With the hotly anticipated finals of the UK’s X-Factor drawing near, Wealth-X today released a list of the world’s top 10 richest recording artists. American pop music icon Madonna emerged at the top of the list with a net worth of US$800 million.
At 56 years old, Madonna has had an illustrious career in the music industry over the past three decades, selling over 300 million records worldwide and inking a series of lucrative contract deals, including a US$120 million contract with Live Nation in 2007. The “Queen of Pop” has also ventured into other industries such as filmmaking, fashion, and children’s books.
In second place is British rock and roll music legend Paul McCartney, who gained worldwide fame as a member of the Beatles. During his Beatles career from 1960 to 1970, however, McCartney only made US$7 million. The rest of his US$660 million fortune was amassed during his later career as a solo artist. At 72 years old, he is the oldest recording artist on the list.
The youngest musician on the list is 33-year-old American pop music sensation Beyoncé, whose personal fortune of US$440 million lands her in the 10th spot. Beyoncé, however, is married to hip hop star Jay Z, and the combined net worth of this music power couple is US$950 million, putting them right on the threshold of billionaire status.
Another American hip hop pioneer on the list is Dr Dre, whose fortune of US$650 million earns him third place. The 49-year-old is the co-founder of audio products manufacturer Beats Electronics, which was sold to Apple in 2014 for US$3 billion. Wealth-X estimates that Dr Dre pocketed US$630 million from the Beats deal, before taxes.
Below are the top 5 richest recording artists:

Legendary civil rights activist and U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) challenged the civil rights record of Democratic candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) by saying Thursday he had never seen Sanders in the course of his many years working for racial justice.
Lewis was addressing the Congressional Black Caucus, which endorsed Sanders’ rival, Hillary Clinton.
Lewis said of Sanders, “I never saw him, I never met him. I was a chair of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee for three years from 1963 to 1966. I was involved in the sit-ins, the Freedom Ride, the March on Washington, the march from Selma to Montgomery, and directed the Voter Education Project for six years. But I met Hillary Clinton. I met President Clinton.
Sanders won the New Hampshire primary this week after a hair-narrow loss to Clinton in Iowa early this month. But Sanders has consistently struggled to attract voters of color, the Washington Post reports. Those demographics will become increasingly important in primaries scheduled in states that have large communities of color.

Really enjoyed myself--the production was a lot of fun, and the dancing was great, although it amazed me Susan Strohman would not let Renne Fleming and Nathan Gunn do more than about four tiny steps around the stage. Both Fleming and Gunn are in great voice, though I was amazed to see how Gunn looks older than his 45 years (he is still handsome though).
The second male lead, Alek Shrader, was gorgeous in an innocent way. Kelli O'Hara was surprisingly unmemorable as Valencienne until the final act, when she got to be drunk and was very funny. I had never seen Carson Elrod before, but he looked and acted exactly like a clone of Screech from "Saved by the Bell."
The merry widow's many suitors all seemed flaming (except for Gunn and Shrader, who were the only two handsome ones among them, unfortunately).

ry Clinton loves black people. And black people love Hillary—or so it seems. Black politicians have lined up in droves to endorse her, eager to prove their loyalty to the Clintons in the hopes that their faithfulness will be remembered and rewarded. Black pastors are opening their church doors, and the Clintons are making themselves comfortably at home once again, engaging effortlessly in all the usual rituals associated with “courting the black vote,” a pursuit that typically begins and ends with Democratic politicians making black people feel liked and taken seriously. Doing something concrete to improve the conditions under which most black people live is generally not required.
Hillary is looking to gain momentum on the campaign trail as the primaries move out of Iowa and New Hampshire and into states like South Carolina, where large pockets of black voters can be found. According to some polls, she leads Bernie Sanders by as much as 60 percent among African Americans. It seems that we—black people—are her winning card, one that Hillary is eager to play.
And it seems we’re eager to get played. Again.
The love affair between black folks and the Clintons has been going on for a long time. It began back in 1992, when Bill Clinton was running for president. He threw on some shades and played the saxophone on The Arsenio Hall Show. It seems silly in retrospect, but many of us fell for that. At a time when a popular slogan was “It’s a black thing, you wouldn’t understand,” Bill Clinton seemed to get us. When Toni Morrison dubbed him our first black president, we nodded our heads. We had our boy in the White House. Or at least we thought we did.
Black voters have been remarkably loyal to the Clintons for more than 25 years. It’s true that we eventually lined up behind Barack Obama in 2008, but it’s a measure of the Clinton allure that Hillary led Obama among black voters until he started winning caucuses and primaries. Now Hillary is running again. This time she’s facing a democratic socialist who promises a political revolution that will bring universal healthcare, a living wage, an end to rampant Wall Street greed, and the dismantling of the vast prison state—many of the same goals that Martin Luther King Jr. championed at the end of his life. Even so, black folks are sticking with the Clinton brand.
What have the Clintons done to earn such devotion? Did they take extreme political risks to defend the rights of African Americans? Did they courageously stand up to right-wing demagoguery about black communities? Did they help usher in a new era of hope and prosperity for neighborhoods devastated by deindustrialization, globalization, and the disappearance of work?
No. Quite the opposite.

She was called "The Queen of Tejano music" and the Mexican equivalent of Madonna.
Selena was murdered at the age of 23 on March 31, 1995 by Yolanda Saldívar, the former president of her fan club. On April 12, 1995, two weeks after her death, George W. Bush, governor of Texas at the time, declared her birthday "Selena Day" in Texas.
In 1997, Warner Brothers produced Selena, a film based on her life starring Jennifer Lopez.

I grew up poor and find it absolutely infuriating to throw out perfectly good food when it's possible to doctor it to my tastes. So thanks in advance for any suggestions about the following taking up space in my fridge/freezer.
1. A quart of highly spiced chicken tikka masala. Dry as a bone. Would love to make a soup or salad out of it, or produce a sauce. There is obviously turmeric going on as well as a bunch of Indian spices I can't identify. I much prefer Thai curry to Indian.
2. A ton of Chinese delivery rice in the freezer. My Mom used to make rice pudding or add it into soups but neither interests me,. I have never had congee and have been wondering about that. Or an interesting recipe for fried rice.
3. A friend gave me a ton of home-grown beets, which I roasted and froze. I love beet salad in the summertime but would like to make something warm from it now.
4. The remnants of batch cooking gone amok: I made a huge amount of (very good) spaghetti sauce with turkey sausage that I can no longer stand to look at. Would love to know if I can re-purpose it.

Thoughts from the last 4 threads:
Tonya Pinkins gave a 3 day seminar at The Public 12 years ago and it turned my whole career around. Went from not auditioning at all to landing major roles onstage and on TV. On a side note, Tonya has already been picked up to sing in one of Marc Siegel's Broadway by the Decade concerts. DL fave KZ too!
Love! Valour! Compassion! was favorite night at the theatre ever. I was in college at the University of Michigan and heard about this play with Stephen Bogardus & Stephen Spinella who I had seen on the Tonys in Falsettos and Angels in America. And Nathan Lane who I was in love with! And the brother of my friend was in it! Randy Becker! And it was about gay men in the Catskills. I had come out of the closet a year before and spent two summers in the Catskills doing theater and meeting my eventual husband. And there was nudity. And the Times said there was fine ensemble acting. I had to see it. It was at MTC at the time and was sold out. I placed a call to Randy but hadn't heard back. I inquired about ushering but no go. Then I just bought a plane ticket to NYC determined that I would find a way to see it. I went to the lobby after a performance and found Randy who then was able to get me a house seat for $20! I went the next night and LOVED it. I tell this whole story because it's the whole experience that made this play memorable to me.
I've played many principal roles but one of my two favorite experiences ever onstage was being in the chorus of Hello Dolly. It's a joyful show and a great show for the chorus. I was so happy that summer in Eugene, Oregon. By the way, the other favorite experience was playing Kim McAffee in an all male Bye Bye Birdie.

Jay Leno and his “enormous chin” should mind their own business.
Howard Stern blasted the former “Tonight Show” host for telling the Daily News that Jimmy Kimmel was losing the late night ratings wars because he has a “mean streak.”
“No one is more cruel than Jay Leno,” Stern said on his SiriusXM show on Wednesday. “Jimmy Kimmel is one of the nicest guys on the planet. ... Jay is putting his enormous chin where it doesn't belong.”
During a chat with The News Tuesday, Leno said Kimmel, a longtime Stern pal, had treated him poorly when they competed in late night. He gave two reasons: one, that Kimmel had a “mean streak” and two, because the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host had been trying to curry favor with Stern.
“That’s not what happened,” Stern said noting that Kimmel had been friendly with Stern long before Kimmel’s infamous appearance on Leno’s “Tonight Show” in 2010 — when Kimmel ripped into the host for shanghaiing the NBC talk show back from Conan O’Brien.
Kimmel, Stern said, had actually been simmering about Leno’s behavior for decades.
“Jimmy loved (David) Letterman and didn’t like when Jay plotted against him (to become the host of “The Tonight Show” in 1992),” the shock jock said.
Leno and the King of All Media have a long acrimonious history that spun out of control when Stern sidekick “Stuttering” John Melendez jumped ship to join Leno’s show in 2004. The offer had been made behind Stern’s back.
He also took issue with Leno’s explanation for the feud. Leno had said Kimmel had a talk “radio vibe... it’s a typical radio versus standup comic situation,” he explained.
“When you have to look an audience in the eye, you’re not quite as brave as when you’re just talking into a microphone,” Leno added. “When an audience can react to what you’re saying and you see them doing that, it’s a little different.”
Leno is the host of a new CNBC car program, “Jay Leno’s Garage” — but Stern was not impressed.
“Jay likes cars because cars can't tell him he sucks,” Stern spat.
Kimmel was not available to comment Wednesday, his rep Lewis Kay said.

