Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson just leveled up their relationship with matching bleach-blonde hair
Relationships and bleach blonde hair have one thing in common: though they both may take a bit of effort to maintain, if you do things right, all that work is worth it. And while Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have been dating since last fall, it appears they've now decided to tackle hair-care maintenance as a couple together, as well. That's right: Less than a month after Kardashian stepped onto the 2022 Met Gala red carpet with a new, bleach-blonde look, Davidson has gone blonde, as well. In a series of three videos on Kardashian's Instagram stories Sunday night, fans got a peek at Davidson's new hair color.

Top Gun: Maverick breaks box office records
More conservative types may have worried that Tom Cruise suiting up as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in Top Gun: Maverick was a “ride into the danger zone” of obsolesce. The movie’s success didn’t stop at our nation’s borders (proudly defended by our naval aviators with callsigns like Maverick, Rooster, Hangman, Phoenix, Fanboy, and, uh, Bob.) It earned a reported $124 million, which by my math makes $280 million. Top Gun: Maverick, which co-stars Miles Teller, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Connelly, Monica Barbaro, and a special appearance by Val Kilmer also has a stratospheric 97 per cent from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Tom Cruise has spoken many times about his insistence on delaying the movie during the pandemic in favour of a theatrical release.
The 10 best active ingredient sunscreens to help protect you from summer heat
Your best bet at protection is consistency—a sunscreen you like and therefore reach for every day. Sunscreens filter most (but not all) UVA and UVB radiation. By filtering, sunscreens also slow down the skin ageing process, including the appearance of sunspots, pigmentation and wrinkles. Pick a sunscreen of SPF 30 and above and look for certification that assures protection against UVA and UVB radiation (usually labelled Broad Spectrum or PA+++). Dr Sheth’s Ceramide and vitamin C sunscreen SPF 50+ PA +++
This is Kriti Sanon's favourite hot summer trend
While summer’s sunny days make bright colours an obvious choice, tomato red hues are this year's biggest trend. Brandon Maxwell, Carolina Herrera, Valentino, and many more are embracing this punchy shade which is quickly becoming this season's must-have tone. Recently the actor seems to have picked up a certain proclivity for the shade of red. Wearing mini dresses to traditional sharara sets, all coloured in red, Sanon is making a strong case for wearing this shade head-to-toe. In a sharara and jacket set by Ritika Mirchandani, Sanon recently posted a picture of herself on Instagram while promoting her upcoming movie, Bachchhan Paandey.

15 Outfits That Prove Kendall Is The Most Fashion-Savvy Kardashian
It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 15 years since Keeping Up With The Kardashians hit our television screens and introduced us to what has become one of the world’s most famous families. The second-youngest of the clan, Kendall Jenner, may have been introduced as a cute 11-year old in season 1, but, fast forward to 2022 (via a modelling deal and numerous runway appearances), and she has well and truly secured her position as the most fashion-savvy sister.

This Scalp-First Haircare Line Is Here To Shake Up Wash Day
“Wash day is a ritual that is synonymous with the Black consumer – it’s a time that you’ve carved out of your day to pamper yourself,” superstar hairstylist Cyndia Harvey tells me over Zoom. A visual exploration of traditional hairstyles and diasporic identity, it is a beautiful celebration of textured hair (and its heritage) in all its forms, from sculptural styles to beaded, braided and bound. “T.H.O.M was an evolution of that idea, which was all about celebrating textured hair in its purest form,” Harvey says. “It was an ode to who I am, the people I grew up around, and who I’m friends with now. T.H.O.M is a destination where textured hair comes to be – we’re here to celebrate you and accept you for exactly who you are.”

Amazon Style Opens Its Very First Store Powered by Technology
LOS ANGELES — The new Amazon Style store, the first brick-and-mortar apparel outpost for the behemoth online shopping company based in Seattle, looks like every other clothing store in a mall. The one thing that makes this 30,000-square-foot store different from others is one thing: technology. “We are making it more inspiring, personalized and convenient for each customer,” said Simoina Vasen, vice president of Amazon Style. Another store distinction is there is not more than one sample of an item on the rack or shelf. Vasen wouldn’t discuss future plans for Amazon Style stores, which will undoubtedly add to Amazon’s annual apparel sales estimated by Wells Fargo to be $41 billion.

School Board in Tennessee Bans Teaching of Holocaust Novel ‘Maus’
A school board in Tennessee voted unanimously this month to ban “Maus,” a Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel about the Holocaust, from being taught in its classrooms because the book contains material that board members said was inappropriate for students. According to minutes of its meeting, the 10-person board, in McMinn County, Tenn., voted on Jan. 10 to remove the book from the eighth-grade curriculum. “There is some rough, objectionable language in this book,” said Lee Parkison, the director of schools for McMinn County, in eastern Tennessee, according to minutes of the meeting. Art Spiegelman, the author of “Maus,” said he was baffled by the decision. “This is disturbing imagery,” he said in an interview on Thursday, which is Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Is fast fashion impossible to kill?
You might’ve thought that harkened the death of fast fashion, as a new generation of consumers has begun to shun its wastefulness—embracing, in its place, secondhand clothing as a planet-friendlier wardrobe—but according to vintage reseller ThredUp, that’s not quite true. While Gen Z’s heart is in the right place, fast fashion is still hard to quit. According to the report, 72% say they shop fast fashion because it’s “good value for the money,” and another 20% say they feel pressured to have the latest styles due to social media. Secondhand shopping is a treasure hunt, but unearthing a gem that’s the right look, size, quality, and price takes time—meanwhile, 53% of shoppers say they choose fast fashion because it’s, well, faster. Much like any addiction, 42% say fast fashion is a bad habit that’s hard to break.
Amazon warehouse workers claim victory in historic vote to form company’s first union

Bobbi Brown vs. a TikTok Influencer
Photo-Illustration: by The Cut; Photos:@justbobbibrown, @meredithduxbury/TikTokIf you, like me, spend most of your time online trying to unpack niche dramas, it’s likely you have been trying to decode a number of cryptic tweets alluding to makeup artist Bobbi Brown and an influencer on TikTok. On Monday, May 17, Bobbi Brown, the makeup artist who probably taught you how to do makeup via her books, posted the video above to TikTok. Well, a number of eagle-eyed commenters and Twitter users pointed out this was not a seemingly random video but in fact one shading another TikTok user’s video. Now we’re sure Brown was just poking fun at Duxbury, but “Bobbi Brown shading” brings up more results on this on Twitter than any contour technique. We also agree with the general consensus of Twitter users that assure even if Brown were jokingly shading us, we’d have to log out for the day.

Domino’s senior vice president of brand and innovation, Kate Trumbull, says Netflix reached out in early 2021 to gauge the brand’s interest in a collaboration for the new Stranger Things season. To actually place an order using the mind-ordering app, much like its zero-click version, you do need a Pizza Profile with an existing saved Easy Order.

Why this startup is encouraging employees to microdose psychedelics at work
Some employees at the mushroom coffee brand MUD\WTR are taking it one step further, adding small amounts of hallucinogenic mushrooms to their morning brew. But MUD\WTR does support employees who want to microdose magic mushrooms at work. “Seeing that, reflecting on how psilocybin microdosing has impacted my life in a much more positive way than caffeine or alcohol ever could have, I decided to make an open statement to our team,” he says. Several studies have shown cognitive and emotional benefits and even found subtle changes in brain activity in people who microdose. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Fortune, Scientific American, and more.

How to use Alexa as a $30 medical alert system
After a little digging around, it became apparent that there are a couple of ways to give Dad an emergency alert system. You’ll need to get the Alexa app running on the phone of the person for whom you’re setting this up. (I have the Alexa app on my phone and several Alexa devices in my own home.) Once you’re in the Alexa app, you’ll notice an “Add as Emergency Contact” option in there as well. Other than that, we’ve got a whole-home medical alert system set up for less than a hundred bucks.
Whisper it – but perhaps the UK stockmarket deserves to be cheap
The UK market has had a rough decade The UK has outperformed all comers this year. The globalisation of businesses has also made overseas companies, particularly American, much more familiar. The classic explanation of the UK’s poor historic performance is that it is a “value” rather than a “growth” market. Nick Train, manager of Finsbury Growth & Income Trust, asks “are UK companies undervalued?” pointing to four growth companies in the UK that trade on far lower valuations than overseas comparators. There is an alternative explanation which is uncomfortable for Train and all UK investors; that UK shares are undervalued for a very good reason.

Mining valuable insights from diamonds
Li’s passion for the skies has since taken a more earthbound and microscopic form: It has translated into a love of quantum physics. Quantum leapsThe primary thesis driving quantum information science is that altering the state of a material at a subatomic level can make a significant impact at much larger scales. An aspect of Li’s research focuses on defects in very small diamonds, some of which are on the nanometer scale. It was research at Berkeley — he remembers the university library and dining halls fondly — that cemented his love of quantum physics. If you learn about how this tiny thing works, you can maybe also learn how the bigger things work,” Li says.
Finding Joy and Friendship in a Pandemic-Induced Hobby
Today, the rise of social media, and specifically Instagram, has propelled the activity to “cool” status among millennials and Gen Zers. Generation ZenA few years ago, I decided enough was enough with endlessly scrolling my social media feeds. Ironically, during one of my mindless scrolling sessions, I saw a needlepoint canvas that read, “I am not for everyone.” I laughed aloud and found myself in the black hole of cheeky needlepoint designs. I helped them learn more about the social media platform that was catapulting other LNS’s like Lycette Designs in Palm Beach to viral success. What has expanded, though, is the breadth and depth of the needlepoint community because of social media.

Heddy Honigmann, Whose Films Told of Loss and Love, Dies at 70
She was 70. Her sister, Jannet Honigmann, who confirmed the death, said Ms. Honigmann had been ill with cancer and multiple sclerosis. In the economic chaos of Peru in the 1990s, when the government nearly bankrupted the country and inflation soared, many middle-class people began moonlighting as taxi drivers, slapping a “Taxi” sticker on their Volkswagen Beetles or battered Nissans to signal that they were on call. Ms. Honigmann collected their histories in the 1995 film “Metal and Melancholy,” riding in the back seat of more than a dozen cabs whose drivers included a teacher, a police officer, an actor and an employee at the Ministry of Justice. She took more than 120 taxi rides to find her subjects.
Rangers Hand Hurricanes First Home Loss of the Playoffs to Advance
The question entering Monday night wasn’t whether the Rangers could win an elimination game or a high-stakes Game 7; it was whether they could beat the Carolina Hurricanes away from Madison Square Garden. The Rangers’ rather magical N.H.L. playoff run has, for the first time since 2015, carried them into the Eastern Conference finals, where, as they did then, they will play the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Julie Anderson, the director of emergency management for Douglas County, Minn., said there were no immediate reports of significant injuries or deaths in Forada, about 135 miles northwest of Minneapolis.

Shanghai is poised to ease restrictions as infections fall.
The digital design studio ustwo relocated during the pandemic from Lower Manhattan to Brooklyn, where about two-thirds of its employees live. But remote work has fundamentally reshaped the way people work and diminished the dominance of the corporate workplace. Managers embraced flexible work arrangements, letting employees decide when they want to work in person. Before the pandemic, workers in New York City had the longest one-way commute on average in the country, nearly 38 minutes. Before the pandemic, office towers sustained an entire ecosystem of coffee shops, retailers and restaurants.
Ukraine Live Updates: E.U. Deal on Oil Will Cost Russia Billions of Dollars a Year
Ukraine produces around 12 percent of the world’s wheat, 15 percent of its corn and half its sunflower oil.

Inside the fight over the fastest-growing sport: Pickleball
The announcement, from USA Pickleball (heretofore USAP), incited a bevy of questions, such as: Wait, there’s a pickleball hall of fame? To wit:There exist two international—feuding—governing bodies: the relatively venerable International Federation of Pickleball (IFP) and the renegade World Pickleball Federation (WPF). And two domestic professional tours: the Association of Pickleball Professionals (APP) and its mirror-acronym rival, the Professional Pickleball Association (PPA). To even be considered an Olympic sport pickleball would need a minimum of 75 USAP-type national governing bodies across the hemispheres. “You can fit four pickleball courts on one tennis court, and four pickleball players [each] versus two tennis players.

Schröder posted a picture on his Instagram story of a massive Celtics tattoo on his thigh. The point guard was dealt along with Enes Freedom and Bruno Fernando to Houston in exchange for Daniel Theis. He played 15 games for the Rockets where he averaged 10.9 points and 5.9 assists per game. It was already his third NBA team at that point. It’s unclear at what point he got the tattoo, but it is clear who he’ll be pulling for in this year’s NBA Finals.

Ukrainian Tennis Player Opens Up About Difficulty of Competing Amid Russian Invasion
“For me, personally, it’s tough to be here,” Tsurenko said, “just because I don’t get much words said about the support of my country. And it’s just tough to be with people who look like they don’t understand. ... I’m Ukrainian, and there’s a war in my country, and it’s tough. Like, I don’t really put pressure on myself. “I think when it’s not in your country, you don’t really understand how terrible it is.”
Novak Djokovic puts on convincing first-round show at French Open
Novak Djokovic won his first-round match Monday at the French Open. Playing in his 18th French Open, Djokovic hasn’t lost before the quarterfinals since 2009. Djokovic’s return to the French Open on Monday marked his first Grand Slam appearance since the 2021 U.S. Open men’s singles final. Two weeks ago, Djokovic was without a title in 2022, without match play, without form and without confidence. Djokovic won the subsequent point and roared even louder.

Rising star Carlos Alcaraz saved a match point in the fourth set and erased an early deficit in the fifth to overcome Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-1, 6-7 (7), 7-5, 6-7 (2), 6-4 at Roland Garros. He is the youngest player to break into the top 10 of the ATP rankings since Rafael Nadal in 2005. But he was quite close to making a quicker-than-anyone-expected exit against fellow Spaniard Ramos-Vinolas, a 34-year-old who is ranked 44th. Alcaraz was a point from losing while Ramos-Vinolas served for the victory at 5-4 in the fourth set. Eighty minutes later, after trailing 3-0 in the fifth, Alcaraz earned his first match point and converted it with an ace.
Andy Murray Hits Back at Naomi Osaka After Her ‘Exhibition’ Comment Regarding Wimbledon
In response, the ATP announced that there would be no ranking points allowed at Wimbledon this year. Players like Roger Federer and Serena Williams are expected to lose their world ranking whether they play at Wimbledon or not. This decision caused some tennis players, including Osaka, to wonder whether playing in Wimbledon is even worth it if it can’t help their world ranking at all. “I’m not sure why, but If I play Wimbledon without points, it’s more like an exhibition,” Osaka said, via The Guardian. “I follow golf very closely and have no idea how many ranking points the winner of the The Masters gets,” Murray said in his Twitter thread.
Carlos Alcaraz survives French Open test, but how far will his game take him?
PARIS — Four days into the French Open, here are some early thoughts and answers to some of your questions. That was fine, but I wonder why the French Open starts on a Sunday? Joan, IndyI like your use of “fine.” The French Open has started on Sunday for 20 years now, but it began as a “soft open,” as they say in restauranting.

Irina-Camelia Begu Throws Racket at French Open, Causes Stoppage
The umpire checked on the child, while a supervisor came onto the court and handed Begu a code violation for unsportsmanlike conduct. After the match, Begu apologized to the child and took photos with the family. “Well, it’s an embarrassing moment for me. So I’m just going to say again, sorry for the incident and, yeah, it was just an embarrassing moment for me. We are responsible for our racket.”Technically, Begu only received a warning for her code violation because it was her first known violation of this sort.
‘Miss,’ ‘Mrs.’ Dropped From Wimbledon Champion Honor Board
For her earlier titles in 1974 and 1976, before that marriage, she was listed as “Miss C.M. Williams.”That conforms to the style that always has been in use for men: 2021 champion Novak Djokovic is listed as “N. The first women’s champion was not crowned until 1884. The removal of “Miss” and “Mrs.” from the honor board follows the change in 2019 to the way Wimbledon chair umpires refer to female players during matches. When Wimbledon began paying players at the outset of the professional era in 1968, women’s singles champion Billie Jean King took home a little more than a third of what was earned by men’s champion Rod Laver.

The 2018 Roland-Garros champion confirmed her panic attack was not the result of a medical condition before expressing her optimism for the future.
Coco Gauff Advances to Quarterfinals at French Open
PARIS (AP)—Quite a trip to Paris in the springtime for 18-year-old American Coco Gauff: She celebrated graduating from high school—an achievement saluted via social media by former first lady Michelle Obama — and now is into the French Open quarterfinals for the second consecutive year. Learning as she goes, Gauff took control of a tight opening set against No. A 2021, she was the youngest French Open quarterfinalist in 15 years, but frittered away five set points in the opener of a loss to eventual champion Barbora Krejcikova. That stuck with her Sunday, when she was in a back-and-forth first set against Mertens that was 4-all before Gauff got going. “I’m super thankful for that message...What really meant a lot: It wasn’t about the tennis, it was about my education,” Gauff said.
Time Set for Rafael Nadal-Novak Djokovic French Open Quarterfinal
Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will meet Tuesday in a headliner French Open quarterfinal match that will captivate the tennis world once again. Djokovic has cruised through his matches leading up to this point in the French Open, as the world No. 1 has yet to drop a set in his four matches in Paris.

Trevor Lawrence’s Christian Kirk Quote Hints at His Potential
Happy Memorial Day, everyone …Lawrence: Robert Scheer/USA TODAY NETWORK; Waller: Kirby Lee/USA TODAY Sports; Trubisky: Charles LeClaire/USA TODAY Sports• This quote from Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence caught my eye. It’s on new Jaguars receiver Christian Kirk, and on the surface it seems relatively benign. “Just from a football IQ sense, I think he’s really quarterback friendly,” Lawrence said in his press conference. “The way he sees the field, different coverages unfold, the way he runs his routes, I just think he’s quarterback-friendly. And then obviously his speed is something that we really needed and it’s going to help us a lot.
Nick Castellanos Interrupts Another Serious Moment With Home Run (Video)
Another day, another instance of Nick Castellanos hitting a home run during a serious broadcast moment on a baseball television broadcast. Castellanos’s sixth home run of the season came just mere seconds after Philadelphia broadcaster Tom McCarthy finished a Memorial Day tribute to American veterans. Although obviously unintentional, Castellanos seems to have a penchant for interrupting significant broadcast moments. It all began in August 2020 when Castellanos hit a home run as Thom Brennaman was apologizing for saying an anti-LGBTQ slur on the air during a game between the Reds and the Royals. It’s unclear if Castellanos has any idea about his knack for individual success during awkward broadcast moments, but it seems like his actions are becoming less of a trend and more like the norm.

Liz Cambage Denies Directing Racial Slur at Nigerian Players Before Olympics
During the ensuing fight, Cambage reportedly called the Nigerian players “monkeys” and told them to “go back to your third-world country,” per testimony given by anonymous Nigerian players present at the scene. “The incident that took place during the pre-Olympic scrimmage with the Nigerian team was handled privately, almost a year ago,” she began. “I did not use the racial slur towards the Nigerian team that has been circulating.”Cambage then provided her version of events leading up to and after the scrimmage. We did not have professional referees to manage and prioritise both teams’ safety during this highly physical scrimmage. “I genuinely apologised to the Nigerian team and I once again, am sorry that these events are being rehashed.
Messi: Benzema deserves Ballon d’Or, ‘there is no doubt’
BUENOS AIRES (AP) — According to Lionel Messi, there is “no doubt” that Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema deserves to win his first Ballon d’Or award this year. Benzema was also the top scorer in the Spanish league as Madrid won the title in dominant fashion. “There's no doubt, it’s very clear that Benzema had a spectacular year," Messi said in an interview to Argentine TV channel TyC Sports when asked if Benzema should get the prestigious award. “Out of the blue they score against you, and the match changes automatically,” Messi said about this Madrid team. That doesn't mean we are the favorites to be world champions or any of that.

Kim Kardashian just wore a totally sheer bodystocking under a co-ord, and it's everything
Kim Kardashian just combined two of our favourite looks right now: sheer *everything*, and a good old-fashioned co-ord set. We've seen all the celebs opting for sheer, mesh and see-through looks in recent months, from Megan Fox's sheer leopard-print mini dress, to Khloé Kardashian's see-through corset gown, plus Ashley Graham jumping on the mesh top trend. Now, Kim has taken things to the next level with a full-body sheer bodystocking, coupled with a bedazzled bra and miniskirt co-ord set, and the combo is everything. The head-to-toe sheer look sees Kim rocking a black mesh turtleneck bodystocking, with the silver jewelled co-ord paired over the top - and the low-rise mini skirt is giving us major '90s vibes. Ever the fan of a cryptic caption, Kim wrote on Insta alongside the pic, "Bad News - Nothing lasts forever.

Ivanka Trump is seen taking a walk with husband Jared Kushner and their children on June 12, 2021, in Miami, Florida. After Trump failed to prolong his presidency through extralegal means, Jared and Ivanka decided to leave Washington. And it seems the couple haven’t escaped neighbor drama — though this time, they might not be the real source of the problem. … “You’re standing right next to the sign,” the neighbor told Ivanka. Jared and Ivanka have done plenty that warrants legitimate criticism, from flouting various ethical rules to enabling the Trump administration’s terrible policies.
Why William and Kate will miss Lilibet's first birthday with the Queen
What's more, it's thought that Lilibet's birthday on 4th June will also coincide with her first meeting with great-grandmother the Queen (who she's named after), making the day even more special. However, it looks like there will be some members of the Royal Family missing from Lilibet's birthday celebrations/her and the Queen's first meeting - as William and Kate are set to be absent. William and Kate, on the other hand, are set to head to Wales, meeting performers and crew taking part in the Platinum Jubilee Celebration Concert in the grounds of Cardiff Castle. Due to their prior engagement, it looks as though the Cambridges will be missing out on Lilibet's birthday celebrations and her first intro to the Queen - unless they travel back to Windsor in the evening, that is. Here's hoping William and Kate will be able to see little Lili and Archie very soon!

