Matthew Yglesias: Matt Lauer totally blew it on Trump's blatant lying about Iraq and Libya (Vox)
Since their initial report that Trump was lying about this several different fact-checkers looked into it, and all concluded that Trump was lying. Trump's habit of lying about this has been widely discussed in the press. NBC News' senior political editor caught Trump lying as it happened, and as Trump himself noted Clinton flagged the fact that Trump was going to lie about this for Lauer.


Dylan Byers: Critics blast Lauer's 'Commander-in-Chief Forum' performance (CNN)
Lauer's handling of the NBC News "Commander-In-Chief Forum" with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Wednesday night was widely panned by journalists and pundits. The "Today" show co-host was criticized for spending too much time on Clinton's emails, lobbing softball questions to Trump, and neglecting to fact-check the Republican nominee when he falsely claimed to have opposed the Iraq War in 2002.


71 LPH: Trump's Amazing Plan To Defeat ISIS
We all know Trump has a secret plan to wipe out ISIS shortly after he takes office. He loves his country, but not enough to have shared the plan when first conceived, to wipe them out a year earlier. Patriotism has its limits.


Can Italy make its teens more cultured - by giving them 500 each? (The Guardian)
As of this month, Italy's school-leavers are eligible for a handout to spend on cultural purchases. Here's how they might splash the cash.


Game of Thrones: is Angela Lansbury heading for Westeros? (The Guardian)
The HBO show is rumoured to be adding a dame to the game for series seven. Unlike Ian McShane, the Murder, She Wrote star hasn't given away any plot spoilers yet.


Sam Adams: Everyone Misunderstood Brad Bird's The Iron Giant: It's Not About Guns. It's About Sin. (Slate)
Seventeen years later, the movie-the director's cut of which was released this week-has been enshrined as a cult classic, an animated children's flick that gives their parents plenty to think about and cry over. But with the Cold War now more of a distant memory than a half-healed wound, the movie looks very different, especially in light of Bird's subsequent career.


Willa Paskin: Diary of a Binge-Watcher (Slate)
In the '80s, Clive James said TV would never be more than "mediocre." Then, devouring endless hours of television changed his mind.


Claire Landsbaum: Trump Is Now Being Sued by Little Girls (NY Magazine)
A performance at a Trump rally in Pensacola, Florida, launched the group into the public eye, but the group's manager, Jeff Popick, is now suing the Trump campaign, claiming it reneged on a verbal agreement to pay for travel and expenses.

Throwback Thursday Trivia Question from Yesterday


This Hanna-Barbera cartoon character debuted September 10, 1966, on CBS. What is his name?


       Space Ghost                                                      Source


Space Ghost is an American animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. It first aired on CBS from September 10, 1966, to September 7, 1968. The series was composed of two unrelated segments, Space Ghost and Dino Boy in the Lost Valley. An alternative title, Space Ghost and Dino Boy, is used in official records to differentiate it from Cartoon Network's late-night talk show Space Ghost Coast to Coast. The series was created by Alex Toth and produced and directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

Space Ghost, along with teenaged sidekicks Jan and Jace and their monkey Blip, fight villains in outer space. Usually, Space Ghost's sidekicks would get captured or trapped by the villains, and Space Ghost would have to defeat the villains and save the day. His enemies included Zorak, Brak and his brother Sisto, Creature King, Black Widow (aka Spider Woman), Lokar, Moltar, and Metallus.        Source

An obvious fan of Lumpy called in to the TMZ program I caught the end of this afternoon. She wanted to know if Hil is elected and it turns out she's really sick (she's NOT no matter how much you wish it!) if she would be removed from office for "nonperformance" of duty.

Idiot has obviously never studied any history. Never heard about Reagan & Alzheimer's issues or Wilson & his stroke. Knows zippo about presidential succession. Nixon anyone?!

HELLO! Go back to f-ing SCHOOL & pay attention this time!

