AOC facing House ethics investigation after ‘Tax the Rich’ Met Gala freebie

Instagram “was able to purchase access to Representative Ocasio-Cortez that is unavailable to average citizens” by sponsoring a table at the gala.

The second ethics complaint, filed by the National Legal and Policy Center, alleged that the borrowed white Brother Vellies gown worn by AOC — which featured the alleged “Tax The Rich” in red lettering on the back — constituted an impermissible gift because it was “directly related to AOC’s ‘position with the House’ as a highly visible and controversial Member.”

Breaking: Anne He He was NOT High During Fatal Crash

No drugs found in system, per the coroner.

So she slammed into a house at full speed stone sober. Ok....

Anne Heche had no narcotics in her system when she crashed her car into a Los Angeles home in August, sparking a fire that caused her fatal injuries, according to a final toxicology report.

A week after the Aug. 5 crash, TMZ reported that Heche was “under the influence” of cocaine and possibly fentanyl, but not alcohol, citing law enforcement sources. An L.A. police spokesperson told TheWrap at the time that Heche, still clinging to life, was under investigation for felony DUI.

But on Tuesday, the LA County coroner said a final toxicology report showed the presence of benzoylecgonine, an inactive cocaine metabolite that only indicates past use. “Therefore there was no evidence of impairment by illicit substances at the time of the crash,” the coroner said.

A urine toxicology result detected “medications given to her after being treated in the hospital (including fentanyl) and prior use of marijuana, but not at the time of injury.”

The new toxicology report corroborates the account of an LA salon owner, who said the “Six Days, Seven Nights” actress visited his shop just minutes before the crash and seemed sweet and “coherent.”

Heche crashed her Mini Cooper into a an apartment garage earlier that morning, managed to get free as residents tried to help, and then sped away. Moments later she went careening down a residential street at high speed, plowing into a home where the street came to a “T” intersection.

The homeowner narrowly escaped injury. Heche was trapped inside her car for more than 30 minutes while the house burned, then was seen popping up from a gurney after firefighters finally extricated her and were wheeling her into an ambulance. She succumbed to her injuries the following week at age 53.

I'm Done With Kevin Sessums

I just had to mute him on Instagram because I literally cannot take it anymore. Following him used to be funny. I was like, 'What is this absolute clown up to today?' I can't block him because he follows me and consistently likes my posts and I am a "Like Whore." And I'm not the Kevin Sessums troll -- I don't hate him. I just cannot sit by and watch him dive head first into oncoming traffic which is what he's doing in London right now. Sure, he gave up all his responsibilities. He's gloating over the fact that his stanky 6X6 room with a bathroom he shares with a guy named Zeus or whatever like it's a good thing. He lassoes every barista and salesclerk at boutique stores where he can't afford anything into taking a picture with him.

He pulled aside some poor haggard old woman in a museum and told her Lucian Freud would've loved to paint her and then chortled and said, "That's a compliment." There is no place on earth where that is a fucking compliment, Kevin. I'm done. I am not reading any of his Instagram or Facebook posts anymore but if you cunts discuss him here I will likely read what you say because I am only fucking human.

He's in this manic moonshot of a phase that's going to end with him hanging by one arm off the London Wheel screaming, "I NEED TO GET FUCKED RIGHT NOW," and honestly, I want something better for him. I want him to calm the fuck down and apply for section 8 housing in that brutalist old folks home in Hudson. He can go back to wandering around the back alleys getting free day old donuts from the Hudson bakeries and having the local librarians photocopy shit for him. I want better for Sesshie, I really do.

Who actually buys Chanel clothes, bags and perfumes?

I'm not into fashion so never realized designer clothes were this expensive. Are they all like this?

I looked at a website selling Chanel out of curiosity, and everything was outrageously priced. 600 euro for a plain white vest. 3000 euro for a tweed jacket. 1000 euro for a basic black dress you'd see at a cheap department store.

Who buys this stuff? Is it only for the rich and privileged? What income bracket? What age? What attitude/outlook on life buys Chanel?

The clothes in H&M and Marks and Spencers is way cheaper and looks pretty much the same quality.

‘Dune: Part Two’ First Look: Timothée Chalamet Is Back as Paul Atreides

Timothée Chalamet is back (literally) as “Dune” hero Paul Atreides.

Chalamet shared a photo from the “Dune: Part Two” production with his back facing the camera. The actor dons a black hooded long coat that has a skeletal outline on the rear. Production for Denis Villeneuve’s sequel installment of the adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel wrapped in Budapest, Hungary and Italy earlier this year but now continues in the United Arab Emirates.

Per the official synopsis from Warner Bros. and Legendary reads, this follow-up film will explore the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.

Florence Pugh, Souheila Yacoub, Léa Seydoux, Christopher Walken, and Austin Butler join the ensemble cast, with Chalamet, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, and more stars returning.

“It’s like a chess game,” auteur Villeneuve told Empire. “Some new characters will be introduced in the second part, and a decision I made very early on was that this first part would be more about Paul Atreides and the Bene Gesserit, and his experience of being in contact for the first time with a different culture. Second part, there will be much more Harkonnen stuff.”

Chalamet also previously praised co-star Zendaya’s turn as Chani, who is now the lead character for the sequel.

“It’s amazing. She’s bringing exactly what she brought to the first one — which was incredible — but in greater abundance,” Chalamet told Variety of the “Euphoria” Emmy winner. “And she’s really become a sister. I’m so grateful to count her as a partner and a sister and a friend.”

A prequel series is also in the works at HBO Max, helmed by Emmy-winning “Chernobyl” director Johan Renck, who’s set to direct the first two episodes. The show is set 10,000 years before the events of the first “Dune” film and centers on the Harkonnen Sisters as they defend the future of humankind.

“Dune: Part Two” premieres in theaters November 3, 2023.

France's biggest Diva since Piaf, Mireille Mathieu, is finally inching her way out of the closet.

There's no disputing she has a magnificent voice, but I always loathed her. Didn't care for her repertoire, her 'special needs' look or her laughable 'je suis croyante' interviews on French TV . We mocked her as kids.

In recent years there have been rumours that she's gay and of course it makes a bit of sense now because she's never been linked in all these decades to anyone and she's always refused to discuss her private life or her political views in interviews. Until now

In this interview with a gay TV presenter, from Le Figaro she discusses her compassion for the homeless, her support for abortion rights (!), and her support for gay rights (!). My Swiss French husbear says it's killing her, she's going to come out

I think she's been trolling us all these decades.

How to elevate and upgrade your life...

–Get rid of all your old bedding and switch to white. White sheets look good. You also know when they are soiled. You can wash them in hot water with a little bleach. Your linen closet will look better with all white linens. If you live alone or with one other person, you should own three or four sets of sheets plus additional pillow cases.

–Get rid of all your old towels and switch to white. Make sure you have a big stack of white washcloths.

–Get rid of all your old dishtowels and purchase all white kitchen lines (bar mop towels & flour sack towels)

–Remove everything from your kitchen countertops. Nothing says out of control like a kitchen that is cluttered with stuff. Appliances should be put away and should not live on the counter.

–Clean the kitchen sink every night before bed. Scrub it with Ajax or Comet and shine all the hardware.

–Go through your home and do some serious editing. Go room-by-room and make sure that everything that you have out is something you love. Be very intentional about everything that can be seen in your home.

–Clean your refrigerator and freezer – weekly.

–Install rheostats on all your lights.

–Get rid of random glassware and dishes. Matching glassware should be the goal. And why not have a set of all-white dishes?

–Edit your home bar. Get rid of things you no longer drink. Just keep the essentials.

–Purchase some house plants and take care of them. If nothing else, this shows the world that you are able to care for something.

–Well in advance of actually going to bed, prepare your bedroom for sleep each night. Just before dinner, I like to go in the bedroom and make sure the temperature of the room is how I like it. If it's winter, I preheat the bed by turning on my electric mattress pad. If it's summer, I turn on the air conditioner. I put the lights on and dim them. And I turn down the bed and fluff the pillows.

What other suggestions do people have for making one's home life nicer?

Boston Has Voted to Lower the Voting Age to 16

Young teens in Boston may head to the polls very soon.

The Boston City Council recently voted to lower the voting age from 18 to 16. This would make Boston the first major city in the United States to allow 16-year-olds to vote in municipal elections, but state and federal voting restrictions would remain the same.

City Councilor Julia Mejia said this move would help represent the many young people who are already working multiple jobs and making their voices heard by participating in protests.

“The notion that young people may not be mature enough to make decisions like this. . . often times it’s young people who are educating their parents and uncles and aunts and older folks about who’s running for office and why they should vote,” she said.

The proposal will now go to Mayor Michelle Wu before heading to Legislature. Other Massachusetts communities have tried to lower the voting age, but have yet to find any success. Let’s see if this one will make it happen.

Word of early screenings for Babylon is... mixed to put it gently. With a budget of $110 million it is looking increasingly unlikely to break even.

It would make her 4th high profile flop in a row, following Birds of Prey, The Suicide Squad, and Amsterdam.

So what happened? People keep telling me that she's Hollywood's brightest star since Jennifer Lawrence and is already overdue for an Oscar.

Cheryl Lynn appreciation thread

I’m listening to some old school faves today. Cheryl Lynn is a great singer who had several r&b hits between 1978-1989. She got her start by appearing on The Gong Show in 1976! She then went on to appear as The Wicked Witch of The West in a national tour of The Wiz before landing a record deal with Columbia Records. Her first hit was “Got To Be Real”. Her 1983 #1 r&b hit Encore” is my fave.

Title suggestions for Streisand's autobiogrpahy ?

Streisand has been writing her autobiography for nearly a decade and it was expected to come out this year. Hasn't happened yet, so I'm wondering if she's stuck on a title for the book ? Let's help her out and give her suggestions for what could be the title, and something as original as she is. (Please, not riffs on the titles of her songs or movies like "The Way I Am", "A Star Was Born" or "The Funny Girl". They've been played out to death over the years. ).

