The company’s print archive is the place the former lawyer’s mind wanders to in daydreams; it is her version of heaven. “To me, Laura Ashley embodies an unpretentious beauty. The darker side to the joyfully democratic Laura Ashley aesthetic that influenced the cultural psyche in the ’80s chimes with her self-professed weirdness.

How a woman started a condom company in India
For starters, there was probably just one other female-led condom brand in India (Bleü by Komal Baldwa, launched in 2019), so there weren’t many notes to follow. Good at researching and studying, Chawla then studied (self-taught) and started working as a buyer psychologist, researching B2C e-commerce brands. The rubber for Salad condoms is sourced from 100 per cent sustainable, fair trade rainforests in Kerala (and their packaging is recycled and recyclable). Condoms already have a low adoption rate, to get a new female condom brand accepted would be a much bigger mountain to climb. The company is working with sex educators to build workshops, modules and a curriculum.

Facebook’s internal documents show how to make social media safer for teens
That’s important because many teens, especially girls, spend large amounts of time on social media. Comparatively, among girls who used social media less than one hour a day, only 15% were depressed. A 1998 law called the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule already sets the age minimum for social media accounts at 13. More stringent regulation would help with another issue teens know all too well: the unwritten mandate to use social media or be left out. If age limits were enforced, the peer pressure of being on social media would vanish; no or few classmates would be there.

UX design has a dirty secret
The terms “user experience,” “UX,” and “user-centered design” have become staples of corporate vocabulary. But when you dig beyond the surface of the many projects touting themselves as beacons of user-centricity, it seems there are almost more projects branding themselves as user-centered design than there are projects that are actually user-centered design. When executives adopt the term “user experience,” their teams aren’t necessarily empowered to do all the work that user experience design entails. Any attempt to further define the scope of our practice devolves into debates over whether that includes product design, digital design, interaction design, service design, and so on. Much like design, design advocacy requires empathy and collaboration.
These homeowners volunteer their backyards for tiny housing for homeless neighbors
When a homeowner applies to participate, Facing Homelessness evaluates the yard to see if it meets the city’s permitting requirements for a backyard home, and then interviews the homeowners. advertisementAgencies refer unhoused people who they believe would be a good fit for the program, and Facing Homelessness serves as a matchmaker. There’s no expectation that someone living in one of the tiny homes will have to continue to search for other housing. “It’s important to note that we see this as long-term housing,” says Jennifer Tee, deputy director of Facing Homelessness. advertisementThe project’s initial dwellings were built through volunteer labor in participants’ backyards, but because contractors had busy schedules, the process took months.
Want to Save on Taxes? Consider a Divorce!
While there are many tax changes, the most notable include raising income and capital gains tax rates on high earners – especially married couples. Wedded individuals will see the most dramatic tax squeeze, so as a result, getting a divorce could save high-earning couples thousands of dollars or more in taxes. This will create a significant tax bite for married couples, making divorce more financially appealing now. To save on taxes, will financial advisers recommend couples increase savings for their children’s college education, max out their work 401(k)s … and get a divorce? Kamens shares that “Revenue Ruling 76-253 states that the IRA will disregard a divorce obtained solely to save money on taxes.

Marketing Mistakes Made by CBD Brands (And How to Avoid Them)
Rarely do we have an opportunity to watch an entire multi-billion-dollar industry take shape before our eyes, with every mistake on full display. That’s one of the great things about participating in the CBD industry: everything is so new. To say that there’s been a lot of mid-course correction in CBD marketing would be a nice way of putting it.
The Brics never lived up to their promise – but is now the time to buy?
Hopes for emerging economies and their markets were high when Goldman Sachs first published “the Brics dream” in 2001. Meanwhile, emerging markets account for just 11.6% of the MSCI All Countries World index, which covers 85% of global investable equities. Part of the reason is that less economic activity is represented by stockmarkets in emerging economies than in developed ones. Developed market companies have a much larger presence in emerging economies than vice versa. But a key reason for their markets lagging is simply that emerging economies have not lived up to the promise of 15 years ago.
How Advertising Holding Companies Are Attracting Talent
The pandemic remains one of the great disruptors the advertising industry has ever dealt with. Aside from throwing the global economy for a loop, it sped up the rate of ecommerce adoption, launched Zoom and other video conferencing apps to the top of the technology food chain and, most significantly, it altered the employment habits of agencies and staff around the world.

Is it right or productive to watch workers?
Where monitoring software had once been a relatively small market, populated by benign-sounding products like Hubstaff, ActivTrak, Workpuls, BeeBole, and Time Doctor, it’s grown. Concrete numbers are difficult to come by, but, according to analysis from Top10VPN released in August, US demand for employee surveillance software is up 58% since 2020. Since then, employee monitoring software has remained a booming business. For one thing, remote workers are already more productive, monitoring or no. In a 2011 study, computer monitoring that employees felt violated their privacy increased employees’ destructive behavior.
How Harley Davidson Revs Its Brand
But some Harley dealers say they could easily sell twice as many bikes as they now get. Dressed in black leather and beret, Mr. Davidson, now the 64-year-old head of the design department, took to the road and met with Harley customers, listening to their comments. Extend The Brand: Mr. Fessler realized that legions of Harley riders in black leather jackets and black T-shirts also hurt the company's image. Beyond that, Harley can always count on the staying power of its brand, and on customers like Mr. Conrades. Harley employees, like those in every great marketing company, take personal responsibility for maintaining the luster of the brand.
Putting artificial intelligence at the heart of health care — with help from MIT
Artificial intelligence is transforming industries around the world — and health care is no exception. Her clinical research interests include cardiovascular disease prevention, women's heart health, cardiovascular health disparities, and the use of digital tools in cardiovascular disease management. Adedinsewo’s interest in AI emerged toward the end of her cardiology fellowship, when she began learning about its potential to transform the field of health care. “I started to wonder how we could leverage AI tools in my field to enhance health equity and alleviate cardiovascular care disparities,” she says. “There are so many areas of health care that can benefit from AI,” Barzilay says.
Three dividend stocks from the dynamic Asia/Pacific region
Asia is the fastest-growing region in the world and over the last decade its companies have grown profits at a faster pace than any other region’s. However, it is still surprising that the growth and resilience of dividends in Asia is not celebrated in the same way. This is an incredible outcome in a year where global pre-tax profits slumped by 23%, compared with only 4% in Asia. Ignoring income in Asia is to ignore the most exciting region globally for potential upside in dividends. It is uniquely placed to capture growth opportunities in many of the investment buzzwords of today: infrastructure, commodities, renewables, and technology.
Hey Parler, Nashville Isn’t Turning Red - The New York Times
Or maybe just the place where bridesmaids come to get drunk in the street. A midsize city on its way to becoming a big city can be all these things at once, of course, especially if it is a midsize city that is growing deliberately, in ways that do not displace its low-income residents or its work force. Especially if it is a midsize city that is investing in its public schools and building out its infrastructure to accommodate its meteoric growth. The truth is that high-profile members of the far right have been moving to Middle Tennessee since long before Parler announced its impending relocation. “Are you from Nashville?” the first child asked.

Paula Badosa Outlasts Victoria Azarenka to Win Indian Wells
INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — In its usual March dates, the BNP Paribas Open has been a launching pad for major talent in recent years. Naomi Osaka won the title in 2018 and then won the U.S. Open by upsetting Serena Williams in the final.

Covid Live Updates: As Colder Weather Sets In, Cases Rise in Northernmost U.S. States
Credit... Emily Elconin/ReutersEven as the Delta-variant-driven virus wave is receding in much of the United States, many counties across the country’s northernmost regions are experiencing rising cases as colder weather arrives. The top five states in new daily cases per capita are led by Alaska, which is logging the highest daily average: 125 cases per 100,000 people, according to a New York Times database. The next four states, with at least 67 cases per 100,000 people, are Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and Idaho. Cases are at least trending downward or holding steady in those states. Cases have been high in Michigan’s school-aged children, especially in districts that do not have mask mandates, according to Dr. Natasha Bagdasarian, the state’s chief medical executive.
Opinion | Trump Missed the Part About No Do-Overs
Bret: It would be nice to think that his obsession with 2020 is solely a function of his personal insecurities. Within the Republican Party, he’s making the stolen-election fantasy a litmus test, which Republican politicians defy at the peril of either being primaried by a Trump toady or losing vital Trump voters in close elections. At the national level, he’s creating a new “stab-in-the-back” myth to undermine the legitimacy of democracy itself. He was the U.K.’s Labour prime minister during the “Winter of Discontent,” when the country seemed to be perpetually on strike. Bret: I still think the most pro-worker thing the White House can do is get the infrastructure bill passed.
The Stock Market’s Gains Could Be Spread More Fairly - The New York Times
The technology and internet boom spurred a wave of day-traders and investment mania that now seems quaint. And even in those heady days, forecasting a near-quadrupling of the index appeared naïve at best and ridiculous at worst. While the trend has been up and up, the past two decades have been anything but smooth for stocks. Through the financial crisis and recessions of the past 20 years, along with periodic selling bouts, prices have oscillated wildly. Proof that financial markets exist in an alternate universe of capitalism, ever-expanding as the prospects for so many millions continue shrinking?
Washington Hears Echoes of the ’50s and Worries: Is This a Cold War With China?
But his actions so far look increasingly like those in a world of competitive coexistence, a bit edgier than the “peaceful coexistence” that the Soviet leader Nikita S. Khrushchev used to characterize the old Cold War. The Berlin Wall not only delineated a sharp line between spheres of influence, freedom and authoritarian control, it stopped most communications and trade. The year it fell, 1989, the United States exported $4.3 billion in goods to the Soviets and imported $709 million, an inconsequential blip for both economies. And yet, even through a pandemic and threats of “decoupling,” the United States exported $124 billion in goods to China last year and imported $434 billion. That made China the largest supplier of goods to the United States, and the third largest consumer of its exports, after Canada and Mexico.

Biden’s Plans Raise Questions About What U.S. Can Afford Not to Do
Many Democrats fear the United States cannot afford to wait to curb climate change, help more women enter the work force and invest in feeding and educating its most vulnerable children. In their view, failing to invest in those issues means the country risks incurring painful costs that will slow economic growth. “We can’t afford not to do these kinds of investments,” David Kamin, a deputy director of the White House National Economic Council, said in an interview. Mr. Manchin says he fears too much additional spending would feed rising inflation, which could push up borrowing costs and make it harder for the country to manage its budget deficit. Mr. Biden says his proposals would help fight inflation by reducing the cost of child care, housing, education and more.

He hit his approach over the green in the playoff and chipped to a foot before Janzen rolled in the winner.
Casey Martin Has Right Leg Amputated Due to Rare Circulatory Disease
Martin, the Oregon golf coach who successfully sued the PGA Tour for the right to use a cart because of a rare circulatory disease, had his right leg amputated in what he told Golf Digest was always going to be “my destiny.”Casey Martin and Tiger Woods play a practice round at the 2012 U.S. Open. Martin suffered from Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome, which restricted circulation in the lower portion of his right leg and made it virtually impossible for him to walk 18 holes. He still managed to practice and play well enough to earn a PGA Tour card for the 2000 season. Martin, a teammate of Tiger Woods on Stanford’s national championship team, has been the head golf coach at Oregon since 2006. “In many ways I exceeded what my doctors told me as a kid,” Martin told Golf Digest two weeks ago.

With Hope Waning, Who Can the Dolphins Blame?
Hope, even in small doses, is better than condemning yourself to a situation that was always going to be middling at best. If you’re the owner of the Dolphins, how do you factor last year’s 10-win season into the equation against what is happening now? Or do you blame this particular (relative when comparing Tagovailoa to Herbert) failure on factors outside of the coach’s control? He still seems like a coach who has command of a team that has followed him through some strange highs and lows. And that, regardless of the glimmers of hope, is the most damning part of where Miami finds itself right now.
New England Patriots show break-out potential in OT loss to Dallas Cowboys
We’re still, as a collective football society, getting used to the fact that the Patriots are no longer The Patriots. They are going to play a boring, guard-railed, hyper-conservative brand of football. They are going to lose games, like they did Sunday to the 5-1 Cowboys, that they would have won a few years ago. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick watches a play against the Dallas Cowboys during the second half at Gillette Stadium. When a team is perfect and methodical, we’ll always reflexively compare them to the Patriots, which means that this is not, by definition, a Patriots team.
WNBA Finals: Kahleah Copper, Chicago Sky seal first championship over Mercury
CHICAGO — For four bruising games, Sky forward Kahleah Copper was in perpetual motion. Seconds later as the final buzzer sounded with the scoreline showing Sky 80, Mercury 74, Copper, not surprisingly, accelerated again. “When something’s not going, she has other aspects that she brings to the game,” Chicago forward Candace Parker said pregame. It’s her effort.”For much of Sunday's contest it appeared as if the Mercury were going to send the series back to Phoenix. “For every off shooting game that she has, the next game is potentially going to be an explosive game,” Sky coach James Wade said.
New York Giants: Gettleman should sell off Barkley, players before trade deadline
If the promise of Joe Judge were real, the Giants wouldn’t be losing back-to-back games by 24 and 27 points, respectively. If Barkley is cleared to play by the time the Nov. 2 trade deadline, they should get what they can, which may still amount to more than a compensatory selection. Gettleman became a symbol of antiquated football decision making, when really, he may just have suffered from a public speaking perspective. The latter of which seems to suit Gettleman better. He bet big on large, powerful players at a time when NFL defenses were vulnerably thin and undersized.
Ed Orgeron: Inside coach's swift LSU football collapse, exit
When Tom Herman chose to coach Texas and not LSU, Orgeron, originally from about 100 miles south of Baton Rouge, landed his dream job. A record-tying 14 LSU players were selected in the draft, five of them in the first round. Since the completion of that season, LSU has gone 9–8, and the program’s two long-standing pillars—a strong, feisty defense and a lethal rushing attack—have cratered. “I mean, what are you supposed to say?” The friend acknowledges that “it all went downhill from there.”A couple of weeks later, LSU players staged their march. From a statistical standpoint, it was the worst defensive year in LSU football history.
Braves-Dodgers: Atlanta walks off again on Eddie Rosario single to take 2-0 NLCS lead
For the second straight night, the Braves and Dodgers appeared destined to head into extra innings. And for the second straight night, Atlanta delivered a clutch hit when it mattered most. Eddie Rosario drove a two-out single off of Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen that scored Dansby Swanson, as the Braves notched a walk-off win for the second consecutive game to take a 2-0 NLCS lead over the defending champs. The Dodgers jumped to a 2-0 lead two batters into the game thanks to a two-run homer by shortstop Corey Seager. The Braves had a 2-0 series lead over Los Angeles in last year's NLCS and eventually held a 3-1 series lead before the Dodgers rattled off three wins in a row to advance to the World Series.
MLB to pay for housing for minor leaguers in 2022
League owners have unanimously approved a plan that would have teams provide housing for all minor league players across all levels, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan. "This is a historic victory for minor league baseball players," Harry Marino, the executive director of Advocates of Minor Leaguers, told ESPN. Minor league players saw weekly minimum salary increases at each level this year. "Most Minor Leaguers make less than $15,000 per year and won't receive their next paycheck until April," Marino said. MLB cut 42 minor league affiliates last year with the goal of improving conditions for minor leaguers and increase pay.
Cam Newton: Former MVP reveals he's gotten COVID-19 vaccine, still wants to play
It's been nearly seven weeks since Cam Newton was released by the Patriots just before the start of the regular season. On Sunday, the former league MVP addressed the future of his career, asserting he still aims to play in the NFL. “Hell yea, I want to still play football," Newton said in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel. Following Newton's release, Patriots coach Bill Belichick denied that the decision had anything to do with Newton's vaccination status. Newton started 15 games for the Patriots last season, missing a Week 4 matchup with the Chiefs after testing positive for COVID-19.
Rory McIlroy Wins CJ Cup in Las Vegas for 20th Career PGA Tour Victory
Rory McIlroy, 32, is the 39th player to win at least 20 times on the PGA Tour, and it’s his fifth straight PGA Tour season with at least one win. LAS VEGAS — Rory McIlroy capped off a big weekend in Las Vegas on Sunday by surging past Rickie Fowler and holding off Collin Morikawa to win the CJ Cup at Summit for his 20th PGA Tour title. McIlroy is the 39th player to win at least 20 times on the PGA Tour, and it’s his fifth straight PGA Tour season with at least one win. It was similar to his first win on the PGA Tour in 2010 at Quail Hollow. McIlroy and Fowler in the final group were tied at 22 under going to the back when Fowler made another mistake.
Eddie Rosario, Braves sneak by Dodgers to take 2–0 series lead in NLCS
ATLANTA — The Braves barely won Game 2 of the National League Championship Series on Sunday. Then, on second baseman Ozzie Albies’s single to short right field, Rosario froze briefly to make sure the ball fell in. So when Dodgers second baseman Trea Turner opened the top of the ninth by taking perhaps his best swing of the month, most everyone in navy blue began to mourn. With two outs and shortstop Dansby Swanson on second, the Dodgers brought in closer Kenley Jansen to face Rosario. The Braves barely won Game 2.

Marks and Spencers Cat-Proof Planter Review 2021
When we first started populating our home with potted plants, more than one met its end at the paws of our young cat, Curare. Then it occurred to me: My cat can’t knock something over if it’s too heavy to knock over. But most important, when Curare strutted around my desk, fluffy tail and butt knocking into the planter, it didn’t move at all. I’m pleased to say that the planter can stand up as well to two cats as it can to one. As for the rubber plant that sits in our M&S planter, it’s not toxic enough to be fatal, but it’s not completely benign either.