For one night only the 1974 comedy classic staring the late Gene Wilder is returning to US movie theaters as a special Fathom Event.

On October 5 across the US, those lucky enough to secure tickets are in for a comedic treat. Not only will they get to see 'Young Frankenstein' on the big screen they will also get to see its writer and director, Mel Brooks.

Brooks will be beamed into cinemas live from the 20th Century Fox lot where as well as discussing the film's making and paying tribute to his friend, Wilder, he will offer moviegoers a tour of the facilities including the boulevard that bears his name and the stages where the film was shot.

"Mel Brooks has sold out venues nationwide, including Radio City Music Hall, when he has introduced his movie classics. It is an incredible honor to be able to bring fans all over the country a live, personal introduction by Mel to one of his most famous and unforgettable films," Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas said. "It will be a night to remember."

"Young Frankenstein" will once again come to life on US cinema screens on Wednesday, October 5, at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT / 6:00 p.m. MT / 5:00 p.m. PT. Tickets are available via the Fathom Events website.

All Talk, Little Change

Hollywood Diversity

Diversity may be the mantra at well-meaning movie production workshops, studio execs' away days and awards ceremonies but inequality in Hollywood is as bad as ever, a new report suggests.

The study, by the University of Southern California, examined the 100 top films in each year from 2007 to 2015 -- apart from 2011 -- analyzing more than 35,000 characters for gender, ethnicity, LGBT status and disability.

Fewer than a third of speaking characters across the 100 top films from 2015 were female, a figure that has not changed since 2007, the university's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism found.

Just 26 percent of characters from 2015 films analysed by the school's Media, Diversity and Social Change Initiative were from underrepresented ethnic groups. LGBT characters represented less than one percent of all speaking parts.

There was no change at all between 2007 and 2015 in the percentage of black, hispanic, Asian or other races/ethnicities in top films.

Parasitic Flatworm

Baracktrema obamai

It's no Nobel Peace Prize, but Barack Obama has a new honor to brag about. Scientists have named a parasite after him - and there's no worming out of it.

Meet Baracktrema obamai, a tiny parasitic flatworm that lives in turtles' blood. A new study officially names the 2-inch, hair-thin creature after Obama.

Thomas Platt, the newly retired biology professor at Saint Mary's College in Indiana who chose the name, says it's an honor, not an insult. Really.

Platt, who discovered and named the flatworm to crown his career before retiring, has more than 30 new species to his credit. In the past, he's named them after his father-in-law, his doctorate adviser "and other people I have a great deal of respect for. This is clearly something in my small way done to honor our president," Platt said Thursday.

Platt says Baracktrema obamai "are phenomenally incredibly resilient organisms."

Final Stories To Be Published

F. Scott Fitzgerald

The final unpublished short stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald, whose book "The Great Gatsby" provided an iconic depiction of the excesses of America's Jazz Age, will see the light in April, 80 years after they were written.

Scribner, a Simon & Schuster imprint, said it will publish "I'd Die for You," a collection of stories that were considered too controversial for print when he penned them in the 1930s.

Like a character in one of his books, Fitzgerald had a short and tragic life, dying in 1940 at the age of 44 after struggling for years with his own alcoholism and his wife Zelda's mental illness.

In his final years, he wrote several stories and submitted them to major publications, but was repeatedly turned down by editors who said Fitzgerald's work was simply too provocative for the times.

"Rather than permit changes and sanitizing by his contemporary editors," Scribner said on its website, "Fitzgerald preferred to let his work remain unpublished, even at a time when he was in great need of money."

'Hid Amongst Hong Kong Refugees'

Edward Snowden

US intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden sought shelter among Hong Kong refugees after he leaked a huge trove of secret documents in the southern Chinese city, reports said Wednesday.

The former intelligence contractor had quit his job with the National Security Agency and travelled to Hong Kong in May 2013 where he initiated one of the largest data leaks in US history, fuelling a firestorm over the issue of mass surveillance.

