[quote]Months after winning a national title, Harvard's debate team has fallen to a group of New York inmates. The showdown took place at the Eastern New York Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison where convicts can take courses taught by faculty from nearby Bard College, and where inmates have formed a popular debate club. Last month, they invited the Ivy League undergraduates and this year's national debate champions over for a friendly competition.
[quote]The Harvard debate team also was crowned world champions in 2014. But the inmates are building a reputation of their own. In the two years since they started a debate club, the prisoners have beaten teams from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the University of Vermont. The competition with West Point, which is now an annual affair, has grown into a rivalry. At Bard, those who help teach the inmates aren't particularly surprised by their success.
[quote]"Students in the prison are held to the exact same standards, levels of rigor and expectation as students on Bard's main campus," said Max Kenner, executive director of the Bard Prison Initiative, which operates in six New York prisons. "Those students are serious. They are not condescended to by their faculty."Students on the Harvard team weren't immediately available for comment, but shortly after the loss, they posted a comment on a team Facebook page.
[quote]"There are few teams we are prouder of having lost a debate to than the phenomenally intelligent and articulate team we faced this weekend," they wrote. "And we are incredibly thankful to Bard and the Eastern New York Correctional Facility for the work they do and for organizing this event."

In the three years after they go under the knife, patients who have bariatric surgery to aid in weight loss are more likely than they were before the operation to attempt suicide or end up in the hospital after doing harm to themselves, new research says.
As complications of weight-loss surgery go, the hazard was rare. A Canadian study that tracked 8,815 bariatric surgery patients found that in their three post-surgical years, just 1.3% of those patients landed in the hospital following a self-harm emergency, which included intentional drug overdoses or suicide attempts by other means.
But that rate of self-injurious behavior represented a 54% increase over that seen in the same patient population during the three years before these patients had surgery.

[quote]Older adults who have little face-to-face contact with family and friends are at almost twice the risk of developing depression, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.Lack of face-to-face contact with friends and family increases depression risk for older adults, says study.
[quote]What is more, the study found that regular contact with others over the telephone or through email does not offset the risk of depression associated with lack of in-person contact."Research has long supported the idea that strong social bonds strengthen people's mental health. But this is the first look at the role that the type of communication with loved ones and friends plays in safeguarding people from depression," notes lead author Dr. Alan Teo, assistant professor of psychiatry at Oregon Health & Science University.
[quote]"We found that all forms of socialization aren't equal," he adds. "Phone calls and digital communication, with friends or family members, do not have the same power as face-to-face social interactions in helping to stave off depression."

[quote]Jared Leto was so deep in his Suicide Squad character that co-star Will Smith says the two never really met."I’ve never actually met Jared Leto," Will Smith told Beats 1 (via /Film). "We worked together for 6 months and we’ve never exchanged a word outside of ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’ I literally have not met him yet. So, the first time I see him will be ‘Hey, Jared. What’s up?’ He was all in on the Joker."
[quote]Smith isn't the first one to address Leto's method acting. Fellow co-star Adam Beach (Slipknot) spoke over the summer about the time Leto sent the other Squad members special packages while away from the production. Those included a love letter accompanied by a live rat for Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), and bullets and a dead hog for Will Smith (Deadshot).
[quote]"Basically, what he said was, ‘Guys, I can’t be there but I want you to know I’m doing my work as hard as you guys,'" Beach said. "The video he showed is in character. It blew our minds away."

People in the OSCARBAIT COLLAPSE thread talked about how Cate is perceived as a bit of a cow these days for being an ass and dissing other actors. When did she do this? I remember during Blue Jasmine she was criticised for being wishy washy on Woody Allen and being a bit drunk a the Golden Globes but that's it. She's always been a tad pretentious and mannered (even in the trailers for CAROL she's posing and "performing" compared to hoe present and interior Rooney Mara seems) but any gossip is good.

He said he'd get her a nomination, but could not guarantee an Oscar. She refused saying she wanted an Oscar or no deal. How is that harassment? Sounds like a failed business deal (prostitution) that she willingly participated in and attempted to control for a desirable outcome. She offered herself for a price, but the price was too high.
I love this comment someone posted about a famous Winston Churchill anecdote:
[quote]This reminds me of a perhaps apocryphal story about Winston Churchill at a private party. Someone proposes a hypothetical question to the women – would you sleep with a rich man to whom you were not attracted, if he paid you a million pounds? The women, laughing sheepishly, all say that they would. Then Churchill leans over to the very attractive woman sitting next to him and says “will you sleep with me tonight for a hundred pounds?” She is incensed and says huffily “What do you think I am, a prostitute?” And he says “Madam, we have already established that you are. I was just trying to negotiate a better price.”

I live in a nice area with tons of Craftsman homes. My neighbors who are very nice people in their late 60's went away for a week. They told me they'd have their son-in-laws sister and bf house sit for them because they have a cat. I've met girl who is in her mid twenties now. She has house sat for them for many years without any problems. Well, my neighbors left last Thursday morning and by that afternoon six cars with ten people pull up with blow up beds and laundry in hand. It's Sunday and all of these people haven't left the house except for a store run but the girl and bf have left for hours leaving these strangers in the house all day. Now, knowing my neighbors as well as I do I can't imagine them wanting this in their house. So the question is should I say something to my neighbors or should I stay out of it?

The kitchen set used in the show (seen beginning at the 4:15 mark in the following video) was preserved after its cancellation and later used as the "Golden Girls" kitchen, with the only major change being the exterior backdrop seen through the kitchen window, which was switched from a view of neighboring Chicago high-rise buildings to that of palm trees and bushes for "The Golden Girls".

[quote]Last year, unarmed teenager Michael Brown was fatally shot by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. The incident drew attention to racially charged police brutality, and sparked outrage nationwide. Fatal police shootings involving black citizens, however, are only one of the consequences of racial inequality. For decades, black Americans have faced higher poverty rates, lower incomes and higher incarceration rates than white Americans. While African Americans in every U.S. city face such problems, racial inequality is much worse in some parts of the country. By examining the disparities between white and black Americans in several economic and social measures, 24/7 Wall St. identified the 10 worst cities for black Americans.
[quote]Four of the cities with the worst racial inequality are in Illinois, two are in Iowa, and all are in the Midwest. 24/7 Wall St. interviewed Valerie Wilson, director of the program on race, ethnicity, and the economy at the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), a progressive think tank. Wilson associated the geographical clustering of these cities to the Great Migration — the relocation of millions of African Americans from the South to cities in the North and Midwest between 1916 and 1970.
[quote]Over that period, African Americans fled from the oppressive Jim Crow policies of the South, among other forms of racism, to cities such as Chicago and New York. These areas — the Midwest in particular — were undergoing a manufacturing boom at the time, and black and other Americans sought economic opportunities there. However, the industrial Midwestern economies have declined dramatically since 1970, and the region today is a part of what is commonly known as the Rust Belt.
[quote]The manufacturing industries in those areas offered relatively well-paying jobs to relatively uneducated people — many of whom were African American. As Wilson explained, “those industries have essentially dried up, and the opportunities are no longer there, but the people still are.”

[quote]Like many schools across the country, St. Mary’s, a small, public liberal arts college, is figuring out how to field increasing requests for animals by students with diagnosed mental health problems. Last fall it began allowing “comfort animals” for students like Ms. Brill, Theo’s owner, who has anxiety and depression, and Ms. McCarthy, Carl’s owner, who gets panic attacks.Students like Ms. Brill, who has anxiety and depression, are increasingly requesting to keep comfort animals on campus. Credit Drew Angerer for The New York Times
[quote]Anxiety, followed closely by depression, has become a growing diagnosis among college students in the last few years. But as students with psychiatric diagnoses are asking to reside on campus with their own animals, schools with no-pet housing policies are scrambling to address a surfeit of new problems. How can administrators discern a troubled adolescent’s legitimate request from that of a homesick student who would really, really like a kitten? If a student with a psychological disability has the right to live with an animal, how should schools protect other students whose allergies or phobias may be triggered by that animal?

