Josh Marshall: The Big Trumpers Still Don't Get The Trouble They're In (TPM)
A big federal investigation like this is like a broad lava flow. It moves slowly but it is unstoppable. It burns and crushes things in its wake. And things too big or unburnable it just covers over. The little antics and PR gambits mainly do not matter. Key players in this mix don't seem to appreciate that.

Paul Krugman: We Don't Need No Education (NY Times Blog)
What this means for the future is grim. America basically invented the modern, educated society, leading the way on universal K-12 education, building the world's finest and most comprehensive higher education system; this in turn was an important factor in how we became leader of the free world. Now a powerful political movement basically wants to make America ignorant again.

Julius Krein: William F. Buckley Jr. and the collapse of the conservative movement (Washington Post)
Buckley's conservatism, as portrayed by Felzenberg, however, rather resembles Gertrude Stein's Oakland: Cranks of diverse kinds pass in and out of it, but there's no there there. And while the purging of crackpots ought to be celebrated, what if all that remains are talk show hosts, sycophants and second-rate economists?

Andrew Tobias: "Ice-Cream-Wise (and Non-Ice-Cream-Wise)"
My fantasy - and it is only that - is that some crisis a month or three down the road triggers a lawsuit that can only be decided by the Supreme Court. And that that Court, though captured by the right, somehow finds the fundamental patriotism and fairness to say something like this

Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett: Books teach children vital lessons - disobey your parents and you could end up in a pie (TheGuardian)
Whether it's Peter Rabbit or Tracy Beaker, books offer children valuable insights into the world. Let's not allow austerity to restrict their access.

Ron Charles: "Why I still love Henry David Thoreau's 'Walden'" (Washington Post)
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately," Thoreau writes, "to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

Nathan Kamal: 6 Famous People Who Are Actually Nicer Than You Think (Cracked)
Everyone knows that the three main qualifications for becoming a celebrity are talent, perseverance, and a leaky sack of assholes where your soul should be. Every once in a while, however, there glimmers a silver lining in the great dick-shaped thunderhead that is fame, thereby reassuring us that the creepy shrine in our closet isn't unwarranted after all:

Trivia Question of the Day

This British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist was born Steven Demetre Georgiou. By what name(s) is better known?

Throwback Thursday Trivia Question from Yesterday

What is the name of this precocious five-and-a-half-year-old girl?

       Edith Ann                                                      Source

Mary Jean "Lily" Tomlin (born September 1, 1939) is an American actress, comedian, writer, singer, and producer. Tomlin began her career as a stand-up comedian, and performing Off-Broadway during the 1960s. Her breakout role was performing as a cast member on the variety show Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In from 1969 until 1973.

Edith Ann is a precocious five-and-a-half-year-old girl who waxes philosophical on everyday life, either about life as a kid or things for which she feels she has the answers, although she is too young to fully understand. She often ends her monologues with "And that's the truth", punctuating it with a noisy raspberry. Edith Ann sits in an oversized rocking chair (to make Tomlin seem child-sized) with her rag doll, Doris, and often talks of life at home with her battling parents and bullying older sister, Mary Jean (Lily Tomlin's given birth names).        Source

Hospitalized In Canada

Jimmy Carter

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was treated at a hospital Thursday after becoming dehydrated while helping to build houses in Canada for Habitat for Humanity.

The 92-year-old former president known for his post-presidential humanitarian work was taken to a hospital in Winnipeg as a precaution for rehydration, spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said.

Habitat for Humanity CEO Jonathan Reckford said the former president did not appear to be in serious medical danger.

Carter had joined Habitat as the organization builds 150 homes for people in need in Canada to celebrate the country's 150th anniversary.

The former president and his wife, Rosalynn, were in Edmonton, where Habitat is building 75 homes, from Monday to Wednesday before coming to Winnipeg, where the couple joined hundreds of volunteers working on 25 homes in the St. James community, said Rowena Sara, a spokeswoman for the organization.

More Disney Magic

Kermit the Frog

It isn't easy being green. But no longer being green is apparently even harder.

Steve Whitmire, the puppeteer who was fired after 27 years as Kermit the Frog said Thursday he is "devastated to have failed" Muppets founder and his mentor Jim Henson.

Whitmire has been with the Muppets since 1978, and took over as Kermit after Henson died in 1990. He wrote an emotional blog post in response to his firing a day after it was made public.

He said he was let go against his will, and would never have left voluntarily.

"For me the Muppets are not just a job, or a career, or even a passion. They are a calling, an urgent, undeniable, impossible to resist way of life," Whitmire wrote. "This is my life's work since I was 19 years old. I feel that I am at the top of my game, and I want all of you who love the Muppets to know that I would never consider abandoning Kermit."

Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage


Maltese lawmakers voted on Wednesday to legalize same-sex marriage on the Roman Catholic Mediterranean island, fulfilling Prime Minister Joseph Muscat's campaign promise to make this the first law brought before parliament in his new term.

The law, which drew cross-party support, removes words including as "husband", "wife", "mother" and "father" from the Marriage Act and replaces them with the gender-neutral "spouse", "parent who gave birth" and "parent who did not give birth".

