Dan Alexander: How Donald Trump Shifted Kids-Cancer Charity Money Into His Business (Forbes)
We get to use our assets 100% free of charge," [Eric] Trump tells Forbes. That's not the case. In reviewing filings from the Eric Trump Foundation and other charities, it's clear that the course wasn't free--that the Trump Organization received payments for its use, part of more than $1.2 million that has no documented recipients past the Trump Organization. Golf charity experts say the listed expenses defy any reasonable cost justification for a one-day golf tournament.
Bob Grimm: Girl Power (Tucson Weekly)
The DCU gets the blast of fun it sorely needed with Wonder Woman, a film that gets it right on almost every front and features a performance from Gal Gadot that makes it seem the role was her birthright.
Ooooh Rob, this American actor, comedian, singer, dancer, writer, and producer has received 5 Primetime Emmys, a Tony, a Grammy and was inducted into the TV Hall of Fame in 1995. He's also a 'Disney Legend'. What is his name?
Francois Henri "Jack" LaLanne (September 26, 1914 - January 23, 2011) was an American fitness, exercise, and nutrition expert and motivational speaker who is sometimes referred to as the "Godfather of Fitness" and the "First Fitness Superhero". He described himself as being a "sugarholic" and a "junk food junkie" until he was age 15. He also had behavioral problems, but "turned his life around" after listening to a public lecture about the benefits of good nutrition by health food pioneer Paul Bragg. During his career, he came to believe that the country's overall health depended on the health of its population, and referred to physical culture and nutrition as "the salvation of America".

Fitness Guru Jack LaLanne
Jack LaLanne. Low production values on his show, cheesy organ etc. But Jack was way serious about getting his viewers in shape and keeping them in shape. (I say round or pear is a shape.)
I remember Jack LaLanne from his TV show back in the 50s, and I remember
seeing him once being interviewed and how surprised I was to discover
that he was very short.

Stephen F responded:
My mom loved him
Oh, that's Jack LaLanne. My mom watched him when I was young. I liked that he didn't have a bag of excuses as to why people didn't exercise.
Woke to rain pattering gently on the patio cover. It's cool and smells really great. A welcome break from relentless sun and heat.

Kevin K. in Washington, DC replied:
That's Jack LaLanne. I remember him being on the TV when I was pre-school
age, and my mother was cleaning the house. She never did the exercises, he
was just on while she cleaned the house.

Jack Lallane, one of those Bay Area fixtures of my youth. I remember that he lived on a houseboat on the Oakland Estuary, by the Fruitvale Bridge in Oakland when I was around eight or nine years old. We used to drive by and say "Look its Jack Lallane's houseboat".
I remember seeing him on TV when I was a kid and thinking, "What's that all about? That looks like work! Besides, I got better fun stuff to do like running around in the woods and fields behind my house, climbing trees, catching turtles and frogs in the marsh, playing baseball, goin' fishin', and all..."
But, now that I'm a person of a certain age (I like that expression - so polite), I understand better where Ol' Jack was comin' from... So, I wear a Fitbit and walk on a treadmill, or ride a bike, and do the other machines within my limitations, and try hard to eat healthy stuff, and so on and so on...
And I'm part of the VA's www.move.va.gov/ program and have a dietician, kinesiologist, and clinical pharmacist keepin' close tabs on me... and they take their jobs very seriously, I'm tellin' ya. Ol' Jack would highly approve of those three young ladies. They are gettin' this Ol' Vet healthier, in spite of himself... I highly recommend it to any Vets enrolled in the VA Healthcare System...
Patriot Act NSA Spying Unconstitutional Section 215 National Security Letters Must End

If you want to put me in jail then come get me mother fucker.

A diamond ring purchased for ?£10 ($13) has sold for £656,750 ($847,667) -- roughly double its initial estimated value of £250,000 ($325,000) to £350,000 ($456,000) -- at the Sotheby's Fine Jewels auction in London last night.
The 26-carat ring was first purchased in the 1980s by an anonymous seller, who bought the jewel at a car boot sale, under the assumption that it was a piece of costume jewelry.
The startling realization of the ring's true value came decades later, when the wearer chose to have the ring appraised by a local jeweler. The ring was later identified as a cushion-shaped diamond set in a 19th century mount.
The ring first made headlines in May when Sotheby's revealed its estimated value of £250,000 ($325,000) to £350,000 ($456,000) -- already a far cry above its initial purchase price.

We might just be one step closer to a real life Jurassic Park scenario.
A three-inch fossil of a 99-million-year-old baby bird was found in an amber mine in Myanmar.
The hatchling is the most complete bird preserved in amber that has ever been found from the Cretaceous period, about 65 million years ago, according to a new study published in the journal Gondwana Research. The fossil includes most of the skull and neck, part of a wing and hind leg, and soft tail tissue.
Scientists were able to collect data from bone and tissue samples taken from its skull, neck, feet, and wing, and they determined that the hatching was a member of the avian group, Enantiornithes.
Researchers determined that the baby bird was newly hatched by examining its plumage. It was no more than a few weeks old before it was trapped in the sticky amber and preserved for millions of years, they found.
A giant temple to the Aztec god of the wind and a court where the Aztecs played a deadly ball game have been discovered in the heart of Mexico City.
Archaeologists unveiled the rare finds Wednesday after extensive excavations, giving journalists a tour of the semi-circular temple of Ehecatl-Quetzalcoatl and nearby ball court.
Records indicate that Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes first watched the ritual Aztec ball game at the court in 1528, invited by the last Aztec emperor, Montezuma -- the man whose empire he went on to conquer.
Historians believe the game involved players using their hips to keep a ball in play -- as well as ritual human sacrifices.
Archaeologists uncovered 32 sets of human neck bones at the site, which they said were likely the remains of people who were decapitated as part of the ritual.

