Charlie Jane Anders: George R.R. Martin Answers Our Toughest Song of Ice and Fire Questions (io9)
When we interviewed A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin at Comic-Con, we decided to drill down and ask some intense questions. Like, is this series only seven books long because some subplots took over the story? Are the Dothraki one-dimensional stereotypes? What does he think of Sliders? Here's what he told us.


Adam Wears: "6 Incredible Ancient Wonders (Destroyed By Idiots)" (Cracked)
When future archaeologists look back at our era thousands of years from now, they'll reach two major conclusions: 1) our subway system was very inefficient and bizarrely sandwich-centric, and 2) we were morons. Why? Because if it wasn't for some of our contemporaries (mostly tourists, to no one's surprise), those future people could have enjoyed recently ruined historical locales like ...

Trivia Question of the Day


Who was the first actor ever to refuse an Academy Award? (Hint: It's not Marlon Brando.)

                                  



Send your answer to Marty









Trivia Question from Yesterday


In 1936, Ruth Harkness brought the first live _____?_____ to the US.


      Panda                                                      Source


The West first learned of the giant panda on 11 March 1869, when the French missionary Armand David received a skin from a hunter. The first Westerner known to have seen a living giant panda is the German zoologist Hugo Weigold, who purchased a cub in 1916. Kermit and Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., became the first Westerners to shoot a panda, on an expedition funded by the Field Museum of Natural History in the 1920s. In 1936, Ruth Harkness became the first Westerner to bring back a live giant panda, a cub named Su Lin which went to live at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. In 1938, five giant pandas were sent to London. Activities such as these were halted because of wars; for the next half of the century, the West knew little of giant pandas.        Source






Lacrimating Lois Of Oregon was first, and correct, with:
   Ruth Harkness enslaved a Giant Panda cub and brought it to the U.S. to be gawked at by rubes and die an unnatural death at the tender age of three. Good job Ruth. See you in hell.

BartCop

Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to active@bartcop.com.

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on bartcop.com

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

New Host Of "Face the Nation"

John Dickerson

CBS News moved swiftly Sunday after Bob Schieffer's retirement announcement to name the network's political director, John Dickerson, as the new moderator of "Face the Nation."

Dickerson, a former Time magazine and Slate writer who has been with CBS since 2009, will begin his new role early this summer.

Schieffer, who made the announcement on Sunday's show, noted that Dickerson "sure has the right bloodlines" for the assignment. Dickerson's mother, Nancy, was the first female correspondent in the CBS News Washington bureau.

Schieffer, the 78-year-old chief Washington correspondent of CBS News, announced Wednesday that he would be leaving the job early this summer. Schieffer has been with CBS News since 1969 and "Face the Nation" moderator since 1991.

Episodes Leaked

'Game of Thrones'

Already the most pirated show in television history, HBO's fantasy epic Games of Thrones was hit by a new leak Sunday just hours before the premiere of its hotly-anticipated fifth season.

With the start of the new series due to air simultaneously at 0100 GMT Monday in 170 countries, eager but unscrupulous fans were already downloading four leaked episodes.

"Sadly, it seems the leaked four episodes of the upcoming season of Game of Thrones originated from within a group approved by HBO to receive them. We're actively assessing how this breach occurred," the cable TV network said.

HBO had decided on the unusual simultaneous global release schedule because the series' fervent following has made it a hot property.

Getting Italian Espresso Maker

Space Station

The next space station grocery run will carry caffeine to a whole new level: Aboard the SpaceX supply ship is an authentic espresso machine straight from Italy.

SpaceX is scheduled to launch its unmanned rocket with the espresso maker - and 4,000 pounds (1,800 kilograms) of food and other equipment - Monday afternoon. Forecasters put the weather odds at 60 per cent.

The experimental espresso machine is intended for International Space Station astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti of Italy. It was supposed to arrive in January, shortly after her arrival, so she could get some relief from the station's instant coffee. But it ended up on the back burner after a station shipment was lost in a launch explosion.

For the third time, SpaceX will attempt to land its leftover booster on an ocean barge.

Non-Native Goldfish

Colorado

A handful of goldfish dumped into a Colorado lake, evidently by a pet owner years ago, have reproduced and thousands of the non-native fish now threaten indigenous aquatic species, state wildlife officials said on Friday.

Rangers in Boulder County last month detected teeming schools of the goldfish in a semi-rural lake, Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said.

The pet fish, a form of carp not native to North America, now number between 3,000 and 4,000 and state biologists are reviewing the best way to remove the invasive species, she said.

