Breaking: Anne He He was NOT High During Fatal Crash

No drugs found in system, per the coroner.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My boyfriend HATES my straight guy friends. I need advice?

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

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

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

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

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

When you were a kid were adults assholes?

I can remember a lot of adults who were openly assholes to kids when I was little. I was a kid in the 80s and can remember adults acting like they had a personal vendetta against me and other kids. I had a teacher in grade one who actually used to say I was retarded to anyone who would listen. I remember other kids being bullied by people in their 20s and 30s. It’s messed up looking back as an adult on the way these people acted. I don’t like kids but I’d never treat a kid or even a teenager like that. I feel like half the adults around me were psychos and it’s shocking that none of them faced consequences for their actions. Were you also surrounded by asshole grownups or was I just unlucky?

Nick Carter Sued for Alleged Rape of 17-Year-Old Girl During 2001 Backstreet Boys Tour

Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter is facing a new claim he raped a 17-year-old girl on a bus during the boy band’s Black & Blue worldwide concert tour in 2001.

Accuser Shannon “Shay” Ruth filed a sexual battery lawsuit in Clark County, Nevada, on Thursday claiming Carter picked her out of a line of fans seeking autographs at the Tacoma Dome in Washington that night and invited her to join him on his tour bus when she was an unsuspecting virgin.

Ruth, who says she lives with autism and cerebral palsy, claims Carter, who would have been 21 at the time, fed her a pink drink dubbed “VIP juice” that tasted alcoholic, ordered her to get on her knees and then pulled down his pants and insisted she perform oral sex on him. She alleges he instructed her on how to proceed even though she was crying.

Now 39, Ruth alleges Carter, who faced a similar allegation in the past that was not prosecuted, led her to a bed, “pushed” her down and forcefully removed her pants when she resisted. Carter then allegedly attempted to orally copulate Ruth as she “begged him to stop,” the lawsuit obtained by Rolling Stone states.

“Carter told her to ‘Shh!’ as he laid on top of her and said it would be our ‘special secret,'” the filing continues, alleging that Carter then vaginally penetrated Ruth.

“The last 21 years have been filled with pain, confusion, frustration, shame, and self-harm that are a direct result of Nick Carter raping me,” Ruth said at a press conference with her lawyer Mark Boskovich in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

“Even though I’m autistic and live with cerebral palsy, I believe nothing has affected me more …than what Nick Carter did to me,” Ruth said, struggling to hold back tears.

She claimed Carter turned “nasty and threatening” when she told him she was going to report the incident. “After he raped me, I remember him calling me a ‘retarded bitch’ and grabbing me and leaving bruises on my arm,” she said.

“Carter tried to scare me into silence,” she claimed, saying he told her “he’d turn people against me because he was Nick Carter and had the power to wreck my life.”

“I felt like I had nowhere to turn,” she said. “I truly believed if I told anyone, I would go to jail.”

Representatives for Carter did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Rolling Stone.

“This accusation is categorically false, Nick is focusing on his family and mourning the death of his brother,” an unidentified source close to the singer told TMZ, which first reported the lawsuit.

The lawsuit comes after Melissa Schuman, a former member of teen-pop group Dream, stepped forward in 2017 and accused Carter of sexually assaulting her in 2003, around the time they were shooting the 2004 made-for-TV movie “The Hollow,” when she was 18 years old.

Los Angeles County prosecutors investigated Schuman’s claim and ultimately declined to file a case, saying the allegation was outside the 10-year statute of limitations.

In a blog post that’s no longer active, Schuman said Carter invited her and a friend to his Santa Monica residence for a “casual hangout.” Schuman said she also was a virgin at the time and that Carter allegedly poured shots and then took her to a bathroom where he performed oral sex on her over her protests.

“I told him to stop, but he didn’t. So I turned off the bathroom light so I wouldn’t see anything. He kept turning the light back on because he told me he wanted to look at me,” she wrote.

“I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman’s accusations. Melissa never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual,” Carter said in a statement to Rolling Stone at the time. “This is the first that I am hearing about these accusations, nearly two decades later. It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm.”

DEA agent who helped arrest Viktor Bout: ‘We couldn’t even get two people for the world’s most notorious weapons trafficke

Tom Pasquarello’s phone started buzzing around 7 a.m. on Thursday.

“Did you hear the news?” a friend asked.

“What news?” Pasquarello responded.

The news turned out to be the undoing of one of Pasquarello’s proudest achievements from his tenure as a regional director with the Drug Enforcement Agency. The U.S. had released the notorious Russian arms trafficker who Pasquarello helped take down 14 years ago with an audacious sting operation.

Viktor Bout, the so-called “Merchant of Death” and the inspiration for the 2005 Nicolas Cage film, “Lord of War,” is who Russia received back from the U.S. on Thursday in a prisoner swap for American basketball star Brittney Griner. Bout, 55, was serving a 25-year sentence in an Illinois federal prison on charges of providing weapons to terrorists and conspiring to kill Americans.