The rapper, who recently welcomed his first child with Rihanna, displayed an impressive knowledge of kids’ shows while discussing fatherhood in an interview with Dazed. “I’m not trying to describe a saint, but realistically, I just want a cool child with cool parents,” he said. According to Rocky, he’s “wrapping up” the new album now, and has been shooting “so many visuals for it.” Imagine if a certain family of cartoon sharks were to make a featuring appearance!

‘We Own This City’ Miniseries, Episode 6 Recap: ‘Part Six’
Change is promised and not delivered, but surrender is not an option, despite The Onion declaring drugs to be the winner of the drug war about 25 years ago. What does a good person do when they’re searching for justice in a fundamentally unjust situation, whether it’s the drug war or the war in Iraq or segregated housing in Yonkers? (Which becomes even more insidious when Jenkins leaves it out of his guilty plea after Suiter dies and cannot defend himself.) He tells the FBI, “I’m one of the most talked-about, most celebrated officers in the history of this city.

Activist Investor Nelson Peltz Takes a Seat on Unilever’s Board
LONDON – In a widely anticipated move, the activist investor Nelson Peltz has become a non-executive director of Unilever, and a member of its compensation committee, sending Unilever’s shares up 7.5 percent to 37.58 pounds in early morning trading. Peltz is the billionaire CEO and a founding partner of Trian Fund Management, an activist hedge fund. At one point, Unilever’s share price spiked 6 percent on reports that Trian had taken a stake in the company. It is also expecting Peltz and the Trian team to urge Unilever to split into independent operating units. The British media reported earlier this year that Peltz and his team could easily take a similar approach at Unilever.
The Mona Lisa Was Literally All Caked Up With Nowhere to Go
Per the Associated Press, a man threw cake at the glass surrounding the Mona Lisa on Sunday, May 29.

An investigation into to the damage of cultural artifacts has been opened, although the Mona Lisa itself wasn’t damaged. Still, we’re sure it was distressing for any museumgoers to have their view temporarily obstructed by splatters of cream.

After confirming her full name is indeed Amber Laura Heard, the “Aquaman” star revealed to the general public that she currently resides in Yucca Valley, California. Dirt was curious to learn more about the Yucca Valley digs. Located deep in California’s San Bernardino County, Yucca Valley is a town of 20,000 people. The nearest “major” destination is Joshua Tree National Park, roughly 10 miles due east, though the city is also 27 miles north of Palm Springs and 55 miles east of San Bernardino. Certainly one could argue there is a peculiar beauty to Yucca Valley’s desert landscape, in all its untamed natural glory.

The Biden Administration Is in No Rush to Help Ukraine Negotiate an End to the War
Three months in, the war in Ukraine has reached a state of paradox. “I think there was an enormous opportunity lost to explore the possibility of a neutral Ukraine,” Menon says about this period. So has fellow NATO member Turkey, which brokered peace talks between Kiev and Moscow in March. Still, it’s remarkable that a Western leader traveled to a war-torn country to try to scuttle progress on a diplomatic settlement to end hostilities. Experts told Jacobin they were skeptical that victory for either side was possible, and that the most likely outcome was a bloody stalemate — making the task of pursuing peace talks even more important.
Top Weapons Companies Boast Ukraine-Russia Tensions Are a Boon for Business
Anti-war campaigners warn that U.S. escalation, amid renewed tensions between Ukraine and Russia, could bring dire consequences, and spill into a much larger and more protracted war. ?“Who will most likely set up and teach the Ukrainian army how to use these weapons systems? The U.S. military.”Among those openly discussing the boon to profits is Raytheon CEO Greg Hayes. And of course, the tensions in Eastern Europe, the tensions in the South China Sea, all of those things are putting pressure on some of the defense spending over there. ?“They are cashing in on tensions over Ukraine as the U.S. pours weapons into the region.”General Dynamics, meanwhile, has noted that past tensions have increased demand for the company’s products.
Memorial Day Massacre of 1937 Offers Stark Reminder: Media Usually Side With Corporations, Police
Other major media interpreted photos and newsreel footage as confirming the scenario of a hysterical mob attack on the police. Republic Steel was rapidly advancing out of the Depression, with its profits climbing. [The Memorial Day Massacre illustrates] how labor and its allies engineered a re-reading of news imagery first employed by Chicago officials and Republic Steel executives to condemn workers’ activism. The LaFollette report created sensational headlines and widespread condemnations of Republic Steel, and a vast tide of public sympathy for the union movement. Essentially, the major media remain almost as remote from the lives of working people as Colonel McCormick’s Tribune was from the reality of the Republic Steel strike and the ensuing massacre.

"GOP put giant fetus photo on Senate floor, but won't look at photos of babies killed by AR-15s"
“I’ve seen what these weapons do to adult bodies, let alone little babies’ bodies,” said Senator Tammy Duckworth in a Chris Hayes interview on 5/26/2022. “And you know, these colleagues of mine, at the drop of a hat, put a blown-up giant poster of a fetus on the floor of the Senate. Hayes started by saying there is a “learned helplessness” about dealing with gun control, and asked Duckworth how she felt. “I’m calling for us to suspend the filibuster and pass sensible gun legislation at the 51 vote threshold,” she replied. That’s the bottom line here.”For those of you who believe that Democrats will be unable to suspend the filibuster, that’s certainly a possibility.
Conversion therapy for fascist ammosexuals?
German said that “US law enforcement is failing, as it long has, to provide victimized communities like Buffalo's with equal protection under the law. Despite a clear mandate from Congress, the bureau has yet to produce statistics revealing the scale of white supremacist crimes. It said that organized groups were infiltrating law enforcement agencies, while individuals sympathetic to 'white supremacist causes' were also joining the ranks. The infection has grown to become a contagion, endemic to the whole of US law enforcement. Texas law enforcement literally aided and abetted 18 year-old Salvador Ramos’ hour-long massacre of schoolchildren and teachers.

We trained on it at the Orlando Police Department, and every sworn member, including the chief of police, went through the active shooter training,” Demings added. “So, obviously, that did not happen.”Demings also said more questions than answers remain about the police response to the shooting. “We have certainly more questions than answers, and I know that we’re gonna get to the bottom of it.”

*Memorial Day is a time for remembrance. Like, remember last Memorial Day? If you don't, we're about to remind you of it, by re-running last year's Memorial Day show, from May 31, 2021! While we are commemorating and solemnly observing, let’s not forget the 100th anniversary of the Black Wall Street race riot massacre, which is not the only Black Wall Street, nor deadly race riot of the period, by the way. People stream in over our southern borders to get their shots — if they come over in a plane, they’ll receive one.
Day Is Done ...
Today, Memorial Day, CBS marks the third year of inviting musicians of all ages, abilities and instruments to join in the playing of Taps at 3 PM local time wherever they feel most comfortable and meaningful. His tradition of playing Taps soon caught the attention of his neighbors who share that as soon as they heard the melody begin, they would stop what they were doing and stand at attention to pay their respects. In July of 1862, following the bloody Seven Days battles, Union Brigadier General Daniel Adams Butterfield wanted a more melodic tune than the traditional Lights Out – a rather harsh bugle call signaling the end of the day that was borrowed from the French. The next day, I was visited by several buglers from neighboring Brigades, asking for copies of the music, which I gladly furnished. https://clintonwhitehouse5.archives.gov/remembrance/taps.htmlThis more emotive Taps soon was adopted throughout the military.

Remembering the fallen.
Those 1.5 million Americans may not have been in the military, but they died because of the belief that Americans may need to violently overthrow the government, and so in my opinion the only difference between Americans who have died to guns and American service members who have fallen in battle is that the latter were afforded the opportunity to choose. Those who die to gun accidents or gun violence didn’t get to choose to face death, and that makes it important to remember that they died and why they died. Whatever a person believes regarding second amendment rights and guns, it’s just as important to remember those who did not choose to become sacrifices as those who did get to choose.
Freedom Clinics
So even if the evil governor allows choice to be outlawed, the police in Austin will take no action against the woman nor the provider. I also think we should name all of these clinics, Freedom Clinics. Or Freedom Place. Or just Freedom. Not just because of unsafe abortions; but because carrying to term is a much higher health risk than abortion.
Time for an 1873 Project for Guns
I know we are all sick and tired of the same NRA baloney and at the same time exhausted by Republicans and Social Critics trying to talk about the “good old days when men were men, etc...”. Let’s go back to the good old Western days they fetishize. In the for-seeable future there is no way we can ban guns, but we should argue to take the technology out. They love the Wild West so let them use the Wild West firearms. This meets all the gun needs except massive firepower that kills police and many, many people at a time.
"Good Germans"
Christopher Hitchens has some thoughts... This is a talk that made me understand why what we face in western democracy today has been litigated over and over since the Peloponnisan War, Inquisitions, Pogroms, death marches, chattle slavery and lynchings, genocide and such. I see more clearly what a personal, moral question this is and some societies rally, bring forth leaders, gird their loins with purpose, knowledge and organization. And some societies don't. Do your best).
They died. All We Have to do is Vote. Memorial Day Thoughts.
On Memorial Day 1997, my wife and I were in a town called Saint Avold on France’s Eastern Border with Germany. In Saint Avold there is an American military cemetery where 10,000 G.I.’s are buried, the largest number in any Second World War cemetery, many from the Battle of the Bulge. We happened to be in Saint Avold on American Memorial Day. Until a few years ago, there was just a small commemoration of American Memorial Day at the Saint Avold cemetery, attended mostly by the American staff. But through the efforts of Bertrand Cerf* and others, it has come to be a major Franco-American event, with equal participation by the French military, clergy and elected officials.
If only Republicans were as anti-abortion as they are anti-gun deaths.....
Thinking of having an abortion? Legal prohibitions are not a solution, since some women will have abortions no matter what laws are passed. Women thinking of having an abortion should seek mental health treatment. The solution for bad women having abortions is more good women having abortions. Law-abiding women should not be punished with abortions laws and restrictions just because other women have had abortions.
Can you look in the Mirror after these shootings with a clear conscience? I can!
I was recently asked to talk to a group of new donors to help Democrats get more help and was asked to help set up the function. As a political strategist, this is one of my functions of any group I am “hired to help”. Also why I always use NDA’s for all my work in case they do something stupid, I am covered. Then when Demi Lavato played the song “Confidence” (the theme song from Lucifer) I walked out on the mini stage and started talking. Their Bohemian Rhapsody became #1 4-5 times after they released it, even after Freddie died, who sang the lead.
Time for Action
Gun debate is another one of these situations . I know I'm on the right side of the D spectrum but the Gop is still miles to the right of me . Your kids will be just as dead if this gun debate drags on 40 years , and you do nothing to make your kids school a tough target . Our kids are just too valuable , to keep doing nothing , just because we can't get a national consensus on the gun debate . Anyway , I'll let everyone tear me apart and be told that we don't need any suburban women , or anyone , who ever voted for Trump or Bush we don't need , but we do .

From Glendale AZ to Uvalde TX, conservatism and the absence of empathy
In this case, Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) gave a speech to the seniors at Arizona Virtual Academy’s graduation ceremony in Glendale. I don’t know who OK'd that.”Butler also said Lesko failed to mention the graduates and their accomplishments. If there is one feature common to all conservatives, it is a complete lack of empathy. Or do they know how hateful they are, and say what they say, because they are sociopaths who revel in inflicting pain? To whip a slave or gas a Jew, had the same moral consequences to a conservative as stepping on a cockroach.

Are Virginia House Democrats about to select an unvetted convicted felon as their leader?
Virginia General Assembly -- Hosue of DelegatesA month ago, a trio of ambitous members of the Virginia Legislature, elected just two years ago, led an effort to oust House Democratic Leader Eileen Filler-Corn and House Democratic Caucus Chair Charnielle Herring. But beyond the inside-baseball politics of the Virginia House is a much more concerning impact for the Democratic Party nationally. This trio has positioned, as their candidate for House Democratic Leader, Delegate Don Scott, who served seven years in Federal prison on crack cocaine distribution charges. And Republicans will plaster these facts not only onto every Virginia Democratic legislator, but on the Democratic Party as a whole. But does this mean that the 48 members of the Virginia House Democratic Caucus should say that Don Scott is the best among them to be their leader?

Gun Violence Summit @ Camp David? I'm just asking. A Colorado State Open Thread, 5
The Colorado State Open Thread is for those who have an interest in all things Colorado, be they animal, vegetable, mineral or some combination of the three. The question is:Why doesn’t President Biden call a summit at Camp David to bring together the gun dealers / manufacturers / NRA / various parents and victims groups of gun violence / Congressional representatives and have them work out some sort of agreements that can bring about a decrease to gun violence? Any proposals could be hashed out at Camp David before becoming public, especially if all participants were to agree that “Anything that happens at Camp David stays at Camp David.” I realize that may be asking a lot from these professional poseurs, especially politicians and the NRA, but having Congress work within themselves isn’t getting it done. If there’s give and take, with a focus from the President, Congress and national media that are all now trying to come up with SOME sort of solution, maybe, just maybe, there might be some solutions. I look forward to reading your thoughts about why my proposal sucks, or perhaps you have ways to improve it.

Overnight News Digest: Uvalde, TX mourns this Memorial Day
Officials say he suffered a fatal wound to the neck after shrapnel pierced the armoured vehicle he was travelling in. A French journalist working in Ukraine has been killed near the battle-hit city of Severodonetsk in the east. The city - Ukraine's second-largest - faced intense bombardment in the war's first months, with images showing tower blocks flattened to rubble. Democrats in some blue states are making fresh efforts to reinvigorate proposals toward what gun control advocates call “evidence-based policy interventions”. "Shame!," gun control advocates chanted outside the venue, to which supporters of the powerful gun lobby organization responded: "Arm the teachers."
Top Comments: Memorial Day Weekend 2022 Edition
The juxtaposition of what Memorial Day commemorates with how the vast majority of Americans spend the day is always jarring to me. Memorial Day honors those who died while serving in our Armed Forces (Note it is NOT the same as Veterans Day, which honors those who served honorably in those same Armed Forces). Untold numbers of Ukrainian men, women and children have been deprived of life, liberty, and the very country they call home. Primarily white theocrats posing as elected officials and the ever-increasing title Justice work actively to take away MY rights to bodily autonomy, self-determination, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And yet, I took time to remember why we observe Memorial Day.
Hurricane season is on with a bang: Hurricane Agatha hits Mexico
That’s the header at The NY Times; hurricane season officially starts the first of June for the Atlantic/Gulf region, but May 15 to November 30 is Pacific season. Agatha was the first Category 2 to ever make landfall in the eastern Pacific basin, said Dan Pydynowski, a senior meteorologist at AccuWeather. This year is expected to be an above normal hurricane season in the Atlantic; President Biden had an interagency briefing earlier this month. Here is the NOAA Atlantic 2022 hurricane season forecast. Bigger and badder is the new normal — a more apt phrasing would be the season is expected to exceed historic norms.

Defense in Depth and Ukraine's East
During the conflict in Ukraine, I’ve come to the conclusion that mainstream news media shares a lot of similarities to Russian artillery. This can be most clearly seen when some analyst hyperventilates when the map of Ukraine incrementally changes color to red symbolizing the slow crawl of Russian advancement. Yet, by any military measure, Ukraine has exacted an enormous toll on the Russian army as they continue their advance. This is because Ukraine is successfully practicing a strategy of defense in depth. This is not a new strategy but has proven to be decisive when used in a larger military campaign.

Ukraine Invasion Day 97: ??#EU countries agree to ban export of Russian oil. Severodonetsk falling.
Ukrainian counterattacks occur even as Russian forces continued to incrementally capture areas of Severodonetsk but have not yet fully encircled the city. Zelenskiy added that Russian forces “have already stolen at least half a million tons of grain” and “are now looking for ways to illegally sell it somewhere”. It may make sense for Ukrainian forces to fall back to Lysychansk and defend the western bank of the Siverskyi Donets River. [16] Russian forces will likely continue to focus on pushing towards GLOCS northeast of Bakhmut and are unlikely to attempt to capture the city itself. The focus of Russian forces at the moment is the city of Severodonetsk.

Canada announces new ban on buying, sale, import, transfer of handguns & buyback of assault guns
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at May 30 announcementCanada’s Prime minister today announced sweeping new legislation designed to freeze the number of privately-owned handguns in Canada and reduce the number of assault weapons currently in circulation. The legislation makes high-capacity weapons illegal by requiring all long guns to be modified so they cannot carry more than five rounds and making the sale or transfer of high-capacity magazines illegal. Maximum jail terms for smuggling or illegally transferring firearms will increase by 40 per cent to fourteen years. Strict Canadian laws restrict open carry, which requires special permits that are very difficult to obtain. The new legislation was tabled in the federal House of Commons May 30, and is expected to pass without any complications.

Wayne LaPierre has also used funds generated from NRA fundraising for his own personal gain, including the financing of vacations for himself and for his family members.”EIN is 53-0116130.

After Roe is gone, even your prenatal care will depend on what state you live in
Being unable to find this structure could indicate a brain anomaly, or just that the scan was done too early. Doctors might also pick up evidence of a heart defect but not know how severe or fixable it is. Six states currently ban or restrict abortion on the basis of genetic anomalies, some, such as Tennessee’s statute, specifically reference Down syndrome. But others, such as North Dakota’s, extend broader prohibitions based on potentially even more severe conditions than Down syndrome. These tests are currently routine for pregnant women, but whether they stay that way in the future could depend on where you live and what you can afford.
Ukraine Update: Ukraine launches legit three-pronged Kherson counter-offensive
The middle arrow is the attack around Davydiv Brid, where Ukraine appears to have advanced around 9 kilometers south. This middle prong threatens supply lines for those Russian troops in north Kherson oblast, further pressuring them to fall back. After Voznesensk, Ukrainian forces pushed Russia back 120 kilometers (75 miles), the first time Ukraine proved it could retake lost territory. Ukrainian forces got as far as Posad-Pokrovsikote and Snihurivka, until overwhelming Russian artillery halted the advance. This video shows what a typical engagement looks like, with Ukrainian artillery destroying a Russian vehicle attempting to run the gauntlet.
Life and Death
We have become estranged from its expression in our environment, and in our connection with the reciprocity of Life and Death. The acknowledgement of one half of this dyad, which, characteristically is call the Life cycle, dwarfs the other and cancels their reciprocity. Life and death, Ken Wilbur suggests, can be seen as a vibration like an ocean wave - a sine wave representing a fluid movement from peak to trough in a singular, indivisible action. Any society alert to its local environment on which it is manifestly dependent for its sustenance, will have a fuller understanding of life and death than a society in which money mediates and obscures how its food is obtained - which in either case, is inevitably through the death of other living organisms or their domestication to human needs. Robert Graves shows how the rituals associated with a mythological rather than a scientific interpretation of existence balance life and death in ways that are mutually enriching.

Is alcohol a problem? A test for teens
The legal drinking age may be 21 in this country, but underage drinking is still defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as "a major public health problem." The government conducts regular surveys of teenagers to gauge alcohol use and other risky behavior. One example cited: "A 5 percent increase in binge drinking among adults in a community is associated with a 12 percent increase in the chance of underage drinking." Something for communities concerned about underage drinking to consider. In fact, it's not unthinkable that a teenager whose social life revolves around alcohol has asked himself or herself if, just maybe, drinking is becoming a problem.

Latest advancements in TB science in spotlight
Latest advancements in TB science in spotlightBOBBY RAMAKANT - CNSWe can prevent TB, diagnose TB, treat TB, then why did 1.5 million people die of TB last year? That is why listening to new TB science updates at CROI 2022 was in particular a ray of hope for me. Latest TB science updates included those regarding two most historically neglected areas: treatment for drug-susceptible TB (common TB when bacteria is not resistant to medicines) and latent TB (TB prevention). "Advancing TB science is vital because it is TB that is robbing us of gains made in advancing HIV treatment science and rollout. When TB is preventable, when TB is curable, then how can even one TB death occur in any sane and just society?
Secret Emergency Orders May Include Focus on Internet, New Files Show
internet kill switch(Image by Free Press Pics) Details DMCAPersonally, I thought it was a bad enough omen when President Trump was allowed to test the emergency broadcast system back in 2018 and sent a text message to -- supposedly -- every cellphone in America. You had no choice but to receive it. And there's been talk for years of an internet kill switch, which is not as difficult to do as you might imagine.
Polytheism vs Monotheism: Building Bridges Between Polytheism and Atheism
Perhaps the diversity of human sacred experience is an accurate response to the diversity of divine reality. What makes polytheism broader than either monotheism or atheismWhat makes polytheists different from both monotheists and atheists is that it applies the same critical tools it uses against atheism and monotheism to itself. Exoteric vs Esoteric theismThe more fundamentalist monotheists deny the reality of different sacred experiences and deny the existence that other gods exist but theirs. All esoteric perennialists say all sacred experience are the same, but they have different cultural meanings. There can be more than one Sacred experience.
Letters From Moscow Across the Class Divide: Impact of Sanctions, Homelessness, and Sports Fanaticism
How has each of the four classes (upper, upper-middle, middle, and working class) been affected by the departure of Yankee businesses (McDonalds, Pepsi, auto, and gas companies)? The loss of jobs in places like these would affect the working class. There would be serious implications in the closing of plants that are involved in big projects like the auto industry, which would lead to loss of jobs for the whole spectrum, from the working class till the upper-middle class. How have the sanctions from the US affected the everyday life of each class? The upper and upper-middle class may lose some of their luxuries, but I do not see them having any difficulties at all.
Letters from Moscow: Education, Health Care, Unions, and Political Parties Across the Class Divide
Parallel to state sponsored education, there is private education that is available from kindergarten until university. The Soviet Union had an immense health care system that included general hospitals, specialized hospitals, hospitals for children and babies, and clinics tied to factories and universities. According to the constitution, everyone has a right to health protection so medical care in state and municipal health care institutions is free of charge. The private health care system is much smaller and cannot be compared to the state system. The problems of the state health care system are more organizational than anything else (as mentioned at the beginning of my letter).

