Russia Warns of ‘Painful’ Response If Trump Backs U.S. Sanctions

Russia threatened to retaliate against new sanctions passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, saying they made it all but impossible to achieve the Trump administration’s goal of improved relations.

The measures push U.S.-Russia ties into uncharted territory and “don’t leave room for the normalization of relations” in the foreseeable future, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Wednesday, according to the Interfax news service.

Hope “is dying” for improved relations because the scale of “the anti-Russian consensus in Congress makes dialogue impossible and for a long time,” Konstantin Kosachyov, chairman of the international affairs committee in Russia’s upper house of parliament, said on Facebook. Russia should prepare a response to the sanctions that’s “painful for the Americans,” he said.

The bill, passed by a vote of 419-3 on Tuesday, would strengthen sanctions against Russia less than three weeks after President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin held their first official meeting at the Group of 20 summit. The measure, which now goes to the Senate, would let Congress block any effort by Trump to unilaterally weaken sanctions imposed under the Obama administration for Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections and its support for separatists in Ukraine. The White House has sent mixed signals about whether Trump will sign the bill.

"Skinny Repeal"

Is this a viable option?

CNN had a really good diagram up on screen, showing what the GOP will be voting on this week.

1 - Repeal and Replace (FAILED)

2 - Repeal and Delay (up next). Allows Congress 2 years to come up with a replacement for Obamacare

3 - Skinny Repeal - End the individual and employer mandates for healthcare, as well as the medical device tax.

4 - Graham/Cassidy Amendment

Option 3 seems like we'd still have Obamacare, but without the penalty for not having health insurance. Is that good or bad?

I'm completely 100% in favor of Obamacare, but should the republicans vote in force against the law, would a "skinny repeal" be a viable option?

Dlers who were bullied inn school...

Were you ever bullied in your adult life? I'm wondering how many people find that their poor treatment is a problem that has followed them throughout their lives. I have a cousin who was bullied when we were in school and I always wondered what it was about her that made it a constant problem in school, but no where else. She was very pretty and her family moved often, so perhaps that had something to do with it?

Vegan Documentary has Left me Pretty Confused

So apparently:

- Carbs are fine. It's fat that is the problem, since it clogs your arteries. (This feels like 1989) But, your body can handle carbs by turning it into glycogen in the liver - and no this does not raise the risk of diabetes. Instead, eating meat raises the risk of diabetes and causes inflammation and heart disease based on studies of tens of thousands of people's diets who developed diabetes.

- Eggs are bad (again) The "eggs are good for you" studies all have some funding by the egg industry. Although they don't raise serum cholesterol, the cholesterol in the egg still finds its way to your arteries. It has to go somewhere.

- Processed meats are listed in the same class of carcinogens as cigarettes (hence the image below). Grilled meats are just as bad.

- Dairy from cows is very bad for humans, which I have heard & ignored before. In the doc, they mention how it is too high in protein (like 8% vs 1% in human breast milk) and cheese is even worse. Interestingly, cheese has has opioid-like compounds in it that make people like it so much. Dairy consumption is linked to many types of cancer (30% increase in breast cancer among women who eat a lot of dairy), yet groups like Susan G. Komen Race for the cure happily take money from companies and put their ribbon on yogurt.

- All protein that is necessary to live is in plants. They are the only things that can convert nitrogen to protein, not animals. You don't need to eat any animals to have enough protein. Vegan bodybuilders exist.

- (Gratuitous images of factory farms - of course - making the whole thing disturbing). North Carolina is full of pig shit and other carcinogens due to all the factory farms and the inability to do anything with the pig shit... which ends up in the ground water & people near pig farms all basically have cancer. These scenes make you never want to eat pig products ever again.

- The American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, and American Cancer Society are all funded by food companies from Cargill to Pepsi to Dairy companies (though they overstate this claim... the funding is only a fraction of the total)

If you watch this, the first half will seem ridiculous - given all the info we've gotten in the last 10-15 years. (Also, the narrator sounds like a surfer bro idiot). By the end, though, it sort of makes a case.

I don't want to live to 100 but I do want to lose weight, and that's what made me want to watch this. I just can't imagine going vegan would change anything except for calorie restriction (since it's hard to eat 1000 calories of broccoli) - and then result in weight loss. Most vegans are skinny-but-flabby anyway.

Gay rights opponent picked as ambassador to Netherlands by Trump

Gay rights opponent picked as ambassador to Netherlands by Trump

Nomination of Pete Hoekstra, one of Tea Party’s founders, raises eyebrows in first country to legalise gay marriage

Daniel Boffey in Brussels, Wednesday 26 July 2017 10.42 EDT

A gay rights opponent who was once accused of appearing in a racist campaign advert and has claimed that refugees pose a threat to Europe has been named by Donald Trump as his choice for US ambassador to the Netherlands.

The nomination of the former congressman Pete Hoekstra, one of the founders of the conservative Tea Party movement, has raised eyebrows in the Netherlands, a bastion of liberal values and the first country in the world to legalise gay marriage.

The Dutch newspaper Der Volkskrant observed that Trump had “put a Dutchman in the Netherlands – but it is a Dutchman from the Netherlands of the 50s”.

Hoekstra, who represented Michigan’s 2nd congressional district in the House of Representatives from 1993 to 2011, was born in the Netherlands but left when he was three years old.

He will need to be approved by the Dutch government and confirmed by the US Senate in order to take up the post.

As a Republican politician, he has spoken out against gay marriage and as a congressman consistently voted to limit women’s right to abortion. He is also a strident supporter of the death penalty.

Hoekstra caused a stir when running for the Senate in 2012 when he appeared in a campaign advert featuring a young Chinese women with a thick accent cycling by some rice fields thanking the US for borrowing heavily from her country.

The Asian & Pacific Islander American Vote group described the advert as “very disturbing” and claimed it had been designed to stir up “anti-Asian sentiment”.

Hoekstra also once claimed there was chaos in the Netherlands due to a “secret jihad” in Europe. “Cars are being set on fire. Politicians are being set on fire,” he said. “Yes, there are no-go zones in the Netherlands.” He has also spoken in recent years at congresses of the anti-Islam American Freedom Alliance, where the far-right Geert Wilders was also once a guest.

The Dutch liberal MEP Sophie in ‘t Veld said: “We are looking forward with interest to cooperating with Mr Hoekstra. We will certainly remind him his roots lie in a country that values tolerance, equality and inclusion.

“We are proud of being the first country worldwide to have legislated for same-sex marriage. We are proud to have the lowest abortion rates in the world, and it is safe and legal.

“We are proud in our country that people of immigrant origin can be mayor of a big city or speaker of a parliament. We expect the representative of our friend and ally the United States to fully and wholly respect our values and to show that respect in his all his acts and words.”

When asked in an interview in 2006 with Volkskrant whether he feared the Netherlands had become a modern day “Sodom and Gomorrah”, Hoekstra denied it.

“I do not feel like that at all. I’d like to come here,” he said. “It is clear that the Netherlands has made a different choice in a number of areas than the USA. You must respect that as a foreign politician, even though you have a different opinion.”

Warner Bros. thinks Affleck is too old and fat to be Batman

[quote]a source with knowledge of the situation says that the studio is working on plans to usher out Affleck’s Batman — gracefully, addressing the change in some shape or form in one of the upcoming DC films.

[quote]Exactly when and how that might happen has yet to be determined, but it would be wise to bet against Affleck starring in The Batman. He has already stepped away from directing the film and Reeves is dropping the script that Affleck wrote with D.C. Entertainment’s Geoff Johns.

[quote]Affleck will turn 45 in August, so he would be pushing 50 before The Batman arrives in theaters. If Reeves makes a trilogy, Affleck would be in his mid-50s at best by the time that’s done. Maybe Tom Cruise could pull that off, but Affleck’s body hasn’t exactly been a temple.

[quote]And while male stars have been able to stretch their action-film relevance further in an age when there are fewer bankable young stars (Robert Downey Jr. is 52 and going strong as Iron Man), studios favor the fresh-faced — look what happened with Spider-Man, successfully rebooted with 21-year-old Tom Holland. (Affleck also just dropped out of the Netflix project Triple Frontier, and it’s not clear what his next movie will be. His reps declined to comment.)

Bette Midler "It was STUPID to say no to Misery"

‘Misery’ — I turned that down because I didn’t want to saw off someone’s foot, even though the role won an Oscar,”

Ms. Midler said of Kathy Bates’s turn in the adaptation of the Stephen King thriller. “It was stupid to say no to those pictures.”

“As an actor you’re supposed to take jobs that will challenge you or force fans to see you in a different light. By the ’90s I wasn’t really an actor anymore. I was someone who went on the road with these gigantic concerts. I got so far away from what they told you in acting class: Do something different. Producers kept offering me the ‘Sister Act’ movie, but I said, ‘My fans don’t want to see me in a wimple.’

Remember "Ghetto Tours"? And the outrage they got?

New York company offering tours of Bronx neighborhoods has shut down after officials objected to its advertising that claimed to give visitors "a ride through a real New York City 'ghetto'," according to a statement from Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.

The tour's controversial description states that when thinking of the Bronx, people envision when the borough "was notorious for drugs, gangs, crime and murders." It promises to take visitors on a three-hour journey into "this diverse and mysterious borough called the Bronx."

The website for the tour company, Real Bronx Tours, was no longer accessible on Thursday, but an advertisement for the tour is still viewable on NewYorkPass.com, a site intended for purchasing tourism tickets.The letter, addressed to Real Bronx Tours company owner Michael Myers, urges the company to stop profiting off of a tour that paints the borough "as a haven for poverty and crime, while mocking everything from our landmarks to the less fortunate members of our community who are availing themselves of food assistance programs."

"Using the Bronx to sell a so-called 'ghetto' experience to tourists is completely unacceptable and the highest insult to the communities we represent," the letter read.

In a second statement from Diaz on Tuesday, he announced that in response, the tour company had decided to end its "inaccurate and disrespectful tours."

"I am relieved that this company has listened to the overwhelming complaints of community members, as well as public officials, who were outraged and sickened," the statement read.

Representatives of Real Bronx Tours did not return CNN's calls seeking comment.

‘God’s Own Country’ Trailer: A Taut Gay Romance With Verité Intimacy Set In The Yorkshire Countryside

[quote]Francis Lee's debut feature is the rare gay film that does not sacrifice artistry for representation.

[quote]The sexual tension mingles with the mud and sweat of a hard day’s farm work in Francis Lee’s stunnign debut film, “God’s Own Country,” which released its first official trailer today. The movie played Sundance earlier this year to rave reviews, with its country setting and restrained storytelling earning inevitable comparisons to “Brokeback Mountain.” But “God’s Own Country” has the benefit of two fresh young faces in the leads (Josh O’Connor and Alec Secareanu) to fully inhabit the roles with no prior associations, as well as the freedom to buck Hollywood tropes. Including that pesky one where gay films have to end in tragedy.

[quote]The film is set in the bleak but beautiful Yorkshire countryside, where young Johnny (O’Connor) carries the burden of managing his family’s livelihood int he wake of his father’s stroke. To help with lambing season, the family hires a Romanian migrant worker named Gheorghe (Secareanu). While Johnny is well-versed in soliciting random sex at livestock auctions, he isn’t prepared for the intensity of real human connection. But when the two head up the mountain to birth the lambs, things get very muddy.

[quote]Beautifully rendered and engaging from beginning to end, “God’s Own Country” is the kind of gay film more people should be making. The almost documentary-style farm scenes elevate it way beyond more conventional gay dramas, and it doesn’t make the mistake of confusing tragedy with quality.

Tired of gay men telling queer stories

The Black Youth Project

Why I’m tired of white gay men telling queer stories POSTED ON MARCH 20, 2017 BY HARI ZIYAD IN CULTURE, ENTERTAINMENT, FEATURED ARTICLE /t 2 A few days ago, it was announced that Ryan Murphy, the mind behind queer favorites like Glee and American Horror Story, is developing a show slated for 2018 called Pose that will explore 80s LGBTQ ball culture. According to Deadline, the series “examines the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in New York City: the emergence of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.”

I hate it preemptively.

It’s not that I don’t believe this is a culture worth exploring or that the show could have no entertainment value. Murphy is a talented storyteller who had little difficulty drawing me into the worlds he weaved in Glee and American Crime Story. I have no doubt Pose will bring an equally new and refreshing approach to the television experience. But I was immediately reminded of all the ways white gay men use ideas of queerness universalized around their own experiences to tell our stories that are ultimately harmful to other queer people like myself.

There is a thin line between entertainment, appropriation, and historical revisionism when it comes to who gets to tell queer stories and why. Two years ago, when Roland Emmerich released Stonewall, a fictionalized account of the riots most recognize as the start of the modern gay rights movement, the film’s obvious whitewashing and erasure of major trans Black and Latinx figures did not go unnoticed.

Stonewall was only a small part of a legacy of cisgender white gay men taking up space in the LGBTQ community with no regard for anyone else, a legacy to which Murphy himself has willingly contributed.

As many have already pointed out, Murphy’s shows have had a consistent problem with anti-Black portrayals of Black women specifically, perhaps most noticeably on American Horror Story and Scream Queens. As Kerensa Cadenas writes for Complex, “(Murphy) knows what he’s doing—there’s always a wink, a hair flip, a smirk to acknowledge the tongue-in-cheek nature of his jokes—but that doesn’t lessen the vileness of these moments on his shows. In fact, it makes it feel even worse because as the audience, we’re supposed to just accept them.

But the problem with Pose is bigger than one person or a few problematic portrayals. Ball culture was created and driven by Black and Brown queer folks to provide protection from the violence that necessitates that far too many Black and Brown LGBTQ people to seek homes outside of their own. Within the scene, queer youth, many of them homeless, create new family structures and support systems that they might not find anywhere else. It is just as much a safe haven from the racism of white queer people as it is from the straight people in their families and communities in which they grew up.

LGBTQ stories are much bigger than what white gay men live, and much bigger than many can even envision. But because of white gay men’s experience with marginalization on behalf of their queerness, it is far too often assumed that they can speak to the marginalization of other queer people as well. This ignores how whiteness and maleness intersect to encourage white gay male violence against those even more marginalized within the LGBTQ community.

Why/how did Judy lose the 1954 BA Oscar?