On one of the gay Youtuber threads, someone mentioned ASMR. I had forgotten about it after first hearing the term on This American Life awhile ago. I've had it since early childhood and never knew it was something that happened to others. For those that aren't familiar, ASMR is a strong tingling in the scalp, neck, and spine caused by specific sounds. It feels almost like the tingle you get when your leg falls to sleep, but much stronger and completely pleasurable. What sounds cause this vary person to person, but for me it's very soft-spoken people. After seeing it in the other thread, I fell back down the YouTube rabbit hole and found this guy. He is so cute, and his whisper videos make my tingle so much I feel like I could orgasm without even touching myself. Everytime my old man catches me watching these videos he teases me to no end. There are lots of videos of him in a tank top and he's got a nice body. He's not a model but awfully cute, still. What do y'all think of him?

And if you’d just do it the way I see it, we’d really be onto something.’ And there’s part of me that goes: ‘Why are you here?’ A director who hasn’t written something, and they say, ‘Trust me.’ And I’m like, ‘With what, mate?’ ”

Caught between conflicting moral arguments, Gov. Jerry Brown, a former Jesuit seminary student, signed a measure Monday allowing physicians to prescribe lethal doses of drugs to terminally ill patients who want to hasten their deaths.
Brown appeared to struggle in deciding whether to approve the bill, whose opponents included the Catholic Church.
In the end, I was left to reflect on what I would want in the face of my own death,” Brown wrote in a signing message. “I do not know what I would do if I were dying in prolonged and excruciating pain. I am certain, however, that it would be a comfort to be able to consider the options afforded by this bill. And I wouldn’t deny that right to others.”
The new law is modeled after one that went into effect in 1997 in Oregon, where last year 105 people took their lives with drugs prescribed for that purpose.
The California law will permit physicians to provide lethal prescriptions to mentally competent adults who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and face the expectation that they will die within six months.
The law will take effect 90 days after the Legislature adjourns its special session on healthcare, which may not be until next year — January at the earliest, November at the latest.
The governor's action caps months of emotional and contentious debate over the End of Life Option Act, which divided physicians, ethicists, religious leaders and the Democratic majority in the Legislature.
Tim Rosales, a spokesman for Californians Against Assisted Suicide, which includes doctors, advocates for the disabled, the California Catholic Conference and other religious groups, criticized Brown’s action.
“This is a dark day for California and for the Brown legacy,” Rosales said. “As someone of wealth and access to the world’s best medical care and doctors, the governor's background is very different than that of millions of Californians living in healthcare poverty without that same access — these are the people and families potentially hurt by giving doctors the power to prescribe lethal overdoses to patients.”
Catholic Church officials, when asked for comment, said Rosales would speak for them. Rosales said the coalition is considering its options, including a lawsuit and a referendum.
Brown said he weighed the religious arguments.
The bill “is not an ordinary bill because it deals with life and death,” Brown wrote. “The crux of the matter is whether the state of California should continue to make it a crime for a dying person to end his life, no matter how great his pain or suffering.”
The issues raised by the legislation are personal ones for Brown, who has survived multiple brushes with cancer and has lost family members. Death has been a source of humor, such as in May when he ruminated on the pointlessness of pursuing perfect solutions in an imperfect world.
“It’s messy, there’s suffering, and in the end we all die,” Brown said in a speech to a business group. “When you’re 77, by the way, that’s something that’s a little more imminent.”
He had a small basal cell carcinoma removed from near his right ear in 2008, and in 2011 he had a cancerous growth removed from his nose. The year after that, Brown was treated for early stage prostate cancer. When the treatment ended, the governor told reporters, “I'm rarin' to go. Don't expect me to leave too soon.”

Ever lived in one? I have and everything that could happen did. It was burglarized, it flooded, and it smelled like the parking garage down the hall. And it wasn't any cooler in summer.
My niece is doing her masters in another city and is living in one now. So far so good but being a woman adds another big concern I didn't have to worry about. She used a portable air conditioner, easily removable . She's on a busy street and claims she is in plain sight so that no one would even try to break in.
But all it takes is one nut and her bedroom window is about four feet from the sidewalk.
I'd be in a full blown anxiety attack for very summer storm, in fact, her place has laminate flooring and peel and stick tile because the place was badly flooded during a storm about 15 years ago.
But it is brighter than one would expect, and the rooms are huge, and of course it is relatively inexpensive.
Im helping her pay for it but I would have felt better about this arrangement if she'd taken a large studio on an upper floor for the same price.

I am in most desperate need of advice to resolve a conflict which has arisen between my partner and myself. After many years together, we decided to take the plunge and move in together. Of course, we have spent much time together and I thought I knew and understood him well, but now I find that things are not working out as hoped or planned.
I'm afraid that I have made a mistake which will be exceedingly difficult to repair. We have both sold our homes and purchased a lovely river-front condo together, so getting out of this situation will not be easy. I want to try and work things out, but I don't know how much time and effort I should expend. When does something become a waste of time, money and emotion? This is my question.
I realize now that perhaps the two of us were meant to be partners but maybe we just shouldn't live together. I love him, and I know he loves me, but really, I think moving in together was a mistake. I'm afraid to bring this up to him after all we both have been through, but I don't know for how much longer I can put up with the situation.
Part of the problem for me is his family. They are lovely people, but they drop-in, unannounced and uninvited on a regular basis. I work shift work, and they just drop in whenever, this past Saturday they showed up at our condo at 9:00 am and I had only finished my shift at 5. I wasn't pleased to say the least. He seems to think that it is no big deal and they mean well. I know they mean well, but I am trying to sleep at that time. He says that I can't expect the world to understand my crazy work schedule. He reminds me quite often about how he hates my career and its demands. I can not leave my job. It pays extremely well, we both have great benefits because of my job, and, I have many years invested into a fantastic pension plan. Not to mention, I love my job and couldn't imagine working in a different field.
He was also upset with me recently when I was unable to attend a family function due to my work schedule. He wanted me to take the day off to go for dinner to celebrate his aunt's birthday. I couldn't miss my shift (I am supervising a massive railway expansion project) on such short notice and he was really upset and didn't understand why I couldn't get out of work on a Sunday evening.
I am really starting to resent the situation. There is never a problem going for dinner and show or holiday for example ( I usually pay as I make more money), but then he constantly bitches in I get called in to work unexpectedly or if I have overtime. In the meantime, he quit his job before finding another, but has no problem complaining about my career.
There are other things that bother me as well that I didn't fully realize, (or better I was blind to before), he is drinking more than before, especially since he quit his job. It is really hard to come home after a long and stressful shift to find him either drinking at home or out at the bar. If he is drunk, he'll just bitch to me about how many hours I spent at work.
I'm getting stressed out over this situation. I realize now that I didn't think things through clearly before I sold my house, but I really thought that things would work out well.

Recurrent allegations have been made that between 1969 and 1987 approximately 900 men and women had gender reassignment surgery, the only known example of such operations being performed in military hospitals. They were given new identity documents, discharged from the military, and told to cut themselves off from family and friends.
The casualty rates were high. Patients died during surgery, and some were discharged before reassignment was completed, with extra surgery required. Preoperative or postoperative assessment was not done, informed consent was not obtained, and expensive hormone regimens were needed to maintain appearance. Patients later petitioned the military for compensation to pay for hormones or surgery.
It was based on the simplistic belief that male homosexuals were sissies, female homosexuals were tomboys, and surgery would end their preference for the same sex by allowing them to fulfil their projected role in the opposite sex.