Big chunk of Airbnb's revenue comes from year-round rentals, study finds
Nearly a third of the revenue generated by the short-term rental company Airbnb in 12 major markets comes from homes and apartments that are rented out on a full-time basis.
That was one of the conclusions of a study commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Assn., a trade group for the nation's hotels. The group said the findings point out a "very disturbing trend" that suggest the rentals are operating like "unregulated hotels."

Have you experienced this?
This morning I experienced it. I got on the subway and I noticed this woman at the subway door kept staring at me an then muttered something under her breath. And she just kept on staring. I was intimidated and point blank asked her "Do you have a problem? You keep staring at me." The woman (I'll call her intrusive woman) across from her piped in, "That's not how I saw it." I told her "Maybe you didn't interpret it that way but I did." Then the other woman continued to stare at me. I called her on it again.
The woman across from her again piped in and made some rude comment and I told her she was a bitch and to mind her own business. Ok, that was rude of me to say but she kept interjecting and I wasn't asking for her opinion. Then other people joined in and started attacking me. The intrusive woman said "He's eruptive. I'm worried he's going to punch my face in" to the man beside her. I responded "I would not punch your face in. I wouldn't waste time on your ugly face". So people are supposed to accept others staring at them and not say anything? Then someone said "Now everybody is staring at YOU."
The woman never did say why she kept staring at me.

I always take responsibility for my mistakes, but in my late teens my older brother decided that he needed to intervene and tell me how to live my life. He had always bossed me around but as I got older and tried to distance myself from him he doubled his efforts to control me.
He convinced me to drop out of high school and get a job; he went to where I worked and told my boss I was quitting because I had found a better job, which wasn't true; the "better job" he had lined up for me was a forklift driver which I was not trained or licensed to do and I was fired.
At this point I had no diploma, no job and no prospects. But I did have a car loan for a car I didn't need but my brother decided I should buy. I finally said to him that in a two year period he managed to ruin my life. He never took responsibility for what he had done and until the day he died he always told me what a screw up I was for not listening to his advice.

AMMAN - Jordanian authorities have returned a forest green Royal Marines hoodie to Henry Cavill on the set of war drama "Sand Castle." A spokesman claims the hoodie (below, in better days) had been in contact with known terror suspects, and was begging to be strapped to a suicide bomber. This follows an incident only days ago where the hoodie caused a commotion in an Amman souk, when it tried unsuccessfully to feed itself to a camel. The Amman detectives who returned to hoodie to Mr. Cavill at that time were not unsympathetic to the hoodie's situation, and urged Mr. Cavill to relegate the hoodie "to the occasional Sunday at home."

'Zoolander 2' Gets Critically Savaged
10:37 PM PST 2/9/2016 by Abid Rahman
It was never meant to be this way.
Zoolander 2, the long-awaited sequel to one of the most cultish and quotable comedies of recent times, was supposed to deflate the over-important absurdity of the fashion world with some memorably silly humor and give the world a bunch of new lines and catchphrases. Alas, the critics are almost tripping over themselves to deride Zoolander 2 as a film full of rehashed, reheated jokes that don't go anywhere and that's before they all take umbrage with the labyrinth plot.
As of Tuesday evening the sequel had a 5.8/10 rating on IMDB and a score of 38 on Metacritic. But the numbers and stats don't quite show how much the film was detested by the critics. So if you're Ben Stiller, you may want to look away now.
The Hollywood Reporter's movie critic David Rooney described the comedy in Zoolander 2 as "too often misplaced" and that the film was "wildly over-plotted" and "under-energized." Rooney took particular issue with the story elements saying that "not one of the patchy sequel's threads really holds together, even within the elastic boundaries of farce." Rooney enjoyed the moments when Will Ferrel's Mugatu took center stage but ultimately said the film was "like a cute little outfit burdened with too many accessories, Zoolander 2 is a victim of overkill."
Entertainment Weekly gave Zoolander 2 a C minus score with reviewer Chris Nashawaty brutally suggesting that the film "feels sad and desperate, like a comic who doesn’t know when to get off stage." Nashawaty ends his review with the notion that the "only good news is that at the pace the franchise is moving, we won’t get Zoolander 3 until 2030."
Variety's Justin Chang was scathing in his review describing Zoolander 2 as a "disappointment-slash-misfire, the orange mocha crappuccino of movie sequels."
TheWrap's Alonso Duralde said "there are no build-ups or pay-offs here, just a lot of random moments" in the film and that "[e]ven with four writers on hand, this smacks of “we’ll make up something hilarious on the spot.”"
Screen Daily's Tim Grierson was equally underwhelmed and opined that "[l]ike many comedy sequels, Zoolander 2 supersizes everything in such a way that it’s much more apparent how few of the jokes are connecting." Little White Lies reviewer said that director and star "Ben Stiller sleepwalks through this drab, inconsequential comedy sequel."
British reviewers were somewhat kinder on Zoolander 2 with most having mixed feelings. The Daily Telegraph's Helen O'Hara recognized the films faults but said it was "fun" to see a sequel. "It seems unlikely that the premise could ever sustain a third film, but if this is Derek’s swan song then he leaves amid a flurry of feathers and bustle," wrote O'Hara.
The Guardian's review was less scathing but ultimately disappointed with Peter Bradshaw describing Stiller and Wilson as "so lukewarm right now." Bradshaw added: "Like a famous band playing live, Derek et al are required to do their greatest hits, not their new stuff — and they don’t really have much in the way of new stuff."

I remember during Blue Jasmine she was criticised for being wishy washy on Woody Allen and being a bit drunk a the Golden Globes but that's it. She's always been a tad pretentious and mannered (even in the trailers for CAROL she's posing and "performing" compared to hoe present and interior Rooney Mara seems) but any gossip is good.

Q: As a queer man of color—I’m Asian—I feel wounded whenever I am exposed to gay men in New York City, Toronto, or any city where white gay men dominate. Gay men, mostly whites and Asians, reject me because of my race, and no one admits to their sexual racism. I understand that sexual attraction is subconscious for many people. But it is unfair for a gay Asian like myself to be constantly marginalized and rejected. I fight for gay rights too. I believe in equality too. I had the same pain of being gay in high school and the same fears when coming out. Why is there no acceptance, no space, no welcome for me in this white-painted gay community? I’m six-foot-one, 160 pounds, fit, and very good-looking. What can I do? I might as well be a sexless monk. —Enraged Dude Details Infuriating Experience
A: “I relate to a lot of what EDDIE is feeling here,” said Joel Kim Booster, a Brooklyn writer and comedian. “The double-edged sword of living in a city with a large gay community is that the community gets so large that we finally have the opportunity to marginalize people within it.”
Jeff Chu, a writer who also lives in Brooklyn, can relate: “Racism still thrives in the gay community, just as in broader society,” said Chu. “Many of us who are Asian-American come out of the closet and walk into this weird bamboo cage, where we’re either fetishized or ignored. Many times I’d go into a gay bar and see guys playing out some gross interracial porno in their heads—with me playing the part of their Chinese pocket gay. Others (the ones I was interested in, to be candid) would act as if I were wearing an invisibility cheongsam.”
Chu feels there’s plenty of blame to go around for this sad state of affairs. “It’s the gay media,” said Chu. “It’s Hollywood. (Even with all the LGBT characters we have on TV now, what images do we have of Asian-American ones?) It’s that LGBT-rights organizations still haven’t diversified enough, especially in their leadership. And it’s all of us, when we’re lazy and don’t confront our own prejudices.”
Booster and Chu are right: Racism is a problem in the gay community, some people within are unfairly and cruelly marginalized, and we all need to confront our own prejudices.
Even you, EDDIE. You cite your height (tall!), weight (slim!), and looks (VGL!) as proof you’ve faced sexual rejection based solely on your race. But short, heavy, average-looking or unconventionally attractive guys face rejection for not being tall, lean, or conventionally hot, just as you’ve faced rejection for not being white. (Though granted, the cultural baggage and biases that inform a preference for, say, tall guys is a lot less toxic than the cultural baggage and biases that inform a preference for white guys—duh, obviously.)
“As a stereotypically short Chinese guy, my first reaction to reading EDDIE’s letter? Damn, he’s six-foot-one! I’m jealous,” said Chu. “And that’s also part of the problem. I, like many others, have internalized an ideal: tall, gym-perfected, blah blah blah—and, above all, white.”
Booster was also struck by your stats. “It’s hard for me to wrap my head around any six-foot-one, fit, VGL guy having trouble getting laid,” said Booster. “On paper, this is the gay ideal! I don’t really consider myself any of those things—and I have a perfectly respectable amount of sex.”
Booster, who somehow manages to have plenty of sex in New York’s “white-painted gay community,” had some practical tips for you. “EDDIE should stay away from the apps if the experience becomes too negative,” Booster said. “If logging on to a hookup app bums him out, take a break. Being a double minority can be isolating, but living in a big city can be great. There are meet-ups and clubs and activities for all stripes. Join a gay volleyball league—truly where gay Asian men thrive—or find one of the many gay Asian nights at one of the gay bars around the city. They’re out there.”

