Hakeem Jeffries posts Most Relevant Tweet of 2022
I doubt anything will top this:An extreme political party that makes it harder to vote and easier to die of gun violence is unfit to govern.
Parkland and Uvalde and Sandy Hook Elementary
The AR 15 was used at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School in Parkland, Florida and at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas and at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. Other nations also face mental health challenges and violent television programs and violent video games ... , but the United States alone has the massive amount of gun deaths every year. The problem in the United States primarily is the guns. There is a marked difference between when we had the assault weapons ban in place and when it expired. This sick treasonous fuck was once President of the United States.
Random gun violence in America
We are the only country in the world that has so much random gun violence. Some attribute random gun violence to mental illness. All we seem to be able to do about random gun violence in America is to offer “thoughts and prayers”. However effective this may be in some areas, “thoughts and prayers” has been spectacularly ineffective in preventing or even reducing random gun violence. Again, we will not solve the problem of random gun violence until we have a correct interpretation of the Second Amendment.
In Raffensperger call, Trump hoped to disqualify Biden votes.
On January 2, 2021, former president Donald J. Trump had an hour-long phone call with Georgia secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger. Among numerous headline grabbing quotes from the former president is this well-known doozy:“All I want to do is this. In this instance, Trump wants to find 11,780 of BIDEN’s votes to disqualify. During the call, Trump alternately pressures Raffensperger to add to his vote total or lower Biden’s vote total. This distinction between adding votes and disqualifying votes needs more traction in national reporting.
Courts allow New York to eliminate religious exemptions to vaccine mandates
Judge Hartman has previously, in a careful decision upheld on appeal, rejected the plaintiffs’ request for a preliminary injunction on stricter school vaccine mandates. is the first, and hence the name on the decision) who claim religious objections to vaccines and are affected by the removal of the religious exemption. The main claim was that the legislature acted with religious animus in removing the religious exemption. As the court pointed out, recent jurisprudence has supported this decision regarding school vaccine mandates. Because school mandates were not created to target religion, they would not require a religious exemption under this jurisprudence.
Progressive Talking Point for Today — “Good Guys with Guns” at Schools
My elementary school - attended at a time when, thankfully, school shootings did not occur more than weekly in the United States. I will presume that the Law Enforcement Professionals of Uvalde are good and highly-trained officers dedicated to public service. So if that many “Good guys with guns” will not engage a single shooter armed with a weapon of war, it’s time to finally dismiss this lie and demand that Assault Weapons are removed from our streets. I also make the promise — I will NEVER vote for ANY candidate at ANY level that does not support halting public access to Assault Weapons. I will be telling this to all political candidates in my community, and, if you agree, I encourage you to do the same.
Observations from an immigrant on the American gun apocalypse
Each culture has its blind spots as it is part of our humanness to get used to ways of being within a lot of unspoken social norms and constructs. Lots of it and all the time, symbolized by 400 million guns, purchased presumably due to some perceived threat to protect oneself against. And this violent, frightened, and oppressive mindset has never been honestly processed for healing or reconciliation to occur on a broad societal basis. Every time there is a reckoning — from Reconstruction to the Civil Rights movement to BLM — there's a huge white backlash, rooted in... fear. Fear of the other, fear of losing control and power, fear of fear itself.
The Bullet Tax: a Targeted Solution at $100 a Pop
Then let’s make ownership of bullets, by individuals or businesses, subject to an annual property tax at $100 apiece – why just tax land? Does anyone want to do the math on the potential revenue from one bullet made at $100, wholesaled at $100, retailed at $100, and owned at the end of that year for tax purposes at $100? Direct every surplus penny from the Bullet Tax toward violence prevention and mental health programs, with funding in each jurisdiction keyed to the Bullet Tax funds collected there. Penalize any failure to pay the Bullet Tax, by individuals or businesses, as a felony with appropriate mandatory minimums, and fund enforcement with the proceeds from the Bullet Tax. You might say the Benjamin Bullet Tax isn’t a real solution.

AntiCapitalist MeetUp: what does a (democratic) socialist politics of climate change look like? Natural resources rents are estimated as the difference between the price of a commodity and the average cost of producing it. Total natural resources rents are the sum of oil rents , natural gas rents , coal rents , mineral rents , and forest rents . Total natural resources rents (% of GDP) Definition: Total natural resources rents are the sum of oil rents, natural gas rents, coal rents (hard and soft), mineral rents, and forest rents. For example, Michael Hudson is a proponent for taxing rent, especially land rent. What appears in the statistics at first glance as 'profit' turns out upon examination to be Ricardian or 'economic' rent."
A pastor blames the Uvalde slaughter on teaching evolution.
Pastor Jack "pro-death" HibbsPastor Jack Hibbs, of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, blamed the Uvalde school slaughter on the teaching of evolution. We need to be unpacking that, instead of this issue of the second amendment. This man, this young man conducted himself like an animal.”Indeed, evolution does not assign Homo sapiens a special place. AddendumPeople, who think that a patriot's duty is to keep their fellow citizens safe, may wish there was no second amendment. However, the vast majority of those good folks understand that the second amendment is not going away — and neither are the 400 million personal guns already in circulation.
LGBTQ Literature: Y'all Means All: The Emerging Voices Queering Appalachia
That’s part of why I was so drawn to Z. Zane McNeill’s new edited collection Y’all Means All: The Emerging Voices Queering Appalachia. Y'all Means All is a celebration of the weird and wonderful aspects of a troubled region in all of their manifest glory! I’m not sure if it’s a coincidence that, right after reading this chapter in Y’all Means All, I came across this bumper sticker on Reddit. In this case, Mothman discourse can at least be used for identity work related to Appalachian queer, and queer-Appalachian identities. Whether or not you’re from Appalachia, Y’all Means All will certainly reshape and complicate your understanding of the region.
DK Quilt Guild: Its Too Damn Wonky!
I had hoped to have at least a finished top to show today but no matter how hard I have tried, this damn thing is WONKY! If this doesn’t work, I am just going to put it together wonky and live with it. DK Quilt Guild is a place for quilters to gather, share ideas, projects, and to make the world abetter place, one quilt at a time. Would you like to write a future DK Quilt Guild diary? I took a workshop from a quilt artist who said she took something apart 3 times, and that was it!
School Shootings
That's why no other developed country has the epidemic of mass school shootings that America does. School children in so many other countries are safer than American school children. They block gun laws, health care for all, food assistance, funding for early childhood education and college education. He points his finger at everyone but himself, yet he is the one who loosened gun laws in that state. The schools have done about all they can, and still we have more school shootings than any other country in the world.
The Two Steps To Take To Attack Gun Violence
An Eagle In Disguise Doing What Must Be DoneThere are really only two steps the country must take to solve the current mass-murder-shooting epidemic. Now, I am not naive, and neither am I unaware of the complications of both of those needed steps. So, it is time now to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to achieve those two steps, and worry about sorting it out later. They may be home-grown gun mass-murder profiteering gun-runners, but that only makes them even more despicable. It can, we can help, and so the President should declare a NATIONAL MASS-MURDER GUN EMERGENCY, and do whatever it takes after that.
Less than 6 days later, another Mass Shooting
Less than six days later, there was another Mass Shooting in Taft, Oklahoma where eight people were shot, killing one thus far and wounding seven others. Can we not just learn to talk with one another, even argue with one another without pulling out the guns and shooting and killing one another? Violence begets violence. To our almighty and powerful Father in heaven, please end the gun violence within this country. Please get each of us to love our enemies as much as we love our family and friends and as much as JESUS has loved and does love us.
Watch Me Club This Beast Into Submission Like It Was a Libtard
The red-faced, nearly teary-eyed Trump Jr. shouted that the shooter was a “sociopath” who could wreak the same havoc with nearly any other weapon. “ It’s the gun; it’s not the sociopath wielding it,” people are claiming, he complained. “He wouldn’t have done the exact same thing with a bat, or a bomb, or some sort of improvised device — or a machete?” he added. The real problem is that people are “screwed up,” and we have “crazy teachers” and “indoctrination programs” in our schools, he insisted. Did he also say, “Eric, you catch him and hold him, and I’ll club him?”
Update on Bar Complaints
However, some kind of deadline passed in March, and most of us who had filed complaints believed that something was afoot. I then searched to check the status of other bar complaints. Attorneys, State Bar Disciplinary officials, and academics in legal ethics. Which leads me to ask if a response to a bar complaint itself contains lies, does this constitute a new and additional charge? But—like with Giuliani—the bar disciplinary complaint itself is still pending.
Wyoming: previous guy is workshopping new material because it's easy to attack children
Trump tried out new material since it’s easy to punch downward. President Donald Trump had decided to focus his new rallies around attacking transgender children. By 2022, Politico explained that Trump's new campaign is going after minors. In a 90-minute rant in Casper, Wyoming on Saturday, Trump attacked Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who is one of the Republicans on the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Instead of discussing issues that those in Wyoming care about most, he took a different turn.
Kitchen Table Kibitzing May 29, 2022
Kitchen TableWater WellnessFrom Paul Krugman today:“Or consider the megadrought now afflicting the Western United States. Our water is pumped from underground into a 20 gallon pressure tank; a bladder creates the pressure which propels the water to the house. I hypothesized….what if the pressure tank was 6,000 gallons? One pump is inside the tank, another pressure tank is on the pad next to the big tank. A tank truck came and filled the tank 2/3 of the way with potable water so as not to stress the well initially.
Gun-Toting Teachers!
Anyone who feels that their best solution to their life’s challenges is to open fire on others is obvious a deeply troubled soul. And instead of limiting access to these weapons, they suggest arming the teachers and school staff as a viable corrective measure! -These school staff are then responsible for the safety of the students, potentially blamed for failing to stop future assaults. -If these Neo Era School Teachers (NESTers) become a governmental fighting force, well, their wages must increase dramatically! taylor greene etc, consider arming school teachers and staff instead of controlling the weapons?..

Big Oil Lust Affair
Up here, even our print news-media formally support Canada’s fossil fuel industry. [“Mair on Media’s ‘Unholiest of Alliances’ With Energy Industry”, Nov.14 2017,] a presentation, it was stated: “Postmedia and CAPP [Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers] will bring energy to the forefront of our national conversation. Meantime, there still are reporters and editors who will (as though with big innocent fawn-like eyes) reply to such critiques as this with, ‘Who, me?

Structural Racism in Long Island (NY) School Funding
A just released ERASE Racism report details the inequitable funding of Long Island, New York schools and the impact on minority group students. The report, "Unequal Resources for Long Island Students Based on Race," focuses on 66 Long Island school districts. school districts, on average, spend nearly $10,000 less per student each year than the predominantly white school districts. school districts face both financial and environmental stress and have significantly higher teacher turnover. The Erase Racism report also documented that the number of intensely segregated school districts on Long Island is growing.

TX-Gov: Watch Gov. Greg Abbott (R) Greeted With A Lot Of Loud Boos At Uvalde Memorial Site
President Joe Biden was warmly greeted when he visited Uvalde Sunday, but Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott was loudly booed as he approached the makeshift memorial at the elementary school where 19 children and two teachers were killed last week in a mass shooting. Greg Abbott on Friday gave two different speeches about gun control that went on at the same time – with two vastly different messages. He instead held an in-person press conference in Uvalde and sent a pre-recorded message to the NRA audience. And there will be laws in multiple different subject areas," Abbott added during the Uvalde press conference.
Ukraine Invasion Day 96: no memorial day in sight
[4] Russian Telegram channels reported that Russian forces successfully seized Pasika on May 28, but ISW cannot independently confirm this claim. [5] Russian forces did not attempt to advance directly south of Izyum and are likely prioritizing an advance north of Lyman. [7] Russian forces from Izyum may join units in Lyman to conduct an offensive on Siversk or pursue a separate drive on Slovyansk. [9] Haidai stressed that Russian forces have not isolated the city, despite damaging a bridge along the Lysychansk-Severodonetsk road. [16] Russian forces will likely continue offensive operations on Bakhmut as well as the T1302 and T1303 highways to isolate Ukrainian forces in the Severodonetsk-Lysychansk area.

SRSLY? Now Trump is Calling the January 6th Insurrection 'a Hoax...Just Like Russia Russia Russia'
This one was in Wyoming where Trump is trying to oust Rep. Liz Cheney, a fellow Republican who he has declared insufficiently worshipful. In addition to his first impeachment, his second impeachment, his extortion of Ukrainian President Zelenskyy, the COVID-19 virus, the Mueller Report, climate change, the 2020 presidential election results, and his well-documented connections to Russia, Trump is now adding the January 6th insurrection.

Overnight News Digest May 29, 2022
NPRAfter Uvalde, mass shootings continue over the weekend across the U.S.At least eight mass shootings took place across the U.S. over the weekend following Tuesday's mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Another 765 people were forced to leave their homes, at least temporarily, according to the state government. Authorities in the neighbouring state of Alagoas had registered two deaths, according to Brazil’s federal emergency service. The hurricane comes as federal forecasters expect yet another busy Atlantic hurricane season in 2022: As many as 10 hurricanes could form, meteorologists said last week. Rights groups say thousands of politicians, activists and journalists are detained in Egypt after unfair trials or without legal basis.
Kemp and Raffensperger: Since when is avoiding jail for election fraud a "moral" or "heroic" act?
One of them is the elevation to near heroic status of Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for simply following the law in 2020. So I am more than tired of hearing about how they did the “moral” or “ethical” thing by refusing to commit election fraud at Donald Trump’s request in November 2020. Again a no-brainer, because actual prosecutions for the actions Trump asked them to take are currently being pursued on the state and federal level. I’m not a criminal lawyer, but I have the feeling “finding 11,780 votes” is a least as serious a crime as presenting alternate electors. Remember: Young people are the Sleeping Giant Waiting to Save Democracy in the United States, just waiting to be unleashed.

Patriarch Kirill sends up a carefully coded distress flare
Among other things, when Russia invaded Ukraine Kirill publicly supported Putin’s line that Russian land includes Ukraine, Belarus and elsewhere. So it’s remarkable that today at Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior, Kirill reacted to this week’s decision by the Ukrainian Orthodox Church to break away from Kirill’s control, saying that he understood the decision, and that:We fully understand how the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is suffering today. Although a small sign by itself, this is not the only evidence of cracks in the Moscow patriarchy’s support for the invasion of Ukraine. Perhaps Kirill’s expression of sympathy for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church today is a sign of further political maneuvering within the Moscow patriarchy. 22% identified with the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (OCU), reestablished in 1990 as being independent from Moscow.

KosAbility: Who else feels like one of the only people still actively avoiding covid19? (poll)
Yesterday, I read that the number of new covid19 cases in the U.S. right now is five times higher than a year ago. Below are some resources about covid risk assessment, long covid, and psychological and social aspects of risk assessments. ‘If you’d prefer to avoid COVID & have become less cautious, it’s time to re-think.’ Wachter cited his concerns about long COVID and other virus-related risks (”heart/neuro/diabetes”). For most, their initial infection didn’t require hospitalization, but long Covid lasted months. A small #NIH study found those likely to suffer from Long COVID had Type 2 diabetes, reactivated Epstein-Barr virus, or autoantibodies when they had COVID-19.

I doubt anything will top this:An extreme political party that makes it harder to vote and easier to die of gun violence is unfit to govern.

'Big enough to swing elections': Democrats target AAPI voters with new super PAC

How to Defeat the Billionaire Class
Reprinted from chrishedges.substack.comThere are ways to defeat the billionaire class and many of these tactics have been pioneered by Socialist City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant and the Socialist Alternative (SA) party in Seattle. She and the SA have adopted a series of unorthodox methods to fight the ruling oligarchs and, in that confrontation, exposed the Democratic Party leadership as craven tools of the billionaire class. The Democratic Party in Seattle is currently trying to gerrymander her district to separate her from working-class supporters. She is not interested in "cordial relationships" with big business, establishment politicians, the Democratic Party and business lobbyists. The self-identified progressives in the Democratic Party, she says, play "a role which is contrary to the interests of working people.

The Eurasian Economic Union Steps Up
It's always important to remember that before Maidan in 2014, Ukraine had the option to become a full member of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), and even balance it with a loose association with the EU. The Eurasian Economic Forum was established by the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council explicitly to further deepen economic cooperation between EAEU members. To really appreciate the scope of what's implied, it's important to remember that the Greater Eurasian Partnership concept was presented by Putin in 2016 at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, focused on a "more extensive Eurasian partnership involving the Eurasian Economic Union" and including China, Pakistan, Iran and India. Putin for his part was careful to define the Greater Eurasian Partnership as "a big civilizational project. Thus, the necessity to "draft a comprehensive strategy for developing large-scale Eurasian partnership", including "a roadmap for industrialization".

Most likely, the Democratic leadership already knows this, via polling they've commissioned. It is at least a little mysterious why pollsters have done a poll on the effect of such announcements on the 2022 and 2024 elections. This is exactly the reason why now we are staring into potential clobbering of the Democrats by the Republicans and by the right-wing in the midterm elections." I think declarations Biden, Harris and even Pelosi will make a big difference, maybe even shifts of a point or two in key races in Florida, Arizona, Pennsylvania and elsewhere. The Centrist Democratic leadership has been the biggest problem the Democratic party has had, and of course Joe Biden is at the top.
Biden hails Modi, the butcher of Gujarat, for India’s COVID policy of mass death
(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)By what metric he was measuring the “success” of India or, for that matter, its “democratic” character, Biden did not say. Indeed, of the total estimated global excess deaths from COVID-19 (14.9 million), India accounts for nearly one-third. Thus, according to Biden, the “success” of the Modi government consists in having overseen the most COVID-19 deaths of any country on the planet. As Biden noted in his remarks to Modi, the populations of China (1.4 billion) and India (1.38 billion) are comparable in size. At the same time, as the American financial oligarchy demands a COVID policy of endless mass infection and death, it hails the “success” of India as a model.
GUIDE: How will my state be impacted by the overturning of Roe v. Wade?
To see the state-by-state breakdown of abortion restrictions after the Supreme Court’s expected overturning of Roe v. Wade, click here. Each state’s laws on abortion are different, which means the effect of the expected decision will also vary state by state. While these regulations do not ban abortion completely, they will make it much more difficult to obtain an abortion. Ohio: Abortion will remain legal up to 20 weeks, unless the state legislature manages to pass a trigger ban prior to Roe being overturned. New Mexico: Abortion care will remain legal throughout pregnancy, and is unlikely to change, unless the Republicans win several state elections.

Matthew McConaughey Visits Hometown of Uvalde, Texas Following Mass Shooting Massacre
In the wake of the sickening school shooting in Uvalde, Texas last week, many Hollywood celebrities voiced their rage and disgust on social media. But when Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey penned a message urging people to “re-evalute, and renegotiate our wants from our needs” regarding gun rights, it was notable for a few reasons. Most germane to the current tragedy, however, is the fact McConaughey was born in Uvalde, Texas, and lived there until he was approximately 11-years-old. (Indeed, his mother was a kindergarten teacher in Uvalde, at school just four minutes down the road from Robb Elementary.) Gonzales also shared that he was welcoming President Joe Biden to the area, with the across-the-aisle hashtag #UnitedForUvalde.
Ruben Östlund Enters Exclusive Two-Timers Club With Cannes Film Festival Win
The 75th Cannes Film Festival has concluded, and the global cadre of industry insiders, movie fanatics, press, and influencers have all made the long trip home. Swedish director Ruben Östlund now joins the very exclusive club of being a two-time winner of the Palme d’Or, the festival’s top prize. Östlund won the Palme in 2017 for The Square, and his 2014 Force Majeure (remade into Downhill with Will Ferrell and Julia-Louis Dreyfus) took home the jury prize at Cannes’s Un Certain Regard sidebar. Belgium’s Lukas Dhont, coming off his controversial drama Girl, won with Close, focusing on the friendship of two young boys. (The story is based on a Denis Johnson novel; the pandemic was the Nicaraguan Revolution in the original.)
“I Feel Like I Live in a Construction Zone”: Renovation Frenzy Has Gripped the Hamptons
The sizzling pandemic-fueled Hamptons real estate market may be starting to cool, but in its wake is a renovation frenzy now upending the East End. “What’s going on in East Hampton is a nightmare,” said one resident who is worried about having a not-so-peaceful summer. “The [new] Tesla parking lot is a complete eyesore, huge new houses take up entire lots, there are dirt piles and trucks everywhere. I feel like I live in a construction zone.”Jeff Corbin, a technology consultant, has also gotten caught up in the upheaval of pandemic buying and building. Landing a contractor in the Hamptons is just the latest measure of status, like getting a dinner reservation at Le Bilboquet in Sag Harbor.
President Biden Pays Tribute To Victims Of School Mass Shooting In Uvalde, Texas—The Second Massacre In Two Weeks
President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden faced yet another grieving community affected by a mass shooting—this time at a Texas elementary school that killed 19 students and two teachers. The last funeral from that shooting was on Saturday, with Vice President Kamala Harris and the First Gentlemen in attendance. Before attending Mass at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, the Bidens visited the memorial outside Robb Elementary School, consisting of 21 white crosses for each shooting victim. Mckinzie Hinojosa, whose cousin Eliahana Torres was killed Tuesday, said she respected Biden’s decision to mourn with the people of Uvalde. A mass shooting happens.
The NRA Is Pouring Millions Into Blocking Gun Violence Prevention
Maybe the school wasn’t sufficiently “hardened,” as Texas Senator Ted Cruz lamented outside the school where 19 kids and two teachers were gunned down Tuesday. “Ted Cruz is just a slave to the gun lobby,” Texas Democrat Joaquin Castro said this week. Among them: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose filibuster has long stood in the way of common sense reforms. But as the Salt Lake Tribune reported Wednesday, that eye-popping haul came during his 2012 presidential campaign to unseat Barack Obama; Romney has not appeared to receive any NRA money for his 2018 Senate campaign or his 2024 reelection campaign. “No one owns Sen. Romney’s vote, as evidenced by his record of independence in the Senate,” Romney spokesperson Arielle Mueller told the outlet.
Fond Farewells: We Say Goodbye to 14 Departing TV Series
Yet the slow cooker that so cruelly took patriarch Jack’s life remains at large. INSECURE (HBO)Issa Rae’s love letter to Los Angeles was as sure-footed as its characters were shaky, confidently following Rae’s Issa and Yvonne Orji’s Molly as they fumbled their way through adulthood. BETTER CALL SAUL (AMC)We could argue all day about whether Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould’s Breaking Bad spin-off eclipses the original. But that’s the appeal of Dead to Me, which will debut its long-awaited third and final season this year after a barrage of delays. No show was sillier (there’s a character named Dr. Amanda Baby) while skewering millennial myopia, peppering wild twists with uncomfortable truths.
The best of beauty looks from the Cannes Film Festival 2022
We’ve had the Oscars, the Met, and so it’s high time for the 75th Cannes Film Festival to take its turn on the red carpet. The Cannes Film Festival has always centred itself around the glamour of discovery: be it a reveal of prolific international films to come á la Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite and Hirokazu Koreeda’s Shoplifters, or witnessing a diverse blaze of A-list personalities to take the glam a notch up. The first day’s slew of looks included Deepika Padukone’s glistening gold set, complimenting her black-and-gold Sabyasachito sari for a red carpet moment that hallmarked her heritage. Also opting for a sliver of silver on her mane, was Miss France 2021: Amandine Petit. Judging from the line-up of films alone—think Koreeda’s Broker starring IU and Bae Doona as well as Irma Vep with Alicia Vikander—we’re expecting the best of beauty from the 75th Cannes Film Festival to only grow.