I'm fascinated by this subject. I have a book that talks about haunting houses, cemeteries, and strange stories.
This one intrigued me:
"Not long before the opening of the French capital's Great Exposition of 1889, a distraught young Englishwoman rushed into the British embassy in Paris and told a story that has reverberated through fantasy and fiction ever since. She and her mother were on their way home from India and, owing to the shortage of accommodations in the crowded city, had taken two single rooms in a hotel. The mother chose Room 342, decorated with rose-strewn wallpaper and plum-colored velvet curtains. Then the older woman collapsed on the bed.
After examining the prostrate guest and talking excitedly in French with the hotel manager, the house doctor told the young woman that her mother was seriously ill and must have some medicine. But the proper medication could be found only in his office on the other side of town. The daughter would have to take his carriage and carry a note to his wife, who would hand her the drugs.
What should have been a simple errand consumed four hours. The driver kept the horses to an amble and seemed to steer in circles, and the doctor's wife took a long time to produce the medicine.
Finally, the frustrated daughter arrived back at the hotel, only to discover that all queries about her mother were met with blank stares. "I know nothing of your mother," said the manager. "You arrived here alone." The doctor was similarly confused by the woman's questions. Frantic now, the young traveler examined the hotel register. Instead of her mother's familiar signature, she saw a stranger's beside Room 342. Insisting on looking at the room itself, she found no velvet curtain, no flowered wallpaper, no familiar baggage — only the luggage of strangers. At this point, she fled to the embassy, where she was received with sympathy — and general disbelief. Trapped in a nightmare, the young woman ended her days in a British mental hospital."
It seems this is only a legend, still is fascinating

My point of view is controversial, but it is one that concerned parents need to hear.
I was your typical, gender atypical little girl. My friends were all boys. My favorite pastimes included rough-and-tumble play and running around the house while waving my he-man sword high in the air. I insisted on using the toilet while standing up. I hated dolls and the color pink.
I dreaded puberty, and when that inevitable time came, I was relieved to find that my body didn’t undergo too many physical changes aside from a self-induced shaved head.
Then something bizarre happened—I reached my late teens, and for the first time on my own volition, I fancied putting on a dress. The idea of appearing feminine no longer repulsed me, so I grew my hair long and began carrying a purse.
Now, as a cisgender woman in my thirties and a sex researcher, I follow the current discourse on transgender children’s issues. The predominant narrative is imbalanced and this must be addressed—for the sake of trans children, their families, and medical decision-making.
Popular opinion suggests that early intervention is the necessary approach in order to remedy a child’s gender dysphoria. This consists of early social transitioning followed by hormone blockers to prevent the otherwise irreversible changes of puberty, contra-sex hormones, and, if desired, eventual sex re-assignment surgery. Denying a child these interventions is viewed as antiquated and cruel.
But research has shown that most gender dysphoric children outgrow their dysphoria, and do so by adolescence: Most will grow up to be happy, gay adults, and some, like myself, to be happy, straight adults. There is a small proportion of trans kids whose dysphoria will persist and who would benefit from medical intervention, but the tricky part remains predicting whom these ideal candidates will be.
For a young child whose gender dysphoria would have desisted without intervention, these procedures amount to a needlessly challenging process to undergo—and that’s without considering the implications of choosing to transition back. Even a social transition back to one’s original gender role can be an emotionally difficult experience for children.
Waiting until a child has reached cognitive maturity before making these sorts of decisions would make the most sense. But this is an unpopular stance, and scientists and clinicians who support it are vilified, not because science—which should be our guiding beacon—disproves it, but because it has been deemed insensitive and at odds with the current ideology.
I often wonder, as I review the myriad of editorials and magazine articles published every day on transgender kids, if I had been born 20 years later, would adults in my life be suggesting transitioning as a solution for me? Even more alarmingly, with all of the information floating around the Internet and on mainstream TV, would I myself believe that I had an issue that would not eventually subside on its own?
I was lucky in that my parents were never troubled by my gender non-conformity. They allowed me to dress how I pleased and to pursue the interests I enjoyed. The only thing they remained firm about was my sitting down to use the toilet, but that was more about the mess I would otherwise make than any socially reinforced gender norms.
Outgrowing my discomfort resulted from the realization that gender does not need to be binary. To this day, I still feel that I am more masculine than most natal females, but also much more feminine than most natal males. We can have the best of both worlds.
I urge families, who are struggling through a sea of mixed information and unknowns, to not act in haste. Know that your support and acceptance will help your child survive this difficult time so that, together, you can make an informed decision when they are ready.

"How Bernie Sanders would transform the nation"
In the America that Bernie Sanders wants to create, tuition would be free for every student at every public college.
Which, of course, is another way of saying that the government would pay for it. To do that, the Democratic presidential candidate would spend $750 billion over 10 years and raise the money with a new tax on Wall Street trades.
And with the government paying for college, colleges would run by government rules. Sanders’s rules. For one thing, Sanders thinks student centers are a waste of government money. He would make sure they did not get any more of it.
If he becomes president, Sanders would spend an enormous amount of money: $3.27 trillion. At the very, very least.
He is not just a big-spending liberal. His agenda is not just about money.
It’s also about control.
The biggest pieces of Sanders’s domestic agenda — making college, health care and child care more affordable — seek to capture these industries and convert them to run chiefly on federal money.
Sanders thinks this would consolidate areas now shaped by a confusing mix of federal rules, state laws and the private market, and make these systems cheaper and more efficient.
The risk is that this authority would expand the federal bureaucracy, which has sometimes struggled to make itself run cheaply and efficiently.
Sanders said voters would welcome the change. Even if it means Americans must turn to the federal government to oversee new sectors of their lives. He bristles at the idea that this might be considered an intrusion.
“You’re not ‘turning to’ the government. You’re assuming that the government is some kind of foreign entity,” Sanders said in an interview. “The government, in a democratic society, is the people.”
Bernie Sanders — a senator from Vermont who describes himself as a “democratic socialist” — will never get everything he wants in Washington.
And that still would be true if he became President Sanders. Republicans in Congress would fight him fiercely. Democrats might not be much help. In fact, Sanders’s most recent Senate bills — legislation that would make college free and provide universal health care — attracted zero Democrats as co-sponsors.
But now, the same ideas that have made Sanders a lonely leftist in the Senate have made him a star on the campaign trail. And he is setting himself up as a champion of liberal ideals while making rival Hillary Rodham Clinton appear cautious by comparison.
This assessment of Sanders’s vision is based on an examination of his current and past legislation; his campaign speeches; and interviews with him, his chief policy aide and experts.
After years of debate about how much government to cut, Sanders has succeeded — at least with a piece of the electorate — by promising that he would make it grow substantially.
“I want you all not to think small. I want you to think big,” Sanders said during a speech in South Carolina in August. “This is the wealthiest country in the history of the world.”
The simplest parts of Sanders’s platform are the parts that are simply very expensive. New money. But pumped through old pipes.
He would allot, for example, an extra $1.2 trillion for Social Security beneficiaries, paid for by higher taxes on people earning more than $250,000. He also would create a new Social Security benefit: paying for Americans of any age to take 12 weeks off to care for a new baby or deal with a serious illness. The funding for that would be new taxes on wage earners and businesses, raising $319 billion.
Clinton also has called for a family-leave benefit, but her staff declined to say how she would pay for it.