However, instead, we are circling the drain, and Robyn’s satin hats are still taking up real estate in her mom’s garage.

Can Joe kill Theo now that he just pinky-swore never to do a bad thing ever again?? Joe tells Theo that Love fooled everyone, then gets him to a hospital. Love is here for some girl talk: “Joe is cheating.” Sherry’s INSTANT response is: “Love, kill him!” Joe was abusive, Sherry rationalizes. So the wonderfully tense question becomes: How does Love plan to kill Joe? Love cannot believe that Joe was off killing for some OTHER woman while Love (thinks) she killed a TEENAGER for him.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker Are Engaged
Photo: Jason Kempin/Getty ImagesRight after their tethers (Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly) splashed their twisted fairy tale love across the pages of British GQ, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker upped the ante by getting engaged. Barker even conquered his fear of flying with Kourt by his side, caught by paps boarding a private plane for Cabo in August. Barker had allegedly not flown since surviving a 2008 plane crash that killed four of six passengers. Barker was back on SNL last night, playing drums for Young Thug. Shortly thereafter, the pair must have flown to Montecito, because that’s where TMZ has video of Barker’s lavish, beachside proposal.

Plus, RHOSLC is a filler episode this week? Well, the joke’s on all of us because this episode is basically the entire thing I just explained. At aerial fitness, Whitney practices her confessional one-liners, and Lisa drops an aside that she hasn’t worked out in nine years. He isn’t comfortable talking about his feelings to this day, and Jennie doesn’t want to go through more pregnancies to try and heal his trauma.
Sex Story: The Woman With a Long Distance Boyfriend
New York’s Sex Diaries series asks anonymous city dwellers to record a week in their sex lives — with comic, tragic, often sexy, and always revealing results. I know I’m hot and successful and that he knows he’s insanely lucky to be with me. I also know that I go crazy when I’m not having sex on a regular basis. It’s annoying but something I’ve come to accept. I ask him if everything is okay, and he says yes, but I can tell he’s lying.
SNL: Watch Rami Malek Demand Treats from Please Don’t Destroy
Rami Malek has been a brave little boy. Rami plays himself, chatting with the boys of Please Don’t Destroy on Thursday night of his hosting week. Malek explains that if he doesn’t get enough treats, he’s going to be on bad behavior. If you want to see Rami Malek fully inhabit the physicality of a cat that wants attention, or for Martin Herlihy to threaten an Oscar winner with gun violence, this is the sketch for you. October 16’s SNL saw Malek performing several weird lil guy performances: from a weird bug, to a weird lil dancer.

Like a phoenix arising from the ashes, Desus Nice and the Kid Mero are back from vacation. They thought it couldn’t be done, but they did it! In their first warp-up seg from fall 2021, the Bodega Boys discussed Drake’s Degrassi past, their collaboration with City Harvest to fill free fridges across NYC, and whether J. Desus and Mero discussed the rumor that Drake allegedly threatened to quit Degrassi: The Next Generation unless they got his character out of that wheelchair. Apparently, feelings weren’t sore enough to prevent that Degrassi reunion music video.
Chloé Attains B Corp Certification
Propelled partly by the eco expertise of its creative director Gabriela Hearst, Chloé has become the first luxury fashion house in Europe to achieve B Corp status. Bellini had indicated that Chloé was seeking B Corp certification last November when he disclosed to WWD that he was retooling the brand’s business model to one that is purpose-driven, community-based and accountable, in addition to being highly creative. With this certification, Chloé joins companies like Vestiaire Collective, Patagonia, Allbirds, Eileen Fisher, Outland Denim and Toms. The B Corp community grew by 25 percent in 2020.

Dana H. Is Harrowing and Unmissable
Deirdre O’Connell in Dana H. Photo: Chad BatkaSome small productions work best in the spaces where they were built. Not so with Dana H. though, the unlikely crown jewel in this bizarre Broadway season. The theatrical arrangement of Dana H. is simple: The actor Deirdre O’Connell sits in a chair facing the audience, lip-syncing to an interview conducted with Dana Higginbotham, the playwright Lucas Hnath’s mother. As a work both of witness and theatrical construction, Dana H. raises a hundred questions about authorship, violence, voice. Dana H. is at the Lyceum Theatre.
Netflix Picks Up Maggie Gyllenhaal’s ‘Lost Daughter’ for U.K., Germany From Entertainment One
Netflix has picked up Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut “The Lost Daughter” for additional territories, snapping up U.K., Benelux and German rights to the Venice-premiering feature. The streaming service struck the deal with Entertainment One, which had previously secured the rights for these markets from Endeavor Content. The film, which picked up the Best Screenplay award for Gyllenhaal out of Venice, was adapted from the 2006 novel by author Elena Ferrante. In his Variety review, critic Peter Debruge wrote: “Gyllenhaal assumes an unfussy, practically invisible non-style that conveys the essential … while privileging the performances.”In addition to Venice, “The Lost Daughter” has also played at the Telluride Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Festival Lumière in Lyon and BFI London Film Festival. Producers include Gyllenhaal, along with Talia Kleinhendler and Osnat Handelsman-Keren for Pie Films; Charles Dorfman for Samuel Marshall Films; and Endeavor Content.
F1’s US Growth Spurs Gaming Startup GridRival’s $3M Seed Round
Benefiting from Formula One’s ascent in the U.S., GridRival recently raised a $3 million seed round to build a gaming destination exclusively for motorsports fans. GridRival hopes to attract fans of NASCAR, IndyCar and MotoGP, but its focus on F1 has given the startup a new angle into the American market. GridRival co-founder Ross Fruin doesn’t believe that those fans—new and old—are being fully served by the existing fantasy and gaming products on the market. “Most motorsports fans, if you start to dissect their interests … are usually not traditional sports fans,” Fruin said in an interview. “It was really difficult for us to raise money two, three years ago when there wasn’t as much attention on motorsports,” Fruin said.
IATSE and AMPTP Reach a Deal, Which Members May Still Reject
Photo: Myung J. Chun / Los Angeles Times via Getty ImagesThe International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees reached a tentative deal for a three-year agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. AMPTP represents studios like Disney, Universal, and Paramount, and if a contract deal had not been reached by Monday, 60,000 IATSE members would have gone on strike. And although that strike was averted, many IATSE members are still not happy. On social media, many IATSE members have been expressing dismay at what few gains were won after such a display of collective willpower. According to IATSE, 90 percent of their members voted in the strike authorization, with 98 percent voting “Yes.” The Instagram account ia_stories temporarily shut off comments as members expressed dissatisfaction with the deal.
‘Succession’ Season 3 Premiere Recap: Battle of the Bastards
A review of the Succession Season Three premiere, “Secession,” coming up just as soon as a Pope follows me on Twitter…Midway through “Secession,” Kendall’s girlfriend Naomi Pierce jokes on the phone that he may be the best man in the world. We know enough about Kendall Roy after two seasons to know how wrong he is about virtually all of that. This is most palpable in the excruciatingly awkward phone conversation Roman and Logan have late in the episode. Roman feels he has earned the job — has been the good son that everyone treats as the bad son — but is ultimately too cowardly to seize it. But even before that call, you can see Roman, Shiv, and the others all waffling about what to do, and why.
‘Succession’ Season 3, Episode 1 Review: ‘Secession’ — Spoilers
Telling phone calls, misplaced mercy, and at least one brilliant woman play major roles in the fiery first episode of "Succession's" latest season. [Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Succession” Season 3, Episode 1, “Secession.”]The Roy family has returned, and already they’re taking up chunks of premium real estate. Costly decisions pile up faster than their fuel bills, starting with Kendall, the de facto “loser” of this week’s episode. By the end of the episode, Kendall only has who he started with: Greg (Nicholas Braun). Shiv Show at the Fuck Factory– Is losing the CEO job for a second time enough to push Shiv to Kendall’s side?
Climate Brief: News Roundup, A US small-town mayor sued the oil industry. Then Exxon went after him
The U.S. Treasury Department is now taking steps to better understand the financial risks of climate change and climate transition to Americans, especially in low-income and historically disadvantaged communities, a senior administration official told CNBC. It is part of the Biden administration’s overall effort to tackle climate change. But they are often ignored in the national climate plans, known as Nationally Determined Contributions, that form the basis of negotiations at COP. No, the worst part about leather, according to environmental activists, is that it’s a major contributor to climate change. x "To take it out is to decide that climate change isn't a problem."
A New Celtic Nation?
He said Wales is being left behind his fellow high tech Irish Celts by the English ignoring Welch needs. Both Wales and Scotland could join a new Celtic federation of Ireland, Wales and Scotland to create a new United Celtic Republic in the EU and overcome many of the economic drawbacks of breaking with the UK. An interesting historical fact: England ruled half of France in the 15th Century ( the age of Joan of Arc). And then collapsed into Civil War (The War of the Roses) after Henry V’s untimely death at 25. Then came the Brexit Civil War, and it’s going up in smoke once again.

It has turned its back on the captive peoples of Eastern Europe, abandoning their cause in the United Nations and in the official utterances of our government.

JON STEWART Laments that There is Too Much Focus on Donald Trump

I mean focusing on things that are more urgent and elemental in people's lives and really hammering away at those things." x Jon Stewart: "I think the media does a terrible job at de-escalation.

CLIMATE ANXIETY AND THE TRIBULATION
Everyone has climate anxiety these days. The 25% of Americans who believe, or want to believe, that Trump is still president cope with climate anxiety by living in an alternate reality. Trump was sent by God to hasten the destruction of the biosphere, in order to fulfill prophecies about the Tribulation. The worse the climate catastrophe, the worse the plague, the happier they are that Judgment Day is near, and the more they cling to him. Only then can we, with the help of our Higher Power, save the planet.
Satirist Andy Borowitz: "Trump to Skip 2024 Campaign and Go Straight to Claiming He Won"
These days, it's always nice to find a little humor in politics. The New Yorker magazine's satirist Andy Borowitz's October 12 satire in The Borowitz Report is entitled: "Trump to skip 2024 campaign and go straight to claiming he won." "Trump said that, although he already won the 2024 election, ‘there was fraud and corruption like you wouldn’t believe.’”Here's the last paragraph:
LGBTQ Literature: Vice Patrol: Cops, Courts, and the Struggle Over Urban Gay Life Before Stonewall
Hill, on the other hand, connected the arrests to the larger history of vice officers policing queer people:It is clearly about shaming gay people. I remember when I was in college and first dipping my toes into gay life. So I was really intrigued when I saw Anna Lvovsky’s new book, Vice Patrol: Cops, Courts, and the Struggle Over Urban Gay Life Before Stonewall. Some arms of the state, such as sympathetic trial judges who had profound doubts about the tactics used by vice officers, clashed with other arms of the state, such as the virulently anti-gay vice officers themselves. Parts of it, such as the unique social anxieties hovering around gay life in the 1960s, might be specific to that tale.

the day the world economy came to the brink
In January of 2019, World Bank President, Jim Yong Kim threw the global financial development sector into a state of disarray by quitting his job as head of the World Bank to take a real job with some Wall Street financial institution or other. I’m a cat remember, the salient details are all I listen to, so I don’t know to which company Kim fled. “Daddy please, please, let me do it,” Ivanka begged, “I took Econ 100 in college - I can do it. You’re always saying that.”Spanky shook his head almost imperceptibly and whispered, “But pussycat, what about your clothing line? And yes, I know we’re not popular.”“No honey, cancer is not popular - you two have taken it to a whole new level.”

DK WAYWO: Virtual learning for Arts
I feel I am still in my learning phase with quilting and embroidery. The point of this is, while I prefer in person-learning, I have found online / virtual learning works well. What I miss most with the virtual learning is the lack of camaraderie of fellow enthusiasts. So even though meeting is person is limited, I feel I am still continuing my learning journey. What are you thoughts on virtual learning in crafts?

At that time, I cited, “You might be surprised to find that last year’s inflation was only 0.7%.” The 2015 Social Security Cost-Of-Living adjustment was 0.0! As you might have seen, the government has acknowledged inflation, in that the Social Security COLA next year is 5.9 %. I’ve been experiencing inflation, as have many folks, in terms of food prices. Are you experiencing inflation in your daily life? There are economists that say some inflation is good, but we live on a finite planet.
Sinema Gets Max Donations From Top GOP Donors.
Well file this under the least surprising thing ever, In fact, the longest part of writing this diary was the 20 minutes or so I spent trying to find something that would literally shock me less. But anyway, I digress, it seems according to FEC records obtained by Mother Jones Several GOP donors who have previously supported efforts to elect Donald Trump, have maxed out their support for the ulcer inducing, “Mavericky” Senator from Arizona. So in fairness to Kyrsten Sinema she is not just tanking Democrats chances in 2022 for the sake of Big Pharma, No, She is tanking Democrats chances in 2022 for Big Pharma and a whole posse of the worst people in the world. They and many other Republican mega donors who donated to Sinema also donated large sums to bring fascism to America in 2016. Click here to read the sordid details.

Not even uber "patriot" Dean Cain: In his early 1990s show, he fought for "truth and justice" - no American Way.
IN THE END, IT WILL TAKE A CHANGE IN VALUES AND IDEALS IF DEMOCRACY IS TO SURVIVE
(Had we several parties of relatively equal strength, this takeover most likely could not have taken place.) The GOP shows no indications of withdrawing their support of Trump, admitting to the errors of their ways or even acknowledging their support for democracy. Yes, independent media has aided in this respect but they have their counterparts who wish only to misinform the public. This is the question we should be asking ourselves, whether it's all just a game of PRETENDING purpose, goals or even ideology. Sad to say, but I've come to suspect that the "truest believers" among us might soon prove themselves the biggest suckers of all.

Should Religious Exemptions Be Available for the COVID Vaccinations? Will SCOTUS Intervene?
The lower courts sustained the governor’s actions and in an unprecedented action the Supreme Court, without any oral argument, overturned the actions of the governor. Does the rule of law, public safety and general welfare trump any claim of religious exemption? On December 1st the Supreme Court will revisit Roe v Wade and expectations are the six member conservative faction will overturn or seriously limit. Has the Supreme Court exceeded the authority envisioned by the Constitution? Some proposals to overhaul the Supreme Court — like the institution of term limits and a modest expansion of the bench — would arguably be salutary.

It’s about time Native land is recognized and stop Keystone Pipeline, Then we turn around and ask OPEC and others to produce more oil. After giving Republicans the green light on massive military, we need to do better! What alternatives to Keystone Pipeline? One strange idea is to use land owned by Republicans, to see how they feel about oil if it is in their backyard. Using Alberta oil is better than importing abroad.
"Civil War started" is more likely not about having a permit for one
(Snopes)The reality is that a Civil War might exist without a declaration of its initiation, much like not being in a location also reveals a location. Scott Macfarlane reported today Proud Boy Zach Rehl texted at 2:29pm "CIVIL WAR HAS STARTED" one minute later where I was, a guy with a megaphone yelled "THEY'RE IN" to massive cheers. The Boogaloo Boys are a far-right movement known for their violence, their Hawaiian shirts, and their desire to spark a second U.S. Civil War. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the group's name and movement refer to their desire for a insurrectionist revolt that would spark another Civil War. The first such war, started by secessionist Southern slave states, lasted from 1861 and 1865 and left some 620,000 Americans dead.
Hey Kyrsten Sinema, Unlike Sexuality, American Politics is Binary.
I wish Kyrsten Sinema (who cut her teeth fighting an anti-gay agenda in Arizona) could understand that unlike human sexuality, American politics is binary. If you cripple Biden’s agenda for whatever reason you think important, you get a Republican congress in 2022. Does anyone doubt that will lead to a fiercely anti-LGBTQ agenda? American politics in binary. If you are committed to LGBTQ rights you must not destroy the only party that defends those rights.

Perhaps Sens. Sanders and Smith should invite Sens. Manchin and Sinema to discuss BBB in prime time
One of President Bill Clinton’s top priorities in his first year in office was to pass the North American Free Trade Act. Bernie Sanders chairs the Senate Budget Committee and negotiated the $3.5 trillion budget resolution which the entire caucus voted for. In 2017, Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar agreed to a high stakes debate against Sens. Bernie Sanders and Joe Manchin have publicly expressed their differing opinions on BBB to the press and in op-eds; there’s nothing that prevents them from doing so face-to-face. The counterargument was that the CNN debate might have been the best opportunity for the Democrats to publicly make their case.

End of an Era.....
However, in 1988, American President Lines - APL -built some container ships that were too wide for the Panama Canal - post-Panamax ships, so-called - ships built expressly for the Asia-US West Coast or Asia -Europe trade. We’ll return to that scoffing later, and those APL ships, the first container ships too wide for the Panama Canal and in 1988 the biggest in the world, over 900 feet long and 120 feet wide. The worldwide volume of containers and the number of container ships exploded. It was a haunting moment, that moment, watching that huge ship ghost by, enormous, just huge. It felt like the passing of an era, and now I think it was.

The world is burning, but as long as the wildfires don’t touch Manchin’s scattered piles of coal cash, he’s more than willing to let it burn.

Why is he holding up meaningful climate action based on a dying industry with no future? I’ve poured untold resources into dying relationships with no future, but eventually I smartened up.

Some Insurrectionists Insist On Trying To Represent Themselves In Court
That choice already has led to some curious legal maneuvers and awkward exchanges in court. They risk getting themselves in more legal trouble if they say the wrong thing in court.