President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden Visit Texas to Honor Victims of the Uvalde Shooting
Today, President Joe Biden and first lady Dr. Jill Biden visited the town of Uvalde in Texas to pay their respects to the 19 children and two adults killed in a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School on Tuesday. The Bidens arrived on Air Force One to an airfield in San Antonio, where they greeted Texas governor Greg Abbott on the tarmac in a meeting that has already drawn opprobrium online. After the presidential convoy made its journey to Uvalde, Abbott was greeted with a chorus of boos. The first port of call for the presidential couple, however, was a makeshift memorial outside of the school, near the site visited by Meghan Markle earlier this week. The Bidens placed a bouquet in front of the memorial before pausing at a series of photos of the victims and embracing the school’s principal, Mandy Gutierrez.

The Power of “And” Can Help You Embrace the Complicated Nature of People
That’s why I love “and.” It helps relieve the stress of cognitive dissonance and allows for a richer experience. Using “and” can instantly open your heart to compassion and help you to see people in a new light. Create safety while calling others to greatnessThe word “and” can help people talk about tough topics and ultimately do hard things together. I combine “yes” plus “and,” which opens me to possibilities without feeling like I have to take them all on. Knowing and accepting that many things are true at the same time makes living in the mess a lot more peaceful.
Has the chancellor done enough to save the UK from recession?
This time last year, things were looking good for the UK. That in turn would mean fewer new jobs being available, followed by higher unemployment, leading to a further squeeze on spending, and perhaps even a recession. The chancellor handed money to every household to help cope with rising energy bills, with the poorest households getting the most (see here for more details). But in all, says Paul Dales of Capital Economics, the chancellor has pumped the equivalent of about £10.3bn into the UK economy with this move, made up of £15.3bn being given to households, and £5bn taxed away from oil and gas producers. For a start, it makes a consumption-driven recession less likely, which is good news.
‘Sister Wives’: Janelle Brown, Kids Enjoy Hike Without Kody
Sister Wives star Janelle Brown enjoyed a hike with her kids, Gabe Brown, Savanah Brown and Hunter Brown, but noticeably missing was the patriarch of the plural family, Kody Brown.

Janelle was one of the first of Kody’s wives to move onto the family’s Coyote Pass land in Arizona. While Kody initially had plans to build a large home where he, Janelle and other wives Meri Brown, Christine and Robyn Brown would live, the idea was shot down by the spouses. At this time, it’s unclear how the Brown family intends to move forward now that Christine is out of the picture.
Manhattanhenge Is Back for Picture-Perfect Sunsets on New York’s Grid
It can produce, when the weather cooperates, four of the most striking sunsets of the year in New York City. The name is a New Yorker-style nod to Stonehenge, the ancient rock structure in the English countryside that aligns with the sunsets and sunrises during the summer and winter solstices. In contrast, the grid of New York City was not designed with sunsets in mind, but it has ended up functioning in a similar manner. An event like Manhattanhenge can halt the entire borough, beckoning people to celebrate an otherwise normal daily sunset. As if New York couldn’t become any more magical, the sunsets of Manhattanhenge illuminate the streets with a glow of deep tangerine and bubble gum pink, transforming the bustling streets into a place to pause and say, “wow.”
The Atrocity of American Gun Culture
In the interim, there were other mass shootings, in Indiana, Washington State, Florida, California, Louisiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and elsewhere.

It happens every time there is a mass shooting.” That Cruz used the phrase “every time there is a mass shooting” spoke volumes about how commonplace these abominations have become. The most visible people refusing to see these things as political happen to be elected to political office.

And I don’t really know how to square those two things.

After a Late Red Flag, a Thrilling Sprint to the Indy 500 Finish
What seemed like an easy, sure victory turned into one of the most dramatic finishes in recent memory, as Marcus Ericsson held on after a late restart to win the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500. With five laps to go, Ericsson, a 31-year-old Swedish driver, held a nearly three-second lead on Pato O’Ward, the 23-year-old Mexican driver for Arrow McLaren SP. But a late crash by Jimmie Johnson, the seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion who was racing in his first Indianapolis 500, brought out a red flag that stopped the race with four laps left. In a two-lap shootout after the restart, Ericsson wove left and right to disrupt the slipstream and fight off an intense charge from O’Ward to take the checkered flag. “I knew the car was fast enough, but it was still hard,” Ericsson told NBC after the race.

Ronnie Hawkins, Rockabilly Road Warrior, Is Dead at 87
Ronnie Hawkins, who combined the gregarious stage presence of a natural showman and a commitment to turbocharged rockabilly music in a rowdy career that spanned more than a half-century, died on Sunday. His daughter Leah confirmed his death. She did not specify where he died or the cause, though she said he had been quite ill.Mr. Hawkins started performing in his native Arkansas in the late 1950s and became a legendary roadhouse entertainer based in Canada in the 1960s, his music forever rooted in the primal rock ‘n’ roll rhythms of Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry. For all of his success, his biggest claim to fame was not the music he produced but the musicians he attracted and mentored. His backup musicians of the early 1960s, Levon Helm, Robbie Robertson, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel and Rick Danko, went on to form the Band, which backed Bob Dylan and became one of the most admired and influential bands in rock history.

A Big Lie in a New Package
“I want to make very clear that we’re not suggesting that the ballots that were cast were illegal ballots. A repeated contention of the documentary is that getting paid to deliver other peoples’ ballots is illegal in every state. The swing states where Ms. Phillips and Ms. Engelbrecht focused their research do ban the delivery of ballots on behalf of others, with some exceptions. But elections officers in 16 other states surveyed by The Times said their states did not prohibit people getting paid to deliver a ballot. Mr. Phillips and Ms. Engelbrecht’s case is largely built on cellphone data.
Winning the Skies Without Losing Your Lunch: Filming ‘Top Gun: Maverick’
Before Tom Cruise signed on to star in the original “Top Gun,” he asked to take a test flight in a jet. Zipping at 6.5 G’s — more than twice the G-forces some astronauts endure during rocket launches — Cruise felt the blood drain from his head. Cruise continued to fly so fast, and so frequently, that he learned to squeeze his thighs and abs to stay conscious.

Leon Draisaitl's Playoff Brilliance Can't Be Ignored
After setting an NHL record for assists in a single playoff series, Leon Draisaitl has shown that an ankle sprain can't keep him down. Sergei Belski-USA TODAY SportsConnor McDavid’s overtime winner will go down as one of the greatest moments in Edmonton Oilers playoff history, and rightfully so. With that assist, Draisaitl set a new NHL record for assists in a single playoff series, totalling 15 throughout the series against the Flames. McDavid was leading the Oilers in points, and the Flames were looking for a way to slow him down. He stepped aside and gave way to the newcomers, Evander Kane, who's leading the Oilers in playoff scoring and Zach Hyman, the only Oiler in franchise history to score in each game in a playoff series.

Here’s the GIF That Joc Pederson Says Ticked Off Tommy Pham Last Year
The feud between Giants outfielder Joc Pederson and Reds outfielder Tommy Pham is one of the strangest feuds baseball has ever seen. And on Sunday, one Twitter user discovered a gif that played a significant role in all the absurdity. It was reported Friday that before the two teams played each other Pham slapped Pederson and was eventually suspended three games for the altercation. Pederson said he sent a gif in the group chat mocking the Padres, the team Pham played for last season, and Pham didn’t take too kindly to it. Pederson was mocking the team’s disappointing season, and it looks like Pham is the type to hold grudges.
Nottingham Forest Earns Promotion to Premier League With Playoff Win
LONDON (AP) — Two-time European Cup winner Nottingham Forest is back in the top flight of English soccer for the first time since 1999. Forest beat Huddersfield 1–0 in the Championship playoff final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday to secure its return to the English Premier League next season. Huddersfield, which had two strong penalty appeals waved away in the second half, finished the regular season in third place—one spot ahead of Forest—as it sought a first return to the Premier League since relegation in 2019. Forest is a big name in English soccer, having won back-to-back European Cups, in 1979 and ’80, under Brian Clough. “He’s come in and he’s given us that hope, given us that belief and he’s just been so nice.

Sergio Perez Becomes First Mexican Driver to Win Monaco Grand Prix
MONACO (AP) — Sergio Pérez rebounded from Red Bull team orders that denied him a chance to race for the win one week ago to pick up his first Formula One win of the season in the rain-marred Monaco Grand Prix. Although Leclerc finished the race for the first time in four tries, he finished fourth and allowed reigning world champion Max Verstappen to extend his lead in the points standings. Carlos Sainz Jr. finished second for Ferrari and Verstappen was third for Red Bull. But the win went to Verstappen's teammate just one week after Pérez was ordered to cede the lead to Verstappen during the Spanish Grand Prix. “You dream of winning this, and after your home race, there is no place more special to win,” Pérez said after waving the Mexican flag.
Monaco Grand Prix: Three Takeaways As Sergio Perez Makes F1 History
Pérez made Monaco Grand Prix history as he became the first Mexican driver to win the jewel of Formula One. And, he is the most successful Mexican driver in F1’s history after winning his third race. And these points have been sizable for him—Russell sits fourth in the driver standings, just one point ahead of Sainz. IMAGO / ANPHere’s three takeaways from the Monaco Grand Prix, where a timer determined the race instead of the number of laps. We also need to continue to develop our race car.
Celtics vs. Heat: Seven Questions on Game 7
Celtics vs. Heat. It may not be more simple for Miami in Game 7 than getting a great Butler game as opposed to a mediocre one. Nothing will be easy for the Celtics on Sunday night against a confident Heat team that features several gutsy veterans who won’t be rattled by the moment. And while the Heat have pushed them, for large stretches of this series Boston has controlled the action on the floor. I also worry slightly about an emotional letdown for the Heat after the rush of that Game 6 win.
Video of Tommy Pham Slapping Joc Pederson Has Leaked
Reds outfielder Tommy Pham slapped Giants outfielder Joc Pederson on Friday night, leading to one of the strangest sports feuds in recent memory. The video shows Pham approaching Pederson and one other member of the Giants, and slapping Pederson before both teams converged to separate the two. The issue between the team seemed to stem from whether Pederson properly used Injured Reserve on Jeff Wilson despite Wilson not actually being on IR. Pham also claimed that Pederson “disrespected” the Padres in a group text, which prompted Pederson to show the media the specific text he sent. Pederson said Pham dropped out of the league in the middle of the season in part due to this issue.
Rafael Nadal Wins Five-Set Thriller, Advances to French Open Quarterfinals
PARIS (AP) — By the end of only the third five-setter Rafael Nadal has played in 112 career French Open matches, as the sun and temperature descended and the chants of “Ra-fa! Nadal got through his first serious test of this French Open by edging No. Djokovic leads 30-28, although Nadal has a 7-2 advantage at the French Open. 1-ranked Djokovic, twice the title winner at the French Open, is just one behind Nadal in the total Slam count, tied with Roger Federer at 20. “It’s a huge challenge,” Djokovic said about the prospect of facing Nadal, “and probably the biggest one that you can have here in Roland Garros.
Tuskegee Coach Says He Got Death Threats Over Nick Saban Comments
Tuskegee football coach and athletic director Reginald Ruffin suggested last week that Alabama should schedule more games vs. HBCU programs. Ruffin said Wednesday he received death threats for those comments. “To see those comments over what was misconstrued from my post—my post was not to suggest to coach [Saban], to tell coach or demand coach or tell him what to do,” Ruffin told HBCU Sports’s Kendrick Marshall. Ruffin’s post suggested Alabama rotate games between HBCUs in Alabama, which he thinks would be good for both sides. He also added he wants HBCUs to have more exposure against the best teams, especially against teams that are in the same state.
Barclays Center Stampede Injures 10 After False Reports of Active Shooter
At least 10 people were injured at Barclays Center in Brooklyn early Sunday morning when a stampede erupted due to a suspected active shooter in the arena. Barclays played host to the boxing match between Gervonta “Tank” Davis and Rolando Romero, which began and ended after midnight. After the match ended, fans were filing out of the arena when they heard a loud noise that sounded like gunshots. Fans rushed out of the stadium believing they were in danger. According to TMZ, a rumor started that an active shooter was in the area, which further intensified the stampede, leading to multiple injuries.
Sadio Mane Expected to Leave Liverpool, per Reports
Liverpool star Sadio Mané is set to leave the club this summer, according to multiple reports. The Athletic’s James Pearce reported that Mané is expected to leave the club, although no deal has been announced amid reports that a move to Bayern Munich is imminent. Mané, whose current contract with Liverpool has one year remaining, said last week that he would announce a decision on his future shortly after the Champions League final, which Liverpool lost to Real Madrid on Saturday. While at Liverpool, Mané won the Premier League title in 2019–20 along with the Champions League in 2018–19. Along with winning the League Cup and FA Cup with Liverpool, Mané also helped lead Senegal to World Cup qualification once again at Egypt’s expense.
Mike Breen Won’t Call Celtics-Heat Game 7 Due to COVID-19, per Report
ESPN announcer Mike Breen tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss tonight’s Game 7 between the Celtics and Heat, The New York Posts’s Andrew Marchand reports. Marchand added that ESPN hopes Breen will clear protocols by Thursday, when the NBA Finals is scheduled to begin. Mark Jones will announce the game with Mark Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy in Breen’s place. Breen has been ESPN’s main NBA play-by-play since 2006, when he took over for Al Michaels, having been the voice of the NBA Finals for every year in that span. Sunday’s game will be the last NBA game until Thursday, which should give Breen enough time to return for Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
Heat Player Says Draymond Green ‘Broke the Code’ With Comment Thursday Night

We’re going to play Boston. That’s who we’re going to play,” Green said. More NBA Coverage:For more Miami Heat coverage, go to Inside The Heat
8 Gardening and Plant-Based Video Games for Spring
One of my favorite games of all time, Stardew Valley uses a nostalgic, pixel artwork style and starts with the inheritance of a family farm. Choose between plots of land with environmental distinctions like the riverland farm, the forest farm, and the beach farm. When playing Stardew Valley, I’m often more interested in exploring the mines and romancing the nearby villagers, but you can also grow numerous crops on the land. New players who want to prioritize gardening in the game can learn useful strategies online. For example, ezlilyy on YouTube has advice for building efficient greenhouses and Wickey can show you how to cultivate the highly profitable ancient fruit.
Everything You Need to Know About Monkeypox
While the current monkeypox outbreak will be the first time many have heard of the disease, the virus is thought to have been infecting people for centuries, possibly even millennia. The monkeypox rash is quite distinct—skin eruptions that begin flat and red, before starting to blister and fill with white pus. Monkeypox typically affects people who have come into contact with infected animals—usually rodents that are capable of harboring the virus. In the current outbreak it appears that sexual contact has provided one route of transmission—most likely through skin-to-skin contact. An example of this was in 2003, when monkeypox reached the US after infected animals were shipped from Ghana to Illinois.
The 11 Best Portable Chargers for All of Your Devices
Unfortunately, getting that maximum rate also depends on your device, the standards it supports, and the charging cable you use. Pass-Through: If you want to charge your power bank and use it to charge another device simultaneously, it will need pass-through support. The Nimble, GoalZero, Elecjet, Biolite, Mophie, and Zendure portable chargers listed support pass-through charging. We would advise caution when using pass-through, as it can also cause portable chargers to heat up. If your power bank has a larger capacity than 27,000 mAh, you should check with the airline.
Let’s Get Our Shit Together—Literally
If a bear shits in the woods and a scientist is there to collect it, where will it be stored? Scientists could make deposits or check out specimens from a diverse collection of casks and vials—the world’s most comprehensive collection of preserved poo. Its walls would be smooth and cool, and its visitor log would read like a who’s who of biological science. Marine mammal protection laws prohibit harassment, hunting, capturing, collecting, or killing whales, so the study of live whales is very much the study of their poo. Marine ecologist Matthew Savoca snags whale poop to study microplastic pollution and recently published research in Nature showing that baleen whales eat therefore and poop up to three times more than we thought.

Elon Musk’s Twitter Plans Would Mean Less Free Speech for Many
Despite his insistence that he will make Twitter a haven for free speech, Musk’s vision for content moderation is to comply with local laws. But protections for free speech are weaker in many other countries, including Turkey, India, and Russia. A standard of only allowing what is permitted by law would result in less free speech on Twitter, not more. “Twitter is one of few spaces in Russia for free expression,” says Natalia Krapiva, technology legal counsel at Access Now. “In places like Russia, laws are intentionally broad and vague, which means the government can choose how and when they want to enforce it.”

Strategist Circular: 10 Things That Delighted Us Last Week
Strategist contributor Diksha Basu decided to buy herself the Swagtron folding kick scooter in order to keep up with her 3- and 5-year-olds. She felt a little silly riding on it at first, but her kids were “absolutely delighted to have me zipping along beside them,” and soon enough she found herself also using it to get to the grocery store (it has two little hooks where you can hang bags), the coffee shop, a restaurant to meet a friend, and even to the train. Since it folds down, Basu can pick it up and “carry it under one arm without troubling others, or yourself, too much,” eliminating the headache of finding a place to lock it up outside.

How Rumors of an Active Shooter at Barclays Left 10 People Injured
Soon, rumors of an active shooter spread throughout the crowd, causing chaos and a stampede that police say sent ten people to the hospital. Early reports suggested that there had been gunfire just outside of Barclays, with a Barclays Center security supervisor reportedly telling ESPN that someone with a gun was seen just outside the stadium. “I was so confused, my adrenaline was pumping,” Joshua, a teen who was on an escalator when he heard the loud noises, told ABC. Scary moment as crowds pour back into Barclays Center, my fear was a shooting but those fears proved unfounded. Some reports suggest it came from outside Barclays Center, but ABC reported that police believed the noises to have been a trash can kicked over by a pumped-up fan.
Theory: Top Gun: Maverick Is (Mostly) a Death Dream
Photo: Paramount PicturesTom Cruise’s character dies at the start of Top Gun: Maverick. But it’s more fun to imagine the film is a death dream, an Incident at Owl Creek Bridge fantasy taking place in the instant before Maverick blinks out of existence high above the Mojave Desert. This gives Maverick just enough time for one last flight, and one last attempt to save the program from getting scrapped. Though what really makes this theory so satisfying is that the unspoken theme of Top Gun: Maverick, like all recent additions to Cruise’s filmography, is that Tom Cruise will never die. Top Gun: Maverick may be wonderfully absurd, but its absurdity is that of someone dreaming impossible dreams right before they burn up in the atmosphere.
All the Tom Cruise Movies Top Gun: Maverick Basically Rolls into One
All of that Cruiseyness runs deep in the veins of Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to 1986’s Top Gun. Top Gun: Maverick is basically just Top Gun again. Look, when Tom Cruise, also an EP of Top Gun: Maverick, promises the world he’s going to make another Top Gun movie, he really means he’s going to make another Top Gun. Top Gun: Maverick is Risky BusinessAdmittedly this is a bit of a stretch since Top Gun: Maverick is not about a prostitution business or trying to get into Princeton or contending with Guido the Killer Pimp. Top Gun: Maverick is, at its essence, a film that asks us to believe the world revolves around Tom Cruise.
Custom Mosaics Enjoy a Renaissance During Pandemic-spurred Home Design Boom
And the mosaic — an ancient art form popularized during the Roman Empire — is experiencing something of a renaissance amid the pandemic-spurred home design boom. “People aren’t scared of color anymore.”New Ravenna stocks more than 1,000 made-to-measure stone and glass mosaics. Geode, a hand-cut stone mosaic from New Ravenna, is among the made-to-measure designs offered by the Virginia-based company. (Made-to-measure mosaics represent 70 percent of orders; New Ravenna also has a ready-to-ship line.) Bird motifs are particularly popular at the moment and costumers are requesting very bold color changes to existing patterns.
The Mass Shooter’s Other Tool
Even if the killer in Uvalde did not wear the vest as intended, he joins a growing line of American mass murderers who have turned to body armor to make their attacks more deadly. According to a mass-shooting database compiled by The Violence Project, 21 mass shooters over the last 40 years in attacks “not attributable to any other underlying criminal activity or commonplace circumstance” have worn some form of body armor. The Buffalo shooter knew this. With body armor sales to the public surging in the U.S., police have had to adapt their tactics. “Center of mass used to say the torso, so from the navel up to the shoulders, across the shoulders,” he says.
Wilco Advertised Its New Album as ‘Country.’ It’s Not, Exactly, But There’s a Reason We Still Care About Genre (Column)
So now that the Wilco-loving world has heard “Cruel Country,” which came out this weekend, does it actually sound like a country album, or most people’s idea of one? That doesn’t mean that fans should start a class-action suit against Wilco for false advertising — or that “Cruel Country” isn’t one of the year’s best albums. As good as those songs are, “Cruel Country” is at its most remarkable when it moves on from the topical subject of nationalism into timeless matters of universalism. In most of these songs, Tweedy sounds less concerned with America’s sins than his own. It’s ineffably beautiful, the way Tweedy pulls it off, and as Eric Church once sang: Put that in your country song.

One particularly high profile episode will focus on Qui-Gon Jinn, the Jedi master that Liam Neeson portrayed in “The Phantom Menace.” And on the panel announcing the series, producer Dave Filoni revealed that Neeson himself would be voicing the character. “Oh, I think so, yeah, yeah, yeah, I think so … if it was a film,” Neeson said.

‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Is Really All About Tom Cruise: Movie Star — and That’s Why It Works
(Tom Cruise initially turned down the role because he was afraid the movie would end up being “Flashdance in the sky,” a reference to Bruckheimer and Simpson’s then-recent runaway smash.) Once he did say yes, Tom Cruise spent months driving down to the pilot school at Miramar before production started, soaking up the atmosphere and taking classes. Top Gun: Maverick is, at its core, a flyboy-in-winter tale. But Top Gun: Maverick is not an ode to mindless combat, even if it brings back the “if you think up there, you die” motto of the original.

