          Women Will Work For Free From Now Until The End Of The Year, Says Charity   

Monday 9 November marks Equal Pay Day in the UK. The Fawcett Society claims that it will take over 50 years to close the gender pay gap.

Monday 9 November marks the day when women working full-time essentially stop earning and work for free the rest of the year, the UK's leading gender equality charity announced today.

Women are paid on average 14.2% less an hour than men according to the Fawcett Society, which analysed 2014 data on the average full-time hourly earnings for men and women using the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics.

After subtracting the percentage difference of average earnings from 100%, the findings revealed women are paid on average 14.2% less an hour than men.

Equal Pay Day was then calculated by subtracting 14.2% of the year (52 days) from the end of the year, producing today's date.

The gender pay gap has declined by 1.3% in the last five years. At this rate of progress, it will take over 50 years to close the gap, the charity claims.

"Progress has stalled in recent years but with real commitment from government and employers, together with action from women and men at work, we could speed up progress towards the day when we can consign it to history," Sam Smethers, the Fawcett Society's chief executive, said in a statement.

Earlier this year, prime minister David Cameron pledged to "end the gender pay gap in a generation". The Conservative government made it mandatory for large companies to publish information about the gender differences in average earnings.

The government claims the national living wage of £7.20 per hour will also help with the pay gap.

          Apology To Mardi Gras '78ers Could Be A Reality In Next NSW Parliament   

A step closer to equality.

At a state election forum on Wednesday night, a panel of cross-party MPs unanimously supported an apology to the LGBTI community for police activity at the first Mardi Gras in 1978.

At a state election forum on Wednesday night, a panel of cross-party MPs unanimously supported an apology to the LGBTI community for police activity at the first Mardi Gras in 1978.

Lane Sainty / BuzzFeed News

The panel, hosted by the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, consisted of five MPs from the NSW Parliamentary LGBTI Working Group. Trevor Khan represented the Nationals, Bruce Notley-Smith the Liberals, Penny Sharpe Labor, Mehreen Faruqi the Greens and Independent MP Alex Greenwich was also present.

The 1978 march.

ABC / Via abc.net.au

Mr Warren took part in Sydney's first Mardi Gras on June 24, 1978, where he witnessed friends being arrested and subjected to violence from the police. 53 people were arrested altogether, and subsequently had their names published in The Sydney Morning Herald, leading to job losses and harassment.

"I would like [the apology] to be worded in a way that highlights the discrimination and injustice to our whole community before and after 1978 until the law changed in 1984," Mr Warren told BuzzFeed News.

An apology had been discussed over the past decade, but came up in formal discussions recently as convictions for adults having consensual homosexual sex were expunged last year, said Mr Warren. 



The expungement coincided with the 30th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexual sex in NSW in 1984.

          Marlo Thomas Reflects On What's Changed For Women Since "Free To Be You And Me" — And What Hasn't   

“In 1972, there was no woman in the Senate. Now we have 20 women in the Senate, and all of them are married, and they all have children.”

Marlo Thomas in the Free To Be You And Me TV special

Courtesy of Marlo Thomas

One of my earliest memories is being probably 3 or 4 years old, and listening to the Free to Be You and Me album on my Holly Hobbie record player, over and over. It was the early '80s, my mom had a subscription to Ms. Magazine, the Equal Rights Amendment hadn't failed yet, and the promised land of gender equality seemed, if not immediately within sight, then perhaps not too far off. Free to Be — which had come out as an album and book in 1972 and aired as a musical TV special on ABC in March 1974 starring co-creator Marlo Thomas, along with Alan Alda, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, and many others — told the stories, through a series of songs and brief sketches, of little boys who have dolls, little girls who want to be engineers, princesses who don't want to get married, moms who are ranchers and doctors, and dads who take care of their kids. It was an indelible turning point in the conversation around male and female roles, and particularly for the generation that was raised singing along to its music (and their parents), its legacy endures in the zeitgeist even 40 years later. In the new Amazon pilot Transparent, the ringer of one of the mom's phones is the first few bars of the opening song: "There's a land that I see / Where the children are free / And I see it ain't far to this land from where we are..."

But certainly much of what felt revolutionary in the '70s and '80s feels dated, or obvious, now; Dick Cavett has a 30-second bit from the perspective of a little kid trying to figure out if his dog is a boy or a girl: "Perhaps he's a girl, which kind of makes sense — since he can't throw a ball and he can't climb a fence. But neither can Dad, and I know he's a man. And Mom is a woman, and she drives a van." And it's a world where same-sex couples just don't exist. But it's also somewhat dispiriting to listen to the album again, in this age of leaning in and having it all, and realize just how much farther we have to go — and how in some ways, particularly when it comes to rigidly gender-normative children's toys, we seem to have slid backward. (I was, however, heartened to discover that I still remembered almost all the words to the songs.)

The 40th anniversary of the TV special will be commemorated this weekend when the Paley Center for Media screens Free to Be in its entirety in New York and Los Angeles, and then again on Tuesday, March 11, when the New York location hosts a panel on Free to Be at 40, moderated by Marlo Thomas and Gloria Steinem.

When I spoke this week with Thomas, who is now 76, she had a lot to say about Free to Be's continued relevance, women in entertainment, princesses, and who she'll be campaigning for in 2016.

Which of the songs do you feel like are really timeless? And which ones feel dated to you now?

Marlo Thomas: Actually, none of them feel dated. I wish they did. If they felt dated, then maybe our culture would have progressed further along.

That's a good point.

MT: I think really all children need to hear that it's all right to cry and that boys and girls are pretty much the same except for something in their underwear, and that mommies and daddies are people, and that we're all sisters and brothers. I don't really think there's anything on Free to Be that is dated. I think the one thing that's dated is we don't have anything about same-sex marriage and families with two moms or two dads. But other than that, I think we pretty much cover it, about what it's like to grow up in a family.

On songs like "William Wants a Doll" — do you think it's still weird for boys to have dolls? Is the message in that song still resonant?

MT: I think the terrible thing is that it's even more so. It seems to have snapped back. Right after Free to Be and in the decade after that, toys did start to change and become a little more unisex, but now when you walk through FAO Schwarz, there's the pink section and the blue section. So unfortunately, it's interesting that you bring that one up because that's kind of sad that that isn't dated. But also, it's about bullying too, isn't it?

What do you mean?

MT: Well, the children bully William. They make fun of him and they mock him: "William wants a do-oll." They laugh at him. It's a lot about bullying too.

Bullying wasn't as much of an issue then as it is now.

MT: We didn't have the cyberspace then — we just had school and then it would be over. But now it follows you home and it's on the web, and it's pretty devastating, what it can do.

          Трамп вновь раскритиковал CNN, назвав ее материалы низкопробной журналистикой   

ВАШИНГТОН, 1 июля. /ТАСС/. Президент США Дональд Трамп в субботу вновь раскритиковал телекомпанию CNN, обвинив ее в распространении лживых новостей и низкопробной журналистики. Такую позицию глава государства изложил на своей странице в Twitter. «Мне очень приятно видеть, что CNN, наконец, разоблачили как [СМИ, распространяющее] лживые новости и низкопробную журналистику. Самое время!» — написал он. Телекомпания CNN 22 июня опубликовала материал, в котором со ссылкой на источник утверждалось, что американский финансист Энтони Скарамуччи и глава Российского фонда прямых инвестиций (РФПИ) Кирилл Дмитриев встречались 16 января 2017 года на Всемирном экономическом форуме в швейцарском Давосе. В статье говорилось, что спецкомитет по разведке Сената Конгресса США начал расследование, чтобы выяснить, подавал ли Скарамуччи Дмитриеву надежды на скорое смягчение антироссийских санкций, введенных США в связи с событиями на Украине в 2014 году. Сразу после публикации материала РФПИ указал на существенные фактические ошибки, которые просил скорректировать. Корректив не последовало, но вскоре CNN удалила статью по причине ее несоответствия «редакционным стандартам», и при этом принесла извинения американскому финансисту. В минувшее воскресенье информационный портал BuzzFeed сообщил, что руководство телеканала ужесточает правила публикаций материалов, связанных с Россией. Во вторник три сотрудника CNN уволились в связи со скандалом. Источник новости

          President Trump adds violently anti-transgender activist Bethany Kozma to Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Rights   

Anti-transgender activist is latest to be added to the most anti-LGBTQ administration in recent memory

NEW YORK – Yesterday, reports surfaced that President Trump appointed Bethany Kozma to serve as Senior Advisor to the Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment at the US Agency for International Development. Kozma’s qualification for the role? She is known for being an anti-transgender activist, and, through this appointment, the Trump Administration has added yet another anti-LGBTQ activist to what has already been the most anti-LGBTQ administration in recent memory.

“When you google the name Bethany Kozma the first hit is a screed against transgender youth, but that’s not surprising since President Trump has been recruiting from a pool of the most vehemently anti-LGBTQ activists to run our great nation,” said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “At a time when transgender women are facing rising levels of violence and income inequality, appointing someone to this post who has dedicated their life to harming transgender youth is a slap in the face to LGBTQ Americans and a huge leap in the wrong direction which could place some of the most marginalized Americans directly in harm’s way.”

Bethany Kozma has a history of peddling false and defamatory myths about transgender people. Her anti-LGBTQ activist work includes published work at the Daily Signal, a publication managed by the Heritage Foundation, and partnerships with anti-LGBTQ hate groups such as the Family Research Council. Kozma was one of the most visible leaders in a campaign to bar transgender students access to bathrooms corresponding with their gender identity at school.

Check out more of Kozma’s anti-LGBTQ record below as well as the anti-LGBTQ records of the entire Trump Administration by visiting GLAAD’s Trump Accountability Project.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Bethany Kozma, Senior Advisor to the Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment at the USAID

-- Testified to her local school board that there is a direct link between sexual predators and trans access to facilities. “Imagine how predators will be emboldened and enabled, endangering other young girls if they are allowed to enter girls facilities and protected under your current policy.” (Begins at 17:10)

-- Informed her school board that the next superintendent must “not violate Title IX, not just in the female sports by allowing males to unfairly compete and possibly severely injure the girls, but also not allow males to take over bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms and push out females, denying them their right for privacy and safety.” (Begins at 53:55)

-- Warned another Virginia school board that fair bathroom policy “allows the man who identifies as the woman” into facilities and “tells young girls who are students that you don’t care how they feel and you will be discriminating against your own students, potentially opening them up to sexual harassment...sexual assault or rape.” (Begins at 8:50)

-- Response to a gender services clinic in Seattle: “This is horrible- a place where our children will be sterilized

-- Attempted to discredit the identities of transgender youth by referring to trans kids as  “gender confused children.”

-- Partnered with anti-LGBTQ hate groups including Family Research Council in a campaign to overturn the Obama Department of Education guidance for transgender students.

          After Backlash, Agriculture Department Lifts Gag-Order On Taxpayer-Funded Scientists   
Just one day after directing its researchers not to publicly share their research, and after suffering a public relations backlash, the Department of Agriculture’s main research arm has rescinded its original order, saying it “values and is committed to maintaining the free flow of information between our scientists and the American public…” Some employees of the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS) received an email Monday from the division’s chief of staff ordering them to stop publicizing their work . On Tuesday evening, the division’s chief administrator sent an email, which was obtained by Harvest Public Media, walking back the directive. “ARS has not blacked out public information,” Chavonda Jacobs-Young wrote in the email. The Agriculture Department found itself in hot water when news of the communication restrictions became public in a report from Buzzfeed News . “Starting immediately and until further notice, ARS will not release any public-facing documents,” the

Employees of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s main research arm, the Agricultural Research Service (ARS), received an email from the division’s chief of staff ordering them to stop publicizing their work. “Starting immediately and until further notice, ARS will not release any public-facing documents,” the email from Sharon Drumm reads, in part. “This includes, but is not limited to, news releases, photos, fact sheets, news feeds, and social media content.” The order does not apply to publications released through professional journals, according to a statement by Christopher Bentley, ARS’ director of communications. Buzzfeed News first reported the existence of the memo . The directive comes as President Donald Trump begins his term and before his nominee for Agriculture Secretary, former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue , undergoes U.S. Senate confirmation

          Germanwings : témoignage de la "petite amie" du pilote démonté (Buzzfeed) (7 réponses)   
La "petite amie" d'Andreas Lubitz, le pilote de la Germanwings responsable d'un crash d'avion dans les Alpes il y a plus de deux ans, avait donc "tout inventé". En mars 2015, quelques jours après le crash, le tabloïd Bild avait publié une interview d'une mystérieuse Maria W., qui se disait ex-petite amie de Lubitz et prétendait se souvenir qu'il avait prédit son propre suicide. Son histoire avait largement été reprise dans les médias français. Le 20 juin, plus de deux ans après le drame, la version allemande de Buzzfeed News a définitivement rétabli la vérité.
Une fausse petite amie pour un vrai drame. Le 24 mars 2015, le vol 9525 de la Germanwings reliant Barcelone à Düsseldorf s'écrasait dans les Alpes, tuant les 150 personnes à son bord. L'enquête s'était alors rapidement orientée vers un geste volontaire de la part du copilote Andreas Lubitz, qui s'était retrouvé seul dans la cabine de pilotage. Une thèse retenue par la justice alleman...