Nuts & Bolts: Apathy is always at risk
Voter apathy isn’t just, “Well, I don’t want to vote.” It is often a result of voter suppression that puts hurdles in voters’ path to the ballot box. If the voter isn’t the bad guy in voter apathy, how can you give a voter and a candidate a way to talk about apathy as a problem without that framing? Voters need a reason to vote, most often a positive reason. But unless the opposition is an unbelievably terrible incumbent, potential voters also need to hear something positive about you. Republicans fall in line and will vote for their candidates, but Democratic voters need to fall in love with a candidate to really get out there.
News Roundup: Idaho GOP embraces antisemitism; 'bogus' academy highlights charter school mess
Idaho Republicans know what they stand for: antisemitism, deadly viruses, and "freeing your face." In the news today: The decay of the Republican Party into an anti-science, pro-hoax, violence-peddling, virus-promoting cult is a national issue, but that still doesn't explain whatever's been happening in Idaho. A man placed in solitary confinement for over a year is the first to use new law to sue over his treatment. And if you didn't know the nation's charter schools were a mess?

Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States
Syringe and Vaccine(Image by NIAID) Details DMCAThe narrative related to the ongoing surge of new cases in the United States (US) is argued to be driven by areas with low vaccination rates. A similar narrative also has been observed in countries, such as Germany and the United Kingdom. At the same time, Israel that was hailed for its swift and high rates of vaccination has also seen a substantial resurgence in COVID-19 cases. We investigate the relationship between the percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases across 68 countries and across 2947 counties in the US.

Will 2024 Be the Year American Democracy Dies? by Spencer Bokat-Lindell
Richard L. Hasen, a professor at the University of California, Irvine, School of Law and an expert in election law," believes that the rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol is a preview of where the country is still heading. In a paper published this month, he wrote that “The United States faces a serious risk that the 2024 presidential election, and other future U.S. elections, will not be conducted fairly, and that the candidates taking office will not reflect the free choices made by eligible voters under previously announced election rules.”It could be a bloodless coup, he warns, executed not by rioters with nooses but “lawyers in fine suits”: Between January and June, Republican-controlled legislatures passed 24 laws across 14 states to increase their control over how elections are run, stripping secretaries of state of their power and making it easier to overturn results."
Reason off the Rails;by David Breeden
"John Lewis got it right: “Democracy is not a state. .”It’s time for people who care about words and about reason to examine our assumptions. So many progressives are astonished that the products of the European Enlightenment don’t get the respect they once did. One reason for that could well be that most people never got asked what they thought about the whole thing. If we consider them worthy as goals, it’s time we use our noodles reasonably and decide to act like they matter."
Build Back Better Legislation: New Keynesianism or Neoliberal Public Relations Stunt?
Some provisions of Biden’s “Build Back Better” legislation benefit the masses of Black people, but this legislation is a bare minimum effort to blunt some of the sharpest contradictions of the system while attempting to maintain the neoliberal order. Even the editors at the Wall Street Journal, the flagship paper of the U.S. ruling class, argued that adjustments to what has been called neoliberalism had to be made, and the editors of the Financial Times, the paper of choice for the international bourgeoisie, made what was a startling claim on April 4, 2020 that the era of neoliberalism was basically over.
We Must Force Politicians to Recognize the Stakes of This Moment
The argument isn't about whether we can afford President Biden's Build Back plan. It is whether we are so foolish not to do it. The press focuses on the debate over unimaginably large numbers - $3.5 trillion against $1.5 trillion and the $550 billion infrastructure bill against the $3.5 billion reconciliation bill. But this isn't a debate about numbers. It is an argument about morals, about what kind of country we are and what kind of country we want to be..

The Supreme Court Has Gone Off the Rails; by Donald Ayer Reagan's U.S. attorney /principal deputy solicitor general
Justices who once derided judicial “meddling” are now meddlers themselves.As the court begins a new term, regrettably, its recent history suggests that it lacks a majority of justices with sufficient concern about the basic continuity and integrity of the law or the ability of government to function. To merit the public trust, their judgments must not appear simply as assertions of individual value choices by the justices or willy-nilly discard long-established court precedents that profoundly affect people’s lives. Nor should they actively undermine the ability of governments to advance public purposes as established by a fair democratic process." Mr. Ayer was a U.S. attorney and principal deputy solicitor general in the Reagan administration and deputy attorney general in the George H.W. Bush administration.
Right-wing extremist soldiers pose threat to Lithuania
There are about 600 German troops in Lithuania, leading a Nato battlegroup. Two sides of the same coin should be mentioned when we look at foreign troops in Lithuania. Though Russian threat fortunately remains hypothetical, foreign soldiers deployed in the country cause serious trouble. Such persons served in Lithuania and, probably, serve now and pose a real threat to Lithuanian military, local population. Lithuanian authorities should fully realize this threat and do not turn a blind eye to the criminal behaviour of foreign military in Lithuania.

Economically speaking, however, as the New York Times reported, he didn't not when it comes to China anyway. We face a future all-too-literally embroiled in what, as he explains, could be the hottest "war" around. Of course, politicians, scientific groups, and environmental organizations will offer plans of every sort in Glasgow to reduce global carbon emissions and slow the process of planetary incineration.

Hidden In The Reconciliation Bill: A Retirement Plan Mandate That Will Take Most People by Surprise: Elizabeth Bauer
"Readers, I am embarrassed to admit that a radical change to our retirement system, tucked into the “Build Back Better” Budget Reconciliation bill, wholly escaped my notice until just recently. As explained by Ashlea Ebeling, also at Forbes, “Under the proposal, starting in 2023, employers with 5 or more employees would have to offer a retirement plan & automatically enroll employees, diverting 6% of their pay to a retirement account. An automatic escalation clause would increase the automatic contribution to 10% of pay by year 5. The default plan would be a Roth IRA invested in a target-date fund, a mix of investments based on your expected retirement year.“For employers, it’s a mandate. Employees would be able to opt out.”

Revealed: Facebook's Secret Blacklist Of "Dangerous Individuals And Organizations"
Facebook has for many years barred users from speaking freely about people and groups it says promote violence. The restrictions appear to trace back to 2012, when in the face of growing alarm in Congress and the United Nations about online terrorist recruiting, Facebook added to its Community Standards a ban on “organizations with a record of terrorist or violent criminal activity.” This modest rule has since ballooned into what’s known as the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy, a sweeping set of restrictions on what Facebook’s nearly 3 billion users can say about an enormous and ever-growing roster of entities deemed beyond the pale.

The Supreme Court and Abortion: Why This Term is Important
The highest court in the land has convened in what may become a rather legendary term. Ever since Roe, right-to-lifers prefer to emphasize moral issues over legal ones. Since 1973, the legal issue this controversy presents has been one decided in terms of law. Then, under a Republican administration, the same Chief Shenanigan rushed through three court appointments, making the balance of the court now heavily in favor of so-called conservatives. It must be established that there are valid points of argument on both sides of the abortion issue.

The Empires That Brought Us Here
What might be helpful would be a clear-eyed historical account of empires rising and falling, written by someone aware of all of this and dedicated to both cutting through centuries-old propaganda and avoiding simplistic explanations. And that we now have in Alfred W. McCoy's To Govern the Globe: World Orders and Catastrophic Change, a 300-page tour through empires past and present, including the empires of Portugal and Spain. McCoy provides a detailed account of these empires' contributions to genocide, slavery, and in contrast discussions of human rights. McCoy interweaves considerations of demographic, economic, military, cultural, and economic factors, with some interesting consideration of what we would today call public relations.

The Week Ahead: Trump redux
The unofficial kickoff of the former guy's presidential campaign at a rally Saturday night in Des Moines will reverberate through American politics this week. All indications are that Trump is going to cast the midterm elections as a referendum on himself rather than on Biden. We've already observed it at the state level: Trump's Big Lie has moved 18 Republican-dominated states to enact 33 laws suppressing the votes of likely Democratic voters, on the false pretext of eliminating "voter fraud" that doesn't exist. But for a brief time it seemed as if senior Republicans in Washington would try to move the party away from Trump. For Trump to make the midterm elections into a referendum on himself and his Big Lie is useful for the Democrats.
Raise Congressional Pay -- and Tax the Rich
Under the Stock Act, members of Congress must disclose their own stock trades, and those of their spouses, within 45 days. First, preemptively raise congressional pay: In addition to the base salary, generous allowances for dependent spouses and children (let's say $50,000 per dependent). Second, require members of Congress to put their FAMILY wealth into "blind trusts" so that they don't know how the money is invested. Of course, congressional spouses aren't automatically bound by congressional rules, but members could be given the option of convincing their spouses, or resigning, or being sanctioned by losing committee seats, being barred from leadership, or even being expelled. The goal here is for no one to leave Congress wealthier than he or she entered it.

How Far Down the Road Towards Fascism Has America Gone?
From Hartmann ReportWe are close to either a collapse or a renewal of democracy: which way will America go? While there's apparently "nothing to see here" when it comes to conservative media outlets and even, in many ways, mainstream media, it's worth asking the question: "How far down the road toward authoritarian oligarchy, or even outright fascism, have we gone?" As a German college professor told reporter and author Milton Mayer just after World War II when Mayer essentially asked him, "How could you guys have let this happen? "Our work is guided," Hayden wrote, "by the sense that we may be the last generation in the experiment with living." As Hayden wrote, "Freedom and equality for each individual, government of, by, and for the people these American values we found good, principles by which we could live as [citizens]."

Film Review: Pig: She May Be A Pig, But I Love Her
Check out this whopper from The Technological Society (1954):Things in history, like human lives themselves, come to ends. The question is not the reform of technological society; it is the question whether human meaning is possible in its world. The technological society reduces the human spirit to desire, just as an individual life can be reduced to one of its dimensions. It's a tale about human love. In his search for the pig, Rob meets up with downtrodden folks, desperadoes, druggies, including the actual thieves, a young skanky couple, who say they sold the pig to a cityslicker they can't describe.
What will anti-colonial socialist revolution look like?
To find what an anti-colonial socialist revolution will look like on the continent the colonists have named "North America," one first has to ask what it means for a Marxist-Leninist to support Land Back. When the U.S. capitalist state is overthrown, like the tsarist monarchy was overthrown preceding Russia's socialist revolution, the oppressed nations here will have to overcome a comparable contradiction to the one that the countries occupied by the Russian empire faced. Like was the case for the nations within China's borders following the socialist revolution there, these nations answered the Bolsheviks' offer for joining a new proletarian democracy with a resounding "Yes!" Getting all the stolen land back into the control of the tribes is merely the first step towards socialist revolution. The colonized nations must have the opportunity to become part of a socialist project, which can only be made possible by movement-building.
Anti-Muslim hate crimes in India could affect Hindus in Bangladesh: Sheikh Hasina
Amid rising incidents of hate crimes against the Muslims in India and the Narendra Modi government's biased policies towards minorities, Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has warned New Delhi that these incidents could affect the Hindu community in her country. With 12.7 million in numbers, Hindus are the second largest population after Muslims (135 million) in Bangladesh, which is the third-largest Hindu populated country of the world, just after India and Nepal. Rumors on social media about the alleged desecration of a Quran in Cumilla (Bangladesh) on Wednesday sparked tensions and communal violence. However, Hasina also used the occasion to urge India to remain vigilant against the escalation of any communal violence. "We expect that nothing happens there (in India), which could influence any situation in Bangladesh affecting our Hindu community here," Hasina said.
The General Strike of 2021
All told, about 4 million American workers have been leaving their jobs every month since last spring. You might say American workers have declared a national general strike until they get better pay and improved working conditions. No one calls it a general strike. This general strike has nothing to do with the Republican bogeyman of extra unemployment benefits supposedly discouraging people from working. It can't be the reason for the general strike.

“This pandemic really just added a magnifying glass.”In the earliest days of the pandemic, nightly celebrations lauded the bravery of front-line health care workers. Federal data shows health care workers faced 73% of all nonfatal injuries from workplace violence in the U.S. in 2018. “Front-line health care workers and first responders have been on the battlefield for 18 months,” Garland said. De Leon-Minch said the federal bill, which passed the House in April, aims to extend that protection to health care workers nationwide. For health care workers such as Kamara, all this antagonism toward them is a far cry from the early days of the pandemic when hospital workers were widely hailed as heroes.
We now know how badly our cities will be flooded due to climate change
It paints a picture of a future Earth in which, regardless of actions taken today, hundreds of millions of people will be displaced from their homes by rising sea levels. The carbon dioxide emissions already released into our atmosphere will linger for hundreds of years, warming the oceans and thus causing sea levels to rise. Each successive degree only increases the damage, as sea levels progressively rise and thereby displace more people. Increase that by half a degree, and suddenly 5.9 percent of Americans could deal with rising sea levels. If it goes up by 3°C or 4°C, 7.9 percent or 9.9 percent of the American population could see rising sea levels where they live.
Comedian Dave Chapelle’s The Closer: A racist tirade disguised as stand-up comedy
On October 5, veteran US comedian David Chappelle premiered his latest stand-up comedy special The Closer on Netflix. Chapelle’s 72-minute special, however, is not comedy so much as it is a racist rant. In many instances, those engaging in violence against Asian Americans invoked the libel that China was responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. community has made, while progress toward racial equity has been much slower.” That is, Gay agrees with Chapelle’s premises but perhaps not all his conclusions. The movement of the working class, which has revolutionary implications, is attracting the most thoughtful and progressive layers of the middle classes to its side and repelling the more selfish and degenerate affluent elements.

Lucy spacecraft begins 12-year mission to study asteroids and the origins of the Solar System
The NASA space probe Lucy began its 12-year mission after being successfully launched from Cape Canaveral aboard an Atlas V 401 rocket. An artist's conception of the Lucy spacecraft flying past the binary pair Trojan asteroids the binary pair 617 Patroclus-Menoetius. Millions of these small bodies exist in the solar system and hundreds of thousands have been cataloged for more careful study. The Lucy mission is named after this skeleton as a tribute and in the hopes the Lucy spacecraft will provide insight into the origins of the planets similar to what the Lucy fossil provided in relation to the development of the Homo genus. In practice, the Discovery missions are bound by the philosophy championed by Clinton-appointed NASA administrator Daniel Goldin that space missions should be “faster, better, cheaper” and have very limited budgets.
Quarterly earnings put major banks on path for record yearly profits
The world’s largest banks posted record third quarter earnings this past week, putting 2021 on track to be the most lucrative year in history for the financial world. (AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)Leading the banks is JPMorgan Chase, which, during this time, made an estimated $131 million per day . The surge in bank profits is fundamentally bound up with the unprecedented pumping of money into the stock markets by all the major central banks. Much of the record profits that are being made by these banks comes from precisely this type of speculative activity. As the banks make record profits, the bottom half of the US have, collectively, negative wealth.
Coalition Urges Biden to Change Approach to Global Food, Agriculture
Jim Goodman, board president of the National Family Farm Coalition, said in a statement that it’s time for a clear break from the agriculture policies under former President Donald Trump. “This pro-corporate agriculture agenda must change under your watch,” the groups said. The U.S. government must also “refrain from trade challenges to other countries’ efforts to advance food sovereignty, the right to adequate food, biodiversity protection, and confront climate change.” The letter also calls for transparent, public disclosures of any engagement between corporate agribusiness representatives and U.S. officials. Taking such steps for “transformative change,” the groups wrote, would help “protect our food systems from the climate and biodiversity crises and ensure an end to hunger globally.”This piece was reprinted by Truthout with permission or license.

This week in history: October 18-24
It was the largest demonstration in the history of Belgium. More than 300,000 people, carrying white balloons, white roses and white lilies, joined the protest over the case of Marc Dutroux, accused of murder, abduction and child pornography. Known as the “Knapp Commission” after the commission’s chairman, Judge Whitman Knapp, the investigation would reveal widespread systematic criminal activity throughout the entire police force. The expose caused widespread public outrage, forcing Lindsay to convene the Knapp Commission. 100 years ago: Communist University of the Toilers of the East foundedCommunist University of the Toilers of the East in MoscowOn October 21, 1921, the Communist International founded the Communist University of the Toilers of the East in Moscow.
Hospital Workers Report Rising Violence Throughout Pandemic
“This pandemic really just added a magnifying glass.”In the earliest days of the pandemic, nightly celebrations lauded the bravery of front-line health care workers.