One week after their first one-on-one faceoff, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will take the stage in Milwaukee in a debate hosted by PBS NewsHour in partnership with Facebook.
It comes just a couple of days after Sanders' resounding victory over Clinton in the New Hampshire primary, as Clinton seeks to gin up momentum going into the next set of contests, in which she is favored. The Nevada Democratic caucus is Feb. 20, followed by the South Carolina Democratic primary on Feb. 27, leading up to Super Tuesday on March 1.
[bold]When does Thursday's debate start?[/bold]
It starts at 9 p.m ET. It'll air live on local PBS stations, with a live stream on the PBS NewsHour website, and CNN will simulcast it as well.
[bold]Who will moderate?[/bold]
Moderators are PBS NewsHour co-anchors and managing editors Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff.
[bold]When is the next Republican debate?[/bold]
Hopefully you were planning on staying in on Saturday night, because Republicans will be meeting up in Greenville, S.C., in their last debate before the South Carolina GOP primary on Feb. 20.
[bold]What about the Democrats?[/bold]
Brace yourself: Democrats don't meet up again until March. But after the long wait, there will be two debates in four days (March 6 in Flint, Mich., and March 9 in Miami).

Yes, Segal was originally cast in the movie “10” for the role eventually played by Dudley Moore. He had even started filming and walked out over creative differences, namely the swelling of Julie Andrews’ part.
But there’s one movie he did not walk out of 10 years before (there's that pesky number again), and that was The Owla and the Pussycat, directed by… you guessed it, Herbert Ross.

Yeah, I know, it's not going to be thrill city, USA. But I'm a final candidate for a new job in Sacramento and if I got the offer, I couldn't afford to turn it down. The job doesn't offer relocation, but I'd be earning more than I have before. I've lived in Southern California most of my life (San Diego, North and South OC and, presently, LA), so it wouldn't be as big of a culture shock as moving from North Dakota. The job is in downtown Sacramento. No, nothing to do with politics.
I'm a gay man. Early 30s. Liberal/progressive. Single, sexually active. Work out regularly. Not a huge partier - so, don't really care about clubs/bars. Love the arts (theatre, dance, music, museums, film); diverse and interesting menus at local restaurants; outdoorsy stuff (hiking, especially); volunteer work (most often with LGBT youth and/or homeless). Don't need fancy amenities like doormen, swimming pools or gyms (already have 24 hour fitness national membership) - in other words open to both big multi-unit apartments and single-occupancy homes with a single owner.
Walkability is a HUGE plus to me.
Would prefer to live alone (studio or 1br), but don't want to pay more than $1400.
Can live with a 45 min - 1 hr commute ea/ way, but not more than that.
What's life like in Sacramento?

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has approved the first clinical trial of MDMA to treat anxiety and other psychological illnesses, amid a growing resurgence in therapeutic psychedelic drug usage in the medical community.
“The tide has changed for psychedelic research,” said Brad Burge, the communications director for the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), a California-based nonprofit research group that studies medicinal uses for psychedelics and marijuana and is sponsoring the study. The DEA approved the project on Friday, he said. Unlike Ecstasy or Molly — names for MDMA sold on the street and often mixed with dangerous adulterants — pure MDMA has been proved “sufficiently safe” when taken a limited number of times in moderate doses, MAPS says on its website. The DEA did not immediately respond to a request for comment. MDMA can be useful in psychotherapy for people suffering from anxiety due to life-threatening illnesses because it produces in users a sense of calm, trust and confidence, Burge said. Unlike psychedelics such as LSD and psilocybin, MDMA does not produce hallucinations, he added. The clinical trial will be held in Marin, California, in a psychologist’s office, as opposed to a hospital setting, Burge said. The patients will lie on a couch with a therapist nearby for support and conversation.
In the trial, 18 subjects diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses will attend months of psychotherapy, with MDMA being used in a few sessions in order to facilitate the process, he said. The outcome will be measured by whether using the psychedelic helps reduce people’s anxiety, which will be determined at the end of the sessions by the patient’s feedback and the therapist’s assessments.
Researchers hope that using MDMA alongside psychotherapy will let subjects confront their situation more clearly and allow the positive steps they take during the therapy to “stick,” Burge said.
“It opens them up and makes them more comfortable with the therapist while reducing fear and making them more able to talk about difficult emotions.” If the pilot is successful, MAPS plans to continue with further studies involving more subjects and different approaches. For now, researchers hope to establish basic safety and effectiveness, he said.
The trial is part of a larger $20 million plan to make MDMA an FDA-approved prescription medicine by 2021, Burge said. MAPS is the only organization in the world funding MDMA-assisted psychotherapy trials, he added. The institute has carried out successful pilot studies of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for post-traumatic stress disorder, adding to the drug’s scientific credibility, he said. Other research by the institute includes ayahuasca-assisted therapy for drug addiction, LSD for cluster headaches and psilocybin for nicotine addiction.
Researchers hope to back up growing evidence that psychedelics have legitimate therapeutic uses — and to counter the narrative that has demonized them as mind-destroying drugs.
“That’s what the really good science shows, despite decades of propaganda and government misinformation,” Burge said. “Just a couple weeks ago, a phenomenal study showed that there are no long-term associations between psychedelic use and mental illnesses.”
That study was published this month in the Journal of Psychopharmacology. In addition, a recent report by Johns Hopkins Medicine, a leading U.S. medical institution combining the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins Hospital, showed that the use of psychedelic drugs — primarily psilocybin and LSD — could reduce psychological distress and suicidal thinking.

Her My Love is Your Love World Tour in 1999 commanded $100+ dollars a ticket and the European portion was the highest grossing tour of that year. Do you think a healthy Whitney with at least her 1998/1999 voice could have sustained that level of interest and have a net worth within Mariah and Madonna's range even without writing credit.

I have learned that Days Of Our Lives, which marked its 50th anniversary this season, has been renewed for next season, which will be the long-running daytime drama’s 51st. The pickup, which I hear may include an option for an additional year, keeps NBC in the daytime soap game as Days is the last remaining afternoon drama on its schedule. The network brass had showed public support for the show, from Sony Pictures Television, with both chairman Bob Greenblatt and president Jennifer Salke recently saying they were “happy” with its performance.
Days of Our Lives celebrated its 50th anniversary anniversary in November with a 20-month ratings high, averaging 2.721 million viewers for the week of Nov. 2-6, its largest audience since the week of Feb. 17-21, 2014 (2.836 million) during the network’s coverage of the Sochi Olympics. Days recently topped that during the week of Jan. 4-8 with a big storyline involving Maggie’s decision whether Brady or Eric would receive the heart of her brain-dead son Daniel. It drew 2.914 million viewers, the show’s largest viewership in two years, since January 2014.
In addition to Days of Our Lives, Sony TV also produces CBS’ daytime drama The Young and the Restless.

So apparently Jemaine Clement tweeted about how funny it is that Roosh V, a 36-year-old pick-up artist who calls himself the "King of Masculinity", was discovered to actually live in his mother's basement. Roosh V writes many incendiary things, but is perhaps most well-known for blogging about raping women (which he now claims was 'satire').
Jemaine's tweets about Roosh, and his (Jemaine's) obvious opposition to the rape and mistreatment of women didn't sit well with the Trump loving Men's Rights Activists. So for days, they have banded together to attack him. They're calling him a f-ggot, cuck, ridiculing him for being raised by a single mom, they're claiming his son was fathered by another man, etc. (see the ONTD link for some examples). Jemaine doesn't come off particularly bothered by it. He actually seems amused considering he keeps retweeting them and making them look like idiots. My question is, what the hell do they think they're accomplishing? Do they believe calling a comedian homophobic slurs because he opposes rape and mistreatment is going to help their cause?

Former White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday that President Barack Obama wants Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic presidential nominee.
"I think the President has signaled, while still remaining neutral, that he supports Secretary Clinton's candidacy and would prefer to see her as the nominee," Carney said in an interview with CNN. "He won't officially embrace her unless and until it's clear she is going to be the nominee." Carney left his job at the White House in 2014 and briefly became a commentator for CNN. He now serves as a senior executive for Amazon.
He said Wednesday that Obama was "maintaining tradition" of not endorsing a candidate until the primary process had ended.
"But I don't think there is any doubt that he wants Hillary to win the nomination and believes she would be the best candidate in the fall and the most effective as President in carrying forward what he has achieved," Carney said.

Jane Sanders came to the defense of her husband, dismissing claims that he is too old to run for president.

The oldest president ever elected was Ronald Reagan, who was 69 when sworn into office.
She said her husband is very energetic despite his age.
“Well seriously, he puts everybody to shame in terms of his endurance,” she said. “He is going everyday, you know, 15, 16, 20 hours a day, depending on the day. The rest of us take a day off every now and then, Bernie doesn’t.”
“I think it might have to do with him being a runner when he was a kid,” she added. “He’s as healthy as they come.”

Purple Rain by Prince & the Revolution
None of them won the award.
No, the fifth nominee (and eventual winner) was Can't Slow Down by Lionel Richie, an album few revere (or even remember) to this day. In fact, the only memorable thing from the entire venture was the ludicrous video for the song "Hello" and the clay bust of Richie sculpted by the "blind" student.

My parents have lived in the same house for almost 40 years. Dad didn't believe in spending money on updates or repairs until he absolutely had to. Needless to say the house is in need of massive renovations.
Several contractors have been through the house and the estimates range from $88k to $95k which my parents don't have and can only afford if they mortgage the house. Add to that the neighborhood isn't what it was and has really deteriorated over the decades with a lot of trashy people moving in.
At this point I'm thinking it's time to sell and rent. Buying a condo makes no sense as taxes and fees could be anywhere from $500 to $650 a month, but renting would be just as much of a waste of money, but they wouldn't be responsible for repairs or assessments.
My concern about a condo are the strict rules and a rental brings it's own risks with rules and threats of eviction and never feeling like you own the place.
My brother in law said to mortgage the house get the renos then get a reverse mortgage that way my parents will have a renovated home but without any mortgage payments but that sounds ridiculous.

