Henry Rollins: Brexit Is Even Screwing Up My Record Collecting Habit (LA Weekly)
Days ago I was on eBay, going through all my bookmarks. Rarely is there an item by a band that I have not seen or at least seen listed, so when something new comes up, it is a big damn deal. I watch the bids to see if I can detect patterns, the rhythm of bidders squaring off and having real-time skirmishes as they up the price.
In the U.S., diamonds have been found in Arkansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. The Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas is open to the public, and is the only mine in the world where members of the public can dig for diamonds.

In Arkansas, I think.

Yesterday we canned 23 pints of peach jam. We made some spiced, which is subtle, and most with fresh ginger, which is my favorite by far. And that's only ˝ the crop. Jamming is on hold until the rest of the peaches ripen.
We've made several batches of pesto, too; the lemon basil makes an especially lovely pesto. That's on the "to-do" list after our morning bike ride.
I love this time of year.

Arkansas…The God -awful State of Arkansas…Altogether I spent around two months in total of my life installing chicken packaging systems at various Tyson facilities in the 80's. No wonder I was a drunk! That state has some of the most backwoods hellhole hollers that you could ever imagine…beyond fucking imagination. Arkadelphia, Markeesboro, Booneville and of course Paris!

Re: Bastille Day
MJ says it's a surprise we haven't co-opted Bastille Day yet like Cinco de Mayo. I did that years ago. Always used to throw a champagne party on July 14th so when it came time to set a wedding date I chose Bastille Day--two reasons to drink champagne every year!

On Thursday, just a week after Vermont's first-in-the-nation mandatory GMO labeling law went into effect, the Senate passed a bill that would override it.
The bipartisan measure, which passed 63-30, will set a national standard for GMO labeling that allows companies a variety of options for disclosing genetically modified ingredients, including on-package labeling, a scannable QR code, or a call-in hotline. The bill still needs to pass the House, which approved its own bill that overrides state-level laws and sets a voluntary federal labeling standard, and be signed by the president before becoming law. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., who cosponsored the bill with Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., called the bill's passage "the most important vote for agriculture in the last 20 years."
The USDA estimates that 24,000 more products would require disclosure under the Senate's regulation compared with the Vermont law. But there are concerns that the specific language of the bill would provide a loophole for processed sugars and fats made from GMO crops that would not require disclosures.
There was strong opposition, led by Vermont senators Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy, who forced the late-night vote by holding out for the full 30 hours of debate required by a cloture vote. In a statement, Sanders called the legislation an outrage that "speaks to the power of big money in American politics."
"The Grocery Manufacturers Association, Monsanto, and other agribusiness spent hundreds of millions of dollars against the Vermont law and against other states going forward to protect consumers," Sanders said.
Chaka Khan and her sister have entered a drug rehabilitation program to battle their addictions to prescription drugs, and Khan says the death of her good friend Prince helped hasten her decision to get help.
In a statement released to The Associated Press Sunday, the 63-year-old Grammy-winning singer said she has been battling an addiction to the same medication that led to Prince's death. Prince was found dead at his Minnesota home April 21. An autopsy found he died of an overdose of fentanyl, a powerful opioid painkiller.
"Unfortunately, I will miss concert appearances over the summer," she said. "However, it's vital that I put my health and well-being first. I know that I am disappointing some of my fans, but I also know they would want me to recover and be well and healthy."
Khan has entered an intensive rehabilitation and aftercare program with sister, Yvonne Stevens, also known as Taka Boom.
Khan said the pair "agreed we would take this journey together and support each other through the recovery."
The African Methodist Episcopal Church, founded by a freed slave who created a new religion rather than endure racism from white worshippers, is marking its bicentennial in its birthplace of Philadelphia.
As many as 30,000 people are estimated to be in the city for the AME Church's general conference, which started July 6 and runs to July 13. Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton stopped by the conference Friday, courting the black voting bloc that will be key to her success in November.
From its roots more than 200 years ago, the African Methodist Episcopal Church has been embedded in the struggle for freedom and equality, and draws on its rich past to remain a powerful political and religious force in American culture.
"There's a recognition that this is a denomination that represents African-American excellence, independence and autonomy," said AME historian Christina Dickerson Cousin. "The AME Church is pretty much as old as the country itself. What other African-American institution can say that?"
Today, the AME Church boasts more than 2.5 million members, with 6,200 congregations in 39 countries. It began with a handful of free blacks determined to start their own church, rather than endure the indignities of racism.