Muscat said such wording was needed to avoid categorizing any member of society. He rejected accusations that this could spell the end to "Mother's Day" or "Father's Day", saying such suggestions were "laughable".

"I think this is an historic vote. It shows that our democracy and our society are maturing ... It is a society where we can all say we are equal," the prime minister told reporters.

Once a staunchly conservative nation, Malta has been steadily adopting more progressive legislation in recent years. In 2011, the country voted in a referendum to allow divorce, and in 2014 it approved civil partnerships.



Digby's Hullabaloo


Trump Jr


Donald Trump Jr (R-Sad) has long been the brawler who has helped fuel the president's pugilistic instincts and stood firm as one of his fiercest defenders.

Now the president's eldest son is at the centre of the firestorm over Russian connections swirling around his father's administration and trying to fight off charges that he was open to colluding with Moscow to defeat Hillary Clinton.

The story has revived comparisons between Mr Trump Jr and Fredo Corleone, second son of mob don Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola's classic Godfather films.

Fredo is seen as the weak link of Vito's three sons, an insecure man whose power plays backfire and who ends up causing major damage to the crime family.

"Ever since the campaign, a popular, behind-his-back nickname for Trump Jr. among some in his father's political inner circle has been 'Fredo'," the Daily Beast reported, citing Team Trump veterans.

Democrats Snatch 2 Statehouse Seats


Oklahoma Democrats, who have taken routine beatings from the GOP over the last decade, unexpectedly snatched two state legislative seats from Republicans in special elections this week and are now hoping to carry momentum into grabbing bigger prizes in 2018, including congressional seats and the governor's mansion.

Democratic candidates benefited from voter frustration over state budget problems and recent sex scandals that led GOP incumbents to resign.

However, Republicans still hold a 3 to 1 advantage in legislative seats along with every statewide elected office, both U.S. Senate seats and all five U.S. House seats.

Tuesday night's Democratic victories happened in districts in Oklahoma City and Tulsa with a mix of urban and suburban precincts, the kind of places where Democrats have made pickups in recent years. The larger cities have increasing populations of minorities and young professionals, who are more likely to vote Democratic. The Hispanic population in Oklahoma County, where Oklahoma City is located, grew 13.5 percent from 2010 and 2015.

And in both districts, veteran Republicans resigned amid a scandal.



Restricts Use Of Monsanto Pesticide


Tennessee on Thursday imposed restrictions on the use of dicamba, a flagship pesticide for Monsanto Co, becoming the fourth state to take action as problems spread over damage the weed killer causes to crops not genetically modified to withstand it.

Dicamba is sprayed by farmers on crops genetically modified to resist it but it has drifted, damaging vulnerable soybeans, cotton and other crops across the southern United States. Farmers have fought with neighbors over lost crops and brought lawsuits against dicamba producers.

Arkansas banned its use last week and Missouri, which initially halted dicamba spraying, has joined Tennessee with tight restrictions on when and in what weather spraying can be done. Kansas is investigating complaints.

"We've had damage across just about every acre of soybeans we farm in southeast Missouri," said Hunter Raffety, a farmer in Wyatt, Missouri. "In our small town, the azaleas, the ornamentals, people have lost their vegetable gardens. It's a big problem."

He suspects between 3,000 and 4,000 acres of soybeans on the 6,000 acres he and his family farm have sustained damage, evidenced by the leaves of plants constricting into cup-like shapes.

A typeface has sparked uproar in Pakistan after documents using the font were produced in a corruption case against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif -- despite being dated a year before the design was released.

Microsoft's Calibri font was used to type certified papers naming Sharif's daughter Maryam as a trustee for several of the family's high-end London properties.

The plush apartments are at the heart of the case against the Sharif family, with authorities and the opposition questioning the legitimacy of funds used to buy them via offshore companies.

The identity of the legal beneficiaries has formed part of the probe, and the documents were meant to show that Maryam, who is Sharif's presumptive political heir, was a trustee only.

But the papers were dated February 2006 -- a year before the font in which they are typed was in widespread commercial use, according to its creator.



Successful Full-System Test

Hyperloop One

Hyperloop One announced on Wednesday it successfully conducted its first full-system test. The company also revealed its "Pod" prototype that will transport passengers and cargo in the tube.

The test was conducted on May 12 at the DevLoop testing site, located in the Nevada Desert 30 minutes away from Las Vegas.

"Hyperloop One has accomplished what no one has done before by successfully testing the first full scale Hyperloop system," Shervin Pishevar, co-founder and Executive Chairman of Hyperloop One said in a statement.

The vehicle "coasted" above the track for 5.3 seconds using "magnetic levitation." The hyperloop vehicle pulled 2 Gs while running 70 mph, Phase 1's target speed. For the next round of testing, the vehicle will have a target speed of 250 mph.

The full system trial tested the motor, vehicle suspension, magnetic levitation, electromagnetic braking, vacuum pumping system and more, showing the components successfully work as "a single integrated unit in a vacuum."