To Pasquarello, freeing Bout early was a troubling decision with potential “huge repercussions.” The former DEA agent argues that the U.S. State Department has a responsibility to figure out how to bring Griner and other wrongfully detained Americans home without offering a prisoner exchange or making other major concessions.

“I’m kind of in disbelief that someone with the potential to orchestrate arms deals that can kill Americans anywhere in the world would be traded for a prisoner,” Pasquarello told Yahoo Sports on Thursday. “I think this sends a terrible message that the U.S. will negotiate, that the U.S. will make concessions and that, if an American is held overseas, there’s always the potential that the U.S. will acquiesce to the demands of people like [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and bail them out.”

Pasquarello’s personal connection to Bout may color how he views Thursday’s prisoner swap, but he is hardly alone in his assessment that the Biden administration gave up too much to get Griner home. Other foreign policy experts also wince at the obvious imbalance between Bout’s crimes and Griner’s.

The U.S. alleges Bout smuggled military-grade weapons to rogue leaders and insurgent groups across Africa and beyond, elevating conflicts from machetes and one-shot rifles to grenade launchers and AK-47s. Russia alleges Griner flew into Moscow on Feb. 17 with vape cartridges containing less than one ounce of cannabis oil in her luggage.

Yuval Weber, an expert on Russian military and political strategy, told Yahoo Sports that Bout’s release may “incentivize rogue state and non-state actors to kidnap or imprison on trumped-up charges more Americans.” Weber also expressed concern that Bout might reprise his former role as an operative who exported arms to Russian allies at the Kremlin’s bidding.

“In sports terms,” said Weber, a distinguished fellow at Marine Corps University's Brute Krulak Center for Innovation and Future Warfare, "we just traded a GOAT first-ballot Hall of Famer who still has many years of productivity left for a hometown Division III star."

Exactly how big a threat is Viktor Bout? The answer depends on who you ask. Russian state media calls him a “businessman” and an “entrepreneur.” His former website said he’s a “born salesman with undying love for aviation.” A longtime DEA agent once described him as “one of the most dangerous men on the face of the Earth.”

Bout’s rise to prominence began during the early 1990s when he astutely saw opportunity amid the chaos of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Piles of weapons and ammunition lay discarded in dusty warehouses. Military planes sat abandoned on Soviet runways because there was no money for maintenance or fuel, and no one to fly them.

Relying on military and intelligence connections he had previously made, Bout acquired several Antonov cargo planes known for their heavy airlift capacity and ability to land in treacherous terrain. Those became the starting point for a private fleet of more than 50 Soviet cargo planes and a network of air-freight companies that hauled goods to and from far-flung conflict zones.

How to nip infatuation in the bud?

I recently met a colleague in a professional setting. (Actually, we've known each other casually over email for several months, but finally met in person.)

At least on my end, the attraction was instant and overpowering. Maybe it was mutual, and we really hit it off. However, he is partnered; and besides, I don't want to create professional drama for myself by hooking up with him.

We won't see each other again for several months, but in the meantime, I really need to nip my attraction to him in the bud. Any ideas? I need to be in touch with him about work stuff, and he told me it was a delight to meet me in person and that he's looking forward to seeing me again, and encouraged me to reach out if I need anything.

I know, I know, I'm probably being a MARY!!!!!! and need to just deal with it and keep things professional.

What's the point of a woman having sex?

I'm a woman. I've never given birth, so my vagina isn't loose. However, I don't really feel anything during intercourse. Big penis, small penis, real penis, dildo---it doesn't matter. There's no pleasure from that. I read that this is normal, and most women can't orgasm from intercourse, and only get pleasure from clitoral stimulation.

Anyway, so what's the point of having sex if it doesn't even feel good? Sex is messy and can lead to disease/pregnancy. Women need to take birth control. What's the point of going through all this and risking pregnancy, just to have sex that doesn't even feel good? Is it the only way to "keep" a man? BTW, I know some women do like intercourse.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mountain lion barges into California home, drags dog outside

A woman in Sonoma County, California, shared video showing a mountain lion standing over her dog in her backyard after she says the predator burst into her home and dragged her pup outside by its neck last month.

Rebecca Kracker, of Bennett Valley, told FOX2 KTVU on Tuesday that she went to check on her border collie, Sherman, after she heard him yelping and growling.

To her shock, Kracker said she found a mountain lion inside her home with Sherman’s neck in its jaws.

Video she shared shows the mountain lion standing over Sherman in the backyard after the big cat dragged the dog outside.

"She was bearing her teeth and hissing, and he had passed out from shock," Kracker told the outlet. "I thought he was dead at that point."

Sherman survived the attack, and Kracker said in a Facebook post that her neighbor arrived and scared the mountain lion away after firing a shot at it, missing the animal.