Pinky was slated to be Fonzie's long-term girlfriend after her initial appearances in episodes #64–66; commercials for the next season even began promoting Kelly's new character. When discord occurred among Kelly, the cast and producers, her character was dropped; she was only mentioned briefly in two later episodes."

"... Bill Clinton made the economy his top priority and argued persuasively that conservatives were using race to divide the nation and divert attention from the failed economy. In practice, however, he capitulated entirely to the right-wing backlash against the civil-rights movement and embraced former president Ronald Reagan’s agenda on race, crime, welfare, and taxes—ultimately doing more harm to black communities than Reagan ever did."
"...We should have seen it coming. Back then, Clinton was the standard-bearer for the New Democrats, a group that firmly believed the only way to win back the millions of white voters in the South who had defected to the Republican Party was to adopt the right-wing narrative that black communities ought to be disciplined with harsh punishment rather than coddled with welfare. Reagan had won the presidency by dog-whistling to poor and working-class whites with coded racial appeals: railing against “welfare queens” and criminal “predators” and condemning “big government.” Clinton aimed to win them back, vowing that he would never permit any Republican to be perceived as tougher on crime than he."
" Just weeks before the critical New Hampshire primary, Clinton proved his toughness by flying back to Arkansas to oversee the execution of Ricky Ray Rector, a mentally impaired black man who had so little conception of what was about to happen to him that he asked for the dessert from his last meal to be saved for him for later."
" Bill Clinton presided over the largest increase in federal and state prison inmates of any president in American history."
"When Clinton left office in 2001, the United States had the highest rate of incarceration in the world."
" Some might argue that it’s unfair to judge Hillary Clinton for the policies her husband championed years ago. But Hillary wasn’t picking out china while she was first lady. (...) In her support for the 1994 crime bill, for example, she used racially coded rhetoric to cast black children as animals. “They are not just gangs of kids anymore,” she said. “They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators.’ No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.”"
" An oft-repeated myth about the Clinton administration is that although it was overly tough on crime back in the 1990s, at least its policies were good for the economy and for black unemployment rates. (...) As unemployment rates sank to historically low levels for white Americans in the 1990s, the jobless rate among black men in their 20s who didn’t have a college degree rose to its highest level ever. This increase in joblessness was propelled by the skyrocketing incarceration rate."
" When Clinton left office in 2001, the true jobless rate for young, non-college-educated black men (including those behind bars) was 42 percent. This figure was never reported. Instead, the media claimed that unemployment rates for African Americans had fallen to record lows (...)"
" Despite claims that radical changes in crime and welfare policy were driven by a desire to end big government and save taxpayer dollars, the reality is that the Clinton administration didn’t reduce the amount of money devoted to the management of the urban poor; it changed what the funds would be used for. Billions of dollars were slashed from public-housing and child-welfare budgets and transferred to the mass-incarceration machine. By 1996, the penal budget was twice the amount that had been allocated to food stamps. During Clinton’s tenure, funding for public housing was slashed by $17 billion (a reduction of 61 percent), while funding for corrections was boosted by $19 billion (an increase of 171 percent), according to sociologist Loïc Wacquant “effectively making the construction of prisons the nation’s main housing program for the urban poor.”"

It’s his first interview since being released from jail on parole, and he assures it will be his last.
Talking to KTRK-TV, convicted killer Jon Buice insists his 1991 murder of Paul Broussard, a Houston Banker, was not a hate crime at all.
Broussard was beaten to death and stabbed in the streets of Montrose; a crime that’s become one of America’s most notorious antigay attacks.
“This was not a hate crime,” Buice says. “It was a bunch of teens high and drunk in a pack mentality… [The crime] was mislabeled from the start, and once the ball got rolling, it was too hard to pack up.”
Buice served 23 years of the 45-year sentence he got in a plea bargain. He was granted parole in November over the protests of Nancy Rodriguez, the mother of victim Paul Broussard.
Buice was 17 when he and nine other teens and young men drove into the city looking for gays to harass.
They found Broussard, 27, and two friends walking near a gay nightspot, and the two groups got into a fight.
In attempting to flee, Broussard ran into a dead-end alley, where he was surrounded and attacked and fatally stabbed by Buice.
The November parole decision brought protests from within the criminal justice system and the LGBT community.
“The murder of Paul Broussard clearly was a hate crime,” Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said in November. “The decision of this board sends a terrible message in a time when these crimes seem to be flourishing.”
Noel Freeman, former president of the Houston GLBT Political Caucus, called his release a “travesty of justice.”
Broussard’s mother had called for Buice to serve at least 27 years behind bars – one year for every year of her son’s life.
Buice had previously been denied parole at least eight times.
Broussard tells KTRK he’s still traumatized and haunted by the murder.
“There’s not a day I open my eyes and don’t think about what happened July 3, 1991,” he said. He says he’s still full of “regret, guilt and shame.”
“You can’t erase it. If you are involved in taking someone’s life, you carry a burden on your shoulders like a lead weight. The only way to rid yourself of it or accept it as a human being is to admit it and take responsibility for your actions. It’s part of growing into a man.”
“Can a person who’s done something horrible be forgiven by a whole community? I don’t know, we will see. To be known for who I am today would be something good. To be known for what I did at 17, would not be good. I want to show people there is an opportunity for a person to grow into a good human being.”

Bernie Sanders questioned President Barack Obama’s leadership in a new interview, suggesting that he would be able to close a divide between Americans and government that the Obama administration has left open throughout his presidency.
It’s the latest salvo from Sanders, who has — intentionally or unintentionally — been engaging in an escalating war of words with the man who eight years ago was building his own political revolution.
“There’s a huge gap right now between Congress and the American people,” Sanders said Wednesday in an interview with MSNBC that will air Thursday evening on “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.” “What presidential leadership is about [is] closing that gap.”
Sanders acknowledged that Obama has tried to bridge the divide but said he hasn’t succeeded. “But I think what we need, when I talk about a political revolution, is bringing millions and millions of people into the political process in a way that does not exist right now,” he said.
Such a political revolution would be necessary to carry out his agenda, Sanders said, which includes free college and a single-payer health care system.
Hillary Clinton, who has recently been more openly embracing Obama and his legacy, pounced on Sanders’ comments. She fired off a tweet that served as a double whammy by invoking Marco Rubio’s robotically repeated line from last Saturday’s GOP debate. “Let's dispel with this fiction that @POTUS doesn't know what he's doing. He knows exactly what he's doing,” she said, including a link to the MSNBC interview.
Obama has increasingly found himself caught in the crossfire between Sanders and Clinton, and at times has injected himself, usually to the detriment of Sanders.
During an interview with POLITICO last month, Obama quickly shot down the notion that Sanders, with his grass-roots revolution, reminded him of himself in 2008. “I don’t think that's true,” he said. And he made clear during that conversation that he views Clinton, not Sanders, as the candidate best suited to take the baton from him.
Sanders, in the interview with MSNBC, said Obama and Vice President Joe Biden should stay out of the Democratic primary and let the process play out. “Well, I hope and expect that the president will allow the American people to make the decision as to who the Democratic nominee will be,” he said. “What the president has indicated, what Vice President Biden has indicated publicly, is that they are going to play a neutral role in the process, which is what they should be playing.”
The Vermont senator and Obama have generally maintained a cool but not unfriendly relationship. Sanders had a one-on-one meeting with Obama in the Oval Office just five days before the Iowa caucuses, and both sides said it was a good encounter.
Tad Devine, a top aide to Sanders, told POLITICO on Thursday that the Vermont senator has been “very supportive” of the president. He said Sanders is also sympathetic about the challenges he faced when he entered the White House, including a dismal economy and two wars he inherited.
“He thinks the president has done a great job given the circumstances that he and the vice president came into. And we're not trying to signal anything other than how Bernie would lead the nation if he was president,” Devine said.

A Black Lives Matter activist killed himself on the steps of the Ohio Statehouse, authorities said.
MarShawn McCarrel's family said his emotionally draining work may well have taken a toll on him.
“My demons won today. I'm sorry,” the activist, who recently attended the NAACP Image Awards, posted on his Facebook page about 3 p.m., just hours before his body was found near the Statehouse.
His last tweet read: “Let the record show that I pissed on the state house before I left.”
No one witnessed the shooting, Cvetan said. McCarrel was pronounced dead at the scene.
McCarrel, who had recently worked with Black Lives Matter, helped organize protests in Ohio after a Missouri cop shot and killed unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in 2014.
He also founded youth mentorship program Pursuing Our Dreams, which launched Feed the Streets, a project to help Ohio's homeless.
The 23-year-old community organizer was named one of Radio One’s Hometown Champions, an award for community activists and volunteers, earlier this year and earned a trip to the California awards show.

