Barbara Ehrenreich: In America, only the rich can afford to write about poverty (The Guardian)
There's something wrong with the fact that a relatively affluent person can afford to write about minimum wage jobs while people experiencing them can't.

Paul Krugman: Style, Substance, and The Donald (NY Times)
So now the conventional wisdom is that we're witnessing a temporary triumph of style over substance; Republican voters like Trump's bluster, and haven't (yet) realized that he isn't making sense. But if you ask me, the people who are really mistaking style for substance are the pundits. It's true that Trump isn't making sense - but neither are the mainstream contenders for the GOP nomination.

NICHOLAS BAKALAR: Eating Spicy Food Linked to a Longer Life (NY Times)
After controlling for family medical history, age, education, diabetes, smoking and many other variables, the researchers found that compared with eating hot food, mainly chili peppers, less than once a week, having it once or twice a week resulted in a 10 percent reduced overall risk for death. Consuming spicy food six to seven times a week reduced the risk by 14 percent.

Tom Danehy: Plan on watching the first Republican presidential debate of the season? Tom hopes you are because it should be TV gold (Tucson Weekly)
I remember the old days when Republicans erected the fake Family Values platform on which to stand and glare down at others. Divorce was a big no-no back then until Ronald Reagan came along and then it was, "It's okay as long as you don't talk about it a lot."

Adam Wears: 7 Embarrassing Conversations That Were Overheard By Everyone (Cracked)
Some jobs require people to be extremely serious and tactful while dealing with the general public, but our cops, bank tellers, and butt doctors are still human beings -- and human beings can be huge jerks.

Jess Zimmerman: "One downside to digital innovation: as formats die, we lose our past" (The Guardian)
As early internet users move into middle age and beyond, we can't expect our youth - digital or otherwise - to be accessible forever.

Jessica Glenza: "Harry Shearer on his Simpsons U-turn: 'All I can say is, it wasn't a stunt'" (The Guardian)
The voice of Mr Burns almost left the Simpsons after contract negotiations stalled. Now, as he voices a documentary about hurricane Katrina, he talks about his ties to New Orleans and why he's fascinated by Donald Trump.

Tim Lewis: "Buffy Sainte-Marie: 'My music is much more diverse than almost any singer you can think of'" (The Guardian)
The folk singer and activist on touring with Morrissey, her CIA files and her unique appeal after 50 years in folk.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

What company used Isaac Asimov to sell their computers?

       Radio Shack (Tandy)                                                      Source

"Radio Shack's TRS-80 Computer Is the Smartest Way to Write" | Modern Mechanix

Randall was first, and correct, with:
   My first computer, way back when, was a Trash-80
  Man... it had TWO 5-1/4 floppy drives and probably about 4k of RAM
  Doesn't seem like much now - but back then it was pretty good.

John I from Hawai'i says,

Deborah replied:
   I consulted the mighty Wiki and learned much about Mr. Asimov, but nothing about which company used him to sell their computers. So I'm going with a WAG and guessing Apple.
  Cooler but surrounded by smoke - that huge Rocky Fire is NW of here but the light and variable north winds blew some smoke our way. That thing is a monster.

Adam answered:
   Radio Shack

Illogical Lois Of Oregon responded:
   The answer is Radio Shack, which for good or ill, and much like giant sideburns, is mostly extinct these days, but computers march on! Literally. Yes, once the computer was HUGE, then was scaled down to fit in your pocket (is that a computer in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me) and now all grown up into (just wait for it) KILLER ROBOTS! Yes, EVERYTHING SNL has EVER made fun of (razors with three blades, placenta helper, AND NOW robot insurance) HAS COME TO BE! Get yours TODAY before it's too late!

  P.S. Dale, got a great laugh from the Antchrist! But you know the only thing worse than Giant Ants in your pants? Giant Crabs!

Doughnut Dale of Diamanod Springy, Nocal said:
   My Dad had one to take care of his parts and chemical inventory. He would go in and make an inventory adjustment, go outside and have a smoke, and that old T-80 might have it done.
  Work Dale is dealing with an insanely spastic centipede of a client the last few days. It happens every now and then. Wowie Zowie!

