The 5 Key Dos And Don’ts Of Wearing SPF
       
British Vogue asked dermatologist Dr Sam Bunting for the five key dos and don’ts of SPF – so you can absorb that much-needed vitamin D with confidence. Do: Choose a broad spectrum SPFTo protect skin against both UVA and UVB light – both of which cause damage to the skin – broad spectrum SPF is a must. “What’s really crucial when we’re talking about a good skincare routine is blocking the daily UVA rays which are present all year round,” explains Dr Bunting. UV light is a known entity that not only causes premature ageing but also cancer, and they are both proven without a shadow of a doubt. Both of those things are highly preventable,” Dr Bunting says.
Holi 2021: How to protect your skin and hair before you play
       
But if colours are part of the plan for you this year, it is best to prep your skin and hair before you play. How to prep for Holi before you play“Avoid facials, waxing or threading or laser treatments in the week preceding Holi. Before you play, slather your skin, body and hair with a barrier cream or oil to prevent colour from sticking. To protect your body skin from colour, wear clothes that cover most body parts. How to get rid of the Holi colour from your skin and scalpDr Pai suggests against scrubbing or over-zealously washing the skin as that could cause tears or micro-injuries in the skin, which can promote infection, acne or rashes.

Find a way to workout, even when you travelChopra is always on the go, and her travel schedule means that a regular gym workout may not always be possible.

5 common mistakes you make that could be impacting your sleep
       
If the statistics are anything to go by, good quality sleep is less easy to come by nowadays. Drinking alcohol (and caffeine)Are you aware that even just a glass of wine can impact the quality of your sleep? “Alcohol is a sedative so while you might lose consciousness quicker upon getting into bed, you’re not actually falling asleep quicker,” says Maja Schaedel, clinical psychologist and co-founder of The Good Sleep Clinic. “One of the problems I’m seeing a lot during lockdown is that clients eat their dinner earlier then get peckish later on,” she says, advising against this for good sleep. A common problem among her clients, having a nap (wherever it may be) reduces “sleep pressure” (or the mounting movement throughout the day towards sleep) which means that when one goes up to bed, you’re wired or can’t sleep.

Kylie Jenner’s Latest Manicure Combines Every Single Nail Trend Into One
       
On March 24, Jenner revealed her latest manicure (from right-hand nail artist Chaun Legend) on TikTok and Instagram Stories… and we’re not even sure where to begin describing it. First thing’s first, this look is painted on what appear to be gel extensions or acrylics in the lengthy, rectangular shape Jenner’s long been known for. Each nail has a multi-colored retro swirl design that’s only on the tips — and each nail’s swirl pattern has a different color scheme. Instead of dipping her brush straight into the polish, she drags the brush through it, going in different directions to fully saturate the bristles.

How It Feels To Navigate The Dating World When You’re Non-Binary
       
© NineSince coming out as non-binary, I haven’t really dipped my toe back in the dating pool. When we have such strict lines, gay men are attracted to “men”, straight men are attracted to “women”, people like myself slip between the cracks. Men like men or men like women, that’s it. Personally, I don’t really have a clear idea yet on what non-binary romance looks like, or feels like. I’m not a man, and I’m not a woman, but I am a human.
“I Still Believe In Every Word We Chanted”: 10 Years On, Waad Al-Kateab Shares Her Memories Of The Syrian Revolution
       
As for so many, the pandemic has upended our lives: schools are closed; we must work at home; we’re isolated. A virus has us under siege, and I am reminded in a way I didn’t expect of life in war-torn Syria. I was 20 years old and a student at the University of Aleppo when everything changed for my country. Enormous crowds gathered in Assi Square in Hama; hundreds around the giant clock in Homs; thousands of students – myself among them – at Aleppo university. Suddenly, millions of us were fighting together for a new way of life, protecting each other, beating with one heart.

Lil Nas X Has Precisely Zero Tolerance For The Homophobic Backlash To His Epic “Montero” Video
       
As music videos go, it hardly gets more seismic than Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”. It sees Lil Nas reinterpret Michelangelo’s “The Creation of Adam” in his own magnificent style. Naturally, certain sections of the internet (namely, the ones still trying to get over “WAP”) had some thoughts on this, but Lil Nas is having none of the homophobic backlash. In response to claims that his video is part of a “system” intended to corrupt American youth, the Georgia native responded on Twitter: “There was no system involved. The agenda to make people stay the fuck out of other people’s lives and stop dictating who they should be.
Most DEI efforts fail. Here are 4 strategies to ensure they don’t
       
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) rose to prominence in the 1960s , driven by Civil Rights legislation. Now, as racial awakening has brought DEI back into focus, it’s hard to find a U.S. company that hasn’t prioritized diversity and inclusion over the past year. While each era helped advance the national conversation, change has been limited, especially at the top of the corporate ladder. Why progress has been so incrementalAlongside the renewed focus on diversity hiring, there’s a silent undercurrent pushing in the other direction. These employees start to receive fewer opportunities, less exposure to senior executives, and fewer chances to learn and improve.

Saturday Night Live season 46, episode 15 recap: Maya Rudolph
       
Maya Rudolph hosting 'SNL' Image zoom Maya Rudolph hosting 'SNL' | Credit: NBCI am joined tonight by former SNL cast member Patrick Weathers. Let's jump into the fray and see what Rudolph, and tonight's musical guest Jack Harlow have to offer! It is so excellent seeing season 10 cast member Short back on the show, especially since Rudolph worked with him on their own (ill-fated) variety show. Next up: Bowen Yan, who Jost introduces as the "Asian cast member." The short ends with Rudolph in a photo of the original cast — spooky and brilliant way to wrap this up.

Unreleased Woody Allen CBS Sunday Morning Interview to Stream on Paramount+
       
Photo: Gari Garaialde/Getty ImagesThis morning, almost two weeks after HBO concluded its four-part docusieres Allen v. Farrow, CBS Sunday Morning announced that they will air their own special on “the career and controversy surrounded filmmaker Woody Allen,” featuring a sit-down interview with the director himself, on Paramount+ Sunday, March 28. According to the network’s press release, Sunday’s CBS Sunday Morning: The Woody Allen Interview, anchored by Lee Cowan, will be comprised of an unaired Woody Allen interview from 2020, a 2018 CBS This Morning interview with Dylan Farrow, and a report from Erin Moriarty on “controversial artists and their art.” Cowan reportedly sat down with Allen last July to discuss the director’s memoir Apropos of Nothing, which was published on March 23 of last year. The interview, CBS notes, is “the filmmaker’s first in-depth television interview in nearly three decades.”In her 2018 interview with Gayle King, Farrow reiterated her claim that Allen molested her in 1992 and denied being coached by mother Mia Farrow, Allen’s then-girlfriend. And how will CBS Sunday Morning tie these threads together? Apparently, Moriarty will take a deep dive into “the challenges the public faces when respected artists are alleged — or discovered — to have acted in a morally questionable manner.” Allen has repeatedly denied abusing Farrow, most recently calling HBO’s Allen v. Farrow a “shoddy hit piece” in a joint press release with his wife, Soon-Yi Previn.

$1M Worth of Beyoncé’s Property Stolen Out of Storage Units
       
Photo: Robert Gauthier/Los Angeles Times via Getty ImagesBefore you ask: yes, the gowns were affected. According to TMZ, storage units rented by Beyoncé’s production company Parkwood Entertainment were reportedly burglarized twice earlier in March, with the culprits making off with more than a million dollar’s worth of the singer’s belongings, including “expensive handbags and dresses.” Per TMZ, “the missing items from the first heist all belong to Queen Bey.”Following the initial theft, which reportedly targeted three storage units, three more units in the same storage facility were broken into less than a week later, allegedly by the same people. Among the second haul was “handbags, kids toys, and photos belonging to one of Beyoncé’s stylists.” According to TMZ, there have been no arrests in the crime, but if Beyoncé’s entire Black Is King wardrobe shows up on TheRealReal, that’s going to be a huge tip-off.
Maya Rudolph’s Beyoncé Fully Melts Down on YouTube Hot Ones
       
If your whole deal is being cool, calm, collected, and sexy, do not go on Hot Ones. Hosted by Sean Evans, it’s a YouTube interview show designed to break down celebrities’ barriers by feeding them extremely spicy chicken wings. Of course, while we would all love to see the actual Beyoncé sit down behind a giant glass of room temperature milk for a chat, she never will. Well, let Maya Rudolph’s Beyoncé demonstrate in Saturday Night Live’s version of Hot Ones, featuring Mikey Day as a surprising convincing Evans. “I know that now, you bald bitch,” Beyoncé shouts.
Maya Rudolph’s Monologue Remembers SNL as The Breakfast Club
       
While we were hoping for a musical monologue tonight, Maya Rudolph warmed our hearts instead, inviting this year’s freshman class of SNL performers Andrew Dismukes, Punkie Johnson, and Lauren Holt to the stage to teach them about her Saturday Night Live experience. Turns out, it was pretty much exactly like John Hughes’ 1985 high school dramedy The Breakfast Club. I was so nervous; I couldn’t look anyone in the eye,” Rudolph claims. So, good luck to you, Chirpy, Little Dee Dee, and Calista Vagina. Hopefully Lorne has taught you an important lesson about high school by assigning you a season of Saturday Night Live for your Saturday detention.
‘Saturday Night Live’s’ Bowen Yang Joins ‘Weekend Update’ to Say ‘Do More’ to Stop Anti-Asian Racism
       
Bowen Yang joined the March 27 “Saturday Night Live” “Weekend Update” segment to tell the audience to “do more” to stop anti-Asian racism. Yang did not address this, but he did say he has recently found posts with action items online and wanted to share some of those with the audience. I have an Asian grandma, you want to punch her, there ain’t no common ground, mama,” he said. “Let me know when you get on your knees and scrub her feet while she looks at your phone.

Rich Countries Can—And Should—Help the Rest of the World With Vaccines and Debt Relief
       
But for many developing countries and emerging markets, the end of the crisis is a long way off. Advanced economies, especially the U.S., have acted forcefully to reignite their economies and support vulnerable businesses and households. Lastly, developed countries could orchestrate a comprehensive response to the overwhelming debt problems many countries are facing. In the early stages of the pandemic, it was hoped that a suspension of debt servicing for developing countries and emerging markets would suffice. The policies described here would be of enormous benefit to the developing world and would come at little or no cost to developed countries.
'Way Past Time to Fire Mr. DeJoy' Says Sanders After House Dems Unveil Bill to Stop Assault on USPS

Duckworth continued: "The only question facing the USPS Board of Governors right now is whether PMG DeJoy is the best individual to lead the Postal Service moving forward. We will not allow Trump's handpicked Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to slow down mail delivery, cut hours at post offices, and sabotage the Postal Service. "It is time to remove all governors and start over with a board vested with the expertise and acumen this nation needs in its Postal Service leadership."
How Public Sector Workers Are Fighting to Prevent More Job Losses
       
After the pandemic sent state and local budgets into a tailspin, public sector workers across the country were suddenly faced with furloughs, layoffs, and potentially deep concessions. More than 1.3 million state and local government workers lost their jobs in 2020... Higher education workers and public school staff saw the largest immediate losses, but public workers everywhere felt the budget squeeze and spent months waiting for the other shoe to drop. It will also provide $123 billion for public schools and $29 billion for public colleges and universities. Shock and AweThe aggressive federal aid is certainly welcome news for public workers like bus operator JorDann Crawford, a member of Transit (ATU) Local 1575.

If Businesses Were Run Like the Republican Party
       
This is a public domain image obtained from Unsplash.com. I modified it by adding extra space at the top and bottom and adding text. If you’re the Republican party, what should you do when people are not voting for you? You could look into where you might have gone wrong and modify some of your policies to broaden your appeal to more voters. So, you might try looking into the people who tend to vote for the other party, and making it as hard as possible for them to vote at all.
No Need to File An Amended Return: $10.2k Deduction From Unemployment Will Come Automatically
       
I chose to not file my return until I saw that show up in the little box, but many Americans who received unemployment may not have even been aware that the deduction was coming, and filed the tax returns already. If you have already files without that deduction being applied, the IRS has a request: Do NOT re-file or file an amendment this year! If you have already filed your 2020 Form 1040 or 1040-SR, you should not file an amended return at this time. Instead, sit tight, and the IRS will check your return, and if you’re owed it, they will include it automatically. So I’m helping this particular benefit become one more reminder to everyone who received unemployment that Democratic governments are better for your bottom line by a wide margin.
Were the last 12 months a 'lost year' for you because of the pandemic?
       
), donating old books and clothes, completing long-dormant writing projects, luxuriating in books both on tape and on paper, and contacting old friends by phone and by actual snail mail letters (with stamps and everything)! For me, the last 12 months feel like a “lost year”: time that slipped through my fingers without clear memories or a sense of direction or concrete accomplishments of any kind. I did do one good thing, although I started it before the pandemic: I had a streak on a language app and managed to stay with it. Here is today’s question one more time:Were the last 12 months a “Lost Year” because of the pandemic? This is also a good place to ask general questions about politics, Democrats, Daily Kos, or anything else on your mind.
My personal Georgia boycott
       
I was reading another diary on the Georgia anti-democracy, anti-voting, pro-Jim-Crow bill, and one person mentioned they had contacted the state tourism department and told them they had canceled their planned business trip to Georgia, and wanted to let them know why. I thought, “Well, I can do that too.” We have relatives in Georgia, and were planning on going down to see them once Covid was not a threat. But, if Georgia is going to pass laws like this, they don’t need my business. Just wanted you to know that we have canceled our planned trip to Georgia to see relatives, due to the Jim Crow voting laws your state just passed and your governor just signed.

Dealing with the modern day plague
       
As the holiday of Passover is upon us we should reflect on how we celebrate plagues (ten specifically) while we as a society are still dealing with the modern day COVID-19 plague. Weather it is mental health issues, poverty, discrimination, voter intimidation or gun violence all can be considered a plague on our society. Gun violence and needless deaths occur yet can be prevented! In less than two weeks we have seen several cases including Atlanta (8 deaths), Boulder (10 deaths), Virginia Beach (2 deaths). Together we can end gun violence.
A short river
       
The D River in Lincoln City, Oregon, which flows from Devils Lake into the Pacific Ocean, claims to be the world’s shortest river. The River is 440 feet long and has been listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the world’s shortest river. However, in 1989, some Montana Boy Scouts convinced Guiness that Montana’s Roe River which flows into the Missouri River in Great Falls was actually shorter. The Guiness Book of World Records has dropped the world’s shortest river category from its listings. Shown below are some photographs of Lincoln City’s D River Open Space.
I Messed Up

Pesach (Passover) begins this evening. Passing thoughts on Liberation
       
Pesach is the annual commemoration of the Torah’s account of the Jews liberation from slavery. Freedom is, according to the American exceptionalist mythology, what the US has represented to the world since the 18th Century. [12] The survivor’s voice is conceived as the direct speech of the victim, but such a view is a form of slippage, the survivor’s survival a fetish representing its otherness. [15] The problem of voice, of the directness of the survivor’s speech, its standing in for others, is at the heart of testimony. The first thing Levi realizes is that survival is a language and that to survive, one must become fluent in this language.
WOW2: Late March's Trailblazing Women and Events in Our History
       
March 22, 1808 – Caroline Sheridan Norton born, English author and social reformer. The jury threw out the claim, but the scandal almost brought down the government, and Caroline was unable to get a divorce. She was passionately involved in the campaigns to pass the Custody of Infants Act 1839, and the Matrimonial Causes Act 1857. An English wife did not have the right to leave her husband. Caroline Norton was not in favor of women getting the vote, and never espoused women’s equality.
Airing my Briefs in Public
       
Thanking Trump for Operation Warp SpeedFox News has been ablaze with calls for President Biden to publicly thank Trump for Operation Warp Speed. Trump should be thanked… as many times and in the same manner as he thanked President Obama. For example, Trump thanked Obama for a smooth transition. Trump thanked Obama for leaving 142 judgeships unfilled. In return Biden could thank Trump for not overthrowing the government of the United States.

This Week in the War on Women, 3/21-27/2021: Toxic Elite White Male Culture and Hazing Edition

I asked Mom, she remembers fraternity hazing deaths in the news back when she was a child — she’s now almost 90. We see that repeatedly when young women are attacked by young men, don’t we?

It sucks being lonely and depressed during a major holiday celebration.
       
Sometimes I hate my life...being stuck alone in a nursing home with no hope of getting out anytime soon. This is my favorite Jewish holiday, a time to spend with friends and family, to celebrate and learn from our history, to enjoy a great meal, and to be in comfort. I managed to attend a Zoom Seder and for this I am blessed, but it is not the same. But being able to take part in the steps of the Seder was lost. No Hillel sandwich, no hard boiled eggs, I was not able to read from the Haggadah, etc.