Dec. 8, 2015
Last week, Stoya accused James Deen of rape. Deen denies it. I believe Stoya.
How much can you change the world with 55 words?
On the 28th of November, in two tweets, Stoya—who is in no particular order a famous porn actress, an activist, a writer and a friend of mine—unambiguously accused her ex-boyfriend, fellow porn actor James Deen, of rape. “James Deen held me down and f–ked me while I said no, stop, used my safeword,” she wrote. “I just can’t nod and smile when people bring him up anymore.”
Within days, the porn industry had turned against its golden boy. In so doing, it became the first professional community to respond to allegations of serial sexual violence by actually believing women from the start.
What was astonishing was not the courage it doubtless took for Stoya to type those 55 words and hit send — knowing that she would be accused of lying and attention-seeking, knowing the number of people who would claim that as a sex worker, she cannot expect to claim rape and be believed. What was astonishing, though, what had my heart between my teeth, was the number of people who did the opposite. Even before more former partners and colleagues of Deen came forward with more accusations of rape and violence, major porn studios dropped him as a performer, and many outlets publishing his work and writing cut ties. The hashtag #solidaritywithsoya trended around the world.
Watching the story unfold, I found these lines from Lidia Yuknavitch’s The Small Backs of Children echoing in my mind: “Nations will shift like stones in the hands of a girl making a city in the dirt, and men and women… either they will finally see each other and do what must be done to evolve, or they will not.”
Something is changing. The response to Stoya and the other accusers is the crest on a tidal wave of women’s truth washing away the detritus of lies about sex and violence, about which lives matter and who is to be believed. In Hollywood, in the music industry, in politics, in every corridor, women and girls are coming forward and coming together to stand against a culture of abuse that has valued the reputation of powerful men above the dignity and voice of women. It’s Bill Cosby. It’s Jimmy Saville. It’s Terry Richardson. It’s the Steubenville High School football team. It’s all of their accusers, whose names we have been told do not matter. Until now.
That’s what solidarity is.
The default response to accusations of rape, especially against powerful men, has long been to assume that the accusers are lying. That’s what women do, of course — that’s the nature of the sex. They are malicious and vengeful and they refuse to accept that men simply have more sexual power than they do, because nature made them that way, or because God wants it that way, depending on your point of view.
The thing about rape is that it is extremely hard to prove. By its very nature, there are usually no outside witnesses. Even when victims steel their courage, overcome and go directly to the police without taking a shower, they can count on not being believed.
Part of the reason that rape is hard to prove is that sexist fairytales about what constitutes consent infect judges and juries just as much as the general public. Of the many myths about sexual violence, the most pernicious is that women routinely lie about it. That’s not true; the rates of false reporting for rape and sexual assault are estimated to be around the same as rates of false reporting for any other crime – the current figure is anywhere between 0.2% and 8%. Men are actually more likely to be victims of rape themselves than they are to be falsely accused of it.

There’s a canyon at the end of a dusty lane off the I-5 freeway, down some lonely roads built to access landfills and water treatment plants, where Greater Los Angeles ends and America begins. Here, through some iron gates and down a hill lined with hedges, is a portal to a land of pickups and full-brimmed caps, where old men wearing tan vests stuffed with ammunition openly carry shotguns, where not one but two giant stuffed grizzly bears greet visitors in a dark lobby, and where the sounds of live fire echo off the sandstone walls. This would be a terrible place to steal a car stereo. Or wear a Bernie Sanders shirt. And into this scene arrives a man in a black luxury station wagon, wearing very stylish jeans, a snug green Henley, and a 49ers cap that is well cared for.
“Aren’t you on TV?” asks a clerk inside the pro shop of the Oak Tree Gun Club, in Newhall, CA, from behind a counter where visitors can purchase or rent various firearms. Matt Bomer nods and smiles. “I am,” he says. Celebrity sightings do not seem to be a regular occurrence at Oak Tree; unlike basically everywhere else in Greater Los Angeles, there’s no wall of fame of signed head shots, at least that I can see.
“I hate to ask you this,” the clerk replies, “but my wife and I love your show, and she would kill me if I don’t get a picture.” He gives his phone to a colleague, hunches in close to the star of the megahit American Horror Story: Hotel—as well as the films Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL—and then gives us a very quick instructional on safe handling of a .22 Ruger pistol, which Bomer selected by name from a wall of handguns. “It’s the assassin’s choice,” he tells me. “You’ll see why when you fire it.”
Game Changers 2015: Matt Bomer >>>
Bomer, it turns out, has some experience with firearms. “I’ve been handling guns since I was a kid,” he says, out on the trap range a little later, popping a shell into a 12-gauge Dickinson shotgun. “I got a .30-30 for Christmas in the seventh grade. It wasn’t what I asked for, by the way. And it wasn’t my only present.” It was a gift from his father, a conservative Christian and avid hunter who “clears the decks for deer season.”
Bomer was born outside St. Louis but spent his formative years in Texas. He reckons he was “somewhere around 8” when his father first introduced him to guns. As a kid, he hunted birds and ducks but hasn’t shot at anything live in years. “It’s nothing that I’ve elected to do in my adult life,” he says. “In Texas, it’s a way for men to bond together. I was down with that when I lived there, and I haven’t really done it since.”
He’s not sure when he first handled a firearm on a set. It could have been on Guiding Light, the soap he starred on for a little more than a year in the early 2000s. “I know I killed several people on that show,” he says, but decides that most, if not all, of those murders occurred offscreen. Probably, then, it was the 2006 film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, in which he is murdered by Leatherface in extravagant style—“He strung me up for a while, and then he knocked me out and carried me to the basement, strapped me up, partially skinned me alive, then gutted me with a chain saw.” This gratuitous death wasn’t without purpose. “Leatherface becomes Leatherface with my face.”
Michael B. Jordan: American Adonis >>>
Bomer aims the gun over the top of the wooden trap and yells, “Pull!” causing a neon-yellow clay target to shoot across the range. He fires. It shatters. For someone who hasn’t shot at a bird, real or fake, in eons, he’s pretty good, hitting four out of five clays in his first round. “City boys out in the country!” he hollers. When one shot of mine barely nicks a target, he gives me encouragement. “If you hit it at all, you’ve killed the bird.” Bomer takes the gun and pats me on the back. “If that were the case, we’d be going home with some dinner.”
When the ammo is exhausted, we go in search of lunch, but in Oak Tree’s café, the air is heavy with fryer oil. I suggest we try elsewhere.

Indonesia wants social networking sites to remove any emojis representing same-sex couples, it's reported.
One popular messaging app, Line, has already dropped all LGBT-themed emojis, after saying it had received complaints from users. Now the Indonesian government is asking major players like Facebook and WhatsApp to follow suit and remove the icons for users within the country, the pro-government Republika newspaper reports. "No social media may show items that smack of LGBT. Because we have our own rules, like religious values and norms, which they must respect," information ministry spokesman Ismail Cawidu is quoted as saying.
Homosexuality is legal in Indonesia, but prevailing conservative attitudes in the Muslim-majority country make open discussion of sexuality controversial. Mr Cawidu did not specify what would happen if companies refused to remove the emojis.
But one human rights group says any such censorship will promote intolerance. "It brings to the public the message that LGBT is something which must be opposed, and then the public, through various organisations, will enact such opposition, says Ismail Hasani, research director at the Setara Institute. "Public opinion in our country is predominantly anti-LGBT, but it is deplorable that the government follows this opinion."
In January, Indonesia's higher education minister, Muhammad Nasir, said gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people should be barred from university campuses if they engage in "public displays of affection".

(Reuters) - The leader of an armed occupation at a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon and others were arrested on Tuesday after shots were fired during a traffic stop, leaving one person dead and another wounded, the FBI said.
Protesters were still occupying the remote Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Oregon after leader Ammon Bundy's arrest and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was setting up a perimeter with the hopes of a peaceful resolution, a law enforcement official told Reuters.
A total of eight people were arrested in two states.
The takeover at Malheur that started Jan. 2 is the latest flare-up in the so-called Sagebrush Rebellion, a decades-old conflict over the U.S. government's control of millions acres of land in the West.
Several media outlets, including the Oregonian and CNN, reported that law enforcement sources said LaVoy Finicum was killed. Finicum, a rancher who acted as a spokesman for the occupiers, told NBC News earlier this month that he would rather die than be arrested.
"There are things more important than your life, and freedom is one of them," he said in the NBC interview.
Bundy and four leaders of the occupation were taken into custody following the confrontation along Highway 395 in northeast Oregon around 4:25 p.m. local time (0025 GMT), according to the FBI.
A sixth individual was arrested by the Oregon State Police in Burns, Oregon, about 1.5 hours later. The FBI said a seventh person was later arrested, 50-year-old Peter Santilli, an independent journalist who livestreamed events at the refuge.
The FBI said they also arrested an eighth person in Peoria, Arizona, in relation to the occupation.
All of those arrested face federal charges of conspiracy to use force, intimidation or threats to impede federal officers from discharging their duties, the FBI said.
The Oregonian reported that Bundy had been en route to a community meeting in John Day, Oregon, with several other members of the occupation, where he was scheduled to be a guest speaker, when authorities stopped his vehicle.
The newspaper said 43-year-old Ryan Bundy, Ammon's brother, was injured in the arrest, suffering a minor gunshot wound. Authorities did not release the identity of the person killed, but added that he was the subject of a federal probable cause arrest.
Some 25 miles (40 km) of Highway 395 was shut down in both directions following the incident, a dispatcher for the state department of transportation said. The highway was expected to remain closed as authorities investigate the shooting.
The occupiers of the wildlife refuge said they were supporting two local ranchers who were returned to prison this month for setting fires that spread to federal land. The ranchers' lawyer has said the occupiers do not speak for the family.
Burns Mayor Craig LaFollette told Reuters that while he had limited information about the night's events, he hoped the stand-off would come to a peaceful end.
"I think my perception is that people's patience was running thin and that the community as a whole was looking for some resolution and to have these people leave," he said.
Law enforcement officials had largely kept their distance from the buildings at the refuge, 30 miles (48 km) south of the small town of Burns in rural southeast Oregon's Harney County, in the hope of avoiding a violent confrontation.
Local residents have expressed a mixture of sympathy for the Hammond family, suspicion of the federal government's motives and frustration with the occupation.

That creepy old gay man that looks like Santa Claus and the people of his generation are literally – literally! – the only reason that you can walk down the street in your pink fucking tank top, holding your boyfriend’s hand and not get your ass beat.”
Davey adds, “Every aspect of your stuck-up cocky gay world was built on the sacrifices that that man made. And yes, maybe he is old. But guess what? He cannot help his age. You on the other hand can help your attitude. So shut up and show some fucking respect.”