Sidhu Moose Wala, an Indian rapper turned politician whose songs racked up more than 4 billion views on YouTube in less than four years, was shot and killed on Sunday while driving near his home in India. “Today, a young Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala was gunned down in a state-sponsored murder. Moose Wala was among the list of 122 politicians who had their bodyguard teams removed or scaled back this weekend. Law enforcement officials in Punjab confirmed that Moose Wala still had access to two armed security guards but had chosen not to travel with police protection on Sunday. Crowds gathered at the Mansa hospital where Moose Wala had been taken following the shooting, with protests against the state government breaking out.
I Have Seen the Death of Culture, and It Was Anna Delvey’s Art Show
The wire money is coming, baby.”The voice on the loudspeaker is from an Anna Delvey impersonator, but a few minutes later, the real Anna speaks in a prerecorded message. Dozens of photographers clamor to shoot the models holding the art, even though no one else in the room is paying much attention to it. Anna Delvey is a convicted criminal and scam artist who, in pretending to be a Bavarian heiress raising venture capital for an arts space, humiliated and ruined the lives of innumerable people. “Anna Delvey is the people’s chick,” Stephen James The Artist, a Zack Morris lookalike clad head-to-toe in a tie-dye sweatsuit he identified as “Lenny Vuitton,” proudly proclaimed. She served her time,” says Founders Art Club cofounder Chris Martine, when I spoke with him the day after the show.
‘Fuck, This Is the Real Thing’: Chris Blackwell Remembers Making Bob Marley’s ‘Catch a Fire’
In that era, there were radio stations that played only rock music and R&B stations that played only Black music. And neither category of station played reggae. What they played me was what became Catch a Fire, their first Island album. We were going to produce a different kind of Wailers record. I was extremely disappointed, but the prevailing attitude was: “That’s good for a reggae record.” My retort: “Don’t think of it as a reggae record.
Monaco F1 Champ Sergio Perez Reveals Surprising Playlist He Listens to Before Every Big Race
Red Bull Racing star Sergio Perez took home the checkered flag at the Monaco Grand Prix Sunday, and the new champ’s big win could be credited to some good strategy, good driving and good music. “My playlists are full of Latin and romantic music,” he told Rolling Stone, during a recent promo tour for his new partnership with Patrón Tequila. The driver says it was a no-brainer to team up with Patrón when the tequila maker came calling. And surprisingly for me,” Perez continues, “he replied that he had never been invited to an F1 garage before. Related: How to Watch Every F1 Race OnlineFor now, Perez is celebrating his Monaco win, presumably with some Patrón.
There Are a Million Reasons to Get An Abortion. This Was Mine.
We know what a country without legal abortion will look like, because we have seen it before. We know what a country without legal abortion will look like, because we have seen it before. I didn’t want to have an abortion, but I also knew that I couldn’t not have one. Abortion rights advocates like to frame the conversation around reproductive rights as a choice, but for me, there very clearly was not one. I spent the months following my abortion trying to get to the point that I felt I could safely carry a pregnancy to term.
Steve Earle Is Chasing Broadway Success — By Trying to Write a Mainstream Country Song
It’s not what anyone would expect to hear from Earle these days, especially when we’re supposed to be discussing Jerry Jeff, his new tribute album to Seventies Texas legend Jerry Jeff Walker. How, then, did Jerry Jeff, which sounds like the most effortless, free-flowing Earle album in years, come to be? “I was way closer to Townes and Guy, but I never would have known about them if it weren’t for Jerry Jeff,” Earle says. “The first time I ever heard a Guy Clark song, Jerry Jeff Walker was singing it. Almost everything else is questionable.”Earle relishes the chance to talk about Jerry Jeff and share stories about another bygone legend from his past.
To Understand Elon Musk, You Have to Understand This ’60s Sci-Fi Novel
But while he may take inspiration from science fiction, as Jill Lepore has observed, he’s a bad reader of the genre. He idolizes Kim Stanley Robinson and Iain M. Banks while ignoring their socialist politics, and he overlooks major speculative traditions such as feminist and Afrofuturist science fiction. Like many Silicon Valley CEOs, he primarily sees science fiction as a repository of cool inventions waiting to be created. Musk engages with most science fiction in a superficial manner, but he is a very careful reader of one author: Robert A. Heinlein. He named Heinlein’s The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress from 1966 as one of his favorite novels.
What if the Wind and Sunshine Really Belonged to All of Us?
Some on the left have already suggested something slightly different from what Biden has offered: nationalizing wind farms, solar farms, transmission infrastructure, and even the whole fossil fuel sector (in order to retire it). Private wind rights, in short, tilt the energy transition toward elites—and give everyone else a reason not to support it. A legislature only has to “sever” wind rights from land rights. Why should wind rights and land rights belong together in any case? Wind rights could rest with the town, the county—or with an entirely new unit bounded by the viewshed, which might help smooth the path for offshore wind farms.
The Wild Life of William Morgan, Yanqui Comandante Turned Cuban Counterrevolutionary
“Cuba shipped a million dollars’ worth of frogs’ legs to the US last year,” William Morgan, an American expat, declared shortly after the 1959 Cuban Revolution. The story of William Morgan is an eccentric tale of dead ends, abandonment, revolution, and counterrevolution. From the Circus to the Revolution William Morgan was raised in Toledo, Ohio, in the upper-class neighborhood of West End. The Revolutionary Directorate, the Popular Socialist Party, the Authentic Organization, Morgan’s Second Front — all were fighting in the Escambray Mountains. Meanwhile, William Morgan wedded his Cuban lover, Olga Rodríguez, both clad in their olive military garb.
Will Sinn Féin’s Wins Lead to a United Ireland?
To the south, polls indicate that Sinn Féin is the most popular political party in the Republic of Ireland. As one BBC commentator pointed out, Northern Ireland was “literally designed” to prevent a nationalist victory. The hard-line Traditional Unionist Voice and comparatively timid Ulster Unionist Party picked up 7.6 percent and 11.2 percent, respectively. Adjacent to them is the purportedly neutral Alliance Party, which enjoyed a surge in votes, mostly from affluent areas surrounding Belfast. A unionist identity that means more than mere symbolic unity with Britain can hold on to its Britishness after constitutional change.
Today, Colombia Votes on a Shift to the Left
Ask anyone in Latin America and they’ll tell you: Colombian politics skew hard toward the right. Colombia’s hard-right turn is associated with one name in particular: former president Álvaro Uribe and his political movement, uribismo. And yet Colombia’s corrupt and servile political oligarchy stands in stark contrast to the courage of the Colombian people themselves. The Fog of War Colombian and international media have played a leading role in portraying the Colombian people as politically conservative. And even as both doctrines have waned, their lingering effects continue to damage the exercise of left-wing politics, freedom of thought, and social movements in Colombia.
THE ANGRY ARAB: Lebanon’s Hung Parliament
In the 128-seat Lebanese Parliament, 65 seats are needed for a majority. But no party won an outright majority. Since the Arab uprisings of 2011, Western media have become largely uniform, with the dispatches of various correspondents replicating one another. On the Shiite front — and Hizbullah is a Shiite political party, through and through — the party won all the seats it sought, every one of them. The Saudi-funded groups (and Western-sponsored “change” candidates) harped on the matter of disarming Hizbullah, which has no bearing on the domestic Lebanese political scene.

365 Days of Climate Awareness 289 – The Siberian Traps
Beneath the ocean they form part of the global spreading ridge system, and are erupting more or less continually. There is evidence of such ancient volcanoes in the United States—the smaller Columbia River basalts of Oregon from 200 MYA—and Yellowstone is a live modern example, though it’s likely significantly smaller than the ancient Siberian vent(s). Modern research shows, however, that the Siberian eruptions might have been rather less viscous than most eruptions of this sort, with a greater pyroclastic, ash cloud component, which would have caused worse immediate climate disruption. Current theory assigns several levels of cause to the Siberian eruptions. First was the intense global cooling due to the ash clouds from repeated eruptions.
Lukewarm take on guns, because I hate hot takes
When people lack confidence in the police, they are that much more likely to acquire guns if they don’t feel safe in their neighborhood. The Founding Fathers felt that guns were necessary, but they didn’t mean for everyone to have a gun. If we make proposals that gun owners consider reasonable, like red flag laws or raising the age limit on rifle purchases, then we can get moderate gun owners to break off from the MAGAhadeen. Just about every honest gun owner can tell you that there are certain people who just shouldn’t have guns. I think that there should be a buddy system set up for gun owners and prospective gun buyers.
How Russians closed the sitcom gap by adapting 'The Nanny' and 'Married ... with Children'

An Introduction to Mania and Hypomania
The other diaries can be read as well, but they are more about depression than about the topic being covered today, which is mania and hypomania. The best way to introduce bipolar disorder is to tackle some myths about mania and hypomania. Truth: While there are periods of good moods, mania can also bring increased irritability and increased reckless behavior and actions. Truth: Bipolar symptoms fall into an easily grouped category of actions and emotions. Those who are depressed generally self-harm, while those with mania have the ability through reckless decisions to harm others as well as themselves.
I joke that storms come to me. But they do.
Run downstairs, because if there is large hail, the storm has very strong winds keeping them aloft. I can see the large hail stones lit by the lightning. I grabbed a handful of the hail stones.

What if it were ANY other minority? ANY OTHER MINORITY?
Hint: itz not Black people? Hint: itz not Muslims. What if 99% of mass shooters were Native Americans? Hint: Itz not Native Americans either. A minority with such entitlement that it thinks of itself as the majority.
The subtle but indicative meaning of gun control laws
There is more to reducing school shootings than only passing laws to ban assault weapons and ammunition. There is also the subtle, but significant message a society gives out with gun control laws. Both England and Australia created tough gun control laws when they experienced school shootings, which not only created tough gun control legislation, but also strongly sent the message that this must stop, mass killing children is intolerable. They both have not experienced schools shootings since, because not only are there tough gun control laws now, they have sent a message to all citizens that killing children in this country is beyond the pale, a line that this country will not allow to be crossed. It is this outspoken social meaning, in addition to legislation, that inhibits future shooters from considering these heinous acts.
Let's regulate rock throwing

You may not agree with the idea of throwing rocks, and you may never throw a rock in your life for any reason, but many people will continue to throw rocks. People decided that rock throwing could lead to conquest and we have a race to develop the biggest fastest rock thrower and make as many of them as we can. I like rock throwing machines.

They are IMPOTENT.
The word is IMPOTENT. It means “unable to take effective action”...”helpless or powerless”. It is the most descriptive word to use when talking about Republican party’s stance toward the crisis of mass-shootings. Words are important, and this is the word that communicates best to the people. Republicans are IMPOTENT.
As of today there have been 17,673 gun deaths in the US this year. What is different in the US that makes us so much more likely to suffer from gun violence? Australia and the UK have stricter gun laws and their rate of gun deaths are even lower. Gun deaths by suicide are included in the numbers above, as gun deaths by suicide exceed gun deaths by murder in the US. We can shut them down by being more organized and more determined to save lives through reasonable gun laws.
Buy a Gun?
Thoughts and PrayersI feel like I’m the worst nightmare for the Extreme Right-Wing Christian Coalition Conservative Gun Activist. And then tell me what laws surrounding guns that need to be repealed. Most of our current gun laws were written and supported by the NRA. How about funding the very government agency tasked with enforcing laws surrounding guns, the ATF? So realistically, in order to move the needle just a bit on gun laws, Democrats will need to pick up at least 12 new Senate seats this November.
Urban Ag for Community Health, Security and Resiliency
However, it has become clear that we cannot rely on fossil fuel dependent, mechanized and commidified agriculture to meet local food security needs, much less build community well being and resiliency. At this time, the federal government and big ag are neglecting local production. That is where community groups are stepping up to fill in present day nutrition gaps and push us towards more local food security. The Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture has been contributing to food production in Mid-Missouri for nearly a decade. They have done a tremendous job of not only improving local production, but also integrating their work with community needs.

In about 48 hours it will get real bad for RU
You know most of their contract soldiers contracts expire in 48 hours. I guess Putin could try and hold them there — but that will about do it for his ability to get any more contract soldiers — and boy talk about a morale problem. It is bloody and all that in the box — but great for UKR overall operational goals. They can just play defense and be able to hold off more than 3 times their numbers. I am way too old to care — and I just like to get to the point anyway at this point in my life.

The Right To Write About Melania
One of many pictures of Melania cozying up to Pence2) Political figures have power over citizens, which gives citizens the right to know who they are. Pulitzer Prize–winning Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan wrote a biography (The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump) and she says Trump sent Melania to interview VP candidates and she favored Pence who was last on Trump’s list, and Trump eventually chose Pence. Melania steers Trump to make political decisions that she wants, even when Trump doesn’t want to. Therefore, Melania doesn’t deserve special treatment. Everything I write about Melania is for the public good, and whether readers agree with me or not, that is my goal.

Nuclear attack on Ukraine unlikely, but Mitt Romney says U.S. should be prepared anyway
In the early ‘70s, however, Pentagon advisers began publicly worrying over the “threat” posed by Soviet civil defense measures. Serving on the committee with people who really knew what they were talking about wasn’t the first time I had thought seriously about nuclear war. At school, we had little idea what a nuclear war might entail since we’d been raised with “duck-and-cover” as our safeguard in case of attack. The potential of nuclear war had had a greater impact on popular perceptions by 1982. ••••••••••Below is a scanned version of the Boulder County Nuclear War Education Booklet (1982).

Ukraine update: As Russia presses in on Severodonetsk, other areas are open to counterattack
Even as a new brigade of Ukrainian forces trains in the west, President Volodomyr Zelenskyy has fretted over the exhaustion of forces in the east. Then some of those Russian forces were reportedly peeled off to deal with Ukrainian advances north and east of Kharkiv. Then more of those Russian forces were reportedly sent to assist in capturing Lyman and assaulting Severodonetsk. All of which results in a significant decrease in “density” of Russian forces near Izyum. x #Ukraine: Ukrainian forces in the East, using drone-dropped munitions, managed to destroy a Russian BTR-82A APC concealed next to buildings.

The Texas School Massacre Means Nothing to the Gun Lobby
The calls for action are backed up by polls that show again that a majority of Americans back comprehensive gun control legislation. In fact, in the last couple of years polls show that support for tougher gun laws have dropped. There hasn't been much movement in the states either to get tougher gun control laws. In his address following the Texas massacre, Biden demanded "When in God's name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby"? Sadly, even the monstrous Texas massacre won't make Congress grow the legs to do that.
How Georgia’s Latinx community is working to ‘out-organize’ voter suppression
Georgians went to the polls in record numbers during the May 24 primary ahead of the crucial 2022 midterm elections, despite renewed GOP efforts to suppress the votes of the state’s communities of color. Such laws disproportionately impact people in low-income communities and communities of color, and they are being passed at a moment when the power of communities of color to shape election outcomes is rapidly increasing. Case in point: Georgia’s Latinx community has grown by 30% over the past decade and now comprises 10% of the state’s population. In this on-the-ground report for our special series “Defending Democracy in the 2022 Midterm Elections,” TRNN’s Jaisal Noor and Jeffrey Moustache speak with organizers from the Georgia Alliance of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO), an advocacy group that helps Latinx voters unlock their political power, about how they are working to “out-organize voter suppression” by mobilizing and empowering the state’s Latinx community.

Infant formula crisis highlights breastfeeding barriers in Southern states
Despite efforts in recent weeks by the federal government to address the ongoing infant formula shortage, parents are still struggling to find formula. The Food and Drug Administration announced this week that nearly two million cans of infant formula from a United Kingdom-based company would arrive in the United States in the coming days. Earlier this month, producers of infant formula were allowed to speed up the manufacturing process, and the Biden administration called on state attorney generals to crack down on price gouging of formula, according to a White House statement. Those barriers are particularly high in the Black community and in Southern states, where breastfeeding rates are lower. There's also a geographic disparity, as Southern states overall have a lower rate of breastfeeding than the nation as a whole.
Want to Win a Union at Work? Here’s What the Amazon Labor Union Can Teach Us.
Once the two friends, Chris Smalls and Derrick Palmer, had the signatures they needed, they had to win the vote. But the hidden story of the largest single workplace union election victory in the country since 2008 is the overlooked, and underutilized, methods and tools ALU organizers deployed, far beyond free marijuana and TikTok trolling. They followed the nearly two dozen anti-union consultants around the facility, passing out disclosure forms showing their $3,200/day rates for “union avoidance” work. For example, one leader with the African Community Alliance of Staten Island used his connection with local soccer teams to encourage players who work for Amazon to support the union. The ALU shows that it’s still possible to win historic union elections, even under current federal rules.

Earlier this month, producers of infant formula were allowed to speed up the manufacturing process, and the Biden administration called on state attorney generals to crack down on price gouging of formula, according to a White House statement. Those barriers are particularly high in the Black community and in Southern states, where breastfeeding rates are lower. There’s also a geographic disparity, as Southern states overall have a lower rate of breastfeeding than the nation as a whole.
Gun Lobby Intervened Against a Republican’s Gun Law. Then He Lost His Seat.
In Colorado, a spokesperson for the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners called Wist “a sellout” on Friday and said the organization had no choice but to work against him. And I don’t think you’d really think that Indiana is a hard left state, by any means. So there’s a group called the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, a very active gun rights organization. Are the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners similar to the National Rifle Association? But in Colorado, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners is the gun rights group that seems to have the most sway.
Some Republicans Fume at Michigan GOP for Defending Candidates Busted for Fraud
After spending years pushing former President Donald Trump’s “Big Lie,” the Michigan Republican Party is defending its own candidates who were caught up in a massive fraud scheme. Paul Cordes, chief of staff of the Michigan Republican Party, told the board that disqualifying the candidates over fraudulent petition signatures would disenfranchise voters. “The Michigan Republican Party candidates ran garbage operations,” tweeted Stu Sandler, political director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee and former executive director of the Michigan GOP. “The fact the Michigan Republican Party is defending all this fraud is embarrassing.”Craig called Thursday’s outcome a “travesty” and vowed to file an “immediate appeal” to the courts. Fraud is fraud, and under Michigan law, candidates are required to submit a minimum of 15,000 lawfully collected signatures.
Starbucks Workers United Wins in US’s Most Anti-Union City
The Starbucks Workers United union campaign continues to produce astounding election wins week after week. Greenville Is the Most Anti-Union City in the StateGreenville is even more anti-union than the rest of South Carolina. Intrepid worker-organizers lead the Starbucks union campaign:After resisting the company’s anti-union onslaught, Starbucks Workers United won two NLRB elections in Buffalo in December 2021. If the campaign continues to spread and win, Starbucks Workers United might challenge Greenville’s reputation as the most anti-union city in the country.

Nobel Laureate Calls for Ending Intellectual Property Rules for COVID Vaccines
Social entrepreneur and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Muhammad Yunus on Saturday called for a comprehensive waiver of intellectual property rules for Covid-19 vaccines and treatments, declaring that “freeing” the technology “from profit and patent is the key” to a global health system that puts human lives above corporate profit. In an op-ed published Saturday in Stat news, Yunus — who’s previously joined with other Nobel laureates in pushing for an end to intellectual property barriers — pointed to the global inequality in access to vaccines. “Wealth is power,” wrote Yunus. And that means “removing barriers like intellectual property rules.”That needs to happen this month, he said, with world leaders taking a step they’ve so far refused to do in the pandemic—backing a comprehensive waiver of parts of the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement. He also called out the U.S. for backing a waiver solely on vaccines.
Val Kilmer Is Confirmed To Be a “Huge Part” of Disney+’s Willow Series
Disney’s Star Wars Celebration pep rally in Anaheim kicked off on in an unexpected way. The initial absence of Kilmer is not too surprising, given the actor’s current battle with throat cancer. Entertainment, executive producer Kasdan confirmed that, yes, Kilmer and his character, the Han Solo-ish rogue Madmartigan, is part of the new series. “Val’s a huge part of this, and the first conversation I had, when Warwick and I got the greenlight to do this, was with Val,” Kasdan said.

Caitlyn Jenner Reportedly Shocked By Kourtney Kardashian Wedding Snub
That’s where Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker tied the knot, with Beyoncé, Megan Fox, Machine Gun Kelly, Andrea Bocelli, Stefano Gabbana, and the extended Kardashian-Jenner crew in attendance. As reported by PageSix, family elder Caitlyn Jenner remains shocked (shocked!) There are, reportedly, no hard feelings held by Kourtney towards the Olympian and reality television sensation.

She had previously announced that she was proud of her family and their mark on reality television, and eager to watch the series continue.
Senator Ted Cruz Challenged By Gun Reform Activist At Restaurant: “Is That So Hard?”
Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz was confronted by a local gun reform activist while dining at an upscale restaurant on Friday night following his speech at the National Rifle Association convention in Houston. In his speech before the NRA, Cruz blasted the slaughter at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, that left 19 children and two teachers dead as “evil” while arguing against gun control. In a video shared on Twitter, Hernandez asked to take a picture with Cruz before challenging him on background checks following the mass shooting earlier in the week. When Cruz realized he had been duped, security came in to remove Hernandez, who yelled, “Nineteen children died! Ted Cruz, that’s on your hands!”Twitter content This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from.
Disney+ Adds Content Warning to Obi-Wan Kenobi Following Texas Massacre
Bloodless violence has been a part of the Star Wars franchise since Grand Moff Tarkin showed off the might of the Death Star by turning Alderaan into space dust. But as Obi-Wan Kenobi, the newest series from that galaxy far, far away made its debut this week on Disney+ and at Anaheim’s Star Wars Celebration pep rally, the timing wasn’t so hot for the first episode’s initial scene. The new Ewan McGregor-led show, which takes place after Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith and before Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope (e.g. Disney+ heard the complaints and took action, and the episode will now feature a content warning. But given the recent tragic shooting at a school in Texas, viewers may find the opening scene of episode 1 distressing.

America’s Elected Officials Don't Have an Answer For Gun Violence
How to describe the fresh, but familiar horror in Uvalde, Texas? How to index the names of the dead—19 school kids and two teachers, as of this writing—and of yet another mass killer, Salvador Ramos? Our leaders don’t seem to know; they, too, seemed to have more questions than answers. “Why do we keep letting this happen?” a rattled President Joe Biden asked in an address on the Robb Elementary School shooting Tuesday night. Is it to offer up “prayers” for round after round of victims, as Republicans—from state leaders like Texas Governor Greg Abbott to federal leaders like Texas Senator Ted Cruz—have done?

Have I gotten too old to continue my pre-pandemic life?

You’re not still searching.”MP: “Also, I have a problem, because now the world is really out there, huge, different races, different communities, different religions, different cultures. Nobody could really travel, we couldn’t get out there in the world and plug in, and usually there’s a reset period.

And after Covid, for me, people are divided into the ones who understood something and the ones who didn’t.
In The Age Of The Naked Dress, Why Are So Many Of Us Reluctant To Sunbathe Topless?
Being #OOO also encourages a bolder approach to baring a little more sun-kissed skin, but even in the Vogue office – where flesh-flaunting self-expression is encouraged – actually sunbathing topless appears to be one of fashion’s final taboos. Summer escapes encourage us to cast off the shackles of modern life: our inboxes, our social media feeds, our gym gear, our shapewear. But this general untethering does not always extend to the strings of our bikini top. Tabloid journalism has taught us that a celebrity caught topless is still at risk of personal embarrassment. In 2017, a judge awarded the Duchess 100,000 Euro in damages for the invasion of privacy, to be paid by the magazine and two photographers.