          知乎:如何看待CNN制作人承认川普通俄的报道完全是编造的?   
准确来说,不算是承认。公布此次视频的“真相项目”向来都以偷拍跟踪见长,这段视频无疑也是“真相项目”记者卧底偷拍的。 这个记者在闲聊之中被诱导说出了重磅炸弹,估计他自己也没料到会闹出这么大风波。新闻界将新闻伦理抛于脑后,为了收视率不择手段早已是人尽皆知,只不过没有人捅破这层窗户纸。这段视频只不过是把这段大家早已知晓的事实公之于众。这段视频的意义不在于他揭示了新闻界的唯利是图,而在于为川普洗刷了冤屈。这段视频很多地方信息量巨大,非常值得玩味。 v2-fdf70a9e2926619f398eb48f238304be_b 关键信息1:没有确凿证据 v2-337e6c183d261b603006a45346787fc6_b 关键信息2:美俄互相干预已是常态。 v2-e823c87b2990974931ab6f3b6edfdf14_b 关键信息3:炒作通俄门就是为了收视率,没啥事实根据 v2-0adab327eba8a4e436b8ec05038d6380_b 关键信息4:新闻伦理都是狗屁,这就是个赚钱的生意。 v2-fa8c89cdc59d4e69530a01cc5ed48914_b 关键信息5:炒作通俄门是为了增加cnn观众,cnn观众少的可怜 v2-c12671b575ee78a3175fd1c34a500222_b v2-18896eead06687ee4fb5d2cc016d6a39_b v2-311638141a3657e01dd366423a18bdae_b 关键信息6:直接表明cnn是利用了群众“恐川”心理来炒作通俄门,如果换奥巴马,他们绝不敢这么干,因为群众对于奥巴马愚蠢的爱和对川普愚蠢的恨,他们由此可以为所欲为,颠倒事实,群众是最大的帮凶。再次证明美国群众的智商十分之低。 v2-acdb58cb57da7df0e977bf30caa82ee4_b 关键信息7:cnn的观众大部分是白左,白左的愚蠢养活了cnn,白左就是谣言传播的最大帮凶。 v2-4c6024f6204a803449fdb6356761af17_b 在诸多白左的推波助澜下,美利坚合众国的总统川普成功成为了媒体的摇钱树,成为了利益集团生钱的工具。能这样诋毁自己的总统,能这样牺牲国家的脸面来为黑心媒体送钱的,估计也就只有美国的左派了。 --- 其实从全球范围来看,传统媒体行业面临的就是这样一种困境:没有优质内容,只能走向出卖信誉饮鸩止渴的邪路。 CNN的制片人也说了,他们只有几百万观众,其中自由派又占了主要,因此不讨好这些人是不行的。与此相似的是,近日我国多个省级电视台放映一些乱七八糟的广告,被多部门联合叫停。再想想百度魏泽西事件,不难看出这些媒体面临的共同困境:没有自我生产优秀内容的能力,而影视产品的分发零售又受到视频网站乃至社交网站的空前挤压,他们能做的就只有向莆田系医院或者假药制造商卖春,或者突破下限做一些低成本但吸引眼球的内容。不管是哪条路,对媒体的信誉都是巨大的伤害,并最终会形成恶性循环。 美国不太熟悉。就拿我自己做例子谈谈国内的电视台吧。老实说,大概从08年开始我就几乎不怎么看电视了,就算看也只看新闻。国内那么多电视台的台标我只记得湖南卫视。我身边的年轻人之中不看电视的比例也相当惊人。甚至可以毫不夸张地说,看电视的都是些中老年人。当然,我个人的感官是没什么意义的,但是既然多个省级电视台都开始放那种假药广告了,那情况恐怕已经糟到了一定程度。连省级电视台都是这样,下面的市县级电视台就更不能看了。两三年前去农村亲戚家,瞥到电视的时候真的是惊了。那个县级电视台的广告也是卖假药的,但是连视频都没有了,就是个蓝底白字的文字广告。这电视台是有多缺钱才会放这样的广告啊! 相比之下早早开始做泛娱乐内容的湖南卫视,浙江卫视等几个电视台就要滋润得多。人家在选择广告主的时候也更有余地。这是有钱做内容的。没钱的怎么办?做一些调节家庭纠纷的节目,或者劝分手情侣和好的节目,或者全是演员的相亲节目。这样的节目也许在爱看热闹的中老年人之中还有一定市场,但是对比较崇尚个人自由的年轻人来说就比较可笑了。因此这样低俗的内容短时间内也许能提振收视率,长远来看仍然是饮鸩止渴。 那么CNN这样做的苦衷我们大概也能明白了。他们对通俄门连篇累牍的报道,实质上是拍给自由派看的一部低俗电视连续剧。只不过CNN用一家新闻媒体的信誉为其真实性背书,所以看得左派们高潮迭起,酣畅淋漓,大呼过瘾。可是眼看特朗普就要被弹劾了,突然反法西斯先锋CNN说其实我们都是编的…尴尬,真是尴尬啊! 要问为什么,也许是CNN的胡作非为令老板们觉得这样下去对品牌不利,于是悬崖勒马。也许是老板们与特朗普达成某种协议,然后弃卒保车。我觉得前者的可能性大一些,因为特朗普实在是不像是有如此手腕的人。 无论如何,这次的事情只是传统媒体(百度历史并不悠久但也适用于此)作茧自缚的一个缩影。未来恐怕还会有更多类似事情发生。 ================================================= 评论里有人说百度是搜索引擎所以不适用于本回答讨论的情况。实际上,只要你打开浏览器输入 http://m.baidu.com , 搜索栏下面的东西自然会告诉你百度是一家什么公司。也许是百度还在坚持李彦宏从美国带回来的那点理想,也许是现在PC端真的流量不大了,总之PC版页面 http://www.baidu.com 还没有出现这种情况,但这恐怕坚持不了多久了。 --------- 左派洗地工上班了。本来是想和谐的,不过后来视频上了油土鳖排行榜1位后只能洗地了。几个方向:1. 视频剪切拼接而成,有断章取义之嫌。2. 淡化这个制片人的身份,说他是别的部门的不知道cnn政治部的内部运作。3. 强调视频制作者有犯罪前科不可信。4. 最后一个也是最管用的。选择性无视,不报道不讨论这事很快就过去了。白宫发言人推荐人们去看这个视频。估计cnn现在也在琢磨如何发表声明。目前这位制片人已经把自己的推特基本删干净了。cnn会不会保他呢? 刚才看到cnn的回应,看来cnn是打算把这事归为制片人的个人意见。其他左媒基本也统一了口径都认定这个了。这个视频对大局不会有什么影响。左派自然不信这视频,右派不需要这视频也知道cnn是fake news。 而左媒是主流媒体,他们选择性无视就可以让这事很快被遗忘。 大致浏览一遍可发现,网络上主流媒体对此的报道基本都是夹在某文章当中或者放在某个不相关的版面下。电视上他们不报道或者强调上面提到的123点做个导向。 反正观众都有偏见,听见自己想听的后就会产生自己的观点,完全不需媒体做太多。什么媒体会重点报道或中立报道呢? 那些不知名的没什么人看的小媒体,绝大部分民众永远也不会看到这些报道。这就是西方媒体做舆论控制的一个典型示范例子。我个人认为这种方法比单纯的删,封,和谐要高明的多。 第二天第二个视频先来个梗 我要一个nothing burger,不要pickle,再来一小杯covfefe。cnn声明基本上只用了第二点,没有否认视频真伪。结果你这么说就正好掉进了视频制作者下的套。你不是嫌这个制片人级别不够高吗? 给你个节目主持人兼嘉宾如何? 这还是第二个视频呢,明天后天还会有。 cnn以后最好想好了再发言。左媒很明显急了已经开始胡言乱语了。最新洗地方向是说这是anti-journalism,说这是对整个记者阶层的迫害。美国记者在买买提之后成为美国最新的受压迫的少数群体。笑死我了。 --- 传统媒体,报纸,杂志,电视台 日子是越来越难过。 为啥特朗普这么喜欢用推特?记者这么做肯定是上头的命令 过去作为新闻的主要来源的电视台,广告费都给电视台,但现在互联网时代,广告费都跑 互联网公司去了. 什么是垄断?全球2/3广告费进了这五家巨头的腰包 - 华尔街见闻 没钱留不住人才,没钱就吃人嘴软拿人手短。不要脸的听金主的话,替金主办事。 那些优秀的人自己道德要求高,是不屑做这些的,可传统媒体请不起这些人了。二流的人水平差了些,这种事也拉的下脸做。全世界都这样,最悲哀的事,以后news只会越来越遭。不单是cnn这样的媒体的堕落,互联网控制新闻舆论更容易。不单是新闻,还有油管的视频,耐飞的网剧,,都在蚕食电视台。 --- 自从文字传播能力增强之后,人类社会一直面临权威消解的问题。 基督教权威的消解,恰恰是因为印刷术可以让文字在德国广泛传播,话语权被消弱之后,基督教的权威就被消解了。 自从互联网诞生之后,文化名人效应是逐渐降低,他们的权威是在不断被消解而不是增强。 自从推特和脸谱产生之后,各种小道消息混杂在一起,主流媒体的权威逐渐衰落。如果是以前,文字传播速度没有这么夸张,这种编造事件不会发酵的如此迅猛,一切都拜信息技术的迅速发展所致。 可以预见的未来,任何违背公共理性的权威都会慢慢被消解,那些以为可以通过道德或者自命不凡建立自己权威的个人或者组织都将面临消解的困境。 人类最终以公共理性为最高权威,而不是某个人的理性,或者某个组织的理性。

It’s a little hard to compliment Jay-Z’s 4:44 without tipping the back of one’s hand. One can say it’s his best work in years, but he hasn’t made a great solo album since 2003, or even a pretty good one since 2009. One can say it’s a “cultural event,” but of course it is: He’s Jay-Z (or now, rather, JAY-Z), his wife is the biggest star in music, and 4:44 is his first album since she figuratively put him out in the street on Lemonade. One can say it’s the best rap album ever made by a 47-year-old, which it almost certainly is, but that’s not exactly blurb material. I can’t even tell you that you should go out and buy it, because you can’t—it’s currently available exclusively on Tidal, the streaming service part-owned by Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

The current decade hasn’t been particularly kind to Jay. 2011 saw the release of Watch the Throne, his hugely successful album-length collaboration with Kanye West, but coming as it did off West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, it felt like the first time since “Brooklyn’s Finest” that Jay’s star was eclipsed by that of a collaborator. His next solo album, 2013’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, was a critical flop that felt musically and spiritually vapid and came bundled with an intrusive Samsung app. In 2014, he was attacked in an elevator by his sister-in-law over alleged marital infidelities, dalliances which then became a central theme of the best selling and most critically acclaimed album of last year.

4:44 offers a lot of good news for Jay-Z, so we’ll start with that. For starters, it’s far superior to Magna Carta and probably the best and most focused solo work he’s done since 2007’s American Gangster. The entire album is produced by legendary Chicago beatmaker No I.D., and the production is uniformly exquisite. The sample flips are wondrous, the too-rare pairing of a great producer and a generous clearance budget: Beats are constructed around Stevie Wonder’s “Love’s in Need of Love Today” (on “Smile”), Nina Simone’s “Four Women” and “Baltimore” (on “The Story of O.J.” and “Caught Their Eyes,” respectively), and Donny Hathaway’s “Someday We’ll All Be Free” (on the album’s closer, “Legacy”). The result is 10 tracks shot with musical warmth and understatement, a welcome departure from the kitchen-sink maximalism of much of Jay’s later work.

Lyrically, 4:44 offers plenty of grist for the internet, a wealth of gossip, innuendo, thinly-veiled barbs at competitors, and behind-the-scenes mogul-ing. But coming from one of rap’s all-time great narrative stylists, it often feels more concerned with the raw dumping of information than the art and panache with which it’s rendered. There’s an entire verse about Jay beefing with Prince’s lawyer over Tidal’s exclusive rights to the late Purple One’s catalogue, which is about as exciting as it sounds. A shot at Kanye West’s workout regimen as detailed on last year’s “30 Hours” is a tasty bit of pettiness (and Tidal cross-promotion), but it feels like empty calories when you remember this is the guy who once made “Takeover.”

This pesky half-bakedness—or perhaps half-heartedness—is most evident on “The Story of O.J.,” perhaps the album’s most conceptually ambitious track. The song starts out with the promise of an unflinching examination of race in America, deriving from O.J. Simpson’s oft-stated, and ultimately impossible, dream of being “not black, not white, just O.J.” The allusion portends a commentary on how the American prison of race entraps everyone, regardless of wealth and social status, and at first a lyrical detour from Jay into the dynamics of the New York real estate market seems like it might be an ironic aside. But by the time he’s off to bragging about the value of his art collection, plugging the price of a Tidal subscription, and tossing off idiotic stereotypes just a few moments later (“You ever wonder why Jewish people own all the property in America?”), it feels like he’s lost either the focus or the nerve to see the song’s premise through. The track’s music video is startlingly powerful, but like everything else here, you need a Tidal subscription to experience it.

4:44’s juiciest passages—the ones that have thus far prompted the most content and commentary—are Jay’s confessions of his philandering, quasi-revelations that are returned to with such frequently that their emotional weight starts to feel stepped-on. Jay’s first such admission comes by way of a comparison of himself to Eric Benét, Halle Berry’s ex, an odd confession-by-dated-analogy that offers little reflection other than acknowledging that both men have (or in Benét’s case, had) exceptionally attractive wives. Later Jay compares himself to The Godfather’s Michael Corleone—“Kay losin’ the babies because their future’s uncertain”—a strange interpretation of his wife’s miscarriage as karmic punishment for his own fidelity. (Jay repeats this same move later on the album with the line, “I apologize for all the stillborns/ ’cause I wasn’t present, your body wouldn’t accept it.”) It starts to feel like the worst pages of Drake’s playbook, in which female partners are ostensibly front and center, but mostly in relation to men feeling bad.

That said, there are plenty of genuinely moving moments here. Jay’s discussion of his mother’s sexuality on “Smile,” for instance—“Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate/ Society shame and the pain was too much to take/ Cried tears of joy when you fell in love”—a startlingly candid revelation of something that wasn’t public until the album’s release. And “4:44,” a song-length apology to his wife, contains probably the most romantic lyrics Jay has ever penned: “We’re supposed to vacay till our backs burn/ we’re supposed to laugh till our heart stops/ and then meet in a space where the dark stops/ and lets love light the way.” This is pretty beautiful writing, a moment when the self becomes sublimated to something larger. Unfortunately, the next lines sort of undo it: “Like the men before me, I cut off my nose to spite my face/ I never wanted another woman to know/ Something about me that you didn’t know.” Is this really the best time to (once again) bring up your own cheating? There’s a point when incessantly apologizing becomes just another way of talking about yourself.

The album’s second-to-last track, and to my ears its one uninterrupted moment of greatness, is “Marcy Me,” a reflection on Jay’s childhood home and origins that, fittingly, feels like something from another era. Over a sample of Portuguese rock group Quarteto 1111’s “Todo O Mundo E Ninguém,” Jay spits intricate rhymes with a wit and ferociousness we haven’t heard from him in years. Physically, he’s not quite up to it, though—he sounds winded, accidentally and remarkably human. On an album preoccupied with the appearance of vulnerability, it’s one of the few sustained moments that feels genuinely vulnerable.

Rarely does any musician makes the best music of his or her career at age 47 or even come anywhere close to it. Rock fans like to cite Dylan, the Stones, and Springsteen as exemplars of longevity, but when they were in their late 40s, they were making albums such as Down in the Groove and Steel Wheels or releasing boxed-sets of previously unreleased tracks. Taken in this context, the confidence and commitment of 4:44 is undeniably impressive, and it should return Jay to somewhere close to the center of the contemporary hip-hop conversation.

4:44 has been widely heralded as Jay-Z’s most “personal” album, and understandably so. But really, who out there has ever listened to “D’Evils” or “Song Cry” or “99 Problems” or “No Hook” or “So Ghetto” or “Heart of the City” or “Hard Knock Life” and thought they weren’t personal? All great art is personal, but that doesn’t mean all personal art is great, and 4:44 too often feels like vertically-integrated brand-building, chumming for audiences overly invested in figuring out whether Courtney-from-Hooters or Becky-with-the-good-hair are real people, and doxxing them. As business models go, this is a shrewd one: seize upon a public appetite for details on the world’s most famous marriage, give it to the internet in digestible pull quotes, make some short films, and stream it all on a service that you own for $9.99 a month, preferably on the Sprint network. But its preconditions are extreme fame and wealth, and as such it allows only a small handful of megastars to prosper while the rest of the industry depends on their largesse. Can’t knock the hustle, I guess, but I can’t quite bring myself to applaud it.

          【都議選】: 築地と豊洲の市場”併存”は「選挙目当て」? 玉虫色の・・・   

【都議選】:築地と豊洲の市場”併存”は「選挙目当て」? 玉虫色の方針に3つの疑問 ■財源をどう確保するのか、採算が取れるのかが不明確なままだ。

乾龍の『漂流日本の羅針盤』・【最新ニュースから見え隠れする闇】:【都議選】:築地と豊洲の市場”併存”は「選挙目当て」? 玉虫色の方針に3つの疑問

 ■財源をどう確保するのか、採算が取れるのかが不明確なままだ。 

 地域政党「都民ファーストの会」を率いる東京都の小池百合子知事が、築地市場の移転問題で「築地は守る、豊洲を活かす」と基本方針を表明したのは、都議選の告示3日前だった。

 自民党から「決められない知事」と批判を浴び続けた小池知事は、都議選を前に舵を切った。

 ただ、豊洲に移転し、築地を再開発して市場機能を残すという基本方針は、説明が不十分だった。財源をどう確保するのか、採算が取れるのかが不明確で、「選挙目当てだ」とも指摘される。

 小池知事は何を語り、都民、そして各党からどう評価されたのか。振り返る。

 ◆30分で打ち切った臨時記者会見

                                   時事通信 

 6月20日に急遽、臨時記者会見を開いた小池知事は、わずか30分間ほどで会見を打ち切った。報道陣で質問ができた記者は3人で、質疑の時間は約5分だった。

 毎日新聞によると、都幹部が基本方針の内容を知らされたのは、約1時間前だったという。

 小池知事は「豊洲、築地を両立させることが最も賢い使い道ではないか」と述べ、淡々と基本方針を説明した。

 1.小池知事はどう説明した?

 内容はこうだ。築地市場を豊洲市場に移転し、中央卸売市場としての機能を移す。そして、5年をめどに築地を食文化や観光の拠点となる「食のテーマパーク」として再開発する。競りなどの市場機能を築地にも確保し、「築地で営業したい」と希望する業者が戻れるようにする。

 築地か豊洲のどちらかに決まる。多くの人がそう考えていたはずだ。斜め上をいく基本方針を掲げた小池知事は、「築地は宝だ」と強調した。

 「長年培ったブランド力、そして地域との調和を生かし、改めて活用することが大切な宝を生かす方法ではないでしょうか」

 築地を再開発する前には、土地を活用するとした。2020年の東京五輪・パラリンピックに間に合うよう、晴海地区に建設する選手村と競技会場を結ぶ「環状2号線」を開通させ、駐車場を整備するという。

 一方、豊洲市場についての展望も語った。

 「地下空間の追加対策など専門家会議から指摘のあったところの安全対策を講じた上で、生かすべきだ。冷凍、冷蔵、加工などの機能を一層強化して、ITを活用した総合物流拠点にする」

 両市場をどう使い分けるのかは、「基本的な方針をもとに、早急に具体的な方策を詰めていくよう事務方に指示した」と述べるにとどめた。

 2.採算や財源はどうする?

 具体的な説明がなかった話は、他にもある。豊洲への移転や再開発にかかる費用をどう賄い、築地も豊洲も残すことで採算が取れるのか、だ。

 5884億円がかかった豊洲市場の整備費のうち、現在、約3600億円の借金が残っている。小池知事は、築地に市場機能を残した場合に借金をどう返済するのかなどは、都の職員に「精査させている」とした。

 そして、豊洲で年間92億円出ると試算される赤字に触れ、両市場を併存する価値を次のように述べた。

 「単に移るということになると赤字が継続する。それを打破するためにも築地の再整備と豊洲をうまく活用していくことで、ダブルのプラスに持っていきたい」

 都の市場問題プロジェクトチームは、豊洲を開場した場合、今後6000 億円を超える維持管理費などがかかると試算しており、税金の投入も必要としてきた。

 莫大な費用を賄うために、築地の跡地の売却も検討されてきたが、小池知事はそれを選ばなかった理由をこう説明した。

 「築地を売却すれば、一時的にどっとお金が入ってくる。だが、ハコモノを作って終わりを作って終わりで『あとは知らない』と将来世代へのつけを残していいものだろうか」

 都民は、会見をどう思ったのか。朝日新聞が6月24、25両日に実施した世論調査によると、小池知事の基本方針に賛成52%、反対30%だった。 一方、計画の詳細を明らかにしなかった姿勢については「評価しない」が58%で、「評価する(26%)」を上回ったという。

 3.「選挙目当て」ではないの?