Ghormeh Sabzi, essentially a beef or lamb stew cooked in sauteed herbs, has been described as the “Iranian national dish.” This Diary will tell you how to make it. You can fake the dried limes with aGhormeh Sabziquarter cup of lime juice, but it’s not the same. As far as the dried limes go, I was able to go to my local specialty spice shop and get them (just ask for “dried limes” If you ask for dried “Persian limes” the store owner won’t likely know what that is). Do you use kidney beans or black-eyed beans? And how much dried fenugreek leaf?” Recipes vary, but the one provided here seems to be recognized as a template.
Books So Bad They're Good: Postponement
       
Tonight was supposed to be the next installment in my ongoing series on Curtis D. MacDougall’s book Hoaxes. I’ve also been including modern books that either are hoaxes, debunk hoaxes, or discuss hoaxes in some way. Tonight was supposed to be Chapter III, “Suggestion,” and the case I was going to discuss was a beauty. Forgeries, a major religious institution, two dead people, a major governmental institution, even a library two towns away from me...this one truly had it all. One good thing this week: I was able to schedule my first Covid shot for next Wednesday.
Brazil may be experiencing the same COVID horror Italy experienced
       
As we all know, the first COVID horror story outside Asia played out in Italy. Well, an article in today’s New York Times suggests that Brazil is headed for that same horror. Take the situation in Porto Alegre, which anchors Brazil’s fifth-largest metropolitan area (after Sao Paulo, Rio, Belo Horizonte and Brasilia). The patients began arriving at hospitals in Porto Alegre far sicker and younger than before. In Rio Grande do Sul, home to Porto Alegre, there’s a 240-person waiting list for ICU beds.
Homelessness was rising before COVID-19. Can the pandemic teach us to do better?
       
Again and again we see how the rolling tragedy that hit the entire country hit the most vulnerable among us the hardest. “What the pandemic has showed us is that individual rooms are healthier and safer,” an attorney who has represented people living in encampments told the Orange County Register. A provider in Bethesda, Maryland, said some people who had been unwilling to accept assistance did so because of the pandemic, and got permanent housing. So with homelessness as with unemployment benefits and direct payments, the pandemic has highlighted the fact that building a safety net can work. And we know that some of these areas are not going to embrace state-level policies that help prevent homelessness and support people who are struggling.

'Echoed every conceivable GOP talking point': Critics slam Washington Post's immigration coverage
       
They have been doing so for several years, which The Post fails to note in its breathless coverage. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), historically a paper-pushing agency, was reportedly ordered by the previous administration to not communicate with then-President-elect Biden’s team. Both Cornyn and Cruz did nothing while the previous administration implemented humanitarian disasters like the anti-asylum Remain in Mexico policy, which the Biden administration has begun winding down. Where was the panic-stricken media coverage about the border ‘crisis’ then, and how the Republican administration had no policy answer? “Two years later, the press is once again playing along with Republicans, claiming a huge border surge is bad news for Democrats.”
Everything is Black and White...until it's not
       
I view the world through the eyes of a Black woman. My life began in black and white with only a hint of others in between. Moms of their friends, moms on the PTA board, Scout moms, and Sunday school moms. My children’s circle of friends is Black, White, and everyone in between. Still in broader discussions of diversity, equity, and inclusion, we mostly frame it around Black and White.

Blind spots on the Left: White privilege, White supremacy and the blood-stained fabric of America.
       
Whiteness and the normalization of white racial identity throughout America's history have created a culture where nonwhite persons are seen as inferior or abnormal. Whiteness, to those born with a fortuitous skin pigmentation, immediately confers White privilege. This defensiveness derails the conversation, which means, unfortunately, that defining white privilege must often begin with defining what it’s not. September 30, 2020 White supremacy is the belief in the superiority of the white race, and that it should therefore dominate other races—especially the Black race. And, due to American white supremacy and the resulting apartheid, discrimination has, so far, bled into and through my Black American life.
Biden Day Sixty-Seven: The First 100 Days
       
Border heating up as Repubs have sent several senators down with press to make Biden and Harris look bad. This situation has existed prior to Biden’s election and is made more complex in warmer weather. We all must be patient and trust in Joe and Kamala. The stimulus has been passed out for the most part and the economy should begin to roar back. Pray Biden gets rid of the filibuster as Georgia and many other states are passing bills to suppress the vote by not offering water to voters in line and changing hours making it hard for the working class to vote.
Ode to Autoreload, or Why I Canceled The Hill
       
One of those for the past several years has been The Hill. Something changed in their site software, though, which has caused me to delete their bookmark and stop using them as a source. They have every story page set up to autoreload on about a ten minute cycle. Apparently they use the same tech as Firefox as their software is ineffective in stopping The Hill pages from reloading. I have to presume that the reason they do this is to artificially inflate their page load counts.

Seditionist Mo Brooks Says That Jan 6th Insurrectionists Were
       
But you see there was going to be a DEBATE on the floor of the U.S. House and Senate about this very same non-issue on Jan 6th. Even though Jan 6th was scheduled to be the routine process of counting the electoral votes that had already been certified by all the states. But Mo Brooks does not see it that way. Oh, and Mo Brooks really didn’t appreciate how the interview went either. And Republican voters really don’t think the Jan 6th was that big a deal.
Devin Nunes' mom does his FEC reports, and she appears to be really bad at it
       
Nunes has two fundraising committees—the Nunes Victory Fund and NEW PAC—and his mother, Diane, has served as treasurer for both of them. And while Nunes is also suing Devin Nunes’ Cow, his actual cow presumably has nothing to do with his FEC filings. The Daily Beast:All but one of the campaign’s 2020 FEC reports filed by Nunes’ mom contain material errors, according to the [FEC’s Requests for Additional Information]. In total, the FEC sent the Nunes Victory Fund and his campaign six RFAIs each for the 2020 election cycle. In the 2018 cycle, the FEC sent the campaign eight RFAIs.

Top Comments: You're Vaccinated for Covid. Now What? What You Can and Can't Do Now.
       
Now that people are getting vaccinated, there’s a lot of misinformation that’s circling around and I’d like to set the record straight. The vaccines prevent us from getting severe disease requiring hospitalization. You can visit friends and family that have been fully vaccinated. Yes, you can visit fully vaccinated people inside without masks or social distancing as long as everyone is fully vaccinated. It’s best to stay home — after all, we don’t have “fully vaccinated” tattooed on our foreheads so it would look like we’re flouting the rules.
DUH! GOP Tweet Admits that 'The Republican Party Isn’t Going Anywhere' ?
       
The Republican Party is unarguably mired in a historically deep trench of disinformation, division, and cultist devotion to a deranged former reality TV game show host. The Republican Party isn’t going anywhere, and we are going to win in 2022 and 2024! pic.twitter.com/sqPUQMqipT — GOP (@GOP) March 27, 2021The video in that tweet features a brief exchange from President Biden's press conference that Fox news found so appalling and boring. The GOP's official response to that was the inadvertently honest observation that "The Republican Party isn’t going anywhere." And that's the part that truly devastates the core raison d'etre of the Republican Party.

Baltimore Stops Arresting People for Petty Crimes & All Crime Rates Go Down.
       
Violent crime dropped 20% from March 2020 to March 2021, property crime decreased 36%, and there were 13 fewer homicides. It wasn’t due to COVID lockdowns — other big cities saw crime increases in the time of pandemic. The US leads the world in incarcerating its citizens — without any concomitant success in producing low crime rates. And two, it allows the criminal justice system to focus on violent crimes — the crimes that actually hurt people. Criminal justice in the US is often grounded in hostility, racism, and a belief that poverty is a moral failure — if not an outright crime in its own right.

The COVID-19 'It wasn't my fault' tour begins in earnest
       
In “her mind” the number of deaths could have been “mitigated or decreased substantially.”Well, what exactly was in her “mind,” last spring? “We’ve hit our peak,” she would say, and that message would find its way back to Mr. Trump. Dr. Birx began using versions of the phrase “putting out the embers,” wording that was later picked up by the press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, and by Mr. Trump himself. So during the time that she now says deaths from COVID-19 “could have been mitigated or reduced substantially,” Birx was doing essentially nothing to achieve that end. Dr. Birx, who was afraid to challenge his unscientific rhetoric and wrongfully praised him."

Insurrectionist insists that she won't go to jail because she has 'blonde hair, white skin'
       
Insurrection Karen, aka Jenna RyanSadly, she might have been right. But the cardinal sin in our justice system that she broke is that you don’t say the quiet part out loud. Realtor and part-time insurrectionist Jenna Ryan stormed the Capitol building on Jan. 6, took a selfie by the smashed window where the insurrectionists entered, and for some reason thinks its a good idea to keep the incendiary rhetoric going on her social media. Most people aren’t very supportive of her on Twitter. One guy told her she was going to jail.

One the United States occupied the islands a couple of decades later and enforced the use of English, native language newspapers began to fold. Though there are many ways the physical world records climate change, from the width of tree rings to the type of oxygen trapped in ice cores, these records are often on a large scale level. But there are other sources besides Hawaiian newspapers. For example, there are U.S. Navy records collected during World War II. And data on UK sea levels that also extends into the 19th century.

Walsh was the head of the Boston Building Trades Council before being elected mayor. But Harold Meyerson has argued that Walsh has been an effective bridge, working “to push the trades into the 21st century. There’s no question” that Walsh himself has benefited from white privilege, he said, and, “White people shouldn’t be afraid of the word white privilege.

Article: Book Review: Memoirs of a Russianist, Volumes I & II, by Gilbert Doctorow
       
Russia analyst and author Gilbert Doctorow has written a 2-volume memoir that takes the reader on a journey through his years as a Russia specialist. It was during this time that he met Larisa, a young Russian writer who would become his wife. This type of problem was a recurring theme during Doctorow's business life in 1990s Russia:"One hears of the mafia and extortion, the racket. These are indeed frightening aspects of the Russian business predicament. This young man told Doctorow and the other guests that the war seemed to have been needlessly prolonged for political reasons.
NATO troops in Lithuania neglect Covid-19 quarantine rules
       
Covid-19 cases have been confirmed in the NATO Enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroup in Lithuania. It should be noted that last year cases of infection in the NATO Battlegroup, as well as now, were confirmed precisely after the weekend. This may indicate that the Norwegian servicemen of the Battlegroup on weekends neglected Covid-19 quarantine rules in Lithuania. It is understood that many (not only Norwegian) NATO troops experienced psychological discomfort during the Covid-19 lockdown. Unfortunately, the Lithuanian government will not pay attention to infection cases among NATO troops because it wants them to remain their "defenders".

Latvian government turned population into prisoners
       
Baltic States' authorities decided not to "reinvent the wheel" and just found "hot" topics to divert attention from situation at home. Distrustful Baltic leaders typically favor political pressure and are confident in their ability to wield it effectively. It would be more logical to stop and think - maybe we're doing something wrong, maybe there is some other solution and maybe we can learn something from other countries' experience? It could be concluded that Latvian government, which does not seem too interested in taking care of residents' health. Why does it take care of prisoners in Russia and Belarus but really does not think about its own population turned into prisoners in their own homes by silly government decisions.
Wake up, Greta - the Baltic Sea is under attack!
       
Immediately after World War II, Soviet Navy ships disposed of thousands of tons of Nazi Germany chemical weapons in the Baltic Sea. Metal is very prone to corrosion in seawater, and it is also believed that the chemical aerial bombs in the Baltic Sea are decayed. There is a reason doctors don't suggest eating fish caught in the Baltic Sea more than once a week. Those familiar with genetics won't need any convincing that the chemicals left in the Baltic Sea by the communist regime are more dangerous to the health of humans than radiation. I hope Russia, being the heir of the USSR, will be made to clean up the Baltic Sea from the chemical weapons.
At least 5 killed in anti-Modi protests in Bangladesh
       
At least five people were killed and dozens more injured when police attempted to disperse protests in various cities against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Bangladesh. Four protesters were killed in the country's largest port city Chittagong and another was killed in the eastern district of Brahmanbaria, Islamabadi added. Hefazat spokesman Jakaria Noman Foyezi told AFP some 100,000 supporters of the group staged protests in at least 22 cities and towns across the country. Hefazat is known for its nationwide network and large-scale protests demanding blasphemy laws in Bangladesh, according to Deccan Herald. Ruhul Amin, the government administrator of Hathazari town, said up to 1,500 supporters of Hefazat attacked a police station chanting anti-Modi slogans.
Signs of Collapse Across Brazil as Covid Spirals Out of Control
       
Of Brazil's 26 states plus its federal district, only one or two on any given day have ICU occupancy rates below 80%. More than half are above 90%, which means if the healthcare systems haven't yet collapsed already in those states, they are at imminent risk of doing so. Health systems have been inundated with patients they can no longer adequately take care of due to a critical lack of space and supplies. As Brazil suffers through its worst days of this pandemic so far, there are signs of collapse at every level of the healthcare system in nearly every state across the country.
Georgians Are Waking Up To Governor Kemp's Authoritarian Takeover
       
And then, in a relative instant, they changed the laws so it was all irreversible. You can draw a straight line from Reagan through Bush to Trump, and then to Georgia and Iowa outlawing democracy in their states this past week. We're watching democracy ripped right out from under us. This was Chicago reporter Milton Mayer's great fear and great fascination, after he got to know real Germans who'd lived through the years of the Nazis. It was introduced into the House, passed the House; introduced into the Senate, passed the Senate; sent to the Governor and signed by Governor Brian Kemp...all in less than one day.

The Hawaii-based Reapers, which will be operated by hundreds of Marine Corps personnel with new job specialty designations, could be armed with AGM-114 Hellfire missiles, officials said. In another aspect of the new Marine stategy, on March 15, the entire Marine Corps fleet of CH-53E Sea Stallion helicopters in Hawaii began leaving the islands to be replaced by a squadron of KC-130 cargo and refueling aircraft. Eliminating from the Marine Corps inventory of all tanks is another move to use of longer-range missiles over conventional, tubed artillery shelling.

China and Iran sign 25-year strategic cooperation agreement
       
China and Iran Saturday signed a 25-year long cooperation agreement. The president also said Iran and China can work together to fight "terrorism and extremism in the region" in addition to economic and trade cooperation. Wang was quoted by the president's website as saying that maintaining the nuclear deal would mean preserving multilateralism. The deal with China marked the first time Iran has signed such a lengthy agreement with a major world power. In 2001, Iran and Russia signed a 10-year cooperation agreement, mainly in the nuclear field, that was lengthened to 20 years through two five-year extensions.

Fear Over The Climate Crisis Has Made Me Reconsider Having Children
       
The daughter of a midwife, I’d always imagined that having children was unquestionably part of my future. I say this because I’m not a gen Z-er born with a seemingly innate purpose to combat climate change. But, in just three decades of my lifetime on this land, the evidence of environmental change is all too alarming. My fears about the climate crisis were further cemented when I read The Future We Choose (Random House, 2020), co-authored by former UN climate chief Christiana Figueres. Our own prevailing rationale for not having children stems from the crisis and the limited time we now have to address the climate emergency.

Yomi Adegoke: Has The Internet Killed Subcultures?
       
If video killed the radio star, then it was the internet that killed subcultures. Combined with the rise of sample culture, different cultural touchstones are now a dress-up box for Gen Z. There is evidence that subcultures of a sort are alive and kicking, however – just not as we know it. At one time, young people used make-up as a visual code to gain admittance into different subcultures: black lipstick for goths, winged eyeliner for punks. Subcultures were the safe spaces of yesteryear, but in many ways, identity in terms of gender, race, class, and sexuality has taken its place.
The 9 Most Compelling Sustainable Looks From The AW21 Catwalks
       
In some ways, this fashion month was arguably more eco-friendly than those pre-pandemic.

In a double-breasted tux, she paid homage to Frank Sinatra and played ““All or Nothing at All.”In more serious news, Gunne Sax founder and pioneer of prairie girl style Jessica McClintock died this past week at the age of 90. And this past weekend, over a thousand people walked from Union Square to Chinatown as part of the Black and Asian solidarity march.

On the Street at Taipei Fashion Week, ’90s-Style Deconstruction Is Back
       
In Taipei, total looks are out and looking polished is optional. Adding an exciting twist to street style is the “undone” vibe of deconstructed garments. Their inside-out, artfully tattered, or otherwise altered state mirrors that of the current climate, and brings the focus back on construction and material, providing real double-take moments after a year of dressing for our screens.

Sharon Osbourne: BOOM! Leaving The Talk for Being Way Too Racist
       
After nearly 11 years a co-host, Sharon Osbourne is leaving The Talk. Or, to be far more accurate, it's all because of the inappropriate way in which Sharon Osbourne reacted to the reaction to the Meghan Markle-Oprah Winfrey interview. But Underwood followed up by telling Osbourne that she was downplaying the racial undertones of Morgan's remarks. After this heated exchange aired, an investigation alleged that Osbourne had often used racist and homophobic slurs against her co-panelists. Following her controversial comments a few weeks ago, Osbourne thanked her supporters for their "prayers" and issued an apology.

Fans are convinced Kourtney Kardashian‘s boyfriend, Travis Barker, got his latest tattoo in honor of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. Here’s what we know about the True Romance piece and its meaning. Fans immediately flocked to the comments section, assuming the 41-year-old had written out the tattoo for him. “You definitely have to marry her now after 2 tattoos,” one fan gushed — referencing an Audrey Hepburn tattoo Travis got in December 2020, which is the same image of the legendary actress that Kourtney has hanging in her home — while another added, “Next to the Audrey! He also included two screenshots from the Quentin Tarantino film True Romance, which follows the story of the aforementioned Clarence and his girlfriend, Alabama, for whom Travis’ 15-year-old daughter is named.

The reality star, 41, opened up about her condition during a scene with her sister, Jo “Doe Doe” Shannon, on the Friday, March 26 episode of WeTV’s Mama June: From Not to Hot. “I’ve seen the walker thing in some of your video thingies,” Doe Doe, 56, told Mama June. “A month ago, when I went to get my chin done, he said, ‘It looks like you got [lymphedema],’” she told her sister. “I am to a point that I’m a stage 3,” June told Doe Doe.