Dopamine-Inducing Watches Are A Key Jewellery Trend This Year
Hublot, a perpetual innovator in terms of materials, has used this to its advantage in terms of bringing colour into timekeeping.

Toulson, too, agrees with Pragnell that green is here to stay, adding, “Similarly, blue remains a popular choice. Beyond those two, orange is much more in evidence today – it lends itself to sports [and] diving watches as does yellow.

At the French Open, American Women Rise to the Challenge
Sure, when compared to these blockbuster match-ups, the women’s singles competition this year has felt a little more staid. (With Ash Barty’s retirement, Serena Williams’s hamstring injury, and Simona Halep knocked out in a surprise second-round defeat, it’s the 20-year-old Polish wunderkind and current world number one Iga Swiatek’s tournament to lose at this point.) But as always, those absences leave room for other talents to come to the fore—and surprisingly, a number of those advancing players are American. Surprising only because—despite a few exceptions, the most notable being Williams—American players have a tendency to struggle on clay courts, given they predominantly train on hard courts unlike many of their European peers. But within the tournament’s final 16, five are American players, after Madison Keys won the last third-round match against the Kazakhstani player Elena Rybakina yesterday evening.

In a Surprise Victory at Cannes, Ruben Östlund’s Triangle of Sadness Takes Home the Palme d’Or
Earlier this evening, at the closing ceremony of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the Palme d’Or was awarded to Triangle of Sadness, the latest social satire from the Swedish director Ruben Östlund. (Two of the director’s previous films, 2014’s Force Majeure and 2017’s The Square, which also won the Palme d’Or, served as razor-sharp indictments of contemporary masculinity and the greed of the cultural elite, respectively.) In Triangle of Sadness, Östlund turns his unflinching lens to the tantrums and whims of the super-rich in a black comedy that offered one of the festival’s most shocking gross-out moments. While Triangle of Sadness emerged as an early favorite among critics, many expected the jury to go with a safer choice. The race to the Palme d’Or at this year’s festival proved one of the most unpredictable in recent memory, with no single film emerging as a clear frontrunner.

Product returns are wasteful for companies and the planet. Here’s how to change that
Carey School of Business, I believe the returns process as it exists today is unnecessarily wasteful. So why are companies turning a blind eye to waste in the returns process? In addition to losing out on potential profits, a wasteful returns process reflects poorly on brand image. Returns need to be a priority, and profitability and sustainability need to be approached as complementary rather than opposing goals. With a few thoughtful changes, companies can start to build a returns process that will be better for both profits and the planet.
This is how mass shootings affect our brains, even if we aren’t directly harmed
I am a trauma and anxiety researcher and clinician, and I know that the effects of such violence reach millions. First, the immediate survivors It is important to understand that no two people experience such horrific exposure in the same way. advertisementThe effect on those close by, or arriving later PTSD can develop not only through personal exposure to trauma but also via exposure to others’ severe trauma. That means we learn fear and experience terror through exposure to the trauma and fear of others. While victims and potential victims try to run away from an active shooter, the police, firefighters, and paramedics rush to the danger zone.
This is the reason you’re losing your best people according to brain science
Not only do you feel a rush of reward signals for being chosen over others for your abilities, you also get to complete a task which provides a second rush of reward signals for the achievement of a job well done. Status at work can deliver a double-dose of feel-good emotions, so it’s no surprise status junkies end up being overachievers. That sweet brain candy turns into a fiery response and the brain signals trigger a much stronger fight or flight response than the feel-good emotions. This happens because fairness, like status, is another domain of social experience that activates strong threat and reward signals and drives behavior . advertisementadvertisementWhile status reward signals make us feel good, fairness threat triggers are even stronger.
A new method to differentiate between genetic mutations could lead to better cancer treatments
Estimating how likely a mutation causes disease by how frequently it appears in a genome is common for small genetic changes called single-nucleotide variants (SNVs). However, this process breaks down for genetic changes across longer strands of DNA called structural variants (SVs). Compared to much simpler SNVs, SVs have higher error rates in detection. Our method leverages this strategy by searching through raw data from thousands of DNA samples for any evidence supporting specific SV. Using our method, we scanned the SVs identified in prior cancer studies and found that thousands of SVs previously associated with cancers also appear in normal healthy samples.
The surprising ways technology can increase green space in cities
With new technologies, we can plan and monitor these urban “green spaces” better than ever before. It is, however, an open question as to how much green space a city ought to have. Green landscaping The big question is therefore what kind of green space do we want? advertisementIf urban planners become more aware of the potential of digital technology, then urban green spaces should have a bright future. However, designing the optimal green space that we want for our cities may also call for a deeper future collaboration between urban planners and engineers.
Why the cryptocurrency price collapse offers hope for slowing climate change
The amount of computing power dedicated to this effort is referred to as the network’s hash rate. With the bitcoin price falling, the financial incentive to waste energy for mining bitcoin should be lower. But, surprisingly, the network’s hash rate (and carbon footprint) remains very close to its all-time high, averaging around 200 quintillion hashes per second. Besides bitcoin mining price predicaments, there are other potential tipping points to consider. These communities also tend to face the sharp end of the climate crisis, which crypto mining fuels.
Rising Health Care Costs and the Impact on Soon-to-Be Retirees
While inflation may result in higher prescription and medical supply prices in the short term, health care costs typically outpace inflation over the long term, regardless of market conditions. This means soon-to-be retirees need to be forward-thinking and include health care costs in their broader financial plan. Estimate costsAccording to a model Vanguard developed with Mercer Health, even with Medicare, average health care costs can reach over $5,000 per year. This advanced planning can enable someone to develop a thoughtful approach to preparing for — and ultimately paying for, future health care costs. Otherwise, it might mean tapping liquid assets or an HSA to pay for health care expenses before Medicare coverage kicks in.
5 Unexpected Insights from Your Tax Return
Marginal Tax Rates There’s often a misconception around tax rates and how they work. When we talk about tax rates, we often talk about the marginal tax rate, or the highest bracket into which income falls. However, because the U.S. has a progressive tax system and not all of your income will be taxed at your marginal tax rate, your effective tax rate may be much lower. This would entail paying income tax now on the conversion amount, rather than paying tax on IRA distributions in retirement when you may be in a higher tax bracket. Or, if you are anticipating a higher-income year, you could consider giving more to charity to increase your tax deductions in a year when you are at a higher marginal tax rate.
TikTok: How to View Your Watch History
The TikTok application now has a dedicated “Watch History” menu, which will allow users to see the videos they’ve viewed in the past seven days.

This Founder Just Gifted LLCs to an Entire Graduating Class
One Atlanta entrepreneur believes giving them access to their own LLCs is a good bet. Cole graduated from the historically Black research university in 2009 with a major in mass communication and media studies. While the now 34-year-old entrepreneur went on to found Slutty Vegan in 2018, Cole told Inc. in a recent interview that she's a philanthropist first. She launched the Pinky Cole Foundation in 2019 to support people of color in her community of Atlanta. When Rayshard Brooks was murdered in the Wendy's parking lot in June 2020, her foundation provided life insurance for the family and a brand-new car.
To Get Results, the Best Leaders Both Push and Pull Their Teams
We call one behavior “driving for results” (push), and the other “inspiring and motivating others” (pull). In this analysis, we did the following:The direct reports rated the leader’s effectiveness on both pushing (driving for results) and pulling (inspiring and motivating others). We ranked leaders’ data on pushing and pulling into quartiles and identified those who were low (bottom quartile) and high (top quartile). When both push and pull are in the bottom quartile, both confidence and satisfaction of direct reports are low. More pull, less push seemed to be what’s needed to retain talented employees.

The Staff of Uvalde’s Local Paper Cover the Worst Day of Their Lives
The day before, he had covered a serious house fire, in which, it was feared, someone had died. It was around noon, half an hour after the first 911 call, and, although Luna didn’t know it, the shooter was still alive, barricaded in a fourth-grade classroom. A man told Luna that the suspect had scaled the six-foot fence and taken two other bags with him. When local papers fold, as happened in nearby Del Rio, the information void is often filled by Facebook groups of questionable reliability. “In the middle of it, I was thinking about the other news outlets being able to beat us in every way,” Garnett told me the next day.
Reports of the Pay Phone’s Death Are Greatly Exaggerated
A person might be forgiven for believing that the city’s last pay phone was about to be removed. A couple of days after the city’s ceremony, he’d visited two public pay phones within blocks of Times Square. “Because of the copper landline, call quality is so good on the pay phones compared with anything we have now,” Thomas advised. “Aside from those four you’re at, all the pay phones under our purview have been removed,” she explained. She couldn’t explain how the Times Square pay phone was the city’s last remaining one, but she had good news.
Champions League Final: Real Madrid Beats Liverpool for 14th Title
Real Madrid beat Liverpool, 1-0, on Saturday in Paris with a performance of ruthless efficiency, of meticulous organization, of clinical obduracy. Real Madrid could risk absorbing pressure, conceding chances, safe in the knowledge that Courtois is a redoubtable last line of defense. Those last few minutes, as Real Madrid waited impatiently to claim its glory, did not build to some deafening climax. It has worked, too: This was the club’s third Champions League final in five years. After all, for a considerable proportion of the team, this was a fifth Champions League final.
Cardinal Angelo Sodano, Vatican Power Broker, Dies at 94
His death was announced by the Vatican, which did not say where he died or cite a cause. Cardinal Sodano served as secretary of state, the second-highest-ranking position in the Vatican after the pope, for 16 years. His tenure covered a good portion of the pontificate of John Paul II, who once described him as “my first and precious collaborator.” As Parkinson’s disease and other ailments debilitated John Paul II, Cardinal Sodano, along with the pope’s private secretary, played an outsize role in running the church. The cardinal mediated in the Balkan wars and vigorously opposed the George W. Bush administration’s war in Iraq. In 2010, speaking during a public Easter address, he infamously called accusations of abuse “petty gossip.”
‘The Triangle of Sadness’ Wins the Palme D’Or at Cannes
CANNES, France — The satire “Triangle of Sadness,” from the Swedish director Ruben Ostlund, won the Palme d’Or at the 75th Cannes Film Festival at a ceremony here on Saturday. The awards ceremony ran a relatively painless 90 or so minutes, another reminder that the emphasis at Cannes remains on the movies themselves, not the accompanying circus. The South Korean director Park Chan-wook won the director prize for “Decision to Leave,” an entertainingly twisty thriller (which riffs on Hitchcock’s “Vertigo”), which was a critical favorite. The screenplay award was given to the engrossing (and chatty) drama “Boy from Heaven,” from the Swedish director Tarik Saleh. The Dardennes are among the most justly honored filmmakers in the history of Cannes, having won the Palme twice (for “Rosetta” in 1999 and “The Child” in 2005).

A Texas School. A Buffalo Store. The Toll of Gun Violence Mounts in the U.S. - The New York Times
States around the country have made halting but commendable progress in passing sensible gun safety measures — red flag laws, background checks and age of purchase requirements. A federal court this month struck down a California law that set the age limit for purchasing semiautomatic weapons at 21. Anything that introduces friction into the system of gun acquisition is to the good. In New York this week, a federal judge tossed out a challenge from gun groups to a law that allows civil lawsuits against companies that have endangered public safety. We have seen these bipartisan efforts on gun safety measures come and go without results.
UEFA Blames Delay at Champions League Final on ‘Fake Tickets’
Inside the stadium, where the teams had completed their warm-ups, two 15-minute delays were announced. But even before the crowds outside had dispersed, UEFA went ahead, incongruously, with an elaborate pregame ceremony starring the singer Camila Cabello. Once she finished, the teams took the field and traded handshakes, and the final began. “Thousands of British ‘supporters’ without tickets or with counterfeit tickets forced entry and sometimes assaulted the stewards,” he wrote. UEFA officials initially seemed to lay the blame for the problems on “late-arriving fans,” even though huge crowds had been stuck at the gates for hours before the scheduled kickoff.
Jennifer Lopez Wore Oversized Corduroy Paperbag Pants with the Summer Top Everyone Should Have in Their Closet
On Wednesday, J.Lo stepped out in Los Angeles in corduroy paperbag pants and a cropped white T-shirt, blending two totally separate seasonal styles. Fabric aside, the oversized fit of Lopez's bottoms was on par with the larger-than-life pants trend that's taking over Hollywood right now (the Marry Me actress herself also opted for a wide-legged silhouette recently) — but we're more focused on her shirt choice.
As Uvalde Meets to Mourn, a Debate Unfolds Over the Commander’s Decision
UVALDE, Texas — From the first minutes after a gunman began shooting, officers descended on Robb Elementary School. Image Border Patrol officers and law enforcement from different agencies on the scene of the shooting on Tuesday. Investigators were also looking into whether an attempt was made, during the standoff, to take incident command away from Chief Arredondo. Brandon Judd, head of the Border Patrol Council, the agents’ union, said that in no case would Border Patrol agents have sought to assume command themselves. It was not clear why a Border Patrol team that was a 40-minute drive away was instead asked to lead the assault.
The N.R.A. Gathering in Houston Spotlights an American Divide
HOUSTON — On one side of an avenue in downtown Houston, people filed into the National Rifle Association’s annual convention this weekend to talk guns, admire guns, buy guns and invoke as holy script the Second Amendment right to bear arms; that is, guns. As people on one side of the avenue sweated and shouted in the baking Texas sun, others filed into the comforting cool of the George R. Brown Convention Center. The massacre of schoolchildren earlier in the week had been in Uvalde, just 300 miles west of here. Inside, politicians spoke of “hardening” schools to a mix of N.R.A. Outside, veteran and novice protesters waved handmade signs and photographs of children shot to death this week, in faint hope of changing minds.

78 Long Minutes
When families learned that a gunman had entered Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, at 11:33 a.m. on May 24, a brutal wait began. Police on the scene did not stop the gunman until well over an hour after he walked into the school, raising questions about whether lives could have been saved if they had acted sooner. Parents who rushed to the school were held outside, where many were forced to wait to learn if their children were safe. What follows is an account of each of those 78 minutes, as told by video evidence, statements by witnesses and law enforcement, and accounts of 911 calls. The toll — 19 students and two teachers dead, and more than a dozen others wounded — would not be released until many hours later.

Massacres Test Whether Washington Can Move Beyond Paralysis
And about 80 percent of people say gun purchasers should be subject to background checks, even when they buy their guns in a private sale or at a gun show. But surveys also reflect the deepening polarization in the country, where about 30 percent of adults say they own a gun. A sizable majority of people who do not own guns favor banning high-capacity ammunition magazines and creating a federal database to track all gun sales, according to Pew. The response to mass shootings in the United States is starkly different from the decisive action taken in other developed countries around the world. Australia held a mandatory gun buyback after a 1996 massacre and the rate of mass shootings plummeted.
Gun in Texas Shooting Came From Company Known for Pushing Boundaries
He has said that his gun company was born out of his poor golf game. At the time, Mr. Daniel had trouble finding a way to mount a scope onto his rifle. In an interview with Forbes, Mr. Daniel said the shooting “drove a lot of sales.” (Forbes reported that Daniel Defense had sales of $73 million in 2016.) But Mr. Daniel turned the rejection into a rallying cry, and the conservative media lapped it up. Mr. Daniel joined the “Second Amendment Coalition,” a group of gun industry heavyweights who advised Mr. Trump on gun policy.

Giants’ Joc Pederson Explains Fantasy Football Beef With Tommy Pham
Giants slugger Joc Pederson detailed what led to his altercation with Reds outfielder Tommy Pham on Friday, explaining that the spat was indeed the result of a fantasy football disagreement. As the Giants warmed up in the outfield, Pham confronted Pederson and slapped him in the cheek before the pair was eventually separated. He kind of came up and said, like, I don’t know if you remember from last year and I was like fantasy football. He was like, yeah.”Pederson said that Pham accused him of cheating in a fantasy football league that both MLB players were participating in by placing a player on injured reserve and replacing him with a fantasy football free agent. Pham did not agree, despite supposedly executing a similar swap within his own fantasy football team.

With just one series left in the second round, all eyes shift to the Carolina Hurricanes and New York Rangers. James Guillory-USA TODAY SportsWith just one series left in the second round, all eyes shift to the Carolina Hurricanes and New York Rangers. So, the series shifts back to Madison Square Garden in Game 6, a must-win for the Rangers after losing Game 5. The Rangers won both games at home, and the Hurricanes have struggled with no wins on the road in two series'. Shesterkin was a huge reason why the Hurricanes won the first-round matchup against Pittsburgh in the end after a shaky first half.
Tommy Pham Says He’s Been Suspended After Slapping Joc Pederson
On Friday night, Reds outfielder Tommy Pham slapped Giants outfielder Joc Pederson over a fantasy football argument, and that is going to cost him. Pham told media before Saturday’s game that he and MLB agreed to a three-game suspension as a punishment. Pederson explained the fantasy football dispute revolves around whether or not he properly put Jeff Wilson on Injured Reserve during one week. “He was messing with my money,” Pham said, via Evan Webeck of the Mercury News. The Reds outfielder revealed that Pederson said something “disrespectful” about the Padres in a text, something that didn’t sit well with him.
Rangers Beat Hurricanes to Force Game 7
Brad Penner-USA TODAY SportsIn a series dominated by home-ice advantage, the New York Rangers once again showed how crucial the friendly confines of one's home arena are by beating the Carolina Hurricanes at Madison Square Garden by a decisive 5-2 score to force a Game 7. The home team has won every single game to this point in the series, with the Hurricanes themselves having never lost at home, and, as of now, never winning on the road. Filip Chytil led the way offensively for the Rangers with two goals of his own, while Mika Zbanejad, Tyler Motte, and Artemi Panarin padded the score, as well. In goal, Igor Shesterkin was his typically elite self, stopping 37 shots and continuing to look like the best netminder in the series. With the series now headed to a Game 7, all bets are off.

Screen Shots: Sizing Up Avalanche vs. Oilers and Bruins, Capitals Hit Hard
But when you break down the big picture between the two Western Finalists, you have to give the advantage to Colorado. All things considered, McDavid is the best player in this series, almost single-handedly willing the Oilers to a number of wins thus far in the post-season. Take Friday’s Game 6 win for Colorado: it wasn’t MacKinnon who ended the Blues’ season. Expect the Avs and Lightning to be the last two teams standing, and a Cup Final that should be thrilling. – Boston Bruins star Brad Marchand underwent major surgery on both hips Friday, and is expected to be sidelined for six months.

Marcus Mariota Asked About Being Mentor to Falcons Rookie QB Desmond Ridder
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP)—Marcus Mariota is saying all the right things about mentoring Falcons rookie quarterback Desmond Ridder. “For me personally the last couple of years was a learning opportunity,” Mariota said after Thursday’s offseason workout. Mariota says his adjustment period in Atlanta has been “awesome”—including getting to know Ridder and the Falcons’ only returning quarterback, Feleipe Franks. Mariota eventually lost the starting job at Tennessee to Ryan Tannehill before playing behind Derek Carr with the Raiders. Smith says Mariota, 28, doesn’t need to measure himself against the standards set by Ryan — even if that’s exactly the comparisons the next Falcons quarterback will face.
Dwyane Wade Shares His Answer to Jordan vs. LeBron ‘GOAT’ Debate
The latest to weigh in on the league’s “GOAT” is former Heat great Dwyane Wade, who explained that his pick remains his childhood icon: Michael Jordan. But my GOAT, I grew up in Chicago, so Jordan is mine,” Wade said on Bleacher Report’s “Next 25” presented by Coinbase. While he grew up watching Jordan dominate the league with the Bulls, the 40-year-old recognizes that the younger generation feels that same way about LeBron James. “I also understand that the generation that’s here now, LeBron James is their GOAT,” Wade said. Despite his time tearing through the Eastern Conference with James, Wade is still sticking by Jordan, at least for now.
Why Karim Benzema’s Champions League Final Goal Was Disallowed
Near the end of the first half of the UEFA Champions League Final between Real Madrid and Liverpool, Karim Benzema appeared to score the first goal of the game and put the Spanish club up entering halftime. However, after VAR review, it was determined that Benzema was offside and the goal did not stand. The goal was scored after a scrum in front of the Liverpool goalmouth in which midfielder Fabinho failed to clear the ball. The ruling was that while Fabinho was the final player to touch the ball before Benzema’s goal, he didn’t “deliberately” touch the ball when Benzema was in an offside position. Real Madrid ended up scoring the game’s opener anyways, thanks to a Vinícius Júnior strike in the 59th minute.
Darvin Ham’s Biggest Challenge as New Lakers Coach
In addition, it’s a reminder for me that coaching was not necessarily the biggest issue for the Lakers last season. Jim Dedmon/USA TODAY SportsWhat’s the biggest challenge facing Ham as Lakers coach? Ham’s ability to successfully integrate Westbrook into his rotation will likely make or break the Lakers’ season. If he doesn’t earn their trust, the team can’t be put in the best position to succeed. Even if the trade makes no sense from a value standpoint, the Lakers need to better complement AD and LeBron.
Steelers’ Diontae Johnson Addresses Report He’s Unhappy With Contract
On Friday, The Athletic’s Mark Kaboly reported that Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson is unhappy with his contract situation, which has led to Johnson sitting out of Pittsburgh’s OTAs. According to Kaboly, Johnson has very little leverage so he is trying to as much as he can to gain the upper hand in negotiations. The fourth-year wide receiver took to Twitter to essentially give a no comment on the situation. In 2021, Johnson took full control of the Steelers’ No. 1 wide receiver role, as JuJu Smith-Schuster only played in five games.

New Steelers WR Miles Boykin Shares Why He Used to Hate Franchise
New Steelers WR Miles Boykin Shares Why He Used to Hate FranchiseWide receiver Miles Boykin is switching sides in one of the NFL’s premier rivalries, going to the Steelers after playing for the Ravens since 2019. In the 2019 draft, Pittsburgh chose to draft wide receiver Diontae Johnson over Boykin in the third round, allowing Boykin to fall to Baltimore. The wide receiver believed that the Steelers were considering him for that pick, making it easier for him to dislike the team when the Ravens took him. “It was crazy because I thought the Steelers were going to draft me originally,” Boykin said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Brian Batko.

