Ryan Olohan, 48, accuses Google and one of its top executives, Tiffany Miller, of firing him after Miller groped him at a restaurant in 2019 and told him she knew he liked Asian women. Miller, director of Google’s programmatic media, rubbed Olohan’s abs, complimented his physique, and told him her marriage lacked “spice”.
His coworkers later chalked up the behavior to “Tiffany being Tiffany,” court papers say. Olohan said he reported the issue to Google’s human resources department the following week, but nothing ever came of the complaint.
The HR rep “openly admitted … that if the complaint was ‘in reverse’ — a female accusing a white male of harassment — the complaint would certainly be escalated,” according to the lawsuit. Olohan claims Miller began retaliating against him after he made the complaint by criticizing him and reporting him to human resources for “microaggressions.”
The retaliation allegedly continued at a Google-hosted event in December 2021 in which Miller drunkenly admonished Olohan in front of his colleagues. The rancor was so bad that colleagues encouraged Miller to move to the other end of the table. Miller later apologized and “although Google was aware that Miller’s continued harassment of Olohan stemmed from his rejection of her sexual advances, it again took no action,” the suit claims.
Miller drunkenly berated Olohan yet again during a company get-together at a karaoke bar in April 2022, where she mocked him upon arrival and reiterated that she knew he preferred Asian women over white women — knowing that Olohan’s wife is Asian.
Olohan said he began feeling increasing pressure from his supervisor, who told him that there were “obviously too many white guys” on his management team. In July he was encouraged to fire a male employee to make room on his team for a woman, the suit claims.
The following month, Google fired Olohan, ending his employment after 16 years at the company. During a videoconference call, Olohan said he was told by the Google Employee Investigations team that he was being fired because he was not “inclusive.”
When he asked why he was non-inclusive, Olohan was told that he had shown favoritism towards high-performing employees and that he was “ableist” for commenting on other employees’ “walking pace.”

Thank you to everyone who posted suggestions for dinner the other night. I ended up taking the fish suggestion and it was delicious.
Last night I made something that was so good—some of you might want to give it a go.
Pork Marsala with Angel Hair and Broccoli Rabé
In addition to blanketing the pork medallions, the Marsala and mushroom pan reduction acts as a sauce for the angel hair. That lovely sweetness is balanced by the bitter greens which were first blanched and then sautéed in olive oil, sliced garlic, and red pepper flakes, before being given a big squeeze of lemon and sprinkled with fleur de sel and freshly ground pepper.

My first thoughts are why do some very rich people cut financial support to their kids, but then I remind myself most parents aren’t supporting their children much once they turn 18, yet alone post-college. Why should rich people have to keep their kids on the payroll?
But then I also think about how his kids with Maria Shriver have trust funds and live off daddy and mommy, so why shouldn’t Joseph get a trust fund?
Most rich parents have their kids set up for life. Then there are the rare ones who cut off ties to their kids. Joseph at least can use his father to break into the business if he wants (which he has to an extent, with his physique modeling career and DWTS).

The investigation into the Monterey Park mass shooting is focused on the gunman’s previous interactions at two dance studios he targeted and whether jealousy over a relationship was the motive, according to law enforcement sources.
The sources stressed that the investigation was in its early stages. But detectives believe that 72-year-old Huu Can Tran frequented the clubs — the Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park and the Lai Lai Ballroom and Studio in Alhambra — and that the shooting might have been sparked by a personal dispute.
"We're hearing those things too but have not confirmed any of that information," Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said Monday at a news conference. "It's part of what our investigators are diligently looking into."
Law enforcement sources also believe Tran was having unspecified emotional problems that had been getting worse in the weeks before the shooting.
He showed up at the Hemet Police Department lobby twice this month, on Jan. 7 and 9, making allegations of fraud and theft and saying that his family had tried to poison him in the L.A. area 10 to 20 years ago, Hemet police spokesperson Alan Reyes said.
Tran said he would come back with evidence but never returned, Reyes said.
It will likely take weeks to unravel what happened. Detectives began serving search warrants at multiple locations Sunday.
Inside Tran's home in Hemet, investigators found a .308-caliber rifle, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, electronic devices, including cellphones and computers, and items that led officials to suspect he was manufacturing firearm suppressors, Luna said Monday.
Authorities also seized a Norinco handgun that was registered to Tran from the van where his body was found Sunday, Luna said.
A 9-millimeter semi-automatic MAC-10 assault weapon was also wrested from Tran at an Alhambra dance studio Saturday night.
"I want to emphasize that all the firearms recovered still require additional forensic ballistic examinations and comparisons that we're doing with our partners, as well as additional investigations into the origins of where the suspect got those weapons," Luna said, adding there's "a lot of work to be done there, but we don't want to leave any stone unturned."
Tran had been living at the Lakes at Hemet West, a mobile home park whose sign billed it as “a 55+ active living community,” according to public record and law enforcement sources. A security guard turned away a Times reporter at the front gate Sunday night.
“I still have questions in my mind, which are, what was the motive for this shooter?” U.S. Rep. Judy Chu (D-Monterey Park) said Sunday night during a news conference. "Did he have a mental illness? Was he a domestic violence abuser? How did he get these guns, and was it through legal means? Well, those questions will have to be answered in the future.”
Chester Chong, chair of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles, described the Star Ballroom Dance Studio as an institution in the community.
Chong said conversations among community members in a massive WeChat group after the shooting had led him to believe the shooter’s motive was personal. He said the gunman was looking for a woman who had been invited to an event at the ballroom without him, which made him upset.
He said it’s not uncommon for that to happen.
“The men maybe hate that the wife goes down there and goes dancing with other men,” he said, adding that “a lot of lonely people go down there to date ... other people.”
The WeChat group includes people who were inside the ballroom and saw the violence, he said, but they did not know the gunman.
Grace, a Monterey Park resident who declined to give her last name, said she learned through her WeChat group that Tran had been jealous that a woman he knew had gone out dancing without him Saturday night. He apparently hadn't been invited, she said.
“So many people went to the facility every day," she said of the shooting. "It is sad and extremely cruel."

This film follows the investigation into the 1973 rape and murder of a young Manhattan school teacher. The film is a CBS made-for-television sequel to the 1977 theatrical film Looking for Mr. Goodbar, which itself was based on Judith Rossner's acclaimed 1975 best-selling novel of the same name. However, Trackdown opens with a disclaimer, disassociating itself from Rossner’s novel.

Fred Sargeant participated in each of the nights of the 1969 Stonewall riots and was one of the four co-founders of the first Gay Pride march in New York City in 1970.
Someone tagged me into a post recently about a Pink News article regarding Mark Segal's visit to the UK. I don't link to Pink News pieces because Pink News.
Apparently, Mark's making the rounds in the UK of anyone who'll pay attention to him and giving them whatever they want to hear, even if it's shaded or flat-out fiction. I have this image of Mark, in his old age, accosting any stranger on the street to tell his story. It's not uncommon today to find people who have spent a lifetime self-promoting their involvement at the Stonewall riots and their aftermath to anyone who'll listen. Oddly, his insights never made the cut for the histories about Stonewall and the movement by Carter, Cervini, Duberman, Katz, Marcus or Marotta. It was disappointing to read the untrue statements from someone who professes to be a journalist.
Outrageously, Segal starts his myth fest off by saying that the Stonewall "was the only place that was safe" for gay men in New York. Quite the opposite was true. The Stonewall was the center of a blackmail operation focused on men with "families and jobs" whose scheme was being investigated then by NYPD and the FBI.
In his fractured retelling of the riots, Segal tellingly credits solely the "lowest" of taking on the police. According to Segal, people with "families and jobs" fled the scene; the gay liberation movement was the creation of The Gay Liberation Front, this despite the fact that the people he mentions as being central to the creation of GLF were members of the Mattachine Action Committee at the time of the riots. According to him, GLF was made up of two groups, "faeries and lesbian separatists." Utter nonsense. For every faerie or lesbian separatist that he doesn't name, I can name a student homophile* activist, an adult street youth counselor, or longtime homophile radical who all accomplished more during that period than GLF ever did during its barely yearlong existence. Within six months of Stonewall and GLF's emergence, most left to work with more productive, enduring organizations like Gay Activists Alliance, in large part because of GLF's male-centric focus. Segal's assertion that transgender figures played a substantive role was even then disputed by longtime activist, Craig Rodwell who said that there were "maybe a dozen drag queens" present among the hundreds of predominately gay male youth. Craig was one of the harshest critics of the Stonewall's abuse of the gay community.
Historian David Carter tells us near the end of his seminal history of the riots that "if we wish to name the group most responsible for the riots, it is the young, homeless homosexuals, and, contrary to the usual characterizations of those on the rebellion's front lines, most were Caucasian; few were Latino; almost none were transvestites or transsexuals; most were effeminate; and a fair number came from middle-class families." I would add that we were not led by drug-addled criminals.

I had cataract surgery on both eyes about 6 months ago. My right eye was perfect but my left eye was never clear. I went back to the doctor and he said it needed more time. He made me feel like I shouldn't be bothering him. It has cleared some but it isn't right. My doctor retired and I met with a new doctor and they said the lens in the left eye has slipped down about 50%. I am going to see a Retina Specialist early February. They said it was rare. Has anyone had that occur? A regular Ophthalmologist who did surgery for cataracts wouldn't do the surgery and did the referral. Thanks for any info!

Comedy legend Carol Burnett turns 90 this spring, and she’s celebrating the way icons do — with a prime-time network-TV salute. Vulture hears NBC has greenlit production on Carol Burnett: 90 Years of Laughter + Love, a two-hour special featuring musical and comedy tributes from a small galaxy of celebrities, including Katy Perry, Amy Poehler, Billy Porter, Bernadette Peters, Cher, Steve Carell, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Vicki Lawrence, and Jane Lynch. The special, to be taped in March in front of a star-packed audience, will air on Burnett’s actual birthday, April 26, and will also stream on Peacock.
Executive producer Mark Bracco says he and his colleagues at Silent House Productions (including fellow exec producer Linda Gierahn) first started talking to Burnett and her reps about the special around a year ago. “We approached them and said that this birthday would be a great reason to throw a big party and invite all of her friends and all of her admirers,” he tells Vulture. “And luckily they liked the idea, and NBC wanted to partner with us to do it.” While coordinating celebrity appearances and performances is never easy, “what’s been so great about working on this special is that everybody wants to say yes,” Bracco says. “Everybody wants to come out and celebrate Carol. We were laughing just the other day about how pretty much every single person coming is either an Oscar, Tony, Grammy, or Emmy winner.” Jen Neal, who heads up live events and specials for NBCUniversal TV and streaming, says the company is honored to host the event: “It’s hard to imagine anyone in television more beloved than Carol Burnett.”
Bracco, a veteran producer and former ABC unscripted executive whose credits include the American Music Awards and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, says his goal is to make the two-hour special feel like a “very casual,” old-school Hollywood soirée, with celebrities sitting at banquettes and tables as Burnett is feted onstage. Helping achieve that vibe: The special will tape at the Avalon Hollywood, which in the 1960s played host to The Hollywood Palace, a long-running ABC variety show known for its musical performances. “Music has been a huge part of Carol’s career for all of these decades, dating back to her debut on Broadway in Once Upon a Mattress, as well as the incredible specials she did with Julie Andrews, all of the incredible music on The Carol Burnett Show, and the film version of Annie,” Bracco says, noting that Andrews is scheduled to be in attendance. “So our plan is to take some of those iconic musical moments and pay tribute to them on our stage.” Among the classic Burnett musical numbers set to be honored: “Old Friends” (a tribute to her six-decade friendship with Andrews); “Only an Octave Apart” (from the 1976 special Sills and Burnett at the Met); and, of course, the theme to Burnett’s CBS iconic variety show, “I’m So Glad We Had This Time Together.”
As for the comedy part of Burnett’s career, Bracco says the special will mix a heavy dose of clips with in-person tributes and comedic segments from attendees. “I think everyone is going to want to have some fun with Carol,” he says. Burnett also recently sat down for an extended interview in which she looked back at the highlights of her career, and segments from that chat will be interspersed throughout the night. “We’re going to have really incredible packages in the show that will take us through Carol’s career, all the way back to ’50s and ’60s when she first started and her specials with Julie Andrews, through to The Carol Burnett Show and her movies, and then all of the great TV shows she’s appeared on, from Magnum, P.I., Law & Order: SVU, and Glee to Better Call Saul. It’s a wealth of material, and we’re going to have to figure out how to put it into just two hours,” Bracco says.
In addition to the musical and comedy performances, guests scheduled to appear on the special include designer Bob Mackie, Ellen DeGeneres, Laura Dern, Lily Tomlin, Marisa Tomei, Sofia Vergara, Susan Lucci, and Aileen Quinn.

Tyre Nichols, 29, who was black, died three days after his arrest on 7 January for alleged reckless driving.
The officers, who are all black, also face charges of aggravated assault, aggravated kidnapping, official misconduct and official oppression.
The family of Mr Nichols say an autopsy indicates he was severely beaten.
US President Joe Biden called for "peaceful protest" as authorities prepare to release the footage on Friday evening local time.
The city's police chief earlier also urged people to remain calm once the clip is made public.
"This is not just a professional failing," Cerelyn Davis, who is the first black woman to serve as the city's police chief, said of the ex-officers' alleged conduct.
"This is a failing of basic humanity toward another individual."
The five officers, all of whom joined the Memphis Police Department in the last six years, were fired last week after an investigation found them to be "directly responsible for the physical abuse of Mr Nichols".
Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Desmond Mills Jr, Emmitt Martin III and Justin Smith are all in custody, jail records show. All five former cops were detained on bonds of up to $350,000.
Police bodycam footage of the incident will be released sometime after 6pm Central Time on Friday.

Fox News meteorologist Adam Klotz revealed that he was violently attacked early Sunday morning by a group of “seven or eight teens” during a New York City subway ride, leaving him with bruised ribs, black eyes, and cuts across his face.
Klotz, who has been with the network since 2017, posted two videos to his Instagram account on Sunday morning detailing the altercation and aftermath. Additionally, he said that law enforcement officers had apprehended at least a couple of the attackers.
“Hear me out, though: you should see the other guy,” Klotz quipped in the first video while unveiling his discolored face. “My side—oh, don’t laugh—my side is so much worse than my face.”
The weatherman went on to note that the “other guy” was actually “five or six children” before wondering aloud “where are the parents” and asking them not to “let your kids beat up people in the middle of the night.”
Evoking a far more serious tone, Klotz posted another social media clip a few hours later in which he gave more details about the altercation.
“I feel like that last post seems like I wasn’t being serious. Like this wasn’t real,” he said while zooming the camera on his facial injuries. “But, yeah, coming home last night from watching the [New York] Giants game at a bar, on the subway, this older gentleman was being hassled by this group of seven or eight teens.”
Klotz continued: “And I was like, ‘Yo, guys, cut that out.’ And they decided, ‘Alright, he’s not gonna get it, then you’re going to get it!’ And boy, did they give it to me. They had me on the ground—my ribs are all kinds of bruised up too. They got their hits in!”
The meteorologist did note that the man who was initially being threatened by the group “got out of their fine” and the “cops grabbed a couple of these kids” following the attack.
According to police sources who spoke with the New York Post, Klotz confronted the teens on the No. 1 train around 1:15 a.m. The teens fled the train at the 18th Street stop and three of them were detained by police soon after.
In the end, per a New York Police Department representative, the three teenagers—aged 15 through 17—were soon released from custody.
“Juvenile reports were prepared, and their parents were called to pick them up,” the NYPD rep said.
“I got a couple of X-rays. I’m okay. This is all going to heal,” Klotz stated in the second video, sarcastically adding: “It’s all good! You know what I mean? New York City! New York City! Ahh, what a place. The Big Apple!”
Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and Klotz declined to comment when reached by The Daily Beast.
Fox News, which is headquartered in Manhattan, has recently used the city’s uptick in violent crime to criticize Democratic politicians and liberal criminal justice policies, describing New York as a “hellhole.” While the network’s overall crime coverage noticeably dropped immediately after last year’s midterm elections, Fox News has continued to focus intently on the “crime crisis” in the nation’s largest city.
At the same time, Fox News personalities have been directly impacted by urban violence. Prior to the attack on Klotz, Fox News analyst Gianno Caldwell’s younger brother was shot and killed in Chicago last summer.