It was her big comeback role and widely considered then and now as her best work. I believe she was considered the favorite to win at least somewhat but then Grace Kelly swept away with the trophy. I mean, it's not a total surprise that Kelly won - she was in three huge films that year, she was expanding as a dramatic actress and (superficially) she was a gorgeous, young blonde and who doesn't like those? I've read that Judy supposedly only lost by a handful of votes and that when A Star is Born was a bomb the studio didn't back Garland or give her a publicity boost or whatever. Or were they just unconcerned about Judy in general (not uncommon)? And Judy really wanted that Oscar - who knows it could have put her on a new track and steered her to a less destructive path.

(I also heard a vicious story that Judy called Grace on the phone and called her a bitch for stealing the award.)

Bill Clinton & James Patterson Courting Steven Spielberg & George Clooney to Adapt 'President' Book

A heated battle is brewing in Hollywood for film rights to the former president and best-selling author's upcoming novel.

Hollywood will be getting a visit from one of the most high-profile names in politics this week as a battle begins to brew for the film rights to one of the biggest literary properties of the year.

Former President Bill Clinton and best-selling author James Patterson will be meeting producers to talk about an adaptation of their novel The President Is Missing, due out in June 2018.

CAA's Richard Lovett is handling the rights to the project, which is being treated as a top-secret property. Sources say a 10-page proposal was sent out to buyers and top producers on Monday. It was sent via an expiring link and watermarked. Not everyone who received the proposal will be invited to have a meeting with Clinton and Patterson, however.

Sources say that Clinton and Patterson themselves will meet with interested producers this week. J.J. Abrams, Steven Spielberg and George Clooney are among those who will be taking in-person meetings with the pair. Producer Steve Bing, known to be a close friend of Clinton, is also said to be getting a meeting.

The project would be the first book-to-film adaptation for Clinton, who has written three books since leaving office in January 2001. Patterson has seen five of his books adapted for the big screen and has served as a producer on the three most recent films. Another eight of his stories have been adapted for TV, most recently the 2015-17 CBS series Zoo. He is working on a CBS pilot, Instinct, based on his book Murder Games.

Plot details on The President Is Missing are scarce, but a May 8 statement announcing the book promised "insider details that only a president can know." Added the 42nd POTUS, "Drawing on what I know about the job, life in the White House and the way Washington works has been a lot of fun."

I just find it strange that a man who is supposedly in a relationship (Stefanie Powers) can lie there dead without his girlfriend checking up on him. Apparently they didn't live together either. Is there anymore story as to what their real relationship was or is that normal in Hollywood?

Loved him in Sabrina.

Datalounge, do you ever go.. ethnic for breakfast?

A friend recently took me out for Congee. Mine had a wonderful "umami" savoriness, rich pork belly, sous vide egg, fried garlic and bok choy. I found it a bit too heavy to enjoy first thing, but it was delicious. And it got me thinking, we seem to reserve "ethnic" cuisine for lunch or dinner. Do you ever go out for an 'ethnic' breakfast? If so, what do you enjoy?

And, no, I'm not talking about breakfast burritos -- not that there's anything wrong with that deliciousness.

Sam Heughan Gay Scottish Actor, Lead in Outlander [ will the shamzie fauxmance continue?] -Part 18

He pings to high heaven. One year ago, Heughan and his rumored bf -Luke Neal- spent over a month travelling together around the world.

8-13-71 TV Colum Chgo Trib

Mario Thomas of ABC-TV's That Girl series and Lynda Day of the same network s forthcoming The Silent Force are not only two of the most attractive young women on TV but two of the most right thinking.

On my recent visit to hollywood both told me they have ! flatly refused to wear the midi on camera or off, during the coming TV season.

"I hate them," said Marlo Thomas. 'They're so ugly."

"They look just awful," said Miss Day. "I'd never wear one.

Miss Thomas and Miss Day are not alone among TV's lovelies in their convictions and that is good to hear.

In the Aug. 15 issue of TV Guide Dr. George Weinberg, a clinical psychologist and therapist of good reputation, says of the situation comedies: "The honest ethic of the characters . . . their devotion to value, their ability to express affection and love for one another . . . are important to us." He is talking about their value as examples.

If that is so, then perhaps American women will also be inclined to follow the lead of women they see on TV with regard to fashion.

Any woman who wishes to resist the midi-which, of course, Is a homosexual plot to demean women and to make them pay for their lost femininity-will stand on firm ground when she says, "Until Mario Thomas and Lynda Day give in, I won't either."

“CNN made the decision not to bring her back,” Cooper said at Friday’s event. “I had nothing to do with it, but I certainly understand why they made that decision.”

“People were assuming I was somehow responsible for this and I just felt I should point out that I actually think this is pretty important as somebody who works overseas and, you know, journalists get beheaded and this is not a joke,” he said.

Senate Republican plan to repeal, replace Obamacare fails to get enough votes

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A plan to repeal and replace Obamacare that Senate Republicans have been working on for months failed to get the 60 votes needed for approval Tuesday night.

The vote was 43 in favor and 57 against. Nine Republicans voted against the measure.

The plan would have made deep cuts to Medicaid, the health insurance program for the poor, and reduced Obamacare subsidies to lower-income people to help them defray the cost of health insurance.

It was the first of many expected votes this week on repealing or replacing elements of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law.

Trump, in angry Twitter spree, declares ‘the complete power to pardon’

President Trump went on a Twitter tirade Saturday morning, lashing out at multiple targets, including Obamacare, Hillary Clinton, two newspapers, his own administration and the investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Notably, he announced that “all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon.”

The Washington Post reported Friday that, according to a source, Trump has asked his team about “his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself” in connection with the Russia inquiry. Another source told the Post that “Trump’s lawyers have been discussing the president’s pardoning powers among themselves.”

Constitutional lawyer Laurence Tribe and two former White House ethics lawyers contended Friday that presidents can’t pardon themselves.

Trump’s Saturday Twitter flurry began with an attack against the Post. The paper reported the day before that, according to intelligence intercepts, Attorney General Jeff Sessions discussed campaign issues with Russia’s ambassador. Sessions has repeatedly denied having such discussions with Russian officials.

“A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post,this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions,” Trump tweeted. “These illegal leaks, like Comey’s, must stop!” (“Amazon” refers to the Post’s owner, Jeff Bezos, who founded the online retail giant.)

The commander in chief’s Twitter feed quickly moved on to attack the New York Times.

“The Failing New York Times foiled U.S. attempt to kill the single most wanted terrorist,Al-Baghdadi.Their sick agenda over National Security,” wrote Trump, who earlier this week granted the Times a wide-ranging interview.

His tweet was apparently referring to a Fox News report on Gen. Tony Thomas’ comments the day before at the Aspen Security Forum. Fox reported that Thomas, who heads the Special Operations Command, said the U.S. military had a “very good lead” in 2015 on Islamic State terror group leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

“Unfortunately, it was leaked in a prominent national newspaper about a week later and that lead went dead,” Thomas recalled, according to the report.

Those comments seemed to refer to a summer 2015 Times story, in which the paper reported that the U.S. gleaned a trove of information about ISIS from a Delta Force commando raid.

“The Pentagon raised no objections with the Times before publishing the story in 2015 and no senior American official ever complained publicly about it until now,” a Times spokesperson told Yahoo News on Saturday, adding that the paper has asked the White House “to clarify the tweet.”

Trump’s Saturday Twitter tirade moved on to Clinton, his 2016 foe.

“So many people are asking why isn’t the A.G. or Special Council [sic] looking at the many Hillary Clinton or Comey crimes. 33,000 e-mails deleted?” the commander in chief asked. “What about all of the Clinton ties to Russia, including Podesta Company, Uranium deal, Russian Reset, big dollar speeches etc.”

Sessions recused himself in March after the Post revealed that he met twice with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the campaign. In his confirmation hearings, Sessions had insisted he had no such contacts. Since then, he has maintained that he never met with “Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign.” The Post’s Friday report suggested that also was not true.

Trump has repeatedly complained about the Russia probe, which is now overseen by the Justice Department’s special counsel, Robert Mueller, who was named to the investigation after Trump fired James Comey as FBI director. (Trump has misspelled “counsel” in two prior tweets as well.)

The president has also repeatedly attempted to deflect the spotlight of the Russia investigation back onto Clinton and her campaign, though Clinton was defeated over seven months ago.

Continuing the effort, Trump exclaimed Saturday, “My son Donald openly gave his e-mails to the media & authorities whereas Crooked Hillary Clinton deleted (& acid washed) her 33,000 e-mails!”

Gay but attracted to women?

Let me start by saying that I don't want to provoke anyone. This is only a personal experience and I'd like to share it because it does make me feel uncomfortable.

So, I have recently realized that I'm experiencing a mild attraction to women. It's something that had never happened before, and I'm not happy about it mainly because I really like being gay. The thing that annoys me the most is that it comes and goes (it doesn't happen that frequently), but when it arrives it can be pretty intense, and it has occurred increasingly frequently over the course of the last few months.

I have thought that maybe it has to do with hormonal changes brought about with age (I'm in my early thirties), and I wonder how to "correct" it, not because I have anything against women, but because I've always been happy as I was and this isn't a welcome change. I don't really have any interest in women at all sexually or romantically, but on some days I see a particular woman and I get the same feeling of excitement and lust that I normally get when I see a guy I really like.

What surprises me the most is that it had never happened in the past (maybe two or three times over the last two years or so), and I never really minded because it wasn't intense at all, and we all react to beauty. But these feelings have become slightly more frequent over the last year, and since I am rather unhappy about them, I do notice them more when they come, and this just makes me feel really annoyed.

As I have said before, I don't mind women - they are OK. I have two sisters and female friends and I get along really well with them, but it was never sexual at all. Now, I occasionally surprise myself checking out co-workers and a few random women on the street, and it's weird and unsettling. My attraction to men hasn't diminished at all, by the way. It's just that it seems to have "extended" to a territory to which I'd never gone before, and it kinda sucks.

To add some context, I have been single for the last three years and I really crave a stable relationship, but all the guys I meet appear to be assholes and I have had problems with cheating boyfriends in the past. There's also a co-worker I really like who is also gay (and obviously, a guy), but I'm weary of pursuing anything with someone at work and he is really promiscuous, so I'm not sure I should pursue anything with him...

So yes. Is it hormonal? Is it that I'm just desperate for affection and looking for it where I don't really want, or need to find it? Could it be that I find women more relatable emotionally, because they are easy to communicate to and always talk about monogamy?

I don't know. I certainly don't want a relationship with a woman because I just see them as friends and the sort of people with whom you can have a "sisterly" relationship with (in the brother/sister kind of way), but as I said before the attraction is more physical, and it disappears for long periods, but then comes back very strongly for a couple of days before going away again.

More than anything, it's annoying, because as I have said before, I am happy as a gay man in spite of all the relationship drama I've been through in the past.

So, I would really welcome constructive comments and well, a solution of sorts, because as I have said before, this is an annoyance.

Thanks.

Was Mia Farrow considered VERY PRETTY or beautiful in her youth?

That aspect about her always seems to be underplayed.

I think she was beautiful.

& I think she remained very pretty for a very long time.

Maybe her strangeness marred the beautiful aspect.

In her book, she said when her mother first saw her on Peyton Place she said she "passed for pretty with make-up on". She was better than that.

She posted the photo @ link on her instagram this week - which is what made me think about this.

What did you think of Mia's looks?

Ann and Nancy Wilson haven't spoken to each other since October

Nancy's 16-year-old twin sons were assaulted by Ann's husband on her tour bus:

"Nancy's then-16-year-old twin sons asked their uncle, Ann's husband Dean Wetter, if they could see Ann's new tour bus. Wetter brought the teenagers and Nancy's stepdaughter to the vehicle, but asked them to keep the door closed so the dogs on the bus couldn't escape. When the twins exited the bus after the visit, the first one out left the door open for the other two behind him, enraging Wetter.

According to a detective's report in court documents obtained by Rolling Stone, "Dean became immediately upset and began calling [one of the teens] names … slap[ping] him on the back of the head, causing pain." The teen asked why he hit him, with Wetter responding by "punching [the teenager] in the back of the head with a closed fist, causing [him] to be stunned and see stars." After Wetter grabbed him by the throat, Nancy's other son intervened. Wetter grabbed the other teen by the throat and, according to a police report, began "squeezing [the other son's throat] to the point that [he] could not breathe. [He] said that he was unable to breathe or talk and that he feared for his life and felt pain in his neck." Police arrested the then-66-year-old Wetter, charging him with two counts of assault, one felony and one misdemeanor."

Lead star in Atomic Blonde wants bisexuals normalized

The 41-year-old beauty also thinks bisexual love is under-represented in movies.

Asked whether it was important for her 'Atomic Blonde' character to be bisexual, Charlize said: "Why not? It should be normalised by now. It's something not represented enough in cinema."

Earlier this month, meanwhile, Charlize admitted to having gone on a date with a "really cool dude".

The Hollywood actress - who ended her engagement to Sean Penn in June 2016 - confirmed she is back in the dating game, but refused to reveal the identity of her new man.

Charlize shared: "I went on a date maybe, like, a month ago. I had a great date, I've got to tell you. I had an incredible date. This guy really impressed me.

"We went for a nine-mile hike in the middle of the night. It was a full moon. But I was really impressed. It was fun."

Charlize remained coy about her unnamed man, but admitted she enjoyed spending time with him, describing their date as "fun".

She explained: "I'm not going to say where we met, but we ended up going for a walk ... It was just really fun. He was super-funny. "I think he's just a really cool dude. It was super private ... that's what made it so much fun, too."

The Amazing World Of Luke Evans 20

Luke Evans is still filming The Alienist in Hungary and he may have found more than work to occupy his time and thoughts. Speculation is that he's been seeing a Hungarian restaurant owner named Hubert recently. They took a break with friends recently on a trip to Lake Balaton and they were in London together this month as well. Unless Hubert agrees to leave his businesses, family and friends behind in Budapest, this may be either a summer dalliance or a long distance romance. The other possibility is that they're just friends. Stay tuned.

Now, do try to keep calm and carry on.

Usher paid $1.1 million to a woman he infected with HERPES!!!!! (allegedly)

This sex scandal won’t be going away.

Usher paid out $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit with a stylist who claimed the pop star infected her with herpes, court papers show.

The documents were first published Wednesday by Radar Online, but they appear to date to late 2012.

The 38-year-old “Confessions” singer, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, was diagnosed with herpes in 2009 or 2010, according to the court papers. But nonetheless, he had unprotected sex with the claimant without confessing that he was carrying the virus, the papers add.