   Tandy. I don't remember the ads at all, but during that time of our lives we were living in the woods and off the grid. I didn't start using a computer until about 1985 or '86. Somewhere in there. Up until that time I thought a computer was a very expensive method of balancing your checkbook. My first computer was an IBM clone, had a 100 mb hard drive, a whole megabyte of memory and a color monitor. Very state of the art.

'Weaponized Marijuana' Videos


The New York Police Department faced criticism on Thursday after it emerged that video clips it used to show the crazed affects of smoking synthetic marijuana were of men high on other drugs.

The controversy emerged two days after NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton outlined his department's growing concern over synthetic marijuana, which he said is spreading across New York and is sold illegally for as little as $2 a packet in city corner stores.

To illustrate the threat to police officers and civilians, Bratton played two videos that showed delirious, ranting men, naked in public. In one clip, a bloodied man smashes a hole through a wooden fence with his bare fist before being pepper sprayed and dragged to the ground by a group of officers.

The NYPD confirmed on Thursday that the men in the videos, which were previously used in police training, were in fact high on other narcotics.

The clarification came after reports this week that one of the clips was taken from an old episode of the television show COPS and that the man had taken PCP, the chemical also known as Angel Dust, and not synthetic marijuana.

Recovered After 35 Years

Stradivarius Violin

Renowned violinist Roman Totenberg left his beloved Stradivarius in his office while greeting well-wishers after a concert in 1980. When he returned, it was gone.

Its case was later found in the basement of the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he taught. But Totenberg, who died three years ago at age 101, never saw the instrument again.

The trail went cold until this June, when his eldest daughter, Nina Totenberg, got a phone call from an FBI agent.

"I really could hardly believe it at the time," Nina Totenberg, the legal affairs correspondent for NPR, told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday. "I said, 'I have to call my sisters. I'll tell them not to get their hopes up,' but he said, 'You don't have to do that. This is the violin.'"

The violin, known as the Ames Stradivarius, was made in Italy in 1734 by Antonio Stradivari and is one of roughly 550 Stradivarius instruments known to exist. They can fetch millions of dollars at auction, including a record $15.9 million in 2011.

Wedding News

Aniston - Theroux

US actress Jennifer Aniston married her long-time boyfriend, fellow actor Justin Theroux, in a surprise ceremony in front of family and friends at their California home, People magazine reported Thursday.

The wedding took place Wednesday at the couple's home in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles, before about 70 guests, the celebrity magazine reported, citing unnamed sources.

"Guests were told it was a birthday party for Justin," one source told People. "Jen and Justin wanted to surprise guests and guests were certainly surprised."

Aniston, 46, and Theroux, who will be 44 next week, started dating in 2011, as they were filming the movie "Wanderlust." They were engaged a year later.

Video Released

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Federal investigators in Boston on Thursday released 25-year-old surveillance video showing a security guard admitting a man to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum the night before it was robbed of $500 million worth of art in the largest such heist in U.S. history.

The six-minute, 40-second video shows a young white man with a short jacket being let in by the guard through a rear entrance to the museum shortly after midnight on March 17, 1990, about 24 hours before the heist.

The statute of limitations on the crime has long passed, meaning that if the thieves are found they will not face prosecution. But the FBI, the Boston office of the Justice Department and the museum hope to recover the art.

The theft occurred when two men dressed as police officers were admitted by security guards to the museum in the early morning hours of March 18, 1990. They allegedly went on to overpower the guards who were found duct-taped to chairs in the museum's basement the next morning.

Due to a quirk in Gardner's will, the empty frames from which the paintings were cut still hang on the museum's walls.

Bounty Hunter Arrested


A bounty hunter was arrested after gathering a posse and mistakenly trying to raid the home of Phoenix's chief of police, officials said on Wednesday.

Brent Farley, 43, and 10 others surrounded Chief Joseph Yahner's home around 10 p.m. local time on Tuesday, thinking they were cornering an Oklahoma fugitive wanted on a drug charge, the department said in a statement.

Police said the bounty hunters were told they had the wrong address and were asked to leave numerous times.

The department said Farley, who confronted the chief after banging on the door and demanding he come outside, was carrying a handgun at the time, as were several others.

The bondsmen were working on behalf of two bond recovery companies, NorthStar Fugitive Recovery and Delta One Tactical Recovery, police said, and appeared to have acted on an unconfirmed tip on the suspect's location from social media.