Today I suddenly wondered if no one actually likes it, and other guys I’ve been with have only let me do it because I’m so beautiful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen guys fingering each other in gay porn… just chicks fingering guys in straight videos

That's the idea, anyway: the FDA proposed new guidelines today that would no longer require gay and bisexual men in monogamous relationships to abstain from sex before donating blood.
Of course, DL says there's no such thing as a monogamous gay relationship, so I hope the FDA isn't counting on solving the blood shortage this way.

The United States' resident British royal was unimpressed with The King of Rock n' Roll's historic home, according to his recently released memoir.
In his new autobiography, "Spare," Prince Harry described being unimpressed with Graceland, former home of the late Elvis Presley.
"People variously called the house a castle, a mansion, a palace. But it reminded me of the badger sett," Prince Harry wrote. "Dark, claustrophobic. I walked around saying, ‘The King lived here, you say? Really?’"
Elvis lived at Graceland from June 26, 1957, until his death Aug. 16, 1977.
In the book, Prince Harry quipped that whoever picked out the decor of the famous residence must have been on drugs.
Prince Harry recalled, "I stood in one tiny room with loud furniture and shag carpet and thought, ‘The King’s interior designer must have been on acid.’"
The immensely popular tourist attraction attracts more than 600,000 visitors a year, according to the property, and features some 200,000 square feet of entertainment space, restaurants, gift shops and more.
It is the second most-visited house in the country, behind only the White House.

The U.S. economy ended last year on a solid footing despite the pressure of high interest rates and widespread fears of a looming recession.
The Gross Domestic Product — the sum of all goods and services that make up the economy — expanded at a 2.9% annual pace from October through December of 2022, the Commerce Department said Thursday. For the year overall, GDP grew 2.1%.
Thursday's estimate showed that the economy slowed last quarter from the 3.2% annual growth rate it had posted from July through September.
Most economists think the economy will slow further in the current quarter and slide into at least a mild recession by midyear.
The housing market, which is especially vulnerable to higher loan rates, has already been badly bruised: Sales of existing homes have dropped for 11 straight months.
And consumer spending, which fuels roughly 70% of the entire economy, is likely to soften in the months ahead, along with the still-resilient job market.
"Consumer spending — the economy's main growth engine — is expected to weaken as income growth softens and households can no longer rely on excess savings to maintain their desired pace of spending," economists at Oxford Economics said in a note. More interest-rate hikes on the way
The economy's expected slowdown is a planned consequence of the Federal Reserve's aggressive series of rate hikes.
The Fed raised its benchmark rate seven times last year in a bid to reduce growth, cool spending and crush the worst inflation bout in four decades. It is set to do rate hikes again when it meets next week, though this time by a smaller amount.
Inflation remains stubbornly high even though it has been gradually easing. Year-over-year inflation was raging at a 9.1% rate in June, a 40-year high. It has since cooled — to 6.5% in December — but is still far above the Fed's 2% annual target.

These adorkable, film geek, Oscar prognosticators were a tonic for me during all the negative award show haters infesting the interwebs throughout the year. They have pretty good taste in movies, but also understand the idiosyncratic nature of award show alchemy. I believe they are based in NYC. They start their Oscar predictions early - a week after the awards. They keep up with and attend all the important festivals of the year including SXSW, Cannes, TIFF, and Sundance among others. If you want to skip the review videos and award run-downs go straight to their singular awards nomination reactions. They are histrionically expressive; mugging, gesticulating, and writhing around the furniture. It's quite entertaining. They seem to have decent builds too.

It's been more than 6 months since Ivana Trump's tragic passing, and her will has been read and made public. Who got her fabulous one-bedroom / one bathroom condo which she bought for $635,000 in 2009 and is worth more than $1M today ? None of her children nor any of her realtives. The condo went to Susanna Curry, former nanny to her three despciable kids and now owner of Tiger, Ivana’s beloved Yorkshire terrier. Curry never left her side - after her 'nanny days' came to an end, Ivanna kept Curry as her personal assistant, closest friend and confidante.
“I give and bequeath my dog, Tiger Trump, or any other pet that I will have at the time of my death, to my friend Suzanne Dorothy Curry,” the will says.
The rest of Ivanna's $34 M estate - which includes two residences in St. Tropez, furs, and jewelry - were divided among her three children . This includes her Manhattan townhouse, close to Central Park, which her children currently have listed for $26M.
Marla Maples, Tiffany Trump, Melania Trump, Barron Trump and her ex-husband Donald Trump received nothing - for reasons which are known to them.

The new Broadway musical "Some Like It Hot" (based on the movie of the same name) is the latest musical to be "on the bubble", and according to rumors in the theater community, there could be an announcement as soon as this Tuesday of an early closing on January 1 or January 8 (again, a rumor going around theater circles, nothing official as of yet). A horrible box office, despite rave reviews from critics across the board, is the culprit.
The show opened December 11, yet attendance for the musical comedy has spiraled downward ever since. Some theatergoers have taken photos of the inside of the theater the past few days - right before showtime - with the mezzanine and the balcony completely empty and the orchestra seats about 75% full. Last night and today wasn't expected to be much better with the horrible weather which hit the northeast, including NJ. Ticket prices remain high, though producers seem reluctant at this point to put them on TKTS or any other ticket discount site (though some theater goers say they have seen 'a handful' of tickets on TDF.
Should this close early, this will be the third move based on 'cross-dressing comedies' to fail on Broadway in as many years. "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Tootsie" both opened in the past few years (though they had the pandemic to deal with ) and bombed on Broadway - each closing early.

Priscilla Presley, the former wife of late singer Elvis Presley, has filed to take control of daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s estate, according to new court documents obtained by The Blast.
The American singer-songwriter passed away suddenly on January 12 after suffering a cardiac arrest in her home in Calabasas, California. She was rushed to West Hills Hospital in Los Angeles but passed away at the age of 54.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Lisa Marie Presley appointed her mother, Priscilla Presley, and former business manager Barry Siegel as co-Trustees of her estate in a 2010 restatement. On February 8, 2020, both Barry and Priscilla consented to serve as co-Trustees in another legal document.
After Lisa Marie Presley passed away, her mother discovered that another document existed that seemed to be an amendment to the 2010 Trust that she had previously consented to. This document was dated March 11, 2016.
This new legal document removed Priscilla and Barry as both current and future successors of the Trust. Instead, this new document named Lisa Marie's daughter, Riley Keough, and her son, Benjamin Keough, as successor co-Trustees of her estate. Sadly, her son Benjamin took his own life in July 2020 and was buried at Graceland in Tennessee, where Lisa Marie Presley was also laid to rest.
Priscilla Presley notes in the court papers, obtained by The Blast, that there are "many issues surrounding the authenticity and validity of the Purported 2016 Amendment." One of these issues is that this amendment was allegedly never delivered to Priscilla while Lisa Marie Presley was alive, which was required by the terms of the original trust.
The date of the 2016 Purported Trust Amendment was also added via PDF on March 14, which raises questions about when the document was actually created. The 2016 Amendment, which was allegedly signed by Lisa Marie Presley, spelled her mother's name wrong, adding another layer of suspicion to this case.
There are also no provisions listed in the Purported 2016 Amendment on the signature page. Priscilla states that Lisa Marie Presley's signature "appears inconsistent with her usual and customary signature." To top things off, she noted that the Purported 2016 Amendment was neither witnessed nor notarized.
Based on this information, Priscilla contends that "the Purported 2016 Amendment is an invalid modification of the restated 2010 trust and that the restated 2010 trust is the authoritative and controlling document." As such, she is asking a court to order that the 2016 Purported Amendment is invalid. She wants them to confirm and validate the initial 2010 trust that would put her back in charge of her daughter's estate.
The Blast has also learned the Presley Charitable Foundation is a contingent beneficiary of the Trust and Michael Lockwood, the father of Lisa Marie Presley’s twins Finley and Harper, will receive notice.
In a touching Twitter tribute, Priscilla wrote, “Thank you all for your condolences, you have touched me with your words. It has been a very difficult time but just knowing your love is out there makes a difference.”
“To YOU, I’m truly overwhelmed with your words, your prayers, your love and your support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart in trying to help me get through this loss,” she continued. “Every parent who has lost a daughter or son knows what a dark painstaking journey it is.”
The estate of late singer Michael Jackson also paid tribute to Lisa Marie Presley after her tragic passing. They were only married for two years and went their separate ways in 1996.
In a short statement made to The Blast, John Branca and John McClain from the estate of Michael Jackson wrote, “We are saddened by the sudden tragic loss of Michael’s former wife, Lisa Marie Presley. Michael cherished the special bond they enjoyed as apparent in the official video for ‘You Are Not Alone’, and was comforted by Lisa Marie’s generous love, concern and care during their times together.“

Video evidence of the violent attack on former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, was released on Friday after a judge ruled against prosecutors who sought to keep it sealed.
The footage, taken from a police body camera, shows officers knocking on the door of Pelosi’s San Francisco home on Oct. 28. When the door opens, Paul Pelosi, 82, and the alleged attacker, David DePape, 42, are seen both holding on to a hammer.
“What’s going on, man?” an officer asks.
“Everything’s good,” DePape replied.
“Drop the hammer,” the officer says to the men.
"Nope," says DePape, who then pulls the hammer away from Pelosi before striking him multiple times as police move in.
The bodycam video shows police on top of DePape as Pelosi lies on ground, not moving and struggling to breathe.
“Give me your f***ing hands,” an officer tells DePape.
Surveillance footage from an exterior camera released by the U.S. Capitol Police Friday shows DePape using a hammer to smash a glass door in the back of the Pelosi residence and climb through.
Audio from a police interview with DePape was also released.
DePape pleaded not guilty to numerous federal and state charges, including attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment of an elder, attempted kidnapping of a federal officer and an assault on the immediate family member of a federal officer.
According to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court, DePape was carrying a bag with zip ties and duct tape when he broke into the home and accosted Paul Pelosi, repeatedly asking, “Where is Nancy?”
During DePape's interview with police, he claimed his plan had been to hold Nancy Pelosi hostage and talk to her. He said that if she had told the truth, he intended to let her go but that if she had lied, he would have broken her kneecaps.
By breaking her kneecaps, DePape told police that “she would then have to be wheeled into Congress, which would show other members of Congress there were consequences to actions,” the complaint stated.
Nancy Pelosi was in Washington, D.C., and not home during the attack.
“I’m not going to say anything right now," she said when asked by reporters on Capitol Hill Friday about the newly released footage. "I may shortly.”
Paul Pelosi suffered a fractured skull and underwent surgery. He is expected to make a full recovery.
San Francisco Superior Court Judge Stephen M. Murphy ruled Wednesday that there was no reason not to release the footage to the public, especially after prosecutors played it in open court during a preliminary hearing last month.
Multiple news organizations had requested that the footage be released.
The attack led to unfounded conspiracy theories about Paul Pelosi and fears among prosecutors that any footage of the incident could be manipulated.
Thomas R. Burke, a San Francisco lawyer who represented news organizations seeking the video, said such fears should not prevent its release.
“You don't eliminate the public right of access just because of concerns about conspiracy theories,” Burke said.

If nothing else looks interesting, I’ll go with Honda. I like the look of the Fiat Mini. I watched a YouTube video that said it’s made of plastic and repairs or even oil changes are a pain. I’m an elder. I want a no worry car. Anyone ever own a Fiat before?

Admittedly I have a soft voice for a male. Sometimes when I'm on the phone the operator will call me "ma'am" and I have to correct them. I've been told I sound like Michael Jackson(A huge insult!😡) and in my personal life both men and women tend to disregard my opinions and boundaries and I think its because of my voice. I've seen other guys get complements for having more bass in their voice and it makes me feel insecure. Even family members make fun of my voice and it makes me want to crawl under a rock. How can I fight for more respect with a soft voice?

Troy & Sandra were the teen dream team of their era, supported here by a great supporting cast: Dorothy McGuire, Arthur Kennedy, Richard Egan, and scene stealer Constance Ford as Sandra's monster mother. Here's looking at Troy, when he was just 23.

The medals from the figure skating team event at the Beijing Olympics are still half a world away, stashed for safe keeping by the International Olympic Committee, though no one seems to know when they will be presented. “In our heart, we know that it will come — it’s delayed gratification,” American skater Evan Bates said of the silver medal he and his teammates won in Beijing. That silver medal could be gold depending on the results of an investigation that many involved believe has gone too long. It’s been nearly a year since news of Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva’s positive test for a banned substance became known a day after she helped lead the Russian Olympic Committee to a gold medal in the team event. The IOC made the unusual decision to cancel the event’s medal ceremony until Valieva’s case could be studied and eventually ruled upon by Russia’s anti-doping authorities and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to determine if Valieva’s test disqualified her — and the Russian team.

What presented about 6 weeks ago as sinus issues and then possibly into a sinus infection. Sinus headaches, swollen nasal passages. Teledoc said to try Flonase and Clairitin and also sent me for a PCR which came back negative.
Felt somewhat better, but two weeks later, got bad again and teledoc prescribed antibiotics. Midway through the course, tenderness around my left eye socket and more headache pain over the left eye, getting increasingly worse. Afrin doesn't help, ibuprofen or Naproxen doesn't help. I'm also in the middle of a short course of prednisone for a back issue which finishes tomorrow.
Last night, my left upper lip started to feel numb and my left eye was watering and I had pain behind it. Saw an ENT this morning who scoped my nose and checked ears and throat and could see no infection. He suspected migraine, even though I have no history. He prescribed Imitrex, which I took today and has done nothing. My upper left teeth are now numb, as well. No pain in the mouth, no swelling, no bleeding. I called my dentist to see if I needed to make an emergency visit and he never called me back.
ENT said if the Imitrex didn't work, we would do a CT scan of my head, but the first appt isn't for 2 weeks. I am in constant pain and I just want to figure out what this is and fix it. I'm reluctant to go to the ER even though I'm not sure I can take the pain much longer.
Anyone with any similar experiences? Obviously I'm not looking for a diagnosis in lieu of going to a doctor, but I'd love to hear that i'm not going to have to give away all my stuff. Thanks.

These days, Adam Scott is probably best known for his role as Ben Wyatt in Parks and Recreation, which earned him two Critics’ Choice Award nominations for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
You might also recognize him for his breakout supporting role in the 2008 comedy movie Step Brothers, or for starring opposite Ben Stiller in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
More recently, Adam’s performance as Mark Scout in the Apple TV series Severance earned him an Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category.
But you might not be aware that the actor got his big break playing Griff Hawkins in Season 2 of the ABC sitcom Boy Meets World.
Adam was 21 years old when he joined the series as a recurring cast member, having only worked as a background actor in the past.
In fact, prior to landing the role of Griff, Adam had even appeared as a background character in an earlier episode of Boy Meets World.
Griff was brought in toward the end of the season to replace Harley Keiner as the leader of the school bullies. Griff was a last-minute addition to the show after the actor who played Harley left abruptly because he was struggling with his mental health at the time.
All in all, Adam ended up appearing in three episodes of Season 2, and one episode of Season 3.
And while there is no doubt that Adam has managed to make a name for himself away from his Boy Meets World legacy, he revealed this week that some of his experiences on the show had sat with him for the last three decades.
On Monday, the actor joined his former castmates Danielle Fishel, Rider Strong, and Will Friedle as a guest star on their rewatch podcast, Pod Meets World, where he awkwardly confronted them over the way that he was treated back in the ’90s.
Adam said that he had a memory of Rider that had stuck with him since 1995, and also recalled hearing that Danielle had told people that nobody on the set liked him.
Both of these anecdotes were surprising to the stars, with Danielle insisting that the latter had never happened.
Adam kicked off the discussion by saying that once he knew that he was going to be speaking with them on the podcast, he’d told his family that he was looking forward to “finally” asking Rider about “something that has been bothering” him “for 29 years.”
“I don’t know if you remember this, Rider,” Adam began, with Rider nervously replying that he “probably” won’t as Danielle and Will admitted that they were on the edge of their seats.
“Literally, this has been tugging at me for 29 years,” Adam continued, before setting the scene that he was backstage watching the Season 2 finale being filmed with his fellow guest stars Blake Soper and Ethan Suplee — who played Griff’s “lackeys” Joey and Frankie — when the incident occurred.
“I was with Blake and Ethan. Rider, you were there with a different group of people but we were all gathering around knowing the last scene was about to finish,” Adam went on.
“The scene ends, everyone just erupts and starts cheering,” he explained. “Blake and Ethan high-five and hug, they come up to me and high five and are just cheering… Then Blake and Ethan go up to you, Rider, and give you a high five and hug you and after they do that I’m like, hey, congratulations, buddy, and give you a high five and go in and hug you.”
“And as I do that,” Adam recalled, “you push me off and you give me this look like, ‘Wait a second, who the fuck are you?’ and then you ran away.”
Rider, Danielle, and Will could not hide their shock at Adam’s revelation and awkwardly laughed as Rider exclaimed: “Are you serious?! Why would I do that?!”
Visibly uncomfortable, he went on to insist that he didn’t remember the moment “at all,” to which Adam said: “I’m so glad you don’t remember that because to some extent that means it wasn’t a traumatic experience for you.”
“But I remember just being like, oh no no no no! I’m sorry! What just happened? No no no,” he added.