An anti-Beyoncé protest rally has been scheduled outside the NFL's New York headquarters after former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and others said that her new song and Super Bowl halftime performance attacked police officers.
"Are you offended as an American that Beyoncé pulled her race-baiting stunt at the Superbowl? Do you agree that it was a slap in the face to law enforcement?" asks the rally's Eventbrite page.
The page, which says the protest will happen Feb. 16 at 8 a.m., listed the hashtags #BoycottBeyonce, #BlueLivesMatter, and #AllLivesMatter.
Beyoncé's new song, "Formation," was released a day ahead of the Super Bowl, and the music video and halftime performance included politically charged imagery alluding to the Black Panthers, the Black Lives Matter movement, Malcolm X, and Hurricane Katrina.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was offended by the imagery, particularly what he saw as a glorification of the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter movement, which have been called anti-police by many.
"This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive," he said, according to the New York Daily News.
The organizer of the protest rally at the NFL's headquarters focused on the Black Panthers, and posted a mugshot of Herman Bell, a former Black Liberation Army member convicted of murdering two police officers.
"Do you agree that the Black Panthers was/is a hate group which should not be glorified? Come and let's stand together. Let's tell the NFL we don't want hate speech & racism at the Superbowl ever again!" the event page read.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass., Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Former New England Patriots tight end – turned murderer Aaron Hernandez still has love for quarterback Tom Brady, and also a lot of remaining aggression.
In a prison letter attained by TMZ Sports, Hernandez tells his pen pal that she needs to commit suicide, while simultaneously speaking of his adoration for former teammates.
"Tie a cinderblock to your ankles and jump in a deep body of water," Hernandez writes in the letter. "Buy the most powerful firecracker in the world that's possible to buy, tie it to your face with duct tape, light it and wait for your head to explode."
Hernandez goes on to explain how he watches the Patriots games from his cell at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in the Dec. 10 letter.
"I have a TV in my cell! And yes I still root for my squad and still love all the ones I loved," Hernandez writes.
"The closest I was with was probably Brady and whom I love to death and always will and only hope the best for them. But was cool with Julez, Branch (I [expletive] with and got mad love for) and 'the BEST TE ever to walk on a football field' Gronk!"
Hernandez also rips into Patriots owner Robert Kraft, whom he claims is "fake" and "non loyal."
Hernandez, 26, is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd. He currently awaits a trial date for a second murder.

CNN talks to more than 150 people in 31 cities to explore what's driving the Trump phenomenon
A) There's widespread anger that too many immigrants are simply "getting away" with not playing by the rules at the expense of hard-working white Americans. Why do some people not pay taxes? Not have jobs? Come into the country illegally?
B) There is a very palpable anger at President Obama. Many Trump supporters say he can't be trusted, he cares more about the welfare of black people than whites and he's inflamed racial divisions in the country. Others say they're convinced that he's Muslim.
C) Energizing the Trump movement are voters who call themselves the "silent majority." These individuals feel strongly that white people, too, face discrimination in this country, and that they are often wrongly accused of being racist. This is stirring anger at the Black Lives Movement.
D) Many Americans are deeply frightened by the recent spate of terrorist attacks around the world and wonder whether Obama is doing enough to keep the country safe. Trump's explosive proposals to increase surveillance of mosques, keep a database of Muslim-Americans and enforce a temporary "ban" on Muslims entering the country have energized his supporters.
E) Trump has mesmerized voters. People say they have never seen a presidential candidate like Trump: He's unfiltered; he's anti-establishment; he exudes confidence and strength; he's not a politician.

Dubbed the “Iranian Schindler”, Islamic diplomat, Abdol Hossein Sardari, saved thousands of Jews from the Nazi regime by confusing the fascist group with their own propaganda.
When the Nazis began implementing anti-Jewish laws in occupied France, Mr Sardari, head of the Iranian Consulate in Paris, used the Nazis’ own racial purity laws to convince the group Iranian Jews were actually Aryan and not subject to the Reich’s racial laws.
Issuing Iranian passports to occupied Jews, without the consent of his superiors, Mr Sardari helped 2,000 Jews escape the Nazi regime.
Mr Sardari is just one of many people who feature in a new campaign honouring Muslims who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.
Organised by I Am Your Protector (IAYP) - who describe themselves as “a community of people who speak up and stand up for each other across religion, race, gender and beliefs” – the group is attempting to highlight the, often forgotten, stories of Muslims who helped Jews during one of history’s deadliest genocides.
Also commemorated is British Muslim war heroine Noor Inayat Khan. Ms Khan, served as a wireless operator during World War II and was recruited to spy for the Allied forces in Nazi-occupied France. Until her arrest she provided critical support to the resistance movement and was executed at the Dachau Concentration Camp.

Someone that I know works over at the set of a certain long-running television show. Well, not everything on set is running so smoothly these days. The lead actress, who is publicly portrayed as being friendly and fun to work with, is, in all reality nothing short of a colossal bitch, a control freak, and a touch on the paranoid side.
Paranoid, in part because of her advancing age, and her dislike of actresses on set who are younger and prettier than her. She gets upset if attention is paid to the younger actress, and makes sure that it is well known when she enters a room, and basically demands that she be the center of attention. In fact, there is a rumor running through the staff whether or not one young actress will even return next season.
This aging actress in question is a control freak. She is involved in the show on many different levels; acting, directing, producing, and has demanded that her character essentially be the shows "main" character, much to the determent of the shows quality. The last few years have gotten out of hand, with ridiculous plots and character arcs. The writers and the show's showrunner bend to her demands, and rarely try to reel her in anymore.
In addition, she insists on portraying the set as a "fun" and "family-orientated" place, when in all reality, it is anything but. Other cast members are NOT allowed to say differently, and they must kowtow to many of her demands, one of which is posing for cast selfies, (including guest stars), which are then uploaded to various social media sites to prove that the cast is one, big, happy family. Cast members follow suit and publicly rave about what a "wonderful" person she is and how grateful they are to be able to work with her. They are really only grateful for the job, and that is the truth. They tow the line in order to keep their job. The biggest laugh on set recently was when an actor, who has won and been nominated for many awards, said that he "learned" a lot from working with her. Yeah, he learned alright. He learned what a bitch she is. Even when cast members depart the show, they are not allowed to speak negatively of their experience. This person is such a narcissist, that she actually believes that these people are her friends, when in fact, most people that work with her consider her to be quite the tyrant.

She has EIGHT films coming out this year, beating Jessica Chastain's seven back in 2011. But Chastain's sudden surge was a matter of timing, with the films being shot in a span of four years. This Vikander girl seemingly got all the prestige projects overnight and shot them within like a year.
Another thing is that we know Chastain owes her career to Pacino, but at least things happened organically in her case. He cast her in his passion project and let her perform with him in front of all his Hollywood friends, and got her cast in Terrence Malick's pet project, which then opened all kinds of doors for her. Vikander, on the other hand, doesn't appear to have such powerful pushing hands that we are aware of. So who or what is really behind her Hollywood career? Any inside scoop?

As part of Hulu’s Triumph’s Election Special 2016, Triumph the Insult Dog visited the University of New Hampshire to quiz a group of students from the liberal arts school about microaggressions and political correctness.
Triumph chose the school after it issued a “bias-free language guide” which told students to avoid words like “American,” “homosexual,” “illegal alien,” and “Caucasian,” declaring those terms “problematic.”
Needless to say, the irascible puppet was veeeeery problematic. “What do you identify as, besides pretentious?” he asked one male student. After a female student explained what a “trigger warning” was, he began to speak about her in a very sexual manner, clearly angering her.
One female student was quizzed on what “mansplaining” meant. But after she was done explaining, Triumph went to a male student, saying he could probably explain it better.

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Maybe it was just the end of a long, tiring day of campaigning. Or maybe Senator Marco Rubio’s opponents have gotten into his head.
But on Monday, Mr. Rubio, the Florida Republican, who has been under relentless criticism for uttering his talking points over and over in Saturday’s presidential debate, had another repetitious lapse.
Speaking to a crowd in Nashua, he was lamenting the decline in American family values.
Then he lamented the decline in American values again.
This what he said verbatim, as his wife and four children looked on:
[quote] “We are taking our message to families that are struggling to raise their children in the 21st century because, as you saw, Jeanette and I are raising our four children in the 21st century, and we know how hard it’s become to instill our values in our kids instead of the values they try to ram down our throats.
[quote] “In the 21st century, it’s becoming harder than ever to instill in your children the values they teach in our homes and in our church instead of the values that they try to ram down our throats in the movies, in music, in popular culture.”
Mr. Rubio appeared to notice his own echo: As he repeated the word “throats,” he caught himself, but proceeded to the end of his sentence nonetheless.

Marco Rubio apparently didn’t realize how badly he’d bombed Saturday’s debate until he saw all the mean tweets about his performance on Twitter.
The anecdote was dropped in an article in today’s New York Times examining how Rubio’s robotic repetition of a talking point about Barack Obama tanked his campaign. Rubio knew he hadn’t done particularly well, but it wasn’t until he went on Twitter that he understood how bad the damage was.
[quote] The episode was such a shock that not even Mr. Rubio seemed to understand the gravity of the situation as he left the stage at St. Anselm College just after 10 on Saturday night. His wife and four children rushed to greet him in a private back room, followed by somber-faced aides, who delivered their candid assessment.
[quote] It was not, Mr. Rubio conceded to them, his best performance. But only after the senator scrolled through Twitter — flooded with brutal, mocking reviews — did he fully grasp the damage he had done to his own campaign.
According to the Times, Rubio’s campaign had believed he’d be better off attacking Obama than fighting with his fellow candidates, a strategy that appeared to be working up until the disastrous debate Saturday. Rubio did not comment on the article but let’s dispel with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing.