I led talks on Donbas and Crimea in the 90s. Here's how the war should end.
Professor John Quigley presents some options for ending the Ukraine/Russia war. These options do not seem very realistic in light of the events that are happening there. Moon of Alabama provides a summary of events for 9 May that seem to show Ukraine's resistance is collapsing. Still, it should be helpful to everyone to read about Quigley's efforts from decades ago when it was "obvious to everyone" that Ukraine was going to devolve into this crisis, because the USA wanted it to happen.
The Key Issues Within Ukraine - The Big Picture
Whilst Ukraine is not a formal member of NATO, for all practical purposes Ukraine has become a de-facto member of NATO. The US, Britain, and many other countries have supplied large numbers of weapons to Ukraine, including sophisticated ones, such as drones, and modern anti-tank missiles. The US has biological weapons labs in Ukraine, many close to the Russian border. Approximately 260,000 Ukrainian troops have been trained to NATO standards by the US military. The Russians have stated since 2008, that NATO expansion into Ukraine, is an existential threat, because the US could then put nuclear missiles in Ukraine, pointing at Russia..
Ukraine - Congress Passes The Bucks
After a lot of talk about defeating Russia in the Ukraine and an alleged lack of Russian fighting abilities Congress passed another $40 billion fund for weapons and economic support. That brings the total to some $53 billion for Ukraine. Most of the money will go to the U.S. weapon industry, the CIA and to various Ukrainian oligarchs. By expanding support to Ukraine across the board and shelving any diplomatic effort to stop the fighting, the United States and its allies have greatly increased the danger of an even larger conflict. They are taking a risk far out of step with any realistic strategic gain..
If Finland joins NATO it breaks its WWII treaty with Russia, and will no longer be neutral
Scott Ritter does an excellent video on what could possibly happen if Finland joins NATO. He discusses the "Winter War" of 1939 and Finland's subsequent entry into WWII on the side of Nazi Germany which Finland lost decisively losing 9% of its territory. The Finns entered into a treaty with the USSR where they would remain "neutral" in perpetuity. If Finland joins NATO it will violate this treaty and therefore no longer be neutral. Ritter goes on to analyze the military forces available to NATO and declares, NATO has no chance unless it uses Nukes.

World Drought Gets Worse - Cities Ration
On a worldwide basis, drought's impact on water reservoirs on every continent is chilling. A report from the Atlantic Council in 2021 "emphasized the impacts of drought on Ukraine's grain exports, noting that they had 'fallen sharply year-on-year during the current season due to smaller harvests caused by severe drought conditions.' 3According to the European Commission: "A severe drought has been affecting northern Italy and the Po River basin in particular." In the US, according to the Palmer Drought index, severe-to-extreme drought is affecting 38% of the contiguous US as of March 2022. But an historic drought of the Parana River dried much of it out; its waters are in the lowest level since 1944.
The Ukraine War's Collateral Damage
The world’s ruling elites have chosen to place their geopolitical rivalries above all other critical concerns, including planetary salvation. As a result, global warming is indeed likely to surpass 2 degrees Celsius sometime during this century.

Tomgram: William Hartung, Armed Hypocrisy
Raytheon is, of course, anything but the only major arms manufacturer reaping financial and reputational benefits from the war in Ukraine. Earlier this month, President Biden singled out Lockheed Martin for special praise when he toured the Alabama facility where it produces those Javelin missiles. On Mother's Day, for instance, Lockheed Martin CEO James Taiclet was featured on CBS's Face the Nation. More than half of that package will go for military purposes, which means the outlook for firms like Raytheon and Lockheed Martin couldn't be brighter. Putting that nightmarish possibility aside, there's another question that comes to mind (mine, anyway): Does arming Ukraine really make Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and their cohorts "defenders of democracy"?

Russian crude oil and South Asian politics
Russian oil is being supplied to Sri Lanka to produce fuel at its sole refinery as the bankrupt nation faces crippling shortages of everything from gasoline to diesel, Bloomberg reported Friday. Sri Lanka is the latest Asian nation to accept Russian crude after Moscow's invasion of Ukraine prompted widespread condemnation and sanctions. Not surprisingly, India's Minister of Commerce & Industry, Piyush Goyal defended India's purchase of Russian oil. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar remarked last month, in response to criticism of India's purchase of Russian oil, that India's entire purchases of Russian oil for a month were less than what Europe did in one afternoon. "Despite being part of the Quad, India sustained pressure from the US and bought discounted Russian oil to provide relief to the masses."

Scott Ritter & Ray on Ukraine, Russia, China
Recent developments, including talks with Chinese officials, have fortified Scott's view that China remains extremely reluctant to go to war over Taiwan. Scott reiterated his longstanding view that Russian forces will prevail on the ground in Ukraine, adding that recently they have been performing in a very impressive, professional way. UPDATEIn this context, the trial-balloon-type media reports yesterday afternoon, after our interview, that the U.S. is preparing to send long-range rocket systems to Ukraine, takes on added importance. This is much farther than the systems currently in Ukraine's inventory, and could put Russia itself within range. This system has been sitting atop the long list of requests from Ukrainian officials, who say it is needed to curb advancing Russian forces in the Donbas.

So Michael Moore is calling for. With his signature sense of angry humor, activist filmmaker Michael Moore sets out to explore the roots of this bloodshed.

Furthermore, he seeks to investigate and confront the powerful elite political and corporate interests fanning this culture for their own. We've had a kind of rein on the weapons in the past -- HR3355 -- which banned "assault weapons", but Congress let the legislation lapse and die under a sunshine clause.

The Age of Relativity
Richard FeynmanObviously the invention of the door knob has far greater social impact than any of Einstein's theories. The Special Theory of Relativity (1905) is all about the behavior of light and motion relative to it. All matter comes from a primary substance; the lumimiferous AetherNiko TeslaThe Aether explains physical reality in a different way. Its negation was essential to Einstein's theories that establish an absolute and immutable value for the speed of light. Even though the elimination of the Aether is necessary to Einstein's theories, science now implies it exists.
Russia-Ukraine war: George Bush's admission of his crimes in Iraq was no 'gaffe'
It was apparently a "gaffe" of the kind we had forgotten since George W Bush stepped down from the US presidency in early 2009. During a speech in Dallas last week, he momentarily confused Russian President Vladimir Putin's current war of aggression against Ukraine and his own war of aggression against Iraq in 2003. The western media, in so far as it has bothered to report Bush's speech, has laughed along nervously too. It is intended to deflect us, the audience, from thinking about the real significance of Bush's "gaffe". They are not calling for Blair and Bush to be tried for war crimes.

It will be a journey of hundreds of daily actions, by thousands of people, leading to the desired destination of sustainable sanity. That does not require that we clearly understand the ultimate end of the journey although the potential goal may look daunting. In this case, at this moment in time, the purpose of the journey is to recover our sanity. And every one of us has the necessary supplies to begin that journey, a step at a time and a day at a time.

Open Up the Port of Odessa
However, Russia has been blockading Ukraine's Black Sea ports including the port of Odessa. The navies of the leading NATO countries, the United States, France and the United Kingdom, should move their warships to the coast of Odessa to force Russia to lift the blockade. The Russian blockade constitutes a war crime. For nearly a year, the United Kingdom and the United States carried out a massive airlift operation that brought millions of tons of food and supplies into Berlin. Now we must use our powerful military resources to break the Russian blockade of the Ukraine's Black Sea ports.

I still have hope and faith that Creator will show us how to save ourselves and life on our planet.
Mass shootings are a symptom of the declining U.S. empire's fascist reaction
The mass shootings that this country has been reeling from are symptoms of the U.S. empire's decline. This is only natural, because the imperialist social order behind law enforcement is what's producing these shootings. At least one-third of mass shooters have been trained by the United States military. White supremacist mass shooters get radicalized by the propaganda channels that are made possible by the settler-colonial structure. Mass shootings in the U.S. far outpace those in other rich countries because the U.S. is not just an imperialist country, but the core imperialist country, the one with a military budget that dwarfs those of its allies.
The basic premise of the US today is the need for "enemies". Real or imagined. It doesn't matter.

US proxy wars in Ukraine, Syria, and China may be next
In the video, Black discusses the conflict in Ukraine, his views on NATO expansionism, and draws parallels with the conflict in Syria. He said the decision for war in Ukraine was made in Washington, DC. Black said that Ukraine is meaningless to Americans, and yet American lives are affected by paying billions of dollars for weapons for Ukraine. A similar case in Syria, where Radical Islamic terrorists were used for a proposed regime change, failed. "NATO's arrogance prevents a serious response to Russia's reasonable request that Ukraine never is accepted into the alliance," said Black.

Don't Trade Real Liberty for Phony Security
School corridor(Image by ignat.gorazd) Details DMCAAuthoritarian politicians wasted no time using the recent shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, to justify new infringements on liberty. This is a step toward achieving the longstanding goal of many progressives of focusing the national security state on "domestic terrorists" and "right-wing extremists." Supporters of these efforts have used the Buffalo shooter's mention of "replacement theory" in his "manifesto" to attack prominent conservative commentators, most notably Tucker Carlson. Both sides fail to realize that a violation of any individual's liberty is a threat to everyone's liberty. If Congress was serious about protecting liberty and security, they would pass Kentucky Representative Thomas Massie's legislation repealing the "Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990."
Turkey celebrates 569th anniversary of conquest of Istanbul
Turkey on Sunday commemorated the 569th anniversary of the conquest of Istanbul, hailing it as the momentous start of a new era, Anadolu News Agency reported. Istanbul, a cosmopolitan city, was besieged 28 times throughout history before its conquest in 1453 by Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II. Captain Giorcomo Coco, who was tasked with burning the Ottoman ships in the Golden Horn, failed and died inside his sinking vessel. The Ottoman Army started an offensive in the early hours of May 29. Finally, in the morning, the Ottoman soldiers managed to enter through the Kerkoporta door and erected the Ottoman flag on the bastion above the door.
Authoritarian Domination by 2030 in US!
Authoritarian SystemsA basic element behind any "evil" nation or national leader is authoritarianism. On the other is the authoritarian personality, that authoritarian systems tend to protect and empower. The dominate, monotheistic religious systems are authoritarian by nature with their imaginary social hierarchies for justifying superiority and inequality. As John Dean and Professor Robert Altemeyer have documented, leaders of authoritarian systems, like the GOP, tend, significantly, to have an authoritarian personality. The Russian nation consists of authoritarian politics (dictatorship), authoritarian economics (oligarchy) and religious fundamentalism.
A Diaspora of Black Resistance: Reading Caroline Elkin's Legacy of Violence
How was "legalized lawlessness," the term used by historian Caroline Elkins in The Legacy of Violence: A History of the British Empire, the rule rather than the exception, carried out by countless emissaries, merchants, officers and soldiers? As a tool of the British Empire, "legalized" violence becomes a weapon to engage "in a bloodless battle" with its subjects. " Legalized lawlessness," writes Elkins, empowers the little island nation to rule over older and larger nations with impunity. Violence is the "British Empire's midwife," as Elkins points out, "endemic to the structures and systems of British rule." "Legalized lawlessness" was a justification for the employment of white violence, systemic violence, endemic to a host of repressive policies and tactics.
Phase Three in Ukraine
Conflict in the Donbas Region(Image by manhhai) Details DMCARussia's "Special Military Operation", which began on Feb. 24, is entering its fourth month. The Russian victory in Donbass comes after weeks of intensive combat that saw the Russian military shift gears away from what has become known as Phase One. Ukraine has no organized reserves left." Russia has completed Phase One despite the efforts of the U.S., NATO, and the E.U. to supply Ukraine with a significant amount of lethal military assistance, primarily in the form of light anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons.
Save the Children Now
-Guns have become the leading cause of death among children in our country. (Auto accidents had been the leading cause of death among children for decades until overtaken by guns in 2020.) The Kids Have Had Enough(Image by Tim Anderson) Details DMCAWe adults have failed our children miserably, leaving them a world of horror ahead. Lately, article after article is suggesting that we are losing our children to depression and suicidal ideation. (See MIT Review's "A battle is raging over long covid in children") Another government report points to a rise in Covid-related depression.
What fascist Ukraine's imminent defeat means for the Zionist ideology it's tied into
When Ukraine's defeat becomes impossible for the imperialist media to deny, Zionism will be dealt a blow along with it. Kiev's officials have explicitly called for the ethnic Russians to be forcibly relocated should the Donbass separatists lose the war. When Kiev loses, Zionism will be repudiated by extension, as Zionism depends on the same ethnic-supremacist logic that Kiev uses. Such is the reasoning of the Ukrainian fascists, and those throughout the imperialist bloc who support Ukraine's war crimes out of supposed love for "human rights." The imperialists, in tandem with their Zionist running dogs, can call the liberation of the Donbass peoples a Russian "imperialist" project all they like.
We Need “Gun Control” at the Pentagon
New outcries for gun control have followed the horrible tragedies of mass shootings in Uvalde and Buffalo. As he has said, a badly needed step is gun control — which, it’s clear from evidence in many countries, would sharply reduce gun-related deaths. But what about “gun control” at the Pentagon? The civilians who have died — and are continuing to die — from use of U.S. military weapons don’t appear on American TV screens. Yes, gun control is a great idea.
Inquest into fatal shooting by Ontario police finds “totally deficient” arrest planning for suspects with mental health problems
Once inside, he was informed he was under arrest for threatening a salesperson on his property a few days earlier. Babak’s sister, Elly Saidi, told CBC News, “They waited for hours, and finally the police came. However, a coroner’s inquest into Saidi’s death concluded late last month that the OPP had “totally deficient arrest planning” for people with mental health problems. In the 461 cases involving a fatal police encounter between 2000 and 2017, CBC News identified 18 cases where criminal charges were laid. In February this year, Calgary Police Service officers shot and killed Latjor Tuel, a Sudanese man suffering from mental health problems linked to his experiences as a child soldier in the African country’s civil war.
Workers Struggles: The Americas
Latin AmericaTeachers, transit workers stage protest in Colon, PanamaThe Colon Unity Coalition, in Colon Province announced last Monday that protest strikes would continue. Transit workers have paralyzed public transportation along the Province’s nine transit routes. Police attack Cordoba, Argentina city workers protesting inflationProtesting public employees in the city of Cordoba were attacked by police on Sunday, May 29, as they approached a bicycle festival race. The city workers are demanding higher wages to make up for and keep up with Argentina’s accelerating inflation (currently 5 percent per month). The demonstration brought together workers, university employees, street cleaners, transit, supermarket and health workers.
UK: Rail strike at TransPennine Express continues over pay-parity and conditions
UK rail conductors working for TransPennine Express (TPE) are continuing their Sunday walkouts begun February 13 over pay. With the introduction of new technology to scan tickets, conductors (also known as guards) at Northern are paid 2 pence a scan—a payment denied to TPE conductors. At TPE, conductors want an enhanced flat payment of £250 and £275 for Rest Day Working and Sunday working restored. TPE is owned by multi-national FirstGroup, a British transport company headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland that includes rail and bus services across the UK and Ireland. They explained the reasons for their strike and discussed conditions at TPE and the cost-of-living crisis.
IG Metall union “social collective agreement” means closure of Vallourec steel tube plants in Germany
This was confirmed by Vallourec workers who spoke to the WSWS at the early shift change in Mülheim. But the works council did nothing until shortly before the end, he added, when the decision had already been made. Another worker reported that his criticism had been rejected out of hand by the works council. The works council and union supervisory board members and highly paid officials, who do not have to work on the production line, are profiting handsomely. But that requires a complete break with IG Metall and its works council representatives.
15,000 Minnesota nurses prepare for fight as contracts expire
Contracts for 15,000 Minnesota nurses at 15 hospitals are heading towards expiration with no settlement for a new agreement in sight. Allina Nurses on strike at Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Minneapolis-June 10, 2010 (WSWS)The Minnesota nurses’ contracts come amid a massive crisis in the health care system. This mighty strike wave makes clear that health care workers are determined to fight for themselves and their patients. Minnesota nurses, like health care workers everywhere, face understaffing problems, compounded by the pandemic, that lead to high levels of stress, burnout, depression and even suicide. These committees, democratically controlled by workers themselves, should unite nurses in the Twin Cities, Essentia nurses in Duluth, along with all other health care workers.
Trader Joe’s cut retirement benefits during pandemic
Workers at the major grocery chain Trader Joe’s saw their retirement benefits slashed during the pandemic. The exterior of a Trader Joe's store [Photo by Flickr/Mike Mozart / CC BY 4.0Typically, Trader Joe’s workers receive contributions to their 401(k) plan as a lump sum equal to 10 percent of their wage. For the average Trader Joe’s worker the cut to retirement benefits is equivalent to a pay cut of around $1,500-$2,000/year. In the letter, the organizing committee stated, “Trader Joe’s has continued to slash our benefits as our wages stagnate and our safety concerns go unaddressed. Trader Joe’s workers interested in learning more about rank-and-file committees, should contact us for more information.
New Zealand PM in the US promotes internet censorship, downplays pandemic
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern answers a question during a press conference at Parliament in Wellington, New Zealand. In her Harvard speech, Ardern said nothing about the role of far-right politicians, including Donald Trump, in fuelling Tarrant’s ideology. Instead, she blamed the attack on social media and promoted her government’s push for global internet censorship, dubbed the Christchurch Call to Action. According to Worldometers, New Zealand recorded 20 COVID deaths per million in the past seven days, the eighth-highest weekly death rate in the world. As the world hurtles towards war, Ardern told the media that she would encourage greater US “engagement” in the Pacific region.
Parents and teachers defend Seattle principal fired for exposing district’s abandonment of contact tracing
The specific allegation at issue is that I failed to follow a directive to withhold information about changes in COVID-19 contact tracing from the Cleveland community. But now, individual contact tracing is no longer offered, and the mask mandate has been abandoned since early March. Many teachers, parents and school staff are outraged by Brown’s firing. The lack of contact tracing is horrible. Contact tracing is an important part of that layered approach.
Sri Lanka faces worsening health crisis
Sri Lankan government medical officers protest outside the national hospital in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Thursday, April 7, 2022. Health workers, including doctors, nurses, paramedical staff and other medical workers have been in the forefront of these struggles. The budget allocation for defence in 2020 was 290 billion rupees, while health spending was just 254 billion rupees; in 2021 defence received 380 billion rupees with 286 billion rupees for health. This year, 373 billion rupees were allocated for defence and 225 billion rupees for health, the lowest amount for health sector in the past three years. The allies of the Sri Lankan workers in this struggle are their international class brothers and sisters who are facing the similar attacks around the world.
Sri Lankan doctor speaks out over catastrophic medical crisis
This week a Kandy Hospital surgical ward doctor contacted the WSWS to voice her concerns about the alarming scarcity of medicines and surgical equipment. It has to be executed by the medical staff and puts the lives of the patients in danger as it is a risky method of treatment. With the lack of proper medical equipment, the staff has been forced to watch patients die one by one helplessly. The threefold increase of the cost of petrol has been impossible to afford for many medical staff members here. Apart from these issues, more and more medical personnel have been forced to leave the country, further increasing the workload and need for medical staff, ultimately resulting in the downfall of medical practice in Sri Lanka.
Officials, media spread complacency as US enters third summer of COVID infections and death
And even with that much lower starting point, some 65,000 Americans died of COVID-19 during the summer of 2021. Tragically, the prediction that “Memorial Day gatherings” would generate another rise in infections is already about to be realized. This would mean that the actual number of new infections is above 700,000 a day, close to the all-time peak of 900,000 daily infections during the Omicron spike in January. On May 18, the county Public Health Department reported 4,384 new cases. Public health officials, however, have responded only by urging residents to wear masks in indoor public spaces, without suggesting a return to any form of mandate.
Central banks tighten interest rates amid warnings of social crisis
According to the analysis by the FT, there have been more than 60 interest rate increases by central banks in the past three months, the most since the start of 2000. The interest rate hikes are being led by the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of England. Money is flowing back to the major financial markets while emerging market bonds record their largest losses in more than three decades. That means more monetary policy tightening and central banks will continue until something breaks, either the economy or the market.”Some of the biggest rate rises have come in Latin America as central banks attempt to stop the outflow of capital. The interest rate in Brazil has been raised 10 times in the past year and now stands at 12.75 percent compared to just 2 percent in March 2021.
US gives Ukraine blank check for strikes inside Russia
In other words, the US is effectively providing Ukraine with a blank check on strikes inside Russian territory. The Ukrainian army has already carried out multiple strikes within Russia, killing at least one civilian and wounding dozens. The Russian Defense Ministry recently increased its troops and artillery deployments to the Kursk region neighboring Eastern Ukraine. In addition to advanced weapons systems, the US has plans to provide Ukraine with even longer-range weapons in the form of multiple rocket launchers potentially capable of striking deep inside Russia. On March 11, Biden still declared, “We will not fight a war against Russia in Ukraine.
New Australian Liberal leader doubles down on “prepare for war” call
Yesterday’s unopposed installation of former Defence Minister Peter Dutton as the new leader of the Liberal Party marks a further sharp shift to the right, and toward the agenda of war and austerity, by Australia’s entire political establishment. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)Dutton is the leader of the Liberals’ most right-wing conservative faction. The most significant feature of Dutton’s first media conference yesterday as the Liberal leader was his defiant defence of his incendiary anti-China agitation in the lead-up to the election, during which he said the country had to “prepare for war” against China. Notably, Albanese, who has unequivocally committed his government to the Biden administration’s escalating moves against China, sprang to Dutton’s defence last week as soon as it was clear that Dutton would be unopposed as the Liberal leader. “Anthony Albanese looked Australian workers in the eye and said that he would absolutely support the 5.1 per cent increase in wages,” Dutton said.
Australian Labor government grants Tamil refugee family only insecure bridging visas
As one of its first acts, the new Australian Labor government has refused the Murugappan Tamil refugee family permanent residency, instead granting insecure temporary bridging visas. Prime Minister Anthony Albanese on Saturday refused to answer questions about whether the government would grant the family permanent protection visas or residency. Labor criticised this action from the right, claiming it endangered the military operation and “politicised” the bipartisan policy of repelling refugee boats. While carried out by the Coalition, the attacks against the family were conducted under measures implemented by previous Labor governments. In 2012 the Gillard Labor government struck an agreement with Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse to return all Sri Lankan asylum seekers who reached Australia by boat.

Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Broker Enters the Gray World of the Black Market
Broker premiered on the second-to-last day of screenings here at the festival, and it proves well worth the wait. Gentle, sad, and funny in a just-shy-of-cutesy way, Broker continues Kore-eda’s tradition of handling tough subject matter with a light touch. The film’s title refers to an illegal profession: the black market selling of babies, done to circumvent the bureaucratic and financial headaches of legal adoption. Just as in Shoplifters, there is a bittersweet resolution in Broker, but not one that is in any way tidy. It’s in that messiness, in Kore-eda’s allowance for and understanding of it, that the film finds its true empathy.
Johnny Depp Makes Surprise Appearance During Jeff Beck Gig
With his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard over after six very public weeks, Johnny Depp is not hanging around Northern Virginia as the jury deliberates. He made an unexpected appearance in Sheffield, England, to rock out on stage with Jeff Beck on three cover tunes while wearing a beret. On Sunday in Sheffield, Depp joined Beck and his group on “Isolation,” as well as Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing” and Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Goin’ On.”The latter appears to have been an instrumental, with Depp grooving along on rhythm guitar.

Top Gun: Maverick Breaks Box Office Records
More conservative types may have worried that Tom Cruise suiting up as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell was a “ride into the danger zone” of obsolesce. But this weekend’s receipts for Top Gun: Maverick have proven them wrong. The movie’s success didn’t stop at our nation’s borders (proudly defended by our naval aviators with callsigns like Maverick, Rooster, Hangman, Phoenix, Fanboy, and, uh, Bob.) It earned a reported $124 million, which by my math makes $280 million. Twitter content This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from.
Mona Lisa Attacked at Louvre Museum by Vandal Posing As Elderly Woman
The Mona Lisa has had a busy life since its creation in the early 1500s. Leonardo took it with him when he left Italy for France in 1516, where he died three years later. The painting has hung at the Palace of Fontainebleau, then the Palace of Versailles, and, for a time, in Napoleon’s bedroom in the Tuileries Palace before settling at the Louvre. Prior to the theft the piece was mostly known by artists and historians who recognized its value as a Renaissance masterwork. In the 1950s the famous painting was put behind glass after someone attacked it with a razor.

Justice Department Investigates Police Response To School Mass Shooting in Texas
The Justice Department announced Sunday that it will review the law enforcement response to last week’s mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, a massacre that left 19 children and two teachers dead. “As with previous Justice Department after-action reviews of mass shootings and other critical incidents, this assessment will be fair, transparent, and independent,” said Coley. "The Justice Department will publish a report with its findings at the conclusion of its review.”It’s not the first time that the Justice Department has reviewed law enforcement responses to a mass shooting in the wake of such events, the New York Times notes, as was the case after the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida. “It was the wrong decision, period,” Steven McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, said of the police errors. According to the Times, the Texas Rangers are leading an investigation into the shooting and the police response.
Stolen Words: COVID, Ketamine, and Me
One day words are lost, and you search for them but there is a hole in your brain where the words used to be. I scribbled these words during 2020’s pandemic spring when I realized I had lost the ability to write. Then came COVID. I was hardly alone in feeling like the bottom was falling out as 2020 passed by grimly, day after day. In that dark space between furtive sleep and wakefulness you start falling, falling, falling, and there’s nothing there to stop you.
“They Were More Spontaneous And Free”: Ron Galella on the Golden Age of Celebrity
Ron Galella died last April 30, at the age of 91, leaving behind an unparalleled career and an archive that contains some of the most famous images in American costume history.

After that first picture she put on the sunglasses she was holding, but by then I had taken it. [In 1972, a judge ordered Galella to keep 25 feet away from Mrs. Kennedy and 30 feet from her children.

Female masturbation and women's pleasure is finally being viewed through a realistic lens by Indian cinema
I was very young, though this shouldn’t come as a surprise—research shows that children can discover self-pleasure as early as five years old. At the time when I was growing up, there was no talk of female masturbation; I only managed to broach the subject with my girlfriends when I was 17. Unfortunately, such misconceptions have long prevailed around the idea of female pleasure, especially in India, where women are labelled as “indecent” for even thinking about sex. “In a country where the female body is so heavily policed and they’re viewed as objects of desire as opposed to the ones having these desires, pleasure still remains taboo,” explains sexuality educator Apurupa Vatsalya. “We are taught very early on that any expression, be it sexual or otherwise, is somehow wrong and selfish.

Livia Firth and Tom Ford Discuss the Gigantic Issue of Thin-Film Plastic Polluting Our Oceans
Here enters the legendary Tom Ford and the CEO of the NGO Lonely Whale, Dune Ives, who, together, decided to put an end to the gigantic issue of thin-film plastic pollution. Thin-film plastic is made from low density polyethylene (LDPE), which is produced from ethylene, aka petroleum or natural gas. Today, thin-film plastic contributes 46% of the approximately 11 million metric tons of new plastic that enters the ocean every year. And yet again, the fashion industry has a huge responsibility in it – considering that almost 180 billion thin-film plastic polybags are used every year and very few are collected or recycled. “Several years ago, I was watching a talk show and Adrian Grenier, who co-founded Lonely Whale, was speaking on plastic waste in the ocean,” he shares.

Gen Z Has Finally Discovered Kate Bush, and I’m Thrilled
It might be a book you read at a formative time in your life, or a film you hold especially close to your heart. And even though you know it isn’t the nicest thing to feel, your first instinct is: Where have you all been? “How could you not know about the genius of Kate Bush already?” appeared to be the consensus from many on Twitter. A disclaimer: Anyone who knows me knows that I have a borderline pathological obsession with Bush and her music. Seeing Bush, who trained in contemporary dance, twirl and wave her arms through a spectral white mist in a floaty batwing dress, her eyes wide with urgency, I was mesmerized.

Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird (née Shannon), has given birth to twins with husband Joshua Efird. The daughter of “Mama June” Shannon, 22, and Josh, 25, welcomed a baby boy and a baby girl by C-section on Thursday, May 19, according to The Sun. When asked her thoughts on the matter, the Shannon matriarch said Pumpkin “doesn’t” need more kids. Back in April 2021, Pumpkin claimed her mother played a negative role in her marriage to Josh. “We’ve been together since we were kids and now, we’re adults,” Pumpkin shared.
7 Leadership lessons from Pop Culture’s Worst Bosses
The leadership lesson: People-pleasing clouds a manager’s ability to make the best decisions, especially when they may be unpopular. advertisementThe leadership lesson: Mixing family and business can be tricky and requires clearly defined roles. The leadership lesson: When you surround yourself with good people, recognize their ideas and achievements. The leadership lesson: Professional boundaries are important, even in seemingly friendly workplaces. advertisementPerhaps the reason that the “bad boss” trope is so common in media is that employees weather so much poor leadership behavior.
POV: Why we should retire traditional performance reviews
Despite our best efforts and intentions, the traditional approach to performance management has failed managers, employees and our organizations. Trying to accomplish two distinct outcomes with one not-so-great process: Performance management is intended to measure employee performance and provide a feedback mechanism to drive more performance. And the act of measuring employee performance does not increase performance. Simple: Even though employee performance is variable and dynamic, all performance has a few things in common that can capture a large majority of any employee’s performance. There has never been a more perfect time to reinvent how organizations measure employee performance.
Research: The Real-Time Impact of Microaggressions
In order to make more progress toward racial equity, leaders need to understand how these “harmless” comments affect Black employees’ workplace behavior and emotions in real time. There is ample research on Black employees’ experiences with racial microaggressions like these that show their harm, but these studies rely on accounts of past experiences. In my new research, I set out to discover the actual impact — in the moment — of competency microaggressions on Black workers. *The Real-Time Impact of MicroaggressionsThe results demonstrate that the ways Black workers respond to competency microaggressions are complex and not only hurt the recipient, but also how they interact in teams. The Cost to TeamsMy study also revealed that competency microaggressions can lead to less-effective team interactions.
8 tips for starting to build your first board of directors
When I was starting Farmer’s Fridge, building a board of directors was last on my list of things to do. Build a basket: Forming your board is an excellent opportunity to build out areas of expertise that your employees may not have. Set expectations early: Be as upfront as you can about what you expect from your board members. Be as upfront as you can about what you expect from your board members. Results matter: At one point early on, I was confiding in one of my board members about managing another member’s expectations.
Office Politics Don’t Have to Be Toxic
There’s no escaping office politics. Toxic cultures lead to disengagement from office politicsUnsurprisingly, many of the people we talked to shared extremely negative experiences with office politics. Our analysis also demonstrated that toxic office politics cultures can be created and perpetuated at any level of the organization. Inclusive cultures foster participation in healthy office politicsThe good news is, not everyone we interviewed experienced office politics negatively. Office politics has long served as a mechanism for exclusion — but it doesn’t have to.

Using Emojis to Connect with Your Team
Using Emojis to Connect with Your TeamBased on recent research on emoji use in the workplace, our interviews with leaders who self-identified as using emojis for team management, as well as our own research into effective leadership, we identified four ways using emoji can help you connect with employees and enhance your leadership in a hybrid or remote environment.

Stories are great – but investors should stick to reality
Look closely at the market, and you will see that whatever people say about stockmarket analysis being driven by models and maths isn’t quite true. The same is true of ESG investing (that which has an eye to environmental, social and governance issues). Stories tend to come before the models that back them up – I think market participants all know this to be true. And so it has been with the great growth boom over the past decade. Traps aren’t just for value investors A recent note out from Ben Inker at GMO looks at the traps you might find yourself in with both.
GameStop Stock Volatility Ramps Up Ahead of Q1 Earnings
GameStop (GME, $139.66) has been in focus recently as shares of video game retailer have been volatile. Specifically, shares are up almost 72% from their mid-May bottom near $81 (though they're still down 10.6% on a year-to-date basis). And GME will remain in the limelight thanks to its spot on this week's earnings calendar. The company reported a quarterly loss in its last report, and analysts don't seem too upbeat this time around. Consensus estimates are for GameStop to report a per-share loss of $1.45 – much wider than the 45 cents per-share loss it recorded in the year-ago period.

Isaac Mizrahi’s Companion Piece to “Peter and the Wolf”
The fashion designer and raconteur Isaac Mizrahi has narrated the Guggenheim’s “Works & Process” production of Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf” for many years. Now he has imagined a companion piece, “Third Bird.” To Prokofiev’s ornithological menagerie, which includes a little bird and a duck, Mizrahi has added an ostrich on the lam from the local zoo. For “Works & Process,” June 3-5, Mizrahi narrates his tale, set to music by Nico Muhly and illustrated with John Heginbotham’s quirky and amiable choreography.
Remembering Roger Angell, Hall of Famer
In recent years, as his odometer headed toward triple digits, Roger Angell became known around our office for the way his cheerful longevity complemented his talent. Like the rest of us, he suffered pain and loss and doubt, but he usually kept the blues at bay, always looking forward; he kept writing, reading, memorizing new poems, forming new relationships. He had no use for it: “Everyone in it is dead!” Roger kept replenishing his address book, and his life, with new and younger friends. His father, Ernest Angell, was a Harvard-trained lawyer who went on to lead the American Civil Liberties Union. It was about what was on the page or what could be on the page if something worked out.” Roger followed suit.
El Quijote Rides Again
El Quijote was popular for decades as a stalwart cool place for a decadent night out, where you could eat and drink lustily and no one would mind. In 2018, the restaurant closed for renovations, and now El Quijote has reopened, spiffed up and fancified, under new management. (The hotel, closed since 2011, is now partially open, with plans to open fully in the late summer.) The original bar remains, now with fancier cocktails, including a Quijote G+T, with pear, aloe, and celery. It would have cost closer to four back in Smith’s day, when she and Mapplethorpe would scavenge El Quijote’s discarded lobster claws to make necklaces.

Briefly Noted Book Reviews
This final collection by the great Australian poet, who died in 2019, encompasses archness, reserve, lament, and tenderness. Murray’s reflections on political and social subjects, including Brexit, bushfires, and his country’s neglect of literature, swing from the charmingly reserved to the jarringly detached. The earth’s physical landscape—especially that of rural Australia, one of Murray’s lifelong preoccupations—is rendered with extraordinary, often strange, beauty. The sisters from the author’s previous novel, “A Girl Returned”—a stoic narrator and her fiery younger sister, Adriana—reappear in this unsettling companion tale. For a while at least, one last thing generates and leads to another.”Life on the Rocks, by Juli Berwald (Riverhead).
Eric Drooker’s “Uvalde, May 24, 2022”
On May 24th, an eighteen-year-old gunman shot and killed nineteen children and two adults at Robb Elementary School, in Uvalde, Texas. In the past two months, Americans have also been confronted with mass shootings at a church, a flea market, and inside a subway car during the morning rush-hour. Every time a new bus of kids showed up, everyone held their breath until they saw who was on it. Read Jessica Winter on the hypocrisy of gun-rights advocates:If America were not afraid to know itself, we could more readily accept that gun-rights advocates are enthralled with violent sorrow. Read John Cassidy on how other countries have successfully enacted gun-control reforms, turning mass shootings into “rare, aberrational events rather than the everyday occurrences they are in this country.”See below for other covers addressing gun violence:
Malcolm X and Hamlet Seize the Opera Stage
In 1986, the novelist and critic Samuel R. Delany interviewed the composer Anthony Davis, whose opera “X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X” had just received a triumphant première at New York City Opera. The George Floyd protests of 2020 finally induced major American companies to pay more heed to Black composers. And “X” has come back to life: Detroit Opera staged it in mid-May, and Odyssey Opera and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project will give a semi-staged performance in June. In future seasons, the Detroit production will travel to the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Opera Omaha, Seattle Opera, and, in the fall of 2023, the Met. For a realization of that sonic crackup, one can turn to a “Hamlet” opera that has fallen into obscurity: a 1968 adaptation by the British twelve-tone composer Humphrey Searle, who studied with Anton Webern.

Welcome to “The Wine for Dummies Guide to Birding (for Dummies)”
Dear Reader,It is our pleasure to send you this free copy of the “Wine for Dummies Guide to Birding (for Dummies)” pamphlet. It has come to our attention that many readers of “Wine for Dummies,” the leading unpretentious guide to the world’s most beguiling beverage, have become really, really into drinking wine.

Experts listen for the yellow warbler’s “sweet sweet sweet, I’m so sweet” or the black-throated blue’s “I am lay-zeee.” But we here at “The Wine for Dummies Guide to Birding (for Dummies)” encourage a less technical approach. And, if you like “The Wine for Dummies Guide to Birding (for Dummies),” don’t miss out on our other supplemental pamphlets to help people with their lingering “Quarantine for Dummies” excesses, such as “The Online Pornography for Dummies Guide to Beekeeping (for Dummies)” and “The Tinder for Dummies Guide to Mushroom-Hunting (for Dummies).”

The Boy Upstairs
She taught two classes a semester, and in her spare time made sense of her thoughts in papers submitted to journals of philosophy. Life was made up of these little hassles—and of big tragedies, too, incalculable cruelties, things that no right-thinking person should abide. She was willful and morally pliable, her thoughts and actions half unknown to her even now, at forty. She loved two things more than anything else in the world: socks and milkshakes. Andy had written, from so alarmingly far away as Antarctica, to say: Somebody needs to tell you.
Angel Olsen Sees Your Pain
Olsen began recording it at Fivestar Studios, in Topanga, California, with the producer Jonathan Wilson, a few weeks after her mother’s funeral. On “This Is How It Works,” a new song, Olsen sounds worn out, deflated. Olsen considered offering “All the Good Times” to the country singer Sturgill Simpson, but her voice—gritty, sour, beautiful—carries the song. Olsen nodded emphatically: “That’s the kind of country that I like.”In 2021, Olsen and the singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten released “Like I Used To,” a sumptuous, aching duet. You almost had me.”That evening, Olsen was dressed in black trousers, a loose-fitting blazer, purple socks, and brown loafers.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputy-Gang Crisis
“Alex was livid,” the deputy told me. At some point, the East L.A. deputies figured out that Vivian was accessible. “She started building her network,” the mid-career deputy told me.

Daddy Issues in a Pair of Plays
Juicy is Black and Édouard is white; Édouard is French and Juicy is American. Juicy’s father, Pap (Billy Eugene Jones), was killed in prison, where he was doing a bid for an absurd crime: he killed somebody because the man’s breath smelled bad. Both men were expert barbecuers; now Pap wants Juicy to flay his uncle Rev like a hog. A prayer he issues at the postnuptial back-yard barbecue that serves as the play’s setting is one of many humorous bits engineered by Ijames and executed by Ali. Pap says that father and son should be “one beating heart,” but Juicy and Tedra are a more natural pair.
When Barbara Pym Couldn’t Get Published
Pym’s novels rarely identify an exact year; they are more heavily textured with place than with time. The arch titles of its short chapters (“In which Miss Pym is sent away to Boarding School”) make no tonal sense. The dust-jacket photograph of a young Barbara Pym sitting on a rock is even cropped in such a way that she appears to be taking a pratfall. Almost all these objects of unfortunate desire eventually found unappealing versions of themselves (though maybe better than what they deserved) in Pym’s novels. Pym also remains free to overrule dialogue: “ ‘I do not think it is really our business,’ said Miss Doggett.
When Shipping Containers Sink in the Drink
The largest of these can carry more than twenty thousand shipping containers per voyage; collectively, they transport a quarter of a billion containers around the globe every year. Others, preferring their shipping containers in the wild, have become passionate container spotters, deducing the provenance of each one based on its color, logo, decals, and other details, as delineated in resources like “The Container Guide,” by Craig Cannon and Tim Hwang, the John James Audubons of shipping containers. On April 26, 1956, one of the tankers, the SS Ideal-X, sailed from New Jersey to Texas carrying fifty-eight shipping containers. With the advent of the shipping container, that price dropped to an estimated sixteen cents—and cargo-related employment plummeted along with it. In the meantime, the only available data come from the World Shipping Council, a trade organization with twenty-two member companies that control some eighty per cent of global container-ship capacity.
The Revelations of Thom Gunn’s Letters
“Three or four times a week someone cooks for the whole house and guests,” Gunn wrote to a friend not long after moving in. Gunn’s letters are a primer not only on literature (he taught a rigorous class at U.C. “You always credit me with lack of feeling because I often don’t show feeling,” he wrote to Kitay in 1963. The morning after that, Gunn wrote this in his diary:She committed suicide by holding a gas-poker to her head, and covering it all with a tartan rug we had. His diary entry is not included in the “Letters”—it appears in the British edition of Gunn’s “Selected Poems”—but it should have been.
The Robber Baroness of Northern California
As he investigates her murder, White finds that Jane Stanford’s sanitized public persona masked a reality that was both more scandalous and more strange. But White’s characterization of the relationship between Jordan and Jane Stanford suggests that the statement might have had another meaning. The tensions between Stanford and Jordan came to a head over the fate of the economics professor Edward Ross. Only once in her biography, on the third-to-last page, does Bertha Berner come close to telling something like the truth about Jane Stanford. But, more than anything, it’s the constantly shifting stories that Berner and Jordan told about their employer that seem to expose their guilt.
How to Start Liking Running
“I let people lean on me as the coach,” said Becs Gentry, one of Peloton’s running instructors. Since she records classes while running herself, Ms. Gentry uses her own internal battles as motivators. Experts will advise sleeping in your running gear — compression tights and all — so there is nothing between you and starting your morning run. You may not think of yourself as speedy, but you are probably running faster than you need to. That ache in your shins is telling you something, but not necessarily that you need to stop running.
Canada’s Military, Where Sexual Misconduct Went to the Top, Looks for a New Path
Several other senior officers also face accusations or are under investigation, including Vice Adm. Haydn Edmundson, who, as the head of human resources, was among those responsible for eliminating sexual misconduct in the military. He was charged last December with sexual assault and committing indecent acts. In three separate criminal trials, the man was convicted on 12 charges of sexual assault and 25 charges of breach of trust. “What I want to know is what happened to the person who is in charge of him and who received the first or second complaint?” Mr. Millar said. “This crisis has truly moved the needle on how Canadians perceive the military,” Professor von Hlatky said.
You May See a New Meteor Shower in Night Skies, or Nothing at All
To catch the shower, get away from bright city lights and find the darkest and clearest location you can, one with few hills or other obstacles on the horizon. The moon will be new that night, so its light will not interfere with the display. The Tau Herculids, the meteor shower from SW3, was predicted to come from the constellation Hercules — hence the shower’s name — a forecast that has since turned out to be incorrect. The first bright star you see should be Arcturus. Unlike meteor showers that are visible for days before and after a peak night, this show will not last long, if it occurs at all.
Hurricane Agatha Makes Landfall in Southern Mexico
Hurricane Agatha, the year’s first named storm in the eastern Pacific, made landfall in southern Mexico late on Monday afternoon, unleashing life-threatening winds reaching nearly 105 miles per hour and heavy rains that could cause mudslides and floods. The storm’s winds made it a Category 2 storm, the kind of weather event that can rip roofs off well-built homes, uproot trees and cause major power losses. Agatha was the first Category 2 to ever make landfall in the eastern Pacific basin, said Dan Pydynowski, a senior meteorologist at AccuWeather. The storm made landfall just west of Puerto Angel, a small fishing town in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Nearby, the beach town Zipolite has become an increasingly popular tourism destination, particularly for the L.G.B.T.Q.
Man Throws Pastry at Mona Lisa, Smearing Cream on Glass Case
The protester, whom officials have not named, faked a disability to get close to the Mona Lisa, according to the Louvre. The painting was not damaged, museum officials said. Mr. Sundberg said he and his friends posed with the painting after the glass was cleaned and then they began to leave the museum. On their way out, he said, they saw the man, who looked straight at Mr. Sundberg as he recorded him with his phone. After the man smeared the glass, he was tackled by security guards, Mr. Sundberg said.
Opinion | Why the Producer of ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Is Betting Big on Theaters
But you know, the goal that we really had is we wanted to get the original group of filmmakers back together. One of my favorite scenes in the movie is when Ed Harris looks at Maverick and says, your kind is headed for extinction. And so really, a lot of my love of cinema and film really came from my childhood with my mom.

