Henry Rollins: Trump Is Embarrassing Us in Front of the Whole World (LA Weekly)
I was hoping for some humorous anecdotes coming back from commie pal Trump's PR nightmare trip abroad. You know, funny shit like him calling King Salman "Swami" or some other Rudyard Kipling-esque face plant. That is what you would expect from a man who has absolutely no idea of how the world works, tasked with holding his own in settings where he is the most unprepared person anyone there had ever seen as the leader of a first-world country.

Amanda Madden: 5 Sexual Assault Myths, Debunked By An Expert (Cracked)
The most fortunate of us learned everything we know about sexual assault from two sources: Hollywood, and scandalous news stories that usually focus on the accused (since it usually takes a celebrity perpetrator to make headlines). Shockingly, they do not always paint an accurate picture of reality.

Dan Hopper: The 5 Disappointing Ways Game Of Thrones Could Possibly End (Cracked)
We're all on board with Game Of Thrones at this point. Nothing is going to happen this late in the game to make us stop watching The Direwolf Boob-Death Hour. But what is it, exactly, that we want out of these final two seasons (or season and a half)? Are we just shutting our minds off and watching to be entertained, or do we have specific expectations for the climax of such a massive fantasy epic?

Ronald Bergan: Adam West obituary (The Guardian)
When West was asked how he thought his career would have developed without Batman, he replied: "I never even think about that. How many actors get the chance to create a signature role? Not many. Somebody that each generation loves. That's a wonderful thing." One of West's most prized possessions was a drawing of Batman by the character's creator, the comic book artist Bob Kane, with the inscription "To my buddy, Adam, who breathed life into my pen and ink creation".

Rajesh Koothrappali (portrayed by Kunal Nayyar) is from New Delhi, India, and is a particle astrophysicist at Caltech. Raj's family is very wealthy.

Last Wish

Nancy Zingheim barely knew Rita Poe when Poe approached her office at the Washington state RV park. Poe, a shy registered nurse, had a request for the RV park business manager: Could Zingheim help her with her will?

Weeks later, the 66-year-old Poe died of colorectal cancer. In her will, she left nearly $800,000 to a dozen national wildlife refuges and parks, mostly in the American West. She named Zingheim the executor.

Zingheim knew little about Poe, who had moved to the Evergreen Coho SKP RV Park in the small town of Chimacum just five months earlier. She knew even less about national wildlife refuges.

That was in 2015. This year, Zingheim embarked on a 4,000-mile (6,400-kilometer) road trip to learn more about the woman who lived in an Airstream trailer with her dog and cat - and the wild places that captivated her.

"I wanted to see what they were," said Zingheim, 62. "I decided that I wasn't going to suddenly write checks to places at face value. I wanted to do my due diligence and find out what they needed."

The Muslim WWII Heroine that Time Forgot


Now A Warship

Gabrielle Giffords

The Navy's newest combat ship was put into active service following a commissioning ceremony Saturday, named after former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords who was injured during a 2011 shooting.

Giffords told a crowd at the ceremony in the Texas Gulf Coast city of Galveston that she was honored the 421-foot-long ship will carry her name and the vessel is "strong and tough, just like her crew."

Speakers including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said Giffords' strength and courage made her worthy of being the namesake of the ship, the USS Gabrielle Giffords.

Others who attended the ceremony included House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden, who served as the ship's sponsor.

The Navy has said it named the ship after Giffords because of the perseverance she showed after the shooting.

Activists Dress As Sharks

Hong Kong

Dozens of activists Saturday dressed in bloody costumes sprawled outside one of Hong Kong's most popular restaurants linked to the sale of shark fin soup to protest against the killing of the marine predators.

The southern Chinese city is one of the world's biggest markets for shark fin, which is viewed by many Asians as a delicacy, often served as a soup at expensive Chinese banquets.

Saturday's demonstration included about 30 protesters wearing finless shark costumes splattered with red paint, chanting "when the buying stops, the killing can too".

"Shark finning is a very cruel thing that lots of people do, and we're trying to stop a chain of restaurants from selling it," 11-year-old Narnie Hockings told AFP before donning her shark suit.

The demonstrators also dumped a large bag of fake shark fins, cut from their costumes, next to where people were waiting to enter the Maxim's Palace restaurant for lunch, before flopping down on the floor in protest.

White House Move


The US first couple has hardly gotten off to a conventional start. Now, after a period spent apart, it's in for a very public test: life together in the Petri dish that is Washington.

Donald Trump (R-Buffoon), for instance, all but ignored First Lady Melania -- left clambering out of a limo in a sumptuous, light blue designer dress and bearing a goodwill gift -- as he bounded up the White House steps in January to greet President Barack Obama and wife Michelle on Inauguration Day.

More recently the Slovenian former model appeared to swat away an outreached presidential hand as the couple walked along a red carpet upon arriving in Israel last month. The moment, captured on video during Trump's first and very high profile overseas visit as president, quickly went viral.

But now it seems it's time for the uber-wealthy Trumps -- separated for months by political triumph and a parenting choice -- to come together under another fancy roof.