The law is clear in California: It is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an STD. Usher allegedly did just that when he told the victim he had tested negative for the virus, despite a “greenish discharge” from his penis, the court papers say.

“Believing Raymond’s statements that (the discharge) had been nothing and cleared up, (she) continued her relationship,” the legal docs said.

The claimant was later diagnosed with herpes, complete with vaginal sores, fevers and chills, she alleged in papers.

Usher paid some of the victim’s medical bills in 2012 — $2,754.40 in all, the court papers show. That’s when he also had his doctor call the woman to tell her that the singer did indeed carry the herpes virus.

He had, apparently, for many years. The legal documents noted that Usher was “exposed to herpes” in 2009 or 2010, around when he finalized his divorce to Tameka Foster after she accused him of cheating.

The singer married his current wife, Grace Miguel, in 2015.

The Daily News reached out to the R&B singer, but a request for comment was not immediately returned.

In the U.S., one out of every six people ages 14 to 49 years have genital herpes, which is spread through vaginal, oral or anal sex. It can be spread to sexual partners, even when people who have it show no symptoms.

LINKIN PARK SINGER COMMITS SUICIDE BY HANGING

Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has committed suicide ... TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM. Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives. The singer struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. He had said in the past he had considered committing suicide because he had been abused as a child by an older male.

Chester was very close with Chris Cornell, who himself committed suicide by hanging last May. The band has had a string of hits over the years, including "Faint," "In the End" and "Crawling." Linkin Park crossed music genres, collaborating with Jay-Z.

The band's album, "Meteroa," was one of the biggest alternative albums in music history. Bennington was 41. RIP

Olivia de Havilland sues FX over unauthorized use of her identity in 'Feud: Bette and Joan'

It's "Feud: Olivia and FX."

On the eve of her 101st birthday, two-time Oscar winner Olivia de Havilland has announced she is suing FX and producer Ryan Murphy over the unauthorized use of her identity in "Feud: Bette and Joan," according to a statement released Friday morning.

The miniseries about the longtime rivalry between actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford featured Catherine Zeta-Jones as de Havilland — the "Gone With the Wind" star who was a confidant of Davis' and a commentator throughout the eight-episode show.

De Havilland, who resides in France and turns 101 on Saturday, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against FX Networks, LLC and Ryan Murphy Productions "based on the unauthorized commercial use of Dame Olivia's name and identity in the FX hit series," according to her attorneys, Suzelle M. Smith and Don Howarth of Howarth & Smith, noting that all the other real-life players who are featured in the series are dead.

Speaking on a panel at the Television Critics Assn.'s winter press tour, Zeta-Jones was asked whether she had ever met de Havilland.

"No, I didn't, unfortunately. I was going to try and get to see her. I was in the south of France this last summer. Then, unfortunately, there was the horrible tragedy that happened there in Nice, so I didn't get the chance to," Zeta-Jones said in January.

"Miss de Havilland was not asked by FX for permission to use her name and identity and was not compensated for such use," her attorneys said in a statement to The Times. "Further, the FX series puts words in the mouth of Miss de Havilland which are inaccurate and contrary to the reputation she has built over an 80-year professional life, specifically refusing to engage in gossip mongering about other actors in order to generate media attention for herself."

The suit accuses FX and its partners of appropriating de Havilland's name and identity and placing her in "a false light to sensationalize the series and to promote their own businesses" while ignoring her interests entirely.

"A living celebrity has the right to protect her name and identity from unauthorized, false, commercial exploitation under both common law and the specific 'right to publicity' statute in California," Smith said, asserting that, "FX was wrong to ignore Miss de Havilland and proceed without her permission for its own profit."

Her team plans to file a motion seeking an expedited trial date because of de Havilland's age.

De Havilland is no stranger to legal proceedings. In 1943, she filed a landmark lawsuit against Warner Bros. that resulted in the collapse of the binding long-term contract system and put the de Havilland Law on the books.

FX declined to comment ont he lawsuit and Murphy's team did not immediately respond to The Times' request for comment Friday.

Brain disease CTE found in 87 of 91 NFL players tested

The brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy, believed to be caused by repeated head trauma, has been found in 87 of 91 deceased former NFL players tested, according to researchers. See the most-read stories in Sports this hour >>

"People think that we're blowing this out of proportion, that this is a very rare disease and that we’re sensationalizing it," Dr. Ann McKee, chief of neurophysiology at the VA Boston Healthcare System and director of the lab where the tests were conducted, told PBS' "Frontline." "My response is that where I sit, this is a very real disease. We have had no problem identifying it in hundreds of players."

In research conducted by the Department of Veteran Affairs and Boston University, 40% of those testing positive for CTE were offensive or defensive linemen, according to the report.

Though those linemen aren't typically subjected to the big concussion-causing hits sustained by other players on the field, it's the consistent minor collisions that could pose a greater risk to players, according to the research.

The disease has been also been found in 79% of those tested who played football at any level going back to high school. For former NFL players tested, that number rises to 96%.

Signs of the disease's existence in living players can be identified with brain scans but CTE cannot be officially diagnosed until after death.

The suicides of Hall of Fame linebacker Junior Seau in 2012 and former Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson in 2011, who were both diagnosed with CTE following their shooting deaths, helped raise awareness of the neurodegenerative disease.

When good TV goes bad: how Game of Thrones became a throng of dire old vice

This time last year, I stupidly put my Game of Thrones beer mug in the dishwasher. When I took it out, the words “Winter is coming” and the show’s logo had disappeared. Only the image of a snarling direwolf remained. It was a sign.

Later that day, I read the recap to the denouement of last season’s finale, which posed the following conundrum: “The question now is how much has Sansa learnt – will she decide it’s better to be the lady of Winterfell and the power behind Jon’s throne ... or will she listen to Littlefinger’s attempts to spread discord?” No, I realised, that was not the question. The question was: why I had ever cared about this guff? How had I cared for so long about which claimant would install their derriere on the Iron Throne, be they Ye Lannisters of the Westerlands, Ye Greyjoys of the Iron Islands, or Ye Lentil-Weaving Guardian Readers of Islington North?

I’d been suckered into the franchise five years earlier by a scene adapted straight from George RR Martin’s original novel. A sweet little boy, Bran Stark, was climbing a tower when he saw something he shouldn’t have. He glimpsed Jaime and Cersei, smouldering Lannister siblings, in an incestuous clinch. Jaime pushed the boy to the stones yards below, which is why Bran spent the rest of the drama being carried around by a linguistically challenged giant.

The scene typified for me two things. One: how Martin’s brutally bravura plot twists were thrillingly realised by showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss. Two: how unfitted I’d be living in the cod-medieval mash-up Martin had created. I would not, for instance, be able to stand to attention as one of my nipples was sliced off to prove my readiness for battle. But even those bracing pleasures curdle. When did this good TV turn bad for me? It was around the time some sex worker glumly pleasured a hard-faced descendant of some decadent ancient king for the umpteenth time. I was getting tired of being implicated in that exploitative scenario week after week. Or when Dany emerged naked from the fire, a CGI dragon landed on her shoulder, and looked off into the middle distance towards Westeros, where she would fulfil her manifest destiny. Or when yet another British thesp slummed into shot (Stephen Dillane, I’ve seen you in Beckett; you’re better than this!).

Advertisement

It’s hard to be precise. It took me a while to realise how right Ian McShane was when he described Game of Thrones as “only tits and dragons”, by which he meant, surely, formulaic hokum that degrades its viewers by commodifying women’s bodies, making entertainment out of sexual torture and pimping up its spectacles.

To clinch that last point, Benioff recently teased season seven by boasting that in one battle scene he and his team had “set more stuntmen on fire than have ever been simultaneously set on fire”. One headline glossed this remark thus: “Game of Thrones Decided to Set Even More People on Fire This Season, Because Sure, Why Not”.

Why not? Gee, you’d think, because of the law of diminishing returns. Life is short and Game of Thrones, like many TV franchises, is too long, stuck in its ways, creatively bankrupt. It’s projected to carry on until 2019 then, doubtless, will diversify into spin-offs. But I’m gone.

Talking Toilets With Matt Damon

The actor is on a mission to bring sanitation and safe water to the entire planet.

He’s a famous, award-winning actor, producer, and screenwriter. But Matt Damon, 46, also is co-founder of Water.org, a nonprofit that promotes access to safe water and sanitation. I interviewed him in Washington, D.C., as he prepared to address leaders at the World Bank.

Susan Goldberg: So let’s have a conversation about poop.

Matt Damon: Great. With the group’s name being Water.org, if we ever solve the access-to-clean-water side of water and sanitation, I wonder if the name would become [deleted].org …

SG: I can’t print that! That’s pretty funny though.

Seriously: In trying to report and photograph the story on sanitation that is in this issue, it became clear that this is a hard thing to talk about for a lot of people.

MD: Yes. If you talk about something like cancer or AIDS, even if you’re talking about the developing world, people in the developed world totally relate. We all have people who’ve battled one of those diseases, and it’s instantly relatable. But something like this just isn’t.

Maybe we’ll have stories of grandparents or great-grandparents who were going to the outhouse, but this is a problem that largely has been solved in the developed world. We can’t really relate to something like open defecation, which is a huge issue in the developing world.

SG: That’s even hard for some people to say aloud. One of the things we really try to do in our story is to show the impact of the lack of sanitation; maybe then you can get people to rally around.

MD: It’s hard to get people to comprehend the enormity of the problem—that 2.4 billion people lack adequate access to sanitation. More people have a cell phone than a toilet. You lose a kid under the age of five every 90 seconds because of lack of access to clean water and sanitation. Those two really go hand in hand.

SG: So what do you do?

MD: The first hurdle to clear is to get people to understand that it’s an issue, and then the second is to try to make it easier to talk about. We can use humor. We had an idea of shooting a PSA [public service announcement] at some fabulous Hollywood celebrity’s house and I’d ask to use the bathroom and they’d go, Oh, no, we don’t have bathrooms—we practice open defecation.

SG: Were there any celebrities you had in mind?

MD: I thought it would be funny if it were at Jimmy Kimmel’s house. [Editor’s note: That line got a laugh because for nearly a decade Damon and talk show host Kimmel have pulled pranks on each other and pretended to be feuding.]

SG: So the world is full of important causes, lots of things that you can spend your time and energy and money on. Why this mission?

MD: I started to look at issues of extreme poverty and wanted to get involved; water and sanitation just undergirded everything. It was just so massive, and I didn’t hear anybody talking about it. It’s just endlessly fascinating and vastly complex, and there’s no kind of one silver bullet that’s going to fix it.

Poll: Half of Trump voters say Trump won popular vote

Roughly half of voters who said they voted for Donald Trump last November, 49 percent, believe Trump won the popular vote, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll. That's compared to 40 percent who say Democrat Hillary Clinton won.

Overall, a majority of voters, 59 percent, believe Clinton won more votes than Trump, but 28 percent believe Trump won more votes.

Respondents were asked which presidential candidate won the national popular vote and the Electoral College after Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach — the vice chair of Trump’s controversial Presidential Advisory Commission on Electoral Integrity — said in a televised interview last week that "we may never know" whether Clinton won the popular vote.

The president himself asserted in late November that he won the popular and the electoral vote. "In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally," Trump tweeted.

A report from the Federal Election Commission, compiled earlier this year from official state election results, credits Clinton with winning nearly 2.9 million more votes than Trump out of a total of almost 137 million votes cast.

The poll results were more resounding when it comes to the Electoral College: 72 percent say Trump won, compared to only 14 percent who say Clinton was the victor. Trump won 304 electoral votes, to Clinton’s 227. (There were seven faithless electors: Two of Trump’s electors defected to other candidates, as did five of Clinton’s.)

The POLITICO/Morning Consult poll was conducted July 20-24. The poll surveyed 3,981 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.

HBO's "Insecure" explores Male Sexual Fluidity

In Sunday’s episode, Molly invites Jared over for a night of dinner and kinship during which both of them get onto the topic of things they have done in their pasts. Molly begins sharing parts of her college experience, specifically sharing that during her college years, she had a fling with another woman. Throughout this conversation, Molly continues to pressure Jared into sharing a secret with her that will surprise her.

Surprise her is exactly what he does.

Jared states that while out with one of his really good friends a few years back, he opted to go back to his place and let said friend provide him with some lip service. This information wasn’t a shock to Molly until Jared confessed that the said person he connected with was male.

It was evident that this information did not go over well with Molly. We find out that the idea of Jared having intercourse with another male is something that makes her very insecure and ultimately leads her to break things off with her love interest. Later on in the episode, a few of Molly’s friends challenge her by asking why it seems that Jared should be OK with the fact that she has had relations with another woman, yet it is not OK for him to have had relations with another man.

This episode offered a very salient question for me as the viewer: Why does it seem that black men are never able to explore their sexuality without fear of rejection or embarrassment within our culture? Sunday night’s episode of Insecure had to be one of the best in the series so far. The HBO show does well painting a picture of what it means to be a modern-day single black woman dating in Los Angeles, while examining topics of racism, sexism and microaggressions not only in the dating scene but also within the daily lives of black women.

Throughout the first season, many of the characters in the show have experienced various situations that have led them to feel insecure about who they are, most recently in the storyline between Molly (Yvonne Orji) and Jared (Langston Kerman).

In case you haven’t been able to keep up, Molly is a well-to-do attorney who continues to search for Mr. Right while finding only Mr. Right Now. In her endeavors to branch out and date someone different from who she is usually attracted to, she meets Jared, who we later learn isn’t an Ivy League lawyer or attorney but a salesman at the local Enterprise Rent-a-Car. After another love interest goes sour for Molly, she decides to reconvene with Jared, only to find out that they both have more in common than what she expects.

[quote]Isn't there a certain incompatibility between the terms 'cinema' and 'Britain'? This might sound far-fetched, but I get the feeling that there are national characteristics — among them, the English countryside, the subdued way of life, the stolid routine - that are anti-dramatic in a sense. The weather itself is anti-cinematic. Even British humor - that very understatement on which so many of the good crime comedies are hinged — is somehow a deterrent to strong emotion

Tourism Is Eating New York Alive

An invasive species the city's leadership can't get enough of.