Omicron Reveals the Need for Better Sick Leave - The New York Times
Even if sick leave policies became more generous at the beginning of the pandemic, those days are over for most. The United States is the only wealthy country in the world that does not guarantee paid sick days or sick leave to workers. If people get Covid or another illness in Switzerland or Australia, then they are guaranteed to receive a full 10 days of paid sick leave. Of course, just because companies aren’t mandated to offer paid leave doesn’t mean that some don’t provide it. Many Americans work part time, or hourly, and have no paid sick leave at all.
China Is Not the Biggest Threat to the World Order. It’s Russia. - The New York Times
The Communist Party views the United States as an adversary. It’s rhetoric over Taiwan has been little more than saber-rattling and appears restrained compared to how the United States has historically treated Latin America. But it is logical for an emerging great power like China to make plans for its defense, including potential conflict with the United States. All of these realities shape its behavior just as much as the possibility of a future confrontation with the United States. Mr. Biden should find new ways to work with China, rather than trying to coerce it to be different.
Holiday weekend in the U.S. resembles prepandemic times, as experts and the White House remain wary of virus risk.
Indeed, scientists disagreed on the best course of action for people who test positive for more than 10 days. What we don’t knowImage Scientists are not sure why some people test positive longer than others and find that even some young, healthy and fully vaccinated people may test positive for an extended period. Dr. Barczak’s team found that some people tested antigen-positive slightly beyond the point of having positive viral cultures. Precisely why some people test positive longer than others is not entirely known. If they test positive, they should proceed as though they might be contagious, Dr. Gordon said.
Shakira's Appeal in Tax Fraud Case Reportedly Tossed Out by Spanish Court
Shakira is accused of owing $15 million in taxes for income she earned in 2012 to 2014A court in Spain reportedly dismissed Shakira's appeal in a tax fraud case, ruling Thursday that there was enough proof to move forward. However, those spending fewer than 183 days in Spain would only be accountable for income earned within the country. Shakira previously claimed that she had spent the majority of those years as a resident of the Bahamas, and filed her taxes accordingly. The Spanish court determined Thursday that it has been proven the star was "a habitual resident in Spain," and there was not enough evidence to show she lived elsewhere, per the AP. Shakira's representatives told the Associated Press that she paid the debt after the country's tax agency told her what she owed.

Canada Aims to Force Owners of ‘Military-Style Assault Weapons’ to Turn Them In
The Canadian legislation comes as another mass shooting in the United States has reignited an often searing debate on gun violence. Last week a gunman used a military-style rifle to kill 19 children and two teachers in the town of Uvalde, Tex. After 20 children and six adults were massacred in 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, there were widespread calls in the United States for stronger controls on powerful firearms. Mr. Trudeau’s program echoes a semiautomatic weapons ban and buyback program launched by New Zealand in 2019, after a lone gunman stormed two mosques, killing 51 people and injuring dozens of others in Christchurch. American lawmakers have failed to restore restrictions on military-style semiautomatic weapons that expired in 2004.
Rock Drummer Ralph Rolle's Baking Project Finally Hits Stores: 'Passion Has No Expiration Date'
Rolle, 62, has long embraced his nickname backstage, first baking cookies for his family, then friends and bandmates, and now, customers around the world. Inspired by his family's tradition of baking, he started the Soul Snacks Cookie Company in 1996, with flavors like Down Home Double Chocolate and Grampy's Chocolate Peanut Butter. But now, 26 years later, Rolle's cookies are available at hundreds of Walmart stores across the country for the first time. The drummer began baking so often that Rolle's bandmates began to expect him to bring cookies to practice as much as they expected him to bring his drums. By early summer, more than 700 Walmart stores nationwide will have Soul Snacks cookies on their shelves.

Latest Djokovic-Nadal meeting is essentially a pick ’em at French Open
PARIS—In 2006, Rafael Nadal entered his quarterfinal match as the defending French Open champion after celebrating his 20th birthday a few days prior. On Tuesday evening here, fans will get what they came for—a quarterfinal match discerning observers had predicted as soon as the draw came out. Djokovic and Nadal have faced off in three French Open finals over their careers, with Nadal winning all of them. Djokovic, though, was effectively deported, while Nadal won the title for the second time and surged ahead in the majors derby. Tuesday’s quarterfinal match will be the 59th career meeting between Djokovic and Nadal.
The Classified Case of the Pro Wrestler Who Helped Beat the Nazis
For a few days in 1943, the rumor rocketed around the Camp Ritchie military training center in the Maryland hinterlands. Camp Ritchie had been a vacation resort, framed by the Blue Ridge Mountains, just under the Pennsylvania state line. Among them: Man Mountain Dean claimed to be the first wrestler to lose a match without laying a hand on his opponent. In the late 1930s, in San Francisco, Man Mountain took on “Wild Bill” Longson, the wrestler credited with inventing the piledriver. He requested a match against Man Mountain Dean and—revenge!—broke choreography, contorting Man Mountain and snapping his left leg.
Jameis Winston is grateful for opportunity with Saints
What’s emerged is a more mature Winston, a smarter Winston, and a Winston with a very real appreciation for the opportunity that’s in front of him. His coach from 3DQB, ex-Dolphins quarterback John Beck, flew to Alabama every other weekend to get work in with Winston. The talent that made Winston the first pick in the first place flashed during the Saints’ 5–2 start last year. But fortunately I’ve surrounded myself with some good people and I think I’m giving us an opportunity to be successful. I think that’s the best way to honor them, with the way we live our lives as veterans.
Ranking the Best Players of the NBA Playoffs
The 2022 playoffs have been filled with its share of blowouts, but we’ve still seen a healthy dose of standout performances. Jayson Tatum, CelticsTatum has 68 playoff games under his belt entering the Finals just three months after his 24th birthday, and the reps are breeding impressive maturity. He’s scored 25-plus points in 12 of 18 playoff games thus far, and he’s been efficient in all three closeout contests. The three-time champion hasn’t tallied 35-plus points in a single postseason game, though his consistent excellence deserves recognition. Butler dropped 35-point performances six times, including his Game 1, Game 6 and Game 7 scoring outbursts against Boston.
Todd Boehly Officially Completes $3.2 Billion Purchase of Chelsea
The fast-tracked purchase of English soccer club Chelsea for 2.5 billion pounds ($3.2 billion)—the highest price ever paid for a sports team—was completed Monday by a consortium fronted by Los Angeles Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly. The government said the proceeds of the sale will be used for humanitarian purposes in Ukraine. “We are honored to become the new custodians of Chelsea Football Club,” said Boehly, who attended some of the team’s games in recent weeks. The consortium also features Dodgers principal owner Mark Walter, Swiss billionaire Hansjörg Wyss, and funding from private equity firm Clearlake. The club’s ability to sell match tickets and commit to new player spending had been curbed by the sanctions against Abramovich.
Maryland Wins National Lacrosse Championship, Completes Undefeated Season

The win solidified the second national title for Maryland under head coach John Tillman, who had previously lost in the championship game five different times.

Good Luck Not Accidentally Hiring a North Korean Scammer
For more than a decade, North Korean hackers and digital scammers have run wild, pilfering hundreds of millions of dollars to raise funds for the Hermit Kingdom and often leaving chaos in their wake. The alert notes that there are thousands of North Korean IT workers taking on such contracts. Some conduct their work from North Korea itself and others work overseas, mainly out of China and Russia, with small contingents in Southeast Asia and Africa. In some cases, the North Korean scammers themselves sub-contract with other more legitimate workers to enhance their credibility. “The reason this is important is a lot of people don’t consider this threat or write it off as, ‘Oh, North Korea, they’re crazy.
Proton Is Trying to Become Google—Without Your Data
Another EU proposal would require companies to implement methods of detecting child sex abuse material, or CSAM, on their platforms. The people making these proposals say, “We're not attacking encryption. It was really hard to argue that we have to accept that some terrorism is going to happen. If there was no privacy in the world, that world would be more “secure.” But that world does exist; it's called North Korea. But during the Bush years, with terrorism, I think they went to an extreme that really was a backsliding on democracy.
A Father-Son Team Solves a Geometry Problem With Infinite Folds
The computer scientist Erik Demaine and his artist and computer scientist father, Martin Demaine, have been pushing the limits of paper folding for years. Erik Demaine learned basic math and the visual arts from his father, but he eventually taught Martin advanced math and computer science. “Now we’re both artists and both mathematicians/computer scientists,” Erik Demaine said. “This is just a fancy way to say, ‘You’re not allowed to stretch [or shrink] the material,’” Erik Demaine said. It’s just two planes meeting perpendicularly,” Erik Demaine said.
Hades Nails Its Depictions of Polyamory and Kink
Besides tight and enjoyable gameplay and gorgeous art, what really makes Hades shine is its excellent and nuanced writing. This extends to the game’s romance options, which smartly and positively feature elements of relationships rarely touched on well in games, namely depicting polyamory and kink better than many of its peers. (It’s also important to note that while Zagreus, Megaera, and Thanatos all sleep together, this is not a requirement of being polyamorous, which is not inherently sexual in nature.) With the conversation they have together, this becomes the status of the Hades trio for the rest of the game. “It was really, really wonderful to be able to look at these two characters and be, like, I don't have to choose, because they're both beautiful,” she says.
Cuisinart 36-Inch Four-Burner Gas Griddle Review: Flattop Cooking Is Great
Once the giant propane-powered griddle was assembled on the porch of my parents’ house, friends and family members passed by in succession, many confused about what you would do with such a vast cooking surface. “I want to cover that thing with bacon.”The magic of the Cuisinart 36-inch Four-Burner Gas Griddle (CGG-0036) is the feeling that you can cover it with a metric ton of food. A giant griddle (sometimes called a flattop grill) is a great way to feed a bunch of people in a hurry. With all burners on at the same setting, the temperature would ideally be even everywhere on the cooking surface, so this is bad. I can’t be 100 percent certain the problem was with the griddle and not the tanks, but it sure seemed that way.

Wynonna Judd 'feels so helpless' one month after mom Naomi's death
It's been one month since country superstar Naomi Judd died by suicide at age 76 — and Wynonna Judd is opening up about how hard her grief is hitting her. Judd went on to detail her commitment to breaking "the cycle of addiction and dysfunction" that she believes contributed to her mother's death. I find myself humming the song that Mom wrote for the fans, to myself here on the farm at night. Last month, the Judds were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame only one day after Naomi's death. "Though my heart is broken, I will continue to sing," Wynonna added.
How to Fix the US Baby Formula Shortage
At Bobbie, an infant formula startup founded by two San Francisco moms, such a scenario meant its customer base doubled within a week. The ongoing shortage of powdered baby formula in US stores has been caused in part by pandemic-related snags in the global supply chain and high inflation. This has left supermarket shelves empty across the country—70 percent of infant formula was out of stock in the third week of May, up from 24 percent in January, according to retail data provider Datasembly. By the time they are 3 months old, more than half of infants are at least partially fed using formula. At 6 months old, three-quarters of babies consume formula.

Summer TV Used to Mean Something, Damn It
Summer was for Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy and Guinness World Records Primetime and that long-beloved programming tradition “On Sunday/Monday/Wednesday nights, we watch a movie.”We haven’t completely lost the “Summer TV is silly” impulse. But aside from emphasizing that network TV is drifting off into its own distinct ecosystem further and further from whatever “streaming” is becoming, summer TV is now just TV. We want more TV, so more TV gets made, so TV never stops, so we expect TV should never stop. It’d be a rare shared experience, like a Woody Guthrie verse about this temporary land of silly summer TV being for you and me. Summer TV used to mean something, damn it!
Drag Race All Stars’ Jinkx Monsoon Interview on Snatch Game
Photo: Richard Phibbs/Paramount+Jinkx Monsoon already perfected the Snatch Game once. The expectations couldn’t have been higher for Jinkx on the all-winners All Stars Snatch Game, yet somehow she delivered even more. Vulture caught up with Jinkx to talk looks, her blocking strategy, and all things Snatch Game. How did you land on the two that you did for Snatch Game out of so many possibilities? For Snatch Game, it’s really about finding the balance between comedy and someone iconic — someone who’s gonna resonate with a broad audience.
Rising Sign: What Is It, and What Does It Mean?
And that steady shape is dictated by none other than the Rising Sign. The Rising Sign refers to the zodiac sign that was rising (or ascending, hence why it’s also referred to as the “Ascendant”) in the eastern horizon when you were born. Likewise, the Rising Sign is an extremely sensitive placement: The Ascendant changes zodiac signs every two hours, so in order to calculate your Rising Sign, you need to know your exact (not approximate) time of birth. So what does the Rising Sign reveal? And what does each Rising Sign mean?

How Dr. Orna Guralnick of ‘Couples Therapy’ Gets It Done
Guralnik now stars in Showtime’s Couples Therapy, a documentary series following the real-life psychotherapy sessions she holds with her patients currently airing its third season. It’s an unscripted, intimate look at conversations between couples and how the therapy process unfolds. On juggling her practice and filming:I have long-term patients in psychoanalysis who I see twice or three times a week. So every time there’s something unexpected that surprises me or surprises my clients, I’m happy, because that means something is moving, something’s changing. So it’s kind of built into the work that there’s a certain kind of existential limit.

Stonehenge Is Now a Queen Elizabeth Billboard
Kicking off a week of celebrations for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, Stonehenge — the 5,000 year old man-or-alien-made rock formation that has puzzled historians and conspiracy theorists for centuries — transformed into a billboard for the monarchy. ?We’ve projected eight portraits of Queen Elizabeth II onto Stonehenge. “It’s Stonehenge, a place of ancient pagan celebrations, a place of tranquility to observe the solstice,” wrote @skypanda47, noting that the gesture upset them. “Something ancient and now pointless that we keep under the guise of tourism, projected onto stonehenge,” wrote comedian Alexandra Haddow. An ancient monument whose function is now completely unknown, projected onto Stonehenge https://t.co/CHmwznXMbI — Zoë Tomalin (@ZoeTomalin) May 30, 2022Its really interesting comparing the Queen to Stonehenge.

What We Know About Monkeypox So Far
A health official uses a thermal head to screen for monkeypox cases at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Indonesia, in 2019. And White House senior director for health security and biodefense recently warned, “We shouldn’t be surprised to see more cases reported in the US in the upcoming days.”Here is what we know about the monkeypox cases so far. How is monkeypox spread? But most people who become infected with monkeypox won’t get very sick and may not benefit from treatment as a result, says Ratner. “The general population should know about monkeypox but should remember that it’s really unlikely they’ll be exposed,” he says.
Arden Cho Knows the Power of Saying ‘No’
“We talked a lot about, ‘Should Ingrid be Chinese American or Asian American or Korean American?” Cho recalls. I’m Korean American, but in reality, I’m Asian American also.”Identifying as Asian American is key for Cho, though it took time. “I was like, ‘OK, if Americans think I’m an outsider and I’m Asian, but Koreans think I’m an American, who am I? Take a look at her Twitter page and you’ll find hundreds of tweets celebrating other Asian and Asian American artists in Hollywood. “I want to fight for a story that I think could make a difference for young Asian American girls, Asian American boys, teenagers,” she says.
This Year’s Eurovision Winners Raised $900,000 for the Ukrainian Military

Per Variety, Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra raised $900,000 for the Ukrainian military by auctioning off their first place microphone trophy. According to USA Today, the six members of Kalush Orchestra were on tour when the invasion began, and narrowly avoided bombings. On the same day as the Eurovision trophy auction, Kalush Orchestra also performed at a charity concert at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate to raise money for medicine and other supplies.
Nancy Pelosi’s Husband Arrested for DUI

Photo: Paul Morigi/Getty Images for The Recording AcademySpeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s 82-year-old husband, Paul Pelosi, was arrested late Saturday night in the Napa region of Northern California on suspicion of driving under the influence. According to TMZ, Mr. Pelosi was involved in a car crash in which his 2021 Porsche was struck by a Jeep. Speaker Pelosi was in Rhode Island over the weekend to give the commencement address at Brown University on Sunday. Her spokesperson told the Associated Press that she “will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.”
Jack Antonoff and Margaret Qualley Are Reportedly Engaged
Photo: Emma McIntyre/Getty Images for The Recording AcademyDid Margaret Qualley just subtly announce her engagement to Jack Antonoff on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet? A few days of rumors later, and People has now reportedly confirmed that the two are, in fact, engaged. Qualley appears to have debuted the ring on Wednesday, May 25, at the film festival. Neither Qualley nor Antonoff have commented on the engagement rumors, but they have both confirmed their relationship status. They have since walked red carpets together — appearing at the Critic’s Choice Awards (where Qualley’s show Maid was nominated) and the Grammy Awards (where Antonoff was also nominated) — and made it Instagram official with a few couple photos.

She is also the author of Lockdown Drills: Connecting Research and Best Practices for School Administrators, Teachers, and Parents, which will be published in September. Then we did lockdown drills to understand what it looked like or how they were responding if there had been a situation.

Now that everyone had been trained properly, we did a final survey to see effects of continued lockdown drills. ?We incorporate best practices and guidance from the National Association of School Psychologists on how to mitigate and minimize trauma during lockdown drills.
The Women of Jane Risked It All. Will You?
Pildes answered, and a woman on the other end asked for “Jane” — this was the code used by the Jane Collective, a clandestine network that helped around 11,000 women obtain illegal abortions in Chicago between 1969 and 1973. At the time the Jane Collective was operating, abortion was considered a felony homicide in Illinois; even sharing information about it was a crime. The women of Jane offered their homes as safe houses in nice neighborhoods where police wouldn’t interfere and chauffeured patients through neighborhoods where no one batted an eye at white women. The cost of the illegal procedure Jane offered started at $500, or between $3,200 and $3,900 in today’s dollars. These abortion seekers “were very, very, very different from the women who were in Jane,” Laura Kaplan, one of the volunteers and author of The Story of Jane, says in the documentary.
Prada Adds NFTs to Timecapsule Project
TIME FOR NFTs: After its first foray into NFTs with Adidas earlier this year, Prada is further expanding in Web3 with a solo NFT drop, linked to its Timecapsule project. Drawing a parallel between the limited-edition approach of the Timecapsule project and the intrinsic scarcity and desirability of NFTs, the company decided to combine the two in its offering to consumers. Starting June 2, the purchase of a Timecapsule item will be accompanied by a gifted NFT. Courtesy of PradaWhereas each Timecapsule drop is usually limited to 50 pieces, for this launch the supply will be extended to 100 items and likewise NFTs issued on the Ethereum blockchain. Prada Timecapsule NFTs leverage the technology of Aura Blockchain Consortium, the collaboration formed last year when LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Prada Group and Compagnie Financière Richemont joined forces to promote the use of a single blockchain solution open to all luxury brands worldwide.

Critic’s Notebook: Looking for Connections in a Less-Than-Dazzling Cannes Lineup
To my surprise, the film delivers much of the emotional punch found lacking in this year’s competition. Jet-lagged and sleep-deprived, we critics tend to sit fragile in front of the sacred Cannes screen. So many of the Cannes movies felt too long this year, but every minute of this tender two-and-a-half-hour portrait makes it that much easier to share the special connection between these two. Which brings me to the competition film that caught me most by surprise. For the Cannes programming team, selecting it was also a statement, defying those who have asked for an artistic ban on Russian films.
Terry Crews Buys Reginald Johnson-Designed Pasadena Estate
Terry Crews moved to Los Angeles when his short-lived NFL career ended in 1997, pursuing a lifelong dream of “making it” in the entertainment industry. Ever since, the Michigan native and his longtime wife Rebecca have frequently bunked up in L.A.’s leafy Pasadena suburb, and in the neighborhoods immediately surrounding the city. Records show Crews once owned a modest house near Pasadena’s historic Bungalow Heaven pocket, though that property was sold off in 2003. They’ve rented homes in other areas, too, including an estate in Santa Clarita — about 30 miles northwest of Pasadena — and a big mansion in affluent Greenwich, Connecticut. Now it appears the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star is finally ready to buy another home, nearly 20 years after he sold his first Pasadena property.
MLB Injuries Plague Payroll Stars While Freeman Shows Durability Endures
“I mean, 2020 and the 60-game season is a year everyone is still recovering from.”The stars are out of alignment. Their payroll is currently at $259.2 million, the highest in MLB this season, nearly $40 million over the $230 million first-tier luxury tax threshold. The Yankees, with a payroll of $247.7 million—third highest—have $74.8 million of that currently allocated to nine players on the IL. On the flip side of this injury issue, there’s Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman, who doesn’t miss many games. Freeman was signed as a free agent this spring after missing only seven games for the Atlanta Braves since the 2017 season.
The Greatest Singer on Earth Is a Double-Yellow Headed Amazon Parrot
Every once in a great while, there comes a talent so mind-blowing that it warps the fabric of human history, inspiring generations of enviers and imitators. Freddie Mercury was such a talent; so were the Beatles. And so is Tico, an 18-year-old double yellow-headed Amazon parrot who sings classic rock covers on TikTok. His inability to actually follow a melody is more than made up for by the sheer force and soul of his vocals, which sound a little bit like Nancy Wilson meets Axl Rose. They also discuss the unveiling of DeuxMoi, Halsey’s beef with her label, and how an OnlyFans creator got her Instagram account back by sleeping with Meta employees.