The Washington-news web site Politico, quoting people familiar with the family's plans, reports that Melania and 11-year-old Barron will move in on June 14, the day Trump turns 71. CNN also said the move will be next week, but did not specify a date.

Contradicts Daddy

T-rump Jr.

Donald Trump Jr. (R-Legacy) appears to have contradicted his father's account of a conversation between the president and former FBI Director James Comey about the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn while seeming to confirm Comey's version.

"I think it's clear that everything that went on in the Comey testimony was basically ridiculous," Trump Jr. told Fox News' Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night. "You and I both know my father a long time. When he tells you to do something, guess what, there's no ambiguity in it. There's no, 'Hey, I'm hoping.' You and I are friends, 'Hey, hope this happens but you get to do your job.' That's what he told Comey."

Comey testified to the Senate intelligence committee on Thursday that Trump had told him, "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go."

On Friday, Trump denied ever saying that to Comey.

Wages Battle Against Regulations, Not Climate Change


While Donald Trump's (R-Corrupt) beliefs about global warming remain something of a mystery, his actions make one thing clear: He doesn't consider it a problem for the federal government to solve.

Trump's recent decision to pull out of the Paris climate deal was just his latest rapid-fire move to weaken or dismantle federal initiatives to reduce carbon emissions, which scientists say are heating the planet to levels that could have disastrous consequences.

Trump is waging war against efforts to curb U.S. dependence on fossil fuels. He's done that through executive orders targeting climate change programs and regulations, massive proposed spending cuts and key appointments such as Scott Pruitt as chief of the Environmental Protection Agency.

To what degree Trump will succeed remains to be seen. Despite the fanfare of his Paris announcement, including a pledge that his administration will halt all work on it, formally removing the U.S. from the accord could take more than three years. Rescinding the Clean Power Plan, President Barack Obama's signature measure to curb emissions from coal-fired power plants, likely would require three years. Trump's budget, which would slash funding for climate research and assistance to cities preparing for weather-related calamities, needs approval from Congress, where resistance is strong.

Still, the sharp change in course is being felt in ways large and small, down to the scrubbing of climate change information from federal agency websites. Environmentalists are predictably outraged. Even some Republicans are taken aback.

'Cancels' Visit To UK


Donald Trump (R-Crooked) has reportedly decided to postpone his state visit to the UK over fears that he could face mass protests, it emerged on Sunday 11 June.

The Republican property-tycoon apparently phoned Prime Minister Theresa May over recent weeks to tell her that he did not want to go ahead with the trip. "The statement surprised May, according to those present," a Downing Street adviser told The Guardian.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has said that Trump is "clearly terrified" of the British public.

"He knows that the British people find his politics appalling and that they won't be scared to make their views known," he said.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who promised to tell Trump that he is wrong over pulling out of the Paris climate deal if he was elected prime minister, also welcomed the news.

Salut Les Copains: Poptastic Playing Cards From 1960s


End Of Roaming Charges


Long an important source of revenue for telecom companies, roaming charges will be lifted in Europe starting June 15, raising pressure on operators in a tight market.

Roaming charges within and outside Europe account for an average of around five percent of sales for telephone operators in Europe, estimates Sylvain Chevallier of BearingPoint.

But the impact of the new measure will differ for corporate and individual clients, he adds.

On the Spanish market, subject to wide seasonal variations in business due to a reliance on tourism, Telefonica estimates the end of roaming charges in the EU will lead to a 1.2 percent drop in its sales this year.

But the change can hardly come as a shock for telecom operators, according to Victor Marcais of Roland Berger, who noted the plans have been in the works for several years and are "largely anticipated".

Weekend Box Office

'Wonder Woman'

Tom Cruise was no match for Wonder Woman.

Warner Bros.' "Wonder Woman" wrapped up Cruise's "The Mummy" at the weekend box office, pulling in an estimated $57.2 million in North American theaters, according to studio estimates Sunday. Universal's "The Mummy" looked its age, selling a relatively feeble $32.2 million in tickets in its debut weekend.

The poor North American opening for "The Mummy," which cost an estimated $125 million to produce, meant a weak start for Universal's ballyhooed "Dark Universe."

"The Mummy" is intended to launch a new, Marvel-style connected franchise that resurrects many of the famous monster characters - including Frankenstein, Dracula and The Invisible Man -from the studio's vaults.

The box-office reign of "Wonder Woman" is all but certain to end next weekend when Pixar's "Cars 3" opens.

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

    1. "Wonder Woman," $57.2 million ($58.1 million international).
    2. "The Mummy," $32.2 million ($141.8 million international).
    3. "Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie," $12.3 million ($1.7 million international).
    4. "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tells," $10.7 million ($34.8 million international).
    5. "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," $6.2 million ($2.2 million international).
    6. "It Comes at Night," $6 million.
    7. "Baywatch," $4.6 million ($10.7 million international).
    8. "Megan Leavey," $3.8 million.
    9. "Alien: Covenant," $1.8 million ($1.6 million international).
   10. "Everything, Everything," $1.6 million.

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?