I'm only to the end of the 1950s -- well before she became a superagent -- and this is already vastly entertaining. By the time she was in her early twenties, she was working as a secretary in a talent firm, where one coworker remembers her coming in one Monday, throwing down her purse, putting her feet on her desk, and cooing, "Sue had a rough weekend. Sue's THINGY hurts."
Even from a very young age, she was a relentless starfucker who ruthlessly categorized people as "losers" and "winners" (famously walking into a Hollywood party at the end of her career and sneering, "Schindler's B-List") and would ingratiate herself with anyone she thought was on the rise; she got in tight with Barbra Streisand during the 1960s by promoting Elliott Gould and getting him his first movies. She also spent a lot of weekends with Gore Vidal and his partner on Fire Island.
Looking forward to the late 1960s and 1970s sections, where Sue apparently would summon the help to bring her a joint by braying "GRAAAAASSSS!"

He is 100% correct. The growth of government has destroyed this country, and "Homeland Security" is just a symptom of the fascist/socialist nature of our country.
Stockton, California Mayor Anthony R. Silva attended a recent mayor’s conference in China, but his return trip took a bit longer than usual. At the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) this week, agents with the Department of Homeland Security detained Silva and confiscated his personal cell phone among other electronics. According to comments from the mayor, that may not even be the most alarming part.
“Unfortunately, they were not willing or able to produce a search warrant or any court documents suggesting they had a legal right to take my property,” Silva told SFGate. “In addition, they were persistent about requiring my passwords for all devices.”
The mayor’s attorney, Mark Reichel, told SFGate that Silva was not allowed to leave the airport without forfeiting his passwords. Reichel was not present for Silva’s interaction with the DHS agents, either. The mayor was told he had “no right for a lawyer to be present” and that being a US citizen did not “entitle me to rights that I probably thought,” according to the paper.
Evidently, Silva was well aware of the situation and only had his concerns heightened by first-hand experience. Talking to SFGate, he briefly compared the government battle on privacy to notorious dictatorships worldwide.
“I think the American people should be extremely concerned about their personal rights and privacy,” Silva told the paper. “As I was being searched at the airport, there was a Latino couple to my left, and an Asian couple to my right also being aggressively searched. I briefly had to remind myself that this was not North Korea or Nazi Germany. This is the land of the Free.”

Last year, the world was stunned by an IMF report which found the Chinese economy larger and more productive than that of the United States, both in terms of raw GDP and purchasing power parity (PPP). The Chinese people created more goods and had more purchasing power with which to obtain them — a classic sign of prosperity. At the same time, the Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite more than doubled in value since October of 2014. This explosion in growth was accompanied by a post-recession construction boom that rivals anything the world has ever seen. In fact, in the three years from 2011 – 2013, the Chinese economy consumed more cement than the United States had in the entire twentieth century. Across the political spectrum, the narrative for the last fifteen years has been that of a rising Chinese hyperpower to rival American economic and cultural influence around the globe. China’s state-led “red capitalism” was a model to be admired and even emulated.
Yet, here we sit in 2015 watching the Chinese stock market fall apart despite the Chinese central bank’s desperate efforts to create liquidity through government-backed loans and bonds. Since mid-June, Chinese equities have fallen by more than 30 percent despite massive state purchases of small and mid-sized company shares by China’s Security Finance Corporation.
But this series of events should have surprised nobody. China’s colossal stock market boom was not the result of any increase in the real value or productivity of the underlying assets. Rather, the boom was fueled primarily by a cascade of debt pouring out of the Chinese central bank.

"Rafael Nadal is ready to bask in the fashion spotlight — in his underwear.
The world’s eighth-ranked tennis player is about to make his first appearance as brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger underwear and tailored clothing, and a new men’s fragrance, TH Bold. The 29-year-old Nadal signed a two-year agreement with the brand, beginning this fall.
The tennis star will appear at this afternoon at an exclusive celebrity tennis tournament at Bryant Park in New York, hosted by Hilfiger and attended by such people as Jane Lynch, Lake Bell, Martha Stewart, Chanel Iman, Hannah Davis and Noah Mills. It is open to the public at 12:30 p.m., with V.I.P. seating. That evening, he will also participate with Hilfiger in an appearance and question-and-answer segment, moderated by Lloyd Boston, in Macy’s fragrance department.
Hilfiger told WWD that the brand this fall is relaunching its underwear business — which it has had for 20 years — with new, more technical product, including a four-way stretch microfiber with a sleek waistband. “Because we’re so global now, Rafael Nadal resonates globally in most countries in the world. He also looks amazing in the underwear and the clothes,” Hilfiger said.
“He’s not doctored up, that’s the real guy,” said the designer, discussing the underwear ads.
Hilfiger and Nadal have been friendly for several years, having met while Nadal was playing a tennis tournament in Monaco. Nadal won’t have his name on the product, but he will appear in a major campaign that breaks today and encompasses print, outdoor, television and digital advertising globally. Billboards showcasing Nadal in Hilfiger underwear will go up in such cities as New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Hong Kong, Mexico City and Melbourne, Australia."

By Daniel McAdams-On Wednesday the Russian military became active in the fight against ISIS and al-Qaeda in Syria. Pursuant to a request from the Syrian government, Moscow first began deploying military equipment and trainers as well as humanitarian assistance. Then the Russian parliament approved the use of force, and force was indeed used on Wednesday.
The Obama Administration is not happy about this development.
The US has been bombing Syria for a year without permission from the Syrian government and without a UN Security Council resolution authorizing an attack on a sovereign nation. That means US strikes on Syrian soil are illegal according to international law. However the first US response to the Russian strikes against ISIS in Syria was to condemn the Russian government for not coordinating its strikes with the US.
Unsurprisingly, the US mainstream media once again rushed to carry water for the US administration, with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour pondering whether Russia answering the legitimate Syrian government’s request for assistance would open itself up to war crimes charges! In Amanpour’s world there is no crime in a year of bombing a sovereign state with not even a fig leaf UN resolution to back it up. The only crime is to resist the US empire. No wonder in a world of media austerity, Amanpour is a well-compensated regime propagandist.

[italic] The stigmas surrounding women’s bodies are powerful, but they’re no match for how powerful I feel after running
I was ordering coffee when I noticed a well-dressed woman staring at me.
“You look like you just did a class,” she said, giving me the once-over. I had no idea what she meant so I said nothing.
“Or swimming?” she offered, with a tight smile.
Oh, that. I’d just run 12 miles and the hair sticking out from under my hat was wet. It took me a moment to formulate an answer.
“Um, running,” I mumbled finally. “I just … sweat a lot.”
I took the paper cup of drip coffee and hustled past the condiment bar. Screw the half-and-half; I’d drink it black.
Once safely inside my car, I threw off my damp running cap and flipped up the hood of my sweatshirt in embarrassment. I wanted to dive deep into that Lululemon Scuba and never come back up for air.
Eventually the caffeine kicked in and it hit me: I’d been sweat-shamed. Sweat-shaming is when someone points out your sweatiness as a way to signal disapproval. Like its counterparts, slut-shaming and fat-shaming, sweat-shaming is aimed mainly at women, who are actually not supposed to sweat at all.
Horses sweat, men perspire, and women glow, as the saying goes.
I glow like a nuclear reactor. My body cools itself exactly as I need it to. After long, hard runs my fair, fine hair sometimes ends up dripping wet. I bring dry clothes to throw on afterward and try to forget about it.
Until somebody reminds me. Strong may be the new sexy and fit may be the new skinny but sweaty is as gross as ever. To “sweat like a pig” is to be fat, dirty, uncivilized. Nobody wants to fall into this category, so we attempt to conceal our perspiration – something I’d tried but failed to do at Starbucks.
Rather than challenge sweat-shaming, I played right into it, conceding that I “sweat a lot.”
But do I, really? We have been hiding this natural bodily function so long we have no idea how much a “normal” woman sweats – if there is such a thing – much the same way many men have no idea how much make-up it takes to produce “natural” beauty. (Cue the Amy Schumer if you doubt me.)
Now, instead of just concealing sweat, we may opt to stop it entirely. A flurry of recent “trend” articles describe how some women are getting Botox injected into in their scalps to keep their heads from sweating, thus preserving their blow-outs through intense SoulCycle sessions.
Pharmaceuticals may one day liberate us from perspiration. But what if instead we chose to be liberated by it?
In her book, The Female Grotesque, feminist theorist Mary Russo explains how throughout literature, the image of the “open, protruding, secreting body,” stands in contrast to archetypal female beauty and might offer a way to subvert it.
Open, protruding, secreting; this sounds a lot like the body of a woman running. Literature’s crones and bearded ladies may have been on to something, but it would be nice if women could exercise their freedoms without being regarded as freaks.
If I were to re-imagine the sweat-shaming incident as a music video, it would play out like this: a spotlight comes down, and maybe a disco ball. Baristas dance back-up around me.
“I don’t think you’re ready for this sweaty,” I belt out, to the tune of Bootylicious.
It’s just a fantasy, but it helps me see how I might react differently. I’ve got another long run this weekend and afterward, I’m going to sit down with my coffee, all sweaty and transgressive.