                                      時事通信 

 2016年8月に移転延期を表明から約10カ月が経ち、移転問題は大きく動いたが、財源や採算について具体的に示さないままに、選挙戦に突入。各党が、都議選で移転問題について舌戦を繰り広げた。

 移転問題に関する各党の姿勢ははっきりしている。自民・公明は移転に賛成、民進は条件付きで賛成、共産党は反対している。都民ファーストは、小池知事の方針に賛成する。

 小池知事は、6月23日の都議選告示日に渋谷区で街頭演説すると、次のように述べ、「豊洲ありき」で都議会を主導してきた自民党が問題視されるべきだとした。

 「豊洲市場は6000億円の予算が執行されたのに、土壌対策はいまだ不十分。議会がチェックしてこなかったせいです」

 対する自民党は「決めるのが遅すぎた」などと応戦。他の党からも小池知事に対する意見が出た。

 菅義偉官房長官は6月25日、町田市内で「何回、会見を見ても分からなかった。一番ダメだと思ったことは、記者との質疑応答を5分で打ち切ったことだ」と会見時間に言及、築地を再開発するのには「税金が数千億円も必要になる」とした。

 また、民進党の蓮舫代表は「小池さんは語っていないことがある。『築地も豊洲も』というが、いくらかかるのか。2つの市場の役割分担は何か」、共産党の志位和夫委員長は「小池氏は『築地ブランドを守る』と言ったが、2回も引っ越すなんて到底できない。豊洲移転と築地ブランドは両立しない」と主張した。

 社民党の吉田忠智党首は、基本方針は選挙目当てだと聴衆に語りかけた

 「小池知事は市場を豊洲に移し、築地も活用するという訳の分からない方針を示した。慌てて選挙を優先したからだ。これでは都民ファーストではなく選挙ファーストだ」

 ◆都議選の結果を受け、どう進むのか

 先述の世論調査で、都議選で投票先を選ぶ際、移転問題を重視するかは「重視する」が30%、「重視しない」が63%との結果が出ている。都民の関心が薄まっていることが読み取れる。

 築地と豊洲を併存する指針は、あくまで基本方針だとしており、選挙後に方向修正される可能性もある。

 移転時期について、小池知事は基本方針を表明した会見で「市場関係者の方々と話を詰めなければいけない」としていたが、2018年5月を目指すとの考えを基本方針を表明した翌日の6月21日に明らかにしている。

 都議選の結果を受け、移転問題はどう進むのか。「やっぱり選挙目当てだったのでは」と都民にみなされるのか。小池知事の舵取りに注目が集まる。

【都議選】:逆風の自民党、「最初で最後の街頭演説」で安倍首相が語ったこと、語らなかったこと ■拍手と野次が入り混じった14分間。 

乾龍の『漂流日本の羅針盤』・【最新ニュースから見え隠れする闇】:【都議選】:逆風の自民党、「最初で最後の街頭演説」で安倍首相が語ったこと、語らなかったこと

 ■拍手と野次が入り混じった14分間。 

 東京都議会議員選挙の投開票日を翌日に控えた7月1日。

 加計学園問題や閣僚の失言などで自民党が逆風にさらされるなか、党総裁の安倍晋三首相が、今回の選挙では最初で最後となる街頭演説に立った。

                            Jun Tsuboike / BuzzFeed

 6月23日の告示以降、屋内の集会にしか出席していなかった安倍首相が街頭演説の舞台に選んだのは、「都議会のドン」こと内田茂都議の地盤がある千代田区・秋葉原。

 2012年12月に当時の民主党から政権を奪還した衆議院議員選挙の投開票日前日にも同じ場所で演説集会を開いた、自民党の「ホーム」だ。 

 時事通信の情勢調査では、都民ファーストの会や公明党を含めた小池百合子知事の支持勢力が過半数の議席を確保する勢いと報じられている。

 自民党にとっては「逆風」となる事案が相次いで重なった。

 加計学園の獣医学部新設をめぐる一連の問題、秘書へのパワハラや暴行が報じられた豊田真由子衆議院議員の不祥事。さらには、麻生太郎財務相の「あれ女性ですよ発言」や、稲田朋美防衛相の失言ーー。

 演説会場には、森友学園への献金問題で渦中の籠池泰典理事長も姿を見せた。 

                            Jun Tsuboike / BuzzFeed

 そのような状況で安倍首相は何を語るのか。約14分間の演説で、首相が一連の問題に触れたとみられるのは冒頭のこの言葉のみだった。

 「連日の報道によって、『自民党何やってるんだ、しっかりしろ』と厳しいお言葉を頂いています。私も政治与党を率いる総裁として、ご心配をおかけしていることを申し訳なく思っています」

 「ですが、みなさん、私たちは負けるわけにはいかないんです」 

                                    時事通信

 今回の選挙で焦点とされている豊洲市場の移転問題、受動喫煙をめぐる議論、2020年の東京五輪に向けた政策などに触れる場面もなく、4年半にわたる安倍政権のアベノミクスや安全保障政策の成功を列挙。

 そして、民主党が担った前政権への批判を続けた。

 「鳩山政権、菅政権の間に日米同盟の信頼が崩れてしまった。外交安全保障を立て直すために私たちは国家安全保障戦略を作り、安保法制を成立させました。これによって日米の絆は強くなった。助け合えることができる同盟は間違いなく絆を強くしたんです」

 「民主党政権下を思い出していただきたいと思います。どんなに頑張って、どんなに汗を流してもなかなか仕事を守れない。学生さんたちはなかなか仕事を得ることができない。『連鎖倒産』という言葉が日本中を覆っていたわけです」

演説会場では政権に反対する人々の姿も。

 小池都知事については、「たしかに都政に風を吹き込んだ。東京オリンピックに向けて私たちはしっかりと協力していきたいと思っています」と述べた一方、こう続けた。

 「この都議会選挙は新しい議会か、古い議会かを決める選挙だ。そんなことが言われていますが、いま新しい政党でマイクを握っている人、よく見てみれば数年前は民主党だったという人もたくさんいるじゃありませんか」

 「でもみなさん、看板を書き換えれば変わるでしょうか。いえ、中身は変わらないんです。そんな人は信頼するわけにはいかない」

 「たとえ厳しい逆風の中にあっても、愚直に政策を訴える。自民党から立候補して政策を訴える。古いか新しいかではありません。仕事ができるかできないかを問わなくてはなりません」

 拍手と野次が入り混じりながらの14分間。安倍首相はおきまりの言葉で演説を締めくくった。

 「世界に輝く東京を、世界の真ん中で輝く日本を。どうぞよろしくお願い申し上げます」

 乾龍の『漂流日本の羅針盤』・【最新ニュースから見え隠れする闇】:【都議選】:安倍首相の街頭演説で「安倍やめろコール」 石原経済再生相は「民主主義を否定」と非難 

 ■告示後、最初で最後の街頭演説だった。 

 安倍晋三首相は東京都議選の選挙戦最終日となる7月1日、JR秋葉原駅前で街頭演説をした。6月23日の告示後、街頭に立つのは今回が初めて。

 駅周辺は大勢の人で埋め尽くされた。そのなかには、安倍首相の登場前から「安倍やめろ」とコールを繰り返す人々もいた。

 ◆石原伸晃経済再生相がマイクを握ると、ブーイングが起きた。

                         Jun Tsuboike / BuzzFeed

 「せっかく安倍総理総裁の話を聞きにお集まりいただいているのに、一部の人たちがこのように演説自体を邪魔する。こういうことを惹起させてしまったのは、権力、政権をお預かりしている私どもの仲間の中に、都民のみなさま方の声に(耳を)傾けなかった、また、あぐらをかいていた、こういう人間がいたから、そこに乗じて」

 石原氏は、コールに対してそう言及した。 

                            Jun Tsuboike / BuzzFeed

 ここで安倍総理が登場する。石原氏は続ける。

 「このあと安倍晋三総理総裁からお話があると思いますけれど、政権をお預かりする身として、一部の人間が不用意な発言、不用意な行動をしたことによって、お話を聞きに来てくださった方に対して、あのようなかたちで邪魔をする人たちが来てしまったことは本当に申し訳ないと思っています」

 また、こうも非難した。

 「(これは)ある意味で民主主義を否定します。自分たちの主義主張があるならば、自分たちの応援するところに行って主義主張をするのが民主主義の基本でありますけれども、残念ながら反対をすることだけしかできない人たちが、さまざまな会場で選挙の妨害を繰り広げたということは、民主主義を守っていく私たちとしては、情けなくも申し訳なくも思っている」

 演説終盤でもこう言及した。

 「このように邪魔をする人たちが自由民主党の演説会に入って参ります。これは私は悲しいことだと思います」

          Delator afirma que propina dada a ministro do TCU era entregue no Rei das Coxinhas   
O empresário João Carlos Lyra, delator em uma operação conexa à Lava Jato no Nordeste, disse em depoimento que deu R$ 2 milhões de propina para o então senador Vital do Rêgo, atual ministro do Tribunal de Contas da União. Os pagamentos foram feitos em 2014, quando Rego foi candidato ao governo da Paraíba, derrotado por Ricardo Coutinho (PSB), segundo o site BuzzFeed BR.
Segundo o delator, o pagamento em dinheiro foi recebido por Alex Azevedo, secretário da Prefeitura de Campina Grande durante o mandato do irmão de Vital. Lyra serviu de caixa paralelo da OAS para viabilizar o caixa dois a Vital do Rêgo. Ele afirma que emitia notas fiscais com valores superfaturados para a empreiteira e, assim, fazia os saques em dinheiro. O dinheiro foi enrtegue por Carolina Vasconcellos, uma parceira de Lyra.   
O pitoresco da história é o local onde os pagamentos foram feitos. Um restaurante da rede Rei das Coxinhas, na BR-101. Como a OAS tinha pressa no pagamento da propina, foi escolhido um local a meio caminho entre Goiana (PE) e João Pessoa (PB). "Percebi claramente que Roberto Cunha [OAS} estava muito angustiado, tendo dito que precisava conseguir R$ 2 milhões a serem repassados ao então senador Vital do Rêgo, que na época era relator da CPI da Petrobras. Que o pagamento destinava-se a obter favorecimentos ou facilidades para a OAS na CPI", disse João Lyra, em depoimento prestado no Recife no início de 2017.
"Foi solicitado por João que se dirigisse a João Pessoa com urgência para entregar uma encomenda a uma pessoa de nome Alex Azevedo. Com a insistência de João Lyra, a colaboradora concordou em fazer a entrega da tal encomenda, desde que não precisasse se deslocar até João Pessoa, mas até o meio do caminho. Assim encontrou com a pessoa de Alex Azevedo em Goiana (PE) na lanchonete Rei das das Coxinhas, local em que entregou a encomenda em mãos da pessoa identificada como Alex Azevedo", disse a delatora.
Em nota, Vital do Rêgo disse que "desconhece os fatos narrados pelo delator e repudia as falsas acusações". "Ele está à disposição das autoridades para prestar mais esclarecimentos", diz o ministro. (Com o 247)

          Deepica Mutyala   

One tube of bright red lipstick changed everything for Deepica Mutyala. After a video on her YouTube channel on how to mask under eye circles with the beauty product went viral, garnering more than 9 million views and grabbing the attention of The TODAY Show and The Dr. Oz Show, Deepica left her post as Senior Manager of Brand & Product Development at Birchbox and committed to vlogging fulltime. Even as a little girl growing up in Texas, Deepica was intrigued by beauty and obsessed with New York City. And now as an on-air beauty expert and YouTube personality living in her dream city, she spreads the universal language of beauty by making it approachable for everyone through her expert tips, tricks and tutorials. Deepica, who you can catch on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, talked to us about launching her “beauty decoded” channel a little more than a year ago as well as her expertise and fascination with New York City’s rooftops, Snapchat and Dry Texturizing Spray.

Deepica has recently been featured on Today.com with her Five Minute Waves Tutorial using only Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray,

You are known for sharing tips, tricks and tutorials—what is your all-time favorite?
People probably assume that the “red lipstick video” that went viral would be my favorite—I do love it and am so grateful for what it has done for my career—but my favorite (and the one that I’m most proud of) is actually a video that shares a message rather than a tutorial. I did a video called #BeYourOwnPrincess where I transformed into three iconic Disney Princesses and ended by transforming into a Disney Prince to show that you can be whoever you want to be no matter what you look like on the outside. It’s a message inspired by my childhood. I felt like I owed it to my 16-year-old self and other kids growing up today to share it. Beauty tutorials are the core of my YouTube channel, but I hope to use my platform to share messages I believe in as my channel grows.

How does New York City inspire you?
New York City inspires me every day. As a girl who grew up in Texas, I dreamt of living here and working in the beauty industry. It’s so surreal to live in the West Village right by Carrie Bradshaw’s Sex and the City apartment. Sure I live in a 400-square-foot studio, but it doesn’t bother me. Who wants to stay inside when you can frolic and get inspired by everything this city has to offer? Everything from a stroll through Washington Square Park to local coffee shops to attending red carpet events inspires me and keeps me motivated.

Every time I fly back into Manhattan and see the skyline, I get butterflies as if it’s the first time I’m seeing it. I get such a rush of anxiety. This city makes you hungry to realize your wildest dreams (and hungry for the amazing Italian hole-in-the-wall in Nolita). I don’t think there is another city in the world that has as many ambitious and dynamic people as New York. I meet someone every day that inspires me to work harder and dream bigger. I can’t really explain it in any other way but to say that I am meant to be here.

It seems like visiting New York City rooftops is a preferred activity—Which one is your favorite?
If Instagram capped the number New York City rooftop photos allowed, I would have hit that cap during my first week living here. Whenever someone asks me what I want to do or where I want to meet up, the answer will always be a rooftop—I’m obsessed. There is no greater feeling than the one you feel floating in the middle of Manhattan. My current favorite is Mr. Purple in the Lower East Side. It recently opened, and I have a feeling it will be one of my go-to spots this summer.

How has launching your own YouTube channel changed your career?
How hasn’t it changed my career? I still can’t believe it’s only been about a year since I launched a video filmed on my iPhone that changed my life forever. I remember sitting in a work meeting and receiving a Gchat from a co-worker that said, “your video is on BuzzFeed, and you’re going to go viral.” Before I knew it, the video hit 100k views, then 1 million views, and now close to 10 million people have seen it. Every global publication I could ever dream of would be featuring the video. It was a whirlwind to say the least. The day I got an email from The TODAY Show asking me to come on to do a segment showcasing my “red lipstick trick” was the day I put in my two-weeks notice. I felt like it was the sign I needed and that I was meant to do this fulltime. A few months later, I had become a regular TODAY contributor, appeared on The Dr. Oz Show and helped premiere Amazon’s new live show StyleCode.

Any advice for someone who wants to launch a similar career?
Just start. I worried for so long about not having the proper equipment, knowledge, team or time to launch a YouTube channel, but after I did, it turned out that a video I filmed the wrong way on my iPhone and made after I rolled out of bed on a Saturday kicked off my new career. At the end of the day, authenticity is what will make you shine on YouTube—it’s you being you, not all the other stuff. Get that voice out of your head saying you don’t have time. You always have time to make your dreams come true.

I would also say to work hard…and then work harder. I’ve never worked as hard as I am right now. You have to make it happen for yourself and sacrifice some things—I don’t even know what a weekend is anymore. Everyday is a workday, but it’s worth it.

What does “beauty decoded” mean to you?
I launched my channel under the premise of beauty decoded because I want to simplify beauty for the everyday girl. I found that there’s plenty of YouTube channels out there that do aspirational beauty looks, but I wanted to take everything I learned while working with some of the greatest artists in the world and break it down into something achievable for the girl in Texas who wants to learn how to apply a liquid liner or the basics of contouring without the intimidation factor. I truly believe that makeup should be fun and make you feel beautiful. When you feel beautiful, you exude confidence, and when you’re confident, you’re unstoppable.

You are blowing up on Snapchat. What is it about your content that keeps people interested?
I love the “story” aspect of Snapchat. It’s the social media outlet that allows me to really connect with my followers. I give them a look into my day-to-day life, which captures all aspects of my personality. I share everything from behind-the-scenes footage on a video shoot and backstage moments at The TODAY Show to my daily beauty routine and silly snapshots with my friends and family around New York City. It’s fun sharing my daily journey living in Manhattan and all the random antics that come with it with my followers from Oklahoma to Singapore. It’s like a reality show where I have control over what is shared.

I also love being able to engage with my followers in a more intimate way. For example, they can snap me videos or pictures of them trying out beauty tricks that I taught them. I also do a lot of polling via Snapchat—my followers help me pick what lipstick shade to wear in the mornings and have even chosen the outfits I’ve worn to weddings.

For someone new to the Snapchat world, which five people should he or she start following right now?
Me, obviously! Then Kylie Jenner and DJ Khaled because they are so entertaining and you have to follow them just to be in the know. Inevitably something from their snap story will be in the news the next day. Kim Kardashian just got Snapchat and she just drives around taking videos of herself. Sometimes Kanye is in the background jamming out to his own songs. She’s clearly not taking it too seriously, and it’s hilarious to watch. I think that’s what everyone loves about Snapchat—it’s raw and unfiltered. Shay Mitchell is hilarious too. She gets it and makes you feel like you’re there with her. It also makes her feel more like your friend than the celebrity you see on television. I love being able to connect with people like that.

What is your favorite Oribe product and how do you use it?
The Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is in my top five favorite products of all time. I use it every day because it’s a game-changing product. It gives my hair effortless waves and has the Oribe signature fragrance, which is so intoxicating. I always tell my followers that if there is one product worth splurging on, it’s this.

Favorite lazy-day hair tricks?
My favorite lazy-day hair tricks and my everyday hair tricks are one in the same and both involve using Dry Texturizing Spray. After having super-long, traditional Indian hair my entire life, I recently cut it off in a major way. It was the most liberating feeling! Now I wake up and run a wand through my hair (missing a piece here and there) and then go at it with Dry Texturizing Spray. If I fall asleep with my hair wet, I sometimes skip the wand because I’ll have natural waves. I just add Dry or hairspray in for some volume.