I have been taking English in since my public school days, but they didn't teach us the language effectively. It was only one class for an hour every other day, and I never really became efficient.
Now I am taking English at a postsecondary level, and while my reading and comprehension is good and I can speak it fairly well I cannot make sense of many grammar and spelling issues. I recently turned a paper which had some grammar errors. As hard as I try there are some things that I just cannot seem to get right. For example, on the use of "threw" and "through." Why are so many words in English like this? Very confusing. Do people just memorize which is the correct word to use, or do you have to concentrate when writing them? I had the same issue with "they're" or "their." My instructor has tried to point out the differences but I still struggle. For anyone reading this who speaks English natively, are these words just natural to you when having to spell them out? It seems that everyone in my class has the same problem.

[quote] Cosplay (コスプレ kosupure?), a contraction of the words costume play, is a performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture and a broader use of the term "cosplay" applies to any costumed role-playing in venues apart from the stage. Any entity that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject and it is not unusual to see genders switched. Favorite sources include manga and anime, comic books and cartoons, video games, and live-action films and television series.

Millennials get a lot of abuse here, but there are two areas where they led the way. The first was in gay acceptance. Millennials in the late 1990s once AIDS stopped being a death sentence, suddenly opened a huge gap with older generations in accepting gays. The differences in age cohorts were astonishing, and it took just ten years for it to seep into the general culture.
The second is socialism. Since 2000, millennials have come to accept socialism as a better system than capitalism. That hasn't been reflected in the general culture, but in ten years' time, America is going to have the biggest political revolution since the Confederacy, dwarfing the New Deal. They may not know shit and they may not rank very high on the workplace totem pole, but they see something clearly their addled elders with their minds blanked by idiot biases and Cold War propaganda cannot: the economic, political, and military system we have now is destroying itself.

A federal judge on Tuesday ruled that Kentucky clerk Kim Davis followed orders to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and that licenses altered to remove Davis' name are likely valid.
U.S. District Judge David Bunning -- the same judge who initially ordered Davis to jail for a few days in September -- found that Davis has fulfilled the court's orders not to interfere with her deputies granting marriage licenses to gay couples, according to ABC News.
After Davis left jail last year, she removed her name from marriage licenses, and Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) in December issued an executive order removing all county clerks' names from marriage licenses.
Bunning wrote that "there is every reason to believe that any altered licenses ... would be recognized under Kentucky law," according to ABC News.
In a lawsuit filed against Davis, the American Civil Liberties Union argued that she had not followed the judge's orders not to interfere with the process of issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, according to Reuters.
ACLU lawyer Ria Mar told Reuters that Bunning's ruling could not be appealed and that state courts have to decide whether the new licenses are valid.
"The bottom line is that all loving couples in Rowan County can now receive marriage licenses, and we'll continue to fight to ensure that remains the case," Mar said.

Years ago, I was with a group of friends at the beach. It one of the guy's birthday, so I said to his best friend: "I need to go and get a bottle of champagne to celebrate Jim's birthday tonight."
He responded: "No, don't do that. Jim doesn't like to celebrate his birthday. It will embarrass him if you draw attention to it." They had grown up together, so I assumed he knew what he was talking about.
That night at dinner, the friend who had advised me not to get the champagne, presented Jim with a bottle of champagne, a card, and a gift. And made a big fuss. Later that night, I went into Jim's room to talk to him and he was crying and said, "You didn't need to make a big fuss, but you could have a least gotten a card." I felt like such a shit. And I realize I had been set up by his very competitive best friend to look bad. And I didn't want to compound Jim's unhappiness by letting him know what a devious person his best friend is.
Years later, when Jim died, I got a call from the best friend: "Jim's dying wish is that everyone wear white or other light colors to the funeral. That is what was done on his favorite TV show and it meant a lot to him." I wore a light blazer and was greeted at the door by the best friend in a dark grey three-piece suit. When I walked in, I realized that I had been the only one told to dress in light colors. Again, set up to look bad.
I am not friends with that person anymore, for obvious reasons. But it is still a bit shocking that anyone would be that malicious and devious. I know he will be a hero to some of you!

Trump is a coward. Rather than take a position on an issue, like Ted Cruz's citizenship, he says "People are talking about it. I don't know about it, but people are talking about it."
He often phrases issues like that. He raises subjects by saying that OTHERS are interested in them, and therefore they need to be discussed. It's a trick that Fox uses as well, and they're known for dishonest reporting. After they've created a buzz in this manner, and news organizations are reporting on the subject, only then they address the subject directly. It's cowardly. If Trump wants to comment on an issue, he should just do so.

I'd never heard of him until a couple of days ago. I did find a short DL thread about him from 2011 but not much info in it.
In the interview portion of the scene below, he says he's 20 and a prostitute. His mother, who's 37, is also a whore back in Ohio and they share stories about hooking. He said he was first fucked up the ass "at a very young age" (apparently age 6 from other statements he's made) and then not again until age 13.
He acknowledged he'd had an incestuous relationship but laughed off the uncle question. He went on to say he found guys online to drink their piss (sex not required) and his big fantasy was to have a guy piss up his ass.
The sex that followed this remarkable conversation was relatively tame by comparison: Jake only got slapped in the face and spat upon.
Wow, what a mess. Just listening to him talk, you could see he was a disaster waiting to happen. This was in 2011. By 2012, he'd completely flipped out according to The Sword website.

A pissed-off passenger who was not allowed to smoke or drink alcohol aboard a Paris-bound plane took out his frustrations on a fellow flier by urinating on him.
The mile-high waterworks forced the Air Meditarranee flight from Algiers to divert to Lyon when flight attendants pinned the shirtless goon after a free-for-all, the MailOnline reported.
Another man involved in the melee also was removed from the Airbus A321 at Lyon, where the charter flight was delayed for about three hours.
The airline, based in Toulouse, uses Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris as its hub for domestic flights and international routes to the Canary Islands, Greece and Lebanon, among other destinations.
The pee-brain isn’t the first flier to relieve himself outside of an airplane bathroom.
In September, a man was arrested at Portland International Airport in Oregon after he allegedly urinated on fellow passengers on a JetBlue flight from Alaska.
The 27-year-old man, who had been sleeping for most of the flight, stood up and began peeing through the space between the seats in front of him.
In 2011, French actor Gerard Depardieu was ejected from a CityJet flight from Paris to Dublin after he wet the aisle while the plane was taxiing to a runway.
He fumed that he needed to use the toilet, but was told he would have to wait until the plane was airborne.

Paging The Voice of the Night...
CBS is boldly handing control of its new Star Trek series to the person best suited for the job: Bryan Fuller.
The acclaimed auteur, who launched his career writing for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, will serve as co-creator and showrunner of the Eye Net’s forthcoming reboot.
As previously announced, the new series will launch on CBS in early 2017, with all subsequent episodes then being available exclusively on CBS All Access, the network’s on demand and live streaming service.
“My very first experience of Star Trek is my oldest brother turning off all the lights in the house and flying his model of a D7 Class Klingon Battle Cruiser through the darkened halls,” said Fuller in a statement. “Before seeing a frame of the television series, the Star Trek universe lit my imagination on fire. It is without exaggeration a dream come true to be crafting a brand-new iteration of Star Trek with fellow franchise alum Alex Kurtzman and boldly going where no Star Trek series has gone before.”
“Bringing Star Trek back to television means returning it to its roots, and for years those roots flourished under Bryan’s devoted care,” said executive producer Alex Kurtzman. “His encyclopedic knowledge of Trek canon is surpassed only by his love for Gene Roddenberry’s optimistic future, a vision that continues to guide us as we explore strange new worlds.”
Fuller’s non-Trek TV credits include Pushing Daisies and, most recently, Hannibal.

Jodie Foster has a new girlfriend.
The Oscar-winner has been quietly dating photographer Alexandra Hedison, according to sources.
Name sound familiar?
Well, Hedison used to date Ellen DeGeneres until the talk show queen left her for Portia de Rossi.
"It's pretty serious," a source says of Foster and Hedison. "They're totally in love."
Internet chatter about the two began in the summer when the two were photographed together at a technology seminar at Fox Studios in Los Angeles and out to dinner with friends a few days later. Both were at the opening of Alan Cumming's Macbeth in NYC back in April, but they weren't photographed together.

UK soap Hollyoaks premiered 20 years ago, growing into a television touchstone with a revolving cast and sometimes hysterically overwrought melodrama. One thing the show has not skimped on (especially over the last decade) is gay representation, with same-sex romance and hot button issues (gay domestic violence, homophobia) a large part of the landscape.