Across the world, we're eating more fish, and more farmed fish at that-but that doesn't mean wild seafood can catch a break.
That's the gist of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization's new biennial State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture report, published this week. Global per capita consumption is now more than 44 pounds of fish per year-the highest ever-providing close to 7 percent of protein intake around the world, according to the report.
Much of that new demand is being met by aquaculture, which for the first time is providing the majority of the fish consumed around the world. But even as the seafood supply is moving toward controlled tanks and ponds and away from boats plying the oceans with nets and lines, wild fish stocks continue to be overexploited.
According to an FAO statement, the report found that "almost a third of commercial fish stocks are now fished at biologically unsustainable levels, triple the level of 1974." In some waters, including the Mediterranean and the Black seas, overfishing has reached what the report called "alarming" levels. In the Black Sea, 59 percent of stocks are fished at unsustainable levels.
British singer Cliff Richard is pursuing legal action against the BBC and the police after the broadcaster televised a raid on his house, saying his reputation had been "unnecessarily damaged".
One of Britain's best known entertainers, Richard, 75, was investigated over allegations of sexual offences between 1958 and 1983, but the Crown Prosecution Service said last month it would not charge him, due to lack of evidence.
Having been cleared of charges, Richard, who maintained his innocence throughout the investigation, has started legal action over the BBC's reporting of the case.
The broadcaster televised a police raid on his house in August 2014. Richard said it had been wrong to make his name public before any charges had been brought.
Expelled Native American tribe members can't look to the federal government to reinstate them when their tribes have assumed final say over membership decisions, a federal appeals court ruled Friday in a case involving dozens of people who said they were kicked out of a Southern California tribe by leaders who wanted a bigger cut of casino revenues.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a decision by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs not to overrule the Pala Band of Mission Indians' expulsion of more than 150 members. The court said the federal agency reasonably concluded that the San Diego County-based Pala were operating under a tribal constitution that gave the tribe ultimate authority over enrollment decisions.
"In reaching our decision, we recognize with regret that plaintiffs will suffer severe and significant consequences from losing their membership in the Pala Band," Judge Milan Smith wrote for the three-judge panel.
But he went on to say that the federal government does not interfere in tribal enrollment decisions "in the absence of specific authority to do so."
Similar membership purges have affected hundreds of people in tribes around the country. They are particularly numerous in California, where many tribes reconstituted over the last several decades and then entered the casino business, according to advocates. Expelled tribal members can lose thousands of dollars in monthly stipends and other benefits.
With an excavation in southern Israel unearthing a Philistine cemetery for the first time, bones of the biblical giant 's people can finally shed new light on mysteries of their culture.
The cemetery's discovery marks the "crowning achievement" of some three decades of excavations in the area, the expedition's organisers say.
Some of the site's finds were going on display Sunday at the Rockefeller Archaeological Museum in Jerusalem.
Almost three millennia since the Philistines were wiped off the face of the earth by Babylonian armies, a US archaeologist was hard at work crouched in one of their funerary chambers at the excavation in the Mediterranean city of Ashkelon.

For over a century, paleoanthropologists have been fascinated by a gory question: were Neanderthals cannibals? In recent years, we've found remains that suggest cannibalism did exist in various parts of southern Europe but new remains found in northern Europe add further evidence to the "yes" answer and tell us more about why cannibalism was practiced.
Cannibalized remains have been found in Spain, France, and other parts of southern Europe but, according to a recent study published in Scientific Reports, these new remains are from the Goyet region of Belgium and are the first in northern Europe.
All the remains found at the site-human, horse, reindeer-show cut marks where muscle and bone were separated and "percussion" marks that show that bones were crushed to extract the marrow. Because the Neanderthals ate horse and reindeer, and because no modern humans were in the area, the researchers believe that these similar cut marks on human bones confirm cannibalism.
Neanderthals didn't just eat each other either. They also used bones as tools to sharpen stones, and may "have been aware that they were using human remains."
That being said, lest the reader think that cannibalism are just par for the course, remains found at other sites have contained uneaten, buried remains, showing that it was not a universal practice. At the Goyet site, the researchers claim that cannibalism was probably not part of a funerary rite.
It's a good time for animated animals at the box office. "The Secret Life of Pets" follows "Zootopia" and "Finding Dory" as the latest success this year, opening to a massive $103.2 million according to studio estimates Sunday.
The Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures film cost only $75 million to produce, and it features the voices of comedians like Louis C.K. and Kevin Hart. "Pets" has been warmly received by critics and audiences, who gave the film a promising A- CinemaScore.
"Pets" effectively unseated "Finding Dory" from its three-week run in first place. The little blue fish actually fell to third place with $20.4 million, behind "The Legend of Tarzan" which took in $20.6 million in its second weekend in theaters.
Even with the drop, "Dory" this weekend surpassed "Captain America: Civil War" to become the top film of 2016 domestically, with its $423 million in grosses. It helped push The Walt Disney Studios to reach $5 billion globally in record time. Much of that was propelled by the success of its family fare including "The Jungle Book."
While Disney is celebrating its overall box office, there is one dud on the books. The studio's "The BFG" fell a giant 60 percent in its second weekend. The movie, which cost around $140 million to make, has earned a dismal $38.7 million to date.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
1."The Secret Life of Pets," $103.2 million ($7.8 million international).
2."The Legend of Tarzan," $20.6 million ($27 million international).
3."Finding Dory," $20.4 million ($29.7 million international).
4."Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates," $16.6 million ($3.6 million international).
5."The Purge: Election Year," $11.7 million ($2 million international).
6."Central Intelligence," $8.1 million ($9.8 million international).
7."Independence Day: Resurgence," $7.7 million ($21.5 million international).
8. "The BFG," $7.6 million ($4.6 million international).
9."The Shallows," $4.8 million ($2.3 million international).
10."Sultan," $2.2 million ($18.2 million international).