Evidence of money laundering at the collapsed Surfside, Florida condo complex
Evidence has emerged that money laundering was involved during the initial construction and sale of condo units at Champlain Tower South, the Surfside, Florida building that catastrophically collapsed on June 24 and killed 98 people. The architect’s license had been suspended in Florida after sign structures he designed collapsed during Hurricane Betsy in 1965.”None of this slowed down the development of the project as the drug money flowed in. “That’s why concealed buyer identities, all-cash sales, hidden sources of private loan money, overpaying for condos and rapid repayment of loans are all considered red flags for money laundering,” the report says. At Champlain South and North Towers, “Buyers purchased units through shell companies located in countries such as Panama and the Netherlands Antilles, both notorious for laundering drug money through anonymous corporations. It should be pointed out that just as the real estate parasites were laundering drug money in Miami-Dade County real estate deals, the CIA and the Reagan White House were using drug money from Colombian-based crack cocaine sold on the streets of Los Angeles to finance an illegal and secret war against the government of Nicaragua.
Alberta’s hard-right UCP government stokes regionalist divisions with anti-“equalization” referendum
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and former federal Conservative leader Andrew ScheerToday’s referendum is a reactionary stunt, without legal force. Jean lost out to Kenney in the inaugural UCP leadership contest, but Kenney fully embraced Jean’s position on equalization. In fact, with the support of the trade union bureaucracy, the PQ and Quebec nationalism were used to disorient, isolate and derail a massive upsurge of the Quebec working class. Working people in Alberta must decisively reject Kenney’s reactionary “Alberta First” regionalist agenda. But voting “No” in today’s equalization referendum, does not and should not imply any support for the federal government and its equalization program.
Volkswagen: 30,000 jobs under imminent threat
Diess declared that up to 30,000 jobs would become redundant at VW, i.e., one quarter of the company’s core workforce. Now the core brand VW and especially its main plant in Wolfsburg are under pressure. The main VW plant in Wolfsburg employs about 60,000 people, including 25,000 in production, and expects to produce less than 500,000 autos this year. For the second year in a row, the Wolfsburg plant is threatened with a historic decline in its postwar production. At Audi, IG Metall already agreed to cut 9,500 jobs in 2019, with more than half of these jobs already lost.
Buffalo hospital workers continue strike against understaffing, low pay
About 2,200 nurses and other health care workers represented by the Communication Workers of America (CWA) are headed into their third week on strike against Buffalo’s Mercy Hospital, which has continued to ignore workers’ demands over staffing and low pay. Catholic Health is well-aware that the low pay rates it’s offering for the new staffing positions are so low it may never fill many of the positions promised in the deal. Now that the strike has passed its 15th day, CWA members are eligible for strike pay of just $300 per week and may file for unemployment benefits. Meanwhile, the CWA is assisting their plans by isolating the strike from other CWA workers and Catholic Health’s other facilities and denying workers adequate strike pay. They will fight to link the struggle of Mercy Hospital workers with other sections of workers, including striking Saint Vincent Hospital in Worcester, Massachusetts and Kaiser Permanente nurses in California as part of a broader offensive by workers in the US an internationally.
The destruction of Opel in Germany: A new stage in the attack on autoworkers
Old Opel headquarters in Rüsselsheim, on the right the International Technical Development Centre ITEZThe decision is directed not only against Opel workers. The financial daily Handelsblatt was the first to report Stellantis’ Opel plans. The approximately 1,400 Opel jobs there are anything but secure. Many Opel workers remember how exuberantly the IG Metall officials praised the takeover of Opel by PSA four years ago. We call on all Opel workers to form rank-and-file committees independent of the trade unions to unite with Stellantis workers and other auto and industrial workers around the world.
California SEIU executive director resigns following arrest for grand theft and tax fraud
The executive director of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) California, Alma Hernandez, was arrested last Friday on corruption charges including grand theft and tax fraud. The SEIU in California is the state’s largest union, with over 700,000 members, including social workers, janitors and doctors. During her tenure as executive director of SEIU California she presided over years of attacks on union members’ wages and living standards. SEIU Local 1000 board members met at the California Democratic Party headquarters in Sacramento to discuss the leadership of President Richard Brown. Brown was elected president of the local on June 30, having campaigned as a dissident opponent of the state SEIU bureaucracy.
Adding COVID to injury: Salt Lake City Amazon worker injured on the job, then contracts coronavirus
Jane, an Amazon worker at the SLC1 warehouse in Salt Lake City, Utah, was seriously injured and then contracted COVID, all within the space of 30 days. She contacted the International Amazon Workers Voice because she felt that what was happening was unjust. “That’s hard to do.”Now that she is injured, Amazon could not care less about its “top performer,” Jane says. Jane encourages the readers of the International Amazon Workers’ Voice to share her story and to continue exposing the conditions they face. There are now almost a million Amazon workers in the United States, representing about one out of every 150 American workers, and 1.3 million worldwide.
New Zealand government ignores scientists’ calls to increase COVID-19 restrictions
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern answers a question during a press conference at Parliament in Wellington, New Zealand. In the seven days before the drop to “level 3,” the daily average was just 16.8 cases. In comments to the Science Media Centre on October 12, epidemiologist Dr Amanda Kvalsvig pointed out the anti-democratic character of the government’s lowering of restrictions. Let’s also hear from M?ori, Pasifika [Pacific Islanders], people with underlying conditions, people who are marginalised, and children and their advocates.”M?ori and Pacific Islanders account for 414 of the active COVID-19 cases, about two thirds of the total. In the last seven days in the United States, 8,887 people died from COVID-19; in the UK, 830 people; and in Australia, 95.
German Social Democrats, Greens, Free Democrats’ coalition paper: A declaration of war on the working class
The exploratory paper consists largely of non-binding phrases, nebulous avowals, evasions and plain lies. Despite its barren platitudes, the exploratory paper does make a few things clear. Most representatives of the ruling class currently consider a traffic light coalition best suited to push through attacks on the working class and carry out military rearmament. Both draw on wealthy upper-middle-class layers that are responding to the growing anger of the working class with a shift to the right. In Berlin, it continues the coalition with the Left Party and the Greens, although the SPD’s top candidate, Franziska Giffey, said she would have preferred a traffic light coalition.
Nobel Prize committee hails US-aligned journalists, silent on Assange
(AP Photo/Matt Dunham)As has been the case many times before when it comes to the Nobel Peace Prize, even limited scrutiny belies the lofty rhetoric. However, in their celebration of press freedom, the Nobel Committee selected two journalists who have never challenged the interests of the major imperialist powers, or exposed their machinations, and who have spent their entire careers in alignment with the US state apparatus. Muratov dedicated his Nobel Prize to Alexei Navalny, a leading figure in the country’s opposition movement. Ressa’s conception of “press freedom” is strikingly similar to that of the US State Department. Such is the “fearless,” “free” and “independent” journalism that can be funded by the American state and hailed by the Nobel Committee.
UK: Corporate-backed groups promote mass infection of children with Covid-19
Covid-19 is once again ripping through the UK population, as the ruling elite actively enable mass infection. To this end the health and lives of children are being knowingly endangered. Among those backing the APPG is the Health Advisory and Recovery Group (HART), founded by businessman Narice Bernard. Another HART connection is Professor Robert Dingwall, advisor to England’s Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty’s Moral and Ethical Advisory Group. With links to anti-vax movements, including The Alliance for Natural Health, it opposes vaccinating children against Covid.
Murder of Conservative MP David Amess will be used to strengthen state and clampdown on democratic rights
On Saturday, a senior government official informed the media that the man suspected of murdering the Conservative MP Sir David Amess is Ali Harbi Ali, a 25-year-old Briton of Somali heritage. Although never becoming a minister, Amess had been an MP for almost 40 year, having first been elected in 1983. Ali made no attempt to attack anyone else and waited in the church until police arrived at 12.10pm, approximately five minutes after he stabbed Amess. Houses on the road sell for around £2million and Labour Party leader Sir Keir Starmer lives on a street nearby. Labour and the Lib Dems have announced that they will not contest the seat held by Amess in a by-election.
SEP electoral members denounce removal of COVID-19 safety measures as “profit-driven”
Electoral members have linked the rising popular opposition to government refusals to protect the population from COVID-19 to the anti-democratic electoral laws pushed through parliament with bipartisan support on August 26. On Sunday October 31, the SEP will hold an online public meeting to explain its COVID-19 eradication policies and their crucial connection to the campaign to defeat the electoral laws. To join the SEP campaign against the legislation, sign-up as an electoral member today. ****Dmitri, a 23-year-old writer from Adelaide in South Australia, became an electoral member in 2020. These electoral laws are another way to slow the movement of the majority away from capitalist politics.”Aden, a 28-year-old Victoria University student from Melbourne, became an electoral member early this year.
Escalating COVID crisis overwhelms Papua New Guinea hospitals
Amid an escalating COVID-19 crisis in Papua New Guinea (PNG), the south-west Pacific’s largest and most populous island nation, the fragile health system and its hospitals are being overwhelmed by the number of cases. Port Moresby General Hospital is reporting positive COVID testing rates of 60 percent and is scaling down its services due to the surge in patients. Dr. Kapiro Kendaura, the director of curative health services, described the situation as critical. In one three-week period, over 800 positive cases and 22 deaths from COVID-19 were recorded in the region. Only 2.5 percent of people in low-income countries have received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine.
Maurice Papon and the October 1961 massacre of Paris
We are republishing it for the first time in English for the 50th anniversary of the October 17, 1961 Paris massacre. Einaudi is the author of the 1991 book, “The battle of Paris, 17 October 1961” (Éditions du Sueil). De Gaulle confirmed the nomination, giving Papon the assignment to “hold Paris” while he sought a negotiated agreement for Algeria. Graffiti on a wall next to the Seine river in Paris, shortly after the October 1961 massacre, "Here we drown Algerians." When Claude Bourdet, during a session of the Paris Council, asked Papon to comment directly on the events, he remained silent.
Sixty years since the massacre of Algerians in Paris on October 17, 1961
The October 17, 1961 massacre is a warning as to the implications of de Villiers’ threats or the January 6 neo-Nazi coup attempt by then-President Donald Trump on the US Capitol in Washington. The October 17, 1961 massacreIn 1961, the Algerian war was in its seventh year, having cost around 400,000 Algerian and over 10,000 French lives. The LCR’s position in 2002 was a signal of its alignment with the state machine that carried out the October 17, 1961 massacre. The PES however is turned to the class struggle and the rapidly growing international movement in the working class. It commemorates the October 17, 1961 massacre by reaffirming its struggle to mobilize the working class against neocolonial wars and fascistic coup threats in France and internationally.
Australia: Bipartisan push to wind down COVID-19 contact tracing
Coles, the country’s second largest supermarket chain, has demanded the redefinition of a “close contact” and of a “Tier 1” site in order to change the current TTIQ measures. In that state Woolworths demanded, and received, NSW Health approval for the redefinition of a close contact. Previously anyone who had spent more than a minute within 1.5 metres of an infected person, even if both were wearing masks, was defined as a close contact. Currently only transmission sites outside Sydney, the state capital, and its most populous city, are reported in any detail on the NSW Health site. As part of this barrage, “7.30,” ABC-TV’s flagship current affairs show, recently broadcast a program entitled “Close Contact,” subtitled, “How contact tracing could work in the months ahead as vaccine targets are met.”The program approvingly referred to the situation in England.
Republican campaign rally in Virginia draws Trump, Bannon and fascist supporters
President Donald Trump speaks at a rally at Minden-Tahoe Airport in Minden, Nev., Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020. In his telephone message to the rally, Trump focused on claims of election fraud. While Youngkin was not in attendance, citing time “conflicts,” the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, Winsome Sears, was. In 2020, Trump lost Virginia by a 10 percent margin, with Democrat Joe Biden winning by large margins in the suburbs of Washington D.C. and Richmond. The “Take Back Virginia” rally took place in the final weeks of the Virginia race for the governor’s mansion.
Huge opposition from television and movie workers as union calls off strike and pushes sellout deal
“This is a Hollywood ending,” IATSE President Matthew Loeb said in the press release. While IATSE workers have historically turned out in low numbers, (20 to 30 percent, according to an IndieWire article from 2018), over 90 percent of workers turned out for the near unanimous vote to authorize a strike. A good many have already taken the measure of the current IATSE leadership with calls already appearing to have them replaced. Workers are fighting for a substantial increase in wages to keep up with a relentless rise in living expenses. That will not be done by replacing one union boss with another.
Strike by Deere workers challenges decades of union-backed concessions, sparking fears on Wall Street
That is why the UAW is doing everything it can to isolate the strike and undermine the powerful position of Deere workers. The rank-and-file committee established direct lines of communication with autoworkers in Detroit and with Volvo workers in Belgium and other countries. The recently formed John Deere Workers Rank-and-File Committee is leading the fight to unify all Deere workers, demand full income from the strike fund, and call for joint strike action with Dana workers and common struggle with autoworkers and Deere workers throughout the company’s international operations. To fight a transnational giant like Deere, workers need real international unity and a coordination of their struggles across national boundaries. Workers have taken a decisive step by forming the John Deere Workers Rank-and-File Committee.
The class struggle and the fight to eradicate COVID-19
More than a year and a half into the COVID-19 pandemic, a movement is emerging among parents, teachers, students, workers and scientists for policies to eradicate the coronavirus globally. Strikes elsewhere are continuing among Kellogg’s food production workers, Alabama coal miners, and nurses in New York, Massachusetts and Minnesota. Although it is not yet fully understood by many of the workers engaged in these strikes, there is a profound connection between the fight against the pandemic and the class struggle. Total reported COVID-19 deaths in the US are now fast approaching 750,000, with over 20,000 succumbing to the virus in the last two weeks. Both the growing movement to eradicate COVID-19 and the increasing resistance of the working class to ever greater levels of exploitation are being driven by the same underlying objective cause: the crisis and breakdown of capitalism.
Restless Anal Syndrome Symptoms and Other COVID-19 Gastrointestinal Side Effects
A new case report published in Japan has established a potential link between COVID-19 and what experts are calling "Restless Anal Syndrome." What is Restless Anal Syndrome? The study's authors indicated that Restless Anal Syndrome appeared to impact the body in the same way as Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS), linking it to COVID-19 as more evidence indicates that the disease can impact the central nervous system. While much more research must be done to fully understand this case and a further potential link to COVID-19, because gastrointestinal COVID-19 symptoms have long been established, the study's authors warn that the condition may be overlooked currently. The bottom line is much more research is needed to fully understand Restless Anal Syndrome, and its relevance is likely extremely low on a global scale.
Ron Tutt, Drummer for Elvis Presley, Jerry Garcia, and Billy Joel, Is Dead at 83
Ron Tutt, the Dallas-born drummer best known for touring with Elvis Presley from 1969 to 1977 as part of the TCB (Taking Care of Business) Band, has died according to a statement on the official Graceland website. In addition to his work with Presley, he recorded and toured with the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia for years on numerous side projects. As a well-regarded session player, he can also be heard on records by The Carpenters, Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons, Neil Diamond, Elvis Costello, and hits by Billy Joel like “Piano Man.” Tutt was 83 years old. Tutt, usually called Ronnie, joined Elvis’s group after his successful 1968 “comeback special,” taking the seat vacated by Presley’s longtime drummer D.J. In the mid-1970s he began recording and touring with Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, both with the side project Legion of Mary (a collaboration with Merl Saunders) and the Jerry Garcia Band.
Rami Malek‘s a Killer SNL Host, But Bowen Yang Stole the Show
Saturday Night Live is always best with a gifted actor at the helm who can also cut loose. Right from his assured monologue, in which Malek acknowledged his resting villain face, you could tell the evening was going to cook. In his monologue, Malek joked about his actual twin brother swapping places with him during the night in a sketch. “Boys, boys, BOYS!” When pressed for some actual science facts about his assigned bug, his student with a Bravo executive father said, “I’m hot, I party, I walk into a room, and I’m respected.” Do not bother him with your irrelevant questions, girl ladybug! Malek is an almost disturbingly good Prince; Thompson is a cheerful pitcher of grape juice.

Robert Pattinson's Batman Trailer Features Fear, Fire, and a Slowed-Down Nirvana Song
Robert Pattinson’s version of the Caped Crusader swooped onto the internet on Saturday with a full trailer for next year’s The Batman. The 158-second video was the capstone to DC Entertainment’s “Fandome” pep rally. While we await a counter-video from Gotham’s tourist board (surely there must be some redeeming qualities to this troubled town) there's time to study this powerhouse trailer. ContentBased just off this trailer, Pattinson’s bat-demeanor seems similarly dark and brooding to that of Christian Bale’s in the Christopher Nolan trilogy, though he seems to be giving his vocal cords a rest. The close look at The Batman, a film that's seen more than its share of pandemic-related delays, naturally caused quite a stir.

Michael Myers Slays James Bond At Domestic Box Office
It might be no time to die for James Bond, but it’s definitely a time to get seriously wounded. Cary Joji Fukunaga’s Bond picture dipped a substantial 56 percent to earn just $24.3 million at the domestic box office, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Comparatively, David Gordon Greene’s latest in the hallowed splatter series made a killing at $50.4 million. The Jamie Lee Curtis-starring slasher had a budget of “just above $20 million” according to Variety—quite the difference from Bond’s reported $250 million. The historical action-drama was unable to connect with ticket-buyers, and came in with a disastrous $4.8 million.

Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet Do Red Carpet Clashing the Right Way
Photo: Getty ImagesFashion-wise, Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet have been nailing it during their Dune press tour. For the London photo call for the movie this weekend, however, Zendaya and Chalamet really showcased that they know how to execute co-star style by power-clashing. Styled by Law Roach, Zendaya wore a spring 2020 look from Vivienne Westwood that consisted of a draped, chained top and checkerboard skirt. Chalamet, meanwhile, wore a custom, mushroom-print suit by Stella McCartney, completed by the matching shirt and heeled boots. Chalamet loves himself a printed suit, while Zendaya has the ability to pluck any runway look and make it feel like she’s wearing it—not the other way around.
Fans Are Losing It Over Harry Styles’s Love On Tour Outfits
Ever since Harry Styles kicked off his second solo tour in September—called the Love On Tour, in honor of his 2019 album Fine Line—the singer has been bringing epic fashions to the stage. “Harry Styles concerts are basically fashion shows and I love to see it,” wrote one fan. “Love On Tour isn’t a series of concerts, it’s a series of fashion conventions,” wrote another. A Love On Tour look Photo: Courtesy of Harry Lambert A Love On Tour look Photo: Courtesy of Harry LambertStyles isn’t the only one impressing the fans; the crowd has been equally well-dressed. “Harry Styles shows are like the Met Gala of concerts,” wrote one user of the ongoing fashion extravaganza.
The Hyères Winners Are In—British Designer Ifeanyi Okwuadi Takes the Top Fashion Prize
The charms of the Hyères festival in some ways mirror the higgledy-piggledy topography of its Riviera town (not to mention the modernist labyrinth of the Villa Noailles, designed by Robert Mallet-Stevens, where the events are held): You never know who or what might greet you right around the corner. It might be a surprise concert by Malik Djoudi at a lunch for industry guests hosted by Lacoste, or a performance by a Lanvin-clad Camélia Jordana to open the fashion finalists’ runway presentation. Or an underground after-party in the most unexpected of overground places, in this instance a decommissioned restaurant inside the Hyères airport. Though the festival bestows seven €20,000 prizes, boasts a roster of heavyweight sponsors—Chanel Métiers d’Art, Chloé, Hermès, Kering, LVMH, Mercedes, and Supima among them—and enjoys an international reach that far eclipses the size of the event itself, it somehow still manages to retain a laid-back, free-wheeling atmosphere that accessories jury president Christian Louboutin defines as “bon enfant”—all in good fun.