My Suggestion: "4 /24/42 " (her birthdate)

Caleb McLaughlin recalls racism by 'Stranger Things' fans: 'Why am I the least favorite?'

The 20-year-old actor, who plays Lucas Sinclair on Netflix's teen fantasy drama, recently opened up about experiencing racism while starring on the show.

“My very first Comic-Con, some people didn’t stand in my line because I was Black,” McLaughlin recalled in videos posted by fans on social media. “Some people told me: ‘Oh, I didn’t want to be in line because you were mean to (Millie Bobby Brown’s character) Eleven.’ Even now, some people don’t follow me or don’t support me because I’m Black.”

The SAG-winning actor, who co-stars on “Stranger Things” with Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp and Brown, said it was difficult at first for him to wrap his head around his lukewarm public reception.

“When I was younger, it definitely affected me a lot, because you’re like, ‘Why am I the least favorite? The least amount of followers? I’m on the same show as everybody from Season 1,’ ” McLaughlin said.

He added: “My parents had to be like, ‘It’s a sad truth, but it’s because you’re the Black child on the show.’ Wow, that’s crazy. Because I was born with this beautiful chocolate skin, I’m not loved?”

But McLaughlin said he chooses to shake off the negativity and take the high road instead.

“With my platform, I’m going to spread positivity and love because I’m not giving hate back to people who are giving hate to me,” McLaughlin said.

My eldergay friend has been snatched by a 30 year old illegal Vietnamese grifter

I’m worried about an acquaintance of mine I’ve known for several years. He’s 67 and retired. Somehow he has met this 30 year old guy from Vietnam who seems like a boatload of problems (no pun intended). They recently met and almost immediately, the Vietnamese guy was pressuring my friend into marrying him, buying him a phone and adding a new line to his phone plan, and co-signing a car loan and adding him to his insurance.

He was telling me about everything this Vietnamese guy was asking for and said it made him uneasy. He also said that the guy has a visa but the story seems shady, which is clearly why he wants to get married so quickly, because he’s illegal.

I told my friend to dump this shithead, and he keeps changing his mind, saying he’s going to break it off and then sticking with him. And I finally told him “if you’re too dumb to see that this is going to end very badly, then I can’t help you. After all what 30 year old falls head over heels in love with a 67 year old?” That must be some good pussy to risk financial ruin.

Jennifer Lopez - what is wrong with her?

I've been wondering this for years but forgot about J-Lo until she recently came back into the limelight with all the Ben Affleck stuff. What is her family background? Her actions over the past 20 years point to someone who has experienced severe dysfunction and possibly abuse, yet as far as I know, she maintains that she had a stable family home with parents who didn't divorce until she was well into adulthood. I know her dad is a Scientologist but haven't really heard any details on that at all. It seems very hushed up.

I saw an interview with her talking about Ben and how he's inspired a new album and she just seems so fragile and stunted and emotionally immature. Anyone have any insight?

“This permanent A list model/host has an option on the show she hosts that she hates hosting. She knows the network wants her to just walk away, but she is going to make them pay her entire salary plus some for not showing up.

Tyra Banks/Dancing With The Stars”

A. You could tell she hated being there as much as viewers hated having her there. The only time she looked like she was enjoying herself was during her first season. But last season and this, she looked like she hated being there.

B. Good for her in making them buy her out of her contract. I agree she’s terrible at the job but I also find her to add sass and comedy to it, and a bit of chaos that I found entertaining. She’s tied down in a big contract, so they’re hoping she walks away because they can’t let her go unless they buy her out. They’re trying to avoid having to pay her all those millions, but she’s a smart woman, she isn’t walking away unless they pay up.

I wonder if they’ll buy her out of her contract or just deal with her staying around…

Are we taking wagers on whether the mysterious reality show about the Life and Loves of the Sussexes will at last drop by Netflix on 8 December?

The Christmas appearances by The Family at Sandringham, and the King's first Christmas message

And, Harry's book, equally mysteriously, is suddenly available for free on Amazon . . . what does that even mean? That is, is it money thrown away on PR, or do Netflix really hate the Sussex's guts by now and just want to get rid of them as fast as possible?

Quick back story about me. I was a popular jock in high school and college before coming out to my loved ones. I lost some friends but most have been amazingly supportive, especially my straight guy jock friends who've been there for me more than my family members at times, just as a friendly ear. I've been with my boyfriend off and on since 2020 and his friend group consists of other gay men and straight women. But if you ask him he 'can't stand' straight people especially the men which means my guy friends are enemy #1. He's especially passive aggressive when they visit but I suspect it's jealousy that there are other men in my life besides him. Last night he said he hates my friends and wish I wouldn't hang with them anymore even though they were around before he was but I also love my boyfriend. What would you do?

I had a teacher in grade one who actually used to say I was retarded to anyone who would listen. I remember other kids being bullied by people in their 20s and 30s. It’s messed up looking back as an adult on the way these people acted. I don’t like kids but I’d never treat a kid or even a teenager like that.

***No charges filed in gang rape case involving former Bills punter Matt Araiza***

Former Buffalo Bills and San Diego State University football punter Matt Araiza will not be charged in connection with the alleged gang rape of a minor, the San Diego District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.

Araiza was one of three now-former Aztec football players named in a civil lawsuit. Zavier Leonard and Nowlin “Pa’a” Ewaliko will not be charged either, according to the statement.

The office said sexual assault experts, district attorney prosecutors and investigators all analyzed evidence in the case, which included 35 witnesses, DNA results and 10 search warrants.

“Ultimately, prosecutors determined it is clear the evidence does not support the filing of criminal charges, and there is no path to a potential criminal conviction,” the office said. “Prosecutors can only file charges when they ethically believe they can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt."

The now-18-year old woman alleged that Araiza, then 21, had sex with her in the yard of a house near the San Diego State campus on Oct. 17, 2021. Araiza allegedly then brought her inside the house, where she says she was raped by Araiza, Leonard and Ewaliko.

The lawsuit says the woman, then a minor, immediately reported the alleged rape to friends and then to police the next day. Araiza was never arrested or charged following that complaint, and the allegation wasn’t revealed publicly until the filing of the civil suit in August.

After San Diego police investigated the allegations for nine months, it was not recommended that charges be filed when the case was submitted, the District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.

Araiza set an NCAA record in his senior season with a 51.19-yard punting average, and became known by the nickname “Punt God.” He was selected by Buffalo in the sixth round of the NFL draft and cut within two days of the lawsuit's filing. Leonard was cut by the Aztecs, and Ewaliko left the team weeks later.

Do married men with kids really hate their lives?

I always hear married guys at work saying “don’t get married, don’t have kids.” And they praise me for being single (they don’t know I have a gay male partner) and traveling the world instead of raising a family.

Do these guys really mean what they say? Do they really hate being married and having kids?

The use of "faggot" by people who aren't gay men to describe themselves and each other

Has anyone else seen this happening? I don't think it's a huge thing at the moment, which is probably why I'm noticing it especially, but lately I just keep seeing online people who aren't gay men referring to themselves as "faggots" or talking about their "faggoty behaviour" or something like that. Often, they're straight or gay women.

We've had conversations before about the use of the word "queer" and some of us don't mind it and some of us really do mind it, but this seems somehow more obviously offensive. Or maybe you disagree, I'd be curious to know.

For me I'm just so confused by why they would do that, why they think they can do that, etc. I'm not a huge: "OMG, this is so offensive!" type person, but I do think this is pretty offensive.

I don't think, as I said above, that this is a huge thing happening, or whatever, but was just curious to discuss it, because I don't really have many other gay men around me at the moment I can point this out to and say: "can you believe this shit?"

As an example, here's part of a script from a podcast I came across recently:

Drew: When I think of Christina, I think cis woman.

Christina: Yeah.

Drew: I don’t think big faggot.

Christina: Yeah. No. Thank you. That is, actually, also a large part of my identity is being a gigantic faggot.

and later on:

Christina: Though I am a musical faggot, boy, do I hate Annie?

and:

Gaby: Then I started dating a bi cis guy and that was very freeing. Now, in retrospect, I think being with him, let me feel like a gay guy. Because I had short hair, he was bi, everything we did was very faggoty.

Just... WHAT?

I'm sick of doing things the honest way. Life is too hard and I'm not getting anywhere. It's time for a scam.

Anyone else feel this way? Life is too hard; I don't care if I sound like a whiney moaner for claiming that. Everything I need and want is out of reach. Owning a home, dental treatment, the freedom to pursue a career that doesn't make me suicidal and bored. Everything is too expensive. Unless you become a movie star or a doctor (or any other high-profile career), then you're likely to spend the rest of your life just paying rent and stressing about bills.

I'm sick of people who are born into the right circumstances getting everything handed to them. Inheritance, nepotism connections, emotional support, good looks, good social skills. Yes, I know average people from normal families can get good jobs/scholarships too, but you need to be in a good mental state to motivate yourself to make the most of your education. If you're a teenager/young adult from a bad situation, it's easy to fall between the cracks, just trying to get by day by day. And before you know it, you're almost 40 and still working low-paying jobs--it's harder to go back to college when you're an adult with bills and nobody to support you.

I've nothing against "welfare queens" or "losers on welfare" because they're usually low on self-esteem, come from unsupportive families, didn't make the most of their education, and are trapped in a poverty cycle. Yes, they can get minimum wage jobs, but they're still stuck with debts and poverty, and know they'll still be poor with a job. (Yes, I know poor people can get educated and train for a career, but that's easier said than done--especially once you're stuck in a rut.)

Anyway, I have a job and I hate it. I can't cope doing this for the rest of my life. I'm mid 30s and at this point, I'd rather just become a scam artist, like selling counterfeit goods or organizing a pyramid scheme. I wouldn't steal anybody's life savings or anything that would ruin lives, but I would do something like tricking thousands of people into a giving me 10 dollars a month or something like that.

Bad people are always getting what they want. I don't see the point in being good and honest anymore. I feel like Tony Montana from Scarface when he first came to America--fed up of crappy jobs, and wanting to make money through criminal activities because he was getting no respect as a dishwasher. I don't care if it's wrong. There's no point being the good guy.