Although Snowden stayed in an upscale hotel before the leak, little was known of his situation afterwards.

But a report Wednesday revealed he had been given shelter by the city's 11,000 asylum-seekers.

The 33-year-old stayed with at least four refugees, according to a New York Times report. It added they were all clients of lawyer Robert Tibbo, who helped hide Snowden.

28 Million Children Uprooted By Global Conflict

UNICEF

Some 28 million children around the globe have been driven from their homes by violent conflict, with nearly as many abandoning their homes in search of a better life, UNICEF said in a report.

The report released Tuesday found that while children make up about a third of the world's population as of 2015, they accounted for nearly half of all refugees, with the number of child refugees having doubled in the last decade.

According to the report, there were 10 million child refugees and one million child asylum-seekers, whose status had not yet been determined. The remaining 17 million children displaced by conflict remained within their home countries' borders.

The report said 45 percent of the children refugees came from just two countries: Syria and Afghanistan.

Increasingly, these children are traveling alone, with 100,000 unaccompanied minors applying for asylum in 78 countries in 2015, three times the number in 2014, the report found. Because these children often lack documents, they are especially vulnerable.

Judge Halts Fracking Plan

California

A U.S. judge on Wednesday halted a plan to allow fracking on public lands in central California, saying a federal agency's environmental plan should have taken a "hard look" at the potential impact of the process.

The ruling, by U.S. District Judge Michael Fitzgerald, was at least the second setback in three years for fracking in California and came as the Obama administration's rules for hydraulic fracturing on federal lands have been tied up in another court.

The U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which periodically leases out land to private producers, offered a plan that would have allowed fracking on about a quarter of new wells drilled on some 1 million acres across central California.

The final outcome is not clear as Judge Fitzgerald asked both sides for a further briefing on Sept. 21 as the case enters its remedy phase.

But it could be similar to that a 2013 case in which a federal judge ruled that the BLM violated the National Environmental Policy Act when it issued oil leases in California's Monterey County without considering the environmental dangers of fracking.

Big Decline In Wilderness

Earth

Unspoiled lands are disappearing from the face of the Earth at an alarming pace, with about 10 percent of wilderness regions - an area double the size of Alaska - lost in the past two decades amid unrelenting human development, researchers said on Thursday.

South America, which lost 30 percent of its wilderness during that period, and Africa, which lost 14 percent, were the continents hardest hit, they said. The main driver of the global losses was destruction of wilderness for agriculture, logging and mining.

The researchers' study, published in the journal Current Biology, was the latest to document the impact of human activities on a global scale, affecting Earth's climate, landscape, oceans, natural resources and wildlife.

The researchers mapped the world's wilderness areas, excluding Antarctica, and compared the results with a 1993 map that used the same methods.

They found that 11.6 million square miles (30.1 million square km) remain worldwide as wilderness, defined as biologically and ecologically intact regions without notable human disturbance. Since the 1993 estimation, 1.3 million square miles (3.3 million square km) of wilderness disappeared, they determined.

Habitat Protection Ordered

Canada Lynx

A federal judge ordered U.S. wildlife managers on Wednesday to enlarge habitat protections in Idaho, Montana and Colorado for the Canada lynx, a rare wild cat that roams the Rockies and mountain forests of several other states.

Chief U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen in Missoula, Montana, ruled that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service erred in 2014 when it revised its critical habitat designations for the lynx with little or no expansion beyond the original plan issued five years earlier.

The Canada lynx, whose large paws make it well adapted to hunting in deep, mountain snows, was listed in 2000 as threatened under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

The lynx is not considered imperiled in Alaska or Canada, where it ranges widely in forest areas, but its population in the Lower 48 states is believed to be small, though actual numbers are unknown, according to government scientists.

The Fish and Wildlife Service in 2009 set aside about 39,000 square miles (101,000 sq km) where logging, mining, snowmobiling and other activities that could disturb the lynx would be restricted or banned in parts of six states.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