Tori Roloff shared an unexpected piece of exciting news with Instagram followers late last week:She's moved! Those who have followed Tori and Zach for years were undoubtedly thrilled for the spouses -- but they also couldn't help but ask a question:What does this mean for their future on Little People, Big World?

'90 Day Fiance': Varya Supports Geoffrey After Instagram Return
90 Day Fiancé star Varya Malina made her big return to Instagram and she shared a message of support for Geoffrey Paschel, even hinting that the couple may still be together after he was found guilty of domestic violence charges. But there wasn’t ever a place for indifference,” Malina, 31, wrote via Instagram on Saturday, October 16. “Right now, I ask all people who are also concerned about Geoffrey to unite and help the justice to be served. As In Touch previously reported, the 41-year-old Tennessee native was found guilty of all charges — aggravated kidnapping, domestic violence and interference with an emergency call — on October 7.

Opinion | Ciao, Alitalia
“The Pope’s Airline, Alitalia, to Fly Last Flight” — MarketWatchAlitalia may have had its faults, but how many airlines can claim to have been the “pope’s airline” for over five centuries? According to Flying Pontiff Quarterly, the trade journal that has covered papal air travel for some centuries now, recent scholarship has unearthed a long-buried document in the overdue section of the Vatican library purporting to trace Alitalia’s role as the official carrier of supreme pontiffs to the papacy of Julius II (1503-13). The document, titled in Latin “Numquam ad Tempus” (“Never on Time”), asserts that Alitalia had its beginning in the early 1500s, a time of great turbulence (grande turbolenza) and papal fastening of seatbelts as the Holy See engaged in fierce power struggles with the Holy Roman Empire, France, Venice, Naples, Florence and Reykjavik. Julius tasked Leonardo da Vinci, inventor, painter and all-around Renaissance man, with devising a “conveyance for timely and efficacious removal of the person of the supreme pontiff, in the event of unpleasantness (spiacevolezza).”

Opinion | For Uber and Lyft, the Rideshare Bubble Bursts
Uber and Lyft promised ubiquitous self-driving cars as soon as this year. Now a new study is punching a hole in another of Uber and Lyft’s promised benefits: curtailing pollution.

Deadheading, Lyft and Uber estimated in 2019, is equal to about 40 percent of rideshare miles driven in six American cities. “Society as a whole currently shoulders these external costs in the form of increased mortality risks, damage to vehicles and infrastructure, climate impacts and increased traffic congestion.”

Will New Covid Treatments Be as Elusive for Poor Countries as Vaccines?
Moon, co-director of the Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva. Generic production licenses for restricted territories can leave middle-income countries that have frail public health systems paying prices nearly as high as rich ones. Merck says it will use World Bank income data from these countries to calculate what it charges for the drug in each. Unitaid, the Geneva-based global health agency, said $3.5 billion in new funding from rich nations was needed to make therapeutics accessible, the bulk of it for antivirals in low-income countries.

Some started a petition in recent days to protest the region’s rising gang violence, pointing to the 400 Mawozo gang and calling on the police to take action.

Farm Sign Says Sex, Noises And Odors Inevitable To New City Slicker Neighbors [Viral Photo]
Farm Sign Says Sex, Noises And Odors Inevitable To New City Slicker Neighbors [Viral Photo]Added: 30.09.2020 6:06 | 19 views | 0 commentsSource: www.italymagazine.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?

Do the Dodgers Have a Pitching Problem?
A lot will be made of the Dodgers’ opting to use eight different pitchers in Game 1. The Dodgers’ problem in Game 1, as was the case in their two losses to the Giants in the NLDS, was that they didn’t score.

That said, scoring shouldn’t be a problem for the Los Angeles lineup, which led the National League with 5.12 runs per game.

SEC commissioner Greg Sankey tweeted a statement saying the fan behavior was “unacceptable” and that the league office will assess whether to penalize the school.

Jon Gruden emails: 'Saturday Night Live' parodies NFL scandal
On Monday, Raiders coach Jon Gruden resigned after the release of emails he had sent with misogynistic, racist and anti-LGBTQ comments.

How to Stop Action Movies From Blasting Your Ears Off
When you watch a movie in a theater, it (usually) sounds great in surround sound. Either you can’t hear the dialog at all, or a sudden action scene starts rattling your walls and disturbing your neighbors. Adjust Your Audio System’s Center ChannelMost modern movies are mixed in 5.1 surround sound: two front channels on the left and right, two in the back, one subwoofer, and one center channel for dialog. If you have a surround sound system, you can adjust this center channel independently. Enable Your System’s Version of Night ModeSome sound systems, TVs, or even streaming boxes come with an additional feature that can help fix this issue.

‘Impossible’ Particle Adds a Piece to the Strong Force Puzzle
This spring, at a meeting of Syracuse University’s quark physics group, Ivan Polyakov announced that he had uncovered the fingerprints of a semi-mythical particle. The tetraquark now presents theorists with a solid target against which to test their mathematical machinery for approximating the strong force. It painted the proton as a seething mass of quarks roped together by tangled strings of “gluon” particles, the carriers of the strong force. Somehow, the quark model can stand in for the far more complicated truth, at least when it comes to the menagerie of baryons and mesons discovered in the 20th century. “We just don’t know the pattern yet, which is embarrassing,” said Eric Braaten, a particle theorist at Ohio State University.
How the Demise of Dinosaurs Led to the Rise of Snakes
The asteroid caused around 75 percent of all species, and all of the non-avian dinosaurs, to go extinct. But the impact gave primordial snake species opportunity and space to flourish, and they did. To study this evolutionary change, a team of researchers examined the diets of existing snake species to get a glimpse into the past. According to the researchers' model, the most likely common ancestor for all existing snake species was an insectivore. It also adds to the body of research surrounding the ecological history of snakes; another paper published in September shows similar findings.

I Know What You Did Last Summer A Gorilla Head Will Not Do Season 1 Episode 3 Editor’s Rating 2 stars * * « Previous Next Photo: Amazon Prime VideoThe first two episodes of I Know What You Did Last Summer, for all their flaws, had a fairly strong central focus to them. Let’s talk about the Alison stuff first, because as it is becoming a pattern, it’s the most interesting. (The episode weirdly denies us any fight with Dale, probably because listening to him would help clarify what’s happening here. There, Dylan reveals Riley’s secret that she thought she saw Alison take a breath before they left her last summer. • Easily the most intentionally funny line of the episode is when Alison greets her dad with, “Don’t worry, I know the rules.
Benjamin Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project Hosts Glamorous Gala, With Natalie Portman, Jane Fonda, Barry Jenkins, Jodie Foster and More
The two met nearly a decade ago, in 2012, the same year Millepied founded the dance collective, and began collaborating on projects to amplify L.A. Dance Project’s mission of making dance accessible. “Tonight, I honor a dear friend, an exceptional person, Nicolas Bos,” Millepied told the audience before the show. “After years of performing in Paris’ most prestigious theaters, I wanted to explore a theater on the outskirts of the city,” Millepied explained. It’s really about giving opportunities to students who need of a creative experience that’s really positive for them. Those things alone really give L.A. Dance Project its identity.”
Rami Malek and Aidy Bryant Find the Perfect Mattress on SNL
Last night’s Saturday Night Live gave us the gift of Aidy Bryant and Rami Malek as a married couple in one of the episode’s most delightfully strange pairings. Alongside Bowen Yang, the two starred in a sketch that was part Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, part Scenes From a Marriage, and 100 percent a mattress commercial. Bryant and Malek’s wacky chemistry, as a couple going mattress shopping and acting out details of their increasingly bizarre life, is what holds this sketch together, and Yang is nicely droll here as the mattress salesman/straight man. Bryant’s delivery of the line “You reek of vermouth and whores,” Malek’s delivery of the phrase “nagging shrew,” and the eventual reveal of not one, but two, guns, pushes this sketch into “best of the night” territory.
Why the ‘Big Short’ Guys Think Bitcoin Is a Bubble
Michael Burry (as played by Christian Bale in The Big Short) believes bitcoin will crash. Cryptocurrency investors have also been largely unfazed by the fact that, in the case of bitcoin, the term “currency” is something of a misnomer. The winners of the Big Short came to define themselves as bears and proceeded to underperform everyone for 13 years. In a Bloomberg interview, Paulson noted that unlike his lucrative “big short” trade, cryptocurrencies are too volatile and risky to make them a good short. The federal government treats bitcoin as property, and Gensler’s regulatory hawkishness has generally included exceptions for bitcoin itself.
Democrats Scramble for Climate Options After Manchin Rejects Clean-Energy Plan
Senator Joe Manchin. (The state is the second-largest coal producer in the country and Manchin himself has personal financial ties to the coal industry.) Manchin’s vote is essential to Democrats’ plan to pass the massive spending bill via the reconciliation process in the Senate. “This is absolutely the most important climate policy in the package,” Leah Stokes, an expert on climate policy who has been advising Senate Democrats on how to craft the program, told the Times. It’s not clear, however, whether or not Manchin would support any of these or other potential changes.
Group of American Missionaries Kidnapped in Haiti: What We Know
Photo: Tom E. Puskar/AP/ShutterstockA group of 17 mostly American missionaries and their family members was kidnapped by gang members in Haiti on Saturday, according to multiple reports. Who was kidnappedA group of 17 Christian missionaries, including three children, were reportedly kidnapped on Saturday while traveling by bus outside Port-au-Prince. The victims include 16 Americans and one Canadian, according to a Haitian human-rights group that monitors kidnapping in the country. Two Haitian nationals may have also been kidnapped, a “person familiar with the abduction” told the Washington Post. The gang apparently controls parts of Ganthier, a community east of Port-au-Prince where the missionaries were kidnapped on Saturday.
China Tested a Nuclear-Capable Hypersonic Missile: Report
The Long March-3B rocket China used to carry a communication satellite into orbit on August 24. China reportedly used one of its Long March rockets to launch the hypersonic glide vehicle used in the test.

We put a missile defense in Alaska, China builds an orbital bombardment system to come up over the South Pole. There’s a burgeoning arms race with countries like the United States and Russia competing to develop these weapons; just last month, North Korea said it had test-fired a newly developed hypersonic missile.
There Are Crazed, Manic Cult Movies — and Then There’s ‘Possession’
In fact, when we first meet them, their marriage is about to fall apart in the most spectacular fashion imaginable. Suddenly, Adjani’s transit-tunnel freakout seems way, way too relatable. These more psychotronic elements, along with the copious amount of Caro syrup that get spilled, immediately got Zulawski’s cinematic equivalent of Blood on the Tracks — now with actual blood! Except It isn’t the operatic physical violence that we witness happening in Possession that’s so unnerving. There’s never been a better time to catch up with this truly disturbing look at 360-degree disintegration.
‘Y: The Last Man’ Canceled by FX

‘SNL’: Pete Davidson, Rami Malek Turn ‘Squid Game’ Into Country-Pop Parody
Pete Davidson and host Rami Malek turned Squid Game into a country-pop ditty on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live. The duo play a pair of down-on-their-luck country boys who, faced with mounting debt, opt to join the hit Netflix series, where they play life-or-death versions of Red Light, Green Light and the Dalgona challenge while being overseen by guys “with symbols on their faces like the ones on Playstations and the main guy looks like Dr. Doom,” Davidson sings. “$45 billion won / That’s a whole lot of money,” Malek sings of the potential prize. “At least I think it is / I’m confused by the currency.”Davidson is ultimately victorious — by pushing Malek to his death — in the Squid Game in the spoiler-heavy song, so he takes his winnings back home to America, gets a bright-red haircut and “then I got bored so I took all my money and bet it on the Jets.”“So I’m back to the Squid Game / I’m terrible with money,” Davidson sings upon his return. “The guards think it’s pretty funny / That I’m back to the Squid Game.”

‘SNL’ Tackles Jon Gruden Email Scandal, NFL Race Issues in Cold Open Sketch
Saturday Night Live tackled the email scandal involving now-former Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden — as well as the NFL’s lingering issues with race — during its latest cold open. The sketch began with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell (Colin Jost) addressing the media at a press conference. “One of our coaches is accused of racism, misogyny and homophobia, but hey, at least nobody’s talking about concussions,” Jost’s Goodell said. “I think we can all agree the emails sent by Raiders coach Jon Gruden were horrifying and deeply offensive, especially to me. Next up was Chris Redd’s Colin Kaepernick, who told the media, “Wow, so much stuff coming out about the NFL is maybe racist.
Feds Prepared ‘Deadly Force Countermeasures’ Ahead of ‘Storm Area 51’ Rally, Documents Reveal
“Storm Area 51” tapped into the deep-rooted fascination with Area 51 and turned it into millions of likes and clicks. Here are some of the most interesting details found in the new government records about Area 51 and the preparations for the “Storm Area 51” event. The new Area 51 documents include hundreds of pages of situation reports (“sitreps”), maps showing the few entrances into Area 51, and law-enforcement planning measures in anticipation of the Storm Area 51 event. “Area 51 is highly secured with layered intruder countermeasures that have an increasing level of human and automated deterrence including automated deadly force countermeasures.”In other words, any attempt to sneak on or flat-out barnstorm Area 51 — as the “Storm Area 51” planners suggested they might do — would likely be a suicide mission.

Kanye West Stages Rare Live Performance at Venice Wedding
Kanye West staged an increasingly rare performance Saturday, delivering a handful of hits during a wedding in Venice, Italy. A masked West — who, not counting his Donda stadium playbacks, last performed in March 2020 alongside his Sunday Service — reportedly delivered “Runaway,” “Flashing Lights,” and Donda’s “Come to Life” and “Believe What I Say” at the reception that followed the wedding of D’Estree founder Geraldine Guiotte and Tiffany & Co EVP Alexander Arnault, Complex reports. Video from West performing at the wedding — which was also reportedly attended by Jay-Z and Beyonce — later emerged on social media:Kanye performing "Runaway" last night at Alexandre Arnault and Geralde Guyot’s wedding in Venice. West has kept a low profile following the release of Donda in August, although the rapper did pop up in New York to support Kim Kardashian when she hosted Saturday Night Live last week. West also recently listed his Wyoming ranch — where he recorded Ye as well as LPs by Nas, Pusha-T and Teyana Taylor — for $11 million.
Superman Swaps ‘The American Way’ for ‘A Better Tomorrow’ With New Motto
Amid the parade of new trailer reveals during the 2021 DC FanDome, the comic book company announced that a significant change in the iconic Superman motto. The Man of Steel’s “mission statement” “Truth, Justice and the American Way” — which dates back to the early 1940s, when the U.S. was involved in World War II — will now be “Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow” as DC Comics shifts to a motto that “will better reflect the global storylines that we are telling across DC and to honor the character’s incredible legacy of over 80 years of building a better world,” DC Chief Creative Officer and Publisher Jim Lee said in a statement. Tom Taylor, who wrote the issue, previously said in a statement, “I’ve always said everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes, and I’m very grateful DC and Warner Bros. share this idea.”He continued, “Superman’s symbol has always stood for hope, for truth, and for justice. Today, that symbol represents something more. Today, more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in comics.”
Buttigieg Fires Back at Tucker Carlson Over Paternity Leave Attacks
Pete Buttigieg spun an attack by Tucker Carlson into an opportunity to promote paid parental leave, refusing to “apologize” to the host for taking paternity leave to care for two children he adopted with his husband, Chasten Buttigieg. Paternity leave, they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed. “And I’m not going to apologize to Tucker Carlson or anyone else for taking care of my premature newborn infant twins. I’m not going to apologize to Tucker Carlson or anyone else for taking care of our premature newborn twins." Many countries, including Japan, Bulgaria, Austria, Norway, Estonia and Slovenia, give more than a year’s worth of paid family leave.
Ronnie Tutt, Drummer for Elvis Presley and the Jerry Garcia Band, Dead at 83
Ronnie Tutt, drummer and original member of Elvis Presley’s TCB Band and the Jerry Garcia Band and a famed session musician who performed alongside Billy Joel, Buckingham Nicks and more, has died at the age of 83. Elvis Presley Enterprises announced Tutt’s death Saturday, writing on the Graceland website, “All of us with Elvis Presley Enterprises were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Ronnie Tutt. “We enjoyed each time he joined us here to celebrate Elvis Week, Elvis’ Birthday and many other special occasions. Socially speaking it was really different,” Tutt said“Elvis’ music was a lot more in your face; you could never play enough. “I just remember laughing a lot and having a good time musically, so I have nothing but good memories.”
Reps. Greene and Gaetz Are Rich in Hate, But Their PAC Is Low on Cash
A PAC started by two of the House’s most controversial members — Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) — is running low on funds and only has $13,000 in cash, Mother Jones reported. The PAC spent $159,000 between July 1st and September 30th, but only raised $57,000 in the same period. During that time, the two representatives embarked on a fundraising tour that lost money and had a number of events canceled. Despite his lackluster fundraising, the magazine noted, Gaetz is still spending extravagantly on luxurious accommodations. Let’s hope their fledgling finances are a sign Americans aren’t putting too much stock into these two extremists.
Emmanuel Macron Is Using the Pandemic to Massively Expand Police Powers
RKThe government introduced the sanitary state of emergency in March 2020, at the start of the pandemic. It reveals a certain government mindset and a certain way of imagining the relationship between the police and the population. In the context of a real crisis, the French Republic did not know how to respond other than through an exceptional legal regime giving more powers to the police. For me, this reflex in favor of adopting emergency powers is part and parcel of contemporary French history. In the governmental imaginary of the French state, there is an implicit racial bias against certain populations.
Cryptocurrency Is Bunk
Cryptocurrency is often dismissed by economists and investors alike as a purely speculative asset — for good reason. Unlike many crypto fanatics who simplistically see money creation as the remit of government, Dixon rightly points out that money creation is more at the discretion of commercial banks. Cryptocurrency as a political project has its ideological roots in the Austrian school of economic thought. The issue isn’t therefore the amount of money created but at whose discretion it is created and for what purpose. As mentioned, the issue isn’t the quantity of money created but who it’s created by.
Today’s Evangelicalism Was Forged in the Fight Against Communism and Feminism
But the purity culture of the ’90s is distinct. Meanwhile, for this whole thing to work out, boys, too, needed to not be having sex before marriage. That’s just scratching the surface in terms of what purity culture was. Purity culture pretty much dominated evangelical youth culture for more than a generation. Meanwhile, many who did wait discovered, to their deep disappointment, that married sex or their marriage itself wasn’t all that great.
Teamster Insurgents Are Preparing to Unseat Their Union’s Old Guard
Whoever wins will have two enormous items at the top of their to-do list: scaling up logistics organizing, including at Amazon, and bargaining the country’s largest private-sector union contract, UPS. The UPS contract already had a two-tier division — the part-timers who make up the sorting and loading workforce start at just $15 an hour under the contract (UPS often pays more to attract workers) — but Article 22.4 expanded the lower tier to include drivers, too. The Vote No movement should have won in 2018, when a majority of voting UPS Teamsters rejected this agreement. UPS Teamsters are still angry about it. The Vairma slate advertises itself as the diversity slate, with more women and people of color.
We Need More Radical Climate Fiction
It will take imagination and vision for humans to survive the climate crisis — a willingness to believe in things that seem impossible. To that end, early this year, Grist magazine announced a climate fiction contest, Imagine 2200, and published the winning stories as an online collection last month. In literary terms, the sensibility of Imagine 2200 can be traced to several artistic movements. Questions of class struggle are mostly elided in Imagine 2200, but there are several exceptions. It would be interesting to see what kinds of stories a socialist climate fiction contest would produce.
Sunday Reading: What Vulture Capitalism is Doing to the Newspaper Industry
A few weeks ago, we wrote about Style Weekly, Richmond's alt-weekly newspaper, folding after nearly four decades in business. "The profits generated by Alden’s newspapers did not go toward rebuilding newsrooms," Coppins concludes. That might sound like a losing formula, but these papers don’t have to become sustainable businesses for Smith and Freeman to make money.