Trump’s Former Lawyer Is Recruiting Right-Wing Activists to ‘Monitor’ Elections
Through what is called the Election Integrity Network, Mitchell is working with groups like the Tea Party Patriots and the Republican National Committee, according to the report. Save America PAC, Trump’s political action committee, gave the institute $1 million in 2021. Her organizing efforts in Virginia, for instance, have supported a coalition that includes a group that favors the hand-counting of ballots. It was Mitchell who, having been selected by Trump in August 2020 to lead lawsuits after the election, brought onboard lawyer John Eastman. Like Thomas, Eastman contacted state GOP legislators — this time in Pennsylvania — claiming they could just toss out valid absentee ballots.
The NRA’s ‘Shadow Convention’ Reveals the Group’s True Purpose
The organization holds itself out as a stalwart defender of the everyman against “the world’s most powerful, deceitful and ruthless opponents,” as NRA honcho Wayne LaPierre put it in a Saturday address to NRA members. The mass of NRA members at the annual convention are motley crew. But if you look closely, you’ll also identify a rarefied group of NRA convention gowers who dress like they’re ready to take in the Kentucky Derby, decked out in tailored jackets and southern cocktail finery. The annual meeting in Houston featured a slate of private events for these grandees that was not publicized to rank-and-file NRA members. Friday morning in the George Bush Grand Ballroom of the convention center, the NRA hosted its Ring of Freedom Celebration Breakfast.
Johnny Depp Performs With Jeff Beck Ahead of Trial Verdict
Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance onstage during Jeff Beck’s show in Sheffield last night (May 29). Depp returned to the UK as he awaits the verdict in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard. According to Deadline, Depp could be due to appear at Beck’s next two concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Heard has also filed a counterclaim against her ex-husband, alleging that Depp has created a smear campaign against her. Should the jury conclude that Heard defamed Depp, she will be ordered to pay him compensation for loss of earnings.

Elvis Costello Reunites With Teenage Bandmate for Nostalgic LP ‘Rusty: The Resurrection of Rust’
Last year, Elvis Costello received a letter from former bandmate Allan Mayes. “He wanted to remind me that it would soon be 50 years since I joined his band, Rusty, just after our first meeting at a party on New Year’s Eve, 1971,” Costello said in a statement. “He asked me if I wanted to celebrate this anniversary by getting together to play a few songs that we used to know. The album was cut with Costello’s longtime backing band the Imposters and produced by Costello and Sebastian Krys. '”“Warm House” was written by Costello when he was 17, while “Maureen and Sam” was a collaborative effort.
Triangle First: Durham R&B Artist Elijah Rosario “Can’t Get Enough,” and It’s Mutual
× Expand Elijah Rosario | Photo by Taylor VongsavanhThere’s a kind of alchemy that happens in a terrific electronic pop song, where all the elements—the vocal, the beat, the music, the production—jell into something greater than any one person’s contribution. This can turn lead into gold, but when the elements are already good, it can also turn gold into gems. That’s what happens on “Can’t Get Enough," the glittering new single by the Durham R&B artist Elijah Rosario. ×As Rosario described it to the INDY, making “Can’t Get Enough” was a process of building up and then stripping down, and it shows in the sure placement of every detail and ad-lib.

Suffer the Little Children
The explicit goal was to dissuade further migration by forcing the separation of parents from children, who couldn’t join them in criminal custody. Yet the reprobates knew instantly who to blame: brown migrant babies, who were daring to drink their formula while in U.S. government custody. It’s about our children at risk, and their children as peril. No less than third-ranking GOP House member Elise Stefanik threw around the term “pedo grifters” in a tweet about formula going to migrant children. It’s about our children at risk, and their children as peril.
Turkey’s War Against the Kurds Exposes NATO’s Aggression
Elsewhere in Kurdistan, the war has been roiling for weeks — despite lack of public attention or outrage. On April 17, the Turkish army launched an invasion of the Zab region of southern Kurdistan. In Rojava, too, a low-intensity war against the civilian population and its administration has been in progress for months. Now he is also trying to use the Kurds to achieve his dreams of making Turkey a regional imperial superpower. A Turkish war of aggression with NATO’s blessing would make clear that the talk of shared values, freedom, and democracy only applies when it serves NATO’s own interests.
A Better Foreign Policy Abroad Requires a Strong Labor Movement at Home
Some foreign policy experts have questioned why “the Blob” has not pursued a corresponding strategic readjustment. The intransigence of the foreign policy elite is due to a general deficit of democratic control over American government. At least since the Cold War, foreign policy has indeed been run by an increasingly autonomous elite, deeply insulated within an executive branch that commands ever-expanding powers. While Lippmann believed that the failures of American foreign policy were caused by an excess of democracy, it seems self-evident today that the calamities of American foreign policy are due to a deficit of democracy. As Jake Rosenfeld demonstrates, labor unions are even more effective than churches in their ability to increase voter turnout among working-class people.
Joe Biden Is Ramping Up the US’s Forever War in Somalia
Soon after President Barack Obama assumed office in 2009, he authorized US drone strikes as well as the deployment of special operations forces inside the country. Southern Somalia was then subjected to an unprecedented escalation of US drone strikes, with between 900 and 1,000 people killed between 2016 and 2019. All of this occurred without the United States ever formally declaring war on Somalia. In the meantime, racialized depictions of Somalia as a war-torn country with the alleged potential to threaten US interests are instrumental in maintaining public support for renewed commitment to war. Ironically, the New York Times reports that the Biden administration’s deliberations about next steps in Somalia have been complicated by political chaos on the ground, implying that the United States somehow stands outside and above seemingly local factions and loyalties.
In Fiery NRA Speech, NC Lt. Gov. Rejects Gun Reform Measures in Aftermath of Texas Shooting
Governor Mark Robinson demonstrated Friday just how difficult it could be for lawmakers to advance comprehensive gun reform measures in the aftermath of Tuesday’s school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Because that’s is what we need right now. That’s what those families need right now.” Robinson said. Authorities also revealed Friday that 19 armed officers responded to the school when emergency calls flooded in, some from children inside the school.

The Art of Vivian Maier
In Vivian Maier Developed, Marks also takes up these questions. Who was Vivian Maier? Art is supposed to be its own reward, but Marks and Maloof and many of their art world interlocutors are baffled that Maier did not seek other rewards. And the art world generates a different problem from this question: If Maier did not develop and print her own work, are the prints from her negatives authentic Vivian Maiers? The real star of Vivian Maier Developed, of course, is Maier’s photography.
President Biden’s Trip to Asia
President Joe Biden’s recent trip to Asia and Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s May 26 speech on China were both meant to communicate the same message: Although determined to help the Ukrainians resist Russian aggression in Europe, the administration remains equally committed to curbing China’s rise in Asia. To counter those claims, and advance its program for isolating China, President Biden spent five days in Asia at the end of May, stopping in Seoul and Tokyo. It is largely in pursuit of this master plan that Biden spent those five days in Asia. It was here that Biden spelled out his long-term goal of a NATO-like alliance system for Asia, in opposition to China. This does not mean that the nations of Asia had to “choose” between China and the West, he went on to say—while clearly suggesting otherwise.
Little Steel Strike: Remembering the 1937 Memorial Day Massacre
Police using guns, clubs, and tear gas attack marching strikers outside Chicago's Republic Steel plant, May 30, 1937. South Chicago, Memorial Day 1937: Mollie West was there with a group of high school seniors. “There” was the field fronting the Republic Steel plant in South Chicago, site of the Memorial Day Massacre of May 30, 1937. The La Follette hearings, which began on July 2, did more than expose the Memorial Day events. Although the Little Steel Strike ended with only Inland signing an agreement, it has earned a place in the annals of the great battles of the American working class.
Taking Real Action for Veterans
On Memorial Day, we honor the sacrifices of military service members who gave their lives in defense of their country. I became one of those veterans after being exposed to Agent Orange during Vietnam — and I am not alone. Today, U.S. active-duty service members, veterans and their families are still being exposed to lethal toxins on a daily basis. What we need now is action from Congress to compel and fund Veterans Affairs to address this issue. This Memorial Day, let’s honor service members and our veterans not by words but by action.
SCOTT RITTER: Phase Three in Ukraine
By Scott RitterSpecial to Consortium NewsRussia’s “Special Military Operation”, which began on Feb. 24, is entering its fourth month. The Russian victory in Donbass comes after weeks of intensive combat that saw the Russian military shift gears away from what has become known as Phase One. Ukraine has no organized reserves left.”Russia has completed Phase One despite the efforts of the U.S., NATO, and the E.U. Putin was very careful in trying to link Russia’s military operation to the legal authorities that existed under Article 51 of the United Nations Charter governing self-defense. Indeed, both Phase One and Phase Two of Russia’s operation were specifically tailored to the military requirements necessary to eliminate the threat posed to Lugansk and Donetsk by the buildup of Ukrainian military power in eastern Ukraine.
May 30, 2022 – Consortium News
No amount of western military aid has been able to prevent Russia from achieving its military objective of liberating the entire territories of both Lugansk and Donetsk as Phase Three begins. Read more ?

Welcome to Morning Open Thread, a daily post with a MOTley crew of hosts who choose the topic for the day's posting. Because it’s Memorial Day, 2022, and “to die for one’s country” has taken on terrible new meanings. Should we consider that our million dead “died for their country”? 1893 – Elizabeth Coatsworth was born in Buffalo, New York; American poet, prolific children’s author, novelist, and short story writer. 1917 - Gwendolyn Brooks born in Topeka, Kansas, but grew up in Chicago; highly regarded American poet, author, and teacher.
The "Juvie Loophole" for Mass Murdering Children
Men under age 25 cannot rent a car, and not by law, but rather by the insurance industry's hard statistics about testosterone-fueled behavior for men under 25. Those young men also shouldn't be able to buy assault weapons, and for the same reason. I was an incel from age 12 to nearly 22, so I know how depressing that can be. Raising the age for men to buy an AR-15 clearly would save lives. Think of that as the juvie loophole to legally buy the weapons for mass murdering little children.
Major William W. Benson, USMC
“Major William W. Benson, USMC, of Springfield, Massachusetts, was the Commanding Officer on Eastern Island on whose shoulders fell the brunt of all this new work. But to me Midway will always stand out as the place I came to know and love 'Ben' Benson. There were high-ranking officers present in the Office of the Commandant, Marine Corps Headquarters, Washington, when the medal was presented to his widow, Mrs. Edna M. Benson, by Brigadier General Edward A. Ostermann. For every one of my many decades in Democratic politics I have really enjoyed the companionship and counsel of men who served in the Marine Corps. My sister, Bonnie, and me, and our Benson cousins remember him reverently again today.
Politico Article Lavishes Republican Kisses All Over Sinema and Manchin. I'm Going To Vomit.
According to Politico, Sinema and Manchin have — wait for it — “credibility” with Senate Republicans over their stance on the filibuster. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) have cut a huge infrastructure deal with Republicans and helped preserve the filibuster. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema quickly ruled out weakening the filibuster to pass gun safety legislation. If Republicans win the Senate in the fall, they will not need Sinema and Manchin. And as for the Senate Republicans...Well, here is when they slather the kisses on Sinema and Manchin.

365 Days of Climate Awareness 290 – The Himalaya
It has continued moving north, raising the Tibetan plateau and several mountain ranges. The Indian continental plate is still moving north at 67 mm/2.6 in per yr, so the Himalaya are still growing, at an average of 55 mm/2.1 in per year. Three major river basins emerge from this giant mountain range: the Indus, Ganges and Brahmaputra. The Himalaya are sometimes called the earth’s “third pole”, because behind Antarctica and the Arctic, the Himalaya are the world’s third-largest reservoir of ice and snow. For this reason they form a vital source of water for the surrounding regions—not just the three river basins named before—which is now at risk due to global warming.

American made bullets killed American kids.
19 Texan children died of bullet wounds. An18 year old loaded his legally purchased weapons with the fangs of death designed for a military grade weapon for just one purpose; to eliminate life. I have loudly demanded that every military grade weapon be removed from the citizens of America. Make ammunition for all military weapons available to military and police only and illegal for civilians to possess. This will allow all the “collectors of fine machines” to keep their precious toys, collectables and objects of compensation.

A Modest Proposal: Regulate bullet sales in the same way we regulate Pseudoephedrine sales
Back in the 1980s, Pseudoephedrine was as easy to buy as aspirin. Heck, my college’s school nurse would give me some for my allergies, or when I was caught by a cold. Limited amounts, limited access, limits on frequency. Sure, it won’t stop illegal sales, or people casting bullets at home with melted lead, but it will stop sales to 18 yr old shooters with extra birthday money. Limited amounts, limited access, limits on frequency.

Don’t ban “assault rifles”
We always seem to be in a position of needing to reframe issues. We’re much worse than the other side at framing. We need to call for a ban on “weapons of war” because that is what they are. Force Cruz and Abbott to explain why weapons of war are a good thing. “Assault Rifle” is simply too wimpy of a term.
America the Beautiful is ailing-- can we save her in time?
Scene: The patient arrives in the ER and her name is America. When questioned about precedence and their positions on Roe v. Wade during their Senate hearings, Barrett, Kavanaugh, and Gorsuch demurred. What has happened to our treasured Supreme Court that was once emblematic of the loftiest moral models our democracy had to offer? Well, the idea that we have more in common with each other than separates us is a beautiful sentiment, but does it hold? Republicans these days, street fighters by nature—they’ll bring a gun to a knife fight-- pursue power, take power, and employ power to meet their own ends.
Willamette Heritage Center: Jason Lee House (photo diary)
Jason Lee (1803-1845) was select in 1833 by the Methodist Episcopal Church to convert the Flathead Indians to Protestant Christianity. Lee arrived in Wyoming in 1834 and met with the Flatheads and the Nez Perce at the Green River Rendezvous. From here he went to the Willamette Valley to work among the Kalapuyas and establish a non-Indian colony. From the viewpoint of the missionaries, it was felt that the American settlers needed the gospel more than the Indians.

121 Americans dead from gun violence...
121As noted in the diary yesterday that is more than the typical number of gun violence deaths in an entire year in the UK. That included two mass shootings in Chicago, and mass shootings in Taft Oklahoma, Phoenix, Merced California, and the Las Vegas area (Henderson). In the US is takes a little over three weeks for gun violence to kill as many Americans as the attacks on 9/11. Until then, remember that 121 Americans died from gun violence in the 21 hours since my last diary. In the time it has taken me to write this another 4 Americans have died from gun violence, bringing the total to 125.
In My Very Humble Opinion
There are decent people who own firearms and I am not talking about them. Let’s take a look at those “good guys with guns”. Primarily I think it is because it makes them feel “big” and mollifies their feelings of inadequacy. They must be true “God-fearing” Christians because they are so afraid of God they want to be packing heat when they visit His house. It seems those “good guys with guns” are afraid of a lot of things… like those who waited outside a classroom while children were being slaughtered by another “good guy with a gun”.
Story Time Ducks and Other Amusing Things
That’s not a real duck.”“I mean, have you ever met a real duck?”“Well, no, but I heard one once. “A long time ago, before you came to live with us, when the Goat Lady’s duck got out and came into our back yard. The Goat Lady came and took her duck home.”Kiki again,“No, she’s not a goat. Ducks are pretty big, too.”“Were there any other animals there? It would be cool to hide out and see all those other animals.”“I think you are safer staying here in the house.
A Nation Cowering in Fear of Mass Shootings Is Not Free
These people volunteered or were conscripted to fight and die for their nation and deserve our respect and memorialization. Prior to the late 1970s, the NRA was a “sportsman’s organization” that supported rational gun control and mostly taught gun safety classes. Everything else flows from that corrupt cancer of legalized bribery that five Republicans on the Supreme Court embedded in the heart of American democracy. A nation cowering in fear of mass shootings is not free. Or a nation where a raped woman is forced to carry a pregnancy to term at the point of a gun.
A Not Quite Final Report on Uvalde, Texas
They all thought real, real hard. We did not think real, real hard or for a long, long time when we did this report because it was hard and there was a gun convention to go to. Many, who were not big, brave police officers, but who were outside the school, tried to tell the big, brave police officers what to do. Some wanted to call the bad guy’s guns bad guns, but no guns are bad, all guns are good. It was not that thinking kind of hard, but that other kind of hard, where your jaw gets real hard and your face gets real hard and your eyes get real hard, because you might be mad.
The Memorial Day history forgot: The Martyrs of the Race Course
During the final year of the war, the Confederates had converted the planters' horse track, the Washington Race Course and Jockey Club, into an outdoor prison. They whitewashed the fence and built an archway over an entrance on which they inscribed the words, "Martyrs of the Race Course." A New York Tribune correspondent witnessed the event, describing "a procession of friends and mourners as South Carolina and the United States never saw before." The “Martyrs of the Race Course” cemetery is no longer there. The site is now a park honoring Confederate General and the White Supremacist “Redeemer Governor” of South Carolina Wade Hampton.
How "thoughts and prayers" works
When mass shootings occur, it has become expected—more than expected, a cliché—for those gun worshippers to console themselves, saying that nothing could have kept the latest tragedy from happening; it’s all terrible; but our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims. Robert Jay Lifton, in Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism, goes into detail about the thought-terminating cliché, which precisely describes “thoughts and prayers.” His explanation sheds light on how the implementation of the phrase among the NRA crowd works. “Prayers” directly invoke God, making it feel to the person uttering the cliché that they are in the right; God is on their side. “Thoughts and prayers” defines the lane in which adherents to the gun cult can travel and beyond which they cannot deviate. 1 Robert Jay Lifton, Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism, p. 429.

Watch: A view of J Pod orcas passing Lime Kiln Lighthouse from the balcony
The J Pod passes below the Lime Kiln Lighthouse on San Juan Island, Washington, on Tuesday. The resident killer whale aficionados (aka orca dorks) who live in the San Juan Islands in Washington state are always excited when the best-known of the endangered Southern Resident families, J Pod, makes at least a salutary springtime visit to the Salish Sea, its traditional summertime hunting grounds. But ever since the large population losses of 2016 onward—immortalized by the globally infamous story of the orca mother who mourned her lost calf for 17 days in 2018—both their arrival, as well as the lingering absences that underscore what a loss their absence has become, have been shadowed by ongoing concerns for their survival. Nonetheless, when J Pod made its first “official” visit to San Juan Island on Tuesday evening, the excitement and joy was so palpable that those concerns, at least for the time being, evaporated. My friend Erin Corra, who runs the Friends of Lime Kiln Society that helps run the famous lighthouse on the island’s west side, ran up the lighthouse stairs to snag video footage of the orcas cruising past from the balcony.
From the GNR News room: Have a reverent and respectful Memorial Day, and a Happy beginning of Summer
Its a time of barbecues, of putting fans in windows and switching on the AC, it is, for many people, the official beginning of summer. In the past, I have been criticized for wishing people a Happy Memorial Day, and I can see where they come from. So this year I decided I would split the difference, by wishing everyone a respectful Memorial Day, and also a happy beginning of Summer. The court let stand part of the law that requires social media companies to disclose their content moderation criteria. I can’t think of a better story to end on, because we need some good news looking forward to the midterms.

So, how many COVID deaths really?
Taking an average of the number of deaths listed above (1,010,122), we can calculate that the true number of COVID deaths is somewhere between 1,262,653 and 1,578,316 Americans. We just download and use the data on weekly reported deaths per year. Don’t forget that the number of deaths for the years from 2020 — 2022 includes deaths from other causes—the background death number if you will. Again, the numbers for the deaths from 2020 — 2022 INCLUDE the background death numbers (deaths from other causes). If I added up all the net deaths per week for the entire 2½ years illustrated in the above graph, how many COVID deaths are there?

Memorial Day in America
There’s a soundtrack in my head when I get too cynical, too hurt, too tired about life in this country. It always features Texas singer/songwriter James McMurtry, whose songs about growing up in the wide open spaces of red America track pretty darned near to my own Idaho history. Here’s his take on this day, for those who might be feeling a little nostalgia for a childhood that didn’t include this enormous weight.

How to turn 'I did my own research' from a red flag to a weapon against misinformation
Over the past few years, we’ve seen social media swamped with misinformation, disinformation, and conspiracies about subjects from pedophilic pizza parlors to election fraud to Ukrainian biolabs. We’ve all seen the “I did my own research” claims coming from some of the people working with the worst information out there—fatally, in many cases, during the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s so much bad information out there ranging from misinformation to Nazis pretending to be something else. And a lot of it is very sophisticated, hiding its true nature until many readers have been sucked in. Here are two simple ways to tell good information from bad.
CPAC is boosting the antisemitic Hungarian right. Who's paying them to do it?
It looks like CPAC head Matt Schlapp and Carlson feel that the time is right to drop the charade, though. Recent CPAC events in Budapest, Hungary, boasted a notorious Hungarian antisemite, one who has publicly declared Jews to be "stinking excrement," among their featured speakers. "Stinking excrement" is just one of the xenophobic and genocide-supporting rants that Hungarian television screamer Zsolt Bayer is known for. Even before the Trump era, CPAC conferences were a dodgy blend between ultra-powerful Republican elected leaders and absolute conspiracy cranks. Just as far-right militant groups sought to internationalize their movements during those days, CPAC conservatives found new appreciation for international autocrats like Vladimir Putin.
What we've lost through the digitization of music
The mix of songs actually purchased by consumers is even more tilted toward older music. As record labels lose interest in new music, emerging performers desperately search for other ways to get exposure. The kids are finding the music they like, and they’re sharing it on YouTube and other forums. Music has always been about how we relate to each other, or whether we decide to relate to each other at all. Popular music — and the shared experience of that music — helped all of us to think about things in a collective way that nothing else could.
Latvia Wisely Chose to Adopt BAV
In essence, the Vote column shows the net vote, but biased by the number of ballots submitted. This election seems to be for thirteen positions, perhaps in a legislature, and interestingly the winners turned out all to have positive net support; in fact only a single candidate with positive net support failed to win. This data allows us to easily compare, for this election, AV with Balanced Approval Voting (BAV). And the most notable advantage of BAV is when there a two-party polarized electorate is either existing or developing. In that case there would be a much more obvious difference in outcomes between AV and BAV elections.