Same day termination / layoffs - American phenomenon?

At a large Wall St bank that is currently going thru a not insignificant round of layoffs. As is unfortunately (IMO) the norm at large banks (at least in the US), anyone that got axed basically got called into a conference room where their manager delivered the bad news, and the now-disgraced employee wasn’t permitted to return to their desk. The manager then retrieved their personal items and security escorted them out.

So it got me thinking: putting aside how overall ridiculous and inhumane this is (yes I’m aware of the rationale proffered by employers) - to what extent is this a standard practice in other countries as well? Or is this mostly a US phenomenon?

Man who fell off of a cruise ship survived by treading water for 20 hours, eating bamboo, and fighting off jellyfish

A man who fell off of a cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico after a few drinks shared his story of survival for the first time, describing how he trod water for almost a full day and fought off sea creatures while fading in and out of consciousness.

In an exclusive interview with ABC's "Good Morning America," passenger James Michael Grimes said he had a couple of drinks on the Carnival Valor on November 23, the night before Thanksgiving. He wasn't drunk, he said, but doesn't remember what happened next.

The next 20 hours of his life ended up being a fight for survival, he added.

Grimes shared with ABC that after telling his sister he was going to the bathroom at 11 p.m. local time that night, he regained consciousness in the ocean.

"I came to, and I was in the water with no boat in sight," Grimes told ABC. The cruise was headed from New Orleans to Cozumel, a Mexican island in the Caribbean, traveling through the Gulf of Mexico. For the next almost 20 hours, Grimes described how he trod water and fought for his life, encountering jellyfish and another unidentified sea creature with a fin.

"It came up on me really quick and I went under, and I could see it. And it wasn't a shark, I don't believe," Grimes said. "But it had more like a flat mouth, and it came up and bumped one of my legs, and I kicked it with the other leg. It scared me, not knowing what it was, all I could see was a fin."

As night struck and Grimes awaited rescue, he said that he had to eat objects floating by to sustain his energy, including a plank of bamboo.

"It gave some type of flavor in my mouth other than saltwater," Grimes told ABC. "I was never accepting that this is it — this is going to be the end of my life."

By 8:25 p.m. on Thanksgiving day, a Coast Guard tanker spotted Grimes and rescued him, according to CNN. Grimes did not respond to Insider's request for comment.

In a statement sent to Insider, Carnival said that the only way of falling overboard "is to purposefully climb up and over the safety barriers."

"We greatly appreciate the efforts of all, most especially the US Coast Guard and the mariner who spotted Mr. Grimes in the water," Matt Lupoli, a spokesperson for the company said. "Cruise ships have safety barriers in all public areas that are regulated by US Coast Guard standards that prevent a guest from falling off. No one should ever climb up on the rails. The only way to go overboard is to purposefully climb up and over the safety barriers."

Shant'a Miller White, a passenger who was onboard the ship with her husband and other family members for a Thanksgiving getaway, told Insider that Carnival partially left passengers in the dark regarding the mysterious overboard passenger.

"It was scary because so many people were having different conversations around the boat," Miller White said. "First the rumor was it was a child…then we found out it was an adult."

"We just heard them calling a name over the intercom," she added.

During Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday night, White said passengers were informed that the boat was rerouting to undergo a search and rescue mission.

"When we found out someone had went overboard, or fell, or jumped, or whatever the case may be, I instantly was very nervous and scared," White said. "And didn't know what was going to happen because we didn't have cell service at the time because we were so far out."

The news of Grimes's rescue was eventually crowdsourced, Miller White said.

"I found out that the Coast Guard had rescued him when I received service on my phone and from my family sending screenshots of the news," Miller White said. "I'm grateful and thankful to God that he is alive, but I will say that I don't plan to ever go on Carnival again because I don't feel they were empathetic to the other 3,000 or so people on that boat for all that was going on."

Carnival did not respond to specific questions about Miller White's experience.

I finally get Madonna…

Ok hear me out. Yes I was a major fan and yes I’ve been disillusioned with her recent antics but it just hit me: she is a genius.

If you have never experienced age discrimination then you will have no idea why she is doing what she is doing. You would not get the inspiration and why this is so bold and punk rock.

She is once again ahead of her time and basically the essence of her current form is an expression of fighting back against age discrimination and putting it in the face of everyone and making them see that they are wrong.

She didn’t back down or give in. She is fearless and I’m sure there is someone who can espy all this better but once I felt the sting of going from a twink to a man I was forced to suffer the indignities for which she challenges.

And that was just a taste of what older people go through.

I hope someone can articulate this better for me bit LONG LIVE MADONNA. THE QUEEN OF ROCK AND ROLL.

California's Prison Population Shrinks by 30,000

State officials on Tuesday announced they will begin the process of closing Chuckwalla Valley State Prison in Riverside County and are planning cutbacks at six more prisons, including a women’s facility in Sacramento County.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has set March 2025 as the anticipated closure date of Chuckawalla Valley State Prison in Blythe.

It is the third prison Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration has moved to shut down. The California Correctional Center in Lassen County is expected to close by June. Newsom’s administration also closed the Deuel Vocational Institution in Tracy last year.

The closures are possible because of California’s shrinking state prison inmate population. State prisons last week held about 94,000 incarcerated people, down from about 120,000 in 2019 and about 160,000 in 2011.

Closing prisons saves money. The state this year expects to spend about $18.8 billion on its prison system. California’s Legislative Analyst’s Office earlier this year estimated that shutting five state prisons would save $1.5 billion a year.

But the cuts all have ripple effects on local economies. The City of Susanville sued to block Newsom’s plan to close the Lassen County prison, aiming to protect jobs in the community. A judge in September allowed the plan to go forward, dismissing the lawsuit.

California prison officials will be deactivating certain facilities at Folsom Women’s Facility; in Pelican Bay State Prison; at California Men’s Colony in San Luis Obispo; California Rehabilitation Center in Riverside County; at California Institution for Men in San Bernardino County; and at California Correctional Institution in Kern County, according to a CDCR news release.

The state also plans to get out of a $32 million annual lease with CoreCivic for California City Correctional Facility in Kern County, ending the contract in March 2024. That will effectively end the use of that facility as a state prison.

“California City Correctional Facility is the last contract facility in CDCR. It is a leased facility with our CoreCivic partners since 2013, and was necessary to help address overcrowding in state prisons,” prison officials said in the news release. “Now that the term of the lease is expiring and there is additional space at nearby facilities, it makes sense to transition our staff and population into our state-owned facilities.”

CDCR officials said they carefully evaluated the options for prison closures in accordance with the 2022-23 budget and California Penal Code requirements. They also said they considered the costs to operate facilities, the impact of closure on the surrounding communities and the workforce, housing needs for all populations, long-term investments in state-owned and operated correctional facilities, public safety and rehabilitation and the durability of the state’s solution to prison overcrowding.

“CDCR and the administration are working to minimize impact to staff and the communities,” prison officials said in the news release. “This will include options to transfer both within and outside of impacted counties, and identification of employees for redirection to neighboring prisons where there are existing identified vacancies.”

Amber-Rose Howard, executive director of the prison closure advocacy group Californians United for a Responsible Budget, said it’s important for California to have a “roadmap” for future prison closures that focuses on community investment and is informed by the experiences of people most harmed by incarceration.

“Our community applauds this move toward reversing California’s terrible history of prison expansion,” Howard said in a news release. “We hope yard deactivations are done safely, and that they are an indication of the future prison closures we all know are possible over the next several years.”

Prince Harry Makes Surprise Visit to Pearl Harbor on Veterans Day: 'He Was Very Respectful'

Prince Harry made a surprise stop on Veterans Day.

The Duke of Sussex, 41, visited Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, last Friday afternoon, touring the USS Arizona Memorial, PEOPLE confirms. A somber site in American history books, the battleship was bombed by Japanese forces in December 1941. Over 1,100 crew members died in the attack, which drove the U.S. to enter World War II.

Harry visited the memorial in a personal capacity. The USS Arizona Memorial on the island of Oahu is a short flight from his home in Montecito, California, where he lives with his wife Meghan Markle and their two children, son Archie, 3, and daughter Lilibet, 1.

"He kind of approached us," Dan Conover, who was also touring the USS Arizona with his family on Friday, tells PEOPLE.

"I moved out of his way because he's royalty, I figured I'd let him do his thing. He basically gave me a greeting," Conover, 23, explains. "He was very respectful and courteous and nice. I moved out of his way, and he kind of patted me on the back and said, 'You're all good mate.' It was a simple interaction, but he was very nice and courteous and respectful."

The eyewitness added that there was an expert "who was basically explaining things to Prince Harry — 'This is what happened on this day, how the USS Arizona, etc.' "

The outing was likely emotional for Prince Harry, who served in the British Army for 10 years and completed two tours of Afghanistan. Before stepping back from his senior royal role, he held three honorary military titles — Captain General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington and Commodore-in-Chief, Small Ships and Diving, Royal Naval Command.

November 11 is Veterans Day in the U.S., and Remembrance Day in the U.K. In honor of the solemn holidays, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a new photo and simple statement on their Archewell Foundation website. In the black and white snap, taken by their wedding photographer Chris Allerton, the couple faced military personnel, including a serviceman holding an American flag.

"On this Veterans Day and Remembrance Day, we honor service members across the world," Harry and Meghan, 41, wrote. "These brave men and women, as well as their families, have made tremendous sacrifices and embody duty and service."

"We are proud to work with so many organizations that support veterans and military families, including The Invictus Games Foundation, The Mission Continues, Team Rubicon, Scotty's Little Soldiers and The Greatest GENERATIONS Foundation. Today and every day, thank you for your service," the statement wrapped.

Last year on Veterans Day, the couple paid a surprise visit to a New Jersey military base. At a luncheon for service members and their spouses at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, Meghan and Harry discussed topics like mental health and the importance of community.