'Tiger King': Are Joe Exotic, Dillon Passage Still Married?
       
Tiger King star Joe Exotic and husband Dillon Passage will “stay married right now so things don’t get complicated,” the reality star’s lawyer Francisco Hernandez confirmed to Us Weekly. “I am so glad that they are working things through,” the attorney told the outlet on Saturday, March 27. “In November of 2017 I met Joe who was there for me during a difficult time in my life. “This wasn’t an easy decision to make but Joe and I both understand that this situation isn’t fair to either of us.”Before his marriage to Passage, Exotic was in a three-way marriage with John Finlay and Travis Maldonado. He and Finlay broke up in 2014, but Exotic was still married to Maldonado at the time of his death in 2017.
After Years of Abusive E-mails, the Creator of Linux Steps Aside
       
Today, the Linux kernel is famous, running the enormous computers of Google, PayPal, Amazon, and eBay, and the two billion mobile phones using the Android operating system. In a response to The New Yorker, Torvalds said, “I am very proud of the Linux code that I invented and the impact it has had on the world. “People assumed I was a cis woman in tech, and I received a lot of harassment because of it,” Sharp told me. Many women who contribute to Linux point to another open-source project, Python, as a guide for Linux as its faces its #MeToo moment. Sharp, who was employed by Intel at the time, said they carefully avoided Linux kernel work thereafter.
Richard Stallman resigns from MIT over Epstein comments
       
Famed computer scientist Richard Stallman has resigned from his position at MIT over recent comments he made concerning Jeffrey Epstein’s victims. He has also resigned as president of the Free Software Foundation, an organization Stallman founded in 1985, as well as from its board of directors. Last week it emerged that Stallman had cast doubt upon the reports that AI pioneer Marvin Minsky had sexually assaulted one of Epstein’s victims. “I am resigning effective immediately from my position in CSAIL at MIT,” Stallman wrote in a blog post, “I am doing this due to pressure on MIT and me over a series of misunderstandings and mischaracterizations.” Stallman has been affiliated with MIT since 1971, when he first became a programmer at the university’s Artificial Intelligence Lab. “On September 16, 2019, Richard M. Stallman, founder and president of the Free Software Foundation, resigned as president and from its board of directors,” the Free Software Foundation wrote in a separate statement on its website.
Remove Richard Stallman: Appendix A
       
Richard Stallman has problematic opinions. Richard Stallman has been contributing to a negative environment for women at MIT for over thirty years. I don’t know if he and I were the last two left, but at a table with only the two of us, Richard Stallman told me of his misery and that he’d kill himself if I didn’t go out with him. Richard Stallman is free to campaign for his beliefs in this country, even if many disagree with them, so long as he does not violate the law. I do not think Richard Stallman ever met even a low ethical standard for being at any university, and I am questioning mostly why this was allowed to continue for so, so long.
Poshmark sales top estimates in its first quarterly report as a public company, but outlook disappoints; shares fall
       
Poshmark Inc. signage outside the Nasdaq MarketSite during the company's initial public offering (IPO) in New York, U.S., on Thursday, Jan. 14, 2021. Poshmark's revenue topped analysts' estimates, in its first financial report since going public in January. But the online seller of secondhand clothing issued a weaker-than-expected sales outlook for the current quarter. For the first quarter, Poshmark is calling for revenue to fall within a range of $75.5 million to $77.5 million. A number of players are looking to gain market share, including luxury consignment site TheRealReal, sneaker reseller StockX and virtual thrift store ThredUp.

Richard Stallman returns to the Free Software Foundation after resigning in 2019
       
Free software advocate Richard Stallman is rejoining the board of the Free Software Foundation. Stallman founded the FSF in 1985 and acted as its president until 2019, when he resigned after making widely criticized statements about convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. MIT graduate Selam Jie Gano, who posted the original emails on Medium, called the Epstein statements “almost irrelevant” to the larger issue. Even after his resignations, Stallman remained in charge of the GNU Project, which develops and advocates for free and open-source software and operating systems. Correction: The original version of this article referred to Richard Stallman as an open-source software advocate, when he is actually a free software advocate.
The future of clothes: These 3 startups help you rent or resell everyday items
       
Some of these companies, such as CaaStle, are creating clothing rental services that satisfy people’s desire to be in style without having to shop. All of them are challenging the preconception—among shoppers and clothing brands alike—that newer is better. But Hunsicker saw even more opportunity in helping retailers and clothing brands create their own rental services. In the past year, it partnered with American Eagle to power the first rental service aimed at Gen Z, Scotch & Soda to launch the first men’s rental service, Bloomingdale’s for the first rental service from a department store, and Banana Republic. (CaaStle also launched Haverdash, its own multibrand rental service for women and the most affordable one on the market, at $59 a month.)
Flush with $175M in new funding, ThredUP is launching a platform for other resale brands
       
ThredUP, the online marketplace for secondhand fashion items, is betting that the resale industry is going to keep growing. The company announced it just snagged $175 million in funding, bringing its total capital raised to more than $300 million. It is growing 21 times faster than retail, and it is on track to surpass fast fashion in the next 10 years. As I’ve written before, fast fashion has created a massive amount of pollution on the planet. If consumers were able to buy secondhand products at a fast fashion price point, it would be a much more sustainable alternative to the status quo.
Janet Yellen: Biden's COVID-19 relief plan could restore full employment by next year
       
Summers also contended that Biden's plan would make less money available for other initiatives such as improving the nation's infrastructure. The proposal will be part of the COVID-19 relief bill they are writing that is expected to largely follow Biden’s plan. The child tax credit increase is expected to help about 20 million lower-earning people. The child tax credit details were first reported by The Washington Post. She said if Biden's relief package is approved, the country could get back to full employment by next year.
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s life was a study in destructive alcoholism
       
A badly recovering alcoholic, Fitzgerald drank and smoked himself into a terminal spiral of cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease, angina, dyspnea, and syncopal spells. On December 21, 1940, Scott Fitzgerald dropped dead after eating a chocolate bar and reading the Princeton Alumni Weekly magazine. A badly recovering alcoholic, Fitzgerald drank and smoked himself into a terminal spiral of cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease, angina, dyspnea, and syncopal spells. Throughout his life, Scott made a drunken fool out of himself at parties and public venues, spewing insults, throwing punches, and hurling ashtrays—behaviors followed by blackouts and memory loss. Every morning during those sad, last years of his life, Scott awoke with the hope that he could tell his alcoholic demons to scram.
Biden stimulus showers money on Americans, sharply cutting poverty and favoring individuals over businesses
       
That’s in addition to the unemployment assistance and child tax credit the family would be eligible for without the pandemic. Child poverty would be reduced by more than half, the researchers predict. It also expands three key tax credits — the child tax credit, the earned income tax credit, and the child and dependent care tax credit — that advocates for the poor have long urged the government to do to help reduce poverty. Under this more generous child tax credit plan, parents would receive $3,000 a year for every child ages 6 to 17 and $3,600 a year for every child under 6. For people without children, the legislation expands the earned income tax credit, which helps supplement wages for the working poor.
Why the COVID-19 pandemic left long-term scars on the global job market
       
Getting a lost job back could be a struggle for her and millions of other unemployed people around the world. Even as vaccines increasingly promise a return to something close to normal life, the coronavirus seems sure to leave permanent scars on the job market. No one knows exactly what the job market will look like when the virus finally ends its rampage. “At this point,” she said, “they have to move on with their lives.”Jamison wonders whether the front-desk operation eventually will be eliminated altogether, the jobs lost to automation. In Europe, government jobs programs have prevented a devastating rise in unemployment.
Lost jobs, less pay, no childcare: A year into the pandemic, women are not OK
       
Brothers91 | E+ | Getty ImagesOne year into the coronavirus pandemic, women are not OK. More than 2.3 million have left the workforce since February 2020, bringing their labor participation rate to levels not seen since 1988, according to the National Women's Law Center. The headwinds against women are just increasing in strength, and women are just continuing to fall behind. That translates into $10,157 less per year in median earnings for full-time working women. Nearly 1 in 5 women have nothing saved for their golden years, a 2020 CNBC/SurveyMonkey Women at Work survey found. Source: Martha Wade ChairesFor 39-year-old Martha Wade Chaires, there was really no other choice but to step away from work when the pandemic hit.
Opinion | The rise of the upper middle class
       
The share of Black families that are upper middle class has increased from 1 percent in 1967 to 14 percent in 2016. The biggest change has been the rise of the upper middle class. The shrinkage of the traditional middle class will be mourned by some, but the reality is that most of those who have left the middle class have moved up, not down. The upper middle class wants its entitlements. Falling behind is the lower middle class, once called the working class.
Opinion | Things Will Get Better. Seriously.
       
But at some point in 2021 things will start getting better. And there’s good reason to believe that once the good news starts, the improvement in our condition will be much faster and continue much longer than many people expect. OK, one thing that probably won’t get better is the political scene. Day after day, Republicans — it’s not just Donald Trump — keep demonstrating that they’re worse than you could possibly have imagined, even when you tried to take into account the fact that they’re worse than you could possibly have imagined. One of our two major political parties no longer accepts the legitimacy of elections it loses, which bodes ill for the fate of the Republic.
Post-Covid America Isn’t Going to Be Anything Like the Roaring ’20s
       
One study by Metropolitan Life found that during the 1918 pandemic, 3.6 percent of all industrial workers ages 25–45 died within the period of a few weeks. “That’s not case mortality; that’s mortality,” Barry says, adding, “In 1918, the deaths among young children were astronomical.”One similarity between then and now: Like the influenza virus, the novel coronavirus isn’t going to simply disappear. In that sense, coronavirus is not unlike the 1918 flu virus, parts of which live on in the seasonal flus we experience every year. There’s been speculation about a “roaring 2020s” 100 years after the actual Roaring ’20s. That’s not case mortality; that’s mortality.
Home Buyers Loving the Suburbs Again
       
Mortgage rates dropped to all-time lows, with the average 30-year rate sinking to 2.65% in early January, Freddie Mac reports. “A sub-3% mortgage rate is phenomenal and unprecedented,” says Guy Cecala, chief executive and publisher of Inside Mortgage Finance. Tips for buyers Buyers who want to lock in the lowest mortgage rates should purchase a home earlier in the year, before rates tick up, Hale says. Qualify for the best mortgage rate Nabbing a lower mortgage rate means lower monthly loan payments and paying less in interest over time. You can use a mortgage rate comparison tool at LendingTree, NerdWallet or Bankrate to get offers from multiple lenders.
Robinhood makes Wall Street feel like a game to win—not a place where you can lose your savings
       
Extrinsic motivation lasts only as long as the player feels appropriately challenged and rewarded. Robinhood built its app to delight people who are new to active investing, taking advantage of the same psychological motivators that drive game behavior. The gamelike thrills start at sign-up when Robinhood offers new users a free stock, which they select from three face-down golden cards. By delighting users, Robinhood creates players rather than investors. But unlike Robinhood, apps like Acorns and the Long Game encourage users to save money rather than spend it.

The Roaring ’20s sounds nice, but a Snoring ’20s would be nicer
       
Here comes the heavy wave of ecstatic hedonism, as economists and tarot-reading Twitterers predict a second coming of the Roaring ’20s. More power to the (vaccinated) partyers, but personally I’m over the idea of an entire new Roaring ’20s. The pandemic should have made us all at least a little more germaphobic, and that’s a good thing. As Barry further points out in his Politico interview, even after the 1918 pandemic ended, scientists had no idea yet how viruses worked. That knowledge gap is part of the reason people in the Roaring ’20s seemed to party without fear of viral reprisal.

The Case for and Against Love Potions
       
Love potions. Then, on a full-moon night, pour a few drops into the food of the one whose love you are seeking and poof! Well, the thing is, love potions usually work. Let me present my friend Wonja as Exhibit W of what can happen when a love potion goes wrong. But for certain people, like my friend Wonja, love is more like a rainbow.
Puzzling Through Our Eternal Quest for Wellness
       
Novak and Berlant are brilliant comics, denizens of the alternative-standup scene that bridges the gap between punch lines and performance art. One report estimated that the entire wellness industry is worth $4.5 trillion, with a growth rate of 6.4 per cent year over year. It makes sense, then, that the wellness industry has stretched into podcasting. This quest-like quality lies at the center of the modern wellness apparatus, and it’s precisely what “POOG” both enshrines and interrogates. Which is what “POOG” is: a laugh from inside the house that the wellness industry built.
The Shape of a Teardrop
       
They can come in with police dogs and fire hoses and I’ll cling to the woodwork till I’m stripped to the bone. Nobody would even consider stopping to offer me a ride, and, no, I didn’t have the money to waste on an Uber, if that’s what you’re thinking. “You want me to die?” he shouts, loud enough for Jocelyn Hammersmith to hear through her storm windows. I should remember the way he once was, the way life was before whatever happened to him—to us, him, Doug, and me—wiped it all away. “If you’re going to die, go ahead and do it—but do it someplace else, will you?
The Timeless Fantasy of Stanley Tucci Eating Italian Food
       
“Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy,” which concluded its first season this past Sunday, is ostensibly educational. Cracking eggs, setting the pan over the flame, laying hunks of bread on plates, Tucci makes cooking a physical language. But the Stanley Tucci of our hearts is a man who cooks and eats and enchants while doing so. “Enjoy This Powerfully Erotic Video of Stanley Tucci,” the Cut recommended, and by god we did. “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy” is a good show, but not quite a great one.

The classic Iranian omelette kuku sabzi, made with more herbs than egg and topped with barberries. Her new company, Nasrin’s Kitchen, was offering a Nowruz feast for delivery, too.
The Movement to Exclude Trans Girls from Sports
       
A federal complaint filed in Connecticut alleges that trans girls’ participation in high-school sports constitutes discrimination under Title IX. Many trans girls are taking testosterone blockers and estrogen. Trans girls were not a part of this imaginary equation, and this was perhaps the most telling part of the hearing. The goal of this campaign is not to protect cis-girl athletes as much as it is to make trans athletes disappear. This is a movement to exclude trans girls from community and opportunity.

“I decorated this whole apartment around this very statement-making, coral-colored, massive couch.” This time, she was unfazed.

Now I don’t have to go to Zoe’s wedding solo.” Lee ordered a new couch after his ex got their Muuto sofa when they split.

Oregon State Gets Past Loyola, Extending a Surprise March Run
       
And Oregon State, which arrived in Indiana as a No. Oregon State’s bench added 15 to help secure a win, 65-58. It came after a first half that offered one of the least dazzling offensive displays in the history of the tournament: a combined 40 points between Loyola and Oregon State. Struggling with Oregon State’s defense, Loyola had more turnovers than field goals and missed its last seven shots before the intermission to finish the half with a miserly 17.4 percent shooting. Oregon State, with its 33.3 percent showing, seemed kingly, but only because it managed an 11-0 run before halftime.
UConn Routs Iowa in Round of 16, Will Meet Baylor
       
5 seed Iowa, 92-72, to earn a trip to the round of 8. It was two juniors, Christyn Williams and the redshirt Evina Westbrook, who carried the show for UConn.

Hinkle Fieldhouse Is Still Ready for Its Closeup
       
Ballock and his team beat Ohio on Monday night, and they will return to Hinkle to play top-ranked Gonzaga this Sunday. Twenty-four teams played there through the first two rounds, some bathed in the sepia tones of late-afternoon light that streams through the windows. The last time national tournament games were played at Hinkle was in 1940, when the entire event had just eight teams. Making an entrance at Hinkle can be a transportive experience for a player, calling to mind the final scenes of the movie and thoughts of giants who crossed the same threshold. Or Oscar Robertson, whose Crispus Attucks Tigers became the first all-Black team to win an integrated state tournament.
‘A Very Big Problem.’ Giant Ship in the Suez Remains Stuck.
       
Mr. Mosselhy said teams of divers were already inspecting the hull and had not yet found damage. But in most other respects, the Ever Given had succumbed to Murphy’s Law: Everything that could go wrong did, starting with the ship’s size, among the world’s largest. “It was the biggest ship in the convoy, and she ended up in the worst part of the canal” — a narrow section with only one lane, Captain Sloane said. When a similarly sized ship, the CSCL Indian Ocean, ran aground near the port of Hamburg in 2016, it took nearly six days to clear the Elbe River. All this because, to put it simply: “This is a very big ship; this is a very big problem,” said Richard Meade, the editor in chief of Lloyd’s List, a London-based maritime intelligence publication.
Dozens Gunned Down in ‘Day of Shame’ for Myanmar
       
Ahead of an important holiday, Myanmar’s military warned people not to come out to protest on Saturday or they would be shot “in the back” or in the head. Many of Saturday’s victims were bystanders not taking part in the demonstrations. Among those shot and killed were a 5-year-old boy, two 13-year-old boys and a 14-year-old girl. A baby girl in Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city, was struck in the eye with a rubber bullet, although her parents said she was expected to live. Since the nationwide street demonstrations against the coup began, the military has killed more than 300 of its citizens and imprisoned thousands more.

Can New Gun Violence Research Find a Path Around the Political Stalemate?
       