However, the predator returned the following day, according to Kracker, this time to target two of her goats.

Kracker said she notified state wildlife officials, who tracked down the big cat and euthanized the animal.

This means the story is being drastically rewritten. Bailey’s character is supposed to be a 21 year old ingenue having his first sexual experience with a man. Bailey is 34.

Bailey’s character is supposed to be much less attractive than Bomer’s character as well, while these two are both equally attractive.

Post-War "Holiday Affair" 1949

One of the lesser known holiday films, "Holiday Affair" has its own charms. Namely, newcomers Janet Leigh, Robert Mitchum, & Wendell Corey in a post-war triangle. This modest movie has a more natural feel than some of the bigger yuletide-themed classics. Janet's lovely as the war widow & single mom and noir faves Mitchum & Corey are nice guys. Very appealing "Affair," my look here:

I was stalked around a store today by rude staff members. Should I write a bad review or forget about it?

This store has nice stuff, but the atmosphere in there is incredibly uncomfortable. The staff have staring problems and literally follow around customers to make sure they’re not shoplifting. Browsing is awkward when there’s a staff member stalking you from aisle to aisle. I went in there today to buy a wall decoration, and a staff member immediately trailed after me and stood near a shelf at the end of the aisle, when I moved to a different aisle, he followed.

It’s not just me they stare at—they’re five of them in this small store and they follow and watch pretty much anyone who enters, regardless of age, behaviour, or how they’re dressed. I’ve only been to this store about three or four times in my life and have never once shoplifted, but the staring always happened. My behaviour isn’t suspicious. The staff need to realize that they’re being incredibly rude and it’s scaring off customers. If they’re worried about shoplifting, then they should invest in security monitors instead of stalking customers. A few items caught my attention today, but I decided not to because I couldn’t stand being stared at while trying to decide what to buy. The staring is the reason I won’t go back.

This is a homeware store, and it also sells tacky, glittery ornaments (which admittedly, I like) I googled the store and it has no reviews. I was going to write a review (complaining about the staring) but feel bad because then their only review will be a bad one. Should I still do it, or let it go?

I already wrote a scathing review a few months back for a dental clinic who tried to sell me yellow veneers and fillings I didn’t need. I didn’t feel bad about that because the dental clinic was in an affluent part of town, and losing a patient or two wouldn’t affect them. However, I feel bad about the homeware store because it’s in a trashy part of town, and the owners are Asian/Arab immigrants, and don’t seem rich like dentists. They’re probably paranoid about shoplifting because attempts happen a lot? (This isn’t one of their products, it’s just an example of the kind of stuff they sell)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Waleses visit to Boston for the Earthshot Award ceremony first week of December

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

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

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

Stay tuned.

Anxiety and high risk behaviour - A paradox.

I have noticed that all my friends who have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder seem to engage in paradoxically risky behaviour.

Prime example my ex. He was crippled by anxiety and existential dread. He'd obsess about climate change, the end of the world, money, status, society, politics, cancer and death. He could barely function sometimes due to panic attacks. Super neurotic and obsessive over little things.

Yet he would also travel to dangerous places for fun, antagonise crazy people on purpose, break the law, take literally any drug offered to him by anyone, have risky sex, drive drunk, drive too fast, drive on ice etc.

He was afraid all the time but not remotely afraid of things that were actually dangerous. This is also true of a lot of other people I know with anxiety.

When I've asked they claim not to have a death wish. They genuinely don't see these things as potential risks.

Never Even Nominated: Why Wasn’t Katherine MacGregor More Appreciated?

In going down the rabbit hole of the internet, I came across this gem of an interview on YouTube with Katherine “Scottie” MacGregor aka Little House on the Prairie’s Mrs. Oleson. She seems like such a charming character and a lovely woman. She is also hilarious! Looking back on her performance in Little House, I don’t think she got all the credit she deserved. She was actually quite beautiful, an MVP among the ensemble, and gave a more nuanced performance than I realized watching as a kid. It seems outrageous she was never even nominated for a single Emmy during LHOTP’s 9-year run. I also find it kind of sad that she retired from acting after Little House ended - she could have easily continued on acting in roles throughout the 80s. She only passed away in 2018 at the age of 93. There’s surprisingly little interviews or information about her online.

Sending Ms. MacGregor some posthumous appreciation. I wish she had found more adulation in life - she deserved it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When I brought up issues of sexuality he explained that though he is not Gay he is very cognizant of LGBTQ+.

Who actually buys Chanel clothes, bags and perfumes?

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

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

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

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

How to elevate and upgrade your life the Non-Greg way

Learn how to make a soufflé. They're simple, versatile, impressive and (best of all) inexpensive. There's a James Beard recipe that should be kicking around the internet. Can't be arsed to type it all out.

If you have a patch of earth to call your own, a small garden plot can be a nice Zen exercise. Or not.