I was in need of a snack and opened the refrigerator to see what would satisfy. I roasted a chicken a few days ago and have leftover meat. I also had some diced cucumber and sweet yellow pepper left over from rice/bean burritos I made a few days ago.
So I made an ad-hoc chicken salad with some shredded chicken, the diced cucumber and pepper together with some green goddess dressing plus some fresh ground pepper. Toasted 2 small pieces of sprouted whole grain bread and slathered one side with avocado, added the chicken salad and sprinkled about a tablespoon of bottom-of-bag Ruffles potato chips crumbs on top.
Nothing fancy, but it was damn delicious. I think I'll be making this again as it really had a nice combination of flavors.

I’ve been trying for a few years now to track down this exact type of whiskey glass as a gift for my sister who is obsessed with the movie Moonstruck. And I’ve come close but haven’t found the exact glass Olympia Dukakis and what’s his face are holding. I’ve tried Replacements Ltd countless times, eBay, Etsy, auctions. Also eBay Canada because much of the actual film set shot inside the house was in Toronto. You name it, I’ve looked.
They’re close to Ebeling and Reuss Marchioness, but not quite. Marchioness has a gold rim at the top of the glass, whereas the glasses I want have a thin gold band at the top and bottom of the ruby band. I‘ve also looked at countless mid-century Bohemian cut-to-clear glassware. Nope not it. Couldn’t find any Italian glassmakers who match either.
I’m at a loss and I’m sick of looking and was hoping some eagle-eyed expert here can just tell me exactly who made them and where I can find them. I can post more photos if needed. Anyone who can chime in with their expertise is appreciated. Except Greg. Greg and his cod and prunes can go to hell. (joking) (maybe)

Unless you've had major surgery or were a Michael Jackson death junkie I'd bet you'd never even heard about fentanyl. I found out about this drug when it was prescribed by my doctor after surgery.
Cut to today. The death by overdose number continues to explode because doctors stopped prescribing the more rational pain medication. I firmly believe that 999 out of every 1000 overdose deaths are due to fentanyl being subbed out for the pain medications oxycodone and oxycontin. Fentanyl is being cheaply manufactured in China and other foreign countries and making its way to this country through the usual routes, including Mexico.
So let's look at the other 'problem' drugs oxycodone and oxycontin.
I do not doubt that a number of people were once using these drugs to get high.
I do not doubt that people were once abusing these drugs and becoming addicted.
I do not doubt that these drugs were once being over-prescribed. These are all facts. There will always be a fraction of the population with the propensity to become addicted to the drug du jour. That type of drug abuse problem was not so much with the drug USERS, but with the drug PRESCRIBERS, over-prescribing, making some extra cash by selling prescriptions, and just being lazy 'here-take-this-pill-and-you'll-feel-fine' doctors. If they had prescribed those oxys in a more responsible, professional manner things would not have gotten so out of hand.
The outcome of all this mess has been one of excruciating pain for those that depended on legal, effective, and non-lethal when prescribed and used responsibly pain medication relief. These are the people left with no choices for controlling their pain. They depended on these drugs to be able to live a more normal life. To be able to get out of bed every day. To control the awful pain of cancer. These are the forgotten people that are the ones taking the risk of trying fentanyl. Some throw in the towel with suicide as their best option. This is real and it happens every day. Debilitating, constant pain for many is a real thing that can only be somewhat 'fixed' by using pain medication.
The fentanyl crisis is a manufactured crisis. Manufactured by the government stepping in to control the opioid crisis. The government has turned this into a death-by-fentanyl crisis that never had to happen. Responsible prescribing and dispensing of opioids would have been enough. Instead, they threw the baby out with the bath water by making oxycontin and oxycodone so ridiculously difficult to get prescribed that an entirely new crisis came to be.
Just try to get a prescription for whatever pain you might be going through. Pray you never break any bones and need a short prescription to get you through a few days of serious pain. Good luck leaving the hospital after surgery. They will send you home with a prescription for Tylemol. You won't get that prescription, not any more. That is the real crisis.

The pandemic did many in. The closing of Denmark's Noma, hailed as the world's most innovative restaurant, was necessitated, according to the chef-owner, because the model is unsustainable. In the NYT, Southern chef Vivian Howard writes of experiencing similar problems with her North Carolina restaurant specializing in regional produce and foodstuffs, where the average dining tab was $60 a piece. She says her new restaurant will be different and more sustainable.
"I plan to reopen Chef & the Farmer in the next year. It will suit both the guests and the people who feed them. We won’t rely on the diners to pay servers; the chefs will serve, cafeteria style, at our retrofitted kitchen bar. The energy we put into elevated service and its trappings will flow directly into the only “program” we have chosen to keep — our food. Most important, we will open to diners just four days a week, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., because that’s the kind of schedule that nurtures staff retention.
But our kitchen will make money seven days a week, because we’ll be cooking for people whose butts are not in our dining room. Chefs who have graduated from nights on the line to quiet days in the kitchen will cook meals to stock the restaurant’s small collection of free-standing, strategically located smart fridges. Covid gave us many horrible things, but it also birthed a new and relatively inexpensive way to enjoy food tapped by a chef’s magic wand at home. Next-level take-and-bakes, chef-prepared assemble-and-eats and pasta deliveries, when coupled with an already operating kitchen, will help make us whole."
Do you think fine dining is living on borrowed time? What chance does Vivian's new place have for success?

The global trek will celebrate Madonna's deep catalog of hits, sources tell Billboard.
Madonna is planning a massive 40th anniversary tour later this year with her longtime concert promotion partner and producer Live Nation and music manager Guy Oseary, sources tell Billboard.
The 64-year-old pop icon will perform music from her entire catalogue, dating back to her 1983 self-titled debut album through her most recent studio album, 2019’s Madame X. The world tour will be Madonna’s first ever career retrospective, featuring a compilation of her biggest hits across four decades of music and will reportedly include a multi-night run at the O2 in London.
“It’s going to be the biggest tour she’s ever done,” one executive familiar with her plans tells Billboard. The tour will include both stadium and arena dates, the source says, and include over-the-top production that delivers both “Material Girl” kitsch and occasionally outrageous sex appeal with plenty of show-stopping moments made for social media.
The tour buzz comes just months after Madonna released her career-spanning compilation album Finally Enough Love: 50 Number Ones, spanning her entire dance club career, featuring remixes by top producers including 20 rare recordings officially released for the first time. In 2021, Madonna signed a deal with Warner Music Group for an “extensive, multi-year series of catalog releases that will revisit the groundbreaking music that made her an international icon.”
Madonna last toured in 2019 and early 2020 on her Madame X tour, a theater run that was struggled through production delays and Madonna’s recurring hip and knee injuries. While the Madame X tour earned strong critical reviews in the press, its habitually late start time often angered ticket holders and prompted two class actions lawsuits from fans.
When it comes to choosing her nightly set list for this new tour, Madonna will have no shortage of songs to choose from with 57 titles charting on the Billboard Hot 100, 38 top 10 hits and 12 No. 1s, including 1990’s “Vogue,” and 2000’s “Music,” released a decade apart and each spending 24 weeks on the Hot 100. Madonna’s “Borderline” from 1984 spent 30 weeks on the Hot 100. She followed that impressive feat a decade later with the ballad “Take a Bow,” which held the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 for seven weeks.
Madonna’s 2008-2009 Sticky and Sweet Tour is the highest grossing tour by a female artist ever, according to Billboard Boxscore, netting $407 million. Her most recent Madame X theater run grossed $36.4 million with 124,655 ticket sold.
Reps for Madonna could not be reached for comment at time of publishing.

BOSTON − The 8-month-old boy who was seriously injured inside his Duxbury home Tuesday night has died of his injuries at a Boston hospital, the Plymouth County District Attorney's Office said. His siblings, 5-year-old Cora and 3-year-old Dawson, also died.
“(Friday), at approximately 12:30 p.m., the state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner contacted Massachusetts State Police assigned to our office to report that at 11:18 a.m., the third Clancy child was pronounced deceased at Children’s Hospital in Boston,” district attorney spokeswoman Beth Stone said in a statement.
Police responded to a 911 call Tuesday night reporting a woman's attempted suicide on Summer Street in Duxbury. When officers arrived, they found a woman seriously injured after jumping from her second-story window, and two of her children strangled to death inside. Calen Clancy, the 8-month-old boy, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
Lindsay Clancy, 32, is already facing two counts of murder in the deaths of Cora and Dawson Clancy, 3, as well as three counts each of strangulation and assault and battery with a deadly weapon. She is being treated for her injuries at the scene. Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz said her condition "is a moving target."
Cora and Dawson were pronounced dead at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth Tuesday. Cruz said the medical examiner's office will be responsible for determining the exact means and causes of their deaths, but that it appears they were strangled.
Cruz said "nobody is here to speculate" as to what exactly happened or why Clancy may have killed her own children. Duxbury Police Chief Michael Carbone wouldn't say if police were familiar with the Clancy family or if any prior 911 calls to the home had been made.
"Our hearts and condolences go out to the Clancy family," Cruz said. "I cannot begin to fathom the depths of pain that might be going on."
The incident has prompted conversations about postpartum depression and psychosis as the "unthinkable tragedy" leaves people across the region searching for answers.
Historically, cases of women who have killed their children have often involved postpartum depression or psychosis, the latter being a condition that can severely alter a person’s mental state after giving birth. If left untreated, it can pose serious dangers to both the mother and her child.
Nancy Byatt, a perinatal psychiatrist at the University of Massachusetts Medical School who is an expert on maternal depression, said postpartum psychosis can "hijack the brain."

What's the verdict, DL?
A Glossop teenager, whose extreme right-wing videos were cited by a man who murdered 10 people in a terrorist attack in the US, has been jailed for encouraging terrorism.
Daniel John Harris also tried to make a gun with a 3D printer.
The 19-year-old made and uploaded five videos to an online channel, between February 2021 and March 2022. In the clips, he praised the 2019 terrorist attacks in New Zealand, criticised peaceful protest, produced how-to guides and called for the death of those who work in the criminal justice system.
Harris’ clips were commented on and referenced seven times by the man who murdered ten people in a racially-motivated attack at a supermarket in Buffalo, USA, in May last year. Further evidence shows another was used on the website of a man accused of killing five people at a gay club in Colorado in November.
A sixth charge related to the possession of the 3D printer, with intent.
Harris was arrested by officers from Counter-Terrorism Policing in the East Midlands (CTP EM) at his home in Glossop on 16 May 2022 – two days after the attack in Buffalo – and charged with a number of offences.
n December, following a trial at Manchester Crown Court, he was found guilty of five counts of encouraging terrorism (contrary to Section 1 of the Terrorism Act 2006) and one count of possession of material for terrorist purposes (contrary to Section 57 of the Terrorism Act 2000).
Today (Friday 27 January), Harris, of Lord Street in Glossop, was jailed for 11-and-a-half-years – with a further three years on licence.

LONDON -- A pop-up urinal crushed a man to death in London’s theater district Friday, police said.
Firefighters used a winch to free the man after he became trapped under a hydraulic urinal at Cambridge Circus, a busy intersection in the city’s West End.
The Metropolitan Police force said the man “is thought to have sustained crush injuries while working on a telescopic urinal.” The force said that “despite the efforts of emergency services,” he was pronounced dead at the scene.
His identity was not released.
The retractable urinals are dotted throughout London’s entertainment districts, stored below ground during the day and raised at night.

It just does not make sense to me. Isn't the whole purpose of being gay is because you like MEN? So therefore how on earth could you find fems attractive? It defeats the whole purpose of being gay. You might as well go be with a woman.
Are the guys that like fems actually bi and not gay? That would make more sense to me since bi guys are of course attracted to both men and women so maybe they are turned on by feminine men?
P.S.: I am a masculine gay man myself that is strictly only attracted to other masculine men and I am not trying to offend anyone at all, I am just simply curious to hear different opinions on this...

Originally shot on Ansco Color film stock (a relatively unpopular format that was a favorite of director Vincente Minnelli for its speed and color reproduction), The Long, Long Trailer is chock full of picturesque locations including California's Pines to Palms Scenic Byway and Yosemite National Park. It's a great-looking film that shines brightly on Blu-ray thanks to Warner Archive's restoration efforts, which in this case begin with a recent 4K scan of the color negative and a little help from a duplicate, reportedly less than a minute's worth of footage.
This new scan from (mostly) first-generation elements, combined with Warner Archive's usual meticulous attention to manual cleanup, results in a jaw-dropping 1080p transfer featuring excellent color saturation, crisp fine detail, and a purely film-like appearance that remains clean and blemish-free. One particular scene -- a pre-disaster backyard meeting with Tacy's relatives at their Colorado home -- looks so perfectly crisp and natural that it supports that time-honored HDTV cliché of "looking out a window". Even mundane traffic jams appear picture-perfect here. It's just one of many well-handled Warner Archive transfers deserving of the full five-star rating, and an absolutely spectacular way to welcome this film to Blu-ray.
One added bonus is that WAC's Blu-ray presents The Long, Long Trailer in its original 1.75:1 aspect ratio for the first time on home video. An unconventional shape, to be sure, but one that translates well to 16x9 displays.

The neighborhood was formerly a food desert but now has an Aldi and a community-sponsored produce market.The average annual household income in Englewood is $35,479, while the median household income sits at $23,019 per year.
The residents are irate they were not consulted in the decision.

Why can’t non-iPhone users just use SMS? I’m not sure about other countries, but at least in the US, most major carriers these days give you unlimited worldwide SMS. WhatsApp is clunky, and when you’re having conversations with multiple people, it’s a pain to have to switch to another app just for one person.

Not the Onion- KFC’s German branch has apologized for seeming to encourage its customers to mark the anniversary of Kristallnacht — the notorious Nazi pogrom against Jews — by eating chicken, saying that a promotional message was sent in error as a result of an automated push notification.
The pogrom that began on Nov. 9, 1938, is known as the night of broken glass, and is widely commemorated as the start of the Holocaust. It was a coordinated assault on German Jews and their homes, businesses and synagogues.
On Wednesday, KFC Germany sent a message to users of its app with the title “Anniversary of the Reich’s pogrom night,” according to reports in the German news media and screen shots of the promotion that circulated widely on Twitter. The message invited customers to enjoy “tender cheese with crispy chicken.”