The studies by Dr. Naik-Mathuria and the others are being paid for by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is once again funding research into gun violence after a nearly 25-year hiatus imposed by Congress. And while they might not reduce the number of massacres, mass shootings account for an extremely small percentage of the roughly 40,000 Americans who die each year from gun violence. “There’s at least five different gun violence problems in the country and mass shooting is one of them,” said Mr. Morral, who has a Ph.D. in psychology. “There’s also suicide, there’s urban gun violence which mostly affects minority young men, there’s family shootings and there’s police shootings. “There’s a strategy that science can help us define where you can do both — you can protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners and at the very same time reduce the toll of gun violence.”

Farm Sign Says Sex, Noises And Odors Inevitable To New City Slicker Neighbors [Viral Photo]Added: 30.09.2020 6:06 | 8 views | 0 commentsSource: www.emirates247.comA viral farm sign says sex, noises and odors are inevitable when you live next to one, and if you don't like it, you ought to move away. We're guessing that the owner of said farm regularly gets complaints about his/her animals making noises, smelling bad and having sex outdoors for everyone to see. It inspired the farmer to make this unique farm sign, warning of sex, noises and odors, and advising anyone who has a problem with it to move away. The tell-it-like-it-is sign warns of the uniquer conditions when living next to a farm and says that unless you can "tolerate noise, odors and outdoor sex, DON'T BUY PROPERTY NEXT TO A FARM." What do you think of the farm sign warning of sex, noises and odors?

What Makes Owen Power a Top NHL Draft Prospect
       
The fight for top prospect status for the 2021 NHL draft is still ongoing, but Owen Power has made a strong case for that honor. University of MichiganIf you've followed The Hockey News Prospect Podcast for any length of time – and I fully recommend you do – you know that we, and many NHL scouts, consider Owen Power to be one of the best prospects in the 2021 NHL draft. 1 favorite, but the one that many NHL scouts point to is Power, the hulking 6-foot-5 defenseman out of the University of Michigan. To get a further look as to what makes Power such a dominant prospect, I chatted with Dan Ninkovich, the program coordinator at Beyond The Next Level in Oakville, Ont. Ninkovich said it only took just one scrimmage against older competition for him to notice just how special Power was a prospect.

But that doesn't make the loss of his final junior hockey season sting any less. After losing the end of the 2019-20 season and nearly the entire 2020-21 season, could it impact player signings in the future?

These aren't just useful for developers and hackers—even if you've never delved into the Terminal before, there are a few tweaks that'll make your Mac better and boost your command line confidence. The Terminal app is stored under Applications > Utilities, but you can launch it quickly at any time by pressing Command+Space to open Spotlight, searching for "Terminal," and pressing Enter. To set a timer for shutdown, open a Terminal window and run:sudo shutdown -h \+60To break down that command, here's what it does:sudo tells the Terminal to run the following command as a super user, or administrator. The above command tells the system to shut down after 60 minutes, or one hour—but you can replace this number with any amount of time you want.

The Feds Want You to Destroy This Sneaky Mussel’s Hiding Spot
       
There are several ways to wreck a moss ball. In lakes and rivers, zebra mussels filter vast quantities of water and siphon the nutrients for themselves. Zebra mussels are “pretty much bad news all around,” says Ceci Weibert, an aquatic invasive species senior program specialist with the Great Lakes Commission. Around 30 years ago, to keep track of sightings of zebra mussels and other introduced species, the USGS set up the Nonindigenous Aquatic Species Database. At the first pet store he surveyed, Daniel found an adult zebra mussel clinging to a moss ball.

Should I be making summer plans? Have other people already made summer plans? Do my plans need to be twice as fun as ordinary summer plans?

Unreleased Woody Allen interview to stream on Paramount+ alongside 2018 Dylan Farrow interview
       
CBS Sunday Morning type TV ShowA previously unreleased CBS Sunday Morning interview with Woody Allen will be available to stream on Paramount+ starting on Sunday, in the wake of HBO's docuseries Allen v. Farrow examining the longstanding sexual abuse allegation against the filmmaker. The interview was filmed in July 2020, with Allen, who rarely speaks with the press, discussing his memoir Apropos of Nothing with CBS correspondent Lee Cowan. It will now stream as part of a special alongside CBS's 2018 interview with Dylan Farrow, Allen's daughter who accused him of molesting her when she was seven years old. The HBO docuseries brought renewed attention to Allen's case, which has been extensively discussed since the allegation first broke in 1992. In a statement, CBS News said it had elected to release the new interview now "given the renewed interest in the controversy surrounding the filmmaker."

Prince William named 'world’s sexiest bald man,' internet demands justice for Stanley Tucci
       
Gird your loins, everyone: A very informal study has named Prince William as the "world's sexiest bald man," and the internet begs to differ. Social media users were soon up in arms over the results, demanding justice for the various sexy bald men of Hollywood. One name, however, quickly rose above the rest: The Devil Wears Prada star and master of quarantine cocktails himself, Stanley Tucci. The actor was trending on Twitter Saturday morning as the Tucci hive arose to defend his honor. Not insignificantly, Stanley Tucci is beautiful, too.
Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin signs deal with HBO to develop more shows
       
Martin has decided to stay in business with HBO. The famously not-at-all-busy Game of Thrones creator has signed a deal with HBO to develop new shows for the network and its streaming service HBO Max over five years, EW has confirmed. This news comes amid reports that HBO is developing all the Game of Thrones prequels, intent on expanding the world of Westeros on screen. Per his most recent update on the book, Martin "wrote hundreds and hundreds of pages of THE WINDS OF WINTER in 2020. But: "I still have hundreds of more pages to write to bring the novel to a satisfactory conclusion.
Hackers Hosed by Google Were a Counterterrorism Operation
       
Meanwhile, a strain of ransomware called DearCry has been piggybacking off the same Microsoft Exchange vulnerabilities originally exploited by Chinese hackers for espionage worldwide. On Friday, MIT Tech Review reported that the hackers are agents from a Western government who were conducting a counterterrorism operation. And while ransomware attacks were a high-profile source of risk in 2020, the number of individual incidents totaled 2,474, with losses of over $29.1 million. IC3 data is imperfect, because not all incidents are reported—especially in cases like ransomware attacks, where victims are hesitant to admit that they paid attackers. The prolific REvil ransomware group asked a record-breaking $50 million in payment to decrypt Acer's systems and avoid having their exfiltrated data leaked.

Bekah Martinez Was Sexually Assaulted While on a Walk With Her Kids
       
This article contains accounts of sexual assault. The Bachelor alum shared a lengthy post on Instagram, detailing her recent sexual assault. "I was just out taking a walk, looking like this, pushing my sleeping baby and holding hands with my toddler, when a teenager skateboarded by and grabbed my ass," she wrote about the sexual assault. I’m mad that this kid felt bold enough to touch me in the middle of the day, in a neighborhood, with my children by my side. I’m mad that this isn’t the first time.
Kylie Jenner Turns Heads in the Nakedest Jumpsuit We've Ever Seen

The gorgeous reality star/businesswoman/mama stunned her followers when she posted a photo wearing a red see-through jumpsuit. She completed the look with red heels, a red coat, and a Louis Vuitton bag. It looks like Kylie is ~unbothered~ since the recent drama surrounding her former makeup artist, Samuel Rauda’s GoFundMe.

Did Hilary Duff Have Her Baby? Details on Her Mysterious IG Post
       
Hilary Duff is playing it coy this time around. She recently announced the birth of her third baby in a super subtle way. Hilary is married to Matthew Koma and this is their second child together (she also shares son Luca with her ex-husband, Mike Comrie). There's no photo of the little one, no photo with Matthew, and no news of the sex of the bb either. Hilary recently admitted that she had no idea if she was carrying a boy or a girl (despite recently dying her hair blue).
Did Hilary Duff just hint that she's given birth to her new baby?
       
Hilary Duff announced the happy news that she's expecting her third child back in October, and now the Lizzie McGuire star seems to have hinted that she's already given birth in her latest Instagram post. While Hilary hasn't directly announced the birth of her baby, her new post certainly seems to hint towards it, and it's pretty exciting if so. Posting a picture of her daughter Banks, age two, in the bath, Hilary wrote, "I’m a big sister ....... marinating on how I feel about that!" Hilary's Instagram followers certainly seem to have taken the picture as a baby announcement, with actress Debi Mazar, who starred in sitcom Younger alongside Hilary, writing, "Wait!!! Plus, various other friends of Hilary have also commented their congratulations, so they certainly seem to think that this is Hilary announcing her new arrival.
The 32 Greatest Character Actors Working Today
       
Before we get into the list, some housekeeping: What makes an actor a character actor? The most obvious definition is that a character actor is not a lead. Except that sometimes, aging stars will do their best work in character roles, while other character actors turn out to be stars-in-waiting. While an A-lister’s stock may rise and fall with the fashions of the day, a character actor can stay booked and busy for decades. This physicality, coupled with the sheer variety of roles he’s played, brings a Shakespearean quality to his screen presence.
'Bridgerton' Season 2 Will Include a Storyline Similar to Meghan and Harry
       
We're all prepared for Bridgerton season 2 to be ~amaze~ because season 1 was a sexy, dramatic, gossipy delight. We're not prepared for the second season of the Netflix period drama to include parallels to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. I could legit cry tears of joy because I love Daphne and Simon and I love Meghan and Harry and oh. "I mean Harry and Meghan, what's it like when you have a new baby? Well, for Daphne and Simon's sake, I hope they have an easier time navigating being new parents than Meghan and Harry.
Melanie Scrofano on Facing Wynonna Earp’s Demons
       
The intervention gets really intense, especially when Waverly accuses Wynonna of turning into their father. Everyone else in Wynonna’s life is moving forward, and you’ve talked about how Wynonna can’t see a way out of her current situation. And I think that that isolation, along with Doc choosing another path in life, has left Wynonna feeling really isolated. I think that part of why Jolene’s words were so powerful was because there was truth to them … She points to Wynonna’s isolation, essentially. And it kind of makes her independent of Wynonna, really, in a way she’s never been before.
Now a Democrat Is Accused of Trying to Overturn the Election
       
Photo: Bloomberg/Bloomberg via Getty ImagesA legal effort to try to overturn the results of the 2020 election is still ongoing. “It’s the ultimate in hypocrisy, in my mind,” said Hinson, who voted to certify the 2020 presidential election. While the process of contesting an election in the House may be common, it rarely leads to a result being overturned. Dean Philips, a two-term representative from Minnesota, tweeted on Monday, “Losing a House election by six votes is painful for Democrats. It is an issue that energizes base voters, is perfect fodder for Fox News segments and Wall Street Journal editorials, without alienating any swing voters and helps memory-hole the ugly aftermath of the 2020 election.

Duff first sneakily confirmed Mae’s birth in an Instagram post on Friday of Banks Violet, captioned “I’m a big sister ……. marinating on how I feel about that.” The picture apparently sent shockwaves through the cast of Duff’s show, Younger, with Debi Mazar commenting, “Wait!!! !Banks is a BIG sis!???
Get ‘Obsessed’ With Addison Rae’s Late-Night Debut
       
Amid plenty of conveniently timed relationship drama, Addison Rae made her late-night debut on The Tonight Show on Friday with her latest single, “Obsessed.” Rae’s performance, helped along by a team of dancers, evoked early Britney Spears, what with the intense (and now infamous) choreography and obvious lip-syncing. Well on her way to becoming a teen idol in her own right, Rae, who is starring in a remake of She’s All That for Netflix, is planning to drop two more singles produced by hitmakers Benny Blanco and Blake Slatkin. Rae’s debut on late night comes after ex-boyfriend Bryce Hall diplomatically addressed the cheating rumors surrounding his break-up with Rae in a YouTube video, saying, “We’ve mutually decided that it would be best if we parted ways.” For her part, Rae has neither confirmed nor denied the cheating allegations, but we can probably take her at her word when she sings, “And if I lost you / I’d still have me / I can’t lose.”Related
The Emotional Transformations of Beverly Cleary’s Work
       
Photo: Christina Koci Hernandez/San Francisco Chronicle by Getty ImagesNo one could write a foul mood like Beverly Cleary. My mother read the Ramona books to my younger sister and me when we were in early elementary school. Listening to my mother read Ramona out loud was accessing a form of double vision. But Cleary’s true genius was for the emotional realism she gradually developed alongside that external grounding. They listen to our voices as we read Ramona’s fears aloud and speak her concerns.
Biden Doesn’t Need to Be FDR or LBJ to Change America
       
Thus, in 2008, Barack Obama touted his ambition to change “the trajectory of America” in the same way that Ronald Reagan had done. By May 2020, Biden himself was broadcasting an ambition to be the next FDR. As Ackerman writes:Biden’s COVID relief plan is what you would have expected a President Joe Biden to pass in an emergency. The Biden coalition may be incapable of delivering a Great Society, but a markedly better one is within reach. In terms of partisan polarization, early Biden looks more like early Trump than he does like any previous president.
March Madness Daily: Juwan Howard vs. Dawn Staley Money Matchup
       
Dawn Staley and Juwan Howard both had successful professional basketball careers before stepping off the court and onto the sidelines. Not bad, but it still pales in comparison to the $149 million Howard is estimated to have earned during his 19-season NBA career, according to Spotrac. Her contract calls for an escalating NCAA tournament bonus, which starts at $25,000 for a first-round victory and jumps to $50,000 for an appearance in the Sweet 16.

George R. R. Martin has inked a new deal with HBO that will allow the author to develop more series for the network and its HBO Max streaming service, including multiple Game of Thrones spinoffs. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Martin’s new pact with HBO spans five years and is worth mid-eight figures. The news comes just weeks after HBO revealed that at least five Game of Thrones spinoffs and prequels are in the works, and ensures Martin’s continued input on the in-development series. Non-GoT projects that Martin has in development include series adapted from Nnedi Okorafor’s post-apocalyptic novel Who Fears Death and Roger Zelazny’s fantasy novel Roadmarks, with Martin set to executive produce both shows.

TikTok star-turned-pop singer Addison Rae made her late-night TV debut Friday to perform her first single “Obsessed” live on The Tonight Show. Also during the episode, Rae taught host Jimmy Fallon some of her viral dance moves, and later discussed her social media fame and shift into pop music. Earlier this month, in tandem with the release of “Obsessed,” Rae spoke to Rolling Stone about her slow, behind-the-scenes build toward a music career. It takes a lot of time to figure out who you are as an artist,” Rae said. “A lot of people assume that just because of TikTok, I get things handed to me.

Watch the Weather Station Perform ‘Ignorance’ Songs on ‘CBS This Morning’
       
The Weather Station performed three tracks off their acclaimed new album Ignorance for CBS This Morning’s latest “Saturday Sessions.”For the virtual performance, Toronto singer-songwriter Tamara Lindeman — who has recorded under the Weather Station moniker for over a decade — and her well-dressed, masked band delivered “Parking Lot,” “Loss” and “Tried to Tell You” from Ignorance, which was informed largely by Lindeman’s concerns about climate change; the latter track hones in on global warming. Lindeman previously said in a statement, “I feel like I spend half my life working on trying to stay positive. My whole generation does. But if you spend any time at all reading about the climate situation circa now, positivity and lightness are not fully available to you anymore; you have to find new ways to exist and to see, even just to watch the sunset.”“Lindeman treats Ignorance as a breakup-record with her own dying planet, grappling with what she describes, at one point, as the ‘fragile idea that anything matters,’” Rolling Stone said of the album in a four-star review. “Alternating between glassy piano dance grooves and somber noir-folk explorations, the result is an album that sounds like a millennial Joni Mitchell fronting jazzy versions of LCD Soundsystem or the National, depending on the song.”Other recent “Saturday Sessions” included Valerie June, Black Pumas, Waxahatchee with Kevin Morby and Julien Baker.

“Larry through stubbornness and brilliance kept going,” said Ossana. “I think Larry just decided he wanted to have a companion,” said Ossana. He came to trust me and my judgement.” McMurtry never transitioned to writing on a computer. Writing together “was very easy, because Larry and I finished each other’s sentences, our feelings, and our thoughts,” she said. He wrote the most realistic compelling characters, good and bad, that actors want to play, and people want to love.”Sitting here thinking of the greatness of Larry McMurtry.
Sharon Osbourne Leaves ‘The Talk’ After Heated On-Air Discussion, Internal Investigation
       
Sharon Osbourne has left her position on the daytime talk show The Talk following a heated on-air conversation about race as well as accusations of racist comments that led to an internal investigation by CBS. “Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave The Talk,” CBS said in a statement Friday (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Lil Nas X Claps Back at Critics of ‘Montero’ Video
       
Following the release of his red-hot music video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” Lil Nas X isn’t holding back when it comes to responding to haters on Twitter.