I've been told that being able to play a dozen or so tunes of the piano is a good skill to keep up your sleeve. The gentleman who imparted this to me was about 20 years old back in 1985. Maybe things have changed.

Assuming you care about such things, buy your holidays cards on sale...after the holiday. Then write them all out the first week of November. You can pop them in the post the first week of December. Again, that's assuming you care about such things.

Yarrow and lavender are durable and elegant flowers for graves.

If you obtain a Siamese cat you will either totally fall in love with the beast or detest it. Either way, no one you date afterward will be anywhere near as demanding. I'm not sure that's advice. But it seems good to know.

Inferior champagne is acceptable if properly chilled. If you drink. Maybe you don't.

Photographs of the dead are not to be lightly discarded, regardless of what you think of the people. Or think you think. It might change.

Realizing you're gay because the beautiful guy playing the piano at one of your mother's cocktail parties is suddenly the reason for your existence can be a wallop out of nowhere. Not sure what advice to give. If anyone has any ideas, share them in the comments.

When your Siamese cat dies you will feel terrible. Lay her to rest in the small garden plot. Light a candle. Make a soufflé and toast her with a glass of properly chilled champagne.

Or don't.

What bodybuilders do to their bodies — and brains

Creating a physique that can win at the highest level of professional bodybuilding requires superhuman self-discipline, intense training and genetic good fortune. Increasingly, say the people familiar with the culture and its consequences, it cannot be done without illicit drugs and a willingness to push a body to — or past — its limits.

More than a dozen scientists, trainers, judges and competitors interviewed for this report said that just earning a pro card, an amateur’s ticket to the pro ranks, is very difficult without anabolic steroids. Winning a marquee title drug-free? Several people laughed at the question.

“Impossible,” said Harrison Pope, one of the country’s leading anabolic-steroid researchers.

The behemoths who win the best-known and most lucrative titles barely resemble the iconic, classically muscled champions of the past, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, who won the sport’s premiere title, Mr. Olympia, seven times between 1970 and 1980.

“Arnold Schwarzenegger would not win today,” said Brad Schoenfeld, a professor at Lehman College in New York and author of several books on bodybuilding and muscle growth. “He would not even get a pro card.”

The Queer Cultures That the Nazis Destroyed

A tailor who made special clothes for transgender people wishes her clients happy holidays in an ad. A guidebook features dozens of cafes, clubs and bars where lesbians could meet. In personals in the back of a gay magazine, men search for love, sex and companionship.

These items are all on display in “To Be Seen: Queer Lives 1900-1950,” an exhibition at the Munich Documentation Center for the History of National Socialism that runs through May 21, 2023. The five-part show explores different dimensions of the robust lives queer people in Germany carved out for themselves in the beginning of the 20th century, positioning them as pioneers who challenged existing social structures. The final section focuses on life under the Nazis and the years that followed.

“We have to focus on the diversity that existed before 1933, because otherwise, we’re repeating the narrative of exclusion, of persecution,” said Mirjam Zadoff, the director of the Documentation Center museum, referring to the year Hitler and his National Socialists came to power.

In the first section of the show, short films tell the stories of gay and transgender individuals from the early 20th century who “tried to be themselves and to fight for themselves and their rights,” said Karolina Kühn, the exhibition’s curatorial director. One film focuses on Anita Augspurg, an activist who fought for women’s suffrage and improved working conditions for prostitutes, and against Germany’s involvement in World War I and II; another is about Claire Waldoff, a popular cabaret singer in Weimar Republic-era Berlin who was known for bawdy songs with titles like “Oh God, How Dumb Are Men?” and lived openly as a lesbian.

“It was important to us to show how many queer, trans, nonbinary people existed already during the 1920s in Germany,” said Philipp Gufler, a member of the Forum Queer Archive of Munich, who was an artistic adviser for the exhibition.

He noted that, though lesbians, gay men and transgender people often remained siloed during that period, with their own bars, clubs and publications, there were intersections as well. For example, he said, in the personal ads of Die Freundin, a popular lesbian magazine that was published from 1924 to 1933, some people wrote things like, “I’m a woman but I see myself more as a male, and I’m looking for a woman to accept this.”

Keith Olbermann cunts off on ex Katy Tur

Olbermann is the ex-partner of Dokoupil’s wife, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur—and he used Tuesday’s episode of his podcast to unleash a bizarre tirade against the couple.

The 63-year-old bachelor spent the better part of 20 minutes unpacking a laundry list of grievances with Tur, saying he’d been “pushed… over the edge” by news that Dokoupil, who has been married to Tur since 2017, got snipped.

Calling the pair “insufferable publicity addicts,” Olbermann accused Tur of “turning a vasectomy into a photo op,” adding that he’d finally “[run] out of the energy required to cover for her.”

Olbermann seemed tweaked by the fact that the vasectomy announcement—posted by Dokoupil to his Instagram page on Sunday night—did not mention him. Despite acknowledging the fact that it “doesn’t even have anything to do with me,” Olbermann said he “went looking for my name” in the coverage of Dokoupil’s decision.