65 New Laws


Dozens of bills opposed by Republican Gov. Paul LePage have become law because he misinterpreted the Maine Constitution and didn't veto the measures in time, the state's highest court said Thursday.

The Maine Supreme Judicial Court rejected LePage's argument that the Legislature's temporary adjournment in June prevented him from returning 65 vetoes to the House and Senate, siding with top lawmakers in a dispute that overshadowed the end of a contentious legislative session.

LePage said he's thankful that the justices resolved the issue and looks forward to moving on and "continuing to work for the Maine people."

But the court's ruling is a huge setback for LePage, whose increasingly bold actions since winning re-election last fall have alienated some members of his own party.

Sewage Flow Becomes Fracking Bust Indicator

Williston, North Dakota

The population of a U.S. oil boomtown that became a symbol of the fracking revolution is dropping fast because of the collapse in crude oil prices, according to an unusual metric: the amount of sewage produced.

Williston, North Dakota, has seen its population drop about 6 percent since last summer, according to wastewater data relied upon heavily by city planning officials.

They turned to measuring effluent because it was a much faster and more accurate way to track population than alternatives such as construction permits, school enrollment, tax receipts or airport boardings.

The recent high-water mark for Williston's population was 33,866 in August of last year, just before the oil price collapse. Crude oil has fallen more than 50 percent in the past year and hurt many companies' finances, leading to massive cost cutting, including the cancellation of projects and lay offs.

By June of this year, the town had shrunk to 31,800 people, according to the sewage data.

Defamation Lawsuit

Lincoln, Nebraska

The city of Lincoln must pay more than $259,000 to a woman who was wrongly accused by Crime Stoppers and local authorities of making ATM withdrawals with a stolen credit card, a judge in Nebraska ruled Wednesday.

The decision comes after a jury had already awarded $75,000 to 26-year-old Shayla Funk in her defamation lawsuit against Lincoln-Lancaster County Crime Stoppers Inc. and the city.

Funk sued after her image appeared on the Crime Stoppers website, with incorrect claims that she was a "crook" who made fake ATM deposits and withdrawals using a stolen credit card.

The video showed Funk withdrawing cash from her own account in April 2013, but she was misidentified as a thief because the video's time stamp was incorrect, which led bank officials to give police the wrong footage.

Lancaster County District Judge Steven Burns also ordered the city to issue retractions on the Crime Stopper's website, the Lincoln Police Department's Facebook page and on a local television station where her image was shown. The city must Funk give 10 copies of the retraction that she can use at her discretion.

Spanish Colonial Treasure Auctioned

Nuestra Senora de Atocha

An extraordinary collection of shipwrecked 17th and 18th century Spanish treasure discovered off the coast of Florida has sold in New York for about $2 million, an auction house said Thursday.

US treasure hunter Mel Fisher was most famous for discovering the shipwrecked Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha, which went down in a hurricane in 1622, laden with New World riches.

To mark the 30th anniversary of his find, auction house Guernsey's offered up nearly 40 items retrieved from the Atocha, her sister ship Santa Margarita and a fleet which sank in 1715.

An exquisite gold chalice from the Margarita was the top selling lot, fetching $413,000 at Wednesday sale, Guernsey's said.

The Atocha was laden down with riches from the New World and headed back to Spain when it sailed straight into a hurricane.

In Memory

George Cole

George Cole, the British actor best known for playing conman Arthur Daley on the long-running TV series "Minder," has died. He was 90.

Cole's career spanned more than 70 years from his first stage appearance in 1939 and included more than 40 films, including "Cleopatra," with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. From 1979-1994 he starred as cigar-smoking, Jaguar-driving Arthur Daley on ITV's "Minder."

Set in London's criminal underworld, "Minder" followed the adventures of a small-time crook always on the lookout for his next dodgy deal. Cole's shifty but ambitious character captured the money-conscious spirit of Britain in the 1980s, and he was twice nominated for best actor by the British Academy of Film and Television.

Born in south London, Cole started working when he was 14, appearing in the chorus of "White Horse Inn" in 1939. He starred with Alastair Sim in the 1941 film "Cottage to Let," in which he played a resourceful evacuee from wartime London who unmasks a spy. Sim, an older actor with an established career, took him under his wing and the pair appeared together in several films, including the 1951 version of "A Christmas Carol."

Cole also appeared in some 30 plays and numerous television series, including "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" in the United States.