The Spanish capital has become the latest city to launch a public awareness campaign asking male riders to keep their legs to themselves when sitting on the subway.
Not sure exactly what manspreading entails? In 2015, the word was officially added to the Oxford Dictionaries and is defined as: "The practice whereby a man, especially one traveling on public transport, adopts a sitting position with his legs wide part, in such way as to encroach on an adjacent seat or seats."
Following the lead of New York City, transit officials in Madrid have also boarded the offensive, posting signs on public transport this week asking gentlemen riders to be respectful of others and refrain from taking up more than one seat unnecessarily.
What started as a shaming campaign on social media in New York a few years ago became adopted as an official public service reminder on the city's public transit system in 2014, with signage that read, "Dude...stop the spread please. It's a space issue."
A former US cabinet member has said he fears Donald Trump (R-Crooked) is "losing his mind" and argues it is time to consider his removal from office.
Robert Reich, the author and chancellor's professor of public policy at the University of California, Berkley, is the former Labor Secretary to President Bill Clinton. He argues that it is "now time to seriously consider the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which provides for removal of a president who is 'unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office'."
Section four of the 25th Amendment allows Congress to form a body that can evaluate whether the president is fit for office, and remove him without impeaching him.
"I fear the man is losing his mind," Mr Reich wrote. "Today Trump attacked Democrats (whom he called 'Obstructionists!'), the Mayor of London (whom he derided as 'pathetic'), and the judicial system (which he termed 'slow and political!')."
"We know he's a sociopath, but he seems to be growing worse," Mr Reich said, citing a source close to Mr Trump, who claimed to CNN that the president "now lives within himself, which is a dangerous place for Donald Trump to be".
A gay, pro-Donald Trump (R-Homophobe) group in North Carolina might take legal action after they were denied participation May 16 to attend the "Charlotte Pride" festival and parade, which takes place Aug. 26-27.
The organization reserves the right to refuse applications from groups that "do not reflect the mission, vision and values of our organization," WJZY reported on Wednesday.
"I am very proud of my country, proud of my president and was once proud of my community," said Brian Talbert, a member of "Gays for Trump." "I will vote for Donald Trump again. I'm proud of my president. I don't think I should be vilified because I'm proud of a U.S. president as an American."
Talbert is planning to file a lawsuit against Charlotte Pride on the grounds of discrimination. He created a GoFundMe page on Tuesday to raise money for lawyer's fees. Since it was created, the page has raised $3,115.
The leader of an anti-abortion group who is being sued wants to disqualify a U.S. judge who barred him from releasing videos recorded at meetings of an association of abortion providers.
U.S. District Judge William Orrick has a longstanding relationship with an organization that partners with Planned Parenthood, attorneys for David Daleiden, a leader of the Center for Medical Progress, said in a court filing late Wednesday. The attorneys also said the judge's wife "liked" Facebook posts critical of Daleiden.
They asked Orrick to recuse himself from a lawsuit that the National Abortion Federation filed against Daleiden. The judge has blocked the Center for Medical Progress from releasing videos made at the federation's meetings and airing the names of its members.
The judge said last month that he will consider holding Daleiden in contempt of court after links to videos that were barred from release appeared on the website of Daleiden's attorneys.
Daleiden is also facing felony charges of recording people without their permission in violation of California law. The Center for Medical Progress has released several secretly recorded videos that it says show Planned Parenthood employees selling fetal tissue for profit, which is illegal.

Judges on a federal appeals court said Wednesday that they were concerned a Mississippi woman had been jailed for 96 days without seeing a judge or having a chance to make bail.
A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments in Houston in the case of Jessica Jauch, who is appealing a lower court's decision to throw out a lawsuit she had filed against Choctaw County and the local sheriff over her incarceration.
Jauch, 34, was jailed after being indicted for selling drugs, even though a police video showed she committed no crime. She wasn't cleared until she finally got a lawyer who persuaded a prosecutor to watch the video and drop the charge. Jauch was arrested in April 2012, but wasn't arraigned and brought before a judge until July 2012, when she was finally given a bond.
Victor Fleitas, Jauch's attorney, told the judges his client's lengthy detention without being allowed to see a judge violated her fundamental liberties, including the right to due process.
Every sheriff's office knows if they arrest somebody, "that person must be taken before a court," Fleitas said. "You may not unilaterally decide to hold them in your lock up for an indefinite time."
For years, two scientists have been painstakingly cleaning a century and a half of sand, sediment and corrosion from the first submarine in history to sink an enemy warship.
They drain the 75,000-gallon tank of water and chemicals three times a week for several hours at the Confederate sub's home in North Charleston, and then go to work in full protective gear, bent around nooks and crannies, gingerly chipping the crud off the H.L. Hunley, all for moments like this, when they can show the world something new.
The most recent discovery, made public Wednesday, involves how the sub moved through the water.
Hidden underneath the rock-hard stuff scientists call "concretion" was a sophisticated set of gears and teeth on the crank in the water tube that ran the length of the 40-foot sub. These gears enabled the crew rotating the crank to propel the sub faster by moving water more quickly through the tube, conservator and collections manager Johanna Rivera-Diaz said.
The biggest surprise for Rivera-Diaz? Discovering that some of the men wrapped the crank handle in thin metal tubes covered with cloth to try to prevent blisters.