On This Day in 1961, French Police Murdered Dozens of Pro-independence Algerians
Sixty years ago today, the Paris police force brutally attacked a peaceful demonstration by Algerians in the French capital. The Algerian FLN (Front de libération nationale, National Liberation Front) had been waging a bitter struggle for independence since 1954. The French Federation therefore called for a peaceful, disciplined demonstration; no one was to carry the smallest pin or knife in their pockets. A delegation was sent to Brussels with the aim of organizing a joint demonstration, in particular by French and Algerian women. A proposal for joint action was rejected by the French Federation of the FLN, thus refusing to allow the Communist Party to evade responsibility for its previous attitude.
Pandemic Observations -- October 15, US States & Canadian Provinces (Good News Edition):
Clovid-19Except for Alaska, the trends in new Covid-19 cases are looking increasingly benign in both the US and Canada this week, and even new deaths are starting to follow suit now for the most part (note that the scary looking stats from Nebraska are mostly a result of their increasingly erratic release of new fatality data). The only real question remaining at this point is whether we are on the final downslope of this pandemic, or whether we will see yet another resurgence in the weeks and months ahead. It’s worth noting that our huge (pre-Delta) winter surge was just starting to ramp up at this point last year, so the longer we can continue without such a reversal in trendlines, the better our long-term prospects for reducing this pandemic to more manageable proportions.

Why is dKos showing pictures of Black men being lynched??
Ive been at dKos for a long time. Ive been here since it was a gathering place for those of us who wanted Howard Dean to win the 2004 Presidential primary. Which is why all these advertisements showing Black men getting lynched has me roiled up. dKos cannot simply take advertising dollars abd ignore the images that take up precious real estate on these hallowed pages. Contact dKos' advertising page and tell them to remove paid images of Black men swinging from the gallows.

A day off at the Lake.
I took yesterday off and went to Sardis Lake to capture birds on film. I clicked and then had to check that I got a Bald Eagle grabbing a fish from the lake. Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Osprey and Blue Jays moved from shore to trees with meals. Great Blue HeronA growl of my own stomach urged me to the truck. It was a good day and I hope you all enjoyed the moment.
Denial as a form of mind control.
I had never fully considered how tortured his mind was, and what he had come to fear that led to his own premature death. In a world that has filled the oceans with death in the form of plastic bottles. The Oceans will rise 10 feet by the end of the Century, how many of us are aware of this? Denial and Mega-Lies Block ProgressThe political aspect of denial, a form of mind control, has become part of daily world politics, especially here in America.

Trees and other vegetationGlobal extent of the boreal forest. are well adapted to these cold temperatures, and revive for the growing season before summer, to gain maximum advantage from the longer days, even despite the still-cold temperatures.

Average annual temperatures across the region have increased, leading to species change, toward species better able to tolerate warmer temperatures.
Religion 102: Good-Evil dualism
In the mythologies of many religious traditions, there are stories of battles, fights, and conflicts between good gods and evil gods, between noble warriors and evil demons, dragons, and other entities. In monotheistic religions, dualism is often evident in the belief that certain religions are good, and others are evil. In these places religion has been the explicit cause of literally millions of deaths in the last ten years.”A few examples of good/evil dualism are described below. More recently, many Christian Protestant fundamentalists characterize Islam as an evil religion. Like other monotheistic religions, Islam sees itself as the only true religion.

Fanatical Republican Extremist of the Day: Doug LaMalfa- 2021 Update
There was an old joke about how cowboy hats are like hemorrhoids, in that sooner or later, every ***hole has one. Republican Congressman Doug LaMalfa, in California's 1st Congressional District, is walking evidence of that. Since the election of Donald Trump, no matter how grievously stupid the President or his family might be… LaMalfa has been a tenacious defender of them. Even if that district has a +10 Republican lean, and is atypical for what you’d expect for California… maybe people there aren’t livid, right? We knew he hated immigrants, but he’s “all-in” on the subject for someone who supposedly represents a district in a blue state.
Labor’s Reawakening
Over a decade and a half ago, Josh Marshall described the phenomenon that he came to call “dominance politics”. The purpose of dominance politics is to attack, attack, attack, and make it appear that the opponent has not fought back. To quote Marshall, “Someone who can’t or won’t defend themselves certainly isn’t someone you can depend upon to defend you”. For many American workers, the Trump presidency just brought to the political arena an element of abuse that they were enduring at the workplace. During the pandemic, low wage workers who have been told for decades that they are expendable and easily replaced suddenly became “essential” and “heroes”.
I like mail in-ballots, especially in off year elections
As you are aware, republican political operatives are placing Trumpanista's at low level positions, like judge of elections, or school boards that most people could care less about. With the 'steal the vote' crowd, that's part of the overall strategy of having the next coup actually succeed. They design ballots to be as confusing as possible, and long lines make you feel rushed when you are in the voting booth. Here in the heart of Pennsyl-tucky a scheme to trick Democrats into voting for Trump repugs, for the School Board! The mailing was sent to Democratic voters by the Palmyra First political action committee, a PAC founded by conservative Republicans for conservative Republicans.
Mail-in Voting in PA
They don't vote. I don't remember who wrote the diary about PA mail-in ballots needing extra postage or they'd be returned. I had already sent mine in by then, and was fully expecting to get it back with a "please add postage you idiot" stamp on it. When several days passed and I hadn't received it, I checked the status. Just thought I'd share my experience and remind people you CAN (and should) check on the status of your ballot in any case.
These floods made the Snake River flow backwards! (Video) Chasing Lake Missoula Ep. 8
For the 8th episode of the Chasing Lake Missoula series, we take a bit of a detour! While the bulk of the Lake Missoula megafloods drained straight into the Columbia River, a separate branch flowed over and into the Snake River, forcing its waters to reverse course and flow into the east towards Lewiston. Another place with a breathtaking, wonder-filled history.
Wacky is as wacky does
“Ohio should ban all vaccine mandates.” ~ Republican Representative Jim Jordan – October 12, 2021Republican House member Jim Jordan who represents 700,000 ostensibly sensible, thinking men, women, and children in Ohio’s Fourth Congressional District, has decided Ohio “should ban all vaccine mandates,” not just COVID-19 vaccines advocated by overreaching Democrats who dare to want to save lives. However, Jordan and his anti-mandate colleagues in the House, Senate, and statehouses around the country are acting wacky because they’re afraid of losing power, privilege, and wealth to ‘others’ who do not look or sound like them. So, even though they are supposed to be democratically elected representatives of the people, they no longer feel any obligation, constitutional or otherwise, to think or act logically, reasonably, or truthfully. All they have to do is attack, deride, lie about, and oppose anything and everything proposed by any opponent, especially if that opponent happens to be a dastardly Democrat. In other words, all they have to do is act wacky.
Eroded trust in the media as an institution has consequences...ask Katie Couric!
I’ve always felt that our new media is just as much at fault for their coverage as they are for what they do not cover. I was usually pretty happy to listen to many major media representatives, one of which was Katie Couric, but have lost faith in the ability for many of these media ‘stars’ to be unbiased. By employing the sin of omission, the media protects its progressive heroes and, in the process, picks political winners and losers. Katie Couric was so careful not to do harm that she actually created a massive problem. Its no wonder many folks have lost faith in the news media with so much noodle soup being served up to the public these days.
China launched a hypersonic missile and it surprised the US Department of Defense.

China's new hypersonic missile demonstrated an advanced space capability that caught US intelligence by surprise, report saysChina demonstrated advanced space capability by testing a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile in August, the Financial Times reported, citing five sources familiar with the test. The hypersonic glide vehicle launched by the Chinese military circled the globe in low-orbit space before speeding towards its target, sources told the paper. "We have no idea how they did this," another source told the paper. News of the test comes amid increasing tensions between China and the US, as China increases its military activity near Taiwan.
New Day Cafe: Sunday Sass
Welcome, Cafe! Hope your Sunday is going well….we’re going to have a verrrry nice day, that seems more like autumn in these parts. I’ve learned not to trust the weather people in these parts...I think they might be (gasp) lying (gasp). There will be a few surprises along the way, all good ones, we hope. Trolls will be incinerated and served at the next group BBQ.

North Carolina Open Thread: This guy, Cops demand Freedumb, EPA steps in, Offshore wind, Cawthorn
Mark Robinson, they are “filth.”“Yes, I called it filth. And if you don't like it that I called it filth, come see me about it." Like other bullies called to account for their actions, he dodges, deflects and doesn’t, as he promised, take responsibility. At best, it is a cynical ploy to find a way to profit, at least politically, from his divisive rhetoric. Mark Robinson is an unapologetic antisemitic homophobe, and Sen. Berger is a staunch defender of child marriage.
Dawn Chorus: Endangered Birds Slipping Away to Extinction
There is such sobering finality in declaring a species extinct, yet I also see some pragmatic arguments for doing so. In this Dawn Chorus, I thought I’d introduce you to the 11 birds on the brink of bureaucratic extinction and ponder the pros and cons of delisting these endangered birds to ‘extinct’ status. Po`ouli or Black-faced HoneycreeperThe discussions/arguments FOR and AGAINST declaring these endangered birds extinct are nuanced and difficult. Delisting extinct species aids the USFWS in prioritizing scarce funding for rapidly declining endangered species and ecosystem-based projects with greater potential for recovery. Extinct species no longer meet the definition of an endangered or threatened species under ESA, thus removal is legally warranted.
Kyrsten Sinema, In Just Two Words, Illuminates The Ego Of Kyrsten Sinema
Literally volumes have been written about the disloyalty shown toward the Democratic party by two senators. Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, however, is different. As I reported in a profile of Sinema for the magazine, Sinema even protested outside of a Lieberman campaign event when the senator was running for president in 2003. That she likely believes she is overqualified shows just how naive she is about the responsibilities of the highest office. It seems Kyrsten Sinema loving herself some Kyrsten Sinema is the only thing she is actually qualified, to do.
Ole Miss assaulted in Tennessee home (stadium)
There was football game at the University of Tennessee. A major decision by the referees turned possession of the football to the Ole Miss Rebels. There was some controversy about the decision and the Tennessee fans let that fact be known. The Tennessee cheerleaders, dancing squad and marching band fled the stadium in fear during the bombardment. Tennessee teams (all sport venues) should not be allowed televised appearances for two seasons.
BASICS OF COVID ECMO—THE WHY AND THE HOW
It performs the function of a patient’s lungs allowing their lungs to heal, if they can. ECMO patients are hooked up to the machine using large bore cannulas and tubing. Blood gas testing is used to determine the level of O2 and CO2 in the blood. When an ECMO unit fails, we switch out the entire unit because the process is time critical. ECMO nursing is a highly skilled, specialized nursing and the pay is commensurate with the education, skills, and experience required.
Pollution: I'm so f**king fed up with the b*ll*hit. Some basic mathematics.
Air pollution is the leading environmental risk to health, costing the globe an estimated $8.1 trillion in 2019, equivalent to 6.1 percent of global GDP. 95 percent of deaths caused by air pollution occur in low- and middle- income countries. In individual countries, the economic burden of pollution associated with premature mortality and morbidity is also significant, equivalent to 5 to 14 percent of countries' GDPs. YetBiggest companies pay the least tax, leaving society more vulnerable to pandemicAndUS super-rich 'pay almost no income taxI wonder what they have in common? A pollution tax would cover it easily.
What diary hijackers don't understand about the seven most dangerous things from climate change.
The global warming emergency and its future is far worse than the government, the media, or the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC] are telling us. The rate of global warming consequences occurring will soon start rising exponentially. Now that critical global warming tipping points are already being crossed, many climate-related systems (like the Arctic sea ice, melting glaciers, oxygen-producing plankton, etc.) If we do not make the required 2025 global fossil fuel reductions in time to fix the global warming extinction emergency, without fail, Mother Nature will painfully do it for us! In a separate plea, One Humanity Org identifies the rapid approach of tipping points that should scare the beejeebus out of you.

Beyond that, they say he should throw himself into passing voting rights legislation and more aggressively go after states that are politicizing their election systems. Off-year and special elections are not always the best way to predict how elections will play out elsewhere in the country. And like Kartier, most of the victims were Black trans women, including Tierramarie Lewis and Diamond Kyree Sanders, who lived in Ohio, Chappelle’s home state. [...] More than 100 bills restricting trans rights have been introduced this year. Paul Krugman of The New York Times doesn’t have much of a problem with The Great Resignation, either.
Roll over, Beethoven: Chuck Berry’s in the house

Back in 1987, while the legendary rock and roll icon Chuck Berry was still alive and performing, the documentary Chuck Berry – Hail!

Anti-vaxx Chronicles: She wanted others to 'choke' rather than listen to reason. Fate stepped in
Given current death rates (with lots more Texans dying because of Abbott’s stupidity), Texas will soon overtake much-larger California in absolute deaths. Just two weeks later, Red was likely infected with COVID-19. Odds are good that COVID-19 didn’t care that Red had “a bite.”Red blessed Texas because Abbott outlawed mask mandates. Red left three kids behind. But the three kids she left behind … that’s the part that gets me.
The Ivermectin Story
The unrelenting opposition to using ivermectin to treat and prevent COVID-19 is stronger than ever. It has an average of 160 adverse events reported every year, which indicates ivermectin has a better safety record than several vitamins. And consider what former Director of Intellectual Property at Gilead Pharmaceuticals, Brian Remy, said about the necessity of implementing Ivermectin. Ivermectin used in combination with other therapeutics is a no-brainer and should be the standard of care for COVID-19. for misrepresentation of Ivermectin and other generics, but most importantly it would save countless lives and end the pandemic for good."
The State of the Covid in NYC and Beyond
OK, many are people with co-morbidities including endemic overweight/obesity, diabetes and pre-diabetes - practically a description of almost every American over 40. 78% of Covid patients are overweight, but so are over 70% of Americans, so that doesn't tell you much except the condition of most Americans is terrible. But, take a look at this local chart for NYC, ranking vaccination rates by age:NYC Vaccination Rate, by age(Image by Gothamist) Details DMCAThis is just NYC, but it's probably a reflection of the proportions in the rest of the country too, albeit higher in every group in vaccination-positive NYC.