Democrats Aren’t Doing Enough to Address America’s Mental Health Crisis
       
Our collective trauma is recast as a personal crisis, a private concern to be shared between you and your doctor. Americans’ assessment of their own mental health is at its lowest point in decades. This erosion of our mental health will only be compounded in a post-pandemic world if stimulus funds dry up, eviction moratoriums are lifted, and people are herded back into offices with superficial shows of sanitation. The World Health Organization’s report on social determinants of mental health recognizes the threat of inequality to mental health. Democrats should address those anxieties substantively, with policies that speak to the root causes of the country’s mental health crisis.
Arby’s Says It Helped Kill the $15 Minimum Wage
       
The parent company of some of America’s largest fast-food chains is claiming credit for convincing Congress to exclude a $15 minimum wage from the recent COVID relief bill, according to internal company documents reviewed by The Daily Poster. The company, which is owned by a private equity firm named after an Ayn Rand character, also says it is now working to thwart new union rights legislation. The company’s boasts come just a few months after a government report found that some of its chains had among the highest percentage of workers relying on food stamps. Inspire Brands — which owns Jimmy John’s, Arby’s, Sonic, and Buffalo Wild Wings, plus recently acquired Dunkin’ Donuts for $11.3 billion in November — on Thursday sent employees and franchisees a review of its government lobbying activity that highlighted its success in keeping the $15 minimum wage out of Democrats’ American Rescue Plan, the COVID-19 relief bill President Joe Biden signed earlier this month. “We were successful in our advocacy efforts to remove the Raise the Wage Act, which would have increased the federal minimum wage to $15 and eliminated the tip credit,” reads the report.
There’s Never Been a Better Time to Abolish the Monarchy
       
Multiple defenses of the monarchy appeared in publications like the Federalist and the National Review. In a National Review article entitled “An American Defense of Britain’s Constitutional Monarchy,” the Heritage Foundation’s Joseph Loconte rails against the “the Left” and “the radical Left” for its hostility to the monarchy. So, really, if you think about it hard enough, a successful revolution to throw off the rule of Britain’s monarchy redounded to the credit of . Britain’s monarchy. More serious defenses of the monarchy often revolve around the idea that the institution has provided “stability and continuity” while allowing democratic institutions to evolve.
We Need an Anti-Imperialist Alternative to Biden’s Status Quo Foreign Policy
       
Interview by Ana Kasparian Nando VilaEarlier this week, Axios reported that Joe Biden “loves the growing narrative that he’s bolder and bigger-thinking than President Obama.”One dramatic exception: foreign policy. While Biden and others in the political establishment have dropped their usual paeans to belt-tightening, there’s no indication Biden will make any foreign policy moves that could be spun as “bolder and bigger-thinking.” He hasn’t even reentered Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal yet. To sort out Biden’s foreign policy, Ana Kasparian and Nando Vila, cohosts of Weekends, recently spoke with historian and Jacobin contributing editor Daniel Bessner about China; the United States’ sprawling, opaque national security state; and the need for a leftist, anti-imperialist alternative. Their conversation has been edited and condensed for clarity.
Yuh-Line Niou Urges Chinatown Residents to Claim Their Power
       
Yuh-Line Niou has been one of the most outspoken members of the New York State Assembly since being elected in 2016 to Sheldon Silver’s former seat in Lower Manhattan. Last Sunday, Niou spoke at a rally for Asian American lives at Columbus Park, a popular gathering spot for the local Chinatown community. They fuse the personal and the political and don’t hesitate to indict deeply entrenched systems of racism, sexism and classism and demand fundamental change. “Until our systems are made in our image, we’re here to dismantle theirs.”Niou is reflective of all of these trends. And it is to keep us from reaching it.”That same structural racism, she notes, has led to her community being shortchanged in Albany.
Walmart’s Company Town of Bentonville, Arkansas
       
But the foundation’s self-appointed role of NWA’s regional developer actually functions as a three-pronged accumulation strategy for the Walton family. Walmart’s Urban Utopia For over a generation, Walmart’s massive, highly integrated distribution network has imposed itself across the global economy. Since 2003, Walton family members have injected billions into the Walton Family Foundation through twenty-one charitable trusts. Before building their Bentonville utopia, the Walton Family Foundation spent the bulk of its philanthropy dollars privatizing public education. Today, the Walton Foundation currently issues about $575 million in annual grants, with half of those going to NWA redevelopment projects.
This May Be This Foreign Correspondent's Final Column
       
In September 2020, oncologists diagnosed me with Stage IV prostate cancer. (I notice that doctors don’t actually say “die” or even “pass away.” They never say “croak” or “bite the dust” either.) But most prostate cancer is slow-growing, my doctor assured me. The doctors knew my dad had died of prostate cancer in his mid-seventies, about my current age. And so I write what I believe will be my final column, confident that I have life left in these withering bones.
Celebrating Women Leaders of the Religious Socialism Movement
       
They all stand on the shoulders of women who built the religious socialism movement in past generations, including:Vida Dutton Scudder (1861-1954). Scudder was active in the Socialist Party of America, a supporter of striking textile workers, and an activist for women's suffrage. For more on Willard—and other women socialists of her era, check out Mari Jo Buhle's Women and American Socialism, 1870-1920 (Chicago: U. of Illinois Press, 1983). There are many more women who have led the U.S. religious socialist movement in recent years, including the Catholic theologian and feminist scholar Rosemary Radford Ruether and the German liberation theologian Dorothee Solle, who helped build the RS Working Group in its earliest days. The movement to connect the socialist cause with religious beliefs in the human right to shelter, healthcare, and necessities owes them a great debt.
On a Quilt of Oppressions and Injustices
       
In our society, poor and low-income women of color—many of whom have been compelled to work in poorly-paid, dangerous, and often exploitative trades across the globe—are bound to face multi-layered oppressions and injustices, especially in wartime but also in peacetime. A particularly ugly segment of that patchwork quilt can be found in none other than this country's own war in Indochina more than five decades ago. In that war, racism, sexism, and neo-colonialism coalesced into a monstrous war machine that systematically dehumanized and sexually exploited indigenous women. One thing remains certain: there is no disentangling the ugly patterns without destroying the entire quilt. It was, surely, another day of being a woman and an Asian person struggling to leave their marks on a blemished patchwork quilt.
The U.S. Has a Moral Obligation to Forgive the World’s Debts ? Current Affairs
       
As consumer debt pressures individuals to twist their lives around repaying it, sovereign debt contorts nations in a similar way. But consumer debt in the U.S. and the sovereign debt of nations around the world are morally and politically linked. But the current sovereign debt system has not institutionalized debt jubilees as an integral part of its function. Creditors’ racial prejudice also makes its way into sovereign debts the same way it influences consumer debts. But the moral case is crystal clear: the global debts must be canceled.
What the 2021 Suez Canal Blockage Reveals About the History and Politics of Global Shipping
       
On the morning of March 23, a gargantuan freighter laden with containers , heading north to the Mediterranean, ran aground in the Suez Canal. A strong gust and the hydrodynamics of shallow waters pushed the merchant vessel Ever Given into the east bank of the canal. Ironically, as my new book explains, the most dramatic leaps in ship sizes were precipitated by Suez Canal politics in the 1950s and 1960s. Decades later, it's the vast size of the ship that makes refloating it so difficult. Egyptian officials appeared confident the canal could reopen within days, while salvage engineers cautioned that freeing the stuck ship might take weeks.
It’s 1974 again....
       
Randy Newman’s “Rednecks” has been repeat playing in my head after watching the recent wave of good old boy politics returning to the land. The 1974 album was titled “Good Old Boys” as well. Black and white, male and female loving one another, marrying one another having children….in the mid ‘70’s! The song is playing again 47 years later ……...for real this time..as real as troopers arresting a legislator for daring to knock on a white man’s door.

TUCKER CARLSON AGREES WITH THE IDEA OF A FULL-BLOWN FASCIST TAKEOVER WITH GUEST JESSE KELLY
       
Then, to further address the outrage, he brought on conservative talk show host Jesse Kelly. “How do you think it would work if you lied on a federal gun form?” Carlson asked. ” I think I wouldn’t be on your show right now unless they were allowing me to do it from Fort Leavenworth somewhere,” Kelly replied. They’re breaking down, Tucker,” Kelly said. “I have said this before and I’m telling you I’m worried that I’m right.

Ali Velshi uses his impressive immigrant story to excoriate Republicans for suppressing democracy.
       
No one explains the Republican attack on Democracy other than Ali Velshi, who uses his immigrant story to get the message through. Georgia rushed through a voter suppression bill this week. Ali Velshi details like very few could, in simple words, the path Republicans are using. They are using our democracy to morph us into minority rule, the possibility of an autocracy. He itemizes the insidiousness of the Republican voter suppression bill.
Swing States Now and Future, Who moves Rep, Who moves Dem?
       
Swing States: Great LakesThe manufacturing center (in popular imagination anyway) of america, producing high horsepower cars and even higher horsepower blenders*. For future presidential elections, it’s probably off swing state duty unless the election goes really well for dems. Pennsylvania 2 party marginThe state’s voting patterns are like its fellow trio of doom states, but less extreme. The Future Will Be Different Tomorrow; Future Swing StatesWhat states will go swingy in the future, maybe a decade or so away? No, I’m not high on coffee, these are no question highly republican states and will be in the near future.
Say their names
       
@aaja has just released a video pronunciation guide for the names of 6 victims in the #Atlanta shooting. Soon Chung Park lived most of her life in the New York metro area before moving to Atlanta to manage the Gold Spa. Xiaojie Tan was also a licensed massage therapist and the owner of Young’s Asian Spa. Daoyou Feng had only been working at Young’s Asian Spa for a few months. According to the mother of his godson, Mr. Michels had been out of work for some time and had been doing maintenance work at Young’s Asian Spa when the shooting occurred.
GA election Law – Casino Theory Peeps
       
The Georgia State QGOP have enacted a new voting law that restricts voting but will probably have the opposite effect – more Georgians will actually cast a vote – citing, here, former GOP Chair Michael Steele and Mike Murphy GOP Strategist (Brian Williams MSNBC Show). Clearly this is among the most anti-democratic measures enacted by any state government since civil rights legislation was enacted. In the Senate, there will be 20 GOP / 14 Dem seats that get vacated once the 117th Congress ends. Pelosi is going to be the “default” Speaker prior to the 118th Congress seating new House Members and taking the first votes. Almost all of the most egregious anti-democratic laws are being enacted by States with a majority of their House delegation being QGOP.

How to tell if someone's a brainwashed authoritarian Trump cultist: See what they laugh at
       
Abstract (emphasis added):This study investigated biased message processing of political satire in The Colbert Report and the influence of political ideology on perceptions of Stephen Colbert. Results indicate that political ideology influences biased processing of ambiguous political messages and source in late-night comedy. Using data from an experiment (N = 332), we found that individual-level political ideology significantly predicted perceptions of Colbert's political ideology. Finally, a post hoc analysis revealed that perceptions of Colbert's political opinions fully mediated the relationship between political ideology and individual-level opinion. Satire as a Device for Engaging Audiences in Public Debate” prompted me to ask myself whether Trump cultist types even “get” satire.

An incomplete journey through the biggest blunders, gaffes, and miscalculations in politics
       
Did Cruz voters see this and change their minds about him? The McCain campaign wouldn't let Palin get near a reporter's microphone for weeks after she was selected. Early speculation that this might be an “October Surprise” that would lead to Trump’s withdrawal from the campaign was dashed quickly as a two-prong defense—deflection and rationalization—was employed by the Trump campaign. Gaffes matter to those voters, but only the ones they think should matter. Gaffes, of course, have tremendous power to shape both popular culture and our memories, lingering long after a campaign is over.
The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia
       
*You see, folks, on Thursday, March 25, 2021, thanks to the fine Republicans in Georgia’s legislature and to that model governor, Brian Kemp, the lights went out in Georgia. To help you understand why the lights went out, let me quote from the brilliant commentator, Heather Cox Richardson:There is only one story today. I ask you…is this the Georgia, the fourth state of the original 13 to ratify the Constitution? Take a look at the lowlights of this new Georgia law (for which the passing and signing process was “faster than a speeding bullet.”). Heather Cox Richardson wrote, there are “…more than 250 measures in 43 states designed to keep Republicans in power no matter what voters want.”Yes, the lights went out in Georgia.
A tool in the box of solutions to the new Georgia Jim Crow law
       
Hours in the sun, thirst and hunger, patience all are stresses that have to be endured just to cast a ballot. Georgia just made it illegal to provide food and water to voters standing in line. Wheelchairs. Wheelchairs provide a place to sit. And after the citizen has voted, the wheelchair can be given to another citizen to relieve their burden while waiting.

Republicans went all in some time ago
       
1926 KKK demonstration in WashingtonWill the Republicans play out their hand, or are they bluffing? In case you haven’t noticed, the Republicans have gone all in, Texas hold’em style. The North looked the other way and market capitalism was content for 100 years to leave things largely undisturbed. The Republican Party has gone full circleRepublican Sabotage is DeliberateOnce the Anti-slavery Party, the Republican Party has gone full circle, starting in the 50s when they not so slowly became primarily the party of white supremacy. If the Republicans prevail, a period of Civil War is possible and a destabilization of profits.
Manchin and the Filibuster: How’s It Going to Go?
       
The filibuster and the fate of the nationOrdinarily, the question of “How will this particular Senator vote on this particular issue?” is of limited significance. But, conceivably, in the case of how West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin will deal with the issue of filibuster reform, much of America’s future may hang on the answer. Hence the question: will Manchin use his virtual veto power to substantially cripple the Biden presidency? And how Manchin decides will tell us a great deal about what kind of man he is. On the other hand, Manchin has an opportunity to have a big positive impact – at a most crucial moment -- on America’s path forward.
DKos Asheville Open Thread: Final approval for monument demolition

We hope this local and wider community can help leverage our orange passion for progressive politics to move the country forward.
You might be a republican
       
If you think that gun ownership is a God-given right, you might be a republican. If you think second amendment rights should be omnipresent and extend even to the criminally insane, you might be a republican. (Just ask Jim Jordan ??)If you profess undying devotion to the constitution, but don’t know the difference between the Bill of Rights and a bill of sale, you might be a republican. If you don’t know the difference between a social democracy and communist totalitarianism , you might be a republican. Republican or not, if you fall into one or more of these categories, you are most certainly an un-American asshole!
But your love won't pay my bills I VANT MONEY!
       
This my first DK blog and I post it here because this is the place I like to go for my political actions. The Daily Kos has always had a lot of good community-based ideas that I agree with, so adding my name to a mail-in campaign is usually not a problem. Why I write this today is because from around the time of 2020 election cycle and the subsequent Georgia Senate run-offs a trend seems to be emerging. What’s become of the idea that there is strength in numbers, and not just dollars? What has happened to the currency of one voter’s name and signature?

In Politics, Timing Is EVERYTHING!
       
In response to a reporter’s question on gun control (in light of the recent Boulder shootings), Joe Biden said this:It's a matter of timing. Furthermore, of all the Biden legislation, this is the one with the best chance of getting some Republican support. Lastly, an Infrastructure spending bill can have some political side benefits in terms of old time politics. Let me close on a somewhat related note, in terms of related to that all important concept of political timing. As I said at the beginning, In politics, timing is EVERYTHING!
Finally, gardening is finally here!
       
Whether this is your first time gardening or you have been gardening for 60 years (as I have in my 80 years of life), there is always something new to learn. Because of their quick growth, they will be harvested before the strawberries and peas are large enough to shade the quick inter-cropping. The intercropping of early crops will work toward keeping a variety of crops on the earth at all times as well as allowing interaction of different plants. They will cause the peas to produce nitrogen that will migrate to the strawberries and all the other crops planted nearby. Finally, gardening is finally here!
Paul's Book Reviews
       
There's a fascinating story here, the last point in particular one I haven't seen explored in any science fiction novel or story I've read ... and I've read a lot. At one point I put the book aside to read some reviews on Goodreads; one of the reviewers counseled patience ... all my questions would be answered, he said. I stovepipe, publishing my reviews as standalone blog posts, not normally discussing what I've read in other posts. My overwhelming sense of the book, now I've read it, remains as above. I'm less happy with "Below Zero" than I have been with previous Joe Pickett novels.
After over a decade spent playing World of Warcraft, I finally have Black avatars
       
It’s not surprising that, due to my reading choices, I would choose role-playing video games that allowed me to step into those fantasy worlds. Yet, as video games continue to grow, both in popularity and scope, racism and harassment remain endemic to the experience. There's plenty about Wreck List of Garrosh (US-H) that's a little different from your run-of-the-mill World of Warcraft guild. With a median member age of about 40, Wreck List boasts well over 200 members, half of them women. Wreck List Guild.
20 worst places for GLBTQI+ travelers, collected by Forbes magazine.
       
Yet again Forbes magazine has compiled a list of the 20 worst places for a gay person to travel to. I do not want to cut and paste the whole article, obviously, so I will only provide why they rank the number 1 worst place as the worst place (Nigeria) and if you’re interested please go read the reasons for the other rankings. He would related stories of this mistreatment and penalties for being gay and being in the country. He applied for, and was granted asylum to the United States for fear of being gay and having to go back. Again, if you’re interested I suggest you go to the original article to see why a specific area is included, as well as to see their 5 top places for gay travelers.
Money talks. Often that's bad, but sometimes it's good.
       
After muting Lindell's microphone, a Newsmax anchor told viewers that the My Pillow Inc founder's claims were unsubstantiated and unverified. The anchor then read a prepared statement that included: "Newsmax accepts the (election) results as legal and final." Since Newsmax is considered to be far to the right of Fox News, this has got to mean something. It can be terribly frustrating when actual, provable facts are ignored by bad actors who don’t WANT to accept those facts. But it is somewhat heartening to discover that when actual facts become combined with a potential monetary impact in a court of law, people’s minds suddenly become more amenable to reason.