“I’m reading stories about her husband getting a vasectomy, and I’m sitting there waiting to see how she managed to make this one my fault,” he said.


He also said she attacked him:

“I have remained silent even though six days after her emergency appendectomy in 2007, she started punching and slapping me, with real intent to do harm, because the living room wasn’t clean enough in our place,” Olbermann continued. “How exactly do you even try to defend yourself against a woman 125 pounds lighter and a foot shorter than you?”

lyocell vs modal sheets

What, exactly, is it that makes lyocell different from modal? And more importantly, what exactly do bamboo and eucalyptus have in common that's distinct from modal and rayon to get THEM both lumped together as 'lyocell' fabrics?

More importantly... which one, possibly when combined with cotton, makes nicer sheets that are the softest, most hygroscopic, and cool?

~15 years ago, I bought two sets of sheets from Target that were 60% cotton/40% modal. They were the greatest sheets I've ever owned.

~13 years ago, I bought a set of "modal" sheets from Bed, Bath & Beyond that ultimately kind of sucked. They were too stretchy (vs the original two sets, which were not), and never quite felt either as soft or as hygroscopic as the Target sheets.

2 years ago, I bought a set of cotton-lyocell sheets from Ikea (I don't remember which of the two it was... one was 40-60, one was 60-40... I bought the set that was ~$5 cheaper), but they were another huge disappointment because they just aren't soft. At all. And the way Ikea skimped on the fold-over edge trim just feels... cheap.

For years, I've desperately tried to find new sheets that are exactly like the ones I got from Target. The problem is, aside from knowing that they were 60/40 cotton-modal and non-stretchy, I really don't know how to describe them... or what to even search for when looking online for replacements. Any ideas?

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

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

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

Jennifer Lopez - what is wrong with her?

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

Turnout by Republicans Was Great. It's Just That Many of Them Didn't Vote for Republicans.

After yet another disappointing showing for Republicans in Georgia’s Senate runoff on Tuesday, some conservatives — like Sean Hannity, Newt Gingrich and Kevin McCarthy — have begun to point to a surprising culprit: a failure to take advantage of early voting.

The theory seems to be that Republicans are losing because early voting is giving Democrats a turnout edge. It follows a similar conversation after the midterm elections, when a chorus of conservatives said Republicans needed to start encouraging mail voting.

But as more data becomes available on turnout in this year’s election, it is quite clear that turnout was not the main problem facing Republicans.

In state after state, the final turnout data shows that registered Republicans turned out at a higher rate — and in some places a much higher rate — than registered Democrats, including in many of the states where Republicans were dealt some of their most embarrassing losses.

Instead, high-profile Republicans like Herschel Walker in Georgia or Blake Masters in Arizona lost because Republican-leaning voters decided to cast ballots for Democrats, even as they voted for Republican candidates for U.S. House or other down-ballot races in their states.

Georgia is a fine example. While Walker may blame turnout for his poor showing in November and earlier this week, other Republican candidates seemed to have no problem at all. Gov. Brian Kemp won by nearly 8 points over Stacey Abrams; Republican candidates for House won the most votes on the same day.

Yet Sen. Raphael Warnock won in Georgia anyway because a large group of voters willing to back other Republicans weren’t willing to back Walker.

The final turnout figures make it clear that Republicans — including Walker — benefited from very favorable turnout last month. Unlike in recent years, Republican primary voters were likelier to vote than Democrats (by a modest margin). Meanwhile, the white turnout rate exceeded the Black turnout rate by the widest margin since 2006.

We went back and looked at the respondents to our preelection Times/Siena survey, and matched them to postelection vote turnout records. We found that the respondents who said they backed Walker were actually likelier to vote than those who said they backed Warnock.

But Walker still lost.

On Tuesday, Walker lost again. This time, he lost by 3 points — 2 points worse than in November. The final turnout data won’t be in for weeks, but for now it is reasonable to suppose that Warnock fared better because the turnout was incrementally more favorable to him than it was in November.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean Democrats enjoyed a great turnout. All of the Republicans running for statewide office — other than Walker — could have easily survived an electorate that was 2 points less favorable.

By our estimates, the 2022 electorate was several points more favorable to Republicans in Georgia than the 2020 electorate — which wasn’t great for Democrats, either.

Any Democratic gains in the runoff almost certainly weren’t because of early voting. After all, this election was held with just one week of early voting, as opposed to three weeks in the general election. The number of Election Day voters actually increased in the runoff. So did the share of votes cast on Election Day. But it was the Democrat who fared better.

Georgia is just one example of a broader national turnout gap, including in many of the places where Republicans blame early voting for their woes.