Nick Chubb Has Encouraging Words for Baker Mayfield Amid Trade Rumors
Browns running back Nick Chubb sent a positive message to teammate Baker Mayfield amid speculation that the quarterback won’t be on Cleveland’s roster much longer. Speaking to reporters this week, Chubb called Mayfield one of his “best friends” and explained why he believes the former No. The Panthers seemed to be the frontrunners to strike a deal with the Browns for Mayfield prior to the NFL draft. A primary barrier for any team to get involved in a trade for Mayfield would be the sizable salary for the 27-year-old in 2022. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, no trade involving Mayfield is expected to get done until June.
NFL Makes Changes for Teams Interviewing Coach Candidates
The NFL issued a resolution to make changes to the league’s hiring process with goal of helping candidates properly prepare for the interviews associated with the coaching positions. Moving forward, NFL teams will not be eligible to interview a candidate for a head coach position who works for another team in the league until three days following the end of the regular season. The change also applies to the teams that fail to make the playoffs or earn a first-round bye. Coaches who are leading teams in wild-card games will be required to wait three days after their first-round matchups. However, internal candidates and non-affiliated NFL employees will have the opportunity to interview in person before the wild-card game are finished.
Jerry Jones: CeeDee Lamb Is An Upgrade Over Amari Cooper as Cowboys WR1
The Cowboys reshaped their wide receiver room in the offseason, trading Amari Cooper to the Browns to create cap space. By doing so, Dallas put third-year wide receiver CeeDee Lamb in position to be the team’s No. Despite the loss, owner Jerry Jones doesn’t think the Cowboys will take a step back offensively. Asked whether he is capable of taking that next step, Lamb said this is something that he has been preparing for all his life. I’ve been ready.”Last year, Lamb led the team in receiving with 1,102 receiving yards and 79 catches with six touchdowns in 16 games.

UEFA Blames Fans With Fake Tickets for UCL Final Fiasco in Statement
UEFA has issued a statement in response to the security issue that prevented thousand of fans from entering Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final in Paris. According to multiple reports, the incident was the result of a system failure that kept ticketed fans from gaining entry, as well as several instances of fans attempting to force their way past security and enter without tickets. After initially citing “the late of arrival of fans” as the reason for the delay, UEFA explained the unexpected interruption was caused by spectators attempting to gain entry with fake tickets. “In the lead-up to the game, the turnstiles at the Liverpool end became blocked by thousands fans who had purchased fake tickets which did not work in the turnstiles. Some of the affected spectators reportedly had tickets and had been attempting to enter the venue for over an hour.
Billy Napier: Florida Football Won’t Get Involved in NIL Bidding Wars
This year is Billy Napier’s first season as Florida’s head coach, but he has already been thrown into the SEC fire with talk about NIL. While Alabama and Texas A&M feud over who is potentially abusing the new policy, Napier said Florida will not use NIL funding in possible bidding wars, claiming that players won’t solely make decisions off that. To prepare for how to use NIL in recruitment, Napier added he can’t look in college football for the answer, so he’s looking at another industry for help. “I’ve been studying the National Football League because I think there are some things to learn. That’s the one thing that we lack that the National Football League has.”While Napier gets comfortable with his new position, he is confident the Gators will be able to use NIL successfully in the future.
Antonio Brown Says He Won’t Play in NFL Next Season
Antonio Brown Says He Won’t Play in NFL Next Season in FCF InterviewIt’s been four months since NFL fans last saw Antonio Brown on a football field, and it appears it’s going to be even longer before they see him again.

The free-agent receiver eluded to his latest career update after fielding a question from FCF reporter Charly Arnolt asking if football is still important to him. “Obviously, we live the game but you can’t play forever,” he said. ”Arnolt followed her question by asking Brown if he’s going to play next season.
Braves Call Up Top Prospect Michael Harris II Ahead of Marlins Matchup
The Braves announced they are calling up top prospect Michael Harris II to make his major league debut Saturday vs. Miami.

Champions League final video highlights: Real Madrid 1-0 Liverpool
Real Madrid has been crowned king of Europe once again. For a record 14th time, Real Madrid is the continental champion after holding Liverpool goalless at the Stade de France in Paris in a 1–0 victory.

White Sox Designate SP Dallas Keuchel for Assignment After Rough Start
The White Sox designated starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel for assignment ahead of Chicago’s game against the Cubs on Saturday, the team announced.

White Sox’s La Russa Says He Disagrees With Kapler’s Anthem Protest
White Sox manager Tony La Russa weighed in Saturday on Gabe Kapler’s decision to not participate in the national anthem in response to a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas earlier this week. Kapler’s stance on the anthem compelled La Russa to question the validity of his protest. “I think he’s exactly right to be concerned … with what’s happening in our country,” La Russa said Saturday, per ESPN. “Some of their courage comes from what the flag means to them and when they hear the anthem,” he said. “You need to understand what the veterans think when they hear the anthem or see the flag.
Madrid’s Champions League Inevitability Turns Out to Be Very Real
In this era, in which managers speak of tactical philosophies, it is the great pragmatist Carlo Ancelotti who becomes the first coach to win the Champions League four times following the 1–0 triumph at the Stade de France. The Champions League continues to provoke mixed emotions. But on the other, the latter stages of the Champions League almost certainly represent the greatest football that has ever been played. That is the challenge the Champions League presents: it is seductive and brilliant and yet it has destroyed football as the sport it used to be. But the club’s winning mentality—that inexplicable extra something that always seems to shine through on the Champions League stage even when the numbers, the matchup and all logic might dictate that it won’t be Madrid’s day—it remains as strong as ever.
Joc Pederson Pulls Out Receipts of Group Text Exchange With Tommy Pham
Giants outfielder Joc Pederson offered his side of the story Saturday after his fantasy football dispute with Reds outfielder Tommy Pham came to light following a confrontation prior to Friday’s game against the Reds. Pham was scratched from the contest after reportedly slapping the Giants outfielder over a disagreement the two had in a fantasy football league last year. Pederson said the exchange began after he shared a GIF making fun of the Padres, which elicited a reply from Pham. “Joc I don’t know you well enough to make any jokes like this,” Pham said, per Pederson. Pederson told reporters the GIF was intended to be “light-hearted” and he did not mean to offend anyone.
Report: WNBA Star Cambage Directed Racial Slur at Nigerian Players Prior to 2021 Olympics
WNBA star Liz Cambage reportedly directed a racial slur at Nigerian national team players during a scrimmage prior to the 2021 Summer Olympics, according to an investigation by The Daily Telegraph. Anonymous Nigerian players interviewed by The Daily Telegraph claim Cambage, 30, called the Nigerian players “monkeys” and told them to “go back to your third world country” during the fight.

The Most Powerful Story The Onion Ever Wrote
Its citizens wake up to a nation recovering from yet another mass shooting and feel as if they’re still in a nightmare. On Wednesday, as details of the deaths at the Uvalde school emerged, The Onion covered its homepage with each of the individual stories, and posted them all in a lengthy Twitter thread. Jason Roeder, who originally wrote the headline eight years ago, said as much to Rolling Stone this week. “I worry it’s just another part of the mass shooting ceremony—thoughts ‘n’ prayers, don’t politicize, #GunControlNow, and so on,” he said. The adequacy of the police response to the Uvalde shooting will be determined over time, but regardless, Cazares’ statement is true on a grand scale: More could have been done.
How to Make a Microphone … From a Face Mask
I know everyone is sick of this pandemic, but I'm going to suggest that you keep your face mask. This is a nice feature in normal times, but when these drops can carry the Covid-19 virus, you probably want that mask. The primary goal of the microphone is to detect this changing pressure wave in the air and convert that to a changing voltage. Once you have a changing voltage, you can use this to make an electric current and send it through some wires. But exactly how do you transform an oscillation in the air to an electric voltage?

What Is 32-Bit Float Audio, and Should You Record In It?
If that’s the case, though, why would any recording equipment need to go beyond the 144.5 dB dynamic range of 24-bit audio? Setting Levels (or Not)The insane dynamic range of 32-bit float audio is where the claim that you never need to set levels comes from, though even that is a little more complicated than it seems. Now, typically you’ll set audio levels when setting up your equipment to avoid hitting that limit. But don’t expect to leave 24-bit audio behind forever. So, you have a choice: Either set levels properly on set and record directly in 24-bit, or record in 32-bit and add the extra step later.
DuckDuckGo Isn’t as Private as You Think
And more than 40 members of Congress called on Google to stop tracking location data in Android ahead of a potential Roe reversal.

Kim Kardashian Shares Some Shots From Behind the Scenes at Kourtney's Wedding
Last weekend was Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's big Italian wedding in the seaside town of Portofino. There were a lot of photos of the family all dressed up for many of the events surrounding the main ceremony, but on Friday, Kim Kardashian dropped some adorable behind-the-scenes shots of the day. The carousel of photos show Kim, of course, looking stunning in her black lace Dolce & Gabbana gown. North also had some Dolce & Gabbana on her for the wedding, carrying an adorable black clutch with a gold heart clasp. From that angle, the image of the Virgin Mary woven into Kourtney's veil is clearly visible, and her short Dolce & Gabbana dress peaks through the pattern.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Discussing Destination Wedding
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are in the midst of wedding planning, Entertainment Tonight reports, and their eyes are set on some place warm and outside of Los Angeles. A source told the outlet, “Ben and Jen want to get married soon. “Jennifer will tell you she’s not in a rush to get married, but her friends think otherwise,” a source told Us. In April, a source told Page Six that the couple will likely keep their exact ceremony details private. For context, when Lopez and Affleck were first engaged and preparing to get married in September 2003, they called off their wedding because of the media attention surrounding it.
Scott Disick Struggling With Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's Marriage
Last weekend, most of the Kardashian inner circle gathered in Italy for Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's v lavish wedding. One notable exception was Scott Disick, who decided to pass on watching his ex walk down the aisle. Since they exchanged "I dos," Kourtney and Travis (and their guests) have shared lots of pics from the ceremony and Kourtney has even officially added Barker to her name on Instagram. "Scott has been having a hard time with Kourtney and Travis' marriage, but he is doing as well as he can be," a source told Entertainment Tonight. In the lead-up to Kourt and Travis' wedding, Scott kept busy by hanging out with friends in LA, including a dinner with Rod, Sean, and Kimberly Stewart where sources said Scott "seemed in good spirits" (per E!
Everything You Need to Know About What Happened to Hopper in 'Stranger Things 4'
*SPOILERS FOR SEASON 4 PART 1 OF STRANGER THINGS BELOW! *Fans of Stranger Things have had a lot to look forward to in season 4. Here's everything you need to know about what happened to Hopper in Stranger Things 4. As we saw at the end of Stranger Things 3, when Joyce closed the portal, Hopper ended up surviving...but not before the Russians took him away as a prisoner. Thankfully, it won't be too long of a wait, as Stranger Things 4 part 2 premieres on July 1!
Tom Cruise’s Last Stand
Illustration: Leonardo SantamariaI’d never noticed the curiously melancholy overtones of Harold Faltermeyer’s famous Top Gun theme until the opening moments of the brand-new Top Gun: Maverick. For some years, Mission: Impossible entries have been his only reliable moneymakers. Top Gun: Maverick isn’t unaware of this. Top Gun: Maverick is, finally, about the very impossibility of its own existence. Top Gun: Maverick is in theaters May 24.
Bioplastic Sculptures, an Okra-Inspired Rug, and More Design Finds
Designer Caroline Zimbalist has been obsessed with making her own materials since she was a fashion student. In her first experiments, she stripped her abstract paintings off their frames and created garments out of them. Little Wing Lee — founder of Studio & Projects and the design director of Atelier Ace, the Ace Hotel’s in-house creative studio — created a rug inspired by the cross sections of okra pods. It’s part of “Spotlight One,” the inaugural exhibition by Black Folks in Design, at the Ace Hotel Brooklyn, which is on view through June 29. That approach shows up in her resin tables, gradient mirrors, and recent reorganization of Vitra’s design archive into color families.
Which Women Do We Choose to Believe?
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are back in court in Fairfax County, Virginia. Testifying about her marriage to Johnny Depp, she detailed years of alleged abuse in graphic detail. In his U.K. trial, Depp said Barkin was motivated by a “grudge” because he didn’t return her feelings.) Depp’s fans also have a disturbing ability to take the evidence Heard presents and flip it against her. Even after so many women have come forward with accounts of abuse in recent years, the Heard trial is a sobering reminder that a victim’s credibility is still a fragile thing.
AOC’s New Fiancé Is Charmingly Normal
Here’s most of what we know: His name is Riley Roberts. We don’t know that much about Riley Roberts, and we don’t need to. What we do know about Roberts doesn’t fit the stereotype of a politician’s partner. We know he’s supportive and encouraging in private. Not Riley Roberts though.

Plus Rooster and Hangman, that’s seven pilots Top Gun: Maverick weaves into the story line and uses for reaction shots — and yet none is our beloved Jason Mendoza. Either way, if you hoped to see Jacinto’s charming grin, fine-tuned comedic timing, or gleaming shirtlessness during beach football in Top Gun: Maverick, I’m sorry to disappoint, but none of this comes to fruition.

Movie Review: Vengeance Is Mine, starring Brooke Adams
Trish Van Devere and Brooke Adams in Vengeance Is Mine. Photo: Film DeskThe surfaces of Vengeance Is Mine are so modest that the film’s deep vein of emotional terror sneaks up on you. Roemer’s film follows Jo (Brooke Adams), a recently divorced woman briefly returning to her family home in a coastal New England town after a long time away. And now here’s Vengeance Is Mine, completely discarded and ignored in its day, arriving on our screens like pure cinematic oxygen. I took, by my count, four classes with him (including a lively and popular class on American film comedy), and he rarely discussed the pictures he himself had made.

Stranger Things The Massacre at Hawkins Lab Season 4 Episode 7 Editor’s Rating 5 stars * * * * * « Previous Next « Previous Episode Next Episode » Photo: Courtesy of NetflixOh, okay, yes, that is one way to end Volume 1. They head for the Upside Down Wheeler house, where Nancy says she has two guns hidden. The walk there gives Eddie and Steve time to have a conversation that I am honestly obsessed with. Eddie tells Steve how Dustin worships him, which makes Steve so happy (how precious!). When the doors on the other side finally open, everything goes into slo-mo, and Hopper sees Joyce standing there before him.
The Da Vinki Twins Finally Saw the Mona Lisa
Photo: Voros Twins/YouTubeIt’s always “Who painted the Mona Lisa?” and never “How did the Mona Lisa feel meeting the Da Vinki twins?” The Voros twins, also known as the Da Vinki twins, have closed the gap in the meme time continuum. They have seen the Mona Lisa in person in the Louvre in Paris. The pair gained popularity after they mispronounced Leonardo Da Vinci’s name in a TikTok trivia filter video. Their Renaissance art journey came full circle when they finally saw Da Vinci’s painting this past week while wearing matching “Da Vinki” shirts. The twins, named Chris and Patrick Voros, are also Canadian professional wrestlers as well as social media influencers.
Will the ‘School-Shooting Generation’ Change Politics?
A later academic study of that election showed that only 4 percent of campaign ads for the entire 2013–14 cycle mentioned guns, and a majority of them promoted gun rights. There are multiple indicators that younger millennials and members of Generation Z, who have grown up experiencing regular trauma from mass shootings, especially in schools, could make gun violence a bigger issue in the political discourse. This has been especially true in the south and west, where insensitivity to gun rights is often deemed a sign of cultural cluelessness or elitism. But political leadership as well as public support will be necessary. Elected Democrats have nothing to lose, and a rising generation of voters sick of gun violence may demand action.
Is New York Ready for Recession?
But a close look at some key data suggest that New York families and companies are about to get walloped by rising food and fuel prices, a slumping stock market and the looming possibility of a devastating economic recession. So we’re way behind the rest of the country,” says Greg David, a writer at The City who spent 35 years at Crain’s New York Business reporting on the local economy. But the current plunge in the stock market means hundreds of billions of dollars are being lost. In the event of a recession, such choices will be a source of great anger when the hard times arrive. “With rising inflation, still-too-high unemployment, a declining stock market, and so much long-term uncertainty, our economy is facing headwinds.
Triangle of Sadness Takes Home Pepto and Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival
Photo: CHRISTOPHE SIMON/AFP via Getty ImagesThe 2022 Cannes Film Festival has come to an end. In its second year post-pandemic, the French film festival reunited with filmmakers like George Miller and David Cronenberg, who haven’t returned to the festival in several years. Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future was one of the films in the competition alongside Stars at Noon, Broker, and Armageddon Time for the coveted Palme d’Or, the highest prize awarded at the festival. Presented by director Alfonso Cuarón and Cannes president Vincent Lindon, the winner of the Palme d’Or is the Swedish “Eat the Rich” comedy Triangle of Sadness, directed by Ruben Östlund. This marks Östlund’s second Palme d’Or as he won for The Square in 2017.
Brewing Up a Couture-like Coffee Brand in Paris
Now Momus, an upstart French coffee brand, seems poised to further disrupt the scene with its couture-like concept. Lionel Giraud Courtesy of Momus“Coffee is not treated as it should be, especially since it’s the number-two drink in the world after water,” he adds. There are also nine blends credited to Daniela Capuano, who in 2019 was named Meilleur Ouvrier de France in torréfaction, the French word for coffee roasting. Sustainability is intrinsic to Giraud’s concept, with all coffee traceable to a specific plot of land on each farm. To be sure, consumers seem to be turning their backs on wasteful coffee capsules, Giraud says, pointing to a spike in French sales of coffee grinders and coffee makers that use whole beans or ground coffee, the only formats Momus sells.
Harry Styles, Live Nation Pledge $1 Million to Everytown for Gun Safety
Harry Styles and Live Nation will donate over $1 million to the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, an arm of the largest gun violence prevention organization in the U.S, in the wake of the Uvalde, Texas school shooting. “Along with all of you, I have been absolutely devastated by the recent string of mass shootings in America, culminating at Robb Elementary School in Texas,” Styles said in an Instagram post. “On our North American tour, we will be partnering with Everytown who work to end gun violence, donating to support their efforts, and sharing their suggested action items.”All 42 dates of Styles’ forthcoming Love On Tour are sold out, including two fifteen-night residencies at Madison Square Garden in New York City and at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. The proceeds from the tour, with concert producer Live Nation matching, are projected to equal over $1 million, per Live Nation. In 2021, the first leg of Styles’ Love On Tour sold nearly 720,000 tickets, making it the highest-selling tour of the year, according to Pollstar, which tracks concert data.
Crypto Film ‘The Infinite Machine’ Adds Metaverse Component in Pact With Decentraland, Lumiere
The agreement between Versus and Decentraland will see the film and its NFT collection developed and integrated into the Decentraland metaverse. Lumiere, a Hong Kong- and Singapore-based entertainment specialist, is supporting the project by developing and integrating the experience of the film and engaging its audiences into the Decentraland metaverse. “The Infinite Machine” is expected to conduct its third round of NFT issues in the following months, allowing it to become the first ever NFT-financed film. “We are really proud that a company such as Lumiere and as important a film as ‘The Infinite Machine’ have chosen Decentraland to build their experience in order to interact with its community fan base. The link between movies, their communities and the Metaverse is already happening,” said Alejandro De Grazia, head of film and entertainment at Decentraland Foundation.
Why Is TikTok Saying No to New York’s Legal Weed?
“Cannabis es legal en Nueva York pero solo para adultos mayores de 21 años,” reads another. That’s because, according to a letter New York’s Office of Cannabis Management sent TikTok this week and shared exclusively with Rolling Stone, the notoriously censorious platform won’t allow it. Alexander writes that people under 21 are not permitted to use cannabis under state law because of the drug’s risk to brain development. In the letter, Alexander asks TikTok to reconsider its prohibition of the ads to help make legal weed safe for New Yorkers. “I’m hoping that additional pressure can get them to waive their no cannabis advertising policy for this cannabis education program,” Alexander says.
Who Won Big at Cannes, from ‘Triangle of Sadness’ to Vicky Krieps
Cannes sets up audience hits and award winners for global box office success; some will even make it to the Oscar race. What does winning a prize at Cannes mean in the long run? A Cannes prize can help a Screenplay winner like “Boy from Heaven” to land distribution, including in North America. The decisions were all reached with a nice majority.”screenshotNeon did well in Cannes, scoring their third Palme winner in a row. The “Titane” and “Parasite” distributor will be sure to push their surprise Palme d’Or winner “Triangle of Sadness,” which the distributor won in a bidding war, plunking down north of $8 million.
‘You Haven’t Heard the Last of the B-52s’: America’s Favorite Party Band Tries to Say Goodbye
I’m one of the ones in the band that really loves being on the road, but I also love being home. Fred and I always said, “We gotta tour with them.” So I think it’s just going to be a great party. Changing the set list is like Congress passing a bill; everybody wants their songs or their favorite songs to perform. Any of the songs, “Love Shack,” all our songs are pretty fast and furious, but you just have to recreate it each time. I was going to ask, “What does the B-52s retirement plan look like,” but it sounds like there isn’t one.
Major League Pickleball Makes Its New York Debut on Wall Street
The league kicks off the year on June 3-5 at Dreamland, an 86-acre venue in Dripping Springs, Texas. During this three-day tournament, teams play a women’s doubles game, a men’s doubles game, followed by two mixed doubles games. If two teams are tied after these four games, a tiebreaker is played, involving all four players on each team. The official rule book was published in 1984 and the governing body of the sport, USA Pickleball was formed in 2005. The format between the draft and multiple events is great, some real intrigue, and we’re super excited to be part of it.”In addition to the MLP, there are two domestic professional pickleball tours: the Association of Pickleball Professionals (APP) and the Professional Pickleball Association (PPA).
Every Sex Pistols Song, Ranked
For a young person now trying to fathom the Sex Pistols and the pre-internet 1970s context that spat them up, a college-level course of study is almost required. Among other things, the Pistols were a multimedia culture jam, a terrorist threat, a neo-Marxist art project, a total scam, a ghostly visitation, and an exhilarating rock band (the last very unexpectedly). Even before the band’s debut album, 1977’s righteous dirty bomb Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols, there has been a growing landfill of material cashing in on their murky legacy. Solo gigs by bassist Sid Vicious after the band broke up have been bootlegged repeatedly as the “Sex Pistols.” That said, here are all of the band’s songs, i.e., those performed by at least one member of the organization and officially sold under the Pistols name. They’re ranked from worst to first, though, of course, the Pistols tried to torch such bourgeois distinctions, preferring to skin us alive, which they often did.
The NRA Country Concert Is Kaput
While there has been no official statement by the NRA, Bryant’s tweet and a dead link to the concert’s webpage point to no show. “Please join fellow Second Amendment patriots for the remainder of the this freedom-filled weekend.”The multi-artist country concert appeared to be in jeopardy on Thursday when Don “American Pie” McLean dropped out. Larry Gatlin, a conservative country singer who’s performed at past NRA conventions and Trump rallies, followed soon after. After being criticized on Twitter for his scheduled appearance at the NRA’s concert, Bryant tweeted that the show was off. Still, the NRA’s Convention carried on with speakers like the ignominious Texas senator Ted Cruz and twice-impeached former president Donald Trump.
Investigation Into Andy Dick Sexual Battery Allegations Paused

Cannes 2022: Ruben Ostlund’s ‘Triangle of Sadness’ Wins Palme d’Or
The Cannes Film Festival celebrated its 75th anniversary this year and its big prize, the Palme d’Or, was awarded to Ruben Ostlund’s Triangle of Sadness, a satire of modern capitalism. Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne have won the Palme d’Or twice before, for The Son in 2005 and Rosetta in 1999. Actress and director Riley Keough, who is also Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, won the prize for the best first film. Keough and her co-director Gina Gammell took the Camera d’Or for War Pony, a film about two Oglala Lakota boys navigating life on the South Dakota reservation. War Pony also fetched the Palm Dog — best canine performance — thanks to Brittany the gray poodle, who played the role of Beast.
The Baby-Formula Shortage Has Spawned a New Brand of Mom-Shamers
For the past few weeks, parents have been panicking over a nationwide baby formula shortage. In light of the formula shortage, many people have responded not by sympathizing with terrified parents worried about whether they’ll be able to feed their children, but by asking a simple and terribly ignorant question: why don’t parents just breastfeed? — bettemidler (@BetteMidler) May 13, 2022People are piling on because of former tweet. No shame if you can’t breastfeed, but if you can & are somehow convinced that your own milk isn’t as good as a “scientifically researched product”, that’s something else again. On this episode of DLTF, Spanos and Dickson discuss not only the baby formula shortage, but also the unveiling of DeuxMoi, Halsey starting beef with her label on TikTok, and a torch singer parrot crowned Himbo of the Week.