I live on the third floor of a Victorian in a neighborhood full of three-story Victorians. There's another across my driveway with windows facing my apartment. It's never been a problem - I leave the blinds halfway down so I'm not staring into that apartment, and its tenants usually do the same.
A new tenant moved into that apartment last week. Tonight my cat was meowing in the window so I looked out to see what was bothering him. The new tenant was crouched on the narrow ledge outside her window, smoking a cigarette and staring into my living room window. She was out there for hours, a chain-smoking Gargoyle. She didn't even leave when I closed the window and blinds and shot her a dirty look.
First of all: CREEPY. Second: the ledge she was perched on is maybe 18" wide and has been hollowed out by pigeons that live there. It's freaking precarious, and if the chick falls, she lands in my driveway. I don't want her to get hurt, and I especially don't want to have to clean it up and worry about the insurance and lawsuit implications.
Would it be out of line, or not worth the trouble it might cause, for me to mention it to her landlord, who lives on the second floor? I know he'll disapprove - because of the possible falling death thing, and because it's a non-smoking apartment (so I'm sure she lied to him about her smoking). I expect he'll talk to her and tell her not to perch out there... but I don't know if she's the kind of nutjob I shouldn't piss off. It would be easy for her to vandalize my car or fuck with my house. And she's a fucking Gargoyle! Don't they eat people's faces or something?
I welcome any advice DL has for me. TIA.

The Community College of Philadelphia is on lockdown Tuesday morning after a man with a gun was seen entering a campus building following an argument with a student.
NBC Philadelphia reports the altercation ended when the student threatened to go get security, and the man who had pulled the gun ran into the school’s Winnet Student Life Building. That building was put on lockdown around 9:30 a.m., with the entire campus ordered to shelter in place shortly after.
Police have now cleared the Winnet building, but the campus is still on lockdown and the shelter in place order remains in effect as of 11:40 a.m. SWAT teams are searching for the suspect in an adjacent parking garage.
The suspect is an African-American man, described as 5’4” and wearing a red hoodie. Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said he doesn’t believe this incident has anything to do with school shooting threats made on 4chan yesterday against Philadelphia-area universities.
Update 11:53 a.m.: NBC is reporting the suspect is in custody, but police have not yet located the gun. “He was found in a classroom and the arrest was made safely.”

50 Cent just can't let go of his rivalry with Empire.
The Power executive producer seems to be bothered by the hit network series' ratings, and took to social media to throw some shade in the show's direction when the series took an 18 percent dip in viewership in its second episode of the season.
In a post that has since been deleted, Fifty reposted an Instagram user’s post that pointed out the second episode of Empire had 3 million fewer viewers, blaming it on too many celebrity cameos and too many “gay” plots. “There are 3 million less viewers who tuned into last night’s Empire episode!!!! did you watch it?" it read. "We could not take the extra gay stuff or celebrity stuff last night!!!!”
50 added, “Empire’s ratings took a huge hit. Okay I’ll stop now. Cookie call me baby. I’ll tell every body to watch the show for you.”
This isn't the first time Fifty has fired shots at the Fox series, earlier calling it "some shit you get for free," as opposed to his premium cable series Power, which is "worth paying for."

Boy accused of killing eight-year-old girl who refused to let him see puppy
Eleven-year-old from Tennessee faces murder charge for allegedly shooting dead his neighbor using father’s gun after she would not allow him to see her pet dog
Associated Press in White Pine, Tennessee, Monday 5 October 2015 13.47 EDT
An 11-year-old boy faces a murder charge after witnesses say he killed his eight-year-old neighbour because she would not let him see her puppy.
Latasha Dyer told WATE-TV her daughter was playing outside when the next-door neighbour asked to see the puppy. She said the girl, McKayla, told the boy “no” and the boy then shot her.
Sheriff Bud McCoig of Jefferson County said the boy used his father’s 12-gauge shotgun to kill McKayla from inside his home.
Deputies called to the scene on Saturday in White Pine found McKayla on the ground with a chest wound. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Dyer told the station that McKayla “was a mommy’s girl” who “could always make you smile”.

Air France managers have been forced to flee the company's headquarters after being attacked by a baying mob of workers that tore their clothes off. Hundreds of angry staff stormed the Air France building at the Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Roissy, near Paris, after the company announced plans to cut 2,900 jobs on Monday.
Two senior executives, Xavier Broseta, Vice President for Human Resources, and Pierre Plissonnier, deputy of Air France long-haul flights, both had their shirts ripped off their backs as they were evacuated through the crowds. Shortly before the attack, Mr Broseta and Air France Chief Executive Frederic Gagey had outlined a drastic cost cutting plan, which would see 2,900 jobs cut by 2017. The cuts include 1,700 ground staff, 900 cabin crew and 300 pilots, as part of efforts to lower costs, two union sources said.

Babysitter who had sex with 11-year-old boy gets suspended sentence
Judge is criticised for saying maturity of victim and immaturity of Jade Hatt – who was 20 at the time – ‘narrowed the arithmetic age gap’ between them
Steven Morris, Monday 5 October 2015 12.19 EDT
A judge has been criticised after deciding not to imprison a 21-year-old babysitter who admitted sexual activity with the 11-year-old boy she was looking after.
Judge Tim Mousley QC gave Jade Hatt a suspended jail term for the offence, committed in November 2014 when she was 20.
Mousley said she was immature, while the boy was mature for his age, and he felt able to step outside normal sentencing guidelines.
He said: “Having read everything before me, it was quite clear he was a mature 11-year-old and you were an immature 20-year-old so that narrows the arithmetic age gap between you.”
The judge also took into account that the boy’s father spoke up for Hatt in court, claiming his son was “fully up for the experience”. However, the boy said he knew what had happened was wrong and he said he had not enjoyed it.
A six-month jail term suspended for two years with supervision was imposed and Hatt was told she must register as a sex offender for seven years. Mousley also imposed a sexual harm prevention order banning her from having unsupervised contact with young boys for two years.

For some, it will be a chance to get redemption for challenges that have been problematic in the past and for others there will be chances to excel at what they’ve done best. Additionally, the game will begin with a classic marooning with a twist that’s never been done before.
[bold]4) Idols will be Hidden at Challenges[/bold] -- This season, the hidden immunity idols will be hidden at the challenges. The players will find a map hidden at their camp that will tell them where to look.
[bold]5) Immunity Idols Won’t Always Look Like Immunity Idols[/bold] -- One of the other twists that are being thrown at the players involves immunity idols that look differently than you would expect them to. They may look like traditional idols or they may look like a stick. Players will need to know when people are bluffing about a potential idol and when they have the genuine article
[bold]6) The First Tribe Headed to Tribal Council will Be Rushed[/bold] -- The losers of the first immunity challenge will head right to tribal council without any time to discuss the vote. It’s unclear how this will affect that crucial first tribal of the season. Without having time to talk, this could be a very unpredictable first vote.