Take Maricopa County in Arizona. It’s home to Phoenix and around 70% of the state’s voters. Some Republicans say — without any clear evidence — they faltered in Arizona because some Maricopa voters were unable to cast ballots at the polls on Election Day, but the final turnout data shows that 75% of registered Republicans turned out, compared with 69% of Democrats. That was enough to yield an electorate in which registered Republicans outnumbered Democrats by 9 percentage points. Yet Republicans like Masters and Kari Lake lost their races for Senate and governor.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

by Anonymousreplies 252December 9, 2022 12:48 AM

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

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

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

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

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

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

How to elevate and upgrade your life...

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

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

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

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

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

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

–Clean your refrigerator and freezer – weekly.

–Install rheostats on all your lights.

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

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

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

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

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

Ok DL Doctors & Nurses, Diagnose Me

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.

The New Autobiography of Mary Rogers Looks Like Datalounge GOLD!

Copying and pasting due to the paywall.

SHY: The Alarmingly Outspoken Memoirs of Mary Rodgers, by Mary Rodgers and Jesse Green

Let’s start with a full disclosure: I’m a sucker for Broadway — one of those theater fans who will see five different productions of the same show, who genuflect before cast albums from the ’50s, who inhale theater gossip as if it really mattered. I’m also a sucker for books about Broadway, books as different from one another as Moss Hart’s “Act One,” William Goldman’s “The Season” and Jack Viertel’s “The Secret Life of the American Musical.” But I’ve never read one more entertaining (and more revealing) than Mary Rodgers’s “Shy.” Her voice careens between intimate, sardonic, confessional, comic. The book is pure pleasure — except when it’s jaw-droppingly shocking.

Written in collaboration with the New York Times theater critic Jesse Green, who completed it after Rodgers’s death at 83 in 2014, “Shy” relates the life story of a successful songwriter-scriptwriter-television producer-children’s book writer. And also the mother of six, the wife of two, an occasional adulterer, a credulous participant in an earnest trial marriage to Stephen Sondheim (!) — and the daughter of two of the most vividly (if scarily) rendered parents I’ve ever encountered.

“Daddy” is the first word in the book, and it provokes the first of Green’s many illuminating footnotes, which enrich the pages of “Shy” like butter on a steak. This one grasps Richard Rodgers in four words: “composer, womanizer, alcoholic, genius.” The composer part we all know, and if your tastes run in the direction of “Oklahoma!,” “South Pacific,” “Carousel,” et many al., the genius as well. As for the other two elements, the womanizing was unstoppable, racing through chorus girls, Eva Gabor, apparently Diahann Carroll and definitely the original Tuptim in “The King and I” — according to Mary, “the whitest Burmese slave princess ever.” The drinking was equally prodigious. Dick (as he was known, and will be known here to keep the various Rodgerses straight) hid vodka bottles in toilet tanks — a clever ploy for an aging man whose bladder wasn’t likely as robust as it once had been. Lunches were lubricated with a 50-50 concoction of Dubonnet and gin. Evenings heralded a continuous parade of Scotch-and-sodas. A depressive who once spent three months in a psychiatric hospital, he was also remote and inscrutable, with a capacity for cruelty. Mary writes, “He hated having his time wasted with intangible things like emotions.”

Janet Yellen Unveils First US Banknotes Signed by Female Treasury Chief

(Bloomberg) — Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen hailed the work done by women in her department as she unveiled the first US banknotes bearing the signature of a female secretary.

“Women represent around 62% of the Treasury workforce, and women are in positions of power across our department,” Yellen said Thursday at a Bureau of Engraving and Printing facility in Fort Worth, Texas. “Today is not about me or a new signature on our currency. It’s about our collective work to create a stronger and more inclusive economy.”

The new $1 and $5 bills being printed in Ft. Worth are also the first carrying the signature of a Native American woman — US Treasurer Lynn Malerba. The banknotes will be delivered to the Federal Reserve in December and enter into circulation in January, a Treasury spokesperson said.

Reese Witherspoon & Alexander Payne to Reteam on Election Sequel: TRACY FLICK CANT WIN

Reese Witherspoon is reprising her role as go-getter Tracy Flick in “Tracy Flick Can’t Win,” a sequel to the 1999 political comedy “Election.”

Alexander Payne, who co-wrote and directed the original film, is returning for the follow-up, which is set to debut on Paramount’s streaming service, Paramount+. In addition to directing, Payne will write the movie adaptation with Jim Taylor.

In “Election,” based on the 1998 novel by Tom Perrotta, Witherspoon portrayed an ambitious, Type-A student whose social studies teacher (played by Matthew Broderick) attempts to sabotage her campaign to become school president. Although it wasn’t a box office draw, the movie was nominated at the Oscars for best adapted screenplay, while Witherspoon landed attention at the Golden Globes in the best actress race.

The sequel, based on Perrotta’s follow-up novel that published earlier this year, picks up with Tracy in adulthood as she continues to struggle to fight her way to the top at work. She’s the assistant principal at a public high school in suburban New Jersey, but she sets her sights on the top job as her boss announces plans to retire.