Designer Vaginas: Is Female Circumcision Coming Out of the Closet?
What are labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction if not female circumcision? Not all ethnic groups in Africa practice female circumcision, though it is found in 28 of the continent’s 53 countries. Clitoral hood reduction is an operation which repositions the protruding clitoris and reduces the length and projection of the clitoral hood. At the end of the day, it looks like female circumcision and FGCS are done for very much the same reasons. So why has the West been demonizing “Africans and their barbaric culture of female circumcision” all these years?
The Oil Spill in California Lends Urgency to Demand for Indigenous Land Stewards
Now, tribal community members are actively working to reclaim and restore relationships with coastal lands and waters in this cultural corridor. These coastal lands and waters are essential to the cultural, spiritual and physical well-being of coastal Native nations. Tribal community members are actively working to reclaim and restore relationships with coastal lands and waters in this cultural corridor. Gavin Newsom officially apologized to California Native Americans for the state’s role in the attempted genocide of California Indian peoples and established the California Truth and Healing Council via Executive Order N-15-19. We must prioritize the phaseout of fossil fuels on land and water and end offshore drilling in our coastal waters.
Rikers’ Forceful Guard Union Is Deepening the Jail’s Humanitarian Crisis
Kathy Hochul declared a “disaster emergency” at Rikers Island. Nonetheless, it represented the latest acknowledgment from politicians of what incarcerated people and their supporters have been saying for months: Conditions at Rikers Island represent a humanitarian disaster. Health care is widely unavailable, and at least 12 people have died on Rikers Island this year. City unions became increasingly independent after Mayor Robert Wagner’s 1954 recognition of their legitimacy, legally codified in the 1967 Taylor Law. In August 1990, rank-and-file guards completely blocked the bridge to Rikers Island, cutting off nearly all access to the island.
Food Apartheid Threatens BIPOC Children’s Health. Food Sovereignty Is the Fix.
Food insecurity rates for African American, Latinx and Indigenous families are disproportionally high. One study found that, from 2000 to 2010, food insecurity among Indigenous people was around 25 percent. In her home city of Baltimore, schools provide a snack and supper program to provide food to children enrolled in after-school care. Community gardens provide food access, along with other local distributors like Common Market, Brooklyn Packers, and GrowNYC. Berhe-Lumax says this food access exists at the intersection of all broader social issues, including social, economic and racial inequalities.
FDA Warns of Carcinogens in ArtNaturals Hand Sanitizer
The FDA is advising consumers to avoid unscented ArtNaturals hand sanitizers, which contain “unacceptable levels” of benzene, acetaldehyde, and acetal. Consumers are urged to stop using ArtNaturals hand sanitizers immediately and throw the products away, ideally in a hazardous waste container. In an alert released on October 4, the FDA announced it had found “unacceptable levels” of benzene and other cancer- and irritation-causing contaminants in ArtNaturals hand sanitizers. The agency urges consumers to stop using all ArtNaturals hand sanitizers after multiple failed attempts to contact the California-based company. Consumers who own any ArtNaturals hand sanitizers—which have been sold on Amazon and at Walmart—should stop using them immediately, the FDA warns.
‘Project Runway’: Host Christian Siriano Talks Future of Fashion, Mentoring on the Series
After more than a decade in fashion, the Project Runway mentor and host who launched his eponymous womenswear brand in 2008, has redefined the red carpet rule book. It reminds me of when I was a little boy watching my sister dance or being backstage watching all the sugar plum fairies in The Nutcracker. I don’t always love the business end,” he chuckles, “but I love to celebrate beauty on the runway.”In 2008, Siriano and his vision took on Project Runway, where he became the youngest designer to win the fashion competition series. But since then Siriano has become so much more than a Project Runway winner. They’re like, ‘Wow, you have so many Black models on the runway.’ I’m like, ‘No, I always have.

This Year’s Oscar Race May Already Have a Diversity Problem
“Jamika and I break this glass ceiling with so much excitement,” said Neal in her acceptance speech. “I know that one day it won’t be unusual or groundbreaking—it will just be normal.”It felt like real progress. Even so, just 33% of current members are female and 19% are people of color, according to The New York Times. And as the 2022 Oscar race gets underway, it seems likely that there will once again be a significant lack of diversity, especially in the most high-profile categories. The possibility that the 2022 Oscars could be a step back in diversity is especially ironic because it’s the first year that requires the submission of a confidential Academy Inclusion Standards form for best-picture consideration.
Michael Caine Says His Latest Film Is His Last, But He's Not Retired
After six decades in the business, Michael Caine has earned his retirement. Appearing on BBC Radio’s Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review programme, the actor said that his current film Best Sellers is likely his last. The trade paper wrote that they had confirmed that Caine “is not fully retiring.” (V.F. One suspects that, with Christopher Nolan readying a biopic on J. Robert Oppenheimer, there might be room for at least a quick Caine cameo. (Who else but Michael Caine could sell a line like Interstellar’s “I will have solved the problem of gravity”?)
A Catastrophic Brain Injury Changed My Life. How Do I Piece It Back Together?
On the morning of 20 January 2020, only weeks before the pandemic turned the world upside down, I suffered a catastrophic brain injury. My brain injury, it turned out, was the result of a rare condition, an arteriovenous malformation (or AVM) – blood vessels connecting my arteries and veins had formed “incorrectly” in the womb. There were heroic doctors and nurses on standby; an expert brain surgeon, Dr Christopher Kellner was paged; my life was saved. When I was discharged, months later, the pandemic had rendered life unrecognisable – just as my brain injury had rendered me unrecognisable. Navigating the cognitive dissonance of the new world, of my new world, has been exhausting and distressing.
We Have Jessica Chastain To Thank For Full-Frontal Oscar Isaac in Scenes From A Marriage
The HBO drama Scenes From A Marriage is a penetrating and insightful look at the nuances, paradoxes and complexities of human relationships. It does, indeed, feature Oscar Isaac in his birthday suit, much to the surprise and delight of social media. When Isaac and co-star Jessica Chastain appeared on The View on Friday, it was to the hosts’s credit that they waited a full three minutes and forty-five seconds before bringing the matter up. You can watch the full clip from The View below (and see how Oscar Isaac reacts to Joy Behar’s term “Mr. Happy”), and read more with our interview with Hagai Levi.
How Do You Celebrate A Pregnancy While Grieving?
The first was with my husband, Cam, to get a clearer picture of the cancer that was killing him. This isn’t his baby, they’d be a toddler by now. We met when Cam was sick (through their mutual love of wrestling) and the three of us became inseparable friends. Bonded by grief and an awakening to the fragility of life, we nestled together on that trip, unplanned but feeling so right. A year later, our baby wasn’t mapped out either – not unplanned, but unexpected.

Tweakments 101: How To Get The Natural Look, According To The Experts
Why not try the “natural look”? Favoured by cosmetic doctors, the natural look has gained popularity in the past few years as cosmetic procedures evolve and beauty trends move away from the exaggerated features of reality TV stars towards something much more authentic and individual. “When we talk about the natural look we are talking about using aesthetic techniques and skill to adjust, balance and enhance a person’s unique look without it being detectable,” says Dr Wassim Taktouk. This can only be achieved with a subtle and natural approach.” It’s also a much safer option. So, how can you achieve the natural look?

Sarah Jessica Parker Has Found a New “Carrie Dress”
There are endless outfits from the original Sex and the City series that fans have committed to memory, but there’s one particular dress that stands out. The body-sculpting LBD (more charcoal than black, to be specific) that Carrie Bradshaw – aka Sarah Jessica Parker – wears in season two, episode 15 is nothing short of iconic. Glimpses of the new installment And Just Like That – which is currently being filmed in New York City – suggest that there’s another potential “Carrie dress” in the works. The dress (US $215 from Norma Kamali) is slightly longer, too: the hemline is just below the knee, whereas the original was a daring thigh-skimming mini.

What Fashion Can Learn from Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped
This season in Paris, the catwalks had to vie for attention for another kind of fleeting happening, the posthumous realization of the Christo and Jeanne-Claude artwork, L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped. Anatomy and skin were focus points throughout a season that seemed singularly focused on the reveal aspect of fashion. In their work, Christo and Jean-Claude reframed the familiar, and took art out of the frame and the museum. In light of the spring season, I was especially fascinated to learn that the first monument Christo ever wrapped was a classic (naked) sculpture in Rome’s Villa Borghese. As the impermanent but potent L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped shows us, imagination can take us to places that have no coordinates or urls.

Jenelle Evans: I Have a Perfect Face, Unlike That Goblin Chelsea Houska!
OK, so you know how Jenelle does that thing every so often where she tries to get into a feud with Chelsea Houska, even though Chelsea never acknowledges it and the feud exists solely in her own mind? The joke, of course, being that while Jenelle has tried to do some of the same things Chelsea has done, Chelsea is ultimately more successful. But to actually say the words "I have the perfect face" in any context is just an inconceivably douchey move, especially because the implication here is clearly that Chelsea does not have a perfect face. So this is essentially Jenelle saying that she's prettier than Chelsea, which is super rude. Congrats on that perfect face though, girl.

Alex Bishop and his Wild, Unprecedented Night
Bishop was thrust into action with the Leafs on Saturday night thanks in equal part to a Petr Mrazek injury and the harsh reality of the NHL salary cap. Ayres was in the building that night simply because it was his turn on the schedule to do so. But Bishop nonetheless relished his opportunity on Saturday night to leave a good taste in the fanbase's mouth when it came to emergency backups. Frankly, Bishop is not so much a fish out of water as he was just dropped into a bigger pond. "This is a pretty rare opportunity and not a lot of people get to experience moments like this," said Bishop.

'Watch out for Leo Boivin': Remembering a Hockey Star
Things were much different in the 1950s and ’60s when “watch out for Leo Boivin” became a common mantra as NHL coaches prepared their forwards for Original Six matchups. That’s not to say Boivin was a butcher carrying the puck. “Timing,” Boivin said, when asked about the science of the hipcheck. Some historians say Boivin was the link between the Eddie Shore and Bobby Orr eras in Boston. “Leo would say to him very politely, ‘Walter, please don’t try those silly dipsy-doodle moves on me in practice.

Georgia football: Behind defense, 2021 title is Bulldogs' to lose
ATHENS, Ga. — Seven suffocating Saturdays into the season, this is Georgia’s national championship to lose. This game Saturday, against undefeated Kentucky, was more competitive than most Georgia has played. The reason why it’s all but impossible to dent the ‘Dogs with a power running game is the mammoth presence of tackle Jordan Davis in the middle. Joshua L.

Deion Sanders, Jackson State Homecoming victory was a special one
Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders—on his blue scooter—quickly ushered his players into the Tigers locker room. Sanders, who like many of his players this week, was experiencing his first homecoming game in front of a record 53,578 people—the 10th largest game in JSU history. In the final quarter, the Tigers added a 21-yard touchdown run by JD Martin to seal a 28–7 victory and its first homecoming win since 2018. Sanders, who was swarmed with cameras leading up to the locker room, made a pit stop to talk to Marshall’s parents. Despite a week of practices in which the team did not perform well, Sanders earned his first homecoming win in true HBCU style.
Kentucky's timeout, late touchdown cover 21.5-point spread vs. Georgia
Condolences to those who picked Georgia to cover its 21.5-point spread against Kentucky. Although the Bulldogs walked away with a comfortable 30–13 win, the Wildcats decided to create some chaos in the final seconds.

Kirby Smart and Georgia will be more than happy to walk away at 7–0 and maintain their No. Those with money on the Bulldogs to cover, not so much.
Dodgers-Braves: Chris Taylor's blunder bungles Los Angeles' chance in Game 1
Los Angeles faced its best opportunity to win against Atlanta in the top of the ninth. Chris Taylor’s head was bare because a minute or so earlier, he had slammed his batting helmet to the ground after bungling the Dodgers’ best chance to win Game 1 of the National League Championship Series. Smith tried again. Taylor tried for third. This was always the game Atlanta was most likely to win: Atlanta started its ace on Saturday, while Los Angeles, which had used projected Game 1 starter Max Scherzer to close out NLDS Game 5, made do with a mix of relievers.
Ole Miss Narrowly Escapes Tennessee After Dodging Debris
To think, Ole Miss-Tennessee came down to the final play after dodging golfballs and debris. Lane Kiffin, who returned to Neyland Stadium for the first time as an opposing coach, and the Rebels survived Knoxville with a 31–26 win. The Rebels got the ball back, but the game then went into a lengthy delay as fans started throwing golf balls at Kiffin and debris at the Ole Miss sideline. The head coach, staff and players started dodging the projectiles before moving out onto the field. With just four seconds on the clock and no options open, the quarterback ran the ball for 13 yards as time expired.
Lane Kiffin: Tennessee fans launch debris at Ole Miss, halt game
What should have been a clean conference game between Ole Miss and Tennessee quickly descended into dangerous chaos on Saturday night. It missed him, but then came a cascade of debris was launched by Tennessee fans at their former head coach and the Ole Miss sideline—a mustard bottle, water bottles, beer cans, pizza boxes and much more. Tennessee's dance team and marching band had to leave the field, and Ole Miss moved onto the field out away from their sideline. He served as the head coach at Tennessee in 2009 before leaving after one season to take the same position at USC. Law enforcement and security around him lifted their hands over the head coach while ducking from the projectile while Kiffin one-handed it.

O'Connell ended the night with 375 yards, throwing two touchdowns and zero interceptions. But Iowa quarterback Spencer Petras tallied 195 yards and four interceptions—two of which came late in the contest with the game out of reach.
NFL Week 6 Preview: Geno Smith and the return you didn’t know you needed
* But Geno Smith would more appropriately be known as the guy who never got much of a chance. To be clear: Smith was subpar and far too reckless, but he was also young and raw. Smith doesn’t just have an opportunity to produce, the Seahawks desperately need him to in order to keep the season from getting away. He looked comfortable and confident against the Rams, and he has two All-Pro caliber receivers to work with. There’s no support, there’s no egos, there’s no rules in it, anyone can come after me for anything.
Braves-Dodgers: Austin Riley slams walk-off single for NLCS Game 1 win

Purdue-Iowa: Greg Long gives new meaning to 'hold my beer' in third quarter
What happens when a can of Bud Light lands on the field as an unranked team is on track pull off one of college football's greatest upsets over the No. Purdue offensive lineman Greg Long did what any (legal age) college student probably would do—opened it. Only he decided to pour it over his face instead of fully drink it, giving a new meaning to the saying 'hold my beer.' A fan tossed the alcoholic beverage onto the field during the third quarter as Purdue powered to eventually dismantle No. The 24–7 upset adds another historic victory for Purdue, which entered Saturday as the program with the most wins against an AP top-five team while unranked, per The Athletic's Matt Brown.

Is It OK to Torment Non-Player Characters in Video Games?
SUPPORT REQUEST: I’m playing a sim-style game, and the non-player characters that you deploy have particular skills, weaknesses, likes, and dislikes. Playing them tends to raise the sorts of questions that have long been taken up by theological and tragic literature. Ever since we humans started writing, it seems, we have suspected that we are pawns in the games of higher beings. Of course, non-player characters—NPCs—are just algorithms with no minds and no feelings, hence no ability to feel pain or discomfort. One advantage of speaking of preferences rather than pain is that whereas pain is entirely subjective, felt only to the person who is suffering, preferences can be observed.
Hollywood crews reach new deal with studios, narrowly avoiding a nationwide strike
Hollywood narrowly avoided a near-total shutdown as the union representing most of the industry's crew members reached a tentative agreement for a new three-year contract with the major studios late on Saturday. About 60,000 crew members had been poised to strike if a deal was not reached, which would have brought nearly all film and television production to a halt nationwide. This deal comes after months of negotiations and years of discontent over working conditions in the entertainment industry. This time, a remarkable show of unity from crew members may have helped them gain ground in negotiations. Now, crew members are poised to potentially see the substantive change they have hoped for for decades.

Watch Pete Davidson and Rami Malek Imitate Each Other on SNL
pic.twitter.com/BN37d8OClD — Saturday Night Live - SNL (@nbcsnl) October 17, 2021Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson has been mistaken for actor Rami Malek on at least one occasion, so it was only natural that last night’s episode featured the two playing each other. Malek, in his hosting debut, took on the role of Davidson in a sketch that felt a lot like Celebrity Jeopardy but was not, in fact, Celebrity Jeopardy. But the real stars of the sketch were Davidson and Malek, who fully committed to the role of his lookalike. Malek-as-Davidson insisting that he can’t sit next to Davidson-as-Malek because “his eyes are freaking me out” is particularly funny. Perhaps Davidson is the long-lost Malek triplet?

Tiffany & Co. to Mentor Young People on Creative Team
PARIS – In a sign of its reinvention under new owner LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co. is opening its creative team to young people from underprivileged backgrounds. She joined Tiffany in March from Revlon, where she served as senior vice president, creative director, and reports directly to Tiffany executive vice president of product and communications Alexandre Arnault. A seasoned creative, Abu-Nimah also worked in high-ranking roles at Elle magazine, Bobbi Brown and Shiseido. Though it is understood her role at Tiffany focuses more on creative vision than product development, the executive said creative direction all begins with craft. “It takes a long time to become a creative director, and the only way to become a good creative director is to develop a craft, and to also understand other people’s craft.
‘SNL’: Rami Malek, Keenan Thompson and Daniel Craig Compete in “Prince-Off”
Keenan Thompson, Rami Malek and surprise cameo guest Daniel Craig were jockeying against one another for the coveted role as Prince in a Jordan Peele-directed horror film/biopic during one of the more memorable sketches from the third episode of SNL’s new season. Thompson, Craig and Malek all played themselves, while Chris Redd took on the role as Peele with Punkie Johnson and Ego Nwodim playing casting directors. The skit began with Thompson and Malek being told to take part in a “Prince Off. As they were deliberating, Craig, who stars as James Bond in the franchise’s latest film No Time to Die opposite Malek, then took the stage dawning a medieval style getup, misunderstanding the sort of prince he’d be playing. The film faced multiple delays since then and finally came out last week.
‘SNL’: Rami Malek Embraces The Villain in Opening Monologue
Rami Malek made his SNL host debut for the show’s third episode of the season, with the Oscar-winning actor and latest Bond supervillain advocating for fellow cinematic antagonists during his opening monologue. “People tell me I have what’s called resting villain face,” Malek quipped before giving a faux-sinister stare to the audience. You’ve got Cruella, Maleficent, Bambi.”Leading up to his SNL spot, cast member Ego Nwodim teased Malek saying she didn’t see the “unnerving” quality of his eyes that others saw before the two entered a staring contest. He also noted that his siblings — his twin brother and sister — were both in attendance for the night’s show. They’ve devoted their lives to helping others… but I have an Oscar.”Malek’s hosting debut comes a week after the long awaited release of new James Bond film No Time to Die, where Malek plays main villain Lyutsifer Safin.
‘They Can’t Stop Everyone’: GOP Congressman Dangerously Encourages Kids to Defy Statewide School Mask Mandate
What could have been a simple high school government lecture on civic duty and participation from a local congressman instead became a Covid-19 misinformation fest worthy of a primetime slot on Fox News. Congressman Bob Good (R-Va.) encouraged a group of high school students to defy a statewide school mask mandate, and he spread lies about vaccines and how the virus spreads, the Rappahannock News reported. “If nobody in Rappahannock complies [with the mask mandate], they can’t stop everyone,” Good told a Rappahannock County High School government class of approximately 20 students this week.