Chris Christie's Niece Kicked Off Plane for Accusing Latino Family of 'Smuggling Cocain

Shannon Epstein, the 25-year-old niece of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), was arrested in an extremely dramatic, combative event at Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans on November 24 after being kicked off her plane. The Times-Picayune reports that Epstein had asked a family she perceived to be Latino on her flight if they were “smuggling cocaine.” (The family has not been identified.) When airline workers decided to remove her from the flight and the plane returned to the gate, she became “increasingly irate,” and the incident escalated at the airport.

When deputies tried to arrest Epstein at the airport, she fought back. Per the Times-Picayune:

In the scuffle, she injured six deputies, biting one of the arm and breaking the skin, and kicking another in the groin, Rivarde said. They were treated there by paramedics.

All the while, Epstein shouted that the deputies were going to lose their jobs or end up in jail, boasting that she was related to powerful people and that her uncle is a friend of former President Donald Trump, Rivarde said. Chris Christie did not return messages left Friday at two telephone numbers associated with him.

Seven deputies were needed to handcuff Epstein to a wheelchair, so that she could be moved to the airport security office, Rivarde said. She continued to shout vulgarities and try to bite deputies, he added.

The Christie family is no stranger to criminal scandals. Epstein’s uncle, who ran against Trump in the the 2016 Republican presidential primary before buddying up to him for several years, infamously shut down a New Jersey bridge at rush hour to punish a mayor who refused to endorse his re-election bid.

Epstein was booked with six counts of battery on a police officer, made her $10,750 bail, and was released from the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center on Thanksgiving Day. The case will likely move to federal court.

WHET to Susan Powter ?

Susan Powter was the crazy Aussie dynamo who was all over American TVs in the 80s and 90s begging us to 'Stop the Insanity!' She did exercise videos, diet books, infomericals, a television talk show, and much more that gained her quite a following. She had short blond hair and white pale skin - sort of Tabatha Coffey before Tabatha Coffey graced out screens. She made loads of money, then filed for bankruptcy in the late 90s (I think it was because she owed the IRS so much in taxes).

Last I heard about Powter, she came out as a lesbian in the mid-2000s, after two marriages and two children. Don't know if she still has her diet empire these days.

In the last 6 weeks or so, three different medical providers have suggested putting me on Wellbutrin as part of a smoking cessation plan. It seems weird that all three immediately said Wellbutrin as opposed to other methods i.e. nicotine patches, lozenges etc.

My straight guy jock friends and frat brothers have been there for me more than my family members at times, just as a friendly ear. I've been with my boyfriend off and on since 2020 and his friend group consists progressive queers and fluids and some fag hags. But if you ask him he 'can't stand' straight people especially the men which means my guy friends are enemy #1. He's especially passive aggressive when they visit but I suspect it's jealousy that there are other men in my life besides him. I mean half of them have pumped loads into me.

DL Book Club: 'Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing' by Matthew Perry

I'm midway through. Some things that haven't been widely discussed in the media:

- He started smoking at 10. TEN. Where he got a steady supply of cigarettes at that age isn't addressed.

- His mother was press secretary to former Canadian PM Pierre Trudeau, father of Justin. He played with Justin as a kid and once beat him up.

- He moved to L.A. at 15 to live with his father, John Bennett Perry, who was a working actor and the Old Spice model. His father was a functioning alcoholic who drank at least six vodka drinks a night. When it started to affect him, he just stopped cold turkey. Matthew says something like "Meanwhile, I've spent upwards of $7 million trying to get sober."

- He was impotent through his teen years when other boys were walking hard-ons. His girlfriend Tricia Fisher (sister of Carrie) finally was able to give him a boner and from then on he had sex "with every girl in Southern California."

- When he checked out of a Swiss rehab clinic he had to spend $175,000 on a private jet to get him back to treatment in L.A. Once there he found the L.A. rehab wouldn't give him the same taper-off drugs that he got in Switzerland. So he rented another $175,000 and flew right back.

I'm just getting to the "Friends" years (he skips around a bit).

Pearl Harbor: 80 Years Ago Today

The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service upon the United States against the naval base at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, just before 08:00, on Sunday, December 7, 1941. The attack commenced at 7:48 a.m. Hawaiian Time (18:18 GMT). The base was attacked by 353 Imperial Japanese aircraft (including fighters, level and dive bombers, and torpedo bombers) in two waves, launched from six aircraft carriers. Of the eight U.S. Navy battleships present, all were damaged, with four sunk. All but USS Arizona were later raised, and six were returned to service and went on to fight in the war. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft training ship, and one minelayer. A total of 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded.

Emma Corrin Calls For Gender-Neutral Oscars.

I had a feeling that a call for this might be coming, though it might have more impact coming from Clint, or Meryl, or Denzel. Still, every other category is blind to the sex of its contenders.

I wonder if she's even a member, though now that she has identified as nonbinary it is probably dying to have her to diversify their ranks. Questions, however, remain: 1) Will there then only be two awards -- Lead and Supporting? 2). Will the number of nominees remain at 5 or go to 10 to keep the field at 20 up for awards? 3) How long before a string of white men winning the sole award will further complaints about inclusivity arise? 4) Right now, leading contenders include Brendan Fraser, Colin Farrell, and Cate Blanchett. The whole point is that Tár is absolutely and singularly a woman and that is central to its plot. Perhaps a woman could have been The Whale but a woman could not have been Brendan Gleeson's former best friend the way Farrell is.

Why didn't Jermaine Jackson have a bigger solo career?

He was *perhaps* less charismatic than Michael, but Jermaine's vocal tone was equally good as Michael's--perhaps not as clear and pure, but deeper in feeling and much warmer than Michael's.

His hit solo singles were quite good and catchy, but he never really caught on like Michael, or even Randy.

Was it attitude? I know he was envious of little brother Michael, whose instant charisma was off the charts, but there are plenty of other assholes who become and remain stars. So what's the deal? Plus, he was sexy in a way Mike could never be.

Here he is on "I'll Be There," on second lead vocal. Just stunning and beautiful. It demonstrates the warmth, intimacy and depth I referred to earlier.

‘Avatar 2’- Early Reviews Say It’s a Masterpiece!

Avatar: The Way of Water is finally here, and critics are saying the film is actually, good? Scratch that — they’re saying it’s “masterpiece.”

James Cameron’s long-awaited sequel to the 2009 blockbuster has been met with rave reviews online, much to pretty much everyone’s astonishment. The film continues the story of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and his journey on the planet Pandora, where he must save the Na’vi people from a new forces threatening to destroy their home. The film also stars Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang.

The first reactions to the sequel have been overwhelmingly positive, with many praising the film’s visuals, action sequences and performances. Critics have called the film “visually stunning,” “epic” and “breathtaking,” with some even calling it an “unbelievable masterpiece.”

The film’s special effects have also been praised, with many noting the incredible detail and realism of the CGI. The action sequences have also been praised, with many noting the intense and thrilling fight scenes.

Consider us shocked. Maybe it was worth the wait after all.

He is in his 70s now and seems quite humble for someone who broke down barriers back in the 70s. He walked around the streets of S.F. in skin tight low-rise jeans, with a very visible VPL (before that was a thing like it is now). He was never in the closet and always openly gay, which meant all doors were closed to him, so he had to build his own career.

Redneck Militias Shoot North Carolina Power Station to Kill Power for Drag Queen Story Time

The Moore County Sheriff’s Office says is investigating incidents at multiple electric substations in Moore County that were shot up on Saturday night as a “criminal occurrence,” causing more than half the county’s electric customers to lose power.

A press release from the sheriff’s office said that shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday that, “As utility companies began responding to the different substations, evidence was discovered that indicated that intentional vandalism had occurred at multiple sites.“

”Moore County Sheriff’s Deputies and various other law enforcement agencies within the county responded to the different areas and are providing further site security,” it went on to say

Anyone with any information about this act of violence should contact the Moore County Sheriff’s Office at 910-947-2931.

Workers from Duke Energy and authorities from the sheriff‘s office were at the substation off N.C. 211 near West Pine Middle School looking over the damage around midnight. Deputies were scanning the the area for bullet casings and other evidence, and vehicles were going through the woods in search of more evidence at the scene.

In a text message to a reporter, Chief Mike Cameron of the Southern Pines Fire and Rescue Department confirmed that substations had been shot at. He said the agency is “preparing to be out of power for 24 hours.”

Heavy police presence was around several gun shops and Wal-Mart in Aberdeen around 10:30 p.m. after reports of looting. One woman was detained in front Wal-Mart and police were conducting a headcount of employees outside of the store.

Data from the website poweroutage.us showed that more than 40,600 local electric customers, or about 63.7 percent of the county's customers, were without power was of 10:30 p.m. About 38,000 of those customers are Duke Energy subscribers.

David McNeill, a district representative for Duke Energy, told The Pilot late Saturday that at least two of the company’s substations were vandalized. He said he did not know the extent of the damage or how the vandalism occurred.

The power company first reported outages shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday, starting with more than 2,000 customers without power in areas along the U.S. 15-501 and N.C. 24-27 corridor around and in Carthage.

At 9:42 p.m., emergency scanner traffic reported several explosions heard in Carthage.

I'll start with Chuck Connors for "The Rifleman." He really played a wide range of emotions on that show and delivered a performance I'm sure many wouldn't have expected from an ex-baseball player. (Just check out the episode "The Vision" in which Mark, his only son, had a near-death experience for just one example.) Looking back, it's surprising to find that Connors was never even nominated for his work (though he would receive a nomination years later for "Roots").

‘Groomer’ discourse intensifies and neo-Nazis celebrate in wake of Colorado Springs attack

In the wake of the November 20, 2022, mass shooting that killed 5 and injured dozens at Club Q in Colorado Springs, Colorado, there has been a significant rise in noxious discourse across social media platforms, vilifying LBGTQ+ communities and individuals by labeling them ‘groomers’ and ‘pedophiles.’

This messaging, being echoed and amplified by politicians as well as social media influencers including some affiliated with the far right, is contributing to an atmosphere of suspicion, and in some instances, calls for violence. The attack, and apologetic responses to the attack, has emboldened violent accelerationist neo-Nazi groups, who are celebrating the attacker and linking the incident to mainstream discourse about LGBTQ+ people.