If the invasive goldfish escape into waterways downstream, they pose a threat to native species such as channel catfish, pumpkinseed and blue gill sun fish, wildlife officials said.

Arrested In Tennessee

Nelly

An attorney for Nelly says the rapper and reality TV star will be exonerated of felony drug charges once the facts are out.

Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Haynes, was arrested Saturday after a bus he was traveling in was pulled over by the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

According to their statement, troopers found five rocks that tested positive for meth, as well as a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Nelly, 40, was released from Putnam County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

Aetna, Cigna Balk

Angelina Effect

Medical researchers call it the "Angelina Effect," the surge in demand for genetic testing attributable to movie star Angelina Jolie's public crusade for more aggressive detection of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.

But there's a catch: Major insurance companies including Aetna, Anthem and Cigna are declining to pay for the latest generation of tests, known as multi-gene panel tests, Reuters has learned. The insurers say that the tests are unproven and may lead patients to seek out medical care they don't need.

That's a dangerous miscalculation, a range of doctors, genetic counselors, academics and diagnostics companies said. While they acknowledge that multi-gene tests produce data that may not be useful from a diagnostic standpoint, they say that by refusing or delaying coverage, insurance companies are endangering patients who could be undergoing screenings or changing their diets if they knew about the possible risks.

The new panel tests, which can cost between $2,000 to $4,900, analyze 20 or more genes at once. That allows healthcare professionals to establish possible DNA links to other cancer-related conditions such as Lynch syndrome and Li-Fraumeni Syndrome earlier. Humans have about 23,000 genes.

All insurers cover screenings for BRCA1 and BRCA2 and for certain other genes for women who have family histories of cancer. Indeed, such coverage is mandated by the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

Group Leaves Arctic Drill Rig

Greenpeace

Six Greenpeace activists opposed to offshore drilling in the Arctic have abandoned a Seattle-bound drill rig they boarded in the Pacific Ocean six days ago, the organization said Saturday.

Rough seas prompted the decision, Greenpeace said in an email. The protesters rappelled off the rig and got into inflatable boats before returning to a Greenpeace ship stationed nearby.

The six climbed on the Polar Pioneer, a 400-foot rig owned by Transocean Ltd., about 750 miles northwest of Hawaii on Monday. A heavy-lift vessel called the Blue Marlin is transporting the rig to Seattle for staging.

Royal Dutch Shell, which leased the rig, hopes to use it for exploratory drilling during the summer open-water season in the Chukchi Sea off Alaska's northwest coast if it can obtain all necessary permits.

Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Gleason in Anchorage, Alaska, on Saturday granted Shell a restraining order against the protesters. The order, issued Saturday, prohibits Greenpeace activists from entering a safety zone around the rig and the Blue Marlin.

Faces Crowd Challenges

Rocky Mountain National Park

Officials at Rocky Mountain National Park are considering closing certain areas of the park on the busiest days if those areas get overcrowded, saying too many people and vehicles are putting a burden on trails, roads and wildlife.

The park had a record 3.4 million visitors last year, and officials have begun talking about ways to protect park resources.

Weekends in the summer have long been busy in the park, but visitation has spread out through all seasons with snowshoeing and sledding in the winter, fall colors and elk rutting, spring flowers and, of course, beautiful summer days.

Park rangers are urging people to visit on weekdays if they can, and to hike and climb in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the prime time from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There are also signs that warn people when areas are full.

Weekend Box Office

'Furious 7'

The high-octane thriller "Furious 7" maintained speed in its second week, racing away with $60.6 million at North American theaters and bringing its box-office total to a robust $252.5 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Universal's "Furious 7" more than lapped the competition. The only new wide release of the weekend, the rodeo romance "The Longest Ride," opened with $13.5 million.

That was good enough for third place for the Fox release, which stars Clint Eastwood's son, Scott Eastwood. In second was the DreamWorks animated alien adventure "Home," which pulled in $19 million in its third week of release.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

    1. "Furious 7," $60.6 million ($195 million international).
    2. "Home," $19 million ($15.2 million international).
    3. "The Longest Ride," $13.5 million ($3 million international).
    4. "Get Hard," $8.6 million ($1.4 million international).
    5. "Cinderella," $7.2 million ($12.6 million international).
    6. "The Divergent Series: Insurgent," $6.9 million ($7.9 million international).
    7. "Woman in Gold," $5.9 million.
    8. "It Follows," $2 million.
    9. "Danny Collins," $1.6 million.
   10. "While We're Young," $1.4 million.

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.