Young Thug, Gunna and Nate Ruess Perform “Love You More” For Thug’s ‘SNL’ Musical Debut
For Young Thug’s SNL musical debut, the rapper brought out Gunna and Nate Ruess for a melodic performance of “Love You More,” their collaboration from Thug’s new album Punk. Thug also performed a raucous, punk rap performance of latest single “Tick Tock.” For both songs, Blink 182 joined Thug on stage behind the kit. Thug’s “Tick Tock” performance, with head-banging guitar and heroic drum fills, is reminiscent of when the rapper debuted the song during his NPR Tiny desk performance back in August. Young Thug released Punk, his second studio album, on Friday, featuring a slew of features from the likes of Post Malone, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Travis Scott, Future, Doja Cat, J Cole, and late rappers Juice Wrld and Mac Miller. Punk follows several popular releases for Thug including April’s Slime Language 2 and 2019’s So Much Fun, both of which topped the Rolling Stone 200 album chart.

VA-Gov: Hillary Clinton Helps Boost GOTV Efforts For Terry McAuliffe (D)
Terry McAuliffe (D. VA) & Hillary ClintonReceived this e-mail last night from former First Lady, Secretary of State, U.S. Help my friend Terry McAuliffe take on Donald Trump’s hand-picked candidate by signing up to volunteer for Democrats in Virginia today. We must unite behind a proven leader like Terry McAuliffe, who has taken on Republican extremism before — and won. Friendly reminder:Former President Barack Obama will campaign with fellow Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the final stretch of the Virginia governor's race. But at the grass-roots level, the messages from Virginia Democrats and Republicans are less distinct.
A farmhouse
One of the displays in the Cultivation and Conservation building of the Sherman County Historical Museum in Moro, Oregon, features a typical small farmhouse. During the 1930s, Sherman County towns were electrified, and it wasn’t until after World War II that farms were electrified. Electrical appliances made a huge difference in the lives of rural woman and their families. Farm children, like children in other areas, like to play games such as hopscotch. The farmhouse included walk-in cooler and freezer facilities.
Profit Mania, SWA’s Woes, Supply-Chain Bottlenecks, and our Brittle Economy
So the notion of private profit as the primary motivator for human striving is, as Mark Twain might say, greatly exaggerated. With lower labor costs, the owners could still make a profit while offering lower prices for their goods and services. The goal: let the profit motive cut prices to the bone and, at the same time, increase private profit. So China’s heavy-handed quest for global political supremacy is now at odds with its maintaining and growing its domestic economy as it recovers from Covid-19. We need more competent technocratic experts, endowed with the latest technology, who just want to make our economy work.

Can someone clearly explain the downside if only Democrats vote to raise the debt limit?
So far, however, I have not heard a clear explanation of why exactly it matters to Democrats if Republicans don’t want to participate in the vote to raise the debt ceiling. Why does voting to raise the debt ceiling so the U.S. can pay its obligations supposedly make Democrats in Congress look bad? Republicans have made it clear that they intend to filibuster an ordinary bill to raise the debt ceiling, as they did on Monday. And suppose Democrats win another round of brinksmanship and force a bipartisan vote on the debt limit: does anyone think that’s going to stop Republican politicians from casting Democratic politicians as taxers and spenders? 2-ranking Senate Democratic leader, on Tuesday dismissed a proposal to use the budget reconciliation process to raise the federal debt limit with only Democratic votes as a non-starter.
Climate Brief:Earth is dimming due to Climate Change-contributing to global warming
Specifically, there has been a reduction of bright, reflective low-lying clouds over the eastern Pacific Ocean in the most recent years, according to satellite measurements made as part of NASA's Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) projectAngmarThe dimming of the Earth can also be seen in terms of how much more solar energy is being captured by Earth's climate system. Once this significant additional solar energy is in Earth's atmosphere and oceans, it may contribute to global warming, as the extra sunlight is of the same magnitude as the total anthropogenic climate forcing over the last two decades. "It's actually quite concerning," said Edward Schwieterman, a planetary scientist at the University of California at Riverside who was not involved in the new study. For some time, many scientists had hoped that a warmer Earth might lead to more clouds and higher albedo, which would then help to moderate warming and balance the climate system, he said. "But this shows the opposite is true."

Joe Manchin is sacrificing our planet to save West Virginia: And Chuck Schumer doesn't seem to care

WOW2: October's Trailblazing Women and Events in Our History
October 19 , 1917 –During WWII, Salvation Army Ensign Helen Purviance and Captain Margaret Sheldon, two of the first eleven Salvation Army women to arrive in France, were stationed behind the American fighting lines at Monte-sur-Soux, France. She came home a national heroine, and used her celebrity to promote the Salvation Army, helping to set up Salvation Army posts in her hometown of Huntington, Indiana, and in Oswego, New York. She continued to make speeches, and often demonstrated making doughnuts at events, generating more positive press for the Salvation Army. Though she dreaded another war, when the U.S. entered WWII, Brigadier Helen Purviance trained the Salvation Army recruits for work in the field. A new treat was developed, the “All-American Cookie,” which could be made and packaged in Salvation Army kitchens at home, then shipped overseas.

Why are we playing by artificial rules with Manchin and Sinema?
We HAD a deal with Manchin and Sinema. If Manchin and Sinema want to gripe that they already had a deal with the Republicans, the House is NOT bound by it. If Manchin and Sinema don’t want to vote for cloture, that’s their prerogative. If they say that it wasn’t the Bill they sent to the House, legislation doesn’t work that way. Neither the House or Senate can dictate to the other what is brought to the floor, much less passed.
Religious beliefs differ widely; some can lead to antivaccination
These are people who identify as ethnic and culturally Jewish, but who do not belong to any religious organization, and do not observe any religious traditions. One might even fit Modern Orthodoxy into this category because it fits the same essential characteristic: We do not believe in an anthropomorphic, intercessional diety. Fundamentalists are the ones who believe in an intercessional diety, one who directly acts on the physical world. Virtually all of them believe in an intercessional diety. Time and again they get sick and die and their families think that they somehow must have displeased their intercessional God or Jesus.

A compendium of Sinema campaign ads
Sinema campaigns for the Senate on education, health care, and fair taxes. Here, Sinema assures Arizona voters that she will not sacrifice her progressive values. An insurance company front group thanks Sinema for a job well done. Sinema promises to power through gridlock. Sinema calls out these guys, one of whom is John McCain.
It's time to call Sinema's and Manchin's bluffs
Then he said all spending in the reconciliation bill would be subject to the Hyde Amendment (no public funds for abortion). Then she called the House Speaker’s actions to delay the vote on the infrastructure bill “inexcusable”. These two are not Democrats, so the President and the Senate Majority leader should threaten to force them out of the Democratic party. It’s time to threaten to remove that power from them and threaten to expose their venal selfishness as the full-blown Trumpism that it is. If they really want to be in the Democratic party, they will have to concede at least some of their pet positions.
WYFP? Tucker Carlson: we're all baizuos on this bus

Biden and Democrats are moving on to plan B
Biden is still optimistic a deal can be reached. I feel optimistic even if a deal cannot reached, Biden and Schumer/Pelosi will make Manchin/Sinema face 24/7 accountability voting to kill the bill. Biden has also mentioned he is ready to aggressive through executive/epa action just like the student loan forgiveness/debt erasure (referencing recent public loan forgiveness good news stories and $10,000 outright forgiving through EO). It is up to Biden show he is not someone who gives up and wants people to be reassured there are other ways. If Biden positively controls the next few weeks plus November, December, and January on aggressive student loan debt reform/relief, his approval ratings will be back to 50% by February.
Fake Anti-Vax Rock Critic Still Evades YouTube Ban-Leads More Direct Attack On Fauci, Unpunished
The fake rock critic YouTuber I’ve talked about the past continues to evade the YouTube ban, despite new rule changes, now having a more direct attack on Fauci, calling him, “Dr. Falsy.”And regardless of how you think about the Clapton imbroglio or how to think about him personally, this asshat’s response is beyond the pale, so the meat of this particular video is not about Clapton, but a lack of run on fragments saying, “was the Tuskegee Study a conspiracy theory?” “If Clapton is a racist, why has black musicians been in his band?”, “If science is settled, it’s not science because science evolves with skepticism and trial and error,” And “Why are you attacking Clapton, when Nicki Minaj is a bigger target with a bigger following, who matters more?”

Top Comments: Meteor Lands in Canadian Woman's Bed
From Scientific American:A woman in Canada narrowly missed being struck by a meteorite that crashed through her roof and landed on her pillow. Hamilton was luckier than Ann Hodges of Sylacauga, Alabama, who was also wakened by a meteor falling into her house in 1954. Scientists have not yet gotten their hands on the meteor, but Hamilton has sent it to Western University in Ontario for study. "We’re trying to reconstruct what the path was through the sky as it arrived," Phil McCausland, a geophysicist at Western University, said. Because it’s a rock that is older than the Earth, it may contain clues about the origin of the Solar System.
Anti-choice is semantic sleight of hand
Neither in the material world (or, if one prefers, in nature) nor in terms of a self is this entity individuated. This person has a web of existing and historical social relationships that anchor this person within a community. This person is individuated in every meaningful sense: in terms of awareness and the ability to survive without intervention. It is not a person—it is a potential person. This right to privacy has been upheld several distinct times by the Supreme Court, notably in Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965.

The children suffer: Texas' cruel abortion law is impacting rape victims as young as 9 years old
Sharon Grigsby, a reporter for the Dallas News, visited the center where staff members told her of recent pregnant rape victims as young as 9 years old. “They’re small, young, in a cute little T-shirt and rainbow shoelaces.”x Think it's rare that sexual abuse of children results in pregnancy? But the new Texas law eliminates the abortion option. What does this mean for the pregnant child rape victims who are showing up at the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center? If the Supreme Court once again allows the Texas law to remain in effect on a technicality, it will take months before there is any definitive court ruling.

Climate Change is Purely a Political Problem, The Tech to Address the Crisis Already Exists Part 2
The big joke in the small scale wind industry about the 3 main complaints of owners of wind turbines are:1: My tower is too short! Combined, these factors are why home wind power is relatively rare. It turns out that the why is that the grid is inadequate to redistribute wind power effectively enough to meet demand. Large wind turbines are arguably the least expensive electricity we can produce. So going back to our two broad categories of energy production, wind power is, hands down, best suited to Utility scale installations.

Manchin's response to Bernie's Build Back Better op-ed exposes his stark betrayal of West Virginians
Sen. Manchin, are West Virginians really more concerned about pharmaceutical industry profits than their own prescription drug costs? How dare you tell West Virginians how transformative the Build Back Better plan would be for them and their families? First of all, West Virginians have already decided what’s best for them, and it’s Biden’s Build Back Better agenda. In other words, Sanders, a Vermont liberal, is self-evidently more attuned to the needs of West Virginians than Manchin is. The senior senator from West Virginia is going to have to work on his deflections, because this one is just trash.

Trump Throws PSYCHO Tantrum Over Andrew McCabe's Pension and Hunter Biden's Paintings
Trump babbled that..."Isn’t it terrible that all of Andrew McCabe’s benefits, pensions, salary, etc., were just fully reinstated by the Justice Department? It was a purely political assault by Trump because McCabe was doing his job as a law enforcement professional, which a criminal like Trump couldn't abide.

What's more, Trump saying that he "always felt I have a talent" for art is so very Trump.
After news of travel restrictions to be eased, border shops ready to welcome back Mexican customers
University of Texas at El Paso professor of economics Tom Fullerton told El Paso Matters that the total economic losses stemming from the restrictions could total hundreds of millions of dollars. “At Simple Mobile, a cell phone store on El Paso Street near the international bridge, Mexican consumers made up 80% of sales, according to shop owner Miguel Lara,” El Paso Matters reported. “It’s been really hard,” he told El Paso Matters. “For too long, El Paso and all border communities have really suffered,” Escobar said in the report. “It’s great news that our ports of entry will be reopened for travel and business, which is the economic lifeblood of so many border communities,” former Housing and Urban Development Sec.
Anti-vaxx Chronicles: When they blame hospitals for not using ivermectin, instead of themselves
Prayer, like any mindfulness practice like meditation, can help lower stress, thus lowering system inflammation and strengthening the immune system. The virus triggers the immune system into releasing a flood of inflammatory proteins called cytokines. The immune system doesn’t recognize them as malicious because they look the same to them as healthy cells. It’s about training the body’s immune system to attack and kill malicious entities, be they external pathogens, or our own damaged cells. I really don’t see what’s so nefarious about last rites being done outside, where the family can more safely participate.

Women over 40 are being trampled by the COVID-19 economy, this week in the war on workers
Women over 40 have been particularly hard-hit by the COVID-19 economy—and, in this as in just about every other piece of bad economic news, Black and Hispanic women have had it the worst. Overall, 41% of women in this age group lost job-based income. But the pain was felt unequally: While 13% of white women and 14% of Asian women lost jobs, 23% of Latinas and 20% of Black women did. After these work interruptions, many women continue to be unemployed in the long term—for six months or more—or to be underemployed. Nearly a third of the women who had looked for work while over 40 cited age discrimination as a source of difficulty.

Thousands of public servants to get another chance at loan forgiveness in new settlement
The Education Department will automatically review applications rejected before November 2020 in cases where the applicant had made 10 years of payments on a direct loan. It will also increase transparency, letting people know how far they are from qualifying for loan forgiveness and what they have to do to finish qualifying. She had the classic story experienced by so many Public Service Loan Forgiveness applicants: After making 10 years of payments on what she thought was a loan that qualified her for the program while working a job that did qualify her, she was rejected for having the wrong loan. She will see more than $80,000 in loans taken off her shoulders thanks to the settlement. To be defrauded like that is not right, especially during a pandemic when I’ve been teaching in person every day.

He has originated and popularized the term "complex thinking," and his writing exemplifies this fresh approach to thought. Complex thinking can be thought of as a "kissing cousin" to critical thinking. Such a reform in thinking, Morin summarizes, implies a mental revolution "of considerably greater proportions than the Copernican revolution." Further Implications of Complex and Simplistic ThinkingMorin's complex thought does not provide a "quick fix'. Complex thought leads us to metacognition - it is not about an identification with our thoughts and their content, but rather observing how we think and why.

Despite Taliban Rule, Feminists Must Not Abandon Afghan Women
Since the Taliban took control of Kabul and the central government on August 15, efforts to support Afghan women have become extremely challenging. But does that position really help Afghan women? There's little question that gains made by Afghan women over the past 20 years, particularly urban women, have been rolled back -- at least temporarily. Even though Taliban spokesmen insist that women can continue to work, there are also frequent reports of Taliban militants ordering women to leave their workplaces. On October 6, the 45,000-member Afghan Teachers Association put out an urgent appeal calling attention to their dire situation.
Manchin Lashes Out After Sanders Condemns Obstruction of Biden Agenda
Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia lashed out Friday after a major newspaper in his home state published an op-ed by Sen. Bernie Sanders that called out Manchin’s obstruction of his own party’s Build Back Better reconciliation package. “Congress should proceed with caution on any additional spending and I will not vote for a reckless expansion of government programs,” Manchin said in a statement shared on social media. “No op-ed from a self-declared Independent socialist is going to change that,” he added. “Poll after poll shows overwhelming support for this legislation,” wrote Sanders. Two Democratic senators remain in opposition, including Sen. Joe Manchin.” The other is Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona.
5 Charts Show How Tax Reform Can Tackle Bad Corporate Behavior
Here we highlight corporate tax proposals in play on Capitol Hill that are designed to discourage corporate tax dodging and offshoring, excessive CEO pay, and wasteful stock buybacks.

U.S. Extradites Key Financial Ally of Venezuela’s President
BOGOTÁ, Colombia — A top ally of Venezuela’s authoritarian government has been extradited to the United States, one of his lawyers said Saturday, where he will face money laundering charges in Florida. The extradition of Alex Saab, a Colombian businessman and financial fixer for President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela, represents a victory for the U.S. government, whose efforts to remove Mr. Maduro have faltered in recent years.

Mr. Durst faces a possible murder indictment in New York in connection with the disappearance of Kathie Durst. Preliminary data from the study showed that the antibody levels of those who had gotten a Johnson & Johnson shot followed by a Moderna booster rose 76-fold within 15 days, whereas the antibody levels of those who had received a Johnson & Johnson booster rose only fourfold in the same period.