Who gives you hair envy?
Gigi Hadid gives me everything envy—brows, fashion, hair. I love when people experiment and keep things fresh. Beauty is meant to evolve and inspire.

What fashion trend are you most looking forward to this Spring/Summer?
I am really into the “out of the pool” slicked-back hair look. It’s really chic in an effortless way. I also love all the braid trends happening from high-pony braids to boxer braids.


          Jan Bonito   
Cosmetologist Jan Bonito from Ergün Tercan Salon in Denver, CO, struck Internet gold when he started posting his American Horror Story-inspired makeup transformations on his Instagram account. “I’ve loved the show very much since its first season,” said Bonito. “And this past Halloween pushed me to get out of my comfort zone, so I just went for it.” In about two hours, the time it usually takes for Bonito to create most of his looks, the recent beauty school grad can use makeup to morph into such “Freak Show” characters as Twisty the Clown, Ma Petite and Pepper. Bonito’s artistry caught the attention of major media outlets like Buzzfeed, People and Cosmopolitan, and he now boasts more than 63,000 followers on Instagram. We spoke with Bonito about his inspirations, favorite makeup trend and what you should learn before mastering your own dramatic makeup looks.

What was it like when you noticed you were making waves on the Internet with your makeup work?

I first found out that Buzzfeed shared my work from one of my co-workers. She has the Buzzfeed app on her phone and texted me right away when she saw the article. Eventually my clients noticed the attention I was getting and also other stylists’ clients.

How has the exposure been like so far?

I've gotten offers from people all over Colorado, and all over the U.S., to do their hair and makeup. It's been really amazing. I hope I can travel soon to do classes because that’s been requested on my Facebook and Instagram accounts a lot.

How would people describe your makeup aesthetic?

It depends on what type of makeup I'm doing. I feel more unique when I'm doing my transformations and crazy makeup compared to glam and regular makeup.

What turns you on creatively?

I love listening to music from my childhood and watching culturally rich foreign movies, anime and television shows—basically most of the entertainment industry, since it goes hand-in-hand with the beauty and art industry.

What movies or TV shows have the best makeup of all time?

Anything that Rick Baker puts his hands on. From The Exorcist (1973) and An American Werewolf in London (1981) to Maleficent (2014), he does very good work.

What tips would you give to those who want to create these dramatic makeup looks?

Learn the basics of art. You have to know how to shade properly and know your dark and light values. I would suggest practicing drawing portraits on paper because that's what helped me.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

"Nothing is consistent, only change." That advice helps me feel better whenever I'm feeling down or something doesn't go my way, and it also helps me keep my feet on the ground whenever something good does happen.

What’s one beauty rule you never ignore?

I never ignore the sunscreen rule because I've seen some very unpleasant results of sun damage on skin and hair.

In terms of makeup trends, what feels new, and what is tired?

For the new trends, I'm enjoying the "bare minimum" look with some pops of color here and there. I love seeing natural beauty come through instead of a mask, which brings me to what I think is tired: over-contouring and boxy, overly painted eyebrows. If people like that look, then go for it, but for myself, I love the clean, inner glow look.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

I like to binge-watch TV shows on Netflix and Hulu. A little unhealthy, but like I said, TV inspires me. I always try to figure out how the beauty team did the hair and makeup.

Do you have any favorite Oribe products?

I love the Gold Lust Repair & Restore Collection. All of my clients love how soft it makes their hair feel without weighing it down.

Who is your dream client?

Working with Jessica Lange would be a dream come true for me. I'd love to glam her up for the red carpet one day.

Do you have any exciting projects coming up?

I am starting a YouTube channel very soon, and I might be doing some demos and workshops.

          Glamorous pet owners are getting matching manicures with their cats   

Glamorous pet owners are getting matching manicures with their catsFirst thing's first: you should never, ever paint your pet's claws with actual nail polish. It's toxic to them! But should you hunger for you and your cat to have matching manicures, there's a glamorous alternative. Cristi, a cat owner from California, routinely purchases nail caps for her cat, Wednesday. One day, she found a purple, glittery set — the same purple glitter as her own manicure. SEE ALSO: Cats have been getting humans to do their bidding for 9,000 years Hell yeah. Bffs pic.twitter.com/aa7eCQbxVX — cristi cupcake  (@cristimari_) June 24, 2017 As it turns out, Cristi wasn't the only one to have this idea. After another user shared her image, it went viral, and other pet owners started sharing manicure pics, too. the only way to be pic.twitter.com/6n49uyyee3 — POI$ON IV¥ (@jadejumps) June 25, 2017 I've done this with my ruby ♥️✨ pic.twitter.com/JSTqvHSSm2 — Melanie (@reverseoceans) June 25, 2017 pic.twitter.com/SEHjPJQejV — J (@rockmanticsoul) June 24, 2017 And for those sneering right now, we'd like to point out that, from a logical standpoint, this makes perfect sense. Friends get matching manicures all the time. Pets are the best friends ever. Therefore, it would stand to reason that humans and their pets should have matching manicures. Checkmate.

Pedro Ruiz, 22, was shot and killed by his girlfriend Monalisa Perez, 19, during a YouTube stunt gone wrong.

          New marriage equality lawsuits filed in Arizona and Florida   

In Arizona, 7 couples and two surviving spouses have filed suit to challenge the state ban on marriage equality.  This case has been brought by Lambda Legal and Perkins Coie.  There are now two cases in Arizona courts challenging the ban.  In January of this year, attorney Shawn Aiken filed on behalf of 4 couples.  So far there is no indication that cases will be joined. 

The plaintiffs in the recent lawsuit include married same-sex couples, couples who want to marry in Arizona, and individuals whose same-sex spouses have passed away without Arizona ever respecting their status as a married couple. The lead plaintiffs are Nelda Majors and Karen Bailey, who are both in their 70s and, according to Freedom to Marry, have been together for more than 55 years. 

Juan and Tom

In Florida, 8 couples filed suit to have their out of state marriages recognized.  This case was brought by the ACLU.  One of the couples Juan del Hierro and Thomas Gantt, jr have a 14-month-old son and have done a lot of media work in Spanish-language media.

There are more cases pending throughout the nation as this soon to be updated map and article show.

          Coincé dans la boue, il a dû appeler les secours. Mais sur Snapchat Map, son bitmoji était ravi   

SNAPCHAT- Encore une fois, la vie à l'air largement plus belle sur les réseaux sociaux... Et en voici un cas concret. Un Britannique, appelé John, a photographié via l'application Snapchat son ami Dave dans une fâcheuse posture à Liverpool, le 27 juin dernier. Il s'est évidemment débrouillé pour que les clichés finissent sur Twitter, avec succès, rapporte Buzzfeed.

Alors qu'il voulait photographier un ferry qui passait non loin du quai, Dave est descendu sur la berge de la rivière qui traverse Liverpool pour avoir un meilleur point de vue. Une fois sa photo prise, il a remarqué qu'il était coincé dans la boue et qu'il lui était impossible d'en sortir dans aide. En attendant les secours, son ami qui l'accompagnait, John, a décidé de le prendre en photo sur Snapchat. Mais ce faisant, il a remarqué sur la nouvelle fonctionnalité "map" de l'application, que le "Bitmoji" de Dave, lui, avait l'air tout heureux, les pouces levés. Le contraste entre les deux images lui a semblé bien trop hilarant pour ne pas le partager.

Pour avoir un maximum de visibilité, il a transmis ces photos à ALBY_LAD, un internaute spécialisé dans les "meme" et les détournements sur Twitter.

"Oh mon Dieu. C'est l'expression avec les pouces levés qui m'a eu"

"C'est honnêtement le tweet le plus marrant du mois"

"Je vais aller en enfer pour avoir ri de ça"

"N'est-ce pas un épisode de Sherlock, ça"

Mais pas de panique, Dave va bien. Devant certains commentaires d'internautes inquiets, ALBY_LAD a préféré donner des nouvelles du pauvre photographe.

"Juste pour que tout le monde sache... L'homme sur la photo va bien et n'est pas mort. Arrêtez de me demander et de vous inquiéter"

          VÉRITÉ Selects Seven Favourite EPs   
VÉRITÉ
As the Brooklyn newcomer releases ‘Echo’…

Brooklyn’s VÉRITÉ has just released her debut EP, ‘Echo’, a subtle yet passionate collection of bohemian alt-pop recordings in a similar vein to Tove Lo, or perhaps Imogen Heap.

As someone who clearly knows her way around the extended player – ‘Echo’ is one of the best examples of its kind to come out in 2014 – we asked VÉRITÉ to name seven of her favourite EPs of all time. You can check out her selections right after a stream of her EP’s title track.

(Listen to the whole EP here)

- - -

Daughter – ‘The Wild Youth’ (2011)
“The most beautiful, heart-breaking songs. She [Elena Tonra] captures these moments in such a perfect way.”

Bon Iver – ‘Blood Bank’ (2009)
“I like music that stops you in your tracks and immediately makes you sit still and get a little sad. He [Justin Vernon] makes you feel like it’s winter and you’re snowed inside, even when he’s singing about how summer comes to multiply.”

SOHN – ‘Bloodflows’ (2013)
“SOHN’s production is flawless. I wasn’t familiar with him before this EP, and it was the perfect introduction. I really appreciate cohesion in art and music and I feel like everything he introduces is so on point, fluid and, ultimately, super cool.”

- - -

SOHN, ‘Bloodflows’

- - -

Sufjan Stevens – ‘All Delighted People’ (2010)
“I've been a huge Sufjan fan since [2003 album] ‘Michigan’. I appreciate the insane, slightly bipolar arrangements. It’s so grandiose and over the top, but it leaves you with this elation so it’s totally effective and brilliant.”

Phantogram – ‘Nightlife’ (2011)
“When I heard this for the first time it made me question everything I had ever written, pre VÉRITÉ. I think when you hear great music it’s supposed to motivate you to push yourself in different directions. Lyrically, it’s abstract enough to be poetic and beautiful, but specific enough to resonate. The production is so tasteful and spot on. I’m obviously a massive Phantogram fan.”

- - -

Phantogram, ‘Nightlife’

- - -

Beirut – ‘Lon Gisland’ (2007)
“I saw Beirut at Central Park SummerStage randomly, when I was 16. Immediately fell in love with the instrumentation and how massive the arrangements were.”

Banks – ‘London’ (2013)
“I really appreciate cohesion. I feel like each track melted into the next and this introduction was such a perfect package. Definitely inspiring.”

- - -

Banks, ‘Waiting Game’

- - -

As told to Jonathan Hatchman

‘Echo’ is out now. VÉRITÉ online.

          R$ 2 milhões: Propina a Vital do Rego teria sido paga no 'Rei das Coxinhas'   
O empresário João Carlos Lyra, delator em uma operação conexa à Lava Jato no Nordeste, disse em depoimento que deu R$ 2 milhões de propina para o então senador Vital do Rêgo, atual ministro do Tribunal de Contas da União. Os pagamentos foram feitos em 2014, quando Rego foi candidato ao governo da Paraíba, derrotado por Ricardo Coutinho (PSB), segundo o site BuzzFeed BR.  Segundo o delator, o pagamento em dinheiro foi recebido por Alex Azevedo, secretário da Prefeitura de Campina Grande durante o

          Трамп и перо    

Самая короткая заметка вышла на этой неделе в The New York Post. «Stop. Just stop (Остановись. Просто остановись, — перевод ред.)», — говорится в ней. Материал, опубликованный в издании, посвящен президенту США Дональду Трампу, который начал очередной виток войны с американскими СМИ с оскорбительного твита в адрес работников телеканала MSNBC.

«Слышал, что в программе с жалкими рейтингами Morning Joe плохо обо мне говорят (хотя я ее уже давно не смотрел). Тогда почему ее ведущие — сумасшедшая Мика с низким IQ и псих Джо — приехали ко мне на курорт Мар-а-Лаго на три дня накануне Нового года и умоляли о встрече со мной? У нее была кровь на лице после "пластики". Но я отказал им», — написал в своем аккаунте в твиттере Трамп. 

Интересно, что критике подверглись сотрудники «Морнинг Джо» и на страницах газеты «Нэшнл энкуайрер», которую называют близкой к республиканцам. В частности, издание написало, что Джо Скарборо и Мика Брзезински тайно обручились, а когда информация просочилась, якобы оказывали давление на республиканцев-конгрессменов, чтобы материал не был опубликован. Впрочем, даже представители Республиканской партии оказались недовольны заявлениями Трампа, а трое женщин-сенаторов от партии, которую представляет президент, уже высказались с критикой по поводу сексистских высказываний миллиардера. Причем, как напоминает Russia Today, голоса трех республиканок пригодились бы Трампу для того, чтобы продвинуть проект закона о здравоохранении, который Белый дом продвигает вместо Obamacare. 

На стороне Трампа, кроме некоторых газетчиков, его супруга Мелания и пресс-секретарь президента США Сара Хакаби-Сандерс. «Президент просто отвечает на оскорбления, он не позволит либеральной прессе себя позорить», — приводит слова представительницы Белого дома ТАСС

Кроме «Морнинг Джо» президент США также имеет испорченные отношения с CNN, недавно он прокомментировал увольнения журналистов с телеканала. Напомним, им был дан расчет за публикацию непроверенных материалов, в которых они ссылались на собственные источники, утверждавшие, что кампанию Трампа поддерживал Кремль. Заявления об уходе пришлось написать журналисту Томасу Фрэнку и двум редакторам Эрику Лихтблау и Сексу Харрису. Оба, кстати, являются лауреатами Пулитцеровской премии. «Я невероятно счастлив, что телеканал избавляется от мусорной журналистики и фейковых новостей. Очень вовремя!» — написал в Twitter хозяин овального кабинета. 

Некоторые журналисты отмечают, что поведение Трампа в отношении СМИ — это традиция для миллиардера, который демонстрировал нечто похожее еще 30-40 лет назад, когда в начале 1980-х начинающий, но амбициозный предприниматель привлекал внимание прессы. «Трамп обожает быть в центре внимания СМИ, поэтому его выпады против ее представителей, скорее всего, не проявление авторитаризма, а эффектный трюк, позволяющий ему оставаться "темой номер один" для газет и телевидения», — ранее писала The New York Times. С другой стороны, в интервью «Газете.Ru» ведущий корреспондент одного из топовых американских изданий признался, что с приходом в Белый дом тактика Трампа в отношении СМИ поменялась. «Корреспонденты, ранее работавшие в Москве, переписывались друг с другом во время пресс-конференции Трампа: "Господи, Трамп ведет себя как Путин". Особенно когда он начал спорить с Buzzfeed и назвал их "фейковыми новостями"», — рассказывал журналист изданию. 

Впрочем, некоторые эксперты считают, что Трамп, делая выпады в адрес СМИ, действительно просто защищается. «Если вы сегодня обратитесь к New York Times, Washington Post, посмотрите передачи CNN, вы увидите, что там нередко проходят материалы, которые можно назвать так: как нам избавиться от Дональда Трампа. Они действительно направлены на подрыв авторитета президента», — сказал «Санкт-Петербургским ведомостям» главный научный сотрудник Института США и Канады Владимир Васильев.

          【都議選】安倍晋三首相「いま新しい政党でマイクを握っている人、よく見てみれば数年前は民主党だったという人もたくさんいる」★3 (thread.length)   
https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20170701-00010006-bfj-soci

東京都議会議員選挙の投開票日を翌日に控えた7月1日。加計学園問題や閣僚の失言などで自民党が逆風にさらされるなか、党総裁の安倍晋三首相が、今回の選挙では最初で最後となる街頭演説に立った。拍手と野次が入り混じった14分間で首相が語ったこととは。【BuzzFeed Japan / 伊吹早織】
.

「逆風」となった問題には言及せず

6月23日の告示以降、屋内の集会にしか出席していなかった安倍首相が街頭演説の舞台に選んだのは、「都議会のドン」こと内田茂都議の地盤がある千代田区・秋葉原。2012年12月に当時の民主党から政権を奪還した衆議院議員選挙の投開票日前日にも同じ場所で演説集会を開いた、自民党の「ホーム」だ。

時事通信の情勢調査では、都民ファーストの会や公明党を含めた小池百合子知事の支持勢力が過半数の議席を確保する勢いと報じられている今回の都議選。

自民党にとっては「逆風」となる事案が相次いで重なった。加計学園の獣医学部新設をめぐる一連の問題、秘書へのパワハラや暴行が報じられた豊田真由子衆議院議員の不祥事。さらには、麻生太郎財務相の「あれ女性ですよ発言」や、稲田朋美防衛相の失言ーー。演説会場には、森友学園への献金問題で渦中の籠池泰典理事長も姿を見せた。

そのような状況で安倍首相は何を語るのか。約14分間の演説で、首相が一連の問題に触れたとみられるのは冒頭のこの言葉のみだった。

「連日の報道によって、『自民党何やってるんだ、しっかりしろ』と厳しいお言葉を頂いています。私も政治与党を率いる総裁として、ご心配をおかけしていることを申し訳なく思っています。ですが、みなさん、私たちは負けるわけにはいかないんです」
.