In the early 2000s, after 20 years of popularity, an iconic T-shirt vanished from the streets. "Welcome to New York," it read. "Now go home." Its disappearance mirrored the disappearance of a caustic attitude. In Bloomberg's city it was no longer kosher to complain about tourists. We were told we needed them after 9/11. With the Americanization of New York after the attacks, with Ground Zero turned into a morbid attraction, and with the mayor hyperfocused on increasing tourism, out-of-towners made themselves very comfortable. They began pouring in, slowing down the trains and clogging the sidewalks. Fran Lebowitz had earlier complained, "What a nightmare! No one who isn't from New York knows how to be a pedestrian. Pedestrians don't mosey. And they don't walk five abreast. I'd like to make New York unsafe for tourists." But it was too late. During the 2000s, the impact of mass tourism—bringing touristification and "tourism gentrification"—would do its part to change the psyche of the city's streets.

People reacted to white lady being killed by cops

There’s a typical story that plays out in the aftermath of police shootings. One side, critical of police, comes out pointing to the excesses of police brutality, particularly in cases in which officers killed black men and boys. The other side, supportive of police, comes out pointing to the nuances of the cases and perhaps the ways that the victims are to blame for their deaths — he had a criminal record, he didn’t listen to the police, and so on.

This didn’t really happen after Justine Damond, a white woman, was shot and killed by a black police officer, Mohamed Noor. While many people — including some Black Lives Matter activists — criticized the shooting, very few defended Noor in the same way they have stood up for police officers in previous incidents. Not many articles focused on nitpicking the lack of information we have to try to weaken the case against the police. There’s been little to no victim blaming.

Consider the ultra-conservative news outlet Breitbart. The outlet has been unusually muted about this particular police shooting, running few original articles on Damond. One of the articles it has run, however, paint her as a victim who was just trying to get help: “Woman Calls 911, Shot Dead by Minneapolis Officer.”

In contrast, Breitbart ran many original stories about the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in which it painted Brown, his family, and even his supporters as criminals. After reports said prosecutors would drop charges against the officers allegedly involved in Freddie Gray’s death in police custody in Baltimore, Breitbart ran the headline, “Report: Prosecutors Drop All Charges in Heroin Trafficker Freddie Gray Case” — again, describing the victim as a criminal. After Cleveland officers shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice, Breitbart ran headlines suggesting that Rice was large and dangerous: “The Latest: 12-year-old Tamir Rice was 5’7″, weighed 175 lbs” and “Cleveland Officers Claim Tamir Rice Lifted Shirt, Reached into Waistband.”

The difference in reaction is alarming. But it’s not unexpected. The research suggests much of America really does react differently to tragedies involving white victims than black ones. We are seeing that play out in real time in the response to Damond’s death.

The reaction to Justine Damond’s death was different

Gap In-Store Playlists 1992-2006 - HELP!

Surely I'm not the only gay man who collected the in-store playlists for Gap stores while he worked there? I worked for Gap from 1992 to 2006, and each month, a new CD (or cassette pre-1998) would arrive to play in the stores for the designated month. Along with it came a playlist with all of the songs and artists listed in order (each CD or tape was a full four hours),

I loved the music and I would keep the paper playlists for each month that I worked there, using them to build my music collection. So many different styles throughout the years, with a great selection of Nineties music, both well-known and obscure.

In February 2006, I lost the box that I kept the playlists in. I later found a cache of duplicates that I had stored away, and with that, I began the work of reconstructing each month for the years I worked for Gap. I had already been buying music since 1992 and putting the songs into folders but I had not gotten around to making full-on playlists for every month.

I'm looking for scans or photos of any Gap in-store playlists from 1992 to March 2006. I buy my songs from iTunes, and, if they are not available there, I buy used CDs; NO illegal downloading at all. Nor is there advertising on my site, so this is not "advertising" or trying to get clicks. I'm just trying to make my playlist collection complete.

The site shows how to contact me if ANYONE is able to help me out.

1992 was really great with all kinds of House music, endless Annie Lennox, and the beginning of the resurgence of Disco!

JB tour is over

Justin Bieber has performed more than 150 shows in 40 countries across six continents and 16 months on his “Purpose” world tour. But the final 14 scheduled dates were just too much.

On Monday, he canceled his remaining concerts for this year, which were spread across four months and included shows in East Rutherford, N.J., Hong Kong and Singapore, citing only “unforeseen circumstances.”

“Justin loves his fans and hates to disappoint them,” a statement sent by a publicist said. “However, after careful consideration he has decided he will not be performing any further dates. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.” (Last week, Mr. Bieber had been barred from performing in mainland China because of past “bad behavior.”)

Fan reaction to the news was swift and plentiful online, split along the lines of disappointment and understanding. On Instagram, where Mr. Bieber was most recently shirtless on a hike and at 7-Eleven, commenters flooded his page with purple heart emojis and messages like, “We respect your decisions.”

Zika, Zika Zika, Zika Chameleon

Now in Africa

Africa appears to be the next continent to feel the effects of the strain of Zika virus that's been circulating around the Americas.

On Friday, the World Health Organization said it had confirmed that the Zika virus strain that's been circulating on the African island nation of Cabo Verde is the same as the strain that has been linked to birth defects and neurological conditions in South and Central America.

"The findings are of concern because it is further proof that the outbreak is spreading beyond South America and is on the doorstep of Africa." Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, WHO's regional director for Africa said in a release. "This information will help African countries to re-evaluate their level of risk and adapt and increase their levels of preparedness.”

The Zika virus was originally identified in 1947 in Uganda. It was relatively unknown until 2007, when there was an outbreak of the virus in Micronesia. That Asian type is the one that made its way to Brazil in 2015.

The Zika virus, which is transmitted mainly via mosquitoes, has been identified in the US but only in people who've recently traveled to Zika hot spots. Once infected with Zika, only about 20% of people ever show symptoms, which most commonly include fever, rash, joint pain, and red eyes. There is no vaccine or treatment available for the virus.

One reason this strain of Zika is so troubling is because it is a cause of birth defects including microcephaly (a condition where the baby's head is abnormally small) in babies whose mothers have had Zika. The virus also been linked to a neurological condition called Guillain-Barré Syndrome. Cabo Verde has had locally transmitted Zika since October 2015, and the WHO reports there have been three cases of microcephaly but no cases of GBS.

Texas Senate Approves Anti-Trans Bill In 21-10 Vote

The Texas Tribune reports:

As part of Republican efforts to revive the controversial “bathroom bill,” the Texas Senate on Tuesday gave initial approval to another version of the legislation.

The 21-10 vote — identical to the Senate’s March vote on a similar proposal — came after several amendments to the bill on the floor throughout an eight-hour debate during which Republicans once again espoused the need to pass the legislation for the sake of privacy in bathrooms while Democrats objected to its passage because of its discriminatory effect on an already vulnerable population.

Senate Bill 3 by Republican state Sen. Lois Kolkhorst would regulate bathroom use in schools and buildings overseen by local governments, including cities and counties, based on the sex listed on a person’s birth certificate or other IDs issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The legislation would also nix parts of local nondiscrimination ordinances meant to allow transgender residents to use public bathrooms of their choice. Unlike the Senate’s proposal from the regular session, the bill would not regulate bathroom use in state buildings and public universities or impose civil penalties for entities that violate the bathroom restrictions.

GLAAD reacts:

“By approving SB 3, the Texas Senate has displayed outright negligence for the safety and will of their own constituents,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD. “This law is designed to make it nearly impossible for transgender and gender non-conforming people to go about their daily lives like other Texans and opens the transgender students to discrimination, bullying, and violence. Encouraging discrimination against fellow Texans serves no one, and with Texas’ largest employers opposed to SB 3, it is sure to cause a devastating economic panic.”

Texas House Speaker Joe Strauss, a Republican, has repeatedly voiced opposition to anti-transgender bills, once saying he doesn’t want “the suicide of a single Texan on his hands.” Strauss is under enormous pressure from evangelicals and other haters to allow the House version of the bill to come to the floor during this special session.

Madonna slams Whitney Houston in never-before-seen letter

A NEVER-before-seen letter in which Madonna slams Whitney Houston and Sharon Stone is up for auction.

The Material Girl allegedly penned the letter to actor John Enos in the early 1990s and in it she describes both Houston and Stone as “horribly mediocre”.

Madonna starts the letter by explaining that she’s been in a “foul mood lately” and is “so uncomfortable in my own skin right now”.

The star then goes on to vent: “I have made so many people angry that I’m being punished and basically made to be quiet and sit in a corner, whole other less interesting and exciting people are reaping the benefits of the roads I’ve paved.

“It’s so unequivocally frustrating to read that Whitney Houston has the music career I wish I had and Sharon Stone has the film career I’ll never have. Not because I want to be these women because I’d rather die, but they’re so horribly mediocre and they’re always being held up as paragons of virtue and some sort of measuring stick to humiliate me.”

Madonna was obviously feeling underappreciated when she wrote the letter and complained, “Everything I do is so original and unique and I put so much of myself into it like my book and record and it’s only brought me heartache and pain”.

One can assume that she’s referring to her controversial 1992 Sex photo book and accompanying Erotica album, both sexually explicit works that saw Madonna face a wave of backlash.

“I don’t think I can play the game to be accepted,” she wrote, “I’m too intelligent, I have too much pride”.

Madonna, who won her first of her seven Grammy Awards in 1992, suggested to Enos that she was “born in the wrong place and time and probably the wrong sex!” And the legendary entertainer ended the letter on a rather dark note.

“I feel like I have no career, no family, nothing permanent or tangible,” Madonna wrote.

“My outlook on life is black black black that’s why I’m no good for you or anyone else right now. I have to regain my sense of power and my joy for living.”

Has anyone had a dream that actually came true? Or that you found out afterward actually happened?

I had a horrible dream that my niece was being strangled. She was 8 at the time. The next day her mother told us that the day before, when my niece was walking home from school, a disturbed boy put her in a choke hold. He thought he was "wrestling" like he'd seen on TV. The baby sitter who was waiting to meet her had to run out and pull the boy off. Freaked me the hell out.

Degrading oneself with sexually compulsive behavior

I feel like the character in the movie "Shame" in that I can't seem to stop with compulsive sex. I'm really getting to the point that I hate myself. I do the video peep shows, the apps, the secluded woods- you name it. Last night I was drunk and an anonymous hookup (who was high) peed in my mouth without even warning me. I had dry heaves for hours later, from both that and my alcohol intake. My life has really spiraled out of control, and I don't even use drugs yet it feels like I'm an addict. I hate the person I've become. I know suicide is a stupid non-solution but I swear sometimes it seems like the best option for someone who has no self control and makes poor choices over and over again. Medication doesn't help me. I feel like I'm doomed.

Game Of Thrones Creators Slammed For Racism Over New Show 'Confederate'

Much like the dystopian series “The Man in the High Castle” on Amazon, and the popular video game “Wolfenstein: The New Order,” HBO’s Confederate offers a look at the world in which the Confederacy, and not the Union, won the Civil War and managed to secede.

Writing for the Univision-owned publication, The Root, Yesha Callahan asks: “Who asked for this?” It’s apparently high crime for writers like Benioff and Weiss to imagine an alternate history of the world.

Callahan calls the show a “white nationalist’s wet dream,” as if the show’s creators would callously and stupidly promote racism to offend their whole audience.

In the world of Confederate, America has faced not one, but three civil wars. Slavery remains legal, and persists through to the modern age in some parts of the Confederacy.

As the blogger herself points out, Benioff and Weiss aren’t alone in creating it. Malcolm Spellman and Nichelle Tramble Spellman, both of whom are black, have signed onto the project. Furthermore, the show will revolve around a diverse cast of characters, including abolitionists and freedom fighters.

Callahan isn’t the only one upset by the show’s existence. On social media, numerous social justice warriors took to complaining about it and the possibility that some people might don confederate regalia and merch for ironic purposes.

Lawmakers Agree on Sweeping Russia Sanctions Package

(WASHINGTON) — Congressional Democrats announced Saturday that a bipartisan group of House and Senate negotiators have reached an agreement on a sweeping Russia sanctions package to punish Moscow for meddling in the presidential election and its military aggression in Ukraine and Syria. Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 House Democrat, said lawmakers had settled lingering issues with the bill, which also includes stiff economic penalties against Iran and North Korea. The sanctions targeting Russia, however, have drawn the most attention due to President Donald Trump's persistent push for warmer relations with President Vladimir Putin and ongoing investigations into Russia's interference in the 2016 campaign. Passage of the bill, which could occur before Congress breaks for the August recess, puts Congress on possible collision course with Trump. The White House had objected to a key section of the bill that would mandate a congressional review if Trump attempted to ease or end the sanctions against Moscow. But if Trump were to veto the bill, he risks sparking an outcry from Republicans and Democrats and having his decision overturned. The sanctions review was included in the bill because of wariness among lawmakers from both parties over Trump's affinity for Putin. The precise mechanics of how involved House Democrats would be in the review process had been a key sticking point, but Hoyer said he was pleased with the outcome. "The legislation ensures that both the majority and minority are able to exercise our oversight role over the administration's implementation of sanctions," Hoyer said. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called the sanctions legislation "strong" and he expected the legislation to be passed promptly. "Given the many transgressions of Russia, and President Trump's seeming inability to deal with them, a strong sanctions bill such as the one Democrats and Republicans have just agreed to is essential," said Schumer, D-N.Y. . . .

The Skin Skinny

We've had numerous threads on skincare over the years, I've read them all and used their info (thank you!!). Yes I know I order Retin-A from India and use MUAC. Are you one of the unlucky mother fuckers who BATTLES their skin constantly? WTF and FML!! It's such a bitch. I try to live simply and frugally, I only want to look healthy, and it's like a full-time job. Here are my issues:

Daily sebum in nose pores Flakey skin on nostril sides Keratosis Pilaris on outside of thighs Dandruff -- thick, almost gummy, literally sticks to head, have to scrape it off with sharp comb - if I didn't have flakes by my face I would just leave it but the only place it flakes bad is around the face Moles and freckles A few moles that have HAIR growing from them Getting age/sun spots on face Getting broken capillaries on face Body skin does NO natural exfoliating, I have to SCRUB Body skin perpetually Sahara level dry, heels look like rhino skin if not treated Incredibly wrinkly feet with toe callouses that need weekly shaving as they're visible Sunspots increasing all over body now Cuticles have to be nipped or they're uncomfortably thick Cold sore/herpes virus in/on nose Eyebrows are changing with age, not as full I have curly hair including eyelashes a bit. Eye lids dropping (as I age) onto lashes distorting their growth pattern

This is all true. I'm 44, Polish/Bohemian, dark hair/fair skinned. I do TONS of things I'm not going to list right here, but I do it all, from special Naoxcin shampoo to plucking to lasers to pore extraction to retin-a to drinking tons of water to peels to oil washes to an AMAZING dermatologist. I am guilty of no sun block because my eyes react really terribly to it, but that's my only no-no. How in the fuck am I to maintain this forever? Is this NORMAL??