In the New York Times’ review, critic Molly Young described the follow-up story as “even more piercing than its predecessor” and praised Perrotta’s characters as “exquisitely drawn.” Meanwhile, Vox’s Constance Grady calls Tracy Flick “a Rorschach test for how we think about women, ambition, and the power dynamics of sex. “

Witherspoon will produce the film with Lauren Neustadter for Hello Sunshine, a Candle Media company. Additional producers include Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa of Bona Fide Productions. Perrotta is executive producing.

Air Force gender-inclusive training tells cadets to not use ‘mom,’ ‘dad’

No more letters home to Mom.

Air Force cadets are being told to address people in ways that “include all genders” — dropping the use of “boyfriend or girlfriend” and even “mom and dad.”

“Use words that include all genders,” the training material tells cadets, warning them to “ask” people what they “call themselves” rather than assuming.

Instead of saying “you guys,” cadets are told to use gender-neutral terms like “team,” “squaddies,” “folks” and even “y’all.”

“Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad,'” the presentation states, telling cadets to “recognize diverse family formation.”

Equally, they are told to use “partner” rather than “boyfriend or girlfriend.’”

The training says to also use “person-centered” language, such as “people with disabilities” instead of “the disabled” and “transgender people” rather than “transgenders.”

“Not ‘Colorblind’ or ‘I don’t see color,’ but Color Conscious,” it adds. “We see Color/Patterns AND VALUE people for their uniqueness.”

Republican Maryland Judge Kills Himself Moments Before Arrest for Child Sex Abuse

A Maryland judge killed himself on Friday morning, just as the feds showed up at his Henderson home to arrest him in a child sex abuse case.

Caroline County Circuit Judge Jonathan Newell, 50, had been on a leave of absence since July after becoming ensnared in an investigation over allegations that he had a hidden camera that captured naked images of boys in his bathroom. When FBI agents showed up at his door Friday morning to arrest him on a federal criminal complaint, they found him “suffering from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound,” the Maryland U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Friday. He was pronounced dead at 6:43 a.m.

Investigators interviewed two boys, both minors, who said that they had “spent the night,” with Newell on July 22, when they allegedly discovered a hidden camera.

One of the boys told investigators that after undressing in the bathroom he found a camera that was on and facing the shower inside a small black crate on a shelf in the corner of the bathroom

After telling the other boy about the camera he had discovered, the two boys went on Newell’s boat and both told their parents about the camera in the bathroom, the documents state. Their parents subsequently contacted law enforcement.

In 2016, Newell, a Republican, was appointed as a judge to Caroline County’s only circuit court by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan. He held onto that role in 2018 and was serving a 15-year term before taking his life.

The Madness of King George (1994)

Directed by the stage and opera director Nicholas Hytner (his first film).

Based on the award winning play by Alan Bennett.

Music by George Frederick Handel.

As George III mental health deteriorates, his eldest son, the Prince of Wales, tries to outs him during the Regency Crisis of 1788-1789.

Nigel Hawthorne gives one of the greatest film performances as the titular George III. Hawthorne humanizes King George to a level most actors could never do. He should have one the Academy Award (he did win the more accurate BAFTA).

Helen Mirren as Queen Charlotte is solid. Mirren is trying to mitigate an already uncontrollable situation. Ian Holm as Dr. Willis is stoic. The supporting cast is a roll call of British thespians- Jim Carter, Geoffrey Palmer, Rupert Graves, Amanda Donohoe, Jeremy Northam, and the always reliable John Wood.

Rupert Everett almost steals the film from Hawthorne as the gluttonous George IV. He is manipulative and downright nasty.

Jim Kolbe, Openly Gay Republican Congressman, Is Dead at 80

His vote for the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996 prompted a gay-interest magazine to prepare to out him. He later regretted his vote and celebrated coming out.

Jim Kolbe, who for a decade was the only openly gay Republican in Congress, died on Saturday. He was 80.

The death was announced by Gov. Doug Ducey of Arizona. The statement did not say where he died or cite a cause.

Mr. Kolbe, who served in the House of Representatives from 1985 until he retired in 2007, represented a politically moderate area of Arizona centered on Tucson, and for the first half of his tenure he was known mainly as a low-key fiscal conservative. He served as a lead negotiator in the House while working on the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1993.

Following his vote in July 1996 for passage of the Defense of Marriage Act, which banned federal recognition of same-sex marriage and permitted states not to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states, Mr. Kolbe (pronounced KOHL-bee) caught wind of the fact that The Advocate, a magazine for gay readers, planned to publish a story saying that he was a closeted homosexual.

A few weeks later, shortly before the article appeared, Mr. Kolbe beat them to it. “That I am a gay person has never affected the way I legislate,” he said in a statement. “The fact that I am gay has never, nor will it ever, change my commitment to represent all the people of Arizona’s Fifth District.”