都政の焦点にも触れず、前政権を批判

今回の選挙で焦点とされている豊洲市場の移転問題、受動喫煙をめぐる議論、2020年の東京五輪に向けた政策などに触れる場面もなく、4年半にわたる安倍政権のアベノミクスや安全保障政策の成功を列挙。そして、民主党が担った前政権への批判を続けた。

「鳩山政権、菅政権の間に日米同盟の信頼が崩れてしまった。外交安全保障を立て直すために私たちは国家安全保障戦略を作り、安保法制を成立させました。これによって日米の絆は強くなった。助け合えることができる同盟は間違いなく絆を強くしたんです」

「民主党政権下を思い出していただきたいと思います。どんなに頑張って、どんなに汗を流してもなかなか仕事を守れない。学生さんたちはなかなか仕事を得ることができない。『連鎖倒産』という言葉が日本中を覆っていたわけです」


「看板を書き換えれば変わるでしょうか」

小池都知事については、「たしかに都政に風を吹き込んだ。東京オリンピックに向けて私たちはしっかりと協力していきたいと思っています」と述べた一方、こう続けた。

「この都議会選挙は新しい議会か、古い議会かを決める選挙だ。そんなことが言われていますが、いま新しい政党でマイクを握っている人、よく見てみれば数年前は民主党だったという人もたくさんいるじゃありませんか。でもみなさん、看板を書き換えれば変わるでしょうか。いえ、中身は変わらないんです。そんな人は信頼するわけにはいかない」

「たとえ厳しい逆風の中にあっても、愚直に政策を訴える。自民党から立候補して政策を訴える。古いか新しいかではありません。仕事ができるか。できないかを問わなくてはなりません」

拍手と野次が入り混じりながらの14分間。安倍首相はおきまりの言葉で演説を締めくくった。「世界に輝く東京を、世界の真ん中で輝く日本を。どうぞよろしくお願い申し上げます」

          【社会】バニラ・エアに声をあげた障害者に「クレーマー」、広がるバッシングに疑問の声★26 (thread.length)   
格安航空会社(LCC)のバニラ・エアが、車いすの乗客に自力でタラップを上がらせる対応をとり、謝罪した問題。インターネット上では、バニラ・エアの対応を批判した車いすの男性を「クレーマー」などと非難する声もある。
男性のやり方に問題があったのか? 車いす利用者からは「誰かが声をあげないと変わらなかった問題」との声があがる。【BuzzFeed Japan / 石戸諭】
.
バニラ・エアの対応を批判したのは、下半身不随で車いすで生活するバリアフリー研究所代表の木島英登さん。木島さんのサイトや報道によると、このような経緯があった。
木島さんは6月5日、奄美大島から関西空港へ向かう、バニラ・エアの飛行機に乗ろうとしたところ、空港職員に止められた。

奄美空港では、飛行機に搭乗するためには、滑走路から階段を使わなければならない。車いすの木島さんは、5人いた同行者に協力を仰いで、車いすごと担いでもらって搭乗しようとした。そこを空港職員に制止された。
そこで、木島さんは車いすを降りて、腕の力を使ってタラップを一段、一段登って搭乗することになった。

《今後のために、奄美空港の責任者に確認しました。「歩けない人単独は完全NG」。「車いすを担ぐのはNG」。「同行者のお手伝いのもと、階段昇降をできるならOK」とのこと》(木村さんのホームページより) 
木島さんはこの対応を批判し「できる範囲で配慮をする。搭乗を断るのだけは止めて欲しいです」と訴えた。バニラ・エアは対応に問題があったと認めて謝罪。以後は階段昇降機の導入などを決めた。
.
■木島さんへの批判

木島さんが「クレーマー」と言われるのは、車いすでの搭乗をバニラ・エアに連絡していなかったからだ。バニラ・エア側は、車いすの利用客に事前に連絡するよう求めていた。
この「ルール」を守らなかったのは木島さんなのに、なぜ航空会社が一方的に非難されるのか、というのが批判する側の言い分だ。

それでは、事前連絡していれば、どうなっていたのか?
毎日新聞によるとバニラ・エアは「関空-奄美線では、自力で歩けない車椅子のお客さまから事前に連絡があった際には搭乗をお断りしていた」と答えている。

つまり、木島さんはたとえ事前連絡をしていたとしても、そもそも飛行機に乗れなかったのだ。
先天性の身体障害があり、義足と車いすで生活する女性が、匿名を条件に、BuzzFeed Newsの取材に答えた。

この女性も、別の車いす利用者から「バニラ・エアで搭乗を断られた」と、聞いたことがあるという。

「マナーとして、事前に連絡が必要だというのもわかります。
しかし、今回のケースで本当に問題なのは事前の連絡をして交渉したところで、搭乗できない可能性が高かったことです。拒否される可能性が高いとわかっていて、事前連絡する人はいませんよね」

女性は、木島さんが今回のような形で声を上げたのは「それ以外になかったからだ」と考える。そうしなければ、車いす利用者がバニラ・エアに乗れるようにはならない、というのが女性の考えだ。

「これは誰かが声をあげないと変わらないケースです。今回も実際に、木島さんが声をあげたことで、やっとやっとバニラ・エア側も対応をした。そして、アシストストレッチャーを導入しました」
バニラ・エアは奄美空港でアシストストレッチャー(座った状態で運ぶ担架)を14日から使用、階段昇降機も29日から導入する。(朝日新聞)
やる気になれば、対策を取ることができた。
「私は今回の木島さんの行動は勇気あるものだったと思います。なんで声をあげた当事者に批判が集まるのかまったくわかりません」

■他の航空会社をつかえばいい?

インターネット上には、格安LCCのバニラ・エア以外の航空会社を使って、奄美に行けばいいではないかという声も上がっていた。
女性はこう反論する。
「他の航空会社があるからそれを使えという声もありますね。しかし、なんで車いすを使っているというだけの理由で、LCCを使うという当たり前の選択肢が排除されないといけないのでしょうか?」
社会には、車いすに限らず、障害者に対してまだ合理性に欠ける対応があること。それが現実であり、本当の問題だという。

          特朗普和CNN恩怨再升级   

美国总统特朗普这几天喜事不断。继共和党人在国会补选中拿下五连胜之后,美国有线电视新闻网(CNN)本周以来连续被爆“假新闻”更助长了特朗普及其支持者的士气。

CNN三大记者因“假新闻”辞职

上周四,“专怼特朗普”的CNN登出一条新闻,称特朗普总统的重要助手及顾问斯卡拉姆奇与俄罗斯“直接投资基金”的首席执行官德米特里耶夫关系密切,两人甚至在私下见面中讨论解除美对俄制裁问题。斯卡拉姆奇是一位美国企业家,与特朗普关系很好,今年一月还被任命为白宫公共联络与政府间事务办公室主任。“直接投资基金”则是俄罗斯政府于2011年设立的吸引外资的项目,据说资本高达100亿美元,其目标是“成为俄罗斯经济中外国直接投资的领导者和催化剂”,不过该基金会已被列入美国对俄制裁名单。

CNN报道称,他们从“匿名来源”渠道获悉两人的关系已经引发国会参议院情报委员会的调查,后者还怀疑特朗普就职四天前,该俄罗斯基金会的领导人与斯卡拉姆奇及特朗普团队其他成员秘密会面。报道还称参议院情报委员会的相关调查还指向特朗普总统的女婿库什纳。

不过这篇“通俄门”重磅炸弹在登出不到36小时后即被CNN自行删除,随后登出的“编辑说明”称这篇文章“不符合CNN的新闻采编要求,所以被撤回”,并向斯卡拉姆奇致歉。据称美国主流媒体在重大爆料问题上要求必须有两个以上来源同时证实,而这篇报道只有一个匿名渠道。斯卡拉姆奇痛批CNN撒谎,蓄意攻击特朗普及其身边人。但在CNN撤下报道并道歉后表示接受道歉。

更引人注目的是,采写这篇报道的记者、编辑及两人所属的CNN调查新闻部的主任稍后都宣布辞职,此举无疑承认这篇报道是“虚假新闻”。特朗普随后在社交媒体上怒怼CNN,称后者“不得不撤回了一篇关于俄国的大新闻,还有三名员工被迫辞职。那他们编出来的其他故事要不要也撤掉?全是假新闻!”

制片人吐槽“通俄门”报道被偷拍

屋漏偏遇连夜雨。本周,一则CNN资深制片人坦诚“通俄门”报道大多没有真凭实据,只为迎合反特朗普观众的偷拍视频再次传遍互联网。被爆出的视频出自一家名叫“正义项目”的政治团体,该团体由保守派活动家詹姆斯·奥基夫经营。被偷拍的是在CNN供职长达15年的资深制片人约翰·博尼菲尔德。据他回忆,他在一个媒体培训班上认识了偷拍者,后者当时以一位新入行记者身份与其交往,两人共见面五次,相信这些视频是当时分别偷拍的。

博尼菲尔德在视频中以“过来人”的身份称,俄罗斯介入美国大选并没有什么奇怪的,因为美国也干扰俄罗斯及其他国家的选举,努力控制别国政府。CNN之所以不断报道“通俄门”是因为收视率非常好,因为该电视网作为自由派媒体,深受民主党支持者的喜爱。博尼菲尔德声称CNN作为有线电视台不像NBC等无线大台那样“有2000万观众”,“我们只有100万观众”,所以收视率高于一切,因此很多“通俄门”报道并没有确凿证据也必须播出。统计显示,由于全天候报道特朗普及总统大选,CNN在2016年的利润为10亿美元,创下建台36年来的新高,2017年看来不会低于这一数字。

这段视频立即成为美国社交网站的热门话题,引发数百万人观看和评论。特朗普的儿子小特朗普显然也看到这段视频了,他在推特上开心地写道:“那些还没看过这段视频的人,我强烈建议你们看看。用这段视频结束所有的废话和胡扯,让我老爹重新用100%的精力放到工作上吧。”在同一天,白宫新闻秘书萨拉·桑德斯也公开建议所有人去看这段视频。特朗普更指NBC、CBS、ABC电视台和《纽约时报》《华盛顿邮报》等“假新闻”媒体存在同样问题。

虽然捅了大娄子,但CNN还是就此事发表声明称支持博尼菲尔德:“个人意见的多样性是CNN强大的原因,我们欢迎并拥抱它”。该电视网没有调查并处理后者的计划,原因是其言论是在非工作场合的私人意见。不过美国新媒体BUZZFEED报道称,CNN已经紧急出台内部规定,所有涉俄罗斯的报道必须经过最高层的审核,以提高新闻可信度。

特朗普对媒体既爱又恨

自由派媒体很快将矛头指向“正义项目”的作法,称其偷窥隐私并且选择性拼接视频,违反传统广播新闻操守,信用存疑。《今日美国报》称,“正义项目”负责人奥基夫及三位同事曾于2010年由于假冒电话维修工闯入并偷拍民主党参议员玛丽·兰德里欧位于新奥尔良的办公室而被告上法庭,最终以认罪收场。

该报还声称博尼菲尔德在偷拍视频中的言论不可信,因为后者称CNN的首席执行官曾下令尽早结束有关美国退出气候变化的新闻报道,回到热门话题“通俄门”,但实际上CNN并没有首席执行官的职务,目前最高职务是杰夫·扎克尔担任的主席一职。不过这一说辞有些牵强。

南加利福尼亚大学新闻学教授加布里尔·卡恩称,偷拍是令人讨厌的,如果“正义项目”想要打击CNN,首先必须自己行得正。卡恩还指出,当美国的最高长官(指特朗普)指责所有不利于他的报道为“偏见”和“假新闻”时,美国新闻媒体的党派色彩只会越来越浓。

特朗普对新闻媒体的态度是“既爱又恨”。他在俄罗斯外长拉夫罗夫访问白宫时把美国媒体挡在门外,还拒绝出席年度白宫记者晚宴。但另一方面,特朗普就职后亲自在白宫宴请主流媒体负责人,还前往《纽约时报》参观,以拉拢新闻界。特朗普对美国主流媒体的正面报道也颇感得意并引以为傲。这两天,美国媒体还爆出特朗普在佛罗里达海湖庄园内悬挂的一幅特朗普作为《时代周刊》封面人物的照片是假的。然而,这两天来,连续出糗的CNN继续集中火力报道“通俄门”,其他自由派媒体也视这起丑闻为无物。看来特朗普要改变美国媒体的党派化,难于上青天。(记者 张松)

Assalamualaikum
6 Syawal, masih mereput kat opis. Sebab mereput meh nak buat entry JJCM sikit. Aku memang tak rajin nak buat entry pasal cafe/restaurant unless tempat tu memang aku betul-betul suka.

Bermula dengan Cik Dj ada hal dekat KL dan dia la suggest untuk kami menghabiskan masa dan kekayaan dekat cafe ni. Memandangkan masih mood raya, memang kebanyakkan cafe masih belum beroperasi. ML ni je yang aku yakin bukak. Check i.g diorang, memang dah bukak start 28hb.

Aku uber je dari office, around 2km je dari office aku. Lokasi dia memang betul-betul dekat Petaling street sebelum gate besar tu. Almost 10 tahun jugak tak jejak kaki kat sini. Kecuakkan tu ada jugak since Uber aku drop jauh sikit dari cafe. Nak cari cafe ni pun tak senang jugak, kecik dan tersorok. Paling senang cari Kolej Pengajian Tinggi ATC. Sebelah tulah, kena dongak atas sikit untuk nampak signboard. Naik tangga dan terkesima tengok cafe ni. Memang awesome. Classic, rustic semua cukup. Tapi aku tak snap gambar banyak pun. Seat pun hampir penuh, kami duduk je mana boleh.

Menu yang masuk artikel Buzzfeed food sebab katanya "terlalu hipster sampai letak menu dalam frame"
Aku order "kai fan". nasi dengan ayam rempah. Sedap. Drinks aku pandan lemongrass cooler biasa-biasa je.
kebetulan takde orang, apa lagiii

Dj dengan Ab makan dessert je sebab diorang baru balik beraya. Nama dessert dia "Better than Sex" uuuu.... Actually roti jala, ada cheese, almond flakes, gula melaka syrup, strawberry dan aiskrim. Memang sedap. sesuai la dengan nama menu. eh. Gambar takde. Tunggu la entry Dj mungkin publish menjelang raya Haji nanti.

Dah habis makan, tengok kat belah belakang dah takde orang. Apa lagi, memasing naik syeh la bergambar. Ada yang fefeeling Yu Tsai, ada yang fefeeling Shikin Gomez.

Sesiapa yang ada berdekatan, boleh terjah. Parking mahal, sejam RM 3.50 subsequent hour RM 2.50. Cekik darah sungguh. Nasib baik aku Uber RM 0.45 je sebab ada dapat free ride. Balik dari sini aku paksa diorang hantar aku kat opis hahaha. Thanks gaiss.. Tapi sempat jugak la bebudak ni solat ngan tukar baju sebelum diorang p membakar lemak berjogging di Lake Garden. Aku pulak sambung ternak lemak dan beraya dengan member kat McD Bangi. #Inikanraya.

Yes, they can. Look at the history of the last 2000 years. There are historical facts fabricated by leaders of religions, themselves fabricated from whole cloth, that a majority of people in the western world believe implicitly. People are willing to make the core of their existence the complete belief and faith in a factual void - a complete fabrication constructed for them by those who would control their lives.

You may be technically correct Scott. However, another hard truth is that relatively few people read your work and your admirable refusal to compromise any of your ideals has lost you to the majority of the brainwashed. People like Hersch have half a chance of persuading sheep to just take a deeper look into a few things. With a little independent research, some may wake up to a point that they are ready for your more direct download of unapologetic information, but most currently would simply label you a tin foil hat and have the appropriate, prescribed fear of you.

Just FYI: I think you make good points. The reality that a delicate sense of compromise is necessary in order to accomplish anything in the face of overwhelming adversity is often lost on people. Uncompromising idealists tend to lose all of their momentum by running directly into brick walls.

          Climate wars all over again   

Only a naive optimist could believe the contemporary rhetoric that the Finkel Review might bring the climate wars of the last decade to an end.

As long as Tony Abbott lurks in the wings there will be war over climate. His whole persona is warlike, his political book is even titled Battlelines. A pugilist since student days, he has carried unremitting combativeness into his political life, and will do so until he leaves.

Recall Peta Credlin’s observation about how Abbott seized upon the ‘carbon tax’ meme when he was Opposition Leader. Here is an extract from a February 2017 article titled Here's the audio of Peta Credlin admitting the last seven years of politics is based on total crap by Mark Di Stefano in BuzzFeedNEWS:

“Tony Abbott’s former chief of staff Peta Credlin has let slip that one of the most damaging political campaigns in recent Australian political history was based on bullshit. Credlin made her comments during an episode of Sky’s Sunday Agenda:

“Along comes a carbon tax. It wasn’t a carbon tax, as you know. It was many other things in nomenclature terms but we made it a carbon tax. We made it a fight about the hip pocket and not about the environment. That was brutal retail politics and it took Abbott about six months to cut through and when he cut through, Gillard was gone.

“Okay, okay, okay. Let’s just provide some context. Australia has a complicated history in trying to do what many countries have already done – put a price on carbon emissions.

“Emissions trading scheme proposals contributed to the demise of Malcolm Turnbull as opposition leader in 2009 and Kevin Rudd as prime minister in 2010. Julia Gillard finally introduced a carbon-pricing scheme in 2011.

“It was Tony Abbott who re-framed Gillard’s scheme as a “carbon tax”, even though after the first year the price on carbon emissions was no longer fixed, and was instead set by the market.

“Abbott rode the anti-carbon tax movement all the way into The Lodge and eventually had everyone, including Labor and the media, calling it a carbon tax.”