Inspite of all of this, I actually get regular compliments on my skin, which is great and helps with the frustration a bit. But it's such WORK. And I'm not so vain that I actually give a shit this much, I just want to look healthy but it's all or nothing with my fucking skin!

DOJ nominee discloses Russian bank representation

(CNN)President Donald Trump's nominee to head up the criminal division at the Justice Department has disclosed to members of the Senate judiciary committee that he previously represented a Russian bank whose computer server activity has been under scrutiny by FBI counterintelligence.

Brian Benczkowski served in the Justice Department under President George W. Bush and is currently a partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP. He told senators in a letter obtained by CNN that he specifically disclosed his law firm's representation of Alfa Bank in connection with completing his SF-86 security clearance form. Questions about the bank's activity first arose last year when a group of computer scientists raised concerns about internet records that showed that Alfa Bank servers repeatedly looked up the unique internet address of a Trump Organization computer server in the United States. The bank later hired a cybersecurity firm called Stroz Friedberg to investigate unusual computer server activity, and background materials submitted to senators by Viet Dinh, one of Benczkowski's partners at Kirkland, now show Benczkowski supervised that project. Dinh, also a former DOJ official, further defended the bank in a letter accompanying the submission to senators. "Neither the bank nor its owners have had any relationship of any kind with the Trump Organization at any time, including over the past year," Dinh said. "The bank pledged its full cooperation with government authorities, which continue to examine whether Alfa Bank has been the victim of illegal conduct." Authorities never alleged any wrongdoing on the bank's part and the bank denied any misconduct, but Benczkowski said he nevertheless obtained permission from his former client to discuss the fact and scope of his representation with senators at his confirmation hearing Tuesday. Benczkowski, who led the Trump-Pence transition team at the Justice Department, has a longstanding relationship with Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He worked as a staff director for Sessions back in 2009 when the then-Republican senator from Alabama served as ranking member of the Senate judiciary committee. As part of his standard submission to senators, Benczkowski also described his representation of Volkswagen, which was the target of a criminal investigation by the Justice Department under the Obama administration and eventually led earlier this year to a $2.8 billion criminal fine for conspiring to dodge emissions standards and obstruction of justice. Benczkowski noted that he litigated the Volkswagen case against Andrew Weissmann -- former chief of the Criminal Division's fraud section at DOJ -- who left the department to join special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe earlier this year. CNN's Marshall Cohen contributed to this report.

Angelina Jolie' Stories

From Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography :

"Teased because she was so skinny as well as for her punk getups—at that time common teenage attire in London or New York but not in sunny Beverly Hills—she hung out with a small clique of like-minded outsiders in Roxbury Park or at Westwood Arcade, which was a short bus ride away. In those days Westwood Arcade was the place where kids went to experiment with drugs (magic mushrooms were popular) “Angie was a rebel ahead of her time,” recalls a classmate. “If someone was going to get into trouble, it would be her.”

Budding artist Windsor Lai, socially excluded and bullied because of his hearing disability, remembers seeing Angie and her gang in Westwood Arcade, where he smoked his first cigarette, a Marlboro, thanks to her. “As a person she was very quiet and just blended in,” he recalls, “but then she did all kinds of mad things. Sometimes she would act spaced-out like a drug addict or seem wasted. Then she would grab you unexpectedly and start silly dancing like a mad waltz.”

Her circle included Evelyn Ungvari, whose sister Natalie later became inadvertently embroiled in the White House scandal involving her friend and fellow Beverly Hills High alumna Monica Lewinsky; Elan Atias, who became a reggae singer; child actor Keith Coogan; and Chris Landon, son of Little House on the Prairie star Michael Landon. During this time Landon and Angie were “inseparable,” united by the fact that both were cursed with famous fathers, and both felt they were misunderstood outsiders.

She affected a brittle, intimidating presence, chilly and unapproachable, with the edgy “don’t mess with me” attitude of the outcast. Doodles on her school notebook give an insight into her adolescent mind-set. There are drawings of the devil and of swords, knives, and other weapons, and phrases like “Death: extinction of life, hell, suicide, mental suffering,” and “Autopsy: examination of a corpse.”

As macabre as her musings seem, there was a practical and personal purpose behind them. She had an ambition to be a funeral director, and even sent away for the Funeral Service Institute handbook, which she still has, and completed the multiple-choice test.

White Cop shoots Off-Duty Black Cop

ST LOUIS – A black off-duty St. Louis police officer was shot by a white on-duty police officer from the same department who apparently mistook him for a fleeing suspect, according to a statement from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

At about 10 p.m. Wednesday evening, St. Louis police received a report that a stolen vehicle had been spotted. Officers laid down spike strips and turned on their lights, but the occupants of the vehicle allegedly opened fire on police. Officers followed the car until it crashed.

According to the police statement, the armed suspects then fled on foot. Meanwhile, an off-duty officer who lived near where the crash occurred came outside with his department issued firearm after hearing the commotion.

Two officers "challenged the off-duty officer and ordered him to the ground," the department said. The officer complied and once they recognized him the on-duty officers told him "to stand up and walk toward them."

At about the same time, another officer who had just arrived on the scene saw what was happening and"fearing for his safety and apparently not recognizing the off-duty officer, discharged a shot, striking the off-duty officer in the arm." The injured officer was taken to the hospital and has since been released. He is described as 38 year old with 11 years of service. The department says that the officer who allegedly shot him is 36 years old with over eight years of service.

Seven officers have been placed on administrative leave while the shooting is investigated.

Brad Pitt: Frank Ocean helping him through Divorce, Sobriety

In addition to therapy and quitting drinking, it turns out Frank Ocean is helping Brad Pitt move past his recent personal troubles.

In a stunning catharsis interview with GQ Style, Pitt revealed that elusive singer Ocean had become quite important to him. “He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one,” the “Allied” actor concluded of Ocean’s music.

Pitt’s fandom comes from a larger and recent understanding of R&B music, the 53-year-old star of the upcoming drama, “War Machine,” explained.

“I just got R&B for the first time. R&B comes from great pain, but it’s a celebration. To me, it’s embracing what’s left,” Pitt said.

It’s been a tumultuous ride for the actor and co-founder of reigning Best Picture winner (Plan B Entertainment’s “Moonlight”), as last September, Pitt’s superstar wife Angelina Jolie shocked the world by filing for divorce.

The subsequent fallout saw Pitt investigated by the FBI and Child Services stemming from an alleged conflict with his eldest son Maddox on a private flight from France to Los Angeles. The chaos was purely in contrast to the loving, charitable and stable Jolie-Pitt family brand.

Also Read: Brad Pitt Goes to Battle in Trailer for Netflix's 'War Machine'

In the same GQ cover story, Pitt elaborated on his drinking problems and the dark, “solemn” period of time without his family (final custody arrangements for he and Jolie’s seven children is still being hashed out, he said).

“You’ve played characters in pain. What is pain, emotional and physical?” GQ’s Paterniti asked for the spread, accompanied by a brilliant Ryan McGinley photoshoot at three of America’s national parks.

“Yeah, I’m kind of done playing those. I think it was more pain tourism. It was still an avoidance in some way. I’ve never heard anyone laugh bigger than an African mother who’s lost nine family members. What is that?” Pitt wondered.

“To me, it’s embracing what’s left. It’s that African woman being able to laugh much more boisterously than I’ve ever been able to,” he said.

Misconceptions of bisexual people

To assume, just because someone is bisexual, that they’ll automatically be interested in anyone and everyone, including yourself, is not only narcissistic, but it’s harmful to the bisexual community. This kind of thinking hypersexualizes a sexual orientation by assuming that a person must be attracted to the entirety of whichever gender they’re attracted to. This is why you’ll hear dude-bros say, “I can’t hang out with that gay guy, he might make a move on me.” In short, attraction and infidelity are not the assumed uncontrollable urges for those with sexualities other than heterosexual. I experience attraction to both genders, but when I’m with a person, they’re the only one on my romantic radar. Another difficult aspect of the hypersexualization of bisexual people is the threesome effect. I make a point of avoiding the subject of my sexuality around other couples because the moment that I reveal that I’m bisexual, the next words I usually hear are, “Would you ever have a threesome with us?” Again, just because I experience attraction to both men and women does not mean that I want to have sex with both of them at once. At all. And, it does not mean that I want to have sex with either of them. To presume that because I’m bisexual that I automatically am attracted to you and your partner is ridiculous. I know this sounds like a no-brainer, but for some reason I’ve had to field this question way too many times. Luckily, my boyfriend and I have an amazingly trusting relationship, and he’s never been nervous about me hanging out with other people alone or that I’d be hard to keep around because of my sexuality. And to my fellow bisexuals out there, if your partner is suspicious of you simply because of your sexuality, they are not worth your time. Sexuality does not determine fidelity; fidelity is a choice.

Guess Who Was Executed 100 Years Ago?

Born in the Netherlands, infamous femme fatale Mata Hari became involved in World War One by becoming a spy for France. But then it was discovered that the seductive vamp was a double agent and was a spy for Germany.

In 1917, at the heighth of the Great War, she was put in front of a French firing squad to which she seductively blew them a kiss before they shot her dead. No one claimed her body and it was used for experimentation purposes. Screen legend Greta Garbo starred in a movie about Mata Hari's life.

Washington Post tried to shrug off Schumer blaming Hillary instead of Russia

When the highest ranking Democrat in Washington takes a public swipe at Hillary Clinton and undermines the “Russia won the election for Trump” narrative you’d think it would be pretty big news.

The Daily Beast thought so. So did the Washington Free Beacon. As did Slate. Here at Mediaite, we saw the obvious news as well:

[quote] “When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” Schumer said. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”

However, the Washington Post didn’t appear to find this infighting between top Democrats as worthy of a headline or even the lede in their account of the Schumer slam. Even more astounding: Schumer gave the quote to WaPo directly in an exclusive interview.

Yup, the Daily Beast, Free Beacon, Slate and Mediaite stories (as well as many other outlets) all pulled the quote from the 6th paragraph of Ed O’Keefe and David Weigel article headlined:

[quote] Trump had ‘The Art of the Deal.’ Now Democrats say their economic agenda is ‘A Better Deal.’

It’s not uncommon for journalists to bury a lede, but two politically savvy journos like O’Keefe and Weigel have pretty good instincts on what’s going to cause a stir in the town they cover and when so many other outlets highlight this nugget while the thrust of their article is nothing more than a PR write-up on the Democrats’ new branding efforts, it’s worth asking what happened here.

Setting aside the notion that these two reporters didn’t recognize the hot quote they stumbled upon, it could be that the exclusive access to Schumer was granted under the agreement that the thrust of the article would highlight the “Better Deal” narrative the Democrats are rolling out this week. This kind of thing happens all the time in Washington. However, it’s fair to ponder whether these same reporters (or any other DC reporters for that matter) would honor such an agreement if Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell had said an equally volatile statement about President Trump. What are the odds?

It could also be a blatant case of good-old-fashioned bias where these reporters are so taken by the stunning brilliance of the Democrats’ new slogan that they truly found it to be the most riveting issue they had to write about Sunday night and had no idea that catty aside from the senior Senator from Clinton’s “home state” would even matter to anyone when compared to the game-changing “A Better Deal” party slogan.

Frankly it doesn’t matter. This sort of thing adds to the perception from many Americans that any bit of news that can cast the president in a negative light would be the screaming banner headline at WaPo or the New York Times or any of the other 57 major newspapers that endorsed Clinton (compared to 2 for Trump.) And any item that even barely undermines the “Hillary would have won if it weren’t for Putin” narrative will be virtually ignored by papers like WaPo.

As major publications and media outlets continue to have their fragile egos bruised by President Trump’s insistence to fight back against their shoddy work, it’s probably best to not give him so much ammunition to prove his point. After all, it doesn’t take a career journalist to recognize that Schumer’s slam on Hillary was a major story. Even this guy figured it out:

Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump

After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that "Democrats should blame ourselves,not Russia."

Playful Einstein photograph goes up for auction

Playful Einstein photograph goes up for auction

Signed and dated copy of the jovial 1951 image to go under the hammer on 27 July; previous copies have sold for almost $44,000

Nicola Davis, Tuesday 25 July 2017 18.40 BST

Wild haired with a bushy moustache and his tongue sticking out, the photograph revealing Albert Einstein as something of a prankster is one of the most recognisable images of the physicist. Now a signed and dated copy is about to be auctioned.

Snapped by United Press International photographer Arthur Sasse as Einstein departed in the back of car following his 72nd birthday celebrations in 1951, the image shot into the public consciousness after publishers overcame their initial qualms and printed the jovial image.

Even the Nobel laureate himself was amused at the photo, requesting cropped copies which he then signed and gave to friends.

But the current auctioneers note that the image that is set to go under the hammer on 27 July is unusual in also showing the companions who left the Princeton club with Einstein that night: Frank Aydelotte, director of the Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton, where Einstein worked, and Aydelotte’s wife, Marie Jeanette.

If previous sales are a guide, the latest lot could scoop a sizeable sum: copies signed by the physicist have recently sold for almost $44,000, with a signed, cropped version of the photo bearing a handwritten German rhyme selling for $125,000.

Einstein’s leather jacket sold for £110,000 last year, but a photograph may be a safer bet for Einstein aficionados: the jacket was dubbed “rather pungent” by the auctioneers.

(Berkeley )KPFA cancels Richard Dawkins’ speech because of his tweets about Islam

In the latest Berkeley controversy over what speakers may talk about, the progressive radio station KPFA has canceled an Aug. 9 on-stage appearance by the scientist Richard Dawkins.

KPFA had invited the British scientist to discuss his newest book, Science in the Soul: Collected Writings of a Passionate Rationalist, which it termed “excellent.” But on Thursday the news organization canceled the event, citing concerns about the tone of some of Dawkins’ tweets about Muslims.