She made it clear with her narrative that identity politics seem to be mentioned solely when relegated to people of color and others. But when dealing with the majority population, somehow white-economic-anxiety, soccer mom, Joe-The-Plumber, NASCAR Dad, and other cute names don't reflect just that, identity politics. Tiffany Cross had some closing advice for Meghan McCain.
Saturday Morning Garden Blogging Vol. 17.13
       
Part of my day was wandering around and familiarizing myself with all the different garden related items they had so I could help people find things. Soon this indoor area will be filled with bedding plants of all kindsHere’s where I’ll be today. The biggest task will be talking people out of plants we know won’t make it yet because they will freeze. Since there’s no watering to be done at this point, I will probably be helping unpack the new shipments of yard art etc. The perennial yard segues into the trees and the back area, where the bulk soil and compost is.
The Daily Bucket: Squirrels are damaging the natural environment
       
The invasion of the grey squirrel in the United Kingdom can be classified as a Disease Mediated Invasion (DMI)PoxvirusIn addition to competition for resources, the spread of the squirrel poxvirus from grey squirrels to reds is thought to be a major factor in the decline of red squirrel populations. [6] Grey squirrels do not die from the squirrelpox virus and can infect red squirrels causing the appearance of scabs and lesions on the face, feet, and genitals and eventually death. [6] In Great Britain, grey squirrels have been able to spread 17-25 times faster through competitive exclusion of the red squirrel due to increased mortality of reds from the squirrelpox virus. [7] For example, Garry oak trees on Vancouver Island have become endangered due to urban development and the presence of invasive species including the grey squirrel. illegal and allowed importations and escapes of grey squirrels from captivity pose threats to native red squirrel and tree populations.en.m.wikipedia.org/…"Worst case scenario,grey squirrels will reach the Western Alps by 2015, France by 2026, and Switzerland between 2031 and 2041"Ha ha.....
Former Trump officials behaving badly: Redfield and Slaoui
       
The SARS-CoV-2 virus was sequenced in January 2020, Analysis immediately showed that virus is, as the name implies, very similar to the SARS-CoV virus that causes the disease SARS. Redfield’s entire basis for claiming that COVID-19 didn’t come straight from bats is that it’s too infectious. Once in charge of Operation Warp Speed, Slaoui took an approach that seemed to guarantee a vaccine shortage. “I won’t leave those shares,” said Slaoui before giving his old company $2.1 billion, “because that’s my retirement.”Retirement sounds like a good idea … for both Slaoui and Redfield. When CNN is looking for scientists who can shine some light on the COVID-19 vaccine, these two are among the last they should question.
I'll risk arrest to give water to Georgia voters, but there are other ways to fight
       
Coca-Cola has donated over $30,000 to politicians co-sponsoring voter suppression bills while referring to themselves as allies to the movement. We expect the businesses that we support to SUPPORT us and fight against racist policies that undermine voting rights. Some companies, like SalesForce, have taken a firm stance standing up against Black voter suppression, yet Coke wouldn't even comment. Georgia is turning back the clock on voting rights because Abrams’ Fair Fight Action was so wildly successful in 2020. The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act would restore parts of the Voting Rights Act—including requiring states that consistently engage in voting suppression tactics to pre-clear voting laws with the federal government.
Public Lands: Ghost town and pandemic (photo diary)
       
In 1895, the town of Garnet was established. In 1934, gold prices were raised and, together with new technology, another gold boom began. By 1948, the general store had closed, and souvenir hunters were looting the town. Today the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Garnet Preservation Association maintain Garnet in a state of arrested decay. In response to the pandemic the BLM has closed the visitor center as well as several of the town’s historic buildings, such as the hotel, general store, and saloon.

This Muslim Women’s Day, let's celebrate America's trailblazing Muslim women
       
But Muslim women don’t just encompass the women you see on the screen, they come from all ethnicities and backgrounds. To break the negative and weak portrayal of Muslim women in Hollywood and grossly embedded in the mind of Americans, Muslim Women's Day was created to reclaim that narrative. The day not only supports Muslim women but celebrates their accomplishments, which are often excluded or not highlighted in mainstream media. "In the current climate, Muslim women are rarely given the space to be heard above all the noise," Al-Khatahtbeh wrote in a tweet. Here’s a list of some trailblazing Muslim women who have broken the glass ceiling in various fields.
Abbreviated Pundit Roundup: we still have a pandemic to deal with, even if DC reporters are bored
       
"What I'm worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is," Biden said during his first White House press conference. x A study showed voters in predominantly black neighborhoods waited 29 percent longer, on average, than those in white neighborhoods. President Biden has promised enough doses by the end of May to immunize all of the nation’s roughly 260 million adults. President Biden, in a sharp reversal from his predecessor, has signaled that he wants to raise taxes on the wealthy, corporations and estates. In multiple ways, the measure appears designed to target African American voters, the very voters who drove the 2020 Democratic wins.
Joe Biden wiped the floor with Republicans at his press conference. They should be very, very afraid
       
When it came to GOP efforts to take a wrecking ball to voting rights across the country, Biden lambasted Republicans. "The Republican voters I know find this despicable," Biden said. Voters,” he said, emphasizing the split between GOP voters and party elites. In fact, plenty of those GOP voters were drinking in Biden’s message, word for word. But no one with any allegiance to the actual Republican Party has the juice right now to lead an opposition movement to the Democrats, much less Joe Biden.
Reopening too soon: In the race between the virus and vaccinations, the virus is winning
       
While trends may be nothing but illusory, the number of active cases at any given time certainly sets the stage for what happens next. So a large number of new cases does not guarantee an increase the following day, but it provides that possibility. The Sunshine State has also seen a return to triple-digit daily deaths after an encouraging trend earlier this month. Original calculations based around the best estimates of COVID-19’s transmissibility set a baseline of about 65% of the population before a significant herd immunity effect would set in. Which makes it impossible to ever reach the level of vaccination needed for herd immunity, even without factoring in children or people who can’t be vaccinated for medical reasons.
Saudi offers to allow fuel ships in Yemen peace proposal, after CNN investigation exposes toll of blockade
       
Abu Dhabi, UAE (CNN) Saudi Arabia's top diplomat has announced a UN-backed proposal to end the six-year conflict in Yemen, including an offer of a ceasefire and the lifting of a Saudi-imposed sea and air blockade on the Iran-backed Houthi rebels. This proposal follows a recent CNN investigation which revealed that not a single oil tanker has been able to dock in the Houthi-controlled port of Hodeidah this year because of the blockade enforced by Saudi warships. CNN's investigation triggered calls from the UN Yemen Envoy Martin Griffiths and WFP Chief David Beasley for Saudi Arabia to lift its blockade and allow fuel into the country. His statement marked the first time that Saudi Arabia has publicly acknowledged obstructing fuel ships into Hodeidah, which the UN calls "unacceptable" on humanitarian grounds. Saudi Arabia said that the initiative is pending acceptance by both the Houthi rebels and Yemen's internationally recognized government, which has Saudi backing.
U.S. Yemen envoy says ceasefire plan before Houthi leadership, urges response
       
A Saudi Arabia-led military coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015 after the Iran-allied Houthi group ousted the country's government from the capital Sanaa. "We now have a sound plan for a nationwide ceasefire with elements that would immediately address Yemen's dire humanitarian situation directly," Lenderking said. "That plan has been before the Houthi leadership for a number of days." He provided no further details, and said the plan has Saudi support. The "most egregious" interference has been by the Houthis in northern Yemen, she said, prompting the partial suspension last year of U.S. support to nongovernmental humanitarian groups that "cautiously" was lifted on Friday.
'Is this patriot enough?' Asian American elected official reveals battle scars to prove his loyalty
       
Because some Americans just can’t stop being awful long enough for us to digest the last awful thing, the media spin cycle seems to have largely washed away the March 16 Atlanta-area shootings that claimed the lives of eight people, including six women of Asian descent. The massacre further highlighted the kind of abuse—physical and verbal—that’s proliferated in the wake of the novel coronavirus’ emergence, which a certain ocher ogre used to stir up even more hatred and division, in part by calling COVID-19 the “China virus” or the “kung flu,” and scapegoating China to distract from his own rank incompetence. Well, enough is enough, and at least one Asian American elected official, a long-serving veteran, is using this teachable moment to deliver a scorching lesson about true patriotism.
Drone strike on Riyadh oil refinery claimed by Houthis causes fire
       
The refinery is operated by state-controlled oil giant Saudi Aramco. The attack, which happened at 6:05 a.m. Saudi time (0305 GMT), did not result in injuries or deaths, and did not disrupt the supply of oil or oil derivatives, the energy ministry said. The Iran-aligned Houthis have stepped up attacks into Saudi Arabia, the world’s top oil exporter, in recent weeks. The Saudi energy ministry said this and other attacks had targeted the security and stability of the world’s energy supply, not just Saudi Arabia. A residential compound in Dhahran used by Saudi Aramco was also targeted.
US drone strike case appealed to Germany’s highest court
       
BERLIN (AP) — Two Yemeni men who allege their relatives were killed in an American drone strike have appealed their case to Germany’s highest court, urging a ban on the U.S. military’s use of a base southwest of Frankfurt to help control such attacks, their attorneys said Tuesday. The Muenster court stopped short of ordering the ban that the human rights activists had called for. ADVERTISEMENTIn the 2020 appeal, the federal court in Leipzig ruled that German diplomatic outreach to the U.S. over the strikes was sufficient, regardless of international law. But the Leipzig court concluded that there was no direct link to Germany in the case, citing the provision of technical relay capabilities as insufficient. It wasn’t immediately clear when the Federal Constitutional Court would consider the latest appeal.
‘This is hell’: UN food aid chief visits Yemen, fears famine
       
FILE - In this Nov. 23, 2019 file photo, a woman holds her malnourished boy at a feeding center at the Al-Sabeen Hospital in Sanaa, Yemen. Beasley visited Yemen earlier this week, including the capital of Sanaa which is under the control of Iran-backed Houthi rebels. He said that at a child malnutrition ward in a Sanaa hospital he saw children wasting away from lack of food. A pledging conference last month raised a little more than half from the international community of what was needed to continue food aid services for the next year. One source of funding for Yemen could be a new anonymous aid fund.
Aid group reports spike in COVID-19 patients in Yemen
       
CAIRO (AP) — The international aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres said on Thursday it is witnessing “a dramatic influx” of critically ill COVID-19 patients in war-stricken Yemen, as a second wave overwhelms the country’s depleted medical facilities. ADVERTISEMENTMore than 3,000 infectious cases, including 800 deaths, have been recorded in Yemen since the outbreak of the pandemic. The Geneva-based relief agency said that it has been running the COVID-19 treatment center in Al Gamhouria hospital in the city of Aden where all 11 ICU beds are currently occupied. “Unfortunately, many of the patients we see are already in a critical medical condition when they arrive,” said Line Lootens, MSF medical coordinator in Yemen. “Most patients need very high levels of oxygen and medical treatment.
Bill Gates Reacts to "Crazy and Evil" Conspiracy Theories About Him
       
In an interview with Reuters, Gates said the millions of online posts and “crazy conspiracy theories” about him and about top U.S. infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci had likely taken hold in part because of the combination of a frightening viral pandemic and the rise of social media. “Nobody would have predicted that I and Dr. Fauci would be so prominent in these really evil theories,” Gates said. “I’m very surprised by that.

US Sinks to New Low in Rankings of World's Democracies
       
The US has fallen to a new low in a global ranking of political rights and civil liberties, a drop fueled by unequal treatment of minority groups, damaging influence of money in politics, and increased polarization, according to a new report by Freedom House, a democracy watchdog group. The US earned 83 out of 100 possible points this year in Freedom House’s annual rankings of freedoms around the world, an 11-point drop from its 94 ranking a decade ago. The US’s new ranking places it on par with countries like Panama, Romania and Croatia and behind countries such as Argentina and Mongolia. It lagged far behind countries like the United Kingdom (93), Chile (93), Costa Rica (91) and Slovakia (90). Red, White and Blue(Image by Olin Gilbert) Details DMCA
Tiffany Cross schools Meghan McCain for silly Identity Politics comment on Asian Senators' actions
       
(Image by Egberto Willies) Details DMCAMSNBC's Tiffany Cross, the host of the Cross Connection, excoriated Meghan McCain for her ignorant statement on Identity Politics. Tiffany Cross did not hold back. She made it clear with her narrative that identity politics seem to be mentioned solely when relegated to people of color and others. But when dealing with the majority population, somehow white-economic-anxiety, soccer mom, Joe-The-Plumber, NASCAR Dad, and other cute names don't reflect just that, identity politics. Tiffany Cross had some closing advice for Meghan McCain.

Congress Switchboard: 202-224-3121"In Bottom-Up, Rob Kall offers important insights on why our society is in such disarray and what we must do to change it. Rob shows how lasting change must come from the people themselves and not from the leaders. Indigenous elders have told me, "if you want to change the world, start talking and keep talking." Rob is doing this with this book and with his OpEdNews, and he is making a difference. I recommend this book to all who wish to see lasting, human-friendly, compassionate change that will sustain humanity is this crazy world of today."
Calls Mount To Boycott Coca-Cola After Home State Of Georgia Strangles Voting Rights
       
coca-cola-crates.jpg(Image by inov8d) Details DMCA'Calls grew Friday for a consumer boycott of Coca-Cola after the mammoth corporation largely stood by as its home state, Georgia, passed one of the biggest crackdowns on voting rights in recent history....'Coca-Cola has come under particular pressure over the voting rights crackdown. Critics held a 'die in' earlier this month to protest the company’s lack of action at its Atlanta tourist attraction.

Threat of Authoritarianism Is No Longer on the Horizon: It's Arrived in the GOP
       
Democracy(Image by pedrosimoes7) Details DMCA'Democracy has always been fragile in the United States, but at the present moment, it has moved from being imperfect to collapsing under the rubric of a failed state. The threat of authoritarianism is no longer on the horizon. It has arrived, forecasting a bleak future haunted by the poisonous ghosts of a poisonous past. 'The Republican Party no longer hides its racism and boldly engages in widespread voter suppression. As of February 27, 253 restrictive voting bills in 43 states have been either introduced or pre-filed, mostly by Republicans.'
Fake News Travels 6 Times Faster Than the Truth, Study Shows
       
A new study finds that false information on the social media network travels six times faster than the truth and reaches far more people. They found that “fake news” sped through Twitter “farther, faster, deeper and more broadly than the truth in all categories of information,” according to the study in Thursday’s journal Science . Social media companies have experimented with using computer algorithms and human fact-checkers to try to weed out false information and abuse online. She also suggested that calling this bogus information “false stories” does not capture how malignant it is. The researchers dug deeper to find out what kind of false information travels faster and farther.
Democrats Could Undo Trump Policies Faster, But They’re Not. Why?
       
There is one tool, however, that Biden and the Democratic Congress could use to undo the policies the Trump administration left behind. With a few exceptions, it applies to only those Trump administration policies finalized between Aug. 21, 2020, and Jan. 20, 2021. KHN is tracking health regulations, guidance and executive orders implemented during Trump’s term and whether those policies will continue under the Biden administration. That raises another hurdle the White House has encountered as it tries to change health policy. Keith said one possible use would be on a last-minute Trump regulation known as the sunset rule.
Sanders Will Push to Expand and Enhance Medicare Through the Infrastructure Bill
       
“We have to look at the structural long-term problems facing our people,” Sanders told the outlet in an interview Friday. We’re talking about human infrastructure.”“In the rescue plan, we were able to take a major step forward in lowering child poverty — very important,” Sanders added. Surveys have shown that the idea of lowering the Medicare eligibility age — which has been at 65 or older since the program’s inception in 1965 — is popular with the American public. A GoHealth survey from last October found that 70% of respondents not on Medicare at the time and 58% of Medicare beneficiaries supported the idea. Additionally, according to an analysis by the healthcare consulting firm Avalere, lowering the Medicare eligibility age to 60 could extend the program’s coverage to as many as 23 million people.
Cops Hired by Amazon Are Intimidating Workers and Supporters of the Union Drive
       
If this union vote is successful, it will be the first union of Amazon workers in the United States. We arrived at the Bessemer facility to stand in solidarity with the workers and take footage of the facility. Left Voice reporters stopped by Bessemer police and Amazon security while filming a solidarity report in front of the Amazon BHM1 facility. Amazon has hired off-duty cops to moonlight as security on the premises to harass union supporters and workers. If Bessemer workers are successful in their union drive, then they will join the ranks of the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union (RWDSU), which is an affiliate of the AFL-CIO.
Progressive Lawmakers Met With the White House to Discuss Action on Filibuster
       
Democrats have already passed two in the House, according to Insider, but it is extremely unlikely they’ll see the support they need in the Senate. Biden has gradually inched toward a more progressive outlook on the filibuster, but also expressed hesitations about scrapping it entirely, stressing the need for incremental reform. Currently, the federal minimum wage sits at $7.25 per hour, a mandate that has not changed since 2009. There was a progressive push to raise the minimum wage as part of the newest coronavirus relief package, as Salon reported last month. “Progressives are a big part of our party and making sure their voices are heard here at the White House is a big part of my job,” Klain said in an interview.
In Louisiana, Activists May Be Winning a Battle Against Environmental Racism
       
Sharon Lavigne, a Welcome resident and co-founder of RISE St. James, a faith-based environmental justice group opposing Formosa, has testified before Congress and most recently the United Nations. At the United Nations, a panel of experts recently declared that environmental racism in Cancer Alley must come to an end. “Formosa is goliath, RISE St. James is David,” Lavigne said on Facebook Live after testifying before a UN environmental justice panel on Thursday. The legal challenges have also contributed to the delay, according to a statement emailed to Truthout by FG LA, the division of Formosa Plastics operating in Louisiana. Formosa is on the rocks in St. James Parish, but the company has not pulled out yet.
Corporate Media Biases Threaten the Passage of Landmark LGBTQ Protections
       
Intolerance on TelevisionCoverage of the Equality Act by major news organizations has been sparse and lacking in context. We examined television coverage of the Equality Act, from March 3, 2019, through March 4, 2021, using the Television News Archive. We found that MSNBC covered the Equality Act 40 percent more often than Fox News and 35 percent more frequently than CNN. Our analysis of the most popular articles about the Equality Act on social media exposes a thinly veiled version of this logic. But even calling out Greene’s misunderstanding of “the science” will not necessarily recenter attention on the Equality Act itself.
Biden Could Use One Law to Undo Some of Trump’s Legacy, But Time’s Running Out
       
There is one tool, however, that Biden and the Democratic Congress could use to undo the policies the Trump administration left behind. With a few exceptions, it applies to only those Trump administration policies finalized between Aug. 21, 2020, and Jan. 20, 2021. KHN is tracking health regulations, guidance and executive orders implemented during Trump’s term and whether those policies will continue under the Biden administration. But those changes are embedded within a much larger regulation required each year to keep the health law operating. Keith said one possible use would be on a last-minute Trump regulation known as the sunset rule.
Biden White House hosts AOC, progressive lawmakers to discuss filibuster reform
       
White House chief of staff Ron Klain met privately with a number of progressive lawmakers, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass. Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y. and Andy Levin, D-Mich, to discuss the filibuster and the minimum wage, signaling potential for a spirit of collaboration between the Biden administration and left-leaning Democrats. Although no deal on the filibuster was struck, Klain did reaffirm President Biden's commitment to enacting a $15 national minimum wage. Currently, the federal minimum wage sits at $7.25 per hour, a mandate that has not changed since 2009. There was a progressive push to raise the minimum wage as part of the newest coronavirus relief package , as Salon reported last month.