I'm Bradley Little, 37 years old and Editor of Architectural Digest, who was murdered after leaving a club in Palm Springs. I still believe that Paige Rense had something to do with this!
Architectural Digest is an American monthly magazine founded in 1920. Its principal subjects are interior design and landscaping, rather than pure external architecture. The magazine is published by Condé Nast, which also publishes international editions of Architectural Digest in Italy, China, France, Germany, India, Spain, Mexico/Latin America and the Middle East.
Architectural Digest is aimed at an affluent and style-conscious readership, and is subtitled "The International Design Authority." The magazine releases the annual AD100 list, which recognizes the most influential interior designers and architects around the world.
Architectural Digest also hosts a popular online video series entitled Open Door that gives an in-depth look at the unique homes of various prominent celebrities and public figures.
Originally a quarterly trade directory called The Architectural Digest: A Pictorial Digest of California's Best Architecture, the magazine was launched in 1920 by John Coke Brasfield (1880–1962). Brasfield, born in Tennessee, moved to southern California in the early 1900s, where he founded the John C. Brasfield Publishing Corporation in Los Angeles. Interiors and exteriors of residences were featured in the magazine, along with floor plans.
By 1963, the magazine's subtitle had been altered to A Pictorial Digest of Outstanding Architecture, Interior Design, and Landscaping, and it began publishing on a bimonthly schedule. In 1965, The Architectural Digest and its publishing company were purchased by Cleon T. Knapp, who was the magazine's "jack-of-all-trades" and Brasfield's grandson. Knapp son of Brasfield's daughter Sarah "Sally" Brasfield Knapp (1910–1996), who served, at various times, as the magazine's editor in chief, managing editor, and associate publisher. The magazine's subtitle was altered to The Quality Guide to Home Decorating Ideas in 1966, and was changed again, in 1971, to The Connoisseur's Magazine of Fine Interior Design, and in 1976 to The International Magazine of Fine Interior Design. The John C. Brasfield Publishing Company was renamed Knapp Communications Corporation in 1977.
Condé Nast Publications purchased Architectural Digest, as well as its sister publication Bon Appétit, from Knapp in 1993.
In 2011 the Chinese version of the magazine, AD China, was launched. The magazine is also published in other countries, including Germany, India, France, Italy, United States and Spain.
Architectural Digest won the 2020 Webby People’s Voice Award for Architecture & Design in the category Web.
Architectural Digest employees unionized in 2022. Also, in 2022 Architectural Digest Russia closed after Condé Nast pulled out of Russia.
Editors in chief
John C. Brasfield, 1920–1960
(James) Bradley Little 1960–1965; a former interior designer, who served as editorial director and editor in chief from 1964 until his death in 1971.
Cleon T. Knapp, 1965–1974 (also served as publisher during the same period)
Paige Rense, 1975–2010; she previously served as the magazine's associate editor, 1968–1971, and its executive editor, 1971–1975.
Margaret Russell, 2010–2016
Amy Astley, 2016–present
Since the 2010 change in leadership, the magazine has seen a shift towards featuring lighter, more open interiors, brighter photography, and a modern graphic style

Justin Bieber finalized the sale of his music catalog to Hipgnosis on Tuesday, placing most of his music under the ownership of the U.K. investment firm.
The big picture: John Legend and Bruce Springsteen are among the high-profile music artists to have sold their music catalogs in recent days, but Bieber, 28, reportedly has secured the biggest sale of anyone in his generation.
Details: Hipgnosis acquired all of Bieber's interest in his publishing copyrights, master recordings and neighboring rights for his entire back catalog, which comprises over 290 titles released before Dec. 31, 2021.
The financial terms were not disclosed but the deal is valued at an estimated $200 million, which is Hipgnosis' biggest acquisition to date, per multiple reports. What they're saying: "This acquisition ranks among the biggest deals ever made for an artist under the age of 70, such is the power of this incredible catalogue that has almost 82 million monthly listeners and over 30 billion streams on Spotify alone," Hipgnosis Song Management founder and CEO Merck Mercuriadis said in a statement.
Bieber's longtime manager Scooter Braun said in a statement, "Justin is truly a once in a generation artist and that is reflected and acknowledged by the magnitude of this deal."

When Lex debuts this season, it's been years since he dropped out of the public eye and he's re-emerging hellbent on correcting a personal injustice by enacting revenge on the two people he feels have wronged him — Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch).

Alexandra Daddario has been cast in the lead role of the “Mayfair Witches” series at AMC, Variety has learned exclusively.
Based on Anne Rice’s “The Lives of the Mayfair Witches” novels, the show was picked up to series at AMC in December 2021. Daddario will star as Rowan, a brilliant doctor who grapples with her fate as the heir to a family of powerful witches.
“Alexandra is a singular talent who has lit up the screen in everything she’s been in and we couldn’t be happier to have her on board leading the cast of a series that will be a centerpiece of an expanding Anne Rice universe on AMC+ and AMC,” said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks. “We found our Rowan and can’t wait for her to meet viewers later this year in a series being brilliantly conceived and led by Esta, Michelle and Mark.”
This marks the latest major TV role for Daddario in recent years. She was last seen in the critically-acclaimed first season of HBO’s “The White Lotus.” She has also starred in shows like “Why Women Kill,” “The Girlfriend Experience,” and “True Detective.” On the film side, Daddario is known for her roles in features such as “San Andreas,” “We Have Always Lived in a Castle,” “Lost Transmissions,” and “Can You Keep a Secret?,” the last of which she also executive produced.
Daddario is repped by UTA, Untitled Entertainment, Rogers & Cowan PMK and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.
“Mayfair Witches” has been given an eight-episode first season order, with AMC planning to launch the show on its linear channel and streamer AMC Plus later in 2022.
Esta Spalding and Michelle Ashford serve as writers and executive producers on the series, with Spalding also serving as showrunner. AMC Studios, where Spalding is currently under an overall deal, will produce.
Variety exclusively reported in 2020 that AMC had acquired the rights to Rice’s book series “The Vampire Chronicles” and “The Lives of the Mayfair Witches,” comprising 18 titles in total. Mark Johnson, who also has an overall deal with AMC Studios, is overseeing the development of the books into a streaming and television universe. Anne Rice and her son Christopher serve as executive producers on all series and films developed under the deal, though Anne passed away in December 2021.
“Mayfair Witches” is one of two series based on Rice’s work currently in the works at AMC, with a series version of “Interview with the Vampire” starring Sam Reid and Jacob Anderson currently in production.

This is irony at its finest. I was scrolling through Facebook and I see a post from Seth that says “ Somehow I was asked to contribute to the starry feature…” Let’s begin with the first part. “Somehow”? These things don’t just fall from the sky. Your tiny little publicist was just doing his job. And yes there were a few stars out of the 30 but it was more like who the fuck is who list, which explains how he got there.
And then the absolutely most absurd part for anyone who lives in New York is when he says this “The culture I belong to has less to do with sex than with sensibility. I go through my day talking to friends about arts and culture: …. Being gay is about so much more than sexual preference. It's about taste…..we mostly just sit around worrying about democracy and quoting The Golden Girls.” I can’t even determine where to start. I don’t even think he wrote this it sounds nothing like him. And his day-to-day life is all about sex. He is this gay cliché. You can’t find me six people between Manhattan and Fire Island who have not had sex with Seth Sikes. (Of course he’ll never remember because he has the most conveniently selective memory of any person I’ve ever known. he’s capable of remembering things that get him out of trouble never remembering anything that gets him into trouble) And all the times I’ve been around him arts and culture where never topics of conversation. Where he was going to find his Molly and enough dicks to suck through the night, that’s what he talked about. And the most absurd hysterical old lie is that he never watched the Golden Girls. He always said he had seen it just a few times just enough to have an idea of what it was about. All in all the article was a great representation of the Seth Sikes we all know, He’s all l pretense presentation and show, no substance or authenticity. She’s definitely swimming in the kid’s pool.
And the way he pretends to be humble is nauseating. Bl
And his lack self-awareness and how he’s actually perceived is mind-boggling and embarrassing.
And this is not a post to slut shame him. I say be the biggest slut you want to be. Although you can fill every orifice with cock and it will not fill the void inside of you. But I also feel like if he’s not capable of writing his own interview answers and writing them honestly he should at least have somebody do it for him who , Someone who knows him.
It would be amazing if he had the confidence to answer a question like this with total honesty rather than keep long lllllll thing a secret from any community who already knows the truth
I will say… No I’m not gonna add anything positive because who the fuck cares?

The world's oldest person's key to a long life is simple: cut out toxic people.
Guinness World Records confirmed María Branyas Morera, 115, as the world's oldest person on January 19.
Born in San Francisco, Morera moved to Spain when she was eight. She lived through both World Wars and the 1918 flu pandemic before retiring in a nursing home 22 years ago.
Morera attributes her longevity to "order, tranquility, good connection with family and friends, contact with nature, emotional stability, no worries, no regrets, lots of positivity, and staying away from toxic people," according to the Guinness World Records' website. She sometimes posts words of wisdom on her Twitter account, managed in part by her daughter.
"I think longevity is also about being lucky," Morera said, according to Guinness World Records. "Luck and good genetics."
Though research has consistently showed maintaining social relationships are an important part of living a long life, keeping toxic people around may do more harm than good.
"One of the biggest indicators that your relationship is negatively affecting your emotional health, is that it is impacting an area of your life [such as] work, friendships, family, health, finances, spirituality, or downtime," Carolyn McNulty, a licensed mental health counselor, previously told Insider.
A study from 2020, which interviewed more than 3,000 middle-aged and elderly people, found constant criticism from one's partner had the most significant impact on one's quality of health and mortality.
Researchers said their findings suggest "relationship quality" had a bigger impact on a person's mortality risk compared to whether or not they had a partner — suggesting that being on your own might be healthier than keeping an overcritical spouse.
Other studies have linked toxic relationships to depression and high blood pressure, and licensed therapist Shannon Thomas previously told Insider her clients in abusive relationships typically come in with digestive issues and memory problems.

Austin Butler’s Oscar-nominated turn as Elvis Presley in “Elvis” has earned raves, as well as some raised eyebrows among fans who think he is still speaking in the same voice he used in the movie to portray the music icon. The film’s director, Baz Luhrmann, says that’s not a total surprise.
“There has been no, in my experience, actual acting journey like the one that Austin went on,” Luhrmann told The Hollywood Reporter.
Luhrmann said making the movie was a lengthy process for Butler and that it wound up altering him.
“I think that you’ve got to understand just how deep the journey has been for him,” he said. “It’s a role of a lifetime that he gave his life to, he really gave it all for such a long time.
“And actually the voice — I mean, people’s voices do change. I’ve never known him actually not to speak in the way (he did) in that time. When he first came in, he already had quite a deep tone of voice. Surely he had to inhabit another character completely. But it’s just a measure of how much physical change — I mean, his body changed, physically, just from training to do all that.”
Butler became so ingrained in playing Presley and nailing down his signature Southern accent that Luhrmann mistakenly thought he, too, was from that region.
“I’ll tell you a funny story: When he came in, it was about six weeks later that I said to someone, ‘What part of the South is Austin actually from?’” Luhrmann recalled.
“And they said, ‘Oh, no, he’s from Anaheim.’ He was already obsessively practicing changing the muscles in his mouth. To produce a sound that was the Elvis voice, really.”
“Elvis” has been nominated for eight Academy Awards. In addition to Butler’s best actor nod, the film is up for best picture.
Butler’s voice coach in the movie, Irene Bartlett, has said that his voice may never go back to what it was.
“I feel sorry people are saying that, you know, it’s still acting (but) he’s actually taken (the voice) on board,” she told Australia’s ABC Gold Coast. “I don’t know how long that will last, or if it’s going to be there forever.”
Butler, who won a best actor trophy at the Golden Globe Awards, delivered his acceptance speech with a drawl that many people felt resembled Presley’s. He says he is acutely aware of the talk that he still sounds like the legendary singer.
“I don’t think about it. I don’t think I sound like him still, but I guess I must because I hear it a lot,” he told reporters at the Golden Globes after his win.
“You know, I often liken it to when somebody lives in another country for a long time. I had three years where (the role) was my only focus in life, so I’m sure there are just pieces of my DNA that will always be linked in that way.”

Alan Cumming is no longer an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
The Scottish actor marked his 58th birthday on Friday by sharing a message on Instagram announcing "something I recently did for myself."
"I returned my OBE," he wrote, referring to the British award given to him in 2009 by the late Queen Elizabeth II as part of her birthday honors list. Cumming was honored for his work as an actor as well as his campaigning for LGBTQ+ rights.
"The Queen's death and the ensuing conversations about the role of monarchy and especially the way the British Empire profited at the expense (and death) of indigenous peoples across the world really opened my eyes," The Traitors host wrote. "Also, thankfully, times and laws in the US have changed, and the great good the award brought to the LGBTQ+ cause back in 2009 is now less potent than the misgivings I have being associated with the toxicity of empire (OBE stands for Officer of the British Empire)."
He continued, "So I returned my award, explained my reasons and reiterated my great gratitude for being given it in the first place. I'm now back to being plain old Alan Cumming again. Happy birthday to me!"
Cumming received his honor during an investiture ceremony, where a member of the royal family distributes medals in recognition of exemplary service to the U.K. recognized on the monarch's birthday and New Year's honors lists, from Princess Anne at Buckingham Palace.
As the actor noted in his Instagram post, he said at the time, "I am really shocked and delighted to receive this honour. I am especially happy to be honoured for my activism as much as for my work. The fight for equality for the LGBT community in the US is something I am very passionate about, and I see this honour as encouragement to go on fighting for what I believe is right and for what I take for granted as a UK citizen. Thank you to the Queen and those who make up her Birthday honours list for bringing attention to the inaction of the US government on this issue. It makes me very proud to be British, and galvanised as an American."
Cumming is not the first to hand back or turn down an award from the British royal family. He joins a group that includes David Bowie (who turned down two awards: a Commander of the British Empire in 2000 and a knighthood in 2003), film director Danny Boyle (who rejected a knighthood in 2013) and The Chronicles of Narnia author C.S. Lewis (who declined a CBE he was to have been awarded in 1952).
All four of The Beatles were all made Members of the British Empire (MBE) in 1965, but John Lennon returned his honor four years later.
"I am returning my MBE as a protest against Britain's involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam and against Cold Turkey slipping down the charts," he wrote in a letter.
After receiving a Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2009 for services to drama, Welsh actor Michael Sheen quietly handed back the award in 2017 after looking into the history of the relationship between England and Wales for a lecture. "By the time I had finished writing that lecture...I remember sitting there going, 'Well, I have a choice — I either don't give this lecture and hold on to my OBE, or I give this lecture and I have to give my OBE back,' " Sheen said in a conversation with The Guardian columnist Owen Jones in 2020.

Jay Leno is reportedly recovering from a motorcycle accident last week that left him with several broken bones just months after he sustained serious burns in a fire that broke out in his Los Angeles garage.
Speaking to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the comedian and talk show host revealed that he was knocked off his motorcycle Jan. 17 in an incident that left him with a broken collarbone, two broken ribs and two cracked kneecaps.
“But I’m OK!” Leno, 72, reportedly told the outlet. “I’m OK, I’m working. I’m working this weekend.”
The former “Tonight Show” host said he had been working on a vintage motorcycle and was testing the vehicle out when he noticed the smell of leaking gas.
“So I turned down a side street and cut through a parking lot, and unbeknownst to me, some guy had a wire strung across the parking lot but with no flag hanging from it,” Leno told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “So, you know, I didn’t see it until it was too late. It just clothesline, me and, boom, knocked me off the bike."
“The bike kept going, and you know how that works out," he said.
Representatives for Leno did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The comedian reportedly said he hadn't discussed the motorcycle accident publicly yet due to the overwhelming coverage of his recovery from his burns sustained in November.
Leno suffered serious burns to his hands and chest and third-degree burns to his face after his vintage car erupted in flames Nov. 12 in his Los Angeles garage.
In an exclusive interview on NBC’s “TODAY” show, Leno told Hoda Kotb that he had been working on his vintage 1907 White Motor Co. steam-powered car with a friend when he noticed that the vehicle’s fuel line was clogged.
Leno said he had gone underneath the vehicle to try to fix it. “And I said, ‘Blow some air through the line,’” he recalled. “Then suddenly, boom, I got a face full of gas. And then the pilot light jumped, and my face caught on fire.
“My friend pulled me out and jumped on top of me and kind of smothered the fire,” Leno said.
The comedian was taken by ambulance to a hospital and then sent to the Grossman Burn Center in Los Angeles, where he received hyperbaric treatment, an oxygen therapy that “can accelerate burn wound healing,” according to the facility's website.
Despite the severity of his injuries, Leno returned to doing stand-up just weeks after the incident. And even after sustaining further injuries this month, the comedian appears undeterred, as he prepares for a venue debut at Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas for a show billed for March 31.

New spokesperson Maya Rudolph revealed the switch in an announcement video that premiered online Thursday.

