ALEXANDER BURNS and MAGGIE HABERMAN: Electoral Map Gives Donald Trump Few Places to Go (NY Times)
Donald J. Trump, confronting a daunting electoral map and a significant financial disadvantage, is preparing to fall back from an expansive national campaign and concentrate the bulk of his time and money on just three or four states that his campaign believes he must sweep in order to win the presidency.

Henry Rollins: Only Sometimes Am I the King of Fanboy Mountain (LA Weekly)
For many years, I have had a fascination with the obscure. Little-known facts, rare animals, seldom-visited destinations. Basically, information that very few find interesting. At this point, I reckon if most people are leaving it alone, it must be something I need to investigate.

Alexis Petridis: Seek comfort from the real news in the flotation tank of Kardashian drivel (The Guardian)
The experience of reading about Khloe Kardashian's vitamin E vaginal oil and Kris Jenner walking slightly in front of someone now feels almost like a warm hug compared to watching 24/7 horror [real news].

ROGER ROSENBLATT: To a Writer, a Body of Work Is a Taunt (NY Times)
Sometimes, when you are in the act of writing, you feel part of a preordained plan, someone else's design. That someone else might as well be God. And then one day you rear back and survey everything you have done, and think, Is this all God had in mind? But it's all you got.

How to boost your immune system (Harvard)
Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental assaults and bolstered by healthy-living strategies such as these: Don't smoke. Eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and low in saturated fat. Exercise regularly. Maintain a healthy weight. Control your blood pressure. If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation. Get adequate sleep. Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly. Get regular medical screening tests for people in your age group and risk category.

Trivia Question of the Day

What is the term for a group of hyenas?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

This actress, comedian, and guitarist was born María del Rosario Mercedes Pilar Martínez Molina Baeza. What is her mononymous stage name?

       Charo                                                      Source

María del Rosario Mercedes Pilar Martínez Molina Baeza (born March 13, 1951-US legal date of birth; March 13, 1941-Spain documented date of birth; see Date of Birth controversy below), professionally known by her mononymous stage name Charo, is a Spanish-American actress, comedian, and flamenco guitarist. She is known for her flamboyant stage presence, her provocative outfits, and her trademark phrase, "cuchi-cuchi".

Charo's year of birth has been the subject of dispute for many years. Official documents in Charo's birthplace of Murcia, her original Spanish passport, and her naturalization papers state that her birth date is March 13, 1941. After emigrating to the United States, Charo claimed that she was born in 1947, then changed it to 1949. She asserted in a 1977 court hearing that her passport and naturalization papers were wrong and that her true year of birth was 1951.        Source

   Oh, that's the Spanish in-your-face sex-kitten...



  Tell me that photo is not in-your-face. Go ahead, tell me... I will laugh in yours.


  But, ya know what? She's a dagnab fine flamenco guitar player of no small talent...

  Seriously, she is...


  But, those that have heard of her usually do NOT visualize her like that... No... They surely do not (see top photo - again)... However, that's her doing. She obviously decided long ago that her 'Cuchi-Cuchi' persona is far more marketable - and memorable... I think she's right.


  I would, though, be interested in hearing her play live... and, maybe, see some examples of her in-your-face persona, too, so much the better. I can properly appreciate raw, uber-overt female sexuality, dontcha know. Yep, you betcha...

Name Change


Remember Clarence 'Lumpy' Rutherford on Leave It To Beaver?

Lumpy was the rich kid - lazy, petulant, not too bright, packing a few extra pounds, and quite full of himself.

A coddled daddy's boy - arrogant, sullen, mean, and a bully.

I've come to the conclusion that Donnie Trump is the 21st century version of Lumpy Rutherford.

And, 'Lumpy Trump' has a nice ring to it.

So, from now on, it's no longer T-rump, but Lumpy.

NewAnt Species

'Game of Thrones'

A dragon from "Game of Thrones" has come to life - sort of.

A new ant species' dragon-like appearance inspired scientists to name it for the fire-breathing star of the popular fantasy series. The Pheidole drogon's large and distinctive spine reminded researchers of Drogon, one of the dragons on the "Game of Thrones" TV show, adapted from the novels written by George R. R. Martin.