To Stop Gun Violence, Form a Well-Regulated Militia
Another mass shooting, coming just a week after yet another mass shooting in Buffalo, New York targeting black people. The former New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof had an excellent editorial on gun violence published today. It was first published in 2017 and has been regularly repeated with minor updates every time there is a mass shooting, which is too often for me to remember now. You can read it here and maybe refer back to this as you read the rest of this article. the 60-vote requirement to pass gun control laws cannot be overcome with any realistic electoral outcome of the Constitutionally rural and red-state-favoring electoral college.

New Book Explores Why “Inclusion” Can’t Bring an End to Anti-Trans Violence
By its end, the book provides a figurative version of the mace “bomb” that the Black trans revolutionary Marsha P. Johnson described carrying before her still-unsolved death in 1992. It’s one of the book’s inscriptions: “If they attack me, I’m going to attack them, with my bomb.”Johnson was prepared for the everyday war that continues against Black trans people. Through this, and other examples, the book demonstrates how racialized anti-trans/queer violence is foundational to the United States. I think writing produces audiences as much as it finds them. Even after much community organizing by groups like FIERCE and others, the piers have mostly been destroyed by the relentless gentrification of Manhattan, and yet, trans/queer life continues.
Molar of ancient human Denisovan species discovered in northern Laos
The recent discovery of a Denisovan tooth in Laos represents the first fossil discovery of the enigmatic hominid species outside of Russia and Tibet. The discovery was reported in a paper titled “A Middle Pleistocene Denisovan molar from the Annamite Chain of northern Laos,” published in Nature Communications on May 17. The discovery was made in the Ngu Hao 2 cave in Huà Pan Province in the Annamese Mountains in northern Laos. Homo luzonensis fossils discovered on the island of Luzon in the Philippines have been established to have been extant 50,000 years ago. Scientists have discovered evidence of Denisovan DNA in Australian Aboriginals, Papua New Guineans and Pacific Islanders, indicating that the species was widespread throughout the region.
Crowd Booed Gov. Greg Abbott When He Arrived at Uvalde Memorial Site
Greg Abbott was met with boos Sunday as he arrived at a memorial site for victims of the elementary school massacre in Uvalde, which sparked a nationwide wave of grief and anger over lawmakers’ persistent — and industry-funded — inaction on gun violence. “We need change, governor!” yelled one member of a crowd gathered at Robb Elementary School as Abbott, a Republican who just two days earlier delivered video remarks at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention, arrived at the site. Now Texas Governor Greg Abbott has arrived. “After the slaughter of 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde, those broken promises have never rung more hollow. The time to take real action is now.”The parents of children killed in Uvalde have echoed that message.

Starbucks Workers Have Now Unionized 100 Stores
The coffee giant’s CEO “Howard Schultz and Starbucks are getting creamed in union vote after union vote,” labor journalist Steven Greenhouse tweeted Saturday. By the union’s count, there are now 100 stores across the nation that have unionized. BREAKING: 100 Starbucks stores have voted to unionize across 25 states. Workers at hundreds of Starbucks stores have filed to unionize since the first successful union drive in Buffalo, New York late last year. “Congratulations to Starbucks Workers United for winning the 100th union election at Starbucks coffee shops all over America,” he wrote.
Violence of Settler Colonialism Stretches Across Generations of Native Families
The Navajo Inn was miles north of Gallup but just south of the Navajo reservation, perched along a lonely and deadly highway. “You didn’t talk about the Gallup that everyone saw, the Gallup of the drinking and the violence and the poverty. The violence was an Indian problem, not a problem that had something to do with poverty or with misery. To follow the generations of Casuses introduced in this book is to enter their world, a world made and remade by war and occupation. The arc of the Casuse family follows the arc of US colonial war and occupation.

US actor Ray Liotta dead at 67: Known for Something Wild, Field of Dreams, Goodfellas
The talented American actor Ray Liotta died in his sleep May 26 at 67. Liotta is perhaps best known for Something Wild (Jonathan Demme, 1986), Field of Dreams (Phil Alden Robinson, 1989) and Goodfellas (Martin Scorsese, 1990). Ray Liotta and Jeff Daniels in Something Wild (1986)After featuring on a television soap opera for several years, Liotta moved to Los Angeles in the early 1980s. In Field of Dreams, a sentimental-fantasy film about baseball, Liotta played Shoeless Joe Jackson. Ray Liotta and Lorraine Bracco in Goodfellas (1990)As narrator of the film, Liotta as Hill provides the opening commentary that reveals so much about Scorsese and American filmmaking of the past several decades.
Dallas school district’s proposed budget cuts teacher pay while union declares “victory”
When factoring in inflation, which stands at 8.5 percent, these are in fact 3.5 to 5.5 percent wage cuts. Also part of the pay rubric involves slight increases in pay as part of the district’s “Teacher Excellence Initiative” (TEI), providing bonuses corresponding to teacher evaluations by school administrators. According to this formula, Dallas ISD teachers are evaluated in eight graduated categories which determine their supplemental pay. So those who bear much of the responsibility for the implementation of the reactionary TEI pay scheme and the attack on wages are the trade union bureaucrats and the Democratic Party. Teachers in school districts around Texas and around the US are going through similar experiences: coronavirus infections, pay cuts, austerity, the destruction of public education, and the threat of world war.
Sozialistische Gleichheitspartei holds powerful online rally against war
Under the title “No third world war! Billions for health and work instead of armaments and war!” they discussed NATO’s proxy war against Russia in Ukraine and the need for an international movement against war. Germany, he said, played a central role in not only preparing for a third world war, but in concretely organizing it. In view of the historical experiences of the working class, this was deeply rooted, especially in Germany. When a participant raised the question of how to mobilise the working class, Peter Schwarz responded that the question of perspective was central.
UK: Police attack refuse workers’ picket in Wealden, England, arresting union officials
Workers must demand the dropping of all charges against three GMB trade union officials who were arrested last Friday in a blatant attack on the right to strike. The arrests took place as a strike by around 40 refuse workers against waste management firm Biffa, in Wealden, East Sussex, entered its fourth week. The sites provide domestic waste disposal for around 70,000 homes in the district overseen by Conservative Party-run Wealden District Council in Sussex. The police attack on the refuse workers’ pickets was a conscious political decision under conditions where the strike was having substantial impact, with rubbish piling up. The attack on Biffa waste workers coincides with a strike-breaking operation organised by Coventry council against HGV bin lorry drivers.
Jacobin attempts to resurrect image of pro-war Ocasio-Cortez, DSA
Bowman)At this point, the claim that anything Ocasio-Cortez and the DSA do is “against the forces of capitalism and reaction” is downright embarrassing. Ocasio-Cortez and the DSA members of Congress voted to spend such massive sums of money to pursue the geostrategic interests of Wall Street amid mass social suffering at home. Featherstone and Jacobin present the DSA slate as the spearhead of socialism, but the DSA recipients of Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement are not opponents of imperialist war. Other elected officials who declined to comment or did not return requests for comment included Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez; State senators Julia Salazar and Jabari Brisport; and Assembly members Zohran Kwame Mamdani, Marcela Mitaynes and Phara Souffrant Forrest. Such fecklessness is to be expected of Democratic Party politicians like those the DSA hopes to send to Albany.
Israeli ultra-nationalists and settlers attack Palestinians in “Flag March” through Jerusalem
Thousands of Israeli settlers and far right activists attacked Palestinians on Sunday as they marched through Jerusalem's Old City. Israeli thugs attacking Palestinians in Jerusalem's Old City on Jerusalem Day, an Israeli holiday celebrating the capture of the Old City during the 1967 Mideast war. They then marched through the Old City, before converging with the main march outside the Damascus Gate. Israelis wave national flags in front of Damascus Gate outside Jerusalem's Old City to mark Jerusalem Day, an Israeli holiday celebrating the capture of the Old City during the 1967 Mideast war. It has been prepared through the advocacy of communalist and ethno-religious politics, including ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, Israel’s Arab citizens and migrant workers.
US rail unions seek government-imposed contract settlement
Last week, the rail worker unions participated in three days of federally mediated contract talks with the Class I railroads, in which the unions have renewed a request that the talks be declared at an impasse. The unions would have workers believe that moving towards a PEB is a tactical masterstroke which would prompt the Biden White House to impose a contract favorable to railroaders. Indeed, the unions have imposed the terms of the injunction upon BNSF workers in the most expansive terms possible, using it to threaten rank-and-file opposition with legal action. Indeed, through his allies in the unions, Biden was able last year to keep wage increases among unionized workers even lower (3.3 percent) than among nonunion workers. The rail industry is critical not only to the economy but also to “national security.” The government needs the rails to be able to move military equipment and materiel into Ukraine and to prepare for war against China.
Contract talks break down for 70,000 Ontario hospital workers
The collective agreements between CUPE and the SEIU and the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) expired, respectively, last September and December. Hospital workers’ real wages have been steadily eroded since the hard-right Conservative government implemented Bill 124. Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been over 30,000 COVID-19 infections and more than 17 deaths among Ontario health care workers. The unrelenting all-sided health care crisis, the product of decades of cuts by governments of all stripes, has fueled a mass exodus of health care workers from the profession. Hospital workers will have no right to even vote on the new “collective agreements” that will bind them for the next two years.
Australia’s Labor government to intensify pro-business restructuring of universities
She promised a well-heeled gathering at an Australian Financial Review Higher Education Conference that a Labor government offered the best means of escalating the business restructuring of tertiary education. Plibersek spoke of boosting “national export income” from the “tens of billions of dollars” that universities generate each year. In other words, universities must intensify their exploitation of high fee-paying international students to offset chronic government underfunding. That system became the platform for successive governments, Labor and Coalition alike, to increasingly force universities to become drastically dependent on student fees and corporate revenues. In its budget media release, it said the Coalition government refused to recognise that “tertiary education is Australia’s fourth largest export industry contributing $40 billion to Australia’s total exports.” This means further turning tertiary education into a business to serve the profit interests of the Australian capitalist class.
Chinese premier details mounting problems for economy
The Chinese economy is facing some of its most serious problems in more than three decades as the government continues to battle to end the outbreak of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 through lockdowns of major cities and other public health measures. The situation was “to some degree worse” than it had been at the start of the pandemic in early 2020 when the Chinese economy contracted by 6.9 percent. Earlier this month it was reported that industrial production, one of the key drivers of the Chinese economy, had fallen 2.9 percent in April, retail sales had dropped 11 percent and car sales had almost halved. The sector accounts for between 25 percent and 30 percent of the Chinese economy. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the government and financial authorities were able to boost the economy through a massive stimulus package, involving increased spending and the expansion of credit.
Shanghai emerges out of lockdown after beating back Omicron
Shanghai, a city of 26 million inhabitants and China’s commercial hub, has beaten back the Omicron variant in just two months with fewer than 600 deaths. It also bears comparing the US and China on the state of the COVID pandemic considering Biden’s malicious statement. Since the pandemic, the US has reported over a million COVID deaths, with a population 4.2 times smaller than China’s.

“Nonunion drivers are getting paid better than us:” Car haul truckers in US determined to strike Tuesday night
The national contract for the Teamsters car haul division is set to expire Tuesday at midnight. In 2021, the Teamsters union signed a one-year extension to the five-year National Master Automobile Transporters Agreement that included an insulting 1.8 percent wage increase. During the last contract fight in 2017, rank-and-file workers voted down two Teamsters-backed concessionary contracts before the union rammed through a third deal. At the same time, car haulers can find powerful allies among rank-and-file autoworkers to block any attempt by the auto companies to use strikebreakers to transport vehicles. But this means taking the struggle into their own hands by forming rank-and-file committees, independent of the Teamsters union and all of its factions, including the TDU.
UN Human Rights High Commissioner condemned over China trip
Blinken’s “concerns” over Bachelet’s trip were amplified in more strident terms by Sophie Richardson, China Director of the US-based Human Rights Watch—an “independent” organisation that closely mirrors the “human rights” campaigns of the US State Department. “It is critical that counter-terrorism responses do not result in human rights violations,” she said. In broad outline, Bachelet voiced the anti-China “human rights” agenda that the US and its allies have been advancing for years. A question posed at Bachelet’s press conference on Saturday pointed to the utter hypocrisy of the US “human rights” campaigns against China and other countries. Far more egregious human rights abuses and crimes against humanity can be laid at the door of US imperialism.
California Chevron oil workers’ strike sabotaged by United Steelworkers in total sellout
On Saturday night, the United Steelworkers (USW) Local 5 in Richmond, California, claimed that workers had ratified a tentative agreement (TA) with Chevron. Chevron workers speak for all workers across the globe who are refusing to bear the cost of inflation expressed in the dramatic rise in the cost of food, fuel, rent and other necessities. It is for this reason that we urge workers to get involved with the Oil Workers Rank-and-File Committee. In auto, trucking, health care and across the entire working class, the grievances experienced by Chevron workers are broadly felt.

Following Uvalde massacre, Biden and Pelosi offer empty platitudes
The first funerals have began this weekend in Uvalde, Texas, for the 19 children and two teachers murdered in last Tuesday’s horrific mass killing. Many likely remembered Abbott hailing the “courageous” actions of the police during a town hall in Uvalde last Wednesday. In his speech at Delaware, Biden, referencing the two mass killings this month, said there was “Too much violence. Too much grief.”Crosses bearing the names of Tuesday's shooting victims are placed outside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, Thursday, May 26, 2022. As with the Buffalo massacre, when Biden spoke of the “insurrection” in his remarks to the Delaware graduates he never once mentioned the Republican Party or Trump by name.
Sri Lanka: Oppose job and wage cuts in the public sector! Build action committees to defend workers rights!
A previous “conception paper” issued on April 25 by the Manpower and Employment Ministry outlined extensive public sector expenditure and job cuts. It declared that more than 50 percent of government income was being used to pay salaries and allowances to 1.7 million public sector employees. Through this, the paper claimed, the government could cut public sector expenditure by 300 billion rupees per annum and increase Sri Lanka’s annual remittances by $US2.5 billion. State sector workers have already shown their readiness to fight the government attacks. Our action committees support the program advocated by the Socialist Equality Party (SEP) to combat the worsening social and living conditions.

Jennifer Aniston started therapy and a “new chapter” after divorce from Brad Pitt and Friends finale
Aniston stopped by the series finale of The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday where she discussed both the end of her marriage to Brad Pitt and the finale of Friends occurring back-to-back. When asked how she dealt with the hugely successful 10-season who coming to an end, she told DeGeneres with a laugh, “Well, I got a divorce and went into therapy. It worked great.”After almost five years of marriage, Aniston and Pitt announced they were separating in January 2005, finalizing their divorce in October of that year. To stay in a marriage based on fear feels like you're doing your one life a disservice. When the work has been put in and it doesn't seem that there's an option of it working, that's okay.

I’m an Asian American mom and an executive. This is what I’ve learned about successful leadership
That is different from needing to be a mom vs an executive: You can be both, at the same time, in the same place.

In 2020, Beekman 1802 began partnering with Ulta Beauty to sell its products in 400 retail stores across the country.
How This Founder Embraced His Critics and Raised $75 Million for a Mammoth Moonshot
The true goal driving the company though, Lamm tells Inc.'s What I Know podcast, was a moonshot: to bring back the woolly mammoth from extinction. Lamm and Church had approached investors secretly, aiming to raise an $8 million round of seed funding. Colossal has since gone on to raise more than $75 million. In part because re-creating a species is controversial, Colossal is operating with radical transparency to the public. That approach is related to a philosophy he holds dear, one that has helped drive him to start company after company. "
Buy this ports operator and get a free hedge fund
Ocean Wilsons (LSE: OCN) is a small, relatively obscure UK-listed company that could benefit from both trends. Taking the former first, Wilson Sons was set up in the Brazilian port of Salvador by two Scottish brothers, Edward and Fleetwood Pellow Wilson in 1837.

Transferring out of your final salary pension could cost you dear
The soaring cost of independent financial advice on transfers out of final salary pension schemes is causing mounting concern among pension experts, who warn that affordable advice is becoming increasingly difficult to find. Savers determined to transfer cash away from a final salary pension scheme will now face a bill running into thousands of pounds. The Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) view is that given the guaranteed (and often very generous) benefits provided by final salary pension schemes, transferring to another type of arrangement is a bad idea for most people. The regulator’s aim is to stem the flow of inappropriate transfers, but for some people moving out of a final salary scheme does make sense. Research published in March suggested the number of firms offering specialist advice on final salary pensions has fallen from around 3,000 four years ago to 1,160 today.

FIA Rejects Ferrari’s Protests Against Sergio Perez, Max Verstappen
The Monaco Grand Prix results will stand as the FIA rejects both of Ferrari’s protests against Sergio Pérez and Max Verstappen over alleged pit exit infractions. Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said, per Sky Sports, after the race that the protest was filed against Verstappen, but Binotto said one is against Pérez as well. “We believe that both Red Bulls were on the line, on the yellow line, exceeding the pit lane,” Binotto said in the Ferrari post-race press conference. Just to avoid confusion on the wording crossing, being on the line, you need to stay right on the right of the yellow line.

Former F1 Driver Marcus Ericsson Wins Indy 500
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Marcus Ericsson had to leave Formula One to become a global superstar — a goal achieved Sunday when the Swedish driver won the Indianapolis 500. A crash back in traffic brought out the caution and Ericsson coasted to the victory podium under yellow.

If you were holding out hope for a behind-the-scenes look at Harry and Meghan's Jubilee trip as part of their upcoming Netflix docuseries, it's time to rip the metaphorical bandaid off and give up on that dream, sadly. It would be such a bad look," one royal insider explained. This content is created and maintained by a third party, and imported onto this page to help users provide their email addresses.
‘Barry’ Season 3, Episode 6 Recap: 710N
Barry 710N Season 3 Episode 6 Editor’s Rating 4 stars * * * * « Previous Next « Previous Episode Next Episode » Photo: HBOIt’s important to remember that Barry is a comedy. Mitch’s scenes are probably the comedic peak of the episode — in no small part because of the actor’s unmoving deadpan. And there’s Sharon, the wife of Barry’s buddy Chris from season one, who gets the most done, inviting Barry to her own home and poisoning him. Even if Barry does manage to wriggle out of Sharon’s trap, Fuches is still busy recruiting potential backups. The episode frames him like a sort of boss-level threat as he calmly arranges a meeting with Fuches over the phone.
Dominic Fike Dating ‘Euphoria’ Co-Star Hunter Schafer
Dominic Fike, whose character (along with heroin) broke up power couple Rue/Jules a.k.a. “Rules” in season two of Euphoria, confirmed that he is dating Jules’s actress, Hunter Schafer. “Some people fall in love, like, fucking months after they meet, or years after,” Fike said in the June/July 2022 issue of GQ. In the GQ story, Fike says he went to the Prada store in Soho eight times in four days in order to see Schafer’s ads for the brand. But Fike said seeing giant photos of his gf was the “best part” of those trips.
John Oliver Takes on the ‘Satanic’ Georgia Guidestones
If you saw the tweets about the Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate that was running on “I’m the only avowed anti-Satanist” and thought gee that’s dumb, you’re not alone. And baby, it only gets dumber upon closer inspection. John Oliver explained how Kandiss Taylor managed run afoul of furries, the LGBTQIA+ community, and weirdest of all, dead white supremacists with her deeply confused/confusing campaign. What’s more, he gave us all a new daily affirmation to say into our mirrors every morning: “The furry days are over when I’m governor.” Try it yourself tomorrow morning!

Harry Styles Pledges $1 Million to Everytown for Gun Safety
On Saturday, May 28, it was reported that the pop star pledged $1 million of his current Love On Tour to the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, with Live Nation matching the donation. The singer is set to play 42 sold-out shows in North America before the end of 2022. During his 2018 tour, he made a point of sharing a close up of the “End Gun Violence” stickers on his guitar following a show in Dallas, Texas. He performed in June, less than a month after the Santa Fe High School shooting that left ten dead. And President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden arrived on Sunday to pay their respects at Robb Elementary School.

“Sex Education” producer Eleven has revealed a cast of rising stars for upcoming BBC and Netflix horror series “Red Rose.”Created by the Clarkson Twins – Michael and Paul (“See,” “The Haunting of Bly Manor”), the eight-part series explores the relationship between teenagers and their online lives.

It worked with children at Armley Park Primary School in Leeds, near to Burberry’s Yorkshire factories. The childrens’ creations have been enlarged and displayed on more than 80 bus stops throughout central London where the Platinum Jubilee Pageant will take place on Sunday, June 5. Burberry has also created a Jubilee commemorative scarf with patterns reflecting exploration and the outdoors. The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee silk square scarf will also adorn Burberry store flags and windows in the City of London, the company said.