He Lost His Son to a School Shooting. Here’s Why He’s Willing to Relive His Agony
When Mark Barden received the first “thinking of you” text on Tuesday afternoon, he assumed the well-wisher had the anniversary of some other horrific school shooting on their mind. Barden would soon find out, of course, about a new tragedy unfolding at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. On Tuesday night, Barden and his wife, Jackie, got in their car and drove around. The night Barden could no longer imagine, as he’d done in the hours before, that his auburn-curled little boy had miraculously escaped the horror in his classroom and dashed into the woods, safe and sound. “That’s a rough estimate,” Hogg, a survivor of the 2018 Parkland shooting, says.
The Britain Project Is the Latest Incarnation of Zombie Blairism
That is until a few weeks ago, when the Britain Project was created. But the Britain Project is more intriguing for what it doesn’t reveal than what it does. For an organization which seeks a top-to-bottom transformation of British politics, the Britain Project has not created great waves — indeed, thus far it has barely made a ripple. “The Britain Project is a group working across party lines,” said Blair. “We want this conference to be an opportunity for people to come together and set out a broad direction for the future of Britain.” It can be no accident that the speech is reposted on the Britain Project website in full.

Morning Open Thread is a daily, copyrighted post from a host of editors and guest writers. And if you’re brand new to Morning Open Thread, then Hail and Well Met, new Friend. As cities grew, health officials realized that transporting sewage beyond the city limits was not enough and began building sewage treatment plants. The new treatment plants’ pumps, digesters, clarifiers, and conveyor belts consume massive amounts of energy, and are therefore very expensive to operate. Sludge is the de-watered, sticky black cake created by the truckload in modern sewage treatment plants.
how could one really profit by investing in UKR victory right now
But it must occur to us capitalists that if indeed UKR pulls this off — investing in the right place would pay geometric returns. I think there is something much better — and I want to know what you guys think. I am sure I am not the only one thinking this way. What are you guys thinking — have a good idea?? I do think — making money from Russia’s failure while helping Ukraine sure seems like a win-win-win to me.
We can transform the gun debate with this simple equation. It’s easy math, even for the GOP.
ANOTHER BIG LIE we can take down with : Intent + means = outcome. Intent: the will and mindset to carry out an actionMeans: access to the actual equipment to carry it out. The GOP hijacks the national debate by saying we only need work on “intent” , which conveniently allows gun sales to continue unabated. The NRA gets crafty by saying: hey, we need MORE guns and have everyone carry. So domestically, taking assault weapons does NOT lead to taking single shot guns and hunting rifles, and never has.
WOW2: May's Trailblazing Women and Events in Our History
In 1907, she became a member of the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU). Despite her disability she took part in the WSPU's march to the Royal Albert Hall in June 1908. The prison authorities were confused by this sentence for a disabled woman, and gave her no extra work. Billinghurst took part in the mass deputation of suffragettes to petition King George V on May 21, 1914. Billinghurst stopped her activity for women's suffrage after the Qualification of Women Act 1918 gave some women the vote.
Putting an End to the AMERICAN HOUSE of LORDS: a Case Study
It was only after the Tories’ lost power in the House of Lords and the Reform Act of 1832 passed both Houses, that the Rotten Boroughs were largely eliminated, and the powers of the House of Lords were significantly reined in. Our obstructionist “House of Lords”/Senate prevents the passage of virtually any and all remedies to the many crises our society confronts. In 19th Century Britain the OUTSIDE LEVER rested in the hands of the King. But one OUTSIDE LEVER still remains. The only OUTSIDE LEVER available to Americans to MOVE THE WORLD that is currently the HOUSE-OF-LORDS/SENATE is Senate Elections.
The Uvalde Police were going to be very busy this weekend. It might have been a holiday for the rest of us, but not for Uvalde’s finest. They would be waiting to ticket anyone from out of town, especially if they were from out of state, who went through it. They would be waiting at the major thoroughfares, for drivers, especially out of state drivers, who exceeded the speed limit. I suspect Uvalde’s finest are busy this weekend, ticketing the many people who have come to the site of yet another mass murder.

Democrats should bring back the 'Contract with America' for the 2022 Midterm Campaign
Joshua Roberts/AFP/Getty ImagesIn 1994, Republican New Gingrich came up with a campaign strategy called the 'Contract with America.' Three recent events have given Democrats an opportunity to submit their Contract with America. Democrats should bring these issues to the top of the agenda with a Contract with America just like Gingrich did. It can work for the DemocratsHere is my suggestion for a Contract with America that all Democrats, at every level, should run on. The Democrat's Contract with America would be in clear contrast to that proposal.
What's For Dinner? v16.47
We rarely think of salad as comfort food, but with the right amount of mayo you can fit both categories. —I can’t remember this ever happening before: I looked at a can of tuna on my shelf and thought “I want tuna pasta salad”. In a large bowl add chopped onion and celery, peas, cooked pasta, and drained tuna. [Since the pasta will soak up the dressing, saving part of the dressing to add later gives a creamier salad.] What’s for dinner at your place?
WYFP: GOP=Fear Itself
This parrot just won't dieThe Republican party has abdicated any responsibility to offer voters a policy platform. The result of the Republican party abdicating their responsibility toward any kind of governance is a country being held hostage by a minority of gun owners. Why aren’t these people declared public safety threats and forced to undergo some kind of evaluation to find out just how likely they are a danger to others? But, how many kids have to die to protect a minority of gun owners’ rights? I’ve been wondering this week what people live thru if they live next to a gun hoarder.
The Texas Shooting is a Symbol of the Divide in America
The Republican party is unforgiving of those who hate guns or want gun control. Republicans control 28 governorships, 54.35% of state legislatures, federal courts under their thumb and have a supermajority in the Supreme Court. The Republican party machine has used its power to ensure that gun control goes nowhere. There is no world where Republicans endorse gun control because gun control is part of the Republican identity. If acts of violence like the Texas shooting do not do that, then just ask yourself what that great act is.
Trump blamed school administrators & kids bad behavior at NRA speech! Have you seen this?
21 dead...19 of which are children and he blames kids and administrators. My take away is he thinks shooting little children is the answer to bad behavior.

(@RonFilipkowski) May 27, 2022Well I guess he blames the kids and teachers for their deaths.
Mariupol sans the Israeli Iron Dome.
And although the US, EU and NATO have provided many heavy armaments to Ukraine, America doesn’t have in its inventory the Israeli Iron Dome mobile all-weather Air Defense System. This Iron Dome system is designed to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and artillery shells from distances of 2.5 miles to 43 miles away…and maybe more. From 2011 to 2022, US Congress approved $2.6 billion for Israel’s Iron Dome system. And let’s not forget that this Iron Dome system could have saved most of the destruction of city of Mariupol and other cities. So why didn’t Israel provide their life saving Iron Dome to Ukraine?
Books So Bad They're Good: Summer Lineup
Why, that nice Dr. Seuss wrote a whole book about it! Nor is the strong probability that Dr. Seuss, who spent much of his life in California, was actually inspired by the view from a mountain overlooking La Jolla. Besides, there’s a long tradition of Easthampton, or at least Mount Tom, being a tourist attraction. Adding the claim that Mount Tom is actually Mount Crumpit and Easthampton is Whoville fits right into this tradition.

Unless you live near me in Northwest Washington, D.C., you don’t know that Daily Kos is running a slew of ads from “Democrats for Education Reform,” the anti-union, “school choice” group that fights against progressive education policies. Specifically, DFER is pushing the candidacy of Eric Goulet for DC City Council with nonstop ads on this site. These DFER ads are actually funded by “Education Reform Now Advocacy Inc.,” a 501(c)(4) group that allows the donors to remain anonymous. But it’s common knowledge that right-wing billionaires and their foundations have been funding this movement all along. Doesn’t this site have standards for ads that it will publish?
Carnage in the Supreme Court
Millions of Americans, thousands of news writers and news broadcasters, five Supremes, one political party and one has-been president believe “commit” is a synonym of suppress. Modern politicians don’t write so well either. Are they so concerned about unborn children that they have no time for born and living children? When teachers die trying to defend children do the Supremes and other pro-life politicians ever wonder what heroic deed they might do? Campaign money, retirement money.
Time To Wise Up: Your Vote Is Being Abused
1) The GQP-types largely run (administer) the GOP, the national party headquartered in Washington (as the DNC is also headquartered in Washington). When TFG was potus, he spent those 4 years quietly putting ‘his people’ in charge of running the national party. But ONLY district voters count for them, so reps don’t care and don’t listen to the outside world. They have their ‘gang’ of chosen district voters and that’s all that matters to them. An example of a ‘non-compact’ district map, aka “choosing your voters” instead of voters choosing their representatives.
Thug Texas goes to war against even Big Money (Citi, Chase) over death-lust, woman-bashing, etc.
The mafioesque response of the Texas thug-right is to retaliate against even the most tepid responses by the Big Money Boys. The bank, along with Citigroup and other Wall Street firms, did not completely shut the door on gun companies. A spokesman for Citi said the bank had not altered its policies related to the gun industry since they went into effect in March 2018. The Texas law is the first of its kind in the country. This year, Wyoming passed a law that allows gun companies to sue banks and other firms that refuse to do business with them.
Ukraine Invasion Day 95: ambivalent victories

Only One Thing Will Stop These Shooting Massacres
Only One Thing will stop these Shooting Massacres. The shooter should not have been allowed to purchase these guns and the accompanying military equipment. The Uvalde shooter was a coward, regardless of being either crazy or sane. He may have been as crazy, less, or crazier than the Uvalde shooter. It is the ability and easy access for them to acquire these guns, assault rifles, and accessory military equipment.
I was a teenager, then I began dating but there were a few children I couldn’t give up. The friend, a nut, had guns in just about every room, including one on the back of the toilet, no safety. Three year old children do not have a lot of blood; they’re small. I was with the parents and the five and a half year old brother, who’d be six soon enough. those families and friends in Texas lost children and they’ll now have similar memories, except it was murder.

Maybe Faith Has Nothing To Do With Gun Violence
So, I decided to see if there was a correlation between faith and gun violence. A note on the dataSweden and Norway have high gun ownership because they are avid hunters. The 107 mass shooting incidents number from Mother Jones will be the most controversial. The low atheism and high gun ownership/violence levels for America might lead to speculation that faith indicates the potential for violence.

Texas Teacher Irma Garcia Died Protecting Her Kids. Her Husband Joe Has Just Died Of A Broken Heart.
Irma Garcia was my mentor when I began teaching. "Joe and Irma Garcia were parishioners of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Uvalde, and Irma was a leader in a woman's ministry there," said a spokesperson for the archdiocese. I truly believe Joe died of a broken heart. But unlike a heart attack, broken heart syndrome usually does not involve blocked coronary arteries or permanent heart damage. And how can you mend a broken heart?

How Many Children Have To Die Before We Do THE BARE MINIMUM To Solve The Gun Problem In America?
The NRA has fewer than 4.9 million members... That's less than 1.4% of the US populationThis is the question that needs to be asked after each and every massacre… How many children have to die before we do THE BARE MINIMUM to solve the gun problem in America? THE BARE MINIMUM consists of 1) enforcing the laws we already have, 2) closing the gun show loophole, and 3) expanding background checks for all gun sales. This should not be all that complicated… Having the support of an overwhelming majority, THE BARE MINIMUM should have universal support among our elected representatives. If it doesn’t, then that means they don’t represent the majority. The NRA has fewer than 4.9 million members... That's less than 1.4% of the US population!
While defending Putin, Russian state TV accidentally admits Trump is a fascist
Fascist death yam Donald Trump probably doesn’t understand why—or even whether—he’s a fascist. So that whole global-order-defining dustup in the ‘40s likely remains as mysterious to him as his bathroom refrigerator’s vegetable crisper. Then again, he did reportedly keep a collection of Hitler’s speeches at his bedside—though he claims he never read it. Which, ironically, I find a little hard to believe. But while Trump’s supporters, when confronted with his fascism, tend to squeal like anyone unlucky enough to glimpse his Gorgonzola-esque Dali painting of a pelvic region, at least one bona fide Trump fan in Russian state media is connecting the dots.

Astronomers warn "there's no Planet B"
Last July, under the aegis of Astronomers for Planet Earth, more than 2750 astronomers and astrophysicists from 87 countries signed an open letter focusing attention on and urging immediate and substantial steps to address our current climate crisis. "Comprehensive scientific evidence clearly demonstrates that we are living in a climate emergency that calls for urgent action," they warn. Beyond setting an example in their own field and institutions, the astronomers warn that similar steps to reduce carbon emissions and move towards sustainability are urgently needed worldwide. The life on it is real, and the political separations that have placed the planet in danger are of human manufacture. The question, they key question, the central question, in a certain sense the only question, is, will we?"

People of color will pay the steepest price if abortion is banned
Abortion has always been an emotionally charged topic, but it is intrinsically a health care issue and should be discussed as such. Statistics show that gender health disparities exist, with inequities being particularly pronounced among Black women and in geographic areas where health care options are limited. Health outcomes are particularly disastrous for Black women, whose rates of maternal mortality are three times as high as those for white women. This week, he proposed a $125 million reproductive health package to expand access to abortion and other reproductive health care services. Access to reproductive health care is spotty across the United States, often dependent on geography, even within states.
Ukraine Update: Western artillery is already impacting the Battle of Donbas, and more is on the way
This is especially true because Russian forces are destroying the city as they assault it and will control its rubble if they capture it. Russia wants it to declare all of Luhansk Oblast captured, and Ukraine wants it to deny Russia that propaganda victory. Russia’s problem is that the deeper they stretch into Ukrainian territory, the more exposed they get to Ukrainian artillery, particularly the deeper-range American/Canadian/Australian M777s and French Caesars. Russia ignores it, and Ukraine has an opportunity to retake serious territory and make a mess of Russia’s efforts to annex Kherson Oblast into Russia. If the United States provides them, Ukraine will need Western contract personnel to handle maintenance and on-the-job training.
Mass shootings are a symptom of the declining U.S. empire's fascist reaction
The mass shootings that this country has been reeling from are symptoms of the U.S. empire's decline. This is only natural, because the imperialist social order behind law enforcement is what's producing these shootings. At least one-third of mass shooters have been trained by the United States military. White supremacist mass shooters get radicalized by the propaganda channels that are made possible by the settler-colonial structure. Mass shootings in the U.S. far outpace those in other rich countries because the U.S. is not just an imperialist country, but the core imperialist country, the one with a military budget that dwarfs those of its allies.

America needs a Grand Reset
I was prompted to write this article after reading Ellen Brown's recent article in this journal on the need for a "reset that serves the people."

Today, the national debt seems to be around $30 trillion. I will end this article by broadening her enthusiasm to state that a Grand Reset could be possible that changes America from a corpocracy of the power elite to a genuine democracy of the American people.

The Choice Between Politics and Art Is a False One
Review of Either/Or by Elif Batuman (Penguin Press, 2022)Living a political life and an artistic one has long been considered mutually exclusive. Elif Batuman, author of the semiautobiographical 2017 Pulitzer Prize finalist The Idiot, ponders the relationship between art and politics in her new sequel, Either/Or. “To be obsessed by your own life experience was childish, egotistical, unartistic, and worthy of contempt,” she had learned in high school. She vacillates between the urge to escape him and the feeling that this will be yet another interesting experience worth having. Childhood’s End During her travels through Turkey, Selin experiences a coming of age that moves her decidedly from the realm of childhood to one of adulthood, just as she intended.
The Bob’s Burgers Movie Sides With Working-Class Eccentrics
I like Bob’s Burgers, an easygoing animated comedy about an underdog working-class family running a perpetually struggling hamburger joint. People wanted to see a concert version of Bob’s Burgers featuring puppets? But the thing is, that’s exactly the kind of addled logic that would prevail within the world of Bob’s Burgers. Some version of potential restaurant failure is central to Bob’s Burgers’ plots in general. Though you’d miss all the insider stuff, the movie is still perfectly easy to follow even if you’ve never seen an episode of Bob’s Burgers.
Joan Robinson Changed the Way We Think About Capitalism
Joan Robinson was one of the most remarkable figures in the world of economics during the twentieth century. Breaking the Mold Joan Violet Robinson was born in Camberley, Surrey, on October 31, 1903, into an upper-class English family. In her preface to the second edition of the book, Robinson was strongly self-critical. A sufficient rise in money wages will always lead to a rise in the rate of interest and so check an increase in employment. This was sufficient, Robinson maintained, to discredit the quantity theory of money (later revived by monetarist economists such as Milton Friedman).
Dollar General Workers Are Fed Up
That’s how David Williams, who works at a Dollar General in New Orleans, describes the discount retail chain’s resistance to workers’ demands for better wages and working conditions. Raised in the city’s Lower Ninth Ward, Williams has worked at Dollar General for around two-and-a-half years. A recent report from the Economic Policy Institute finds that 92 percent of Dollar General employees make less than $15 an hour. Dollar store workers put too much into this to get paid as they do,” he adds. Coming as it does at a time when other low-wage workers in the retail sector are beginning to organize other large companies — from Starbucks to Apple, Target, and Trader Joe’s — Dollar General workers say that now is the time to change what has become intolerable.
The Empty Promises of Pierre Poilievre’s Pocketbook Populism
Poilievre’s campaign, bolstered by his sizable social media following, has attracted substantial crowds in cities across the country. Poilievre’s politics comprise a fusion of far-right dogmas, which run the gamut of libertarian skepticism of government “overreach” — most notably in relation to pandemic-related public health measures — to anti-union politics. Deflationary Mantras, Ruling Class Politics The paradox of Poilievre’s brand of sound money populism is that it evinces an unmistakably ruling-class politics. This is revealed most plainly by the policy implications behind his promise to conquer the scourge of inflation: restoring central bank independence. Central bank “independence” has long been a euphemism for insulating control over monetary policy from the vicissitudes of democratic politics.
Hey Hey, NRA, How Many Kids Did You Kill Today?
Young and diverse, about 200 protestors exclaimed: “shame” and “kids, not guns” at the NRA members milling about who were, for the most part, white men over fifty. As the grim details dripped out from hundreds of reporters in Uvalde, entertainers dropped out of the NRA event. The violence perpetrated by Texas gun culture south of the border, in turn, pushes migrants north across the Rio Grande. However, for other protesters, neither more guns in the hands of private citizens nor gun-carrying officers in school will help. In her district, administrators have increased training for mass shootings every year since 1998, the year of the Columbine massacre.
Stella Assange Urges Support for Consortium News
She compared PayPal’s ban on Consortium News to that on WikiLeaks back in 2010. The wife of imprisoned WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange has called on the public to donate to Consortium News, which she said received the same treatment from PayPal as WikiLeaks did back in 2010. Like WikiLeaks, which later had the ban reversed, PayPal has shut down Consortium News‘ account. Stella Assange also called for support for Mint Press News, which has also been banned by PayPal. On May 19, Stella Assange also called for Consortium News‘ support at a film screening in London.

At the time, the mainstream media did not include in its reports the role that his demand for reparations might have played in his fall.

A primary lesson: How Ted Cruz helped Glenn Youngkin pull the fleece over Virginia voters' eyes
In January-February 2021, polls showed support for Youngkin among Republican voters to be in the single digits. Chase might very well have won a multi-candidate Republican primary. Instead, the state Republican Party made a controversial decision to hold a convention on May 8 instead of a primary. The state GOP establishment, including former governors George Allen and Bob McDonnell, backed Kirk Cox, the former state House speaker. And then Cruz stepped up to the plate to endorse Youngkin and vouch that he was a bona fide, religious-right conservative.
Brief comment on the Uvalde, Texas mass shooting
Unfortunately school shootings happen often enough that we know some of the names of the schools where the shootings occurred: Sandy Hook Elementary School, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Oxford High School, Santa Fe High School, Columbine High School. Now Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, has joined this shameful list. Kristi Noem and Texas Gov. Each rejected any suggestion that gun control measures were needed to stop mass shootings. Thus sadly, it will only be a matter of time before the next mass shooting occurs.
Saturday: Scapes and Stuff.
I'm starting to think they want to ban abortion so there will be more kids to kill in school yards. Abortion laws and gun laws — funny how they work in the minds of the SCOTUS and the GOP pols. they're not going to follow gun laws." we're gonna MAKE THEM follow abortion laws." Scapes and Stuff.
Feral pigs remain safe, as ever
Despite the alleged necessity of possessing an AR-15 or like weapon to “harvest” feral pigs, guns of all types were banned during a portion of this week’s NRA convention. As a result, multiple vicious and dangerous feral pigs escaped the Houston event unscathed. It’s more sporting to shoot at smaller targets, I guess.
Last night in the City of Angels, City of Lights.
She was wobbly but firm as parent after parent, student after student brought her bouquets as she gamely took her final bows. When the young women disgorged their fury on the matter of Roe vanishing and their bodily autonomy gone, I could see him scowl, damn, I could hear him think. But even at nearly 66 years old, I do not stand with him even if I was sitting with him. I mean, I could be wrong but every time the kids, especially the young women hit the "deserved grievance bullseye", I could see the dude wince. We really and truly fucked this world up and they'll save us or save the streets and fields and oceans we inhabited at least.

The Jagged Orbit
His book “The Shockwave Rider“ predicts the internet and the rise of fake news. His book “The Jagged Orbit“ predicts the rise of gun nuttery fueled by racism. In the later book, America becomes so paranoid it surrounds itself with walls and gun emplacements. It’s the world the right insists we build here, especially after the latest of the latest gun massacreand…. I don’t want to live in a country where my kids, my family, and my friends have to shuttle from prison to prison just so the gun crazies can roam free.