Bernie Sanders may have crushed Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire popular vote, but thanks to superdelegates, Clinton will leave New Hampshire with the same number of delegates as Sanders.
Bernie Sanders may have crushed Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire popular vote, but thanks to superdelegates, Clinton will leave New Hampshire with the same number of delegates as Sanders. The Hill reported:
Sanders had won 13 delegates with his 20-point victory on Tuesday and is expected to raise that total to 15 by the time all of the votes are counted.
Two of the state’s 24 delegates are currently unpledged but will likely be awarded to Sanders once the results are finalized.
Clinton won nine delegates in the primary but came into the contest with the support of six superdelegates, who are state party insiders given the freedom to support any candidate they choose.
Superdelegate support is fluid, though, so some of those delegates now backing Clinton could switch to Sanders before the Democratic National Convention in late July.
But as it stands, the superdelegate support gives Clinton a total of 15 New Hampshire delegates.
According to the Associated Press’ delegate count, Hillary Clinton leads Bernie Sanders 394-44. Clinton has roughly 360 superdelegates to 8 for Bernie Sanders. Clinton already has 16.5% of the delegates needed to win the nomination.
Contrary to what some progressive groups who are supporting Sen Sanders are suggesting in their emails to supporters, superdelegates aren’t a trick to take the nomination away from Bernie Sanders. Superdelegates have been around since the 1984 election. They represent 20% of the total delegate pool. Clinton’s domination of the superdelegates means that winning the popular vote, or a majority of delegates won’t be enough for Bernie Sanders to win the Democratic nomination.
If Sanders were to win the nomination without winning a large percentage of superdelegates, he would need to defeat Clinton by 60-40 delegate margin in the remaining states. Winning won’t be good enough. Sanders is going to need to win big.
Bernie Sanders won New Hampshire by 22 points and gained nothing on Hillary Clinton in the delegate count.
Even when Hillary Clinton loses, she still manages to find a way to win.

I have been a Nintendo fan for many years and have all the consoles/good games from Super Nintendo through the WII U. I originally got into Nintendo because they were licensed to have Star Wars games - plus Donkey Kong, Mario Cart and Mario World etc.
I've noticed Star Wars have stopped releasing games on the Nintendo platform. Star Wars Battlefront is for everything but Nintendo. Same for the other Star Wars games coming out this year. I also noticed Alien Isolation which looks quite good - also not for Nintendo. So I am going to either buy a PlayStation 4 or an X-Box (not sure which one yet).

Rendering Bernie's win meaningless. Oh, well.
Despite defeating Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by the biggest margin of any Democrat in modern history, Bernie Sanders will get the same number of delegates from the state as the former Secretary of State.
Sanders won 15 delegates in his 22-point win over Clinton on Tuesday while Hillary won nine.
The difference is Clinton already had six delegates heading into the state thanks to the Democratic Party’s superdelegate system.
Superdelegates are state party insiders who can support any candidate they want, regardless of primary outcome.
Six of New Hampshire’s eight superdelegates had already lined up behind Clinton before the state even voted, raising Clinton’s nine delegates to 15.
The other two superdelegates, state party chair Ray Buckley and state Senator Martha Fuller Clark, are still uncommitted.
Hillary’s superdelegates include Governor Maggie Hassan, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Rep. Annie Kuster and DNC members Billy Shaheen, Kathy Sullivan, and Joanne Dodwell.
The superdelegate problem will continue to hamper Sanders all around the country, even if he continues his unlikely torrid pace.
Though superdelegates can change their support, Clinton has already lined up about 360 superdelegates around the country while Sanders has just eight superdelegates.
There are 4,763 total delegates in the Democratic Party.
It takes 2,382 delegates to secure the Democratic nomination.
Fifteen percent of the 4,763 delegates – 712 to be exact – are superdelegates.
In 2008, each super delegate had about as much influence on the race as roughly 10,000 voters.

Justin Bieber's beauty during his early teen years was apparently so potent that it helped him get a music deal, according to the record executive that signed him.
In L.A. Reid's new memoir, Sing To Me, the exec goes in depth about the first time he met Bieber, when Usher brought the singer to the Island Def Jam Records office.
"At four on the dot, Usher walked into my office with this adorable fourteen-year-old boy," Reid wrote. "This kid was beautiful, like a woman can be beautiful and men rarely are, and he turned it on as soon as he stepped into the room."
Reid refers to Bieber's beauty a few times in the book. At one point he talks about how the teen had "grown his hair down almost covering his eyes" and that Reid "could see immediately that Justin's hair would be every bit as important as his songs, his voice his face, or his presence."
Later in the chapter, Reid wrote, "Justin was simply beautiful -- his superpower was his face." During Bieber's ascent, it became an Internet meme to compare the singer's looks to that of a woman's.
In a way, that seems to have been a part of his record label's plan all along.

I realize that this must sound like a really dumb question (and maybe it is), but bear with me.
Obviously, there is a link between poverty and violent street crime. But why is that link quite as focused and localized as it is? Why would muggers have to "work" on the same streets where they live? Even poor people can take the subway. What keeps a mugger from crossing town and plying his trade in a wealthier neighbourhood? After all, there would be 2 good incentives for him to do so - fírstly, his potential victims would be wealthier and thus more likely to carry large amounts of money or valuables with them; and secondly, they would be less streetwise and thus less likely to be able and/or willing to effectively fend off the attack.

Making a Murderer has captivated the nation, with growing claims that the documentary proves Wisconsin man Steven Avery was wrongfully convicted of murder. But Nancy Grace told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview that she believes he is absolutely guilty of the rape and murder for which he is serving a life sentence.
“It doesn’t matter what I think,” Grace explained. “It matters what a jury thinks and I agree with the jury. I believe Steven Avery brutally murdered Teresa Halbach. I have watched the show. I kept waiting for them to tell the truth. That never happened.”
The acid-tongued HLN host recounted the evidence that she believes the filmmakers left out of the Netflix documentary.
“Her DNA was on a bullet that was forensically tested and was fired from his weapon that was hanging above his bed. His DNA, his sweat, was under the hood of Teresa’s car. You can’t get a warrant for sweat,” she said. “You can for blood, hair, fingerprints but not sweat.”
Grace continued with evidence she said connected him to the crime. “Her cell phone/camera/PDA were all found burned 20 feet from his back door,” she claimed. “Her tooth was found on his property. It is inconceivable that the police could have planted this much evidence.”
Grace told Radar that she interviewed Avery in 2005 and “grilled him like a hamburger on the Fourth of July.”
She claimed his version of the events did not hold up.
“He tells me that she did come to his place that day,” she said. “Then his story fell apart. He could not explain how someone could have gotten a car to his place without anyone seeing it. He admitted that the day she goes missing, she did go to his place.”
Avery previously served an 18-year sentence for a rape that he did not commit, and it was not until DNA evidence exonerated him that he was released from jail. He then filed a $36 million dollar lawsuit against the county and various officials who he blamed for his erroneous conviction, but just a few months later he became a suspect in Halbach’s murder.
However, the false conviction did not sway Grace into believe he was wrongly convicted a second time by evidence planted by the police.
“It is preposterous to think that two different jurisdictions did this,” she said. “They would have had to kill her, burn her body, put her charred remains in a steel belt that he used as an accelerator.”
“It’s a lie. He murdered her.”

In my opinion, if cats were physicists, and they discovered how to turn light into matter, then I wonder what they would do with the light from laser pointers that they like to chase. I mean, many cats waste their lives away by fruitlessly chasing after the infrared beam that emits from laser pointers. You'd think that they would give up, since they are chasing something which cannot ever actually be caught. Maybe, they are somehow plotting on how to transform that beam of light into something that they would actually enjoy and be able to catch. Such as a mouse, a squirrel or even a blue jay. My cat seems to know that the beam of light does not simply materialize out of thin air. I say this because whenever I go to the kitchen drawer that contains the laser pointer, he gets all excited in anticipation. So, he knows that the light comes from the laser pointer.
The other possibility is that it may be a bad idea to play with cats with these objects, as infrared is surely alien technology. I think that the last thing we, as humans need, is for cats to have anything at all to do with aliens and their technology. That would give us all something to worry about. But, then again, if faced with cats being contacted by aliens, and the possibility of cats becoming minions of the aliens, then maybe we as humans would find peace amongst each other in order to fight the much bigger threat to our very civilization as we know it. That threat being, that we are actually housing and serving spies of the aliens (cats) in our homes. That is one scary thought if you think about it hard enough. Suddenly, the refugee crisis and ISIS wouldn't seem like such a big deal if all of us humans had to deal with cats that are spies and are capable of things such as mind control and other technologies from distant galaxies.

MSNBC president Phil Griffin, whose cable news network is the only one among the big three to lose primetime viewers this season, told staffers he would look to turn things around by continuing a push for younger viewers in 2015.
Griffin, in a memo sent Monday, also promised “to get on the road — and outside of Washington” to broaden the network’s coverage. “It’s no secret that 2014 was a difficult year for the entire cable news industry and especially for msnbc,” Griffin wrote.
“We have a long history of finding and nurturing great talent — and with an eye toward 2016 — we continued to build our next generation of top-notch journalists,” Griffin wrote.
The memo then singled out such 20-something hosts as Ronan Farrow, Kasie Hunt and Alex Seitz-Wald.
It also touted Shift, MSNBC’s just-launched streaming news service, which “is already allowing us to reach new, younger audiences.”
MSNBC’s push to embrace youth makes sense for the only cable news network to see its primetime audience erode in the current season, as measured by Nielsen.
Its 548,000 primetime viewers age 2 and older — down 18 percent from the comparable season a year ago — ranked third to CNN’s 560,000 (up 15 percent) and Fox News Channel’s 1,845,000 (up 1 percent).
MSNBC’s ratings slide suggests that Griffin’s making the network “the place to go for progressives” has outlived its usefulness as an audience builder.
A Pew Research study last year identified MSNBC as the most opinionated news network, with factual reporting accounting for just 15 percent of its content.
Whether the changes suggested in the memo will be enough to extend Griffin’s seven-year stint atop MSNBC remains to be seen.
An early-career claim was Griffin being that rare CNN producer who could get along with Keith Olbermann. The two later reunited at MSNBC until Olbermann left in 2011, took a chunk of its ratings with him and exposed Griffin’s vulnerabilities.
“Few have praised his ability to create strong shows for MSNBC,” a cable news veteran said of Griffin. “Given the fall in ratings, I think he’s in a lot of trouble.”
