from Bruce

Paul Krugman: Jeb and the Nation of Takers (NY Times Blog)
Maybe we were unfair to Mitt Romney; Jeb "people should work longer hours" Bush is making him look like a model of empathy for the less fortunate. All the obvious points apply: longer hours would mean more GDP (if and when the economy ever gets back to full employment), but not necessarily better lives, especially if the increase in GDP doesn't trickle down.


JON GRINSPAN: D.I.Y. Education Before YouTube (NY Times)
Kids like these read voraciously, with each book offering a glimpse of the thrilling world outside their isolated lives. They devoured histories, the Bible and Shakespeare, but also as many trashy novels as they could find. Many struggled to decide whether to study the fall of the Roman Empire or amuse themselves with what one called "obscene, libidinous, loathsome, and lascivious" newspapers.


Brittany Bronson: Money, Sex and Las Vegas Pool Parties (NY Times)
For three days every January, thousands of men and women pack hotel conference rooms for open calls, waiting up to eight hours in their swimsuits, hoping that during their short time with the panel, their look stands out. The few who make it aboard can easily be earning a six-figure income by the fall.


Glenn Nelson: Why Are Our Parks So White? (NY Times)
"The mountains are beautiful to watch," she said, pausing for effect, "from a distance."


HENRY ROLLINS: I FEEL BAD FOR PEOPLE WHO STILL OPPOSE GAY MARRIAGE (LA Weekly)
All the wedding photographs popping up on the Internet should be enough to convince anyone that this was a great decision. Take Jack Evans and George Harris, for example - together for 54 years, in Texas of all places, finally able to get hitched. I am looking at them now. The skies have not darkened with locusts and tomorrow there will be traffic. I do believe we will be OK.

Trivia Question from Yesterday


Copra an important agricultural commodity throughout the tropics and subtropics. What is the source of copra?


      Coconuts                                                      Source


Copra is the dried meat, or dried kernel, of the coconut used to extract coconut oil. The earliest evidence of the extracting and usage of coconut oil from copra is found in early Tamil literature from the 1st century AD. The word originated from the Malayalam word Koppara. Coconut oil is extracted from it and this has made copra an important agricultural commodity for many coconut-producing countries. It also yields coconut cake which is mainly used as feed for livestock.        Source

Un-Retires

Letterman

David Letterman was called back into action this weekend with a brand-new Top Ten List inspired by the recent presidential candidacy of Donald Trump.

Although he's been content since retiring as host of "Late Show" in May, Letterman called missing out on lampooning Trump's White House bid "the biggest mistake of my life."

Appearing with his pals Martin Short and Steve Martin at their live comedy show Friday night in San Antonio, he made up for lost time:

   10. That thing on his head was the gopher in "Caddyshack."
    9. During sex, Donald Trump calls out his own name.

For the rest - Letterman

Honors Kristofferson, Pride, Lauderdale

National Music Council

The National Music Council is honouring the life-long musical contributions of Kris Kristofferson, Charley Pride and Jim Lauderdale.

The trio was honoured on Saturday at the 32nd Annual American Eagle Awards during a Nashville trade show gathering of the National Association of Music Merchants.

According to a news release, Rosanne Cash delivered a tribute to Kristofferson with a rendition of "Loving Her Was Easier."

The awards also honoured artist manager Jim Halsey and country music producer/director Sherman Halsey, who died in 2013.

Speaking of the later, Dwight Yoakam said, "Managers are in fact artists, and that's who Sherman was."

Takes Stand

Whataburger

An iconic Texas restaurant chain will not allow the open carrying of guns on its properties, and industry experts say other restaurants will likely take the same stand against a new state law legalizing the practice in many public places.

Whataburger - with some 780 locations in 10 states - has drawn a mix of praise and rebuke since making the announcement this month, including a prediction of boycotts from one of the state's leading advocates for gun rights.

In an open letter on the company's website, Whataburger president and CEO Preston Atkinson said many employees and customers are "uncomfortable being around someone with a visible firearm." He described himself as an avid hunter with a concealed-carry license and noted that patrons licensed to carry concealed handguns will still be able to do so in Whataburger.

The law, which gives private property owners the right to prohibit open carry, was hailed as a victory for gun rights advocates who have staged high-profile rallies at the Alamo and Texas Capitol over the past couple of years. Some even brought military-style assault rifles into businesses as part of their demonstrations, prompting the Chipotle restaurant chain to discourage firearms on their premises.

Whataburger's decision is expected to pave the way for other restaurants to enact similar policies that will further limit where gun owners can openly carry their firearms when the law takes effect in January.

Wants Rich Americans

Australia

Flush with the success of a millionaire visa program to attract wealthy Chinese, Australia is now promising citizenship to rich Americans who are willing to bring their cash and entrepreneurial talent Down Under.

But there's a rather large catch: participants in the invitation-only Premium Investment Visa scheme will need to invest A$15 million ($11.57 million) for the privilege of becoming an Aussie.

Launched earlier this month but not widely publicized, the scheme's investment requirements easily top the existing two-year-old Significant Investor Visa (SIV) program, which asks for a A$5 million commitment and has been especially popular with Chinese migrants.

The program, which does not have any residency requirement, allows would-be migrants to invest pretty much anywhere except housing. In comparison, Significant Investor Visa holders must put at least 40 percent of their A$5 million investments in risky small-cap and venture capital funds, and be an Australian resident for 40 days a year for four years.