There it is – the brutal truth - straight out of the horse’s mouth!

Abbott fought Julia Gillard with the ‘carbon tax’ weapon and won. Now he wants to fight ‘Electricity Bill Shorten’ in the same way.

Leading a clique of Coalition climate deniers and coal advocates, Abbott wants to implement a strategy that paints the Coalition as the party that will lower electricity prices, while Labor will increase them: “The Liberal Party has to be the party of cheap power, let Labor be the party of expensive power”. “I’ve spent a lot of time talking about electricity and the last thing we want to do is let Electricity Bill off the hook”.

Abbott has already made it clear where he stands on the Finkel report: Independent Review into the Future Security of the National Electricity Market: "There are two criteria. First of all, does it take the pressure off power prices? And second, does it allow coal to continue?" Moreover, Abbott insists that: “…a new low emissions target should deliver cheaper power and not ‘clobber’ Australia's economy.”

Note that there is no mention of bringing down emissions – Abbott couldn’t give a fig about global warming, which he discounts. He is quite open about this: “…the nation's power system should be run to provide affordable, reliable energy, not primarily to reduce emissions”.

He insists: “Australia's emissions reduction targets under the Paris agreement are "aspirational only, not binding, not mandatory."

Abbott has disparagingly labelled Finkel’s Clean Energy Target – the heart of the Finkel Review – as a ‘tax on coal’, and a ‘magic pudding’, a well-worn but derogatory metaphor for a self-replenishing resource that magically serves everyone.

His fighting strategy is already pretty clear. Phil Coorey, writing in the Australian Financial Review, says: “Mr Abbott tore down Julie [sic] Gillard by campaigning against a carbon tax on the basis of high electricity prices and has indicated he will oppose a CET using the same line.”

With Abbott in the wings spoiling for a street brawl, what hope is there that Malcolm Turnbull, Josh Frydenberg, and other less cantankerous Coalition members will be able to counter the Abbott faction to reach a consensus? None.

Turnbull has another adversary in the climate wars when one adds into the mix the Greens who believe the Finkel plan falls short. They want to see coal mining eliminated and coal fired electricity generation phased out rapidly.

Even Labor, which has pledged cooperation with the Coalition, has its doubts. It is already heralding a revision of the Clean Energy Target when in power to make it more stringent. Moreover, its climate change spokesman Mark Butler said the Opposition could never support a CET that allowed so-called clean coal to be deemed a low emissions technology.

But Turnbull’s main adversaries are in his own party. Headed by the argumentative Abbott, about a third of the party room (but only twelve Liberals) spoke against the Finkel Review when it met to discuss the Review. About a third spoke in favour, and the rest were undecided. Several argued that Finkel’s CET was ‘too close’ to that of Labor, and therefore unacceptable, illustrating how pathetic this conflict has become. Abbott’s anti-Finkel henchmen include most of the usual suspects: Kevin Andrews, Ian Macdonald, Craig Kelly, Andrew Hastie, Chris Back, Rowan Ramsay, Russell Broadbent, Angus Taylor and Tony Pasin.

Bernard Keane of Crikey summed up the situation and Turnbull’s dilemma aptly:

"It’s all over but the shouting — Tony Abbott has signed the government’s death warrant by creating disunity within the Coalition over the Finkel review. For as the battle-scarred Labor opposition is so fond of saying: we’ve seen this movie before, and there’s nothing to suggest it will end any differently this time.

"Abbott knows the old maxim ‘disunity is death’ is more than a glib three-word slogan – it’s an undeniable political reality. But once again, a petulant and embittered former leader has judged his revenge is more important than the interests of the party to which he pledged fealty and the nation he swore to serve.

"And on polling day, voters will again express their disdain – not only for the perpetrator but the subject of his vengeance – by tossing out another ‘chaotic’ government because it can’t keep its house in order.

"The Coalition’s debate over the Finkel review appears to be about electricity prices, but it’s really about killing off Turnbull’s attempt to redeem himself with voters through an integrated energy and emissions policy.

"Just as Abbott did with Julia Gillard’s emissions reduction policy, the former PM is trying to provoke voter (and backbench) anxiety about Finkel’s Clean Energy Target by claiming it will increase the cost of living."

Tongue in cheek, Keane suggests a solution – that Turnbull resign and hand the keys of The Lodge to Bill Shorten – but, knowing that will not happen, says:

”However, there is a way that Malcolm Turnbull can emerge from the conflagration that is yet to come with what little remains of his integrity.

“Given he has little else to lose, the PM could fight to the death on the Finkel reforms, developing a credible energy and emissions policy and using his authority to gain cabinet endorsement, even if unanimous support from the joint party room is unattainable.

“Yes, that would inevitably lead to usual Liberal and National insurgents crossing the floor to vote against any such ‘greenish’ policy. But with Labor’s support in both houses of Parliament, the Finkel reforms would still prevail. This bipartisan signal would give the energy industry the certainty it desperately needs to make the investments that will bring electricity prices – and emissions – down.”

The climate wars continue, and will likely do so for weeks, even months to come. To succeed as Keane suggests, Turnbull would need to convince a majority of his party room to support the Finkel proposal, and then get the support of Labor, the Greens and enough of the Senate to pass the legislation.

That looks like ‘Mission Impossible’. The climate wars will continue while Abbott leads the charge. He will be aiming to kill off everything Finkel recommends, sweep away his hated adversary, and restore himself to what he has always seen as his rightful place – the leader of this nation.

Tragically for our nation, we do have the climate wars all over again. Unless Abbott wins his fight-to-the-death with Turnbull, the war will continue until he gets his way, or is eliminated from the battlefield.

The most pernicious, combative, aggressive, confrontational, and destructive politician in the modern era cares not what he damages or who he destroys. In February we published: Abbott’s legacy of destruction. Abbott has not changed, nor will he!

For him, winning the prize for himself is all that counts.

What is your opinion?

          Clinic In Florida Performs ‘Poop Transplant Tutorials’ Despite Ban From FDA   

Fecal transplant matter solution sits in a lab

Despite the FDA’s ban, one Florida clinic is using a controversial “poop transplant” procedure to help treat people with various medical conditions, sources say. Earlier this week, Buzzfeed reported that an unnamed clinic in Florida has been performing this strange transplant for patients around the country.

According to the Fecal Transplant Foundation, a poop transplant (also known as Fecal Microbiota Transplants) is a procedure in which “fecal matter, or stool, is collected from a tested donor, mixed with a saline or other solution, strained, and placed in a patient, by colonoscopy, endoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, or enema.”

Essentially, the transplant uses someone else’s feces and transplants them into the colon of another person in order to replenish “good bacteria” that has been killed by antibiotics. When antibiotics are used in patients Clostridium difficile (also known as C. diff.) invades the colon and in turn, can cause debilitating and sometimes even fatal diarrhea.

More than six months after Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election, people are still explaining why she lost. Political commentator Al Sharpton is the latest to give it a go.

Sharpton explained in a recent podcast with BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith that Clinton lost to Trump because she took her political base for “granted” and didn’t work for the votes of grassroots progressives who awarded Barack Obama two successful presidential contests.

          Ο Τραμπ και το Twitter: «Είμαι ένας σύγχρονος πρόεδρος»   
Ο Τραμπ και το Twitter: «Είμαι ένας σύγχρονος πρόεδρος»
Του τρόπου, με τον οποίο χρησιμοποιεί τους ιστότοπους κοινωνικής δικτύωσης, έπειτα από αντιπαράθεση που έχει ξεσπάσει μετά τα σχόλια που έκανε στο Twitter για δύο παρουσιαστές του τηλεοπτικού δικτύου MSNBC, υπεραμύνθηκε ο Ντόναλντ Τραμπ

«Ο τρόπος που χρησιμοποιώ τους ιστότοπους κοινωνικής δικτύωσης δεν είναι προεδρικός, είναι σύγχρονα προεδρικός» έγραψε ο αμερικανός πρόεδρος στο Twitter το Σάββατο.

Νωρίτερα αυτή την εβδομάδα ο Τραμπ είχε εξαπολύσει προσωπική επίθεση εναντίον της Μίκα Μπρεζίνσκι και του Τζο Σκάρμποροου, των παρουσιαστών της εκπομπής «Morning Joe». Τα σχόλιά του στο Twitter καταδίκασαν τόσοι οι Δημοκρατικοί, όσο και οι Ρεπουμπλικάνοι, αν και ο Λευκός Οίκος έσπευσε να τον υπερασπιστεί.

Σύμβουλοι του Τραμπ έχουν εκφράσει στο παρελθόν την ανησυχία τους για τις αναρτήσεις του. Ωστόσο, ο αμερικανός πρόεδρος επισήμανε ότι οι ιστότοποι κοινωνικής δικτύωσης του δίνουν την ευκαιρία να επικοινωνεί απευθείας με τους πολίτες, παρακάμπτοντας τα παραδοσιακά μέσα ενημέρωσης, το περιεχόμενο των οποίων χαρακτηρίζει «ψευδείς ειδήσεις».

«Τα ψευδή και κίβδηλα μέσα ενημέρωσης προσπαθούν σκληρά να πείσουν τους Ρεπουμπλικάνους και άλλους ότι δεν θα πρέπει να χρησιμοποιώ τους ιστότοπους κοινωνικής δικτύωσης» ανήρτησε στο Twitter. «Όμως θυμηθείτε, κέρδισα τις εκλογές του 2016 με τις συνεντεύξεις, τις ομιλίες και τα social media» τόνισε.

Ο αμερικανός πρόεδρος επιτέθηκε και εναντίον του CNN, αφού το τηλεοπτικό δίκτυο απέσυρε ένα άρθρο του στο οποίο ανέφερε ότι ένας από τους συμβούλους του Τραμπ ελέγχεται από το Κογκρέσο.

«Είμαι εξαιρετικά χαρούμενος που βλέπω ότι το @CNN επιτέλους αποκαλύφθηκε ως #FakeNews και δημοσιογραφία σκουπιδιών. Επιτέλους!» έγραψε.

Το θέμα αυτό, που τελικά αποσύρθηκε από τον ιστότοπο του CNN έπειτα από εσωτερική έρευνα, είχε ως αποτέλεσμα την παραίτηση τριών δημοσιογράφων του τηλεοπτικού δικτύου.

Ο Τραμπ έχει επανειλημμένα κατηγορήσει το CNN για ψευδείς ειδήσεις, ενώ για τον ιστότοπο Buzzfeed έχει πει ότι είναι «ένας αποτυχημένος σωρός σκουπιδιών».

Ο αμερικανός πρόεδρος έχει περισσότερους από 33 εκατομμύρια ακόλουθους στο Twitter. Οι αναρτήσεις του έχουν προκαλέσει την καταδίκη τόσο πολιτικών όσο και δημοσιογράφων.

Κάποιοι θεωρούν τη γλώσσα που χρησιμοποιεί ο Τραμπ ακατάλληλη για έναν πρόεδρο. Την Παρασκευή το κύριο άρθρο της «New York Post» με θέμα τα tweets του Τραμπ αποτελούταν από τρεις μόλις λέξεις: «Σταμάτα. Απλώς σταμάτα».

          Independence Days Sale Classic Vintage 1987 Tina Turner 45 RPM Bag Promo Of Single 'What You Get Is What You See'- No I'm Not Kidding by ProVintageGear   

31.50 USD

So... where were you in 1987? If you were a teen you were likely a fan of Tina Turner [ even if you didn't like Ike...] and you are now in your 40's nostalgic for the good old days when 45 rpm's still had some respect and mp3's represented some rank in the military police. If this is you this is just the bag you need. If it's your spouse or your mom this could be the gift you give that is never forgotten...

This is a genuine Tina Turner vinyl handbag with dual fabric handles straps sporting Tina with a classic 1980's hairdo on one side and her 1987 '45 RPM' of 'What You Get Is What You See' on the other side. In between Tina and the 45 is a handbag lined with...your guessed it...black vinyl.

The dimensions of this bag are

Length: 7.25 inches
Height: 6.75 inches
Width: 4.25 inches

Handle drop: 5 inches

Condition:

This bag is in good condition. There are no rips, tears or holes. However, one of the many rivets holding a side to the top has come off and there is a small separation. [ See photo 5 collage center top photo] However, this has not compromised the structural integrity of the bag and it still functions fine.

The actual 45 RPM record comes with this bag but unfortunately it's glued in so it's not much good for listening to. However, I was able to do a little research on this 45 and come up with Tina's music video and the lyrics to give you the experience this bag demands.

Turns out this may have been Tina's first effort at 'country rock'. According to Wikipedia, Eric Clapton was on the guitar(s), it was popular in Austrialia and it was used for a campaign by the New South Wales Rugby League.

Here is a link to the music video... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0GVixJvt-g

Here is a link to the lyrics... http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/tinaturner/whatyougetiswhatyousee.html

Oh yeah, and here is a link to a site called "25 Photos Of ’80s Hairstyles So Bad They’re Actually Good" to get you in the mood for the bag... https://www.buzzfeed.com/briangalindo/25-photos-of-80s-hairstyles-so-bad-theyre-actually-good?utm_term=.qfJBw3E5o#.ukpnqGlv9


So all you need now is the bag...

Have a great Holiday!

Greg

          Taking It in the Trump: Everything the President Did This Week (July 2nd, 2017)   
Main content trump recap 7 2 wide

As per usual, it’s been a clusterfuck of a week for Donald Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress, both of which have placed their focus on pushing health care reform through the Senate. Much to the president’s dismay, the highly scrutinized proposal failed to gain enough Republican support, and seems to have galvanized Democrats to take action into their own hands. Meanwhile, the Mr. Trump has been dishing out callous insults at news pundits via Twitter, preparing for his upcoming face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and undermining the special investigation into Russia’s possible meddling with the 2016 election. On the surface, it might seem like a typical week in Trump’s America, but there have been a wide range of important news stories that are worth wrapping your head around. Here's a recap of everything the president and his cronies did over the past several days.

GOP Healthcare Replacement Fails to Gain Support in Senate

  • After Republican Senators were heavily criticized for drafting up their Obamacare replacement bill behind closed doors, the proposal ultimately failed to gain enough support from GOP colleagues. Things have gotten off to a bad start for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other backers of the controversial Better Care Reconciliation Act. On Monday, a report from the Congressional Budget Office stated that the Senate's healthcare bill would leave 22 million Americans uninsured by 2026. The CBO statement also claimed that the average cost of insurance premiums would rise for the average person, but would eventually drop by 20 percent by 2026. Still, the detrimental effect that the reform would have on millions of people seems to have convinced a few Republicans to rally against the bill. Additionally, the AARP called on all senators to vote no on the measure and to “start from scratch” on the legislative process,

  • After the CBO report revealed the dirty details of the GOP replacement bill, support from the right side of the aisle started to waver. A number of Republican Senators, including Sen. Dean Heller (Nevada), Rand Paul (Kentucky) and Susan Collins (Maine), have come out against the proposal, effectively preventing the GOP from obtaining the majority of votes needed to pass the Better Care Reconciliation Act. As a result, McConnell has delayed the vote until after the July 4 recess, and will make changes to the bill before renegotiating with the GOP-controlled Senate.

  • Trump seems particularly keen on getting rid of Obamacare, even if the Republicans don’t have an agreeable replacement plan ready to take its place. On Friday, the President took to Twitter to call on the Senate to repeal the Affordable Care Act now and figure out how to reform it at a later date. If you look at this outlandish tweet as a policy statement, Trump is basically supporting the idea of scrapping health care without a viable backup plan for millions of Americans. A CBO analysis from last year found that repealing Obamacare without a replacement would result in 32 million people losing coverage by 2026 in total, while 19 million would lose Medicaid coverage.

  • However, although the president is hellbent on decimating anything that has former President Barack Obama’s named tied to it, Trump himself doesn’t seem to know much about the health care bill he’s adamantly advocating for. This past week, The New York Times reported that a GOP senator left a White House meeting with the feeling that the president didn't understand basic parts of the repeal plan. According to an aide who received details of the exchange, Trump "seemed especially confused" after a moderate Republican claimed that they would not support the measure because it appeared to be nothing more than a "massive tax break for the wealthy."

  • While the Republican party struggles to come to an agreement on how to repeal and replace Obamacare, the Democratic party seems to be collectively strengthening its argument for a more progressive healthcare system. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is calling for the left to integrate a national single-payer healthcare plan into their campaign platform in 2018 and 2020. She also argued that the Democrats would perform better in future elections if they ran a more progressive platform.

Trump and Putin to Meet Next Week, Reports Show GOP Involvement With Clinton Email Scandal

  • Next week, all eyes will surely be on the G-20 summit in Germany, where Trump is expected to meet face-to-face with Russian President Vladimir Putin. With the Russian investigation intensifying, officials seem worried about how the Commander-in-Chief will interact with the foreign adversary. On Thursday, a report stated that Trump has been asking his National Security Council staff to come up with a number of "deliverables" that he could offer Putin, which could possibly include an easing of the economic sanctions that were leveled against Russia by Obama back in December. Many national security experts have expressed concerns that the president’s eagerness to get along with the Russian leader could be taken advantage of. In fact, White House officials have hinted that Trump doesn’t even have “formal agenda” for the upcoming meeting, potentially giving Putin the upper hand in conversations.

  • On Wednesday, CNN reported that National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers is becoming increasingly frustrated that Trump does not believe the evidence suggesting that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Sources stated that the National Security chief voiced discontent over the White House’s lack of focus about the threat of future cyber efforts against U.S. voting systems.