Don't try looking for M&M's at the candy counter: starting today, you're shopping for Ma&Ya's. Days after retiring its popular — and unexpectedly divisive — "spokescandies," the world-famous candy brand has also retired its world-famous name. New spokesperson Maya Rudolph revealed the switch in an announcement video that premiered online Thursday.
"Since we all love M&M's — and let's face it, me — it only makes sense that I am renaming America's favorite chocolate candies 'Ma&Ya's,'" the Saturday Night Live stalwart says in the 15-second spot. Rudolph goes on to reveal the personal reason for that particular change: "It's a play on my name." (Watch the ad above.)
That's not the only change that Rudolph has instituted since Red, Yellow, Purple and the rest of the animated spokescandies got kicked to the curb. Each individual Ma&Ya will feature her face in place of the traditional "M" that defined the M&M's era.
"I love M&M's and you and I love me," Rudolph said in another recent online ad. "That's why I'm happy to announce that soon America's favorite chocolate candy will have a picture of yours truly painted right on them."
Life moves pretty fast in the candy world: Rudolph was only announced as the new M&M's spokesperson on Monday, a change that followed conservative media-led complaints about the updated designs of the diverse spokescandies cast. Fox News host Tucker Carlson was particularly unnerved by the brand's "fresh, modern take" on the characters, seemingly complaining that female candies — Purple, Green and Brown — lacked sex appeal.
Although social media critics blamed Carlson for M&M's casting switch, a spokesperson for the brand told Yahoo Entertainment that the Rudolph-led campaign had been in the works for some time. "It isn't a reaction to but rather is in support of our M&M's brand, which we will always continue to evolve to bring people together through the power of fun."
The spokesperson also confirms that this week's announcements signal the kick-off for M&M's Super Bowl campaign — something that had been widely suspected on Twitter. That means viewers can expect to see a Rudolph-led TV spot among the many other star-studded ads set to play during Fox's telecast of Super Bowl LVII on Feb. 12.
Meanwhile, the supposedly retired spokescandies are keeping busy in other venues. Orange dropped a Spotify playlist, while Yellow is taking to Instagram to try and become the new face of Snickers. And expect to see more unexpected candy-related cameos as the Super Bowl approaches. "The original colorful cast of M&M's spokescandies are, at present, pursuing personal passions," the M&M spokesperson says. "Check out what the M&M's spokescandies are up to over the next few weeks before, during and after Super Bowl LVII."
As further evidence that Ma&Ya's will have a short shelf life, the brand is directing fans to its official site to purchase limited-run supplies ahead of the Super Bowl. Based on the Twitter reaction, it sounds like there will be some takers, although not everyone is in on the joke.

Our march towards 2025 continues...
As stated previously, Ukrainians are carving their own legendary status. Warriors unwilling to give up their freedom. I pointed 2027 as the year they recovered from this war. Don't worry, they'll make many recoveries in between. They are not here to waste any time.
By 2035 they will be the most "Americanized" Eastern European country. Part of the reason Russia will make a left turn in the 30's and 40s. The timeline of the Soviet Era comes to an end when Ukraine recovers.
It almost comes across as if Putin is already ousted. I go into his energy and he tells me he is already out. When I asked him why he said that when he clearly remains in power, he said "am I really in power?"
I still feel like Russia has one more little stunt to pull before they retreat. Ukraine just needs to make it through February. I don't know if Putin lasts 3-4 months or if he'll be in power when Russia decides to head back home with their tails between their legs. Clearly, he is no longer calling the shots by himself, he probably never did throughout this ordeal. So the question is, who is it then, someone clearly has kompromat on Putin himself. I said it before, Putin feels like a man that has a fetish for youth, youthful men. I have said before there is "material" out there that shows him doing who knows what unspeakable thing. When historians look back into life, they'll find out that he was abused as a child, exploited, and as a result he had certain predilections. Ironic that the master of Kompromat also had others hold Kompromat on him.
Remember what I said about gay rights in 2027 in Russia and Eastern Europe? Gay rights restart because of a watershed moment that will take place. I don't know if they have a stonewall moment of their own but it just takes off... in part because the War in Ukraine has brought American influence into their door step. You know America is going to be snooping around Eastern Europe once the Ukraine conflict comes to an end and Ukraine starts to rebuild. Listen, the US is going to take a lot of the credit, not always to the liking of Ukrainians who fought in the frontlines, the US will still PR spin this shit like nobody's business.
Listen, nobody PRs like the American government. We'll go in there, reshape the region to our best interest, which in part is also beneficial to Eastern Europe as well. Gay rights will flourish because of it. It's a win win for the gays in that part of the world. Not everyone will like it of course, but that's where the energy will go.
The US will clearly have more military bases in Europe because of Ukraine. The American military industry is in no danger of falling out of favor, and the push into Latin America will start as well.

Could someone please explain Basic Instinct to me? I watched it on Amazon Prime a few days ago, and I don't get it. The sex scenes are so cheesy and not at all realistic. Michael Douglas is a nothing burger as usual. And the whole point of the movie is a trio of crazy lesbians who are all beautiful and obsessed with the Michael Douglas character? Really? This movie is laughable, cheese, totally unconvincing. Also, they wasted Bill Cable (literally) in the first scene.
Why was this movie such a hit and considered so edgy and iconic?

So I called in sick yesterday and found a Freevee "channel" that plays Bob Barker era Price Is Right episodes 24 hours a day. Man, I felt like a little kid again, all curled up on the couch with a fuzzy blanket and enjoying people win double showcases, ugly ass cars (w/ AM radios!!) and even more atrocious living room "groups." I never noticed just how snarky and mean-spirited Bob Barker was. I knew he could be over the top when he was reacting to obnoxious contestants but he took that schtick too far when he called some dude a "sissy" for not getting the Showcase Showdown wheel all the way around. He seemed genuinely disgusted and kept commenting on his lack of manliness. I was shocked. You could hear even some people in the audience audibly gasp when he said that. Anyone remember seeing this? He called a contestant a SISSY. I wish I could find the clip.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp declared a state of emergency Thursday in response to ongoing protests in downtown Atlanta.
Kemp ordered the state's defense department to mobilize up to 1,000 state National Guard troops to be called up to active duty "as necessary."
Authorities arrested six people Saturday when demonstrations over a proposed training ground for the Atlanta Police Department, which started peacefully, involved shooting fireworks, smashing windows, and igniting a police cruiser once protestors reached downtown.
The group behind the protests, called 'Stop Cop City,' has demonstrated against the training facility for months and was particularly moved last week by the death of a protestor when police raided a campground occupied by demonstrators.

The Virginia teacher who was shot by her 6-year-old student texted a loved one before she was wounded that the boy was armed and that school officials were failing to act, according to a source close to the situation.
The source on Tuesday said Abigail Zwerner sent the text about an hour before she was shot on Jan. 6, saying that the student said he had a gun in his backpack and administrators at Richneck Elementary School in Newport News weren’t helping.
The text “showed her frustration,” said the source, who only disclosed details of the single text message to NBC News and not the messages that came before or after it. “She was frustrated because she was trying to get help with this child, for this child, and then when she needed help, no one was coming.”
When asked about Zwerner’s text message and previous safety concerns from teachers and staff, Newport News Public Schools spokesperson Michelle Price said, “Anything that has been reported to our school leadership team in regards to concerns at Richneck from teachers and staff members is part of the investigation. It’s being thoroughly investigated.”
On Wednesday morning, Zwerner’s attorney Diane Toscano held a news conference and said three teachers went to the school administration about the boy’s behavior on Jan. 6 and that he was believed to have had a gun on campus.
Zwerner first went to a school administrator between 11:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. and said the student threatened to beat up a classmate, Toscano said. A second teacher went to a school administrator at 12:30 p.m. and told the administrator the teacher took it upon herself to search the 6-year-old boy’s backpack.
“The administrator downplayed the report from the teacher and the possibility of a gun,” Toscano said.
A third teacher told an administrator shortly before 1 p.m., the boy showed a student the gun at recess and “threatened to shoot him if he told anybody,” Toscano said.
A fourth employee asked an administrator for permission to search the boy and was denied, Toscano said.
The administrator told the employee, to “wait the situation out because the school day was almost over,” Toscano said.
Toscano said the “administration could not be bothered” and the tragedy was “entirely preventable” if the administration “had taken action when they had knowledge of imminent danger. But instead, they failed to act and Abby was shot.”
Toscano said she plans to bring forth a lawsuit on Zwerner’s behalf.
Prior to the news conference, the law firm representing the Zwerner family said it could not confirm the text and did not respond to requests for comment from the family.
The news of the direct warning from Zwerner comes after the school system’s superintendent, George Parker III, said at a virtual town hall this month that the boy had come to school late and that his book bag was inspected upon his arrival at the office to sign in, according to parents who watched the meeting.
“At least one administrator was notified of a possible weapon,” Parker said in a video reviewed by NBC News.
A Newport News police spokeswoman said authorities also determined through their investigation that “a school employee was notified of a possible firearm at Richneck Elementary before the shooting occurred,” adding, “The Newport News Police Department was not notified of this information prior to the incident.”
Further details weren’t made available about who conducted the search, why the gun wasn’t found and whether the child’s clothing was physically examined.
Zwerner, 25, was hailed as a hero by police who said after she was intentionally shot and seriously wounded in her hand and chest, she still managed to safely escort about 20 students out of her first-grade class at Richneck. She was released from the hospital last week.
“I believe she did save lives, because I don’t know what else might have happened if those kids would have stayed in that room,” Newport News Police Chief Steve Drew said during a news conference earlier this month.
No charges connected to the case have been publicly announced.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner could see a price hike in their already high-priced rental in Miami Beach.
Their six-bedroom, eight-bathroom oceanfront unit is currently estimated at $47,000 per month. But with a new landlord — thanks to the unit just changing hands, according to the Wall Street Journal — there’s a chance their rent could go even higher.
Located in Arte, a newly built 16-unit condominium in Surfside, the development has already sold out.
Spanning 6,975 square feet, the unit first listed for sale in March 2021 for $17 million. It has since glided on and off the market.
In October, it last listed for $18.8 million. The new buyer ended up paying $17 million for the property — $1.8 million less than its last ask.
“ARTE Surfside is a piece of real estate that a lot of buyers looked at as a piece of art for their collection of homes,” Miltiadis Kastanis, of Douglas Elliman, said in a statement. “The architecture, interior design, level of finish and dedication to service have made ARTE stand out to a lot of buyers and that helped drive the pricing threshold.”
“These residences have become of the most demanded in Miami and after the successful sell out, I continue to get calls from the most affluent buyers and their agents around the world inquiring if a homeowner would consider selling,” Kastanis adds.
Trump, 41, Kushner, 42, rented the residence shortly after they said goodbye to the White House in January 2021.
The new owner’s real estate agent, Ohad Fisherman of Societe Real Estate, told the Journal the client is expected to take over their lease, which is expected to expire in March.
It’s unclear if the couple plans on renewing.
The unit features two Gaggenau and Poliform gourmet kitchens with gas cooking, two family rooms, two deep terraces cladded in ipe and a two-car temperature-controlled garage.

The other day I caught myself having a surprised reaction when I found out this 28 year old straight white guy I met through a mutual friend was a social democrat and hated Joe Rogan. I've been wondering why I had such a reaction, because ten years ago, I wouldn't have presumed a college educated young white guy from a blue state to be more likely conservative than liberal. Nowadays, right leaning is usually the safe bet.
That's the case in both America and Europe. Everyone in urban centers seemed progressive when gay rights was the biggest wedge issue of the day. Now that the political/cultural landscape has become decidedly more complicated, everyone's looking out for themselves.

I asked: "Did Janet Jackson bankrupt the Iowa State Fair? "
ChatGBT: I couldn't find any information or news articles about Janet Jackson bankrupting the Iowa State Fair. It is unlikely that a single performance or event would cause a state fair to go bankrupt, as fairs usually generate revenue from a variety of sources such as ticket sales, vendor fees, and sponsorships. It's important to note that Janet Jackson may have performed at the Iowa State Fair but I couldn't find any evidence to confirm that. I suggest you to check with the Iowa State Fair Officials or other sources to verify the information.
Result - inconclusive. And it took a monent for the AI to answer it.

Yesterday, the 2023 Oscar nominations were announced, and red carpet outfit predictions quickly followed. It's fun to consider what the nominees will wear, but maybe even more fun to think about how those who were snubbed could make a dramatic entrance. Surely they're all enlightened souls who aren't thinking about anything as petty as a revenge dress—but what if they are? A suggestion: Consider turning heads in the phenomenal Stéphane Rolland gold dress that debuted on the couture runway yesterday in Paris.
It was the finale look, appearing like liquid gold frozen mid-pour, gushing out from the model's shoulders and creating a glistening cloqué lamé tent to shield her from the mortals in the front row. A teardrop cut was carved out at the center for her face and a sliver of torso, reminding everyone she was ethereal but still earthly. Gold bangles twisted around her arms like wire. She was the heavenly sculpture of a god come to life. The Oscar statuette could, quite frankly, never, ever.
This particular look was inspired by Brazil's patron saint, Nossa Senhora da Conceição Aparecida, whose original image is enshrined in the central high altar in Aparecida, Brazil. In the show notes, Rolland wrote that the look was meant to represent the conquistadors’ gold bursting in the rising sun's light. He wanted to represent spiritual women, “dressed from the Bahia churches’ baroque.” And it appears that perhaps Rolland did have his mind on the Oscars after all, since he said that the entire collection was inspired by Marcel Camus's Oscar-winning Orfeu Negro, a 1960 adaptation of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, set in a favela in Rio de Janeiro during Carnaval.
While Schiaparelli's lion head dress divided the internet after setting it on fire, Rolland's gold gown appeared the very next day and seemed to unify every online person around the idea that the look was divine. It was a representation of what couture should be, the type of ensemble with an unfathomable beauty you couldn't have pictured in your wildest imagination but when you see it, you're so overcome all you can say is “whoa.”
There were plenty of other Stéphane Rolland looks from the collection that are worthy of a “whoa.” Like a long brown jersey crepe dress, with draping reminiscent of the drooping petals of a dying flower held together by lapis at the neck. Or a hooded golden lamé crepe dress with amethysts falling like a lei at the chest. And we can only hope to see any of them at the Oscars, ideally for revenge (Viola Davis, are you reading?)—but we'll gladly take them for victory dressing, too.

Jay Leno's 30 year run with NBC has come to an end, as NBCUniversal announced the cancellation of his CNBC reality show "Jay Leno’s Garage". The series premiered in 2015.
Since 1992, Leno has been on at least one of the NBC channels with a television show. It started back in 1992, when he took over hosting duties of 'The Tonight Show' when Johnny Carson retired after 30 years. Leno left the show in 2009, handing the microphone to Conan O'Brien, while Leno did a 10 pm talk show. Within months, Leno was back to hosting The Tonight Show, and finally left in 2014. Months after he left, he started 'Jay Leno's Garage' on NBC.com, which moved to CNBC the following year. The show aired it final season this past fall.

The 'Drag Race' judge opened up about the pressure Boss was under following 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' scandal.
Todrick Hall is opening up about his late friend Stephen 'tWitch' Boss' in the wake of his death.
The performer recently spoke with Page Six about the pressure the DJ was feeling in the time leading up to his death by suicide last month, which Hall says stemmed from the scandal surrounding The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where Boss worked, in recent years.
If you need a refresher, in 2020, DeGeneres was accused of running a racist, sexist and toxic environment on her set. The allegations were startling, and they led to an intense wave of criticism, some of which was directed at Boss, who stood by the host as the internet attacked her and the show.
"People were looking at him like, ‘Why are you still supporting this woman,’” he told the publication, “and I think he was under a lot of pressure.” He went on to speculate that the backlash may have played a part in the struggles Boss had in the months leading up to his death.
“I don’t know what was going on in his life that may [have led] him to make that decision but I do understand," Hall continued, sympathizing with the pressure that comes when the whole world is watching—and criticizing. "Right now when I get online some days like right now, if I was in the wrong position of where this abuse would keep happening for years and years and years, there’s only so much a human being can take.”
Hall remembers Boss as someone that was always supportive, kind, and down to earth.

Now in it's seventeenth season and weakening in the ratings, inside sources say 'The Rachel Ray Show' is on the chopping block and this will be the last season. However, officials for the show say they haven't heard anything from CBS Media Ventures (producers of the show), and probably won't hear a decision until March at the earliest. To change things up a bit for viewers, Rachel Ray kicked off Season 17 from her new home she built in Italy.
In the meantime, Sherri Shepherd's new show "Sherri" (which replaced Wendy Williams' show "Wendy") has been renewed for two more seasons - through the 2024-25 season. Her competition, "The Jennifer Hudson Show" hosted by EGOT winner 'JHud' has also been renewed for a second season. Both freshman shows have surpassed expecations in the ratings. (JHud has replaced Ellen DeGeneres in most markets)

Anne Heche opens up in her new book (written before she died) that being gay is a CHOICE
"I disagreed that being gay was not a choice. After all, I think choice is power. I had chosen to fall in love with a woman, and I hadn't been with the same sex before," she writes.
Bottom line? Love is a choice – gay or straight.