When Jessica Bartholomew agreed to be the surrogate mother for Sherri Shepherd and then husband Lamar Sally it was out of her belief that the couple were deeply in love and wanted a baby to make their family complete because Sherri could not have a child of her own.
That wasn't the case, and now Jessica, 33, in an exclusive interview with Daily Mail Online, says she is furious with Sherri for betraying her, and more importantly, little baby boy, Lamar Jr., who is known as 'LJ', who turned one-year-old last month and is being raised by Lamar as a single parent.
'I will never help another mother have a baby,' an angry Jessica told Daily Mail Online.
'Sherri put me and my family through so much emotionally and almost ruined me financially so I will never trust anyone to go through that again.
'I wanted to help her because she couldn't have a child of her own and it was supposed to be a beautiful thing. But it turned out to be a nightmare.'
Sherri, who has returned to The View as a lead contributor this season, has admitted that she wanted to have a baby not out of love - but to save her dying marriage.
'My situation was a sense of, I didn't state what I needed and what I wanted and what I didn't want for being scared of somebody leaving the relationship,' she told People magazine last month.
'There are consequences to everything, but I was scared to say, "That's not going to work for me. I don't want that."'
However, the mother who had her child said that she knew nothing of Sherri's position at the time.
'If I had known this was Sherri's attempt to save her marriage,' says Jessica, 'there is no way I would have agreed to this surrogacy. Since when has a baby saved a marriage? Never.'
Jessica explained prior to Sherri and Lamar she was a surrogate for another couple with twins and she loved it so she was eager to help another family.
Jessica went back to the same agency she used before and after being selected she had a telephone conference call with the agency, Lamar and Sherri.
'We talked for quite a while and by the time we finished we had agreed to go into this contract. Sherri said she really wanted to have a child with Lamar because it would make their family complete,' she said.
'They already had Jeffrey [who is 10] her son from a previous marriage and Lamar loved him unconditionally, but Lamar did not have any children and she wanted him to have that experience.
'They were hoping for another boy. We used Lamar's sperm and an anonymous egg donor.
'I received $25,000 to be the surrogate. But ironically, because of a medically induced medical condition I was out of work from May until October so I really didn't make any money on this arrangement, I actually went into a hole.'
But the fifth month of her pregnancy Jessica was shocked to learn that Sherri and Lamar's marriage fell apart amid rumors that Lamar was cheating, which he denies.
Sherri cited irreconcilable differences in the court documents.
'I was shocked to hear their marriage was ending but then I was horrified to learn Sherri tried to back out of the surrogate agreement, saying she wanted nothing to do with the baby.'
Sherri claimed Lamar wanted to have this baby as a way to secure a big pay day through child support in case the marriage fell apart, since he had signed a prenuptial agreement before they were married. Lamar has denied this, insisting Sherri was the one who pushed to have this child in the first place and the reason they married as soon as they did was to start a family together.
In an emotionally charged conversation Jessica wanted answers. 'That was devastating to me, what about the baby?'
Jessica asked Lamar, 'what happened?' Lamar told Jessica he doesn't know but that she should not worry because he was going to take care of his son no matter what.
Jessica had no idea the situation would go from bad to worse. Shortly after Lamar Jr., was born on August 5, 2014, Jessica was hit with child support.

ANAHEIM – Disney’s top-level annual passholders will have to shell out more than $1,000 if they want to visit Disneyland and Disney California Adventure anytime of the year.
Disneyland raised its prices for lower-tier annual passes Sunday by as much as $60, highest-tier bi-coastal pass good for visits for Walt Disney World and Disneyland by $300, and eliminated the no-blackout, $779 Premium Annual Passport.
Instead, the park is offering two new top-level passes – the Disney Signature Plus, $1,049 with no blackout days, and the Disney Signature for $849, good for visits for about 350 days, excluding select days during the winter holiday.
Both passes come with additional benefits such as parking, discounts for dining and merchandise and a new PhotoPass that allows passholders unlimited digital downloads of photos taken of them meeting characters, walking around the park and on rides.
Excluded days for the Signature pass are the two weeks around Christmas and New Year, often the theme park’s busiest time of the year. Disneyland has closed its gates at times to control overflowing crowds.
Current Premium passholders will be able to use their pass until it expires, but they will not have the option to renew. Monthly payment options are still available for California residents.
Disney on its website Sunday morning also overhauled prices for annual passes at Walt Disney World. The Disney Signature Platinum Plus pass for visits to all four Disney World theme parks and water parks with no blackout dates is $829.
“In addition to our continued investment in the guest experience and the expansion of our parks, our new selection of annual passes will help us manage strong demand and continue to deliver a world-class experience, while providing more choices for guests to select the pass that best meets their needs,” said Suzi Brown, a Disneyland spokeswoman.
The increase comes after The Walt Disney Co. this summer explored in an online survey a seasonal tiered pricing structure or demand-based pricing. The theme park – celebrating its 60th anniversary – is experiencing record attendance and is moving forward with plans to create a “Star Wars”-themed land.
“We have to look at ways to spread out our attendance throughout the year so we can accommodate demand and avoid bursting at the seams,” Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek told The Wall Street Journal.
Disneyland officials recently announced several attractions will close – some permanently, some for more than a year – starting Jan. 10, to make room for the 14-acre “Star Wars” land that will be built in the northern part of Frontierland and nearby backstage areas.
More than 16.7 million people visited Disneyland and another 8.7 million visited Disney California Adventure last year, according to The Themed Entertainment Association, a trade group that represents members of the theme park industry.
The latest price increase specifically targets Disneyland’s annual passholders, a core base that many unofficial Disney blog sites estimate at 1 million. Some have speculated the recent ticket increases are a much-needed way to reduce the large crowds that occurs at Disneyland during some weekends and high-demand seasons.
Brown said since 2001 – when Disney California Adventure opened – the number of passholders have increased by 250 percent. She did not reveal how many annual passholders Disneyland has.
This is the second time this year Disneyland raised prices for annual passes. In February, Disney raised prices across the board by $3 for one-day, one-park tickets – now $99 a ticket – and raised some annual passes by 11 percent.
The new price for a Deluxe pass, with some Saturday and peak-holiday-period blackouts, went up $50, to $599. Southern California passes, which are only available for renewals, increased to $459 from $389. The cheapest pass – Southern California Select – went to $329 from $299.
Reactions exploded on social media sites. Most were outraged by the higher prices, while some understood Disneyland’s growing dilemma with large crowds.