  • Perhaps the biggest Russia-related story of the week, a former British intelligence official named Matt Tait claimed that he was approached last summer by a Republican operative who asked him to help verify hacked Hillary Clinton emails that were allegedly obtained by Russian hackers. The veteran GOP colleague, Peter Smith, was reportedly working alongside Trump’s former foreign policy adviser Michael Flynn to pursue and validate these emails. The report also suggested that Smith was in cahoots with Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway, possibly hinting at collusion by the president’s top aides.

  • Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was forced to resign from the campaign over criticism about his business dealings with pro-Russian interests, has also been scrutinized by the special investigation that is being headed by former FBI director Robert Mueller. On Tuesday, Manafort disclosed that his consulting firm had received over $17 million from a Ukrainian political party that has strong links to the Kremlin.  

  • Meanwhile, the team behind Special Counsel Mueller continues to grow, potentially spelling out trouble for the White House. On Friday, the former intelligence chief added Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Goldstein, a top federal prosecutor from New York, into the investigative squad. The highly respected lawyer is known for his role in successfully prosecuting multiple lawmakers on corruption charge.

Trump Lashes Out at the Hosts of MSNBC’s "Morning Joe"

  • The president has been under fire from both Democrats and Republicans for lashing out at Mika Brzezinski, the co-host of MSNBC's show Morning Joe. Here’s what the President of the United States decided to post onto his social media account…

  • Brzezinski and her colleague Joe Scarborough responded to the president’s indignant rant with a bombshell revelation, claiming that the White House threatened to have a negative story about the two news pundits published in the infamous tabloid magazine, the National Enquirer. “This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the President to have the story spiked," the two expressed. Unsurprisingly, Trump turned to Twitter to defend himself and give a different account of this bizarre scenario.

  • The vicious attack on Brzezinski drew criticism from both sides of the political aisle. A number of Republican Senators, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (South Carolina) and Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), spoke out against the president after he called the MSNBC co-host “crazy” and attacked her physical appearance. Here are a few of the most critical GOP responses to Trump’s unacceptable attack:

  • The latest Trump Twitter catastrophe seems to be impacting the president’s standing with the House of Representatives, as well. After the social media altercation took place, a total of 25 House Democrats came out to back a proposal that would give them a path to remove the president from office. This bill would create an Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity, which would allows for Trump to be removed from office if the Vice President and either a majority of the White House cabinet or Congress signed off on it.    

  • According to Laurence Tribe, a Harvard Law School professor who worked for the Obama administration, the claim that the White House told the Morning Joe co-hosts that they would “smear” them through a National Enquirer story would be a crime. If true, these actions could be a direct violation of the anti-extortion statute.

  • The dispute with the MSNBC news pundits wasn’t the only media-related controversy that Trump got himself involved with this past week. During a phone call with the new Irish prime minister Leo Varadkar, the president halted the conversation in order to comment on the looks of Caitriona Perry, a Washington correspondent for the Irish public service broadcaster Raidió Teilifís Éireann. "She has a nice smile on her face, so I bet she treats you well," the president said to Varadkar after telling Perry, who was in the Oval Office covering the discussion, to come closer to his desk.

Policy Recap: Trump’s Travel Ban Partially Instated, National Space Council Reintroduced

  • On Friday, Trump held a ceremony for his executive order that will recreate the National Space Council, a special advisory council that was responsible for the country’s first moon missions over 60 years ago. According to the Washington Post, even a relatively respectable moment for the Trump administration couldn’t go on without encountering a few hiccups. Not only did the White House not list the ceremony on the president's calendar, but no one from that NASA headquarters came to the event, while the one female astronaut who was in attendance was left off the thank-you list.

  • The president also refused to follow a major precedent set by Obama, refusing to acknowledge June as LGBT Pride Month. Although the White House has failed to explain why Trump wouldn’t recognize this celebratory event, he did find time to proclaim June as Great Outdoors Month, National Caribbean-American Heritage Month, African-American Music Appreciation Month, National Ocean Month, and National Homeownership Month. With all these special designations, many in the LGBTQ community can’t help but feel that the president’s silence was an intentional smack in the face.

  • The president received a minor victory from the Supreme Court this past week after they decided to allow a limited and temporary version of the Trump travel ban into law. The repeatedly failed executive order aims to ban travel from six Muslim-majority countries, barring visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from entering the U.S. Trump has hailed the SCOTUS decision as a “victory for national security,” but the outcome is not as simple as the president might hope. In October, the Justices will hear the full arguments for and against the travel ban, and will come to a more enduring decision on the legal validity of the executive order. Until then, visitors from these six listed countries that lack a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States” will be denied entry into the country.


          The Trump-'Morning Joe' Feud Has Twitter Talking, But Were Any Laws Broken?   

Jonathan Ernst / Reuters

The ongoing feud between the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe and President Trump took a turn on Friday when Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough published an op-ed, “Donald Trump is not well,” in the Washington Post.

In it, they wrote, “This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked.”

The story — ”Joe & Mika: TV Couple’s Sleazy Cheating Scandal” — was published on June 2.

Quickly, some of Trump’s toughest opponents on Twitter questioned whether laws had been broken.

While it is always possible to raise questions of potential criminal wrongdoing, too much remains unknown about the specifics of the Trump-Brzezinski-Scarborough love-hate triangle to draw many conclusions other than — even if it happened how Brzezinski and Scarborough say it did — that any prosecution likely would be an uphill fight. Experts say that, based on what we know now, there appears to be no criminal issue. At most, there are are too many unanswered questions to be able to determine whether a criminal case could be made.

The kinds of laws that Trump opponents are talking about here include New York’s coercion statute and DC’s blackmail law, as well as the federal extortion law.

The coercion and blackmail laws are similar, criminalizing when a person intentionally causes a person to do or not do something with a threat of — relevant here — exposing a secret, “whether true or false, tending to subject some person to hatred, contempt or ridicule.” The federal extortion law is basically a law against coercion by federal officials.

Harvard Law School professor Andrew Manuel Crespo, who teaches and writes in the areas of criminal law and procedure, told BuzzFeed News that many questions would need to be answered to know whether it is even possible that the actions violated any coercion, blackmail, or extortion laws.

First, he said, more context is needed regarding what the conversation actually was.

Under New York and DC law, a defendant needs to threaten the target of his blackmail or otherwise instill fear in that person that some bad consequence will follow if the demands are not met. But to understand whether or not there was such a threat being made, more would have to be known about the context of the language used and the intent of the speaker — did the alleged Trump associate seem serious, for example, or was it instead simply an offhand remark or joke?

Additionally, Crespo said, New York and DC law require that the threat be to expose “a secret” that would subject the target “to hatred, contempt, or ridicule.” However, whether the facts here constitute a secret could depend on how commonly it already was known that Scarborough and Brzezinski had been dating at a specific time. Even if a secret, there would have to be a greater understanding of how the secret was viewed — was it damaging in a sense that it could fairly be considered to cause harm to their reputations? (He noted that at least one New York court opinion suggests that threatening to expose an affair could count under that statute.)

On Friday, as the day went on, more claims about the episode came out — that, according to New York magazine sources, Jared Kushner discussed the National Enquirer story with Scarborough. All kinds of information remains unknown, including who initiated the exchange between Kushner and Scarborough, and what the context and substance of it was. (Scarborough has tweeted that he has records — but he hasn’t released them.)

Justin Dillon, a former federal prosecutor in Washington, DC, told BuzzFeed News that he didn’t think the current claims laid out a case for blackmail.

"I would call it icky horsetrading, but it is not blackmail. It's more like, ‘You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours.’ Blackmail is, ‘If you don't scratch my back, I'll stab you in the back,’" Dillon, a partner at KaiserDillon in Washington who has a white collar defense practice, said.

With respect to the federal extortion statute, Crespo noted that there would need to be a better understanding of what was asked for, because extortion generally requires that the defendant tried to extract money or something of economic value from the victim. If it was simply a private apology, for example, if would be difficult to argue how that would be sufficient to prove a violation of the law. Even if the apology were to be public, some value likely would need to be shown. If this was an attempt to gain, at most, political capital, not commercial value, that could be a much trickier case to prove.

Dillon noted another distinction — one that, based on the facts alleged by Scarborough and Brzezinski so far, led him not to see a case for extortion.

"It would be one thing if he were saying, ‘If you don't apologize to me, I will make the Enquirer run this story.’ But there's a difference between sort of refusing to intervene to prevent a bad thing from happening and affirmatively making a bad thing happen, and that is a distinction that matters under the law," Dillon said.

Shanlon Wu, a former federal prosecutor in Washington, DC, added that extortion typically involves a threat to cause some sort of harm — violence or spreading false information, for instance — which he said is different from a White House aide saying that Trump would not intervene to stop something from happening that he didn't directly control.

Beyond all of that, Crespo noted, it's not clear the extent of Trump's involvement in the conversations, so it's not clear whether Trump himself would be implicated in any potential violations of his associates.

In terms of other potential crimes, the former prosecutors saw nothing in the current allegations being made publicly leading to likely violations.

If Trump had asked for money in exchange for making the Enquirer story go away, Dillon said, that could amount to bribery, given his position as president — but nothing like that has been alleged.

If Scarborough and Brzezinski were threatened with some sort of government action if they didn't apologize to Trump or lay off criticizing him — an IRS audit or surveillance by a law enforcement agency, for instance — that would be an abuse of power, said Wu, who has a white-collar and criminal defense practice at Wu, Grohovsky & Whipple, in DC. But, again, nothing like that has been alleged here.

Based on the information made public so far, this situation seemed more like "clumsy political leverage," Wu said.

As Tribe’s regular legal sparring partner in recent months, Alan Dershowitz, wrote on Twitter, “Threatening to smear someone who smears him is not extortion.”


          Texas’s Illegal Execution Drugs From India Have Expired. It Plans To Buy More.   

Pat Sullivan / AP

Three-thousand vials of a banned execution drug that Texas, Arizona, and Nebraska have been fighting for the right to use have now expired, and Texas has vowed to buy more.

The states paid $75,000 for the drug — sodium thiopental, a powerful anesthetic — two years ago despite a warning from federal officials that it would not be allowed into the country. The shipments were seized, and since that time, the states have been engaged in a legal standoff with the Food and Drug Administration, arguing that they should be permitted to use the drug for "law enforcement purpose only."

While the sides fought in court, however, the drugs expired and may no longer be effective. Texas has indicated that it plans to buy more.

Doing so is not a simple matter.

Outlawed in the United States, sodium thiopental is still used in other countries, but most reputable drugmakers have enacted stringent measures to keep their products from being used for executions. Which is what led the three states, last time around, to a supplier in India named Chris Harris.

Harris has billed himself as a manufacturer of the drug, but a BuzzFeed News investigation cast doubt on his claims. He has no scientific expertise. He has listed two Indian facilities with the FDA and the Drug Enforcement Administration — one is a small rented office space, and the other is an old apartment that he left still owing rent on.

Instead, Harris purchased the drugs from another manufacturer in India, slapped his label on the vials, and then resold them at a massive profit.

Harris has repeatedly declined to speak with BuzzFeed News. “I think you people don’t understand English,” Harris wrote in 2015. “I have said I won't waste my time replying to you as you will write whatever you want anyways. STOP SENDING ME MAILS.”

According to FDA documents obtained by BuzzFeed News through an open records request, his drugs expired in May 2017.

A spokesperson for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice said the lawsuit would continue.

In an affidavit last year that has not been made public until now, a state official whose name was redacted wrote that Texas "intends to continue importing thiopental sodium from the same foreign source, and with the same labeling, as the entry that FDA is currently detaining."

A TDCJ spokesperson said that the state had not yet purchased “any further drug from this supplier,” and would “reevaluate the situation at the conclusion of this case.”

In 2013, a federal appeals court found that the FDA had “a mandatory obligation” to block all illegal shipments of the drug. Since then, the FDA has maintained that it is “required to refuse entry” to the shipments.

Last time around, Texas initially planned to buy from another Indian supplier, but the deal fell through when the supplier was raided by the Indian government. Its employees were all arrested for allegedly selling opioids and party drugs illegally to Americans and Europeans.

          Texas Attorney General Threatens To Sue Trump If He Doesn't End DACA   

Jason Redmond / AFP / Getty Images

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Thursday urged the Trump administration to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) — the Obama administration's executive effort to protect so-called DREAMers in the face of congressional inaction. If not, Paxton and 10 other statewide officials say they will take the administration to court.

Paxton's move comes in the wake of the Trump administration's decision to end Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). The Trump administration recently announced a formal end to DAPA — which had been put on hold by the federal courts — and an expansion of DACA that President Obama had signed at the time.

But notably, the Trump administration has said that the original DACA program will continue.

On Thursday, Paxton — joined by nine other attorneys general and one governor — asked US Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end DACA altogether. What's more, they wrote, if the Trump administration doesn't end DACA by Sept. 5, they will amend the existing lawsuit against DAPA and the DACA expansion to include claims against the entire DACA program.

That lawsuit is before US District Judge Richard Hanen, who has repeatedly and harshly criticized the federal government's DAPA and DACA programs — and the Justice Department's defense of them.

Notably, Paxton's letter includes just 10 total states. The original DAPA and DACA expansion lawsuit included backing from 26 states — a drop off of 16.

Today's letter is signed by the attorneys general of Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia — as well as the governor of Idaho.

The states in the initial litigation that were not represented on Thursday's letter are: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah, and Wisconsin.

          It Sounds Like The White House Is Getting Involved In The Ohio Republican Governor’s Race   

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence

Vice President Mike Pence sent a jolt into the crowded Republican race for Ohio governor this week when he used a visit to the state to wrap one hopeful in a warm political embrace.

Pence gave Rep. Jim Renacci a seat on Air Force Two’s Wednesday flight to Cleveland and then was effusive with his praise for the congressman in a speech at a local sheet metal factory.

Renacci is one four high-profile Republicans running to succeed term-limited Gov. John Kasich in 2018. He has built his campaign around the selling point that he is the candidate closest to President Donald Trump and the anti-establishment movement the president has cultivated.

“I’m grateful to be joined by another friend of mine,” Pence said at the event, an official administration visit to promote Trump’s policy agenda. “A strong partner of this administration, a leader who represents Ohio with such distinction in Washington, DC, Congressman Jim Renacci is here. Jim, would you mind standing up?”

Pence added: “You know, I was for Jim Renacci before it was cool. I really was. I got to know him before he was even elected to the Congress. Now he serves on the powerful Ways and Means Committee. He’s been a great champion of economic growth and jobs here in Ohio, and I am truly honored — truly honored — that you would be with us here today.”

Renacci’s team quickly moved to spin Pence’s kind words as, at the very least, a wink and a nod from the White House.

“Conservative businessman and Ohio gubernatorial candidate Jim Renacci arrived aboard Air Force Two this afternoon with Vice President Mike Pence to join the vice president as he delivered his remarks at Tendon Manufacturing Inc.” the Renacci campaign wrote in a Wednesday evening email that featured a video clip of Pence’s praise. Aside from a transcript, it avoided overt reference to Renacci’s job as a four-term congressman.

The email concluded: “After the vice president’s visit today, it is safe to say that there is only one candidate in the race for governor of Ohio that the administration views as truly with them.”

Is it safe to say that? Pence advisers, including Nick Ayers, who on Thursday was announced as the vice president’s chief of staff, did not initially respond to inquiries from BuzzFeed News. After this story published, a source close to the vice president's team called to say that Pence's remarks were not tantamount to an endorsement.

Another aide, Marty Obst, responded via email. "The vice president was in no way making an endorsement but rather a personal comment to an old friend at an official event," he wrote. "However this has no bearing on what the president or vice president may do with respect to the Ohio gubernatorial campaign."

Ohio Republican Party spokesman Blaine Kelly said officials at the state party, which is neutral in the primary, "are not reading into the vice president’s compliment of Congressman Renacci."

Republicans nationally are watching the White House closely to pick up any signs of favoritism, particularly in competitive primaries, as the 2018 midterms approach. And Pence has recently embraced a role as the GOP’s top political asset.

The GOP in Ohio is divided between Trump Republicans and Kasich Republicans, with a little overlap. Renacci’s effort to stake an exclusive claim to Trumpism and its followers has rankled Republicans partial to his three rivals: Attorney General Mike DeWine, Secretary of State Jon Husted, and Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor.

Many Trump Republicans remain furious that Kasich didn’t endorse or even vote for Trump after losing the GOP nomination to Trump last year. Trump won the state by 8 points, and appealing to his voters without alienating Kasich allies could prove a delicate primary dance.

Kasich and Renacci are not close — the congressman has even spoken critically of the governor.

Earlier this week, Renacci’s campaign trumpeted an endorsement from an organization that promotes itself as the oldest and largest tea party group on Facebook. In announcing the support, the group slammed Kasich: “Jim is a man of integrity and during the presidential primary, he wisely endorsed Donald Trump instead of that lowlife John Kasich!” Shortly after announcing the tea party group’s support in an email that linked to the Facebook post trashing Kasich, Renacci distanced himself from the “lowlife” comment.

“While Jim is honored to earn the endorsement of a rapidly growing number and wide range of grassroots conservative organizations, he accepts those endorsements as a testament to his own platform and record, and not based upon their various views on other candidates or officeholders,” Renacci spokesperson James Slepian said in response to a question from BuzzFeed News. “Jim has great respect for Gov. Kasich and does not share that view of him.”