The ant's spiny characteristics were captured in detail using 3D-imaging technology, which the researchers employed to help identify and document several new ant species. Their findings were published in two different papers published online today (July 27) in the journal PLOS ONE.

"This is one of the first studies in ant taxonomy to use micro-CT," study co-author Evan Economo, head of the Biodiversity and Biocomplexity Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST), said in a statement. "While this method is gaining popularity in different scientific fields, it is rare to use it in this way."

Now, scientists around the world can study Pheidole drogon without traveling to the tropical rainforests of Papua New Guinea, where it was found, or a museum to see it in a collection.

Rupert Publishes Nude Photos


The New York Post on Sunday published nude photographs of Melania Trump, wife of billionaire developer and US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump (R-Flimflam), that were taken in the 1990s.

The photos were taken during a 1995 modelling session in Manhattan and were published by defunct French men's magazine Max, the tabloid reported.

"This was a picture taken for a European magazine prior to my knowing Melania. In Europe, pictures like this are very fashionable and common," Efe news quoted Donald Trump as telling the Post.

The modelling session took place shortly after Melania arrived in the Big Apple and three years before she met Trump at a New York Fashion Week party.

Eroding Alaska Village


A tiny island village on Alaska's storm-battered western coast is entering a new chapter in its decades-long pursuit to move the entire community from its badly eroding shores to safer ground.

The Inupiat Eskimo community of Shishmaref will hold a special election next month asking residents if they should develop a new community at a nearby location on the mainland or stay put with added protections, such expanding a seawall that has never been completed.

Either scenario selected in the Aug. 16 vote would cost millions - money the community of nearly 600 doesn't have. Regardless of the vote, the impoverished village ultimately will have to search for funding to make the choice a reality.

"Doing nothing is not an option," Shishmaref Mayor Howard Weyiouanna Sr. said.

But even as government funding becomes increasingly difficult to obtain, erosion continues to eat away at the shoreline, toppling at least two houses as it comes ever closer to other homes. Erosion there and other coastal communities is an escalating problem blamed on climate change that has affected storm patterns in the region. Shishmaref, built on a narrow island just north of the Bering Strait, has been identified as one of Alaska's most eroded communities and among those that expect to ultimately require relocation.

Conduct Code Silenced Victims


The sexual assault scandal that took down Baylor University's president and revered football coach also found a problem with a bedrock of the school's faith-based education: a student conduct code banning alcohol, drugs and premarital sex that may have driven some victims into silence.

Investigators with the Pepper Hamilton law firm who dug into Baylor's response to sexual assault claims determined the school's rigid approach to drugs, alcohol and sex and "perceived judgmental responses" to victims who reported being raped "created barriers" to reporting assaults. Some women faced the prospect of their family being notified.

"A number of victims were told that if they made a report of rape, their parents would be informed of the details of where they were and what they were doing," said Chad Dunn, a Houston attorney who represents six women who have sued Baylor under the anonymous identification of Jane Doe.

The nation's largest Baptist university is a notably conservative place in one of the most conservative states in the country. Dancing on campus was banned until 1996. Fornication, adultery and homosexual acts were included in an official list of misconduct until May 2015, and the current policy stresses that "physical sexual intimacy is to be expressed in the context of marital fidelity."

Awkwardly Corrects Lumpy


ABC host George "Judas" Stephanopoulos corrected Donald Trump (R-Pendejo) after the Republican presidential nominee claimed that Russia was "not going to go into Ukraine."

In an interview on ABC's "This Week" that aired Sunday, Trump asserted that Russian President Vladimir Putin was not going to invade Ukraine, where pro-Russian rebels - and some Russian special forces - have been operating for several years despite Putin's reluctance to acknowledge any role .

"He's not going into Ukraine, just so you understand. He's not going to go to Ukraine," Trump said.

"Well, he's already there, isn't he?" Stephanopoulos replied.

"Well, he's there in a certain way, but I'm not there. You have Obama there," Trump said. "And frankly that part of the world is mess, under Obama. With all the strength that you're talking about, and with all the power of NATO, and all of this, in the mean time, [Putin] takes Crimea."