“We had booked this event based entirely on his excellent new book on science when we didn’t know he had offended and hurt – in his tweets and other comments on Islam, so many people,” KPFA said in an email sent to ticket buyers. “KPFA does not endorse hurtful speech. While KPFA emphatically supports serious free speech, we do not support abusive speech. We apologize for not having had broader knowledge of Dawkins views much earlier.”

Dawkins challenged KPFA’s interpretation of his tweets through a press release issued by the Center for Public Inquiry. In 2017, his Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason & Science merged with the Center for Public Inquiry and Dawkins holds a board seat.

“The idea that I have engaged in abusive speech against Islam is preposterous, which even the most rudimentary fact-checking by KPFA would have made clear,” Dawkins is cited as saying in the press release. “I have indeed strongly condemned the misogyny, homophobia, and violence of Islamism, of which Muslims — particularly Muslim women — are the prime victims. I make no apologies for denouncing those oppressive cruelties, and I will continue to do so.”

Dawkins later wrote an open letter to KPFA and posted it on his website:

“I have called IslamISM “vile” but surely you, of all people, understand that Islamism is not the same as Islam,” Dawkins wrote. “I have criticised the ridiculous pseudoscientific claims made by Islamic apologists (“the sun sets in a marsh” etc), and the opposition of Islamic “ scholars” to evolution and other scientific truths. I have criticised the appalling misogyny and homophobia of Islam, I have criticised the murdering of apostates for no crime other than their disbelief. Far from attacking Muslims, I understand – as perhaps you do not – that Muslims themselves are the prime victims of the oppressive cruelties of Islamism, especially Muslim women.”

A perusal of Dawkins’ recent tweets shows that he comments often about Islam, but he also comments about other religions. Dawkins, an evolutionary biologist, is an atheist. In his 2006 book, The God Delusion (which he spoke about in Berkeley) Dawkins criticizes religious faith as a delusion and says a supernatural creator does not exist.

Dawkins has sent out tweets and made statements that are critical of extremist Muslims, the female genital mutilation practiced by some Muslim societies, and the requirement that women must wear burkas.

When Dawkins was a guest on Bill Maher’s HBO show, Dawkins said Islam was often given a “free pass” for some of its practices because liberals were afraid of not being politically correct.

Then he said: “Well, to hell with their culture,” the newspaper reported. “There’s this notion Islam and Muslims are this protected species.” That if we talk about them at all or criticise at all, it’s somehow hurting or humiliating Muslims. It’s a ridiculous idea.”

“KPFA, like so many, is guilty of confusing free speech with “abusive speech,” banning a talk, and thus depriving people of the chance to hear Richard – and probably ask him questions or even criticize him,” Coyne wrote. “Here’s the station’s inevitable “but”: While KPFA emphatically supports serious free speech, we do not support abusive speech. Give me a break! Criticism of ideas is not criticism of people, nor is it “abuse.” Shame on KPFA for not realizing this, and for their craven behavior in canceling the talk.”

Should I buy a Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, Honda Civic, Mazda 3, Ford Focus, Nissan Sentra

I'm moving from a city with great public transport to one with virtually none, so I'm in the market for a car for the first time in 4 years. I'm not a fancy gay, I don't need a luxury car, but I also don't want the basement level sub-compact. I'm playing in the premium economy / small sedan area. Don't worry, I'm going to be doing plenty of research and test drives. I'm not buying new -- aiming for a certified model that's 1 to 3 years old with low mileage.

Initially, at the start of this process, I'm leaning toward the Elantra, which I've rented before and thought it had a pretty smooth ride, was nicely appointed etc. And it has Hyundai's respected 10 year 100,000 mi warranty.

What was your earliest memory?

When I was six years old I broke my leg. I was running from my brother and his friends. And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down. I was younger then, take me back to when I found my heart and broke it here. Made friends and lost them through the years. And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown. But I can't wait to go home.

My second earliest memory:

Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes. Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends. Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon that I did it right. But I was younger then, take me back to when we found weekend jobs, when we got paid. We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight. Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we've grown. But I can't wait to go home. I'm on my way driving at 90 down those country lanes, singing to "Tiny Dancer" and I miss the way you make me feel, and it's real. We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.

He had the time of his life. After he was done, I looked down and the condom was halfway up my shaft. The head was still covered by it. Again, 50% of the condom was still still covering my penis -- okay, may 45%. My question, am I gonna die because of this? I'm not sure if it rode up during sex or once he got off of me.

Why Is Transgender An Identity But Anorexia A Disorder

......"If a man wants to wear makeup, dresses, even get breast implants, who are we to stop him? If he wants to legally change his name to Maureen, great! But language policing, the implication that by misusing a pronoun we are savaging a person’s very core, is untenable. Using “he” instead of “she” may very well hurt someone’s feelings, but that is a level of sensitivity on par with agoraphobia (fear of crowded or enclosed public spaces). The onus is on the person to find ways of coping. The world cannot be responsible for validating a confusing, opaque issue that has been too quickly transferred from “disorder” to “condition,” from irrational to heroic."

Dan Savage and polyamory.

Dan Savage has been a huge voice in gay rights for a long time by writing about his personal life. He promotes and fights for whatever relationship model he is in. Early on it was "traditional" family structure and stability "the kid" Then the fight for marriage "the comittment" Then he coined the phrase "monogamish" and has done interview after interview promoting this idea of mostly monogamous couples having a little bit of NSA fun on the side. Then Terry started becoming a softcore pornstar and the insinuation was that the marriage moved on from monogomish to open. Now it's clear they are in some form of polyamorous relationship. How long before a "heartfelt and humorous" book about how they met their bf? How they told their families? How they introduced him to their son? Do they share finances and parenting duties? Do they plan a ceremony with him?

I bet within 3 years Savage will create a firestorm in the gay community by calling for marriage/partnership laws to include multiple partners.

Hot mic catches senators Susan Collins and Jack Reed talking shit about Trump and Blake Farenthold

[quote]After Reed praises Collins’s handling of the hearing, held by the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee, she laments the administration’s handling of spending. “I swear, [the Office of Management and Budget] just went through and whenever there was ‘grant,’ they just X it out,” Collins says. “With no measurement, no thinking about it, no metrics, no nothing. It’s just incredibly irresponsible.” “Yes,” Reed replies. “I think — I think he’s crazy,” apparently referring to the president. “I mean, I don’t say that lightly and as a kind of a goofy guy.” “I’m worried,” Collins replies. “Oof,” Reed continues. “You know, this thing — if we don’t get a budget deal, we’re going to be paralyzed.” “I know,” Collins replies.

[quote]“[Department of Defense] is going to be paralyzed, everybody is going to be paralyzed,” Reed says. “I don’t think he knows there is a [Budget Control Act] or anything,” Collins says, referring to a 2011 law that defines the budget process. “He was down at the Ford commissioning,” Reed says, referring to President Trump’s weekend event launching a new aircraft carrier, “saying, ‘I want them to pass my budget.’ Okay, so we give him $54 billion and then we take it away across the board which would cause chaos.” “Right,” Collins replies. “It’s just — and he hasn’t — not one word about the budget. Not one word about the debt ceiling,” Reed says. "Good point,” Collins replies. “You’ve got [Budget Director Mick] Mulvaney saying we’re going to put in all sorts of stuff like a border wall. Then you’ve got [Treasury Secretary Steve] Mnuchin saying it’s got to be clean,” Reed continues. “We’re going to be back in September, and, you know, you’re going to have crazy people in the House.”]

Then they move on to reading Blake for filth, I mean, he is just so damn ugly

[quote]In a more salacious part of what was recorded, Collins then addressed a radio interview in which Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.) suggested that if Collins were a man, he’d have challenged her to a duel for opposing the Senate Republicans’ Obamacare overhaul bill. “Did you see the one who challenged me to a duel?” Collins asks. “I know,” Reed replies. “Trust me. Do you know why he challenged you to a duel? ‘Cause you could beat the s— out of him.” “Well, he’s huge,” Collins replies. “And he — I don’t mean to be unkind, but he’s so unattractive it’s unbelievable.” “Did you see the picture of him in his pajamas next to this Playboy bunny?” she continues, referring to an infamous photo of Farenthold, below.

Shirley Jones: Still horny after all these years

In her new tell-all, the Partridge Family matriarch says she was very in tune with the sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll lifestyle of her day. Sometimes she’d even flee the show’s set for a quickie with playboy hubby Jack Cassidy.

“At the height of ‘The Partridge Family,’ now and again Jack would pick me up from the studio in the car, then drive us into the garage adjacent to our house, where he would have intercourse with me in the backseat,” she says.

Jones also says her stepson David Cassidy was definitely his father’s son. According to the tell-all, both Cassidy men were very well endowed. “David’s brothers called him Donk, for Donkey,” she writes.

She also reminisces about exotic escapades they enjoyed “wherever and whenever we wanted,” including one go-round on the floor of a sailboat, dalliances in bathtubs and in backstage dressing rooms.

The actress and author claims her sex encounters often involved other stars, and reflects back on one crazy night in the late ’60s, after she and Jack had dinner with Anthony Newley and Joan Collins at their home.

According to Jones, Newley bragged to her and her hubby that he was in possession of a few porn flicks and suggested the four of them get naked and have a kinky movie night. Jones says she declined the invite.

The book also has a chapter about the night Jones and Jack Cassidy swung by Sammy Davis Jr.’s Beverly Hills home, where lines of cocaine were waiting on every tabletop and porn played on TV screens throughout the house.

While the ’60s may be over, the 79-year-old Jones says she isn’t done yet.

“I still want to make it clear that I believe that a woman can remain sexual right through her 70s and 80s and beyond. I am living proof of that.” Jones writes. “Despite my advanced years, that hasn’t changed a bit, although it can take longer than before for me to achieve sexual fulfillment these days.”

Well, “Come on, Get Happy,” Mrs. Partridge!

"Tell us about Man in an Orange Shirt…"

"‘It’s in 2 parts: the first is about [my character Michael] a man who falls in love with a [male] war artist during WWII. That was forbidden, so he marries and has a child, but over the course of 15 years he continues this relationship with this artist, and his wife finds out about it – it’s pretty horrific really. The 2nd part picks up when the wife is much older – Vanessa Redgrave plays her, and she’s amazing, incredible – and you find out how [the affair] kind of affected her whole life, how it’s affected her relationship with her son and her grandson. It’s all about repression and actually it’s insane when you think about it, about what used to happen to people that were in that situation. It’s terrifying. It’s a really eye-opening, well-written script and a beautiful love story. It’s heart-breaking – the most intense shoot I’ve ever done.’

Woman who wore fake penis to pose as a man and trick female friend into sex is jailed for more than six years

A "manipulative" woman who tricked a friend into sex with a fake penis by blindfolding her and pretending to be a man has been sentenced to six and a half years in prison.

Gayle Newland created multiple "disturbingly complex" online personas to achieve her own "bizarre sexual satisfaction", Manchester Crown Court heard.

The "deceitful and crafty" 27-year-old used one fake identity to create a Facebook account and pose as a half-Filipino half-Latino man called Kye Fortune.

Over a two year period, Newland developed an online relationship with the victim, also in her 20s, under this name.

She lowered her voice when they spoke on the phone and used pictures of an American man on her Facebook page to give 'Kye' a physical identity.

And when the pair eventually met up, Newland told the victim to wear a blindfold because she was insecure about her appearance.

The victim only discovered she was having sex with Newland, and not her boyfriend 'Kye', when she took off the mask during one of their 15 sexual encounters.

Sentencing Newland today, Judge David Stockdale QC said the offences demonstrate "an extraordinary degree of cunning and a chilling desire to manipulate and control the lives of others".

Newland grabbed hold of the dock's glass panels and screamed 'no' when her sentence was read.

Shaking her head and crying, the 27-year-old looked up at family members in the public gallery, who shouted words of comfort and blew kisses.

Last month, a jury at Manchester Crown Court found Newland, from Cheshire, guilty of committing sexual assault by using a prosthetic penis without her blindfolded victim's consent, following a retrial.

The court heard the defendant spent "hundreds" of hours talking on the telephone to her friend as 'Kye', who said 'he' was undergoing treatment for cancer and was paranoid about his physical appearance.

The victim agreed to wear a blindfold at all times during their sexual encounters and other face-to-face exchanges.

In her defence, Newland claimed both women were gay and struggling with their sexuality. She said when they met up and had sex they used 'Kye' as a fantasy figure during role-play.

She denied concealing her true identity but was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault and cleared of a fourth count.

Newland was jailed for eight years in November 2015 after she was convicted of the same offences by another jury at Chester Crown Court.

But the conviction was quashed in the Court of Appeal last December and a retrial ordered after it was ruled the trial judge's summing up of the case was not fair and balanced.

Mental health experts blasted the original jail term, saying troubled Newland should not have been locked up and instead needed psychiatric care.

CNN's Jim Acosta is now available . . .

Women have been flocking to recently separated Jim Acosta, the CNN White House correspondent who President Trump derisively called “a real beauty.”

The handsome Cuban-American was married for 24 years to Sharon Mobley Stow, a registered nurse with whom he has two daughters and a son.

But since the couple quietly split earlier this year and started divorce proceedings, Acosta has been embracing the single life in Washington, DC.

“A friend lives in his building and [has seen] him with different women,” one White House colleague told me.

Acosta also was quite popular on the recent presidential trip to Saudi Arabia, sources say.

Last year, when Acosta asked Trump a question he didn’t like, the president interrupted him, saying, “Excuse me, excuse me, I’ve watched you on TV. You’re a real beauty.”

Why Can't My Famous Gender Nonconforming Friends Get Laid?

It's a cool Saturday night in my East Village apartment, and Alok Vaid-Menon has just created a Tinder account for me, while Jacob Tobia bats their eyelashes in the background.

Alok and Jacob are two of the most publicly visible gender nonconforming femmes I know. As a performance poet, Alok has just gone solo after touring in dozens of cities in the US and abroad as one half of the poetry duo Darkmatter. Jacob was named to 2016's OUT 100, has made a web series for NBC, and been the subject of a GLAAD-nominated episode of MTV's True Life. Both are trans-identified, but belong somewhere in between genders.... They've become celebrities in their own right, with Jacob regularly walking down the red carpet at LGBTQ galas and Alok featuring in the Janet Mock–narrated HBO documentary The Trans List.

But if you think all that would land them a date, you'd be wrong. And nobody is more puzzled than me as to why such obvious catches are having dating problems when so many clamor for their attention.