The Renacci endorsement was posted by Mike Michaels, who on his Facebook page identifies himself as the national tea party director for Citizens for Trump. That organization — along with Bikers for Trump, another organization that supports the president — endorsed Renacci earlier this month. The influence these groups have over Ohio voters could be tiny, but their blessings have helped Renacci promote himself as the Trump-friendliest candidate.

DeWine and Taylor could be competing more for the Kasich Republicans. Kasich has signaled a preference for Taylor, his deputy for two terms, while some of his loyalists favor the attorney general. Husted is not overtly aligned with either faction. All three are trying to build coalitions between Kasich and Trump backers.

Husted spokesperson Josh Eck, responding to Renacci’s attempts to depict Pence’s comments as a sign the White House has a favorite, texted a clip from an interview last year in which Trump praised Husted to a Columbus TV station: “He’s excellent, by the way, I have to tell you.”

Eck wondered: “Support? Does this mean President Trump supports Jon Husted?”

          The Senate Intelligence Committee's Russia Investigation Is Gaining Steam   

Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) speaks with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, on June 27, 2017.

Aaron Bernstein / Reuters

Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chair Mark Warner says the panel is moving beyond the initial stage of its Russia investigation to one that includes interviewing key players from the Trump campaign who have been cited in the press as having potential links to Russia.

“People like me have said ‘lots of smoke’,” Warner told reporters Wednesday. “Well, part of the reason we don’t know what the source of that smoke is because we’ve not had the chance yet to talk to any of the individuals who’ve kind of created some of the smoke. Now we’re getting into that phase.”

The first phase of the investigation involved interviewing members of the intelligence community about its findings regarding Russian meddling in the last presidential election. Warner said the next stage will likely garner more media attention due to the profile of the people with which the committee will speak next.

Warner said the committee expects Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law who also serves as a senior White House adviser, will keep his commitment to testify to the committee voluntarily.

Warner said he is “also pleased” that the committee is making “great progress” in obtaining financial documents from the Treasury Department’s financial crimes network related to the Trump campaign. Warner said they have the “first tranche” of documents “and are getting the second tranche.”

Committee Chairman Richard Burr told reporters after a public hearing on Russian election interference Wednesday morning that he thinks the committee could wrap up its Russia probe by the end of the year, but admitted that the timeline is “aspirational.”

Warner also confirmed Wednesday evening that the committee has “a commitment” to view memos written by former FBI Director James Comey about his interactions with President Donald Trump.

“We have a commitment to get appropriate access to the Comey memos,” Warner told reporters on Capitol Hill. “I’m pleased, I think it’s critical information that we have to have as part of our review process.”

Comey said he created unclassified memos recounting his discussions with Trump because he was worried the president might lie about their conversations. Comey said he was particularly uncomfortable with February meeting with Trump in the Oval Office, during which the president asked everyone but Comey to leave and allegedly pressured him to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

Though Comey has testified publicly about the contents of the memos, Warner said he’s “anxious to see his contemporaneous reflections on the meeting, particularly the Feb. 14th meeting,” and that the committee would gain access to the memos “soon.” It’s unclear whether the memos will be made public.

Earlier in the day, Burr also said the committee had “a commitment” to access the memos, Politico reported.

But both Burr and Warner would not reveal the source of the commitment to access the memos. Warner joked that since he was having a drink with Burr later, he wanted to make sure their statements were in sync.


          Trump’s Finally Getting To Implement His Travel Ban — And It Could Happen Today   

Steve Dipaola / Reuters

Spokespeople at the US State Department and Department of Homeland Security say more information about the implementation of President Donald Trump's travel ban will be coming Thursday — the same day the ban could go into effect.

News organizations reported on Wednesday night, however, that the State Department was already alerting US embassies and consulates across the world about new policies for enacting the executive order.

On Monday, just before 10:30 a.m., the Supreme Court partially lifted federal court injunctions of the travel and refugee bans laid out in Trump's revised March 6 executive order. The high court's ruling allows the government to enforce the ban for people with no connections to the US, but keeps the injunctions in place for "foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."

Under a June 14 memorandum signed by Trump, the bans can go into effect 72 hours after courts allow them to be enforced. That timeline means the bans could take effect as soon as 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 29.

The federal government has yet to say publicly when the bans will go into effect, but CNN reported that a senior administration official said the ban is to go into effect at 8 p.m. Thursday — timing that matched what a nongovernmental source told BuzzFeed News was expected. The federal government also has not publicly specified how agencies will define and enforce "a credible claim of a bona fide relationship."

James Lawler Duggan / Reuters

"We continue to work with the Departments of State and Justice on the way-forward for implementation of the Executive Order based on the Supreme Court’s ruling," Homeland Security spokesperson Joanne Talbot told BuzzFeed News on Wednesday afternoon. "We’ll release additional information tomorrow."

Nonetheless, on Wednesday evening, the Associated Press and, later Reuters, reviewed a State Department cable sent to US embassies and consulates, laying out the department's criteria for determining who has the "bona fide relationship" required to travel to the US.

As the AP described it, a visa applicant from one of the six affected countries "must prove a relationship with a parent, spouse, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling already in the United States to be eligible."

According to both reports, many significant familial relationships would not qualify under the new policy. "©lose family 'does not include grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers-laws and sisters-in-law, fiancés, and any other "extended" family members,'" Reuters wrote, quoting the cable.

Refugee applicants would, for the most part, be subject to the same requirements, according to the AP.

Asked about the cable and the new reports on travel ban policies, State Department spokesperson Pooja Jhunjhunwala wrote, "‎The AP story references internal Department communications, which we do not comment on."

As to the timing of the ban's implementation, she echoed the Homeland Security statement, saying that the State Department "can provide updates on timing tomorrow, as they become available."

The immediate implementation of the original January travel ban executive order led to significant confusion at airports across the country, with the chaos serving as a backdrop for the lawsuits that began appearing in courts that weekend.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs in both cases challenging the ban before the Supreme Court told BuzzFeed News Wednesday that they have received no information from the federal government about its implementation plans.

The Justice Department, meanwhile, initially referred questions to the Homeland Security and State departments. After the AP story was published, a Justice spokesperson reiterated that the department had not released any information about the new policies.

Earlier in the week, a spokesperson had said the Justice Department would be making one of the most significant decisions before the bans are implemented. In a briefing on Tuesday, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters the department "will be looking to the Department of Justice to get more clarification on what a bona fide relationship will be."

Nauert explained that State was working with Justice and Homeland Security to establish "what that terminology will look like." Referring to the Justice Department, she said, "They’ll make that designation and determination, and then we’ll follow through with it."

Nauert added that "everybody wants to get this right," so "they’ll probably take their time – as much time as they have – to make sure they get it right so that we can get that information and then get that out to our folks overseas."

Still, there was not much clarity at all in the Tuesday briefing because, as Nauert acknowledged, "[T]his is all still in flux and the lawyers are going through it."

The State Department had provided no on-the-record response to BuzzFeed News' inquiries about the department's implementation plans earlier Wednesday.

Under the revised travel ban, the six countries subject to the 90-day ban are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

As to the refugee program — which will be halted for 120 days for those without credible claims of ties to the US — Nauert did state that it would not go into effect for those refugees scheduled to travel to the US through July 6.

"[W]e have advised our refugee resettlement partners overseas that they should currently proceed with the resettlement of refugees who are scheduled to travel to the United States through July the 6th," she said. "Beyond July the 6th, we are not totally certain how that will work because, again, this is in flux, this is in progress."

Nauert also noted the country is about to reach the 50,000-refugee cap set by Trump in the order.

"We expect to reach that cap within the next week or so," Nauert said. Although the Supreme Court ordered that the cap cannot be used to halt refugees with "bona fide relationship" claims, the court otherwise allowed the 50,000-person limit to go into effect.


          Regular People Try To Punch A UFC Fighter   

Recently we posted a video with regular people squaring off against Olympic fencer Monica Aksamit, and surprisingly the Star Wars fan in the group managed to score 1 point off of Monica.

But fencing with swords is quite different than swinging your fists, so will this (mostly) new batch of regular people be able to land even a single punch on UFC veteran Krzysztof "The Polish Experiment" Soszynski?

A better question would be- do regular people even know how to throw a proper punch? According to this BuzzFeedBlue video the answer is a great big "NO".

          Regular People Try To Punch A UFC Fighter   

Recently we posted a video with regular people squaring off against Olympic fencer Monica Aksamit, and surprisingly the Star Wars fan in the group managed to score 1 point off of Monica.

But fencing with swords is quite different than swinging your fists, so will this (mostly) new batch of regular people be able to land even a single punch on UFC veteran Krzysztof "The Polish Experiment" Soszynski?

A better question would be- do regular people even know how to throw a proper punch? According to this BuzzFeedBlue video the answer is a great big "NO".

          Ana Navarro: Trump “is going to get somebody killed in the media”   

ANA NAVARRO: I’m a CNN commentator. I think that is unacceptable. I think that is the president of the United States taking things way too far. It is an incitement to violence. He is going to get somebody killed in the media. Maybe that will stop him. I am disappointed beyond belief by the answer that the Homeland Security adviser just gave. What a wuss. What a wuss. You could see that he is ceding his principles. You are the Homeland Security adviser and you can't stand here and say the difference between right and wrong? That's what's part of problem. He is surrounded by enablers that do nothing but shake their heads and nod their heads in agreement with everything that he says. They have got to stop. They have got to stand for democracy, for freedom of the press, this is just going way too far. The president of the United States is inciting violence against the free press, and America, we cannot stand for it.

[…]

NAVARRO: Nobody at CNN is scared. If anything, this is making each and every one of us more resolute not to cower at the bullying of this president. This is a free press. This is a free country. This is a democracy. And if he thinks that with these little tricks he’s going to scare [CNN president] Jeff Zucker, he’s going to scare anybody at CNN, he's got something different coming. We are resolute at continuing searching the truth, speaking the truth, and calling out right versus wrong.

[…]

NAVARRO: And he can't think it's funny. There's way too many unstable people out in the streets right now at this time of impassioned and heightened passions. We all know it. We've all seen it. We have seen the results of harassment. We have seen the results of shootings. We have seen the result of violence out in the street. And for the president of the United States, who is supposed to be unifying this country, on a July 4th weekend, to be tweeting out incitement to violence -- it is incitement to violence, let us not parse words, let us not call it by any other name. It is disgusting by this president. Yet one more disgusting act.

          Guns And KKK Members At Gettysburg Confederate Rally, But No Foes To Fight   

GETTYSBURG, Pa. ― A few hundred armed militia group members, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Ku Klux Klaners, supporters of President Donald Trump, and other self-described patriots descended upon the Gettysburg battlefield Saturday to defend the site's Confederate symbols from phantom activists with the violent far-left group Antifa.

Some carried semi-automatic rifles ― permitted in Pennsylvania ― as they peered out across the battlefield with binoculars, on the lookout for the black-clad, face-masked anti-fascists, anarchists and socialists they said they had heard were traveling to the national park to dishonor Confederate graves, monuments and flags.

Although many came expecting violence ― even after Antifa made it clear its adherents never planned to show up ― the only bloodshed came when a lone militia group member accidentally shot himself in the leg.

Part of the scene at the Gettysburg Battlefield on Saturday.

In the two years since white supremacist and Confederate flag admirer Dylann Roof massacred nine black parishioners at a South Carolina church, the movement to remove Confederate symbols from public property has gained renewed purpose and momentum. So far, 60 Confederate symbols have been removed from city and state-owned land across the U.S., according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Most recently, the city of New Orleans toppled four statues honoring the Confederacy.

This has incensed and energized militia groups and white supremacists across the country, who claim Confederate symbols represent heritage and history, not hate. In May, white supremacists showed up with torches at a monument to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia, after the city moved to take it down.

Saturday's rally in Gettysburg showed pro-Confederate activists increasingly agitated, armed, and itching for a fight ― even when there is no one to clash with them.

Once a storm had passed through and the sweltering July sun returned, they gathered on the battlefield here just north of the headquarters of Union Army General George Meade, whose army repelled the Confederacy in the Civil War's most decisive battle.

After singing the National Anthem and performing the Pledge of Allegiance, the hundreds of Southern Army enthusiasts ― many of whom wore Trump pins, hats or T-shirts ― took a moment to honor the Confederate flag.

"I salute the Confederate flag," they said in unison, "with affection, reverence and undying devotion to the cause for which it stands."

Billy Snuffer, who identified himself as the Imperial Wizard for the Rebel Brigade of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, told HuffPost that there were KKK members scattered across the battlefield to "aid law enforcement" and protect the area's 20 or so Confederate monuments from Antifa.

"The Confederate battle flag has nothing to do with slavery," he said, standing in the same area where 154 years ago the Confederate Army marched into town, abducting free black Americans and sending them to the South to be sold into slavery.

"This is our history, this is our heritage," the Martinsville, Virginia, resident said of the monuments.

Billy Snuffer (right),&nbsp;the Imperial Wizard for the Rebel Brigade of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, stands on the Gettysburg Battlefield with another Klan member.

In mid-June, rumors had spread online that Antifa, a decentralized group known for violently confronting white supremacists and hate groups, planned to burn a Confederate flag and desecrate Confederate gravestones in Gettysburg on July 1, the date the three-day battle began in 1863.

The rumors mobilized various far-right groups, who secured permits from the National Park Service to show up en masse to the battlefield, setting the stage for what they thought would be a dramatic showdown between the opposing fringe elements of U.S. politics.

But the central Pennsylvania chapter of Antifa told local newspapers last week that it never intended to gather at Gettysburg.

The rumors, the group told HuffPost in a Facebook message, were the work of online trolls. One such tale said Antifa members were going to urinate on Confederate gravestones. One problem: There aren't any Confederate gravestones to desecrate. Although some confederate soldiers are buried at Gettysburg, their final resting places aren't marked.

Still, efforts to quell the rumors didn't stop anti-government militia groups from across the country ― including West Virginia, Michigan, Nebraska and California ― from showing up Saturday.

"Our main purpose is just to defend the historical parts of the city here and stop them from being destroyed and keep people who aren't part of anything ... safe," said a 27-year-old who would give his name only as Thor and who said he was a veteran of the war in Afghanistan.

He said he was aware that Antifa likely wasn't going to show, but that he felt compelled to be there, just in case.

Thor, a Gettysburg-area resident and member of the anti-government militia group the Three Percenters, wore an ammunition belt around a bulletproof vest. The sleeves of his camouflage uniform were rolled up, revealing the word "INFIDEL" tattooed to his arm.

Asked what he thought about all the Confederate symbols being removed from public property across the U.S., Thor didn't mince words.

"It pisses me off," he said.

The assembled groups' hatred for Antifa Saturday was surpassed only by their anger at the growing movement to remove Confederate symbols from public property.

Ted Fields, a Sons of Confederate Veterans leader wearing a black leather biker vest, addressed the crowd using a megaphone and asserted that the dismantling of Confederate monuments could lead to the decimation of America itself.

"I believe their master plan is once they get us used to taking down some monuments here and there in some liberal cities, then they're gonna try it out here and see if that works," he said.

"The next thing you know, they're going to take our Constitution and say you know what? That was written by slave-holders, it's racist, let's get rid of it and become a communist nation. I don't want that on my watch."

The crowd cheered.

A woman named Jenny Lee, who claimed to be Robert E. Lee's 3rd great grandniece, implored the crowd not to be bowed by political correctness.

"We must never back down or be intimidated by the antics of the ignorant," she said. "And all the safety-pin-wearing, easily offended, butt-hurt, temper-tantrum-throwing, vagina-hat-wearing, face-covered, commie fascists can kiss my ass."

Lee was forceful in telling the crowd that the Confederacy ― and by extension, everyone gathered at the rally ― wasn't racist. The Civil War, she said, wasn't about slavery. (It was.)

Plus, she added to great applause, thousands of blacks fought for the South, neglecting to mention that they were forced to do so.

As the rally concluded, the sound of cannons could be heard in the distance, as Civil War re-enactors not associated with the pro-Confederate rally shot off blank rounds, smoke billowing out across a different part of the battlefield. Actors in blue and grey uniforms played dead and injured.

But the only person actually shot Saturday in Gettysburg with a real bullet was a 23-year-old militia group member named Benjamin Hornberger, of Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. According to U.S. Park police, Hornberger triggered his revolver when the flag pole he was carrying bumped against his gun holster. The bullet went into his leg. Police say officers quickly applied a tourniquet, likely saving his life.

According to PennLive, Hornberger talked to paramedics and "seemed in good spirits."

          Rosé Deodorant Is A Thing And We Don't Know How To Feel About It    

Ladies and gentlemen, we have finally reached peak rosé.

Thanks to aluminium and paraben-free deodorant brand, Native, you can now purchase limited edition brunch-scented deodorants.


          These Cats Have Better Nails Than You    

If you're feeling bad about your chipped nail polish, then these pictures aren't for you. Pet owners are now matching their manicures with their pets' nails, and posting the results online.

The person who started this trend is 19 year old Californian Cristi Hanzel who matched her manicure with cat nail caps purchased from Target, according to Buzzfeed News.

Turns out nail caps are quite a lucrative business, with ebay selling hundreds of coloured manicure sets.

Nail caps are a non-toxic alternative to nail polish, and are meant to be stuck onto the animal's claws, according to nail cap seller 'Soft Paws'.

The nail caps last for more than a month, and both the nail and glue are safe to digest if they are swallowed.

If you don't have a cat to try these on, there are always alternatives.