Brendan Fraser as "The Whale." HOLY SHIT!

The Brendan Fraser renaissance (dubbed the Brenaissance) has arrived.

On Tuesday, A24 released a first-look image of the actor in Darren Aronofsky's upcoming drama The Whale. The film is centered on Charlie (Fraser), a reclusive English teacher suffering from a compulsive eating disorder who attempts to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter, Elle (Stranger Things breakout Sadie Sink).

The film is an adaptation of MacArthur-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter's acclaimed 2012 play of the same name and will also star Hong Chau, Samantha Morton, and Ty Simpkins. Aronofsky's first directorial effort since 2017's Mother! starring Jennifer Lawrence, The Whale is set to premiere at the 2022 Venice Film Festival.

"Adapting my play into a screenplay has been a real labor of love for me," Hunter previously told Deadline. "This story is deeply personal, and I'm very thankful it will have the chance to reach a wider audience. I've been a fan of Darren's ever since I saw Requiem for a Dream when I was a college freshman writing my first plays, and I'm so grateful that he's bringing his singular talent and vision to this film."

"It's gonna be like something you haven't seen before," Fraser told Unilad last year of the film. "That's really all I can tell you. The wardrobe and costume was extensive, seamless, cumbersome. This is certainly far removed from anything I've ever done but not to be coy… I do know it's going to make a lasting impression."

Fraser was last seen on Doom Patrol as Cliff Steele (and Cliff's alter-ego Robotman). He also had a supporting role last year in Steven Soderbergh's No Sudden Move, but The Whale will mark the actor's first time back as a leading man since 2013's straight-to-DVD Breakout. And the Brenaissance is just beginning: he also has upcoming roles in Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon and DC's Batgirl as bad guy Garfield Lynns/Firefly.

The Whale does not have a theatrical date yet.

Madison Cawthorn's goodbye speech felt like a GOP parody. The truth is less funny.

Madison Cawthorn's super short goodbye speech perfectly summarized his toxic legacy.

Outgoing Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., hasn’t been showing up to work lately, but he still managed to end his short-lived term with as much controversy as he started it with.

Cawthorn, who lost his re-election primary bid back in May, began his term in 2020 by lying about verifiable facts like owning a business and training for the paralympics. He got married, divorced and was caught trying to get on an airplane with a gun on two separate occasions, at two different airports. A few months before the election, he turned quite a few heads with allegations of coke-filled orgies involving his Senate colleagues.

But the congressman, who once claimed he was “raised on proverbs and pushups,” has seemingly ended his unorthodox congressional tenure by going after what he says is the real threat facing America: “metrosexuals.” In a short speech from the House floor on Nov. 30, the former GOP wunderkind bid his co-workers goodbye with more cliches about manhood than a Miller Lite commercial in the 1990s.

“It used to be a rite of passage in this country for young men to be punched in the face when they did something stupid,” Cawthorn subtly began, seeming to wholly ignore any female colleagues in the room. He said he had to “ask the young men of this nation a question” but went on to ask seven questions instead — seven questions too many, if we’re being honest. “Will you sit behind a screen while the storied tales of your forefathers become myth?” he asked. “Or will you stand resolute against the dying light of America’s golden age? Will you reclaim your masculinity? Will you become a man to be feared? To be respected? To be looked up to? Or will you let this nation’s next generation be its final generation?”

As a woman, I’m not sure the disgraced congressman cares very much what I think about his various burning questions. But as the author of a book about masculinity, I’m going to take a rhetorical stab at them anyway. Because if we actually want our boys to grow up to become good men, a guy who has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, and who was sent a letter signed by 150 of his former college peers corroborating his predatory behavior, shouldn’t the one setting the new rules of modern masculinity.

Cawthorn claims America is on the “precipice of disaster” because “our young men are taught that weakness is strength, that delicacy is desirable, and that being a soft metrosexual is more valuable than training the mind body and soul,” but his vision of manhood is what should really scare us. A man who lies, carries weapons into airports, allegedly mistreats women and believes that other men should be “punched in the face” when they make mistakes does not embody values like liberty and justice for all. Neither women nor men can thrive in an environment that punishes them into submission and forces them to abide by outdated gender norms. Cawthorn’s speech felt like an extreme parody of his own party, filled as it was with extremely dramatic warnings about “sickly” sons controlled by a “nanny state.” But sadly it wasn’t that far removed from some of his conservative colleagues’ sensationalized views about the plight of men.

Supreme Court prepared to rule that businesses can refuse to work with same-sex couples on the basis of religious freedom.

SCOTUS strikes again! Determining that "religious freedom" is more important than human rights or dignity. Just understand that SCOTUS would never rule that "religious freedom" trumps the right to service of any other protected class. That includes a Jew refusing service to a Muslim. This sets the stage for anti-gay sentiment to be protected by religious freedom. And these "religious" people probably don't believe in God, never go to a worship service and lead lives of debauchery.

The LGBTs should be less concerned with the alphabet and more concerned with the forces conspiring against all non-heterosexuals. Conspiracy funded courtesy of flaming gay vampire, Peter Thiel.

The great The Crown miscast

The casting is so bad I wondered someone did it on purpose. The reviews were terrible so i was actually expecting something awful, but it is as good as before, only with awful casting:

Imelda Stanton: as someone said in another thread , she could’ve played the queen mother. Or the queen’s maid. She is terribly wrong in this. Hellen Mirren should’ve played her.

Jonathan Pryce: another great actor, but so wrong as well. Charles Dance should’ve been cast.

Lesley Manville: here they aren’t even trying anymore. I like Lesley but she looks or acts nothing like Margaret. She looks better and more elegant that the old manicurist.

The Queen Mother: they are using a balding, thin, chav. This is pure trolling.

Dominic West: looks or acts nothing like Charles. But in this case i have no alternative suggestions….

The one that is good is Diana. Has the voice and posture down to pat. Very good acting.

John Leguizamo wasn’t a fan of “white” Al Pacino and playing a Puerto Rican in ‘Carlito’s Way’

Twenty-nine years after getting his big break playing Benny Blanco from the Bronx in Brian De Palma's "Carlito's Way," John Leguizamo still can't get over the "odd experience" of watching Al Pacino in the lead role playing a Puerto Rican.

The movie is based on the 1975 crime novel by Puerto Rican author Torres that follows Pacino's character, Carlito Brigante, a gangster who's released from prison and decides to go straight.

But trying to make money to escape New York City and head down to Florida to live out the rest of his days leads him back to the underworld, where he crosses paths with up-and-comer Benny Blanco (Leguizamo). The two clash, leading to Blanco killing Brigante at the end of the movie.

The role launched Colombia-born Leguizamo up the ranks in Hollywood as he held his own across from the legendary Pacino. But looking back on the experience now, he admits seeing Pacino, who's Italian, trying to be Latin was strange.

"I know he's trying and he's a great actor, so brilliant, he was my hero," Leguizamo told Insider. "But it was odd, man."

"It's an odd experience to be a Latin man in a Latin story written by a Latin man and the lead guy's a white guy pretending to be Puerto Rican," he continued. "I'm not going to lie, it's surreal. It was surreal. I turned the part down a few times and then eventually I decided to do it."

Leguizamo added that "it was a thing of the times." Before "Carlito's Way" Pacino memorably played a Cuban in De Palma's 1983 movie "Scarface."

Things have clearly changed 30 years later, but the actor admits even today he doesn't know if "Carlito's Way" could be made.

"They might not make the movie because you have an all-Latin cast. That's the problem. That's why 'Encanto' is crazy because it was the number one movie in the world, what more proof do you need?" Leguizamo said, noting the Disney hit in which he played the Bruno character. "I'm not seeing the greenlights of those projects. Greenlight the goddamn things."

Leguizamo recently voiced his frustration with the lack of Latin stories being told by Hollywood when he wrote an open letter on the topic in the Los Angeles Times in November.

"'Encanto' being No. 1, Bad Bunny being No. 1 in the world, and election-wise, we have won so many seats as Latin people," he told Insider. "If you get the middle man out of the way we win all the time, but when we have to rely on a studio head's opinion or taste it's when we lose because they don't look like us, they don't get our story, and they won't put us on. I don't understand that."

Leguizamo can be seen in the new movie "Violent Night," which is in theaters now.

DL Doctors and Nurses: a question about how fast cancer can overcome someone

In light of Kirstie Alley's death, I was wondering if cancer that advanced would show any abnormal results in routine bloodwork of an unsuspecting patient who had regular (every 6-12 months) checkups.

I saw today that they're saying she had colon cancer, so of course timely colonoscopies are important-- but say she didn't have colonoscopy but still kept regular physicals and bloodwork -- would an advanced cancer not show any signs in any of this?

I have some health anxiety and when I hear of people dying within weeks of discovering they had cancer, I always wonder these things.

Thanks, and apologies for being leas-than articulate right now -- I need to be asleep but I'm wondering about this.

If There Is a 'Male Malaise' With Work, Could One Answer Be at Sea?

SEATTLE — Before dawn on a recent day in the port of Seattle, dense autumn fog hugged Puget Sound and ship-to-shore container cranes hovered over the docks like industrial sentinels. Under the dim glimmer of orange floodlights, the crew of the tugboat Millennium Falcon fired up the engines for a long day of towing oil barges and refueling a variety of large vessels, like container ships.

The first thing to know about barges is that they don’t move themselves. They are propelled and guided by tugs like the Falcon, which is owned by Centerline Logistics, one of the largest U.S. transporters of marine petroleum. Such companies may not be household names, but the nation’s energy supply chain would have broken under the pandemic’s pressure without the steady presence of their fleets — and their crews.

“We’re a floating gas station,” said Bowman Harvey, a director of operations at Centerline, as he stood aboard the Falcon, his neck tattoo of the Statue of Liberty pivoting from the base of his flannel whenever he gestured at a machine or busy colleague nearby. Demand is solid, he said, and the enterprise is profitable. The company’s client list, which includes Exxon Mobil and Maersk, the global shipping giant, is robust. But manning the fleet has become a struggle.