It's a reliable source of ennui in our group chats, and as the elder among my nonbinary pals, I've been giving Jacob and Alok dating advice for weeks. Trans dating is tricky, because you have to deal with prejudice on top of all the usual insecurities around wanting to be as attractive as possible for a potential mate. Dating among nonbinary femmes is even trickier, as the vast majority of people, even queer ones, imagine themselves as dating men or women exclusively, so nonbinary folks can complicate how others view one's sexuality....

I'm partnered and not really looking, but since my relationship isn't exclusive, Alok and Jacob convinced me to open a Tinder account so I could demonstrate IRL the maneuvers I'd long touted. I intended to show them something I've learned over time—that if you treat being trans like it's a source of shame, then that's how your date will feel, too....

Instead, what I learned during the social experiment that followed is that Jacob and Alok, like many gender nonconforming femmes, live in a world where admirers applaud them for their radical politics on social media, and people they're attracted to associate with them because of their slayworthiness and social capital, but refuse to make love to them....

As Alok set up my Tinder account, I became confused when they asked whether I wanted to set my gender as "man" or "woman." This all happened in those dark days of autumn 2016, before Tinder added 37 new gender options to the app. Since I'm on the femme side of nonbinary, I thought it would be obvious that I wouldn't label myself a man. Alok then added pictures of me from Facebook. In each of them, I was androgynous and without makeup—except for one...

"OMG, I'm going to switch my gender to 'woman' too so I can look at straight guys!" Alok exclaimed as they picked up their phone, and Jacob followed suit. I'd vaguely known that most of their prospects had been gay-identified men, but it didn't even occur to me that if given only two gender choices, they would need to pick "man" on Tinder so they would get gay instead of straight matches, along with the rare bi and pan guys.

I personally felt that dating straight-identified men was the right choice. My experience has been that straight guys are more willing to experiment with GNC folk than gay guys, because their attractions aren't as socially defined and don't come with a lifestyle attached. Also, there are a lot more of them. This was my experience, anyway.

"Straight boys are soooo cuuuute," Alok said as they and Jacob started swiping, their exaggerated intonation managing to feel both sincere and ironic. "Maybe we should get electrolysis and take hormones," Jacob added in jest, perking up at the bevy of new options.

Trump Confirms Existence Of Secret CIA Program - On Twitter

Donald Trump appears to have confirmed the existence of a classified CIA programme - in a tweet.

In a series of posts last night the President took aim at a report on Syrian rebels in the Washington Post, owned by Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos.

The article detailed Trump’s apparent decision to “end the CIA’s covert programme to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels battling the government of Bashar al-Assad, a move long sought by Russia”.

US officials told the newspaper in the story published 19 July that ending the secret programme was related to Trump’s concerns about re-establishing a working relationship with Russia.

Trump, apparently just catching up on last week’s news, obviously took umbrage at the report and unleashed a volley of angry tweets including this one which appears to confirm the existence of the classified program.

Which did not go unnoticed.

White House deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders declined at the time to discuss cessation of the program, telling reporters she didn’t know if it had come up in discussions that Trump had with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

Trump continued his tirade against The Washington Post and Bezos, accusing them of lobbying. The tweets appear to have been timed to distract from yesterday’s real story - his son-in-law.

Kushner on Monday answered questions from staff on the Senate’s intelligence panel, acknowledging four meetings with Russians during and after Trump’s victorious White House bid and insisting he had “nothing to hide.” He emerged smiling to publicly declare, “All of my actions were proper.”

A quiet insider who generally avoids the spotlight, Kushner is the first top Trump lieutenant to be quizzed by the congressional investigators probing Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election, reports the Associated Press.

Hours before the Senate meeting, Kushner released an 11-page statement that was billed as his remarks to both the Senate and House committees. In it, he acknowledged his Russian contacts during the campaign and then the following weeks, in which he served as a liaison between the transition and foreign governments. He described each contact as either insignificant or routine and he said the meetings, along with several others, were omitted from his security clearance form because of an aide’s error. Kushner cast himself as a political novice learning in real time to juggle “thousands of meetings and interactions” in a fast-paced campaign.

“Let me be very clear,” Kushner said afterward in a rare public statement at the White House. “I did not collude with Russia, nor do I know of anyone else in the campaign who did so.”

Are Iranians really the friendliest people in the world?

A buddy of mine recently returned from there. This was the 63rd country he visited so far and he said he had never encounter such friendly and hospitable people anywhere else in the world. He said almost everyone he started talking to on the streets tried to drag him home for dinner and a possible sleepover. I heard similar things from many other travellers too. But since Iran is becoming more and more popular as a travel destination I'm guessing this is the last opportunity to go there and experience their famous hospitality, before the tourists start to annoy the local population. (Apparently Isfahan is already pretty crowded by the tourists.)

Monthly shots to prevent HIV would replace daily pills

HIV/AIDS is no longer the death sentence it once was, but maintaining the strict regimen required to keep the virus at bay — one or more pills daily — still poses a major challenge to many people who are infected. Adherence is low among some populations, given the effort that is required to obtain, keep and store the medications.

That may soon change. On Monday, scientists reported an important advance in the development of a long-acting antiretroviral shot. According to an international study involving 309 patients, an injection that combines two drugs, cabotegravir and rilpivirine, appears to be as safe and effective at suppressing HIV as the daily oral regimen.

Writing in the Lancet, David Margolis of ViiV Healthcare, called it “the next revolution in HIV therapy.”

In the study, which was conducted at 50 centers in the United States, Germany, Canada, Spain, France and Germany, patients were begun on 20 weeks of daily oral medication. Once that medication had brought their viral loads down, they were given the shots as a “maintenance therapy.” Some were given the shot at four-week intervals and others at eight-week intervals. A control group continued to take the pills.

The majority of the patients tolerated the therapy well, though nearly everyone reported some mild to moderate pain at the injection site. The rates of some adverse events like headaches were similar across all three groups.

At 96 weeks, 84 percent of the patients in the oral medication group were able to keep their viral load suppressed, compared with 87 percent of the four-week shot group and 94 percent of the eight-week shot group.

The shots could revolutionize patient care in places like Africa, where it can be difficult for many people to get to a pharmacy regularly. But Mark A. Boyd, a professor at the University of Adelaide, wrote in a commentary piece accompanying the main article that there are trade-offs with both a pill and injection.

In his home country of Australia, for instance, he said people can get up to a six-month supply for antiretroviral pills. For them, going to a health-care provider for a monthly shot actually may be less convenient.

“This is compounded by the fact that health-care systems are generally not configured to facilitate regular, recurrent injections in a timely and convenient way to people who are well,” he wrote. “Changing this will take innovation, political will and time.”

We had previously contracted with an outside vendor to provide certain services for Snopes.com. That contractual relationship ended earlier this year, but the vendor will not acknowledge the change in contractual status and continues to essentially hold the Snopes.com web site hostage. Although we maintain editorial control (for now), the vendor will not relinquish the site’s hosting to our control, so we cannot modify the site, develop it, or — most crucially — place advertising on it. The vendor continues to insert their own ads and has been withholding the advertising revenue from us.

Our legal team is fighting hard for us, but, having been cut off from all revenue, we are facing the prospect of having no financial means to continue operating the site and paying our staff (not to mention covering our legal fees) in the meanwhile.

As misinformation has increasingly threatened democracies around the world (including our own), Snopes.com has stood in the forefront of fighting for truth and dispelling misinformation online. It is vital that these efforts continue, so we are asking the Snopes.com community to donate what they can. (Our suggested donation is $10, but if you can give more please consider doing so — every little bit helps.)

We need our community now more than ever, as it is only through your support that Snopes.com can remain the community and resource we all know and love.

Sincerely yours,

Team Snopes

I have this buddy who's bisexual and had anal sex with a guy. Anyway he told me privately and how much enjoyed it (he bottomed). However he NEVER wants to talk about it (not him bottoming just the sex in general). Anyway one day I slightly mentioned it and he threw a big fit and bitched at me threating to beat me up saying that was a personal shit (reminder he already announced he was bi I didn't out him). He's not exactly a fem guy so I guess he didn't want to seem like the "girl" by bottoming. Anyway in your opinion is him being secrective about him sex life internal homophobia?

Chuck Schumer: A Better Deal For American Workers

Americans are clamoring for bold changes to our politics and our economy. They feel, rightfully, that both systems are rigged against them, and they made that clear in last year’s election. American families deserve a better deal so that this country works for everyone again, not just the elites and special interests. Today, Democrats will start presenting that better deal to the American people.

There used to be a basic bargain in this country that if you worked hard and played by the rules, you could own a home, afford a car, put your kids through college and take a modest vacation every year while putting enough away for a comfortable retirement. In the second half of the 20th century, millions of Americans achieved this solid middle-class lifestyle. I should know — I grew up in that America.

But things have changed.

Today’s working Americans and the young are justified in having greater doubts about the future than any generation since the Depression. Americans believe they’re getting a raw deal from both the economic and political systems in our country. And they are right. The wealthiest special interests can spend an unlimited, undisclosed amount of money to influence elections and protect their special deals in Washington. As a result, our system favors short-term gains for shareholders instead of long-term benefits for workers.

And for far too long, government has gone along, tilting the economic playing field in favor of the wealthy and powerful while putting new burdens on the backs of hard-working Americans.

Democrats have too often hesitated from taking on those misguided policies directly and unflinchingly — so much so that many Americans don’t know what we stand for. Not after today. Democrats will show the country that we’re the party on the side of working people — and that we stand for three simple things.

First, we’re going to increase people’s pay. Second, we’re going to reduce their everyday expenses. And third, we’re going to provide workers with the tools they need for the 21st-century economy.

Over the next several months, Democrats will lay out a series of policies that, if enacted, will make these three things a reality. We’ve already proposed creating jobs with a $1 trillion infrastructure plan; increasing workers’ incomes by lifting the minimum wage to $15; and lowering household costs by providing paid family and sick leave.

On Monday we are announcing three new policies to advance our goals.

Right now, there is nothing to stop vulture capitalists from egregiously raising the price of lifesaving drugs without justification. We’re going to fight for rules to stop prescription drug price gouging and demand that drug companies justify price increases to the public. And we’re going to push for empowering Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices for older Americans.

I hate James Taylor.

Look 'im up if you don't know him. If you, he was (is?) a narcissistic, privileged, straight white drug addict who had a surprising but medium-sized talent writing comforting ballads sung by the appearance of a kind of sexy, sensitive everyman. Bullshit. JT was/is a bitter, opportunistic businessman-musician who's managed to hold out an "I'm still a hot fuck" aura even as an old, bald man.

He turned on dumb Carly and after she endured his raging entitlement episodes and drug addiction, she then realized she was a bigger star and that she wanted to be pounded by non-narcissists. Now he's renounced her name and disowned his kids. Bluebood deep-down hates Jew ex-wife?

Enjoy the banality--both of them drone on in a haze of mutual self-absorption, as if the world cares.

I'd fuck him (here) but she has the remnant of a soul, which he doesn't. James Taylor is like the perfect, efficient Nazi.

Report: Donald Trump Jr. ‘miserable’

Rebecca Savransky July 19, 2017 - 07:39 AM EDT Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly "miserable" and can't wait for the next four years to end.

A friend of President Trump's sons told People that Trump Jr. and Eric Trump "never wanted this."

“Don can’t do any deals, because he’ll be overly scrutinized. He just goes to work every day and is miserable," a source in their circle added.

Trump Jr. is facing backlash after news surfaced earlier this month that he took a meeting last year with a Russian lawyer.

Last week, Trump Jr. released a chain of emails detailing his conversations about setting up the meeting with the Russian lawyer who he was told had compromising information on Hillary Clinton. Trump Jr. has since appeared on Fox News, where he said he would likely would have "done things a little a differently" in retrospect.

President Trump has defended his son, saying most politicians would have taken similar meetings.

A family friend especially close to Trump Jr. and Eric Trump told People the loyalty within their family is "insane."

“They would never speak against their dad," the family friend said.

The source in the brothers' circle added: “You can’t bite the hand that feeds you, but he [Don Jr.] can’t wait for these four years to be over.”

How to get Millennial to work

Flexibility and personal time. In this age of technology, employees are no longer limited to the 9-to-5 workday, or regulated to their office desk. In fact, because of this, work/life balance has never been more popular.

According to the study linked above by Deloitte, when choosing a job, the number one priority for Millennials is one that offers a good work/life balance. That means that the companies that offer flexible schedules will have a better chance at snagging and retaining top Millennial talent. Additionally, give them some personal time throughout the day so that they can work on personal projects, attend training sessions, volunteer, or just have a couple minutes of downtime.

Bonus tip: Not all Millennials want to work from a remote location. Some would rather come into the workplace at 10am, and stay until after 6pm.

Get to know your employees so that you know they're ideal schedules and how they want to spend personal time when on the clock.

Provide frequent feedback. On the outside it may appear that Millennials may crave freedom. The fact of the matter is that they still demand to know how they're performing and want to be accountable.

According to a report by the University of North Carolina, regular, honest, and constructive feedback will help make these employees feel fulfilled at their job.

In the past, leaders this was done every six months with performance reviews. Millennials may want something more often, but the good news is that it doesn't have to formal.

You can simply pop-by their workplace to offer some encouragement or shot them a quick email with a couple of pointers.

You can also implement an "open door policy" where Millennials are free to come-in and ask questions.

Create new titles and in-between steps. Despite the misconceptions, Millennials aren't lazy or slackers. They're committed to furthering their careers and don't want to wait any more than three years for a promotion. Same goes for a title change. They need to "prove" to their friends and share their new status online.

This doesn't mean that you should give more rewards without a reason, it means that you should consider incentives. Produce incentive like a bonus or paying for them to attend a training course. This gives them assurance that they're on the right track.

Encourage multiple ways to collaborate. Don't forget; This generation loves their devices. It makes sense. They grew up with technology at their fingertips and they have no qualms with harnessing its power if it makes them more productive

If you haven't already, incorporate new ways to collaborate with your team that takes advantage of technology.

Additionally, don't hesitate to host roundtable discussions where you encourage innovative thinking.

Offer office perks. Just because you don't have the budget of tech-titans like Google doesn't mean that you can't offer office perks.

For instance, you could create Zen spaces where employees can decompress in peace. Encourage them to take breaks in a room that has a couple of plants, better lighting, a nice coffee machine.

Find that something that your employees would enjoy. You could also have weekly pizza parties when a goal has been met or allow them to bring-in their dogs.