Will Withhold Judgment

Pope Frankie

Pope Francis said on Sunday that he will wait until Australian justice takes its course before taking a position on Cardinal George Pell, who is under investigation in his homeland over sexual abuse allegations.

But the pope, speaking to reporters aboard the plane returning to Rome form Poland, said Pell, now the Vatican's powerful economy minister, should not undergo a trial by the media or by rumor.

He said Pell had a right to the benefit of the doubt like all those accused.

Victims groups have called on the pope to sack Pell, the highest-ranking Vatican official to be accused of sexual abuse, or for him to resign.

Pell is seen as a test case for the pope because he has vowed zero tolerance for sexual abuse in the Church has said he would sack bishops found guilty of committing abuse or covering it up.

Denies Sending Lumpy A Letter


With the battle lines drawn for both major parties in the United States for the upcoming 2016 Presidential Election and both sides having picked their candidates, election season is starting to really heat up. The ever-outspoken Republican candidate, Donald Trump (R-Grifter), has already made his presence felt after the Democratic National Convention, having exchanges in the press with the father of a fallen soldier, while another target of his ire has been the debate schedule.

The presidential debate schedule has been set for some time now, set by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates back in September of 2015, with the first presidential debate set for Monday, September 26th and the second for Sunday, October 9th. And according to Gawker, they believe that Trump is already looking for a way to back out of said debates, thanks to his tweet complaining about the schedule and his rich history with debates.

The first debate goes up against a Monday Night Football game between the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons, while the second debate is up against the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants. While Trump is correct that NFL games do draw big ratings on television in the United States, it isn't unprecedented for debates to be up against stiff competition in the entertainment department. Trump took the story further, though, reports BuzzFeed, claiming that the NFL sent him a letter about their own confusion in the matter. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy released a statement refuting Trump's claims.

Once again Trump has found himself in a situation where he makes a bold claim to the public, only for the other party involved to quickly respond and refute his claims.

Strain In Skilled Workers

Aging Workforce

In a small town just south of New Hampshire's capital, General Electric runs two plants filled with workers building jet engines for the world's leading airlines.

With 800 workers, GE Aviation is the largest employer in town. But in the next five to 10 years, about a third of those workers are expected to retire. The company is scrambling to not only fill those jobs, but to find workers with the needed skills to take on jobs that are becoming ever more technologically advanced.

It's a problem expected to play out across the region and the country over the next decade, driven in part by the growth of the economy and a rash of retirements among baby boomers.

Nearly 60 percent of New Hampshire's manufacturing workers are over the age of 45, compared to 49 percent nationally, state and federal data shows. And from 2004 to 2014, the number of manufacturing workers in the state between the age of 35 and 44 dropped by nearly half. State projections show about 80 percent of open production jobs in the next decade will be to replace outgoing workers.

Nationally, a 2015 report from The Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte found that the skills gap "is real, and it is substantial," noting that over the next decade, 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will have to be filled and that the skills gap means that 2 million of those jobs will go unfilled.

Weekend Box Office

'Jason Bourne'

Between the return of Matt Damon as super spy "Jason Bourne," the promise of laughing along with a few fed-up ladies in the raunchy comedy "Bad Moms" and the dark internet thriller "Nerve," all of which had strong debuts, there was something new for everyone in theaters this weekend.

Even after a nearly 10-year hiatus, Matt Damon as Jason Bourne still draws a significant audience. The Paul Greengrass-directed sequel raked in a healthy $60 million in its opening weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.

"Bad Moms," which debuted at No. 3, just barely missed second place to "Star Trek Beyond," which fell 59 percent in its second weekend in theaters with $24 million. The Paramount sequel has earned $105.7 million to date.

"The Secret Life of Pets" continues to perform extremely well, taking fourth place with $18.2 million even after four weekends in theaters. The Illumination Entertainment and Universal film has earned a total of $296.2 million.

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. "Jason Bourne," $60 million ($50.1 million international).
    2. "Star Trek Beyond," $24 million ($13 million international).
    3. "Bad Moms," $23.4 million.
    4. "The Secret Life of Pets," $18.2 million ($29.5 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.