Multiyear charter contracts for key lines of business — refueling ships, transporting fuel for refineries and general towing jobs — are locked in across all three coasts, plus Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico, Harvey said. Yet as pandemic-related staffing shortages have eased in other industries, Centerline is still short on staff.

“Hands down,” Harvey said, “our biggest challenge right now is finding crew.”

Safely moving, loading and unloading oil at sea requires both simple and highly skilled jobs that cannot be automated. And the labor supply issues in merchant marine transportation are emblematic of the conundrum seen in a variety of decently paying, male-heavy jobs in the trades.

Over the past 50 years, male labor force participation, the share of men working or actively looking for work, has steadily fallen as female participation has climbed.

Some scholars have a grim explanation for the trend. Nicholas Eberstadt, the conservative-leaning author of “Men Without Work,” argues that there has been a swell in men who are “inert, written off or discounted by society and, perhaps, all too often, even by themselves.” Others, like Brookings Institution senior fellow Richard V. Reeves, put less emphasis on potential social pathologies but say a “male malaise” is hampering households and the economy.

Centerline employees are among about 75,000 categorized by the Department of Labor as water transportation workers, a group in which men outnumber women 5-to-1.

Though the gender split in the industry is more even for onshore office roles, workers and applicants for jobs on the water are predominantly male. Centerline says it has roughly 220 offshore crew members and about 35 openings.

Captains and company managers agree that changing attitudes toward work among young men play a part in the labor shortage. But the strongest consensus opinion is that structural demographic shifts are against them.

“We’re seeing a gray wave of retirement,” Harvey, 38, said.

Even though replacements are needed and, on the whole, lacking, there are new young recruits who are thriving, such as Noah Herrera Johnson, 19, who has joined Centerline as a cadet deckhand, an entry-level role.

On a Thursday morning out in the harbor, Herrera Johnson deftly unknotted, flipped and refastened a series of sailing knots as the crew unmoored from a sister boat that was aiding the refueling of a Norwegian Cruise Line ship. A small crowd of curious cruise passengers peeked down as he bopped through the sequences and the sun’s glare began to pierce the fog, bouncing off the undulating waves.

“I enjoy it a lot,” Herrera Johnson said of his work as he sliced some meat in the galley later on. (Some kitchen work and cleaning are part of the gig and the fraternal ritual of paying dues.)

Two volcanoes erupt simultaneously in Hawaii for first time in decades

Two of Hawaii's largest volcanoes are erupting simultaneously.

Hawaii's Mauna Loa, the world's largest active volcano, erupted for the first time in decades on Sunday night. Nearby, Kilauea is also erupting — both on the archipelago's Big Island.

Dual eruptions haven't been seen since 1984.

"This is a rare time where we have two eruptions happening simultaneously," Jessica Ferracane, a spokesperson for Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, told CBS News. "To the people of Hawaii, this is a very sacred event that we are watching."

The Kilauea volcano, which is smaller and more active than Mauna Loa, had been erupting since 1983, and in 2018, its lava flows destroyed hundreds of homes on the island. Recently, its eruption activity has been confined to the crater, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Scientists say two new lava flows formed Tuesday on Mauna Loa, which last erupted in 1984. The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (EMA) said Wednesday afternoon that there is "still no immediate threat to populated areas" from the Mauna Loa eruption. According to the EMA, the lava was about 3.5 miles from Saddle Road, which connects the east and west sides of the island.

Ken Hon, scientist-in-charge at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said experts are monitoring the lava's movement.

"It could just as easily shift and start another flow as well and we'll just watch it very, very carefully. We are thinking very, very, much about advances," Hon said.

Ash and sulfur dioxide from the eruption could negatively affect air quality across the state, the state health department said.

The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park remains open but visitors are urged to check the park website for closure updates, safety alerts, air quality and other information.

Hackers linked to Chinese government stole millions in Covid benefits

Hackers linked to the Chinese government stole at least $20 million in U.S. Covid relief benefits, including Small Business Administration loans and unemployment insurance funds in over a dozen states, according to the Secret Service.

The theft of taxpayer funds by the Chengdu-based hacking group known as APT41 is the first instance of pandemic fraud tied to foreign, state-sponsored cybercriminals that the U.S. government has acknowledged publicly, but may just be the tip of the iceberg, according to U.S. law enforcement officials and cybersecurity experts.

The officials and experts, most speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject matter, say other federal investigations of pandemic fraud also seem to point back to foreign state-affiliated hackers.

“It would be crazy to think this group didn’t target all 50 states,” said Roy Dotson, national pandemic fraud recovery coordinator for the Secret Service, who also acts as a liaison to other federal agencies probing Covid fraud.

The Secret Service declined to confirm the scope of other investigations, saying there are more than 1,000 ongoing investigations involving transnational and domestic criminal actors defrauding public benefits programs, and APT41 is “a notable player.”

And whether the Chinese government directed APT41 to loot U.S. taxpayer funds or simply looked the other way, multiple current and former U.S. officials say, the theft itself is a troubling development that raises the stakes. One senior Justice Department official called it “dangerous” and said it had serious national security implications.

“I’ve never seen them target government money before,” said John Hultquist, the head of intelligence analysis at the cybersecurity firm Mandiant. “That would be an escalation.”

The Chinese Embassy in Washington did not respond to requests for comment.

As soon as state governments began disbursing Covid unemployment funds in 2020, cybercriminals began to siphon off a significant percentage.

The Labor Department Office of Inspector General has reported an improper payment rate of roughly 20% for the $872.5 billion in federal pandemic unemployment funds, though the true cost of the fraud is likely higher, administration officials from multiple agencies say.

In-depth analysis of four states showed 42.4% of pandemic benefits were paid improperly in the first six months, the department’s watchdog reported to Congress last week.

A Heritage Foundation analysis of Labor Department data estimated excess unemployment benefits payments of more than $350 billion from April 2020 to May 2021.

“Whether it’s 350, 400 or 500 billion, at this point, the horse is out of the barn,” said Linda Miller, the former deputy executive director of the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee, the federal government’s Covid relief fraud watchdog.

By the time Covid relief funds appeared as a target of opportunity in 2020, APT41, which emerged more than a decade ago, had already become the “workhorse” of cyberespionage operations that benefit the Chinese government, according to cyber experts and current and former officials from multiple agencies. The Secret Service said in a statement that it considers APT41 a “Chinese state-sponsored, cyberthreat group that is highly adept at conducting espionage missions and financial crimes for personal gain.”

Ambassador Nathaniel Fick, the head of the State Department’s Bureau of Cyberspace and Digital Policy, said cyberespionage is a long-time Chinese national priority aimed at strengthening its geopolitical position.

“The United States is target No. 1, because we are competitor No. 1,” Fick told NBC News. “It’s a really comprehensive, multi-decade, well-considered, well-resourced, well-planned, well-executed strategy.”

American officials have blamed Chinese hackers for the Office of Personnel Management, the Anthem Health and the Equifax breaches, among others.

Betty White and Bob Barker - Frenemies to the End?

Here's an old feud that's classic DL catnip. Betty White and Bob Barker, both prominent animal rights activists, apparently had a few rocky feuds over the years of their semi-friendship. The most public of these involved an elephant enclosure at the Los Angeles Zoo.

Betty believed zoos were essential to promoting conservation and education on wildlife issues. She supported the Zoo's plan to expand the elephant habitat.

Bob Barker believed zoos were abusive and should be closed, and he opposed the Zoo's plans.

This feud severed the friendship, according to this dated article from your grandma's favorite source of "real news."

Does anyone have any other information about their relationship over the decades? What's the world of chummy celebrities who love animals (call it "Bestie Bestiality") really like?

Supreme Court leans toward web designer over refusal to work on same-sex weddings

So what's the point of state nondiscrimination laws? One can always scream "Jesus made me discriminate!!!"

Conservative Supreme Court justices on Monday appeared sympathetic toward an evangelical Christian web designer’s bid to avoid working on same-sex weddings as they weighed the latest clash between religious conservatives and LGBTQ rights.

But after two-and-a-half hours of arguments that included a broad array of tough hypothetical questions directed at both sides, it is unclear how exactly the court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority, will rule.

Lorie Smith, who opposes same-sex marriage on religious grounds and runs a business in Colorado designing websites, is seeking an exemption from a state law that outlaws discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in public accommodations.

Smith sued the state in 2016 because she said she would like to accept customers planning opposite-sex weddings but reject requests made by same-sex couples wanting the same service. She argues that, as a creative professional, she has a free speech right under the Constitution’s First Amendment to refuse to undertake work that conflicts with her own views.

Civil rights groups say Smith is asking the conservative-majority court for a “license to discriminate” that would gut public accommodation laws that require businesses to serve all customers.

Justices in the conservative majority seemed generally supportive of the notion that Smith should not be forced to express sentiments to which she disagrees, with Justice Clarence Thomas noting that policing speech was not how public accommodations laws like Colorado's were traditionally applied.

"This is is not a hotel. This is not a restaurant. This is not a riverboat or a train," he said, referring to businesses required to service all customers. Other conservative justices, including Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, asked similar questions.

[Quote] Many of the same libraries that won't give Cameron a slot, however, are actively offering "drag queen" story hours or similar programs for kids and young people, according to Cameron's book publisher and according to a review of the libraries' websites and current program listings.

"lady chatterley's lover" (2022, netflix)

any1 watched?