Out of boredom, I watched a video about high value men. The comments were very sexist and spoke about women being worthless once they're past their sell by date, and that no "high value male" would marry an older woman when he could have a younger, fresh woman.
Who exactly are high value men? Do they not realize that they age too, and will go bald/need viagra?
I read that at 40, a woman can get a rich guy, but only an old rich guy--like Al Pacino's age. No rich man her own age will want her. That's crazy to me. There's a huge difference between 40 and 80. Just because somebody's early middle aged, it doesn't put them in the same category as a geriatric nursing home man.

I’m sure we’ve had a similar thread but maybe we have new DLers with fresh songs to share. I love learning the histories behind songs, whether old or new.
Mine is Midnight Special by Leadbelly, which was a big hit for Credence Clearwater Revival. This song resonates with me because I grew up in Sugar Land not far from the prison and the sugar factory and a train filled with sugar cane came through every night at 10 PM; if I heard the signal, I knew I was up too late. It’s not the same time as the Midnight Special, but it looms large in my memories.
John and Alan Lomax, in their book, Best Loved American Folk Songs, told a credible story identifying the Midnight Special as a train from Houston shining its light into a cell in the Sugar Land Prison. They also describe Ledbetter's version as "the Negro jailbird's ballad to match Hard Times Poor Boy. Like so many American folk songs, its hero is not a man but a train." The light of the train is seen as the light of salvation, the train which could take them away from the prison walls. It is highly reminiscent of the imagery of such gospel songs as "Let the Light from Your Lighthouse Shine on Me". Carl Sandburg had a different view. He believed the subject of the song would rather be run over by a train than spend more time in jail.
If you ever go to Houston,/ Boys, you better walk right,/ And you better not squabble/ And you better not fight./ Benson Crocker will arrest you,/ Jimmy Boone will take you down./ You can bet your bottom dollar/ That you're Sugarland bound./

Joe Biden finds himself trailing Pete Buttigieg in the latest New Hampshire poll where he is tied with Sen. Elizabeth Warren among Democrats – in a state that gave his successful 2020 campaign a rocky start.
Biden's overall popularity is also narrowly under water among Democrats in the state, where some party leaders have warned he could be vulnerable to an internecine challenge due to his low popularity.
Buttigieg led likely Democrats with 23 per cent in the new University of New Hampshire Granite State Poll.
Biden, who came in fifth in New Hampshire in 2020, trails with 18 per cent, tied with the liberal Warren, who has been a supporter of his agenda in the Senate.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who visited the White House this week, is at 15 per cent, with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez at 6 per cent and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar at 5 per cent.
That shows an uptick for Buttigieg, the telegenic Transportation Secretary who has moved his official residence to Michigan. Back in July, they were virtually tied, with Buttigieg at 17 and Biden at 16 per cent.

Britney Spears broke her silence two days after police were called to her house for a welfare check by concerned fans. In a statement on Thursday, the 41-year-old singer pleaded with fans and media to respect her privacy.
"I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded," Spears wrote, saying police responded to "some prank phone calls."
"The police never entered my home and when they came to my gate they quickly realized there was no issue and left immediately," the pop star continued. "This felt like I was being gaslit and bullied once the incident made it to the news and being portrayed once again in a poor and unfair light by the media. During this time in my life, I truly hope the public and my fans who I care so much about can respect my privacy moving forward. All the love, B."
The Ventura County Sheriff's Office went to Spears's home in Thousand Oaks, Calif. on Tuesday night as some fans apparently worried for her safety. Concern among her loyal supporters arose after the "Toxic" singer's Instagram account disappeared. Before deactivating her account, Spears purportedly said in a now-deleted post, "I changed my name to River Red." Some people believed that was a code word for help.

Spears's Instagram has worried some in recent weeks. The social media posts coincided with a TMZ report claiming the entertainer acted erratically at a restaurant. The gossip site posted a video claiming Spears was speaking gibberish and that her husband, Sam Asghari, stormed out. Asghari strongly denied any "manic episode" occurred to TMZ. An employee at the restaurant also apparently told a fan account the report was inaccurate.
Spears was freed from her conservatorship in 2021 after claiming she was suffering conservatorship abuse. The singer's fans were instrumental in orchestrating the #FreeBritney movement which garnered worldwide attention amid her battle against father Jamie Spears.

So after watching the YouTube video below, my curiosity was perked. I haven't been to Vegas in 15 years, so I'm going in April when it is still relatively cool for 5 nights, 4 days.
What I really liked about this video is she did a lot of non-gambling/drinking stuff.
Don't get me wrong. I will drink and whore around with the best of them, but I'm 48 and can only do so much, so I was kind of pleasantly surprised to see there is a fair amount to do that doesn't involve gambling or drinking.
Anyone see "Thunder Down Under" or "Magic Mike"? I don't know that I would be all that into a strip show, but I've never seen a professional male one. Not sure how single men are received. Vegas (from what I remember) can be oddly provincial sometimes.
Any fun (non-gambling) thing you did) that was in town? I don't mind gambling, but it pretty easy to lose $200 in 30 minutes at a $5 blackjack table, so I don't want to spend a lot of time doing it.
I know the gay "scene" is fairly dead.

There's a thread over at r/Fauxmoi about Apple Martin and people are sharing their run-ins with her parents and raving about how nice they were. These women are vicious and not known to be generous with kind words so there must be something to it?
This one in particular:
[quote]I can’t give too many details, but I knew G.P. through work and a bit socially. One night I was eating dinner alone at the bar across the street from my apartment, with a copy of the New Yorker, like a sad sack, after a tough personal day. I’d just been shown a gossip column, by a mean spirited coworker, about the man I’d just broken up with, who was dating someone new and I still had strong feelings for him.
[quote]Gwyneth and Chris came in and were so kind. She asked if I was okay and proceeded to tell me all of the times she’d dealt with real emotions, of her own, brought to the press. They both hugged me and were kind, so above and beyond the level of acquaintanceship we’d had to that point.
[quote]I left on a high, cheered up and thought wow they are nice.
[quote]The next morning my assistant told me she had called my office first thing and asked if I would be her date to the Coldplay show at Madison Square Garden that night.
[quote]So I got front row seats & backstage and to go to a small after hours party with everyone. She really didn’t have to do any of this, and in fact had much more to gain by cozying up to my ex. It was such a meaningful gesture and I have such a fondness for her, so I’m truly shocked by the hatred she’s endured. She’s very sheltered, which makes for some tone deaf ideas and some dodgey pseudo science, but she’s a good girl, warm person and I’m pleased her children seem to have turned out to be balanced young people.
[quote]PS Apple looks so much like her mother Blythe Danner, when she was an ingenue and her brother Jake Paltrow has the same eyes. I’m also sure she’s a well adjusted person too.

Located on a quarter-acre in a cul-de-sac, the house has 2384 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a studio/guest house, of course, and a small building built as a children's playhouse. It retains much of its original details and character, and well I think. It's a handsome place that's of its time but has held up without looking dated.
It's not my style, but what a great house to live in for six months or a year. And fill with hippie friends, of course, making tofu stir fry things in the compact central kitchen, milling about smoking too much weed in the outdoor patios, fucking in the old playhouse. Guitars might be involved, but acoustic please. There's not much about the place I dislike at all, and that's rare enough.
The bathrooms are not shown. THe kitchen stove could use a good extraction vent -- and I'm hoping a refigerator stuck away nearby out of camera sight.

A new report from the New York Times details how former Attorney General Bill Barr's efforts to discredit the probe into the Trump campaign's contacts with Russian agents completely floundered.
One particularly telling section of the Times' story involves a trip that Barr made to Italy in order to push officials in that country for evidence that the Russia investigation was part of an elaborate setup designed to damage former President Donald Trump politically.
The Italian officials responded by offering evidence of wrongdoing of a very different sort.
"Italian officials... unexpectedly offered a potentially explosive tip linking Mr. Trump to certain suspected financial crimes," the Times reports. "Mr. Barr and [former special counsel John] Durham decided that the tip was too serious and credible to ignore. But rather than assign it to another prosecutor, Mr. Barr had Mr. Durham investigate the matter himself."

Salman Rushdie, the author, was attacked Friday while onstage in Chautauqua, near Erie in western New York, according to multiple eyewitnesses and accounts on social media.
The attack happened at about 10:45 a.m., shortly after Mr. Rushdie took the stage to deliver a lecture at the Chautauqua Institution, a community in western New York that offers arts and literary programming during the summer.
Mr. Rushdie had just come onstage and was seated in a chair as a staff member introduced him, when the assailant rushed the stage and assaulted the author. It was not immediately clear whether Mr. Rushdie was injured.
Mr. Rushdie spent about 10 years under police protection, living in hiding after Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini of Iran called for his execution in 1989 because his novel “The Satanic Verses” was considered offensive to Islam. The book was banned in India, where he was born, and he was barred from the country for more than a decade.
“There was just one attacker,” said Elisabeth Healey, 75, who was in the audience. “He was dressed in black. He had a loose black garment on. He ran with lightning speed over to him.”

The Fat One has been consistently throwing ethnic slurs at Elaine Chao, Mitch McConnell's wife, on social media. So far, this hasn't made the mainstream news, but evidently, he can't get off the subject. His slurs often connect her race to COVID, the Chinese Red Menace, and Mitch McConnell's age for some reason.
The RNC is shrugging it off, as they always do with Donald's invective, but Chao's response is especially tragic. She sees it and hears it, and her only response is to ask people not to amplify it by reporting on it. Chao spent four years as one of the few silently competent administrators of the Trump Administration, and arguably kept a segment of the federal machine running while he was off golfing and grifting. But Trump turned on her after January 6th, when she resigned in disgust after he sparked a riot. Ever since then, he's been hinting that she's too "Chinese" (actually, she's Taiwanese-American) to be trusted, and she's apparently some sort of scheming mail-order bride for Mitch.
What say ye? Is she right to tell people to ignore Donald's racial slurs? Or is she just trying to distract from the latest racial stain on her chosen party's public face?

The Real Friends of WeHo has turned out to be a real bomb. This week’s Nielsen report shows that, despite MTV’s best efforts to make Real Friends a “destination night” for gay viewers by sandwiching it in between two shows with a loyal fanbase, gay viewers tuning in to watch Drag Race and the Drag Race aftershow Untucked mostly just want to watch … Drag Race and Untucked. After record-high ratings for its 15th-season premiere two weeks ago, Drag Race continued its streak of success this week, accumulating 578,000 viewers, making it the sixth most popular show on cable for the night and giving it a 0.14 share of the night. The Real Friends premiere, meanwhile managed to hold onto just 29 percent of Drag Race’s viewership with 186,000 viewers and a 0.03 share of the night.
Perhaps most damning of all, however, is that more viewers opted to tune back into Untucked than still through the premiere of Real Friends. Untucked managed to accrue 214,000 viewers and a 0.04 share of the night, making it the 60th most-watched cable show of the night, in comparison to Real Friends’s appropriate 69th. When asked for comment, MTV stated that, “MTV was the No. 1 entertainment cable network in prime on Friday, 1/20/23 among young adults.”
Real Friends’ failure to hold onto viewers presumably primed to watch, and possibly even enjoy, the show disproves the old Hollywood saying, “All press is good press.” Not true, it turns out! The show has been, at the very least, loudly controversial among the audience it is intended to reach. In an act of support for Real Friends, MTV made the choice to cut Drag Race down from a 90-minute episode each week (which the show had aired since season ten) to 60 minutes. That has meant seeing less of Ru’s interactions with the queens, a shortened runway, and seeing no judges’ deliberations for the first time in the show’s history — including when the episodes were only 60 minutes for seasons one through nine. In the lead up to Real Friends’ release, disgruntled Drag Race fans who were unhappy with Drag Race’s shortened runtime affecting the pace of the show, bombarded the official Twitter account with since-deleted scat-play videos to show their discontent.
There was also the issue of the Real Friends’ cast, which included Todrick Hall, a content creator and Drag Race judging vet who has been controversial for reportedly not paying workers including dancers and Drag Race legend Manila Luzon.
The night of the premiere, fans were thoroughly united against the show. Across social media, multiple videos of Drag Race viewing-party participants circulated showing hordes of Drag Race fans cheering for the TV to be turned off when Real Friends came on. In response, Hall put out a social-media screed. “Fun Fact: The average annual earning for gay men in the U.S. is $59,618 compared to $57,032 for straight men,” Hall argued. “We are successful, we work hard, and we deserve to see ourselves thriving on TV.” The other gays of Real Friends have yet to publicly respond.
To some, Hall’s scolding recalled the press tour associated with the first studio gay rom-com Bros from earlier in the year, which included writer/star Billy Eichner saying at the MTV VMAs, “I need you all there in theaters on September 30, ’cause we need to show all the homophobes like Clarence Thomas and all the homophobes on the Supreme Court that we want gay love stories and we support LGBTQ people and we are not letting them drag us back into the last century because they are past, and Bros is the future.” When Bros went on to be a box-office bomb, the response was summed up by one Los Angeles Times headline: “The real lesson of Bros: It’s OK to let gay art bomb.” In a market with growing amounts of gay content, the repeated strategy of arguing that watching gay programming is an act of resistance or work toward social justice doesn’t seem to be working. Oh at all.

“I have been a professional actress since I was 19 years old so that makes me an OG Nepo Baby,” Curtis wrote on Instagram. “I’ve never understood, nor will I, what qualities got me hired that day, but since my first two lines on Quincy as a contract player at Universal Studios to this last spectacular creative year some 44 years later, there’s not a day in my professional life that goes by without my being reminded that I am the daughter of movie stars. The current conversation about nepo babies is just designed to try to diminish and denigrate and hurt.”
“For the record, I have navigated 44 years with the advantages my associated and reflected fame brought me, I don’t pretend there aren’t any, that try to tell me that I have no value on my own,” Curtis continued. “It’s curious how we immediately make assumptions and snide remarks that someone related to someone else who is famous in their field for their art, would somehow have no talent whatsoever. I have come to learn that is simply not true. I have suited up and shown up for all different kinds of work with thousands of thousands of people and every day I’ve tried to bring integrity and professionalism and love and community and art to my work.”
“I am not alone,” Curtis concluded. “There are many of us. Dedicated to our craft. Proud of our lineage. Strong in our belief in our right to exist.”
Curtis is one of several actors who have spoken out about the “Nepo baby” backlash following the New York Magazine cover. Lily Allen wrote on Twitter that such views can lead to “childhood trauma,” while Ice Cube’s son, the actor O’Shea Jackson Jr., also railed against the term.
“I had to get my ass up and make it work,” Jackson Jr. tweeted. “From the roles I chose. The work ethic I put into them. My professionalism on sets and promo tours. Even leaving HIS agency and goin to find a team of my own. Once the door was opened it was up to me to walk through it and thrive.”

[quote]Jonathan Majors’s new bodybuilder drama sparks walkouts at Sundance Film Festival
Juror Marlee Matlin was not provided with proper captioning
Jonathan Majors’s new film Magazine Dreams has sparked a walkout from jurors at the Sundance Film Festival after proper captioning was not provided.
The anticipated new film, which stars Majors as an amateur bodybuilder called Killian Maddox, has already been gaining critical buzz.
However, during the premiere on Friday (January 20), jurors Jeremy O. Harris, Eliza Hittman and Marlee Matlin made the collective decision after a failure to provide adequate captioning for deaf and hearing impaired audience members, according to Variety.
The screening provided a captioning device for Matlin, who is deaf, though it reportedly didn’t work, leading to the walkout, while the jury has repeatedly expressed concerns during the festival over the use of open captioning.
However, Variety reports that a number of filmmakers have refused requests over captions on screen, claiming costs and the time needed to make another print, while it is being reported that some buyers have suggested that captions on screen could hurt a film’s asking prices for distribution.
It is being reported that for the Magazine Dreams screening, filmmakers refused to provide captions and instead gave Matlin alternative technology, which didn’t work. The premiere was delayed by 45 minutes, though while sources suggested it was due to a technical issue, it is unclear whether it was specifically related to captioning. The device is reported to have been repaired hours later.