Fox News Hit With Massive Lawsuit Over Rigged Election Lies
       
Fox News is facing another massive lawsuit over its conspiracy-addled 2020 election coverage. Now, a suit filed by Dominion Voting Systems, another election technology company, could bleed it of another another $1.6 billion. Smartmatic, one of the companies targeted with the conspiracies, filed a suit last month against Fox News and Fox Business Network, naming Bartiromo, Dobbs, and other hosts as defendants. Fox immediately moved to dismiss that suit, claiming it was simply covering Trump’s election claims—not promoting them. “Fox took a small flame,” the Dominion suit read, and “turned it into a forest fire” as “part of an orchestrated defamatory campaign” against the company.

6 shows that you can stream online if you love hip-hop, on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video
       
Gully Boy may have made it prevalent in India, but hip-hop as a genre had already made its mark online way before the Ranveer Singh-Alia Bhatt starrer was conceived. Hip-hop, also known as rap, originated in the late '70s, and has since evolved at an incredible pace. What started as an underground voice of the economically depressed and oft-discriminated-against is today a universal phenomenon. If you wish to better acquaint yourself with the evolution of the music genre, here are a few titles (OTT) streaming platforms that you can binge to better understand hip-hop.

Meet the host of India's first and only podcast for beer enthusiasts
       
Yet it’s no surprise that the brewing industry, both at home and internationally, continues to be male-dominated. But did you know that the first beer recipe known to be written, circa 1800, was for the Sumerian goddess of beer in Mesopotamia? One of the women at the forefront of this endeavour in India is Chatty Girija, host of the country’s first and only podcast around beer, Cheers Chatty, streaming on Spotify. The beer writer, podcaster, and influencer’s audio series “is a full-bodied tribute to beer” as well as the women making an impact on it.

29 Noughties Keira Knightley Looks To Make You Yearn For A Simpler Time
       
These days she’s typically top-to-toe in Chanel for her rare (even pre-pandemic) public appearances, but Keira Knightley took a more expansive approach to red-carpet dressing back in the aughts. The British actor had a love affair with the corset that extended beyond her period drama roles; dabbled in all things boho, specifically Matthew Williamson’s butterfly motif; and was photographed in some of the era’s cult dresses, Roland Mouret’s Galaxy and the Hervé Léger bandage dress included. When off-duty, the rising starlet lived in hip-grazing denim with low-slung belts – an aesthetic she famously deployed on the red carpet at a Pirates of the Caribbean premiere in 2003, when she teamed her boot-cut skinnies with a floaty white crop top that exposed her washboard abs. It was perhaps the ultimate example of that oh-so early millennium outfit formula: jeans and a going-out top. As the star turns 36, scroll down for more nostalgic red-carpet looks from the Oscar nominee and Chanel muse.

If Your Boss Could Do Your Job, You’re More Likely to Be Happy at Work
       
Our research suggests there’s truth behind this saying: bosses matter far more for employee job satisfaction than any other factor we measured. Hence we measured it in three different ways:Whether the supervisor could, if necessary, do the employee’s job. The benefit of having a highly competent boss is easily the largest positive influence on a typical worker’s level of job satisfaction. Moreover, we saw that when employees stayed in the same job but got a new boss, if the new boss was technically competent, the employees’ job satisfaction subsequently rose. Your job satisfaction is profoundly molded by your boss’s competence; and your own team’s job satisfaction levels depend on your competence.

Stream “Stephanie Daley,” a Bold and Insightful Film About Teen Pregnancy
       
One movie that I’d been impatient to see again, Hilary Brougher’s second feature, “Stephanie Daley,” from 2007, had not been available to stream until recently, as far as I could tell. “Stephanie Daley,” which I saw and wrote about enthusiastically at the time of its release, is well worth revisiting, both for its great artistic merits and even for its one major yet illuminating flaw. The incident is instantly sensationalized by local media and Stephanie becomes the target of derision and of hate. But “Stephanie Daley,” which runs only an hour and a half, turns out to be two movies in one. Stephanie Daley deserves to be the center of “Stephanie Daley”; she should have the film to herself.

Woman Found Slain in 1977 ID'd as Wife of Philadelphia Cop, Who Told Kids She'd Run Away
       
William Heiser, Sr., told his two children their mother had abandoned themWoman Found Slain in 1977 ID'd as Wife of Philadelphia Cop, Who Told Kids She'd Run AwayAfter four decades, authorities have identified the remains of a woman found slain in a drainage ditch near a wooded area of Townsend, Del. Marie Petry Heiser, a 50-year-old mother and homemaker, was never reported missing, so the slain Philadelphia woman's body hadn't been identified despite being discovered in 1977. Heiser, police said, was the wife of William Heiser, Sr., a member of the Philadelphia Police Department's Highway Patrol during the 1950s and early 1960s. "William Heiser, Sr., relocated to the area of South Daytona Beach Florida in the late 1970s and subsequently died in 2006" from cancer, the statement reads.

Georgia Law Kicks Off Partisan Battle Over Voting Rights
       
President Biden on Friday called Georgia’s new law an “attack on the Constitution” and said the Justice Department was “taking a look” at Republican voting efforts in the state, without offering any specifics. “This is Jim Crow in the 21st century, it must end,” Mr. Biden said, a day after Gov. Let the people vote.”Civil rights groups immediately challenged the Georgia law in federal court, backed by prominent Democratic voting rights lawyers. Several Black leaders described the legal skirmishes to come as an existential fight for representation, saying the law clearly puts a target on Black and brown voters. Protests against voting restrictions unfolded this week in state capitols like Austin, Texas, and Atlanta, and more lawsuits are expected.

Last month, an animated image of Nyan Cat, the popular meme of a rainbow-shooting feline made out of a Pop-Tart, sold for $660,000 in a blockchain sale. “It’s easy to look at NFTs and say, OK, this is Beanie Babies,” says Jill Carlson, a venture capitalist who invests in blockchain technology. She changed her mind recently after seeing the interest of artists who had established themselves independently of blockchain hype—people like Lemercier.

According to Nets star James Harden, the award has his name written all over it. When asked after the game whether or thought he belong in the MVP conversation, Harden's response was direct.

An Ally McBeal Revival Reportedly In Early Development
       
Why, we hadn’t thought of that name in years. It’s hard to describe the cultural impact of Ally McBeal’s signature screwball tone to someone who missed the Fox legal dramedy starring Calista Flockhart the first time around. Oh, also, the show had a dancing baby that gyrated to Blue Swede’s “Hooked on a Feeling” and served as a hallucinatory remind of Ally’s biological clock. It was one of the internet’s truly viral memes? You know what, you have to see it to really understand it.

Sharon Osbourne Exits The Talk After Racism Investigation
       
Photo: Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagicAfter CBS temporarily put The Talk on hiatus following Sharon Osbourne’s heated defense of Piers Morgan over accusations of racism earlier this month, the network announced Friday that Osbourne has opted not to return to the daytime talk show. “Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave The Talk,” CBS said in a statement, published by the Hollywood Reporter. “During this week’s hiatus, we are coordinating workshops, listening sessions and training about equity, inclusion and cultural awareness for the hosts, producers and crew.

While Eve and Rex are breaking up, Mark and Amber are making a love connection against all odds. Mark invites Amber over for a study date, but it gets derailed before it really even begins.

Vince McMahon Lawyers Claim Oliver Luck Flubbed Character Checks
       
Yet the combative relationship between former XFL commissioner Oliver Luck and the executive who fired him, WWE founder and Alpha Entertainment chairman Vince McMahon, lives on in a Connecticut federal courthouse. Alpha insists that Luck violated his contract in several ways, including in the January 2020 signing of former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway. As Alpha puts it, Luck knew Callaway would have been an ineligible player and yet signed him anyway. McMahon, the brief maintains, also forbid Luck from signing former Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders wide receiver Martavis Bryant. The brief also refers to an unnamed player whom McMahon allegedly ordered Luck to not sign on account of a sexual assault accusation.

Photo: Christina Koci Hernandez/San Francisco Chronicle by Getty ImagesAccording to her publisher, children’s author Beverly Cleary, born Beverly Atlee Bunn, passed away on Thursday at the age of 104 in Carmel, California. “We are saddened by the passing of Beverly Cleary, one of the most beloved children’s authors of all time,” president and publisher of HarperCollins Children’s Books Suzanne Murphy said in a statement Friday. Over the next 49 years, Cleary wrote over 40 books, mostly children’s novels, becoming a staple for a half century of young readers, and beyond. That’s what I wanted to read about when I was growing up,” Cleary told NPR’s Linda Wertheimer in a 1999 interview. And in my childhood, many years ago, children’s books seemed to be about English children, or pioneer children.

It makes a certain kind of sense that Bad Trip, Eric André’s entry into the Gonzo Comedy Hall of Fame (see: Jackass, Borat, Bad Grandpa), starts in Florida. Those “Florida Man” headlines are well-earned. And the “Florida Man” energy is strong in this one, right from the get-go: No sooner has the comedian appeared onscreen, rocking a mechanic’s jumpsuit and washing a BMW in a West Grove car wash, then something genuinely WTF happens. “Florida Man Loses Clothes, Flashes Customers in Bizarre Car Detailing Accident.” Normally, you can’t make this stuff up. duds, and you come out of Bad Trip with a serious appreciation for this trio’s chops and ability to go with the flow.
‘Trapped’ Review: Three Female-Centric Stories From the 2011 Egyptian Revolution
       
Ten years ago in January, the people of Egypt took to the streets to demand the fall of President Hosni Mubarak and his regime. That it struggles to do so is more a reflection of the prosaic nature of the filmmaking rather than the spirit of those involved. The final chapter, shot by legendary cameraman Zbigniew Rybczynski, is set in a down-market bathhouse in Historic Cairo. With each story, the people who initially feel trapped discover the links of commonality with people of different perspectives and socioeconomic backgrounds. Acting too is uneven, not helped by the stereotyped nature of the characters at the end, each clearly representatives of types long familiar to fans of Egyptian cinema.
We Asked Satanists What They Think of the New Lil Nas X Video
       
But perhaps its most prominent character is the Prince of Darkness himself: Satan, whom Lil Nas X seduces with a lap-dance in the video after riding a stripper pole to hell, then steals his horns. The video has received widespread acclaim on social media for its sumptuous, provocative imagery, as well as the expected condemnation from those on the right accusing Lil Nas X of indoctrinating innocent children into becoming….lap dancers? Does Lil Nas X’s flame-licking lap dance constitute little more than Satanic cultural appropriation? If he isn’t canceled by Republicans, will Lil Nas X be canceled by Satanists first? So there you have it: Lil Nas X has the Church of Satan’s stamp of approval.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson Asks $7 Million for Gwen Stefani’s Former Los Feliz Home
       
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, an accomplished stage-trained actor and five-time Emmy nominated star of the acclaimed mockumentary sitcom “Modern Family,” which ran for 11 seasons, from 2009 to 2020, and his husband, Justin Mikita, welcomed a son last year. All but invisible behind a verdant wall of foliage, the half-acre hillside property was acquired by pop star Gwen Stefani and her then husband, musician Gavin Rossdale, in 1998 for $1.375 million. After they spent a fortune to add a swimming pool, among other costly improvements, they sold it in 2007 for $4.8 million to TV writer/producer Mark Brazill (“The 70s Show,” “3rd Rock From the Sun”), who quickly flipped it in the fall of 2009 for close to $4 million — a heart-stopping $800 loss!— to artist Bill Nelson and Lärabar snack bar creator Lara Merriken. It was Nelson and Merriken who sold the house to the Ferguson-Mikitas who soon engaged to the services of “Will & Grace” set decorator and interior designer Peter Gurski to do up the house in a manner described in Architectural Digest in 2018 as “highly personal” with a prudently balanced mix of historical architectural details, classic Old Hollywood glamour, cheeky masculinity, and carefully curated kitch.

The Olympic Battle for Echo Park
       
In the shadow of Hollywood, conflicts continue between a community encampment of the unhoused in Los Angeles’s Echo Park and the LAPD. Members of both groups turned out in droves—alongside hundreds of supporters—at Echo Park Lake. The police crackdown at Echo Park Lake is a grim foretaste of what is likely to arise when the Olympics come to town. The day after the showdown at the park, Parriott helped organize a vigil outside the offices of O’Farrell in Echo Park. Reporters and legal observers were detained by the LAPD as a part of this “cleansing” of Echo Park.

New Racist Voter Suppression Law In Georgia Increases Urgency for Congress to Pass For the People Act
       
WASHINGTON - Yesterday, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and his Republican allies in the state legislatures passed sweeping voting restrictions in a blatant attempt to keep communities of color and new voters from participating in our democracy. NBC News broke down how the new law, which:Shortens the window to request absentee ballotsRequire mail-in voters to include their driver's license numbers or other documentation, instead of using signature verificationReduces early voting hours across the state and limits the use of ballot drop boxesProhibits people from providing food and water to voters waiting in lineThis latest effort by Republican state lawmakers to restrict voting rights must be met with immediate action from Congress—and the For the People Act (S. 1) provides popular, common-sense solutions that will combat this blatant voter suppression. In fact, S. 1 would blunt Georgia’s new voter restrictions by:Requiring at least 15 consecutive days of early votingEnsuring that early voting sites are open for at least 10 hours each dayRequiring states to allow any eligible voter to cast their ballots by mail in federal elections standardizing no-excuse absentee voting nationwideEstablishing automatic voter registration and same-day registration nationwideRequiring every state to create online systems where Americans can register to vote, update their registration information, and request their absentee ballotsProhibiting wrongful voter purges and committing Congress to passing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, which would re-establish pre-clearance requirements###

Sanders Pushing to Expand Medicare by Lowering Eligibility Age in Next Relief Package
       
"In the rescue plan, we were able to take a major step forward in lowering child poverty—very important. Bernie Sanders"We have to look at the structural long-term problems facing our people," Sanders told the outlet in an interview Friday. "In the rescue plan, we were able to take a major step forward in lowering child poverty—very important," Sanders added. Surveys have shown that the idea of lowering the Medicare eligibility age—which has been at 65 or older since the program's inception in 1965—is popular with the American public. Additionally, according to an analysis by the healthcare consulting firm Avalere, lowering the Medicare eligibility age to 60 could extend the program's coverage to as many as 23 million people.
Faith Groups Part of Human Rights Coalition Urging Biden to Ease Sanctions Amid Pandemic
       
"The regular U.S. use of economic sanctions has had a devastating humanitarian impact on communities, with women and girls often the hardest hit." "On top of it all, they are proven to undermine the work of changemakers struggling for progress within sanctioned countries. "By raising food and fuel prices, weakening water infrastructure, and making medical equipment and care harder to access, economic sanctions only deepen these burdens." Calls for sanctions relief have likewise grown louder in Washington, with Democratic Senator Chris Murphy penning a letter urging the Biden administration to lift the ban on diesel swaps. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday sent their own letter urging Biden to "use the full force of our diplomatic and economic tools" in relations with Iran.
US Water Shutoff Moratorium May Have Prevented Nearly 500,000 Covid-19 Cases: Study
       
NEW: A report from @foodandwater & @Cornell found that a nationwide water shutoff moratorium might have prevented nearly 500K #COVID19 infections & 9K deaths. @POTUS needs to issue a national shutoff moratorium NOW. A nationwide water shutoff moratorium might have reduced Covid cases by 3.97% and Covid-related deaths by 5.51% in the 41 states without full coverage of a moratorium over this period. Extrapolating from model results, we estimated a nationwide water shutoff moratorium during the study period might have protected 480,715 people from Covid-19 infection and 9,052 people from death. "Congress must pass the WATER Act to invest in communities, promote climate resilience, and ensure public water for all."