He defended his vote on the Defense of Marriage Act in an interview with The Tucson Citizen, saying that as a conservative, he believed individual states should be allowed to determine their laws surrounding same-sex marriage.

Mr. Kolbe faced re-election just months later. Posters appeared in his district at the time reading “KOLBE RAPED A BOY” and “KOLBE: I HAVE AIDS,” The Advocate reported in a 2004 profile. Yet he won, with 68 percent of the vote. Mr. Gunderson retired in 1997, leaving Mr. Kolbe the only openly gay person in his congressional caucus.

At the 2000 Republican National Convention, Mr. Kolbe received a prime-time speaking slot, which The Advocate said was a first for an openly gay Republican.

He spoke about free trade, a central principle in his political career, and avoided the subject of sexuality. Nevertheless, to register their disapproval, delegates from Texas took off their straw cowboy hats, closed their eyes and bowed their heads in prayer. One man held a sign reading, “There is a way out.”

Over time, Mr. Kolbe took on a more active role in gay issues. In what The Advocate labeled a series of “quiet fights,” he promoted legislation to combat hate crimes and supported measures to halt discrimination in employment.

Christopher Barron, the former political director of the Log Cabin Republicans, told The Advocate that Mr. Kolbe was the “epitome” of what Republicanism meant to the organization.

At my work, one department hates another. Do you have opposing factions at your job?

Where I work we do custom metal fabrication. There is the shop that’s dirty, noisy, hot or cold, where the actual fabricating occurs. Attached to the shop is the office. Where designers, engineers, purchasers, and management work. It’s clean and climate controlled.

I work in the office as an engineer and I constantly have to hear derogatory remarks about the office from the shop. They say we’re not needed. That we’re lazy. That if it wasn’t for the shop we wouldn’t have jobs.

Nobody in the office makes such remarks about the shop. Nobody in the office brings up how if it wasn’t for the purchasers buying steel and engineering making drawings that the shop wouldn’t have a clue what to do.

This hate is all so one sided. And it’s getting worse. It’s like the proletariat vs the rich.

Same day termination / layoffs - American phenomenon?

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

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

Isabella Rossellini

The daughter of Italian director Roberto Rossellini and Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman, Rossellini was slated to be the Europe "it" girl of the 1980's.

Her film debut was in A Matter of Time, then the Italian thriller The Meadow. Her breakthrough role was White Nights, which was average.

Blue Velvet was an international hit. Rossellini starred alongside Kyle MacLachlan, Laura Dern, Dean Stockwell, Hope Lange, and Dennis Hopper.

Tough Guys Don't Dance sank her career and I don't think she fully recovered. Siesta came next. Rossellini was nominated for the Razzie for both films.

It wasn't until Death Becomes Her where she became relevant again. Death Becomes Her was followed by a few moderate successes- The Innocent, Wyatt Earp, Immortal Beloved, Big Night, and Left Luggage.

Then nothing.

Then a few episodes of 30 Rock.

Then nothing.

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

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

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Will Reportedly Be the Next 'James Bond'

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Christina: Yeah.

Drew: I don’t think big faggot.

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

and later on:

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


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

Just... WHAT?

The vote of 258-169 sends the Respect for Marriage Act to President Joe Biden, who has championed the bill and is expected to sign it into law. It comes after the Senate passed the same bill last week by a vote of 61-36.

Democrats were unified in favor of the bill, while most Republicans in both chambers voted against it. Thirty-nine House Republicans supported the legislation Thursday and one voted present.

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

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

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

Boston Has Voted to Lower the Voting Age to 16

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blind Item Reveal- ABC is hoping Tyra will walk away from Hosting DWTS, but…

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

Tyra Banks/Dancing With The Stars”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I finally get Madonna…

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

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

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

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

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

California's Prison Population Shrinks by 30,000

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do you have a favorite Jane Austen novel?

Everyone has their favorite one, and people differ greatly as to which they love the most.

I am not including Lady Susan (an early experiment, which she got tired of and finished off quickly, and never published), The Watsons (left unfinished at her death) or Sanditon (ditto).

And I am asking about the actual novels themselves--not which one made for your favorite TV or film adaptation.

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

Prince Harry made a surprise stop on Veterans Day.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WHET to Susan Powter ?

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

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

Is Wellbutrin Becoming the Oxycontin of the '20's?

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

Is this the new "wonder" drug that we're going to pay the consequences of in a few years?

Also, what is the term for when a drug that was developed to treat one malady is then used to treat something else e.g. Viagra? Off brand?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pearl Harbor: 80 Years Ago Today

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

Emma Corrin Calls For Gender-Neutral Oscars.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Brendan Fraser as "The Whale." HOLY SHIT!

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Whale does not have a theatrical date yet.

The great The Crown miscast

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

HBO Max is dead to me; merged service with Discovery will just be called “Max”

This is likely only temporarily until Comcast buys it.