I'm a fucking idiot. I'm only 41 and I think I may have really hurt myself through the stupidest manner -- inactivity. Or, rather, sitting too much. A year ago, my company was acquired and with that acquisition came a promotion for me and an almost overwhelming amount of responsibility. Most days, I've been working up to 12 hours in the office, grabbing dinner, finishing up work for a couple more hours at home and maybe watching TV for an hour before heading to bed. They've finally agreed to let me hire a couple of new folks to give me some more work-life balance.
I was incredibly stupid not to have gotten a sit-stand desk (at work and at home.) I had already started to experience some moderate hip pain (both sides) and lower back pain when sitting for extended periods (it would come and go -- not constant, not acute). I was planning on asking my doctor about it on my next visit. And, then, last week, just bending down to put my socks on, I got a horrible sharp pain in my lower back and instantly stiffened. After a couple of days, went to urgent care, they gave me a couple of shots and prescriptions for anti-inflammatory drugs and a 7-day oral steroids regimen.
After a couple of days on the steroids, the pain was subsiding and I was getting more mobility. But, once the regimen ended the pain flared back worse than before -- always triggered especially by sitting or when moving from sitting to standing and vice versa.
Now, I'm being referred for an MRI and to see an orthopedic pain specialist. My uneducated hunch is that it's not a herniated disc and that it's more related to my terrible choice to remain seated for most of the past year.
So... any advice on what I should ask the orthopedic pain specialist about? Especially if the MRI doesn't show a specific issue like a herniated disc? Don't worry, I WILL be getting professional medical care, but I know some of you have probably been through something like this and I'm happy to take any advice. For now, heat therapy and lying flat on a hard surface can offer temporary relief, but it's always temporary.
I'm hoping this can be 'fixed' through a combination of pain therapy, physical therapy, using a sit-stand desk and regular aerobic exercise (which I have neglected for the past year.) I'm going to hang my head in shame if I end up needing surgery or god forbid, hip replacements at age 41 all because of my poor choices over the past year.
Sorry for the long post. I know I'm being a Mary! None of my friends or colleagues my age or younger have experienced this so I'll take any advice (or scolding) you can offer. Right now, 90% of my day I'm in severe pain and I only really get relief when I finally fall asleep.

The men in the study who had been taking a PDE-5i were found to be 39 percent less likely to die from cardiovascular disease than those who had no record of a prescription. They were also 25 percent less likely to die from any cause, and 13 percent less likely to have a cardiac event, such as a heart attack or stroke.
The men who took a higher cumulative dose of a PDE-5i were better protected against heart disease than the men who took a lower dose.
The study controlled for age, medications, disease history, and smoking status. However, being a simple retrospective look at a population already taking the drug, the study could not show causation.

The Brendan Fraser renaissance (dubbed the Brenaissance) has arrived.
On Tuesday, A24 released a first-look image of the actor in Darren Aronofsky's upcoming drama The Whale. The film is centered on Charlie (Fraser), a reclusive English teacher suffering from a compulsive eating disorder who attempts to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter, Elle (Stranger Things breakout Sadie Sink).
The film is an adaptation of MacArthur-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter's acclaimed 2012 play of the same name and will also star Hong Chau, Samantha Morton, and Ty Simpkins. Aronofsky's first directorial effort since 2017's Mother! starring Jennifer Lawrence, The Whale is set to premiere at the 2022 Venice Film Festival.
"Adapting my play into a screenplay has been a real labor of love for me," Hunter previously told Deadline. "This story is deeply personal, and I'm very thankful it will have the chance to reach a wider audience. I've been a fan of Darren's ever since I saw Requiem for a Dream when I was a college freshman writing my first plays, and I'm so grateful that he's bringing his singular talent and vision to this film."
"It's gonna be like something you haven't seen before," Fraser told Unilad last year of the film. "That's really all I can tell you. The wardrobe and costume was extensive, seamless, cumbersome. This is certainly far removed from anything I've ever done but not to be coy… I do know it's going to make a lasting impression."
Fraser was last seen on Doom Patrol as Cliff Steele (and Cliff's alter-ego Robotman). He also had a supporting role last year in Steven Soderbergh's No Sudden Move, but The Whale will mark the actor's first time back as a leading man since 2013's straight-to-DVD Breakout. And the Brenaissance is just beginning: he also has upcoming roles in Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon and DC's Batgirl as bad guy Garfield Lynns/Firefly.
The Whale does not have a theatrical date yet.

A 1622 square feet conversion of a 1914 Edwardian HQ of a school, the first floor flat consists of a large main room of about 650 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2-baths, and a kitchen. The present decor is likely to draw a strong divide in opinion.
Designed by Arthur Conran Blomfield in 1914 as the boardroom and chairman's office of Christ's Hospital, a separately located boarding school (not a hospital in the modern sense) conceived by Henry VIII as a school for poor children and founded a few years later in1552. The space was recently renovated as apartments after having last served as banking offices of NatWest.
Yes, it's a leasehold, but with a 99-year term remaining. Nothing to fear, not even if you are a teenager looking for some gentleman's clubby forever digs.
Take away every one of the extra cushions on the chairs and sofas (and that ugly and too small arched top virtine between the front windows) in the main room and I love the space, the glowing mahogany, the moody dark walls, the Georgian banking office details. Sure there are things I would change: the chintz sofas, the too many small prints, the chandelier needs an upgrade in size, the candle sconces, but it's a rare case for me of liking a place as it is and not having to look past the teastes of the present owner.
I'd like less living on Great Tower Street, storming with traffic and tourists, and the Square Mile seems an odd place to live though it has some some great early buildings and apartments tucked in among some monstrosities, some mediocre, some Roman ruins, etc., and it's convenient enough, just less residential than some might like.

I was drinking coffee alone at Starbucks recently. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a guy who looked familiar—I couldn’t place him.

While drinking coffee together, we found out that not only did we have a few mutual friends but we had a mutual FB. As we both got up about 30 minutes later, the guy suddenly asks, “I live a block away. Want to come over?”
Until that second, I hadn’t even thought about sex with him. Yes, he was attractive and funny—but in that second, he suddenly became sexy. I said yes, and we went to his place and had an afternoon of fun. I got none of my planned errands done.

A viral video showing an art gallery owner spraying an unhoused woman with a hose has sparked widespread backlash across the internet.
In the 14-second video, a San Francisco man who's been identified by multiple outlets as Collier Gwin is seen blasting a heavy jet of water on a woman sitting on the street. "Hey! Just move! Move!" Gwin could be heard telling the woman after turning the hose off.
The clip was first posted on TikTok by @briochesf, an account for the San Francisco eatery Brioche Bakery & Cafe, although the video does not appear to be on the page anymore. It was reposted earlier this week to Twitter and Reddit, where it went hugely viral, garnering over 16 million views and 40,000 upvotes, respectively.
When confronted on Tuesday, Gwin told SFGATE that he has no second thoughts about his actions and he felt it was justified. "In that situation, the street was being washed and she refused to move. She started screaming profanities, and becoming very belligerent," Gwin told the outlet.
However, on Wednesday, he seemed to change his tune. Gwin told CBS-affiliate KPIX-5 that he was "very, very sorry" and he was "not going to defend" himself this time. He claimed he made an extensive effort to help her out before.
Barbarossa Lounge, a cocktail bar that can be seen in the infamous footage, put out a statement on Tuesday denouncing Gwin's actions. The business said it is "in no way associated with the inhumane actions portrayed in the video."
"We are extremely disappointed in this individual's behavior and in no way support such actions," the statement read.
Gwin has drawn widespread backlash. Many online are even calling for his arrest.
"This is absolutely disgusting," Dean Preston, the supervisor for San Francisco's District 5, tweeted in response. The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area and the ACLU of Northern California told SFGATE they believe Gwin's actions constitute assault.
The San Francisco Police Department told the outlet that both Gwin and the woman on the street "declined further police action" after the incident, but that the SFPD is still investigating the matter. The department did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
Over the last few days, internet users are bombarding the Google and Yelp profiles of Gwin's gallery, Foster Gwin Gallery, with acrimonious 1-star reviews. The website for his business is currently down for "scheduled maintenance," a notice read.

A man in West Virginia was arrested after he allegedly kidnapped and tortured a woman by burning her with a torch.
Philippi Police Department officers were called to a residence after a report of a domestic disturbance on Jan. 24, according to a criminal complaint obtained by WBOY.
Officers found the female victim hiding underneath the porch of the Philippi, West Virginia residence, and told police that the suspect, Sammy Martz, 47, "had hit her in the face."
The female victim told police officers that she "escaped the residence via the rear window and ran from the residence to hide" after Martz "threatened to kill her and had burnt her with a torch on her stomach and her leg," the complaint read, according to the report.
Police officers stated in the complaint that the victim's "eye was swollen shut."
The victim told police while she was being treated by first responders that Martz was inside the residence and was in possession of a firearm, prompting multiple law enforcement agencies to enter the home and take Martz into custody, police told the news outlet.
Martz told law enforcement officers that he "did harm the victim…by striking her and burning her with a torch on at least three occasions," police said.
Investigators interviewed the female victim at a local hospital and said that "she was trying to leave early in the morning," but added that Martz wouldn't let her go for a "4-5 hour period," the complaint read.
Martz used the 4-5 hour period with the female victim to torture "her by striking her all over her body, sitting on her and burning her with a butane torch," officials said in the complaint.
Martz is in custody at Tygart Valley Regional Jail and was given no bond after being charged with kidnapping.

She followed it up with other glamorous roles in films such as Prizzi's Honor, Romancing the Stone, and The War of the Roses. Then illness stopped her in her tracks. Rheumatoid arthritis brought constant pain and immobility.
She recovered with a great comeback playing the seductive role of Mrs. Robinson in the play The Graduate on London's West End. She appeared naked, a brave decision for a woman in her mid 40's. She quipped, "there is a definitive look for women, which is practically fleshless. Women aren't like that, so I thought I'd my little bit for us."
Let's discuss the American actress Kathleen Turner.

Many are riveted by the case of a missing Massachusetts woman, and the media coverage has been criticized by some over what they say is an example of “Missing White Woman Syndrome.”
Ana Walshe went missing New Year’s Day, and her husband has been arrested in connection with the case. He was charged with misleading investigators, who say they discovered potentially incriminating Google searches on his computer, including how to dispose of a woman’s body.
Ana Walshe was last seen Jan. 1, when she was expected to take a rideshare from her home in Cohasset, Massachusetts, to Boston International Airport for a flight to Washington, D.C. She commutes from her home to D.C., where she has a townhouse.
Her husband said she left home at 4 a.m. and friends say she never got on the flight. It’s not clear if she took the rideshare.
Brian Walshe did not report his wife missing until the Wednesday after her disappearance, when her employer notified police she had not shown up for work. During the arraignment, investigators said Ana’s phone last pinged at her home after Brian said she had left.
Critics — including a Boston Globe columnist — are calling the media coverage another instance of missing white woman syndrome, a term coined by the late journalist Gwen Ifill at the 2004 Unity: Journalists of Color conference.
“If there is a missing white woman, we are going to cover that every day,” Ifill said at the time.
Dr. Danielle Slakoff is an assistant professor in the division of criminal justice at Sacramento State University. She specializes in media and crime, feminist criminology and women’s issues and race/ethnicity.
Slakoff has researched how media outlets portray women and girls as victims of crime and how she says race/ethnicity may impact coverage.
She has published work on missing white woman syndrome, and she said Friday on “Dan Abrams Live” that not enough time has elapsed to say whether coverage of the Ana Walshe case falls in that category.
“She was just reported missing Jan. 4 and went missing New Year’s Day, so I think it’s just too soon to say,” Slakoff said.
In her own research of newspaper stories over a four-year period, Slakoff found missing white woman received more initial and repeated coverage than missing Black women.
“The reason that repeated coverage is important is because that means that the consumer who may not be tuning in every day … they’re still likely to see it in passing,” Slakoff said.
Syracuse University professor of communications Carol Liebler defines missing white woman syndrome as “a term that refers to the practice of news media focusing extensively on the missing persons case of white women.”
The Columbia Journalism Review created a tool called “Are You Press Worthy?” that lets people look at their so-called “press value” if they ever went missing and share their findings on social media to advocate for change and expose bias or gaps in coverage.
CJR matched about 3,600 articles from 2021 on missing people by U.S. news outlets with information including race, gender and age from the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System.
According to CJR, someone who is young, white, female and a resident of a big city will receive media coverage that is “vastly out of proportion.”
“Younger missing people do tend to get more attention, regardless of race,” Slakoff said.

A man who dropped over 100 pounds in less than a year now wants to motivate others to change their lives — while striving to reach even higher himself.
Taylor Robertson, 27, of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, tipped the scales at well over 300 pounds in October 2021 when he decided to make changes in his life.
The first thing on his list? He quit drinking.
"I drank for probably six years straight," Robertson told Fox News Digital in a phone interview.
He said he drank about a bottle of liquor a day, to the point where he "started making bad decisions."
With the help of his fiancée, Robertson got sober — and immediately dropped about 30 pounds without exercising.
Inspired by this weight loss, Robertson turned to YouTube for diet and exercise tips.
He found that eating one large meal a day of chicken and rice worked well with his lifestyle, and he also began to work toward exercising more.
In nine months, Robertson lost 130 pounds, he said.
Robertson credited his tendency to take things to the "extreme" for his success in transforming himself — and for how he got so heavy and unfit in the first place. "When I was drinking, I took that to the extreme," he said. "I want to change my life, and I took that to the extreme as well. So I started running."
At the start of his running journey, Robertson said he "couldn't run a quarter-mile without feeling like I was absolutely dead."
Running was "hard as hell," he said — but he decided to push on with it. He now runs 5K races frequently and ultimately hopes to complete the Ironman triathlon.
Throughout his fitness journey, Robertson turned to retired Navy SEAL-turned-runner David Goggins for motivation, listening to his talks and videos "every single day," he said.
Goggins, who was also once 300 pounds, according to his website, changed his own habits to become "the only member of the U.S. Armed Forces to complete SEAL training, Air Force tactical air controller training and the U.S. Army Ranger School, where he graduated as ‘Enlisted Honor Man.'"
Goggins explained in a video on his website, Bigthink.com, that he doesn't believe in popular and trendy mantras of the day, but in incremental growth — and doing hard things one step at a time.
"If you sit there and have that mentality of ‘triple down every day' at what you're good at, you will never grow," he said in the video — instead recommending doing things that are hard.
He also said, "Mental toughness is a lifestyle. It's something that you live every single day of your life." (SEE Goggins during a "Fox & Friends" appearance in the video at the bottom of this article.)
He also said, "When I was growing up I was a lazy kid, and everybody asks, ‘How did you get to where you’re at today?'"
Goggins continued, "It started off by recognizing, honestly, that my bedroom was dirty … I lived a sloppy life."
He began to make "very small increments of change," he noted. "I started making my bed. I started cleaning my room."
Goggins said that over a period of time, "your brain doesn't like it but it starts to realize, ‘This is a new way of thinking.’"
He also said, "You live uncomfortable to gain growth."
Fox News Digital reached out to Goggins for further comment.
This mindset helped Robertson, too, as he continued his own journey to health and self-discipline.
After quitting drinking, Robertson found he had a sudden increase in free time — and he got "kind of bored."
"I was like, ‘Well, maybe I'll go to the gym since I have the time,'" he said. "Drinking had consumed all of my time."
After getting a gym membership, Robertson said he "just kind of became obsessed with it."
Inspired by Goggins, Robertson began making a point to exercise when he did not want to do it.
"Anything that was hard, [Goggins] would do. If he felt like he didn't want to do it, he would do it," said Robertson.
He began keeping a duffel bag of workout clothes in his car so that he could get in a run at any time, regardless of where he was going.
Robertson, a plumber, works for himself — and fits in exercise whenever he can.

