collboni, who said rents had increased 68% in the past 10 years, with the cost of buying a house up 38%.

However, Collboni has been criticized for allowing events such as a Louis Vuitton catwalk show in architect Antoni Gaudí’s Parc Güell in May, as well as the upcoming America’s Cup sailing competition.

The growing discontent in Barcelona echoes similar protests in other parts of Spain.

Shannen Doherty’s Estate: Actress Left Behind $6 Million Malibu Mansion

Shannen Doherty revealed her financial situation in divorce court as she fought her estranged husband, Kurt Iswarienko, for temporary spousal support before her death, In Touch can exclusively reveal.

Shannen passed away on Saturday, July 13, at the age of 53.

Her rep Leslie Sloane said, “It is with a heavy heart that I confirm the passing of actress Shannen Doherty. On Saturday, July 13, she lost her battle with cancer after many years of fighting the disease."

She added, "The devoted daughter, sister, aunt and friend was surrounded by her loved ones as well as her dog, Bowie. The family asks for their privacy at this time so they can grieve in peace." At the time of her death, Shannen was in a bitter battle with Kurt and had yet to settle their contentious divorce battle.

In the divorce, Shannen filed an income and expense declaration weeks before her death.

She revealed that she pulled in an average of $21,000 a month but said this was to decrease dramatically once Charmed was taken off streaming this month.

Shannen said she had $251,000 in the bank and another $1,880,000 in stocks/bond and money from her lawsuit with an insurance company over damage done to her California home. The 90210 actress said she had real property worth $3 million. She said her Malibu home was worth $6 million but she owed $3 million on the mortgage.

Shannen said she had another $134,000 in a pension.

Her monthly expenses totaled $53,000 and included $20,000 for her mortgage, $3,600 in property taxes, $4,000 in maintenance and repair, $1,348 on eating out, $1,446 on laundry and cleaning, $1,600 on clothes and various other expenses. She said she owed $150,000 on an SBA loan and another $170,000 owed to her divorce lawyers.

In the past couple of months, Shannen accused Kurt of refusing to turn over information she needed to review in the case. Specifically, she claimed he had failed to turn over important information about his income and the art he sells.

“During marriage, particularly in the later years of our relationship, Kurt earned several million dollars per year. He has made a name for himself in his industry,” Shannen said.

She added, “Kurt’s average annual earnings for the last three years of marriage was $672,916. My average annual earnings for the last three years of marriage was $259,708.”

“My monthly expenses exceed $54,600. In 2023, my medical expenses alone were $21,640. Because I have not worked this year, I will no longer be eligible for SAG Health Insurance and this number will dramatically increase,” she said.