Saudi Takeover Boosts Spanish Club Almería Back Into LaLiga
Andalucian soccer team Unión Deportiva Almería earned a promotion to LaLiga, Spain’s top soccer league on Sunday night. Al-Sheikh bought the Spanish club two years ago for approximately $20 million. It’s unclear if Al-Sheikh is using his own money on the club or if the Saudi state is involved. “If this is backed by the Saudi government, why did I come to Almería?” Mohammed El Assy, the chief executive of Almería told Spanish media in 2020. He spent millions of dollars to revamp the squad, rebranded the club as Pyramid FC and sold it after two seasons when the club finished third.
Meet the OnlyFans Creator Who Said She Slept With Instagram Employees to Get Her Account Back
It’s so common, in fact, that there’s a thriving black market of third-party vendors who are willing to get influencers’ accounts back for a fee. One enterprising creator, however, says she found a far more effective way to get her Instagram account back after it was removed: By having sex with a Meta employee. And then, when her account was removed again, she found another employee, and did it again. Kitty Lixo, an OnlyFans model, podcast host, and adult-content creator who had more than 150,000 followers before her account was recently removed by Instagram for a fourth time, recently went viral for an interview she gave on the podcast No Jumper. “These platforms need you because you’re a creator on their platform.
Billionaire Chase Coleman Pays $56 Million for Two Point Dume Homes
Last summer, Charles Payson “Chase” Coleman III was jogging a victory lap of life. Bloomberg had just crowned the Tiger Global Management chief, 46, as the world’s top-earning hedge fund manager of 2020, with a princely take-home haul of $3 billion. From early adulthood, Coleman was groomed to become a top financier by hedge fund legend Julian Robertson, a longtime family friend. As billionaires do, they didn’t just buy one property — they bought two homes, from two different sellers in two separate off-market deals totaling a whopping $56 million. One of them, a $21 million spread, is a landlocked property with no sea view, though it contains a brand-new contemporary mansion.
Paul Wellstone’s Legacy
A fixture of Wellstone’s campaign was a beat-up old school bus painted green and white with a speaker’s platform rigged onto the rear exit. Irked, Bush asked an aide, ?“Who is this chickenshit?”While serving in the Senate, Wellstone remained an organizer.. During most of Wellstone’s Senate career, the Democrats were the minority party. ?“There are people in the White House who wake up in the morning thinking about how they will defeat Paul Wellstone,” observed a senior Republican aide confided at the time. Wellstone’s legacy is memorialized in many ways, from the the schools and affordable housing projects named after him to the numerous fellowships and awards established to honor the Wellstones’ dedication to social justice.
The Koch Brothers’ Gun-Control Disinformation
The Charles Koch Foundation, which was founded in 1974 and then changed its name to the Cato Institute two years later, would like you to know something about gun control. In a commentary titled ?“Gun Control, Myths and Realities,” their director of publications, David Lampo, writes:[T]he facts show that there is simply no correlation between gun control laws and murder or suicide rates across a wide spectrum of nations and cultures. She’s an expert who’s actually researched the issue of gun control and gun violence in Israel and Switzerland. Instead of keeping guns in people’s homes, she told Klein, in Switzerland, ?“They’ve been moving to keeping the guns in depots. As Rosenbaum told Klein, ?“In Israel, it used to be that all soldiers would take the guns home with them.
Eugene V. Debs: Socialist Internationalism Versus Capitalist Nationalism
“True socialists,” Debs wrote, “cannot at the same time be nationalists, militarists and capitalist ‘patriots.’ . The United States still hadn’t entered the war, and Debs wanted to keep it that way. If the principles of socialism have not international application and if the socialist movement is not an international movement then its whole philosophy is false and the movement has no reason for existence. True socialists cannot at the same time be nationalists, militarists, and capitalist “patriots.” They are either one or the other; they cannot be both. THE SOCIALIST MOVEMENT IF IT STANDS AT ALL MUST STAND UNFLINCHINGLY AND UNCOMPROMISINGLY FOR SOCIALIST INTERNATIONALISM VERSUS CAPITALIST NATIONALISM!
They Pick Food All Day, But Many Farmworkers Go to Sleep Hungry
Farmworkers forced to shop late at night have frequently been met with depleted shelves ever since the early days of the pandemic. For immigrant farmworkers, food is in short supply: ?“The only thing close to that place is a gas station,” Guerrero told me. Yet the need is widespread — in Idaho and elsewhere where farmworkers are needed — and even the best-organized mutual aid projects can’t meet the demand. Local food pantries try, but they’re not always an answer. Even though these immigrant communities are the primary audience for many food pantries, the canned and boxed food they provide can be unrecognizable to the people they serve.

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

LGBTQ Literature: Y'all Means All: The Emerging Voices Queering Appalachia
That’s part of why I was so drawn to Z. Zane McNeill’s new edited collection Y’all Means All: The Emerging Voices Queering Appalachia. Y'all Means All is a celebration of the weird and wonderful aspects of a troubled region in all of their manifest glory! I’m not sure if it’s a coincidence that, right after reading this chapter in Y’all Means All, I came across this bumper sticker on Reddit. In this case, Mothman discourse can at least be used for identity work related to Appalachian queer, and queer-Appalachian identities. Whether or not you’re from Appalachia, Y’all Means All will certainly reshape and complicate your understanding of the region.

School Shootings
That's why no other developed country has the epidemic of mass school shootings that America does. School children in so many other countries are safer than American school children. They block gun laws, health care for all, food assistance, funding for early childhood education and college education. He points his finger at everyone but himself, yet he is the one who loosened gun laws in that state. The schools have done about all they can, and still we have more school shootings than any other country in the world.
The Two Steps To Take To Attack Gun Violence
An Eagle In Disguise Doing What Must Be DoneThere are really only two steps the country must take to solve the current mass-murder-shooting epidemic. Now, I am not naive, and neither am I unaware of the complications of both of those needed steps. So, it is time now to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to achieve those two steps, and worry about sorting it out later. They may be home-grown gun mass-murder profiteering gun-runners, but that only makes them even more despicable. It can, we can help, and so the President should declare a NATIONAL MASS-MURDER GUN EMERGENCY, and do whatever it takes after that.
Less than 6 days later, another Mass Shooting
Less than six days later, there was another Mass Shooting in Taft, Oklahoma where eight people were shot, killing one thus far and wounding seven others. Can we not just learn to talk with one another, even argue with one another without pulling out the guns and shooting and killing one another? Violence begets violence. To our almighty and powerful Father in heaven, please end the gun violence within this country. Please get each of us to love our enemies as much as we love our family and friends and as much as JESUS has loved and does love us.
Watch Me Club This Beast Into Submission Like It Was a Libtard
The red-faced, nearly teary-eyed Trump Jr. shouted that the shooter was a “sociopath” who could wreak the same havoc with nearly any other weapon. “ It’s the gun; it’s not the sociopath wielding it,” people are claiming, he complained. “He wouldn’t have done the exact same thing with a bat, or a bomb, or some sort of improvised device — or a machete?” he added. The real problem is that people are “screwed up,” and we have “crazy teachers” and “indoctrination programs” in our schools, he insisted. Did he also say, “Eric, you catch him and hold him, and I’ll club him?”www.huffpost.com/...
Update on Bar Complaints
However, some kind of deadline passed in March, and most of us who had filed complaints believed that something was afoot. I then searched to check the status of other bar complaints. Attorneys, State Bar Disciplinary officials, and academics in legal ethics. Which leads me to ask if a response to a bar complaint itself contains lies, does this constitute a new and additional charge? But—like with Giuliani—the bar disciplinary complaint itself is still pending.
Wyoming: previous guy is workshopping new material because it's easy to attack children
Trump tried out new material since it’s easy to punch downward. President Donald Trump had decided to focus his new rallies around attacking transgender children. By 2022, Politico explained that Trump's new campaign is going after minors. In a 90-minute rant in Casper, Wyoming on Saturday, Trump attacked Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who is one of the Republicans on the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Instead of discussing issues that those in Wyoming care about most, he took a different turn.

Gun-Toting Teachers!
Anyone who feels that their best solution to their life’s challenges is to open fire on others is obvious a deeply troubled soul. And instead of limiting access to these weapons, they suggest arming the teachers and school staff as a viable corrective measure! -These school staff are then responsible for the safety of the students, potentially blamed for failing to stop future assaults. -If these Neo Era School Teachers (NESTers) become a governmental fighting force, well, their wages must increase dramatically! taylor greene etc, consider arming school teachers and staff instead of controlling the weapons?..

The report, "Unequal Resources for Long Island Students Based on Race," focuses on 66 Long Island school districts. school districts, on average, spend nearly $10,000 less per student each year than the predominantly white school districts. school districts face both financial and environmental stress and have significantly higher teacher turnover.

He instead held an in-person press conference in Uvalde and sent a pre-recorded message to the NRA audience. And there will be laws in multiple different subject areas," Abbott added during the Uvalde press conference.

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

This is what happens when a bird flies in front of your live camera background shot of the US Capitol building, Oh wait. It has to be an evil fascist Republican plot or something. I’m tellin’ ya!
Patriarch Kirill sends up a carefully coded distress flare
Among other things, when Russia invaded Ukraine Kirill publicly supported Putin’s line that Russian land includes Ukraine, Belarus and elsewhere. So it’s remarkable that today at Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior, Kirill reacted to this week’s decision by the Ukrainian Orthodox Church to break away from Kirill’s control, saying that he understood the decision, and that:We fully understand how the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is suffering today. Although a small sign by itself, this is not the only evidence of cracks in the Moscow patriarchy’s support for the invasion of Ukraine. Perhaps Kirill’s expression of sympathy for the Ukrainian Orthodox Church today is a sign of further political maneuvering within the Moscow patriarchy. 22% identified with the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (OCU), reestablished in 1990 as being independent from Moscow.

KosAbility: Who else feels like one of the only people still actively avoiding covid19? (poll)
Yesterday, I read that the number of new covid19 cases in the U.S. right now is five times higher than a year ago. Below are some resources about covid risk assessment, long covid, and psychological and social aspects of risk assessments. ‘If you’d prefer to avoid COVID & have become less cautious, it’s time to re-think.’ Wachter cited his concerns about long COVID and other virus-related risks (”heart/neuro/diabetes”). For most, their initial infection didn’t require hospitalization, but long Covid lasted months. A small #NIH study found those likely to suffer from Long COVID had Type 2 diabetes, reactivated Epstein-Barr virus, or autoantibodies when they had COVID-19.
You Do Realize You're the Government, Right?
Republican congressman Mo Brooks of Alabama said about one of the stupidest things you’d imagine a Republican congressman from Alabama could say today, and that’s saying something. As News Corpse diaried it, “Brooks Warns that Guns are Needed to ‘Take Back Our Government.’”Which quote immediately sent me down dark corridors of thought. Mo Brooks is in Congress. You’re the government.”I don’t know if this could be an effective message to get people thinking—and voting. But it’s what I said to the guy in line at the store.
Agribusiness firm altered report to build on sacred land—plantation, cemetery of enslaved people
… They came to us for our expertise, and they got a professional report that is factual,” Edwards told ProPublica in an email. “If they build this, this community will not survive,” Joy Banner told ProPublica. … The trauma of not being able to talk freely about our own history is hurting our communities,” Joy Banner told ProPublica. “We at the Corps are seeing adverse impacts,” Ricky Boyett, chief of public affairs for the New Orleans District, told ProPublica. … We need to do a little more research on those as well.”The permit for the grain elevator remains under review, Boyett told ProPublica.
Hakeem Jeffries posts Most Relevant Tweet of 2022
I doubt anything will top this:An extreme political party that makes it harder to vote and easier to die of gun violence is unfit to govern. We heard the same exact excuses from the Republican extremists three years ago, after the Pulse Nightclub shootings. Back then a few Republicans feigned moderation just long enough for the public’s anger and revulsion to die down. Much like they are doing now.
They are going to come for you, anyway
I don’t write for autocrats. I certainly don’t write for the men who carry their water. I don’t write for the special club of press or legislators or lobbyists. I write for the people and the day I stop doing that is the day I am done writing, period. Back to that epiphany:Whether I speak the truth politely or I shout it from the mountaintop with as much feeling in my chest as I can muster — the world’s merchants of hate and chaos are going to come for me, anyway.

'Big enough to swing elections': Democrats target AAPI voters with new super PAC
Despite the increased violence they have been facing in the last few years, Asian Americans are making strides nationwide. But while the jump was high and AAPI voters outpaced all other ethnic groups in every single battleground state, overall participation remains low. “They’re really the nucleus of AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) communities across the community. The effort is one of the first to target the AAPI community. The AAPI community needs our support now more than ever.
Biden visits Uvalde while GOP repeats talking points: Defend AR-15s, blame lacking 'moral values'
x Greg Abbott is booed as he arrives at the memorial outside Uvalde Elementary. They had refused for more than an hour to enter the room where children were being massacred. “Having been to war and having used many many weapons of war, I don't really classify these rifles as weapons of war,” he said. “We use them, (...) but they’re more our self defense weapon.”x Dan Crenshaw gunsplains why Actually, AR-15s aren't weapons of war pic.twitter.com/tPlOTh7QJ6 — Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) May 29, 2022Rep.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Manhattanhenge Is Back for Picture-Perfect Sunsets on New York’s Grid
It can produce, when the weather cooperates, four of the most striking sunsets of the year in New York City. The name is a New Yorker-style nod to Stonehenge, the ancient rock structure in the English countryside that aligns with the sunsets and sunrises during the summer and winter solstices. In contrast, the grid of New York City was not designed with sunsets in mind, but it has ended up functioning in a similar manner. An event like Manhattanhenge can halt the entire borough, beckoning people to celebrate an otherwise normal daily sunset. As if New York couldn’t become any more magical, the sunsets of Manhattanhenge illuminate the streets with a glow of deep tangerine and bubble gum pink, transforming the bustling streets into a place to pause and say, “wow.”

After a Late Red Flag, a Thrilling Sprint to the Indy 500 Finish
What seemed like an easy, sure victory turned into one of the most dramatic finishes in recent memory, as Marcus Ericsson held on after a late restart to win the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500. With five laps to go, Ericsson, a 31-year-old Swedish driver, held a nearly three-second lead on Pato O’Ward, the 23-year-old Mexican driver for Arrow McLaren SP.

In a two-lap shootout after the restart, Ericsson wove left and right to disrupt the slipstream and fight off an intense charge from O’Ward to take the checkered flag. “I knew the car was fast enough, but it was still hard,” Ericsson told NBC after the race.

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

A Big Lie in a New Package
“I want to make very clear that we’re not suggesting that the ballots that were cast were illegal ballots. A repeated contention of the documentary is that getting paid to deliver other peoples’ ballots is illegal in every state. The swing states where Ms. Phillips and Ms. Engelbrecht focused their research do ban the delivery of ballots on behalf of others, with some exceptions. But elections officers in 16 other states surveyed by The Times said their states did not prohibit people getting paid to deliver a ballot.

Winning the Skies Without Losing Your Lunch: Filming ‘Top Gun: Maverick’
Before Tom Cruise signed on to star in the original “Top Gun,” he asked to take a test flight in a jet. Zipping at 6.5 G’s — more than twice the G-forces some astronauts endure during rocket launches — Cruise felt the blood drain from his head. Cruise continued to fly so fast, and so frequently, that he learned to squeeze his thighs and abs to stay conscious. Pete Mitchell (known as Maverick) readies a dozen young pilots for a dangerous mission to destroy an underground uranium plant in an enemy land. “He’s got every kind of pilot’s license that you could possibly imagine — helicopters, jets, whatever,” Bruckheimer said.

The Dutchman was ultimately prioritized over Pérez, and Red Bull principal Christian Horner defended the team’s decision to move Verstappen ahead. Verstappen, though, was also struggling with his DRS (drag reduction system), which impacted his ability to pass Russell. Russell managed to keep Verstappen behind him for 19 laps. So both drivers worked together as a team and to get the maximum points today was hugely important when Ferrari had an issue.”Verstappen and Red Bull now lead both the driver and Constructor standings heading into this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix.

Sergio Pérez Says Cool Tires Caused His Monaco GP Qualifying Wreck
Sergio Pérez went on a flying final qualifying lap on Saturday behind Charles Leclerc, but as he rounded the Portier, the Red Bull driver spun, losing the rear as he collided backwards into the barriers. And just moments later, Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz hit Pérez’s right-front wheel, unable to stop in time for the yellow flags. Pérez ended up being sent to the medical center because his car’s G-sensor registered a hard enough impact that required him to be checked. “I think the strategy with the tire, especially that final set—it wasn’t up to temperature, and it was just too peaky,” Pérez said. But as soon as I touched the throttle, I could feel like the rear tire was not gripping in.

Former F1 Boss Arrested in Brazil for Illegally Carrying Gun at AirportSAO PAULO (AP) — Former Formula One head Bernie Ecclestone was arrested in Brazil for having a gun while boarding a plane, police said Thursday.

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

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

Sergio Perez Becomes First Mexican Driver to Win Monaco Grand Prix
MONACO (AP) — Sergio Pérez rebounded from Red Bull team orders that denied him a chance to race for the win one week ago to pick up his first Formula One win of the season in the rain-marred Monaco Grand Prix. Although Leclerc finished the race for the first time in four tries, he finished fourth and allowed reigning world champion Max Verstappen to extend his lead in the points standings. Carlos Sainz Jr. finished second for Ferrari and Verstappen was third for Red Bull. But the win went to Verstappen's teammate just one week after Pérez was ordered to cede the lead to Verstappen during the Spanish Grand Prix. “You dream of winning this, and after your home race, there is no place more special to win,” Pérez said after waving the Mexican flag.

Celtics vs. Heat: Seven Questions on Game 7
Celtics vs. Heat. It may not be more simple for Miami in Game 7 than getting a great Butler game as opposed to a mediocre one. Nothing will be easy for the Celtics on Sunday night against a confident Heat team that features several gutsy veterans who won’t be rattled by the moment. And while the Heat have pushed them, for large stretches of this series Boston has controlled the action on the floor. I also worry slightly about an emotional letdown for the Heat after the rush of that Game 6 win.
Video of Tommy Pham Slapping Joc Pederson Has Leaked
Reds outfielder Tommy Pham slapped Giants outfielder Joc Pederson on Friday night, leading to one of the strangest sports feuds in recent memory. The video shows Pham approaching Pederson and one other member of the Giants, and slapping Pederson before both teams converged to separate the two. The issue between the team seemed to stem from whether Pederson properly used Injured Reserve on Jeff Wilson despite Wilson not actually being on IR. Pham also claimed that Pederson “disrespected” the Padres in a group text, which prompted Pederson to show the media the specific text he sent. Pederson said Pham dropped out of the league in the middle of the season in part due to this issue.

Tuskegee Coach Says He Got Death Threats Over Nick Saban Comments
Tuskegee football coach and athletic director Reginald Ruffin suggested last week that Alabama should schedule more games vs. HBCU programs. Ruffin said Wednesday he received death threats for those comments. “To see those comments over what was misconstrued from my post—my post was not to suggest to coach [Saban], to tell coach or demand coach or tell him what to do,” Ruffin told HBCU Sports’s Kendrick Marshall. Ruffin’s post suggested Alabama rotate games between HBCUs in Alabama, which he thinks would be good for both sides. He also added he wants HBCUs to have more exposure against the best teams, especially against teams that are in the same state.
Barclays Center Stampede Injures 10 After False Reports of Active Shooter
At least 10 people were injured at Barclays Center in Brooklyn early Sunday morning when a stampede erupted due to a suspected active shooter in the arena. Barclays played host to the boxing match between Gervonta “Tank” Davis and Rolando Romero, which began and ended after midnight.

Sadio Mane Expected to Leave Liverpool, per Reports
Liverpool star Sadio Mané is set to leave the club this summer, according to multiple reports. The Athletic’s James Pearce reported that Mané is expected to leave the club, although no deal has been announced amid reports that a move to Bayern Munich is imminent. Mané, whose current contract with Liverpool has one year remaining, said last week that he would announce a decision on his future shortly after the Champions League final, which Liverpool lost to Real Madrid on Saturday.

Mike Breen Won’t Call Celtics-Heat Game 7 Due to COVID-19, per Report
ESPN announcer Mike Breen tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss tonight’s Game 7 between the Celtics and Heat, The New York Posts’s Andrew Marchand reports. Marchand added that ESPN hopes Breen will clear protocols by Thursday, when the NBA Finals is scheduled to begin. Mark Jones will announce the game with Mark Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy in Breen’s place. Breen has been ESPN’s main NBA play-by-play since 2006, when he took over for Al Michaels, having been the voice of the NBA Finals for every year in that span. Sunday’s game will be the last NBA game until Thursday, which should give Breen enough time to return for Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

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

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

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

How Rumors of an Active Shooter at Barclays Left 10 People Injured
Soon, rumors of an active shooter spread throughout the crowd, causing chaos and a stampede that police say sent ten people to the hospital. Early reports suggested that there had been gunfire just outside of Barclays, with a Barclays Center security supervisor reportedly telling ESPN that someone with a gun was seen just outside the stadium. “I was so confused, my adrenaline was pumping,” Joshua, a teen who was on an escalator when he heard the loud noises, told ABC. Scary moment as crowds pour back into Barclays Center, my fear was a shooting but those fears proved unfounded. Some reports suggest it came from outside Barclays Center, but ABC reported that police believed the noises to have been a trash can kicked over by a pumped-up fan.
Theory: Top Gun: Maverick Is (Mostly) a Death Dream
Photo: Paramount PicturesTom Cruise’s character dies at the start of Top Gun: Maverick. But it’s more fun to imagine the film is a death dream, an Incident at Owl Creek Bridge fantasy taking place in the instant before Maverick blinks out of existence high above the Mojave Desert. This gives Maverick just enough time for one last flight, and one last attempt to save the program from getting scrapped. Though what really makes this theory so satisfying is that the unspoken theme of Top Gun: Maverick, like all recent additions to Cruise’s filmography, is that Tom Cruise will never die. Top Gun: Maverick may be wonderfully absurd, but its absurdity is that of someone dreaming impossible dreams right before they burn up in the atmosphere.
All the Tom Cruise Movies Top Gun: Maverick Basically Rolls into One
All of that Cruiseyness runs deep in the veins of Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to 1986’s Top Gun. Top Gun: Maverick is basically just Top Gun again. Look, when Tom Cruise, also an EP of Top Gun: Maverick, promises the world he’s going to make another Top Gun movie, he really means he’s going to make another Top Gun. Top Gun: Maverick is Risky BusinessAdmittedly this is a bit of a stretch since Top Gun: Maverick is not about a prostitution business or trying to get into Princeton or contending with Guido the Killer Pimp. Top Gun: Maverick is, at its essence, a film that asks us to believe the world revolves around Tom Cruise.