+ pluses:

i am super glad they did not do woke casting, would have ruined the immersion

the scene transition & the love story are more fluid than the 1981 version

- minuses:

the gamemaster was no bodacious nicholas clay 4 sure

dialogues & demeanor r rather modern, lacking the grace & social context of the 1981 version

the movie painted the disabled husband as the villain, so the movie comes off strangely cruel toward disabled ppl since it tried 2 b woke, modern, & 2022

very feminist, yet the girl was made 2 exposed more w/ more nude scene

also, somehow, it is showing the girl being bored of men talking about politics & econ, it is rather anti-feminist and made her looks stupid

finally, the movie shown the girl taking care of her post-war disabled husband & it seems like so much of a burden, that her sister screamed 4 the husband 2 get his own personal caregiver. The wedding vow includes in sickness & in health 4 a reason ladies. In the 1981 version, lady chatterley was by the husband's side 2 take care of him without grievance, and only tagged a nurse in when the husband got worse. There was more realistic tenderness between the chatterley couple in 1981.

Duchess of Sussex signs off final podcast with pointed quote: 'What didn't you do to bury me?'

“What didn’t you do to bury me?,” the Duchess of Sussex has asked as she signed off the final episode of her podcast series with a pointed quote.

She finished the twelfth episode of her Spotify podcast, Archetypes, by reading out the quote by Greek poet Dinos Christianopoulos: “What didn’t you do to bury me? But you forgot that I was a seed.”

It brings an end to her series, during which she has interviewed dozens of guests about the archetypes - or “limiting beliefs'” - that women hold, saying she has “learned so much about them and also myself”.

The Duchess concluded the episode by saying: “I feel seen, I had never considered that in using my voice, that I would feel seen, but I do.

“Many moons ago I heard a quote that I will share with you today because as we talk about labels, tropes and boxes that some may try to squeeze you into and roles and stereotypes that are attributed to you that don't quite fit the full person that you are, this [quote] is what I wanted to leave you with.”

She added: “To that point my friend, keep growing and I’ll see you on the flip side. As ever, I’m Meghan.”

Meanwhile, she also revealed that Prince Harry advised her men should appear on the last episode of the Archetypes podcast to “broaden the conversation” about gender.

Until now, her Spotify podcast has exclusively featured interviews with women, something she said was “by design” so that women could be “heard and understood”.

However, she admitted that “at the suggestion of my husband,” the conversation and effort had to “actively include men” to challenge the “labels, tropes and limiting beliefs” that women hold.

Meghan invited Trevor Noah, Andy Cohen and Judd Appatow to feature on the final episode of the series, calling them “thoughtful men” who are behind “some of the most successful movies and TV shows”.

She said: “Until now, outside of a quick pop-in from my husband in the first episode, this show has featured exclusively women’s voices - and that’s by design.

“It’s important to us that women have space to share their authentic, complicated, complex and dynamic experiences…But through that process it also occurred to me, and truth be told at the suggestion of my husband, that if you really want to shift how we think about gender…that we had to broaden the conversation and we have to actively include men in that conversation and certainly in that effort.”

The Duchess added that to tackle the archetypes - or “limiting beliefs” - she has discussed in the series, that “it has to be larger than just conversations with women”.

“I thought for this final episode, wouldn’t it be interesting to sit with some men, hear their thoughts, and see what they think of Archetypes.”

Speaking to Andy Cohen, the American TV host and executive producer of Bravo's late night talk show Watch What Happens Live, the Duchess revealed that while filming Suits, she had asked to be on his show but was turned down.

“I was such a huge fan and…I was so eager to be on your show because I was such a [Real] Housewives fan at the time, and I just couldn’t get booked, Andy. So thanks for being here with me,” she told him.

Cohen responded he “had that feeling,” saying: “Oh my god, if it turns out that Meghan Markle actually expressed an interest to be on Watch What Happens Live - it is now the biggest blunder in 13 years of the show.”

She then said she “didn’t want to embarrass him” by bringing the incident up, but “thought it was funny to try to remember how things were”.

“Though I couldn’t at the time get on the couch to talk to Andy on his late night show - I was certainly well aware of his other big creation. The Real Housewives franchise,” she added.

Cohen asked: “The million dollar question is do you still watch the Housewives?”

The Duchess said that she “stopped watching the Housewives when my life had its own level of drama that I stopped craving [other peoples’]”.

DELIBERATE CRUELTY by Roseanne Montillo takes a fresh look at Truman Capote's viscous and savage attacks on Ann Woodward (who was accused but acquitted of murdering her husband Billy Woodward.

Ann Woodward struggled to live down her infamy, spending much of her time in Europe in self imposed exile from NY and other American society that shunned her like the plague. But in 1975 Truman Capote was set to release a new book rehashing the Billy Woodward murder all over again. When Ann Woodward found out about this she soon took her own life.

Man who jumped to death at Disneyland was principal accused of child endangerment

The man's last Facebook post is sad (see link below)

A man who jumped to his death at Disneyland was a school principal due in court Monday on child endangerment and battery charges — which he blasted in a social-media suicide note.

The jumper was identified by authorities as Christopher Christensen, 51, who had been the principal of Huntington Beach elementary schools for 22 years, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.

Court records show that he was due in court for a pre-trial conference hearing Monday for the two misdemeanor charges — which he directly blamed for his suicide in a lengthy Facebook post just before he leaped from the Mickey & Friends parking garage.

“I hate when people leave this Earth with so many unanswered questions. So, I hope this provides some insight and perspective,” the proud one-time “administrator of the year” told his Facebook friends in a calm tone.

Kate Middleton Announces a Christmas Special on the Same Day the Sussexes' Netflix Doc Drops

Today in Everything in the Royal Family Continues to Be Incredibly Awkward™, Volume II of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's new docuseries is dropping on the exact same day as Kate Middleton's Christmas carol special.

The palace just revealed that Kate Middleton is joining King Charles for Royal Carols: Together At Christmas at Westminster Abbey, an event that is going down on December 15—when Volume II of Harry & Meghan airs.

[quote] "This year's carol service is dedicated to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the values Her Majesty demonstrated throughout her life, including duty, empathy, faith, service, kindness, compassion and support for others," the palace said in a press release. "These principles are shared and personified by the inspirational guests who have been invited to the Abbey in recognition of their tireless work to help and care for those around them."

Truly unwell at this timing. As we know, the royals are in a state of meltdown over the Sussexes' forthcoming Netflix docuseries, though the palace's plan at the moment is pretty much to pretend it doesn't exist.

“It’s likely going to be tricky but the intention is to keep heads down and keep going,” a royal source tells Vanity Fair. “It’s a tried and tested strategy and has served them well in the past. William is letting his work speak for itself as we saw in Boston and the King has a busy program of events. The message from the palace will be duty.”

That said, Prince William "could be more inclined to speak out particularly if he feels he has to defend himself or the family over something serious like racism,” so things could change depending on what Harry and Meghan discuss in the docuseries.

Reminder: Volume I of Harry & Meghan drops on December 8, so prepare your life accordingly.

Calling all Medical and Experienced Dataloungers for your help... Possible Food Contamination that led to a death

This is my story.

My father in law died today from an intestinal rupture. Last week he had eaten something that made him sick. He went to the doctor and they didn't test him, didn't know what it was. We thought it was food poisoning possibly from leftover Thanksgiving Day food. His symptoms worsened but he was 79 and stubborn and kept saying if it didn't clear up he would go to the doctor. The symptoms worsened quickly - diarrhea, vomiting, stomach bloating, fatigue, pain, weakness. He kept hydrated but things worsened to the point he got so sick last night that he died from an intestinal rupture. He was a relatively healthy man for his age, low blood pleasure, no diseases, physical maladies.

In this time we know that he also ate blackberries from Aldis. It was the only thing he ate that my mother-in-law didn't eat. They have already embalmed him without doing an autopsy which my husband was pushing his mother for. But we still have the blackberries. Is there a way still to see if the blackberries were contaminated? Who do you turn to to even test? Is it too late to see if that is what he died from? I don't even know where to begin or who to ask. Do you file a police report if you suspect something like this might be the cause?

All I have been doing is googling and dealing with trying to get my husband back home to PA tomorrow. Does anyone have experience with this? Please help. And I know DL can be a witty, catty place. I come here for that sometimes. But right now I ask for a little compassion and that people please refrain.

Hallmark Channel explains Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar departure to GAC Family

Hallmark is confidently looking ahead at its future without Candace Cameron Bure, Danica McKellar and others who left for GAC Family.

Best known for starring in Hallmark's Aurora Teagarden Mysteries franchise and annual Christmas movies, Candace exited the network in April. She appeared to follow in the footsteps of her co-star Danica who departed in October 2021. Fellow Hallmark leads like Jessica Lowndes, Trevor Donovan and Jen Lilley have also left for GAC throughout the past year. But according to Hallmark executives, the company isn’t sweating over it.

During a Television Critics Association press conference on Wednesday, Hallmark executive Lisa Hamilton Daly gave insight about their roster changing.

“We’ve kept a lot of our talent under options, save for Christmas movies. We’re looking for new talent all the time,” she said at the event, according to Variety. “I think there’s a lot of talent out there that we’ve worked with in the past that GAC is now working with.”

Lisa continued: “I think that we also are constantly trying to evolve the talent pool that we’re working with. We have, I think, retained almost everybody that we’re really excited to have. So that’s where we are.”

Hallmark President and CEO Wonya Lucas emphasized that the channel’s talent is also special because of their friendships, which remain intact after recent departures.

“Our talent, they know each other. They have a great relationship and that’s the secret sauce we have as Hallmark,” she said. “That continues today. We have existing talent that’s been with us a long time, and we have a new talent that we’re bringing in as well. And they all feel part of this Hallmark Channel love and so that that will be consistent; that is consistent in the past; that’s consistent today.”

Both Candace and Danica are set to star in and be executive producers for GAC Family and GAC Living content. Apart from acting, the Full House cast member will also help oversee and curate programming, plus create year-round seasonal TV shows and films.