—President Joe Biden"This is Jim Crow in the 21st century. It must end," Biden said in a lengthy statement about the Georgia law.

Big Oil's Embrace of Carbon Pricing Called PR Ploy to 'Avoid Real, Effective Climate Action'
       
"Nobody should fall for the oil industry's new PR ploy, which will do nothing to fight the climate emergency." CNBC noted that "the industry envisions changes to existing regulations following a carbon price policy endorsement." Think oil & gas industry embracing carbon pricing is a good thing? "This is yet another greenwashing tactic wielded by the fossil fuel industry to distract from their disproportionate responsibility for the climate crisis." In fact, fossil fuel corporations like Exxon, BP, Chevron, and ConocoPhillips must pay for the damage they've done to people and the planet."
Senate Dems Employ Obscure Law in Effort to Reverse Trump Rollback of Methane Emissions Standards
       
), and Angus King (I-Maine)—who caucuses with the Democrats—led a larger group of lawmakers Thursday in introducing a resolution of disapproval, under the Congressional Review Act (CRA), to reinstate Obama-era methane rules. Notably, such a resolution allows for Congress to take action while avoiding the filibuster in the Senate. The outlet noted that "it would be the first rollback of Trump environmental policy Democrats target with the CRA" and "would come as lawmakers are rapidly approaching the deadline to use the technique." Bolder action is urgently needed after four years of reckless Trump administration policies and feet-dragging by industry on climate," said Lauren Pagel, Earthworks policy director. This CRA is just one of many initiatives the Senate Democratic majority will undertake to address the climate crisis.
'What You're Doing Is Historical!' Bernie Sanders Rallies With Amazon Workers in Alabama
       
"There is no excuse for workers at Amazon not to have good wages, good benefits, and good working conditions." "Your message to people all over this country is stand up and fight back," asserted Sanders. Amazon worker Darryl Richardson, who launched the Alabama unionization effort, also addressed the rally. Bezos will step down as CEO later this year and be replaced by longtime Amazon Web Services chief Andy Jassy. What Amazon workers in Alabama are doing is historical.
In Quest of a Multi-Polar World
       
And you’ll have the whole ideal of Russia, China, and other countries being the ideal of not only Marx, but Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, Ricardo. And the American economy is all about extracting rent through the real estate sector, the financial sector, the health insurance sector, the monopolies and infrastructure sector. The free world was a world centrally planned by the American military and finance together. If there’s no European central bank to borrow, to pump euros into the world economy, then, only dollars will be left for central bank reserves. Well I wonder whether that’s going to be a model for what’s happening in the United States with the ethnic war here.
Rescuing Rich Investors in Poor Countries
       
The G20 is really the G7 – that is, the seven leading rich nations, the U.S, the U.K,, France, Germany, Japan, Canada, Italy – in disguise. The rich nations’ response to the catastrophe afflicting poor nations is the Debt Service Suspension Initiative (DSSI) — an offer for 77 “least developed countries” to suspend interest payments to official creditors (i.e. In other words, rich countries’ governments are not rescuing poor countries, they are rescuing rich investors in those poor countries.

As Myanmar Death Toll Tops 320, UN Expert Warns Crisis Will Worsen Without World's Help
       
"I fear the situation of human rights in Myanmar will further deteriorate as the junta increases the rate of murders, enforced disappearances, and torture." Khin's killing came the day after regime forces reportedly killed Tun Tun Aung, a 14-year-old boy, at his family's home, also in Mandalay. "The fact that so many children are being killed on an almost daily basis now shows a complete disregard for human life by security forces." "Member states have an opportunity to demonstrate this alternative, but the window in which this can be achieved is closing rapidly," he added. "I fear that the international community has only a short time remaining to act."
African origins of Caribbean music, Reggae, Calypso, Compas, and Zouk
       
In particular, during the movement to independence, calypso music would include common messages of freedom, anti-colonialism and empowerment of African descended people. After Trinidad and Tobago gained independence in 1962, calypso music continued to be used as an outlet for political commentary. The blend of African and European cultures has created popular dance music, music played on simple acoustic instruments. Another explanation is that at a recording session in 1959 produced by Coxsone Dodd, double bassist Cluett Johnson instructed guitarist Ranglin to "play like ska, ska, ska", although Ranglin has denied this, stating "Clue couldn't tell me what to play!" Derrick Morgan said: "Guitar and piano making a ska sound, like 'ska, ska".

It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world
       
Republicans bet everything to defeat President Obama’s health care reform plan — without ever offering a real alternative or working with Democrats to find common ground. They doubled-down again believing that voters would deny President Obama re-election and they could repeal the law. Now, the country will live under a health care law — for probably a generation or more — that could have been based on many Republican ideas had they simply negotiated. But since there is seemingly no chance of ever winning Republican support, Biden can safely just ignore them. It’s allowed Joe Biden — so far, at least — to be the most liberal president of the last half century.
Boycott the Masters
       
I wrote an email to the PGA of America that the PGA should immediately cancel the Masters Golf Tournament until such time as the Georgia republicans have a change of heart. I encourage all other golf enthusiasts to contact the PGA and echo these sentiments. If you’re not a golfer, consider contacting Coca-Cola, UPS, or Delta Airlines and indicate that you will be boycotting their products and services until positive change is witnessed. You might also indicate that you are contacting all folks in your friends and family circle and urging the same. There has to be a penalty, both financial and moral, if we are going to make progress.
Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day: Jim Lucas- 2021 Update
       
Indiana state legislator Jim Lucas has caused outrage with inflammatory posts, and he's not just been enabled by his party to keep getting worse, but now he's even attacking his own party on social media... for Covid-19 safety. In the six years he’s been in office, he has become synonymous in the Hoosier State with conservative douchebaggery.

We’re Not Done Fighting for California’s Frontline Communities
       
The climate crisis has already come to Kern County. Kern residents experience the “ slow violence ” of the fossil fuel industry every day, not just during wildfire season. About 80% of California’s oil and gas production happens in Kern County. Fossil fuel pollution affects nearly every corner of Kern County, but some residents experience more of its harms. People of color, especially those in low-income communities, are disproportionately likely to live near oil and gas wells and their toxic emissions.
AZ SoS Decries 'Dangerous, Unprecedented' GOP Schemes to Roll Back Voting Rights: 'BradCast' 3
       
Unfortunately, Nicole got hit pretty hard after her second COVID vaccine shot, so she's been a bit under the weather (but getting much better!). However, she was kind enough to share the interview with us anyway so we could share it with you on today's program. The Grand Canyon State also elected Democrat Mark Kelly for the U.S. Senate last November. On today's program, Hobbs speaks to similar efforts now under way by Arizona's GOP state lawmakers to roll back voting rights, including the state's popular mail-in voting options, despite last year's "very successful" election...or, perhaps, because of it. Hobbs describes the measures being pushed by state Republicans as "unprecedented" and "really dangerous in terms of voting rights, not just in Arizona but across the country."
Biden Doubles Vaccination Goal and It Looks Achievable
       
Having reached 100 million vaccinations in just 59 days in office, Joe Biden is now calling for 200 million vaccinations in his first 100 days, which will be April 30. The Center for Disease Control reports 136.7 million total vaccinations for US residents for yesterday, so reaching the goal will require about 83.3 million vaccinations in the 36 remaining days. We are currently averaging about 2.5 million vaccinations per day and Biden’s goal will require 2.3 million a day. The company had forecast delivery of 20 million doses by March 31. Today and tomorrow’s deliveries may well add 5.5 million bringing us to 210 million doses.

Olbermann vs Apartheid Georgia
       
Happy Friday…Page notes from video:Boycotting Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola and other Georgia-based companies comes later. But the first step to protest Georgia's 21st Century Jim Crow voting laws must be taken in sports, specifically by baseball. It's Jackie Robinson Day - but if the owners will not respond to Georgia's racism by moving the game elsewhere, the players must boycott the Robinson celebrations. Celebrating integration while a state acts to disenfranchise its residents of color is obviously hypocritical and humiliating, but it's worse: Jackie Robinson was BORN in Georgia. He would find nothing to celebrate today, or in July, or on April 15.
Two proposals to advance voting rights
       
The Democratic bill to advance voting rights is facing grim prospects in the Senate. If it doesn’t, the second addition would be the creation of a national ID system that doesn’t rely on voluntary action on the part of citizens. We’ll deliberately hurt ourselves if you’ll go along with our voting rights bill!” They’ll eat it up. India has a national ID system that reaches most of its population, and it cost them about $1 per citizen. So instead of butting heads with Republicans over voting rights, why not offer them a few inducements?

A SURVIVOR MAKES HIS MARK
       
To the point that port of Thessaloniki was even closed on Saturday or Shabbat, the Jewish day when religion forbids working. But on September 2, 1939, with the outbreak of World War II, this peaceful community would one day feel the terror of the Nazis. Of the 60,000 Jews in Thessaloniki, around 50,000 were exterminated at the Birkenau concentration camp. He changed his first name Abraham to Albert and met a Jewish woman named Miriam who then became his wife. From there, the road was short for little Abraham (Albert) to rise through the ranks to become Chief Operation Officer before obtaining his appointment as CEO of the company in 2019.

Trump BFF and MyPillow Guy Mike Lindell recently announced he’s rolling out a new social media outlet—“Frank.”MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, the Trump ally who pushed voter-fraud conspiracy theories, has just offered a first glimpse at his new social-media site. Frank is set to launch fully in 10 to 14 days, Lindell told "The Eric Metaxas Radio Show" on Tuesday. Lindell has been secretly creating his own social-media platform over the past four years, he said earlier this month.

Watch Beto O'Rourke Testify Against GOP Voter Suppression Bills On The Texas Senate Floor
       
Received this e-mail from former presidential candidate, Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (D. TX) organization, Powered By People:Just this week, our team found out that there were two voter suppression bills — HB6 in the Texas State House, SB7 in the Texas State Senate — that were going to be introduced. So, on Wednesday, Beto drove over eight hours from El Paso to Austin to testify against these bills via public comment. We expected that he was going to be able to take to the floor of the State Capitol to testify against HB6. Today, the State Senate took public comment for SB7 — and Beto, along with others, were able to testify against this dangerous and harmful bill. Then, chip in to help us organize and fight back against these dangerous bills.
Georgia Needs the Movie Industry and the NCAA

Voting Rights Roundup: GOP passes Georgia's most far-reaching voting restriction law since Jim Crow
       
It's unclear just how effectively these provisions will deter Black voters and Democrats from voting as Republicans undoubtedly intend. Voting Access Expansions? Delaware: State Senate Democrats have passed a bill in a committee to adopt automatic voter registration. Democratic legislators also passed another bill that sets minimum requirements for absentee ballot drop box locations. Northam has until Wednesday to take action on the remaining voting bills passed in the most recent legislative session. ? West Virginia: State Senate Republicans have passed a bill with almost all Democrats voting against it that would enact major new restrictions on voting.
Biden blasts Republicans' voter suppression, while Manchin gives credence to their Big Lie
       
He once again endorsed the talking filibuster, saying that it would force senators "to stand there and talk and talk and talk and talk until you collapse" if they wanted to opposed a bill. The showdown over the filibuster is coming sooner rather than later and it will likely be over voting rights. And this Senate will take action to protect the voting rights of tens of millions of Americans. Meanwhile, self-declared king Sen. Joe Manchin has issued his decree on what he would find acceptable in a law, proving that bipartisanship is more important to him than protecting voting rights. He ignores most of the major and critical provisions to restore democracy including gerrymandering reform, voter registration expansion and improvements, vote-by-mail access, voter purge prevention—all the things that Republicans have attacked in their voter suppression efforts.
Has inflation been hiding in plain sight?
       
It was the notion that higher prices led workers to demand higher wages which led to higher prices etc. Inflation is what happens when the supply of money in circulation grows more rapidly than the supply of goods and services. And it’s based on the money supply, not workers’ demanding fair wages. The reason the money is hiding in plain sight in the stock market is because of growing inequality. And if the stock market goes down, well, so be it.
GOP Senator Marsha Blackburn flashes congressional pin after getting pulled over; gets let go
       
After rushing out of the Senate after a vote, she had an aide take her to the airport. Apparently, the car was fast and/or erratic enough to catch the attention of the Capitol Police, which pulled the car over. Republicans like Blackburn don’t want to be in office to serve, they want to be in office for the power the office bestows. x I stand with Georgia State Rep. Park Cannon (@Cannonfor58), who was arrested and CHARGED WITH A FELONY for ... for what? Kemp’s office door* as she tried to observe the cowardly closed-door signing ceremony for the voter suppression law.
My response to the excellent diary "Don't let your guard down."

If we don’t believe our chances are good in doing so, then when will they ever be good?

Other research suggests that it was instead the lax approach to the pandemic that led to Trump’s eventual defeat.

Buttigieg says taxing drivers by the mile “shows a lot of promise” and could fund infrastructure
       
Pete Buttigieg floated the idea for a mileage based tax when asked by a reporter which sparked a lot of debate online. Some supported the idea as a good way to transition away traveling in cars and vehicles in favor of public transportation. Many where concerned that it could disproportionately hurt those in rural areas who have trouble affording to travel without having any public transportation available. This has been a complicated and decisive issue for decades that will likely need to be addressed sooner rather than later. x Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg says taxing drivers by the mile “shows a lot of promise” and could be a way to fund a big infrastructure overhaul.

Fox News faces second billion-dollar defamation lawsuit filed by voting systems company
       
“Fox wanted to continue to protect its broadcast ratings, catering to an audience deeply loyal to President Trump.”Dominion's filing against Fox follows other defamation suits it already filed against Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and MyPillow guy Mike Lindell. In actuality, multiple polls have shown the vast majority of Republicans believe the election was stolen from Trump. Fox News, of course, deemed Powell’s claims credible enough to air to many millions of its viewers. “Viewers began fleeing Fox in favor of media outlets endorsing the lie that massive fraud caused President Trump to lose the election,” the company said in the lawsuit. “They saw Fox as insufficiently supportive of President Trump ...

MN court fines right-wing attorney $10,000 for fraud in 2020 contest lawsuit against Rep. Ilhan Omar
       
“As a lay person, an affidavit doesn’t mean anything.” Through her questioning, Shogren Smith explained to Braun that contesting an election in Minnesota means filing a lawsuit. At the end of the hearing, the court ordered the three contestants’ names removed from the lawsuit and fined Smith ten thousand dollars. (Prior to the hearing, Smith and other unnamed parties had already paid the ~$4,000 judgment that Braun and the other contestants had been hit with at the end of the lawsuit.) From one perspective, all this is shocking: bizarre behavior by a licensed attorney leading to a stunning fine from a Minnesota district court. I won’t weep for Susan Shogren Smith.
MI GOP Chair calls Whitmer, Nessel, Benson "Three Witches," talks about assassinating officials.
       
Last month Michigan GOP Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey called the January 6th Trump Insurrection a "hoax" and claimed he "spanked" Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Weiser responded that the party is focused on beating the "three witches" in 2022, referring to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson — the three statewide Democratic leaders who are up for re-election next year. Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson "witches" and referenced calling elected women "witches" and the GOP needs to make sure "they are ready for the burning at the stake." To top it off, the MI GOP is trying to damage the democratic process by using a loophole in the state constitution to ram through massive voter suppression bills:

House Democrats introduce legislation to block DeJoy's Postal Service sabotage
       
The Postal Service, he reminds us, is a public service and "Changes to its universal service guarantee must go through a process that is designed to protect the public interest." They're now in the federal employees benefits plan, where all that pre-funding money has been going. DeJoy's planned price hikes and service cuts are getting panned by consumer groups—including business groups that rely on the mail. "Apart from price increases and service reductions, there is little about mail in the plan at all. The Postal Service is too critical an institution to let this malfeasance continue.
FOX News Is Going to Have a Hard Time Overcoming the OVERWHELMING Evidence in the Dominion Lawsuit
       
The bill is coming due for Fox News for having recklessly, repeatedly, and maliciously spread flagrant falsehoods to support Donald Trump's Big Lie over election fraud. Dominion Voting Systems has just announced that they are suing Fox for defamation to the tune of $1.6 billion. And Fox News has also been sued by Smartmatic, a voting software services company that alleges similar defamation in Fox's election reporting. Fox News is going to have a hard time defending itself from these lawsuits. There is an abundance of evidence that supports the claims, and most of it consists of video from Fox News itself.

Do NOT let your guard down
       
Yes, we can see the light at the end of the covid-19 tunnel but for the sake of you, your family & perfect strangers around you — do NOT let your guard down yet. Last week, I was at a rare in person meeting for a special project I am on. !” but being new to the group I didn’t want to be seen as a trouble maker. And the one time I let my guard down and didn’t stand up for myself & those around me, we could all be screwed. However, that doesn’t make the risk zero and now I’m going through a hellscape of “what if” scenarios.
In 1946, Maceo Snipes was lynched for voting in Georgia. Is this the America that's 'great again?'
       
[5] The day after Snipes voted, four white men arrived in a pick-up truck outside of his grandfather’s farmhouse, where Snipes and his mother Lula were having dinner. The men, rumored to be members of the local Klan chapter, called for Snipes, who came outside to meet them. During their encounter outside the house, Edward Williamson, who sometimes went by the name of Edward Cooper, shot Snipes in the back. Over the last few days I’ve read a lot of pieces about this—including some fairly offensive ones implying Democrats and Republicans are engaging in a “game.” Voting is not a game. We want to do everything we can to make America great as soon as we can.