Many Texass men have kicked doors in to simply beat their wives I’m sure.
Can Biden Be the Churchill for this Midterm Battle Against Fascism?
American democracy is under assault from the Republican Party. This Republican Party getting control of the Congress, many observers believe, could be a death knell to American democracy itself. The President, with his bully pulpit, has an especially important role to play. The role the nation needs Biden to play is clear, but it is unclear how effective Biden can be in that kind of a role in this kind of a battle even if he wants to. But Biden, like anyone else, can only do his best.
and the End of the World
But there is another one which seems to be getting less attention yet is no less significant: the belief that the end of the world will come if Christians can just create the right conditions for it. (By “end of the world” I mean the end of the world as it currently exists, with suffering and death. It doesn’t mean the physical world will cease to exist; rather, there will be heaven on earth — a return to the garden of Eden, as it were.) The second argues that we must establish a Christian kingdom on earth for a thousand years first, after which Jesus will return to announce the end of the world and the final judgment. will be allowed to live (except maybe in a degraded state) in this Christian kingdom.

Police militarization: My "well, duh" moment
Not intended for protecting or servingI’ve been struggling to wrap my mind around the continuously-deteriorating official stories about police response at Uvalde. When the spokesman said, “They might have gotten shot” he was enunciating the primary factor that would have influenced anyone’s reactions in that situation. But just now, seriously just today, I realized something: that military equipment is not intended for fighting to serve and protect the populace. It follows logically that when a teenager who may outgun them is involved, the military equipment ceases to serve its purpose because the kid has already committed to killing anybody he sees. I still believe that there are doubtless thousands of police across the country who see that as their jobs and live it out.

Angry-making COVID-19 headlines: South China Morning Post commits journalistic crime
The data encompasses both older adults who were hospitalised because of Covid (27 per cent) and those who were not (73 per cent). Indeed, the follow-up quote from Dr. Cohen lends credence to this angle: “’On average, older adults are less resilient. But in many elderly people, long Covid is difficult to recognise. “The challenge is that nonspecific symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, pain, confusion, and increased frailty are things we often see in seriously ill older adults. We’re now moving into the era where we have to come to terms that Long Covid is real and will be with us for the foreseeable future.
Finnish reservists put together a map service on the war in Ukraine
Tuomas Kaarkoski, Reserviläinen, 3.2.2022, translated from Finnish languageFrom the very beginning of the war in Ukraine, it became clear that there would be a huge amount of information about the war circulating on the Internet. One of these was Emil Kastehelmi, who, together with his friends John Helin and Erik Matero, started to compile an actively updated online map of the Ukrainian war immediately after the war began. The three started working on the situation map project as an unpaid side project alongside their work and studies. We try to weed out rumours and distinguish between true information and lies. You can follow the situation map service here.
Student loan forgiveness is not "free money".
Calling it “free money” makes it sound like student loan holders are getting an injection of free money to use as they see fit, which is far from the case. Here’s some facts on the issue of student loans that I’d like to share to help illuminate the actual issues surrounding student loans. When I talk about student loan forgiveness, I am talking about forgiving undergraduate loans, which will benefit most if not all student borrowers, not graduate loans. When I talk about student loan forgiveness, I am talking about forgiving undergraduate loans, which will benefit most if not all student borrowers, not graduate loans. Once you have student loan debt, you can’t get rid of it.
A Compromise on Guns?
They fear that if they agree to reasonable gun control, that will just be the first step toward a total ban on gun ownership. When you look at many mass shootings, the types of reasonable gun regulations that are being proposed would not have stopped those mass shootings. - There is zero chance in the foreseeable future for the Supreme Court to meaningfully limit or regulate guns, and in fact the more substantial chance is that the Court strikes down new gun regulations imposed by particular states. In my opinion, enough conservatives might go for a compromise that (i) eliminated their slippery slope concerns; but also (ii) allowed for reasonable gun control. Based on what has happened after every other mass shooting, I don’t see any material chance for reasonable gun regulation without this kind of compromise.
The Manchin Spider Enigma
He is an enigma to me. That is not good but that does not explain his position against most of the Democratic agenda, including Roe, gun control, the filibuster, etc. Could he be a republican plant and like a spider, little by little has been creating a web to capture and destroy Biden and the Democratic Agenda? I wrote the statistics about religious democrats and Republicans backwards and also, I said that in my 70 years I had not met a religious democrat. And I met one religious democrat.
Why the Ted Cruz Tweet is Fake and Yet 100% Real
The collection of Ted Cruz tweets showing that he has a template to respond to every mass shooting with the same tweet, isn't actually an "altered photo" as Facebook claims. And it isn’t actually a “Fake Tweet” as fact checkers claim. It is a piece of art. It is an artwork. It was purposefully and intentionally created by someone, as a work of art, to send a powerful message.

As a scholar of Blackfoot Indian culture and history, he is known for his ability to capture historically accurate detail in his sculptures. Shown below are some of the Scriver sculptures which are on display at the Old Fort Benton in Fort Benton, Montana. The Blackfoot Beaver Dance is shown above. According to the display:“The beaver bundle was the largest and oldest sacred bundle of the Blackfoot and is uniquely theirs. The part of the bundle opening ceremony depicted here is the Dance of the Beaver done by the wives of the Beaver Men.
Air Force Museum: Aviator jackets (photo diary)
According to the museum:World War II USAAF aviators often personalized their flight jackets (usually the popular leather A-2 jacket), using such painted decorations as unit insignia, artwork that appeared on their aircraft or a personal design. The extent of decoration varied, sometimes consisting only of a series of bombs or other symbols -- one for each mission. Other examples of jacket art were more elaborate. The wearer might paint the artwork himself or hire someone more talented. Displayed are examples of USAAF jacket art from the museum's collection.

The Daily Bucket- all vaxxed up and boosted...then it hit...and something about Burrowing Owls
This winter our small rural community of active 60, 70 and 80 year-old snowbirds was asked by Audubon-Southwest and Wild at Heart, Inc. to take on a Burrowing Owl relocation Downtown Owls project. Our Hope volunteers helped build 20 safe underground burrows with tents for 40 burrowing owls that had been displaced by Phoenix neighborhood and commercial developments. We’d worked hard to save all 40 Burrowing Owls. I can’t wait to get back this fall to see how our Burrowing Owls are thriving in their new habitat. I’ll bet you’ve never seen a burrowing owl eat a defrosted white mouse!

Besides humans, there is only one other known mammal that sings in rhythm, Madagascar's Indri Lemur
Besides humans, it is the only mammal found that can use rhythm. Savvy drummers know that when they plant a backbeat ever-so-slightly late, we perceive the rhythm as soulful or funky. Studies suggest that songbirds and parrots have some sense of rhythm, but evidence on the ability within other animals is sparse. That is, successive beats with a 1:1 ratio or a 1:2 ratio. This makes the indri the first known nonhuman mammal with rhythm.
What it's like...
It's been one year and 7 months since I lost my youngest child. I was in Seattle visiting my grandkids when I got the call from the coroner's office at 1am. Almost 20 months later and it's still a daily struggle not to break down and collapse at any moment. All the pain, all the sorrow, all the anguish, I feel, multiplied, by 4, by 10, by 19, by 58. I got news for them, the families and friends of the victims of their "freedom", will never be free again.

He rubbed his body across my calves hard enough to make my knees buckle. If Freddie lets you pet him you gotta enjoy it because he is a fickle little fur ball.

The NRA's thoughts & prayers have been answered: 'good woman with a gun' stops mass shooting
We don’t know yet. We don’t know why she had a pistol, if she was a guest at the party or just happened to be there by chance. We don’t know how much training she had, or how she feels about having had to use that gun to defend herself and others. We don’t know if that apartment complex had a crime problem and no confidence in the police. The gun lobby is going to be all over this as proof more guns everywhere is the solution to gun violence.
HOLY CR**: Trump's NRA Speech Showed He's Still Angry, Ignorant, and Severely Mentally Dysfunctional
However, among those remaining on the schedule were Sen. Ted Cruz and, of course, former reality TV game show host, Donald Trump. His speech was littered with tiresome tirades that have been festering within the pro-gun community for decades. Trump babbled that..."Whatever our differences may be on other issues, what on Earth is stopping Democrats from immediately passing measures to ramp up school security? x TRUMP: "Whatever our differences may be on other issues, what on Earth is stopping Democrats from immediately passing measures to ramp up school security?" Both Trump and the NRA refuse to acknowledge that guns are a significant factor in tragedies like the one that just occurred un Uvalde.
Abbreviated Pundit Roundup: The outrage at the shooting and the aftermath is growing
He acknowledged the school resource officer was not on the scene. McCraw followed that remark by making a rather revealing point. In defense of the officers on scene he said that there was “??a barrage—hundreds of rounds were pumped in four minutes into those classrooms.”Hundreds of rounds. Four minutes. When you cut away all the bullshit, and excuse making, and failure this is the crux of the matter.
Hitler-cosplaying insurrectionist found guilty after claiming he didn't know Congress met in Capitol
He claimed in testimony on Thursday that he didn't realize that senators and House members were in the Capitol building on Jan. 6. Was Ted Cruz in the bushes like Cyrano de Bergerac feeding this guy his lines? To be clear, I don’t really know what Ted Cruz does in the bushes, or if he’s even in the bushes at all. Okay, that’s close to being about Ted Cruz, but I’m starting to fear I’ve lost the plot. According to reports, Hale-Cusanelli told a federal prosecutor, "I didn't know the Capitol building was the same as the congressional building."

Science has answers to why conservatives fall so easily for COVID-19 and Russian propaganda
This is why fearmongering is used more often as a persuasion technique in right-wing media, and why conspiracies are more likely to take root in conservative thought. Glut of right-wing misinformationResearchers from The Ohio State University ran a study in 2021 on political views and media bias. He said invasion talk was “hysteria” and had a chyron under him that read: “NEWS OUTLETS ARE BEHAVING LIKE STATE MEDIA AND UNCRITICALLY PUSHING STATE DEPT PROPAGANDA.” The career diplomats at the State Department were lying. Right-wing media creates conspiracy theorists by trapping them in a vortex of fear. Fox News isn’t getting any better, as seen by their latest fearmongering on “great replacement theory.” It’s too bad right-wing media outlets don’t come with warning labels.
Indiana Republicans override governor's veto and force anti-trans sports bill into law
There is no documented proof of trans girls, for example, “stealing” or “taking” scholarships from cisgender girls. There is no evidence of trans girls “sneaking” into girls' teams in order to win awards or titles. There is nothing to prove that trans girls participating with cis girls harms anyone, period. It permits students who allege they’ve been harmed by a violation of the law to sue the school. Trans youth will be even more isolated than they already are, and will have even fewer resources for support.
The student loan crisis was caused by a pile of problems. It requires more than one solution
If student loan repayment was easy to navigate, and if the terms were fair, then perhaps there wouldn't be a crisis. We need to get to a place where student loan payments don’t leave borrowers feeling trapped by their loans. Blanket forgiveness or targeted forgiveness are two options that would help correct the years of government inaction that led to the student loan debt crisis. Another important feature of the Australian student loan system is that student loans are interest-free. Student loan debt is forever.

Who thought this was a good idea? Walmart pulls its tasteless 'Juneteenth' celebratory ice cream
Juneteenth ice cream? Walmart found itself in hot water after an attempt to co-opt the Juneteenth holiday—a move designed to sell red-velvet-and-cheesecake ice cream. After outrage erupted on social media when a photo of the ice cream went viral, the company has been forced to apologize and remove the offending dessert. Walmart has promised to “remove items as appropriate,” according to a statement to Fox Television Stations, adding that the “Juneteenth holiday marks a celebration of freedom and independence.

That is because the "gun problem" and the mass deaths it causes on a regular basis of course continues, repetitively. First let's deal with the matter of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, which, of course is always at the center of the Constitutional argument, in re "My/their 2nd Amendment Rights." But the gun industry front (more on that below), aided by the Repubs. who the NRA and the Gun Industry fund in massive amounts, just ran away with what even Scalia actually said. ignored the first two phrases of the 2nd, and pretend that its text begins with the words "the right."
Scott Ritter & Ray on Ukraine, Russia, China
Recent developments, including talks with Chinese officials, have fortified Scott's view that China remains extremely reluctant to go to war over Taiwan. Scott reiterated his longstanding view that Russian forces will prevail on the ground in Ukraine, adding that recently they have been performing in a very impressive, professional way. UPDATEIn this context, the trial-balloon-type media reports yesterday afternoon, after our interview, that the U.S. is preparing to send long-range rocket systems to Ukraine, takes on added importance. This is much farther than the systems currently in Ukraine's inventory, and could put Russia itself within range. This system has been sitting atop the long list of requests from Ukrainian officials, who say it is needed to curb advancing Russian forces in the Donbas.
Russian crude oil and South Asian politics
Russian oil is being supplied to Sri Lanka to produce fuel at its sole refinery as the bankrupt nation faces crippling shortages of everything from gasoline to diesel, Bloomberg reported Friday. Sri Lanka is the latest Asian nation to accept Russian crude after Moscow's invasion of Ukraine prompted widespread condemnation and sanctions. Not surprisingly, India's Minister of Commerce & Industry, Piyush Goyal defended India's purchase of Russian oil. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar remarked last month, in response to criticism of India's purchase of Russian oil, that India's entire purchases of Russian oil for a month were less than what Europe did in one afternoon. "Despite being part of the Quad, India sustained pressure from the US and bought discounted Russian oil to provide relief to the masses."

Boris Johnson Dodged a COVID Reckoning. Now He’s Doubling Down on Deportations.
As one commentator put it, “The [prime minister] has dodged a Partygate reckoning.”As recently as this January it had seemed that the Conservative government might be doomed. Prime Minister Johnson’s support remains, from this perspective, very thin. At the press conference where he announced the Rwanda plan, Prime Minister Johnson suggested that it would face legal challenge from his opponents. So why was the prime minister seemingly pleading with his opponents to sue him? Johnson has been prime minister all this time.
After Mass Shootings, Republicans Shield White Supremacists From Scrutiny
The bill would require federal agencies to document and report domestic terrorism threats, including white supremacists and neo-Nazis inside law enforcement agencies. Thanks to Trump and others on the far right, white supremacist ideologies such as “replacement theory” that motivated the Buffalo gunman are going mainstream among GOP voters. Like other Republicans, Roy argued the anti-terrorism bill would be used by the Biden administration to target right-wing activists. It’s no secret white supremacists and far right extremists have claimed far more lives with violent attacks in the U.S. than leftists. And Republicans rejected the focus on identifying white supremacists working in law enforcement.

School Shooting Survival Tips: What to Teach Your Kids
This story was originally published in October 2016 and updated this week in light of the tragic school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. "Plan for what you're going to do with the kids and how you're going to effectively manage your communication with parents and law enforcement." If they can hide, hide behind something concrete. "If I'm going to hide, I'm going to hide behind things that stop bullets like trees, structural pillars and big concrete planters," says Emerson. The reality is, with some confidence and knowing what you're going to do ahead of time, you actually have more of an advantage, especially if you're within striking distance."

What Is in the Flu Shot? Here's How Experts Explain Common Ingredients
When it comes to the flu shot, myths and misinformation abound—the most dangerous (and completely incorrect) claim being that you can actually get the flu from the flu shot. The thinking behind this—which isn't entirely incorrect—is because the flu shot itself contains the influenza virus. On that note, it's also important to point out that the flu shot isn't the same general vaccine administered year after year—annually, there are different variations of the flu shot, to pair with the popular circulating viruses. While there is not one flu shot ingredient list—since multiple flu shots are on offer every year—there are certain flu shot components that you’re likely to see if you look up what’s in the flu shot of your choosing. While it’s true that there is egg protein in many flu shots—because many flu vaccines are made in chicken eggs—having an egg allergy doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get the flu shot.
How To Tell What Kind Of Headache You Have, And How To Treat It
That said, your headache symptoms can help you (and your doctor) determine which type of headache you're experiencing. Migraines, for example, can often be mistaken for sinus headaches, since symptoms like sinus pressure, nasal congestion, and watery eyes can happen in both types. A true sinus headache is related to an infection and comes with nasal discharge that is green or tinged with red, says Dr. Goadsby. Migraines are more likely to happen in the morning, or medication may be waning in your body as you sleep, which causes a rebound headache, Dr. Goadsby says. Dr. Flippen recommends over-the-counter headache remedies; magnesium supplements may also help PMS-related head pain.

The Symptoms and Causes of Monkeypox, as Virus Cases Rise Globally
Though people in the U.S. are urged to practice caution—not panic—regarding the monkeypox cases, here's what you need to know about the virus, including symptoms, transmission, and treatment or prevention options. Monkeypox is similar to other poxviruses like the virus that causes smallpox, the virus used in the smallpox vaccine, and the virus that causes cowpox. Israel, Singapore, and the U.K., have also seen monkeypox cases in the past. According to Dr. Weisenberg, most monkeypox cases come from "direct animal exposure, such as with infected rodents." "That being said, those who experience new or unusual rashes or other symptoms of monkeypox should contact their healthcare provider."
Even People Who No Longer Menstruate Saw COVID Vaccine-Related Period Symptoms, Research Shows
Even people who don't typically menstruate—including transgender people, people on long-acting contraceptives, and post-menopausal women—have experienced menstrual changes and unexpected bleeding after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, new preliminary research shows. "I hope that this study adds to the increasing evidence that maybe we should include periods as part of vaccine research more broadly. Of the people not menstruating due to gender-affirming hormones, 39% experienced breakthrough bleeding; 71% of people on long-acting contraceptives also experienced breakthrough bleeding. In addition, people who experienced more side effects after the shots—like fever or fatigue—had a greater chance of experiencing menstrual changes, as well. The menstrual changes from any vaccine—including the COVID-19 vaccine—are short-lived and appear to have no impact on future fertility.
Increased Cancer Risk Tied to Wildfires Amid Worsening Impacts of Climate Change
The research is one of the first supporting a link between wildfire exposure and cancer risk. But wildfire exposure affects so many people around the world that even a small cancer risk is cause for concern, he said. In addition, the researchers did not see a correlation between particularly high exposure to wildfires and a more greatly increased cancer risk. This doesn't necessarily mean that more severe wildfires wouldn't increase cancer risk even more, cautioned Weichenthal. "I think we worry a lot about the acute effects, the very short-term effects," Wold said.
Mental Illness and Gun Violence: Why It's Harmful to Link the Two
Greg Abbott of Texas blamed the violence on mental health issues, even though he said the shooter had "no known mental health history." But implicating mental illness as the cause of the bloodshed is not only wrong, it's harmful, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) said in a statement shared Wednesday. Mental Health and Mass Shootings in AmericaSo is there a connection between mental illness and gun violence? By focusing exclusively on mental illness, "you might miss all the aspects of violence and determinants of violence that have nothing at all to do with mental illness," he said. In consistently linking gun violence to mental illness, "we risk even further stigmatizing people who may be experiencing mental health problems," she added.
Kidney Disease Patients Face Increased Risk of Developing Cancer, Study Shows
People with mild-to-moderate chronic kidney disease (CKD), and those who have received kidney transplants, may have an increased risk of developing cancer, new research shows. Study authors note that while cardiovascular disease has traditionally been viewed as the main health risk associated with the disease, cancer isn't too far behind. The risk of cancer was higher in people with mild-to-moderate kidney disease (characterized as CKD G3a) and patients who had undergone kidney transplants, than people without kidney disease. Mitigating Cancer Risk if You Have Kidney DiseaseOne of the ways to prevent the types of cancers associated with kidney disease is to prevent kidney disease altogether. While genetics can contribute to kidney disease, Dr. Kitchlu said lifestyle factors such as controlling blood pressure, maintaining healthy blood sugar levels, and preventing obesity can reduce the risk of developing kidney disease.

Ray Liotta, Star of Goodfellas, Dead at 67
Ray Liotta, the charismatic wiseguy star of classic films like Goodfellas, has died. However, Liotta’s most memorable role will always be that of Henry Hill, the charismatic wiseguy he portrayed in Martin Scorsese’s 1990 mob epic Goodfellas.

Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Broker Enters the Gray World of the Black Market
Broker premiered on the second-to-last day of screenings here at the festival, and it proves well worth the wait. Gentle, sad, and funny in a just-shy-of-cutesy way, Broker continues Kore-eda’s tradition of handling tough subject matter with a light touch. The film’s title refers to an illegal profession: the black market selling of babies, done to circumvent the bureaucratic and financial headaches of legal adoption. Just as in Shoplifters, there is a bittersweet resolution in Broker, but not one that is in any way tidy. It’s in that messiness, in Kore-eda’s allowance for and understanding of it, that the film finds its true empathy.
Riley Keough and Gina Gammell Had to Fight Every Step of the Way for War Pony

Keough became fast friends with the pair, visiting Pine Ridge often, and soon bringing in her friend and production partner Gina Gammell. “We would hang out and while we were hanging out, we would film things or make little V.R. But the world of film financing is still dominated by white men, and Keough and Gammell were repeatedly told that War Pony wasn’t relatable enough. “We were like, ‘Why are we making this about white people when that’s not how this was birthed?’” says Keough.
U.K. Authorizes Sexual Assault Charges Against Kevin Spacey
British prosecutors have authorized charging Kevin Spacey with four counts of sexual assault against three men, as well as one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent. “The CPS has authorized criminal charges against Kevin Spacey, 62, for four counts of sexual assault against three men,” said Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS special crime division. Editor’s Note: This post was updated after Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) issued a correction to say that Kevin Spacey has not yet been charged with multiple counts of sexual assault.

After 19 years worth of giveaways, games, and yes, grooving, Ellen DeGeneres ended her long-running talk show on Thursday. DeGeneres devoted her final monologue to talking about the societal progress we’ve seen since Ellen launched in September 2003. “When we started the show, I couldn’t say ‘gay.’ I was not allowed to say ‘gay.’ I say it at home a lot—you know, ‘What are we having for our gay breakfast?’ or ‘Pass the gay salt,’ ‘Has anyone seen the gay remote?’—but we couldn’t say ‘gay.’ I couldn’t say ‘we,’ because that would imply that I was with someone. Sure couldn’t say ‘wife,’ and that’s because it wasn’t legal for gay people to get married.”“Now I say ‘wife’ all the time,” she continued, as the camera showed her spouse of nearly 15 years, Portia de Rossi. Jennifer Aniston, the first-ever Ellen guest, dropped by to give DeGeneres advice about concluding an iconic series.