Apple Inc co-founder Steve Wozniak is the most famous U.S. entrepreneurial talent to take up Australian residency, after his son married an Australian and migrated to Sydney.

Less Hospitable

Canada

When Army Sgt. Patrick Hart decided a decade ago that he would not serve in the war in Iraq, he expected to follow the same path as thousands of American war resisters during the Vietnam era and take refuge across the border.

But after five years of wrangling with the Canadian immigration system, he came back to the U.S. - and ended up in a military prison.

The country that once welcomed war resisters has developed a much different reputation during the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan: Supporters say no U.S. soldier who has sought legal residence in Canada, either as a refugee or on humanitarian grounds, has been successful.

"Nobody's won," said Hart, a Buffalo native who exhausted his legal options then turned himself in to the Army, was court-martialed for desertion and sentenced to two years in prison.

There are an estimated two dozen U.S. military members still waiting out their fate in Canada, and the resisters' movement is seen as nearing a crossroads. With a national election three months away, supporters are hopeful for a Liberal Party victory and more sympathetic stance toward American military exiles, but bracing for the possibility Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper wins re-election.

Nearing Pluto

New Horizons

Come Tuesday, Clyde Tombaugh will pass within 7,800 miles of the icy world he discovered 85 years ago.

His ashes are flying on NASA's New Horizons spacecraft on humanity's first journey to Pluto.

New Horizons also is carrying a 1991 U.S. postage stamp that's about to become obsolete - it trumpets "Pluto Not Yet Explored" - as well as two state quarters, one representing Florida, home of the launch site, and the other Maryland, headquarters for the spacecraft developers and flight control.

When New Horizons rocketed away from Cape Canaveral on Jan. 19, 2006, Pluto was the ninth planet in our solar system. It was demoted to dwarf planet a scant seven months later.

Huge Haul Worries Fishermen

Herring

A little fish that New Englanders have sought since the Colonial era is at the center of a battle over how to manage massive boats that trawl swaths of ocean off the East Coast.

The catch for the Atlantic herring, which travels in groups sometimes numbering in the billions, is in the midst of a massive boom. Last year fishermen caught more than 95,000 metric tons of the fish for the first time since 2009, federal statistics show.

Now rival fishermen are raising concerns about the high catches, and regulators are starting to consider whether the big haul is adversely impacting the environment, marine mammals or other fisheries.

The herring trawlers can be more than 100 feet long and drag 300-foot nets behind them to catch hundreds of thousands of pounds of herring. Fishermen of other species complain that they also take other fish as bycatch, and environmentalists have long charged that they sometimes kill marine mammals. Fishing observers found that midwater herring trawlers killed four pilot whales, three seals and a dolphin through incidental catch in Northeast oceans in 2014, federal statistics show.

Fishermen and conservationists have also charged that wiping herring out of localized areas of the ocean makes those areas economically worthless because other species then stay away.

Massive Debris Removal Project

Alaska

A massive cleanup effort is getting underway in Alaska, with tons of marine debris - some likely sent to sea by the 2011 tsunami in Japan - set to be airlifted from rocky beaches and taken by barge for recycling and disposal in the Pacific Northwest.

Hundreds of heavy-duty bags of debris, collected in 2013 and 2014 and stockpiled at a storage site in Kodiak, also will be shipped out. The barge is scheduled to arrive in Kodiak by Thursday, before setting off on a roughly one-month venture.

The scope of the project, a year in the making, is virtually unheard of in Alaska. It was spurred, in part, by the mass of material that's washed ashore - things like buoys, fishing lines, plastics and fuel drums - and the high cost of shuttling small boatloads of debris from remote sites to port, said Chris Pallister, president of the cleanup organization Gulf of Alaska Keeper, which is coordinating the effort.

Pallister estimates the cost of the barge project at up to $1.3 million, with the state contributing $900,000 from its share of the $5 million that Japan provided for parts of the U.S. affected by tsunami debris. Crews in British Columbia will be able to add debris to the barge as it passes through, chipping in if they do. Pallister's group has committed $100,000. Delays due to weather could drive up costs, which Pallister said is a concern.

Weekend Box Office

'Minions'

Universal's "Minions" overran the box office over the weekend as audiences in the U.S. and Canada shelled out an estimated $115.2 million to see the evil-master-serving horde frolic on the big screen.

It was the second-biggest opening ever for an animated film and an easy win for the sidekicks who took the spotlight after playing supporting roles in two previous "Despicable Me" movies. The bright, babbling baldies have become key characters in the franchise from Universal's Illumination Entertainment.

Other movies debuting in the Top 10 this past weekend were "The Gallows," an ad-libbed high-school horror movie from Blumhouse Productions, the creator of the "Paranormal Activity" and "Insidious" franchises, and "Self/less," a sci-fi thriller about a near-death billionaire who transmits himself into a younger body.

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. "Minions," $115.2 million ($124.3 million international).
    2. "Jurassic World," $18.1 million ($21.7 million international).
    3. "Inside Out," $17.1 million ($19.1 million international).
    4. "Terminator Genisys," $13.7 million ($47.3 million international).
    5. "The Gallows," $10 million ($1.2 million international).
    6. "Magic Mike XXL," $9.6 million ($10.3 million international).
    7. "Ted 2," $5.6 million ($12.2 million international).
    8. "Self/less," $5.4 million ($55,000 international).
    9. "Max," $3.4 million.
   10. "Spy," $3 million ($1.7 million international).

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.