That said, Danica signed a contract through 2023, which means she could return to Hallmark. But Candace seems to be all in with no end date in her involvement with GAC and no future appearances planned in the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries franchise, per Deadline.

should america abolish school summer vacation?

it is such an old timey tradition thing, in which most kids had farmer parents and they were needed 2 harvest the field

it is no longer the case

most households have the mother working, so summer is a huge childcare issue 4 them

this also solves so many problems:

- we could have more times 4 kids 2 learn life skill, like tax, plumbing, cooking, nutrition

- ppl would respect teachers more, since they actually work yr round

- keep kids off the street, off the gang, which would boost public safety

- more time 2 do lessons, since american public school system actually is inferior to the global standard

Pop singer Mabel Matiz gets censored at GQ Turkey event

Famous pop singer Mabel Matiz has announced that he was invited to the GQ Turkey’s Men Of The Year event to present an award but then was not invited to the stage. “I learned that they gave up on me” because of his censored music video describing the love between two men.

Famous pop singer Mabel Matiz on Dec. 02 announced that he was not invited to the stage at the GQ Turkey’s Men of The Year event, which took place on late Dec. 01, as promised before due to one of his music videos that describes the love between two men.

“I learned firsthand that the GQ Turkey staff discussed this all day long and gave up on me on the last day due to my (censored) music video. Unfortunately, I wasn't even given the courtesy to be notified about the change,” Matiz said in a statement he shared on Twitter.

Matiz’s song named "Karakol" (The Police Station) was launched on the last day of the Pride Month and a few days after police used force against Pride March supporters in Istanbul. However, the song's music video was immediately banned from being broadcast on TV channels by the Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK) in July.

Matiz said GQ Turkey offered him to present an award at the event about one month ago.

“This is not the first time (something like this happening). Whether or not to present an award is not an issue. However, I still wanted to share this rudeness and discrimination against me, and present it to the public, on a night full of sponsors, where its main theme is 'Co-exist',” he added.

“I find both the censorship (of GQ) itself and the huge miscommunication extremely wrong and unkind. In our conversations with (some other) GQ Turkey staff, they said that of course there would be no such censorship, and that it was just an 'organizational mistake',” Matiz further said.

In response, GQ Turkey said it was just an “organizational mistake.”

“We would like to apologize for upsetting Dear Mabel Matiz, who revealed our organizational mistake, although it was not our intention as stated. We understand Mabel who always inspires us, we share the dream of a beautiful and bright future together,” the statement said.

37-year-old singer, who uses mysticism, folk poetry, and modern synth-pop in his songs, is a vocal support of LGBTQI+ rights. He occasionally became the target of LGBTI+ opponents on social media due to his stance.

Princess Diana’s Butler Paul Burrell Wants Harry & Meghan STRIPPED OF THEIR TITLE!

Princess Diana’s butler Paul Burrell is speaking out about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they touch down in NYC.

The couple landed in the Big Apple on December 6, just days ahead of the release of their docuseries “Harry & Meghan.” See the pics here.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were spotted exiting their private plane at JFK as they were greeted by friends on the tarmac. Harry wore a white button-down shirt for the trip, while Meghan wore a black dress and sunglasses.

The first three episodes of their explosive doc are set to drop December 8, and trailers for the series suggest the couple plans to lift the veil on the royal family.

Burrell is among those upset by doc and the couple’s commercial endeavors, speaking out on “Piers Morgan Uncensored” to say Diana would not support Harry’s actions.

Piers asked Paul what he would do if he was King Charles and these people were trying to “ruin everything you represent?”

Burrell answers, “You take away the titles, I agree with you… They don’t want to be members of the royal family, so why should they trade on royal titles?”

He later called their actions "all smacks of self-obsessed narcissism to me.”

Burrell insisted he’s always been supportive of Harry, but he has crossed a line.

“Harry decided to take this path to America, he decided to do what he did for the right reasons to protect his family, I thought… Diana would have applauded that… She would not have applauded what he is doing now. The commercialism around it. She never took a cent, never took a penny.”

Paul added, “She was a great supporter of the monarchy. She said to me, ‘I long to hug my mother-in-law… I know what goes on inside her head.' She was very proud of her boys being members of the royal family. She always thought it was Harry’s job to be William’s wingman, to be there for him on his path to monarchy.”

Piers, who has been highly critical of Harry and Meghan, sounded-off himself in another portion of the show.

He called their choice to release trailers for the doc during Prince William and Kate Middleton’s trip to the United States last week “unforgivable” and yet “unsurprising.”

Morgan also slammed Harry and Meghan, saying, "They’re just whining millennial windbags with a victim complex."

The Harry and Meghan sighting in NYC comes days before their explosive series is due to drop on Netflix and shed light on the royal family.

In the most recent trailer for the doc, Harry suggests, “There's a hierarchy of the family. You know, there's leaking, but there's also planting of stories.”

A woman then states, “There was a war against Meghan to suit other people's agendas,” before it cuts to a man saying, “It's about hatred. It's about race,” and then Prince Harry insisting, “It’s a dirty game.”

The Prince goes on to share his fears for Meghan after what his late mother Princess Diana went through. As videos of Diana and old headlines fill the screen, Harry says, “The pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution, this feeding frenzy…”

Meghan is then heard saying, “I realized, they’re never going to protect you.”

Nude Cruise Ship Passenger Fell Off Ship and Swam with Sharks for 20 Hours 🦈 🏊🏻‍♂️ 🛳

It was a Thanksgiving to remember for a local State Farm worker on a Carnival cruise. After downing a few cock tales with co-worker Jake, the man who fell off a Carnival ocean liner and treaded water for 20 hours before being rescued literally swam with sharks and miraculously survived, but there's one big mystery -- how many drinks did this dude consume before going overboard?!?

The 28-year-old told a family member he was going to the bathroom, and that's the last anyone saw of him. He doesn't remember going to the bathroom, falling off the ship or hitting the water.

The first thing he recalls is that he was on the ocean floor with no boat in sight. He was actually passed out in the water after the fall. Unreal! But God kept him afloat for a bigger purpose. He was cold and hungry and survived by eating whatever floated by.

James was treading water in an area known as a feeding ground for sharks, and it appears he encountered at least one. You gotta watch the video and hear how he survived that.

Eventually, he saw a freighter and swam with the little energy had left ... heading toward the vessel. When a Coast Guard chopper lifted him out the water, the first thing he did was warn one of the military guys he was naked!

I watched this on Amazon Prime last night and thought of DL!

A fat high school girl discovers she can cast spells and makes one of her tormentors fall from a rope climb in the gym, breaking her neck. From there she attempts to eliminate her mousy father and goody-goody younger sister (Helen Hunt!). You'll be Team Fat Girl too.

But it's mostly Lee Grant's movie as the mother. Never a hair out of place, she agonizes over her family's plight (often while smoking in bed in big false eyelashes). The 1970s decor is way over the top, and the movie is only 70 minutes.

Senior Member of King Charles' Team Resigns Following Racism Allegations at Palace Event

One of King Charles III's top team members at the palace has resigned after claims of racism were made against her by a guest who attended a Buckingham Palace reception to combat violence against women on Tuesday.

Domestic abuse activist Ngozi Fulani says she was repeatedly asked racially-loaded questions about her heritage and background by the palace aide at the reception, which was hosted by Queen Camilla.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said the member of the royal household has resigned and apologized after "unacceptable and deeply regrettable comments" were made.

Outlining the full conversation on Twitter, Fulani, who was born in Britain and attended the event on behalf of Sistah Space — a support group for African and Caribbean women affected by abuse — claimed she was asked questions like "what nationality are you?" "where do you really come from?" "where do your people come from?" and "what part of Africa are you from?"

The courtier has not been named by Buckingham Palace, but her name has been widely reported on social media.

"We take this incident extremely seriously and have investigated immediately to establish the full details," a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said on Wednesday.

"In this instance, unacceptable and deeply regrettable comments have been made," the statement continued. "We have reached out to Ngozi Fulani on this matter, and are inviting her to discuss all elements of her experience in person if she wishes.

"In the meantime, the individual concerned would like to express her profound apologies for the hurt caused and has stepped aside from her honorary role with immediate effect. All members of the Household are being reminded of the diversity and inclusivity policies which they are required to uphold at all times."

The racism allegations come as Prince William and Kate Middleton travel to Boston on Wednesday for three days of events leading up to William's Earthshot Prize awards ceremony on Friday evening.

In a statement Wednesday, a spokesman for the Prince and Princess of Wales said: "I was really disappointed to hear about the guest's experience. Racism has no place in our society. These comments were unacceptable and it's right that the individual has stepped aside with immediate effect."

Fulani attended Queen Camilla's palace event to highlight the campaign against domestic and sexual abuse of women. Fulani was invited by Safe Lives, one of the charities Camilla, 75, has long supported.

Following the event, Camilla issued a rare personal tweet on the royal family's Twitter account.

"Today, a remarkable group of people gathered at Buckingham Palace with one aim – to see the end of violence against women and girls. I was deeply moved and inspired by their stories. With determination and courage, we will see the end of these heinous crimes forever," she said, signing the message from "Camilla R," standing for the Latin word for queen, "Regina."

There has been a trend in the last decade or so of re-releasing old 80s albums remastered with all the remixes and so on.

Let's again snark scathingly about time-wasting, complicated, attention-seeking women on the checkout line.

Afterwork today there were two registers open at the small market on my way home. The shorter line had one sexy slut fat granny. In her big cart (nobody takes a cart in this shop) were 3 cases of crappy sweet Italian Spumante plus 6 loose bottles of same, and a couple miscellaneous garbage food items, with a flashy lamé eyeglasses case forbiddingly hidden under a large pack of assorted luncheon meats. She didn't put anything on the belt. Her engagement with the cashier started with a receipt, which had to be laboriously extracted from her sequinned purse from her faux Vuitton bag (sequins and brown Vuitton??), and there was a favour to be demanded of the cashier. A favour which had been arranged a few days ago with "YOUR manager" and then you can imagine all the complications of that cart and and its items and that hidden lamé eyeglass case. With grim fascination, like violent and bloody highway accident, I determined to wait out the entire, rather than switch cashiers. Well, a dozen customers checked out while she still hadn't finished her transaction. Then we had the exciting late plot complication of the non-working card then the "oh, this is just the wrong card, could you please void it so I can use my special card" and then before entering the pin, pulling out the card, a second before the mercantile Jouissance, to reanimate the previous negotiation of the favour.