“Long, Difficult, and So Painful”: Princess Charlene On Her Recovery From Extended Illness
Ever since April 30, Princess Charlene has eased back into her royal duties with appearances at a Monaco E-Prix race and a rugby tournament organized by her charity. Before the pair left for the awards, Charlene posted a photograph with her daughter on Instagram, both wearing iridescent dresses. According to the Daily Mail, Charlene presented an award to Saudi fashion designer Abdul Al-Romaizan, whose work also opened the show. “This mother/daughter fashion outing for the Monte-Carlo Fashion Awards delighted me and for the first time we went on stage together. The road has been long, difficult, and so painful.”While Charlene and Gabriella were at the awards ceremony, Albert and son Prince Jacques attended an all-star soccer match at the Louis II stadium.
Matthew McConaughey: “We Must Do Better” After School Shooting in His Hometown of Uvalde
“Once again, we have tragically proven that we are failing to be responsible for the rights our freedoms grant us,” he began. “This is an epidemic we can control,” he wrote, “and whichever side of the aisle we may stand on, we all know we can do better. Texas Governor Greg Abbott identified the shooter as Salvador Ramos, an 18-year-old who lived in Uvalde. As a nation we have to ask, when in God's name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When in God's name we will do what we all know in our gut needs to be done?”
Kate Middleton Wears Another Monochromatic Look to the Buckingham Palace Garden Party
Kate Middleton appears to have found her tried and true formula for garden party dressing. The Duchess of Cambridge wore another monochromatic ensemble to attend the third garden party of the season hosted at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday. Kate also previously wore this dress in 2019 when she attended a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Prince Charles's Investiture. Kate is clearly loving a monochromatic look for these garden parties as when she attended the first one of the season on May 14, she also went with head-to-toe coral. Buckingham Palace's annual summer garden parties are a tradition dating back to the 1860s.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are thrilled to finally have their daughter Malti Marie at home after she spent 100 days in the newborn intensive care unit.

Happy Mother’s Day. In Vanity Fair’s February 2022 cover story ahead of this announcement, Chopra also discussed that she and Jonas were ready to become parents.

“So Much Fun It’s Ridiculous”: Nicholas Hoult on Learning to Race Ferraris
Nicholas Hoult has been playing with cars for as long as he can remember. Though he’d completed the thorough training, driving a race car still required a steep and surprising learning curve. “I mean, I couldn’t even figure out how to turn it on at first,” Hoult said, laughing. Hoult has been in the business for a long time, so his first vehicular splurge was not exactly typical. Shortly thereafter, Hoult had his most humiliating vehicular experience, though it wasn’t in his Italian hatchback, and he wasn’t driving.

After Uvalde, Niecy Nash Recalls Losing Her Brother in a 1993 School Shooting
Tuesday's school shooting in Uvalde, Texas hit particularly close to home for Niecy Nash who lost her own brother in a school shooting almost thirty years ago. “I'm so sad,” the actress shared with her fans on social media on Wednesday, adding, “my brother was killed on his high school campus. In February 1993, Nash's brother Michael Ensley was shot and killed when he was just 17 years old by a 16-year-old gunman at Reseda High School in California. “25 yrs ago today, my only brother, Michael Ensley, was killed on his high school campus by kid with a gun,” she tweeted. #NeverAgain.”On Tuesday, at least 19 students in second, third, and fourth grade, as well as two teachers, were killed during a mass shooting.
Who Would the Queen Be Without Her Pearl Earrings and Necklaces?
The queen has an incomparable jewelry collection that she doesn’t always get a chance to show off, but the stalwarts in her wardrobe are her vast collection of pearl necklaces. Her grandmother, Queen Mary, left her one of her favorite pairs of earrings, large single-button pearls with a tiny diamond affixed to each. On her wedding day, the queen’s parents gave her two pearl necklaces that belonged to Anne and Caroline, two queens from the 17th and 18th centuries. While the button-pearl earrings are in her regular rotation, she only brings out the Queen Anne and Queen Caroline necklaces, with their sumptuous and creamy spheres, on rare occasions. At that time, The New York Times reported on Elizabeth’s penchant for biting Mary’s pearl necklaces.
Jeff Bridges Was “Pretty Close to Dying” After Contracting COVID-19 While Undergoing Chemotherapy
Jeff Bridges is treasuring the time he gets to spend with his wife, grandkids, and new puppy these days after nearly facing death twice over. It all started when he felt something in his stomach while exercising, prompting him to visit a doctor who told him that he “had a 12-by-9-in. Bridges was quickly diagnosed with cancer and began undergoing chemotherapy infusion treatments followed by oral chemo. Thankfully, however, Bridges was able to receive a convalescent plasma treatment, a therapy that uses blood from those who have recovered from COVID-19, and began to see improvements in his health. Bridges said he began working with a physical therapist three times a week and “started taking baby steps” towards recovery.
Louis Vuitton Reveals New Trophy Travel Case for the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix
For the second year in a row, Louis Vuitton teamed up with the Automobile Club of Monaco to create a new trophy travel case for the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco. The case was crafted by hand in Louis Vuitton's historic Asnières workshop located on the outskirts of Paris.

The Glossier Sale Is Here—With Product Picks by Jenna Lyons, Donni Davy & More
“Everyone around me—in many ages and many professions—is on Instagram at least three times a day,” Emily Weiss said in 2014, the year she launched Glossier on the platform in a then-renegade move. Today’s average Screen Time report proves that we’ve come a long way from “three times a day,” to say nothing of the TikTok effect. The lineup of cult products runs the gamut from Boy Brow (early to the fluffy, tweezer-averse trend) to results-oriented serums. And just this week, Weiss tapped Kyle Leahy to be the new Glossier CEO, with the founder leaning into new roles: executive chairwoman and, soon, mother. But this roundup is just as much about replenishing the creative reserves as the literal ones.
Meghan Markle Traveled to Uvalde to Honor Robb Elementary Shooting Victims
But after the mass shooting in Uvalde that took the lives of 19 children and two teachers, Meghan opted for an in-person tribute at Robb Elementary School. According to a spokesperson for the couple, Meghan traveled to Uvalde on Thursday in a personal capacity “as a mother” to express her condolences and provide support for the community. Meghan was photographed at Robb wearing a t-shirt, jeans, and a pair of sneakers and carrying a bouquet of white roses. She laid the roses down in front of a cross, one of 19 erected on the elementary school’s grounds to honor the victims. When Meghan and Harry were wed in May 2018, she carried a bouquet of white roses and forget-me-nots, which were said to be Diana’s favorite flower.
John Galliano Gowns, Royal Ascot, and Kelp Farms: Meet the Fourth Generation of Gettys
At a dinner party, she met Brown University undergraduate Joseph Getty, the British-raised son of Italian aristocrat Domitilla Harding and Getty Images cofounder Mark Getty (a son of JPG’s third born, Paul Jr.). Thirty-three years after Mark and Domitilla were wed inside the ancient basilica, Joseph and Sabine chose to exchange their vows here. Tatler subsequently ranked Sabine and Joseph number three in its “Social Power Index,” just behind the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Beau’s mother, Claire Perry, is one of the three daughters born to JPG’s first son, George. “I want you to dress Vanessa,” she told him, according to Boaz Mazor, a longtime de la Renta executive.

2022 Tony Awards: 'Strange Loop,' 'MJ' and 'Paradise Square' Take Top Nominations
On Monday, the nominees for the 75th Annual Tony Awards, honoring the best of Broadway from the 2021-2022 season, were announced by Tony Award-winning actress Adrienne Warren and three-time Tony-nominated actor Joshua Henry. The revival of Company, starring Broadway great Patti Lupone, also made waves, being honored with nine nominations while Six, the musical based on the stories of King Henry VIII's infamous wives, took a close eight.

For plays, The Lehman Trilogy scored the most nominations with eight, while standout shows such as Hangman and American Buffalo earned nominations with lead actors including Sam Rockwell and David Threlfall nabbing nominations for best performance by an actor in a leading role in a play. The popular play earned a total of three nominations, but Negga's costar, James Bond actor Daniel Craig, was snubbed for his role as Macbeth.
Why Billionaires and Celebrities Are Tripping Over Themselves to Buy Chelsea F.C.
You see, in my head, I’m on the cusp of owning an English Premier League football club. Two days after Russia invaded Ukraine, oligarch Roman Abramovich promised to step back and hand over “stewardship and care” of Chelsea F.C. There are only 20 Premier League clubs, so any time one hits the market, it’s billionaire catnip. But we’re also not talking about any Premier League club. Chelsea F.C.
She Invented Adulting. Her Life Fell Apart. She Wants You to Know That’s Okay.
Conveniently, Williams Brown wrote a third book last summer to answer that question, which will be released in paperback by Penguin Random House on May 10. No matter how clean your tub is, your life can still fall apart along the way. Over Zoom from her home in Salem, Oregon, I chatted with Williams Brown in early March about her memoir, the endurance of Adulting, and the question of resilience, especially during a collectively agonizing time. (A few weeks later, Williams Brown informed me she’d been accepted to Lewis & Clark College’s masters program for mental health counseling.) Kelly Williams Brown: Well, I was really signing people up for disappointment.
Read an Exclusive Excerpt From Miss Chloe: A Memoir of a Literary Friendship with Toni Morrison
So, I don’t call without making sure I’ve done all I have to do. Making a call to Miss Chloe was like gray scale, a preprinted item on my running list of important things to do. Miss Chloe is yelling at me. Buy Miss Chloe: A Memoir of Literary Friendship with Toni Morisson on Amazon or HarperCollins. “Am I on speakerphone, Miss Chloe?” I asked.
“Serious Money Has the Ability to Distort Reality”: Hernan Diaz on His New Novel
Tucked away in a corner of Brooklyn’s Othmer Library, Hernan Diaz waves his hand over a shelf of 19th-century land records. The library has granted Diaz a private visit for an interview about his new novel, Trust, published by Riverhead Books this week. Technically, Diaz is an author of historical fiction, insofar that his books are set in the past. Diaz lives about one mile and 100 years from the world of his new novel. When the situation in Argentina was safer, his family returned, but Diaz felt an international itch he needed to scratch.
Radhika Jones Introduces TV Galaxies Far, Far Away and Close to Home
The Star Wars universe seemed plenty big back when we waited years between movies to catch up on what was happening in that galaxy far, far away. But like our own universe, it’s still expanding, 10 years after George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to the Walt Disney Company. If the expansion of the overall TV universe evokes the views of Einstein, then the nature of its evolution right now feels Darwinian: ever more varied, complex, and competitive. Two years ago the photojournalist Alex Majoli traveled to Sicily for Vanity Fair to document the terrifying first wave of COVID-19. This spring Alex traveled to Ukraine to photograph a different deadly European front.
7 Books We Can’t Stop Talking About
Eliot’s “cruelest month” only to tumble headlong into one in which the leaked draft of a majority ruling illustrated a Supreme Court poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. Would choose burgeoning lilacs over being forced to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, but go off, Thomas! I read and wrote about the first book on this list before the draft posted online; afterwards, a scene from the book stood out in retrospect. When she requests an abortion, the physician who confirmed the pregnancy advises against it. The nurses and doctor treat her well, but she “could not stop crying.
“Who Do You Think You Are?”: Patti LuPone Calls Out Anti-Masker In Company Audience
Patti LuPone isn't looking for the company of anti-maskers. the Company star can be heard shouting in a 36-second video captured by an audience member who later shared the recording on Twitter. Chris Harper pays my salary,” Lupone said of the Elliot & Harper producer responsible for bringing the Company revival back to the Broadway stage. LuPone's off-script message for the anti-masker audience member comes two months after her grand return to the stage following a bout with COVID-19. Plus, LuPone and her Company cast have many reasons to be cheerful.
Inside Balenciaga’s Unprecedented Fashion Show at the New York Stock Exchange
“Let me ask you a question,” said one of the executives of the parent company that owns the stock exchange, motioning to the fashion show attendees standing around us. Balenciaga’s show pulled in more artists than any other fashion boondoggle I’ve ever witnessed, even the ones that get inches in Artforum. Anne Imhof came with her dealer, Daniel Buchholz, while her partner, Eliza Douglas, was already inside ready to walk. Stock exchange employees led guests into a waiting room and then through a disorienting series of anterooms—until, with a shock, there it was, the trading pit. One writer asked me if this was the actual stock exchange or just a set built by the brand, and for a second, I wasn’t sure.
“We Got Very Creative”: Alicia Graf Mack on Leading Juilliard’s Dancers Into a New Era
On a drizzly February afternoon in Manhattan, the labyrinthine halls inside the Juilliard School are quietly humming. Alicia Graf Mack, director of the dance division, is waiting at the far end of the corridor, backed by windows overlooking the Broadway traffic and Lincoln Center next door. “When I left Ailey [in 2014], they gave me my fan, so I framed it,” Graf Mack says, gesturing to the flat rattan paddle on her office wall. “I love being in higher education at this age because they already come in with so much talent,” Graf Mack says of that technical foundation, upon which dancers seek to develop a more nuanced kind of artistry. He preceded Graf Mack at the school by a year and is himself a former principal with New York City Ballet.
BeReal and the Never-Ending Quest to Uncover (and Ruin) the Next It App
Each day, the app pings out a random, simultaneous notification that prompts users to capture and post whatever’s in the line of sight of both front- and back-facing smartphone cameras. You can only view your friends’ selfie-photo composite once you’ve posted yours; the next day, it starts all over again. But it does undermine BeReal’s seemingly purist premise: Save Instagram for the end-of-the-month “photo dumps” while you continue curating your day on yet another app. So if BeReal isn’t really that novel of an app, its growing popularity is perhaps better understood as an indictment of our current state of social media. Much like the most recent fad app, Wordle, BeReal is an enjoyable experience primarily for what it’s not: There’s no heavy-handed algorithm calling the shots, no deluge of ads and brands flooding the feed.
12 of This Spring’s Best Art Books
Surprising herself, July stayed on the line and even asked the caller questions in return, which started a series of exchanges via phone and Instagram DMs for the next six months. Originally published by Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin, this limited edition book sculpture unfolds, concertina-style, to 23 feet long and includes 4 museum-grade inkjet prints. Within the pages, selections from their Instagram conversations are printed verbatim, along with images that Benedicto shares in response to July’s assignments. They begin simply, with July suggesting they share images of themselves bowing in front of someone or something that they love. (July paid Benedicto for the assignments, like she would an actress on a set.)
Austin Butler Captures the Lions Share of Oscar Buzz at Cannes
As the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival comes to a close, V.F.’s Rebecca Ford and Richard Lawson, have a chat about what, if anything, 12 days on the Croisette told them about next year’s Oscars. Richard Lawson: Last year’s Cannes saw the debut of Drive My Car, which would go on to snag myriad critics awards and a small handful of Oscar nominations, with one win. Sure, Cannes did premiere the Elton John biopic Rocketman in similarly grand fashion in 2019, to little Oscar result. As I said in my review, though, director Baz Luhrmann keeps Butler, and Elvis, at a curious distance in the film. So I’m curious what you saw here that gave you that old Oscar tingle in the brain.
Bridgerton Star Ruby Barker Hospitalized For Her Mental Health After Being “Really Unwell”
After experiencing the whirlwind success that comes with being on a hit show like Bridgerton, Ruby Barker announced that she is taking some time off as she gets her mental health back on track. And people used to always tell me not to be so hard on myself, and I never really, really knew what that meant.” She also noted that before seeking professional help she was “rage-filled, frustrated, [and] angry” because of “all this intergenerational trauma bundled up inside me. But I have a diagnosis, and I am relinquishing myself and forgiving myself and drawing a line in the sand. I want to survive and I will survive, and I'm going to. If you're with me, you're in good hands.
Art Isn’t Easy for Michelle Williams in Showing Up
But what of the far more common in-between experience: the friendly nods of recognition, the wan words of approval. Michelle Williams, long a muse of Reichardt’s, plays Lizzie, a sculptor who pays her bills by working in administration at a Portland, Oregon arts college. Jo saves a pigeon that’s been attacked by Lizzie’s cat and then blithely leaves the broken bird in Lizzie’s care. Maybe that analogy is a little on the nose, but sometimes good art is just that. When that day arrives—all of Lizzie’s lovely little sculptures arrayed on a single pedestal (that’s it!

Jennifer Aniston Started Therapy and a “New Chapter” After Divorce from Brad Pitt and Friends Finale
Aniston stopped by the series finale of The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday where she discussed both the end of her marriage to Brad Pitt and the finale of Friends occurring back-to-back. When asked how she dealt with the hugely successful 10-season who coming to an end, she told DeGeneres with a laugh, “Well, I got a divorce and went into therapy. It worked great.”After almost five years of marriage, Aniston and Pitt announced they were separating in January 2005, finalizing their divorce in October of that year. To stay in a marriage based on fear feels like you're doing your one life a disservice. When the work has been put in and it doesn't seem that there's an option of it working, that's okay.
Katie Holmes and Boyfriend Bobby Wooten III Make Their Red Carpet Debut
Katie Holmes and her new boyfriend, Bobby Wooten III, just made their relationship red carpet official. Wooten, on the other hand, went for a simple, teal Paul Smith wool and mohair suit with a black button-down and pocket square. A source confirmed to People that Wooten is “an amazing guy, very kind, super talented and just an all-around cool guy. Prior to that relationship, Holmes was previously married to Tom Cruise for six years, announcing their divorce in 2012. She then went on to date Jamie Foxx for several years before they went their separate ways in 2019.
David Cronenberg Had to Convince Viggo Mortensen to Star in Crimes of the Future
David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen first met at the Cannes Film Festival in 2001 at a promotional party for Lord of the Rings, in which Mortensen starred as Aragorn. It was a chance encounter that would lead to a two-decade collaboration spanning four films— but Mortensen doesn’t really remember it. Viggo Mortensen: Yeah, we keep trying. Cronenberg: The first thing was that Viggo didn't want to play the lead role. Whereas the lead role — this is just me imagining, we haven't really discussed it — is odd, complex, kind of passive, reactive.
Carolyn Maloney and Jerry Nadler, New York’s Congressional Warhorses, Gird for Battle
But this is what happens when last-minute court rulings and a “special master” rip up New York congressional district lines and set off intramural warfare. Two of the city’s political warhorses, Carolyn Maloney and Jerry Nadler, are now pitted against each other. Nadler can also point to bills passed, but his campaign will likely lean more heavily on liberal and cultural cred. Patel, 38, is in the 2022 field as well, offering a younger, outsider alternative to Maloney and Nadler. Thirty years later, redistricting might end the long political career of either Maloney or Nadler—or maybe both.
The Best and Worst of Cannes 2022
It’s a film festival where you go to empty out and fill back up again, a shedding and an acquiring. I didn’t cry at this year’s Cannes until almost the very end. Another major letdown was Claire Denis’s Stars at Noon, a Nicaragua-set romantic thriller that fails to seduce or excite. Maybe that is the mark of a successful Cannes film. For the time being, I am a cautious fan, enamored of Kore-eda’s nimble blending of accessible storytelling and auteury flourish.
Republicans’ “Good Guy With a Gun” Calls Look Even More Absurd in Wake of Disastrous Police Response During Texas School Shooting
Twitter content This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from. Twitter content This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from. The Texas suspect, Salvador Ramos, didn’t exactly sneak in a side door at Robb Elementary School before starting his shooting spree. Witness accounts from the scene outside of the elementary school suggest a catastrophic failure on the part of the police who, again, conservatives routinely insist negate the need for stronger gun control. National school security expert Kenneth Trump told the Post the delay will be difficult to explain away.
Stranger Things: What Does that Wild Ending Mean for Hawkins?
This post contains major spoilers for Stranger Things. In the final seconds of season 4 of Stranger Things, it’s revealed in bloody, violent fashion that the kindly orderly with a preternatural interest in Eleven isn’t just the very first patient of Dr. Brenner’s (aka One). He’s also Vecna, the Upside Down villain who has been killing teens left and right all season long. Stranger Things has cultivated such an obsessive fanbase that every episode is dissected at length for clues, likely creating headache upon headache for the Duffer brothers as they seek to up the ante each season. But, even if it’s occasionally confusing to keep up with the show’s expanding Upside Down logic (how does Eleven’s memory tank work, exactly?
Stranger Things: Meet Joe Quinn, the Englishman Behind Eddie Munson
The way Joe Quinn tells it, it was suspiciously easy landing a role on Stranger Things. Did his stint on the fantasy HBO series, a juggernaut with an obsessive global audience, prepare him even a little bit to dive into the sprawling world of Stranger Things? “Unfortunately, I don’t have the bone structure for that.”Most importantly, he worked with vocal coach to perfect his American accent. “I would take the accent out for dinner and order in an American accent and feel insane. But it’s better to look like an idiot in front of your friends than, you know, loads of people.”Despite being a newcomer, Quinn felt surprisingly at home with the Stranger Things cast.
We Don’t Deserve Beto O’Rourke
The only public figure with the guts to confront cynical Republicans over gun laws and the Texas massacre was a defiant Democrat who the media class long ago dismissed: gubernatorial nominee Beto O’Rourke. Inside the Hive cohosts Emily Jane Fox and Joe Hagan grapple with the horrors of this week’s events in Uvalde, Texas, and what they say about our broken politics and national backslide. When rare instances of idealism and courage are framed by political elites as mere opportunism, is there any hope left? Where do we go from here?

Twitter Investors Suing Elon Musk Is Only Ratcheting Up the Takeover Tensions
The lawsuit comes on the heels of a shareholder meeting this week, during which Twitter’s executives reportedly didn’t address Musk’s bid. Musk did not attend, but the Tesla CEO loomed large over the conversations, and shareholders appear to be splitting along pro-Musk and anti-Musk lines. “Elon Musk likes to transact amongst chaos and use that to his advantage,” Douglas Boneparth, a member of CNBC’s Digital Financial Advisor Council, tells Vanity Fair. In mid-May he tweeted that the acquisition was “temporarily on hold,” amid an overall market decline that led to massive Twitter and Tesla stock declines. In the wake of the recent market decline and dip in Tesla’s stock price, Musk has opted to revise his financing plan for the Twitter deal.
Joe Manchin Says “This Time Feels Different” — Again
Can Joe Manchin succeed at something he’s failed many, many times before? “I can’t get my grandchildren out of my mind.”“It feels different right now,” he said. Manchin says he’s more hopeful this time around. “I’ve never been more encouraged by more activity from my Republican colleagues and Democrat colleagues,” he said. “I can remember after Sandy Hook, I didn’t have anybody coming to the table.” Maybe that’s so, but with Manchin and the Republicans, it’s hard to believe it until you actually see it.

Meet the Ultra-Organized Teenager Masterminding Parkland’s Midterms Push
In Tallahassee, they hoped to extract unlikely promises of new gun regulations from a state legislature controlled by Republicans. The eight-hour journey itself was now a media spectacle, leading national newscasts, and the governor had agreed to meet. That’s when one of the bus drivers demanded that Jackie pay for his Tallahassee hotel room. “He got out of the bus and started walking away,” Jackie told me later. “Get on your bus.” A school-board member agreed to chaperone, but kept chatting with me after the buses were loaded.

“There Has to Be a Line”: Substack’s Founders Dive Headfirst Into the Culture Wars
One day last June, Patti Smith opened her laptop, typed a brief message to the thousands of readers of her Substack newsletter, and hit Send. Four months after discovering Anderson through her Substack, Smith stood onstage with him in the darkness of Glasgow’s Theatre Royal. More recently, the company has found itself on the front lines of the culture wars.