Does Marvel have a problem with LGBT superheroes?
Joe Williams, 3rd August 2015, 2:44 PM
The comic book giant has been once again come under fire for the lack of sexual diversity among its leading characters.
Marvel’s universe has often been criticised for portraying its heroes primarily as straight, white men.
The company has made attempts to be inclusive of a number of character’s gender and sexuality in the past – for example, it was recently revealed that long time X-Man Iceman is gay.
However, their attempts to promote diversity and include LGBT characters have often been slammed by fans and critics alike, who claim the company is simply trying to increase sales.
And it seems they have done it again, by making the once bisexual character – Hercules – a heterosexual.
Throughout the comic book series “X-Treme X-Men” – based in alternative Marvel universe – the character has a relationship with Wolverine.
In the mainstream Marvel universe, during in Hercules: Fall of an Avenger #1, it also is strongly implied he had a relationship with Northstar – one of Marvel Universe’s most prolific and popular openly gay characters.
Hercules is also listed on Marvel Wiki’s Bisexual Characters list.
Fans were hoping that the hero’s sexuality would be further explored in the recently announced Hercules series – however, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso has quashed any excitement surrounding the subject, by telling CBR that he will definitely be “straight” in the future.
“Hercules and James Howlett’s relationship in ‘X-Treme X-Men’ took place in a unique alternate universe, similar to how Colossus was gay in the Ultimate Universe, but is straight in the 616. Same goes for Hercules here.”
In response, fans were quick to highlight that Hercules bisexuality was a very natural progression for the character, especially considering he is inspired by Greek Mythology – in which the demigod Hercules was also bisexual.
Later in the interview, Alonso tried to silence critics of Marvel’s relationship with LGBT its characters by celebrating the diverse staff behind the comic books: “We are always looking for the best new talent — male, female, White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Straight, Gay,” he said.
CBR noted that any further questions they asked Alfonso over Hercules’ sexuality were swiftly ignored.
Marvel’s new “Hercules” series, written by Dan Abnett and illustrated by Luke Ross, is scheduled to debut in November.

Residents took to social media to post photos of coffins unearthed by the floodwaters, causing them to float from their graves, some going as far as the city streets.
According to Mashable, the combination of heavy rainfall and flooding saturated the soil at the depth of the coffins. Pressure from the water then lifted them to the surface, where floodwaters were able to carry them away."

Earlier tonight I heard a dripping sound coming from some place in my apartment, as I stepped into the hallway I noticed the sound came from the bedroom. As I entered the bedroom, the first thing I noticed was a wet "path" across the ceiling. Knowing immediately what it was I went upstairs and told my neighbors to shut the water off, which they did. Water has been dripping steadily for five or six hours now, maybe about half a cup of water in that time. My question is, if anyone has experienced something similar, what needs to be done here? Are we talking about tearing the entire ceiling/floor down? I have no fault in this so I'm not worried about expenses, I'm just curious about what needs to be done.

Colorado man accused of hunting young men and teenagers on dating app Grindr, keeping them as sex slaves and branding them with his name
Sean Crumpler, 48, of Aurora, Colorado, due to appear in court next month
Accused of keeping men and teenagers he found on Grindr as sex slaves
It is said they were allowed to live at his home rent free in return for sex
One man said Crumpler is HIV positive but didn't practice safe sex
A 48-year-old man has been accused of hunting down teenagers and young men on all-male dating app Grindr, keeping them as sex slaves and branding them with a tattoo of his name.
A 23-year-old man, who dated one of Crumpler's housemates, told Fox31 Denver that the 20-year-old had the name 'Sean' and a picture of a bird tattooed on his arm.
'He told me that it was because they were supposed to get it, and because it kept away all the other "sugar daddies" when they are out partying or at the club,' he said.
According to the arrest affidavit, the accused would go 'hunting' on Grindr, a term described by the 23-year-old as looking for young men and boys who are in need of help.
He told Fox31 Denver that the males living with him played video games, watched Netflix and made ****.
'They don’t realize they’re victims. They think he’s there to help them and they get whatever they want and they don’t have to work or get jobs or participate in normal society,' he added.

JULY 8, 2015
One by one, men identified by political insiders and the Kendall County rumor mill have denied being "Individual A," the mysterious figure who prosecutors say took cash from former House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert to keep quiet about a dark history with him.
They have repeatedly waved off the media, sometimes pointing to others who in turn have told persistent reporters to keep looking.
More than a month after Hastert's indictment, the identity of the person who sources said was a victim of sexual misconduct by Hastert in connection with his years as a teacher and wrestling coach at Yorkville High School remains a secret. The mystery surrounding Individual A begets more questions as the case unfolds.
Does the government regard Individual A as a victim, a witness, or as a planner taking part in an illegal scheme? Or some combination of all three? What did Individual A do with the $1.7 million Hastert allegedly gave him before investigators caught up to the former congressman's activities? And how did the two reach an agreement for Hastert to pay a total of $3.5 million, a staggering sum even for a man who turned to a lucrative lobbying career after decades in public service.
Some legal experts have speculated that Individual A is being treated as a cooperating witness. But prosecutors may not need his testimony to prove their allegation that Hastert illegally took large sums of money out of the bank without reporting it, then lied to the FBI when asked about what he was doing.
The government likely does not need Individual A's cooperation to make its case against Hastert on the bank and lying charges, said Jeff Cramer, a former federal prosecutor who now heads the Chicago office of Kroll, a corporate investigations firm. But information from the recipient of the money does help prosecutors build a more robust story around their case.
"In theory, no, it doesn't matter why one takes out the money, nor why someone lies to the FBI. The fact is, they do it," Cramer said. "However, that part of the tale, if it goes to trial, the jury is going to want to hear ... It does help explain why (Hastert) was so frantically trying to get money out, and after the banks came to him, he continued."
Sources with knowledge of the case have said Hastert made payments to cover up sexual misconduct against Individual A, identified only as a man. For their part, prosecutors have yielded few clues in court paperwork about that person's identity, writing that Individual A lived previously in Yorkville and has known Hastert most of their life. In fact, prosecutors have taken steps to protect Individual A's identity, filing court papers seeking to permanently seal records that could disclose his identity.
In the indictment, prosecutors noted Hastert's early career as a teacher and wrestling coach between 1965 and 1981, which sent the media digging through Yorkville High School yearbooks and knocking on doors of former high school wrestlers now in their 50s and 60s.
Legal experts agree it is likely the clues in the indictment itself are on point.
"The indictment typically will contain language that is relevant to the offense, otherwise a good lawyer is going to be able to strike language from it," said longtime defense attorney Joseph Duffy.
Since the indictment is required to outline the elements of the offense, it seems clear the government is establishing the circumstances under which Individual A was wronged by Hastert, said Duffy, who was previously a high-ranking federal prosecutor.
Allowing witnesses and victims in federal prosecutions to remain anonymous is not uncommon. But few cases share details as intriguing as the Hastert prosecution. Had the news of Individual A come out during Hastert's eight-year tenure as speaker, the case would have been a major Beltway scandal.
Adding to the secrecy surrounding Individual A, and possibly extending anonymity to that person permanently, the judge in the case has granted a prosecutors' motion for a protective order covering information surrounding the case.

I'm American, living on the east coast and I saw this story and it made me wonder about toilet paper around the world:
October 2, 2015
The New York Jets are headed to London well stocked with footballs, helmets, cereals and 350 rolls of American toilet paper.
Apparently the bog-standard rolls in England are too thin for U.S. backsides and this unfortunate shortcoming required the Jets to plan ahead.
So the Jets decided the best plan of attack was to bring a bunch of the thick stuff with them on their trip to face the Miami Dolphins at Wembley this week.
“Some may say that’s a little over the top or whatnot, but it didn’t really cost that much, so why not?” Aaron Degerness, the Jets' senior manager of team operations, told the New York Times.
"We're basically trying to replicate everything that we're doing here over there."
Players can now wipe comfortably, knowing they can do so with an appropriate amount of paper between their hands.

Trump said later Saturday that bringing in more refugees could have long-term effects.
"This could be the ultimate Trojan horse. This one could be written about for a long time," he said at a campaign event in Franklin, Tennessee. "They probably think, 'This is going to be easy. We will send all these ISIS people.' So a big percentage could be them."
"Obama wants to -- listen to this -- he wants to take in 200,000," he added. "You know, 200,000. That's like an army. Now I'm looking the other day. It's all men. Like, where are the women? They're very strong men. Why aren't they back there fighting for their country?"