Cut the bullshit. "Millennials have a very low tolerance for inauthenticity. They value colleagues that treat each other with respect. They gravitate towards supervisors who are relatable and accessible," writes Peter Gasca in Entrepreneur.

Jenny Gottstein, director of games at The Go Game and a millennial herself, tells Gasca that it's simple to define bullshit.

"If you are going to reference pop culture in order to relate to your millennial employees, just make sure you actually know what you are talking about. "If you are simply out of touch with millennial culture, embrace that and just be yourself. Never try too hard to impress people. Just remember: Most millennials would rather work with Dwight Schrute than Michael Scott (there is no shame in having to look up that reference)."

Bette Davis vs. Katharine Hepburn

Forget the Davis and Crawford comparisons - that was nothing but a silly feud. The real comparison should be between Davis and Hepburn.

Both were born (within a year of each other) and raised in New England, and both started their Hollywood film careers in the early 1930s. Hepburn received (and won) her first Oscar nomination in 1934, while Davis got her first nomination in 1935. Hepburn ended up with 12 nominations and 4 wins; Davis with 11 nominations and 2 wins. All of their nominations were for Best Actress in a Leading Role. They went head-to-head four times - in 1936 (Davis won), 1941, 1943, and 1963.

Davis' final film credit was in 1989, the same year she died. Hepburn's final credit was in 1994; she died in 2003.

Both women had reputations for being tough as nails and for doing things their own way.

Keiynan Lonsdale comes clean about his sexuality. The actor best known for his role as Wally West a.k.a. Kid Flash on "The Flash" reveals that he's bisexual. "I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, & I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I'm becoming," he wrote on Instagram.

"Spent way too many years hating myself, thinking I was less valuable because I was different.. which is just untrue. A couple years ago I was able to accept myself, & it saved my life, but now I've gotten to a new road block & I feel kind of lost. I gotta take the next step & actually embrace who I am, which is pretty exciting. Not faking s**t anymore, not apologising for falling in love with people no matter their gender."

The 25-year-old star went on, "I've become bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared... no one should feel like that about themselves, especially when there is so much good life to live. Ya know more & more I see so many young people being their best / truest selves, it's f**king inspiring... so what have I been waiting for!? Who knows."

"Everyone in their own time. I hope we can all learn to embrace who we are & not judge people who aren't exactly the same as us. The truth is we are all family, we're all one. Just love. Keiy," he concluded.

Spoiled irrational uncle

OK - This is pissing me off and need to vent! My gay uncle bought me a $300 lego set (4000 pieces that he begged me for). Fine, he loves legos, but the dumbass doesn't realize it's a BLOCKO set not a genuine Lego set. When I told him he was all like "what's the difference?" I told him it's like when he hooks up on Grindr with 10" and gets 5".

So out of kindness I made a half ass attempt at the set (up to bag 2) but it's so cheap it barely works and now for the past week, it sits untouched, collecting dust. I would rather be playing Roblocks and using my iPad etc, you know the good gifts bought me, by those who took five seconds to figure out what I liked and would need.

He loves legos and said if I don't want to do it, he will do some and we take can turns. He had a fucking meltdown! He's too stupid and immature. All he does is build BLOCKO penises and other rude and crude gay paraphernalia. He doesn't want to do it right, but I can't touch them either. I said I will pack them up until he is ready to continue.

Fucking meltdown #2 - don't touch! $300 dollars for BLOCKOs just sitting there strewn across my table. I wish I he'd never bought it. It's not my fault he payed LEGO prices for BLOCKO ripoffs.

India, India You're my love song India you're my love song

In the flowers You can have me in the flowers We will dance alone And live our useless lives India stupid on the carpet floor India stupid on the carpet floor We dance upon the carpet floor And reel around

India, India, India, India, India I'm American, ha ha ha India

Caroline is really great She serves the muck Upon a tray And little rich boy don't you cry You kiss me in the anodyne See the ceiling raining spit The beach is backwards isn't it

India don't you cry India see the ceiling raining tears You will cry a thousand tears

All the women form a line Put your face upon a line This is for the discotheque This is stupid, I object And I love you and I love you And please me, please me, please me Please me, please me, please me Please me, please me, please me India, India, India, India

Sanders keeping door open on 2020

What is going to run as? A fake Democrat? The DNC needs to wake up.

"Bernie Sanders, who battled Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic primary and created a revolutionary movement among millennials, is having discussions about running for president again.

“Yes, is the answer,” said one Sanders associate who helped with the senator’s previous bid, in response to a question about whether the Independent senator from Vermont had begun to think about another run.

“He thinks he's earned the right to run again and he believes if he would have been the [Democratic] candidate he would have won against Trump.”

The source also suggested that Sanders is making his plans with other candidates in mind.

“The last thing he's going to do is step aside and let Joe Biden take it,” the Sanders associate said."

----

“He's part of the Democratic leadership in the Senate and helped raise millions of dollars to help down ballot Democrats,” he said. “He's helping to reform the Democratic Party. I think it speaks for itself.”

----

The Sanders associate said the one candidate who might give Sanders pause about trying to run for the White House again is progressive Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who would likely run on a similar platform.

“Some of the Bernie folks feels she would take the fire away from him,” the source said."

----

“He's keeping almost the same schedule that a presidential candidate would keep,” the Sanders associate said. “He's doing more travel, more rallies, more for the DNC than anyone else.

“He realizes this is his moment and his taking advantage of it,” the source said.

Why Did Funk, Soul, and Rhythm & Blues Disappeared From The Charts?

I always felt that funk, soul, and R&B were the best musical forms in the world. They dominated the charts from the 1950's to the 1980's. Then when Ronald Reagan came into office. He cut music classes for the poor, etc. I remember a time when groups like the Temptations, the Dramatics, the Emotions, Earth, Wind & Fire, Slave, the Ohio Players, Isaac Hayes, Gladys Knight & The Pips, the Supremes, Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, the Isley Brothers, James Brown, and many others dominated the charts back in the day. What went wrong?

Usher Punished For Unleashing Bieber Plague upon the Earth

"One of the humans responsible for foisting Justin Bieber on society, Usher, is being sued for $10 million for allegedly exposing a sex partner to herpes. And that’s what you get for foisting Justin Bieber on society."

REX TILLERSON DEBATES QUITTING AFTER ‘UNPROFESSIONAL’ TRUMP BASHES JEFF SESSIONS

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is growing increasingly frustrated with the Trump administration and could quit before the year is through, according to reports.

Two sources familiar with Tillerson’s conversations with friends told CNN over the weekend that he has grown so frustrated with President Donald Trump and his administration that there may soon be a “Rexit.”

The change in Tillerson’s tone followed a stressful week for the secretary of state. He was found to have violated U.S. sanctions against Russia while working as CEO of Exxon Mobil. Also, Trump publicly assailed one of Tillerson’s fellow Cabinet members, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying he regretted hiring him.

Tillerson, the sources said, viewed Trump’s comments as unprofessional.

Early Monday, Trump again attacked Sessions on Twitter, calling him “beleaguered” and wondering aloud why he wasn’t investigating Trump’s campaign rival Hillary Clinton.

Before last week, Tillerson had strongly maintained he would see through his task of reorganizing the entire State Department after Trump’s March budget proposal laid out plans to cut $10 billion from its roughly $47 billion in funding. But that resolve seems to have dimmed.

The sources acknowledged that Tillerson could have been venting after a tough week, but his frustration is just the latest in a long list of times he has butted heads with the president and his administration.

Last month, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner was the one calling Tillerson “unprofessional.” The secretary of state reportedly blew up at top Trump administration staffers during a meeting in White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus’s office.

Four people familiar with the details of the meeting described the heated exchange to Politico. During his tirade, Tillerson quarreled with the director of presidential personnel, Johnny DeStefano, and made clear he didn’t want the White House to “have any role in staffing.”

Tillerson has been frustrated after Trump and the White House rejected a number of his hiring decisions. Early this year, Trump vetoed Tillerson’s plan to hire Elliott Abrams as his second in command because Abrams was critical of Trump and his policy positions during the 2016 campaign.

Early this year, Tillerson was also left scrambling, along with other Cabinet members, in doing damage control after the administration implemented a ban on foreign travel to the U.S. from six Muslim-majority nations. The Cabinet was not consulted beforehand. The move gathered serious legal pushback and is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court this fall.

In late June, the White House also failed to coordinate with the State Department when it issued a warning to the Syrian regime about using chemical weapons. Such warnings are usually issued through, or at least coordinated with, the State Department.

Trump has also contradicted and overruled Tillerson's public statements about whether the U.S. should mediate in a dispute between Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Both sources said that Tillerson’s frustrations with these situations, and many other tug-of-wars between the White House and Cabinet members, are increasing noticeably and that he has come to realize things won’t change anytime soon.

Gay Culture and the Silent Generation (@1925-1945)

As someone born in 1966 (part of Generation X), i was very much aware growing up of my parents' generation, the Silent Generation, particularly in terms of how they much dominated gay culture when I was growing up in the 1970s and early 80s. I am also very aware of how so many things that dominated gay culture back then are now gone today, not simply because of the massive devastation of the AIDS epidemic, but just because so much time has passed and they are dying out now. This was a remarkable generation--the ones who really went through gay liberation--and much of what they really cared about has changed from their day in the 70s and early 80s to today.

What do you think really characterized them? I'll post inside my thoughts of what that generation valued that we lost. (I'm not so interested in the shallow things like bell bottoms or tight jeans or the clone look, but things that really marked their culture.)

ASkars Interviews New Beard

This handsome actor has starred on two hit TV series in the past few years. His latest performance received some serious accolades.

But let’s talk about his love life.

He was in a relationship for several years, but that is now over. Curiously, he wants to lock down a new girlfriend as quickly as possible.

"He’s not interested in dating around. He just wants someone under contract so he can get back to focusing on his career. He thinks he can trust her because she’s already been through this with [another actor]."

His target? A model who is the ex-girlfriend of very famous film actor.

We hear that the contract is now being negotiated by both teams. Interestingly, part of the contract emphasizes each person’s obligations through The Emmy Awards.

Perhaps that’s a negotiating point because the model’s ex failed to take her to The Oscars?

Pat Benatar is NOT a rocker!

I was watching a documentary on Pat Benatar, and the phrase "queen of rock 'n roll" came up.

There seems to be this widespread belief in the music world that in the 1980s, Benatar was "the queen of rock 'n roll". But, she sounds totally pop. You can't be a rock star without sounding like a rock star. You can't be a rock star without living like a rock star either. Pat does neither.

If I were to give one woman the title of "queen of rock 'n roll" it would have to be Joan Jett– she lives, breathes, and dreams rock 'n roll.

No offense to Pat's fans, but it's time someone told the truth – she's not a rock star!

I've heard that some of the crew from Sunset BLVD think she's a rude b%tch in person, and that they have nothing good to say about her from anyone who's met her. Anyone care to dispute this? Her daughter does seem stuck up though, so maybe she gets it natural? Lets hope not.

MSNBC Makes Network History With Stretch Of No. 1 Cable Ratings The channel enjoyed a week as the winner.

For the first time, MSNBC spent five consecutive weekdays as the most-watched cable network in prime time, bringing in more total viewers than its top news rivals, Fox News and CNN, and all other cable channels, according to Nielsen.

MSNBC has traditionally surpassed CNN in ratings but fallen behind Fox News’ dominating prime-time lineup that for years featured Bill O’Reilly at 8 p.m. Eastern time, followed by Megyn Kelly at 9 p.m., leading into Sean Hannity at 10 p.m.

But 2017 brought lots of changes to Fox News, with Kelly defecting to NBC News early in the year and the cable news network parting ways with Bill O’Reilly amid mounting allegations of sexual harassment and bad behavior.

Fox News took second place for the week, Nielsen reported, with MSNBC averaging 2.34 million viewers for July 17-21 and Fox News averaging 2.25 million.

While MSNBC has bested Fox News in weekday prime-time total viewers in the past ― once in May 2017 and previously in September 2012 ― last week was the first time the network was the No. 1 most-watched network during weekday prime time in all of cable television. Weekday prime time refers to shows airing from 8 to 11 p.m. Monday to Friday.

In individual time slots, Rachel Maddow continued her monthlong winning streak over Fox News and CNN during the 9 p.m. hour. But last week, Maddow’s show was the second most-watched program on all of cable, falling just behind WWE Entertainment.

It’s been a news-heavy summer as bombshells continue to drop about members of President Donald Trump’s campaign interacting with Kremlin-linked individuals before and after the election. The president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law and top adviser, Jared Kushner, and his former campaign manager Paul Manafort will testify this week in closed-door congressional sessions investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

CBS reporter compares Mayor Bill de Blasio to the "cowardly lion after he runs away from an angry 63-year-old Queens woman.

A CBS New York reporter compared Mayor Bill de Blasio to the "cowardly lion" from The Wizard of Oz after he fled a confrontation on Thursday with an angry 63-year-old Queens woman.

Vickie Paladino and her husband were driving through their neighborhood when they spotted the far-left mayor, who was there to announce a $16 million initiative to fix sidewalks damaged by tree roots. Paladino was so upset over de Blasio's trip to Germany to speak at a G-20 protest in lieu of attending a vigil for slain New York police officer Miosotis Familia that she left the car to berate him.

As de Blasio approached her and a group of others to shake hands, she started to ask about his trip. He turned around with his security detail and went to his car.

"I want to know why you let your police officers down and our country down by going to Germany and protesting against our country," she yelled at de Blasio. "I want to know why you're doing that. OK? I don't care about the trees. We'll work it out."

CBS reporter Marcia Kramer had a scathing assessment of de Blasio, who she said "simply fled" when Paladino started her criticism.

"The woman in the white shirt single-handedly brought WrestleMania to the streets of Whitestone, Queens, but her opponent Bill de Blasio was no Hulk Hogan or The Rock," Kramer said. "He was more like the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard Of Oz."

Paladino caught the attention of the media assembled for the event, and she told reporters that she'd "had it" with de Blasio and doubted he had a friend in the city.

"This is got to do with a liberal, socialist mayor who is running our city and has no regard for our country," she said.

"Why did you go to Germany? Why did you stand with the communists, with the anarchists, with the socialists when you’re supposed to be here, taking care of our business, our police officers," she said in a later interview with Kramer.

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

Laguardia would have handled it. This video showing him pivoting and running away should be used by all the other mayorial candidates.