Four males were arrested in connection with the rape of LSU student Madison Brooks, which preceded her dying after being hit by a car, according to deputies.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office said Brooks was raped before she was hit and killed by a car on Jan. 15.
Kaivon Deondre Washington, 18, and a 17-year-old unidentified minor were charged with third-degree rape. Everett Lee, 28, and Casen Carver, 18, were charged with principal to third-degree rape, which means they were present but did not participate in the alleged crime.
According to investigators, Carver admitted that he and the other males went to Reggie’s Bar near the LSU campus and drank alcohol. He said Brooks left the bar with them and was "very unstable on her feet, was not able to keep her balance, and was unable to speak clearly without slurring her words," the arrest document states, according to FOX 8.
Carver allegedly told investigators that the 17-year-old and Brooks were "hugging and walking together."
He said Brooks asked for a ride home with them, according to the warrant. He said Washington and the 17-year-old asked Brooks to have sex with them and that she agreed.
Carver told investigators he believed that Brooks was too drunk to understand that she was consenting to sex and he "hated it," the warrant reads. He said they later dropped Brooks off in a neighborhood near the scene where she was hit and killed by a car on Burbank Drive.
Brooks was standing in the dark on Jan. 15 at around 3 a.m. when she was struck by a vehicle. She was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
The driver of the vehicle that hit her showed no signs of being impaired, according to deputies.
However, the attorney representing two of the people charged for the alleged incident claims a video shows no rape occurred.
"She willfully got into the car, said that her rides had left her, and she got in," attorney Ron Haley told FOX 8. "Absolutely not a rape. Listen, this is a tragedy, definitely not a crime."
Investigators said Brooks had a blood-alcohol level of .319g percent, nearly four times the legal limit. However, Haley said she was not too intoxicated to where she could not give consent.
"Can you tell that she was intoxicated? Yes. To the point under the law that you say you’re in a drunken stupor, to the point that you cannot lawfully give consent or answer questions? Absolutely that was not the case," Haley said.
The attorney claims Brooks and the driver were involved in an argument after they drove to several places.
"Based on a disagreement, she got out of the vehicle. She indicated she was getting an Uber," Haley said. "I want the public to know, these young men or really the driver of the vehicle and the young men that were in there did not put her off on the side of the road."
According to arrest documents, the driver believed the girl was too drunk to consent.
Haley believes the video evidence from inside the car will prove his clients are innocent and that bars selling alcohol to underage drinkers are to blame for the incident. Haley intends to hand over the video to investigators and the district attorney’s office.
Brooks was a sophomore at LSU, where she was a member of the Alpha Phi sorority.
"We are grieving the sudden and tragic loss of our sister, Madison Brooks, following the accident that took her life," the sorority wrote on Instagram. "Madison was a sophomore and made a lasting impact on all of us. She was also a hero and was able to donate her heart and kidneys to save others. We send our deepest sympathies to her family and friends during this incredibly difficult time. We respectfully ask for time and space so we may support each other in our healing process."

No symptoms. A series of tests showed blood in my urine and a follow-up cytology test shows “atypical” urothelial cells which are abnormal, but not abnormal enough to be declared cancer.

I just finished watching this absolutely beautiful, poignant film, and I couldn’t help but wonder if any of you watched it. It’s a very quiet, slow movie, so if you are someone who needs fast shots and big things happening, this isn’t for you. Paul Mescal gives such a poignant, subtle, understated but beautiful performance.
It’s about an 11 year old girl who goes on a holiday to Turkey with her 30 year old father, who is turning 31. The film takes place 20 years later, with a now 31 year old Sophie remembering that Holiday she took with her father 20 years earlier, and the last time she saw him (from what I gathered). Sophie lives with her mother, as her father and mother divorced, and she has a very distant relationship with her father, who she wants to feel close to and he pretends to as much as he can but she can tell he’s going through his own personal struggles (financially and personally).
It’s such an interesting film with such a beautiful performance from Paul Mescal. While I doubt he will get nominated, I would love to see him get an Oscar nod for this. He didn’t get in at the Globes but he did the Critics Choice.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Francis told reporters “being homosexual isn’t a crime,” and that laws condemning LGBTQ+ identities are “unjust” and must be opposed by the Catholic Church.
“We are all children of God, and God loves us as we are and for the strength that each of us fights for our dignity,” Francis said. He attributed anti-gay sentiments among bishops to deeply rooted cultural biases, calling for “a process of conversion” for religious leaders to understand why they shouldn’t mistreat LGBTQ+ people.
But before you start singing Gogol Bordello, the Pope’s stance is complicated by his insistence that being gay is still a sin in the eyes of God and the church. “It’s not a crime. Yes, but it’s a sin. Fine, but first let’s distinguish between a sin and a crime,” Francis told interviewers. “It’s also a sin to lack charity with one another.”
James Martin, editor-in-chief of the Jesuit magazine America who has previously written in support of LGBTQ+ dignity, wrote on Twitter that the Pope’s comments were “an immense step forward.”

According to reports, Aaron Taylor-Johnson will be the next James Bond, after the previous 007, Daniel Craig shot his final movie for the franchise last year.
Following the announcement in 2020 that No Time To Die would be Daniel Craig's last dance as the famous protagonist, rumors have been constantly murmured as to who will carry the torch for one of Britain's most famous and iconic movie franchises. With that being said, the rumors have been growing louder recently and the majority of speculation as to who will take over from Craig is pointing in the direction of Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
The 32-year-old British actor is best known for his appearances in movies such as Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, Kick-Ass, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, where he played the role of Pietro, aka Quicksilver.
Celebrity gossip Instagram page, Deuxmoi -- one of Instagram's most popular sources of celebrity news -- speculated the news recently as it stated that an anonymous source told the platform that "Aaron Taylor-Johnson will be the next Bond," and that a "mini-trailer of him doing the famous Bond shot is going to be released in March/April 2023 to announce him as the new actor."
Although this news hasn't confirmed anything for the James Bond franchise, only time will tell as to whether Taylor-Johnson really does take his martini shaken, and not stirred.

Today we warm up with Irish coffee, a drink made with Irish whiskey, hot coffee, heavy or whipped cream, and brown sugar. The drink was created in Ireland during World War II and made its way to America in the 1950s. Usually drank in a stemmed glass, it is now popular around the world.
Foynes Airport in Foynes, Ireland, was one of the biggest airports during World War II. It was a place where flying boats traveling across the Atlantic Ocean docked, and was frequented by passengers from the United States such as Hollywood stars and political figures. In 1943, Brendan O'Regan opened a restaurant in its terminal building and hired Joe Sheridan as the chef. Sheridan invented Irish coffee that year.

TikToker Chris Olsen is using humor — and his platform of nearly 10 million followers — to talk openly about sexual health.
In a recent video post, Olsen, 25, told a hilarious story about going to get a routine STI test, during which he revealed that he’s tested positive for chlamydia three times in the past. (STIs, short for sexually transmitted infections, are transmitted through sexual contact; when left untreated, they can develop into a sexually transmitted disease, or STD, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.)
“So, I’ve had chlamydia three times — end the stigma,” Olsen began the video in a joking tone, referring to the treatable STI that's the most frequently reported bacterial infectious disease in the United States, per the CDC. Then the social media star, who identifies as gay, breezily went on to share that the female nurse who was drawing his blood at the time of his recent visit attempted to try and set him up with her gay son.
“I’m like, 'OK, reel it back, reel it back. What’s his name?'” he said in the video. “Because I know my hacking skills can find this man in a second. As I leave, she tells me his name. When I find this man on Instagram, I found out that he is the ex of one of the men who has ghosted me this past year — and in their story, they’re hanging out.”
The story did have a happy ending, though.
“Anyway, she just called me and I do not have chlamydia, this time, so, little wins!” he said.
Responses to the video have been wide-ranging, with many commenters praising Olsen’s bravery for being open about his STI history without layering it with the stigma, shame and fear that is so often attached to disclosure stories.
Singer-songwriter Jewel even weighed in, writing, “Omg I love you.”
“We love a queen that takes care of themselves!” one another admirer added, referencing Olsen’s message to routinely get tested for STIs.
The truth is that sexually transmitted infections are quite common, with the CDC surmising that "1 in 5" Americans will receive a positive STI diagnosis in their lifetime; other sources, including the Kaiser Family Foundation, put that even higher, estimating that over half of people in the U.S. will have an STI in their lifetime.
Meanwhile, positive cases reached an all-time high for the sixth year in a row in 2019, with more than 2.5 million reported cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea & syphilis reported that year — and half of all new STI cases found in young adults ages 15 to 24, according to the CDC. Though that took a sizable dip during the pandemic due to social distancing, by the end of 2020 (the most recent stats available), cases of STIs like gonorrhea and syphilis continued to surge. Still, many find the topic too taboo to discuss.
It’s why Olsen’s video is so important, says Jenelle Marie Pierce, board president of the STI Project, an organization that aims to de-stigmatize STIs through sex education, and spokesperson for the dating site Positive Singles. She argues that telling personal stories in such an open, accessible way — with humor, if possible — creates a good model for how young people can have complicated conversations about sexual health.
"What I love most about this video is the casual conversation that's taking place between the influencer and the audience, which is none too different than a typical disclosure conversation," Pierce tells Yahoo Life. "In some ways, it's serious, yes, but it can also be fun and affirming. It's a dialogue where information is shared and decisions are made and then, hopefully, fun is had. What's not to like about that, right?"
Oftentimes, conversations around STI disclosure get "wrapped up in a lot of trepidation, fear, ethics, and morality," she notes. And while some of that fear and shame is unavoidable, what people often forget is that disclosure can be a simple conversation among partners — something which Olsen’s candor demonstrates.

Chris Cuomo is speaking out after his ousting from CNN more than a year ago, claiming "I'll never be what I was" in an interview with the "No BS News Hour" podcast last week.
"I am emotionally and psychologically beat up and changed by what I went through," Cuomo told podcast hosts Charlie LeDuff and Karen Dumas, as reported by the New York Post on Saturday. "My show is different because I am different, not that I was in some lefty silo."
Cuomo was fired from CNN in December 2021, after he helped his brother and former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo handle an array of public sexual misconduct accusations that led to the governor's resignation.
The former CNN anchor now hosts a flagship primetime show on the cable network NewsNation, where he's recently landed high profile interviews with subjects like Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West.
Cuomo told LeDuff and Dumas he wasn't given the opportunity to say goodbye to his staff after CNN abruptly fired him, per the Post. But the news anchor still said he views CNN as the "best news organization in the world."
He further asserted that he never influenced news coverage of his brother after accusations of sexual misconduct surfaced, per the Post.
"I never did anything to manipulate media coverage of my brother," he told the podcast hosts.
Cuomo added that the media fallout he experienced after being fired by CNN has changed the way he conducts his new show on NewsNation, the Post reported.
"I'll never be number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on some bulls–t media power list. I'm okay with that," he told LeDuff and Dumas.

First, they would play the victims, as they have shamefully done ever since Alec Baldwin accidentally shot dead cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his movie “Rust.”
Second, they would cynically use their children as a protective PR shield at the same time as they demanded privacy for those same children.
Third, Hilaria would once again adopt that fake Spanish accent she deploys for no apparent reason — she’s not Spanish — other than an apparent weird penchant for cultural-linguistic appropriation.
Hilaria emerged from their New York apartment in an attention-seeking sweatshirt with the word “Empathy” emblazoned across it.
It was also an attention-diverting sweatshirt designed to distract waiting media from seeing her husband, who slipped away unnoticed.
Hilaria then did what she often does and lectured the reporters and photographers about invading her family’s privacy.
I wonder if the Baldwins’ seven children have other questions for her, like, “Mommy, why do you and Daddy keep asking the media to protect our privacy when you two both constantly invade ours on social media to enhance your brands?”
I doubt it, because most of them aren’t old enough to understand just how often, and how cynically, the Baldwins use them as PR tools.
Hilaria’s Instagram account, followed by a million people, is almost exclusively devoted to photos and videos of her children whom she insists she wants the media to leave alone.
imagine using your kids to promote yourself on social media right after your wife orders the media to leave those kids alone?
But then, that’s the Baldwin way, isn’t it?
Hypocrisy and tone-deaf delusion follow them around like a buzzard on a bison’s backside.
From the start of this scandal, they have consistently tried to portray themselves as the real victims of a tragedy that took the life of a beautiful young woman, devastating her own family.

Mike Smith is the young guy in the tight polo shirt with bulging pecs and biceps who is the representative for 'Renewal by Andersen Windows' running 24/7 on MSNBC and CNN (it's an old commercial but they trot it out every year so people will think of new windows for the Spring). I read once that he's a former 'actor in adult films' while others say he starred in gay pron. He's a native of Canada, but last I read living in CA (again, this can be old info). Anyone have any scoop on him ? He's quite sexy...

North Dakota lawmakers have introduced legislation to ban books that contain “sexually explicit” content from public libraries, including a provision that could jail librarians if they don’t comply.
While Republican legislators around the country have introduced similar bills over the past year, most apply only to school libraries. House Bill 1205, however, would ban all public libraries from stocking “sexually explicit” materials in the name of protecting children, meaning that readers of all ages would be banned from accessing LGBTQ+-inclusive texts, which are largely what these bans restrict.
Introduced Tuesday by North Dakota House Representatives Mike Lefor and Vicky Steiner, the bill would redefine “explicit sexual material” to include “deviant sexual intercourse,” “sadomasochistic abuse,” “sexual perversion,” “sexual identity,” and/or “gender identity.” Neither “deviant” nor “perversion” are defined in the bill, a likely intentionally vague wording that could apply to just about anything. The public will be allowed to submit removal requests to libraries regarding books that violate the bill. Libraries must individually develop review processes for these requests, and if found guilty, they would be forced to remove the book within 30 days of receiving the request. Those who are found guilty of stocking such books would be guilty of a Class B misdemeanor, which carries a penalty of up to 30 days in jail, a fine of $1,500, or both.
Lefor cited the graphic novel Let's Talk About It: The Teen's Guide to Sex, Relationships, and Being a Human as one reason why he put the bill forth, according to the Bismarck Tribune. Referencing illustrations of nudity, Lefor stated that he thought the content was “disgusting,” and that public libraries “should put it in a restricted area where (children) need to get permission from their parents to take a book out like this, but they're offering it to junior high school kids ... and when we grew up, we didn't need things like this.”
“This is not a way to raise our kids, and we have to do everything we can to make sure that this doesn't get into the hands of children, especially without their parents' knowledge,” Lefor told the Tribune.
However, Allan Blume, the vice president of North Dakota’s Valley City Barnes County Public Library Board of Directors, defended the book’s educational value. “If I was a 13 or 15 or 17-year-old who had not gotten the education through the school system or through an interested and engaged family,” Blume said in comments reported by Valley News Live, “that book serves a crucial, crucial function.”
The bill comes just days after North Dakota lawmakers introduced a bill that would ban doctors from providing minors with transition-related healthcare, including hormones, surgery, and puberty blockers. The so-called “Help Not Harm” bill would strip doctors who provide such care of their licensing, and would allow patients who have been “harmed” by such care to take retroactive civil action against doctors up to the age of 25.
Both book bans and anti-trans healthcare bills proliferated in 2022. The American Library Association reported in September that 681 attempts to ban or restrict library resources had been filed in the first eight months of 2022, the highest number in decades. Fifteen bills restricting trans healthcare were introduced in 2022, with even more already introduced in state legislative sessions this year.

I despise it. Mostly because there are many options thus too many choices.
I just set a limit this afternoon of 4 hours and as the last minutes were clicking down, bought an iPhone. The SE 2022. I couldn't deal with the bells and whistles of the more expensive models and all the arguments and comparisons.

The National Hockey League backpedaled on a job fair posting after the office of Florida Governor Ron Desantis (R) condemned it as “discriminatory.”
The posting was for an event called the Pathway to Hockey Summit and a LinkedIn post said participants in the February event needed to check off certain diversity boxes.
“Participants must be 18 years of age or older, based in the U.S., and
identify as female, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, Indigenous, LGBTQIA+, and/or a person with a disability. Veterans are also welcome and encouraged to attend,” the description of the event read, according to Fox News.
The LinkedIn posting was taken down shortly after that statement.

Critics, audiences, conspiracy theorists—no one seems to like Blonde. Many people feel Ana degraded herself for this role. I don’t see her getting an Oscar nomination, and I wonder if this will negatively affect her career.

“Evan should have used his acceptance speech to mention the families who are still suffering from Dahmer’s crimes, or to say Hollywood should put an end to telling stories about killers and glorifying them.”
“There’s a lot of sick people around the world, and people winning acting roles from playing killers keeps the obsession going and this makes sick people thrive on the fame,”
“It’s a shame that people can take our tragedy and make money. The victims never saw a cent. We go through these emotions every day,”

NEW YORK (AP) — Across the country, there’s a silent frustration brewing about an age-old practice that many say is getting out of hand: topping.
Some fed-up consumers are posting rants on social media complaining about surprise anal requests at drive-thrus, while others say they’re tired of being asked to spread ‘em for a muffin or a simple cup of coffee at their neighborhood bakery. What’s next, they wonder -- are we going to be bottoming for our doctors and dentists, too?