[quote]There’s a running joke through the pilot of Hulu’s “Difficult People” — the new caustic scripted comedy executive produced by Amy Poehler — that has a big payoff at the end of the episode. It all starts when creator Julie Klausner’s character (she plays a wannabe comedy writer named Julie) fires off a tweet that reads, “I can’t wait for Blue Ivy to be old enough for R. Kelly to piss on her.”
[quote]“You think it’s funny to make jokes about urinating on children?” a woman asks, stunned. “Obviously I don’t, because I took down the tweet,” Julie explains. “You only took it down because you got in trouble!” the woman points out. “Of course I did,” Julie says. “If people loved it, I would have left it up.”
Of course, the FAKE tweet is now being slammed by horrified fraus.

One of Norway’s richest men, Stein Erik Hagen, has come out as gay at the age of 59. Coming out to NRK, he said: ‘I realized that I was gay in adulthood. When I was in my 20s we did not know what it was. We had heard about it, but it was not something we associated ourselves with.’
He was born in July 1956 and the law decriminalizing homosexuality in Norway didn’t come in until he was 16-years-old, he said.
But while he has never been open about his sexuality, Hagen has been a gay rights campaigner for years.
He campaigned for acceptance in the church, investing hundreds of thousands of krone into the fight.
Hagen is worth between Kr16billion and Kr24billion. That’s $2.4billion, €2.1billion to $3.6billion, €3.2billion.
He is a former supermarket owner, and now is chairman of Orkla, a Norwegian conglomerate with 30,000 employees in more than 40 countries and a turnover of Kr61billion ($9.2billion €8.1billion).
He has four children from two marriages. He married his last partner Mille-Marie Treschow in 2004 and they announced they were splitting in 2012.

At least we can now lay rest to the rumor about CGI used in that scene. Cause Julianna confirmed there was a green screen used.

It's just OK. Good CGI. JGL is charming and likeable despite an awful wig. His constant voice overs throughout the film really hurt it. His feets are not pretty but his nipples sure are. There's a bit where he's running around naked on top of the North Tower and we see his pretty ass but it wasn't necessarily is. There is a bit where a cute dark haired guy indicates he might have a crush on Philippe but it's a tiny passing moment. The score by Alan Silvestri is irritating-all fake French jazz for the first half and quasi-religious music when he makes his walk. The use of Fur Elise is nice, though. The Canadian extras and day players in this are OK in the French sequences but woefully inadequate in the NYC ones, particularly the cops who are laughably inauthentic. This might do OK at the box office and maybe get Oscar nominationa for visual effects but that's it.

Stupid question gets an stupider answer. Man, Ann Richards was right. There is a "silver foot-in-mouth" gene in that family. According to video of the back-and-forth at a Conservative Leadership Project forum at Furman University, Jeb was responding to a query about whether prayer in public schools might help to stop these shootings before they happen. His full response:
It’s a—we’re in a difficult time in our country, and I don’t think more government is necessarily the answer to this. I think we need to reconnect ourselves with everybody else. It’s very sad to see, but I resist the notion—and I had this challenge as governor, because we had—look, stuff happens. There’s always a crisis, and the impulse is always to do something, and it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.
What he seems to be trying to say is that the federal government shouldn’t respond to the killings with an attempt to enact stricter gun control. These things happen, you know, and—well, shit—I don’t know, you know?
When a reporter confronted Jeb about the soundbite, he stood by his unfortunate choice of words, except to say that “things” might have been more appropriate than “stuff.” “Explain to me what I said wrong. Things happen all the time.” Well said.

[bold]American Apparel ousts CEO; source says Dov Charney 'will fight like hell' [/bold]
Dov Charney, the controversial CEO of American Apparel, was ousted Wednesday by the company's board of directors, who said the action “grew out of an ongoing investigation into alleged misconduct.”
The board voted to replace Charney as chairman and “notified him of its intent to terminate his employment as President and CEO for cause,” according to a statement.
“This is not easy, but we felt the need to do what we did for the sake of the company,” Allan Mayer, the company’s newly-appointed co-chairman, told The Times. “Our decision to do what we did was not the result of any problems with the company’s operations.”
The termination is a dramatic turn for Charney, who has been dogged by lawsuits and allegations of misconduct for years, but has always served as the public face of the Los Angeles retailer. When reached by phone by a Times reporter, Charney hung up.
Mayer said the board launched an investigation earlier this year after “new information came to light.”
Charney’s behavior problems did not appear to be criminal in nature, but involved his personal conduct with women and poor judgement, said a source familiar with the matter.
Mayer said he expects some critics to question why the board didn’t act sooner. But Mayer said, “a board can’t make decisions on the basis of rumors and stories in newspapers.”
The board voted unanimously to terminate Charney on Wednesday after its annual meeting, the source said.
“He was totally taken by surprise, which is part of the problem,” the source said. “He’s going to fight like hell to get this company back, but he won’t succeed."

THere is this duo of skinny, acne infested 20 year olds at my gym and they come and never leave the locker room. They inhabit the sauna and whirlpool for hours and stare at anyone who has been upstairs working on weights. Im thinking we should take up a pool and get them a trainer so they can actually go lift something and put on some sort of modest male muscle shape. Their legs are like toothpicks. Is that normal?

I need to loose about 20lbs. I was always a very naturally slim person until I turned 40 (I'm 43 now). Since then, I have put on some extra weight, and I am desperate to lose it before I get even heavier. I've tried a few diets in the past, (Weight Watchers, South Beach and Atkins). I don't want to count points or calories all day long, and I hate feeling hungry. Any suggestions?

Women absolutely should not be molested or raped if they dress provocatively. But I've never understood the Erin Brockovich argument: that you can dress in skin tight clothing, short skirts, and tops displaying low cleavage, and then if men look at your boobs, they're pigs. Why are you wearing tight clothing and showing off your breasts and your legs if you don't want people to look?
Men who wear skimpy or revealing clothing do not object when they attract looks and attention.

I keep getting tweets and emails from Madonna fans who’ve seen big “bald spots” at her Rebel Heart shows.
Well, Madison Square Garden and the Barclays Center are going to look a lot like the top of my own head starting tonight. That is, unless StubHub can unload the hundreds of seats they have in their inventories.
Seats for all three shows are aplenty, and at reasonable prices, in all sections. They are also available in quantities. Want to take seven or eight people? You can, and you can sit anywhere.
Secondary market ticket sellers obviously overestimated the demand for Rebel Heart seats. Maybe there will be a big walk up business. I’d go tonight, but I want to see Eliot Sumner at Pianos in the Lower East Side.

‘Star Trek: Voyager’ Actress Jennifer Lien Arrested for Indecent Exposure
September 15, 2015 | 02:51PM PT
Alex Stedman, News Editor, Variety.com
“Star Trek: Voyager” actress Jennifer Lien was arrested and has been in custody for two weeks after allegedly exposing herself in front of several children, Roane County police confirm.
Lien has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure in an incident that happened on Aug. 31 in Harriman, Tenn.
A neighbor of Lien’s made a complaint to police after Lien began a tirade due to a crying child, and during her tirade, exposed her breasts and buttocks. The neighbor stated that she had three children in the yard while this was happening.
According to a Roane County Sheriff’s Office report, when police appeared on Sept. 3 with a warrant, Lien was not wearing clothes and resisted arrest.
“The offender stated she wasn’t going any f–king where and we needed to leave her alone,” reads the police report by responding officer Billy Walker.
Lien also threatened to have the officers shot and killed, says the police report. She was transported to the patrol car and taken to the Roane County Jail, and is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 7.
The actress appeared on “Star Trek: Voyager” from 1995 to 2000 as Kes. Her other credits include “American History X,” “Accidents Don’t Happen,” “Men in Black: The Series,” “Battle Force: Andromeda” and voice work in “Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride.”
This isn’t Lien’s first run-in with the law. In April, she was arrested and charged with evading arrest, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault.
